Lyrics

Hero

Written By: Jade Sholty

Gotham city is in trouble tonight
But I'm too old for Batman now
The Daily Planet makes stars of the bad guys
And even Superman can't slow that down

Wonder Woman got a full time job
Her kids watch all her rerun shows
I need a hero that is flesh and blood
And there's only one real hero that I know
Jesus, you are my hero

Chorus
You walk on water and You move the stars
Your X-ray vision sees straight to my heart
You've got might power and saving love
You're my hero, Jesus

Spiderman can scale a building at night
But he can't save a world in fear
Flash was fast, but you are faster than light
As you're drying each and every tear
Jesus, you are real and you are here

Chorus

Bridge
Our stores are filled with action heroes on the shelves
But there's only one real hero that can help

Chorus

The Healing Song (On My Knees)

Written By: Jade Sholty

Feeling sick again today
I’m too tired to fight the pain
I feel my confidence give way
Lord, I need your help today

Slowly I kneel down by my bed
And on Your lap I lay my head
I feel Your warmth upon my face
As I enter Your secret place

Chorus
When I’m on my knees, praying at Your feet
I feel Your healing light shine down on me
Down on my knees, is where You lift me
High above my fears into Your peace
(On my knees, I find Your peace)

I wait in Your presence now
I feel the power coming down
I feel Your love fill every part
As the joy returns to my heart

Chorus

Bridge
I won’t move until Your voice bids me to go
Your healing light fills every corner of my soul
On Your strength I will make it through this day
Because there’s just no other way, Lord I need You

Chorus

One Breath at a Time

Written By: Jade Sholty

Feels like I've lost too much, don't know how I will go on
My heart's hurting and I'm feeling crushed, and it seems all hope is gone

And I wonder, how will I make it through
And now Lord, I am asking You

Chorus
And You say,
Just one breath at a time
Put Your hand in mine
And everything will be alright
One breath at a time
One breath at a time

I know someday the pain will fade and I have to carry on
But a new day can feel like too much, when a minute feels so long

And now Lord, I am asking You
You've gotta help me, help me make it through

Chorus

Bridge
I breathe in and I breathe out
You help me breathe again, I'm gonna make it somehow

Chorus

Bring Me to Life

Written By: Jade Sholty

Dark and empty, I recognize this place
How did I get back inside this cave
I've been here before and I know you're the only door
Bring me to life

I can't move this rock I'm trapped here by my fear
Feels like my heart has all but disappeared
But I know Your name and I know I can leave this place
Bring me to life

Chorus
Roll back the stone Jesus, free my heart
Unwrap me from this shroud of doubt
Let your light shine in Jesus,
take me by the hand and lead me out
Bring me to life

Distracted by the world I lose sight of your love
And I call on You to raise me up
You know my name and I know there's more to this day
Bring me to life

Chorus

Bridge
There is no life like the life that is in you
My heart was dead, but now it beats with truth
What I thought was life was just a shallow dream
You bring real life to me
Bring me to life

Chorus

Deliver Me

Written By: Jade Sholty

Speeding through our days so fast that life can pass you by
Watching the world spin wildly and I've gotta wonder why
Chasing down endless paths while my faith sits on a shelf
Won't you help me slow down, won't you save me from myself

Chorus
Deliver Me, Oh Lord
Deliver Me
Deliver me, Oh Lord
Deliver Me, Deliver Me

Yearning for an elusive peace, that I just can't find
Will this endless chasing stop before I lose my mind
Feeling fear and loneliness in a world with so much noise
Help me to quiet down so I can hear Your voice

Chorus

Bridge
I know that you've conquered all before Me
I know that I've no reason to fear
I know that this world is just illusion
And I know there's a happy ending near

Chorus

Undying Love

Written By: Jade Sholty

I give up my crown and robes tonight
To be with you and bring some light
From a God who reigns over all
to a baby born in cold straw

My perfect hands will scar and they will bleed
And I will pound nails and plant the seed
And I wonder will you recognize me
As I walk with you, will you see

Chorus
My undying love, for you
I'll cross space and time to hold your hand and prove
My undying love, for you
I'll live with you to show you're not alone
And I'll die so I can bring you home
And I won't rest until you know
My undying love

You will see me cry and share your pain
And I will heal your hearts and show the way
To the life I've meant just for you
I'll do all I can to show you

Chorus

Bridge
And even as they pound in the nails
I will whisper your name to angels

Chorus

Cling to Your Heart

Written By: Jade Sholty

Cling to Your Heart

© Jade Sholty and God

The world can move so fast, you blink, it’s gone
I struggle to keep up, to just hold on
The more I cling to this world, the more it passes through like sand
I’m going to drop my load and free my hands

Chorus
I will cling to Your heart, I will live in your shelter
I will cling to Your heart, ‘cause Your love lasts forever and ever
Does it make You sad to see us running

As you hold out Your hand to a world that’s drowning
We hold so tightly to things, that will only make us sink
I’m going to trade in these weights for greater things

Chorus 2
I will cling to Your heart, I will live in Your shelter
I will cling to Your heart, because Your love lasts forever
And I’ll cling to Your heart, Lord, You are my treasure
And I’ll cling to Your ehart, because Your loves lasts forever and ever

Bridge

I will hold on to what is real
Get rid of all my cares and fears
I won’t be fooled by what the world shows me
Because Your heart is reality

Quiet Chorus
And I’ll cling to Your heart, I will live in Your shelter
I will cling to Your heart because Your love lasts forever

Full Band Comes in
I will cling to Your heart, Lord You are my treasure
I will cling to Your heart, because Your love lasts forever
And ever, And ever, And ever

My Father's Love

Written By: Jade Sholty

I watch you as you fall asleep
Precious child with my heartbeat
And I marvel at the love you bring out in me, in me

Loving Father now I see
How deep a Father's love can be
And I'm humbled at the way You love me

Chorus
There's nothing greater than my Father's love
Nothing shines as Brightly as His love
And I can feel your love for me In my heart with every beat
There's nothing greater than my Father's love

My little child, I pray you know
Our Father's love that blessed us so
He has breathed His life into our souls

And with every passing hour
His gentle love with awesome power
Let it rain down, like a great sunshower, sunshower

Interlude

Chorus
