No Other One

Lord, be with me through the valleys
Walk beside me hand in hand
Carry me through the desert
Don’t let me sink in drifting sand

When tears flow like a river
Please wipe them from my face
I need your gentle touch
The feel of your warm embrace

When life seems to keep
Dealing blow after blow
You are my strength
The one who saves from any foe

You lead me directly through
The battles, not around
I look forward to the day
When I will be heavenward bound

No other friend is there to comfort
Through the darkest night
Or lift me from deep despair
To the most victorious height

What words can I possibly use
To thank you, my God and King
I’ll lay my life at your feet
And forever to your Word I’ll cling

No other Master is worthy
Of my devotion and praise
You alone will I worship
Today, tomorrow and always!

He Rescued Me

Floundering in a sea of darkness,
Water slowly rising up to my chin,
Grasping for a life preserver.
Will I reach the shore again?

Tears rolled down my cheeks.
I reached for a helping hand.
I needed someone to save me
From the sinking sand.

A light pierced the darkness,
Hope poured into my soul,
Love snatched me from harm’s way.
I felt peaceful and whole.

Almighty God heard my cry.
He sent His Son to rescue me.
Oh what a glorious Savior
Finally, I am free.

Freed from guilt and shame,
By this amazing gift of grace.
Freed from the shackles of sin
To win this marathon race.

Victory is Mine

Father, I have a race to win,
A battle to fight against sin.
I need the strength you provide.
A Savior who will protect and guide.

LORD, my victory’s guaranteed,
From sin I have been freed.
You have restored and made me whole,
Oh Redeemer of my soul.

I won’t take my eyes off you
Or quite the race until I’m through.
At your banquet table I’ll dine.
The crown of life will then be mine.

Reach Out a Hand

Reach out a hand to someone today
notice their tears;
hear their cry;
feel their pain.

Take them to your Heavenly Father
kneel before Him;
plead for them;
lay them at His feet.

Would I Still Praise You

What if one I loved died
Or I had a serious disease;
Would I still praise you LORD
Would I still feel blessed?

What if I lost my job
Or had trial upon trial;
Would I still praise you,
Recognize you at work.

Would I see your faithfulness
Through my life’s valleys
Or only on the mountain top
Would I praise you God.

Show me your handprint
Each day that I live;
Your footprints in the sand
As you carry me to the shore.

I will praise you each day
For every blessing and trial;
For your mercy and love
Will bring me home at last.
