Been getting stronger


It was all gonna be so simple
Love, dream, live life
Reality came crashing through the roof
Had to run for cover, had to run and hide


I’ve been spending time picking up the pieces
Ever since things fell apart
It’s taking ages to move on
But I sense some change is coming
Even though this load’s
Still heavy on my heart


The weight of waiting pulling me under
While I’ve been waiting
Been getting stronger
Whispers from heaven lost in the thunder
While I’ve been waiting
Been getting stronger


I need faith to see what may be growing
In the rubble of broken dreams
Building muscle out of mishaps,
Mistakes, regrets and misfortune
Huh – it isn’t easy


It found me learning to cry
Because it went so deep
Had me asking why
And it, it found me on my knees


Time rolls along, I wonder
Whose life is it anyway?
The questions come, I wonder
Whose life is it anyway?
When my strength is gone,
I wonder whose life is it anyway?
Help me

Getting ready for the ride


Standby, space to let
Moving on soon I won’t forget
Pack up, pay the rent
Living out loud but my eye’s on the clock and


This ride is gonna meet you
This ride is gonna greet you
This ride is gonna move your soul


Simply evident
The way that we’re going’s different
Shake up the status quo
Working on things like learning how to let go


This ride is gonna reach you
This ride is gonna teach you
To loosen the grip on what you hold


Ready for the ride
Getting ready for the ride
The ride home


Take stock, represent
Be wise I will not be ignorant
Enter the mystic zone
With oil in my lamp
And the light of my lamp on


This ride ain’t gonna leave you
This ride is gonna lead you
Fully aware to what’s unknown


Now and then I see
It’s coming round again
It’s coming round again
It’s coming round again
And in a while we’ll see
We’re truly travelling ...

Only You


I can only sing this song with You
You are the melody shining through
No one keeps tune the way You do
I can only sing this song with You


I can only walk this way with You
You are the rhythm riding through
No one goes with me like You do
I can only walk this way with You


My love, my hope, my shelter
My everything
My heart, my soul, my spirit
Can only walk with You


I can only live this life with You
You are the energy shining through
No one inspires me like You do
I can only live this life with You


My love, my hope, my comfort
My everything
My heart, my soul, my spirit
Can only live with You


I can only breathe this breath with You
You are the air that’s flowing through
Nothing sustains me like You do
I can only breathe this breath with You


My love my hope my Jesus
My everything
My heart my soul my spirit
Can only breathe with You


I will leave this life with only You
You are eternity shining through
Nothing will last the way You do
I will leave this life with only You


My love, my hope, my Jesus,
My everything
My heart, my soul, my spirit
Will leave with only You

Angel that knows


In the very familiar castle of my skin
There’s a war going on and I know who will win
Still it is not easy, I get doubting sometimes
When the bombs go off and the bullets fly


There are thieves in the temple and they’re looking for gold
Desecrating the altar, got their eyes on my soul
Can be intimidating on the shadowy side
Still the struggle is worth the trouble I find


Always will I watch and ever will I be
Standing on the Rock, looking out, looking in
Seeking ’til I find and searching ’til I see
The angel that knows the devil in me


There are a myriad of motives when my heart is exposed
Passions oh so sneaky, got to stay on my toes
It’s a challenge I tell ya, give me strength for the fight
When my faith moves up to the firing line


Clouds of dust in the ruins, smoke is thick in my eyes
See it rising like incense on the wings of the night
But the war ain’t over though the battle is done
Keep me on my guard ’til the kingdom comes

History


Before the world began or my parents had a clue
I twinkled in Your eye
Then reached my mother’s womb
You put me there brought me to being
There You knew and shaped me
The day of my birth I didn’t know a thing
But Your hand was on me


Long time, long time, You watched over me
Long time, long time, we’ve got history


All through my infancy
Right through the childhood years
All through my growing pains
And through the teenage tears
In every step along the way I had Your protection
In every age up ’til today, You’ve been ever present


Long time, long time ...


When I was 1, when I was 2,
When I was 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 years old
8, 9, when I was 10,
When I was 11, 12, 13, 14 years old
From 1, when I was 2,
When I was 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 years old
8, 9, when I was 10,
When I was 11, 12, 13, 14 years old


On and on and on through the years;
Constantly, constantly
I’m not as grateful as I should be;
Constantly, constantly
The fact that I’m here is testimony;
Constantly, constantly
Of how You have been faithful to me


And I know You’re gonna stay
Right by my side now and always

Mogadishu


Fatima has fallen down again
Face down in the dust on the tracks
Of the Mogadishu plains
There where the crops are not growing
There where the rain’s not coming
She don’t know where this is gonna end


Fatima is bravely struggling on
Left two children behind to try
To save the smallest one
What a choice to have to make
It haunts her each step she takes
But she had to take the chance
For the baby’s sake


Now every crumb, every drop, every coin,
Everything we could do without
It’s every one of these little things
That would make a big difference now
I say Whoa oh oh
Is that how it goes, is that how it goes


Fatima is stumbling on again
Though she’s starving, worn and weak,
strength coming to an end
Still carrying her precious one
She faints in the blistering sun
It’ll be over soon if help won’t come


Now every crumb, every drop, every coin,
Everything we could do without
It’s every one of these little things
That would make a huge difference now
I say Whoa oh oh
Is that how it goes, is that how it goes


Hugging her child, barely alive
Checking all the time if he’s still breathing
In our daily grind
Tell me what compares to this


Fatima is rising up again
Her spirit now free to fly over all the suffering
Will at least one of her children be
Her lineage, her legacy
Or will they soon soar to meet her in the wind


Now every crumb, every drop, every coin,
Everything we could do without
It’s every one of these little things
That would make all the difference now
I say Whoa oh oh
Is that how it goes, is that how it goes

Time for change


Dreaming the dream, praying the prayers
Keeping the faith, facing the fear
Uprising, a quest for freedom
New wind blowing across the region


Hoping the hope, fighting the fight
Long was the wait, dark was the night
Great hope but no illusions
Taking in scenes from a revolution yeah
There’s a chance in the air


We are the ones, time for change
Well, are you ready for change


One in the cause, joined in the cry
Breaking the bars, turning the tide
Peace, power and liberation
Gonna need tons of determination


Carry the torch for those who have died
Sensing that things are different this time
Hold tight, the system’s shaking
We’re living history in the making yeah
Seems like the moment is here

Travelling


Though we strive to be ten feet tall
That’s not just what the journey’s for
We be here, we rise, we fall
And we keep on travelling
We’re all dust at the end of the day
But it won’t end here, no way
Like the dust we’ll rise again
And we keep on travelling


While I’m busy writing my story
Hungry for a taste of the glory
Am I missing something, truly missing something
More than gold, the grind, the ambition
The purpose in me is higher than heaven
Am I missing something, truly missing something


Though we strive to be ten feet tall
That’s not just what the journey’s for
We be here, we rise, we fall
And we keep on travelling
Though we’re dust at the end of the day
We won’t settle here, no way
Like the dust we’ll rise again
And we keep on travelling


They challenge me, these times that we live in
Emergency – the war and the famine
Am I missing something,
Truly missing something
Still we stride this earth barely considering
The gifts and the Giver of all that we’re given
Am I missing something, truly missing something


The permanent and the passing
We seek what is lasting
Whatever we’re doing, wherever we’re going
The way that we’re living is our decision
There’s much more to life and
There’s much more to living


Not taking it lightly, I’m using it wisely
I live all my life in praise of Almighty
See when you’re enlightened
No need to be frightened
And we come and we go confident right up to the end


Rise we fall, moving on, through it all
We’re travelling

Under my skin


I was drifting,
Seeking, searching
You intrigued me
So I let You in
Now You’re the heart of me


Living lighter
Now that You’re under my skin
I am never ever
Turning back again


You’ve been given my permission
Come on and take me over
You can have you way
You’re just what I need


Though there’re times
When I pray through the tears
I breathe the breath of air that is Your care
I’m never gonna quit,
Never gonna give You up
How I cherish the treasure You be
Crucial You in the making of me
Never gonna quit,
Never gonna give You up

Without you


You’ve become the friend
Central to my being
Indispensable
Key to my existence
It’s true
I wouldn’t be without You


Got Your Spirit for
Every situation
Close and personal
No matter what I’m going through
I wouldn’t be without You


I have no photograph
No hand to hold on to
But if you’d ever ask
I would not be here
Never would be without You


Take you by Your word
Deep inside I’ve got it
Written in my heart
So I find it anytime I’m wanting to
I wouldn’t be without you


I cannot see your face
Still there’s no substitute
Concealed but always there
I would not be here
Never would be without you


And I, I will not pretend
I wish that I could see You – indeed
Meet you in the flesh
Feel Your rhythm wrapped around me…


Let the people talk, let them call me crazy
Waltzing through this world
You see I don’t mind being known
As the woman who
Just wouldn’t be without You


So let the music play
We’ll dance this whole life through
Making it loud and clear
I would not be here
Never would be without you


Friend for life though You’re out of sight
You’re with me alright
I never would be without You

Life goes on


Here’s the fated hour
This unwelcomed time
Where there’s no pretending
Where we draw a line
Facing a truth that from now on
Defines your life’s journey…and mine


One last look for the moment
I already miss your grace
I see your physical features
But it’s an empty face
If ever I wondered now I know for sure
That you are in a better place


It weighs my heart, fills my head
Trust me – This is taking so much more
Than I could ever imagine
It rips me up, breaks me down
I’m torn apart
But I’m holding to the faith we share
And I am still believing
Life goes on


When this goodbye’s over
How do I go home
Ladened with my memories
And a heart like stone
I need the Lord to carry me
God knows I won’t make it on my own


It weighs my heart, fills my head
Truly this is so much harder
Than I could have ever imagined
Why’re you looking for me here,
At what remains, you seem to say
It’s almost like you’re standing next to me
Whispering to me that


Life goes on
It weighs my heart, fills my head
Trust me – This is taking so much more
Than I could ever imagine
Why’re you looking for me here,
At what remains, you seem to say
It’s almost like you’re standing next to me
Whispering to me that
Life goes on

New Beginning


What a day
The present’s here and the past has gone away
The future’s coming and longs to be embraced
Gonna step into it, hope to make it through it


What a tim
With all that’s going on, I’m still alive
Friends have flown and I’ve been left behind
I won’t take it for granted, life is my advantage
’Cause I can change, I can change, I can change
If I’m still breathing


Why not do it
Now seems like the very best place to start
Seems like the very best place to star
Just slide into it
Seems like the very best place to start
Is right here right now
A new beginning


What a chance
To breathe in deep
And savour what I hav
To appreciate who I uniquely am
To magnify my Maker
And credit my Creator
To make a change, be the change,
Fight for change
For the sake of the living


Maybe it’s time to move on
Wouldn’t it be a shame
If this is what I want
But I just stay the sam
This day is beautiful
Today’s the perfect day for change

Never let me down


My joy, my peace
My strength, my shield
My hope, my help, my reason
My comfort and my freedom


My Lord, my life
My source, my light
My love, my king
He’s the One that I believe in


God will not let me down
No, never let me down


He comes, He saves
He waits, He stays
He lives, He reigns
He is the Truth, the Way


Won’t forget me
Won’t mislead me
Won’t forsake or ever leave me
Much too vast to be repeated
He’s unchanging, undefeated


God will not let me down
No, never let me down


El Shaddai, Elohim
Adonai, worship Him
Yahweh Jireh, Yahweh Nissi
Yahweh Shammah, Yahweh Rohi


God of justice, Lord of mercy
He who was and ever will be
My Redeemer, my Sustainer
True Companion, Friend forever


God will not let me down
No, never let me down


That is the reason why I’m feeling so secure


He loves me and He’s with me everywhere I go
No matter what, I know that He is in control
He’s on my side and all is well with my soul
Rock of Ages, Lion of Judah
He’s the Alpha and Omega
Rich in mercy, slow to anger
There is no God like Jehovah

Close your eyes


Far beyond what the eye can see
Love is connecting you and me
Remember our love, remember this kiss
Close your eyes and remember this


The first time I saw you I couldn’t get over
What a miracle you are
You are so beautiful
I am so glad we were chosen for each other
Now every night I come and look and kiss
Watching you breathing
I pray that God will keep you safe
I’m right here if you need me, sweet dreams
Love watches over you while you sleep
Goodnight, see you in the morning light


Every time we say goodbye
A piece of me goes with you –
A part of you remains
See you later alligator
You are a part of His wonderful mystical design
Laughing and crying, living, loving,
learning, letting go
I am so so glad we were chosen for each other
You are deep in my heart
If ever you doubt, take a moment, remember this


Time has gone – Time has come
Words can never express how thankful I am that
We were chosen for each other
I would do it all again. I love you. I treasure you.
You have blessed my life
In the most beautiful ways.
Oh God I thank you so much


Now I know it’s time to go
The sun is fading, love will remain
You will be fine, God is watching over us…
