Sin had a debt that had to be paid in full

So that you can have life, oh what a jewel

 

Christ paid the debt of all that was due

There is nothing required of me or of you

 

There is nothing you can add to His unfailing grace

Christ’ gave us all that we need for this race

 

Mercy and grace is provided by God

Man can’t do a thing all because he’s flawed

 

No amount of works can take the place of grace

We have to put trust in Christ, grace come thru faith

 

I hope that you know there’s a call on your life

Put your trust in God and reach out to Christ

 

God put Christ on the cross so you can have His grace

It’s the gift of God, will you join us in this race

 

You don’t have to wear no fancy clothes or a shiny hat

Put your faith in Christ, He’ll meet you were you’re at

When you see storms coming round

Reach for Christ, He can be found

 

When the winds come blowing thru

Christ our Rock will hold you true

 

When temptation seems too strong

Stand on the Word you can’t go wrong

 

When the devil has you down

Reach for Christ, He’s your Solid Ground

 

When sin has you in it’s claws

You can find strength at the cross

 

When life just has you beat

Lay your burdens at Christ’ feet

 

Jesus will meet you where you are

He will never be afar

 

Jesus is the answer with what you do

He will always be there for you

It’s God’s love we’re called to display

Our walk is how we show it from day to day

Our life is to show His amazing grace

It’s not about how fast we run this race

We’re called to be kind and love everyone

Our life is to reflect how grace was won

It’s all about how God showed His love for man

To put Christ on a cross was God’s plan

It was the only way for man to be redeemed

Because we won’t stop turning our back on God it seems

The cross is God’s way to show His love

After the cross Christ ascended to heaven above

Then He sent His Spirit to be our guiding light

He helps us obey His commands in this fight

His Spirit convicts us of our sin

Then helps us walk out of the mess we’re in

He forgives our sin as we confess

He calms our anxiety and our stress

Christ will then transform and cleanse our heart

From then from the world we will be set apart

As we read His Word our minds get renewed

Which changes our whole attitude

Now we want to live and serve our God

Who loves us even though we’re flawed

He alone chose to die for me

When we nailed Him on that Calvary’s tree

It was a decision that God had made

Jesus was the man who obeyed

He walked this earth for thirty three years

He paid the price for all of our fears

Now sin and pleasure come with a price

Who’s counting the cost it never ends nice

The price for sin is death this I know

You must die to yourself and let the change show

When I say die I mean turn from your sin

This is a change that God can only do from within

Christ reaches in and changes your heart

Regenerates your life to give you a new start

Forgiveness of sin is what we desire

As we walk with our God His ways we aspire

There’s nothing in this world that I can hide

Although my feelings are lost and stuck deep down inside

They try and surface, I refuse to let them show

I keep on running so they never ever grow

It is fear that wants to shine

But I cover up with I am fine

Next is hurt, it wants to come out with a blast

I try to hide it so you’ll never ever see my past

Then out comes shame, oh how I can never let you see

All the things that are locked deep down inside of me

Oh its worry that tries to raise its ugly head

All’s I can say is nough said

I try to hide behind oh how I am tough

Will I ever shut my mouth, cause I’ve said enough

They keep coming out, will they ever stop

It’s like a shook bottle spewing out the top

You never intended for me to have to hide

All the abuse and things locked deep down inside

It was You on the Cross who died for me

Your Blood was spilled to set me free

You set me free so now, for You, I can live

It’s to You, my heart, I want to give

You saved me from the things I no longer have to hide

All because Your Spirit came to live inside

You are my strength, You are my guide

It is You that is forever by my side

The wind is blowing strong and fierce

Could this be a sign of how Gods Word can pierce

It penetrates the heart both deep and wide

The conviction reaches my hearts insides

As it reaches depths unknown to me

BAM!! Snaps a chain Christ sets me free

One by one strongholds break

In their skin demons quake

God’s Word is what must be spoken

To all who are lost and all who are broken

It’s my life I know must change

My motives are what needs rearranged

As I put God’s Word inside

It’s my sin I no longer can hide

As I put my trust in God

I lean on Christ not my flaws

So open your heart, open your ears

It’s the message of Christ I pray that you hear

I pray that His Word will penetrate your heart

So In Christ you’ll have a new start

Christ died up on the Cross

Yes He died for you the lost

You might not be lost but may be broken

It is in Christ who we find hope in

He died for you and was raised to life

He conquered the grave , He can conquer strife

It is by His Blood we are set free

This is why Christ hung on a tree

So if you are in need of hope in some way

I hope you find freedom In Christ on this day

We are Chosen, we are Called, we are One
We are heirs with God’s only Son

Christ paid the price for us all
In your heart will you answer God’s call

God wants you to live a life that is free
So forever with Him you will be

It was Christ who died upon the cross
He died to save all who are lost

Are you in bondage to some kind of sin
Then let Christ free you from within

Are you a slave to some kind of hurt
Is your heart open to convert

Are you in pain, tired or lost
Bring all your flaws to the cross

Christ is the only one that can set you free
So forever with Him you will be

Romans 10:9
If you confess with your mouth Jesus is Lord
Believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead
Then you will be saved
