All The Way To Calvary Lyrics

All The Way To Calvary
(written by Alfred Ackley)
(recorded by The Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir & Isaac Odeniran)

All the way to Calvary, He went for me
He went for me, He went for me
All the way to Calvary, He went for me
He died to set me free
Although I had so many many sins
Jesus took them all away
And He pardoned me
Although I had so many many sins
Jesus took them all away
And He pardoned me

Angels And Peace Lyrics

Words and Music by Phillip LaRue and Natalie LaRue
Angels watch over me
As I go to sleep
Sing praises to the King Angels
Lord, my heart I bring
My soul longs for Thee
Needs Your love, Your peace
Your peace
Explanation:
"This is a dreamlike song talking about angels. Ever since I was a kid, I've had a fascination with angels. I just love angels; I love the idea of angels. It's just such a beautiful concept."-Phillip
"This song is more like a lullaby. It's like a prayer that comes to you in the middle of the night when you are having a hard time sleeping, and it's just you and the Lord. This is what you would say."-Natalie

Beautiful Lyrics

When I'm with you
I see the world in a different way
You shine so bright
When I'm close to you
I feel the way that you really are
It moves my heart
You make me want to be
So beautiful
You make me want to be
Just like you
Beautiful
I think about you
And how you change everything you touch
I love you so much
You amaze me
You lift me up to a higher place
Put a smile on my face
You make me want to be
So beautiful
You make me want to be
Just like you (x2)
Beautiful
You make me want to be
So beautilful
You make me want to be
Just like you (x2)
Beautiful (x5)

Beautiful Savior Lyrics

All my days I will sing the song of gladness
Give my praise to the fountain of delights
For in my helplessness, you hear my cry
And waves of mercy poured down on my life
(Chorus)
Beautiful Savior, wonderful counselor
Clothed in majesty, Lord of history
You're the way, the truth and the life
Star of the morning, glorious in holiness
You're the risen one, heaven's champion
And you reign, you reign over all
I will trust in the cross of my Redeemer
I will sing of the LAMB that never fails
Of sins forgiven, of conscience cleared
Of death defeated and life without end
(Chorus)
Beautiful, beautiful Savior
Wonderful counselor, beautiful risen one
(Chorus)
I long to be where the praise is never ending
Yearn to DWELL where the glory never fades
WITH countless worshippers SINGING one song
And the voices of the nations
Sing worthy, worthy, worthy
Worthy beautiful, beautiful one
Jesus you are worthy, beautiful, beautiful one
Jesus you're worthy, beautiful, beautiful one
You are worthy, beautiful, risen one

Because Of You Lyrics

Because of You
By Norman Hutchins
Written by Norman Hutchins
Album: Where I Long To Be

There is no way I could have made it
Made it this far without You
You brought me through many hard trials
Im still alive because of You

When the enemy comes in like a flood
Lord You were always right there
Guiding me and providing for me
I am still alive
Its all because of You

Thank God I made it

Because of You (3x)
Yeah!!!
Thank God I made it
Im still alive because of You

Between The Two Of Them Lyrics

They married back in '32
They were young and love was new
And every day that feeling grew
Between the two of them
When work grew scarce and times got bad
Hope would chase away the sad
Hope was sometimes all they had
Between the two of them
The forties came and the fifties went
A mortgage note replaced the rent
They made the most of each day spent
Between the two of them
The children all turned out just fine
And he retired in '69
Left with oh so little time
Between the two of them
Today I braved the graveyard rain
And placed a rose between their names
That's the most that ever came
Between the two of them
Though I miss them both so much
His crooked smile, her gentle touch
And the pleasure of growing up
Between the two of them
What a pleasure just growing up
Between the two of them

Blank Page Lyrics

Words and music by Shaun Groves
My life is like a canvas
And on most days I do my best
To fill it in with my mess
Til' your image can't be seen
How I love self-centered sketches
Painting my ways to the edges
But I think what I like best is
How it looks so much like me
No more now
I'm laying my colors down
Til my picture fades away
Chorus
I am coming clean
I am offering
Every space in me for you to fill
And I am coming clean
I am promising
If you'll write on me your perfect will
Then I'll be a blank page
Maybe my life's like a story
That was written for your glory
But I guess I found that boring
So I took your pen in hand
And I scribbled you a bit part
And I made myself the big star
But replacing you proves too hard
Guess I don't know how it ends
No more now
I'm laying my best plans down
My story fades away
Chorus
Make your masterpiece
Out of each day in me
I beg you, beg you
Where my plans have laid
Come write your better ways
I beg you, beg you
Lord I need you
Story Behind The Song:
I almost quit this business recently. I love my job and the people I work for and with, but I reached a point at which I couldn't balance my friendships, family and work - and all my plans to do so were falling apart and leaving me more tired and torn every day. I finally told a friend of mine that I wanted to go back to being a guy without a record deal, with just a guitar sitting on the floor writing songs that nobody would hear. I wanted to be a blank page - no dreams or plans of my own. So I prayed this song. (Jeremiah 29:11, Isaiah 55:8)

Broken Lyrics

Broken when I'm kneeling
I find in my hidden shelter with you
Raw and pure is treasure I know
Deep within your presence O Lord
And this hopefulness you give me
Nothing can compare
And as the world will change
You'll always be the same
And the days will fade away
But you remain the same
Broken when I realize
That you love me in my weakness
And you have given more in my life And I'm humbled by your kindness O Lord
And you will always be the same

Can't See Us Lyrics

Organized rhyme gangsta connected, from ghetto to ghetto and city to city we worldwide respected
Feared and rejected, rhymes perfected, no need for a none
Holy ghost protected, it's the don of the rap clique, don't trip
Spit lyrical rhymes that reach 'em killas and the convicts, Piru's, B-doggs
And 'em shaw crips and street pimps with these West coast bomb hits
12 years strong, still cant see my clique, sick with the spit
Tell them prayer haters, get a grip, and don't trip, this a brand apocalypse
Two double O three, aint no stoppin' this, from California to the projects of the boogie down
We infamous for bringing that gospel God-core sound, you cant see O-R-G-A-N-I-Z-E-D-R-H-Y-M-E.
Chorus
Yall cant see these G's, playas and ridas from the ORC,we the dopest clique
There ever gone be, straight up out of the dirty bay, ohh wee, Cali hits is what we bring
Nuttin' less only the best from the west, so get up out of your seat
Baby and let me see you do the gospel boogie.
Peligroso, like a shoot out, with the po-po, or hydros with no struts in tha low-low
Ya'll must be crazy tryin' to mess with an assassin, I'm flashin and blastin anyone harrassin'
Find a catch a thrashin, and if then asking, tell em Bone said it
Leave ya black and blue with a lyrical weapon, calling the paramedics
Ya'll cant see us like a cheetah in the jungle, you're all bark, we're all bite, ready to rumble

Destiny Lyrics

Have you ever had a dream about accomplishing great things?
And you can clearly see the invisible as reality
And when you start to push, to bring it to pass
Comfort zone people start to laugh (and question you)
They tell me just to slow down
Relax and ease my mind
Young man where are you going?
What are you trying to find?
But I can't sit and be still
I have a mission to fulfill
You ask me why?
You ask me why?
I'm on a mission
Chorus:
It's my destiny my purpose and design got a hold of me
There will be no stoppin till I reach my goal
If you wanna come you better hit the road
It's my destiny my purpose and design got a hold of me
There will be no stoppin till I reach my goal
If you wanna come you better hit the road (come and run with me)
Have you ever taken time pondering the depths of your mind?
And you can clearly see the invisible as reality
And when you start to push, to bring it to pass
Comfort zone people start to laugh (and ridicule you)
They tell me just to slow down
Relax and ease my mind
Young man where are you going?
What are you trying to find?
But I can't sit and be still
I have a mission to fulfill
You ask me why?
You ask me why?
I'm on a mission
Chorus 3x
My destiny
Is reality
About you and me yea
It's no fantasy
My destiny
Got a hold of me gonna reach my goal
Better hit the road

Dippin' Lyrics

This is what we call gospel, alpha, mega, funky, boogie, disco, music
Made for you to cruise with, in ya Jeep, Cadillac or tha Benz
Down the strip with ya girl and your friends, just floatin', west coastin'
Hittin' switches in the ragtop boastin', just rollin' on hundred spokes
Ridin' with your ken folks, bumpin' this jam and getting high off the holy ghost smoke
One puff, 2 puff, 3 puff, 4 puff, 5 I'm feeling real high, leanin' to the side
With the homie Mista Grimm, in tha O.G. gangsta ride
Candy apple with the custom interior, inferia, when it be comin' to rippin' these microphones
Mi familia, is the dopest, no hokus pokus, tha locest vocalist and most ferocious
Rapper is bogus, when I spit, they hopeless
Chorus
We just dippin', in the Lincoln, with the hommmies and the OG's trippin'
Off me rims and the chromed out engine, hydrolics switches and the pioneer system
We just dippin, hittin switches, in the 6-4, rollin' deep in the trenches
Sttin' in chromed out 22 inches, bumpin that west coast sound to the fullest!
Dip, dip, bounce, bounce, front, front, back, back
Right Dayton spokes in the air as I hit that, C-O-R-N-E-R-T-B-O-N-E-&-M-I-S-T-A-G-R-I-double M
Rapiando, cantando, in the 6-4 brincando, pitando, at the homies
Cuz me and Grimm got flava like asada and cilantro, tocando oldoes
As we ride slow, y corriendo, from the po-po, somos los mejores brother
Oh you didn't know, from West Covina to fogtown Frisco, "O"riginal
In the classic blastin' war, hardcore with the suicide doors, L-dang
Riviera, Cutlass, whatever you're in, just keep bumpin' this

Don't Wait Lyrics

Lazy day
Just room enough for me to think and pray about each new day
Draw me from my drowning apathetic state
Stormy day
Just watch the rain melt all my doubt away
Fire away the heated arrows to my lukewarm state
Don't wait
Don't wish away
Today is going to be the day He made
Don't waste
One day is all that we've got to give and take
Bend and break my mind and heart to feel the urgent need
To take all I see and pour my life into eternity
And take it all today and give everything
And take it all today
Lazy day
You're in everything that comes my way

Everything Lyrics

Words and Music by Phillip LaRue, Natalie LaRue and Asher
In my life I can see
So many things tomorrow could bring
So many dreams tomorrow could dream
In my heart, I don't know
Where this path will lead me
But I know I'm letting go
'cause....
I'm tired, I'm tired of running alone
I'm tired, I'm tired of running alone
CHORUS
I give You everything, my heart,
My hope, my dreams
I lay them all on the floor
And when I lay them down
You give me Your crown of love
That I've been waiting for
I have been waiting for
A peace and love that walks with me
Lead me beyond what's unseen
I have been longing for
The truth to lead me to You, my love
I'm tired, I'm tired of running alone
But I know, I know I'm never alone.
REPEAT CHORUS
I've been waiting for You
I've been longing for love
You're everything to me
Explanation:
"In surrendering your life to God, you'll find greater rewards in life. If you give everything to the Lord and lay everything on the floor, in return God can fully fulfill the deep longings and needs that you have. There are heavenly blessings and rewards for surrendering to the Lord, and how sweet is that?" Natalie & Phillip

Everything About You Lyrics

You chased me
I caught you
So glad we found each other
We whispered forever
To share our lives together
To watch our dreams unfold
*Chorus
And I love everything about you
Everything you are
You'd catch a falling star
If I asked you
And I couldn't live a single day without you
You hold me in your arms
And once again, I know
That I'm the only one for you
The way you laugh, the way we dance
The way you hold my hand
The way you give, the way you kiss
The way you look at me
You make life beautiful
*Repeat Chorus
*bridge
Oh, I love the light that shines in your eyes
When you talk about our girls
And love the way you smile when they walk
Into a room
Oh, I love how you care about brokenness
How injustice moves your heart enough
To make a change
You give all you are
Everyday
*Repeat Chorus
I love everything about you
You hold me in your arms
And once again I know
That I'm the only one for you
The only one for you
The love of my life
So glad I found you
Yeah...

Faithful Lyrics

You know my future like you knew my past
And Your word concerning me was made to last
Forever
And I know Your word is Your integrity
And that You'd do just what You said You would
You are faithful
Heaven and earth will pass away
But Your word will remain
Your word will remain faithful
Now all I have be stripped away
But to You I remain
To You I remain faithful
I know that Your love is forever strong
And I will sing about it all day long
Forever
I know that there is no one else like You
And no one else can do the things You would
You are faithful

Favorite Song Of All Lyrics

Favorite Song of All-
Words & Music by Dan Dean
He loves to hear the wind sing
As it whistles through the pines on mountain peaks
He loves to hear the raindrops
As they splash to the ground in a magic melody
He smiles in sweet approval
As the waves crash to the rocks in harmony
Creation joins in unity to sing in majestic symphonies
Chorus
But His favorite song of all
Is the song of the redeemed
When lost sinners now made clean
Lift their voices loud and strong
When those purchased by His blood
Lift to Him a song of love
Nothing more He'd rather hear
Nor so pleasing to His ear
As His favorite song of all
He loves to hear the angesls as they sing
"Holy, holy is the Lamb"
(Holy, holy, holy is the Lamb)
Heaven's choirs sing in harmony
Lift up praises to the great "I Am"
(Hallelujah, Hallelujah)
But He lifts His hands for silence
When the weakest saved by grace begins to sing
And a million angels listen as a newborn soul sings
"I have been redeemed"
Repeat Chorus
Bridge
It's not just melodies and harmonies
that catches His attention
It's not clever lines and phrases
that cause Him to stop and listen
But when any heart set free
Washed and bought by Calvary begins to sing
Repeat Chorus
Holy, holy, holy is the Lamb
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Field Of Souls Lyrics

Field of Souls
Words And Music by Wayne Watson
Chorus
We work the field of souls, together you and I
Some fields are blooming now, other fields are dry
We are not the same but differences aside
We will work the field of souls, together you and I
Verse 1:
One is off to foreign soil to work a distant land
Another anchors close to home to hold a neighbor's hand
Who has served the Father most and who has labored best
That life devloted to our God, that devotion will be blessed
(Repeat Chorus)
One shouts the gospel in the streets
For everyone to hear
He's bold to everyone he meets
And the Word is loud and clear
Another cries alone and prays in silence on her knees
Before the throne day after day
Where human eyes don't see
(Repeat Chorus)

God Of Us Lyrics

Words and music by Shaun Groves
Hope has come
To the world
Heaven's son is
Born to earth
To hide beneath our
Flesh and bone
Call us friend
And call this home
Emmanuel
God with us
God with us
Emmanuel
God with us
Love has come
Weighted down
By splintered beam
And thorny crown
To take our nails
And taste our steel
Spill his life
And grace reveal
Savior
God for us
God for us
Savior
God for us
Heaven come
And take our hand
Whisper till we understand
Move our stubborn
Hearts to love
The very least
As you love us
Spirit be
God in us
God in us
Spirit be
God in us
Emmanuel
Savior
Spirit be
God of us
God of us
Story Behind The Song:
I'm fascinated by the idea that God is self-centered. He doesn't ever do anything with me as the ultimate reason. Jesus was born, died, lived again and lives in me today for only one reason: to make God known. Being a disciple of Christ means abandoning every other goal and desire and living to do the same - to make Him known. More and more I believe that He is made known not by bumper stickers and T-shirts, not by church attendance or the right answers, not by being good, but by loving the least.

Gulf Coast Highway Lyrics

Written by Nanci Griffith, James H. Brown Jr and Danny Flowers
Gulf coast highway, he worked the rails.
He worked the rice fields with their cold dark wells.
He worked the oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico.
The only thing he's ever owned is this old house here by the road.
And when he dies he says he'll catch some blackbird's wing,
He will fly away to heaven, come some sweet blue bonnet spring.
She walked through springtime when he was home:
The days were sweet, their nights were warm.
The seasons changed, the jobs would come; the flowers fade,
And that old house felt so alone when the work took him away.
And when she dies, she says she'll catch some blackbird's wing,
She will fly away to heaven come some sweet blue bonnet spring.
(Instrumental Break)
Highway 98, the jobs are gone.
They tend their garden, they set the sun.
This is the only place on Earth where the bonnets grow
And once a year they come and go at this old house here by the road.
When they die, they say we'll catch some blackbird's wing,
And we will fly away to heaven come some sweet blue bonnet spring.
Yes when they die, they say we'll catch some blackbird's wing,
We will fly away together come some sweet blue bonnet spring.

So open up heaven, open it wide,

House Of A Thousand Dreams Lyrics

He says, I'm just a man
I walk with my hand
But lately no work has been around
I wish that I could put more on the table
Provide a life I'm sure my family dreams about
But there's crack in all the walls and all the window
And the flies, they find their way in through the screen
I just pray that hope will go on living
In this house of a thousand dreams
And she says, my husband's a good man
Gives all that he can
And I know he thinks he's let me down
I just want him and the children to be happy
It's not always easy but it's all I dream about
So I'll find some yard silk curtains for the window
I'll sew some yellow trim along the seam
I keep praying hope will go on living
In this house of a thousand dreams
Their boy says, my Daddy's a strong man
My mama she loves him
And they love my brother and sister and me
Sometimes at night we lay out in the backyard
And take turns wishing on the first star we see
And the cricket always see outside the window
And I love to feel the windblow through the screen
I should hope that we can live forever
In this house of a thousand dreams
I should hope that we can live forever
In this house of a thousand dreams
The kids are always singing
The kids are always singing a song (singing, singing)

How Do You Love That Way Lyrics

"How Do You Love That Way"
[Verse 1]
I must have made You cry a million tears
Used enough mercy for a million years
You'd think by now Your grace would disappear
Guess that's why You called it love
You spread Your arms across eternity
You shed Your blood to buy my liberty
You fight for me with all intensity
With an undeniable love
[Chorus]
How do You love that way
I need You to teach me to love that way
Why do You love that way
Whatever You do don't stop
[Verse 2]
Addicted to my selfishness and greed
Thinking my foolishness could meet my need
Pulled up flowers tryin' to make room for weeds
But it doesn't uproot Your love, I'm so crazy
You just correct me-try to slow me down
Rain on me softly when my leaves are brown
Resuscitate me when I hit the ground
So tenacious with Your love
[Chorus x2]
[Bridge]
I wandered and wavered a ship lost at sea
I treated Your mercy so frivolously
Yet an ocean of love You poured over me
Your love won't stop
[Pre-Vamp]
How do You love oh Lord
Will You teach me to love that way
Why do You love
Whatever You do don't stop
[Vamp]
By holding me, oh Lord
You're showing me
By teaching me, oh Lord I plainly see
Your love indeed, it amazes me
Whatever You do don't stop
Why You would smile upon this broken man
It blows my mind I just don't understand
For the love I need is in Your nail-scarred hand
Whatever You do don't stop
[Repeat Vamp-Out]

I Am Blessed Lyrics

I am blessed, blessed, blessed
blessed, blessed, blessed
Yes, Yes, Yes
I say yes
VERSE:
Oh, for a closer walk with Jesus
For Him, I'll do what only pleases
He blessed my going out
And my coming in
Every thing I touch
My life is in Your hands
I'll go
Where'er He leads me, I will follow
Where Jesus leads me, I'll go
Where'er He leads me, I will follow
Where Jesus leads me, I'll go
He promised never to leave me
He promised never to leave me
He said He'll never leave me nor forsake me
He'll never leave me nor forsake me
I say yes
Where'er He leads me, I will follow
Where Jesus leads me, I'll go
Where'er He leads me, I will follow
Where Jesus leads me, I'll go
He promised never to leave me
He promised never to leave me
He said He'll never leave me nor forsake me
He'll never leave me nor forsake me
He promised never to leave me
He promised never to leave me
He said He'll never leave me nor forsake me
He'll never leave me nor forsake me
I am blessed!

I Believe God Lyrics

I Believe God
by Martha Munizzi
Album: No Limits
I believe God
His word is true
I believe God
What He said He will do
I believe God
He will always come through
I will choose to believe
I believe--God
(Repeat 3 times or as necessary)
(Talk:
There comes a time in every believers
life that your faith will be tested
And whose report will you believe?
You must believe the report of the Lord.
Make a choice to believe God, no matter
what you're going through, no matter what
your situation. No matter how bad it looks,
trust God. Believe that He'll make a way for
you. Trust His word. Choose to believe)
***The rest of this is more like adlib
over "I believe God" and "I receive God"
Lord we believe You, we receive from You
Lord we want more than just to believe you
We desire to receive You
Lord we open up our hearts
Lord we lift up our hands
And we say we receive, we receive
Let us take You at your word
And I believe You
I receive everything you have for me
I belive in your resurrection power
Yes I do
I believe that you died for me to set me free
I believe it
Everything you said to me
Is written in red
Jesus, Jesus
I believe in Jesus,
For my family, for my Children
I believe You, I belive You
I believe you, I believe You
Open my heart and I receive God
I believe God

I Love You Lyrics

Words and music by Shaun Groves
Don't you get it?
I'm not gonna leave you out
Don't you get it?
I'm not gonna leave you now
The rope your hopes are dangling from
Is unraveling and coming undone
But I will always be holding on
To you
Chorus
I love you
I love you
I love you
Don't you get it?
I'm not gonna leave you out
Don't you get it?
I'm not gonna leave you now
You're embarrassed and ashamed I can tell
Living in your handmade hell
Well that's a place I know too well
I do
Chorus
I'm just glad that you didn't run
Cause we've all been there everyone
I know you're feeling dirty and dumb
No need to
Story Behind The Song:
A good friend of mine made a big mistake. He was afraid to tell me or any other Christians what he had done, even after admitting his mistaking and doing all he could to make things right. I found out that he kept his sin secret because as a child his parents had been ridiculed and shunned for what some in their church felt was sinful behavior. He believed that the Christians he knew would treat him the same way. Instead, I wrote him this song. I could have filled it with theology, but he knows that. What he didn't know was that I love him - because God loved me in spite of my sin. (John 13:35)

I Survive Lyrics

I can feel it comin' now - that same old pain
Tryin' to work me like a prisoner
Shackled bound and shamed
But in my soul I know
That You give me the strength it takes to break these chains
I survive
Life keeps comin' at me
Doesn't break me
I'm never going down
Anytime
I need strength I know You'll help me make it
I survive
Don't know what tomorrow brings
Don't wanna guess
But with You by my side I know I can face any test
And so I'll honor You by standing tall
And breathing in this love that I've been blessed
That's my promise - Won't compromise
You're the truth - that kills the lies
You'll pull me through it - I'm not afraid
You rescue me - day by day
With you I can never fake it
Won't go down - You help me take it
Help me make it
We can face so many trials in this life but the best part is looking back and realizing that WITH God we survived. Our trials come so we can comfort others in their trials now. 2nd Corinthians 1:4. God is our true strength and only refuge, Psalm 91:2. Share your story and encourage someone else.

I've Got An Angel Lyrics

VERSE:
I've got an angel with me, in my sleep
Watching over me and my soul to keep
I've got an angel looking after me
Going to and fro and waiting me
When I'm in need
Protects me from all dangers
Seen and unseen
Stripping the powers of darkness
Angels encamped aroung me
Touching me in the morning
My eyes to see
Got singing angels
I can hear'em, I can feel'em
Encamped all around me
Got ministring angels
They're beside me, to guide me
Encamped all around me
It's an army of angels
(All around me) Oh yes!
Got an angel watching over me
Keeping me from all hurt, harm, and danger
Oh oh oh oh, Got an angel watching over me
Keeping me from all hurt, harm and danger, yes!
Got singing angels
I can hear'em, I can feel'em
Encamped all around me
Got ministring angels
They're beside me, to guide me
Encamped all around me
Got an angel watching over me
Keeping me from all hurt, harm, and danger
Oh oh oh oh, Got an angel watching over me
Keeping me from all hurt, harm and danger,
Angels watching over me
Angels watching over me
Angels watching over me
Angels watching over me
Angels watching over me
Angels watching over me, over me
Angels watching over me
Angels watching over me, over me

If I'll Ever Lyrics

I feel much stronger now I know you
Your beauty pierces my heart
And I get it
Your love is so much deeper
And bolder than the purest dark
And if I'm stronger
It's cos the fear is over
You've taken all my shame
And I don't know if I'll ever fathom
What it took to give it all away
And I don't know if I'll ever know
All the debt I'll never have to pay
You take the coldest part of my heart
And turn it to overflowing joy
And I get it
All I need is in you
And this beauty is what you have restored
And if I'm stronger
It's cos the fear is over
Your love has paved the way
You gave your life in place of
What I should have paid my debt for
How could I have ever lived without you

Innocent Blood Lyrics

Waiting for the hour to strike
I've been longing for this journey
To get out of my broken world and
Reacg the land of the holy
Aiming for the goal in my life
I need to clear my mind
Shelter for my bleeding heart
In the presence of my Saviour
Jerusalem - here I come
Jerusalem - my live has just begun
Now I'm here at last on holy ground
To see the sacred places
Fot the first time in my life
I'm free without obligations
Smoke and fire block out the sun
Dead bodies all around
Innocent blood
Smoke and fire block out the sun
Dead bodies all around
Innocent blood
Warm blood is pouring down my face
My heavy legs are aching
I survived and what's the cost
I'm back in my living hell
Jerusalem, what have you done?
Jerusalem, you killed the only one
My God I'm asking you now
Why your holy land is falling
What is left and who is right?
I need you now to guide me
Dawn of terror, rise again
Will the killings ever end
Will this broken world be healed
Or an eternal battlefield
People dying, God is crying
Will this evil ever end?
Love your father, hate your brother
One day you all must repent
Smoke and fire block out the sun
Dead bodies all around
Innocent Blood
Smoke and fire block out the sun
Dead bodies all around
Innocent blood

It's Not About Us Lyrics

It's Not About Us- by The Chambers
It's not about us
It's all about Him
It's not about us
It's all about Jesus
It's not about us
It's all about Him
It's not about us
It's all about Jesus
(Repeat throughout the song)
Don't give us the credit
Everything we do is all about Jesus
All we doing is giving God the glory
And giving God the praise
Don't worry about your situations
Give it all to Jesus
He can handle it
It's all about Him
When you see me giving God the praise
Don't look at us, it's all about Jesus
It's all about Jesus
He's worthy of the praise
Of the glory, of the honor
Give Him the praise
He died on the cross for you
For you and I to be saved
It's all about Jesus
Nobody, nobody but Jesus

It's Real Lyrics

Do you ever wonder what's reality?
Can you believe in something you can't see?
Is it just an emotional roller coaster fantasy?
I remember those were questions of my own
Till I made my heart his home (home)
Now I speak the truth of a miracle
I'v been saved by love that's tangible
(and I know that it's real)
Chorus:
Ain't no doubt about it
So real
I know I've gotta have it
The spirit lives in my soul
I want my life to show
(that it's real)
Ain't no doubt about it
So real
I can't live without it
It's in my heart
I want the world to know
(know that it's real)
(so real)
Do you want it?
You can have it for yourself
Gotta believe
Trust him and you will achieve
Anything is possible
There is nothing you can't do
Once you open up your heart and let him in
He will never let you go
Oh no, no
He can turn your darkest night into a brighter day
And give you life
He's the only way
(oh I know that he's real)
Chorus
(i know that he's real)
Bridge:
It's real, it's real within my soul
So real I want the world to know
Not by my power or by might
But by my spirit says the Lord
Every time I close my eyes I feel the spirit always near
If the Lord is for me tell me who then shall I fear
(who shall I fear)
(i know that it's real)
I know that it's real
Chorus 2x
(that it's real that it's real so real)

Jesus Lyrics

Words and music by Shaun Groves
When we love the least
When we love the weak
When we love these
We love Jesus
Jesus brings a meal for tips
Jesus trying hard to quit
Jesus raising two alone
Jesus drives a heavy load
Chorus
When we love the least
When we love the weak
When we love these
We love Jesus
Jesus with worn wrinkled hands
Jesus sows a patch of land
Jesus hides a tattooed arm
Jesus keeping dinner warm
Chorus
Jesus waves a foreign flag
Jesus wrings a washing rag
Jesus leans on prison bars
Jesus swinging in my yard
Story Behind The Song:
I have met so many people who hate God because those of us who claim to love God haven't loved them yet. And I believe now that church services, Christian music and books are not God's primary means of convincing them otherwise. We are. They will know Him by our love for them. Yet I still find it difficult at times to love everyone I meet - not just the upstanding and clean - as if I am loving Christ Himself. (Matthew 25:40, 1John 4:19-21)

Judgement Day Lyrics

I've seen them falling everywhere
Like candles fading unaware
Imprisoned by a world of glass
We fight for freedom, but when will we face it
Sinners and saints living under the same sun
Holding the key to the world in thier hands
Our time on earth's drawing nearer the end
In the light of judgement day
We bow our heads for our pride
Hiding under the dreams that died
What lies beneath might be revealed
So we keep running, from the face of God we turn
Sinners and saints living under the same sun
Holding the key to the world in thier hands
Our time on earth's drawing nearer the end
In the night of judgement day
Sinners and saints living under the same sun
Holding the key to the world in thier hands
Our time on earth's drawing nearer the end
In the light of judgement day

Lift Up Lyrics

Words and Music by Phillip LaRue and Natalie LaRue
In my heart there is a choice
And in my throat there is a voice
That wants to boldly speak of
You today
Speak Your truth in this time
Where darkness fall before it's night
And Lord, I pray above all else today....
That I will lift up Your name
And if I fall down, show grace
Completely love You
Love You today, today
So come and break me of my pride
Enough for me to be a light
Standing firm foundations made of faith
And I will lift up Your name
And if I fall down, show grace
Completely love You
Love You today, today
I want to lift up Your name
And if I fall down, show grace
Completely love You
Love You today, today
Explanation:
"This is a simple song about realizing there is a desire in our hearts to serve God and to strive for God and to do good-not because we want to be better than the world but because we long to like Christ. This is a daily choice and decision because we continually mess up and realize that God's grace covers a multitude of sins."-Natalie
"We are going to fall down and mess up, but that's why we have God's grace. I could not make it on my own. The Law was given to us to show us that we cannot do everything right."-Phillip

Love Won't Leave You Lyrics

I think I caught you just in time
I caught you trying to survive
Broken pieces in your heart, never mend
But every hope you've ever had
Can breathe again
Love won't leave you empty-handed
Broken down and somewhere stranded
Love won't leave you hanging on for life
Cause love is
Love is always true
God is love
And love won't leave you
I wanna say you'll be okay
Always doing things the hard way
Living paralyzed by fear
But you know
You can let it go today
And save tomorrow
Love is gonna free your mind
Love is gonna steal your pride
And even though the hard times come
Love is gonna make things right
I think I caught you just in time
Love is gonna save your life
I believe that when we are in the darkest of places in life one of the most important things is to know we are not alone. The first time I heard this song I was loving the melody and "liking" what it was saying....... until I heard the last line in the Chorus. "God is love and love won't leave you." I remember being in the room with the rest of Avalon and throwing my pen down on the table and saying "I love it." We do have a God that has promised to NEVER leave. He has never left me and, wherever you go, He will always be with you too. I believe it.

Made Lyrics

Made
by Lisa McClendon
Written by Lisa McClendon, Evelyn Keene and Keith McMasters
Couldn't grow long hair if I tried
Quite the little bony girl all my life
Needed attention
Love and affection
This journey of love is not what I was getting
Then one day I began to see
How beautiful God made me to be
No longer needed assurance from someone else
Cause I'm cute to myself

Fearfully and wonderfully made
Hand made by God and He don't make mistakes
And I'm looking pretty good on the inside
And it shows on the outside
Took some time now it's plain to me
Everything you see is supposed to be
And I'm looking pretty good on the inside
And it shows on the outside

Tried so hard to be accepted
But instead I was rejected
And by the way while I'm thinking bout it
Let me say I made some mistakes
I compromised and did it for the wrong
Giving in instead of holding on
But these are the things you do to please someone else
When we don't think much of ourselves

Bound by
What others believe
Didn't know
That I was created unique
I let their negativity be my reality
Now I
Don't have to feel insecure
I'm made
In the same image as my Lord
Comfortable to live freely as me

Nearer My God To Thee/ Peace Be Still Lyrics

Nearer, my God, to Thee, nearer to Thee!
E'en though it be a cross that raiseth me,
Still all my song shall be, nearer, my God, to Thee.
Nearer, my God, to Thee,
Nearer to Thee!
Though like the wanderer, the sun gone down,
Darkness be over me, my rest a stone.
Yet in my dreams I'd be nearer, my God to Thee.
Nearer, my God, to Thee,
Nearer to Thee!
He says peace, peace be still
Lifts his hands, peace be still
And like a child the winds obey him
When he says peace be still
He says peace, peace be still
Lifts his hands, peace be still
And like a child my heart obeys him
When he says peace be still
Hear his voice peace be still

Need You More Lyrics

Words and music by Shaun Groves
I just want a place to rest
Look out on a day's sunset
Someone there to share it with
A hand to hold when this world turns
Lord I want so many things
What I need has never changed
No matter what I chase and crave
I need you more
I need you more
I just want to live in peace
Pass without an enemy
With a smile laid on my face
Without a cause to bend my brow
Lord I want so many things
What I need has never changed
All this wanting only makes
Me need you more
I need you more
I just want to cling to grace
That has filled my empty place
And my heart with gratitude
For so much more than I deserve
Lord I want so many things
What I need has never changed
Teach my wayward heart each day
No matter what I chase or crave
That all this wanting only makes
Me need you more
I need you more
Story Behind The Song:
Playing at colleges and universities I meet a lot of single people - people who believe they are in great need. They tell me they need a major, a degree, a spouse, a job and money. They're just like me but a lot more honest. I've realized over time though that my "needs" are often left unmet or, once met they are replaced by new ones, to cultivate dependence upon God. In the end, after chasing want after want I end up, time after time, realizing what it is I was made to crave. (Psalm 73:25)

No One Else Lyrics

Heavenly Father, there is no one greater
How excellent is Thy name in all the earth
Oh Thou most high, the Creator of life
You're the Rock, the Fortress, and Deliverer
(Chorus)
I'm going to sing Your praises everyday
God to tell the world about Ya
Going to lift my voice, make a joyful noise
And this is why because there's
No one else (not even mother)
No one else (not even father, no)
No one else (not even lover loves me like You do)
No one else (no need to fake it)
No one else (no one)
No one else compares to You
Alpha and Omega, the beginning and ending
You control everything that's in between
Lily of the valley, completely lovely
Reigning King there's a refuge under Your wing
(Repeat Chorus)
(Bridge)
No one can even come close
You can search now and forever
It's not at all about what You have done
It's who You are, just who You are
I'm going to sing Your praises everyday
Got to tell the world about Ya
Going to lift my voice, make a joyful noise
Ain't never seen nothing like Ya

No Time To Lose Lyrics

How long will I carry on?
I'm searching for the answer
Seems like I'm running inside of my head
No ends and no horizons
Is this the way it's got to be?
I need to find the answer
Is this a dream or is it reality?
Inside my head I hear a voice
You can't get rid of the blood on your hands
The time is here, you have to choose
Seek redemption, set your soul free
My way to go is hard to find
I'm caught in the middle
There's something far beyond the distant sky
Lead me to the bringer of life
They told me he's here inside my house
Where can I find him?
The sands of time are running, I need to go
Inside my head I hear a voice
You can't get rid of the blood on your hands
The time is here, you have to choose
Seek redemption, set your soul free
No time to lose,
Bring me to the holy cross
No time to lose,
I can't take the pain no more
No time to lose,
Bring me to the holy city
No time to lose,
Salvation's all I need
No time to lose,
Bring me to the holy cross
No time to lose,
I can't take the pain no more
No time to lose,
Bring me to the holy city
No time to lose,
Salvation's all I need

Oh The Blood Of Jesus

Oh, the blood of Jesus!

Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

OK To Cry Lyrics

Words and Music by
Phillip LaRue and Natalie LaRue
God will save you, boy
You just have to believe
That beautiful things will come
From broken times
Just like these, just like these
God could save you, girl
In this desert time of need
Just lay your ashes down
In hope of what you'll receive, you'll receive
CHORUS
And it's OK to cry, it's OK to Cry
It's OK to wonder
And as your tears fall down,
They heal the ground
A place that once was dry
It's Ok to Cry
God will save us now
Let His presence bring us peace
Lay your burdens down
Let them fall His feet
REPEAT CHORUS
The fears are great in your mind
Your heart just aches for a sign
But there is hope and there is grace
In these gray skies
REPEAT CHORUS
It's OK to cry
Explanation:
"As I went through the Larium incident, I kept asking, why me, why did this happen? Here I am the leader on a missions trip: I was the one scheduled to give the main last devotion, and this whole situation completely breaks me. One day last fall I was walking around the house, I looked in a mirror and I sang the first verse to myself. I hear Natalie singing the words as if to herself but I can also hear her singing them to everyone listening."-Phillip
"There can be hope in falling apart. There is peace and hope in realizing you are weak. It's then you realize. God saves you in spite of yourself." -Natalie

One Of Those Days Lyrics

Words and music by Shaun Groves
At the risk of sounding shallow
Maybe trivial or trite
Emotional or mellowed
Well, how can I say this right?
Guess, I'm not the kind that figures
Life's all rainbows and blues skies
Still I just can't help but notice
I've got no good cause to cry
Chorus
It's just been one of those days, one of those days
Every glass half full, every drop lemonade
Just one of those days, one of those days
All my worries to bed
And my faith wide awake
Hey, hey, hey
Just one of those days
Just one of those days
There's a smile I can't turn down
For a dance across my face
And the way I see things now
A frown would just be out of place
Cause I know you're in your heaven
Yeah, with both hands on the wheel
And somehow this simple knowing
Has infected how I feel
I'm not blind to imperfections
Still a realist by trade
A pragmatic, pessimistic, over-thinker
On a break
Story Behind The Song:
I get tired of Christian musicians with sullen faces as if to say, "Jesus loves me but I'm not happy about it." But at the same time I'm such a realist that I'm also tempted to pat them on the back and say, "Thanks for not pretending Jesus makes all the hard parts of life go away." I'm such a Nirvana era, let's-be-honest kind of guy, which usually means that I dwell on the struggles of life. But if I'm really honest, I have to admit that I'm happy a great deal of the time, too. It's just not as cool to say that I guess. Oh well, I did anyway. (Psalm 28:7)

Orphans Of God Lyrics

Who here among us
Has not been broken
Who here among us
Is without guilt or pain
So oft' abandoned
By our transgressions
If such a thing as grace exists
Then grace was made for lives like this
(CHORUS)
There are no strangers
There are no outcasts
There are no orphans of God
So many fallen
But, Hallelujah
There are no orphans of God
Come the unwanted
And find affection
Come all ye weary
Come and lay down your head
Come ye unworthy
You are my brother
If such a thing as grace exists
Then grace was made for lives like this
(CHORUS)
There are no strangers
There are no outcasts
There are no orphans of God
So many fallen
But, Hallelujah
There are no orphans of God
O Blessed father
Look down upon us
We are your children
We need your love
We're out before
Your throne of mercy
And seek your face
To rise above
(CHORUS)
No matter where I go or who I meet, I find we as human beings are all the same. We all want to be loved and accepted no matter what. Only God, our father is truly capable of that kind of love all the time. What comfort we can find in knowing that we are all His children no matter where we come from or what we've done.

Paul And Peter Walked Lyrics

Paul and Peter walked across the land
They told a story of just one man
A Carpenter from Galilee
Who healed the sick and made the Blind man see
Yes, Paul and Peter walked, they did not ride,
They had no Chariot, Lord they could not fly
So Paul and Peter walked, one step at a time,
Across the mountains and the valleys wide
So if it's to far (Travel light~)
And if its too tough, (Walk at night~)
And if the road is too rough (Make it smooth),
If you don't have the time (there's a time to lose)
Yes Paul and Peter walked, they sang a song
Calling children to walk along
Those who follow, and those in need, they carried children or they could not speak
Yes, Paul and Peter walked, they did not run,
Through the rain or the burning sun
Some learn it early, some learn it late,
That the road is winding, that the road is straight
So if it's to far (Travel light~)
And if its too tough, (walk at night~ )
And if its too rough (Make it smooth),
If you don't have the time (there's a time to lose)
So if it's to far (Travel light~)
And if its too tough, (walk at night~ )
And if its too rough (Make it smooth),
If you don't have the time (there's a time to lose)

Peace To Shine Lyrics

Words and Music by Phillip LaRue and Natalie LaRue, Matt Bronleewe and Ty Wilson
Shame, these clouds have come my way
So faithful to betray
The worries of today
Come down to me
CHORUS
Lord, I need Your peace to shine
( I need Your peace to shine)
Through the darkness of my life
(Darkness in my life)
In Your grace, I cannot hide
(Grace I cannot hide)
Lord, I need Your peace to shine
( I need Your peace to shine)
To shine
Wait, I wait for You to break
These fears my heart creates
And hold fast to the way
Your love and hope remains
Lord, thank You that You're near
In the darkest of my shadows
You are here
REPEAT CHORUS
I need You, I need Your peace to shine
Lord, I need Your peace to shine
Through the darkness in my life
REPEAT CHORUS
I'm crying out to You
I need Your peace to shine
Shine on me
I'm crying out to You
I need Your peace to shine
Shine on me
Explanation:
"Simply put, this song comes from Philippians 4:6-7 which says, 'Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, will guard your heart and your minds in Christ.' We wanted to write a song with pop sensibilities without sacrificing our desire for in-depth lyrics: 'Peace to Shine' is it."-Natalie

Prayer In Open D Lyrics

(Emmylou Harris)
There's a valley of sorrow in my soul
Where every night I hear the thunder roll
Like the sound of a distant gun
Over all the damage I have done
And the shadows filling up this land
Are the ones I built with my own hand
There is no comfort from the cold
Of this valley of sorrow in my soul
There's a river of darkness in my blood
And through every vein I feel the flood
I can find no bridge for me to cross
No way to bring back what is lost
Into the night it soon will sweep
Down where all my grievances I keep
But it won't wash away the years
Or one single hard and bitter tear
And the rock of ages I have known
Is a weariness down in the bone
I use to ride it like a rolling stone
Now I just carry it alone
There's a highway risin' from my dreams
Deep in the heart I know it gleams
For I have seen it stretching wide
Clear across to the other side
Beyond the river and the flood
And the valley where for so long I've stood
With the rock of ages in my bones
Someday I know it will lead me home

Pressure Into Praise Lyrics

Pressure Into Praise
(written by Lucinda Moore)
(recorded by Lucinda Moore)
Verse 1:
Turn your pressure into praise,
give Him glory everyday.
Lift those hands and be set free,
walk into your victory.
Verse 2:
Picked myself up off the ground,
all my troubles had me bound.
Satan tried to come and steal my joy,
still got praises for the Lord.
Chorus:
Victorious, you are blessed.
Victorious, you are blessed,
turn your pressure into praise.
Verse 1
Verse 2
Chorus
Bridge:
Turn your pressure into praise,
give Him glory every day.
Don't you cry no more,
give it to the Lord;
turn your pressure into praise.
Vamp 1:
The victory, you've got it.
The victory, turn it into praise.
Vamp 2:
Turn it into praise,
turn it into praise,
turn it into praise,
turn it into praise.

Reaching Lyrics

Words and Music by Phillip LaRue, Natalie LaRue and Monroe Jones
I was built afraid
I share the blame
I was born with these inconsistencies
You made me come alive
I can feel You inside
Your love's like a pained sky
Overwhelms me every time
CHORUS
And I'm reaching for You
Arms stretched towards You
All these things I bring
And You pursue me
And I surrender
Take, Lord, what You see
Whatever the cost
I gained everything in loss
In the greatness of Your love
I compels me to give it up
REPEAT CHORUS
In the light of what I see
There is nothing good in me
REPEAT CHORUS
Explanation:
"This is a song about not being complete. Everything in our lives-every circumstance and situation-becomes a stepping stone. The circumstances in our lives are not final results but means to higher purpose. 'Reaching' came from the thought that we are striving for the higher purpose. A.W. Tozer says, 'I can do no more justice to the awesome wonder-filled theme called love than a child can grasp a star. Still by reaching toward the star the child may call attention to it and even indicate the direction one might look to see it. So, as I stretch my heart toward the high, shining love of God, someone who has not before known about it may be encouraged to look up and have hope.' Phillip and I know that we have not come to any conclusions ourselves and we cannot ask people to look to us for answers." -Natalie

Scorns Of Time Lyrics

I am a captain out on a journey
Still have a long way till I ride
I take no prisoners
No one goes with me
I find no shelter from the scorns of time
I felt a shiver
When autumn breaks through
And says goodbye to wide summer skies
I've heard the rain pour
Though it might drown me
But still I walk through the scorns of time
And in my right hand
I hold my sorrow
And with my left hand
I reach for joy
We're all soldiers
Whether we fall or fight
None can run from the scorns of time
Without a dark sky there'll be no sunrise
Without a thorn there is no road
I'll have my triumph, my shelter of victory
When this battle comes to a close
And in my right hand
I hold my sorrows
And with my left hand
I reach for joy
We're all soldiers
Whether we fall or fight
None can run from the scorns of time
Ohm, none can run from the scorns of time

See You Lyrics

Words and music by Shaun Groves
I see America from airplane windows
Center front row
On top of the world
Looking out on this quilt of old scraps
These green squares laid flat
Like flags unfurled
They're stitched together by our
Fences and tree lines
Rivers that unwind
And spell Your Name
There's a trace of Your face in
All that You create
Chorus
I can see You
Looking back at me
Trying to get through
To the heart of me
And I can see You
Running after me
Trying to break through
What's distracting me
And I can see You
I can see You
Looking up from my hotel window
There in the moon's glow
I find Your eyes
Watching over me through
Clouds of silver
Stretched like fingers
Over midnight skies
And I recognize You
Even in disguise
Chorus
If I can get past
All of the deadlines
Demons of daily grind
Then I can, I can, I can see You
Story Behind The Song:
I wrote this after two plane rides. The first was with fellow Rocketown artist Ginny Owens, who, if you don't know, is blind. I was describing the fields below us as looking like an old quilt when I realized just how seldom I'd ever noticed them before. The next week I flew out of Chicago as the sun was coming up and paused for the first time in my hectic week to notice God and wonder if that's why he made long flights and sunrises. I guess if you look at the world long enough it looks back. (Romans 1:20)

Shout Hallelujah Lyrics

Shout Hallelujah
(written by Tony Wilkins)
(recorded by Bishop Clarence McClendon & The Harvest Fire Mega Mass Choir, Alvin Slaughter)
Verse 1:
The victory is ours as we sing unto Jesus,
He rejoices when we give worthy praise.
With a shout and a dance,
because the devil is defeated,
our God is worthy to be praised.

Now Jesus bled and died for our iniquities,
His grace and His mercy paid the price for me.
Oh, how I love Him, how I love Him ,yes, I do,
our God is worthy to be praised.
Chorus:
Shout hallelujah, its the highest praise.

Slowly Lyrics

Maybe it's been to long for me
Maybe I'm too far gone
I'm not looking for sympathy
But I know something's gotta be wrong
Remind me now what it means to kneel
Get me out of the way
I'm learning still that Your love is real
You've proven it's not a charade
I don't know how much I can take
Mighty fences are slipping away
You slowly break me down
You slowly turn me around
I'm learning how to live
I'm learning how to love
Now that You're here slowly showing me how
How do You say the things You say?
Do You really think I can change?
You love me with so much abandon
And You move in me with such grace
I am finally coming awake
Mighty fences are fading away
What I would be if I never let you in
What I would be if I am giving up my skin
What I would be if I let you in
I didn't write this song but it could have been written about my life. Being raised in church and giving my heart to Christ at an early age is one of the biggest blessings in my life. It is also something that can make one so "used to" the things of God that you can take them for granted. So many times I have allowed my heart to become calloused to the moving of God's spirit. Willfully making my own way instead of taking His. I am glad to say that every time I have let this happen I have a God who has broken down the walls and made my heart one of flesh again and not one of stone. I pray that if, as you read this, your heart is stony you will ask God to break up the rocky parts and fall in love with Jesus all over again.

Somehow You Are Lyrics

I look out at the ocean
I don't know where it ends
I look up to the heavens
Where do they begin?
From way down here
My feet stuck on the ground
And the wonders in and around me
Can it be?
You who made the moon
You who made the stars
I cannot express the sum of who You are
You who spoke the words
Living in my heart
I cannot explain it but somehow You are
Somehow You are
Peering out my window, feeling pretty small
A perfect cosmic light show
And I know You made it all
It makes it all the harder to wrap my mind around
How You gave up Heaven to be with me
Can it be?
Nothing high or low, above, below
Not anything
Can take that away, away from me
Take that away from me

Sufficient Lyrics

Hear my heart Lord as I cry out to you
Hear my prayer Lord and carry me thru
In your mercy in the promise you made
Be my strength Lord when my strength fades away
Cos when I am weak your strength is complete
It's perfect
Completely all I need
Sufficient for me
Your grace and peace are perfect
Completely all I need
You're all that I need
In my weakness I'm finding your strength
In my sorrow a gentle embrace
Thru the seasons of laughter or pain
You are listening
When I call out your name
I'll find you when I seek
I'll look for you with all of my heart
And I'll find you when I'm weak
Cos you are strong
Hear my heart Lord as I cry out to you
Hear my prayer Lord and carry my thru
Carry me thru

Summer Of My Dreams Lyrics

In the shade of this old tree, in the summer of my dreams,
By the tall grass, by the wild rose, where the trees dance as the wind blows,
As the days go oh so slowly, as the sun shines oh so holy on the good and gracious green,
In the summer of my dreams.
By the banks of this old stream, in the summer of my dreams,
By the deep pool where the fish wait for the old fool with the wrong bait,
There's a field of purple clover, there's a small cloud passing over, and the rain comes washing clean,
On the summer of my dreams.
See the raindrops, on the grass now, just like diamonds lying there.
By the old road, where I pass now, there's a twilight in the air.
And as the sun sets down before me, I see my true love waiting for me, standing by the back porch screen,
In the summer of my dreams.
In the shade of this old tree, in the summer of my dreams,
By the tall grass, by the wild rose, where the trees dance as the wind blow,
As the days go oh so slowly, as the sun shines oh so holy, on the good and gracious green,
In the summer of my dreams,
In the summer of my dreams

Summertime Lyrics

Words and Music by Phillip LaRue and Natalie LaRue
What have we done?
We have lessened our thoughts on love
Some say, there is as many as three
But I believe that there's one for me
One for me
If God could make the stars in the sky
Then why can't He make a perfect
"you and I"?
And we shouldn't even have to try
Or compromise in our lives
CHORUS
And it will feel like summertime
When I'm by your side, my skies are blue
And I will this every time
Like oceans wide, my love for you
My love for you
I believe in the soulmate kind of dreams
Where even in the trials we'll say it's all worthwhile
And in our lives there's an
Orchestra of things
Both major and minor keys, but
Love will always sing
REPEAT CHORUS
And through time, our hearts
Will melt and mold together
You know, despite what people say
I'll hold to the promise of that day forever.
REPEAT CHORUS
Explanation:
"We were talking with our friend Jude about the idea that if this huge God created all the stars and all these amazing things, why can't He give you the one thing your heart longs for-that perfect person in your life? Everybody has an opinion on the subject of soul mates and is there such a thing as true love. it can be debated for hours, but at the end of the day, you have to believe your own convictions and decide for yourself if you're going to wait for that feeling-this is the one, this is right. It's a fun song but not cheesy lyrically."-Natalie & Phillip

The Countdown Has Begun Lyrics

I leave today
Into the eyes of death I smile
No turning back now
For power and glory and justice for all
Fight for the truth (so vague, so strong)
Bend every rule (so pure, so wrong)
Pray for the soldier, in this cause we stand
Blinded we aim (denying history)
We shall proclaim (our sweet victory)
Every nation bows at our feet
We fight to find a meaning, to see them falling down
Tear down the walls and build them higher and higher
I won't go back
Never again will I betray
My land or my people
Lift my eyes to the horizon
Borders to conquer and banners to burn
Fight for the truth (so vague, so strong)
Bend every rule (so pure, so wrong)
Pray for the soldier, in this cause we stand
Blinded we aim (denying history)
We shall proclaim (our sweet victory)
Every nation bows at our feet
We fight to find a meaning, to see them falling down
Tear down the walls and build them higher and higher
We've fought trough endless battles, but now we're falling down
Tear down our minds and make them sronger and colder
Don't run from the pain
Drowning in a memory of the times we miss the most
One day this will all be gone
Anybody smells my fear, a heart that's turned to ice
Who could tell that this would be the end that's in their lies
Hide...for the countdown has begun...
We fight to find a meaning, to see them falling down
Tear down the walls and build them higher and higher
We've fought trough endless battles, but now we're falling down
Tear down our minds and make them stronger and colder

Bringing hope to every man

The Other Side Lyrics

I've been so long in midnight
Praying for the light of dawn
And hope's been my companion
In the dark to keep me strong
But there's something awesome
Shining out through the ebony
And now my soul can finally see
There is glory in the night
So beautiful and bright
A glimpse of You
Coming from the other side
You are reaching through the stars
And You're speaking to my heart
I know it's You
Calling from the other side
How could I not have realized
You've been here all along
So constant and so faithful
Through the darkness and beyond
It's unthinkable, undreamable
There's peace when I look up
'Cause I see the evidence of love
The other side...tonight
I am dancing through the night
Knowing things will be all right
Because of You
I'll make it to the other side
You are reaching through the stars
And You're speaking to my heart
I know it's You
Calling from the other side
When we first started planning this record the theme was "Joy in the morning Psalm 30:5" We first heard this song and Jody and I volunteered to help write to portray the theme. My favorite line in the song is " Now I'm dancing through the night, knowing things will be alright because of You I'll make it to the other side"

Time Lyrics

Jesus my heart belongs to you
But I feel like I failed to be all that I've wanted to
So here I am
With not much to give to you
I won't waste this time
I'm coming back to you
I won't waste this time
And I'm on my knees
I won't waste this time
I won't - I need
I won't waste this time
Jesus I'm lifeless far from you
Forgive me for waiting
To believe in the grace you've offered me
I'm surrendered
And here I am with not much to give to you
A rush of words too small to thank you
But I've been so consumed by your unending love
How do I even begin to repay
My life is yours

To Be Honest Lyrics

Words and music by Shaun Groves
I'm scared to wander outside major keys
So I sing a song that I wrote just to please
The fools and the fakes, afraid just like me
To be honest
I play my part with a smile painted on
At best I'm a clown, at worst I'm a con
Convincing the crowd and myself nothing's wrong
To be honest
My soul is trembling
Knowing they're listening
But all that I need to be
Is all that you're making me
Chorus
I'm leaving the stage
You can turn my lights down
The curtain is closed
I'm taking my bow
Lord, help me remember
'Cause I forget how
To be honest
I rewrote my story without tragedies
Left out the lines that reveal I am weak
Erased every reason for you to save me
To be honest
My soul is trembling
Knowing they're listening
But all that I need to be
Is all that you're making me
Story Behind The Song:
I'm shocked at how fake Christians are with one another. I'm even more shocked at how fake I am. One Sunday in Bible study, we didn't study the Bible. Instead our teacher just asked us if we're honest with each other. Of course we said no. We then talked about all the reasons why - most of which had something to do with fear. I thought about that topic and his questions for days until I realized why I should be honest: If I don't show my weakness, you'll never see God's strength in me - you'll just see mine.

Tonight Lyrics

Words and Music by Phillip LaRue and Natalie LaRue
It's a beautiful pain
When Your grace shines and touches my face
I know Your love
I've heard it sung a thousand times before
But still I cry for more
Surrender to my Lord
CHORUS
And tonight and the rest of my life
I want to live for You
Still I cry for You
Still I cry out for You
I stay completely quiet
I'm determined to rest in Your strength
But still I cry for more
Surrender to my Lord
REPEAT CHORUS
Still I cry out for You
It's a beautiful pain
When Your grace shines and
Touches my face.
Explanation:
"It's a song of surrender sung out of desperation. I have no choice but to surrender to God because everything else in life doesn't matter so much."-Natalie
"This song is a prayer, a hope and a cry-I know I need Your help. Even though I've heard what God can do for me and I know how He can make me feel, even though I have read and learned His words, there's still a longing deep in me. The music goes perfect with the song: you can feel the plea in the music."-Phillip

Trinity Lyrics

Words and Music by
Phillip LaRue and Natalie LaRue
Oh Lovely Divine
I cannot describe You, I will not deny You
Three Beauties entwined
I will not disguise You, I cannot divide You
CHORUS
And Trinity, You gave to me
All that love could ever be
And I intend to show
That who You are brings life to me
My soul You saved in unity
That's all I need to know
Oh Holy Divine
I sing of Your wonders and what
I've discovered
The mystery I find
There's none that compares to, nor will I dare to
REPEAT CHORUS
It's all I need to know
Now faith, faith and trust, is how
I can hope for
What I do not see
So let, let reason kneel, kneel in surrender
In surrender, in surrender (to my Lord)
And Trinity, you gave to me
REPEAT CHORUS
Three Beauties entwined
I will not disguise You, I cannot
Divide You.
Explanation:
"Phillip and I have been inspired by A.W. Tozer's The Kingdom of the Holy, St. Augustine's prayers and old hymns-songs that express a strong theological concept. And this is our attempt to sing conceptually about the Trinity, about the wonder and the mystery of something that we don't understand. Through this song we learn how the very thing we don't understand is the very thing that saves us."-Natalie & Phillip

Turn Lyrics

To everything - turn, turn, turn
There is a season - turn, turn, turn
And a time to every purpose under heaven
A time to be born, a time to die
A time to plant, a time to reap
A time to kill, a time to heal
A time to laugh, a time to weep
A time to build up, a time to break down
A time to dance, a time to mourn
A time to cast away stones
A time to gather stones together
A time of love, a time of hate
A time of war, a time of peace
A time you may embrace
A time to refrain from embracing
A time to gain, a time to lose
A time to rend, a time to sew
A time to love, a time to hate
A time of peace, I swear it's not too late!

Twilight Lyrics

Words and music by Shaun Groves
Like the sky before the dawn
While the night is holding on
Sun and moon together in the gray
So my soul is shared by two
The worst of me, the best of you
Saint and sinner mingle in my veins
And I pray you'll end this twilight
Twilight, twilight
I'm torn inside my soul tonight
The dawning day, the dying night
Oh rid my soul of twilight
Oh rid my soul of twilight
Good I love but evil's done
Good intentions come undone
Good to know I know the One
Who saves me from myself and
Chorus
Oh Lord, paint my heart a solid hue
The shade of you
Oh Lord, break this dreadful in between
Inside of me
Oh let it be, morning
Chorus
I know the sun is coming up
Oh, the sun is coming up
Yes, the sun is coming up
In me, in me
Story Behind The Song:
It's almost impossible, and often seems silly, to try cramming good theology into a simple three-minute pop song. Sometimes I give up trying. That was the case when I read Romans 7 & 8, in which Paul confesses that he's torn between what he should do and what he shouldn't. He admits that he often does what he shouldn't and doesn't do what he should. One evening when my two year-old daughter looked at the sky and told me the sun and moon were both "on," it dawned on me how to condense two chapters of Scripture into a tiny pop song - and still make sense... I hope. (Romans 7&8)

Unite Lyrics

Words and Music by Phillip LaRue and Natalie LaRue
I feel the tension in our lives
We're waiting for the Son to rise
I feel the closing of this time
God is calling for His bride
And she will unite in our lives
As we fall in love with Christ
Yes we will unite in this time
If we're bold enough to say
CHORUS
Now we stand together
Singing praises of surrender
Lord, heal our hearts and make us one
We are the ones who will proclaim
The power of God upon this age
And we will unite in our lives
As we fall in love with Christ
Yes, we will unite in this time
If we're bold enough to say
REPEAT CHORUS
Heal our hearts and make us one
Heal our hearts and make us one
Make us one
Make us one
Explanation:
"Just as Paul wrote to the Corinthians, stop your fighting and focus on what matters, so this song sums up our heart for the Church. What's the foundation that makes us believer's in Christ? Because I feel like we're joints everywhere. Ultimately what matters is that we believe in God and believe that Jesus is the only way to heaven. How are we supposed to minister to the world and intrigue the outside with the perspective of what is means to be a Christian when we are fighting among ourselves? We need to love each other and not contradict each other. We need to focus on what matters as the Church so we become more united and can minister to the outside world."-Phillip "There is a desire in Phillip and I to see Christ's Body, unite together. The only ways that's going to happen is when we meet each other on the basis that we are all saved by Jesus. We all are in pursuit of Him." -Natalie

We Will Stand Lyrics

Sometimes it's hard for me to understand
Why we pull away from each other so easily
Even though we're all walking the same road
Yet we build dividing walls between
Our brothers and ourselves
But I, I don't care what label you may wear
If you believe in Jesus you belong with me
The bond we share is all I care to see
And we can change this world forever
If you will join with me
Join and sing, sing
You're my brother, you're my sister
So take me by the hand
Together we will work until He comes
There's no foe that can defeat us
When we're walking side by side
As long as there is love
We will stand
The day will come when we will be as one
And with a mighty voice together
We will proclaim that Jesus
Jesus is King
And it will echo through the earth
It will shake the nations
And the world will see
See that
The time is here, the time is now
To take a stand, to make a vow
I won't let go, you're not alone
Now and forever we'll sing together
This song was first done over twenty years ago and the message is just as true today as it was then. If we ever needed one another, the time is now. We will accomplish much more for the kingdom of God when we join hands and put our differences aside. Thanks to Russ and Tori Taff for sharing this wonderful anthem with us. We hope it calls all of us to action.

What Have I Done Lyrics

What have I done Lord Jesus to deserve this endless love
What have I done Lord Jesus to be worthy of your grace
What have I done Lord Jesus to standing here with you
What have I done Lord Jesus to be worthy of you
For I am nothing yet love me
I am no one yet you care
You thought me when you died
What have I done to deserve this love
And I lay down my will
To do yours until
My life I life I give hence forth to live for you alone
You made me worthy of you

When It's Over Lyrics

It's finally calming down
I've found the motion of life that spins around
Grows dim as I enter in
A trail of tears sing your embrace
The scars of death and life we face
But I know I'll be with you soon
When it's over
When it's over
I'll finally fall down at your feet
And feel your open arms take hold of me
When it's over
When it's over
I'll finally touch your wounded hands
And see the beauty of what you have planned
Revealing grace's final call
I can't comprehend at all
My hope will be completed
Seeing you with eyes unveiled
Knowing without you I'd have failed
I'll wait - come soon - I'm waiting
My anticipation turns into desperation
When I think of when I will be with you my Jesus

When Joy And Sorrow Meet Lyrics

There's a place of quiet stillness 'tween the light and shadows reach
Where the hurting and the hopeless seek everlasting peace
Words of men and songs of angels whisper comfort bittersweet
Mending grief and life eternal where joy and sorrow meet
There is a place where hope remains
In crowns of thorns and crimson stains
And tears that fall on Jesus' feet
Where joy and sorrow meet
There's a place the lost surrender and the weary will retreat
Full of grace and mercy tender in times of unbelief
For wounded there is healing, strength is given to the weak
Broken hearts find love redeeming where joy and sorrow meet
There's a place of thirst and hunger where the roots of faith grow deep
And there is rain and rolling thunder when the road is rough and steep
There is hope in desperation there is victory in defeat
At the cross of restoration where joy and sorrow meet

I love this song. For me it is a modern day hymn reminding us of the hope we all have in the cross of Christ. That place where we learn to surrender, learn to believe, find rest, strength, restoration, learn to let go, cry our hearts out, wrapping up all our emotions, both good and bad, and meet with our Savior, Jesus.

When The Time Comes Lyrics

For every soul there is a midnight
When it's silent in the room but loud inside
You lie awake what seems like forever
And you wrestle with the big stuff that can not be denied
All of life
Has led you to this moment
When the time comes
And the games are finally over
There's no more pretending
All charades are done
And the time comes
When the soul is finally ready
You know the truth and
This time you don't run
God is waiting there, you'll find
When the time comes
For every soul there is a dawning
When we see there's more to life than we believed
Faith is that one road that's left to travel
But it means we have to start to trust what we can't see
Then at last
We chose to take that first step
He'll rush
He'll reach
He'll run
He'll do
Anything to get to you
This is a beautiful song that I'm privileged to sing lead on. It's about finally coming to a place of readiness to receive from God.....giving up control. I think it's easy to fool ourselves sometime and think we've completely given everything over the Christ, when actually, we are still holding on to everything we have, trying to do things our own way. God knows our hearts and just how much we've given over to Him. The songs says "there's no more pretending, all charades are done." We don't have to play games with God. He knows it all anyway.

Where Would I Be Lyrics

Words by Darlene Zschech
Music by Darlene Zschech & David Holmes
You knew me
Even as a child I heard
You call me closer
Clearly like a song I've always known
You would play for me
Like the breaking of the dawn
Everyday I long for more of you
Where would I be without your love
Where would I be without your hand on my life
Lifted through the valleys
Through the pain I know you're with me carried
Like I'm dancing in the rain
You cover me
Then you catch me when I fall
As we walk this gift of life
I need you
Forever I will follow you
I will live for you
Forever I will worship you
I will follow you
Forever I will live for you
I will worship you forever
Will you dance with me again
For I can only live this life with you
Where would I be without your grace
Where would I be without your refuge over me

Without You Lyrics

Words and music by Shaun Groves
There's a couple laughing
At the table next to mine
The waiter keeps on asking me if I'm alright
I hate to bore him with the truth
So I'll just lie and pretend I'm fine
Without you
Outside the city's slowing down
It's half past 10
I'm staring at the door
And wishing you'd walk in
But wishing isn't working now
So I'll sleep instead
In a hotel bed without you
And I'd rather be a pauper than a prince
Living without you, without you
And I'd rather be a failure than famous
Living without you, without you
Seven hundred miles away
Or just one flight
That's all that stands between
My heart and home tonight
And I'd walk every mile
To feel your hand in mine
It's just no life without you
Chorus
You know I don't know who I am
Without you
I'm only half a man
Story Behind The Song:
This song was written the week before my first record came out. I was in Chicago eating alone, dreading sleeping alone, knowing it wouldn't be the last time if I wanted a life of music. So I wrote this song to my wife, Becky, as a promise that I would never get used to the separation, and I would always choose her over work or anything else. I choose her over all because God made us one. And when I'm away from her I feel like half a man - because I am. (Mark 10:8)

And your daytime has turned to night
You may be unaware, but theres someone who cares
And Hes leading you to the light

Youre not alone
Never alone

There are times when you feel that youre all by yourself
Like an island out on the sea
But thats the enemys way of making you doubt
Cause God promised Hed never leave

Your Way Lyrics

I'm trying to believe that you're holding me
When the feeling, the feeling is gone
I want to see your right when I'm wrong
I just want to be what you want for me this time
I'll follow you
Will you guide me
Take me where I'm never lonely
I'll follow you
Will you guide me
I want to live my life your way
Your way
I'm trying to receive what you've offered me
When the leading, the leading is gone
I want to see your light tear thru the blanket of night
I just want to be what you want for me all the time
Trust in you my father
You're the one I see
You're my air and water
You're everything I need
And I hear you inside of me.
