A Hymn of Praise

I’m hanging on to your grace that sustains me
I’m holding on to your mercy that brings life
I’m claiming every promise that you gave me
That you gave me through your perfect sacrifice.
 
And I know just how far I’ve fallen
I know the price you’ve had to pay
And I’m forever ever thankful
So come, my Lord, and have your way
 
I’m hanging on to your grace that sustains me
I’m holding on to your mercy that brings life
I’m claiming every promise that you gave me
That you gave me through your perfect sacrifice.
 
So, Lord I set my life before you
My life’s no longer mine but yours
Take me, break me, mold me, change me
To be more like you my Lord.
 
I’m hanging on to your grace that sustains me
I’m holding on to your mercy that brings life
I’m claiming every promise that you gave me
That you gave me through your perfect sacrifice.

Back to Him

Hope that never let’s you down
Peace that never fails
Heaven brought to earth surrounds
Purchased with those piercing nails
Life in its fullness for today
A freedom from all sin
Restoration done in God’s own way
To draw us back to Him.

A Hymn of Praise

Nothing can compare to knowing God
Nothing fills the gaping hole like He does
Nothing do I desire more than knowing Him
Nothing more makes my heart to leap and sing
Everything would I give up for this
Everything and nothing would I miss
Everything is second to knowing Him
Everything I offer to my King.

I Live

I live, O Lord,
For you sustain me
I have my being only in you
Thank you for the life you have given me
You cause me to sleep and to wake
Without you I am but dust
Thank you

My King

I am not wise enough to know
The paths to take, places to go
And so I put my trust in Christ
To whom I owe my very life
He will lead me where He will
In pleasant pastures, by waters still
And with my eyes fixed on Him
I’ll be His servant, He my King.

All I know

All I know I know for naught
Save in the hour Where I was bought
Save in your blood Where I was cleaned
Save in your love Where I was weaned
Save in your grace Where I did grow
Save in your place Where I will go.

In Total Control

In Total Control
 
He set His course
His aim was true
He had the choice
And He wanted to
Rise!
Let us go!
Here comes my betrayer.
He met them head on
The choice was His
He decided to die
We must decide to live.

Glory, Mercy, Love

There is no glory man deserves
For God deserves it all
And if we keep it to ourselves
Becomes our own downfall
 
There is no mercy God reserves
He gives it all to us
He withholds not a single drop
He freely gives it thus
 
God’s love this man clearly observes
He sees it day by day
In every act of kindness
In every single way.

All I Have

With all I have
which is not a lot
with all I am
not that I’m not
with all within me
and all you see
with that that’s costly
and that that’s free
will all my good times
and all my bad
with my shrinking violet
and Jack-the-lad
with pride and anger
shame and humility
with being spirit-filled
and in my humanity
with dragging feet
and gritted teeth
with a skip in my step
and a desire for truth
I come
not because I must
but because I may
Into your presence
I come and stay
In your peace
I wash my face
In your arms
find mercy and grace
In your eyes
are love and hope
with you there
I can cope
all you are
and all I’m not
find completion
there in that spot
all I am
and all I can be
find completion
in your reality.

I stand beside you

I stand beside you
I stand before you
I live inside you
I live just for you
Where you go, I am
Where you hide, I see
When you fear, I stand
When you call, I hear
I died just for you
I died to save you
I rose to free you
I live to prepare a place
