How Gracious he Is To Me

 His mercy and grace wash over me
 Like a cleansing stream from Calvary
 His stripes and His blood have set me free
 How gracious He is to me
  
 He heals and delivers from every sin
 Sends His Holy Spirit to dwell within
 What a glorious friend I have in Him
 How gracious He is to me
  
 CHORUS
 Oh, how I love Him
 Oh, how I need Him
 Oh, how I love Him so
 Jesus my Savior
 Gracious redeemer
 He is the answer to all of my question
 How gracious He is to me
 How gracious He is to me
  
 He sets my feet on higher ground
 He gives me joy that always abounds
 I am so glad that I have found
 How gracious He is to me
  
 CHORUS
 
 BRIDGE
 He picks me up when I fall
 He holds my hand and leads me
 He never leaves me alone
 He is always near
 He is always near
  
 CHORUS 

In Your Arms

 I have travelled here and there
 But I can’t find anywhere
 That is more reassuring than your arms
 I have seen some gorgeous sights
 But you are my guiding light
 I can’t find a better place than in your arms
  
 In your arms I’m safe from danger
 In your arms I find my peace
 In your arms no enemy can bring me harm
 In your arms I am no stranger
 In your arms I know your grace
 I can’t find a better place than in your arms
  
 Now each day I look to you
 For you show me what to do
 As I walk the path you planned for me
 I can know all things are good
 I have finally understood
 That your arms are where I truly need to be
  
 In your arms your mercy rests
 In your arms my healing lies
 In your arms there is no reason for alarm
 In your arms I’m always blessed
 In your arms I’ll never die
 I can’t find a better place than in your arms

Your Great Love for me

As i look at all you’ve done for me
My heart explodes with love
This undeserving sinner
Knows that you have done enough
And if all of your great mercy
Were to ens this very day
I would atill lift up my voice ro you
And give you all my praise

Great God of grzce and holiness
You’ve made my heart brand new
I think about all you have done
And draw my strength from you
My prayers are always heard by you
You answer ecery time
All that I am and will become
Comes from your great supply

Great God of peace and joyfulness
I come to you today
And ask that you will hear my cry
And gyide me on my way
I don’t deserve all that you’ve done
I don’t deserve your grace
But you have sent yoir only Son
He came to take my place

So i will lift my voice to you
My worship I will give
Because you have redeemed my soul
You’ve given me this gift
All of my days I’ll lift your name
All of my days I’ll give my praise
All of my days I’ll celebrate
Your great love for me

Oh, Lord Most High

 Oh, Lord most High, you are merciful
 You brought me out of the grave
 I was dead in my transgressions
 Then all of my sins you forgave
  
 Oh, Lord Most High, you are gracious
 You pour out your blessings on me
 Peace and joy, hope and love are all mine
 As my heart is laid down at your feet
  
 Or, Lord most High, you are patient
 There is so much you want me to change
 My life is still not quite perfect
 My priorities you rearrange
  
 Oh, Lord most High, you are loving
 Despite my enduring pride
 You allow these trials and temptations
 So that only in you I can hide
  
 Oh, Lord most High, you are holy
 My desire is to be more like you
 Take my heart, my soul and my spirit
 Show me what you want me to do
  
 Oh, Lord most High, you are worthy
 The praise of my lips I will give
 I will bow down at your footstool
 And love you as long as I live 

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 

Safe in the Arms of God

 I found a place, a quiet place
 Where I could rest, where I feel blessed
 No enemy could harm me there
 Safe in the arms of God
  
 I found a song deep in my heart
 That lifted up to heaven’s hearth
 I hope I never will depart
 Safe in the arms of God
  
 There is no reason to despair
 No trouble can alarm me here
 My refuge and my fortress near
 Safe in the arms of God
  
 A place of grace boundless and free
 A place where mercy covers me
 A place I’ll live eternally
 Safe in the arms of God
  
 Come join me in this joyful place
 Come look at His adoring face
 Come know His mercy and His grace
 Safe in the arms of God 

Come Quickly

 I have fallen
 I am broken
 I feel lost and all alone
 Left His mercy
 Just to please me
 How on earth can I atone
  
 I disobeyed
 And I betrayed
 The love He showed to me
 I come humbly
 Seeking mercy
 To the cross of calvary
  
 Lord, forgive me for my failure
 Lord, forgive my selfishness
 Come, Lord Jesus, please come quickly
 Help me once again feel blessed
  
 Now He’s speaking
 He is hearing
 My heartfelt plea today
 He forgives me
 Shows His mercy
 I lift my hands in praise
  
 Lord, restore me in my weakness
 Lord, restore my heart for you
 Thank you that you have come quickly
 Now I know your will I’ll do
  
 Once again He has forgiven
 Once again he has restored
 Once again His mercy wins out
 All my heart is yours my Lord 

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!

Unite My Heart

My heart is divided, Lord
I am undone
I know that I’ve failed you
This cannot go on
When my fear of you falters
The enemy’s won
Lord, please unite my heart
 
One side wants to serve you
Giving you praise
My fleshly heart falters
And wanders away
All this division
Keeps me in a daze
Lord, please unite my heart
 
CHORUS
When I put it together you can use me.  Use me.
When I no longer wander from your presence. Your presence
There is nothing I can’t do
That you have called me to
You will hear me when I pray
I will hear the words you say
I’ll no longer walk away from you,
Oh Lord, my God
 
My heart is wide open
Come to me now
I need your forgiveness
Please touch me now
Only by your mercy’
Only by your grace
Lord, please unite my heart
 
CHORUS
 
One side wants to praise you
The other wants to sin
One side wants forgiveness
The other lies again
One side wants your mercy
Implores to find your grace
Come and turn my fleshly heart
To give you all the praise
 
CHORUS
