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

Nails Times Three

It was Christ on the cross

That tore the veil

He was the ransom for sin

That was sending me to hell

 

Nails times three

He was nailed to the tree

He came with a purpose

Then died at Calvary

 

It is a message with purpose

That will not tickle your ears

It gives sight to the blind

Oh, how I can now hear

 

He won’t leave you alone

He is drawing you near

His message has hope

For all that want to hear

 

He has called you out of darkness

So, you can walk in His light

He’ll give you His strength

To endure thru this fight

 

Our battles are won

When we steady the course

It’s our heart that He wants

But won’t take it by force

 

Will you join this here race

Will you endure to the end

Will you walk with the Lord

As He calls you His friend

Romans 10:9 If you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

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

We Stand On The Promises Of God

Sometimes we stumble, then sometimes we fall

It’s out of the darkness that we have been called

It’s because of Gods mercy that we receive grace

Then we are given power to run this very race

It’s thru struggles and trials that we endure pain

On the just and unjust, my friend, it does pour rain

We have been freed from the bondage and slavery to sin

Oh how I thank God, who freed us from the hell we lived in

We have received Christ’ love, now we can walk in His ways

On this path of righteousness, we walk and not sway

We are indwelled with His Spirit, He now is our only guide

We can lean on His promise that He’ll never leave our very side

Thank God for His Truth, thank God for His Word

Thank God for Jesus Christ and the fact He never swerved

We are called to grow disciples from the Word of God

The gospel is what frees us from our very flaws

We can live in Christ’s salvation and the freedom He alone provides

We stand on His promise that He’ll always be at our very side

Christ is our refuge from the evil in this land

When we struggle or fall He’s always here to lend a hand

We sing out Hosanna, we sing to Christ in praise

All on account that Christ has been raised

I Am Saved By His Grace

I want to walk with my Lord

I want to walk in His ways

It’s my desire to be an example

Of His love in every way

He is tender in mercy

He’s faithful to provide grace

He provideth my strength

To endure in this race

When I feel all alone

Can’t see anyone there

I reach up for His hand

Because I know that He cares

He is mighty in power

Yet gentle to the touch

His love conquered death

Because He loves man so much

When I live out His precepts

It’s freedom He gives

I’m no longer in bondage

To the slavery that I lived

When I lived for the world

I was evil at best

My heart seemed hardened

As it beat in my chest

I’m a disciple for the Lord

As I walk in His ways

I obey His Word

So I don’t have to stray

I can count on His mercy

I am saved by His grace

He’s faithful to His Word

His Truth I live to embrace
