. . .


God love a lulluby
In a mother's tears at night
Better than a Hallelujah sometimes

God love the drunkard's cry
The soldier's plea not to let him die
Better than a Hallelujah sometimes

We pour out our miseries
God just hears a melody
Beautiful, the mess we are
The honest cries of breaking hearts
Are better than a Hallelujah

The woman holding on for life
The dying man giving up the fight
Are better than a Hallelujah sometimes

The tears of shame for what's been done
The silence when the words won't come
Are better than a Hallelujah sometimes

We pour out our miseries
God just hears a melody
Beautiful the mess we are
The honest cries of breaking hearts
Are better than a Hallelujah

Better than a church bell ringing
Better than a choir singing out, singing out

We pour out out miseries
God just hears a melody
Beautiful, the mess we are
The honest cries of breaking hearts
Are better than a Hallelujah

We pour out our miseries
God just hears a melody
Beautiful, the mess we are
The honest cries of breaking hearts
Are better than a Hallelujah

(Better than a Hallelujah sometimes)
Better than a Hallelujah
(Better than a Hallelujah sometimes)

So, you've handed in your resignation,
contemplatin' why nothin' turns out right.
A little fed up with all the disappointments,
so what's the point in wastin' any time?

It's only temporary, so what's your hurry?
No need to worry. Don't you know that,

(chorus)
If it all just happened overnight,
you wouldn't know how much it means?
Ye-ah
If it all just happened overnight,
you would never learn to believe
in what you cannot see,
oo-oh
what you cannot see.

I feel like pace is at a standstill.
Do I wait till it falls into my hands?
A long highway ahead, gettin' started.
Steady hearted, is what I think I am.

There's somethin' to be said for experience.
Who knows what's ahead. Keep on goin'.

Chorus

(Take it a day, a day at a time)
One foot in front of the other,
(Take it a day, a day at a time)
No need to hurry, hurry.
(Take it a day, a day at a time)
It won't happen over night.
It won't happen over night.

Have a little faith,
(Have a little faith)
Must appreciate,
(Must appreciate)
Every single day,
Don't give up, no.
2x

(Amy Grant and Wayne Kirkpatrick)

There you go making mountains
Out of such a little hill
Here I go mixing mortar
For another wall to build
There's a struggle in this life we lead
It's partly you
It's partly me (but)

Every road that's traveled
Teaches something new
Every road that's narrow
pushes us to choose
And I'd be lying if I said
I had not tried to leave a time or two
But every road that leads me
Leads me back to you

Here we stand in the middle
Of what we've come to know
It's a dance, it's a balance
Holding on and letting go
But there is nothing that we can't resolve
When love's at stake
When love's involved

. . .


Woke up this morning
with you in our bed
going over and over
everything you said
Who talk you how to speak
the words that you say
I've always wanted to
be talked to that way
Love has made
has made you unafraid

Watching my children
finding their way
thru struggles and triumphs
and heartbreak
I hope the roads they take
Are making them strong
I'll still be on my knees
Long after they're gone
Love has made
Love has made
Love has made
Has made me unafraid

My lovely mother
Is getting on in years
And the way her body's aging
brings her girls to tears
The way she trembles with
each effort she makes
She just says Heaven's
getting closer each day
Love has made
Love has made
Love has made
Has made her unafraid

Love could make
Love can make
Love will make
Make you unafraid...

. . .


I smile when I remember all the things we did
The worlds we discovered when I was a kid
Sitting on your shoulders I was riding high
All of life before me I could see for miles
You gave me a life to love
Showed me the dreams I was dreaming of
Told me love was enough

(Chorus)
When hard times come – hard times come
Hard times come for everyone
Hard times come – hard times come
And they'll come till we're done

Lately I've been standing on my own two feet
There's a pair of watchful eyes staring up at me
I will turn them to the sunrise
Turn them toward the stars
Where the beauty of a new day will always fill the heart
Give you a life to love
Show you dreams you were dreaming of
Just let love be enough

Repeat Chorus

Making you measure what you're made of
Helping you galvanize the love

Repeat Chorus

. . .


Tonight I've been counting railroad cars
Clinking and grinding into the dark
One of them passed with an open door
And I pictured myself jumping on board

What is the chance of that?
What is the chance of that?

I'll always had this thing about trains
A lonesome sound like a man in pain
Going somewhere they don't lose track
Some folks leave and they don't look back

What is the chance of that?
What is the chance of that?

I have believed since I was a little bitty girl
That there were rules of cause and effect
And they slowly shaped my world
But pain and hard times they come and they go
Like some blindfolded angel somewhere saying
Eeny meeny miny moe

What is the chance of that?
What is the chance of that?
What is the chance of that?
What is the chance of that?

Why do I feel restless inside?
Maybe I'm part of a wandering tribe
I want to check my family tree
I think there's a little nomad in me

What is the chance of that?
What is the chance of that?

Life is a thing you drink in deep
The journey is hard and the journey's sweet
Maybe I'll search and maybe I'll find
Things I wanted were already mine

What is the chance of that?
What is the chance of that?

I have believed since I was a little bitty girl
That there were rules of cause and effect
And they slowly shaped my world
But pain and hard times they come and they go
Like some test of faith that purifies my
Weak belief into something gold

What is the chance of that?
What is the chance of that?
What is the chance of that?
What is the chance of that?

What is the chance of that?
What is the chance?
What is the chance of that?
What is the chance of that?

What is the chance of that?
What is the chance of that?

Tonight I've been counting railroad cars
Clinking and grinding into the dark
One of them passed with an open door
And I pictured myself jumping on board

What is the chance of that?
What is the chance of that?

. . .


(Amy Grant and Wayne Kirkpatrick)

So much pain and no good reason why
You've cried until the tears run dry
And nothing else can make you understand
The one thing that you held so dear
Is slipping from your hand
And you say

Why, why, why
Does it go this way
Why, why, why
And all I can say

Somewhere down the road
There'll be answers to the questions
Somewhere down the road
Tho' we cannot see it now
And somewhere down the road
You will find mighty arms reaching for you
And they will hold the answers at the end of the road

Yesterday I thought I'd seen it all
I thought I'd climbed the highest wall
Now I see the learning never ends
And all I know to do is keep on walking
Walking 'round the bend singing

Why, why, why
Does it go this way
Why, why, why
And all I can say
Somewhere down the road
There'll be answers to the questions
Somewhere down the road
Tho' we cannot see it now
And somewhere down the road
You will find mighty arms reaching for you
And they will hold the answers at the end of the road

What if I were that mother staring from my TV
What if that were my brown-eyed baby
Hungry as she could be
What if that were my family
What if that was my world
Waiting on water waiting on a vaccine
Waiting on someone to bring me a bag of beans
Lord have mercy on me
Lord have mercy on me
Lord have mercy on me
Lord have mercy on me

What of I was that mother and I was waiting on me
The big success so well dressed on the other side of the sea
Living with my distractions
Life's been good to me
Maybe she's praying
Praying for a miracle
Maybe the answer is me

Lord have mercy on me
Lord have mercy on me
Lord have mercy on me
Lord have mercy on me

I was born in Georgia where I could do as I pleased
And I can get my hands on just about anything I might need
Who's that third world woman
Maybe she could be
Could be mother, could be daughter
Could be sister to me

Lord have mercy on me
Lord have mercy on me
Lord have mercy on me
Lord have mercy on me

What would they find if they uncovered all my tracks
Of roads I'd snuck down and darkness and never turn back
Well they'd find what they're looking for
Secrets and so much more
What would they find if they searched for a heart of gold
They'd find sacrifices of time and money never told
Yeah they'd find what they're looking for
Kindness and so much more

(Chorus)
Cause there's so much good in the worst of us
So much bad in the best of us
It never makes sense for any of us
To criticize the rest of us
We'll just find what we're looking for
We'll find it and so much more

What would I find if I turned back the time on your face
Could I piece together the memories that have made you this way
I might find what I'm looking for
Understanding and so much more

Repeat Chorus

Haven't we all learned the best life lessons
By falling and falling down hard
If we're looking for somebody's failures
We won't have to look very far

Repeat Chorus

What would they find if they uncovered all my tracks

. . .


Come into my world
Come crashing through the ceiling
And find the messy rooms, the scattered pearls
If you are brave enough then come into my world

Come into my world
So lovely from the outside
So dark in here the demons dance and twirl
And find their pleasure frightening this girl
If you are brave then come into my world

(Chorus)
Cause I never saw the changes come
Or knew enough to run when this old house had come undone
And now I'm buried in the walls
And no one comes to call but you
Come into my world

Come into my world
I can not find the doorway
It's overgrown with vines that twist and curl
If you are brave then come into my world

Come into my world
There'll be no other invitation
Not another sound another word
Nothing more than you've already heard
Please be brave and come into my world

Repeat Chorus

. . .



Lord I'm really glad You're here.
I hope you feel the same when You see all my fear,
And how I fail,
I fall sometimes.
It's hard to walk on shifting sand.
I miss the rock, and find there's nowhere left to stand;
I start to cry.
Lord, please help me raise my hands so You can pick me up.
Hold me close,
Hold me tighter.

I have found a place where I can hide.
It's safe inside
Your arms of love.
Like a child who's helped throughout a storm,
You keep me warm
In Your arms of love.

Storms will come and storms will go.
Wonder just how many storms it takes until
I finally know
You're here always.
Even when my skies are far from gray,
I can stay;
Teach me to stay there,

In the place I've found where I can hide.
It's safe inside
Your arms of love.
Like a child who's helped throughout a storm,
You keep me warm
In Your arms of love.

. . .


I can only imagine what it will be like
When I walk by Your side
I can only imagine what my eyes will see
When Your face is looking at me

Surrounded by Your glory, what will
My heart feel
Will I dance for You Jesus or in awe of You
Be still
Imagine, I can only imagine

I can only imagine all creation bowed down
The whole universe saying Your name out loud
I can only imagine all our broken lives
Resurrected in the healing light

Surrounded by Your glory, what will my
Heart feel
Will I dance for You Jesus or in awe of You
Be still
Will I stand in your presence or to my knees
Will I fall
Will I sing hallelujah, Will I be able to
Speak at all
I can only imagine, I can only imagine

Surrounded by forgiveness, what will my
Heart feel
Will I dance for You Jesus or in awe of
You be still
Will I stand in your presence or to my
Knees will I fall
Will I sing hallelujah, will I be able to speak at all

I can only imagine, Oh I can only imagine
I can only, I can only, I can only imagine
I can only imagine, just imagine
I can only imagine, imagine
~~
Sing the wondrous love of Jesus
Sing His mercy and His grace
In the mansions bright and blessed
He'll prepare for us a place
