Lyrics

The Only One

Written By: Christopher Cool (ASCAP)

copyright 2001

V1:
Father, I’m before you like so many times before
But this time I know I need you even more
The cup that is before me is a bitter one to drink
But what will happen to them if I don’t, I can’t bear to think

So Father, I’m before you down on my knees
Praying won’t you let this cup pass from me please
Yet not my will, but yours be done
‘Cause deep down in my heart, I know that I’m the only one

CHORUS 1:
The only one who can set them free
No one else can do it, no one but me
So I need the strength that is only yours to give
I’m going to the cross and I’ll die
So they can live

V2:
Father I’m before you, now my arms are stretched out wide
They nailed me to this cross, and here I’ll stay until I die
But father please forgive them, for they know not what they do
They don’t know they’re only killing me so I can bring them back to you

Father I’m before you, now my heartbeat’s getting slow
But if I don’t pay this price for them, death is all they’ll know
So I must taste it for them, be the lamb for their sins
And death will be defeated when you raise me up again

CHORUS 2:
Because I am the only one who can set them free
No one else can do it, no one but me
So I need the strength that is only yours to give
I’m hanging on this cross and I’ll die
So they can live

[SOLO]

REPEAT CHORUS 2 then TAG

I Don't Deserve

[INTRO]

V1:
I don’t know why you chose to die
On the rugged cross just to let my spirit fly
And I don’t see what you see in me
But I thank you Jesus for setting my wretched spirit free

CHORUS 1:
And I don’t deserve the love you give me
And I don’t deserve the way you deliver me
And I don’t deserve how you forgave me
And I don’t deserve the way you save me

V2:
Out on my own lost and alone
Then you saved me Jesus and made my heart your home
You calm my fears you dry my tears
Said you’d never leave me in a hundred million years

CHORUS 2:
And I don’t deserve the love you give me
And I don’t deserve the way you deliver me
And I don’t deserve how you forgave me
And I don’t deserve the way you save me
The way you save me, no, no,
No, I don’t deserve the way you save me

[SOLO]

CHORUS 3:
No I don’t deserve the love you give
No I don’t deserve for you to even let me live (my Jesus)
I don’t deserve the way you set me free
I don’t deserve the way you save me
The way you save me, no, no, no
No, I don’t deserve the way you save me

I Stand Amazed

I Stand Amazed
Copyright 2001 Christopher Cool (ASCAP)

[V1]
Living on the outskirts, I was living out of touch
Living life just to do my own thing
Thought I was a genius, but I never knew that much
Never even knew that we have a King

[V2]
Then one day the King himself came knockin’ on my door
Thanks be to God, I let him in
And it sure was a job to pick my jaw up off the floor
When the King of Kings said that he would be my friend

[CHORUS]
And I stand amazed by Jesus
And I stand forgiven for my sins
And I stand in awe of his mighty wonder
And when I come into his presence
I bow to him

[V3]
He took up residence inside my heart that day
Yeah, Jesus is alive and well in me
He’s helping me to live my life the Jesus way
No I ain’t the same old boy that I used to be

[REPEAT CHORUS]
