Track Name: Just As I Am (You Can Have All Of Me)
Just as I am, without one plea,
But that Thy blood was shed for me,
And that Thou bidst me come to Thee,
O Lamb of God, I come, I come.

Just as I am, and waiting not
To rid my soul of one dark blot,
To Thee whose blood can cleanse each spot,
O Lamb of God, I come, I come.

Just as I am, though tossed about
With many a conflict, many a doubt,
Fightings and fears within, without,
O Lamb of God, I come, I come.

Just as I am, poor, wretched, blind;
Sight, riches, healing of the mind,
Yea, all I need in Thee to find,
O Lamb of God, I come, I come.

You can have all of me, You can have every part
Here I am, Just as I am

Just as I am, without one plea,
But that Thy blood was shed for me,
And that Thou bidst me come to Thee,
O Lamb of God, I come, I come.
Track Name: Beautiful Savior (Three In One)
Beautiful Savior, King of Creation,
Son of God and Son of Man!
Truly I'd love Thee, Truly I'd serve Thee,
Light of my soul, my Joy, my Crown.

Fair are the meadows, Fair are the woodlands,
Robed in flowers of blooming spring;
Jesus is fairer, Jesus is purer;
He makes our sorrowing spirit sing.

Fair is the sunshine, Fair is the moonlight,
Bright the sparkling stars on high;
Jesus shines brighter, Jesus shines purer,
Than all the angels in the sky.

Beautiful Savior, Lord of the nations,
Son of God and Son of Man!
Glory and honor, Praise, adoration,
Now and forevermore be Thine!

The stars they shine, shine, shine so bright
Bright, bright, bright like the sparks, sparks sparks
Sparks in your eyes, eyes, eyes, eyes

The rivers they run, run, run so clear
clear, clear, they fall like the tears, tears, tears
Tears of your joy, joy, joy, joy

The mountains they shout, shout, shout to the sky
Sky, sky, their voices rise, rise, rise
Oh they make you smile, smile smile

The people we sing, sing, sing, sing to you Father
Father, Father, sing to you Son, Son, Son
Sing to you Spirit, Spirit, Spirit, Three in One

Praise praise the Father, praise the Son
And praise the Spirit Three in One
Track Name: Be Thou My Vision
Be thou my vision O Lord of my heart
Naught be all else to me save that thou art
Thou my best thought by day or by night
Waking or sleeping, thy presence my light

Be thou my wisdom and thou my true word
I ever with thee and thou with me Lord
Thou my great Father, I thy true son
Thou in me dwelling and I with thee one

Riches I heed not nor man’s empty praise
Thou my inheritance now and always
Thou and thou only first in my heart
High King of heaven, my treasure thou art

High King of heaven, my victory won
May I reach heaven’s joy, o bright heav’n’s sun
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall
Still be my vision o ruler of all
Track Name: Spark My Heart
Thru dangers toils and snares I run, to you my God oh brilliant Son
When all seems lost prone to dismay, you hold me fast you still my sway
Tho enemies surround me now, they can not stop, they know not how
The light, the warmth, of your embrace, you spark my heart you fuel my race

You spark my heart you fuel my race
You spark my heart you fuel my race

So treachery can try it’s best, destruction, darkness and the rest
So strong I am because I stand, on you my God, the great I Am
Nor height nor depth shall worry me, nor fire, winds, or raging seas
Will sway me from my love for you, my God my friend my savior true

My God my friend my savior true
My God my friend my savior true

You are my first love, none like you, no one
You have my whole heart, you are my only one
Track Name: My Hope Is Built (In You Alone) feat. Page CXVI
My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus' blood and righteousness;
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly lean on Jesus' name.
On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand.
All other ground is sinking sand.

When darkness veils His lovely face,
I rest on His unchanging grace;
In every high and stormy gale
My anchor holds within the veil.
On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand.
All other ground is sinking sand.


His oath, His covenant, and blood
Support me in the whelming flood;
When every earthly prop gives way,
He then is all my Hope and Stay.
On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand.
All other ground is sinking sand.

When He shall come with trumpet sound,
Oh, may I then in Him be found,
Clothed in His righteousness alone,
Faultless to stand before the throne!
On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand.
All other ground is sinking sand.

We build our house on you
We place our trust in you
Our hope is found in You alone
We build our house on you

When darkness takes our sight
And straining has made us blind
Our hope is found in You alone
When darkness takes our sight

When rulers rule by fear
Your rule of love will still be here
Our hope is found in You alone
When rulers rule by fear

And if justice doesn’t come
In this life, under this sun
Our hope is found in You alone
If justice doesn’t come

But justice come, justice come
Roll on down the hills, come on
Roll on through the prairies deep
Roll on o’er the mountains steep
Roll on through the deepest seas
Justice come, justice come

We build our house on you
We place our trust in you
Our hope is found in You alone
We build our house on you
Track Name: How Great Thou Art (Fresh Cut Flowers)
O Lord my God, when I in awesome wonder
Consider all the worlds Thy Hand hath made,
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder,
Thy pow'r throughout the universe displayed;

Then sings my soul,
My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art!
How great Thou art!

When through the woods and forest glades I wander
I hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees;
When I look down from lofty mountain grandeur
And hear the brook and feel the gentle breeze

Then sings my soul,
My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art!
How great Thou art!

But when I think that God, his Son not sparing,
Sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in,
That on the cross my burden gladly bearing
He bled and died to take away my sin

Then sings my soul,
My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art!
How great Thou art!

When Christ shall come, with shouts of acclamation,
And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart!
Then I shall bow in humble adoration
And there proclaim, "My God, how great Thou art!”

Then sings my soul,
My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art!
How great Thou art!

All creation shouts
With beauty resounds
It says to me, that we should sing
Hallelujah

So the people sing
With the choirs of heaven
Our melodies, so beautiful
Hallelujah

And the trumpet sounds
Like fresh cut flowers
It’s heralding, your great name
Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, how great Thou art

Then sings my soul,
My Saviour God, to Thee,
How great Thou art!
How great Thou art!
Track Name: Mighty Refuge (Guard My Heart)
A mighty refuge is our God, a shelter never failing;
Defender of the helpless ones, a steadfast shield prevailing
But oh my God, this world, great woe and strife unfurled
Has born the sins of flesh, we’ll not survive unless
We turn our hearts back to God

Would we in our own strength confide, our striving would be losing;
The Man of Peace right by our side, our greatest fears removing:
You ask who that may be? Christ Jesus, it is He;
Lord Sabaoth, His Name, from age to age the same,
In Him our weakness made strong

The Body Christ has made his Bride, her beauty by him magnified
She’ll be known by her love, her life, she’ll give her all, she’ll sacrifice
For those who mourn in tears, for those whose hearts are pure
For hungry and thirsty, for those who seek his peace
His kingdom is forever.

Guard my heart with your righteousness
This faith will be my trusted shield
Guard my mind with salvation
Give me hands that can heal

Fit my feet with your Gospel shoes
Buckle my waist with your truth
Make sharp the sword of your Spirit
Give me songs full of you

Let my mind be made new
Let my heart be set on you
Let my words flow from you God
Let my life be found in you
