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 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

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

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
