NOTHING'S GONNA STOP US

Every journey needs a first step to start
Every fire grows from a single spark
A great symphony begins with just one note
One voice can give the whole world hope
There’s no impossible, nothing we can’t face
The tallest mountains are moved by a seed of faith
Come together, don’t you know that you’re not alone

We will rise up
For the kingdom come
Lay down our lives
For the sake of love
If God’s with us
We know that
Nothing’s gonna stop us
Nothing’s gonna stop us

He has called you, to all the places you’ll go
He’s the author of every dream that you hold
Come together, don’t you know that the time is now
The time is now

We will, rise up
For the kingdom come
Lay down, our lives
For the sake of love
If God’s with us
We know that
Nothing’s gonna stop us

No height, no depth
Could ever keep us from the love of God, I know, I know
No life, no death
Could ever separate us from the love of God, I’m sure

We will, rise up
For the kingdom come
Lay down, our lives
For the sake of love
If God’s with us
We know that
Nothing’s gonna stop us

SEE WHAT A MORNING

Stuart Townend and Keith Getty

See what a morning, gloriously bright
With the dawning of hope in Jerusalem
Folded the grave-clothes; tomb filled with light
As the angels announce, "Christ is risen"
See God's salvation plan
Wrought in love, borne in pain, paid in sacrifice
Fulfilled in Christ the Man
For He lives; Christ is risen from the dead

See Mary weeping, "Where is He laid?"
As in sorrow she turns from the empty tomb
Hears a voice speaking, calling her name
It's the Master, the Lord raised to life again
The voice that spans the years
Speaking life, stirring hope, bringing peace to us
Will sound till He appears
For He lives; Christ is risen from the dead

One with the Father, Ancient of Days
Through the Spirit who clothes faith with certainty
Honor and blessing, glory and praise
To the King crowned with power and authority
And we are raised with Him
Death is dead; love has won; Christ has conquered
And we shall reign with Him
For He lives; Christ is risen from the dead

HIS HAND IN MINE

Mosie Lister

You may ask me how I know my Lord is real
You may doubt the things I say and doubt the way I feel
But I know He's real today, He'll always be
I can feel His hand in mine and that's enough for me.

I will never walk alone, He holds my hand,
He will guide each step I take and if I fall I know he understands.
'Til the day He tells me why He loves me so,
I can feel His hand in mine that's all I need to know.

Other friends that I love so may pass me by
Other friends may never see the teardrops in my eyes
Other friends may never know that pain I bear
Every tear He wipes away and every heartache shares

I will never walk alone, He holds my hand,
He will guide each step I take and if I fall I know he understands.
When the time shall come to leave this world behind,
I will walk that lonesome valley with His hand in mine.

EVERYTHING I NEED

 Dave Lubben and Jon Micah Sumrall

When every step is so hard to take
And all of my hope is fading away
When life is a mountain that I cannot climb
You carry me, Jesus, carry me.

You are strength in my weakness
You are the refuge I seek
You are everything in my time of need
You are everything, You are everything I need

When every moment is more than I can take
And all of my strength is slipping away
When every breath gets harder to breathe
You carry me, Jesus, carry me

You are strength in my weakness
You are the refuge I seek
You are everything in my time of need
You are everything, You are everything I need

SOMEBODY DIED FOR ME

He was a troubled kid in and out of jail
When his daddy said this is the last time I’ll pay bail
He enlisted in the army and they sent him to Iraq
He was a different man when he came back
Somebody said the army must’ve whipped you into shape
But he said that’s not the reason that I’ve changed

Somebody died for me
Before I even asked for help
Gave his life for me
When I couldn’t save myself
I cannot live the way I lived or be the way I was
Every day’s a gift to me because
Somebody died for me

Now they fold the flag and attach a silver star
While the grieving mother leans against his arm
Then he stands before the family and does his best to tell
How he survived the night his best friend fell
He says no one who knew him was surprised he died that way
He tried to live for Jesus, oh, he always used to say

Somebody died for me
Before I even asked for help
Gave his life for me
When I couldn’t save myself
I cannot live the way I lived or be the way I was
Every day’s a gift to me because
Somebody died for me

And I don’t wanna waste a moment
Of the time I have left
With every breath I’m given
God, help me not forget

Somebody died for me
Before I even asked for help
Gave his life for me
When I couldn’t save myself
I cannot live the way I lived or be the way I was
Every day’s a gift to me because
Somebody died for me

AFTER ALL

Author Unknown 

In this life my trials are many
And sometimes my feet grow weary
And it seems that I would stumble and almost fall
But the gentle hand that leads me
Is the hand that keeps me steady
Give me grace that I will make it after all

After all this life is over
And my labor here is ended
And I climb upon the mountain top so tall
Looking over in the City
That my Savior is preparing
Give me grace that I will make it after all

By myself I cannot make it
But I know He's there to help me
If to Him in earnest prayer I keep on call
"Keep on trusting and believing"
Are the words I hear Him whisper
Just a few more days to labor after all

After all this life is over
And my labor here is ended
And I climb upon the mountain top so tall
Looking over in the City
That my Savior is preparing
Give me grace that I will make it after all

PAID IN FULL

Mitch Hunter

See our Savior hung between two thieves.
Hear the soldiers mock His name.
See His followers as they cry in disbelief,
This could not be the reason why He came.
See Him realize His life is through.
And see the love burn from His eyes.
Behold the temple veil as it is torn in two.
And hear the One on Calvary as He cries

Paid in full, I've done the work I came to do.
Paid in full, I've paid love's final price for you.
When all hell tries to tell you that you'll never win,
Just remember that the debt for your sin is paid in full.

See His children torn between two ways.
Some still choose to mock His name.
Hear His followers now as they can boldly say,
We are the reason that He came.
See the ones who trust themselves alone,
To do what only Christ can do.
Through Jesus' blood alone we may approach the Father's throne,
And hear the words that He still calls to you

Paid in full, I've done the work I came to do.
Paid in full, I've paid love's final price for you.
When all hell tries to tell you that you'll never win,
Just remember that the debt for your sin is paid in full.

FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS

Wayne Watson

Now, all I have is now
To be faithful
To be holy
And to shine lighting up the darkness
Right now, I really have no choice
But to voice the truth to the nations
A generation looking for God

For such a time as this
I was placed upon the earth
To hear the voice of God
And do His will
Whatever it is
For such a time as this
For now and all the days He gives
I am here, I am here
And I am His
For such a time as this

You, Do you ever wonder why?
Seems like the grass is always greener
Under everybody else's sky
But right here, right here for this time and place
You can live a mirror of His mercy
A forgiven image of grace

For such a time as this
I was placed upon the earth
To hear the voice of God
And do His will
Whatever it is
For such a time as this
For now and all the days He gives
I am here, I am here
And I am His
For such a time as this

Can't change what's happened till now
But we can change what will be
By living in holiness
That the world will see Jesus

For such a time as this
I was placed upon the earth
To hear the voice of God
And do His will
Whatever it is
For such a time as this
For now and all the days He gives
I am here, I am here
And I am His
For such a time as this

LAY DOWN MY LIFE

All your pain
Will be made mine
All your troubles
The tears you cry
Give it up
All that binds
I will place it on my shoulders
And up this hill I’ll climb
Father, give me strength
I know there is no other way

I lay down my life for you
This is the moment when all will be made new
I know that you don’t understand
But this is part of a greater plan
So I lay down my life for you

This is love
That had to bleed
To bring you mercy
To set you free
You are mine
I am yours
And I will wear your burdens
Just like this crown of thorns
I will take your place
I know there is no other way

I lay down my life for you
This is the moment when all will be made new
I know that you don’t understand
But this is part of a greater plan
And I lay down my life for you

Give me all your pride
Give me all your fears
Give me all your secrets
Give me all your tears
Give me all you doubt
Give me all your shame
Watch them wash away
Watch them wash away
In Jesus’ name

I lay down my life for you
This is the moment when all will be made new
I know that you don’t understand
But this is part of a greater plan
And I lay down my life for you
Though I know that you don’t understand
These scars are part of a greater plan
And I lay down my life for you

Arms stretched out
Upon this tree
To show true love
To set you free

I FOUND GRACE

Roger Bennett

I sought for wisdom in the ways of this world
But no wisdom could be found
I sought for meaning in the words of great men
But their words just let me down
Not seeking justice for the things that I'd done
My soul needed mercy, and I found it in God's Son

Oh, I found grace
Grace at the foot of a rugged cross on Calvary
I found grace
Grace with the awesome power to set the captive free
I found grace – sustaining grace
So much grace – redeeming grace
Yes, I found grace, fulfilling grace,
Indwelling grace, His loving grace
Yes, I found grace, amazing grace to meet my needs

Give up the search; it's a useless dream you're chasing
You'll find no peace until you seek His face
The answer's right before you at the foot of the cross
You'll find that it's a holy place
Confess your sins, and lay them all down
Pick up your cross; let Jesus turn your life around

Oh, I found grace
Grace at the foot of a rugged cross on Calvary
I found grace
Grace with the awesome power to set the captive free
I found grace – sustaining grace
So much grace – redeeming grace
Yes, I found grace, fulfilling grace,
Indwelling grace, His loving grace
Yes, I found grace, amazing grace to meet my needs

REMEMBER

Laura Story

This is the body that was torn for us
This is the blood that was spilt
Points to the pain You endured for us
Points to the shame, the blame, the guilt

Father, Son and Holy Spirit, come
Move our hearts to remember

This is the Lamb who was slain for us
So we the church may enter in
So bitter sweet when we think of You
The One who bore our curse, our sin

Father, Son and Holy Spirit, come
Move our hearts to remember, to remember

Father, Son and Holy Spirit, come
Father, Son and Holy Spirit, come
Move our hearts to remember

MY NEW DAWN

Matt Bronleewe, Ashley Gorley and Chris Fauen

Hiding in the midnight
I've watched life pass me by
Haunted by each heartbreak
And mistake I've let weigh me down
Now it feels like

This is my new dawn
My yesterdays have come and gone
Walked in the dark too long
This is my new, this is my new dawn

I've washed my hands now
I've laid down all my doubt
I see that sun rising, baptizing
And shining straight into my soul

This is my new dawn
My yesterdays have come and gone
Walked in the dark too long
This is my new, this is my new dawn

Just like a child
Suddenly everything's new
The colors collide
And I see a beautiful view
Now I feel alive

This is my new dawn
My yesterdays have come and gone
Walked in the dark too long
This is my new, this is my new dawn
