Eclipsed By Glory

We must never eclipse the glory of our God

Or show He doesn’t exist or He’s fake or a fraud

He’s true, He is kind, and He’s faithful to His Word

His message is the one that I hope you have heard

God came as a man to save all that are lost

He came with a message and ended on a cross

His message is this for all who wants to hear

His message is salvation and He says it very clear

He came, He died and was raise on the third day

To save us from our sin and heal us from our evil ways

He came to save, forgive and seal us with His spirit

This is the gospel message can you come and hear it

If you confess with your mouth, believe it in your hart

Jesus is Lord and He will give a new start

He was raised to life on the third day

To give us a new chance to walk in His ways

Christ loves us for this is what I know

This is a way of life not a game or a show

This is what one would call an inside job

The change in your hart can only be done by this God

He is alive this very day not a fake nor a fraud

He’s sovereign, He’s just He’s our one true God

Out Of Darkness Into The Light

Out of darkness and into the light

I was blind then You restored my sight

Enslaved in chains because my fear

Had no hope and was full of tears

Lost in bondage without a voice

Feeling alone without a choice

You are my rescue You are my aide

You broke my chains now my debt is paid

I was lost in darkness now I’m found

You picked me up when I was down

You gave me mercy when I deserved to die

I now have life and one more try

You gave me love that covered my sin

Pulled me out of the mess I was in

You loved me most when I was lost

You atoned for sin upon that cross

My debt is paid I’ve been set free

All because You died on Calvary

I jump for joy I sing this Praise

I’ll walk with Jesus in all my days

You healed my heart with Your grace

It’s Your Presence that I embrace

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
