You Alone

If I had a nickel for every lie I spoke 
Or if I had a penny for all my wasted hopes
I'd be richer than the richest man the world has ever known
Yet I would be a pauper, stranded and alone 

If I spoke with grand words that motivated you
Or if I was an actor whose movies all would view 
I would be quite famous, a person you all knew
Yet I would be alone, Lord, if I did not have you

CHORUS
You alone bring riches more than this world ever knew 
You alone bring meaning to this lost and lonely world 
You alone can calm my soul when storms come roaring through
You alone, Jesus.   You alone.

If I won every battle and built a fortress grand
Or if, after each struggle, I took a victor’s stance
I’d feel stronger than the strong man who lifts weights every day
Yet I would still be weak against the daily trials I face

CHORUS

BRIDGE
You alone Jesus, you alone
All glory and all honor to you alone
To you alone Jesus I give my life today
You alone, Jesus.  You alone

CHORUS

Every Knee Will Bow

I walked through the gates of the city
Made of pearls that were whiter than snow
The walls were adorned in vast jewelry
And the streets were made out of pure gold

I saw brilliant light all around me
That came from the Lamb on the throne
All around they were singing His praises
And this was the song that arose

Blessing and glory and honor and power to the Lamb upon the throne
Blessing and glory and honor and power to the Lamb upon the throne
Every knee will bow
Every tongue will confess
That Jesus Christ is Lord
Blessing and glory and honor and power to the Lamb upon the throne

I fell to my knees and I worshipped
As the angels flew 'Round the throne
In ine voice they lifted their praises
To the King of Kings alone

They sang holy, holy, holy is the Lamb
Holy, holy, holy is the Lamb
Holy, holy, holy
Holy, holy, holy
Holy holy, holy is the Lamb

Blessing and glory and honor and power to the Lamb upon the throne
Blessing and glory and honor and power to the Lamb upon the throne
Every knee will bow
Every tongue will confess
That Jesus Christ is Lord
Blessing and glory and honor and power to the Lamb upon the throne





A short worship chorus written on the plane to Boston

Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah to the great I am
Who is worthy?
None beside thee
Hallelujah to the great I am

For He is worthy, worthy to be praised
He is holy. Jesus is His name
He is high above all things
The glorious King of Kings
Hallelujah, Jesus is His name

He Calls Your Name

I didn’t know that I was lost. I always thought I was alright
My life made sense to me. I was enjoying life
Then I looked all around and I saw misery and pain
I wondered to myself, how can this old world change?

I didn’t realize it had to start with me
If I didn’t see my sin I could not be set free
That’s when I picked up the book. His words reached to my soul
I saw my wretchedness in all the stories told

That’s when I knew I had no excuse
I fell on my knees and cried “Jesus save me”

Then He called my name and He raised me up
To stand with Him on solid ground
I am not the same. I have been born again
There is a new song on my lips since He called my name

Now there’s heavenly home waiting ahead for me
My life still has its pains but I have joy and peace
There is no substitute for His amazing grace
You too can find new life iIf you kneel down and pray

Then you will know His love in your soul
Pardon you’ll see when you are set free

When He calls your name, He will raise you up
To stand with Him on solid ground
You will not feel the same.  You will be born again
A new song will rise in you when He calls your name

Jesus calls you out of darkness.  Jesus calls you out of pain
Jesus calls you out of bondage.  Jesus calls you out of shame
Jesus calls you into freedom.  Jesus calls you into love
Jesus calls you into joy and peace that come from above

You Haven’t Given Up On Me

I often wonder how you found me when I was in sin
Your word says you can't look upon the filth that lied within
Yet somehow you looked through my mess and saw my troubled soul 
You reached out and you touched my heart.  By your blood I was made whole

I often wonder how you stay with such a wretch as me
Who, even though you've touched me, still to sin i often flee
Such love I can't imagine that would cover ally shame
That's why each day I lift my hands and praise your holy mane

Jesus, precious Jesus
I'm so glad you haven't given up on me
Jesus, precious Jesus
You will carry me along to victory

I often wonder why you love me even when I fall
You come and pick me up again and then you forgive all
Your mercy still amazes me and I stand in awe of grace
As I humble seek your presence and I yearn to see your face

Jesus, precious Jesus
I'm so glad you haven't given up on me
Jesus, precious Jesus
You will carry me along to victory

You hold me
You love me
You heal me
You deliver me
You free me
You save me
You carry me to victory 

His Mercy Is Always Enough

It’s a wonderful, glorious day
The sun rises high in the sky
Jesus is walking here right by my side
It’s a wonderful, glorious day

CHORUS
He is right there with me each step that I take
When I stumble, He lifts me back up
Every day I’m alive I will trust in His grace
For His mercy is always enough

It’s a grand and spectacular day
I know that my Savior abides
He shows me His plan and is always my guide
It’s a grand and spectacular day

CHORUS

It’s a truly amazing day
The birds lift their song in the air
When I rest in Jesus, I don’t have a care
It’s a truly amazing day

CHORUS

Become Alive

What am I to do with this Jesus
Who is bleeding and dying on a cross?
What am I to say about His mission?
Is it all just a waste and a loss

He was King of Kings and Lord of Lords in Heaven
Now the nails pierce His hands and His feet
How can I declare He is Messiah
When it looks like He is drowning in defeat?

He cries out “It is Finished” and His head bows
It seems all hope is lost for you and me
They take Him to the tomb and seal it tightly
His life would be lost in History

But then the third day comes
The stone rolls away
The guards faint in fright
Jesus is alive

He walks out of that grave
Alive for all to see
Death is defeated
He has gained the victory

In His weakness He was strong
When all seemed lost His mercy won
He lives again for all to see
That He had come to set us free

Now He sits upon the throne
King of Kings and Lord of Lords
The true Messiah for us all
It’s time to listen for His call

He calls to you.  He calls to you
Come out of death to life renewed
No more let sin reign in your life
Be born again.  Become alive!

The Gifts He Gave

When Mercy seems so distant
And grace seems way far off
I remember that your word says
There will always be enough

When my wand’ring ways lose sight
Of the path I should be on
Your mercy and your grace
Will bring me back unharmed

Mercy, oh sweet mercy
Grace, amazing grace
The gifts He gave upon that cross
Forever I am saved

I’ll always seek His mercy
His grace will be my aim
In all my tribulation
I will stop to give Him praise

Praise for His sweet mercy
Praise for all His grace
Amazing is His love for me
My sin is all erased
