Lyrics

That's the Power of the Cross

Written By: Shelly E. Johnson

(Verse 1)
Once in darkness, now in light
Once blind, now you see
Once a sinner, now a saint
Once bound, now free

(Chorus)
That's the power of the cross
See the chains fall
That's the power of the cross
See the chains fall

(Verse 2)
Once a stranger, now a child
Empty, now filled
Once condemned, now reconciled
Broken, now healed

(Repeat Chorus)

(Verse 3)
Once a prodigal, now home
Once lost, now found
Once an enemy, now a friend
Once poor, now crowned!

(Repeat Chorus)

Mosaic of Grace

Written By: Shelly E. Johnson

(Verse 1)
Just a pile of broken glass
Pieces of a painful past
Shattered by the storms of life
This is all that’s left inside

(Chorus)
He can take the fallen pieces
And lay them in the perfect place
When His work is finally finished
You will be a mosaic of grace

(Verse 2)
In your pain you may not see
The beauty of the masterpiece
But there’s a greater work of art
Than what each piece alone imparts

(Repeat Chorus)

(Bridge)
Hallelujah, Hallelu
To the God who makes all things new
Hallelujah, Hallelu
Hallelu

(Chorus)
He will take the fallen pieces
And lay them in the perfect place
When His work is finally finished
You are a mosaic of grace

One Day

Written By: Shelly E. Johnson, Jayme Thompson

(Verse 1)
Rock and tree and sky and wave
Call out our Creator’s praise
Mountain peak and turning leaf
Reveal Your wonder

But we who have the most to say
Often hide our praise away
We confess with thankfulness
You are Savior

(Chorus)
One day every knee will bow
One day every soul cry out
Holy, Holy Lord
Let us raise our voices now
Bring the song of heaven down
Holy, Holy Lord

(Verse 2)
Hear the saints’ and angels’ song
We were made to sing along
Let it soar to heaven’s door
For Your glory

Let the song of the redeemed
Rise up as an offering
Take our hearts, all we are
Into Your story

(Repeat Chorus)

(Bridge)
Holy, holy
Holy, holy
Holy, holy Lord

(Repeat Chorus)

Hymn To His Coming

Written By: Shelly E. Johnson, Jason Dyba

(Verse 1)
The Holy Lamb
Slain for man
All glory and honor are Yours
All glory and honor are Yours

The Great I Am
Will come again
Prepare the way of the Lord
Prepare the way of the Lord

(Pre Chorus)
One day every knee will bow
One day every voice cry out

(Chorus)
Holy is the Lord
Holy is the Lord
Holy is the Lord
Who was and is and is to come

(Verse 2)
The fields will fade
And kingdoms fall
And only the Word will remain
Only Your Word will remain

(Repeat PreChorus & Chorus)

Draw Near

Written By: Shelly E. Johnson

(Verse 1)
Just as Moses spoke to You face to face
And Daniel heard from You in his dreams
And David with his songs of praise
So I long for You to speak to me

And as Job heard Your voice in the whirlwind
And Isaiah saw Your throne room of glory
Samuel heard You call his name again and again
So I long for You to show Yourself to me

(Chorus)
I’ll draw near, closer Lord to Thee
Lord, draw nearer to me

(Verse 2)
So the next time I wonder if You’re strong enough
To calm the storm that’s raging against me
I’ll remember that night with your disciples
When you spoke and silenced the sea

And whenever I am desperate for a glimmer of hope
A miracle of sweet relief
I’ll remember how the woman touched the fringe of Your robe
And she was healed just because she believed

(Repeat Chorus)

What About Them

Written By: Shelly E. Johnson

(Verse 1)
What about the little girl
On the desert sands of Africa
Who’s never heard that "Jesus saves"?

What about the teenage boy
On the streets of Calcutta
Brought up in the Hindu faith?

They’re surrounded by Your glory
But they have never heard Your story
What about them?

(Chorus)
I know You’re loving
I know You’re just
But sometimes the two don’t seem to agree
This world is evil
And punish You must
But those who have never had the chance to believe
What about them?

(Verse 2)
What about the Muslim wife
Who says her prayers five times a day,
Always taught her belief is true?

What about the Buddhist monk
Who's praying for enlightenment
Doing all he’s ever known to do?

They’re surrounded by Your glory
But they have never heard Your story
What about them?

(Repeat Chorus)

(Bridge)
These are the questions keeping me up at night
Gnawing deep at my soul
If for no other reason than to help me realize
The answers I may never know

(Chorus - modified)
But I know You’re loving
And I know You’re just
And one day the two will perfectly agree
This world is evil
And punish You must
But how will You give them a chance to believe?

Cause You care about them
Yes, You care about them…
