Return to Jesus

i was raised on Jesus
The church a second home
Throughout my high school years
i hardly ever roamed

I then got into crowds
That drew me far away
And i became a rebel
To sin I deeply strayed

But Jesus kept on calling
Throughout those rebel years
Til finally I returned to Him
And shedded many tears

He never will give up on us
He always wants pur hearts
If you have fallen far away
I pray that you’ll restart

Restart your trust in Jesus
He’s always by your side
Restart your trip to heaven
With Him you will abide

Mercy Washed Over Me

It’s mercy that called me
Mercy that saved me
Mercy that changed my life
Once I was lost
Now I am found
Mercy washed over me

Dirty and tired from the trials of life
My path seemed always uphill
Never a momemt of peace or  joy
Only some temporal thrills
Often I found myself wandering
Sometimes I thought I was drowning
Life was a game
Of troubles and pain
I was stuck without a way out

Determined to better my future
I looked for a way more secure
Thoroughly drained from my prevoius ways
I was anything but pure
I’d given up hope of resolving
The whirlpool where I was revolving
Bent out of shape
Hope had escaped
How could I get turned about

Then His love came in
Washed away my sin
Gave me peace I never had known
Oh the depth of love
That came down from above
His grace has made me whole

It’s mercy that called me
Mercy that saved me
Mercy that changed my life
Once I was lost
Now I am found
Mercy washed over me
