Track Name: You Will Come
Verse 1
Lord I’ve been asking, where to now from here
Lord I’ve been hoping, that the days ahead are filled with joy and laughter
Lord I’ve been praying, but the answers are far from clear

Chorus
You will come, You will save
You’ll send Your peace and make my days
Like a tree nourished by the power of the sun
Lord, You will come

Verse 2
Lord I am waiting, I want to hear Your call
Lord I am moving, like a ship I am hoping You will fill my sails, make them full
Lord I am wondering, if I hear anything at all

Chorus
You will come, You will save
You’ll send Your peace and make my days
Like a tree nourished by the power of the sun
Lord, You will come

Bridge
I’m on my knees, on my knees, hoping down on my knees
I’m on my knees, on my knees, waiting down on my knees

Chorus
You will come, You will save
You’ll send Your peace and make my days
Like a tree nourished by the power of the sun
Lord, You will come

Track Name: Anna's Song
Verse 1
Tainted is the world we’re in
All the beauty somewhat washed away by the devious sin

Interlude
Sad to see the world this way

Verse 2
Many here who are quiet and lost
Many loved both friends and kin
They don’t know who paid the cost
To cleanse them all from within

Chorus
Sad to see the world this way
When we know of His glory shown
In the coming glorious day
When we see our king on the throne
Sad to see the world this way

Verse 2
Many here who are quiet and lost
Many loved both friends and kin
They don’t know who paid the cost
To cleanse them all from within

Chorus
Sad to see the world this way
When we know of his glory shown
In the coming glorious day
When we see our king on the throne
Sad to see the world this way

Tag
There is one who knows
There is one who cares
There is one who chose
There is one who dares
To take your place

Track Name: Not Small At All
Verse 1
Standing at the edge of this canyon
Feeling like I'm two feet tall
Have to admit that I'm wonderin'
If my life is worth anything at all

Verse 2
Standing at the edge of this ocean
Waves crashing down on the shore
Every thought wrestling for attention
Is drowned out by this magnificent roar

Chorus
Deepest of oceans, highest of heavens
You are much bigger than the whole of Your creation
The smallest sparrow to the ground will not fall
You look on me with grace and affection and say
I'm not small at all

Verse 3
Gazing up into the heavens
The sun, the moon, and countless stars
With a single breath put them into place
With another could blow them away

Chorus
Deepest of oceans, highest of heavens
You are much bigger than the whole of Your creation
The smallest sparrow to the ground will not fall
You look on me with grace and affection and say
I'm not small at all

Track Name: No Alibi
Verse 1
I can't forget about what I see when I look in the mirror
I can't forget about the darkness within, couldn't get any clearer

Pre-Chorus 1
This sin-stained life
Look in His eyes
Can't live this lie
No Alibi

Chorus
His life, it's just not fair
For mine, my lies, my life have earned despair
His life, I wonder why
For mine, I'm glad I have no alibi

Verse 2
I can't forget about what He did on the hill known as Calvary
I can't forget, it's as simple as this, took my place and set me free

Pre-Chorus 2
His perfect life
In exchange for mine
It's finally time
No alibi

Chorus
His life, it's just not fair
For mine, my lies, my life have earned despair
His life, I wonder why
For mine, I'm glad I have no alibi

Track Name: O Holy Night
Verse 1
O Holy Night! (O Holy Night!), O Holy Night! The stars are brightly shining
It is the night (it is the night), It is the night of the dear Saviour's birth

Chorus 1
Long lay the world in sin and error pining
Till He appeared and the soul felt its worth, O Holy Night!

Verse 1
A thrill of hope (a thrill of hope), a thrill of hope the weary world rejoices
For yonder breaks (for yonder breaks), for yonder breaks a new and glorious morn

Chorus 2
Fall on your knees! Oh, hear the angel voices!
O night divine, O night when Christ was born, O Holy Night!

Bridge
O Holy Night! O Holy Night! O Holy Night! O night divine

Chorus 3
His law is love and His gospel is peace
And in his name all oppression shall cease, O Holy Night!

Bridge
O Holy Night! O Holy Night! O Holy Night! O night divine

Track Name: You Rose Again
Verse 1
One solitary life, alone upon that road
You gladly bore the shame
You took the scorn, You took the mocking
You did not resist the pain

Pre-Chorus
It looked like a bitter end
But then, You rose again
You rose again

Verse 2
Your bitter death, how can I contain the wonder
How nails can make one whole
And when it all was over
You saved my broken soul

Chorus
You rose again, You rose again
You rose again, You rose again Lord
For tribe, for tongue, for nation
Fulfilled redemption's plan
For ere the whole of creation
You rose again, You rose again

Bridge
The pain I know is nothing
Like the pain You bore for me
When the cross You humbly carried
When You died upon that tree
The earth we know is groaning
It waits on bended knee
It looks to the Savior Sovereign
And wants to be set free

Chorus
You rose again, You rose again
You rose again, You rose again

Tag
You rose again, You rose again
You rose again, You rose again
You rose again

You rose again, You rose again

Track Name: I'm Gone
Verse 1
Another day, another dollar
You call that living out loud?
What color is your collar?
Most likely something you’ll write home and tell your mom about

Chorus
I’m gone
I’m gone
Don’t try to convince me I’m the one in the wrong
I’m gone

Verse 2
Another word of wisdom
Is this all you’ve got to say?
Just get out there you gotta get some
Surely you know one way or ‘nother I’ll pay, so

Chorus
I’m gone I’m gone
I’m gone I’m gone

Bridge
It’s not that working is cheap
Or life in general is insignificant
It’s just I don’t want to be consumed in a
World where pleasure and profit is king, so

Chorus
I’m gone
I’m gone
I’m gone
I’m gone
Don’t try to convince me I’m the one in the wrong
I’m gone

Lyrics by: Thomas A. Hirschler
Track Name: Just Wondering Why
Verse 1
Black holes, my eyes, body on the way
I’m guessing as the time flies, nothing quite like the heyday

Verse 2
Lucky souls, sleeping, why am I this way?
Looking in another room, sleeping like a baby

Chorus
Just wondering why, just wondering why
Until I find my rest in You, seeking finding certain breath
I’ll be racing, throttle full, not my name but Yours be blessed

Verse 3
Trembling will you fly? Only time has wings
Sleep carry me away, question notwithstanding

Verse 4
Quiet hours, sighing, won’t you say good night?
Second hand, unwinding, [Racing, racing throttle full] sighing now I’m crying [not my name but Yours be blessed]

[Trembling will you fly? Only time has wings
Sleep carry me away, question notwithstanding]

[Quiet hours, sighing, won’t you say good night?
Second hand, unwinding, sighing now I’m crying (laughter)]

[Is it for an aged offense, I reap now what I’ve sown?
Maybe Oz, no picket fence, when rather I’d be home?]

Bridge
Is it for an aged offense, I reap now what I’ve sown?
Maybe Oz, no picket fence, when rather I’d be home?

Chorus
Just wondering why, just wondering why
Until I find my rest in You, seeking finding certain breath
I’ll be racing, throttle full, not my name but Yours be blessed
[Is it for an aged offense, I reap now what I’ve sown?
Maybe Oz, no picket fence, when rather I’d be home?]

Track Name: Let It Fall
Verse 1
The voice of God, it quietly calls
The farmer’s rain, it gently falls

Chorus
Let it fall, let it fall
Rhythmic raindrops dance
Let it fall, let it fall
Sweet rain holds your hand

Verse 2
The land is dry and tired
But with the rain the blade and blossom grow
The field and forest are on fire
It's time to let it go

Chorus
Let it fall, let it fall
Rhythmic raindrops dance
Let it fall, let it fall
Sweet rain holds your hand

Bridge
This is the moment to listen
They a simple tale
Quiet water, how you glisten
All is well

Let it fall, let it fall
Rhythmic raindrops dance
Let it fall, let it fall
Sweet rain holds your hand

Chorus
Let it fall, let it fall
Rhythmic raindrops dance
Let it fall, let it fall
Sweet rain holds your hand

Thought this world had a place for me;
I walked away searching
Thought I could stand on this shifting ground;
But I was wrong, Lord I need You now

Track Name: Well Done
Verse 1
Caught in the crossfire I can hardly breathe
But a friend is in the trenches and I just can't let him bleed
I guess there are two simple words that make the risk and fear
A little less important Words I've got to hear

Chorus
Well done my good and faithful servant
Well done blessed child of the Son
With joy please enter in
Well done my beloved one

Verse 2
Bullets rip passed me the enemy closes in
If I make a wrong move it could be a bitter end Headlong into battle I will not shed a tear
The gates of hell are falling and I expect to hear

Chorus
Well done my good and faithful servant
Well done blessed child of the Son
With joy please enter in
Well done my beloved one

Bridge
I want to hear You call my name and say
That the things I've done have pleased You all along the way
This world is quickly passing I want you Lord to say

Chorus
Well done my good and faithful servant
Well done blessed child of the Son
With joy please enter in
Well done my beloved one

Chorus
Well done my good and faithful servant
Well done blessed child of the Son
With joy please enter in
Well done my beloved one
