It’s the church that we are called to be

Because Christ died on Calvary’s tree

It was the lost He came to save

Death couldn’t hold Him in the grave

On the third day He rose to life

To conquer sin and strife

It was His message that was spread

From His Word is where it’s read

His commands we learn to obey

As we walk with Him each day

He came to redeem us all

From the curse of the fall

He will come in and change your heart

From there you will be set apart

We then have a new life to live

It’s our service we learn to give

The church is who we are called to be

Now this is the call for you and me

In brokenness that I can’t hide

It’s You Jesus that I confide

In my walk it’s Your strength I need

When I break Your heart, it’s Your blood I bleed

Higher than mine is Your ways

From Your Word I do not stray

In my weakness I need You

It’s Your Word that I hold on to

Faith through grace is what I need

On the Cross Christ did bleed

His blood is the sacrifice that atoned for sin

Will I call on Jesus with the mess I’m in

Jesus Christ is the only way

To see Holy God on that day

If you are in need of grace

Or strength to help you in this race

Call on Jesus , He’s our friend

He’ll walk with us till the end

He sent His Spirit to be our guide

He loves us all with arms stretched wide

When you are digging into life by your fingernails

You are grasping at the air like a windblown sail

You stop for a breath of air as you huff and puff

Your minds going crazy as you growl and gruff


Is it sin in your heart that you secretly hide

Down a slippery slope as you slosh and slide

You start to confess and breathe with a sigh

Your heart is relieved as Christ draws you nigh


But the devil is prowling as if he’s looking to kill

It’s your effectiveness that he wants to steal

So you cling to the cross with everything you have

Christ heals your wounds better than liniment and salve


But the devil’s still a prowling as if on a hunt

He lurks in the dark always trying to pull a stunt

He tries to fill your head full of lies that make you quake

It’s your joy that he keeps on trying to take


If he gets you going and causing you to doubt

He’ll have you hanging your head causing you to moan and pout

Thankfully Christ never leaves you all alone

It’s your heart that Gods Spirit makes His home


God’s Word is implanted in our heart

It’s how we lean on Jesus for a daily fresh start

He convicts our heart when we sin

With Jesus as my answer I can win


So if your answer is to tug and fight

Turn to Jesus, for He is Light

Our flaws is not how Christ sees us

Our answer is to be Raised With Jesus

When sin has a hold and its roots run deep

It grabs you by the scalp while your eyes just weep

It’s embedded in your life down to the core

It’s pulling at your heart pulling for more


When sin is in control and its spinning you all around

You’re buried to the neck in the filthy dirty ground

It’s causing you to lose what matters most in life

Filling your head full junk that causes nothing more than strife


When sin fills your head full of dirty filthy lies

It’s begging you not to stop, for give it one more try

Its aim is to seduce your soul and shred your heart to bits

As if grasping at your flesh with its greasy grimy mitts


It wants you to live in defeat and forget you’re a child of God

Sin shows you all your failures that point to that you’re flawed

But Jesus died for you on that ole rugged cross

He died so you no longer have to live like your lost

Grace is something
that can not be earned
A relationship with Christ
is one to be yearned
We have been called
from the beginning of time
To walk with the Lord
who is sublime
We are called
to turn away from our sin
Our strength comes from the Lord
His Spirit lives within
His love for the lost
cost Him His life
He hung on the cross
to bring us into the light
As we walk with our Lord
for the rest of our days
We lean on Him
in order to not stray
We are His bride
He calls us His church
He knocks at our door
to quicken our search
As He knocks at your door
will you invite Him to come in
He will offer forgiveness
for all your sin
For the wages of sin
is death, you must know
But as we walk with our Lord
we will continue to grow
If you are living in darkness
you can’t find your way
Respond to His calling
I implore you today
It’s His voice
that you hear speak
Calling you home
when you are weak
His voice is the one
that speaks to your heart
Turn from your old life
to get a new start

There’s a war going on
For man’s heart and soul
A devised evil plan
For it is satans goal
Once man was tempted
His nature then was flawed
He found himself naked
Then tried to hide from God
Now pride began the fall
It was a devised evil plan
It started with the serpent
Then he passed it on to man
The serpent tempted Eve
To eat from the tree of life
She passed it on to man
Then Adam blamed his wife
They had to leave the garden
To work the land to live
They had to raise the lambs
A sacrifice to give
Now God sent His Son
A message He must give
Repent from our sin
A new life we will live
As we turn from our sin
We learn to walk with God
It’s our own evil ways
That cause us to be flawed
Now Christ shed His Blood
To save you and me
He saved us from our death
By dying on a tree
Redemption came at a price
From the beginning of the fall
It was Gods Holy plan
For Christ paid it all

Oh my God, I need more of You
You give me life, I know this is true

If it wasn’t for You, I’d be lost in sin
Eternal death would have been my friend

You put Your Son up on a cross
You came for me where I was lost

It’s Your Son that gives me hope
With You I do more than cope

I was blind but now I see
It’s Your love that died for me

You gave me life to start a new
I am loved all because of You
