He called me out of the grave

From the sin in which I was enslaved

I’m now alive and free to live

All my sins He did forgive

He is my rock in which I stand

Now my life has a plan

My life has purpose as I live

A servants heart is what I give

Ask me how and this I say

He said, follow Me I know the way

I looked around, then counted the cost

I knew just then how I was lost

He said, on the cross I paid for sin

I knew right then the mess I was in

He changed my heart from inside out

He held me near when I was in doubt

He freed my soul from the devils grip

Now I’m free for the Lord to equip

Even though I am still flawed

Freed by Love from my God

I once was dead, now I’m saved

It was Christ who called me out of the grave

Tear Stained Shoes

 

I’ve got some regrets

Have made some mistakes

Been down a road

That does nothing but take

 

I’ve walked a few miles

In my tear stained shoes

With nothing but scars

My way I did loose

 

There’s wounds in my heart

Scars on my chest

I keep looking to God

To give me nothing but rest

 

It’s His grace He bestowed

His mercy I didn’t earn

I walk with Him now

It’s His presence I yearn

 

His peace He does give

My heart is now full

I feel the nudge from His Spirit

His love has a pull

 

In His ways that I walk

It’s His voice that I hear

Drawing me close

Drawing me near

Christ humbled Himself and became a man

He came with a message obeying God’s plan

He would bleed on the cross to save man’s soul

For this was said by the prophets of old

He came to die to set man free

On a cross that was meant for me

Death could not hold Him in the grave

It was for the lost and broken He came to save

He was raised to life on the third day

Ahead of us He prepared the way

He heals the sick, the lame and the lost

If you want to follow Jesus you must count the cost

He gave us His Spirit to be our guide

Our heart is where His Spirit resides

I used to be broken with a hole in my heart

Until I met Jesus, He gave me a new start

Christ paid the price, in full it was paid
He hung on a cross, then laid in a grave

He was mercilessly beaten for all to see
Then hung high on a hill, nailed to a tree

He was the ransom for all, our ransom for sin
And the rebellion that we live in

He conquered death, in three days He was raised
He gives us life and for that He is praised

He went to hell to set captives free
He did this for them so in heaven they’ll be

His mercy is endless, Grace He provides
He is the Word, in Him we will abide

When He ascended to heaven, He didn’t leave us alone
He gave us His Spirit, our heart is His home

He’s the Alpha and Omega, Beginning and End
He has captured my heart, now He lives within
