He Is With Me

He was with Abraham on his journey
He was with Jacob in the night
He was with Joseph in the prison
With Joshua in the fight

He was with Samuel when he whispered
He was with David against a giant
He was with Daniel giving visions
And in the den against the lion

He is with me. He is with me. Every hour of every day
He is with me. He is with me as my guide to show the way
He is with me giving strength. He is with me in His power
I know that I have Jesus. He is with me

He is with me showing mercy
He is with me showing grace
He is with me in my battles
He is with me when I pray

I can walk with great assurance
In the middle of the storm
Because I know the one who calms the sea
I can pray with expectation
That each prayer will be heard
His word says when I pray He’ll answer me

Don’t spend one more day without Him
Don’t spend one more hour without Him
Give it all. Give it all to Jesus

I can trust Him in every storm, in every test, in every trial and in every way. There is nothing that can separate me from His love. Not fire, not flood, not height or depth. No mountain or valley or strange event. When I come to Him, he will meet me where I am. If I am in sin, he will forgive me if I ask. If I am struggling he will pick me up and help me along. If I am crying he will dry my ears and comfort me. If I am troubled, he will say peace be still. There is nothing in life greater than knowing Jesus is right there loving me every minute of every day. What a joy it is to serve Him with all my heart and soul and mind and strength.

Psalm 16:8 King James Version (KJV)
8 I have set the LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.

You Can Do It

I walk through the valley alone and afraid
Not knowing what will appear
The shadows surround me and I lose my way
I finally succumb to my fear

I try to escape the darkness and gloom
The sin that has hold on my life
Then I hear you whisper as quiet as dew
My child don’t despair in this night

You can do it with my strength
You can do it through my grace
You can come through this quagmire of life
You can do it with me
As I give you mercy
Don’t despair when your lost in the night

Suddenly light shines around me
The path becomes clear up ahead
Once again I know God walks beside me
I am sure I have nothing to dread
As He speaks

You can do it with my strength
You can do it through my grace
You can come through this quagmire of life
You can do it with me
As I give you mercy
Don’t despair when your lost in the night

Sometimes I get myself into situations that make me cringe. Why did I travel down this road? Why do I get lost in this sin? I brought myself here. Yes, the devil lured me in with His temptations and I succumbed to him, just as Adam and Eve did in the garden. He asks me the same question he asked them on that fateful day. “Did God really say you can’t do that?” When I give any thought to that question, I am in trouble. I know the word well enough to know right and wrong. Yet I walk off the path all too often. I am so glad God is always right thee to bring me back to the path of life. He gives me the strength and the grace to once again walk with Him. Lord, let me stay on this path you have laid out for me! Help me to stay in the light.

Psalm 91:2-3 King James Version (KJV)
2 I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.
3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.

What A Wondrous Love for Me

Lord I often marvel 
At what you’ve done for me
Since I first received
Your mercy

Lord I often wonder
How you could hear me pray
Or why you’d take my place
And give me grace
 
What a wondrous love for me 
What a wondrous love for me 
Jesus you’re my everything 
What a wondrous love for me 


Can you even begin to comprehend what Jesus did for you on that cross?  I start to list all that He accomplished and run out of words so quickly.   I mean, didn’t He do enough when He was alive?  He told us of our purpose here on this earth.  We are the salt of the earth and the light of the world.  We will do greater things than He did. Greater than raising the dead,  cleansing the lepers, greater than opening blinded eyes or causing the lane to walk?   It is hard to imagine,  but that’s what He said.

But when He died on that cross, He fully paid the price for our sins. His stripes brought healing, our peace was secured, our salvation was procured and His joy endured.  His amazing love for us was displayed for all of time. What a blessed assurance we have in Him

 

 

You Are There For Me

When all seems lost and I’m all alone
You are there for me
When times get hard and I lose my hope
You are there for me

CHORUS
That’s when I trust in your mercy
That’s when I trust in your grace
That’s when I place my life in your hands
I know that you love me so

When I can’t seem to find my way home
You are there for me
When My path seems to always roam
You are there for me

CHORUS

BRIDGE
You are my everlasting Father
You’re my desire and my strength
You are the one that I long for
Every day!

CHORUS

END

You Amaze Me

Out of the ashes. Out of the night
Out of the darkness. I come to you

Out of my sin. Out of my pain
Out of my weakness. I come to you

CHORUS
You wait for me to come to you
I stand amazed at your great love
You died for me when I was lost
What a gracious God you are
What a gracious God you are

Into your presence. Into your light
Into your Spirit. I come to you

You amaze me
You amaze me
You amaze me by your mercy Lord (REPEAT)

CHORUS

I Want to Go

I want to go where I see His face
I want to go where I feel His pain
I want to go where I hear His voice
I want to go to the cross

I want to go where His mercy flows
I want to go where His love arose
I want to go where His life was given
I want to go to the cross

CHORUS
At the cross He gave His life
As a sacrifice for me
So that I could spend my life with Him
In eternity

At the cross He took my sin and doubt
So that I could shout I’m free
I will bow before the Lamb of God
Jesus, Jesus

I want to go where my debt was paid
I want to go where my life was saved
I want to go where my prayers were heard
I want to go to the cross

CHORUS

All my praise to Him
All my heart I give
All my love
All my worship to Him (Repeat)

CHORUS

The Believers Life

Your Love Was Enough

My will was not enough
To wipe away my sin
But your love was enough
To wash me deep within

I could not calm myself
And find an inner peace
But your love was enough
To set my heart at ease

I rarely left my sorrow
To find an life of joy
But your love was enough
To make my heart rejoice

I looked out to the future
And found my hope was gone
But your love was enough
To make my future strong

Your love was enough
For you sent your only Son
To die for me that day
On the sting of Calv’ry’s cross

Your love was enough
When you rose Him from the dead
I’m no longer bound for hell
But heavens home instead

Your love was enough
For you covered me with grace
Your mercy touched my heart
And all my past erased

I’m a new man now
And your love has captured me
Your love is enough
So that yours I’ll always be

Help Me To Know You More

As I woke from my sleep this morning
I lifted your name
Your wonderful name

My voice shouted hallelujah
Your worthy of praise
All of my days

Then I thought of your grace
Amazing grace
Wonderful grace to me

Mighty God
Why do you love me so
Watch me and help me grow
All of the grace you show
Mighty God
I am in awe of you
Help me to know you more
Help me to know you more

He Watches Over You

He knows my doubts, my fears and my sorrows
He knows the way I will go tomorrow
He’s always there
Showing me care
He watches over me

Even when my feet will stumble and fall
He is right there to hear my faint call
He’ll forgive me
Of all my misdeeds
He watches over me

CHORUS
There’s not a day that goes by
That He is not at my side
His love will always abide
I can trust in Him
I can trust in Him

He is so faithful and always true
He’ll never leave or abandon you
Trust in His love
He’s always enough
He watches over you

CHORUS

BRIDGE
In my struggles
In my weakness
In my sickness
He’s there for me
In my wand’ring
In my doubting
In my hurting
He’s there for me

CHORUS

Mercy Finds Me

When the world closes in around me
And sin’s lying at the door
It is then that I call on His mercy
To restore
Make me whole

When I’ve wandered away from His presence
And I can’t find my way back home
It is then that His mercy finds me
Wraps His arms
Around my form

CHORUS
Oh what tender grace He shows me
Oh what mercy He bestows
On what love my Savior has for me
All my life I can rest in Him

When my world closes in around me
And the struggle is hard to bear
It is then that I cry out for mercy
Endlessly
He repairs

CHORUS

BRIDGE
Mercy unending
Grace forevermore
That’s what Jesus lavishes on me
For eternity

CHORUS
