Lyrics

Thirsty

Written By: Christa Ward

I hear the thunder, I see the clouds
I feel the rain, Uh it's coming down
And with a whisper, of Your name
You're here beside me, breaking every chain

And I wanna let You know that I love You so
And I need for You to see that I just can't be
Everything You want me to be
Cause I'm thirsty, Lord I need a drink

So let it rain, down
Let it rain, down
On me

I read You scriptures, I sing Your praise
And less than often, Yes I even pray
I do my duties, I wear the face
Tell everybody, Oh I'm winning the race

But I've been walking the line and I'm getting tired
And I'm guessing I'm not the only one, who's thirsty
Lord, we need a drink

So let it rain, down
Let it rain, down

Oh, You brought me so far but I slipped off the track
I said I would serve You and never look back
I feel like I'm falling but I can't pick up the slack
Cause I'm thirsty, Lord will You give me a drink

And I wanna let You know that I love You so
And I need for You to see that I just can't be
Everything You want me to be
Oh, cause I've been walking the line and I"m gettin tired
And I"m guessing I'm not the only one, no I'm not the only one
Who's thirsty, Lord will You give us a drink

And let it rain, down
Let it rain, down
Let it rain, down
Let it rain, down
On me

Just Like You

Written By: Megan Ward/Christa Ward

It's just 3 months until graduation
She's getting her cap and gown
Planning her big celebration
For how she's turned out, and
I start to cry, because I don't wanna let her go
Cause she's my baby girl, but she says I need you to know

That You mean, everything to me
And you've shown me, just what I can be
I can be strong, I can be tough
But when I think I've had enough
You are there for me and you wipe my tears away
I wanna be just like you

When I look into the mirror
And I don't like what I see
She sees me so much clearer
Than what I claim to be
She says I'm beautiful and wise
With a hear that's made of gold
She can see past my faults
And she says I need you to know

That you mean everything to me
And you've shown me, just what I can be
I can be strong, I can be tough
But when I think I've had enough, you are there for me
And you wipe my tears away, oh mama
I wanna be just like you

Even when you punish me I know it's for my own good
And everynight I close my eyes, I thank the Lord above because

You mean everything to me
And you've shown me just what I can be
I can be strong, I can be tough, but when I think I've had enough
You are there for me and you wipe my tears away, oh mama
I wanna be just like

Repeat

All Of Me

Written By: Christa Ward

Sitting on the front porch
Feeling the gentle breeze
Watching all the trees move
And the beauty of the leaves
A thousand words are floating around my cluttered mind
And I can't seem to find the right ones for the first line
So I stay, I stay

So I just stay real quiet for awhile
I let my thoughts take over and I smile
Only God can make colors so true
And the singing of the birds He made so blue
And it forces me to examine where I am
And I know I'm not even close to where I need to be

Chorus

So take all of me
Every part of my life
Take all of me
Cause something's just not right
Lord here I am, and I hope you see
That I'm struggleing to just be
So take all of me

Now I just want to reaffirm my faith
I'm asking that You shower me with grace
I know I don't deserve this even now
But Lord I need to do this
Will You show me how
Now I'm not asking for riches or for fame
Will You just remind me
That I can do all things in Your name

Repeat chorus 2x

Make A Change

Written By: Christa Ward

I've been sittin around wondering where I'm going, and what does this life seem to mean
I've been blessed with the love of a hard-working man, who's not ashamed to get on his knees
I've got 2 great girls who consume my world, that the Lord has trusted to me
I think I've done them right still it's in my mind, what will my legacy be
What will my legacy be

I gotta make a change
Gotta step up my faith
And do it with grace
I gotta let the world see
That I'm not afraid to say
You are the maker of me
Lord You're the maker of me
I gotta make a, change
I gotta make a change

I've got 40 long hours gotta work, work, work
Looking forward to the end of the week
I put the Lord on the shelf for 5 straight days
And I forget the reason I breath
Saturday flies by Sunday comes around
And it's time for me to get what I need
I need a clean pure heart a desire to serve
And a spirit that yearns to be free
A spirit that yearns to be free

I gotta make a change
Gotta step up my faith
And do it with grace
I gotta let the world see
That I'm not afraid to say
You are the maker of me
Lord You're the maker of me
I gotta make a, change
I gotta make a change

If you always do what you've always done
You'll always have, what you've always had
I wanna be an example for God's own Son
Gonna lay down my life
And give Him more of my time

I gotta make a change
Gotta step up my faith
And do it with grace
I gotta let the world see
That I'm not afraid to say
You are the maker of me
Lord You're the maker of me
I gotta make a change
I gotta make a change
I gotta make a change
I gotta make a change
I gotta make a change
I gotta make a change
