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.
The battle is the building The thing that makes us Who we are to be Hard pressed Yet never left to be crushed Perplexed Still comforted before despair Persecuted Never yet are we alone Struck down Still He won’t let them destroy us Yet we are built Made to be Just who we are meant to be Through the battle In the trial Yet never alone
Sting of death Where are you now? Have you no victory? For you fell At the coming of the cross And became no more At the resurrection of the Lord There is our victory In Christ the Saving One So here I ask again Where oh death is your sting?
As quick as time passes Hope builds a way All mistakes of a life Grace will wipe away If time erases the will Hope and grace build a future Turning the lostness of our thoughts To a secure future in the Lord
Is there a day to come All the people All the tribe Come as one together Looking for a home Looking for Heaven Will they turn their face Raise a song Raise a prayer And on that day If it is to come If it is to be He will bind them To Himself In covenant together Far beyond The day they come home
In darkest nights Broken mornings Stormy days And droughts forming I find a place In hope to give An unfailing love to hold A reason to live A Father to love Into a brighter day In the Lord my faith To show me the way
Are we just hear for a short stay Leasing our part of His earth We walk the paths in the lands Knitted together by the Lord Himself And those of pure of heart Shall climb His hills And those of cleanest hands Will stand there in His holy place For they do not look to what is false We are all but tenants upon His earth We should then all live beneath commands He sets So one day when our time on His earth is over And stand within the glory of His heaven We will see the fullness of His promise
Why me? How am I worth it? Just a wretch Deep in his sin Sinking in a bottle Unable to live Yet still He came His words were heard Where the bottle faded Temptation with it Broken set free Rebuilt by faith Risen to find life By the sacrifice of Christ Who paid this debt Amassed in sin To set a man free To live from within But still I ask Why me?
