Under my blankets at night__
so cosy I would be__
I look through my window at the stars
The moonlight resting there_
I ponder my days activities
when I went for a walk
I thank you God and I praise You
for all these comforts of mine.
You've blessed my day
You've blessed my night
I'm precious in Your sight.

Living_ with Jesus
I don’t have religion, I have joy
all Your praises to employ.
I thank you Jesus for giving me
a better life and liberty.
You saw my quest for happiness
then Your Love was manifest
You gave me life and You gave me joy
I would not spoil it for anything.
Why should I want to add to You
where would I find
and what would I choose
All the blessings I’ve found with You
in You I find my everything.
You’re my contentment
You are my PEACE
You’ve given to me sweet release
from the stresses of life
and this world of strife
In You I find Perfect Peace.
I look to You in all my needs
I know You provide
and I’m at ease
If there is something I’ve learnt from You
I’ve only to come, I can count on You.
is a tempest
You’re at the helm
oft he ship that I’m on
in this earthly realm.
You guide me to safety
You steer a straight course.
I live in Your Triumphs
You make me FREE.
You’re my satisfaction
Why would I trade this for anything?
worldly bondage, religious laws?
You’ve guided me surely to New Shores.

The Real Jesus relates to us in ways
that are Relevant to our daily lives...
I wanted to keep my feet on the ground
now my feet are on higher ground
You gave me a sense of direction and more
my sense of worth You fully restored.
When I was a child I had faith to leap
without thought or care of my balance to keep.
When I was young I’d set out for adventure
now I seek once more to venture.
You gave to me the power of CHOICE
now in these things my soul does REJOICE.
You’ve given to me a platform for life
Joy, Peace and Love
That come from above.
Your victories triumphant are mine to apply
To life situations, I do more than get by
You gave to me such liberty
Now,with such blessing I am free.

It’s Nice to be Free
Freedom to be just what I am
You have for me such perfect plans
Of things that suit me
And make me to be
Confident and free to express
Truly I would not settle for less
Than Jesus' very best.
You give me freedom to change
And to see a vision for change.
Things that hinder I’d not want to linger
So I can adapt to new things.
Sometimes new talents are waiting for me
Waiting for my discovery

Joy in Your Presence
I’m of good cheer when you’re near
To me it is so clear__
There’s Joy in Your Presence
You are the essence
of happiness and good cheer.
You come to me joyfully
And fill my heart with song
You bless me plenteously
In Your Presence I feel so free.

A Prayer of Thanks
Thank you, God, for the beauty
Around me everywhere,
The gentle rain and glistening dew,
The sunshine and the air,
The joyous gift of feeling the soul’ssoft,
That speaks to me from deep within
And makes my heart REJOICE.
