Just logged in to see what’s happening on this blog. I found this in my draft folder from 2010. It fits as my wife and I are moving on to the next thing God has for us. I made this 2 days before we made an international move to serve God abroad. Now we are moving to another country but our response is the same. Say Hi in the comments if you’re still around 🙂

Full Lyrics:

Where you go, I’ll go
Where you stay, I’ll stay
When you move, I’ll move
I will follow…

All your ways are good
All your ways are sure
I will trust in you alone
Higher than my side
High above my life
I will trust in you alone

Where you go, I’ll go
Where you stay, I’ll stay
When you move, I’ll move
I will follow you
Who you love, I’ll love
How you serve I’ll serve
If this life I lose, I will follow you
I will follow you

Light unto the world
Light unto my life
I will live for you alone
You’re the one I seek
Knowing I will find
All I need in you alone, in you alone

In you there’s life everlasting
In you there’s freedom for my soul
In you there joy, unending joy
and I will follow

Abandon Kansas HEAVEN COME MY WAY

Listen to the full song here.

Lyrics: Abandon Kansas

Full Lyrics:

I’ve always aimed higher, don’t let me off the hook.
We wrote a chapter, haven’t finished the book.
The high road’s the hard one, but doesn’t it feel right?

I wish I didn’t have to leave, but that doesn’t mean I’ll stay.
I’ve heard the call and I’ll answer anyway.

Heaven come my way, come my way.
I’ll go through the storm if I can hear you say,
“Help is on the way, on the way.”
It can’t be that far, take me to the stars.

You brought me this far, don’t bid me farewell.
Give me the courage to finish it well.
Keep my feet moving forward and my eyes above.

Heaven come my way, come my way.
I’ll go through the storm if I can hear you say,
“Help is on the way, on the way.”
It can’t be that far, take me to the stars.

Take me, take me where you are
Take me, take me to the stars
Take me, take me where you are

Heaven come my way, come my way.
I’ll go through the storm if I can hear you say

To the stars, where you are
To the stars
Oh take me home where you are
To the stars

Heaven come my way
Heaven come my way

Lyrics: Future of Forestry

Full Lyrics:

This chest is full of memories
Of gold and silver tears
I’ll give you more to own than
All of this
And I’ll give you more than years
For you were once a child of innocence
And I see you just the same
Your burdens couldn’t win or
Lose a thing
Oh, I’d tell you once again
But you’re always on the run

Slow your breath down
Just take it slow
Find your heart now, oh
You can trust and love again
Slow your breath down, just take it slow
Find your smile now, oh
You can trust and love again

If you leave I’ll still be close to you
When all your fears rain down
I’ll take you back a thousand times again
I’ll take you as my own
I would sing you songs of innocence
‘Til the light of morning comes
‘Til the rays of gold and honey cover you
In the sweetness of the dawn
But you’re always on the run

You’re not alone
You’re now a part of me
You feel the cure
I’ll feel the toil it brought you

I don’t normally post other people’s work on this blog but I felt this video is exactly where I am at the moment in my thinking.

There are some free songs from this album you can download here.

I’ve always wanted to do a full album of visual devotions. One for every song. Maybe this will be the album.

In the joy of Christmas this year, please pray for the residents of Iraq. Not many of us know what persecution is like, a lot of us have had lives of comfort. If you don’t know what is going on , please find out and then seek God.

Full Lyrics:

I have placed all my hope in a crucified man
In the wounds in his side, his feet and his hands
I have traded my pride for a share in his shame
And the glory that one-day will burst from his pain

I’ve abandoned my trust in the wise and the proud
For this fragile, mysterious weakness of God
And I dare to believe in his scandalous claim
That his blood cleanses sin for who ever
Will call on his name
Live or die here I stand
I’ve placed my hope in a crucified man

I believe as they beat on his beautiful face
He turned a torturer’s chair to an altar of grace
Where the worst we can do met the best that God does
Where unspeakable hate met the gaze
Of unstoppable love
At the crux of it all there he hangs
I’ve placed my hope in a crucified….

Man of sorrows man of grief
Will he stay beyond belief?

When the purest and best took the force of our curse
Death’s victory armada juddered into reverse…
And either we bow or we stumble and fall
For the wisdom of a suffering God
Has made fools of us all
I gladly admit that I am
But I’ve placed my hope in a crucified …

Man of sorrows man of grief
Will he stay beyond belief?

I have buried my life in the cold earth with him
Like a seed in the winter, I wait for the spring
From that garden of tombs Eden rises again
And Paradise blooms from his body
And never will end
He’ll finish all he began
Creation hopes in a crucified man

When I stand at the judgement
I have no other plan
I’ve placed my hope in a crucified man

Like the thief nailed beside him
I have no other plan
I’ve placed my hope in a crucified man

Tim Hughes – Here I am to Worship

Posted: November 13, 2010 in Tim Hughes

Tim Hughes - HERE I AM TO WORSHIP

Listen to the full song here.

Lyrics: Tim Hughes

Picture: http://www.flickr.com/photos/profilerehab/4401364523/

Full Lyrics:

Light of the world
You stepped down into darkness
Opened my eyes let me see
Beauty that made this heart adore You
Hope of a life spent with You

Here I am to worship
Here I am to bow down
Here I am to say that You’re my God

You’re altogether lovely
Altogether worthy
Altogether wonderful to me

King of all days
Oh so highly exalted
Glorious in heaven above
Humbly You came to the earth You created
All for love’s sake became poor

I’ll never know how much it cost
To see my sin upon that cross

Call:
Call upon the name of the Lord
And be saved

Full Lyrics:

I’m so bored of little gods
While standing on the edge of
something large
While standing here, so close to You
We could be consumed
What a glorious day

I give up, I lay down
Rest my face upon this ground
Lift my eyes to Your sky
Rid my heart of all I hide

So sweet this surrender

CHORUS:
How great Your love for us
How great our love for You
That grace could cover us
How great Your love

How marvelous, how brilliantly
Luminous, You shine on me
And who can fail to give You awe
To fear You, God, so sovereign and strong

What a glorious day
What a wonderful day, today
What a glorious day
What a wonderful day, today
Glorious day

Full Lyrics:

Out on the farthest edge
There in the silence
You were there

My faith was torn to shreds
Heart in the balance
And You were there

Always faithful, always good
You still have me
You still have my heart

I thought I had seen the end
Everything broken
But You were there

I’ve wandered at heaven’s gates
I’ve made my bed in hell
You were there still

Always faithful, always good
You still have me
You still have my heart

You have me, You have me
You have my heart completely
You have me, You have me
You have my heart completely

You have me, You have me
You have my heart completely
You have me, You have me
You have my heart

You have me, You have me
You have my heart completely
You have me, You have me
You have my heart completely

Full Lyrics:

When the music fades
And all is stripped away
And I simply come
Longing just to bring
Something that’s of worth
That will bless your heart

I’ll bring You more than a song
For a song in itself
Is not what You have required
You search much deeper within
Through the ways things appear
You’re looking into my heart

I’m coming back to the heart of worship
And it’s all about You
All about You, Jesus
I’m sorry Lord for the thing I’ve made it
When it’s all about You
It’s all about You Jesus

King of endless worth
No one could express
How much You deserve
Though I’m weak and poor
All I have is Yours
Every single breath

I’ll bring You more than just a song
For a song in itself
Is not what You have required
You search much deeper within
Through the way things appear
You’re looking into my heart

I’m coming back to the heart of worship
And it’s all about You
All about You, Jesus
I’m sorry Lord for the thing I’ve made it
When it’s all about You
It’s all about You Jesus

Its all about you
Jesus
