    I know I am always writing out lyrics that have helped me or touched me in some way. So I thought why don't I start a new topic so others can share there favorite lyrics?
    I will start with one of my favorite hymns (I am not completely CHR)

    Be Thou my Vision, O Lord of my heart;
    Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art-
    Thou my best thought , by day or by night,
    Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light.

    In the third verse the best linesof the whole song is given:

    Riches I heed not, nor man's empty praise,
    Thou my inheritance, now and always;
    Thou and Thou only, first in my heart,
    High King of Heaven, my Treasure Thou art!

    If sung properly this song can bring me to tears everytime.

    Matt

    I sing the mighty power of God-

    I sing the mighty power of God, that made the mountains rise,
    That spread the flowing seas abroad, and built the lofty skies.
    I sing the wisdom that ordained the sun to rule the day;
    The moon shines full at God’s command, and all the stars obey.

    I sing the goodness of the Lord, who filled the earth with food,
    Who formed the creatures through the Word, and then pronounced them good.
    Lord, how Thy wonders are displayed, where’er I turn my eye,
    If I survey the ground I tread, or gaze upon the sky.

    There’s not a plant or flower below, but makes Thy glories known,
    And clouds arise, and tempests blow, by order from Thy throne;
    While all that borrows life from Thee is ever in Thy care;
    And everywhere that we can be, Thou, God art present there.

    The way of the cross leads home-

    I must needs go home by the way of the cross,
    There’s no other way but this;
    I shall ne’er get sight of the gates of light,
    If the way of the cross I miss.

    Refrain

    The way of the cross leads home,
    The way of the cross leads home,
    It is sweet to know as I onward go,
    The way of the cross leads home.

    I must needs go on in the blood sprinkled way,
    The path that the Savior trod,
    If I ever climb to the heights sublime,
    Where the soul is at home with God.

    Refrain

    Then I bid farewell to the way of the world,
    To walk in it never more;
    For the Lord says, “Come,” and I seek my home,
    Where He waits at the open door.

    Refrain

    "God saves old sinners"

    The drunk on the street, The rich in their palaces,
    The poor and unlearned, and the men of degree.
    They all have a soul in need of salvation,
    And they all have to come by Calvary.

    Chorus:
    I am so glad God saves old sinners!
    I'm thrilled and amazed How He sets them free.
    But the biggest suprise in redeeming old sinners
    Is that He would save an old sinner like me.

    Was I so wrong that I needed forgiveness?
    And was I so bad I had to be redeemed?
    Well, I wasn't a thief, but I lived in sin's prisons,
    and I was as lost as a sinner could be.

    Chorus

    I'm glad that he saved an old sinner like me!!!

    Not a hymn, nor religeous lyrics. Just something I can't help but think about when I flip on MTV.

    "-You strip the joy, out of the souls; with all of your rules.
    -you are the fashion of now; and the sickening flavor of cool.

    -be careful we're watching, and you can feel us stalking.
    -we're patient, and thorough.
    - you'll never see us let go.

    -we'll steal the fire out of your eyes, and turn it on you.
    -you can surrender or savor the sins of your OWN victories."

    I'm forgiven, because you were forsaken
    I'm accepted, you were condemned
    I'm alive and well, your Spirit lives within me
    Because you died and rose again

    Amazing Love, how can it be
    That my king should die for me
    Amazing Love, I know its true
    It is my joy to honor you, in all I do

    Sometimes, when life seems gentle, and blessings flood my way,
    I turn my gaze away from you, and soon forget to pray,
    But when the sky grows darker, and courage turns to fear
    My anxious voice cries upward with words You long to hear,

    Chorus:
    Lord I need you, When the see of life is calm,
    Oh Lord I need you, When the wind is blowing strong,
    Whether trials come or cease, keep me always on my knees,
    Lord I need you, Lord I need you.

    Lord, help me to remember I'm weak, but you are strong.
    I cannot sing apart from you, for Lord, you are my song,
    And though I'm prone to wander, and to boast in all I do,
    Lord, keep my gaze turned upward, so I depend on you,

    Chorus

    I am so weak and I'm so tired
    It's hard for me to
    Find enough strength to
    Feed the fires
    That fuels my ego
    And consequently all my pride
    Has all but died
    Which leaves me
    Down on my knees
    Back to the place
    I should have started from

    Been beat up
    Been broken down
    Nowhere but up
    When you're face down
    On the ground
    I'm in last place
    If I place at all
    But there's hope for this underdog!
    That's the way uh-uh we like it!
    That's the way uh-uh we like it!
    You can call me the underdog

    I'm in this race to win a prize
    The odds against me
    The world has plans for my demise
    What they don't see is
    That the winner is not judged
    By his small size
    But by the
    Substitute he picks tp
    Run the race
    And mine's already won!

    Chorus

    "You are the Answer" Point of Grace

    They line the wailing wall
    The masses fill up St. Peter's square
    Confessions, emotions
    Spill out of desperate prayer
    I know they're not alone
    They've come to face penitence stone
    I hear the voices, the souls in need of You

    (Chorus)
    You are the answer
    And the meaning of life
    To hearts in darkness
    You're the source of light
    As we walk this human road
    Every question will find
    You are the answer

    Across the playground yard
    Another future society
    Living and learning
    The way it's suppose to be
    The days of truth grow dim
    Your hand must reach and write them
    The message of hope that can only be found in You

    (Chorus)

    You shined Your light in me
    When I had no way
    Rescued my dying heart
    That I could not save
    And not just for me but for the world today

    (Chorus)

    A song about abortion.


    ZAO "Tool to Scream"

    Goodbye, They breathe but cannot scream
    They have no tools to build voices
    They wait in fetal position
    Martyrs on altars of mistakes
    The martyr
    They have not the tools to scream
    They are just the ones upon the altars of mistakes
    There is no safe place
    The marytr

    My Hope is Built on Nothing Less-

    My hope is built on nothing less
    Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness.
    I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
    But wholly trust in Jesus’ Name.

    Refrain

    On Christ the solid Rock I stand,
    All other ground is sinking sand;
    All other ground is sinking sand.

    When darkness seems to hide His face,
    I rest on His unchanging grace.
    In every high and stormy gale,
    My anchor holds within the veil.

    Refrain

    His oath, His covenant, His blood,
    Support me in the whelming flood.
    When all around my soul gives way,
    He then is all my Hope and Stay.

    Refrain

    When He shall come with trumpet sound,
    Oh may I then in Him be found.
    Dressed in His righteousness alone,
    Faultless to stand before the throne.

    Refrain

    Saved By the Blood of the Crucified one-

    Sing praise to the Father and praise to the Son,
    Saved by the blood of the Crucified One!

    Refrain

    Glory, I’m saved! Glory, I’m saved!
    My sins are all pardoned, my guilt is all gone!
    Glory, I’m saved! Glory, I’m saved!
    I am saved by the blood of the Crucified One!

    Refrain

    Saved by the blood of the Crucified One!
    The angels rejoicing because it is done;
    A child of the Father, joint heir with the Son,
    Saved by the blood of the Crucified One!

    Refrain

    Saved by the blood of the Crucified One!
    The Father He spake, and His will it was done;
    Great price of my pardon, His own precious Son;
    Saved by the blood of the Crucified One!

    Refrain

    Saved by the blood of the Crucified One!
    All hail to the Father, all hail to the Son,
    All hail to the Spirit, the great Three in One!
    Saved by the blood of the Crucified One!

    All Hail Immanuel-

    All hail to Thee, Immanuel, we cast our crowns before Thee;
    Let every heart obey Thy will, and every voice adore Thee.
    In praise to Thee, our Savior King, the vibrant chords of Heaven ring,
    And echo back the mighty strain: All hail! All hail! All hail Immanuel!

    Refrain

    Hail to the King we love so well! Immanuel! Immanuel!
    Hail to the King we love so well! Immanuel! Immanuel!
    Glory and honor and majesty, wisdom and power be unto Thee,
    Now and evermore!
    Hail to the King we love so well! Immanuel! Immanuel!
    Hail to the King we love so well! Immanuel! Immanuel!
    King of kings and Lord of lords, all hail, Immanuel!

    All hail to Thee, Immanuel, the ransomed hosts surround Thee;
    And earthly monarchs clamor forth their sovereign King to crown Thee.
    While those redeemed in ages gone, assembled round the great white throne,
    Break forth into immortal song: All hail! All hail! All hail Immanuel!

    Refrain

    All hail to Thee, Immanuel, our risen King and Savior!
    Thy foes are vanquished, and Thou art omnipotent forever.
    Death, sin and hell no longer reign, and Satan’s pow’r is burst in twain;
    Eternal glory to Thy Name: All hail! All hail! All hail Immanuel!

    Refrain

    All Hail the Power of Jesus Name(diadem version)-

    All hail the power of Jesus’ Name! Let angels prostrate fall;
    Bring forth the royal diadem, and crown Him Lord of all.
    Bring forth the royal diadem, and crown Him Lord of all.

    Let highborn seraphs tune the lyre, and as they tune it, fall
    Before His face Who tunes their choir, and crown Him Lord of all.
    Before His face Who tunes their choir, and crown Him Lord of all.

    Crown Him, ye morning stars of light, Who fixed this floating ball;
    Now hail the strength of Israel’s might, and crown Him Lord of all.
    Now hail the strength of Israel’s might, and crown Him Lord of all.

    Crown Him, ye martyrs of your God, who from His altar call;
    Extol the Stem of Jesse’s Rod, and crown Him Lord of all.
    Extol the Stem of Jesse’s Rod, and crown Him Lord of all.

    Ye seed of Israel’s chosen race, ye ransomed from the fall,
    Hail Him Who saves you by His grace, and crown Him Lord of all.
    Hail Him Who saves you by His grace, and crown Him Lord of all.

    Hail Him, ye heirs of David’s line, Whom David Lord did call,
    The God incarnate, Man divine, and crown Him Lord of all,
    The God incarnate, Man divine, and crown Him Lord of all.

    Sinners, whose love can ne’er forget the wormwood and the gall,
    Go spread your trophies at His feet, and crown Him Lord of all.
    Go spread your trophies at His feet, and crown Him Lord of all.

    Let every tribe and every tongue before Him prostrate fall
    And shout in universal song the crownèd Lord of all.
    And shout in universal song the crownèd Lord of all.

    [John Rippon added this verse in 1787]

    O that, with yonder sacred throng, we at His feet may fall,
    Join in the everlasting song, and crown Him Lord of all,
    Join in the everlasting song, and crown Him Lord of all!

    Even though I am not a "youth," I saw this topic and had to post this for all of you. Enjoy!

    When We See Christ

    Esther Kerr Rusthoi   

    Oft times the day seems long, our trials hard to bear,
    We're tempted to complain, to murmur and despair;
    But Christ will soon appear to catch His bride away,
    all tears forever over in God's eternal day.
     
    Sometimes the sky looks dark with not a ray of light,
    We're tossed and driven on, no human help in sight;
    But there is One in heaven who knows our deepest care,
    Let Jesus solve your problem just go to Him in prayer.
     
    Life's day will soon be o'er, all storms forever past,
    We'll cross the great divide to glory, safe at last,
    We'll share the joys of heaven--a harp, a Home, a crown,
    The tempter will be banished, we'll lay our burden down.
     
    Chorus:
     
    It will be worth it all when we see Jesus,
    Life's trials will seem so small, when we see Christ;
    One glimpse of His dear face, all sorrow will erase,
    So bravely run the race 'till we see Christ

    ok I'll through one in... now this isnt a hymn, or really a christian song. its ORIGINALLY by nine inch nails (I'm not a fan if that band) but i heard it sung by johnny cash, on the last album he did. I would ask that you go to yahoo or somewhere and see the music video to it, i was brought to tears when i saw it. here are the lyrics
    I hurt myself today
    To see if I still feel
    I focus on the pain
    The only thing that's real
    The needle tears a hold
    The old familiar sting
    Try to kill it all away
    But I remember everything

    [Chorus:]
    What have I become
    My sweetest friend
    Everyone I know goes away
    In the end
    And you could have it all
    My empire of dirt
    I will let you down
    I will make you hurt

    I wear this crown of thorns
    Upon my liar's chair
    Full of broken thoughts
    I cannot repair
    Beneath the stains of time
    The feelings disappear
    You are someone else
    I am still right here

    [Chorus:]
    What have I become
    My ssweetest friend
    Everyone I know goes away
    In the end
    And you could have it all
    My empire of dirt
    I will let you down
    I will make you hurt

    If I could start again
    A million miles away
    I would keep myself
    I would find a way

    well please check out the music video it makes the point of the song so much better then the lyrics alone. ill be putting up some more songs by one of my favorite artist... later!

    Peace
    Ethan

    Tim McGraw "Live like you were dying"


    He said I was in my early forties
    with a lot of life before me
    when a moment came that stopped me on a dime
    and I spent most of the next days
    looking at the x-rays
    Talking bout the options
    and talking bout sweet time
    I asked him when it sank in
    that this might really be the real end
    how’s it hit you when you get that kinda news
    man what’d you do

    and he said
    I went sky diving
    I went Rocky Mountain climbing
    I went 2.7 seconds on a bull named fumanchu
    and I loved deeper and I spoke sweeter
    and I gave forgiveness I’d been denying
    and he said someday I hope you get the chance
    to live like you were dying.

    He said I was finally the husband
    that most the time I wasn’t
    and I became a friend a friend would like to have
    and all the sudden going fishin
    wasn’t such an imposition
    and I went three times that year I lost my dad
    well I finally read the good book
    and I took a good long hard look
    at what I’d do if I could do it all again

    and then
    I went sky diving
    I went Rocky Mountain climbing
    I went 2.7 seconds on a bull named fumanchu
    and I loved deeper and I spoke sweeter
    and I gave forgiveness I’d been denying
    and he said someday I hope you get the chance
    to live like you were dying.

    Like tomorrow was a gift and you got eternity to think about
    what’d you do with it what did you do with it
    what did I do with it
    what would I do with it?

    Sky diving
    I went Rocky Mountain climbing
    I went 2.7 seconds on a bull named fumanchu
    and then I loved deeper and I spoke sweeter
    and I watched an eagle as it was flying
    and he said someday I hope you get the chance
    to live like you were dying.
    To live like you were dying

    And can it be that I should gain-

    And can it be that I should gain
    An interest in the Savior’s blood?
    Died He for me, who caused His pain—
    For me, who Him to death pursued?
    Amazing love! How can it be,
    That Thou, my God, shouldst die for me?
    Amazing love! How can it be,
    That Thou, my God, shouldst die for me?

    ’Tis mystery all: th’Immortal dies:
    Who can explore His strange design?
    In vain the firstborn seraph tries
    To sound the depths of love divine.
    ’Tis mercy all! Let earth adore,
    Let angel minds inquire no more.
    ’Tis mercy all! Let earth adore;
    Let angel minds inquire no more.

    He left His Father’s throne above
    So free, so infinite His grace—
    Emptied Himself of all but love,
    And bled for Adam’s helpless race:
    ’Tis mercy all, immense and free,
    For O my God, it found out me!
    ’Tis mercy all, immense and free,
    For O my God, it found out me!

    Long my imprisoned spirit lay,
    Fast bound in sin and nature’s night;
    Thine eye diffused a quickening ray—
    I woke, the dungeon flamed with light;
    My chains fell off, my heart was free,
    I rose, went forth, and followed Thee.
    My chains fell off, my heart was free,
    I rose, went forth, and followed Thee.

    Still the small inward voice I hear,
    That whispers all my sins forgiven;
    Still the atoning blood is near,
    That quenched the wrath of hostile Heaven.
    I feel the life His wounds impart;
    I feel the Savior in my heart.
    I feel the life His wounds impart;
    I feel the Savior in my heart.

    No condemnation now I dread;
    Jesus, and all in Him, is mine;
    Alive in Him, my living Head,
    And clothed in righteousness divine,
    Bold I approach th’eternal throne,
    And claim the crown, through Christ my own.
    Bold I approach th’eternal throne,
    And claim the crown, through Christ my own.

    ok here is (i think) my favorite christian artist, lauryn Hill... here is one of her songs "freedom time"
    Freedom Time Lyrics


    [Singing Chorus]
    Everybody knows that they've guilty
    Everybody knows that they've lied
    Everybody knows that they've guilty
    Resting on their conscience eating their inside
    It's freedom, said it's freedom time now
    It's freedom, said it's freedom time now
    Time to get free, oh give us (?)
    It's freedom, said it's freedom time

    [First and only verse]
    Yo, there's a war in the mind, over territory
    For the dominion
    Who will dominate the opinion
    Skisms and isms, keepin' us in forms of religion
    Conformin' our vision
    To the world churches decision
    Trapped in a section
    Submitted to commiting election
    Moral infection
    Epedemic lies and deception
    Insurrection
    Of the highest possible order
    Destortin' our tape recorders
    From here and like under water
    Beyond the borders
    Fond of sin and disorder
    Bound by the strategy
    It's systematic deprivaty
    Heavy as gravity
    Head first in the cavity
    Without a bottom
    A faith, worse than Saddam
    Once got him
    Drunk of the spirits
    Truth comes, we can't hear it
    When you've been, programmed to fear it
    I had a vision
    I was fallin' in indescision
    Apollin', callin' religion
    Some program on television
    How can, dime and the wisdom
    Be recognized in the system
    Of Anti-Christ, the majority rules
    Intelligent fools
    PhD's in illusion
    Masters of massconfusion
    Bacholors in past illusion
    Now who you choosin'
    The head, the tail
    The bloodshed of male
    More confidence in the tale
    Conference is in Yale
    Discussin' Docum and Bale
    Causin' people to fail
    Keepin' the third in jail
    His word is nale
    Everything to the tree
    Severing all of me from all that I used to be
    (?) and void
    Totally paranoid
    Enjoy darkness as the Lord
    Keepin' me from the sword
    Block for mercy
    Bitter than (?)
    Hungry and thirsty
    For good meat we would eat
    And still, dined at the table of deceit
    How incomplete
    From confrontation to retreat
    We prolong the true enemies defeat
    Death to the ascendancy
    Causin' desperation to get the best of me
    Punishment 'til there was nothing left of me
    Realizin' the unescapable death of me
    No options in the valley of decision
    The only doctrine, supernatural circumcision
    Inwardly, only war that can purge the heart
    From words that fire redarts
    Thrown by the workers of the arts
    Iniquity, shapen in
    There'e no escapin' when
    You're whole philosophy is paper thin
    In vanity
    The wide road is insanity
    Could it be all of humanity
    Picture that
    Scripture that
    The origin of a man's heart is black
    How can we show up for
    An invisible war
    Preoccupied with a shadow, makin' love with a whore
    Achin' in sores
    Babylon, the great mystery
    Mother of human history
    System of social sorcery
    Our present condition
    Needs serious recognition
    Where there's no repentance there can be no remission
    And that sentence, more serious than Vietnam
    The atom bomb is Saddam and Minister Farakkhan
    What's goin' on, what's the priority to you
    What authority do we do
    When the majority hasn't a clue
    We majored in curses
    Search the chapters, check the verses
    Recapture the land
    Remove the mark from off of our hands
    So we can stand
    In agreement with his command
    Everything else is damned
    Let them what is understand
    Everything else is damned, let them what is understand

    [Singing Chorus]
    It's freedom, said it's freedom time now
    It's freedom, said it's freedom time now
    It's freedom, I'ma be who I am
    It's freedom time, said it's freedom time
    Everybody knows that they've lied
    Everybody knows that they've perpetrated inside
    Everybody knows that they've guilty, yes
    Resting on their conscience eating their insides
    Get free, be who you're suppost to be
    Freedom, said it's freedom time now
    Freedom, said it's freedom time
    Freedom, freedom time now
