I once was bound but now I’m free I once was blind but now I see I once was troubled but now have peace Oh, what a Savior He is to me I once had fear but now have faith I once was guilty but He took my place I once was a sinner but he showed me grace Oh, what a Savior He is to me What a Savior He is to me Took my sin, nailed it to a tree All my shame and guilt gone forevermore Gave me new life, my heart restored I once had sorrow but now have joy I once had despair, but hope I enjoy I once was so poor, but now riches untold Oh, what a Savior He is to me What a Savior He is to me Gives me life eternally Relieves all my fears and all of my doubts From all of my troubles He leads me out So, I will praise Him, I will lift my voice Up to the heavens with a shout of praise So, I will praise Him, I will lift His name Higher and higher will I lift my praise.
I’m resting today in the power of His love There is no greater power on earth His love never fails and it never gives up I’m resting today in His love I’m resting today in the light of His joy There is no greater happiness found His joy lifts me up when this life gets me down I’m resting today in His joy I’m resting today in the calm of His peace There is nothing that unsettles me His peace stills the wind and the waves when they come I’m resting today in His peace I’m resting today in the strength of His hope There is no way I’ll let go of Him His hope lets me know that my future is bright I’m resting today in His peace I hope that today you are resting in Him There is no greater life than this To know that the Savior is walking with you Please rest today in Him
I feast on the bread of this world Instead of the bread of Life I drink from my cup and my glass Instead of the Living Water I wake up to cares of this world Rather then thoughts for your word I’m not sure what I’m searching for But I know what I need from my Father I need a deeper desire to learn A deeper desire to pray A deeper desire to walk with you A deeper desire to praise Make it so, Lord Make it so today Let not another day go by That I do not walk in your way Fill me with your grace and mercy Help me give it out to the world Make it so, Lord. Make it so Make it so today.
He breaks me down, so he can build me up. He pours me out so he can fill my cup He dries me out so I will thirst for him. He wears me down to lift me up again His desire is to reach into my heart take the old man out and make me new His desire is to empty me of me And fill me up with everything brand new He uses trials in my life to show me I am weak He uses every circumstance to build my faith When I give my life to him and fully trust his grace I will see his mercy working every day He builds me up whenever I break down. He fills my cup when I have been poured out He satisfies the thirsting of my soul. He lifts me up when life has got me down His desire is to put his hope in me, Drive away my doubt, and lift my faith His desire is to fill me with his joy And overwhelming peace every day He uses trials in my life to show me I am weak He uses every circumstance to build my faith When I give my life to him and fully trust his grace I will see his mercy working every day I will see his mercy working, And in faith I will be trusting That his grace will give me hope every day I will see his mercy working, And in faith I will be trusting That his grace will give me hope every day
Today I can say how good it is To sleep in my house To lay in my bed To rest in my living room With the one I love beside me It was lonely when we were apart It was hard to sleep It was uncomfortable to rest It was unusual in its waiting With one beside me now and then Our Father in heaven gave his son To be born in a Manger To die on a cross To forgive our sins and give us life So we could be with Him eternally He cries to us Come, rest in my peace Come, lay in my arms Come, be with me forever For you are the one I love If you don't know Jesus As your Lord and Savior Why not ask Him today to forgive you Ask Him into your heart And He will save your soul And you will be with Him Forever.
God never changes. If there are trouble in your life, God can change them to miracles If you have doubts, God can change them to faith If you are sick, God can change you to healed If you're in sorrow, God can change it to joy If you're trouble, God can change it to peace If you're heart hurts, God can change it to comfort If your lost, God can change you to found If you're in sin, God can change you to righteous If your alone, God can change it to oneness with Him God never changes in His character, but he is ever changing our character - if we let Him. Allow Him to change you as He sees fit - It's always for the best.
I looked in the mirror and what did I see A reflection of the old man who lived in me But I know that Jesus has set me free So, I need to see what He wants me to be I adjusted my mirror and focused my eyes As I looked for the Spirit that lived inside Suddenly I saw, much to my surprise The new man in me was very much alive CHORUS He filled me with peace. He filled me with joy He filled me with hope that flooded my soul He filled me with His love and with a love for Him And now there’s a new man living within Now I need to make sure that the whole world will see This new man that’s taken up residence in me If I show grace to others in their time of need They will see that Jesus is living in me They need to see that Jesus is living in me BRIDGE He wants me to live holy. He wants me to be free He wants me to show others this love He has for me Looking in the mirror all that I should see Is the man that He made me when He set me free. CHORUS
I want to see your face Put my hand in your hand Hear you whisper in my ear Walk beside you through this land I want to have your blessing As we walk side by side Knowing you will never leave me If with you I abide Jesus, precious Jesus You are all that I desire Your Holy Spirit guiding me Will set my heart on fire Help me live a life of mercy Help me live a life of grace Because that is what it takes If I want to see your face I want to have you smile at me And tell me job well done I want your love to flow through me Reaching everyone I want to see the nations saved So all will sing your praise Because there's nothing more I love Than worshiping your name Jesus, precious Jesus You are all that I desire Your Holy Spirit guiding me Will set my heart on fire Help me live a life of mercy Help me live a life of grace Because that is what it takes If I want to see your face
I gave up my old ways. I started anew
For the rest of my days I’m living for you.
No turning back because I’m breaking through
For all that I want is to live for you
In the heat of the day with a cool morning dew
I’ll make the decision to live for you
When storms come around me with waves crashing through
I don’t have to worry I’m living for you
And when people ask why I have such Joy
I’ll say I found Jesus and He fills my soul
Because every day and every hour
You give me strength and you give me power
Precious Lord Jesus thanks for the cross
For so many years I counted it loss
But now I’ll give my life and all that I have
I’ll live for you until this life is passed
So when this old life is finally through
I’ll meet you in heaven because I live for you
Where would I be if I had not traveled to visit a friend of mine half way across the country in 1976? Where would I be if I had not gone to church with him that night and heard that message? The message that convinced me I was headed for hell and I made me know I did not want to go there. Where would I be if the pastor had not come to my friends’ house the day before I left and asked if I wanted to get saved and live for Jesus? Where would I be if I had not prayed that prayer and, with sweat coming from deep within and drenching my clothes, knew that something had changed inside me?
I believe with all my heart that the night I prayed that prayer would have been my last if I had not sincerely prayed that prayer. I travelled 70,80,90 mph all the way home from Iowa with a wobble in my front left tire. When I took it to my mechanic he could not believe I had just come all the way home from Iowa. I had a broken tie rod! I have no doubt that if I had not prayed that prayer, I would not have had God’s protection on the way home that day and the tire would have fallen off, as it should have. I would have had a terrible accident and be serving a life sentence in a hell none of us want to go to.
Have you prayed that prayer today? Have you been Born again, which Jesus says is a requirement to even see the Kingdom of Heaven? Are you living for Jesus? If you have not, please do it today. It may be your last.
“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved”
