Title: *Christ Our Anchor*


Title: *Christ Our Anchor*
1.
Today our Father says
I hear your prayers 
Receive my breath
Arise from death. 
Breathe in my Grace
Look into my Smiling Face 
Breathe in my ministry
Breathe out my sovereignty.
It's so amazing to fathom 
How I breathed into Adam 
Who then became 
A living soul
Complete and perfectly whole
Endowed with authority 
To extend his community
Family and dominion 
Over several billion
He was given birth
To subdue the earth 
Extracting from it
A heavenly place to sit
And receive the blessings 
The many exciting lessons 
I created for him to live by.
In reaching for the sky
Notice how many are those
Which bloom of summer rose 
Born again life-giving spirits,
Sharpening all their merits, 
Recreated in Christ,

Invited but never enticed

2.
Ministered by angels
Taking it in turn to
Ring the church bells
This is who
You are beloved
Keep that truth
 In your head
Understand what
it constitutes
Accept no substitutes. 
Refuse all bad
 Images of man
I am your biggest fan
Refuse all those 
Images of failure 
Push them right 
Out the door.
Permit not those shadows
Of past deeds and things
An attempt to clip 
Your precious wings
You are not a failure
Nor are you a bore. 
You are not without hope
You have tremendous scope. 
No, your future
 Is not bleak. 
For, even as we speak
This very hour,
You are a
Principality and Power
Sanctioned by 
The shed blood
Of Calvary
To set man free 
To go out
And quench all doubt 
And to demonstrate 
With love not hate
Who I AM
In all the earth.

Title: *The Leap In The Dark



Matthew 21:21 

And Jesus answered and said to them,
 "Truly I say to you, if you have
faith and do not doubt, 
you will not only do what was done to the fig tree,
but even if you say to this mountain,
 'Be taken up and cast into the sea,' it
will happen.


Title: *The Leap In The Dark*

In the rills,
On the hills,
Up from the soul,
The music's deep roll.
From God's choir,
A chorus of fire,
Welcomes us in
No more in enslavement,
Ransomed from sin
Fields ever vernal
Trials vanish away
The kingdom of glory
Day after day
Sunshine the story
Weeping no more
Love before you
The emerald shore
From death's slumber
We are set free.
Where there is Heaven
Song there will be
Peace now a given
Jasper lit sea.
Luminous sunshine;
The glorified throng
Proclaiming evangel,
Of sanctified song;
Every bright rafter
Praise we can hear.
Sunlight to meet us;
Joy always there.

Title: *Awakened to the Truth*

Title:*AWAKEN* C1 /Visual Prayer Art by Rev.Bola


Title: *Awakened to the Truth*

1.
Spirits forevermore
At the door,
At His feet,
Hastening to meet;
May His call be heard,
His every Word.

2.
Angels join to pray
All night and day 
They sing;
Then shall they bring
Forth, by mighty hand,
The promised land.

3.
In love and joy
Old bonds, 
And chains destroy.
All faithful men will see
Their Savior set them free,
On those glorious of days,
The gentleness of His ways!

4.
The righteous approve,
With love, 
Their constant move.
Of peace and grace,
He grants dear souls 
More space,
From sin and wrong.
His love dwells strong,
And long.

5.
Much delight and pride,
So commonly denied.
Love's foe made fully aware,
Of the common snare.
It's from depths as these-
Our God doth please.
For such a day-break,
Oh Careless world, awake!

6.
The Lord hath spoken
His promises never broken.
All pain will pass away,
Without further delay.
Hence we must awaken, 
From this doom and gloom.
Our day has surely come;
A truth no time has shaken,
What divine steps 
Must be taken?

Oh, careless world awaken!

Title: *SWEET EMMANUEL*

Title: *EMMANUEL*C8  - from Set painted by Rev.Bola


Title: *SWEET EMMANUEL*

O Israel.
Rejoice! Emmanuel
Hail thee, 
With majestic awe.
You gave the Law,
On Sinai's height,
Lord of might,

O Israel.
Rejoice! Emmanuel
And close the misery.
Safely lead us on high,
Towards our 
Heavenly home
Of  David, come,

 O Israel.
Rejoice! Emmanuel
And put to flight
Clouds of night
Thine advent here
O come and cheer.

O Israel.
Rejoice! Emmanuel
Victory over the grave
Thy people you save
From Satan's tyranny
Sword of Jesse, 
Now free.

 O Israel.
Rejoice! Emmanuel
O God appear
To this lonely exile here
Ransom captive Israel
Come now our
Sweet Emmanuel,
Do come.

Title: *SWEET GRACE*

Title:*SALVATION* /Visual Prayer Art by Rev.Bola

Title: *SWEET GRACE*

Of his love
Of his grace
The saints above
See his face.

Reign with him
All glory bring
A wondrous theme
Let us sing.

For evermore
A spring of health
To the poor
A mine of wealth.

Victor of death
From the grave
Light and liberty
To the slave.

Removed our fears
And justice frowned
Reached our ears
The sweetest sound.
