Christ humbled Himself and became a man

With a message He came, obeying God’s plan

He would bleed on a tree to save our soul

This was said by the prophets of old

He came to die to set man free

He died for you, He died for me

He brought us His Word, He brought us grace

Christ gives us power to run in this race

He gives what we need to live a holy life

He’s our strength in temptation and in strife

I’ve tasted God’s goodness, I’ve tasted His ways

From His commands I never want to stray

Christ is my Savior, He is my Lord

He is my comfort when in discord

Christ changed my heart, for this I know

As I practice His ways there’s fruit that shows

Jesus is more than just a friend

I know He’ll be with me till the very end

I love my Jesus with all of my heart

I try to put Him first right from the start

There’s power in the blood, there’s power in the resurrection

If you submit to Jesus He will give you more than affection

He gives us love, He calls us His heir

I hope you will choose Jesus, This is my prayer

On the Cross Christ took my place
He died for me so I could run this race
His blood was shed to set me free
From sin and death this is what I believe
It’s in His Word I believe is true
He’s calling out to you know who
So don’t delay to respond
It is you He’s calling on
It is grace He alone provides
His mercy says you don’t have to die
All alone and apart from God
Who alone knows your every flaw
Here’s the message I hope you hear
I hope it comes across loud and clear
Upon that Cross Christ took your place
He died for you to give you grace
His blood was shed to set you free
From sin and death so
forever with Him you will be

One foot in front and one foot behind
I’m walking the fence going out of my mind
Limb by limb I climb up a tree
It’s out of the darkness that I try to see
But I’m blinded by pain and blinded by scars
It’s a stronghold that has me locked behind bars
I can’t seem to run and can’t seem to hide
I’ve got a fortress built with walls that are too high
You want to get in and I try to get out
I have voices in my head that just scream and shout
I sit in the corner with tear stained eyes
Looking for an outcome that’s forward and wise
I hear a message about Christ that opens my ears
It’s His message of love that’s drawing me near

It’s the gospel we’re called to live
Our sacrifice is what we give
Our testimony is how we walk
Our actions must do more than talk
It’s our life that we must show
How in Christ we walk and grow
How we grow and mature each day
We trust God and obey
We obey His Word and commands
So on Christ our Rock we stand
We can stand firm in this life
Even though satan throws us strife
We can still be filled with peace
Even though temptations never cease
Our identity comes from Christ
Even though satan tries to take us for a heist
Satan comes to steal
Our joy he wants to kill
It’s our walk that people see
So live how Christ set you free
It’s the gospel we are called to share
So do everything through prayer

Lord it’s to you my heart I give
Passion for You is how I want to live

You made a way to give grace a start
It’s Your grace that opened and changed my heart

Your mercy is what saved me from death
I’m grateful for each day You give me breath

It’s Your love that put Jesus on a cross
It’s Your plan to redeem and save the lost

You alone raised Jesus from the grave
For all who believe they will no longer be a slave

It is You who breaks my chains to sin
You left me a guide and He lives within

It’s Your Spirit that convicts me when I’m wrong
It’s Your Word that guides and makes me strong

Your wisdom is what I need to help me change
When I do it’s my life that gets rearranged

The gospel is what we’re called to share
Your Truth is how You show You care

Salvation comes only through Your Son
He is the Light and He is the only one

When you find yourself in a bind
Without a choice and left behind
You look around you don’t know what to do
You want to run but you’re stuck like glue
You’re without a plan you don’t know where to go
Your aim is high but your confidence is low
Still without a choice and no way out
You pull out your hair, scream and shout
You lift up your hands high in the air
Then drop to your knees low in despair
You’re full or tears running down your cheeks
You’ve been stuck in this place, for it seems like weeks
You have no place to run so you just want to hide
You are full of emotions and they all seem to collide
Then you hear the gospel and it warms your heart
For the first time in your life you have a place to start
You open your heart and let Christ come in
He offers salvation and freedom from sin
You confess your sin and He breaks your chains
He is your life’s blood that runs through your veins
As you change, you grow and you mature
He does a miracle in your heart your motives become pure
You can’t keep this a secret you must go and tell
You have to share the gospel so others can be spared from hell

I stand before You, even though I am flawed
I worship and praise you, for You are my God
You open my heart to let the Savior come in
You break all the chains and offer freedom from sin
You gave me salvation, You gave me a new start
You gave me freedom now I give you my heart
My body is the temple where the Spirit does live
You offer forgiveness, it’s grace You do give
So when I stumble and fall flat on my face
You cover my shame, You help me to continue this race
It’s Your conviction and direction that points the way
I stick close to Your Word, it helps me not stray
It’s Your Word and obedience that I must grasp
I’m defined by Your presence not by my past
I read and study, I follow Your Word
I share with others this gospel, it’s the message I’ve heard
It’s because of Your love that Christ died on the cross
It’s because of Your love that I’m no longer lost
