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

When will this paranoia come to an end
I feel like a child all over again

All the abuse I endured as a child
Helped me decide to live like I was wild

As I grew older it was hard to mature
I sought sin and drugs as to an end to a cure

Sin was the way I hid my disgrace
Secrets and shame was but only a face

I had no remorse my friend was my guilt
Lies and deceit was what was being built

Until that day when I wanted to die
It was all I could do to stop believing the lies

I was all alone a lost sheep in the crowd
Hiding behind fear Christ’s voice I heard loud

He told me to drop all the guilt and the shame
Run into His arms and believe in His Name

To believe in His Name is that what I have to do
Believe He’s the Son of God for this I know is true

Now I have a family I belong to the Way
In His Loving arms is where I want to stay

He guides me and protects me He is my God
He is my Healer even though I am flawed

Even though I’m flawed I run into His Arms
He is my Refuge even when I’m harmed

Christ is my Lord I love Him more each day
It’s all because He loved me and showed me the way

Do you have a refuge
When times are going rough
Who will be your rescue
When you’re all alone or feeling gruff

Who will be your refuge
When you’re living in despair
Do you have a rescue
When you’re pulling out your hair

Do you have a refuge
When sin’s nipping at your heels
Who will be your rescue
When you haven’t got a meal

Who will be your refuge
When life is full of pain
Who will be your rescue
When your tears turn in to rain

Christ will be your refuge
When life just seems too tough
Christ will be your rescue
When you flat out had enough
