Rescue Story Lyrics

There I was empty handed
Crying out from the pit of my despair
There you were in the shadows
Holding out your hand you met me there

And now where would I be without you
Where would I be, Jesus

You were the voice in the desert
Calling me out in the dead of night
Fighting my battles for me
You are my rescue story
Lifted me up from the ashes
Carried my soul from death to life
Bringing me from glory to glory
You are my rescue story

You were writing the pages
Before I had a name
Before I needed grace
Singing songs of redemption
Every time I ran away
You were louder than my shame

And now where would I be without you
Where would I be? Jesus

You were the voice in the desert
Calling me out in the dead of night
Fighting my battles for me
You are my rescue story
Lifted me up from the ashes
Carried my soul from death to life
Bringing me from glory to glory
You are my rescue story

You never gave up on me
You never gave up on me
You are my testimony

One story about "Rescue Story"

  • Jacklyn says:

    For the first time I was able to speak about a few of my rescue stories. It was awesome, I could actually hear the Lord tell me ok it’s time for you to tell of yours. I was able to share on social media about some of the things HE rescued me from starting with a life of drugs to an abusive husband.
