Lyrics

You in Me

Written By: Nigel Soyer

You in Me

Verse 1
Open my eyes to another day
I am so grateful for your grace & mercy
Your presence is with me each step I take
And its because of you, I make it through
This promise I make
Everything that I long to be
You have so lovingly placed inside of me
And I’m so glad I’m not alone
And with every breath, I tell the world

Chorus
It’s you and me with every beat of my heart yah!
You capture me, control me, your love is an ecstasy
You’re lovely, so holy, so strong, I can’t break free
Nothing can take your place

Never have I known such joy within
No Matter the seasons of change, there’s peace deep within
Your spirit moves smooth in my soul
More precious than gold can’t be bought or sold, a treasure unfold
The promise of eternity makes me live my life pure & holy
Where you send me, yes I will go
You’re the air that I breathe, everything that I need.

Vamp
It’s you in me
With every beat of my heat yah!
It’s you in me
Every breath that I take!

Just Like You

Written By: Nigel Soyer

Just Like You

Before I knew myself, You had a plan
You called my name and said that I’m Your man
Prepared my destiny secured my place
Gave me Your Word that I would win this race
Conformed by the Spirit, transformed in my mind
I’m trading all, I’m no longer mine

(chorus)
To be just like You
The way You love and the way You give
A healing touch that takes away the pain
A life of faith that moves every mountain
With a heart that rejects every sin

Send Your spirit to live in me
He’s Your assurance of my victory
Anoint my head my cup runneth over
With grace a mercy my life You have covered
So here’s my heart and here’s my soul
Longer I that live but You alone

(chorus)
To be just like You
The way You love and the way You give
Healing touch that takes away the pain
Life of faith that moves every mountain
With a heart that rejects every sin

(vamp)
I wanna be just like You, just like You
With every step I take with every move I make

I'll Be There

Written By: Nigel Soyer

I’ll Be There

Tears of suffering fills your eyes
Your heart’s been broken another time
Who cares? Who’s gonna be there
You’re all alone
The winds of life they blow so cold
But I want you to know

(chorus)
I’ll be there in the times of trouble
I’ll be there in your times of need
I’ll be there in your times of sorrow
All you got to do is trust and believe
I am here, call on me, I will be there

The night is slowly drifting by
The light you need comes from inside
I’m here, there’s no need to fear
A little closer come to Me
Let Me love you tenderly
My love will set you free

(chorus)
I’ll be there in the times of trouble
I’ll be there in your times of need
I’ll be there in your times of sorrow
All you got to do is trust and believe
I am here, call on me, I will be there

(bridge)
Don’t you know that I will never leave you,
Don’t you know that you can count on me,
I’m true to my word, yes I am
All you got to do is believe

(chorus)
(vamp)

I am here, I am here, I am here(3x)
Call me.
