Take Me


Take Lord and Receive all of my liberty
All I have and hold, Lord you have given to me.

REFRAIN:
Give me only your love and your grace,
That's enough for me,
I'm rich enough, I can't replace.
All that you've done for me (Take me)

Search my heart and soul,
Whatever you find, I give you control.
Take this heart of mine,
I give it to you to have and to hold.

REFRAIN

Bridge: I close my eyes and I let go
I will not fear Lord, I give you control
Take my hand here we go,
Lead me on I need nothing more

Take me
Take me

He'll Carry You
 

He knows your heart
He knows your pain
He knows the strength it took,
just too simply breathe today
He sees the tears that you cry
He knows your soul is aching to know why
He hears your prayers each humble word
When you said you couldn't face another day,
he understood
He knows the path that you will find
Though you felt alone hes never left your side

Chorus:
He knew there'd be moments when no earthly words,
Could take away your sorrow.
And no human eyes could see what you're going through.
When you've taken your last step, and done all that you can do,
He will lift your heavy load and carry you,

He'll bring you peace and leave you hope
And in the darkest night he'll comfort you
Until you know the sun will rise and each new day
You will have the strength to live again

Chorus:
And when there are moments when no earthly words
can take away your sorrow
And no human eyes could see what you're going through
When you're taken your last step and done all that you can do
He will lift your heavy load and carry you

He hears you when you re crying in the night
He hears you when your soul longs to find
Till the morning will come
And the light of the dawn reassures

Chorus:
That in the moments when no earthly words can take away your sorrow
And no human eyes could see what you're going through
When you've taken your last step and done all that you can do
He will lift your heavy load and carry you

Rejoice
 

Where did I misplace my faith,
Where did I set it down.
Which one the day that I forgot,
What this was all about?

And I came so close,
To throwing it all away
But I am taking it back again

So come and rejoice
Come and rejoice
What was lost is found

When I did get so sensible?
Make me a fool again,
My life was a half empty glass,
Now its half full again.

And this road we take,
Is never and easy place.
But somehow we found our way.

So come and rejoice
Come and rejoice
And you don't even have to make a sound
I feel it in your touch, I see it in your eyes what was lost is found.

Nothing to Lose

Someone leaves and closes the door,
And you're sure love's over forever.
And you've wasted too much time believing
You have no time anymore.

Well, I know how hard it can be,
And I know how frightened you're feeling.
And I know the pain of starting over
No one knows better than me.

But the world calls your name,
I can see your breath on the window of life.
Take my hand
I promise something new will start.
You have nothing to lose but your heart.

Let your tears fall like the rain.
You and I once filled up the ocean.
But if I knew then what I know now,
There's not a thing I would fear.

'Cause the world calls your name,
I can see your breath on the window of life.
Take my hand
I promise something new will start.
You have nothing to lose but your heart.

My Heart
 

Down in the valley the shepherd sees
His flock is close at hand.
And in the night sky a star is falling
Down from someones hand.

Somewhere, somewhere, I've got to get somewhere.
It's not too late, it's not too late, I've got to get somewhere.
This time, I will take the lead somehow.
This time, you wont have to show me how.

When dreams come crashing down like trees,
I don't know what love can do.

When life is hanging in the breeze,
I don't know what love can do.

My heart, my heart.
I've got to keep my heart,
It's not too late, it's not too late I've got to keep my heart.

My love, I will give to you it's true.
Although, I'm not sure what love can do.

Somewhere, somewhere
It's not too late; I've got to get somewhere.

Somewhere someone has a dream come true,
Somehow someone has a dream come true.

Be Still
 

He is here for the broken, life to the one whose undone.
He is peace to the wounded,
Hope for the helpless one.
He is here, he is here.

Refrain: Be still my soul, be still.
Be still my soul, be still.
Wait patiently upon the Lord
Be Still my soul be still

When the waves rise against me,
And winds try to blow me way.
I will stand on the mountain, safe in your arms I will stay. I will sing

Refrain

Be still and know he is God. He is here. He is here.
Be still and know he is God. He is here. He is here.

Refrain

Wait patiently upon the LORD.
be still my soul be still

What Wondrous Love


What wondrous love is this O my soul, O my soul.
What wondrous love is this, O my soul.

What wondrous love is this, hat caused the Lord of bliss.
To bear the dreadful curse, for my soul, for my soul.
To bear the dreadful curse for my soul.

To God and to the Lamb, I will sing, I will sing.
To God and to the Lamb, I will sing.
To God and to the Lamb, who is the great I am.
While millions join the theme I will sing, I will sing.
While millions join the theme, I will sing.

And when form death I'm free, Ill sing on, Ill sing on.
And when from death I'm free Ill sing on.
And when from death I'm free. Ill sing and joyful bee.
And through eternity Ill sing on.

A Woman's Heart
 

Morning Comes and finds her on her knees,
The spirit speaks and she is listening.
She offers everything her soul can give,
To make a difference through the life she lives.

Her faith holds her family close,
She understands what matters most.
Her gentle touch is where loves starts,
That's the way of a woman's heart.

She's the keeper of the vision,
She's the beacon in the night.
A teacher and defender of the truth.
And everything she touches bears the traces of her light.
She's faithful to what God himself would do.

She's a friend to the lonely and the lost
Everyday another bridge to cross.
Her hands of mercy know the healers art.
And that's the way of a Woman's Heart

She's the keeper of the vision,
She's the beacon in the night.
A teacher and defender of the truth.
And everything she touches bears the traces of her light.
Shes faithful to what God himself would do.

Evening comes and finds her on her knees.
The Spirit speaks and she is listening.
With sweet assurance, shes done her part.
She weeps In his peace.
And that's the way of a woman's heart.

Things You Are To Me
 

If I held in my hand,
Every grain of sand
Since time first began to me
Still I could never count,
Measure the amount;
Of all the things you are to me

If I paint the sky,
Hang it up to dry
I would want the sky to be
Oh, such a grand design
An everlasting sign
Of all the things you are to me

Chorus:
You are the sun that comes on summer winds
You are the falling year that autumn brings
You are the wonder and the mystery
In everything I see the things you are to me

Sometimes I wake at night
And suddenly takes fright
You're my vaguest fantasy
But then you reach for me
And once again I see
All the things you are to me

Chorus

If I held in my hand,
Every grain of sand
Since time first began to me
Still I could never count,
Measure the amount;

Of all the things you are to me

Somedays

Some days worry
some days glad
some days more than make you mad.
Some days, some days,
more than shine:
when you see what's coming
on down the line.

Some days you say,
oh, not me never
Some days you say
bless God forever.
Some days, you say,
O God, and why?
And the day comes when you wrestle
with that lie.

Some days tussle
Some days groan
Some days don't even leave a bone.
Some days you hustle all alone.

I don't know, sister,
what I'm saying,
nor do no man, if he don't be praying.

I know that love is the only answer
and the tight-rope lover
the only dancer.

When the lover come off the rope today,
the net which holds him is how we pray,
and to our God above and for each other
the falling mortal is our brother.

Some days leave
some days grieve
some days you almost don't believe.

Some days believe you,
Some days don't,
Some days believe you and you won't.

Some days worry
Some days mad
Some days more than make you glad.

Some days, some days, more than shine,
witnesses, coming on down the line!
witnesses, coming on down the line!

For Good
 

I've heard it said,
That people come in to our lives for a reason.
Bringing something we must learn and we are led,
To those who help us most to grow,
If we let them, and we help them in return.

Well. I don't know if I believe that's true,
But I know I'm who I am today, because I knew you.

Like a comet pulled from orbit as it passes the sun,
Like a stream that meets a boulder half way through wood.
Who can say if I've been changed for the better.

Because I knew you, I have been changed for good.

It well may be, that we will never meet again, in this lifetime.
So let me say before we part
So much of me is made of what I learned from you.
You'll be with me, like handprint on my heart.
And whatever way our stories end.
I know you have re-written mine, by being my friend.

Like a ship blown from its moorings, by a wind off the sea.
Like a seed dropped by a sky bird,
In a distant wood.
Who can if I've been changed for the better.
Because I knew you, I have been changed for good.

And just to clear the air, I ask forgiveness for the things I've done you blame for.
And then again I guess there is blame to share.
And none of it seems to matter anymore...

Like a comet pulled from orbit as it passes the sun,
Like a stream that meets a boulder half way through wood.

Who can say if Ive been changed for the better.
I DO BELIEVE I HAVE BEEN CHANGED FOR THE BETTER.

Because I knew you
Because I knew you
I have been changed for good.

How Beautiful


How beautiful the hands that served
the wine and the bread
and the sons of the earth.
How beautiful the feet that walked
the long dusty roads
and the hills to the cross.
How beautiful
How beautiful

How beautiful is the body of Christ.

How beautiful the heart that bled
that took all my sin
and bore it instead.
How beautiful the tender eyes
that chose to forgive
and never despise.
How beautiful
How beautiful

How beautiful is the body of Christ.

And as He laid down His life
we offer this sacrifice
that we will live just as he died:
willing to pay the price
willing to pay the price.

How beautiful the radiant Bride
who waits for her Groom
with His light in her eyes.
How beautiful when humble hearts give
the fruit of pure lives
so that others may live.
How beautiful
How beautiful

How beautiful is the body of Christ.

How beautiful the feet that bring
the sound of good news
and the love of the King.
How beautiful the hands that serve
the wine and the bread
and the sons of the earth.
How beautiful
How beautiful

How beautiful is the body of Christ.


Prayer of St Francis


Lord make me an instrument of thy peace,
Where there is hatred let me sow love.
Where there is injury, thy pardon lie.
Where there is doubt, let there be faith.

O, Lord make me an instrument of thy peace,
Where there is despair, let me bring hope.
Where there is darkness, let there be light.
And where there is sadness, let there be joy.

O divine master grant that I may
not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
To be loved as to love

O, Lord make me an instrument of thy peace,
Where there is hatred let me sow love.
For it is in giving that we receive-
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned.
And it's in dying that we are born to eternal life.
To eternal life.

O, Lord make me an instrument of thy peace,
An instrument of thy peace
Amen

O Divine Redeemer


Ah, turn me not away, receive me though unworthy.
Ah, turn me not away, receive me though unworthy.
Hear Thou my cry, hear Thou my cry,
Behold, Lord, my distress!

Answer me from Thy throne,
Haste Thee, Lord, to mine aid!
Thy pity show in my deep anguish, Thy pity show in my deep anguish.
Let not the sword of vengeance smite me,
Though righteous Thine anger, O Lord!

Shield me in danger, O regard me!
On Thee, Lord, alone will I call!

O divine Redeemer, O divine Redeemer!
I pray thee grant me pardon, And remember not
Remember not my sins!
Forgive me!

O divine Redeemer! I pray Thee, grant me pardon
And remember not, remember not, O Lord, my sins!

Night gathers round my soul
Fearful, I cry to Thee,
Come to mine aid, O Lord!
Haste Thee, Lord, haste to help me!

Hear my cry, hear my cry
Save me, Lord in Thy mercy;
Hear my cry, hear my cry!
Come and save me, O Lord!

O divine Redeemer! O divine Redeemer!
I pray Thee, grant me pardon, and remember not
Remember not, my sins!

Save in the day of retribution
From death shield Thou me, O my God!
O divine Redeemer, have mercy!
Help me my Savior!

How Great Thou Art


O Lord my God,
When I in awesome wonder
Consider all
The works Thy Hand hath made,
I see the stars,
I hear the rolling thunder,
Thy pow'r throughout
The universe displayed;

Refrain:
Then sings my soul,
My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art!
How great Thou art!
Then sings my soul,
My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art!
How great Thou art!

When through the woods
And forest glades I wander
And hear the birds
Sing sweetly in the trees;
When I look down
From lofty mountain grandeur
And hear the brook
And feel the gentle breeze;

Refrain

When Christ shall come,
With shouts of acclamation,
And take me home,
What joy shall fill my heart!
Then I shall bow
In humble adoration
And there proclaim,
"My God, how great Thou art!"

Refrain

Taste and See


Refrain
Taste and see, taste and see
the goodness of the Lord.

O taste and see, taste and see
the goodness of the Lord, of the Lord.

I will bless the Lord at all times.
With praise always on my lips;
my soul shall glory in the Lord
for God has been so good to me.

Refrain

Glorify the Lord with me.
Together let all praise God's name.
I called the Lord who answered me;
from all my troubles God set me free.

Refrain

Worship the Lord, all you people.
You'll want for nothing if you ask.
Taste and see that God is good;
in God we need put all our trust.

Refrain

Christmas Lullaby
 

I'll never have the power to control the land
Or conquer half the world
Or claim the sun
I'll never be the kind who simply waves her hand
And has a million people do
The things I wish I'd done

But in the eyes of Heaven
My place is assured
I carry with me heaven's grand design
Gloria, glory, I will sing the name of the Lord
And He will make me shine

And I will be like Mother Mary
With a blessing in my soul
And I will give the world my eyes
So they can see
And I will be like Mother Mary
With a blessing in my soul
And the future of the world inside of me

In the eyes of Heaven
My place is assured
I carry with me heaven's grand design
Gloria, glory I will sing the name of the Lord
And He will make me shine

And I will be like Mother Mary
With a blessing in my soul
And I will give the world my eyes
So they can see
And I will be like Mother Mary
With a blessing in my soul
And the future of the world inside of me

And I will be like Mother Mary
With the power in my veins
To believe in all the things
I've yet to be
And I will be like Mother Mary
And I'll suffer any pains
For the future of the world
For the future of the world
Inside of me...

Lamb of God


Your only Son, no sin to hide
but You have sent Him from Your side
to walk upon this guilty sod
and to become the Lamb of God.

Your gift of love, they crucified.
They laughed and scorned Him as He died.
The humble King they named a fraud
and sacrificed the Lamb of God.

O Lamb of God, sweet Lamb of God
I love the holy Lamb of God
O wash me in His precious blood
my Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God.

I was so lost, I should have died.
But You have brought me to Your side
to be led by Your staff and rod
and to be called a Lamb of God.

O Lamb of God, sweet Lamb of God
I love the holy Lamb of God
O wash me in His precious blood
Till I am just a Lamb of God.

 

On My Knees
 

There are days
when I feel
The best of me
is ready to begin
There are days
when I feel
I'm letting go
and soaring on the wind
'Cause I've learned in laughter or in pain
How to survive!

I get on my knees! (x2)
There I am before the Love
That changes me
See I don't know how
But there's power
When I'm on my knees

I can be
in a crowd
Or by myself
or almost anywhere
When I feel
there's a need
To talk with God
He is Emmanuel
When I close my eyes,
no darkness there
There's only light!

I get on my knees (x2)
There I am before the Love that changes me
See I don't know how, but there's power
In the blue skies, in the midnight
When I'm on my knees
I get on my knees (x2)
There I am before the Love
That changes me
See I don't know how, but there's power
When I'm on my knees

How Can I Keep from Singing?

My life flows on in endless song
above earth's lamentations,
I hear the real, though far-off hymn
that hails a new creation.

Refrain:
No storm can shake my inmost calm,
while to that rock I'm clinging.
Since love is lord of heaven and earth
how can I keep from singing?

Through all the tumult and the strife
I hear that music ringing,
It sounds an echo in my soul.
How can I keep from singing?

Refrain

Which though the tempest loudly roars,
I hear the truth, it liveth.
And though the darkness 'round me close,
songs in the night it giveth.

Refrain

The peace of Christ…

Refrain (x2)

In Heaven’s Eyes

A fervent prayer rose up to heaven,
a fragile soul is losing ground
Sorting through this earthly babble,
heaven heard the sound

This was a life with no distinction,
no successes, only tries
Yet gazing down on this unlovely one,
there was love in heaven's eyes

In heaven's eyes,
there are no losers,
in heaven's eyes no hopeless cause
Only people like you with feelings like me
amazed by the grace we can find
In heaven's eyes

An orphaned child,
a wayward father,
a lonely traveler in the rain
When life goes on and no one bothers heaven feels the pain

Looking down,
God sees each heart ache,
knows each sorrow,
hears each cry

And looking up,
we see compassion's fire
ablaze in heaven's eyes

In heaven's eyes,
there are no losers,
in heaven’s eyes
no hopeless cause
Only people like you with feelings like me
amazed by the grace we can find

In heaven's eyes,
there are no losers,
in heaven’s eyes there is no hopeless cause
Only people like you with feelings like me
amazed by the grace we can find
In heaven's eyes!

You are Mine

I will come to you in the silence
I will lift you from all your fear
You will hear My voice
I claim you as My choice
Be still, and know I am near

I am hope for all who are hopeless
I am eyes for all who long to see
In the shadows of the night,
I will be your light
Come and rest in Me

Refrain
Do not be afraid, I am with you
I have called you each by name
Come and follow Me
I will bring you home
I love you and you are mine

I am strength for all the despairing
Healing for the ones who dwell in shame
All the blind will see, the lame will all run free
And all will call My name

Refrain

I am the Word that leads all to freedom
I am the peace the world cannot give
I will call your name, embracing all your pain
Stand up, now, walk, and live

Refrain

The Lord’s Prayer
 

Our Father
Which art in heaven
Hallowed be thy name
Thy kingdom come
Thy will be done in earth
As it is in heaven
Give us this day our daily bread
And forgive us our debts
As we forgive our debtors
And lead us not into temptation
But deliver us from evil
For thine is the kingdom
And the power
And the glory, forever,
Amen

I’ll Walk with God
 

I'll walk with God from this day on
His helping hand I'll lean upon
This is my prayer, my humble plea,
May the Lord be ever with me.

There is no death, though eyes grow dim
There is no fear when I'm near to Him
I'll lean on Him forever
And He'll forsake me never.

He will not fail me
As long as my faith is strong,
Whatever road I may walk along.

I'll walk with God, I'll take His hand.
I'll talk with God, He'll understand.
I'll pray to Him, each day to Him
And He'll hear the words that I say.
His hand will guide my throne and rod
And I'll never walk alone
While I walk with God.

You Raise me Up
 

When I am down and, oh my soul, so weary;
When troubles come and my heart burdened be;
Then, I am still and wait here in the silence,
Until you come and sit awhile with me.

Refrain
You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up: To more than I can be.

There is no life - no life without its hunger;
Each restless heart beats so imperfectly;
But when you come and I am filled with wonder,
Sometimes, I think I glimpse eternity.

Refrain (x3)
