It was in the dead and dark of night

I was quaking in my spirit and nothing was right

I looked around me and nothing could I see

But I knew something was there, it was staring at me

Then I could see it’s beady eyes, looking all around

Looking to and fro, then up then down

It started to move, I was quaking in my skin

Was it in my mind, playing tricks within

In my mind I was trembling with fear

Was God around or was He even near

I cried out loud and dropped to my knees

Asking in a prayer if He could help me please

I knew not, what this was all about

Or who this is, was he big or stout

I heard this voice, gently speaking to me

He spoke to my heart, drawing me unto Thee

My heart began to change, transforming within

I started to read His Word and discovered it was my sin

I confessed my sin, forgiveness is what He gave

For He is true to His Word, He’s faithful to save

His mercy and grace was bestowed on me

All because He died on that tree

With fear and trembling is how I live

I gave Him my life, now service is what I give

He paid my ransom, my debt is now paid

The condition of my sentence is faithfully waved

His grace and mercy I could never earn

But the depth of His love is what I live to learn

I no longer live in fear or afraid in this fight

Jesus is my life, for Jesus is my Light

I take and take and take

In your skin I make you quake

I pose as the angel of light

With me you’ll do nothing but fight

You will fight to keep me around

As I turn your life upside down

I first come as your friend

Life with me never has to end

I’m your secret that will destroy

I will use you as my toy

They say curiosity killed the cat

You thought that I was phat

My aim was to destroy your life

To take your family and wife

All you have is what I took

I would even take your looks

Your dignity and pride were next

There was nothing I would reject

I caused you nothing but pain

On the just and unjust it will rain

I take and take and take

In your skin I make you shake

You quiver when I’m around

I turned your life upside down

What Am I

Blessed is the pure in heart

For we will see Jesus

 

Through His righteousness

Is the only way God see’s us

 

When we are blind and can not see

On a dead end path

 

Jesus is the only source

That saves us from God’s wrath

 

When we’re lost and have strayed away

It’s Jesus that’s our light

 

He guides us on a narrow path

He protects us with His might

 

When we have taken all we can

And have endured the test

 

We put our trust in sovereign God

We know that Jesus gives us rest

Oh my Lord, I’ve sinned again
What can I do, I can’t seem to win
I’m being tempted, it’s way too strong
I am weak, I am wrong
I know it comes as an attack
It’s like a monkey that’s on my back
It’s a thorn in my side
It’s sticking out, I can’t seem to hide
It’s the sin that drives me wild
I seem to forget that I’m Your child
I try to run but it pulls me in
Oh my Lord I can’t seem to win
You give me armor that I’m to don
It’s of no use unless I put it on
You gave Your Word that I’m to read
It does no good unless I head
Oh my Lord these words I say
Hear them now, to You I pray
It’s Your Word that is true
Oh my Lord draw me close to you
It’s Your Spirit that leads the way
Be my strength so I will not stray
Oh my Lord You are my guide
It’s Your Truth that I must abide
Oh my Lord You are the Light
You are my strength in this fight
You are strong where I am weak
A relationship with You is what I seek
Oh my Lord be my God
Make me pure where I am flawed
It’s Your Word that I believe is true
Help me now to turn back to You

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

God has called us out of darkness
And living our life in sin
We are called to be a chosen people
It’s His righteousness that we live in

We are called to be a royal priesthood
A people belonging to God
To abstain from sinful desires
To not live in the flesh that’s flawed

We are called to be a holy nation
Not living like the world
We are called to live separate
Than the world that’s coming unfurled

We are God’s special possession
That we might declare praises of Him
Again He called us out of darkness
That we might bring glory to Him

Once we were not a people
But now we belong to God
We have now received Gods mercy
To refrain from living like we’re flawed

1 Peter 2:10
9. But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, Gods special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. 10. Once you were not a people, but you are the people of God; once you had not received Gods mercy, but you now have received mercy.

OH MY GOD

Oh my God, why must I slander you name
I do it for the price, to hide my shame

Oh my God, why must I enjoy my sin
There’s no pleasure in the bondage that I’m living in

Oh my God, why must I turn from you this day
I think I’m having fun, must I do things my way

Oh my God, why must I walk away from you
I think I know better with the things I’ve got to do

Oh my God, I must call out to you
I need Your help to stop the things I do

Oh my God, will you forgive me of my sin
It’s your Spirit that comes and lives within

Oh my God, will you come live in my heart
It’s your death on the cross that gives me a new start

Oh my God, will you be my guiding light
It’s because of You that my fire’s burning bright

Oh my Lord, how I believe in you today
It’s Your Word that helps me walk in your ways

Oh my Lord, it’s you that helps me not to stray
It’s Your Spirit that is my GUIDE today
