Born for This – Esther – Mandisa

Feels like I’ve been holding my breath, trying to still my restless heart.
Everything hangs on my next step, finding my nerve, playing my part.
I found shelter underneath His crown, found favor inside His eyes.
Rock this boat, and I just might drown, honesty seems to come with a price.
There’s a time to hold your tongue, time to keep your head down.
There’s a time but it’s not now.

Sometimes you gotta go, uninvited.
Sometimes you gotta speak when you don’t have the floor.
Sometimes you gotta move, when everybody else says you should stay.
No way, no, not today.
You gotta ask, if you want an answer.
Sometimes you gotta stand apart from the crowd.
Long before your heart could run the risk.
You were born for this.
You were born for this.

I’m leaning on the ones before me, my father’s father’s dreams.
I’m standing on the top of their shoulders calling the One delivering me.
There’s a time to hold your tongue, time to keep your head down.
There’s a time but it’s not now.

Sometimes you gotta go, uninvited.
Sometimes you gotta speak when you don’t have the floor.
Sometimes you gotta move, when everybody else says you should stay.
No way, no, not today.
You gotta ask, if you want an answer.
Sometimes you gotta stand apart from the crowd.
Long before your heart could run the risk.
You were born for this.
You were born for this.

One step, one move.
Born to trust You.
Made to lay my.
Life before You.

Sometimes you gotta go, uninvited.
Sometimes you gotta speak when you don’t have the floor.
Sometimes you gotta move, when everybody else says you should stay.
No way, no, not today.
You gotta ask, if you want an answer.
Sometimes you gotta stand apart from the crowd.
Long before your heart could run the risk.

You were born for this. 5 X

Good Morning – Mandisa

Wave away my yesterday
Cause I’m leaving it behind me.
Hello sunshine, come what may.
I feel something new inside me.
I hear the birds singing
Now my alarm’s ringing
Get up, get up, hey!

It’s a good morning!
Wake up to a brand new day
This morning,
I’m stepping, stepping on my way
Good morning,
You give me strength,
You give me just what I need
And I can feel the hope that’s rising in me.
It’s a good morning

Slow down, breathe in,
Don’t move ahead
I’m just living in this moment
I’ve got my arms raised, un-phased
Jump out of bed
Gotta get this party going
I went to bed dreaming,
You woke me up singing
Get up, get up, hey!

It’s a good morning!
Wake up to a brand new day
This morning,
I’m stepping, stepping on my way
Good morning,
You give me strength,
you give me just what I need
And I can feel the hope that’s rising up in me.
It’s a good morning

Now I’m smiling, and I’m kissing all my worries goodbye
Got the feeling, if I spread my wings I might even fly
You are my truth, my way
Give me the strength to say
Get up, get up, get up
Cause it’s a good morning, hey

Mr. Mac to the mic

In the morning.

Wake up to a brand new day

Somebody’s Angel – Mandisa

They say this is the best time of the year.
And for most of us that’s probably how it feels.
But what about the ones left alone.
And all the people hurting.
Looking for a glimpse of hope.

We could be that shining light.
To show the heart of Christmas time.
People need love.
And we all are able.
So take some time and start today.
To give some joy and hope away.
‘Cause you might be.
You might be.
Somebody’s angel.

We run and run.
We fill our schedules up.
The gifts, the rush.
Consume us all so much.
Salvation army Santa’s ringing his bell.
Giving us a little reminder.
There’s a world that needs our help.

We could be that shining light.
To show the heart of Christmas time.
People need love.
And we all are able.
So take some time and start today.
To give some joy and hope away.
‘Cause you might be.
You might be.
Somebody’s angel.

This Christmas.
Don’t miss it.
The chance to love someone right where they are.
Don’t miss it.
Don’t miss it.

We could be that shining light.
To show the heart of Christmas time.
People need love.
And we all are able.
So take some time and start today.
To give some joy and hope away.
‘Cause you might be.
You might be.
Somebody’s angel.

‘Cause you might be, somebody’s.
Christmas angel.
Somebody’s Christmas angel.

What Child is This? – Mandisa

What child is this, who laid to rest
On Mary’s lap is sleeping
Whom angels greet with anthems sweet
While shepherds watch are keeping

This, this is christ, the king
Whom shepherds guard and angels sing
Haste, haste to bring him praise
The babe, the son of Mary

So bring him incense, hold and myrrh
Come peasant king to own him
The king of kings, salvation brings
Let loving hearts enthrone him

Raise, raise a song on high
The virging sings her lullaby
Joy, joy for christ is born
The babe, the son of Mary

This, this is christ, the king
Whom shepherds guard and angels sing
Haste, haste to bring him praise
The babe, the son of Mary.

Stronger – Mandisa

Hey, heard you were up all night.
Thinking about how your world ain’t right.
And you wonder if things will ever get better.
And you’re asking why is it always raining on you.
When all you want is just a little good news.
Instead of standing there stuck out in the weather.

Oh, don’t hang your head.
It’s gonna end.
God’s right there.
Even if it’s hard to see Him.
I promise you that He still cares.

When the waves are taking you under.
Hold on just a little bit longer.
He knows that this is gonna make you stronger, stronger.
The pain ain’t gonna last forever.
And things can only get better.
Believe me.
This is gonna make you stronger.
Gonna make you stronger, stronger, stronger.
Believe me, this is gonna make you …

Try and do the best you can.
Hold on and let Him hold your hand.
And go on and fall into the arms of Jesus.
Oh, lift your head it’s gonna end.
God’s right there.
Even when you just can’t feel Him.
I promise you that He still cares.

‘Cause if He started this work in your life.
He will be faithful to complete it.
If only you believe it.
He knows how much it hurts.
And I’m sure that He’s gonna help you get through this.

When the waves are taking you under.
Hold on just a little bit longer.
He knows that this is gonna make you stronger, stronger.
The pain ain’t gonna last forever.
In time it’s gonna get better.
Believe me.
This is gonna make you stronger.

I Need a Miracle – Third Day

Well, late one night, she started to cry and thought he ain’t coming home
She was tired of the lies, tired of the fight, but she didn’t want to see him go
She fell on her knees and said, “I haven’t prayed since I was young
But Lord above I need a miracle”
Well no matter who you are and no matter what you’ve done
There will come a time when you can’t make it on your own
And in your hour of desperation
Know you’re not the only one, praying
Lord above, I need a miracle
I need a miracle
He lost his job and all he had in the fall of ’09
Now he feared the worst, that he would lose his children and his wife
So he drove down deep into the woods and thought he’d end it all
And prayed, “Lord above, I need a miracle”
Well no matter who you are and no matter what you’ve done
There will come a time when you can’t make it on your own
And in your hour of desperation
Know you’re not the only one, praying
Lord above, I need a miracle
I need a miracle
La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la
Whoa oh
La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la
Whoa oh
He turned on the radio to hear a song for the last time
He didn’t know what he was looking for or even what he’d find
The song he heard gave him hope and strength to carry on
And on that night, they found a miracle
They found a miracle
La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la
Whoa oh
La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la
Whoa oh
In your hour of desperation
Know you’re not the only one, praying
Lord above, I need a miracle
I need a miracle

Tired of the fight

Undertow – Holly Starr

Addicted to this habit
I pretend that I don’t have it
Right now it’s hurting more than ever before
I fall down I’m gonna hit the bottom floor
I can’t do this anymore

This isn’t easy
Fighting these feelings
I try but i’m caught in the undertow
You are my rescue
I’m numb from my black and blue
I try but i’m caught in the undertow
Pull me up
Out of the undertow

Break down what I can’t let go
Shut out the fears that haunt
Times up, I can’t hold my breath anymore
Speak now, Your words will bring me back to the shore

More – Matthew West

Take a look at the mountains
Stretching a mile high
Take a look at the ocean
Far as your eye can see
And think of Me

Take a look at the desert
Do you feel like a grain of sand?
I am with you wherever
Where you go is where I am

And I’m always thinking of you
Take a look around you
I’m spelling it out one by one

[Chorus]
I love you more than the sun
And the stars that I taught how to shine
You are mine, and you shine for me too
I love you yesterday and today
And tomorrow, I’ll say it again and again
I love you more

Just a face in the city
Just a tear on a crowded street
But you are one in a million
And you belong to Me

And I want you to know
That I’m not letting go
Even when you come undone

[Chorus]
I love you more than the sun
And the stars that I taught how to shine
You are mine, and you shine for me too
I love you yesterday and today
And tomorrow, I’ll say it again and again
I love you more
I love you more

Shine for Me
Shine for Me
Shine on, shine on
Shine for Me

[Chorus]
I love you more than the sun
And the stars that I taught how to shine
You are mine, and you shine for me too
I love you yesterday and today
And tomorrow, I’ll say it again and again
I love you more

[Chorus]
Than the sun
and the stars that I taught how to shine
You are mine, and you shine for me too
I love you, yesterday and today
Through the joy and the pain
I’ll say it again and again
I love you more
I love you more

And I see you
And I made you
And I love you more than you can imagine
More than you can fathom
I love you more than the sun
And you shine for me

I Love You Anyway – Holly Starr

I don’t got much to say but that I love you anyway
We all have those times in our lives when we really wanna believe the lies
It really hurt me when you thought I wasn’t perfect
but I’m sorry I can’t give you everything
Just because your life’s not like mine doesn’t mean I have more than you, more than you
So I love you anyway, anyway
I love you anyway
I love you anyway
I will remember all the times we shared together
and I will remember all the tears that fell from my eyes
Seventy minutes on the phone is a long time
but God has a reason for you to be in my life
There will be times I remember the things that you did to me
but I will move on and leave that for my history
