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

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

I Believe

I believe in Jesus and

the gospel of grace

It’s the light in this world and

gives strength in this race

I believe he’ll change hearts and

free us these chains

Bring us thru tears and

storms when it rains

I believe in God’s mercy and

His unfailing love

How He’s always beside me and

His guidance is from love

I believe in Jesus and

He’s faithful to forgive

How He changed my heart and

points me in the right direction to live

I believe in God’s Word and

how His Truth changes lives

It points us to right choices

where each believer can thrive

I believe in Jesus and

His unending reign

My home is in heaven

where there’s no tears and no pain

This is the season for thanks we do give
Because grace from our Savior we get to live
He set a path before us when He counted the cost
Christ made a way for the sinner when He died on the cross

This is the season for grace that we don’t spare
It gives way to love and show that we care
He set a path before us when He counted the cost
Christ made a way for the sinner when he died for the lost

This is the season our mercy we must show
It comes from the gifts of the Spirit that we give as we grow
Christ set a path before us when He counted the cost
He made a way for the sinner when He died on the cross

Christ showed us the way that we must live
It’s our words and actions that shows that He lives
Christ set a path before us when He counted the cost
He made a way for the sinner when He died for the lost

To get love in this life
We have to start by seeking Christ
We ask Him to forgive our sin
Then His Spirit comes and lives within
We have to let Him change our heart
He will break our chains apart
We let His Spirit be our guide
His Word we will abide

To get joy in our walk
We have to do more than talk
We have to turn from our evil ways
Then walk with Him all our days
The Spirit convicts us of our sin
As we learn to walk with Him
We get to serve our fellow man
As we get used in Gods plan

It’s His peace we want to seek
As we learn to trust Him when we’re weak
Our faith gets tested in our trials
Tho’ we lean on Him all the while
It’s His love that pulls us through
When we’re lost and don’t know what to do
His peace comes when we trust
Although obedience is a must
Christ will never leave our side
Because He loves us both deep and wide

Judge not lest you be judged
Are the words of God who loves

Judge me not what you see
For I judge not what you be

For if you judge what I am
This judgement could be a sham

God’s Word tells us not to judge
This could cause to have a grudge

If I judge and hurt ones heart
How can I live set apart

God commands for all to love
If we do this we how can we judge

Has your heart been hurt so bad

That you just cry and weep

Tears show more than you’re sad

They makes you wail and weep

 

Your tears stream down

On your face

You want to wear a frown

 

The pain you must carry

You feel you must bear

It belongs to Him

You know you must share

 

The burden is heavy

His yoke is light

He wants to help you

He wants your fight

 

He will carry your burden

He carried His Cross

He came to redeem you

So no longer you will be lost
