I Then Shall Live

I then shall live as one who’s been forgiven.
I’ll walk with joy to know my debts are paid.
I know my name is clear before my Father;
I am His child and I am not afraid.
So, greatly pardoned, I’ll forgive my brother;
The law of love I gladly will obey.

I then shall live as one who’s learned compassion.
I‘ve been so loved that I’ll risk loving, too.
I know how fear builds walls instead of bridges;
I’ll dare to see another’s point of view.
And when relationships demand commitment,
Then I’ll be there to care and follow through.

Your Kingdom come around and through and in me;
Your power and glory, let them shine through me.
Your Hallowed Name, O may I bear with honor,
And may your living kingdom come in me.
The Bread of Life, O may I share with honor,
And may You feed a hungry world through me.

Amen, amen, amen.

What Child Is This

Give Them All to Jesus / Broken Toys

As children bring their broken toys
with tears for us to mend,
I brought my broken dreams to GOD
Because He was my Friend.

But then instead of leaving Him
in peace to work alone,
I hung around and tried to help
With ways that were my own.

At last I snatched them back and cried,
“How can You be so slow”?
“My child,” He said,
“What could I do?
You never did let go.”
