Meek, mild---Come as a child
Sister, Brother, there is no other
Right now, To-day
He is the only way

Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus

To open Heaven, He was so driven
To fulfill God's covenant given
He came to save those
Who born as His foes
Recieved hope-The day He arose!

Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus
Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus

Bridge
Proving to us God is real
Living His life to reveal
God alive in human skin
Died to pay for all our sin

Why wait? Why risk
Losing such a great gift?
Say Yes! Say Yes!
From the mire He will lift

Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus •••And He shall be called...

The Advocate • The Lamb of God • The Ressurection and The Life

The Shepherd & Bishop of Souls•The Judge•The Lord of Lords•The Head of The Church

Master • Faithful & True Witness • Rock • High Priest!

The Door • Living Water • The Bread of Life

The Alpha & Omega • The True Vine • The Messiah!!!

Verse 1
Breakin' the law from the dawn of time
In me was found original crime
Bailiff came to take me away
Judge paid the price I could not pay
Judge paid the price I could not pay

Chorus
Freedom is in you
You already knew
Those who you called are justified
Once justified, then glorified
Wonderful Counselor the trial is through
Freedom is in you, Freedom is

Verse 2
Searching for truth - my own private eye
Finding a stand-in as my alabi
That's how was settled the infinite case
Your substitution determined my place
Your substutution determined my place

Chorus

Bridge
You had a plan before I was born
To raise me up and to adorn
This prisinor in hand-me-down
Trading my chains for a crown

Solo

Chorus

I Am Your Cross

Written By: Stanley J. Szymanski Jr. ©2005

I Am Your Cross ©2005 Stanley J. Szymanski Jr. (Time 4:06)

Verse 1
I am a child - orphan is my lot
I am the sick - I am wasted and forgot
Here sit the aged - lonely and weary
Face drawn from pain - Eyes red and teary

Chorus
I'm not a picture, in some magazine
I'm not a soundbite in your nightly routine
I am your gain when you count my loss
I am your duty; I am your cross

Verse 2
Clothe me this day - I am freezing and alone
Please nurse my body - I am broken to the bone
Visit me dear saint; yeah you on the roll
Serve feasts that feed the hole in my soul

Chorus
I'm not a picture, in some magazine
I'm not a soundbite in your nightly routine
I am your gain when you count my loss
I am your duty; I am your cross

Bridge
You were not saved to sit in your chair
God placed with you those who need care

Chorus
I'm not a picture, in some magazine
I'm not a soundbite in your nightly routine
I am your gain when you count my loss
I am your duty; I am your cross - I am your cross

Shield-Refuge-He is near

Praise the Lord, Praise the Lord

Verse1
Time to get my feet on the floor
Got to wake them, God I implore
Give them their sight, open their hearts
Renew their minds-Set them apart

Pre-chorus
Eyes wide shut this world is still asleep
Full of truth we sheep don't say a peep

Chorus
THE CLOCK IS TICKING
WAKE UP WAKE UP (4X)

Verse 2
Time to awake-Defening silence
To concede sure has consequence
Open our mouth till they have heard
Fill the barren, pour out The Word

Pre-chorus
Eyes wide shut this world is still asleep
Full of truth we sheep don't say a peep

Chorus
THE CLOCK IS TICKING
WAKE UP WAKE UP (4X)

Bridge
Redeem the time because the days are evil!

THE CLOCK IS TICKING
WAKE UP WAKE UP (4X)
