Mend Me

New Years eve, and this is what I see
Staring at these faces staring back at me
Sometimes insecure, but I know your love is pure

I am broken -- mend me
Over backwards -- bending
For the love you're sending

All the places that I've been
Still I can't escape this life of sin
What I want to do I don't do
And what I do I don't want to do

I am broken -- mend me
Over backwards -- bending
For the love you're sending

Days have come and days have gone
And still I'm under seige
Every day decisions made for which side to allege
Sometimes I just sit and cry for words I can't erase
All I have in this world is the promise of your grace

I am broken -- mend me
Over backwards -- bending
For the love you're sending

I am broken -- mend me
Over backwards -- bending
For the love you're sending

I am broken -- mend me
I am broken -- mend me
I am broken -- mend me

Here With Me

Isn't it enough just to have someone who loves you
Even though you know that someone's so far away
Here I am alone again without a reason
When I close my eyes I feel you here with me

You said you'd always love me
And you would never leave
Sure as the sky above me
I believe
I believe
I believe

In mountains high and valleys low
Desert land and driving snow
Like a river to the sea
You are always here with me

The world is full of those who verbalize endearment
A million times they'll say; a million times they'll let you down
You are different from the others who surrounded
Here with you I have a place to lay my burden down

You said you'd always love me
And you would never leave
Sure as the sky above me
I believe
I believe
I believe

In mountains high and valleys low
Desert land and driving snow
Like a river to the sea
You are always here with me

Dark the night and bright the day
Living light, shine my way

You said you'd always love me
And you would never leave
Sure as the sky above me
I believe
I believe
I believe

In mountains high and valleys low
Desert land and driving snow
Like a river to the sea
You are always

In mountains high and valleys low
(valleys low)
Desert land and driving snow
(driving snow)
Like a river to the sea
You are always here with me
Here with me
Here with me
Here with me
Here with me
Here with me

The Best Thing

I know the road you're on and where it's leading to
There ain't no coming back if you make it through
It'll cost you everything with nothing to show for it
But if you want it better, child
Here's your chance to go for it

The best thing in life is definitely free
The best thing in life is good for you and me

One thing's for certain, I have been taught
The key to heaven just can't be bought
'Cause the standard is perfection
And we are all short of it
In came Jesus, and He was above it

The best thing in life is definitely free
The best thing in life is good for you and me

Jesus on the cross, paid the penalty
And offers back to us, life eternally
The choice is up to you, just remember this
No matter what you've done
Jesus, He forgives

The best thing in life is definitely free
The best thing in life is definitely free
Ya hear what I'm saying
The best thing in life is definitely free
The best thing in life is definitely free
The best thing in life is definitely free
The best thing in life is definitely free

Long Time Comin'

Don't know where to begin or how to explain
This feeling within, there it goes again
Just a moment ago I said I wouldn't believe
Ah, but you touched my soul
And now I couldn't conceive
All the things you did just to get through

Looking back on my life now it's clear to me
How you led me to this place
So dear to me
Even though it seemed all of the sudden
It's been a long time comin'

Signs of danger, I can recall
Kind words from a stranger seemed like nothing at all
People been praying from my childhood to youth
Then there's that man who just told me the truth
All the things you did just to get through

Looking back on my life now it's clear to me
How you led me to this place
So dear to me
Even though it seemed all of the sudden
It's been a long time comin'

You've brought me this far.
Who's to say
You won't carry me through the rest of my days

Looking back on my life now it's clear to me
How you led me to this place
So dear to me
Even though it seemed all of the sudden
It's been a long time comin'

It's been a long time comin'
It's been a long time comin'

Thing Called Jesus

Don't come running to me with your half truth
Don't come crawling to me with your lies
'Cause I've seen the liar and slipped through his eye tooth
Pulled out by Jesus Christ

You've been pushing the spiritual nothing
But now I'm throwing it all away
Surely this whole thing has got to mean something
Because it does to me, does to me

This is more to me than just some story
This is more to me than just some song that I sing
I lay it on the line
Time after time after time after time
They can't stop this thing
They can't stop this thing
They can't stop this thing called Jesus

Just try to put me in some kind of closet
But sooner or later He'll knock down the doors
You can slander my name if you want it
He will send another, and then there will be more

This is more to me than just some story
This is more to me than just some song that I sing
I lay it on the line
Time after time after time after time
They can't stop this thing
They can't stop this thing
They can't stop this thing called Jesus

This is more to me than just some story
This is more to me than just some song that I sing
I lay it on the line
Time after time after time after time
They can't stop this thing
They can't stop this thing
They can't stop this thing called Jesus

No, they can't stop this thing
They can't stop this thing
They can't stop this thing called Jesus

Personal Judgement Day

Gonna be a hot time in the old town tonight
We're goin' out; we gonna do it up right
But in the middle of a casual grin
In the blink of an eye, He's coming again

Don't have to listen to a word I say
Don't have to bow your head and pray
You're only a breath away
From your personal judgement day

Accepted Jesus at forty-five
Said, "Man, I'm glad to be alive
All my friends are dead you see
And one bad trip and it could've been me"

Don't have to listen to a word I say
Don't have to bow your head and pray
You're only a breath away
From your personal judgement day

The Bible talks about a book of names
Souls rescued from the flames
So brother tell me, when it all is through
Do you know Jesus, and does He know you

Don't have to listen to a word I say
Don't have to bow your head and pray
You're only a breath away
From your personal judgement day

Don't have to listen to a word I say
Don't have to bow your head and pray
You're only a breath away
From your personal judgement day

Letting Go

I am a man who hides his feeling
And I don't think I can keep from revealing
All the things inside of me that are out of control
So Lord, I'm letting go

I'm letting go
Lord, I'm letting go
I'm letting go
Lord, I'm letting go

There was a time things didn't matter
Reason and rhyme were second nature
It was all a big facade, I have come to know
So Lord, I'm letting go

I'm letting go
Lord, I'm letting go
I'm letting go
Lord, I'm letting go

I am calling
Are you hearing
I am falling
Come and catch me

From now on I put my trust in you and you alone
And Lord, I'm letting go

I'm letting go
Lord, I'm letting go
I'm letting go
Lord, I'm letting go

I'm letting go
Lord, I'm letting go
I'm letting go
Lord, I'm letting go

I am calling
Are you hearing
I am falling
Come and catch me

You Are

Come on

Some people crazy; don't understand
There ain't no reason in the heart of man
They try and tell me you don't exist
They are mistaken; I must insist

'Cause you brought me through the shadow of death
How could you love me and still have any left
When I've fallen short
When I've gone too far
Everywhere I go, you are

Used to have a soul; used to have a need
An appetite for you, Lord, that lived to feed
Some men are hungry and strongly willed
But at your table I have been filled

'Cause you brought me through the shadow of death
How could you love me and still have any left
When I've fallen short
When I've gone too far
Everywhere I go, you are

You are in my daytime
You are in my night
You are everything I need
My Lord and my delight

Straight out of heaven into my heart
And now I know, yeah, we'll never part

'Cause you brought me through the shadow of death
How could you love me and still have any left
When I've fallen short
When I've gone too far
Everywhere I go, you are

When I've fallen short
When I've gone too far
Everywhere I go, you are

If Loving God Was A Crime

If loving God was a crime, I'd be an outlaw
I would join the fight
They could not shut me down
I would stand tall for what I know is right

Would you stand with me for the world to see
When all is on the line
Would you be ashamed of Jesus' name
If loving God was a crime

The school room, I hear, teaches choices
To kids who cannot pray
And the unborn, I fear, they have no voice
In politics today

Would you stand with me for the world to see
When all is on the line
Would you be ashamed of Jesus' name
If loving God was a crime

Take a look around
What will tomorrow hold
It's time to stand our ground
We must be bold
We must be bold

If loving God was a crime, I'd be an outlaw
And I would join the fight
Will you stand with me for the world to see
When all is on the line
Will you be ashamed of Jesus' name
When loving God is a crime

When loving God is a crime
When loving God is a crime
When loving God is a crime
When loving God is a crime
I'd be an outlaw
When loving God is a crime
When loving God is a crime

My Guitar

Look here people
I got a new six string
And here's the first song I ever wrote upon this thing
I'm sittin' in my room half mystified and bored
And wrote a song that praises the Lord

Well, maybe it'll be as big as Kumbaya
Maybe I should have left my pen and paper in the drawer
All about a man whose faith has been restored
And wrote a song that praises the Lord

Lord, I am so thankful for getting this guitar
Yes, I am so thankful for taking me this far
This guitar is awesome and never out of tune
And I play it for the people out underneath the moon
And I lead 'em all to Jesus with a melody and chords
Of a song that praises the Lord

Lord, I am so thankful for getting this guitar
Yes, I am so thankful for taking me this far

Lord, I am so thankful for getting this guitar
Yes, I am so thankful for taking me this far
This guitar is awesome and seldom out of tune
And I play it for the people out underneath the moon
And lead 'em all to Jesus with a melody and chords
Of a song that praises the Lord
Of a song that praises the Lord
Of a song that praises the Lord
