No Longer Silence (Psalm 94:17-19)

No Longer Silence (Psalm 94:17-19)

I have slept in silence
Only my screams echoed in my mind
It’s touch of death was upon me
Until He heard my calls
By His hand life now flows within my veins
His unfailing love halted my slide
My fear fell like the shadows
Blinded by the light of the day
His hand restores the fallen
His love fills broken hearts with hope
No longer silence here in darkness
I dwell in joy under His great light

Psalm 94:17-19

Cast If Off (1 Peter 5:7)

Cast If Off (1 Peter 5:7)

Does my heart lie
With all that breaks me down
Do I have to carry
The weight of all my fears
No more can I walk
With this burden upon my shoulders

So I cast it off
On to the One who died for me
I pass the burden
Of my anxiety to the One who saves
I walk free once more
Because the One who loves releases me

1 Peter 5:7

Where Would I Be Now (Hebrews 10:25)

Where Would I Be Now (Hebrews 10:25)

Where would I be now?
Without the arms that You led me to
Their words of encouragement
All formed within Your word
Become part of the foundations of my recovery
In my darkness they bring Your light
My tears they have wiped away
In the shadows they dare to reach
To bring me back into Your light
I thank You for this family
That have watched over me as I grow
All part of my recovery
And without them this I ask
Where would I be now?

Embracing The Word (Micah 6:8)

Embracing The Word (Micah 6:8)

Am I fully embracing of Your word
Do I do as Your word commands
Sometimes it feels so distant
The things that I should do
I try
Yet I still fail
At times I turn my back
But here is my promise
That I will try evermore
I know at times I may fall short
But still it is the time
To give Your word my all

I Write My Words (Daniel 4:2)

I Write My Words (Daniel 4:2)

I write my words
So deep and yet so personal
Once of fear and loneliness
Of captivity and desolation
Still the darkness of them is defeated
By the light of Your mighty works
That now shines upon my life
Illuminating the words of my rescue
Now words of the gift that You gave
A sign of Your great wonders
That lay upon my life
That make me who I am

Daniel 4:2

From My Darkness (Isaiah 42:6-7)

From My Darkness (Isaiah 42:6-7)

I feel Your fingers within mine
Like the night the light came
To lead me from my darkness
Where under addiction’s shadows
My eyes were blind in my cage
I held on to You so tightly
That night when You set me free
And still today in the light upon me
I still hold on to You so tight
And I write to the lost
Of the greatness of Your deeds
He who drew me from my darkness
And set His light upon me

Isaiah 42:6-7

Isaiah 42:6-7

Only One, Only You

Only One, Only You

Only one hears the cries
As each night passes by
For every wounded soul
And each one with a broken heart
There’s only one
Only You

Only one can break the shadows
To touch upon the empty soul
To catch the tears that fall in the night
To bring a peace upon their souls
There’s only one
Only You

Why are we so blind
We cannot see
Why do we not hear
The call of the fallen
As the stars fall
To shadows of the night
Why can’t we be like You

Only One set free the captives
Break down walls we build ourselves
Setting feet upon solid ground
To build a life beyond the hurt
There’s only one
Only You

In darkness only You heard my cry
Below shadows only You caught my tears
Into light only You could bring me
Only You could halt me fall

Why are we so blind
We cannot see
Why do we not hear
The call of the fallen
As the stars fall
To shadows of the night
Why can’t we be like You

Only one walks at our side
Through endless nights
Along life’s forgotten roads
Never leaving once we’re found
At our sides through everything
There’s only one
Only You
