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 dreamed there was a king who came from far away
He left His throne and palace but told no one his plan
The people who did serve Him did not know who he was
So they wondered and they marveled at the things done by his hand
He gave to them his riches for no reason they could see
He gave to them a feeling that someone really cared
Eventually he told them who he was and why he came
Some believed his story but others laid some snares
They didn’t like the fact that this so-called king had come
They had ruled the masses and their power was immense
But now the common people followed him and all he said
They just had to destroy him and their feeling was intense
Finally, they caught him telling all he was the king
They plotted his destruction so they could rule again
As he lay dying by their hands, he said a final word
He forgave their madness and then he said amen
I went and told a friend about the dream that I just had
He said that sounds familiar and he pulled out an old book
He told me I should read a little portion of the words
So, I took the book and opened it so I could take a look
John told of a Savior, Matthew of a king
Luke told lots of stories and Mark told of His life
I learned the King of Kings had come to earth to die
I learned that He walked among men before he bled and died
I learned He said forgive them for all that they have done
I learned He was not just a man, but God’s begotten Son
I thought to myself that day why one would not believe
In a King that came from heaven to transform even me
I was His biggest sceptic, yet He chose to set me free
Now I’ll live in heaven for all eternity.
If you think my dream is silly, then please go read the book
His story is all written for you to clearly see
If you’ll open up your heart and choose to let Him speak
You will find that Jesus loves you just as He loves me.
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
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
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)
