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

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

Are you lost and broken,

And can’t find your way

 

Have no place to live

Therefore you stray

 

Are you thirsty and hungry

With nothing to eat

 

Cold in the winter

With no shoes on your feet

 

Have you lost your cloak

With no shirt on your back

 

Feel all alone

Running from satans attack

 

Are you broken and lost

With no place to go

 

Turn to the Lord

It’s His way He’ll show

 

He’ll guide you and keep you

He’ll show you the way

 

He will teach you to be humble

He will teach you to pray

 

He will draw you in close

He will draw you from afar

 

He will teach through His Word

He will heal all your scars

 

He is calling you out of darkness

And into the light

 

He wants no one to be lost

He gives Eternal Life

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

Lord forgive me is what I pray

It’s my sin I give to you today

 

Help me not to take it back

Your strength is what I lack

 

I’m as broken as can be

Before you on my knees

 

I ask You for Your grace

Because I am losing in this race

 

The devil is on the prowl

I can hear his grizzly growl

 

He’s like a sneaky snake

My heart is what he wants to take

 

He’s on the hunt and chase

To ware me down in this race

 

But I’m hidden in God’s arms

For the devil can no longer harm

 

I have victory in my God

Even though I’m filthy flawed

 

Lord I submit to you today

All I am, this is what I pray

When you are digging into life by your fingernails

You are grasping at the air like a windblown sail

You stop for a breath of air as you huff and puff

Your minds going crazy as you growl and gruff

 

Is it sin in your heart that you secretly hide

Down a slippery slope as you slosh and slide

You start to confess and breathe with a sigh

Your heart is relieved as Christ draws you nigh

 

But the devil is prowling as if he’s looking to kill

It’s your effectiveness that he wants to steal

So you cling to the cross with everything you have

Christ heals your wounds better than liniment and salve

 

But the devil’s still a prowling as if on a hunt

He lurks in the dark always trying to pull a stunt

He tries to fill your head full of lies that make you quake

It’s your joy that he keeps on trying to take

 

If he gets you going and causing you to doubt

He’ll have you hanging your head causing you to moan and pout

Thankfully Christ never leaves you all alone

It’s your heart that Gods Spirit makes His home

 

God’s Word is implanted in our heart

It’s how we lean on Jesus for a daily fresh start

He convicts our heart when we sin

With Jesus as my answer I can win

 

So if your answer is to tug and fight

Turn to Jesus, for He is Light

Our flaws is not how Christ sees us

Our answer is to be Raised With Jesus

When you feel broken and alone
With no place to call your home

Are you wondering what to do
You feel like people are judging you

Then your emotions start running wild
Along with them your thoughts are viled

You feel like running but no place to turn
Your head is spinning, your stomach churns

Are you stuck and have no place to go
You feel like life is nothing but a show

You have no hope and feel like giving up
Cause you know you’ll never measure up

You’re running on empty and have no choices
Your ears are burning because you hear voices

There’s one voice that sounds out loud
But it is soft because He’s not proud

He’s as humble as the day is wild
His voice calls out, come to me child

Christ stands and knocks will you let Him in
He frees you from the bondage of sin

Christ will forgive when you confess
He will free you from all of this mess

As Christ comes in you get a new start
Right away he starts to soften your heart

He changes you from the inside out
You have tears of joy and you want to shout

You have some hope and want to share
How Christ changed your life and made you an heir
