To You, O My Strength What the enemy meant for evil God has turned for my good What the enemy meant for evil God has turned for my good But I will sing of Your power Yes, I will sing aloud of Your mercy in the morning For You have been my defence and refuge in the day of my trouble To You, O my strength I will sing praises for You have been my defence To You, O my strength I will sing praises to the God of my mercy Mercy Mercy What the enemy meant for evil God has turned for my good ... Arise, Shine Arise, shine for thy light is come and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee Arise, shine for thy light is come and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee For behold, darkness shall cover the earth Great darkness shall cover the peoples But the Lord shall arise upon thee And His glory shall be seen upon thee. Blow the trumpet in Zion, Zion Blow the trumpet in Zion, Zion Blow the trumpet in Zion, Zion Sound the alarm Sound the alarm Sound the alarm …

Look out your windows, babies Breathe in the air Life is everywhere Now take a deep breath And mind the gap Observe your step most carefully These days we’re living on the edge Now open your eyes, babies Look if you dare The rich man sleeping on the poor man’s back Proletariat, no time to see Too busy doing the treadmill Playing the lottery The living end Riding the tide Blind leading the blind This critical hour Haunted in a house of lies Modern man not as wise as he’d like to believe All heed Open your mind, baby What will you see? Hallucination or reality? You’d better stay real Better not betray yourself unto yourself Prepare to meet thy Maker The night is on its way Biding the time Blind leading the blind This critical hour Haunted in the house of lies Modern man none the wiser Taught himself to sacrifice everything For security Peace and security Some security O ye of little faith …

The cool of the day Creation Elation awakening To celebrate the Maker’s way From out of the dust and clay Creator Fashions me Breathes life in me Enlightens me Inviting me In the cool of the day Unadorned and unashamed Cool In the garden So welcoming He walks with me My dearest friend talks to me Who loves me In naked transparency Adam, Adam, where are you? Cast into deepest sleep Awakened He brings to me my Chavah dear My blessed Eve Explore among the trees For beauty and bliss To give one pause New fruit to eat To satisfy To let one see To make one wise In the cool of the day Unadorned and unashamed In the cool of the day Unhidden, unenslaved Cool Adam, Adam, where are you? Abba ...

Time is running out On a sad blue planet Time is winding down Toward the wind-up Sin and grace abound Man hanging in the balance 11:59 and flirting with disaster Sometimes I wonder how it might have been If we had never fallen into sin Paradise gained, then lost A quantum leap to a brave new world Complete the tower of Babel For one last call the Son is setting On the downtrodden masses For the changing of the guard Closed and opened doors The breaking of the yoke With a double-edged sword Sometimes I wonder where we might have been If He hadn’t come to set the captives free There would we be in our slavery He’s run amok, pulling strings The author of confusion With diabolic puppetry And thinly-veiled delusions False goddess mother earth Grandiose utopias Imposed with grave abandonment And desperate recklessness Sometimes I wonder how it might have been If he had not rebelled against the King A dangerous being prowls our galaxy The fool has said in his heart, “There is no God.” A politically correct ship of fools is flying into the sun In the calm before the storm, the storm before the calm But if we miss this boat we’ll be swept up in the flood Sometimes I wonder how it might have been If we had never fallen into sin Paradise gained, then lost Time is running out on a sad blue planet Time is winding down toward the wind-up Time is running out on a sad blue planet Time is running out …

Underdog 03:12
The inmates are running the asylum Same old circus, different clowns Underdog Fall out with the tribal leaders Fall in with the great unwashed Underdog In the crosshairs You are locked As armchair quarterbacks boo and scoff Underdog Trampled underfoot, branded loser Off the bandwagon see them jump Underdog Down and out with no time left on the clock You took one for the team, Champion Underdog Flaming out in a blaze of glory Snatching victory from the tyrant’s jaws Underdog So uncork the new wine of Your triumph Lift up your hearts, sing a new anthem Underdog Underdog Underdog You underdog!

The Door 03:09
An open door is what we seek You shut the door that's not meant to be One open door is all we need You shut the door that's not meant to be Lord, Lord You alone shut the door And open the door You alone hold the key To open the prison doors and set us free Lord, Lord You alone shut the door And open the door You, O Lord, are the Door You alone are my Abba, and I, Your son Lord, Lord, Lord You alone, You alone You alone shut the door Shut the door And open the door The Door The Door.

Desert Bloom 04:24
Who instigates your troubles? And who complicates Your already muddled thoughts? The enemy within So subtly disguised The father of lies But our Father knows this The heat is on, yet you’re pressing on Hallelujah He’ll see you through Cause He’s been there too God love you The weeds won’t choke the seed It will bloom for you Have you considered My servant Job? You have desired to sift him as wheat Yet he shall emerge as gold He’s pressing on Hallelujah He’s pressing on Who comforts you through your struggles? And who comes to you When the floods rush in? The enemy deceives He tells you you’re not loved That you never were But your Father knows this The heat is on, still you’re pressing on Hallelujah He’ll see you through Cause He’s been there too God love you The weeds won’t choke the seed It will bloom for you Desert bloom My servant Job God love you Keep pressing on Keep pressing on …

Give me Your heart, I will give You mine (Give me Your heart, I will give You mine) Give me Your heart, I will give You mine (Give me Your heart, I will give You mine) I need You now more than ever I need You now more than ever I need You now more than ever O my Lord …

My Lord Help me find a song To express what my heart longs to say I want to bless You And my God I have so much to say Sometimes my words get in the way And my prayers seem so lame Yet You love me just the same And my name is written In Your Book of Life Thou art mine and I am Thine My heart, my soul, my strength, my mind My Lord Your joy is my strength And I stand humbled and amazed You’re not ashamed to call me brother And my God Great is Thy faithfulness That carries me above the stress Through every test Into Your rest You have removed all my transgressions And You abundantly pardon You save my soul from hell You deliver me from death I love You so My best friend My Lord I’m eager and unsure Exactly what You have in store Yet I’m assured: You’re in control And my God So many family and friends Who don't know You just as yet Long to usher them into Your wedding feast You still use me in my weakness You created me in Your image You fill me with Your Spirit Your love is drawing me nearer Into the likeness of my Lord My Lord The hour’s getting late Soon be passing through them gates over Jordan I’ll see Your face And my God I’ll see You as you are I will look upon Your scars The only man-made things in heaven Oh, my Lord and my God My Lord and my God My Lord and my God Blessed is he who has not seen and yet believes My Lord and my God …

I’ll never be in with the in-crowd I’ll forever be on the inside looking out Yet whether or not you receive who God has sent We live but once and it’s forever And hell is not for the weekend And I’m not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ It’s mighty to save And I cannot but speak I’m a debtor to everyone I meet So as it was in the days of Noah, just before the flood I’m here to warn you to flee from the wrath to come Flee the wrath to come People get ready for major changes The wrath to come Jesus is coming, it’s the end of the age God’s holy Word became flesh to reveal the mystery To call us to repentance, and to redeem us if we’d only believe God’s holy prophets spoke as the Spirit moved their tongue The Judge has passed sentence, so flee from the wrath to come Flee the wrath to come People get ready for major changes The wrath to come Jesus is coming, it’s the end of the age I have not yet begun to fight And I will not sit back and just watch you die As much as is in me I’ll give it all I’ve got My prayer is to persuade you of the sure mercies of God Man has been playing God for too long Now the one true God gonna establish His throne O, come in from the outside His door to you is open wide Everlasting fire, or eternal life Sodom and Gomorrah New York and L.A. A world seduced by deception Soon to be called to the Judgment Day The heavens will be shaken Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done What cannot be shaken will remain So flee from the wrath to come Flee the wrath to come People get ready for major changes The wrath to come People get ready Jesus is coming People get ready for Judgment Day.

You never gave up on me Though I did You’d never walk out on me When I fled And now You have me at the altar I do, I do take this Man In the desert for a season of tempting In the lonely wilderness again But You will never leave nor forsake me I believe, I believe in this Man When are You coming back for me, my love? When are You going to take me home? I don’t belong here No, no, no There will I be free from my doubts and fears That no one seems to really care for me down here No, no, no But should You tarry, I will understand I’s a lady in waiting for my Man Pure linen white what was scarlet For the virgin bride who was a harlot Rise up, my love, and come away I am sick with love, what can I say? The dowry of the Groom begins to unfold And carry me away across the threshold Today You have me at the altar I believe, I believe in this Man. This day I pledge myself to You I do, I do, I do, I do I do take this Man …

Take it slow and wherever you go Make some time to smell that rose And do not worry Take it slow Though paradoxical Be diligent and also Do not be in a hurry You'll thank Me later Unbusy Mary of Bethany Seated at Jesus’ feet Listening to His Word Martha, dear So stressed-out, so full of fear Yet only one thing is needed And she has chosen what is better Sister’s chosen what is better Take it slow and whatever you do Do not be hasty Stay unbusy And thank Me later Thank Me later So she heard what He was going to do Whilst the others did argue Over who should be the greatest Sit closer at His table She scrimped and saved Finally purchased that vase of precious fragrance Then poured it on His feet Poured it out on Jesus’ feet Take it slow and wherever you go Make the time to smell the rose And thank Me later Thank Me later Say, what a waste The poor could’ve used that years’ wage We sure should’ve put it to greater purpose Could’ve made it pay Let her be for it was meant to be That she should save this perfume For My burial day For My burial day Take it slow and whatever you do Do not be hasty Stay unbusy And thank Me later Take it slow, the poor you'll always have with you So make the time to smell the roses And thank Me later Thank Me later You’ll thank Me later.

I love you more than words can tell And I have died for men going through hell Going to hell Greater love hath no man than this That a man lay down his life for his friends And you are My friend For now and forever, amen. I’m by your side through hellfire, and sorrow, and pain And I hear your every cry, overtures of hearts broken Such is shame But don’t be ashamed Greater am I who is in you than he that is in this world And lo, I am with you always Even to the end of the world Even to the end of the world Even to the end of the world The end of the world. I love you and if only you loved Me true We could share in the joy, in the peace of My prayer You’re My prayer Greater love hath no man than this That a man lay down his life for his friends Friends Friends And you are My friend For now and forever Now and forever Now and forever Amen.
