ONLY YOU KNOW….by Carl Gooch

Only You Know

O Lord, only you know and I know,

Of all the wicked thinks I’ve done.

Yet I know on the cross long ago,

You paid the price for every one.

Only you know and I know,

The truth of why I love to sing.

Only you know and I know,

You’re the reason for everything.

There was a time I lost my way,

I wander around lost and alone.

I heard the words you had to say,

Calling to me to come home.

Only you know and I know,

The truth of why I love to sing.

Only you know and I know,

You’re the reason for everything.

Your love I’ve come to know,

And the mercy of your Son.

Let my life your blessings show,

Everything that you have done.

Only you know and I know,

The truth of why I love to sing.

Only you know and I know,

You’re the reason for everything.

TRUSTING IN HIS PROMISES…by Carl Gooch

Trusting in His Promises
The Lord God spoke;
“I hold your right hand.”
And I was covered with peace,
Knowing He was in command.
Mighty is your arm, my Lord,
Strong is your right hand.
Steadfast love and faithfulness,
Your righteous laws stand.
I remember yesterday,
How it was filled with care.
And you is with me today,
Giving me Your love to share.
I know what your word has to say,
Tomorrow you will be with me there.
Righteousness and justice
the foundation of your throne.
Your mercy and grace is my cloak,
Until in love you call me home.

NO MORE TO ROAM…by Carl Gooch

NO MORE TO ROAM

Lord, show me your way,

Let your word guide me today…

Reach down from above

And fill me with your precious love.

Give me a passion for you

And love fill everything I do…

Keep my heart open wide

So my love for you cannot hide!

Open my ears to your sweet call,

So in love I may reach out to all…

Reveal to me what I’m to do

And give me the strength to see it through.

Let my life be worship and my breath praise

For the loving Lord blessed all my days…

And when I am no more to roam,

I know that He will take me home!  🙂

THAT FINAL DAY, by Carl Gooch

That Final Day
Listen close all of you people;
Heed the words of the wise.
Hear it ring from, the steeple,
To comfort you and dry your eyes
Turn your ears to the proverbs,
They are revealed in the heart.
Spoken by the prophets suburb,
So truth from you will not depart.
Our eyes will see many wise men die;
And the fool and senseless also perish.
The rich man will lose his wealth and cry,
For it was the only thing he did cherish.
For none of us can redeem another,
Or buy them back from the grave.
The ransom is too high my brother,
No payment is ever enough to save.
I do not fear the days to come,
When the wicked surrounds me.
I do not trust in riches as some,
But in the One who died to save me.
I walk in His mercy led by His grace;
It is by His will I live for Him each day.
My greatest reward is to see His face;
As He calls me home on that final day.
