Album Lyrics

Thunder

Lowell Alexander, Phil Naish, Rich Mullins

You walked in when the prophets had grown tired

Of being so inspired but rarely being heard

Coming on to a world confused and scattered

The silence was shattered by the power of the Word

Chorus

It sounded like thunder when you cleared the temple

Sounded like thunder sometimes when you prayed

Incredible wonder when the veil was torn in glory

It sounded like thunder when the stone was rolled away

 Verse

You spoke truth, You sat among the people

They listened in amazement at all the things You said Like a storm that rose above the quiet

The sound of Your love was enough to raise the dead

Chorus

It sounded like thunder when you cleared the temple

Sounded like thunder sometimes when you prayed

Incredible wonder when the veil was torn in glory

It sounded like thunder when the stone was rolled away

Bridge

When I think about You giving and loving and crying

And suffering our pain

When I think about You living and dying and rising

My tears fall like rain

Chorus

It sounded like thunder when you cleared the temple

Sounded like thunder sometimes when you prayed

Incredible wonder when the veil was torn in glory

It sounded like thunder when the stone was rolled away

The Love Of Christ

Verse

Come you sinners wracked with shame
Haunted by your past
Bring your failures bring your sins
But leave behind your mask

Pre-Chorus

He loves you as you are
Not as you should be

Chorus 1

No depth no height
No weakness and no might
Can ever come between you
And the love of Christ
Bring your sickness bring your pain
Bring you reckless wasted life
Let the shadow self you hide
Be illuminated by His light

Chorus 2

No depth no height
No weakness and no might
Can ever come between you
And the love of Christ

Bridge

Do not be afraid for love casts out all fear
He would rather die than live without you
Come draw near
Come draw near

Whom Have I In Heaven But You (Psalm 73)

Verse 1
I had nearly fallen away. My feet had almost stumbled
The wicked seem to have no pain. Their hearts are never humbled
Their bodies are sound, their pockets are full. They scoff at the righteous ones
They say You don’t know. They say You can’t see But where else can I go?

Chorus 
Whom have I in heaven but You? There’s nothing on the earth I desire more.
My flesh may fail but You are the strength of my heart forever.
Whom have I in heaven but You? There’s nothing on the earth I desire more.
My flesh may fail but You are the strength of my heart forever.

Verse 2
I walked into the house of the Lord trying to understand
The bitterness in my soul had made me a foolish man
But You didn’t scorn. You held my hand, You led me home again.
You are my shelter and you are my guide, You hold me in Your right hand.

Chorus 
Whom have I in heaven but You? There’s nothing on the earth I desire more.
My flesh may fail but You are the strength of my heart forever.
Whom have I in heaven but You? There’s nothing on the earth I desire more.
My flesh may fail but You are the strength of my heart forever.

Bridge
Your nearness is my good. Your nearness in my good.
Truly good, You’re truly good.
Chorus
Whom have I in heaven but You?
There’s nothing on the earth I desire more.
My flesh may fail but You are the strength of my heart forever.
Whom have I in heaven but You? There’s nothing on the earth I desire more.
My flesh may fail but You are the strength of my heart forever.
Your nearness is my
Nearness is my
Nearness is my good.
Your nearness is my
Nearness is my
Nearness is my good.
 
Your nearness is my
Nearness is my
Nearness is my good.
 
Your nearness is my
Nearness is my
Nearness is my good.
 
Your nearness is my good.
Your nearness is my good.

Glory To God The Trinity (Trinity Hymn)

Verse 1

We come today in the name of the Father
Maker of Earth and the sky
Father of Abraham Isaac and Jacob
True living God most high
We come to echo the voice of creation
Praising the Lord of Hosts
We sing to the Father we sing to the Son
We sing to the Holy Ghost

Chorus

Glory to God the Trinity
In essence One in persons Three
Glory to God the mystery
Revealed in Christ our Lord

Verse 2

We come today in the grace of our Savior
Jesus the Father’s Son
The One fully human and fully Divine
Born of a Virgin’s Womb
He died as he lived with the weak and the poor
Proclaiming the mercy of God
The grave couldn’t hold Him who’s holding us now
He’s risen as the Lord over all

Verse 3

We come today in the power of the Spirit
A fire that cannot be contained
Breathing new life into all of creation
Chasing the darkness away
There is no wall that will hinder His coming
No sin that He can’t drive away
O God three in One The beginning and End
We give you our worship today

Love Our Enemies

Verse 1

God has made this declaration
Through His Son the Prince of Peace
If we will enter in His Kingdom
We must love our enemies

Verse 2

Lord deliver us from hatred
Prejudice and cruelty
Come remove discrimination
That the truth may set us free

Chorus 1

Lord and Maker of creation
Every life is dear to Thee
In the holy name of Jesus
Help us love our enemies

Verse 3

Jesus is our true example
Showing us the face of God
When He chose to die for sinners
Rather than to shed their blood

Verse 4

(So) Father show us how to love them
With Your mercy from above
For our enemies are brothers
We’ve forgotten how to love

Chorus 1

Lord and Maker of creation
Every life is dear to Thee
In the holy name of Jesus
Help us love our enemies

Verse 5

So we’ll fight them with affection
We will conquer them with grace
Until our enemies see Jesus
When they look into our face

Verse 6

In His time and for His pleasure
Pray we all will stand one day
Reconciled before the Father
When the old has passed away

Chorus 2

You have made us in Your image
You’ve redeemed us through Your Son
Let our swords be turned to plowshares
And our hearts be turned to love

TAG

Let our hearts be turned to love
Let our hearts be turned to love

Be My All

Verse 1

Be my strength
When I’m too burdened
Be my voice
When I can’t speak
Be my light
When night is my morning
Be my sight when I can’t see

Pre-Chorus

Be my food
When hunger overwhelms me
Be my mind
When my thoughts fail

Chorus

Be my arms
When I cannot reach
Be my song
When I cannot sing
Be my comfort
In my grief or pain
Be my all

Verse 2

Be my will
When I’m unwilling
Be the road
At my dead end
Be my watchman
In the darkness
When I’m friendless
Be my friend

Pre-Chorus

Be my freedom
When I’m locked in chains
Be the Voice
Speaking in my dreams

Bridge

Be my heart
Be my provider
You Be the potter
I’ll be the clay

The Lord Is Our Shepherd

Verse 1

Oh the joy we felt inside
When they told us in nine months
You would arrive
And we told your brother
You’re gonna have to share a room
And everybody started getting ready for you

Pre-Chorus

But when we found ourselves in a hospital room
Your heartbeat couldn’t be found
Something went wrong and now you were gone
What are we supposed to do now
Where do we go
Where else can we go

Chorus

If the Lord is our shepherd
Then He’s walking with us
Through the valley of the shadow of death
And though the long dark night is swallowing us
He will not give up what is His
He restores our soul

Verse 2

How do we say good-bye
When we never got to hold you
Or hear your little cry
How do we leave this hospital room
Get in our car and drive home without you

Pre-Chorus

I don’t know
There’s only one place to go

Bridge

We never met you but we love you
We never met you but we love you
Rest in the arms of Him who loves you
Lean on the everlasting arms
We never met you but we love you
We never met you but we love you
Rest in the arms of Him who loves you
Lean on the everlasting arms

Stay

Verse 1

Are there prayers you’ve neglected to pray
Words left unspoken that you need to say
Are there mountains too great to climb
Are you looking for answers you can’t seem to find

Verse 2

Are you crushed by the weight of your sin
Is it dragging you down and in defeat once again
Are there burdens just too great to bear
Are you lost and alone in the depths of despair

Chorus 1

Will you stay just a little bit longer
Will you pray ’til you’re sure
That peace has been found
Will you seek His face In this holy place
Will you be still and know Him now

Verse 3

We can stay here as long as it takes
Seeking His mercy receiving His grace
For He has not come condemn
But to rescue each soul who call upon him

Verse 4

Let’s pray ’til we know we’ve been heard
We can seek God’s forgiveness believing His word
We can praise Him for victory’s won
In the name of the Father The Spirit The Son

Chorus 2

We will stay just a little bit longer
We will pray ’til we’re sure
That peace has been found
We will seek His face in this holy place
We will you be still and know Him now

My Master Was So Very Poor

Verse

My Master was so very poor
A manger was His cradling place
So very rich my Master was
Kings came from far to gain His grace
Kings came from far to gain His grace

Chorus 1

My Master was so very poor
And with the poor He broke the bread
So very rich my Master was
That multitudes by Him were fed
Great multitudes by Him were fed

Chorus 2

My Master was so very poor
They nailed Him naked to a cross
So very rich my Master was
He gave His all and knew no loss
Amen

Ending

Great multitudes by Him were fed
Great multitudes by Him were fed
