Sins Defeat

I’ve fought so hard to win the victory
Yet sin still seems to have its grip on me
I’ve wandered from His teaching way to long
Now I’m not sure if I can still go on

The guilt and shame of sin wells up inside
My heart pumps hard and there’s nowhere to hid
His eyes look down on me with love and grace
He reaches out His arms and we embrace

I realize right then I’ve done it wrong
I’ve truly had the vict’ry all along
I just needed to stand on my two feet
And decide I will not walk in sins defeat

The strength to stand comes from my walk with Him
He gives me power to leave behind my sin
The longer I keep fighting, never done
For Jesus has already freedom won

My vict’ry lies within His written word
There’s nothing more I need to be secured
I lift my hands, surrender all to Him
My heart, my soul my mind and all my sin

For long ago they nailed Him to a cross
His blood cleansed all my sin, He paid the cost
And then He rose in triumph over death
So I could give to Him my every breath

Become Alive

What am I to do with this Jesus
Who is bleeding and dying on a cross?
What am I to say about His mission?
Is it all just a waste and a loss

He was King of Kings and Lord of Lords in Heaven
Now the nails pierce His hands and His feet
How can I declare He is Messiah
When it looks like He is drowning in defeat?

He cries out “It is Finished” and His head bows
It seems all hope is lost for you and me
They take Him to the tomb and seal it tightly
His life would be lost in History

But then the third day comes
The stone rolls away
The guards faint in fright
Jesus is alive

He walks out of that grave
Alive for all to see
Death is defeated
He has gained the victory

In His weakness He was strong
When all seemed lost His mercy won
He lives again for all to see
That He had come to set us free

Now He sits upon the throne
King of Kings and Lord of Lords
The true Messiah for us all
It’s time to listen for His call

He calls to you.  He calls to you
Come out of death to life renewed
No more let sin reign in your life
Be born again.  Become alive!

It Is Finished

I found myself kneeling before His cross 
I could not explain how I felt
Tears of deep sorrow flowed from my eyes 
Dripping down in the blood where I knelt

I looked up to see my Savior so dear
His body all beaten and red
I cried our "Dear Lord what shall I do"
And He looked down at me and said

It is finished your redemption is paid 
It is finished your sin Is erased 
Don't be sad, do not weep
Keep your heart. Keep my peace
In three days all the world will see
It is finished

I stood up and started to praise him
As He gave up a sorrowful sigh
Then His head bowed and life just left Him
I now knew my Savior had died

As I went to my home, I remembered the words
That He spoke to me from His cross 
Then I fasted and prayed for those few days
Hoping soon I'd get over this loss

Then I heard great commotion outside in the street
Someone running and yelling real loud
He's Alive the kept saying
Over and over
He's alive.  He's alive. He's alive 

It is finished the battle is over
It is finished the victory mine 
Jesus has conquered the grave and death 
It is finished and He is alive

The Price You Paid

When I think of the pain you bore
And all that you’ve done for me
I can’t help but kneel at the foot of the cross
And thank you for setting me free

I was lost and drifting through life
Like a ship without a sail
You found me when I was dep in distress
And you covered me with your grace

I do not deserve this great mercy
As your love hears my desperate plea
I sit here in awe that such a great God
Would take time to rescue me

So now I will sing Thank you Jesus
For the price that you paid in the cross
I will tell all the world of your goodness
And the change in my life you have caused

For I was the chiefest of sinners
Now peace and joy reign in my heart
Thank you, dear Lord, for rescuing me
By leading me straight to the cross

I Deserved the Cross

As gentle as a Lamb
To the slaughter He was led
He did not say a word
As the blood flowed from His head

The cruelty they showed Him
He took with tender grace
The agone He suffered
He endured to take my place

I deserved the cross yet He took it all for me
I deserved the stripes that He took to set me free
I deserved the nails that pierced His feet and hands
I deserved the cross that Jesus bore for me

With the power of a lion
He rose up from the dead
Victory was in His hand
A crown upon His head

Not the crown of thorns they gave Him
But a royal crown of gold
Now He rules all of heaven
All of earth and all below

I deserved the cross yet He took it all for me
I deserved the stripes that He took to set me free
I deserved the nails that pierced His feet and hands
I deserved the cross that Jesus bore for me

He died to take my sin
He rose to give me life
Hallelujah, He has risen
Hallelujah He’s alive

I deserved the cross yet He took it all for me
I deserved the stripes that He took to set me free
I deserved the nails that pierced His feet and hands
I deserved the cross that Jesus bore for me

The Great Victory

I looked at the cross and what did I see
But Jesus my Lord looking down at me
His body was bloody and filled with pain
Then I heard Him say "I will rise again"

This cross is simply a means to an end
Soon I will die and this pain will end
They will put my body in a borrowed grave 
It will seem like all hope had been erased

A stone will be rolled across the door
Guards will be placed to make it secure
I will be busy behind the scenes
Leaving this grave to take back the keys 

I'll enter the realm of the devil himself 
And demand that he give me the keys he has held
These keys give release from hell and the grave
So that all who had loved me now will be raised

Then I will  roll the stone from the grave
The guards will be stunned and will fall down in place
I will rise victorious over death and the grave
And you will be granted new life in my name

A life filled with hope and joy and peace
A life where my mercy and grace never cease
Don't worry my child, do not be afraid
This cross that I bear brings a victory so great

The Cross For Me

The cross stood there before you
Ready to take your life
You were beaten, mocked and tortured
As the crowd cried crucify

They led you up a mountain
Exhausted you complied
Then they laid you on that cross
To suffer, bleed and die

Nails were swiftly driven
Through your wrists and feet
They raised the cross up high
So that all the world could see

All through that agony and pain
You never said a word
No slight complaint or whisper
Did you utter in return

Just a few hours later
It is finished you cried out
In that moment all of heaven
Let out a painful shout

The Son of God had given up
His life for you and me
Heaven’s Lamb, the King of Glory
Gave sin it’s last defeat

They laid Him in a borrowed tomb
A stone was put in place
Yet in three days it rolled away
From death to life, He raised

He raised my hope for heaven
He raised my peace from pain
He raised my joy from sorrow
He gave me life again

Oh, what a precious Savior
Is Jesus Christ my Lord
Forever I will praise Him
For the cross for me He bore

What A Savior He Is To Me

He left his throne to bear the cross
He left his crown my sin He bought
He left his majesty Supreme 
To come and save a wretch like me

He left His royal robes aside
He left the praise of heaven’s choir
He left His seat at God’s hand
To come and walk this sin filled land

It overwhelms me when I think
Of all He left behind
What a Savior He is to me
I’ll praise Him for all time

What great compassion
What boundless love
He covered my sin
His grace is enough

It’s All jesus

If there’s one thing I have learned
There is no way I can earn
His mercy
Or His grace

One more thing I have learned
It’s that I do not deserve
The glory
Or the praise 

It’s all Jesus
It’s the price that He paid
On the cross
It’s all Jesus
It’s the blood that He gave
Just for us

If there’s one thing I must do
It’s to lift my voice to you
My Savior
And my Lord

And give you praise
Give you glory
Give you honor
All my days

It’s all Jesus
It’s the price that He paid
On the cross
It’s all Jesus
It’s the blood that He gave
Just for us

Jesus Life

Happily Ever After

Once upon a time there was a Savior
Who came down from the heavens high above
He came a humble babe
And in a manger lay
He came to teach us of His Father’s love 

He walked upon the earth and brought deliverance
The common people flocked to hear him speak
But man of high estate
Thought death would be His fate
They convinced the people that His life was fake

This Savior was condemned to cruel death
They whipped Him so His blood ran crimson red
Then they nailed Him to a tree
Thinking they had victory
They’d be rid of Him once His flesh was dead

Then on that cross He spoke some words that traveled
Down through the course of man for all of time
He said father forgive them
For they know not what they do
Then he bowed His head and silently He died

The men of high estate were quite elated
The man they couldn’t stand was finally gone
But three days after death
He rose again to life
Bringing happily ever after to us all

This little verse may seem a fairy tale
But it is true and Jesus lives today
Just give your life to Him
And He’ll forgive your sin
Then for all time you will reign and live with Him
