Victory

Above every distraction, above every lie
A battle cry rings out
Singing of the victory
Of the risen, reigning Lord

Who already fought the battle and
Who already won it

So we on earth, need not strive
To win, thing we could never attain
But that we might simply rest,
In Him and, who He is

And praise, His victory
Praise the One, the risen Son

Who died, and rose again
Who stands
Faithful, forevermore and
Reigns on High, above it all

Victorious and true, forevermore
Matchless in all He does

In mercy and
In justice alike
May we praise His name, forevermore
In songs and testimonies of

Lives lived, for His name
Of days, and breaths taken, for His glory

To Him, who is most worthy
To Him, who is so good
To Him who is unending,
Matchless, in all His love

Merciful, and true forevermore
May we trust His name alone!

Stars

Memories of brighter days
Flicker in the night sky
Alight with wishes of the past and
Surrounded by the black of present

What beauty can there be in this
These relics of the past
So distant, so cold and yet
So surrounded by the infinite

Of eternal, distant black

A reminder, not of past but of
Future lays here in
For in that distant sky,
Burning bright with stars, we see

Hope, of tomorrow
Etched across the heavens as
He labors, above it all
Reigning, over everything

The King of Heaven, and of earth
Who knows each star by name
Therein, that sky has written in
A memorial, to His great Name

For distant stars, were formed by Him
Eternal darkness, where He walks
Each light, He knows by name and
Each figure formed by His hands

So when we look, up to the sky
Be not saddened by the past that once
Dwelled beneath these stars
Nor be troubled, for tomorrow or

Frightened for today by
Endless, mysterious black, or by
Those distant twinkles of light, that seem
To dim as days go on

Instead remember, the One who formed them and
Knows each one by name
And He who knows, that infinite blackness
And holds eternity in His hands

Take these memories, of past and
These reminders of the infinite
And see in them, the peculiar glory
Of Him, who bid them to shine and

Placed them there in, those Heavens vast
Exactly where He willed
For His purposes, for His plans, they shine
And He knows them all by name

Just as we, here on the earth
Are too made, and formed by His hands
For His plans, and purposes
May we submit, as they in Heavens do

To shine, for Him alone

And in our shining, in our obedience find
Peace, like no other as
We meet, face to face the One
Who knows each star by name

And too, knows us the same
May we revel, in His majesty
Now and forevermore
He who hung the stars, and too

Would come to us, and make a way
That He could
Know us the same
Through His Son, the eternal born of Heaven who

Died upon a tree

And rose again, in victory
To stars above(‘s) delight
To break, the bonds of hell and
Shatter powers of darkness

How marvelous is He
What a King, what a Savior
May we praise Him, forevermore
And remember Him, as we see

Those lights, hung in the Heavens
May we praise Him who holds them there
And too has redeemed us
That wonderful Savior, the everlasting God

May we praise His name forevermore!
My God we cling to You!

In Need

Give me something that I may chase
A dream that I may pursue
A thing, greater than I
A thing I have never known

Give me something to chase
Show me a better World
I am desperate, and I am hungry
Give me more than I can know

I have nothing
Yet I have it all
The world has given me momentary happiness
But my soul, it longs for more

I am starving for purpose
I am desperate for a dream
Give me that which I have never known
Yes, give me that I have never seen

For I know, what world does offer
I know what path has wrought
All the world has given me
Is broken bones and shattered heart

My soul, it thirsts
Yet I know not where to look
Give me a purpose, lest I die
Give me more

Give me that which I have never known
For I am desperate
I am starving
My soul, it calls for that

That which I have never known
Give me Jesus. Give me Jesus.
Give me Him which I have never known
Give me He too wonderful for me

For I know, there is no other thing
I know there is no other way
So give me Him, give me this Jesus
Lest I die and fall to hell

For I know no other way
And my soul, it must have Him
Lest I die and fall to hell
Give me Him which I have never known

Give me Jesus. Give me Jesus
Him I have never known, yet my soul calls for
Give me reason, give me way
To seek Him in my life

I know not how to find Him but
I know He will find me
So I ask, dear God in Heaven
Give me You I have never known

Give me this Jesus.
For I am in need of You.
