Rest

The burdens of life take a toll

Struggling carrying such heavy loads

Of worries and fears through the night

But your yoke is easy your burden is light

You’re gentle and humble

And I’ll learn from you 

To be gentle and humble

And love like you do

So I come to you 

To find my rest

Songs from the Mount Lyrics

 

Blessed

 

To those whose spirits are poor

To those who weep and mourn

To those who are mild and meek

Who hunger and thirst and seek

 

The kingdom of God is yours

 

To those whose hearts are pure

Who stand up for peace on earth

To those who are persecuted

Rejoice! For Christ you are rooted

 

The kingdom of God is yours

The kingdom of God is yours

 

You are blessed and highly favored

By the God of all creation

He will be your comfort and your King

You’ll find justice in His mercy

In the fullness of His glory

Forever in His presence you will be

As children of God

 

To those who show mercy

Mercy will be shown

If enemies speak falsely

The truth shall be known

 

For great is your reward in heaven

Great is your reward in heaven

 

Salt & Light

 

You are the salt

The salt 

Of the earth 

 

How can salt

If it loses its saltiness

Be restored?

 

You are the light

The light 

Of the world 

 

No one takes a lamp

And lights it

Just to hide it

A city on a hill

Cannot be hidden

 

Shine your light

So all of the world

Can see your good works

And give glory to God 

 

Fulfill

 

I did not come

To abolish the law

I came not to abolish but fulfill

 

Unless your righteousness exceeds

That of the scribes and Pharisees

You'll never enter in the kingdom of heaven

 

Anyone who breaks the law 

And teaches others to do the same

Will be called the least

But anyone who does the law 

And teaches others to do the same

Will be called great

In the kingdom of heaven

 

Already Guilty

 

You’ve heard it said

You shall not murder

But I say to you

Friend it’s not that simple

 

You’re already guilty 

If there’s hate in your heart

 

You’ve heard it said

Don’t commit adultery

But I say to you

There’s more to being free

 

You’re already guilty

If there’s lust in your heart

 

If your right eye causes you to sin

Tear it out and throw it away

 

If your right hand causes you to sin

Cut it off and throw it away

 

'Cause it’s better to lose a part

Than to lose it all

Than to lose it all 

 

Yes

 

You’ve heard it said

Do not swear falsely

 

But I say to you

Do not swear at all

 

Let your yes be yes

And no be no

Don’t swear on anything at all

 

Not on heaven

Not on earth

Not on your life

Or any other oath

 

Just let your word

Be true and that's enough

 

Love Your Enemies

 

You've heard it said

An eye for an eye

And tooth for a tooth

 

But I say to you

Do not resist an evildoer

 

Turn the other cheek

Go the extra mile

Shed another layer

Love your enemies

 

You've heard it said

Love your neighbor

Hate your enemies

 

But I say to you

Love your enemies

And pray for them

 

What good is it

To love the ones who love you?

What gain is there

To only greet your family?

 

Love your enemies

Secretly

 

When you give to others

Do so undercover

And do not let your left hand

Know what the right is doing

 

When you spend time in prayer

Close the door to your room

And do not be found out

In your times of fasting

So that you'll receive your reward

 

You're to secretly, quietly   

Humbly seek to be good 

You're to secretly, quietly

Humbly seek to see God

 

If others see

    Then you've received

    But what goes unseen

Your Father sees secretly

    

And secretly you'll receive 

As It Is

 

When you're praying

Avoid empty phrases

You're not heard

For your many words

 

Your Father knows your heart

Before you even start

So when you pray

Pray this way 

 

Our Father in heaven

Holy is Your Name

Your kingdom come

Your will be done on earth

As it is in heaven 

As it is in heaven 

 

Give us this day our daily bread

And forgive us our debts

As we forgive those who have wronged us

And save us us from ourselves 

 

If you forgive

You'll be forgiven

But if you don't

You won't

Treasure

Where is your treasure?

Where is it stored?

Is it in heaven?

Or is it on earth?

 

Where are your eyes?

Where is your prize?

Is it in dirt?

Or in the skies?

 

Is it where moth and rust 

Can consume and where

Thieves break in and steal?

Or where moth nor rust

Can not consume nor

Thieves break in and steal?

 

Where your treasure is

There your heart is 

 

There your heart is too

THe Eye

The eye is the lamp

The lamp of the body

       So when your eye is healthy

Then your whole body will be full of light

 

The eye is the lamp

The lamp of the body

So if your eye’s unhealthy

Then your whole body will be full of darkness

And how great is that darkness

 

How great is that darkness

Master

A slave cannot serve

Two different masters

He'll hate the one 

And love the other

You cannot serve

Both God and wealth

You must choose

Who you'll serve

 

You must choose

Who you'll serve

Who you'll serve 

 

What master will you let rule you

God or wealth?

Don't Worry

Look at the birds of the air 

they don't store up food 

and they're not wasting away

How much more valuable are you 

in the eyes of God 

Can your worries add a single day?

 

Is life not more than food or drink

Your body more than clothes?

 

Don't worry about life

Don't worry about the food you'll eat 

Or the clothes you'll wear

Don't worry about life

Don't worry about tomorrow

It'll worry about itself

(Each day's got troubles of its own)

 

Look at the lilies in the fields

They're more beautiful than even all the kings and queens

If God would do this to the grass that is thrown away

How much more will He do for you?

 

Seek ye first the kingdom 

And the rest will be given 

 

And don't worry about the rest

Do Not Judge

Do not judge so you may not be judged

For the judgment you make will be the judgment you receive

And the measure you give will be the measure that you get

Do not judge so you may not be judged

Why do you see the speck in your neighbors' eye

But do not notice the log in your own eye?

You hypocrite

First take your own log out

Then you'll see clearly

To help your neighbor out

Ask

Ask and it will be given

Search and you will find

Knock and the door will be opened 

For you 

For everyone who asks receives

And everyone who searches finds

For everyone who knocks doors will open

For everyone who knocks doors will open

If your child asks for bread

You wouldn’t give a stone instead

Or if your child wanted fish

A snake wouldn’t be your gift

If those who are evil

Know how to give

Good gifts to their children

How much more will

Your Father in heaven

Give good things to those who ask Him

To all of those who ask Him

The Narrow Gate

A tree is known by the fruit that it produces

So you will be known for your fruit

Not everyone who calls to God will enter into heaven

But the one who does the will of our Father

Enter through the narrow gate

For the gate is wide and the road is easy

That leads to death

Enter through the narrow gate

Even though the road is hard and few will find it

It leads to life



Do to others what you’d have them do to you

And be perfect as your Father is perfect

Do to others what you’d have them do to you

And that’s all you have to do

Hearers & Doers

Everyone who hears these words 

And also acts on them

Will be like the wise man

Who built his house on rock

The rain fell

The floods came

The winds blew and beat against the house

But the house won't fall

Because it was built on rock 

Oh no the house did not fall

And everyone who hears these words

And does not act on them

Will be like the foolish man

Who built his house on sand and

The rain fell

The floods came

The winds blew and beat against the house

And the house fell

And great was its fall

Because the man built

His house on sand

The rain will fall

The floods will come

The winds will blow and beat against your house

So build your house upon the rock

Don’t just listen but do your part

You got every reason to follow Jesus’ teachings

Build your house upon the rock

Don’t just listen but walk the walk

You got every reason to change the way your living

Don’t just be a hearer

But be a doer

Don’t just be a listener

Be a practitioner
