Verse 1
His signs and wonders traveled here
rumors fill the market’s atmosphere
Could this be the Son of God?
The Seed of David, the Holy One?
Then our eyes met and He pierced my soul…

Chorus
Maybe it’s not too late for me
Maybe someone like me can follow Him
Maybe it’s not too late for me
What if Jesus is all I need…all I need?

Verse 2
Shame and failure fill this life I live
With compassion, He freely forgives
I turn to Him, and my heart believes
By the grace of Jesus, I’ve been redeemed

Chorus

Bridge
Consecrate me in Thy service Lord
By the power of grace divine
Let my soul look up with steadfast hope
Let my will be lost in Thine

Chorus 2
And it’s not too late for me
Today I choose to live and follow Him
And it’s not too late for me
My Lord Jesus is all I need…all I need!

Verse 1
When you see those happy faces, you wonder what they’d do
If they were going through the same trail as you
When life has you down, turn to the one who cares
When you feel like giving up, Give it all to Him if you dare

Chorus
More than just words, I want to be
More than this no good sinner
More than this song
I know I can be better, I want to be more

Verse 2
He teaches us how to carry on,
when we almost lose our way
We’ve got to keep our eyes on Him,
His plans for us are bigger than today

Chorus

Bridge
I feel like I’m barely hanging on
But He’ll never let me go

Final Chorus
More than just words, I want to be
More than this no good sinner
More than this song
More than just words, I want to be
More than this no good sinner
More than this life
I know I can be, I know I can be better
I want to be more, I want to be more

Verse 1
Heart broken
Spirit torn
As I kneel, laying down
All these burdens I’ve worn
A new beginning
By saving grace
I leave the world behind
Seeking Your face

(Pre-chorus)
And I’ll try
To be Your light

Chorus 1
So God help me
take this new life You have given
And train it through what You have written
A shining example of what You’d have us to be
You’ve changed my heart and my desires
You’re my stronghold and my provider
Of everything I’ll ever need
When this world may cause me to falter
I can turn to my Godly Father

Verse 2
Heart joyful
My Spirit soars
As I hear the cry
Of a miracle born
A new heartbeat
A brand new face
In a world that doubts
Your marvelous grace

(Pre-chorus)
But I’ll try
To show him the light

Chorus 2
So God help me
To take this new life You have given
And train it through what You have written
A shining example of what You’d have us to be
I want to be there to guide him
By Your will I will provide him
With everything he’ll ever need
when this world may cause him to falter
He can turn to his Godly father

Bridge
And I know there’s so little time
We have to influence life
So I will start today
I’ll teach him wrong from right
what’s pleasing in Your eyes
With every breath I take

Chorus 2

Verse 1
It’s hard to understand
When I’m making all my plans
Why things don’t work out
the way I want them to
I reason and I doubt
just can’t figure it out
But I trust you Lord
And I know Your way is true

PreChorus 1
In Your hands I place my life
Lord help me seek and find…

Chorus
The plan You have for me
Is right where I want to be
So move me, Lord
When I’m standing in the way
I may not always see
But through faith I will believe
Your word is truth
Gotta faithfully obey
Lord, help me wait and see
The plan You have for me

Verse 2
This life is not by chance
Through every circumstance
Lord, use the trials
to build my faith in You
When troubles fill my life
I cannot question why,
Gotta stay the course for
I know You’ll see me through

PreChorus 2
I trust You with my life
Lord help me seek and find…

Chorus

Bridge
Your plan for me
Has hope and a purpose
Prosperity
Living life in Your service
I always find peace
If I rest in Your promises…

PreChorus 3
You’re Author of my life
Lord help me seek and find…

This Life

Lyrics by Rachel Galyean Baines, Music by Matthew Cork

Verse 1
When I look back on my life
In light of eternity
I see white flags on the peaks
struggles in each valley
How sweet to remember
Moments I had no doubt
I was Your hands and feet
But it hurts to count
The many times I heard Your call
But stepped back from the brink
Instead of trusting in Your arms
And I think…

Chorus
What have I made of
this life You have given?
Without You, my work will fade
But in Your power all You ask of me
will be forever reality
Lord, Help me understand
That You will use me
When I know how weak I am

Verse 2
As I walk in Your wisdom
Not what I think I know
Lord, break my heart
To see the needs You show
Send opportunities
Ways to redeem the time
Every glimpse of Your plan
Turn my mind
To the souls You would bless
who would see Your light
If always I would say
“Here am I.”

Chorus
What have I made of
this life You have given?
Without You, my work will fade
But in Your power all You ask of me
Will be forever reality
Lord, Help me understand
That You will use me
When I know how weak I am

Bridge
I don’t want to waste any more time
filled with regret
So when I realize
The choice to be made
And the answer You long to hear
“I’ll die once again
To myself & my fear”

Chorus
What have I made of
this life You have given?
Without You, my work will fade
But in Your pwr all You ask of me
Will be forever reality
Help me understand
That You will use me
That You will use me
When I know how weak I am
 

Until Now

Verse 1
I’ve been broken
On my knees
And I’ve felt Your spirit
Move in me
And I’ve said I’m Yours
A thousand times before

Verse 2
I’ve been restless
Sleepless nights
Wondering this time
Did I get it right
Seeds of doubt
Watered by the storms

Chorus 1
But until now
I have never surrendered
Until now
I’ve been holding back
But I can’t be what you need
If I won’t let go of what’s been holding me
But I never knew how
Until now

Verse 3
I have heard You
I’ve Seen Your power
And witnessed healing
In a desperate hour, still
my hardened heart
Would change from pew to door

Chorus 1
But until now
I have never surrendered
Until now
I’ve been holding back
But I can’t be what you need
If I won’t let go of what’s been holding me
But I never knew how
Until now

Bridge
And I can finally see
What You’ve been showing me
All this time
I am finally free
Of the darkness covering
Up Your light

Chorus 2
Cause until now
I have never surrendered
Until now
I’ve been holding back
But I will be what You need
Cause I’ve let go of what’s been holding me
But I never knew how
Until now
 

Forever

Verse 1
Oh don’t let your heart be troubled brother no
Trust in the Father and the Son
For one day from in the clouds of Glory yeah
He will come to take us home
(Pre-Chorus)
And we’ll be with Him
Yes we’ll be with Him

Chorus
Forever we will walk the streets of gold
Hand in hand with the angels
Forever we will stare across that glassy sea
Forever we will bow before His throne
Offering our praises
Forever – we will – worship – and adore our king
So what’s this world got for me?

Verse 2
Sometimes in this life all we can hold on to
Are the promises He made
He will never leave or forsake us in fear
To live for Him and to die is gain

(Pre-Chorus)
This is not my home
This is not my home

Chorus x2
 

Truth

Lyrics & Music by Matthew Cork

Verse 1
Truth is, I’m not strong as I seem to be
Truth is, the man in the mirror’s not who I want to see
And it feels like I’m drowning in this world that I’ve created
Of manufactured love, and blindness to what

Verse 2
Truth is, the things I do I don’t want to do
Truth is, I know what’s right but I don’t want to
And the times I’ve tried to justify decisions that I’ve hated
Are sad examples of just what I’ve become

Chorus
So Lord I want to lie
I want to lie down in your arms
And feel the peace that’s known
But I find it hard sometimes
To let go of this life I lead
And change the path I’m on
But I know it’s time that I give up this fight
And try the truth in the arms crucified
That’s where I want to lie

Verse 3
Truth is I feel I fail even when I win
Truth is, I’m tired of saying “I never will again”
And I find a life unsatisfied from yielding to temptation
The promises I trust
quickly fade to dust

Chorus x2
 

Weak Enough

Lyrics & Music by Matthew Cork

Verse 1
I find it hard to breathe
How can this be happening?
I thought I was so strong
Could take whatever could go wrong
But now I bleed
A shattered heart cut to my knees
That’s when I hear
A still small voice whisper in my ear

Chorus
Saying lift up your eyes
Take my hand rise up my child
I am here for you now
Come to love
Sometimes what I need
Is for you to see you depend on Me
And when by your strength you’ve given up
That’s when you’re weak enough

Verse 2
It’s when we realize
It’s not by our strength we get by
Even the strongest man
Can’t take a step without holding His hand
Sometimes life
Will push us down the more we try
But He is there
With outstretched arms saying “cast your cares”

Chorus

Bridge
So Lord just break me down
If that’s what you truly need
For me to understand
Your strength that lives in me

Chorus 2
I lift up my eyes
I take Your hand, I am Your child
I am ready for You now
I’ve come to love
This time I see
That I have to give You everything
And then by your strength I’ve given up
That’s when I’m weak enough

‘Til The Storm Passes By

Lyrics & Music by Mosie Lister

Verse 1
In the dark of the midnight
Have I often hid my face
While the storms howl above me
And there’s no hiding place
‘Mid the crash of the thunder
Precious Lord hear my cry
Keep me safe ’til the storm passes by

Chorus 1
‘Til the storm passes over
‘Til the thunder sounds no more
‘Til the clouds roll forever from the sky
Hold me fast let me stand
In the hollow of Thy hand
Keep me safe ’til the storm passes by

Verse 2
Many times Satan whispered
There is no use to try
For there’s no end of sorrow
There’s no hope by and by
But I know Thou art with me
And tomorrow I’ll rise
Where the storms never darken the skies

Chorus 1
‘Til the storm passes over
‘Til the thunder sounds no more
‘Til the clouds roll forever from the sky
Hold me fast let me stand
In the hollow of Thy hand
Keep me safe ’til the storm passes by
Keep me safe ’til the storm passes by
 

You Save Me

Verse 1
When waves of death surround me
Slowly so that I can’t see
Give me something now to help my unbeliefs
The floods will consume me
They make me so afraid
I’m distressed now Lord, You’re my only escape
The enemy is strong through all calamity
Oh Lord deliver me

Chorus
The Lord is my rock, my fortress, deliverer
The God of my strength in whom I’ll trust
My shield, my salvation, my stronghold and refuge
My Savior, You save me

Verse 2
You brought me into peace, told me I was Your delight
Rewarded me for all the things that I’d done right
I kept Your ways, Lord and used You as my light
You’ll be my only guide

Chorus

Bridge
Your way is perfect, Your word did prove
I sing praise and give my thanks to you

Chorus x2
