I hear voices what do they say

One says love and another says stray

If I love what must I do

Follow Gods heart and forever be true

If I stray where will I go

Down the wrong path, away from my hope


I have sin, it’s deep in my heart

I have Your Spirit, which is where I should start

When sin is my greatest desire

Then trusting the world is my greatest empire

It’s You that gives me direction

Thru Your Spirit I get my correction


Your love covers all my sin

And the battle that rages within

I know it’s you that I alone can trust

Faith in You for me is a must

When You died on Cavalry’s Tree

You rose from the grave to set me free


I know I can trust in Your Word

For it’s the Gospel Message I have heard

Your Blood freed me from the bondage of sin

Now it’s the abundant life that I live in

Lord, You provide hope in this life I live

Now service to You I freely give

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

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

Christ broke my chains He set me free
My Savior died on Calvary
He ransomed me He paid my debt
The gates of hell is where we met

When Christ died He freed my soul
He freed my soul to make me whole
Now I’m free I can truly live
That’s because my life I give

When he died day turned to night
He died for me so I wouldn’t lose this fight
As a prisoner I was lost in sin
Until the God’s Spirit drew me in

Now the Spirit is my guide
His conviction I abide
A new creation is what I am
All because the suffering lamb

What did I do how did I get lost
Where did I go wrong did I not count the cost
How did I fall and start slipping away
I took a second look and started to stray
I let temptation creep into my life
I let my own desires start causing me strife
Instead of reading Gods Word I looked at another book
I’d glance at my Bible but wouldn’t give it a second look
This started to put distance between me and my God
I wondered about the problem that caused me to be flawed
Instead of obeying conviction I turned the other way
I couldn’t fight this addiction that was causing me to stray
All of a sudden and completely unaware
I cried out to God and my soul I did bare
You reminded me of what You did on the Cross
How you came to redeem man and all who get lost
The question I ask what must I do to not stray
Study Gods Word it’s His commands I must obey
It doesn’t seem easy and simple I know
To turn from temptation and the other way go
Obeying conviction is the struggle I live
Submitting to Christ my struggles I must give
This is a battle I must not fight by myself
This is a battle I need Christ’s help
He is my power He is my strength
So long as I keep Him close not at arms length
In these struggles I’m learning to persevere
With Christ’s help I’m learning to endure
I’m thankful to God He never gives up on me
I’m thankful for Gods love that was won at Calvary
