Questions

When her love seems so far away

I remember who gave me this day

I know she doesn’t belong to me

It’s Your love that sets me free

How can You do this to her and me

Why do I have to think so selfishly

Why do you have to put her thru this pain

What’s the loss and what’s the gain

Is there a risk that we have to take

You know it’s fear that makes me shake

I try to put my trust in You

But I get depressed and it makes me blue

I try to show that I’m so tough

But my strength goes up with a puff

There are times she’s my inspiration

And there are times I’m lost in depression

When depressed I want to weep

Then at night I cry myself to sleep

It’s a fear that You’ll take her home

Then I’ll be lost and all alone

I never dreamt this will happen to my love

But I know Your Sovereign and seated above

It’s to You I’m crying out

I’m trusting You but help me where I doubt

You love her more than I ever could

But I’m learning to love her like I should

What are we to learn, how are we to live

What’s the message that we’re supposed to give

You have Your will, and nothing will thwart Your plan

Help me to be grounded in You and firmly stand

These are the questions that run thru my head

Please give us peace so fear will not be our dread

Today was hopeless

I knew that I was lost

I needed a Savior

The one that hung on the cross

 

It was on that tree

That I first saw Your grace

It was Your power, Your mercy

That let me enter this race

 

I will trust You and trust You

You will help me persevere

When times get tough

You will draw me near

 

It’s You love, yes Your love

That forgives all my sin

With arms stretched wide

Your Spirit lives with

 

Now I have hope

Because Your grace covers me

I’m thankful to God

That You died upon that tree

 

It was the grave

That couldn’t hold you down

When I feel weak

You put me on solid ground

 

It was Your love

That found me when I was lost

Now I’m have a home

Because You died upon that cross

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

Giving Thanks

On the dawn of a new day

A day for giving thanks

My heart is more rich

Than all the money in the bank

In my heart I must ask

What am I thankful for

First and foremost

That Christ knocked at my door

He saw a broken man

That needed more than fixing up

He offered me a drink

Of Living Water from His cup

This Water is the source

That gives life to the lost

He came with a purpose

To died on the cross

He came with a message

Redemption is Gods plan

How they all asked

Could this come from this man

He was man and God

Wrapped all in one

He’s the King of Kings

He is Gods only Son

If you asked me again

What I’m most thankful for

It was on that day

That Christ knocked at my door

My Old Friend

Hello darkness, my old friend

Your time is coming to an end

You were my friend when I was lost

When I seem to never count the cost

It was a time that seemed so fun

Though I was always on the run

My life was always full of stress

Full of fear I must confess

It seemed I was always on the go

Who my friends were I had to know

I met a man who died for me

He was on a cross at Calvary

With arms stretched wide He provided grace

He dried the tears that ran down my face

Then picked me up when I was down

He put me up on solid ground

Now I’m blessed in a whole new way

On this path I think I want to stay

Hello darkness my old friend

Your time is coming to an end

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
