Cause Me to Hear

A tune the Lord gave me for Psalm 143:8-19.

Life's a Road

Cause me to hear Thy lovingkindness in the morning;

For in Thee do I trust:

Cause me to know the way wherein I should walk;

For I lift up my soul unto Thee.

 

Deliver me, O LORD, from my enemies:

I flee unto Thee to hide me.

Teach me to do thy will, O LORD;

For Thou art my God.

 

Cause me to hear Thy lovingkindness in the morning;

For in Thee do I trust:

Cause me to know the way wherein I should walk;

For I lift up my soul unto Thee.

 

Deliver me, O LORD, from my enemies:

I flee unto Thee to hide me.

Teach me to do thy will, O LORD;

For Thou art my God.

 

Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, 1976

Walk by Faith
This is the first song I ever wrote as a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ...nothing default by any stretch but it amazes me how that we knew so much of what was required of us while yet babes in Christ. Twenty-one years later, I feel we have only been learning what we've known all along, that faith is the key and substance of our walk with God, that we must come away from all carnal thought and participation in order to walk with God by faith and be pleasing to Him.
The Power of Jesus
While I called this song the above name 20 years ago, I would not do so now. The power of Jesus as the Pentecostal circles like to call it is nothing less than Christ in us, the hope of glory. His Spirit we receive not while seeking power but while seeking to do His will in reality and not as we perceive it.
I'd Give Anything
"The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak." At the time I wrote this, I sincerely thought and desired that I would give anything and everything. I haven't changed on that except that the Lord has given me more since then and the more I have, the less possible it seems that I can give all. I now have a son and am much more appreciative of what it cost God to give His Son. We have these sincere thoughts as did Peter on the last night but to perform is terribly difficult and even impossible, I say. Only by the grace of God can we give Him everything and it is not without pain if we have that which is valuable to us to give. But being a jealous God, we must surrender all to Him and He is faithful, patiently and mercifully enabling us to do His will.
