I’m a child of the One True King

When I think of Jesus I do nothing but sing


It’s in my heart that I praise His Name

Because of His grace He covers my shame


My sin is covered because of His Love

My life isn’t here it’s in heaven above


I’m bought with a price the price of the cross

He came to find me when I was lost


My life isn’t mine it belongs to Him now

I give Him my word for this is my vow


It’s in His ways that I learn to walk

How precious is His Blood even when I balk


I follow Him now I must count the cost

It’s freedom I find when I kneel at the cross


Christ is my refuge in His Word I must hide

He carries my burdens as I walk by His side

It’s the church that we are called to be

Because Christ died on Calvary’s tree

It was the lost He came to save

Death couldn’t hold Him in the grave

On the third day He rose to life

To conquer sin and strife

It was His message that was spread

From His Word is where it’s read

His commands we learn to obey

As we walk with Him each day

He came to redeem us all

From the curse of the fall

He will come in and change your heart

From there you will be set apart

We then have a new life to live

It’s our service we learn to give

The church is who we are called to be

Now this is the call for you and me

In brokenness that I can’t hide

It’s You Jesus that I confide

In my walk it’s Your strength I need

When I break Your heart, it’s Your blood I bleed

Higher than mine is Your ways

From Your Word I do not stray

In my weakness I need You

It’s Your Word that I hold on to

Faith through grace is what I need

On the Cross Christ did bleed

His blood is the sacrifice that atoned for sin

Will I call on Jesus with the mess I’m in

Jesus Christ is the only way

To see Holy God on that day

If you are in need of grace

Or strength to help you in this race

Call on Jesus , He’s our friend

He’ll walk with us till the end

He sent His Spirit to be our guide

He loves us all with arms stretched wide

Life is like show and tell

Since the beginning when man fell

We show the world how we beat those odds

How we walked away from all them gods

Our life is like how we walk

More than the way we sow our talk

The way we talk is how we live

With strength from our Savior

grace we give

Our walk is meant to please our God

With Truth from His Word we are awed

With perseverance we remain steadfast

With grace from our Savior we will last

In the end we will receive a crown

In a place where there will be no frowns

Heaven is a place where there will be no tears

We will not have to hide or stand in fear

We will be giving our Lord all our praise

On that day the church he will raise

The wind is blowing strong and fierce

Could this be a sign of how Gods Word can pierce

It penetrates the heart both deep and wide

The conviction reaches my hearts insides

As it reaches depths unknown to me

BAM!! Snaps a chain Christ sets me free

One by one strongholds break

In their skin demons quake

God’s Word is what must be spoken

To all who are lost and all who are broken

It’s my life I know must change

My motives are what needs rearranged

As I put God’s Word inside

It’s my sin I no longer can hide

As I put my trust in God

I lean on Christ not my flaws

So open your heart, open your ears

It’s the message of Christ I pray that you hear

I pray that His Word will penetrate your heart

So In Christ you’ll have a new start

Grace is something
that can not be earned
A relationship with Christ
is one to be yearned
We have been called
from the beginning of time
To walk with the Lord
who is sublime
We are called
to turn away from our sin
Our strength comes from the Lord
His Spirit lives within
His love for the lost
cost Him His life
He hung on the cross
to bring us into the light
As we walk with our Lord
for the rest of our days
We lean on Him
in order to not stray
We are His bride
He calls us His church
He knocks at our door
to quicken our search
As He knocks at your door
will you invite Him to come in
He will offer forgiveness
for all your sin
For the wages of sin
is death, you must know
But as we walk with our Lord
we will continue to grow
If you are living in darkness
you can’t find your way
Respond to His calling
I implore you today
It’s His voice
that you hear speak
Calling you home
when you are weak
His voice is the one
that speaks to your heart
Turn from your old life
to get a new start

Christ broke my chains He set me free
My Savior died on Calvary
He ransomed me He paid my debt
The gates of hell is where we met

When Christ died He freed my soul
He freed my soul to make me whole
Now I’m free I can truly live
That’s because my life I give

When he died day turned to night
He died for me so I wouldn’t lose this fight
As a prisoner I was lost in sin
Until the God’s Spirit drew me in

Now the Spirit is my guide
His conviction I abide
A new creation is what I am
All because the suffering lamb
