5 Marty Nystrom Songs To Worship God With

Marty Nystrom Songs

Marty Nystrom songs accompanied me through my early Christian walk. Like Don Moen, I didn’t know these 5 songs are written and sang by him. Now I do. Compiled for my personal enjoyment.

1. Times of Refreshing

I love this song. I hummed it all the time. Indeed, in the presence of the Lord, my soul is restored, my mind is renewed.

Lyrics for Times of Refreshing

Times Of Refreshing
Here In Your Presence
No Greater Blessing
Than Being With You
My Soul Is Restored
My Mind Is Renewed
There’s No Greater Joy, Lord
Than Being With You

Times Of Refreshing
Here In Your Presence
No Greater Blessing
Than Being With You
My Soul Is Restored
My Mind Is Renewed
There’s No Greater Joy, Lord
Than Being With You

My Soul Is Restored
My Mind Is Renewed
There’s No Greater Joy, Lord
Than Being With You

There’s No Greater Joy, Lord
Than Being With You

2. Your Spirit is Drawing Me

Your Spirit is Drawing Me was released in 2008 by Hosanna Integrity. It has a slow tempo, which is great for entering the secret place of the Most High.

The secret place in the song reminds me of Psalm 91:1 where the Psalmist sang of the rest in the secret place of the Most High.

He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
2 I will say of Yahweh, “He is my refuge and my fortress;
my God, in whom I trust.”

Psalm 91:1-2 WEB

In John 14:26, Jesus said that,

But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things, and will remind you of all that I said to you.

John 14:26 WEB

So when the Holy Spirit call and draw, it is to Jesus.

Lyrics for Your Spirit is Drawing Me

Your Spirit is drawing me
Calling me to come away
Your Spirit is drawing me
And taking me away
To a higher place

I can hear You say
My beloved come away
To a secret place with Me
I will not delay
Oh Lord I will obey
I want to come away
With You

When my heart is overwhelmed
With the cares of this life
You lead me to the rock
That is higher than I

3. Your Grace is Sufficient

Have you noticed that the more you try to “improve” yourself, the worse it get?

It is because we are trying to do so with our own strength. Whether it is a bad habit or addiction or character/personality trait, it gets worse when you try to do something about it without Jesus.

He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Most gladly therefore I will rather glory in my weaknesses, that the power of Christ may rest on me. 10 Therefore I take pleasure in weaknesses, in injuries, in necessities, in persecutions, and in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then am I strong.

2 Corinthians 12:9-10 WEB

I find the 2 Corinthians 12:9 verse comforting. It means that Jesus know how we feel and think. And He told us not to labour without Him.

The verse doesn’t mean that we ignore or deny that we have weaknesses. How can weaknesses not be changed in the presence of Christ?

It is wonderful to be able to lay our weaknesses at Jesus’ feet. He has said that His power is made perfect in weakness. Our weaknesses are not something to be regretful about. In our weaknesses, we receive and experience Christ’s power.

What is a better source of power? Our own or Christ? Christ of course right?

Marty Nystrom outlined in this worship song the reason and basis that we can believe and declare the Christ’s grace IS sufficient for us.

Lyrics for Your Grace is Sufficient

Your grace is sufficient for me
Your strength is made perfect
When I am weak
All that I cling to, I lay at your feet
Your grace is sufficient for me

I'm no longer striving to merit Your love
I rest in Your promise to me
That all of my sins have been
Washed in Your blood
Your mercy is all that I need

Your grace is sufficient for me
Your strength is made perfect
When I am weak
All that I cling to, I lay at your feet
Your grace is sufficient for me

You see me as righteous because of the blood
That made the atonement for me
Your mercy has triumphed
Where I should be judged
So now, by Your grace, I am free

Your grace is sufficient for me
Your strength is made perfect
When I am weak
All that I cling to, I lay at your feet
Your grace is sufficient for me
Your grace is sufficient for me

Prayer: Jesus, thank you that your work is complete. Your grace is sufficient. In fact, it is more than sufficient. Whenever I see and feel my weaknesses, I can turn to You instead and lean on You. Your power rest in me.

4. You are Here

You are here among us
For we have gathered in Your name
We can feel Your presence
In this place

You are here among us
You are enthroned upon our praise
You are here here to heal and here to save

You are here in our midst
How we’ve waited
For moments like this

Have Your way in this place
Holy Spirit, come, do as You wish
We are changed as You move in our midst

5. As the Deer

As the deer panteth for the water
So my soul longeth after Thee
You alone are my heart's desire
And I long to worship Thee

Chorus
You alone are my strength, my shield
To You alone may my spirit yield

You alone are my heart's desire
And I long to worship Thee

You're my friend
And You are my brother
Even though You are a King
I love You more than any other
So much more than anything
