In my place, Jesus died…

In my place, He stood condemned
He who knew no sin
Became sin for us
That we might become
His righteousness

Bearing all my sin and shame
The punishment and blame
He conquered the grave
That we might become
The heirs of grace

In my place, Jesus died
The spotless Lamb laid down His life
The wrath of God was satisfied
In my place, Jesus died

In my place, He stood condemned
He who knew no sin
Became sin for us
That we might become
His righteousness

Bearing all my sin and shame
The punishment and blame
He conquered the grave
That we might become
The heirs of grace

In my place, Jesus died
The spotless Lamb laid down His life
The wrath of God was satisfied
In my place, Jesus died

Nail pierced hands, bleeding side
His body bruised, my God crucified!
A crown of thorns, dying cries
His flesh was torn, my God crucified!

Hallelujah! What a Savior!!!

In my place, Jesus died
The spotless Lamb laid down His life
The wrath of God was satisfied
In my place, Jesus died

Crippled Soul

I absolutely LOVE this song. The name of it is “Crippled Soul” by Sojourn.

Oh, my crippled soul
So broken with my sin
With a nature so depraved
I’m so ashamed, so afraid
If I bring it up again
If you really look again
Will you change your mind
And never let me in

O Lord, please do anything but leave me here
Let me run again, or help me fly,
Or somehow make it right
But Lord, please don’t leave me here

And I hate what I am
All these things that you despise
The depravity that seems to be
At the core of who I am
So hide me from myself
Let me pretend I’m someone else
Someone with a pure
And holy heart

O Lord, please do anything but leave me here
Let me run again, or help me fly,
Or somehow make it right
But Lord, please don’t leave me here

Is it any wonder then
That I should love to fly
Those moments when I touch you
And escape all that I am
Is it any wonder then
That I should do all that I can
To make it seem like I am whole
And worthy

O Lord, please do anything but leave me here
Let me run again, or help me fly,
Or somehow make it right
But Lord, please don’t leave me here

Tell me Lord, what do you want
Do you plan to make me whole
Or leave me broken
And bring glory through your grace

O Lord, please do anything but leave me here
Let me run again, or help me fly,
Or somehow make it right
But Lord, please don’t leave me here

Lord, You Are

This is one of my absolute favorite songs by Cross Movement. I am grateful for solid Christian rap. Praise God for that.

Lord You Are (2x)

Hook:
Every time I think of You
When I think about the things You do
Oh it’s not too hard to see it’s not what You do but its who You are…
Good, Holy, Pure…all of this and God You’re so much more!
Doin’ your will
I can just chill
Focus on who You are

(Lord You Are) Kindness, Compassion, Timeless, Matchless, Divine in Your actions
(Lord You Are) The Bedrock of trust, sin stops on your block ‘cause You’re the head cop You’re Just
(Lord You Are) So Gracious and Merciful, Praise – You deserve it, so worthy of worship, Oh!
(Lord You Are) We call You hope, we call You Peace and Love -You’re all of these – You’re all of the above

Verse 1
The Bible told me holy are Your ways (Your ways)
Nobody stops or had to start Your days (Your days)
So I marvel at Your endlessness
And at the fact that You’re righteous—You’re m’quadesh
You got the victory and the glory is already Yours
And we can be sure Your character is morally pure, Lord
We can’t help but adore You
Can’t help but applaud You
Our soul saw You so now we can’t help that it’s all You

My God You’re awesome, majestic
Your style’s eclectic
Pure perfection, King unelected, Nexus
Your love stretches…elastic
Now I’m connected
No more sin and death
You’re sin’s antiseptic
I checked forensics and found that your power’s intrinsic and flows only for agendas that you’ve intended
Solid, the Rock, Sweeter than nectar
Three in one winner – Yeah, Trifecta

Hook

Verse 2
I bless Your Name Father ‘cause You’re majestic, time tested
Skillfully built in six and on the seventh You rested
Who else could make the moon glow and the sun shine and have four different seasons flow all at one time?
You are the main attraction
The Who in what’s happenin’
Universal Captain
No need for slumber
You’re never slackin’
Nobody does what you do or could ever do what You’ve done
Most High, Supreme, King – The only One

If You would have never made the earth, Lord
That could never change Your worth
And if there was never another soul to behold Your beauty You’d be just amazing as You are, Truly
I’m gazing at the stars
Each one tells a story
Each one tells us of Your glory, tells us of Your might and Your power
May my praise be like a flower…but You made the flowers too
What can we give You?
Nothing’s ours
This is yours!

Hook

Verse 3
I’m not thinking about what most say
Lord I feel You in the utmost way
You’re Divine
We know You’re more cool than the Fonzie
You’re shiny
Shekinah lights up all your Omni’s
Omnipresent, Omnipotent and Omniscient
You’re eminent in addition to intimate and sufficient
You’re Logos and You’re Abba—that’s Poppa
You’re living agua—that’s Water
You’re Potter
You’re God and You’re more than a brother has thought up

I’m electrified by Your lightning likeness
Skip the Visine
No one that I’ve seen is like this
You’re priceless
Nothing compares, nothing is fair enough to hold up to You
What could dare receive stares and glory and while receiving it inspire awe and command all obedience? (No one)
You’re infinitely exceeding man’s limits (plus)
You’re transcendent (plus)
and endless
Lord,You are

You are Holy, Holy…

How many roads did I travel
Before I walked down one that led me to You?
How many dream did unravel
Before I believed in a hope that was true?
How long? How far?
What was meant to fulfill only emptied me still
And all You ever wanted…

Only me on my knees
Singing holy, holy
And somehow
All that matters now is
You are holy, holy

How many deaths did I die
Before I was awakened to new life again?
How many half truths did I bear witness to
‘Til the proof was disproved in the end?
How long? How far?
What was meant to illuminate shadowed me still

And all You ever wanted…
Only me on my knees
Singing holy, holy
And somehow
All that matters now is
You are holy, holy

How long wilt Thou conceal Thy face?

Hymn by Isaac Watts

How long wilt Thou conceal Thy face?
My God, how long delay?
When shall I feel those heav’nly rays
That chase my fears away?

How long shall my poor laboring soul
Wrestle and toil in vain?
Thy word can all my foes control
And ease my raging pain.

See how the prince of darkness tries
All his malicious arts;
He spreads a mist around my eyes,
And throws his fiery darts.

Be Thou my sun, and Thou my shield,
My soul in safety keep;
Make haste, before mine eyes are sealed
In death’s eternal sleep.

How would the tempter boast aloud
If I become his prey!
Behold, the sons of hell grow proud
At Thy so long delay.

But they shall fly at Thy rebuke,
And Satan hide his head;
He knows the terrors of Thy look,
And hears Thy voice with dread.

Thou wilt display Thy sovereign grace,
Where all my hopes have hung,
I shall employ my lips in praise
And victory shall be sung.

Between 2 Worlds

Trip Lee is a young brother in the Faith (who I often saw as a big brother lol) that the Lord is using in a great way. I cannot begin to tell how much Trip has encouraged me by way of his music, sermons, and his walk. I continue to be amazed at the Lord’s work through, and in, him. He has a new album coming out on 6/22 called “Between Two Worlds”. You can check out the video below to hear the brother’s heart.

You Hold Me Now

Believers in Jesus Christ, I pray this stirs in your heart the hope that is placed in you by our God…

On that day when I see
All that You have for me
When I see You face to face
There, surrounded by Your grace

All my fears swept away
In the light of Your embrace
Where Your love is all I need
And forever I am free

Where the streets are made of gold
In Your presence, healed and whole
Where the songs of Heaven rise to You alone

No weeping
No hurt or pain
No suffering
You hold me now
No darkness
No sick or lame
No hiding
You hold me now

In this life I will stand
Through my joy and my pain
Knowing there’s a greater day
There’s a hope that never fades

Where Your name is lifted high
And forever praises rise
For the glory of Your name
I’m believing for the day

Where the wars and violence cease
All creation lives in peace
Let the songs of Heaven rise to You alone

No weeping
No hurt or pain
No suffering
You hold me now
No darkness
No sick or lame
No hiding
You hold me now

For eternity
All my heart will give
All the glory to Your name

No weeping
No hurt or pain
No suffering
You hold me now
No darkness
No sick or lame
No hiding
You hold me now

Out of the Depths

I woke up this morning with this song stuck in my head. I have been having a rough go at things lately, and I do wonder if the Lord placed this song in my mind and heart today…

Out of the Depths by Sovereign Grace Music

Out of the depths, O Lord, I cry to You
When I am tempted to despair
Though I might fail to trust Your promises
You never fail to hear my prayer
And if You judged my sin
I’d never stand again
But I see mercy in Your hands

So more than watchmen for the morning
I will wait for You, my God
When my fears come with no warning
In Your Word I’ll put my trust
When the harvest time is over and I still see no fruit
I will wait, I will wait for You

The secret mysteries belong to You
We only know what You reveal
And all my questions that are unresolved
Don’t change the wisdom of Your will
In every trial and loss
My hope is in the cross
Where Your compassions never fail

So more than watchmen for the morning
I will wait for You, my God
When my fears come with no warning
In Your Word I’ll put my trust
When the harvest time is over and I still see no fruit
I will wait, I will wait for You

All the Way My Savior Leads Me

… as recorded by Chris Tomlin
original hymn by Fanny Crosby

All the way my Savior leads me
Who have I to ask beside
How could I doubt His tender mercy
Who through life has been my guide

All the way my Savior leads me
Cheers each winding path I tread
Gives me grace for every trial
Feeds me with the living Bread

You lead me and keep me from falling
You carry me close to Your heart
And surely Your goodness and mercy will follow me

All the way my Savior leads me
O, the fullness of His love
O, the sureness of His promise
In the triumph of His blood

And when my spirit clothed immortal
Wings its flight to realms of day
This my song through endless ages
Jesus led me all the way!
Jesus led me all the way!

You lead me and keep me from falling
You carry me close to Your heart
And surely Your goodness and mercy will follow me

All the way my Savior leads me…
All the way my Savior leads me…

What Child is this?

I wanted to share one of my favorite songs sung around this time of year!

What Child Is This? – Selah (CLICK TO LISTEN)

What Child is this who, laid to rest
On Mary’s lap is sleeping?
Whom angels greet with anthems sweet,
While shepherds watch are keeping?
This, this is Christ the King,
Whom shepherds guard and angels sing;
Haste, haste, to bring Him laud,
The Babe, the Son of Mary.

Why lies He in such mean estate,
Where ox and ass are feeding?
Good Christians, fear, for sinners here
The silent Word is pleading.
Nails, spear shall pierce Him through,
The cross be borne for me, for you.
Hail, hail the Word made flesh,
The Babe, the Son of Mary.

So bring Him incense, gold and myrrh,
Come peasant, king to own Him;
The King of kings salvation brings,
Let loving hearts enthrone Him.
Raise, raise a song on high,
The virgin sings her lullaby.
Joy, joy for Christ is born,
The Babe, the Son of Mary.
