Lyrics

Deeper

Written By: Karen Naber

Deeper © By Karen Naber
Vs. 1:
There’s an aching in my heart that longs to know You more
There’s a whisper in the darkness that I can’t ignore
Take away the mask I wear to hide from the truth
As I sit here in the stillness, Lord, my heart cries out for You, for You

Chorus:
Draw me deeper, cleanse me from within
Wash away my pride and fill this emptiness
Lord, please take me to a place I cannot hide
Far from all that glitters in this superficial life
Draw me deeper (deeper, deeper…)
Vs. 2:
Consume me with Your love until my heart just melts
Let me look into Your eyes ‘til I see nothing else
Fill me with Your Spirit and a love that’s new
As I sit here in the stillness, Lord, my heart cries out for You, for You

Chorus:

Bridge:
I get so caught up in this life (all that glitters is not gold)
I need You, Lord
Help me walk by faith not sight (Let Your grace and mercy flow)
I need You, Lord (draw me deeper)
I need You, Lord (draw me deeper)
Draw me deeper, Lord

Carried Away

Written By: Karen Naber


Carried Away © By Karen Naber
Vs. 1:
She was just sixteen, when she ran away
They told her she’d never amount to anything, anyway
She sold her soul, with sweet eyes of blue
Pawning her innocence, was the only life she ever knew

Chorus:
Until one day she met a man (Jesus) who took her broken heart into His nail scarred hands
And when she gazed into His face (Jesus) she felt her past had been erased…
She just got carried away (she was just drowning in pain)
She just got carried away (drawn like a moth to a flame)
She just got carried away (carried away) by grace

Vs. 2:
She was just a child, when she bore her own
The daddy just walked away, left her all alone
She blamed herself, for every bruise
She thought of ending it all, with sleeping pills and a bottle of booze

Chorus:

Bridge:
So amazed by grace, caught off guard by grace
No longer bound by her chains, no longer burdened by shame
He washed away every stain…..with grace.

End:
Now she’s a child of the Holy One
She’s never looking back….the past is gone

Wonderfully Made

Written By: Karen Naber


Wonderfully Made © By Karen Naber
Vs. 1:
So many lies locked up deep inside
Feeling so worthless and confused
I see the tears that you cry (tears that you cry)
Because I’m there by your side
And I want to tell you the truth

Chorus:
You are precious in my sight
Without shame and pure as gold
You are blameless in My eyes, yes you are (yes you are)
You are wonderfully made (wonderfully made)
Spotless and white as snow, I know
You are wonderfully made

Vs. 2:
I see the cares and burdens you bear
Feeling like I don’t love you
So many fears, (so many fears) you’ve carried for years
But I want to tell you the truth

Chorus:

Bridge:
My thoughts toward you out number the sands
My love out measures the earth
I hold you close in the palm of My hands
Never forget what you’re worth…

Chorus:

End:
You are wonderfully made, (wonderfully made)
Spotless and white as snow, I know
You are wonderfully made (wonderfully made)
Yes, I know you are wonderfully made
Yes, I know you are wonderfully made (wonderfully made)
Yes, I know you are wonderfully made

Perfection

Written By: Karen Naber

Perfection © By Karen Naber
Vs. 1:
I color outside the lines, just can’t seem to get it right
No matter how hard I try, I must have failed a thousand times.
They picked me last as basketball, they said I wasn’t tall enough
I’ve cried so many tears, still don’t measure up after all these years.

Chorus:
And now You’re looking at me (and now You’re looking at me)
What could You possibly see? (What could You possibly see?)
And to my surprise, with love in Your eyes
God, You whisper to me:
You are perfection to Me (you are perfected through Me)
There are no flaws that I see (the Flawless One set you free)
Through My own Son, there are no flawed ones
You are perfection to Me

Vs. 2:
Joined the chorus at my school, made me look just like a fool
When it came my turn to sing, I’m the only one who sang off key.
My first boyfriend broke my heart, thought I was fat and not that smart
Robbed me of my self-esteem, then left me for a tall beauty queen.

Chorus:

BRIDGE:
I came to save the lost, died upon a rugged cross
So you could be set free, from the lies of the enemy
Who comes to bring you pain, fill your heart with guilt and shame
But it’s been washed away, just look at Me and believe….
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
End:
You are perfection to Me (you are perfected through Me)
There are no flaws that I see (the Flawless One set you free)
Through My own Son, there are no flawed ones
You are perfection to Me…..

You are perfection to Me (you are perfected through Me)
There are no flaws that I see (the Flawless One set you free)
Through My own Son, there are no flawed ones
You are perfection…..
You are perfection, You are perfection to Me, You are perfection to Me.

Where Do You Run?

Written By: Karen Naber

Where Do You Run? © By Karen Naber
Vs. 1:
When that last thread of hope is gone and everything is going wrong
When Lady Luck has turned her back on you
When burdens sear your heart with pain and fear and doubt pour down like rain
When guilt and shame are drowning out the truth

Chorus:
Where do you run when your faith has reached the end? (Where do you run?)
Where do you go when you cannot find a friend? (Where do you run?)
Where do you turn when your world falls apart?
Where do you go to heal your broken heart?

Vs. 2:
When winter’s bitter cards are dealt and the sun’s rays are seldom felt
When the cold nights are just too much to bear
When dark clouds just seem to loom and salt is poured on every wound
When loneliness turns to deep despair

Chorus:

Bridge:
Where do you run? Where do you run? Where do you run? Where do you run? Oh, where do you run?

Vs. 3:
On a rugged cross He bled and died, the Son of God was crucified
To show us the Way, the Life, the Truth
But He was no ordinary man, on the third day He rose again
And now He is calling out to you….

Chorus:
And He’ll be there when your faith has reached the end (He’ll be there)
He’ll be there when you cannot find a friend (He’ll be there)
He’ll be there when your world falls apart
He’ll be there to heal your broken heart

He’ll be there, He’ll be there, He’ll be there, He’ll be there,
Oh, He’ll be there, He’ll be there, He’ll be there, He’ll be there
He’ll be there

Something Beautiful

Something Beautiful © By Karen Naber
Vs. 1:
You are my God, You whispered hope into my heart
Shined Your light into the dark and made something beautiful
You are “I Am”, spoke the words and time began
Breathed Your life into mortal man and made something beautiful

Chorus:
You formed each star up in the sky, You placed the wings on a butterfly
You collect each teardrop that I cry, Precious Lord, Precious Lord

Vs. 2:
You are my King, You created everything
Taught the nightingale to sing, something beautiful
You love us so, gave Your life to let us know
And by Your grace we are transformed, into something beautiful

Chorus:

Bridge:
What can I do that’s not been done, what can I sing that’s not been sung?
What can I give you, Lord, that’s priceless?
You gave Your life and shed Your blood
To ransom me, there’s no greater love
What can I give You, Lord, that’s priceless?
I’ll give You my heart, I’ll give You my heart

END:
You are my God, You whispered hope into my heart
Shined Your light into the dark and made something beautiful.
