In 2001, Chianti appeared on The Word Network where she was a featured artist on the Bobby Jones Gospel Show.

Lyrics

I AM

Written By: Chianti Carpenter and Joy Carpenter

Who put the sun in the sky
Who taught the birds how to fly
Ordained the moon and the stars, keeper of all things
The mountains, the valleys, the trees, I created them all
Um to show you that I’m God
I placed my hand over you
Predestined you to go through
The storm, the pain, and all of the afflictions
Triumph on
Kings and All you priest of God
Go on, inherit all the earth

Chorus
I Am the one you need
Just put your trust in me
I am the one you need
I am all that you need
I am the one you need
Just put your faith in Me
I am the one you need
I am all that you need

Inhale, Exhale, the air you breathe now that’s me
Who else can give you joy
It’s Me
Who else can give you peace
Not your money no no, not your family no no, not your man or your girlfriend
But I’m what you’re searching for
I am that and so much more
I placed my hand over you
Predestined you to go through
The storm, the pain, and all of the afflictions
Triumph on
Kings and All you priest of God
Go on, inherit all the earth

Repeat Chorus

Bridge
I am all you need; I am God the one that healeth thee
The air that you breathe
The one that gives you peace
I am all that you need

Your Mercy

Written By: Chianti Carpenter

You are the Lord of all
The Great I Am
The Master of the universe
You call the moon to shine
The rain to fall
And with one word you spoke all
And your mercy, yes your mercy endures forever and ever and ever

Chorus
For your mercy endures forever
Yes your mercry endures forever
repeat

Everyday I come to you
With outstretched arms
Giving you praise and glory for all you've done
There is no one who can come close to you
No one can ever love me like you do, you do

Repeat Chorus

For your mercy endures
For your mercy endures
