There’s a cross on the side of the road
Where a mother lost a son, how could she know
That the morning he left would be their last time?
She’d trade with him for a little more time
So she could say she loved him one last time
And hold him tight, but with life we never know
When we’re coming up to the end of the road
So what do we do then
With tragedy around the bend?

We live, we love
We forgive and never give up
‘Cause the days we are given are gifts from above
And today we remember to live and to love

There’s a man who waits for the tests
To see if the cancer has spread yet
And now he asks so why did I wait to live
‘Til it was time to die?
If I could have the time back how I’d live
Life is such a gift
So how does the story end?
Well, this is your story and it all depends
So don’t let it become true
Get out to do what we were meant to do

Waking up to another dark morning
People are mourning
The weather in life outside is storming
But what would it take for the clouds to break?
For us to realize each day is a gift somehow someway
So get our heads up out of the darkness
And spark this new mindset
And start to live life ‘cuz it ain’t gone yet
And tragedy is a reminder to take off the blinders and wake up
And live the life we’re supposed to take up
Moving forward with all our heads up
‘Cause life is worth living

O Lord, my God, when I in awesome wonder
Consider all the worlds Thy hands have made
I see the stars, I hear the rolling thunder
Thy pow’r thru-out the universe displayed

Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee
How great Thou art, how great Thou art
Then sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee
How great Thou art, how great Thou art

And when I think that God, His Son not sparing
Sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in
That on the cross, my burden gladly bearing
He bled and died to take away my sin

(written by LaJuan)
Forgive them
For they know not what they do
Father forgive them
I beg unto you
forgive them
Matthew Mark and Luke and John
Tells the story of how life goes on
When he raised his bloody face
And said these words of amazing grace

Forgive them for they know not what they do
Father Forgive them I pray unto you
Forgive them for they know not what they do

Forgive them
They’re a child in your arms
Hold them
Cause the storm is coming on
Forgive them
For unto us this earth was born
A king to rise and be re-born
Though he wear a thorny crown
Death could never hold him down

Forgive them for they know not what they do
Father Forgive them I pray unto you
Forgive them for they know what they do

Amazing grace how sweet the sound
Now death cannot hold us down

Forgive them for they know not what they do
Father Forgive them I pray unto you
Forgive them for they know what they do

Forgive them for they know not what they do
Father forgive them
Forgive them for they know not what they do
Father forgive them – created at http://animoto.com

Faith
(written by LaJuan)
I have faith
I have wall breaking
Solid rock kind of everlasting
Faith
It’s never binding
But ever climbing up the mountain
Faith
It’s something you get when you’ve hit the floor
And you’re damaged like you’ve never been before
And something kind of happens that turns it around
And you pick yourself up off the ground
It’s Faith, Faith, Faith
I have faith
I have earth shaking
Mirical making, love driven
Faith
Muscle behind me
Power inside me, God given
Faith
It’s something that builds when you seek the lord
And lay your burdens at his door
cause with him you just can not help but win
So believe it and get back up again
Have Faith, Faith, Faith
Your cross is heavy and the mountain is high
Keep moving your gonna make that climb
Have Faith, Faith, Faith, Faith – created at http://animoto.com

Who are we
That You would be mindful of us?
What do You see
That’s worth looking our way?

We are free
In ways that we never should be
Sweet release
From the grip of these chains

Like hinges straining from the weight
My heart no longer can keep from singing

All that is within me cries
For You alone be glorified
Emmanuel
God with us

My heart sings a brand new song
The debt is paid these chains are gone
Emmanuel
God with us

Lord, You know
Our hearts don’t deserve Your glory
Still You show
A love we cannot afford

Such a tiny offering compared to Calvary
Nevertheless, we lay it at Your feet

Let no one caught in sin remain
Inside the lie of inward shame
We fix our eyes upon the cross
And run to Him, who showed great love
And bled for us
Freely You’ve bled for us

Christ is risen from the dead
Trampling over death by death
Come awake, come awake
Come and rise up from the grave
Christ is risen from the dead
We are one with Him again
Come awake, come awake
Come and rise up from the grave

Beneath the weight of all our sin
You bowed to none but heaven’s will
No scheme of hell, no scoffer’s crown
No burden great can hold You down
In strength, You reign
Forever let Your church proclaim

O death, where is your sting?
O hell, where is your victory?
O church, come stand in the light
The glory of God has defeated the night
Singing: O death, where is your sting?
O hell, where is your victory?
O church, come stand in the light
Our God is not dead
He’s alive, He’s alive!

This is my prayer in the desert
When all that’s within me feels dry
This is my prayer in my hunger and need
My God is the God who provides

And this is my prayer in the fire
In weakness or trial or pain
There is a faith proved of more worth than gold
So refine me Lord through the flame

I will bring praise
I will bring praise
No weapon formed against me shall remain

I will rejoice
I will declare
God is my victory and He is here

This is my prayer in the battle
When triumph is still on its way
I am a conqueror and co heir with Christ
So firm on His promise I’ll stand

All of my life
In every season
You are still God
I have a reason to sing
I have a reason to worship

This is my prayer in the harvest
When favor and providence flow
I know I’m filled to be emptied again
The seed I’ve received I will sow
