As a burning candle 

Is consumed by flame 

So is Man’s soul 

If rejecting Jesus’ name 


Life is so short 

When looking back to see 

That young person there 

Was really me 


On our way to glory 

Or the other place? 

One brings us happiness 

The other, suffering and disgrace 


The gnashing of teeth 

While burning in pain 

Awaits all people 

Covered in sin stain 


The gift of God 

Is eternal life 

Away from all heartache 

And bitter strife 




The Lord kept this man 

For his testimony I’m sure 

Proving that through God 

He’s able to endure 


Stopping by to see me 

Each and every day 

Singing praise to the Lord 

All along his way 


He is touching many lives 

While in such terrible pain 

His sickness is spreading 

Finally going to his brain 


Never giving an inch 

Just trusting in the Lord 

Saying, the Lord will heal me 

This body He’ll restore 


The man walks by faith 

And not by his sight 

What an example for others 

While walking in God’s light 




May the Lord humble your heart 

For all people in need 

Help the lost to find Christ 

For them we must intercede 


Shed some tears for someone 

And spend the day in prayer 

Hell burns hot with sufferings 

And it’s torments forever there 


Stand in the gap for them 

Fast and pray today 

Be a witness for Jesus 

Let nothing stand in your way 


Have you sat so long in piety 

Numbness affects your thought 

Who leads you to know 

By Christ’s blood you were bought 


Be a soul winner for Jesus 

Help save a life from hell 

In Jesus there is victory 

In us His Spirit dwells 




One man’s loss 

Is another man’s gain 

That’s the way it works 

In this world of pain 


It’s mine all mine 

Everything belongs to him 

People want only riches 

As far as the eye can see 


Only thinking of themselves 

Their minds full of greed 

Doing wicked things 

To satisfy their need 


Never knowing the Lord 

Or helping out a neighbor 

Just only reaping sorrow 

For the fruits of their labor 


Turn away my friends 

From this world of sin 

Give your life to Jesus 

And paradise you’ll enter in 




Once there was a lad 

Who made a special toy 

He loved it very much 

Giving him many hours of joy 


One day while he was playing 

He set the little boat down 

When he finally came back 

It was no where to be found 


Later, passing a store window 

And seeing what he had lost 

He wanted the toy back 

Regardless of the cost 


Now you’re mine again 

The lad was proud to say 

I’ll never leave you anymore 

And from me don’t sail away 


People are like the boat 

Sailing away from the Lord 

The Creator bought us back 

And wants our lives to be restored 




The brilliance of God’s glory 

Is there for all to see 

The radiance of Lord Jesus 

Reflects upon you and me 


Brighter than any star 

In the darkest night 

The people of the Lord 

Shine forth with His light 


We are His body 

With legs, arms and hands 

Always wanting to help others 

Just as the Lord commands 


Loving God with all our hearts 

And our neighbors too 

Jesus is living in us 

And there’s nothing we can’t do 


The salt of the earth 

With distinctive taste and savor 

Are people doing God’s will 

And never losing their flavor 




A wise man knows better 

Than to seek changes he cannot control 

But a foolish man runs blindly 

To offer the world his eternal soul 

God made man is His image 


And gave him freedom of his will 

Man worships creation and not the creator 

And he is worse for it still 

The Father gave us His Son 


Accepting Him takes away our sin 

This does not mean we sin no more 

We try not to, because He abides within 

If you look at how the wicked prosper 


Things in this world are easy for them to do 

They will gain the world, but miss the savior 

God’s word on this is very true 

God’s word never returns to Him void 


It is always accepted by at least one 

But there are many that reject it 

And it’s been that way since man begun 




Am I my brother’s keeper, Lord? 

You told me I should be 

Why do I hurt my Brother 

Then run and pray to thee 


Do I hold his sin up 

So all can see it, under his face 

Or do I tell him about mine 

Together praying in a silent place 


The wicked can’t wait to see 

The good fall by the way 

Christians are under watchful eyes 

We must renew faith everyday 


I stand upon the word of God 

And know it to be true 

When you point your fingers at someone 

There’s three pointing back at you 


Jesus said, “Love God” 

And your neighbor as yourself 

Don’t be so quick to judge 

Put condemnation on a shelf 




I’m working for the Lord 

In everything that I do 

Giving my all for Him 

And likewise so should you 


Jesus is my Boss 

At church or working place 

People wonder what’s happening 

Always a smile upon my face 


With this way of thinking 

And trying to do no wrong 

Just doing our very best 

Because to Him we all belong 


Do not be caught sleeping 

Thinking the Boss will delay 

Because He will come quickly 

On that very day 


Blessed are the servants 

The Lord they have sought 

For the Son of Man will come 

At an hour you think not 




The Reverend led the prayers 

On that joyful day 

Even when it was over 

Everybody just wanted to stay 


The church received a blessing 

And the building containing it too 

Many things were done that day 

Before the service was through 


Straight from God’s word 

Rang out the truth 

Intense ears were listening 

From the aged to the youth 


The preaching and praising 

To God’s Holy Son 

Just got better and better 

And it was really fun 


The countenance of God’s people 

Seemed to take on a glow 

Everyone was so very happy 

The Lord was there I know 




Sitting on the porch 

On a warm summer day 

I heard a terrible scream 

From not every far away 


Like a shot from a cannon 

To the pool straight and true 

I pulled a little boy out 

He was lifeless and blue 


I prayed to almighty God 

Which I had never done 

Then promised, if He saved him 

I’d give anything under the sun 


Suddenly, the boy turned pink 

And his life was back again 

His parents thanking God for me 

It seemed very strange back then 


Thinking back to those days 

Is a happy memory 

I saved that little boy 

And Almighty God saved me
