No Coffee

Blessed Assurance

Blessed assurance, Jesus is Mine!  O what a foretaste of glory

divine!  Heir of salvation, purchase of God, Born of His Spirit,

washed in His blood.   Refrain


Perfect submission all is at rest, I in my Savior am happy

and blest;  Watching and waiting, looking above, Filled with His goodness, lost in His loveRefrain


Refrain:  This is my story, this is my song, Praising my savior

all the day long;  This is my story, this is my song, Praising my

Savior all the day long.


Open Our Eyes, Lord

Open our eyes, Lord, we want to see Jesus, to reach out

and touch Him, and say that we love Him.


Open ours ears, Lord, and help us to listen, Open our eyes,

Lord, we want to see Jesus.


Breath on Me, Breath of God

Breath on me, Breath of God, Fill me with life anew, That I may love what Thou dost love, And do what Thou wouldst do.


Breath on me, Breath of God, Until my heart is pure, Until my will is one with Thine, To do and to endure.


Breathe on me, Breath of God, Till I am wholly Thine, Until this earthly part of me Glows with Thy fire divine.    A-men
