On the hill at Calvary

You died upon that cursed tree

I hid my life in shame and fear

I trust the One who draws me near

I cast my anxiety on the cross

You died for me when I was lost

My soul is free I will not die

I trust my Lord and not the lie

It’s when I put my trust in You

I know that You will carry me thru

From the beginning to the end

I’ll have Your Spirit that You did send

Your Spirit lives with-in my heart

Every day with You I start

You died upon that cursed tree

You died alone to set me free

I’ve been set free from guilt and sin

Never to go back again

It’s when I put my faith in You

You keep me awed in all You do

I bring my burdens to the cross

It’s in You I never get lost

My forgiveness come from faith in You

Grace thru faith is Your Truth

On the hill at Calvary

You died and rose, that’s what set me free

Who’s my strength, who’s my power

Who’s my help in every hour

I can lean on Him when times are rough

He convicts my heart when I’m acting tough

He’s the joy in my heart when I’m down and out

He picks me up when I frown and pout

When my world seems to be crashing down

He extends His hand when I’m on the ground

He is my fortress, He is my rock

He never times out off the clock

Christ’ always there when I’m a mess

Or when someone in the world causes stress

He’s my pick me up when I’m all depressed

He’s the stable in my camp when I regress

When I am lost and know not what to do

He comes along beside you know who

When I’m stuck in pride and it’s all about me

He gently prunes dead limbs off my tree

It’s fruit that He wants me to bear

Even when I’m pulling out my hair

I must remember where it all began

Back in the garden God had a plan

Adam ate the fruit and believed the lie

That he’d be like God and never have to die

God had a plan to redeem all sin

Even every mess we get stuck in

He sent His Son to hang on the tree

To provide salvation to all who believe

This is what God does all for me

When He decided to hang on that tree

If you’re lost and know not what to do

Put your faith in Jesus, He’ll save you too

It was on a hill that You died for me

A blessed place called Calvary

I remember how I was blind and lost

You never fretted at the cost

You called me out of sin and shame

It was from Your voice I heard my name

I was broken, beaten, black and blue

What a day to be called by You

What a day, a glorious day

I’m free at last, to walk Your way

I obey Your Word, I obey Your voice

You calm my mind caused by noise

I have voices living in my head

You cast them out, now their dead

It was out of hell that I’ve been called

You broke my chains, You, crashed my walls

From out of the darkness, into the light

My trust is in You thru this fight

You are my strength in this war

It was my sin that You bore

I’ve been made new, the old is done

I’m living in victory cause the war’s been won

When her love seems so far away

I remember who gave me this day

I know she doesn’t belong to me

It’s Your love that sets me free

How can You do this to her and me

Why do I have to think so selfishly

Why do you have to put her thru this pain

What’s the loss and what’s the gain

Is there a risk that we have to take

You know it’s fear that makes me shake

I try to put my trust in You

But I get depressed and it makes me blue

I try to show that I’m so tough

But my strength goes up with a puff

There are times she’s my inspiration

And there are times I’m lost in depression

When depressed I want to weep

Then at night I cry myself to sleep

It’s a fear that You’ll take her home

Then I’ll be lost and all alone

I never dreamt this will happen to my love

But I know Your Sovereign and seated above

It’s to You I’m crying out

I’m trusting You but help me where I doubt

You love her more than I ever could

But I’m learning to love her like I should

What are we to learn, how are we to live

What’s the message that we’re supposed to give

You have Your will, and nothing will thwart Your plan

Help me to be grounded in You and firmly stand

These are the questions that run thru my head

Please give us peace so fear will not be our dread

Seasons come, Seasons go

The battle rages for your soul

It’s your faith that stands the test

Lean to God, He’ll give you rest

The devil tells you only lies

As your soul, to take, he tries

A believer’s soul he cannot take

In your boots, he wants you to shake

To live in fear is his aim

To believe the lie is his game

But thankful for a loving God

Who loves you even tho you’re flawed

It was on the tree He paid the price

It was His life He sacrificed

He cleansed you when you’re dead in sin

Then sent His Spirit to live within

His Spirit is now your guide

He forgives your sin deep and wide

Thankful to a loving God

That died to free you from your flaws

Giving Thanks

On the dawn of a new day

A day for giving thanks

My heart is more rich

Than all the money in the bank

In my heart I must ask

What am I thankful for

First and foremost

That Christ knocked at my door

He saw a broken man

That needed more than fixing up

He offered me a drink

Of Living Water from His cup

This Water is the source

That gives life to the lost

He came with a purpose

To died on the cross

He came with a message

Redemption is Gods plan

How they all asked

Could this come from this man

He was man and God

Wrapped all in one

He’s the King of Kings

He is Gods only Son

If you asked me again

What I’m most thankful for

It was on that day

That Christ knocked at my door

Christ Broke My Chains

He Set Me Free


You broke my chains to set me free

I now have hope because I believe


I believe in Jesus, He is the Christ

He is the perfect Lamb that was sacrificed


His Blood was spilled on that tree

He died on the cross to set me free


He conquered death over the grave

Three days later to life He was raised


He ascended to Heaven to sit on His throne

Heaven is the place we now call home


He called me out of darkness into the light

He gave me His Spirit to help in this fight


When I stumble and when I fall

I know His voice when He calls


When I make mistakes and my sin sticks out

He’s always there to show me a different route


I want my desires to match His ways

So, on this path I will not stray


I now have hope because I believe

Christ Broke My Chains

 He set me Free
