A vision from God for David to see
Temple worship of God by His people
Solomon built the Temple, God’s love bubbled over
Jerusalem was the place to be, God’s joy to see

An excitement that didn’t fade, joy in anticipation
Joy in the journey, joy in the activity
Go to God, so you can see
The Lord is at work in you and me

Things are not always what we see, the Lord sees our heart
In His presence there is joy, joy for us
We receive it and carry it and share it
Bowing our head in adoration, praise God our source of joy

Praise the Lord who sent His Son Jesus
Christ died and paid the price for my sin
I struggle still with sin in me, but Jesus has cleansed my heart
Joy is in me, Christ has forgiven me, and Jesus has a hold on me

Pray for our church, pray for our people, pray for His work
There are souls to be saved, people to be loved
The Lord is calling you and me, Come I have work to do
Jesus will not lose you, Jesus gives us peace

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, the world is aflame
The Lord is here with us, praise His name
His joy for you straight from His heart
The Lord is here with us, praise His name

Mankind seeks to find a way to live and do whatever he wants
Stuffing down the anxiety of the future
Overwhelmed by the failures of the past, claiming they will last
Tiptoeing by the graveyard, death is ever present, evil dogs our path
Crooning Hell’s motto, “I did it my way.”

Society soaked in drugs anesthetizing life’s pain
At the peak of success imploding
Do these idiots in the news really believe the stuff they say?
I need help, I need help to live, I need help
Jesus enters in; “Come follow me and I will walk life’s way with you”

My resources are so limited Lord, but YOU are unlimited
I have a hard time remembering an appointment, YOU forget nothing
Self-sufficiency and autonomy are a myth
A common cold can bring us to our knees
A little blood clot can kill us-forever- I need help

What I say, what I do, teach me Lord
Every time things turn on me, I raise my gaze to YOU
My help comes from Jesus, He is Lord of everything including me
All my troubles are in His hands and He will walk with me
Jesus offers me wisdom, mercy, grace and strength

The Lord never breaks a promise
He knows everything past, present and future and He knows all about me
Jesus loves me, not what I can do or what I have, Jesus loves me
His wondrous presence has to be toned down so that I can spend time with Him
I am so limited and foolish, Lord hear my plea, HELP me, I need help

Jesus will not permit my foot to slip
As I pray He prays with me providing that very thing I’m not asking for but need
The Lord leads me every day of my life in His glorious way
No sin, no attack, no evil can take me away from Jesus
Praise the Lord, His help is just what I need.
