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.

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.

Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored He hath loosed the fateful lightning of His terrible swift sword His truth is marching on Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! Glory! Glory! Hallelujah! His truth is marching on He has sounded forth the trumpet that shall never call retreat He is sifting out the hearts of men before His judgment seat Oh, be swift, my soul, to answer Him; be jubilant, my feet Our God is marching on In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea With a glory in His spirit that transfigures you and me As He died to make men holy, let us die to make men free While God is marching on

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.
