The Nature of our Soul

Some say that they will be fine in the end
That Jesus saved us all that fateful day
The sacrifice was made
On Him our sins were laid
And now we can go on our merry way

There’s an element of truth in what they say
Jesus did atone for all our sins that day
But still you must repent
Of a life that has been spent
With the sin stain of the past still in place

You see it’s not the sin that we all see
That is critical to rid from this body
It’s the nature of our soul
That keeps us from being whole
It’s been there since the beginning of all time

This natural sin is deep within your heart
And there is only one way it departs
Confess that you have sinned
Repent and ask Him in
Take a personal step to Jesus Christ our Lord

My Prayer

Lord please help me to find my way
My feet to often go astray
I need your guidance every day
While walking in this world

I find myself on the wrong path
I must abscond or face your wrath
Then I return to you at last
Looking to your word

Have your precious mercy flow to me
Make me all that you want me to be
Keep my eyes from sin that lurks within
So that I might walk with you again

I wander off so easily it seems
The enemy has evil schemes
But by your blood I’ve been redeemed
I once again can stand

Your strength not mine Oh Lord
Your will not mine Oh Lord
Your way not mine Oh Lord
This is my prayer
This is my prayer

Have your precious mercy flow to me
Make me all that you want me to be
Keep my eyes from sin that lurks within
So that I might walk with you again

At Last

Trapped within a mine
With no food or water
Darkness settle sin
This scary small enclosure
No escape is seen
Then someone moves a boulder
Daylight streaming in
You’re free to live at last

Trapped within your sin
With no path to escape
Jesus comes to earth
He forgives by His grace
Then angels move a boulder
Now you can see His face
Forever you can praise Him
He made the way at last

White as Snow

I’ve made a lot of messes in my day
I’ve spilled a lot of stuff
That caused some massive stains
Industrial strength cleaner
Was the only way
To clean up all the messes I have made

But there is one mess that I cannot touch
No cleaner in this world
Can cleanse this stain enough
It is the sin stain that is left
Upon my heart
Whenever I far away from God

However there is one way that I know
To take this sin stain out
And make it white as snow
The blood of Jesus Christ was shed
To cleanse my soul
He takes my sin stains out and makes me whole

Today if you are wallowing in sin
All you have to do is ask
And Jesus will forgive
Don’t let the sin stain in your life
Remain within
Give up your sin today and ask Him in

I Had Been Good

I wandered aimlessly about
Not knowing I was wrong
Thinking all the while
That God would go along

He didn’t mind my sin
He really understood
After all most of my life
I really had been good

Then i heard that Jesus
Was God’s only true Son
I learned He died for me
So my sins would be gone

He took all my transgression
He nailed it to that cross
‘Twas then I realized
What my sin truly cost

I asked Him to forgive me
To wash my sins away
I told Him I would make Him Lord
I’d serve Him every fay

Now I am bound for heaven
I pray that you are too
Make Jesus Christ your Lord today
His love will pardon you

No One Knows

No one knows the depth of sin that once ruled in my heart
No one knows the damage that this sin to me imparts
No one knows the chains that bound my mind to think I’m smart
No one knows but Jesus

No one knows the depth of love that God showed me that day
No one knows the cost He bore to give His Son away
No one knows how much it took to change my sinful ways
No one knows but Jesus

He knows my every sorrow
He knows my every care
He knows when I am hurting
His love is always there
He knows my inner struggles
He knows my wandering heart
He knows deep down I love Him
His love never departs

No one knows how much I want to serve Him with my all
No one knows exactly what will be my lifelong call
No one knows how often I still stumble and then fall
No one knows but Jesus

He gave His all for me
That day on Calgary
He died to take my sin and set me free
He knew what it would take
This was no mistake
He bled and died
Then rose on high
To bring me victory

He knows my every sorrow
He knows my every care
He knows when I am hurting
His love is always there
He knows my inner struggles
He knows my wandering heart
He knows deep down I love Him
His love never departs

 

The Great Escape

I was floundering through life
Delirious at times
By night so many drinks
By day smoke dulled my mind
I thought that life was grand
Because my mind was dulled
I really was in trouble
Enslaved by what I loved

But then I found the Savior
My great deliverer
He came in like a squadron
Defeating all my fear
I found myself with new desires
My mind was thinking straight
His love had filled my heart
Before it was too late

Jesus, Mighty Jesus
Authority is His
Power and dominion
Is always His to give
When He came into my life
He taught me how to live
He provided me a great escape

Escape from all my fears
Escape from all my doubts
Escape from all my sorrows
Escape from satan’s shouts
Escape from sins dead snare
Escape from words of hate
Escape from thoughts of lust
Escape from dumb debates
He broke all of my chains
I now am walking free
He opened prison doors
He brought me victory

Now I can trust in Him
My mind is in His word
His Spirit speaks to me
His peace is my reward
There’s no misunderstanding
Of who is in control
I’m putty in His hands
A sheep within His fold

Jesus, Mighty Jesus
Authority is His
Power and dominion
Is always His to give
When He came into my life
He taught me how to live
He provided me the great escape

 

No Longer Lost

One small stain is all it takes
To tarnish a nice garment
If you catch it right away
You just might clean and save it

Our lives have gone on for years
Our sin stains are now old
Confessing all to Christ will bring
Renewal to our soul

Don’t let the stains of life grow old
Don’t let them last or grow
Allow His blood to cover you
Then you’ll be white as snow

For Jesus shed His blood for you
On that old rugged cross
When you give up your life to Him
You’ll be no longer lost

Be on Guard

I’m going through chemo so I wear a mask
Protecting from germs is the point of that task
My whole immune system is shot from the drugs
I don’t need to end up diseased with a bug

But there’s something else I must guard against
The sin that will infect my soul is intense
It creeps in so subtly and plants itself deep
If I will make sure my guard does not sleep

But if I should get caught away in my sin
I have a Savior who heals me within
He gave himself freely at Calvary
Now His grace and mercy will be there for me
