Track Name: Came To My Senses
I took the long road in search of your heart
Its treasure yearns to be found
But I ripped in two what you would impart
I left your grace buried deep in the ground

And I came to my senses
I fell on my knees
I ran out of the deepest valley
from now on I'll trust your guarantees
I Came To My Senses

The floods they came in rapid succession
And poured right toward my frigid feet
But we kept on, now it's gone my obsession
with holding on to a love that's incomplete

And I came to my senses
I fell on my knees
I ran out of the deepest valley
from now on I'll trust your guarantees

Now they're gone, my offenses
all I've done wrong has been seized
'cause you took my soul and ignored the tally
all my wrongs have been put at ease

And I came to my senses
I fell on my knees
I ran out of the deepest valley
from now on I'll trust your guarantees
I Came To My Senses
Track Name: Trust In You
Jesus, you came down from your throne
Exchanged your seat of power for the sinners' home
Perfect one, born to save
Faithful to obey to the grave

O we will trust in you
Your every word is true
So Jesus take our lives and make us new
We'll trust in you

Jesus, by your power, you right our wrongs
Our sin was so deep but your love is strong
Healer of the world, humbled down
Upheld your promises with a thorned crown

O we will trust in you
Your every word is true
So Jesus take our lives and make us new
We'll trust in you

Sin has gripped our weary souls
You've covered us and made us whole
You have overcome the world!

O we will trust in you
Your every word is true
So Jesus take our lives and make us new
We'll trust in you
Track Name: Long Suffering
I don't know why your eyes keep tellin' these lies
That deceive and beat you so soundly
That he only cares once or twice, or when you're down
And just picks you up after a bruisin'

But he'll pick you up, oh
Don't give up on God
Cause he hasn't given up on you
And he's pleased with his own beautiful face
And he'd love to see it on you

Open your eyes, rise and shine and run away
From the past that keeps breaking your heart
Wake up from the dead, you'll find love once again
At the feet of your beautiful maker

He'll pick you up, oh
Don't give up on God
Cause he hasn't given up on you
And he's pleased with his own beautiful face
And he'd love to see it on you

And I'll shout it out from the rooftops on high
That the prince of this world has no grip on your soul
I know nothing can separate you from the father's love
Because it's swift and it's strong and it's patient
Oh he's patient

He'll pick you up
He'll pick you up
He'll pick you up

Don't give up on God
Cause he hasn't given up on you
And he's pleased with his own beautiful face
And he'd love to see it on you
Track Name: Mighty
God, you know my heart's full of joy
When I know your face is near
But you seem so far away when I fail you every
Day and every time that these notes slip away through my
Fingers and out my head where I'm ruled
By all my dread

But you sing to me so sweetly
that this is not the end

Oh my God, you rescue me
There is hope in the blood of your son
Your name is mighty, and I'll never know it's glory
But just a glimpse of the hope that's to be

Heaven's breaking free but still all my
Thoughts are turned towards me
Your love reaches deep and reaches wide and far
Enough to break the depths of my guilt and my pride all my
Hard headed, tight-fisted, bread-breaking while enemy-making
Fake compassion, love-neverlasting
My dirty, ugly mind

But you sing to me so sweetly
that this is not the end

Oh my God, you rescue me
There is hope in the blood of your son
Your name is mighty, and I'll never know it's glory
But just a glimpse of the hope that's to be

Your name is mighty!

But you sing to me so sweetly
Oh you sing to me so sweetly
Oh you sing to me so sweetly
that this is not the end

Oh my God, you rescue me
There is hope in the blood of your son
Jesus, your name is mighty, and I'll never know it's glory
But just a glimpse of the hope that's to be
Track Name: The Fight
I see you're not pleased with how things have gone
Your heart was empty and bare for too long
You lost your focus, your mind and your sight
As the warm glow of love turned into night

My advice though too little and too late
Take a deep breath, I know why you failed
Through your mistakes, the truth is unveiled
The shadows are gone, I know you'll do what's right
There's beauty to find, and that's why you fight

Your foolish eyes missed the signs on the wall
You opened her heart without heeding the call
Loving yourself might have felt so right
But it brings out the darkness and pierces the light

My advice though too little and too late
Take a deep breath, I know why you failed
Through your mistakes, the truth is unveiled
The shadows are gone, I know you'll do what's right
There's beauty to find, and that's why you fight

Now you've seen
the beautiful heart that you've always longed for
Now you've felt
The breadth of your soul, yeah it's reaching for more
Now you've missed
the chance to love like never before

Take a deep breath, I know why you failed
Through your mistakes, the truth is unveiled
The shadows are gone, I know you'll do what's right
There's beauty to find, and that's why you fight

Take a deep breath, I know why you failed
Through your mistakes, the truth is unveiled
The shadows are gone, I know you'll do what's right
There's beauty to find, and that's why you fight
Track Name: Speak Your Word
Oh my soul
My soul
My soul
It longs for you

There is hope
Deep inside
Waiting to
Be made alive
So I'll set
The spirit free
I'll know the son
Risen in me

So Jesus speak your word
Into this empty earth
Won't you turn the formless void
Into life, into rebirth
Track Name: The Road Home
He takes a shot and breaks the window
The basket-case is loose and I know
That shackling a dead man twice
Never lets him see the price of his sin
So again I'm free to unfold
And a slave to the same old

I will take the blame if it's all the same
What's a wretch worth?
Am I worthy to be your son?

It's a long road home
Broken and torn
From the priceless joy I spent on myself
And the word you promised brings me hope
That you'll still know my name
I'll never be the same

Can a father recognize
A son so poor, his face in dirt disguised
The smell of death and hate surround
My schizophrenic, wicked lies
I'm misguided
I don't know where the light is, even though it's right before me

I will take the blame if it's all the same
What's a wretch worth?
Am I worthy to be your son?

It's a long road home
Broken and torn
From the priceless joy I spent on myself
And the word you promised brings me hope
That you'll still know my name

I need to love you the way you love me

It's a long road home
Broken and torn
From the priceless joy I spent on myself
And the word you promised brings me hope
That you'll still know my name
I'll never be the same
Track Name: The Least of These
Lord, you heal
the sick and the blind
Oh God give us
a heart to find

The broken and hurting
And their chains that bind
We want to serve the least of these because
We want to serve you

Lord, you love
and hold your children
Give us a heart to do your will
A heart that sacrifices still

For the broken and hurting
With your love that fills
We want to love the least of these because
We want to serve you

"Lord, when did we feed you?
Lord, when did we provide?"
He said, "When you held their hand,
you were really holding mine"

Lord, you heal
the sick and the blind
Oh God give us
a heart to find

The broken and hurting
And their chains that bind
We want to serve the least of these because
We want to serve you

Lord, you love
and hold your children
Give us a heart to do your will
A heart that sacrifices still

For the broken and hurting
With your love that fills
We want to love the least of these because
We want to serve you
Track Name: If You've Never Been Loved
If you've never been loved
How can you know
a marriage apart from divorce
and if you've never been loved
how can you show
even a hint of remorse

but listen my friend
I'll come again
at any time that you need
just to prove to you beyond all your doubts
that you've truly been freed

I know you've never been loved
I won't make a sound
I want you to know, I'm all ears
and if you've never been loved
We can turn things around
We'll forget all of your fears

but listen my friend
there's a light at the end
No the truth cannot be deceived
And I'll prove to you that beyond all your doubts
that you've truly been freed

You might feel let down
but just know that i'm right here by your side
And you might feel like you've been torn into pieces
too small to recognize

But you've always been loved!
You've always been loved!

Healing is coming your way
Your Father, he knows your name
