Zac Poonen Hymns

The Church Is My Home

The Church is my home
By Zac Poonen (written in 2009)
Tune of “The Home Of The Range”

verse1
The church is my home
And I never will roam,
I will stay here on all of life’s way
For I’ve never once heard
A discouraging word,
But only been blessed every day.

chorus
O, the church is my home,
Where I’ll live and I’ll work and I’ll pray;
For I’ve never once heard
A discouraging word,
But only been blessed every day

verse2
Here the Spirit is free
And the Word blesses me,
And the fellowship’s glorious I see.
So I’ll never give room
For any darkness or gloom
Or for all that this world offers me.

Lord Give Me Light

Lord Give Me Light
By Zac Poonen (written in 1979)
Tune of “I’m Pressing On The Upward Way”

verse1
If I have not forsaken all
In answer to Thy loving call;
If I’ve kept something back from Thee,
Lord, give me light, that I might see.

Chorus
Lord, help me judge myself each day,
To walk this new and living way
I seek Thy grace with all my heart,
To be made pure, just as Thou art.

verse2
If anything upon this earth
Attracts me with its sense of worth;
If money has a hold on me,
Lord, give me light, that I might see.

verse3
If all my life revolves round me
And thoughts of my own family;
If I am living selfishly,
Lord, give me light, that I might see.

verse4
Is there some good I should have done?
Is there some soul I should have won?
Have I hurt someone thoughtlessly?
Lord, give me light, that I might see.

verse5
If someone’s failure has not wrought
Concern and care within my heart;
If I’ve judged others inwardly,
Lord, give me light, that I might see.

verse6
If I have cared for men’s applause
Or sought my own and shunned the cross;
If I have feared man’s mockery,
Lord give me light, that I might see.

verse7
If I’ve not sought Thy pow’r in prayer
Because of earthly toils and care;
If I’m not longing after Thee,
Lord give me light, that I might see.
