Was a time, all that mattered was You Then I got trapped by who we are is what we do Never intendin' for us to be like this Got to go back to the dawn of our first kiss Gotta go back, back to first love When You were all that I was thinking of Back to the innocence of Your grace Gotta go back gotta go back Remember when just being together Was simple and pure and so much better Your gentle voice, still and sweet And I would listen, sittin' at your feet Ignoring You, put out the flame I know now I was to blame Thought I was rich and didn’t need a thing But I’m just poor and blind and sick as anything Lukewarm love worse than love not even there What’s the point if it seems like I don’t care Yeah, first love is what I’m longing for Got to go back to the way we were before

Keep trying to flee from the demons Thought I’d conquered long ago A desperado shooting guns On the walls of Jericho So is this good as it gets? No sooner up than I go down In with the dust, out with the wind We all wear our own thorny crown Arise and shine, oh my soul The glory of the Lord has shone on me Once there was death, but now it’s gone Cause He finished it upon that bloody tree Way beyond imagination But I’m peering through my fractured past Anything that I think worthwhile Just dirty cloths, wood, hay, and grass A lavish table set before me Exquisite food and finest wine Only a fool would walk away From the inheritance that’s mine Wandering in an endless desert Feeling smaller than a grain of sand The Lord of the angel armies Hears my prayer and understands In the far-off sweet forever I see Your light come slipping through We will finally walk together When I will be with You

In the Image 03:46
A mist drapes the city, dawn’s first cigarette Cumulus clouds around a lone silhouette Dreams of emerald seas and soft white sand He awakes to the reminder he’s a derelict man Hey, wait a minute Mystery beyond what it first seems Made in the image All dressed up in dirty old blue jeans Try to kill the longing for love’s tender touch Just a little kindness matters oh so much Sunken eyes staring out from paradise lost Who’s this least of these my path has crossed My knees get weak at this rendezvous A chance to give back a little lovin’ to You I’m frozen by my timidity As you raise your brown paper bag in blessing to me A darkened glass shows your reflection Something familiar coming through Seized by the power of a great affection Love for the broken is love for You As I begin to feel for the destitute poor I recognize Jesus in the thief and the whore The addicts and the homeless take a different spin Each one made in the likeness of Him

Dream out loud with the volume high A call for justice ahead If all the greed were to stop And all the hungry were fed Dream the captives would go free And the last becomes first Dream of dominance ending And the meek inherit the earth Sure need some of that peace in the valley A little bit of heaven right here on earth A cherubim is preaching' down in the alley Still the greatest story that's ever been heard The poor and wounded and broken-hearted Most important are the least of these The Kingdom's near, it's already started Hope and healing, freedom and peace Dream compassion is everywhere Dream oppression will end Dream that what really matters Much bigger than dollars and cents Dream dreams and see visions Hope starts where believing' begins Our King is a bloody Lamb Who died, but is risen again Dream a dream that nothing is hidden No pride or jealousy felt Each puts the other first And gladly humbles themselves Listen to the Spirit wind Have an ear to hear Outside the culture zone The revolution is near

Washed Away 05:32
Look up – way over those mountains, Lord, Lord Lift up your eyes and look across the bay Can’t you see the morning sun gild those clouds? Can’t you hear the breeze whisper the promise of another day? Lord, Lord, Lord, you know I’ve been down that road before If I could, I would choose another way I have heard my name called on the rising wind By those waves, I’ve been washed away Don’t cry – it’s over now All your debt has been paid Oh, it’s been washed away The first time I ever saw Your face And You smiled, it took my breath away I love You now because You loved me then Oh – I’ve been washed away Don’t cry – it’s over now All your debt has been paid Oh, it’s been washed away Look up, way over those mountains, My child Lift up your eyes, look across the bay Can’t you see the coming glory gild those clouds Can’t you hear the breeze whisper, “You’ll be washed away…”

Tell you all a story, heard it long ago Heading for the Promised Land There’s something you should know Whispering naysayers only lead you to despoair But following the Captain, for sure will get you there Jesus is a rock, Jesus is a rock Jesus is a rock in a very, very, very weary land Came up to the shoreline, a dark force chasing me Caught between the devil and the deep blue sea When it seemed all hope was lost The wind blew night and day Then the waters parted and I safely got away Forty years, give or take, in the wilderness Wander here, wander there, in circles more or less Times I’d get so thirsty, no breeze would ever blow He’d lead me to a place where cool waters always flow And then to my astonishment there along with me In sweetest joy, singing out in three-part harmony So great a cloud of witnesses in and of itself Moses, Paul and Abraham, Isaiah and the Twelve Here’s the consolation, here’s the fellowship Affection and compassion for a long and crazy trip Yes, here’s the information, give it to you on the run The motherlode of truth and hope underneath the sun

Rejoice, cut loose Be jazzed, get loose Leap up, get down Be glad, make some sound Beyond my wildest dreams, it’s sinking in, Jesus is risen (Oh yeah He is, oh yeah He is, oh yeah He is risen) Takes your breath away Guess what, our sins have been forgiven (Uh-huh for, uh-huh for, uh-huh forgiven) Just like a little kid Kaboom! Woohoo! Exultation! (Rejoice, cut loose, be jazzed, exultation) Uninhibited Jubi-jubi-jubi-jubi-jubilation! (Rejoice, cut loose, be jazzed, exultation) Don’t pour water On the Spirit’s blaze Holy to the Lord The sacrifice of praise Consecrate Our delight Exploding worship Pure and bright Rejoice, cut loose Be jazzed, get loose Leap up, get down Be glad, make some sound

Justified 04:09
Ain’t too hard in a pew, O yeah, got faith in You Reverently nod my head 'til something triggers Something else instead All alone, can’t keep the wolves at bay Need something perfect, just one thing To drive the fear away Justified, justified, because of You, because You died No spot unclean, Your blood’s applied I’m justified Same old demons, same old past Same old road gets me there fast Conjure reasons, dance on lies, cleverly rationalize All alone, can’t keep the wolves at bay Need something perfect, just one thing To drive the fear away Justified, justified, because of You, because You died No spot unclean, Your blood’s applied I’m justified Cut myself in punishment with accusations of old torments Feelin’ empty, feelin’ lost, feelin’ crushed beneath this cross All alone, can’t keep the wolves at bay Need something perfect, just one thing To drive the fear away Justified, justified, because of You, because You died No spot unclean, Your blood’s applied I’m justified Adonai Adoniai Elohim El Shaddai No spot unclean No spot unclean, Your blood’s applied I’m justified

90 miles an hour down a dead end street Falling on my face upon the Mercy Seat Far from perfect, broken in a thousand spots Doing things I shouldn’t and the things I should I do not Grace is way, way Way, way, way bigger than me Grace is way, way Way, way, way bigger than me What a journey, a roller coaster ride I wanna scream, "Stop this thing!" and run away and hide Can’t count the times I have wasted in despair My darkest hour You come and meet me there Grace is way, way Way, way, way bigger than me Grace is way, way Way, way, way bigger than me Higher than the heavens deeper than the sea Your ways are better Your thoughts are beyond me You’ve got a path that leads me to Your light And I find healing and freedom and I receive my sight Grace is way, way Way, way, way bigger than me Grace is way, way Way, way, way bigger than me 90 miles an hour down a dead end street Falling on my face upon the Mercy Seat Far from perfect, broken in a thousand spots Doing things I shouldn’t and the things I should I do not Grace is way, way Way, way, way bigger than me Grace is way, way Way, way, way bigger than me

Greater Love 06:07
Greater love has nobody Than the one who gives his life For his friends - O yes - Jesus did, amen! He allowed them just to take Him Crucified Him on that cross Gave His life - O yes - Jesus did, amen! "It is finished," was His cry Gave up His Spirit then He died Rent the veil - O yes - Jesus did, amen! Dead and buried in a tomb But Hallelujah He arose He arose - O yes - Jesus did, amen! Resurrection! Hallelujah! Hallelujah! He arose! He is alive - O yes - Jesus did, amen! He gives us hope and life eternal In His love that's sure and true Our Redeemer - O yes - Jesus did, amen! At the right hand of the Father He is seated in His place Interceding - O yes - Jesus did, amen! Jesus never ever leaves us He is bringing us along Sanctifying - O yes - Jesus did, amen! We will see Him in His glory On that great reunion day He's coming back - O yes - Jesus did, amen! Greater love has nobody Than the one who gives his life For his friends - O yes - Jesus did, amen!

Holy Ground 06:00
When everything looks so familiar You can hardly stay awake When life itself seems to surround you A hollowness that you can't shake Lift up your head, My child And take a look around You are standing on holy ground Standing, we are standing We are standing On holy ground Holy ground When everything around seems foreign And you are all alone When you have left far behind you Every place you could call home There's a burning bush ahead And a voice within it sounds: "You are standing on holy ground." When you're lost in the wild place Of as lonely untamed heart Where fears like beasts assail you And they tear your world apart Take off your shoes, My child And lay your burden down You are standing on holy ground
