Today was hopeless

I knew that I was lost

I needed a Savior

The one that hung on the cross

 

It was on that tree

That I first saw Your grace

It was Your power, Your mercy

That let me enter this race

 

I will trust You and trust You

You will help me persevere

When times get tough

You will draw me near

 

It’s You love, yes Your love

That forgives all my sin

With arms stretched wide

Your Spirit lives with

 

Now I have hope

Because Your grace covers me

I’m thankful to God

That You died upon that tree

 

It was the grave

That couldn’t hold you down

When I feel weak

You put me on solid ground

 

It was Your love

That found me when I was lost

Now I’m have a home

Because You died upon that cross

He Called Me By Name

From out of the dark into the light

No longer in fear no longer my plight

I once lived with no hope cover in scars

Locked in a prison chained behind bars

The prison was mostly in my own mind

Out of control the gears started to grind

Billowing smoke from out of my own ears

Grinding and grinding, grinding all the gears

This prison I hosted started with lies

They came from the devil all in disguise

One little lie then two then three

Running amuck chasing after me

I ran, and I ran then I ran to the cross

I found my Savior there He knew I was lost

He extended His hand then called me by name

He taught me how to walk I was no longer lame

I started believing Truth not the old lies

I started believing Jesus not the devil in disguise

The more I believed Jesus the more I found solid ground

The devil can huff and puff, but he can’t blow my house down

I am standing on the promises of my loving God

Who’s love forgives sin and all of my flaws

I gave my life to Jesus, it’s Jesus I serve

Living for Jesus is how I won’t swerve

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

Freed From The Chains

You are the Truth
That sets men free
You are the Word
That was nailed to the tree

I was broken and flawed
All bound in chains
With scars thru my heart
I had nothing but pain

My eyes were soaked
With nothing but tears
My heart was crying out
I was shaking with fear

I was lost in the dark
Couldn’t find a way out
The voices in my head
Wanted to scream and shout

I was tied to my sin
While in captivity
Until I met that man
That was nailed to that tree

On a dead-end road
He knew I was lost
He told me right then
That’s why He died on the cross

He met me right there
Right where I was at
I was in the middle of sin
I knew I was trapped

He reached for my hand
To give me a hand up
He gave me living water
He said drink from this cup

He said walk this way
Go and sin no more
That was the day
That Christ knocked at my door

Free From A Snare

When I was young I had no hope

I often dazed I couldn’t cope

I found a new path but was led astray

Now in the dark I learned to play

As I played without a care

I soon found out I was in a snare

The snare was strung from tree to limb

With eyes half closed this looked so grim

Now in a mess with no way out

I soon began to moan and doubt

My thoughts and doubts were full of fear

I wished somehow someone was near

I heard a voice in the distant air

This was somehow an answered prayer

This voice reached down and grabbed my hand

Then led me to the promise land

At the gate I couldn’t walk in

Because my life was full of sin

This voice explained He was my God

How He loved me even tho I’m flawed

His love will cover all my sin

Then free me from the mess I’m in

He began to tell me how He died

To free me from all satans lies

He proceeded to tell about the cross

How He died to save who’s lost

His plan of salvation is my hope

Free from sin I now can cope

His salvation freed me from my sin

Now in my heart His Spirit lives within

I’m a child of God I am His heir

I am set free from my snare

Lord, it’s my struggles

I lift up to you today

Forgiveness of my sin

is what I ask when I pray

A multitude of sin

is covered by Your love

You are my pardon

sent from heaven above

You called me out of darkness

into the light

My strength comes from You

as I persevere in this fight

When I’m falling down

I reach up for Your hand

You pick me up

then guide me back to the promise land

Oh, how I love

to hear Your still calm voice

It stops the chatter

that’s nothing but noise

I remember when I was lost

You spoke to my heart

You did more than clean me up

You gave me a brand new start

The old is life is gone

I live the new life today

I dig into Your Word

it helps me not to stray

Seal me with Your Spirit

forever be my guide

You’ll always draw me close

You’ll never leave my side

It was God who met me

in the middle of my sin

With a message to my heart

that was buried within

With all the pain and confusion

I wanted to die

I was lonely inside

no more tears could I cry

With cuts and bruises

all thru my dreary soul

To the depths of the earth

I thought I would go

Now I wanted to run

I wanted to hide

I thought I was alone

with no one by my side

The air got still

I heard a calm voice

All the chatter in my head

was nothing but noise

The noise got quiet

my heart began to race

With arms stretched wide

He extended me grace

He died on the cross

to save this dreary soul

To give me a new life

so my Savior I will know

A relationship with Christ

are what God desires

Obedience to His Word

I want to aspire

Forgiveness of sin

is the message I have heard

I get this message

from Studying His Word

Now if you are lost

can’t seem to find your way

Stop what you are doing

then begin to pray

Ask for Jesus

to come into your heart

To give you a new life

to give you a new start

Ask for His peace

to come rest in your soul

So, the depths of the earth

you never have to go
