Love Lifted Me

Happy Father’s Day to all the dad’s, gradpa’s, uncles and those that take the place of dad in someone’s life. May the love of our Heavenly Father lift you with love today. God Bless!

Love Lifted Me

I was sinking deep in sin, far from the peaceful shore,
Very deeply stained within, sinking to rise no more,
But the Master of the sea, heard my despairing cry,
From the waters lifted me, now safe am I.

Love lifted me! Love lifted me!
When nothing else could help
Love lifted me!

All my heart to Him I give, ever to Him I’ll cling
In His blessèd presence live, ever His praises sing,
Love so mighty and so true, merits my soul’s best songs,
Faithful, loving service too, to Him belongs.


Souls in danger look above, Jesus completely saves,
He will lift you by His love, out of the angry waves.
He’s the Master of the sea, billows His will obey,
He your Savior wants to be, be saved today.

If you could see your ancestors all standing in a row,
Would you be proud of them or not?
Or don’t you really know? . . .

But here’s another question
Which requires a different view
If you could meet your ancestors
Would they be proud of you?
