about

What started out as a demo EP to send to local record companies soon grew into a full length album, recorded and produced by band member Luke Powell in the band’s home studio.

CrossRoad combine a variety of genres with passionate lyrics about the life of Jesus. Here we have the old school rock in songs like the 12 bar blues/rock "Rock of Ages" and "You're Always There", powerful ballads "Come Unto Me" and "Never Again", and the gentle "A Picture of Your Love" and "Sing Me To Sleep".

There's something for everyone here! If you're passionate about Jesus then these songs will not fail to move you into His presence.

Track Name: Rock of Ages
Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
let me hide myself in thee;
let the water and the blood,
from thy wounded side which flowed,
be of sin the double cure;
save from wrath and make me pure.

Not the labors of my hands
can fulfill thy law's commands;
could my zeal no respite know,
could my tears forever flow,
all for sin could not atone;
thou must save, and thou alone.

Rock of ages, rock of ages
Rock of ages, rock of ages
Rock of ages, cleft for me,
let me hide myself in thee.

Nothing in my hand I bring,
simply to the cross I cling;
naked, come to thee for dress;
helpless, look to thee for grace;
foul, I to the fountain fly;
wash me, Savior, or I die.

While I draw this fleeting breath,
when mine eyes shall close in death,
when I soar to worlds unknown,
see thee on thy judgment throne,
Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
Let me hide myself in Thee

Rock of ages, rock of ages
Rock of ages, rock of ages
Rock of ages, cleft for me,
let me hide myself in thee.
let me hide myself in thee.
Track Name: To God Be The Glory
To God be the glory, great things He has done,
So loved He the world that He gave us His Son,
Who yielded His life our redemption to win,
And opened the life-gate that all may go in.

Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
Let the earth hear His voice;
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord,
Let the people rejoice;
Oh, come to the Father, through Jesus the Son,
And give Him the glory; great things He has done.


Oh, perfect redemption, the purchase of blood,
To every believer the promise of God;
The vilest offender who truly believes,
That moment from Jesus a pardon receives.


Great things He has taught us, great things He has done,
And great our rejoicing through Jesus the Son;
But purer, and higher, and greater will be
Our wonder, our rapture when Jesus we see.
Track Name: Never Again
How many times have I fallen
And come so short of Your glory
Followed my own ways and drifted from You

How many times have I stumbled
Bound by the ropes of my sin
With only Your angels to catch me when I fall

I'm amazed at Your love
Your grace and Your mercy
I'm in awe of Your forgiveness and I thank You again

And though my sins are like scarlet
You've washed me white as snow
And though my hands are like crimson
You've washed me white as wool and let me go

And every one of my sins is cast into the deepest sea
And You've forgiven me
And You'll never remember my sins
Never again

Now I'm afraid of nothing
Cos You are here with me
You're my light and my salvation
Who should I fear?

But I can't help feeling guilty
For the times I've let You down
And Jesus I'm sorry
I've hurt You once again

Won't You show me Your love
Your grace and Your mercy
I don't deserve Your forgiveness but I need it again

Cos though my sins are like scarlet
You've washed me white as snow
And though my hands are like crimson
You've washed me white as wool and let me go

And every one of my sins is cast into the deepest sea
And You've forgiven me
And You'll never remember my sins
Never again

How can someone like me talk to someone like You?
I'm poor and I'm weak and I'm nothing like You

But you laid down Your life on that old wooden cross
You paid for my sins and made way for the lost

And You'd do it all again
Just because You love me
More than I can understand
More than I can ever see

And though my sins are like scarlet
You've washed me white as snow
And though my hands are like crimson
You've washed me white as wool and let me go

And every one of my sins is cast into the deepest sea
And You've forgiven me
And You'll never remember my sins

And though my sins are like scarlet
You've washed me white as snow
And though my hands are like crimson
You've washed me white as wool and let me go

And every one of my sins is cast into the deepest sea
And You've forgiven me
And You'll never remember my sins
Never again
Track Name: A Picture of Your Love
I tried to paint a picture
of Your love
But I couldn’t find the colours
And my canvas was too small
The colours of the rainbow aren’t enough
To paint a picture of Your love at all

I tried to write a song about Your love
But the words sounded empty
And the music sounded poor
There’s no music beautiful enough
To paint a picture of Your love at all

Na na na...

I tried to tell someone about Your love
But my words sounded hollow and I was feeling small
Nothing that I say could be enough
To paint a picture of Your love at all

It was only when I reached out with Your love
To dry a tear of sorrow and to help the sick and poor
It was only when I reached out with Your love
That the picture of Your love became clear to all

Na na na...

It was only when I reached out with Your love
That the grace and the mercy, the tenderness and care
The power and the glory of Your love became clear to all
Track Name: I Will Sing
I Will Sing
Words and music
by Luke Powell

I will sing to the God who rescued me
I will sing to the God who set me free
I will sing to the One who took my place
I will sing to the One who covered me in grace

I will sing to the God who rescued me
I will sing to the God who set me free
I will sing to the One who took my place
I will sing to the One who covered me in grace

Everybody on Your feet come on let’s dance
Get up out of Your seat and clap Your hands
SHOUT the name of Jesus to all the lands tonight

Everybody jump around rip up the floor
Let them hear us all around let them hear us roar
Cos Jesus is the King forever Oh yeah
So I will sing
Track Name: Come Unto Me
My child
I count every breath that you take
I watch your every step
And I wait
I hang on every choice that you make

My child
Do you know you’re very special to me?
How long must I wait before you see?
How long before your heart will turn to Me?

My child
I watch as you live your life each day
And I long to walk with you along the way
I reach for you but you just turn away

My child
I have a dream especially for you
And there’s nothing that can stop it coming true
Something special that only you can do

Come unto Me
I will break the chains that bind you and set you free
I will lift you up so you can fly with me
I gave everything for you on Calvary

Come unto Me
I knew and loved you before the world began
I love you more than you can understand
I’m always here for you just take my hand

Come unto Me

My child
I see you chasing pretty rainbows every day
When you reach them they just fade away
I see your blue skies slowly turning grey

My child
I watch as all your dreams disappear
I can feel all your hopes turn to fear
The sparkle in your eye has turned to tears

My child
I see you stumble and fall yet again
I see you lying broken in the rain
When you’re hurting you know I feel the pain

My child
Do you know that I’m always here for you?
There’s no darkness that I can’t help you through
Just trust in Me and see what I can do

Come unto Me
I will break the chains that bind you and set you free
I will lift you up so you can fly with me
I gave everything for you on Calvary

Come unto Me
I knew and loved you before the world began
I love you more than you can understand
I’m always here for you just take my hand

Come unto Me
Track Name: Sinner's Blues
I got the sinner’s blues
Like getting up on Monday morning
But it’s Saturday night and I still got those sinner’s blues

I don’t know what to do
Every day it’s the same old temptation
And it wastes all my time
And it wastes all my money too

I been all around the world when I only need to look at You
Only You can solve the sinner’s blues
The sinner’s blues… Yeah

I got the sinner’s blues
Like getting up on Monday morning
But it’s Saturday night and I still got those sinner’s blues

I don’t know what to do
Every day it’s the same old temptation
And it wastes all my time
And it wastes all my money too

I been all around the world when I only need to look at You
Only You can solve the sinner’s blues

Oh Lord
Only You can solve the sinner’s blues

Oh Lord
Only You
Can solve the sinner’s blues
Track Name: Superficial
Dear God
Here I am in worship once again
I’m having lots of fun
with all my friends
Dancin’ around but I forgot about You

Dear God
I sing along with every song that plays
But I don’t even hear the words I say
Cos I’m not even thinking about You


But what’s the point of worship if it’s not about You
And what’s the point of singing empty words
And what’s the point of church if not to glorify You
Oh God


It’s all about You, You’re the only reason I’m right here today
And God I love You more than anybody
Cos You’re the only way
I wanna come back to the heart of worship and honour you in EVERYTHING I do
I surrender to You

Dear God
I’m tired of being a superficial child
I’m tired of giving worship that’s defiled
Cos You are King and You deserve more


Dear God
I wanna sing from
deep inside my heart
I wanna worship You
with every part of me
Cos You died for me


You hung upon the Cross so that my life could be clean
You love me more than I can understand
You deserve the best of me
I give you my life
Oh God


It’s all about You, You’re the only reason I’m right here today
And God I love You more than anybody
Cos You’re the only way
I wanna come back to the heart of worship and honour you in EVERYTHING I do

It’s all about You, You’re the only reason I’m right here today
And God I love You more than anybody
Cos You’re the only way
I wanna come back to the heart of worship and honour you in EVERYTHING I do
I surrender to You
Track Name: Just For a Moment
For a moment
Just for a moment
Take your eyes off the world
Set your eyes on ME

I too see the pain
I hear the world’s blame
How and why is it’s cry
As you look to the sky

For a moment
Just for a moment
Take your eyes off the world
Set your eyes on ME

No matter how far you’ve run
Turn around and see my Son
My love is bigger than
your biggest wrong

For a moment
Just for a moment
Take your eyes off the world
Set your eyes on ME
Track Name: Sing Me To Sleep
The stars are shining brightly in Your sky tonight
Another day is turning into bed
I pull the curtains closed and then turn off the light
It’s time for me to rest my weary head

But every night I get down on my knees and pray
I thank the Lord for his amazing love
I tell him all my problems and then I pray for all my friends
And then I ask the Lord to come down from above

And I say sing me to sleep, O Beautiful One
Sing me to sleep,tonight
Sing me to sleep, wondrous King of all
Sing me to sleep,tonight

Hold me in Your arms O loving Father
I wanna feel Your warm embrace
I wanna see Your glory in my dreams tonight
I wanna gaze upon Your face
Track Name: You're Always There
When the wind is blowing I can feel it on my skin
I just can’t see it that’s all
Just like Your love that surrounds me
I can feel it in my heart
I can’t explain it that’s all

When the clouds block the sun I know it’s still there
I just can’t see it that’s all
When it seems like You’re nowhere to be found
You are closer than ever before

You’re always there
When You see me falling
You’re always there
You pick me up again
You’re always there
When You hear me calling
You’re always there
When I need a Friend

When my troubles seem to get the upper hand
You are always there for me
When it seems like the world has won again
I remember Calvary

You’re always there
When You see me falling
You’re always there
You pick me up again
You’re always there
When You hear me calling
You’re always there
When I need a Friend

The ways of this worlds keep getting in the way
Why do I always doubt the promises You make

You’re always there
When You see me falling
You’re always there
You pick me up again
You’re always there
When You hear me calling
You’re always there
When I need a Friend

You’re always there
Your promises abound me
You’re always there
I’ll never be alone
You’re always there
You’ll always be with me
You’re always there
Everywhere I go
