FLAWLESS

Barry Graul / Bart Millard / Ben Glover / David Arthur Garcia / Mike Scheuchzer / Nathan Cochran / Robby Shaffer / Solomon Olds

There’s got to be more than going back and forth
From doing right to doing wrong
‘Cause we were taught that’s who we are
Come on get in line right behind me
You along with everybody
Thinking there’s worth in what you do

Then like a hero who takes the stage when
We’re on the edge of our seats saying it’s too late
Well, let me introduce you to amazing grace
No matter the bumps; no matter the bruises
No matter the scars; still the truth is
The cross has made, the cross has made you flawless
No matter the hurt, or how deep the wound is
No matter the pain; still the truth is
The cross has made, the cross has made you flawless

Could it possibly be that we simply can’t believe
That this unconditional kind of love would be enough
To take a filthy wretch like this and wrap him up in righteousness
But that’s exactly what He did

No matter the bumps; no matter the bruises
No matter the scars; still the truth is
The cross has made, the cross has made you flawless
No matter the hurt, or how deep the wound is
No matter the pain; still the truth is
The cross has made, the cross has made you flawless

Take a breath smile and say
Right here right now I’m ok
Because the cross was enough

And like a hero who takes the stage when
We’re on the edge of our seats saying it’s too late
Well, let me introduce you to grace, grace, God’s grace

No matter the bumps; no matter the bruises
No matter the scars; still the truth is
The cross has made, the cross has made you flawless
No matter the hurt, or how deep the wound is
No matter the pain; still the truth is
The cross has made, the cross has made you flawless

No matter what they say
Or what you think you are
The day you called His name
He made you flawless
He made you flawless

GREAT THINGS

Author?

Peter and John saw while walking along
A lame man begging alms by the gate
Straightway they told, “We’ve no silver or gold,
But for you a great treasure awaits.”
Now such as I have give I thee
In the name of the Lord, rise up and walk”
And be not amazed that a crippled was raised
It’s through Jesus we do great things.

Great things are in store for the child of the Lord
When he walks with the King of Kings
And each word that you say
When you kneel down to pray
Will be carried on the backs of angel's wings.
When you walk with Jesus,
You’re going to do great things.

Now we have big dreams when we’re younger
It seems of a life where we do great things.
But life finds a way of taking our dreams away
When our plans unravel at the seams.
And though you feel small in God’s eyes
You’ll stand tall if your footsteps are faithful and true
For the same power that raised Lazarus up from the grave
Is the same power Jesus gives to you.

Great things are in store for the child of the Lord
When he walks with the King of Kings
And each word that you say
When you kneel down to pray
Will be carried on the backs of angel's wings.
When you walk with Jesus,
You’re going to do great things.

I won’t worry if I’m never famous,
Or for those worldly pleasures I’ve missed.
For Jesus gave me sweet peace like a river.
Tell me what could be greater than this?

Great things are in store for the child of the Lord
When he walks with the King of Kings
And each word that you say
When you kneel down to pray
Will be carried on the backs of angel's wings.
When you walk with Jesus,
You’re going to do great things.

SPIRIT WIND

Mark Hall and Jason Hoard

Ezekiel stared down into the valley
Filled with dry bones baking in the sun
Remains that used to be a mighty army
To him, it looked like their fighting days were done
But driven by a calling on his life
He spoke God's words, the bones began to shake
He stared wide-eyed as the flesh began to form
And as he prophesied to the wind
The soldiers began to wake

And the Lord sent His wind into the valley
And breathed the breath of life into their souls
And raised them again a mighty army
For soon these arisen warriors will battle again
For they have been filled with the Spirit Wind
Woah, woah, woah...

A pastor stands before his congregation
Once a mighty army for the Lord
But now he stares into the lifeless eyes
Believers leading carnal lives
He wonders what they're fighting for
But driven by a calling on his life
He spoke God's word like he'd done a hundred times before
But this time he comes broken and weeping
With tears of a broken heart
And he cries out to the Lord

Oh, Lord, send Your wind into this valley
And breathe the breath of life into their souls
And raise them again a mighty army
For soon these arisen warriors will battle again
For they have been filled with the Spirit Wind
Woah, woah, woah...

Holy Spirit, breathe on me
Breathe Your life in me

Oh, Lord, send Your wind into this valley
And breathe the breath of life into our souls
And raise us again a mighty army
For soon these arisen warriors will battle again
For we have been filled with the Spirit Wind
Woah, woah, woah...

Oh, Lord, we need You now
Breathe Your life into us
Lord, we need You now
Our churches and our families
Oh, Lord, we need You now
Breathe life into this dry and weary land
Raise us up again

EVEN IF

Bart Marshall Millard / Benjamin Glover / Crystal Lewis / David Arthur Garcia / Tim Timmons

They say sometimes you win some
Sometimes you lose some
And right now, right now I'm losing bad
I've stood on this stage night after night
Reminding the broken it'll be alright
But right now, oh right now, I just can't
It's easy to sing
When there's nothing to bring me down
But what will I say
When I'm held to the flame
Like I am right now

I know You're able and I know You can
Save through the fire with Your mighty hand
But even if You don't
My hope is You alone

They say it only takes a little faith
To move a mountain
Well good thing
A little faith is all I have, right now
But God, when You choose
To leave mountains unmovable
Oh give me the strength to be able to sing
It is well with my soul

I know You're able and I know You can
Save through the fire with Your mighty hand
But even if You don't
My hope is You alone
I know the sorrow, and I know the hurt
Would all go away if You'd just say the word
But even if You don't
My hope is You alone

You've been faithful, You've been good
All of my days, Jesus, I will cling to You
Come what may

‘Cause I know You're able and I know You can
Save through the fire with Your mighty hand
But even if You don't
My hope is You alone
I know the sorrow, I know the hurt
Would all go away if You'd just say the word
But even if You don't
My hope is You alone

It is well with my soul
It is well, it is well with my soul

ORPHANS OF GOD

Joel Lindsey & Twila McBride

Who here among us has not been broken?
Who here among us is without guilt or pain?
So oft' abandoned by our transgressions;
If such a thing as grace exists,
Then grace was made for lives like this

There are no strangers
There are no outcasts
There are no orphans of God
So many fallen, but hallelujah
There are no orphans of God

Come ye unwanted and find affection
Come all ye weary, come and lay down your head
Come ye unworthy, you are my brother
If such a thing as grace exists
Then grace was made for lives like this

There are no strangers
There are no outcasts
There are no orphans of God
So many fallen, but hallelujah
There are no orphans of God

O blessed Father, look down upon us
We are Your children, we need Your love
We run before Your throne of mercy
And seek Your face to rise above

There are no strangers
There are no outcasts
There are no orphans of God
So many fallen, but hallelujah
There are no orphans of God

IN HIS TIME

Author?

Mary and Martha stood by the grave
And they wondered why their Master had delayed.
For they knew if He’d been there in answer to their cry,
Their dear brother Lazarus would not have died.

It was four days before Jesus through Bethany passed by
And there He found them with tears in their eyes,
And with the tender compassion and the sound of His voice,
He commanded the stone away, and Lazarus came forth.

In His time He will answer; in His time He will hear.
It may be today He’ll walk through your Bethany.
So don’t lose your faith though your patience be tried;
Your answer may seem delayed but your prayer’s not denied.

The trial that you’re facing may be a child who’s gone astray
Or it may be a loved one who’s never found their way
Or it could be a problem that matters just to you.
God will hear the prayer you pray and here’s what He’ll do.

In His time He will answer; in His time He will hear.
It may be today He’ll walk through your Bethany.
So don’t lose your faith though your patience be tried;
Your answer may seem delayed but your prayer’s not denied.

ALL THINGS WORK TOGETHER

 Ricky Perkins and Daniel Riley

Many times we are surrounded
By waves of defeat
Struggling for the right moves,
Falling to much grief
Nevertheless the foundation
Of God's stand is sure
Having the seal so He wills
All things for our good

All things work together
For the good to them that love the Lord
Who are called to His purpose
Who are trusting in His Word
Day by day, hour by hour
We're seeking not our own desire
For all things work together
For the good to them who love the Lord

Satan, like a roaring lion,
Roaming to and fro
Seeking those he may devour
The Word of God says so
Many souls have fallen prey
To old Satan's cunning ways
Clothed in God's great armor,
We lift our voice and say

All things work together
For the good to them that love the Lord
Who are called to His purpose
Who are trusting in His Word
Day by day, hour by hour
We're seeking not our own desire
For all things work together
For the good to them who love the Lord

WHO KNOWS TOMORROW

Author?

Every day brings new light upon my pillow
What circumstance will I face along the way?
Will I find the situation I have no control?
Will I find the certain need to bow and pray?
For I can’t change the path of fate
That life may throw my way
And I may not always seem to understand
But I hold to a promise from the One who can
And without doubt, I’ll trust the One through each tomorrow.

Who knows tomorrow?
What will it hold?
Will I trod through a land I do not know?
No need to worry (No need to worry)
For He’s in control
And I’ll lean on the One who knows tomorrow.

Do you find every day you start to worry
When the storms of life seem to roll your way?
Do you find the burdens of this life too heavy
And when they fall it seems no place to escape?
Oh, but I can introduce you to the One who really cares
It’s okay. You can come just as you are
You can bring all your burdens, He alone will bear
And you can lean on the One who knows tomorrow

Who knows tomorrow?
What will it hold?
Will I trod through a land I do not know?
No need to worry (No need to worry)
For He’s in control
And I’ll lean on the One who knows tomorrow.

HE TOUCHED ME

William J. Gaither

Shackled by a heavy burden,
'Neath a load of guilt and shame.
Then the hand of Jesus touched me,
And now I am no longer the same.

He touched me, Oh, He touched me,
And, oh, the joy that floods my soul!
Something happened and now I know,
He touched me and made me whole.

Since I met this blessed Savior,
Since He cleansed and made me whole,
I will never cease to praise Him,
I'll shout it while eternity rolls.

He touched me, Oh, He touched me,
And, oh, the joy that floods my soul!
Something happened and now I know,
He touched me and made me whole.

HE WELCOMES THE BEGGAR

Author?

He laid by the gate, begging the rich man for bread
Sores on his skin; some said he's better off dead
And when that day came, Lazarus closed his eyes
Carried by angels to Abraham's side

Oh, what a moment when everything changes
Imagine the glory, the sound of the praises
When God in His riches, He lavishes treasure
And into His kingdom, He welcomes the beggar.

To all of the poor, the bruised, the broken like me
There is a hope for the desperate, the lonely and weak.
There's a day coming, I'm telling you now,
We'll trade all our sorrows for our glorious crown.

Oh, what a moment when everything changes
Imagine the glory, the sound of the praises
When God in His riches, He lavishes treasure
And into His kingdom, He welcomes the beggar.

Blessed are the poor in spirit,
For theirs is the kingdom of Heaven.

Oh, what a moment when everything changes
Imagine the glory, the sound of the praises
When God in His riches, He lavishes treasure
And into His kingdom, He welcomes the beggar.

SO CLOSE TO HOME

Daryl K. Williams

I like the joy His praises bring,
I love the sound of angel wings,
It makes me feel so close to home.
I like to see the smiling face
On a sinner saved by grace,
It makes me feel so close to home.

Call me foolish, call me strange,
I just love to speak His name
On bended knee, then suddenly
I am not alone.
When I speak, "Jesus,"
I feel the glory from the throne,
And it makes me feel so close to home.

I like to break the bread of life,
His words are such a welcome sight,
They make me feel so close to home.
While I walk in a stranger's land
I feel a gentle loving hand
That makes me feel so close to home.

Call me foolish, call me strange,
I just love to speak His name
On bended knee, then suddenly
I am not alone.
When I speak, "Jesus,"
I feel the glory from the throne,
And it makes me feel so close to home.

THE MOTIONS

Jason Houser, Sam Mizell, Matthew West

This might hurt
It’s not safe
But I know that I’ve gotta make a change
I don’t care
If I break
At least I’ll be feeling something
‘Cause just ok
Is not enough
Help me fight through the nothingness of life

I don’t wanna go through the motions
I don’t wanna go one more day
Without Your all consuming passion inside of me
I don’t wanna spend my whole life asking
What if I had given everything?
Instead of going through the motions

No regrets
Not this time
I’m gonna let my heart defeat my mind
Let Your love
Make me whole
I think I’m finally feeling something
‘Cause just ok
Is not enough
Help me fight through the nothingness of life

I don’t wanna go through the motions
I don’t wanna go one more day
Without Your all consuming passion inside of me
I don’t wanna spend my whole life asking
What if I had given everything?
Instead of going through the motions

FOUR DAYS LATE

Aaron Wilburn 

The news came to Jesus "Please come fast.
Lazarus is sick and without Your help, He will not last."
Mary and Martha watched their brother die
They waited for Jesus- He didn't come. They wondered why.

The death watch was over; Buried four days.
Somebody said, "He'll soon be here. The Lord's on His way."
Martha ran to Him, and then she cried,
"Lord if You had been here, You could have healed him. He'd still be alive.

But You're four days late, and all hope is gone.
Lord, we don't understand why You've waited so long."
But His way is God's way. It's not yours or mine
But isn't it great when He's four days late, He's still on time!

Jesus said, "Martha, show Me the grave."
But she said, "Lord You don't understand, He's been there four days!"
The grave stone was rolled back. Then Jesus cried,
"Lazarus! Come forth!" Then somebody said, "He's ALIVE! He's ALIVE!"

Now you may be fighting a battle of fear
You've cried to the Lord "I need You now!" but He has not appeared.
My friend, don't be discouraged 'cause He's still the same.
He'll be right here. He'll roll back your stone, And He'll call out your name!

When He's four days late, and all hope is gone
Lord, we don't understand why You've waited so long.
But His way is God's way. It's not yours or mine
But isn't it great when He's four days late, He's still on time!

TELL IT TO JESUS

Are you weary, are you heavy hearted?
Tell it to Jesus, tell it to Jesus.
Are you grieving over joys departed?
Tell it to Jesus alone.


Do the tears flow down your cheeks unbidden?
Tell it to Jesus, tell it to Jesus.
Have you sins that to men’s eyes are hidden?
Tell it to Jesus alone.



Tell it to Jesus, tell it to Jesus,
He is a Friend that’s well known.
You’ve no other such a friend or brother,
Tell it to Jesus alone.

Do you fear the gathering clouds of sorrow?
Tell it to Jesus, tell it to Jesus.
Are you anxious what shall be tomorrow?
Tell it to Jesus alone.


Are you troubled at the thought of dying?
Tell it to Jesus, tell it to Jesus.
For Christ’s coming kingdom are you sighing?
Tell it to Jesus alone.



Tell it to Jesus, tell it to Jesus,

You’ve no other such a friend or brother,

MAKE WAY FOR THE MASTER

Brian Alvey

Bartimaeus was sitting by the roadside begging
His hands were extended in need
He had little hope of escaping his life
A blind beggar was all he would be
He heard a commotion; people had gathered
Someone said Jesus was nigh
He cried, "Son of David, have mercy on me"
And by his faith was given his sight

Make way for the Master; Jesus is passing by
Call out His name; He will bring new life
In Him is the blessed hope for all men
That brings us from darkness to light
Your faith can make you whole today
For the Master is passing by
Yes, the Master is passing by

I had wondered in darkness, like a blind man begging
In search for a glimpse of the light
Waking each morning with fear and despair
Still haunted by shadows of night
Then one day a preacher talked of a Savior and
Someone took me by the hand
I cried out for mercy, and He came to me
In a moment my new life began

Make way for the Master; Jesus is passing by
Call out his name; He will bring new life
In Him is the blessed hope for all men
That brings us from darkness to light
Your faith can make you whole today
For the Master is passing by
Yes the Master is passing by

You can know what it means to live free today
Hold his hand and claim your victory
Jesus is passing your way

Make way for the Master; Jesus is passing by
Call out his name; He will bring new life
In Him is the blessed hope for all men
That brings us from darkness to light
Your faith can make you whole today
For the Master is passing by
Yes the Master is passing by

JESUS LOVES YOU

Sheri Easter, Don Poythress and Kenna Turner

When you feel forgotten
When you feel you're all alone
When you feel like giving up
When you feel discouraged and everything's uncertain
When you feel you're just not good enough
When it's slipping through your hands
And you've done all you can
There's still so much more to do
It's easy to forget in times like this. . .

Jesus loves you
Jesus loves you
And He cares about everything you're going through
Your name is engraved on the palm of his hands
And that's a promise you can hold onto
It's easy to forget in times like this
Jesus loves you.

When the funeral is over and the casseroles are gone
And you're about as broken as can be
When the sun ain't shining and nights are just too long
And the weight of it all drives you to your knees
I've been where you are when God just seems so far
And I needed to be reminded too
It's easy to forget in times like this. . .

Jesus loves you
Jesus loves you
And He cares about everything you're going through
Your name is engraved on the palm of his hands
And that's a promise you can hold onto
It's easy to forget in times like this
Jesus loves you.

LIGHT FROM HEAVEN

Tom Hayes

You’re in the darkness, your soul is reaching
For any promise you can hold on to
But soon you’ll see just what God is teaching
The light from Heaven will come breaking through

For the sun is always shining
Though the clouds may hide its view
You may not see a silver lining
But any day now, someway and somehow
The light from Heaven will come breaking through

Your spirit’s heavy, your heart is broken
And you’ve forgotten that the sky is blue
Just weep before Him, the door will open
The light from Heaven will come breaking through

For the sun is always shining
Though the clouds may hide its view
You may not see a silver lining
But any day now, someway and somehow
The light from Heaven will come breaking through

The world around us is getting darker
But we know the Word of God is true
Before His coming, times will be harder
But light from Heaven will come breaking through


For the sun is always shining
Though the clouds may hide its view
You may not see a silver lining
But any day now, someway and somehow
The light from Heaven will come breaking through

HE CAN MOVE THAT STONE

Jim Brady & Rodney Griffin

You say you have a stone--been in your way so long
A test of faith, a heavy weight that takes away your song
O, don't give in' you have a Friend
He can move your stone,
He alone will help you smile again 

‘Cause if He can take a little rock and make a giant fall
Bring down the stones on Jericho's mighty wall
If He can roll away the rock sealing up the tomb
Then He can move that stone that troubles you

Sometimes it seems God's forgotten me
Does He really care, is He aware of my every need?
Then I recall His words; He controls this earth
And what He brings me to, He'll bring me through
That's good enough for me

‘Cause if He can take a little rock and make a giant fall
Bring down the stones on Jericho's mighty wall
If He can roll away the rock sealing up the tomb
Then He can move that stone that troubles you

JERICHO

Mark D.R. Dibler

Egypt behind, Jericho in sight
God's promised land, but not without a fight
It'll be alright; God is on your side.
This I know because He told me so
All of your walls will fall down.

So how big is your Jericho?
How tall are the walls that tower over you?
Do they seem too wide that you can't march around?
Don't worry; He'll work it out.
Just look ahead.  You know God will do just what He said.
And all your walls will fall down.

You're feeling down, you take a look around
You're wondering why He hasn't brought you out
Just hold on tight; sometimes it's okay to cry.
You don't know which way to go or what's ahead in your life
'Cause there're some walls blocking your view.

So how big is your Jericho?
How tall are the walls that tower over you?
Do they seem too wide that you can't march around?
Don't worry; He'll work it out.
Just look ahead.  You know God will do just what He said.
And all your walls will fall down.
