Track Name: Wait For You
How long now, until You come
Until we see You, as the Eternal Son
Just like the evening for the morning sun
We wait for You

There will be a day when we are one
Together in a city made of pure gold
And we will be forever in Your love
I just want to be with You my God
I just want to be with You forever
In the glory and the beauty of Your love

I know God, You will surely come
You have promised, and You’re the faithful one
So hear the Spirit and the bride say “come”
We wait for You

Then when You come,
The Bridegroom and bride will be one
There’ll be no need for the sun
‘Cause You will be the light
Then when we meet
There’ll be the greatest of feasts
Your face I will finally see
As You wipe the tears from my eyes
Track Name: Fullness Of God
We are citizens of a heavenly home
This life that we now live, is no longer our own
‘Cause we’re living for the King of Glory
Our lives laid down will tell His story

He is the image of the invisible God
He made all things on Earth and Heaven above
The firstborn over all creation
The ruler over all the nations
In Him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell
Through Him, He will reconcile all things to Himself

And He’ll never change
From age to age He stays the same
Eternal, surpassing
His love’s everlasting

He’ll never change
From age to age He stays the same
He’s steadfast, unchanging
His love’s never ending
Track Name: One Day With You
How lovely is Your dwelling place
My soul is crying out to be with You
Oh for one more glimpse, to see Your face
I was made to be with You

One day with You
Is better than anything I could ever do

My soul thirsts for You, and You alone
Lord, nothing in this world could satisfy
‘Til I stand in awe, before Your throne
And see that fire burning in Your eyes

One day with You
Is better than anything I could ever do

Now that You’ve brought me
Into Your family
I can finally call You my Father God
There’s nothing better
There’s no greater treasure
Than just to be with You my Father God
Track Name: To The Highest Place
Before the earth was made You were living
And over every heart You’ve been singing
Your very word spoke life into being
You even give the breath we are breathing

And now, we sing our songs back to You
Oh Lord, we gladly lay down our lives at Your feet
We take the breath You gave
And we give it back in praise
You are exalted to the highest place
You have the name above all other names

Stepping down into a world You made
The uncreated God in a human frame
Creator dwelling with creation
You made Yourself of no reputation

And You made Yourself nothing for us
And You gave up Your life for the least of men
You entered the gates of death
But rose with the keys in Your hands

There is no one like You, There is none besides You
Track Name: Who Is Like Our God
Who was in the beginning before time began?
Who holds all of creation in the palm of His hand?

My Father, He is the one who sustains all things
He is the source, the Creator of everything

Who’s thoughts toward me outnumber the sand?
Who has given Him wisdom?
Who has made Him understand?
He sees all things, He knows all things
He sees all things, He knows all things

Who is like our God in all of the earth?
Who is like our God in all of the earth?

He is holy, He is holy
He is worthy, He is worthy

Fill me with the knowledge of You God
(Let me behold more of You God)
Open my heart to Your truth God
(I have to have more of You God)

You are holy, You are holy
You are worthy, You are worthy
Track Name: A Love That Carries Me
What love is this!
Fighting for my heart when I lose my grip
Rescuing my life from a sinking ship
You deliver me

‘Cause I was dead in my sin
Struggling ‘til You came and You brought me in
Giving me a new chance to begin, and live again

I love, I love, I love
‘Cause You first loved me, ‘cause You first loved me
I sing, I sing, I sing,
‘Cause You sing over me, ‘cause You sing over me

You are my strength
Faithful from the start and You have no end
A perfect Father and a perfect friend
You will always be
‘Cause You have hold of my life
From the moment I am born ‘til the day I die
Nothing else could truly satisfy me like You Lord

A love so strong, I can hardly understand it
A grace so deep, I can hardly comprehend it

Now I am held by a love that carries me
Now I am held by a love that carries me

What can I give to You Lord?
I pour out all my love
What can I bring to You but my life laid down for You?
Track Name: High Priest
Oh the humility of a King inside a manger
Our shepherd and our saviour on the cross
You gave Your life for me
Now, how can I repay You?
All the riches I could gain are not enough

You are the Prince of Peace
You’re our great high priest
You have made a way for me
You have set me free

You got thirsty, You got tired
You were tempted, You were tried
And You can fully sympathise
Cause You know just what it’s like to live this life
Fully God and fully man, who can fully comprehend the mystery?

You are the Prince of Peace
You’re our great high priest
You have made a way for me
You have set me free
I’ve found freedom in You Jesus
There is nothing in between us

You turn mourning into dancing
And sorrow into joy, oh Lord
Track Name: Home
I will wait for You, I will wait for You
Knowing that You will draw near to me

I was made for You, I was made for You
I was made to be in Your presence

Here, oh Lord, I have made a place
For You to fill, so come and have Your way

You’re the one I want, You’re the one I want
You’re the one my heart cries out for

This is not my home, This is not my home
This is only temporary

But You oh Lord, will never fade away
I’ll be home when I see Your face

Now I’ve found my place in Your house
Track Name: Lift Up My Eyes
Waking up to the sunrise
To the golden light and blue skies
I’m in awe of creation
Of Your glory and salvation
All around, it is true, creation’s crying out to You
With songs of joy and hymns of praise
To the one who made all things

So I turn away now from all worthless things
I will lift up (lift up) my eyes (my eyes)
And I choose to look on the beautiful king
I will lift up (lift up) my eyes (my eyes)

When I’m lost in the darkness
When I feel so weak and helpless
You’re my rock, You’re my fortress
You’re the peace when I feel restless

When my enemies surround
You’re my firm and solid ground
In the flood, or on the sea
Like an ark You carry me

Oh, With storms all around
My feet upon the solid ground
I will not be shaken cause I know that

You, You are, You are
All that I needed
And You, You are, You are
All that I wanted
And You, You are, You are
The only one that satisfies me
That satisfies me

I will lift up my eyes
Track Name: The Eternal Son
This life is just a fleeting shadow
I realise that life is found in You alone

Until my heart has found its home
With all the saints before Your throne
I’ll live my life for You alone
‘Cause You call me Your own

You shine brighter than the brightest sun
Your light endures when all is said and done

You’re the lion, You’re the lamb
The first and last, The Great I Am
The Son of God, the Son of Man
With wounds in Your hands

Forever, oh Lord, You will be the Eternal Son
Track Name: You Know My Name
You’ve numbered every hair on my head
And You know my every thought
And You know my every thought

My name is on the palm of Your hand
And Your hands they hold the stars
And Your hands they hold the stars

Though You’re infinite in wisdom
Powerful and mighty
Still You call me Your friend
Though You’re seated in the heavens
King over creation
Still you call me Your friend

I have cried out and You have heard me
You know my name, You know my name
I was lost and
Then You came and found me
You know my name, You know my name

Your perfect love is better than life
And Your mercy never ends
And Your mercy never ends
Like a Father You have opened Your arms
And You’ve called me back again
And You’ve called me back again

You see me
You hear me
You know me God
(And Your thoughts cannot be numbered)
Track Name: Jesus, Your Blood
Pierced for my transgressions
Wounded for my sins
This man of sorrows came to take my place

King over creation
Slain for my salvation
Unspeakable love, abounding grace

Now I am coming to this holy place
I am drawing near to seek Your face

Jesus, Your blood has made my hands clean
So I will not hide my face from You

You have won the victory
You have paid the cost
While I was still in sin You died for me

Carrying my sorrows
Lifting off my shame
Bearing all my sin to set me free

I will ascend the hill of the Lord
‘Cause You have rescued me
