Jesus You Are

Jesus you are my saving grace My coach preparing me for life’s race My refuge through life’s raging storm Mending all that is tattered and torn You are my forever guiding light When my way grows dark as the night My anchor in truth, who keeps me grounded Through trials and tribulations I am surrounded You are contentment of all my days Among a world that has lost its way My joy where everlasting peace abides In times of trouble, my shelter my fear abides You are the constant and steady beat of my heart My shield from the enemy’s fiery darts You are the melody my spirit sings Praise and worship to you I bring You are my strength when I become weak The answer to the question that I seek The solid rock on which I stand Protected from life’s sinking sands You are the wisdom that prepares my mind My eyes can see that once was blind My redeemer who ransomed my soul Freed from the chains of Satan’s control You are my courage to face the battle In victory you leave my enemies rattled My constant hope in days of doubt In distress, an escape, my way out You are my comforter collecting my tears Relieving my mind of constant fear Living water to my dying soul A friend forever while ages roll You are my intercessor to God carrying my pleas You are all that I will ever need In your name, I do pray Jesus you are more to me than words can say You found me and loved me first Even at my very worst Your death, my salvation, I can never repay Through my failures you choose to stay On the cross my eternal home was gained Because your love for me was greater than your pain With all that is within me, I shout your praise Jesus, you are and always will be, my Amazing Grace

Absolutely superb Donetta, a really great write on God's characters showing Jesus in all his glory. You could take each character and have great Bible study on each of them. Also shows great rhyme and flow too. Great stuff, Blessings, Gordon
