"East to West"


Here I am lord and I'm drowning In your sea of forgetfulness The chains of yesterday surround me I yearn for peace and rest I don't want to end up where you found me And it echoes in my mind Keeps me awake tonight

I know you've cast my sin as far As the east is from the west And I stand before you now As though I've never sinned But today I feel like I'm just one mistake away From you leaving me this way


Jesus, can you show me just how far the east is from the west? Cause I can't bear to see the man I've been Rising up in me again In the arms of your mercy I find rest You know just how far the east is from the west From one scarred hand to the other

I start the day, the war begins Endless reminding of my sin And time and time again Your truth is drowned out by the storm I'm in Today I feel like I'm just one mistake away From you leaving me this way


Jesus, can you show me just how far the east is from the west? Cause I can't bear to see the man I've been Rising up in me again In the arms of your mercy I find rest You know just how far the east is from the west From one scarred hand to the other

I know you've washed me white Turned my darkness into light I need your peace to get me through To get me through this night

I can't live by what I feel About the truth your word reveals And I'm not holding onto you But you're holding onto me You're holding onto me


Jesus, can you show me just how far the east is from the west? Cause I can't bear to see the man I've been Rising up in me again In the arms of your mercy I find rest You know just how far the east is from the west From one scarred hand to the other

Just how far, the east is from the west, just how far From one scarred hand to the other You know just how far, the east is from the west, just how far From one scarred hand to the other

"Gracefully Broken"


Take all I have in these hands And multiply, God, all that I am And find my heart on

the altar again Set me on fire, set me on fire

Oh, take all I have in these hands And multiply, God, all that I am And find my heart on the altar again Set me on fire, set me on fire

Here I am, God Arms wide open Pouring out my life Gracefully broken

My heart stands in awe of Your name Your mighty love stands strong to the end You will fulfill Your purpose for me You won't forsake me, You will be with me

Here I am, God Arms wide open Pouring out my life Gracefully broken Pouring out my life again Here I am, God Arms wide open Pouring out my life Gracefully broken

Oh, gracefully

All to Jesus now All to Jesus now Holding nothing back Holding nothing back I surrender

Here I am, God Arms wide open (here I am, here I am) Pouring out my life Gracefully broken Here I am, God With my arms wide open (with my arms wide open) Pouring out my life Gracefully broken, oh

Your power at work in me I'm broken gracefully I'm strong when I am weak I will be free

Your power at work in me I'm broken gracefully (I'm broken gracefully) I'm strong when I am weak I will be free

Here I am, God Arms wide open Pouring out my life Gracefully broken

"Set Me Free"


It hasn’t always been this way

I remember brighter days

Before the dark ones came

Stole my mind

Wrapped my soul in chains

Now I live among the dead

Fighting voices in my head

Hoping someone hears me crying in the night

And carries me away

Set me free of the chains holding me

Is anybody out there hearing me?

Set me free

Morning breaks another day

Finds me crying in the rain

All alone with my demons I am

Who is this man that comes my way?

The dark ones shriek

They scream His name

Is this the One they say will set the captives free?

Jesus, rescue me

Set me free of the chains holding me

Is anybody out there hearing me?

Set me free

As the God man passes by

He looks straight through my eyes

And darkness cannot hide

Do you want to be free?

Lift your chains

I hold the key

All power on Heaven and Earth belong to me

You are free

We are free

Jesus set us free

"Ceasefire"


How do we save a life pointing fingers? How can we end the fight this way? When blame is the truth we're preaching? And lies are what we're believing? No one ever wins when the goal is to settle the score

One by one we will call for a ceasefire One by one we will fight for a better end One by one we could rewrite the headlines Standing side by side

One by one, love is building an empire One by one, reaching out to our enemies One by one we will make it to the finish line Standing side by side Ceasefire

I will be the first to say I'm far from perfect But grace was made for those who don't deserve it So easy to cast the first stone It's harder to search your own soul No one ever wins When the goal is to settle the score One by one we will call for a ceasefire One by one we will fight for a better end One by one we could rewrite the headlines Standing side by side One by one, love is building an empire One by one, reaching out to our enemies One by one we will make it to the finish line Standing side by side Ceasefire

Teach us how to live humbly, love unconditionally Transform our hurt into hope Grant us Your peace Teach us how to live humbly, love unconditionally Transform our hurt into hope Grant us Your peace One by one we will call for a ceasefire One by one we will fight for a better end One by one we could rewrite the headlines We're standing side by side One by one, love is building an empire One by one, reaching out to our enemies One by one we will make it to the finish line Standing side by side Ceasefire

"Take Courage"


Slow down, take time "Breathe in," He said He'd reveal what's to come The thoughts in His mind Always higher than mine He'll reveal all to come So take courage my heart Stay steadfast my soul He's in the waiting He's in the waiting And hold onto your hope As your triumph unfolds He's never failing He's never failing

Sing praise my soul Find strength in joy Let His words lead you on Do not forget His great faithfulness He'll finish all He's begun

So take courage my heart Stay steadfast my soul He's in the waiting He's in the waiting And hold onto your hope As your triumph unfolds He's never failing He's never failing

So take courage my heart Stay steadfast my soul He's in the waiting He's in the waiting And hold onto your hope As your triumph unfolds He's never failing He's never failing And You who hold the stars Who call them each by name Will surely keep Your promise to me That I will rise in Your victory And You who hold the stars Who call them each by name Will surely keep Your promise to me That I will rise in Your victory! So take courage my heart Stay steadfast my soul He's in the waiting He's in the waiting And hold onto your hope Watch your triumph unfold He's never failing He's never failing He's in the waiting He's in the waiting He's in the waiting

"Known" Songwriters: Ethan Hulse,Jordan Sapp,Tauren Wells


It's so unusual it's frightening You see right through the mess inside me And you call me out to pull me in You tell me I can start again And I don't need to keep on hiding

I'm fully known and loved by You You won't let go no matter what I do And it's not one or the other It's hard truth and ridiculous grace! To be known, fully known and loved by You I'm fully known and loved by You

It's so like You to keep pursuing It's so like me to go astray, ooh But You guard my heart with Your truth The kind of love that's bullet proof And I surrender to Your kindness, oh

I'm fully known and loved by You You won't let go no matter what I do And it's not one or the other It's hard truth and ridiculous grace To be known fully known and loved by You I'm fully known and loved by You

How real, how wide How rich, how high is Your heart I cannot find the reasons why You give me so much How real, how wide How rich, how high is Your heart Now, I cannot find the reasons why You give me so much

I'm fully known (fully known) and loved by You You won't let go (no you won't let go) no matter what I do And it's not one or the other It's hard truth and ridiculous grace To be known fully known and loved by You I'm fully known and loved by You

It's so unusual it's frightening I'm fully known and loved by You

"So Will I (100 Billion X)" Songwriters: Joel Houston,Benjamin Hastings,Michael Fatkin


God of creation

There at the start Before the beginning of time With no point of reference You spoke to the dark And fleshed out the wonder of light

And as You speak A hundred billion galaxies are born In the vapor of Your breath the planets form If the stars were made to worship so will I I can see Your heart in everything You’ve made Every burning star A signifier of Grace If creation sings Your praises so will I

God of Your promise You don’t speak in vain No syllable empty or void For once You have spoken All nature and science Follow the sound of Your voice

And as You speak A hundred billion creatures catch Your breath Evolving in pursuit of what You said If it all reveals Your nature so will I I can see Your heart in everything You say Every painted sky A canvas of Your grace If creation still obeys You so will I So will I


If the stars were made to worship so will I If the mountains bow in reverence so will I If the oceans roar Your greatness so will I For if everything exists to lift You high so will I If the wind goes where You send it so will I If the rocks cry out in silence so will I If the sum of all our praises still falls shy Then we’ll sing again a hundred billion times

God of salvation You chased down my heart Through all of my failure and pride On a hill You created The light of the world Abandoned in darkness to die

And as You speak A hundred billion failures disappear When You lost Your life so I could find it here If You left the grave behind You so will I I can see Your heart in everything You’ve done Every part designed in a work of art called love If You gladly chose surrender so will I!

I can see Your heart A billion different ways Every precious one A child You died to save If You gave Your life to love them so will I

Like You would again a hundred billion times But what measure could amount to Your desire?

You’re the One who never leaves the one behind
