Once upon a time there was a sinner Who looked and acted just like me He didn’t know He needed a redeemer To wipe away his sin and set him free Once upon a time there was a Savior Who came into this world from heaven’s throne He died to bring salvation to this sinner And make him like a child of His own Once upon a time this sinner fell down’ Upon His knees in wonder of it all He confessed his sin and asked the Savior To wipe away the stain and make him whole Once upon a time the Savior saw him Crying out in desperate need of love He picked the sinner up in His arms And carried him to his new home above This may sound like a fairy tale to some folks But I assure there’s truth on every word The sinner once was me in desperation The Savior’s name is Jesus Christ the Lord He came into this world to buy my pardon They crucified Him on a rugged cross The sin of all the world upon His shoulders His death brought life that day upon that cross Once upon a time he came to save you Once upon a time he bore your sin Won’t you please take Jesus as your Savior So He can bring you back to God again?
When I look at the cross, I see mercy Pouring down from the blood on His brow All of heaven came down at that moment To forgive to forgive me and make me His child When I look at the cross, I see great grace Given freely with the nails in His hands All the riches of heaven became mine When they He suffered and died for my shame When I look at the cross, I am peaceful He took all my punishment there I don’t have to worry about storms that may come They all crumble and vanish away When I look at the cross, I see His love As He gave up His life for me All the suffering that He endured that day Just to pardon and sanctify me When I look at the cross I am hopeful For eternally living with Him I will lift up my praise and my worship Top the Lamb who has washed all my sin
I’ve wandered too long in the shadow of death The mountains tower high on each side It seems that I cannot find my way out So, I look for a place to abide I see a small cleft in the side of the rock It seems like a good place to stay When I get there, I am surprised to find That the cleft is actually a cave I stand at the entrance and look out below The river runs down through the land Then suddenly strange things begin to unfold As I watch from the place where I stand First the wind howled hard and the mountains did shake Then I heard the rumblings of a great earthquake Soon a fire was roaring from some unknown place All of these brought no solace to me But after the commotion of these three strange things A still, small voice started speaking to me I listened really closely to hear the voice speak And I knew that this voice was speaking to me He said “Child, do not worry or fret in this place I have carved out the cleft so you’ll know my grace You are safe and secure in the palm of my hand Even in the midst of the storms and the rain” Then I felt a comfort that I’d never known The valley of death was no longer my home I was now in the hand of my Savior and King I could not be hurt be anything
I once was bound but now I’m free I once was blind but now I see I once was troubled but now have peace Oh, what a Savior He is to me I once had fear but now have faith I once was guilty but He took my place I once was a sinner but he showed me grace Oh, what a Savior He is to me What a Savior He is to me Took my sin, nailed it to a tree All my shame and guilt gone forevermore Gave me new life, my heart restored I once had sorrow but now have joy I once had despair, but hope I enjoy I once was so poor, but now riches untold Oh, what a Savior He is to me What a Savior He is to me Gives me life eternally Relieves all my fears and all of my doubts From all of my troubles He leads me out So, I will praise Him, I will lift my voice Up to the heavens with a shout of praise So, I will praise Him, I will lift His name Higher and higher will I lift my praise.
I’m resting today in the power of His love There is no greater power on earth His love never fails and it never gives up I’m resting today in His love I’m resting today in the light of His joy There is no greater happiness found His joy lifts me up when this life gets me down I’m resting today in His joy I’m resting today in the calm of His peace There is nothing that unsettles me His peace stills the wind and the waves when they come I’m resting today in His peace I’m resting today in the strength of His hope There is no way I’ll let go of Him His hope lets me know that my future is bright I’m resting today in His peace I hope that today you are resting in Him There is no greater life than this To know that the Savior is walking with you Please rest today in Him
I was walking down the street just the other day With no set destination on my mind My headphones were in place As I walked a steady pace I had set out just to pass some time Then a song came on that got my feet a dancing The beat set me in motion, feeling fine I raised my arms up high And my feet felt really light I felt like I had just grown wings to fly The song gave praise to Jesus Christ my Lord They sang hallelujah all in one accord It set my heart ion fire With a Holy Ghost desire To worship right along as I went forward Hallelujah to the Lamb who was slain Hallelujah to the one who has risen again He died to set me free And He’s coming back for me Hallelujah to the Lord of Lords Thank you Jesus I am made brand new Ever since I put my faith in you I will praise you with my song As you ask me to press on Every trial you will see me through I arrived back at my house out of breath I’d been dancing and singing since I left My spirit felt renewed My hope restored in you Lord, thank you for this time I won’t forget I won’t forget the price you paid for me ‘I won’t forget that you have set me free I won’t forget your grace Or the mercy that you gave Just to pardon and sanctify me
Worship the babe Born in a manger King of all Kings To the world He’s a stranger Worship the man Showed us the Father Taught us the way To life ever after Worship the Lamb Led to the slaughter Beaten and bruised For His sons and His daughters Worship the King He rose up from the grave Death is defeated He’s alive again Worship the Lion Roaring in Victory King of all Kings Lord of all Lords King of all Kings And Lord of All Lords
The Savior now sits upon His throne He rose from the grave and ascended above The praise of the angels greeted Him there The Cherubim flying around in the air Oh, how I’d love to hear the applause As Jesus ascended from earths humble cause He bought our salvation and set us all free By taking upon Him the curse meant for me Praise, adoration and worship on High Unto the one who has won the fight Satan defeated when he thought he’d won Victory given to God’s only Son From lamb who was slaughtered to lion who reigns He did it all our vict’ry to claim Death is defeated, the grave has no sting It’s time to lift up our praises and sing Hosanna, hosanna to Jesus my Lord Hallelujah, amen to the one I adore Exalted and seated upon the throne All power and authority He does now own Forever I’ll worship and lift up His name Because of Him my life is not the same I am a victor because of He arose And I’ll live forever with Jesus my Lord
I have nothing to give Nothing to offer Him For the life that He gave In place of my offering There was no earthly reason He should die in my place When Jesus gave up His life And showed me His grace CHORUS Amazing grace, amazing love Amazing gift for me My God did reconcile my sin That day He set me free Now I look upon that cross The price that He has paid The tears well up inside As I lift my voice in praise CHORUS BRIDGE Oh, how amazing. Oh, how wonderful Is my Saviors love for me (repeat) CHORUS
When three men faced the fire When Daniel faced the lions When Joshua faced the walls God never failed When Gideon fought with hundreds When Samson lost His long hair When David faced Goliath God never failed He never failed before and He will not fail me now In some grave situations I cannot tell you how His mercy is enormous His grace will always win I know that in my weakness He’ll find me a way out When cancer filled my blood When pride made me to fall When troubles overtook me God never failed He never failed before and He will not fail me now In some grave situations I cannot tell you how His mercy is enormous His grace will always win I know that in my weakness He’ll find me a way out He will deliver me. He will deliver me I know He has paid the price. He will deliver me I’ll lift up my hands in praise. I’ll lift up my hands in Praise I know he will make a way. My God will deliver me He never failed before and He will not fail me now In some grave situations I cannot tell you how His mercy is enormous His grace will always win I know that in my weakness He’ll find me a way out
