Victory is Mine

He rose up like a standard
Arms stretched out
Feet tied together
Nailed to a cross
A crown of thorns on His head
Bleed dripping down
Sipping vinegar from a sponge
Winning my victory
 
The battle was raging
As he hung there to die
Satan thought he would win
He had the Son of God on the brink of death
Humiliated between two thieves
Soaked in blood from being scourged
No way to escape the nails
Pain inescapable
Hanging in defeat
 
But the battle had just begun
He shouted out “Father, Forgive them”
All my sins, not just there’s
All my failures, not just theirs
All my disobedience, not just theirs
All of it
Every single transgression I had ever done
Gone in three words from Jesus
My victory won
Then He said “It is finished”
Hung His head and died
Gave up His life for me
The devil cried “Victory”
The battle raged on
 
Jesus went to Satan’s lair
Brought the keys
Set the captives free
He didn’t die just for me
He died for all
Gave His life for all
Even those that had died
He gave new life
Their Spirits rose and walked the streets of Jerusalem
Abraham, Joseph, Moses, Jacob, David
Ruth, Hannah, Bathsheba, even Eve\
All were covered
All were set free
All gained Victory
 
On the third day
The stone rolled away
Jesus rose from the grave
Full or power and grace
The battle is over
The victory won
For all time
For all mankind
 
So why do I keep fighting?
Why do I let the enemy have his way?
Why do I allow his torment?
Why do I even listen?
He is defeated
Jesus has won my victory
It’s time to walk in that victory
To put aside my defeat
To claim what He has already done
And make it mine today
Victory is mine.
 
 

The Love of the Cross

I could search a million miles across this earthly home
I could seek out every passion that has captured a heart
I could look for what is greatest
According to this world
But I'll never find a greater love than Jesus imparts 
 
CHORUS
He stretched out His arms for me
When they nailed Him to that tree
He bled and died to wash my sins away
What a precious gift of grace
What a precious gift of grace
 
No power is greater than the blood of the Lamb
No hope us greater than His promise to man
No one can hold Him back He's coming again 
No love is greater than the love of the cross
 
I have seen how lives have been changed when a person looks to Jesus
Turning from their sin and making Him Lord of all
When they finally hear His voice and answer His call
There's no power on earth that can do what Jesus does
No power on earth can do what Jesus does
No power on earth can do what Jesus does 
 
Chorus
 
Bridge
Nothing can separate me 
Nothing can separate me 
Nothing can separate me from His love (4X)

This Love

I believe that God sent His Son to die
I believe He was brutally crucified
I believe Jesus gave away His life
This is what I believe

I believe in the cross of Calvary
I believe in the blood He shed for me
I believe that this blood has set me free
This is what I believe

Nothing can take away this love
Nothing can take away this love
Nothing can take away this love
This love that God has for me

I believe that He died that fateful day
I believe that He rose up from the grave
I believe that He’s coming back one day
This is what I believe

Nothing can take away this love
Nothing can take away this love
Nothing can take away this love
This love that God has for me

His word He has given
His promise is true
His mercy forgives me
His grace makes me whole
His power is in me
His peace floods my soul
His joy overwhelms me
I give Him control

Nothing can take away this love
Nothing can take away this love
Nothing can take away this love
This love that God has for me

The Believers Life

Come To Him

He took the time to come to me
To set me free
At Calvary

He took the time to come to me
To deliver me
From all dis-ease

He took the time to come to me
To be with me
For eternity

He took the time to some to me
Down from His seat
In heavens retreat

He took the time to come to me
Will I take the time to come to Him

To come to Him down on my knees
With all me please
For others needs

To come to Him with arms raised high
To give my life
A sacrifice

To come to Him first every day
To give Him praise
To seek His face

To come to Him for all my needs
He gives me peace
Sets me at ease

He came to you
Will you come to Him?

Jesus Life

I Remember the Cross

There are times that I get hurt by those around me
They do something that I don’t really like
I’ll fuss and moan about offenses given
And I’ll hold my anger right ion through the night

I don’t feel any better
In fact I feel much worse
This feeling that’s inside of me
Can soon become a curse
Somehow I must release it
I search for ways to cope
And then I look to Jesus
That’s where I find my hope

I remember the cross
And the price that He paid
To purchase my salvation
To show me heaven’s way
He said I am forgiven
Now I must pass it on
Forgiving those who hurt me
Forgiving everyone

Now each time someone might say something offensive
Or do something that hurts down in my soul
Right there and then I pray and I forgive them
There’s none of that offense that I will hold

Forgiveness I will give
Forgiveness I will live
I’ll put aside offenses
I’ll live a life of love
For Jesus paid the price
And He’s forgiven me
I’ll practice that forgiveness
So others will be free

I remember the cross
And the price that He paid
To purchase my salvation
To show me heaven’s way
He said I am forgiven
Now I must pass it on
Forgiving those who hurt me
Forgiving everyone
