O, WHAT A SAVIOR

Marvin P. Dalton

Once I was straying in sin's dark valley,
No hope within could I see,
They searched through Heaven and found a Savior
To save a poor lost soul like me.

O what a Savior, O hallelujah!
His heart was broken on Calvary,
His hands were nail scarred; His side was riven,
He gave His life-blood for even me.

He left the Father with all His riches,
With calmness sweet and serene,
Came down from Heaven and gave His life-blood,
To make the vilest sinner clean.

O what a Savior, O hallelujah!
His heart was broken on Calvary,
His hands were nail scarred; His side was riven,
He gave His life-blood for even me.

Death's chilly waters I'll soon be crossing,
His hand will lead me safe o'er,
I'll join the chorus in that bright city,
And sing up there forever more.

O what a Savior, O hallelujah!
His heart was broken on Calvary,
His hands were nail scarred; His side was riven,
He gave His life-blood for even me.

EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED

Logan H. Peck and Rebekah J. Peck

Elijah climbed a mountain; he was feeling down and out
It seemed like he was all alone, the only child of God around
He waited for a great and mighty visit from the Lord
But the wind and the fire and the earthquake didn’t speak
It was a gentle whisper that brought him peace

Expect the unexpected when God's about to move
He will meet our every need in ways we wouldn't choose
Be still and know He's in control;  His power will come through
Expect the unexpected and watch what God will do.

You're holding to the hope that your deliverance will come
It's easy to suppose you know just how the Lord will get it done
But He just might surprise you by the way He brings you out
His time and His plan and His will are never wrong
So trust Him 'til the answer comes along.

Expect the unexpected when God's about to move
He will meet our every need in ways we wouldn't choose
Be still and know He's in control;  His power will come through
Expect the unexpected and watch what God will do.

I'M GONNA MAKE IT

Geron Davis

Through so many dangers
And toils of this life
I have already come.
And He keeps on giving
The grace and the strength
To just keep pressing on.
He's given a promise
And I'm gonna stand
On every word His holy Word has said
And holding His hand, I'll never fear
Whatever lies ahead.

I'm gonna make it.
He's already said that I would.
I'll keep on trusting
That He's working everything for my good.
He walks beside me, and Heaven is in my view.
Oh, I'm gonna make it thru.

In spite of the good intentions I've had
Sometimes my strength can fail.
Though I have tried
The very best that I could
My weaknesses prevail.
But then I remember the promise He made
That in my weakness He is made strong.
And that's when I know whatever may come
His steady hand will lead me on (and on and on)

I'm gonna make it.
He's already said that I would.
I'll keep on trusting
That He's working everything for my good.
He walks beside me, and Heaven is in my view.
Oh, I'm gonna make it thru.

The I of the Storm

 Kenny Kuykendall

They didn't understand why He didn't come
As they made their way toward the other side
As they left the shore, they faced the storm
And suddenly, they feared for their lives
But upon the sea there Someone walked
On the water as they listened for His cry
And soon they heard Him call their names
And tenderly He said, "It is I."

He's the I of the storm
The center of my calm
The place where I find shelter
The place where I find warmth
The center of my ways
The keeper of my days
When I can't feel the sun shine
And my ship is tossed and torn
He's the I of the storm

They couldn't understand how the Prince of Peace
Could find them in the middle of the sea
But with little faith and God's good grace
Joy would overcome their desperate pleas
Now there are times in life when I face the storm
And I wonder if I ever will survive
That's when I hear Him call out my name
And tenderly He says, "It is I."

He's the I of the storm
The center of my calm
The place where I find shelter
The place where I find warmth
The center of my ways
The keeper of my days
When I can't feel the sun shine
And my ship is tossed and torn
He's the I of the storm

Do not fear when He is near
Take hold of His strong hand
Listen closely to His words
He's the Great I AM

He's the I of the storm
The center of my calm
The place where I find shelter
The place where I find warmth
The center of my ways
The keeper of my days
When I can't feel the sun shine
And my ship is tossed and torn
He's the I of the storm

I'M A SOLDIER

William R. Phillips

I’m a soldier bound for glory,
I’m a soldier going home;
Come and hear me tell my story
All who love the Savior, come.

I will tell you what induced me
In the glorious fight to start:
’Twas the Savior’s loving-kindness
Overcame and won my heart.

I love Jesus, hallelujah!
I love Jesus, yes, I do;
I love Jesus; He’s my Savior;
Jesus smiles and loves me too.

Many say that I'm too noisy,
But I'll tell you the reason why:
If they only felt the glory
They would shout as well as I.

When I first commenced my warfare,
Many said, “He’ll run away”;
But their words have been unfounded
In the fight I am today.

I love Jesus, hallelujah!
I love Jesus, yes, I do;
I love Jesus; He’s my Savior;
Jesus smiles and loves me too.

I’m “a wonder unto many,”
God alone the change has wrought;
Here I raise my Ebenezer,
Hither by His help I’m brought.

When to death’s dark, swelling river,
Like a warrior, I shall come,
Then I mean to shout “Salvation!”
And go singing “Glory!” home.

I love Jesus, hallelujah!
I love Jesus, yes, I do;
I love Jesus; He’s my Savior;
Jesus smiles and loves me too.

EVIDENCE IN YOU

Dave Clark and Ricky Free

Little by little, I see a world that's changing
Until, little by little, I wonder what's worth saving
But there's a still, small voice reminding me of what I used to be
Before God's mercy covered me.

I am the face of God's forgiveness
I am the evidence of grace
I am the proof of just how much He loves
And how far He'll go to save.
If He saw something worth redeeming
In the mess that I had made
Then I believe there's nothing He won't do
To see the evidence in you.

Over and over, I see my faults and failures
And yet over and over, He says He can't remember
He only sees a child made worthy through the blood of Calvary
So when you look, I hope you see

I am the face of God's forgiveness
I am the evidence of grace
I am the proof of just how much He loves
And how far He'll go to save.
If He saw something worth redeeming
In the mess that I had made
Then I believe there's nothing He won't do
To see the evidence in you.

I could not be who I am
If it weren't for Who He is
And anything that I might be
Is only by His love for me

I am the face of God's forgiveness
I am the evidence of grace
I am the proof of just how much He loves
And how far He'll go to save.
If He saw something worth redeeming
In the mess that I had made
Then I believe there's nothing He won't do
To see the evidence in you.

THE LOVE OF CHRIST

Jeff Silvey and Tony Wood

Looking back over the years that I've known
If I had made this journey alone
I'd be searching for meaning so empty inside
If not for the love of Christ

I could pretend that I'm satisfied
Make you believe that I'm enjoying the ride
But the smile on my face would be a disguise
If not for the love of Christ

The love of Christ, oh, the love of Christ
No finer treasure, no greater prize
I can't imagine living my life
If not for the love of Christ

No mercy to cover all my mistakes
There'd be no peace through my darkest days
And no hope that I'd ever see paradise
If not for the love of Christ

The love of Christ, oh, the love of Christ
No finer treasure, no greater prize
I can't imagine living my life
If not for the love of Christ

JESUS, DRAW ME EVER NEARER

Margaret Becker & Keith Getty

Jesus, draw me ever nearer
As I labour through the storm.
You have called me to this passage,
And I'll follow, though I'm worn.

May this journey bring a blessing,
May I rise on wings of faith;
And at the end of my heart's testing,
With Your likeness let me wake.

Jesus, guide me through the tempest;
Keep my spirit stayed and sure.
When the midnight meets the morning,
Let me love You even more.

May this journey bring a blessing,
May I rise on wings of faith;
And at the end of my heart's testing,
With Your likeness let me wake.

Let the treasures of the trial
Form within me as I go -
And at the end of this long passage,
Let me leave them at Your throne.

May this journey bring a blessing,
May I rise on wings of faith;
And at the end of my heart's testing,
With Your likeness let me wake.

A TROPHY OF GRACE

Sheryl Farris

If you had known me then, the way I was before
Then you’d understand why I can’t hold back the tears
Now my life is so different since I gave it to the Lord
And I want to give Him glory while I’m here
I stand before you knowing that it's only by His grace
That I am just what I am today

I’m a trophy of grace
A display of His love
I’m part of the results from
The old rugged cross
That was stained with His precious blood
Though I’ll never understand why
He died in my place
Just look at me today
Because I can say
I’m a trophy of grace

I know there is no way that I can repay his love
And the mercy he’s shown is more than life to me
There’s nothing I can do or say that would be enough
To pay the debt of sin He paid for me
My life’s a testimony of His mercy, love and grace
And one day I will thank Him face to face

I’m a trophy of grace
A display of His love
I’m part of the results from
The old rugged cross
That was stained with His precious blood
Though I’ll never understand why
He died in my place
Just look at me today
Because I can say
I’m a trophy of grace

YOUR GRACE STILL AMAZES ME

Shawn Craig and Connie Harrington

My faithful Father, enduring Friend
Your tender mercy’s like a river with no end
It overwhelms me, covers my sin
Each time I come into Your presence
I stand in wonder once again


Your grace still amazes me
Your love is still a mystery
Each day I fall on my knees
Your grace still amazes me
‘Cause Your grace still amazes me


Oh, patient Savior, You make me whole
You are the Author and the Healer of my soul
What can I give You, Lord, what can I say
I know there’s no way to repay You
Only to offer You my praise


Your grace still amazes me
Your love is still a mystery
Each day I fall on my knees
Your grace still amazes me
‘Cause Your grace still amazes me


It’s deeper, it’s wider
It’s stronger, it’s higher
It’s deeper it’s wider
It’s stronger, it’s higher
Than anything my eyes can see


Your grace still amazes me
Your love is still a mystery
Each day I fall on my knees
Your grace still amazes me
‘Cause Your grace still amazes me

NEVER ALONE

I waited for you today
But you didn't show
No, no, no
I needed You today
So where did You go?
You told me to call
Said You'd be there
And though I haven't seen You
Are You still there?

I cried out with no reply
And I can't feel You by my side
So I'll hold tight to what I know
You're here and I"m never alone

And though I cannot see You
And I can't explain why
Such a deep, deep reassurance
You've placed in my life

We cannot separate
'Cause You're part of me
And though You're invisible
I'll trust the unseen

I cried out with no reply
And I can't feel You by my side
So I'll hold tight to what I know
You're here and I"m never alone

We cannot separate
You're part of me
And though You're invisible
I'll trust the unseen

And I can't feel You by my side
So I'll hold tight to what I know
You're here and I"m never alone

GOD OF ALL MY DAYS

Ricky Free and Tony Wood

He had heard the news, still it took him by surprise
The news that his company was choosing to downsize
Twenty-seven years, then you're on your own
Changes leave you weary, feeling so alone
I knew that fear was chipping at his faith,
So it took my breath away to hear him pray.

You are God of all my days
You won’t leave me and my every breath is guided by Your grace
I know I’m not forgotten though it feels that way
Still You are God, God of all my days

She had been so faithful in children's Sunday School
Loving kids for decades, teaching them God's truth
Now it's getting harder doing what she's done
Her spirit still is willing, but her body's giving up
I saw the tears start flowing down her face
How it blessed my heart to hear her pray.

You are God of all my days
You won’t leave me and my every breath is guided by Your grace
I know I’m not forgotten though it feels that way
Still You are God, God of all my days

Lord, help me have the courage as changes come my way
Because the truth is, come what may. . .

You are God of all my days
You won’t leave me and my every breath is guided by Your grace
I know I’m not forgotten though it feels that way
Still You are God, God of all my days

NEED YOU NOW

Tiffany Arbuckle Lee, Luke Sheets and Christa Wells

Well, everybody's got a story to tell
And everybody's got a wound to be healed
I want to believe there's beauty here
'Cause oh, I get so tired of holding on
I can't let go, I can't move on
I want to believe there's meaning here

How many times have you heard me cry out
"God, please take this"?
How many times have you given me strength to
Just keep breathing?
Oh, I need you
God, I need you now.

Standing on a road I didn't plan
Wondering how I got to where I am
I'm trying to hear that still small voice
I'm trying to hear above the noise

How many times have you heard me cry out
"God, please take this"?
How many times have you given me strength to
Just keep breathing?
Oh, I need you
God, I need you now.

Though I walk,
Though I walk through the shadows
And I, I am so afraid
Please stay, please stay right beside me
With every single step I take

How many times have you heard me cry out?
And how many times have you given me strength?

How many times have you heard me cry out
"God, please take this"?
How many times have you given me strength to
Just keep breathing?
Oh, I need you
God, I need you now.

IN YOUR ARMS

I'm turning the world off
Embracing the silence
Walking away from all the voices
That are screaming in my ear

I've been too caught up
I've been so stressed out
And all of the noise replaced the whisper
That used to be so clear
So I close every door
And put my face back on the floor

And I'm in Your arms
Where I belong
There's no other place for me
Than right where You are
Some things just don't change
When I call Your name
You never hesitate to wrap me in endless grace
When I'm in Your arms

I'm letting my fears go
Giving You control
For You are the one who holds me closer
In my soul's darkest night

Everything I see
Is so temporary
So help me to run the race before me
With eternity in sight
Now I close every door
And put my face back on the floor

And I'm in Your arms
Where I belong
There's no other place for me
Than right where You are
Some things just don't change
When I call Your name
You never hesitate to wrap me in endless grace
When I'm in Your arms

To sit at Your feet
At Your table of mercy
To gaze on Your beauty, my Lord
To drink from Your well
And be changed by Your glory
How could I ask for more?
Jesus, how could I ask for more?

Than to be in Your arms
Where I belong
There's no other place for me
Than right where You are
Some things just don't change
When I call Your name
You never hesitate to wrap me in endless grace
When I'm in Your arms

ABSOLUTE PEACE

Neil Enloe

When I listen to the news
With its gloom and doom reviews
Talk of war and nations in distress
I’m reminded of God’s Word
How my every prayer is heard
All my fears are calmly laid to rest

I shall hold fast my faith in the Lord
For He promised to be faithful to His Word
With tomorrow in His Hand
And His perfect master plan
I will trust Him and have absolute peace

I fear no threat of things yet to come
For I know at Cavalry total victory was won
So I will not fear or dread
Over things that lie ahead
I will trust Him and have absolute peace
That passes understanding
I will trust Him and have absolute peace
Sweet peace

I shall hold fast my faith in the Lord
For He promised to be faithful to His Word
With tomorrow in His Hand
And His perfect master plan
I will trust Him and have absolute peace

IN ME

Mark Hall

If you ask me to leap
Out of my boat on the crashing waves
If You ask me to go
Preach to the lost world that Jesus saves
I'll go, but I cannot go alone
Cause I know I'm nothing on my own
But the power of Christ in me makes me strong
Makes me strong

Cause when I'm weak, You make me strong
When I'm blind, You shine Your light on me
Cause I'll never get by living on my own ability
How refreshing to know You don't need me
How amazing to find that you want me
So I'll stand on Your truth, and I'll fight with Your strength
Until You bring the victory, by the power of Christ in me

If You ask me to run
And carry Your light into foreign land
If You ask me to fight
Deliver Your people from Satan's hand

To reach out with Your hands
To learn through Your eyes
To love with the love of a Savior
To feel with Your heart
And to think with Your mind
I'd give my last breath for Your glory

Cause when I'm weak, You make me strong
When I'm blind, You shine Your light on me
Cause I'll never get by living on my own ability
How refreshing to know You don't need me
How amazing to find that you want me
So I'll stand on Your truth, and I'll fight with Your strength
Until You bring the victory, by the power of Christ in me

SOMETHING

Author?

Maybe you feel worthless, totally insignificant
A little speck in a big, big world.
You think you're not important, you're unnoticeable
That's not remotely possible with God.

Nothing's not nothing ‘cause nothing becomes something.
He makes something out of nothing ‘cause He believes
That nobody is nobody 'cause Somebody takes nobodies
Makes somebodies out of nobodies like me.

Gathered with the hungry, the disciples told the Lord,
There's no food for the people today.
A little boy came forward with a little fish and bread.
And the Lord turned a nothing meal into something great.

Nothing's not nothing ‘cause nothing becomes something.
He makes something out of nothing ‘cause He believes
That nobody is nobody 'cause Somebody takes nobodies
Makes somebodies out of nobodies like me. 

Nothing becomes something with God.
Nothing becomes something with God.
Nobodies are somebodies with God.
Nobodies are somebodies with God.

Nothing's not nothing ‘cause nothing becomes something.
He makes something out of nothing ‘cause He believes
That nobody is nobody 'cause Somebody takes nobodies
Makes somebodies out of nobodies like me.

DON'T HANG YOUR HEAD AND CRY

Jim Brady

Don't hang your head and cry
There's a million reasons why
You can hold your head high and smile
There's a loving God who cares
He hears and answers prayer
He will walk beside you every mile

When you can't find the strength you need to carry on
That's the time that our God will prove himself so strong
And He will work a miracle that only He can do
Then once again just as before He will bring you through

Don't hang your head and cry
There's a million reasons why
You can hold your head high and smile
There's a loving God who cares
He hears and answers prayer
He will walk beside you every mile

Now we all have those days when it seems the sun won't shine
And rain just keeps on pouring down from the darkest sky
But it's in those times we really learn to give up our control
And hold on to the promises we already know

Don't hang your head and cry
There's a million reasons why
You can hold your head high and smile
There's a loving God who cares
He hears and answers prayer
He will walk beside you every mile

Just take the time to read the words He wrote in love for you
And trust that every morning
His mercies will be new

Don't hang your head and cry
There's a million reasons why
You can hold your head high and smile
There's a loving God who cares
He hears and answers prayer
He will walk beside you every mile

So hold your head up high
And smile
