Track Name: We Believe
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
Track Name: Begining With You
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
Track Name: All Glory And Honor
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!
Track Name: All That Falls Away
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.
Track Name: Apple Of My Eye
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!
Track Name: Crucified With Christ
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
Track Name: The Power Of Praise
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)
Track Name: Come On In
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.
Track Name: Forgetfulness Sea
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)
Track Name: Were It Not For Grace
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
Track Name: These Are They
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
Track Name: From The Lord
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.
