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

A fool in his heart says there’s no God

We have to ask for grace because we are flawed

Sin entered the world thru rebellion of one man

Tho the redemption of one man God had a plan

In the likeness of man God sent His Son

Thru His death on the cross salvation was won

Forgiveness is what He extended to all

God’s grace is what covered the fall

If you believe in your heart not just your head

That Jesus is God and He was raised from the dead

Then you will be saved from death caused by sin

His Spirit will now come and live within

Have you confessed with your mouth that Jesus is God

Because His love on the cross covers over our flaws

This is fact, not fiction, not false, but True

It comes from the Word of God and He’s looking for you

If you have a question or burden deep down in your heart

Look to Jesus as Savior for He’ll give you a new start

This is God’s story, this is His song

It’s the Word I will preach all day the day long

Romans 10:9

If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.

Amen!

A Mountain Called Calvary

 

We know Jesus came from heaven for we’ll see Him face to face

It is His power that he gives us to run this very race

 

It’s all because of mercy, His grace He freely gives

It’s only thru the cross we learn how to live

 

His commands are a guiding force for us to obey

It is His path we walk and learn to not stray

 

His Truth is what frees us from our death and sin

His Spirit is who draws us then comes to live within

 

His grace He freely offers for all who want to partake

It is chains of unforgiveness that He wants to break

 

It’s our heart He wants to change from the inside out

It’s our faith wants to increase so we never have to doubt

 

Jesus is our teacher for He wants us to learn

That grace is a gift that we can never earn

 

Jesus paid the ransom by hanging on the tree

He hung on the mountain called Calvary

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

It was in the dead and dark of night

I was quaking in my spirit and nothing was right

I looked around me and nothing could I see

But I knew something was there, it was staring at me

Then I could see it’s beady eyes, looking all around

Looking to and fro, then up then down

It started to move, I was quaking in my skin

Was it in my mind, playing tricks within

In my mind I was trembling with fear

Was God around or was He even near

I cried out loud and dropped to my knees

Asking in a prayer if He could help me please

I knew not, what this was all about

Or who this is, was he big or stout

I heard this voice, gently speaking to me

He spoke to my heart, drawing me unto Thee

My heart began to change, transforming within

I started to read His Word and discovered it was my sin

I confessed my sin, forgiveness is what He gave

For He is true to His Word, He’s faithful to save

His mercy and grace was bestowed on me

All because He died on that tree

With fear and trembling is how I live

I gave Him my life, now service is what I give

He paid my ransom, my debt is now paid

The condition of my sentence is faithfully waved

His grace and mercy I could never earn

But the depth of His love is what I live to learn

I no longer live in fear or afraid in this fight

Jesus is my life, for Jesus is my Light

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

It’s the church that we are called to be

Because Christ died on Calvary’s tree

It was the lost He came to save

Death couldn’t hold Him in the grave

On the third day He rose to life

To conquer sin and strife

It was His message that was spread

From His Word is where it’s read

His commands we learn to obey

As we walk with Him each day

He came to redeem us all

From the curse of the fall

He will come in and change your heart

From there you will be set apart

We then have a new life to live

It’s our service we learn to give

The church is who we are called to be

Now this is the call for you and me
