"Your Heart is the Sea" Album Lyrics


01. Faithful

Open up

Drop our guard, release your grasp

Surrender control

Our desires

Every hope and every fear

We lay them all down

 

In the tension, we will trust

In our doubt we remember

 

God is faithful, God is faithful to us

We remember

God is faithful, God is faithful to us

He’s always been, and always will be

 

Lift your eyes

Come and see what God has done

And what He’s doing

Sing with joy

Make this place a house of prayer

For God is withus

 

In the waiting, we hold on

In our doubt, we remember

 

God is faithful, God is faithful to us

We remember

God is faithful, God is faithful to us

He’s always been, and always will be

 

He walks with us through the fire

He’s by our side in the storm

He stands with us against the lions

We’ve never once been alone

 

You are faithful, You are faithful to us

You’ve always been,  andalways will be

You are faithful, You are faithful to us

You’ve always been, and always will be

You’ve always been, and always will be


02. Holy

You’re love’s a waterfall

It washes white as snow

It brings the dead to life

And its making all things whole

 

The greatness of our God

Has been made known

We gather by His grace

Around the throne

 

We sing Holy, Holy, Holy You are

Yea we sing Holy, Holy, Holy You are

 

Your love’s burning flame

Refining what is true

Melting our sin and and shame

It’s making our hearts new 

 

The greatness of our God

Has been made known

We gather by His grace

Around the throne

 

We sing Holy, Holy, Holy You are

Yea we sing Holy, Holy, Holy You are

 

By your mighty hand, You draw us near

Breaking our prison chains, casting out fear

Though sin divided us, You made a way

We fall before you now, for all our days

 

We sing Holy, Holy, Holy You are

Yea we sing Holy, Holy, Holy You are

Yea we sing Holy, Holy, Holy You are

Yea we sing Holy, Holy, Holy You are


03. Strong to Save

Your voice is louder

Than the lies of shame

Your love’s the lifeblood

Flowing through our veins

 

Your peace is greater

Than the fears we face

Our lives are covered

In unending grace

 

You’re the hope for us all

We will call on your name

 

You are strong, You’re strong to save

Your love has defeated the grave

In your death we die, in your life we rise

You are strong, You’re strong to save

 

Your truth is constant

Through the darkest day

You’re our foundation

When all else gives way

 

We raise your banner

We sing your praise

We’re finding freedom

In unending grace

 

You’re the hope for us all

We will call on your name

 

You are strong, You’re strong to save

Your love has defeated the grave

In your death we die, in your life we rise

You are strong, You’re strong to save

 

You’re breathing life, into our lungs

You’re speaking love, into our hearts

Emmanuel, we’re not alone

You’re singing over us

You’re singing over us

 

You are strong, You’re strong to save

Your love has defeated the grave

In your death we die, in your life we rise

You are strong, You’re strong to save


04. Praise to the Lord

Praise to the Lord, The Almighty

The King of creation

O my soul praise Him for He is

Thy health and salvation

All ye who hear now to His

Temple draw near

Praise Him in glad adoration

 

Praise to the Lord, who o’er all things

So wondrously reigneth

Shelters thee under His wings, yea

So gently sustaineth

Hast thou not seen

How thy desires have been

Granted in what He ordaineth

 

Praise to the Lord, who doth

Prosper thy work and defend thee

Surely His goodness and mercy here

Daily attend thee

Ponder anew what the Almighty can do

If with His love He be-friend thee

 

 

Praise to the Lord, O let all that is

Within me adore Him

All that hath life and breath

Come now with praises before Him

Let the Amen sound from His people again

Gladly for aye we a-dore Him.

 

 

Praise to the Lord, praise Him

Praise to the Lord, praise Him 


05. Burning Brighter

In your presence, our fear is crumbling

In your freedom, we are awakening

Spirit move in me, use my hands and feet

 

In your power, we come alive again

In your kingdom, You make us citizens

Spirit move in me, use my hands and feet

 

Like a fire burning brighter

Like an anthem getting louder

We’re your people and we’re rising

We’re rising up

 

Like a river overflowing

Like the sunrise in the morning

By your Spirit, we are reaching

We’re reaching out

                                          

For your purpose, we are an offering

To your heartbeat, we are surrendering

Spirit move in me, use my hands and feet

 

Like a fire burning brighter

Like an anthem getting louder

We’re your people and we’re rising

We’re rising up

 

Like a river overflowing

Like the sunrise in the morning

By your Spirit, we are reaching

We’re reaching out

 

Acting justly,  loving mercy

Walking humbly with You, God

 

Like a fire burning brighter

Like an anthem getting louder

We’re your people and we’re rising

We’re rising up

 

Like a river overflowing

Like the sunrise in the morning

By your Spirit, we are reaching

We’re reaching out

 

Acting justly,  loving mercy

Walking humbly with You, God

Acting justly,  loving mercy

Walking humbly with You, God

 

06. Abiding

Greater is the one in me

Than the one who’s in the world

By His pow’r we overcome

In His strengthour vict’ry’s won

 

We’re the daughters and the sons

The beloved of the king

we are found within His arms

In His love a-bid-ing

 

God has shown His perfect love

Sending Jesus to the world

So that we may live through Him 

The atonement for our sin

 

There’s no greater love than this

Than to lay your life down

Christ, who died on our behalf

Trades our sorrow for a crown

 

Let us love each other well

For our God has loved us first

And to love our Father

Is to love our brother

And to love our Father

Is to love our sister

 

By His spirit we will love

Of His mercy we will sing

We are living by His grace

In His love abiding

 

By His spirit we will love

Of His mercy we will sing

We are living by His grace

In His love abiding

In His love abiding


07. Candlelight

I’m looking for rest

I’m looking for calmer waters

Cause it feels like we’re sinking

 

I’m searching for peace

Through all of this war and chaos

Cause it feels like we’re losing

 

We are weary and broken hearted

We are lost and stumbling in the dark

Give us faith to keep us holding on

 

Have mercy on us

Forgive us of our trespasses

Lord hold us together

 

You are near to the brokenhearted

You endure when the world around

Gives way

You’re the hope we have

When hope is gone

 

You are here and you're walking with us

By our side in the midst of all this pain

Give us strength to be the salt and light

 

There is life rising out of the ashes

There is grace and its deeper

Than all of our sin

There is peace and its flowing

From your heart

 

There is light and its piercing the darkness

You and I are like flickers of candlelight

Holding out our hope against the night


08. Living Water

Living Water, fill me up

Let your rainfall overflow my empty cup

Living Water, flood the soil of my heart

So love can grow

 

I am thirsty, I am dry

I am worn out, I am tired

I am broken, I am bruised

I am hurting, I’ve been used

 

You said come to me those who are weary

Lay your burdens down, I will sustain you

Find your rest in me

I’ll give you what you need

And pour out on you

 

Living Water, fill me up

Let your rainfall overflow my empty cup

Living Water, flood the soil of my heart

So love can grow

 

Streams of mercy, rivers of life

Rise in me, rise in me

Wells of grace and fountains of joy

Christ in me, Christ in me

 

Streams of mercy, rivers of life

Rise in me, rise in me

Wells of grace and fountains of joy

Christ in me, Christ in me

 

Living Water, fill me up

Let your rainfall overflow my empty cup

Living Water, flood the soil of my heart

So love can grow

 

Living Water, fill me up

Let your rainfall overflow my empty cup

Living Water, flood the soil of my heart

So love can grow

 

Streams of mercy, rivers of life

Rise in me, rise in me

Wells of grace and fountains of joy

Christ in me, Christ in me

 

Streams of mercy, rivers of life

Rise in me, rise in me

Wells of grace and fountains of joy

Christ in me, Christ in me

Christ in me, it’s Christ in me


09. Your Heart is the Sea

 

Tides, are turning in my chest

My soul searches for more

Out there, beyond the waters edge

Comes a song, a call to explore

 

Waves of the unknown

Crash on the shore

The horizon is calling out

 

Your heart is the sea

Your heart is the sea

Full of life and wonder

Wilder than my dreams

 

Your heart is the sea

Your heart is for me

I could spend forever

Diving in the deep

 

Dawn, crawls across the sky

As my feet, push off the shore

I swim, far beyond the break

Pushing past where I’ve been before

 

Waves of the unknown

Crash over me                

The horizon is calling out

 

Your heart is the sea

Your heart is the sea

Full of life and wonder

Wilder than my dreams

 

Your heart is the sea

Your heart is for me

I could spend forever

Diving in the deep

 

I could chase every compass point

Sailing ‘cross the ocean wide

Spend my life upon the waves

And never reach the other side

 

Your heart is the sea

Your heart is the sea

Full of life and wonder

Wilder than my dreams

 

Your heart is the sea

Your heart is for me

I could spend forever

Diving in the deep


10. Your World

Ashes to gardens

Darkness to light

There is beauty in the broken

Promise through the pain

 

This is Your world

We are not abandoned

This is Your world

Open up our eyes

 

Order from chaos

Life from death

There is purpose in creation

Work here to be done

 

This is Your world

We are not abandoned

This is Your world

Open up our eyes

 

This is Your world

We are not abandoned

This is Your world

Open up our eyes

 

Open up our eyes

Open up our eyes

Open up our eyes

Open up our eyes

 

Ashes to gardens

Darkness to light
