God Brought a Friend

When I need a kind word, you are there
When I need a smile, you are there
When I wake up in the morning
When I go to sleep at night
I know you are there for me

God brought a friend, a faithful friend
He knew my need and filled it
I cannot thank my God enough
He brought a friend like you

When my day gets tired and lonely, you are there
When I need someone to talk to, you are there
When I find a little time
When I need some sunshine
I know you are there for me

God brought a friend, a faithful friend
He knew my need and filled it
I cannot thank my God enough
He brought a friend like you

I know that God has purposes for all He gives to us
I know He puts all things in place to turn out for my good
So, I will put my faith in Him a little more today
For He has brought a friend like you help me on my way

God brought a friend, a faithful friend
He knew my need and filled it
I cannot thank my God enough
He brought a friend like you

Astounding Grace

I am not forsaken.  I will not give up
I found my strength in Jesus. He is enough
Though Satan storms against me I will not turn aside
I will stand strong in the battle with Jesus by my side

It seems old Satan tries every means he can
To turn me from my Savior so I will trust in man
I will not be deceived by all His trickery
I’ll turn my heart to God for He’s my victory

Right now I call on Jesus and all the host of heaven
To come and hold me up in the comfort of His hand
The enemy seems strong but God is stronger still
I’ll fight on through this trial and heed my Saviors will

And when I gain the victory I’ll lift my hands in praise
To my precious loving Father who filled me with His grace
I’ll worship Him for giving me the mercy that I need
When Satan comes against me I’ll be found down on my knees

On my knees to pray for deliverance each day
On my knees to offer up my life to Jesus way
On my knees to praise Him for Her will show the way
On my knees before His throne astounded by His grace

For victory can only come when I am on my knees
The enemy is helpless when my cries to God increase
And even if it seems that my prayers have not been heard
I will stay down on my knees and trust His holy word

I know He won’t forsake me.  I know He won’t depart
I know that His great joy and peace will come and soothe my heart
I know without a doubt that all things work for good 
I know that Jesus loves me and my prayers He understood

Thank you Lord for giving me this peace within my soul
Thank you Lord for mercy when the devil seemed so bold
Thank you Lord for showing me your astounding grace
This day and every day I will lift your name in praise

The Mercy That I Seek

Somewhere in the darkest night He’s waiting
Waiting for my praise to rise to Him
Somewhere in my deepest need He answers
Filling me with His amazing grace
Somewhere in my heart there is a witness 
Urging me to bring more souls to Him
Somewhere in my weakness He will strengthen
Sending me to sow the seeds of faith

I just need to cry out
I just need to listen
I just need to hear Him when He speaks
I just need to praise Him
I just need to worship
He will give the mercy that I seek

How amazing is our God
Oh, how gracious is His love
Oh, how wonderful He is each day to me
All my worship and my praise
All to Him In Jesus name
What a savior, what a friend indeed

Mercy Now Is Mine

 His mercy overflows
 Into my heart and soul
 Awakening my heart
 Mercy will not depart
 Enduring for all time
 Great mercy now is mine
 Redeeming me from sin
 Delivers me again
 I know His love is sure
 His mercy does endure
 My hope will rest in Him
 With mercy I will win
 Nothing will take away
 This love I feel today
 For mercy now is mine
 And will be for all time

Grace is Greater

 His grace is greater
 Than all my troubles
 He watches o’er me
 When I fall down
  
 His grace is greater
 Than all my weakness
 He keeps me floating
 When I could drown
  
 His grace is greater
 Than all my struggles
 He walks beside me
 When I’m alone
  
 His grace is greater
 Than my temptations
 He speaks so softly
 And gives me hope
 Just enough for today
 And not for tomorrow
 Yesterday’s grace is gone
 Day after day
 Like the manna from heaven
 I have to depend on Him
  
 Grace, grace, Great grace
 Greater than all my life could need
 Grace, grace
 God’s grace
 Grace that is greater than anything. 

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
