Gary Valenciano – Take Me Out Of The Dark lyrics

Just what is it in me?
Sometimes I just don't know
What keeps me in Your love,
Why you never let me go

And though you're in me now,
I fall and hurt you still
My Lord, please show me how
To know just how you feel

You have forgiven me
Too many times it seems
I feel I'm not what you might call
A worthy Christian after all

And though I love You so
Temptation finds it's way to me

Teach me to trust in You
With all my heart
To lean not on my own understanding
I just forget
You won't give me what I can't bear

Take me out of the dark, my Lord
I don't wanna be there

You've never left my side
You gave Your hand to me to hold
Oh Jesus, I'm no longer in the cold

And yet, I leave You there
When I feel satisfied
I'd like to thank You every day
Not only when I feel that way

I've never known a Man
Who'd give His life for sinners like me
And yet, because He loves us so
He's promised us eternity
And we can have that promise
And be His if we have faith
And just believe

Teach us to trust in you
With all my heart
To lean not on my own understanding
We just forget
You won't give us what we can't bear

Take us out of the dark, My Lord
'Cause we don't want to be alone
Take me out of the dark, My Lord
We don't wanna be there, My Lord

Trust in You with all my heart
Lean not on my own understanding
I just forget
You won't give me what I can't bear

Take me out of the dark, My Lord
Cause we don't want to be alone
Take me out of the dark, My Lord
I don't want to be there

    Same as you are jmzm. Thanks to lord for my salvation. Lord is our savior and master. And he sacrifice his son jesus crist for our sin. Lord thank you for all you have given to us to teach us what we do and to serve not only you but serving others.
    Sorry for all the sins that we made to you and to other and to take all of us out to the dark.

    Sobrang ganda talaga ng song na to kasi habang naririnig ko ito, nabubuhayan ang loob ko lalong-lalo na kapag ako'y nadidepress at nawalan ng pag-asa sa buhay. It really touches my heart, it awakens me that I have to be very strong to all of my challenges in life. Hindi ko talaga makakalimutan ang song na ito. Sobrang thankful ako kay lord dahil hindi nya ako pinababayaan sa lahat ng pagkkataong ako'y walang wala sa buhay.

    I always cry whenever I hear this song. It always touches me straight to my heart. Especially the line where it says that I'm not a worthy Christian after all. It pierced through my heart because I have felt the impact of the words in my life. He always forgives although I sometimes took Him for granted. I called Him everytime I needed something and when I have that thing that I wanted, I sometimes forget about Him. I really am not worthy to be called a Christian but still He accepts me without questions. Thank you.

    The Lord is my shelter, I shall not want. The Lord our God is our savior, He is the provider of everything. He makes the impossible, possible. He protects everything. Our part is to praise Him and glorify Him. To pray to Him always. God indeed is a very kind to us all.

    Even though we are in the dark, jesus never leaves us alone,. Jesus loves us, and never forget to thank our lord for everything that he done to us. Have faith and believe with all of your heart that god is always at our side to guide us and to love us,. We love you jesus and sorry for the sins that I'm done many times and you still forgiven me too many times and thank you to take me out of the dark, my lord.
