Out Of The Mire

In my distress

I cried to the Lord

He lifted me out of the mire

Carried me up 

To a lofty place

And filled all my heart’s desire

Now I can sing

Of His wonderful grace

His mercy is covering me

I’ll lift up His name

His wonderful name

For He has supplied all my needs

For all of my sorrows 

He gave me His joy

For all of my troubles

He gave me His peace 

For all of my worry

He gave me His hope

On top of it all was His love

Oh what a Savior

Is Jesus my Lord

What a wonderful Savior to me

Whenever I’m down

He lifts me up

Then walks down the road with me

The joy of the Lord is my strength 

His peace oasses all I know

The hope that He gives is enduring 

Oh how He loves me so

For all of my sorrows 

He gave me His joy

For all of my troubles

He gave me His peace 

For all of my worry

He gave me His hope

On top of it all was His love

His Wonderful Grace

What is it that keeps me coming back to God
What is it that makes me crave His vast and wonders love
What is it that assures me that He is enough
It’s his grace
His wonderful grace

What is it that removes all of my doubts and fears
What is it that dries my eyes and wipes away my tears
What is it that makes my worries all disappear
It’s his grace
His wonderful grace

I thank Him for the grace that He has shown to me
I thank Him for the grace that makes me what I need to be
I thank Him for the grace that caused my heart to see
His great grace
His wonderful Grace

I will sing His Praises my voice will raise up high
I will lift my hands and worship reaching for the sky
The world will know this grace as my words do testify
That He alone is Worthy
Worthy to be praised
He alone is Worthy
I’ll celebrate his grace
He alone is Worthy
One day soon I’ll see his face
All of this from His wonderful grace

Through and Through

I can’t explain His mercy
I can’t explain His grace
I can’t explain the love He has for me
For when I was a sinner
Didn’t even know He cared
He left His throne to come and rescue me

I was lost and lonely
Drowning in despair
My life was heading down a wicked road
A still small voice then spoke
It called to me that day
I knew that there was nowhere else to go

What a wondrous Savior
What a faithful friend
That He would love me just the way I am
I knelt before the altar
I gave my life to Him
That day the road I travelled led to Him

Today I try to serve Him
With all my heart and soul
But often I will stumble and will fall
He treats me with compassion
He shows His grace to me

I understand He loves me
But I cannot explain
Why He would forgive the things I do
I’ll rest here in His mercy
I’ll rest here in His grace
Because I know He loves me through and through

At the Foot of the Cross

I wrote this song several years ago but don;t think I ever posted it here. This is a good time to do that!

At the foot of the cross, the blood drips down
From the nails in his feet and the thorns in his brow
A crimson pool gathers there on the ground
At the foot of the cross.

CHORUS
There is forgiveness at the foot of the cross
Mercy unending, at such a great cost
Grace everlasting, eternal and free
At the foot of the cross

At the foot of the cross, my tears pour out
I am free from my fear, free from my doubt
I found a Savior to turn me about
At the foot of the cross

CHORUS

At the foot of the cross, I now kneel in prayer
To my wonderful savior, who died for me there
He has risen to Heaven, and will soon take me there
From the foot of the cross.

CHORUS

REFRAIN
Grace everlasting, eternal and free
At the foot of the cross. At the foot of the cross

 

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

 

This Love

I believe that God sent His Son to die
I believe He was brutally crucified
I believe Jesus gave away His life
This is what I believe

I believe in the cross of Calvary
I believe in the blood He shed for me
I believe that this blood has set me free
This is what I believe

Nothing can take away this love
Nothing can take away this love
Nothing can take away this love
This love that God has for me

I believe that He died that fateful day
I believe that He rose up from the grave
I believe that He’s coming back one day
This is what I believe

Nothing can take away this love
Nothing can take away this love
Nothing can take away this love
This love that God has for me

His word He has given
His promise is true
His mercy forgives me
His grace makes me whole
His power is in me
His peace floods my soul
His joy overwhelms me
I give Him control

Nothing can take away this love
Nothing can take away this love
Nothing can take away this love
This love that God has for me

Great Anticipation

I’m waiting here with great anticipation
The King of Kings is coming very soon
I won’t be left behind
For I have Christ on my mind
His precious blood has saved my soul from sin

There was a day when I was quite a mess
I didn’t know He died to set me free
One day He called to me
He said he died at Calvary
To give me life with Him eternally

Oh what mercy He has shown to me
Oh what grace He still bestows each day
I never want to leave His side
In Him I will always abide
When He appears He’ll carry me away

So I am looking up into the clouds
He said He would come back for all who know
The wonder of His love
Is really quite enough
To pay the debt of sin that we all owe

Today you need to give your life to Him
For if you don’t you’ll stay here on this earth
Hell will be your home
If He is not your Lord
So come to Him and have your second birth
