I Love You Lord – a Song of Comfort

0

Friend, losing my beloved paralyzed streets ministry dog Mr. Simeon unexpectedly in my hotel room after years of developing an amazing God-given bond with him has devastated me. My heart is broken, and I feel crushed and still so shocked. But through it all, the Lord is using me to bear fruit for Him and for people in need of Him. If you’re in need of love and comfort, of peace and hope, of strength and a friend, of the Lord Jesus Christ and healing, please read this. Yesterday, the day I dragged my beloved dog’s body out of my hotel room to put in my car to take to the vet’s office, totally broken, I heard the Lord speak to my heart the word, SING. In other words SING to the Lord. Praise Him! Sing to Him! Yes, on the very day I felt I could have cried forever. Sing to the Lord! I don’t sing songs usually written by others. I sing little songs in my heart like a child’s simple song. I never in a million years despite being a long-time writer imagined writing a song to the Lord. Or poetry to Him. But this is what came to me, and I so hope the Lord will bless you and many others through it. I wrote this song, and I sang and sang yesterday whatever came to my heart to my beloved Lord! love & blessings, lara

I LOVE YOU LORD

I LOVE YOU LORD JESUS
I LOVE YOU OH LORD
I LOVE YOU LORD JESUS
I LOVE YOU OH LORD
EVEN WHEN IT’S HARD
I STILL LOVE YOU
I LOVE YOU LORD JESUS
IT’S TRUE IT’S TRUE
TAKE ME IN YOUR ARMS
AND CARRY ME ON
FOR THIS IS TOO MUCH
TO BEAR ON MY OWN
BUT YOU OH LORD
DOTH BRING COMFORT MY GOD
BEYOND ANY COMFORT
THIS WORLD CAN BRING
I PUT MY TRUST IN YOU
OH LORD
AND VOW TO LIVE
THE WAY YOU CALL ME TO DO
I COULD QUIT IT’S SO HARD
WHAT I’M NOW GOING THROUGH
BUT INSTEAD I PROMISE
TO LOVE AND SERVE YOU
NOW MORE THAN EVER
I WANT TO PLEASE YOU
TO BRING YOU GLORY
HONOR AND PRAISE, I DO

DRAW ME NEAR TO YOU
AS I DRAW CLOSER AND
CLOSER TO YOU MY FATHER
I CRY OUT TO YOU
MY SWEET BELOVED GOD
NOTHING’S TOO HARD

SO HIDE ME NOW UNDER
THE SHADOW OF YOUR WINGS
SEND ME ANGELS
AND HEAL MY HEART

WHERE I AM WEAK
FOR THE CRY OF MY HEART
IS NOT TO GET STUCK
IN MY SORROW
BUT NOW MORE THAN EVER
TO GO OUT INTO THE WORLD
AND TELL PEOPLE NEAR AND FAR
YOU JESUS ARE THE CHRIST
YOU JESUS ARE LORD
THE ONLY WAY TO ETERNAL LIFE
TO HEAVEN WHERE THERE WILL BE
NO MORE PAIN NOR SORROW OH LORD
NOTHING DARK NOR EVIL NOR BAD
YOU ARE THE TRUTH
YOU ARE THE LIFE
YOU ALMIGHTY GOD OH LORD
WHEN WE REPENT AND
BELIEVE IN YOU AS LORD
WHEN WE TURN FROM
OUR SINS AND BELIEVE
THAT YOU DIED ON THE CROSS
AND WERE RAISED
FROM THE DEAD
WHEN WE COMMIT OUR HEARTS
AND LIVES TO YOU
AND LIVE FOR YOU
NO LONGER FOR US
ACCORDING TO YOUR WAYS
AND NO LONGER THE WORLD’S
THEN WE ARE YOURS FOREVER
OH LORD AND YOU ARE OURS
FOR ETERNITY LORD
NO HELL FOR US
NO LAKE OF FIRE
NO TORMENT FOREVER
APART FROM YOU
FOR YOU FORGIVE US
WHEN WE SURRENDER TO YOU
SO NOW AS THE SORROW
TRIES TO OVERTAKE ME LORD
I CHOOSE TO REST
IN YOU MY GOD
AND TO REJOICE THAT YOU
ARE LORD OF LORDS
AND KING OF KINGS
GOD FOREVER
FATHER GOD, PLEASE HELP
THIS WORLD TURN TO YOU
AND LOOK FORWARD
TO THE DAY
THE PAINS OF THIS LIFE
ARE BEHIND US OH GOD
AND WE’RE IN YOUR PRESENCE FOREVER
IN THE LIGHT OF YOUR LOVE
I PLACE MYSELF IN YOUR HANDS
I’M HERE TO DO YOUR WILL OH GOD
I WON’T TURN AWAY
BUT COMMIT MYSELF TO YOU
MORE THAN EVER BEFORE
YOU MY COMFORTER
YOU MY GOD
HOLD ME…NOW
HELP ME…NOW
HEAL ME…NOW
STRENGTHEN ME…NOW
FILL ME AFRESH
WITH YOUR HOLY SPIRIT
AND USE ME OH LORD
TO GLORIFY YOU

OF MY TRIAL

I LEAN BACK ON YOUR EVERLASTING ARMS
AND TAKE JOY AND TAKE JOY IN YOU….
