Christ freed me from the bondage of sin

Oh my, what a mess I was in

My freedom came with a price

He died to give me new life

This new life consists of His ways

In which my aim is to not stray

He gave me His Spirit as a guide

His conviction is what I want to abide

I confess my sin to my Lord

My heart is where His Word is stored

There’s nothing I can do to earn grace

Nor strength to run in this race

Christ is the one true God

He gives healing where I am flawed

Worthy is the Lamb who was slain

Christ died to break all my chains

Oh my, how I used to be lost

I’m now thankful that Christ died on the cross

He was raised to life on the third day

To give me a life worth living today

Let’s fix our eyes upon Jesus

The author of our faith

Through love is how He sees us

To obey Him is the way

Let’s fix our eyes upon Jesus

A call on our life He placed

The cross is how He freed us

We respond to His call in faith

Let’s fix our eyes upon Jesus

His grace we could never earn

He said He would never leave us

Through trials is how we learn

Let’s fix our eyes upon Jesus

Our ways we must count the cost

His love is what frees us

When He died upon the cross

Let’s fix our eyes upon Jesus

His ways we must learn to obey

His love is how He sees us

When we trust Him all the way

Hebrews 12:1-2

Therefore let us also, seeing we are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses,

lay aside every weight, and sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with

patience the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus the author and perfecter

of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising

shame, and hath sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Lord I will not be shaken

Even tho in my boots I am quaking

It is You that I find hope in

Even tho I am broken

Lord I will not be moved

Even tho satan is smooth

You are the rock in which I stand

As long as I reach up for Your hand

You will never lead me astray

For this Your Word does say

I will never have to worry or fear

Because You will draw me near

Your arms are always open wide

You said You’d never leave my side

The same Spirit that rose Christ from the grave

Is the same Spirit that leads me today

Lord you are my strength

As long as I don’t keep You at arms length

You are a promise from God

In You, forever I will be Awed

The King of Israel is born

Unto a world that is sinful and torn

He came for Israel’s lost sheep

But their old ways they’d rather keep

Many miracles He did perform

The Pharisees treated Him with scorn

He healed the sick and the lame

The blind got to see without shame

He had love for all that were lost

His love got Him hung on a cross

Or was it sin that put Him upon that tree

The broken He came to set free

He rose from the grave on the third day

It’s to Him we are thankful we pray

The world is still broken and lost

I am thankful that He hung on that cross

He still comes for all that are broken

His love is what we find hope in

It’s the gospel we’re called to live
Our sacrifice is what we give
Our testimony is how we walk
Our actions must do more than talk
It’s our life that we must show
How in Christ we walk and grow
How we grow and mature each day
We trust God and obey
We obey His Word and commands
So on Christ our Rock we stand
We can stand firm in this life
Even though satan throws us strife
We can still be filled with peace
Even though temptations never cease
Our identity comes from Christ
Even though satan tries to take us for a heist
Satan comes to steal
Our joy he wants to kill
It’s our walk that people see
So live how Christ set you free
It’s the gospel we are called to share
So do everything through prayer

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
