Track Name: Overwhelmed
Overwhelmed
©Debbie L. Rice (BMI) 2015
(Performed by Tammie McQueen)


Here I am
On my knees
In this quiet place, (or in my quite time)
You and me.

Speak to my heart
Tell me Your will
I can feel You here
When I am still….

(Chorus)
Oh Lord, when I’m in Your presence
There’s no place else I’d rather be
Fill me with Your wisdom or just hold me in Your arms….
I’m overwhelmed, overwhelmed with Your love for me.

(verse)
You bring me peace
In this place
When I make time for You
And seek Your grace

I breathe You in
And darkness flees
Refresh my soul, Oh Lord
You’re all I need

(Chorus)
Oh Lord, when I’m in Your presence
There’s no place else I’d rather be
Fill me with Your wisdom or just hold me in Your arms….
I’m overwhelmed, overwhelmed with Your love for me.


(Bridge)
Your love gives me strength
To move the mountain,
Your love gives me faith
To calm the sea

Storms may come but I believe
I will be safe
With Your arms
Holding me


(Chorus)
Oh Lord, when I’m in Your presence
There’s no place else I’d rather be
Fill me with Your wisdom or just hold me in Your arms….
I’m overwhelmed, overwhelmed with Your love for me.
Track Name: They Chose Me
They Chose Me

Scared and all alone
In the orphan home
No mom or dad
To sing them lullabies’

Waiting night and day
Just to hear them say
“Too young”, “Too old”
“Not right”, “We’re just not sure”

They sing themselves to sleep
They know no other way
No family to teach
Them how to pray

They long to feel the love
A family can give
Their empty eyes reflect
The life they live

(Chorus)
Why can’t we see?
Why can’t we hear?
The empty lives
Just waiting to be filled

Why can’t we be
His hands and feet
Why can’t we change the world
For just one tiny life.
Why can’t it be:
“They chose me”.

(Bridge)
That’s how it is with Jesus
He chose you as His own
He saw your situation
He knew you had no hope
He never would forsake you
He knew just what to do…..
He chose you.

(Chorus)
Why can’t we be
His hands and feet
Why can’t we change the world
Just one life at a time
We’re all the same
All in His name
A family adopted by the Son
Why can’t we see…
Why can’t it be… “They chose Me”

When we first met,I wasn't looking for love
I wasn't ready to be found.

I’d been hurt so many times before
I was afraid to let love get off the ground.

The feelings you had for me were very strong
Your love was starting to show.

I made excuses, I put up walls,
I wasn't ready to know.


(CHORUS)
Then I let Your love surround me
And I found that I was suddenly, FREE
Of the pain and the hurt that had held me,
FREE of the lies and the walls that surrounded me.


I was suspicious, I didn't know
Where this was going to lead.

Falling for you, I kept my walls intact,
I was afraid to need.


(CHORUS)
Then I let your love surround me
And I found that I was suddenly, FREE
Of the pain, and the hurt that had held me,
FREE of the lies and walls that surrounded me,
FREE now to need, and to know that You need me too,
FREE to be loved, and to know that I love You.



When we first met, I wasn't looking for love
I wasn't ready to be found.

You gave me your Son, You gave me everything,
You finally tore my walls down.

And when I let Your love surround me
I can know that I am finally FREE.
