Be With Me

I am here when you need a place to hide.
I am here where you've gone alone to cry.
I am here with you to watch the morning sunrise,
By your side, I'm by your side.

I am here while you're thinking of today,
Should you work in here, or go outside to play?
Why not ask me, I would love to help you know,
Where to go, Which way to go.

(Chorus)
Be with me.
I wanna rest your mind.
I wanna give you grace.
I wanna give you life.
I wanna help you
To be all that you can become.
I wanna see you smile.
I wanna hold you close, dear child.

I have thought of you before the world began,
Thought of you before I even made a man.
And you're perfect just according to my plan,
And you're precious, and I'm your friend.

Chorus x2



My Prayer

My life is what You've given to me.
My time is in Your hands.
My breath is borrowed from Your store,
My heart at Your command.
And nothing good in me,
Was ever done by me,
No, all that's good in me was Yours alone.

Hear my prayer, I lift Your name on high.
At Your feet my selfish heart and pride I lay.
Let me live each day to bring You praise.
All I have forever more is Yours to keep.
Please live in me!

(Repeat)



The Potter Song

She sat on a shelf in the work shop,
next to a hard lump of clay.
Her texture was rough grey and dirty,
and she seemed to be leaning away.
Directly across where her gaze fell,
stood a slender and beautiful vase,
The kind that she pictured to stand all alone,
on a glass-doored mahogany case.
Her gaze slowly moved down the show line,
so many details soft and fine,
'Til finally she settled her little stout mind,
for the pot with the rose on a vine.

(Chorus)
Time grew on and so did her mind,
As she thought of her beautiful find.
She forgot to remember the Potter not her
was the One who decided her kind.

One day two strong hands closed around her,
and held her up high in the light,
Then for the first time she remembered,
she saw the clay Potter's kind eyes.
Her chin held up high if she had one,
as He set her rough form on the wheel.
Then she sat the there spinning around and around,
while His skilled fingers shaped her by feel.
Suddenly she started to stiffen,
the Potter had made a mistake,
Her ugly hard form had begun to look like
the form of a beautiful vase.

(Chorus)

She made herself stiffer and stiffer,
His hands harder still had to press,
Until she fought back with all of her might
successfully making a mess.
The Potter spoke, but she could not hear,
as she fought for all that she held dear,
All the time the clay holding it's vasely shape
and her little hard heart lost in fear.
Somewhere in her long fight against Him,
She heard herself cry out for help.
Then looking around her the help that she found
brought shame on her small vasely heart.

And she knew... (Chorus)

Now she's a vase,
and she stands on the glass of a handsome mahogany shelf.
She's gracious and tall,
and she holds a red rose that was grown by her Master Himself.
And she thinks of the time when He shaped her,
And she knows that the there's nothing she'd rather,
Than to be in the hands of her Master,
What the Master wants her to become.



Far, Far Away

How deep, how deep does the ocean go?
How far away is the sun?
Could I count the grains of sand that mark the shore,
Or know when life will be done?
North has a pole, where does the east go?
And what happens at the end of time?
There are so many things that I just don't know,
But this one secret is mine.

I've been forgiven my sins.
Jesus has taken them

(Chorus)
Far, far away, so far away!
And no He'll never go back to them.
Yes He has taken them
Far, far away, so far away!
Yes He's forgiven my every sin, and made me new today!

Could I tell the clouds to drop down snow,
Or move away from the sun?
Could I row a boat out then walk back to shore?
Around the earth could I run?
Could I breath life down into the dust?
And could I make it into a man?
Take and make the rocks so they were soft to touch?
Make water into land?

There's so many things that I can't do.
It's a good thing I don't have to!
I'm so glad Jesus has rescued me.
And He took my sins

(Chorus x2)

He made me new today!
He made me new today!



When I Remember

When I remember,
It doesn't matter,
The things that bother me,
Well they don't bug me anymore.
And when I think of You,
And not what I do,
My thoughts don't capture me,
Like they faked me out before.
And when I look at You,
Or I see through You,
I see my life is in good hands.
I know I can give You all my plans.
The world is not scary.
Doesn't mean to hurt me.
This is where I wanna be,
When You are what I see.

When I forget You,
Loose you from my view,
Rank You as number two,
Put my hope in something new,
And when I walk away,
Go in my own way,
Right at the start I pay.
I fear what the world will say,
Hear them in a mean voice,
Got to make a choice.
But I don't know what to choose.
I feel like my whole life is to loose.
I'm scared of what I see,
starting to frustrate me.
Don't let myself get angry.
The dark is choking me.

Oooooooo ....

When I remember,
It doesn't matter,
The things that bother me,
Well they don't bug me anymore.
And when I think of You,
And not what I do,
My thoughts don't capture me,
Like they faked me out before.
And when I look at You,
Or I see through You,
I see my life is in good hands.
I know I can give You all my plans.
The world is not scary.
Doesn't mean to hurt me.
This is where I wanna be,
When You are what I see.



Heidi's Lullaby

Softly the moonlight plays,
From the window down to your face.
And the sky is filled above,
With a thousand night lights shining for you.
Time has come for everyone to sleep,
All but God who's awake to keep,
You and all His children safe.
He will always be awake and watching.

Baby, go to sleep.
Close your little eyes.
Rest your fluffy head,
While I sing you this good night song.
Dooo do do do...... Go to sleep.

Moms and Dads are still awake.
Livingroom lights are still ablaze.
They are waiting for a child,
To be sleeping soundly,
Dreaming sweetly.
Hush and hear Daddy's Taylor play,
And Mom's voice in it's sweet way.
They are sitting, singing, playing, talking,
Yawning, humming, and it's drumming.

Baby, go to sleep.
Close your little eyes.
Rest your fuzzy head,
While I sing you this good night song.
Dooo do do do...... Go to sleep.

Go to sleep.
Go to sleep.



Thank You

She's down in the mud.
His Hand reaches out,
He picks her back up.
She continues down,
To the water's edge.
But the river's too wide.
She stands and she waits,
'Til He's there by her side.
He lifts her across,
And when he sets her down,
She picks up her shoe,
And she runs to high ground,
Where she dances and sings,
With her face in the breeze.
He watches her back.

Not even a smile, not even a thank you,
You'd think that by now she could show gratitude.
He gave her His life, and what did she do?
She's happy to be alive, but she doesn't say thank you.

Out on the face,
His rope is stretched tight.
Every muscle is straining,
With all of his might.
There's a sickening scrape,
When his anchor comes out,
A thousand feet up.
He's starting to doubt,
If he'll be alive,
When he reaches the pass.
For all that he has,
He jumps and he grabs,
And his hands come to rest,
On a deep jagged edge.
He lets out a sigh.

But then does he smile? Does he say thank you?
You'd think that by now he could show gratitude.
I gave him his life, and what does he do?
He's happy to be alive, but he doesn't say thank you.

Sentenced to die,
For a criminal-led life,
Didn't put up a fight,
I knew wrong from right,
When the man I had wounded,
Picked up my cross.
They nailed it to Him,
And my sin was lost.
As His blood poured out red,
My record came clean.
This man was made dead,
So I could go free.
And my life's still not over,
Like I know it should be.
He never stopped giving to me!

So then do I smile? Do I say thank you?
You'd think that by now I could show gratitude.
He gave me His life, and what did I do?
Jesus, you made me alive, how can I thank You?

I'm happy to be alive, Jesus, Thank You!



Free

Trying to be someone else,
Changing the self inside of me,
Oh, so hard. I put out the light,
Got dirt on my white blouse.
Then it got on my cuff,
When I tried to wash it off,
But it turned into mud.
I'll put a jacket on
and go out in the sun,
With everyone else.
Why don't you take off your coat?
Looks like you're choking your throat.
And I say, No, I'm fine.

But then the sun beats down,
Makes my head start to pound,
Until my mind turns 'round.
I throw my jacket down and I know

I know the way it feels to be free, free in You,
Free to do what you would have me do,
Free to laugh cause I know what's true,
And free to smile 'cause You're smiling too.
I don't need to be fooled by the worldly wise,
Don't need to believe any selfish lies,
don't need to know where You lead,
I just need to be free.

Looking at the things that I see,
I start to believe,
That's what I'm supposed to be.
And I get all caught up in thinking,
I need to do what I'm not,
The track has gotta be stopped,
I need to think of myself,
I need to build up my wealth,
I gotta be my own boss,

Until my head starts to pound.
My mind is turning around,
Feels like I'm starting to drown,
My feet don't reach the ground and I know

I know I just need to be free, free in You,
Free to do what you would have me do,
Free to laugh cause I know what's true,
And free to smile 'cause You're smiling too.
I don't need to be fooled by the worldly wise,
Don't need to believe any selfish lies,
don't need to know where You lead,
I just need to be free.

Yeah 'cause,
Life's another chance.
Time's another day and night where I can,
Hide out in the dark or I can step into the light,
And hold my candle nice and high,
And love the sunshine when it's out,
When it might reflect the ugly dirt and grime that's on my heart.
Sometimes I'm tempted
Just to draw the drapes and shut out all the light,
Follow the bugs into the shadows,
Duck and flee into the night. But then I've
Got to weigh it all for what is wrong and what is right,
Because there's nothing I can hide when night turns,
Into morning light-.

I can't hide.

Chorus



Come Back

Big brown eyes,
Faded green coat,
Little tufts of hair,
He was sittin' in my chair.
Showed up yesterday,
Kind of commandeered the place.
Sort of touched my heart,
Just a little part,
Maybe at the start.
Now it's turnin' hard.

Who is he?
Did he come to stay?
Little boy you'll have to go home,
'Cause you're in my way.
Come another day.

By myself,
Sittin' at home,
First time in awhile,
That the little boy is gone.
Peace and quiet,
Are returning to the place,
But only at the cost,
Of the smile on my face.
Livin' in the haze,
Of another day,

Tears I cry,
As I realize,
Why did I push away,
What I should have held tight?

I know it wasn't right for me,
To send him home last night,
When I turned my head so not to see,
The tears fall from his eyes,
When I might have dried them.
I might have not cared so much,
And I might have loved him.
He might have been Jesus.

All alone,
I shut you out.
Please come back again,
As a little child,
Or anyone who,
Needs to come,
In out of the cold.
I'll put a candle in the window,
And I'll open up the door,
Now that you've shown me,
There's more to live for.

Come- back to me,
There's room in my heart.
I'm giving back,
What took it up at the start.

Come back to me,
There's room in my heart.
I'm giving back,
What took it up at the start.

Come back today.
Don't go away.
Come back to stay.
Come back today.



All My Days

You come with me over the mountains,
Or sailing into the sea.,
Not ever alone, You're beside me.
Your hands pick me up when I sink.
The darkest night can't even hide You.
If I tried to run where could I be?
And nothin' I do could surprise You.
You know every thought that I think.
You are good, only Your rest can bring me peace.
You are Love, it's You who my fears can all erase.

And with my thoughts I want to honor,
And with my hands I want to love,
With my lips I want to praise You all my days,
For all of my days.

You made everything I've ever known here.
There's nothing as great as You are.
I never could measure beside You,
Still You treasure the thoughts of my heart.
You knew every sin I'd committed,
In the open or not ever seen.
Still You counted me worthy to die for.
Your righteousness washes me clean.
You are good and all of my goodness comes from You.
You are Love. You're Faithfulness, Mercy, Forgiveness and Truth.

And with my thoughts I want to honor,
And with hands I want to love,
And with my lips I want to praise You all my days,
For all of my days.

You alone, You are God,
And all of creations bows to You.
You alone, You are Love,
And perfect and precious. You're priceless, and pure.

With my heart I want to know You.
And with my will I want to trust.
And with my life I want to live for you all my days,
For all of my days.
(With my thoughts I want to honor),
And with hands I want to love,
And with my lips I want to praise You all my days,
For all of my days.



For Me

Dusty road, are You tired of traveling?
So many people wanting You,
But not as a friend or brother,
It's what they can get when You're here.
And why would You die?
It doesn't seem right,
For so many people,
For people who'd take Your life.

Die, He didn't have to die,
Could've left me sittin' high and dry,
With the just dessert that I deserved.
I deserved and gave it all to Him,
The punishment for all my sin,
All my ugly sin. I can't begin,
Can't begin to tell you when or how,
How or when I'll find the words to give Him thanks,
To give Him thanks and praise,
To find the words of praise to adequately say,
Perfect Love, I give my life,
I owe my death,
I give my heart,
You gave Your rightousness,
Your life and death and love,
For Me.

Dusty road, weary feet, dirty travelers,
A baby asleep on the hay,
A girl and a boy who aren't married,
Why come to the earth in this way?
And what of Your throne,
The place You call home?
You traded for this,
For shame and a cross for us.

(chorus)



Frost

There'll be frost across the window.
Ugly clouds will hide the sky.
There'll be times you wished for comfort.
There'll be teardrops in your eye.
But flowers don't fade and die forever.
Seeds can bring them back to life.
And every record of the sun down,
It just can't resist to rise.
So keep your head up,
And don't look down.
When something stops you,
Don't turn around.

Because the sun will shine tomorrow, yeah.
And there'll be another day.
And your smile will feel so right.
It won't help but chase the clouds away.
Do do do do do do do...

(repeat)

There'll be frost across the window.
Ugly clouds will hide the sky.
There'll be times you wished for comfort.
There'll be sunshine in its time.



The Parable

See the field, dormant lying,
sleepy in the winter's weeds,
Rows unkempt, plow awaiting,
broken shards among the reeds.
See the man, foreign, noble,
King of Heaven in peasant garb,
In the field, pause to ponder,
gently lift a broken shard.

What was that, midst the rubble,
dull and tarnished, hard and cold?
And the stones, crusted, muddied,
who would think of jewels and gold?
See the shard gently lifted,
hollow place made in the ground.
Precious stones, hands caress them,
place beneath the slightest mound.

Son of man, heaven's agent,
seeks the landlord of the plot.
Worthless field, yet he owns it,
asks for all the man has got.
Prince of earth drives a bargain.
Well he knows his lord will pay.
Life for life, God buys a field.
In the grave His body lay.

See the dawn. Death is broken!
But three days had passed that way.
God returns to claim His purchase.
No one dares to say Him nay.
