It's time for letting go
All of our if only's
'Cause we don't have a time machine

And even if we did
Would we really want to use it?
Would we really want to go change everything?

'Cause we are who and where
And what we are for now
And this is the only moment
We can do anything about

So breathe it in and breathe it out
And listen to your heartbeat
There's a wonder in the here and now
It's right there in front of you
I don't want you to miss the miracle of the moment

There's only one who knows
What's really out there waiting
In all the moments yet to be

And all we need to know
Is He's out there waiting
To Him the future's history

And He has given us
A treasure called right now
And this is the only moment
We can do anything about

So breathe it in and breathe it out
And listen to your heartbeat
There's a wonder in the here and now
It's right there in front of you
I don't want you to miss the miracle of the moment

And if it brings you tears
Then taste them as they fall
And let them soften your heart

And if it brings you laughter
Then throw your head back
And let it go, let it go, yeah
You gotta let it go
And listen to your heartbeat, yeah

Breathe it in and breathe it out
And listen to your heartbeat
There's a wonder in the here and now
It's right there in front of you
I don't want you to miss the miracle of the moment

Breathe it in and breathe it out
And listen to your heartbeat
There's a wonder in the here and now
It's right there in front of you
I don't want you to miss the miracle of the moment

I'm just a well dressed bit
I'm just a made up mess
Working hard, trying to keep everybody impressed
All the while I'm falling apart on the inside

I look around to see
Is anyone like me?
First glance tells me I'm all alone in the sea
Then I look again a little deeper

And we're all in the same boat
We all just need to know

We're all broken, we're all broken
And we all need a Savior
Broken, we're all broken
And we all need a Savior
'Cause we're all broken

This is a fool's parade
The way we masquerade
Trying to make everybody think it's all okay
When the truth is we're all living a story

What if we all got brave
Enough to take away
All we're hiding behind even just for a day
And let the scars show even a little?

But I know the honesty
Will show us all to be

Broken, we're all broken
And we all need a Savior
Broken, we're all broken
And we all need a Savior

We don't have to pretend about it
We don't have to keep acting like we're all okay
If we lift our lives to the cross
We'll see some reality

That we're all broken
And we all have a Savior

Broken, we're all broken
And we all need a Savior
Broken, we're all broken
And we all need a Savior
We all have a Savior
We all need Jesus

She spins and she sways to whatever song plays
Without a care in the world
And I'm sitting here wearing
The weight of the world on my shoulders

It's been a long day and there's still work to do
She's pulling at me saying, "Dad, I need you
There's a ball at the castle and I've been invited
And I need to practice my dancing, oh please, daddy, please"

So I will dance with Cinderella while she is here in my arms
'Cause I know something the prince never knew
Oh, I will dance with Cinderella, I don't want to miss even one song
'Cause all too soon the clock will strike midnight and she'll be gone

She says he's a nice guy and I'd be impressed
She wants to know if I approve of the dress
She says, "Dad the prom is just one week away
And I need to practice my dancing, oh please, daddy, please"

So I will dance with Cinderella while she is here in my arms
'Cause I know something the prince never knew
Oh, I will dance with Cinderella, I don't want to miss even one song
'Cause all too soon the clock will strike midnight and she'll be gone
She will be gone

But she came home today with a ring on her hand
Just glowing and telling us all they had planned
She says, "Dad, the wedding's still six months away
And I need to practice my dancing, oh please, daddy, please"

So I will dance with Cinderella while she is here in my arms
'Cause I know something the prince never knew
Oh, I will dance with Cinderella, I don't want to miss even one song
'Cause all too soon the clock will strike midnight and she'll be gone

I walk the streets of London
And notice in the faces passing by
Something that makes me stop and listen
My heart grows heavy with the cry

Where is the hope for London?
You whisper and my heart begins to soar
As I'm reminded
Every street in London in Yours, oh yes, it is

I walk the dirt roads of Uganda
I see the scars that war has left behind
Hope like the sun is fading
They're waiting for a cure no one can find

And I hear children's voices singing
Of a God who heals and rescues and restores
And I'm reminded
That every child in Africa is Yours

And it's all Yours, God, Yours, God
Everything is Yours
From the stars in the sky
To the depths of the ocean floor

And it's all Yours, God, Yours, God
Everything is Yours
You're the Maker and Keeper
Father and Ruler of everything, it's all Yours

And I walk the sidewalks of Nashville
Like Singapore, Manila and Shanghai
I brush by the beggar's hand and the wealthy man
And everywhere I look I realize

That just like the streets of London
For every man and woman, boy and girl
All of creation
This is our Father's world

And it's all Yours, God, Yours, God
Everything is Yours
From the stars in the sky
To the depths of the ocean floor

And it's all Yours, God, Yours, God
Everything is Yours
You're the Maker and Keeper
Father and Ruler of everything

It's all Yours, God
It's all Yours, God
It's all Yours, God
It's all Yours, God

The glory is Yours, God
All the honor is Yours, God
The power is Yours, God
The glory is Yours, God
You're the King of kings
And Lord of Lords

And it's all Yours, God, Yours, God
Everything is Yours
From the stars in the sky
To the depths of the ocean floor

And it's all Yours, God, Yours, God
Everything is Yours
All the greatness and power
The glory and splendor and majesty
Everything is Yours, yeah, it's all Yours

It's all Yours
It's all Yours
It's all Yours

He's got a Bible and a megaphone standing on the corner
And everybody's saying he's crazy
Well, does he really think anybody wants to hear
What he has to say?

He's not screaming at anybody, in fact it's as if it's a love story
That he's trying to tell them
And he knows it may look a little strange
But he just smiles and says, "That's okay
'Cause you know sometimes love makes you act that way?

And it's crazy when love gets a hold of you
And it's crazy things that love will make you do
And it's crazy but it's true, you really don't know love at all
'Til it's making you do something crazy

I know a lady in Uganda, forty kids call her momma
And everybody thought it was crazy
She used to drive a Beemer but I've never seen her
Any happier than she is now

I've met them all around the world, they're the boys and the girls
Filled up with the love of the Father
And they know it may look a little strange
But they just smile and say, "That's alright
'Cause love puts everything in a different light?

And it's crazy when love gets a hold of you
And it's crazy things that love will make you do
And it's crazy but it's true, you really don't know love at all
'Til it's making you do something crazy

Crazy
Crazy when love gets a hold of you
Crazy, crazy
Crazy thing that love will make you do, crazy

Well, some might say it's a crazy thing
To believe in a man who would say He came
From Heaven down to earth because of love
But I just smile and say, "That's okay
'Cause you know sometimes love makes you act that way?

And it's crazy when love gets a hold of you
And it's crazy things that love will make you do
And it's crazy but it's true, you really don't know love at all
'Til it's making you do

Crazy when love gets a hold of you
And it's crazy things that love will make you do
And it's crazy but it's true, you really don't know love at all
Until it's making you do something crazy

Who are the treasured and the prized?
Who is the apple of God's eye? Who is?
We are, we are, we are

Who are the ones who bear His name?
Who are the children He has claimed as His?
We are, we are, we are

The ones God has sent His son to rescue
And now He calls us His own

We are the children of God
We are the children of God
We are the sons and the daughters
Almighty God is our Father

We are the children of God
We are the children of God
How can we keep from singing?
We are the children of God

La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la

Who'll keep the rocks from crying out?
Who are the voices that will shout His praise?
We are, we are, we are

Who are the ones who bear His name?
Who are the children He has claimed as His?
We are, we are, we are

How great the love the Father has shown us
That He would call us His own

We are the children of God
We are the children of God
We are the sons and the daughters
Almighty God is our Father

We are the children of God
We are the children of God
How can we keep from singing?
We are the children

And we will sing for joy
For the God on His throne
He has come for us
And called us His own

And we will sing for joy
As the dearly loved children of God
Come on, let's sing

La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la

We are the children of God
We are the children of God
We are the sons and the daughters
Almighty God is our Father

We are the children of God
We are the children of God
How can we keep from singing?
We are the children of God

La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la

You're up all night with a screaming baby
You run all day at the speed of life
And every day you feel a little bit less
Like the beautiful woman you are

So you fall into bed when you run out of hours
And you wonder if anything worth doing got done
Oh, maybe you just don't know
Or maybe you've forgotten

You, you are changing the world
One little heartbeat at a time
Making history with every touch
And every smile

Oh, you, you may not see it now
But I believe that time will tell
How you, you are changing the world
One little heartbeat at a time

With every, "I know you can do it"
And every tear that you kiss away
So many little things that seem to go unnoticed
They're just like the drops of rain, over time they become a river

And you, you are changing the world
One little heartbeat at a time
Making history with every touch
And every smile

Oh, you, you may not see it now
But I believe that time will tell
How you, you are changing the world
One little heartbeat at a time

You're beautiful, so beautiful
How you're changing the world
How you're changing the world

You, you are changing the world
One little heartbeat at a time
Making history with every touch
And every smile

Oh, you, you may not see it now
But I believe that time will tell
How you, you are changing the world
Oh, I believe that you, you are changing the world
One little heartbeat at a time

Hey, you're changing the world

. . .


Does it all sound the same?
Are my words getting through?
I've been trying so hard
That I'm about to break

So here I am with all I have

And I'm giving it all back to You
All back to You, I surrender
Yeah, I'm giving it all back to You
All back to You, this is my surrender
Take it all

And what song can I sing
But the song that You give?
I have nothing to bring
That did not come from Your hands

So here I am with all I have

And I'm giving it all back to You
All back to You, I surrender
Yeah, I'm giving it all back to You
All back to You, this is my surrender

All my prayers and all my dreams
I'm giving it all to You
I lay it all down at Your feet, I'm Yours
So what song can I sing but this song?

I'm giving it all back to You
All back to You, I surrender
I'm giving it all back to You
All back to You, this is my surrender
Take it all, take it all, Lord, take it all, take it all

. . .


So you think love is only for the good enough
And one thing you're never gonna be worthy of
But there's a song being sung over you
By the One who breathes life into you

You are being loved, you are being loved
Right now at this very moment
You are being loved, you are being loved
Right now, you are being loved, loved, loved
You are being loved, loved, you are

You ought to see the smile you're bringing to your Father's face
You ought to hear Him sing his version of Amazing Grace
'Cause that's the song being sung over you
By the God who breathes life into you

You are being loved, you are being loved
Right now at this very moment
You are being loved, you are being loved
Right now, you are being loved, loved, loved
You are being loved, loved, you are

And with every breath that you're taking
And every beat of your heart
Even while this song is playing
Whatever you do, wherever you are
There's a song being sung over you

You are being loved, you are being loved
Right now at this very moment
You are being loved, you are being loved
Right now, you are being loved, loved, loved
You are being loved, loved, you are

You are loved, loved, loved
You are being loved, loved, you are
You are being, you are being, you are being loved
You are being, you are being, you are being loved right now

There's a song being sung over you
There's a song being sung over you
There's a song being sung over you
There's a song being sung over you

You are being loved, you are being loved
(There's a song being sung over you)
You are being loved, you are being loved
(There's a song being sung over you)

You are being loved, you are being loved
(There's a song being sung over you)
You are being loved, you are being loved right now
(There's a song being sung over you)

There's a song being sung over you
There's a song being sung over you
There's a song being sung over you
There's a song being sung over you right now

. . .


Here come those words again
I run for cover, I'm dodging them
Still they seem to find the way
Around my best defense

Here come those little thoughts
Of all I ought to be but I'm not
I try talking to myself
And still I'm not convinced

I'm good, I'm bad
I'm everything in between
I'm this, I'm that
But [Incomprehensible]

It is Your love that defines me
And Your love that reminds me
It's not what I do

This life I live You have given
And in You I am hidden
This is what I know is true
That the definition of me is You, yeah

This ladder never ends
I climb up, then I slide down again
Still they say you've not arrived
Until you reach the top

But Your kingdom's upside down
It is the servant who wears the crown
First is last and last is first
And You're all that I'm not

'Cause I'm weak, You're strong
I'm empty 'til You fill me
I sing this song
To keep myself remembering

It is Your love that defines me
And Your love that reminds me
It's not what I do

This life I live You have given
And in You I am hidden
This is what I know is true
That the definition of me is You

I have been made by You
I have been saved by You
All that I am is all because of You

I'm weak, You're strong
I'm empty but You fill me
I'm singing this song
To keep my self remembering

It is Your love that defines me
And Your love that reminds me
It's not what I do

This life I live You have given
And in You I am hidden
This is what I know is true
That the definition of me is You, yeah

Yeah, definition of me is You
Definition of me
Definition of me
Definition of me is You

. . .


We come together with a holy purpose
We come together for the highest cause
We speak one language from a heart of worship
Gathered to bring the song to the world for Your glory

With one voice we will sing
Every tribe and every tongue brings a harmony
With one voice we will bring
Heaven's beautiful melody down to this earth
As we sing to our King with one voice

Oceans divide us but we sing together
Now what defines us is our love of You
From every nation and across all borders
Gathered to bring a song to the world for Your glory

With one voice we will sing
Every tribe and every tongue brings a harmony
With one voice we will bring
Heaven's beautiful melody down to this earth
As we sing to our King with one voice

Come on, come on and join the song
Our God, our God is on the throne
Come on, come on and join the song
Hallelujah, hallelujah

Come on, come on and join the song
Our God, our God is on the throne
Come on, come on and join the song
Hallelujah

Hallelujah, our God reigns
Let us all rejoice

With one voice we will bring
Heaven's beautiful melody down to this earth
As we sing, sing to our King with one voice
With one voice

Hallelujah, our God reigns
Let us all rejoice
Sing hallelujah, sing His praise
Let us all rejoice

Sing hallelujah, our God reigns
Let us all rejoice
Sing hallelujah, sing His praise
Let us all rejoice
Sing hallelujah, our God reigns
