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

I open my heart, my burdens I share
You really listen, You really care

I give you my best, I give you my all
You are there to pick me up when I fall

When I get scared and I’m really lost
You are the one there to help me count the cost

Who’ll be my friend, who’ll be my guide
You’ll be the one to never leave my side

Your Word I do read, I try to obey
I try to listen for Your voice everyday

You give me Your love, You me give Your grace
You know I need help to stand firm in this race

Your mercy I have, it’s not without armor I wear
You give me the courage to stand boldly without fear

I can stand in this battle, I can stand in this fight
It’s thru Your strength I stand, I trust in Your might

When I’m down in despair, I reach for Your hand
It’s in You Christ that I stand
