Lord, when I’m weary and broken down

Can’t pick my frown up off the ground

It’s Your love that You alone provide

So in my shame I no longer hide

 

When the world has me breathing hard

My character has then been charred

It is Your mercy that provides me grace

So I then can continue in this race

 

When I break down and give in to sin

Then rebel against the Spirit within

I get stuck and lost in pride

But Lord You never leave my side

 

I’m amazed and awed by You

How Your Word is always true

Even tho I wander and stray

You still mold me just like clay

 

It’s Your character You want to perfect

My ideas I still try to inject

But You Lord prune my ways

So on Your path I’ll always stay

 

When my scars are shining thru

And my flaws stick like glue

You freed me from my chains

So I no longer have to strain

 

It’s Your love You hung on that tree

Then died and rose for me

To free me from this fight

Then be my guiding Light

Tear Stained Shoes

 

I’ve got some regrets

Have made some mistakes

Been down a road

That does nothing but take

 

I’ve walked a few miles

In my tear stained shoes

With nothing but scars

My way I did loose

 

There’s wounds in my heart

Scars on my chest

I keep looking to God

To give me nothing but rest

 

It’s His grace He bestowed

His mercy I didn’t earn

I walk with Him now

It’s His presence I yearn

 

His peace He does give

My heart is now full

I feel the nudge from His Spirit

His love has a pull

 

In His ways that I walk

It’s His voice that I hear

Drawing me close

Drawing me near

My thoughts are life is too hard
Why is life so darn tough
I cry when I get bruises
I whine when I get scuffed

I know a man that suffered
More than you or I
He was condemned to death on a cross
Do you know the reason why

Upon His own back
He took the worlds sin
To give us a new life
So in His ways we walk in

He died upon that cross
The skies turned to black
All who receives His grace
There is no turning back
