A Canvas of Love

F

Your life

D

A canvas of love

F A

You painted this fallen world

D

With your blood

F

And now I

F A

See streaks of your grace

F

Though there once was no hope

D

In this place

 

F A

Your masterpiece

F D

Was strewn across the floor

A D

Shattered pieces of love

Lying undone

F D

Broken by the weight of our sins

 

A

And everything

F D

Was stripped of its color

Shades of black and grey

F

Concealed all the shadows

A

Of our weary souls

 

F

Your life

D

A canvas of love

F A

You painted this fallen world

D

With your blood

F

And now I

A

See streaks of your grace

F

Though there once was no hope

D

In this place

 

But one gloomy night

A

Hope came to life

F D

As the author of salvation

F D

Walked amidst creation

F A

To redeem our damaged hearts

 

With my faith

F A

My pain is the past

D

I am reborn

A

From the dark ashes

F D

I rise

 

Ceaseless Love

Your love
A raging river flows through my soul
Sweeping my feet from beneath me
Until I’m drowning

Your love
A tiny fire kindled within
Becomes a mighty wildfire
That I can’t contain

Your love
Is as steadfast as a mountain
A firm rock which cannot be moved
Steadying my feet

And oh
Pour the Holy Spirit over me
Untameable as the blue ocean
Chase my heart with a wildfire
Burning brightly for all to see
And as the moon is a reflection
So too will I be
For you

The Prodigal

Another song…

It’s the same old story
I was lost and I went astray
It’s for your glory
Peace will come my way
Peace will come my way

For miles and miles I walked that road
With my burdens upon my back
I was alone and lacking a home
On a mission for satisfaction

My feet grew tired and weary
My soul was bruised and torn
I cried out into the darkness
With not a single hope of a reply

It’s the same old story
I was lost and I went astray
It’s for your glory
Peace will come my way
Peace will come my way

But you, you chased away my pride
Which was bent on my destruction
You opened up the skies, so I can see you
And I am yours
I am yours
I am yours

And I, I found a place to call my own
A kingdom I call home
I am not alone
For you are here with every step
And I have found my home
My redeemer’s in my heart
And I am his alone

It’s the same old story
I was lost and I went astray
It’s for your glory
Peace will come my way
Peace will come my way

Everlasting Love

I am not a singer… at all. Although, I greatly appreciate worship. However, I have taken a liking to writing songs (even songs I can’t sing), and I wanted to share this one because I feel it truly expresses God’s love. You can also find numerous fragments of scripture in it.

My love, my love is everlasting
Though the winds pull and tug your heart
My love is as steadfast as a mighty mountain
Not even the roaring waves can break it

So child, do not be dismayed
For my perfect love will cast out your fear
Just stop, listen and you’ll hear
My voice respond with thunder

You are not alone
My love is with you always
Your heart is in my home
Locked away like a treasure and I
Won’t forget
No I won’t forget
My love

My love, my love is everlasting
Though the winds pull and tug your heart
My love is as steadfast as a mighty mountain
Not even the roaring waves can break it

Through the hurricanes of life my love endures
Take my hand to step onto the waters
For the waves will cease
At the sound of my name

And my faithfulness
Continues through the generations
Where my promise still stands
And my love will remain
As undeniable as the rainbow and I
Won’t forget
No I won’t forget my love

My love, my love is everlasting
Though the winds pull and tug your heart
My love is as steadfast as a mighty mountain
Not even the roaring waves can break it
No I won’t
I won’t forget
My love
My love

I have struggled immensely with condemnation, but God has patiently been revealing the truth behind his love for me… through music. So this song is near and dear to my heart, and I hope it speaks to you, as it did me!
