Lord, Help Me Please

If God's in control, why do I worry
If God's in control, why do I dread
If God's in control i must always remember 
That He's not done with me yet 

I look at my life and see all the struggles 
Daily they come at me from every side
Just when I think that I might go under 
He comes along and strengthens my life 

It seems that I think I can handle it all
My pride says that I just cannot fall
Then I see this world crash in around me
And I find myself falling down on my knees 
Shouting Lord, help me please

Help me to see your mercy and grace
Help me to see the love on your face
Help me to lift my hands up in praise
To the one who can all my struggles erase

Yes, God's in control of the wind and the waves
He's in control of the storm and the rain
When trials and troubles are all around me
The best place I can be is down on my knees
Shouting Lord help me please

He's not a God who will leave me alone
To muddle through trouble all on my own
He's full of compassion, patience and peace 
He'll always be there to comfort me
When I cry out Lord, help me please.

Mercy is His Name

 Faithful is His name
 Faithful are His ways
 Faithful every day of my life
  
 Righteous is His name
 Righteous are His ways
 Righteous every day of my life
  
 For He is holy, holy, holy is the Lord
 For He is holy, holy, holy is the Lord
  
 Mercy is His name
 Mercy are His ways
 Mercy ever day of my life
  
 For He is holy, holy, holy is the Lord
 For He is holy, holy, holy is the Lord
  
 Jesus, King of Kings and Lord of Lords
 Jesus is the Light, the living word
 Jesus Savior of the world
 He is a friend of mine 

New Roads

I've been walking my own way way to long 
It seems that this comfort is where i belong
I dare not try to go a new way
But God is calling to step out in faith


I have to admit that I'm scared just a bit 
I've grown so accustomed to this life I live
He calls me to new roads that will take me far
Away from this life that I've traveled so far


Oh, God of wonder how can this be
That you would have plans for little old me
I'm noone special.  I have no degrees
Yet out of the darkness you gave called me


You've called me to walk by your side every day
To not be afraid of what might come my way
You've called me to step out to.places unknown 
To walk by your side as you make me your own


Oh God of wonder,  how can I be sure
That this is your voice.   That this is your word?
I've followed you more than half of my life 
And I've always tried to heed your advise 


But where you are calling me seems quite a stretch 
I think to myself that I'm not ready yet
Then I hear your voice and I know that it's you
Saying this is the plan that has waited for you


Oh God of wonder,  I will take heed
I will now walk wherever you lead 
It's only by faith I can do as I'm told
Only by faith can I walk this new road 

God Knows

 When the rain seems to fall within and without
 Or the pain is so bad you just want to shoot 
 When life just seems to kick you around
 God knows 
  
 When friends all around you are leaving your side 
 And loneliness seems to always abide 
 When your feeling restless and just want to hide 
 God knows 
  
 God knows your hurting
 God knows your pain
 God sees your heartache 
 He understands 
 Call out to Jesus. Tell Him your need 
 He will be there to give you peace
  
 When life seems to deal one final blow 
 And you’re feeling down with no place to go
 Just lift up your face to the one who knows
 Lift up your hands to the one who knows
 Lift up your eyes to the one who knows
 God knows.  God knows.  God knows 
  
 God knows your hurting
 God knows your pain
 God sees your heartache 
 He understands 
 Call out to Jesus. Tell Him your need 
 He will be there to give you peace

He Will Do This

 Will He clear me a path through the river?
 Will He calm the raging storm?
 Will He cast off my burden of sin?
 He will do this and so much more!
  
 Will He all of my diseases?
 Will He deliver me out of harms way? 
 Will He be my refuge and fortress?
 He will do this and more today
  
 CHORUS
 He will do it today because He’s done it before
 He will be there for me when I’m losing the war
 He will bring victory in the midst of the storm
 He will do all of this and so much more
  
 Will He guide me through valleys of doubt?
 Will He light up the darkness in me?
 Will He wash me was white as snow?
 He will do this for you and for me
  
 CHORUS
 
 BRIDGE
 He will shut lion’s mouths, open up prison doors
 He will part rivers wide, knock down the walls
 He will be in the furnace, He will be in the flood
 He will stop up the rain and then start it again
 He will die on a cross to take all your sin
 He will roll back the stone and rise again
  
  I will praise Him (Repeat 4 times)
  
 CHORUS
