Lyrics:

 “If I Only Had Today”
Hilary Weeks
It seems like I’ve watched a million sunsets
And stared at a thousand full moons
Sometimes it feels like I’ve been here forever
And sometimes it all feels brand new
 
I could never count the heartbeats
From the day I was born until now
But not a single one goes unnoticed
By Him who breathes life in me somehow
 
But if there were no more tomorrows
If I knew that I could not stay
I know how I’d spend every moment
If I only had today
 
I’d hold you and listen
And I’d let the dishes sit in the sink
I’d tell you I love you over and over
And for once I’d just let the phone ring
Then I’d remind you of forever
And how our love would never change
If I only had today
 I’d wake up before the sun did
And I’d watch as you quietly sleep
I’d pray for time to move slowly
Knowing the moment won’t keep 
 
All the gifts that Heaven has given
Every blessing that’s come my way
Wouldn’t mean anything without you
So if I only had today
 I’d hold you and listen
I’d memorize every detail of your face
I’d tell you I love you over and over
I wouldn’t let excuses get in the way
Then I’d remind you of forever
And how our love would never change
If I only had today
 
 There’s no time like the present
Life doesn’t come with any guarantees
The sun will set and time won’t wait
So while I have today
 
 I’ll hold you and listen
I’ll let the dishes sit in the sink
I’ll tell you I love you over and over
For once I’ll just let the phone ring
And I’ll remind you of forever
And how our love will never change
Because I have today
 
 
 
“Faultless”
Hilary Weeks
When the sun sets and another day is over
I think about the person I wanna be
When I hold up a mirror to my life
Sometimes I don’t find who I was hoping to see
 I made mistakes today and I’ll probably make mistakes tomorrow
I couldn’t save myself no matter how I beg or borrow
I’m gonna need His grace
 On that day
On the day of grace
Through the Sinless One
My sins will be washed away
And I’ll stand worthy
Only because He stands by me
With mercy
And love without end
He will lift me
So I’ll never fall again
Then He’ll present me
Faultless
Faultless before God
 If my sins were drops of water
And tried to hold them with my hands closed tight
Some would slip through right past my fingers
I couldn’t catch them all no matter how hard I tried
 
But there are hands that have my name forever written on them
The price was paid and not a single soul will be forgotten
As we receive His grace
 
On that day
On the day of grace
Through the Sinless One
My sins will be washed away
And I’ll stand worthy
Only because He stands by me
With mercy
And love without end
He will lift me
So I’ll never fall again
Then He’ll present me
Faultless
Faultless before God
 
 
“Just Let Me Cry”
Hilary Weeks
 
I believe that everything happens for a reason
We’re not just tossed by the wind or left in the hands of fate
But sometimes life sends a storm that’s unexpected
And we’re forced to face our deepest pain
 
When I feel the heartache begin to pull me under
I dig my heels in deep and I fight to keep my ground
Still at times the hurt inside grows stronger
And there’s nothing I can do but let it out
 
Just let me cry
I know it’s hard to see
But the pain I feel
Isn’t going away today
Just let me cry
Till every tear has fallen
Don’t ask when and don’t ask why
Just let me cry
 
When I agreed that God could put this heart inside me
I understood that there would be a chance that it would break
But I know He knows exactly how I’m feeling
And I know in time He’ll take the pain away
But for now
 
Just let me cry
I know it’s hard to see
But the pain I feel
Isn’t going away today
Just let me cry
Till every tear has fallen
Don’t ask when and don’t ask why
Just let me cry
 
I have felt joy the kind that makes my heart want to sing
And so my tears are not a surrender
I know I feel that way again
But for now
For this moment
 
Just let me cry
I know it’s hard to see
But the pain I feel
Isn’t going away today
Just let me cry
Till every tear has fallen
Don’t ask when and don’t ask why
Just let me cry
 
I believe that everything happens for a reason
 
“Tender Behind the Mercy”
Hilary Weeks
 
A candle sits in darkness
Until there burns a flame
And a river dry and barren
Must wait for the gift of rain
 
Like the river I have thirsted
He has filled my cup
Instead of just one tiny flame
He gives me the sun
 
He’s the tender behind the mercy
The unconditional in love
And when I need forgiveness
He’s the Redeeming in Son
More and more I see
He’s the tender behind the mercy
 
I’ve had moments in the spotlight
And days I’ve wished to hide
In sunshine or in the shadows
He is by my side
 
CHORUS Repeat
 
More than once I’ve added to the pain he bore in Gethsemane
Yet gentle as a morning breeze His love reaches out to me
 
CHORUS Repeat
 
 
Reaching  
(Carolyn Arends)
There’s a time I can recall
Four years old and three feet tall
Trying to touch the stars and the cookie jar
And both were out of reach
And later on in my high school
It seemed to me a little cruel
How the right words to say always seemed to stay
Just out of reach
Well I should not have thought it strange
That growing causes growing pains
‘Cause the more we learn the more we know
We don’t know anything
 
But still it seems a tragic fate
Living with this quiet ache
The constant strain for what remains
Just out of reach
 
We are reaching for the future
We are reaching for the past
And no matter what we have we reach for more
We are desperate to discover
What is just beyond our grasp
But maybe that’s what heaven is for
 
There are times I can’t forget
Dressed up in my Sunday best
Trying not to squirm and to maybe learn
A bit of what the teacher would teach
And later lying in the dark
I felt a stirring in my heart
And though I longed to see what could not be seen
I still believed
 
I guess I shouldn’t think it odd
Until we see the face of God
The yearning deep within us tells us
There’s more to come
 
So when we taste of the divine
It leaves us hungry every time
For one more taste of what awaits
When heaven’s gates are reached
 
Repeat chorus
 
I believe that’s what heaven is for
There’s a time I can recall
Four years old and three feet tall
Trying to touch the stars and the cookie jar
And both were out of reach
 
“He Loves Me”
Hilary Weeks
Don’t it seem sometimes like the world is falling
And you’re standing underneath
You’ll never get out from under it
Or at least that’s how it feels
 
With a load so heavy and the days so long
You can barely breathe
And the only thing that keeps you standing
Is getting on your knees
 
When I need that burden lifted
When my strength is gone
There is one thing
That keeps me holding on
 
Deeper than my heart can hide
Stronger than I feel inside
More than I realize
He loves me
Steady as the day goes by
Longer than the reach of time
Enough to give His life
He loves me
 
I have felt it in the darkest night
When He stayed with me till dawn
On the days when I’m too weak to walk
He carries me along
 
Above the noise and the clatter down deep in my soul
In the middle of my pain
He tells me I can make it
And He promises to stay
 
In a world where nothing’s certain
I can count on this
There is no love
No love truer than His
 
CHORUS
Repeat
 
“Now”
Hilary Weeks
 
I was blind
Walking in the dark
Until I saw your light
You opened my eyes and lit the path before me
Clearly
And now I see
 
A heart of stone
Guarded by pain
Until I found your love
You broke down the walls, rebuilt the trust inside me
Patiently
And now I feel
 
Abandoned and lost
Unsure of my worth
Until I felt your grace
On Calvary’s cross you gave your life to save me
Willingly
And now I know
 
“Take Me There”
Hilary Weeks
There is a place where every tear drop that falls is counted
And every piece of the heart that’s been broken is put back together
A place where healing begins
And the hurting ends
 
Take me there
I’m ready to go
Cause I can’t carry this by myself anymore
Wrap me up
Hold me tight in Mercy’s arms
Let your sweet, sweet peace
Pour over me
And heal my soul
On the wings of this prayer
Take me there
 
There is a place where the past doesn’t cast any shadows
Where love fills the corners of the heart and little by little
Dreams dare to be dreamed again
Only broken know the way there
Cause they’ve walked Redemptions road
 
CHORUS Repeat
 
I need your name
I need your grace
Oh to lead to that place
Please take me to the place
Where you can heal my heart
Where you can heal my soul
Where you can heal me
 
CHORUS Repeat
 
“It Would Never Be Enough”
Hilary Weeks, Tyler Castleton, Lowell Alexander
 
If pen and paper could script God’s glory
And speak of His wondrous love
Every chapter ever written would never be enough
 
If words and music could fill the Heavens
And sing of His grace from above
Every chorus ever offered would never be enough
 
If all of our praises for ever more
Were each grain of sand on ten thousand shores
Alleluia
Alleluia
I would never be enough
 
If all the ages were but an instant
To worship and lift Him up
Countless lifetimes of endless moments
Would never be enough
 
CHORUS Repeat
