Holy Party 04:33
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
2.
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

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

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
5.
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!

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

Soldiers 04:26
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

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

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 x4

Even So 03:14
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
11.
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

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
