Lyrics:

I Will Be Ready Then
From the album Beautiful Dawn

 

Time…races on
The world spins so fast
All I see is past
When…will it end
Is there more to climb
Am I out of time
Help my lamp light
Keep burning bright and pure
I will remain true to the faith
That when He comes again
I will be ready then

 

Chorus:
I will be ready then
When He comes again
I will be ready then
When He comes again
I’ll be ready then
Take…one day at a time
Keep my heart set close
To what matters most

 

Give…every chance that I get
Set the world aside
Leave it all behind
Help my lamp light
Keep burning bright and pure
I will remain true to the faith
That when He comes again
I will be ready then

 

Chorus

 

Bright is the new day,
The sun is rising.
Help me to find someone in need,
Who’s crying for help, please send me…

 

Chorus

 

Beautiful Dawn
From the album Beautiful Dawn

 

Take me to the breaking of a beautiful dawn
Take me to the place where we come from
Take me to the end so I can see the start
There’s only one way to mend a broken heart

 

Take me to the place where I don’t feel so small
Take me where I don’t need to stand so tall
Take me to the edge so I can fall apart
There’s only one way to mend a broken heart

 

Take me where love isn’t up for sale
Take me where our hearts are not so frail
Take me where the fire still owns its spark
There’s only one way to mend a broken heart

 

Teach me how to see when I close my eyes
Teach me to forgive and to apologize
Show me how to love in the darkest dark
There’s only one way to mend a broken heart

 

Take me where the angels are close at hand
Take me where the ocean meets the sky and the land
Show me to the wisdom of the evening star
There’s only one way to mend a broken heart

 

Take me to the place where I feel no shame
Take me where the courage doesn’t need a name
Learning how to cry is the hardest part
There’s only one way to mend a broken heart
 
 
 
Hello Sunshine
From the album Beautiful Dawn

 

Hello sunshine it’s been too long
since I felt your warmth upon my face
And how much have I missed
‘Cause I’ve been focused on everything wrong
This road just felt so long
I forgot to lift my head to see you

 

Chorus
Oh my lovely shining for me
Let my eyes see all the beauty
Oh-oh

 

Hello sunshine since the moment
That I felt your beautiful warmth
I knew that I’d do anything
To keep this feeling of you
My heart comes alive
Oh who could add a day to this life
By drowning every dark sky

 

Chorus

 

Fill my dark skies
Make me see the light
Life is fine so bring in the sunshine
Oh-oh

 

Whoa-oh let in the sunshine
Whoa-oh let in the sunshine
Whoa-oh let in the sunshine
Let in the sunshine
 
 
We All Need Saving
From the album Beautiful Dawn

 

Come on, come on
You have got to move on
This is not the you I know
This isn’t real
It’s just all you can feel
And that’s the way that feelings go
And whether or not it’s right or wrong you’ll do what you will do

 

Chorus:
When the cloud in the sky starts to pour
And your life is just a storm you’re braving
Don’t tell yourself you can’t lean on someone else
Cause we all need saving sometimes

 

Say what you will but the time that we fill
While we’re on the earth
Should not be alone
We were meant to be known
You make me what I’m worth
But I can’t keep you from yourself you’ll do what you will do

 

Chorus

 

I don’t know why it has to be this way and
I don’t know the cure
But please believe someone else has felt this before

 

Chorus
Come Thou Fount
From the album Beautiful Dawn

 

Come, Thou Fount of ev’ry 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 redeeming love

 

Here I raise my Ebenezer
Hither by Thy help I’m Come
And I Hope by Thy good pleasure
Safely to arrive at home
Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it
Prone to leave the God I Love
Here’s my heart, O take and seal it
Seal it for Thy courts above

 

Jesus sought me when a stranger
Wand’ring from the fold of God
He, to rescue me from danger
Interposed His precious blood
Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it
Prone to leave the God I Love
Here’s my heart, O take and seal it
Seal it for Thy courts above

 

O to grace how great a debtor
Daily I’m constrained to be!
Let Thy goodness, as a fetter
Bind my wand’ring heart to Thee
Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it
Prone to leave the God I Love
Here’s my heart, O take and seal it
Seal it for Thy courts above
 
 
I Belong
From the album Beautiful Dawn

 

Not angels, nor demons, no power on earth or heaven
Not distance, nor danger, no trouble now or ever
Nothing can take me from your great love
Forever this truth remains

 

Chorus
I belong, I belong to you
I belong, I belong to you

 

Not hardship, nor hunger, no pain or depth of sorrow
Not weakness, nor failure, no broken dream or promise
Nothing can take me from your great love
Forever this truth remains

 

Chorus

 

Forever and forever, I belong
Nothing can take me from your great love
Forever this truth remains

 

Chorus
 
 
Nearer, my God, to thee
Nearer to thee
E’en though it be a cross
That raiseth me
Still all my song shall be
Nearer, my God, to thee
Nearer, my God, to thee
Nearer to thee

 

Though like the wanderer
The sun gone down
Darkness be over me
My rest a stone
Yet in my dreams I’d be
Nearer, my God, to thee
Nearer, my God, to thee
Nearer to thee

 

There let the way appear
Steps unto heaven
All that thou sendest me
In mercy giv’n
Angels to beckon me
Nearer, my God, to thee
Nearer, my God, to thee
Nearer to thee
All I Need
From the album Beautiful Dawn

 

When the day is done
And there’s no one else around
While I’m lying here in bed
You’re in my heart, You’re in my head
You’re all I need, You’re all I need

 

There are a million voices
Calling out my name
But You’re the One I want to hear
So make the others disappear
You’re all I need, You’re all I need

 

Chorus
You are all I need when I’m surrounded
You are all I need if I’m by myself
You fill me when I’m empty
There is nothing else
You’re all I need

 

When the morning comes
And Your mercy is renewed
There’s a fire in my bones
I’m not afraid to go alone
You’re all I need, You’re all I need

 

The sun on my face
I hear You whisper loud
You’re still the God that opens seas
Every flower, even me
You’re all I need, You’re all I need

 

Chorus

 

I’m drawn to everything that You do
Nothing compares with You

 

Chorus
My Heavenly Father Loves Me
From the album Beautiful Dawn

 

Whenever I hear the song of a bird
Or look at the blue, blue sky
Whenever I feel the rain on my face
Or the wind as it rushes by

 

Whenever I touch a velvet rose
Or walk by a lilac tree
I’m glad that I live in this beautiful world
Heavenly Father created for me

 

He gave me my eyes that I might see
The color of butterfly wings
He gave me my ears that I might hear
The magical sound of things

 

He gave me my life, my mind, my heart
I thank him reverently
For all his creations of which I’m apart
Yes, I know Heavenly Father loves me

 

He gave my life, my mind, my heart
I thank him reverently
For all his creations of which I’m apart
Yes, I know Heavenly Father loves me
Echoes
From the album Beautiful Dawn

 

Long ago and faraway
You were held in another place
And you were whispered sweet words of peace
And you were wrapped in the Arms of Mercy
Soon you won’t remember those days
Soon you won’t recall His voice or His face
But baby, sometimes if you’re still…

 

Chorus:
You will hear echoes
Heavenly echoes
Reminding you of another time and place
Like waking from an old familiar dream
You will hear echoes

 

You may have feelings hard to understand
Like you’re a stranger in a foreign land
When your homesick spirit feels alone
Remember, remember this was not your first home

 

Chorus

 

There may be times it seems
Heaven never happened
But baby, there will be angels
Waiting to send you

 

Chorus

 

For All You’ve Done
From the album Beautiful Dawn

 

Oh cleanser of the mess I’ve made
Upon the hill our places trade
Stretched on a cross Your body crushed
By human hands You formed from dust

 

Chorus
How wonderful Your mercy is
How awesome are Your ways
I come, I come
To worship You
For all You’ve done

 

Oh cleanser of the mess I’ve made
Your boundless love for me portrayed
With patience for my learning curve
By holding back what I deserve

 

Chorus

 

Oh cleanser of the mess I’ve made
With everything at Your feet laid
I watch as all my cares erode
And from my soul these words explode

 

Chorus

Lyrics:

Go Climb That Mountain
(Jenny Phillips/Tyler Castleton)
Every time you cast your eyes on that mountain
It seems the peaks reach further than the skies
But that mountain was made for your feet
And there’s one who has always believed
In your journey … so

 

Go climb that mountain
Go climb that mountain
If you start with willing feet
You can conquer anything
Set your feet on that road and go
Go climb that mountain

 

Trust that God has sent you here with the power
To conquer things that seem beyond your reach
It’s not going to move on its own
But you don’t have to do it alone
He is with you … so

 

Chorus
Every Voice
(Jenny Phillips/Tyler Castleton)
Everybody clap your hands together
Everybody stand upon your feet
Everybody make your voices heard
There’s a secret we can’t keep

 

Everybody clap your hands together
Everybody stand upon your feet
Everybody make your voices heard
There’s a secret we can’t keep

 

As one voice we stand together
Across the world every light is seen
Sisters unite and share His joy
Shout together
Every voice

 

We are mothers and we’re daughters
We are sisters and we’re friends
We are children of a Father
Who created us like Him

 

We are living in the cities
We’re on the isles of the sea
We are spread across the nations
But we’re all in unity

 

As one voice we stand together
Across the light every light is seen
Sisters unite and share His joy
Shout together
Every voice

 

Free
(Jenny Phillips/Tyler Castleton)
Far beyond the burden
Of this overgrown path
There are clear and open fields
Of green, green grass
How long has it been
Since you ran in those fields of green
And like a child, let go
And felt your hair fly in the breeze
This is how God
Designed our lives to be

 

We’re free, we’re free
To live, to live
With joy, with life
With love for Him
So raise your hands
Up to the skies
We choose to let His light inside
We’re free

 

When your hands hang down
And your skies are dark
When the wonder and joy
Have left your heart
Go and find that place
Where the world is open wide
Where you look into the sky
And let your deepest dreams run wild
We were meant to feel
His goodness in this life

 

Chorus

 

The Robe
(Jenny Phillips/Tyler Castleton)

 

Faithful woman
Reached through the crowd
And her hands gently touched your robe
And you through your grace made her whole

 

Now my broken body
Is fading fast
And like her I’m searching through the crowds
Desperate to find you somehow

 

And I’m reaching for that robe
I know that you can make me whole
But if it’s not meant to be that way
If I can’t stay
Then just wrap me in that robe
And hold me when I go

 

If you call me
Home to you
Please help those who love me understand
We are still held together by your hands

 

I’m reaching for that robe
I know that you can make me whole
But maybe in a different way
If I can’t stay
Then just wrap me in that robe
And hold me when I go

 

Hold her when she goes
Hold her when she goes

 

Sailing Home to You
(Jenny Phillips)
I cast my eyes on this ocean
So far from home
I set my sails wide open
But I can’t see the end
Of the horizon

 

Oh, Captain
Lead me through this dark and misty night
Back to the harbor that is filled with endless light
Breath into these sails today
And bid me swiftly on our way
Oh, make this ocean blue
As I bring this ship
Home to you

 

This little ship
On a great big journey
I sail so far
And pray that you’ll be near me
Calm the storms I face
And lead me by my faith
Oh, Captain
Lead me through this dark and misty night
Back to the harbor that is filled with endless light
Breath into these sails today
And bid me swiftly on our way
Oh, make this ocean blue
As I bring this ship
Home to you

 

The Flute
(Jenny Phillips/Tyler Castleton)
This flute sits alone
Silent without you
Unused
Will you pick me up
Place your hands upon the keys
And just breathe
Just breathe

 

I remember the melody
You used to play in me
We used to sing in harmony
And nothing is more sweet
Than the music that you bring
Play your songs again in me

 

Holiness from your lips
Fills me with your hope
Every note
Give me voice to sing
Fill this fragile flute
With your truth
With your truth

 

I remember the melody
You used to play in me
We used to sing in harmony
And nothing is more sweet
Than the music that you bring
Play your songs again in me
Just breath in me
Play the keys
Breath in me
Play the keys
Let your melody flow in me

 

The Shepherd & His Road
(Jenny Phillips/James Stevens)
My eyes were set
On the journey ahead
Oceans to cross
And mountains to climb
When a quiet road caught my eye
Something bid me follow
So I set my feet upon that road

 

And it led me to still waters
And rolling hills of green
A Shepherd on a hillside
That was reaching out to me
And a prayer welled up inside my soul
Slow me down today
Help me not forget this place
So I can come to know
This Shepherd and His Road

 

You Make Us Wanna Sing
(Jenny Phillips)
We hear the rhythm of the rain
We feel the swelling of the waves
All things calling your name
And we cannot contain
Our praise today

 

You make us want to sing
(And dance and love and live)
You make us want to sing
(And hope and laugh and dream)
We hear your song in everything
And you just make us want to sing

 

We hear the rustling of the trees
We move with the waving wheat
All things under your name
And we cannot contain
Our praise today

 

You make us want to sing
(And dance and love and live)
You make us want to sing
(And hope and laugh and dream)
We hear your song in everything
And you just make us want to sing

 

You just make us want to sing
We just want to sing, hear us sing
We will spend our lives in praising you
Hear us sing
Hear us sing
Hears us sing

 

You make us want to sing
(And dance and love and live)
You make us want to sing
(And hope and laugh and dream)
We hear your song in everything
And you just make us want to sing

 

Repeat Chorus 3 more times
Light Giver
(Jenny Phillips)
Your finger lights the dawn
You pour your light upon
Every rock and every tree
Until we feel you in all things

 

Rays of heaven through the clouds
Lift our eyes up from the ground
It’s through your light we see
You’re a lamp unto our feet

 

Light giver
We thank you for your light
We feel you in our lives
Light giver
In the lightning and the stars
The flame inside our hearts
The fire’s blaze the sunset hue
The burning sun and silver moon
Light giver
All light testifies of you

 

A million torches in the sky
Watch over us each night
You shine upon the seas
Your light stretches endlessly
And through the power of your glow
You give all things the chance to grow
We live through you

 

Chorus

 

Mercy River
(Jenny Phillips)
There’s a place where water’s pure
Mercy river
With banks of green and silver trees
Mercy river

 

Oh all ye that are broken
This river’s always open to you
Bend low and drink it in
Let go and feel the water wash your skin
This river is a gift
To all who enter in

 

The water sings a song of peace
Mercy river
With healing in it’s harmony
Mercy river

 

Chorus

 

Instrumental Bridge

 

Chorus
Fly Away
(Jenny Phillips/James Stevens)

 

You dream
You hope to be so many things
But every star feels out of reach to you

 

You pray
To be something more today
Just hold on to a spark of faith
And believe

 

You have wings
Put there by God
And He holds dreams for you
Bigger than you thought
Maybe His plans are just more grand
Maybe He’s waiting for you to take His hand
And have the faith
To fly away

 

(fly away, fly away, fly high)

 

If you try
If you turn your head up to the sky
There’s no doubt that you will find
Your strength

 

Chorus

 

(fly away, fly away, fly high)
Go Climb That Mountain
(Jenny Phillips/Tyler Castleton)
Every time you cast your eyes on that mountain
It seems the peaks reach further than the skies
But that mountain was made for your feet
And there’s one who has always believed
In your journey … so

 

Go climb that mountain
Go climb that mountain
If you start with willing feet
You can conquer anything
Set your feet on that road and go
Go climb that mountain

 

Trust that God has sent you here with the power
To conquer things that seem beyond your reach
It’s not going to move on its own
But you don’t have to do it alone
He is with you … so

 

Chorus

 

Every Voice
(Jenny Phillips/Tyler Castleton)
Everybody clap your hands together
Everybody stand upon your feet
Everybody make your voices heard
There’s a secret we can’t keep

 

Everybody clap your hands together
Everybody stand upon your feet
Everybody make your voices heard
There’s a secret we can’t keep

 

As one voice we stand together
Across the world every light is seen
Sisters unite and share His joy
Shout together
Every voice

 

We are mothers and we’re daughters
We are sisters and we’re friends
We are children of a Father
Who created us like Him

 

We are living in the cities
We’re on the isles of the sea
We are spread across the nations
But we’re all in unity

 

As one voice we stand together
Across the light every light is seen
Sister unite and share His joy
Shout together
Every voice
