Track Name: I Used to be a Child
I used to be a child before I came to know the ways of man
I used to sit at Your feet, hang on Your words, drink up Your love
Yes I used to be a child
I used to be a child before I learned to be mature
Yes I did believe like a fool
And the world had to know my Father was good
Oh I used to be a child

Hard heart, soften now
And these walls I've built I'm tearing to the ground
'Cause somehow I've lost my sight
And I need to see myself as Your child

I used to be a child before I ever felt the need to please
Oh how I trusted Your love, that was enough, all that I needed
I used to be a child

Let a foolish dance begin in my feet
And a loud song of praise in my mouth
Let all my offenses leave, let all my defenses fall
You will have me right where You want me

Oh and I'm gonna sing a new song to my Father
Track Name: Hope
Oh how, we've wrestled through the night
And we've lost sleep, and we've lost hope
And the strength to fight
We pray with eyes that cannot see
The fullness of what all this means
But here we wage war in knowing You have won

I'm calling out Your promises, I'm laying this before You now
Oh how it seems impossible, but nothing is too hard for You
Everything is on the line, I'm not giving up this time
For we have a hope that's greater still

Our hope is not in what we see
And we know that often the battles fought
Are much further than our reach
So we're trusting not in the strength of man
Your will is greater than all our plans
And the victory is Yours and so we run to You

When everything is breaking around me
You are greater than all I can see
My hope is firm in the Invisible
I'm believing You for the impossible
Track Name: My Love is a Response
You saw my heart. Yes I was a mess from the start
Still You set Your sights on my soul and love took hold
Of me and You knew me - deep into the shame that did haunt me
Carrying my blame to the cross You took it all

I know that Your love came first when I didn’t do anything for You
Everything I have is from Your hand and I am resting in this truth

Your love came before I knew Your name
And Your blood was spent before I felt my shame
And You freely gave what I could never earn
‘Cause Your love came first and my love is a response

Father, I thank You, for I have seen the way You’ve pursued me
In all my faithless seasons and wanderings, Lord You held me
Close to Your heart - I am always found in Your arms
Faithful through these seasons of change, still You remain

And I know that Your love came first when I didn’t give anything to You
Everything I have is from Your hand and I am resting in this truth

Your love came before I knew Your name
And Your blood was spent before I felt my shame
And You freely gave what I could never earn
‘Cause Your love came first and my love is a response

Your love is the song I sing, Your love is the strength I need
I’m drawn into the mystery, the love that’s calling out to me
Track Name: Quiet
Quiet, quiet, faced with silence
You and me and everything between
Stillness, stillness, how I've misplaced
Your face in the midst of my worries

Hurry, hurry, my life's story
Thoughts that race a million miles a day
Yet in the quiet, You are speaking
Give me grace to hear the things You say

You say be still and I will, and I will
In the quiet You speak, I am listening
Track Name: Grace, Grace, Grace
There's a war in my flesh and I can't turn off my thoughts
There's an ache for your promise
But I can't see past all my faults
And the knowledge is there, but the heart seems lost in it all
Still now my soul, and I will know You are God

Lead me to the quiet, to the quiet place
Where I rest my head as You speak grace, grace, grace

How many hours of how many days do I strive
'Cause surely if I try enough I should get this thing right
Still You're showing me ways of surrender
And death that brings life
I will lose my life to find that You are mine
Track Name: Lay Me Down
Find the riches of Your grace
In the heart that is bowed low before You
And if I should desire to boast in anything
May I be the one that always boasts in You

Your glory is revealed in the soul that has lost all to find You
I tremble at this word, for I see all the things that I cling to

Lay me down a little more
Your glory in me, Lord

And how I've given You my efforts
When all You wanted was my surrender
And I have found no sweeter place than at Your feet
Where my heart finds its strength, finds its meaning
Track Name: All Things New
You have made Your home dwelling in the broken heart
Oh perfect Love, You are making all things new
And You have set Your hands
To mend the wounds we could not heal
Oh God, our hope, You are making all things whole

Still Your light is breaking through the darkest night
And we will see everything that You’ve redeemed
We’re hopeful in the trial, smiling through the tears
Holding out our hearts, for we know that You make all things new

I sing for You have changed everything I never could
And this old man’s dying and the new one’s rising up
So now let Your kingdom come, oh and let Your will be done
And let us see the fullness of Heaven invade our hearts

I’m giving You all of my heartache, the mistakes
Where I’m weak I am trusting You
To take what is lost, what is broken and fading
Let me see what Your grace can do
I am amazed at the power of Your love
In my darkness Your light shines through
Awaken my heart, let me sing, let me shout it out
I was dead and You made me new

Still Your light is breaking through the darkest night
(Is carrying us through these storms)
And we will see everything that You’ve redeemed
(Everything that You’ve restored)
Track Name: Peace
I will lose anxiety in prayer
And thankfulness will be the language that I speak
I will bury my worries in Your praise
For You are greater than anything I face

Oh Your peace, it guards me
Oh Your peace, it guards me
Oh Your love, it holds me
Spirit, You sustain me

My heart can fail so easily at any sign of fear
Oh don't give way just now
For I know the trouble that's at hand
But You have overcome the grave and now I stand

What is noble, what is true, I will fix my thoughts on You
What is lovely, what is pure, I will fix my thoughts on You
What is worthy, what is sure, I will fix my thoughts on You
What is constant and secure, I will fix my thoughts on You
Track Name: Overflow
I speak the kindest words, and whisper when nobody hears
What is my overflow, what is my overflow
And no one knows my heart, except the words that tell so well
What is my overflow, it’s when I speak I know
And I see deep into my heart when I speak what do I impart

One word and a thousand motives
You see the contents of my heart
My tongue tells of my condition
I’m crying for You to be my overflow, overflow

Am I a thousand swords, each one to kill a thousand dreams
What is my overflow, what is my overflow
Am I the voice of love, compassion dripping from my lips
What is my overflow, what is my overflow
And I see deep into my heart when I speak what do I impart

All the words, all the words that You hear me say
You’ll hold each one accountable one day
Let me speak though it were Your voice
Reaching out through me
Track Name: Your Presence
I come quietly, humbled on my knees for I know You are holy
Here I wait for You, here my hunger grows
Oh to know You more, oh to know You more

This expectancy fills my every breath for I know You are here
And here my spirit waits, oh for just one taste
Delight of my heart, I wait on You
And You fill the thirsty, and I am athirst for You

I want nothing more than Your presence, Lord
Oh I will taste and see that You are good
And here my heart, will be satisfied
For all of my delight is here with You

I turn my steps toward all Your ways oh Lord and I run after You
Leaving death behind, oh for life is mine
All the fullness of joy is here in You
And You give Your spirit to those who would cry out

Everything inside of me longs to know You longs to be
Taken deeper into all You are
Open up my eyes to see, come and move my heart to sing
Worthy are You, Lord
Track Name: Were You There
Were you there when they crucified my Lord
Were you there when they crucified my Lord
Ohhhh sometimes it causes me to tremble, tremble, tremble
Were you there when they crucified my Lord

Were you there when they nailed Him to the tree...

Were you there when they laid Him in the tomb...

And the darkness fled, and my sin was gone
He is risen, He is risen
All my fear and shame buried in the grave
He is risen, He is risen
Death where is your sting, where’s your victory
He is risen, He is risen
Christ alive in me, behold the hope of glory
He is risen, He is risen
Sometimes it causes me to tremble, tremble, tremble
