Special Music Lyrics
Lord, I Need You by Ron Hamilton
Sometimes when life seems gentle and blessings flood my way, I turn my gaze away from You and soon forget to pray. But when the sky grows darker and courage turns to fear, My anxious voice cries upward with words You long to hear.
(chorus) Lord, I need You when the sea of life is calm. O Lord, I need You when the wind is blowing strong. Whether trials come or cease, keep me always on my knees. Lord, I need You. Lord, I need You.
Lord, help me to remember I’m weak but You are strong. I cannot sing apart from You, for Lord, You are my song. Although I’m prone to wander and boast in all I do; Lord, keep my eyes turned upward so I depend on You.
How Can I Fear by Ron Hamilton
When shadows fall and the night covers all, there are things that my eyes cannot see. I’ll never fear for the Savior is near; My Lord abides with me.
(chorus) How can I fear? Jesus is near. He ever watches over me. Worries all cease; He gives me peace. How can I fear with Jesus?
When I’m alone and I face the unknown, and I fear what the future may be, I can depend on the strength of my Friend. He walks along with me.
Jesus is King. He controls everything: He is with me each night and each day. I trust my soul to the Savior’s control; He drives all fear away.
When Jesus saw the crowds, he went up the mountain; and after he sat down, his disciples came to him. 2 Then he began to speak, and taught them, saying:
3 “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
4 “Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.
5 “Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.
6 “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
for they will be filled.
7 “Blessed are the merciful, for they will receive mercy.
8 “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.
9 “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.
10 “Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
11 “Blessed are you when people revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account.
12 Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
