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.
And now that life is different From the day I was found For this reason I have to live I’ll praise You for all my days From the first steps at Your side To the day when I come home I’ll sing a song of praise to You For each of the days of this life
When the darkness Became too much The silence Had become a scream There You found me In all my mess And we spoke Of the sin within me Still You forgave My sinful ways And showed me a peace I could never find Now I have the love I’ve ever searched for As I thrive Beneath Your unending grace
And if the storm approaches Finding you defenceless to it’s advance Though you know the Lord is with you Though you know He will stop the storm Don’t wait for until the storm is over To sing out praises unto His name But sing as the first winds find you Sing out as you feel the first rain Praise Him as the storm approaches Praise Him as it rages all around And praise Him as it falls silent Praise Him who can calm any storm
You put the song Within this heart Set the beat And arranged the tune Now the words I sing I sing to You In thanks for all You’ve done In the good And the bad I will still sing To the peace Of this heart’s tune For You put the song This song I sing Into this heart of mine
As You walk beside me now Do I recognise You? Do I know You now? You walked with me before As I stepped in darker places Yet I never knew You Didn’t know You were there And now we walk together Do I always recognise You here Yet even when I return to darkness Still You walk with me there I’m sorry that I misunderstand Sorry I turn my face Through all the times That You’ve walked at my side Still I never realised Lord walk with me still further To where I find my place beyond this world And finally make it home
Born out of love Released to love all To give freedom To those in chains To give healing To all in pain And give life To those slipping away By grace we’re encouraged Through hope we find strength In the Father and the Son We find all we required Because this we know This we believe For us all He was born out of love
