One thing I know for sure, Nothing I did would make my heart pure.
You came to this earth and died,
I couldn't free myself from sin no matter how hard I tried.
If I was burned at the stake,
All it would do is my life it would take.
That still would not profit me, Because in sin I would still be.
If I possessed all the world's wealth, And enjoyed the very best of health, It could not make my eternity sure,
Nor, make my heart pure.
If I could produce good works by the ton,
It would profit me nothing without God's Son.
If everyone's burdens I could endure, It still would not make my heart pure.
If on a cross I would have died, Still God would not be satisfied.
If I gave everything I have to help the poor, It would not make my heart pure.
My righteousness Christ knew was a fake, He still didn't write me off as a mistake.
His life He gave to make it sure,
So by His blood, my heart can be made pure.
Only Christ can change the life of a sinner, Then, in all things make you a winner.
This I have learned and know for sure, Only Christ can cleanse and make my heart pure.

When we are weak You make us strong, You stand by us when everything goes wrong.
You touch us when we are sad,
You make us to rejoice, You make our hearts glad.
Lord, I have chosen the way of truth, My walk with You started when but a youth.
Great and holy is Your name, Never let me bring it shame.
In Your word I delight,
By it we put the devil to flight.
Nothing from You can we hide,
In You we are safe, in You we now confide.
My hands to You I raise,
And my voice with thanksgiving praise.
Thy word have I hid in my heart, And each day in Your word I start.
Your word tells me You are always just,
It is your delight when in You we have our trust.
Thy word is a light unto my path,
It shows me how to escape that day of wrath.
Forever in heaven is settled Your word.
It was passed down until one day I heard.
It is a lamp unto my feet,
It will guide me until God's harvest I reap.
In thy word is still my hope.
And with it all my troubles I can cope.
It shows me the way and what to do.
It keeps me until that day I go to be with You.
