WE STILL HAVE TO PRAY

Rodney Griffin

One day Isaac came with a burden
The son of promise had a heavy heart
You see, the wife God gave him was barren
He prayed, "Lord, is this your plan after all?"

Even when we're in God's will, we still must pray
Even while we hold His hand, we have to wait
In time, He will show the perfect way
Even when we're in God's will,
We still have to pray.

Isaac turned to his love, Rebekah
And said, "I've prayed, and God will be true."
Very soon came Esau and Jacob
The seed of hope that reaches me and you.

Even when we're in God's will, we still must pray
Even while we hold His hand, we have to wait
In time, He will show the perfect way
Even when we're in God's will,
We still have to pray.

You're wishing that the Lord
Would show you what's in store,
But He loves you way too much
To let you lose your faith's reward.
So stop and seek His face
Rest in His embrace
Tell Him that you trust Him
When you talk to Him today.

Even when we're in God's will, we still must pray
Even while we hold His hand, we have to wait
In time, He will show the perfect way
Even when we're in God's will,
We still have to pray.

THE WELL

John Mark Hall

I have what you need,
But you keep on searchin',
I've done all the work,
But you keep on workin',
When you're runnin' on empty,
And you can't find the remedy,
Just come to the well.

You can spend your whole life,
Chasin' what's missing,
But that empty inside,
It just ain't gonna listen.
When nothing can satisfy,
And the world leaves you high and dry,
Just come to the well

And all who thirst will thirst no more,
And all who search will find what their souls long for,
The world will try, but it can never fill,
So leave it all behind, and come to the well


So bring me your heart
No matter how broken,
Just come as you are,
When your last prayer is spoken,
Just rest in my arms a while,
You'll feel the change my child,
When you come to the well

And all who thirst will thirst no more,
And all who search will find what their souls long for,
The world will try, but it can never fill,
So leave it all behind, and come to the well

And now that you're full,
Of love beyond measure,
Your joy's gonna flow,
Like a stream in the desert,
Soon all the world will see that living water is found in me,
Cuz you came to the well

And all who thirst will thirst no more,
And all who search will find what their souls long for,
The world will try, but it can never fill,
So leave it all behind, and come to the well

HERE I GO AGAIN

Mark Hall

Father, hear my prayer
I need the perfect words
Words that he will hear
And know they're straight from You
I don't know what to say
I only know it hurts
To see my only friend slowly fade away

So maybe this time I'll speak the words of life
With Your fire in my eyes
But that old familiar fear is tearing at my words
What am I so afraid of?

'Cause here I go again
Talkin 'bout the rain
And mulling over things that won't live past today
And as I dance around the truth
Time is not his friend
This might be my last chance to tell him
That You love Him
But here I go again, here I go again

Lord, You love him so, You gave Your only Son
If he will just believe; he will never die
But how then will he know what he has never heard
Lord, he has never seen mirrored in my life

So maybe this time I'll speak the words of life
With Your fire in my eyes
But that old familiar fear is tearing at my words
What am I so afraid of?

'Cause here I go again
Talkin 'bout the rain
And mulling over things that won't live past today
And as I dance around the truth
Time is not his friend
This might be my last chance to tell him
That You love Him
But here I go again, here I go again

TAKE IT ALL

Mac Powell

All the promises I've broken
All the times I've let you down
You've forgotten them
But still I hold on to the pain that makes me drown
Now I'm ready
To let it go
To give it away

Take it all
'Cause I can't take it any longer
All I have, I can't make it on my own
Take the first, take the last
Take the good and take the rest
Here I am, all I have
Take it all

All the roads that lie before me
All the struggles I go through
Every second I'm reminded
That it all belongs to you
Now I'm ready
To let it go
To give it away

Take it all
'Cause I can't take it any longer
All I have, I can't make it on my own
Take the first, take the last
Take the good and take the rest
Here I am, all I have
Take it all

Ever since I died to myself
You gave a better life to me
I give you my finest moment
I give you the last breath I breathe

Take it all
'Cause I can't take it any longer
All I have, I can't make it on my own
Take the first, take the last
Take the good and take the rest
Here I am, all I have
Take it all

HOLD MY HEART

Jason Ingram, Phillip LaRue, Michael Donehey

How long must I pray
Must I pray to You?
How long must I wait
Must I wait for You?
How long till I see Your face
See You shining through?

I'm on my knees
Begging You to notice me
I'm on my knees
Father, will You turn to me

One tear in the driving rain
One voice in a sea of pain
Could the maker of the stars
Hear the sound of my breaking heart?
One life, that's all I am
Right now, I can barely stand
If You're everything You say You are
Would You come close and hold my heart?

I've been so afraid, afraid to close my eyes
So much can slip away before I say goodbye
But if there's no other way
I'm done asking why

'Cause I'm on my knees
Begging You to notice me
I'm on my knees
Father, will You run to me, yeah

One tear in the driving rain
One voice in a sea of pain
Could the maker of the stars
Hear the sound of my breaking heart?
One life, that's all I am
Right now, I can barely stand
If You're everything You say You are
Would You come close and hold my heart?

So many questions without answers
Your promises remain
I can't see but I'll take my chances
To hear you call my name
To hear you call my name

One tear in the driving rain
One voice in a sea of pain
Could the maker of the stars
Hear the sound of my breaking heart?
One life, that's all I am
Right now, I can barely stand
If You're everything You say You are
Would You come close and hold my heart?

LORD, I NEED YOU

Jesse Reeves, Kristian Stanfill, Matt Maher, Christy Nockels and Daniel Carson

Lord, I come, I confess
Bowing here, I find my rest
Without You, I fall apart
You're the One that guides my heart

Lord, I need You, oh, I need You
Every hour I need You
My one defense, my righteousness
Oh, God, how I need You

Where sin runs deep, Your grace is more
Where grace is found is where You are
And where You are, Lord, I am free
Holiness is Christ in me

Lord, I need You, oh, I need You
Every hour I need You
My one defense, my righteousness
Oh, God, how I need You

Teach my song to rise to You
When temptation comes my way
And when I cannot stand, I'll fall on You
Jesus, You're my hope and stay

Lord, I need You, oh, I need You
Every hour I need You
My one defense, my righteousness
Oh, God, how I need You

THE SPACE IN BETWEEN US

Jason Roy and Jim Cooper

Look at my heart again
Look at the mess I've got it in
I'm learning to trust in You
To know that you'll see me
Through my pride
Through my shame
Into Your love
Into Your grace
I'm not looking back
Till I see Your face
I'm running straight to You

All I really want to do is to fall into
The emptiness that is
The space in-between us
To break this division
All I really want to do is to fall into
The emptiness that is
The space in-between us
Erase it and bring us together again

My life's an open book
Nothing is hidden when You look
You break through my boundaries
Revealing my insecurities
But through my pride
And through my shame
You show me love
You show me grace
I'm not looking back
Till I see your face
I'm running straight to you
Because . . .

All I really want to do is to fall into
The emptiness that is
The space in-between us
To break this division
All I really want to do is to fall into
The emptiness that is
The space in-between us
Erase it and bring us together again
Together again

Here I am saying I need you
I know I need you
Here I am; I'm coming to meet you
'Cause I want to see you

All I really want to do is to fall into
The emptiness that is
The space in-between us
All I really want to do is to fall into
The emptiness that is
The space in-between us
Erase it and bring us together

ALL THE WAY MY SAVIOR LEADS ME

Originally written by Fanny Crosby
Revised by Matt Redman & Chris Tomlin

All the way my Savior leads me;
Who have I to ask beside?
How could I doubt His tender mercy,
Who through life has been my guide?

All the way my Savior leads me;
Cheers each winding path I tread,
Gives me grace for every trial,
Feeds me with the living Bread.

You lead me and keep me from falling.
You carry me close to Your heart.
And surely Your goodness and
Mercy will follow me.

All the way my Savior leads me;
O, the fullness of His love!
O, the sureness of His promise
In the triumph of His blood!

And when my spirit clothed immortal
Wings its flight to realms of day,
This my song through endless ages:
Jesus led me all the way!
Jesus led me all the way!

You lead me and keep me from falling.
You carry me close to Your heart.
And surely Your goodness and
Mercy will follow me.

All the way my Savior leads me.
All the way my Savior leads me.

FALL APART

Josh Wilson and Jeff Pardo

Why in the world did I think I could
Only get to know you when my life was good?
When everything just falls in place
The easiest thing is to give you praise
Now it all seems upside down

'Cause my whole world is caving in
But I feel you now more than I did then
How can I come to the end of me
But somehow still have all I need?
God, I want to know you more
Maybe this is how it starts
I find you when I fall apart

Blessed are the ones who understand
They've got nothing to bring but empty hands
Nothing to hide and nothing to prove
Our heartbreak brings us back to you
And it all seems upside down

'Cause my whole world is caving in
But I feel you now more than I did then
How can I come to the end of me
But somehow still have all I need?
God, I want to know you more
Maybe this is how it starts
I find you when I fall apart

I don't know how long this will last
I'm praying for the pain to pass
But maybe this is the best thing
That has ever happened to me

My whole world is caving in
But I feel you now more than I did then
How can I come to the end of me
But somehow still have all I need?
God, I want to know you more
Maybe this is how it starts
I find you when--
You will find me when--
I fall apart

WORN

Jason Ingram, Jeff Owen and Mike Donehey

I’m tired, I’m worn
My heart is heavy
From the work it takes
To keep on breathing
I’ve made mistakes
I’ve let my hope fail
My soul feels crushed
By the weight of this world
And I know that You can give me rest
So I cry out with all that I have left

Let me see redemption win
Let me know the struggle ends
That You can mend a heart
That’s frail and torn
I wanna know a song can rise
From the ashes of a broken life
And all that’s dead inside can be reborn
Cause I’m worn

I know I need to lift my eyes up
But I'm too weak
Life just won’t let up
And I know that You can give me rest
So I cry out with all that I have left

Let me see redemption win
Let me know the struggle ends
That You can mend a heart
That’s frail and torn
I wanna know a song can rise
From the ashes of a broken life
And all that’s dead inside can be reborn
Cause I’m worn

My prayers are wearing thin
Yeah, I’m worn
Even before the day begins
Yeah, I’m worn
I’ve lost my will to fight
I’m worn
So, Heaven, come and flood my eyes

Let me see redemption win
Let me know the struggle ends
That You can mend a heart
That’s frail and torn
I wanna know a song can rise
From the ashes of a broken life
And all that’s dead inside can be reborn
Cause all that’s dead inside will be reborn
