Jesus Hugs

Have you ever had a “Jesus hug”,
Do you know what one feels like?
If you’ve never had a “Jesus hug”,
I pray one day you might.

A “Jesus hug” is different,
As far as hugging goes;
It’s a little taste of Heaven,
Here on earth below.

Only those who love the Lord,
Can give a “Jesus Hug”;
It conveys God’s grace and mercy,
And unconditional love.

Those who give out “Jesus hugs”
Always seem to somehow know
Just when you’re in need of one
To make your spirit glow.

And if you ever need one
I hope that I will see,
So I can give you a “Jesus hug”;
Just like someone did for me.

She Looks Up To Me

She looks up to me, Lord,
So I look up to You;
This precious child is watching
All I say and do.
May all my words and deeds
To Your Holy Word be true;
May all she sees in me
Be a clear reflection of You.
She means the world to me,
And I know You love her too;
She looks up to me, Lord,
So I look up to You.

The Love of God

There are lessons I have learned
Along life’s weary way;
And there are many other things
He’s teaching me each day.

But something that still puzzles me,
Which I’ll never understand,
Is why the One who set the stars in place
Chose to come to earth as man.

And still a greater mystery
That I will never solve,
Is why He chose to die for us,
In agony, on a cross.

And why on earth did He choose me
To be included in His plan?
I’m so thankful for the love of God,
But I will never understand.

His Many Promises

For many reasons I can trust Him
And say He’s everything to me;
But by far the greatest reason
Is that His promises He keeps.
He keeps His promises, His many promises,
His many promises to me;
I take comfort in the knowledge
That His promises He keeps.
He’ll never leave me or forsake me,
He’ll stay close, as from the start;
And I can stand upon His promise
To dwell forever in my heart.
He keeps His promises, His many promises,
His many promises to me;
I have a blessed peace in knowing
That His promises He keeps.
