How Gracious he Is To Me

 His mercy and grace wash over me
 Like a cleansing stream from Calvary
 His stripes and His blood have set me free
 How gracious He is to me
  
 He heals and delivers from every sin
 Sends His Holy Spirit to dwell within
 What a glorious friend I have in Him
 How gracious He is to me
  
 CHORUS
 Oh, how I love Him
 Oh, how I need Him
 Oh, how I love Him so
 Jesus my Savior
 Gracious redeemer
 He is the answer to all of my question
 How gracious He is to me
 How gracious He is to me
  
 He sets my feet on higher ground
 He gives me joy that always abounds
 I am so glad that I have found
 How gracious He is to me
  
 CHORUS
 
 BRIDGE
 He picks me up when I fall
 He holds my hand and leads me
 He never leaves me alone
 He is always near
 He is always near
  
 CHORUS 

Ancient of Days

 He stands at the door knocking, waiting for your heart to open to Him
 He stands at the door knocking, Hoping you will let Him in
 His invitation’s open to all who will come hungry. Hungry for the bread of life
 His invitation’s open to all whose souls are thirsty. Thirsty for the living water
 He will light the way.  He will show you truth. He will give new life to you
 Don’t be left behind. He is coming soon.  He is coming back for you.
  
 Come into His presence
 Come into His chambers
 Come into the ancient of days
 Come with hallelujahs
 Come with highest praises
 Come into the ancient of days
 And give Him praise
 Give Him praise
 Give Him praise 

Life Abundantly

 I can’t explain this peace that washes over me
 Every time a troubled sea is in my soul
 It seems I put my trust in Him to guide me safely home
 Because I know my God is in control
  
 I can’t explain this joy that brings a smile to my face
 When tribulation rears its ugly head
 I know that He will teach me of His wondrous grace
 And everything will work out for my good
  
 I can’t explain this hope that says I’m bound for heaven
 I’ve put my faith in Jesus Christ
 He promised He was building me a mansion home
 A place to dwell through my eternal life
  
 I can’t explain the love that God has shown to me
 His wondrous plan I didn’t even know
 He gave His son to die for me amidst my sinful ways
 Remove them all and wash me white as snow
  
 Even though I can’t explain it still I know it’s true
 That God became a sacrifice tor me and you
 If there is just one thing you really need to do
 Is call upon His name and He will pardon you
  
 Your sin was nailed to His cross on calvary
 Forgiveness He has spoken hanging on that tree
 He rose again and to show us His great victory
 Come before the Lord and pray with me
  
 Father forgive me. Father I have sinned
 Father take my life. Give me joy within
 I now make you Lord of my life today
 Come and show me your precious ways
  
 If you prayed that prayer now you have life abundantly
 The Son of God has saved your soul today
 I pray you’ll go to church and read your Bible more
 So God can lead you safely on your ay
   

Safe in the Arms of God

 I found a place, a quiet place
 Where I could rest, where I feel blessed
 No enemy could harm me there
 Safe in the arms of God
  
 I found a song deep in my heart
 That lifted up to heaven’s hearth
 I hope I never will depart
 Safe in the arms of God
  
 There is no reason to despair
 No trouble can alarm me here
 My refuge and my fortress near
 Safe in the arms of God
  
 A place of grace boundless and free
 A place where mercy covers me
 A place I’ll live eternally
 Safe in the arms of God
  
 Come join me in this joyful place
 Come look at His adoring face
 Come know His mercy and His grace
 Safe in the arms of God 

Adopted

 
 I’ve squandered my existence on things I should not do
 I’ve travelled many roads where I truly should not go
 I’ve spoken many words that I never should have said
 I’ve done so many things that should have left me dead
  
 One day I was just walking with a  friend of mine
 He told me about Jesus and His love sublime
 I thought about that message and bowed my head in prayer
 Jesus saved me from myself right then and there
  
 He forgave me.  He redeemed me. 
 He set me on the path to heaven
 He restored me.  Oh what mercy
 I’m adopted as a son of God
  
 Now I do my best to walk with Him each day
 Sometimes I wander off the path and lose my way
 Bet He is quick to rescue me and take me in His arms
 He never lets me suffer long or come to any harm
  
 He upholds me.  He adores me
 I am not sure why He loves me so much
 He restores me.  Oh what mercy
 I’m adopted as a son of God
  
 An heir of the kingdom, His promises are mine
 His will has been written and my name is on the line
 I’ll praise Him forever with all my heart and soul
 For he is my Savior and my Lord
  
 He upholds me.  He adores me
 I am not sure why He loves me so much
 He restores me.  Oh what mercy
 I’m adopted as a son of God
  
 He forgave me.  He redeemed me. 
 He set me on the path to heaven
 He restored me.  Oh what mercy
 I’m adopted as a son of God
   

Come Quickly

 I have fallen
 I am broken
 I feel lost and all alone
 Left His mercy
 Just to please me
 How on earth can I atone
  
 I disobeyed
 And I betrayed
 The love He showed to me
 I come humbly
 Seeking mercy
 To the cross of calvary
  
 Lord, forgive me for my failure
 Lord, forgive my selfishness
 Come, Lord Jesus, please come quickly
 Help me once again feel blessed
  
 Now He’s speaking
 He is hearing
 My heartfelt plea today
 He forgives me
 Shows His mercy
 I lift my hands in praise
  
 Lord, restore me in my weakness
 Lord, restore my heart for you
 Thank you that you have come quickly
 Now I know your will I’ll do
  
 Once again He has forgiven
 Once again he has restored
 Once again His mercy wins out
 All my heart is yours my Lord 

Mercy Greater Than My Sin

All around me people worship
Giving praise to God above
Filled with joy they lift their voices
Celebrating His great love
 
I can’t help but join the chorus
Lifting hands I humbly sing
He has given me such mercy
Mercy greater than my sin
 
In my deepest, darkest caverns
Down below this mask I wear
I am drowning in my weakness
With a test that I still bare
 
I know that I should walk away
From all the devil’s schemes
Every day he comes alongside
Robbing all my righteous dreams
 
Every word of praise I’m singing
Works to drown his dreadful voice
Still I find my flesh is weakened
Even though my soul rejoiced
 
God of heaven, Lord of mercy
Take away this heart of stone
Fill me with desire that’s burning
Set my mind on you alone
 
Again I raise my soul to praise Him
He has made me pure within
I will be forever grateful
Mercy greater than my sin

Two Things

There’s only two things you must know
To be all you can be
Thing one is His great mercy
Thing two is grace that’s free
 
Mercy reached out to touch our lives
When Jesus came from above
Took the form of a baby
Because of His great love
 
Mercy was with Him every day
As He healed all that would come
Taught the ways of the Kingdom
Truly was God’s Son
 
Mercy then took Him to the cross
Where He bled and died for me
Mercy rose Him up from the grave
So I’d live eternally
 
The greatest show of mercy
The world has ever seen
Is something I must know deep down
Because it was done for me          
 
Grace has supplied my every need
From the moment I was born
From the fresh air that I breath each day
To the sunrise every morn
 
Grace followed us as we grew in years
For it truly gave us life
Each trial that we faced has passed
And grace helped us survive
 
Grace gave the greatest gift of all
When we asked the Savior in
By grace are you saved through faith my friend
It is grace that makes you win
 
This grace that’s so amazing
Grace always blesses me
He gives it freely to us
Supplying ever need
 
When you are looking out ahead
At what your life may bring
Make sure that grace and mercy
Are the most important thing

Missed His Grace

When I see all the chaos
In this crazy world of ours
I sit here and I wonder
How our time has been devoured

The preciousness of each new day
Seems best to have escaped
Before we know it sun has set
And we have missed His grace

His grace is with us every day
Each moment we’re alive
It gives us hope to carry om
It helps us to survive

But most times we just let it slip
Not giving grace a thought
We think we made it on our own
Through every battle fought

The truth is that His grace was there
When we were in a bind
He brought us out and lifted us
Out of the daily grind

But we just went our way again
Not giving grace a thought
While all the while it was right there
Our future grace has bought

The next time trouble comes your way
Lift up your eyes and see
That grace was there beside you
And grace has set you free

Only By Grace

By grace I stand in Jesus Christ
By His own selfless sacrifice
My sins are gone because He died
Only by grace
Only by grace

By grace I stand complete in Him
I have His Spirit deep within
He leads me on to righteousness
Only by grace
Only by grace

Nothing of me only of Him
All that I am is His
I am a child of Christ the King
Only by grace
Only by grace

Someday soon He’ll some for me
I’ll stand amazed His face to see
Then heaven’s home is where I’ll be
Only by grace
Only by grace

What price He paid
What gift He gave
To show His love for me
I owe Him all
I’ll heed His call
He knows what’s best for me

Nothing of me only of Him
All that I am is His
I am a child of Christ the King
Only by grace
Only by grace
