Lyrics

Great King

Written By: Paul Stephens

I see a great king
The universe is at His feet
And in His presence
The angels tremble when they see
The great king

I see a great king
He traded crowns for thorns instead
For my transgressions
Humility upon His head

We cry Holy, Holy is He
We cry Holy, Holy is He

I see my father
His arms outstretched to hold me
For I'm no longer
Condemned, I'm cleansed and worthy

We cry Holy, Holy is He
We cry Holy, Holy is He
We cry Holy, Holy is He
We cry Holy, Holy is He

I see my father
his arms outstretched to hold me
For I'm no longer
Condemned, I'm cleansed
He's made me worthy
He's a great king

God of Ages

Written By: Paul Stephens and David Gaulton

In the earth and sky
All creatures there alive
I see beauty, all Your handiwork in line
In the raging sea
The torrent storm it feeds
I see glory to reveal Your mystery

All that my eyes can see
Your love is what I find
All over history
I see Your design
O God of ages I believe

On the sacred page
I read of saving grace
How it moves my heart
To heed Your guiding ways
When Your glory falls
Your people stand in awe
How we long to live
In Your amazing love

All that my eyes can see
Your love is what I find
All over history
I see Your design
O God of ages I believe

On the hill that day
When darkness overcame
There Your Son became
A precious offering
But in death's defeat
The empty tomb, indeed
Declared the victory
Of He who lives in me

All that my eyes can see
Your love is what I find
All over history
I see Your design
O God of ages I believe
O God of ages I believe
O God of ages I believe

You're Alive

Written By: Paul Stephens

Look at this world
How it turns
How You spoke it into action
And seamlessly it happened
The whole universe
Even realms we've not discovered
The galaxies unnumbered

Look at this hope
Each man can hold
How each heart was formed and fashioned
And life is so much more than chance
I might never know
Why there's pain and why there's grieving
But all these things they tell me

God You're alive You're alive
Your glory fills these heavenly skies
Though I can't see with my eyes
Everything You've placed in my heart
Testifies
That You're Alive

Look at this tree
How it stands
And how once You came from heaven
To die upon it's branches
And I can't forget
How in three days
All history was changed

God You're alive You're alive
Your glory fills these heavenly skies
Though I can't see with my eyes
Everything You've placed in my heart
Testifies
That You're Alive

This Is How I Know

Written By: Paul Stephens

This is how I know He is real
This is how I know I'm not forsaken
This is how I know there is life eternally
This is how I know that He loves me

Rolling hills
Clouds with thunder
All the crashing waves
Never to be tamed
The earthly creatures
All my sparrow friends
Never will they fly
Away from my Father's eye
You can say I wrong
Caught in my delusion but

This is how I know He is real
This is how I know I'm not forsaken
This is how I know there is life eternally
This is how I know that He loves me

The simple things
Like early mornings
How the sun will rise
And dispel the darkest night
The love we share
The sound of laughter
How even in our tears
I know the father's here
You can say I'm wrong
Caught in my delusion but

This is how I know He is real
This is how I know I'm not forsaken
This is how I know there is life eternally
This is how I know that He loves me

If all we need is faith
Not bigger than a mustard seed
Why won't we believe
We'd move a mountain range
And speak with confidence to see
Your signs and wonders here

The slave in chains
The lost, the stranger
We live in such a way
Where there is hell to pay
All my regret
My deepest sorrow
And how I'm free from shame
When I call on His name
You can say I'm wrong
Caught in my delusion but

This is how I know He is real
This is how I know I'm not forsaken
This is how I know there is life eternally
This is how I know that He loves me
