Lyrics

Pure Heart

Written By: Carolann Rosenthal

Multitudes of sacrifice from lips that praise You

More than enough offerings- You see the emptiness I bring

You desire truth in me

CHORUS
And a pure, pure heart You want a pure, pure heart

Give me a pure, pure heart and renew a right spirit in me

You know all my defenses – my foolish pride

Cleanse me from my offences- I’ve nothing left to offer You

Except this brokenness inside

CHORUS
For a pure, pure heart – I want a pure, pure heart

Give me a pure, pure heart and renew a right spirit in me

(Instrumental)

CHORUS
A pure, pure heart – I want a pure, pure heart

Give me a pure, pure heart and renew a right spirit in me

Renew a right spirit in me

I’ve nothing left to offer You

Except this brokenness…

Our Father

Written By: Carolann Rosenthal

Loving, Just and Sovereign Father
All-Knowing beginning to end
All-Powerful, Shield and Deliverer
Why do we run from Your perfect plan

Our Father, our Father, our Father
Have mercy on us
Our Father, our Father, our Father
Have mercy on our sins

Jesus, Creator, Redeemer and Savior
The Way and the Truth and the Giver of Life
Bread of God and Living Water
Why do we run after worldly lies?

Chorus

Holy Spirit, Comforter, Counselor
Seal of Promised, Eternal Reward
Renew and fill us, empower us
Come and control us Holy Lord

Our Father Who art in heaven
Hallowed be Thy Name - Thy Name

He’s given me You

Written By: Carolann Rosenthal


Sometimes I look back on the path of my life
and how its changed
I’m amazed at wrong turns I’ve made
Yet what I have today
Only God could have known, I needed
One so patient and kind
He gave me someone to pick up the pieces
To mend this broken life

He’s given me you
He’s given me you
I kneel down and pray
Each day and I…
Thank God for giving me you

Now and then - I get a heavy heart
When nothin’s going right
And I’ll complain how bad it is
Then I realize if I had…
All of the material things in this world
To fill my every need
Not one could compare
To what you mean to me

Chorus

Come Thou Long Expected Jesus

Written By: Arrangement by Carolann Rosenthal

Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus
Music: Rowland H. Prichard 1830 / Words: Charles Wesley 1745
Arrangement by: Carolann Rosenthal © 2007

Come, Thou long expected Jesus,
Born to set Thy people free;
From our fears and sins release us
Let us find our rest in Thee,
Israel’s Strength and Consolation,
Hope of all the earth Thou art:
Dear Desire of every nation,
Joy of every longing heart.

Chorus
Come Lord Jesus Come
Come Lord Jesus Come

Born Thy people to deliver,
Born a child and yet a King,
Born to reign in us forever,
Now Thy gracious Kingdom bring.
By Thine own eternal Spirit,
Rule in all our hearts alone;
By Thine all sufficient merit,
Raise us to Thy glorious throne.

(Chorus) (2x)

Instrumental

Come, Thou long expected Jesus,
Born to set Thy people free;

The Gift

Written By: Carolann Rosenthal

Here is a gift that’s meant for sharing
A love that is given for you
Placed in your heart it will bring you the joy
Of life refreshing and new…

Chorus A promise from God to you…to be with Him
For life everlasting…forgiveness from sin
The peace of God above can only be won
By receiving the love through His only Son

Here is the love – a gift of a lifetime
To guide you and carry you through
His love is unfailing, through trials and troubles
If you ask, He’ll be there for you…

Chorus A promise from God to you…to be with Him
For life everlasting…forgiveness from sin
The peace of God above can only be won
By receiving the love through His only Son

Here is a gift that’s meant for sharing
A love that is given for you…
Love that is given for you

One Bright Light

Written By: Carolann Rosenthal


Two thousand years ago out in a field
The brightest star to wise men was revealed
It shone upon the earth to tell of Jesus birth
To lead them to a manger where they kneeled

Chorus
They could see one bright light shining in a cold dark world
Pointing to a Savior; one they’d been waiting for
They could see one bright light shining in a cold dark world
Pointing to a Savior; one bright light

The more I look around the more I see
There’s captives everywhere to be set free
God’s waiting patiently, while He makes His plea
Messages revealed through you and me

Chorus
We can be one bright light shining in a cold dark world
Pointing to a Savior; that’s what we’re put here for
We can be one bright light shining in a cold dark world
Pointing to a Savior; one bright light

Bridge
And when the light inside grows dim
We need His mercy to make it shine again

Chorus
He is our One Bright Light, shining in a cold dark world
He is our Savior; Lord we need a Savior
He is our One Bright Light shining in a cold dark world
He is our Savior; Lord we need a Savior
He is our One Bright Light shining in a cold dark world
He is our One Bright Light
