You Haven’t Given Up On Me

I often wonder how you found me when I was in sin
Your word says you can't look upon the filth that lied within
Yet somehow you looked through my mess and saw my troubled soul 
You reached out and you touched my heart.  By your blood I was made whole

I often wonder how you stay with such a wretch as me
Who, even though you've touched me, still to sin i often flee
Such love I can't imagine that would cover ally shame
That's why each day I lift my hands and praise your holy mane

Jesus, precious Jesus
I'm so glad you haven't given up on me
Jesus, precious Jesus
You will carry me along to victory

I often wonder why you love me even when I fall
You come and pick me up again and then you forgive all
Your mercy still amazes me and I stand in awe of grace
As I humble seek your presence and I yearn to see your face

Jesus, precious Jesus
I'm so glad you haven't given up on me
Jesus, precious Jesus
You will carry me along to victory

You hold me
You love me
You heal me
You deliver me
You free me
You save me
You carry me to victory 

Right Here

I’m down in a whole in deepest despair
I feel like I’m drowning an gasping for air
I’m filled up with sorrow
No hope for tomorrow 
This life seems to get me nowhere

Then I heard of your love, your mercy and grace
I bowed on my knees in deepest disgrace
I cried out forgive me
You heard my hearts plea
Then you lifted me out of that miry clay

Thank you, Jesus for your love
Thank you, Jesus for your love
You left your throne above to die for me
Thank you. Jesus for your grace
All your blessings I embrace
How I long to give you praise eternally

Now I walk in your Spirit every day
And I talk with you softly as I go my way
You’re here with me in a wonderful way
You’re here with me in a wonderful way
I don’t have to worry, I don’t have to fear
For when I cry out, you are right here

Right here to save me. Right here to heal me. Right here to love me
You are right here.
Right here to lead me.  Right here to hear me.  Right here to deliver
You are right here

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
Effective Prayer

 Even when I cannot hear your voice
 I'll praise your name
  
 Even when I'm lonely
 Even when I cannot feel your touch

 I will praise you

 For you are worthy of my praise
  
 Even when I'm troubled

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
