I know that look in your eyes
A heart of stone lays inside
He has left you alone once more
And to love you've closed the door

And you with your head down low
Lost the dreams you'd once known
Never once felt you were good enough
You never seemed to measure up

Chorus
There's no wound that's too deep
Not one tear falls beneath
The grasp of Heaven's arms
You may fight, you may run
Bury what has been done
And think it's out of reach
But there's no wound
No wound too deep

An there is the haunted sould
The past you just can't let go
It keeps robbin' and stealin' you blind
Of all the joy you've tried to find

Chorus  X2

I used to sing with an empty phrase
No hope in the words I'd say
You put Your heart inside of mine
Took my song and made it thine

Now I'm filled with a love so sweet
Bitterness has found defeat
I find the blessings in the rain
I lay me down, and give You thanks

Chorus
And I sing Hallelujah Lord
When this world keeps trying to break me down
You raise me up, You give me life
And I'm singing Hallelujah to You, day and night

When defeats knocking at my door
And darkness calls to me once more
I sing Your praise, I say Your name
My spirit rides upon Your wings

Chorus

As this life comes to an end
And I think about who I've been
The only prize that I will claim
Is when Amazing love, it called my name
Amazing love, it callede my name

Chorus

Tag:
I'm singing Hallelujah to you,  day and night

From a distance I may look together
While my heart may be torn in two
Unshaken I appear
Speak the words you need to hear
But inside

I am wrestling with the demons
The same demons that torment you
They want to tear this temple down
Try to wear the victory crown
In my life

Chorus
(But) My God is strong
Won the fight at the cross
Conquered the cold grave
And rose above
My God is strong
He's the life in my song
And whispers into my ear
Dear child hang on
When your weak, I'm strong

Every time my world starts to crumble
I take refuge beneath His wings
The strength you see in me
Is the Spirit of the King
Carrying on

Chorus  X2

Tag:
Oh, my God is strong
Strong, strong, strong
Strong, strong, strong

X marks the spot, yeah it hit you where it hurt
You gave up on the world drew a line in the dirt
And it takes a lot of guts after everything you lost
To walk a shaky bridge that you don't wanna cross

Chorus
(But) It's a starting place to a resurrection
It's a baby step in the right direction
Why do you keep on fighting
Tryin' to make it on your own
When love wants to bring you home - bring you home

You waited out the storm watching through your window
You tried to play it safe but there won't be a bluer sky
You've already felt the pain so what are you so afraid of
Unhinge the latches and let in a little light

Chorus
It's a starting place to a resurrection
It's a baby step in the right direction
Why do you keep on fighting tryin' to make it on your own
When love wants to bring you home

It's a starting place
Starting place

Chorus
It's a starting place to a resurrection
It's a baby step in the right direction
Why do you keep on fighting trying to make it on your own
When love wants to bring you home - bring you home

It's a starting place
Starting place
It's a starting place
Starting place

I have questioned, I have thought
How could God love me still?
When I do life my own way
And wrestle with His will

But comfort comes from my God and King
Whose Word speaks to my soul
Remindsme of His unfailing love
That'll never let me go

Chorus
Oh, nothing can separate me
No, nothing can separate me
From the love of God through Christ
At Calvary

The devil roams here to and fro
he's lookin' to destroy
Persecution, stress and pain
Has poured out on my joy

But in the hand of God I'm held
I can't be torn away
Not death, nor life
Angels, power nor might
Can pull me from His grace

Chorus

Bridge
What can wash away my sin
Nothing but the blood of Jesus
What can make me whole again
Nothing but the blood of Jesus  (X2)

I thank God for the love of Christ at Calvary,  Calvary

Tag:
Nothing can separate me from, from the love of Jesus
(Nothing can separate me, no)
Nothing can separate me from,   oh
(From the love the love of Jesus)

It lies in wait for my weakness
Just under the surface where no one sees
When I think I've got it beaten
I fall back (to) the sinner I so don't wanna be
You always know where to find me
right here broken down on my knees

Chorus
Lord, will you take away the things
That take me away from you
Make me the woman you know I can be
Let the world see You in me
Do what only You can do
And take the things that take me away from You

Like rides on the devil's playground
I'm ushered in by lies and deceit
Each time I stumble You life me
Dust me off and put me back on my feet
I pray my faith to be stronger
I don't want this shame any longer

Chorus

Bridge
There's no excuse for my past
And I have no right to ask
But, please God please
Don't turn away from me
Don't give up on me

Chorus

Please take the things, that take me away
From You                                                                                                                    



Well Run Dry

On the first day of seventh grade
She sat alone out by the wall
All the other kids are lookin' and laughin'
But she sits and pretends she doesn't care at all
She came home from school that day in tears
She said, I don't want to go through another year

Chorus
She's lookin' down a well run dry
And there's an emptiness behind her eyes
'Cause she's learned there's no use to try
To draw water from a well run dry

On the fifth floor maternity ward
She satalone and faced the wall
Missin' a boy who should've been with her
And a mom and dad who won't return her call
She curled up in the bed there by the phone
She said I don't think I can do this all alone

Chorus

At the third street community church
She sat alone and faced the cross
God, she said, today was a rough one
And you know I'm not dealing very well with the loss
Only you can know how I miss my boy
God please be my strength and be my joy

Bridge
Lord, here I stand today by the wellspring of Your love
It's stretchin' out as far as I can see
God please help me to give someone
The gift You've given to me

'Cause You're the water when the well runs dry
You're the happiness,  You're my peace of mine
And I've learned where to go to find
Water when the well runs dry

You're my water when the well runs dry

I've been down,  I've been broken,  I've seen lonely a time or two
Face the dark side, wrestled demons
Til' there was nothin' else to do,  but cry
Yeah and wonder why
It was hard to keep the faith when I was in the middle of all the pain
I had to find the strength to get up off my knees and start again

Chorus
I've seen the dark clouds,  I've felt the rain
And I've had to fight through the cold winds of change
There's no way to see the brighter days and the good yet to come
But I can feel it now I'm standing
In the light of Your love
The light of Your love

No more shadows, no more questions
Everything is crystal clear
Now I feel Your love shining on me
And I know just why I'm here
And I,  I no longer cry
It's like every trail of tears I walked was just what I had to do
And every storm I lived through was the only way to get to You

Chorus
I've seen the dark clouds, I've felt the pain
And I've had to fight through the cold winds of change
There's no way to see the brighter days and the good yet to come
But I can feel it now I'm standing
In the light of Your love

Bridge
Now I finally understand
That it's outta my hands
God always has anotyer plan

Outro
There's no way to see the brighter days and the good yet to come
But I can feel it
Yeah, I can see it
Yeah, I believe it
That I'm standing in the light of Your love
The light of Your love

She wasn't ready for the news he gave
The doctor said a baby's on the way
All her fears started comin' true
She ran to tell the boy who loved her so
He just shook his head and said, no, there's no way
If you keep it I will go

But in the midst of his cold words
A voice rose up in her

Chorus
Said I'm fearfully, wonderfully make
How could I ever say
This life inside me is not the same
Fearfully, wonderfully made
Why should the innocent pay
For the choices that we've made
We're all fearfully,  wonderfully made

It seems like no one would stand by her side
So she fell down on her kness  and cried
Dear Lord, this is more than I can take
I know that I have cause this mess
Through my choices and my disrespect
But dear God,  will You help me see this through

And on the day that child was born
With that baby in her arms

Chorus
I'm fearfully, wonderfully made
How could I ever say that this child is not the same
Fearfully, wonderfully made
We're all precious in Gods sight
And His love will make things right
We're all fearfully, wonderfully made

I'm fearfully, wonderfully made
How could I ever say that my child is not the same
Fearfully, wonderfully made
We're all precious in Gods sight
And His love can make things right
We're all fearfully, wonderfully made
We're all fearfully, wonderfully made

Fearfully, wonderfully made (X2)
Yes, we are

Hope is a flame burnin' in the night
Shinin' through the dark and the wind and the rain
Hope is a flame

Hope is a seed planted in the spring
For the beauty it will bring and the family it will feed
Hope is a seed

Chorus
And when the darkness covers us over
When we're tryin' to make it to the dawn
Hope is a voice callin' out to the hurtin'
Saying hold on, hold on

Hope is a child sleeping on your shoulder
Knowing when they are older you'll live on in their smile
Hope is a child

Hope is a dream showin' us the way
From where we are today to where we long to be
Hope is a dream

Chorus

I LoveTo Tell The Story
Katherine Hanky / William G. Fishcer
Pub. 1869. Public Domain

I love to tell the story
Of unseen things above
Of Jesus and His glory
Of Jesus and His love
I love to tell the story
Because I know it's true
It satisfies my longing
As nothing elsecan do

Chorus
I love to tell the story
'Twill be my theme in glory
To tell the old, old story
Of Jesus and His love

I love to tell the story
'Tis pleasant to repeat
What seems , each time I tell it
More wonderfully sweet
I love to tell the story
For some have never heard
The message of salvation
From Gods own Holy Word

Chorus
I love to tell the story
'Twill be my theme in glory
To tell the old, old story
Of Jesus and His love

I love to tell the story
'Twill be my theme in glory
To tell the old, old story
Of Jesus, of Jesus, of Jesus, oh my Jesus
To tell the old, old story
Of Jesus and His love
Oh, my Jesus and His love

Oh, yeah
Of Jesus, of Jesus, of Jesus
Oh, my Jesus
