When frustration is bursting though my veins

My minds on fire like a fresh wrecked train

There is steam a blowing out my ears

It’s pouring out because I can hardly hear

There are too many voices stacked in a crowd

There are people in my head who’s voices are loud

Chaos is happening all over the place

One foot at a time I’m sinking in this race

So I drop to me knees and ask my Lord what to do

I can’t do this on my own so I must put my trust in You

I ask You in my prayer to help me discern

Which way I must go for I know I must turn

It’s Your voice that I desire to hear

Not from satan whispering in my ear

The choices that I made led me down a deadly path

Thankful to Your grace I don’t have to see Your wrath

The sin in my life had me separated from my God

Because Christ’s righteousness You never see my flaws

I have choices today because of what Christ did on the cross

I live my life for Him, not live like I’m lost

If you’re on the road that leads to sin

Turn and seek the power within


It is God’s Spirit that guides our way

We read His Word so we will not stray


It is His commands we must obey

To follow His Truth and love His way


We heard Christ’s message we must fulfill

We hear His voice when we’re still


The message of the cross is the power within

Christ conquered the grave and covered our sin


He feeds our hunger and quenches our thirst

God desires for us to put Him first


To love is the command that we must fulfill

Although we are sinners He loves us still

Lord forgive me is what I pray

It’s my sin I give to you today


Help me not to take it back

Your strength is what I lack


I’m as broken as can be

Before you on my knees


I ask You for Your grace

Because I am losing in this race


The devil is on the prowl

I can hear his grizzly growl


He’s like a sneaky snake

My heart is what he wants to take


He’s on the hunt and chase

To ware me down in this race


But I’m hidden in God’s arms

For the devil can no longer harm


I have victory in my God

Even though I’m filthy flawed


Lord I submit to you today

All I am, this is what I pray

It was God’s plan from the beginning of time

To put Christ on the cross to redeem mankind

For man was in rebellion against our great God

It was man’s sin that caused him to be flawed

Along with the sin man decided to hide

Separated from God no longer at His side

Man had to work by the sweat of his brow

Herding the sheep and pushing the plow

Fast forward in time around 4000 years

Jesus was born with a message so clear

Even from birth, He gave the world hope

That His great love was spread through the globe

The reason He came was to die on the cross

He rose the third day, therefore saving the lost

Jesus’ walk was perfect from birth

To redeem us from sin and give us rebirth

From the beginning of time, man’s life was filled with sin

We all know we don’t want satan to win

So we pray to our Lord to give us His Grace

To give us His strength and His love through this race

Sin had a debt that had to be paid in full

So that you can have life, oh what a jewel


Christ paid the debt of all that was due

There is nothing required of me or of you


There is nothing you can add to His unfailing grace

Christ’ gave us all that we need for this race


Mercy and grace is provided by God

Man can’t do a thing all because he’s flawed


No amount of works can take the place of grace

We have to put trust in Christ, grace come thru faith


I hope that you know there’s a call on your life

Put your trust in God and reach out to Christ


God put Christ on the cross so you can have His grace

It’s the gift of God, will you join us in this race


You don’t have to wear no fancy clothes or a shiny hat

Put your faith in Christ, He’ll meet you were you’re at

When you see storms coming round

Reach for Christ, He can be found


When the winds come blowing thru

Christ our Rock will hold you true


When temptation seems too strong

Stand on the Word you can’t go wrong


When the devil has you down

Reach for Christ, He’s your Solid Ground


When sin has you in it’s claws

You can find strength at the cross


When life just has you beat

Lay your burdens at Christ’ feet


Jesus will meet you where you are

He will never be afar


Jesus is the answer with what you do

He will always be there for you

It’s God’s love we’re called to display

Our walk is how we show it from day to day

Our life is to show His amazing grace

It’s not about how fast we run this race

We’re called to be kind and love everyone

Our life is to reflect how grace was won

It’s all about how God showed His love for man

To put Christ on a cross was God’s plan

It was the only way for man to be redeemed

Because we won’t stop turning our back on God it seems

The cross is God’s way to show His love

After the cross Christ ascended to heaven above

Then He sent His Spirit to be our guiding light

He helps us obey His commands in this fight

His Spirit convicts us of our sin

Then helps us walk out of the mess we’re in

He forgives our sin as we confess

He calms our anxiety and our stress

Christ will then transform and cleanse our heart

From then from the world we will be set apart

As we read His Word our minds get renewed

Which changes our whole attitude

Now we want to live and serve our God

Who loves us even though we’re flawed
