Track Name: Search Me
Search Me by mc

Search me, and know my heart; O God,
test me and know my anxious thoughts.

Search me, and know my thoughts; O God,
test me and know my anxious heart,
my anxious heart
my anxious heart.

my heart…my heart…my heart…my heart…

What You knit together in my mother’s womb
Was body & soul together in that sacred room
I will thank and praise You - praise You all my days
For fearfully and wonderfully are the ways that I am made


If I ride the wings of dawn or live beyond the sea
Your strong hand will hold me fast Your right hand guides me
When the sin that darkens me is running from Your light
Or when I ask the dark of night to hide me from Your eyes

even the darkness will not be dark to You;
even the darkness will not be dark to You;
even the darkness will not be dark to You;
for the darkest of the darkness is as light to You.
The nighttime it is shining like the day to You
The nightest of all nighttimes is so bright to You
The brightest of the brightness is the same to You
Even the darkness will not be dark to You

Search me, and know my heart; O God,
test me and know my anxious thoughts.

Search me, and know my thoughts; O God,
test me and know my anxious heart,
my anxious heart
my anxious heart.

my heart…my heart…my heart…my heart…


even the darkness will not be dark to You
even the darkness will not be dark to You
even the darkness will not be dark to You
even the darkness will not be dark to You
even the darkness will not be dark to You
even the darkness will not be dark to You
Track Name: We Should Sing A New Song
We Should Sing A New Song by mc

I will praise the Lord - even in my pain
The heavens and the earth - they will do the same
The seas and all that move - in them, they all proclaim
The greatness of Your love - the greatness of Your name

We should sing a new song to the Lord
We should sing it loud with all our voice
It should have the sound of harmony
It should show the world what love can be
We should sing a new song
We should sing a new song
We should sing a new song to the Lord

Jesus full of grace - the humble You adore
This world’s a hungry place – with no justice for the poor
Jesus full of peace - yet our hearts so full of war
We take our pruning hooks - we beat them into swords

But we should sing a new song to the Lord
We should sing it out with Hope and Joy
It should sound like Justice rolling down
It should sound like lightning finding ground
We should sing a new song
We should sing a new song
We should sing a new song to the Lord

And make our lives Your new song
And sing Your kingdom through us now
Let our lives be witness
Of Your love for Your world
Let them hear - about Christ
Let them hear thru our lives

I will praise the Lord
I will praise the Lord
I will praise the Lord
Track Name: Isaiah 40
Isaiah 40 by mc

Prepare the way
Make straight my heart
So that Your Glory might shine

Take the pride in me and bring it to its knees
In the places I am low, lift me up - make me whole
My inconsistent heart, pull it straight
The roughness of my speech, make it smooth - make it sweet

Surely I am grass
Just as surely I will fade
I am like the grass
And someday soon I’ll fade away

Take the love in me out for all to see
In the places I am rich, help me see my need for Thee
Still my racing thoughts - center me
Peel my layers back – open me – help me see that…

Surely I am grass
Just as surely I will fade
I am like the grass
And someday soon I’ll fade away
But Jesus You remain
Jesus you will stay

Take my jealousy make it generosity
In the places I have need – help me give abundantly
Teach me how to live patiently
Teach me to forgive – humble me
Teach me of Your love – gather me
Your strong hand of love over me

We are like the grass
And like the flower – fade away
Jesus Your word stays
The things You speak will never fade
Jesus You remain
Jesus you will stay

Prepare the way
Make straight my heart
So that Your Glory might shine
Track Name: Lord I Believe, Help My Unbelief
Lord I Believe, Help My Unbelief! by mc

Jesus, where are You now?
Jesus, I long to meet You now
I want to tell You all my hopes, all my fears
I want to kneel before You
Would You lift my head and wipe away these tears
So often I make my moves, make my moves without You
Live life on my own, play by my own set of rules

Lord I believe – Help my unbelief!
Lord I believe – But would You help me see
Lord I believe – And yet I still doubt
Lord I believe – Could You help me out
Lord I believe – Yes I believe
Lord I believe – Help my unbelief!

Jesus, would You come and fill this place?
Would You come and meet us
With Your love, with Your grace
We lift You up now, put no other gods before You
But only with Your help, this is so hard for us to do
So many times You find us with our hands behind our backs
Wishing You would look away
Or wishing we could hide these damning tracks

Lord we believe – Help our unbelief
Lord we believe – But would You help us see
Lord we believe – And yet we still doubt
Lord we believe – Could You help us out
Lord I believe – Yes I believe
Lord I believe – Help my unbelief!
Track Name: Horse and Rider
Horse and Rider by mc

Horse and Rider
Thrown into the sea
A whole world’s desires
An empire enslaving me

Chariots and armies
Seeking to isolate
Mimic Your grandeur
They can never replicate

The Lord is our strength
And our song
He has become
Our salvation

You stretch out your hand
This has set us free
You work miracles
You open up the sea for us…

You guide us with Your strength
Into Your place of peace
You lead us in Your love
The people You redeemed
We are the people You redeemed

The Lord is our strength
And our song
He has become
Our salvation

Who is like You, O Lord?
Majestic in holiness
Who is like You, O Lord?
Awesome in glory - Working Your wonders
Saving with power - Healing the nations
Seeking the poorest - Freeing the captives

Sticking beside us when we turn away
You stick beside us when we turn away
And we turn away almost every day

Lord ,You will reign
Lord You will reign
forever forever forever amen

Horse and Rider
Thrown into the sea
The Lord has provided
He has set us free
Track Name: You Are The Image
You are the Image by mc

You are the image of the invisible God
You are the firstborn over all of creation
And by You everything was created
Things of heaven things of earth
The visible and invisible
Thrones, powers, rulers and authorities

All things were created by You
And for You
All things hold together through You
Through You

You are the image of the invisible God
You are the firstborn over all of creation
You were in the beginning
And firstborn from the dead
The head of the body
In everything You have the supremacy
In all things God has given You authority

For God was pleased at having all His fullness dwell in You – in You
Through Your death He makes peace and He reconciles all things thru You
Track Name: Center My Heart
Center My Heart by mc

Center my heart upon You Lord
Center my heart upon You

It’s so easy to fall asleep in life
And let the night erase the day
The comfort of not thinking calls my name

It’s so easy to sink this ship I’m sailing on instead
of digging in and rowing through
the storms of life with You

So center my heart, center my soul
Center my strength upon You Lord
Center my mind, center my life
Center my heart upon You

It’s so easy to be the person who
Will take the path that’s effortless
Any time there’s trouble I turn back

And it’s so easy to bless the people who
Reach out to me, the harder thing
Is loving those my instincts say reject

So center my heart, center my soul
Center my strength upon You Lord
Center my mind, center my life
Center my heart upon You

For I would love this life and to see good days
So let me refrain my tongue from evil - my lips from speaking deceit
Let me turn my heart towards You
Let me seek peace and pursue it as I follow You
For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous
And Your ears are open to their prayers
You are open to their prayers
You are open to our prayers

When we center our hearts upon You Lord
We center our hearts upon You
So we center our hearts upon You Lord
We center our hearts upon You
Track Name: Psalm 23
Psalm 23 by mc

You are my King - I shall not want
Whether I’m rich or poor Your mercies I’ve got
You lead me down beside the stream
Tell me to rest awhile in the meadows of green

Surely goodness and mercy will follow me
Surely goodness and mercy will follow me
Surely goodness and mercy will follow me
All my days All my days

You fix my soul - You take my blame
You lead me to righteousness for the sake of Your name
Yea thou I walk through times of tears
You walk beside me gently calming my fears
You set me up with food and drink
Anoint my head with oil - You fill me over the brink

Surely goodness and mercy will follow me
Surely goodness and mercy will follow me
Surely goodness and mercy will follow me
All my days All my days

I will live in Your house forever
I will dwell in Your courts forever
I will walk in Your light forever
I will worship You now and forever
Track Name: Who Will Save Me?
Who Will Save Me by mc 7/19/07

I’ve been hopeless and alone I’ve been thoughtless and afraid
I’ve been running from my calling and the caller all the same
I’ve been putting down my money for a ticket out of here
I’ve been planning out my future but now nothing seems too clear

I go down to the bottom To the bottom of the sea
I go down where the ocean weighs so heavy over me
I can’t breath I can’t sleep I can hardly hear Your name
All this pain in my frame I can barely speak this prayer

Who will save me?
Who will save me?
Who will save me now?

As my life it ebbs away and my last prayer comes to You
In Your temple I’m reminded of your mercies ever new
With a voice of great thanksgiving and an offering of praise
All the pain it fades away and I’m crying out again - singing

You will save me!
You will save me!
You have saved me now!

Who will save me?
You will save me!
Who will save me?
You will save me now!

You brought my life up from the pit
Now I will tell the world of this
Of Your great love, Your mighty deeds
Forgiveness that the whole world needs
I once was lost but now I’m found
Thrown overboard and left for drowned
But You reached down and pulled me up
Your water overflows my cup
Track Name: I Know The Plans
I Know The Plans by mc

I know the plans I have for you
Thus saith the Lord
A plan for hope to prosper you
Not to destroy

I’ve come to set you captives free
And heal your broken hearts
Submit yourselves beneath my wings
And learn from me

Hear wisdom call out to you
Hear folly she’s calling too
This day, which will you choose?
This day, this day, I say, “Go with the Lord!”

I am the way, the truth, the life
Thus saith the Lord
Lean not upon your own understanding
But trust in Me…

Hear wisdom call out to you
Hear folly she’s calling too
This day, which will you choose?
This day, this day, you’ll choose!
So blessed are you who find wisdom
And all those who seek they will find me
My wisdom – more precious than rubies
Nothing you desire can compare with the Lord!

I know the plans I have for you
Thus saith the Lord
A plan for hope, hope for your future
Not to destroy
Track Name: The Magnificat
The Magnificat by mary

My soul magnifies the Lord
And my spirit rejoices in God, my Savior
My soul magnifies the Lord
And my spirit rejoices in God

For He has regarded my low estate
For He has regarded my low estate
From now on all generations will call me blessed
From now on all generations will call me blessed

For He who is mighty has done great things for me
For He who is mighty has done great things
Has done great things for me

And Holy – Holy is His name
Holy – Holy is His name
Holy – Holy is Your name
Holy – Holy is Your name

And He has exalted those of low degree
Yes He has exalted those of low degree
And He, He has satisfied the hungry with good things
Yes He, He has satisfied the hungry with good things

And Holy – Holy is His name
Holy – Holy is His name

Track Name: Holy Lamb Of God
Holy Lamb of God by mc

Jesus

You take away our sins, will You grant us Your peace now?
Grant us Your peace now

Grant us Your peace now
Redeemer of our lives
The perfect sacrifice

Track Name: A Love That Goes Deeper
A Love That Goes Deeper by mc

Jesus I wonder could you provide
A love that goes deeper than darkness can hide
Cause you know that I’ve hidden my heart from your grip
Into darkness I’ve wandered, into darkness I’ve slipped

Would you take all these ashes, they’re all that is left
From a life I have squandered on idols bereft
I was hoping you’d take them and scatter ‘em wide
And turn them to sweetness, sweetness and life
I was hoping you’d take them and turn them to love
The love that you offer that no darkness can hold

And when I’m down and when I’m out
Would you save me from my doubt?
Cause I’ve believed and I’ve received
Countless times your mysteries
But life weighs down, my thoughts turn black
I wonder if you’ll have me back…again…

Will you be my friend? Would you take my hand?
Would you lead me to a place where I can stand?

Where I can feel…Where I can heal…
Where I can be revealed so I can be a friend…

Jesus I wonder could you provide
A love that goes deeper than darkness can hide
A love that is stronger than the weight of my sin
A love that is wider…A love that will win

Help me love the way you love
When it hurts, when none returns
So the one in front of me
Fades away and Your face is all I see
Help me be a friend…
To my fellow man…
Help me love someone…
Help me understand…
Track Name: Words To Build A Life On
Words To Build A Life On Mike Crawford © 2004, BMI CCLI Song No. 4541172

These are words to build a life on
These are Your words how can they be mine
These are words to build a life on
These are Your words I want them to be mine

Blessed are the poor
Blessed are the weak
Blessed are the ones
Who can barely speak

Blessed in your hurt
Blessed in your pain
Blessed when your teardrops
Are falling down like rain

Blessed when you’re broken
Blessed when you’re blind
Blessed when you’re fragile
When you have lost your mind

Blessed when you’re desperate
Blessed when you’re scared
Blessed when you’re lonely
Blessed when you’ve failed

Blessed when you’re beat up
Blessed when you’re bruised
Blessed when you’re tore down
Blessed when you’re used


These are words to build a life on
These are Your words how can they be mine
These are words to build a life on
These are Your words I want them to be mine


Blessed when you’re heartbroke
Blessed when you’re fired
Blessed when you’re choked up
Blessed when you’re tired

Blessed when the plans
That you so carefully laid
End up in the junkyard
With all the trash you made

Blessed when you feel like
Giving up the ghost
Blessed when your loved ones
Are the ones who hurt you most

Blessed when you lose your
Own identity
Then blessed when you find it
And it has been redeemed

Blessed when you see what
Your friends can never be
Blessed with your eyes closed
Then Blessed you see Me

These are words to build a life on
These are Your words how can they be mine
These are words to build a life on
These are Your words I want them to be mine

Blessed when you’re hungry
Blessed when you thirst
Cause that’s when you will eat of
The bread that matters most

Blessed when you’re put down
Because of me you’re dissed
Because of me you’re kicked out
They take you off their list

You know you’re on the mark
You know you’ve got it right
You are to be my salt
You are to be my light

So bring out all the flavour
In the feast of this My world
And light up all the colours
Let the banners be unfurled

Shout it from the rooftops
Let the trumpets ring
Sing your freaking lungs out
Tell them Jesus Christ is King!

Jesus is my Saviour
Jesus is divine
Jesus is my answer
Jesus is my life

These are words to build a life on
These are Your words how can they be mine
These are words to build a life on
These are Your words I want them to be mine

Give us ears that we may hear them
voice that we may sing them
life that we may live them
hope that we may give them
hearts that we can feel them
eyes that we can see them
thoughts that we may think them
tongues that we may speak Your words

Your words
These are Your words
I want them to be mine
Be mine
Be mine
