Track Name: Psalm 10
Arise oh Lord, oh God
Lift up Your hand
Remember the afflicted

Arise oh Lord, oh God
Lift up Your hand
Remember the helpless

Why oh Lord do you stand far away?
Why do you hid in troubling times?
There hearts say they will not be moved
The helpless fall by their might

Arise oh Lord, oh God
Lift up Your hand
Remember the afflicted
Arise oh Lord, oh God
Lift up Your hand
Remember the helpless

Hold me oh God
I find shelter in you
I have no good apart from you
You won't abandon my soul
With you comes fullness of joy

Arise oh Lord, oh God
Lift up Your hand
Remember the afflicted
Arise oh Lord, oh God
Lift up Your hand
Remember the helpless

The Lord is King forever and ever
The nations perish from His land
Oh Lord you hear our desires
You will strengthen our hearts
And do justice for the oppressed

Arise oh Lord, oh God
Lift up Your hand
Remember the afflicted
Arise oh Lord, oh God
Lift up Your hand
Remember the helpless
Track Name: May Your Spirit Descend
Breathe in me, oh Holy Spirit
That my thoughts may all be holy
Act in me oh Holy Spirit
That my work too may be holy
Draw my heart oh Holy Spirit
That I love but what is holy

May Your Spirit descend upon our lives
Make us holy and one
In the name of Your Son we pray
Amen

Strengthen me oh Holy Spirit
To defend all that is holy
Guard me then oh Holy Spirit
That I always may be holy
Unite us all oh Holy Spirit
That we may be one and holy

May Your Spirit descend upon our lives
Make us holy and one
In the name of your Son we pray
Amen
Track Name: I Am Here
Carry it all away
It is all the same
Broken bones, broken hearts

Everything is cracked
There's darkness all around

I am here

Here I hold my desk
My thoughts are far away
It holds me in this place
Like an anchor to my soul

My mind it runs
A thousand miles an hour

I am here

I'm tired of losing track
In the chaos all around
In this ocean of noise
I want to know you're here

I want to speak my heart
I want to know you're listening

I am here
Track Name: All I Am I Owe To Thee
All I am I owe to Thee
Thy wisdom Lord has fashioned me
I give my maker thankful praise
Whose wondrous works my soul amaze

Ere into being I was brought
Thine eye did see and in Thy thought
My life in all its perfect plan
Was ordered ere my days began

Hallelujah

Thy thoughts oh God
How manifold
More precious unto me than gold
I muse on their infinity
Awaking I am still with Thee

Search me God my heart discern
Try me my inmost thoughts to learn
And lead me if in sin I stray
To choose the everlasting

Hallelujah

And all that I am
I owe to Thee
All that I am
I owe to Thee
I owe to Thee
I owe to Thee

Hallelujah
Track Name: Is This All
Is this all
Is this all
Is this all, we know how to do?

We break bones and we break hearts and we break lives in two
We dream dreams and we fall hard cuz we can't find the truth

Is this all
Is this all
Is this all, we know how to do?

My soul was embittered and I was pricked in heart
I was cruel and ignorant, like a beast towards your love

Is this all
Is this all
Is this all, we know how to do?

Whom have I in heaven but you?
You hold my hand and guide me to what's true

This is all

This is all
This is all
This is all, my hope lies in you
Track Name: You Will Not Forget Me
You will not forget me
You will not forget me
Though my hope may fail
My tears they flood
And my doubts stand tall
You will not forget me

Your love is my hope
It's the only place to go
Even when I can't stand
You pursue with open hands

You will not forget me
You will not forget me
Though my health may fail
My tears they flood
And my affections wane
You will not forget me
Track Name: You Walked Away
The silence between us is deafening, when there's much to say
My words fell hard like a driving rain
And you walked away
You walked away

I want to know what you have to say
I want to know why you walked away
I want to know what you have to say, to me

I lie in bed and feel pitiful about this rainy day
And the cold that it ushered in seems it's here to stay
It's here to stay

I want to know what you have to say
I want to know why you walked away
I want to know what you have to say, to me

The love we share will always be there
To catch our fall, carry it all
You and I could never bare the weight of it all
The price of our call
The hand that I'm holding now, will never let go
Not because I'm holing on
Love will make it so

I want to know what you have to say
I want to know why you walked away
I want to know what you have to say, to me

It's quiet now and we're all alone
And there's much to say
Much to say
Track Name: To Miles
Your name's on my lips
But I can't see your face
Longing to know you
And whisk you away

I'm looking for something
That will show me your ways
But I can't, I can't
I must wait

So I call out
To my Abba
So I call out
To the One who
Formed you in the dark
Holds you in the deep

We will come
There you'll be
We will come
Your light to see

This world's filled with many chances
Prayed you'd come out safe
So much good then so much darkness
Love will guide your way

Baby, of mine
Baby, of mine, I'm waiting
Track Name: Kindness
When hope feels far away
And trust is hard to fake
When love is lost and frayed
You draw me near

I hear you call my name
The walls can fall away
The end of me is here
And hope begins

It's your kindness that calls us
It's your mercy that draws us
It's your love that restores us
Your love makes my heart whole

There's power in your name
And freedom from my shame
You see every tear
And know each pain

Graven in your hand
Is the name of every man
Evil will not stand
And Love shall win

It's your kindness that calls us
It's your mercy that draws us
It's your love that restores us
Your love makes my heart whole

In the valley of the shadow
You are near
You are here
Even in the darkness
I will not fear
I will not fear

It's your kindness that calls us
It's your mercy that draws us
It's your love that restores us
Your love makes my heart whole
