Two Things

There’s only two things you must know
To be all you can be
Thing one is His great mercy
Thing two is grace that’s free

Mercy reached out to touch our lives
When Jesus came from above
Took the form of a baby
Because of His great love

Mercy was with Him every day
As He healed all that would come
Taught the ways of the Kingdom
Truly was God’s Son

Mercy then took Him to the cross
Where He bled and died for me
Mercy rose Him up from the grave
So I’d live eternally

The greatest show of mercy
The world has ever seen
Is something I must know deep down
Because it was done for me

Grace has supplied my every need
From the moment I was born
From the fresh air that I breath each day
To the sunrise every morn

Grace followed us as we grew in years
For it truly gave us life
Each trial that we faced has passed
And grace helped us survive

Grace gave the greatest gift of all
When we asked the Savior in
By grace are you saved through faith my friend
It is grace that makes you win

This grace that’s so amazing
Grace always blesses me
He gives it freely to us
Supplying ever need

When you are looking out ahead
At what your life may bring
Make sure that grace and mercy
Are the most important things

Independence Day

Free from my doubt
Free from my shame
Free from my sin
Free from my pain
Free from a life
Full of disdain
Jesus has set me free

Free from my worry
Free from my fear
Free from my lust
Free from my tears
Free from the evil
That once lurked within
Jesus has set me free

He came looking for me when I was bound
He died on a cross in His blood my sin drowned
The day I chose Him as my Lord all the way
Was my Independence Day

Free from distrust
Free from my hate
Free from my anger
Free from bad days
Free from the pride
That once ruled my life
Jesus has set me free

Freedom to love
Freedom with joy
Freedom with peace
Forevermore
You can have freedom
In all of life’s storms
Let Jesus set you free

He came looking for me when I was bound
He died on a cross in His blood my sin drowned
The day I chose Him as my Lord all the way
Was my Independence Day

 

Keeping Me Safe

I walked alone for many years
Trying to find my way
It seemed I was going in circles
Life was just wasting away

I tried lots of different methods
Designed to bring me some joy
But each one turned to disaster
As my life was just further destroyed

Then one day I met the Savior
Who died on a cross for me
He took all my sins upon Him
And from guilt He set me free

Ever since that day I’ve been resting
In the Master’s loving embrace
There is no longer reason to look more
Because He always keeps me safe

I Rise

Out of the ashes
Out of the mire
Out of the dark
I rise

Out of my sin
Out of my guilt
Out of my shame
I rise

He lifted me up
Set my feet on the rock
I am washed by His blood
Forever

He guides me each day
His word lights my way
I’m safe and secure
In Him

Out of despair
Out of my past
Out of the lies
I rise

Out of bondage
Out of sorrow
Out of anger
I rise

He lifted me up
Set my feet on the rock
I am washed by His blood
Forever

He guides me each day
His word lights my way
I’m safe and secure
In Him

Jesus mighty Savior
Jesus lifted me
Pulled me up from darkness
I’m free
I’m free

Into His joy
Into His peace
Into His hope
I rise

Into His arms
Into His care
Into His love
I rise

Jesus mighty Savior
Jesus lifted me
Pulled me up from darkness
I’m free
I’m free
