Lyrics of the Heart

Well, it’s week two and you all made your picks!  Lets get right down to it… we’ve got a few ties to break again, so we’ll work on those today.

Again, we’ll go by lyrics to choose the best which describes who we are here, what we believe and how we interact…. Pick one from each set.

Here we go!

 

1st Set:

Lyrics #1

Here in this worn and weary land
Where many a dream has died
Like a tree planted by the water
We never will run dry
So living water flowing through
God we thirst for more of You
Fill our hearts and flood our souls
With one desire
Just to know You and yo make You known
We lift Your name on High

Lyrics #2

Unleash Your kingdom’s power
Reaching the near and far
No force of hell can stop
Your beauty changing hearts
You made us for much more than this
Awake the kingdom seed in us
Fill us with the strength and love of Christ
We are Your church
Oh, and we are the hope
On earth

Lyrics #3

You are not alone, if you are lonely
When you feeling frail, you’re not the only
We are all the same, in need of mercy, to be forgiven and be free
It’s all you got to lean on but thank God it’s all you need
And all the people said Amen

Lyrics #4

If I told you my story
You would hear Hope that wouldn’t let go
And if I told you my story
You would hear Love that never gave up
And if I told you my story
You would hear Life, but it wasn’t mine
If I should speak then let it be
Of the grace that is greater than all my sin
Of when justice was served and where mercy wins
Of the kindness of Jesus that draws me in
Oh to tell you my story is to tell of Him

2nd Set:

Lyrics #5

All my life I have been called unworthy
Named by the voice of my shame and regret
But when I hear You whisper, “Child lift up your head”
I remember oh God, You’re not done with me yet
I am redeemed, You set me free

Lyrics #6

Where there’s hurting
You show me what healing can do
Where there’s hatred
You show me how kindness can move
Where there’s fear deep inside
I won’t run, I won’t hide
I’ll give you all of me
So that you can see
Every broken piece and open up my
Whole heart, whole heart
And love you with my
Whole heart, whole heart

Lyrics #7

So many questions, the world is reaching
So many hurting, so many lost
With all this thriving, who can we lean on?
Creations crying, out from the dark
I know the answer, to every question
The one solution, to every fear
I know my helper, where it comes from
Jesus, He is the answer

3rd Set:

Lyrics #8

I am a poor wayfaring stranger
Traveling through this world of woe
Yet there’s no sickness, no toil or danger
In that bright world to which I go
I’m going there to see my father
I’m going there no more to roam
I’m only going over to Jordan
I’m only going over home
Yes, Lord

Lyrics #9

Now I have resurrection power
Living on the inside
Now, I’m no longer bound by sin and darkness
Living in the light of Your goodness
You have given us freedom!
Now I have resurrection power
Living on the inside
Jesus, You have given us freedom
Now, I’m no longer bound by sin and darkness
Living in the light of Your goodness
You have given us freedom!

Lyrics #10

Am I proof
That You are who you say You are
That grace can really change a heart
Do I live like Your love is true
People pass
And even if they don’t know my name
Is there evidence that I’ve been changed
When they see me, do they see You
I want to live like that
And give it all I have
So that everything I say and do
Points to You
If love is who I am
Then this is where I’ll stand
Recklessly abandoned
Never holding back
