Grace & Mercy

He Has Been Merciful to Me

Through all of my struggles
And all of my pains
Through all of my heartaches
And all of my days
Through life’s hardest battles
I know this one thing
He has been merciful to me

He has been merciful
So merciful
All of my life, all of my days
He showed me His love
When my life goes through the battles
He’s always at my side
He has been merciful
So merciful to me

Through troubles in marriage
That caused me to cry
Through loss of a job
Twenty years left behind
Through every trouble
I know this one thing
He has been merciful to me

He has been merciful
So merciful
All of my life, all of my days
He showed me His life
When my life goes through the battles
He’s always at my side
He has been merciful
So merciful to me

I’ve battled through cancer
I’ve battled through pride
I’ve battled through sin
Long settled inside
Losing a finger
Or a shoulder that hung
He has been merciful to me

He has been merciful
So merciful
All of my life, all of my days
He showed me His life
When my life goes through the battles
He’s always at my side
He has been merciful
So merciful to me

Don’t Be Distracted

When I am down and weary
And life seems like just a fight
There’s only one thing that revives me
One thing that will make things right

I summon up all that’s within me
I make up my mind to change course
Then way down deep in my spirit
I hear a resounding noise

Praise the Lord
I will praise the Lord
In any dark time or stormy sea
I will praise the Lord

Praise the Lord
I will praise the Lord
Nothing can keep the words in my mouth
I will praise the Lord

The next time you’re in a battle
The next time your mood is down
Just make up your mind to praise Him
Relief will quite soon be found

Praise the Lord
You should just praise the Lord
Don’t be distracted by things in your life
You should just praise the Lord

Praise the Lord
Let’s all just praise the Lord
When we lift Him up He lifts us up too
Let’s all just praise the Lord

Our Salvation

Your Grace Abounds

Through deepest valleys and darkest days
Through all my trials and through my pain
Through every storm and all my fears
Your grace abounds to me

Through days of sorrow and sleepless nights
Through shattered hopes and tears of plight
Through times alone when my peace is gone
Your grace abounds to me

Your grace abounds to me
It fills my every need
When troubles come
Your grace has won
Giving me victory

Your grace abounds to me
Open my eyes to see
In my despair
You are still there
Your grace abounds to me

Through every heartache and every tear
Through every putdown that I might hear
Through deep depression when I am down
Your grace abounds to me

And when my trials seem more than I can bear
I know your grace will always find me here
If I just keep a watchful eye
You’ll satisfy every time

Your grace abounds to me
It fills my every need
When troubles come
Your grace has won
Giving me victory

Your grace abounds to me
Open my eyes to see
In my despair
You are still there
Your grace abounds to me

Beauty of Creation

Through the Storm

I come to you down on my knees
Hoping you will hear my plea
Ease my suff’ring ease my pain
So I can praise you once again

You speak to me so plain and clear
Making sure that I will hear
When you praise me through the storm
I will rescue you from harm

Through the storm I’ll praise you
Through the storm I’ll worship
Every trial
Every test
Will find me praising you

I rise up from my knees in haste
I lift my voice in grateful praise
Your word has spoken to my heart
From your praise I’ll not depart

Hallelujah hallelujah
Hallelujah to my King
Hallelujah hallelujah
Praise to you I sing

Through the storm I’ll praise you
Through the storm I’ll worship
Every trial
Every test
Will find me praising you

That’s When Jesus Calls

In the midst of your troubles when life seems so hard
You try to find rest but don’t get very far
Life just seems so messed up wherever you are
That’s when Jesus calls

In the midst of the pain and illness you face
All of your body seems out of place
One thing or another makes your health a waste
That’s when Jesus calls

He calls us to show mercy
He calls us to show grace
He calls us to take heed and look above
When you are at the bottom
Be still and hear His voice
He’s calling you testify
He’s calling you to lift Him high
He’s calling you to tell of His great love

When it seems that we’re in the worst battles of life
And wherever we turn it just adds to our strife
That’s when we have to give praise we’re alive
For that’s when Jesus calls

In the midst of struggle
Mercies are all new
In the midst of struggle
His grace still blesses you
In the midst of struggle
Be careful what you do
This is the best time to praise His name

He calls us to show mercy
He calls us to show grace
He calls us to take heed and look above
When you are at the bottom
Be still and hear His voice
He’s calling you testify
He’s calling you to lift Him high
He’s calling you to tell of His great love
