It's true that God deserves the best... yet loves the Widow's mite...
That tiny gift showed Christ impressed... because He had insight...
He knew that she gave all she had... that she held nothing back...
At such a time when feeling sad... and things were looking black...
She humbles us, though unnamed still... yet Jesus loved her so...
For she obeyed the Father's will... her money she let go...
:
With empty hands, she walked away... because she gave her all...
She didn't merely kneel and pray... for one more miracle...
She knew that God deserves the best... that's why she was so brave...
Of course, she hoped that she'd be blessed... according to her faith...
Perhaps she heard the Saviour teach... and revelation came...
Yet He's the reason that we preach... God's Good News stays the same...
:
And should we ask for partners now... that they may too invest...
To Heaven's Throne, we humbly bow... since God deserves the best...
Disciples come... disciples go... yet bills must still be paid...
And so we keep you in the know... so you come to our aid...
For without you and all your love... our future would look grim...
We simply pray God grants enough... so you... help us... help Him...

From prophecy to Calvary... Christ's journey was decreed,
From Bethlehem to Bethany... the Lord fulfilled Man's need...
Jerusalem was yet in store... the visitation set,
The time for people to adore... Palm Sunday still and yet...
Beyond that day, Christ faced His fate... Passover to prepare,
Last Supper Christ would celebrate... Gethsemane in prayer...
But then, for Jesus, no way out! The Cross of Calvary!
Despite His fear, despite His doubt! Christ died for you and me...

It's prophecy that led Him still... for He knew all flesh dies,
But He loved God! Obeyed His will... when promised He would rise!
So death was not the end for Christ... or that friend on the cross,
The Lamb of God was sacrificed... God led Him there because
Although we've sinned, our sins are waived! Today, we're Heaven bound!
We've been baptised! We're blessed! We're saved! And yet we're still around!
But there's a day in prophecy, the Rapture of the dead,
And then we, too... yes, you and me... up to our Lord are led!

Because of Jesus, I have hope... my hope comes from the Lord,
Christ changes hearts across the globe... with faith to stand assured,
Forgiven every sin we've done... and sins as yet to be,
For God the Father loves His Son... who died on Calvary!
For there is power in His Blood... and power in His Name!
Ascending like a mighty flood... to take away our shame...
Lord Jesus died for all Mankind... upon the Cross of Christ,
That's why the Father's so inclined... to see us all baptised...

While there's a sun and moon above... and stars that span the skies,
Remember this, that God is love! More than you realise!
And so, I'm asking you, right now... to pray a prayer with me,
To close your eyes and humbly bow... praise God for Calvary...
The price was paid by Jesus there! Salvation's on the line!
If we're sincere, God hears each prayer... Yes, even yours and mine...
No other other Saviour should I know... He overcame the grave...
No other Saviour could I know... like Christ who's strong to save!

Why then resist what Christ can do... when sins are washed away?
The Bible says that GOD LOVES YOU! GOD LOVES YOU night and day!

Clocks spring forward and watches, too... computers follow suit,
So nine's now ten, it's true, it's true... when Spring comes, that's quite cute...
And so, this day, time Marches on... this hour changes hands,
And blessed are those who know it's gone... according to Man's plans...
I'll change each clock at home today... each watch that's working still,
From nine to ten, yes, straight away... and won't that be a thrill?
Then my recorders I'll reset... so that they're up-to-date,
So that the programmes I still get... not early or too late...
Has my TV updated now? I wonder, yes or no?
If not, I'll change it soon, somehow... if I must make it so...
Must I change Freeview and Freesat... and others just like Sky?
If yes, at least, when I've done that... I'll prove how time can fly...
It's only once a year for this... till Autumn's back again,
Then it's all change! Oh, my, what bliss... when nine replaces ten...

Our God is great! Our God is good! He works through miracles!
He makes Man's future understood... before His judgement falls...
Declared to Gentiles and to Jews... through ancient prophecies,
Such that this world has no excuse... when judgements must increase...

If we bless Israel, we are blessed! If not, the chance has gone,
So we should harken in the West to how we carry on!
Align with evil or repent! God makes the choices plain...
Forsaking grace when Heaven-sent... or being born again...

God's saints get baptised, then they serve... by faith they show true love,
They preach God's Word across this Earth, like angels do above!
God's saints support what must be done... they seek to save the lost,
Equipped by grace through Christ, God's Son... because He paid the cost!

So it is done, declared, decreed! Established, set in stone!
The Gates of **** shall not succeed... for God is on His Throne!
While ready... willing... and able... to see such matters through,
Our God proves He is wonderful... but can God count on YOU?

Moment by moment, time goes on... to march to its own beat,
Another day has come and gone... its prophecies complete,
But there's one day, that's yet to be... the day that Christ returns,
Till then, it's God's great mystery... beyond what Man discerns...
Yet come that day, the world will stare... when fear strikes every heart,
They'll weep that they neglected prayer... and that they played no part...
They'll mourn they didn't fast at all... nor give their firm support,
They'll sigh they got no miracle... or brought a praise report...
No tithes were offered to the Lord... no sacrifice for sin,
Our Saviour, Jesus, they ignored... that's why the lost won't win...

Prayer journals none sought to possess! Prayer warriors they weren't...
They lacked all godly happiness... for Scriptures they'd not learnt...
They're sinners, losers, every one... they're outcasts one and all,
Not trusting Jesus as God's Son... God's finest miracle!
They've disobeyed without restraints, betrayed both young and old!
Alas, for such as these, dear saints... the ones you should have told!
Baptised, in Jesus Name, you've prayed... God's heard your prayers sublime,
Yet now reflect how far Man's strayed! Repent... redeem the time...
Don't count your blessings, yet not share what God's done through His Son,
Make every lost soul well aware... Christ died... for every one!

How noble must the Saviour be? How could He serve God best?
One miracle for all to see? A healing touch that blessed?
A prophecy for all to hear? A word of knowledge shared?
A servant's heart throughout each year? Long prayers to prove He cared?
A psalm of praise to write and sing? Share parables as well?
Perhaps a precious tithe to bring? Or strongly warn of ****?
Or simply say, 'Be born again!' and thus help minds transform?
Or walk on water now and then? Control the raging storm?

Or bring God's Kingdom not by force... just preaching with a smile?
Or ride a donkey, not a horse? Or walk the second mile?
I know that Christ was Heaven-sent... and Holy Spirit led,
He wanted sinners to repent... that's why Christ's Blood was shed...
The Lamb of God was crucified... and yet He chose to stay...
His precious life was sacrificed... to take our sins away...
How noble must the Saviour be? Enough to die for us...
We found that out through Calvary... the day we found JESUS!
