Lyrics

Sacrifice

Written By: Mary Beth Weathington

Why Can't I find you today? I try to pray. Lord I wanna hear your voice everyday....beckoning to me. OH how I need you here, with my now and alway.

I fall to my knees and I'm begging you please to forgive me with all of my might......
For you are my king I want to give you everything, want to worship you with my life... for you are the Great Sacrifice

and oh I failed you today! I feel ashamed to pray.
my sin holds me down again. When will this ever end?
Oh how the distance sets in, I feel I've lost my closest friend

I fall to my knees and I'm begging you please to forgive me with all of my might......
For you are my king I want to give you everything, want to worship you with my life... for you are the Great Sacrifice.... and to you I should offer my life

But I try to serve you and speak your words everyday... I want my heart and my soul to be your clay. Lord please mend my mind today

I fall to my knees and I'm begging you please to forgive me with all of my might......
For you are my king I want to give you everything, want to worship you with my life... for you are the Great Sacrifice.... and to you I will offer my life... for you paid the greatest price!

Step Into My World

Written By: Mary Beth Weathington

Step into My World, see what I see, feel what I feel deep inside of me. Sense what I sense, no longer straddle the fence, together we could be, we'd live so eternally

Raspberries & Dreams

Written By: Mary Beth Weathington

... well, I'm tired of this dating scene
it can be so ugly, so rough and so mean!

...and I am tired of the stares and the glares, oh their painful glares,
when they're thinking of only their flesh and their bones

I just want someone to share my life.
I just want someone to share all of my dreams.
All of my thoughts and my heart and my soul and my simple fantasies of chocolates, raspberries and cream.

...and I'm tired of being used and abused...
of being the latest gossip or the latest news!
and I am tired of only the phone calls on Friday nights,
when Monday morning comes, oh you're never, no you're never in sight...

I just want someone to share my life.
I just want someone to share all of my dreams.
All of my thoughts and my heart and my soul and my simple fantasies of chocolates, dancing, raspberries and cream.

Well when I wake up from my little dream, oh, to find you're not there, I feel like it's real
I hate all of these feelings that I feel of how you are a phantom and you're just not real.

I just want someone to share my life.
I just want someone to share all of my dreams.
All of my thoughts and my heart and my soul and and my simple fantasies of chocolates, dancing, raspberries and cream.
Oh, take me dancing, feed me chocolates and cream.

and Lord, you know that I'm here that I'm waiting for you. I am waiting so dear...
and Lord you know that I'm still here, that I'm waiting for You to come dry these tears....

I just want someone to share my life.
I just want someone to share all of my dreams.
All of my thoughts and my heart and my soul and my simple fantasies of chocolates, dancing, raspberries and cream....

Oh take me dancing, feed me chocolates and cream...

oh bring me chocolates, raspberries... oh, please don't forget the cream...

Listen

Written By: Mary Beth Weathington

I cannot take this anymore
please take this from me.
Things are spinning faster
and faster 'til I lose control..

All these voices that I hear
they try to burrow in my brain
I just want to let it go and let it be
I'm ready to let go, let go of me...

and listen to my heart
shut the door turn out the lights
tune all the voices out
I want to see your power and might

speak to my heart
'til my whole world falls apart
will you break me and make me
I just want to hear your voice tonight

People telling me lots of things
they think I should do
they wonder and I wonder when will I break through

this craziness and confusion,
just clouds through my mind
more than lost in the busyness of time
i've got to try to find
a moment to unwind

and listen to my heart
shut the door turn out the lights
tune all the voices out
I want to see your power and might

speak to my heart
'til my whole world falls apart
will you break me and make me
I just want to hear your voice tonight

you're immortal, powerful, omnipotent, mighty God
the author of my desires
you consume in holy fire

maker of the universe
you are my rock
you calm the storm
immortal, invisble,
eternal, so merciful

alpha and omega
beginning and the end
our most precious redeemer
yet my best friend

speak to our hearts
our whole world is falling apart break us remake us
we want to hear your voice tonight

speak to our hearts
we'll let the tears fall down
tune the voices out
we want to see your power and might

speak to our hearts
our whole world is falling apart break us remake us
we want to hear your voice tonight

speak to our hearts
we'll let the tears fall down
tune the voices out
we want to see
your power and might

speak to our hearts
we'll let the tears fall down
we must yield to the Crown
to hear your voice tonight

we want to hear your voice tonight...
