Prayer Songs



A FATHER'S PRAYER



O Lord, I humbly come to You with this my earnest plea:

Lord, help me to become the man that You would have me be.

Purge me from sin; cleanse me within;

and fill my life with You, O Lord,

Your love and pow'r to know.

Help me each day, along life's way,

to keep You first in all I do,

and by Your grace, to grow.


O God, my Father, full of love, Your grace abounds to me.

Lord, through my life may You alone be all my children see.

Purge us from sin; cleanse us within;

and fill our lives with You, O Lord,

Your love and pow'r to know.

Help us each day, along life's way,

to keep You first in all we do,

and by Your grace, to grow.


And Lord, when all our days are done,

when life on earth is through,

we then will know life's greatest joy: eternal life with You.

There we shall sing, eternally;

and as we gather 'round Tour throne,

we'll praise our Lord and King:

"Thanks be to God! Praise Him alone!"

But until then, O Lord, we pray,

to You the lost we'll bring.





A NEW HEART



Lord, I come now before you, to lay my life at your feet.

Sweep now over my spirit, and make me complete.

Lord, please give me a new heart, and free me from my sin.

I want to be holy, and wholly pure within.


Lord, please quiet my spirit, that I may hear when you call.

Free me from earthly passions, and don't let me fall.

Fill me full with Your presence; surround me with Your love.

Lord, I want to know You, and seek things only above.


Teach me, Lord, to be faithful, Your Word and will to obey.

Help me follow You only, and never to stray.

Lord, please make me Your servant, and fill me with Your grace.

I want to live for You, both now and then, face to face.




AS FOR ME AND MY HOUSE



Chorus:


As for me and my house,

We will serve You, Lord,

all the days of our live.

As for me and my house,

we will serve You, Lord;

yes, we will serve You, Lord!


For, Lord God,

we love and honor You;

You alone are worthy to be praised!

Holy God, we worship You;

yes, we've come to worship You!

(Chorus)


O Lord God,

the beginning and the End!

Your great love has saved us from our sin!

Lord, we bless Your Holy Name!

Yes, we bless Your Holy Name!

(Chorus)


For, O Lord, we exalt

and praise Your Name;

and with all our heart,

soul, mind, and strength,

we love You, O Lord God!

Yes, we love You, our Lord God!


Reprise:


For, Lord God,

I love and honor You;

You alone are worthy of my praise!

Holy God, I worship You;

Lord, I'm here to worship You!

Lord, I'm here to worship You!

Lord, I'm here to worship You!




BECAUSE I LOVE YOU, LORD



I want to know You more,

I want to know Your heart,

I want to know Your Word,

Because I love You Lord.


I want to follow You,

I want to do Your will,

I want to do what's right,

Because I love You, Lord.




BE STILL, MY SOUL

(Tune: PRECIOUS PEACE)


Be still, my soul, the Lord is on thy side;

bear patiently the cross of grief or pain;

leave to thy God to order and provide;

in every change He faithful will remain.

Be still, my soul, thy best, thy Heavenly Friend

through thorny ways leads to a joyful end.


Be still, my soul, thy God doth undertake

to guide the future as he has the past.

Thy hope, thy confidence let nothing shake;

all now mysterious shall be bright at last.

Be still, my soul, the waves and winds still know

His voice who ruled them while He dwelt below.


Be still, my soul, the hour is hastening on

when we shall be forever with the Lord,

when disappointment, grief, and fear are gone,

sorrow forgot, love's purest joys restored.

Be still, my soul, when change and tears are past,

all safe and blessed we shall meet at last.




DRAWN TO YOU


O my God, when I consider all the ways

You show me Your great love;

I wonder why You'd go so far

to love one such as me.

Yet it's not what I've done nor who I am

that draws You to me;

It's Who You are and what You've done

that draws my soul to You.


O my God, when I was lost in sin,

when I was Your great enemy;

You came to me and saved my soul

and now I am Your friend.

Your great love is more than I can comprehend 

this side of heav'n; 

For all You are and all You've done, 

my soul is drawn to You.


O my God, I'll gladly bear my cross 

and live for You throughout my days; 

No less You've done for me, I know, 

and still You love me so! 

Let me show to others all around 

how much You mean to me; 

For all You are and all You've done, 

Lord, draw us all to You.






FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS 


For such a time as this, Lord, You've come

to bring salvation to ev'ryone.

With You beside us, Lord, we have no fear;

for such a time as this, Lord, You're here.


For such a time as this, our burdens bear,

and hold us close to You, Your comfort share.

When storms assail us, Lord, and foes increase;

for such a time as this, be our Peace.


For such a time as this, light our way,

and show us how to live, this we pray.

When life o'ertakes us, Lord, in you we'll hide;

for such a time as this, be our Guide.


For such a time as his, help us show

Your love to ev'ryone; let them know

their hurts and pain You'll heal, their sin forgive;

for such a time as this, may we live.


For such a time as this, Lord, You've come

to bring salvation to ev'ryone.

With You beside us, Lord, we have no fear;

for such a time as this, Lord, You're here.





GRACIOUS SPIRIT, HOLY GHOST

Acts 2; 1 Cor. 13

(New Hymn Tune Setting)


Gracious Spirit, Holy Ghost,

taught by Thee, we covet most

of Thy gifts at Pentecost,

holy, heavenly love.


Love is kind and suffers long,

love is meek and thinks no wrong.

Love than death itself more strong;

therefore, give us love.


Prophecy will fade away,

melting in the light of day;

love will ever with us stay;

therefore, give us love.


Faith will vanish into sight;

hope be emptied in delight;

love in heaven will shine more bright;

therefore, give us love.





I WAS GLAD! (Call to Worship)

Psalm 122:1


I was glad when they said unto me,

"Let us go into the house of the Lord."

Let's sing praises in worship to Thee;

for You alone are worthy of praise!

We lift Your Name and adore You, our King;

to You all glory and honor we bring!

Hear our praises and worship, we pray,

and be enthroned before us, Lord, today!





LORD, WE HAVE COME TO WORSHIP YOU

Lord, we have come to worship You,
for You alone are worthy of our praise.
Come fill us now with Your Presence, Lord;
may all we do bring honor to You.
May all we do bring all honor to You.



MAKE ME A CAPTIVE, LORD

(New Hymn Tune Setting)


Make me a captive, Lord,

and then I shall be free;

force me to render up my sword,

and I shall conqueror be;

I sink in life's alarms

when by myself I stand;

Imprison me within Thine arms,

and strong shall be my hand.


My heart is weak and poor

until it's master find;

it has no spring of action sure--

it varies with the wind;

it cannot freely move

till Thou has wrought its chain;

enslave it with Thy matchless love,

and deathless it shall reign.


My pow'r is faint and low

till I have learned to serve;

it wants the needed fire to glow,

it wants the breeze to nerve;

it cannot drive the world

until itself be driv'n;

its flag can only be unfurled

when Thou shalt breathe from heav'n.


My will is not my own

till Thou hast made it Thine;

if it would reach the monarch's throne

it must its crown resign;

it only stands unbent,

amid the clashing strife,

when on Thy bosom it has leaned,

and found in Thee its life.





MAY GOD'S NATURE BE MINE


Turn the fall stream of nature's tide;

let all our actions tend

to Thee, their Source; Thy love the guide,

Thy glory be the end.


Chorus:


Heaveny Adam, life divine,

change my nature into Thine;

move and spread throughout my soul,

actuate and fill the whole.


Earth then a scale to heav'n shall be;

sense shall point out the road;

the creatures all shall lead to Thee,

and all we taste be God.

(Chorus)


Lord, arm me with Thy Spirit's might,

since I am call'd by Thy great name:

in Thee my wand'ring thoughts unite,

of all my works be Thou the aim; 

Thy love attend me all my days,

and my sole business be Thy praise

(Chorus)


Eager for Thee I ask and pant,

so strong the principle divine,

carries me out with sweet constraint,

till all my hallow'd soul be Thine;

Plunged in the Godhead's deepest sea,

and lost in Thine immensity!

(Chorus)

for my help comes from You, O Lord, my God;

for You have heard the voice of my prayer,

You have helped me, O Lord, and my heart exults in You.


O Lord, You're our Strength, You're our Refuge and Help,

You're our Savior and Shepherd now and always;

please bless us, O Lord, and anoint us we pray,

and forever be near as we live in Your Presence, O Lord.






PSALM 51 - PENITENT'S PRAYER


Lord, have mercy upon me, O God,

according to Your lovingkindness.

I acknowledge my transgressions,

and my sin is ever before me.


Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean;

wash me clean from all my transgressions,

blot out all my sin from Your sight,

and then I shall be much whiter than snow.


Create in me a clean heart, O God,

and renew a right spirit within me.

Cast me not away from Your Presence,

and take not Your Holy Spirit from me.


Restore to me the joy of Your salvation,

and hold me up with Your free Spirit.

Then will I teach transgressors Your ways,

and sinners shall be converted to You.

SOVEREIGN LORD

Hab. 1-2


Sov'reign Lord, it's You alone I seek to know and love, 

for there is no one else I know who cares for me like You.

No matter what I face in life,I'm always mindful of

the way You're always there for me, so tender and so true.


Oftentimes I do not understand why things go wrong; 

why people suffer pain and loss, why sorrow seems their fate.

I, too, have known such deep despair, and agony so long,

and depths of shame, remorse, regret; my failures are so great.


Yet there You are, You never leave me when I've gone astray;

You're always ready to forgive, to comfort and restore.

Through tears and fears that I will face, I only have to pray,

and You will hear and answer me; may I but listen more.


I can trust Your sov'reignty whatever comes my way,

for true to Your great promises, You've always faithful been.

Your sov'regnty led You to die to bring me peace that day;

so faithfully I'll bear my cross each day for You till Heav'n


Sov'reign Lord, I thank You for the warmth of Your embrace,

for saving me, redeeming me, and drawing near to me. 

Help me to love with  great love, to emulate Your grace

to others all around me so they, too, might be set free.

Alleluia! Alleluia!

Your praise we'll forever sing!


All around us, Lord, we see

Your love and grace and mercy free;

all Your creation joyfully

reflects Your pow'r and majesty!

(Refrain)


Sov'reign God, before Your throne,

we humbly bow and bless Your Name;

for in Your presence, Lord, alone

Your endless blessings we proclaim!

(Refrain)

 YOUR PURE LOVE ALONE


Is there a thing beneath the sun,
that strives with You my heart to share?
Ah! Tear it thence, and reign alone,
the Lord of ever motion there!

Strange fires afar from my heart remove;
my every act, word, thought, be love!


O grant that nothing in my soul
may dwell, but Your pure love alone!
O may Your love possess me whole,
my joy, my treasure, and my crown!

Strange fires afar from my heart remove;
My every act, word, thought, be love!
