Look to Him

We met Alan Gilbert, a young man who had been in a terrible car accident which left terrible consequences on body and mind. While he would put on a brave face, we knew it was a put-on. This song came to confront him with reality and to encourage him to repent and believe. He went away apparently as hardened as ever. The mystery of iniquity is something at which to marvel.

Look to Him

Look to Him

When the times are looking grim

Look to Him

Look to Jesus when the light is burning dim

Whenever trouble comes around

And from Heaven there’s no sound

Look to Him.

 

Look to Him

He’s the only One Who matters

Look to Him

Look to Jesus when the world beckons you, look to Him

He’s the only One that cares, look to Him

There is nothing He can’t do

Nothing He won’t do for you

Look to Him.

 

Look to Him

When things are going the way they should

Look to Him

Thanking Jesus for it all, look to Him

He’s the One who did it all, look to Him

He’ll be glad to get the praise

‘Cause you’re walking in His ways

Look to Him.

 

For Chorus, repeat in 3rd key

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.
The Flutterby (or) The Shadow of the Gallows Tree
Of all my writings, there are two that were written in 2 sittings, years apart. These were the first ones I ever wrote, and this one, interestingly enough, speaks of two births. While I had known the first, I had written of it but did not write of the second, which is the resurrection, until I had known it as well. It is therefore most befitting that the words of this writing came in two parts. The first part came only as a poem, words. It is all now a song though the music did come somewhere inbetween the two sittings.
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.
