Great Affection

God of my Awakening, I thank you for this day
And master of my breath, I thank You for the life to pray
O Jesus light behind my eyes, to You this praise I bring
And keeper of my heartbeat to Your rhythm now I sing

'Cause I've been seized by the power of Your great affection
Taken captive by the size and scope of Your amazing love
I'm so incapacitated that You'd send it my direction
You fill me up with Your huge love like a hand inside a glove

Architect of joy, all happiness comes from Your hand
Shepherd of my mind, You take the time to help me understand
O Jesus, light behind my eyes, it was for this I was made
Great composer on my heartstrings, now Your masterpiece is played

Father thank you doesn't seem enough for sending Jesus
And Jesus, no words can suffice to thank You that You died
I praise you, Hold Spirit, for it's your embrace that frees us
One yet three Your love for me the hope I hold inside, inside

I've been seized by the power of Your great affection
Overwhelmed and overcome by all the love You have to give
Savior, Your bright shining love light warms my soul with its reflection
You fill me up with Your huge love giving me the strength to live
Giving me the strength to live

Pour Out My Heart

Here I am once again, I pour out my heart
For I know that You hear every cry
You are listening
No matter what state my heart is in
You are faithful to answer
With words that are true and a hope that is real
As I feel Your touch
You bring a freedom to all that's within
In the safety of this place, I'm longing to
Pour out my heart, to say that I love You
Pour out my heart, to say that I need You
Pour out my heart, to say that I'm thankful
Pour out my heart, to say that You're wonderful
Oh, that You're wonderful

Use Me Here

Use me here, where I am
I'm not gonna pray anymore that You'll change your plans
Despite my fear, I place my life in Your hands
the future can wait, tomorrow might be too late,
So Jesus use me here

I lay my heart's desires at Your feet, oh Lord
Take all the plans I've made and all my dreams
Blinded by triumphs of tomorrow I've let sin control today
So many drowning within reach, Father it's time
You heard me say...

I tell myself I want to know Your will, oh Lord
Still I confess I've had plans of my own
But from now on I plan to listen to Your will and to obey
No matter what the future holds I'm gonna live for You today

Forever (The Nails In Your Hands)

The nails in Your hands, the nail in Your feet
They tell me how much You love me
The thorns on Your brow, they show me how
You bore so much shame to love me
And when the heavens pass away
All Your scars will still remain
And forever they will say just how much You love me
So I want to say,

Forever my love, forever my heart, forever my life is Yours
Forever my love, forever my heart, forever my life is Yours, it's Yours

Because You Are

I can't feel You like others around me
I don't feel like kneeling or closing my eyes
Is there something wrong with my heart that I can't see?
Or do You feel love still when nobody cries?

'Cause I know in my heart how bad I want to touch You
You must sense this love my soul barely contains
No lack of desire in this desert to worship
I keep singing skyward it just never rains

So I'll praise You if I never feel You
And I'll love you cause I know You're there
And if You should choose so I'm sure one day I'll feel it
But feeling good's never the reason I cared

Father, I praise You because You are
Jesus, I love You because You are
Spirit, I worship You because You are
And if no one can see that Your love's moving me
I worship You still and forever will
Because You are

Teach Me

Teach me to weep for the times that I've failed You
Teach me to wait Lord for Your hand to move
Teach me to watch for the dawn in my darkness
Teach me to walk in a way You'd approve

Take me, teach me to be more like You
All that you are Jesus I want to be
Take me, teach me to be more like You
Touch these blind eyes Jesus
I want to see

Teach me to wonder at all You've created
Teach me to whisper my thoughts in Your ear
Teach me to work at true love for my neighbor
Teach me to want the same things You hold dear

Take me, teach me to be more like You (x4)

Open My Life To You

I tear down my walls, throw open the doors
I can't keep my life to myself anymore
Jesus won't You come in and stay for awhile
You are my father, and I am your child

I open my life to You
I'll do what You want me to
No more will I fight the roads You've said are right
Turn Your eyes to my soul I relinquish control
I can't find peace on my own
So I lay down my life at the foot of Your throne

Creation To Creator

You made my hands so I will lift them to You
You made my eyes, I long to see Your face
You made my heart, so Jesus I could choose You
You made my knees
So now I kneel before You in this place

From creation to creator I acknowledge You as Lord
For without You I would have no life at all
Every breath I use to praise,
Drawn only as You have allowed
Designer of my heart I love You so
Just wanted You to know

You made my voice, You know me when I call you
You made my ears, I love to hear You speak
You made my feet so I could return to You made my mind to recognize
Without You I'm so weak

And though I may fall short
When on the worlds scale I've been weighed,
It's an honor just to know
That in Your image I've been made

Child Of God

Your life laid down crucified
Your arms stretched out and open wide
To rescue me so I could be a child of God
From nail pierced hands to thorn pierced brow
Your blood flows down to me somehow
It cleanses me so I can be a child of God

Praise to the lamb that was slain
Praise to the Father who gave His Son away
The proof of love, the price of grace
You traded all to take my place
You died for me so I could be
A child of God

My Jesus, I Love Thee

My Jesus, I love Thee, I know Thou art mine
For Thee all the follies of sin I resign;
My gracious Redeemer, my savior art Thou
If ever I loved thee, my Jesus, 'tis now

I love thee because Thou hast first loved me
And purchased my pardon on Calvary's tree;
I love for wearing the thorns on thy brow:
If ever I loved thee, my Jesus, 'tis now

I'll love Thee in life, I will love Thee in death,
And praise Thee as long as Thou lendeth me breath;
And say when the death dew lies cold on my brow,
If ever I loved Thee, my Jesus 'tis now

There Is A Redeemer

There is a redeemer, Jesus, God's own Son
Precious Lamb of God, Messiah, Holy One
Thank you oh my Father
For giving us Your Son
And leaving Your spirit 'till Your work on earth is done

Jesus, my Redeemer, Name above all names
Precious lamb of God, Messiah, Hope for sinners slain
When I stand in glory I will see Your face
There I'll serve my King forever in that holy place
