5 Jun 1976

if I was a bass drum, I would beat for You
and if I was a bird, You know, I'd tweet for You
if I was a lemon I'd be sweet for You
but all that I can do is love You
oh, if I was a river, I would run for You
and if I was a playground, I'd have fun for You
if I was the West, I would be won for You
but the best that I can do is love You

I only wish that I had more to give
I only wish I had more lives to live for You
but everything I've got belongs to You, Lord
so take me, I am Yours—what else can I do?

oh, if I was a cannon, I would boom for You...

20 Mar 1976

blessed be His name
glory to His name
Jesus holds all things in His hand
let us praise His holy name

(repeat chorus)

even in our darkness
we know His love won't fail
when the best that you can seem to feel is bad
so bad
His love will show the way
when those that you look up to let you down
Jesus won't desert you
He'll heal when others hurt you
He'll chase away the memories
and help you love again

(repeat chorus)

Lyrics & notes

18 Jan 1977

this morning when the sun rose
there was a rainbow in the clouds at the horizon
it made a circle 'round the sun
to warn the fleeing darkness
a multicolored halo
a ring to wed the weeping with the joy

and when the night had broken
the colors ran to take there proper places
the blue filled all the sky
the yellow crowned the sun
the green was told to wait another season
and whiteness fell to cover all the rest
and some fell in my eyes
and in my heart

You are the sunrise in my morning
You are the rainbow in my sky
the darkness...

19 Jul 1975

when You reach out your arms to me
and take me to your heart
I know that there will never be
a time when we're apart
each time I read your book I'm filled
with wonder through and through
then even though You're who You are
You love me like You do

and Jesus
all my days I'll sing your praise
and lift up your name
everywhere I'll tell them how you care
I'll tell them why You came

I know You made the stars above
You call them all by name
but I don't know how it could be
You love me just the same
I pray that You will fill...

31 Aug 1976

ah, Falling Star,
You fill my eyes with such surprise
and the sky seems
more empty than before when You're gone

oh, how You shine!
You can break right through
this darkness of mine
oh, how You shine!
You can take away
this darkness of mine

ah, Morning Star,
You fill the night with such pure light
and You cause the morning sun
to blush for shame
when You rise

ah, Morning Star,
You fill me with such glory when You rise
Falling Star,
You fell down from the sky
to give me light

7 Oct 1976

all my life I've lived alone
they just can't seem to remember my name
I'd live and die—and still I'd be unknown
guess there's really no one else to blame

but then You came into my world
You gave me love I'd never known
You sang me songs I'd never heard
and then You touched me
and made me Your own

Hallelujah, Jesus loves me
Hallelujah, Jesus cares
Hallelujah, Jesus loves me
Hallelujah, praise His name

now I need no place to hide
I know I've found just what I'm looking for
and now I know I've got love on my side
how could...

Lyrics

Lyrics by Hannah Hurnard,
based on The Song of Solomon

how lovely, how nimble, are thy feet
O prince's daughter
they sparkle and flash and can run more fleet
than running water
on all the mountains there is no gazelle
no roe or hind
can o'ertake thee nor leap as well
but lag behind

thy joints and thighs are a supple band
on which are met
fair jewels a cunning master hand
hath fitly set
in all the palace, search where'er...

1 Aug 1973

just to think about You, Lord
makes me feel like singing
and just to think that You still care
it makes me feel like bringing
all my love to You
and I do
just to know a love so true

just to think how You have made
this empty life worth living
and just to know that You'll be there
it makes me feel like giving
my whole life to You
and I do
makes the sky seem so blue
just to think about You, Lord

I will never understand the reason for Your love
or the reason why You think that I'm worth thinking of
maybe that's what makes...

my beloved is the chiefest
of ten thousand anywhere
he is altogether lovely
he is altogether fair
my beloved is so gentle
and is strong beyond compare

Lyrics

Lyrics by Hannah Hurnard,
based on The Song of Solomon

set me as a seal upon thy heart
thou, love, more strong than death
that I may feel through every part
thy burning, fiery breath
and then like wax held in the flame
may take the imprint of thy name

set me as a seal upon thine arm
thou, love, that bursts the grave
thy coals of fire can never harm
but only purge and save
thou, jealous love, thou, burning flame,
oh, burn out...
