Loading the player...

These songs speak of my journey to know Jesus in a greater way. They contain information He has shared with me over the years, and information which is quite fresh to me as well.  So I will join my voice with Paul's...and pray that as you listen to the songs, the eyes of your heart will be opened, and you will come into a greater awareness of who Jesus is, and who He is for you.

Lyrics : To See With New Eyes
Everything's changing, nothing's the same
Everything's changing, falling away
Much that I've known,  will now be no more
Seems I'm standing in the dark, looking for the door.
 
Questions surround me, and echo in my mind
Questions surround me, but answers I can't find
In the midst of it all, Your whisper comes through
“Come and rest in me awhile, I'm making all things new”.
 
Chorus:
To see with new eyes, and hear with new ears
To know You in ways I've never known You before
This is my prayer, the cry of my heart
Open up my eyes, let me see You as You are.
 
Here in the darkness, Lord it's hard to see
Here in the darkness, You are changing me
One step at a time, You'll lead me through
Lord, I may not understand, but I will trust in You.
 
Chorus:

Lyrics : Journey Of A Lifetime
Chorus:
You have me on the journey of a lifetime
Travelling a road, I don’t know where it leads
Teaching me to trust the voice I’m hearing
Teaching me to trust what I can’t see. 
 
Everywhere around me walls are falling, 
Foundations are crumbling apart
So many things I used to place my trust in, 
Step by step you’re purging from my heart        
          
Yes, everything I’ve ever known is changing, 
So many things are different now to me    
Things I thought were one way are the other, 
Truly, I was blind but now I see.
 
Chorus
 
There are times the road gets rough and rocky, 
And the mountains, they seem so hard to climb
But it’s in those moments when I’m weak and weary, 
I can feel your hand slip into mine.
 
Yes, everywhere I go you are beside me, 
The constant in everything I do
Speaking words of wisdom to me daily, 
Lighting up the way and seeing me through
    
Chorus:
 
Now day by day O Lord you lead me onward, 
Waking me to things I’ve never seen         
Inviting me to come a little closer, 
Open up my heart and just believe.
 
Yes, you’re calling me to come and know you fully, 
To walk a road, where few have gone before
To taste of things that I could never dream of, 
To truly know myself, and so much more.
 
Chorus:

Lyrics : Taking Me Through
Chorus:
You're taking me through the darkness of my soul 
Exposing the pride and fear and letting me know
There are things that have to change if I'm going to grow
You're taking me through the darkness of my soul
 
Memories I've forgotten, are now coming back to me
Things that have long been hidden, these things now I see
Shame, regret, and failure surface before my eyes                             
While I hear the mocking voice of fear, taunt me with its lies
 
Chorus:
 
Emotions like waves start rolling upon my stormy sea
I feel myself start sinking, I'm finding it hard to breathe
My motives and agendas are coming into view
Everything is being laid bare before Your light of truth
 
Chorus:
 
Bridge:
I don't like what is happening, and I don't like what I see
But here in the darkness Lord, I know You're changing me...
 
Chorus:

Lyrics : I'm Not Waiting Any Longer
I'm not waiting any longer, I'm saying goodbye to fear
All the weight that I've been under, all the lies I chose to hear
The truth is now before me, and it's here I'll make my stand
Freedom's mine in You Lord, so today I take Your hand. 
 
I'm not waiting any longer, I'm saying goodbye to pride
The religion, and offences, all the judgements that I hide
The truth is now before me, and it's here I choose to see
Freedom's mine in You Lord, so today I bend the knee. 
 
Chorus:
I'm not waiting any longer, no, I'm choosing to believe
My hope is growing stronger, and even now I see
The work has been completed,  the victory has been won
I'm not waiting any longer, the time to stand has come
 
I'm not waiting any longer, I'm saying hello to faith 
All the joy and all the wonder, of walking in Your grace
The truth is now before me, and it's here that I can say
Freedom's mine in You Lord, Your's is the only way.
 
Chorus:

Lyrics : Show Me The Line
I'm tired of pretending, saying that I believe
I'm tired of not living, all that I should be
I'm tired of always fighting a battle that's been won
I'm tired of always striving for what's already done
 
Chorus:                                                                    
Show me the line, I want to step across
Show me the line, I want to count the cost
All the fears I have known, they must fall away
Show me the line, today is the day. 
 
I'm tired of going round the mountain, seeing what I have seen
I'm tired of not trusting You, for everything I need
I'm tired of the formulas, all the ways I've boxed You in
I'm tired of the religion, so here is where it ends.
 
Chorus:
  
Bridge
You are all I want, You're all I need
No turning back, on to victory

Lyrics : It's Time To Believe
Chorus
It’s time to believe, time to open our eyes, wake up and receive      
It’s time to believe, time to throw off the fear, and embrace every dream
Lift our banner of hope, lift it high, let wave in the breeze
For now, is the time, now is the time to believe.
 
Now is the time for expectation
Now is the time for manifestation
The seeds that we planted so long ago           
They have grown, they have grown.
 
Chorus:
 
Everything’s today there’s no tomorrow
Shake off the past, yesterday’s sorrow
Even now the sun is on the rise
See how it shines, see how it shines
 
Chorus:

Lyrics : It's Time To Prosper
We've been feeding the things we haven't wanted for years
The words we've been speaking, have been rooted in fear
Now one thing's for sure, His Word is quite clear
Our words will determine just what will appear.
 
We were made in His image, to be like Him
To call into being the things that do not exist
To speak life to the dead, in all that there is
The words that we speak, are the words we will live
 
Chorus:
It's time to prosper, it's time to grow
It's time to declare what the Lord says is so
It's time to speak out, the truth that we know
It's time to prosper, it's time to grow.
 
Well I pray we would prosper and be in health
As our mind, will, and emotions prosper as well
And that the eyes of our hearts would be enlightened to see
The hope to which we are called, and all were destined to be.
 
Chorus:
 
Bridge:
It's time to wake, to see through new eyes
It's time to put on the mantle of Christ

Lyrics : I Declare Victory
In the light of all, You've done, and anchored in who You are
I stand in Your strength alone, knowing I'm in Your heart
Knowing whatever comes, You have made a way                              
Knowing the battle's won, I take Your hand and boldly say.
 
Chorus:
I declare victory, I declare victory
By the power of Your love, and through Your blood, I've overcome
I declare victory, I declare victory
No matter what I feel or see, I declare victory.
 
In the light of all, You've said and anchored in Your Word
I hold to You alone, knowing my voice is heard
Knowing You've planned my steps, each and every day
Knowing You're by my side, O Lord, now I can boldly say
 
Chorus:
 
In the light of all, I've seen, and anchored in who we are
I stand in You alone, knowing You hold my heart
Knowing You always care, and will never turn away
Knowing I can't lose, O Lord, there's just one thing I can say.
 
Bridge:
No weapon formed against me will prevail
You've given me Your Word, O Lord, and I know You cannot fail
 
Chorus:

Lyrics : You're Not Looking For Servants
You're not looking for servants, 
You're looking for daughters and sons
You're not asking for service, 
But simply obedience, borne out of love
Those who will seek You, for all that You are
Not looking to Your hand, but looking to Your heart. 
 
You're not looking for worship, 
You're looking for hearts that are true
You're not asking for sacrifice, 
Just lives that will yield wholly to You
Those who will trust You, with all that they are
Holding to Your hand, while following Your heart... You're looking for 
 
Chorus:
A people of passion, a people of hope
A people of honour, who know that they're known
A people of wisdom, a people of faith
A People Who've chosen, to walk in Your way.
 
You're not looking for servants, 
You're looking for daughters and sons
You're not asking for service, 
But simply assistance, sharing Your love
Those who would know You, above all that they are
Not holding to the law, but holding to Your heart... You're looking for

Lyrics : Do Not Be Afraid
Chorus:
Do not be afraid, I am with you
Do not be dismayed, I am your God
I will strengthen you, yes I will help you
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand
 
All who rage against you
Will be ashamed and disgraced;
Those who rise to oppose you
Will perish without a trace.
 
Chorus:
 
Though you search for your enemies,
They will not be found.
Those who wage war against you
Will be as nothing at all.
 
Chorus:
 
I am the Lord your maker
Who takes hold of your right hand
So do not fear I will help you 
And give you the strength to stand
 
Chorus:
 
A new day's dawning and all around
Your truth is breaking up the fallow ground
The ways of man are coming down
Your remnant is waking to a brand new sound 
 
The trumpet's sounding for all who'll hear
Your truth is exposing all pride and fear
Wisdom is calling “let all draw near”
Darkness is fleeing as Your light appears
 
Chorus:
It's time to see with new eyes, hear with new ears 
Know You in ways we've never known You before
It's time to wake to the truth, of all that You are
Open up our eyes, Lord reveal to us Your heart.
 
The sun is rising, the season's change, 
Your truth is shattering the prisoner's chains
Eyes once blinded now can see again
Your Kingdom comes, to forever reign.
 
Chorus:

Lyrics : Let The Past Be The Past
Created for a purpose, you were made to be like Him
Fashioned in uniqueness, with a treasure deep within
He saw all your days before you were ever formed
And all the angels celebrated the day that you were born.
But the world is full of darkness, and into your life, it came
So many things said and done that caused you grievous pain
And the times you felt alone when it seemed that no one cared
I want you now to know that He was always there....so
 
Chorus:
Let the past be the past, let go of the pain
Let the past be the past, come on now, throw off the chains
For He's made you to be, a light for all to see
Let the past be the past, it will set you free
 
Looking back on the years, the rejection, fear and shame
And the many times you looked for ways to escape the pain
But what you didn't see, what you failed to understand
He was always waiting for you, to come and take His hand.
 
Chorus:
 
Now each day is a new day, and the choice is yours to make
Will you take His hand or just continue your own way?
The answers to your questions can all be found in Him 
And His love is always waiting for You to ask Him in.
 
Chorus:
 
Bridge:
Forgive, let go, say good-bye to the pain
Forgive, let go, and you'll never be the same
 
A new day's dawning and all around
Your truth is breaking up the fallow ground
The ways of man are coming down
Your remnant is waking to a brand new sound 
 
The trumpet's sounding for all who'll hear
Your truth is exposing all pride and fear
Wisdom is calling “let all draw near”
Darkness is fleeing as Your light appears
 
Chorus:
It's time to see with new eyes, hear with new ears 
Know You in ways we've never known You before
It's time to wake to the truth, of all that You are
Open up our eyes, Lord reveal to us Your heart.
 
The sun is rising, the season's change, 
Your truth is shattering the prisoner's chains
Eyes once blinded now can see again
Your Kingdom comes, to forever reign.

Lyrics : I Was There
I was there at the beginning, I was there when you didn't know
I was there when you felt abandoned, rejected and alone
I was there amidst the questions when you didn't understand
And I was there to carry you when you could no longer stand
 
I was there in the confusion, I was there amidst the lies
I was there when friends betrayed you when no one took your side
I was there when hope was stolen when your dreams began to die
And I was there to comfort you, and hold you when you cried.
 
Chorus:
I was there, I was there when it seemed that no one cared
I was there, I was there, for all the weight you couldn't bear
I was there, in the darkness, amidst the pain and fear
I was there, I was there, and even now I'm here.
 
I was there at your conception, I was there when you were born
I was there when you took your first step and walked all on your own
I was there as you were growing, and I want you now to see 
I was there in every moment, leading you home to Me.
 
Chorus:
 
Bridge:
I have always been, and I will always be, 
There right beside you, I will never leave.

Lyrics : At The Place Of Your Deepest Pain
What do you do when your world falls apart
What do you do when grief breaks through and overwhelms your heart 
When the weight grows so heavy, that you don't know what to do
There is One who's watching, and He is there for you
 
What do you do with the anger that rages inside
What do you do, when all that you knew, is gone in moments time
When your questions have no answers, not even the reason why
There is One who''s watching, and He hears your every cry. 
 
Chorus:
At the place of your deepest pain, beats the Heart of the Greatest Love
At the place of your deepest pain, lies the hope that you're dreaming of                   
It's there in the darkness, where fear stalks your wounded soul
It's there in the darkness, that His love can make you whole.
 
What do you do with the voices that come to condemn 
What do you do thinking it through, wanting to go back again
When life is wrapped in sorrow, that shrouds your day and night
There is One who's watching, and He knows the war you fight. 
 
Chorus:
 
What do you do when the bitterness turns you away?
What do you do when they come to you, to help ease your pain 
When You're crying out for justice, and you want someone to pay
There is One who's watching, and He has made a way...so 
 
Bridge:
Open up your heart, let His light come in 
Open up your heart, give the pain to Him
 
Chorus:

Lyrics : All That You Are
I know your heart, 
I've known you from the start
And I planned for you to be here at this time
All that you've seen
All that you've known, every place you've been
Was part of the journey, that brought you, to place your hand in Mine
 
Down through the years
I saw the hurt, the pain, the tears
And I called to you in the darkness of your soul
All you went through 
All that you lived, I lived it too
It was part of the journey, to bring you, healing and make you whole.
 
Chorus:
All that you are, you are in Me
All that you are, you're just beginning to see
All that you are, all that you'll be
Is your's to discover, day by day with Me
 
I am the way
I am the One who has brought you to this day
And I'm calling you to come and know My heart
All you will need
I put in place before you came to be
It's part of the journey, to show you, how precious you really are.

Lyrics : You Can't Walk The Road For Others
Chorus:
You can't walk the road for others, you can't take their pain
You can't learn their lessons for them, you can't break their chains
You can't open up those prison doors, for you don't hold the keys
You can't walk the road for others, no, you can't set them free.
 
Well, you might want to help them, but you don't know the way
And the signs that you once followed, won't help you today
Your degrees and earthly wisdom, all of it will fall
You can't walk the road for others, you can't walk that road at all.
 
Chorus:
 
Now, man's rules and traditions, have no power to save
And all your works of righteousness, well they'll just fade away
Obedience, not sacrifice is what I ask of you
You can't walk the road for others, you're called to be, not called to do.
 
Chorus:
 
“To see the need is to hear the call”, is religion taught of men
If you want to make a difference, then, just simply take my hand
For it's only as you know me, that my light through you can shine
You can't walk the road for others, so just keep your hand in mine.
 
Chorus:

Lyrics : Woe To Those Who Call Evil Good
The fox is in the hen-house, the wolf is with the sheep 
Yet no one seems to realize, cause the shepherds are asleep
The fear of disapproval, and the need for people's praise                                                        
The Word is made non-effect, and deception has its way
 
The truth is simply relative, we must soften our approach 
We'll tell them what they want to hear, we'll make them feel at home
Black and white now is grey, for there's no need to offend 
Some things just aren't important, if it means we can't be friends.
 
Chorus:
Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil
Woe to those who turn darkness to light, and light to darkness
Who substitute bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter 
Who are wise in their own eyes, and clever in their own sight
 
Sin and blood, and sacrifice, aren't the message for today
Let's just keep it simple, and talk about God's grace
His mercy extends to everyone, Her love embraces all
Good and bad now have no place, let's break down every wall. 
 
Chorus:
 
The fox is in the hen-house, the wolf is with the sheep
His Spirit now is calling, but the shepherds are asleep
His Truth is being perverted, and His Word is being maligned
But His voice will not be silenced, and in the darkness, He will shine
 
Chorus:
