I didn’t know that I was lost. I always thought I was alright My life made sense to me. I was enjoying life Then I looked all around and I saw misery and pain I wondered to myself, how can this old world change? I didn’t realize it had to start with me If I didn’t see my sin I could not be set free That’s when I picked up the book. His words reached to my soul I saw my wretchedness in all the stories told That’s when I knew I had no excuse I fell on my knees and cried “Jesus save me” Then He called my name and He raised me up To stand with Him on solid ground I am not the same. I have been born again There is a new song on my lips since He called my name Now there’s heavenly home waiting ahead for me My life still has its pains but I have joy and peace There is no substitute for His amazing grace You too can find new life iIf you kneel down and pray Then you will know His love in your soul Pardon you’ll see when you are set free When He calls your name, He will raise you up To stand with Him on solid ground You will not feel the same. You will be born again A new song will rise in you when He calls your name Jesus calls you out of darkness. Jesus calls you out of pain Jesus calls you out of bondage. Jesus calls you out of shame Jesus calls you into freedom. Jesus calls you into love Jesus calls you into joy and peace that come from above
In the still of the night hear the bullfrogs As they fill the night air with their cries They sit by the side of their dwelling Daring someone to catch them alive In the still of the night see the stars shine Looking upward their glory I see The light that they give travels onward My wonder it will never cease In the still of the night feel the cool breeze As it whisks away all of the heat I look forward to that brisk feeling From the top of my head to my feet In the still of the night God is speaking Through the sounds, sights and feelings I have There is no mistaking His presence As I take in the cool night air I hope that he always comes calling As I walk by the wayside each day If I open my ears and I listen I the still of the night He is there
Are you there? Do you hear me? As I quietly call your name. Are you there? Do you hear me? My prayer is still the same. I want to know you more I want to feel your touch I want to hear your voice Do you hear mine? Are you there? Do you see me? As I go through trials of life. Are you there? Do you see me? When my life is full of strife. I want to know you more I want to feel your touch I want to hear your voice Do you hear mine? Out of the silence I hear your voice - Gently it speaks to my soul "I am here I hear your voice I will answer in my time I am here I see your life My help is near you all the time Do not fear Do not worry I will never leave your side."
When I hear Jesus calling, I just listen To hear what He will say to me today I know that His kind words will bring fulfillment And will help me as I follow in His way There is not a time that Jesus is not speaking His voice is soft and gentle every time He is hoping that you'll train your ear to listen As He speaks to you in words of truth and life Not in the fire Not in the wind Not in the earthquake does He call my name But when we're still When we're ready to hear His still small voice will be loud and clear Jesus is waiting for your ears to hear His words are there if you'll just lend an ear Be still and know that He's Lord of all His voice will come and settle your storm CHORUS BRIDGE His words bring peace His words bring joy His words bring healing Deliverance is yours His words bring hope His words bring love His words will guide When you listen real close CHORUS
I've never felt so much loneliness When peace and joy seemed so far away My heart is restless sitting in this place I am broken and afraid I’ve lost my way I try to stand but feel the weight of fear I fall down on my knees in deep disgrace I feel the tears well up in my eyes My words come slowly as I start to pray CHORUS Lord I need you. Lord I’m desperate Lord come quickly and mend my heart Lord I need you more than ever Come Lord Jesus. Please come now I hear Him whisper gently in my ear My child I have always been right here Just call my name and I will come to you In times of desperation I am yours CHORUS BRIDGE He is always near. He is always near. He is always near. Right by my side CHORUS
Arise out of your slumber Awake out of your sleep The God of all creation Calls to me. Calls to me Do not give in to temptation Do not follow your fear The plans I have for you Are coming near. Coming near You are my child forever You are my hearts delight I am the God of heaven Open up your heart And take flight Nothing can stop you. Nothing can harm you Nothing can steal your joy Nothing to worry. Nothing to fear Only my love forever My love forever
Will you walk with me today? Will you talk with me today? Will you listen and hear the words I will speak? Will you spend just a moment with me? Will you pray for a friend today? Will you help out a stranger in need? Will you speak words of faith to a soul who’s in doubt? Will you be what I want you to be? I have given you this day Every minute is a gift of grace I pray you don’t waste it But please make the most of it Follow my will today Will you walk in my way, not yours? Will you speak my words, not yours? Will you take all your thoughts captive to me? Will you truly be set free? Every breath you breathe is from me Everything you see is from me Make the most of this day by being a friend Finding and meeting their needs I truly believe that every day God gives us opportunity to minister to someone, and often we don’t recognize that opening when it comes. When a person starts talking to you and tells you that there is a problem in their life, do you take time right then and there to pray? I have a habit of saying that I will pray for them ,but don’t always take the time to pray while I am with them. While Jesus was on this earth, the bible is very clear that He prayed for everyone that came to Him, and they were all healed. Now, I am obviously not Jesus, but I believe if I walked in this kind of faith, more people would see the healing power of God. Not because I am praying, but because I extended faith to them so they could believe. The most precious gift we have is our time! We must utilize it more for Him and less for ourselves. We all have daily tasks that take up precious minutes in our day. But taking a minute or two to pray with someone at the time we are with them should be a flexibility we will have. May we all take this precious gift and share it with others. We can change the world one person at a time! James 5:16b King James Version The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
The Lord said I am free Why do I walk in bondage? The Lord said I am healed Why do I walk in sickness and pain? The Lord said I am blessed Why do I walk in poverty? The Lord said I am saved Why do I walk defeated? The Lord said I have faith Why do I walk in doubt? The Lord said I have peace Why do I walk in turmoil? The Lord said I have joy Why do I walk in sorrow? The Lord said I have light Why do I walk in darkness? The Lord said He’s my friend Why do I walk alone? The said He’s the way Why do I wander off? The Lord said He’s the truth Why do I believe a lie? The Lord said He’s the life Why do I walk in death The Lord said He’s the Light Why do I walk in darkness? The Lord said He’s the Bread of Life Why do I walk in need? The Lord says He’s the resurrection Why do I remain in the grave? The Lord said He’s the Word made flesh Why do I not believe? He has told us all these things So we could walk in faith Believing every word and not doubting what He said Determine this In your heart to rejoice this very day Because I have just told you what our Savior said And you can know it’s true Because Jesus loves you!
I’ve come to listen, Lord, to hear you speak
For your truth is what I seek
I long to hear your gentle voice
Come to me now and I’ll rejoice
For you speak life into my soul
You speak hope and make me whole
You speak wisdom so I might learn
You speak glory for which I yearn
You speak peace to calm my storms
You speak joy/ My heart you warm
Lord give me life today I ask
To hear your voice is my only task
