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.
A man once fell Yet there was no one No one around He had no strength To lift himself up He cried, he cried Won’t somebody help Still no one came running No one at all The sun and the rains In turn beat down The winds and the storms Battered him once more Still nobody came To this man on the floor He dreamed of a time He would rise again To be counted as human A man of this world And not left behind Or a man alone But all hope faded As dark came the nights How long passed? Days, maybe months And there He lay alone With very little left And still no one else around Then from the wilderness That man, he heard a voice
Do not fear For I am with you The One with the strength So you can live again I will lift you up Healing the broken And the wounds Only I can help you Stand you right again With my right hand I am grace I am love And I am yours If you take my hand
The man was in awe Couldn’t believe his ears The One he never believed in Call Him out the wilderness When all the world Had failed him The God of all Had called Him out To rise from the dust and dirt To be lifted up And counted once more But counted no As one upon this earth But a child of the Father The Father of them all And back then the man Wouldn’t have the strength To write this down And though time has passed And many tears have fallen The strength is still here To write this down To write it once more
A greater love Of Father and Son Who would lay down His life for us At the Father’s To save us all This greater love For us all For all His children That we be saved By the One Who laid down His life For the greater love
In the depths They spoke Of a Saviour Of salvation It was waiting There for me If I say And believe Jesus is Lord And I am here A saved man With hope And new dreams Thanks to the Lord Who rescued this soul To live again To believe
Speak only to the Father Listen only for His word Take the truth from the living God Not from those with word from beyond His word is alive His truth is light So listen only to our Lord The Father, Son and the Spirit Listen only for His word
Is this the way The world has turned No one is faithful Or trusts in the word Each to their own Their way of living The faithful so few In this world of want If only they knew Just what they needed The voice of the Father The One who is Truth If only they knew The life they could lead
