Here I Am

When the enemy is rising up against you
When it seems you have nowhere to turn
When the sky is getting darker all around you
When the clouds above begin to churn

Don’t worry and don’t fret
The Lord is coming yet
He will turn the skies to bright sunshine
Just open up your ears
Soon you’ll begin to cheer
As you hear the Lord speak words of life

Here I am
Walk in my victory
Here I am
Walk in my strength
Here I am
I will never leave you
I will walk with you through every storm

Here I am
To comfort and to guide you
Here I am
To show you the way
Here I am
Trust in my mercy
I promise you will not be harmed

You never have to fear
For He is always near
The battle has been won
By Jesus Christ the Son
Just lift your hands in praise
Give Him glory all your days
Listen closely as He says Here I am

Here I am
Walk in my victory
Here I am
Walk in my strength
Here I am
I will never leave you
I will walk with you through every storm

Here I am
To comfort and to guide you
Here I am
To show you the way
Here I am
Trust in my mercy
I promise you will not be harmed

 

You Are My Truth

You are my truth
I can depend on you
When all the world does not know truth
I can point to you
I can trust in you
You will never fail me
Or forsake me
Your truth is a testament I can rely on
Your promises are true
Your warnings are true
Your judgments are true
Your prophecies are true
I never have to wonder
Or doubt
Or question
Because they were true
They are true
And they always will be true
When I struggle
When I have trials
When I have worries
Or sorrows
Your truth will revive me
Your truth will pull me out
When I question my way
Your truth will show me the way
When I am without good health
Your truth says You are my healer
When I fall into a dark place
Your truth says you are my deliverer
When the enemy comes in like a flood
You will raise up a standard against him
That standard is your truth
I never have to live in fear
Or wonder if I will make it through
For you are my truth

He’s the Best

He’s the best
He can pass any test
He’s above all the rest
He’s the best

When I need healing
When life is reeling
When sins appealing
He’s the best

When peace is gone
When I’m alone
When life goes wrong
He’s the best

He’s the best for my soil
The best for my spirit
The best for the depths of my heart
He’s the best for my health
The best for deliverance
The best for my days from the start

So I’ll trust in Jesus
I’ll run to Him
I’ll give my life to Him
Make Him my Lord
Because when all is done
He’s the best

 

I’ll Always Come Back

When it seems all is lost
And I feel all alone
That’s when I come crawling to you
When my sorrow grows dark
And my peace disappears
That’s when I come crawling to you

I can feel you draw near me
I can sense your sweet grace
That’s when I come walking to you
In the still of the night
Is the sound of your voice
That’s when I come walking to you

In your presence is mercy
Your face is all love
That’s when I come running to you
The closer I draw
The more wonders I feel
That’s when I come running to you

Then your joy overtakes me
Your peace rests my soul
That’s when I come leaping to you
My voice singing praises
To your wondrous name
That’s when I come leaping to you

I come crawling
I come walking
I come running
I come leaping
Whatever the trial
Whatever the test
I’ll always come back to you

Hold On

When all seems lost
When life is not fair
When you are alone
And it seems no one cares
When it seems all your plans
Are like smoke in the air
Hold on

When trials take over
And you see no way out
When the storms come up hard
And they fill you with doubt
When you cannot find peace
As waves toss you about
Hold on

Hold on to Jesus
Never let go
Hold onto hope
He’s the giver of hope
Hold onto love
He’s the author of love
Hold onto Jesus
He is enough

Hold onto grace
His grace covers all
Hold onto mercy
His mercy can’t fail
Hold onto faith
He’ll work with that seed
Hold onto Jesus
He’ll meet your need

He’ll never fail
He’s always there
He’s true and just
He is enough
He’ll see you through
He will calm you
Just cling to Jesus
Hold on

In Hard Times

Isolated

Sulking in a corner
Downstairs in my room
Thoughts of taking my life
All is doom and gloom
I can’t see a future
When I see my past
Why don’t I just end it
This misery will last

Isolated
All alone
The enemy attacks here
Going crazy
Hope is gone
Why am I in such fear

I search my inner being
I find a ray of hope
There’s something deep inside me
That rises like a smoke
It fills my mind with wonder
Then I can sense a joy
The Holy Spirit rises up
His peace I now employ

I won’t get isolated
I won’t go off alone
I won’t look at my past
That robs me of my hope
I’ll look to the future
Where God has plans for me
And in His loving arms
I will always be

Don’t get isolated
Don’t crawl inside your head
Allow the Holy Spirit
To bring joy instead
He is waiting for you
To summon Him today
Rise up from that depression
For God will show the way
