What will you do?

Oh what will you do when our Lord returns
if you've turned a deaf ear to His word

oh what can you say to the Son of God
can you say friend that you've never heard?

Can you say you've not known that we've all gone astray
in our sins it's as if we were dead
that the curse brought on Adam for turning away
we've inherited just as God said?

Even now God still loves us saying 'Turn and repent'
from all things that you know are sin
For the time now is short and the door soon will close
on this world........... so make sure that you're in

'For as in Adam all die, so in Christ shall all be made alive'

Love lies bleeding

He is the image of the invisible God, the first born of all creation, for in Him all things were created, in Heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities, or authorities - all things were created through Him and for Him.  He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together.  He is the head of the body, the church, He is the beginning, the first born from the dead, that in everything He might be pre-eminent.  For in Him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, and through Him to reconcile to Himself all things, whether on earth or in Heaven, making peace by the blood of His cross.                                                                                         
Colossions ch.1 vs. 15 - 20


Love lies bleeding

Love lies bleeding on a hill
alone and far away
for the blood of Christ shed on that cross
is still poured out today
To God there is no passing time
only a way to be
This the reason Jesus came
to save both you and me
And if you say 'We're not in chains
why need we be set free?'
just look around this present world
and tell me what you see
Do you see greed enticing man
to murder, rob and cheat
while anger, lust and envy
are roaming every street?
And where a soul lies crying
alone and in despair
do you turn away while saying
'Doesn't anybody care?'
Strong chains of sin and selfishness
are now binding all mankind
and only God's great sacrifice
can bring you peace of mind
Yes love lies bleeding on a hill
yet not so far away
for the love of Jesus .......flowing still
is just a prayer away

No longer a veil between God and you
the curtain of old has been torn in two
no more need you suffer with pain and strife
because of the sins that control your life
For Jesus was crucified in our place
and instead of the curse we now have God's grace
So step through the veil, leave the sins of the flesh
be born of God's Spirit and start afresh

But now the righteousness of God has been manifested apart from the law, although the law and the prophets bear witness to it, the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe.  For there is no distinction, since all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, they are justified by His grace as a gift, through redemption which is in Christ Jesus, whom God put forward as an expiation by His blood, to be received by faith.  This was to show God's righteousness, because in His divine forbearance He had passed over former sins, it was to prove at the present time that He Himself is righteous and that He justifies him who has faith in Jesus.

Romans ch.3 vs. 21 - 26
