A Burn Or A Shiver Lyrics

When we hear it we need to listen close.
Yea we feel it, first a draft and then a wind.
It will feel like a burn or a shiver.
Yea we feel it. It's a pull to the earth.
Like a hand on the top of your head
You feel safe here, you can dance here.
There's a love that surrounds the room.
It's a quiet sound that's screaming out
And we fall under the weight of glory.
Can you hear it? A wave before it breaks?
Can you feel it? A calm before the storm?
Let's keep this passion flowing.
Like a child I wait for love.

Above All Lyrics

Above all powers, above all kings
Above all nature and all created things
Above all wisdom and all the ways of man
You were here before the world began
Above all kingdoms, above all thrones
Above all wonders the world has ever known
Above all wealth and treasures of the earth
There's no way to measure what you're worth
Crucified
Laid behind a stone
You lived to die
Rejected and alone
Like a rose
Trampled on the ground
You took the fall
And thought of me
Above all
Above all powers, above all kings
Above all nature and all created things
Above all wisdom and all the ways of man
You were here before the world began
Above all kingdoms, above all thrones
Above all wonders the world has ever known
Above all wealth and treasures of the earth
There's no way to measure what you're worth
Crucified
Laid behind a stone
You lived to die
Rejected and alone
Like a rose
Trampled on the ground
You took the fall
And thought of me
Above all
Crucified
Laid behind a stone
You lived to die
Rejected and alone
Like a rose
Trampled on the ground
You took the fall
And thought of me
Above all
Like a rose
Trampled on the ground
You took the fall
And thought of me
Above all

All Is Well Lyrics

Words and music by Carolyn Arends
Bones will ache
Hearts will break
When living takes its toll
Tears will fall
Still all is well with my soul
Storms will come
Hide the sun
And leave us numb with cold
Rains will fall
Still all is well with my soul
Chorus
All is well that ends well
And in the end I'll be with You I know
All is well that ends well
And so...all is well with my soul
Eyes will see
Tragedies
And mysteries unfold
Night will fall
Still all is well with my soul
Repeat Chorus
(C) 1995 Edward Grant/running arends music (admin. by Reunion Music Publishing) (ASCAP)

All That I Am Lyrics

I feel a burning, deep inside of me
I feel your Spirit, it's moving around me
I hear Your voice, You're calling me closer
I know that You're here, You're calling me closer
And I will...
Chorus
Love You with all of my heart
Jesus I'll love You with all of my mind
Jesus I'll love You with all of my souls
Jesus I'll love You with all that I am
I know that You hear me when I say my prayers
I know that You're with me even when I'm all alone
When I close my eyes, You're calling me close
When I pull away, You're pulling me closer
And I will...
Chorus
Love You with all of my heart
Jesus I'll love You with all of my mind
Jesus I'll love You with all of my souls
Jesus I'll love You with all that I am
You are holy, Lord God Almighty
You are holy, Lord God Almighty
Who was and is and will soon come again
Lord you are and now You're coming again
Just like you said, You're coming again
And I will...
Chorus
Love You with all of my heart
Jesus I'll love You with all of my mind
Jesus I'll love You with all of my souls
Jesus I'll love You with all that I am

Altar of Ego Lyrics

Words and music by Carolyn Arends
I am talking too loud when there's so much I should be hearing
I am walking too proud when I know a fall is nearing
I am thinking too much for someone who knows too little
I am spinning so fast, I'm landing in the middle
Of this cold familiar place where I struggle to save face
And I lose all of the things that matter
Chorus
I don't want to be here again
Bowed at the altar of ego
I've sacrificed most everything
Here at the altar of ego
The altar of ego
I've got just four friends I will let advise me
Me, myself, and I and the evil twin inside me
We talk each other up and we bring each other down
'Cause there's nothing we like more than the ever present sound
Of the voice inside my head, once again it's led
To losing all the things that matter
Repeat Chorus
I need a touch of love, I need a thrust of grace
A push, a shove, a slap in the face
I have gazed too long at the person in the mirror
As I turn away, I'm finding things are cleared
I will set my sights on Someone so much higher
Not on what I want, but on what I require
To travel to the place where at last I can embrace
All the things that really matter
Repeat Chorus
(C) 1995 Sunday Shoes Music (ASCAP)

Always Lyrics

May joy come in the morning
May the sparrow sing of it all day
May peace float down like an autumn leaf
Gather in piles for children to play
May forgiveness be an open field
May this be the land that I trod
May my soul be ever restless
'Till I find my rest in God
May the afternoon flow slow like the river
Wading in pools, and washing my feet
May sleep be fitful and dreams delightful
In waking to You, may my spirit be sweet
May the windows be wide open
To let the breezes blow through
May that wind be the very spirit
That lifts my prayers to You
CHORUS:
May I always love You,
Always love You
May I always love You,
Always
May my faith remain a mystery
Something so real that I cannot touch
May patience be as strong as silence
Praying You'll give me, give me this much
Let trust be a wild beast
The lion beside which I'll lie down
And He comes to me gently
A broken king with a royal crown
CHORUS
May our weeping turn to fits of laughter
May His pleasure be the treasure we're after
May hope take root like a mighty oak,
Bracing itself in the snow
Knowing Spring will come
The promised Son
Warming the earth, and letting us grow
CHORUS
About this Song:
We grew up on a heritage of hymns, and they grounded us in vivid images of our faith. "Always" was an attempt to reach back to them with one hand while hanging on to the present with the other. The result was something like a prayer.

Angelic In Heart Lyrics

You are a jewel, virtue, treasure.
Angelic in heart, painting grace.
With every passing moment,
I'm falling in love with you.
You're my morning song and evening lullaby.
Your kindness is killing me.
Your soft words will be my ending.
You are the one I love the most.
It's you I'll love forever.
You are the one that I adore.
With your extraordinary love
I'm finding it so easy
To fall in love with you.
This three-strand cord shall not be broken
If Jesus is the center.
And as this ring has no end,
Neither shall my love.

At The Foot Of The Cross Lyrics

Words and music by Ray Boltz and Lawrence Chewning
They were watching from a distance
And they could not
Take their eyes from You
You were bleeding
They were weeping
Faithful sisters, they had followed you
They did not understand
They could not see
They were mourning their loss
As the sky turned black
And the Earth turned red
At the foot of the cross
He was standing near your mother
They were so close
They could hear you sighing
All around them angry voices
Pierced the darkness
And you were dying
But they would not leave
They lingered there
No matter the cost
They were staying
And they were praying
At the foot of the cross
CHORUS:
Keep me near the cross
Near the cross
May I never stray so far
That I cannot see
What flowed down for me
At the foot of the cross
Now I'm standing in your presence
And I cannot take my eyes from you
You have risen I'm forgiven
Precious Saviour, oh I worship you
No I'm not looking back
I've heard your voice
And I'm staying here
I've made my choice
For now it's real, now I kneel
At the foot of the cross
CHORUS (repeat 2X)

Audrey, Start The Revolution Lyrics

Maybe tonight we'll get back together
Sound the alarms, break all the levers
These streets are ours
Our anthem rings
You'd know the truth
If these walls could sing
Amateur youth sling down the signs
Gather the masses, friends of mine
I've got your back if you got my hand
This isn't over it just began
If this isn't love (This isn't love)
This is the closest I've ever been
Do you think we have a chance tonight?
As streetlights sing on Audrey's song
Remind your parents we're tomorrow
Lead with morals and we'll follow
When they wake up they'll see
That youth fades
And glory days deceive
What are you waiting for? Let's move on this
Time is of essence, like your kiss
So say you're in with cards down
And guns drawn, this is it
If this isn't love (This isn't love)
This is the closest I've ever been
Do you think we have a chance tonight
As streetlights sing on Audrey's song
And now it stops at this
We could take it all if only we would risk
You can be what can conceive
Red letters kill your disbelief
We all make mistakes sometimes
We all have failed where we stand tonight
Look past, learn, and move on
We're all here, you're not the only one
If this isn't love (This isn't love)
This is the closest I've ever been
Do you think we have a chance tonight?
As streetlights sing on Audrey's song

Autobahn Lyrics

And we're driving just as fast as we can
And we're racing to outrun the wind
It's just me and you and you and me so wild eyed
So young, bright eyed and free
And we're trying to get out of here
And a small town romance draws ever near
And I swear we're in a movie
The highlight comes when you kiss me
The stereo sings our song
And we don't hesitate to sing along
Drive to dream to live, we could see the world tonight
Here to hope tomorrow we could see the world
And we're miles from the middle of nowhere
And neither of us seems to care
And that's why I love you so, shut your mouth girl
No one has to know
And time seems to drip like Dali
And neither of us has a place to be
So for once and forever tell me all of your dreams

Bandwagon Lyrics

V 1: I see the same things so many times
People search but only use their minds
Search for something they cannot see, therefore they can't believe
They want a promise that will never lie
What they desire can't be seen by the naked eye
They must take a step of faith & believe in the unseen.
CHORUS: Do you want a ticket on the train to Paradise, even though you can't see the track
Trust him & he'll lead you all the way to Paradise
And you'll never have to look back
V 2: Although thimes seem hard & I know,
It's hard to walk when you don't know where to go
The valley of the blind is what you seem to go through all of the time
Well again, again, again my friend, take heed to what I say
Put your trust in the Lord I know He'll show you the way
Be ye strong in this hour, & do rely on his power
You want to live you must recieve, even what you can't conceive
Trust in God, believe me you'll have life I'll agree
It's sometimes rough, riding this ride, but in the end it's life divine.
CHORUS
RAP: Oh my Lord it's all aboard & the ticketmaster knows for sure
Who's gonna ride on the thief in the night train
Too much bank for a Brother Life
But mercy, has paid me off in full so Mr. Conductor give the whistle a pull
Larger than life, cause life on Earth is draggin'
My gift is a trip on the Lord's bandwagon
Maybe we should look beyond our sights
Make a way to feel without a touch
Our trust is not just blind belief
Cause we use other eyes to see
[CHORUS OUT]

Big Deal Lyrics

By Carolyn Arends and Connie Harrington
What will people think?
What will people say?
I can't believe these questions scare me so
What's it gonna take
To get into the game
What could be the worst scenario?
I could hit a wall...I could lose it all
Slip and fall flat on my face
Chorus:
Big deal - so what
I won't be the first to mess things up
Big deal - it's alright
At least I'll know I tried
Big deal- it's OK
I'll get it right someday
I could lock the doors
I could close the blinds
Play it safe inside my living room
I could let my fears
Bury me alive
Keep from the things I'm meant to do
Or I could take the cup of life and drink it up
And when I spill it on myself
Repeat Chorus
I will take the cup of life and drink it up

Broken Down Lyrics

I will come to You if You don't mind this mess
Cause I have brusehd up my act, but I'm still an
Orphan in rags trying to look her best
There's been talk all over town about the One who fixes the broken down
I will come to You if You don't mind my unfaithfulness
Cause I have put my hand to the plow, but my spirit was barely in it
There's been talk all in these parts about the One who warms the coldest hearts
I will come to You if You don't mind my sorrow
Cause I have planted rows and rows,
But my sweat and tears won't make 'em grow
They're even talkin' on the farms about the One who gathers us in His arms
He gathers us in His arms
So I will come to You if what they're sayin' is really true
Cause I have heard of blind that see, lame who walk, so can You mend me?
I will gather all my stuff and bring it to the feet of Jesus... Jesus
I will rise and go to Jesus--He won't mind my mess.
About this Song:
People ask us, "So you're from East Tennessee, do you have a refrigerator on your front porch?" We say, "Well, maybe." We've actually decided that it's a pretty smart idea put all your broken stuff out on the porch, and just maybe someone will come by and fix it. And maybe we shouldn't stop there but put the broken things in our heart out, so when the Healer comes through town, He'll know to stop by. When Jesus was here on earth, people went even further they carried the sick into the marketplaces or wherever He was. "And all who touched him were healed."

Cadence Lyrics

Write down,to remind yourself on how it can be
Heartstrings, you're tugging at my heartstrings
Helpless, I have become so helpless to your touch
Touch me somehow
Restless, you leave me restless
Breathless wait for me
The closer I come to you
The closer I am to finding God
You're a miracle to me
The closer I come to you
The closer I am to finding God
You're a miracle to me
Burning, like Joan of Arc to see you, just to feel you
Cadence, I would dance with the dead cause I believe
Yes I believe, yes I believe
Stifle, Paul said that you stifle him
Again and again and again
And if these are my parting words
Then this, my last request
Hold me here, until I sleep
If I burn, then I burn for you

Came To My Rescue Lyrics

Falling on my knees in worship
Giving all I am to seek your face
Lord all I am is yours
My whole life
I place in your hands
God of Mercy
Humbled I bow down
In your presence at your throne
I called you answered
And you came to my rescue and I
I wanna be where you are
In my life be lifted high
In our world be lifted high
In our love be lifted high

Camouflage Soul Lyrics

Another chance has come and gone
And I allowed my faith to fade into the background
How can I claim to be like your Son
And keep hanging on to what I know
He died to free me from?
I'm tired of blending in
I'm tired of being one of the crowd
While everyone knows my name
Nobody knows my God
Chorus:
I don't want to be another camouflage soul
'Cuz I've been that way to long
I don't want to be another camouflage soul
I finally realize the danger in sitting onthe sidelines
Conformity is failure
I have the disguise to look the part
But I don't want to wear
Your cross around my neck
And not have Your peace in my heart
I'm tired of blending in
I'm tired of being one of the crowd
While everyone knows my name
Nobody knows my God
I've got a change of heart
And I won't change my mind
I'm ready for a brand new start
Now I've got to change my life
Denying You is like saying that the world is flat
Why would I do that?
Turn my back on what You've done for me
Never again
Now I've got this bracelet
Asking me what would He do...
If He were in my shoes,
He never wouldn've walked both sides of the fence
I've got a change of heart
And I won't change my mind
I'm ready for a brand new start
Now I've got to change my life

Change The Word (Lost Ones) Lyrics

If I could write one letter
To the world as we know it
I would list these rhymes
That mean everything to me
Heartache temporary
Bullets only stop your blood
Pain will live on and on
In everyone, in everyone
And we could change, we could change it down
We could change the world, we could strike the chord
We are the lost ones, we are the lost ones
We could re-write history, if only you and me
We are the lost ones, we are the lost ones
And We could change it down
The bottle holds no answers
His lips can only sway
Chemicals imbalance
Who needs them anyway?
Desire is close at hand
Her lips can only sway
There's more to life than this
Don't give yourself away

Come And Take My Hand Lyrics

I'm lookin' for some comfort, someone to soothe my pain
I'm taken by the notion, true love can feel no shame;
So in my desperation, it seems I've been decieved
The tempting hand of pleasure has made a fool of me
An invitaion is written in my name
A little voice inside I cannot explain
His invitation gently knocks at my heart's door
I don't know what on Earth I could be waiting for
CHORUS:
Come & take my hand
To the promised land
You will understand
Come & take my hand Come go with me
You know I'm covered with forgiveness so now I'm not alone
He walked me through the valley& made his house my home
So tell me that you're willing, I want to take you there
His gates are always open, His hand is always near
An invitation is written in your name a little voice inside yu cannot explain
His invitation gently knocks at your heart's door
I dont' know what on Earth you could be waithng for
CHORUS
Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord
I dreamed a scene was placed before me, a vision I adore
Mine eyes have seen the glory & He took me as I was
He said come with me my child & taste a greater love

Confidant Lyrics

Come a little closer
You're my confidant
When the sun fades into the night
And my thought drift across the day
There's a feeling I am holding tight
And I'm thankful that you're just a prayer away
I've been longing for the one who shares my heart
Come a little closer
You're my confidant
You're the one who comforts me
Its so hard in this shallow age
To find a more faithful friend
When I call on your sweet name
You're right beside me and you stay until the end
Come a little closer
Have I told you
You're my confidant
And I know you are here
Oh your careful with all my secrets
I tell you my heart whatever I feel
With you I know I can be real
You know what ill say before I start
You're the keeper of my heart
Yes you are
You're my confidant
I know you are listening
I see your face and have no fear
Inside my heart ill let you see
You can keep my secret

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

Dance, Dance Christa Paffgen Lyrics

She's got the time, says she got time on her side
Running the room
Commanding the late boys' eyes
She runs around, knows all the streets by name
So mysterious, shadows meet James Dean
She's intoxicating, soon your favorite drink
Your black dress in disarray
Only dance floor prayers can save
Temperatures rise and I start to move
But it's you that's coursing through my veins
Say she's got hope
Took shelter to the Hollywood list, taking control
Wanted my heart but I gave her my soul
She's like a Paige Davis with a Monroe kiss
Disappeared today, left no trace
But someday I'll know your name
Don't need no drugs, you're my chemical
Now I'm dependent, swear I'm clinical
Addicted to those glances, taking chances tonight
I need a fix in those heroin eyes
Don't need no drugs, you're my chemical
Now I'm dependent, no not cynical
Addicted to those glances, taking chances tonight
I need a fix in those heroin eyes
She's no saint but she'll take you to your knees
Try her boy, but she'll still do what she please
Do you believe in science? She's perfect chemistry
She wanted my love but I gave her the rest of me
Dear Stephen Patrick:
You'll adore me before the night is over
If London's calling don't you dare pick up the phone
Only you entwined
Could make this orphan feel at home
Lips that need no introduction, but now waiting for your call
If picture's worth a thousand words
Then your touch is worth them all

Day Late Lyrics

So let me get this straight
You say now you loved me all along
What made you hesitate
To tell me with words what you really feel?
I can see it in your eyes you mean all of what you say
I remember so long ago, see I felt that same way
Now we both have separate lives and lovers (and lovers)
Insignificantly enough we both have significant others
Only time will tell
Time will turn and tell
We are who we were when
Could've been lovers
But at least you're still my day late friend
We are who, we are who we were when
Who knew what we know now
Could've been more
But at least you're still my day late friend
We are who, we are who we were when
But thoughts they change
And times they rearrange
I don't know who you are anymore
Loves come and go and this I know
I'm not who you recall anymore
But I must confess
You're so much more than I remember
Can't help but entertain these thoughts, thoughts of us together
So let me get this straight
All these years
And you were nowhere to be found
And now you want me for your own
But you're a day late
And my love, she's still renowned

Dear Friend Lyrics

Dear Friend
What's on your mind
You don't laugh the way you used to
But I've noticed how you cry
Dear friend I feel so helpless
I see you sit in silence
As you face new pain each day
I feel there's nothing I can do
I know you don't feel pretty
Even though you are
But it wasn't your beauty
That found truth in my heart
Dear friend you are so precious
Dear friend
Dear friend
I'm here for you
I know that you don't talk too much
But we can share this day anew
Dear friend
Please don't feel like you're alone
There is someone who is praying
Praying for your piece of mind
Hoping joy is what you find
I know you don't feel weak
Even though you are
But it wasn't your strength
That found room in my heart
Dear friend
You are so precious
Dear friend

Dear Honesty Lyrics

Divided devotion, controlled passion,
And theories of purity that remain hypotheses,
Plural allegiances, and dual monogamy,
These lies are the ghosts that haunt the
Graveyard of normality.
I'm cutting compromise from today's routine.
Hold fast to integrity, I won't let it go.
Keep me, honesty.
Honesty, these luxuries I have left behind
And I'm on my way.

Do We Dare Lyrics

By Carolyn Arends
The prayers that we pray in foxholes and funerals
The songs that we sing in delivery rooms
The questions we ask when nobody's listening
But the man in the moon
The way our hearts beat - faced with a sunrise
Like maybe they know something we don't
But it's all in code and we can't decode it
Or maybe we won't
Chorus:
Do we dare pay attention, dare even mention
The mystery we find ourselves caught in
And do we dare to remember
All that we have forgotten
Each breath that we take - we take for granted
So if there are clues we remain unaware
All the days of our lives burn down like matches
Vanish into thin air
But there are dreams that we dream when we least expect them
And memories that come like unbidden tears
All the things we believed when we were still children
It's been so many years
Repeat Chorus
We are battered and torn from the day we are born
In a world that has blinded and bound us
Is it any surprise we don't open our eyes
To the truth that's disguised all around us
Like the secrets we keep we don't know we're keeping
From before there was time, before there were lies
Can we find you again this far from the garden?
Do we dare even try?
Repeat Chorus

Do What You Do Lyrics

By Carolyn Arends and Connie Harrington
She's on the clock but she doesn't seem to mind
Whatever matters she always finds the time
She laughs out loud when it's funny
And when it's not she sighs...
Chorus:
You do what you do like you know what you're doing
And you go where you go 'cause your feet keep you moving
Through the highs and the lows of the winning and losing
That's the way you know that you're alive
You never know what can happen in a day
She takes the subway at seven anyway
Sometime's the ride's really scary but then sometimes it's great
She says..
Repeat Chorus
She's not afraid to live this life
She says it's not like rolling dice
It's in the hands of God so why not...

Emmanuel Lyrics

We have seen Your star rising in the East
We have watched that star crest over the horizon
We have waited for You to come... Emmanuel
We have heard the songs the angels have been singing
We have seen the gifts the wise have been bringing
We have wanted to join their song... Emmanuel
CHORUS:
And we are not alone anymore,
God's with us,
We are not alone...
Emmanuel,
God with us
We've been shaken from our sleep to hear of great joy
We have followed the shepherds to find You
We've discovered a baby boy.. Emmanuel
We have felt the hope in the air that You are breathing
We have seen the peace on Your face while You've been sleeping
We have wanted a pice of that hope... Emmanuel
CHORUS
About this Song:
Christmas is traditionally a time for us to enjoy all the gifts of family and friends. But maybe when Jesus came to earth, He was most excited about getting to the lonely, needy ones of us who have been waiting for something to change. "Emmanuel" means "God with us." We are not alone anymore.

Eternal Lifestyle Lyrics

I see you punks with your spikes, your hair dyed, or maybe it's all shaved off
I see you preppies with your v-neck vests over button downs
I see you jocks, you captain of the team with your real mean game face on
But the fashion show can only last so long
Chorus:
Eternal lifestyle
I see you really know what matters
Eternal lifestyle
I'm looking inside
I see you take the road less traveled because of your convictions
And you find the positive in the valley of confusion
Your heart is much more valuable than a diamond ring
So don't hide it let it glow
You are the light of the world
You are the salt of the earth
You are the light of the world
You are the salt of the earth
You have the answers to eternal questions
You hold the keys that the lost are searching for
In your eyes I see a vision of the future
I see the world and I smile

Eternity In Our Hearts Lyrics

Words by Carolyn Arends
Music by Carolyn Arends and Spencer Capier
I have seen the burden God has laid on men. He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end. Ecclesiastes 3:10-11
It's the feeling that somebody's watching
When we're dreaming in the dark
It's the whisper we hear in the silence
Eternity in our hearts
It's the sense we are meant for a journey
But we don't know where to start
It's a restlessness nothing can settle
Eternity in our hearts
It's the longing for a home
We have never known
A yearning and a promise
It's the questions without any answers
It's a puzzle missing parts
It's the secret we've all but forgotten
Eternity in our hearts
It's a burden we all bear
A blessing we all share
An aching and the hope of glory
And for mere flesh and bone to contain it
We are almost torn apart
But it's the one thing that completes us
Eternity in our hearts
And so it's believing that someday
We will see things as they are
And then we will know there was always
Eternity in our hearts
We are blessed with the burden of holding
Eternity in our hearts

Even The Wallflowers Lyrics

Words and music by Carolyn Arends
From the moment you arrived here I've been utterly amazed
Astonished at your level of perfection
So it breaks my heart in pieces to imagine all the ways
You'll get hurt in spite of my protection
'Cause someday I'll have to send you like a soldier off to school
And the lesson you will learn there is that kids can be so cruel
So however well they like you and whatever grade you get
Promise me baby that you won't forget
Even the wallflowers do survive - they can thrive
Even in the shadows
And there is a power in finding out for yourself
Rain or shine, whichever way it goes
Even the wallflowers grow
I hope they choose you early when the captains pick their teams
And I pray that they invite you to their dances
I hope it doesn't hurt too much the times you skin your knees
And that your heart endures its first romances
I cannot imagine anyone not loving you
But everybody feels alone at least a time or two
And I wish that I could spare you any heartache down the road
But maybe then baby you never would know
Even the wallflowers do survive - they can thrive
Even in the shadows
And there is a power in finding out for yourself
Rain or shine, whichever way it goes
Even the wallflowers
Grow in soil that's watered by
Every single tear they cry
Believe me baby, you will live
And someday you will tell your kid
Even the wallflowers do survive - they can thrive
Even in the shadows
And there is a power in finding out for yourself
Rain or shine, whichever way it goes
Even the wallflowers grow

Everything Lyrics

I said a prayer
That someday I would find a boy
And together we'd find joy
Maybe someday
And he would care
About the color of the sky
About the things that make me cry
Maybe someday
And if it happens this is what I'd say:
And I will give you my life
Together we'll make it right
And I will say to you
What is for sure
That I'll give you my world
And baby I'll be your girl
And I will say to you
Everything I have is yours
I wonder if
If God has shown him
He is the one whose gonna marry me
Maybe someday
So, I'm gonna wait
'Cause I'm worth waiting for
And what I'm worth is so much more
For that someday
And if it happens this is what I'd say

Face To Face Lyrics

It seems I came to life when I heard
You whisper You said the words I love you
Every time I think about Your grace it's clearer
You are the one I've been searching for to complete me
Chorus:
When I draw near You always meet me
Longing just to be together again
With every passing day
The shadows in my life fade away
The more I see You face to face
Tell me all Your stories from a thousand places
Of how You made it through
When I hear Your voice my eyes are filled with wonder
I forget the trials and the thorns I find around my feet yeah
Someday
My dreams will soon be reality
Someday
My dreams will be reality it seems
I came to life when I heard You whisper
You said the words I love you

Faithful One Lyrics

Oh, me of little faith, I can't make mountains move
But with each little step, I get closer to the truth
So I won't walk, I'll run, to the faithful One
CHORUS:
The faithful One who makes my soul believe
A firm and steady rock, where I lean
When I'm falling down, I'm holding on, to the faithful One
When the brightest day I sswallowed by night
I'll keep moving in faith cause I can't by sight
With the rise of the sun, comes the faithful One
CHORUS
BRIDGE:
As sure as the seasons change, You stay the same
As sure as things fall away, You will remain 'cause You say
CHORUS
To the faithful One who makes my soul believe
A firm and steady rock where I lean when I'm falling down
I'm holding on to the faithful One.
About this Song:
As the last song written for the album, The Faithful One came as an answer to all of the transition and change in our lives. We're so forgetful and fickle that it's a good thing we're relying on His faithfulness and not our own.

Father, Thy Will Be Done Lyrics

By Carolyn Arends
When I cannot ask for more - Father, thy will be done
When I rail at heaven's door - Father, thy will be done
When my faith in you is strong - Father, thy will be done
When my strength is almost gone - Father, thy will be done
Chorus:
Father, thy will be done
Father, thy will be done
I want to see your kingdom come
Thy will be done
When I cry to you in prayer - Father, thy will be done
When I don't believe you're there - Father, thy will be done
When I feel your gentle hand - Father, thy will be done
When I just don't understand - Father, thy will be done
Repeat Chorus
When I'm walking in the light - Father, thy will be done
When my heart is black as night - Father, thy will be done
When you give what I desire - Father, thy will be done
When you take me through the fire - Father, thy will be done

Feel Free Lyrics

Written by Carolyn Arends
You can fill my crosswords in with ink
Speak your mind before you think
Wear your shoes inside my house
Wear my clothes and wear me out
You can lose your head or spill your guts
I'm your friend I'm not your judge
Chorus:
Feel free to laugh or cry
Feel free to wonder why
Feel free to dance or grieve
You are safe when you're with me
Feel free
You can change your plans or change your mind
A million, billion, trillion times
Raise the roof or pound the door
Climb the walls or hit the floor
You can run with scissors if you must
But it'd be better if you just
Repeat Chorus
To pray or scream or say or dream anything you want to
To tell me every secret thing about the ghosts that haunt you
And you can open up your closet wide
There's no skeleton inside
Worse than ones I call my own
Rest assured you're not alone
And together we can face that stuff
Till at long last both of us

Feel Good Drag Lyrics

"I'm here for you" she said
And we can stay for a while
My boyfriend's gone
We can just pretend
Lips that need no introduction
Now who's the greater sin
Your drab eyes seem to invite
Where do we begin?
Was this over before
Before it ever began?
Your kiss, your calls, your crutch
Like the devil's got your hands
This was over before
Before it ever began
Your lips, your lies, your lust
Like the devil's in your hands
Everyone in this town
Is seeing somebody else
Everyone's tired of someone
Our eyes wander for help
Prayers that need no answer now
I'm tired of who I am
You were my greatest mistake
I fell in love with your sin
Your littlest sin
Failure is your disease
You want my outline drawn
You are my greatest failure
Discourse your saving song

Fire Fall Down Lyrics

You bought my life with the
Blood that You shed on the cross
When You died for the sins of men
And You let out a cry
Crucified now alive in Me
These Hands are Yours
Teach them to serve as You please
And I'll reach out desperate to see
All the greatness of God
May my soul rest assured in You
I'll never be the same
No I'll never be the same
Cause I know that You're alive
You came to fix my broken life
And I'll sing to glorify
Your Holy Name
Jesus Christ
You changed it all
You broke down the wall
When I spoke and confessed
In You I'm blessed
Now I walk in the light
In victorious sight of You
Your fire fall down
Fall down
On us we pray
As we seek
Show me Your heart
Show me Your way
Show me Your glory

Force Like This Lyrics

V 1: Ever since I saw you smile, & talked to you on tha phone
I feel like I could sprint for miles
And thus new lands I could roam
Could this be God sending you my way
If it's the same faith we're believing, I want this feeling to stay
If only I could see how you feel, I wish someone would tell me if this love is for real
CHORUS: Cuz I've never known a force like this
That could bring these two hearts together
It's amazing & I hope we don't miss the mark
Cause I'd like to be wit you forever

The one right for me in time
I need direction from God above, I need to know that I'm in love
Cuz at love I'm new, & I'm falling for you
And I don't want to get hurt by the things that you might do
If only I could see how you feel

Foreign Language Lyrics

Boys speak in rhythm and girls in code

I take the road that leads me on
And gaze out over the land
Ground the colour of turf laden brown
And trees that sing in the wind

Some of the things
That take my breath away
These are the things
Some of the things

And children's laughter sounds in the air
And fills my heart with joy

Genuine Lyrics

I see you passing by
I don't where
I don't know why
You choose to go the way that you're going now
You've been a friend of mine for many years for a long time, but..
You just aren't you today, so what's on your mind
You just won't speak abut it
Think about it
Be about it
Gotta make yourself aware that you're goin' astray
You're trying so hard to fit in
CHORUS :
What you need is something genuine
What you want is something real
What you you need is something truthful
I know you do (3x)
'Cause I need it too..
What you need (2x)
What you want (2x)
What you need (2x)
Something Genuine.
You cry yourself to sleep
Sleep at night but once the night is gone
And you prepare to face a brand new day
YOu hide yourself behind that mastermind
You're in disguise
It's as if you try to put a mask on your pain
You Don't know who you are
What you're about
Where are you now
You're becoming someone that you don't want to be
You're trying so hard to fit in...
CHORUS
He loves you for who you are now and who you will be
Don't fear living in truth there's reality
I don't have all the asnwers but I know One who does
And I know there's freedom and truth
I got to Him because
CHORUS
What He has is something genuine
Who He is is someone real
What He gives is something truthful
Its what He has its Who he is
Its what He gives
And I need Him too
What you need (2x)
I Need Him Too
What you want (2x)
What you need (2x)
Something genuine.

Glass To The Arson Lyrics

Side by side we face each other
Standing here alone together
Your code ill break, you made your last mistake
Called out cold war
Remnants now on the floor
This is Russian radio here
Calling you to come back home
This is Russian radio here
Run while you still can
Different sides we take our stance
This could be our last goodbye forever
Your spies come clean, they told me everything
Your moves I make, penance the fire drake
And if this is our last goodbye
Let me kiss your lips of red tonight
And walk the other way
Run away, run away
This is our last, this is our last goodbye

Go With God Lyrics

Words and music by Carolyn Arends and Connie Harrington
Farther than lands you have ever imagined
Deeper than even the oceans of blue
An open horizon is waiting like morning
Waking the dreamer who's living in you
So now go with the wind at your back
And the sun on your face
With a song in your heart
And the promise of grace
Go in peace and in truth
And let love lead your way
Go with God
Go with God
Stronger than will in the soul of a fighter
Higher than hope in the heart of a child
There is a longing, a yearning inside us
That's reaching for heaven and won't be denied
If you go with the wind at your back
And the sun on your face
With a song in your heart
And the promise of grace
Go in peace and in truth
And let love lead your way
Go with God
Go with God
Go with the wind at your back
And the sun on your face
With a song in your heart
And the promise of grace
Go in peace and in truth
And let love lead your way
Go with God
Go with God
Go with God

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.

God Is

Verse 1:
God is my protection.
God is my all in all.
God is my guide and direction.
God is my all in all.
Verse 2:
God is my joy in time of sorrow.
God is my all in all.

the strength of my life,
He moves all pain, misery, and strife.

I've got to fast and pray,
stay in His narrow way,
I've got to keep my life clean everyday;
I want to go with Him when He comes back,
I've come to far and I'll never turn back.
God is (8x),
God is my all in all.

Good Thing Lyrics

It's easy to see that your mecy for me runs deeper than I ever could imagine
You love me as I am, though you know what I should be
That's why loving you has now become my passion
CHORUS:
Ain't nothn' but a good thing [ Oh don't you know that it's true ]
Ain't nothin' but a good thing [ I am devoted to you ]
Ain't nothin' but a good thing [ You put a smile on my face ]
Ain't nothin' but a good thing

Good Thing Going Lyrics

By Carolyn Arends
We've got a good thing going so we've got to protect it
They say people lose it when they least expect it
Baby I know it's true - but I don't worry 'bout us
And all the friends we thought were gonna make it forever
They all ran into trouble and now they're not together
Baby I know it's sad - but I don't worry 'bout us
'Cause how could anybody turn my head
When my heart's forever lost to you
How could I fall into another's arms
When I've fallen so deep into a love so true
We've got a good thing going so we can't get lazy
Got to keep working at it, but then
You know I'm crazy for you
It's not so hard - so I don't worry 'bout us
How could anybody turn my head
When my heart's forever lost to you
How could I fall into another's arms
When I've fallen so deep into a love so true
We've got a good thing going and we've got to protect it
Because there's nothing better, baby - don't you forget it
I know I never will, so I don't worry 'bout us
Oh no - baby I never will - I don't worry 'bout us

Hallelujah Lyrics

Saved by Your mercy
Found in Your grace
Totally surrendered
To Your embrace
And there's nothing more
Than You See Your perfection
I'm lost in Your peace
Your faithfulness sings over me
And Your love is the light of my soul
And I lift my eyes to You Creator of the world
And I stand in awe of You Of Your glory
And I live to worship You Son of God, King of heaven
And the angels round Your throne Cry out holy
To the One who is to come
Hear us sing
Hallelujah Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah

Hammer Lyrics

Words and music by Ray Boltz and Steve Millikan
I was in the crowd
The day that Jesus died
And as He hung upon the cross
His mother cried
I saw the crown of thorns He wore
The stripes upon His back
The water and the blood ran out
And then the sky turned black
My mind was filled with anger
My heart was filled with shame
This man brought only healing
Who could bring Him pain
Why does it seem the strong
Always victimize the weak
And suddenly I found myself
Standing to my feet
CHORUS:
And I cried,
Who nailed Him there?
This child of peace and mercy
Who nailed Him there?
Come and face me like a man
Who nailed Him there?
And the crowd began to mock me
I cried, Oh my God,
I do not understand
Then I turned and saw the hammer
In my hand!
I am just a Roman soldier
An ordinary man
I love my wife and children
I do the best I can
How could I have killed Him?
It must be someone else
There's got to be an answer
I just can't blame myself
CHORUS
I nailed Him there
The child of peace and mercy
I nailed Him there
I am the guilty man
I nailed Him there
With my sins and my transgressions
I cried, Oh my God,
Now I understand
When I turned and saw the hammer...
In my hand!

Happy Lyrics

Words and music by Carolyn Arends
Do I annoy you with my optimism
Am I an insult to your realism
I've got hope and just a little bit of passion
I know both those things have gone right out of fashion
So call me a rebel, you can call me a fool
I won't give up the fight, I just refuse
And I will dare to dream
I will dare to believe in something, baby
I will dare to be - happy
I will dare to be happy
Does it offend you that I've made that decision
Does it betray your sense of fatalism
Well please forgive me but I don't believe it's treason
For me to live my life like its mine for a reason
So call me Pollyanna, you can call me a child
But I will not lie down, that's not my style
And I will dare to dream
I will dare to believe in something, baby
I will dare to be - happy
I will dare to be happy
Do I annoy you with my stubborn insistence
That love can save us and I've seen its existence
I've got Jesus and a little bit of passion
I know both those things have gone right out of fashion
So you can call me crazy 'cause here's what I'm gonna do
I'm gonna dare to pray the same for you
And I will dare to dream
I will dare to believe in something, baby
I will dare to be - happy
I will dare to be happy

He Will Remember Me Lyrics

He Will Remember Me
(written by E.M. Bartlett)
Verse 1
When on the cross of Calvary, the Lord was crucified;
the mob stood 'round Him and mocked until He died.
Two thieves were nailed beside Him to share the agony,
but one of them cried out to Him, O Lord remember me.
Chorus
Will the Lord remember me when I am called to go'
When I have crossed death's chilly sea, will He His love there show'
O yes, He heard my feeble cries, from bondage set me free,
and when I reach the pearly gates He will remember me.
Verse 2
O, what a shame to kill Him there on that rugged cross;
but such a death was needed to rescue all the lost.
His blood made a ransom to set the captives free,
I know that I'm included and He will remember me.
Chorus
Verse 3
At His dear feet I'm kneeling, my sins I now confess;
I bow in deep repentance, my soul He'll surely bless.
My blinded eyes He opens so that the light I see,
and when I reach the pearly gates, He will remember me.
Chorus

He'll Do It Again Lyrics

You may feel down
and feel like God has somehow forgotten
That are faced with circumstances
that you can't get through
Right now it seems that there's no way out
You're going under
God's proven time and time again
He'll take care of you
Chorus
He'll do it again (God will do it again)
He'll do it again (Yes He will do it again)
Just take a look at where you are now
And where you been
Has He always come through for you
He's the same now as then
(Don't you know God has not changed)
You may not know how
You may not know when
But he'll do it again
God knows the things that you're going through
And how you are hurting
He understands just how your heart has been
broken in two
He's the God of the sun, the stars, the sea
He is your father
He'll calm the storm
He'll find a way
And he'll fix it for you
Chorus
He's still God
He will not fail you
He's still God
He has not changed
I know He's still God
And He's fighting for you
Just like Daniel
Just like Moses
Just like Shadarach, Messiach, Abendengo
Chorus
I know that He will
I tried him for myself
You may not know how
You may not know when (Repeat as directed)

Heart Of Hearts Lyrics

V 1: You tried to play with my mind, play me like a fool
You wanted to get with me, but that couldn't be
You wanted to have my heart so you could break it
It would've torn me apart, but you couldn't take it
Cause that is not in the plan, that will not take place
You might as well understand by the look on my face
There is someone who loves me, & will always be
He's the truth & the life, He has set me free
CHORUS: He's the one & the only
He's the one that showed me
I can depend on Him, in my heart of hearts
He will stand the test of time, over any otherline
I know he's the best in my heart of hearts
V 2: So many people around tried turn me away
But I know that I have found, I will always stay
Right beside the One who has changed my life
Shining bright as the sun is His face to mine
BRIDGE: You cannot turn me away from the One that I need most
I've decided long before, there's no need for me to search anymore

Hike To Maine Lyrics

Gonna hike up to Maine
Along the spine of the Appalachians
Gonna end up where the snow meets the sea
The snow is beckoning me
No measure of water could quench this fire
No mountain will get in my way
I'm gonna hike to Maine
Gonna live my life like everyday is the trail
Gonna prance along the ridges
And wait out the storms in the shelter cause I know
There's gonna be rough weather
No measure of rain will dry up my heart
No cloud will make me stay
I'm gonna hike to Maine
CHORUS:
We're singing yeah
One step at a time
Gonna plant my feet forward
And vow not to ever look back with regret
Cause there is nothing that I can't do
Looking up and beyond myself
The weight of failure won't weight down my pack
I'll just take what I learn on the way
I'm gonna hike to Maine
BRIDGE:
When my tired bones need to stop and sit
I will rest my weary head on my walking stick
This trial is not made of dreams I will never taste
Life is so sweet
I ate a bunch of berries while I walked today
Tonight the stars will be my tent
The sun will call me to wake
I'm gonna hike to Maine
CHORUS
About this Song:
We live four miles from the Appalachian Trail, which is a footpath that extends from Georgia to Maine and crosses our road at Iron Mountain Gap. When we're home, we spend lots of time on a small section of it, running, hiking, and walking the dog. But some people hike the entire trail in a few months --seems pretty impossible, but then, life does too, sometimes.

Hinba Lyrics

Pulling against the tide, rowing
Heart praying, thought flowing
Until the oars touch the ground of Hinba
Pushing against the Eastern wind
Salt that bleeds into the skin
Looking over your shoulder to Hinba
This is where you prayed
And Heaven's light shone down
This is where you sang
The Angel song
Rising higher, rising higher
To beyond
Morning comes in glorious light
Sea reflecting calm and bright
And the song still rises from the island
Here you came to make your fast
Prayed for mercy, 'til at last
You heard the word you waited for

Holdin' On Lyrics

Sometimes the pleasures I see in this world
Look so attractive to me
Some days I'm driven by the things that I want
More than the things that I need
When I'm weakest
They sparkle the brightest its true
But they'll never shine brighter than you
When my is uncertain
My heart keeps holdin on
My heart keeps holdin on to you
My keep holdin on
Holdin on to you
My eyes deceive me and turn away
To the places that I left behind
Cant trust these voices that lead me a stray
Always confusing my mind
But the truth is
You've captured my heart I know
And there's no way ill ever let go
When my mind is uncertain
My heart keeps holdin on
My heart keeps holdin on to you
My keep holdin on
Holdin on to you
My clinging to you
Is really you embracing me
My clinging to you
Is really you embracing me
My heart keeps holdin on to you
My keep holdin on
Holdin on to you

Home Fires Burning Lyrics

Words and music by Carolyn Arends and Randy Holland
I still remember our first December
The warmth of your touch and the spark in your eyes
We took desire and built us a fire
I know it will last us the rest of our lives
So let it rain, let it storm
We'll keep believing 'cause love keeps us warm
Chorus
We are making our way, we are twisting and turning
Through it all we can see
That every day we are living and learning
We're finding a way to keep
The home fires burning
Days turn to years, we live through our tears
We laugh at our fears 'cause we've known from the start
Though life makes us older it can't make us colder
As long as the flame still remains in our hearts
So let it rain, let it storm
We'll keep believing 'cause love keeps us warm
Repeat Chorus
Sure there are days when some misunderstanding
Lets in a cold winter chill
But the fire never dies 'cause you and I
Always remember to tend to the embers
And I know that we always will
I know we always will
Repeat Chorus

I Can Hear You Lyrics

Words and music by Carolyn Arends and Connie Harrington
Leaky faucet dripping in the kitchen
Rubber squealing -- watch out in the alley
Mr. Marley's probably late for work again.
Birdie singing -- telling me to get up
Such a soothing sound floating on the wind
I just keep listening
Funny how You speak to me
In such mysterious ways
Chorus:
I can hear You
I can hear You
It's so amazing how Your voice keeps breaking through
I can hear You
There's a church bell ringing out the hour
Like an old friend calling through my window
With the laughter of the children playing down below
You've got a way of getting my attention
In the rhythm of life, everywhere I go
Somehow You let me know
If I'll only stop to listen
You're in everything
Repeat Chorus
I can hear You
I can hear You
I can hear You
I can hear You

I Love The Way Lyrics

You made me a promise
I'm holding on for sure
It's signed and sealed by your word
You're never gonna leave me
In a dark and lonely world
Where silence still yearns to be heard
When I need a friend
To calm the storm within
I hear you speak the words to be still
When I need a shoulder
To rest my weary load
I lean upon the rock of my soul
I love the way you love me
I love the way you love me
I'll never know the reason
Why you care the way you do
I'm perfectly convinced and that's enough
I'm standing in amazement
While I'm running on the faith
Reaching for the prize that's above
Now what a happy day
When we look upon your face
Shining brighter that the sun
No more lonely days only happiness
When I hear you say well done

I Want To See Lyrics

Words by Ray Boltz, Music by Steve Millikan
He sat in the darkness
At the edge of the road
He heard the crowd passing by
But he couldn't go
So he started crying
Like a child at the door
When they tried to quiet him
He shouted it more
CHORUS:
I want to see
Free me from this darkness
Sweeping over me
I want to see
Son of David, have mercy on me
Now his heart was trembling
Could this really be true?
A voice in the darkness said,
What do you want Me to do?
CHORUS
Eyes opened in a moment of grace
Light filled the skies
One touch
And he sees the face of life
Now I'm like that blind man
Who lived long ago
I want to see Jesus
And I just don't care who knows

I Will Walk Lyrics

Crumpled papers on the floor
Failed attempts to put, in words
How I'm so grateful
For what You've done for me
There is nothing I can give
If there is nothing that You need
I come before You
With all You ask of me
CHORUS:
I will walk, I will walk, I will walk
Humbly next to You
There are countless promises,
I have never followed through
All You require
Is all that I can do
CHORUS
About this Song:
Micah asks, "With what shall I come before the Lord. . .burnt offerings? A thousand rams? My firstborn? The fruit of my body?" To this day, we complicate our faith with all kinds of trendy works. "What does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God."

I Won't Slow Down Lyrics

CHORUS:
I won't slow down, ain't gonna let nobody turn me round
I won't back down, I'll fight face to face to my last breath,
But I won't slow down
Day after day, temptation comes around my way
Week after week, it's almost like she's speaking
Nobody's watching, you're only human
Well she gives a little, but she takes a lot and I just bought the lie
Why do I do the things I don't want to
And go against what I know to be true
Forgive me now like only You can do and I'll run to You...and I
CHORUS
Week after week, I'm listening to the words You speak
Day after day, it's almost like her singing
I know You're watching, so who am I fooling
I'm just a little, but You give a lot, so I keep wondering why
Why do I do the things I don't want to
And go against what I know to be true
Lord, forgive me now like only You can do and I'll run to You...and I
CHORUS
I won't slow down
I'll keep on running
Running right into Your open arms
'Cause I can see You here

In Between Lyrics

Words and music by Carolyn Arends and Connie Harrington
Photographs on the wall
Frozen in time we smile
Neatly hung in the hall
Moments caught like old hair styles
Summer trips far away
Homecoming King and Queen
But can these pictures really say
What happened in between
In between our finest days
And all the ones we waste away
In between the dreaming and the coming true
In between the lines we draw
And all the ones we cross we are
Heroes, we are villains, we are everything
In between
We remember the highs
We can't forget the lows
But we spend most of our lives
Somewhere in between them both
We become who we are
Without even noticing
Over breakfast dishes and bedtime prayers
And what we do in between
In between our finest days
And all the ones we waste away
In between the dreaming and the coming true
In between the lines we draw
And all the ones we cross we are
Heroes, we are villains, we are everything
In between
In between our finest days
And all the ones we waste away
In between the dreaming and the coming true
In between the lines we draw
And all the ones we cross we are
Heroes, we are villains, we are
Lovers, we are leavers we are
Skeptics or believers, we are everything
In between

In Good Hands Lyrics

Words and music Carolyn Arends
His hands were callused
Oh I am sure of that
From years of nails and hammers with his father
And his hands were dirty
I know they must have been
The times he healed blind eyes with mud and water
And though I have never seen him face to face
I can say this much I understand
I believe that he is holding me now
And so I know I am
In good hands
I'm in good hands
His hands were steady
Breaking the bread
That fed five thousand souls who came to hear him
And his hands were gentle
I know they must have been
The little children clamored to be near him
And though I have never seen him face to face
I can say this much I understand
I believe that he is holding me now
And so I know I am
In good hands
I'm in good hands
His hands were wounded
He gave his life
And we know by the scars how much he loves us
And though I have never seen him face to face
I can say this much I understand
I believe that he is holding me now
And so I know I am
In good hands
I'm in good hands

In Such A State Lyrics

In disclosed we speak the truth, discovering dependency.
Let's turn this ship around, I'm starting over.
We fight our hearts for the control, wrestling our tendencies.
Let's turn this ship around, I'm starting over.
In desperation, a celebration, of time well spent alone with you.
I'm in such a state, I need you here, I need you near me.
As the sun will rise and set, so I will keep you close.
As the stars illuminate, so I will hold you near
Burn the exits, there's no escaping from love eternal, limitless.
I'm in such a state, I need you here, I need you near me.
I'm in such a state, honestly, transparently speaking

Indian Creek Lyrics

There's snow on the mountain today
I just can't get high enough to feel it
Cause there ain't no straight path up to You
So You stoop down in this valley
You swim along with the stream
I'll dip my hands in the water
And feel them come clean
I'll hold my arms wide open to the One who really lets me in
I'll hold my arms wide open to Him
CHORUS:
You'll find me past the south fork of Indian Creek
I'm trying to hide in these hills and let Him get to me
The silence here is so loud I can hear Him speak
Like a mist on this mountain He settles down,
And my soul is lost in getting found
I saw the stars tonight for the first time in weeks
Black velvet with a million diamonds all laid out for me
It's not like they haven't been shining, it's just that I didn't see
Till I caught the crooket road up and saw their reflection in the creek
I feel what light is all about when it cuts through my dark
I feel what light is all about when I hand Him my heart
CHORUS
BRIDGE:
In the summer, the thunder echoes, back and forth
The trees shake and bend in the storm
Just like me in Your mercy, just like me
CHORUS(3x)
About this Song:
Indian Creek runs in front of our cabin, and we go fishing there often, though we never seem to catch anything, which is a good thing because we wouldn't know what to do with what we caught anyway. But somehow, in that still, quiet place, God catches us, and opens our eyes to see Him all around us.

Isaiah 53 Lyrics

Words and music by Ray Boltz and Steve Millikan
All we like sheep have gone astray
We've turned everyone to his own way
And God laid all our iniquity on Him
Like a lamb they led Him out
Yet He opened not His mouth
And His precious blood poured out
An offering for sin
CHORUS:
He was wounded for our transgressions
He was bruised for our iniquities
Our punishment was upon Him
And by His stripes we are healed
He had no beauty or majesty
Clothed in lowly humanity
And though we saw Him
We could not see
The glory of His grace
But every law was satisfied
The moment He laid down His life
The power of death was destroyed
The price was paid
CHORUS (repeat)

It's Me Lyrics

Here I stand at the door of your heart just knockin'
Won't you let me in I can take away the sin that lies within
I know what your wanting to say
But can only think, can only pray that someone hears
You hide all your secrets in that private place
If you only knew that you mind is open to my eye
I know the truth, I know what you need to fill the void in you
If you only knew that it is me
Chorus:
It's me, that you are searchin' for
It's me, that you are thinkin' of
It's me, that can't live without
It's me, It's me
Here I am, but still you try everything
To give you only what I can
Always hoping that someone'll understand, oh please
It all awaits you if you just taste and see
I am what you need
(Chorus)
What did I do to make you turn so very far away
What's to lose when you have it all to gain
I know you, and what you are and what you want to be
If you only knew it's all in me
(Chorus)
It is me, that you're searchin' for
Nobody else can no one can give you more
It is me, that you're thinkin' of
I can show you love, real love

Jesus Is Lord Lyrics

Jesus Is Lord
Written by Andrae Crouch

Verse 1:
There are so many people who have walked this earth,
thinking that they know the truth.
So they often criticize the way I believe
and they say, tell me where is your proof?

Bridge:
I tell them Jesus was (wounded)
for my transgressions (transgressions)
and He was bruised (bruised)
for my inquities (inquities).

Theyre gonna know thats true,
theyre gonna know thats true,
theyve got to know that its the truth,
theyve got to know that its the truth,
that...

Jesus, (He was sent from the Father),
Jesus, (Hes a great Messiah).
Jesus, (Hes bread for the hungry),
Jesus, (Hes water for the thirsty).
Jesus, (Hes hope for the hopeless).
Jesus, (He arose from the dead),
Jesus, (just like He said).

Chorus:
Every knee shall bow,
every tounge confess
that Jesus is Lord,
that Jesus is Lord.

Verse 2:
He walked upon the water
and this same Jesus calmed the raging sea.
He healed a man that was lame one day,
and from sinking sand, He lifted me.

Bridge:

Chorus

Vamp 1:
Jesus is Lord.

Vamp 2:
Bow, bow,

bow down.

Last Thursday (Call Me Crazy) Lyrics

By Carolyn Arends
I think it was last Thursday - I went to see my friend
We drank some Coca Cola, we laughed a while and then
We dove into philosophy and politics and sin
The way we do
He told me he'd been looking the cold truth in the eyes
He told me my religion was wishing in disguise
He said "The only Savior is the one inside your mind"
And I said "if that's true
Then you can
Chorus:
Call me crazy 'cause I don't want to live that way
Call me lazy - I don't want to work that hard
Call me crazy, but I don't think that I can save myself
You see I've read a thousand pages on how to help myself
To a thousand different ways to perfect mental health
And I swear I've tried them all and I'm still needing something else
And I think you are too
So you can
Repeat Chorus
And furthermore I still believe in what I cannot see or touch
Crazy things like dreams and prayers and faith and hope and love
And I know a life without these things is not a life at all
So you can call it sanity but then you'll have to call me crazy

Light Reflected Lyrics

I see light reflected
I see light reflected
I see light reflected
In the glow of springtime sun
In the smile of wonder
There is truth and there is peace
Reaching to me from heaven
As we walk across this hill
We're in orbit spinning round the sun
Around the sun
Around the sun
Light of light eternal
Light my way for me
Light of light eternal
Light my way for me
Gazing through a veil of tears
Blurring the starlight glow
Holding my hands up to the sky
Saying my silent prayer
As I walk into the night
I see light reflected from the sun

Lord Of All Lyrics

Lord I long to see You glorified
In everything I do
All my heartfelt dreams I put aside
To see Your Spirit move with power in my life

And each word You speak brings life to all who hears
Lord of all
All of creations
Sings Your praise
In heaven and earth
Lord we stand
Hearts open wide
Be exalted

Love Is Always There Lyrics

Words and music by Carolyn Arends
His love is always there
No matter where you are
His love is always greater than your fondest hopes
And bigger than what you're afraid of
There is no heart so lost it cannot be found
There are no hopeless circumstances
There is no such thing as a God-forsaken town
'Cause there are always second chances
Until this life is over, there is no point of no return
'Cause everywhere you turn
Chorus
His love is always there
No matter where you are
His love is always greater than your fondest hopes
And bigger than what you're afraid of
Wherever you may go
You haven't gone too far
Love is always there...
... Is no night so long it can stop the sun
From taking over come the morning
And there's no road so wrong it can keep anyone
From finding home around the corner
So even in your darkest hour
Even when it's more than you can bear
You've always got a prayer
Repeat Chorus
Like a light in the window
Love calls you in from the dark
Like a tireless suitor
Heaven pursues your heart
Repeat Chorus

Love Lead Me On Lyrics

Someday I'm gonna go out to the country
I'll drive til the hightway ends
Chasing after picture perfect sunsets
To take my breath away
I'm tired of living in the city
The world's got me tied on a string
Wanderlust has overcome me
Like Lewis and Clark I'll dream
There's a million different ways to go
Only God can know where I will call my home
Chorus
Love lead me on
Where no one else has gone
Faith keep me strong
Love lead me on
The open road can be so lonely
I'm longing for someone to love
If only I could share my new surroundings
Open the doors above
There's a million different ways to go
Only God can know where I will call my home
Chorus
Love lead me on
Where no one else has gone
Faith keep me strong
Love lead me on
Faith keep me strong
Love lead me home

Love Song Lyrics

Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am home again
Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am whole again
Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am young again
Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am fun again
However far away, I will always love you
However long I stay, I will always love you
Whatever words I say, I will always love you
I will always love you
Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am free again
Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am clean again

Love Will Make You Beautiful Lyrics

Time is slipping away
Days go by, fade away
With one eye opened, one closed
I think you know
Love will make you beautiful
Love will make you beautiful
Thoughts swirl, spinning around
Weary, falling down
When out of the darkness a hand
Reach out
Hold fast
Chorus
Love will make you beautiful
Love will make you beautiful
Turn round this time
Love is there to find
Lift your head and see
Open uo your eyes
Love will make you beautiful
Love will make you beautiful

Love You Out Loud Lyrics

Words and music by Carolyn Arends and Joel Lindsey
If I had only known that you were leaving here so soon
I would not have been so flippant when I offered you the moon
I'd have pulled my chair up closer to the railing of your bed
And chosen much more carefully the words I said
I would ask you for your stories
And I would tell you mine
I would give you much more credit
I would take more of your time
There's so much I left unspoken
If you were here right now
I would love you out loud
If I had said the words "I love you" every time they crossed my mind
Then you would have heard me tell you at least a thousand times
I know you knew it anyway, I guess you understood
But I would like to go back if I only could
I would ask you for your stories
And I would tell you mine
I would give you much more credit
I would take more of your time
There's so much I left unspoken
If you were here right now
I would love you out loud
I would touch you much more often
I would laugh at all your jokes
I would worry through your worries
I would dream through all your hopes
I would pray with you to heaven
Are you watching from there now
Do you know what I would give for the chance somehow
To ask you for your stories
I would tell you mine
I would give you much more credit
I would take more of your time
There's so much I left unspoken
If you were here right now
I would love you out loud
Oh, I would love you out love

Magic Show Lyrics

Would you believe if I turned water to wine?
Would you belive if I gave sight to the blind?
Chorus:
Can you calm the storm?
Can you calm the storm?
I could be a man or a myth
I could be the greatest teacher the world has ever known
I could be a crazy man
I could be the Son
Would you believe if I could walk on an angry sea?
Would you come to me if I healed all your disease?
Can you calm the storm?
Can you hush the wind?
Can you hold back the rain?
Can you calm the storm
That rages in the life of a wicked man?
I could be a man or a myth
I could be the greatest teacher the world has ever known
I could be a crazy man
I could be the Son
Don't you see that I love you?
Don't you see that I love you?
But you still don't believe
I can tell by the way you roll your eyes
And you still don't believe
And I can tell by the way that you live your life
I could be a man or a myth
I could be the greatest teacher the world has ever known
I could be a crazy man
I could be the Son
Can you calm the storm...

Minutes For Memories Lyrics

I'm trading my minutes for memories
To live and relive those moments
When loneliness was miles away.
So sweet is the taste of communion
You're dying to know me.
What is this life without love?
Dying is living without you here.
I let down my arms and open my eyes.
The beauty from within and I am a vapor.

More Than You Know Lyrics

I know you walk around this life without hope
Just tryin to figure out a way you can cope, well
You do so many things to escape your fears that you will never make it,
You'll always have to fake being happy
I know the truth you can believe it or not
There's a way out of this way of living
But your trust must be giving willingly
Someon to rescue you from all your disgrace
Who will show you all his mercy, love and grace
More than you know
More than you could ever dream
There's so much more,
Waiting for you than it seems
If you'll only believe
I know you wonder what your life's all about
When it comes to your future you have your doubts
There's only one who can make you feel secure
Who will lead you throught this life
(Where you'll spend eternity you can be sure)
You think the only heaven you'll ever know
Is the little bit of blue sky you see when your troubles seem to go for a little while
There's a lasting pleasure, a fuller measure of joy and peace
When you look inside and know you've been set free

My Fair One Lyrics

Awake from winters rest
Why cleave unto the dust?
From lower loves, desires, pursuits, and fears
Don't wait for passing moments
I'm calling for you now
I'm calling for you to come
Rise up my love (rise up)
My fair one, come away
Rise up my Love (my love)
My fair one, come away
Kindle sacred flames
Of love within my heart
My love I count you fair
This argument to rise
Don't wait for passing moments
I'm calling for you now
I'm calling for you to come

My Family Lyrics

I know we need each other like the trees need the rain
Our Father brought us together to love in His name
CHORUS:
I will thank my God every time I remember you
I will praise Him constantly for my brothers, my sisters, my family
You're my brothers, my sisters, my family
I know your love has shaped me like water in a gorge
My Maker knew what I'd need and He gave me much more
CHORUS
Somehow your smile sustains me like the blood in my veins
Your hands soften the blow of my private pain
Somehow we can be foriven like the turn of a leaf
His strength is made perfect when our spirits are weak
CHORUS
About this Song:
Mandee wrote "My Family" last summer for a group of high school students who took us in, cared for us, and fed us when we felt like, "the least of these. . ." We're so thankful for the amazing support system that the Father provides us in the strangers that become our long, lost friends and in our friends that become our family and in our families that continues to make us rich in their love for us.

Naive Orleans Lyrics

Come and go now as you please
Your actions write the melodies
To the songs that we sing
And you just sing
And I finally found that life goes on without you
And my world still turns when you're not around
Is this the way you want it?
Is this the way it has to be?
Sitting here beside you
But my heart's lost in New Orleans
Dreams come clever
Hearts now severed
Difference of forever
And I am lost there
Come and go now as you please
Your actions write the melodies
To the songs that we sing
And you just sing along out loud

Never Take Friendship Personal Lyrics

There's the hatchet grab my knife
When I woke there was nothing real in this life
But dreams are so intoxicating
When you're doing this alone
Gun rope brick on the way
But words have no meaning
When it's you that says "I really do care"
No, baby I really do care
Innocence gone
Never take friendship personal
You can't hold yourself together
Why should I hold you now?
In a sense gone
Never take friendship personal
You can't hold yourself together
Why should I hold you now?
Once the sceptic now the critic
And you have finally found a place of your own
Amongst the cold and timid souls
Where failure knows your name
Look around for the closest to blame
But look no further than the hands beneath your arms
And now you're six feet down buried with
With your passing fame
Oh, oh, oh, you lie
Tell me something more than what you hide
If you can't find yourself
Then how can I expect to find you
Oh, oh, oh, you cry
Tell me something more than what you try
The greatest tragedy is not your death
But that your life has no reason
That your life had no purpose

New Years Day Lyrics

By Carolyn Arends
I buy a lot of diaries
Fill them full of good intentions
Each and every New Year's Eve
I make myself a list
All the things I'm gonna change
Until January 2nd
So this time I'm making one promise
Chorus:
This will be my resolution
Every day is New Year's Day
This will be my resolution
Every day is New Year's Day
I believe it's possible
I believe in new beginnings
'Cause I believe in Christmas Day
And Easter morning too
And I'm convinced it's doable
'Cause I believe in second chances
Just the way that I believe in you
This will be my resolution
Every day is New Year's Day
This could start a revolution
Every day is...
One more chance to start all over
One more chance to change and grow
One more chance to grab a hold of grace
And never let it go

O Love Lyrics

O Love that will not let me go
I rest my weary soul in thee
I give thee back the life I owe
That in thine ocean depths its flow may richer, fuller be
O Light that followest all my way
I yield my flickering torch to thee
My heart restores its borrowed ray
That in thine sunshine's blaze its day may brighter, fairer be
CHORUS:
O Love that will not let me go
O Love that will not let me go
O Love that will not let me go
O Joy that seeks me through my pain
I cannot close my heart to thee
I trace the rainbow thru the rain
And feel the promise is not in vain, morn shall tearless be
CHORUS
O Cross that liftest up my head
I dare not ask to fly from thee
I lay in dust life's glory dead
Where from the ground there blossoms red;
Life shall endless be
CHORUS
About this Song:
While flipping through a hymnal, Mandee found, "O Love That Will Not Let Me Go," and she read the words to us. Carrie plucked out the melody on the piano, and we found that though the music was a little dated, the words were still as relevant and true as the day they were written. And we needed them.

One Syllable Words Lyrics

Psychobabble, legal-ese
People earning Ph.Ds
In Postmodern Paranoid Confusion
Self-indulgent rhetoric
Talk and talk until we're sick
Of arguments that end with no conclusion
Can't we make the point clear
Maybe what we need here are
One syllable words
Faith, hope and love
Truth, peace and trust
One syllable words
That's what we need, yeah
To listen to us talk you'd think
That twenty dollar words are cheap
But answers can't be bought for any tender
Constantly we complicate
Pointlessly pontificate
'Til things are getting worse instead of better
Look at how far we've come
Maybe we should learn some
One syllable words
Faith, hope and love
Truth, peace and trust
One syllable words
That's what we need, yeah
Everybody knows them
Maybe we should speak in
One syllable words
Faith, hope and love
Truth, peace and trust
One syllable words
That's what we need, yeah
Faith and hope and love
Truth and peace and trust
Dream and play and watch and pray
Learn and live and laugh and give
Reach and fly and seek and try
With all your heart and soul and mind
Yeah

There's a tree in my garden
Tall and dark with countless leaves
And it whispers in the air
And it dances in the breeze
And it sways in the storm
But it's hold is strong

That's come my way
And turns me round
To face the sky

There's a tree where waters flow
Leaves that fall for our healing
Scattered on the world below
Where angels dance
And voices sing

Paperthin Hymn Lyrics

When your only friends are hotel rooms
Hands are distant lullabies
If I could turn around I would tonight
These roads never seemed so long
Since your paper heart stopped beating
Leaving me suddenly alone
Will daybreak ever come
Whose going to call on Sunday morning?
Whose going to drive you home?
I just want one more chance
To place my arms in fragile hands
I thought you said forever
Over and over
A sleepless night becomes
Bitter oblivion
These thoughts run through my head
Over and over
Complaints of violins become my only friends
August evenings bring solemn warnings
To remember to kiss the one you love goodnight
You never know what temporal days may bring
So laugh, love, live free and sing
When life is in discord, "Praise ye the Lord"

Paradigm Lyrics

Everybody loves a rose,
But will you be thankful for the thorns?
Love is easy when you're loved,
But do you curse another when you're alone?
Chorus:
Oh, I give my life to You so I can gain it back again
Oh, I stand solid while the paradigm is shifting
You say live and let live,
But people are dying everyday
And you way what I don't know won't hurt me
But if what I do not know
Is the very thing I need,
Then I say
Humanity sees truth through a shattered window pane
That blocks the view,
And plants the seed
So we draw the curtains to close but I say
That the sun can still shine behind a closed mind
And sticks and stones do hurt
When tossed from the tongue of mankind

Reaching Lyrics

Words and music by Carolyn Arends
There's a time I can recall
Four years old and three feet tall
Trying to touch the stars and the cookie jar
And both were out of reach
And later on in my high school
It seemed to me a little cruel
How the right words to say always seemed to stay
Just out of reach
Well I should not have thought it strange
That growing causes growing pains
'Cause the more we learn the more we know
We don't know anything
But still it seems a tragic fate
Living with this quiet ache
The constant strain for what remains
Just out of reach
Chorus
We are reaching for the future
We are reaching for the past
And no matter what we have we reach for more
We are desperate to discover
What is just beyond our grasp
But maybe that's what heaven is for
There are times I can't forget
Dressed up in my Sunday best
Trying not to squirm and to maybe learn
A bit of what the preacher preached
And later lying in the dark
I felt a stirring in my heart
And though I longed to see what could not be seen
I still believed
I guess I shouldn't think it odd
Until we see the face of God
The yearning deep within us tells us
There's more to come
So when we taste of the divine
It leaves us hungry every time
For one more taste of what awaits
When heaven's gates are reached
Repeat Chorus
I believe that's what heaven is for
There's a time I can recall
Four years old and three feet tall
Trying to touch the stars and the cookie jar
And both were out of reach

Readyfuels Lyrics

This car turned over without a key or gasoline tonight
Feel everything on fire and I'm dressed to kill killing for your dress goodnight
Help me to wait on you, hesitate it too, cause I'm alone
Feel so jaded, contemplative, waiting for you
We're running hot tonight and it feels so good
Your arm in mine here near midnight and it feels so right
Girls and the boys chase down running hot tonight
Running down the ready fuels it's finally over, just get over
Time will tell if all turns out ok
Help me to realize my dream is dying redefine despair
I turned away
So look the other way tonight
Can you wait for me a little longer?
Can you wait for me a little stronger?

Revolution Lyrics

I see a mighty army that no one can destroy
They'll leave a trail of victory 'til judgment day
Then there comes a warning calling soldiers to war
But half of them were sleeping, the other half ignore
Chorus:
Why have we come here?
What lies in store?
Isn't this what we have all been waiting for?
Stand and be counted, because one thing I know,
We are all soldiers in the revolution of heart and mind and soul
The end of all your worrying, we have all that we need
So stifle all your fear and complacency
Yeah, we walk through the valley and we glow in the shadow of death
We don't march alone, no, and life is to short to rest
Oh, I am convinced that the consequence of Your effort is eternity
And paradise remains for those who chose to claim His promise as reality
Nor death
Nor life
Nor angels
Nor principalities
Nothing present can separate us from His love

Ride Lyrics

Wanna know how I got to be this way...
Wanna know if you had it would you be the same...
I can tell that you're tired of playing a losing game..
I'm checkin' you 'cause I got love for you...
I gotta let you know that you don't have to lose
Come take a ride on the...
The other side if you're...
Lookin' for love that you...
You cannot find...
'Cause you gotta know love comes in many many ways...
But the love that God give you will never never change
I know you feel that time has left you by yourself...
You can just chill 'cause God's been with you ever step
And even when you took a ride to ease the pain inside...
Don't ever think He's been away from you...
He's got a million angels who've been watchin' for you come on
Come take a ride on the...
The other side if you're...
Lookin' for love that you...
You cannot find...
'Cause you gotta know love comes in many many ways...
But the love that God give you will never never change
Well it's alright if you wanna wanna take a ride...
Well it's alright if you wanna wanna take a ride

Runaway Heart Lyrics

Sin is creepin' like a snake in her direction
It's the little things he says that carry her far away
Now she aches for a friend that's familiar
Her feet hurt cause they walked her into this place
But most of the time, she feels nothing inside
CHORUS:
She is my runaway heart, and we're both lonesome for home
It didn't happen all at once
But the wandering took me real slow
Real slow
She's not quite sure where her next meal will come from
She scrambles and she scrapes, and what is not hers she takes
Living just to survive is killing her inside
CHORUS
So she's a missing person who wants to be caught
Life on her own is not like she thought
If you left the 99
She wouldn't be hard to find
So rescue this runaway
CHORUS
About this Song:
I think that most of us who grew up in church have no trouble seeing the splinters in everyone else's eyes, but we don't know what to do with the log in our own, or even how it got there. This song is not about forsaking God in a single, big mistake, but about the series of small decisions, like choosing not to love our brother, that lead us away from the heart of God. Compassion comes when we realize that our wandering hearts are all the same, and they all need to find their way home.

Runaways Lyrics

Come closer now
I know your desire is to be desired
Steal a kiss yet call us friends
Distance is the theif in which you conspire
Time and time and time will tell
Time will tell or tear us apart
You're miles and miles and miles away
Silence reveals where we really are
You only stand to break my heart
I can tell it by the way you runaway,
Runaway girl
You only stand to break my heart
I can tell it by the way you runaway,
Runaway girl
Runaway, runaway girl
It's clearer now
You're nowhere into giving
Giving into, giving into me
It's your fault
You're like a rare disease
I know you're in love
With love I believe
Do you expect me to wait here?
All alone in my thoughts and fears
My whole life could crash before your eyes
Hope one day that you realize
This isn't the way it's supposed to be
This is your life girl now
Without me
May regrets from us built up inside
As feelings for you are buried alive
Buried alive
You only stand to break my heart
I can tell it by the way you runaway,
Runaway girl
You only stand to break my heart
I can tell it by the way you runaway,
Runaway girl
Runaway, runaway girl
I only stand to break your heart
You can tell it by the way I walkaway,
Runaway girl
I only stand to break your heart
You can tell it by the way I runaway,
Runaway girl
Runaway, runaway girl

Seize The Day Lyrics

By Carolyn Arends
I know a girl who was schooled in Manhattan
She reads dusty books and learns phrases in Latin
She is an author, or maybe a poet
A genius but it's just this world doesn't know it
She works on her novel most every day
If you laugh she will say
Chorus:
Seize the day, seize whatever you can
'Cause life slips away just like hourglass sand
Seize the day, pray for grace from God's hand
Then nothing will stand in your way
Seize the day
Well I know a doctor, a fine young physician
Left his six-figure job for a mission position
He's healing the sick in an African clinic
He works in the dirt and writes home to the cynics
He says "We work through the night so most every day
As we watch the sun rise we can say
Chorus
Well I know a man who's been doing some thinking
He's as bitter and cold as the whiskey he's drinking
He's talking 'bout fear, about chances not taken
If you listen to him you can hear his heart breaking
He says "One day you're a boy and the next day you're dead
I wish way back when someone had said
Chorus
Well one thing I've noticed, wherever I wander
Everyone's got a dream he can follow or squander
You can do what you will with the days you are given
I'm trying to spend mine on the business of living
So I'm singing my songs off of any old stage
You can laugh if you want, I'll still say
Chorus

Show Me Lyrics

Show me a sign to follow
Give me a prayer to pray
Send an angel of light from heaven
To show me another way
B-SECTION:
I've seen my life as time gone by
Questions unanswered but still ask why
You know I have tried to prove myself
Now I really need your mercy & help
CHORUS:
Show me another way
And I'll promise you I'll never stray
Show me another way
And I'll follow you come whatever may
Give me a chance to start over
Give me a reason to live
Make a way out of no way for me
A peace only you can gvie

Someday Lyrics

Ready or not the years are blurring
Running away the mind is turning
Skip to the end to find the meaning
Theoughts are fading, yet I wonder still
Like it or not your eyes are open
Playing around, the circles going
Face of a child, your mind is old
The clock ran down before I could begin
Chorus
I wish we all could win
I wish we all could smile
I wish we all could make our mothers proud
Want it or not you ocan't just leave it
Throw it away, I can't believe it
Walking for days, I know you'll see that
Times are changing, soon we'll be the same
Chorus
I wish we all could win
I wish we all could smile
I wish we all could make our mothers proud
Bridge
Someday, Someday, Someday
You'll come around
Someday, Someday, Someday
Your time will come
There's nothing more that I can do
I know we all can make throught
I hope that someday you will see
Chorus
I wish we all could win
I wish we all could smile
I wish we all could make our mothers proud
Bridge
Someday, Someday, Someday
You'll come around
Someday, Someday, Someday
Your time will come
There's nothing more that I can do
I know we all can make throught
I hope that someday you will see

Something Electric Lyrics

Millions wander around this place
Bewildered wonder on their face
There's something electric
Jagged rocks taht reach and pry
Water falls through shattered sky
There's something electric
Silect impact
As the fountain meets its fate
There's something electric
Chorus:
Be still, don't try to explain
Keep listening
Oh just know, that God made you something electric
Rising in the east
The horizon is alive
There's something electric
Crimson splashes
Chips the break of day
There's something electric
Could it be the colors?
Could it be the way the sun chases the night away?
I don't know but there's something electric
(Light decides to rest while evening takes center stage
Shadows grow
Making crosses seem more like skyscrapers
The dust innocently passes
While His mother pauses to weep
She sees Him hanging there like some
Link between severed loves
Or some
Ornament of divine madness
But in His last breath
In His last thought
He knew You were something electric)

Songs Of Ascent, Part 1 Lyrics

When Mercy comes to me, as soft as the sky
And faith like a strong arm around me lies
And life is beginning, like springtime in flower
My soul is awakened, with truth to astound me
An emptiness for You to fill
My soul a cavern for Your sea
And You are the flowering bough of creation
From You cascades music, like a million stars
And here in the purest light of the heavens
Mysteries revealing, in songs that surround me
An emptiness for You to fill
My soul a cavern for Your sea
(with acknowledgement to George MacDonald and Ray Simpson) NB latin words used on this and other tracks quoted from 'Altus Prosator' - a 6th century poem attributed to Columba

Sovereign Hands Lyrics

Sovereign hands
Nailed to the humble cross
Scars you bear
Speak of your redeeming love
No wonder I call you Saviour
No wonder I'm singing
God of all heavens
Now til forever
High above the universe
God of all redemption
God of my surrender
Glory is yours
Sovereign God
Laying down the holy light
Heavens son
Willing to be crucified
No one to I call you Saviour
No wonder I am singing
God of all heavens
Now til forever
High above the universe
God of all redemption
God of my surrender
Glory is yours
Ho- holy ho- holy ho- holy Lord
Ho- holy ho- holy ho- holy Lord
Open hands
Given to a sovereign cause
All I am
God will be forever yours

Starlight Lyrics

Darkness can never hide,
Night shines like the day
Arms who's reach,
Through Heaven and Hell
Evernear
In starlight and sunshine, so marvelous,
Thoughts can't contain In story and song,
So marvelous, words can't define love
(Define love)
Thoughts for me an endless dream,
I sleep to sounds of love
A whisper wakens
My ears to hear
You are there

Stationary Stationery Lyrics

Do they not have pen or paper where you are?
'Cause I haven't heard from you in ages
I relive each memory from time to time
Read notes exchanged
With all the scented pages
It's coming back, it's all comin back to me now
Tell me everything turned out alright
'Cause I'm where we said
That we'd meet tonight
Does he treat you like you want
Does he ask to take your hand
Does he believe in dreams we talked about
When with no music we danced
I thought you said that you'd come find me
I thought you said you'd be home by now
I heard you say that you'd come back here
So I wrote to remind you somehow
Dance by yourself and
Think of me when you do
I'm not sure you understand
What this means to me, what you do to me
I'm willing to prove
That you're the one
I regret to slip away
Now I know it was only you
That I've been searching for
Been missing all this time
I thought you said that you'd come find me
I thought you said you'd be home by now
I heard you say that you'd come back here
So I wrote to remind you somehow
I thought you said that you'd come find me
I thought you said you'd be home by now
I heard you say that you'd come back here
So I wrote to remind you somehow
Let the past be past
Let's start today
Letters won't do
I need to see your face
Tell me where to meet
I'll tell you why we shouldn be
(I'll tell you why we shouldn be)

Still Her Little Child Lyrics

Words and music by Ray Boltz and Steve Millikan
When she laid him in a manger
He was still her little child
In a city filled with strangers
He was still her little child
Though the inn was full
And the night was cold
She held Him close and smiled
When she laid Him in a manger
He was still her little child
When the angels called Him Savior
He was still her little child
When the wise men gave Him treasures
He was still her little child
When the shepherds bowed before Him
A star shone all the while
When the angels called Him Savior
He was still her little child
When He grew in strength and wisdom
He was still her little child
When He spoke the people listened
He was still her little child
When He healed the lame and dying
They would follow Him for miles
And when he grew
In strength and wisdom
He was still her little child
When the people turned against Him
He was still her little child
When they shouted crucify Him
He was still her little child
And when they nailed Him
To a wooden cross
Then we were reconciled
When she held His broken body
He was still her little child
He was still her little child

Thank God I'm Not The One Lyrics

How could You walk when You went down that dusty street
How could You speak when all your friends checked out
How could You love after the great betrayal
How could You reach out when they nailed You down
Chorus:
True as true can be
That's what they say You are to me when I'm so fake
Does Your heart ache
If I had been the one I would not have been that strong
If I had been the one, yeah, I'd have been long gone
How could You hang on with Your mama crying
How could You keep on breathing in and out
How could You watch while Your whole world was dying
Did it all happen cause we let You down
Repeat Chorus
And all the things we think of as eternal would come undone
All I have to say is when I'm praying
Is "Thank God I'm not the One"

The Day Will Never Come Lyrics

Words and music by Carolyn Arends
O my darling, how I wish that I could guarantee
I will always be the things you want and need from me
But life is funny, honey, we both know that that's a fact
And looking at it honestly I can imagine that
I may get crazy - I might get weak
I will forget to think before I speak
But if you're asking if this love will keep
I will not lie to you - I won't deny the truth
The sky could fall on us
The sun could just combust
The earth could turn to dust
And still, whatever may be
When all is said and done
The odds are ten to none
The day will never come
When I don't love you baby
O come what may, the day will never come
O my darling, there are times when I don't recognize
The woman underneath my skin, the man behind your eyes
But love is funny, honey, we both know what it can do
I never fail to catch my breath upon the sight of you
I may get selfish - I might get sad
I will forget sometimes just what I have
But I would have to be completely mad
To ever want to leave - and so you must believe
The sky could fall on us
The sun could just combust
The earth could turn to dust
And still, whatever may be
When all is said and done
The odds are ten to none
The day will never come
When I don't love you baby
O come what may, the day will never come

In the freedom we know
We're gonna dance dance dance
In the freedom we know
We're gonna dance dance dance
In the freedom we know
Because the freedom we know is gonna last forever
The world turns in all of its ways
But I'm soul set on a holy name
And when all earth is said and done
Still I will praise Him
There's no end to the love that He gives
And now broken dreams have life again
In the hope of the risen King
So let us praise Him
A mystery unthinkable
That He took the fall just to save my soul
Now to love is the life I know
On and on and on we'll be singin'
Soul set free in the One I love
Oh come on come on
And let the whole earth sing
In the freedom we know
So come on come on and praise Him
Come come all the lost and the found
Let us rise up with a holy sound
All the earth unified as one
Just to praise Him
In full view with nothing to hide
Like a city on a hill we're gonna shine
In the light of Your freedom
Let us praise Him
We're gonna dance dance dance
In the freedom we know
We're gonna dance dance dance
In the freedom we know
We're gonna dance dance dance

Chorus
So many living for the love of power
Wanting more until their final hour
The day has come for us to be part of
The ones who find a ruler in the power of love
Oh lei de lei de lei de lei the power of love
Rich man -- your pockets are full
Money -- it burns a whole in your soul
Poor man -- with the hungry heart
You can be the place where the changes start
We'll sing it
Repeat Chorus
Nations -- your raging must cease
Listen -- the Prince of Peace
Is calling those with hearts to hear
To rise up in His name where there once was fear
Do you believe it?

Cool breeze on the water top
Smooth shine on a silver rock

Lose myself
Cover me over
Find my life

Cut deep into shallow ground

Winding to the blue sea off in the distance
And Sundays always come around

The Stand Lyrics

You stood before creation
Forever within Your hand
You spoke all life into motion
My soul now is in His hand (?)
You stood before my failure
Carried the Cross for my shame
My sin went upon Your shoulders
My soul now is in His hand (?)
So what can I say
What can I do
But offer this heart O God
Completely to You
I walk upon salvation
The Spirit of light in me
My soul to declare Your promise
My life in Your hands
So I'll stand
With arms high and heart abandoned
In awe of the One who gave it all
So I'll stand
My soul Lord to You surrendered
All I am is Yours

The Synmphony of) Blase Lyrics

Are there no shadows where you are?
I can see everything as day
Problems that you try to hide away
Pushing me aside (You're pushing me aside)
Could the winter calm come twice?
Because your heart seems so cold tonight
Thirst for substance somehow isn't right
It's killing me inside (It's killing you inside)
Killing me inside
I don't wanna be where you are
I don't wanna be here even now
I don't wanna be by your side
If something isn't right
If something isn't right
This is our last goodnight
Say what you will
Say all that you can
Words have no meaning
When I've seen where you've been
This is our last goodnight
Say what you will
Say all that you can
This is our last goodbye
This is where love ends
Are you so naive to right and wrong
How could you watch innocence forgone
Does what we've done ever really belong?
It wasted me away (I feel so wasted away)
God, if you can hear me out alright
Please take these feelings for her inside
My chest hurts when I breathe tonight
It's wasting me away (You're wasting me away)
You're wasting me away

And called me Yours forever

To stand for all we believe in
So I for one am gonna
Give my praise to You
Today today it's all or nothing
All they way

To give You praise
In everything I do

The Way You Are Lyrics

Until You came I was just the same
As everybody else
Whoever saw the light and turned away
You love me now
You loved me then
And every now and then
You show me how it would be if I'd gone the other way
After all this time I've come to find my soul's fragility
But You've rectified my frailty by your strength
Chorus
It's like the sun swallowed up by the earth
Like atomics bombs in reverse
As if a glass could contain the sea
That's the way You are in me
That's the way You are
Now here I stand looking back
To the way things used to be
But I will never be alone again
You're with me
And now I see
What it means to me
To be a part of such a mystery
After all this time I've come to find my soul's fragility
But You've rectified my frailty by your strength
Chorus
It's like the sun swallowed up by the earth
Like atomics bombs in reverse
As if a glass could contain the sea

There Is A Love Lyrics

V 1: I've had a lot of thought about this thing called love
And I've wondered how our feelings came to stay
So many use a love for another thing called lust
Confusing hearts so they can have their way
Sorry I can't play that game, my head is on too straight
I respect ly life, so never underestimate
I know God has the on who will love me enough to wait
Never sellin short because I know that there's a love
CHORUS: There is a love [ That's worth the wait to find what you believe in ]
There is a love [ To find someone who'll stand & say the vow ]
There is a love [ There is a love that says I'll wait for you respect you in the way God showed me how ]
V 2: I've come to the conclusion that we must shed the illusion
That love is just a way that you'll be used
That love with respect will never come to you
You don't have to search around, rely on Him & stand your ground
Delight yourself with the things from above
Open your eyes, & you'll find that there is a love
CHORUS
BRIDGE: Don't give in to the ways of the world
And lies that they tell you [ Tha lies that they tell ]
Don't believe in the tricks that your mind plays on you
Cause when it's all said & done, in the end you find
That you know there's a love

There Stood A Lamb Lyrics

Words and music by Ray Boltz
He was standing in heaven
With tears in his eyes
Saying, tell me this isn't so
For there was one in heaven
And no one on earth
Worthy to open the scroll
Then one of the elders
Said, John don't you cry
It was all part of the plan
Then in the center
Of God's glorious throne
Hallelujah, there stood a lamb
And they sang worthy
Worthy of honor and praise
They were casting down crowns
And praising His name
When he cried, who is worthy?
I can hear Jesus saying, I am
Oh, praise God, forever
There stood a Lamb
Now open your Bible
Open your heart
It's clear we are in last days
And he said I'll come quickly
So don't' be surprised
When he comes back to take us away
And feeble excuses won't get very far
When you find yourself
There at His throne
If you know Jesus
And He is your Lord
Hallelujah, you won't be alone
And we'll sing worthy
Worthy of honor and praise
We'll be casting down crowns
And praising His name
When he says, are you worthy?
I can hear Jesus saying, I am
Oh, praise God, forever
There stood a Lamb
And we'll sing worthy
Worthy of honor and praise
As we cast down our crowns
We'll be praising his name
When he says, are you worthy?
I can hear Jesus saying, I am
Oh, praise God, forever
Praise God, forever
Praise God, forever
There stood a Lamb

There You Are Lyrics

Written by Carolyn Arends
I was hoping you would write to me a message in the stars
As if the stars themselves were not enough
And I awaited your arrival here from some place very far
As if I couldn't feel your constant touch
Why did I think that you'd send thunder
To wake me from my slumber
When anytime I open up my eyes
Chorus:
There you are - loving me like crazy
There you are - though I am unaware
There you are - when my heart is doubting
Even there you are
I was waiting for a miracle and hoping for a sign
As if each breath I take is not a gift
And I was acting just as if the way you gave your life for mine
Didn't have my foolish heart convinced
What did I think could cause this hunger
Did I ever stop to wonder
Why every time I open my eyes
Repeat Chorus
I was hoping you would write to me a message in the stars
As if the stars themselves were not enough

This Day Will Never Come Lyrics

Words and music by Carolyn Arends
O my darling, how I wish that I could guarantee
I will always be the things you want and need from me
But life is funny, honey, we both know that that's a fact
And looking at it honestly I can imagine that
I may get crazy - I might get weak
I will forget to think before I speak
But if you're asking if this love will keep
I will not lie to you - I won't deny the truth
The sky could fall on us
The sun could just combust
The earth could turn to dust
And still, whatever may be
When all is said and done
The odds are ten to none
The day will never come
When I don't love you baby
O come what may, the day will never come
O my darling, there are times when I don't recognize
The woman underneath my skin, the man behind your eyes
But love is funny, honey, we both know what it can do
I never fail to catch my breath upon the sight of you
I may get selfish - I might get sad
I will forget sometimes just what I have
But I would have to be completely mad
To ever want to leave - and so you must believe
The sky could fall on us
The sun could just combust
The earth could turn to dust
And still, whatever may be
When all is said and done
The odds are ten to none
The day will never come
When I don't love you baby
O come what may, the day will never come

This House Lyrics

I shut all my windows
They protect me from the storm
I'm alone but I wait for someone
One who keeps the lights on
One who keeps the house warm
I feel a swaying rhythm
If we get swept to sea I'll be happy
It's all we wish for now
I wish you'd keep the lights down
I wish you'd keep the house warm
We have enough we can handle it
If we don't make I will fall apart
All is in vain for us.
I think we can make it now
I think that we can make it
I wish you'd keep the lights down
I wish you'd keep the house warm

This I Know Lyrics

By Carolyn Arends and Connie Harrington
So much to learn in this modern age
Sometimes it hurts my brain
So much is new but we're still the same
We all still search for happiness
So I keep coming back to this
Chorus:
Hope and love make a life worth living
Lack thereof makes a man grow old
God is good and Jesus loves me
This I know
What I have found to be true and wise
Won't win the Nobel Prize
But the more I learn the more I realize
Though life remains a mystery
It still comes down to simple things

This Is The Stuff Lyrics

Words and music by Carolyn Arends and Connie Harrington
Riding along on a big yellow school bus
Elmer's glue and a brand new lunch box
Writing my name for the very first time
With a pencil that was bigger than me
From jumping rope and skipping school
To doing things that grown-ups do
Life goes by like that big old bus
If you miss it, it's history
Paper dolls and paper weights
Scraped up knees and hearts that break
Dreams to dream and plans to make
Love to give and love to take
Chorus:
This is the stuff
The smallest moments
This is the stuff
I need to notice
This is the stuff
Life is made of
Walking along as my life unravels
Looking back at the road I've travelled
All the things that matter most
Have caught me by surprise
Misty eyes and silent prayers
Promises and secrets shared
Friends that keep you up all night
Laughing till you cry
Life's made up of little things
Ties that bind and apron strings
New beginnings, old routines
Love and heartache in between
Repeat Chorus

Til I See You Lyrics

The greatest love
That anyone could ever know
That overcame the cross and grave
To find my soul
And 'til I see you face to face
And grace amazing takes me home

I live to see your your kingdom come
And in my heart I pray
You'd let your will be done
And 'til I see you face to face
And grace amazing takes me home

I will live to bring you praise
I will live a child in awe of You..

And 'til I see you face to face
And grace amazing takes me home

I will live to bring you praise
I will live a child in awe of You..

Today Has Wings Lyrics

Today has grown wings and we're welcoming change
With expectation, open eyes, and outstretched arms.
We're asking "sweet spirit place your mark on us.
Sweet spirit, let our mortality be swallowed by life."
We're shedding this thick,
Numb and overly insensitive skin
And trading it for something we can live with
To live and breathe without restriction.
Now this is your release.
We've burned out the eyes of restraint.
Don't hold back.
This is the release.
We're changed from within.
Jesus You've proved where the real freedom's from.

Touching Him Lyrics

Words and music by Ray Boltz
A woman came to Simon's house
She knew the Lord was there
And when she walked into the room
She was greeted by the stares
She surely must have shocked a few
Of the people gathered there
As with tear filled eyes
And trembling hand
She took down her long, dark hair
And from an alabaster vessel
Precious ointment filled her hand
And as she wept
She kissed His feet
And began anointing them
CHORUS:
With her hands
She was touching Him
The Alpha, The Omega
The Beginning and The End
And with her hands
She was holding onto His
And the source of life
Was right there in her hands
Now Simon said within his heart,
Lord, if you only knew
The kind of woman
That's touching You
But Jesus knew about her past
He knew about the sin
And yet He saw in her
A repentant heart
That had come to worship Him
CHORUS
Now tell me why do we gather
Together in His name?
Are we like the ones who merely watch?
Tell me, is that why we came?
Or are we like this sister?
Do we truly enter in?
In Spirit and in Truth
Have you come to worship Him?
And with your hands
Are you touching Him?
And with your heart
Are you loving Him?
And with your hands
Are you holding onto His?
Then the source of life
Is right there in your hands

Truth About God Lyrics

Chorus:
I found the answers
You need are you listening?
I'll tell you the truth about God
My eyes haven't seen Him
These hands haven't touched Him
I've never seen the wind
But I felt the breeze today
I don't know where it came from
And I don't know where it went
But this kite can't deny it's in the sky
Just like a lost man
Stumbling through the scorching sand
With flashes and mirages all around
The sun is going down
And everything he's found
Has left him further out than when he begun
Bloody are his fingers
And sweat drips from his brow
He's got it in his mind
That, digging deeper, he will find
Satisfaction in the sand dripping from his hands
But you don't hear me

Undeveloped Story Lyrics

Taking all what others have hassled
Looking back to darker days getting me down
And if this is chaos
I think that I'm in love with clamor
Tides are turning
Never understood my undeveloped story
But it makes sense to me, you make sense to me
When it all falls down, I'll still be right here
When it all falls down, we'll still be right here
Once in a lifetime, I could feel this way
Once in a lifetime, you could feel it too
Cancel your black subscription
I'm nowhere near a cigarette
And I'm cut clear as you wander
Past this lonely street and wonder
Dance all night, dance all night
The kids are all here, and we're downtown
We're past the morning glory
It's ten past two
And I'm still working on forty

Until The World Lyrics

I lose myself to find in me
The way it really ought to be
It's hard to say I love you
It's hard to say I need you
If all is well it's hard to tell
It hurts to think of someone else
It's hard to say I'll be there
It's hard to say I really, really care
Chorus
Until the world won't turn
'Till the planets burn
Until the sun dies I'll be there
Until the heavens come
'Til this lie is done
Until the world dies I'll be there
I can't see outside myself
How can I love for someone else
It's hard to say I'm sorry
It's hard to say forgive me
I can't believe you're here with me
Into the future I can't see
It's hard to say forever
It's hard to say I'll never ever go
Chorus
Until the world won't turn
'Till the planets burn
Until the sun dies I'll be there
Until the heavens come
'Til this lie is done

Wait Lyrics

Wait, I can hardly wait
To look into Your face
When the world disappears into Your eyes
Wait, I can hardly wait
To hear your sweet voice say
You've done well, my good and faithful son
Breathe, I can hardly breathe
In anticipation
Waithing for the day to come
When You will shine on me
Wait, I can hardly wait
To bow at Your feet
Kiss the scars that bore my sins away
I can hardly breathe In anticipation
Waiting for the day to come
When You will shine on me
Wait, I can hardly wait

Wave After Wave Lyrics

Wave after wave rolls on
And the water falls and the line is drawn
Wave after wave rolls in
And the line is gone, where my feet have been
Hills that I know are there
Hidden from my view by the misty air
Light shining through the grey
Turns the water deep shades of lilac blue
Music in every sound
Light beyond each cloud, hope in every dream
Songs like a healing breeze
Every breath inhale and the goodness feel
I witness the power, great mystery telling
In every moment, with every swelling wave
I feel the depth of your love and devotion
My heart like the bird that dives into this ocean blue
Lanes that have brought me here
Framed in season flowers, lined in summer green
Music in every sound
Light beyond each cloud, hope in every dream
Songs like a healing breeze
Every breath inhale and the goodness feel
Rise from the bird above
From the flower below in a song of love

We Dreamt In Heist Lyrics

This is a black market reformation
Keep your lips closed
And don't you ever give away our underground location
This is a black tie affair
Don't ever close your mouth
And we'll stay here until someone falls in their own snare
I had this planned all along, and I brought you here for this
So tie your mask on and pretend that nothing's wrong
And I'll try to stay awake as long as I can
And I'll try to stay here with you
This is a black market reformation, how does it feel
To be under the gun
Last ones to laugh pull the trigger here on the run
You can hide the money, I'll mark an X
I am above the law and you're the order, you make
Everything make sense
And I know Mexico is south of here, beautiful this time of year
So let's jump the border when the coast is clear
Salvation waits at ocean shore, we won't have to lie no more
Don't you worry baby I'll be right here

We Know Lyrics

I can see the God of our protection
He's been a constant help in my time of trouble
We will not be afraid on the day when the earth will shake
And the mountains will crumble to the sea
And I can see our Father descending from His heavens
And I can see His children arising from the Earth
And I can see the Son as He's gathering the nations
Where every knee will bow and every tongue confess that...
CHORUS:
We know, that You are God
We know, that You are God
We know, that You are God
That You are God
I can see us all in pure perfection
I can see the Lord as He's seated on the throne
And we will not be afraid on the day when all creation sees
Will see the glory of the Son
And I can see the angels soaring through the Heavens
And I can see the elders laying down their crowns
And I can hear the joy of eternal celebration
Singing 'Holy is the Lord'
CHORUS
I can see the angels soaring through the Heavens
I can see the elders laying down their crowns

We've Been Waiting For You Lyrics

Words and music by Carolyn Arends
Let me hold you close, I know you're frightened
Go ahead and cry, I understand
You were safe and you were warm
And then suddenly without a warning
Things began to change
It must have seemed so strange
To all at once be traveling a journey
All the way to this delivery room
But baby you are not alone
Your room is ready, let's go home
You're gonna like it here
Let me make it clear that
We've been waiting for you
We're so glad you came
We've been looking forward
To showing you the place
There's so much in store and
We've been waiting for you
I know it can take some getting used to
But this old world is where you're meant to be
Life is something not to miss
The taste of ice cream, your first kiss
And when love takes your hand
You will understand why
We've been waiting for you
We're so glad you came
We've been looking forward
To showing you the place
There's so much in store and
We've been waiting for you
And watching you come into this world
Baby, you've made me believe
Another journey awaits us
So when I have to leave
I am pretty sure that I'll be frightened
But even if I cry, please understand
I will know I'm not alone
When my room is ready I'll go home
And when I reach the gate
I'm going to hear them saying
We've been waiting for you
We're so glad you came
We've been looking forward
To showing you the place
There's so much in store and
We've been waiting for you

What I Wouldn't Give Lyrics

Words and music by Carolyn Arends
Sacrifices never made, desperate prayers I left unprayed
Forgiveness not asked for, love not confessed
Compromises all refused, coat of armor not removed
Everything guarded till nothing was left
But the image of a face I can't forget
The bitter, lasting taste of my regret
Chorus
What I wouldn't give to be younger and wiser
What I wouldn't give to be yours once more
What I wouldn't give to be less of a miser
And give you what I wouldn't give before
All the lines I wouldn't cross, battles won while love was lost
I built my fortress on blood, sweat, and fears
Terrified you'd run away, I made sure you couldn't stay
I packed all your bags, I cried all your tears
I locked the door behind you and I knew
I'd give anything to be with you
Repeat Chorus
My situation's tragic
My condition is so sad
What I wouldn't give you
Cost me all that I had

What Love Looks Like Lyrics

By Carolyn Arends and Wayland Patton
Something's happening down by the shore
There is a blind man who is not blind anymore
Everybody's talking - how can this be?
A little mud, a gentle touch, and now he can see
He squints up at the light
And he wipes the tears away
And he whispers when he sees his healer's face
Chorus:
Oh - this is what love looks like
Oh - this is what love looks like
I never dreamed I would see such a sight
This is what love looks like.
There is no sorrow in all the world
Deep as a father's who has lost his little girl
He begs the healer - come to her side
A whispered word, the daughter stirs
And now she's alive
And over by the door
Her father stands amazed
And when he tells the story he will say
Chorus
Well I have seen it too, in the ways a soul can see
When I doubt like Thomas all these things are shown to me
The nail prints in his hand, the wound deep in his side
The body has been broken but his arms are open wide
Chorus

And when times get bad, the road gets rough,
the goin' gets tough;

What shall I render unto the Lord
for all of His goodness, goodness.

In love never to end,
To call You more than Lord,
Glorious friend.

'Cause I know You gave it all for me,
And when all else fades,
My soul will dance with You,
Where the love lasts forever.
(Bridge)
And forever I will sing,
Lord forever I will sing,
Of how You gave
Your life away,
Just to save me,
Lord You saved me.
With You, where the love lasts forever.

With A Little Faith Lyrics

I'd say I'm always happy if you want me to
But sometimes it's not that easy
My life is not as perfect as it seems to be
It's simply God's amazing grace
I'm here to share His love with you
There is no need to fear to live this life of love
CHORUS :
With a little faith, with a little love
I know we can make it
I know we can make it
With a little help sent from God above
I know we can make it
I know we can make it through
I know what it takes to be yourself
Instead of when they put you down
I can't understand why you choose to hide
When you should run to the strength I found
If only you'd see for yourself
Then you could know the one
Who loves you so much more
If only I could help you out
But God's the only one
What are you waiting for
Repeat Chorus
It seems to wash away
Can't find a will to go on
But I am here to say there's hope
You must carry on
Jesus will light your way
He'll give you all that you need
No need to be afraid all you've got to do is believe
Repeat Chorus

You Lyrics

My heart is as frail as a dove
And my spirit is as weak as a rose
See my sorrow, feel my pain
You're my refuge, You're my reason
My strength in this beautiful place

Chorus
You're in my heart, You're in my soul
You are my heaven, You're my home
You're my best friend, You're my true love
You are my treasure, You're my God
I watch as the mountains fall down
And the rivers part at your feet
Your creation sings Your praise
Even wings obey and angels bow down
At Your beautiful voice
That's where I find God
~Chorus~
You're in my heart, You're in my soul
You are my heaven, You're my home
You're my best friend, You're my true love
You are my treasure, You're my God
You're in my heart, You're in my soul

You Mean The World To Me Lyrics

I sit here with your dreams.
They are screaming with
A perpetuate and constant flowing.
Rhyming and flowing.
You mean the world to me.
Are we ok? Maybe we can talk about it.
Do you feel prettier now?
Do you feel?
I can make this last
And I can hold you tightly
When loneliness has never felt so alive.
You look beautiful now.
You look prettier now.
You mean the world to me.
Are you ok? Maybe we can talk about it.
