Track Name: Save me from me
The devil deceived me,
yes he did, best you believe.
When I turned my back on the Lord,
he was there, best you believe.

My days turned dark,
and my nights ever long.
Now I thank You God.
I thank You God.

Before I did that,
I took it there.
I took it too that place where it's,
real hard to care.

But with a blackened heart and soulless soul,
I was still saved,
Saved by Lord Jesus,
Saved by His Name.

You've got to know, but you don't know,
You've got to know, so I'm telling you,
I was down on my knees, begging Father please,
Father please save me,
Save me from me.

One day you're up, next day you're down.
I know that's life, but why take it all out on Him.
Monday through Thursday you're singing His songs,
But the weekends you're gone, what's going on?

You've got to know, but you don't know,
You've got to know, so I'm telling you,
I was down on my knees, begging Father please,
Father please save me,
Save me from me.
Track Name: Dying to be with Him
Let's go back in time,
back a long way.
Let's go back in time,
and tell a story of a Man that saved,
You and me.

No time for a crown,
no place for fame.
He walked on this earth with us,
He walked in His Father's Name.
O Lord, His only Son He gave.

The pain of that day He felt just for you and me.

He carried our sins on the cross but we spat at Him.
We left Him to bleed but we're freed because of Him.
I've got no more words I've just got the sight of Him.
I'm dying to be with Him.

The pain of that day He felt just for you and me.

He came back to life now my life is just for Him.
It's all for His glory my story is just for Him.
I've got no more words I've just got the sight of Him.
I'm dying to be with Him.
Track Name: You are truly worthy
When I look up at the sky,
I see Your Name in it.
When I hold onto my heart,
I feel the fire You’ve lit.
O Lord, You are truly worthy.
O Lord, You are everything.

So majestic in Your splendour,
So mysterious in Your ways.
O Lord my Savior,
So matchless in grace.
O Lord, You are truly worthy.
O Lord, it’s for You that I sing.

O Lord, You chose us.
O Lord, it’s in You that we trust.
O Lord, You are truly worthy.
O Lord, You are Holy.
Track Name: Calling out for You
O Lord I’m calling out for You,
come down from Heaven because we need You.
It’s getting real hard here,
it’s getting real dark too.

I look a brother in Christ in his eyes,
I see the pain from the doubt and the lies.
O Lord, I’m sorry for the pain in the lies.

I know I’ve got to be the man in the gap,
I know I’ve got to be stronger.
So Lord I’m praying for the strength that I need,
because I’m in it for the long-haul.
O Lord, please grant me the strength that I need.

I’ve got my name engraved on His heart,
I’ve got my story written down on His palms.
O lord, my story’s written down on Your palms.
Track Name: Hallelujah
I close my eyes and all I see is You,
never leaving my side. Never leaving my side.
You'd walk for days You'd walk every night,
never leaving my side. Never leaving my side.

It's a love like no other I know.
It's a love that's simply true.
True love is You.

I never thought I'd feel this way again,
the way I feel with You. The way I feel with You.
Thank You Lord for the Spirit within, for the Spirit within,
freeing me from sin.

Singing hallelujah.
Singing hallelujah.
Amen.
Track Name: Man don't understand
O Lord. My God.
Man don't understand
what's going on in my heart (but You do)

They weigh me up against another man (but You don't,
You see a son and You know His plan).
You sent my brother and He died for me (us),
It's the only way that it could be,
To set us free.

Jesus You died,
To save us from ourselves.
I hold my heart up to You.

Jesus, You're alive,
You saved us from ourselves.
I hold my heart up to You.
Track Name: Pray for the nations
When I cried out in fear and loneliness,
You heard my prayers.
When I locked up my heart and turned my back,
You were still there.
The chains have been broken,
By Your Name I am free.

The chains have been broken, by Your Name I am free.
I found my salvation, in a God that loves me.
I pray for the Nations, it’s for You that we breath.

In the times when I feel like I have died,
You breathe life.
When my house gets so torn apart,
It’s You that's got room for my heart.
The chains have been broken,
I give You my heart.

The chains have been broken, by Your Name I am free.
I found my salvation, in a God that loves me.
I pray for the Nations, it’s for You that we breath.
Track Name: He knows better
I’ve been looking around,
I’ve been listening to sounds,
I wasn’t quite there,
But I know I am now.

He put up with me,
I wasn’t worth putting up for,
He puts up with me,
Even though I always let Him down.

He’s answering things I’ve been asking for forever,
I ask Him these things because I know He knows better.
You know.
You’ve always known.

I give You my life,
the life You already died for.
I’m never alone,
Because it’s You that I fight for.

Singing hallelujah.
Singing hallelujah.
Track Name: Father, come
Jesus Christ, O Lord of Lords,
You picked it up and walked on forth.
My life has been paid for.

There aint no Kingdom without a King,
O my Lord, it's Your praise that we sing.
It's Your praise that we sing.

Father come, come and shake the ground.
Father come, let the trumpet sound.
Let Heaven come.

To right the wrongs He's got to be a judge,
He died on the cross, He did it all for us.
He did it all for us.

The fight's been fought, all the battles won,
I sing You songs, I sing You songs of love.
I sing You songs of love.
