Lyrics

When I Dance

Written By: Lydia Walker, Curt Ryle

I know I'll escape, from this small velvet case, when I get the chance
I long to be seen as a young ballerina, and someday I'll dance
I'll let down my hair, put my arms in the air, and just twirl round and round
Light on my feet with a soft melody in a pink satin gown

When I Dance, the whole world will see all the beauty inside of me
When I dance, I'll be everything that I dreamed I would be
When I dance

I'm slowly learning that everything's beautiful in it's own way
And all those old voices that told me I'm nothing will have less to say.
You see I built this box that I live in that's always been keeping me down
But I'll open the top and then I'll wind the key and I'll twirl round and round

I'll dance and I'll spin, turn my face to the wind.
And I'll be, I'll be free, yeah

Shades of You

Written By: Lydia Walker, Curt Ryle

When I see snow covered mountains
Or a rainbow yellow, red and blue
Or a western sky painted like a canvas
God, I see shades of you

When I stand beside the ocean
With a million stars dancing 'round the Moon
I can't believe there are non believers
God, I see shades of you

Everything you've created is unique
Oh but love is your greatest masterpiece
You're the way, you're the life, you're the proof
God, I see shades of you

No two people are alike in your creation
Some believe but some don't have a clue
Some walk in light, while others walk in darkness
Still I see shades of you

Beloved

Written By: Lydia Walker

His eyes caress my face, says do not be afraid
I'm watching over you, in my image you were made
His arms hold me like wings, a holy covering
Keeping me from harm, he calls me....
Beloved, Beloved

He knows my every fear, and makes the disappear
I count it all as joy, as He counts my tears
When I run, He'll chase, and call me to a place
That I have never known, full of grace
Beloved, He calls me Beloved

Love deep as the sea, His banner over me
Claiming His bride, and the victory
The truth is what He says, the words written in red
The Savior to the world, the Savior to the world

The truth is what He says, the words written in red
The Savior to the world, in life and death
So I could be loved, so I could be loved
He calls me Beloved, He calls me Beloved

God, Heal The World

Written By: Curt Ryle, Lydia Walker

I'm reaching out for you this time, for the answers I can't find
It only lets me know how weak I am
I've tried to walk this road alone, but in the end I know who's strong
The time has come to choose the Master's plan
I've never seen this world in the awful shape it's in

God, heal this world we're living in
Restore our faith in you again
Reveal to us that you're the way the truth that will endure
God, show the world what you've shown me
Open their eyes so they might see
That you're the answer, you're the cure
God, heal the world

Lord, we break your heart each day
The things we do, the things we say
Why you love us just amazes me
We chase the world when we ought to pray
Then blame you for the mess we've made
You show mercy even when we don't believe
The time has come for us to get down on our knees

If those who are called by His name, will humble themselves and pray
He will heal their land

Son in My Eyes

Written By: Curt Ryle, Lydia Walker

Walking with the Son, got the Son in my eyes
Talking about Jesus, the light of my life
Out of the darkness, the future is bright
With the Son in my eyes

His eye is on the sparrow, oh and I know He's watching over me
Won't worry about tomorrow, no dark clouds I see
It's raining roses from the sky
With the Son in my eyes

He give me hope, He gives me rest
He gives me everything that I need
He's faithful and true, He's making me new
His spirit is setting me free

Jesus walked on the water, He's got me walking on faith
All my pain and my sorrow has been washed away
I've got everlasting life, with the Son in my eyes
I've got everlasting life, with the Son in my eyes
