This is the season for thanks we do give
Because grace from our Savior we get to live
He set a path before us when He counted the cost
Christ made a way for the sinner when He died on the cross

This is the season for grace that we don’t spare
It gives way to love and show that we care
He set a path before us when He counted the cost
Christ made a way for the sinner when he died for the lost

This is the season our mercy we must show
It comes from the gifts of the Spirit that we give as we grow
Christ set a path before us when He counted the cost
He made a way for the sinner when He died on the cross

Christ showed us the way that we must live
It’s our words and actions that shows that He lives
Christ set a path before us when He counted the cost
He made a way for the sinner when He died for the lost

Give me the courage to see through Your eyes
To see the world in its disguise
I look around and what do I see
Crime taking place like a disease
I drive down the road look through the streets
People dealing drugs like they are good treats
As I walk and ponder when I’m looking around
Poverty’s taking hold people sleeping on the ground
There’s a man on the corner with a can in his hand
Begging for spare change from every single man
There’s a gang in the ally shaking people down
Scaring all the people that seem to come around
There are children in houses being abused
Women on the streets being misused
There are wars being fought on every single land
People dying in the streets by evil plans
There’s a church on the corner welcoming people in
Pointing people to the Savior who will cleanse them of their sin
As they open Gods Word that points them to the way
They learn about God’s grace and learn they never have to stray
They learn about Gods mercy and how Christ took their place
How He hung on the cross so they can have Gods grace
They learn about salvation how Christ died to save them of their sins
How the Holy Spirit can come and live within
They learn with Jesus how to live and walk
How they’re actions should line up with their talk
They learn to share the gospel everywhere they go
They learn that being a Christian is not living in a show

Christ was there in the beginning He is the Word
He came with a message that had to be heard
In the beginning when man was tempted to fall
He is the redemption that came to save all

Christ was born from a virgin walked as a man
From the beginning this was God’s plan
He preached to the crowds healed all that came
He had a heart for the sick even the lame

Christ fed all the people raised the dead
He was sold by a traitor to His death He was led
Christ was beaten and stricken He counted the cost
He came to redeem man He died on the cross

Christ paid the price in full it was paid
He was raised to life and conquered the grave
By the Blood of Christ through the death on the Cross
He is the answer to life for all who are lost

Here is His message we’re called to hear
Repent of your sin to Him draw near
Open your heart and let Jesus come in
He is the answer to forgiveness of sin

If you are carrying burdens go to the cross
By the Blood of Jesus you don’t have to stay lost
If you are looking for answers Christ is the way
All who come to Jesus will never have to stray

When you find yourself in a bind
Without a choice and left behind
You look around you don’t know what to do
You want to run but you’re stuck like glue
You’re without a plan you don’t know where to go
Your aim is high but your confidence is low
Still without a choice and no way out
You pull out your hair, scream and shout
You lift up your hands high in the air
Then drop to your knees low in despair
You’re full or tears running down your cheeks
You’ve been stuck in this place, for it seems like weeks
You have no place to run so you just want to hide
You are full of emotions and they all seem to collide
Then you hear the gospel and it warms your heart
For the first time in your life you have a place to start
You open your heart and let Christ come in
He offers salvation and freedom from sin
You confess your sin and He breaks your chains
He is your life’s blood that runs through your veins
As you change, you grow and you mature
He does a miracle in your heart your motives become pure
You can’t keep this a secret you must go and tell
You have to share the gospel so others can be spared from hell
