From This Moment On

I was drifting
Far away from you
Didn’t take time to pray
Or praise you each day
I was struggling
To make sense of life
Then I turned to the cross
And I found what I lost

You paid the price for me;
Suffered and died for me.
Rose from the dead to give
Eternal life
I have so much to be
Thankful for now I see
Everything you have done
To give me life

So from this moment on
I am yours every day.
From this moment on
I will follow your ways
From this moment on
I will give you my praise.
You are the Lord of my life
From this moment on

I am trusting
My whole life to you.
I will take time to pray
Ae you each day
I am seeking
To draw close to you
So I’ll worship your name
And I’ll rest in your grace

You give your love to me;
Pour out your grace so free.
Your Holy Spirit brings
Joy to my soul
I have so much to be
Thankful for now I see.
Everything you have done
To give me life

Moment by moment
I’ll take time to pray
Moment by moment
I’ll worship your name
Moment by moment
I’ll trust in your grace
Every moment of every day

So from this moment on
I am yours every day.
From this moment on
I will follow your ways
From this moment on
I will give you my praise.
You are the Lord of my life
From this moment on

Trusting Jesus Oh How Sweet

It’s so hard to describe it
This peace down in my soul
Whenever trouble comes my way
His peace will take control
There is no doubt or worry
There is no fear or dread
He gives me blessed assurance
That vict’ry is ahead

Once you understand this peace
Then joy is next in line
When all of life seems out of sorts
Abundant joy is mine
He fills my heart with singing
That new song that I love
His joy does overtake me
For I know that He has won

Trusting Jesus oh how sweet
His Spirit is to me
Trusting Jesus all the way
Gives life abundantly

Peace and joy are settled in
Now hope comes crashing through
I know my troubles are but brief
As blessings are produced
There is no hesitation
To face whatever comes
This hope will help me forge ahead
For He has overcome

Trusting Jesus oh how sweet
His Spirit is to me
Trusting Jesus all the way
Gives life abundantly

I’m resting in His mercy
I’m trusting in His grace
No trial can defeat me
His truth I do embrace
His peace is always present
His joy does fill my heart
And hope will bring me through
If from Him I don’t depart

Trusting Jesus oh how sweet
His Spirit is to me
Trusting Jesus all the way
Gives life abundantly

Trusting Jesus

When my joy turns into sorrow
Under burdens that arise
Days of worry come upon me
As a tear forms in my eye
Sadness could come overwhelm me
If I let these thoughts go on
But I’ve learned to seek my Savior
When my troubles are prolonged

When my peace has been disrupted
Turmoil starts to swirl around
My mind wanders out of wanting
To find rest from troub’ling sounds
Doubt could eas’ly overtake me
If I let these thoughts go on
But I’ve learned to trust my Savior
He will keep me from all harm

Trusting Jesus in my trials
Trusting Jesus in my doubts
Trusting Jesus when I worry
He will turn my life about
When the hard times come upon me
There’s no reason to get down
I have learned to trust in Jesus
Jesus makes my life abound

When I start to doubt His wisdom
My life seems to be off track
I can’t seem to find the answer
To the questions that I ask
Storms of life are gathered ‘round me
Whirlwinds howling in my ear
I have learned to trust in Jesus
In the midst of all my fears

Trusting Jesus in the thunder
Trusting Jesus in the rain
Trusting Jesus when I cannot find
My way back home again
He is always watching over me
He is always by my side
I can rest with calm assurance
When in Jesus I abide

I will trust Him
I will trust Him
I will trust the Lord
Even in the darkest storm
I’ll stand upon His word
I will trust Him
I will trust Him
Each and every day
I will give my life to Him
I will trust the Lord

In The Midst

I’m tired of being tired
I’m sick of being sick
I’ll lift the name of Jesus in a song
But while I sit here waiting
For good health to return
I’ll lift the name of Jesus in a song

You wonder why I praise Him
When things are not so right
When He allowed this sickness in my life
The answer is so simple
It’s not hard to understand
When you think of all He’s done for me through time

He has loved me
He has saved me
He has healed me
He will raise me
He removed my sin and promised me new life
He delivered me
He’s been merciful to me
I will praise Him every day of my life

Now even when I suffer
When my life seems out of place
I do not forget what he has done for me
In the midst of any trial
I can raise my voice and sing
Hallelujah to my soon and coming King

His promises are true
His love is everlasting
His grace will cover all my foolishness
His mercy never fails me
His peace is inn my heart
His joy unspeakable flows endlessly

He has loved me
He has saved me
He has healed me
He will raise me
He removed my sin and promised me new life
He delivered me
He’s been merciful to me
I will praise Him every day of my life

Always and Forever

God’s been good to me
Always
The circumstances may look bleak
My health my not be good
My finances may struggle
But God has been good to me
Always

God’s been merciful to me
Always
He delivers me from evil
He holds me tightly in His arms
He reassures me with His peace
He has been merciful to me
Always

God’s been gracious to me
Always
He has forgiven me countless times
He has overlooked my faults
He has provided when I have failed
He has been gracious to me
Always

Even when I cannot see it
He is good
Even when I cannot understand
He is merciful
Even when I lose my way
He is gracious
Always and forever
He loves me

So when I’m down and out
When life seems upside down
When sorrow or sickness come
When darkness is in my life
I will still praise Him
I will still worship Him
I will still trust Him

Because Always and Forever
He loves me

Implicit Trust

I trust the Lord
Implicitly
No doubt
No confusion
No wondering

Many times
It’s not a matter of what
Or How
Or Why

It’s a matter of when
The answer will come

It’s in His hand
And on His schedule
Because
He knows what’s best
For me.

So I learn to wait
Wait for healing
Wait for deliverance
Wait for understanding
Wait for Him
 
And in my waiting
I praise Him
I rejoice
In His mercy
And grace

What an awesome God
I serve
He gives so much
To me
When I lift up
My prayer
He hears me
Yes  He hears me
What an awesome God
I serve

The Lord Knows

When you’re feeling sick
And you’re stuck in your bed
You pray but the answer is slow
You wonder if God
Has heard your request
I can honestly say the Lord knows

When trouble surrounds you
And you see no way out
You pray but the answer is slow
As the trouble gets worse
You question His love
I am confident that the Lord knows

He knows every pain, every hurt, every stain
He knows every doubt, every tear
He knows every sorrow and every heartache
He knows every doubt, every fear

Hold onto His promise
Don’t ever let go
Because no matter what comes your way
The Lord knows

When doubt settles in
And you cannot feel God
You pray but the answer is slow
Time passes by you
The days and then weeks
You wonder if God really knows

These are the times
When our faith is tested
This trial will help us to grow
We must trust in Him
And endure to the end
You can be sure the Lord knows

He knows every pain, every hurt, every stain
He knows every doubt, every tear
He knows every sorrow and every heartache
He knows every doubt, every fear

Hold onto His promise
Don’t ever let go
Because no matter what comes your way
The Lord knows
