Lyrics – Sing Over Me

Empty hands

When you hold your life tightly in your hands
And it comes crashing down to a death the and
When you suffer loss after loss
And you wonder why did God leave me here to die

 

Chorus

Then lift up your empty hands and God will make away
Then lift up your empty hands and God will make away
Where there is no way no way, where there is no way no way

 

When despair overwhelms you and your strength is gone
And you can’t fix all that is wrong

 

Chorus

Then lift up your empty hands and God will make away
Then lift up your empty hands and God will make away
Where there is no way no way, where there is no way no way

 

Bridge

You see God does his very best work when we at our worst
And when all our self-sufficiency is gone and we lift up empty hands and come
And we lift up empty hands and come

 

Oh, God oh God oh God make away
Where there is no way no way no way
Oh God oh God oh God make away
Where there is no way no way no way

And I’m down on my knees I’m begging you please
Make a way make a way make a way make a way
Make a way make a way make a way make a way

 

Freedom song

I arise singing my freedom song
Yes I rise singing my freedom song
Yes I rise singing my freedom song
I arise, arise

 

Lord, here I am washed in your blood
And Lord, here I am in your beautiful love
And I rise, I rise, I rise

 

Lord, you removed all my guilt and my shame
And I am unmoved when I stand on your name
And I rise, I rise, I rise

 

Chorus

And I arise singing my freedom song
Yes I rise singing my freedom song
Yes, I rise singing my freedom song
I arise, arise

 

Lord, you removed all of my shackles
And I rise from the ashes no longer held captive
And I rise, I rise. I rise

 

 

Bridge

Then I fall on my knees
And my tears aren’t enough
To express my heart for all you done
You have set me free to sing your song
And I rise, I rise, I rise, I rise, I rise

 

Chorus

And I arise singing my freedom song
Yes I rise singing my freedom song
Yes, I rise singing my freedom song
I arise, arise

 

Bridge

And  I fall on my knees
And my tears aren’t enough
To press my heart for all you’ve done
You have set me free to sing your song
And I rise, I rise, I rise,

 

I arise singing my freedom song
Yes I rise singing my freedom song
Yes I rise singing my freedom song
I arise, arise

 

Come and rise and sing your freedom song
Come and rise and sing your freedom song
Come and rise and sing your freedom song
Come and rise

 

 

God blessed the day

 

I was in God’s heart before time began
Created in his image part of his plan
I am not a mistake or here by chance
God saw my unformed body before my days began

 

Chorus

And God blessed the day
Oh, he blessed the day
Yes, he blessed the day I came to be

God wove me together by his own hand
With the right shades of color, fabric and strands

Chorus

And God blessed the day
Oh, he blessed the day
Yes, he blessed the day I came to be

 

Bridge

And I won’t let the lies of the past
Define who I am for I’m created in God’s image
With God’s good thoughts and plans
With God’s good thoughts and plans

 

Chorus

And God blessed the day
Oh, he blessed the day
Yes, he blessed the day I came to be
( 2x)

I was in God’s heart before time began
Created in his image part of his plan

Chorus

And God blessed the day
Oh, he blessed the day
Yes he blessed the day I came to be
(2’X)

 

 

I am learning to Say it is well with my soul (Un-Named song)

 

I wouldn’t trade a trial or a pain
I wouldn’t change a thing written on this page
Not a note not a line not the timing or design

 

Chorus

It is well with my soul
It is well with my soul
You are teaching me to say
It is well with my soul
When the sea billows roll

In whatever state I’m in contentment is my friend
I want my heart to bend in response to Your hand

 

Chorus

It is well with my soul
It is well with my soul
You are teaching me to say
It is well with my soul
When the sea billows roll

 

When the sea billows roll
When the sea billows roll
I am learning to say
I am learning to say
I am learning to sing
It is well with my soul
When the sea billows roll
When the sea billows roll

 

Bridge

When peace like a river attendeth my way
When sorrows like sea billows roll
Whatever my lot Thou hast taught me to say
It is well it is well with my soul

Steams in the desert

 

You’ve sent me streams
Streams in the desert and
joy for my pain hope for my hopelessness
and a joyful refrain

 

You’ve sent me streams
Streams in the desert
where in  brokenness I find you again
for I am yours and you are mine oh Lord
I am yours and you are mine

 

Chorus

So send me streams, streams in the desert
the Valley of Achor for my door of hope
your Word in the wilderness where I can grow
Where I can grow

 

Thank you for this barren desert place
cause everything has been stripped away
and now I see your face, your holy face, your beautiful face

 

(Interlude)

 

So send your streams of love
Send your streams of grace
Send your streams of mercy, peace and strength

 

Oh send me your streams in the desert
Lord then me your streams in the dust
send me the Valley of Achor, for in you alone I do trust

 

So send me your streams, streams in the desert and
Send me your streams, streams in the desert and
Send me your streams Oh Lord

 

 

Least of these

 

I am hungry please feed me
I am thirsty please bring a drink
I am a stranger please take me in

 

And on and on we go and on and on we go

 

I am naked please clothe me
I am sick please bring a cure
I am in prison come visit me

 

And on and on we go and we don’t care to know

 

And when we give to the least of these
Then we are giving Lord to thee
And when we turn our back on the least of these
Then we are turning our backs on thee oh Lord

 

And on and on we go and we don’t care to know

 

I was hungry you did not feed me
I was thirsty you brought no drink
I was a stranger you abandoned me

 

And on and on we go and we don’t care to know
And on and on we go

 

I was naked you did not clothe me
I was sick you brought no cure
I was in prison you rejected me

 

And on and on we go and we don’t care to know
As on and on we go with no love to show

 

And when we give to the least of these
Then we are giving Lord to thee
And when we turn our backs on the least of these
Then we are turning our backs on thee oh Lord

 

And on and on we go and we take no time to know
As on and on we go with no love to show
Lord help us to love you so

 

 

The Race

 

I have failed and fallen flat on my face
Tripped over my feet and filled with disgrace
I’ve done things full of shame and regret
And the enemy of my soul won’t let me forget

 

But is not the end of my race
Cuz there’s God’s forgiveness and grace
So I run run run run yes I run run run
Run in God’s grace

 

God in His love allowed me to fail
It was part of His plan to teach me
I can’t but in Christ
I can run the race cuz there’s God’s forgiveness and grace
So I run run run run yes I run run run run in God’s strength

 

Therefore, I let my sin and pain go in God’s sea of grace
Cuz it doesn’t matter how I started but how I finish the race
Yes how I finish the race yes, how I finish the race

 

Bridge

I press on and lay hold of Christ cuz He has hold of me
I press on forgetting the past, I press on for the goal the prize
My upward call in Jesus Christ, my upward call in Jesus Christ

 

So I run the race cuz there’s God’s forgiveness and grace
So I run run run run, yes I run run run run in God’s grace
Yes I run run run run, yes I run run run run the race

 

 

 

Transformed

 

I’ve spent more time in the shadows than in the sun
More time in the silence than on the run

 

Chorus

But like the worm from its silk threads
I am emerging transformed
So I lift up my eyes and I look unto Jesus
And fly away I’ll fly
So I lift up my eyes and look unto Jesus
And fly away I’ll fly

 

I’ve spent more time in the desert than in the green grass
More time in the winter while spring seemed to pass

 

 

Chorus

But like the worm from its silk threads
I am emerging transformed
So I lift up my eyes and look unto Jesus
And fly away I’ll fly
So I lift up my eyes and look unto Jesus
And fly away I’ll fly

 

Bridge

And now with unveiled faces
Beholding the glory of God
I being transformed in Christ likeness
From glory to glory, I’ll soar and soar oh soar

 

So I lift up my eyes and look unto Jesus
And fly away I’ll fly

 

So I lift up my eyes and look unto Jesus
And fly away I’ll fly

 

So I lift up my eyes and look unto Jesus
And fly away I fly

 

 

Uncover me

 

Oh, God please break my heart I don’t like what I see
There’s sin and hypocrisy arrogance and pride
And many times I want to cover and hide
Does anybody ever want to cover and hide?

 

Chorus

So uncover me Lord uncover me
Uncover me please uncover me
uncover me, uncover me

 

I cover my sin by playing a good Christian
But if anyone could see me if anyone could see
What would they think of me?

 

Chorus

So uncover me oh uncover me
Lord uncover me please uncover me
uncover me, uncover me

 

And if others should see my nakedness and poverty
At least I’d be an honesty and then you can come cover me
In your righteousness in your righteousness in your righteousness

 

Chorus

So uncover me Oh uncover me
Lord uncover me Please uncover me
Uncover me Uncover me

 

And don’t let me go, don’t let me go, don’t let me go

 

Bridge

Cause there is freedom in uncovering
And healing in discovering
That my heart is not recovering
But is being made brand-new

 

So don’t let me go, don’t let me go, don’t let me go

 

And God please break my heart I don’t like what I see
There is sin and hypocrisy arrogance and pride
And many times I want to cover and hide
Does anybody ever want to cover and hide
