Biography

Whatever it takes we have chosen to work as hard as possible to pursue Christ with all our hearts. Our band has been able to be involved in many different areas of ministry. We have played for; camps, church services, revivals, Disciple Now?s, fifth quarter fellowships, See you at the Pole rallies, Conventions, retreats, and other weekend events. We have written songs for the SBTC in Texas which was used as a theme and a video for distribution. We have traveled to, Vancouver British Columbia, Canada, Michigan, Louisiana, and many cities in Texas. We truly love doing what God has chosen for our lives. We are a grassroots band with integrity and great enthusiasm. Our influences include U2, Coldplay, Keane, Lifehouse, MercyMe, The Fray, Greatness in tragedy, Hillsong, Vertical horizon, Radiant, Auckland, David Crowder Band, an Third Eye Blind. We all agree that this is the road that Christ had chosen for us to travel. We have a passion, a drive, and a desire to see the lost come to know the God of the Universe that has been so faithful to them in their personal lives. We understand that each one of us do not come from the same background or even the same denomination. We know that this ministry is not about us or anything we can do. It is about proclaiming that God was, is, and will be God no matter what. This is about knowing that we are as everyone else, sinners, needing the blood of Christ as redemption for sin. The four of us strive in every opportunity to make known the name of Christ. Love Jesus, for He lives!

Lyrics

I Am Here

Written By: Clint Stevens

It doesn’t have to be this way.
How long are you gonna run away?
You’re tired, confused and unaware,
That I am here, I am here.
Broken by the burden you bear,
You cry out, it feels like no one’s there.
But child, you’re mine and have no fear.
I am here, I am here.
Here I am, arms open wide.
Fall into Me, it’s your place to hide.
And know My voice and the words I say.
Hear Me now, “I know your name.”
Holdin’ on to hope unseen,
Promised by the world to fulfill your dreams.
Yet now, it’s only empty tears,
Call My name, I am here.
Here I am, arms open wide.
Fall into Me, it’s your place to hide.
You know My voice and the words I say.
Hear Me now, “I know your name.”
I never said that the road would be very easy,
I only said I would never leave your side.
Believe in these words I have spoken,
For one day, everything will be all right.
Here I am, arms open wide.
Fall into me, it’s your place to hide,
And know my voice and the words I say
Hear Me now, “I know your name.”
So, here I am, arms open wide.
Fall into Me, it’s your place to hide.
And know My voice and the words I say.
Hear Me now, “I know your name.”
“I know your name”

Run

Written By: Clint Stevens

Come back to me, I’m waiting still.
I know your heart, know how you feel.
There is more to this, it’s yours to take.
I took your place, the price is paid.
I’ll run to you for you’re My own,
With open arms to hold you close.
Prepare the feast, prepare the robe
It’s all for you when you run home
So I run to you, will you run to Me?
I’ve tried and tried and failed again,
For on my own, I fall to sin.
I embraced the world with open arms
Then I found myself further than far.
I’ve dined with lust and tasted greed.
I fed myself with selfish need.
I’m all alone and on my knees,
But I’m standing up and running free.
So I run to you, will You run to me?
So I run to you, will You run to me?
But, Your love is calling,
And Your grace is finding me.
But, Your love is calling,
And Your grace is finding me.
So I run to you, will You run to me?
So I run to you, will You run to me?
So I run to you, will You run to me?
So I run to you, will You run to me?

This Is For You

Written By: Clint Stevens

You suffered and died, you gave your life for me, for me.
Be glorified, you sacrificed for me, for me.
So to you, our lives we bring.
You are God, this is our hour to rave.
This is for you, this is for you,
All that we are, we offer to you.
This is for you, this is for you.
All that we have, we offer to you.
I fall to my face, I humbly praise the King, the King.
How can it be, the man that bleeds for me, for me.
So to you our lives we praise.
You are God, this is our hour to rave.
This is for you, this is for you.
All that we are, we offer to you.
This is for you, this is for you.
All that we have, we offer to you
This is for you, this is for you.
All that we are, we offer to you.
This is for you, this is for you.
All that we have, we offer to you.
Here is my heart, here is my soul,Here is my all.
Here is my heart, here is my soul, here is my all.
I give it to you.
This is for you, this is for you.
All that we are, we offer to you.
This is for you, this is for you.
All that we have, we offer to you
It’s all for you, it’s all for you…
