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

You Are Enough For Me

 When I am down, you pick me up
 When I am dry, you fill my cup
 When I am lost, you give me hope
 You are enough for me
  
 When I have sorrow, you give me joy
 When I’m in doubt, your faith I employ
 When there are storms, you fill me with peace
 You are enough for me
  
 When I had nothing, you came along
 When I was sad, you gave me a song
 When I get lonely you whisper to me
 You are enough for me
  
 You are enough, more than enough
 You are enough for me
 All this world offers will never fulfill
 The needs that well up in me
 When I turn to you, I find I am full
 Because you are enough for me
  
 Through terror and fear
 Through troubles and tears
 You always come through for me
 Through trials and tests
 You know what is best
 Because you are enough for me
  
 Stay close to me, Jesus
 Stay right by my side
 I’ll try my hardest to always abide
 And when I should wander
 To left or to right
 You’ll guide me back on the path
 Because you are enough for me’
  
 Your grace is enough
 Your mercy enough
 Your peace is enough
 Your joy is enough
 Your hope is enough
 Your strength is enough
 Your healing enough
 Your love is enough
 Yes, you are enough for me 

Darkness Can Not Stay

 I saw the Light.
 It shone in my heart,
 And darkness fled before it.
 Where the Light shines in my life
 Darkness cannot stay.
 Oh, Lord
 Help me open all the doors in my life to your Light.
 Help me allow all my darkness to be purged
 By your glorious Light.
 The Light of your word will heal
 The Light of your word will deliver me
 The Light of your word will set me free
 The Light of your word will bring me peace
 The Light of your word will bring me Joy
 The Light of your word will help me love my neighbor as myself
 The Light of your word brings me life abundantly
 Open the eyes of my heart, Lord
 So that I may see your glorious Light.
 So darkness will be removed from my life
 And I will walk with you every moment of everyday.

It’s All Good

 When I come up against an ocean of fear
 And doubt surrounds me like the enemy
 There is nowhere to turn for escape
 There is nowhere to hide
 Defeat seems imminent
 I hear you say
 It’s all good
  
 When the trials are hotter than I can stand
 And the lion is waiting in his den
 There is no hope for relief
 There is nowhere to run
 Death is right around the corner
 I hear you say
 It’s all good
  
 I turned the sea to dry land
 I turned air into manna
 I turned water into wine
 I turned bones into flesh
 I turned walls into rubble
 I turned death to life
 I turned all these things before
 I can turn them again
  
 So when all seems lost
 And there’s nothing left to do
 Turn to Jesus
 Turn to prayer                       
 Turn to peace
 Turn to joy
 Turn to hope
 Because in the end
 No matter what it looks like now
 No matter how bad it might seem
 No matter what you think
 God says it’s all good 

Forever I Am Yours

 I don’t know why you love me Lord
 But you do.  Yes, you do
 I don’t know why you love me
 But you do.
  
 I’m not a model citizen for heaven
 So many things I don’t deserve
 Yet you have given me your mercy
 You’ve given me a heart that’s pure
  
 The love you’ve shown me has saved me
 From every trial that I might face
 By faith I’ll follow in your footsteps
 I know I’ll never lose your grace
  
 I don’t know why you saved me Lord
 But you did.  Yes you did.
 I don’t know why you saved me Lord
 But you did
  
 I know you’ve called me out of darkness
 So I can show the world your holy light
 I pray my life will be a witness
 Of your redeeming sacrifice
  
 You took on the stripes, the curses of man
 The crown on your head and the nails in your hands
 You carried your cross to calvary’s hill
 You gave up your life so I could be filled
 With your love.  Hallelujah
 Hallelujah.  Hallelujah
  
 I don’ know why you love me
 But you do.  I know you do
 I don’t know why you saved me
 But you did.  Oh Yes, you did
 Your love has saved me forever
 Your love has saved me forever
 Your love has saved me forever
 Forever I am your, forever I am yours! 

I’ve Got To Rise

There are times that I get down
From the trials of this life
It is then I realize
I’ve got to rise
 
It seems I am in a pit
And the grave is not too far
I gaze up into the skies
I’ve got to rise
 
Rise up from the ashes
Rise up from the deep
Rise up from the sin that weighs me down
Rise up from my torment
Into His loving arms
Jesus stands there waiting
Holding out His hand
I gaze into His eyes and rise up
 
I can see a brighter future
But there’s one thing I must do
I must take back my life
I’ve got to rise
 
Only by His power
Only by His blood
Only by the Spirit of the Lord
Rising out of darkness
Into glorious light
Rising out of bondage
Into free delight
I’ve got to rise
I’ve got to rise
 
Rise up from the ashes
Rise up from the deep
Rise up from the sin that weighs me down
Rise up from my torment
Into His loving arms
Jesus stands there waiting
Holding out His hand
I gaze into His eyes and rise up

Shall The Dead Arise?

Based on Psalm 88:10a “Shall the dead arise to praise him”

I was dead
Wrapped up in sin
Held back by doubt
Darkness was all around me
I could not see where to go next
I could not imaging getting free
God was quiet
I wondered if He even heard my cries
I felt so alone
So far away
Like a dead man in the grave
Stinking with sin
No hope
No future
No life
 
Then Jesus came
Commanded the stone be rolled away
And it was
Light flooded into the room
My sin exposed
My shame announced
Blinded by the light
I covered my eyes
I could not stand before Him
The sinless Son of God
I was not worthy to even approach Him
I smelled of death
I walked like death
Sin all over me
No power
No strength
Ashamed
 
Then He cried out
“Come Forth”
His power stood me up
His love started my feet to moving
Still wrapped in my sin
I could not hold back
I could not stay where I was
I had to come out
Out of that grave
Out of that sin
Out of that death
Into the brightness of His glory’
His mercy
His grace
Then He said
”Unwrap Him”
The bindings of sin started to unravel
I could feel the weight slip off of me
I could feel the freedom all over me
I was free
Free
Free from sin
Free from doubt
Free from fear
No longer bound
Basking in the light of His love
Drinking of the living water
Drawing from the well
No more pain
No more suffering
No more darkness
No more shame
 
Then I praised Him
I thanked Him
I gave Him all the glory
Shall the dead arise?
Indeed they shall!
They shall arise to praise Him
Arise to bring Him honor
Arise by the power of His mercy
His grace
His love
Shout His praise
Shout
The victory is ours
The stone has rolled away
The bondage is all erased
I am free!
Jesus Life

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.
