Track Name: May Our God Forever Reign
Chorus:
May Our God forever reign
For He is more than worthy
Join in the Hosts as they proclaim
Holy, Holy is His Name
May Our God forever reign!

Enter with awe before the great majestic Lord
Draw near the power of His grace
Drink in His glory as we come into His courts
Filling up with splendor ’til we must sing out with praise!

Chorus

Boldly we gather now around the Father’s throne
Knowing we’re righteous like His Son
We are made perfect by the blood of Christ alone
Marvel at His great mercy let all His Children sing as one!

Chorus (2x)
Track Name: I Just Cry Holy
In moments like these, my spirit is still
The sweet tenderness of your presence is real
My heart is so full, yet my words cannot say what I feel.

In moments like these, I feel such a peace
Yet praise deep within me demands a release
And all I can do is to fall before You on my knees!

Chorus:

And I just cry “Holy! Lord, God Almighty”!
My soul cannot contain the joy that You have given me!
This humble voice is raised with words beyond all praise!
When I am filled with You, I just cry, “Holy!”

In moments like these, I long to remain
Where silence is sometimes the sweetest refrain
And all I can hear is my heart when I lift up Your name!

Chorus:

Holy, Holy, Holy! Lord God Almighty!
Early in the morning, our song shall rise to Thee!
Holy, Holy, Holy! Merciful and mighty!

When I am filled with You, I just cry, “Holy!"
Track Name: A Servant's Heart
Battered and broken, he was left there to die
And those who saw simply went on their way,
'Til a man with compassion who would not pass by
Reached out in live to end his suffering that day.

And when we see helpless souls are we moved by their need?
Do they touch us with their pain, with eyes of mercy do we see?
Do we long to have a love that will allow the Lord to start
To create within us a Servant's Heart?

Battered and broken He was hung there to die
And while the crowd watched his life ebb away,
Christ looked down with compassion, “Forgive them”, He cried
And gave His life to end our hopelessness that day.

And when we see helpless souls are we moved by their need?
Do they touch us with their pain, with eyes of mercy do we see?
Do we long to have a love that will allow the Lord to start
To create within us a Servant's Heart?

And will we give from our souls all we have to impart,
Not just a part, but the whole of all our heart?

And when we see helpless souls are we moved by their need?
Do they touch us with their pain, with eyes of mercy do we see?
Do we long to have a love that will allow the Lord to start
To create within us a Servant's Heart?
Track Name: Emily Ann
Instrumental
Track Name: The Church Will Stand
A lowly carpenter with nails in His hands
Came to Earth to build a church that will stand
Against the powers of death, darkness, and sin.
And with nothing more than common Men
He built a church that would not end
Though threatened from without and within
And though some thought the cross meant the church was dead
An empty tomb would prove instead
That He would rise again to reign evermore.

Chorus:
And the church will stand triumphantly
Against the powers of Earth and Hell
Weathered and battle-scarred, still the church is alive and well.
And though kingdoms may rise, every kingdom will fall
That’s built on sinking sand,
But only the church of the living God forever will stand.

Down through time the church has stood the test
Though evil men have tried their best
To destroy this church not built on sinking sand.
And when a brother would fall and the world would scorn
This church will stand, it will brave the storm.
For it’s built upon the Rock and not sinking sand.
And though some think the church is doomed to fail,
Time will prove that truth will prevail
When the eastern sky shall part, the whole world will know.

Chorus
Track Name: What's Best For Me
Father take me further from the lies that take me farther
From the truth that makes me whole
That heals my heart and saves my soul from lies.
The lies that say that wrong is right
The black disguised as purest white.
I know for sure that you are true
You long for me to long for you.
Father give me ears to hear and eyes to see
That all my life you’ve been here taking care of me.

Chorus:
You, You know best what’s best for me
You, You know best what’s best for me
And I know you’ve already planned a wonderful life of love for me
I can plainly see that You know best what’s best for me.

May I hear your voice see your face
And die to things that take Your place
And place the things that please your heart
Within a life that’s set apart
I’m asking you to make in me a heart that’s true
I know I need much less of me and more of You.

Chorus
Track Name: Restore The Glory
Seems like everywhere we look there’s a need for Your return
The children You have chosen have forgotten what they’ve learned
And a nation stumbles blindly through the darkness of their minds
And those pursuing truth and life are sometimes hard to find.

Chorus:
Restore the glory, light the fire once more.
Renew our hearts as never before
And remind us daily that in God we trust
Restore the glory in us.

In a land conceived in freedom, born in hearts that once believed
We see so much bondage and so many received.
Yet here among Your faithful may Your glory be restored.
From deep within the well of grace we life our voice once more.

Chorus 2x
Track Name: All For The Asking
Great expectations that somebody promised are falling apart.
Wasted and wanting the pain in your eyes show the tears of your heart.
Needing a word that holds to the end
Needing a place to start again.

Chorus:
Searching for more, knock on the door
Love’s surely waiting for you
Seek anytime, seek you will find
All for the asking is true.

Spinning the wheel when the stakes run so high and the chances are slim.
Why go on guessing who there is assurance just trusting in Him.
Nothing to lose by calling His name
Nothing to lose. All to gain.

Chorus

Instrumental
Nothing to lose by calling His name
Nothing to lose. All to gain.

Chorus
Track Name: Daystar (Shine Down On Me)
Lily of the Valley, let your sweet aroma fill my life
Rose of Sharon show me how to grow in beauty in God's sight
Fairest of ten thousand make me a reflection of your light
Daystar shine down on me let your love shine through me in the night

Chorus:
Lead me, Lord, I'll follow. Anywhere you open up the door
Let your word speak to me, show me what I've never seen before
Lord, I want to be your witness, you can take what's wrong and make it right
Daystar shine down on me, let your love shine through me in the night

Lord, I've seen a world that's dying wounded by the master of deceit
Groping in the darkness, haunted by the years of past defeat
But when I see you standing near me shining with compassion in your eyes
I pray Jesus shine down on me let your love shine through me in the night

Chorus
Track Name: I Bowed On My Knees And Cried Holy
I dreamed of a city called Glory,
So bright and so fair.
When I entered the gates I cried, "Holy"
The angels all met me there:
They carried me from mansion to mansion,
And oh the sights I saw,
But I said, "I want to see Jesus,
The One who died for all."

Then I bowed on my knees and cried,
"Holy, Holy, Holy."
I clapped my hands and sang, "Glory,
Glory to the Son of God."
I bowed on my knees and cried,
"Holy, Holy, Holy."
Then I clapped my hands and sang, "Glory,
Glory to the Son of God."

As I entered the gates of that city,
My loved ones all knew me well.
They took me down the streets of Heaven;
Such scenes were too many to tell;
I saw Abraham, Jacob and Isaac
Talked with Mark, and Timothy
But I said, "I want to see Jesus,
'Cause He's the One who died for me."

Then I bowed on my knees and cried,
"Holy, Holy, Holy."
I clapped my hands and sang, "Glory,
Glory, Glory."
I clapped my hands and sang, "Glory"
I clapped my hands and sang, "Glory"
I clapped my hands and sang, "Glory"
"Glory to the Son of God"
I sang, "Glory to the Son of God."
