================================================================================== =========== 2) artist: petra album: washes whiter than song: why should the father bother (chorus) why should the father bother to call us his children? why should the spirit hear it when we pray? why should the father bother to be concerned with all our needs? it's all because of what the son has done

once we were lost out on the ocean with no direction or devotion tossed about by every wind and wave now we are in the world, not of it, and we can surely rise above it because the lord has risen from the grave and we 'abba, 'abba, 'abba, cry, 'abba, father' father', 'abba, father' father', 'abba, father' father'

once were strangers from the promise we were doubters worse than thomas 'til the spirit opened up our eyes now he has offered us adoption and we have taken up the option to be his family eternally

================================================================================== =========== 3) artist: petra album: washes whiter than song: morning star every moment of every single day becomes a testimony to your saving grace thank you jesus for all you've done now the father can call me his son and the victory's been won (chorus) oh, i really love you oh, i really love you and i want to be where you are jesus, bright morning star oh, i really love you oh, i really love you and i want to be where you are jesus, bright morning star that sure salvation that i have gained from you has changed and rearranged all that i knew when i'm near you my heart's so strong i write the music, but you give the song let me sing along and now i want to give back to you what you gave to me and give the joy i'm offering all of my love and worship to you

================================================================================== ===========

4) artist: petra album: washes whiter than song: magic mirror (chorus) magic mirror don't let me walk away without seeing who i am magic mirror don't let me see who i am and only walk away i must have walked by you a thousand times before i never noticed you were hanging on my door but then you caught my eye and let me see myself my legs were running with my shoes nailed to the shelf when i saw you hanging there i had to stop and stare 'cause every time i see a little more of me sometimes i don't know who's been looking back at me if i'd look closer i know i would always see won't you reflect your light on me and i'll reflect on you let me really see just how i look to you when i act too tall, you bring me down to size and when i feel too small you show me all the lies i try to tell myself how can i thank you for all you've done for me? and now i'm watching and i see me grow in you i know that i've got so much growing left to do please keep me in your light from morning until night until i finally come into the image of the son

================================================================================== =========== 5) artist: petra album: washes whiter than song: mary's song hold that blanket closer mary dear all the world waits with you for your day but for now the wind is cold and it's drear and bethlehem's still so far away do you remember the way you felt back then? joy and wonder filled your soul and when the angel slipped away you knew your life would never be the same (chorus) and now you're travelling, travelling on a road to bethlehem wandering thoughts fly away if you knew the road that lay ahead of him would you break down and cry? your child is born to die feel that hand of strength upon your own a husband's love that guides along the way and as his understanding has grown, his hopes too are centered on that day

for do you remember the way he looked back then, pain and sorrow filled his eyes until when the angel came to say the savior's birth was meant to be this way think back on that promise you receieved for him in whom the prophets long believed now belongs to you, you've been chosen too but he's the one who's gonna shine we call his name jesus, immanuel he'll save his people from sin and hell and of his kingdom there will be no end

================================================================================== =========== 6) artist: petra album: washes whiter than song: yahweh love i hear music coming from heaven singing a new song in my direction i hear the melody, heavenly symphony feelings coming over me sets me spirit free i feel like i've been born all over again like a songbird in the canyon it echoes in my mind taking me farther from the memories of things i left behind and it's taken me so long to hear the music playing softly softly in my ear yahweh yahweh yahweh yahweh love, yahweh love, yahweh love love yahweh love, yahweh love, yahweh love, yahweh love love yahweh love, yahweh

i see a sign on every corner leading me astray i hear a thousand voices calling for me to walk away when i listen closely i can hear the music playing softly softly in my ear ================================================================================== =========== 7) artist: petra album: washes whiter than song: (couldn't find love) without you standing alone with my dreams and my plans but i cannot find love without you i'm feeling my way with my senses and discovering that i cannot find love, i cannot find love without you

(chorus) but i'm discovering your love is so strong that i believe what i knew all along love would not try to live on without you i can search high on a mountain so tall but i will not find love without you (not without you) or look for your love in my people who don't know you but i will not find love i cannot find love without you not without you without you there's no sun behind the rain without you there's no reason for the pain without you there's no love to help me live 'cause of you i believe that love is true because of you i can give to others too because i know that you gave the best you had to give you gave your sweet son so i could live

================================================================================== =========== 8) artist: petra album: washes whiter than song: taste and see if all you got is a fancy car and a precious diamond ring when you stand before the lord will it really mean a thing? you've got to see how good your life can be you've got to feel what's really, really real how can you know until you taste and see how good it is to be set free? taste and see that the lord is good he's got milk and honey for you come and dine at the master's table, he'll serve bread and wine to you well you tasted this and you tasted that but you still ain't satisfied you'll never find any peace of mind in those empty things you tried don't be afraid of tasting something new

your soul is hungry, nothing else will do the bread of life will keep you saitsfied you won't go hungry or ever be denied you've got to make up your mind and leave your old life behind you you know he'll take it away ================================================================================== =========== 9) artist: petra album: washes whiter than song: magic words say the magic words i won't say the magic words to please you 'cause you might decide to judge me by what i say to you and not what i do hide behind my words i won't hide behind my words carefully cause i'd rather let you see me for what i am and not what you hope that i'll be (chorus) "i want you to be free," jesus said that to me why should things that we say have to get in the way say the proper words i won't say the proper words to belong but i'll speak and then i'll listen and let jesus make the tie strong play the proper words i won't play the proper words like a game cause we'd better have in common a lot more than words to call the body our name why can't we deal in spirit not empty words and phrases that we've learned to recognize but barely understand designed to reassure us that if words are in their places than our hearts must be there too we really must understand whoa! that's not the way it should be say the magic words say the magic words don't say the magic words please don't say the magic words please don't please don't say the magic words

say the magic words say the magic words

================================================================================== =========== 10) artist: petra album: washes whiter than song: deep love (chorus) we need your deep love to keep us strong we need your truth to show us right from wrong we need your sweet peace to keep us calm we need your comfort to show us we belong to you sometimes we're like a river always running from our source but when we wonder why we're almost runnin' dry you restore us and return us to our course sometimes we get so desperate straying further from the fold but when it seems that we're losing all our dreams there's a shepherd with a loving hand to hold forgive us lord for thinking we can make it without you in this world we're so foolish sometimes we're like a fortress with our walls built all around but then your love comes shining down from above and we stand and watch our walls come tumbling down
