This Cross 03:45
This Cross Verse 1: Before there's a cross, a choice must be made Will I take it up or turn away? If I would follow Christ, self I must deny For to walk as my Jesus walked then daily I must die Chorus: This cross is an instrument of suffering and pain Where the flesh is crucified But this bitter cup will one day be made sweet And my Savior will be glorified Verse 2: Before me there's a cross, a choice must be made Must I drink from this cup? Is there any other way? Nevertheless, Your will be done If this cross must be carried Father, I'll be the one

Beyond the Veil Verse 1: Oh take me beyond the veil into Your most holy place A hungry heart draws me near, that I might behold Your beautiful face Oh Father, Jehovah Shammah The bounds of Your mercy no tongue can tell The closer I get the more I need You Oh Spirit take me beyond the veil Verse 2: Oh take me beyond the veil into Your most holy place Although I was unworthy Lord, by the blood of Your Son my sins are erased Oh, Father, I come to Your altar I lay there my life nothing withheld As I bow my knees may Your glory surround me Oh Spirit take me beyond the veil Bridge: For nothing on earth could ever be so sweet As the joy that floods my soul when I'm sitting at Your feet Verse 3: Oh take me beyond the veil into Your most holy place I count as lost all that was gain for the riches of Your bountiful grace Oh Jesus, Sweet Intercessor My Lord and my God Your love never fails On Calvary's cross, You signed my pardon That I might enter beyond the veil

Perfect Church Verse 1: I used to be a member of a local church I paid my tithes and attended faithfully I was well adjusted but my bubble got busted When I saw some things that started bugging me Like one Sunday the worship got kinda rowdy Then the pastor preached way on past lunch time I had the sensation of near starvation By the time I got through that steakhouse line Chorus: And now I'm holding out for the perfect church Where there's never any pressure or strife Where the services are shorter, decent and in order And the pastor never meddles in your personal life Yes, I'm holding out for the perfect church Though I know that they are few and far between But in the meanwhile, I won't be defiled By folks that aren't as spiritual as me Verse 2: One Sunday I offered them my services To preach, teach, rebuke, exhort and lead The pastor said, "Guess what, we've got just the spot" Then he stuck me in the two-year-old nursery Well I tried to explain my position That my calling was to be on the platform He smiled and disagreed Said, "a servant's heart is what you need" So I turned around and stomped right out that door Chorus: And now I'm holding out for the perfect church Where there's never any pressure or strife Where the services are shorter, decent and in order And the pastor never meddles in your personal life Yes, I'm holding out for the perfect church Though I know that they are few and far between But in the meanwhile, I won't be defiled By folks that aren't as spiritual as me By folks that aren't as spiritual as me Don't you wish you were as spiritual as me?

His Name 04:05
His Name I saw heaven opened and beheld a white horse The Rider seated upon it is righteous and waging war His eyes are a flaming fire, upon His head are many crowns Clothed in a robe dipped in blood From His mouth comes a two-edged sword His name is called, "The Word of God" King of kings and Lord of lords is written on His side With the armies of heaven, He will judge the earth And He will reign forever as Lord

Sweet Holy Spirit Verse 1 Father in heaven You’re the one my heart seeks after Like the deer pants for the water, So my soul pants after You I stand here before You Just to worship and adore You For You alone are holy And worthy of all praise Verse 2 Jesus my Brother, My Lord and my Messiah My one life’s ambition Is to know You as You are Your blood makes me righteous Let me grow up in Your likeness That all may glorify You And proclaim that You are King Verse 3 Sweet Holy Spirit Come and fill Your temple We desire Your presence With all of our hearts Move now among us Let Your holy fire consume us Till all self is forsaken And we love the world no more

Your Love Medley Your love O Lord reaches higher than the heavens Your faithfulness to the sky Your righteousness like the mighty mountains Your justice as the sea so deep and wide How priceless is Your unfailing love How vast is Your mercy And may my heart forever take refuge In the shadow of Your wings In Your presence, I make my home To sit at Your feet, to bow at Your throne I lift up my cup as Your Spirit pours O to live in Your presence forever O Lord To the only wise God be glory forever Through Jesus Christ, through Jesus Christ To the only wise God be glory forever Through Jesus Christ Amen All those who've gone before and we who remain Will join the angels and raise our song To the one who's worthy of all praise How priceless is Your unfailing love How vast is Your mercy And may my heart forever take refuge In the shadow of Your wings

Set Your Sails Verse 1: I've been sailing on this journey for so many years With a strong conviction and fervent heart my destination clear The ocean is deep but my goal is high I'm pressing on to the other side The wind in my sails will take me there Verse 2: When I set sail my Captain gave me everything I'd need I made a commitment I would follow wherever He would lead But there are times the wind is still I'm tempted to let down my sails But that's when I hear my Captain say to me Chorus 1: I want you to set your sails to the wind of the Spirit Let My presence be your guide When the stormy waves rock your boat My lovingkindness will keep you afloat Just set your sails and let the wind blow Verse 3: Through the years we have weathered so many storms If you look closely you can see these sails are ripped and worn But through all the repairs and provision I hold to the same sweet vision To hear my Captain say, "My son, well done!" Chorus 2: So I am going to set my sails to the wind of the Spirit And let His presence be my guide When the stormy waves rock my boat His lovingkindness will keep me afloat So, I am going to set my sails Yes, I am going to set my sails Set my sails and let the wind blow

I Will Rejoice Chorus: I will rejoice in the Lord, God Almighty I will rejoice in the Lord I will rejoice in the Lord, God Almighty I will rejoice in the Lord Verse 1: Every time I think of You And all You’ve done in me I just can’t help but lift my voice In praise to my King Chorus: Verse 2: Your faithfulness has no end Your words are always true I’m so glad that You’re my Dad And I belong to You! Chorus:

You are the Rock Verse 1 You are the Rock of my salvation You are the calm through the raging storm And You are the Good Shepherd I will sing Your praise forevermore Verse 2 You are the Way that leads to heaven You are the Truth that set this captive free And the Life that's everlasting I am Yours for all eternity Bridge: Only You can satisfy my soul Only You have cleansed and made me whole

Could it Be 06:41
Could it Be Verse 1: Where is the love? Where is the passion that once flowed like springs from your heart? Where is the joy? Where is the wonder that you felt back when I first set you apart? Chorus: Could it be you have found a love greater than Mine? Could it be that someone is more worthy of your time? Could it be that in eternity when temporal things are through That I will be a stranger to you? Verse 2: Day after day I've patiently waited For you My child to draw near to Me But time after time I've been disappointed Longing to show you My glory Chorus: Could it be you have found a love greater than Mine? Could it be that someone is more worthy of your time? Could it be that in eternity when temporal things are through That I will be a stranger to you? Bridge: Can you not see? Don't you understand that you were created to know Me? Can you not see? Don't you understand that My love for you is jealous love? Verse 3: Where is the peace that you have been longing for As you walk day to day in your own strength? Where is the well that you used to draw from? It's been here all along waiting for you to come and drink? Chorus: Could it be you have found a love greater than Mine? Could it be that someone is more worthy of your time? Could it be that in eternity when temporal things are through That I will be a stranger to you?

God of Hope 05:17
God of Hope Verse 1: Lisa is a pretty seventeen-year-old So full of ambition and dreams But her carefree life was suddenly altered With a baby due in the spring All of her shattered dreams And the hurt on her parent's face Cut right to the bone she felt so alone She's looking for some kind of escape Chorus: And Jesus sees her and wants her to know No matter what's happened He loves her so To the one who is dangling at the end of their rope He's the God of hope Verse 2; On Tuesday she had an appointment at one At the clinic down by her school So many voices, well-meaning advice Convinced that she'd be a fool To bring into this world Another unwanted mistake But the God who knows her is waiting to show her The difference one life can make Chorus: And Jesus sees her and wants her to know No matter what's happened He loves her so To the one who is dangling at the end of their rope He's the God of hope Bridge: There is no mistake that His love cannot redeem There is no point so far that His mercy cannot reach Verse 3: The decision was made and there's no turning back She lives with her choice every day But when those tiny fingers cling tightly to hers She wouldn't have it any other way Her heart filled with joy The darkness turned to light She is so grateful to the One so faithful The Author and Giver of life Chorus: And Jesus sees us all and wants us to know No matter what's happened He loves us so To the one who is dangling at the end of their rope He's the God of hope He's the God of hope He's the God of hope
