Track Name: Daddy
I need You so much,
more than I even know,
so come closer Dad.
Remind me, You are Father
and that I am Your child.
An orphan no longer,
I've found my home in Your hands

So my childlike heart sings this song to rejoice in Your love.
My childlike heart sings this song to rejoice in Your heart,

Oh my Daddy loves me,
Oh my Daddy loves me, Yeah.

When tears fall from my eyes,
they fall into Your chest cause
You’re holding me tight.
Daddy You’re the best

I can be that child upon Your lap,
receive Your love be distracted by that

Abba Father who art in heaven, holy is Your name.
Your kingdom come. Your will be done.
All glory to Your name.
Give us today our daily bread,
reach out and feed the broken.
Forgive us of our trespasses
and teach us to forgive.
Lead us not into temptation.
Deliver us from condemnation.
All honor, glory, power, might,
Your victory is our delight.
Now and Forever.
Now and Forever. Amen.
Track Name: In Your Arms
God, I don’t know why you called me when I’m lost and far.
God, I don’t know why you love me, broken and scarred.

God, I don’t know,
God, I don’t know
why you hold me in Your arms.

God, I don’t know why you care for me
when I’ve given You scars.
I don’t know why You hold my hands
when I nailed Your arms to the cross.

God, I don’t know,
God, I don’t know
why you hold me in Your arms.

In Your arms I am safe to be broken.
In Your arms I am able to stand.
In Your arms I am prideless and great.
In Your arms I am unashamed.

God I don’t know why you died for me,
wore my crown of thorns.
But, I know when You hung on the cross
You redeemed me and paid the cost.

And I will never know,
I’ll never know how much it cost.
But, one thing I know, this I know,
You hold me

In Your arms I am safe to be broken.
In Your arms I am able to stand.
In Your arms I am prideless and great.
In Your arms I am unashamed.

Cause this I know,
this I know, You hold me.
In Your arms I am.
In Your arms I am.
In Your arms I am to stay.

Track Name: Heartbeat
When I don’t have the strength to run.
I lay in Your chest, fall asleep in Your arms.
And when my heart turns against me.
I stop and trust in Your heartbeat.

I’ve found where I belong.
It’s where I can hear Your heart.
I’ve found where I belong.
It’s in Your presence God.

Align my heart to Yours
When I hear Your heartbeat,
Your desire for me,
my desire is to know Your heart completely.

I am my beloved’s and He is mine.
Track Name: Instead of Ashes
Father above, provide for my grieving.
Mercies new every morning.
New life at every dawn and
Your presence here in my mourning.

Cause You promised me a crown of beauty,
instead of ashes,
instead of ashes.
The oil of gladness over mourning,
instead of ashes,
instead of ashes.

I come before Your throne,
let the grace of Your love fulfill my soul.

I’m worth more than ashes.
I’m worth more than ashes.

Track Name: Scarred (Yet You Loved Me) / Way You Love Me
Lord You loved me, when I didn’t love myself.
You loved me.
Lord, You loved me when I tore and I screamed,
destroying Your image created in me.
Yet You loved me.

For our tears are worth more than gold.
Valued in His love, our stronghold.

And forever You will hold,
cause You are a God that never lets go.
By Your scars on the cross,
all my scars are washed,
cause You loved me, cause You loved me.

Lord by Your scars my arms are forever free,
by Your love for me.
Lord by Your scars, You showed that You loved me.
You showed that You loved me

In Your freedom I will live.
In Your freedom I will give.
With these arms that were once broken,
for Your kingdom I will give.

Teach me how to be free,
show me how to love ‘me’
the way you love me Lord,
the way you love me Lord.

I’ve been set free

My every insecurity laid bare at Your feet my Lord,
cause I desire intimacy.

Track Name: Claimed
I surrender to the safety of Your nail pierced hands.
I surrender to the path of Your blood stained feet.

Cause Your hands were pierced for me
and Your feet they bled for me
and You suffered just to claim me.

You have claimed me for Your kingdom.
You have claimed me for Your glory.
I am Yours.
I am Yours.
I am Yours.

I belong to You.
I belong to You.
I belong to You.
Track Name: Dance
You came down
and I can’t understand why You chose,
out of all of creation, to be
in a romance with a Bride that includes me.
That includes me, Oh Jesus.

Your love, took the first step out of heaven.
Your love, cherished the moment.
Your love, leads every movement.
Here on this earth, till I’m with You again.

You chose me to dance with You as Your beloved.

Your love and this dance will never end.
Track Name: Take Me Away (Spontaneous Song)
You want to be with me in Your glory

Closer than the Seraphim.
Closer than the Elders in heaven.
Closer, Lord you draw me,
closer though You’re Holy.

I receive.
I am willing.
Take me Away.
Come take me away

I want to be with You in Your glory
