The Beauty of the Cross

length: 5:31

Youre the ruler of my heart
I will wear it loud
I will tell the whole world about You
You died in my place
You suffered all for me
Just so I could live
You were broken and bruised
And I will tell the whole world about You

(Chorus)
The cross, stained by blood
The beauty of the cross
Healing for the lost
The cross, stained by blood
The beauty of the cross
Healing for the lost
The cross

King of my life I crown You now
Youre healer Ive longed for
Now of heaven Im sure
And I will tell the whole world about You

(Chorus)

Thorns on Your brow
Stripes on Your back
So innocent, You did it all for me
Nails in Your hands
Nails in Your feet
Sword in Your side, You did it all for me
You paid the cost
Thats the beauty of the cross

(Chorus)


It's Heaven

length: 4:39
Brian Ray
I am lost without you
I lose my way when you're not near
I am cold when I'm alone
I sometimes forget just who I am
I am borrowed I am bruised
When I'm broken then I'm used
I have strength and I have Peace
I've traded fire for my fear
The hope of heaven's always near
(chorus)-
It's only human
When I fall I feel I can't go on
It's only heaven now
That carries me and takes me over
Your lifted voice has carried
Your words have burned and scarred my heart
You find in me what no one sees
You have shown me life's complete
I am human but I've grace
As I fall I see your face
Then I sing of you and look to you
I am blessed for when I fear
The hope of heaven's always near
(chorus)
(bridge)
I have taken your oath
And you preserve my life
Your words have covered me
(chorus repeat 3x)

So know Him well, know Him well

Lion and the Lamb

length: 5:05
Who is He...The mightiest of all
Who is He...Creation trembles at His call
Who is He...The lowly sacrifice, who paid a victims price
His name is Jesus

(chorus)
Jesus...From the Father's own right hand
Jesus...Son of God and son of man
Jesus...Who died and rose again
Jesus...He's the Lion and the Lamb

Who is He...Who was humbly led away, to suffer that dark day
His name is Jesus

(chorus)

He's the Lamb that was slain
He's the Lion that reigns
My Savior and King both the same
Who is He...With the eyes that burn like fire
Who is He...Oh the wonder He inspires
Who is He...Who bore the guilt and shame
For the ones who'd gone astray
His name is Jesus

(chorus)

Beauty for Ashes

length: 3:54
He gives beauty for ashes
Strength for fear
Gladness for mourning
Peace for despair

When sorrow seems to surround you
When suffering hangs heavy oer your head
Know that tomorrow brings
Wholeness and healing
God knows your need
Just believe what He said

He gives beauty for ashes
Strength for fearGladness for mourning
Peace for despair

When what youve done keeps you from moving on
When fear wants to make itself at home in your heart
Know that forgiveness brings
Wholeness and healing
God knows your need
Just believe what He said

He gives beauty for ashes
Strength for fearGladness for mourning
Peace for despair

I once was lost but God has found me
Though I was bound Ive been set free
Ive been made righteous in His sight
A display of His splendor all can see

He gives beauty for ashes
Strength for fearGladness for mourning
Peace for despair


In Return

length: 3:47
All I had to give
Was a broken heart, torn apart
That's all I had to give
All I had to give
Was an empty hope and promises
But in return He gave me joy
That could never be told
And in return he gave me love
That was more precious than gold
So whatever you have to give
You don't have to be ashamed
Just come as you are
And present it in Jesus name

For in return of a torn life
He'll give you life abundantly
And in return of a raging storm
The Lord will calm the sea
So whatever you have
The Lord has so much more
So what do you have to give

Oh if you were like me
You didn't have a lot of gold
Position or money
You didn't own wealth untold
But I'm glad He didn't look on the things that I had
But he looked and gave me all, all that I need

Oh for in return He gave me joy
That could never be told
And in return He gave me love
That was more precious, more precious than gold
In return of a torn life
He gave me life abundantly
And in return of a raging storm
The Lord will calm the sea
So what do you have to give

God's Been Good to Me

length: 5:10
Crystal Lewis, Brian Ray
(chorus)-
God's been good to me
Oh God's always been good
God's been good to me
Oh God's always been good
I don't always say the right things
Boy I try
I don't always live my life the right way
But God is faithful to forgive me
When I fair or fall
I am unworthy of it all
Still He keeps on givin'
(chorus)
My God has given me
More than I ever dreamed
A precious family
And friends who care for me
Why should He love me so
Oh that I'll never know
I am unworthy of it all
Still He keeps on givin' to me
(chorus repeat 2x)
(bridge)
It would take hours and days at a time
For me to sit down and write down
All the things He's done
Let me say this that it's nothing I've done
But it's the grace He gives freely to everyone
Tell everybody
Tell everybody 'bout it
Tell everybody
Everybody ought to know

Seasons Change

length: 4:41
Are you going through a dry spell?
yes, I've been there before
Where the trees are slowly whithering
Where their roots cry out for more
where the desert floor is dry and cracked
No clouds hang in the sky
No winter rain or spring it seems
No change in sight

(Chorus)
But seasons change and then they pass
no way to know how long they'll last
I'd love to know the reasons why
But God knows
Seasons change and then they pass
no way to know how long they'll last
I'd love to know the reasons why
But God knows
Seasons change

Are you going through a dry spell?
I've been there a time or two
Where life seems to stay the same for a while
You want to change but don't know how to
It's the place where you feel empty inside
Can't put your finger on the need
I look at God and see what I want to be
I look at me and see what I am

(Chorus)
Are you going through a dry spell?
I was there a while ago
Now I've come to a place where the rain falls
where the trees bear fruit and grow
where I find a refuge in my God
It's a place of surrender I know
I look at God and see what I want to be
He looks at me and sees His own

(Chorus)

Over Me

length: 6:15
When there's music all around
No conductor in the stand
When the singing is like sobbing
With no method to the sound

There's a voice that reminds me not to fret
It's the one that rings out above the rest
There's a song, sets me free
Like a rhythm over me

There's a chain, a chain of voices
Looking for a harmony
There's a sound like a trumpet
Blowing out across the sea

There's a beat from the center of the wind
With the heat from the keeper of the flame
There's a breath moving sweetly
Like a rhythm over me

[Chorus]
And it is over me
When I feel I cannot move
It always carries me
It is over me
Like a rhythm over me

When I'm riding with the angels
With my feel like the wind
When I'm riding with the angels
With my wings like the eagle
There's a voice that reminds me not to fret
It's the one that rings out above the rest
There's a song, sets me free
Like a rhythm over me

[Chorus: x 2]

Healing Oil

length: 6:15
Chris Lizotte
Lord I am tired
I'm losing sleep
I stuggle with breathing
It overwhelms me
Lord I am thirsty
I don't want to eat
My body is aching
For peace
I'd like to run again
Or even just walk
Or just see the ocean
One more time
Lord I look forward
To sit at your feet
I know what you'll do for me when we meet
(chorus)-
I can feel your healing oil
Running down my brow
I wouldn't trade another lifetime
For how I feel right now
(repeat chorus)
Lord I am weary
I know that you're near
Take care of my family
While we're apart
And I thank you for giving me
This life that I've had
Now I look for the comfort
Of your arms
(repeat chorus 2x)
