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.
I hear you calling Lord at the dawning of the day I hear your footsteps, Lord, as I walk along the way I feel your presence, Lord. I ask you please to stay Close by my side. I will abide in you You send your comforter to teach me of your ways Your Holy Spirit, Lord, to guide me every day I feel His presence, Lord, and I ask Him to stay Close by my side. I will abide in you Where you are, there is mercy. Where you are, there is grace Where you are I know I’m safe from all harm Where you are, there is freedom. Where you are, there is peace I always want to stay where you are So many times, Lord, I have wandered from your side So many times, Lord, I have given up on life So many times, Lord, you’ve reminded me that I’m Close by your side, so I’ll abide in you Right here, right now you hold me in your arms Right here, right now you keep me from all harm I don’t deserve it, I never will Yet you come and show your love to me You come and show your love to me
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.
Every heartbeat Every breath Every footstep Every rest Every sunrise Every rain Every sweet scent Every day CHORUS All is your mercy, Lord. Mercy for me All is your mercy, Lord. Holy and free Without your mercy don’t know what I’d do Thanks for your mercy Lord. How I love you All that I hear All I can see All that I taste All I can feel CHORUS BRIDGE Mercy and grace so freely given You gave your life on a cross just for me All of my pardon from sins disease You took it all, Lord, mercy so free CHORUS
He wants no less from us than mercy Mercy to each soul that comes along Don’t justify your harsh words or your temper Give mercy to each one and make them strong He wants no less from you than grace Grace that reaches everyone you meet Don’t justify your gossip and backbiting Just speak to everyone with words of peace He wants no less from you than forgiveness Forgiveness that will pardon every hurt Don’t justify your grudges and complaining Forgive each one who troubles your hard heart He wants no less from you than the truth Truth that speaks to everything in life Don’t justify your white lies and your fables Just speak with words of truth and you’ll survive He wants no less from you than great love Love that surpasses all who see Don’t justify your anger and repulsion Let love guide every word that you will speak These things and more we should do each day For Jesus came to show us the way These are the things He taught us to do Not go against them every day So guard your heart and close your mouth Let goodness flow from you Let your light shine for all to see In all you say and do.
