Particles

Take the broken pieces
And put them together
Fragments scattered abroad
It would take me forever

I don’t know where to start
It’s all fallen apart
All over the floor
I find particles of my heart

Particles, particles of my heart

I know You care
I can see Your hand in there
I know You care
I can see Your hand in there
I can see Your hand in there

Particles, particles of my heart

I cry into Your hands
You wipe away my tears
I give You my brokenness
You still all my fears
All my fears
All my fears


Holding On To Nothing

I will not exist in uncertainty
Constantly pleading for more evidence
With every touch I question further
Until the death of trust is imminent

How do I know You are here
When I can’t feel
When You hide Your face
When all is desolate

I will not give in
I will still trust You to sustain me
By Your grace I live
Holding on to nothing I can see

This grace surpasses intellect
Liberating my mind to trust and believe
I proceed without reassurance
A blind beginning to see

I know You are still here
When I can’t feel
When You hide Your face
When all is desperate

I will not give in
I will still trust You to sustain me
By Your grace I live
Holding on to nothing I can see
Holding on to nothing I can see

My world is shifting
My grip is slipping
All I knew had to collapse
For all things new to come to pass


Renewal

You who labor and are heavy laden
Come to the throne of grace and receive mercy
For the eyes of God
Move throughout the earth
To strengthen the hearts
Who are completely His

Sovereign Counselor, Upholder
I will not be disgraced
I set my face like flint 
I know I will not be put to shame
Sovereign Counselor, Upholder
I know I will not be disgraced
I set my face like flint
I know I will not be put to shame

Renewal Renewal


Subjected To Frustration

Groaning internally, screaming
Comforted by advancement of our understanding
The solution comes when we see we don’t have it
The solution comes when we see we don’t have it

Our movement in circles, dance of the despondent
A facade to deny reality oh what we will do to fool ourselves
It’s alright to hurt, it’s alright
It’s alright to hurt, it’s alright

Determine in your heart to acquire the hope that is unseen
This hope will transpire amidst your adversity

Insisting that others satisfy our longings
And shielding ourselves from the disappointment
Love doesn’t demand its own way when concerning another
Love doesn’t demand its own way when concerning another

Determine in your heart to acquire the hope that is unseen
This hope will transpire amidst your adversity

Our purpose is not self-protection
Perfect love casts out all fear of rejection
Freedom comes when we forgive

Hold your ground and face your fears… will fall away
Hold your ground and face your fears… will fall away


Upon Yourself

Only that I might know You
Sought me out while I rebelled  
How could there be mercy for me
Then for you to spare…me from hell

Taking it upon Yourself
No greater love
Taking it upon Yourself

I only asked You to touch me
But with Your hand came healing
To even hear You speak
Didn’t think it would make…me complete 

Taking it upon Yourself
No greater love
Taking it upon Yourself

A hand reaching down
Raise me up
From this hollow I’ve dug enough

No one else will do what You’ve done 
There will be no other one 
God You are great God You are good

There is no other God than You
Your faithfulness endures forever and ever


Bring This Petition To The Castle

Premonitions exceeding my soul’s reach
The expression that evades me
Bring this petition to the castle
Send reinforcements before we unravel

I combat the void to inhale
Grown so weary of waiting
Give motion to my profession
The window is closing

We call for You
We call upon Your name
Unleash war
The battle belongs to the LORD


Outpouring

Established beneath the sun
He set us as a diamond
The light that gave us life
Is the light that we’ve run from
Impressed by the darkness of night
This darkness we’ve become

Outpouring the blood of Jesus Outpouring his love for you

With nothing we confess we are the harlot
But out hope comes from the throne
Our sins unto him wearing the scarlet
He calls us his very own

Outpouring the blood of Jesus Outpouring his love for you

Lay waste to all indecision
His heart is broken for you
Retribution had found its provision 
When his body was broken for you

Outpouring the blood of Jesus Outpouring his love on you
Outpouring the blood of Jesus Outpouring his love on you


Deathless

Established beneath the sun
He set us as a diamond
The light that gave us life
Is the light that we’ve run from
Impressed by the darkness of night
This darkness we’ve become

Outpouring the blood of Jesus Outpouring his love for you

With nothing we confess we are the harlot
But out hope comes from the throne
Our sins unto him wearing the scarlet
He calls us his very own

Outpouring the blood of Jesus Outpouring his love for you

Lay waste to all indecision
His heart is broken for you
Retribution had found its provision 
When his body was broken for you

Outpouring the blood of Jesus Outpouring his love on you
Outpouring the blood of Jesus Outpouring his love on you


Take Heart

I won’t throw away my confidence
LORD grant me strength to persevere
We are not of those who turn away
But who have believed and are saved
Ask and you will receive
Leave behind all disbelief
Faith is the substance of things hoped for
The evidence unseen

My desire is for You, My heart is burning to know Your love

We count as blessed those who endure
In the face of suffering
Put no confidence in the flesh
His power perfected in weakness
I press on to take hold
Of that to which I have been called
Whatever was gained I now consider loss
For whose sake I have lost all
Love the LORD, all his faithful people! 
The LORD preserves those who are true to him
Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the LORD

My desire is for You, My heart is burning to know Your love
