More Than Faithful

If the waves should start crashing around me
And the Stars would fall down from the sky
I would still look my hands and praise thee
For you are the one who gives life

If my friends should all decide to leave me
And my body would be filled with pain
I will still lift my voice to praise thee
Or you will restore me again

You are more than faithful to me
By your grace you have forgiven me
When life is a mess
And I’m filled with stress
Your mercy is all that I need

If I find myself down on my knees
Crying out “Oh Lord How can this be?”
I know you will hear my heart’s cry
You are more than faithful to me

In all my trials
In all my tests
In all my anguish
In you I can rest
In every sorrow
You are my joy
Your faithfulness
Relieves my soul

You are more than faithful to me
By your grace you have forgiven me
When life is a mess
And I’m filled with stress
Your mercy is all that I need

Follow Jesus

I have decided
To put my sin behind
To clean this filthy mind
Let light remove the blinds
And follow Jesus

I have determined
My path has gone astray
That I have lost my way
Please turn me back today
And follow Jesus

He is the way the truth the light
His is the only way that’s right
He’ll turn my darkness into light
Jesus only Jesus

Mercy is All I Need

Lord how I need to cry out to you
In the middle of my distress
I cannot find rest
In the midst of this mess
Your mercy all that I need

Lord I have walked away from you
I cannot find peace for my soul
I’m desperate for you
Don’t know what I should do
Your mercy is all I need

Mercy is all I need
Mercy is all I need
My soul’s in your hands
Only you understand
The depth of the mercy I need

Then I hear your sweet voice calling out to me
Saying son I’ve forgiven your sins
Don’t give them a thought
Just turn and walk
Follow the path where I lead

I do not hold them against you
I do not tell them again
I do not see your sins anymore
To me you are sin free and clean

Mercy is all I need
Mercy is all I need
My soul’s in your hands
Only you understand
The depth of the mercy I need

Mercy Never Gives Up

I’m not sure why you put up with me
I am not always following you
I turn to the left
Or I turn to the right
I’m ashamed of the things that I do

Yet in the midst of my wandering
Your Spirit still seems to work
He straightens my steps
Puts me back on the path
So I’m running right back to you

Your mercy never gives up on me
Never rests on my behalf
I know I can trust
In your wonderful love
To draw me closer to you

Forgive me Lord my transgression
Help me move past all of my sin
My desire is for you
For your love is true
And your mercy never gives up

Effective Prayer

I Come To You

My days are filled with great temptation
Sometimes I can’t resist
My flesh is weak
Your grace I seek
Out of despair I come to you

I don’t deserve to feel your presence
Yet every day your Spirit comes
You help me see
What I might be
If I will only come to you

I come to you to plead for mercy
I come to you to feel your love
I come to you seeking forgiveness
With all my heart I come to you

Down on my knees I plead for healing
My tears of sorrow touch the ground
My heart is spent
As I repent
My soul rejoices as I come to you

I come to you to plead for mercy
I come to you to feel your love
I come to you seeking forgiveness
With all my heart I come to you

I need your strength
I need your power
I need your joy
I need your peace
I need your love
I need your Spirit
All these will come when I come to you

I come to you to plead for mercy
I come to you to feel your love
I come to you seeking forgiveness
With all my heart I come to you

The Believers Life

What A Savior, What a Friend

Forgiven
Set free
That’s what Jesus did for me
I was lost in sin
No peace within
When Jesus rescued me

In darkness
Was my life
Then He showed me the light
Now He guides me
Satisfies me
Turns away my darkest night

What a Savior
What a friend
I will praise Him once again
I will lift His name on high
He is worthy glorified
What a Savior
What a friend
Jesus

Through and Through

I can’t explain His mercy
I can’t explain His grace
I can’t explain the love He has for me
For when I was a sinner
Didn’t even know He cared
He left His throne to come and rescue me

I was lost and lonely
Drowning in despair
My life was heading down a wicked road
A still small voice then spoke
It called to me that day
I knew that there was nowhere else to go

What a wondrous Savior
What a faithful friend
That He would love me just the way I am
I knelt before the altar
I gave my life to Him
That day the road I travelled led to Him

Today I try to serve Him
With all my heart and soul
But often I will stumble and will fall
He treats me with compassion
He shows His grace to me

I understand He loves me
But I cannot explain
Why He would forgive the things I do
I’ll rest here in His mercy
I’ll rest here in His grace
Because I know He loves me through and through
