A Rose Is A Rose Lyrics




They say you're a fool they feel you resisting
They tell you you'll never go very far
But they'll be the same ones that stand in the distance
And fall in the shadow of your shining star.
Just keep on the same road and keep on your toes
Just keep your heart steady as she goes
And let them call you what they will
It don't matter a rose by any name is still a rose.
The kindess of strangers it seems like a fable
But they get to seek what I see
That you can make it if you are able
To believe in yourself the way I do.
Just keep on the same road and keep on your toes
Just keep your heart steady as she goes
And let them call you what they will
It don't matter a rose by any name is still a rose.
'Cause a deal is a deal in the heart of the dream
And a spade is a spade if you know what I mean
A rose is a rose is a rose.
Deal with the scoffers is part of the bargain
They heckle from backrows and they bark at the moon
The flowers are fading in times bitter garden
But yours is only beginning to bloom.
Just keep on the same road and keep on your toes
Just keep your heart steady as she goes
And let them call you what they will
And just remember a rose by any name is still a rose.
A rose by any name is still a rose...

A Strange Way To Save The World Lyrics




A Strange Way To Save The World
by Fred Hammond
Written by Dave Clark, Mark Harris and Don Koch
Album: Christmas... Just Remember
Verse I
I'm sure he must have been surprised
At where this road had taken him
Cause never in a million lives
Would he have dreamed of Bethlehem
Channel
And standing at the manger
He saw with his own eyes
The message from the angel
Come to life, and Joseph said
Chorus
Why me, I'm just a simple man of trade
Why Him, with all the rulers of the world
Why here, inside this stable filled with hay
Why her, she's just an ordinary girl
Now I'm not one to second guess
What angels have to say
But, this is such a strange way to save the world
Verse II
To think of how it could have been
If Jesus had come as He deserved
There would have been no Bethlehem
No lowly shepherds at His birth
Channel
But, Joseph knew the reason
Love had to reach so far
And as he held the Savior in his arms
He must have thought
(Repeat Chorus)
Vamp
(Now I'm not one)
Now I'm not one to second guess
What angels have to say
But, this is such a strange way
(Strange way)
A Strange way (strange way)
This is such a strange way
(Strange way)
To save the world
This is such a strange way
This is such a strange way
I don't claim to really know
Why You gave this King
But I really thank You, thank You
(Thank You for Your Song)
Thank You, thank You
(On this Christmas day)
Thank You, thank You
(We praise and glorify Your name on this day)

Adventure With You Lyrics




Ecclesiastics 4:9-12;5:4-6; Malachi 2:14-16; Matthew 19:1-11
Thanks, Mom & Dad and Mom-and-Dad-in-law for staying married all this time. Not that you'd think otherwise or even have the desire or option. But in today's day and age, I appreciate the example you are to Rory and I to stick together through thick and thin. Thanks, Rory, for the adventure! I Love You!
A million trips to find a place where oil and water finally agree
Miles and miles we'll go to find a road that leads us where we two can meet
We said our vows we had it all under control
But maybe now I'm wondering if we understand at all
I'm not asking for your way or mine
But I think we can start over and make it ours this time
The two of us together
Make it better
No matter what we're going through
I don't really know
Just where we'll go
But I'm loving this adventure with you
It's give and take. You give. I take, then wonder how we ended up this way
We said "we do," but really don't. We contradict the things we meant to say
And I thought I had it all under control
And maybe one day I will understand it all
I'm here to stay no matter how hard the fight
'Cause I know I'm better with you here, close by my side

Alive Lyrics




Everyday is a new day
I'm thankful for every breath I take
I won't take it for granted
So I learn from my mistakes
It's beyond my control, sometimes it's best to let go
Whatever happens in this lifetime
So I trust in love
You have given me peace of mind
(Chorus:)
I feel so alive for the very first time
I can't deny you
I feel so alive
I feel so alive for the very first time
And I think I can fly
Sunshine upon my face
A new song for me to sing
Tell the world how I feel inside
Even though it might cost me everything
Now that I know this, so beyond, I can't hold this
I can never turn my back away
Now that I've seen you
I can never look away
(Chorus)
Now that I know you (I could never turn my back away)
Now that I see you (I could never look away)
Now that I know you (I could never turn my back away)
Now that I see you (I believe no matter what they say)
(Chorus 2x)

All For Love Lyrics





All For Love
Artist: Hillsong United
Album: Look To You
All for love a Father gave
For only love could make a way
All for love heavens cried
For love was crucfied
Oh how many times have I broken Your heart
But still You forgive
If only I ask
And how many times have You heard me pray
Drawn near to me
Everything I need is You
My beginning, my forever
Everything I need is You
Let me sing all for love
I will join the angel song
Ever holy is the Lord
King of Glory
King of all
All for a love a Saviour prayed
Abba Father have Your way
Though they know not what they do
Let the Cross draw man to You

Back to "I Shall Live" Album



All I Need Is You Lyrics




All I Need Is You
Artist: Hillsong United
Album: Look To You
Left my fear by the side of the road
Hear You speak
Won't let go
Fall to my knees as I lift my hands to pray
Got every reason to be here again
Father's love that draws me in
And all my eyes wanna see is a glimpse of You
All I need is You
All I need is You Lord
Is you Lord
One more day and it's not the same
Your spirit calls my heart to sing
Drawn to the voice of my Saviour once again
Where would my soul be without Your Son
Gave His life to save the earth
Rest in the thought that You're watching over me
All I need is You
All I need is You Lord
Is You Lord
You hold the universe
You hold everyone on earth
You hold the universe
You hold
You hold

All Year Long Lyrics




He braced the old ladder with all of His might
And shouted, dad have no fear
As I stretched high to store the stockings and trim
In the attic for another year
We were busily packing our Christmas away
While singing a carol we knew
When I heard my son in innocence inquire
Do we store away Jesus too
Chorus
All year long
We must worship day by day
All year long
Tis the season to obey
May the Christmas tree lights
And the sleigh rides at night
Remind us all to stay in God's presence
All year long
I smiled at my boy as again I explain
God's longing to reconcile
How He gave to the world the gift of new life
When His yearning became Mary's child
Though surrounded by all of man's goods we embrace
The hope of that Bethlehem night
We will never store this blessed gift away
With the tinsel and colored lights
Repeat Chorus

Back to "I Shall Live" Album



Alle Lyrics




May the path that I walk Be the path of righteousness
May the words from my mouth Give you praise
May my heart be Your home And a place of holiness
I worship You in love
I lift You, lift You up
Chorus:
Alle, Alleluia to the Father to the Lord
Alle Alleluia to the Savior forevermore

Alone in December Lyrics




You always amazed me
But that's the past
You always amazed me
But that's the past
I kept silent and it rained for days
My insides were drenched
But I guess that's the part of growing up
I never wanted to learn (wanted to learn)
And I grew into the man
That you never knew
But I wouldn't be this way
If it wasn't for you
100 thank you's
If this is love
Fairy tales never came true
Judies are black and in full bloom
And I died in the womb
Take it back, all that's gone
It's all still there like you left it
December stayed the same
Nothing ever changed but you(nothing ever changed but you)
Every dream covered in dents
Love can't fly tonight
Couples will rest, I'll be sleepless
So cry yourself to sleep
This isn't about broken hearts
This is about me
Bending again for nothing (nothing)
I'd run to you but pain awaits
I'm coming home
But I'll be late
No deeper than imagination can be
Sight with nothing to see
Whats faith if I cant belive
It's everything
A cure but I make it a disease
God take me because I hate me

Back to "I Shall Live" Album



Alone Together Lyrics




Life seems a little warmer with you standing next to me
And if you were a little taller, or I was a little smaller
You'd block the wind entirely
I don't want you to make this into something it is not
But
I am alone, you are alone
We are alone
Let's be alone together
Life's just a bit more funny when I'm poking fun at you
Cause you trip when you are running
And if my jokes were truly funny
Then you might share in the laughter too
It changes everything to share this with you

Amazing Love Lyrics




Martha Munizzi - Amazing Love
Amazing love
How can it be?
That my God would die for me----
Amazing love
Oh what sacrfice
The son of God
Given for me
My debt He paid
And my death He died
That I might live
That I might live
Amazing love
Oh what sacrfice
The son of God
Given for me
My debt He paid
And my death He died
That I might live
That I might live

American Idle Lyrics




I wanna be on my T.V.
I wanna wish that I was me
If I could just be 23 forever
I'd be the heartthrob of the tweens
Vegas lives inside my veins
Dating Britney is my dream
(so watch yourself)
American idle
Cash and style
Tell me what I'm worshipping
American idle
We need revival
Bigger than the next big thing, that's right
We need to see the light
Disney's renting out my head
Hefner redesigned my bed
My conscience chimes in like a prize announcer
To tell me good times are ahead
I snuggle with my credit cards
I pray "God bless the mega-stars!"
(go watch yourself)
Hey (Hey) Ho (Ho)
Throw your mojo out the window
Hey (Hey) Ho (Ho)
Lose the world but baby gain your soul

Amplified Lyrics




Got a question for the next generation
Would you stand to your feet
And fall in line for your interrogation
Tell us what you believe?
Alright, alright, so who wants the mic?
Tonight I might call you to testify
Hey, kids get amplified
Cos' you just can't hide when it burns inside, I say
Hey , kids get amplified tonight
There's a fire that we call redemption
When it lights up your soul
It drops a bomb on your false pretensions
You want the whole world to know
Alright, alright, so who wants the mic?
Tonight I might call you to testify
Hey, kids get amplified
If it's worth your love then it's worth your life, I say
Hey, kids get amplified tonight
It's not about our glory
It's the story that rocks the whole world
Alright, alright, I'll give you the mic
Tonight, tonight, I want you to testify

Angel Below Lyrics




You took me over the edge
And left me there to fall by myself
The word love meant nothing to you
I was taken in with your lies
And you knew I was too weak to leave
But you were wrong
You mean nothing to me now
Every time you think of me
I hope your heart dies
I have found my true love
And you now burn beneath my feet
You'll pay for everything you've done
If you could die
I'd be the one with the gun
From this day on
I'll write the songs you hate
And pray the prayers that drive you away
It's time to let the world know how
You tried to ruin my life
Up burn my thoughts of him
The virus leaves me

Another 10 Miles Lyrics




I don't see what you see in me
I'm just flesh and bone
Many hours at the carousel,
Postcards from far from home
Sometimes I feel as useless as my empty words, old
President's dogs, clean paws, no dirt
What do these words mean?
Sometimes I just don't know.
Sometimes I just can't see
Where it is I go- I waste
My whole day thinking over
Things I've said and avoiding myself
Like the plague in my head
I know that you see me and I know
You're about me, that's why You
Let me roam
Another 10 miles, another 10 miles, another 10 miles
Where does this all lead, and
Why must I follow it?
Nothing is black and white,
(even me, I must admit).
I jot down the facts and work
On consistency, but open up the
Closet door; it's George, and
The cat, and me.
My shifting eyes like sands
Cannot focus on the void,
Concentration still,
"Get thee behind me, Freud."
I'm grasping at straws and
The bale is almost gone;
The fire's grown much too dim,
Nights grow much too long-
I am holding things Yours, not mine
While I should cling to You like a
Cow beneath the light of a highway sign.

Anything Right Lyrics




So much to say so little time for me to explain the way I feel
You only see things the way you want to see them
It makes sense to you all these things you do
You got it all figured out while everyone is confused
How do you do it?
In your mind I'm just blind
You're right all of the time
If I think for myself, I guess I'm way out of line
I'm not who you are
I'm so sorry
(Chorus:)
I can't do anything right
You don't know me, stay out of my life
Kick me while I'm down, I want you to
I can't be like you
Don't want to be like you
No matter what I do it's never good enough
I give all that is me; still it's never enough
So, why try? I give up.
What does it feel like to be in you shoes
And walk over everyone like you do?
Tear me down again, I want you to.
You're lovely, so beautiful
You're perfect in every way.
Your interior rusted. I'm so disgusted
Can't trust it. You're busted.

Anything To You Lyrics




The sun comes up the way it always does
It just comes up
And I don't owe anything to you
So I don't want anything from you
My heart just hurts the way it always hurts
If I could see you then I might believe you
And if I believed you
Then I'd give anything to you
I'd give everything to you

April Showers Lyrics




Like April showers on the slick cement
When I consider how our light is spent
Keeping the candles inside the cathedral
Hold on tight, Don't go into the night
So full of evil
Rain rain don't go away
We need you this dry and dusty day
Rain rain don't go away
Though some may say please go away
Like the April Showers on the slick cement
And the roads once straight have now become so bent
Weaving through the trees of vain security
Rounding round the hard rocks of hard morality
And the sacred cows
Feed on the green
While the least of these
Are dying on the streets
And they're crying...

Arise My Love Lyrics




Not a word was heard
At the tomb that day.
Just shuffling of soldiers feet
As they guarded the grave.
One day, two days,
Three days had past.
Could it be that Jesus
Breathed His last?
Could it be that His Father
Had forsaken him?
Turned his back on his son
Dispising our sin.
All hell seemed to whisper
"Just forget Him, He's dead."
Then the Father looked down
To his son and he said..
Arise, My love.
Arise, My love.
The grave no longer
Has a hold on you
No more death's sting
No more suffering
Arise...Arise...my love.
The Earth trembled
And the tomb began to shake,
And like lightening
From Heaven the stone was rolled away.
And as dead man
The guards they all stood there in fright
As the power of love
Displayed its might
Then suddenly a melody
Filled the air
Riding wings of wind,
It was everywhere
The words all creation
Had been longing to hear
The sweet sound of victory,
So loud and clear.
Arise, my love.
Arise, my love.
The grave no longer has a hold on you.
No more death's sting
No more suffering
Arise...arise....
Sin, where are your shackles?
Death, where is your sting?
Hell; has been defeated.
The grave could not hold the king.
Arise, My love.
Arise, My love.
The grave no longer
Has a hold on you
No more death's sting
No more suffering
Arise....Arise....Arise

Arise, My Love Lyrics




Not a word was heard
At the tomb that day.
Just shuffling of soldiers feet
As they guarded the grave.
One day, two days,
Three days had past.
Could it be that Jesus
Breathed His last?
Could it be that His Father
Had forsaken him?
Turned his back on his son
Dispising our sin.
All hell seemed to whisper
"Just forget Him, He's dead."
Then the Father looked down
To his son and he said..
Arise, My love.
Arise, My love.
The grave no longer
Has a hold on you
No more death's sting
No more suffering
Arise...Arise...my love.
The Earth trembled
And the tomb began to shake,
And like lightening
From Heaven the stone was rolled away.
And as dead man
The guards they all stood there in fright
As the power of love
Displayed its might
Then suddenly a melody
Filled the air
Riding wings of wind,
It was everywhere
The words all creation
Had been longing to hear
The sweet sound of victory,
So loud and clear.
Arise, my love.
Arise, my love.
The grave no longer has a hold on you.
No more death's sting
No more suffering
Arise...arise....
Sin, where are your shackles?
Death, where is your sting?
Hell; has been defeated.
The grave could not hold the king.
Arise, My love.
Arise, My love.
The grave no longer
Has a hold on you
No more death's sting
No more suffering
Arise....Arise....Arise

As Your Voice Fades Lyrics




Somebody please tell me
What am I suppose to do
You died and I'm here
Thinking that I hear your voice,
But it's somebody else
It's always somebody else
Why did you die?
Don't leave me please
I beg you God tonight bring me peace
I'll never sleep without the dreams of you alive here with me
The brightness left your eyes
As I held your face
Don't tell me it's the right time
And your last words will sustain me
Until my end...until I see you again
While words (your life) evade me (but a moment)
I'll wait to (i'll cling to) remember you (forever)
And what you had (your words) meant to me (on my blood)
Could never be forgotten
The chains (why) of death (don't take)
Are falling (away), but my heart still bleeds
It longs for (why) the day (did you die)
When we will be as one

Asthma Lyrics




Breathe!
Suffocation within
Because of what your sayin'
To understand!
Is to begin again
Yet to Begin!
Is to live again
I tried living my life through your eyes
Smother me with your ways, to death, no breath.
Your choking what little faith I have left.
In time I find the truth lies, Inside the truth lies, Inside
Breathe!
Suffocation within
Because of what your sayin'
To understand!
Is to begin again
Yet to Begin!
Is to live again
I would die, to breathe again
I would die, to breathe again
I would die, to breathe again
I would die, to breathe again
Breathe!
Suffocation
I want to Breathe!
Suffocation
I understand
I would die, to breathe again
I would die, to breathe again

Be Holy Lyrics




(With Jeromy Deibler of FFH)
2 Peter 1:13-16; 3:10-14, Matthew 11:28-30, Romans 5:8
Jeromy Deibler, Jeni Varnadeau
How do I say thanks
For what you did that day
When my sin on the cross
Was taken away
How do I say thanks
For what you did for me
When all of my guilt
Was nailed to a tree
What can I do to ever repay
The gift you gave that day?
You say be holy
You say be righteous
You say be humble
And when it seems impossible
You say come unto me
My yoke is easy
I died to save you
And I want to show you
I did it because I love you
And I'd do it all again if I had to
How do I say thanks
For loving me this way
For the joy in my soul
And grace when I pray
How do I say thanks
For meeting my needs
For giving me life
With Your hope and peace
What could I do to show you how much
I appreciate your love?
You say you'll return someday soon
And I know what you promise is true
But in the meantime, in the meantime, in the meantime

Beachy Head Lyrics




There is a high cliff on the South Coast of England where, each year, people have ended their lives by driving over the edge.
Here at my feet
The metal remains
Of hopes that died in the air
Here at my feet
Salt water washes over despair
Was it for fear of the future
Was it for guilt of the past
And where are the souls
Oh the sea doesn't know
And where are the souls
Oh the rocks cannot say
And where are the souls
God only knows, how you're feeling today
Here in my head
I see an eagle that flies into the sun
Here in my head I say a prayer
That You'd save the next one
Is there no-one to watch over this place
To pray this evil away
Looking up at cliffs so white
Shadows in this evening light
Looking up at sky so blue
I can only think of You
Of You

Beautiful Once Lyrics




What would it be like
If your heart found out where your body's been, babe?
If it knew the compromise
Would it know that's what it takes to make it?
"Who cares, your only beautiful once in a lifetime
And baby now is your time to be beautiful"
What would it be like to take the moments back
Make this lifetime seem so long?
To change the face of time
The way you burned his pictures and started over?
He knows you without your clothes on
I've known you since you were born
He loves you for what you've given him
I love you no matter what

Believer Lyrics




I dream of tongues of fire
Resting on Your people,
I dream of all the miracles to come.
I hope to see the coming
Healing of the nations,
I long to see the prodigals return.
So many hopes and longings in you
When will all the dreams come true?
[CHORUS]
I'm a believer in your kindom,
I am a seeker of the new things,
I am a dreamer of some old dreams,
Let them now come
(will you now come?)
I hope to see you come down,
Rend the mighty heavens,
And let Your glory cover all the earth;
To see Your sons and daughters
Come to know and love You,
And find a purer passion in the church.
These are the things my heart will pursue;
When will all the dreams come true?
May Your church now reach out,
Sowing truth and justice,
Learning to love the poor and help the weak.
When your kindom's coming
It will touch the broken,
Place the lonley ina family.
So many hopes and longings in You;
When will all the dreams come true?

Best I Can Lyrics




I sometimes hide behind my words
Sometimes I'm round the corner from these songs
But words are only words
Like days are only days
And I'm nothing for just singing along
The air is hot in Florida
The rain is cold in Maine
The thaw is flooding Washington
And this all feels the same
But You've brought me to this place where there's nothing else but faith
And this is what I have been given and I will make the best I can
There's a joy we find in living and a love that's in Your hand
Cason's always talking about the sky that covers Kansas
And I wish I could be under it today
I'm tired of all the spinning lies
Tired of all this killing time
Tired of always getting in the way
I wish I could conjure up a love song
Wish I could pray the way my friends do back home
Is there a part of You that I still don't believe
-Cause this is not what I thought I had been praying for
But this is what I have been given and I will make the best I can
There's a joy we find in living and a love that's in Your hand
Someday some girl will find my words beautiful
Someday some son will call me dad
Someday I won't wake to find myself lying in another cold and lonely hotel bed
Someday I'll trade in this guitar for a city of golden praise
Someday I won't be here any longer
Someday but this is what I have been given
And I will make the best I can
There's a joy we find in living
And a love that's in Your hand

Best of Me Lyrics




In my mind you never left
Falling wasn't true
I had faith you flew past the sky
Straight through the night
And the sun reflects the night
Carrying the very same thing
In your heart that saved me
But maybe you've stopped listening
Falling on my selfish ways
It takes faith to see
So close your eyes and search
Deeper than just memories
I never stopped believing in you and me
Your leaving never changed things
I've been here for too long
To just walk away

Better Than This Lyrics




Help me could something so right
Be so tainted a breif intermission
Between feeling and reason
I promise beneath the shrink wrap
And the price tag there's something
Worth your while at least there used to be
CHORUS(*):
Believe in me believe in love
Believe in anything that's better than this
CHORUS:
I-e-I-e want You
But I just can't ask You
Cause I don't even know You now
(want to know You)
Caught in this tailspin
And I'm blinded by my sin
And I still don't know You now
(want to know You)
I'm writing a book but it's got no pages
Cause You were all I had to say
And I guess I have walked away from You
I'm too slow, there's God on the phone
Well leave a message and I'll get back to You soon
CHORUS(*):
Don't believe in me please believe in love
Believe in God it's better than this
CHORUS
CHORUS:
Hhh--I-e-I-e want Yoooouuuu
Hhh--I-e-I-e need this

And I am praying for it
I still, I don't know You

Nnnnnnooooowwwwwww

Bloodless Lyrics




Take me (far from all that's wrong)
Let these (fears collapse inside)
Take me (back to when I)
Believed
And as a little boy they tried to hide his eyes
With reeds and rituals
The paper and the knife
But fire will always burn through skin and forgery
And answer when you won't
The bloodless hands of fear
He didn't know he was hungry
Someone had a knife and took away my eyes
The last time is right know
This choice will take or make everything
Your face is fading out
Wash those days from your eyes
And let them fall away
Drown the fear that own
He felt the wake of torrid days
Ushered through by warm mistakes
Suddenly his broken feet
Took their rest on bended knee
The last time is right know
This choice will take or make everything
Your face is fading out
I won't stand here
This dance won't stop the music
Your promise will help me lead untill the end
What words have you to say (if this is the last time I won't forget you)
Before we spill (exhale the last breath, tear down the statues)
This blood (this scar will remain here to mark where we severed)
This time you will be afraid (my life from your hands)
You have lost me
Your plan failed (your hands from my heart)
This is the last time

Boom Lyrics




I never knew that a kid like me
Could take his mic around the world and flash the big S.D.
And rock the masses, from Madrid to Calabassas
Tijuana, Mexico, bootleg demos in Tokyo
They know me though, 'cause I be puttin' in work
Commit my life to rebirth, well respected, 'cause that's my word
I'm sure you heard, about a new sound going around
She might have left my hood, but she was born in my town
We rep. the South, so what you talking about
I'm not running off my mouth, I know this without a doubt
'Cause if you know these streets, then these streets know you
When it's time to handle business, then you know what to do
Me and my crew, we stay true, old skool or new
Many were called, but the chosen are few
We rise to the top, what you want? Just in case you forgot
Rush the stage, grab my mic, show me what you got
You didn't know, thought we was new on the scene
Well, it's alright! It's alright!
I know you know, I see you smiling at me
Well, it's alright! It's alright!
(Chorus:)
Boom! Here comes the Boom!
Ready or not, here comes the boys from the South
Boom! Here comes the Boom!
How you like me now?
Is that all you got?
I'll take your best shot.

Bullet The Blue Sky Lyrics




In the howling wind, comes a stinging rain
You see it driving the nails into the souls on the tree of pain
From these fireflies, a red, orange glow
You see the face of fear running scared in the valley below
Bullet the blue sky
Bullet the blue sky
Bullet the blue sky
Bullet the blue sky
In the locust wind comes a rattle and hum
Where Jacob wrestled the angel and the angel was overcome
You plant this demon seed, you raise a flower of fire
You see them burning crosses, you see the flames higher and higher
Bullet the blue sky
Bullet the blue sky
Bullet the blue sky
Bullet the blue sky
Suit and tie comes up to me
His face red like a rose on a thorn bush
With all the colors of a royal flush
And he's peeling off those dollar bills, slapping them down
One hundred, two hundred
And I can see those fighter planes, I can see those fighter planes
Across the mud huts the children sleep
Through the alleys of a quiet city streets
You take the staircase to the first floor
Turn the key and slowly unlock the door
A man breathes into a saxophone
Through the walls you hear the city groan
Outside it's America, outside it's America
Bullet the blue sky
Bullet the blue sky
Bullet the blue sky
Bullet the blue sky

Burning Like Fire Lyrics




There is a path to follow
There is a dream to hold
And there are words of wisdom
For me in this all
I need the truth to guide me
I need a light to fall on me
From Heaven
Burning like fire
Falling like rain
I need to hear your voice again
I am only human, but I have the desire
For Your divine annointing
To start a holy fire
I need the Word to keep me
I need Your love to fall on me
From Heaven
Oh in times of trouble
You will cover me
Oh in times of darkness
You will help me see You

By All Accounts (Today Was A Disaster) Lyrics




Wasted, paralyzed
Beneath ten thousand layers of disguise
Built to save
What's left that has already worn away
Inside the vacant made-up plastic life
Only your heart survived
For one last cry
How long
Must I always remember all that I won't forget
Until it's my day to die
These broken animals
Useless as they are
Gravity gets to me
Holds me here without release
Now's the time to cut the line
Cross my heart
I realize nights are long when hope is gone
God help me make it home (this time)

Callin' You Lyrics




(Chuck Girard)
Don't you worry, don't you cry and don't you be upset
Minimize regret, 'cause there's time to be changin'
Don't you worry, don't you waste the time on doubts and fears
That time is drawing near and there's time to be changin'
Callin' you, callin' you closer and closer
Callin' you, callin' you closer and closer
Callin' you to be free as the Spirit is free and to know your mind
Callin' you to the place where you started and once more can find
Yeah, realize that sparklin' eyes come from His innocence
Tear down your defenses, don't fall by the wayside
Callin' you, callin' you closer and closer
Callin' you, callin' you closer and closer

Can I Ascend Lyrics




Can I ascend the hill of the Lord?
Can I stand in that holy place?
There to approach the glory of my God,
Come towards to seek your face.
Purify my heart
Purify my hands
For I know it is, on holy ground I'll stand.
I'm coming up the mountain Lord
I'm seeking you and you alone.
I know that I will be transformed
My heart unveiled before you.
I'm longing for your presence Lord
Envelop me within the clouds.
I'm coming up the mountain Lord
My heart unveiled before you
I will come.
Can I ascend the hill of the Lord?
Can I stand in that holy place?
There to approach the glory of my God,
Come towards to seek your face.
Purify my heart
Purify my hands
For I know it is, on holy ground I'll stand.
I'm coming up the mountain Lord
I'm seeking you and you alone.
I know that I will be transformed
My heart unveiled before you.
I'm longing for your presence Lord
Envelop me within the clouds.
I'm coming up the mountain Lord
My heart unveiled before you
I will come.
I'm coming to worship
I'm coming to bow down
I'm coming to be with you.

I'm coming up the mountain Lord
I'm seeking you and you alone.
I know that I will be transformed
My heart unveiled before you.

Envelop me within the clouds.

Captured Lyrics




Psalm 73:25; 89:6-8, Isaiah 40:25-26
Jeni Varnadeau, George Marinelli
Sally got a brand new dolly
Bobby got a bright red bike
Wide-eyed they were so excited
They couldn't get to sleep that night
Next day they went out to play
Showin' off to their friends at school
Didn't want to be called in for dinner
And that's the way I feel about you, YEA
That's how I feel about you
Nothing captures me
But nothing captures me like you
And no one can compare to you, Lord
Nothing captures me
Nothing captures me like you
A few dents later and a tear or two
Toys were fading like the local news
Replaced to easily by the latest thing
But you are always new to me, yea
That's how I feel about you
Nothing captures me
But nothing captures me like you
And I've found so much to entertain
But nothing captures me
Nothing captures me like you

Center Aisle Lyrics




Thank God I'm back in my car, and drivin' home, and drivin' home.
'Cause the air was thin and so cold back in there.
It was my first time, won't be my last time
And the questions rise, expectations fall in light of it all.
There aren't words to say; words aren't remembered, but presence is.
A good friend once told me, and he was there, he was there.
But she wasn't there. And it's not fair, and it's not fair.
What crimes have you committed, demanding such a penance,
That couldn't wait for five more minutes and a cry for help?
'Cause this room is so peaceful and this room is so quiet.
And I hate the silence, and I can't walk the center aisle.
Well, I've been here for over three hours,
Behind the flowers,
So beautiful and young. And so alive, and so in need of someone,
Someone to talk to them. 'Cause theirs are fragile lives.
And I think about my brother,
And how I just stood there
With my hands in my pockets and my heart in my throat.
Thank God I'm back in my car and drivin' home, and drivin' home.
But in that place I leave all my days of taking life for granted
And the words I wrote for her and my best friend crying,
And a young girls lying on all out hearts.

Change The World Lyrics




Imagine a place only your soul can in vision
The heart of a child who looks, sees, and listens
She paints a picture using every color
And what she sees, she sees it like no other
One word, a voice unheard
You can change The world
With everything I know your made of
One word, a voice unheard
You can Change The World
If everyone would stop and listen
The art of innocence makes so much sense
But placed in the wrong hands, then it's wasted
Filtered through the eyes of a pure mind
A one of a kind paradise for you and I, you and I
One word, a voice unheard
You can Change The World
With everything I know your made of
One word, a voice unheard
You can Change The World
If everyone would stop and listen
Break the cycle, find your rhythm
Share the gift that you've been given - Love
You can, You can Change The World
You can Change The World with love
One word, a voice unheard
You can Change The World
With everything I know your made of
One word, a voice unheard
You can Change The World
If everyone would stop and listen
One word, a voice unheard
You can Change The World
With everything I know your made of
One word, a voice unheard
You can Change The World
If everyone would stop and listen

Changing of Times Lyrics




Never expected it to arrive so soon
But as the night drifted on
It came time to say goodbye
Turning your back and walking away
This cold winter morning is all that remains
Why couldn't you tell me to my face
Instead of hiding until I lost faith
A heart gets broken as a life gets set free
And all I asked was love me
Years passed, seasons changed and I waited
(Hate time to say goodbye, hate time)
Soon after was the pain
That would never reach you
You've gotten over me
But it seems I'll never get over you
On me I place this blame
Regrets
Praying heaven will open wide
And hold you tight
As for me, I'll be alright
This impact you would have
The songs I'd write
Dreams of you changing your mind
Anything to pass the time
But for now
I hope you can hear me as I cry
I love you and goodbye

Clean Am I Lyrics




Clean am I before my Lord
Washed am I in his cleansing word
Though sin talons at my face
Though my lips breath curse and praise
Though verse of doubt I've too oft writ
The eyes of forgiveness see none of it
Clean am I before my Lord
Saved am I from doomsday's sword
Though thy love I've scarcely shown
Though I've wept when the cock hath crowed
Though stumbled have I in miry's pit
The pierced Savior's hand it washes it
Clean am I before my Lord
Mortality's river I shall ford
Drink will I of angel's food
Take hold the redemption of the rood
And drink the blood shed to remit
The sins of my soul, he sees none of it
Clean am I before my Lord
Washed am I in his cleansing word
Clean am I before my Lord
Saved am I from doomsday's sword
Clean am I before my Lord
Mortality's river I shall ford
Clean am I before my Lord

Close Of Autumn Lyrics




When I'm cold and alone all I want is my freedom
And a sudden gust of gravity
I stop wailing and kicking
Just to let this water cover me, cover me
Only if I rest my arms, rest my mind
You'll overcome me and swell up around me
With my fighting so vain, with my vanity so fought
I'm rolling over
'Cause in just the same way
That the stream becomes swollen
Swollen with cold up over the ground
When my heart draws close to the close of autumn
Your love, your love abounds
All the time I'm thinking
Wondering how would it be
To breathe in deep
I guess I need to be careful when I ask for a drink
(Just might get what I ask for)
And I know just what You'd say to me
That's why I don't ask You
What would I ask You?
I'm like a bullheaded boy these days
Crying my toy's gone. . .
You're shiny and new
Guess I'll drop my anger here
Before I float away
And the chains around me
An awful lot of talking
I don't leave You much to say
You didn't ever leave me
And my greatest fear
Was You'd leave me here
A long time back my feet
Could touch the bottom

Come Thou Fount Of Every Blessing Lyrics




(John Wyeth)
Come, Thou fount of every blessing,
Tune my heart to sing Thy grace.
Streams of mercy, never ceasing,
Call for songs of loudest praise.
Teach me some melodious sonnet,
Sung by flaming tongues above;
Praise His name, I'm fixed upon it,
Name of God's redeeming love.
Hitherto, Thy love has blessed me,
Thou hast drawn me to this place.
And I know Thy hand will lead me,
Safely home by Thy good grace.
Jesus sought me when a stranger,
Wandering from the fold of God;
He to rescue me from danger,
Bought me with His precious blood.
O to grace, how great a debtor,
Daily I'm constrained to be.
Let Thy goodness, like a fetter,
Bind my wandering heart to Thee.
Prone to wander, Lord I feel it,
Prone to leave the God I love;
Here's my heart, O take and seal it,
Seal it for Thy courts above.

Con Que Pagaremos Lyrics




Con Que Pagaremos amor tan inmeso,
Que diste Tu vida por el pecador?
En cambio recibes la ofrenda humilde,
La ofrenda humilde, Senor Jesucristo,
De mi corazon.
Y cuando la noche extiende su mano
Mis ojos en llanto en ti fijare
Alzando mis ojos vere las estrellas
Yo se que tras ellas, Cual Padre amoroso
Tu velas por mi
No puede pagarte con oro ni plata,
El gran sacrificio que hicisto por mi
No tengo que duarte por tanto amarme;
Recibe este canto, mezclado con llanto,
Y mi corazon.

Cross Has Said It All Lyrics




The cross has said it all,
The cross has said it all.
I can't deny what You have shown,
The cross speaks of a God of love;
There displayed for all to see,
Jesus Christ, our only hope,
A message of the Father's heart:
"Come, my children, come on home."----
As...
High as the heav'ns are above the earth,
So high is the measure of Your great love;
As far as the east is from the west,
So far have You taken our sins from us
The cross has said it all,
The cross has said it all.
I never recognized Your touch
Until I met You at the cross.
We are fallen, dust to dust;
How could You do this for us?
Son of God shed precious blood;
Who can comprehend this love?
How high, how wide, how deep
How high, how wide, how deep,
How high!

Daddy's Girl Lyrics




Nine o'clock on a saturday night
No one else is home
And the lights are off
You're drunk again
And you stumble in to the family
Ah the family room
You look up at the picture on the wall
You see daddy his wife and his little girl
When are you gonna realize you're not that girl
You're no longer his little dady's girl
CHORUS:
You need to fly
Spread your wings keep flying higher
You don't need to cry
No time for tears that has passed you by
Has passed you by
You know you want to be a painter
He's got you working nine to five at McyDees
He says you gotta be more realistic
"don't you know that dreams are only dreams"
But he says that he knows what's best for you
But he, he doesn't know you at all no
He says, he says, he says all kinds of things now
He says he'll be there when you fall
CHORUS:
But you need to fly
Spread your wings keep flying higher
You don't need to cry
No time for tears that has passed you by
Has passed you by
Has passed you by, by
(na na na na na na no no)
Has passed you by
(na na na na na na na no)
BRIDGE:
Dear God help me out now
Oh Lord save my soul and you'll pray
Dear God I'm all alone now
But I don't want to be alone anymore
Spread your wings
No I don't want to
Be alone anymore no
Eeeehhhhh eehh
Aaaahhhhhh
You need to get out from under his wings
Or you're never going to learn to use your own, no
You need to stop listening to everything
Or you're never going to make it alone
Don't want, don't want to be alone anymore
Don't want to be alone anymore

Dangerous Lyrics




Blame it on my parents, blame it on my past
Blame it on the shadow all of my exes cast
You can call it my fear and insecurity
I'm just trying to rescue you from saving me
I don't want your love, its dangerous
Only time will tell when you'll become yourself
And I'll be left up on the shelf like everybody else
I know what you're doing and what happens from now on
You'll make me a project, I won't change and you'll be gone
You can call it my fear and insecurity
I'm just trying to leave you before you leave me
I see your good intentions
But I'm walking the other direction
Cause I don't need the hurt again
Of thinking this will never end
So I'm never gonna let you in
Cause I don't need the hurt again

Disguising Mistakes With Goodbyes Lyrics




Just take it back (I feel)
They're only words (your hair)
We hold the tethers (through my)
We're here together (fingers)
We paint the night (every)
Only to find (silk stand)
It's cracked and peeling (takes my)
Each face revealing (breath a-)
What we don't say (-way)
Let's take these lines and draw ourselves out of here
This shipwreck from set-sail
We'll map the stars
Tonight they help to find a way
When all is said
Words can breathe more life than death
The innocence that people share
When touching on secrets and letting down hair
Over and over let's not forget last time
I've kept the best parts and play them in my mind
This is tomorrow so take it or leave it
Empty diaries
We have nothing to say
And we'll take the right steps to keep these pages clean
You want the answers and I see them on your face
You need to know this is where the promise breaks
I can give you my answer
I know (i know)
If you stay (if you stay)
This will be (this will)
Ours to take (be ours to take)
Inside I (i feel)
Am overwhelmed (so good)
From holding back (i want)
But know that this won't be forever (you for all my days, but tonight...)
I can't stay here
You can't ask me
Just so you would know

Do You Know Like I Know (The Real Meaning Of Christmas) Lyrics




Chorus:
Do you know like I know
The real meaning of Christmas
It's all about Jesus (2x)
It's the time of the year
Christmas season is here
And the streets are filled from here to there
People don't take the time to see
That it's not about you or me
But it's about the Man who calmed a raging sea (Do you know like I know)
We take for granted what He's done throughout the year
People spending money without a care
It's time out for all the madness
Let's get back to real happiness
Cause Jesus is the reason for the season
Chorus
Its that time of the year
Christmas season is here
And the streets are filled from here to there (Do you know like I know)
People don't take the time to see
That it's not about you or me
But it's about the Man who calmed a raging sea (Do you know like I know)
We take for granted what He's done throughout the year
People spending money without a care (Do you know like I know)
Time out for all the madness
Let's get back to real happiness
Cause Jesus is the reason for the season
Chorus
Born in a manger cause He died for me
And He left us His spirit to guide our soul
Vamp:
This Christmas
It's all about Jesus
This Christmas

Don't Take Your Spirit Lyrics

I let you down, I played the part
I turned my back, I broke your heart
I did the things I wanted to
knew all along I was hurting you

I'm asking you to please forgive
touch my heart, I wanna live
whatever you do - please

(Choir) Don't take your spirit away

Wash me and make me clean

(Choir) Don't take your spirit away

Blot out all my iniquities

(Choir) Don't take your spirit from me

Whatever you do

(Choir) Don't take your spirit from me

I walked away from what I knew
but needed your love to make it through
I fell from grace, time and again
and mercy now is my only chance

I'm asking you to please forgive
change my heart, I wanna live
whatever you do - please

(Choir) Don't take your spirit away

Wash me and make me clean

(Choir) Don't take your spirit away

Blot out all my iniquities

(Choir) Don't take your spirit from me

Oh, Lord don't take

(Choir) Don't take your spirit from me

[Vamp] Oooh, oooh...

Cast me not away from your presence
renew a right spirit in me
Don't take your joy away from me
Don't take your spirit from me


(Choir) Don't take your spirit away

Wash me and make me clean

(Choir) Don't take your spirit away

Blot out all my iniquities

(Choir) Don't take your spirit from me

Oh, Lord...

(Choir) Don't take your spirit from me


Everybody say:

Don't take it, take it away
(Repeat 10x's)

I need ya, to walk right
to talk right, to pray right
I need ya, your spirit
(Repeat 3x's)

(Choir) Don't take your spirit from me
Don't take your spirit from me

Enemy Lyrics




It's amazing just how much I look like the enemy
His hatred looks so much like the hate inside of me
I've fallen like so many fools my age
Throwing stones at all who cross me
I won't become a victim of my rage
Lord, give me love for the enemy
It's expected that if you swing you'll find me swinging back
The exception is in the greatness I so clearly lack
I will learn to see you where you said you'd be
In the least of these; in my enemies

Evermore Lyrics




(Chuck Girard)
I love the feelin' when I get up in the morning
And my heart is beating fast with gladness
Oh what a feeling when I rise and think about you
You wash away all morning sadness
I know that I am walking
In the lighted path and you are watching over me
I know that I was blinded
But you came into my life and touched me and now I see
Evermore, and now I've let you in the door
And you'll never let me go never let me go,
Never let me go again
Never let me go never let me go,
Never let me go again
I love the feelin' that I get when I can talk to you
You answer me with loving-kindness
I love the way my spirit feels when I have pleased you
And you fill me with your loving-kindness
I know that you are faithful
And you love me even if I grieve you for awhile
And even though I make you sad
You look upon me and forgive me with a smile
Evermore, and now I've let you in the door
And you'll never let me go never let me go,
Never let me go again
Never let me go never let me go,
Never let me go again
Never let me go again
Never let me go again
Never let me go again
Never let me go again
(Repeat 3x)

Everybody Knows For Sure Lyrics




(Chuck Girard-Dennis Correll)
If you think that you have lost your way
All you feel inside are clouds of gray
Let me tell you what I learned today
Let me tell you what I have to say
Everybody....knows for sure

If you think that you are all alone
And you have no love to call your own

Everybody....knows for sure
When they find the heart that's pure

Execute The Sounds Lyrics




[VERSE(1)]
I'm on a mad styleee, underground
We come cool and deadly with that natural sound
And make it feel so free, you no turn it down
Vibes 619, from the Southtown
And Jah know, what I & I wanna do
Because Jah know, I a master true
You know Jah know, the real who is who
Ain't no time to fake it, make it feel brand new
It goes 1,2,3, the crew is called P.O.D.
And if you want to go to the tiptop
Break it down with that one drop
Waaaioooooooooooo!
[Chorus]
Execute the sounds
Positive come around
Impact the sounds
Positive all around

Ya wann' mess me, try to take his crown
Babylon test me, we gon' smash 'em down
Original O.G., this is my playground
No take me seriously, you gon' feel it now
I man know the harder they come
Because I man am gonna get the job done
You know I man know they don't want none
Me never have to cheat, 'cause me already won

And you don't wanna sleep, don't talk

Faith in My Eyes Lyrics




As I survey the ground for ants
Looking for a place to sit and read
I'm reminded of the streets of my hometown
How they're much like this concrete that's warm beneath my feet
And how I'm all wrapped up in my mother's face
With a touch of my father just up around the eyes
And the sound of my brother's laugh
But more wrapped up in what binds our ever distant lives
Hometown weather is on TV
I imagine the lives of the people living there
And I'm curious if they imagine me
Cause they just wanna leave; I wish that I could stay
But if I must go
Things I trust will be better off without me
But I don't want to know
Life is better off a mystery
So keep'em coming these lines on the road
And keep me responsible be it a light or heavy load
And keep me guessing with these blessings in disguise
And I'll walk with grace my feet and faith my eyes
Even from Chico to Charlottesville
I'm always well provided for
But left with longing just enough
To remind me of the day before
And to visit places from my past
But only for an hour or so
Which is long enough to smell the air
To tell the tale and find the door
But I get turned around
I mistake some happiness for blessing
But I'm blessed as the poor
Still I judge success by how I'm dressing
So I'll sing a song of my hometown
I'll breathe the air and walk the streets
Maybe find a place to sit and read
And the ants are welcome company
And I'll walk with grace my feet and faith my eyes.
And I'll walk with grace my feet and faith my eyes.

Find My Way Lyrics




[VERSE(1)]
I don't know how to let you go
I'll given to you all of me, all that we'll ever be
We share the same heart and soul
I want you to believe in me
See through my eyes and you will know
I'll take my chance that you will come home to me
Even if it takes some time for you to work it out
I'll be there
[Chorus]
I still got a ways to go
So far away from home
Inside I always knew
I'd find my way to you
(repeat)Find my way.......
[VERSE(1)]
If I could be everything you want
If I could change everything that I have done
Only you know where I have gone
I want to prove I am worthy to be called yours
I need you more that I ever have
And I don't want to stay, try and find me if you can
If I get lost along the way, please don't forget me
Know that I'll be here
[Chorus]
[Bridge]
I'll be there....[x8]

(in background)I'll find my way to you...

Fly Lyrics




Be still let your hand melt into mine.
The part of me that breathes when you breathe is losing time.
I can't find the word to say I'll never say goodbye.
I'll fly with you through the night so you know I'm not letting go.
I'm not letting go.
My tears like rain fill up the sky.
Oh my love I'm not letting go, I won't let you go.
I saw the host of silent angels waiting on their own.
Knowing that all the promises of faith come alive when you see home.
Hold still and let your hand melt into mine.
And I'll fly with you through the night so you know I'm not letting go.
I'm not letting go.
My tears like rain fill up the sky.
Oh my love I'm not letting go, I won't let you go.
Shed your heart and your breath and your pain and fly.
Now you're alive.
I'll fly with you through the night so you know I'm not letting go.
I'm not letting go.
Tears like rain fill up the sky.
Oh my love I'm not letting go, I won't let you go.
I'm not letting go, I won't let you go.

Follow Me Lyrics




Reign, most high
Almighty reign, most high
Almighty I, most high
What good is for a man to gain the whole would yet lose or forfeit his very self?
He must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me
If anyone is ashamed of me and my words, then I will be ashamed of him
When the time comes, in his glory, we will rise
Reign, most high
Almighty reign, most high
Almighty I, most high
I tell you the truth, some of you who are standing here will not taste death
Before they see Jah creaction come with his power
What can a man give in exchange for his own soul he can not save?
When the time comes, in his glory, we will rise
Reign, most high
Almighty reign, most high
Almighty I, most high
When the time comes, in his glory, we will rise

Forgive Lyrics




CHORUS:
Father forgive me, I do know what I've done
Father don't leave me, I hate what I've become
How can you see me as I really
Am and still call me pure?
And still call me pure
Cause I am lukewarm I am icy I'm
Everything but what I believe
I'm everything but sure
CHORUS:
Father forgive me, I do know what I've done
Father believe me, I hate what I've become
Father forgive me, I do know what I've done
Father don't leave me, just hold Your broken son
Cowering in the corner a child is weeping now
He's trying hard to pray but the
Words just aren't tumbling out
Everyone I know is breaking my heart
And everyone begins with me
It's just a lonely people in a dirty place
I'm as mesed up as I could be
CHORUS
BRDIGE:
I'm slinking through the shadows
I've been standing in the light
I'm tired of being who I'm not
Will ya love me tonight
CHORUS:
Forgive me
I do know what I've become
Father forgive me, I do know
Father don't leave me,
Just hold Your precious son
Hold me
Please don't leave me
Just love me

Hold me
Please don't leave me
Just believe me

Forgive And Forget (Unreleased Alternative Mix) Lyrics




It was a cold October day
I wish it didn't have to be this way
You told me that you'd be home soon
You never came back
What was I supposed to do
Hey Pop if you hear this song
I did what you told me
And always stayed strong
But I admit I can't keep this up
I try not to be, try not to be
Down on my luck
What's done is done and let's move on
Forgive and forget is what I've been taught
I still love you with all of my heart
I'm not a genius and I'm not all that smart
But one thing I know and it's crystal clear
Is I love you Dad and I want you here
The times change and so do we
I still hope that you remember me
Sometimes I feel like I'm gonna cry
Sometimes I feel like I am all tore up inside
I did what I could and do what I can
I still want to be your "little man"
I'm not as afraid of the claw anymore
If you come back dad I'll sleep on the floor
You're still my best friend I ever had
Forget the past just be my dad

Fractions Lyrics




One in three you're here
To tell me we can't do this anymore
(one in three, you're here to tell me we can't do this
Three for three, I will disagree)
Your hair and face against the mirror
As I take the steps to save what's left of me
Someone's out when it's over
People steal from you
They take anything they choose
It's good to see you
(I missed you last night)
That's such a lovely color
(it goes with your eyes)
Before we fall asleep
(I just wanted to say)
This all seems so easy but there are choices to make
Can't decide, then look at the faces
(candlelight)
We're burning the pages
And hurting ourselves with this false start
Resign yourself to always be (and we pretend as if it gets easier)
Without the one thing you need (but does it get easier)
Debating words with no reply
When we have these mornings where we can say goodbye
I wanted to mean everything to you
But this isn't right
You keep coming back disassembled
And I keep losing this fight
I won't answer
Dancing under starlight glow
No one in the city knows
Confidence can take you
When nerves try to shake you
From going all the way
It's not that far
We watch the tide roll in
(with cold air and coffee cakes)
Holding our words at lips
(stopping the sounds they make)
We know the way to go
(we know what steps to take)
To be here
These words with no reply
Stopping we's and starting i's
This need is killing me
And taking me over
I wanted to mean everything to you
But this isn't right
You keep coming back disassembled
And I keep losing this fight

Freedom Fighters Lyrics




Today I heard what them people say
Dem want to live free greedily, with everyone to pay.
You play under the sun while others fight in skies of gray
But I say if you don't like it this way, then why stay? Go away
(Chorus 1)
Ooowoooo
Freedom Fighters
Ignite Jah
Ooowoooo
Freedom Fighters
Shine Jah

Live free, Be free, Die free
Freedom Fighters
Live free, Be free, Die free
Ignite Jah
Live free, Be free, Die free
Freedom Fighters
Live free, Be free, Die free
Shine Jah
Today I heard what them people say
Them say "The Man came in and he took our choice away"
You portray selfishness and hate
While some prepare to die today
I say you fade away, appreciate life and liberate
(Chorus 1 then 2)
[Bridge]
We have the right - to live in peace
And you must fight - for what you keep
If what you keep - holds truth inside
Stand up, defend - lay down and die
We have the right to live in peace
You must fight for what you keep
If what you keep holds truth inside
Stand up, defend, or lay down and die
(Chorus 1 then 2 again)
Live free, Be free
Jah say live free
Jah say die free
Live free, Jah say die free
Live free, Jah say be free
I and I, Live free
I and I, Die free
Stand up, defend or lay down and die[x4]

Friend Of Sinners Lyrics




There is a voice that must be heard,
There is a song that must be sung;
There is a name that must be lifted high.
There is a treasure more than gold,
There is a King upon the throne;
There is One whose praise will fill the skies.
His name is Jesus,
Friend of sinners,
Jesus, Jesus,
Friend of mine.
There is a peace that calms our fears,
There is a love stronger than death;
There is a hope that goes beyond the grave.
There is a friend who won't let go,
There is a heart that beats for You;
There is One name by which we are saved.
Bridge:
When I was captive fears,
You were the One who came to me,
You set met free.

Friendship And The Fear Lyrics




VERSE 1:
Show me the way of the cross once again
Denying myself for the love that I've gained
Everything's You now, everything's changed,
It's time You had my whole life;
You can have it all.
CHORUS:
(Yes,) I resolve to give it all;
Some things must die,
Some things must live.
Not, "What can I gain,"
But, "What can I give?"
If much is required when much is recieved,
Then You can have my whole life;
Jesus, have it all.
VERSE 2:
I've given like a beggar but lived like the rich
And crafted myself a more comfortable cross,
Yet what I am called to is deeper than this,
It's time You had my whole life;
You can have it all.

Funny Lyrics




Ecclesiastics 11:5, Daniel 6:27, Psalm 86:7
Jeni Varnadeau
Dedicated to Rev. Kempton Baldridge and FJ '99
I sit and dream into an open sea
I scheme to save the world, but I find myself drowning
But you come and rescue me when I'm in over my head
From my humanness and my craziness
Lord take me, Lord change me
I don't know how you pull my head out of the ocean
I don't know why you dig my feet out of the sand
And I don't know why you'd choose to send your son to save someone
It's a funny way you deal with me
It's a funny way you deal with me
It's a funny way you deal with me
But I'm so glad you do
You always keep my life interesting
Never really knowing quite what to expect
Still it's unpredictable and awkward at best
In my uneasiness and my brokenness
You grace me, You embrace me
It's a funny way you rescue me

Galilee Lyrics




(Chuck Girard)
Jesus took a walk by the water side of the Sea of Galilee
(Walkin' by the sea, the Sea of Galilee)
Jesus told the men at the waters edge,
Drop your nets and follow me
(Walkin' by the sea, the Sea of Galilee)
You've been fishin' in the sea for such a long time
But now these days are comin' to an end
(Walkin' by the sea, the Sea of Galilee)
Come right now and walk along with me
And I will make you fishers of men
(Walkin' by the sea, the Sea of Galilee)
Jesus means for us to follow
What was good for then is just as good for now
We can be the same right now as Peter,
James and John were then
The Bible tells you how
When Jesus took the walk by the water side
He was beckoning to you and me
Callin' men from every time and ever where
Who really, really wanted to be free
Jesus wants you now to leave your nets
And to dedicate your life to Him
He only wants to share His everlasting love
And to make you fishers of men

Ghetto Lyrics




(Chorus:)
I believe that this world believes in love (2x)
We might never really agree
On anything about the lives we live
Between you and me. So differently.
We don't always see things the same
We should agree to disagree
If we meet at love we can work it out
(Chorus:)
I believe you and I will overcome
I believe you and I believe in love
Whether you think I'm so confused
Or if you feel the way I do
So don't give in to this hate within
Living in this world of pain
Don't let it bring you down
The world is a ghetto
(Chorus:)
I believe that this world believes in love
I believe you and I believe in love

Giving Up Hurts the Most Lyrics




Angels mourn crying, praying for your soul
As my eyes open from their state of sleep I feel my blood
Turn into a frozen river
Nightmares so close death was in the air
My heart locked shut, and I gave you the key
Promise never to leave
As lies hold me emptiness fills my broken heart
Screaming your name hoping for a response, silence summer
Drowned by winter
To look in your face and realized the time we spent the chances I
Had have drifted away from my fingertips
Your life, your thoughts, your dreams, your love
Never tried my hardest and now I pray as the hurt enters
I love you and I still love you
Even though I never showed it
A piece of me is gone forever
Clutching memories held so close
Repeating words of love spoken to late
My eyes look all around but all they can focus on is you
For in you I find me
Days past by and thy death still lingers
This coldness will never satisfy me
I want to be surrounded by angels in a place
Where the sun is so warm it burns my insides
Surrounded by angels
Where love takes my darkest depressions
And throws it into the deepest of sea
A place I can call home, I'm crying to you Jesus
Mend me, break me, make me
You're all I've got now
My eyes look all around but all they can focus on is you
For in you I find me
Farewell my friend your time has come
And never will I be able to tell you I love you again

And then hit repeat

All the world will feel the shock
But you're the rock
In a global brealdown

Go tell it on the mountain that Jesus Christ is, yes He's born
Now when I was a seeker, I sought both night and day
I asked the Lord to help me and He showed me the way
He made me a watchman upon the city wall
And though I am a Christian, I am the least of all
Go tell it on the mountain over the hills and everywhere
Go tell it on the mountain that Jesus Christ is
Jesus Christ is born

Great Is Thy Faithfulness Lyrics




Great is thy faithfulness, O God my Father
There is no shadow of turning with thee
Thou changest not thy compassions they fail not
As thou hast been thou forever will be
Chorus
Great is thy faithfulness, great is thy faithfulness
Morning by morning new mercies I see
All I have needed thy hand hath provided
Great is thy faithfulness, Lord unto me
Summer and winter and springtime and harvest
Sun, moon, and stars in their courses above
Join with all nature in manifold witness
To thy great faithfulness, mercy and love
There is no pardon for sin and a peace that endureth
Thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide
Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow
Blessings all mine, with then thousand, ten thousand beside
Repeat Chorus x2
Great is thy faithfulness, great is thy faithfulness
Great is thy faithfulness

Greater Still Lyrics




A vessel filled with only me
Is no good to You
For a heart can be no more than what's inside
The only thing I really need
Only You can do
So purge my heart till only You abide
Chorus
I must become less, so much less
That You become greater still
Lord empty me of anything
That keeps me from what's real
For only through my weakness
Can your power be fulfilled
Lord I want to become so much less
That You become greater still
So often I have been content
With my deeds alone
They took me far yet left me unfulfilled
You promised that You'd fill the void
That my heart had known
So I yield myself completely to your will
Repeat Chorus

Greatest Story Lyrics




Some days your own resolve is strong
And other days you bend
It's two steps forward, one step back
And a stumble now and then
You wonder if you'll ever really make the difference
You've prayed that you will
Well, I know that prayer will be fulfilled 'cause
(CHORUS)
Your life woven day by day
Is a new design of the glory God displays
On the canvas of creation
Through the poem of history
In the pattern of redemption
Running through the tapestry
Your life in Christ can be
The greatest story ever told
You cannot see the hands of God
Or feel the grace that flows
From Him through you to those you touch
In ways you'll never know
You cannot measure worth by human standards
That's always a lie
Oh, you have to see through heaven's eyes how...
(CHORUS)
In the light of eternity
Standing face to face you will finally see
For the very first time you'll understand
Your perfect place in the master plan and how...
(CHORUS)

He That Dwelleth (Psalm 91) Lyrics




He That Dwelleth (Psalm 91)
Written by Armirris Palmore
by Daryl Coley
Album: In My Dreams
In thee, Oh Lord, I put my trust
And on Your name, Lord on Your name, I will call
And You will answer
And deliver me out of the hands of my enemies
A thousand shall fall at my side
Ten thousand at my right hand
But no evil shall come nigh my dwelling
He that dwelleth in the secret place
Of the most High
Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty
Shall abide in the presence of God
He shall abide
No evil shall come nigh him

Heroes Lyrics




This squeaky clean appearance
I've been working on
Is often in the way
Of the truth and life that I'm portraying
This narrow road I'm walking
Is rising up to meet me
Meet me right square in the face
I'm praying
Lord guide us to see
The key to our redemption
Is knowing our humanity
There are no heroes
There are no great ones here
We're only fools who know that we are fools
There are no saints here
There are no guiltless ones
We're only those who know that we've been rescued
The ancient art of making
You believe that I am
Half as good as I wish I was

Hide Or Seek Lyrics




Another morning comes along,
Both sides of the bed seem wrong
You still paint your brave face on anyway
Everyday you want to quit
Tryin to make the pieces fit
But you pretend you're lacking in this game we play
For years, you've kept your wounded heart so well disguised
But now the game is up and you've got to decide
Is it gonna be hide or seek?
Is it gonna be win or lose?
Is it gonna be pride that keeps you from the love that can save you
Isn't it worth a try? There's nothing for you to fear
You can't deny the burning question here
Is it gonna be hide or seek?
Composure is your only goal
Don't wanna bear your trembling soul
But if you let your defenses go then you would learn
You don't have to wear that mask
You are loved no questions asked
There is no test to pass, no grade to earn
For years, you've kept your wounded heart locked deep inside
You can be free at last, but you've got to decide
Is it gonna be hide or seek?
Is it gonna be win or lose?
Is it gonna be pride that keeps you from the love that can save you
Isn't it worth a try? There's nothing for you to fear
You can't deny the burning question here
Is it gonna be hide or seek?
Don't you think its time to seek the one who came and died?
So you would never have to hide again.
Is it gonna be hide or seek?
Is it gonna be win or lose?
Is it gonna be pride that keeps you from the love that can save you
Isn't it worth a try? There's nothing for you to fear
You can't deny the burning question here
Oh, don't deny the burning question here
Is it gonna be hide or seek?

Higher Lyrics




copyright Brian Ray, Crystal Lewis
Hear my cry oh God
Listen to my prayer
From the end of the earth
I cry out to you
Lead me to
The might rock
That is higher than I
Lead me to
The might rock
That is higher than I
Let me dwell in your tent
I shall live forever
Oh to be safe underneath
The shelter of your wings
Lead me to
The might rock
That is higher than I
Lead me to
The might rock
That is higher than I
I sing in the shadow of your wings
My soul thirsts for you
In a dry and weary land
Where water can't be found
Your love is better than life

His Faithfulness Lyrics




Some may say that I am fearless
Some may say that I am strong
On the surface I may seem quite self-assured
But if they could see the person
Underneath the face I wear
They would see I'm just a child who's insecure
But I have a loving Father
Who surrounds me with His arms
And if there is a reason
For this peace, for this calm
Chorus
It is His faithfulness
It is His strength in me
My only confidence
I find in Jesus' name
It is His faithfulness
That gives me rest and peace
And in His faithfulness
You will find the same
And I could not stand without Him
All my strength would fade away
I would be lost and helpless as a lamb
I am constantly dependent
On His power and His love
To create in me the person that I am
And it's true that I am fearless
Yes, it's true that I am strong
But Jesus is the reason
Not myself, not my own
Repeat Chorus

I cried Oh Lord please make things alright
He said He'd all my battles fight
I had a talk with God
Please call Him to guide me right
Let me find peace and a better life
He said He'll make everything alright
I had a heart to heart talk with God last night
I cried Oh Lord my way is dark
I need Your light down in my heart
He said I'm God all by myself
If you trust me you don't need no one else
I said Thank God for now I'm free
Thank you for giving me victory whenever I need Him
He's so good to me

Walk me through this journey
So my life will bring glory to your name

I Just Don't Want Coffee Lyrics




Though I am small I've seen things far beyond these city walls
The land is flat and it rolls for miles
I don't know much I know I've many places yet to see
I know I've been here for a while
Wouldn't you know just when I thought I had this figured out
I'm back at my first day at school
Trying not to think too loud I raise my hand to scratch my head
No ideas of what to do
'Cause something's changed today
And what it is I just can't say
And if I don't seem ok, well I'm ok
So sue me, sue me, if I just don't want coffee tonight
I've got this friend who's been around the world a time or two
He keeps maps on all his walls
I've never been to France, I've heard it's nice this time of year
Except I don't speak French at all
I wonder,would it be as hard
To have never seen you
As to keep you from my sight?
And though I've talked about you to my friend a million times
I first saw you tonight
I still hear you telling me what a big mistake I've made
Funny that's what I've been telling you
I can lead a horse to water
You can even make him drink
But you can't change his point of view
Tonight as I was driving home I passed a coffee shop
And I glanced through the window there
It was just like the one where you work where I met you.
I didn't stop, I wouldn't dare -
Cause something's changed today
Your way is not my way
Today's another day and I'm okay
I think I need some rest
Rest my head, arrest my head

I Know A Lady Lyrics




(Chuck Girard)
I know a lady, she is my lady
I met her years ago
We found each other, found one another,
We found each other slowly
When I was lonely, I had You only,
I asked if it would please You
If you would show me, my one and only
You did it in Your timing
And when I saw her, finally saw she was the one
I realized what You had done, all along
Oooo ooo ooo oooo ooo
We now have children, You gave us children
They love You much as we do
We are so thankful, we know the reason,
That we are all a family
I know a lady, she always shows me
The love You give her for me
I know a lady, I thank You for her
Sometimes it shocks me how You knew me so well

I Love To Tell The Story Lyrics




I love to tell the story
Of unseen things above
Of Jesus and His glory
Of Jesus and His love
And nothing else can do
Because I know it's true
I love to tell the story
It'll be my theme in glory
I wanna tell the world
Of Jesus and His love
I love to tell the story
It'll be my theme in glory
For some have never heard
Of Jesus and His love
I love to tell the story
It's pleasant to repeat
It seems each time I tell it
More wonderfully sweet
And nothing else can do
Because I know its true
And when I stand in glory
And seem Him face to face
I'll sing the only story
Of His amazing grace
I love to tell the story...
Of His love
I love to tell the story
Cuz nothing satisfies
Like Jesus and His love

I need Thee every hour,
Most gracious Lord;
No tender voice like Thine,
Can peace afford.

I need Thee every hour,
Stay Thou near by;
Temptations lose their power,
When Thou art nigh.

Every hour I need Thee!
O bless me now, my Savior,
I come to Thee.
I need Thee every hour,
In joy or pain;
Come quickly and abide,
Or life is vain.

Every hour I need Thee!

I Need You Lyrics




Strangely out of place, and there's a light filling this room where none would follow before.
I can't deny it burns me up inside.
I fan the flames to melt away my pride.
Do I want shelter from the rain or the rain to wash me away?
I need you, I need you, I need you.
I need you, I need you, I need you.
You're all I'm living for.
I might sound like a fool, but I think I felt you moving closer to me.
Face to the ground to hide the fatal cut.
I fight the weight, I feel you lift me up.
You are the shelter from the rain and the rain to wash me away.
I need you, I need you, I need you.
I need you, I need you, I need you.
You're all I'm living for.
I need you, I need you, I need you.
You're all I'm living for.
Face to the ground to hide the fatal cut.
I fight the weight, feel you lift me up.
I can't deny it burns me up inside.
I fan the flames to melt away my pride.
I only had a second to spare, but all the time in the world to know you're there.
You are the shelter from the rain and the rain to wash me away.
I need you, I need you, I need you.
You're all I'm living for.
I need you, I need you, I need you.
You're all I'm living for.
I need you, I need you, I need you.

I Now Live Lyrics




copyright Brian Ray
Many people in the world walk around with a hole in the heart
Many people in the world wanna fill that hole with the latest thing that's outta sight
Many people in the world will never truly be set free
The only reason that we live is Christ came down
And died for you and me
I now live because Christ died
And though he had suffered
He suffered it all for me
I now live because Christ died
And though he had suffered
He suffered it all for me
Falling in and out of love is what the world is turnin' to
Never really satisfied, not really sure
Always needin' something more
Looking for another way without the work to get the pay
The wages of a righteous man bring him life, he can surely say
I now live because Christ died
And though he had suffered
He suffered it all for me
I now live because Christ died
And though he had suffered
He suffered it all for me

I Remember Lyrics




(Chuck Girard)
I remember what you told me, it wasn't too long ago
You told me that you knew the answer, But now I wonder if you really know
I see what appears to be a conflict, what you say and what you do
And I really have to admit it, I don't know how to analyze you
It seems that you never really try to do the best that you can
'Cause the things you say are not the things you do just like any other man
At first you really talked religion, but now that isn't comin' through
I really had hoped that you really were right
And I watched to see how well you'd do
But it seems to me now it was just another trip
Because I didn't see a lasting change
And the whole thing strikes me as peculiar
More than just a little bit strange
You never really try to do the best that you can
And that'll never really be enough
'Cause I saw you back down from what you said you believed
When the goin' got a little rough
It's really too bad, I hoped that you were right
I was really lookin' for a change
But it seems this trip is just like all the rest
And I guess I'll have to pass again

I Waited Lyrics




I waited
For the Lord on High
I waited
And He heard my cry
He took me out, out of despair
And showed my where to walk
From fear into security
From quicksand into the light

That I have been restored
So they will kneel and understand
To return and trust in the Lord

I Will Follow Lyrics




It feels like I'm stuck here lost in a memory of you
And the time I failed you thinking that you'll pull through.
Yet you, you still remind me you hold the key to my heart.
Give me one more try to tell you what I'm feeling deep inside.
I will trust in you, that you'll see me through the darkness.
Your ways are perfect. Your heart is seamless.
And you're the one who loves me more than I could ever know.
Why must I go through this misery.
Take me to the place where you can make me to the man that I need to be.
You keep trying to tell me what life means but I keep chasing dreams not meant for me.
I will trust in you, that you'll see me through the darkness.
Your ways are perfect. Your heart is seamless.
And you're the one who loves me more than I could ever know.
Anywhere you're taking me to. I will follow you.
No matter what I'm going through. I will follow you.
Standing face to face with you is all I want to do.
I'll follow you.

If Tomorrow Was Forever Lyrics




I went to bed angry
I woke up on the floor
I probably could have helped it
I could have prayed some more
But I was tired
I didn't get enough sleep the night before
And so I'm sorry
I feel about three inches tall
I wish I could crawl back under the covers
I went to bed angry
If tomorrow was forever
Could then I forgive you
If heaven came and got me
Would my heart be right with you
I've been praying for heaven to come
Now I don't know
Cause I see something in me
That's part of you

Breathe
This is the knowledge that I bring
Universal, worldwide culture
Inhale, exhale
I takes it all in
No second guessing
Truth brings forth a new passion
No second guessing
Push aside this fate for the ransom
Stands among, gold seven and lox'd up
White wool, fire eyes, glowing in red
Water of rush, planet hold, in double edge
Falling down dead, last first, it's one life
Life source, in resurrection, these bloodstains
Shining face, this morning stars reflections
Embracing light, the clearness of sunrise
Tower strong, in this refuge, my fortress
Breathe
This is the knowledge that I bring
Universal, worldwide culture
Inhale, exhale
I takes it all in
No second guessing
Truth brings forth a new passion
No second guessing
Push aside this fate for the ransom

In A Lose, Lose Situation Lyrics




Don't be late
There's no time to be afraid
There's a way
To clean up the mess you made
If I could tell the truth
Or lie would I attempt to do at the same time
Expect you to apologize for trying
To make me so up tight
Don't say its just a game we play
I can't loose the taste
If you regulate how the blood is pumping
Through the veins from my heart into my brain
In time this blood supply
Will change me from red to white
Every thought that you know I'm thinking
May as well be the knife stuck in my back
This taxing fever makes me gravitate to this place
This is still my life
And yours to defy
Anyone in their right mind would ever let you inside
Anyone in their right mind
A broken ties with the neighborhood
A feeling like
From an empty glass
Of nothing good
And ...?
Deciding as I wait for her to entertain
Careful not to (to breath in [3x])
The right time and the right way to elevate
Careful not to (to breath in [3x])
To breath in the air that so proudly puts to death
My own fathers name
I remember when your hand started shaking
There's a better way to clean up the mess you've been making

In A Win, Win Situation Lyrics




I've noticed your design
Cause I'm not blind
I'm like a cigarette
Burning burning every night
But there's no ash that falls
There's only telephone calls in the afternoon
Stretching through a thousand walls
So I'll pray
For words to say
To make these miles disappear
If you can't sleep alone (If you can't sleep alone)
I'm better off
I'm better off
If you can't sleep alone
If you're measuring with time
In seconds or in lifetimes
There's no difference
It's constantly just passing by
But there's nothing at all
No valium or slow songs
To relax my view
Just you, maybe your new perfume
So I'll pray
For words to say
To make these miles disappear
If you can't sleep alone (if you can't sleep alone)
I'm better off
I'm better off
If you can't hear the song (if you can't hear the song)
Then turn it off
Then turn if off
If you cast that first stone
Then throw them all
Then throw them all
I start to sleep but it's not over
The second hand is moving slower now
I'd take it all back
To start over again
Just between the rock and paper
The scissors cut in so much deeper
I'd take it all back
To start over again

In Love With You Lyrics




I feel like singing now
My heart is free
You've forgiven me
Your name's the sweetest sound to my ears,
Lord hold me near
I'm in love, love with You
Like I never dreamed
I'm in love, love with You
And I'm flying free
From the things that tie me down
I'm walking on the ground
I'm in love, love with You
You're all I think about
Day and night all the time
How you make my world
Go 'round and make it stop
You're all I got

In My Dreams Lyrics




In My Dreams
Written by V. Michael McKay
by Daryl Coley
Album: In My Dreams
I dreamed of a perfect place
With but one human race
There were no tears
No doubt, no fears
All hate had disappeared
I dreamed all men were free
There were no boundaries
No selfish pride, none critized
All lived in harmony
Bridge
No shades of black or white or brown
Poverty could not be found
The thought of men sleeping on the ground
Could never be in my dreams
This whole world is in God's hand
Every boy, girl, woman, man
Instead of dreaming I should ask
What should I do?
What is my task?
To love you more each day
To help you find your way
To erase all hate, n'er intimidate
One with a different face
To give the best of me
To give unselfishly
This gift of love, from up above
God let it be, let it be
As in my dreams
(repeat from bridge)

Into Your Arms Again Lyrics




Welcome to my big mistakes
Selfish dreams and wasted days
Welcome to the part of me I hate
I come to You with head in hands
The little bit I understand
Compels me to confess my wicked ways
I wanna be the man who can't pretend
Cos' nothings left here worth defending now
Take my life, take it all
I surrender as I fall
Into Your arms again
Take my dreams, set me free
Let Your mercy catch me as I fall
Into Your arms again
Soon enough there comes a day
When no one here will know our names
And everything we made is washed away
I'm back again with heart in hand
Cos' here's the thing I understand
It's all about the way we finally break
So I wanna be the man on hands and knees
Who doesn't try to hide his poverty
Draw me down to my defeat
Let your grace wash over me
We all need redemption just the same
Let it rain
Cover me, cover me
Hold me in Your hands of mercy
Cover me, cover me
Only You alone are worthy

It Took A Child To Save The World Lyrics




It Took A Child to Save The World
by Fred Hammond
Written by Reggie Hamm and George King
Album: Christmas... Just Remember
Verse I
All the angels held their breath
As heaven put on human clothes
Rang the news God did not forget
His promise that was sent
From the prophets old
Verse II
The answer came in a sacred birth
Truth an justice meek and mild
All the hope and the peace on earth
Rested in the hands of a newborn child
Chorus
From God in the highest
Heaven made a way in a manger
From God in the highest
Love was born through
A simple virgin girl
It took a child to save the world
Verse II
For the ones who were lost He came
Every child of Adams fall
Emmanuel was the precious name
Of the small boy who would grow
And would touch us all
Chorus
(Repeat)
Verse III
So let the kings and the nations bow
To the baby so divine
As we lift up our voices now
Praises to the Savior of all mankind
Chorus
(Repeat)
Vamp
For God so loved the world
That He gave His only Son
(It took a child to save the world, yeah)
For God so loved the world
That He gave His only Son
(He came to seek the lost like you and I, yeah)
He came to seek and save
Redeem us back to Him
(For God so loved the world)
For God so loved the world
That He gave His only Son

If you will believe in Him eternal life you'll find

It's All Good Lyrics




Luke 11:1-13, Matthew 7:7-12
Jeni Varnadeau, Rory Partin, Tony Palacios
How do I articulate when so much clutter always occupies my crazy mind?
There's a tangle in my head, I got so much left unsaid wanna pray, but
Fear what I might find if I ask for bread, will I get stones instead?
Why do I question that you'd give me the very best?
It's all good
When I ask and believe
'cause you know what I want
And you give what I need
It's all good when I ask
'cause you never hold back
You answer me
And it's all good
I seldom realize with my finite mind how big and powerful you are
You listen to my cries though sometimes
I feel they're insignificant and oh, so small
I may not always get what I expect
But you gave your son, so I know you give the best
There's nothing you wouldn't do
You'll provide in your perfect will
Oh, what freedom to leave my cares with you
To wait, and to be still

It's Rising Up Lyrics




It's rising up from coast to coast,
From north to south, and east to west;
The cry of hearts that love your name,
Which with one voice we will proclaim.
The former things have taken place,
Can this be the new day of praise?
A heav'nly song that comes to birth,
And reaches out to all the earth.
Oh, let the cry to nations ring,
That all may come and all may sing:
"Holy is the Lord."
"Holy is the Lord."
And we have heard the Lion's roar,
That speaks of heaven's love and power.
Is this the time, is this the call
That ushers in Your kingdom rule?
Oh, let the cry to nations ring,
That all may come and all may sing:
"Jesus is alive!"
"Jesus is alive!"

Jesus In My Life Lyrics

I get down upon my knees
When I think of you
And what you've done for me
You brought me back
And gave to me
A precious gift for all to see
Jesus in my life
For all to see
Jesus in my life
For all to see
I will lay down my life
To serve you Lord
My whole life
I give it back
Do what you will
Take my voice
So all can hear
Jesus in my life
So all can hear
Jesus in my life
So all can hear
So all can see
Why I'm on my knees
So all can hear
Why I sing to Thee

Jesus Is The Sweetest Name Lyrics




Jesus Is The Sweetest Name
by Wilmington Chester Mass Choir
Written by Pierre Walker
Album: Live
The name of Jesus is so sweet to me
In His word He told me
To taste and see
That He's good and if I trust Him
He'd bless me
I tried Him and I found Him
To be alright
I will serve Him and praise Him
With all my might
Cause Jesus is the sweetest name
Chorus:
Jesus is the sweetest name
Sweetest name I'll ever know
I'll tell it where ever I go
When I'm alone
he keeps me company
Ain't nobody better than
Jesus to me
Jesus is the sweetest name I know
He's been my doctor in a sick room
He's been my lawyer in a court room
When I was down and out
He's been my best friend
I love to walk and
Talk with Him everyday
He drives all my sorrows away
Because Jesus is the sweetest
Name I know
Chorus

Jesus To The World (Roaring Lambs) Lyrics




A little girl who is hungry
Prays for something she can eat
A single mom doing all she can
Finds herself out on the street
Will we see their need and hear their cries
Look at our watch and just walk on by
Or will we stop and take the time
To be Jesus in their lives
Chorus:
We need to be lambs that roar
We need to be eagles that soar
We need to be salt
We need to be light
We need to be Jesus to the world
We need to take love into the streets
Be willing to turn the other cheek
We need to be strong
We need to be weak
We need to be Jesus
Jesus to the world
Jesus came with a message
That would change the way we live
He showed us all by example
What the heart of heaven is
He saw our need and He heard our cry
He loved us so much that He gave His life
He taught us by his sacrifice
How we should live our lives
Repeat Chorus
We need to be Jesus

Jesus What A Wonderful Child Lyrics




(featuring Anointed)
Jesus Jesus
Oh what a wonderful Child
Jesus Jesus
So lowly meek and mild
New life new hope new joy He brings
Won't you listen to the angels sing
Glory glory glory
To the newborn King
He was herald by the angel
Born in a lowly manger
The Virgin Mary was His mother
And Joseph was His earthly father
Three wise men came from afar
They were guided by a shining star
To see King Jesus where He lay
In a manger filled with hay
Glory to the newborn King
Glory to the newborn King
The angels sing
The Holy One
Heaven adores
The Son of God

Jigsaw (Single Mix) Lyrics




When I was a kid
Puzzles were the best
You took a great memory and then you
Tore 'em all to shreds
Picking up the pieces
Remember where they fell
Couldn't find that one last piece to fill
That empty well
Veins are runnin' dry
Confusion in my mind
Where's that one last piece, man, I think
I'm going blind
I'm sick of this jigsaw
I think I'm cracking up
Why can't I find the piece
That's lacking in my guts
The top is off the box is gone
The puzzles laid out on the floor
I've held the piece in my hand
I know I've seen it here before
Empty space, incomplete
Is the puzzle of the soul
If I search on my knees I know I'll find
The peace that fills the hole
Searching through the what-if's
What about the maybe's
I think about the time that's spent
Trying to separate these
Driven to the brink
Maybe pushing crazy
I have seen the enemy and the enemy is me
I can't fight any longer
The battle's already won
If I only saw it earlier
How could I have been so dumb
The piece was in the sky
Reflected in my eyes
Now my old self I hardly recognize

Joy To The World Lyrics




Verse 1
Joy to the world the Lord is come
Let earth receive her King
Let every heart prepare Him room
And heaven and nature sing
And heaven and nature sing
And heaven and heaven and nature sing
Verse 2
Joy to the earth the Savior reigns
Let men their songs employ
While fields and floods
Rocks hills and plains
Repeat the sounding joy
Repeat the sounding joy
Repeat repeat the sounding joy
Verse 3
No more let sins and sorrows grow
Nor thorns infest the ground
He comes to make His blessings flow
Far as the curse is found
Far as the curse is found
Far as far as the curse is found
Verse 4
He rules the world with truth and grace
And makes the nations prove
The glories of His righteousness
And wonders of His love
And wonders of His love
And wonders and wonders of His love

King Jesus Is His Name Lyrics




Run and tell everybody you see
Bethlehem has a little baby
Born in a stable late one night
Underneath a sky so starry bright
The star made the night like day
And the shepherds came to bring Him praise
Wise men brought Him beautiful gifts
They brought gold, myrrh, and frankincense
What did they call that little bitty baby
King Jesus is His name
What did the heavenly host proclaim King Jesus is His name
Who would have thought this tiny lad
Would hold all power in His hand
Tell me, what did they call Him
King Jesus is His name
People came from all around
They knelt in awe of this King they found
The manger held such a holy sight
This gift from heaven would bring them life
Life forever in a heavenly place
For every nation, color, every creed and race
This little baby's going to change the world
In the hearts of men, women, boys and girls

Knocking On The Door Of Heaven Lyrics




We will give ourselves no rest
'Till Your Kingdom comes on earth
We've positioned watchmen on the walls
Now our prayers will flow like tears
For You've shared Your heart with us
God of Heaven, on our knees we fall
Come down in power, reveal Your heart again
Come hear our cries, the tears that plead for rain
We're knocking, knocking on the door of heaven
We're crying, crying for this generation
We're praying for Your Name to be known in all of the earth
We're watching, watching on the walls to see You
We're looking, looking for a time of breakthrough
We're praying for Your Word to bear fruit in all of the earth
All of the earth

Lay Your Burden Down Lyrics




(Chuck Girard)
Lay your burden down, lay your burden down
Take your troubled soul, your tired mind
And lay your burden down
Lay your burden down, get your feet on solid ground
Take your worries to the foot of the cross, and lay your burden down
Lay your burden down, lay your burden down
Take your weary life, your heavy load, and lay your burden down
Lay your burden down, get your feet on solid ground
Take your failures to the foot of the cross, and lay your burden down
(Lay your burden down)
You've been tryin' hard to make it all alone
Tryin' hard to make it on your own
And the strength you once were feelin', isn't there no more
And you think the wrong you've done, is just too much to be forgiven
But you know that isn't true
Just lay your burden down, He has Forgiven you
Lay your burden down, lay your burden down
Take your burden to the cross, and lay it down
Lay your burden down, lay your burden down
Take your worries to the cross and lay them down

Left With Alibis And Lying Eyes Lyrics




Watching someone stop breathing.
Feel their arms and palms releasing.
The color, the smell of the skin,
All of this with your fingerprints.
And there isn't a thing that they can do.
Drive drive drive drive,
I don't want to get caught.
We'll say, we'll say we're innocent.
And there is enough to prove we're not.
They will believe anything.
I'm packing all my clothes and never going to go home again.
There isn't one thing we forgot.
You'll see, we'll get away with this.
My jeans, your shoes, we'll throw away everything we used.
But there's still your worried mouth
To match your worried eyes.
The only two things left to find.
Drive drive drive drive,
I don't want to get caught.
We'll say, we'll say we're innocent.
And there is enough to prove we're not.
They will believe anything.
I'm packing all my clothes and never going to go home again.
There isn't one thing we forgot.
You'll see, we'll get away with this.
There's no compromise.
So remember this.
Your hands are lies.
It's too late for riffs.
We'll go home and close the door,
Then pull the sheets up to our heads and sleep.
And there isn't a thing that they can do.
Drive drive drive drive,
I don't want to get caught.
We'll say, we'll say we're innocent.
And there is enough to prove we're not.
They will believe anything.
I'm packing all my clothes and never going to go home again.
There isn't one thing we forgot.
You'll see, we'll get away with this.

Let Go Lyrics




Hey, are you coming, are you going
Brother are you just wasting time
Is there a rhyme or a reason
And when you gonna make up your mind
Are you holding back your tears
Will you ever let the river flow
Or are you caught up in your tears
Let the living water save your soul
Let go, let the mercy river flow
Let go, get on your knees and
Let Him know
Let go, He'll build you up and
Make you strong
All the saints will march in glory
Hear the angels sing along
And let go, just let go
I am with you on this journey
I'll be with you 'til the end of time
You know you'll never ever be
Abandoned
So precious, this child of mine
Jesus in my arms I will hold you
This world at times is so unkind
Walk with faith into His glory
Let go and let your spirit fly
Don't cha wanna be with your brothers
Marching with that angel band
And let go, just let go
Let go, just let it go
Oooh, and let go, let go
Let it go, and let go
Let it go.

Letting Go of Tonight Lyrics




Never forgot the time you made me feel alive
When death was on my mind
Or when you held onto me
When the world let me fall behind
You were love to me rather than just a word
A friend was all you were
And it changed my heart
Stood next to me through the storm
Felt the wounds and kept me warm
Something I had never seen before
And I thank you

Lie Down Lyrics




I lie down, I sleep
When I wake, sustain me
Outkast blast through deception, the tension, your mind collapse
Relapse, the stress of matter, when I shatter like glass
The never seen, the never heard style we bring forth
Can't ignore, the four, ripp'n straight when I take your title
Self, X it out like homicidal
It's vital, to make my flesh be suicidal
We tribal, sing with the Saints, let our spirits fly
Hold down the strong with the power Jah has given I
Break back the chains, release the squeeze off my veins
Empty box, hollow rocks, I knock you out your frame
Shallow grave marks the date, Oh' Babylon the great
Evil virus, be like Cyrus, trample down your gates
We're the ones, the chosen sons
Come out of dark into light, rather fight than run
We came to die for the reasons you put us down
Don't know when, could have then, what's the time, the time is now
I lie down, I sleep
When I wake, sustain me
Ready, attack, bout' to break you down fast like collision
Religion, take you from vision to flashback
In an instant, calculate precise precision
It's vivid, turn your intimidation to timid
I'm in it, count down to self-destruction
That's word to my mother when you suffer the repercussions
Clear the path, it's the wrath coming through
You ain't got what it takes to make me break
Because I'm harder than you
I'm harder than you
You ain't got what it takes

Light Your World Lyrics




Two doors down one rocking chair is rocking
She sits there all alone, her husband dead and gone
The best years of her life they spent together
He was always strong, but now she's on her own
And the telephone never rings
No one laughs, no one sings
It's quiet there
Does anyone care?
CHORUS:
Light your world
Let the love of God shine through
In the little things you do
Light your world
And though your light may be
Reaching only two or three
Light your world
A knocking at her door breaks the silence
She looks out to see a little boy from down the street
She cracks the door, surprised that he came over
Flowers in his hand like a little gentleman
He said, "I picked these just for you
I hope you like the color blue
Could I stay a while
I love to see you smile."
CHORUS
It only takes a little time
To show someone how much you care
It only takes a little time
To answer someone's biggest prayer
CHORUS

My soul, my soul
Watch over me
My Father, my Father
If it's possible let this pass from me
In your deepest plan I'll surely stand
It's not how I feel but oh do Thy will
I have asked You, I have asked You, I have asked You again
The hour is at hand for the Son of man
Lonely, was the hour
Lonely, you made it through
Hallelujah!
Lonely, was the hour
Lonely, you made it through

I have always found that your love
Would be enough for me
I have always found that your love
Would be enough for me D G It will be, it will be
It must happen this way
Everyday, everyday
I would teach and you would let me stay
All my friends this time have left my side
It had happened then to prove the words of other men
I will tell you, I will tell you, I will tell you again
You will see the Son of Man at the right hand
Lonely, was the hour
Lonely, you made it through
Hallelujah!
Lonely, was the hour
Lonely, you made it through

I have always found that your love
Would be enough for me

I have always found that your love
Would be enough for me
I have always found that your love
Would be enough for me D G It will be, it will be
It must happen this way
Everyday, everyday
I would teach and you would let me stay
All my friends this time have left my side
It had happened then to prove the words of other men
I will tell you, I will tell you, I will tell you again
You will see the Son of Man at the right hand
Lonely, was the hour
Lonely, you made it through
Hallelujah!
Lonely, was the hour
Lonely, you made it through
Hallelujah!
I have always found that your love
Would be enough for me
I have always found that your love
Would be enough for me
Lonely, was the hour
Lonely, you made it through
Hallelujah!
Lonely, was the hour
Lonely, you made it through
Hallelujah!
I have always found that your love
Would be enough for me
I have always found that your love
Would be enough for me

Love Lyrics




Love, is it all that you want?
Is it everything you've hoped for?
Love, is it more than the word
That you use when you look at her?
Love, it will push you around
It will make you a poor man
Change your picture of heaven
Love, it will make you a man
Then she'll make you a child again
Love, does it keep you awake?
Does it change everything you see?
Love, is it worth what you give?
Is it everything you need?
Love, is it all that you want?
Is it everything you've worked for?
Love, is it wearing you down?

Love As Love Lyrics




You know me
And my blinded eyes
I see your efforts as inconvenience
I need your interruptions
You know me
And my selfish heart
I see your kindness as always in my way
I need your arms to hold me
You who have loved
So perfectly
How can you take this abuse from me?
Teach me to know
Your love as love
You know me
And my wounded soul
I hear your blessings as manipulation
I need your prayers to heal me

Love Gets In The Way Lyrics




You heard my cry and You saw my need
With a Father's love You reached down for me
And like a child learning right from wrong
You keep teaching me and make Your ways my own
Sometimes I feel it's more than I can bear
Well, I slip and stumble but You're always there
CHORUS:
Lord, Your love gets in the way
Every time I fall
Every time I think there's no hope for me at all
When it seems my fate is to drown in my mistakes
Lord, Your love gets in the way
Some days go by without a fight
And some days I can't do anything right
I do my best just to stay on track
But it's one step forward and two steps back
And when I'm feeling like I can't go on
I lean on You Lord cause You're always strong
CHORUS
BRIDGE:
I start to wonder if I missed my call
The things I want to do I can't do at all
Your love keeps leading me right back to You
In spite of everything I do
CHORUS

Love Will Be Our Home Lyrics




If home is really where the heart is
Then home must be a place that we all share
For even withour difference our hearts are much the same
And where love is we come together there.
Wherever there is laughter ringing
Someone smiling, someone dreaming
We can live together there
Love will be our home.
Where there are children singinig
Where a tender heart is beating
We can live together there
Love will be our home
With love our hearts can be a family
And hope can bring this family face to face
And though we may be far apart our hearts can be as one
When love brings us together in one place.
Wherever there is laughter ringing
Someone smiling, someone dreaming
We can live together there
Love will be our home.
Where there are words of kindness spoken
Where a vow is never broken
We can live together there
Love will be our home
Love will, love will be our home
Love will, love will be our home
Love will, love will be our home
Love will, love will be our home

Magnify Lyrics




You are my hope
You are the fire
My truth
All of my life
All I desire
Is You
What a wonderful Saviour
What a beautiful truth
What a glorious God and King
Let creation sing
Magnify Your holy name
To worship in Your presence
Is the reason I was made
Magnify Your holy name
Let the angels cry and my soul reply
Magnify
Heart of my heart
Song of my song
My King
All that I have
All that I am
I bring
What a wonderful Saviour
What a beautiful truth
What a merciful mighty King
Let Your praises ring
And I sing...
Holy, holy is Your name
Worthy, worthy to be praised
Holy, holy is Your name
Let the angels cry and my soul reply
Magnify...

Masterpiece Conspiracy Lyrics




Evil eyes behind their smiles
You swallow it up when sincerity lies
Lock me up, label me "dangerous" files
Fear of the unknown, so scared of my style
Alert the press and address the states of emergency
We the crew you love to hate
First mistake, you were never ready
Dance with the dead, better be ten times more deadly
This is me, I'm always the same
Virus in the system, crash the mainframe
Uprise, now fall in line
Roll with the pack or get left behind
(Chorus:)
"It's a Masterpiece Conspiracy"
I'd rather hear it from you than be lied to
Call it what it is like the heathens do
Red lights of betrayal, deceived again
Exposed by the light, true colors ascend
Take down the regime, break the trend
Bumrushed by your peers and your so-called friends
Keep your people tight, watch your enemies close
Trust what you know, soon enough they'll choke
Where were you when we started this thing?
You weren't around, this ain't yours to claim
You'll never take what's been given to us
Wipe that smile off your face and that look of disgust
Uprise, now fall in line
Roll with the pack, or get left behind
(Chorus)
Liar, deceiver, betrayer, back stabber
(Chorus)

Miracles Lyrics




I never saw a man that walked on water
I never heard a voice could calm the sea
Raise the dead or feed five thousand
But in my heart I do believe
I was in a desperate situation
Drowning in a sea of my own sin
And it would take a miracle to save me
That's when I reached toward heaven
Felt someone touch me
I looked up and I saw Him
CHORUS:
And I believe in miracles
I'm a miracle myself
And I believe the good Lord hears
The ones who cry for help
And after all that He has done for me
I believe, I do believe in miracles
So many people look for signs and wonders
They miss the greatest miracle of all
Well it's the miracle of sweet salvation
That's when the God of heaven
Comes down to live inside of someone's heart
CHORUS
When it feels like my strength is almost gone
And my faith is weak
Lord, You're always there for me
You make it easy to believe
CHORUS

Miss Behavin Lyrics




No! She won't, she won't, she won't wait!
No! She won't, she won't, she won't wait!
No! She won't, she won't, she won't wait!
No! She won't, she won't, she won't!
Always what you meant, never what you said.
Passing over me like a book you've read.
But I let it fall, balling every wish.
Take my hands and eyes, but I beg you this:
Offer me one wish.
If it's her you want, this is what it takes...
If it's her you want, this is what it takes...
Let's get this over.
(Let's get this over.)
Discuss and deny something; simply just lie
(Let's get this over.)
And wait and see if she's something like me.
If you just open your eyes, you could get out of this,
But your such a success, you're just not built for it.
I never knew how much it takes to accept...
I never knew how much it takes
To accept that you're a fake.
If you just open your eyes, you could get out of this,
(If you just open your eyes...)
But your such a success, you're just not built for it.
(If you just open your eyes...)
Sometimes I think you just need some time.
Sometimes I think you just need some time.
Sometimes I think I need some to get along without.
To get along without...
(To get along without..)
Everyone's saying that they've got the answers.
(To get along without...)
Well hoping's deceiving, it spreads like a cancer.
To get along without...

My Jesus, I Love Thee Lyrics




My Jesus, I love Thee, I know Thou art mine;
For Thee all the follies of sin I resign;
My gracious Redeemer, my Savior art Thou;
If ever I love Thee, my Jesus, 'tis now.
I love Thee because Thou hast first loved me,
And purchased my pardon on Calvary's tree;
I love Thee for wearing the thorns on Thy brow;
(Oh my Saviour) If ever I love Thee, my Jesus, 'tis now.
It is now (if ever I love my Saviour, 'tis now etc)
It is now (if ever I love my Saviour, 'tis now)
In mansions of glory and endless delight,
I'll ever adore Thee in heaven so bright;
I'll sing with the glittering crown on my brow,
If ever I love Thee, my Jesus, 'tis now.

Never Lyrics




copyright Crystal Lewis, Bob Somma
Send forth the river
Of God within my heart
Let it wash over my soul
With the water of the word
Let the river rise so high
That I be caught up in it
Let it flow and with it bring
Life and healing
Set my sails to catch
Your Spirit in my life
Let the wind of Your love
Take me away
Over the ocean of forgiveness
Let me bathe in Your mercy, soak in Your grace
[Chorus]
No, No, No never
Never, no never
Jesus will never let me go
The Bible tells me so
No, No, No never
Never, no never
He promised I'd never be alone
This I know
Make me to be an open vessel
Fill me with your Spirit oh Lord
Restore in my a willingness to pour it out
Create in me an overflow of pure and perfect faith
[Chorus]
Bring me to a place of surrender
To the place of letting it all go
Your will is all I long for
Your plan for me my goal
This little one to Him belongs
In my weakness, He is strong

New Math Lyrics




Lost inside another argument
That's not what I meant
Equals compliment
And what I said just wasn't right
So I brought it to your attention
I'll be there when we finally make sense
When we give up our defense
Wouldn't want it anyway
Wouldn't want it anyway
These apologies are dentistry
If you're pulling teeth
Take a few from me
Cause I can't kiss my pride goodnight
Watch the sun go down
And still be right
I'll be there when we finally make sense
When we give up our defense
Wouldn't want it anyway
Wouldn't want it anyway
Wouldn't want it anyway
Wouldn't want it anyway
Wouldn't want it anyway
Wouldn't want it anyway
Wouldn't want it
I'll be there when we finally make sense
When we give up our defense
Wouldn't want it anyway
I'll be there when we finally make sense
When we give up our defense
Wouldn't want it anyway
Wouldn't want it anyway
Wouldn't want it

No, No, You're Not Afraid Lyrics




(Chuck Girard)
No, no you're not afraid, there's been some changes made
The consequences weighed, and.....hope is yours now
Your life is different now, you were so wayward then
But Jesus showed you how, to love your neighbor
I knew you long ago, when you walked the side roads
You were quite a photograph,
But you know you never wore a smile
No, no you're not alone, you've got the Holy Spirit
He's there to comfort you, now your heart is open
I knew you then and now, God changed your colors
You went from grey to white
Please try to never let Him down
No, no you're not afraid, .you've learned the joy of giving
You've learned the blessed truth, of Christian living
Of Christian living, of truly Christian living

Not Even Tired Lyrics




Circumstantial me, like a shaking weed
Blown about, pushed around
So it is again, on my face I land
Fallen down, crying out
Is there strength in me upon which my heart can call?
Is there anything at all?
Cause I'm not leaving
I'm not even tired yet
I'm still breathing
And I'm staying 'till I can't
In my strength I said
Until I was dead and gone that I would always stand
And weather every punch they land
Is there strength in me to fulfill these words?
And to stand although it hurts?
I have learned that this world will not change because of me
So I'll be the change I long to see

Not The Land Lyrics




So many miles behind
Still I drive with the pedal down
I was off the map hours back
It's beneath the seat, I think
It's with two pennies and a match
And something else, I can't remember
But in the time that it would take to fish it out
I'll be another mile gone
And I feel so wrong
Trying to feel right
In light of all the things I've passed
You'd think that I'd have learned
This is not the land was promised me
Even as far as my eyes can see
I'm so wound up, Lord, I can't even breathe
And I don't want words
I just want some peace
Some peace, some peace
It seems I've misplaced my faith
'Cause it's 11:12, nothing's changed
Well, nothing except the channel I'm afraid
And the number there
No, it's the same
Oh, this must be the Savior of the month
And what I must have
Where's the night gone?
'Cause I'm so tired and out of shape
You've gotta get me up
But I can't get up today
'Cause it's been so long
Since I've felt right
All the rote, rehearsal, proof
You'd think that I'd have learned
Break me, break me, break me
This is not the land was promised me
Gotta get out of bed, get something to read
And I gotta feed my brother, not my eyes
If not, then I'll be all I despise

O Sacred Head Now Wounded Lyrics




O sacred Head, now wounded, with grief and shame weighed down,
Now scornfully surrounded with thorns Thine only crown;
How pale Thou art with anguish, with sore abuse and scorn,
How does that visage languish, which once was bright as morn!
What Thou, my Lord, has suffered was all for sinners' gain;
Mine, mine was the transgression, but Thine the deadly pain,
Lo, here I fall, my Savior; 'tis I deserve Thy place;
Look on me with Thy favor, assist me with Thy grace.
What language shall I borrow to thank Thee, dearest Friend,
For this, Thy dying sorrow, Thy pity without end?
O make me Thine forever, and should I fainting be,
Lord, let me never, never outlive my love to Thee.

Only Fools Lyrics




copyright Brian Ray 2000
Only fools follow gold
Only wise men know
I'm no fool, you've changed my point of view
To be kind is quality that I richly desire
It is better to be poor than a liar
I no longer see things controlling me
You have spoken, I have listened
Only fools believe in only what they see
The wise are rich indeed
What a friend we have in Jesus
He hears all our cries
If you listen, you'll hear him crying too...
I no longer see things controlling me
You have spoken, I have listened
Only fools believe in only what they see
The wise are rich indeed

Only The Hands Lyrics




People came from everywhere, they heard a man was there, who could do miracles,
There was power in his hands, He was like no other man,
Could this really be the long awaited king,
When would he rise and take his throne, when would he make his kingdom known,
What was he waiting for, they just didn't know,
Only the hands that bled can bless,
Only the eyes filled with tenderness,
Only the heart that was broken for our sins,
Only the feet that walked that hill
Could love the ones who rejected him,
Only the one who died and is living still,
Only the hands that bled.
They had listened to his words, but few had really heard what he was telling them,
He said that he must die, and tried to tell them why,
Most of them just could not understand,
For this was the man who raised the dead, these were the hands that healed and feed,
He could have stopped the nails, but he just let them go,
Only the hands that bled can bless,
Only the eyes filled with tenderness,
Only the heart that was broken for our sins,
Only the feet that walked that hill
Could love the ones who rejected him,
Only the one who died and is living still,
Only the hands that bled.
Only the life he sacrificed could save us, Only Jesus
Only the hands that bled can bless,
Only the eyes filled with tenderness,
Only the heart that was broken for our sins,
Only the feet that walked that hill
Could love the ones who rejected him,
Only the one who died and is living still,
Only the hands that bled.
Twice
Only the heart that was broken for our sins,
Only the feet that walked that hill
Could love the ones who rejected him,
Only the one who died and is living still,
Only the hands that bled.

Open Letter Lyrics




Well, I'm finding the green cleared from my eyes
I am young and I am deep within the woods
What I'm discovering is far from the land I've heard tell of
But I'm not so vain to think that I'm the first
The first to see and to turn their eyes away
And I know that's not a popular approach
And I'm also learning the rules to the game I'm supposed to play
And they are proving to be far beyond reproach
And just 'cause we subscribe to different paths
Doesn't give you right to just sit and laugh
Can you still see from whence you've come
'Cause I won't bow down to a place so low
I think that you're wrong and I think you're wrong
I hope you don't mind me saying so
It's not as though this truck's been up on blocks for years in my front yard
Waiting for the fuel of you to make it go
Well, I guess it all depends on who you answer to
Cause I still believe it's Who not what you know
Why don't you write me a letter or call me on the phone
Tell me of all the big important things we'll do
I know you're understanding of what freedom means to me
But I bet you won't mention how you'll hide me till I belong to you
All of these things you say I lack
You can keep just give my innocence back
If it comes right down to yes or no
Just lock the door and on my way I'll go
Well don't call us
We will call you

Outkast Lyrics




I'm an outkast
But don't count me out
Underground dwellaz, roaming beneath the cellars
Failed us with this system, ain't living how they tell us
Hideaway place, it's safe, they raise a nation of hate, erase a man for his faith
They feed us lies, dress up my King in false disguise
Behind those eyes, soul of a Savior I recognize
No compromise, while the whole world becomes corrupt
Tonight we break the surface for lives, we coming up
Brother take my hand
Let's separate ourselves
Leave behind this place
Don't ever look back
Disgraced man, survivors of the wasteland, looking for a home of his own
No place to run, no place to hide
It's time for you to stand on your own
Militia, coalition, not of this world
Resistance, we the alliance
We freedom fighters, its honor we defend
We follow truth and never your trends
Brother take my hand
Let's separate ourselves
Leave behind this place
Don't ever look back
I'm an outkast
But don't count me out
Brace yourself like a man

Paradise (Single Mix) Lyrics




I awoke on a beautiful day
I stepped outside to see the sun shining down on me
I take a big deep breath and think
"There's no other place that I wanna be"
I look at the sky, the grass, and the trees
And all the neat things living in the sea
Ask myself, "How could this be?"
God made this so great for me
I wanna see just what it's like
To catch a glimpse of paradise
Can't even fathom the scene
Imagine all the possibilities
All the things we've never dreamed
Will be ours to touch and [sorry, can't figure it out]
Forget the riches in front of me
I have my faith, that all that I need
It's so easy I just want you to see
Shut your eyes and take a giant leap

People get ready
There's a train coming
Picking up passengers
From coast to coast
Faith is the key
Open the doors and board 'em
There's room for all
If you'll just love the Lord
There ain't no room
For the hopeless sinner
Who would hurt all mankind
Just to save his own
Have pity on those
Whose chances grow thinner
There's no hiding place
Around the kingdon's throne

Go, and find your place fo worship

victory comes through your adversity
go, find your place of worship

Playing With Fire Lyrics




Pardon me for saying so
But you look more pitiful
Than I had ever imagined
Despite perfect fashion
And your photographs depict you so differently
I always thought you would be
Some sort of match for me
So let's decide who can survive
Jumping feet and racing beats
Of hearts that don't ever slow
Then I'll write letters on white paper
Expressing my deep disappointment
Dripping where I stand
From my watery hands
Hoping to get past the open bedroom door
Where her clothes on the floor
Remind me of our conversation
The feeling of slight hesitation
To turn out the light
Fourteen days now (I'm not)
Since we started (I'm not hiding)
To complicate the situation (From this situation)
I'm not hiding (I'm not)
I'm just buying some time (I'm not hiding)
For us to find the back door (From this situation)
We will come out
When it's safe for us
When it's safe for us
When it's safe for us
Us
For us
All
There's nothing left to say (Don't believe me)
To excuse the way that I behaved (When I say it's over)
I still feel him
Gripping like a stain (By the time you're gone)
To this fabric (It's almost over)
Torn at every seam
Thrown away
I'm without regret
I will not forget
I'm without regret
I will not forget
Why should I take all the blame for all my mistakes? (I'm without regret)
You were there with every promise made to break (I will not forget)
When did you become the one without regret? (I'm without regret)
Kill me, burn me down, I swear I won't forget (I will not forget)
When did you become the one without regret (Kill me, kill me)
Kill me, burn me down, I swear I won't forget (Kill me, kill me)

Please Remember Me Lyrics




(rodney crowell, will jennings)
When all our tears have reached the sea,
A part of you will live in me,
Way down inside my heart.
The days keep coming without fail,
A new winds gonna find your sail,
And that's where your journey starts,
You'll find better love,
Strong as it ever was,
Deep as a river runs,
Warm as the morning sun.
Please remember me.
Just like the waves down by the shore,
We're gonna keep on coming back for more,
Cause we don't ever wanna stop.
Out in this brave new world you see,
Only the valleys and the peaks,
I can see you on the top,
You'll find better love,
Strong as it ever was,
Deep as a river runs,
Warm as the morning sun.
Please remember me.
Remember me when you're out walking,
When snow falls high outside your door,
Late at night when you're not sleeping,
And moonlight falls across your floor.
When I can't hurt you anymore,
You'll find better love,
Strong as it ever was,
Deep as a river runs,
Warm as the morning sun.
Please remember me.
Please remember me.

Portland Lyrics




You left for Portland this morning
I didn't stay to watch your airplane fly away
I didn't know that I would feel this way
I drove and listened to nothing
I never found a song that could quite fit the mood
I slept alone in the bed I share with you
And it's amazing just how still this place can be
It's amazing just how far away you seem
When you're only in Portland
You left for Portland this morning
And I've been counting the hours since you've gone
I didn't know a day could feel this long

Portrait Lyrics




You're not who they say you are
They made you the enemy
(CHRIST-Jah flesh; CHRIST-Light within; CHRIST- Beginning and the end)
Taken something so beautiful
Painted a new picture that makes me sick
(CHRIST-Witness; CHRIST-Living one; CHRIST-First and the last)
Feed our minds confusion
Sweeten the taste of pollution.
(CHRIST-Word life; CHRIST-Resurrect; CHRIST-Everlasting Jah)

Some people call you father
Maybe you could set me free
These people hate each other
But you've always been there for me
I refuse to be like you
Without life, caving in
(CHRIST-Jah flesh; CHRIST-Light within; CHRIST- Beginning and the end)
I surrender, giving up all that is me
Yielding to you
(CHRIST-Witness; CHRIST-Living one; CHRIST-First and the last)
Shape me in my brokeness
Empower me forever
(CHRIST-Word life; CHRIST-Resurrect; CHRIST-Everlasting Jah)

I know you will complete this work started in me
I need you more than ever now that I know who you are
I know you will complete this work started in me
I need you more than ever now that I've come so far

Some people might run and (think )
Some people bump to the faith
Whatever it takes for you
Praises is what I do
CHORUS
Praises go up
But blessings will come down
When your praise

Quiet Hour Lyrics




(Chuck Girard)
When the day is done and gone,
And shades of evening come along
I sit alone and think of you,
And thank you that I have this quiet hour
Alone with you
My quiet hour, to be with you
Melodies and symphonies,
And gentle breezes in the trees
I must confess that all of these,
Do nothing more than simply to remind me
How wonderful you are
How can I tell you, how wonderful you are
Oooooh la la la la, ooooh la la la la,
Ooooooooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooooooooh ooh ooh wah
I don't have to say a word,
And yet I know each word is heard
Makes no difference where I am,
You're there to join me in my quiet hour
Alone with you
I think of all you've done for me,
And how your love has made me free
How you gave so selflessly,
And I wonder how can I begin to thank you
For lovin' me
And my desire, my desire is to be with you

Remember Lyrics




copyright Crystal Lewis, Brian Ray
He's the man who'd bleed for me
Not making a sound or cry
He suffered as a guilty man
His innocence was the crime
While other said come down and save yourself
He was saving my life
Remember, I will remember
What He did for me
Remember, I will remember
How He died for me
Early sunday morning came
The stone had been rolled away
They stepped inside the empty grave
Alone in dismay
They were thinking he was gone
They were not believing
Death of the lamb did bring
Forgiveness and healing
Why do you seek Him here among the dead?
He is risen!
Remember, I will remember
What He did for me
Remember, I will remember
How He died for me
I know it's You who lives inside of me
I know it's true the peace of mind you bring to me
Your sacrifice has now set me free...i will always...
Remember, I will remember
What He did for me
Remember, I will remember
How He died for me

Remind Me Lyrics




Hebrews 10:36, James 1:2-4; 5:10, John 12:23-28,
Jeni Varnadeau, Bob Farrell
Some days my heart gets weary
'Cause I can't get past the strain
My eyes don't see the sunshine
'Cause I can't see past the rain
Somehow I must remember
That it all can work for good
I may not feel like smiling now
But at least I know I could
I'm in the middle of a tunnel
Can't see the light at the end
So tell me that the struggle's worth the gain
Remind me that this tarnished heart will turn to gold one day
Remind me how your love can heal the pain
Remind me you're the artist that forms a masterpiece from clay
Remind me everything will be okay
Remind me
There's not a brilliant diamond
That has not come through the fire
And a mother's tears of labor
Come before a joyful child
And you'll never see a harvest
Unless the seeds have died
Like the broken body of your son
Is the death that brought me life
The darkness on that dismal day
Brought light in the end
You proved that the struggle's worth the gain
The bitter and the sweet are a part of life
The suffering's worth it all if it brings me to your side
I want to carry my own cross and make the sacrifice
Abundant life will be the joy and You will be the prize

Return To Your First Love Lyrics




(Chuck Girard)
You say it's different now, then how it was before
You do your best, but you don't feel it anymore
What happened to the days when your life just seemed to flow
Miracles were happening wherever you would go
You tried so hard it seems to do the righteous thing
But oh, the trials that came and the shadows it would bring
You went to meetings and you'd be the first to pray
You even spoke a prophecy, was only yesterday
But something's wrong, something's wrong with you
Though you tried your best, the Lord just didn't bless
You're wondrin' what to do
Return to your first love, put Jesus first again
The love in your heart you had when you first started
Could be there again
Return to your first love
You say you told your friends the things they're doin' wrong
You had a leading, yes, you felt it oh so strong
They looked so hurt I guess they didn't understand
Since then your counseling, has not been in demand
You tried to give advice, but found you were ignored
But even though they scoffed, you still said
"Praise the Lord anyway'
And you thought Christians were to be of one accord
Is there a dull edge on that double-edged sword?
No, no something's wrong, something's wrong with you
Though you tried your best, the Lord just didn't bless
You're wondrin' what to do
Return to your first love, put Jesus first again
The love in your heart you had when you first started
Could be there again
Return to your first love
Return to your first love
Do do dn doo do do
Do do dn doo do do

Returning The Smile You Had From The Start Lyrics




You wanted to know us
If it was for the pain that its caused us
For the lies, such a white lie
Don't know what it was to deserve this
As simple as I can
I'll tell you the difference
Between a pencil and a pen
And where it will leave us
Now as your body lets you die
And I sit here still alive
In my memory I wrote you down in ink
I never wanted to erase your story
Even with the tragedy it brings
The fluid in your lungs
That tells you you're losing
Stop breathing
The medicine that comes
Will fix you, will help you
But takes you from conscious to sleep
Place my hands to face and weep
In my memory I wrote you down in ink
I never wanted to erase your story
Even with the tragedy it brings
Smiling, beautiful
Something torn from my hands
I'm not ready for you to die
[screaming]
This day will end
With the lies complete
My closest friend
Here in front of me
[screaming]
You wanted to know us
If it was for the pain that its caused us
For the lies, such a poor thing
Don't know what it was to deserve this

Revolution Lyrics




Peace takes a taxi to the underground.
I want to love the world but I don't know how.
I'll blame it on the d.j. playing all the fast songs- ain't spinning anything that I can sing along.
So if you know the words try to sing along.
When you get the beat, grab a hammer, bang a gong.
Cause you don't got to fight or make yourself belong to be a revolution.
If you wanna learn to play the "rock guitar."
Throw down your guns, you're gonna be a star.
You gotta begin with who you know you are to be a revolution.
Cause the time is right to cross that line to let love find a way.
If you know the words then try to sing along.
When you get the beat grab a hammer, bang a gong.
Cause you don't got to fight or make yourself belong to be a revolution.
It's all right, to be a revolution, it's all right yeah.
So if you know the words then try to sing along.
When you get the beat, grab a hammer, bang a gong.
Cause you don't got to fight or make yourself belong to be a revolution.
If you know the words then try to sing along.
And when you get the beat grab a hammer, bang a gong.
Cause you don't got to fight or make yourself belong to be a revolution.
If you know the words then try to sing along.
And when you get the beat grab a hammer, bang a gong.
Cause you don't got to fight or make yourself belong to be a revolution.

Ridiculous Lyrics




Skillfully tested, rhythmically possessed with rhymes
And when it was time, Jah gave me the mic after he blessed it
He said share the loving, prepare them for the Second Coming
Beware of the false prophets, because they got my people bugg'n
Put on the full armor, cause you know these fools they're gonna wanna
Talk behind your back, but stay away from the drama
You know that I'm gonna keep you safe inside the palm of my hand
Cause you the man and that's word to your mama
So give it to 'em, it's themselves that they're fool'n
Gotta head of the game too quick, what they lack is ol' school'n
You know who's who, whether or not I'm talking to your crew
It's up to you to keep it true, nuff respect due.
(Chorus 2x:)
Dem test me crew, but dem can't get with this
Dem all the same, talking wickedness (nonsense - 2nd time)
Your styles been played, and I'm already sick of it
Them so ridiculous, them so ridiculous.
Original Rude Boy, we bring the styles
Ain't heard this in a while, check the stats, review my profile
They dime a dozen, can't understand why all the fuss'n
Known for talking loud but they really saying nothing
With every word you poison my mental concept
Negative be the topic, somebody's got to stop it
And clear your mind and continue to come alive
And he love, we love, bring it back, come, rewind.
(Chorus)
To all my peoples that be keeping it real
They know the time and they know the deal
To all my peoples that are down with this crew
We keep it live cause this one's for you

Right Here Lyrics




Psalm 16:11; Matthew 1:23; 28:20
There are days I can't compete with what's in front of my eyes Lock the
Door, unplug the phone, pull up my covers and hide But what is that voice
I hear, so familiar and clear?
Chasing away these thoughts like a bad dream-calming my doubts and my fears
When you're here
When you chase away the darkness
When you're near, seems all my sadness disappears
'Cause you're right here
Pull up the shades, start the day, I feel your love shining through
You give me peace I can't explain
It's like my heart became new
I melt when you whisper my name, so familiar and clear
You are the love and the life that sustains me. There's nothing like
Having you near
I ain't walking alone. Your presence fills me and joy overflows
I ain't feeling low. You are the One that I need to know

Rock N Roll Preacher Lyrics




(Chuck Girard)
When I was young my life was rock 'n' roll music
Just diggin' the wonderful sound
I'd get home from school and when I'd finished my lessons
I'd listen to music 'til the sun came around
I'd sit by the hour and pound my old piano
Pick out the chords to the songs
I'd heard on the air and on American Bandstand
Just learnin' the words and then singin' along
But who'd ever thought I'd be a rock 'n' roll preacher
'Stead of just singin' the blues
Who'd ever thought I'd be a rock 'n' roll preacher
Singin' my song so you can hear the good news
INSTRUMENTAL
Now that I'm free my heart is filled with the gladness
That comes when a life has been changed
The song I now sing has a different ring
The lyrics have meaning, but the tune is the same
But I want you to know I still love rock 'n' roll music
But now I have something to say
I'll sing you my song and maybe you'll sing along
And we'll make us a noise they'll hear in Heavenly places
Who'd ever thought I'd be a rock 'n' roll preacher
'Stead of just singin' the blues
Who'd ever thought I'd be a rock 'n' roll preacher
Singing my song so you can hear the good news

Rock The Party (Off The Hook) Lyrics




We came here to rock this jam
Spread His love is the master of plan
Let this light ignite like a star
Everybody in the party knows who we are
You gotta get down, dance around, floss your style
P.O.D., guarantee, make it worth your while
Bad vibes, leave 'em at the door
Soulcheck'n, housewreck'n, keep 'em begg'n for more
We came to rock the party all night long
So party people won't ya sing that song
We came to rock the party all night long
And keep it live till the break of dawn
Hey DJ won't ya play that song
And we'll keep dancing till the break of dawn
Keep it live like the way it should
Ain't nobody gett'n crazy so you know it's all good
B-boys, fly-girls one time
Friend of yours is a friend of mine
Don't brother stopping till this jam is through
If you been here before then you know how we do
We came to rock the party all night long
So party people won't ya sing that song
We came to rock the party all night long
And keep it live till the break of dawn
We got to play what we feel
Then I can say I came real
Don't wanna be caught mess'n around
Cuz a party ain't a party when it gets shut down
Off the hook, with the cutz, that's right
Feel'n loose cuz it sounds so tight
Rock da spot till the very end
Make sure that you're there when we do it again
We came to rock the party all night long
So party people won't ya sing that song
We came to rock the party all night long
And keep it live till the break of dawn

Running From The Sun Lyrics




Some things seem too easy
Because we make them so hard
"thanks for the branch but hold on
Think I can kick this quicksand yet"
Faith is a stepstool that I think I can jump
CHORUS:
And I'm running from the sun again
It keeps finding me, it keeps finding me
And dawn is breaking in my back again
And I'm growing tired, I'm growing tired
I'd like to watch myself on TV
Without playing the part
I'm Dr. Jekyll and I am Mr. Hyde
I've got Jesus on my skin and
Sometimes someone else inside
I'm not Bruce Wayne so one of us is gonna have to die
CHORUS
BRIDGE:
I can't love, I can't live
I can't take, I can't give
I can't move or step back
I can't fill what I lack
I can't feel, I can't touch
Can't even walk without a crutch
And I think I use the word "I" too much
CHORUS:
And I'm running from the sun again
It keeps finding me, it keeps finding me
And dawn is breaking in my back again
It keeps finding me, it keeps finding me
And I'm running from the sun again
It keeps finding me, it keeps finding me
Dawn is breaking in my back again
And I'm growing tired, I'm growing tired

Satellite Lyrics




I wonder how clear it must look from there to here
No obstruction, this selfish corruption
All in this atmosphere
No fear, less tears, only time to catch my breath
I fail to inhale
Your love constricts my chest
Confusion blinded me, mental and physically
And it's because of you that now I can see
So now can I run? I follow the Son and ride on to Zion
And dance this last song of freedom
But only time will tell, if it's truly for real
Can't change your mind, all I know this is what I feel
Whether I'm wrong or right, please keep my life in sight
And never take you eyes off me
(Chorus:)
As I look up to the sky today
Well I can see you looking down on me
It brings a smile to my face again
Satellite
It's truly one of a kind, like star shine, beyond night time, are you there
My eyes stare to find, just what's behind this blind notion of mine, is it genuine
Cause sometimes, it plays tricks with my mind, some call it asinine
But it's like love or hate, now is that real or fake?
Cause it's a real thin line, but that's your choice to make
The question at hand, help me understand, is this your plan?
I think I can, can I think, then I think I can
Because I won't break (nah), and I won't shake (nah)
With lifted hands to this Man (Jah), I'll stand in faith
I'll make it through, my trust in you
Close my eyes, make a wish, kiss the sky
Hey there...I see you
(Chorus)

Save The Humans Lyrics




Save the humans, they're in distress
Save the humans, we're an awful mess
Let me tell you baby we got problems
As a species we're unfit to solve 'em
We can purify the oily seas
We can empathize with manatees
Even chit-chat with chimpanzees
But we're still dyin' from a sin disease
We're in the water and the water's hot
Yeah, we need somethin' that we ain't got
OooooOOOOOO let's go
Whoaa whoaa Come and rescue me
Whoaa whoaa Gimme what I need
Whoaa whoaa We're a dying breed
One hope baby only God can save the humans now
Sink the whaling ships save the whales
Kick out the French save the baby snails
Stop the interstellar radiation
But we can never be our own salvation
We need somebody who can take control
We need somebody who can save our souls
OooooOOOOOO let's go
Save the humans, save the humans
Save the humans, save the humans
Save the humans, save the humans
Save the humans, God save the humans!
Whoaa whoaa Come and rescue me
Whoaa whoaa From my humanity
Whoaa whoaa We're a dying breed
One hope baby only God can save the humans now
Save The Humans...

Scarlet Lyrics




If I was your love I would want only you.
I'd lay at this alter, give all I am, all that is true.
And this old scarlet letter won't keep me from holding you.
There is nothing you can do.
Nothing you do.
For love I have scaled the face of these kingdom walls.
So let down your hair, let our kiss make fools of them all.
And this old scarlet letter won't keep me from holding you.
And there is nothing you can do.
Nothing you do.
And this old scarlet letter won't keep me from holding you.
And there is nothing you can do.
No there is nothing you can do.
No there is nothing you can do.

Seekers Of Your Heart Lyrics




Until we give You first play
Until we let You begin
To fill us with your spirit
Renew us from within
Nothing matters
Nothing's gained
Without your Holy presence
Our lives are lived in vain
Chorus
Lord we want to know You
Live our lives to show You
All the love we owe You
We're seekers of your heart
Because your heart was broken
Because You saw the need
Because You gave so freely
Because of Calvary
We can now be
Called your own
Complete creations
Filled with You alone

Set Your Eyes To Zion Lyrics




Hey Mr. Deadman! Rejoice!
Back in the day when man he paved the way
Fell in temptation, sin spread through the nation
Lead me salvation, and pierce these palms of holy hands
Who is the son of man? take me to the promised land
Where I and I is free, Jah set my mind at ease
Will I stay cool in the shade even at 96 degrees?
You must believe and plant this seed of wisdom
Stick to the track and don't be trapped by Babylon
Set your eyes to Zion
Jah Jah people ride on
Set your eyes to Zion
Jah Jah people ride on
Forgive them Lord, for they not know
That what they do, people blame it on you
Can't understand why dem so mad
Dem heart get cold, empty with no soul
But I've begun to search for One
Giver of life, I and I recognize
To be with you, forever I'll be with you
In paradise, Zion I set my eyes
Set your eyes to Zion
Jah Jah people ride on
Set your eyes to Zion
Jah Jah people ride on
We set our eyes to Zion

She Lyrics




She is not paper thin
She is not silent, nameless, happy
She is not on your wall
She is not near you, perfect, naked
She is a human being
She is my reason why
She is my very image
She is my child
She is not for your eyes
Not for your liking, purpose, pleasure
She is not usable
She is not pictures, image, money
You make her something else

Short of Daybreak Lyrics




Another year has gone by
Time just took it away
Friends have changed
Clear skies watched over us
But we've had our share of rain
Romance still sits untouched
By the water she waits patiently
Hoping I'll take her home someday
To think I lost her
That my dreams were her only place
But for her I've learned to wait
A smile remains on my face knowing
God hold her at night
Letting her know I'm on my way
So I'll hold my head high
For love may be a day
I can't say
But tomorrow awaits
Bringing me closer to you

Shout Lyrics




I'm gonna try and talk to you
Have a conversation
In a language that breaks through
Any explanation
Wanna tell you 'bout the way I feel
But nothing says it better than to show it's real
Shout
Shout it out
Shout it out loud
My actions will be heard
Even louder than my words
Gonna shut my mouth and
Shout
Bite my lip and hold my tongue
But I can't keep quiet
Making noise until I'm numb
But you just won't buy it
Let me tell you 'bout the love I found
It's something you do not just talk about
Shout
Out loud...
Come on now
Shout
Shout it out
Shout it out loud
In everything I do
I wanna be living proof
Without one single sound

Shout To The Lord Lyrics




Shout to the Lord, all the earth,
Let us sing

Mountains bow down and the seas will roar
At the sound of Your name.
I sing for joy at the work of Your hands,
Forever I'll love You, forever I'll stand,
Nothing compares to the promise I have in You.

Lord, there is none like You;
All of my days
I want to praise
The wonders of Your mighty love.
My comfort, my shelter,
Tower of refuge and strength;
Let every breath, all that I am
Never cease to worship You.
Shout to the Lord, all the earth,

Power and majesty, praise to the King;
Mountains bow down and the seas will roar
At the sound of Your name.

Forever I'll love You, forever I'll stand,
Nothing compares to the promise I have in You.
Shout to the Lord, all the earth,

Silence Lyrics




Take, take till there's nothing, nothing to turn to.
Nothing when you get through.
Won't you break, scatter pieces of all I've been.
Bowing to all I've been running to.
Where are you?
Where are you?
Did you leave me unbreakable?
Leave me frozen?
I've never felt so cold.
I thought you were silent.
And I thought you left me for the wreckage and the waste.
On an empty beach of faith.
Was it true?
Cause I, I got a question, I got a question- Where are you?
Scream, deeper I wanna scream.
I want you to hear me, I want you to find me.
Cause I, I want to believe but all I pray is wrong and all I claim is gone.
And I, I got a question, I got a question- Where are you?

Slow Down Lyrics




(Chuck Girard)
In the midst of my confusion
In the time of desperate need
When I am thinking not too clearly
A gentle voice does intercede
Slow down, slow down, be still
Be still and wait, on the Spirit of the Lord
Slow down and hear His voice
And know that He is God
In the time of tribulation
When I'm feeling so unsure
When things are pressing in about me
Comes a gentle voice so still, so pure
Slow down, slow down, be still
Be still and wait, on the Spirit of the Lord
Slow down and hear His voice
And know that He is God
And know that He is God

So Thankful Lyrics




(Song for Eastern Morning)
(Chuck Girard)
We're so thankful that you died on the cross, Lord
We're so thankful that you gave your life for us
Though it hurts us that you had to suffer
The pain and the shame and all the sorrow
Though were sad you had to suffer it at all
We're so thankful that you did it anyhow
We're so thankful that you rose from the dead, Lord
We're so thankful that you've risen and you live
We're so thankful that you really did it
And now we too can live
We can live with you forever, we can live
And we're just so thankful that you did it Lord, that you did
We're so thankful that You're livin' in our hearts
We're so thankful that you're livin' right inside, Lord
We're so glad to know that you're what you said
And you're what you claimed to be
Now, we can put our faith in victory and we know you're real
And we're just so thankful that you're Jesus and that you're real
We're so thankful that you gave your life for us
We're so thankful that you live and you have risen, Lord
We're so thankful that you're Jesus and that you're real

Solid Rock Lyrics




On Christ the solid rock I stand
All other ground is sinking sand
On Christ the solid rock I stand
All other ground is sinking sand
My hope is built on nothing less
Than His righteousness alone
And so I'll stand faultless
Before the throne
When all around my soul gives way
I will lean on Jesus' name
When darkness tries to fill my days
I've got His unchanging grace
Cos' at the cross He said my name
And took my place
When everything comes crumbling down
In Him alone I will be found
My hope is built on nothing less...

Someone To Believe Lyrics




Sometimes I feel that I'm the only one in a crowded room
I talk you talk we'll talk but no one listens
And sometimes I just leave well
Maybe you'll notice but probably not
I'd just like to take you aside and make you look at me
Really look at me
CHORUS:
Could I tell you that I'm crazy
Would you buy into my lies
If I told the truth as far as I knew
Could you look in my eyes and seeee
Someone you could believe in
Could you see someone you could call a friend
Two thousand years a man died and He's the only One
Who really knows how I feel (knows how I feel)
Jesus knew loneliness too as He hung on a cross despised
His closest friends said they didn't even know Him
Makes me wonder how much they really did
At least I've got you to believe in me
Cause we both believe in Him
CHORUS

La dee di di di di di

He was a man of sorrows
When I look in the mirror
That's what I see

But His looovvveee is what's accepting me

What does it matter for me to say I knew you when?
I know you now and you know I knew you then
I'd say you're different now and yes, your life has changed
Something's surely different, your whole thinking's re-arranged
But I just can't accept,
You say you owe it all to somethin' supernatural
I used to know you when you'd go from bar to bar
Lookin' for a thrill with some potential movie star
To take her home with you and try to get it on
But now you tell me that this type of life is gone
But I just can't accept,
You say you owe it all to somethin' supernatural
I get a feelin' that you're really on the level
But I just cannot believe that it could happen to you
This talk of Jesus sounds so soft and sentimental
And I just cannot believe that it is really, really true
But yet I see that you no longer are a cussin'
You don't read Playboy and you shun the liquor store
And though you're still my friend, I don't know how to treat you
In many ways you're just no fun anymore
But I just can't accept,
You say you owe it all to somethin' supernatural
When you explain it to me, you know I feel the tension
'Cause much of what you say is just beyond my comprehension
Still I'm beginning to feel
The pull of somethin' supernatural

Something Beautiful Lyrics




If you put your arms around me, could it change the way I feel.
I guess I let myself believe that the outside might just bleed it's way in.
Maybe stir the sleeping past lying under glass.
Waiting for the kiss that breaks this awful spell.
Pull me out of this lonely cell.
Close my eyes and hold my heart.
Cover me and make me something.
Change this something normal into something beautiful.
What I get from my reflection isn't what I thought I'd see.
Give me reason to believe you'd never keep me incomplete.
Will you untie this loss of mine, it easily defines me.
Do you see it on my face.
That all I can think about is how long I've been waiting to feel you move me.
Close my eyes and hold my heart.
Cover me and make me something.
Change this something normal into something beautiful...
And I'm still fighting for the world to break these chains.
And I still pray when I look in your eyes.
You stare right back down into something beautiful.
Close my eyes and hold my heart.
Cover me and make me something.
Change this something normal into something beautiful...

Sometimes Alleluia Lyrics




(Chuck Girard)
CHORUS:
SOMETIMES ALLELUIA,
SOMETIMES PRAISE THE LORD
SOMETIMES GENTLY SINGING,
OUR HEARTS IN ONE ACCORD
Oh let us lift our voices,
Look toward the sky and start to sing
Oh let us now return His love,
Just let our voices ring
Oh let us feel His presence,
Let the sound of praises fill the air
Oh let us sing the song of Jesus' love,
To people everywhere.
CHORUS
Oh let our joy be unconfined,
Let us sing with freedom unrestrained
Let's take this feeling that we're feeling now,
Outside these walls and let it rain.
Oh let the Spirit overflow,
As we are filled from head to toe.
We love you Father, Son and Holy Ghost,
And we want this world to know.
CHORUS

Song And Dance Lyrics




I'm standing at a mirror
I don't know who I'm looking at
This part I play that I didn't write
Have I gone too far to come back
I wish you could see the real me
More than just this song and dance
But that's all you saw to begin with
So that's what I gave you at last
CHORUS:
I'm empty as a desert well
But I built the walls of this mirrored cell
It was a spiraled game of show and tell
And you beat me every time
(every time)
I feel as easy to see through
As a candidate for political office in DC
Yet my loneliness is carefully hidden
Though I'm dying to let it be seen yeah-e-yeah
CHORUS(2x)
BRIDGE:
Tear me down
See me naked
This tired facade
Is wearin thin yeah
It's wearin thin
Yeah-e-yeah-e-yeah-e-yeah
Wwhhoo-hhhooo hhhoooo-yyeeaahh
Wwhhoo-hhhooo hhhoooo-yyeeaahhh
Wwhhoo-hhhhhhhhoooooooo
CHORUS
I'm empty (as a desert well)
I'm empty (as a desert well)
I'm empttyyy (as a desert well)
I'm empty (as a desert well)

Soundtrack To A Revolution Lyrics




No longer will I just sit back as this world's slowly dying
I'm not done having fun, I'm no good at goodbye
Today's the day we can't delay, we fight to save those that hate
The time is right, we can't deny the voice inside to rise above
Chorus:
This is a call to arms, prepare for war
This is a battle charge, prepare for war
We'll still hold the fort, prepare for war
This is a call to arms
No one is safe, their all asleep and the darkness creeps in
No longer will I be the one that this world marks for failure
Today's the day we can't delay, we fight to save those that hate
The time is right, we can't deny the voice inside to rise above
Chorus
This is a call to arms, prepare for war
This is a battle charge, prepare for war
We'll still hold the fort, prepare for war
This is a call to arms
This is a call to arms

Staircase Lyrics




What do you say to my brother
My friend, then you've said that same thing to me
It's no big deal, she's just my sister
No need to compromise on your crude philosophy
My friend did you know you are my brother
And I know that what you say is what you've heard
I'm where and wearying and I'm worn
I scream until I cannot hear a word
But somehow in this life there is a peace that comes on me
But I throw conviction to the wind and set my anger free
And how can I expect this house to stand on the mud I've laid
'cause I'm tripping, falling on myself and the staircase that I've made
And where's the honor in that, where's the honor in that
C'mon brother can you tell me
Where's the honor in that, where's the honor in that
I can hear my sister ask me
"If this was a perfect world
Would brothers and sisters still act that way?
'Cause if this is righteousness
I'll settle for mediocrity any day."
I guess my tongue of pride has had it say
Why do I get so defensive anyway
Dumb pride, dumb luck, which is the cause
And I wonder which of these sustains a greater loss
But somehow in this life there is a peace that comes on me
But we throw conviction to the wind and set this anger free
And how can we expect this house to stand on the mud we've laid
We're tripping, falling on ourselves and the staircase that we've made
Oh who am I, and what is my family?
That days to come have even held a place for me
Can you hear me saying I will build a house for you
And you say 'First look to your neighbor's house.
There is much work to do.' If not then...

Staircase Intro Lyrics




"Basically what this song's about...
This is like one righteous anger song that's made it through the cut of all my tunes that I've ever written. This is like the one that I let stay and live. And, and the reason being is just because... I have a real problem with... Christians, especially, who consider themselves better or higher than other people. And, the way I mean that, mostly, is like... if I'll be in a McDonald's or just anyplace you go and have food where people are there doing service, like serving you... When people just totally talk down to the help, and down even look up at them, and never say 'Thank you.' And never acknowledge that they're actually people who have lives who are there working and trying to do a good job, and are under pressure, just like they are in their jobs. And just, kind of, disregard for human feelings altogether. It just, it annoys me. But then, through writing this song, I realized all the ways that I do that. And just, that, as Christians, how do we ever expect... if we're really going to affect people, we need to be doing it in all the little areas when we're not on stage in front of an audience. So that's what this song's about. It's called "Staircase"."

Stand Lyrics




With visible breath, I'm calling your name
With visible tracks, I'm finding my way
With a sorrowful heart, I honor this pain
And offer these tears to the rain
In a moment of truth at the top of the hill
I open my arms and let go of my will
And stand with my face to the wind
With the storm beating down on this sacred ground
If I stand for the grace that I've known
For what I believe
Then I won't stand alone
No I won't stand alone
There's a new pair of eyes to embrace all I see
A new peace of mind and it comes quietly
There's a joy in my heart that you've given to me
And I offer this soul's melody
So I beat on my chest till my song has been sung
And I cry like a wolf at the top of my lungs
And stand with my face to the wind
With the storm beating down on this sacred ground
If I stand for the grace that I've known
For what I believe
Then I won't stand alone
No I won't stand alone
When the thundering voices of doubt try to shake my faith, oh
I'll be listening from inside out and I won't be afraid to
Stand with my face to the wind
With the storm beating down on this sacred ground
If I stand for the grace that I've known
For what I believe
Then I won't stand alone
No I won't stand...I won't stand alone

Stupid Kid Lyrics




I think this place is swell,
There's much familiar here.
I get my laundry done
And I get home-cooked meals.
And when I'm feeling tired,
I can turn off all the lights,
Ignore the knocking on the door,
Pretend I'm not alive.
But, Daddy, it's Saturday,
And I don't want to go outside
And mow the grass today.
So, would you love me just as much
If I was just your stupid kid
So, would you love me just as much
If I was just your stupid kid
They tell me that I'm bright
Sometimes I think they're right
But I guess I'll never know
'Cause I won't go outside
Some days it's just so hot
And others it's so cold
Too much exposure to the sun
Would just make me look old
Well, isn't this Saturday?
It sure feels like Saturday.
So, wake me Saturday.
Daddy, it's Saturday.
And my mind wanders off
To things I've never seen,
Are these walls higher than the cost of opportunity?
I'm too big for my bed,
And I've outgrown my shoes.
But my fear of leaving
Is the one thing I just can't lose.

Suddenly Lyrics




Suddenly
by Fred Hammond
Written by Fred Hammond, Kim rutherford, and Noel Hall
Album: Christmas... Just Remember
Verse I
Out of all the miracles
None would ever compare
To that glorious day
Seeing the need of man
God devised a plan
To rescue right way
While the veil stood between
Earth and Heaven
He found a way
To bring us closer
Now the world would see
Just how to be made free
Oh everybody help me say...
Chorus I
Suddenly
From the dark
Came a light that would enver dim
Now the Father's favor
Would bring good will to man
Can't you see
His only Son
Peace and joy,
Yes He's the One
The hope of the earth
Through the Savior's birth
Verse II
Now a star would guide them all
To see what God has done
Through a child
Although Kings brought silver and gold
They just didn't know
He would change all life
And that He would reign forever
His love now He shows
So the world would know
Oh everybody help me say...
Chorus II
Suddenly
From the dark
Came a light
That would never dim
Now the Father's favor
Brings good will to man
Bridge
There He laid, lays in a manger
There was no place for the Savior, Oooh
He humbled Himself
Forsaking His wealth
My Lord decided to be
In the flesh just like me
And with this in mind
He came for my life
Chorus III
Can't you see
His only Son
Peace and joy
Yes He's the One
The hope of the earth
Through the Savior's,
Savior's birth
Vamp
The hope of the earth,
Through the Savior's
Savior's birth
(Repeat)
Through the Savior's birth

Supernatural Lyrics




(Marcus Hummon - Mark Prentice)
I'm a bee charmer for you baby
Get you honey if you've got the taste
A little sting now and then that won't bother me
Don't mind no queen bee buzzin' round my face.
I'm a bee charmer for you, baby
Get you honey if you've got the taste
A little sting now and then it will not bother me, no, no
Don't mind no queen bee buzzin' round my face, no.
Go with you any way the wind blows
Straight through the fire into the unknown
Follow my feelings 'cause I know they're supernatural.
I'm a snake handler from the mountains
Sing them rattlers off to sleep
And if my baby needs healing, uh, huh
No fever too hot no cut too deep, no, no, no.
Go with you any way the wind blows
Straight through the fire into the unknown
Follow my feelings 'cause I know they're supernatural.
Supernatural.
I'm a rainmaker in the desert
Dance and coax those clouds to cry
Put the bloom back in the meadow
Flood the faith back into your eyes.
Go with you any way the wind blows
Straight through the fire into the unknown
Follow my feelings 'cause I know they're supernatural...

Taboo Lyrics




For the sake of argument
Say Jerry Springer were the president
'No inhibitions' the national theme
There'd still be one thing making Donahue scream
Taboo we've come to the last
Taboo there's an audible gasp
When you claim there's a God who's objectively true
It's Taboo
Party on let freedom ring
For the shock jobs and the gangsta kings
But mention Jesus in the public square
The tables turn and the the tempers flare
Taboo that's a no can do
Taboo the ACLU
Say when we sneeze could we please drop the God Bless You
It's Taboo
God isn't really dead
He's under house arrest
Will amnesty protest?
No I don't think so
I could kiss a kangaroo
Sick my spitz on your shih tzu
No one blinks at anything I do
Until I claim the resurrection is true
Taboo I'm breaking the last
Taboo how about you
Do you claim Jesus name as the ultimate truth?
Taboo

Takin' In The Air Lyrics




PSALM 65:4-66:12; 118:5; 149:1-5
Rory Partin, Jeni Varnadeau, Jimmie Lee Sloas
To Stephanie
Like a child in bed
In a room with no light
I've been hidden in blankets
That cover my eyes
Afraid to move
Scared of what I might see
But I'm tired of dwelling in the darkness of me
This time I'll break out of the night
This time I'll let faith be my sight
It's time. I'm running into the light
I'm takin' in the air outside
I'm breathin' in the breathe of life
'Cause I finally found a place that free
And I'm dancing on a mountain top
And I don't ever wanna stop
'Til everybody's dancing here with me- hey, yea
I used to be
Like so many I know
Painting by numbers
And stuck in a mold
Fearful of failure
And what others may think
But now I've found the freedom to be who I'm meant to be
It's time to stay out of my night
It's time to keep faith as my sight
This time I'm living in the light
It's time to come out of the night
It's time to let faith be your sight
This time, we'll be dancing in the light

Tell Me Who Lyrics




Tell me who, who, who
Can do the things You do
Ain't nobody now
Ain't nobody never
Tell me who put the sun and stars in place
Who-put the outer into space
Who-put a nose on every face
Who-put a wave on every sea
Who-put the breath in you and me
Who-put the sting in the bumblebee
Tell me who-put the warm in the fire's glow
Who-put the cold in the winter snow
Who-put the wet in H2O
Who-put the bang in the thundercloud
Who-put the groundhog in the ground
Who-put the milk in the farmer's cow

The Edge Of Water Lyrics




Have you ever been haunted the way I've been by you.
And have you ever felt the measure of the days that I've spent waiting, pining for you.
I can't see the sun for the daylight.
I can't feel your breath for the wind.
I don't wanna step from these shadows, till you're comin back again.
I've dammed the emotions to keep my lanterns lit.
I'm shaken by this longing that courses through my veins.
In my mind I can't make sense of it.
I can't see the sun for the daylight.
I can't feel your breath for the wind.
I get so used to these shadows.
Are you comin back again?
Do we give up this search and turn out the light?
And give up this holy ghost that rattles through the night?
I can't see the sun for the daylight.
I can't feel your breath for the wind.
I don't wanna step from these shadows, till you're comin back again.
I can't see the sun for the daylight.
I can't feel your breath for the wind.
I get so used to these shadows.
Will you chase away these shadows, when you come back again?
When you come back again? (7x)

The Eleventh Hour Lyrics




Trace the shape of my heart, till it becomes more familiar to your eyes.
I've been lost without you, cold without your love.
It's taken days and nights to make me realize.
Rescue me from hanging on this line.
I won't give up on giving you the chance to blow my mind.
Let the eleventh hour quickly pass me by.
I'll find you when I think I'm out of time.
Take the place of my heart, till I become a stranger to my life.
I've been down without you, wrong without your love.
In time will I be what you're thinking of?
Rescue me from hanging on this line.
I won't give up on giving you the chance to blow my mind.
Let the eleventh hour quickly pass me by.
I'll find you when I think I'm out of time.
I've been down without you, cold without your love.
In time will I be what your thinking of?
Rescue me from hanging on this line.
I won't give up on giving you the chance to blow my mind.
Let the eleventh hour quickly pass me by.

The Last Lyrics




These fingers so frail paint in my mind
Scars down the back of my eyes
Death walks with me alone tonight
The coldness whispers it's almost near
Rest for soon it will be over
Years flash before me and I understand why I'm here
No one will ever know, as the pictures come clear
Don't worry they tell me this feeling won't last forever
Voices beating their drums in my heart
The water looks so peaceful below and the struggle lets go
Climbing over the wall of life's edge
Leaving behind the smiles of yesterday
The light that shined has vanished to a grayscale of night
Tears once present now look into the dryness inside
Silent words enter the sky screamed
Dream this body as a reply, and these words begin to write
Dear Lord, if these break the earth
And enter your courts save me tonight
Time is short and the hurt of death grows with every breath
Here I am at the end
This wall that blocked you out for so long opens wide
And I begin to burn from the inside
I'll never forget that night
The night Jesus Christ made the blackness white

Give us this day, our daily bread

As we forgive our debtors.
Lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
And the power, and the glory.
Forever and ever. amen.

The Messenjah Lyrics




I message, written in rhyme, prophetic
Teachers amongst the skeptics and guiding the misdirected
Infected with their lies and their alibis
With their third eye blind, out of line, they try to prophesy
I and I unfold the mysteries told
From the futuristic realms to the days of old
Make straight through the path of the one voice calling
Truth shines, back again two times in the Second Coming
I am the Messenjah (4x)
(Chorus:)
This I pledge, and I'll take it to my death
I'll lay my life down for you and die over again
I and I, I'm not ashamed of the Most High
Even if I die tonight, if I die tonight
This I pledge, and I'll take it to my death
You can bet your life on my words and everything I said
You can't take away my love for this sacrifice
Even if I die tonight, if I die tonight
True king descendant, master to the apprentice
Pleased to release and reveal in me His presence
Forever blessed, I believe if Jah said it
The word of life came alive in the scriptures - I read it
All hail, we prevail, the Tribes of Israel, flow through ya
We pursue the conquering lion of the Tribe of Judah
Don't let 'em fool ya, before this, the foolish get rushed
So don't slop, you never knew us

The Moment I Prayed Lyrics





"The Moment I Prayed"
I had been waiting for so long
Unfulfilled I was longing for someone
Wondering what I was doing wrong
Who would hold me and shelter me from the storm
I was faithfully searching for this life
I was looking in all the wrong places
That it occurred to me that I
Suddenly I realized what I had not done
Should have gone right to you from the start
To the creator of my heart
You were patiently waiting to hear from me
So you could reveal your perfect plan
I couldn't see now I understand
Looking back why was I so blue
Looking back I'm glad you took the time
You were showing me all I needed was you.
You were preparing my heart and mind
What I had to do was to go right to you from the start
To the creator of my heart
What a wonderful blessing you sent to me
As soon as I turned my face to you
You came through
The Moment I Prayed
The moment I asked, I knew that my heart was in his hands
The moment I knocked he opened the door for me
Made a wonderful miracle I had been praying for
I know my forever has come true
The Moment I prayed, he answered my prayer with you
(Each musician does a solo)
All I Had to do was to go right to you from the start
To the creator of my heart
What a wonderful blessing you sent to me
As soon as I turned my face to you
You came through
The Moment I Prayed
The moment I asked, I knew that my heart was in his hands
The moment I knocked he opened the door for me
Made a wonderful miracle I had been praying for
I know my forever has come true
The Moment I prayed, he answered my prayer with you

The Note From Which A Chord Is Built Lyrics




You have always been the best part of me
With my uncovered eyes
Loose from lenses absorbing light
Your hand is wrapped in mine
The sun set for the last time
Carpet stains from coffee cups
Thrown to stop from hurting so much
Paralyzed I thought I would fail you somehow
And let you down
But you saved me from death

The Ponytail Parade Lyrics




Three sleepless nights
This isn't how it's supposed to be
But you're so good at taking your time
To give back to me
I will wait for you forever
If you would just ask me
I thought that I could change you
But you changed me
But it doesn't feel right
Holding someone else's hand
Together on phone lines
And living at two opposite ends
It scares me to think that you could find takers
Other than me and better than me
But your head is elsewhere
And I'm talking enough for both of us
When will you see it's not so easy for me
You careless and whispered
Insulting and bruising
And I thought that you said
Things were improving
These laces are untied
But my feet are walking away
(I fall from your eyes. Your eyes I trusted. You said forever)
I never thought you could say these words
Is this really happening
(don't say that we can still be friends)
Erase my name from this page
How can you take all these days
(what is inside me, what have I done)
And throw them away,
(is this the only way that you will notice me)
As I sit here waiting for you
(dead words for closed ears, all this is sung for you)
I stay up nights
(if you are still pretending this is what's right)
Until stars leave the sky
(why can you look at me can you only see)
Knowing what my dreams can take away
(sides, your side, can take away)
Walk away from me
This night is done

The Reasons Lyrics




It's just the way it goes, and everybody does,
And nobody said I can't, and this is how I feel
And I just wanted to, I really thought I could
Because The Reasons why, Why do we do the things we do?
Because, I try to make you see these things the way I do
It is what it is, and that's too bad for you
I don't even care, Why can I why not
And I do what I want, and this cause I said so
Because The Reasons why, Why do we do the things we do?
Because, I try to make you see these things the way I do
Because The Reasons why, Why do we do the things we do?
Because The Reasons, The Reasons, Cause The Reasons
Because The Reasons why, Why do we do the things we do?
Because, I try to make you see these things the way I do
Because The Reasons why, Why do we do the things we do?
Because The Reasons, Because The Reasons, I try to reason.

The Secret Lyrics




On the way to grey
I could hardly wait to see you again
To feel your hands covering me
Til the storm is done
What seemed to be the end was not the end at all
When I hear the rain should I be afraid for my life?
Why do you look at me that way?
I told you that I was too busy to see you
I would never keep a secret from you
Is it over? I am fine
Thank you dearly for your time
I'll be leaving
Don't you cry
I'll be back soon
At least I'll try
Can't you see there is no time to think selfishly
Yesterday's gone, tomorrow's here
Can't turn back now
I won't quit
I still love you
I swear I always will

There Is A Louder Shout To Come Lyrics




VERSE 1:
There is a louder shout to come, there is a sweeter song to hear;
All the nations with one voice, all the people with one fear.
Bowing down before Your throne, every tribe and tongue we'll be;
All the nations with one voice, all the people with one King.
And what a song we'll sing upon that day.
CHORUS:
O what a song we'll sing and O what a tune we'll bear;
You deserve an anthem of the highest praise.
O what a joy will rise and O what a sound we'll make.
You deserve an anthem of the highest praise.
VERSE 2:
Now we see a part of this, one day we shall see in full
All the nations with one voice, all the people with one love.
No one else will share Your praise, nothing else can take Your place;
All the nations with one voice, all the people with one Lord.
And what a song we'll sing upon that day.
VERSE 3:
Even now upon the earth there's a glimpse of all to come;
Many people with one voice, harmony of many tongues.
We will all confess your name, You will be our only praise;
All the nations with one voice, all the people with one God;
And what a song we'll sing upon that day.

These Ordinary Days Lyrics




Not much for conversation, I still find need to pray.
Sometimes I get tired of walking through these ordinary days.
If nothing else I get to see you even if we never speak.
The harm of words is sometimes we don't quite know what they really mean.
I don't know where, I don't know how.
I don't know why, but your love can make these things better.
Let me lay down in this field and stare up at the sky.
I hope the days and clouds turn into something as they pass us by.
And maybe you could settle for a skyline faded blue.
I hope that you might settle for this love I have for you.
I don't know where, I don't know how.
I don't know why, but your love can make these things better.
I don't know where, I don't know how.
I don't know why, but your love can make these things better.
I don't know where, I don't know how.
I don't know why, but your love can make these things better.
Your love can make these things better.
Your love can make these things better.
Your love can make these things better.

These Quiet Streets Lyrics




I know the reason you're calling but it takes all I am to believe.
These streets are quiet, so quiet that I can't hear anything but I still hear everything.
Please tell me why, why, why me? I have nothing to give.
Oh but I feel useless. Choose somebody else.
Please forgive me. I can't do this alone.
Please stay. I miss you.
I keep forgetting this feeling. I forget how really lucky I am.
Okay I'll do what you're asking, but what makes you think I'm your man? You sure you really know who I am.
Please tell me why, why, why me? I have nothing to give.
Oh but I feel useless. Choose somebody else.
Please forgive me. I can't do this alone.
Please stay. I miss you.

They Care Lyrics




The seats fill, what do you see?
"Am I here for them, are they here for me?"
They listen and they hear your words
"But do I mean everything they've heard?"
They care, and they think you do
That's why they care for / follow you
Your lungs fill, with the breath they breathe
Is the moment now only make believe?
The stage is an alter; its foundation is trust
What is sung here or spoken either heals or it cuts
Leadership is a privilege offered only by grace
To abuse your position for your benefit
Is to spit in God's face

Thinking About Forever Lyrics




Time goes by and God knows I try to carry on with life
Decide not to hide feelings inside, even though they hurt
Sometimes, I forget to remember you
It's easy to lock away the pains, don't want to relive it through
But I stay strong, you taught me how to move on in this world
I married my sweetheart, even got a little baby girl
I wish you could see her, I swear she looks just like you
If you can hear me, show me a sign, please send her a butterfly or two
(Chorus:)
I'm thinking about forever (missing you)
I know you're so much better (we made it through)
Now I know what it means to live for someone else
To give up yourself
Things have changed, at times it gets kind of strange
Your love remains the same
Do I make you proud? Mama, can you see me now?
Whatever is good in me is because you showed me how to take love by the hand
And so now I can share you with my baby
So that she can understand
(Chorus)
I'm thinking about forever (missing you)
I know you're so much better (we made it through)
I'm thinking about forever (missing you)
I'm tripping on whatever (hearing you)

This One's With Me Lyrics




I was dreaming about heaven
I was standing at the pearling gates
We all there
I was so scared in the your presence one so great
I felt so worried and worthy
I felt like running away
I bowed my head and I turn to go
When I heard someone say
Father, this one's with me
Part of the family
One of the reasons I died
On Calvary
Father, Welcome him in
I paid the price for him
Father, Oh Father, this ones with me
I was dreaming about heaven
When I looked up the gates were opened wide
And in the distance, I saw Jesus
Our eyes met, and I began to cry
Angels rolled in their beauty,
Were that to show me the way
And all of heaven singing
When I heard his voice say
Father, this one's with me
Part of the family
One of the reasons I died
On Calvary
Father, Welcome him in
I paid the price for him
Father, Oh Father, this one's with me
Finally, we were there face to face
And he placed on me heaven's crown
I fell down on my knees
And lay my crown at his feet
Then he said, Timothy
Father, this one's with me
Part of the family
One of the reasons I died
On Calvary
Father, Welcome him in
I paid the price for him
Father, Oh Father, this one's with me.

Throw It Away Lyrics




I tried to fill the hole with Baywatch beauties
I tried to fill it up with Juji Fruit
I tried to fill it with a happy ending
I tried to fill it with a business suit
I'm with stupid most of the time
I pay for the things that you can't really buy
Throw it away, it's not the real thing
Throw it away, it's all a lie
Nothing but God can fill that hole inside
Nothing else is worthy of our lives
It's like the currency of Argentina
It's like the buzz about a dot com stock
I bought a lot of things to make me happy
I bought a lot of ways to belly flop
I'm with stupid most of the time
I cling to the things that'll never be mine
An observation on a reputation
An observation on a pedigree
An observation on the observation
Of money, muscle, and celebrity
Throw it away, it's not the real thing
Throw it away, it's all a lie
Nothing but God can fill that hole inside
Nothing else is worth our passion
Nothing else is worthy of our lives

Tinagera Lyrics




(Chuck Girard)
She is young, she was born in Tinagera
She was robbed of the youth she should have known
She's alive, she's alive and she lives in Tinagera
She's alive, but her heart is all alone
She's a child, just a child, yet her mind is old and tarnished
She is wise in the things she need not know
She is tired, she is tired and sad and lonely
She's a slave to the things which steal her soul
Anymore, anymore she isn't feeling
She's been torn from the things she once received
She's afraid, so afraid my Tinagera
She's afraid, so afraid to just believe
She don't know, she don't know my Tinagera
How can she believe unless you tell her so
There's a way, there's a way, a way my Tinagera
You can know, you can really, really know
Just believe, just believe, believe and you can feel it
Take a look around if you try then you will see
There's a way, if you know won't you show my Tinagera
There's a way, there's a way and you can know.

Tracing His Hand Lyrics




Psalm 31:5,15; 37:24; 98:1;139:10; John 12:26; Matthew 4:20
Jeni Varnadeau, Tommy Collier
Slipping in and out of my world
Wondering where this life is taking me
If I go my own way
I'll miss the journey I was meant to see
The road is narrow but it keeps on turning
But your hand I'll follow as I keep on learning
Wherever you lead, I wanna go
Even if it's someplace I don't know
Drawing me away and taking me from my comfort zone
Wherever we walk, it leaves a path
Just like footprints in the sand
And if I looked back
I'd see the plan
Was tracing your hand
Sinking into the spirit
Parting the sea of dust within my soul
Every step grows clearer
As I see your perfect will unfold
The road is narrow but it keeps on turning
Your hand will guide me as I keep on learning
I'll be walking this trail of trust
With you by my side
As we're tracing the hand of love
I'll surrender, I'll surrender my life

Tribal Lyrics




Where do you stand in this battle cry?
Tribal Soldier? Represent!
I and I a Jah Jah warrior
The reconstruction commences, the soldiers equip for the lessons
My life, a sacrifice is made new through these confessions
Manifested, this joy is my desire
Light this fire to flames, praise the name, Jehovah Jireh
Is my provider, the truth that lives inside of this fighter?
Take me higher, Master, Sire, makes me a rider
I'm gonna ride on down till I break through the front lines
And ain't going home until I gets mines
Where do you stand in this battle cry?
Tribal Soldier? Represent!
I and I a Jah Jah warrior
I grab ahold of my second chance, this time gonna make it last
Left the world came back an outkast
To lay among the remains, through the trials and the pains
Run for cover, make shelter, uncharted terrains
Bloodstains light the paths to the ways of living breath
My soul is put to the test
Blessed with a mic in my hand, Jah make straight my steps
Then I hooked up with Payable On Death
We flow in unity, stand in one while the foolish be
Lost in this hour, with power we have authority
To overcome while these cowards just pick up and run
We ain't done till this battle has been fought and won
The victory, how sweet it be, is already ours
Holding the stars, is the man that carries my scars
Always the same, I wear his name with no shame
Here in this battle cry, we will never die
We will never die tribal warriors
Where do you stand in this battle cry?
Tribal Soldier? Represent!
I and I a Jah Jah warrior

Trust You Lyrics




I guess I'm learning
What you have taught me all along
To trust you
Though they aren't listening
To trust you
Though I'm too tired to sing my song
I guess I'm learning
Just how much my opinion counts
Just trust you
Though I don't feel like I belong
Just trust you
I will not write an angry song
You come quickly now
And take me home with you
I see what I need
Is to just let go of it all
And trust you
Despite what I think you will do
Just trust you
Far less of me, far more of you

Truth Lyrics




I've been putting on and putting off too many people
And I'm getting old to live like an injured man
Ailment and unfilled prescription like the nose on my face
Like a broken boat safety raft and a love for the water
And I just can't decide to sink or swim it's me or them
Should I save myself or go back for the others because
Maybe there's no gray and I was wrong to tell 'em so
And maybe all that I've to do was done a long time ago
'Cause there was life before my life
There was provision before my need
There was redemption before my sin
For the sake of the world I thank the Lord
That the truth's not contingent on me
I've been dressing up and dressing down for too many people
And I'm a little young to live like a troubled boy, a troubled soul
A fish out of water, 'cause we're all just the same
We're all just as good and just as bad and just as distracted
By the corners of our eyes as our fathers were and theirs before
And all those before them and still I glance around
And with the way I stare you'd think I'd seen through a two-by-four
And with the way I walk you'd think I'd never seen grace before
But I've been putting up and putting down too many things
That I know nothing about but I'm jealous of
Holding pride as tight as I can like she was my only daughter

Under Serious Attack Lyrics




You've taken this too far
Now it has to stop
Once again
The table has turned
And I'm behind
Picking up the pieces from the night
My face is scared
Sometimes I feel that I can't trust myself at all
Every time the sky
Breaks open with sunshine
And streaming swords collide
It takes me back in time
I float away to another place
Where heaven is waiting right outside
This is war
Can I take it anymore
I'm falling faster and bleeding more than I have bled before
Certain death (this blade will carve a purpose)
Lingers on the other hand (and make you feel defeated)
But I will fight you and victory will be mine in the end
Circumstances mean nothing
When it's over we will be heroes
Constantly pushing forward without any fear
If I erased the line between
Forgotten days and memories
I'd never change
Resolution made (in vain)
To face (play out) the day
Life is yours to save (save it)
Or take (take it) away

Waiting On Your Love Lyrics




There's nothing so heavy
Weighing down the soul
As the weight of nothing
Worth my strength to hold
There's no pain so cutting
No battle as in vain
As the constant battle
To avoid the pain
You were poor when you were born
You could see Your Father clearly
Through the nothing that You owned
Free me from these binds, Lord
I am choking on the gifts this world gives, Jesus
I am waiting on Your love
So as Your word has promised
I must clearly choose
To lose my life and gain Your love
Or love my life and lose
You were poor when you were born
You could see Your Father clearly
Through the nothing that You owned
Free me from these binds, Lord
I am choking on the gifts this world gives, Jesus
I am waiting on Your love
Free me Lord to live this life
Believing all I really have is You
I am waiting on Your love

Walking Away Lyrics




The day I left you was the worst mistake I ever made
Was ready to become something I didn't need you dragging me down
Thought your love just wasn't enough
My hair combed, nice shoes tied tight
Was ready to conquer life
Help unwanted I can do this on my own and then I found myself wounded
Tripping over myself, falling and scraping my knee
Sadness fills for I know I've failed
Why did I leave scared to go back
Hoping you'll take me in with open arms
But also know the hurt I've caused
The breeze of angel wings
Standing there a midst of lowers of every being
Tears grow and orchestra begins to play
What a beautiful day, why are you alone
Run child it's time for you to go home
Wounded spirit face in the dirt
I cry out for you to take me in
Your heart holds me close, and
I look up to face this world which so scares me
Faith in you loneliness just seems to fade.
The man once inside now a child walking in your footsteps
Hoping held leaves under feet from the trees of fall
Listening to autumn's call
A deep breathe to continue on, fragile
Depending on you Christ carry's me the rest of the walk

Walking On Sunshine Lyrics




Used to think maybe you love me
Now I know that it's true
I just can spend my whole life
Just here waiting for you
Everytime I go to the mailbox
Gotta hold myself down
Cuz I just can't wait till you write me
You're coming around
I'm walking on sunshine
I'm walking on sunshine
I'm walking on sunshine
And don't it feel good?
Used to think maybe you love me
Now I know that I'm sure
I just can't wait till the day
When you knock on my door
Don't want you back for the weekend
Not back for a day, no no no
Baby I just want you back
And I want you to stay
Starting to feel good, yeah
I feel the love
I feel the love
I feel the love
That's really real
I feel the love
I feel the love
Starting to feel good now, baby
Starting to feel good now, sugar, yeah
Walking on sunshine, baby, yeah

Walls Lyrics




Are you listening?
We write a thousand pages
They're torn and on the floor
Headlights hammer the windows
Were locked behind these doors
And we are never leaving
This place is part of us
And all these scenes repeating
Are cold to the touch
My hands seem to deceive me
When I'm nervous or when I'm healthy.
The scenery's all drawn.
They hang here from the walls dear,
Painting pictures, bleeding colors,
Blanket the windows.
Sometimes it gets so hard to breathe.
Your eyes can see right through me.
These fights with your arms left beside.
One thing and one more says goodnight.
You've got the map come get to me.
These knuckles break before they bleed.
Tear out these veins that own my heart.
This skin that wears your lasting marks.
I've built these walls come get to me, come get to me.
Is this your lesson, a slight discretion,
The lines that keep you, the lines that sweep you.
Lock the doors from the inside.
Your face is so contagious, it wears announcements,
It leaves me breathless, I won't forget this.
Let the walls have their say.
There's no conversation
Words without remorse
And this television drowns the only source
Wake from these dreams of you in my arms
To the staircase where you hold my heart
This place, these walls, mean everything to me.

Way Of The Cross Lyrics




Show me the way of the cross once again
Denying myself for the love that I've gained
Everything's You now, everything's changed,
It's time You had my whole life;
You can have it all.
(Yes,) I resolve to give it all;
Some things must die,
Some things must live.
Not, "What can I gain,"
But, "What can I give?"
If much is required when much is recieved,
Then You can have my whole life;
Jesus, have it all.
I've given like a beggar but lived like the rich
And crafted myself a more comfortable cross,
Yet what I am called to is deeper than this,
It's time You had my whole life;
You can have it all.

What A Wondrous Love Is This Lyrics




What wondrous love is this, O my soul, O my soul!
What wondrous love is this, O my soul!
What wondrous love is this,
That caused the Lord of bliss,
To bear the dreadful curse,
For my soul, for my soul,
To bear the dreadful curse for my soul.

To God and to the Lamb, I will sing, I will sing!
To God and to the Lamb, Who is the great "I AM,"
While millions join the theme, I will sing, I will sing!
While millions join the theme, I will sing.
And when from death I'm free, I'll sing on, I'll sing on!
And when from death I'm free, I'll sing on,
And when from death I'm free, I'll sing and joyful be,
And thro' eternity, I'll sing on, I'll sing on,
And thro' eternity, I'll sing on.

What Did I Do (To Deserve You) Lyrics

Unbelievable describes your smile so sweet
Inconceivable that you're a part of me
Innocent look in your eyes
Love without compromise for me
It's a mystery
What did I do to deserve you
Only God's hands could have made you
And brought this dream to life
Always swore that I , I would never fall
I guess miracles happen after all
What did I do to deserve you
Oh yeah
Unconventional, describes my love for you
Unconditional, cause there's nothing I won't do
I pray as this feeling grows
That you always touch the heart and soul of me
It's a mystery
What did I do to deserve you
Only God's hand could have made you
And brought this dream to life
Always swore that I , I would never fall
I guess miracles happen after all
What did I do to deserve you
I've waited all my life to hold such a treasure
What is this feeling worth, there is no measure
Tell me what can I do
What did I do to deserve you
Only God's hand could have made you
And brought this dream to life
Always swore that I'd , I would never fall
I guess miracles happen after all
What did I do to deserve you

And is breath really breathing
Without You
When will I learn to accept my mistakes?
When will I learn to accept Your grace?
And if I was perfect well I wouldn't need mercy
And if I was perfect I wouldn't
Need God - I wouldn't need God

When will I learn to accept Your grace?

Hey there pal what's the matter Norman
Did you get some bad news
Tell me do you got 'them blues'

I love this game who's wrong and who's right

I'm slowly unmasked and I'm faced with shame
Is it your mommy or your dad

The knife you used was four letters long and do you cry?"

Whatever She Wants Lyrics




All her wants to fill a need.
She wants to save you with her bandages after she makes you bleed.
Like a vampire, a parasite.
Stretch the neck of her victim, she finds her prey in broad daylight.
So when you're up, she's down, down she's up, it whips around.
It's the ride the way that she needs it.
Whatever she wanted for whatever you need.
Speechless and silent while she takes everything.
Kryptonite underneath; you used to be her superman,
But now you're fading, now your weak.
Never how or why it worked to play the big lie.
To dim the truth from causing her wet eyes.
Whatever she wanted for whatever you need.
Speechless and silent while she takes everything.
Yeah, whatever she wanted for whatever you need.
Speechless and silent while she takes everything.
Yeah, whatever she wanted for whatever you need.
Speechless and silent while she takes everything.
She takes everything.
Whatever she wants.
It's everything.

When I Was Ready To Listen Lyrics




(Chuck Girard)
When my life was empty, I tried so hard to be filled
Smiling eyes were fading and the laughter had been stilled
Reaching out so desperately to fill the inner need
That we all are trying to satisfy, but none of us succeed
Trying every substitute for love that I could find
Temporary pleasures that would keep me for a time
But when each thrill was over, my sorrow would increase
For nothing that I tried had ever brought me lasting peace
And then, You came to me, when I was ready to listen
Dissolved the mystery, when I was ready to listen
And I knew your name
And I knew your face
And I knew I belonged to...you

That's when I live the life

That's when I live my song
When the band goes home
That's when I live my song
When we've said Amen
And the crowd begins to fade away
That's when I live the life
That I sing about in my song
If I sing a song of love
I've got to live it
If I sing a song of joy
I've got to live it
If I sing a song of peace
If I sing a song of happiness
I've got to live the life
That I sing about in my song
If I sing a song of pain
Oh I've lived it
If I sing a song of dispair
Oh I've lived it
God has given me a song of hope
He has given me a song of victory
I've got to live the life that I
Sing about in my song
Cause when the music stops
That's when I live my song
When the band goes home
That's when I live my song
When we've said Amen
And the crowd begins to fade away
That's when I live the life
I sing about in my song
When the music stops
I've got to live the life
I sing about in my song
When the music stops
When the band goes home
I'm all alone

When the Sun Sleeps Lyrics




Thought you'd come back at least I prayed (so I prayed)
The romance has been dead (the romance is dead, the romance is dead)
For years (you come back)
But I've been too afraid to dig the grave (so I prayed)
Relief support never came
Memories carry me through the day
Of when we were kids
And angels came to watch us play
Close my eyes, just for tonight
The sun still sleeps, and when she wakes
Close my eyes, just for tonight
The sun still sleeps, and when she wakes
A movie that plays in my mind
Remembering you helps me survive
Every day a re-run of the next
I promised to stay by your side
That all would change, I can't complain
Another victim of the game
Close my eyes, just for tonight
The sun still sleeps, and when she wakes
Close my eyes, just for tonight
The sun still sleeps, and when she wakes
Maybe love will find us again
For there is always tomorrow
Sincerely till the end
Close my eyes just for tonight
The sun still sleeps and when she wakes,
Close my eyes just for tonight
The sun still sleeps and when she wakes
Close my eyes, just for tonight
The sun still sleeps, and when she wakes
Close my eyes, just for tonight
The sun still sleeps, and when she wakes
You'll be a memory (be a memory)
You'll be a memory (be a memory)
You'll be a memory (be a memory)
You'll be a memory, memory, memory, memory

Wildlife Lyrics




Come and give me that WILDFIRE!
The uncivilized sound that I love
The primitive ragga blaze style
Consciousness vibes I and I know
The untainted flame that I DESIRE!
Me want uncultivated Jah glow
Foolish identity, versatile
He'll fly the spirit high, make me HIGHER!
One leads with the passion
The righteous will burn again
One bleeds everlasting
Tribal fire will never end
One leads with the passion
The righteous will burn again
One bleeds everlasting
Tribal fire never ends
I want to feel that WILDFIRE!
Irregular burning of the sun
Shining through, make you spit FIRE!
Savage combustion, let it go
Impetuous fervor testifier
Outlandish passions I know
Crucial rhythms no denial
Musical nation, EMPIRE!
One leads with the passion
The righteous will burn again
One bleeds everlasting
Tribal fire will never end
One leads with the passion
The righteous will burn again
One bleeds everlasting
Tribal fire never ends
One leads with the passion
Tribal fire will never end
The righteous will burn again
Tribal fire will never end
One bleeds everlasting
Tribal fire will never end
Tribal fire will never end
One leads with the passion
The righteous will burn again
One bleeds everlasting
Tribal fire never ends

Will You Lyrics




See you sitting next to the window in the bedroom
She brakes down - brakes down
Crying over something and staring into nothing
Afraid now - hate now
Wanting, needing, haunting, it's killing me
Faking what has happened to live the life like that man
I'll brake down - It's fake now
Will you, Will you love me tomorrow
So Will You, Will you stay with me today
Fade in and out of reason to fight the way she's feeling
She brakes down - brakes down
Going through the motions and holding onto hopes
And her dreams now - somehow
Shakin, mistaken, forsaken, it's killing me.
Wishing you could change, but he's always been this way
If you leave now - I'll drown
Will you, Will you love me tomorrow
So Will You, Will you stay with me today
Will you, Will you be here tomorrow
So Will You, you remember yesterday
Yesterday! Yesterday! Yesterday!
This time, I'm sorry
This time, I'm sorry
This time, this time, I'm sorry for this time
This time, this time, I'm sorry
This time I'm sorry!
Will you, Will you love me tomorrow
So Will You, Will you stay with me today
Will you, Will you be here tomorrow
So Will You, you remember yesterday
Will you, Will you love me tomorrow
So Will You, Will you stay with me today
Will you, Will you be here tomorrow
So Will You, you remember yesterday

You (Knock, Knock) Lyrics




Psalm 9:1-2; 18:1-3
Jeni Varnadeau & Bob Halligan, Jr.
Knock, Knock
Who's there?
Me. Me, who?
Me who wants to get to you
Me who keeps longing for something new
Following my feelings
Chasing shadows and points of view
'Til I found there's no one like
You who mold my future
My security
You who hold my heart
You who set me free
Full of fun and wonder
Care unceasingly
You who loved regardless
You who died for me
Hey, Hey
Who cares?
Anybody out there?
Who can fill this heart of mine?
Been lots of places, met lots of faces
Some were rude, some were kind
Some just opened up my mind
But no one treats me like
I found goodness when I met ya
Peace I can't describe
You're the treasure of my soul
'Cause you loved me with your life

You Are Everything We Need Lyrics




"You Are Everything We Need" by Shirley Caesar
Album: He's Working It Out For You
CHORUS
You are everything that we need
Through winter, summer, spring or fall
All of the countless times we've failed
Yet Your grace still prevails
Lord, You're everything
Let the praises ring
Lord, You're everything we need
If I could mend all of the broken
hearts in the world
I'd heal every man, woman, boy or girl
But I know someone who cares
He holds the power in His hand
It's Jesus. He never fails.
CHORUS
Everything you need
He's been my mother
He's everything
He's been my father.

You Are My Treasure Lyrics




I'm created for You alone
Bought with a price I'm not my own
I'm seated in the heavenlies
And there's no place I'd rather be
Than with You forever Lord (2nd time repeat 3 times)
(repeat)
You are my treasure
Faithful Lord, fill my cup
With your grace and love, Your grace and love
The pleasures that this world's sure of
Will never be enough, can never be enough
Cause I'm created for You alone
Bought with a price I'm not my own
I'm seated in the heavenlies
And there's no place I'd rather be
Than with You forever Lord
You are my treasure
Faithful Lord, fill my cup
With your grace and love, Your grace and love
The pleasures that this world's sure of
They will never be enough, can never be enough
Cause I'm created for You alone
Bought with a price I'm not my own
I'm seated in the heavenlies
And there's no place I'd rather be
Than with You forever Lord
You are my treasure
I'm created for You alone
Bought with a price I'm not my own
I'm seated in the heavenlies
And there's no place I'd rather be
Than with You forever Lord
Than with You forever Lord
Than with You forever Lord
You are my treasure
You are my treasure
You are my treasure
You are my treasure

You Ask Me Why Lyrics




(Chuck Girard)
You ask me why I keep on smilin'
When all the world's in such a mess
And I just have to say that there is just one way
To find true lasting happiness
You ask me how I keep my head together
When this old world is tumbling down
I think you've heard the talk, the talk about the solid rock
He'll keep your feet right on the ground
People try so hard to find
A way to gain some peace of mind
And they try this and they try that
People scream out to be free they cry for love and liberty
Yeah, the words of God could free them
If they'd only stop to hear
You ask me how I keep on smilin'
When this world looks like it's comin' to an end
Though these be final days, when the Light comes through the haze
A bright new world will just begin
1974 Dunamis Music

You Wouldn't Know Lyrics




I was listening to you
But I couldn't hear you
Through all of your talking
I was trying to understand
Trying to make sense of
Your foreign language
It's not a matter of my lack of faith
My stubbornness, I want you to know
I'm fascinated by why you believe
What you believe
Not why I don't
You wouldn't know
You never stopped you're talking
I never got a word in edge-wise to tell you I believed it
No, enchanted by your arguments
The sound of your own voice
You wouldn't know
Now I'm trying to figure out
Exactly what I asked to warrant such answers

Your Love Never Fails Me Lyrics




Take it slowly my heart is fragile and not ready
I hear your voice call to me
Though I am tired I am willing to go with you.
Your love never fails me
Though the world around me crumbles
And the voices in my head
Say I can't do this I will go with you
You hold the keys to my dreams
I will move forward if you'll let me
When I'm with you I am free
Apart from you I can do nothing
So come and take me
Your love never fails me
Though the world around me crumbles
And the voices in my head
Say I can't do this I will go with you
