Not A Day Goes By

Oh Lord, how I need your power
Lord, how I need your strength
Oh Lord, how I need your wisdom
Every day
Every day

Oh Lord, how need your mercy
Lord, how I need your grace
Oh Lord, how I need the Spirit
Every day
Every day

Not a day goes by that I don’t need you
Showing me the way
Not a day goes by that I don’t get down
On my knees and pray
Not a day goes by that I don’t fall
You’re there to pick me up
You are with me
Every day
Right beside me
Every day

The Lord

The Lord is my strong tower
A refuge from the storm
When danger lurks about me
He keeps me from all harm

The Lord is my deliverer
When I call on His name
The enemy will flee from me
If I will seek His face

The Lord is my redeemer
My sin He has erased
Forever I will trust in Him
I’ll give Him all my praise

The Lord will fight my battles
When I obey His word
As long as I am seeking Him
His promises endure

The Lord is strong and mighty
The Lord is always near
The Lord will calm my doubts
The Lord will squash my fear

The Lord does reign forever
The Lord is above all
The Lord is King of Heaven
The Lord still hears my call

I will shout and sing
The praises of my king
For He will be my guide
He’s always at my side

What a precious Savior
The one that I adore
He showers me grace
Oh how I love the Lord

Mercy is All I Need

Lord how I need to cry out to you
In the middle of my distress
I cannot find rest
In the midst of this mess
Your mercy all that I need

Lord I have walked away from you
I cannot find peace for my soul
I’m desperate for you
Don’t know what I should do
Your mercy is all I need

Mercy is all I need
Mercy is all I need
My soul’s in your hands
Only you understand
The depth of the mercy I need

Then I hear your sweet voice calling out to me
Saying son I’ve forgiven your sins
Don’t give them a thought
Just turn and walk
Follow the path where I lead

I do not hold them against you
I do not tell them again
I do not see your sins anymore
To me you are sin free and clean

Mercy is all I need
Mercy is all I need
My soul’s in your hands
Only you understand
The depth of the mercy I need

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

Effective Prayer

I Come To You

My days are filled with great temptation
Sometimes I can’t resist
My flesh is weak
Your grace I seek
Out of despair I come to you

I don’t deserve to feel your presence
Yet every day your Spirit comes
You help me see
What I might be
If I will only come to you

I come to you to plead for mercy
I come to you to feel your love
I come to you seeking forgiveness
With all my heart I come to you

Down on my knees I plead for healing
My tears of sorrow touch the ground
My heart is spent
As I repent
My soul rejoices as I come to you

I come to you to plead for mercy
I come to you to feel your love
I come to you seeking forgiveness
With all my heart I come to you

I need your strength
I need your power
I need your joy
I need your peace
I need your love
I need your Spirit
All these will come when I come to you

I come to you to plead for mercy
I come to you to feel your love
I come to you seeking forgiveness
With all my heart I come to you

Jesus His Majesty

When I look at your face I see mercy
Hanging there on that cross
Because of your love and compassion
My sins and my shame have been washed

When I look in your eyes there’s compassion
Even though you are in pain
You suffered and died for my healing
By your stripes I have been saved

You poured out your life
You gave all you had
Mercy was granted to me
Marvelous Savior
Wonderful King
Jesus His Majesty

When I look at the cross there is grace
Looking right back at me
What a wonderful gift you have given
By your death I have been set free

You poured out your life
You gave all you had
Mercy was granted to me
Marvelous Savior
Wonderful King
Jesus His Majesty

Oh what love He has for me
Oh what love He has for me
Oh what love He has for me
Jesus His Majesty

You poured out your life
You gave all you had
Mercy was granted to me
Marvelous Savior
Wonderful King
Jesus His Majesty

He Could Have

He could have let me die
Swallowed by my sin
He could have left me trapped
By the demons deep within
He could have turned his back
On all my misery
He could have but He didn’t
By His grace He set me free

He could have kept his joy
And left me in despair
He could have kept his peace
And left my life impaired
He could have kept his hope
And left me with no plan
He could have but he didn’t
By His grace he took my hand

What great mercy
What great love
That sent my Savior weeping
To die upon a cross
What great mercy
What great love
He thought my life worth saving
His grace more than enough

He could have curbed my faith
So doubt would fill my mind
He could have withheld goodness
So that I would not be kind
He could have left me reeling
In sickness and disease
He could have but He didn’t
Instead he blesses me

What great mercy
What great love
That sent my Savior weeping
To die upon a cross
What great mercy
What great love
He thought my life worth saving
His grace more than enough

One day he will come back to welcome me home
He could have stayed in heaven and be worshipped on His throne
He chose to come and take for me the torture of the cross
He could have let me die in sin but instead He paid the cost

What great mercy
What great love
That sent my Savior weeping
To die upon a cross
What great mercy
What great love
He thought my life worth saving
His grace more than enough
