Have a Little Talk With Jesus Hymn Lyrics

Reverend Cleavant Derricks

Below are the lyrics of this beautiful hymn, Just A Little Talk With Jesus.

I once was lost in sin, but Jesus took me in
And let a little light from heaven fills my soul.
He bathed my heart in love, and He wrote my name above
And just a little talk with Jesus makes me whole.

(Now let us) have a little talk with Jesus
(Let us) tell Him all about our troubles
(He will) hear our fainted cry
(He will) answer by and by
(When you) feel a little prayer wheel turning
(And you) will know a little fire is burnin'
(You will) find a little talk with Jesus makes it right.

I may have doubts and fears, my eye be filled with tears
But Jesus is a friend who watches day and night
I go to him in prayer, He knows my every care
And just a little talk with my Jesus make it right.

(Now let us) have a little talk with Jesus
(Let us) tell Him all about our troubles
(He will) hear our fainted cry
(He will) answer by and by
(When you) feel a little prayer wheel turning
(And you) will know a little fire is burnin'
(You will) find a little talk with Jesus makes it right.

And just a little talk with Jesus makes it right...

Will Your Anchor Hold?- Story Behind This Classic Hymn

Will Your Anchor Hold History The author of this hymn, "Will Your Anchor Hold", is Priscilla Owens . She was born in Baltimore, USA in 1829 of Scottish and Welsh blood. For over 50 years Priscilla Owens was actively involved in work for Christian youths and most of her songs were therefore composed for children.  Besides this hymn she is also well known as the composer of another beloved Christian hymn, "We have heard a joyful sound". She also composed several other hymns during her fruitful life on earth. "Will Your Anchor Hold" was sung outside the door of the dying hymn-writer Mary Fawler Maude (Thine For Ever! God of love). She sent her singers the message, "Tell them that it does not fail - it holds." The hymn suggests that personal stability can only come from the right foundations. It employs a seafaring analogy in making its point. Will Your Anchor Hold In The Storms of Life? (hymn) Will Your Anchor Hold Lyrics Be

Master The Tempest Is Raging Hymn Story and Lyrics

Master The Tempest Is Raging History The words of this hymn, Master The Tempest Is Raging, were written by Mary Ann Baker and they were set to music by Dr. H R Palmer in 1874. The song was published in Dr. Palmer's Songs of Love For The Bible School. The inspiration for this song is the story of Jesus and the disciples crossing the Sea of Galilee when they encountered a big storm and their boat was at risk of capsizing.  As the Bible reports Jesus was fast asleep while his disciples were fighting the storm and fearing for their lives. They soon realized that the savior was with them in the boat and woke him up. They complained to him saying, "Master, carest thou not that we perish." Horatio Palmer Christ stood in the midst of the storm and rebuked the wind saying, "Peace, be still" and the storm stopped. Master The Tempest Is Raging Lyrics Master, the tempest is raging!
