I know it’s You who can feel my pain

It’s in you alone that my life gains

I walk with You when life gets tough

Even tho my shell reveals I’m rough

In my brokenness when I am lost

I turn to Jesus and face the cross

You heal my heart from the scars

The battle wounds caused by wars

A struggle I have is in my mind

It tells me lies that has me blind

I try to walk down a narrow road

But all this crud has me slowed

I hear Your voice that draws me near

That gives me strength to persevere

When life is dark you are my Light

You are solid ground in this fight

It’s to You I come when I am broken

It is in You alone that I find hope in

In my brokenness I see your hand

That guides me in the Promise Land

Now I am saved from my evil ways

On Your path do not let me stay

I walk with You now that I am free

Thankful to Christ who died on that tree

There once was a man that walked this earth
He came from heaven through a virgin birth

He came to give a message that we all must hear
His voice isn’t loud but His message is clear

Repent and be saved, turn from your ways
Walk with Jesus for the rest of you days

Confess all your sins and forgiveness He will give
He will cleanse your heart and eternally you will live

As you invite Him in a change will be made
He will break your chains and you’ll no longer be slaves

His Spirit will come and live inside your heart
He will be your guide so turning from sin will be your start

As you walk with Him His message you will proclaim
You will extend His love so people will know His name

Oh how disappointed am I

When I disobey my God on High

His Spirit guides me in what not to do

It hurts to turn a blind eye to

The conviction of sin in my heart

Repentance where do I start

By confessing and turning from sin

How hard in the world we live in

Is it hard to abstain from worldly desires

When to serve the Lord my priority is higher

The guilt of sin seems way too strong

Only because my choices have all been wrong

Lord, I pray that you please change my heart

Because Your Grace I’ve been given me a new start
