Trust me, I've been there, I've looked, I've searched and I know now, that there are no answers to be found in the bottom of a bottle or on the edge of a blade! Fighting Hard, Recovering, Rebuilding, REBORN. Moving on from addiction to a new life.
Stronger than the sword Or the shield we carry Stronger than all We find upon this Earth Only One came true Who showed us how strong He who carried pure love His armour and His shield He showed us how to love The sacrifice pure love takes So tie our faith up in our love And bind them around our neck Let us all come to overflow With the love written up our hearts
Across the skies To sparrows fly Free to soar To fly at their will Across winds And through trees These little birds Find themselves free Still what’s their worth? For they do not sow Kept and cared By the will of the Father They fly free Below heaven’s skies So what’s my worth? To the Father above For if He loves the sparrow How great is His love for me?
Why do I let in darkness? From dark corners The shadows creep Laying lies upon my heart And emptiness within mind They tell me You’ve turned away From me turned Your face And here I am crying How long my Lord? Until You come to find me Until I’m set free again When will this dark subside Fall at the vision of the light And here I am waiting In the nothingness of the night
My child I never leave you I will never turn away You let the darkness come through Let the lies of fear into your heart So open up your eyes And release your mind Feel the love of mine in your heart Feel the protection beneath my wings Just open yours and see me hear And watch the shadows disappear
And in this life I sought so much Lost and found Things I could love I’ve let life slip Let it drift away Until I look at nothingness And finally gave in But there I found life When I laid down my arms And there I found Your love One better than life Now I raised up by Your grace I lift my praise to heavens skies Singing Your name And of Your love The one much better than life
O Lord Here I am Down upon my knees I offer my surrender I offer my everything Lord teach me Your ways Lord let Your hand guide me Take me to the river That will lead me to the sea A vast ocean wide When Your love runs so deep O Lord Here I am Down upon my knees
There it is Awaiting me The prize before me To be taken hold of When the time is right So I run the race And fight the battle I may fall My soul be bruised Yet the spirit of the Lord Raises me So I persevere Push on through it all Until the time is right And the day arrives That I collect the prize The Lord has set That awaits me
