Lyrics

Together We Can

Written By: Summer Johnson

Together We Can

A little boy, just 3 years old,
no food for him to eat,
no tears left for him to cry,
no shoes upon his feet.

He waits for you to come,
pick him right up off the floor,
he might live a world away,
or he may live right next door.

A teenage girl, just turned 14,
left school to join a gang,
fighting takes the place of learning,
missed it when the school bell rang.

When we forget education,
the world has no way to cope,
lost and left to wander,
alone and without hope.

If we open our eyes and see,
what this world could really be....

Chorus:
Together we can build a new tomorrow,
Together we can change our hearts and minds,
together we we can heal the broken hearted,
and create the ties that bind.
together we can watch the colors fade,
from black and white to gray,
if we stand together, to find a way,
Together we can.

A man who just turned 42,
lost his job, lost his home,
he feels just like a failure,
with his spirit left to roam.

He falls down on his knees,
asks for God to show the way.
He cries in desperation,
help me Lord he humbly prays.

If we open our eyes and see,
what this world could really be....

Chorus

Bridge:
No more pain, and no more tears,
no more hunger, no more fears,
friends and neighbors, sisters and brothers,
if we stand hand in hand,
with God's grace we'll understand...

Chorus

Perfectly Broken

Written By: Summer Johnson

Perfectly Broken (Jade's Song)

Verse 1:

Given life by Your blood,
Cleansed by Living Water,
Created in Your image,
Your the Bridge to take me Higher.

My soul longs to praise You,
Reflecting Your glory,
Though I am only human,
You're the Author of my story.

Choosing to live for You, I am....

(Chorus)

Perfectly broken,
Set apart for You,
Gently reborn,
For my spirit to breakthrough.

Softly forgiven,
I give my heart to you,
Perfectly broken,
Only to be made brand new.

Verse 2:

To be chosen in this world,
To live my life for You,
Comes with trials and pain,
The world is blinded from the truth.

To turn away from sin,
Standing out from the crowd,
May not not be popular,
But I will praise Your name out loud.

Choosing to live for You, I am.....

(Chorus)

Bridge:

With every choice, With just one voice,
You make me whole, You cleanse my soul,
Broken down you build me up....

Chorus

Your Little One

Written By: Summer Johnson

How do I explain,
The joy that's in my heart?
The fire you helped to start,
Your word I just adore.

They see me as just one,
So small mot much to say,
my job to learn and play,
I know I'm so much more.

Chorus:

So here I am,
Use me to your Glory,
Make this the golden chapter,
Of my story,
Can't keep this to myself,
Can't put this on a shelf,
My journey's just begun,
I will forever be,
Your Little One.

Won't you stop and listen,
I wish for you to see,
the light that shines through me,
God behind my eyes,

To let others know you,
through my actions and my cause,
Let the thunder and applause,
Rise to the skies.

(Chorus)

I raise my hands,
I raise my voice,
To live for You,
I've made my choice.

(Chorus)

tag:
I will forever be,
Your little one.

Dance With Me

Written By: Summer Johnson

A walk in the park,
A push on the swing,
One special man,
All the fun the day brings.

teddy bears and lace,
tea party for two,
Spending the day,
with just me and you.

With arm stretched out I say,

Chorus

Dance with me Daddy,
Spin me around,
Lift me up high,
Take my feet of the ground.
Protect me and teach me,
Show me what's right.
Guide me to love,
Help my soul to take flight.

While life is fun and carefree,
Daddy, dance with me.

A walk into Heaven,
Hear the angels all sing,
All Glory to God,
To my Father, my King,

Clothing of white,
Safe in God's hands,
Wrapped in His love,
Complete God's plans.

With arms stretched out I pray,

Dance with me Daddy,
Spin me around,
Lift me up high,
take my feet off the ground.
Protect me and teach me.
SHow me what's right,
Guide me to love,
Help my soul to flight.

When life becomes eternity,
Jesus, dance with me.

I Will Take You Home

Written By: Summer Johnson

Posters hung on every wall,
Says lost will give reward,
Our beloved pet and friend,
Help our family be restored.

The world simply rushes past,
No one stops to see,
Caught up in this crazy world,
No one looks down to notice me.

Chorus:

Through all my pain and sorrow,
No one takes my debt to pay,
Craving food and water,
I hear His voice say,

I know your name, you'll thirst no more,
You can't do this on your own.
Frightened and alone,
Follow me, I will take you home.

Posters hung on every wall,
Says lost will give reward,
Our beloved child taken,
Help our family be restored.

The world simply rushes past,
No one takes the time to read,
Caught up in this crazy world,
No one stops to set me free.

Chorus

Savior hung there on the cross,
If lost you can be saved,
My beloved Father broken,
His sacrafice is to be praised.

The world simply rushes past,
No one stops to worship thee,
Unaware of Your forgiveness,
Your gift could set them free.

Through all your pain and sorrow,
I took your debt to pay.
Taste the Fruit and Living Water,
Hear me when I say,

I know your name, you'll thirst no more,
You can't do this on your own.
Frightened and alone,
Follow Me, I will take you home.
