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.
I’ve seen the oceans Great oceans vast That cover all the earth Water full of life Where life thrives Yet He is greater He who spread The oceans far and wide Who set the life within The waters of life He who is greater His word of truth He sill spread that truth Far beyond the oceans He spreads it over us all This truth the way If we choose to take it Is the water that gives us life
Though our scars May still shine From the pain We once suffered They are not the stains Of all the faults We have created The mistakes We have made Of the scars No shame Gone the stain Erased the disgrace We are new Made new by the blood The blood of the One The holy Son
In tears and sadness I cry evermore Lost to ever Nowhere to turn Darkness in waves Over and over And here I am Downing in all My final call The last I can muster Someone save me Before the night wins And then came a call One from above To look past the shadows To where light begins As the darkness lifts So the burden of shame All by His voice And the power of His name
Cry my child And call my name Let the waves be stilled And the storm be silent Where you hear my voice And the peace it brings To find greener lands Beneath a shining Son Where tears will fade Sorrow to joy I promise you this So call my name And cry my child For here I am I’m right here
Is it hidden away? All this darkness Within my heart All I was before The ugliness that hold me down The weight The burden That I carry forever Concealed in a soul Condemned by it’s mind Can I let it go? Be free to grow Or ever weighed down By the burden of it all
Live of others Not our own glory Seek not ourselves Or gain for our good Not in the kingdom The kingdom of God The glory be The love and deeds We show for each other For Christ came to us Left heaven for the dirt To walk to death For each of us He shed His blood For our lives Not living for self But the love of others So don’t live for ourselves But for all others To spread God’s glory His kingdom on earth
