Lyrics
  • Hands gettin’ dirty – you’re rollin’ up your sleeves
  • Ain’t no one lookin’ pretty while bundlin’ up the sheaves
  • You’re acquainted with the mud if you’ve ever known the yield
  • You’ve shed your ego and some blood out there in the field
 
  • You’re in the field – like a farmer at harvest
  • In the field – life is hard, harder, hardest
  • Ain’t no one reaping blessing ‘fore the sowin’ and the threshin’
  • Tell me, how are things progressin’ in the field?
 
  • To cultivate the culture – you’ve got to learn its creeds
  • Don’t swoop in like a vulture – come walk among the weeds
  • You can leave a mound of torment, or an imprint where you’ve kneeled
  • It’s more than “time spent” or “well meant” out here in the field
 
  • There are acres of thick clay, so, no time to fool around
  • Send the fakers far away – give the workers the good ground

Lyrics
  • Look at where you are standing
  • This is the place where seen and unseen are ordained to reconcile
  • This dirt is sacred
  • Right here, God spelled love in the dust with His fingertip
  • Remove your sandals in the presence of His signature
  • Look at where you are standing
  • Preceded by the silence between Testaments
  • Interrupted by fists slamming against cold altars, waiting
  • And what word cannot express when
  • The architect of existence crawls about on infant legs
  • Look at where you are standing
  • This is the place where logic and paradox embrace
  • Where Lord and suffering merge
  • Right here He determined to be broken
  • Grace costs so much to be given so freely and yet somehow we are considered worth the expense
  • Look at where you are standing
  • Right here at the place where He determined to be broken
 
  • It’s straight and narrow; those who find it are few
  • Which way will you go? Now you’ve been chosen to choose
  • The man of sorrows; He brought you straight to the cross – the cross
 
  • An invitation, made with arms open wide
  • Sweet soul salvation. The Son of God crucified
  • For my redemption; the price was paid at the cross – the cross
 
  • His body bruised and broken over me
  • He wore a crown of thorns to crown me with His glory
  • And without a word endured the wounds that healed me
  • Healed me at the cross
 
  • To those who perish, a sign of suffering and shame
  • And it may seem foolish that we find peace through His pain
  • Because we cherish the blood that flowed from the cross, the cross
 
  • His body bruised and broken over me
  • He wore a crown of thorns to crown me with His glory
  • And without a word endured the shame that saved me
  • Saved me at the cross
 
  • How deep the Father’s love that He would send His only son
  • Give His righteousness to us, how deep the Father’s love
  • How wide the arms of grace – on a cross He took my place
  • Throwing all my sins away – how wide the arms of grace
 
  • Saved me at the cross…
  • Suffered at the cross…
  • Yielded at the cross…
  • Saw me at the cross…
  • Knew me at the cross…
  • Loved me at the cross…

Lyrics
  • Your loving kindness leads me to repent
  • So I will turn – and I will learn
  • The ways of Your mercy toward me
 
  • My will as frail as flesh – My body not my own
  • So I have sought and I have known
  • The ways of Your mercy toward me
 
  • You’ve become despised – emptied of all righteousness
  • My sin upon Your shoulders
 
  • Your loving kindness – a burden I can bear
  • Your mercies, new – the morning comes
  • Your light is life – I feel the sun
  • This is Your mercy toward me
  • And I’ve seen Your mercy toward me
  • The ways of Your mercy toward me

Lyrics
  • My brothers, my duty is to God
  • My kin just filled me in on your spooky little plot
  • You hoped the Law would cancel me – gone without a trace
  • But substantially, you never had a case
 
  • My brothers, hope is standing trial
  • You see a vagrant’s fantasy and judge the rank and file
  • Your leader gave the order, but it’s you who slapped my face
  • It’s recorded now, you never had a case
 
  • Truth is on the side of the innocent – where’s your evidence?
 
  • You’ve sorted roughly forty folks who’d starve to see me dead
  • But soldiers got my back – so grab a snack; go break some bread
  • Your lawyers tried to warn you in advance of losing face
  • You never had a chance, ‘cause you never had a case
 
  • My brothers, my God is standing near
  • We Pharisees can’t see how come the Sadducees can’t hear
  • The crackling tongues of fire, the churning angels’ wings
  • If you have no hope of heaven, you haven’t got a thing
 
  • You’ve sorted roughly forty folks who’d starve until I’m dead
  • But soldiers got my back – go grab a snack, go choke down some bread
  • Lawyers tried to warn you to spare you from disgrace
  • You never had a prayer, ‘cause you never had a case
 
  • Truth is on the side of the innocent ‘n truth gon’ set you free…

Lyrics
  • If I had to say today what Jesus means to me
  • I’d open up a Psalm of David; the sorrows and the blessings
  • And borrow from the best things ever said
  • If I had to tell the world what Jesus did for me
  • I would find a choir to shout it full-out in the Spirit
  • So everyone could hear it
 
  • Singing Help me! People of God, c’mon help me
  • Let’s get together. Help me sing a new song to
  • The One we love – to the One we love!
 
  • When I need an answer for the hope that fills my heart
  • I join a cloud of witnesses who know what God has done
  • And celebrate the stories one by one
  • When I lose my strength beneath the burdens of this life
  • My brothers and my sisters share their shoulders and their friendship
  • And trials turn to worship
 
  • The One we love is gracious – the One we love is kind
  • Our love for Him is growing stronger all the time
  • The One we love has called us – called us, and He waits
  • For those who say they love Him to answer Him in faith!

Lyrics
  • I’ve been in over my head – I’ve been beaten, left for dead
  • Seen the truth drowned out by an angry crowd
  • No one heard a word I said
  • Suffered every indignity – doomed to die every day
  • Insult added to injury and that’s why
  • Sometimes, I get carried away
 
  • Is it fruitless, all this preachin’ to the ruthless and the heathens?
  • It’s a dangerous slog in the Synagogue – duckin’ and dodgin’ as I’m leavin’
  • Jews show love to Jerusalem – Greeks don’t know to whom they pray
  • I’ve been sharin’ the truth with them and that’s why
  • Sometimes, I get carried away
 
  • Lifted as in angel arms – rescued from harm’s way today
  • No need to flee or be alarmed, by God, I’m gettin’ carried away
