My people have forsaken Me
They do not want My power
They’d rather live their fruitless lives
Inside their ivory towers
Jesus has been relegated
Just like long ago
Despite His sacrifice for man
They do not want to know.

But love like Mine does not recede
It plays a waiting game
And in their lives I will succeed
If they will take the blame
For thinking that they know it all
And that I cannot heal
The fragile lives they tremble in
My power I will reveal.





What’s the use of being frank

When your name is Ted

Driving through life like a tank

Not where you are led

Give again your tepid lives

Strictly to The Lord

Then you’ll know that you and Him

Are in one accord

For dodgy times are happening

Everywhere we look

And all the answers to our walk

Are found in God’s own book

So let us take this seriously

And spend some time with Him

Who has a purpose meant for us

Let not our light grow dim.




In Jesus name I’ve been set free
My chains have been removed
He’s been working twenty years
To get His child improved
Though there’s plenty more to do
I know he won’t stand still
He wants me back as I once was
My void He wants to fill.

All I do is let Him work
I’ve learnt that that is best
Refining me to suit my state
I never would have guessed
That he would love me oh so much
To choose a wreck like me
I open up my arms in praise
Surrender totally.



If you ever need a friend

One who’s with you to the end

Never ever lets you down

Even though He wears a crown

Loves to place you at the top

You’re the finest of His crop

Always there through thick and thin

Full forgiveness of your sin

He’s the one who you must choose

Play His way, you just can’t lose

Jesus is the One for all

Answer when He makes the call.




Friend of sinners, glorious One
You chose me as Your own
When I was far off from You
My fate was overthrown
Since that day, I’ve come to know
The presence of Your Son
Help me Lord to persevere
To win the race we’ve run.

There is so much You want of me
I’ve let You down, I know
But if I take You seriously
Our partnership will grow
It’s up to me to spare the time
To listen to Your voice
And patiently You wait for me
To make You my first choice.




Frustration in the car park
You cannot find a place
Your anger’s boiling up inside
Distorted is your face
Why don’t you ask The Lord to help
He’d love to aid your plight
Quickly, say an arrow prayer
And all will turn out right.

Problems in your family
You have financial need
From the least unto the most
Your prayers He will heed
Involve Him in your journey
Let every twist and turn
Be offered up to He who cares
Trust Him with your concern.
