THE GREATEST LOVE STORY OF ALL

Move my heart, O Lord,
Move my fingers, too.
Write this story, Lord
So I may glorify You!

Come onto these pages, Lord,
Fill them line by line.
Let me feel your power, Lord,
In my heart and mind.

I want to sing Your praises, Lord;
The occasions have arrived.
That I may glorify You, Lord,
By showing You’re alive.

You’re alive and living in me,
Of that there is no doubt.
Your truth has truly set me free,
From the roof-tops I must shout.

You are the lion and the lamb.
You are all things, great and true.
You are, in fact, the great I Am.
We are the miracles of You.

You made all things of heaven and earth.
You spoke and they appeared.
You designed the miracle of birth,
You are to be revered.

You gave us life; You gave us choice,
That we should come to You.
You created us with just Your voice.
You breathed our souls anew.

You gave us commandments, Lord
By which, we are to live.
Our instructions to work toward:
To love all, and forgive.

We broke Your commands, one by one,
We went the other way.
We crucified Your only Son,
On that terrible day!

He died a cruel death, for the sins of man,
Though sins, He committed none.
It was part of Your great salvation plan,
That Your will on earth be done.

For us, he paid the ultimate price,
And our sins, they are no more.
For us, you gave the great sacrifice,
The sins of man, Jesus bore.

He’s the way, the truth, the life, O Lord,
And the only door to You.
He was tortured, hated, and abhorred,
So all sinners could pass through.

For He shed his blood on Calvary’s tree,
That we might have life, everlasting.
Jesus gave his life, even for me,
A gift that’s ours, just for the asking.

You raised Him up, after he was buried,
So He could take His rightful place.
All our debts and burdens that He carried,
Showed Your majestic love and grace.

You sent us Your great Holy Spirit,
To dwell within us, all our days,
Not for us to hide from, or fear It,
But to learn of You and Your ways.

We must worship You, as our Creator;
We must surrender to you, all.
We must choose You now, rather than later.
We must promptly respond to your call.

God, in three persons, blessed Trinity;
The Father, Son and Holy Ghost,
Creator of life, and infinity.
By faith we come, so no man can boast.

Help us Lord, that we may honor You,
And daily seek Your face.
May we give You thanks in all we do,
For Your mercy and grace.

Teach us to love, Lord, and be responsive to Your call.
Thank You for life, and for all things,
And for Jesus Christ, the greatest love story of all,
The Lord of Lords and King of Kings!


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

I must say that He was faithful to answer the prayerful requests of those first few stanzas. Beautifully written, beautifully received. Treava
