I Chose Jesus

When I was young I made a lot of choices
Some good, some bad and some fell in between
I really didn’t know
Which way that I should go
I wandered through my life quite aimlessly

Through drugs and alcohol my journey took me
Wild women and a lot of lonely nights
I couldn’t find my way
Sank lower every day
Until I couldn’t see the dark from light

Then an old friend invited me to visit
Across the country travelling I went
It’s then I met his friend
On whom he did depend
I made a choice that’s been mine ever since

I chose Jesus
From a missionaries’ words
I chose Jesus
He convinced me I was lost
I chose Jesus
I had no desire to live my life that way
I chose Jesus
He has filled me with His love
I chose Jesus
His sweet spirit leads the way
I chose Jesus
Now I choose Him each and every day

Now I have a wife and family beside me
Many friends encourage me along the way
With Jesus as my choice
He is my inner voice
I strive to take in very word He says

I choose Jesus
As the one that I will love
I choose Jesus
He will guide me from above
I choose Jesus
I will follow Him wherever He may lead
I choose Jesus
Won’t you come along with me
I choose Jesus
Make Him the one you seek
I choose Jesus
He will fill all your desires and your needs

Soothing my mind

Precious are you Lord
Words can’t describe
How much I love you
I’m glad you are mine

Entangled In You

I Him I live
He is my source
He provides all that I need
Strength in my weakness
Joy in my sorrow
Faith in my times of doubt
Peace in the storms
Truth when I worry
All of my fears He removes with His love
He is my source of life

In Him I move
He has the plan
That will bring me a glorious end
Answers to questions
Guidance each day
His Spirit leads me to the truth
Holding my hand
Carrying me
When the steps are too hard to take
I only move when He moves

I have my being
Only in Christ
Grace that’s Amazing
Mercy that’s free
He paid the price on the cross
Poured out His spirit
Setting me free
I owe Him my life for eternity
I only will be where He is

My glorious Savior
My wonderful Lord
My life is entangled in you
There’s no place on earth
That I’d rather be
Than safe in your loving arms

In you I live and move
And have my being
You are my Heavenly Father
All I desire
You have provided
Your child I will always be

I Can’t Begin

I can’t begin to say how much I love Him
The one who came from high in heaven above
He gave His life for me
When He died upon that tree
I’m a demonstration of His awesome love

I cant begin to say how much He helps me
As I go about my business day to day
He guides me as I go
Gently leading me to know
The plan He has for me when I obey

Merciful Savior
So good to me
I lift my praise to you
Honor and power
Glory forever
Unto your name is due

I can’t begin to know how much He loves me
His grace has covered all my sin and shame
He is the King of Kings
Yet He gives me everything
I lift my hands to worship His sweet name

Merciful Savior
So good to me
I lift my praise to you
Honor and power
Glory forever
Unto your name is due

My words of praise are lifted to you
High upon the throne
My voice declares your majesty
I worship you alone

Merciful Savior
So good to me
I lift my praise to you
Honor and power
Glory forever
Unto your name is due

Our Guide in the Night

There’s a light at the end of the tunnel
It shines like a star far away
As I walk through this valley of sickness
The light helps me find my way

I know He has promised me healing
That the stripes on His back paid the price
I am waiting to see
That healing in me
As I walk through the trial of this life

Glory to God in the Highest
Who gave us His son Jesus Christ
I will lift up that name
That wonderful name
He’s the Light that guides in the night

We all have a tunnel to go through
At some moment in each of our lives
His promise is that He’ll be with us
Through the low times as well as the highs

He said He will leave His peace with us
He gave us abundant joy
In the midst of the storm
I won’t be alarmed
I know Jesus is right by my side

Glory to God in the Highest
Who gave us His son Jesus Christ
I will lift up that name
That wonderful name
He’s the Light that guides in the night

Before

Before I rise from sleep
Before the day begins
Before I take one step
I’m going to talk to Him

Before I think of work
Before I plan my day
Before I fix my hair
I’ll ask Him for His way

Jesus knows what this day brings
Before it even starts
If I will place my trust in Him
His peace will rule my heart
When trouble rears its ugly head
I will not lose my joy
Because my faith is anchored sure
He’ll go before the storm

Before my thoughts get full
Before my worries soar
Before my plans are set
I’ll look to His true Word

Before I take a sip
Before one bite goes down
Before my news is read
I’ll turn to His sweet sound

Jesus knows what this day brings
Before it even starts
If I will place my trust in Him
His peace will rule my heart
When trouble rears its ugly head
I will not lose my joy
Because my faith is anchored sure
He’ll go before the storm

He knows the plans He has for me
Plans for good to build my faith
Whatever comes what trials may fall
He knows before to guide my way

Everywhere I Go

I’m enjoying my life on this journey
With a peace in the depth of my soul
For I know that my Savior is with me
Everywhere I go

When the trials of life overtake me
I can still keep His joy in my heart
For I know that the spirit will guide me
Everywhere I go

What a wonderful Savior, a glorious Lord
That would take of His time to be with me
Oh What grace He bestows and His mercy abounds
Every day that I’m on this journey

When I come to the end of my journey
I’m assured that I’ll be close to Him
For I know that He’ll travel beside me
Everywhere I go

When I walk with Him
All my troubles seem small
All my burdens are light
All my worries will fall
There’s a peace that endures
And a joy that’s sublime
So wherever I go
He walks right beside

What a wonderful Savior, a glorious Lord
That would take of His time to be with me
Oh What grace He bestows and His mercy abounds
Every day that I’m on this journey

All The Day Long

Gently laying on my bed
Pillow nestling weary head
By His hand He wisely led
All the day long

Closing tired eyes to sleep
Falling into night so deep
Knowing He my soul did keep
All the day long

Sun awakens as I rise
Looking to the eastern skies
He will brighten waking eyes
All the day long

Hours are filled with things to do
Giving joy to me and you
He has plans forever new
All the day long

Constantly amazed by grace
Looking for His loving face
Lifting up my voice in praise
All the day long

What a Savior what a King
Walks with me through everything
He deserves the praise I sing
All the day long

Time has swiftly passed away
Night has overtaken day
He has been my Rock and stay
All the day long

In Your Embrace

My life is like a winding trail
That wanders to and fro
Sometimes I am so close to God
And other times I fall
I want my walk much deeper
So He will be my all
Draw me to your side, Oh God

Close to you by your side
In your love I will abide
Holding fast to your sweet grace
Staying close in your embrace

Guide my path keep me near
Your calm voice I long to hear
Gentle Lamb and Kind of Kings
Christ alone my everything

I don’t want to wander
Through this life anymore
I want to follow closely
To the path set by my Lord
Help me God to hear you
And to follow where you lead
That I may always be where I belong

Close to you by your side
In your love I will abide
Holding fast to your sweet grace
Staying close in your embrace

Guide my path keep me near
Your calm voice I long to hear
Gentle Lamb and Kind of Kings
Christ alone my everything

His Watchful Ear

You go your way I’ll go mine
Is a phrase we often hear
Some people think the path they take
Escapes God’s watchful ear

But He hears every word you say
He sees the things you do
When you decide to turn your back
He calls right out to you

If you are on the cusp today
Not knowing where too turn
Ask Jesus  to come rescue you
For your heart He does yearn
