LEAD ME TO THE ROCK THAT IS HIGHER THAN I (Song Lyrics)

I took this stunning photo yesterday from inside a train …

Lead Me to the Rock that is Higher than I

Chorus
Oh! Lead me to the Rock that is higher than I
Lead me to the Rock and there let me lie
Safe and protected, sheltered and dry
Cradled in Your arms as the waves crash nearby

I can’t stand on my own anymore
I’m losing sight of the distant shore
I need help from the One I adore
I cry out from my very heart’s core

Stability is so hard to find
My body’s weak, confusion in mind
Looking in wrong places, peace to find
Desperate to escape, to unwind

Please lead me to the Rock
Lead me to the Rock
Lead me to the Rock called Jesus
Lead me to the Rock
Lead me to the Rock
Lead me to the Rock called Jesus

My fading eyesight wanders away
Dark waters close in with each new day
The sun has lost its warm healing ray
Lord, I’m so sorry, I’ll kneel and pray

My Father, without You, I am lost
I know how much for Your Son, it cost
It cost Him, cost You ’cause I was lost
You’re my Rock, forever. At all cost

Chorus
Oh! Lead me to the Rock that is higher than I
Lead me to the Rock and there let me lie
Safe and protected, sheltered and dry
Cradled in Your arms as the waves crash nearby

Oh! Lead me to the Rock
Lead me to the Rock
Lead me to the Rock called Jesus
Lead me to the Rock
Lead me to the Rock
Lead me to the Rock called Jesus

Chorus
Oh! Lead me to the Rock that is higher than I
Lead me to the Rock and there let me lie
Safe and protected, sheltered and dry
Cradled in Your arms as the waves crash nearby

Psalm 61:1-4
Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer.
2 From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
3 For Thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy.
4 I will abide in Thy tabernacle for ever: I will trust in the covert of Thy wings. Selah.

I’M READY FOR A MAKEOVER (Song Lyrics)

vector stylish wallpaper home living room sofa
Chorus
So I’m ready for a makeover, Lord
The lining of my heart is pretty tired
Please embroider Your word upon its wall
And may faith, hope and love be rewired

Spending too much time away from You
With too many empty thoughts
Filling my time with things of no worth
Now my life is out of sorts

The carpet of my long wanderings
Have worn feeble footsteps in
Took me places where I shouldn’t go
And right back into the arms of sin

Chorus
So I’m ready for a makeover, Lord
The lining of my heart is pretty tired
Please embroider Your word upon its wall
And may faith, hope and love be rewired

The old curtains that have tried to hide
Anything wrong in Your eyes
Things that I have tried to justify
Things that just cover up lies

The paintings despicting long lost scenes
Of life daily fleeting by
Show my emotions long held captive
On display, hung out to dry

Chorus
So I’m ready for a makeover, Lord
The lining of my heart is pretty tired
Please embroider Your word upon its wall
And may faith, hope and love be rewired

The couch once full of so much comfort
Floral hues everywhere
Your word rejoiced and filling each need
Now my poor mind is threadbare

Bridge
Recover me
Recover me
Recover me with Your love
Recover me with Your promises
Recover me with Love

Chorus
I thank You Lord, You’ve now made me over
My whole heart, it’s replastered and new
You embroidered Yourself upon its wall
And faith, hope and love are embraced, it’s true
