Visitor From Another World





Listen to:  Visitor From Another World

Earth rise as seen from the moon


The possibility of intelligent life forms existing in outer space has long gripped the imagination of science fiction writers and film makers. ‘Star Wars’, ‘E.T.’ and similar movies have made millions at the box office.  N.A.S.A. is doing research in the hope of identifying space messages from intelligent beings.

Space probes have shown that our near planetary neighbours are barren wastes incapable of supporting life, and that planet earth stands alone with its atmosphere and multitude of life forms.




One visitor has come from another world in a most unique way.  It is recorded in history as well as in the Bible that Jesus Christ, Immanuel [meaning ‘God with us], has visited this earth.  He said I know where I came from and where I am going.’ ‘You are from beneath; I am from above. You are of this world; I am not of this world’ [John 8:14, 23].





The Bible tells us that the power of the Most High overshadowed a virgin Jewish girl called Mary, and when the Holy Spirit came upon her, she conceived a child called the Son of God [Luke 1:26-35].  The Babe born in Bethlehem was a visitor from Heaven, forGod was manifested in the flesh’ [1 Timothy 3:16].


Jesus Christ is remarkable in that He is Omnipotent, meaning He is able to do all things. He raised the dead, cured the sick and calmed a stormy sea. He could perform any miracle He chose and on many occasions showed His complete mastery over all creation.

He is also Omniscient, meaning He knows everything.  He knew the thoughts of His opponents, as well as those of His disciples.  He saw Nathanael under the fig tree and knew his thoughts while far away [John 1: 48].

He is also Omnipresent, meaning He is present everywhere.  While on earth, He was still in Heaven!No one has ascended to Heaven but He who came down from heaven, that is, the Son of man who is in Heaven’ [John 3:13].  These are all attributes of God alone!


He was also different to everyone else, for –

  He was sinless in word and deed. Who committed no sin, nor was guile found in His mouth’ [1 Peter 2:22].

  He was sinless in every thought.For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him’ [2 Corinthians 5:21].

  He was sinless in His very being of nature.And you know that He was manifested to take away our sins, and in Him there is no sin’ [1 John 3:5].



The Mighty Creator has visited His creation, for All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made [John 1:1-3].  

      The Mighty Sustainer of all the universes, who is the cohesive  power of the atom, upholding All things by the Word of His power’  has stepped from Eternity into Time [Hebrews 1:3].



He was so radical that He was crucified for claiming to be God [Matthew 26;57-68].  Yet in death he fulfilled the great purpose for His visit to earth – He died for the sins of the whole world.


No mere mortal could take His life from Him.  He laid down His life and also had power to take it again, for He arose from the tomb on the morning of the third day.  He was seen alive by over 500 witnesses on one occasion, and His disciples saw Him ascend to Heaven.






One day He will return to earth and be revealed as King of kings and Lord of lords.’ Because of His finished work for you on the Cross, He wants to be –

  Your REDEEMER. He purchased you with His own life’s blood.  Knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold, from your aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without spot or blemish [1 Peter 1:18-19].

  Your SAVIOUR. The Father has sent the Son as Saviour of the world’ and ‘We trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, especially of those who believe [1 John 4:14, 1 Timothy 4:10].

  Your LORD. He has the right to be given total control your life. He wants you to surrender your will, and to receive Him now as your Saviour and Lord. Only then will you have your sins forgiven, and know His peace, purpose and plan for your life.Lord, what do you want me to do? [Acts 9:6]




Will you kneel before your Creator and Redeemer now, and receive Him as your Saviour and Lord? This suggested prayer would help you to do this – Thank you Lord Jesus for coming from Heaven to die for my sins. I confess that I have fallen far short of your holy standard, and ask You to forgive me my sins, and I now receive You as my Saviour and Lord.  Amen

Excuse Me!


You and I Met today not altogether by chance. I may not have had the opportunity to speak with you personally to become better acquainted but will you permit me to share with you the most wonderful thing that ever happened to me.


Some time ago I met and became personally acquainted with the most remarkable person, so great, so good and so outstanding that it has become a joy, mission and passion for me introduce Him to others. The great tragedy is that so many know about Him, but so few know Him personally. You have probably already guessed that I am speaking about Jesus Christ.


To some He is little more than a work of curse and blasphemy. To others He is a source of embarrassment. But to those who know Him, He is just simply, wonderful.

A man named Paul severely persecuted the first Christians but after he met Jesus personally, Paul’s life was totally changed and transformed. Paul said,
“This is faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief.” 1 Timothy 1:15


It is offensive to us and hurts our pride to admit our failure and need to honour, respect and worship the One true God. But our lawless living and way of “doing it all our own way” is deeply offensive to God. We have, everyone of us, broken God’s holy commands and sinned so often against God and our neighbor. But how truly wonderful it is to experience God’s mercy and power in Jesus Christ to forgive our sins and to heal us with the gift of a new life, a new heart and a new destiny.



God is perfect in justice and holiness and must judge all sin and sinners, but has in mercy and in His great love prepared a world-wide amnesty for all. Everyone has been promised equal and perfect non-preferential justice before God, for all mankind and their works will be judged by the timeless and perfect moral law of God. We shall all give an account of ourselves to God.


Reader, whatever your disappointment with people, your disillusionment with life and your confusion about religion, let me assure you that it is not the fault of Jesus Christ. He has been misrepresented, betrayed, hated, denied and cursed by man but He remains majestically the Lord, Saviour and Redeemer of the world, and
He now in love appeals to all of earth’s billions and to you, to
“Come unto Me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28


This incomparable “rest” is God’s salvation from the guilt of all committed lawlessnesses and sin against God. A present freedom and salvation from the power of Satan in this life is yours if you believe in and trust Christ. The glorious future of a certain home in heaven is promised to all who repent and believe before God’s true and pure, judgment is executed.



Will you believe Him?
Of course this shall mean the need of a total change of mind toward God and sorrow expressed to God for those offenses committed against Him. You will need to seek God’s forgiveness.


Will you seek Him?
This will also include an acknowledgement that God is true in all that He has said and done in the death of His Son Jesus Christ. “Christ died for the ungodly.” “For He hath made Him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him.” 2 Corinthians 5:21


Friend, seek God’s forgiveness for your sins today and experience the wonder of the cleansing power of Jesus Christ. “The blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanseth us from all sin.” 1John 1:7


Call upon the Name of the Lord today, tomorrow may well be too late!

Virgin Mary

Virgin Mary

A young virgin was surprised by an angel of the Lord,
Bringing an important message, from almighty God,
Who said, “you will soon be pregnant, and will bear a son,
Amazed she replied, “but of men I know not one”,

A mighty son of David he will surely be,
To lead God’s people to a final victory,
All the mysterious prophesies of old,
Will before you now amazingly unfold,

Her heart thus strengthened with faith and hope and love
From our dear Saviour high in heaven above,
She worshiped in peace and sweet accord,

My soul now magnifies the Lord,
But you must go your cousin Elizabeth to meet,
Even in old age, soon a baby she will greet,

When Mary then arrived in Elizabeth’s room,
The babe who was doubtless to be born very soon,
Leap for happiness and joy deep within her womb,

Elizabeth it seems already knew the story,
That Mary would bear the Christ of eternal glory,
As soon as you arrived, the babe leap within my womb, said she,

What an honor that the mother of my Lord should visit me,
So the day soon arrived for John the Baptists birth,
And no greater prophet has ever walked the earth,




Joseph though had no idea of God’s wondrous plan,Mary 3
And thinking Mary had slept with some other man,
As most righteous men would think of course,
Felt it was the best to sue for a divorce,

So the angel to him also came, to reveal Jehovah’s wondrous plan,
That the Almighty Creator would now become a man,
The seed within Mary, was from the Holy Spirit,
So both God’s and man’s nature Christ would thus inherit

So he humbly obeyed, and took her as his wife,
Soon to bear witness to this brand new life,
Caesar however had decreed that a census must be done,

So they traveled from Nazareth to Bethlehem town,
But there was no room for them in the inn that day
So they found refuge in a stable down the way,
And the King of Glory was laid in a manger filled with hay,


The angels were kept busy once again that night,
Appearing to some shepherds, who received quite a fright,
They were then also told the amazing truth,
Of the birth of the Messiah, Son of David, Of Boaz and Ruth,

They hasted to the stable, and found the stable bare,
Kneeling in adoration, before God’s Son and chosen heir,
Soon after return to Nazareth, wise men from the east,
Came searching for the one Isaiah calls the Prince of Peace,

They visited king Herod, expecting him in a palace to be born,
But the cruel king wanted nothing but to make his parents mourned,
He wanted not the slightest competition, it would surely seem,
So sought to end God’s purpose, and mankind’s long- time dream,

Bethlehem, says Micah, “Though you’re but a little town,
Out of you will come a Saviour who will wear the promised crown”,
Jeremiah then picks up the story, of Rachel weeping and sad,
As so many infants lay by wicked Herod dead,




 Mary 2(V)
Gladly an angel had been busy once again,
And they were safe in Egypt to avoid that pain,
Once they took the babe to the temple to present him to the Lord,

And God’s aged servant Simeon warned, “your heart will be pierced by a sword,”
He prophetically looked forward, to that day before the cross,
When Mary shared something of Christs agony and loss

Cruel nails in hands and feet, thorns that made his only crown,
His back so mutilated and torn that the blood just trickled down,
So although the rugged cross was not a real surprise,
Tears undoubtedly would have filled dear Mary’s eyes,


An even greater pain however was when the Father turned away his face,
As he bore the awful burden of human sin, of man’s disgrace,
The sun was blotted out that day to hide the agony
Of Jesus final hours as he hung upon the tree,

There were two Mary’s who sought the body on resurrection day,
When the soldiers were terrified as the angel rolled the stone away,
Strangely to me it doesn’t seem clear if she was one,
But what a glorious and touching moment, when she met her risen son,

On judgment day I wonder will she receive a special reward, For her
humble part in bearing the Messiah, Son of man and Son of God,
One thing though is most certain, her joy will be complete,
With redeemed from every land, worshipping at her son, her Saviour’s feet …..

This is A True Story



On Sunday afternoons, the Pastor and his eleven-year old son went out to hand out Gospel tracts. This particular Sunday, it was very cold outside and pouring down rain.
The young lad bundled up in his warmest clothes said, “Father, I’m ready.” To which his father replied, “Ready for what?”
“Dad, you know it is time we gather our tracts together and go out.”
Father responded by saying, “Son, it is a very cold day and pouring down rain!”

The lad gave a very surprised look, saying “But father, are not people still going to hell, even though it is raining?”
“Son, we cannot go out in this weather.” Despondently the boy asked, “May I go, please?” His father hesitated for a moment then said, “Son, you may go, here are some tracts, but do be careful son.”
“Thank you, father!” And with that he was off and out into the rain.

The eleven-year old boy walked the streets of the town, going from door to door, handing to all he met, a Gospel tract. Two hours later he was soaked, bone-chilled, wet and down to his very last tract. He stopped on the street corner and looked for someone to whom he could pass on this very last one, but the streets were totally deserted.


He then turned forward the first home he saw, went up to the front door and rang the bell. Nobody answered. He rang it again and again but still no answer. He waited and still no answer. Finally he turned to leave but something stopped him. Again he turned to face the door, ring the bell, and also knock loudly on the door. He waited, something holding him there at the front door. He rang once again and this time the door slowly opened.

Standing in the doorway was a very sad-looking elderly lady. She asked softly, “What can I do for you, son?”
With radiant eyes and a smile that lit up her world, the little boy said, “Ma’am, I’m sorry if I disturbed you, but I just want to tell you that God really does love you and I came to give you this my very last Gospel tract which will tell you all about Jesus, His great sacrifice and love. With that he handed her his last tract and turned to leave. She called out to him as he departed –
“Thank you son and may God bless you.”



The following Sunday morning the Pastor and father was in the pulpit. As the service began, he asked, “Does anybody have a testimony they would like to give?”
Quietly and slowly in the back row an elderly lady stood up. As she began to speak a look of glorious radiance was upon her face.
She said, “No one in his meeting knows me. I’ve never been here before. You see, before last Sunday I was not a believer. My husband passed away some time ago, leaving me totally alone in this world.

Last Sunday being a particularly cold and rainy day, it was even more so cold in my heart, for I had come to the end of all hope – I could no longer go on. I had no desire nor will to live. So, I took a rope and chair and ascended the stairway into the attic. I fastened the rope securely to a rafter in the roof, then stood upon the chair and fastened the other end of the rope around my neck. Standing upon that chair, so lonely and miserable, I was about to leap off when suddenly the loud ringing of my doorbell downstairs startled me. I thought, I’ll wait a minute and whoever it is will go away. I waited and waited but the ringing of the doorbell seemed to get louder and more insistent. Then the person ringing the doorbell began also to knock loudly. I thought to myself, who on earth can this be? Nobody ever rings my bell or come to see me.



I loosened the rope from my neck and headed for the front door as the bell rang louder and louder. When I opened the door and looked, I could hardly believe my eyes. For there was the most radiant and angelic-faced little boy that I had ever seen in my life. His smile, oh I could never describe it to you! And the words that came from his mouth, caused my heart that had so long been so dead, to leap to life, as he exclaimed with an angel-like voice, ‘Ma’am, I just came to tell you that God really does love you!’ Then he gave me this Gospel tract that I now hold in my hand and the Angel-boy disappeared out into the cold and rain. I closed the door and read slowly every word of this tract. I then went up to my attic to get that rope and chair. I would not be needing them anymore, for you see, I believed and became a happy child of God. Since the address of your place was on the back of this tract, I have come here to personally say ‘thank-you’ to God, for His little messenger came ‘in just the nick of time’ and by so doing, spared my soul from an eternity of separation from God, in hell.”

By this time there were now no dry eyes, and shouts of praise and thanksgiving resounded to the very rafters of the building. Pastor-dad descended from the pulpit to the front seat where the little lad was seated. He took his son up in his arms and sobbed uncontrollably. Probably this universe had never seen a father that was more filled with love and honour for his son, – except for One.

That Father allowed also His Son to go out into a cold and dark world. He even sent Him into the world. He received back this Son with joy unspeakable, as all heaven shouted praises and honor to God. The Father seated His own beloved Son on His throne far above every principality and power and every name that is named. Jesus Christ is Son of God and Saviour of the world! He is God the Saviour.


Tignes-100-225x300There may be someone who is reading this who is also going through a dark, cold and lonely time in his or her soul. You may even be a Christian, for Christians are not without problems, or you may not yet know the Lord Jesus Christ as your own Saviour. Whatever the case and whatever the problem or situation you find yourself in and no matter how dark it may seem, I want you to know that I just came to tell you that God really does love you. He really does. He sent His Son to suffer, die and bear in Himself the just punishment for your sins.

Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you shall be saved.

“How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?” (Romans 10:14)

Good News of Resurrection


Jesus said …  : “I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live” (  John 11:25)



2014-01-21 11.31.13

If we do not believe that Jesus Christ has risen from the dead, we would also not be able to believe that a mere mortal will rise again from death.


We must know precisely that the person who has said: ” I am the resurrection, and the life”, He is not just any common human being , He is the Saviour of all mankind. He is Christ, the Son of the Living God.


The good news of resurrection is that, because Christ has risen from death, those who believe in Him will have the same assurance : though he were dead, yet shall he live.” 

When Jesus Christ said the above words to Martha, He was very near to the path of the cross. However, for the sake of glorifying the Father and for the sake of showing the world that He was sent by Him, He needed to perform one miracle: to raise Lazarus from death, even after he died four days already.


2014-01-21 11.33.11


How is  the resurrection a good news to you and to me?

For Lazarus himself, he had experienced real resurrection on that day! For Martha, who had heard from her own ears the Lord’s promise of resurrection, had eye-witnessed the resurrection of her own brother!

For us, who believe in Him, because of the Lord Jesus Christ’s resurrection, we could also receive this promise and accept this assurance: he that believeth in me,though he were dead, yet shall he live.” 




Today, my body of perishable and corruptive, on that very Day, will not only be resurrected; it will also become an incorruptible and ever-living body. And it will be able to live with God in His glory for ever and ever.

Do not wait until the resurrection after death; even now, you could have a taste of this resurrection life. When you trust in Jesus Christ, His resurrection power will come upon you. You could then experience this vibrant life power.

The resurrection of Christ has ascertained to us his accomplishment of the salvation.

Why? Because God has already called sinners “justified”; and He has forfeited their deserved penalties. So that those who believe and trust in Jesus Christ, they will receive a new and eternal life.




“Therefore if any man be in Christ , he is a new creature :  old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. ” (II Corinthians 5:17)


Friend , do you believe in the resurrection ?  From the moment you start trusting in the Lord Jesus Christ, you will attain this resurrection life.

Listen to

Mary Magdalene

— A true Easter story



Mary stood just near the cross in deepest misery,

The Lord she loved so very much, Had died in agony.

She could not understand it all, Her grief was very deep,

In anguish great she lingered there, And many saw her weep.



She sorrowed through the Sabbath day, But first day of the week,

She went into the garden Her dear Lord to seek.

But oh! The scene that met her eyes, The stone was rolled away

And in the tomb – two angels sat, Where the Lord did lay.




Oh! Where was the master? The precious Lord she sought,

What ever could have happened, She bowed her head – distraught.

Then the angel spoke to her, And asked her why she wept,

“My precious Lord has disappeared Although a watch was kept.”



And as she turned away from them, Blinded, by her tears,

She saw somebody standing near And told him, of her fears

And as the stranger spoke her name, Her heart leapt at His word,

“Mary, don’t you know me,” Yes, it was her Lord.




2014-01-10 13.57.00

“Master” was her joyous cry, As at His feet she fell,

“Mary, do not touch me, But go – my brethren tell.

“Tell them I have risen, From death and from the grave,

That now I have the power, All men’s souls to save.”



And so the gospel story, God’s living word so true

Tell of Jesus glory, And His Love for you

If you truly seek Him, He your name will call,

Kneel at His feet like Mary, Just surrender all.

Listen to :  It Is Finished

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

John 19:30

From the cross this triumphant word was uttered, “It Is Finished!”


Cologne 0302

Three words in English, two in Chinese, but just one in the original Greek.  That one word “tetalestai” sounds much more impressive, and is more glorious, than all other words. 

It is the shout of victory from the lips of a Conqueror.  The word means more than just imply, the work was done.  It embodies the thought of “perfect” or “complete.” 

We humans finish a good many things, but they are never perfect and complete. 

All that man touches is tainted with failure and imperfection – not so however, this great work of our blessed Lord Jesus Christ. 

He came to do GOD the Father’s will, to glorify GOD, to take away the sin of the world.


What did He finish? Redemption.  He purchased the entire world of men, women, boys and girls. 

He paid full price, to redeem that is, buy back to God, the lost world of sinners.


On that cross, by sacrifice of His precious blood, He accomplished the will of God and laid the basis for the carrying out of God’s eternal plan and purpose in redemption of wisdom, love and power.


His death was an accomplishment. With us as humans, death is a pitiful demonstration of sin and failure. Death, for us ends all our hopes, works and our will.


He did not say, “I am finished,” but “It is finished.” When I die I am finished, as far as my work is concerned; but when Jesus died He actually commenced His work.


He starts where others end. We discover this when we are saved. When we give up doing things to try to save ourselves, then, He saves us.

His priestly ministry began when He died, and now that He is risen from the dead and seated on the throne, He continues that blessed ministry. 

He died to save and now lives to continue to save and keep all who believe Him.


IMG_20131023_hall cross

Yes, it is all “finished.” The great work of redemption was finished once and for all.  By one offering He perfects forever all those that are sanctified. 

Nothing can be added to His perfect work, – you cannot improve upon it by adding “good works” to it. 

GOD is totally satisfied with the sacrifice of Jesus Christ.  Nothing can be taken from it, for it is all done by GOD.





Let us remind ourselves however, that there is still an “unfinished” work.  The first verse of the book of Acts tells that “Jesus began both to do and to teach.” He did not finish this other work. 

Christ alone could do that mighty work of redemption; but He has left other work that we are privileged to undertake. 

Christ laid the foundation for the salvation of sinners in His precious death on Calvary, when He shed His life’s blood, and now as His people, redeemed and sanctified, we are to carry on the work of building on that foundation.

We are to be diligent; seeking to win souls for Christ, that they as living stones, might be built into this great Building, His Body, the Church, where He may dwell forever in the midst.


You will be able to take part in this work if you believe in Christ as your Saviour and Lord.


Let us be earnest in His service, so that we may someday hear these glowing words of commendation which He once spoke concerning the believer and disciple Mary, “She hath done what she could.





What is the cause of mankind’s darkness in understanding; and such confusion in apprehension, that results in a complete misunderstanding in religion?


IMG_2949 - openBible

The reason is they know not the doctrine of the cross of Christ, and why, when upon the Cross He loudly and triumphantly cried out, “It is Finished.”


That cross indisputably demonstrates mankind’s imperative need of redemption, and that the death penalty (spiritual, physical, eternal death,) is met by the Son of GOD, Jesus Christ. 

All must experience that cross in order that another life, eternal life, – a life out of resurrection, may be imparted to those who will believe.


People in general do not understand the cross.  Most think as the Jew thought, that Judaism would introduce a great and lasting kingdom, and that religion would improve and change mankind’s nature. 

Most, utterly mistake the gospel, by thinking that Christianity is destined to improve humanity. The cross does not speak of an improvement of mankind, but rather an end.


The cross, the ultimate symbol of a death execution of open shame, suffering and pain, states clearly that this is the end of all hope in mankind.


The eternal Son of GOD representatively offers Himself up in sacrifice for ungodly sinners.  He will bear away your sins, but only if you believe Him. 

The cross speaks of death, judgment and sacrifice on behalf of others.


Christ died for the ungodly,” that is for sinners like me and like you He died, to give us this never-to-be-repeated opportunity, which is to have our sins forgiven, to be pardoned and to possess eternal life.


During this day of GOD’s grace reigning through righteousness, all who are offended by the preaching of the cross and who are stumbled because of This Man Jesus Who said, “IT IS FINISHED,”- shall be lost forever.


Instead of being stumble, and offended because of Christ and His cross, all who humbly fall at His feet, believing Him and His word, shall experience what it is to pass from death into what is truly Life.


GOD is still inviting sinners to come, believe and be saved and safe forever.


Come to Jesus – believing Him and His word,  “IT IS FINISHED

About the “IT IS FINISHED” poster

CBR has produced thousands of these posters and they can be found in many homes throughout China.

One aged sister in Hainan province had a worn and folded copy that she would at first opportunity unfold and happily use to witness to others, stating that none except the Lord Jesus could say that He had completely finished the work He came to do.

If you have believed Christ’s finished work, you too can have the privilege and joy to witness to others how great is this Person hand His work completed on behalf of all.

Have You Thought About Your Soul?


mmexport1387413501153Have you ever stopped to wonder

What this life is all about?

Why you’re here and where you’re going

When your lease of time runs out?


Maybe you’ve been too busy,

Trying hard to reach your goal;

Would you let me ask you kindly,

Have you thought about your soul?


Paris 080903 0164 Eiffel tower

You may reach the highest portals,

And your dreams may all come true,

Wealth and fame may be your portion,

And success may shine on you.


All your friends may sing your praises,

Not a care on you may roll;

What about the great tomorrow

Have you thought about your soul?


Paris 080903 0203 round the Eiffel tower

Don’t forget your days are numbered

Though you may be riding high,

But, like all of us poor mortals,

Someday, you sure will die.


Your success and fame and glory,

Won’t be worth the bell they toll;

Let me ask you just one question,

Have you thought about your soul?


If you’ve never thought it over,

Spend a little time today;

There is nothing more important,

That will ever come your way,


Northern Europe (5) 1239

Than the joys of sins forgiven,

And to know you’ve been made whole,

In the Name of Christ, my Saviour,

Stop and think about your soul.

Everyday they pass me by,
I can see it in their eyes
Empty people filled with care
Headed who knows where


On they go through private pain,
Living fear to fear
Laughter hides their silent cries
Only Jesus hears


People need the Lord
People need the Lord
At the end of broken dreams
He’s the open door


People need the Lord
People need the Lord
When will we realise
People need the Lord


We are called to take his light
To a world where wrong seems right
What could be too great a cost
For sharing life with one who’s lost?


Through his love our heart can feel
All the grief they bear
They must hear the words of life
Only we can share


People need the Lord
People need the Lord
At the end of broken dreams
He’s the open door


People need the Lord
People need the Lord
When will we realise
That we must give our lives, for
People need the Lord

I Am The Lord’s! O Joy Beyond Expression







1.   I am the Lord’s !  O joy be-yond ex-pres-sion, O sweet re-sponse to voice of love di-vine;

Faith’s joy-ous Yes   to the as-sur-ing whis-per,   Fear not , I have re-deemed thee, thou art Mine.




2.   I am the Lord’s !  it hush-es eve-ry mur-mur,  It soothes the fev-ered spir-it to its rest;  I am the Lord’s !   it is the child’s re-join-der, Who knows and feel the Fa-ther’s will is best.





3.   I am the Lord’s !  O  ea-ger-ly and glad-ly, Tri-umph-ant-ly and grate-fu-ly we sing;  I am the Lord’s ! it is the rock un-fail-ing   To which our storm-tossed souls in dan-ger cling.




4.   I am the Lord’s !  yet teach me all it mean-eth,   All it in- volves of love and loy- al- ty,  Of ho-ly ser-vice, full and glad sur- ren- der,  And un- re- served   o- be- dience  un – to Thee.




5.   I am the Lord’s !   yes; bod-y, soul and spir-it;  They’re sealed,  and  ir-re-cov-er-a-bly  Thine;  As  Thou,  Be- lov- ed,   in Thy grace and ful-ness    For ev-er and for ev-er – more art mine.

My Desire For You







“I pray not that Thou should take them out of the world, but that Thou should keep them from evil.” (John 17:15)


P1030776-300x225That thou may’st daily gather
Fresh tokens of HIS LOVE,
For ever round thee falling
As manna from above!
That ever midst the worry
Of busy outward life,
Thine inner life may flourish
Unhindered by the strife:


That thou may’st know HIS
To brighten all the way,
And prove HIS GRACE sufficient
For each succeeding day:




That more increased attractions
In Jesus thou may’st see,
And mine is but an echo
