Start The New Day The Right Way Words and music by Richard Pratt Start the new day The right way Get down on your knees and pray Praise the Father Cos there’s no other His love carries us away He’ll always be there So evil beware God is watching over us today We won’t be lonely The One and only Will be with us all the way Start the new day The right way Get down on your knees and pray We turn to Jesus We know He sees us He’s the truth, the life and the way I can bet you He won’t forget you It doesn’t matter if the skies are grey Come Lord Jesus Come be with us Your love washed our sins away Before we start each day We’ll turn to God and pray He hears each word we say His Word shows us the way Start the new day The right way Get down on your knees and pray Come Holy Spirit Come guide us through it Holy Spirit guide us through the day You’re the power In every hour You’re the strength to follow the way It makes us tremble That we’re Your temple Come and fill our lives today Start the new day The right way Get down on your knees and pray Take a good look In the Good Book The Word of God is the only way Not only bread Will keep us fed But every word that God has to say When we’re down Life can be found The Word of God will show us the way Before we start each day We’ll turn to God and pray He hears each word we say His Word shows us the way Start the new day The right way Get down on your knees and pray

If people ran to Jesus, why do they run from us? In Him they found acceptance, so why must we always judge? We have become unlike Him, where did we go so wrong? How could we be unloving for so long? Why do the people of the way seem to cause such harm... Where are all the loving open arms? When will we love with the love of Jesus? When will we show the world we care? Why don’t we serve every saint and every sinner? With more than just an empty prayer For the world to see His face, we must treat them with His grace For the world to know the truth, we must love them With the love of Jesus He reached out to the drunkards, to the prostitutes and thieves He reached out to the guilty, and to all the least of these He reached out to the people society condemned He reached out and He didn’t just pretend Why do the holy perfect people have to pick and choose? Where are all the low lifes and the sinners in the pews? When will we love with the love of Jesus? When will we show the world we care? Why don’t we serve every saint and every sinner? With more than just an empty prayer For the world to see His face, we must treat them with His grace For the world to know the truth, we must love them With the love of Jesus Because Jesus came into the world to save the human race And He hung upon the lonely cross, and died there in our place And if He could go so far, and give so much just to forgive What are we judging for? When will we love with the love of Jesus? When will we show the world we care? Why don’t we serve every saint and every sinner? With more than just an empty prayer For the world to see His face, we must treat them with His grace For the world to know the truth, we must love them With the love of Jesus

I Need You 04:18
When I think about the things I’ve done I wanna hide, I wanna run All the people that I’ve spurned And all the bridges I have burned Weeds of bitterness have grown I reap the harvest I have sown And now I come to You again Forgive me Jesus I have sinned I need You in my life today I need You to wash my sins away I need You in everything I do Jesus how much I need You Hold me in Your love I pray Mend this broken jar of clay Mould me in Your loving hands Teach me so I’ll understand I wanna be like You are I want You living in my heart You’re the word and melody Make my life a symphony I need You in my life today I need You to wash my sins away I need You in everything I do Jesus how much I need You

A windless day but a cloudy sky For some a time to say goodbye For some a time to move on up and break on through The rain is gone the air is clear With willing hearts we have come here Your shining light has led the way again The old has gone, the new has come The new beginning has begun Your loving power Jesus shines on us Our eyes have opened to the dawn Once again we’ve been reborn Your Spirit in us Jesus we lift You high As we fly with You on wings of eagles Worshiping Your holy name Take our pride Lord, take the glory Take the honour, take the fame Jesus You are Rock of Ages You’re the music, You’re the words Take this song Lord, take it now As a new beginning, time to start over A new beginning, a new beginning With holy awe we give our praise Lord we worship You always It’s not about us Jesus, it’s all about You We lift our hands, we lift our hearts We let you lead us from the start So take our hearts Lord Jesus, take our whole lives And though we often turn away We’re coming back to You today We put this time into Your hands Won’t You come, Lord won’t You stay God of wonders, God of love You have made us sing again Take this song Lord, take it now As a new beginning As we fly with You on wings of eagles Worshiping Your holy name Take our pride Lord, take the glory Take the honour, take the fame Jesus You are Rock of Ages You’re the music, You’re the words Take this song Lord, take it now As a new beginning, time to start over A new beginning, a new beginning A new beginning, time to start over A new beginning, a new beginning

The clock on the wall is not my friend I watch time tick away I strive for tomorrow and long for yesterday Instead of living for today I finish another drink, put out another cigarette Can’t find what I’m looking for Things don’t make sense, can’t solve this mystery I know there must be more Now I’ve found something That lifts me up and gives me hope Your love has a plan for me I will follow where You lead Your grace provides for me I have everything I need I don’t have to worry anymore My future is in You Now I don’t worry about tomorrow And yesterday is history You lead the way and I’ll trust in You One day at a time is all I need Now I’ve found something That lifts me up and gives me hope Your love has a plan for me I will follow where You lead Your grace provides for me I have everything I need I don’t have to worry anymore My future is in You There are days when the world gets me down And I struggle in the rain But Your love never leaves me that way You restore me and I walk with You again Now I’ve found something That lifts me up and gives me hope Your love has a plan for me I will follow where You lead Your grace provides for me I have everything I need I don’t have to worry anymore My future is in You

Alone in the dark I come, I long to see Your face Sand in between my toes, Lord I’m in a sacred place And I know that it’s just You and me As I gaze up at the stars And I feel Your breath on my face Lord I’ve never felt so free King of the ocean, You are so wonderful, so wonderful tonight Lord of the waters, You are so beautiful, and I bow down at the sight God of the sea and sky, Your majesty overwhelms me And I fall on my knees and I worship the King of the ocean Watching the waves crashing down I could never get my fill I count every grain on the shore but Your love is greater still And I know that You watch over me And You’ll never let me go And I feel the world at my feet In your glory overflow King of the ocean, You are so wonderful, so wonderful tonight Lord of the waters, You are so beautiful, and I bow down at the sight God of the sea and sky, Your majesty overwhelms me And I fall on my knees and I worship the King of the ocean the King of the ocean

The road is long and the going is tough I don’t feel like I’m strong enough The mountains are high and the rivers are wide How am I gonna reach the other side? Trials and tribulations keep getting in the way I dunno how I’m gonna keep the wolves at bay Even when there seems to be no reason or rhyme I’m gonna run this race one step at a time I’m never giving up what God wants me to do I’m gonna run this race I’m gonna see it through Cos I’m a new creation, tribulations take me higher I’m a new creation, gold is purified by fire Trials and tribulations keep getting in the way I dunno how I’m gonna keep the wolves at bay Even when there seems to be no reason or rhyme I’m gonna run this race one step at a time I’m never giving up what God wants me to do I’m gonna run this race I’m gonna see it through I’m gonna cross the line, I’m reaching for the everlasting prize I’m a new creation, tribulations take me higher I’m a new creation, gold is purified by fire I’m never giving up what God wants me to do I’m gonna run this race I’m gonna see it through Cos I’m a new creation, tribulations take me higher I’m a new creation, gold is purified by fire

I never realised how far I’d gone I never realised how much was wrong My jar of clay lies broken on the ground And the pieces lie scattered all around So I bring my brokenness to my Saviour I leave what’s left before the Cross of hope I pour my heart out to the One whose love went beyond the grave He died to save and rose to set me free Crying in the rain, take me and make me whole again Heal me with Your love I know You feel my pain, Jesus won’t You help me start again Heal me with Your love I’m picking up the pieces, one by one I will try to walk the road for me Through tears and pain I have victory I’m more than a conqueror, because You are with me My joy is complete, because You comfort me So I bring my brokenness to my Saviour I leave what’s left before the Cross of hope I pour my heart out to the One whose love went beyond the grave He died to save and rose to set me free Crying in the rain, take me and make me whole again Heal me with Your love I know You feel my pain, Jesus won’t You help me start again Heal me with Your love I’m picking up the pieces, one by one So I bring my brokenness to my Saviour I leave what’s left before the Cross of hope I pour my heart out to the One whose love went beyond the grave He died to save and rose to set me free Crying in the rain, take me and make me whole again Heal me with Your love I know You feel my pain, Jesus won’t You help me start again Heal me with Your love I’m picking up the pieces, one by one Crying in the rain (crying in the rain) Make me whole again (make me whole again) I know You feel my pain (I know You feel my pain) Jesus help me start again (Help me start again) I’m picking up the pieces, one by one

Battered and broken, nailed to a tree I watch from a distance but Your eyes are on me My heart filled with sorrow, I soak in Your pain And each time I turn away, I come back again Cos there was something about You, and the love in Your eyes There was something about You, and it made me wanna cry I come to sit at the foot of the Cross I come to worship the Saviour who died Alone and forsaken at Calvary Covered in blood, beaten and wounded, He looks down at me And His eyes are filled with tears And He whispers “My Son, I love you, I love you I love you” And then the sky grew dark, and they came to take Him away But the blood stained Cross, covered in mercy, will always stay Battered and broken, I long to be free Sometimes You feel distant, but You’re always with me My heart filled with sorrow, You soak in my pain And each time I turn away, You call me back again And Lord there’s something about You, and the love in Your eyes Yes there’s something about You, and it made me realise I come to sit at the foot of the Cross I come to worship the Saviour who died Alone and forsaken at Calvary Covered in Your blood, cleansed and forgiven, I look up at Him And my eyes are filled with tears And I whisper “My God, I love you, I love you, I love you”

The body of Christ, broken for you He paid the price just for you So take and eat the Bread of Life Take and eat and be renewed The blood of Christ, shed for you He gave his life just for you So take and drink and feel your sins wash away Take and drink and start again today It isn’t just a piece of bread in your hand It isn’t just a glass of wine The King of Glory lying dead upon the Cross And every nail was driven deeper just for you And every single drop of blood fell just for you The body of Christ, broken for you He paid the price just for you So take and eat the Bread of Life Take and eat and be renewed The blood of Christ, shed for you He gave his life just for you So take and drink and feel your sins wash away Take and drink and start again today It isn’t just a piece of bread in your hand It isn’t just a glass of wine The King of Glory lying dead upon the Cross And every nail was driven deeper just for you And every single drop of blood fell just for you The body of Christ, broken for you The blood of Christ, shed for you
