You’re Gracious To Me

person-110305_1920

Who am I compared to You
Why should You even think of me?
All the sin and trouble I’ve caused
I have no integrity…

You’re gracious to me
You’re gracious to me
You’re gracious to me, O LORD

For I am a sinner
I’ve sinned against You
I’m not worthy to bear Your name
Yet You raised me up and redeemed my life
To praise You imperfectly
You’re gracious to me

My enemies taunt me
They remind me of my troubles
They whisper that I’m not Yours
But it’s only empty words…

O Blessed be the LORD
My hope is restored
For You beat my enemies
And You delight in me
My spirit is renewed
As I delight in You

Psalm 41

As for me, I said, “O LORD, be gracious to me;
heal me, for I have sinned against you!”
My enemies say of me in malice,
“When will he die, and his name perish?”
And when one comes to see me, he utters empty words,
while his heart gathers iniquity;
when he goes out, he tells it abroad.
All who hate me whisper together about me;
they imagine the worst for me.
(Psalm 41:4-7)

Higher

Who can tell of all your deeds
Who can declare all your praise
Who can know all that you know
Who can love like you, O Lord

Your ways are higher than our ways
Holy, full of grace
Your wrath and mercy coexist
Perfect love in justice
You came to die so we might live
Paid it all, gave yourself
We praise your name, Most High
You are Higher

You comfort us in our distress
You never break your promises
You are more than we can receive
We’ll learn from you eternally

It’s undeniable
Your thoughts are beyond us all
Incomprehensible
Your greatness cheers our soul

Who can utter the mighty deeds of the LORDor declare all his praise?
Psalm 106:2

For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.
Isaiah 55:9

There is a Future

Verse 1
Wait, wait, don’t worry yourself
Be still and bring it to the Lord
For He will give you the grace you need
And the strength to endure

Chorus
There is a future, there is a plan
Written by a Sovereign hand
Drawn up before time began
And when you’re feeling down and everything’s bad
There’s a coming King and a promised land
A new heaven and earth beyond your dreams
Where no one’s sad and death has lost its sting
There is a future

Verse 2
Know, know, your steps have been secured
Salvation belongs to the Lord
For He holds the number of your days
And knows what each one’s for

Bridge
Delight yourself in the Lord
It’s only a little while more
Commit your way to the Lord
It’s only a little while more
And place your hope in the Lord
It’s only a little while more
Until heaven and earth are restored

Psalm 37

Every New Glimpse of You

pexels-photo-120271

Lord, open wide our darkened eyes
Awaken us to the truth
For in Your light we see more light
With every new glimpse of you

And stop the sound that keeps us bound
Old lies whispered to our hearts
Lord, remove the sin deep within
With every new glimpse of you

Lift the mist, let the mountains speak
Break the clouds, let the sunshine through
Restore our sight, wipe the mud from our eyes
With every new glimpse of you
Let our hearts be stirred through your Word
With every new glimpse of you

The heavens declare you’re right there
Telling the world who you are
Through all these clues there’s no excuse
With every new glimpse of you

No, we’re never far from where you are
You’re our refuge and our strength
Redeemed from the night, hidden by light
In the shadow of your wings

Psalm 36
“For with you is the fountain of life;
in your light do we see light.”

 

No One Greater

sunset-1728163_1920

Great are You, LORD
And greatly to be praised
You sit above the heavens
And You search all my ways

You tell my soul
You are my salvation
You reveal Your sacrifice
And how You crush satan

For there is no one greater
All-Powerful Creator
My Defender, Sustainer
There is no One like You
For You are my Savior
Your strength never waivers
And there is no one greater
No one greater than You

My enemies
They come to hurt and to blame
But You defend my soul
And You put them to shame

You’re my delight
My joy evermore
And my tongue can’t help but sing
Great are You, LORD!

Magnify

people-2590551_1920

We come to bless the God of Glory
You are the One without years
We tell the world Your gospel story
How You freed us from our fears

For You took us from sin and darkness
And led us into Your light
You gave us grace and bought forgiveness
By Your resurrection might

Yes, You are near the brokenhearted
You have a plan and will see it through
Yes, You are for us and won’t forsake us
And all Your promises are true
So we magnify You
Yes, we magnify You
May all that we do, magnify…
Magnify You

Oh, hear the sound of our humble tongues
Crying out to You once more
Let Your heart receive what’s being sung
As we rejoice in Your Word

If you weren’t being magnified
Surely the rocks would cry
If you weren’t being magnified
Surely the rocks would cry
If you weren’t being magnified
Surely the rocks would cry
We’ve come to magnify
