Lyrics

Power and Love

Written By: Lori Jo Gardner

When I turn my eyes to you
Ever seeking what to do
You are always there, in my dark despair
I can see your loving face
Everywhere I look I find
Answers that will help remind
Me of who you are, and how you reached so far
Showing me your endless grace
You spoke the words and the world came to be
Mountains and valleys, the sky and the sea
All of creation, the heavens above
Sing of your power and love, of your power and love
As I walk along my way
Struggling through everyday
I just think of you and how you'll see me through
From me you will ne'er depart
Nothing is too great or small
You will answer when I call
How can I deny, you will satisfy
Every longing of my heart
You wave your hand and the waters stand still
At your command nations fall to your will
You calm the winds, make the raindrops to fall
For you are the ruler of all
You spoke the words and the world came to be
Mountains and valleys, the sky and the sea
All of creation, the heavens above
Sing of your power and love
Of your power and love

Evening Prayer

Written By: Lori Jo Gardner

While I've got the time
I'd just like to say
Thank you for all that you gave me today
You were so kind, to keep me in mind
Even when I turned away.

You saw me through
Some tough things today
Times when I wondered,
Will I be okay
You never left, you stayed by my side
Catching each tear as I cried

I don't deserve
This love that you show
Why you choose to give it
I'll never know
What have I done, your favor to win
But you give it again and again

I don't understand at all
Why you catch me everytime that I fall
I'm not sure what your reason could be
I guess it's because you love me

So thank you Lord
For being there
Just when I needed
Your love and your care
I couldn't survive, all on my own
Thanks for the love you have shown

It Was Your Hand

Written By: Lori Jo Gardner

I was so lost, feeling all alone
Trying to live my life on my own
I felt the pain from the way that I chose
I thought that was how it should go

But it was your hand
It was your hand
It was your hand of mercy that saved me
It was your hand
It was your hand
It was your hand of grace that prevailed

My life was good
I had everything
Nothing to want
I could laugh and sing
But in one siingle moment of time
Suddenly I could have died

Long time ago
In a foreign land
For reasons that I just can't understand
You gave your life hanging on a tree
You did it to justify me

And it was your hands
It was your hands
It was your hands of mercy that saved me
It was your hands
It was your hands
It was your hands of grace that prevailed

Everywhere That I Go

Written By: Lori Jo Gardner

You will be the wind that carries me
You will be the road that leads me home
You will look beyond the stormy sea
You, you, you will find

Where can I go
That you are not already there
Where can I run to
You will find me anywhere
If I rise to the heavens,
If I make my bed down low
You are everywhere that I go

Where can I hide
Even in the darkest night
There you will find me
I'm not hidden from your sight
There is nothing can keep me
From the way you love me so
You are everywhere that I go

Autumn Rain

Written By: Lori Jo Gardner

Say goodbye
It's all gone
Nothing left
What went wrong

Here one day
Standing tall
Suddenly
Watch it fall

We just wonder why

Momma's sick
Daddy too
No one left
To run to

Empty shelves
Cupboards bare
We're left standing
In despair

We don't understand why

Oh, Lord, Hear our cry
Won't you send us the autumn rain
Please, Lord, Don't pass us by
How we need the autumn rain

Come and ease our pain
Shower your blessings again

Children come
Lift your eyes
Turn your gaze
To the skies

Sinners all
Fast and pray
Change your hearts
Don't run away

Jesus hears when we call

Oh, Lord, Hear our cry
Won't you send us the autumn rain
Please, Lord, Don't pass us by
How we need the autumn rain

Come and heal our pain
Shower you blessings again

What Child Is This

Written By: Lori Jo Gardner

What child is this?
What child is this?

How silently He came
How wondrously she gave
No one heard a sound
When this love came down

What child is this?
What child is this?

See within He lies
He, who built the skies
Come from higher bliss
To such a world as this

He is the wonderful counselor and King
This tiny baby to earth salvation brings

What child is this?
What child is this?

A child of Hope is born
Forevermore adored
Prince of Peace is He
The Lord God almighty

This, this is Christ the King
Whom shepherds guard
And angels sing
Haste, haste to bring Him laud
The babe, the Son of Mary
