VERSE: In Your farewell discourse, I’ve found hope That in Your Father’s house I’ll find a home CHORUS: I’ll be Your bride, oh yes I’ll be Your bride, oh yes I’ll be Your bride, oh yes I’ll be Your bride, oh yes
2.
VERSE 1: This is the time of year When I should not be here But I have no one to fear So I’ll stay From up on my rooftop I see something that I want A beautiful debutante Bring her to me CHORUS: I wanna make love, not war I wanna make love, not war I wanna make love Not war VERSE 2 Am I a king or not? And what does that mean, if not I can have everything I want And maybe even more? So if I want your wife Then I’m gonna have your wife Even if it costs your life On the front lines of my war CHORUS: I wanna make love, not war I wanna make love, not war I wanna make love Not war VERSE 3: Urijah, you had your chance For one night of romance But you were too self-righteous For your own good So how can I be to blame In the city of my own name Where people sing songs of my fame For the “tens of thousands” I’ve killed? CHORUS: I wanna make love, not war I wanna make love, not war I wanna make love Not war

VERSE 1: Can You take me by the hand? Can You lead me down a road Into the "promised land" Where You swore that we would go? CHORUS: 'Cause I'm growing weary of all the things that You've said. You've promised milk and honey, but delivered dirty bread. I wanna drink Your water, but from a well instead Of a rock in a wilderness. VERSE 2: Won't You tell me what You know? Won't You show me there's a plan? 'Cause I don't wanna follow When I don't understand. CHORUS: And I'm growing weary of all the things that You've said. You've promised milk and honey, but delivered dirty bread. I wanna drink Your water, but from a well instead Of a rock in a wilderness. BRIDGE: And I don't wanna follow You around When all that You've shown me is fire and clouds I just need a decent meal And a god without a will Who understands the way I feel And ain't afraid to make deal. A god with nothing to conceal With gold or flesh or something real That I can see and touch and kill. CHORUS: Well I'm growing weary of All the things that I say You promised You would feed me And You've delivered everyday So why would I drink water any other way? So why would I drink water any other way? So why would I drink water any other way Than a rock in a wilderness?

VERSE 1: You give to me Extravagantly You meet my needs So faithfully PRE-CHORUS: And I am overwhelmed By Your grace I am overwhelmed By Your love I am overwhelmed In the face Of Your glory, poured out for me Of Your glory, poured out for me Of Your glory, poured out for me CHORUS: Like living water Like living water Like living water My living water VERSE 2: When I am dry You satisfy Spring of Life Love's sacrifice PRE-CHORUS: And I am overwhelmed By Your grace I am overwhelmed By Your love I am overwhelmed In the face Of Your glory, poured out for me Of Your glory, poured out for me Of Your glory, poured out for me CHORUS: Like living water Like living water Like living water My living water BRIDGE: When I am alone You comfort me When I am weary You give me peace When I am starving You prepare a feast When I am thirsty You are CHORUS: My Living Water My Living Water My Living Water My Living Water

Count Me Out 04:02
VERSE 1: Rome wasn't built in a day But You say the world was made in under a week When we're all dead and the will is read You know the earth is gonna go to the meek PRE-CHORUS: You can count me out Count me out Count me out Nobody takes from me VERSE 2: Well if a man slaps me across the face You say to turn to him the other cheek as well If he takes my coat, give him my shirt When all I wanna give that man is Hell PRE-CHORUS: So You can count me out Count me out Count me out Nobody takes from me CHORUS 1: Well I don't have to do what You do Just to be a good man But if You say that I do Then I've got to tell You I just don't understand CHORUS 2: Why You tell me What You tell me When everybody tells me Something different VERSE 3: You say there's no greater love than this A man who would lay down his life for a friend But if we all choose death until nobody's left Tell me what's the point of love in the end? PRE-CHORUS: So You can count me out Count me out Count me out Nobody takes from me CHORUS 1: Well I don't have to do what You do Just to be a good man But if You say that I do Then I've got to tell You I just don't understand CHORUS 2: Why You tell me What You tell me When everybody tells me Something different Why You tell me What You tell me When everybody tells me Something different Ya something different Something different Everybody tells me something different You tell me What You tell me But everybody tells me Something different

Stay With Me 05:20
VERSE 1: Oh my love, your eyes like doves Your skin so dark and so soft to touch. Come to the door. Leave your robe on the floor, And take my love and make it yours. CHORUS 1: Stay with me My beloved, love me And I'll make you feel lovely. Stay with me. Stay with me. VERSE 2: Oh my bride, why must you hide? I long for you to let me inside your room To lay you in bed, with my hand behind your head To let your hair fall down Like the finest of thread. CHORUS 1: Stay with me My beloved, love me And I'll make you feel lovely. Stay with me. Stay with me. BRIDGE: I wanna hear you speak. I wanna watch you sleep. I wanna feel you breathe. I wanna hear you speak. I wanna watch you sleep. I wanna feel you breathe. And I don't wanna leave. I don't wanna leave. I don't wanna leave. I don't wanna leave. I don't wanna leave. CHORUS 2: Lay with me. My beloved, make love with me And I'll make you feel lovely. Lay with me. Lay with me.
7.
VERSE 1: The road is long from Babylon To the place where I belong And I can't get there on my own As You already know CHORUS: I'm aching for Eden The place where You made peace I'm aching for Eden The place where You placed me And I can't believe that I ever walked away From where You walked with me All I can say is I'm aching for Eden VERSE 2: It's been so long since I've been home And I feel so alone These people just babble on all day long But they don't speak my native tongue CHORUS: I'm aching for Eden The place where You made peace I'm aching for Eden The place where You placed me And I can't believe that I ever walked away From where You walked with me All I can say is I'm aching for Eden
8.
In The End 04:37
VERSE 1: In the place where Herod placed his palace on the sea I saw the cleanest water that I've ever seen It was Caesarea blue, with hints of Roman green And I sat and thought about how things might be For a man in prison for a crime he did not commit Up on charges that simply don't exist As a favor to men that he used to trust At the mercy of the crooked, in the hands of the unjust If you want to know what it costs to help the poor Offer all you have and it'll cost more It'll cost more VERSE 2: In the Elah Valley, right out on the lawn I saw the place where the battles lines were drawn Where the Israelite army shook at the giant's taunts They just stood there convinced that all hope was gone Till along came Jesse's youngest son Talking about how the battle was already won He didn't take no armor, but he ran out brave And he took that giant down to his grave If you want to know how to kill a Philistine Send a shepherd boy in the place of a king With five stones and a sling BRIDGE: There is a way that seems right to me But in the end, it only leads to death VERSE 3: On the Mount of Olives, at the outskirts of town I sat in the garden where Jesus broke down He was pressed to bloody sweat at the temptation to run Till He prayed against His will, that the will of God be done If you want to know what it means to love the world...
9.
VERSE 1: Before color Before crime Before beauty Before time Before water Before wine Before the sun or moon or stars could shine CHORUS: There was You and You alone There was You and You alone There was You and You alone And You are Love VERSE 2: Before silence Before noise Before violence Before joy Before hunger Before pain Before self-sacrifice or selfish gain VERSE 3: Before sickness Before space Before sinful hearts Before grace Before sorrow Before shame Before the shallow charms of fame CHORUS: There was You and You alone There was You and You alone There was You and You alone And You are Love VERSE 4: Before anger Before hate Before sinners Before saints Before morning Before night Before anyone was wrong or right CHORUS: There was You and You alone There was You and You alone There was You and You alone And You are Love
10.
Keeper 04:15
VERSE 1: Tell me why You won't accept the gifts I give. You play favorites and call it "divine prerogative." VERSE 2: Tell me, when I just can't seem to make You smile, Why You blame me and act like You are justified. CHORUS: Am I my brother's keeper? Is he the garden I was made to tend? I thought You wanted blood on Your table. I can't be like him. I'm not Abel. VERSE 3: You knew sin was crouching like a demon at my door, But You did nothing, So what am I being punished for? BRIDGE: I can't help but wonder why You want me to wander when I wish You'd let me die. I'm determined to raise a town from this ground You've taken from me. I'll settle down again, You'll see. I'll settle down again, You'll see.

Hosea's Song 04:21
VERSE: Your love for me is like mist in the morning I take care of you, I meet every need But you leave me wanting Baby you, you give yourself away To any man able to pay But I love you more than what you're looking for So lover please, return to me BRIDGE: One day you'll see You'll come back to me And call me your man One day you'll see You'll come back to me And call me your husband And all the names of your other loves Will be erased, unspoken of And all the names of your other loves Will be erased, unspoken of Forevermore, forevermore Forevermore, forevermore 'Cause I love you still I love you still Leave me as you will I love you still
12.
VERSE: You and me We've got history It ain't no mystery No it's plain to see Cause it's rubbed into The dirt You used To build these hills Beneath my feet PRE-CHORUS: In the place where I now stand Where the shade at my right hand Came down in the flesh of a man To this holy, sacred, promised land CHORUS: The land, the land The land between the sea and the sunrise The land, the land From Beersheba to Dan Has opened my eyes, made me realize You had a plan in mind So perfectly designed The perfect place and time To leave the heavens behind And rescue me BRIDGE: In this dry and weary land I get no rest But Your living water can make a garden Out of this wilderness CHORUS: The land, the land The land between the sea and the sunrise The land, the land From Beersheba to Dan Has opened my eyes, made me realize You had a plan in mind So perfectly designed The perfect place and time To leave the heavens behind And rescue me
