This Time

Last time I walked away
My faith was to weak to stand
My hope swallowed up in pride
Did not feel you by my side

Last time I didn’t hear
Your voice whisper in my ear
My love for you dwindled cold
I forgot the mercies of old

But that was last time, and it is gone
This is now and your love has won

This time I’ll stand by you
This time my faith is true
This time I’ll trust in you
Because you came through every time

There’ll be no more last times
Because I know that you are mine
This time I’m on solid ground
Because with your love you surround

Lord of my days and nights
Keep me ever close to your light
Let the last times disappear
So that this time your voice is clear
Help me see that you’re always near
Help me feel your sweet love so dear
Help me know the peace and good cheer
Of this time.

His Great Love For Me

 I don’t know why He loves me but He does
 I don’t know why He cares, but He cares
 I don’t know why He heals but He heals
 I don’t know why His plans He reveals
  
 I don’t know why He saved me but He did
 I don’t know why He died, but He lives
 I don’t know why He came to this earth
 I don’t know why he gave me new birth
  
 It’s His love for me, that came down for me
 From that heavenly home to set me free
 It’s His sacrifice on that lonely tree
 That showed His great love for me
  
 I don’t know what he gives me this great hope
 Or why he gave me peace so I could cope
 I don’t know why His joy has filled my soul
 His mercy is a thrill to behold
  
 He took the stripes and He took the scars
 The crown of thorns and the wounded heart
 He took the nails in His hands and feet
 All for me.  All for me
  
 It’s His love for me, that came down for me
 From that heavenly home to set me free
 It’s His sacrifice on that lonely tree
 That showed His great love for me

You Walk With Me

 You walk with me through the fire 
 When I feel I'm burning up 
 You walk with me through the flood
 When I feel I'm overwhelmed 
 You walk with my when I'm hurting
 When my soul just needs your love
 You walk with me through the desert 
 When I feel like giving up 
  
 You walk with me through the storm 
 When the thunder just erupts
 You walk with me when I'm doubting
 When my faith is not enough
 You walk with me when I'm lonely 
 When I just need your touch
 You walk with me in my weakness 
 When my strength has given up
  
 Every time I turn to you 
 You are there with me
 Every time I call to you 
 You come and comfort me
 Every time I pray to you
 Down on my knees
 I know that you are there
 Right beside me
  
 You walked for me to the scourging 
 As the beat you for my sins
 You walked for me with a crown of thorns 
 That dug deep into your skin
 You walked for me up the mountain 
 Carrying your cross
 You walked for me 
 You hung for me
 Took the nails for me
 Gave your life for me
 Then you rose for me
 Intercede for me
 So that I can be all that you made me
 I am so blessed that every day
 You walk with me
   

Trust In His Love

 I can’t imagine why He’d save me
 Why He’d take my cross to set me free
 I can’t imagine why He’d take my stripes
 Why He’d bear those thorns for me
  
 I can’t imagine why He’d leave His throne
 To be born in a manger with hay
 I can’t imagine why He’d take this time
 To walk with me each day
  
 But He does.  Oh, yes, He does
 He pours out His grace on me
 When I can’t imagine all that He does
 I trust in His love for me
  
 I can’t imagine that He’d hear my prayers
 Above all the noise of this world
 I can’t imagine why He’d forgive my sin
 Even though He is so holy
  
 He’s the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end
 He’s the bright and morning star and the Rose of Sharon
 He’s the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords
 He’s the way, the truth, the life and so much more
  
 Yet, He loves me.  Oh, yes, He does
 He pours out His grace on me
 When I can’t imagine all that he does
 I trust in His love for me
   

My Savior’s Call

 Not the highest mountain, nor the deepest sea.
 Not the river flooding, nor the storms around me.
 Not the hardest trial, nor a dread disease
 Can separate me from the love that Jesus has for me
  
 Not the harshest gossip, nor the threats toward me 
 Not the persecution, nor those who don't believe
 Not the hard temptations, nor the devils’ deeds
 Can separate me from the love that Jesus has for me
  
 Unquenchable, unstoppable is my Saviors love
 Undeniable. Unforgettable is His mercy from above 
 Unending, irresistible is my Saviors call
 Crying out to me. Crying out to all
  
 He calls me out of darkness and into His great light
 He calls me in my battles and strengthens me to fight
 His grace and mercy find me and show me what is right
 He calls me out of myself and into His great love
