The Lord is With Me

The Lord is with me
Wherever I go
He is before me and behind me
He is to my right and to my left
He is above me and He guides my steps
If I should turn
He turns with me
And guides me back on the path
If I should stumble
He steadies my feet
And gently holds me up
Even if I fall
He is there to pick me up
And set me on my feet again
And if I tire
He is there to carry me

The Lord is with me
He knows my every thought
Whether good or bad
His Holy Spirit helps me see
When I have not thought right
He guides me to the truth
His wisdom comes from above
He helps me understand
Where I went wrong
Then He gives me His word
Which transforms my mind
So that I might speak with grace
To build up those around me
I listen for His voice
To tell me the words to say
Day in and day out

The Lord is with me
He knows my every deed
He knows when I do good
He knows when I do wrong
He forgives me when I mess up
Then he shows me the right way
The way to ask forgiveness
Of those I may have wronged
He keeps me from being offended
Then I ask forgiveness
When I have wronged others
He shows me the needy
So that I might help them
He shows me the sick
So that I may lay hands on them
Then He will heal them

The Lord is with me
Thus I will praise Him
I will lift my voice
I will raise my hands
I will look for His face
I will sing Hallelujah
Hosanna in the highest
Honor glory and power
To the Lamb upon the throne
Holy is He
High and lifted up
Worthy of my praise
Worthy of all honor
Forevermore
I will praise Him
For the Lord is with me

 

Way Beyond Compare

I was sitting here just thinking
Of what Christ has done for me
How He came down from His throne
Just to give me victory
He gave up His life to save me
Took a beating near to death
Then nails into His hands and feet
And a spear into His chest

I was thinking of His majesty
That he gave it up for me
When He laid there in a manger
And shepherds came to see
He didn’t have to come down
He could have stayed in heaven
But he loved us all so much
That He died for our redemption

Oh what great compassion
Jesus has for you and me
I have to lift my voice up high
And praise His majesty
Praise His love and mercy
Praise His wondrous grace
Praise Him with a loud voice
Lift His glorious name

Hosanna to my Jesus
Hallelujah to my King
He is ruler of the heavens
That is why I sing
He has amazing love
For you and I to share
This life I have with Jesus
Is way beyond compare

Your Love is More

Your love is more amazing then the heavens filled with stars
Your love is more spectacular than Jupiter or Mars
Your love is more extraordinary than a precious pearl
Your love is more than anything found in this old world

Your love is more astounding than thunder in the sky
Your love is more magnificent than lightning in the night
Your love is more fantastic than a brand new shiny car
Your love is more wonderful than sunsets seen afar

Jesus I don’t understand why you love me so
Yet you just keep on giving me this love down in my soul
Even when I mess up and think I’ve lost my way
You just keep forgiving me and cover me with grace

Jesus hold me closely and never let me go
Help me find a way to return to you this love
Keep me on the narrow path so one day I may be
Sitting at your throne above for all eternity

 

Trust in God

I Will Trust You

When times get hard
And I see no end
To the test I’m in
I will trust you

When joy is gone
And my sorrow grows
It is then I know
I will trust you

When my health is poor
And I feel so sick
My heart faints within
I will trust you

When my finances
Are so steeped with debt
I can’t seem to win
I will trust you

When I stand for you
And my friends are gone
When I’m all alone
I will trust you

You have always been there
Always cared
Always done what’s best for me
Even when I cannot see
Your grace always wins
Your love just begins
To ease my suffering
It is then I know
I can trust you

What He Went Through For You

I want to tell you how much Jesus loves you
You have to know what He went through for you
He did not have to come
He is God’s only Son
He could have stayed in Heaven all His days

He came down to this earth as a baby
Born in a lowly manger filled with hay
He was the King of Kings
But this babe had nothing
Only Shepherd’s came to greet Him where He lay

He walked upon this earth as a teacher
He healed the sick wherever He would got
But leaders of the day
Tried to find a way
To ridicule and prove He was a fraud

They finally decided He must be killed
They used their power to send Him to the cross
He was beaten and scorned
His scalp was pierced with thorns
They didn’t know that He’d accept the cost

They nailed Him to the tree at Calvary
They mocked Him as He slowly gave His life
But then He said forgive them
The people were astonished
That He could have compassion as He died

They placed Him in a borrowed tomb that evening
Three days He lay and friends hid while they mourned
The stone then rolled away
He rose again that day
We all can now rejoice for He’s alive

He came to earth for you
He bled and died for you
He rose again for you
He’s coming back for you
Won’t you cry out today
Ask Him your sins to take
He came to die for you
Because He loves you

Sold Out For Jesus

The days have gone that used to be
No longer will I wander
I’ve found the way to life and peace
Because I know the Father

He is my source for everything
That matters in this life
All that I say and do down here
Comes from His sacrifice

He sent His Son to die for me
That my sins might be clean
Now I will give my all for Him
There is no in between

I’ll say the words He tells me to
I’ll go where He will lead
I’ll follow Him down every path
I’ll love all that I see

For I’m sold out for Jesus
He is my rock and stay
From now on I will lift my voice
And give Him all my praise

He saved me from a life of sin
He healed me from the plague
There is no turning back for me
I’ll follow Him always
