Hallelujah



HE ONE AND 99

Why me Lord? when i left you, abused you, crucified and cursed you
Why me Lord? when i continued to hold the nails that pierced through you.

You could have left me lost and taken care of all the rest
You could have written me off and kept the best
But you pursued me ...
the One and 99, the One and 99

Why me Lord? who am i but a vapor in the mist
Who am i Lord? - that the Creator of the universe would stop and even notice this?
That you would still have lowered yourself to become a man
To be mocked, betrayed, and suffer, and die to rise again
Even if i were still the only one ...
the One and 99, the One and 99
the One and 99, the One and 99

How many others Lord? Have you saved, delivered, healed, redeemed
How many others Lord? Are alive who were dead
Do they realize? Do they remember?
When they were … yeah
the One and 99
when they were
the One and 99
when we were
the One and 99
when we were
the One and 99
when we were …

ON YOUR ALTAR


I put it all - I've laid it all on Your altar
I put it all - I've laid it all on Your altar

Well You told me long ago that if I give it all to You
That You would give me too much more yeah
So I put my faith in You
I put it all - I've laid it all on Your altar
I put it all - I've laid it all on Your altar

Well there were changes in my life that I needed to go through
And even though it was hard for me
It was Your strength that kept me true
I put it all - I've laid it all on Your altar
I put it all - I've laid it all on Your altar

My sacrifices made are nothing to compare
To the life You gave me since I placed them there

And since that time has passed me by I give the glory all to You
'Cause You let me do what You will
So I lift it up to You
I put it all - I've laid it all on Your altar
I put it all - I've laid it all on Your altar (3x)

FATHER, FRIEND


When you found me I was part of who I am
Then You poured Yourself inside
Made me believe in Love again
'Cause I can call You Father
and I can call You Friend
And I know Your love for me never ends ... it never ends

Now You share my hopes, You share my heart, You share my soul
And everyday I look to Heaven
Praise the One for You I know
And I can call You Father
I can call You Friend
And I know Your love for me never ends ... it never ends

I've never known a Love like Your's - You give me strength
I want to hold on tighter, oh so tighter to You
Over and over and over again

Well I can call You Father
And I can call You Friend
And I know Your love for me never ends

Well I can call You Father
And I can call You Friend
And I know Your love for me never ends

... it never ends

THANK GOD (I've got you in my life)


Long ago a Son arose ... with Him the hopes of man
And His Father gave His life for us so we may live again
So I know I'll be alright - Yes, I know I'll be alright
I thank God I've got You in my life
I thank God I've got You in my life

Though the enemy invades my mind with his lies
I am shielded by the Truth that turned my darkness into light
And I know I'll be alright - Yes I know I'll be alright
I thank God I've got You in my life
I thank God I've got You in my life

I thank God I've got somewhere to run to
I thank God I've got Someone who cares ... who cares

'Cause days will come when trouble seems to leave no place to hide
And when the world does turn away I know Who's on my side
And I know I'll be alright
Yes, I know I'll be alright
I thank God I've got You in my life
I thank God I've got You in my life
I thank God I've got You in my life

I thank God I've got You in my
I praise God I've got You in my
I thank God I've got you in my life

GRACE (far away ... so close to you)


Will they ever let me forget how far I remember I was from you
Subtle silence - look away stares I know they don't mean to
But it carries me there to the mirage of guilt i
nto the shadow of death
far… so, far away

But I know nothing can separate me from your love
By His grace alone I have been sheltered from being torn
By grace you've assumed all my sins past, now until end
By grace i have lived to be reborn

At first, I intellectualized it's too good to be true
Was there a catch - something I left out
Is it so simple how I can be made all new?
But his grace is sufficient
to separate my sin from me
as east's from west
far, so far away ... so close to you
so far away ... so close to you

But I know nothing can separate me from your love
By His grace alone I have been sheltered from being torn
By grace you've assumed all my sins past, now until end
By grace i have lived to be reborn

How about the one's that should know better
Who have your Word hanging on their tongues
Hot air is blowing their sails and their rudders
Are lost … steering all wrong
Rocking the boat
well this man's overboard
stepped out in faith - walk to your call
so, far away ... so close to you
so far away ... close to you
far, far away ... close to you
far, far away ... so close to you
far away …

SLEEPING


You know the time has come now
you know the hour draws closer, see
stay, watch and pray with me still
the spirit is willing but the body is weak
so how are you sleeping?
so how are you sleeping?
sleeping now?

Temptation draws your eyes closed
you sleep as if tomorrow is here at hand
but resting breeds contentment
you're safe with the "God" you've made in your dreamland
but how are you sleeping?
so how are you sleeping?
sleeping now?

Don't get caught with your eyes glazed over
or lost in a mindless love coma
think you have it all
think you have it all

Soft-pillowed doctrines feel good
warm milky lies coat the truth
but you make the bed you lay on
when the thief comes, how will he find you
and how are you sleeping?
so how are you sleeping?
how are you sleeping?
so how are you sleeping?

Are you sleeping
are you sleeping
sleeping now

NAME


You want to take away your pain - deep inside
You wish you could start life again - and make it alright
Well I know a place to take your pain
And I know a way to start again ... It's Jesus

You ask me why I'm not afraid of the night
You wonder if there still is shame in that Light
But do you understand just how lives change
The power and the love that's in the name
Of Jesus … of Jesus, of Jesus, of Jesus

But what's his name ... The Deliverer
What's his name ... He's the Counselor
What's his name ... He's the Healer of your pain

But what's his name ... The Deliverer
What's his name ... He's your Counselor
What's his name ... He's the Healer of your pain
But what is his name ... He's your Victor
What's his name ... He's the Conqueror of your shame ... He's the Healer of your pain

It's Jesus, it's Jesus,
it's Jesus, it's Jesus, it's Jesus, it's Jesus (3x)
it's Jesus

SIMPLE MAN


I find it hard to comprehend
The massive Power in this simple man
To see the works of the Master's hands
Hour after hour on this simple man

You know He let's us choose
Those things He'll later use
In Him we'll never lose
Simple man

History has shown us again and again
How He's used the simple man
From Paul, Esther to Abraham
Were all in common to the simple man

And although we may not see
Just where this path may lead
Have faith He never leaves
The Simple Man

So many has He called in
So few will He choose - it's in His hands
This simple heart - This simple hope This Simple Man

Sometimes we fight it we don't understand
His destinies for the simple man
But to be part of the Master's plan
Is a loving gift from the Son of Man

And you know He let's us choose
Those things He'll later use
In Him we'll never lose
Simple man
Simple man
The Simple Man

HEAL THEIR LAND


So we watch the world go hungry
And we stand aside
And we hear the calls of thirst
But we give a sigh
Too much for us to handle
So little I can do
Let someone else take the burden
It's hard enough to keep myself in tune
If my people who are called by my name
Will humble themselves and pray
And seek my face and turn from their wicked ways
Then I will hear from heaven
And I'll forgive their sins and heal their land
Yes, I will heal their land

Broods now desecrate the pulpits
False Jesus' fill the screen
The Truth has been adultered
By the politically correct machines
Well you wonder there is killing
And you wonder there is death
Well we've worked so hard to get this
It's our rightful wages back
If my people who are called by my name
Will humble themselves and pray
And seek my face and turn from their wicked ways
Then I will hear from heaven
And I'll forgive their sins and heal their land
Yes, I will heal their land

Right morals have been left-ed
Left God for what's "right-for-me"
We've spiraled into what's so relative
Or what the 6 billion gods deem
Too scared to be "intolerant"
Too worried to be "extreme"
Jesus really meant for us to carry our cross
And that the world would hate our means.
If my people who are called by my name
Will humble themselves and pray
And seek my face and turn from their wicked ways
Then I will hear from heaven
And I'll forgive their sins and heal their land
Yes, I will heal their land
heal their land
heal their land

HALLELUJAH


Hallelujah ... Hallelujah Hallelu ... Hallelujah (2x)

HE fed the thousands on the mountain
HE healed the crippled, deaf and blinded too
If we're the children of this Power
Would HE do any less for me and you

and we sing ... Hallelujah ... Hallelujah Hallelu ... Hallelujah (2x)

And from the dead on the third day HE arose
To defeat death and sin and our Accuser too
And then HE baptized with HIS Spirit
And made a brand new life for me and you

and we sing ... Hallelujah ... Hallelujah Hallelu ... Hallelujah (2x)

Well the thief will try to rob us of the treasures that we find
And the lion wants to hunt us and destroy the life inside
But JESUS gave us power and in HIS Word we firmly hold
That Greater is HE who is in us than he who's in this world!

Ha - Hallelu - Hallelu - lujah (4x)

Hallelujah ... Hallelujah Hallelu ... Hallelujah (fade)
