Track Name: I am Yours today
Unto You, O Lord, I bring my life
Your staff will guided and comfort me
In You, O Lord, I put my trust
In you I take my refuge

Lord you know my folly
You know my blundering ways
I am here before you
I am yours today
I am yours today

Raise a song, sound the timbrel
Blow the trumpets all day long
You are my Rock, You are my fortress
Unto you do I sing my song
Unto you do I sing my song

And unto you, O Lord, I bring my life
Your word will guide and comfort me
In You, O Lord, I put my trust
In you I take my refuge

Father, you know my folly
Jesus, you know my blundering ways
I am here before you
And I am yours today
I am yours today
I am yours today
Track Name: Child of the King
Well there’s nothin’ too good for the children of the Lord
Ain’t nothin’ too nice for a child of the King
God’s blessed delights fill us with His tender love
Fruitful living is Agape giving and Agape is love

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah

Well now Christ is king, king over everything
Worthy for all glory and praise
He and the Ancient of Days and His Holy Spirit and love
Bless and keep His family in peace
The peace of the Holy Dove

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah

Children of God put your faith in the Lord
Hoping in Him and the coming day
When we will be united with Christ forevermore
Singing a song of praise and glory to the Lord

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah

Well there’s nothin’ too good for the children of the Lord
Ain’t nothin’ too nice for a child of the King
God’s blessed delights fill us with His tender love
Fruitful living is Agape giving and Agape is love
Yes, fruitful living is Agape giving and Agape is love
Well now fruitful living is Agape giving and Agape is love
Track Name: I'm living my life
I needed loving
And you came, came to love me
Oh, I wanted, I wanted my own way
Then you opened my eyes, so I could see

Now, I’m living my life for Jesus
And He’s living His life through me
He’s picked up all my broken pieces
And He’s taking good care, good care of me

I walked down life’s lonely streets
Gazing in the eyes of people passing by
Cold stares, planes and time quivered as I did meet
The child of God who showed me the way

Now, I’m living my life for Jesus
And He’s living His life through me
He’s picked up all my broken pieces
And He’s taking good care of me
He’s taking good care, good care of me
Yes He’s taking good care, good care of me
Oh He’s taking good care, mighty good care of me
Track Name: I can do it on my own
I can do it on my own
How many times have I said that phrase
I can do it on my own
Yet my life was just a maze
An endless dark highway of confusion
Leading nowhere quickly around the bend

I’m a self made man can’t ya see it
I stand alone a man among men
My record proves all my achievements
Only trouble I had no real friends
For a friend is someone you can depend on
Steadfast in love through the very end

Then one day I decided
Not to continue on in despair
If life had meaning I had to find it
Only a fool goes on who doesn’t care
I laid aside the façade I was wearing
Humbly looked upon the cross he did bare

In His eyes I was proud and stubborn
A disgusting offence to His way
I turned around looked unto Him
His love melted my chains away
I saw the light of life within Him
I know the truth and He set me free

To some this will be just another story
To others just another song
But if you don’t know my Lord Jesus
Ask Him soon and before long
If you mean it from your heart, he will show you
His Way, His Truth, and His love

I can’t do it without Him
He supplies the very breath that I breathe
I can’t do it without Him
For in Him I receive all my needs

He bestows His loving kindness on His children
Tenderly taking care of His family’s needs
Without Him all will perish and be forsaken
With Him all will live, in love, eternally
Track Name: Love is
Love is patient, Love is Kind
Forever knowing, forever mine
I’ll be in Love, forever more
For I have entered through Love’s door

Love beckons with open arms
Casts out fear and all alarm
Brings peace to a troubled heart
Gives life a brand new start

Love is
What love gives
Its the life you live
In Love

Love will cause your heart to rest
Of everyone to think the best
Love endures it never fails
Love is Light and shall prevail

Love is
What love gives
He’s the life you live
In Love

God is Love
Track Name: Pray drink thee of my message
You who have ears pray drink thee of my message
Counsel in your hearts the words of my song

In time past, I have considered
If life is worth the living
To everything there is a season
Time to be born then die
Questioned I is life worth living
This I must know said I

Set out I upon my journey
I found despair in the hearts of men
Man killing his brother
Wars from the beginning of time
All I found under the sun
Was vanity of man’s mind

In my search I found folly
Working wisely at earthly chores
She was empty and useless
Her portion your just reward
So I turned and I considered
Was there really a Lord

Well I called upon the name of the Lord
He opened to me the gates of righteousness
Graciously He rendered me love
Touched me with understanding
Set me in His courts of praise
Gave me life for eternal days

Behold how good and how pleasant
It is for brothers to dwell together
In the unity of the Lord
Like a precious ointment poured
Running down my face and beard
Wiping away all my fears

All the rivers run into the sea
Yet the sea it is not full
Unto the place from which the rivers come
To there and from there they return
Does your life have meaning
Say I this you must learn

Now I’ll close, thank you for listening
Seek in wisdom and you to shall find
Purpose to life and meaning in a world of troubled times
Peace that passes understanding
Unity with the Divine
Track Name: Praise the Lord
Praise the Lord for the Lord is good
Praise the Lord for the Lord is great
And greatly to be praised

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Serve the Lord with gladness
Bless His Holy name
Praise Him all ye people
For He’s greatly to be praised

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Make a joyful noise unto the Lord
Make a joyful noise unto our God
For our God is worthy of our praise
Our God is worthy of all praise

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Serve the Lord with gladness
Bless His Holy name
Praise Him all ye people
For He’s greatly to be praised

Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Make a joyful noise unto the Lord
Make a joyful noise unto our God
For our God is worthy of our praise
Our God is worthy of all praise
Our God is worthy of our praise
Our God is worthy of our praise
Track Name: There's more to Life
Childcare, belly dancing, and macramé
Maybe you’re into a Shakespeare play
Metalwork, fencing, oceanography
Maybe your game is psycho-therapy

‘Bout all these things I’d like to say
They’re only here for today
There’s more to life than things to do
Open your eyes you’ll find it’s true

Clarinet, marketing, a degree in law
They’re all nice, but have a similar flaw
Accordion.. all the way to… zoology
Look very closely and you will see

Not to put your faith in finite things
Money, cars, or diamond rings
Cause when your time on earth does end
You won’t be takin’ them with my friend
In the end, Amen
Track Name: Together we will build His kingdom
Let’s build the kingdom children
Walkin’ hand in hand
We’ll handle our enemies by lovin’ them

Where there is sadness we’ll bring joy to people’s hearts
We’ll handle violence by sufferin’

Together, we will build His kingdom
‘Cause Christ gave man a new way to live
And don’t despair ‘cause there’s hope in Jesus
Stick it through with the Lord in prayer

You show wisdom with faith in your brothers
Open your hearts to understand

In all you do, do all for the sake of Love
Love is God and He is Jesus

Together, we will build His kingdom
‘Cause Christ gave man a new way to live
And don’t despair ‘cause there’s hope in Jesus
Stick it through with the Lord
Stick it through with Jesus
Holy Spirit help us in our prayers
Track Name: Come drink of His waters
Come drink of His water
Soak in His life
Drink, drink ye of Jesus
He’s the giver of Life

People waited down with burdens
Don’t know which way to turn
Hand it over to Jesus
Take up His yoke and learn

His yoke is light and easy
Refreshing to your soul
Give your life to Jesus
He will make you whole

Rest in Jesus, rest in love
Rest in joy and peace
Give all to Jesus and He’ll give to you
Eternal Life

People waited down with burdens
Don’t know which way to turn
Hand it over to Jesus
Take up His yoke and learn
Track Name: Blessed is the man
Blessed is the man who’s firmly planted
Like a tree planted by a stream of water, living water

Like a tree yields its fruit in its season
And its leaf does not wither
So shall you be if you are he

La da da…

Blessed is the man who lives by the law of love
His shall be the fruit of righteousness
Peace in abundant supply

La da da…
Track Name: The story of a Nazarene
Once there was a Nazarene
Who walked a lonely road
He carried on His shoulders
A great and heavy load

Persisting in the way of love
He drew men to His side
Giving to them the truth He was
He gave to men new Life

Do en do…

He taught among the multitudes
He healed the sick and blind
He showed to men the only way
Showing them the light

Accused before the governor
He spoke not a word
Innocent of the charges made
Yet beaten on and scourged

Do en do…

Crowned with thorns and spit upon
The lonely way He trod
Deserted by His followers
He was crucified by the mob

He died that day on Calvary
And was laid within the earth
He conquered over death and sin
To give men new birth

Do en do…

He rose from the dead victorious
And He showed Himself to men
His earthly body glorified
He ascended to come again

He now sits at the right hand
Of His Father, God
To judge the earth in righteousness
And in His Holy love

Do en do…

Once there was a Nazarene
Who walked a lonely road
He carried on His shoulders
A great and heavy load

Do en do…
Track Name: Like a child
Unless you come, like a child
You’ll never see the kingdom
Unless you give, all of yourself
You’ll never know real freedom

For the kingdom of God
Is made of such as these
Children trust your Father’s loving hand
Give to Him your all, trust Him and obey

And the kingdom of God is yours today
And if you come, like a child
You will see the kingdom
And if you give, all of yourself
You will know real freedom

For the kingdom of God is made of such as these
Children trust your Father’s loving hand
Give to Him your all, Trust Him and obey
And the kingdom of God is yours today

The kingdom of God is made of such as these
Children trust your Father’s loving hand
Give to Him your all, trust Him and obey
And the kingdom of God is yours today
Yes the kingdom of God is yours today
O, the kingdom of God is yours today

Lord, make me an instrument of Thy peace
where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there’s despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy

O Divine Master
grant that I may not so much
seek to be consoled as to console
to be understood, as to understand
to be loved as to love

for it is in giving that
we receive
it is in pardoning
that we are pardoned
and it is dying
that we are born to eternal life

As I have loved you
Live in peace with your brothers
