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

Our Savior was hung on a criminals cross

Dying for all, forgiving who’s lost

He was born by the Spirit, yet walked as a man

Walking in obedience, He completed God’s plan

He is the reconciliation between man and God

He is our redemption since man has been flawed

Let’s rejoice in our sorrow and rejoice in our pain

He came as our Savior, Forever He’ll reign

He is Alpha, Omega, the Beginning and End

After the ascension, His Spirit He did send

I stand in amazement, I stand in awe

He takes me as I am, with all of my flaws

I rejoice in sadness, I rejoice when in fear

I know I can call out, He draws me in near

I submit to His Lordship, I submit to my God

I’ll forever be His, He’ll forever be awed

I stand in His mercy, I’m saved by His grace

He is my strength to persevere in this race

He called me out of darkness, into the light

I answered His call, I walked away from my plight

He offered me freedom, He set me apart

It’s a new life He gives right from the start

I’m sealed by His Spirit, forever His child

All because of Jesus I have been reconciled

I hear voices what do they say

One says love and another says stray

If I love what must I do

Follow Gods heart and forever be true

If I stray where will I go

Down the wrong path, away from my hope

 

I have sin, it’s deep in my heart

I have Your Spirit, which is where I should start

When sin is my greatest desire

Then trusting the world is my greatest empire

It’s You that gives me direction

Thru Your Spirit I get my correction

 

Your love covers all my sin

And the battle that rages within

I know it’s you that I alone can trust

Faith in You for me is a must

When You died on Cavalry’s Tree

You rose from the grave to set me free

 

I know I can trust in Your Word

For it’s the Gospel Message I have heard

Your Blood freed me from the bondage of sin

Now it’s the abundant life that I live in

Lord, You provide hope in this life I live

Now service to You I freely give

It’s when I’m broken that I see You shining thru

You are my guide when I don’t know what to do

You are my anchor when I’ve drifted out to sea

Christ, You pull me back when I want to run and flee

It’s Your love that covers all my sin

Thankful for Christ’ Spirit who now comes to live within

When I am weary it’s You that gives me strength

That is if I don’t keep You at arms length

When in darkness You are my guiding light

You help me endure when tempted in this fight

You pick me up when I’m falling to the ground

In my sin You kept me from being drowned

It was Your Love that You nailed upon the cross

Thankful for grace, You died for all who’s lost

You are my refuge when I’m failing in this race

Thankful to Christ, You’re the only one that provides me grace

A Mountain Called Calvary

 

We know Jesus came from heaven for we’ll see Him face to face

It is His power that he gives us to run this very race

 

It’s all because of mercy, His grace He freely gives

It’s only thru the cross we learn how to live

 

His commands are a guiding force for us to obey

It is His path we walk and learn to not stray

 

His Truth is what frees us from our death and sin

His Spirit is who draws us then comes to live within

 

His grace He freely offers for all who want to partake

It is chains of unforgiveness that He wants to break

 

It’s our heart He wants to change from the inside out

It’s our faith wants to increase so we never have to doubt

 

Jesus is our teacher for He wants us to learn

That grace is a gift that we can never earn

 

Jesus paid the ransom by hanging on the tree

He hung on the mountain called Calvary

We come to the alter

Where God’s arms are open wide

He’s gifted us with love

Thru His sacrificial life

 

We come to the cross

Where He’s the source of our rest

He is our strength

When facing all of life’s test

 

It’s in His presence

That we all desire to be

We walk by the Spirit

We are forgiven and free

 

We come to the alter

Where His yoke is lite

It’s thru His blood

We have union with the Light

 

We come to the cross

For the source of life it brings

We will lift up our voice

With praises we will sing

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
