Prepare the Way Prepare the way of the Lord Prepare the way of the Lord Prepare the way of the Lord Prepare the way of the Lord Fear leads us in to the darkness of thinking that nothing can change but God leads us out to a bright new acceptance of hope Conflict has taught us to question if people can ever be free but God breaks the shackles and brings us together in peace Weeping we mourn for our losses and sometimes we sink to despair but God lifts our spirits in grateful expressions of joy Hatred has kept our world broken we act as if we weren't the same but God warms our hearts so we hold one another in love
2.
Love's Rule 03:33
Love’s Rule verse 1 Where no one walks alone, where hatred has no home where compassion leads the way, we long to see that day we want, systems to change we want, vision made clear we want, spirit to move we need Love’s rule verse 2 where there is enough for all, no doors no gates no walls where peace and justice reign, we long to see that day bridge love’s rule is at our doorstep love’s rule is how we get there it turns us upside down
3.
You Belong 03:53
You Belong Blue eyes, a perfect little baby at her first cry embarking on a new adventure so many things that you should know child you’ll never be alone You belong, enfolded in the loving arms of God You belong, claimed by grace to be God’s chosen child hear these words beloved one, I hope you know that you belong Sunday, your loved ones and the faithful gather and we pray, and promises that we make together a ribbon weaves between us all a story that we will tell as you grow old Each day as you become who God created each way you navigate the peaks and valleys the world will try to take control You’ll claim God’s promise on your own
4.
Holy Fire 03:54
Holy Fire Fire burn, blaze a path that I can see Fire burn, spark our passion fearlessly Fire burn ignite a flame the world can see Holy Fire, burn in me, God's desire, set us free verse 1 we long to follow with our hearts and our minds but only the Spirit makes us disciples We seek to be loved and led in your way We feel your presence in each part of our lives now we want to catch fire more fully inspired the heat of your spirit will burst into flames verse 2 From the top of the mountain to the valleys below the torch that we carry is ever more heavy the glow of your light flickers and dims We respond to your call as we're fueled by your fire what can contain us your love to sustain us spirit spread your fire wild like the wind

Drive 03:39
Drive Driving down the road is an easy thing to do just jump in turn it on and let it go It gets a little harder when a fork comes in the road to the left or to the right how do I know Many road are detours and others are dead ends get the map out of the glovebox once again God is always with you, no matter where you go God is always with you, no matter where you go Sometimes when I'm driving like Sunday afternoon Don't mind seeing where the Spirit blows Other times its five o'clock in a traffic jam longing for that country peace again when I need direction I look to God again and it doesn't really matter where I am Searching for a home you make my destination known The road from here to there is dangerous and I am scared I want to run and hide God will be my guide
7.
Trapped in a Box All my life people tried to box me in Making rules instead of changing lives The more I learn about the simple love of God The more I learned to open up my eyes I’m living large now-opened my life I’m living large now-time to realize I’m living large now-no need to run and hide I’m living large now. When I looked upon myself, I felt real small Blaming others for what was wrong with me Then I realized that it was, time to grow up I had to take responsibility Are you feeling trapped in a box? I’m feeling trapped in a box Gotta Get out, Gotta get out!
8.
God's A Surprise Chorus God's a surprise Don't close your eyes You never know the place or time That God can change your life verse 1 Sometimes its easy to ignore them The signs and wonders all around If we're in tune to the world around us Miracles abound verse 2 God calls us to be ever watchful For 'kin'dom signs breaking through Be prepared its just around the corner God's surprising truth
9.
The Body of Christ The gardener bends down, his hands till the earth He sees its rich color and knows what its worth The grain that he grows will someday become bread And he knows what his minister means when she says (Chorus) We are the body of Christ, forgiven so we can be whole We, we are given this life, called forth and sent to the world The vine tender toils a long day in the sun His joy is in sharing a meal when he’s done He sits at a table, with his family and friends They join hands together with a prayer he begins. The faithful have come, the table is set a meals been prepared, the elements blessed The banquet is open my the mystery reveal that we find our wholeness in the grace that can heal

I See You 03:11
I See You (chorus) I see you, I see you, I see you, as a child of God I see you, I see you, I see you, I see you the way that God sees you Verse 1 I see you through the eyes of grace In this sacred place We have been embraced By the fullness of our God I see you through compassion's voice To see the pain we must make a choice To change the world not look away verse 2 I see you through united hands That can set things right the way God demands Heaven's justice here on earth I see you with a joy filled heart We will spread God's love this is where it starts Whole and sent out to the world
