Grace

GRACE

It was by God’s Grace I was saved
Nothing I did, nothing deserved
I was in awe, I was amazed
I knew something had occurred

What did I do, what did I feel
My first impulse was to kneel
I felt humbled, I felt loved
Forgiven and not judged

Your Grace enveloped and embraced
My heart went out to You in praise
My whole life now belongs to You
To please in everything I do

Although sin will be there waiting
It will not be dominating
Knowing Grace will be with me
I will have the victory

Why Did I Believe

WHY DID I BELIEVE

One verse for me was all it took
Why did I wait so long to look

The answer is not hard to find
My problem was I did not seek
Without Him I had made it fine
But one day I did take a peek

And there it was in Psalm 19
“The heavens declare the glory of God;
The skies proclaim the work of His hands”

Was that verse always there for me?
Today I feel God made it mine

In this world what do we mostly see?
The Universe, Stars, Galaxies
An order that could never be
It was right there but I didn’t see

Reading more deeply in God’s Word
I found the truth, I had not heard
A love so great, He gave His life
He thought that I was worth the price

His resurrection was proof for me.

Who Is This Man

WHO IS THIS MAN

Who is this man who changed history
Even the times are known as BC-AD
He left His mighty power to become like us
From being God to human–that is love

He came with a plan, to save humanity
We had no hope, dominated by sin
Fire, Wailing and gnashing of teeth
That is what our future would have been

Jesus is the man who changed history

Just as all mankind was a part of Adam’s sin
Jesus’ sinless death saved humanity
His death and resurrection reversed everything
He became like us, so we might become like Him

Now we have to choose between death or life
The Kingdom of darkness or the Kingdom of light

He came to earth as an innocent lamb
How can I show Him how grateful I am
His love for us I will never understand
I know before He came He had it all planned

Jesus, the man, who changed history
His one selfless act gave us eternity
