He Chose the Cross

This song helps to show the reality of what Christ did for us.  Another rendition can be listened to via the MP3 player on the site’s sidebar.

He Chose the Cross

1. To some it’s just an emblem a formality.
It’s a symbol that’s been used so frequently.
Many blaspheme and despise; though it’s ancient, it abides.
A shrine to death, it stands for life to me.

Chorus:
There was a cross made for the Son of God at Calvary.
Two pieces of rough timber on a hill.
Through His hands and through His feet,
He took the nails for you and me.
Angels watched as He did for the lost.
Though He could have walked away, He chose the cross.

2. You see why this old emblem is so dear to me.
It stood for suffering and it brought us peace.
It bridged the gap for man, of cleansing for our sins
An icon that reminds us that we’re free!

Chorus:
There was a cross made for the Son of God at Calvary.
Two pieces of rough timber on a hill.
Through His hands and through His feet,
He took the nails for you and me.
Angels watched as He did for the lost.
Though He could have walked away, He chose the cross.

Bridge:
God forbid that I should ever let my memory fade.
But forever keep the cross in view for that’s where I was saved.

Chorus:
There was a cross made for the Son of God at Calvary.
Two pieces of rough timber on a hill.
Through His hands and through His feet,
He took the nails for you and me.
Angels watched as He did for the lost.
Though He could have walked away, He chose the cross.

Though He could have walked away, He chose the cross.

Just One More Soul

This song is very dear to my heart, and I know the message is very dear to our Lord! He thought Calvary was worth it all for Just One More Soul!

Lyrics:

Just One More Soul

The preachers are weary
The singers are tired
The church as we know it
Is losing its fire
Some are discouraged from bearing the load
But we must determine to keep pressing on

‘Cause if just one more soul
Were to walk down the aisle
It would be worth every struggle
It would be worth every mile
A lifetime of labor is still worth it all
If it rescues just one more soul

So preachers, keep preachin’
And singers, go sing
Laymen, keep sharing
That Jesus is King
The angels have gathered, they’re surrounding the throne
And they’ll start rejoicing for just one more soul

Handful of Weeds – Trenholm Girls

Our girls sang this for Mother’s Day 2009. This is the first time all 6 of them have sung together, and may not be able to again for a long time as Sarah (taller blond) goes to college this fall.

Handful Of Weeds
Sherri Easter

Four years old with dirt on my face
I’d been out in the yard picking dandelions all day
I burst through the front door when I’d gathered enough
To give to my mom to show her my love
When I held out my hand she looked down at me
Said ‘I’ve never seen flowers as beautiful as these.’

Chorus

She’s the one who told me about Jesus
She’s the one who taught me to sing
She deserves an arm full of roses
But she’s satisfied with a handful of weeds.

Now that I’m older and out on my own
I wish I could find more time to make it back home
I could have done better, I know in my heart
Than to scribble a note on a last minute card
Then she calls on the phone and the first thing she says
Is ‘I read this card over and over again.’

Chorus

She’s the one who told me about Jesus
She’s the one who taught me to sing
She deserves an arm full of roses
But she’s satisfied with a handful of weeds

She’s always known what true love means
And I want her to know what she means to me

Chorus

She’s the one who told me about Jesus
She’s the one who taught me to sing
She deserves an arm full of roses
But she’s satisfied with a handful of weeds

She’s more than satisfied with a handful of weeds

For Such a Time as This

Our daughter, Sarah, my website partner, Jerry Bouey, and I wrote this song a few years ago. It was used for our church’s mission conference last fall.

For Such A Time As This
(To the tune of So Little Time by John R. Rice)

1. Esther was called to plead for her people.
Fear gripped her heart; Mordecai reminded her:
Twas her life too that now hung in the balance,
And she was given the king’s ear for this cause.

Despite her fears, boldly she went before the throne,
To plead the cause of her people before the king.
As she drew near, his favor was extended,
Grace was given, for such a time as this.

Chorus:
For such a time as this we have been called,
To preach the Gospel to a dying world.
How will they hear, except that we obey Him?
For such a time, for such a time as this.

2. Stand in the gap, petition for the lost world.
Snatch from the fire, rescue souls bound by their sin.
Break the chains of darkness that’s enslaved them.
Proclaim the truth in Jesus’ blessed name.

So as you stand in the place that God has given you,
Do not fear, He’s standing by your side,
And He will give the grace that you require,
As He promised, for such a time as this.

Chorus:

3. So little time, the day of grace is fading.
The sands of time are slipping through our hands.
Hold forth the Word, the Gospel of Salvation,
Lest you have their blood upon your hands.

Have compassion, our loved ones need the Saviour.
Let it not be said, “No man cared for my soul.”
Lift up your eyes, the field is white to harvest,
For such a time, for such a time as this.

Last Chorus:

For such a time as this we have been called,
To preach the Gospel to a dying world.
How will they hear, except that we obey Him?
Oh will you go, for such a time as this?

For Such A Time As This

(To the tune of So Little Time by John R. Rice)
(Missions Conference Version)

1. Esther was called to plead for her people.
Fear gripped her heart; Mordecai reminded her:
Twas her life too that now hung in the balance,
And she was given the king’s ear for this cause.

Despite her fears, boldly she went before the throne,
To plead the cause of her people before the king.
As she drew near, his favor was extended,
Grace was given, for such a time as this.

Chorus:

For such a time as this we have been called,
To preach the Gospel to a dying world.
How will they hear, except that we obey Him?
For such a time, for such a time as this.

2. So little time, the day of grace is fading.
The sands of time are slipping through our hands.
Hold forth the Word, the Gospel of Salvation,
Lest you have their blood upon your hands.

So as you stand in the place that God has given you,
And you hold, God’s Word in your hands;
Do not forget, all those who’ve yet to see it,
Do what you can, to place one in their hands.

Chorus:

4. Step out by faith, to see what God would have you do,
For the priceless worth, of even one lost soul.
And He will give the grace that you require.
To be exchanged for riches up in glory.

Stand in the gap, petition for the lost world.
Snatch from the fire, rescue souls bound by their sin.
Break the chains of darkness that’s enslaved them.
Proclaim the truth in Jesus’ blessed name.

Chorus:

Final Chorus:

For such a time as this we have been called,
To give the Gospel to a dying world.
How will they hear, except that we obey Him?
Oh will you go, for such a time as this?
