I hear voices what do they say

One says love and another says stray

If I love what must I do

Follow Gods heart and forever be true

If I stray where will I go

Down the wrong path, away from my hope

 

I have sin, it’s deep in my heart

I have Your Spirit, which is where I should start

When sin is my greatest desire

Then trusting the world is my greatest empire

It’s You that gives me direction

Thru Your Spirit I get my correction

 

Your love covers all my sin

And the battle that rages within

I know it’s you that I alone can trust

Faith in You for me is a must

When You died on Cavalry’s Tree

You rose from the grave to set me free

 

I know I can trust in Your Word

For it’s the Gospel Message I have heard

Your Blood freed me from the bondage of sin

Now it’s the abundant life that I live in

Lord, You provide hope in this life I live

Now service to You I freely give

God has called us out of darkness
And living our life in sin
We are called to be a chosen people
It’s His righteousness that we live in

We are called to be a royal priesthood
A people belonging to God
To abstain from sinful desires
To not live in the flesh that’s flawed

We are called to be a holy nation
Not living like the world
We are called to live separate
Than the world that’s coming unfurled

We are God’s special possession
That we might declare praises of Him
Again He called us out of darkness
That we might bring glory to Him

Once we were not a people
But now we belong to God
We have now received Gods mercy
To refrain from living like we’re flawed

1 Peter 2:10
9. But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, Gods special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. 10. Once you were not a people, but you are the people of God; once you had not received Gods mercy, but you now have received mercy.

Living in a world that’s broken
It’s through Your Word that’s spoken
It’s You Who I Find Hope In

When I try to hide my pain
And my tears fall like rain
It’s You Who I Find Hope In

Living in a world that’s fallen
It’s your voice that I hear calling
It’s You Who I Find Hope In

When I am lost in shame
And have only me to blame
It’s You Who I Find Hope In

Living in a world that lost it’s way
From your Word I do not sway
It’s You Who I Find Hope In

When I find I’m lost in doubt
I pull my hair and want to shout
It’s You Who I Find Hope In

Living in a world that does not care
It’s your Word I’m called to share
It’s You Who I Find Hope In

When I find I’m lost in sin
It’s your forgiveness that draws me in
It’s Only You Who I Find Hope In
