    Jerusalem My Destiny

    Buy track Lyrics

    Jerusalem My Destiny - Rory Cooney

    Refrain
    I have fixed my eyes on your hills, Jerusalem, my Destiny.
    Though I cannot see the end for me I cannot turn away.
    We have set our hearts for the way; this journey is our destiny.
    Let no one walk alone. The journey makes us one.

    Other spirits, lesser gods, have courted me with lies.
    Here among you I have found a truth that bids me rise.

    Refrain

    See, I leave the past behind; a new land calls to me.
    Here among you now I find a glimpse of what might be.

    Refrain

    In my thirst, you let me drink the waters of your life,
    Here among you I have met, the Savior, Jesus Christ.

    Refrain

    All the worlds I have not seen you open to my view.
    Here among you I have found a vision bright and new.

    Refrain

    To the tombs I went to mourn the hope I thought was gone,
    Here among you I awoke to unexpected dawn.

    Ashes

    Buy track Lyrics

    Ashes - Tom Conry

    We rise again from ashes, from the good we've failed to do.
    We rise again from ashes, to create ourselves anew.
    If all the world is ashes, then must our lives be true,
    an offering of ashes, an offering to you.

    We offer you our failures, we offer you attempts,
    The gifts not fully given, the dreams not fully dreamt
    Give our stumblings direction, give our visions wider view
    an offering of ashes, an offering to you.

    Then rise again from ashes, let healing come to pain,
    Though spring has turned to winter, and sunshine turned to rain,
    the rain we'll use for growing and create the world anew
    From an offering of ashes, an offering to you.

    Thanks be to the Father, who made us like himself,
    thanks be to the Son, who saved us by his death;
    thanks be to the Spirit, who creates the world anew,
    From an offering of ashes, an offering to you.

    Lord Who Throughout These 40 Days

    Buy track Lyrics

    Lord, Who Throughout These Forty Days

    Lord, who throughout these forty days, for us did fast and pray,
    Teach us to overcome our sins and close by you to stay.

    As you with Satan did content, and did the victory win,
    O give us strength in you to fight, in you to conquer sin.
    As you did hunger and did thirst, so teach us, gracious Lord,
    To die to self, and so to live by your most holy word.

    And through these days of penitence, and through your Passion tide,
    For evermore, in life and death, O Lord! with us abide.

    Abide with us, that through this life of doubts and hope and pain,
    An Easter of unending joy we may at last attain.

    Lord Who Throughout These 40 Days

    Somebody's Knocking At Your Door

    Somebody's knocking at your door; Somebody's knocking at your door;
    O sinner, why don't you answer? Somebody's knocking at your door.

    Knocks like Jesus Somebody's knocking at your door;
    Knocks like Jesus Somebody's knocking at your door;
    O sinner, why don't you answer? Somebody's knocking at your door.

    Can’t you hear him? Somebody's knocking at your door;
    Can’t you hear him? Somebody's knocking at your door;
    O sinner, why don't you answer? Somebody's knocking at your door.

    Jesus calls you; Somebody's knocking at your door;
    Jesus calls you; Somebody’s knocking at your door;
    O sinner, why don't you answer? Somebody's knocking at your door.

    Can’t you trust him? Somebody's knocking at your door;
    Can’t you trust him? Somebody's knocking at your door;

    Change our Hearts

    Change Our Hearts - Rory Cooney

    Change our hearts this time, your word says it can be.
    Change our minds this time, your life could make us free.
    We are the people your call sets apart. Lord, this time change our hearts.

    Brought by your hand to the edge of our dreams, one foot in paradise, one in the waste.
    Drawn by your promises, still we are lured
    by the shadows and the chains we leave behind. But ...

    Refrain

    Now as we watch you stretch out your hands, offering abundances, fullness of joy,
    your milk and honey seem distant, unreal,
    when we have bread and water in our hands. But ...

    Refrain

    Show us the way that leads to your side, over the mountains and sands of the soul.
    Be for us manna, water from stone, light which says we never walk alone. And ...

    Hosea - Gregory Norbert

    Come back to me with all your heart. don't let fear keep us apart.
    Trees do bend, though straight and tall so must we, to others call.

    Refrain
    Long have I waited for your coming, home to me and living, deeply our new lives.

    The wilderness will lead you to your heart where I will speak.
    Integrity and justice, with tenderness, you shall know.

    Refrain

    You shall sleep secure with peace; faithfulness will be your joy.

    The Glory of These 40 Days (Old 100th)

    Buy track Lyrics

    The Glory of These Forty Days

    The glory of these forty days
    We celebrate with songs of praise;
    For Christ, by whom all things were made,
    Himself has fasted and has prayed.

    Alone and fasting Moses saw
    The loving God Who gave the law;
    And to Elijah, fasting, came
    The steeds and chariots of flame.

    So Daniel trained his mystic sight,
    Delivered from the lions’ might;
    And John, the Bridegroom’s friend, became
    The herald of Messiah’s Name.

    Then grant that we like them be true,
    Consumed in fast and prayer with you;
    Our spirits strengthen with your grace,
    And give us joy to see your face.

    Tree of Life

    Buy track Lyrics

    Tree of Life - Marty Haugen

    Tree of life and awesome mystery, In your death we are reborn,
    Though you die in all of history, still you rise with every morn,
    Still you rise with every morn.
    Seed that dies to rise in glory, May we see ourselves in you,
    If we learn to live your story, We may die to rise anew,
    we may die to rise anew.

    We remember truth one spoken, love passed on through act and word,
    Every person, lost and broken wears the body of our Lord,
    wears the body of our Lord.

    Gentle Jesus, mighty Spirit, come inflame our hearts anew,
    We may all your joy inherit, if we bear the cross with you,
    if we bear the cross with you.

    Christ you lead and we shall follow, stumbling though our steps may be,
    One with you in joy and sorrow, we the river you the sea,
    we the river you the sea.

    Jesus Walked This Lonesome Valley

    Jesus walked this lonesome valley; He had to walk it by himself.
    Oh, nobody else could walk it for him; He had to walk it by himself.

    We must walk this lonesome valley; We have to walk it by ourselves.
    Oh, nobody else can walk it for us; We have to walk it by ourselves.

    You must go and stand your trial; You have to stand it by yourself.
    Oh, nobody else can stand it for you; You have to stand it by yourself.

    What Wondrous Love Is This

    What wondrous love is this, O my soul, O my soul!
    What wondrous love is this, O my soul!
    What wondrous love is this That caused the Lord of bliss
    To bear the dreadful curse For my soul, for my soul,
    To bear the dreadful curse for my soul!

    When I was sinking down, Sinking down, sinking down,
    When I was sinking down, sinking down;
    When I was sinking down Beneath God's righteous frown,
    Christ laid aside His crown For my soul, for my soul,
    Christ laid aside His crown for my soul!

    To God and to the Lamb, I will sing, I will sing,
    To God and to the Lamb, I will sing!
    To God and to the Lamb Who is the "Great I Am"
    While millions join the theme I will sing, I will sing,
    While millions join the theme I will sing!

    And when from death I'm free, I'll sing on, I'll sing on,
    And when from death I'm free, I'll sing on!
    And when from death I'm free, I'll sing and joyful be
    And through eternity I'll sing on, I'll sing on
    And thro' eternity, I'll sing on!

    Were You There - Spiritual
    Were you there when they crucified my Lord?
    Were you there when they crucified my Lord?
    Oh! Sometimes it causes me to tremble, tremble, tremble.
    Were you there when they crucified my Lord?

    Were you there when they nailed Him to the tree?
    Were you there when they nailed Him to the tree?
    Oh! sometimes it causes me to tremble, tremble, tremble.
    Were you there when they nailed Him to the tree?

    Were you there when they pierced Him in the side?
    Were you there when they pierced Him in the side?
    Oh! sometimes it causes me To tremble, tremble, tremble.
    Were you there when they pierced Him in the side?

    Were you there when the sun refused to shine?
    Were you there when the sun refused to shine?
    Oh! sometimes it causes me To tremble, tremble, tremble.
    Were you there when the sun refused to shine?

    Were you there when they laid Him in the tomb?
    Were you there when they laid Him in the tomb?
    Oh! sometimes it causes me To tremble, tremble, tremble.

    Were you there when they laid Him in the tomb?
    Were you there when they rolled the stone away?
    Oh! sometimes it causes me To tremble, tremble, tremble.
    Were you there when they rolled the stone away?

    O Sacred Head

    Buy track Lyrics

    O Sacred Head Surrounded

    O Sacred Head surrounded by crown of piercing thorn!
    O bleeding Head, so wounded, reviled and put to scorn!
    The power of death comes o'er you, the glow of life decays,
    Yet angel hosts adore you, and treble as they gaze.

    I see your strength and vigor all fading in the strife,
    And death with cruel rigor, bereaving you of life;
    O agony and dying! O love to sinners free!
    Jesus, all grace supplying, O turn your face on me.

    In this, your bitter passion, Good Shepherd, think of me
    With your most sweet compassion, Unworthy though I may be:
    Beneath your cross abiding For ever would I rest,
    By your dear love confiding, And with your presence blest.

    O Sacred Head

    All Glory, Laud, and Honor

    All glory, laud, and honor to you, Redeemer, King
    To whom the lips of children made sweet hosannas ring.
    You are the king of Israel and David’s royal Son,
    Now in the Lord’s name coming, our King and Blessed One.

    Refrain

    The company of angels are praising you on high;
    Creation and all mortals in chorus make reply.

    Refrain
    The multitude of pilgrims with palms before you went,
    Our praise and prayer and anthems before you we present.

    Refrain

    To you, before your Passion, they sang their hymns of praise.
    To you, now high exalted, our melody we raise.

    Refrain

    Their praises you accepted; accept the prayers we bring,
    Great author of all goodness, O good and gracious King.

    Refrain

    All Glory, Laud and Honor.
