Victory

length: 4:44

[Chorus]
I've got, got the victory
I've got the sweet, sweet victory in Jesus
Yes I do
He is a mighty conqueror
In him I will trust all my battles he'll fight
I've got, got the victory
I've got the sweet, sweet victory in Jesus
For me he died but he rose on the third day
That's why I have true victory every day

Truly I've been through the storm and rain
I know everything about heartache and pain
But God carried me through it all
Without his protection I would surely fall
I've been broke, without a dime to my name
But all my bills got paid
Because I called on Jesus' name
You can't tell me that God isn't real
'Cause I've got the victory
And that's why I'm still here

[Chorus]

I'm not worried about material things I don't have
I'm just blessed 'cause I know that my savior's there
Because I know that my blessing is on the way
I can't see it right now but I stand by faith
I've fought many, many battles in his name
I've held up the blood-stained banner
And proclaimed that Jesus is the truth and the light
Believe me when I say he will make it right

[Chorus]

Yeah, I got the victory, yeah
I got the victory, yeah, yeah, yeah
And if you got the victory, sing along with me
Yeah, I've got the victory, yeah
I got the victory, yeah, yeah, yeah
Sing it with me, I've got the victory

[Chorus]

Tonight

length: 4:59
I know it's been a while now,
Since you last heard from me,
Or talked to me
It's been kind of hard lately
I've had a lot on my mind
It's been so long that,
I'm afraid that the words may not come out right
But, tonight I'll try
Tonight
Tonight I'll try
Tonight

I know that prayin' ain't always easy
It's hard sometimes to express what you feel inside
Especially when you don't think God is listening
It's been raining now for sometime
But instead of what I see
You want me to trust You, working it out for me
So, tonight I will try
Tonight
Oh oh oh
Tonight I'll try
Tonight

Who ever told you that living in this world would be easy?
Baby, they lied
And, whoever said that lovin' folk that don't love you back ain't really hard
Even though you really tryin'
Telling you what I'm going through
Sometimes it's harder than I realize
But tonight I'll try
Tonight
Tonight I'll try
Tonight

So, tonight when you get home
You oughta unplug the phone
And get alone
Tell your Father how you truly feel
Even if your words don't come out right
For no matter how far you've gone
God's love can find you, and bring you back home
So, tonight you oughta try,
Tonight
So, tonight you oughta try,
Tonight

Who ever told you that living in this world would be easy?
Baby, they lied
And, whoever said that lovin' folk who don't love you back ain't really hard
Even though you really tryin'
Telling you what I'm going through
Sometimes it's harder than I realize
But tonight I'll try
Tonight
Tonight I'll try
Tonight

Tonight
Take away my pain (Tonight)
Take away my strains (Tonight)
And let me live (Tonight)
All over again (Tonight)
Tonight I'm gonna throw my hands up (Tonight)
Tonight I'm gonna give it all up (Tonight)
Tonight I wanna turn it all around (Tonight)
Put my feet on solid ground (Tonight)
Won't you take me where you need to take me (Tonight)
Won't you do with me what you wanna do with me (Tonight)
Tonight
Tonight
This night
Tonight
I'm yours
I'm yours
I'm yours
I'm yours

Someone Watching Over You

length: 4:54
Someone Watching Over You Lyrics
Say that your not afraid
Your just fine
Got it all figured out this time
All of the plans you made
Will work out
Deep inside you have your doubts
But your clinging to your pride
And you just don't know
Your free to let it go
Cause even when it rains outside
There is light
Even when you cry all night
Your alright
Even when you loose your way
You'll get through
Cause there is someone watching over you
Say you've been hurt before your afraid
That you'll never love again
And why should you take a chance just to fall
But you'd rather build a wall
Than believe that you are loved
Open up your heart
Someone needs you as your are
I've been there
At times I get scared
Its true
But I hold on to that
I can't see
Something inside of me
And that's what give me strength to believe

Alwaysness

length: 5:08
Although the sun has been around for a long time
Still has the ability to shine
And although the moon lights up the night
Sometimes it likes to hang out in the sunshine

And although green grass sometimes turn brown
It's refreshed when rain drops come falling down
Creations starts and it's renewed
By a single touch from You

So, I depend on You, no matter what I do
I know You'll always come though
You'll never change the rules
I can depend on the alwaysness of You

Never change, You'll remain
Faithful through life's ups and downs, still the same
Everlasting love for me, so heavenly
That's the alwaysness

The seasons change without a calendar
And the breezeless know, how and when to blow
Never have to wonder where the water goes
'Cause it flows home to the ocean floor

Everything reacting in common sense
When placed beneath the of Your omnipotent
Please won't You show me how I should live
So, glory I can give

'Cause I depend on You, no matter what I do
I know You'll always come though
You'll never changed the rules
I can depend on the alwaysness of You

Never change, You'll remain
Faithful through life's ups and downs, still the same
Everlasting love for me so heavenly
That's the alwaysness

Never change, You'll remain
Faithful through life's ups and downs, still the same
Everlasting love for me so heavenly
That's the alwaysness

It's so simple when I do things Your way
So, I try everyday, sometimes my path can get hard
Even when I start off with the best of intentions
I get weak and fall short

And I know when I'm down
You'll be there to lift me up
Your love will never wait

Never change, You'll remain
Faithful through life's ups and downs, still the same
Everlasting love for me so heavenly
That's the alwaysness

Never change, You'll remain
Faithful through life's ups and downs, still the same
Everlasting love for me so heavenly
That's the alwaysness

The alwaysness of God, of God

Lift Him Up (feat. Donnie McClurkin and Mary Mary)

Oh Lord, Oh Lord we lift you ooh we lift you up yeah yeah yeah

Raise my voice in testimony
Cause he's more than a friend to me
Gave my heart 'cause I believe he's the almighty
I can look at my life and see all the things that
He's done to set me free protecting me from harm
Raise my hands to show how I feel
His presence is oh so real
Till he's guiding me I'll be still
Cause I'd be lost without him
My heart and soul I dedicate and to show I appreciate his love
I'll give him praise

[Chorus]
Lift Him up
Each and everyday we celebrate our faith
(Lift Him Up)
In a song of praise thanking him for everything (Lift Him up)
Devotion I express because I know I'm blessed (Lift Him up)
Praise Him with every breath
Glorify His name, lift Him up

Use the temple He gave us
Do a joyful dance of worship
Cause His mercy is so precious and new every morning
Always let Him know that we're grateful for another chance to say thank you
'Round the world sing it louder, for our heavenly father
To his almighty power
Let's glorify him, magnify him

[Chorus:Repeat x2]

You created the earth and the heavens above
And for our salvation you gave your own son
So we humble ourselves to your infinite power
Your love is greater than mine
(Your grace) and your grace is amazing
And through us we lift your holy name

[Chorus:Repeat x2]

Be Blessed

length: 5:48
Too many storms have passed your way
And you're all washed out 'cause it rained on your parade
Seems nobody cares about you anyway
Now you're living your life like a castaway

Search for strength inside was it all in vain
Cause the deeper you dig you find more and more pain
Don't let your tomorrow be like yesterday
Cause I spoke to God I called out your name

And on your behalf I just asked
If He would be there for you

I want you to be blessed, don't live life in distress
Just let go let God, He'll work it out for you
I pray that your soul will be blessed
Forever in His hands for you deserve His best no less

Enter a place where you never have to cry
Never have to live a lie, never have to wonder why
Never want for nothin' your always satisfied
In the peace that His arms will provide

He will erase any guilt or shame
Any bad habits you got you won't wanna do 'em again
Yes we all can change I can testify
See I spoke to God, I called out your name

And on your behalf I just asked
If He would be there for you

I want you to be blessed, don't live life in distress
Just let go let God, He'll work it out for you
I pray that your soul will be blessed
Forever in His hands for you deserve His best no less

My prayer for you today is that you trust and always obey
On his name keep calling He'll keep you from fallin'
He'll supply the answers
If you stand in faith and trust Him to make a way

I want you to be blessed, don't live life in distress
Just let go let God, He'll work it out for you
I pray that your soul will be blessed
Forever in His hands for you deserve His best no less

You've been through so much
Be blessed from the bottom of your feet to the crown of your head
Your life be blessed, your family be blessed
Your finances be blessed everything about you
Give it to Jesus, give it to Jesus

Better Than Gold

length: 3:39
Sun comes up, moon goes down
Heaven shine all around
It feels my heart and moves my soul
Because loving Him is better than gold

(In His arms)
Dreams comes true
(And in His eyes)
The world is new

(Diamonds beam)
And yes silver glows
(It glows)
(But loving Him is better than gold)

He came when hope was
(My way, gone)
I never I could love
(Knew, so strong)

I've walked some lonely roads before
(But now I search)
No more

Cause this feels right, I know it?s real
(The deeps truth has been revealed)
(All the joy that a heart can hold)
Oh yeah, yeah, than gold
(Loving Him is better)

Than gold
Than gold
Than gold
Than gold
Than gold
(Better than gold)

I've walked some lonely roads before
(But now I search no more)
(This feels right, it's real)
I know

(The deeps truth has been revealed)
(He's all I need and all I know)
All I know is, than gold
(Loving Him is better)
(Loving Him is better)
Than gold

Oh, oh, oh, oh

Show Me

length: 4:13
There is a place in me
That no one but You can see
And in that place I'm really insecure
I've been hurt before by that
But I'm really sure You understand
Every tear I've cried
I bet You've cried a million more
How can I get back to where my smile I had was real
I'm desperate for Your touch
And I miss Your voice so much
Lord show me Your face
I'm longing for Your presence in this place
I give You all the pieces
'Cause you made a promise
You put me back together
Better than I was before
In the coldness of the night
I'm surrounded by Your light
Even in the darkness
You tell me don't be afraid
I am not afraid
After all that I've been through
I'm still valuable to you
So I run to Your arms
Where I'm safe within Your praise
And just in case I forgot to tell You
Don't ever let me go
I'm desperate for Your touch
And I miss Your voice so much
Lord show me Your face
I'm longing for Your presence in this place
I give You all the pieces
'Cause you made a promise
You put me back together
Better than I was before
Lord, show me your will
Until you do I promise that I'll be still
So, come and take these pieces and
You made me a promise
You put me back together
Better than I was before
Before I met You
Before I knew You
My heart ached for something that I could not explain
And then, when I saw You
I finally knew what I thought love was before had changed
Lord show me Your face
I'm longing for Your presence in this place
I give You all the pieces
'Cause you made a promise
You put me back together
Better than I was before

I'm Grateful

length: 3:39
producer: Mike City
I woke up this morning, closed in my right mind
Counting all the blessings I've had in my lifetime
I'm so fortunate to have someone like God
Heavenly Father

When I was having so many problems
No one but Him could help me solve them
He stepped in and He made everything okay
And for this I'm so grateful

I'm grateful, so thankful
To be in the land of the living
I'm grateful, I'm so thankful
To be in the land of the living

I don't mind sharing my testimony
To anyone who hear it 'cause I'm lead by the spirit
And it's possible that something I might say
To help along the way

Been through the storm but here I'm still standing
On solid ground I keep on landing
That's why I have so much faith in God
For His love I'm grateful

I'm grateful, so thankful
To be in the land of the living
I'm grateful, I'm so thankful
To be in the land of the living

I'm grateful, so thankful
To be in the land of the living
I'm grateful, I'm so thankful
To be in the land of the living

Yes, I'm grateful, yeah, I'm thankful
He spared me, He gave another chance

I'm grateful, so thankful
To be in the land of the living
I'm grateful, I'm so thankful
To be in the land of the living

I'm grateful, so thankful
To be in the land of the living
I'm grateful, I'm so thankful
To be in the land of the living
I'm grateful

This Too Shall Pass

length: 4:58
In the middle of the turbulence surrounding you
These trying times that are so hard to endure
In the middle of what seems to be your darkest hour
Hold fast your heart and be assured

[Chorus:]
This too shall pass
Like every night that's come before it
He'll never give you more than you can bear
This too shall pass
So in this thought be comforted
It's in His Hands
This too shall pass

The Father knows the tears you cry before they fall
He feels your pain, His heart and yours are one
The Father knows that sorrow's heavy chains are strong
But with His strength, you'll overcome

[Chorus:]

So set your eyes upon the mountain
And lift your hands up to the sky
And let His arms of love surround you
And take you to the other side

[Chorus:]
