Track Name: Lord of Hope
Lord of Hope

Help for the poor man
Maker of all things good
the one who brings justice
And our God

The voice I hear calling.
You sing creation's song.
Hallelujah
to our God.

Chorus:
We need you, Lord of Hope.
For we know, without you
we can do nothing at all.

Rescue us from our harm.
Save us and take us and hold us
in your loving arms.


Shelter from sorrow,
when we can't take anymore.
And you are there,
oh God.

The reason I breathe in.
The reason I'm here at all.
And I love you,
my God.
Track Name: Sounds
Sounds

You are Love and Light like the sun can't radiate.
I am overcome. Give me the sounds to make.
You are Glorious, more Glorious today.

PRE
I am overcome. Give me the words to sing
or to speak or to shout or to scream
so that you know what I mean.

You are high above all measure and debate.
I am overcome. Give me the sounds to make.
Hear all Heaven's Host sing "You are Heaven's King!"

PRE
I am overcome. Give me the words to sing
or to speak or to shout or to scream
so that you know what I mean.

Chorus:
When the sun shines on my face
I'll sing Your song, sing Your song.
and if the darkness fills this place
I'll sing Your song, sing Your song.
and if I know nothing of need
I'll sing Your song, sing Your song.
and if you take away everything
I'll sing Your song, sing Your song.
Track Name: Over Everything
Over Everything

Intake air then let out words that reflect a gratitude unbound.

Light up, Light up when you recall how we were, by this Grace, found.

Sing out songs that transcend all we could ever lay at the throne.

At the throne (x2)

where the Kings sits high over everything (x2)

Hallelujah (x4)

Reach out, Reach out your hands and souls to the One and Only Hope at all.

Sing out songs that transcend all we could ever lay at the throne.

At the throne (x2)

where the Kings sits high over everything (x2)

Hallelujah (x4)

To the King who rules high over everything (x2)

Hallelujah (x4)
Track Name: Under the Fountain
Under the Fountain

Maker of Ages, hear from the weakest of these would you Jesus?
I'm awaiting the outcome of all my days when I'll be under the fountain of you.

Up from the darkness. Overcome. Under the fountain of you.

Chorus:
I will join with the angels and sing "Holy, Holy" as we bow down.
Track Name: Sing Tonight
Sing Tonight

Father when you spoke creation
and you changed dark to light
did you hear the angels singing
and did you hear us sing tonight?

When you found your children wandering
and you set their paths right
did you hear their jubilation
and did you hear us sing tonight?


Chorus:
Did you hear us sing tonight?
Do these words transcend time?
Did you hear us sing tonight?
Hearts and minds?


When on the Mount of Crucifixion
where you fell without a fight
did you hear the voices mocking
and did you hear us sing tonight?
Track Name: Glory
Glory

Lift up your voice and sing praise to the King
who will bring us to peace in the end.
Glory to Jesus and God the Father
and glory to the Holy Wind

Glory

All of creation will burst into singing
on the Day of the Lamb
Singing Jesus is worthy of honor and glory
and worthy of all that I am

Glory

The skies will be open to the song of the chosen
with a thundering sound
and Jesus will take us where streets are golden
and where the citizens shout...

Glory
Track Name: I Need You
I Need You


I don't why you call us home
I don't get why we get your love, your love
I don't feel like I'm good enough
And if I'm honest, I don't know much


But I know that I need you
I know that I need you

Chorus 1


I will follow you
even if everyone here walked away
I will call to you
even if everyone stands silently
I will sing to you
I will sing to you
even if no one else will sing
I'll sing
even if no one else will sing
I'll sing

I don't know where I'd be without you
I don't know who I'd be alone, alone
I don't know my way around, out here
I don't know many things for sure

But I know that I need you
I know that I need you

Chorus 2
I will run to you
God, I'll fly to you, if you let me
I will cry to you
You're the only one that can save me
I will sing to you
I will sing to you
even if no one else will sing
I'll sing
even if no one else will sing
I'll sing


I'll sing of your grace for fools
your faithfulness to all us worn outsiders
and that you're merciful
even in the face of all our failures
Track Name: Running
Running

Hear my cry and trade your real for my pretend
Take what they broke, take what I broke and mend

Heal me, my Lord
Hold me, Lord

I see your wonder and I see the star light
I can see big signs and I see the small signs
I see your face and I see your arms wide
I can see you running, running
running to me

Bridge:
I need your rest from Hell I've seen, the place I've been, the worst of me.
Track Name: Why Grace
Why Grace

Why grace from Grace’s Throne
to one that would deny you if alone?

Why mercy, Merciful One,
When justice demands blood from everyone?

Fall away, blindness of eyes.
Fall away, darkness of life.
Fall away, fall away.
For I am received into the light.

Why love and life breathed in,
Into this body that was left for dead?

Why skies, why seas, why light, why me

Fall away, blindness of eyes.
Fall away, darkness of life.
Fall away, fall away.
For I am received into the light.
Track Name: Never Ending Days
Never Ending Days

When the sky's alive and open wide
How long, how long?

When every eye dare not blink
How long, how long?

When we sing like we believe what we sing
How long, how long, how long?

Chorus:
Until death is meaningless
and pain, a distant memory
we cannot recall
When the weight is lifted
and we will fill the skies
with songs to our God
for never ending days
for never ending days

When Zion's light descends from on high
How long, how long?
When the trumpets bring the welcoming
of the coming King. How long? How long?

Chorus

Father, take my fear then
and all these things
in this life
that bury me.

Father take my soul then
and lift it high
to meet with you
in the sky.
Track Name: Life as I Live
Life As I Live

You're a light
to the discontented
and you're right for me

You're a home
for the wandering and lonely
and you, you know me

You're a fire
for the cold inside
and you burn, you burn in me

Chorus:
Your grace is like the sun from where I sit
My tears like rain from the weight of it
Your mercy is stronger the further I get
You save my life as I live it

You're a hope
for the forlorn few
and I need you

You rise
to the heights of Heaven
and then condescend

You're oxygen
to the suffocating
and I breathe in

Chorus

Refrain:
Your grace is like the sun
