I have battled alcoholism in my adult life. I finally got sober January 2009 after 20 years. At the end of my alcoholism, I was hopeless and Godless. I tried to find my own solutions to my disease, but I always failed. Once I let go and let God, I have been given freedom of this affliction. I wish to freely share God's redemptive Mercy and Grace in my music.

Lyrics

With Your Right Hand

Written By: Christopher Miller

With Your Right Hand:

You are with me, To Lift Me Up, When I fall down
When this sea of life, It Gets too deep, That I may drown
I'm losing sight of You, As I further sink, In all my fears
You are the life vest, I desperately grab, I feel you near
I reach out my arms, And there you are, With your right hand
These wondrous shores, You placed me upon, Are Your saving sands

(Chorus)
With Your Right Hand, With Your Right Hand, You lift me up, I learn to stand
With Your Right Hand, With Your Right Hand, I find reason, I can understand
With Your Right Hand, With Your Right Hand, I learn to give, my right hand

Waves of hard times, Crashing down, I can't see through
When I am consumed, I start to lose, My sight of You
My biggest threat, for today, is carrying tomorrow's load
I begin to stagger, and under its’ weight, I will explode (or implode)
I must train myself, to live within, the day at hand
In the present moment, You walk close, lifting the burdens so I can stand

(Chorus)
With Your Right Hand, With Your Right Hand, You lift me up, I learn to stand
With Your Right Hand, With Your Right Hand, I find reason, I can understand
With Your Right Hand, With Your Right Hand, I learn to give, my right hand

When I fall, into despair, You are there
Like a safety net, You limit my fall, because You care
Faith in people, may let me down, But not in You
Then I remember, all I should do, is have faith in You
Instead of people changing, I need to change , so I do
You guide with council, and afterward, Your glory shines through

(Chorus)
With Your Right Hand, With Your Right Hand, You lift me up, I learn to stand
With Your Right Hand, With Your Right Hand, I find reason, I can understand
With Your Right Hand, With Your Right Hand, I learn to give, my right hand

Now I remember, Don't be afraid, For I am with you,
Don't be discouraged, For I am your God, I will strengthen you
And help you, I will hold you up, With My Right Hand

(Chorus)
With Your Right Hand, With Your Right Hand, You lift me up, I learn to stand
With Your Right Hand, With Your Right Hand, I find reason, I can understand
With Your Right Hand, With Your Right Hand, I learn to give, my right hand

(Chorus)
With Your Right Hand, With Your Right Hand, You lift me up, I learn to stand
With Your Right Hand, With Your Right Hand, I find reason, I can understand
With Your Right Hand, With Your Right Hand, I learn to give, my right hand

New Eyes

Written By: Christopher Miller

I was blinded by my
Own selfish ambitions
That I could not see beyond
My own condition

I was all I knew
From early in my youth
Well As far from the truth
As I Could be from You

(pause) You see, I needed…

(Chorus)
A new pair of eyes
Eyes of Your heart
Enlightened by Your Love
A purpose from above

Your Eyes knew who I was
Knew what I was to do
Before I ever knew
My journey included You

You enlighten my eyes
Dark nights turned to bright skies
As my heart cried out
Your hope began to sprout

(pause) And now I have….

(Chorus)
A new pair of eyes
Eyes of Your heart
Enlightened by Your Love
A purpose from above

(Bridge)
You opened up my eyes
To see more eyes awaken
With Your mercy and grace
Our past is not forsaken______

(Pause) With…

(Chorus)
A new pair of eyes
Eyes of Your heart
Enlightened by Your Love
A purpose from above

Now I see more eyes
Move from darkness to light
Watch Your Love intervening
Fill them with purpose and meaning

This is the substance
Of what I receive
As I carry your message
Watching new eyes come to believe

(pause) And they get….

(Chorus)
A new pair of eyes
Eyes of Your heart
Enlightened by Your Love
A purpose from above

The greatest part of all
To see new pairs of eyes
Carrying on the call
To the next person who falls

(pause) And give away their…

(Chorus)
A new pair of eyes
Eyes of Your heart
Enlightened by Your Love
A purpose from above

(repeat chorus)

Ask God

Written By: Christopher Miller

Ask God, Am I kind and Loving
For a heart, in need of healing
Ask God, And His Grace they'll be feeling

(chorus)
Living, loving, and forgive
Freedom from my own self will
Never praying for...
Myself

Ask God, for those who are needing
Who feel, their lives are sinking
Ask God, And He'll show them meaning

Living, loving, and forgive
Freedom from my own self will
Never praying for...
Myself

Ask God, To direct our thinking
To serve Him, And all His people
Ask God, And His strength will steeple

(Bridge)

Are we only thinking of ourselves?
And from ourselves we cannot run
Praying for Thy Will...
Be Done

(Repeat Verses and Chorus's one more time)

Ask God, Am I kind and loving
Ask God, For those who are needing
Ask God, To direct our thinking
Ask God, And we will...
Change

The Spiritual Concept

Written By: Christopher Miller

I used to live my life
All with this fear of God
Then there came all of this doubt
If I couldn't see it
Then there must be nothing
And that's all I could ever tout

The journey of self-knowledge
Well, it left me lacking
The hole in the soul grew large
So I poured in the booze
But my life sprung a leak
The four horsemen were now in charge

(Chorus)
The spiritual concept
It's not just a theory
I have to live it
Or it gets pretty scary
The spiritual concept
I can hear, feel, and see it

All my best thinking
Was a life full of drinking

So I made the decision
To go to the end
Embracing the intolerance
Of my bitter end

So I was in the right place
For Him to come in
Though I didn't even know it
My miracle begins

Another lost person
Who wasn't just like me
So different in life
Our stories shares the same strife

(Bridge)
The Spiritual Concept
Once Again I stand at this crossroad
A journey down the less traveled road

(Chorus)
The spiritual concept
It's not just a theory
I have to live it
Or it gets pretty scary
The spiritual concept
I can hear, feel, and see it

Though riddled with guilt
A new foundation was built

After sharing together
The feeling was clear
I didn't want to die
I wanted to live without fear

So God started working
On all of my senses
I can hear, feel, and see Him
As He broke through my fences

God showed up big
So I made the decision
To run in this life with Him
And fulfill His vision

(Chorus)
The spiritual concept
It's not just a theory
I have to live it
Or it gets pretty scary
The spiritual concept
I can hear, feel, and see it

Without to hard of terms
For my sobriety His presence confirms
