Track Name: O My Soul - Psalm 62
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.
Track Name: Great Are You Lord - Psalm 138
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
Track Name: Who's Like Our God - Psalm 113
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.
Track Name: Be Still - Psalm 46
I’m your refuge and your strength
I will help you when the darkness is here
though this fair earth might give way
in my presence, dispel all your fear


these grand mountains fall away
rabid oceans may swallow them whole
if the ground caves in today
in my presence, dispel all your fear

I will be raised high over earth and sky
and I’ll never let you go
now be still and know that I am God
be still and know


in my city now I dwell
I will help it with the break of the dawn
holy water feeds these wells
I’m among you; I live on, I live on

I will be raised high over earth and sky
and I’ll never let you go
now be still and know that I am God
be still and know
look upon this holy power
what’s before you is already mine
I will break these raging swords
I will end all of your warring designs

and as I’m raised high over earth and sky
I will never let you go
now be still and know that I am God
be still and know
now be still and know that I am God
be still and know

now be still and know that I am God
be still and know
now be still and know that I am God
be still and know
Track Name: God of Every Nation - Psalm 96
Shout to the Lord; sing of his word
He is our salvation
We come before the God of evermore,
The God of every nation

we were born to sing of your love;
we were born to sing

We can hear the angels raise one mighty voice
Let the glory be to our God on high!
We can see the fields and mountains
shout for joy
to the heavens all of creation cries


Let all earthly sound show his love abounds
He is our salvation
Every tribe and land, guided by his hand
God of every nation

we were born to sing of your love;
we were born to sing

We can hear the angels raise one mighty voice
Let the glory be to our God on high!
We can see the fields and mountains
shout for joy
to the heavens all of creation cries

You are splendor and salvation;
you are on the waves and sand;
You are light and all creation
longs for your right hand

We can hear the angels raise one mighty voice
Let the glory be to our God on high!
We can see the fields and mountains
shout for joy
to the heavens all of creation cries
to the heavens all of creation cries
Track Name: Will You Deliver? - Psalm 22
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?
Track Name: I Will Wait - Psalm 130
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
Track Name: You Know Me - Psalm 139
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.
Track Name: The Lord is My Light - Psalm 27
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
Track Name: Even Us - Psalm 8
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!
Track Name: Bless the Lord - Psalm 103
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
Track Name: Our God is Holy - Psalm 66
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
Track Name: Let Our Song Rise to You - Psalm 32
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
