Inspired to serve

Come along join the song that is stirring our days
Let the earth touch the sky with extravagant praise
Raise your hands lift them high as you ride the wave - Come on

We are one we belong we're the family of God
We're a body united together we're strong
Here to stand in His name, here to make a change - Come on
Woah…God is good yeah

Set free and I am on fire
Spirit is lifting me higher
Here we go here we go
Inspired to serve

Come along join the song we are taking this chance
Let us follow the leader the Lord of the dance
We will rise with the challenge loud and strong - Come on
God is good yeah

Add:
I'm gonna serve I'm gonna serve
I'm gonna serve the Lord forever

Great & mighty

Have you heard have you seen
Do you know what's going on
There's a pulse can you feel it
It has been there all along
He who's larger than life
Booms above my stereo
With a message of power
Cause we really need to know
God will have His place
Look up look up look up look up look up and see

Tell me how low can you bend low
Tell me how high can your hands fly
When we look up and see
Our God great and mighty

Now prepare to be amazed
Open up yourself and see
All the wonder in our days
Come and taste the mystery
Bring your doubt bring your fear
Bring your worries everyone
All your hurt all your care
Bring 'em on and lay them down
And if you're at the end
Look up look up look up look up look up again

Chorus +
Woah oh oh great & mighty (x4)



Search your soul strip your heart
Getting down on bended knee
Take your eyes off yourself
For a moment, you will see
Who we are and who He is
Everything fall into place
With veneration in the dance
And in reverence celebrate
Our God He reigns
Look up look up look up look up look up and see
Look up look up look up look up look up and see
Look up look up look up look up look up

Chorus

Everybody everybody everybody look up and see (x8)

One day

One day
If I could know You just one day
So many things I'd like to say Oh yeah
If I could know You just one day


Well if I truly truly had the chance to meet You
I would lose myself
It would be awe and wonder from the time I see You
I would lose myself
And I have the suspicion that my words would be few
I would lose myself
All the questions I have absorbed in You
I would lose myself

Maybe I'd see love from Your perspective
I would lose myself
Understanding coming by my retrospective
I would lose myself
I'd be coming at life from a new dimension
I would lose myself
No more wasting time with my apprehension
I would lose myself

Stop the people pleasing, leave the insignificant
I would lose myself
And I won't be held back by my inhibitions
I would lose myself
Let the lies and the rumours fall into place
I would lose myself
I'd have all that matters when I look in Your face

Get Up

Pull them strings with money and things is the world and its ways
Still your soul is in your control no matter what they say
Love essential stirred up the temple - and I long to see
Christianity touching reality like it's called to be

Hey hey arise
Get up get up
Hey hey it's time
Get up get up

Just ain't funny seeing how money talks louder than pain
Europe Asia Australia America Africa the same
Wealth demands it, whose are the hands that wring the powerless dry
All and sundry feel the need go do something with your life

Every day it's 42 000 children pass away
Most despicable those from preventable diseases today
See how we got the audacity giving God all the blame
No good reasons no excuses these are things we could change

Add:
And if you keep your faith how can you keep your distance

Bridge
These are the signs
These are the times
These are the things that should open your mind

Wake up sleeper
These are the days
Bear up the light and do what He says

These are the signs
These are the times
These are the things that should go through your mind
This state of mind will leave you wide awake

Rap:

If Malcolm had a dream then I guess I am living his vision
Praying for my brothers that are locked up in mental prisons
See what going on - on the earth I maintain
Trying to hack my way out of this matrix mainframe
Trying to come to peace with myself is so hard
But everyday is a blessing and yes thank God
I keep walking past the obstacles hoping I don't fail
I am searching for the truth like in the Holy Grail
Man I set sail and I'm out there searching for Zion
Because I've learnt in this world there's very few you can rely on
So I keep to my own and hope He is hearing my prayers
Staying true to the art and I rock it like Amadeus -

Cause it's crazy too much sometimes to fathom
Thinking how the mechanism of the devil has them
Trying to get me too I can sense him right on my back
But I am staying true to God like when the angels attack

Riding round the sun

Life's turbulent on earth sometimes
Days and nights and years roll by
I miss the crazy world we used to live in
Spinning, turning, riding round the sun


I feel no magic riding round the sun
I'm feeling blue riding round the sun
So what's the point in riding round the sun
Riding without you


Maze, odyssey through time and space
Lose my pride and save my face
I must admit alone I'll never make it
Living, breathing, riding round the sun


I hopped on the ride I hit the rain, I never want to be lonely
If you take the time to try us again I'll be your one and your only
Got one shot at life I don't want to miss - let's take the planet together
Give all that I can to circle with you yeah

The greatest thing

Saw my light go on with the course of time
Showed me all of the things I must leave behind
Now I'm travelling light as I face the storm
Wrap Your Spirit around me to keep me warm

The greatest things that you're given are free
Great the things You have given to me
My heart don't need diamonds or pearls
The greatest thing is You're here in my world

It's like I was blinded but now I can see
Truth is if it weren't for You Lord I don't know what would happen to me
This road it is winding, I'm searching inside
I finally am finding the treasure in things that no money can buy

Bridge:
Don't want a meaningless search for my time on earth
So I pray God make me wise
Don't let me fall in the pace of this human race
Where I chase what already is mine
I got things to do I can't get with the view
Who dies with the most toys wins
Who dies with the most is just dead as you know
Life is so precious a thing

And you've got one shot if you've got today
It's two shots if you get lucky
Maybe three shots but just maybe
You won't get the chance to come back again
You got one shot better use it well
Every day time it will tell
The treasure is life and love is the key
The greatest the biggest the best things you're given are free

So far so good
(Medley: Alright OK, Whose side, What I need (O la la), Susi, Can't take it anymore, Jesus first, Don't you know)

When everything and everyone in all the world seems crazy
Flesh is weak the spirit is lazy
You help me change it around

When everything and everyone in all the world seems crazy
Flesh is weak the spirit is lazy
You help me change it around
Cause then I know that only You and You alone can save me
So I cling to the promise You gave me
And you never let me down

You make my life
You make my days
You make my nights
You make it all
Alright OK Alright OK

Whose side are you leaning on
Leaning on the Lord's side

I lean I lean I lean I lean
Leaning on the Lord's side

When I feel I'm walking through the water
I'm gonna make it out safe
When I feel I'm walking through the fire
I'm gonna make it out safe
When I feel the storms overwhelm me
I'm gonna make it out safe
When I know I feel like I'm sinking
I'm gonna make it out safe

Oh oh oh la la la ooh yeah la la la oh yeah
Everybody sing
Oh oh oh la la la ooh yeah la la la oh yeah

As I am walking through the world
Of all the lessons I must learn
Give me open eyes to see
What I want and what I need

Give to me my daily bread
Give me a roof over my head

Friends and family I can call
Give me love most of all

La la la
La la la
Give to me
Many lessons I have learned

Oh oh oh la la la ooh yeah la la la oh yeah
Everybody sing
Oh oh oh la la la ooh yeah la la la oh yeah

Susi Susi in your eyes I see
Just a girl who's got a heart like me
Life is hard don't you know
If you really want to grow
You gotta reach down down down down
You gotta reach down down down down

Susi don't you worry
Keep on reaching for the heights
Just remember to climb the mountain
You gotta reach down down inside
You gotta reach down down inside

Susi wants joy Susi wants change
Susi wants peace Susi wants a name
Susi wants friends Susi wants love
All of the things that we're dreaming of

Oh na na na na na na I can't take it anymore
No longer can I live below the limits of a love that is stronger
Oh na na na na na na I can't take it anymore

I feel the pain I feel the thunder
It's enough to pull me under
Had me talking talking to myself

Oh na na na na na na I can't take it anymore
No longer can I live below the limits of a love that is stronger
Oh na na na na na na I can't take it anymore

Yes I believe You're the Christ my authority
And yes I believe that You are Lord
No other gods You will be my priority
The One that I am fixed upon

Jesus Jesus yes I will follow
Jesus Jesus in all I do
Jesus Jesus help me remember
That first of all comes You

Don't you know don't you know don't you know don't you know don't you know
God is love

Don't worry stop fretting
Cause fretting won't stretch your lifeline
Don't live your days anxious
You're missing the joy you could find

He will be there lighting our days
Guarding our hearts from the world and it's ways and
All who believe they will be saved
This is the gospel and I'm not ashamed

Don't you know don't you know don't you know don't you know don't you know
God is love

Jesus in my house

Thank you Heavenly Father for Your love for me
I'm forever grateful that You sacrificed Your Son
You saved my soul and changed my destiny
Thank you God for Jesus in me


I'm so glad that Jesus lives in my house
Good to know that He is here with me now
All of my life Jesus in me
Jesus in my house
All of my life and always will be

Thank you for the purpose You have placed in me
Thank you for forgiveness and the chance to start again
I face the future knowing I will be
Safe and sound with Jesus in me

Holding on to You

You my Lord are the Friend I've found
Who picks me up when I'm on the ground
You remain when the night is long
And stick with me when it all falls down

Deep inside me where no one goes
There're thoughts and feelings that no one knows
I am tired my soul is worn
Lonely still I am not alone

I'm holding on to You
You're holding on to me (x3)
Holding on to You and me

Love Divine You are heaven sent
Unconditional til the end
You've been with me since I don't know when
Stay with me You're my closest friend

Never

I've been forsaken shattered and shaken
I've been down I've been desperate
Flattened by a boulder then walked over
Trampled on and rejected
Lonely and afraid worked like a slave
Take a look at my history
But there's one thing that I never have been
This is my testimony

Never
Never say never but I say never
Never
Never have been unloved


I've been frustrated humiliated
Spat upon and insulted
Battered and broken used like a token
Quoted and not consulted
Used and abused accused and confused
People mixing up in my business
But still one thing that I never have been
Say can I have a witness

Bridge:
This is my message
This is my call
God Almighty's lover of all

Rap:

Born in the ghetto of Harare 1973
I had a vision coming down like it was heavenly
I had no fear because I knew what she was telling me
Blessed are those who are touched by the energy
But as I grew and evil forces want to penetrate
Metaphysics Jah Infinite my higher state
Helped me to levitate taught me to meditate
Now all the works that I create must generate
Cause we are living in a critical time the murder rate
And all the evil round the world seems to escalate
I see them emulate O what a wicked state
We're living in crucial time yo let me elaborate

Two sides

The truth has at least two sides
Depending on what you might see
What we make dimensions of where we might be
I know I have an ego as big as the sky
That may be why

It's good to be frightened
It's good when you're feeling small
It's good to be human
If You couldn't find my weakness
You couldn't get to me at all

Sometimes when the feelings fly it's crazy how they might rage
Living wise means learning to not run away
I love days when I feel good in my skin
But when it's bad it's then I've got to remember

Beware of the endless smile that never has a problem
And know-it-alls with an answer for everything
Dig down deep, no superficial delight
There're two sides - at least

If there won't be two sides you couldn't get at me

At a time like this

Sometimes the living ain't easy
You know there is trouble
You know it gets rough
Sometimes there's only just one thing
To stop me drowning in my need
And give me power when hope is frail

At a time like this I need the Lord to help me up
When I feel life's gonna weigh me down
I need You Lord help me Lord help me Lord
At a time like this I need the Lord to help me up
When I feel life's gonna weigh me down
I'll be leaning on Your love

Sometimes your faith takes a beating
You're barely surviving
It's pressure enough
Believing that God has a reason
That He can (make you) move you from this place
And make your heart smile again


Oh yeah (x3)
Oh yeah at a time like this

Surrounded

It’s amazing just to know
Everyday everywhere I am not alone
When I’m out there on the street
You be there always there to keep me company

In the countryside in the city
In the club in the church university
In the crowd or running solo
Like the sound coming from my stereo

Surrounded surrounded Oh
Surrounded surrounded
Thousand angels praying watching o’er me

Panning out still in the zone
All the world from Barbados to the Congo
To the outcast sick and weak
To the child on the shoulders of a desperate mother running running refugee

It’s omnipotence on the scene
In my reality power unseen
They come they carry me right on time
Alone is not alone when you’ve got heaven on the frontline

(Chorus)

Feel the tension coming on slow
Fifth dimension come into play
It’s protection and direction
So divine this intervention

The Omniscient knows the plot
The invisible take their spot
Heavenly hosts stand strong united
Waiting watching praying fighting

Rap:

People take Africa as a poor land
The jungles that we live in and the food we demand
They come to Africa to see us swinging on vines
Not to a tempo and rocking to dope rhymes
In movies they show us as cannibals that we’re not
We dance around fires putting people in pots
But it’s not like that we gotta face reality
Africa is nice with a basic simplicity
Of beauty a style of it’s own
I’ve got to back it up cause Africa’s my home
Silhouetted by a sunset no one can compare
And if you don't believe me then I’ll take you there
Yes a thousand angels watching over me
Protected by the power of the Almighty
A thousand angels watching over you
Let me tell you exactly what we about to do

Outro:
Watching over you watching over me
Watching over you now you now
Thousand angels praying watching o’er me
