Prelude 02:51
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4 In him was life,[a] and the life was the light of men. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. 6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7 He came as a witness, to bear witness about the light, that all might believe through him. 8 He was not the light, but came to bear witness about the light. 9 The true light, which gives light to everyone, was coming into the world. 10 He was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world did not know him. 11 He came to his own,[b] and his own people[c] did not receive him. 12 But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, 13 who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God. 14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son[d] from the Father, full of grace and truth. 15 (John bore witness about him, and cried out, “This was he of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me ranks before me, because he was before me.’”) 16 For from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace.[e] 17 For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. John 1:1-17 (ESV)

I see a child lying in a manger In the sky a star is shining bright I hear angels singing hallelujah Behold here lies the King of Light There’s a man calling us to listen The kingdom of God is now at hand He preached of love and grace and mercy When will we ever understand? There’s a Light shining in the darkness And the darkness can never overcome He is Life, the Light of all mankind A glorious Light that shines for everyone I see a man dying on a cross All my sin and shame He made His own For my freedom He gladly paid the cost The King of Light who sits upon the throne There’s a Light shining in the darkness And the darkness can never overcome He is Life, the Light of all mankind A glorious Light that shines for everyone If you have questions, if you are searching If there’s a yearning deep down inside Let me lead you to my Lord Jesus He is the answer, He is the Light And the Light is shining in the darkness And the darkness can never overcome He is Life, the Light of all mankind A glorious Light that shines for everyone

Need 04:37
Walking down the street, see the people rushing around Don’t care about anyone else, too busy to look around I see the beggar on the corner, no one stops to give him a dime There’s no love for one another, and that’s when I realised This town needs Jesus, He is the only solution This town needs Jesus, we need a spiritual revolution This town needs Jesus, share His love with everyone This town needs Jesus, Father let Your kingdom come This town needs Jesus Sitting watching the news, another war another tragedy People killing other people, there’s so much pain and agony The poor are getting poorer while others bleed the land So many people suffering, why can’t we all lend a helping hand? This world needs Jesus, He is the only solution This world needs Jesus, we need a spiritual revolution This world needs Jesus, share His love with everyone This world needs Jesus, Father let Your kingdom come This world needs Jesus Do we really care for the suffering and despair? We must learn to reach out, we have to learn to care I hang my head in shame, cos I’m just as much to blame Change my heart oh God so I can reach out in the name of Jesus We all need Jesus, He is the only solution We all need Jesus, we need a spiritual revolution We all need Jesus, share His love with everyone We all need Jesus, Father let Your kingdom come We all need Jesus

There lived a man They called Him the Christ There lives a most amazing man The way, the truth and the life All the people ran to see Him All searching for the Light He healed the lepers And He made the blind man see He raised people from the dead And He set the sinners free But the people turned against Him And they nailed Him to a tree Well there came a mighty thunder At the breaking of the day When the Father reached down from above And He rolled the stone away! He’s alive, He’s alive! Lay down your heavy burdens Cos Jesus is alive Well you won’t see it in the papers You won’t see it on tv But the power that raised Him from the dead It’s in You and it’s in me He’s alive, He’s alive! Lay down your heavy burdens Cos Jesus is alive Lay down your heavy burdens Cos Jesus is alive Lay down your heavy burdens Cos Jesus… He’s alive

Our Father 03:13
Our Father who art in heaven, Hallowed be Thy Name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, On earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, As we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, But deliver us from evil. For Thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory, For ever and ever, amen! For Thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory, For ever and ever, amen! Amen!

I Know 05:17
This world it can be so distracting My heart seems to twist and twist and turn Some days I don’t know what to believe anymore So many voices in my head telling me just what to do But when I hear Your voice instead I find a life that’s true I know that my God is always faithful I know that He’s forgiven me and set me free I know that His love and grace surround me And He’ll be by my side every day and night, eternally I know This world has got nothing left to offer My heart, it belongs to God alone Deep down I desire to follow Jesus always So many voices in my head telling me just what to do But when I hear Your voice instead I find a life that’s true I know that my God is always faithful I know that He’s forgiven me and set me free I know that His love and grace surround me And He’ll be by my side every day and night, eternally I know, I know

Like a Child 06:34
When I was a child I was pure in heart and mind As the years went past, I left childlike ways behind When I learned of Jesus, I knew I’d found the way I wanted to be more like Him every single day So I read the Holy Bible, every single word I got to know Him more, with everything I’d learned But knowledge and wisdom failed to light the flame Instead I found something that knowledge can’t explain Like a child I must become humble Like a child I’ll draw near to Him Like a child I’ll enter the kingdom Like a child I’m free of sin As a child there is understanding As a child I’m born again As a child I will find greatness But I must become like a child again And so began my journey on the straight and narrow road I wanted to follow Jesus along the path that I must go So I filled my mind and soul with God’s Holy Word But I wrapped myself in law until the truth became a blur I thought I knew it all because of everything I’d read I thought I knew the way, but I had been mislead When everything seemed clear, that’s when I failed to see A simple truth, so profound, it drags me to my knees Like a child I must become humble Like a child I’ll draw near to Him Like a child I’ll enter the kingdom Like a child I’m free of sin As a child there is understanding As a child I’m born again As a child I will find greatness But I must become like a child again Like a child I must become humble Like a child I’ll draw near to Him Like a child I’ll enter the kingdom Like a child I’m free of sin As a child there is understanding As a child I’m born again As a child I will find greatness But I must become like a child again Like a child I must be born again

Coming Home 05:27
Flying high, my head above the clouds I couldn’t see where I was going Then came the fall, how could I be so blind My foolishness has left me nothing Father I’m coming back to You I’m tired of being alone Jesus, I turned my back on You Please forgive me I’m coming home Silver and gold, here today and gone tomorrow I had my priorities all wrong Never again will I trust in mammon I’m going home where I belong Father I’m coming back to You I’m tired of being alone Jesus, I turned my back on You Please forgive me I’m coming home My treasure on earth has corroded And stands as a witness against me From now on my treasure is in heaven Where no rust, moth or thieves can take from me Father I’m coming back to You I’m tired of being alone Jesus, I turned my back on You Please forgive me I’m coming home

Been running for my life, been running for my soul Cos it’s easier than giving up control Don’t wanna sacrifice, don’t wanna let it go Even though this life is taking its toll But I find peace in one place only, I find peace in You Can I throw away my life and turn away from the world? Can I give up all the things I hold so dear? Can I count it all as nothing, because You are all I need? You’re all I need Everything’s so dark, everything’s so cold When I take my only love out of the fold But still I follow on, still I push on through Cos it’s easier than turning back to You But I find peace in one place only, I find peace in You Can I throw away my life and turn away from the world? Can I give up all the things I hold so dear? Can I count it all as nothing, because You are all I need? You’re all I need Can I find my way back home although I’ve wandered oh so far? Can I ever show my face to You again? Can I find the strength and courage to say You are all I need? You’re all I need, You’re all I need But I find peace in one place only, I find peace in You I find peace in one place only, I find peace in You Yes I’ll throw away my life and turn away from the world Yes I’ll give up all the things I hold so dear? Yes I’ll count it all as nothing, cos You are all I need You’re all I need You’re all I need You’re all I need You’re all I need

Lamb of God 05:09
There was a voice crying in the wilderness Prepare ye the way of the Lord The kingdom of God is now at hand Make straight your paths and listen to the Word Have you heard? Have you heard? The Son of God came among us as a man The Spirit came upon Him like a dove He came to reach out to the lost and broken He healed the sick and suffering with His love From God above, from God above He was betrayed by the one He knew as friend He was mocked and scourged and crucified Blameless He hung upon the cross In triumph breathed His last and then He died Please tell me why, please tell me why On the third day, just before the sunrise The earth shook and the stone was rolled away God’s awesome power raised Christ from the grave We are saved, we are saved Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world You are worthy Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world You are holy Jesus Christ the lamb of God is risen His love for us so great He gave His life All you have to do is to believe That God loved us so much He paid the price We have life, eternal life On the third day, just before the sunrise The earth shook and the stone was rolled away God’s awesome power raised Christ from the grave We are saved, we are saved Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world You are worthy Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world You are holy

I have journeyed and strived, I have wrestled and tried To find peace in the midst of my sin I have searched the world through, and found this to be true That our God can redeem anything He is slow to anger and quick to forgive He is rich in mercy and wondrous grace He laid down His life, the great sacrifice To wash away all of our stains He poured out His grace and died in our place, And forgives us again and again This is real love... this is real love So come just as you are, every stain every scar And lay it all down at His feet Come and drink from the well, and hear people tell Of His mercy and His love oh so sweet He is slow to anger and quick to forgive He is rich in mercy and wondrous grace He laid down His life, the great sacrifice To wash away all of our stains He poured out His grace and died in our place, And forgives us again and again This is real love... this is real love This is real love... this is real love He laid down His life, the great sacrifice To wash away all of our stains He poured out His grace and died in our place, And forgives us again and again This is real love... this is real love This is real love... this is real love

Far far away, beyond the galaxies The God of all the world sat on His throne All creation trembled at His mighty name The most glorious king the world had ever known This God, indescribable This God, unreachable Then one glorious day, a child was born A humble boy who grew into a man And in the hills of Galilee He changed the world With love and with forgiveness in His hand This man, God in human skin This man, saves us from our sin He walked on water, He calmed the thunder He caused the sun to rise and fall He touched the lepers, and healed the sinners And He died for one and all And though there’s darkness all around us He’s the Light that shines within Son of man, Son of God, Saviour Jesus Deep in my heart there’s an emptiness I’ve tried and tried again to fill it in But nothing seems to last more than a day or two And then I feel deserted all again But this man, this man from Galilee He can, He can comfort me He walked on water, He calmed the thunder He caused the sun to rise and fall He touched the lepers, and healed the sinners And He died for one and all And though there’s darkness all around us He’s the Light that shines within Son of man, son of God, Saviour Jesus So come to the cross and see the nails The God of all the universe lying still The sins of all the world piled upon Him there The prophecies of ages all fulfilled And now, we’re no longer condemned And now, our God became our friend He walked on water, He calmed the thunder He caused the sun to rise and fall He touched the lepers, and healed the sinners And He died for one and all And though there’s darkness all around us He’s the Light that shines within Son of man, son of God, Saviour Jesus
