THE QUEST

Every child of God, searching for the truth One day will begin The Quest. Im searching for direction, and ready to pursue Wisdom to face my test.

Chorus I will search, I will pray Travel this road of faith I will reach for the truth And go where it leads me to And I will not rest, Ill never give up on The Quest.

A beacon shines its light, into every life Reaching out to bring us home. I see my destination, and one day will arrive And find the truth Ive always known.

Repeat Chorus

The road has not been easy, Ive come a long, long way But this journey has not ended, So until that day...

Repeat Chorus

IN YOUR NAME

In your name this whole world came to be, And by your hand you dried the land and set Israel free. Every hour heavens power falls on man, Given to the chosen who will follow your command.

Chorus: There is no foe too large for me to face And if you ask, I know that theres a way I will not fear, you sent me here, And thats where Ill remain With power in your name.

Make of me anything that you need, I will go, whatever size the enemy. Place me at the battles front, sword held high, Ill show my faith, and run the race with you by my side.

Repeat Chorus Twice

THE LORD LOOKS ON THE HEART


If one looked on the outside, what would he see? Something far from what I am trying to be So rough around the edges, still trying to get it right But thats a situation I may live with all my life Theres someone on the inside that waits to be set free Someone great I know I was always meant to be I know my day is coming, when Ill blossom as the rose But when it comes and how it comes, heaven only knows Heaven knows Chorus I know theres something meant for me And in my heart I do believe Theres so much more to who we really are I know somewhere my destiny is written in the stars While the world looks on the outside, I know The Lord looks on the heart Theres One who is on my side, with me all the way And because of him I know I grow stronger every day He sees not who I am now, but who I can become He gives me hope, he gives me strength to hold on till He comes Till He comes Repeat Chorus

STILL WAITING
Somethings wrong with this picture Ive watched the images fade Things I once believed were black and white Are suddenly grey. I cant hide what Im feeling Whats the purpose of my faith If the good are made to suffer While the wicked walk away Chorus: They say choose the right and you will walk With heaven watching over Take your side and you will never fear Surrounded by my questions, Im still waiting for an answer And something tells me I wont find it here I dont need this... If there truly is a heaven And were not simply left to fate Wheres the justice for my brother? Wheres the mercy for my pain? Chorus: They say choose the right and you will walk With heaven watching over Take your side and you will never fear Surrounded by my questions, Im still waiting for an answer And something tells me I wont find it here I dont need this... No I dont need this anymore

CHILDREN OF THE LIGHT


1 Thessalonians 5:4-9 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that the day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness... But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation. For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ.. No more denying what we know is right No more ignoring the call Hes made to you and I The choice is placed before us, we have but to decide Hes looking for the Children of the Light No more in darkness, night has turned to day No more in weakness, all our fears are swept away He will lead and guide us, will we be at His side? Hes looking for the Children of the Light Chorus He is looking for His children who are ready to be strong The time has come to choose whos side were on A fire burns within us, and if we hold it high Then we will be the Children of the Light No more as strangers, He will call us friends Dressed in the armor of faith and love, we will defend All our fathers stood for, prepare to join the fight Hes ready for the Children of the Light Repeat Chorus Could He have saved us for this day? Preparing for when He comes, were we the chosen ones? Repeat Chorus Yes we will be the Children of the Light

SOMETHING WONDERFUL
Its so incredible, after all of my searching, all of my longing Ive finally found where I belong, Where I know Im truly meant to be. If you could only see me now Everythings changed, its like the darkness has lifted, And Ive been led into a bright new day. On my own, full of fear Almost washed away With all my heart I prayed Then I reached out my hand, now

Chorus Something wonderful is happening to me The daylight is brighter than I ever thought it could be, and Something powerful touches all things that I see No longer afraid, I can finally say I believe Something wonderfuls happening to me

I will take a step forward, and never look back Letting my heart lead the way Sure of myself, always knowing that I would find My place, someday

Repeat Chorus Something powerful, incredible, Wonderfuls happening to me.

A HAND TO HOLD
Empty, seeking to find Comfort; peace for your soul Questions troubled your mind Not knowing which way to go You were searching for a hand to hold Sometimes lost and afraid When cruel winds started to blow Not easy finding your way Drifting without a goal You were reaching for a hand to hold Chorus Child, youve been searching Ever yearning for your home Calling the one who made you For him to take you from the cold You were searching for a hand to hold Left with only a prayer Believing you were alone Angels must have been there Placing your feet on the road You were waiting for a hand to hold And given the time, I knew you would find where you know you belong Repeat Chorus He will guide you, stay beside you, Go before you, and bear your load Consider all hes given And thats the reason you can know You will always have a hand to hold Child, He wants us to know We will always have a hand to hold.

BROKEN
What have I done? Can it be? I have fallen, Fallen so easily. I bow my head, Under the weight, of my burden. Or is it to hide my face? Help me, my heart is broken, My eyes wide open to what Ive done. My heart is broken. Drowning in shame, There is no peace for my spirit. Have I fallen beyond Your reach? I cannot undo this trail of grief, left in ruins. What will become of me? Help me, my heart is broken, My eyes wide open to what Ive done. So helpless, I kneel before Thee and pray that mercy can overcome. My heart is broken... ... Broken

SWEET MERCY
There was a time, when I was younger My faith, my hope in God could not be stronger He had given me a life of promise Somehow I threw it all away I knew the pain, I felt the sorrow A million tears of shame fell on my pillow Oh how my heart cried out to be forgiven Somehow my humbled words found their way to heaven Chorus: Sweet mercy now surrounds me Sweet mercy has finally found me I know I will live, knowing He will give His sweet mercy to me He lifted me out of the darkness He made a stronger soul out of my weakness He worked a miracle with my spirit Ill sing my song of joy, so the world will hear it Repeat Chorus With all Ive done, how could He forgive? But He wants me to just look up and live Repeat Chorus
