Out Of The Mire

In my distress

I cried to the Lord

He lifted me out of the mire

Carried me up 

To a lofty place

And filled all my heart’s desire

Now I can sing

Of His wonderful grace

His mercy is covering me

I’ll lift up His name

His wonderful name

For He has supplied all my needs

For all of my sorrows 

He gave me His joy

For all of my troubles

He gave me His peace 

For all of my worry

He gave me His hope

On top of it all was His love

Oh what a Savior

Is Jesus my Lord

What a wonderful Savior to me

Whenever I’m down

He lifts me up

Then walks down the road with me

The joy of the Lord is my strength 

His peace oasses all I know

The hope that He gives is enduring 

Oh how He loves me so

For all of my sorrows 

He gave me His joy

For all of my troubles

He gave me His peace 

For all of my worry

He gave me His hope

On top of it all was His love

Press On

You may have stumbled and fallen
In your life today
But the Spirit would say press on
You may have troubles and trials
That will not go away
But the Spirit would say press on
You may think what you’ve done
Is a sin far to great
Bu the Spirit would say press on
You may think that you’ve failed’
And now it’s too late
But the Spirit would say press on

Press on toward the mark
Press on toward the goal
Jesus is waiting for you
He is not concerned
By things covered with blood
He only wants you to press on

If you doubt you are saved
But you’ve confessed His name
Then the Spirit would say press on
The enemy will try
To deny His sweet name
But the Spirit would say press on

Nothing can be done about what has been done
But something can be done about what will be done
Nothing can be done about what has been done
But something can be done about what will be done

Press on toward the mark
Press on toward the goal
Jesus is waiting for you
He is not concerned
By things covered with blood
He only wants you to press on

Behold My Son

The time has come
The night is passed
The sun is soon
To rise at last

As I await
The morning light
I look to God
To give me sight

Behold the sun
It’s brilliant rays
Light up the clouds
When comes the day

Amidst the shadows
When trouble looms
I wait for God
To bring good news

His voice I hear
In grace so mild
Lift up your head
My little child

Behold my Son
Look on His face
Soon all your sorrow
Will erase

He’ll bring you joy
His peace abounds
Stand near to Him
On Holy ground

Behold my Son
His grace will shine
Just like the sunrise
In the sky

In every day
When trouble comes
Get rid of fear
Behold my Son

Since Jesus Came Into My Heart

I wandered through darkness for so many years
My life had no joy as I looked out in tears
I had many doubts and thought many fears
Then Jesus came into my heart

He gave me a hope that is steadfast and sure
For all of my worries He had a cure
The love that he had for me was so pure
The day he came into my heart

Since Jesus came into my heart
I never want Him to depart
He gives me peace
My life is complete
Since Jesus came into my heart

Now I am walking with Him every day
He guides my path and shows me the way
I know that forever in His love I’ll stay
I’m blessed to have Him in my heart

If you do not know the Savior today
I hope you’ll consider what I have to say
Please know there are people who constantly pray
That you’ll allow Him in your heart

Since Jesus came into my heart
I never want Him to depart
He gives me peace
My life is complete
Since Jesus came into my heart

The War Rages On

The war rages on within me
My spirit battles my flesh
There are times I seem lost in the sin of my past
And I cannot find any rest

I know that He died for my sins
That He hung on the cross for me
Yet I still face this foe that is deep down inside
He yearns for victory

I get down on my knees and cry mercy
To the one who can pull me out
Then I feel Him come and fill me with grace
I rise up and let out a shout

Thanks for the victory Jesus
This battles not mine but yours
I give you my mind and all of my thoughts
I know you hear all my prayers

Help me yield myself wholly to you, Lord
Help me give up all that is mine
Help me follow you closely every day
Help me walk in your vict’ry divine

Only in you can I overcome
The lusts of the flesh that floods in
Only in you do I have the strength
To feel your sweet peace within

Thank you dear Lord for your mercy
Thank you for your saving grace
Help me to walk with the Spirit each day
Until I see your sweet face

In Hard Times

Isolated

Sulking in a corner
Downstairs in my room
Thoughts of taking my life
All is doom and gloom
I can’t see a future
When I see my past
Why don’t I just end it
This misery will last

Isolated
All alone
The enemy attacks here
Going crazy
Hope is gone
Why am I in such fear

I search my inner being
I find a ray of hope
There’s something deep inside me
That rises like a smoke
It fills my mind with wonder
Then I can sense a joy
The Holy Spirit rises up
His peace I now employ

I won’t get isolated
I won’t go off alone
I won’t look at my past
That robs me of my hope
I’ll look to the future
Where God has plans for me
And in His loving arms
I will always be

Don’t get isolated
Don’t crawl inside your head
Allow the Holy Spirit
To bring joy instead
He is waiting for you
To summon Him today
Rise up from that depression
For God will show the way
