“These Hands” – Angela Michael
Written by Angela Michael and TJ Stafford
 
These hands are trembling, this face is worn
There is no home for the weary, wandering soul
Here I am, trapped inside of me
Empty handed on my knees
Only You can set me free.
 
Chorus:
May these hands lift up praise
May my tongue exalt Your name
May this heart glorify You
 
This heart is empty & sore with wounds from this war
Spirit & flesh are wrestling for my soul
Here I am, trapped inside of me
Empty handed on my knees
Only you can set me free.
 
Chorus
 
“Listen to our Hearts” – Larissa Lam
Written by Steven Curtis Chapman and Geoff Moore
 
How do you explain, how do you describe
A love that goes from east to west
And runs ad deep as it is wide
You know all our hopes, You know all our fears
Words cannot express the love we feel
But we long for you to hear
 
Chorus:
So listen to our hearts, and hear our spirits sing
A song of praise that flows
From those you have redeemed
We will use the words we know
To tell you what an awesome God You are
Words are not enough to tell You of our love
So listen to our hearts
If words could fall like rain
From these lips of mine
And if I had a thousand years
I would still run out of time
So if you listen to my heart
Every beat would say
Thank you for the life, thank you for the truth
Thank you for the way
           
“Everything I Need” – Meme Stephens
Written by Meme Stephens and Paul Buono
 
Lord You are my Shepherd
I shall not want for anything. 
You’re my bread and water
so I have everything I need,
You’re everything I need. 
You lead me to the meadow lush and green
and You make me lie down beside quiet steams
and as I rest You restore my soul
Only You can make me whole, You strengthen me,
You are everything I need.
 
Chorus:           
You’re everything I need…oh,
You are.  Everything I need…..Oh
 
Lord You’re my direction
and for your name sake You lead me. 
You’re my protection
Your rod and staff they comfort me, You comfort me. Though I walk through the valley of death
I will not fear for you promised me nothing less than to stay with me, all the way with me, so on I go, because I know You are everything I need.
 
Lord, You set a table, a party before my enemies and on my head You pour oil, I over flow.
Surely Your goodness and kindness will follow me all the days of my life…all the days of my life…all the days of my life until I’m home…until I’m home…..
 
(Chorus)
 
Lord You are my shepherd, I shall not want for anything.  You are my shepherd Lord, I have everything I need.
 
“You Don’t Change” – Krissy Nordhoff
Written by Krissy Nordhoff and Paul Buono
 
In a world that builds upon the shifting sand
You’re the solid rock on which I stand
You’re my foundation, strong and true
There is nothing that can move You
 
Chorus:
You don’t change
No matter what comes
No matter what goes
I always know
You don’t change
From yesterday
Today, always
You are my strength
You don’t change
(You don’t change)
 
When the storms of life are crashing all around
And the weight of all my cares pulls me down
I feel You reaching for my hand
I know there’s nothing we can’t withstand
 
Chorus
 
You will never ever
You will never ever change (x3)
 
In a world that builds upon the shifting sand
You’re the solid rock on which I stand….
 
Chorus
 
“Seeds” – Jill Welch
Written by Jill Welch
 
I sit here with this loss tonight
And I tried letting go
Today I watched carry you out
But I saw so much more
Redemption was your story
And faith was your way home
You fixed our eyes on the glory
Of all the seeds you had sown
 
Chorus:
So now fly, brother, to that place
To God’s healing hand and warm embrace
And finally hear Him tell you face to face
Job well done, my faithful son
You’ve been vessel of God’s grace 
 
So we search our hearts for answers
On we’re left to hold
And we find your inspiration
To go and be so bold
Redemption is our story
And faith is our way home
We’ll fix our eyes on the glory
Of the seeds left to sow
 
Chorus
 
“I Will Not Be Afraid” – Kathleen Carnali
Written by Kathleen Carnali
 
Lift me like an eagle let me fly
Up above the storm You lift me high
But if it be Your will that I sail low
You promised me You’d never let me go

Chorus:
Let You’re will, be my desire
Let Your Spirit, be my soul’s fire
Let Your strength lift me higher
And I will not be afraid

Let the Spirit of Your living water flow
As it makes the seed of faith inside me grow
Like a child I look to You with all my might
And even through the darkest hour, I see Your light

Chorus

But as I walk this straight and narrow road
The ground may be hard and the valley cold
But You’ve given me Your Word to light my way
As I set my eyes upon that final day
You take me away


Chorus
 
“You Carried Me” – Melissa Disney
Written by Melissa Disney
It’s overwhelming, I‘ve got nothing left to hide
It’s overwhelming, as tears well up inside
Just when I needed you most
Just when I needed you most
Just when I needed you most, you carried me
 
I was ready to give up, ready to die
Just couldn’t receive love, no matter how I tried
Just when I needed you most
Just when I needed you most
Just when I needed you most, you carried me
 
Thought I could make it without you by my side
I know what it’s like now to fall all the way down the slide
Just when I needed you most
Just when I needed you most
Just when I needed you most, you carried me
 
And for the first time in my life I can see, I can see
 
“Ordinary Girl” - Rachanee
Written by Rachanee Kitchel and Steve Wilson
If you ask me if I love you
I would tell you that I do
but iIturn you down so much
Will you pick me up again

I'm so perfect at living my life wrong
I keep letting go but you keep holding on

CHORUS:
Why do You wanna give me
Extraordinary grace
I'm just an ordinary girl

I hold out for something small
and pretend it was your miracle
my fear became my crutch
but you're much bigger than I am

I'm so perfect at living my life wrong
I keep letting go but you keep holding on

CHORUS

SECOND CHORUS
Why do you wanna love me
in extraordinary ways
I'm just an ordinary girl

 
“Impossibly Beautiful” – Bree Noble
Written by Daniel Goodman
 
I am the question and you are the answer
I am the lyric with words who like dancers
Need you the melody to give life to my song
 
I am a boat on the sea all alone
You are the North Star guiding me home
I’m the explorer and you are the treasure I seek
 
Chorus:
And how can I dare to believe
I wake from this dream to see
Impossibly beautiful, you walk beside me
And all that I see in you
I just want to be with you
Impossibly beautiful, but beautifully true
 
I am a Japanese house made of paper
You like a hurricane lay me to waste
Here in my brokenness everything changes but you
 
Chorus
 
“Come Find Me” – Deb Fung
Written by Deb Fung
 
The quest to seek and find and never let go
A love that takes the time to understand and overflow
And I will not contain its fire for its fire will take control
This love will overcome my pride this love will saturate my soul
 
You’ll see the deepest part of me
Beyond the scars I bear and faces that all others see
And you will not refuse my heart though this heart is not so clean
It bears the edges of a hardened life, the pain of shattered dreams
 
Come find me
I know you are mine
I will not
Allow failure to define
My future
Oh and oh that you would see
And come and find me
 
I know I’ll never be the same
And though you may not see, inside my heart something will change
The child who disappeared in me so long ago will somehow know
That she can finally be set free, for you will never let her go
 
Come find me
I know you are mine
I will not
Allow failure to define
My future
Oh and oh that you would see
And come and find me
 
Come find me
I know you are real
Somewhere you
Love and seek to find me still
So I wait
Oh and oh that you would see
And come and find me
 
“Hallelujah” – Rosanna Fiorazo
Written by Rosanna Fiorazo
 
My arms are open wide
My heart’s filled with Your light
My voice cries out Your name, Yahweh
 
My feet will run to meet You    
My eyes will finally see You
My hands will touch Your face, My God
 
Chorus:
Hallelujah Hallelujah
I will worship You Lord, now and forever
I will worship You Lord, now and forever   
    
My arms are open wide           
My heart’s filled with Your light
My voice cries out Your name, Yahweh    
 
Chorus
                                    
Praise and glory and wisdom and thanks
And honor and power and strength
Be to our God forever and ever
Forever and ever, Amen    
 
Chorus
 
 
 
“Jesus, Hold the Children” – Hannah Ford
Written by Hannah Ford
Jesus, hold the children of the world close to you
Hold their heads high, and hold their hands tight
Let them see the joy upon your face,
Your love for them that won’t ever erase
Lead them to your grace

Chorus:

And may you be their strength to make it through this world
And may your love sustain and carry them for all of their days
Jesus, hold the children close to you

Jesus, hold the children of the world close to you
Protect and heal, provide and stand beside
Give them laughter for their pain,
Give them holiness for the stain this world has tried
So hard to leave upon them

Be their shepherd, be their guide
Through all their days and nights
Jesus, hold the children close to you
I pray Jesus, hold the children close to you.

 
“Shine for Me” – Hoi
Written by Hoi
 
I know the thoughts
that occupy your mind
Late at night when
your head hits the pillow
You wonder why
I’ve placed you in this world
And you want answers
But I need for you to know
 
All I want
And all I need
Is for you to do is shine for me
 
Chorus:
Shine for me
It may seem that it’s impossible
Shine for me
I never asked for you to conquer the world
‘Cause all I ever wanted you to do
was shine for me
 
You are called to be
the light of the world
Just like a lighthouse
shines for all to see
They will see your light
shining from afar
Leading those who’ve gone astray
back to me
 
Chorus
 
Bridge:
There will be times
You feel like the fire
Is burning out (burning out)
Just come to me
And this is where
Your strength will be found
