What A Surprise

Written By: Cathy M. Bridges

What a Surprise

Who could have seen how our paths would cross?
Who could have known where our destiny lay?
God has ordained this holy union,
And God has guided each step on the way.

What a surprise, what a joy, having you in my life.
What a privilege, what an honor to share my world with you.
What a surprise, what a joy, having you in my life.
God blessed me with the miracle of you.

Here, on this day, I pledge my love to you,
And to be faithful in good times or bad.
You are my joy, my companion,
And you're the best friend that I've ever had.

What a surprise, what a joy, having you in my life.
What a privilege, what an honor to share my world with you.
What a surprise, what a joy, having you in my life.
God blessed me with the miracle of you.

Standing here right now, each declaring vows,
The Lord will show us how to be true.
And in this holy light, Spirit we invite
Your power to unite us as one, as one.

What a surprise, what a joy, having you in my life.
What a privilege, what an honor to share my world with you.
What a surprise, what a joy, having you in my life.
God blessed me with the miracle.
I'm thankful for the miracle.
God blessed me with the miracle of you.

It's All Good

Written By: Cathy M. Bridges

You said you would be there any time;
Any place I go, I find you're watching over me.
You said when I call you, you will hear,
So I never have to fear - you are my guarantee.

I fly so high on your wings of love.
Resting in you, I can rise above.

And it’s all good, walking with you, Lord. It’s all good.
It’s all good, walking with you, Lord. It’s all good.
Even when the storms of life try to wash my world away,
I trust you when you say I’ll see another sunny day.
And it’s all good, walking with you, Lord. It’s all good.

I know all your promises are true.
You will always bring me through the seasons of the night.
I know you can pull me through my pain.
Through the fire and through the rain, you’ll always be my light.

I am secure when I’m by your side.
I can relax and enjoy the ride.

Lean on You

Written By: Cathy M. Bridges

I don’t know what to do with myself; I’m not sure what I feel
It’s hard to peel away all the lies and find what’s real
Lord, it’s so easy to say all the words and know the right things to do
But is that the person you see when I’m alone with you?

Lord let me be in my life the person I see in my heart
May my will and yours be together and not apart

Lord, I struggle with so many things, so many thoughts that deceive
Help me find the truth in your word, and help me to believe
Give me the wisdom to know what is good, give me your righteousness too
Lord you know I can’t stand on my own, so help me lean on you

Hold me in your arms right now, and take the resistance away
How I want to rest in your love - hold me today.

Lord, change me from the inside out
Remake me from the inside out

You Hold My Heart

Written By: Cathy M. Bridges

You hold my heart in your sweet caress
You cover me with your tenderness
And your passion burns, and melts all my sadness
And your mother's love mends my brokenness

You hold my heart in your warm embrace
You take my hand and you kiss my face
And your sweet perfume bathes me in your grace
In your sea of mercy, I know I've found my place

I'm finally home
I'm finally home
I'm finally home in you
