Heaven’s My Home

 

My chains are heavy

They weigh me down

I can’t pick my feet up

From off the ground

 

I am in a prison

Behind steal bars

My heart is broken

All full of scars

 

This is a prison

In my mind

I found this out

For the very first time

 

During a time

When I was lost

When I was searching

I then found the cross

 

I heard the gospel

I heard it real clear

I heard Christ’ voice

He drew me in near

 

He changed my heart

From the inside out

He removed my fears

He cast my doubt

 

I now bring my burdens

To the foot of the cross

So no longer will I stumble

Or ever be lost

 

I now have security

I am an heir to the throne

I’ll never get lost

Because Heaven’s My Home

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

Freedom In Christ

 

Born as a babe

a Savior is come

To a lost world

where sin they succumb

He came as a Savior

He came as a King

A message to the broken

is what He did bring

He raised the dead

the sick He healed

With a message for hearts

His Word is revealed

He called them out of darkness

in sin they were lost

He obeyed His Father

all the way to the cross

He was beaten and bullied

He was nailed to the tree

He completed Gods plan

by dying for you and me

Redemption was planned

since before the fall

To those that believe

their life has a call

In Jesus we believe

that He conquered the grave

Death couldn’t hold Him

in three days He was raised

Salvation He offers

forgiveness He gives

Freedom in Christ

is how we now life

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

Know the Lord and He will know you

Obey His Word and know that He’s true

He’s faithful and kind for this I know

Walk in His ways and His Truth will show

Draw to the Lord and He will draw you in

He died on the cross to forgive all your sin

He conquered death and rose from the grave

He obeyed God so your soul He will save

Give Him your life and submit to His will

Your life will have joy that’s more than a thrill

He will give you His Spirit and guide your way

From His path you will never have to stray

Call out to God and He will give you His hand

He will free you from bondage so you can enter the land

He knows your struggles that hold you back

He’ll hold you close when under attack

When you want to hide behind a wall of fear

He’ll hold you in close and dry every tear

He will forever be your guiding light

By removing the scales to give you His sight

Now ask Him for strength to run this very race

Then bring Him your burdens in exchange for His grace

Our Savior was hung on a criminals cross

Dying for all, forgiving who’s lost

He was born by the Spirit, yet walked as a man

Walking in obedience, He completed God’s plan

He is the reconciliation between man and God

He is our redemption since man has been flawed

Let’s rejoice in our sorrow and rejoice in our pain

He came as our Savior, Forever He’ll reign

He is Alpha, Omega, the Beginning and End

After the ascension, His Spirit He did send

I stand in amazement, I stand in awe

He takes me as I am, with all of my flaws

I rejoice in sadness, I rejoice when in fear

I know I can call out, He draws me in near

I submit to His Lordship, I submit to my God

I’ll forever be His, He’ll forever be awed

I stand in His mercy, I’m saved by His grace

He is my strength to persevere in this race

He called me out of darkness, into the light

I answered His call, I walked away from my plight

He offered me freedom, He set me apart

It’s a new life He gives right from the start

I’m sealed by His Spirit, forever His child

All because of Jesus I have been reconciled

Your love is like an ocean

Running the depths of the seas

Water all around me

It’s me You will never leave

Your grace is never ending

Reaching throughout the stars

It changed my evil heart

It healed my deepest scars

You died to give me freedom

From death caused by sin

It’s forgiveness that You offer

Now Your Spirit lives within

Your Word is my refuge

From the voices and the lies

If it wasn’t for Your mercy

I would forever die

The cross was meant to save me

That’s the hope that I must live

I bring my burdens to the alter

For the freedom my Savior gives

Your salvation is my joy

A servants heart I bring

You are my Lord and Savior

Now praises I’ll forever sing
