Lyrics:

Chorus 1:
Give and it will be given to you
Give and it will be given to you
Give and it will be given to you (give and it will be given)
Give and it will be given to you (give and it will be given)
Give and it will be given to you (give and it will be given) (give and it will be given)
Give and it will be given to you (give and it will be given)
Give and it will be given to you (give and it will be given) (give and it will be given)
Give and it will be given to you (give and it will be given)
Give and it will be given to you (give and it will be given) (give and it will be given) (give it)
Give and it will be given to you (give and it will be given) (give it)
Give and it will be given to you (give and it will be given) (give and it will be given) (give it)
Give and it will be given to you (give and it will be given) (give it)

Oh, when you feel like this old world (give it, give it)
It takes more than it deserves (give it)
And you know it always will (give and it will be given to you) (give and it will be given)
'Cause when your heart is black and blue (give it, give it)
There's not much left of you to lose (give it)
And you long to be fulfilled- yes, you do (give and it will be given to you) (give and it will be given)
Just take advice from the One who set you free (give it, give it, give, give it, give it, give) (listen to Jesus)
He held the world in His hand, yet He died for me (give it, give it, give)
We need to learn to live our lives so unselfishly (give it, give it, give, give it) (we learn to live)
If we give all that we have, we will receive more than we need

Chorus 2:
Give and it will be given to you (give and it will be given) (give and it will be given)
Give and it will be given to you (give and it will be given)
Give and it will be given to you (give and it will be given) (give and it will be given)
Give and it will be given to you (give and it will be given)
Give and it will be given to you (give and it will be given) (give and it will be given) (give) (give it)
Give and it will be given to you (give and it will be given) (give it)
Give and it will be given to you (give and it will be given) (give and it will be given) (give) (give it, give it)
Give and it will be given to you (give and it will be given) (give it)

I've found this world's a mess (give it, give it)
Of greed and selfishness (give it, give it)
On a mission to obtain (give and it will be given to you) (give and it will be given)
'Cause when the love in life goes lost (give it, give it)
With all the price tags and the cost (give it, give it)
We'll realize it's all in vain (give and it will be given to you) (give and it will be given)
Open hearts are the only ones that grown (give it, give it, give, give it, give it, give) (listen to Jesus)
Don't you know (give it, give it, give, give it)
He will bless the harvest of the seeds we sow
What we give is worth so much more than (give it, give it, give, give it, give it, give)
What we have to show (give it, give it, give, give it) (we learn to live)
If we give it all, He'll bless us more than we will ever know (ever know), ever know

Chorus 3:
Give and it will be given to you (give it, give it)
Give and it will be given to you (give it, give it) (more than we will ever know)
Give and it will be given to you (give and it will be given) (give and it will be given) (give it, give it)
Give and it will be given to you (give and it will be given) (give it, give it)
Give and it will be given to you (give and it will be given) (give and it will be given) (give it, give it)
(Well, you know he's gonna bless you)
Give and it will be given to you (give it, give it)

Now don't take my word if you aren't a believer (give and it will be given to you) (give and it will be given)
'Cause it doesn't start with me, you see (give and it will be given to you) (give and it will be given)
I've got the low down, all I ever wanted to know (give and it will be given to you) (give and it will be given)
'Cause the bible tells me so (give and it will be given to you) (give and it will be given)

A good measure pressed down
Shaken together, running over
Will be poured into your lap
Will be poured into your lap
A good measure pressed down
Shaken together, running over
Will be poured into your lap
Will be poured into your lap

For with the meaure you use
It will be measured to you

Scriptural Reference:

"Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you."  Luke 6:38

We Have Come

Lead: Jeremy Swindle
Sample: Windows Media

Lyrics:

Chorus:
Yes, we have come to share with you
The wonders of His love
And we have come to share with you
The glories from above
And it may not be just what you thought you'd hear
So we'll try so hard to make it very clear
That we have come to sing for you
And fellowship with friends
And we have come to give to you
A joy that never ends
Though it may not be received by everyone (come on ya'll you got us here us through)
Won't you listen to the story of the Son

Bridge:
Jesus came to earth (Jesus)
Gave His life for humanity (Know He gave his life)
Jesus crucified (Jesus crucified)
Gave His all so we'd hear His call and the best of all we'd be free

Freedom, sing about freedom (freedom, freedom)
Oh in Jesus, sing about Jesus, Jesus Christ (Jesus)
Freedom, sing about freedom (freedom, freedom)
Oh in Jesus, sing about Jesus, Jesus Christ (Jesus)

Repeat All

Lead: Chris Lindsey and Chad Bahr (Pre-Chorus)
Sample: Windows Media

Lyrics:

One time down on my knees
One time down on my face will let me see
How weak I truly am
Oh how I need You now
I'm begging please

Pre-Chorus:
How can I tell You what I'm thinking
How can I show You my heart
How can I share what I'm feeling
Now that my world's torn apart

Chorus:
How can I say? (How can I say?) How can I show? (How can I show?)
Love from my eyes should tell my story
How can I say? (How can I say?) How can I show? (How can I show?)
How can I show you that I care?
How can I show You that...

When the grip of pain
You feel my love refrain
From showing You what's inside (what's in my heart, what's in my heart)
I wonder how I fell
Was doing well, but You have broken my pride (silenced my pride)

Repeat Pre-Chorus

Repeat Chorus

Bridge:
And if I never told You would You hear and understand?
And if I never showed You would You smile and take my hand?

I care

Worlds Apart

Words and music: Melissa Lancaster and Jeremy Swindle 1999 Anthony K. Music (ASCAP)
Lead: Jeremy Swindle

Lyrics:

What will it take to change your ways
When you do the things you do
I am at a loss for words
Everytime I talk to you
You are always in my prayers
Tell me what else I can do

I think of a lot of former days
Wish I could do it all again
Maybe I could have helped you out
I should have been the one to show you Him
I don't know what else to say
This fading world of yours must end (tell me, tell me)

Chorus:
Tell me please what you can't see (tell me please what you can not)
The Savior hung there just for you and me (Savior hung there just for you and me)

This world we know is fading fast
Make the choice to do what's right
My Father, He can help you out
He'll give you strength to win the fight
I guarantee you will succeed
But only if it's with His might (c'mon, c'mon just listen to me)

Where do you run to for your peace
When your dreams all start to shatter
When your life gets torn apart
Broken pieces start to scatter
He will help you put it back
'Cause to Him you always matter (tell me, tell me)

Repeat Chorus

And even though I know we're worlds apart
I'll try to share the feelings from my heart
Just call for Him and He will draw you near
Take his hand - my God, He'll take away your fears

What will it take to change your ways
When you do the things you do
I am at a loss for words
Now every time I talk to you
You are always in my prayers
Tell me what else can I do

What else can I do?
Tell me what else can I do?

Scriptural Reference:

"Therefore this is what the LORD Almighty says: 'See, I will refine and test them, for what else can I do because of the sin of my people?'"  Jeremiah 9:7
"What can I do with you, Ephraim? What can I do with you, Judah? Your love is like the morning mist, like the early dew that disappears."  Hosea 6:4
"God, whom I serve with my whole heart in preaching the gospel of his Son, is my witness how constantly I remember you in my prayers at all times; and I pray that now at last by God's will the way may be opened for me to come to you."  Romans 1:9-10

He Had Everything

Words and music: Keith Lancaster 1999 Anthony K. Music (ASCAP)
Lead: Chad Bahr

Lyrics:

Chorus:
He had everything (everything he wanted) (yes he had it all), everything that he dreamed (that he dreamed) (all he dreamed)
He had everything (everything he wanted) (yes he had it all), all he wanted it seemed (that he wanted) (all it seemed)
But the more he had and the more he learned
There was something not there
To fill the void within him, Oh where - Oh where

Everything he gathered he had made by himself
Or so he always had believed
Self-reliant living always brought him success
Just consider all he had achieved
But the clock was running out on going his way
Placing all his hopes upon his wealth
Sooner than later he would come face to face
No man can live unto himself (unto himself)

Repeat Chorus

Everything he touched it seemed would turn into gold
Or at least it always did appear
As his heart was slowing down and growing so cold
Finding satisfaction no where near
Then his body lost its way, began to shut down
Leaving him with nothing to control
Abruptly showing him with nothing to live for
And now nothing within his soul (in his soul)

Repeat Chorus

(Everything he wanted, that he dreamed)

Scriptural Reference:

"People who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge men into ruin and destruction.  For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs."  1 Timothy 6:9-10

Don't lose heart

Lyrics:

When I forget, When I forget, When I forget, When I forget

When I forget, When I forget, When I forget, When I forget (when I forget all the things and everyday)
(repeat through first stanza of each verse except the last)

When I forget to say thank You
For blessing me every day
For all my friends and for my family
For loved ones that come my way
When I forget to say thank You (when I say thank You, thank You)
Could you find room to say? (Find room to say, I love You)
I'm still in love with you
I'll be your Father any way

When I forget to say I'm sorry
For teh careless ways that I neglect
For all my inconsistent lifestyles
For the thinking that I reflect
When I forget to say I'm so sorry Jesus (when I say sorry, I'm sorry)
Could You find room to say? (find room to say, I love You)
I'll still forgive you
And be your Shelter any way

When I forget, When I forget, When I forget, When I forget (when I forget all the things and everyday)
(when I forget, when I forget)
When I forget, When I forget, When I forget, When I forget (when I forget all the things and everyday)
(when I forget)

When I forget to say I love You, I love You
When Your love is hard to miss
When You've all but been forsaken
Can You love me even after this?
When I forget to say I love You (when I say I love You, I love You)
Could You find room to say? (find room to say, I love You)
I'll hold and cradle, I'll cradle you
And be your Daddy any way

When I forget, When I forget, When I forget, When I forget (when I forget all the things and everyday)
(when I forget, when I forget You Lord)
When I forget, When I forget, When I forget, When I forget (when I forget all the things and everyday)
(oh Lord, oh Jesus, please forgive)

When I forget to say thank You
For blessing me every day
Lord, thank You...

When I forget to say glory
To the Lord of all my soul (when I forget, when I forgot)
(To the God...) To the God of all creation (to the God, to the God)
To the Master of it all (when I forget, when I forgot)
When I forget to say glory (when I say glory, glory)
Could You find room in your heart? (find room to say, I love you)
To say that all of this has been for me (that this has been for me)
Right from the start

Lead: Tony Brown

Made it very clear though the struggles persist

We have found the way, we have found the way
We have found the way to glory
Jesus is the way, Jesus is the way

Everything we see on this earth is fleeting
What we cannot see is what is real

Lyrics:

We will not serve your god
Jehovah is our King

Chorus:
We will not serve your god (We will not serve your god)
We won't bow down before your image
We will not serve your god (We will not bow)
Jehovah is our King!

Nebuchadnezzer had built him an idol of gold- It was 90 feet high (and it was 9 feet wide)
He gave the order that everyone fall down and worship- Or else they would die
(Shadrach, Meshach) Shadrach, Meshach, and Abendego (would not bow down)
Would not bow down they just firmly said no!

Repeat Chorus

Furnace a blazin' the king was a ragin' with men who he wanted to die (he had them bound)
Making them fodder he turned it up hotter to kill them- He cranked it up high
(Thrown in the fire) Thrown in the fire to have them torched
No one hurt they were not even scorched (were not even scorched)

Repeat Chorus

So many idols and evil directions are give to us in our day (yes, every day) (so many idols are given)
We make decisions that alter our pathways  forever - defining our way (we make decisions forever)
(Satan is crafty) Satan is crafty in selling sin (we won't give in)
We won't be taken, no we won't give in (won't give in)

God is able to deliver us
No matter how hot the fire is raging
But even if He does not deliver us
We won't bow down in a million - million years

Repeat Chorus (without stepouts)

Repeat Chorus

Jehovah is our King
Jehovah is our King (our King)

Scriptural Reference:

"King Nebuchadnezzar made an image of gold, ninety feet high and nine feet wide, and set it up on the plain of Dura in the province of Babylon . . . Then the herald loudly proclaimed, 'This is what you are commanded to do, O peoples, nations and men of every language: As soon as you hear the sound of the horn, flute, zither, lyre, harp, pipes and all kinds of music, you must fall down and worship the image of gold that King Nebuchadnezzar has set up. Whoever does not fall down and worship will immediately be thrown into a blazing furnace' . . . 'But there are some Jews whom you have set over the affairs of the province of Babylon--Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego--who pay no attention to you, O king. They neither serve your gods nor worship the image of gold you have set up.' Furious with rage, Nebuchadnezzar summoned Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego. So these men were brought before the king . . . Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego replied to the king, 'O Nebuchadnezzar, we do not need to defend ourselves before you in this matter.  If we are thrown into the blazing furnace, the God we serve is able to save us from it, and he will rescue us from your hand, O king.  But even if he does not, we want you to know, O king, that we will not serve your gods or worship the image of gold you have set up.'  Then Nebuchadnezzar was furious with Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, and his attitude toward them changed. He ordered the furnace heated seven times hotter than usual and commanded some of the strongest soldiers in his army to tie up Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego and throw them into the blazing furnace . . . They saw that the fire had not harmed their bodies, nor was a hair of their heads singed; their robes were not scorched, and there was no smell of fire on them."  Daniel 3:1,4-6,12-13,16-20,27
