I'm Only A Man - (by Tom Balistreri)

Buffeted and stricken,
yet I still stand.
Help me dear God.
I'm only a man.

Not much more,
can I endure.
Send me release.
My peace secure.

Worthy Of Praise - (by Tom Balistreri)

You are worthy Lord of all praise.
You give all life and length of days.
You guide with love and teach Your ways.
Your mercy makes sinners amazed.

Faithful Vision - (by Tom Balistreri)

The view is clouded, the path is hidden,
yet in the Lord, I have a vision.
I trust in Him, to guide me,
to greater ways, I not yet see.

Orderly Steps - (by Tom Balistreri)

Lord make my steps orderly.
Then my spirit shall soar higher.
Guide where I fail to see.
Lead me to Your desire.

I Was Over

 A new life, a new soul.
A broken heart that's been made whole.
I thought I was finished but you made me start again.

All those things that caused me pain.
Dreams of mine I couldn't attain.
I thought I was finished but you gave me hope again.

It's amazing what love can do.
Even more that it comes from you.
I felt so unworthy but you didn't see it that way.

I want to sing, I want to shout.
And tell the world what you're about.
I thought I was over but you gave me life again.

A Morning Prayer

 I praise you Lord for this day.
Guide me please
show me your way.
Forgive my sin
cleanse me anew.
Help to walk
closer to you.
