A Spring Within

I’ve got joy in troubles
Joy in tears
Joy in sorrow
Joy in fears
I can say without a doubt
When I am hurting joy wins out

You ask how joy can overcome
The heartaches that will often come
How can a man be rocked with pain
And have a joy that still remains

It is no secret gift I have
Nor is it hid from any man
This joy is here for you to gain
When life seems to go down the drain

Just turn your mind to Jesus Christ
And realize He bled and died
Was tortured and was crucified
In nine short hours paid the price

Yet His word said that joy was there
As He gave sight to what’s ahead
His eyes not fixed on earthly things
Or all the troubles this life brings

If we would turn our eyes and see
The gifts that grace has meant to be
Our lives are filled with His sweet love
Besides those things that wait above

If we could only rest our mind
Away from troubles in our lives
Than joy would be a spring within
That never will grow dry again

 

His Mercy Covers

His mercy covers all my sin
His mercy covers all my sin
When He gave His life for me
From my shame He set me free
His mercy covers all my sin

His mercy covers all my doubt
His mercy covers all my doubt
As I look to Him in faith
He will answer when I pray
His mercy covers all my doubt

His mercy covers all my fear
His mercy covers all my fear
He will fill me with His love
As I look to God above
His mercy covers all my fear

His mercy covers all the earth
His mercy covers all the earth
As I lift my voice in praise
I will worship His sweet name
His mercy covers all the earth

Mercy For Every

For every storm
For every pain
His mercy comes again

For every doubt
For every fear
His mercy’s always near

For every sigh
For every shame
His mercy still remains

For every sin
For every stain
His mercy is my gain

There’s no end to His mercy
There’s nothing that prevails
For every situation
His mercy never fails

For every one
Who’s lost in sin
His mercy is for every

For every one
Who feels left out
His mercy is for every

For every one
Who has some doubts
His mercy is for every

For every one
Whose lost their shout
His mercy is for every

There’s no end to His mercy
There’s nothing that prevails
For every situation
His mercy never fails

Every father, every son
Every daughter, every one
Every mother in her love
His mercy is for every

Release and Replace

Release all things that trouble you
They put you in a bind
Replace them with the Holy Fruit
The Spirit plants inside

Release the fear that follows you
Through every passing thought
Replace it with a lasting love
That only comes from God

Release the sorrow of past sins
That come back just to bother
Replace it with abundant joy
That’s given from your Father

Release the worry that you feel
When thinking of tomorrow
Replace it with the peace of God
That’s permanent not borrowed

Release frustration that demands
You shouldn’t have to wait
Replace it with longsuffering
To guide you through each day

Release the harshness of your tongue
That lashes out at friends
Replace it with His gentleness
Which speaks with good intent

Release the hurtful things you do
When someone does you wrong
Replace it with His goodness
Which makes others feel strong

Release the doubts that creep in
When things just don’t go right
Replace it with unfailing faith
That guides you to His Light

Release all things that make you want
More than you should have
Release the temperance that helps
Your lifestyle to behave

Release the insecurity you feel
When facing unbelief
Replace it with a meekness that
Speaks with authority

Release all things that trouble you
They put you in a bind
Replace them with the Holy Fruit
The Spirit plants inside

A Thunderous Ovation

I won’t waste my time to wallow in fear
When the world falls apart all around me
I won’t take the time to listen to doubt
Since I know that my God has assured me

I won’t take the time to question this hope
That grows more inside me each day
I won’t take the time to seek a new path
Since He guides my steps all the way

I’ll use all my time to worship
To lift up His glorious name
Each moment I live
To God I will give
A thunderous ovation of praise

I won’t take the time to lose any sleep
Over things that I cannot control
I won’t take the time to worry and fret
Since I have the peace if the Lord

I’ll use all my time to worship
To lift up His glorious name
Each moment I live
To God I will give
A thunderous ovation of praise

No worry or fear
No doubt or dismay
No hopelessness ever will win
No trouble or test
No sorrow or hurt
Can steal the joy I have within

I’ll use all my time to worship
To lift up His glorious name
Each moment I live
To God I will give
A thunderous ovation of praise

Sweet Peace

My soul has days that worry looms
Inside my mind I’m filled with gloom
It seems I can’t find rest from fear
Then suddenly your peace appears

Peace sweet peace
Overwhelms me like a flood
Peace sweet peace
Was provided by your blood

The storms of life are gathered ‘round
My feet seem stuck in sinking ground
I pray to God my path to clear
He hears my cry and peace appears

Peace sweet peace
Overwhelms me like a flood
Peace sweet peace
Was provided by your blood

The wind will howl and shake the trees
The waves will roll incessantly
Then Jesus comes and calms the seas
He leaves me with His gentle peace

Peace sweet peace
Overwhelms me like a flood
Peace sweet peace
Was provided by your blood

He said my peace I leave with you
Let not your heart be troubling you
Don’t be afraid my peace is more
Than this world ever can afford

Peace sweet peace
Overwhelms me like a flood
Peace sweet peace
Was provided by your blood

Trusting Jesus

When my joy turns into sorrow
Under burdens that arise
Days of worry come upon me
As a tear forms in my eye
Sadness could come overwhelm me
If I let these thoughts go on
But I’ve learned to seek my Savior
When my troubles are prolonged

When my peace has been disrupted
Turmoil starts to swirl around
My mind wanders out of wanting
To find rest from troub’ling sounds
Doubt could eas’ly overtake me
If I let these thoughts go on
But I’ve learned to trust my Savior
He will keep me from all harm

Trusting Jesus in my trials
Trusting Jesus in my doubts
Trusting Jesus when I worry
He will turn my life about
When the hard times come upon me
There’s no reason to get down
I have learned to trust in Jesus
Jesus makes my life abound

When I start to doubt His wisdom
My life seems to be off track
I can’t seem to find the answer
To the questions that I ask
Storms of life are gathered ‘round me
Whirlwinds howling in my ear
I have learned to trust in Jesus
In the midst of all my fears

Trusting Jesus in the thunder
Trusting Jesus in the rain
Trusting Jesus when I cannot find
My way back home again
He is always watching over me
He is always by my side
I can rest with calm assurance
When in Jesus I abide

I will trust Him
I will trust Him
I will trust the Lord
Even in the darkest storm
I’ll stand upon His word
I will trust Him
I will trust Him
Each and every day
I will give my life to Him
I will trust the Lord

He’s Mine

If not for the Lord I’d still be in sin
No pardon for me the devil would win
I’d flounder through life and wish for retrieve
Then in the end hell my soul would receive

If not for the Lord no joy would be mine
My laughter would be empty echoes through time
Sorrow below in my merriest rhymes
I’d wind up with smiles my face would tell lies

But He’s mine, all mine
He redeemed me that day long ago
He’s mine, eternally mine
He is with me wherever I go

If not for the Lord all hope would be lost
I’d pay the price now an eternal cost
No future would hold anything prosperous
I’d flounder through life in a whirlwind of loss

If not for the Lord my peace would subside
I’d think I was calm but I’d tremble inside
When it seemed things were right only fear would reside
Only terror would fill up the thoughts of my mind

But He’s mine, all mine
He redeemed me that day long ago
He’s mine, eternally mine
He is with me wherever I go

I don’t have to worry
I don’t have to fret
I don’t need to have any doubt
When I asked Him to save me
He did it that day
And my life was turned about

Yes He’s mine, all mine
He redeemed me that day long ago
He’s mine, eternally mine
He is with me wherever I go

Free

Free
Free from doubt
Doubt about my future
Doubt about which path to follow
Doubt about who is in control

Free
Free from fear
Fear of the future
Fear of the things from my past
Fear of falling into a trap

When I gave my life to Jesus
He set me free
And He keeps me free
For eternity

Free
Free from shame
Shame about my sin
Shame about the words of my lips
Shame about who I have hurt

Free
Free from guilt
Guilt about who I have hurt
Guilt about my sinful past
Guilt about a wasted life

When I gave my life to Jesus
He set me free
And He keeps me free
For eternity

Free
Free from worry
Worry about the provisions of life
Worry about who might hurt me
Worry about where I will find happiness

Now I am free
Free to have joy
Free to have peace
Free to have hope
Free to have His love

When I gave my life to Jesus
He set me free
And He keeps me free
For eternity

No Worries

I never have to worry
If you are here with me
Because your word tells
That’s where you’ll always be

I never have to worry
If you will hear my prayer
Because you word s true
When you say you’ll lend an ear

The world may think it’s silly
For me to have such faith
But I will just ignore them
And praise you all the way

I never have to worry
If you will strengthen me
When the trials come my way
Your strength is all I need

I never have to worry
If you will be on time
Your answer will come when
And however you decide

The world thinks I am crazy
To trust you all the way
But you have never failed me
No, not any single day

I think it’s ’cause I praise you
From morning until night
life my voice in worship
You make all things right

And when I sing your prayers
My worries disappear
You come and fill my spirit
With words of peace and cheer

So I will go on praising you
Every moment, every day
And all my doubt and worry
Will swiftly fade away
