Chasen – Castaway

I feel destruction running hard through my veins
But I see redemption rushing my way
My victories are bittersweet, and now I can tell
The only place my plans have led me is right where I fell

I’m overboard, too far from shore
A castaway trying to make it home
I catch my breath to save myself but I can’t
In my sight You were just in time
I feel You now You’re by my side
And I know You gave me, a gift of a second chance

I had a dream of a life of my own
And I had a place that I thought was my home
But now I see I just can’t have it any other way
It’s all or nothing, do or die and I’m the price I pay because

A second chance I won’t forget
A second life I won’t regret
A second wind to brave this night
A second more to make it right

No sweeter name than the name of Jesus
No sweeter name have I ever known
No sweeter name than the name of Jesus

You are the life to my heart and my soul
You are the light to the darkness around me
You are the hope to the hopeless and broken
You are the only truth and the way

Jesus, Jesus
Jesus, Jesus

When every step is so hard to take
And all of my hope is fading away
When life is a mountain that I cannot climb
You carry me, Jesus carry me

You are strength in my weakness
And You are the refuge I seek
You are everything in my time of need
You are everything, You are everything I need

When every moment is more than I can take
And all of my strength is slipping away
When every breath gets harder to breathe
You carry me, Jesus carry me

I need You
You are everything I need
I love everything about You

Follow the star to a place unexpected
Would you believe after all we’ve projected,
A child in a manger?
Lowly and small, the weakest of all
Unlikeliest hero wrapped in His mother’s shawl
Just a child
Is this who we’ve waited for?

‘Cause how many kings stepped down from their thrones?
How many lords have abandoned their homes?
How many greats have become the least for me?
And how many gods have poured out their hearts
To romance a world that is torn all apart?
How many fathers gave up their sons for me?

Bringing our gifts for the newborn Savior
All that we have, whether costly or meek
Because we believe
Gold for His honor and frankincense for His pleasure
And myrrh for the cross He’ll suffer
Do you believe?
Is this who we’ve waited for?

Only one did that for me
Oh, all for me, ah
Ah, ah

All for me, all for you
All for me, all for you
All for me, all for you
All for me, all for you

How many kings stepped down from their thrones?
How many lords have abandoned their homes?
How many greats have become the least?
How many gods have poured out their hearts
To romance a world that is torn all apart?
How many fathers gave up their sons for me?

Only one did that for me
Oh, all for me, all for you

Luminate – Come Home

You’re best friends with the word regret
You’re afraid that your life’s been wasted
So why hope if it’s only gonna let you down
You don’t think people really change
That you’re a mess and you’ll always be the same
And you doubt if you’ll ever get it turned around

So (I know) you’ve been running, searching for something
But you’re looking in a place you don’t belong
It’s never too late, you can’t outrun grace
No, mercy doesn’t care what you’ve done
So come home (Oh, oh, oh, oh)
So come home (Oh, oh, oh, oh)

You can try to fix your broken empire
And put bricks on a cracked foundation
But you’d be building castles on the sand
There’s power in the blood of Jesus
Your Father’s screaming just come home
He’s reaching out His hands

From the shadows, from the wrong roads
From the darkness, from the unknown
To redemption, something beautiful
To a new love, to a new home

I’m sure he must have been surprised
At where this road had taken him
‘Cause never in a million lives
Would he have dreamed of Bethlehem
And standing at the manger
He saw with his own eyes
The message from the angel come to life
And Joseph said

Why me
I’m just a simple man of trade
Why Him
With all the rulers in the world
Why here
Inside this stable filled with hay
Why her
She’s just an ordinary girl
Now I’m not one to second guess
What angels have to say
But this is such a strange way
To save the world

To think of how it could have been
If Jesus had come as He deserved
There would have been no Bethlehem
No lowly shepherds at His birth
But Joseph knew the reason
Love had to reach so far
And as he held the Savior in his arms
He must have thought

Chasen – One in a Million

What am I waiting for
Standing still when I should be moving
In front of an open door
I forgot what I thought I was proving
Lay down these thoughts that I take up again and again

Oh, oh
I’m holding on now
Even though my world
Is upside down
Break the chains of my doubt
And set me free
‘Cause I know as I stand right here to you I’m not
Just one in a million

I don’t know what to do
At least that’s what I keep on saying
And never a moment too soon
You show me that there’s a way and
With each step I take, you will make the next one become clear

I know I don’t have to stay right here
‘Cause wherever I go I know you’re there
