Jesus, son of David, have mercy on me.

Light my path and guide my way.
Make me faithful, so I’ll stay
Close to You throughout the day,
Devoted to You in every way.

Jesus, son of David, have mercy on me.

Open my eyes that I may see
The precious truth that You have for me.
Open my heart to love as You do.
Enable me to be faithful and true.

Jesus, son of David, have mercy on me.


God sets before you life and death.
Choose life.

Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life.
The devil is a liar and a thief.
He wants to kill your hope and steal your joy
And fill your days with endless grief.

Jesus came to give unshakeable peace
And the only freedom that’s real.
He wants to fill your heart with everlasting joy.
He wants to love and bless and heal.

God sets before you life and death.
Choose life.


Your Word brings life to save my soul.
Your Truth brings light to make me whole.

Your perfect love casts out my fears,
Comforts me, and dries my tears.

I’m in the shadow of Your wings
Where you teach my heart to sing.

Safe and secure from all alarm,
Your faithful love keeps me from harm.

I will bless You all my days.
You fill my heart with songs of praise.


Following Jesus, my Lord and my Savior
Leaving the past behind

I press on to the mark of God’s high calling
Leaving the past behind

Forgiving, forgetting, and giving to Jesus
Leaving the past behind

Replacing old voices with the truth of the Bible
Leaving the past behind
