Lyrics
  • Early in the morning, when my world awakens to You
  • As the day is dawning, I can feel its promise rising too
  • Inside Your love is shining, even if the sky is stone gray
  • I begin my offering: a song of love all day
 
  • When my world is turning, and the sun is racin’ ‘cross the sky
  • As my hands are working, sometimes I forget to lift them high
  • And praise You for the blessings; for everything You give and take away
  • These should be my offering: a song of love all day
 
  • Sunrise to sunset, every day I see
  • Surely Your goodness and mercy follow me
  • Sunrise to sunset, every hour I know
  • Your loving kindness leads me as I go
 
  • Late into the evening, each day has its trouble and its peace
  • Meet me while I’m dreaming; I need to hear You singing over me
  • The world around is sleeping; nothing but the stars to sing Your praise
  • Echoes of my offering: a song of love all day

Lyrics
  • New ground – breaking new ground
  • New ground – through to new ground
 
  • Sometimes it feels like bangin’ your head against a wall
  • The things you do, making no difference at all
  • You keep tryin’, but time won’t ever fly for you; you need a sign
 
  • You know your purpose; know that your journey led you here
  • You keep your focus – others around you disappear
  • You’re still tryin’, but you wonder if you’re lyin’ to yourself; it takes time
 
  • New ground (there for the taking) – breaking new ground
  • New ground (the Spirit is moving) – through to new ground
 
  • Another step…everything earned; nothing given
  • Kingdom come one day on earth as in heaven
  • Bright hope shining for tomorrow – worth the temporary tears and sorrow
 
  • We’re breakin’ through – God’s tearing down the walls of our enemy
  • This is His victory
  • Our strength is renewed – we’re not backing down
  • Step into destiny – the Spirit is leading me (into new ground)
 
  • Break…..break…..break through, yeah! Break through!
  • You’re not alone in this world
  • Break…..break…..break through, yeah! Break through!
  • The battle belongs to the Lord

Lyrics
  • They crucified my Lord –He nevuh said a mumblin’ word
  • Not a word – not a word  
 
  • They nailed Him to a tree…
 
  •   They pierced Him in His side…
  • His mother stood and cried…
  • He hung His head and died…

Lyrics
  • Take the leaven from the bread – take the grapes from the wine
  • Take the blossom from the last living branch – pull the roots from the vine 
 
  • ‘Cause if you take Jesus from me, how could I live?
  • How could I move? Who would I be?
  • You may as well take back the breath from the dust if you take Jesus…
  • If you take Jesus from me.
 
  • Take the water from the well – take the rivers from the sea
  • Put a desert in their place – put a desperate thirst in me
 
  • Take the stars from the eastern sky – take the lamp that lights my way
  • ‘Cause surely I’m forever lost in the dark
  • without the One who makes the sunrise every day

Lyrics
  • If my message is self-serving, please don’t be deceived
  • It’s OK if you’re observing to debunk a lie believed
  • If I’ve half the truth at twice the price, call me into question
  • As long as if I’m proved of Christ, you might call me Christian
 
  • If my pulpit is my idol (both are made of wood)
  • If I look into my Bible just to find my livelihood
  • If I claim my own authority, call it vain ambition
  • But if Jesus has the heart of me, you should call me Christian
 
  • Call me Christian – call me Christian
  • I’m on a mission – so call me Christian
  • Call me Christian – call me Christian
  • Made my decision – so call me Christian
 
  • If I speak in tongues of angels, and tell of what’s to come
  • If I’m seeing all the angles and moving mountains from
  • Here to there while loving no one, call me a magician
  • But if Christ has my devotion, you should call me Christian
 
  • By definition – you can call me Christian

Lyrics
  • This little light of mine – I’m gonna let it shine
  • Let it shine – let it shine – let it shine
 
  • Shine, shine, shine – no matter how small the light
  • Shine, shine, shine – burning all through the night
  • Shine, shine, shine – I’m gonna let it shine
 
  • It’s no good to keep a candle under a bowl, under a bushel
  • All the people flyin’ blind – here I am with a light that I can shine
 
  • Everywhere I go, I know it’s time to let it shine
