Blessed Assurance

Blessed assurance
There's more to life than this ole' world
He is holding me
Faith in what I can't see

Left with my walls tumbling down
Calloused and bruised
My heart lay on the ground
Try as I will,
try as I might
I will climb one mountain
And through faith tell the other to MOVE!

I could be upset that things are not what I want them to be
But I know the blessed assurance
And Jesus is holding me

Lord, give me the words to write to speak
for mine are so clumsy
My heart is soft and open wide
for I found love for the very first time

The chains that held me before
They don't hold me anymore

One eve my walls came tumbling down
All my deceit lay in front of me
My face to the ground
but  this sin could not hold me
Through Christ is freedom

Oh, blessed assurance
There's more to life than this ole' world
He is holding me
My heart soft and opened wide
Yes, I found true love for the very first time

The chains that held me before
Well, no, they can't hold me anymore
Lord, give me the words to write and speak
for mine are so clumsy
Left with life so new and bright
steppin in His light
Try as I will,
try as I might
I will climb one mountain
And through faith tell the other to MOVE!


With the blessed assurance
Jesus is holding me
Faith in what can't be seen
