Promise

The promised heirs are the heirs of promise. They dwell in the land of the covenant new.
Where Jesus lives in the hearts of His people, and His Word in their hearts holds true.
The vintage Wine overflows from their cups, and the good Bread is broken everyday.
Jesus eats and sups with them as they follow Him on the Way.
The promised heirs are the heirs of promise be they Gentile or pure blooded Jew —
and by faith, dear friend, through Jesus Christ, partake of the blessings, too.

Whatever I Need…

This song was taught to me by my Aunt Levi when I was even too young to understand what it means.  I was reminded of this song, again, and it’s amazing that I didn’t try hard to recall the lyrics — they were sort of imprinted in my mind like a page in time, waiting for me to check it out and sing, again.  I don’t know who composed this, who sang this and I don’t know if I recalled right, but as long as you get God’s message in this song, may it bless you as it has blessed me.

 That’s Just What He Is

Sometimes I try to tell what Jesus means to me

And I find myself searching for words to say what I mean

Well I never can quite describe how good it means to me

For I know whatever I need that’s just what He is

He is my Rock and my Deliverer

He is my Strength, my God and my King

He is my Shelter in times of trouble

Yes I look to Him for everything

He’ll be a Mother, a Father, a Friend

And on Him I can always depend

For I know whatever I need that’s just what He is

Well I’m poor and needy yet the Lord thinks about me

In troubled times, well, He’s a tower and refuge you see

This world has nothing to offer me, I cling to Him

For I know whatever I need, that’s just what He is
