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

Freed From The Chains

You are the Truth
That sets men free
You are the Word
That was nailed to the tree

I was broken and flawed
All bound in chains
With scars thru my heart
I had nothing but pain

My eyes were soaked
With nothing but tears
My heart was crying out
I was shaking with fear

I was lost in the dark
Couldn’t find a way out
The voices in my head
Wanted to scream and shout

I was tied to my sin
While in captivity
Until I met that man
That was nailed to that tree

On a dead-end road
He knew I was lost
He told me right then
That’s why He died on the cross

He met me right there
Right where I was at
I was in the middle of sin
I knew I was trapped

He reached for my hand
To give me a hand up
He gave me living water
He said drink from this cup

He said walk this way
Go and sin no more
That was the day
That Christ knocked at my door

Lord, it’s my struggles

I lift up to you today

Forgiveness of my sin

is what I ask when I pray

A multitude of sin

is covered by Your love

You are my pardon

sent from heaven above

You called me out of darkness

into the light

My strength comes from You

as I persevere in this fight

When I’m falling down

I reach up for Your hand

You pick me up

then guide me back to the promise land

Oh, how I love

to hear Your still calm voice

It stops the chatter

that’s nothing but noise

I remember when I was lost

You spoke to my heart

You did more than clean me up

You gave me a brand new start

The old is life is gone

I live the new life today

I dig into Your Word

it helps me not to stray

Seal me with Your Spirit

forever be my guide

You’ll always draw me close

You’ll never leave my side

It was God who met me

in the middle of my sin

With a message to my heart

that was buried within

With all the pain and confusion

I wanted to die

I was lonely inside

no more tears could I cry

With cuts and bruises

all thru my dreary soul

To the depths of the earth

I thought I would go

Now I wanted to run

I wanted to hide

I thought I was alone

with no one by my side

The air got still

I heard a calm voice

All the chatter in my head

was nothing but noise

The noise got quiet

my heart began to race

With arms stretched wide

He extended me grace

He died on the cross

to save this dreary soul

To give me a new life

so my Savior I will know

A relationship with Christ

are what God desires

Obedience to His Word

I want to aspire

Forgiveness of sin

is the message I have heard

I get this message

from Studying His Word

Now if you are lost

can’t seem to find your way

Stop what you are doing

then begin to pray

Ask for Jesus

to come into your heart

To give you a new life

to give you a new start

Ask for His peace

to come rest in your soul

So, the depths of the earth

you never have to go

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
