Praise the Lord, All Ye Saints

Praise the Lord, all ye saints
His Goodness ever sing
Glory to God in word and deed
Give honor to our King

Share his blessings every one
Shout acclamations too
Worthy is the Saviour
For what He’s done for you

The God of all creation
Came down in form of man
To open Heavens pearly gates
With His own loving hands

There’s none other like our God
The victory is won
We serve the God who’s living
The Bless-ed Three in One!

Shout from the highest mountains
What the Lamb of God has done
For all who seek will surely find
The wonderful Father’s Son!

Perfect Love

Adrift upon life’s stormy billows,
True despair sets in as darkness falls.
The tempest raging, days turn to night.
Can peace be found amidst it all?

My heart is discouraged, my eyes dim.
It is exhausting to seek the cure.
But I know that His Word is my salve.
It is healing and peace, He assures.

A glimmer of hope, Oh soul rejoice!
The Shepherd’s hand wipes away my tears.
Each drop replaced with His light and peace,
His perfect Love casteth out all fears!

Oh Watcher of My Soul

My Shepherd cares for my every need
In my life and along the way
He gives me peace with every trial
Reviving my heart each day

His dear rod and staff are a comfort
As I struggle through that dark vale
They guide me to that River of Life
Refreshing my soul as I sail

He guards my path from the enemy
Each moment, each heartbeat, each breath
His love for me has no boundaries
Far reaching from the cross, to His death

Watcher of my soul You are my King
Diligent, not sleeping, and so kind
I will glorify Your name dear Lord
As I await Your Kingdom divine

Ode to 1 Peter

(1 Peter 2:21-25) For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps: (21) Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth: (22) Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously: (23) Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed. (24) For ye were as sheep going astray; but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls. (25)

The God I serve is not made of stone
Nor crafted by human hands
The Saviour left His heavenly throne
And took on the form of man

His suffering was an example
His steps I diligently seek
He knew no sin, no deceit or guile
But bore my sins on the tree

His work on the cross brought death to sin
So I can live righteously
The Shepherd and Bishop of my soul
Purchased me for eternity

My Saviour’s Price

My heart is drawn before the tree
Where You hung to pay the price
Without a word you took my place
What remarkable love would sacrifice

My heart breaks so when I meditate
On the suffering that You went through
I can scarcely believe Your willingness
For a worm such as I yet You knew

You knew what was waiting when You came
The path You had to take was clear
Yet You came despite the suffering
To draw me to Your heart so dear

Why would You do this, I don’t understand
A love so deep and compassion great
There’s nothing I’ve done to earn this love
You came knowing the pain of your fate

It is finished, You said with your dying breath
I no longer must pay this great price
You paid it in full, oh Saviour Divine
Your Precious atoning blood would suffice

Oh Blessed Redeemer, as you sit beside
Your Holy Father on Your Heavenly Throne
I long for the day I can look in Your face
The One my heart all these years has known

Oh glorious day when the pain is all gone
And the trials of this earth are no more
I hope to face my Shepherd with no regrets
And say, My Redeemer, My Saviour, My Lord!

Thank You precious Jesus, Oh Wonderful One
My heart can scarcely contain the joy
I’m so grateful for what You’ve done for me
This foundation of sin You destroyed

Saviour, daily I will give You my heart
And I pray that I will focus on You
Taking the Word to those who are lost
Leading them to salvation so true

My Saviour, Complete

There is none other like my God
His love for me complete
I found my way one glorious day
At His most precious feet.

The feet who trod the land He made
Were pierced because of me
My sins did take Him to His death
That day upon the tree.

He bled and died so I might be
Saved to the uttermost
Not anything that I could do
Or tried to even boast.

The ones from times of long ago
Diligently did try
To follow and obey Him
They called Him El Shaddai

However hard they tried to keep
The laws commanded them
They relied upon their flesh
God said they were condemned

It is by grace that we are saved
A gift free from above
Jesus paid our penalty
Of death because of love

There is none other like the Lamb
Who sits on Heaven’s Seat
Lord of Lords, Eternal One,
The King of Kings Supreme.

My King James Bible

Just reading Your Word is a privilege

I never dreamed would be

So much a part of my daily life

And impossible to shake free.

It’s become a vital food for me

To feed my hungry soul

It quenches the thirst I have for truth

And lets mysteries unfold!

It ministers to every single need

No one does He overlook

Our questions have all been answered

In this Solitary Book!

My King James Bible, a miracle indeed

The way it all seems to flow

The same Spirit authored each single word

So we would all be able to grow!

So if you want wisdom then read God’s Book

And He’ll never let you down

Be persistent in your search for truth

And your foundation will be sound!

Kate Plourde




My Heart Panteth for You!

My heart is full as I sit with You,
During this time of solitude.
A time ever precious and so sweet
Each day my heart’s made new!

Despite the problems of the day
I’m not feeling overwhelmed.
The loving Captain of my ship
Stands watchful at the helm.
The Master of the sea loves me!
My best is His loving plan.
He guides me through the storms of life.
I find rest in His bless’ed Hand.

Dear Lord, be the Commander of my life,
For You care so diligently.
The Word has promised You’ll never sleep,
While you guide me on life’s sea!

My Heart is Full

There is no other who can fill my heart
The way You can, dear Lord.
There is nothing else that can satisfy
Like a drink from Your precious Word.

Each page has just what I need to read
To guide and to light my way.
When my heart is heavy or overwhelmed
Your words are fresh like winter air.

There is none other like you my Lord
You know exactly what I need
On each page Your Spirit whispers truth
And the waters of doubt recede

You raise me up when I am down
My spirit you cause to soar
As I look unto the hills for You
I find Your love and so much more!

Jesus Christ, my Lord and Saviour is.
So deserving to be adored.
The Alpha, Omega, first and last,
And King of Kings forever more!
