My House Is Full

1.] there is peace and contenment in my father's house today. lot's of food on the table, and no one is turned away. there is singing and laughter as the hours pass by, but a hush calms the singing as my father sadly cries.

cho.] my house is full, but my fields is empty who will go and work for me today. it seems my children all want to stay around my table, but no one wants to work in my fields, no one wants to work in my fields.

2.] push away from the table look out through the window pane. just beyond this house of plenty lies a field of golden grain, and it's white unto harvest, but the reapers where are they in a house oh can't the children hear their father sadly cry.

i hope this the song you are looking for. God Bless! sherry

My House is Full
There is peace and contentment in my Father's house today,
Lots of food on His table and no one turned away.
There is singing and laughter as the hours pass by,
But a hush calms the singing as the Father sadly cries,

My house is full, but my field is empty,
Who will go and work for Me today.
It seems my children want to stay around
my table,
But no one wants to work my fields,
No one wants to work my fields.

Push away from the table.
Look out through the windowpane,
Just beyond the house of plenty
Lies a field of golden grain.
And it's ripe unto harvest,
But the reapers, where are they?
In the house,
Oh, can't the children hear
the Father sadly say,

My house is full, but my field is empty,
Who will go and work for Me today.
It seems my children want to stay around my table,
But no one wants to work my fields,
No one wants to work my fields.


The song above "My House is Full, But My Field is Empty"
was written by Lanny Wolfe.

The lyrics I remember are

Amazing love, how can it be that thou my God wouldst die for me?
Glad I approach the eternal throne..

I heard it at a funeral in a Baptist Church and I think Wesley wrote it.
Thanks for looking it up for me.

AND CAN IT BE?

And can it be that I should gain
An in-t'rest in the Soviour's blood!
Died He for me, who caused His pain?
For me, who Him to death pur-sured?
Amazing love! How can it be
That Thou, my God, shouldst die for me?

REFRAIN 1
Amazing love! How can it be
That Thou, my God, shouldst die for me?

He left His Father's throne a-bove,
So free, so in infinite His grace!
Emptied himself of all but love,
And bled for Ad-am's helpless race.
'Tis mer-cy all, immense and free!
For, O my God, it found out me!

REFRAIN 2

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 quick'ning ray.
I woke; the dungeon flamed with light!
My chains fell off; my heart was free.
I rose, went forth, and followed Thee.

REFRAIN 3

My chains fell off; my heart was free.
I rose, went forth, and followed Thee.

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 thro Christ, my own.

REFRAIN 4
