In the Quiet - lyrics

 YOU ARE FAITHFUL LORD

                                    Billy Gaines & John G. Elliott

More faithful than the sun to rise
the stars to shine, the seasons change
You are, You are
More faithful than the moon to cast her light
The tides to turn again
You are, You are

You are faithful Lord Never failing Friend
Unchanging God, eternal Savior
You are faithful Lord Never wavering Guide
Unending source, ageless Creator
You are faithful Lord

More faithful than our minds
Could ever comprehend or words define
You are, You are
More faithful than the things we see
Or that our feelings seems to say
You are, You are

As You have always been So You shall always be
The living God, the solid Rock
That holds our hearts in perfect peace

DRAWING NEAR TO YOU

(verse 1)
In Your Presence lies the secret
That unlocks my soul’s desire
All my searching finds an ending
Near Your holy fire

(chorus)
(men) Drawing near to You
(women) Lord, I love Your presence
(men) Drawing near to You
(women) Lord, I love Your presence
(men) Drawing near to You
(women) Lord, I love Your presence
feasting at Your table Lord, my heart is grateful
Drawing near to You

(verse 2)
Leaning hard upon Your shoulder
Lord, Your nearness makes me strong
All that’s good is in Your Presence
That’s where I belong

THE LONGING SOUL

(excerpts from selected Scriptures)

THERE IS PRAYER

                          John G. Elliott and Bruce Carroll

(verse 1)
They say the boy is near the end
The needle had its way again
A crying mother wonders why
The family gathers ‘round the bed
What can be done?  What can be said?
Nothing that they can do tonight

(chorus)
but there is prayer
there’s Some One Who is listening
Who knows the situation
Then Who acts because He cares
There is prayer
He’ll give His full attention
Then answer in His wisdom
Anytime or anywhere
There is prayer

(verse 2)
another marriage takes its toll
their anger burns, their love is cold
there seems no hope to ease their pain
yet all the bitterness they feel
is not so great it can’t be healed
down on their knees a hope remains

HOW CAN IT BE

                         John G. Elliott & Chris Dupre

(verse 1)
How can it be so tenderly
You’ve drawn me to Your side
You’ve made it clear You want me near
So close our hearts entwine

(chorus)
Yes it is true You foreknew
I would be like Your Son
Until that Day have Your way
Finish what You’ve begun
‘till with all my heart
(echo) I will love You Father
With all my mind
(echo) I will love You Lord
With all my soul
(echo) I will love You Jesus
All my strength
(echo) All my strength
All I have
(echo) All I have
I will love You Lord

(verse 2)
How can it be so graciously
You’ve shared Your Son’s reward
Honor and wealth lavished on me
All this and so much more
(repeat chorus)

(verse 3)
How could my heart ever possess
Passion that never fades
How could I love with that same love
Father and Son display

IN THE QUIET

In the quiet of the morning
I will worship You my Lord
In the quiet of the morning
I will sing Your praise
When the day begins I will enter in
To the quiet of Your Presence my Lord

Soon the quiet must be broken
By the labors of the day
Distractions that surround me
Crowd against my soul
Yet the calmest voice whispers through the noise
It’s the quiet of Your Presence my Lord

In this restless world my heart yearns for a place
Where I can often go to be renewed in peace
Refreshed through praise

In the quiet of the evening
I will worship You my Lord
In the quiet of the evening
I will sing Your praise
When the day is through I long to be with You
In the quiet of Your Presence my Lord

AS LONG AS YOU GIVE ME BREATH

As long as You give me breath I will praise You
As long as You give me breath I will praise You

I’ll call upon Your name forever - Praise You
I’ll lift up holy hands to heaven - Praise You
I’ll trust Your word and bring You honor - Praise You
I’ll give my heart to love You Father - Praise You
I will praise You in life
I will praise You in death
Lord, as long as You give me breath

COME TO ME

Come to Me all you who are weary and burdened
and I will give You rest
Come to Me all you who are weary and burdened
and I will give You rest
take My yoke upon you and learn from Me
for I am gentle and humble in heart
and you shall find rest for your souls
for My yoke is easy  My burden is light

(taken from Matthew 11:28-30)

RELAX, LET GO

(verse 1)
The Lord has been my refuge
my tower of strength
my very present help in troubled times
therefore I will not fear
though the mountains
fall into the heart of the sea
my heart may fail and the worst may prevail
but His word is life to me

(chorus)
Relax, let go, be still and know
that I am your God,  yes I am your God
Relax, let go, be still and know
that I am your God, I will always be your God

(verse 2)
A living crystal river flows from God’s throne
those streams make glad His servants
He calls His own
therefore I will not fear what surrounds me
perilous times may threaten my soul
all things may fail and the worst prevail
but my God is in control. . .

MY HOUSE SHALL BE A HOUSE OF PRAYER

(chorus I)
My house shall be a house of prayer
let all the nations gather there
and cast on Me their every care
My house shall be a house of prayer

(chorus II)
My house shall be a house of prayer
My Father will be honored there
every burden He will bear
My House shall be a house of prayer

(verse 1)

let loving intercession rise up before the throne
let grateful adoration be God’s and God’s alone

(repeat chorus I)

(verse 2)
And pray for one another until My Kingdom comes
hold up the  arms of leaders so battles will be won

(chorus II)

(verse 3)
Let faith grow into courage

and prove My word is true
just follow where I lead you
and watch those mountains move

(final chorus)
My House shall be a house of prayer
my Father will work wonders there
priceless treasure He will share
My House shall be a house of prayer

UNTO YOU I LIFT UP MY SOUL

Unto You, unto You I lift up my soul
Unto You, unto You I lift up my soul
Oh my God I will trust in You
do not let me be ashamed
do not let my enemies exult over me
I will wait for You, I will wait for You
hear my prayer, Oh Lord
unto You, unto You I lift up my soul
I lift up my soul

Make me know Your ways, Lord
and guide me in Your truth
teach me, Lord, all Your paths
for You are my God
Lord, remember Your gracious love
Your compassion from of old
my transgressions and my lawless deeds
Lord, forgive
I will trust in You, I will trust in You
hear my prayer, Oh Lord
unto You, unto You I lift up my soul
I lift up my soul

I AM CRUCIFIED WITH CHRIST

I am crucified with Christ
Therefore I no longer live
Jesus Christ now lives in me
I am crucified with Christ
Therefore I no longer live
Jesus Christ now lives in me

The life I now live in this body
I live by faith in Him
I’m crucified with the Son of God
Who loved me and gave Himself for me
