Lyrics

Be the Change

Written By: Jake Brothers

Be The Change (inspired by Mahatma Gandhi)

In this world I see lost the broken lives left in pain
Oh and I’ve seen a world that’s in need of some truth to set them free
Who will lead them to heaven

Chorus
Be the change, be the light
Show the world what love is like
Be the change, be the light
Show how love has touched my life
Be the change

We have a hope for something better, something more to life
We have a love, a life, a joy in sacrifice
If we open up our eyes
We don’t need to wait for heaven

Chorus
Be the change, be the light
Show the world what love is like
Be the change, be the light
Show how love has touched my life
Be the change

Bridge
Gonna be the change, do what’s right
Gonna be the salt and be the light
Gonna tell the world what You have done
And show the wonders of Your love
Gonna be Your hands, be Your feet
Embrace everyone I meet
Gonna be the change and testify
And bring them back to life
Be the change… Be the change…

Chorus
Be the change, be the light
Show the world what love is like
Be the change, be the light
Show how love has touched my life

Live it Out

Written By: Jake Brothers, Erin Brothers

Verse 1
Suppose a brother is without clothes
On the street, no home of his own
Who am I to think that’s just the life he chose
Say, “God bless.”
But leave him there alone

Pre-chorus
Faith without works is absurd
True Faith is a voice speaking louder than words

Chorus
Live it out!
Be who I’m meant to be
Live it out!
Reach a world in desperate need
Live it out!
Love is what they’re dying to see
No excuse the time is now
Live it out!

Verse 2
Back to the street,
A brother’s crying out for help
Any day, that man could be myself
I am called to meet him at his point of need
Fill him with the Life he’s never seen

Chorus
Live it out!
Be who I’m meant to be
Live it out!
Reach a world in desperate need
Live it out!
Love is what they’re dying to see
No excuse the time is now
Live it out!

Bridge (Breakdown)
Faith without works is absurd
Cause actions speak louder than words
Faith without works is absurd
True Faith is a voice speaking louder than words

Chorus
Live it out!
Be who I’m meant to be
Live it out!
Reach a world in desperate need
Live it out!
Love is what they’re dying to see
No excuse the time is now
Live it out!

Tag 1
No excuse the time is now (3x)
Live it out!

Behold the One

Written By: Jake Brothers, Erin Brothers, Brandon Bee

Verse 1
Forty stripes, within inches of His life
He won’t comply, crowds shout, “Crucify!”
Mocked and bruised, who is this King of the Jews?
Pouring out His life, our sacrifice

Pre-chorus
An invitation
For our salvation
He died and lives again

Chorus
Behold the One, the risen Son
Who wore a cross to show the World
Love has won
The chains are gone
New life has come
When He spoke the final words,
“It is done.”

Verse 2
For three days, Jesus body lay
Death had won, and hope was gone
‘Till the dawn, of the third day
The stone was rolled away!

Chorus
Behold the One, the risen Son
Who wore a cross to show the World
Love has won
The chains are gone
New life has come
When He spoke the final words,
“It is done.”

Bridge
Hallelujah, it is done
Hallelujah, love has won
Hallelujah, the chains are gone
New life has come

Tag 1
Behold the One, the risen Son
On the cross love was won

Chorus 2 (2x)
Behold the One, the risen Son
Who wore a cross to show the World
Love has won
The chains are gone
New life has come
When He spoke the final words,
“It is done.”

Tag 2
“It is done.” Love has won. Behold the One!

Wonder of You

Written By: Jake Brothers

Verse 1
Invisible God, our eyes can not bear to see
Yet creation reveals the beauty of Your majesty
Ageless One, You hold the hands of time
You were life before it began
Your existence will never end

Chorus
Creator God, the mystery of who You are
Words can’t explain, my mind can’t contain, yet You remain
The Faithful One when my world is falling apart
Your love sustains, You never change, I am amazed by…
The wonder of You,
The wonder of who You are…

Verse 2
Radiant God, Your light shines vast beyond all measure
From the highest of heights, to the depths below
Matchless One, no one created can compare
To the glory of Your Name, Your mystery and Your fame

Bridge
The wonder of You
The wonder of You
The wonder of You

Chorus
Creator God, the mystery of who You are
Words can’t explain, my mind can’t contain, yet You remain
The Faithful One when my world is falling apart
Your love sustains, You never change, I am amazed by…
Your love sustains, You never change, I am amazed by…
The wonder of You
The wonder of who You are…
