Track Name: Reformers
I am a child of the Most High King
He has freed me and adopted me
No longer a slave to fear or shame or who I am
I will step out and dare to dream, to dream!

We are the reformers!
And we believe Him at His Word
We’re the greatest dreamers!
Our eyes will see heaven come
Our eyes will see heaven touch this earth

We dare to believe
We dare to dream greater things
We dare to step out
And see our dream become reality

I am free to live victoriously
Jesus is alive and lives in me
No longer in a prison of impossibilities, I will step out (x2)
‘Cause I have been set free, all things are possible for me
I will step out and dare to dream, to dream!

It’s through our lives
Yeah, with our eyes
We’ll see His kingdom come
As the sons of God, arise and shine
Awaken a new dawn
Track Name: Suddenly
You’ve run out of hope, you’ve run up against a wall
Just trying to cope, look for something to ease the fall
You don’t know what’s next, is it near or is it far?
It’s hard to know when you don’t hold the cards

The dreams in our hearts, we try to suppress, they never really go away
The trials we face are part of the race, producing an eternal weight of glory

Suddenly, He points and it’s your turn
All the pain that you’ve endured is now worth something more
Are you ready? Did you learn? Did you grow in suffering?
Did you choose to live your life for eternity?

You live in a world that’s full of politics and images
You try to break the status quo, pursue a dream they’ve yet to know

But everyday, feel the pressure, feel exposed
The same storm can make you stronger or cause you to give up your dreams
Just remember that perseverance does not come suddenly
Keep on keeping on, building character, hope, like eagle’s wings
Will lift you higher, it will not disappoint in eternity

For love, love pours down
From above, love pours down to our hearts
Love, love pours down
From above, love pours down

Suddenly, He points and it’s your turn
All the pain that you’ve endured is now worth something more
We pray and we let go, we give to God and hope
The promises He gives depend on how we live
If we’re ready, if we’ve learned, if we’ve grown in suffering
If we chose to live our lives for eternity

Will you choose to live your life for eternity?
Track Name: Beauty Arise
Why do you hide your face from being seen
Why do you keep your voice from being free?
For your face is lovely, your voice is sweet
You beauty is unique
You carry a tune inside you that only you can release

Why do you quench the fire in your heart?
You are much stronger than you think you are
You hide in your shell, afraid to break out
But darling here’s the truth:
No one could ever be a more perfect, beautiful you

See the winter is gone
Behold, the springtime has come!

Oh, it’s time, spread your wings and fly
It’s time, beauty to arise
Open your eyes, take the skies
Don’t look back, hit the gas!
Beauty soar, beauty fly, beauty arise!

Beauty arise! (repeat)

Darling, don’t you know that
You’re beautiful! (repeat)
Track Name: Love Never Fails
Love always hopes and perseveres
Love always trusts and keeps me near
Love never fails, it never fails
Through peaceful calm and raging hell

That is the love You have for me
That is the love I want to bring
If I the world but have not love
I have nothing

Love overcomes and conquers all
Love is greatest of them all
Love never fails, it never fails
To protect me

Love is the One who died for me
Love is the One who set me free
Love ever fails, He never fails
To save me
Love is the One who makes me new
Love is the One I belong to
Love never fails, He never fails
To find me
Track Name: Come Away With Me
All beautiful you are, my darling
There is no flaw in you
Your face will shine among ten thousand
‘Cause I’m in love with you

Come away with Me to higher places
We were meant to be, yeah

I will rest assured in all I am
For I’m Your Beloved
Track Name: No Greater Love
Do you remember the day we first met?
From a fisherman then to a fisher of men
Now, we dream together and great things expect
How far we have come, my friend

Lay down your striving and lay down your pain
I call you friend; you’re no longer a slave
My heart is a home, and I give you the keys
Abide in my love and you’ll see~

Oh! There is no greater love, no greater love
Than to lay down one’s life for His friends
There is no greater love, no greater love
Know that I am with you, to the end …My friend!

And even if you should ever betray me
This bridge I am always willing to mend
Don’t hide your eyes, 'cause I want you to know me
My love I will always extend

I, I call you friend
I've opened my heart to you
And let you in
You can wound me and bruise me too
There is no wall
That I’m not willing to break through
No price too great
This is my body, broken for You
Broken for you
Broken for You, broken for You, broken for You!
Track Name: I Surrender
Your thoughts are higher
Your ways are higher
Than my ways, O God
I surrender

To Your ways, O God
I surrender
To Your ways, O God
I surrender everything

For You will never give up on me
Although I cannot yet understand
I know that You see much farther than me
My life is safe in Your sovereign hands

For You have the best intentions for me (I trust Your heart)
And You have a perfect plan for me (I trust Your way)
I know that You have the best intentions for me (I trust Your heart)
Surely, You have a perfect plan for me (I trust Your way)
Track Name: The Secret of the Secret Place
I live with my arms open
A place of wholehearted devotion

It’s the secret
Of the secret place

(It’s) in this place that I know Your will
For the moment, and I’m fearless

All my ambitions are in You
All my affections are for You
All my attention is on You, on You, Jesus
All my ambitions are in You
All my affections are for You
All my attention is on You, and I’m fearless

You are my rock, I won’t be moved
In the flood, one thing I do
I set my eyes only on You
And I’m fearless
And in Your Presence, I will see
Lame men walk and blind eyes see
Deaf ears open and cancer flee
In Your glory

Just simply, waiting
No more striving
Not one sweat
God, it’s all You
Track Name: In Your Hands
It seems impossible to keep
Hope alive and be at peace
Amidst the trials and uncertainties
My mind is in a constant war
Will I trust? Will I let go?
Is your love all that I’m living for?

‘Cause this journey gets so hard, sometimes I want to stop
Just fall back in Your arms and let You catch me
And when my heart feels crushed, You take me in Your arms
And in that place, I am at peace

It’s all in Your hands, You have a perfect plan
Though I don’t know what lies down the road
I trust in Your love, I trust in Your power
For You, there is no impossible

All I want is to be free
From the lies and false beliefs
That for too long have been crippling me
Yes, it’s time to face the truth
That there’s nothing I can do
‘Til I completely hide myself in You

Finally I am letting go
Finally I release control
Finally I can fall into Your arms
Track Name: Rest
Come now, into my arms and lay down all of your burdens
I will hold you until you sleep
Let me take all your sorrows, and put your tears in my bottle
Darling, your heart is safe with me

I am here, with you, beside you
Don’t you fear, my wings will hide you
Be at rest, cast your anxieties on me
I am here, with you, beside you
Don’t you fear, my wings will hide you
Be at rest, all of your fountains are in me

Come now, you who are burdened, weary and heavy-laden
I will ease and refresh your soul
Rest and soak in my presence, quiet, calm and content for
My love will be your blessed home
Track Name: Tender Heart
Thank you for your tender heart and your humility
Your selfless love brings warmth to every heart and family
Thank you for your passion, it never seems to dry
The way you hunger for the Lord has really changed my life, and I say

Thank you for loving me, thank you for giving to me
Thank you for the fragrance of your offering
Your love is like a song, your faith in God is strong
And beautiful your tender heart is to me
Your tender heart – it moves me

Thank you for your child-like heart and simple faith in God
You live in full obedience without counting the cost
Your life is like a fragrance, an alabaster jar
You’ve broken and you’ve poured it out, a poor and contrite heart
And I hear God singing
