Great is Your Majesty

Everything He’s done for me
To set me free
Eternally
Makes me sing and shout His praise
I’ll lift His name
All my days

Jesus, Jesus
He’s given me such grace
Jesus, Jesus
I long to look on His face

Jesus, Jesus
What a redeemer is He
Jesus, Jesus
Great is His majesty

 

I’m Forever Grateful

I was shackled
Bound with chains
Heavy chains
They wrapped around me like a serpent
My mind was in a prison
A prison of sin
Of shame
Of doubt and sadness
I looed good on the outside
But these chains bound my spirit
My mind
My soul
My being
There seemed to be no escape
I could not loose the chains
I could not pick the lock that held them
I could not free myself
I was stuck in darkness
Solitude loomed over me
I sank deeper
And deeper
Into the depravity of my sin’
My thoughts
My actions
I felt surrounded by a force
Too strong for me to fight
It beat me down every day
I became weary
And depressed
I was ready to just give up

Then I met Jesus
I met the Savior
The Redeemer
I learned he died for me
For my sin
To take away my shame
And doubt
And guilt
He came to loose the chains that bound me
He came to fight my battle for me
He came to bring victory
All I had to do was call His name
Confess my sins
Repent of my ways
Put on His yoke
Make Him my Lord
And follow Him
The rest of my days
He would free me
He would fight for me
He would give me strength
And joy
And peace
He would guide me safely through life
He would teach me His ways
He would become my friend
Always with me
Always helping me

Jesus, I’m yours
I’, all yours
I trusted in you
And you set me free
Free from my shackles
Free from the chains of sin
You set me feet on solid ground
Turned my life around
Gave me all this by grace
A free gift
No charge
You just want me
All of me
Every thought
Every action
Every word
For your glory
I thank you Lord
For your mercy
And your grace
On a sinner such as I
I didn’t deserve any of it
‘Yet you loved me anyway
You sought me out
You pulled me out
I’m forever grateful
Forever grateful to you

I Listen

Silently
I wait for thee
In the morning
Before dawning
Stars aglow
Snow below
Air is cold
Wind is bold
I listen

Heart for you
Thoughts anew
Your voice I hear
In my ear
Silently
Quietly
You speak to me
These words of life
And sacrifice
I listen

Thank you Lord
For your words
For these psalms
That bring calm
Silently
Gracefully
You speak to me
Words that seek
To set us free
That we might be
Found in thee
Help me Lord
To listen
