Beautiful Somehow Lyrics

Never been a fashion queen
I wear dresses, I wear jeans
I've even been known to wear my heart on my sleeve
I'm just your average kid next door
A plain, simple mystery
I'm a self-proclaimed Daddy's girl
With my share of idiosyncrasies
But You love me for me

CHORUS
I'm just fine
I see a smile from Heaven
My Father is proud
I know that I am simply, fearfully and wonderfully
Made in You
You make it beautiful somehow

I've got old fashioned sensibilities
I believe chivalry still exists
And I can be a princess
Even when there ain't no prince
So what if I'm right brained
I've got half a mind to disagree
I would rather write the book
Than go and read the movie

So even when I may not rhyme
You always give me reason...

CHORUS

Got my elbows on the table
My mind up in the clouds
I know I'm getting better
I can almost hear You laugh out loud
The more I trust in You
The more I find
What You create is no mistake
It's purpose by design

By Surprise Lyrics

Ive got a secret to tell
A midnight confession
I love the life that I lead
But its no obsession

Because Im waiting, anticipating
Watching for Your return
Youll come and get me
You know Im ready
Enjoyed my stay, but Youll steal me away

CHORUS
Like a thief in the night
Like a runaway train
Like a first class, lightning fast hurricane
Ill keep my ear to the ground
And my eyes to the sky
Im ready now but somehow
I know Youll take me by surprise

So Ill keep spreading the word
To everybody
Until the masses have heard
About that party

Because Im waiting, anticipating
Watching for Your return
Youll come and get me
You know Im ready
Enjoyed my stay, but Youll steal me away

CHORUS

Cause I R.S.V.P.d on the invitation
I sent it care of the blood
That saved me the spot
With the One who will come

CHORUS

Desperate Lyrics

Don't go, I'm a homesick child
Just stay and talk to me
Even if it's just for a while
Oh, I'm afraid of the dark
But You are the light
Stay by my side
Lord, without You...

CHORUS
I get a little desperate
Reaching out for Your love
I get desperate
To feel Your touch from above
I get desperate
Far away just won't do
I'm hopelessly, honestly, constantly
Desperate for You

Oh Lord, when You hung on that tree
You showed once and for all
That You were desperate for me
And I know You'll be coming back soon
I hope time will fly, I'll survive
But in the meantime...

CHORUS

Don't know what I did before You
Never really lived before You
But I want You to know that I...

Every Day Lyrics

Sometimes life is like a roller coaster
Flying away
I get caught up simply just surviving
From day to day

But in the midst of all the lists to do
I need some help to change my point of view

CHORUS
Every day Im giving You everything
Every thought, every word, every song I sing
It aint no matter what life may bring
I lay it down
Everyday You make sense of me in the midst of my insanity
Give me hope, give me love, give me strength, make me free
Every day of my life

If I love You with my heart, my soul, my mind
Then my life has found a new direction
It was never mine
Cause when my heart is truly fixed on You
I find meaning in the things I do

CHORUS

Not simply just surviving
Theres so much more Im finding
Than living life so blinded and confused
Cause where I find my freedom is serving at Gods feet and
Im listening, searching, just waiting, working
Every, every day

CHORUS

I Wonder Lyrics

Pondering mysteries with a girlfriend over tazoberry tea
And an open Bible
There we were asking all the deep questions about
Life and love and God and... and how it all came to be

And why this and why that and why me and why not and why
And why do I think this way?
I wonder why...

I wonder, wonder, wonder why
I wonder, wonder why
All of these questions echo in my mind
I wonder, wonder why

Throughout the rest of the conversation
I kept coming back to one thing I don't understand
Why would God leave all of heaven's glory
Just to come and live and die as a man?

And why grace and why mercy and why give it all for me, and why
And why does He love this way?
I wonder...

I wonder, wonder, wonder why
I wonder, wonder why
His love is so rich and deep and strong and wide
I wonder, wonder why

I wonder, wonder, wonder why
I wonder, wonder why
All of these questions echo in my mind
I wonder, wonder why

Every little thing that my mind can question
Just leads be back to one thing, God's love for me

I wonder why Your love is so amazing
I just can't believe it
It's so rich and wide
I wonder why

Love of the Lord Endures Lyrics

In all that I have found
Your evidence abounds
Ive always sensed Your fingerprints
If I just look around

And yet this grand display
Will all soon pass away
So I hold on to the mighty truth
That Your love is here to stay

CHORUS
The love of the Lord endures
The love of the Lord endures
If theres one thing I can be sure
Its that the love of the Lord endures

Life has let me down
In wealth, joy cant be found
Ive searched for peace in all of these
But I have always found

CHORUS

When I stumble
When I fall
When Im walking ten feet tall
Your love is there day after day
Even at the worst extreme
Or after I have been redeemed
Your love is there
And it wont let me go

CHORUS

Forever, forever

New Day Lyrics

Have you ever doubted what you're made of?
Have you ever fed your fear?
Have you ever seemed disconnected?
Has your laughter ever turned to tears?

It's alright, it's alright
You're not the only one

Have you ever made a silly faux pas?
Or kissed another dream goodbye?
Have you ever found out when time ran out
You needed one more try?
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

CHORUS
Oh yeah, it's OK, God brings in a brand new day
Another chance, another choice
Another hope, another possibility
All right, OK, no more time for yesterday
Open your eyes and you'll find
It's a new day, it's a brand new day

So wake up, wake up from your bad dream
Ooo, you gotta clear your head
There is opportunity knocking
When you're hanging by a thread

It's alright, a new sun's gonna rise!
Oh yeah, come on!

CHORUS

No more fear, it's a new day
No more worry, it's a new day
No more doubt, it's a new day
Just believe it, it's a new day!

It doesn't matter where your life has been
Just trust in Him
And let a new day begin, come on!

CHORUS

Alright, OK
Don't you worry 'bout yesterday
It doesn't matter what you've done wrong
It's gone, gone, gone, gone, gone
Everything's gonna be alright
Another chance, another try
Open your eyes cause the sun is about to shine
Open your eyes and you'll find...

It's a new day, it's a new day
It's a new day, come on, come on
It's a new day, it's a new day
It's a new day, come on, come on

It's a new day, come on!

The Love Of The Lord Endures Lyrics

In all that I have found
Your evidence abounds
I’ve always sensed Your fingerprints
If I just look around
And yet this grand display
Will all soon pass away
So I hold on to the mighty truth
That Your love is here to stay
CHORUS
The love of the Lord endures
The love of the Lord endures
If there’s one thing I can be sure
It’s that the love of the Lord endures
Life has let me down
In wealth, joy can’t be found
I’ve searched for peace in all of these
But I have always found
CHORUS
When I stumble
When I fall
When I’m walking ten feet tall
Your love is there day after day
Even at the worst extreme
Or after I have been redeemed
Your love is there
And it won’t let me go
CHORUS
Forever, forever

Wish Lyrics

For just a moment
I wish I could have been there
To see Your first step, hear Your very first word
Tell me, did You ever fall and scrape Your knee?
Did You know Your wounds would one day heal the world?

For just one moment
I wish I could have seen You growing
Learning the way of a carpenter's son
Just a little boy gazing at the stars
Did You remember creating every one?

If You passed by, would I have seen a child or a King?
Or would I have known?

CHORUS
I wish I could have been there
My only wish is to see You face to face
I wish I could have been there
Just to see You, Jesus, face to face

For just a moment
I wish I could have been there
When You left Your footprints upon the waves
To walk along beside You, never look away
Just Your whisper and the wind and sea obey

To see You feed the people
To feel the healing in Your touch

CHORUS

To hear You pray in the garden alone
Laying down Your will with each tear
To see You walk that lonely road
Willing to die for me

And in that moment
I know I should have been there
You took my cross and gave Your life

But You live again!
I wish I could have been there
I wish I could have seen You rise again
I wish I could have been there
My only wish is to see You face to face
Someday I'll be there, I'm gonna be there
I'll see Your face, Your mercy and grace
Someday, someday
Someday I'll see You, my Jesus
Face to face
