I know it’s You who can feel my pain

It’s in you alone that my life gains

I walk with You when life gets tough

Even tho my shell reveals I’m rough

In my brokenness when I am lost

I turn to Jesus and face the cross

You heal my heart from the scars

The battle wounds caused by wars

A struggle I have is in my mind

It tells me lies that has me blind

I try to walk down a narrow road

But all this crud has me slowed

I hear Your voice that draws me near

That gives me strength to persevere

When life is dark you are my Light

You are solid ground in this fight

It’s to You I come when I am broken

It is in You alone that I find hope in

In my brokenness I see your hand

That guides me in the Promise Land

Now I am saved from my evil ways

On Your path do not let me stay

I walk with You now that I am free

Thankful to Christ who died on that tree

Christ humbled Himself and became a man

He came with a message obeying God’s plan

He would bleed on the cross to save man’s soul

For this was said by the prophets of old

He came to die to set man free

On a cross that was meant for me

Death could not hold Him in the grave

It was for the lost and broken He came to save

He was raised to life on the third day

Ahead of us He prepared the way

He heals the sick, the lame and the lost

If you want to follow Jesus you must count the cost

He gave us His Spirit to be our guide

Our heart is where His Spirit resides

I used to be broken with a hole in my heart

Until I met Jesus, He gave me a new start

In brokenness that I can’t hide

It’s You Jesus that I confide

In my walk it’s Your strength I need

When I break Your heart, it’s Your blood I bleed

Higher than mine is Your ways

From Your Word I do not stray

In my weakness I need You

It’s Your Word that I hold on to

Faith through grace is what I need

On the Cross Christ did bleed

His blood is the sacrifice that atoned for sin

Will I call on Jesus with the mess I’m in

Jesus Christ is the only way

To see Holy God on that day

If you are in need of grace

Or strength to help you in this race

Call on Jesus , He’s our friend

He’ll walk with us till the end

He sent His Spirit to be our guide

He loves us all with arms stretched wide

It was is in the wee hours of a star lit night

Wise men were guided by a star so bright

They were following what the prophets foretold

Bringing with them myrrh, frankincense, and gold

They were gifts for the new born king

The child of which the angels did sing

Conceived by God’s Spirit not by a man

Born of a virgin for this was God’s plan

Sent from God this child sublime

Redemption came from this perfect paradigm

This child came with a message that He must tell

His message of redemption that saves us from hell

This message of redemption we all must hear

Oh Holy Spirit come open our ears

Open our hearts to receive God’s Word

The message of Christ is the message we heard

The Son of God is King at birth

His message is told throughout the earth

If you’re in need of hope on Christmas this year

It’s the message of Christ I pray that you hear

I awoke one morning with pain in my heart

Trying to find words is a hard start

I describe the pain as one big hole

Empty was I with an ache in my soul

I describe the ache with one big sigh

Temptation set in and I wanted to get high

My mouth began to water, I got a taste in my mouth

My mind began to wonder and my thoughts went south

I start thinking about back in the day

How I started using drugs and lost my own way

My soul became empty and broken was I

My thoughts were churning how I wanted to die

I needed a fix and I needed it right then

Broken was I and I thought it was the end

I rolled onto to the floor and on to my knees

I said a quick prayer, Lord will You please

I heard a soft voice whisper in my ear

Come to me child I’ll draw you near

That was the day my life began to change

I found a Savior in Christ who no longer was strange

I gave Him my life and submitted to His ways

With the strength of His Spirit, I don’t have to stray

I call Him my friend, I call Him my Lord

I stay in His Word to sharpen my Sword

He led me with His Spirit and filled that hole

I am no longer empty I gave Him my soul

Lord I will not be shaken

Even tho in my boots I am quaking

It is You that I find hope in

Even tho I am broken

Lord I will not be moved

Even tho satan is smooth

You are the rock in which I stand

As long as I reach up for Your hand

You will never lead me astray

For this Your Word does say

I will never have to worry or fear

Because You will draw me near

Your arms are always open wide

You said You’d never leave my side

The same Spirit that rose Christ from the grave

Is the same Spirit that leads me today

Lord you are my strength

As long as I don’t keep You at arms length

You are a promise from God

In You, forever I will be Awed

He alone chose to die for me

When we nailed Him on that Calvary’s tree

It was a decision that God had made

Jesus was the man who obeyed

He walked this earth for thirty three years

He paid the price for all of our fears

Now sin and pleasure come with a price

Who’s counting the cost it never ends nice

The price for sin is death this I know

You must die to yourself and let the change show

When I say die I mean turn from your sin

This is a change that God can only do from within

Christ reaches in and changes your heart

Regenerates your life to give you a new start

Forgiveness of sin is what we desire

As we walk with our God His ways we aspire
