Great Disgrace

What else can I do but be myself
I cannot just copy somebody else
I have to rely on what the Lord has given me

But I often I think this life is hard
I try to pretend that I am smart
And now I am falling hard and no one will rescue me

Help me to see the path that I have walked
Help me to learn the voice that leads me to the dark
Help me to leave my foolish pride behind admitting my mistakes
And humbly bow before your throne in great disgrace

Have mercy, Lord, on me
I bow down at your feet and humbly plea
I didn’t listen.  I wasn’t wise
I could not see the enemy’s eyes
Have mercy, precious Lord, on me

Now I know what to do with this mess
I come to you now and I confess
Greed and alluring talk of grandeur led me astray

I will walk out of my despair
I will come up and small the air
You shine a light along my path to show me the way

You help me see the path that I have walked
You help me learn the voice that led me to the dark
You help me leave my foolish pride behind and look on up ahead
There you await with open arms and calm my fear

Have mercy, Lord on me
I bow down at your feet and humbly plea
I will now listen.  I’ll open my eyes
I will turn to you to help me be wise
Have mercy, precious Lord, on me

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
Grace & Mercy

Mercy Comes Softly

Mercy comes softly 
like a gentle rain in spring 
slowly shaping into our life 
To replenish us 
restore us 
renew us 
revive us

Mercy comes softly 
like a quiet breeze in the fall
bringing cool sensations of 
peace in my heart 
my soul 
my mind 
my spirit

Mercy comes softly
like a bubbling steam
flowing down the mountainside into a larger river 
filling it with
fresh life 
fresh nutrition 
fresh energy
fresh strength

Mercy comes softly
like a fluffy snow on a windless day
covering the earth all around us
cleaning all it falls upon
making it look fresh
unblemished
new
beautiful

Mercy some softly into our lives
Every minute of every day
Never leaving us helpless and alone
Guiding us
Shaping us
Protecting us
Providing for us

Don’t miss it
Treasure it
Recognize it when it comes
Give thanks to God
Lift up His name
He will lift you up and out
Of any trial
Any test
Any temptation
Because in the blink of an eye
When you list expect it
But most need it
His mercy will come
Softly

My Time of Need

All my doubts, all my worries, all my fears
I lay them down at your feet with my tears
Broken and ashamed
I cry out to your name
I know you’ll carry me all my years

Every day I know I go astray
It’s so easy to lose my way
As I sinner I plead
Getting down on my knees
That you’ll hear every word I pray

What a Savior you are, Lord Jesus
What a friend in my time of need
Every day that I live
I know you will give
Grace and mercy abundant and free

Mercy and Grace Never Fail

I have these muscles that tighten and cramp
My eyes see double or their focus is bad
It seems that old age is drowning my strength
This life brings so many ailments I’ve had 

Arthritis in my fingers brings pain every day
Quite often I cough when I eat way to fast
My feet ache when walking or standing to long
But none of these aches and pains will last

But your mercy and grace never fail
Your peace and your joy will always prevail
The hope that you give me brightens my days
The love that you have for me always will stay

All pains will one day be wiped away
As your healing takes over this body of clay
No tears will abide as I walk by your side
Forever I’ll be in your care

Because mercy and grace never fail
Your peace and your joy will always prevail
The hope that you give brightens my day
The love that you have for me always will stay

So, I’ll lift my hands forever
I’ll praise your name forever
I’ll walk with you forever
Precious Lord, you’ll always be mine (REPEAT)

Because mercy and grace never fail
Your peace and your joy will always prevail
The hope that you give brightens my day
The love that you have for me always will stay

The Gifts He Gave

When Mercy seems so distant
And grace seems way far off
I remember that your word says
There will always be enough

When my wand’ring ways lose sight
Of the path I should be on
Your mercy and your grace
Will bring me back unharmed

Mercy, oh sweet mercy
Grace, amazing grace
The gifts He gave upon that cross
Forever I am saved

I’ll always seek His mercy
His grace will be my aim
In all my tribulation
I will stop to give Him praise

Praise for His sweet mercy
Praise for all His grace
Amazing is His love for me
My sin is all erased

Longing To See His Face

Here I sit, wondering, when He will come
Longing to see His face
Until that day coines, I will sit here in faith
Rest in His arms of grace

All of my life has pointed to this
The struggle to find my way
I was lost in a sea of shame and doubt
‘Til my Savior came to stay

He met me when I was adrift in my sin
I did not know which way to turn
Then He cried out to me through the voice of a friend
And I welcomed Him in in return

Oh, the love that I felt that day I gave up
Oh, the peace that flooded my soul
I realized then He’d been there all along
When I finally gave Him control

I’m amazed that He’d love such a wretch like me
All broken and covered with scars
But His mercy reached out and came down from the cross
He accepted me and healed my heart

Now I wait for the hour that He will return
His promise will come true that day
I sit here and lift up my praise to the Lord
Longing to see His face

The Giver of Mercy

I find I have much unforgiveness
For things others have done in past times 
My mind is wrapped up with vengeance 
My heart has left love far behind

I can't seem to find strength to get over
The hurts and the pains of the past
Now bitterness knocks at my hearts door
And I'm not sure how long it will last

Then I think of the giver or mercy
The Savior who died on the cross 
If He could forgive me if my sin
Who am I to refuse the same thought?

Who am I to refrain from forgiving?
Who am I to hold onto a grudge?
Who am I to refuse to pass on
This gift I've received from my judge?

So I set out to ask true forgiveness
For all the past thoughts in my mind
One by one I approach those who hurt me
Even though they don't know what they've done

I become the giver of mercy
I become the reliever of sin
I become what the Father has longed for
To be like His only Son

Jesus came to this earth to forgive us
To wipe away all our offense
All He asks us for us to pass on
The great gift if mercy immense

Please don't hold onto hurts any longer
Be a giver of mercy to all
This is truly the will if the Father
This is how you can answer His call

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
