In Christ Alone (bonus track)
. . .


I have been the wayward child
I have acted out
I have questioned Sovereignty
And had my share of doubt
And though sometimes my prayers feel like
They're bouncing off the sky
The hand I hold won't let me go
And is the reason why...

Chorus:
I will stumble
I will fall down
But I will not be moved
I will make mistakes
I will face heartaches
But I will not be moved
On Christ the Solid Rock I stand
All other ground is sinking sand
I will not be moved

Bitterness has plagued my heart
Many times before
My life has been like broken glass
And I have kept the score
Of all my shattered dreams and though it seemed
That I was far too gone
My brokenness helped me to see
It's grace I'm standing on

Chorus

And the chaos in my life
Has been a badge I've worn
Though I have been torn
I will not be moved

Chorus

. . .


Pack my bags and my regrets
Every second that I've wasted
Chasing after
My pursuit of happiness
Has only left me searching
There must be more

Take my life and lift me up to the sky
Take my dreams and help me to fly
On the wings of possibility
Come rewrite my history
(till it's) only you I'm chasing after
Take this life and make it matter

Help me give more than I take
Let me see into somebody else's heartache
And be the difference love can make
My heart is finding
There's gotta be, gotta be more

Take my life and lift me up to the sky
Take my dreams and help me to fly
On the wings of possibility
Come rewrite my history
(till it's) only you I'm chasing after
Take this life and make it matter

Only one life to live
Only one love to give
Only one life, only one love
So make it, make it matter

Only one life to live
Only one love to give
Only one life, only one love
So make it, make it matter

Only one life, only one love
I give my life
Yea,yea,yea

Pack my bags and my regrets
Take my life and lift me up to the sky
Take my dreams and help me to fly
On the wings of possibility
Come rewrite my history
(till it's) only you I'm chasing after
Take this life and make it matter
Make it, make it matter

Only one life to live
Only one love
Only one life
Make it matter

. . .


Strong on the outside
But coming apart at the seams
That's me
Tragically always together
But bruised underneath
That's me
I stand just to stumble
I trip on my pride
Why do I always try to hide

Meanwhile back at my heart
I'm desperate for all that You are
See through me and take me apart
Meanwhile back at my soul
Mend me,Lord, please make me whole
You know just where to start
Back at my heart, back at my heart

Patiently waiting to pick up
The pieces of me
That's You
Healer of hearts
When the world leaves it broken in two
That's You
Maker of heaven
The sky and the sea
When You stretched your arms
You reached for me

Meanwhile back at my heart
I'm desperate for all that You are
Undo me and take me apart
Meanwhile back at my soul
Mend me,Lord, please make me whole
You know just where to start

Back at my heart
Back at my fear
Back at my brokenness
Lord meet me here
I am exposed
And I'm not afraid anymore

Meanwhile back at my heart
I'm desperate for all that You are
Undo me and take me apart

Meanwhile back at my soul
Mend me,Lord, please make me whole
You know just where to start
Back at my heart
Back at my heart
Back at my heart
Back at my heart

Healer of hearts
When the world leaves it broken in two
That's You

. . .


Changing,
Everywhere I am
I been stuck in a rut, I been caught up
Yeah, it happens fast
Moving,
To where I wanna begin
I wanna find new life and see new eyes
And breathe again
(I'm gonna) stop now, take a breath
It's all so crazy

Chorus:
But I'm ready to let go
Looking forward to don't know
Forget about yesterday, get away
And live in the right now
Yeah, I'm ready to let go
And I'm ready follow
Anywhere the road bends
Where it ends I don't know
So let go

Oh, we live in the future
We got our regrets
Cause we don't live in
The present tense
(It's) hectic in my mind
(Gonna) leave it behind

Chorus

Don't wanna over think it
Don't worry so much
Gonna live this life
And not lose touch
I'm gonna let go

Chorus

. . .


It's hard to stand on shifting sand
It's hard to shine in the shadows of the night
You can't be free if you don't reach for help
And you can't love if you don't love yourself

But there is hope when my faith runs out
'Cause I'm in better hands now

It's like the sun is shining
When the rain is pouring down
It's like my soul is flying
Though my feet are on the ground

So take this heart of mine, there's no doubt
I'm in better hands now

I am strong, all because of You
I stand in awe of every mountain that You move
For I am changed, yesterday is gone
I am safe from this moment on

And there's no fear when the night comes 'round
I'm in better hands now

It's like the sun is shining
When the rain is pouring down
It's like my soul is flying
Though my feet are on the ground

So take this heart of mine, there's no doubt
I'm in better hands, yeah

It's like the sun is shining
When the rain is pouring down
It's like my soul is flying
Though my feet are on the ground

It's like the world is silent
Though I know it isn't true
It's like the breath of Jesus
Is right here in this room

So take this heart of mine, there's no doubt
I'm in better hands now

. . .


Never let 'em see you when you're breaking
Never let 'em see you when you fall
That's how we live and that's how we try
Tell the world you've got it all together
Never let them see what's underneath
Cover it up with a crooked smile
But it only lasts for a little while

Chorus:
There's no such thing as perfect people
There's no such thing as a perfect life
So come as you are, broken and scarred
Lift up your heart and be amazed
And be changed by a perfect God

Suddenly it's like a weight is lifted
When you hear the words that you are loved
He knows where you are and where you've been
And you never have to go there again

Chorus

Who lived and died to give new life
To heal our imperfections
So look up and see love. Let grace be enough

Chorus

By a perfect God [5x]

Be changed by a perfect God
Be changed

. . .


You would think only so much can go wrong
Calamity only strikes once
And you assume this one has suffered her share
Life will be kinder from here
Oh, but sometimes the sun stays hidden for years
Sometimes the sky rains night after night
When will it clear?

But our Hope endures the worst of conditions
It's more than our optimism
Let the earth quake
Our Hope is unchanged

How do we comprehend peace within pain?
Or joy at a good man's wake
Walk a mile with the woman whose body is torn
With illness, but she marches on
Oh, 'cause sometimes the sun stays hidden for years
Sometimes the sky rains night after night
When will it clear?

But our Hope endures the worst of conditions
It's more than our optimism
Let the earth quake
Our Hope is unchanged

Emmanuel, God is with us
El Shaddai, all sufficient
Emmanuel, God is with us
El Shaddai, all sufficient
Emmanuel, God is with us
El Shaddai, all sufficient

We never walk alone
And this is our hope

Our Hope endures the worst of conditions
It's more than our optimism
Let the earth quake
Let the earth quake
Let the earth quake
Our Hope is unchanged

. . .


Mystified by the struggle
To survive my own pride
Haunted by the demons
Of my past life
Who am I and why do I
Are questions that keep running
Through my mind
But underneath this shallow skin
A brand new me is comin' out,
Comin' out from within

So long
Farewell to my old self
Good-bye to the lie that I can't be someone else
Cause who I was ain't who I am
(I know that) I've been born again
Those stains of my history are gone, gone, gone
So long

Apathy, hunting me
Like some contagious disease
Hypocrisy hiding in the shadows
Of the former me
Doin' what comes naturally
I'm not who I want to be
I'm ready to, ready to be free

So long
Farewell to my old self
Good-bye to the lie that I can't be someone else
Cause who I was ain't who I am
(I know that) I've been born again
Those stains of my history are gone, gone, gone
So long
So long
So long

Na-na-na, na-na-na-na
Hey, hey, hey
So long

Na-na-na, na-na-na-na
Hey, hey, hey
So long
So long

Farewell to my old self
Good-bye to the lie that I can't be someone else
Cause who I was ain't who I am
(I know that) I've been born again
Those stains of my history are gone, gone, gone
So long
So long

. . .


Beautiful is in the sky
Watch it slowly
All our time is flying by, too fast
Where we're headed is so clear
To somewhere higher
And anything we want is here, right now

Cause the sun is shining
And the world is alive...and

Chorus
Everything's all right
And all you ever needed
It's a perfect day to be alive
So no more waiting now
For a wonderful life
Cause it's a wonderful life right now

Beautiful is in the eyes
Of a friend or a stranger
Souls searching in disguise, for love
We're all planning our escape
To something higher
Looking for a better way to feel

But the sun is shining
And the whole wide world is alive

Chorus

And the sun is shining
And it's so good to feel alive

Chorus

. . .


How did you know
That I'm all alone today
Oh I feel so scared
And I want to go away
I bleed so deep underneath
My soul is screaming

I'm not gonna hide
I'm not gonna run away
I'll uncover the scars
And show you every mistake
Your love is mending my blisters
And my bruising shame
Now I, I'm not ashamed.
Here with you
I am safe

Drowning the tears
Won't make it go away
It's robbing my soul
I'm taking this mask off my face
To discover love
And uncover all
It means to live and breathe

I'm not gonna hide
I'm not gonna run away
I'll uncover the scars
And show you every mistake
Your love has mended my blisters
And my bruise of shame
Now I, I'm not ashamed.
Here with you
I am safe
I am safe
I am safe
I am safe

You've uncovered and I've discovered
I am not afraid
But when we're hiding we're only fighting
To be sane

I'm not gonna hide
I'm not gonna run away
I'll uncover the scars
And show you every mistake
Your love has mended my blisters
And my bruise of shame
Now I, I'm not ashamed.
Here with you
I am safe
I am safe
I am safe
I am safe

She was only 17
Wild at heart and following her dreams
Believing she was pretty
Got a ticket to the city
Where she'd find her place on the cover of a magazine

It was only a chat room, but it would lead the way
To the door of a man where she'd throw it all away
He said they'd take it slow
But little did she know
She'd be all used up by the end of the day

But she was strong
And she would survive
Ambition would be her drive
And she said...

I'll make a way
I'll do whatever it takes
Even though it won't be easy
I have a plan and though I may not understand
Someday, I'll make a way

Where did she go wrong, how did she get here?
Livin' hard and looking older than her years
Miss Little Big Town
Trying to hold a job down
Doing what she could to choke her fears

But she was strong
And she would survive
A spark of hope had kept her dream alive
And she cried...

I'll make a way
I'll do whatever it takes
Even though it won't be easy
I have a plan and though I may not understand
Someday, I'll make a way
Someday, I'll make a way

Walking down the road
In the city where she'd come with so much hope
Her vision had long died
Along with all her pride
And she found herself at the end of her rope

But she heard angels through the door
Of a church she'd passed a million times before
There was a song of heaven ringing
And soon she found herself believing
That out there maybe there was something more

So she bowed her head to pray
And said, Jesus, please make a way

And she heard Him say...

I'll make a way
I'll do whatever it takes
Even though it won't be easy
I have a plan and though you may not understand
Today, I'll make a way

Hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah
Today He'll make a way

. . .


In Christ alone my hope is found,
He is my light, my strength, my song;
this Cornerstone, this solid Ground,
firm through the fiercest drought and storm.
What heights of love, what depths of peace,
when fears are stilled, when strivings cease!
My Comforter, my All in All,
here in the love of Christ I stand.

In Christ alone! who took on flesh
Fulness of God in helpless babe!
This gift of love and righteousness
Scorned by the ones he came to save:
Till on that cross as Jesus died,
The wrath of God was satisfied -
For every sin on Him was laid;
Here in the death of Christ I live.

There in the ground His body lay
Light of the world by darkness slain:
Then bursting forth in glorious Day
Up from the grave he rose again!
And as He stands in victory
Sin's curse has lost its grip on me,
For I am His and He is mine -
Bought with the precious blood of Christ.

No guilt in life, no fear in death,
This is the power of Christ in me;
From life's first cry to final breath.
Jesus commands my destiny.
No power of hell, no scheme of man,
Can ever pluck me from His hand;
Till He returns or calls me home,
Here in the power of Christ I'll stand.

I will stand
I will stand, all other ground is sinking sand
All other ground, all other ground
Is sinking sand, is sinking sand
So I'll stand
