Not on my Own

I cannot do this on my own,

I need You every hour,

every minute of everyday.

I cannot do this on my own,

it’s You I need to lead the way.

Once a sinner,

now saved by Grace,

my heart aches for that

blood stained face.

I cannot do this on my own,

without You I am nothing.

It’s your name I will always praise,

even when the world tries to hush it.

In this crazy world of darkness

Your light shines bright,

Your love is strong,

because of You the enemy can’t harm us.

I cannot do this on my own,

I’m so thankful I don’t have to.

My Savior’s always by my side,

through this life I know He’ll be my guide.

In His Image

Beautiful is what you are

putting yourself down,

you’ve got to stop this

God created you in His image

He makes no mistakes

this I can promise.

The hands that created the moon and stars

are surely gentle enough

to heal your scars

Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise,

each and every person

is beautiful in God’s eyes.

Beautiful is what God is,

listen to me princess,

YOU are His!

He Understands

When you find yourself in darkness
hang in there, don’t lose hope.
The Lord is always with you,
even at the end of your rope.

He understands your heart aches
and each and every tear,
don’t be afraid to call on Him
for He is always near.

He’ll gladly take on burdens
you cannot bear alone.
Just take the time to talk to Him
you don’t even have to pick up the phone.

He understands frustrations
and all of the stress of life.
When it seems He has forgotten us
is when He wants to hold us tight.

He’ll never make us fight alone,
He’s always by our side.
So even when you’re down and out
remember, in Him you can confide.
