Ready to fly

Tell me are you losing your sense of wonder
Is gravity pulling you under
Have you lost the urge to dream to reach to touch the sky
Do you always colour by numbers
Are your siblings stealing your thunder
Do you choose to walk the road that someone else prescribes you

Ready to fly Ready to fly
Ready to fly

Tell me does your outlook come with vision
Does it start and end in tradition
Are you bored or too indifferent to analyse
Are you focussed are you driven
Are you using what you've been given
Are you conscious what it takes to reach for higher heights
Do you risk do you live life daring
Do you wait for the nod from your parents
Is approval still the fuel that fills and runs your life
Would you say that your judgement's sinking
Cutting corners in your thinking
Too much depth or elevation and you're dizzy, are you

Ready to fly
Ready to fly
Ready to fly

(Have you dropped the weight that you needed Settled in strapped up are you seated)

Tell me Is your baggage over the limit
With the weight of your shame and secrets
Are you still held back by history and family ties
Can you name do you own your feelings
Have you sought have you had your healing
Are you stalling ever waiting for the perfect time

High Hopes

I climbed inside the loft today
And took the cobwebs down
I dusted dreams of yesterday
And shifted stuff around

I still feel them though they're somewhat worn and older
Tired but breathing And they just won't seem to go away

So so so somewhere in my head somewhere in my head
So so so somewhere in my head here in me I've got

High hopes Somewhere in me
Dreams still alive pumping in my memory
High hopes Somewhere in me
Dreams still alive pumping in my memory

When I was young I had the faith
To rival saints and scribes
Though fires burn lower now and then faith it still has been
Persisting all this time

Optimism's rising now my heart is risking
Taking chances stirring deep inside me night and day

If You Feel Nothing

Grave impressions on the outside
It ain't hard to see the pain
Lost the feeling on the inside
Cold as stone and numb like nails
I've got nothing surprising
I'm sure you've heard it all before
Somehow we are not connecting
Love don't live here anymore

If you feel nothing there is something wrong
You and me apparently are not where we belong

There's a subtle sobriety
Skirts the edges of my brain
A sense a stubborn resistance
Is it ever gonna change
Never thought it would be easy
Never thought it'd be this hard
Look at us - it is frightening
Just how far apart we are

Weighing heavy on my heart
As we stumble through the dark
And we feel nothing
And we feel nothing

If you feel nothing
There is something wrong
You and me honestly
Are not where we belong
If you feel nothing
There is something wrong
You and me obviously
Are not where we belong

Be Strong

It takes courage to look at your life step back take a long hard look and search your inside
To see just who you are and who you want to be find out your calling and fulfil your destiny

To lift your light up and shine like a star to do the right thing no matter how hard
Whatever it feels like that cross you wear remember God won't leave you more than you can bear

So be strong so be strong so be strong hold on hold on
So be strong so be strong so be strong hold on hold on

It takes courage to keep the faith to fight your way through the raging storm and not be swayed

To stand for justice and go against the flow to keep your vision even when you stand alone

I gotta be strong cause times are changing Lord give me strength to fight temptation
It's so amazing but hard sometimes How the mind can be tricked but I have to find
The courage to know I can fight my fear When it seems a little hard it can become clear
The strength is within and I was born to win To live a righteous life free of sin


It takes courage to hold it down to choose wisely when the pressure is on
To cool your passion and engage your brain I know temptation can drive you insane

The Spirit is with you to strengthen and keep you
his power His presence they never will leave you
So fight like a champion while running this race
a great crowd of witnesses cheering you on god holds it together he's with you forever

Be strong in the Lord and the power of His might so be strong hold on hold on
Be strong and courageous and do what is right so be strong hold on hold on

Human

Every moment, time is of the essence every second leads me on again
To a place of shame and wonder care and pride into apathy

Certain souls more equal than the others many reasons seem to be exchanged
Laissez-faire refuels the lies and will veil our eyes and we just don't see

Human lives precious beings
Human lives and we just go on and we just won't see

Love and wisdom seeking out a channel true religion bleeds to be attained
Holding dear what you or I can't create or buy what a mystery


So I say get up brothers' keepers sisters' keepers all are we
I say we are we are we are we are so shake it off the
feeling of helplessness the coma the ennui
Til we are wide awake and the pain sears our hearts
Well do you feel like God has forgotten them don't stop
now check your motive out and make a change
Children so desperate, spirits so lonely
Giving as we go I hope you know we're all

Like I Need Air

In truth it is no mystery
No secret in my life
But it's a fact I need Your love
I need You alright
From the time the sun is up
Until it's time to sleep
And all the while the moon is out
It is You I need,
I say it again

That I do realise I need You like I need air
Like nothing else in life I need You like I need air
And every day and night I need You like I need air
I need air I need air I need air to live
And I do realise …

I'm not alone in the way I feel
It's a universal call
Around the world people crying out
I need You O God
Another day another cry
I'll make my cry a song
By giving up my thanks and praise
Til my days are done
I say it again
Mighty rivers fill up the ocean
I'm Your ocean don't pass by
Don't ever leave us Lord
Don't ever leave us Godless

There The River Runs

I hear a storm is brewing
It's in the air tonight
I hear the thunder warning
I see the lightning strike
Somewhere the sea is stirring
And the heavens turn to grey

Across the desert region
The clouds erase the sky
The wind is howling in through
The wilderness inside
And looking from my window
There's not a soul in sight

And the rain comes down
And the sun is gone
The night is long
And the streets are cold and lonely
There the river runs
And the rain comes down
And the sun is gone
The night is long
And there's no one there beside me
There the river runs

I hear the silence screaming
It seems to call my name
The echoes of a lifetime
Resound in me again
I feel the flood is coming
I can't hold back the pain

Did I Play The Sun

Here's a little question for me growing stirring up inside
When it's time to be serious and to think of how I've lived my life
When it all comes down and I've got to give account for what I do
Hope I can answer, tell me what about you

A little voice inside would nudge me whispering every day
Gently reminding me don't get caught up in my own way
But did I get it right sometimes I'd get an attitude
I'd do my own thing now I'm asking Him

Did I play the sun or was I like the moon
Did I sing Your song or play my tune
Standing on the Rock or heading for my ruin
One thing for sure is I'll know soon

My life my destiny I take the reins in my own hands
Known your reality but when it counts who's the man
I'd give you credit still I'm contemplating checking in
How would you say I've been

This is a check before it's too late who really runs the show
Choosing to check before it's too late who really runs the show
This is a check before it's too late who really runs the show
Choosing to check before it's too late who really runs the show

Nothing Less

It's my desire to be a witness
To be a voice in my generation
To be a part of the revolution
And make a difference in my generation
Geared to the times anchored to the Rock
And I will I will serve the Lord
And I need
Nothing less than His strength
Nothing less than His power
Nothing less than God in me
I need
Nothing less than His love
Nothing less than His Spirit
Nothing less than God in me
The future's rising
There's so much promise
Let's share the light with the next generation
We will empower we'll be supportive
Our prayers releasing the next generation
Giving what they need so the youth will lead
So they will they will serve the Lord
And they'll need
Nothing less than His strength
Nothing less than His power
Nothing less than God in me
Where are old and young, women and men who are willing to serve God with all
their strength, all their heart and all their soul? Where are those who do not hold on
to their power and position, but share with the next generation because at the end of
the day they know it all belongs to God anyway? I pray this song will bless you!
They'll need
Nothing less than His love
Nothing less than His Spirit
Nothing less than God in me
Lord empty me, purify
Come prepare my heart
For the task ahead is great
Use me fill me up
Til there is
Nothing left but Your strength
Nothing left but Your power
Nothing left but God in me
Til there's
Nothing left but Your love
Nothing left but Your Spirit
Nothing left but God in me
I need
Nothing less than Your strength
Nothing less than Your power
Nothing less than God in me
I need
Nothing less than Your love
Nothing less than Your Spirit
Nothing less than God in me

Mad About Me

You're the deepest culture shock to the heart
Controversial light that shatters the dark
You are wisdom thrilling blazing divine
A promise of passion til the end of time
I'm surrendering to a basic instinct
Where the mind and spirit fall into sync
It's a deep divide that's bridged by a creed
You're vowing you live
and you would die for me
You're mad about me
Mad about me
Completely
Mad about me
Feel the crisis rumbling all round the world
It's a sonic vibe a visual vogue
With a restless senselessness of it all
For peace underneath you know
my faith is small
No matter where you came from or where you think your life is headed,
no matter what you did or what happened to you, God is totally, crazily,
passionately, absolutely, madly in love with you. This wonderfully wild
idea deserves a wildly wonderful celebration. Turn it up!
My suspicion mixed with hope and surprise
The abandoned leap across the divide
With the cynic in me taunting my brain
Still telling me no one ever loves this way
Is it so
There's someone out there
Who cares enough
Whose quest is me
Who's in fierce pursuit
And won't give up the chase
No matter what my heart feels my mind
thinks my head says
A forgiving love never out of reach
Though I struggle with the same thoughts
the same flaws the same sin
If it's really so
It could really be

Reach For The Love

Tragedy won't go away times are hard I hear you say
It's up to us to make a change
We've got what it takes - We've got what it takes

Hearts are broken everywhere some are lonely some are scared
How to spark a little faith
We've got what it takes - We've got what it takes

Every little baby does every man and woman does
Every single one of us you know what we need
We need love

Reach for the love yeah cause all the world needs it and everybody needs it
Reach for the love yeah cause all the world needs it and everybody needs it

So look up don't be afraid let's create a better place
Starting where we are today
We've got what it takes we've got what it takes

We need love we need it

We need love we need it

All Godīs Children

Why - in this time of enlightening the injustice is frightening
Billions still are struggling fighting barely surviving

Why - aren't we coming up equal watched the past here's the sequel
Feel my hope take a beating seeing history repeating

Why - Where I am when it's violent everybody keeps silent
Since they're selling the news and their views they just choose skip the issues

Why - You just see my offences can't you see I'm defenceless
You ease then you tease me squeeze deceive then you leave me

Why O why Tell me why O why
When we're all God's children

Why O why Tell me why O why
When we're all God's children

Why - am I left unprotected you'd think we're not connected
Feel the joy and the pain need the sun and the rain just the same so

Why - With power wealth and labour the scales are tipped in your favour
Our blood sweat and tears have been flowing and pouring for years

So why want to hold up our heads high deserve respect, have the same pride
You act like it's fate educate and debate like you hate me

Why - Makes no sense that we're not fine living under the same sky
Few thriving but most still suffering daily tell me

We're all God's children So let His will be done
I say we're all God's children O Lord Lord
Just one love check the reality No matter the colour or the nationality
Just peace love and unity And that make the world work in harmony

Praise the Lord every sunrise Tumaini and Tendai
though like on that tree you may feel Lord why you forsake me

Why - Don't be cast down by evil we're a spirited people
Our God doesn't sleep though down deep we be wrestling questioning

I say we're all God's children Let His will be done
I say we're all God's children Bless Thy kingdom come
Just one love check the reality No matter the colour or the nationality
Just peace love and harmony And that's what we want in the community
For we're all God's children

You Are Loved

There are days you don't know where you're going to
That's why I took the time to write this song for you
When there's pain crowding in to claim your heart
I pray you'll always know the miracle you are


You are loved, You are loved, You are loved
You are precious, You are wanted, You are loved

And when this world seems to be a crazy place
And darkness tries to steal the light from your face
May your gaze lead you to the sky above
Remember there is truth that you can lean upon

So keep these words hidden in your heart for then
And hold on to the One, you can be sure He made you well
Let go and let His will be your embrace
The universe is God's and you have got your place

Jesus Is On The Move

Jesus first, second chance
Turned my mourning into dance
Turned my sadness to a song
I will sing my whole life long
God is not dead
Jesus is alive
He's living in me
He changed my life
He's speaking to His church
He's gonna get through
Jesus is on the move
In my work in my school
In my home and family too
In this land throughout the world
God is moving spread the word
Live His love, make it real
Til divisions start to heal
All the streams flow as one
Come on church keep moving on
Originally written for the German youth
event Christival, here's an international
bonus recorded in South Africa, Barbados,
England, Croatia & Germany. Jesus
is on the move everywhere. Sing it like
you believe it!
