Lyrics:
Come, thou Fount of every blessing,
Tune my heart to sing thy grace;
Streams of mercy, never ceasing,
Call for songs of loudest praise.
Teach me some melodious sonnet,
Sung by flaming tongues above.
Praise the mount! I’m fixed upon it,
Mount of thy unchanging love.

Here I raise mine Ebenezer;
Hither by thy help I’m come;
And I hope, by thy good pleasure,
Safely to arrive at home.
Jesus sought me when a stranger,
Wandering far from the fold of God;
He, to rescue me from danger,
Interposed his precious blood.

O to grace how great a debtor
Daily I’m constrained to be!
Let thy goodness, like a fetter,
Bind my wandering heart to thee.
Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it,
Prone to leave the God I love;
Here’s my heart, take and seal it,
Seal it to thy courts above.

Lyrics:
I looked over Jordan, and what did I see,
Coming for to carry me home?
A band of angels coming after me,
Coming for to carry me home

Swing low, sweet chariot,
Coming for to carry me home
Swing low, sweet chariot,
Coming for to carry me home

If you get to heaven before I do,
Coming for to carry me home
Tell all my friends that I’m coming too,
Coming for to carry me home

Swing low, sweet chariot,
Coming for to carry me home
Swing low, sweet chariot,
Coming for to carry me home

Lyrics:
I will wait to see the day
Of your vine
Of your vine
Will you take to the hands of thine
This heart of mine
This heart of mine

There is a vineyard of the Lord
There is a vineyard for us all
With all our troubles left behind the door
We drink first light until the dawn

There is love
There is love
In the Lord

There is a forest built without the thorns
There is a vineyard of the Lord
We are all pillars in the store rooms of
His love and his mercy

There is love
There is love
In the Lord

Oh my soul oh my soul
Will drink you in will drink you in
So tell me Lord tell me Lord

Will you let me drink you in?

There is a vineyard of the Lord
There is a vineyard for us all
Well he’s burning up the clouds without remorse
Yeh they burn with his coming

The power to make the peace

To see the wounds that bind
All of humankind
May our shutter hearts
Greet the dawn of life
With charity and love

Lyrics:
I’ll take your words, over my thoughts
I’ll take Your truth, even when it hurts

It all comes down to you
You who make all things new
At the end of it all
The earth may crumble and the skies may fall

But I will not be swept away
Though my heart tells me to be afraid
But I will stand on what You say
And the promises You made

It all comes down to you, It all comes down to you
It all comes down to you in the end… my dear friend.

I’ll follow you, wherever you lead
I just want you, instead of me

It all comes down to You
You who make all things new
At the end of it all,
The earth may crumble and the skies may fall

But I will not be swept away
Though my heart tells me to be afraid
I will stand on what You say
And the promises You made

It all comes down to You
You who make all things new
At the end of it all,
The earth may crumble and the skies may fall

But I will not be swept away
Though my heart tells me to be afraid

I will stand on what You say and the promises You made
It all comes down to you, It all comes down to you
It all comes down to you in the end… my dear friend.
It all comes down to you, It all comes down to you
It all comes down to you in the end… my dear friend.

Lyrics:
This place is not my home
I’m standing on the edge of a great divide
When will I ever know
I’ve been walking on the line wondering when I’ll fall into the tide

There’s no place I would rather be than where you are
There’s no place I would rather be than where you are

This place is not my home
I’m standing on the edge of a great divide
When will I ever know
I’ve been walking on the line thinking one day I’ll fall into the tide

There’s no place I would rather be than where you are
There’s no place I would rather be than where you are

This is not my home, this is not my home

Lyrics:
Devastation
Oh, this house been laid low
Every window been cracked, and I’ve tried
But I just can’t keep out the coldDesperation
Oh, this soul been laid low
All of these changes that I can’t afford
That I can’t ignore

It’s not over now
Lift your eyes to the dawn
Oh, it’s comin’ on

A light has come
To this house that crumbled to the ground
And the morning shows
There’s still hope

Sweet consolation
Bringin’ that comfort to my soul
Let this heart be unbroken in ways
That I’ve never known, oh, but now I can know

It’s not over now
Lift your eyes to the dawn
It’s comin’ onOh, a light has come
To this house that crumbled to the ground
And the morning shows
There’s still hope

All of these bones, so tired and worn
All of my memories are burned out and torn
But that light kept comin’ on
And all of my memories are of beauty now
The beauty of light, pourin’ into every room of this house
Shinin’ all that darkness out

Oh, a light has come
To this house that crumbled to the ground
And the morning shows
Oh, it shows
A light has come
To this house that crumbled to the ground
And the morning shows
There’s still hope
