Lent is fast approaching
Lord take my shaking hand.
Lead me back to You

Teach me how to stand.
I have failed so often Father

To walk this Little Way.
As I struggle once again
Guide what I do and say.
I keep failing sadly
In all I strive to do.
So once again I kneel
And tearfully entreat You.
Help me start again
Make my heart again true.
I lift it up with love
And place my trust in You.

Adoration Hour

Sweetest hour of earth I have known
Spent in gentle quiet prayer.
Precious time dipping from Heaven's well
Spent with Christ kneeling there.
No other moment seems to last
Nor feed my soul with sweeter bread.
Christ does hold my heart at peace
And bids me empty my pounding head.
The world waits at those doors
On this it dare not intrude.
God holds strife at bay
And permits nothing foul or rude.
Would that I could stay forever
But I carry it always inside.
And I know one day I will remain
Forever in my Savior's Heart to hide.

Christmas Cookie Baking Day

It's Christmas cookie baking day.
To make this week complete.
It is time to frost and decorate
Lord help me keep it sweet.
Time to bake the gingerbread
And sugar cookies too.
To wish sweet friends both far and near
A Christmas warm and true.
So God bless and keep each one of you.
God bless you every day.
May Christmas not come once a year
But always with you stay.

Lord I know You are coming.
I can feel You on Your way.
Quickly we are speeding
On to Christmas Day.
Lord heal my wounded heart,
Make it ready to greet You.
I am so sinful a person.
I simply have no clue.
I am not worthy,
To behold Your precious Face.
How thankful I am Your coming
Is an act of loving Grace.
Mold me Lord and make me,
Be what You see in me.
Precious Lord and Savior,
Who came to set us free.

Old Fashioned Christmas

Dear Father in Heaven,
I was thinking last night.
Remembering Christmases long ago.
Those presents and gifts
I just had to have
Don't even live on in my memory.
I remember more clearly
The love that we shared.
Me and my family.
I remember so clearly
The joy we once had
Dragging home a raggedy tree.
Dear Father in Heaven,
Give us all that gift
That lives on forever in our hearts.
Give us the joy
Of an old fashioned Christmas
The joy of the Babe
Born to set us free.
Give us that gift
Dearest Father above
Give us again the gift that is Love.
That is what Christmas means to me.

So much I have dearest Lord,
To thank You for each day.
So many blessings You have given
To me along life's way.
My family is healthy Lord,
My loved ones all are well.
You gave Your life to take us Home
And snatch our souls from Hell.
We have food on our table
And shelter from the storm.
We have everything we need Lord,
And Your Lord to keep us warm.
I thank You dearest Father,
For every wondrous thing.
When we bow our heads this Thursday
My thankful heart will sing;
Thank You dearest Savior.
I love You more than I can say.
God bless each friend and loved one
Now and this Thanksgiving day.

Cold As Ice

Have we grown so cold,
To callous to even feel,
Pain and human warmth?
Lord, this seems unreal.
Why are our hearts iced over?
Why does our blood run cold?
Why has the milk of kindness,
Been tossed out as if it is old?
Lord melt our frozen hearts.
Light Your fire within our core.
Lord give us Your loving Heart,
So that we can care once more.
