Lyrics

TEST-IF-I

Written By: James Day & Darren Polite

INTRO
"This is just a test..."

VERSE 1
Today
Seems I can't make nothin' go my way
Can't lie
'N say it doesn't make me wanna cry

PRE CHORUS
But I know that this won't last forever
And there's somethin' for me so much better
Said my prayers, went to sleep
Got what I need to keep it together

CHORUS
It's just a TEST-IF-I trust
It's just a test of my strength
It's just a test of my love
It's just a test of my faith

FILL
I-I-I-I
I-I-I-I testify

VERSE 2
Can't see
If this road leads where I wanna be
My hope
Is hangin' by a thread
Somebody please throw me a rope

PRE 2
I can hold on a little bit longer
Cuz I know that He won't let me wander
I will do what it takes
And tomorrow I'll wake even stronger

CHORUS 2
A TEST-IF-I will believe
Yes even when my heart breaks
Will I hand over my needs
It's just a test of my faith

SHINE

Written By: James Day & Darren Polite

VERSE 1
Caught up in opinions
And the meaning of success
I keep losing grip
On what it means to do my best
But I know I can always
Count on you to light the way
And show me in this moment
I have all I need today to make me shine...

CHORUS 1
SHINE
Like the winner I was born to be
SHINE
With the gifts that you have given me
SHINE
That somethin' special only I can do
SHINE
All things are possible through you

VERSE 2
Put my best foot forward
And my trust in what you bring
When you hold my hand, Lord
I don’t worry bout a thing
I know that you only want
The very best for me
Whatever doesn't happen
Ain't as good as what will be
(You - make - me)

CHORUS 2
SHINE
Here and now I know my time has come
SHINE
Gonna share this light with everyone
SHINE
Lord you're lifting me to higher ground

SHINE
And I ain't never comin' down

BREAK
Shine, shine, shine
This light of mine
I'm gonna let it shine
Shine, shine, shine
This light of mine
No holdin' back this time

OUTRO
(You - make - me)
SHINE
Shine, shine, shine
This light of mine
SHINE
(You - make - me)
SHINE
Shine, shine, shine
This light of mine
SHINE


HE REVEALS

Written By: James Day & Darren Polite

VERSE 1
Too many different roads
So I've been standing still
Waiting for a signal
To be sure I know His will
I've been lost in ways before
I still don't understand
But everytime I have the faith
To trust it in His hands

CHORUS
He reveals
The only truth that leads me home
He reveals
That I am never on my own
He fills me with a peace & joy
That I cannot conceal
He lives in me
Yes that what He reveals

VERSE 2
I've watched the wishes fade
I thought were meant to be
Pinned my hopes on promises
This world can't guarantee
The best of man's intentions
Left me standing in the dark
But now I only follow
What He places in my heart

BRIDGE
He brings me strength
He lifts me up
He shows me sweet forgiveness
With all of His love
