Lyrics

Here with Me

Written By: Steve Goddard / Cheryl Wilson ©ASCAP

These 4 walls held
all the days of my life
Everyday I'd wake up and pray
I was somewhere else
A heart yearning to break free
From a prison no one sees

But now I'm here with you
I am not alone
When you're here with me,
this place becomes my home
I will follow You
wherever You may lead
In You I'm free

I regret mistakes I made
when I was lost
I find healing and release
at the foot of Your cross
The past can't be undone
Just look at.... how far I've come

I am here with You I am not alone
When you're here with me,
this place becomes my home
I will follow You wherever
You may lead
In You I'm free

Bridge:
To be the real me,
weaknesses and all
That's where I find Your strength,
that's where I find My call
Out of the darkness
and into new life

Now I live this life
so another life can say:
I am here with you, I am not alone
You are here with me,
You've made my heart Your home
And I will follow You into eternity
In You I'm free I’m free…

Take Me Back

Written By: Nick Steudle ©ASCAP

VERSE:
Watching the pages in the story
of a life rewritten
I've seen it before,
I don't like the way it ends
I've prayed until my fingers hurt more than my heart
I need You to help me
feel whole again

CHORUS:
Cause I'm standing on the ground
looking up at the sky
Searching for an answer
I want to know why
Bring a calm to the sea
that's raging in me
And Take me back
to the place in time
Take me back
to the place in time...
it didn't hurt to be me

VERSE:
Watching my days pass by
more quickly than ever before
Knowing the sands of time
are running out
I'm hoping that I make
it through another day
I'm wanting to know Your love
and never doubt

CHORUS

BRIDGE:
I know I can't go back in time
to change my world today
I've got to get some
peace of mind...
Tomorrow may be too late

CHORUS

Take me back
to the place in time...
it didn't hurt to be me

Say Goodbye to Yesterday

Written By: Cheryl Wilson, Nick Steudle, Steve Goddard, Jerold Reams, Matt Renko ©ASCAP

VERSE:
This life is a mystery
unfolding before my eyes
I can leave a legacy
or buy into a world of lies
Some days may not be easy
But I live in light of eternity

CHORUS:
Tomorrow I will say
goodbye to today
Leave behind the sorrow the pain
I'll press on
For You have a perfect plan
for my life
My salvation is in sight
Your there to light my way
As I say goodbye to yesterday

VERSE:
I live to be a witness
so others will know
of your healing love
There's more to life than happiness,
I want to please You
whatever the cost
I'll pay it willingly
To lead a life to eternity

CHORUS:
Tomorrow I will say goodbye to today
Leave behind the sorrow the pain
I'll press on
For You have a perfect plan for my life
My salvation is in sight
Sweet Jesus light my way
As I say goodbye to yesterday

BRIDGE:
Letting go of the past
pressing on towards the prize
I'm running this race to the end
Today is the day to rejoice and praise
The joy of the Lord is my strength

My Last Page

Written By: Steve Goddard / Cheryl Wilson ©ASCAP

My life’s a broken road
Your loves the only hope
I’ve ever known
Come with me I’m walkin’ slow
Into the valley we go

In the shadow of my doubt
Darkness falls, it tries to block you out
It’s your light that never fades
It leads me night and day

I know how my story ends
Without reading my last page
The price for my sin was already paid
You are here with me to lead the way

In life or death I need not fear
For You are with me, you are always here
I take comfort in Your promise, I know
Someday you will lead me home

I know how my story ends
Without reading my last page
The price for my sin was already paid
You have come for me to lead the way
You are here with me to lead the way

I know how my story ends
Without reading my last page
The price for my sin is already paid
You have come for me to lead the way
You are here with me to lead the way

Jesus take my hand - lead the way
