Lyrics

Believe To See

Written By: Carmen M Perez

Believe to See

I was feeling sorry for myself
I put my dreams back on the shelf
I got down on my knees
Begged the Lord to help me please
Seeking a place where I belonged
Asked Him, “Where did I go wrong?”
He simply said, “Believe to see.
Trust Me, you need to believe.”

Chorus 1

“You need to believe before you can see
And no matter what goes wrong
Faith in Me will make you strong
Believe with all your heart
I will change the ways things are
With Me you will go very far.”

I’ve seen so many dreams fade away
Now I keep the faith and pray everyday
He has His reasons,
But this is my new season
Fear and doubt I’ve tossed aside
Got on board, came for the ride
Oh, my life has changed so fast
Trust Him, He gave me peace that lasts

Chorus 2

I needed to believe before I could see
No matter what’s goes wrong
Faith in Him will keep me strong
I believed with all my heart
He has changed the way things were
With Him my dreams are coming to pass

If you won’t believe until you see
I say you’ll see when you believe
Give praise to the King,
Lift your head up high and sing
Many blessings are yours to win
It doesn’t matter where you’ve been
If things don’t go as planned
Reach out; He will take your hand

Chorus 3
You need to believe before you can see
And no matter where you’ll travel
He’ll be your guide if you follow
Believe with all your heart
He will change the way things are
With Him you’ll reach the stars

Bridge
Singing praises to God in Heaven, you will surely fly
These are some things that money could never buy
May His light shine on you; shine bright for all to see
Anything can happen if you just believe
You may have less ups than downs, but let faith turn it around
Believe and you will be free, just believe to see.
Believe and you will be free, just believe to see.

Messengers of God

Written By: Carmen M Perez

Messengers of God

I had the world on my shoulders
Full of pity I couldn’t see
That even in my darkest hour
An angel was there guiding me

Chorus 1
I have an angel on my shoulder
One that God has provided for me
I have an angel on my shoulder
A messenger of God sent to guide me

I felt a tap on my shoulder
Turned around but no one was there
Then I heard a voice softly whisper
I’ll carry your load with great care

Repeat Chorus 1

If you’re seeking peace and refuge
Not really knowing where to go
Do not just sit there alone crying
Angels never go with the flow

Chorus 2
You have an angel on your shoulder
One that God has provided for you
You have an angel on your shoulder
A messenger of God sent to guide you

Bridge
Angels take on all forms, but they’ll always lead you home
Don’t despair, hang tight, and never give up the fight
Help is on its way to lead you to a brighter day
If the world is on your shoulders, make sure to clear a space for your angel

Repeat Chorus 2

Yes, God sent His angel to you
