O set your mind on things above
Far from the strife on earth below
And seek the Lord in heartfelt prayer
That Jesus Christ men come to know.
And pray that truth and righteousness
Upon the earth again will flow
That God will send revival fire
And in our hearts the flame will grow!

O set your mind on things above
And seek Christ’s wisdom when you pray
For troubled times the world must face
For from God’s laws it turned away.
But Christ above who loves us so
With outstretched arms still saves, restores
O pray that many come to know
Christ’s love and peace forevermore!

“Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.”
[Colossians 3:2]

The joy of the Lord
Brightens my days
Makes me forget my troubles!

The joy of the Lord
Lifts me above
All of my worldly problems!

The joy of the Lord
Shall be my strength
When I put my trust in Him!

[repeat]

The Need For Quiet Days

The Need For Quiet Days

Lord, there has been a loss for me
In all the recent days,
I haven’t made the time to be
With You in all my ways.
Oh yes, I talk to You and share
The trials that I face,
And always thank You for Your help
With problems You erase.

But deep within my heart I yearn
For quiet days with You,
When I have time to seek Your face
Your will to know and do.
My every need You will supply
When I am one with You,
Upheld by Your amazing grace
Your love forever true!

Some have wandered far away
From Jesus Christ their Lord
Once they lived by faith in Him
Abiding by God’s word.
It can be a gradual thing
We may not see the harm
Till we’re caught up in the world
And can’t tell right from wrong.

Satan watches Jesus’ sheep
To see if one will stray
Looking for the vulnerable
That he can make his prey.
Jesus knows our every move
And lessons we must learn
Even though we wander off
He calls us back again…

Even though we wander off
He calls us back again.

“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins
and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

O Come To Christ

O Come To Christ

O come to Christ
Make a new start
And seek for Him
With all your heart.
For Jesus came
To set men free
And gave His life
For you and me!

O come to Christ
He’ll make things new
He gives us peace
We never knew.
Always forgives
Though sin abounds
And plants our feet
On higher ground!

O come to Christ
Make a new start
The love of God
Will fill your heart.
Before your birth
Your name He knew
And He’d have died
If just for you!
