Out Of Darkness Into The Light

Out of darkness and into the light

I was blind then You restored my sight

Enslaved in chains because my fear

Had no hope and was full of tears

Lost in bondage without a voice

Feeling alone without a choice

You are my rescue You are my aide

You broke my chains now my debt is paid

I was lost in darkness now I’m found

You picked me up when I was down

You gave me mercy when I deserved to die

I now have life and one more try

You gave me love that covered my sin

Pulled me out of the mess I was in

You loved me most when I was lost

You atoned for sin upon that cross

My debt is paid I’ve been set free

All because You died on Calvary

I jump for joy I sing this Praise

I’ll walk with Jesus in all my days

You healed my heart with Your grace

It’s Your Presence that I embrace

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

You are mighty, You are strong

You are here and never gone

 

When I am falling, I am raised

I will forever sing Your praise

 

When I am scared you hold my hand

Then lead me back to the promise land

 

When I run, You bring me back

You help me when I am attacked

 

When I stumble and I am falling

It is Your voice that I hear calling

 

When I’m lost You provide a way

Your Word says that I never have to stray

 

When I sin You are there to forgive

It’s You Lord that teaches me how to live

 

When I’m lost You come for me

All because You died on cavalries tree

 

When I finally surrender to God

He will heal me of my flaws

 

As I’m on my knees and pray

It’s You who promised a way

 

You are Mighty, You are Strong Lord

It’s You Lord who I forever long for

You are our Lord, You are our King
It’s praises to You that we want to sing
We bow in your presence, we kneel at Your cross
It’s Your message of grace that saves all whose lost
You are the light, You are the way
All who come to You Christ will be saved this very day
You are the well that never runs dry
All who drink of you now will never have to die
You are the banner that hung high on a hill
All who submit to You now will forever be filled
You are the bread that gives us new life
We are Your bride like a husbands new wife
You sent us Your Spirit to convict us of sin
Because of Your grace it’s our hearts that get cleansed
You are the Truth that offers us freedom
We change our old ways for we no longer need them
It is out with the old and in with the new
We give glory to God all because of You

I stand before You, even though I am flawed
I worship and praise you, for You are my God
You open my heart to let the Savior come in
You break all the chains and offer freedom from sin
You gave me salvation, You gave me a new start
You gave me freedom now I give you my heart
My body is the temple where the Spirit does live
You offer forgiveness, it’s grace You do give
So when I stumble and fall flat on my face
You cover my shame, You help me to continue this race
It’s Your conviction and direction that points the way
I stick close to Your Word, it helps me not stray
It’s Your Word and obedience that I must grasp
I’m defined by Your presence not by my past
I read and study, I follow Your Word
I share with others this gospel, it’s the message I’ve heard
It’s because of Your love that Christ died on the cross
It’s because of Your love that I’m no longer lost

We thought we were a bunch of nobodies

Who was loved by a special somebody

He enables us to love everybody

Loved by the Blood

 

We weren’t but a bunch of busy bodies

Whose love came through that special somebody

He empowers us to serve all bodies

Loved by the Blood

 

We now belong to just one body

Who hung from His own created tree

That Blood’s purpose when touching the ground

Was to reach you and me

Loved by the Blood

 

We love and praise God above

We are Loved by the Blood
