Verse 1 Lord I’ve been asking, where to now from here Lord I’ve been hoping, that the days ahead are filled with joy and laughter Lord I’ve been praying, but the answers are far from clear Chorus You will come, You will save You’ll send Your peace and make my days Like a tree nourished by the power of the sun Lord, You will come Verse 2 Lord I am waiting, I want to hear Your call Lord I am moving, like a ship I am hoping You will fill my sails, make them full Lord I am wondering, if I hear anything at all Chorus You will come, You will save You’ll send Your peace and make my days Like a tree nourished by the power of the sun Lord, You will come Bridge I’m on my knees, on my knees, hoping down on my knees I’m on my knees, on my knees, waiting down on my knees Chorus You will come, You will save You’ll send Your peace and make my days Like a tree nourished by the power of the sun Lord, You will come Tag Like a tree nourished by the power of the sun Lord, You will come © 2009 Thomas A.

Anna's Song 03:31
Verse 1 Tainted is the world we’re in All the beauty somewhat washed away by the devious sin Interlude Sad to see the world this way Verse 2 Many here who are quiet and lost Many loved both friends and kin They don’t know who paid the cost To cleanse them all from within Chorus Sad to see the world this way When we know of His glory shown In the coming glorious day When we see our king on the throne Sad to see the world this way Verse 2 Many here who are quiet and lost Many loved both friends and kin They don’t know who paid the cost To cleanse them all from within Chorus Sad to see the world this way When we know of his glory shown In the coming glorious day When we see our king on the throne Sad to see the world this way Tag There is one who knows There is one who cares There is one who chose There is one who dares To take your place © 2007 Anna M.

Verse 1 Standing at the edge of this canyon Feeling like I'm two feet tall Have to admit that I'm wonderin' If my life is worth anything at all Verse 2 Standing at the edge of this ocean Waves crashing down on the shore Every thought wrestling for attention Is drowned out by this magnificent roar Chorus Deepest of oceans, highest of heavens You are much bigger than the whole of Your creation The smallest sparrow to the ground will not fall You look on me with grace and affection and say I'm not small at all Verse 3 Gazing up into the heavens The sun, the moon, and countless stars With a single breath put them into place With another could blow them away Chorus Deepest of oceans, highest of heavens You are much bigger than the whole of Your creation The smallest sparrow to the ground will not fall You look on me with grace and affection and say I'm not small at all © 2010 Thomas A.

No Alibi 02:32
Verse 1 I can't forget about what I see when I look in the mirror I can't forget about the darkness within, couldn't get any clearer Pre-Chorus 1 This sin-stained life Look in His eyes Can't live this lie No Alibi Chorus His life, it's just not fair For mine, my lies, my life have earned despair His life, I wonder why For mine, I'm glad I have no alibi Verse 2 I can't forget about what He did on the hill known as Calvary I can't forget, it's as simple as this, took my place and set me free Pre-Chorus 2 His perfect life In exchange for mine It's finally time No alibi Chorus His life, it's just not fair For mine, my lies, my life have earned despair His life, I wonder why For mine, I'm glad I have no alibi © 2009 Thomas A.

O Holy Night 04:41
Verse 1 O Holy Night! (O Holy Night!), O Holy Night! The stars are brightly shining It is the night (it is the night), It is the night of the dear Saviour's birth Chorus 1 Long lay the world in sin and error pining Till He appeared and the soul felt its worth, O Holy Night! Verse 1 A thrill of hope (a thrill of hope), a thrill of hope the weary world rejoices For yonder breaks (for yonder breaks), for yonder breaks a new and glorious morn Chorus 2 Fall on your knees! Oh, hear the angel voices! O night divine, O night when Christ was born, O Holy Night! Bridge O Holy Night! O Holy Night! O Holy Night! O night divine Chorus 3 His law is love and His gospel is peace And in his name all oppression shall cease, O Holy Night! Bridge O Holy Night! O Holy Night! O Holy Night! O night divine Lyrics: Placide Cappeau de Roquemaure (Public Domain)

Verse 1 One solitary life, alone upon that road You gladly bore the shame You took the scorn, You took the mocking You did not resist the pain Pre-Chorus It looked like a bitter end But then, You rose again You rose again Verse 2 Your bitter death, how can I contain the wonder How nails can make one whole And when it all was over You saved my broken soul Chorus You rose again, You rose again You rose again, You rose again Lord For tribe, for tongue, for nation Fulfilled redemption's plan For ere the whole of creation You rose again, You rose again Bridge The pain I know is nothing Like the pain You bore for me When the cross You humbly carried When You died upon that tree The earth we know is groaning It waits on bended knee It looks to the Savior Sovereign And wants to be set free Chorus You rose again, You rose again You rose again, You rose again Tag You rose again, You rose again You rose again, You rose again You rose again You rose again, You rose again © 2010 Thomas A.

I'm Gone 02:56
Verse 1 Another day, another dollar You call that living out loud? What color is your collar? Most likely something you’ll write home and tell your mom about Chorus I’m gone I’m gone Don’t try to convince me I’m the one in the wrong I’m gone Verse 2 Another word of wisdom Is this all you’ve got to say? Just get out there you gotta get some Surely you know one way or ‘nother I’ll pay, so Chorus I’m gone I’m gone I’m gone I’m gone Bridge It’s not that working is cheap Or life in general is insignificant It’s just I don’t want to be consumed in a World where pleasure and profit is king, so Chorus I’m gone I’m gone I’m gone I’m gone Don’t try to convince me I’m the one in the wrong I’m gone Lyrics by: Thomas A. Hirschler

Verse 1 Black holes, my eyes, body on the way I’m guessing as the time flies, nothing quite like the heyday Verse 2 Lucky souls, sleeping, why am I this way? Looking in another room, sleeping like a baby Chorus Just wondering why, just wondering why Until I find my rest in You, seeking finding certain breath I’ll be racing, throttle full, not my name but Yours be blessed Verse 3 Trembling will you fly? Only time has wings Sleep carry me away, question notwithstanding Verse 4 Quiet hours, sighing, won’t you say good night? Second hand, unwinding, [Racing, racing throttle full] sighing now I’m crying [not my name but Yours be blessed] [Trembling will you fly? Only time has wings Sleep carry me away, question notwithstanding] [Quiet hours, sighing, won’t you say good night? Second hand, unwinding, sighing now I’m crying (laughter)] [Is it for an aged offense, I reap now what I’ve sown? Maybe Oz, no picket fence, when rather I’d be home?] Bridge Is it for an aged offense, I reap now what I’ve sown? Maybe Oz, no picket fence, when rather I’d be home? Chorus Just wondering why, just wondering why Until I find my rest in You, seeking finding certain breath I’ll be racing, throttle full, not my name but Yours be blessed [Is it for an aged offense, I reap now what I’ve sown? Maybe Oz, no picket fence, when rather I’d be home?] Lyrics by: Thomas A. Hirschler

Let It Fall 04:27
Verse 1 The voice of God, it quietly calls The farmer’s rain, it gently falls Chorus Let it fall, let it fall Rhythmic raindrops dance Let it fall, let it fall Sweet rain holds your hand Verse 2 The land is dry and tired But with the rain the blade and blossom grow The field and forest are on fire It's time to let it go Chorus Let it fall, let it fall Rhythmic raindrops dance Let it fall, let it fall Sweet rain holds your hand Bridge This is the moment to listen They a simple tale Quiet water, how you glisten All is well Chorus Let it fall, let it fall Rhythmic raindrops dance Let it fall, let it fall Sweet rain holds your hand Chorus Let it fall, let it fall Rhythmic raindrops dance Let it fall, let it fall Sweet rain holds your hand Tag Sweet rain holds your hand Lyrics by: Thomas A. Hirschler

Comin' Home 03:34
Verse 1 Thought this world had a place for me; I walked away searching Thought I could stand on this shifting ground; But I was wrong, Lord I need You now Chorus I run to You, Lord I’m comin’ home; I’m tired of fighting, Lord I surrender I finally see; I see Your arms open up to me Verse 1 I’ve tasted all that this world can give; My heart’s desire passing Left all my dreams on this hallowed ground; I’m comin’ home, Lord, I need you now Chorus I run to You, Lord I’m comin’ home; I’m tired of fighting, Lord I surrender I finally see; I see Your arms open up to me Bridge I open my heart; Give You my life; All of the pain; All of the strife I open my mind; Surrender my soul; No need to fear; You’re in control I open my heart, to You Lord I open my heart Oh Chorus I run to You, Lord I’m comin’ home; I’m tired of fighting, Lord I surrender I finally see; I see Your arms open up to me Tag I see Your arms open up to me; I feel your heart reaching out to me I’m comin’ home; I’m comin’ home Lyrics by: Jeanine M. Weintz

Verse 1 In the time of pain You make Your presence known You send help though the tempests toss In the time of pain we sing You’re holy In the time of pain we know we’re safe Chorus We love You Lord with all of our heart We love You Lord with all of our soul With all of our mind With all of our strength We love You Lord Verse 2 In the time of joy You make all of our plans succeed Our longing hearts will overflow In the time of joy we see Your glory In the time of joy we know Your peace Chorus We love You Lord with all of our heart We love You Lord with all of our soul With all of our mind With all of our strength We love You Lord (We love You Lord) Chorus We love You Lord with all of our heart We love You Lord with all of our soul With all of our mind With all of our strength We love You Lord (We love You Lord) Lyrics by: Thomas A.

Well Done 04:27
Verse 1 Caught in the crossfire I can hardly breathe But a friend is in the trenches and I just can't let him bleed I guess there are two simple words that make the risk and fear A little less important Words I've got to hear Chorus Well done my good and faithful servant Well done blessed child of the Son With joy please enter in Well done my beloved one Verse 2 Bullets rip passed me the enemy closes in If I make a wrong move it could be a bitter end Headlong into battle I will not shed a tear The gates of hell are falling and I expect to hear Chorus Well done my good and faithful servant Well done blessed child of the Son With joy please enter in Well done my beloved one Bridge I want to hear You call my name and say That the things I've done have pleased You all along the way This world is quickly passing I want you Lord to say Chorus Well done my good and faithful servant Well done blessed child of the Son With joy please enter in Well done my beloved one Chorus Well done my good and faithful servant Well done blessed child of the Son With joy please enter in Well done my beloved one Lyrics by: Thomas A. Hirschler
