If I Know You

length: 3:23

She counts the hours as she recounts her tears
This day in life feels like a thousand years
But in the changing light of time a doorway forms in her mind
She smiles and sings the song that pulls her through

Chorus (2x):
If I know You, You will turn this day into a perfect surprise
If I know You like I think I do the worst of times will work out right

So many hours spent fearing the hours ahead
I would do better to remember You
For in the changing light of day You always seem to paint the way
In softer hues and brush away my blues

CHORUS (2x)

I know You, You will turn this day into a perfect surprise
If I know You like I know I do the worst of times will work out right
Lord, I know there's hope in sight
You will get me through if I know You

All We Need

length: 4:57
In the name of love
God is reaching down to us
Through the human touch
Something we all need so much
Sharing the embrace
Encircling the saints

All we need is to reach out to touch
All these open hands in front of us
All we need is to hold out His love
Share it with each other for all we need

Oh, the sacrifice
Of letting others in out lives
But when worlds collide
The impact reaches far and wide
Words that love has spoken
Can set our minds in motion

All we need is to reach out to touch
All these open hands in front of us
All we need is to hold out His love
Share it with each other for all we need

You come to us in the name of love
Reaching out through the human touch
Open hands in front of us
All we need, we all need so much

Unfolding

length: 3:24
This small stretch of sky is my horizon
The extent of all my hopeful dreams
Yet I yearn to go beyond perceptions
And see inside some other lives unfolding

So I stretch my eyes above the rooftops
In circling the world of circumstance
I see a sea of faces, each is so significant
A multitude of hopes and dreams unfolding

Open my eyes, open my heart
Open these hands that hold us apart
Open up a way for me to see
The grandeur of the grander scheme unfolding

So I stretch my mind and try to understand
How you could hold each soul inside Your plan
Oh Father, grant me faith to see my part in history
Touching others with Your love unfolding

Open my eyes, open my heart
Open these hands that hold us apart
Open up a way for me to see
The grandeur of the grander scheme unfolding

Open my eyes, open my heart
Open these hands that hold us apart
Open up a way for me to see
The grandeur of the grander scheme unfolding
The grandeur of the grander scheme unfolding

Cry for Help

length: 3:18
You say you're trying to change but you never have
Maybe you need to talk to someone who would ask, why are you afraid?
I know there's someone real left behind the mask
But you're running away and fading fast
There's never been a better time to

Chorus 1:
Cry for help, cry for help to Someone who's near
Someone who'll hear your cry

You do your best to pretend to be doing fine
But you're dying inside your silence, why are you afraid?
I know Someone who knows you inside and out
He tells the truth that you can't live without
There's never been a better time to

Chorus 2:
Cry for help, cry for help, there's Someone who's near
Someone who'll hear your
Cry for help, cry for help
There's nothing to lose, nothing to do but cry

CHORUS 2

...There's nothing to lose, what can you do
Swallow your pride, there's no more disguise
Let go inside, now is the time to cry

Diamond Days

length: 4:35
Some days are cold and hard, a stone around your neck
Others steal the life from you and leave you feeling flat
Just when you think you've taken your last breath
Your Father blows a kiss at you and lifts you up again

And these diamond days arrive just in time
An oasis in the desert to refresh the mind
Oh, these diamond days, they shine like the stars
So perfectly placed when the journey is hard

Sometimes we're buried by a landslide of extremes
We are hard-pressed on every side, it seems
But somewhere between the madness and mundane
Your Father sends a gift that lifts you up again

And these diamond days arrive just in time
An oasis in the desert to refresh the mind
Oh, these diamond days, they shine like the stars
Perfectly placed for when the journey is hard

Just when you think you've taken your last breath
Your Father blows a kiss at you and lifts you up again

And these diamond days arrive just in time
An oasis in the desert to refresh the mind
Oh, these diamond days, they shine like the stars
So perfectly placed for when the journey is , the journey is hard

Eyes Wide Open

length: 4:25
Misinformation came around today
She was quite convincing with all she had to say
I was buying everything she had to sell
My eyes grew heavy underneath the spell

Shake me, wake me from my slumber
Lord, I need Your help

Help me keep my eyes wide open
Got to keep my eyes wide open
I will keep my eyes wide open
Help me keep my eyes wide open
Got my eyes wide, eyes wide open
Got to keep my eyes on You

My mind was blinded by the bliss of ignorance
With only half the truth, all I have is wishful thinking
I am trying to be wise, I'm watching You
To keep me far from dulling lullabies

Help me keep my eyes wide open
Got to keep my eyes wide open
I will keep my eyes wide open
Help me keep my eyes wide open
Got my eyes wide, eyes wide open
Got to keep my eyes on You

Love Like Breathing

length: 4:47
There are times I catch my breath, just to let it go again
Funny how I don't forget to breathe
The air, it comes and goes with or without my control
Something in me just takes over

I want to love like breathing
Spontaneous, like breathing
Imagine just how lovely it would be

I know life is but a sigh, like the wind it will pass by
So to this will I aspire

I want to love like breathing
Spontaneous, like breathing
Imagine just how lovely it would be
If I could love like breathing, filling up completely
Coming from the love sustaining me

His lips inspire my spirit to speak
And whisper this prayer

May I learn to love like breathing
Spontaneous, like breathing
And give the gift He's freely given me
Oh let me love like breathing, filling up completely
Coming from the love sustaining me

The One I've Been Waiting For

length: 4:08

Once upon a time it was a dream of mine
To find love, true love
Just another wish, waiting for the kiss of life to come
Waking me from sleep, You whispered to me
Your story of happy ever after

Now I'm sure, You're the One I've been waiting for
Lord, I can see, You've come to rescue me
You're the One I've been waiting for
Bringing Your peace, breathing new life into me

Lord, You are to me more than make-believe
Not a dream in the mist
For I've seen Your love and Your Kingdom
It will come from above
So what do I need now that You're here
With the words of eternity

Now I'm sure, You're the One I've been waiting for
Lord, I can see, You've come to rescue me
You're the One I've been waiting for
Bringing Your peace, breathing new life into me

Dreams do come true
I've been waiting for You, waiting for You

You're the One I've been waiting for
Lord, I can see, You've come to rescue me
You're the One I've been waiting for
Bringing Your peace, breathing new life into me

What Love Is

length: 4:22

Some would sail the seven seas and cross the great divide
To find the perfect ecstasy to fill the heart and mind
Body and soul, we search for meaning
Before learning just what love is

Some would say a sudden flame, a passion prone to passing
To other just a distant dream, never meant for them
So many souls would find their meaning
If they first would learn what love is

What is love?
To lay your life down to save another
What is love?
To give yourself to those who don't deserve
When mercy smooths the furrowed brow of justice
We will understand what love is

Jesus calmed the stormy seas and crossed the great divide
Hes the perfect ecstasy to fill the heart and mind
Body and soul, the search is over
We found Jesus, He's what love is

What is love?
To lay your life down to save another
What is love?
To give yourself to those who don't deserve
When mercy smooths the furrowed brow of justice
We will understand what love is

It took love like this to make us His
Jesus came to show us just what love is

To lay your life down to save another
(This is love)
Fidelity to those who don't deserve
When mercy smooths the furrowed brow of justice
We will understand what love is

Lifelines

length: 3:46

Life will leave its lines upon your face
And strands of silver upon your head
And every struggle weaves inside and leaves a mark
Becoming part of who you are
Can you see, can you feel them
Tugging at your heart

Lifelines, these are lifelines
Reminders of the times that we've come through
Lifelines, we get lifelines
To show us what the love of God can do
He pulls us through

History has left a single thread
Stretching through the ages in letters on a page
Written in each line His story says He will not forsake us
Can you see, can you feel them
Tugging at your heart

Lifelines, these are lifelines
Reminders of the times that He's come through
Lifelines, He sends lifelines
When holding on is all that we can do, He pulls us through

Life is like the spinning of the spider web
Every line the fingerprint of time
The manifest impressions of the soul are written in the eyes

Lifelines, these are lifelines
Reminders of the times that He's come through
Lifelines, He sends lifelines
When holding on is all that we can do, He pulls us through
