We Come To You

We come to you
With Open hearts
We come to you

We come to you
With hands held High
We come to you
With songs of praise
Singing Glory to our God on High
O Lord of Hosts
We come to you

Singing Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah Lord we sing
Singing Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah Our Christ is king

Move In Me

Written By: Chris Warren

Move in me

Lord you know my troubles
Lord you know my cares
You know all about me
My triumphs and despairs
Lord, you breathed life to me
Breathe in me again
Rain down burning fire
Let it be me you send

Move in me, move in me
Mold me fill me
Move in me, Make me yours
Lord reveal to me
The plans for my life
In your ways
Move in me

Here I feel your presence
Right here in this place
On my knees I’m falling
By your very grace
Into my mind pour faith
In my heart sow love
In my soul plant blossoms
Water from above

The Call

Written By: Chris Warren

The Call

A still small voice
A rushing Wind
A word of comfort from a friend

A bush that burns
With holy fire
A lifting up when things were dire

A rainbow sky
A parted sea
A yearning for something to be

A crazy dream
An unheard song
A hand that pushes you along

Are you reaching for a hand to pull you free?
Are you searching for what you were made to be?
Are you struggling on the path you have chosen?
Don’t miss the call.

A brighter star
A stormy sky
A loud voice booming from on high

A guiding light
A silent plea
A missed opportunity

A cold blank wall
A closed in space
A friendly smiling face

A Savior born
For you and me
A light for all the world to see

Are you reaching for a hand to pull you free?
Are you searching for what you were made to be?
Are you struggling on the path you have chosen?
Don’t miss the call.

Like A Mother

Written By: Chris Warren

Like a Mother

Like a Mother's perfect love
For her children
She'll hold them when they're sick
Until they're well again

So the Lord loves you!
So the Lord loves you!

Like a Mother's endless love
For her children
She'll open up her arms
And always take them in

So the Lord loves you!
So the Lord loves you!

Like a Mother's gracious love
For her children
She pardons all their faults
And forgives their every sin

So the Lord loves you!
So the Lord loves you!

Like a Mother's perfect love
For her children
She'd sacrifice her life
If it meant they could live

So the Lord loves you!
So the Lord loves you!
