I’m a child of the One True King

When I think of Jesus I do nothing but sing

 

It’s in my heart that I praise His Name

Because of His grace He covers my shame

 

My sin is covered because of His Love

My life isn’t here it’s in heaven above

 

I’m bought with a price the price of the cross

He came to find me when I was lost

 

My life isn’t mine it belongs to Him now

I give Him my word for this is my vow

 

It’s in His ways that I learn to walk

How precious is His Blood even when I balk

 

I follow Him now I must count the cost

It’s freedom I find when I kneel at the cross

 

Christ is my refuge in His Word I must hide

He carries my burdens as I walk by His side

Are you sick and weary and feeling lost

A slave to the grind not counting the cost

Is your aim set high but your head’s hung low

Your eyes they weep not knowing where to go

Is your mind spinning always turning you around

You have smile on your face turned upside down

Are your choices eschewed causing you to doubt

Always going in circles with no way out

At the end of the tunnel you see a light

He’s drawing you close wanting your fight

With arms stretched wide he calls out your name

He wants all your struggles and all your shame

He’ll break your chains and set your heart free

He came to redeem by hanging on a tree

He was scorned and beaten had no deceit

With forgiveness in His heart it’s you He wants to meet

He gives you a choice, while offering you grace

He’ll even give you strength to walk in this race

Give Him your burdens lay them at the cross

It’s salvation He offers for all who’s lost

If the waves are high and you’re lost in a storm

Reach out to Jesus it’s you He’ll transform

Grab His hand and hold on tight

Jesus is the answer all thru this fight

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

The King of Israel is born

Unto a world that is sinful and torn

He came for Israel’s lost sheep

But their old ways they’d rather keep

Many miracles He did perform

The Pharisees treated Him with scorn

He healed the sick and the lame

The blind got to see without shame

He had love for all that were lost

His love got Him hung on a cross

Or was it sin that put Him upon that tree

The broken He came to set free

He rose from the grave on the third day

It’s to Him we are thankful we pray

The world is still broken and lost

I am thankful that He hung on that cross

He still comes for all that are broken

His love is what we find hope in

Lord, it’s me again

It’s against You that I have sinned

Lord, to You I confess

I give You all my brokenness

Oh Lord, what shall I do

I want to give my life to You

But something always gets in the way

Oh Lord, please help me not to stray

 

Lord, I give You all of me

Take away my blindness so that I can see

Oh Lord, where I am weak

It’s Your face that I need help to seek

Lord, in my emptiness

Fill me with all Your goodness

In my emptiness, weakness, and where I am broken

It’s only in You that I have hope in

 

Lord, it’s me again

I have confessed to You all my sin

I know it’s You that will forgive

Then teach me how I am to live

It’s only You that can help me start

Lord, I know it’s You that changed my heart

Lord, it’s You to whom I pray

I know You’re the only way

We are told to turn and run from lust

One look can take away all our trust

One look is never just one look

You sneak another and that’s all it took

One look has you captured by surprise

You never look into their eyes

One look inhabits the pleasure zone

Which in the end leaves you all alone

You’re captured by an adrenaline rush

Which turns your reality into mush

One look will cause you to sneak around

When in full bloom has you bound

One look gets you all aroused

Before you know it has you soused

One look has deception whispering in your ears

Then tells you lies that turn into tears

One look has you in chains of selfishness

Then has you blind and saying To Hell With This

One look will rob you of your family

Which will have you chained to calamity

But there is someone who can free you of these chains

Turn to Jesus and hand over the reins

Submit to God resist the devil and he will flee

When you submit to God He’ll be all you’ll see

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
