To Say Love

To say 'love', you donít need
To sing or spread roses along the way,
To say 'love', you only need to be there
When there is nothing you can say.

Saying 'love' can be done in a whisper,
In a touch, or a look in your eye.
In fact, love like this is the kind
Iíve seen last, even until you die.

So, donít worry when simple words fail you.
Donít lament for the song you canít sing.
Just remember, I'm here; still the same
Through the years, whatever the future brings.

Never Alone

Never alone, in the sunshine or shadow;
Never alone, in the Spring time or fall.
With Jesus, the wonderful all present Savior,
I'm never, no never, alone at all.

Where could I go to receive such sweet comfort?
Is there a depth that is deeper than He?
If I could fly to the highest of Heavens,
Would I find Jesus there, present with me?

"I will go with you to regions of glory.
E'en in the bowels of the earth, I will come.
There are no boundaries I cannot span,
To leave you never, no never, alone."

Come Unto Him

A day is coming, and you may be sure,
When things not eternal will cease to endure.
All will be new (pure, clean and blest),
Good separated from all of the rest.

Godís watching and waiting, only He knows the day.
Jesus is ready. But, God has the say.
I want to be listening, when I hear the sound.
Iíd like to be first, with my feet off the ground.

Oh, I hope you are watching, expecting the day!
For, He will come quickly. Thereíll be no delay!
The trumpet will sound. Heíll call out His own,
Take us to Glory and a beautiful home!

Already, the Savior well knows your name.
Already, Heís paid the full price for your gain!
Oh, come, brother, sister. So simple and clear
Is the way to be instantly safe and secure!
