My Savior, My God

By: Aaron Shust

I am not skilled to understand
What God has willed,
What God has planned;
I only know at His right hand
Is One who is my Savior.

I take Him at His word and deed,
Christ died to save me, this I read
And In my heart I find a need
Of Him to be my Savior.

That He would leave His place on high,
And come for sinful man to die,
You count it strange, so once did I,
Before I knew my Savior.

My Savior loves, my Savior lives,
My Savior’s always there for me;
My God He was, my God He is,
My God is always gonna be.

Yes, living, dying, let me bring
My strength, my solace from this spring
That He who lives to be my King,
Once died to be my Savior.

Something Every Heart Is Loving

By: Gerhardt Tersteegen

Something every heart is loving,
If not Jesus, none can rest;
Lord, my heart to Thee is given,
Take it, for it loves Thee best.

Thus I cast the world behind me,
Jesus most beloved shall be;
Beauteous more than all things beauteous,
He alone is joy to me.

Bright with all eternal radiance
Is the glory of Thy face;
Thou art loving, sweet and tender,
Full of pity, full of grace.

All Your love for me,
All poured out on me;
Lord, here I give my heart to Thee.

When I hated, Thou didst love me,
Shedd’st for me Thy precious blood;
Still Thou lovest, lovest ever.
Shall I not love Thee, my God?

Keep my heart still faithful to Thee,
That my earthly life may be
But a shadow to that glory
Of my hidden life in Thee.

Because of His Love For Me

By: Ian Konopinski

Now tell me how could it be,
Because of His love for me,
That Jesus would die, would be crucified,
Would hang on a tree for me?
To think of this love so strong,
He suffered reproach and wrong,
Despising the shame, enduring the pain,
For those who mocked all along.

Lord Jesus, how could it be,
Because of Your love for me:
Lord, how could You plead,
Lord, how could You bleed,
For a sinner like me?
Oh, boundless love divine,
That ransomed this soul of mine!
The life that You gave
Has opened the way,
For me to be saved.

Oh how did these words so sweet
With hearing of faith come meet
And help my heart see that Jesus loved me
And gave Himself up for me?
Though I am just helpless, poor,
And sinful, vile to the core,
Through mercy and grace, He lifted my face
To behold His love so sure.

Because You have bought my soul,
You saved me and made me whole,
You’re more than enough,
Thus conquered by love,
I’ll let You have full control.
Because of Your sacrifice,
Because, Lord, You paid the price,
Though it be so small,
I give You my all,
Lord Jesus, take my whole life.
