O my soul We are all a short breath. We are all a passing breeze. O my soul Taunted by the liars Haunted by the earthly gold O my soul! How long will others throw their stones? How long will I be left alone? You are in the worn out races. You are in the torn up places. My rock, my home. O my soul I can feel the curses Burning in their ugly words. O my soul Rest in your salvation I will not be shaken O my soul! How long will others throw their stones? How long will I be left alone? You are in the worn out races. You are in the torn up places. My rock, my home. We will rest in him, my soul; there is peace within. When our hope wears thin, my soul, we will rest in him. O my soul Though the winds are weighty, God is love that will not change. O my soul Rest in your salvation I will not be shaken O my soul! How long will others throw their stones? How long will I be left alone? You are in the worn out races. You are in the torn up places. My rock, my home. My rock, my home.

We will praise you, Lord, with all our hearts We will put all these idols behind us and sing We will praise you, Lord And all earth’s kings bow and sing We will praise you Lord, praise you Lord, forever We cry aloud to your throne knowing you call us your own Your people are here in your home: praise the Lord! You hear our call from on high you hear our loneliest cries. Your love has brought day to our night: praise the Lord! We are dust to dust, but you smile on us We will sing of your ways, we will sing all our days In your word we trust And all earth’s kings bow and sing We will praise you Lord, praise you Lord, forever We cry aloud to your throne knowing you call us your own Your people are here in your home: praise the Lord! You hear our call from on high you hear our loneliest cries. Your love has brought day to our night: praise the Lord! Great are you Lord! Great are you Lord! Great are you Lord! Great are you Lord! Great are you Lord! Great are you Lord! Great are you Lord! Great are you Lord! We cry aloud to your throne knowing you call us your own Your people are here in your home: praise the Lord! You hear our call from on high you hear our loneliest cries. Your love has brought day to our night: praise the Lord! We will praise you, Lord, with all our hearts

Praise to the Lord, praise him you servants of God; sing to the Lord. Sing now to God, sing in this moment and sing forevermore. Who's like our God? Who's like our God? Gathered to be called as his own, we will sing, sing to the Lord. Homeless and weak, our earthly pain has an end; sing to the Lord. Who's like our God? Who's like our God? We who are poor, are filled with his peace We who are needy will be made complete and we’ll praise him! Seated with princes, the least of us are seated together in glory restored; we will praise the Lord. Circling the sun, rising and setting and we sing to the Lord. Nations we make, borders that crumble and fall; sing to the Lord. Who's like our God? Who's like our God? We who are poor, are filled with his peace We who are needy will be made complete and we’ll praise him! Seated with princes, the least of us are seated together in glory restored; we will praise the Lord. We without family, and we without homes, We will praise him. We’ll be together, we’ll be called his own We will praise him. Who can compare to our infinite king? Who holds us together? To whom do we sing? We will praise him. Who's like our God? Who's like our God? We who are poor, are filled with his peace We who are needy will be made complete and we’ll praise him! Seated with princes, the least of us are seated together in glory restored; we will praise the Lord.

Oh my God why have you forsaken me? Why are you so far from saving me? Lord above, I cry out by day, but you do not answer Lord above, I cry out by night; do you hear my voice? Raging lions here to end me! Men surrounding; I am empty! Swords are falling; I am crawling in the dust, O Lord. Will you deliver? Oh my God you brought me into life. From birth I knew to love only you. Lord above, I cry out by day, but you do not answer Lord above, I cry out by night; do you hear my voice? Raging lions here to end me! Men surrounding; I am empty! Swords are falling; I am crawling in the dust, O Lord. Will you deliver? Oh my God (forsaken me) Oh my God Oh my God (forsaken me) Oh my God Oh my God (forsaken me) Oh my God Oh my God (forsaken me) Oh my God Oh my God how you do not despise. You hear us Oh God you hear our cries. Raging lions here to end me! Men surrounding; I am empty! Swords are falling; I am crawling in the dust, O Lord. Will you deliver?

I will wait for the Lord I will wait to be restored All the saints gone before O, they wait for the Lord I will wait for the Lord And though my sin takes hold, his forgiveness renews my soul I will put my hope in the One who never fails I will wait for the Lord From a dark, broken place Trapped in night, I cry for day How my whole being waits O, it waits for the Lord I will wait for the Lord And though my sin takes hold, his forgiveness renews my soul I will put my hope in the One who never fails I will wait for the Lord More than watchmen wait for morning, More than midnight waits for day, Let our hearts and hands be open, And our souls alive, awake God, your love buried death and forgives every unclean breath. Like a child at the door, I will wait for the Lord We will wait for the Lord And though my sin takes hold, his forgiveness renews my soul I will put my hope in the One who never fails I will wait for the Lord I will wait for the Lord I will wait for the Lord

You have searched me; you know my heart. Hidden secrets all fall apart. Words spoken and words inside Driving me with unholy pride But grace has flown to my fallen side Where can I go? How can I flee? Where can I go where you won’t lead? On the wings of dawn or across the sea I cannot know how you know me. Deepest darkness makes me unfound light has left and the night surrounds But now is when the sweet day shines through For dark and light are the same to you Dark and light are the same to you Where can I go? How can I flee? Where can I go where you won’t lead? On the wings of dawn or across the sea I cannot know how you know me. Many hate and misuse your name Moving hard against your domain But you have searched me, you know my heart You have searched me, you know my heart Where can I go? How can I flee? Where can I go where you won’t lead? On the wings of dawn or across the sea I cannot know how you know me. You made nothing into this earth Wove me right into my birth The steep and the deep will not hide me Will not hide me Where can I go? How can I flee? Where can I go where you won’t lead? On the wings of dawn or across the sea Where can I go? How can I flee? Your Spirit still will follow me On the wings of dawn or across the sea I cannot know how you know me.

Hear my voice, O Lord when I call to you In your mercy hear your servant plead. Never leave, O Lord never turn away Send your holiness; be here with me. We can see amazing grace In the beauty of your face The Lord is light. What should we fear? We’ll be made right, and the shadows here will disappear, the shadows here will disappear The Lord is my light Have the wicked come? Have they come for me? Are they here to crush my distant hope? I am closed in by darkness all around But the Lord restores my wounded soul We can see amazing grace In the beauty of your face The Lord is light. What should we fear? We’ll be made right, and the shadows here will disappear, the shadows here will disappear The Lord is my light I am sure of this: one day I’ll be free O, and I’ll take heart since you love me. The Lord is light. What should we fear? We’ll be made right, and the shadows here will disappear, the shadows here will disappear The Lord is light. What should we fear? We’ll be made right, and the shadows here will disappear, the shadows here will disappear The Lord is my light

Lord, our Lord How majestic is your name In all the earth Your people Old and young A life of praise has just begun Night skies show us just how small we are Light and shadow, planets, moons and stars And yet you love! And yet you love even us Lord, our Lord How majestic is your name In all the earth Your people Old and young A life of praise has just begun Your name pushes forests and fields toward the sky from the land Mountains of granite look down on the sea and the sand And yet you love! And yet you love even us Lord, our Lord How majestic is your name In all the earth Your people Old and young A life of praise has just begun Creatures in flight, on the ground, in the night, they are yours The planet is lit by your holy name forevermore And yet you love! And yet you love even us Lord, our Lord, your majesty reigns over all the earth!

Bless the Lord, o my Soul And all that lives within me Bless his holy name Bless his holy name He forgives all our sins and heals our diseases, He pulls up the mess of us; He crowns us with love, and shows us compassion He gives only good while we trust Bless the Lord, o my Soul And all that lives within me Bless his holy name Bless his holy name His anger will wait, his justice will move through His people, forgiven and free; Our days fade away, but we carry God’s love Throughout Earth and eternity. Bless the Lord, o my Soul And all that lives within me Bless his holy name Bless his holy name

God, you reign forever We will sing of what you’ve done for us In the brightest halls of heaven We will sing of what you’ve done for us Let him hear these words; Let your voice be heard Our God is holy, and he is here Our God is holy, and he is here The earth bows before you We will sing of what you’ve done for us You lift us up before you We will sing of what you’ve done for us Let him hear these words; Let your voice be heard Our God is holy, and he is here Our God is holy, and he is here Tired of earthly treasure, We will sing of what you’ve done for us Through fire and through water We will sing of what you’ve done for us Let him hear these words; Let your voice be heard Our God is holy, and he is here Our God is holy, and he is here Our God is holy, and he is here Our God is holy, and he is here

We confess Our soiled past We will run from it no more But we feel Like it will last Has your love erased the score? Let our song Rise to you You will save us from the flood We will run Run to you, O God, To be covered by your love Silence keeps Our hearts from you We will live like this no more Not one thing We can do Since your love erased the score Let our song Rise to you You will save us from the flood We will run Run to you, O God, To be covered by your love God, you make us new We rejoice in you God, you make us new We rejoice in you Night and day My guilt remains Oh, the burden of this weight But you break These leaden chains And you lift me from this place Let our song Rise to you You will save us from the flood We will run Run to you, O God, To be covered by your love We will run Run to you, O God, To be covered by your love
