Track Name: Image of God
Bare feet stepping on glass
We break along life’s paths
Our fear and loss, we bring it all to you
Soul-breather, making all things new
You’re making all things new

We come in pieces
We come in fragments
We come discolored
To the foot of the cross
Our Maker sees us
All that we have been
Bonds us together
The Image of God

Clay vessels molded for His own
Shall we question him who holds
And shapes us, for His perfect use
Soul-breather, making all things new
You’re making all things new

Chorus

Soil breaking for the seed
Seed breaking for the life
His life broken for the soul
We are remade whole, remade whole

Chorus
Track Name: Set Free
Brothers and sisters,
We’re all saints and sinners
Why do we live like enemies
Let’s leave our anger
Forgive our debtors
Live like a people set free

Set free, oh-oh-oh-oh free
The let-my-people-go kind of set free
Set free, oh, free
By the love that came and died, rose again so we could be
Set free

We know the truth now
His spirit moves now
We are no longer slave to fear
Go and serve your neighbor
Make love your labour
Listen up my friends, oh, don’t you hear (we’re)

Let them know us by our love,
Let them see our life in Him
Let them sing , let them sing
“we have been”
Track Name: Dawn of Grace
Oh, the law I cannot keep
Brings me breathless to my knees
And there I learn to let the gospel be
The sum of what I know
Like rays of rising hope

Oh, dawn of grace upon my soul
The sweetest day my heart has known
And once I looked on Jesus’ face
It was the dawn of grace

All my striving is in vain
All my pride a losing game
And all of my best efforts, simply chains
My Savior steals me from the night
Leads me into love and light

Chorus
Track Name: Lay Us Low
Father we confess
Oh we confess
we have loved you less than ourselves

Father we confess
Oh we confess
All the idols we’ve built

We are betrayed by what we say
By what we do
And what we claim
We want to be famous

Take us down and lay us low
Leave ashes in place of gold
Life-giver sustainer
Let nothing remain of our pride
From your mountain on high
Lay us low

Father, we forget
Oh how we forget
To forgive like you forgive us
Oh, how we pretend
Oh we pretend
We are wise and we are just
We are betrayed by what we say
By what we do
And what we claim
We’ve declared our own agendas

Chorus
Track Name: Pray
Father which art in heaven
Holy is your name
Let your kingdom come
Your will be done
On earth as it is in heaven

Father, give us our daily bread
And father, forgive our debts
As we forgive our debtors

Teach us to pray
Teach us to pray
Teach us to pray

Father which art in heaven
Holy is your name
Let your kingdom come
Your will be done
On earth as it is in heaven

Father, deliver us from evil
For yours is the kingdom
And the power and the glory forever

Teach us to pray
Teach us to pray
Teach us to pray
Ahhh..amen
Teach us to pray, teach us to pray, teach us to pray
Track Name: Visible Invisible
The thirsty pray for water
The hungry beg for bread
The desperate cry for mercy
Run to them, run to them
The broken wait for healing
The orphans long for home
The slaves all cry for freedom
There is hope, there is hope

We are, we are the visible invisible
We are the flesh and bone
Of your redeeming love
We are, we are your kingdom unshakeable
Jesus Christ alive in us
The visible invisible

Your songs will wake the sleeper
Your truth will raise the dead
Your gospel burn like fire
To the end, to the end

Chorus

And the love of God will rise,
Rise in us, rise in us
And the light of God will shine
Shine in us, shine in us
(Repeat)

Chorus
Track Name: Live and Breathe
The waves of grace wash over me
And I feel how thirsty I am
The truth runs deep to the heart of me
And I see how shallow I’ve been
Who can satisfy this cavern inside me

Jesus come and be
All I want and all I need
Be my portion and my strength forever, forever
Jesus, come and be
All I want and all I need
Be the one desire in me forever
You’re everything, be everything
I live and breathe

Let other charms that tempt my heart
Grow strangely dim & powerless to your light
No other love is great enough
To fill me up and give me life
You can satisfy this cavern inside me

Chorus

I live and breathe all you are
Let all you are take all of me
Track Name: Shepherd God
I took my troubles to the Lord
And I laid them at His feet
My knees had buckled beneath the weight
But my Lord reached out for me

Oh, my Shepherd God,
How He loves his flock
How He seeks the lost
And the least of us
I am tended by my Lord
In my Lord I trust

He lifted me like an injured lamb
And He carried me back home
Where His Word is alive and His truth is a song
That restores the weary soul

Oh, my Shepherd God,
How He loves his flock
How He seeks the lost
And the least of us
I am tended by my Lord
In my Lord I trust
Track Name: Even Though
We’ve watched the house fall - right before our eyes
We have seen countless - children die
We have wept tears at - the end of dreams
No one is free here from suffering
But the life we gain through Christ cannot be taken

Even though we lose it all, we’ll not be lost
We’ll not be lost
Behold, this love of God has ransomed us
He’s ransomed us
Even though

We’ve been the lepers outside the gate
We were the poor man without a name
The unfaithful woman falling at his feet
I am the unloveable and He came for me
His arms are fastened firmly round us now

Even though we lose it all, we’ll not be lost
We’ll not be lost
Behold, this love of God has ransomed us
He’s ransomed us
Even though

We had nothing when he found us
We had nothing to recommend us
His grace is like an ocean
His gifts are overflowing
He will care for those who know Him
His promises are certain
We will not walk alone

Chorus
Track Name: 10,000 Reasons (Bless the Lord)
Bless the Lord, O my soul
Oh My soul
Worship His holy name.
Sing like never before
Oh my soul
I’ll worship Your holy name.

The sun comes up, it’s a new day dawning
It’s time to sing Your song again.
Whatever may pass, and whatever lies before me
Let me be singing when the evening comes.

Bless the Lord, O my soul
Oh My soul
Worship His holy name.
Sing like never before
Oh my soul
I’ll worship Your holy name.

You’re rich in love, and You’re slow to anger
Your name is great, and Your heart is kind
For all Your goodness I will keep on singing
Ten thousand reasons for my heart to find.

Bless the Lord, O my soul
Oh My soul
Worship His holy name.
Sing like never before
Oh my soul
I’ll worship Your holy name.

And on that day when my strength is failing
The end draws near and my time has come
Still my soul will sing Your praise unending
Ten thousand years and then forevermore

Bless the Lord, O my soul
Oh My soul
Worship His holy name.
Sing like never before
Oh my soul
I’ll worship Your holy name.
Jesus, I’ll worship your holy name
Lord, I’ll worship your holy name.

Sing like never before
Oh my soul.
I’ll worship Your holy name.
Jesus, I’ll worship Your holy name
I’ll worship Your holy name.
Track Name: Coming to the Light
Old man, whatcha gonna take to your grave
‘Cause there ain’t no secrets on Jordan’s banks
Can’t be much peace down in that soul
‘Cause people get hurt by what they don’t know
You had a little trouble
You swept it away
‘Cause that’s the way it was back in those days
Whoa-oh-oh-oh

Better lay it all out there while you can
‘Cause the Lord’s gonna make you show your hand
Keep it in the dark til you fly away
It’s all coming to the light one day
Whoa-oh-oh-oh
Whoa-oh-oh-oh

Hey, pretty girl, put in the line
Come out from the makeup you hide behind
You got a story to make a grown man weep
But you’re holding it in like it’s yours to keep
Life’s too short
No time to waste
Stand up, girl, you got something to say

Chorus

Ain’t no corners, ain’t no shadows
Ain’t no trouble that love can’t handle
Ain’t no shame in coming clean
‘Cause when you let it go, it’ll set you free

Chorus
