No! I'm not afraid I won't be the one that gets in your way and No! I won't be ashamed Shout it from the rooftops that you save And I, I will not be moved I'm not afraid I won't be the one that gets in your way 'cause You You alone are true You speak the truth I won't believe the lies coming in my view And I will face the day When my guilt has gone, my guilt has gone away And it's all because of the price you paid The stone's been rolled away The stone's been rolled away Behold! You are the King There is no one else in who's name I sing Bold! I do believe I will not be silenced by anything My strength, my strength comes from the Lord Of everything He will make the frost turn into spring; I'm cold But soon I will be warm Wrapped up in Your Overwhelming love knocking at my door And I will face the day When my guilt has gone, my guilt has gone away And it's all because of the price you paid The stone's been rolled away The stone's been rolled away And I see you beneath the troubles that I face I want to raise you above all my ways No! I'm not afraid I won't be the one that gets in your way and No! I won't be ashamed Shout it from the rooftops that you save And I, I will not be moved I'm not afraid I won't be the one that gets in your way 'cause You You alone are true You speak the truth I won't believe the lies coming in my view I'll obey the purpose that you move I'll follow all the truth and love you prove in me

Tribute 04:20
It’s always hard to find the words To describe the man who gave me A life that has a humble heart In this world of hate A light that never seems to fade I cannot relate to hate I cannot relate Cause he gave me Christ I remember many times When sacrifice was not a rare find He would always sacrifice Jesus, take the wheel and steer He would always be my guide Even when I wouldn’t hear his cry When I wouldn’t hear He showed me Christ You were always filled with faith You were always filled with wisdom You were always living free You were always living Jesus’ way So I give these words to you And watch as you prepare to live through Life as an example free And for this I am so proud You’ll continue to believe Even when what’s wrong is loud Even when what's wrong is loud Even when what's wrong is loud

God might kill me, but I have no other hope He is within me and I hold nothing to scope I am dead to all my own decisions I am dead to all my “human rights” I give it all to You cause none of it is worth anything to me Compared to the glory of Your grace; it sets me free Love me with the depth of the sea; come and stretch me till I’m buckling at the knees I need You more than anything; You set me free (Free me) Please come stay with me I can’t believe in me without You Don’t let me be I need You now I need You now I will not be swayed by my own imperfections I’ll place my faith in my Savior’s resurrection I am dead to all the sins I’ve made I’m alive because of my Savior’s grave I give it all to You cause none of it is worth anything to me Compared to the glory of Your grace; it sets me free Love me with the depth of the sea; come and stretch me till I’m buckling at the knees I need You more than anything; You set me free The anger of my Lord Lasts only for a moment The favor of my Lord Forever holds The anger of my Lord Lasts only for a moment The favor of my Lord Forever holds Forever holds Forever holds Forever holds

Just Like Me 03:49
I don’t think I want a funeral when I die I’d rather you forget my whole screwed up life Cause everything I did for you tonight I did it all for all the wrong reasons And I don’t mean to be A hater of what’s me Cause I love myself almost as much as you But I can’t take credit for Everything that you adore Most of it’s lost to my sore Fallen heart I try to be humble and pure Everything that you are sure Is the whole reason to be Just like me But I give to the poor just to try and get more From the one who delivers me And I love you so just so that you’ll show Me your love and you’ll cherish me I am a faker, it’s true Everything I do for you I selfishly do for my own Flawed agenda It’s not that I’m always out for me and mine But I can’t keep my heart clean inside It’s not that I don’t love you; I really do But my Savior’s love is perfect and mine falls through He’s forgiven me For everything you’ve seen And he loves me still despite my falling through But I can’t take credit for Everything that you adore Most of it’s lost to my sore Fallen heart I try to be humble and pure Everything that you are sure Is the whole reason to be Just like me But I give to the poor just to try and get more From the one who delivers me And I love you so just so that you’ll show Me your love and you’ll cherish me Yeah, I give to the poor just to try and get more From the one who delivers me And I love you so just so that you’ll show Me your love and you’ll cherish me I am a faker, it’s true Everything I do for you I selfishly do for my own Flawed agenda But my Savior is true He will always love you He will love you for who you are He will love you for who you are

But for now I’ll serve the least of these With all that I know they’re craving All your love and hope is bleeding To be brought to those who are needing Oh how I long to be free from the weather Free from the snow and the rain Oh how I long to be free from desire The freedom of nothing to gain Remember, remember Our lives are but only a moment in time We were designed for much more But for now I’ll serve the least of these With all that I know they’re craving All your love and hope is bleeding To be brought to those who are needing I will enjoy all the blessings you give me I’ll play in the snow and the rain Though I am ready to be done here Your work over here isn’t done So use me, Lord use me I will fall and I’ll crack myself open But that’s how your love will shine through So for now I’ll serve the least of these With all that I know they’re craving All your love and hope is bleeding To be brought to those who are needing And I know that you’ll show Me the way to be to deliver me To the broken and outspoken To reveal to all how your mercy calls So for now I’ll serve the least of these With all that I know they’re craving All your love and hope is bleeding To be brought to those who are needing

I don’t mean to impose But I need to know Where you find Your reason to grow Your reason to grow I need mine I’m failing everything just because I refuse to try I’m losing all the faith in myself that I could find And I’m trying hard to keep on my good side But I’m finding out how deep the issues lie for What feels right doesn’t fit the game and now I’m fighting just to stay the same somehow When all I need is a transformation And all I want is a defamation Face forward Move onward Tomorrow Will follow Left my pride on the door step Ten years ago When I found These addictions that keep me Locked and controlled I’m still bound I’m bloodied and I’m bruised from the wounds that I’ve applied I’m broken and confused by the thoughts that I’ve supplied And I’m trying hard to keep on my good side But I’m finding out how deep the issues lie ’cause What feels right doesn’t fit the game and now I’m fighting just to stay the same somehow When all I need is a transformation And all I want is a defamation What feels right doesn’t fit the game and now I’m fighting just to stay the same somehow When all I need is a transformation And all I want is a defamation Face forward Move onward Tomorrow Will follow

Believe 04:07
See the burning bush Hear the voice of God Bow before the throne You stand on holy ground Believe it’s real How could you doubt, Thomas? You stand before your God You see his nail-torn hands You see his pierced side Believe it’s real You never cared to listen You’re blind to all religion And while the morning glistens You curse the sun Believe it’s real
9.
I’m sorry to comply It’s hard to think that I Would ever find myself in others’ shoes And though I’m haunted by This conformity of mine I can’t release the faith I have in Christ He’s no tradition; traditions fade He’s no religion; religions change I’ve questioned everything under the sun And really there’s not that much that’s won But every time I try to question Christ I somehow always seem to come out blind Now I’m not one to lie On the backs of others’ lies In fact I’d rather be completely blind But listen to me now I’ll never fail to lounge On the back of He who never lets me down For I’m just a sinner, and I will change But my decision is to be saved So listen to me now I’m fighting for the day When we can see that Christ is Not a dumb cliche Forgive me if I come Across a bit to strong But I am sick and tired of The rap that’s going down

Could I have known That she felt that way Could I have known I would never have said it that way And the blame It rests upon my head It’s the same thing As if I shot her dead, shot her dead An early grave for my best friend I should have listened when she said It’s not worth it And now I’m stuck here in pain And she has died in vain Could I have been there Maybe she would still Be right here And we could grow old and frail An early grave for my best friend I should have listened when she said It’s not worth it It wasn’t worth it It wasn't worth it

Nevermind the aftermath of war Justify the consequence of your Decision to get into this, this war Look at all the dead bodies you ignore Force yourself to realize you’re the author Of this mess you walk through, you’re so sore Would you teach your children this truth? And would they grow up to be just like you? Who would they kill? Who will they kill? When they grow up Only if you could forget what’s right and wrong Then you could run this place so strong Take on every obstacle with your arm Life just doesn’t work that way, my friend And death’s what happens when you try to pretend That life’s just one big competition Cause only one survives then, would it be you? So you go teach your children this truth And watch them grow up to be just like you Watch them kill their sons and daughters too Watch them make the same mistakes as you
