FOR I WAS FAR

This is my story,
 my testimony
Filled with redemption,
 alive with hope

I can’t be silent
 when I think about it
My understanding heart,
 it overflows

For I was far
away and dead in sin
I had no hope, at all to live again

And then you came
 and drew me close in love
You wash away
 my guilt and filthy stains
You wash away
 my guilt and filthy stains

You took this broken
 unworthy servant
made new with mercy
You call me friend

I just can’t hide it,
I have to shout it
I will be singing, to the end

For I was far
away and dead in sin
I had no hope, at all to live again

And then you came
 and drew me close in love
You wash away
 my guilt and filthy stains
You wash away
 my guilt and filthy stains

I am a pilgrim,
 a stranger on the earth
 keeping my eyes fixed upon the prize

I sing this song to
 remind my heart of
the grace forever found
 before Your eyes

When the day breaks
 and Heaven’s Light wakes
 my soul to look on The One I love

My heart will burst forth
 in rapturous praises
My thankful heart I give
 This Worthy One

For I was far
away and dead in sin
I had no hope, at all to live again

And then you came
 and drew me close in love
You wash away
 my guilt and filthy stains

You wash away my guilt
 and filthy stains
You wash away my guilt
 and filthy stains

REDEEMED

 Redeemed how I love to proclaim it!
redeemed by the blood of the Lamb,
 redeemed thro’ His infinite mercy,
His child, and forever I am.

Redeemed, redeemed,
redeemed by the blood of the Lamb.
Redeemed, redeemed,
His child and forever I am.

I think of my blessed Redeemer,
I think of Him all the day long,
I sing, for I cannot be silent,
His love is the theme of my song.

Redeemed, redeemed,
redeemed by the blood of the Lamb.
Redeemed, redeemed,
His child and forever I am.

SHOWERS OF BLESSING

 There shall be showers of blessing,
 this is the promise of love
There shall be seasons refreshing,
 sent from the Savior above.

Showers of blessing,
 showers of blessing we need,
 mercy drops round us are falling,
 but for the showers we plead

There shall be showers of blessing,
 Oh, that today they might fall
Now as to God we’re confessing,
 now as on Jesus we call!

Showers of blessing,
 showers of blessing we need,
 mercy drops round us are falling,
 but for the showers we plead

Redeemed, redeemed,
redeemed by the blood of the Lamb.
Redeemed, redeemed,
His child and forever I am.

KING OF MY HEART

 Let the King of my heart 
be the mountain where I run,
The fountain I drink from,
 Oh, He is my song.

Let the King of my heart
 be the shadow where I hide.
The ransom for my life,
 Oh, He is my song.

You are good, good, oh-ohh
You are good, good, oh-ohh
(repeat)

Let the King of my heart
be the wind inside my sails,
The anchor in the waves, oh-oh,
He is my song.

Let the King of my heart
 be the fire inside my veins
The echo of my days,
 Oh he is my song

You are good, good, oh-ohh
You are good, good, oh-ohh
(repeat)

You’re never gonna let,
Never gonna let me down.
You’re never gonna let,
Never gonna let me down.
(repeat)

You are good, good, oh-ohh
You are good, good, oh-ohh
(repeat)

When the night is holding onto me,
God is holding on
(repeat)

GRACE FLOWS DOWN

 Amazing grace,
 how sweet the sound;
 amazing love now flowing down

From hands and feet
that were nailed to the tree
 as grace flows down and covers me.

It covers me, it covers me.
It covers me, and covers me.

Amazing grace,
 how sweet the sound;
 amazing love now flowing down

From hands and feet
that were nailed to the tree
 as grace flows down
 and covers me.

It covers me, it covers me.
It covers me, and covers me.

SANCTUARY

 Lord, prepare me to be a sanctuary,
 pure and holy, tried and true.
With thanksgiving, I’ll be a living
 sanctuary for You.

IN THE SWEET BY AND BY

 There’s a land 
that is fairer than day
And by faith
we can see it afar

And our Father
waits over the way
To prepare us
a dwelling place there

In the sweet  by and by
We will meet on that
beautiful shore

In the sweet by and by
We will meet on that
 beautiful shore

We shall bring
on that beautiful shore
The sweet song
of the happy and blest

And our hearts
There will sorrow no more
Not a care
In that Haven of rest

In the sweet  by and by
We will meet on that
beautiful shore

In the sweet by and by
We will meet on that
 beautiful shore

To our heavenly Father above
We shall offer this
tribute of praise

For the wonderful gift
of His love
And the blessings
that brighten our days

In the sweet  by and by
We will meet on that
beautiful shore

In the sweet by and by
We will meet on that
 beautiful shore
