Lyrics

Your Love Broke Through

Like a foolish dreamer, trying to build a highway to the sky
All my hopes would come tumbling down, and I never knew just why
Until today, when you pulled away the clouds that hung like curtains on my eyes
Well I’ve been blind all these wasted years and I thought I was so wise
But then you took me by surprise
Like waking up from the longest dream, how real it seemed
Until your love broke through
I’ve been lost in a fantasy, that blinded me
Until your love broke through
All my life I’ve been searching for that crazy missing part
And with one touch, you just rolled away the stone that held my heart
And now I see that the answer was as easy, as just asking you in
And I am so sure I could never doubt your gentle touch again
It’s like the power of the wind
Like waking up from the longest dream, how real it seemed
Until your love broke through
I’ve been lost in a fantasy, that blinded me
Until your love, until your love, broke through

Your King Is Coming

The world was warring for peace
And hearts were restless and scared
The king was coming

Your people waited for light
For all the wrong to be right
Their king was coming to earth

Lighting the darkness
Emmanuel
Come to set us free
Forever victorious
Unstoppable
Breathing life in you and me

Dear children waiting again
He’ll right the wrongs in the end
Our king is coming

Keep on preparing the way
Lay down your fear and your pain
Your healer’s coming again

Lighting the darkness
Emmanuel
Come to set us free
Forever victorious
Unstoppable
Breathing life in you and me

Emmanuel

Lighting the darkness
Emmanuel
Come to set us free
Forever victorious
Unstoppable
Breathing life in you and me

Put on the garments of praise
Wipe the tears from your face
Your king is coming

Emmanuel

Joseph’s Song

Long ago I heard my name
In my heart I felt your grace
Begin to work a change in me

You healed the ache inside my soul
Your spirit made me feel alive
And free

But I have wandered from the peace
That once held fast to me
Lost sight of how you love me
And I’ve forgotten how to dream
Though I have been redeemed
I’m desperate for your mercy

The years have tested all I’ve known
Some seasons shook me to the core
But you have never left my side
My darkness never threatened you
The walls that shame has built
Will all fall down

When I surrender to the peace
It brings you near to me
You’ve proven you are faithful
So I’ll hold tight to all the dreams
You breathed inside of me
I know that you are able

To breathe new life
Into the deepest part
Of my new heart
You’ll restore my strength and song
So the world can sing along

God I surrender to the peace
It brings you near to me
I know that you are faithful
So I’ll hold tight to all the dreams
You breathed inside of me
I know that you are able

The years have tested all I’ve known
Some seasons shook me to the core
But you have never left my side

Dream Restored

Lately everything’s been upside down
I’ve been overwhelmed
Wish that I could say that I’m alright
But I can overcome when I

Run into the arms of Jesus
Surrender to his love
Though my hopes lay shattered
And the dream is gone
Though my heart is full of questions
I will choose to believe
In the words you’ve spoken
You’re singing over me

Every time I try to start again
I fall short of the call
What my soul longs for
So I will lean on you instead of me
You have everything I need
You are everything I need

Run into the arms of Jesus
Surrender to his love
Though my hopes lay shattered
And the dream is gone
Though my heart is full of questions
I will choose to believe
In the words that you’ve spoken
You’re singing over me

You’re my hallelujah
And your word is my amen
Nothings how it should be
But until you come again

I’ll run to the arms of Jesus
Surrender to his love
He’s my hope unshaken
He’s my dream restored
When my heart is full of questions
I will choose to believe
In the words you’ve spoken
You’re still singing over me

Higher Ways

If I could only fly
I’d go up and look down from the sky
So I could see the bigger picture
And Lord if I could sit with You
At Your feet for an hour or two
I’m sure I’d ask too many questions

‘Cause there’s so much going on down here
That I must confess I just don’t understand
I don’t understand

But I have prayed
And at your feet my whole life has been laid
So I won’t worry I won’t be afraid
‘Cause my soul is resting on Your higher ways

So let the road ahead become unclear
Oh, I am Yours so what have I to fear
If my soul is resting on Your higher ways

Your higher ways teach me to trust You
Your higher ways are not like mine
Your higher ways are the ways of the Father
Hiding His children in His love

So let it rain
And if my eyes grow dim with tears of pain
This hope I have will not be washed away
‘Cause my soul is resting on Your higher ways

Your higher ways teach me to trust You
Your higher ways are not like mine
Your higher ways are the ways of the Father
Hiding His children in His love

Someday I will fly
Maybe then You will take me aside
And show me the bigger picture
But until I’m with You
I’ll be here with a heart that is true
And a soul that’s resting on
Your higher ways

You Are My Hiding Place/When My Heart Is Afraid

When my heart afraid
And the voices of darkness
Surround me every side
And take my breath away
I lift up my song

You are my hiding place
You always fill my heart
With songs of deliverance
Whenever I am afraid
I will trust in you
I will trust in you
Let the weak say I am strong
In the strength of the Lord

When fear tries to come
And recapture my soul
And my heart is too weary to cope
I run to the Lord
My shield and my hope

You are my hiding place
You always fill my heart
With songs of deliverance
Whenever I am afraid
I will trust in you
I will trust in you
Let the weak say I am strong
In the strength of the Lord

Whenever I am afraid
I will trust in you
I will trust in you
Let the weak say I am strong
In the strength of the Lord

When my heart is afraid
Of the voices of darkness
When the battle is too much for me
I lay down my sword
And I reach for you Lord

Seasons

Lay me at your feet
Whisper in my ear
My heart is heavy
I need to feel you here

Father I’m lonely
And afraid of what’s ahead
This years just been awful
But I’m clinging the things you’ve said

Though seasons come and go
You’ll never leave
When winter lingers on
Love will carry me
Someday very soon I’m gonna see
All the things you’re working
Inside and all around me

So hold me steady
For this crazy ride
Here’s hoping next year
Won’t make me want to run and hide

If nothing changes
I have all I need
So bring it on, Jesus
You can have your way in me

Though seasons come and go
You’ll never leave
When winter lingers on
Love will carry me
Someday very soon I’m gonna see
All the things you’ve been working on
Inside and all around me

So keep on singin
You have my ear
I’ll be right here listening
For Your voice to calm my deepest fears

Though Seasons come and go
You’ll never leave
When winter lingers on
love will carry me
Someday very soon I’m gonna see
The beauty you are working
Inside and all around me

Give Me Jesus

In the morning, when I rise
In the morning, when I rise
In the morning, when I rise
Give me Jesus

Give me Jesus
Give me Jesus
You can have all this world
Give me Jesus

And when I am alone
Oh, and when I am alone
And when I am alone
Give me Jesus

Give me Jesus
Give me Jesus
You can have all this world
Give me Jesus

And when I come to die
Oh, and when I come to die
And when I come to die
Give me Jesus

Give me Jesus
Give me Jesus
You can have all this world
You can have all this world
You can have all this world
Give me Jesus

Everything

Here’s a song for all the times
You never left my side
Every tear and every struggle
You have always been my light

When the darkness tried to hide you
When my spirit felt so weak
I lifted up my eyes to find you
Still reaching out for me

Everything I’ve ever wanted
I’ve found here on my knees
There’s no thing the world can offer
You are everything

You’re the sunlight after darkness
You’re the rainbow after the rain
You’re the air I breathe
The song I sing,
Jesus, you are everything

This journey has been hard
I have stumbled many times
You have never left my side you
Have kept me in your sight

You’re the sunlight after darkness
You’re the rainbow after the rain
You’re the air I breathe
The song I sing
Lord, you are everything

So with everything I am
I will choose to honor you
Be the melody I sing Jesus
Keep me close to you

Be the sunlight after darkness
Be the rainbow after the rain
Be the air I breathe
The song I sing
Jesus, you be everything
Jesus, you are everything

Doubts

Lord, you’ve been so faithful
I have no doubts of that
So why am I so scared of what’s to come?

I didn’t know the journey
Would lead me to this place
Where fear and doubt
Could overwhelm my soul

Still my heart it is crying out for you
Still my lips are whispering your truth

Let your kingdom come to reign
In my life, Lord have your way
Fill my soul with perfect peace
Breathe new life in me
As I wait

When the pain of former sorrows
Sweeps over me like waves
When the darkness tries
To hide your face from mine

I will choose to sit and listen
Remembering your voice
Will heal the ache
That hides my heart from yours

Hear my heart crying out for you
Hear my lips still whispering your truth

Let your kingdom come to reign
In my life, Lord have your way
Fill my soul with perfect peace
Father, breathe new life in me
Let your mercy triumph here
Over doubt and over fear
Abba father, I’m still holding on to you
Abba Father, I’m still holding on to you

Let your kingdom come to reign
In my life, Lord have your way
Fill my soul with perfect peace
Father, breathe new life in me
Let your mercy triumph here
Over doubt and over fear
Abba father, I’m still holding on to you
Abba father, I’m still holding on to you

Lord you are so faithful
Though I have had my doubts

Whisper in the Dark

Father take me as your own
Father break me
Remove this heart of stone
Father remake me, purify me
Clean out all that is inside me
So I’ll know your light

And I know that you’ve saved
Lord, you’ve saved me
And I ask you now to raise me
Father, raise me
So I may walk in light

Father you’ve let me know your presence
Father you’ve shown me
You’re all I’ll ever need
Father you’ve given me your spirit
To lead me and to guide me
This I know: your light

And I know that you’ve saved
Lord, you’ve saved me
And I ask you now to raise me
Father, raise me

Won’t you whisper in the dark
Shine your light into my heart
That I may live to sing your praise
And seek your face
