Fill Me In
Music & Lyrics © 2008 | Aaron Davidson
Watch The Performance (Medley w. "Taking Over Me")

Beneath all the ink and blood
There’s a history
Beneath all the stars and skies
There’s a mystery

Something More, to quell the fears of man
Something More, to fill us in

Behind all this guilt and shame
Lies a man in need
Behind all these toils and pains
Lies a plan indeed

Something More, to quell the fears of man
Something More, you steal our hearts to mend
Something More, to fill us in

Beyond all my wildest dreams
There’s a romance here
Stunts my breath and stops my heart
And captures me
Beneath my own stubborn pride
A darkness nears
Just as all seems done and lost
My God appears

Something More, to quell the fears of man
Something More, you steal our hearts to mend
Something More, just because you can
Something More, to fill us in

Fill Me In

Taking Over Me
Lyrics © 2008 | Matthew Goodwin
Music © 2008 | Aaron Davidson

Watch The Performance (Medley w. "Fill Me In")

Every day, the story goes,
I bundle tightly for the cold.
My feet walk slow, this beaten road,
And my heart directs them where to go.

But this fragrance smells so sweet, And I surrender all of me,
And this love is just a dream, But its taking over me.

Faces come and faces go,
But this dream sleeps tightly down below.
I’m ready now for love’s appeal,
For I fear this dream’s becoming real.

I’ve spent all my days looking for love that was broken,
Chasing a romance, that always left me dry.
I’ve spent all my nights dreaming of words never spoken,
If only I had known, you loved me all the while.

You broke in, and you stole my show,
Now love burns brightly in my soul.
A love that fills my fractured heart,
A love that’s chased me from the start.

Heaven fall down, Heaven fall down.
Heaven fall down on us, Heaven fall down.

What is this pain? Where is this love?
My heart is faint, What’s here for me, O God?

What are these lies? Where is this Truth?
What can we hope for? Hear our cries, O God.

You are our Hope. You are our Joy.
You are the portion for which we wait.
You are our Truth. You are our love.
For we have not been forsaken.
We’ve not been forsaken.

Run To Me
Music & Lyrics © 2008 | Natalie Closner

Watch The Performance

I’ve run to everything but you, searching high and low,
For just one thing - I’ve doggedly pursued and I have not found.
‘Til the moment I barely lift my head in your direction...

You run to me when I haven’t even called.
You run to me when I have nothing left at all.
You offer me what I have searched for everywhere else,
And have not found, until you run to me.

I’ve become scattered and confused thinking I am alone,
And I have run circles around myself looking for someone to hold on to.
‘Til the moment I barely lift my head in your direction...

I have looked for love from false lovers.
I have been left standing in the cold.
And when you should be waiting for me to come crawling back,
You don’t – You don’t –

Set Him Free
Music & Lyrics © 2008 | Matthew Goodwin

Watch The Performance

They put you up on the stand,
And they tried you like a man,
They put a robe on your back,
And that was the day the sky turned black.

They spat their words in your face,
You had nothing to say,
Not a single reply,
And the crowd shouted “crucify!”

I am the murderer and thief,
And insurrection follows me,
But the voices in the crowd kept screaming, “set him free!”
So they put you up on that cross so you could die for me.

I thought that death was my due,
I thought I was dirt in your shoes,
Thought I had run outta’ slack,
But you gave everything to buy me back.

They took the bonds from my hands,
I didn’t understand,
They told me I could go free,
That was my king who died for me...

What sort of justice here is this?
That the judge pays for the crimes that I commit?
What sort of kingdom here is this?
That the king would sell his crown to pay my debt?

Someday
Music & Lyrics © 2008 | Karianne Gwinn

Watch The Performance

Make this rain go away, please make this rain go away,
I need the sun to shine today, please make the sun shine someday.

I’ve been waiting for inspiration from the heart,
How did I not know that it was there from the start?
So as I sing these words I hope my message reaches you,
I can see your bleeding heart,
Still you’re a warrior through and through.

You are loved, you’re surrounded by the people who care for you.
You are loved, my friend, I pray that the Lord will see you through.

Make this rain go away, please make this rain go away,
I need the sun to shine today, please make the sun shine someday.

No, I won’t sing a sappy song of love,
‘Cause there’s far too much pain in this world that we live.
I just wanted you to know that I’m here for you,
Daily I remember all the pain you’re going through.

You are loved, in your brokenness He’s promised to be true.
You are loved, my friend, in your despair He’s reaching out to you.

Make this rain go away, please make this rain go away,
I need the sun to shine today, please make the sun shine today.

Make this rain go away, please make this rain go away,
I need the sun to shine today, I know the sun will shine someday.

I Have Calmed & Quieted My Soul

Watch The Performance

Who shepherds his flock of sheep,
And tames us with hope and love?

Lord, you can calm and quiet us,
  Give us sound and peaceful sleep.
Lord, you can calm and quiet us,
  Give us sound and peaceful sleep.

Like a child in his bed,
  Our hope is forever in You.
Who shepherds His flock of sheep,
  And tames us with hope and love.

I do not concern myself
With things too great and marvelous for me...
For me

Like a weaned child on its mother,
  So is my soul that’s calmed within.
Like a weaned child on its mother,
  So is my soul that’s calmed within.

Like a child in his bed,
  Our hope is forever in You.
Who shepherds His flock of sheep,
  And tames us with hope and love...

You are great and marvelous,
Enough now and forevermore...
Now and forevermore

Who shepherds His flock of sheep
  And tames us with hope and love

Inconvenience
Music & Lyrics © 2008 | Kelsey Lockhart

Watch The Performance

I need freedom –

Life is so convenient,
But what does that mean?
Everything’s all about me,
And what works best for me.

Clarity, how can it reach me,
With all these man made things?
Wasting my time, consuming my thoughts,
My soul feels under siege.

I need freedom –

Maybe life’s too convenient, day to day we’re blind to see.
Everything that’s around us, and what this world has truly come to be…

Interrupt me, intervene, slow me down, cause I can’t even breathe

Stop. Please stop. We’ve got to stop.

Bring Us Back
Music & Lyrics © 2008 | Andy Zook

Watch The Performance

Light emerges from the moon,
Sun is blotted out and soon
The city’s burning far below,
As prideful men declare that they don’t know
If they are hypocrites,
Quiet now and everyone forgets.

Making every dollar count, Every coin you touch is the same amount
You build your throne of liquid gold and bones,
Does that get you respect?
We neglect, a world we promised to protect.

So bring us back to life,
Bring us back to life, tonight.
Bring us back to life,
Bring us back to life…

With every drop of water falls,
Repetitious rooster calls
So sing until tomorrow child,
For tomorrow lasts for such a little while,
You could bring it back to life tonight.

Bring us back to life,
Bring us back to life, tonight.
As this sacrifice still cries out.

The poor will build the poor,
The poor will build the poor.

So bring us back to life,
Bring us back to life.

The Valley
Music & Lyrics © 2008 | Michael Hensley

Watch The Performance

Lord, I need you now
Yes I need you now
Lord, I need you now
My God, I need you now

I’m here in the valley and there’s no one else around
I’m looking for a place to rest but none can be found

I’m here in the valley and the water has run dry
My soul feels like a desert and I cannot see the sky

Lord, I need you now
Yes I need you now
Lord, I need you now
My God, I need you now

I’m here in the valley and sin has run its course
I’ve tried to speak the truth but my voice is far too hoarse

My heart is full of sadness and my mind is full of fear
My spirit aches for something more and I really need you here

In this dry and weary land, my body longs for you
I’ve seen the wonders of your hand and I know you’ll pull me through
And I can’t wait to see the day when this world will pass away
And your love will break through

Watch The Performance

Did you see me?         Of course I did, I’m in the sky
Climb up that tree?     I saw you climb, I saw you climb
No, I was quick          You sure were quick

Where those your eyes?     Of course they were, you know my eyes
Green in disguise?             I’m not disguised, I’m right behind
I should have known         I see you right now

I’ll put on a masquerade,
And you’ll find me another day,
I’m gone, Gone.

Did you see me?             I saw you go under the waves
Drowned by the sea?       They sure were tall, they hit you hard
No, it was dark               But I never left
How can you say?           I speak the truth, I tell no lies
It has been paid?            I’ve told you once, a thousand times
Here, take my hands       Here, take my hands

Chase me round and play my game,
It’s easier to stay the same,
I’m gone, Gone.

I’m out of breath         I know you are, take some of mine
Running to death         Slow down, don’t work yourself so hard
You smell like home     I’ll run to where you are

Your Great Love
Music & Lyrics © 2008 | Matthew Goodwin

Watch The Performance

When I feel beaten down by these troubled days,
I pray my spirit seeks only to see your face,
Though my voice may tire and my heart grows faint,
I will draw near to you and sing this song of praise.

It’s your great love, It’s your great love,
Jesus my song is your great love.

When I feel you near, and joy becomes my grace,
When you reveal yourself through a friendly face,
For all the days my soul seems to spread it’s wings,
I will draw near to you and I will sing, sing, sing…

Of your great love, it’s your great love,
Jesus my song is your great love

Jesus I beg of you, don’t hide your face from me,
As well I beg myself, not to turn from thee,
And as I place my life into your hands and trust,
No matter joy nor pain, I won’t stop singing of…

Of your great love, it’s your great love,
Jesus my song is your great love

It Is Well
Arrangement © 2008 | Katie Litzenberg
Lyrics (Public Domain) | Horatio Spafford (c.1873)

Watch The Performance

When peace, like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot, Thou has taught me to say,
It is well, it is well, with my soul.

It is well, with my soul,
It is well, with my soul,

Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come,
Let this blessed assurance control;
That Christ has regarded my helpless estate,
And hath shed His own blood for my soul.

It is well, with my soul,
It is well, with my soul,

My sin, oh, the bliss of this glorious thought!
My sin, not in part but the whole,
Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!

And Lord, haste the day when my faith shall be sight,
The clouds be rolled back as a scroll;
The trump shall resound, and the Lord shall descend,
Even so, it is well with my soul!

I Am Yours, I Am Claimed
Music & Lyrics © 2008 | Taylor Neal

Watch The Performance

Your love’s not safe with me, Lord, so take it back.
Everything you gave me I burned to ash,
As a sacrifice, to a different light.

Lord I choose to cause you pain,
But you pull me close to say,

That I am yours, I am claimed, and you still love me the same,
No more scars, no more shame, no mark except your name.

Lord, I’m so afraid that I’ll lose it all.
Your presence goes beyond what is beautiful,
And I need it most, where I go.

Cause I crawl through all that’s wrong,
And you’ve written on your palms,

That I am yours, I am claimed, and you still love me the same.
No more scars, no more shame, no mark except your name.
I am yours, I am claimed, no more scars, no more shame.

That I am yours, I am claimed, and you still love me the same
No more scars, no more shame, no mark except your name
I am yours, I am claimed
I am yours, I am claimed

Tell Him all your grief, Tell Him all your sin
He’ll give half His robe, just to wrap you in

Give Him both your hands, give Him all your heart
He’ll give all His robe, to hold off the dark

If you’re scared to pray, and you’re fast in bed
He will pull you out, to anoint your head

If your hope is gone, and your thoughts aren’t your
He will touch your face, He will make you pure

He who made your hair, He who made your feet
He has made you whole, He has made your sheets

He will take your arm, He will strip you bare
He will take your hand, He will dress you fair

I am Yours, I am Claimed
