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

Christ humbled Himself and became a man

With a message He came, obeying God’s plan

He would bleed on a tree to save our soul

This was said by the prophets of old

He came to die to set man free

He died for you, He died for me

He brought us His Word, He brought us grace

Christ gives us power to run in this race

He gives what we need to live a holy life

He’s our strength in temptation and in strife

I’ve tasted God’s goodness, I’ve tasted His ways

From His commands I never want to stray

Christ is my Savior, He is my Lord

He is my comfort when in discord

Christ changed my heart, for this I know

As I practice His ways there’s fruit that shows

Jesus is more than just a friend

I know He’ll be with me till the very end

I love my Jesus with all of my heart

I try to put Him first right from the start

There’s power in the blood, there’s power in the resurrection

If you submit to Jesus He will give you more than affection

He gives us love, He calls us His heir

I hope you will choose Jesus, This is my prayer

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.

I awoke one morning with pain in my heart

Trying to find words is a hard start

I describe the pain as one big hole

Empty was I with an ache in my soul

I describe the ache with one big sigh

Temptation set in and I wanted to get high

My mouth began to water, I got a taste in my mouth

My mind began to wonder and my thoughts went south

I start thinking about back in the day

How I started using drugs and lost my own way

My soul became empty and broken was I

My thoughts were churning how I wanted to die

I needed a fix and I needed it right then

Broken was I and I thought it was the end

I rolled onto to the floor and on to my knees

I said a quick prayer, Lord will You please

I heard a soft voice whisper in my ear

Come to me child I’ll draw you near

That was the day my life began to change

I found a Savior in Christ who no longer was strange

I gave Him my life and submitted to His ways

With the strength of His Spirit, I don’t have to stray

I call Him my friend, I call Him my Lord

I stay in His Word to sharpen my Sword

He led me with His Spirit and filled that hole

I am no longer empty I gave Him my soul

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

Are you lost and broken,

And can’t find your way

 

Have no place to live

Therefore you stray

 

Are you thirsty and hungry

With nothing to eat

 

Cold in the winter

With no shoes on your feet

 

Have you lost your cloak

With no shirt on your back

 

Feel all alone

Running from satans attack

 

Are you broken and lost

With no place to go

 

Turn to the Lord

It’s His way He’ll show

 

He’ll guide you and keep you

He’ll show you the way

 

He will teach you to be humble

He will teach you to pray

 

He will draw you in close

He will draw you from afar

 

He will teach through His Word

He will heal all your scars

 

He is calling you out of darkness

And into the light

 

He wants no one to be lost

He gives Eternal Life

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
