MAKING MY LIFE BRAND NEW (Count the Cost, Word Marquee Collection)

Words & Music by David Meece
Copyright 1983 Meece Music (admin by) WORD Music

There were times I felt so all alone
When everything went wrong
And nobody seemed to care
There were times when I was so afraid
I wanted just to run away
Until You, You came along

Chorus: And I thank You, Lord
For making my life brand new
For making it all so right
Making it all so beautiful

I owe it all to You, Lord
For making my life brand new
For making it so right
Making the old brand new.

I was so lost, lost inside myself
I couldn't see anything else
Except my foolish pride
But You came and tore those walls on down
Set my feet on higher ground
Now I know, I know who I am

And I thank You
For making my life brand new
For making it all so right
Making it all so beautiful
I owe it all to You
For making my life brand new
For making it all so right
Making the old brand new.

'Cause You gave my life new meaning
Gave my life the peace within my troubled mind
To help me carry on again

It may be hard believing
For someone who can't see it
But I know it's true (Deep inside)
Deep inside I know that it's true

(Repeat Chorus)

And I'm giving it all to You

(Repeat Chorus)

MY FATHER"S CHAIR (Once in a Life time)

Sometimes at night I'd lie awake
Longing inside for my father's embrace
Sometimes at night I'd wander downstairs
And pray he'd returned, but no one was there.
Oh, how I'd cry, a child all alone
Waiting for him to come home.

Chorus:
My father's chair, sat in an empty room
My father's chair, covered with sheets of gloom
My father's chair through all the years
And all the tears I cried in vain
No one was there in my father's chair.

Sometimes at night I sit all alone
Drifting asleep in a chair of my own
When sweet sleepy eyes peer down from the hall
Frightened by dreams they cannot recall
I hold them close, calming their fears
Praying they always will say,

Chorus:
My father's chair sits in a loving room
My father's chair, no matter what I do
My father's chair, through all the years
And all the tears I need not fear
Love's always there in my father's chair.

Sometimes at night I dream of a throne
Of my loving God, calling me home
And as I appear, He rises and smiles
And reaches with love to welcome His child
Never to cry, never to fear
In His arms, safe and secure.

Chorus:
My Father's chair sits in a royal room
My Father's chair holds glory beyond the tomb
My Father's chair, my God is there
And I am His eternal heir
Someday I'll share my Father's chair.
