Jesus Life

Nothing At All

What could I do to have sins erased
Nothing, Lord. Nothing at all
What did I do to deserve your grace
Nothing, Lord. Nothing at all

What can I offer that will set me free
Nothing, Lord. Nothing at all
What will you charge to rescue me
Nothing, Lord. Nothing at all

I have been ransomed. I’ve been redeemed
All for no charge you have forgiven me
All that you ask is that I give my life
Just as you gave yours for me

What is the charge for the blessing you give
Nothing, Lord. Nothing at all
What is the rent when in heaven I live
Nothing, Lord. Nothing at all

Free, Lord. You set me free
All for no charge you have forgiven me
Nothing I bring you. Nothing I have
Is worth what you’ve given to me

I have been ransomed. I’ve been redeemed
All for no charge you have forgiven me
All that you ask is that I give my life
Just as you gave yours for me

He was taken by a legion of soldiers in the middle of the night. An illegal court hearing was held where He was beaten and spit upon. They sent Him to Pilate where He was lashed 40 times. He had a crown of thorns pout on His head and was mocked and beaten by the guards. .He was offered up to be set free, but the crowd cried “Crucify Him.” He carried His own cross until the weight was too much and they had someone help Him. The nailed Him to that cross and set it upright. While hanging there, in the midst of that torture, he cried out “Father forgive them, for they know not what they do” Then he gave up Hie life for my sins. For my failures. To heal my diseases. I did nothing to earn my salvation and I can do nothing to buy His grace. Nothing at all. His mercy on my life is what rescued me. He gave that to me, and so much more, that day he died on the cross. Then He rose victorious and he is with me every day to guide me, watch over me, heals me, provide for me. All because He loves me. Despite my wretchedness, He loved me so much That He died for me. I did nothing to deserve His love. Nothing at all.

Isaiah 53:5-6 King James Version (KJV)
5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.

I Am So Glad For His Grace

I’m far from perfect need I dare say
So many times I have drifted away
My life’s in limbo day after day
I am so glad for His grace

I look at the cross which is where I should be
Then I remember that He died for me
From sin and shame He set me free
I am so glad for His grace

Grace that amazes. Grace that endures
Grace that my pardon from sin assures
Grace more then needed to cover my faults
Wonderful grace. Marvelous grace
I am so glad for His grace

I try to walk the best that I can
I try to hold on to His faithful hand
All that I desire is to stay in His plan
I am so glad for His grace

Often I stumble. Often I fall
Often I wonder why he loves me at all
Often I’m caught in the snare of defeat
But then His grace comes, sets me up on my feet

Grace that amazes. Grace that endures
Grace that my pardon from sin assures
Grace more than needed to cover my faults
Wonderful grace. Marvelous grace
I am so glad for His grace

I don’t deserve an ounce of His grace. Not one minute of His time should be spent on me because I so often just ignore what He asks me to do. I am disobedient, selfish, impatient, insufficient and ungrateful way too often. I know my life often does not please Him because there is sin at the door. I must be a disappointment to Him.

Yet, through all this, He sends His grace. He hears my prayer. He forgives me. He loves me. He dries tears. He calms my fears. He holds me close. He waits for me to turn back to Him. He is my refuge and strength. I do not have to worry when I get lost, He will find me. That’s what His grace is all about, and I am so thankful for grace.

2 Corinthians 12:9  King James Version
9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

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

Leave All Behind

Where could I go
What could I do
There’s nothing I want
But to follow you
There’s nothing I need
But your endless grace
You are my refugee
My sure hiding place
So I’ll run to you
And leave all behind

Only Jesus can satisfy my soul
Only Jesus can rid me of my sin
Only Jesus can give me life brand new
Only Jesus
Only Jesus

What would I do
If I had not found you
Waiting for me
To come to you
Your love reached out
Your mercy touched me
Now you can show
What I’m made to be
I’m in your hands
I leave all behind

Only Jesus can satisfy my soul
Only Jesus can rid me of my sin
Only Jesus can give me life brand new
Only Jesus
Only Jesus

I leave my sin my sorrow my shame
I leave my hurt my doubt and my pain
I leave my heart in your tender hands
I leave my life behind to follow you

Only Jesus can satisfy my soul
Only Jesus can rid me of my sin
Only Jesus can give me life brand new
Only Jesus
Only Jesus

His Wonderful Grace

What is it that keeps me coming back to God
What is it that makes me crave His vast and wonders love
What is it that assures me that He is enough
It’s his grace
His wonderful grace

What is it that removes all of my doubts and fears
What is it that dries my eyes and wipes away my tears
What is it that makes my worries all disappear
It’s his grace
His wonderful grace

I thank Him for the grace that He has shown to me
I thank Him for the grace that makes me what I need to be
I thank Him for the grace that caused my heart to see
His great grace
His wonderful Grace

I will sing His Praises my voice will raise up high
I will lift my hands and worship reaching for the sky
The world will know this grace as my words do testify
That He alone is Worthy
Worthy to be praised
He alone is Worthy
I’ll celebrate his grace
He alone is Worthy
One day soon I’ll see his face
All of this from His wonderful grace
