You are the one true GodDaystar
Your glory fills the air.
Throughout our lives You guide our paths
And fill our hearts with Your care
So shall we sing Your praise

You’re the Messiah
The shining daystar
Your presence lights the morning
Lingers through ‘setting sun
Our praises we send up to Your throne
Our Daystar, precious Morning Star

Our souls delight in Your

There is a well flowing over with comfort
Springing forth from You
So shall we lift up Your name

You’re the Messiah
The shining daystar

Lingers through ‘setting sun
Our praises we send up to Your throne
Our Daystar, precious Morning Star

Daystar, brightness of the morning
Daystar, showing us the light

Keep the Faith

Fight the good fightCrossbox
Finish the race
And through it all
Keep the faith

With so many witnesses around us
Let us throw off all that hinders us
And with determination inside
Our eyes on Christ, the crucified
We’ll not grow weary or lose heart
As we run the race right from the start
We’ve got to

Fight the good fight
Finish the race
And through it all
Keep the faith

Forgetting all that’s behind me
Straining to reach what’s ahead
Straight to the goal, I’m runnin’ ahead
Jesus promised in what He said
God will fill those whose desires
Are to do just what He requires

I have fought the good fight
Finished the race
And through it all
I’ve kept the faith
Through it all
Through it all
Through it all
I’ve kept the faith.

Bridal Prayer

The moment is here, and I can hardly believeWedProgram
that you, my groom, and I, your bride,
very soon will be named “husband and wife.”
I’ve been eagerly waiting for this day to come,
when we embark on our journey together,
no longer as two, but now as one.

(Chorus)
And my bridal prayer shall be…
That our marriage will reflect
our Father’s perfect design
for the union of a woman and man.
that our hearts will nurture
our Savior’s passion divine
for a richer walk with His hands in ours.
May our Lord’s desires become our own
as we grow closer to Him and one another.

I’m wanting to be all that you’ve wanted in me,
as I grow in the grace of God.
Rev’rent and pure, loving, gentle and kind,
I’ll be submitted to you as you are to Christ.
I give fully to you my loving devotion,
and await the years of life we’ll share.

(Chorus)

This is my bridal prayer
for our marriage, for our hearts, for our love

(Chorus)
May our Lord’s desires become our own
as we grow closer to Him and one another.

God’s Child

Knowing I’m God’s child …
My Daddy is the Greatest One of ALL!
(especially since He created everything else).

My Daddy loves me unconditionally—
no matter how much I mess up.

My Daddy is holy—
that’s why Jesus had to die for my sins.
Jesus’ cross bridged the great divide between my Daddy and me,
so that now I am free to run to Him and sit on His lap,
so He can hold me near His heart.

My Daddy helps me remember… in Christ,
I am completely forgiven;
I am totally accepted;
I am chosen and precious;
I am deeply loved;
I am saved; and
I am absolutely complete in Christ.

Jesus Loves Me mural

©1995 Kat Kreations; Hebrews 8

Incredibly Much

For me, You have suffered, Jesus.
For me, You have died.
For me, You have risen.
For me, You have ascended.
For me, You have prepared a place.
For me, You have provided Your Spirit.
For me, You will return.
For me, You’ve done incredibly much.
May I live my life in gratitude and for Your glory.

Give Me a Window

The radio alarm sounds
And out of bed I rise
When the light come on
The mirror is before my eyes

Through the day I often gaze
At my reflection in the glassCopper
More concerned with me
Than with the others who pass

Lord, take away my mirror
Give me a window in its place
Show me the look of need
That haunts another’s face

Give me a window to see through
That’s on an unlatched door
Then when I see the hurt
I can help them more and more

Walking along beside me
Is one with silent pain
Living just next door
A man who lives in vain

Do I turn my selfish eyes
To others all around
Or will I turn my head
Ignoring the weeping sound

Lord, take away my mirror
Give me a window in its place
Show me the look of need
That haunts another’s face

Give me a window to see through
That’s on an unlatched door
Then when I see the hurt
I can help them more and more
