My Father is known for His grace

This is a gift that I must embrace

As I learn to walk with God

One by one He heals me of my flaws

I’ve been called to live by His ways

Staying in His Word helps me not to stray

I submit to Him all my life

This helps not to act out in strife

Christ is my Lord He is my King

I know I can trust Him in everything

He prunes and trims me so I grow

I read His Word so it I will know

I’m a follower of the most High

He set me free so no longer will I die

I follow His ways I follow His Word

It’s the Gospel Message that I have heard

He calls me His child He calls me friend

This message of grace will free you from sin

You are our Lord, You are our King
It’s praises to You that we want to sing
We bow in your presence, we kneel at Your cross
It’s Your message of grace that saves all whose lost
You are the light, You are the way
All who come to You Christ will be saved this very day
You are the well that never runs dry
All who drink of you now will never have to die
You are the banner that hung high on a hill
All who submit to You now will forever be filled
You are the bread that gives us new life
We are Your bride like a husbands new wife
You sent us Your Spirit to convict us of sin
Because of Your grace it’s our hearts that get cleansed
You are the Truth that offers us freedom
We change our old ways for we no longer need them
It is out with the old and in with the new
We give glory to God all because of You

I stand before You, even though I am flawed
I worship and praise you, for You are my God
You open my heart to let the Savior come in
You break all the chains and offer freedom from sin
You gave me salvation, You gave me a new start
You gave me freedom now I give you my heart
My body is the temple where the Spirit does live
You offer forgiveness, it’s grace You do give
So when I stumble and fall flat on my face
You cover my shame, You help me to continue this race
It’s Your conviction and direction that points the way
I stick close to Your Word, it helps me not stray
It’s Your Word and obedience that I must grasp
I’m defined by Your presence not by my past
I read and study, I follow Your Word
I share with others this gospel, it’s the message I’ve heard
It’s because of Your love that Christ died on the cross
It’s because of Your love that I’m no longer lost

Is there someone knocking, will you let Him in
He wants to change your heart, change it from within
He’s calling you out of darkness and in to the light
He wants to be your guide and help you in this fight
Christ starts as your Savior, then becomes your Lord
If you don’t believe these words then you should read your Sword
He offers you freedom from the bondage of sin
He offers you refuge from the mess you are in
If you find yourself in denial or find yourself in strife
Christ will offer you a way that will change your life
All you have to do is open the door of your heart
Believe in Jesus’s Name and He’ll give you a fresh new start
Now you are a new creation, you belong to the Way
As long as you lean on Jesus He will help you not to stray
Let us not forget to confess all of our sin
Jesus will forgive us and come live within
Now you are His children washed white as wool
He sent you His Spirit now your heart is full

Christ came to redeem all who’s lost
He paid it all while upon that cross
If you’re lost and have no one to cling
All your burdens to the cross you must bring
And if you’re lost and have no place to go
Tarry to our Lord His way you must know
And if you’re lost deep in sin
He is the way forgiveness comes from Him
He is the Way the Only Way
From His Word we must not stray
He is the Way the Living Water
He is the only way to the Father
So when I seem to have lost my way
I remember it was Christ who paid

Father,
You never give up on me
And my emptiness
You said you would never leave
Me in my brokenness
I know Your love is true
It brought me to Your Son
You alone provide grace
For You’re the only one

Father,
With Your love You rescued me
From my deep despair
I know I’m never alone
Because Your always there
You broke the chains of sin
When Your Son hung upon the cross
Your Spirit now lives within
To keep me from being lost

Father,
Your Spirit is now my guide
When I don’t know what to do
You are always by my side
To draw me close to You
It’s Your Word I do embrace
It helps me not to swerve
You lovingly provide grace
It’s not what I deserve

Father,
All these things You do
Although I don’t deserve
All you ask of me
Is a willingness to serve
