Even in the deepest valley

I know You walk with me

I feel Your Holy Spirit close

as it brings me to my knees

When faced with trials and heartache

I trust You know what’s best

So I give to You my weary heart

and ease into Your rest.

Rest in Him

Matthew 11

Through tear filled eyes I seek You

I long for Your embrace

You’re always there to meet me

and wipe my tear stained face

I look to You for answers

I know Your way is best

I give to You my burdens

and in Your peace, I find rest.

Be Still

Be StillBe Still


Be still my soul

and wait on God

His timing will never be wrong


Be still my soul

His way is right

It’s waiting that makes one strong


Be still my soul

the time will come

To see what He has in store


Be still my soul

until the day

That He finally opens that door.

“Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; do not fret when people succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes.”

~Psalm 37:7

“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.  For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.”

Matthew 7:7-8

“Wait for the Lord;
be strong and take heart
and wait for the Lord.”

Psalm 27:14

With Me Always


In the darkness
You’re my light

When I’m lost
You’ll be my guide

When I stumble
I know You’ll catch me

You’re always walking
by my side

When I’m facing giants
You give me strength to take them down

When my joy is found in You
I rarely ever wear a frown

No matter what life throws me
You’re always there to see me through

In all life’s trials and troubles
I hear You whisper “My child, I love you.”

Safe In His Arms



When my burdens are heavy

I fall to my knees

I know my Lord Jesus

Will lift them from me




When the road ahead seems dark

I look for His light

In the midst of my troubles

He’s right by my side


When it seems like I’m falling

I land safe in His arms

He’ll always be there to catch me

To keep me safe from all harm

In Jesus’ Name

Jesus Name

In Jesus’ Name


The Alpha, Omega

Beginning and End,

Messiah, our Saviour,

The ultimate Friend


Lord, God Almighty

The Lamb that was slain

Redeemer, Creator,

On earth He shall reign


His titles are many

But He answers to all,

He’ll stick right beside you

When on His name you call


We’re His beloved,

His daughters and sons,

With Him as our Father

There’s not a battle that can’t be won.

Not on my Own

I cannot do this on my own,

I need You every hour,

every minute of everyday.

I cannot do this on my own,

it’s You I need to lead the way.

Once a sinner,

now saved by Grace,

my heart aches for that

blood stained face.

I cannot do this on my own,

without You I am nothing.

It’s your name I will always praise,

even when the world tries to hush it.

In this crazy world of darkness

Your light shines bright,

Your love is strong,

because of You the enemy can’t harm us.

I cannot do this on my own,

I’m so thankful I don’t have to.

My Savior’s always by my side,

through this life I know He’ll be my guide.
