Through all of the hills
And valleys roamed
That we must come to
Walk side by side
Follow the light
And we'll make it through
The winds, the rain
The storm
The weapons that are formed against us
The trying times
The sleepless nights
Just know that faith is with us

U Saved Me

length: 6:14
I was riding in my car one day
In the express lane rolling on the freeway
And suddenly the phone rings then I
Reached down beside me then I look
On the floor felt on the backseat
See I was drinking while I was driving
Never thinking bout what I was doing
I turned around and before I knew it
Here comes this truck now

Doctor said don't think he gonna make it
Family said make the funeral arrangements
Unplug the machine he's gone now
Then told my wife to be strong now
Then a small voice said until me
If you promise to stop drinking
I surrendered on that day
Now for ten year's I've been straight

You saved me [Repeat: x4]
Gave me a second chance
You saved me [Repeat: x3]
You saved me

Now I've been sitting in this chair
Waiting on the phone to ring
Praying up to god that someone will call
Me with a job opening
Cause it's been so hard for me
Month to month struggling to eat
But still there was no answer
I stop believing in his word and
Got so mad at him and
When somebody said god's good
I just laugh at 'em

But in the nick of time his blessing
Rain on me
By his grace the phone ring
A lady said were hiring and
That's when I knew

You saved me [Repeat: x4]

Now I was 18 out there on the block
Selling drugs
With a gun at my waist
And for people I had no love
See the streets was my home
Family and friends were all gone
Had no one to trust
And deep inside I was all alone
And a deal went bad one day
And it was enough to pause me
I was shot four times and before I
Knew it I was on my knees

Blood pushing out my body
My heart's beating faster don't know what I'm gonna do
I don't think I'm gonna last then
I began to flash back on the things
I done in my past
Then I heard a small voice that said
I'll give you peace if you believe
I accepted Christ that day
Hallelujah now I'm free

You saved me [Repeat: x4]

I was in the aisle of the grocery store
With a pain in my chest and I'm wondering
Where did it come from(I got tested)
And the results came back
And the doctor said I'm sorry but you got cancer
I could not believe it so
I call my mama to calm my nerves

(mama) she got down on her knees
(mama) she said a prayer for me
(mama) just keep on thanking Jesus
(mama) he'll give you what you need
(thank you Jesus)
Now that was five years ago
I don't have that pain no more
Doc said you can go home
Cause all that cancer's gone

You saved me [Repeat: x4]

You saved me(said you saved me)
You saved me(but you saved me)
You saved me saved me
Gave me a second chance)second chance)
hallelujah saved me
Saved me saved me
Whoa you saved me

You gave me it was by grace You saved me
I'm so thankful that You looked down on me
Saw me standing there
I was at the end of my rope no where to go
And you gave me

No where to go (and you saved me)
I was down and out to
I was doing drugs to
I was running the streets to
Never felt love
I was wilding out
You saved me
You stepped in ooh save me

You saved me

Now I was in a real bad abusive relationship
Knowing that, that was no way for me to live
A young girl like me, raised up in a good family
Way too young to endure such misery
And every night I cry myself to sleep from all the pain
And the more I prayed for sunny days it seemed to rain
(He hit me) at any given time
(He hit me) no reason at all
(He hit me) so so hard
(He hit me) my God, sometimes I'd fall
Mama asked what happened to me
And I'd take up for him
She said that devil's a liar
And pray get rid of him
And now I'm going to school
Hitting those books
I'm doing fine
He's out my life
I'm not confused
Got peace of mind
Man I tell you

Prayer changes (it changes)

I was a freshman in college and uh
I had just made it on the basketball team
I had all the skills it took to make it
But on my grades I would get nothing but all D's
And the coach came to me
And had a talk with me about my career
Said if you don't get your grades up
I'm gonna have to sit you down this year
Man as tough as I was I broke down and cried
'Cause everybody knows me
Knows that basketball is my life
(Algebra) I studied hard
(Chemistry) I gave my all
(Calculus) oh my God
(English) so many flaws
Playing ball didn't look to good for me
My future, could not see
I had lost all my beliefs
And gave up on all my dreams
Then I went to church on Sunday
And the pastor began to preach
It was like he was talking to me
When he said I can do all things
In Christ that strengthens me
And for me that was enough
Now that I went from a D
All the way to an A plus
I tell you prayer changes things

Me and my wife had a few problems
We thought that nothing could solve them
Listening to family members and so called friends
Man I tell you that's just how the devil creeps in
We were separated at least for a month or two
She was wilding in the clubs
And I was out there doing wrong too
And we would walk around the house
Putting each other down
I mean right in front of the kids
We would curse each other out
Then I was in a bad accident
And almost lost my life
And guess who was there for me
My wife
Now ain't it funny how He makes a way
When we said there was no way
I'm out the hospital and back at home
Planning another wedding day, I tell you

Prayer changes (it changes)

Now all of these things were happening in one family
But that's okay, cause there's nothing God can't achieve
I don't care what the problem in your life may be
Cause who the Son sets free, is free indeed
And if you didn't know, now you should know
All you have to do is take this family life for example
Now Mom and Dad are married again
Four kids now, cause they just had twins
Little sister all grown up now
She's a lawyer, married with one child now
Two years, big brother's out of college
And man he's got his hands full
Blessed with skills, blessed with knowledge
Now he's playing for the Chicago Bulls

You put the rainbow after rain
Woah
Created time
Now this ones mine
Gave pictures frames
Woah
Created man gave him woman
Why did you do that for me?

These are the questions asked before I lay me down and go to sleep
(ooh sometimes I wonder)
Sometimes I wonder why you decided to keep you hands on me
Of all the miracles, signs and wonders
There's still one mystery
How did you manage to love me?

You breathed the life right into me
Then made my heart beat
Woah
Created the mountains
And all of the deep seas
Flowers in the trees
Woah
You made tomorrow come again
You carved the strong winds
Woah
And after all I've done
Gave me a son
Tell me why would you do that for me?

These are the questions asked before I lay me down and go to sleep
(Right in the middle of my prayers)
Sometimes I wonder why you decided to keep you hands on me
Of all the miracles, signs and wonders
There's still one mystery
How did you manage to love me? (how did you manage that?)
How did you manage to love me?

Said I've got to know how (how did you manage to love?)
After all that I have done, oh Lord
How? (how did you manage to love?)
How could I have been so bad, oh Lord
How? (how did you manage to forgive me?)
Even when I didn't believe in me you believed in me Lord
How? (how did you manage to forgive me?)
Jesus you sacrificed your dear life for me

When I Think About You

length: 4:07
When I wake up in the morning time and see the sun I say
Hallelujah, thank you Jesus for waking me up today
I think about his goodness and the wonderful things he's done;
Forgiving me, setting me free and casting my sins away
And soon as I was about to fall you stepped right in on time
Picked me up, and let me know you had nothing but love for me
And those lonely nights when I thought that I gonna lose my mind (my mind)
Lord, You were my company

And now I feel joy (when I think about you)
I feel strength (when I think about you)
No pain (when I think about you)
And no rain (when I think about you)
I get glad (when I think about you)
And raise my hands (when I think about you)
Shout your name (when I think about you)
(When I think about you)

And in the midst of the storm you were the shelter in my life
Even though (I was doing wrong) and even though (I fell off)
No-one can help me out, the way you helped me whenever I was in need
When trouble was chasing, I was weak (mmm) you kept your hands on me
My God you sacrifised you life that I might live for eternity
Despite my faults, you heard my cry (yes you did) and forgave my inequity
No-one can understand, the way you understand when it comes to my heart
Lord you gave me a brand new start

And now I feel joy (when I think about you)
Feel strength (when I think about you)
There is no pain (when I think about you)
No rain (when I think about you)
I get glad (when I think about you)
Raise my hands (when I think about you)
And shout your name (when I think about you) Oh Lord
(When I think about you)

Listen
Even though your doubts will come (doubts will come)
Believe he gave his only son (all of the world) to all the world
He chose to love (oh, yes he did) so how can we not (how can we not) send our praises up

I feel joy (when I think about you)
Feel strength, yeah (when I think about you)
There's no rain (when I think about you)
No more pain (when I think about you)
I get glad, ohh (when I think about you)
Then I raise my hands (when I think about you)
Shout your name (when I think about you) oh I
(When I think about you)
I feel joy (when I think about you)
And peace (when I think about you)
Feel your presence (when I think about you)
Coming over me (when I think about you)
Then I start to fall, yeah (when I think about you)
Down to my knees (when I think about you)
And begin to pray (when I think about you) Lord help me
(When I think about you)
Then I see the light (when I think about you)
Startin' to shine right through (when I think about you)
It's a brand new day (when I think about you)
And my heart's renewed (when I think about you)
And all my fears are gone (when I think about you)
Away (when I think about you)
When my day looks cloudy (when I think about you)
It's gonna be okay (When I think about you)
Yeah-ohh-no (when I think about you)
(When I think about you)
How you gave me love (gave me love) (when I think about you)
And I gave you nothing (gave you nothing) (when I think about you)
How you woke me up (hey!) (when I think about you)
And started me on my way (started me on my way) (when I think about you)
See you did not have to do it (when I think about you)
But you did it any old way (when I think about you)

The Diary of Me

length: 4:20
Umm pum-pum-pum
Pum-pum, pum-pum, pum-pum

Look behind myself
As I reflect on all the memories
The times they come and go
Lost everything from friends to Family
If I could turn back the hands
There would be some things I'd change about me
I know that my past is not what my future holds

Where I come from
Who could believe
All the pain and misery
Look in my eyes and you'll see
The diary of me

Rewind my life
Just go back and correct all the wrong
And ask God to direct my path
So that I can make it home
And if I could turn back the hands of time
There would be some things I would change about me
But I know that my past is not what my future holds
'Cause

Where I'm from
Who could believe
All the pain, misery
Look in my eyes and you will see
The diary of me

Years ago a child was born (a child was born) (ooh)
And raised without a man (without my father, and wonder why he's in these streets) (ooh)

My mother's gone (mothers gone, yet still found the strength to pray for me) (ooh)
But still reached out her hand
Just open the book (na-na-na-na-na-na)
Turn the pages of my life (na-na-na)
And you will read
A true story about one man's journey

Where I'm from (ah)
Who would believe, yeah
That all the hurt and pain and misery (ah)
Look in my eyes (ah)
You'll see the diary of me (pum-pum-pum-pum-pum)
Where I'm from (where I'm from, who could believe) (ah)
Who could believe (the hurt and pain and misery)
