Track Name: You Know My Name
Chorus: You know my name. You know my pain and your love is enough to wash away all my shame.

Vs.1 Well Ive been sufferin’ for much too long. Hurt too many people, no wonder their all gone. God Almighty, let me see. Cuz Ive been groping in the dark with the damaging memories.
Vs.2 Holy Spirit, return to me. Heal my heart and please set me free, from the bondage of my past. Show me how to love yeah show me how to make it last.

Bridge: Ohhh, and I know….
Ohhhh, that I need to grow…
Chorus #2: (play chords twice before lyrics)
And theres times that I wonder, wonder what Im doin here.
In those times I feel so sad, yes I have some fears.
But I feel you by my side, yes Im alive…and Im ready to learn from you my God, please come inside…(I wont hide)…
Track Name: Take Us Higher
Vs.1: What I know about You, is that You’ll always love me, no matter what I do and sometimes I’m a fool. What I know about You, blows my mind ‘cause I see it all come true! Yeah Your Word is true.
Prechorus: Even in the darkness, I can see a light. You lift me up to new heights!
CHORUS: What I know about You is Your everything. Your Spirit sets my heart on fire. I can hear all of creation sing, “lift our lives and take us higher!” Higher
Vs.2: What I know about You, is not enough, I keep on searchin’, diggin’ for wisdom. What I know about You, gives me a life of integrity and simplicity.

Track Name: God Of Glory
Joyful joyful we adore thee God of glory Lord of love. Hearts unfold like flowers before thee, opening to the sun above. Melt the clouds of sin and sadness, drive the dark of doubt away. Giver of immortal gladness, fill us with the light of day!

Chorus: We adore thee God of glory! We adore thee God of glory! Lord of love, we will sing-we adore thee, we adore thee…

All the works with joy surround thee. Earth and heaven reflect thy rays. Stars and angels sing around thee, center of unbroken praise. Field and forest, vale and mountain, flowery meadow flashing sea. Chanting bird and flowing fountain call us to rejoice in thee!

Chorus: repeat
Bridge: (instrumental)

Mortals join the happy chorus which the morning stars began. Father love is reigning o’er us, brother love binds man to man. Ever singing, march we onward-victors in the midst of strife! Joyful music leads us sunward, in the triumph song of Life!
Track Name: Top of the Mountain
Jesus at the top of the mountain, I was in the valley below and He invited me upward, I will nourish your soul. I decided to climb that mountain, though the path was narrow and steep. but the promises of the savior, I knew he would keep.
Come to the top of the mountain, come to the valley below. Come to the top of the mountain. I will nourish your soul.
He went before me behind me and sometimes he held my hand. As I stumbled up the pathway to the lords promised land. It seemed I would never get there but Jesus was oh so kind. He said, do not be discouraged, I will show which path to find.
Don't give in to the darkness. Keep your eyes on me above. These words of the savior were spoken, in truth, power and love. Though my body grew weary, inside I was being renewed. There was peace, joy and fulfillment. My saviors face I viewed.
Chorus two times
