Track Name: Solution
Verse
It didn't work
The way I want
My plans just keep falling apart
So now my hope is in You
And only You
I turn my eyes to the sky
And I know You'll come through

Chorus
You are my solution
You never fail
So wont You lead me

Verse 2
Lets take a break
To reset my life
You can take control of all of me
I see the stars dance with You
And only You
I turn my eyes to the sky
And I know You'll come through

Bridge
How can I doubt You
How can i doubt You
When Your glory fills the sky
You hold the heavens
You hold the earth
So I trust
That You're holding my life
Track Name: Take Control
Verse
You give me air
Breath in my lungs
You make my heart
Beat like a drum
So I will give up
Fall to my face
My life is now Yours
Yours to invade

Pre
You gave Your life
So I'll give my life away

Chorus
I give You my soul
Now You take control
Take control of my atmosphere
Take control of me from here on
I give You my soul
Now You take control
Take control of my atmosphere
Tell me when to breathe in
And when to breathe out

Verse 2
You write the lines
And I'll just repeat
You set the groove
And I'll dance to Your beat
Break me apart
Build me again
My life is now Yours
Yours till the end
Track Name: Snow
Verse
If white is a reflection of purity
Then I am filthy from the stains of yesterday   
If holiness is the standard i need to bring
Then I am in debt with no way to pay

Pre                              
Your grace is stronger
Your grace is stronger

Chorus
Oh the blood
Oh the blood
Is stronger than the stains of my soul
Your crimson flood
Oh Your crimson flood
Can wash me whiter than snow

Verse 2                                                                                
If righteousness is what you desire of me
Then I feel inadequate to look upon your face.
My ghosts seem stubborn and relentless
No matter what I try myself I can’t drive them away

Bridge                              
Your grace is stronger
Your grace is stronger than it all
Track Name: Save Me A Seat
Verse
You look at me like I did you wrong
I show my hand but you move along
My hand stays cold as you meet and greet
I show a smile but you hide your teeth

Pre
I’m here at the door now please just let me in

Chorus
Save me a seat and maybe I’ll stay longer
Hold my hand and maybe I’ll get stronger
I know I’m no greater than the least of these
But I hear there’s someone here who died for me
So save me a seat at your church please

Verse 2
Perfect homes, healthy family trees
Your Religion, your prestige
Lofty saints in suits and ties
Look at me with their judging eyes

Verse 3
Three divorces, abuse and pain
Got no bachelors to my name
Lost all the friends that I call dear
Fought through life and barely made it here
Track Name: Parachute
Verse
I will trust You despite
All the doubts in my mind
And though I cant see the ground
Though I cant see a light
I will answer when You call
May seem crazy but You're there through it all

Chorus
You're my parachute
I can fall through the sky
I can fly through the night with You
I can jump from the heights
Know that I'll be alright with You

Verse 2
You are here with me now
And the wind's running wild
You said don't be afraid
I am right by your side
I face my fears and I take this fall
May seem crazy, but You're there through it all

Bridge
Gravity has taken it's toll
Still I feel Your embrace
I'm glad I jumped
I'm living by faith.
I’m holding onto You
Whats the point of gaining the world         
If i lose my soul as I wait for this life to land safe
Track Name: One Life
Verse
There's a fire in my heart
And it burns for the weary
I can not rest, I must tell them
That my Jesus can save them

Chorus
You only got one life to live
One life to live
To tell the world of the one
Who died to save your soul
I only got one life to live
One life to live
To tell the world of the one
Who died to save my soul

Verse 2
There's a fountain in my spirit
An ocean of living water
I will make waves I'll make splashes
And his love will overflow

Bridge
Everybody thinks they're good to go
They're breathing in and out of a broken soul
Somebody please just let them know
They're walking into a fire
Nobody wants to hear a song
About the wrath of God
Nobody wants to share the other view
That they’re saved through the cross              
My God! Won't you help us understand
That we only get one chance
To tell the world about You
Track Name: King and the Harlot
Verse
He saw sadness in her eyes
She was made dance, and made for joy
But she had lost her smile
There was something about His love
Afraid to lose herself, she stopped herself
Ashamed of what she brings

Pre
She tried to lead herself
But ended in the dark
He did not stand back and watch

Chorus
Oh what an ending
A beautiful finish
The way You rescued her heart
Oh what an ending
A beautiful finish
The King has left His throne for the harlot in the dark

Verse 2
He desired to give it all
To bring her home, To make her whole
To redeem her from the fall
But she had made her choice not to stay
His broken heart was pushed aside
As she chose to run away

Bridge
I tried to lead myself
But ended in the dark
He did not stand back and watch

Chorus 2
Oh what an ending
A beautiful finish
The way You rescued my heart
Oh what an ending
A beautiful finish
The King has left His throne to save me from the dark
Track Name: Isaiah 6
Verse
In all your majesty
You're seated on the throne
Angels surround you
they sing to you alone
My words unworthy
beneath their holy noise
The coal has touched my lips
So I will raise my voice       

Chorus
I will go to the ends of the earth
Till the whole world has heard
The greatest love story
I will go to the ends of the earth
Till the whole world has heard
So here I am, send me

Verse 2
Highly exalted King
Your presence fills the earth
The temple's shaking
It cant contain your worth
I've seen your glory
I won't be silent now
You've given me words
So here I am send me out

Bridge
For all my days
I'll live to raise
My Savior's name
In all the earth
Track Name: Send the Light
Verse
There’s a call comes ringing o’er the restless wave
Send the light Send the light
There are souls to rescue, there are souls to save
Send the light Send the light

Chorus
Send the light, the blessed Gospel light
Let it shine from shore to shore
Send the light, the blessed Gospel light
Let it shine forevermore

Verse 2
Let us pray that grace may everywhere abound
Send the light Send the light
And a Christlike spirit everywhere be found
Send the light Send the light

Verse 3
Let us not grow weary in the work of love
Send the light Send the light
Let us gather jewels for a crown above
Send the light Send the light
Track Name: Starting Over
Verse
I broke your heart over and over again
Yet you remained, You still remained
By my side over and over again
You're breaking through my darkest night

Pre
Oh what a Friend I've found in You

Chorus
There's something about the way You love me
I'm longing for a love I cant deny, Your love I cant deny
There's something about the way You love me
Though I'm broken I know that the sun will rise
The warmest morning light

Verse 2
A ray is breaking through the clouds
To show a way, to make a way
My broken past, I could not escape
until You dawned on me

Bridge
You rose up
Oh Bright and Morning star,
So we could dance the night away.

Verse 3
I'm starting over, over again
My life begins, the day begins
