We Believe 04:13
Chorus: We Believe there’s courage and hope And freedom in dreaming a dream We believe We believe that faith is the light So the night’s not as dark as it seems We believe - we believe. Life goes on truth won’t change And love is what matters most The more we give the more we gain There are lessons that our lives hold What can we change with what we’ve learned? (Believin’) Reaching inside a soul that burns Believing’. Chorus Don’t give up don’t give in It’s the struggle that makes up strong Fight the fight to the end We’ll be right here holding on This is the race we must run (Believing’) Look how far we’ve come Believing’. Chorus Bridge: Believe there is power in giving That love is the secret of living That we’re here to love one another And lighten the load of our brother. Chorus 2x

Late last night I had a dream That the world was a perfect place Every street was filled with peace and love But then I woke and rubbed my eyes Thinking no trace of the night was left But all day long I've been saying to myself Chorus: If you want a world that's more loving Then you've got to love somebody You want to be in world that's more caring Then reach out and help somebody You'll make the world a better place Beginning with you And if I say it loud enough Maybe somebody else will hear That love is still the greatest of all gifts And if we give ourselves in love The world will see it right away 'Cause it keeps time with every step we take Chorus 2: If you want a world that's more loving Then you've got to love somebody You want to be in a world that's more caring Then reach out and help somebody You'll make the world a better place Before you are through To live in a world with more sharing You'll just have to do more giving If you want the earth filled with joyful noise Then open your heart and start singing Make this world a better place Beginning with you Bridge: O, the world is you and the world is me And it will be what we make it Let's fill it up with so much love There won't be room enough to take it Chorus 2 Chorus 1 Beginning with you

Jesus! What a Savior! What a Lord and King and we praise you! Glorify You! Magnify You Lord, God of all things! Chorus: All glory and honor be unto You, Lord! All glory and honor be unto You, Lord, forever! Forevermore, Amen! Jesus! Our Redeemer! What a friend indeed and we love You! We adore you, bowed before you, Lord! Our Prince of Peace! Chorus Bridge: Come draw near us, Jesus our King! Please receive these praises we bring! Chorus Amen!

Like a work in a sculptor’s hand, Before you Lord I stand, May you take away each part that you don’t need. And though there’s pain with every blow, Your grace has let me know, I can trust You as you shape your will in me. Chorus: And with all that falls away, I want to please you, Lord Remove the part of me that can’t reflect the heart of You. Though I won’t always understand, I will trust your loving hand, And leave behind all that falls away. The Deeper that you go as you chisel to my soul, The more my blemished heart is clearly seen. And yet you labor on, and with every flaw that’s gone, The likeness of your Son is seen in me. Chorus Though I won’t always understand, I will trust your loving hand, An leave behind all that falls away.

As I walk along this road of life, I find so much time is wasted Worrying about the little things that make our life complicated. But in my cluttered world you shine your warmth and your light Driving away the shadows dim you save me from the night. Chorus1: You’re the apple of my eye, the joy of my heart. The love of my life, a work of art created by God’s own hand Crafted so carefully you were woven from the start In the image of the Father’s love, how beautiful you are! You’re the apple of my eye! As I think about what God has done, I see all the grace He’s given. He sacrificed his only Son so we might be forgiven. And when I drift away from Him and my feet start to roam, God gently guides my wandering heart and brings me safely home. Chorus2: We’re the apple of my eye, the joy of His heart. The love of His life, a work of art created by His own hand Crafted so carefully we were woven from the start In the image of the Father’s love, how beautiful we are! We’re the apple of my eye! Instrumental Crafted so carefully we were woven from the start In the image of the Father’s love, how beautiful we are! We’re the apple of my eye!

As I look back on what I thought was living I'm amazed at the price I choose to pay And to think I ignored what really mattered Cause I thought the sacrifice would be too great But when I finally reached the point of giving in I found the cross was calling even then And even though it took dying to survive I've never felt so much alive. Chorus: For I am crucified with Christ and yet I live Not I but Christ that lives within me His Cross will never ask for more than I can give For its not my strength but His There's no greater sacrifice For I am crucified with Christ and yet I live As I hear the Savior call for daily dying I will bow beneath the weight of Calvary Let my hands surrender to His piercing purpose That holds be to the cross but sets me free I will glory in the power of the cross The things I thought were gain I count as loss And with His suffering I identify And by His resurrection power I am alive Chorus Bridge: And I will offer all I have So that His cross is not in vain For I found to live is Christ And to die is truly gain Chorus

What can move a man to dance when he doesn't hear a band? What can move a broken heart to sing? What can make a weary sinner fall down on his knees? What can make the halls of Heaven ring? What can lift my lowest thoughts to the very throne of God? And what can lift my eyes from earthly things? Chorus: It's the power of praise, the power of praise When led by God's spirit, it's a mighty refrain. It flows with a force that carries a current of change The power of praise. Praise can give my soul a fire when my passion's been consumed Praise can give my spirit's song a voice Praise can fill my mind with peace when doubts have overcome Praise can fill my longing to rejoice Praise can turn my sorrow to a holy celebration Praise can turn my weeping into tears of joy Chorus (2x)

Come On In 05:05
I hear You knocking at my heart, O Lord Come on in, come on in I need a cleansing from the stain of sin Come on in, come on in I want to walk with You, I want to talk with You I nee to know Your will in my life I need the peace You bring, don’t hold back anything I know that You alone can satisfy O Lord, I welcome you to come on in. I hear You knocking at my heart, O Lord Come on in, come on in Only Your peace can calm the storm within Come on in, come on in I need to feel release from all of the fear in me Won’t You guide every step I take? I honestly have to say, I need You every day. Pour over me Your love and Your grace. O Lord, I welcome you to come on in. I want to walk with You, I want to talk with You I nee to know Your will in my life I need the peace You bring, don’t hold back anything I know that You alone can satisfy O Lord, I welcome you to come on in.
9.
You don’t have to look back to the things in your past There’s a door of forgiveness you can walk through at last For Jesus died on the cross and created a sea Where our sins and our failures are buried eternally. Chorus: Thank God for Forgetfulness Sea Through His grace I now stand here redeemed whole and free And I hold in my heart God’s kingdom key I will praise Him forever for Forgetfulness Sea! You don’t have to look back to those times you refused To open your heart’s door for His love to be infused. Look forward forever to what awaits you and me There’s nothing back there at all, it’s just Forgetfulness Sea! Chorus (2x)

Time measured out my days, life carried me along In my soul I yearned to follow God but knew Id never be so strong I looked hard at this world to learn how heaven could be gained Just to end where I began where human effort is all in vain Chorus: Were it not for grace I can tell you where Id be Wandering down some pointless road to nowhere With my salvation up to me I know how that would go, the battles I would face Forever running but losing this race Were it not for grace So here is all my praise expressed with all my heart Offered to the Friend who took my place and ran a course I could not start And when He saw in full just how much His would cost He still went the final mile between me and heaven so I would not be lost Chorus Forever running but losing this race, were it not for grace
11.
The oceans give up all the dead that are in them, The graves open wide to set captives free And those who are roaming the earth rise to meet them, Abraham's seed as the sands of the sea Chorus: These are they who have come out of great tribulation They have washed their robes in the blood of the Lamb, They have gone through much sorrow into great jubilation, They're redeemed by the blood of the Lamb Like a strong, mighty army their voices are ringing The great cloud of witnesses sings freedom's song As they enter the country built by their own Father, The promised homeland they've looked for so long And all the pilgrims and all the strangers will be no longer strangers All the tired and the weary wanderers, they will wander no more The table is spread for the great celebration, And the "Welcome Home” banner flies over the door! Chorus
12.
My joy flows much deeper than rivers of doubt It’s current is stronger than oceans of pain It spring forth eternal from a bottomless well It showers my soul like a sweet summer rain. My joy comes from the Lord My joy comes from the Lord Abundantly restoring me My joy comes from the Lord. My hope is a fortress so steadfast and sure A haven of refuge where mercy is found A stronghold unshaken by seasons of war Securely protected on much higher ground. My hope comes from the Lord My hope comes from the Lord Abundantly restoring me My hope comes from the Lord. My strength is renewed like an eagle in flight That soars over valleys so great and so wide When the wind of the Spirit blows under my wings I’m lifted to places where angels reside. My strength comes from the Lord My strength comes from the Lord Abundantly restoring me My strength comes from the Lord. My strength comes from the Lord.
