Every time I breathe…

I am sure all of heaven has heard my cry
as I tell You all the reasons why this life is just too hard.
But day by day without fail I’m finding everything I need
in everything that You are to me –

Every time I breathe You seem a little bit closer,
I never wanna leave – I wanna stay in Your warm embrace
Oh, basking in the glory shining from Your face! (and)
Every time I get another glimpse of Your heart,
I realize it’s true that You are so marvelous, God,
a
nd I am so in love with You.

Now how could I, after knowing One so great,
respond to You in any way that’s less than all I have to give?
But by Your grace I want to love You not with what I say, but everyday
in the way that my life is lived…

Chorus

Wrapped in Your mercy I want to live and never leave:
I am held by how humble, yet overwhelmed by Your majesty!
Captured by grace, now I’m finding I am free…
You are marvelous God, and knowing You is everything.

2 Corinthians 3:17-18
“Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.  But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.”

All for You

I wanna sing like I’m driving in the car all by myself
I wanna dance like I just won the lottery
I wanna lift my hands and spin around
I wanna throw my head back and shout
Like a prisoner who’s just found out he’s free

I will give my everything
I’ll be a fool for You
Because I am in love with You

I wanna sing and shout
I wanna dance around
I wanna forget who I used to be
And embrace Your truth

So when I sing and shout
Or when I dance around
When I lay my pride down
It’s all for You, it’s all for You

I wanna live learning how to make my life a sacrifice
I wanna die to find my true identity
I wanna answer at Your beckon call
Wanna do my best and give my all
I wanna hold on to You and let go of me

So let me give my everything
I’ll be a fool for You
Because I am in love with You

Chorus

With sweet success already gained
Self righteousness is not my aim
I’m raised from death into Your life, so free

Not on my own but by Your grace
I’m gazing long into Your face
And I can’t keep this passion bottled up inside of me

I wanna sing and shout
I wanna dance around
I wanna forget who I used to be
And embrace Your truth

So when I sing and shout
Or when I dance around
When I lay my pride down
It’s all for You

May I never lose the wonder

O precious sight, my Saviour stands
dying for me with outstretched hands
O precious sight, I love to gaze
Remembering Salvation’s day
Remembering Salvation’s day

Though my eyes linger on the scene
May passing time and years not steal
the power with which it impacts me
The freshness of its mystery
The freshness of its mystery

May I never lose the wonder,
The wonder of the Cross!
May I see it like the first time,
Standing as a sinner lost.
Undone by mercy and left speechless,
Watching wide eyed at the cost:
May I never lose the wonder,
The wonder of the Cross!

Behold the God (that) man crucified:
The Perfect, sinless Sacrifice.
As Blood ran down those nails and wood
History was split in two
History was split in two

Behold the empty wooden tree –
His body’s gone, alive and free.
We sing with everlasting joy:
Sin and death have been destroyed
Sin and death have been destroyed

~ Music & Lyrics:  Vicky Beeching

Sinner saved by Grace

If you could see what I once was, if you could go with me
Back to where I started from, then I know you would see
A miracle of Love that took me in Its sweet embrace
and made me what I am today:  just an old sinner saved by grace

I’m just a sinner saved by grace –
When I stood condemned to death, He took my place
Now I live and breathe in freedom
with each breath of life I take
Loved and forgiven, back with the living
I’m just a sinner saved by grace

How could I boast of anything I’ve ever seen or done?
how could I dare to claim as mine the victories God has won?
Where would I be had God not brought me gently to this place?
I’m here to say I’m nothing but a sinner saved by grace!

I’m just a sinner saved by grace
When I stood condemned to death, He took my place
Now I grow and breathe in freedom
with each breath of life I take
I’m loved and forgiven, back with the living
I’m just a sinner saved by grace

Romans 6 – Dead unto sin, alive unto God

Romans 6

1  What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?
2  God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?
3  Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?
Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
5  For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection:
6  Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.
7  For he that is dead is freed from sin.
8  Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him:
9  Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him.
10  For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God.
11  Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Romans 6:6 & 11
