As evil force finds its way in, dare to waver the faith in Him

As evil force finds its way in, dare to waver the faith in Him Test,

As evil force finds its way in, dare to waver the faith in Him Test, using a woman, caught on act, caught her sin, A question demanded from him

Hoping for a mistake, anticipating for a judgment

Hoping for a mistake, anticipating for a judgment To find its way out of His mouth, for that's what they meant

Hoping for a mistake, anticipating for a judgment To find its way out of His mouth, for that's what they meant As they prowl like eager tigers, the time they spent

He bent down, finger writing the Earth Waves of questions kept coming, He stood up and uttered,

He bent down, finger writing the Earth Waves of questions kept coming, He stood up and uttered, "Let anyone of you who is without sin be the first to throw a stone at her."

He lowered Himself down and continued,

He lowered Himself down and continued, writing, it appears From the old to young, they walked away, the crowd lessened, disappeared Until He, crouched, and she, on her feet was left, He straightened

"Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?

"Jesus Calms the Storm" by @midnightmoon294 Based on Mark 4:35-41

The waves were high The men lifted up their cries.

The waves were high The men lifted up their cries. As Jesus slept In fear, they wept

So Jesus arose, rebuked the wind and spoke to the sea.

So Jesus arose, rebuked the wind and spoke to the sea. Caused the dark clouds to flee

So Jesus arose, rebuked the wind and spoke to the sea. Caused the dark clouds to flee Harsh waves and wind they could no longer see

"In Control" by @aprillight Based on Mark 4:35-41

Expecting disciples rooted soundly in knowledge The kingdom has pillars for outreach

Expecting disciples rooted soundly in knowledge The kingdom has pillars for outreach After speaking in parables to the multitudes Words too deep for the carnally minded

On the Sea in a boat with twelve and a Messiah Our of nowhere the still waters became turbulent

On the Sea in a boat with twelve and a Messiah Our of nowhere the still waters became turbulent The raging waters diminished efforts

On the Sea in a boat with twelve and a Messiah Our of nowhere the still waters became turbulent The raging waters diminished efforts Yet Master didn't get up, the storm refused to let up

Scared for life the disciples woke up Jesus

Scared for life the disciples woke up Jesus Thinking he was oblivious to the tempest

Scared for life the disciples woke up Jesus Thinking he was oblivious to the tempest Then with a voice higher than thunder

Scared for life the disciples woke up Jesus Thinking he was oblivious to the tempest Then with a voice higher than thunder He commanded "Peace...Be Still"

In life trouble unexpectedly appears Calling on Jesus is the only chance

In life trouble unexpectedly appears Calling on Jesus is the only chance It may last long but persevere and get a crown

"Jesus and Zachaeus" by @ah124 Based on Luke 19

Jesus, You always look for the lost sheep.

Jesus, You always look for the lost sheep. When you were passing through Jericho,

Jesus, You always look for the lost sheep. When you were passing through Jericho, You saw a man who climbed a sycamore tree to observe You.

Jesus, You always look for the lost sheep. When you were passing through Jericho, You saw a man who climbed a sycamore tree to observe You. He did that out of curiosity, he did not plan to talk to You.

Jesus, You always look for the lost sheep. When you were passing through Jericho, You saw a man who climbed a sycamore tree to observe You. He did that out of curiosity, he did not plan to talk to You. But You knew that the man was lost, truly searching You.

Jesus, You told him that You wanted to stay at his house that day.

Jesus, You told him that You wanted to stay at his house that day. You knocked at his heart.

Jesus, You told him that You wanted to stay at his house that day. You knocked at his heart. Suddenly Zacchaeus was over the moon.

Jesus, You told him that You wanted to stay at his house that day. You knocked at his heart. Suddenly Zacchaeus was over the moon. He probably got used to being despised by others as a chief tax collector, a traitor.

"Battered" by @mhizklaz123 Based on Matthew 27

A crown of thorns Placed they he

A crown of thorns Placed they he Beaten and torn He was for our sake

He took the stripes So we'd live in luxury

He took the stripes So we'd live in luxury They led him away To a place of skulls

And kill him did they Alongside two thieves

And kill him did they Alongside two thieves "This is Jesus of Nazareth, The King of the Jews,"

And kill him did they Alongside two thieves "This is Jesus of Nazareth, The King of the Jews," was the title put on his cross.

Mocked that we be praised,

Mocked that we be praised, Beaten that we be moulded,

Mocked that we be praised, Beaten that we be moulded, Battered that we be beautiful

"God Have Mercy" by @hayha Based on Luke 24:50-53

The sapphire sky gleams freshly polished from all the polluted sins wiped clean

The sapphire sky gleams freshly polished from all the polluted sins wiped clean Quartz clouds flow as free as a river as the roundest diamond lowers

The sapphire sky gleams freshly polished from all the polluted sins wiped clean Quartz clouds flow as free as a river as the roundest diamond lowers to the sparkling ground and the king in pearl waiting below

A ruby crown gracing the fair hairs upon his ethereal head, all his scars from the despairing days before wiped clean,

A ruby crown gracing the fair hairs upon his ethereal head, all his scars from the despairing days before wiped clean, but he endured it all to save the soiled graphite we've become

As he steps upon the cloud, gracing us with his emerald gaze,

As he steps upon the cloud, gracing us with his emerald gaze, we fall to our knees in azure tears streaming down our dirty faces

We don't deserve to be saved by a raw piece of gold, we should be condemned, but his grace gave us mercy

The angelic cloud rises to the heavens like an elevator on a one way trip,

The angelic cloud rises to the heavens like an elevator on a one way trip, but we will see you again, we'll get dirty again, and we'll need to be saved again,

The angelic cloud rises to the heavens like an elevator on a one way trip, but we will see you again, we'll get dirty again, and we'll need to be saved again, God have mercy on us once again.
