You Made A Way

by | Music, Songwriting | 0 comments

When I was still in my sin
You love was poured out for me
You love was poured out for me
Though I was far from you
Your mercy came to reach me
Your mercy came to reach me

You came and sought me
For I was so lost

You made a way
When all was dark and I could not stand
You gave your light, You carried me
You made a way
When I believed I was out of reach
Your grace, Your love and your mercy found me

When I’m torn and tired
You give me strength to stand
You give me strength to stand
Though I doubt and fear
Your perfect Love drives out
Your perfect loves drives out

You came and you sought me
A child so lost and in need of your grace

Though I am weak and frail, desperate and in need
Still I know Your grace is everything I need
Though the storms may pass and the sea billows roll
I will press on, I will stand firm, I will hold on

You came and you sought me,
for I was a pearl of great worth

Why I wrote this …

There is incredible verse in the bible which says “While we were yet sinners” Christ came to show his ultimate love for us. And that is what this song is all about. Even though we were still in our sin, even though we are poor, even though we tired and torn, even though we doubt and fear, He sought us out to make a way for our sin to be dealt with, to make a way to lift us out of our poverty, to make a way to give us strength and cast out all doubt and fear.

His grace is all sufficient. His strength is made perfect in our weakness. He has made a way for us to know Him. He has made a way so we can know His love.

Song Writing Diary: This World

How this song started out was really the two chord structure from the Bm7 to the Asus4. I decided to tune the top E down to D, this just meant I could have a more open sound and when strumming the Bm shape I use in the song it meant the high wouldn't create any...
