Track Name: Holy Party
Have you heard what they say
Have you heard the Good News?
You don't wanna stay away
You don't wanna refuse

So come gather in the hallways
And in the churchyard
There's a mighty celebration
In the house of God

So come on come on
and take a stand
Come on come on and see
You got no excuse
When all heaven breaks loose

It's a holy party and we're having a ball
Lifting up the roof and pushing back all the walls
Praising all day and dancing all night
God is in control
Better hold on tight

It's a holy party
It's the talk of the town
We aint letting up
Oh and we aint lying down
Until the whole world sees
Yeah! Until the whole world knows

Can you feel the Spirit moving, can you feel the heat?
Everybody's going crazy
Just dancing in the street

So come and join the fun
And count it all as loss
Cos there's room for everyone
At the foot of the Cross
Track Name: Everything About You
When I think of all the wondrous things You've done
I can only stand in awe of the Almighty One
Cos You are God alone, and You reign upon the throne
And Jesus I love everything about You

Cos You forgave us
And You have saved us

No one else will do
No one else will do
Jesus I love everything about You
It is only You, it is only You
Jesus I love everything about You
I love everything about You
I love everything about You

I will raise my hands and praise Your holy name
Because You set me free and I will never be the same
Cos You are God on high and You never pass me by
And Jesus I love everything about You
Track Name: Walking With the King
Well I used to live my life filled with worry and strife every day
Yeah I used to walk around with my lip on the ground all the time
I had nothing left to pay my dues
No way to chase away my blues
Oh

Well I used to always aim for fortune and fame and for glory
Yeah I used to spend my days in a selfish haze all alone
Til the day that I found grace
And I walked into a holy place
Oh

Now I'm walking with the King
Yeah I'm walking with the King
He's the reason I dance
He's the reason I sing

If you wanna rock n roll
And find rest for your soul
Then lay down your everything
And come walking with the King

Well some people try to say that I gave it away all for nothing
They say it's all in vain and that I'll fall down again
And give in
Ah but even if my life falls apart
I'll be seeking Him with all of my heart
Oh

Now I'm walking with the King
Yeah I'm walking with the King
He's the reason I dance
He's the reason I sing

If you wanna rock n roll
And find rest for your soul
Then lay down your everything
And come walking with the King
Track Name: My Friend Who Walks With Me
I have to admit that I don't understand
When pain and despair is all I see
Everything around seems to drag me down
And trials and troubles surround me

You might ask how do I carry the load
Well I don't 'cause its too heavy for me
I have a Friend who's with me to the end
And He carries my burdens for me

He walks with me, and talks with me
And in the darkness His light helps me see
He's there when I call, picks me up when I fall
His love has set me free
My Friend who walks with me

I consider the cost of His death on the cross
And the pain that He went through for me
But He rose from the grave, hallelujah
Jesus is the Friend who walks with me

He walks with me, and talks with me
And in the darkness His light helps me see
He's there when I call, picks me up when I fall
His love has set me free
My Friend who walks with me
Track Name: Lord Above All
Lord above all, Father in heaven
You have my heart in Your hands
Mercy divine, love without measure
Grace that I don't understand

Cos I am not worthy to sit at Your table
Or gather the crumbs off Your floor
But You made a way You kept Your promise
And filled me with grace all the more

You sent Your son into the darkness
Down from Your glory above
He became flesh and lived here among us
And showed us Your mercy and love

Then sentenced to die He was beaten and wounded
And up Calvary's hill made to crawl
Then fixed to a cross Jesus died like a sinner
While whispering forgiveness to all

I am alive because Jesus saved me
I have been purified
I am complete because Jesus touched me
Now I am whole inside

What can compare to the heart of the Father?
What can come close to the Son?
Death has no say the grave is empty
Jesus the Saviour has won!

What can compare to the heart of the Father?
What can come close to the Son?
Death has no say the grave is empty
Jesus the Saviour has won!
Jesus the Saviour has won!
Jesus the Saviour has won!
Track Name: You Walked a Mile in My Shoes
Your will is my desire
Your word is my command
I try to do what's right
but evil guides my hand
I'm a captive to my flesh
there's a war inside of me
Oh wretched one am I
who can set me free?

I struggle on the road
that leads to victory
I always lose my way
I get lost so easily
My sin has pulled me down
I fall upon my knees
I call upon Your name
help me Jesus please

For a debt I cannot pay
You chose to pay the price
What did You see in me
that was worth a cost so high?

You walked a mile in my shoes You carried my shame
Up Calvary's hill in sorrow and pain
You were nailed to a cross, it should have been me
But You took my place so I could go free
You walked a mile in my shoes
a mile in my shoes

I'm covered by Your grace
I'm cleansed by Your blood
I marvel at Your mercy
I'm amazed at Your love
I'll proclaim Your love
and how You rescued me
I'll sing of Your forgiveness and how it sets me free

For a debt I could not pay
You chose to pay the price
What did You see in me
that was worth a cost so high?

You walked a mile in my shoes You carried my shame
Up Calvary's hill in sorrow and pain
You were nailed to a cross, it should have been me
But You took my place so I could go free
You walked a mile in my shoes
a mile in my shoes

No greater love has anyone than to lay their life down
for their friends
Praise Jesus Christ
the Lamb of God
who died and rose again
Track Name: Soldiers
We are soldiers of the cross
We are fighting for the lost
We don't use guns, we don't use swords
Our only weapon is God's word

Jesus is our King of kings
He rules over everything
We obey His great command
To spread the Word across the land

Jesus is our King of kings
He rules over everything
We obey His great command
To spread the Word across the land

The devil is our enemy
And his principalities
But Jesus gave us victory
The battle's won and we are free

Put on the armour of God
So we can stand against evil
For we do not fight flesh and blood
Put principalities and powers, rulers of the darkness
Forces of evil in heavenly places

Jesus died upon the cross
He gave His life to save the lost
And then He rose up from the grave
He's alive let's give Him praise
He's alive let's give Him praise
He's alive let's give Him praise

Put on the armour of God
So we can stand against evil
For we do not fight flesh and blood
Put principalities and powers, rulers of the darkness
Forces of evil in heavenly places
Track Name: Hammer No More
Covered in blood he comes home and tears off his clothes
To throw them away
Hoping they’ll hide from his wife and five year old girl
Who’ll want him to play

As he washes his hands and his face, the sink turns to red
And then back to white
In the back of his mind, he tells himself
“It’s just a job , and I’ll be alright”...

As he lies awake, his wife pulls him closer
and says "Did you see that storm?
When I picked up our daughter from school, the sky turned black
The thunder it roared

I was afraid that you were stuck out in the rain with those thieves
But you look alright
You said something happened today that most likely would change
The rest of our lives”

As I drove the last nails, the tears washed the blood from my hands
I could see in His eyes I had murdered an innocent man
After ninety three nails, you would think I could drive ninety four
But tonight I’ve decided this soldier will hammer no more

Instead of the cursing and yelling that I always hear
He only cried
Somehow I felt that He knew long ago I’d be here
Watching Him die

As I shoved my way through the great crowd, I turned back to see
Just before He gave His life, He looked at me

God in Heaven, what have I done?
Have I truly taken Your only Son?
May the life He lived not be in vain
Take this life of mine only for Your gain

As I drove the last nails, the tears washed the blood from my hands
I could see in His eyes I had murdered an innocent man
After ninety three nails, you would think I could drive ninety four
But tonight I’ve decided this soldier will hammer no more
Track Name: Nothing Too Big
My soul is thirsty, I long for You
My heart feels empty when I’m far from You
I need Your Spirit, I need Your touch
Pour out Your grace, Lord, we need it so much

You spoke the sun, You breathed the stars
And You hold them all
Who can compare, almighty One

There is nothing too big for my God
No mountain’s too high with my God
No road is too long because of my Jesus
I’m soaring on wings with my God
I’ll never let go cos He is my everything
And nothing’s too big for my God

I long to feel You here in this place
I can’t wait to meet You one day face to face
I worship You, God, with all my soul
You are the true God, come make me whole

How beautiful, Your name O God
I stand in awe
I trust in You and You alone
and I will lift my voice and sing

There is nothing too big for my God
No mountain’s too high with my God
No road is too long because of my Jesus
I’m soaring on wings with my God
I’ll never let go cos He is my everything
And nothing’s too big for my God

I can do all things
through Christ
who strengthens me

Track Name: Even So
You have searched me and You've known me from the start
You have counted every step and each beating of my heart
You have walked with me and sheltered me
Through more than I could bear
And You went to Calvary and gave your life to save me there

But I have wandered from the road You paved for me
And I have fallen oh so short of the man I ought to be
When I see the way I've lived I wonder if You can forgive
Lord I don't deserve to even touch Your robe

But even so, even so, You have loved me even so
When I fell down at the Cross, You washed me clean from head to toe
Even so, even so, You forgave me even so
Father You have loved me more than I could know
Track Name: My Poor Heart is True
Day by day and night by night I try to be like You Lord
I know that don't seem likely but you know that it's true Lord
And every hour of every day I need Your saving grace
Cos time and time and time again I fall flat on my face

Day by day and night by night I try to walk Your way Lord
I know that don't seem true now by the things I do and say Lord
And I believe You love me so, that even in my sin
You always show me mercy and help me start again

You're the God of everything, You'll reign forever more
You make me dance, You make me sing, You're all I'm living for
God on high, O God above, please show me what to do
To make You smile, to make You see that my poor heart is true

You created everything, the land, the sea and sky
And if it's true You think of me, I have to wonder why
I know I'm just a simple man, and Lord You must agree
So here I am, just take me Lord, I'm Yours eternally
Track Name: Endless Mercy
Oh Lord, what a mess
I had to have it my way, I wanted nothing less
Oh Lord, what have I done
A product of a self made man, I hate what I've become

Oh Lord, I have failed
With all my good intentions only foolishness prevailed
Oh Lord, what went wrong
A mould of pride and vanity, I'm a loud resounding gong

I'm just a sinful man, why do You reach for me?
I don't understand what You see in me
Why was the blood of Jesus shed to set me free?
Why did He have to die, to save someone like me?

Oh, endless mercy x4

Oh Lord, I still fail
I struggle with myself but Your mercy still prevails
Oh Lord, when will I learn
I still make the same mistakes but Your love for me still burns

I'm just a sinful man, why do You reach for me?
I still don't understand
what You see in me
Why was the blood of Jesus shed to set me free?
Why did He have to die, to save someone like me?

Oh, endless mercy x4

I don't understand His love for me
The way He came to rescue me
He died on a cross to set me free
Why would a King give all for me?

Oh, endless mercy x4
