Grace Abounds

I was bound and oppressed, tormented and tested 
 By this world that I’m living in
 I saw no way out
 My life filled with doubt
 How could I ever be free again?
 I saw obstacles everywhere I turned
 From the past mistakes where I’d been burned
 Then a voice whispered in my ear
 My child, be still I am here

 My grace will abound in your life
 My mercy will pull you aside
 Out of this bondage
 Out of your past
 Into a blessing that will surely last
 Do not despair just lift your eyes to the skies
 My grace will abound in your life

 When I heard Him speak these words to me
 Tears filled my eyes as I realized
 This was a promise
 This freedom was coming
 A freedom to transform my life
 I saw blessings everywhere I turned
 All the years of obedience had earned
 Then I lifted my voice to the skies
 Dear Lord, your grave has arrived

 Your grace will abound in my life
 Your mercy has pulled me aside
 Out of my bondage
 Out of my past
 Into a blessing that will surely last
 I will give praise to Jesus above
 Who has rescued me by His love

 His grace will bring freedom. 
 His grace will bring faith
 His grace will bring healing
 His grace will bring erase
 All the chains that have held me down
 Will fall to the ground
 As His grace abounds

 His grace will abound in my life
 His mercy will pull me aside
 Out of this bondage
 Out of your past
 Into a blessing that will surely last
 I will not despair.  I will lift up my eyes to the skies
 His grace will abound in my life
 I will lift up my eyes to the skies
 His grace will abound in my life

His Plan is For Me

Why should I worry
Why should I fret
When I know God is in control
There is no trial
Or test in this world
That God cannot save me from

Why would I falter
Why would I fear
When the enemy comes at me
I have the strength
Of Jesus Christ
And He has a plan for me

His plan is victory
His plan is peace
His plan is perfect
His plan is for me
His plan will take me
To blessings untold
I want to follow His plan

In Him is mercy
In Him is grace
In Him I cannot go wrong
He will protect me
Watch over me
He makes my weakness strong

I pray I will walk
Daily with Him
Not leaving His precious side
I’ll never turn back
I’ll follow His ways
All the days of my life

His Mercy is There

I struggle some days to see
The mercy of God for me
I know He is there
I know that He cares
I just don’t know why He loves me

I know He sees all my faults
He sees the worst parts of me
But He quickly forgives
Then He helps me to live
In the mercy He pours out to me

His mercy is always there
His mercy is always there
No matter where I go
His mercy is there
I cannot escape His love
He showers me from above
When I look at myself
His mercy is there

I have to open my eyes
To see all the love He provides
It’s more than enough
To fill up my cup
He has an enormous supply

Now I can plainly see
That His mercy is meant for me
I raise up my hands
I thank God for His plans
He always does the best for me

His mercy is always there
His mercy is always there
No matter where I go
His mercy is there
I cannot escape His love
He showers me from above
When I look at myself
His mercy is there
