Lord, You are the One Who shows me who I am
Lord, You are the One Who led me to the Lamb
Lord, You are the One Who turns my night to Day
Lord, You are the Truth, the Light, the Way!

When I was a baby, I screamed at my first thirst
I wanted what I wanted and Selfishness at Worst
I grew up thinking I was god; the sun rose at my beck
But light revealed the darkness; my life was now a wreck

I didn’t see the Truth; I lived in satan’s lie
He told me food that filled me was something I must buy
He warned that others stood to take the things that should be mine
So wars were staged, and people hurt that I could feel just fine

The years bore down and broke the crown I’d placed upon my head
I’d drank his wine and ate his bread, but still I felt unfed
I fainted from the weakness of the place to which he’s led
Sinfulness had brought me here and I lived among the dead

In the middle of this tragedy I hear a soft Voice say,
“You’re lost and doomed without Me, this is no place to stay.”
I knew the Voice had spoken true and I must flee with haste
All I held had melted fast; my life was a disgrace

My soul cried out, “Please take my hand!” I felt His presence strong
He said, “Don’t fear. Just follow Me. I’ve been here all along.”
“I know My sheep. They hear My voice.” And then I knew His name!
Jesus led to pastures green! I’ve never been the same!

Lord, You are the One Who shows me who I am
Lord. You are the One Who led me to the Lamb
Lord. You are the One Who turns my night to Day
Lord, You are the Truth, the Light, the Way!

He taught me how see His world through His different eyes
He touched my ears and let me hear the hell in satan’s lies
He fed me food that had no cost, and wine He called His blood
His words had washed my guilt away, like a cleansing flood.

I learned to die that I might live, and give that I might gain
I found that Lamb become a Lion that ever more will reign!
I found that now is not the care; and I am not the star
I am my Brother’s Keeper now; Eternity’s not far!



Speak a word to me Remind me I am free
Together we can face The worst that life can be

Encourage me Stand with me Help me to be okay
Hold my hand with strength Accept me

This will strengthen my soul Steel my heart
I can grab a hold Life will not beat me

Walk with me Solo steps are hard
Together we can face odds Friendship gives me hope

Maybe there is a light Even though I cannot see
Your faith in me One day will heal me

Friendship changes how I think It makes me better than me
I can be renewed Life is what I choose

Praying for the families of the Virginia Tech massacre

Father evil continues to surprise and overwhelm us. Please bring peace to the hearts and minds of the family and friends of those gunned down at Virginia Tech. Help them to work through the darkness of loss and walk toward your comfort and compassion. Help each person that is suffering to heal and live with this great injustice. Lord life can be so unfair. Encourage them and love them in such a way that they will know you in a deeper and more profound way. Jesus we know you love each one of us help us as we grieve.
Bless us this day.
