Lyrics

Take Me Away

Written By: Jacob Thomas

(verse 1)
I find myself
when I look for you
and I know
that no one else
can love me the way that you do.
But it's so hard ya every day
I fall down,
wander astray.

(chorus)
Father, I pray
take me away.
Everyday
I live for you.
I'm tired of pain.
Show me your ways.
Take me away,
away with you.
Take me away.

(verse 2)
Even when I
am in the eye of the storm
I know that I
can still rely
on the promise
of my Lord.
Through every low
and every high
You are there
never leave my side.
Always there,
you're loving me.
You're everything I need.

(chorus)

(bridge)
You may think that you're happy.
That you got it all,
but there's a God in heaven.
Can you hear him call?
He wants to give you joy,
a happiness that stays.
He is waiting
to take you away.

(chorus)

Rescue Me

Written By: Jacob Thomas

(Verse 1)
Will this cycle ever end
I'm my own worst enemy
this endless re-occurring trend
has left me empty
I'm wrong again
It's my fault
These mistakes keep bringing me down
Lord, take my life
It's time to come on home
Can't live this life alone

(chorus)
Here I am
Broken down once again
Can't tell up from down
Can you please pull me out
'Cause I need air to breathe
And I need rescuing
Can't tell up from down
Can you please pull me out
And rescue me

(verse2)
It doesn't matter what I do
My sins of yesterday
As I come crawling back to you
You're still faithful to say
"Son I missed you so
I'm so glad you're home
It hasn't been the same since you've been gone."
Lord, take my life
It's time to come on home
Can't live this life alone

(chorus)

(bridge)
What is this grace
so freely given but never deserved
You pour down your love
Even when my back is turned

(chorus)

Lord of All the Earth

Written By: Jacob Thomas

(Verse 1)
You’re my Savior Adonai
To you I lift my hands and cry
You are Lord of all the earth
You made the sun, you made the stars
Now you hold me in your arms
You are Lord of all the earth

(Chorus)
Amen, the Lord of all the earth He rose again (4x)

(Verse 2)
Through the day and through the night
You are always by my side
To you my God I give my life
When I’m down you take my hand
You lift me up so I can stand
To you my God I give my life

(Chorus)

(Bridge)
Not even the Grave could contain
The power of your awesome name
Not even the tree could restrain
Your never ending love for me

(Chorus)

Beautiful Lies

Written By: Jacob Thomas

(Verse 1)
See the children
Lost and Lonely
Why is Life unfair
Why is life unfair
On the streets
Tired and hungry
And nobody cares
Yeah nobody cares

(Chorus)
But what if we took off the disguise
Learned to see with our hearts instead of our eyes
We have become broken inside
Hiding behind these beautiful Lies

(Verse 2)
See the girl
She’s been crying
Because no one understands
Yeah no one understands
She’s had enough
She feels like dieing
How can this be God’s plan?
How can this be Gods Plan?

(Chorus)

(Bridge)
And all the pieces fall apart when
We’ve become to used to wandering in the dark
Lord make my eyes see what’s in front of me
Lord I want to see

(Chorus)

Breath of Grace

Written By: Jacob Thomas

(Verse1)
Do you feel like you’re invincible?
So powerful so strong
Do you feel you’re indestructible?
And nothing will go wrong

(Pre-Chorus)
There’s no promise that this world can keep
When you lay your head down to sleep

(Chorus)
Are you ready to meet your Maker?
Ready to see him face to face
For everyday is a blessing
Every breath a breath of grace
Breath of grace

(Verse 2)
Your castles can’t protect you
Nor your riches save the day
This world can be so tempting
But it all will fade away

(Pre-Chorus 2)
There’s no promise that this world can keep

(Chorus)
