Songs from SANCTUARY

ONE KING, ONE KINGDOM
1. One King one Kingdom, Jesus our freedom
Oh Messiah, lift you higher and higher, Messiah
You’re the Power, and the Glory
The Saviour in our life’s story
You’re the Captain of the Nations, ruler in glory….

CHORUS:
You’re the soon returning King
So your majesty we sing
You’re the Lord, You’re the Lord!
You’re the Passover Lamb
And to you we raise our hands
You’re the Lord, You’re the Lord!

2. You’re our Refuge and our Healer
You’re our Ruler and our Repealer
You’re the Stream in the Desert
The Comfort in a Storm.
You’re the Alpha and Omega
Our Redeemer and our Maker
You’re the Bright Morning Star, Yeshua

JERUSALEM Ps 30, 122
CHORUS
You’ve turned my mourning into joyful dancing
You’ve turned my mourning into joyful dancing

1. That I may sing praises to you
and not be silent.. sing praises to you
And give thanks to you forever, forever
Oh my Lord my God

2. Sing to the Lord you Saints of His
And praise His holy name
For His anger lasts a moment
And His favour lasts a lifetime
Praise His holy name

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem
May those who love you prosper
May there be peace inside your walls
For the sake of the House of the Lord

In beautiful order and harmony
This is where the tribes come up
To give thanks to the Lord

JESUS IS THE ONLY WAY
CHORUS
Jesus is the only way
He’s the One who’s paid the price
Jesus is the only way, He’s the Living Sacrifice

1. Jesus took our weary burdens
And cast them into the sea
Jesus let His body be broken
To let the broken be free

2. Jesus your Holy Spirit
Will lead at every turn
Jesus we’ll follow Your leading
We’ll let our old lives burn

SAFE IN THE ARMS OF JESUS
CHORUS
Safe safe in the arms of Jesus
Ooh safe in his everlasting arms

1. No matter what the pain
No matter what the cost
No matter what’s been won
Or the feelings that you’ve lost
No matter where you’ve been
No matter what the sin
No matter how lonely
His love will see you through

2. No matter what you’ve done
No matter what went wrong
No matter you fell short
You never did belong
No matter how you’ve cried
No matter who has died
No matter how you hurt
His love will see you through

BRIDGE
The Saviour reaches down now
Holds you in his palm now
He picks you up so lightly
And nestles you in the cradle of his arm

SURRENDER
CHORUS
Lift up your hands to the Son
Surrender yourself in praise
For what the God of all mercy has done
Is to cover you with grace always

1. As the sap surrenders to the flow in the branches
The vine is renewed and brings forth its fruit
As the vine surrenders its branches to the sunlight
The fruit is ripened and ready to eat

2. And as you surrender to the will of your Father
He can guide you throughout your life
And as you surrender to the will of no other
He can renew you like a vine bearing fruit

BRIDGE
And as you are filled by the Spirit in power
The Lord’s perfect will is revealed in your life
As the Spirit leads you hour by hour
The Lord’s perfect will becomes plain as day

WHO AM I?
I sit in your presence Lord
I come to worship you alone
I bring you all I am and all that I am not
And I worship at your throne

I’ve been the prodigal
I’ve been through endless fire
And suffered the affliction
Of following my own way
I’ve felt the countless loss
I’ve seen the passing years
The folly of my selfishness leads me just to say
Who am I? Who am I?
Who am I Lord? Who am I Lord?

‘You’re my child and I love you
I want the best for you
I’ve got a plan for your life
I’ve seen all you’ve been thru, I bind up your wounds
I love you, let me now heal your heart
In my presence is fullness of joy
In my presence is fullness of joy
In my presence I will heal your heart
Come into my presence, there’s fullness of joy’

IN YOUR PRESENCE
CHORUS
I love to be in your presence Lord
Love to be in your presence Lord
I love to be with You

1. I love to be in your presence
Love to feel you near
Love to have you holding me
To take away my fear, my fear

2. I love to be in your presence
In your presence I am whole
In your presence I am healed
Time suspends, & the world dissolves

BRIDGE
Wrap me, enfold me, cradle me, hold me
Fill me, heal me, still me, embolden me
In your lovely presence..
In your awesome presence..

GREAT AND MARVELOUS
Rev 15
Great and marvelous are your deeds
Lord God Almighty

RIDER ON THE WHITE HORSE
CHORUS
King of Kings, Lord of Lords
He’s the Rider on the White Horse
King of Kings, Lord of Lords
He’s the Rider on the White Horse

1. I saw heaven standing open
And there before me was a white horse
Whose rider is called Faithful and True
With justice he judges and makes war

2. His eyes are like blazing fire
And on his head are many crowns
He has a name written on him
That no one but he himself knows

3. He’s dressed in a robe dipped in blood
And his name is the Word of God

4. The armies of heaven were following him
Riding on white horses and dressed
In fine linen, white and clean
Out of his mouth comes a sharp sword
With which to strike down the nations
He’ll rule them with an iron sceptre
He treads the winepress of the fury
Of the wrath of God Almighty
On his robe and on his thigh He has this name written..

CODA
I exalt you, I proclaim you, I lift you high
I look for your return

Songs from CATACLYSM

EXILE
A stranger in a strange land
An exile in my own country
A vagabond of dubious means
A banished scholar unequal to the task
A bandit hunted and hounded

A fragile warrior of hope
Lambasted in the courtyards
Scorned and hanged by a rope..
A ruined sunset of derision
A fallen catastrophe of lies
A nest of inferiority and failure
A straight jacket that binds

Oh and what will you do with me?
If I dont fit your mould
Will you pour on me expectation
Will you despise the old?
But the decrepit have the final say
Cos God champions the lost
Your forefathers disobedience
And its impossible to count the cost

A spider web of indecision
Just spreads across my face
Timeless lack of motivation
Emotions sunk without a trace
One last futile condemnation
At the churchs poverty of love
Brings a wall of defeated purpose
That the blinded wont discover

And the scars upon my face
Reveal the bitter pain
Born of miscommunication
The family fractures once again

BROKEN
No one told me, life would be this hard
Is there some greater reason for pain and loss
No one told me, life would be unkind
Is there some greater reason for grief and loss
Oh Lord, hear my cry
Oh Lord, please hear my cry
My heart is hurting, my life is so much history
My eyes are flooding, my life is just a mystery.. to me

No one told me, that they loved me
Is there some greater reason they didnt speak
My daddy never told me, that he loved me
Was there some greater reason, he could not speak
Oh Lord, speak to me
Oh Lord, please speak to me
My heart is hurting, my hopes lie in shreds
My mind in darkness, my dreams are all dead.. to me

When you pass through the valley of the shadow of death
When you
re in that deep deep valley of indecision
Each trial you face, an opportunity to trust
Each trial an opportunity to see My reason
Oh Lord, help me to see
Oh Lord, help me see Your reason
My heart is humbled, I fall on my face
My will dumbfounded, I receive your grace to me

No one told me, Jesus loves me
When I first heard, I was twenty three
All those long years, without a Saviour
Without the knowledge of who died for me
Oh Lord, I see Your face
Oh Lord, I see Your beautiful face
My heart is broken, I fall in my place
My will is vanquished, I stand in Your grace.. to me
Amazing grace how sweet the sound..

MASKS
I wear a mask to protect me
from the guilt of a failed life
With nails through my ambitions
With blankets on my emotions
With clamps on my expectations
And somethings strangling my voice….
I wear a mask to protect me
From the guilt of a failed life

I weigh in at the battle with odds a zillion to one
Whys it so very hard to be me
Is it something Ive done?
Fear clings like a night gone wrong
Emotional crises wreck my song
The wind howls like raging animal
And some animal is strangling my voice.
I weigh in at the battle with odds a zillion to one

Im a wreck of a man defeated by defeat
Depressed by depression, cheated by a cheat
Sentenced to a life of gloominess
When victory was the need
The flag wavers lost direction
And someones strangling my voice.
Im a wreck of a man defeated by defeat

What hope is there now for me
When angels of light file past
When we should have been the very first one
And the Taxman says…. Im last
I wear a mask to protect me
From the guilt of a failed life

The Lord says:
Take off your mask in a quiet place
Give Me your naked emotions
Give Me the skin on your face
Give Me the pain you see in the mirror
When you
’re fragile and thin
Take off your mask, let Me help you in


Open your heart to Me in my presence
Be shattered like a broken pot
Everything that you are
Give Me all that you
re not
Life is worthless without Me
I
m the pearl of very great price
Can you see My big picture
Can you see My ultimate sacrifice?


So put on the garment of praise
Put on the ‘
face plate’ of Me
Bring every thought captive to My will
In my presence liberty
Let your crusty burnt out mask fall and die
Lift up your hands now in surrender
Let your new self be born again
As I touch your face so tender, so tenderly
by Jules Riding Copyright 2010 Elkanah Music www.julesriding.com


CRUCIFY
Coming to terms with anger
Is like dropping an egg on the pavement
Impossible to reclaim your position
What
s broken is broken, lost is lost
Impossible to reclaim your position
What
s spoken is spoken, lost is lost
And how would you re-construct?

Coming to terms with bitterness
Is a Mission Impossible
Cos no one wants to forgive
By holding on to it we think we have the power
But it has the power over us, power over us
How do you break its power?
Be a man, get on your knees and pray!

Scream at God your pain
But know He is the King of Forgiveness
Study the life of Jesus, see His pain
See how He forgave those who killed Him
Can you forgive those
Who hurt you or abused you?
If not, they will hurt and abuse your emotions for a lifetime

Hey hey this is a tough one
Cos no one wants to forgive
Cos it takes humility and none of us is humble
Thats why we wont forgive
We hold our unforgiveness like a crown
Till it poisons us with bitterness and we die

Dont die, crucify anger, learn to forgive x2
Dont die, crucify bitterness, choose to forgive x2
Forgive, forgive, forgive, forgive..

DARK SECRETS
Everyone has an angel in their past
Everyone has a demon
Everyone has a black spot against their name
When we wanted a clean report card
Everyone has told a lie
When truth was sorely needed
We slipped into a white lie
It became a nasty habit

We allowed our eyes a peek
When eyes could have been averted
Its You we did not seek
We listened to our own bad advice
The dark secret is something
Something were ashamed of
But by keeping it hidden it has power over us

By sailing too close to the wind
We compromised our faith
And a few years down the track
Were off the straight and narrow
The hidden secret is a cancer
It has power over us
The white lie is a giant of a master
That bites us in the buttock

A secret peek at that dark screen
Is a ravenous dragon
You think nobody sees you
But you are so mistaken
The shake hands with the devil
You get your fingers burned..

Everyone has an angel in their past
Everyone has a demon
Everyone has a black spot against their name
When we wanted a clean report card
Everyone has sworn a lie
When truth was sorely needed
We slipped into a white lie and it became
A nasty habit, a nasty habit, a dark secret

WOUNDED SPIRIT
What will become of me
My whole life has been shadowed and shaped
What will become of me
My whole life has been shadowed and shaped
By the pain of my youth
( By dysfunction in my youth)

What wounded spirit lies in the darkness
Weak, lonely, hounded
How on earth is it possible
To make sense of all this
When nothing makes sense
And Im filled with errant emotion
Dark pallid days

How come Ive made such mess of things
Wallowing in defeat
When Ive preached victory
The irony wont pass
Hypocrisy stares me in the face
My whole life passes in a blur.. of contradictions

The Psalmist is my friend
He seems to know my thoughts
Hes been there, done that, done that
The clamour of my mind
The tentacles of negativity
Who will free me from this self-inflicted prison
Who will bring release to my captive mind

LAST CHORUS
What has become of me
My whole life has been
Shadowed and shaped..
What has become of me
My whole life now shadowed and shaped..
In the shape of a cross..
In the shape of a cross..
by Jules Riding Copyright 2010 Elkanah Music www.julesriding.com

FORGIVE ME
Youve hurt me, and you dont even know it
Youve abused me, and you dont even care
Youve run rough shod over my feelings
Trampled right over me
Blasted me in your anger and condescension
Berated me beyond my comprehension
And youve hurt me, and you dont even care

And your selfishness overwhelms me
Your cold heart is an ice age
Im so dumbfounded I cant speak
So overwhelmed I cant look at your face
Your under my skin, youve invaded my space
But I will let you go, I will release you now
Even though you hurt me
And you dont even care

Theres poison inside my spirit
The poison of revenge and hate
But this poison it will poison me
Drain the life from me, drain the life from me
But I forgive you now, I release you now
Even though you dont deserve it
And you dont even care

Its impossible Lord, without your mercy Lord
Im broken Lord, in my uncontrolable rage
Cover my unforgiveness Lord
Take my hardened heart Lord
Guide these wooden footsteps
And blanket me with grace

You forgave me Lord, I didnt deserve it Lord
Yes, you loved me Lord, when I didnt care
On the cross Lord
Your blood flowed like a river Lord
Flowed like a river Lord
To break the unforgiveness snare

So forgive me Lord, I dont deserve it Lord
Please forgive me Lord, I didnt care..

CATACLYSM
Theres coming a time
When youll turn on your radio
And it wont work
Theres coming a time youll switch on your tv
And it wont feed you
A time unheralded in human history
When the nations will mourn
And not know what to do

Theres coming a time
Known only to the Father
When history stands still
And we look up in fear and wonder
Stars fall from the sky
Therell be angels in flight
As the Son of Man makes his entrance
From stage right

The politicians had their day
Liberals had their sway
As history unlearns at the dawn
Before Jesus Christ returns

Theres coming a time of cataclysm
We know nothing about
This upheaval is social, political and natural
Life as we know it, takes turn about
And the devastation
Is beyond our comprehension
That so many could die here, on Planet Earth

And its all in Gods hand
Part of his master plan
How could a loving God
Allow Planet Earth to burn..
Before Jesus Christ returns

2 Peter 3.9 says God is not willing that any should perish.
He wants everyone to turn to him, but who will turn to Him?
The wise, the humble, the courageous.. and the broken..

Theres coming a time
Not the end of the world but the end of the age
With business as usual
Everyone selling their wares
On the global stage
How can we prepare
As we face Judgement Day?
We can store up food, be self-sufficient
Get out of the city
Or we can pray, learn to pray..
by Jules Riding Copyright 2010 Elkanah Music www.julesriding.com

WILDERNESS (Psalm 63)
O God, you are my God
With my whole heart I search for you
My soul thirsts after you
My whole body longs for you
In this dry and weary land
Where there is no water..

I have seen you in your sanctuary
Gazed upon your power and your glory
Your unfailing love
Is better to me than life itself
How I praise you, how I praise you

I will honour you as long as I live
Lifting up my hands in prayer
You satisfy more than the richest of foods
How I praise you, how I praise you

I lie awake thinking of you
Meditating on you through the night
I think how much you have helped me
I sing for joy in the shelter of your wings

But those plotting to destroy me
Will go down to everlasting ruin
They will go into the depths of the earth
They will die by the sword..
And become food for jackals

FOLLOW THE LAMB
Take up your cross, follow the lamb
Put your hand in the Saviours hand
Reckon yourselves dead to sin
Take up your cross, let Him in
Follow the lamb

Our sin nailed Him to the Cross
Our sin guaranteed our loss
What kind of love is this that pays so dearly
That we the guilty ones.. may go free

The depth of Gods love is overwhelming
The Cross is historys greatest gift
The Saviour laid His life down sacrificially
Paid the price for our sin, that we might live..

Yield your will to the will of your Father
Yield your body to the flame of His holiness
Find yourself in Him, surrender all to Him
Surrender all and you will gain the Kingdom

‘I have been crucified with Christ
And I no longer live, but Christ lives in me
The life I live, I live by faith in the Son of God
Who loved me and gave himself for me’ Galatians 2.20

ALL IS WELL
If God means what He said
If Jesus rose up from the dead
He can surely lift my head, all is well
If I live to take this breath
If I learn to treasure what is left
If I live beyond the second death Rev 20.11-15
All is well

All is well, His return is near
All is well, He banishes fear
Can you see the vision clear, all is well
All is well, His return is close
Escorted by the heavenly host
I can see the vision uppermost, all is well

We’re given one life to live
One lifetime just to learn to give
Each day is such a precious gift, all is well
Your Spirit will console
Lord save my very mortal soul
For You are in control, all is well

LAST CHORUS
All is well, His return is close
Escorted by the heavenly host
I can see the vision uppermost….

CLOSER (dvd only)
Closer to the day of my death
Than the day of my birth x2
Closer to the bosom of God
Than the womb of the earth x2

Nearer to the one who really loves me
Stronger than death x2
Nearer to the one who will carry me
To my last breath x2

Place me like a seal over your heart,
like a seal on your arm. For love is as strong
as death, its jealousy unyielding as the grave.
It burns like blazing fire, like a mighty flame.
Song of Solomon 8.6

Closer to the day of my death than the day of my birth
Closer to the bosom of God than the womb of the earth
Nearer to the one who really loves me stronger than death
Nearer to the one who will carry me to my last breath

Closer to the day of my death
Than the day of my birth x2
Closer to Your heart Lord, closer to You x2
Closer to Your heart Lord, closer to You..

What Makes You A Christian?
Sitting in a garage doesn’t make you a car
Flying in a rocket doesn’t make you a star
Y’know it doesn’t matter whoever you are
Going to church
Doesn’t make you a.. (X) ..Christian

  1. Having Jesus in your heart
    Talking to Him each day
    Asking Him to guide you
    And help you to obey
    Reading His Word and following His ways
    That’s what makes you a.. (X) ..Christian
    Yes that’s what makes you a.. (X) ..Christian
  2. Talking like a parrot
    You can memorise a word
    Flapping your arms
    Will make you look like a bird
    But it doesn’t mean a thing
    You’ll only look absurd
    Going to church
    Doesn’t make you a.. (X) ..Christian

Bananas For The Lord

  1. He’s the peach of a Saviour
    He’s the apple of my eye
    He prunes away the branches
    When the branches get too high
    He bears fruit in season
    And His love will never die
    And that’s why I’m bananas for the LordGlory glory we’re the branches
    Glory glory we’re the branches
    Glory glory we’re the branches
    And that’s why I’m bananas for the Lord
  2. Now Jesus is the Saviour
    He’s the One who came to die
    He’s the One who lights my life
    I never have to lie
    He is the very reason
    And His love just makes me cry
    And that’s why I’m bananas for the Lord

Giantkiller

  1. Who’s that tiny little boy
    His tiny little sling looks just like a toy
    When all the blokes are looking coy
    His heart is strong with faith and joyGreat big giant standing tall
    The bigger they are the harder they fall
    Standing firm with your back to the wall
    You know whose name to call: JESUS!
  2. Come now Davey Boy, see what I bring
    Put on your armour said the King
    With all this junk I can’t move a thing
    All I want is my God and my slingCHORUS
  3. Look here Goliath you mound of muscle
    You’re just here to laugh and to hustle
    But I know if it comes to a tussle
    The Lord is with me I don’t have to bustleCHORUS
  4. So if you feel you have come to a crunch
    And one of your giants is gonna eat you for lunch
    Just when it looks like he’s going to munch
    Remember God and you are the invincible bunch

Jesus Reigns In Us

  1. As the rain falls down
    Bringing puddles to the ground
    Down it comes like showers
    Jesus pours his love into our hearts
    Into our hearts….
  2. It taps on our windows
    Washing them clean
    Just as we ask Jesus to forgive us
    When we’ve sinned, when we’ve sinnedJesus reigns in us, Jesus reigns in us
    Jesus reigns in us
    If we open our hearts to Him
    Jesus lives in us, Jesus lives in us
    Jesus lives in us
    If we give our lives to Him
  3. The rain helps the sun
    To make the garden grow
    Like we reap when we sow
    The sun comes out & dries up all the rain
    Leaving everything alive again, alive again

Stinky Sox, Stinky Sox
Under the bed or shoved in a box
You just can’t get away
From those Stinky Sox

    But now and again you sniff the air
    Then you find out how you care
    About those Stinky SoxCHORUS 1
  2. They’re sometimes so very easy to clean
    Other times they need a washing machine
    Try to hide the odour of Stinky Stinky SoxCHORUS 1

BRIDGE:
Sin is like my Stinky Sox
Hidden away so on one can see
But God can see my stinky sin
That’s why he sent Jesus for me

Let it out and let Jesus right in
He’s paid the price
For all our stinky sin x2

Love God First

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 X2
It’s good to be reminded, every now and again

  1. That God’s given us 10 Commandments
    And written them on our hearts
    You probably already know many of them
    But here is where you start:
    ONE you’ve gotta love God first
    Before anyone or anything else
    TWO don’t make any other gods
    Cos you can’t put God on a shelfMINI-CHORUS
    1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10
  2. THREE don’t use His name wrong
    To say a swear word or just for fun
    FOUR keep the seventh day just for Him
    So you can keep Him Number One
    FIVE give honour to Mum and Dad
    Obey them and you’ll live long (it’s a promise)
    SIX don’t kill anyone at all
    I’ll bet you knew that one was wrongMINI-CHORUS
    1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10
  3. SEVEN is committing adultery
    Acting married to someone you’re not
    EIGHT is stealing, you know that’s wrong
    To take something that you haven’t bought
    NINE is sometimes a difficult one
    Don’t ever lie but tell the truth
    TEN don’t desire what your neighbours got
    Be content with what God’s given youCHORUS

CODA:
You gotta love God first, love God first
Not 2nd, 3rd, 4th or 5th you gotta love God first
Now the others are important
But not as important as this:
You gotta love God first

Wakarimasita (Japanese)

Wakarimasita, wakarimasita ka
Wakarimasita, wakarimasita ka X2
I see, do you see?
I understand, do you understand?

1. Jesus came from heaven above
He came to show us that God is love
He came and died and rose again
If you want to get to know Him
You must be born again CHORUS

2. You can’t get to heaven by singing a song
You can’t get to heaven by trying to do no wrong
But if you ask Jesus to forgive your sin
You will get to heaven
And the party will beginCHORUS

Wakarimasita, Wakarimasita Ka is more than just a kids’ song. It’s about honouring the Japanese culture and sharing the gospel with friends. During 1997 when I returned to Auckland to finish my degree I met a group of Asian students who helped broaden my view of their culture. We did many things together, shared cultural meals went on holiday and just sat around and talked between classes. As most of the Kiwi friends were Christian, religion would often come up as a topic and we would discuss the traditions and fears of different types of religion verses the relationship that we can have with God through Jesus. A key phrase during this time became Wakarimashita, Wakarimashita Ka? As we would check for understanding and clarification about different issues. As a result of our friendships two of the students became Christians which was pretty awesome and hopefully they have been able to grow in their faith and influence their families and communities. The words Wakarimashita, Wakarimashita Ka were chosen for the chorus in memory of those friends. Bruce Jones

The Prodigal Bug

I’m a bug, a bug, a big green bug
With legs, legs, big hairy legs
Got a spike on my head and a sting in my base
And eyes that seem to say ‘Get off of my case
And get outta my face..’

I saw a caterpillar on a leaf today
Just chomping and chomping his life away
But he told me that Jesus was God’s only Son
And a butterfly is what he’d become, but..CHORUS

So I watched for a while, a thought came to me
When people look at me, is that all they see
I might look ugly but I’m soft within
And Jesus is the one who’ll take all my sinCHORUS

So I thought for a while, decided what to do
Jesus is the Man who can make me new
So I said to the Lord ‘Come into my heart’
Now I gotta new life, I can make a new startCHORUSLAST CHORUS:
Not just a bug, a bug, a big green bug
With legs, legs, big hairy legs
Got a spike on my head but a Brand New Heart
Cos Jesus gave me a Brand New Start
I said a Brand New Start

Songs from ‘JERUSALEM’

Safe Ps 31:6

Safe safe in the arms of Jesus
Ooh safe in his everlasting arms

No matter what the pain
No matter what the cost
No matter what’s been won
Or the feelings that you’ve lost
No matter where you’ve been
No matter what the sin
No matter how lonely
His love will see you through

No matter what you’ve done
No matter what went wrong
No matter you fell short
You never did belong
No matter how you’ve cried
No matter who has died
No matter how you hurt
His love will see you throughBRIDGE
The Saviour reaches down no
Holds you in his palm
He picks you up so lightly
And nestles you in the cradle of his arm
The cradle of his arm

Who Am I?

I sit in your presence Lord
I come to worship you alone
I bring you all I am and all that I am not
And I worship at your throne

I’ve been the prodigal
I’ve been through endless fire
And suffered the affliction of following my own way
I’ve felt the countless loss
I’ve seen the passing years
The folly of my selfishness leads me just to say..

Who am I? Who am I?
Who am I Lord? Who am I Lord? ‘You’re my child and I love you
I want the best for you, I’ve got a plan for your life
I’ve seen all you’ve been thru, I bind up your wounds
I love you, let me now heal your heart
In my presence is fullness of joy
In my presence is fullness of joy
In my presence I will heal your heart
Come into my presence, there’s fullness of joy’

Create In Me Ps 51

Create in me a pure heart O God
And renew a right spirit in me
Create in me a pure heart O God
And renew a right spirit in me

Have mercy on me O God
According to your unfailing love
According to your compassion
Blot out my transgression..

Hide your face from my sins
And blot out my iniquity
Let me hear joy and gladness
Let the bones you have crushed rejoice!

Don’t cast me from your presence
Or take your Holy Spirit from me
Give me back the joy of salvation
Renew a willing spirit to sustain me..Then I will teach the fallen of your ways
To lead their hearts from sin back to you
For the sacrifice acceptable to God
Is a broken spirit
A broken and a humble heart
You wont despise, you wont despise

(Note: this version contains an extra verse)

Look to the Hills Paraphrase of Ps 121

The road has been long, the trials have been hard
The lessons come slowly some times
We’ve been misunderstood and not done what we should
The road ahead just climbs and climbsCHORUS
So we look to the hills with light in our eyes
A song on our tongues we sing
Yes Jesus is Lord He’s risen from the dead
And its Him we proclaim as King

The challenges of faith we haven’t always met
Some times fear in our heart has been our guide
But as we speak the Word the fears seem so absurd
And there isn’t any need to hide CHORUS

The world closes in with cynicism and sin
It can offer no hope just despair
And I feel sucked down by the ever-sinking ground
But before I choke I’m coming up for air CHORUS

Songs from ‘REVELATION’

Rider On The White Horse Rev 19:11-16

CHORUS
King of Kings, Lord of Lords
He’s the Rider on the White Horse X2

I saw heaven standing open
And there before me was a white horse
Whose rider is called Faithful and True
With justice, He judges and makes warCHORUS

His eyes are like blazing fire
And on His head are many crowns
He has a name written on Him
That no one but He Himself knowsCHORUS

He’s dressed in a robe dipped in blood
And His name is the Word of God

BRIDGE:
The armies of heaven were following Him
Riding on whites horses
And dressed in fine linen, white and clean
Out of His mouth comes a sharp sword
With which to strike down the nations
He’ll rule them with an iron sceptre
He treads the winepress of the fury
Of the wrath of God Almighty
On His robe, on His thigh
He has this name written

CHORUS
