  1. Testify To Love

    Avalon - Testify To Love

    All the colors of the rainbow
    All of voices of the wind
    Every dream that reaches out
    That reaches out to find where love begins
    Every word of every story
    Every star in every sky
    Every corner of creation lives to testify

    For as long as I shall live
    I will testify to love
    I'll be a witness in the silences when words are not enough
    With every breath I take I will give thanks to God above
    For as long as I shall live
    I will testify to love


    From the mountains to the valleys
    From the rivers to the sea
    Every hand that reaches out
    Every hand that reaches out to offer peace
    Every simple act of mercy
    Every step to kingdom come
    All the Hope in every heart will speak what love has done

    Chorus
    Chorus
     
  2. Here is a good one for you:

    If We Are The Body Lyrics
    Artist(Band):Casting CROWNS


    It's crowded in worship today
    As she slips in
    Trying to fade into the faces
    The girls' teasing laughter is carrying farther than they know
    Farther than they know

    CHORUS
    But if we are the Body
    Why aren't His arms reaching
    Why aren't His hands healing
    Why aren't His words teaching
    And if we are the Body
    Why aren't His feet going
    Why is His love not showing them there is a way
    There is a way

    A traveler is far away from home
    He sheds his coat
    And quietly sinks into the back row
    The weight of their judgmental glances tells him that his chances
    Are better out on the road

    CHORUS
    But if we are the Body
    Why aren't His arms reaching
    Why aren't His hands healing
    Why aren't His words teaching
    And if we are the Body
    Why aren't His feet going
    Why is His love not showing them there is a way

    Jesus paid much too high a price
    For us to pick and choose who should come
    And we are the Body of Christ

    Chorus (2x)
    If we are the body
    Why aren't His arms reaching
    Why aren't His hands healing
    Why aren't His words teaching
    And if we are the body
    Why aren't His feet going
    Why is His love not showing them there is a way

    Jesus is the way
     
  3. Here's one of my favorites:

    The Old Account Was Settled

    Words & Music: Frank H. Graham, 1902

    There was a time on earth, when in the book of Heav’n
    An old account was standing for sins yet unforgiv’n;
    My name was at the top, and many things below,
    I went unto the Keeper, and settled long ago.

    Refrain

    Long ago (down on my knees), long ago (I settled it all),
    Yes, the old account was settled long ago (Hallelujah!);
    And the record’s clear today, for He washed my sins away,
    When the old account was settled long ago.



    The old account was large, and growing every day,
    For I was always sinning, and never tried to pay;
    But when I looked ahead, and saw such pain and woe,
    I said that I would settle, I settled long ago.

    Refrain

    When at the Judgment Bar, I stand before my King,
    And He, the book will open and cannot find a thing,
    Then my heart will be glad, while tears of joy will flow,
    Because I had it settled, and settled it long ago.

    Refrain

    O sinner, seek the Lord, repent of all your sin,
    For thus He has commanded if you will enter in;
    And then if you should live a hundred years below,
    Up there you’ll not regret it, you settled long ago.

    Refrain
     
  4. king without a crown - matisyahu [album: youth]

    You're all that I have and you're all that I need
    Each and every day I pray to get to know you please
    I want to be close to you, yes I'm so hungry
    You're like water for my soul when it gets thirsty
    Without you there's no me
    You're the air that I breathe
    Sometimes the world is dark and I just can't see
    With these, demons surround all around to bring me down to negativity
    But I believe, yes I believe, I said I believe
    I'll stand on my own two feet
    Won't be brought down on one knee
    Fight with all of my might and get these demons to flee
    Hashem's rays fire blaze burn bright and I believe
    Out of darkness comes light, twilight unto the heights
    Crown Heights burnin' up all through till midnight
    Said, thank you to my God, now I finally got it right
    And I'll fight with all of my heart, and all a' my soul, and all a' my might

    [Chorus] x 2
    What's this feeling?
    My love will rip a hole in the ceiling
    I give myself to you from the essence of my being
    & I Sing to my God all these songs of love and healing
    Want Mashiach now so it's time we start revealing

    Strip away the layers and reveal your soul
    Got to give yourself up and then you become whole
    You're a slave to yourself and you don't even know
    You want to live the fast life but your brain moves slow
    If you're trying to stay high then you're bound to stay low
    You want God but you can't deflate your ego
    If you're already there then there's nowhere to go
    If you're cup's already full then its bound to overflow
    If you're drowning in the waters and you can't stay afloat
    Ask Hashem for mercy and he'll throw you a rope
    You're looking for help from God you say he couldn't be found
    Looking up to the sky and searchin' beneath the ground
    Like a King without his Crown
    Yes, you keep fallin' down
    You really want to live but can't get rid of your frown
    You tried to reach unto the heights and wound bound down on the ground
    Given up your pride and the you heard a sound
    Out of night comes day and out of day comes light
    Nullified to the One like sunlight in a ray,
    Makin' room for his love and a fire gone blaze
    Make room for his love and a fire gone blaze

    What's this feeling?
    My love will rip a hole in the ceiling
    I give myself to you from the essence of my being
    & I sing to my God all these songs of love and healing
    I want Mashiach now
     
  5. Life in Jesus - Herbz

    (Myspace link - http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendid=52923840)

    Possess me holy spirit,
    Let your fire burn.
    Surrounded by you Jesus,
    Living by your word.
    A master piece in progress,
    Life no other way.
    A well of living water,
    Overflows again.

    Know that it's within me,
    I will lay it down.
    To live a life that's worth living,
    in a world that holds me down.

    And Life in Jesus,
    I give mine away.
    I lay it down, lay it down, lay it down.

    And I sing, Life in Jesus,
    Take mine away,
    I lay it down, lay it down, lay it down.

    Give this song a listen, it's amazing!
     
  6. Who's saying His arms aren't reaching, His hands healing, His words teaching or His feet going???
     
  7. Newest favorite song

    No one knew how alone I was feeling,
    And the emptiness I tried so hard to hide
    Though I laughed and said my life was fine without You,
    I was covering up the secret tears I cried
    Then one day someone told me of Your mercy
    And the love You showed on a hill called Calvary
    There you died and purchased my redemption
    When you broke sin’s power and set my spirit free

    Chorus
    I’m amazed that you love me
    I’m amazed how you care
    Through your precious blood,
    I’ve found pardon
    And my sins are washed,
    They’re all washed away
    All my sins are washed away

    It’s true there have been days when I’ve failed You
    Lord, you know the many times I’ve gone astray
    But I’ve learned that Your love is stronger than my weakness
    And your ear is open every time I pray.
    No one else has ever cared for me like You, Lord
    Other friends could never be as close to me
    I’m not afraid to face the problems of tomorrow
    Knowing You are everything I’ll ever need

  8. In a world with over 1 billion professing christians only a small % are- if all who are called by His Name act the world will be turned upside down-
     
  9. Lifesong

    Empty hands held high
    Such small sacrifice
    If not joined with my life
    I sing in vain tonight

    May the words I say
    And the things I do
    Make my lifesong sing
    Bring a smile to You

    Chorus:
    Let my lifesong sing to You
    Let my lifesong sing to You
    I want to sign your name to the end of this day
    Knowing that my heart was true
    Let my lifesong sing to You

    Lord, I give my life
    A living sacrafice
    To reach a world in need
    To be Your hands and feet

    So may the words I say
    And the things I do make my lifesong sing
    Bring a smile to you

    (Chorus)

    Hallelujah
    Hallelujah
    Let my lifesong sing to You
    (2x)

    (Chorus 2x)
     
  10. Cry Out to Jesus - Third Day

    To everyone who's lost someone they love
    Long before it was their time
    You feel like the days you had were not enough
    When you said goodbye

    And to all of the people with burdens and pains
    Keeping you back from your life
    You believe that there is nothing and there is no one
    Who can make it right


    CHORUS
    There is hope for the helpless, rest for the weary
    And love for the broken heart
    There is grace and forgiveness
    Mercy and healing
    He'll meet you whever you are
    Cry out to jesus, Cry out to Jesus

    For the marriage that is struggling just to hang on
    They've lost all of their faith in love
    They've done all they can to make it right again
    Still it's not enough

    For the one's who can't break the addictions and chains
    Try to give up but you come back again
    Just remember that you're not alone in your shame and your suffering

    Chorus

    Bridge -
    When you're lonely and it feels like the whole world is falling on you
    You just reach out, you just cry out to Jesus, cry to Jesus

    To the widow who suffers from being alone
    Wiping the tears from her eyes
    To the children around the world, without a home
    Say a prayer tonight

    Chorus
     
  11. Artist: Relient K
    Song: For The Moments I Feel Faint

    Am I at the point of no improvement?
    What of the death I still dwell in?
    I try to excel, but I feel no movement.
    Can I be free of this unreleasable sin?

    Never underestimate my Jesus.
    You're telling me that there's no hope.
    I'm telling you, you're wrong.
    Never underestimate my Jesus.
    When the world around you crumbles,
    he will be strong.
    He will be strong.

    I throw up my hands.
    "Oh, the impossibilities."
    Frustrated and tired,
    where do I go from here?
    Now I'm searching for the confidence I've lost so willingly.
    Overcoming these obstacles is overcoming my fears.

    I think I can't, I think I can't.
    But, I think you can, I think you can.
    I think I can't, I think I can't.
    But, I think you can, I think you can.
    Gather my insufficiencies and place them in your hands.
    Place them in your hands.
    Place them in your hands.

    Never underestimate my Jesus.
    You're telling me that there's no hope.
    I'm telling you, you're wrong.
    Never underestimate my Jesus.
    When the world around you crumbles,
    he will be strong.
    He will be strong.

    God Bless,

    Rob
     
  12. Thanks Rob! Here is one I dug out of the archives- it is a song of a man deep in trail but strong in faith- his name was King David


    Lord how are they increased that trouble me
    Many are they that rise up against me
    Many there be that say of my soul
    There is no help for him in God.
    Chorus:
    But thou oh Lord are a shield for me
    My glory, you lift my head
    But thou oh Lord are a shield for me
    You're my glory, the lifter up of my head.
    I cried to the Lord with my voice,
    And he heard me out of his Holy hill.
    I laid me down... and I slept
    I wait for the Lord to save me.
    Chorus:
    I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people
    That set themselves against me round about (x 2)
    Chorus: x 2 with emosulation;
    Tab:
    Thank you for lifting (x3) my head
    Thank you for lifting my head
    Thank you for lifting (x3) my head
    Chorus:
    Lead end; you Lord are my glory, you lift my head. ​
     
  13. Thanks, good words in there too.

  14. Post your Songs here

    Forgive me if this has already been done, but I couldn't find a topic like this. Just post any lyrics that are stuck on your heart. I know a lot of my life has a soundtrack playing in the background, so sometimes I just need a way to express them. I'm not going to "require" them to be by openly Christian bands, but I do insist that they be clean and appropriate for this site, and consistent with Christian ideals.

     
  15. I need to be still

    I Need to be Still

    [SIZE=+0]I need to be stiIl and let God love me
    I need to be still and let God love me
    When this old world starts to push and shove me
    I need to be still and let God love me

    I need to relax and let God take over
    I need to relax and let God take over
    He'll take this load off my shoulders
    I need to relax and let God take over

    When there's sorrow all around me
    And I need a place of resr rest
    When I feel that I'm failing
    Even though I've done my best
    When decisions get so heavy
    And there are answers that I need
    I know it's time to just be still and let
    God love me

    I need to be still and let God love me
    I need to be still and let God love me
    When this old world starts to push and shove me
    I need to be still and let God love me

    I need to be still and let God love me
    I need to be still and let God love me
    When this old world starts to push and shove me
    I need to be still and let God love me

  16. Beauty For Ashes
    Crystal Lewis -


    Isaiah 61:3
    To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.

    He gives beauty for ashes
    Strength for fear
    Gladness for mourning
    Peace for despair

    When sorrow seems to surround you
    When suffering hangs heavy o'er your head
    Know that tomorrow brings
    Wholeness and healing
    God knows your need
    Just believe what He said

    He gives beauty for ashes
    Strength for fear
    Gladness for mourning
    Peace for despair

    When what you've done keeps you from moving on
    When fear wants to make itself at home in your heart
    Know that forgiveness brings
    Wholeness and healing
    God knows your need
    Just believe what He said

    He gives beauty for ashes
    Strength for fear
    Gladness for mourning
    Peace for despair

    I once was lost but God has found me
    Though I was bound Ive been set free
    Ive been made righteous in His sight
    A display of His splendor all can see

    He gives beauty for ashes
    Strength for fear
    Gladness for mourning
    Peace for despair



     
  17. This song may not be Christian, but it is a song that has a lot of personal meaning which affects my heart in many different ways. I am posting the lyrics and below the lyrics will be the song if you are interested in listening. Some of you may already know this song.


    Dust in Wind Lyrics from Kansas


    I close my eyes, only for a moment, and the moment's gone
    All my dreams, pass before my eyes, a curiosity
    Dust in the wind, all they are is dust in the wind.
    Same old [COLOR=blue! important][COLOR=blue! important]song[/COLOR][/COLOR], just a drop of water in an endless sea
    All we do, crumbles to the ground, though we refuse to see

    Dust in the wind, all we are is dust in the wind

    [Now] Don't hang on, nothing lasts forever but the earth and sky
    It slips away, and all your money won't another minute buy.

    Dust in the wind, all we are is dust in the wind
    Dust in the wind, everything is dust in the wind.


     
  18. Jesus Freak
    ~Dc Talk.

    Separated I cut myself clean
    From a past that comes back in my darkest of dreams
    Been apprehended by a spiritual force
    And a grace that replaced all the me I've divorced

    I saw a man with a tat on his big fat belly
    It wiggled around like marmalade jelly
    It took me a while to catch what it said
    Cause I had to match the rhythm of his belly with my head
    Jesus saves is what it raved in a typical tattoo green
    He stood on a box in the middle of the city and claimed he had adream

    What will people think when they hear that I'm a Jesus Freak
    What will people do when they find that it's true
    I don't really care if they label me a Jesus Freak
    Cause there ain't no disguising the truth

    Kamikaze my death it is gain
    I've been marked by my maker a peculiar display
    The high and lofty they see me as weak
    Cause I won't live and die for the power they seek

    There was a man from the desert with naps in his head
    The sand that he walked was also his bed
    The words that he spoke made the people assume
    There wasn't too much left in the upper room
    With scabs on his back and hair on his face
    They thought he was strange by the locusts he ate
    The Pharisee's tripped when they heared him speak
    Until the king took the head of this Jesus Freak

    What will people think when they hear that I'm a Jesus Freak
    What will people do when they find that it's true
    I don't really care if they lable me a Jesus Freak
    Cause there ain't no disguising the truth

    What will people think when they hear that I'm a Jesus Freak
    What will people do when they find that it's true
    I don't really care if they lable me a Jesus Freak
    Cause there ain't no disguising the truth

    People say I'm strange does it make me a stranger
    That my best friend was born in a manger
    People say I'm strang does it make me a stranger
    That my best friend was born in a manger

    What will people think when they hear that I'm a Jesus Freak
    What will poeple do when they find that it's true
    I don't really care if they label me a Jesus Freak
    Cause there ain't no disguising the truth

    What will people think when they hear that I'm a Jesus Freak
    What will poeple do when they find that it's true
    I don't really care if they lable me a Jesus Freak
    Cause there ain't no disguising the truth

    What will people think
    What will people think
    What will people do
    What will people do
    I don't really care
    What else can I say
    Cause there ain't no disguising the truth
    Jesus is the way
     
  19. I really love songs that just shout out praises to Him...ones that drive a beat and can bring tears of complete joy to my eyes while I'm worshipping. I can dance, throw my hands into the air, sing at the top of my lungs and just feel his presence.
