Leading me out

He will lead me out into the light; 

I will experience firsthand his deliverance 
(Micah 7:9; NET).

1. Thank you for leading me,
Time after time,
Out of my darkness, Lord,
Into your light.

2. Thank you for leading me,
Day after day,
Out of my weakness
And into your might.

3. Thank you for leading me,
Week after week,
Out of my loneliness,
Into your feast.

4. Thank you for leading me,
Month after month,
Out of my fears, Lord,
And into your peace.

5. Thank you for leading me,
Year after year,
Out of my sinfulness,
Into your love.

6. Thank you for leading me,
When death draws near,
Out of my pain,
Into heaven above.

Take away

Look, I am making everything new (Revelation 21:5; NLT).

Lord,

1. Take away my fault-finding,
And give me a new mind.

2. Take away my bitterness,
And give me a new heart.

3. Take away my wretchedness,
And give me a new soul.

4. Take away my sinfulness, Lord God,
And make me whole.

Be renewed as you learn to know your Creator and become like him (Colossians 3:10; NLT).
