A Thousand Amens

From worthless things I will turn my eyes

And I will confess my sins

Your testimonies make me wise

As I offer up a thousand amens


A thousand amens I will voice

A thousand amens as I rejoice

We have heard  The more sure word

Which shall forever stand 


I will praise you with an upright heart

When I learn your righteous rules 

From your precepts I will not depart

I will flee the way of fools


With your Word Lord, I will guard my way

And it will keep my whole life pure

Your Word I have hidden in my heart today

For it is steadfast as it’s sure


A thousand amens I will voice

A thousand amens as I rejoice

We have heard  The more sure word

Which shall forever stand 


Bridge: Sweeter than the honey in the honeycomb

This is the saving source of true shalom

Your word is a lamp and a light

In it we will delight

And it will show us the way home


A thousand amens I will voice

A thousand amens as I rejoice

We have heard  The more sure word

Which shall forever stand 


A thousand amens I will voice

A thousand amens as I rejoice

We have heard  The more sure word

Which shall forever stand

Walking into Love

Start the journey, travel on

Up around the bend there’s another song

Don’t you mind the detours, son

With four rights you can’t go wrong


So turn, turn and you might return

This cycle you cannot resist

Changing key  to ones unlearned

Like a holy circle of fifths


So start the journey take the first steps

One foot in front of the other is enough

For all the rights you gave up others you have kept

On this sojourn the destination’s up above

Just keep walking, you’ll be walking into love


Keep on keeping on is what they say

Don’t look back, and don’t hesitate

You might find that there is no better way

Cause this road is narrow but it’s straight


So start the journey take the first steps

One foot in front of the other is enough

For all the rights you gave up others you have kept

On this sojourn the destination’s up above

Just keep walking, you’ll be walking into love

Holiness



Forgiveness is what you gave  When I repented

You saved me from the grave Then I relented

Now beyond forgiveness I would move

Work holiness in me now to prove

The work you’ve done in me

To set this captive free


Set me apart Lord Purify my heart Lord

As holiness I pursue Make me more and more like You

If in Christ Jesus I have died In Him I will be sanctified…


Without this I will not be blessed

Holiness, holiness

Without this I will not see

My God in all His great glory

So lead me there, 

Holy Spirit, Lead me there

To the place where I will be

Holy, holy, holy…


Set me apart Lord Purify my heart Lord

As holiness I pursue Make me more and more like You

If in Christ Jesus I have died In Him I will be sanctified…


Without this I will not be blessed

Holiness, holiness

Without this I will not see

My God in all His great glory

So lead me there, 

Holy Spirit, Lead me there

To the place where I will be

Holy, holy, holy…

When the Bottom Drops Out


There are many dangers ahead-that we all know

Many toils and snares here below

The storm of desire casts us all about

But where do you go when the bottom drops out?


You make all your plans and you build up your walls

Life in the bubble isn’t real life at all

The road you are running has no alternate route

So where do you go when the bottom drops out?


You look up through the bottom and there you will see

A hope that is sure and a grace that is free


All your desires and all of your dreams

Have made you a slave  and their servant it seems

But the hunger still burns and you’re drowning in doubt

Where do you go when the bottom drops out?


You look up through the bottom and there you will see

A hope that is sure and a grace that is free

You look up through the bottom and there you will see

A hope that is sure and a grace that is free

Route


Sinkiller Kill My Sin


My deeds that are dark

I wouldn’t want to be seen

In the light of the day

I think you know what I mean

The mind is a battleground

But this is the truth I’ve found

It really is insane to not come clean


Cause what looked like pleasure

The pleasure it gave

Was no sort of treasure

It seeks to enslave 

If I will just reckon 

The reality

That when it beckons

I can turn and flee


Sinkiller, kill my sin

This is a battle that I can’t win

But you have overcome the world

And what’s impossible for me

You will put my sin to death

And give the victory


Everyone of us falls short

Of God’s glory each day

If we stand in this world’s court

We’ve each gone our own way

But there is a way home

And the way is not our own

And the cost is not ours to pay


Sinkiller, kill my sin

This is a battle that I can’t win

But you have overcome the world

And what’s impossible for me

You will put my sin to death

And give the victory

This is what the Lord says: I will be with you

I’ll never forsake you I’ll never leave you

This is what the Lord says You can trust in Me

This is what the Lord says My power’s for the weak


This is what the Lord says The battle has been won

This is what the Lord says It’s all said and done

This is what the Lord says You have heard my Word

This is what the Lord says Now act on what you’ve heard


Be Strong and Take Courage

Be Strong and Take Courage


Bridge

You have gone before us

With all my heavenly hosts

You have gone before us

So in Your might we boast


This is what the Lord says If you will trust in me

I will go before you  And will give the victory

So we will don Your  armor  The shield,  and belt, and sword 

Your helmet, shoes, and breastplate And the battle is the Lord’s


Be Strong and Take Courage

Be Strong and Take Courage

Be Strong and Take Courage

The Joy of the Lord is My Stronghold

May your Glory be my gladness

As You work my joy from sadness

This is part of your design

It will be an everlasting sign.

So may my joy be found in You

And shine forth in all I do

So for the Lord to make a name

His reputation  is my aim.


For the joy of the Lord is my stronghold

From His presence I will draw my strength 

I rejoice as His mighty works I behold

Till every soul shall Know His name at length


You are the fortress where I rest

The refuge where I am blessed

The power and glory I shall sing

As I abide beneath your wing

Turn our mourning into a dance 

As we see you in each circumstance

Then it will be understood

You work all things for our good


For the joy of the Lord is my stronghold

From His presence I will draw my strength 

I rejoice as His mighty works I behold

Till every soul shall Know His name at length

Lead Me Guide Me

Lead me guide me

You are here inside me

Under your wings hide me Lord

Grow me, show me

Only you can know me

With your grace oer’flow me Lord


You met me despite what I’d done

In spite of what I’ve been

You change me to look like your son 

And save me from my sin

Now with new eyes I clearly see

That’s the way I was meant to be


Mold me, enfold me

In your bosom hold me

Of your love You’ve told me Lord

Take me, break me

With your wonder shake me

From my slumber wake me Lord


You met me despite what I’d done

In spite of what I’ve been

You change me to look like your son 

And save me from my sin

Now with new eyes I clearly see

That’s the way I was meant to be


Lead me guide me

You are here inside me

Under your wings hide me Lord

Under your wings hide me Lord

Yield Not

Yield not, yield not to temptation

Yield not for yielding is Sin

Yield instead your will and be led

By the Spirit of the Lord Who lives within…


Yield not , Yield not to the culture

Yield not to the spirit of the age

Be conformed to the likeness of your Lord

He will be your joy while the nations rage


He will be your strength and shield

If your passions you will yield

He will be your power when you are weak

If His Lordship You will seek.


Yield not, yield not to the devil

Resist Him and you will see him flee

When he has heard you uttering God’s Word

For in Jesus you will have the victory

For in Jesus you will have the victory

For in Jesus you will have the victory

Oh Lord my God


Oh Lord my God, my Savior, King

My confidence,  to You I cling


My Prince of Peace, my All in All

My Counselor On You I call


You are my refuge Oh Three in One

You are my Rest, In You I’m blessed

To You I run.


Oh Everlasting Father, Immortal Son

Eternal Spirit, To You I come


Oh Lord my God, my Savior, King

My confidence, of Thee I sing.


You are my refuge Oh Three in One

You are my Rest, In You I’m blessed

To You I run.

Gospel Waters

For the sinsick soul, there’s a river 

Flowing down from Heaven’s throne

Gospel waters ever living

Streams of mercy are forgiving

Every sin that I have ever known


Baptize me within that river

Plunge me deep, there I would go

There You’ll wash away my Sin, 

Make me an old sinner has-been

For that River’s where the cleansing waters flow


Take me down (down down) to the river

Take me down (down down) and drown my Sin

Take me down (down down) to the river

In that Gospel water I’ll begin again.


Baptize me within that river

Plunge me deep- I’m born again

Gospel Waters wash and cleanse me

For to heaven Jesus sends me

Purify me on that road now I begin


Take me down to the river

Sink me in its undertow

Lord then grab me up and raise me

By your mercy you amaze me

But why you rescued me I’ll never know


Take me down (down down) to the river

Take me down (down down) and drown my Sin

Take me down (down down) to the river

In that Gospel water I’ll begin again.
