Lyrics Joy!

1. Joy!

Slowly something’s growing

A spark of joy in my heart

First it’s barely glowing

Having trouble to start

 

Slowly it is reaching

Deeper layers within

And barriers are breaching

I feel alive, feel alive again

 

Joy to my life

You brought joy to my life

Opened up my eyes and made me see

Joy to my life

You brought joy to my life

You renewed my heart, made me free

 

The fire in my heart

Is lighted by Your grace

You gave me back my smile

And I feel You, feel Your warm embrace

 

Joy to my life

You brought joy to my life

Opened up my eyes and made me see

Joy to my life

You brought joy to my life

You renewed my heart, made me free

 

For my God everything is possible

Give me all I need

 

Joy to my life

You brought joy to my life

Opened up my eyes and made me see

Joy to my life

You brought joy to my life

You renewed my heart, made me free

You made me free

2. When it’s all gone

 

God has blessed me, in so many ways

Gave me all, showed me His grace

What else can I do, but lay my life in His hands

Be grateful, give my thanks

 

When it’s all gone, God could I hold on to my faith

When it’s all gone, could I still praise Your name

Could I say with all my heart: He gives and He takes

Could I say “come what may”

Could I say “come what may”

 

I know He’ll give me, all the strength that I’ll need

When I stay close, He’ll make me strong

What else can I do, but lay my life in His hands

Be grateful, give my thanks

 

When it’s all gone, God could I hold on to my faith

When it’s all gone, could I still praise Your name

Could I say with all my heart: He gives and He takes

Could I say “come what may”

Could I say “come what may”

 

Though I’m scared

Though I’m not so sure

When I’m afraid

When I feel insecure

 

I choose to pray

I choose to say

Come what may

 

When it’s all gone, God could I hold on to my faith

When it’s all gone, could I still praise Your name

Could I say with all my heart: He gives and He takes

Could I say with all my heart: He gives and He takes

Could I say “come what may”

“Come what may”

"Come what may"

3. Two pillars

My heart is bleeding out for you

To see you suffering so much, it makes me feel so sad

We’re like two pillars, each carrying our weight

 

I can’t put my mind at ease

Thoughts are running through my mind, I can’t find my inner peace

We’re like two pillars, each carrying our weight

 

I miss your laughter and your smile

You telling me it ‘ll be all right

My prayer ‘s for you all through the night

We’re like two pillars, each carrying our weight

 

When you suffer, I do to

When you cry, I cry with you

We’re like two pillars, each carrying our weight

 

I miss your laughter and your smile

You telling me it ‘ll be all right

My prayer ‘s for you all through the night

 

He will lead us through the storm

We have never been alone

The arch of God will keep us strong

The arch of God will keep us strong

 

I miss your laughter and your smile

You telling me it ‘ll be all right

My prayer ‘s for you all through the night

 

He will lead us through the storm

We have never been alone

The arch of God will keep us strong

The arch of God will keep us strong

The arch of God will keep us strong

4. Martha or Mary

 

Time, so precious is the time

Every moment spent with You

It never lasts too long

 

Time, slips like sand through my fingers

My priorities are wrong

I keep on running

 

Who do I want to be

Who am I gonna be

 

Martha or Mary

The working one, who misses all the fun

Martha or Mary

Who sits at Your feet and enjoys the company

 

Time, so precious is the time

Every moment spent with You

It never lasts too long

 

Time, slips like sand through my fingers

And who do I want to be

My priorities are wrong

And who am I gonna be

 

Martha or Mary

The working one, who misses all the fun

Martha or Mary

Who sits at Your feet and enjoys the company

 

Martha or Mary

The working one, who misses all the fun

Martha or Mary

Who sits at Your feet and enjoys the company

Martha or Mary 4x

 

Can I be still 2x

Be still..

 

Shush my soul, be still my soul 2x

Shush my soul be still, be still

 

Ooh ,Wait for the Lord

Ooh, wait

Ooh, wait for the Lord

5. When I look into your eyes

When I look into your eyes               

Innocent and pure

I feel a love inside of me

A love that will endure

 

You’re a gift of God to me

And I am truly sure.

No matter what might come to us

Our love will be secure.

 

I want to know you

I want to hold you

I want to watch you grow

 

I’ll always love you

I will protect you

I will be near

 

When you can’t go any further.

I’ll carry you around.

Step by step we’ll make it through

You ‘ll be safe and sound

 

If we put our trust in Him.

keep His presence near

Whatever life will bring to us

We never have to fear

 

I want to know you

I want to hold you

I want to watch you grow

 

I’ll always love you

I will protect you

I will be near

 

I love you

I will protect you

I will be near  

6. Jerusalem

The road to Jerusalem is simple

Jerusalem’s road is straight

Follow the river and you’ll get there

Come along, don’t be afraid

Come along, don’t you wait

 

Jerusalem, I’m coming Jerusalem

City with streets of gold

I’m coming home

Jerusalem, I’m coming home

Home

 

Alongside the road are many treasures

Diamonds ruby’s gold are all for free

Beware, the river ’s getting smaller

Before you know you can no longer see

 

Jerusalem, where are you Jerusalem

City with streets of gold

Where are you now

Jerusalem, where are you now

Where are you now

 

People are  gathering their fortunes

They're wandering around with hollow hearts 

Filling their time with earthly pleasures

Don’t drift away and lose sight of the path

 

Jerusalem, I’ve lost you Jerusalem

City with streets of gold

Where are you now

Jerusalem, where are you now

Where are you now, where are you now

 

The road to Jerusalem is simple

Jerusalem’s road is straight

7. Choices

Every day

Is a challenge

It’s so hard,

To keep the balance

 

Between what is right and wrong

Let me be firm and strong

 

I’m walking the fine line here

I feel I should stop right now

Still I go further and further and further

It’s hard to stand my ground

 

The moment of truth

The point of no return

Open my heart

Let me see more clearly

 

Between what is right and wrong

Let me be firm and strong

 

I’m walking the fine line here

I feel I should stop right now

Still I go further and further and further

It’s hard to stand my ground

                                      

It’s with or against You now

Is this what You would do

Or is it me pushing through, without You

Help me to stay strong

 

What do You think Lord

Of the choices that we make

Fools and mistakes

Is our faith shifting

Crossing borders trough the ages

We try to bend the rules

We say time changes

But You are still the same

 

Between what is right and wrong

let me be firm and strong

 

I’m walking the fine line here

I feel I should stop right now

Still I go further and further and further

It's hard to stand my ground

 

It’s with or against You now

Is this what You would do

Or is it me pushing through, without You

Help me to stay strong

It’s with or against You now

Is this what You would do

Or is it me pushing through, without You

Help me to stay strong

Help me to stay strong

8.  Human

In my deepest pain

I’m crying out to You

The struggle I am going through

My hands are raised towards You

Oh, why

For I

I am human

Flesh and blood

Always asking questions

oh I feel misunderstood

I am human

Flesh and blood

Asking You why

And trying to keep my

faith

 

Did I

Forget about Your Son

My future is set and paved

I am forgiven I am saved

So why “why”

For I

I am human

Flesh and blood

Asking You why

although I’m saved by Jesus blood

 

I am human

Flesh and blood

Asking You why

And wondered by

Your grace 3x

9. I surrender

I am not who I used to be

This is not what I had in mind for me

Not the way how I planned my life

But it’s all right, it is fine

It is all right, it is fine

 

I surrender, my fight is over now

No more worries, no resistance,

Your will be done

I lay it all down, empty handed

And I come before Your throne

 

Every day I kneel down in prayer

Every single day I have to let it go

Lord I need Your strength and

Your guidance now

Then it’s all right, it is fine

Then it’s all right, it is fine

 

I surrender, my fight is over now

No more worries, no resistance,

Your will be done

I lay it all down, empty handed

And I come before Your throne

 

Now it’s time for a new beginning

I lay my sorrow in Your hands

I lay my troubled mind

to rest in Your arms

I ‘m renewed, I found my peace

 

I surrender, my fight is over 

No more worries, Your will be done

I lay it all down, empty handed

And I come before Your throne

 

I surrender, my fight is over now

No more worries, no resistance,

Your will be done

I lay it all down, empty handed

And I come before Your throne

I come before Your throne

10. Glory to Your name

I often dream of heavens reality

We sit down at the table of our King

All around there’s happiness and laughter

Breaking the bread

And drinking the wine in harmony

 

Singing glory to Your name

Forever You will reign

We’ll sing and all proclaim

United in Your name

Glory to Your name

Glory to Your name

Glory to Your name

 

At the day of our salvation

We sit down at the table of our King

side by side, so many different people

We will come,

together as one, to the cross

 

Singing glory to Your name

Forever You will reign

We’ll sing and all proclaim

United in Your name

Glory to Your name

Forever You will reign

We’ll sing and all proclaim

United in Your name

 

And  I believe in one church, one community

 We"ll all believe, and sing in unity

 

Glory to Your name

Forever You will reign

We’ll sing and all proclaim

United in Your name

Glory to Your name

Forever You will reign

We’ll sing and all proclaim

United in Your name

Glory to Your name

Glory to Your name

Glory to Your name

Glory to Your name

Glory to Your name

Glory glory to Your name
