I Commit My Soul To You

Lord I commit my soul to You

It’s thru You love that carries me thru

If I die before I wake

I pray my Lord my soul You take

As You give me Your very best

I know I have to endure the tests

It’s my life I offer You

Help me to not live in eskew

If you give me just one more day

I vow to live and follow Your ways

As I enter into rest tonight

I pray you watch over me this night

I’m learning Father to follow love

Thankful that You’re interceding from above

Your not just Savior, Your my Guide

It’s Your love that runs deep and wide

It’s Your presence I stand in Awe

All because you love me God

The Son Set Me Free

It’s out of darkness that I’ve been called

Into a righteousness that has never been stalled

My sins have been paid on that cross

Christ came to save me when I was lost

He conquered death on the third day

He showed me love and how to obey

In the beginning was the Word

This same gospel message I have heard

God is Alpha, Omega, Beginning and End

As a deposit, His Spirit was sent

I now have conviction in my heart

I have Christ’s forgiveness right from the start

God wants me to be still and know He is God

Even tho the devil wants to show I’m flawed

I’m created in the image of my God

To walk in His freedom and stand in His awe

To those the Son frees are free indeed

On account of the cross where Jesus did bleed

Know the Lord and He will know you

Obey His Word and know that He’s true

He’s faithful and kind for this I know

Walk in His ways and His Truth will show

Draw to the Lord and He will draw you in

He died on the cross to forgive all your sin

He conquered death and rose from the grave

He obeyed God so your soul He will save

Give Him your life and submit to His will

Your life will have joy that’s more than a thrill

He will give you His Spirit and guide your way

From His path you will never have to stray

Call out to God and He will give you His hand

He will free you from bondage so you can enter the land

He knows your struggles that hold you back

He’ll hold you close when under attack

When you want to hide behind a wall of fear

He’ll hold you in close and dry every tear

He will forever be your guiding light

By removing the scales to give you His sight

Now ask Him for strength to run this very race

Then bring Him your burdens in exchange for His grace

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

It was is in the wee hours of a star lit night

Wise men were guided by a star so bright

They were following what the prophets foretold

Bringing with them myrrh, frankincense, and gold

They were gifts for the new born king

The child of which the angels did sing

Conceived by God’s Spirit not by a man

Born of a virgin for this was God’s plan

Sent from God this child sublime

Redemption came from this perfect paradigm

This child came with a message that He must tell

His message of redemption that saves us from hell

This message of redemption we all must hear

Oh Holy Spirit come open our ears

Open our hearts to receive God’s Word

The message of Christ is the message we heard

The Son of God is King at birth

His message is told throughout the earth

If you’re in need of hope on Christmas this year

It’s the message of Christ I pray that you hear

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

It’s God’s love we’re called to display

Our walk is how we show it from day to day

Our life is to show His amazing grace

It’s not about how fast we run this race

We’re called to be kind and love everyone

Our life is to reflect how grace was won

It’s all about how God showed His love for man

To put Christ on a cross was God’s plan

It was the only way for man to be redeemed

Because we won’t stop turning our back on God it seems

The cross is God’s way to show His love

After the cross Christ ascended to heaven above

Then He sent His Spirit to be our guiding light

He helps us obey His commands in this fight

His Spirit convicts us of our sin

Then helps us walk out of the mess we’re in

He forgives our sin as we confess

He calms our anxiety and our stress

Christ will then transform and cleanse our heart

From then from the world we will be set apart

As we read His Word our minds get renewed

Which changes our whole attitude

Now we want to live and serve our God

Who loves us even though we’re flawed
