Unafraid 04:08
UNAFRAID Verse one: I say that I believe the promises of God Most of them I could recite to you But living out my life I don’t act as if they’re true My light stays hidden safely where not too many see Worried about lots of stuff that seems unclear Can’t be the man I should be And it’s all because of fear Chorus: Unafraid. I want to be unafraid. Fear is a lie of the enemy May Your perfect love drive it out of me Unafraid. I want to be unafraid To bring love and hope to those in need Secure that You’ll take care of me Unafraid. Verse two: Fear not the angels said time and time again It’s time I started taking their advice Put my full weight on Your Word Stop being scared of lies There’s people all around me that need to know Your love Everybody goes through times of rain Gonna get my own hands dirty And start to make a change Chorus: Unafraid. I want to be unafraid. Fear is a lie of the enemy May Your perfect love drive it out of me Unafraid. I want to be unafraid To bring love and hope to those in need Secure that You’ll take care of me Unafraid. Bridge: Time to live boldly for Your glory Walk through the fire if that’s Your plan Oughta be strong and courageous Cause my life is in Your hands Bridge Two: If to live is Christ and to die is gain I have nothing to fear by Your holy name.

Cover Me 04:09
COVER ME Verse one I don’t know where to start, The choices made by me have broke Your heart, now I’m torn apart Once again I’ve dropped the ball, But no matter how many times I fall, still You call Need to step out of the crowd, Need to lay these burdens down, so here I bow Chorus Cover me with your love Cover me with your grace Cover me with your love Cover me with your grace Verse two I’ve come to myself finally, And even though I’m so unworthy, you forgive me Found the pearl of great price, Want to dedicate my whole life to You Christ Can’t do this on my own, The strength I need must come from You alone, You alone Chorus Cover me with your love Cover me with your grace Cover me with your love Cover me with your grace Bridge I need Your mercy, Lord, I need Your grace You paid the debt, You took my place Cover me with your love Cover me with your grace Wash me white as snow

I Know 03:41
I Know I know your world is crashing down again I know you’ve hit that great big wall again The next big thing turned into one more waste of time You thirst for something to bring some meaning Feel like a failure and don’t know where to turn Cause how can you start over when you feel so far behind?/ I know I’ve been right there for you again I know I’ve come each time you’ve called again But now it seems that I’ve been holding out on you You see the secret that I’ve been keeping Is what you needed but I was too afraid So the help that I was giving wasn’t that much help at all CHORUS: But I know, I know, I know the answer I know, I know, I know the One Who will wash the slate clean, start a new scene, forget your tragic past I know, I know, I know the answer I know, I know, I know the One Who can give it all to you, life that’s brand new, joy that’s meant to last He’s what you’re searching for and He’s waiting at the door I know I know He’s calling out to you again I know He’s willing to forgive again But you think it doesn’t matter, that these gods are all the same I’m gonna tell you about a Savior//Who is the reason that I’m satisfied He is the purpose and the meaning, and Jesus is His name CHORUS: But I know, I know, I know the answer I know, I know, I know the One Who will wash the slate clean, start a new scene, forget your tragic past I know, I know, I know the answer I know, I know, I know the One Who can give it all to you, life that’s brand new, joy that’s meant to last He’s what you’re searching for and He’s waiting at the door I know Don’t let fear or questions keep you from His grace Let me take you to the cross so you can see the Savior’s face CHORUS: But I know, I know, I know the answer I know, I know, I know the One Who will wash the slate clean, start a new scene, forget your tragic past I know, I know, I know the answer I know, I know, I know the One Who can give it all to you, life that’s brand new, joy that’s meant to last He’s what you’re searching for and He’s waiting at the door I know

I've Got It Under Control Verse one A boy with auburn hair cries because he's scared Of the nightmare that just woke him up tonight His father holds him close Runs away the ghosts And tells him everything will be alright Chorus I've got it under control, have no fear Let me dry those precious tears You're too small to know what I can see from here I've got you here in my arms, so close your eyes I'm gonna stay right by your side It's the struggles and hurts of life that help you grow And I've got it under control Verse two A dad close to despair, praying cause he's scared Of the nightmare that he's living through tonight His Father up on high Hears his heartfelt cry And knows that everything will be alright Chorus I've got it under control, have no fear Let me dry those precious tears You're too small to know what I can see from here I've got you here in My arms, it's no surprise I'm gonna stay right by your side It's the struggles and hurts of life that help you grow And I've got it under control Bridge Why do we find it so hard to trust in God like a little child When He's the perfect Father and He loves us all the while? He doesn't want us to worry no matter what might come along Cause we've got a Father in heaven who's in charge of it all. Chorus He's got it under control, have no fear Let Him dry those precious tears We're too small to know what He can see from there He's got us all in His arms, it's no surprise He's gonna stay right by our sides It's the struggles and hurts of life that help us grow And He's got it under control

Soldiers of the Cross Verse 1 Climbing, Jacob’s, Jacob’s ladder home Glory will be ours to find And freedom, do you want your freedom? Then higher, higher, heavenward home And freedom, do you want your freedom? Soldiers of the cross Soldiers of the cross Bridge My life has shown me things Not all angel scenes And I cling to you Times I never saw coming Or never saw going Hurtful things And I’m as much one thing as another Demon as saint And you see through me But hearts sail on eagles’ wings Forgiveness brings And we’re lost in you Verse 2 Rise, shine, glory to be given to God Keep on climbing, Jacob’s ladder home And glory will be ours to find So higher, higher, heavenward home And freedom – do you want your freedom, soldier? Soldiers of the cross Soldiers of the cross Chorus Do you, do you want your freedom? And do you, do you want to serve the Lord? Then hear me, gather round, you soldiers Soldiers of the cross Tag I cling to you You see through me We’re lost in you

Copies and Shadows Verse one I look around this world at the things Your hands have made And I’m amazed at just the small part I can see The way things work together, the way the seasons change There are so many parts that are still a mystery But creation isn’t perfect since sin has entered in Groaning in labor pains till You set it right Recreate your pride and joy and make all things brand new With a land of no death, no sorrow, and no night Now the mirror’s dim, but soon we’ll see You face to face But right now it’s just the copies and shadows of that place CHORUS: Lord, I’m longing for that day When I will finally hear you say Well done, my child, you’ve finished a long race Now come into my presence And you can find your rest There are no more copies and shadows in this place Verse two You gave detailed instructions on how your temple should be built And I imagine that it was glorious to behold But the reason for those details was to give us a small glimpse Of how it’s gonna look when we walk those streets of gold Now the mirror’s dim, but soon we’ll see You face to face But right now it’s just the copies and shadows of that place CHORUS: Lord, I’m longing for that day When I will finally hear you say Well done, my child, you’ve finished a long race Now come into my presence And you can find your rest There are no more copies and shadows in this place Verse three We sing our praise together and raise our hands to You Making a joyful noise just as best we can But when people from every nation gather round Your throne There’s never going to be a better sounding band Now the mirror’s dim, but soon we’ll see You face to face But right now it’s just the copies and shadows of that place CHORUS: Lord, I’m longing for that day When I will finally hear you say Well done, my child, you’ve finished a long race Now come into my presence And you can find your rest There are no more copies and shadows in this place

Tired of Trying VERSE ONE God, I’ve really tried this week To be the best that I can be But I’m worried I still didn’t do enough And I don’t feel the joy I thought I would For doing things you’ve said are good Cause I worked so hard to try and earn Your love CHORUS Tired of trying, tired of falling flat on my face Tired of trying to prove my love or repay Your grace Cause this fear and this guilt are sad motivation When what You want is for me to love You more But even that I can’t do without You breaking through Tired of trying, Lord, change my heart. VERSE TWO Running hard as I can go on The hamster wheel of obligation Can’t anybody see this is killing me But I don't know what right I have to pout Lord, change me from the inside out When the focus is on You then I’ll be free BRIDGE God, I can’t, but You can, how I long for Your hand To draw me back to sit at Your precious feet Instead of looking at all that I’m looking to do I need to turn my eyes back to You SECOND BRIDGE Lord, I want to love you more Help me love you more Restore the joy of my salvation Help me to love you more

True Vine 02:49
True Vine Child of sorrow, child of woe Holding out for better time Just don’t ask for contribution Yours is yours, mine is mine CHORUS: Catered to and amused Show me your sign Wisp of a dream Where is the True Vine? Where ocean depths flow Rainbows trace the rain You’re the Hope of every nation Solace for the pain CHORUS: Catered to and amused In the starry summer sky Wisp of a dream Where is the True Vine I feel Your promise in the morning I seek You, Lord, set me free Precious name, o how sweet Sweeter still Your face to see CHORUS: Catered to and amused In the starry summer sky Wisp of a dream You are the True Vine

He Has Overcome Have you had another one of those days Feeling like you don’t measure up or belong And life's become a big unsolvable maze Where even you and yourself just can’t get along Just remember when your path’s strewn with failures And you don’t feel smart or handsome enough In this world there’s gonna be troubles But He has overcome Jesus has overcome the world and He sees the struggles that you’re facing He has the power to make a mountain range but He hears every word you’re praying So no matter what temporary struggles make this world seem tough Never forget that He has overcome Ever since you heard the news from the doctor You’ve been fighting each day just to get through the pain And you’re not sure you can make it much farther Cause you don’t even have the strength left to complain But even though your body’s in shambles There’s a promise you can draw power from In this world there’s gonna be troubles But He has overcome Jesus has overcome the world and He knows each of our secret fears He has a mansion waiting just for us in a land where there’s no more tears So no matter what temporary struggles make this world seem tough Never forget that He has overcome When the evil in this world tries to rob you of your joy and peace Be brave God is on the throne He's already won, He's already won When your burdens get too heavy to bear And the big and little problems are getting you down When you can’t find anyone else who cares And all the plans that you made are running aground Even if everything around you crumbles Just close your eyes and thank the Lord above In this world there’s gonna be troubles But He has overcome

Other Plans 03:24
Other Plans Verse one: I guess part of me didn’t think this day would get here Told myself that things could stay like this forever But I feel like I just read the final words of some great novel It’s time to lay it down And grab another from the table Chorus: Even though it’s tough to leave, God’s got other plans for me I know it’s hard for us to see But it’s time to go Please know when I am gone That I’ll keep you in my heart I wish we didn’t have to part But God’s got other plans for me Verse two: The future may bring dark and stormy weather But I’m so thankful for the time we’ve shared together While I travel down this long Francisco Road I’ll be okay ‘Cause I’ll take along those memories And they’ll be lighting up my way Repeat Chorus Bridge I can’t wait to see Where God will guide the way The loving roots that I have left here Might bring me back someday But if our lives on Earth we find By God’s design don’t coincide I know we’ll be together on the other side Repeat Chorus
