In Your Embrace

My life is like a winding trail
That wanders to and fro
Sometimes I am so close to God
And other times I fall
I want my walk much deeper
So He will be my all
Draw me to your side, Oh God

Close to you by your side
In your love I will abide
Holding fast to your sweet grace
Staying close in your embrace

Guide my path keep me near
Your calm voice I long to hear
Gentle Lamb and Kind of Kings
Christ alone my everything

I don’t want to wander
Through this life anymore
I want to follow closely
To the path set by my Lord
Help me God to hear you
And to follow where you lead
That I may always be where I belong

Close to you by your side
In your love I will abide
Holding fast to your sweet grace
Staying close in your embrace

Guide my path keep me near
Your calm voice I long to hear
Gentle Lamb and Kind of Kings
Christ alone my everything

Turn Your Heart Strings

For so many years I heard about Christ
And all he had done for me
Raised in the church every Sunday
Yet I slipped away late in my teens

For many years I wandered aimless
In denial of all I had learned
Until a good friend turned my heart strings
I accepted the Savior I’d spurned

Maybe today you deny Him
And all He has done by His grace
Accept Him today as your Savior
And one day you’ll see His face
