1. HE SAVES

VERSE
our fall we see it in the way we fight for self
our light gave death the call he’s often given out
our foe has had his trophy stripped by the all-wise
our past has sunk through darkened seas, never to rise

CHORUS
he saves he saves and all of it by grace
his throne is in the sky and in the tomb
he saves he saves and all of it by grace
his throne is here and yet it’s coming soon

VERSE 2
a hope, that fires cannot scorch or waters drown
we all will know the grace or wrath of his good crown
an end, to all the things not right, made new again
we’ve held the truth in fickle hearts, and want it plain

BRIDGE
our sands are his mountain our beads of sweat, his ocean
our efforts will not do

2. I NEED YOU

VERSE
I want to learn to walk and follow all your ways
your word is like a shining guide through dying days
my heart is so deceitful lying to my face
tells me all the things I want besides your saving grace

CHORUS
Oh I need you Lord I need you
the one who calmed the storms
to calm the storms in me
Oh I need you Lord I need you
the one who is the light
to light the dark in me

VERSE 2
I taste a hint of death on every single breath
and I shuffle tired feet with every single step
but I’ll trust in you, your word, your life, your promises
my glory and the lifter of my head

BRIDGE
Irrevocable and strong are your covenants oh God
and the love that you have shown is the only hope I own
set my gaze upon the cross and rejoice at satan’s loss
for my victory is won by my Savior, God the Son

3. MY SOUL KNOWS

VERSE
some would say our sin is small
the cross is long ago
his love is false and he has turned away
He would say our sin is great
the cross is where we see
his love is near and he has reached to me.

CHORUS
my soul knows there are no chains that hold me
if the father holds me He holds me oh oh (repeat)

VERSE 2
my foe will say you’ve lost the race
you’ve wandered far from home
you don’t deserve another day of grace

i will say you words are right but you forget the rest
the Son was slain and rose against your death

BRIDGE
my past has weighed me down
my sin has brought on death

but he called me his own
and brought me home instead

CHORUS 2
my soul knows, doubts will rise inside me
but my savior will guide me

my soul knows, there are no sins that haunt me
if the father wants me, He wants me

4. SUNKEN PAGES

VERSE
a stone inside enough left for my flesh to hide
curse myself and then the skies I muddle lies and truth

you pulled me out of all my vanity and doubt
but mirrors and questions hang about they blur my sight of you

CHORUS
its harder than I thought it would be

VERSE 2
my best support to sit and see that i am yours
to sit and be your child adored the mist and fog ascends

i read each line but i forget in equal time
the truth you’ve made and sealed as mine i clutch and drop again

VERSE 3
and now i stand on gold with light around my head
i see his face and see his hands my joy is made complete

and now i find that i now can’t recall to mind
the falls and all the tears i cried those books sank in the sea

5. GRACE GREATER

VERSE
Marvelous grace of our loving Lord
Grace that exceeds our sin and our guilt
Over on cal – vary’s mount out poured
there where the blood of the lamb was spilt

VERSE 2
Dark is the stain that we cannot hide Who can succeed to wash it away?
Favor is ours, an unceasing tide Pure as the snow my soul’s been made

CHORUS
Grace, Grace, Oh God’s Grace
Grace that will pardon and cleanse within
Grace, Grace, Oh God’s Grace
Grace that is greater than all our sin

VERSE 3
Sin and despair, like the sea waves cold
threaten the soul with infinite loss
The Son achieved, the good Father’s goal
The Spirit seals, those behind the Cross

6. STRICKEN SMITTEN

VERSE
Stricken, smitten, and afflicted, See Him dy—ing on the tree!
it’s the Christ by man rejected; Yes, my soul, it’s He, it’s He!
It’s the long expected prophet, David’s Son, yet David’s Lord;
By His Son, God now has spoken: He’s the true and faithful Word.

CHORUS
pierced and crushed for our peace
by his wounds we’re healed
the Father gave, His son to save
the Spirit he has sealed

VERSE 2
You who think of sin but lightly, Nor suppose the evil great,
Here may view its nature rightly, Here its guilt may estimate.
Mark the Sacrifice appointed! See Who bears the awful load!
’Tis the Word, the Lord’s Anointed, Son of Man, and Son of God

VERSE 3
Lamb of God for sinners wounded! Sacrifice to cancel guilt!
None shall ever be confounded Who on Him their hope have built.

BRIDGE
Here we have a firm foundation, Here the refuge of the lost.
Christ’s the Rock of our salvation, His the Name of which we boast

7. STRONG TO KEEP

VERSE
the same to save us, is strong to keep
under the care of our good King

no one can take us out from his hand
yet we still fight what wars within

CHORUS
we are quick to stray
you are good to save
keep saving us
we are quick to stray
you are good to save

VERSE 2
His heart is hunting as it gives chase
our sin and doubt can not keep pace
He can awaken that which has died
we are the scent of Life inside

BRIDGE
Breathe out the death and don’t try to keep it in
you’re suffocating the natural sequence
breathe in the life he gives open your mouth again
and let the light pour in He keeps on saving

8. I AM BROKEN (Psalm 102)

VERSE
I am a sparrow, and sitting alone
atop a place that’s not my own

My pain is burning my life an evening
where is my dawn? when can faith be seeing?

CHORUS
These things will not remain
His love remains,
I am broken, but I am hopeful

VERSE 2
I have been lifted I have been shaken
and I crashed down from where I was taken

Your face is hidden your strength delayed
these shortened days now feel suffocating

BRIDGE/OUTRO
these things will not remain
his love remains,
Oh my God, take me not away

 

 

‘THIS MISSING PEACE’ LYRICS – 2009

1. AT THE CROSS

VERSE
We are singing songs of redemption
We are Christ’s possession
Bought with the precious blood
Given us pardon and forgiveness
We are freed to love Him
Bought with the precious blood

CHORUS
At the cross  Wrath was taken away
Christ was in our place
Oh what marvelous grace
At the cross justice was supplied
By the blood of Christ
Forever we will praise

VERSE 2
amazing pity grace made known to me
Love beyond all I conceived
Bought with the precious blood
Righteous now is how he looks at me
Aroma of Christ to God from me
Bought with the precious blood

BRIDGE
Burdens were lifted away
God caused this heart to awake to His glorious grace
Burdens were lifted away
God caused this heart to awake He’s provided a way

2. GET YOU THERE

VERSE 1
things that are small can block out the light
when it is all pressing down, down
tomorrow may call for more than a fight
after it all He is found, found

PRE-CHORUS
Then you hit every red light just as if this was your night

CHORUS
To bring it down and just breathe
The worst it can be hard the best is not that far
so hope now receive the things we can not make
but the things He freely gave
he’ll get you there

VERSE 2
fear has a voice I know you have heard
a head full of noise All that sound, sound

PRE-CHORUS 2
then the day’s already gone
but a lot of love is still ‘round

BRIDGE
You can’t carry it, but you knew that anyway
if you’re scared a bit He is waiting to say

3. KING AND A FRIEND (feat. Robbie Seay)

VERSE
Guard our hearts and all the good That You have set inside
guard the truth and give the sound of Your voice that is life

PRE-CHORUS
it’s time we found our hope in Him
it’s time we made our home in Him

CHORUS
A king and a friend that reaches down
Your voice rings our hearts resound
we believe the king and friend we know
a home for the lost and the broken down
grace you send is sweetly found
we believe the king and friend we know

VERSE 2
He can watch Over the plans He’s made on to the end
He makes claim As maker of The children he defends

BRIDGE
its hard to give it all away
He always, lives out what he says
its hard to give it all away 

4. SOUNDS LIKE HOME

VERSE
wanting more
wanting to breathe under the ocean
cause now it’s so hard
Who is my sole solution

PRE-CHORUS
so new so needed

CHORUS
an echo in my heart from the voice that gave it’s start
sounds like home sounds like home

VERSE 2
writing pages I could not have penned myself
dry and lifeless never have drank You in so well

PRE-CHORUS
so true so repeated

BRIDGE
oh the end of me and the beginning of You

5. NEW

VERSE 1
all the broken, all the pained
He calls us now, calls by name
light is breathed into a darkened soul
oh God hear the tired call

CHORUS
you make new
and soon this love will over it all
here you are
above all you rule over it all
you make new / we are new

VERSE 2
all the weary all the strained
let us love now because he gave
hope is breathed into the anxious soul
oh God calm the anxious soul

BRIDGE
the door is open come and feast
sup with me beside the least
and those you’ve loved along the way
can say they’ve found this missing peace

the earth and heavens soon remade
but here my heart is new today
in you despair is gone
and left a hopeful song in its place

ache is here but soon we’ll know
how all the painful chapters close
and those that call upon the Son
will Spirit seal and Father hold

death and sin have lost its true
you call to those that turn from you
if we were buried with a king
then we will rise and sing then too
we will rise and sing, because you make new

6. AFTER THE FADE

VERSE
time and space
have been traced
by a perfect hand

CHORUS
when that blazing star grows dim
and night goes away
we will see ourselves round him
after the fade
we will see the face
of him in this place
oh, bring the day, Jesus bring the day

VERSE 2

every thread and vein you’ve said
my newness is planned

BRIDGE
shadows cold has gone away
oh our souls tremble when you say
you are coming back
after the fade
