He knows my need He knows me need When I am afraid He knows my need He hears my prayer He hears my prayer When I’m feeling down He hears my prayer He gives me peace He gives me peace When the storms arise He gives me peace He sends His joy He sends His joy When sorrow takes hold He sends His joy He’s always there He’s always there When I’m all alone He’s always there He died for me He died for me He shed His blood He died for me He saved my soul He saved my soul I was lost in sin He saved my soul He’s coming back He’s coming back He will take me home When He comes back I’ll praise His name I’ll praise His name My Savior lives I’ll praise His name
Why He came to earth at all I don’t know Why He made home in a stall I don’t know Why He taught the Fathers’ ways Why He showered me with grace Why He called me by my name I don’t know Why He took the scars and stripes I don’t know Why He sacrificed His life I don’t know Why He came to earth to die Why He loves both you and I Why He even cares at all\ I don’t know CHORUS I think it’s His love His everlasting love He loved the world so much He gave His only Son That all who would believe Will gain eternal love The questions that I have Are answered by this truth God loves us more than we deserve Why He builds me a mansion I don’t know Why He eases all my tension I don’t know Why He even cares at all Why He loves me when I fall Why He gives His grace so freely I don’t know CHORUS BRIDGE Now I know His healing is for me Now I know deliverance is for me Now I know redemption is for me Now I know salvation is for me Now I know forgiveness is for me Now the Holy Spirit is for me Now I know His joy Now I know His peace Now I know He did it all for me
Praise to the King! He reigns on high. His majesty fills the heavens And His glory lights the sky. His mercy reaches to my heart And His grace saves me from myself What a wonderful, loving God we serve. Who sent His son, His only son To come to this earth, giving up His throne And endured suffering and shame To die for me. He was beaten and bruised Ridiculed and mocked Hung on a cross, even though He was innocent He gave up His life - it was not taken from Him He gave His life so that I could have eternal life He is so gracious and merciful. I was an undeserving sinner, and had turned my back on God. I was wretched, and cursed God Yet He loved me so much That He sent His son To die for me. Now I will serve Him the rest of my days He is worthy of my praise. He gave His life for me, So I will give my life to Him. Praise to the King. He reigns on high.
I wake up Fresh fallen snow covers the ground Pure, white, clean Unstained by the world As the day goes on Plows go by Cars go by Dirt rises from beneath Staining the pure, white snow I wake up to my sin Jesus covers it with His blood Though my sins be as scarlet He will wash me white as snow Pure, clean Stained by sin no more Then the day goes by And the world comes in And sometimes I don't stay Pure , White, Clean I stumble and get stained again But His blood cleanses me Over and over Clean, Pure, White as snow Help me awaken each day And apply His blood to my life So like fresh fallen snow He will keep me Pure, White, Clean

I searched for a gift this Christmas A gift I could give to all It would have to be inexpensive And hopefully rather small I shopped on the net for days And nothing seemed quite right So I went to some stores in the city And I looked for several nights But the perfect gift was elusive Nothing I saw seemed to fit I started to think it was hopeless But then found the perfect gift It was free to any who wanted It was small, so I’d keep it in hand It was easy to give out to others I decided that this fit the plan This gift didn’t need to be wrapped up And it wasn’t some cute little toy All I had to do was give it The recipient would have much joy I’m giving Jesus this Christmas I’m telling my friends of His love I’m sharing with them His salvation And His mercy that rains from above I’ll share with them the Christmas story And the Easter story as well They will hear how much He loves them They’ll be touched by the story I tell This gift will last them a lifetime And they’ll live for eternity Safe in the arms of the Savior Forever they will be free This Christmas give all a present That will last for the rest of time Give everyone Jesus And give them the gift of life.
I never will forget the day I found you Fifteen hundred miles away from home The preacher made me realize That I was headed for the fire I knew that place was not where I should go Later on that week the preacher stopped by The house where I was staying with a friend We prayed the prayer of faith I’m glad He came that day For the next day I’d return back home again I prayed that he’d forgive me of my sin That He would wash me thoroughly within A sweat built up inside It drenched me like a tide I had no doubt that I had been redeemed The next day I struck out to go back home The drive was long and filled with many tears My tire was wobbling bad And I was driving fast I just wanted to get home and did not fear When I got home I checked with my mechanic He looked and said I can’t believe you made it This care should not be driven Your tire will soon be missing A tie rod underneath is loose and split My mind just started thinking of my Savior And how He rescued me that day from death Not just a death of soul But He spared my life I know If that tire had came off I would be dead Jesus comes to wash my sins away Then He protects me every single day So I will lift His name And give Him all my praise I know that He will guide my on my way
When I think about the fact That He left His royal throne I can’t help but praise His name When I think about the fact In a stable He was born I can’t help but praise His name When I think about the star That led the wise men there And the great angelic choir That the shepherds saw in fear When I think about His love To become a babe so dear I can’t help but praise His name Bless His name. His mighty name The name of Jesus is so sweet and so fair Bless His name. The matchless name The name of Jesus is music to my ears When I think about the fact He bore the stripes for me I can’t help but praise His name When I think about the fact That He died to set me free I can’t help but praise His name When I think about the pain That He endured for me How He gave His life for all That day at Calvary When I think about the grace That He poured out for me I can’t help but praise His name Bless His name. His mighty name The name of Jesus is so sweet and so fair Bless His name. The matchless name The name of Jesus is music to my ears I’ll sing His praise Every day With Loudest voice And hands up-raised I’ll lift Him high With all my might The wondrous name Of Jesus Bless His name. His mighty name The name of Jesus is so sweet and so fair Bless His name. The matchless name The name of Jesus is music to my ears
All of my life I have been searching for someone to help me out All of my days are spent in wandering about All of my trials and temptations don’t lead me anywhere I have not figured out why I am here I have looked to drugs and alcohol to bring me some relief But they only added to me sense of grief I had money, I was wealthy, I had riches and much fame But life only seemed to be a tiresome game Then I found the Lord or He found me And He told me what I was made to be A child of God and forever free Now He’s here walking with me Jesus is my guiding light Jesus is my help at night Jesus is the one who saved my soul From the depths below Now I choose to walk with Him and He shows me the way His love shadows over me each day I have given everything to follow in His past Because I know it will last I know the Lord and he knows me All that I do and all that I see I pray that He will help me be All that He has desired for me Jesus is my guiding light Jesus is my help at night Jesus is the one who saves my soul From the depths below
I often sit and wonder, In my quiet little place – If this love will last forever, And a smile comes on my face. Again, this is so different – The feelings are immense, My first life has been spent Without question of expense. I can feel his love so deeply In my heart throughout the day, And I know that I will always be Walking in his Holy way. And I truly thank you Lord of all For the love you bring within; I have heard your true and Holy call, I will never turn again. You fill my life with joy In a world where I was lost, I no longer feel that I’m a boy – I’m a man; I’ve paid the cost. Now Jesus lives within me, And a love does fill my heart That I wish to share with all of you To fulfill my rightful part. (Note: This poem was written back in 2002 and never posted.
