Break the barriers

Where is God, and where are you? - if you're apart He's waiting for you
Yes God's at hand, His love is real, where do you stand? how do you feel?
You should let your senses feel His love, let His love wash over you
Yield to Him and you will learn that being loved, loving in return,
Breaks the barriers down

Where are you and where am I? - God's love can make our hearts unite
For in His hands our love is real - where do we stand?, how do we feel?
We should let our senses feel His love, let His love wash over us
Yield to Him and we will learn that being loved, loving in return,
Breaks the barriers down

Fights and wars in earth and space are threatening the human race
But God's at hand, His love is real - where do we stand?, how do we feel?
All the nations need His love - kings and queens, dictators too
Need to yield to Him and learn that being loved, loving in return,
Breaks the barriers down

You should let your senses feel His love, let Him start right now with you
Yield to Him and you will learn that being loved, loving in return,
Breaks the barriers down

Oblivion

Here's a man coming down the road, walking weary with a heavy load
Hey mister how do you do, do you mind revealing where you're going to?
I'm travelling on the road of life, fulfilling my desires, doing what I like
But there's just one thing I can't quite figure
Why this guilt load keeps getting bigger
And I'm travelling, travelling to oblivion

Here's a lady coming into view - 'hey sister where're you going to
I can see a teardrop in your eye, I'm so glad I saw you passing by'
'Don't talk to me', she says with sorrow, 'I'll never trust another for tomorrow
The road of life is hard and long, don't talk to me about right and wrong
And I'm travelling, travelling to oblivion'

Here's a man coming into sight, his face is shining and his burden's light
'Hey friend where're you going to, do you mind if I walk with you'
'I'm travelling', he says, 'to see the Son, you're more than welcome to come along
If you trust in Him you'll find he'll never let you down, He'll keep you safe for ever
I'm travelling, travelling to meet the One who has saved me from oblivion

I'm travelling to meet the One
Who has saved me from oblivion'

Ready

Are you ready for the storms of life?
Is your armour on, are you ready to fight?
Do you come prepared for the judgement day
When Jesus returns and takes His loved ones away - are you ready?

Are you ready? - is your lamp alight?
And do you have enough oil to burn right through the night?
When the Bridegroom comes will He let you in
To walk and talk and sup with Him - are you ready?

Are you ready? - do you feel a pain
When you see others who don't trust in His name
Are you eager to tell what you know -
And introduce them to Jesus who loves them so? - are you ready?

Help me Lord to be prepared
By reading your word and showing your care
And demonstrating to all around
The Love I know, and the Joy I've found - keep me ready.

The wounds which separate

Deep divisions wound Me, and differences they scar
Of the joy I have for you, you're falling short by far
My body will grow stronger when those who hesitate
Will let my Spirit heal them from the wounds which separate

Let my Spirit heal you, please don't wait
Just let my Spirit heal you from the wounds which separate.

Superficial talking brings superficial smiles
The pressures we are feeling are hidden all the while
For though we say we're sharing when meeting face to face
The masks that we are wearing are bars which separate

Let my Spirit ...

Agape is loving that's real and deep and true
Completely unconditional, offered to me and you
If we can just accept it a change will then take place
We'll know the Spirit's healing from the wounds which separate

Let my Spirit ...

Come to me

I'm sitting here just thinking, thinking about my Lord
Letting my mind just drink in the wonder of His word when He says 'Come to Me'

I'm thinking 'bout how Jesus on the shores of Galilee
Said to all the people 'Won't you come to Me'

I'm thinking 'bout the disciples like Peter, James and John
Going about their lives when Jesus said to them 'Come on, won't you come to Me'

Jesus is the One who died, who died to set me free
And every day that passes by I feel Him changing me when He says 'Come to Me'

I'm thinking 'bout forgiveness, well that's one thing that I need
I can hear my Jesus softly saying 'It's yours for free if you come to Me'

I'm thinking now about loving - it's the greatest thing of all
And I'm thanking Him that I found it just by listening to His call when He said 'Come to Me'

Jesus is the One who died, who died to set me free
And every day that passes by I feel Him changing me when He says 'Come to Me'

Solid ground

Low, I was low, I was way down low, I had nowhere else to go
I cried 'Lord, where can you be, are you listening Lord or are you ignoring me?'
I was right deep down at the bottom of the sea
Despair and fear they covered me
Low, I was way down low.

Pain, I felt such pain, you know I never want to feel such pain again
I cried 'Lord, where can you be, are you listening Lord or are you ignoring me?'
I was right deep down at the bottom of the sea
With hurt and pain engulfing me
Pain, I felt such pain.

Then my God said 'You spoke too soon, I am not ignoring you
I am here, oh can't you see that this suffering is a time that had to be?'
Then right deep down at the bottom of the sea
He reached out his hand took hold of me
He heard my cry and calmed my fears, took me in his arms and wiped my tears
He held me high and set me down, and there I stood on solid ground
Solid ground, solid ground, that's what I found
He put my feet on solid ground

What a friend we have in Jesus, all our sins and griefs to bear
What a privilege to carry everything to God in prayer
Oh what peace we often forfeit, oh what needless pain we bear
All because we do not carry everything to God in prayer

Yes right deep down at the bottom of the sea
He reached out his hand took hold of me
He heard my cry and calmed my fears, took me in his arms and wiped my tears
He held me high and set me down, and there I stood on solid ground
Solid ground, solid ground, that's what I found
He put my feet on solid ground

Praise Him

Safe from harm

Whoever goes to the Lord for safety
Can say to Him
You're my defender and you're my protector
I'm covered by your wings
For even though there may be danger there
You will be safe within His care
For you have made the Lord God your protector
You're safe from harm

The time has come

The time has come, and what is past is done
The time is nigh, no need for questions why
What is past is done, now the time has come
You're going to meet the Son, for the time has come

The time is now for Him to show you how
He wants to be beside you constantly
Satan's on the run, for the time has come
You're going to meet the Son, for the time has come

The past is gone, what happened then is done
Start life anew with Jesus guiding you
The victory's been won, it's time to meet the Son
You're going to meet the Son, for the time has come

Eye witness evidence

In a court of law people tell what they saw
If the same's seen by a few it's taken to be try
Eye witness evidence, you know it makes sense
Eye witness evidence.

Did Jesus really die? - the soldiers standing by
Confirmed that He had died by being crucified
Eye witness evidence, you know it makes sense
Eye witness evidence.

The stone was fixed and sealed, yet it seems quite unreal
For its been rolled away, and in the light of day
Though many look around, His body can't be found
Eye witness evidence

For Jesus came to save, so rose up from the grave
How could He save while dead? - remember He had said
That He would rise again and then be seen by men
Eye witness evidence

How many need to see Him before all men believe Him?
For I have often wondered why
Although some five hundred saw Jesus after that
Some still deny the fact
How many need to see Him before all men believe Him?
Eye witness evidence

Everlasting love

We're loved with everlasting love, a love which never ends
You're loving makes us rise above the temporary things
Eternal Father dear we know that you are here
The pure unchanging One whom we depend upon

And with your everlasting love surround us as we pray
Fill us with everlasting love for all you are today
Eternal Saviour dear we know that you are here
The Father's only Son, the pure and holy one

Hearts full of everlasting love, a gift that's free to all
Oh Spirit fill us with that love that conquers over all
Eternal Spirit dear we know that you are here
The path from us to heaven is by your presence given

We're loved with everlasting love, a love which never ends
You're loving makes us rise above the temporary things
Eternal Father dear we know that you are here
The pure unchanging One whom we depend upon
Eternal Saviour dear we know that you are here
The Father's only Son, the pure and holy One
Eternal Spirit dear we know that you are here
The path from us to heaven is by your presence given

We're loved with everlasting love, everlasting love
We're loved with everlasting love, a love which never ends, no no
We're loved with everlasting love, everlasting love

Never will see Him

Is your mind filled up with questions about who you are, and why?
Do you feel that nothing anyhow will ever satisfy?
Well God is your creator and He longs for you to know
That He's the One who made you, and He really loves you so

God made you and you're special, you're a one-off specimen
So carefully created by God up there in heaven
But right deep down inside you are weaknesses and sin
And if you never get convinced you never will see Him

Let me introduce the Person who is a Friend indeed
God's very own Son Jesus - He's the answer to your need
For God His Father sent Him, and if you believe in Him
You'll become a one who knows the One who made every living thing - including you

Spiritual

Lord I'm not spiritual, like other men are
But the feeling's almost physical that you're there
I know that you are
Though I know that I'm not spiritual like other men are

I know some people read your word all through the day and the night
I must confess here Lord this isn't me
Though I'm sure that they're right
Please forgive me as I come to you, how I love being near
Knowing I am weak but you are strong melts away all my fear
Though I know that I'm not spiritual like other men are

Now I don't claim I'm theological - heavy exposition's far beyond me
But deep down in my heart I know you have planted a seed
And day by day you'll come and water it 'til it grows to a tree
A tree that represents your kingdom Lord that is living in me
Though I know that I'm not spiritual like other men are

And as I contemplate your greatness Lord
I feel worthless and small
And as I think about your righteousness
I'm worth nothing at all
I know that I'm not spiritual
But it seems Lord to me
Experiencing your presence here like this
Is how you meant it to be
I know that I'm not spiritual (x 4)
But I know, I know that you love me

Let me be a channel

Lord Jesus, you can do all things
You can do all things through those who trust in you
Let me be a channel, let me be a channel for all you want to do
Let your spirit work through me, let your spirit work through me
Please help me trust in you
I am but nothing, I am but nothing but you can fill me through

For I have a cold dark heart, there's few as dark as mine
But even I can make a start to let your love light shine

Lord Jesus let your spirit work through me, let your spirit work through me
Please help me trust in you
I am but nothing, I am but nothing but you can fill me through

For I have a cold dark heart, there's few as dark as mine
But even I can make a start to let your love light shine

Lord Jesus let me be a channel, let me be a channel for all you want to do
Let your spirit work through me, let your spirit work through me
Please help me trust in you
For I am but nothing, I am but nothing but you can fill me through
You can do all things, you can do all things so help me trust in you
For I am but nothing, but you can do all things
So help me, help me trust in you

Let me be a channel
Let your spirit work through me
Help me, help me trust in you
Let me be a channel
Let your spirit work through me
Help me, help me trust in you
