1. Open My Lips (Psalm 95)

Refrain:
Open my lips, and my mouth will proclaim your praise.
Verse:
Come, let us sing joyfully to the LORD;
cry out to the rock of our salvation.
Let us greet him with a song of praise, 
joyfully sing out our psalms.
For the LORD is the great God, 
the great king over all gods,
Whose hand holds the depths of the earth; 
who owns the mountain tops.
The sea and dry land formed by His hand.
Verse:
Enter, let us bow down in worship; 
let us kneel before the LORD who made us.
For this is our God, whose people we are, God's well-tended flock. 
Oh, that today you would hear his voice:
Harden not your hearts.
Outro:
Enter my Rest!
Enter my Rest!

2. Psalm 130

Out of the depths I call to you, O LORD;
LORD, hear my cry! 
May your ears be attentive to my cry for you
LORD, have mercy.
O, LORD if you marks our sins, who can stand?
But with you is forgiveness, so you are revered.
I wait with longing for the LORD, 
my soul waits on his word.
LORD if you mark our sins, who can stand?   Who can stand?
But with you is forgiveness, so you are revered.
The LORD is kindness, 
The LORD is redemption,
The LORD will redeem us from all our sins.
The LORD is kindness, 
The LORD is redemption,
God will redeem us from all our sins.

3. Psalm 67:  A Song of Thanksgiving

May the peoples praise You, O God;
May all the peoples praise You!
May the peoples praise You, O God;
May all the peoples praise You!
God, be merciful to us and bless us;
Look on us with kindness,  so that the whole world may know Your will.
So that all nations may know Your salvation.
May the nations be glad and sing,  sing for joy,
Because You judge the peoples with justice,
And guide every nation on earth.
The land has produced its harvest;  God,  our God has blessed us
God has blessed us;
May all people everywhere honor,  honor Him!

4. Jonah   from Jonah 2

Verse 1
Out of my distress I called to you LORD, and you answered me; 
From the midst of the nether world I cried for help, and you heard my voice.
For you cast me into the deep, into the heart of the sea, and the flood 
All your breakers and billows passed over me.
Then I said, “from your sight I am banished.”  “I am banished from your house.”
“I am banished, I am banished from your house.”
Verse 2
The waters swirled about me, threatening my life; 
the abyss enveloped me; seaweed clung about my head.
Down I went to the roots of the mountains; 
And the bars of the nether world closed, 
But you brought me up from the pit, 
LORD, your hand extended to me.  Lord your hand extended to me.
O Lord, your hand extended to me.
Refrain:
O LORD, my God.  Deliverance is from you.
Verse 3
When my soul fainted within me, I remembered you LORD; 
My prayer reached your holy place.
Those who worship vain idols forsake their source of mercy.
But I, with resounding praise, will sacrifice to you;
I will sacrifice to you.  I will sacrifice to you.

5. Be Here With Me

I love you, Lord, but I don’t quite know what that means.
I love you, Lord, and I want to show you by any means,  
Look on me, with your knowing eyes.
Ask my heart, where it lies.
I love you, Lord,  but I don’t quite know what that means.
I seek you, Lord, in all I see may I see you.
I seek you, Lord, in all I hear may I hear you.
Speak those words, I long to hear,
Let my heart, find you near.
I seek you, Lord, in all I do may I find you.
Be here with me.  Be here with me.
When you cross my mind, be here with me.
Be here with me.  Be here with me.
When luck is kind, be here with me.
Be here with me.  Be here with me.
In a stranger’s face, be here with me.
Be here with me.  Be here with me.
In a friend’s embrace, be here with me.
I believe.  I believe.  I believe, you’re here with me.
I believe.  I believe. I believe, you’re here with me.

6. Astonished

If there was a moment away from time,
I'd spend it with you and then return.
Having indulged in that dream,
I never wanted to return to.
I'm begging for renewal.
Freezing from my cold heart.
We both know this can last forever.
Will you let it, or will I?
I will step outside myself; I will stand in your gaze.
My clingy language doesn't stick.
The words are always spoken from the heart.
Yet, without you 
The heart doesn't know what it is saying.
I'm begging for renewal.
Freezing from my cold heart.
We both know this can last forever.
Will you let it, or will I?
I will step outside myself; I will stand in your gaze.
Languid intentions,
Have left me with no true intent.
I look upon you,
You're impression left on a sheet.
You're impression is throughout me.
I'm amazed when I realize it.
I'm frightened you are really gone this time.
Will you please call to me again?

7. Without Him

If God came knocking on my door,
Would I be able to open it? 
Should I tell him to watch the step,
Or would he float over it?
But I cannot tell, these things I can’t see,
They’re beyond my mind, they’re beyond my thought.
They enter a dream.
A dream of Heaven, now that’s a lot.
But I cannot Breath.
I cannot Sing.
And I cannot Feel,
Without Him.
If God came seeking my heart,
would I be able to show him it?
If God came asking for my life,
would I be able to offer it?
But I cannot tell, these things I can’t see,
though he’s done, each one for me.

8. Take the Stars

Take the stars
And the night
And put them in a bottle
The universe will go on.
Take the clouds and the sun
And the day
Until the cap is opened
Life is peachy
We try to do the big things
And hope they make the difference
We should try...
Try to do the little things
And know that they do.
Drop a rock
Through the air
Stop it in its journey
Time still moves on
The rock will eventually reach its end
The end it’s beginning
Something from nothing
Nothing from something
We try to do the big things
And hope they make the difference
We should try...
Try to do the little things
And know that they do.

9. Way  of  the  Cross

It  was  the  cross  on  which  our  souls  were  borne.
It  was  the  cross  on  which  His  flesh  was  torn.
Red  trails  of  blood  on  which  our  salvation  lies.
The  same  trails  of  which  His  Mother  cries.
In  His  eyes  see  His  loneliness;
Pity  for  our  sinfulness.
Eyes  that  see  your  soul  in  just  a  glance.
Eyes  that  offer  you  a  second  chance.
Our  Savior  died  and  was  laid  to  rest,
Among  the  worst  and  the  best.
Conquering  sin  and  death  once  more,
He  rose  to  show  us  Heaven's  door.
And  leaving  us  with  His  sign  of  peace,
That  is  our  memories  will  never  cease.
So  we'll  follow  the  way  of  the  cross,
That  can  free  us  from  sin  and  loss.
Now  I  wonder  of  this  One  who  came.
Will  anyone  ever  be  the  same? 
Can  I  be  a  shadow  of  His  eternal  light?  
A  light  that  shines  so  bright.
Lord,  allow  my  thoughts,  words,  and  actions,
To  become  the  word  made  flesh.
For  its  my  life's  journey,
And  my  soul's  quest.
Lord,  Can  you  help  me...Can  you  help  me...
Lord,  Can  you  help  me...Can  you  help  me... 
Love...  Lord,  Can  you  help  me  love?  

10. Peter’s Prayer  (Three Times)

Lord, you know everything.  You know that I love you, So why do you try my heart?
Yet once I ask I know,  Of my frailty and of your love for me.
(Lord) you have the words of life  To whom shall we go?
Lord I saw you, on the sea And now I look to you,  And long to hear your voice.
“Take courage, keep your eyes on me”  Call my bluff, Lord, To teach me your true love.
(Lord) you have the words of life To whom shall we go?

Three times, call my name And bid me to follow you.
Three times, bear my denial And bid me to follow you.  3x
Lord, you know I fear to go Where you lead me But I beg you for grace
And once I ask I know Of my frailty and of your love for me.

11. Love Never Fails

Love is patient
Love is kind
It does not envy
It does not boast
It is not proud
It is not rude
It is not self-seeking
It is not easily angered
Love Never Fails
It keeps no record of wrongs
Love does not delight in evil 
But rejoices with the truth
It always protects
Always trusts
Always hopes
Always perseveres

12. At the Crib, At the Cross (Communion Meditation)

Who am I, Lord? To have you on my tongue 
Like Mary holding her Son  At the Crib, At the Cross
Who am I, Lord? To be offered your mercy here
To witness your love so near As the Crib, As the Cross  Who am I, Lord?
You are the way.  You are the truth.  You are the life.  You are my hope.
Who am I, Lord? To share in your truth, your life
To imitate your sacrifice  At the Crib, At the Cross
Who am I, Lord?  To call upon your name
To stand knowing you came the Crib, For the Cross  Who am I, Lord?

13. That’s All I Can Be For You

Tell me once, that’s all it takes, for you to get through to me.
If you’re silent I can only hear my heart’s hope for you and me.
And its sweet, and its kind and I believe that it’s all in love.
Maybe all I need is all I hear and that’s all I can be for you.
When you speak, I’m captivated, you bring out joy in me.
And in the night, if you find me, know now I’m listening.
And I’ll wait, in the moment, between each moment, of your words.
Maybe all I need is all I hear and that’s all I can be for you.
Not in the wind, not in the quake, not in the fire but a tiny whispering sound.
I hear your voice, ask me why I’m here and I hide my face in the ground.
“I alone am left and they seek to take my life.”
Maybe all I need is all I hear and that’s all I can be for you.
I am lost and I am found.  In your glory I find my hope.
I am starved, in hunger for your, presence that gives me life.
Not in the wind, that bends the trees, not in the quake or in the fire.
Not with those who seek my life, or in the arms of flesh’s desire.
I stand on high, I stand alone, all I need, is all I hear
In your voice, in your voice, I AM, in your voice.

14. Here and Now (I Will)

Lord, where can I love you?
Is it everywhere?
If so, I’m gonna need your grace here and now.
I fear I fail you.
But I know,
You offer me more mercy when I say:
I will, I will, I will choose your will.
I will, I will, I will choose your will.
Jesus, I can’t say no to you,
But I don’t wanna say yes.
In the midst   of my sin help me to see.
I want more of you.
I need more of you.
Move my heart to say:

I will, I will, I will choose your will.
I will, I will, I will choose your will.


I will, I will, I will beg your mercy.

I will, I will, I will belong to you.
I will, I will, I will seek your gaze.
I will, I will, I will run to you, I will hide in you.
I will, I will, grant me your grace here and now.
I will choose your will, I will trust your will, grant me your grace here and now.
I will belong to you, I will gaze toward you, grant me your grace here and now.

15. CHRIST LOVES 

Carry me Lord, 
in Your arms that help me love. 
Hold me Lord, 
in Your hands that heal for God above. 
Reach to me Lord, 
give me your peace. 
Inside me Lord, 
so I can help others’ love increase. 
Strengthen me Lord, 
to serve You, for You. 
Take me Lord, 
I will do what I can do.
Lead me Lord, 
I will follow You through the hate and pain. 
Over me Lord, 
remind me You did not die in vain. 
Vacate me Lord, 
of all the evil inside of me. 
Entrance me Lord, 
with the love my soul longs to see.
Save me Lord, 
please.

16. Sing Your Praise

Shepherds and wisdom called Him by name.
They called Him king.
And with the angels they will sing,
Sing His praise.
Fishermen they called Him by name.
They called Him Lord.
And from Him they learnt the Word.
And preached His praise.
He will make you fishers of men.
He will make you fishers of men.
Messiah, Yahweh, send Your spirit today.
Teacher, Healer, send Your spirit today.
Son of the living God, send Your spirit today.
Jesus Christ, send Your spirit today.
I, I call You by name.
I call You, friend.
And forever after the end.
I’ll sing Your praise.

17. You Will See Him

“Come before me,”
He said to the paralyzed man.
And he obeyed, happy just, just to stand.
“I want to see you, won’t you help me?” another said.
And go, go he answered for your faith has made you well.
But Lord I’m here, and I cry to you for help.
Have you answered me?  Will you come to my aid?
And for those who ask:
You will see him.

Hidden Track. Light  of  Love

Jesus,  why  have  you  come,
Into  the  silence  of  my  heart?
Jesus,  why  have  you  come,
Into  the  silence  of  my  heart?
What  to  do  at  the  feet  of  a  Savior?
Would  you  smile  or  would  you  weep?
Would  you  try  to  listen,
To  His  words  that  softly  creep?
Into  your  heart,
Where  they  will  tear  your  evil  all  apart.
Into  your  soul,
Where  they  will  let  your  love  flow.
Jesus,  why  have  you  come,
Into  the  silence  of  my  heart?
Jesus,  why  have  you  come,
Into  the  silence  of  my  heart?
What  to  do  if  His  hand  passed  you  by?
Would  you  smile  or  would  you  weep?
Would  you  try  to  reach,
To  His  hand  that  will  gently  creep?
Over  your  head,
Where  it  will  clear  all  your  skies.
Into  the  heavens,
Allow  the  light  of  love  in  your  eyes.
Whisper  Lord,  for  Your  softest  breath,
Can  be  heard.
By  all  those,  who  are  open, to you word.
Jesus,  why  have  you  come,
Into  the  silence  of  my  heart?
Jesus,  why  have  you  come,
Into  the  silence  of  my  heart?
