Astounding Grace

I am not forsaken.  I will not give up
I found my strength in Jesus. He is enough
Though Satan storms against me I will not turn aside
I will stand strong in the battle with Jesus by my side

It seems old Satan tries every means he can
To turn me from my Savior so I will trust in man
I will not be deceived by all His trickery
I’ll turn my heart to God for He’s my victory

Right now I call on Jesus and all the host of heaven
To come and hold me up in the comfort of His hand
The enemy seems strong but God is stronger still
I’ll fight on through this trial and heed my Saviors will

And when I gain the victory I’ll lift my hands in praise
To my precious loving Father who filled me with His grace
I’ll worship Him for giving me the mercy that I need
When Satan comes against me I’ll be found down on my knees

On my knees to pray for deliverance each day
On my knees to offer up my life to Jesus way
On my knees to praise Him for Her will show the way
On my knees before His throne astounded by His grace

For victory can only come when I am on my knees
The enemy is helpless when my cries to God increase
And even if it seems that my prayers have not been heard
I will stay down on my knees and trust His holy word

I know He won’t forsake me.  I know He won’t depart
I know that His great joy and peace will come and soothe my heart
I know without a doubt that all things work for good 
I know that Jesus loves me and my prayers He understood

Thank you Lord for giving me this peace within my soul
Thank you Lord for mercy when the devil seemed so bold
Thank you Lord for showing me your astounding grace
This day and every day I will lift your name in praise

His Benefits

 I will bless the Lord with all my soul for all He’s done for me
 When He gave His life so long ago on a hill called Calvary
 The stripes He took and the pain He bore He suffered all for me
 Now I’ll lift my voice and raise my hands to the one who set me free
  
 Through His death that day upon the cross I am blessed in many ways
 His benefits will follow me through each and every day
 The sins I have committed against Him were washed away
 I now stand before my Savior for my debt has been repaid
  
 What a host of benefits He has for me
 Forgiveness off my sins and healing for my pain
 Redemption from destruction a crown of mercy there for me
 He fills me with good things so my youth is back again
  
 He is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and so kind
 He has taken all my sins; they have all been left behind 
 He has separated them as far as east is from west
 Now every day He gives to me only what He knows is best
  
 I will bow down at His throne and lift my voice in praise
 For the wonder of His mercy and His amazing grace
 He deserves to be the center of my world all of my days
 Jesus is the only one who is worthy of my praise
   

I Will Abide

 I can’t get over what He did for me
 He healed my body and He set me free
 He changed my life beyond what others see
 When He died for me upon that tree
  
 CHORUS
 Precious Lord, all that I need
 I come to you on bended knee
 Please hold me closely to your side
 With you I always will abide
  
 Now every day He shows me the way
 He fills my mind with words that I should say
 In peace and joy I walk through every day
 I have it made in His sweet grace
  
 CHORUS
  
 The future looks hopeful and bright
 As He shows me the path to win the fight
 My destiny is in His glorious light
 Close by His side I will abide
  
 CHORUS

A Long Way To Go

 I don’t understand your mercy that wipes away all my sin
 I don’t understand your marvelous grace that blesses me once again
 I don’t understand the peace that instills a calm within my soul
 I don’t understand the joy overflowing when sorrow tries to take hold
  
 I have a long way to go but I know how to get there
 I’m trusting you all the way
 Day by day you will show me the road I should travel
 There is no other way
 I’m falling in love with you more all the time
 I just want to see your face
 So I will praise you.  I will praise you.
  
 I don’t understand this hope that arises when darkness is all I see
 I don’t understand why you give me wisdom when I act so foolishly
 I don’t understand the way that your light reveals all my deepest shame
 I don’t understand your love for me before I knew your name
  
 I have a long way to go but I know how to get there
 Your Spirit dwells in my heart
 There is no other one who can light up my path
 Reveling to me my part
 Every day I desire to do your will more than the day before
 My one desire  is to see your face
 So I will praise you.  I will praise you
  
 Down on my knees, my face in my hands
 I humbly bow down at your throne
 Lord hear my cry, hear my plea
 I’m begging you please hear my cry
 I love you Lord.  I love you Lord 

Desperation

 I've never felt so much loneliness
 When peace and joy seemed so far away
 My heart is restless sitting in this place
 I am broken and afraid I’ve lost my way
  
 I try to stand but feel the weight of fear
 I fall down on my knees in deep disgrace
 I feel the tears well up in my eyes
 My words come slowly as I start to pray
  
 CHORUS
 Lord I need you.  Lord I’m desperate
 Lord come quickly and mend my heart
 Lord I need you more than ever
 Come Lord Jesus.  Please come now
  
 I hear Him whisper gently in my ear
 My child I have always been right here
 Just call my name and I will come to you
 In times of desperation I am yours
  
 CHORUS
 
 BRIDGE
 He is always near.  He is always near.
 He is always near.  Right by my side
  
 CHORUS 

He Takes Time

 He takes time to talk with me
 Through His word
 Through His Spirit
 Through other people
 He cries out for me to listen
 Listen to His voice when I read the word
 He will speak wisdom to me
 He will speak knowledge to me
 He will show me truth
 The truth of His word
 The truth that will set the captive free
 Open the blind eyes of my heard
 Open my deaf ears
 Bring me back to life
 Help me to walk again
 If only I would listen
 If only I would take time to hear.
 He takes time for me
 Why don’t I take time for Him
  
 He takes time to walk with me
 Showing me the path
 Showing me His way
 His plan
 His desire for my life
 His path is always the right path
 Even when I go through danger
 Or trouble
 Or sickness or pain
 He is there with me’
 Right beside me
 At times He leads me
 Other times He pushes me forward
 But it is always in the right direction
 Because He knows where I should go
 He knows the plans for my life
 He knows how I can get there
 So He takes time to walk with me
 Why don’t I take time for Him?
  
 He takes time to hear my prayer
 Amon the millions that are praying
 Some with loud voices
 Some with whispers
 He hears me
 He hears me when I humble myself
 He hears me when I seek His face
 He hears me when I turn from my wicked ways
 He hears me in the morning
 He hears me in the night
 He hears me any times I call
 I am not an interruption
 Or a distraction
 Or an intrusion
 His ear inclines to me
 He is bending down
 With His ear to my lips
 So He can hear me
 Hear my cry
 Hear my plea
 Hear my request
 Hear my praise
 He wants to hear it all
 He takes time to listen to me
 Why don’t I take time for Him?
  
 He takes time to know me
 To know me intimately
 To know my faults
 My fears
 Me victories
 Me defeats
 He knows what blesses me
 He knows what offends me
 He knows what brings me joy
 He knows what brings me sorrow
 He knows everything about me
 He knows me
 He is with me in my hard times
 He rejoices when I rejoice
 He upholds me when I am down
 He brings me down when pride rises up
 He does all things for my good
 He knows what I need before I ask
 He answers before I speak the words
 I don’t have to worry
 I don’t have to be afraid
 I should not get offended
 I should not get hurt by words
 I don’t have to wonder
 What tomorrow may bring
 He knows my tomorrow
 He will take care of all things
 He takes time to know me
 Why don’t I take time for Him?
  
 Time is a gift
 A gift from our Father
 He gives us each moment, each day
 He gives us the sunshine and rain
 He gives us the sunrise and sunset
 He gives us the birds and their melodies
 To fill our days
 This day is the present
 My present
 I live in this time
 Right now
 Right here
 I have not been promised any more time
 Only today
 Only right now
 Only the present
 What I do with my time is up to me
 How I will live
 How I will speak
 How I will believe
 Is all up to me right now
 Not later but now
 He has given me this time
 And He takes time for me
 Why don’t I take time for Him

Never have I ever met one like you
