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
