Track Name: Be Free
Be free.

We were made to be free. We were made to be set free.
We were made to make a difference.
I want to be the change. I want to stand for my beliefs.
Set me free, oh God. Set me free!

Set me free. Set me free.

What if we took Your words more seriously, God? What if we all put on love?
I have surrendered the works of myself and accept your Holy Spirit.
If we live in Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit.

No longer held down. I will not be held down.
These chains, removed, will no longer hold me down.
To put away my pain, the desires of my past,
I seek out the Holy One. I surrender all of me.

I surrender. I surrender all of me.
Holy Spirit, Be My Guide.
Where You are, there is freedom!

Come just now.
Come just now.
Come right now.
Holy Spirit, come just now.
Track Name: Hold Fast
Through thick and thin I hold true to my promise.
I’ll never quit. I'll never give up on this.

Through thick and thin I’ll hold true to my every word
I made a promise I intend to keep.
They cannot persuade me to unbelief.
Nothing can keep me from you. Nothing can pull me away.

Hold fast. Stand strong.
Your word is worth more.
Hold fast.

My flesh will fight against me, but I am resistant.
And even though I’m far from perfect, I’ll stay consistent.
I will overcome infidelity every day cause you are reality.
I’ll never leave your side. I won't turn my back.

Through thick and thin I hold true to my promise.
I’ll never quit. I'll never give up on this.

Through thick and thin I’ll hold true to my every word
I made a promise I intend to keep.
They cannot persuade me to unbelief.
Nothing can keep me from you. Nothing can pull me away.

I made a promise to you.
I am a man of my word.

I am a man of my word.
Track Name: Restore
Is it all downhill from here, admitting that I've been wrong?
All this time I've been hiding, feeling it will go away.
I'd been so cold with no hope in sight, and you were there to pick me up.
You've always been there to pick me up.

Beaten down, bruised, and broken, but we're not dead.

I feel my life slipping down roads I've never been.
Will you restore me? Will you restore me?

And no matter what i've gotten myself in; you never judge me, you always love me.
And no matter how deep i dig this grave you're always there to show me grace.

And no matter what i've gotten myself in; you never judge me, you always love me.
And no matter how deep i dig this grave you are there to show me grace.
Keep me in line. Keep me on track.
When i can't walk to the mountain top will you carry me?

I feel my life slipping down roads I've never been.
Will you restore me? Will you restore me?
Track Name: Hands
Here I am face to face -- my weakness, my enemy.
I can see right through you but I can't destroy you.
Not because of lack of strength but because of lack of will.
My mind between my flesh and heart but i know the truth.

You are beautiful. My hands control my actions.
You are so beautiful

Here I am, face to face -- my weakness, my enemy.
I can see right through you but I can't destroy you.
Not because of lack of strength but because of lack of will.
My mind between my flesh and heart, but i know the truth.

Instruments! My hands are instruments of who I am.
Just for once, can i not cave under this pressure weighing down on me?
Oh God, I'm willing, but my flesh is so weak.

You've given me direction. You have given me strength.
You've given me life. In You, I overcome.

You are beautiful. My hands are yours, guide my actions.
You are so beautiful. I desire to follow you.
Track Name: Dives (ft. Nick Detty)
He has everything he's ever wanted in this life.
I have nothing, a poor man begging.
His coat costs more than my life these days.
I sleep at his gate hoping for scraps to eat.

I'm getting weaker everyday.
Your feasts are greater everyday.

It seems I've taken my last breath tonight.
No more will I be begging. I'm feeling my soul take flight.
One on each arm, these angels carry me to Abraham's side.
Bury me in the ground, I've been given new life.

All Glory to God, I feel no pain!
My sores are gone. I thirst no more.
I will never have to beg again!
All Glory!


(Nick Detty)
I find this life has nothing to give me. I work to toil underneath the setting sun.
Holy Father, I live in anguish. These flames torment my very soul.
I can’t hide my shame. I see now I never honored Your name.
Take these rags, these riches, this state of mind where I have nothing to claim.
Warn my brothers, to trust the King who gave the poor man a new song to sing.
That the chasm we face is far too wide, without the Light, an ocean could not cause this fire to subside.
