Mercy and Grace

His Mercy is There

I struggle some days to see
The mercy of God for me
I know He is there
I know that He cares
I just don’t know why He loves me

I know He sees all my faults
He sees the worst parts of me
But He quickly forgives
Then He helps me to live
In the mercy He pours out to me

His mercy is always there
His mercy is always there
No matter where I go
His mercy is there
I cannot escape His love
He showers me from above
When I look at myself
His mercy is there

I have to open my eyes
To see all the love He provides
It’s more than enough
To fill up my cup
He has an enormous supply

Now I can plainly see
That His mercy is meant for me
I raise up my hands
I thank God for His plans
He always does the best for me

His mercy is always there
His mercy is always there
No matter where I go
His mercy is there
I cannot escape His love
He showers me from above
When I look at myself
His mercy is there

It’s His Mercy

People often ask me why I follow Christ
They just don’t seem to understand His benefits in life
I tell them it’s quite simple and easy to receive
Just ask Him for forgiveness and then His Word believe

Once these things have happened your eyes will open wide
You’ll understand that Jesus is right there by your side
Truly you will know that He cares for you each day
One thing will really stand out as you walk along His way

It’s His mercy plain and simple
His mercy came for me
His mercy left a throne above to die upon a tree
His mercy then forgave me
His mercy gave me life
His mercy keeps me everyday
His mercy is my guide

His mercy brings me healing
His mercy frees my soul
His mercy brings such joy and peace
His mercy I will hold
I’ve learned I cannot live without
This mercy that He gives me
His mercy is the source of Life
His mercy covers me

When anybody asks again what Jesus did for you
When they say they just can’t why you worship like you do
Just smile and look at them with your eyes just full of love
And tell them it’s His mercy His mercy is enough

Praise and Worship

His Mercy Lasts Forever

I shudder just to think
What will happen in a blink
To the lost when Jesus comes back in the clouds
The saved will rise away
And beginning on that day
The wrath of God will pour out on this ground

The lost who all denied
The Lord would test their lives
Will face such horrors we cannot contain
But even in those days
The Lord will show His grace
And some will still be saved from all that pain

His mercy is forever
Even in His wrath
His mercy is forever
Even to the last
His love will always reach out
His grace will always pull out
His mercy lasts forever and a day

Don’t take your chance that day
Come to the Lord to stay
Take Him today to be your Lord and King
He’ll take you out of here
On that day that He appears
And you won’t have to face those nasty things

He warned you in His Word He’s coming back
He warned you in His Word to not be slack
Believe the Word of God
In a blink you’ll see reward
His Word is very clear in white and black

His mercy is forever
Even in His wrath
His mercy is forever
Even to the last
His love will always reach out
His grace will always pull out
His mercy lasts forever and a day

The Believers Life

His Only Son

I never understood the tests
I always tried to do my best
But never found a quiet place to rest

But then the Holy Spirit comes
He places me in Jesus arms
I realize I’m free from any harm

What a wonder my God is
What a miracle He gives me
He sent His Son
His only Son
To die and set me free

I now can safely rest in Him
I have a quiet peace within
I’ll never doubt His wondrous grace again

He’ll always be there by my side
His loving mercy will abide
And I will be forever satisfied

What a wonder my God is
What a miracle He gives me
He sent His Son
His only Son
To die and set me free

His only Son delivered
His only Son has healed me
His only Son took all my pain away
His only Son became my Lord
His only Son whom I adore
His only Son to whom I pray

What a wonder my God is
What a miracle He gives me
He sent His Son
His only Son
To die and set me free

Our Salvation

The Reaches of Your Grace

In the morning skies
In the clouds that rise
In the stars at night
In the bright sunlight
In the morning dew
In the flowers hue
In the world around
I see you

All creation is your masterpiece
Declaring who you are
Precious Lord make all aware
Of your mercy and your love

In the rain drops splash
In the winds that lash
In the birds that sing
In the eagle’s wings
In the brook that flows
In the corn that grows
In the world around
I hear you

All creation shows your majesty
Help us all to be amazed
At the wonder of your love for us
And the reaches of your grace

Born again

A New Start

Leave all your doubt
Leave all your fear
Leave all your worry
Be of good cheer
Trust in the Lord
With all your heart
He’ll light your path
He’ll bring you out

Leave all your anger
Leave gossiping
Leave all your troubles
Come to the King
Trust in the Lord
Give Him your life
He’ll give you peace
In the midst of your strife

Leave all your sin
There at the cross
Leave all your shame
He paid the cost
Bow at His feet
Worship His name
Jesus is Lord
Give Him your praise

Holy is He
Holy is he
Bring adoration
Down on your knees
Humbly before Him
Seek His sweet grace
Once your forgiven
Look in His face

He loves you more
Than you can imagine
He’ll help you through
In ways you can’t fathom
Trust in the Lord
With all your heart
This is the time
To make a new start

Praise and Worship

Living in the Lord

I used to run and hide when the devil came at me
He seemed so big and strong and His countenance was mean
But now I stand and say Satan get behind me
I know who I am I’m a child of the King

I used to fear and tremble when trials came my way
I thought they’d overwhelm me and carry me away
But now I stand and say I will take the trial today
I know that these troubles will only build my faith

Living in the Lord is so rewarding
Living in the vine gives life to me
I’ll never leave His side
In me His word abides
No longer will I fear the enemy

I used to be a child that would lose his joy and peace
Whenever I was troubled by my worldly enemies
But now I stand and say that my soul will stay at ease
I know the Holy Spirit will always be with me

No longer will I doubt
No longer will I fear
No longer will I run
No longer shed a tear
No longer will the enemy
Have a grip on me
I’ll call the name of Jesus
To repel the enemy

Living in the Lord is so rewarding
Living in the vine gives life to me
I’ll never leave His side
In me His word abides
No longer will I fear the enemy
