The Jesus Project

 Holbrook, Massachusetts, USA
BandChristianGospel

Rocking yet soulful with five voices in full, lush harmony. Our instruments provide a musical canvas for our voices to paint on. We glorify Jesus in every song we do. Whether it be an all out rocker or a soul felt ballad, our approach is the same. We praise our Living God.

Biography

The Jesus Project began as the worship team for a church planting in Southeastern Massachusetts back in 2005.

It took some time but as 2007 approached, the band, as it exists now - had been assembled.

Performing songs from such artists as - The Casting Crowns, Chris Tomlin, Building 429, and Mercy Me, the band began to cut its teeth and worked to develop the large vocal sound that would soon become their trademark.

After members began attending other houses of worship, the band sought to remain; playing together to praise God and fellowship with one another in His name and "THE JESUS PROJECT" was born.

What started as a basement band had turned into a traveling coffeehouse music ministry.

By 2008, the band had a handful of original songs and sought to record a demo. Soon, a 4 song EP was released independently and was well received.

2009 saw TJP (as friends and followers call them) play a full slate of coffeehouses and evangelical events. It was at this time the band was asked to play as part of a Christian music festival at a Minor League Baseball Stadium. The event was an overwhelming success, with THE JESUS PROJECT stealing the show. So much so that TJP headlined the same event the following year.

This led to the recording of the TJP's first CD titled "Sing For Jesus" - also self released. The response has been both enthusiastic and continual! The title track "Sing for Jesus" and the powerful "Lord of All" continue to receive regular airplay on Christian radio stations such as FM 90.5 "HISkids Ministry" radio show in the Boston area.

2010 saw TJP bring their ministry to East Coast venues in New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and Western MA.

2011 has seen yet another successful trip to PA.

Connecticut and New York events are currently in the works, with a possible West Coast trip being discussed.

With more than 15 original songs completed, a new CD is underway.

With The Lord's blessing, TJP continues to look for new ways to bring the word of God to His people through song.

TJP is every bit as comfortable playing a 30 seat coffeehouse as they are playing large outdoor stadiums, and they welcome any opportunity to do so.

Lyrics

Sing For Jesus

Written By: Turcotte/Johnson

We Gather here Lord
Only to Worship you.
We give thanks and praise
for all the things that you do.

We lift up our hearts
and sing you this song
and in Your Holy Name

So lift your eyes up to the sky
lift your eyes to the heavens
glorify the one and only
bring us closer to him.

And then we'll Sing for Jesus.
Sing for Jesus
Sing for Jesus
Sing for Jesus

We gather here Lord
only to worship you
we give thanks and praise
to all the things that you do

we lift up our hearts
and sing you this song
and in Your Holy Name
we all sing along.

So lift your eyes up to the sky
Lift your eyes to the heavens
Glorify the one and only
bring us closer to him

And then well Sing for Jesus
Sing for Jesus
Sing for Jesus
Sing for Jesus

Lord Of All

Written By: Turcotte

Lord of all creation
you guide us with your hands
you watch us as we prosper
when we fail you understand

These times are getting tough
we cant figure it out ourselves
Theres only one way to turn.

Lord of all
hear our call
as our souls cry out your name

God above
send your love
pour it down on us like rain

We sing to you our prayer
and we know that youre always there
we'll never lose with Jesus
The Lord of All

We stand before you Jesus
we lay our lives in your hands
loving children to our Father
Your wish is our command

You shower us with love
and you make all our dreams come true
so hear as we say to you...

Lord of All
hear our call
as our souls cry out your name

God above
send your love
pour it down on us like rain

We sing to you our prayer
and we know that youre always there
we'll never lose with Jesus
The Lord of All.

You amazed the world
with miracles
turned water into wine
rose from the grave
yet still today
I know I can call you mine.

Lord of all
Hear our call
as our souls cry out your name

God above
send your love
pour it down on us like rain

We sing to you our prayer
and we know that youre always there
we'll never lose with Jesus
The Lord of all.

We'll never lose with Jesus
The Lord of all.

From The Book Of Luke

Written By: Bouldry

I was travelling to Jerusalem one day
and met up with a man
he was dancing and singing
like a little boy

He was strong and handsome
and i thought he must be
The son of a King
but his clothes were rags
so i asked whats the cause of his joy

He told me
I was a lepper an hour ago
now lookit' Im a brand new man
My nine friends told me i was crazy
to believe that it was Jesus
But I know hes got the healing hands...

And he went away singing..

Thank you Lord, Thank you Jesus
for setting me free
Thank you Lord, Thank you Jesus
for rescuing me
Thank you Lord, Thank you Jesus
for making me whole
Thank you Lord, Thank you Jesus
for saving my soul.

I knew a woman that had an illness
for 12 hard years
a strange sickness indeed
Any wound to her body
many months it would bleed

When she heard about Jesus
and the works he was doing
with his healing hands
she knew if anyone could heal her
well, Jesus can

So i made my way
thtough the pressing crowd
barely touched the hem of his cloak
Jesus turned and smiled
and said have no fear
your faith has made you whole...
and she went away singing

Thank you Lord, Thank you Jesus
For setting me free
Thank you Lord, Thank you Jesus
For rescuing me
Thank you Lord, Thank you Jesus
For making me whole
Thank you Lord, Thank you Jesus
For Saving my soul.

SO i went to see this Jesus
and to hear him teach
at the home of my friend
I was lucky for a space
in the very same room

There were so many people there
to meet this man
they overcrowded the home.
and many dozens spilled
onto the road below.

When suddenly
they lowered down
from a hole in the roof
a man on his bed, paralyzed.

Jesus said to him kindly
your sins are forgiven
pick up your bed and rise
and he went away singing.

Thank you Lord, Thank you Jesus
for setting me free
Thank you Lord, Tnank you Jesus
for rescuing me
Thank you Lord, Thank you Jesus
for making me whole
Thank you Lord, Thank you Jesus
for saving my soul.
