thinking I must stay abed!
And then I heard the Spirit of God,
talking inside my head!
Saying don't give up, Victory's at hand!
Just reach out and take it, right now!
So I sat up in bed, listened to His command,
And victory came! I know how!
He IS our victory, brave and sure,
When WE dare to trust in HIS name!
I trusted His voice in the midst of the storm,
And sure enough HE CAME!
Victorious Life, Is His Will for US.
Victorious, Abundance and Peace!
When will we believe, that He's all that He says,
And LET HIM bring us release!
I began this day in such distress!
I thought, oh no! Not again!
How can I keep falling prey to these stunts!
How can I keep living in pain!
Then the Spirit of God drew near to my soul,
Saying, "Get up, dear one and fight!"
And the strength came to move,
and the will came to fight,
And I pushed back with all of my might!
Now my might wasn't mighty, nor my fight all that much,
But He threw in His power to boot!
And what with my faith, and His power and such,
We put that mess under foot!
So I've had a good day! Kept the baby, Kept the Faith,
and put one tedious enemy to flight!
I am thankful to God for His Spirit that came
and beckoned me into the fight!
I am thankful that He sees more than I do,
that He knows what He's installed!
I'm thankful that HE is faithful and true,
and equips all those whom He's called!
I'm grateful for healing, for strength for today,
and hope for tomorrow as well!
I'm thankful that when comes the very last day,
I've no need to fear death and hell!
I praise You YeHoVaH, for all that You do!
To transform wild sinners like me -
to break yokes of iron, bend bars of brass,
to give us true liberty!
The strongholds fall down at the sound of Your voice!
The bars of iron melt clean away!
At the presence of Him, who we all know to be, the Life,
and the Truth and the Way!
I praise You dear Father! I praise You fond Son!
I praise You sweet Spirit of Power!
I exalt Your name, I'm so glad You came,
that You visit me hour by hour!
I'm glad that You work to redeem fallen man!
I'm glad that You've taken our case! I
'm glad that Your blood makes the vilest clean,
and that no one's exempt from Your Grace!
Keep working in me, keep transforming this soul,
to someone who will make You proud!
Keep working and forming Your own life in me,
until I can live it out loud!
Keep refining my gold until all dross is gone,
and it shines just as bright as the SON.
Keep after me LORD, until I am all clean,
and all of my sin is undone!
Keep whispering Truth, keep rebuking the lies,
keep delivering my soul from sin!
Until that bright day when Your Son shall return,
and bring all the wanderers in!
Until that bright day, when HE comes again,
and sets all the captives free!
Keep leading me Spirit of Truth toward the LIGHT,
and help me help others to see!
