Lyrics

May these words be used of God to bless and minister! :)

 

Free
I wanna serve You cause You’re worthy
of my all You’re deserving
don’t wanna hold onto anything else
this is my declaration
to the God of creation
I’m all in, I surrender
arms wide open, eyes on You
free me, free my spirit
that I might soar like an eagle lifted high, lifted high
free me, free my spirit
that I might live in the rhythm of Your heart, of Your heart
Holy Spirit here I am
to do the work of Your kingdom
choose this vessel to show Your glory
may all the pieces of this life
the elements harmonize
come together like a symphony
Master Conductor, Maestro God
free me, free my spirit
that I might soar like an eagle lifted high, lifted high
free me, free my spirit
that I might live in the rhythm of Your heart, of Your heart
how can I adequately be Your instrument
if my reservations dwell between us?
if You’re with me, I’ll settle for nothing less
than fearless, fearless…
free me, free my spirit
that I might soar like an eagle lifted high, lifted high
free me, free my spirit
that I might live in the rhythm of Your heart, of Your heart
free me, free my spirit
that I might soar like an eagle lifted high, lifted high
free me, free my spirit
that I might live in the rhythm of Your heart, of Your heart

How Much
we were wandering through the wilderness
after one miraculous exodus
following a cloud of fire
the seas parted and the manna fell from the sky
but who among us could explain why there was still disbelief?
God You proved Yourself again and again
to be our Anchor, our Provider, and Defense
how much will it take for we who are so hard-headed to surrender?
to surrender
how many times will we need to see Your faithfulness
before we are faithful?
before we are faithful to You our God
today we still pray for our desires and needs
some with desperation and panicked plea
to the One who’s the same yesterday, today and forever
and now and then our faith waivers
but Lord full of mercy, You pour out Your favor,
why do we doubt You?
God You proved Yourself again and again
to be our Savior, our Sustainer, and our Friend
how much will it take for we who are so hard-headed to surrender?
to surrender
how many times will we need to see Your faithfulness
before we are faithful?
before we are faithful
how much will it take for we who are so hard-headed to surrender?
to surrender
how many times will we need to see Your faithfulness
before we are faithful?
before we are faithful to You our God

Real With You
how is it that I can know that You see clear into my soul
yet still carry on in prayer as though you can’t?
help me remove this façade before You
it’s just me trying too hard
I want to be real with You,
whom have I to impress?
You’ve shown me my wretchedness
And met it with love and grace
so why do I complicate?

I see You mighty God, high & exalted
shining in majesty
so full in deity, yet desiring to be near me
what remarkable love can this be?
I want to be real with You,
heart, mind, body, and soul
I don’t fit another’s mold
Lord, all You expect of us
is us clothed in Jesus
what must it be like for You
to hear what’s coming out of my heart
and my mouth at the same time?
are they saying the same thing?
I want them to be one in the same

I want to be real with You,
whom have I to impress?
You’ve shown me my wretchedness
And met it with love and grace
so why do I complicate?
I want to be real with You
to make my life humbly Yours
to know & to love You more
that others might meet You Lord
and see You’re worth living for
I want to be real with You

Trust
when does the pain end?
when does the happiness begin?
for so long I’ve tried to do it on my own
but all I’ve reaped is what I’ve sown
sometimes it seems as though
no one was there for me
You wouldn’t know, You weren’t there
You didn’t ask, You didn’t care
but now I see, I bought the lie
what I thought was You deserting me
was me ignoring You
I thought I was strong enough
if it wouldn’t last too long
but those times the tears just won’t let up
You say ‘come and drink from My cup.’
‘I am your hiding place, I’m the One you can run to
cause I have lived the pain you are going through.’
now I see, with childlike faith I believe
I’m staring down this mountain saying move
I trust in You, I put my trust in You
I trust in You, I put my trust in You
I trust in You, I put my trust in You
I trust in You, I put my trust in You

God Day
it’s early in the morning, the house is quiet
but I’ve set aside this time for You
I bow before the throne of a noble King
and in this place my heart begins to sing
it’s gonna be a God Day, God Day
filled with His grace, His grace
and sweet new mercies
may my thoughts obey Jesus
to walk in His way, by His Spirit
with each breath that I take
it’s feelin’ like a God Day
a prayer rises up from within my soul
delight comes from above in our sweet communion
I sink deep into Your word and there I find
all the hope I need to calm this restless mind of mine
it’s gonna be a God Day, God Day
filled with His grace, His grace
and sweet new mercies
may my thoughts obey Jesus
to walk in His way, by His Spirit
with each breath that I take
And You wash over me
and I’m reminded that in You I am clean
You are my strength to face this day
this God Day, God Day
filled with Your grace, Your grace
and sweet new mercies
may my thoughts obey Jesus
to walk in Your way, by Your Spirit
with each breath that I take
it’s feelin’ like a God Day

God Speak
here, now, Your presence fills these very walls
how could we seek after anything else?
God speak, may we listen with humble hearts
God move, let Your power be great among us
God please, arrest us with Your purpose
what have You to say, Lord?
we wait
God of peace, God of mercy, You reign
God of the ages, You are strong in our weakest state
God speak, may we listen with humble hearts
God move, let Your power be great among us
God please, arrest us with Your purpose
what have You to say, Lord?
we wait
Spirit swell here, Spirit swell this place
Spirit swell here, Spirit swell this place
God speak, may we listen with humble hearts
God move, let Your power be great among us
God please, arrest us with Your purpose
what have You to say, Lord?
we wait

You Find Me
please note the exit signs for those who wish to run
no point in cowering no hiding from the Son
intentions to live Your Word daily go wrong
there, You, sweet Spirit of God with me, suffer long
the further I go the more You amaze
where can I find You?
I open up Your book and there You are
where do I go to?
I bow my knees in prayer and there You are
and how do I reach You when I’ve managed to distance myself so well?
when I cannot see
when I miss You, You find me
excuse the messy piles that occupy my head
they clear away surely as from Your word I’m fed
cluttered with dangerous thoughts needing to be tamed
placed humbly at Your feet
submitted in Jesus’ name
the further I go the more You amaze
where can I find You?
I open up Your book and there You are
where do I go to?
I bow my knees in prayer and there You are
and how do I reach You when I’ve managed to distance myself so well?
when I cannot see
when I miss You, You find
where can I find You?
and where do I go to?
and how do I reach You when I’ve managed to distance myself so well?
when I cannot see
when I miss You, You find me

Until You Take Me Away
Lord, I just want to praise Your name
Lord, I will never be the same
Lord, all of my battles You fight
You turn my darkness into light
Livin’ in Your word
as Your will for me unfolds
where my eyes are fixed on You
and my all is Yours to mold
lay my burdens at Your feet
oh Lord
Jesus, You’re the crowned and mighty king
Jesus, You’re the reason that I sing
I’ll walk this earth in love
until You take me away
Spirit, quiet me to hear Your voice
empower me, influence my every choice
Livin’ in Your word
as Your will for me unfolds
where my eyes are fixed on You
and my all is Yours to mold
lay my burdens at Your feet
oh Lord
Jesus, You’re the crowned and mighty king
Jesus, You’re the reason that I sing
I’ll walk this earth in love
until You take me away
Jesus, You’re the crowned and mighty king
Jesus, You’re the reason that I sing
I’ll walk this earth in love
until You take me away

The War

in the dark alleys of insecurity he’s lurking waiting to pounce
he’s hiding around the corner of uncertainty and doubt
so don’t linger in self-pity or entertain such thoughts
worries, cares and anxieties are sure to get you caught
hard as I try, I can’t do it on my own
these battles I fight are not against flesh and bone
the father of lies wants my soul
but he’s not the only one
now God consumed a people who denied Him
upon the heads of His enemies He opened up His wrath
he infiltrated the whole world over with a flood
my God covered all my sins with His beloved Son’s blood
hard as I try, I can’t do it on my own
these battles I fight are not against flesh and bone
Your Spirit is in me, I’m not alone
the war’s already been won
hard as I try, I can’t do it on my own
these battles I fight are not against flesh and bone
the father of lies wants my soul
but he’s not the only one
hard as I try, I can’t do it on my own
these battles I fight are not against flesh and bone
Your Spirit is in me, I’m not alone
the war’s already been won

You
Lord, all powerful God
I wish to serve You all the days of my life
Lord, all merciful King
I revel in You, in silence, in awe
it’s all about You
it’s all about You
it’s all about You
it’s all about You
Father, that I can call You Father
that I am Your child, that You care for me
Jesus, that You suffered
that You came from and returned to Your throne
Spirit, Your name is Helper
Comforter, Uniter
Spirit, come with power
consume us with fire
fill us, use us, mold us
it’s all about You
it’s all about You
it’s all about You
it’s all about You
it’s all about You
it’s all about You
it’s all about You
it’s all about You

  1. Jen I am SO EXCITED to use the song FREE this weekend! Truly I PRAY your words will be the song of commitment and surrender for so many hearts this weekend! We will be missing you and know you will be with us in our hearts! Love!

    • YAY! I’d love to catch up with you sometime, Jan! I’ve always wished our paths had crossed sooner at FBBC, before God led you out of the country and me out of the state! :) Nevertheless, it’s such a blessing to know you and I’m looking so forward to getting my hands on the recordings of your messages! Was praying for you all, and hope/know that God moved in sweet ways! Apologies for this late reply…I didn’t get a notification of your comment for some reason. Anyway…Much love and hugs and prayers to you and your awesome family, sister!
