Above The Noise Lyrics




Rom 8;14, Matt 6:1-4
Its been a long time coming
But its been right here
It took too long to see it
Now it is really clear
I can't believe we missed it
Such a perfect sound
Its been there waiting
Just above the Loud
Channel
On the mystery of a love
That always finds itself in me
On the beauty of desire
That keeps calling me to deep
I want a heart that hears you whisper
I want these eyes to see your plans
I want a soul that holds to something
That's beyond these human hands
I want the feeling of your presence
I want to love to hear your voice
I want to live above the noise
I've seen a lot of places
I've been to me and back
Every time I take that trip
I always over pack
I bring the dreams that charmed me
One's that owned my past
Why do I hold so tight the
Things that never last
Channel 2X
On the mystery of a love
That always finds itself in me
On the beauty of desire
That keeps calling me to deep

After The Rain Lyrics




After The Rain
(written by Carlton Burgess)
(recorded by Gospel Music Workshop of America (GMWA) Mass Choir, Rev. Donald Vails, and Rev. James Cleveland)
Chorus:
Count it joy, joy,
after the rain the sun will shine again.
Count it joy, joy,
after the rain the sun will shine again.
Verse:
Weeping may endure for a night,
joy will surely come.
If you keep the faith and never doubt,
your faith will bring you out;
(after the rain the sun will shine again).
Chorus
Bridge:
It's gonna shine again,
it's gonna shine again,
it's gonna shine again;
after the rain the sun will shine again.
It's gonna shine again,
it's gonna shine again,
it's gonna shine again...
Vamp:
After the rain.
After the rain.
After the rain.
After the rain.
Ending:
After the rain the sun will shine again.

Agree To Disagree Lyrics




Standing on this battlefield of strong opinion
Among the verbal brush and briar
Plenty of weaponry and ammunition
We say ready aim fire
So you argue points of logic until I'm put in my place
And I argue my convictions until I'm blue in the face but
We just keep on going round in circles
Lost, found, life is such a mystery
We search and we find opposing answers
Maybe we should just agree to disagree
Can we meet on nuetral ground
For surrender
And carve a path for restitution
Because my love for you is surely strong enough
To find some kind of resolution
Cause we can have our differences
And that won't change the way I feel
About you and about me and about God
And His whole deal but
We just keep on going round in circles
Lost, found, life is such a mystery
We search and we find opposing answers
Maybe we should just agree to disagree
Cause we are getting nowhere fast
When the concrete and the supernatural clash
So we will stand at other ends with all this stuff
But can't we find a common thread in love
And in our thirsting quest for knowledge
Maybe one day we will find
That I finally see it your way
Or you finally see it mine
We just keep on going round in circles
Lost, found, life is such a mystery
We search and we find opposing answers
Maybe we should just agree to disagree

Amazing Grace Lyrics




I grew this heart into a drifter
Never felt the roots I bare
Sold my sight, oh, brother, sister
For a mountain of fool's gold, it's gone
Only God knows, God knows where
Soul was restless for redemption
Feet were lookin' for a place to stand
Well, I ain't got no life
And you know I ain't got no money
Just the faith of an empty hand, empty hand
Chorus:
Amazing grace, I feel you comin' up slowly now
Like the sun is risin', heat on my face
Oh, love that keeps on shinin', don't let the shadow come
You know I gotta feel your healin' rays
Hitched a ride; I was a beggar
And I had murder on my hands
Needed water to rinse these stains
But only blood could remove what's spillin'
And pardon me to blame
[CHORUS]
Amazing grace, I feel you comin' up slowly now
Amazing grace, I feel you comin' up slowly now
Amazing grace, I feel you comin' up slowly now
Like the sun is risin', heat on my face
Oh love that keeps on shinin' don't let the shadow come
You know I got to, yeah
[CHORUS]
See, I gotta feel your healin' rays
You know I gotta feel your amazing grace

Angels Lyrics




(Written by Jennifer Kimball and Tom Kimmel)
The touch of His hand will let me know
He takes me in and lets me go
If not for love, who would believe?
Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, in you and me
We're lifted up by angels
Higher than the world
Strong enough to leave it
Bound to learn the secrets
Angels never heard
Close enough to heaven
Far above the rain
Darkness cannot reach us
Let the angels teach us
Only love remains
We're lifted up by angels
To understand, yet never say
How every plan would fade away
If not for love, where would we be?
Ashes to dust, water to rust, eternally
We're lifted up by angels
Higher than the world
Strong enough to leave it
Bound to learn the secrets
Angels never heard
Close enough to heaven
Far above the rain
Darkness cannot reach us
Let the angels teach us
Only love remains
We're lifted up by angels
Given wings to fly
Leave the night behind us
Trust the light to find us
Even as we rise
We're lifted up by angels
Higher than the world
Strong enough to leave it
Bound to learn the secrets
Angels never heard
Close enough to heaven
Far above the rain
Darkness cannot reach us
Let the angels teach us
Only love remains
We're lifted up by angels

Anything Is Possible Lyrics




I know that you've been thinking
I see it in your eyes
You're holding on to something
But still you don't know why
So walk by faith and not by what you see
Trust your heart and let yourself believe
CHORUS
I can do things, things you never knew
Change your world, make it all brand new
I can do miracles if you want me to
Anything is possible for you
Anything, anything, anything, anything is possible
Repeat
I know your heart's been broken
You feel so all alone
But I will never leave you lonely
I'll never let you go
So walk by faith and not by what you see
It's up to you to let your heart believe
Chorus
If I can make the Heavens
If I can make it rain
If I can make your heart beat
Then I can ease your pain
If I'm the only answer, the only one that's right
Tell me why are you still searching?
Why do you still fight?Cause I cant
When I can do
Chorus

Be Glorified Lyrics




Your love has captured me
Your grace has set me free
Your life the air I breathe
Be glorified in me
Your love has captured me
Your grace has set me free
Your life the air I breathe
Be glorified in me
You set my feet to dancing
You set my heart on fire
In the presence of a thousand kings
You are my one desire
I stand before you now
With trembling hands lifted high
Be glorified
Your love has captured me
Your grace has set me free
Your life the air I breathe
Be glorified in me
Oh yeah
You set my feet to dancing
You set my heart on fire
In the presence of a thousand kings
You are my one desire
I stand before you now
With trembling hands lifted high
Be glorified
Be glorified in me
Be glorified in me
Be glorified in me
Be glorified
Be glorified in me
Be glorified in me
Be glorified in me
Be glorified in me
Be glorified
You set my feet to dancing
You set my heart on fire
In the presence of a thousand kings
You are my one desire
I stand before you now
With trembling hands lifted high
Be glorified

Because He Lives Lyrics




Because He Lives
(Performed by Various Artists)
(written by Bill Gaithers, Gloria Gaithers)
God sent His son, They called Him Jesus. He came to love, heal and forgive. He lived and died, to buy my pardon. An empty grave is there to prove my Savior lives.
Because He lives, I can face tomorrow.
Because He lives, all fear is gone.
Because I know, I know, I know He holds the future.
And life is worth the living just because He lives.
How sweet to hold a new born baby, and feel the pride and joy he gives. But greater still is that assurance the child can face uncertain days because He lives.
Because He lives, I can face tomorrow.
Because He lives, all fear is gone.
Because I know, I know, I know He hold the future.
And life is worth the living just because He lives.
And then one day, I'll cross that river. I'll fight life's final war with pain. And then as death gives way to victory. I'll see the light of glory and I'll know that He lives.
Because He lives, I can face tomorrow.
Because He lives, all fear is gone.
Because I know, I know, I know He hold the future.
And life is worth the living just because He lives.

Beyond These Shores Lyrics




Beyond these shores
Into the darkness
Beyond these shores
This boat may sail
And if this is the way
Then there will be
A path across this sea
And if I sail beyond
The farthest ocean
Or lose myself in depths below
Wherever I may go
Your love surrounds me
For you have been before
Beyond these shores

Bi-Se I Mo Shuil, Pt. 1 Lyrics




Gaelic adaptation of 'Be Thou my Vision' by Hugh Brennan
Bi-se I mo shuil
A Ri mhor na nduil
Lion thusa mo bheatha
Mo cheadfai's mo stuaim
Bi thusa I m'aigne
Gach oiche's gach la
Im chodladh no im dhuiseacht
Lion me le do gra
Bi thusa mo threoru
I mbriathar is I mbeart
Fan thusa go deo liom is
Coinnigh me ceart
Glac curam mar athair
Is eist le mo ghui
Is tabhair domsa ait conai
Istigh I do chroi
Be my eyes, O king of creation
Fill my life with understanding
And patience
Will You be my mind every night
And every day
Sleeping or awake
Fill me with Your love
Will You be my guidance
In my words and actions
Stay with me forever
And keep me on the right path
As my Father take care of me
And listen to my prayers
And give me a place
To live inside Your heart
(English translation by Adodh O Dugain)

Breathe On Me Lyrics




Over and over I've come to this place
Missing the mark I need Your embrace
Thumbing through pages of healing and hope
Tell me again these words that I know
I long for Your Spirit to flow and rush through the depths of my soul
Chorus:
Breathe on me the words of wisdom to the heart of a seeker calling Your name
Breathe on me, You can melt away these clouds of confusion over my head
Sweep this distance away, pull me close to Your face
Surround me with Your gentle holy breeze, breathe on me
You are the one constant love in this life
Faithful and true tested by time
Just like a child I'm secure in Your arms
Far from my fears and near to Your heart
You know where my faith has been, whisper assurance again
CHORUS

Breathe on me

Broken Lyrics




I wanted to taste life, I ran out on my own and found no place to hide
So come and catch me, so unsure of myself and if choices are free
Then why aren't they mine anymore, my sin goes before me closing doors
And the day to day has me torn between right and wrong
Where do I belong
A broken and contrite heart oh Lord You will receive
A broken and contrite heart oh Lord You will receive
I go down, I fall at Your feet asking for You to save me
Only to save me
A broken and contrite heart oh Lord You will receive
Surely I've failed You
I've failed to go beyond grace and seek after truth
Not wanting Your mercy
Try to purchase a pardon--my deeds my currency
[instrumental]
A broken and contrite heart oh Lord You will receive
A broken and contrite heart oh Lord You will receive
I go down, I fall at Your feet asking for You to save me
Only to save me
A broken and contrite heart oh Lord You will receive

Captured Lyrics




I heard your echo in the canyon
Upon the timberline
You said these mountains were your invention
And so was this heart of mine
I heard you whisper on the water,
There on the mighty sea
You spoke of love deep as the ocean
When You spoke of Your love for me
I am loved by the Father
I am loved by the Son
It is love that has captured
The heart of this wayward one
I heard your laughter in the sunrise,
Amidst the morning birds
A song of freedom for all creation
And you sang me every word
I heard you singing in the silence,
A simple melody
Words of love, O I can hear it
My Father is very fond of me

Come Home Running Lyrics




Oh heart of mine, why must you stray?
From one so fair you run away
And one more time you have to pay
The heaviness of needless shame
Oh heart of mine, come back home
You've been too long out on your own
And He's been there all along
Watching for you down the road
So come home running
His arms are open wide
His name is Jesus
He understands
He is the answer
You are looking for
So come home running
Just as you are
Oh child of God so dearly loved
And ransomed by the Savior's blood
And called by name, "daughter" and "son"
Wrapped in the robe of righteousness

Come Let Us Worship Lyrics




Come, let us worship and bow down
Before the Lord Most Holy
Before the King of Glory
Come and lay your burdens down
Before the Friend who's faithful
Before the One who's able
For He is our God
And we are His people
[Yes] He is our God
And we will never be forsaken
Come, let us lift our voice in praise
Unto the Rock of Ages
Unto the God who saves us
Come and glorify His name
All the earth together
All the saints forever
You are our God
And we are Your people
You are our God
And we will be with You Forever

Come To Me Lyrics




Broken and battered, your confidence's shattered. But I, I'm still here.
The things that you cling to they seem to just bring you right back to your fears.
Where the nails and the spirit my site.
Not quite enough to provide, the victory in your life come to me.
Come to me,
If you come to me.
It'll be alright now.
Depression is spending, this fairytale ending you saw for you self.
Broken glass photographs that use to make you laugh sit on the shelf?
And you'll change the frame if you could,
But you'll do many things that you should.
Hoping that I'll think your good... we know.
Come to me, come to me.
If you come to me,
Oh it'll be alright now.
If you come to me, It'll be alright now.
Your broken and battered, your confidence shattered. But I, I'm still here.
Your broken and shattered, your body's been battered.
By what they call life.
Depression is ending, this life you've been spending.
Wrapped up in your lies.
And once in a while's not enough.
To show to me what you call love.
So don't waste my words aren't all I want.
Come to me, come to me.
If you come to me,
Oh it'll be alright now.

Dance Like No One's Watching Lyrics




Carolyn Arends
I want to sing just like the sparrow 'cause the sparrow knows
That your eye will be upon her everywhere that she goes
I want to shout out like the mountains 'cause they say those rocks
Love to lift up their praises and they never stop
I want to chase you like King David till it's all that I can do
To sing and shout and laugh about the way you made me new
I want to dance like no one's watching
Dance like no one's watching
Dance like no one's watching
Nobody but you
I want to grow just like the lilies dressed up in your best
'Cause they stretch toward the sun and trust in you for the rest
I want to climb up like a daughter on her daddy's knee
Who is laughing 'cause she knows that she is loved abundantly
You said that I should come to you just like a little kid
And maybe even kick my heels the way that David did
I'm gonna dance like no one's watching
Dance like no one's watching
Dance like no one's watching
Nobody but you
Well heaven knows I worry and those worries tend to keep me
Bottled up so tightly in my soul
So spill me like the perfume that was poured upon your feet
And then fill me till at last I overflow
That's when I'll dance like no one's watching
Dance like no one's watching
Dance like no one's watching
Nobody but you
I want to chase you like King David till at last you capture me
And then I'll sing and shout and laugh about the way you set me free
I want to dance like no one's watching
Dance like no one's watching
Dance like no one's watching
Nobody but you

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
Its taken days and nights to make me realize
(Chorus)
Rescue me from hanging on this line
I won't give up on giving you
A 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?
(Chorus)
(out of time) (time)
I've been down without you
Cold without your love
In time will I be what you're thinking of?

Enough Lyrics




All of You is more than enough for all of me
For every thirst and every need
You satisfy me with Your love
And all I have in You is more than enough
You are my supply
My breath of life
And still more awesome than I know
You are my reward
Worth living for
And still more awesome than I know
All of You is more than enough for all of me
For every thirst and every need
You satisfy me with Your love
And all I have in You is more than enough
You're my sacrifice
Of greatest price
And still more awesome than I know
You're my coming King
You are everything
And still more awesome than I know
More than all I want
More than all I need
You are more than enough for me
More than all I know
More than all I can see
You are more than enough for me

Everything Lyrics




With rain, with sun
With much, with less
With joy, with pain
With life, with death
The only things that satisfy come from You
They come from You
Everything that's beautiful
Everything that's wonderful
Every perfect gift comes from You
Your grace, Your heart
Your voice, Your touch
Your word, Your peace
Your hope, Your love
A thousand words could not explain
A thousand worlds could not contain
Every perfect gift comes from You
It comes from the Father of Lights
It comes from the Giver of Life
It comes from the Heavens above
It's coming straight from Your heart
To the people You love

Faith Enough Lyrics




"The world breaks every one and
Afterward many are strong at the broken places"
-- from "A Farewell to Arms" by Ernest Hemingway
The ice is thin enough for walkin'
The rope is worn enough to climb
Throat is dry enough for talkin'
World is crumblin', but I know why
World is crumblin', but I know why
Storm is wild enough for sailing
Bridge is weak enough to cross
This body frail enough for fighting
I'm home enough to know I'm lost
Home enough to know I'm lost
Chorus:
It's just enough to be strong
In the broken places, in the broken places
It's just enough to be strong
Should the world rely on faith tonight
Land unfit enough for planting
Barren enough to conceive
Poor enough to gain the treasure
Enough a cynic to believe
Enough a cynic to believe
[CHORUS]
Confused enough to know direction
Sun eclipsed enough to shine
Be still enough to finally tremble
See enough to know I'm blind
See enough to know I'm blind
[CHORUS x 2]
Should the world rely on faith tonight
Should the world rely on faith tonight
Tonight
Tonight
Tonight
Tonight
Tonight

Free (Take My Life) Lyrics




Take my life, make it clay
Shape this life in intricate ways
I want to be a child of faith
But what my heart wants most my body turns away
I push Your ways aside and wonder why I let pride decide every time
But I can't wait to be free
From this life of mindless sin that compromises me
I know one day I will be
There is a victory that You've won for me
And when You come back again
I'll be free
Turn my eyes to Your face
Let me draw from Your strength
And bathe in Your grace
Let me soar with wings to win this race
Let me have Your peace it's not a hopeless chase
'Cause I lose sight of all You have called me to be
And it takes so much to drop me to my knees
But I can't wait to be free
From this life of mindless sin that compromises me
I know one day I will be
There is a victory that You've won for me
And when You come back again
I'll be free
I know one day I will be
There is a victory that You've won for me
And when You come back again
I'll be free
Take my life, make it clay
Shape this life in intricate ways
I want to be a child of faith
But what my heart wants most my body turns away...
But I know one day I'll be free...

Give Me My Flowers Lyrics




Give Me My Flowers
(recorded by Rev. James Cleveland, The Consolers, and Slim & The Supreme Angels)
GIVE ME MY FLOWERS
WHILE I YET LIVE
SO THAT I, I, I CAN SEE THE BEAUTY
THAT THEY BRING
FRIENDS AND LOVED ONES
MAY GIVE ME FLOWERS
WHEN IM SICK
OR ON MY SICK BED
BUT ID RATHER HAVE
JUST ONE TULIP RIGHT NOW
THAN A TRUCK LOAD OF ROSES
WHEN IM DEAD
SPEAK KIND WORDS TO ME
WHILE I CAN HEAR THEM
SO THAT I, I, I CAN HEAR THE BEAUTY
THAT THEY BRING

God Has Smiled On Me Lyrics




Chorus:
God has smiled on me,
He has set me free.
God has smiled on me,
He's been good to me.
Verse 1:
He is the source of all my joy,
He fills me with His love.
Everything that I need,
He sends it down from above.
Verse 2:
A light unto my path is He,
Without Him I would fall.
I don't know what He is to you,
But to me He's my all and all.

Good Way Lyrics

Traffic noise, expensive toys
A love that never lasts
Broken homes and self-made thrones
We're livin' life too fast
That we forget the things that His love brings
Beyond what this world is
I can hear it still today
What the preacher used to say
This is how you live
You've got to..
Believe in your heart
Right down to your soul
And speak the true things
And know that you know
'Cause this might be the day
So live like it is
Find the good way
And walk in it
Walk on
Saints of old and streets of gold
Will gaze upon His throne
Singin' holy, holy
God of glory
We'll worship Him alone
So keep your eye on the sky
While it's all passing by
This world is not our home
'Cause someday soon
We're gonna be made new
But until then
You've got to...
Believe in your heart
Right down to your soul
And speak the true things
And know that you know
'Cause this might be the day
So live like it is
Find the good way
And walk in it
Walk on
Believe in your heart
Right down to your soul
And speak the true things
And know that you know
'Cause this might be the day
So live like it is
Find the good way
And walk in it
Walk on
Take a look around
The world is falling down
Why can't we see
That it's almost over
The clouds are rollin' in
He's gonna break the sky
The dead are gonna rise
Those who are alive in Him
Will fly, will fly
Find, find the good way
Find, find the good way
Find, find the good way
Believe in your heart
Right down to your soul
And speak the true things
And know that you know
'Cause this might be the day
So live like it is
Find the good way
And walk in it
Walk on
Believe in your heart
Right down to your soul
And speak the true things
And know that you know
'Cause this might be the day
So live like it is
Find the good way
And walk in it
Walk on

Jn 12;35-36, 44-46, Eph 5:8-14
Such proud proud eyes
I never saw you cry
You were strong enough
To make it though the years
Still there comes a time in every single life
When like a baby we can all be brought to tears
When you're crumbling like a wall beneath the flood,
Call my name and I'll be there to lift you up
Chorus:
If you ever need someone
To be with you through the darkest of times
Whisper a prayer and I'll meet you there
I'll hold you close and I'll be your guiding light
I'll be your guiding light
Some are broken by the sorrows of their lives
Some are broken by a love they can't explain
No one knows their need before they know defeat
It's from a storm cloud that mercy sends us rain
It's not a question of if the storms will come
So when it happens, you will need a place to run
Repeat Chorus
When you're lost & far from all that you have hoped in
I'll be waiting and my arms will be wide open

Happy Song Lyrics




Well I could sing unending songs
Of how you saved my soul
& I could dance a thousand miles
Because of your great love
C'mon everybody dance
Everybody dance
My heart is bursting Lord to
To tell of all you've done
Of how've you changed my life
And wiped away the past
Well, I want to shout it out
From every roof top sing
For now I know
That God is for me, not against me
I could sing unending songs
Of how you saved my soul
& I could dance a thousand miles
Because of your great love
My heart is bursting Lord to
To tell of all you've done
Of how've you changed my life
And wiped away the past
Well I want to shout it out
From every roof top sing
For now I know
That God is for me, not against me
Everybody's singin' now
Cuz we're so happy
Yeah,
Everybody's dancin' now
Cuz we're so happy
If only I could see your face,
See you smiling over us
And unseen angels celebrate
Hey! The joy is in this place
Yeah,
The joy is in this place
I could sing unending songs
Of how you've saved my soul
& I could dance a thousand miles
Because of your great love
& I could sing unending songs
Of how you've saved my soul
& I could dance a thousand miles
Because of your great love

Healing Lyrics




You've returned like some unsung hero
With nothing in your hand
How can a flower grow in the desert
How can a boy grow in a wasteland
There is healing
A time will come when the pain will go
A time will come when love will flow
A time will come when your heart will know
Healing
Someone paints you a view of Heaven
Someone touched your hand
There can be life for your warrior spirit
There can be freedom in this wasteland
There is healing
I watch you wait for the pain to go
I watch you wait for love to flow
I want you wait for your heart to know
Healing

Here We Go Lyrics




He never knew the meaning
Of love until he'd seen her
Oh man, she really drives him crazy
And she knows what she's doing
Heart aches, he can't fight the feeling
And won't stop until he tells her
She is his one and only lady
And you got to believe me
[Pre-Chorus Build]:
It's what he said, what he said
This is what he said
[Chorus]:
If you take my hand
We can run away
Stay close to my love
'Cause here we go again
Don't let go of my hand
So we can fly away
If you trust in my love
This will never end
She never did believe in
Love until she'd seen him
He's got to be pretty amazing
For her to share what she's feeling
She takes the chance, time for living
If she wants to get with him
She said you're gonna think I'm crazy
But you've got to believe me
[Pre-Chorus Build]:
It's what she said, what she said
This is what she said
[Chorus]:
Seems like we spend so much time
Driving this to its knees
I guess I won't really mind
If we're living for you and me
And this is what we said
(Chorus)

Hold The Intangible Lyrics




You've heard the stories
You've read the message in the pages
You consider crucifixion: is it fact or fiction for the ages
Did He really appear
Like they say that He did
Does it conquer the fear
Did He die so that we could live
You'd like to think that it's true
Oh, But you want to hold the intangible
To fashion the darkness into familiar shape
To see with your eyes
To know in your mind
Oh ye of so little faith
Only the heart, can hold the intangible
There is a chamber
In the soul of the believer
It holds reason in defiance
The demanding hand of science may not enter
But let's just suppose how it would be
To trade all you know
For one ounce of true belief
Then you'd learn the peace of that place
Oh, But you want to hold the intangible
To fashion the darkness into familiar shape
To see with your eyes
To know in your mind
Oh ye of so little faith
Only the heart, can hold the intangible
But let's just suppose how it would be
To trade all you know
For one ounce of true belief
Then you'd learn the peace of that place
Oh, But you want to hold the intangible
To fashion the darkness into familiar shape
To see with your eyes
To know in your mind
Oh ye of so little faith
Only the heart, can hold the intangible
You want to hold the intangible
Oh, you want to hold the intangible.

How Can I Help But Sing Lyrics




Ps 32, Rom 8:31-39
V1
Every moment is a miracle
And when you stop to think about it
Without the breath of heaven
Where would we all be
Everyday is a gift from you Lord
That's why praises I must bring
When I look at all you've done for me
How can I help but sing
V2
What a mighty love you give to us
Magnificent and pure
My mind just can't conceive it all
But of one thing I am sure
Only you alone are worthy
Giver of all good things
Your grace is so amazing
How can I help but sing
Chorus
Redeemer Savior Jesus
Holy Spirit King
With a humble heart I lift my voice
This is the gift I bring
As I cry out for your mercy
I hear the Heavens ring
My soul is overflowing
How can I help but sing
V3
You echo through eternity
Your song cannot be denied
That's why I call you Savior
The Risen Crucified
Alpha and Omega
Beginning and the End
Soon we'll behold His Glory
How can I help but sing

How Long Has It Been Lyrics




(words and music by Mosie Lister)
Also performed by Brooklyn Mass Choir, Jim Reeves, Talley Trio, Faron Young, Hovie Lister, Old Friends Quartet, Rev. Billy Graham)
How long has it been
Since you talked with the Lord
And told Him your heart's hidden secrets?
How long sinc eyou prayed?
How long since you stayed
On your kneeds till the light shone through?
How long has it been
Since you knew that He cared for you?
How long has it been
Since you knelt by your bed
And prayed to the Lord up in heaven?
How long since you knew
that He'd answer you and would
Keep you th elong night through?
How long has it been
Since you woke with the dawn
And felt that the day's worth the living?
Can you call Him your friend?
How long has it been?
Since you knew that He cared for you?

I Believe Lyrics




By Carolyn Arends
Monday I felt your hand upon my shoulder
Tuesday I felt nothing at all
Today my answers have all turned to questions
And the tears of frustration fall
Stranded in this twilight between infinite and finite
How I long to see more clearly yet I cannot deny
That I believe that You are someone to believe in
'Cause I believe in love
And I believe that you will
Help my unbelieving
And I believe that's enough
Of all the things I thought
I knew for certain
Only a very few remain
Yet someplace deeper
Than my fear and doubting
I am still calling out your name
So maybe there is no proof
That can lead me to the whole truth
But this mystery of knowing I cannot deny
That I believe that You are someone to believe in
'Cause I believe in love
And I believe that you will
Help my unbelieving
And I believe that's enough

I Smile Lyrics




Lost and all alone
Looking for a reason for being
In this crazy world
Trying to go on
Looking for the answers
To the questions
And there You were
From the moment You appeared
Everything became so clear
I'm so glad that You're here, Lord
I smile when I think about
The way You've turned my life around
I smile when I think about
The happiness in You I've found
I'm so amazed at what Your love has done
And when I think the best is yet to come
I smile!
I smile!
Wandering the dark
Lost in the confusion
I thought I was losing my mind for sure
I searched with all my heart
Looking for direction
Something to believe in
And there You were
And You were reachign down to me
You were everything I needed
I'm so glad You found me, Lord
'Cause You've turned all my gray skies
To the brightest blue, yes, You did
And my life feels like sunshine
And it's because of You
All because of You.. I smile

I'm In The Way Lyrics




You sit and stare out at the sky
And think of ways to fake a smile
But life is never what it seems
Sometimes it only takes a while
Chorus:
I'm in the way of fallin' down
I won't let you go that far now
I'm in the way of fallin' down
I won't let you go that far now
I won't let you go
You think that hope was left behind
I picked it up a mile ago
I am running close behind
So don't give up and don't let go
[CHORUS]
I'm in the way
I'm in the way
I'm in the way
I'm in the way
I won't let you go now
[CHORUS]
I'm in the way of fallin' down
I won't let you go that far now
I'm in the way of fallin' down
I won't let you go now
I'm in the way

Irish Day Lyrics




About Columba, one of the first to bring the Gospel to the British Isles
Sand as white as snow
Swirls like smoke around my feet
And a sky that turns in a moment
From blue to grey
All these things I see
On an Irish day
It is here that time has granted
That the light
Should still burn on
It was here a seed was planted
In the brave heart of an Irish son
Here before my time
Walked men of faith and truth
In a land that was dark
They followed the way
Bringing sweet light
On an Irish day
It is here that time has granted
That the light
Should still burn on
It was here a seed was planted
In the brave heart of an Irish son
Here I kneel upon this ground
Love can heal
When truth is found

Jealous Kind Lyrics




I built another temple to a stranger
I gave away my heart to the rushing wind
I set my course to run right into danger
I sought the company of fools instead of friends
Chorus:
You know I've been unfaithful
With lovers in lines
While you're turning over tables
With the rage of a jealous kind
I chose the gallows to the aisle
Thought that love would never find
Hanging ropes will never keep you
And your love of a jealous kind
Love of a jealous kind
Tryin' to jump away from rock that keeps on spreading
Solace in the shift of the sinking sand
I'd rather feel the pain all too familiar
Than be broken by a lover I don't understand
'cause I don't understand
[CHORUS]
Love of a jealous kind, yeah
Love of a jealous kind
Love of a jealous kind
One hundred other lovers, more, one hundred other altars
If I should slow my pace and finally subject me to grace
And love that shames the wise
Betrays the hearts deceit and lies
And breaks the back of foolish pride
[CHORUS]
Love of a jealous kind
Love of a jealous kind
Love of a jealous kind

Katie-Lynn Lyrics




Katie-Lynn, you've always lived your life out loud
You know that's something I have always loved you for
Katie-Lynn, this one has brought you to the ground
Katie-Lynn, we all feel we've let you down
Katie-Lynn, I am unsure of what to say
'Cause you and I both know it's been too long
Katie-Lynn, it finally came to me today
Katie-Lynn, I didn't take the time to pray
So all the words you heard were bouncing
Bouncing off of you
And all the lines drawn in to save you
Were just getting in the way of love
And did you ever believe what we were saying?
And can I blame you?
'Cause how transparent was I, were you looking at me?
Katie-Lynn, you've always had those dancing gypsy eyes
And a spirit that longed to try its wings
Petite ouseau, you flew into a clouded sky
How could you see your good intentions wouldn't get you by
But you could rise upon the wings of the eagles
If you would only choose to leave the empty way you live
Could you see, could you see you don't have to prove yourself to me
Let it go, let your pain finally slide off your back
Down at His feet
'Cause all the love He shows is just bouncing
And all the hands we're reaching out are just getting in the way
And if it's gonna take more to hold you
To show you're loved in spite of you
Well, how transparent am I when you're looking at me?
So you can see I know you've chosen your own way
And it's hard but it's the road you've travelled on
And I pray my life more than these words
Will clearly say that Jesus loves you
He's loved you all along

Lesser Things Lyrics




Looks a lot like givin' up
Peace will bring is a bitter cup
Set our bodies down like offerings
While we pray to the God of the lesser things
If the wind should shake this house apart
The cradle hits the ground with a broken heart
We will say we never knew a thing
While we pray to the God of the lesser things
Chorus:
Is there grace for the wayward heart
Is there grace for the wayward heart
Grace, grace
Ash to ash and dust to dust
Steel on steel or rain to rust
What mortal breath blood money brings
Forth from the altar of the lesser things
Is there grace for the wayward heart
Is there grace for the wayward heart is there grace, grace
[CHORUS x 2]

Let You Down Lyrics




No one knows what goes on inside of your head
And everything seems to be ok.
And your the same as you've always been (your the same)
If I'd listened, would you have talked to me?
I don't wanna Let You Down,
But I can't even pick up myself.
I only wanted to make you proud,
But I don't think I can do this anymore.
When did this crowded room get so lonely?
And everyone keeps looking at me.
I'm tired (so tired) of faking my life (faking my life)
I'm so tired, I don't wanna feel this way.
I don't wanna Let You Down,
But I can't even pick up myself.
I only wanted to make you proud,
But I don't think I can do this anymore.
(do this anymore)
And you mean more, You mean so much more
And you mean more, You mean so much more
And you mean more, And you mean so much more
And you mean more, And you mean so much more
I don't wanna Let You Down,
But I can't even pick up myself.
I only wanted to make you proud,
But I don't think I can do this anymore.
Song Description:
'We know a couple of people that had attempted suicide in the time that we were working on this album. One was successful, one wasn't. Its a plea to people that are feeling so lost. You mean so much more, not only to the people that love you, but to the God that created you. This world is just not worth it.' - Sonny Sandoval (P.O.D.)

Lift My Eyes Lyrics




Throwing off the fetters and working on a smile
Because it's time that I felt better oh than I have in a while
I want to say I need You--don't leave until I try
'Cause I've been holding onto shadows, holding them inside
And they come from what I've learned in life
And they put my faith to the test
Testing my drive, pulling me under
But hope won't be kept down forever
Lift my eyes
I've seen light lost to darkness
But You made a promise
So lift my eyes
Trusting You will be faithful
I'll do all that I'm able
Believing there's freedom in a life lived forgiven
No room here for the both of you but who should I ask to go?
One holding out my pardon, one holding all I've ever known
Love tells me without speaking resonating in my soul
With a light that's ever reaching, ever letting me go
And some things make me want to hide from life
And some things put my faith to the test
Testing my drive and it's not over
Oh no it's not nearly finished yet
Lift my eyes
I've seen light lost to darkness
But You made a promise
So lift my eyes
Trusting You will be faithful
I'll do all that I'm able
Believing there's freedom in a life lived forgiven

Little Did I Know Lyrics




I had an angel that sat on my shoulder,
Seems like everybody's got one,
I had the devil waiting on standby,
For when I wanted to have some fun
Thought that I was living forever,
I thought that my smile would get me in,
Never felt the wind that was coming,
Never thought the party would end
No, no, no, no...
Chorus:
Little did I know
That you were all I needed
Little did I see
Until you opened up my eyes
Little did I know
That one prayer could reach you
Little did I know
That you even cared
I had my daddy wrapped 'round my finger
I never made my momma cry
Nothin but smiles on the outside
But all the while living a lie
If you ask me am I going to heaven,
I said you know I've been a good good girl
I'm gonna spend all my money on makeup
And a find a boy who will buy me the world
Chorus
Little did I know
That you loved me before I even met you
I didn't see beyond myself
But I couldn't fight forever
Because you are so easy to trust
And now we play together
My life has just begun

Live Life Lyrics




As the years have passed me by
I have laughed and I have cried
I have so many things that I regret
And I have seen what it means
To take a stand and to believe
To hold every given moment close to me
But nothing compares to Your love
The love You gave to me
Live life, live free
You cut the chains that once held me
You held the key, opened up eternity
Your mercy and sweetness when I felt so worthless
You broke down my walls and made me see
Since I heard Your name
I have never been the same
Jesus, You're so precious to me
Beautiful Savior, Redeemer and Healer
You're everything that I'll ever need
Nothing compares to Your love
The blood You shed to me
It's more beautiful than diamonds and pearls
More mysterious than when a boy meets a girl
It's deeper than an ocean of blue shining
Down just to reach to you
It's more heavenly than angels with wings
More musical than voices and strings
It makes you feel like dancing again,
Makes you want to sing

Living For You Lyrics




There was a time when I'd believe in anything but you,
I closed my eyes and let You in,
Ready to let my life begin,
It just hit me, couldn't ignore it,
Heard your voice calling, now I know it!
I wanna see Your face,
I wanna speak Your name,
I wanna tell the whole world how my life has changed,
I'm gonna lift my voice,
Ever to sing Your praise,
As long as I'm alive know that I
I'm living for You.
Lord, here I stand before You now,
I want to give You everything,
No matter what may come my way,
You give me a smile they can't take away.
Holding onto all You brought me though,
You're the stregnth that I'll always cling to!
I wanna see Your face,
I wanna speak Your name,
I wanna tell the whole world how my life has changed,
I'm gonna lift my voice,
Ever to sing Your praise,
As long as I'm alive know that I
I'm living for You.
Some may question what is right,
In my heart I can't deny,
Once I was blind but now I see,
You have my soul and I am Your for eternity!
Oh, Lord, I wanna see Your face,
I always wanna sing Your praise,
I wanna be the first to say,
Forever I'm living for only You!
I wanna see Your face,
I wanna speak Your name,
I wanna tell the whole world how my life has changed,
I'm gonna lift my voice,
Ever to sing Your praise,
As long as I'm alive know that I
I'm living for You.
I wanna see Your face,
I wanna speak Your name,
I wanna tell the whole world how my life has changed,
I'm gonna lift my voice,
Ever to sing Your praise,
As long as I'm alive know that I
I'm living for You.

Lonely People Lyrics




This is for all the lonely people
Thinkin' that life has passed them by
Don't give up until you drink from the silver cup
Ride that highway in the sky
This is for all the single people
Thinkin' that life has left them dry
Don't give up until you drink from the silver cup
You never know until you try
And I'm on my way
Yes, I'm on my way
Well, I'm on my way back home
This is for all the lonely people
Thinkin' that life has passed them by
Don't give up until you drink from the silver cup
Should never take you down or never give you up
You never know until you try
'cause I'm on my way
Yes, I'm on my way
Yeah, I'm on my way back home
Yes, I'm on my way
Yeah, I'm on my way

Love Is A Cross Lyrics




Rom 6:-11
I've heard it said that Love is blind
It's never afraid, patient and kind
I've heard it said Love's all you need
And that it is a many splendored thing
I've heard people sing of Love at first sight
And how it's so wrong, and how it's so right
It lifts you up, it lets you down
But I have found...
Chorus
Love is a Cross
And Love let it be
Love is saving you
Love is saving me
The blood and the nails
A body so bruised
A Holy heart was broken
That's how he chose to prove
Love is a Cross
I've read that Love is just a myth
It's only a crutch, it doesn't exist
It's something the world cannot achieve
But I believe...
Repeat Chorus
Bridge
Peace is like a rushing river
Hope is paradise
Joy's an overflowing fountain
Love paid the price...Cause

Matthew The Man Lyrics




The tears that salt the earth
The wounds that bleed the land
The mark of ancient scars
These are the ways of man
The sound of restless souls
That pierce beyond the skies
The love that seeks release
The mind that tries to find
A place of peace
There is a place of peace
There is a sea of calm
Where the Spirit gently breathes
Life into the soul of man
And in another realm
Beyond the plains of Earth and time
Where angels gaze upon
The man of truth and light

My Heavenly Lyrics




Let the wind fall wild across my path
Even though we barely move, there's no turning back
There is a river; there is a road
Place of holy riches untold
It's where I'm s'pposed to be
Where I'm s'pposed to be
My heavenly, mmm-mmm
I know it never feels right
To let go of the safety we're used to holding so tight
But there is a lion underneath these skies
Though love cries (though love cries)
Though love cries, love will rise
My, my, my heavenly
So fly me higher, higher
Hope fill me, keep me here
Love lion, my, my...
So when I'm lonely or when I'm old
Life is more behind me
All the stories have been told
I can fix my gaze up through the clouds
Where I'm gonna be
Where I'm gonna be
My heavenly
My, my heavenly

New Day Lyrics

Oh, it's a new time
And there's a new way
I'm gonna live my life
All the old has, passed away
And the new has come
Thank God, It's a brand new day

Lookin' back on yesterday
There are things that I regret
But I put the past behind me
And I never will forget
You have covered my mistakes
And my broken dreams
Now over the horizon
I see the dawn is drawing near
And I realize the sun did rise
Tomorrow's finally here

Verse 2:
Now when I wake up thinkin'
'Bout the things I've done before
Memories I could not escape
Well they can't haunt me anymore
Now I can hold my head up high
'Cause I am not the same
You've changed my whole perspective
And with new eyes I see
I've become a new creation
'Cause of what You've done for me
(Chorus)
Bridge:
'Cause of what You've done for me
No, I am not ashamed
This heart of mine is finally free
I'll never be the same

New Kind Of Love Lyrics




II Cor 5:17-21
Ashes to ashes
Dust to dust
It was the desert of my days
There was no one left to trust
A million miles of climbing
Above this great abyss
A vista lay before me
What was it I had missed
There was no where left to go
I stood there looking up
I found myself out in the storm
When the lighting finally struck
There's a new kind of love
That's taking over
A new kind of love
Inside of me
There's a new kind of love
That's taken over
Making me the man I am made to be
A new kind of Love.
Listening to voices instead of just your heart
Will turn you into something
You can be who you are
That's how it was for me
That's the way it was for me
I'm a man with no regrets
Mistakes have all been swept away
In God's forgetfulness.
To all the lost and empty ones
Who can not find their place
The one who rescued me
Can help you find the way
There's a new kind of love
It's taken over me
A new kind of love
Inside of me
There's a new kind of love
That's taken over
Making me the man I am made to be
A new kind of love.

No You Lyrics




Feelin' so crazy lately
When it seems that You're not around
The sun and the moon shine bright
But my eyes are all Yours now
Don't know how I lived with out You
I don't remember how it used to feel
Lord, I can't imagine if I had no You to hold me
CHORUS:
Where would I go with no You to run to
No You to hold me when I am afraid?
Who would I be with no You beside me?
I oughta know it by now without You there's no me
Ohhh, there's no me
Lord, when I need You, You're always here
To play through the laughter, love through the tears
And when my heart seems so far away
Into Your arms is where I wanna stay
I try to find the words to tell You
All the things my heart's been telling me
I don't wanna know how it feels to have no You to love me
CHORUS
Where would I go with no You to run to?
No You to hold me when I am afraid?
Where would I be with no You beside me?
I oughtta know it by now without you...
CHORUS

Not The Only One Lyrics




Everyone keeps saying this is only a phase
I got so much on my mind I don't know what I should take to heart
Where's my heart?
Had too much fun in high school and in college the same
Never living up to my potential, trying to live life my way
What's my way?
I can't pretend that life is fair everyday
Or that faith comes easy
I'm wondering what it is you're so afraid to say
'Cause I'm not the only one
Who thinks so
I'm not the only one
Who thinks so
It's never ending; stop pretending you're not afraid
The human condition your ambition so quickly steals away, everyday
But God I know you're listening God I know you can see
All the things that war inside us all the things we're trying to believe
You got me on my knees
And I can't pretend that life is fair everyday
Or that faith comes easy
I'm wondering what it is you're so afraid to say
Looking in the eyes of the people passing me by
I know I'm not the only one who thinks so
But I'm caught between faith and a hard place
What's with the long face
'Cause I'm not the only one
Who thinks so
I'm not the only one
Who thinks so

Not To Us Lyrics




The cross before me the world behind
No turning back, raise the banner high
It's not for me, it's all for You
Let the heavens shake and split the sky
Let the people clap their hands and cry
It's not for us, it's all for You
Not to us, but to Your Name be the glory
Not to us, but to Your Name be the glory
Our hearts unfold before You throne
The only place for those who know
It's not for us, It's all for You
Send Your holy fire on this offering
Let our worship burn for the world to see
It's not for us, it's all for You
The earth is shaking, the mountains shouting
It's all for You
The waves are crashing, the sun is raging
It's all for You
The universe spinning and singing
It's all for You
The children dancing, dancing, dancing
It's all for You, it's all for You
Our all for You

One Of These Days Lyrics




It's been so long, said it's been too long
Can't remember when I've felt so known
You're so warm; shelter me from the storm
And the fears that are just so cold
They're telling me things get messy when you care
Things are messy everywhere
And don't I know it, don't I show it
Every time I look away
'cause what can I do what can I say
To help myself
Or to help anybody else?
You meet me in my need
You bring new life to me
And you go beyond what I feel
Your life brought more than freedom
Your love brought time just what I needed
To see I needed You
One of these days it will be easier to mean what I say
If I remember each and every day
That this world is not my home and I never walk alone
And before time began my days were known by You
[instrumental]
You meet me in my need
You bring new life to me
And you go beyond what I feel
Your life brought more than freedom
Your love brought time just what I needed
To see I needed You
One of these days it will be easier to mean what I say
If I remember each and every day
That this world is not my home and I never walk alone
And before time began my days were known by You

Only Alive Lyrics




I'm a fair-weather friend
I'm a colorless view
But I'm willin' to make a deal
If you think you can make some faith here inside
I'll drive off and marry you
Chorus:
I'm only alive with you
I can't get by and I won't get through
So put me in the river and let me say I do
I'm only alive with you
You're a sight for sore eyes
And a newborn cry
In a year where there are so few
If you throw me a line, I'll show you in time
I'm fallin' in love with you
[CHORUS]
Though my heart has been torn
The loves I have worn
And I'm tempted by them ever still
I tremble inside when you walk in the room
You hold my affections and will

Overflow Lyrics




Here I bring my stains and crowns
Gentle river wash me now
Your love is deeper than I know
Your ways higher than I can go
Lead me in Your holiness
I will follow, I confess
Glory is the song I sing
Your life is living me
And where would I be
Without You, without You?
Where would I be
Without You?
I will bow before the cross
Cherish my Redeemer's cost
There is nothing I can do
But only stand amazed by You
Mercy new with every day
Wrapped up in Your arms of grace
Nothing more, You're all I need
Your life is living me
Like a waterfall
You fill my heart and overflow
Like a candle flame
You light me way
And lead me as I go
Spirit overflow
Let me overflow

Prodigal Lyrics




Luke 15:11-32
V1
The car door slammed, she drove away
Tears fell down like pouring rain
The words she spoke they cut you like a knife
"I hate you and I don't want you in my life."
Now you think about her all the time
As the days turn into years
You pray that God will keep her safe
And you wonder if He hears
Then a voice breaks through the silence
Tears fall on the phone
She said "I'm sorry that I hurt you
I wanna come back home."
Chorus
When the prodigal returns
Tears of joy will flow
And everyone will know
That the Grace of God is real
When the prodigal returns
The bridges that were burned
Will be built again by faith
And it's always worth the wait
When the prodigal returns
V2
I find myself too many times
Running away from what I know is right
I go my own way always to find
The grass is never greener on the other side
Every dark and lonely road I've known
Has lead me back to you
As your voice speaks to this rebel heart
I know what I must do

Rainbows Lyrics




Phil 2:1-4, Rom 15:5-7
V1
Imagine a world
Where all the boys and girls
Never see the color of skin
Imagine their eyes
When they see what's inside
The beauty and wonder within
We can see it
If we'll be it
Chorus
Oh, I keep on looking for Rainbows (of Love)
Rainbows Red, Yellow, Black, and White
Oh, I keep on looking for a Rainbow (above me)
I can see it though it's nowhere in sight
I can see it stretching out across the sky
V2
You know if I could
Surely I would
Reach across the pages of time
And I would erase
All of the hate
Write a song of love on each line
A Kaleidoscope
With only shades of hope
Repeat Chorus
Bridge
Why do we look for the things that divide us
It is such a waste of our time
When will we look for the things inside
That bring us all together-Life will be so much better
The sun would shine

Redemption Lyrics




We made it to a strange town
Going down the wrong road
Like any story retold
Couldn't find a common ending
We're way gone, be gone, looking for our own way
We needed a distraction
You said you were redemption
We knew it as a wrong turn
We couldn't know the things we'd gain
When we reach the other border
We look out way down past the road we came from
We're looking at redemption
It was hidden in the landscape
Of loss and love and fire and rain
Never would come this way
Looking for redemption
We were looking out past the road we came from
Looking at redemption
Hidden in the landscape
Of loss and love and fire and rain
Never would have come this way
Looking for redemption
In the eyes of sorrow, eyes of rage
What a sordid histories they played
The drama of redemption
Redemption

River Lyrics




When I was held up in chains
The river was free
When I was covered in stains
The river was clean
When I was losing my way
The river found me
I can see the river
I can feel the river
I'm letting go of all I hold onto
Let it wash away
When we were broken inside
The river was love
When we were thirsty and dry
You were more than enough
When we were drowning in lies
The river saved us
I'm dancing in the river
And I'll be here forever
I'm letting go of everything but You
Carry me away
Carry me away...

River Flows Lyrics




Throwing light into a darkened cold
Hands that toil until the night grows old
Pure devotion of a faithful heart
That knows Your Spirit
And the river flows
Through eternity
Down through the ages the Truth will survive
Turning the pages the Light cannot die
Down through the ages the Truth will survive
Pages of eternal mystery
Where the Spirit knows what the eye cannot see
Images of Earth and Heaven
Mysteriously drawn together
And the river flows
Through eternity
Down through the ages the Truth will survive
Turning the pages the Light cannot die
Down through the ages the Truth will survive

River Of Love Lyrics




By T-Bone Burnett
There's a river of love that runs through all time
There's a river of grief that floods through our lives
It starts when a heart is broken into
By the thief of belief in anything that's true
But there's a river of love that runs through all time
There's a river of love that runs through all time
There's a river of tears that flows through our eyes
We fight through the night for freedom as it fades
Into a jail where we fail everytime we make a break
But there's a river of love that runs through all time
I had to run before I knew how to crawl
The first step was hard
But I have had trouble with them all
But now the night grows darker
And the day grows dim
'Cause I know I never will see you again
And I almost made you happy
There's a river of love that runs through all time
There's a river of fire that burns with no light
The flame is the pain of dreams gone up in smoke
From the lies we deny and breathe until we choke
There's a river of love that runs through all time
(c) 1986 Henry Burnett Music

Rose Is A Rose Lyrics




Your at a stand still, Your at an impass
Your mountain of dreams, seems harder to climb
By those who have made you feel like an outcast,
Cause you dare to be different, so they're drawing the line.
They say you're a fool they feed you resistance
They tell you you'll never go very far
But they'll be the same ones that stand in the distance
Alone 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've yet to see what I see in you
But 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
And a rose is a rose, is a rose.
Deal with the scoffers, well thats part of the bargain,
They heckle from back rows and they bark at the moon
Their 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
It dont matter, a rose by any name is still a rose
Ooh, a rose by any name is still a rose.

Say Hello Lyrics




Oh, yeah, yeah, Come on!
Walked in the place, and everybody looked down at we
Disgust on their face, but we don't mind cause we're too busy smiling
Never get in my face, that's not the way to understanding
And ignorance is blind, so this time, this time we gonna let it ride
I know, that I know, that I know, that this is,
I know, that I know, that I know, that this is real
I hate to disappoint you, but this is how I feel.
And let me introduce to you myself,
Say hello to the bad guy.
Can't plead my case, the jury's out won't give me a chance,
Cause I don't think the same.
They shut down the court, kidnapped the judge.
Now they sit in his place,
And who are you to make up what's right, deciding my fate?
I know your kind, I have, and I will carry on.
I know, that I know, that I know, that this is,
I know, that I know, that I know, that this is real
I hate to disappoint you, but this is how I feel.
And let me introduce to you myself,
Say hello to the bad guy.
We're here to make you feel better about yourself
We're here to introduce you to yourself
Say hello to the bad guy!
I hate to disappoint you, but this is how I feel.
And let me introduce to you myself,
Say hello to the bad guy.
We're here to make you feel better about yourself
We're here to introduce you to yourself
Say hello to the bad guy!
Song Description:
'This is to the people that live to see you fall. They bet all their chips on you to lose and to fail. They just don't want to see you win. The main lyric is, "Let me introduce you to yourself." I'm basically saying, "If I'm the bad guy, then who are you? The good guy? Why don't you worry about yourself?"' - Sonny Sandoval (P.O.D.)

Second Mile Lyrics




Matt 5:38-42, I Pet 1;22, Matt 10:42
Verse 1:
A single mom on the back row at a church outside of town
No one sits beside her her kids are kind of loud
She never misses a Sunday she does the best she can
Faith gives her the strength she needs to stand
Verse 2:
It's Monday morning her telephone rings
When She finally answers I begin to speak
My kids they know your kids from Sunday school they say
We wanted to know can your kids come and play
Chorus:
The second mile may be as simple as a smile
For a brokenhearted mother and a fatherless child
The second mile it starts with just one step
With the Father's help, we give ourselves
And we go the second mile
Verse 3:
You pass his house every morning
He sits there all alone
He rarely leaves that front porch
Since his wife's been gone
85 last Friday
There were no balloons or cake
What a difference some time with you could make
Chorus:
The Second mile may be as simple as a smile
For a brokenhearted husband who's been alone for awhile
The second mile starts with just one step
With the Father's help we give ourselves
Bridge:
The greatest love that ever was
Walked the longest road
When His Spirit lives in us
We have no choice we must go
The Second Mile
The Second Mile
Outro-The Second Mile it starts with just one step
With the Father's help we give of ourselves and go the second mile
Tag- My kids they know your kids from Sunday School they say (the second mile)
85 last Monday with no balloons or cake (the second mile)...

Show You Love Lyrics




"The world breaks every one and
Afterward many are strong at the broken places"
-- from "A Farewell to Arms" by Ernest Hemingway
The ice is thin enough for walkin'
The rope is worn enough to climb
Throat is dry enough for talkin'
World is crumblin', but I know why
World is crumblin', but I know why
Storm is wild enough for sailing
Bridge is weak enough to cross
This body frail enough for fighting
I'm home enough to know I'm lost
Home enough to know I'm lost
Chorus:
It's just enough to be strong
In the broken places, in the broken places
It's just enough to be strong
Should the world rely on faith tonight
Land unfit enough for planting
Barren enough to conceive
Poor enough to gain the treasure
Enough a cynic to believe
Enough a cynic to believe
[CHORUS]
Confused enough to know direction
Sun eclipsed enough to shine
Be still enough to finally tremble
See enough to know I'm blind
See enough to know I'm blind

Should the world rely on faith tonight
Should the world rely on faith tonight
Tonight

Sing Lyrics




I love the way
I love the way you carry on
You make me wanna say
You make me wanna sing another love song
Sing another love song
Sing another love song
Sing another love song
To you
Bury my head full of shame
You pick me up and say I look like you
Though it makes no sense to me
You make me believe that I could trust someone
That I could ever trust someone
I could ever trust someone
I could ever trust someone
I could ever trust someone
Sing another love song
Sing another love song
Sing another love song
Sing another love song
I walk through flame, I touch the fire
You know that I still burn for you
Flood water rain crash down
Soak the ground
Still I thirst for you
Still I thrist for you

Sing another love song
Sing another love song
Though it makes no sense to me
You make me wanna sing
Make me wanna sing

Sleeping Awake Lyrics




Reveal to me the mysteries
Can you tell me what it means
Explain the motions and metaphors
Unlock these secrets in me
Describe the vision, the meaning is missing
Won't anybody listen
Define the riddles of my mind
Nothing is really what it seems
[Chorus]:
Dreaming of Zion, awake
Sleeping awake
Dreaming of Zion, awake
Can't stop sleeping awake
Do you see what I see
Can you hear what I hear
Do you feel what I feel
Can't stop sleeping awake
Can you see it, the writing
Can you tell me what it means
Translate the symbols, enigma
Won't anybody listen
Prophecy, interpret the signs
Nothing is really what it seems
[Bridge]:
Do you see what I see
Can you hear what I hear
Do you see what I see
Can you hear what I hear
Do you feel like I feel
Can you dream like I dream...

So Close Lyrics




Don't you tell me how to feel
Every time your state your opinion
The obligation here is real
'Cause you know that I'd say anything for you
Well, if this is the kind of life you're happy to live then go on
But times are changing and I can see
I see now, I have to choose
It's turning me away from everything familiar
And casting me out on a sea I've never known
And all Your efforts to keep me safe
Just make me dependant
And out here when I need You most
You can't rebuke the wind that's tossing me
To reach this half-alive heart
He had to touch my eyes
To show me truth that's real to me
'Cause it speaks of all I've left behind
Coming alive is harder than anything I've tried
And fear, don't reach for me now
'Cause I'm so close, so close
Pretty stories of a Man who walked among the people
Healing anyone who could just believe in all He said He was
And the decision wasn't mine when it came
To what was right and wrong
But You would smile down on me
Whenever I could tell You what it was
But I can't deny the holy life of this Man
Whose death I deserve to die a thousand times
And realising what I need is always easier than changing
From what I've always been into who I need to be
To reach this half-alive heart
He had to touch my eyes
To show me truth that's real to me
'Cause it speaks of all I've left behind
Coming alive is harder than anything I've tried
And fear, don't reach for me now
'Cause I'm so close, so close

Some Kind Of Power Lyrics




Acts 2:1-47
V1
I love to tell the story
One peculiar night
When the Holy Rollers came to town
To help us see the light
They set it all up on a flatbed truck
It beat all I'd ever seen
The music played, the choir swayed
They shook the tambourines
The preacher talked about Jesus
And when I heard it all
I hit my knees, raised my hands
The fire started to fall
Chorus
Some Kind of Power
I just can't explain
Shaking me down from the inside out
Making me want to change
Some Kind of Power
It's a supernatural Thing
If it happens once you'll never be the same
It's some Kind of Power
V2
So I'm right here every Sunday
And I try to do my best
Then preacher tells that story
And it just won't let me rest
I want to wade out where it's deeper
Till I'm in way over my head
Till something shakes me up
And wakes my spirit from the dead
I've got peace and joy and love
And in my heart I know its real
But deep inside I long for something more
I just want to feel...
Chorus
Bridge
Elijah had his chariot, David had his stones
But just like Jeremiah I want fire in my bones

Sometimes Yes, Sometimes No Lyrics




Easy isn't what I'd call this
Who knows what easy means
The more I try to make this happen
The less it's clear to me
The hope that keeps me moving
Is in Your promises to me
And right now that's enough,
It's gonna have to be
Sometimes yes, sometimes no
Sometimes that's the way it goes
You're not giving any secrets away
Who's to know, who's to say
Sometimes it's hard to live this way
Holding on, letting go
When it's sometimes yes
And sometimes no
I wanna know just what it looks like
What the answer's gonna be
I wanna grab hold of something
To give me some security
And know it's You I'm hearing
Gently helping me to see
When everything I've prayed for
Is not Your will for me
Sometimes yes, sometimes no
Sometimes that's the way it goes
You're not giving any secrets away
Who's to know, who's to say
Sometimes it's hard to live this way
Holding on, letting go
When it's sometimes yes
And sometimes no
It's not poetic justice
That has me waiting all this while
It's the way a loving father
Deals with his child
So this is how I'm learning
Holding on and letting go
Sometimes yes and sometimes no
It's sometimes yes, sometimes no

Song Of Reconciliation Lyrics




Where there is love there is a peace
And in the cages that bind the bitter heart it is release
Hold it close to your chest, let it move and let it rest
For it is here to set your mind at ease
Where there is love there is a peace
Where there is hope there is a dream
To rise above, to remit and to redeem
To go back, to go where there's no hurt or anger there
To find the song that you once could sing
Where there is hope there is a dream
Where there is faith there is a chance
To alter the course and fight the winds of circumstance
Not to scar, but mend, not to break, but to bend
And not to know but to understand
Where there is faith there is a chance
Where there is hope there is a dream
Where there is love there is a peace

Suddenly Lyrics




Solo, lonely and afraid
Hold on, something's bound to break
Falling down, running from the promised land
Midnight, and I'm still awake
Don't feel right, haven't slept for days
I'm so tired my thoughts are getting weak
And I'm wired, can I get some peace?
(Chorus)
Suddenly you are here with me
Finding a reason to believe
I know you'll be here to the end of time
And when the night falls all around
My frightened heart the only sound
I know you'll be here to the end of time
Maybe it was my mistakes
That kept on pulling me away
I was still living yesterday
The message that I want to relay
Without Him, there's no other way
So don't try to make it on your own
When you're lost, He will lead you home
(Chorus)
Can't imagine life without your hand in mine
I can't believe I've lived this long without you
I know that You will find a purpose for my life
Beyond my wildest dreams, beyond what I can see
(Chorusx2)
Suddenly you're here and I'm not alone anymore
When the night falls 'round, I am not alone anymore

The Wonderful Cross Lyrics




When I survey the wondrous cross
On which the Prince of Glory died
My richest gain I count but loss
And pour contempt on all my pride
See from his head, his hands, his feet
Sorrow and love flow mingled down
Did ever such love and sorrow meet
Or thorns compose so rich a crown
O the wonderful cross, O the wonderful cross
Bids me come and die and find that I may truly live
O the wonderful cross, O the wonderful cross
All who gather here by grace draw near and bless
Your name
Were the whole realm of nature mine
That were an offering far too small
Love so amazing, so divine
Demands my soul, my life, my all

This Road Lyrics




All heavy laden acquainted with sorrow
May Christ in our marrow carry us home
From alabaster come blessings of laughter
A fragrance of passion and joy from the truth
Grant the unbroken tears ever flowing
From hearts of contrition only for You
May sin never hold true that love never broke through
For God's mercy holds us and we are His own
This road that we travel may it be the straight and narrow
God, give us peace and grace from You, all the day
Shelter with fire, our voices we raise still higher
God, give us peace and grace from You, all the day through
This road that we travel may it be the straight and narrow
God, give us peace and grace from You, all the day
Shelter with fire, our voices we raise still higher
God, give us peace and grace from You, all the day through

Trouble Is Lyrics




My wings don't sail me to the sky
On my own these wings won't fly
Jesus told me so
Still, I'm not so sure that I know
Can't find no rest for my soul
Can't find no rest on my own
Jesus told me so
Still, I'm not so sure that I know
Chorus:
Man, the trouble is
We don't know who we are instead
Man, the trouble is
We don't know who we are instead
I keep runnin' the other way
My heart ain't built to stay
My heart ain't built to stay
And the world just ain't that way
[CHORUS]
We don't know who we are instead
My heart ain't built to stay
I said, my heart, well, it ain't built to stay
Jesus told me so

Truly Amazing Lyrics




I see amazing, I feel it too
I wish you could meet her
She comes and goes and
When you see her you'll know
[Chorus]:
Love
Truly amazing
Love for the fallen
Heal the brokenhearted
I know amazing, I feel her too
I wish she could meet you
But if you don't have the time
She might run off and hide away

Unworthy Lyrics




Unworthy
by Marvin Sapp
Written by Michael Brooks
from album: I Believe
Chorus
I'm so unworthy Lord
You gave me life and life more abundantly
Filled me with song,
Gave me strength to go on
How unworthy Lord I am
Chorus
You bring laughter in sorrow,
Hope for tomorrow
My peace in the midst of my storm
You're my doctor in sickness
And I'm gonna be Your witness
Show me Your will from wrong
You're like the potter with clay,
Please mold me I pray
I want to be used as Your own
Filled me with song, gave me strength to go on
How unworthy Lord I am
I've been made worthy Lord,
Since You put Your hands on me
I've been made worthy Lord,
Your love has set me free
I lift my hands to You
For You've been so kind and true
All the praises, it belongs to You
Oh my Lord, yes it does

Valley Song (Sing Of Your Mercy) Lyrics




You have led me to the sadness
I have carried this pain
All my back bruised and nearly broken
I'm crying out to You
Chorus
I will sing of Your mercy
That leads me through valleys of sorrow
To rivers of joy
When death like a gypsy
Comes to steal what I love
I will still look to the heavens
I will still seek your face
But I fear you aren't listening
Because there are no words
Just the stillness and the hunger
For a faith that is yours
I will sing of Your mercy
That leads me through valleys of sorrow
To rivers of joy
Alleluia, alleluia
Alleluia, alleluia
While we wait for rescue
With our eyes tightly shut
Face to the ground using our hands
To cover the fatal cut
Though the pain is an ocean
Tossing us around, around, around
You have calmed greater waters
Higher mountains have come down

We Belong To Christ Lyrics




Ps 34:1-6, I Jn 3:1-3, Col 2:1-3:17
V1
Sometimes I feel like I'm on a wheel
And I'm spinning round,
Yeah I'm spinning round
I feel like I am on a mountain climb
And I'm falling down
Til I hit the ground
When I'm tumbling
I just can't stop the fall
I'm glad I know that somehow through it all
Chorus
We Belong to Christ
He is right by my side
He's been there loving me
Before there was time
Nothing I can do
To change his mind
We belong to Christ
We belong to Christ
V2
I find myself
At the wishing well
Throwing pennies in
Am I back again
Each time I pray I can hear him say
There's no need to doubt
He can work it out
Why do I worry
Try to understand
Like the children sing
The whole world is in his hands
Repeat Chorus
Bridge
He told us nothing could separate
Us from his perfect love
So we've got nothing to fear at all-at all
So walk on Keep walking on

What We Hope For Lyrics




Words and music by Carolyn Arends and Connie Harrington
I remember waiting up till it got dark
Searching till I found the brightest star
Making my wish with all my heart
But we grow up and so do all our dreams
Somehow without us even noticing
We set our sights on lesser things
Oh, to go back when we still believed
That what we hope for
Is not too much to ask for
And what we pray for
Isn't nearly big enough
'Cause what we dream of
Cannot compare to God's love
And what He wants for us is so much more
More than what we hope for
We start out so innocent and wise
Before we cut the world down to our size
We still have that wonder in our eyes
So maybe that's why Jesus said to come
With the faith we had when we were young
Trusting in a world beyond this one
Letting our imaginations run
'Cause what we hope for
Is not too much to ask for
And what we pray for
Isn't nearly big enough
What we dream of
Cannot compare to God's love
And what He wants for us is so much more
More than what we hope for
More than what we hope for

Wonderful Maker Lyrics




You spread out the skies over empty space
Said "let there be light"
Into a dark and formless world Your light
Was born
You spread out Your arms over empty hearts
Said "let there be light"
Into a dark and hopeless world Your Son
Was born
You made the world and saw that it was good
You sent Your only Son for You are good
What a wonderful Maker
What a wonderful Savior
How majestic Your whispers
And how humble Your love
With a strength like no other
And the heart of a Father
How majestic Your whispers
What a wonderful God
No eye has fully seen, how beautiful the cross
And we have only heard
The faintest whispers of how great You are
