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

I awoke one morning with pain in my heart

Trying to find words is a hard start

I describe the pain as one big hole

Empty was I with an ache in my soul

I describe the ache with one big sigh

Temptation set in and I wanted to get high

My mouth began to water, I got a taste in my mouth

My mind began to wonder and my thoughts went south

I start thinking about back in the day

How I started using drugs and lost my own way

My soul became empty and broken was I

My thoughts were churning how I wanted to die

I needed a fix and I needed it right then

Broken was I and I thought it was the end

I rolled onto to the floor and on to my knees

I said a quick prayer, Lord will You please

I heard a soft voice whisper in my ear

Come to me child I’ll draw you near

That was the day my life began to change

I found a Savior in Christ who no longer was strange

I gave Him my life and submitted to His ways

With the strength of His Spirit, I don’t have to stray

I call Him my friend, I call Him my Lord

I stay in His Word to sharpen my Sword

He led me with His Spirit and filled that hole

I am no longer empty I gave Him my soul

Oh God I need your desire
Lord please help me light this fire
Will You save me

It’s for You I want to live
It’s all my heart I want to give
Will You save me

Oh Lord it’s sin that causes me to die
Please Lord give me one more try
Won’t You save me

Oh God when I am in a bind
Please help me not be left behind
Won’t you save me

Oh God I need rescuing
It’s Your praise I want to sing
You have saved me

Lord it’s Your love I want to share
With people everywhere
You have saved me

Oh what it’s like to depend on God
He’s my saving grace even though I am flawed
When I get stuck and in a bind
He’s the only one that never leaves me behind
I come to Him all tattered and bruised
He’s my only refuge from being refused
I’ve been kicked and beaten, battered around
He calms the seas so I won’t be drowned
When I come to Him all broken and scarred
He heals my heart where it was hard
I come to Him with my broken heart
He restores my faith right from the start
I come to you Lord broken and beat down
Lacking in faith can’t lift my head off the ground
You show me the way help me to choose
To follow your ways so i never will loose
I never will lose the love you have for me
All because Your Son died on a tree

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

You never give up on me
And my emptiness
You said you would never leave
Me in my brokenness
I know Your love is true
It brought me to Your Son
You alone provide grace
For You’re the only one

With Your love You rescued me
From my deep despair
I know I’m never alone
Because Your always there
You broke the chains of sin
When Your Son hung upon the cross
Your Spirit now lives within
To keep me from being lost

Your Spirit is now my guide
When I don’t know what to do
You are always by my side
To draw me close to You
It’s Your Word I do embrace
It helps me not to swerve
You lovingly provide grace
It’s not what I deserve

All these things You do
Although I don’t deserve
All you ask of me
Is a willingness to serve

You knew that I was flawed before my birth
Yet You sent Your Son to walk upon this earth

You knew the choices that I was going to make
Yet you provided grace allowing for an escape

You knew the lies that I was going to buy
Yet you sent Your Son in my place to die

You knew hurts that I was going to cause
Yet You sent Your Son to die upon the cross

You knew the people I was going to betray
Yet you provided love that showed me the way

You knew I was lonely and had no way out
You changed my heart and turned me about

You knew the abuse that I had to endure
Your Word alone offered me a cure

You knew I was lost not knowing what to do
You used my life to bring glory to You
