Story

This song was written for my good friends Stewart & Kristi McWilliams. I didn't think Stewart had a romantic bone in his body - - but the night he proposed it was incredibly romantic. Almost too good to be true. I love you guys!

Lyrics

When I look in your eyes, it’s like I see forever shining. When I look at your smile, all my worries seem to melt away Then I’m reminded again how love is a gift I’ve found in you And I know it’s part of His plan, almost too good to be true CHORUS: Our love is almost too good to be true, But then I think of His love that’s greater. Almost too good to be true, this life that we will share! He gave His son to show His love for me and you, And then He gave us each other, And it’s almost too good to be true. When I look at our lives together, it’s like I see forever shining Yesterday is gone and He holds the future in His hands Lord keep us by Your side, our trust we place in You And we’ll know it’s part of Your plan, Almost too good to be true.

Story

For the Walton-Whites. You are my family - - and I love you more than I could ever say. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your special day.

Lyrics

(CHORUS) In your love I found the answer to my prayers. From today our forever we will share! When I learned to love the dreams that He had dreamed for me I found love, I found the answer to my prayers. When I look into your eyes, my heart begins to sing Of this love we have this precious gift of God. For I know it was His purpose and His plan that brought us here For in your love I found the answer to my prayers. When I look into your eyes, my yesterdays are gone And tomorrow He is holding in His hand! For I know He holds the future And His grace will lead us there, For in your love I found the answer to my prayers!

Story

This has been one of my favorite songs since I was a teenager. It was the song I sang in my first Christian talent competition when I was in eighth grade. I came in second place! This song has been an incredible blessing to me. Meeting its writer, Marsha Stevens, has been a great blessing too. She is an awesome woman of the Lord and has really influenced me and my ministry.

Lyrics

You said You’d come and share all my sorrows. You said You’d be there for all my tomorrows. I came so close to sending You away, But just like You promised You came there to stay, I just had to pray! (CHORUS) And Jesus said come to the water stand by my side. I know you are thirsty you won’t be denied. I felt every tear drop when in darkness you cried, And I strove to remind you that for those tears I died. Your goodness so great I can’t understand, And dear Lord I know that all this was planned I know You’re here now and always will be Your love loosed my chains and in You I’m free But Jesus why me? Jesus I give you my heart and my soul I know that without God I’d never be whole Savior You opened all the right doors And I thank You and praise You from earth’s humble shores Take me I’m Yours

Story

My absolute favorite hymn of all time. "...my sin, not in part but the whole, is nailed to His cross and I bear it no more, Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord! Oh my soul!" Thank you Jesus!!

Lyrics

When peace like a river attendeth my way, When sorrow like sea billows roll. Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to say, It is well, it is well with my soul! (CHORUS) It is well (it is well), With my soul (with my soul). It is well, it is well with my soul. My sin oh the bliss of this glorious thought. My sin, not in part, but the whole. Is nailed to His cross and I bear it no more! Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord! Oh my soul! And Lord haste the day when my faith shall be sight! The clouds be rolled back as a scroll! The trump shall resound, and the Lord shall descend, “Even so!” It is well, with my soul!

Story

I have loved this song since I was a young man. My Aunt June gave me a Bill Gaither song book when I was just starting to play the piano - - and this song was a part of that collection.

Lyrics

Since I started for the kingdom. Since my life He controls. Since I gave my heart to Jesus, The longer I serve Him, the sweeter He grows! (CHORUS) The longer I serve Him the sweeter He grows! The more that I trust Him, more Love he bestows! Each day is like Heaven, my heart overflows, The Longer I serve Him, the sweeter He grows. Every need He is supplying, plenteous grace He bestows! Every day my way gets brighter, The longer I serve Him, the sweeter He grows!

Story

Another one of my favorite hymns. This one always gets to me!

Lyrics

My Jesus I love Thee, I know Thou art Mine. For Thee all the follies of sin I resign. My gracious Redeemer, my Savior art Thou. If ever I loved Thee, my Jesus ‘tis now. I love Thee because Thou hast first loved me. And purchased my pardon on Calvary’s tree. I love Thee for wearing the thorns on Thy brow. If ever I loved Thee, my Jesus ‘tis now. In mansions of glory and endless delight! I’ll ever adore Thee in heaven so bright! I’ll sing with the glittering crown on my brow, If ever I loved Thee, my Jesus ‘tis now.

This was written for my precious sister Melissa and her husban Russell. It is their story. God is so amazing in the way He brings people together. I love you!

Lyrics

From the moment that I met you, when I first looked in your eyes. I knew my life would never be the same! I found something that I’d searched for in so many different ways. In you Jesus showed to me a love to last all my days. (CHORUS) Then there was you, to make my life brighter. Then there was you, to soothe me with your smile. Then there was you, now my past doesn’t matter I asked Him for His best for me, and then there was you. So in the future when we face the trials that rush in like the night I’ll be standing by you through it all! With Jesus as our Savior and faith that’s built upon the cross Our love will just grow deeper, if in His love we’re lost!

Story

The haunting melody of this song has always touched me very deeply, and when you combine the incredible words, this too makes for one of my favorite hymns.

Lyrics

There is a fountain filled with blood, drawn from Immanuel's veins, And sinners plunged beneath that flood, lose all their guilty stains. Lose all their guilty stains, lose all their guilty stains. And sinners plunged beneath that flood, lose all their guilty stains. The dying thief rejoiced to see, that fountain in his day. And there may I, though vile as he, was all my sins away. Wash all my sins away! Wash all my sins away! And there may I though vile as he, wash all my sins away. E'er since by faith I saw the stream, Thy flowing wounds supply, Redeeming love has been my theme and shall be 'til I die. And shall be 'til I die, and shall be 'til I die. Redeeming love has been my theme, and shall be 'til I die.

Story

One of my mom's favorite hymns - - and mine too.

Lyrics

‘Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus, just to take Him at His word. Just to rest upon His promise, Just to know, “Thus saith the Lord!” Jesus, Jesus how I trust Him! How I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er! Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus! Oh for grace, to trust Him more! O how sweet to trust in Jesus, just to trust his cleansing blood Just in simple faith to plunge me ‘neath the healing, cleansing flood. I’m so glad I learned to trust thee, Precious Jesus, Savior, Friend. and I know that Thou art with me. Wilt be with me to the end.

Story

For my friends Steve and Lisa. Steve was the preacher the night I got saved!

Lyrics

As I walked on through life, looking for that certain someone I wondered if I’d ever find her at all. But when I began to pray and I surrendered You my will Lord that was when, You gave me love. As I walked on through life, looking for that certain someone I wondered if I’d ever find him at all. But when I began to pray and I surrendered You my will Lord that was when, You gave me love. (CHORUS) You gave me love, unlike any other. You gave me love, to last my whole life long. You gave me love, to hold on to forever. I surrendered my will, and You gave me love. Now we’ll walk on through life, united by Your Spirit Hand in hand we’ll face each day bound by Your love. So we stand before You now and we’ll praise Your name forever We give You our lives oh Lord, and You gave us love!
