Track Name: Celebrate Grace
CELEBRATE GRACE
©2007 by Dale J Mayer

It doesn’t hurt to smile anymore, oh no
I’m not afraid to lift my head,
spread my wings and soar
I gave you a broken heart
You gave me a brand new start
The past is erased! Now I have the faith
to celebrate grace

I’m not an empty shell anymore, no I’m not
There’s a new song rising up,
now I’m steppin’ out the door
Once hopeless and rejected
In Christ I am accepted
The future in place, a smile on my face
to celebrate grace

Now I can celebrate life,
celebrate love, celebrate joy
I can celebrate hope,
celebrate truth, celebrate faith
I can celebrate freedom from the past, now
I’m coming home at last
To celebrate mercy, celebrate Jesus,
Celebrate grace

It isn’t hard to love anymore, no it’s not
I see the world through different eyes,
a heart that’s been restored
But it’s hard to hide this glow, you know…
I want the world to know
That mercy is great, it’s never too late
to celebrate grace

It’s time to celebrate life,
celebrate love, celebrate joy
It’s time to celebrate hope,
celebrate truth, celebrate faith
It’s time to celebrate freedom from the past,
You know, you’re coming home at last
To celebrate mercy, celebrate Jesus,
Celebrate grace

Once broken and rejected
In Christ we are accepted!

Celebrate life, celebrate love,
celebrate joy, celebrate peace
Celebrate hope, celebrate truth,
celebrate faith
Come on ‘n celebrate freedom from the past
Now we’re coming home at last
To celebrate mercy, celebrate Jesus,
Celebrate grace

Celebrate mercy, Celebrate Jesus,
Celebrate the One who died to free us!
Celebrate life, Celebrate love,
Celebrate grace…
Celebrate grace…
We’re gonna celebrate grace!
Track Name: You Are The One
YOU ARE THE ONE

Verse 1
You’re the one who makes my life so wonderful
You’re the one who makes my sun to shine
You’re the one who carries me from bitter ways to better days
You’re the one who’s with me all the time

Chorus
I want to sing to you, I want to dance for you, I want to worship you
I want to tell of all the great things you have done
I want to praise your name in the pouring rain
I want to fly with you to heav’n and then
I just want to be with you…
You are the one

Verse 2
You’re the one who covers me with grace on grace
You’re the one who calms my fearful heart
You’re the one who talks to me in secret ways only I can see
You’re the one who knew me from the start

Chorus

Bridge
Who put the stars in the sky?
Who has the answer when I don’t know why?
Who felt my pain and carried all my shame?
It is you… you are the one.

Final Chorus
I’m gonna sing to you, I’m gonna dance for you,
I’m gonna worship you the whole night through
I’m gonna tell of all the great things you have done for me
I’m gonna praise your name in the pouring rain
I’m gonna fly with you to heav’n and then
I’m just gonna be with you…
You are the one
Track Name: Here I Stand
HERE I STAND
©2007 by Dale J Mayer

VERSE 1
I took a long look in the mirror today
Didn't much like who looked at me... I turned away
I'm really not the man I thought I'd be
The day I first felt your gentle hand leading me

CHORUS
Here I stand, once again
All I am and all I'm not
Lord, I belong to you... I belong to you
Dirty clay, here to say
It's not much but it's all I've got
I give my life to you, I pour it out for you
I belong to you

VERSE 2
I took a long look in your book today
Something about the words I read, the things you say
I saw another man I'd like to be
Gentle, kind and caring... Jesus, could this be me?

CHORUS
Here I stand, once again
All I am and all I'm not
Lord, I belong to you... I belong to you
Dirty clay, here to say
It's not much but it's all I've got
I give my life to you, I pour it out for you
I belong to you

BRIDGE
Holy water running through me
Wash away the man I was
Gentle Spirit now infill me
Create in me your heart of love

CHORUS (2X)
Here I stand, once again
All I am and all I'm not
Lord, I belong to you... I belong to you
Dirty clay, here to say
It's not much but it's all I've got
I give my life to you, I pour it out for you
I belong to you
Track Name: Touch
TOUCH
©2007 by Dale J Mayer

Touch the cords… that laid the stripes across his back
Touch the thorns… that pierced his brow
Touch the pole that led the guiltless crimson flow of his blood to the ground
Touch the cloths… that hid his body from our eyes
Touch the nails… pulled from his palms
Touch the cold, hard stone that could never… hold our wounded Savior down.

Touch his hands, touch his feet, put your hand into his side
He’s alive… he is alive
Touching you, touching me, touching all who will believe
He’s alive… Jesus is alive
Touching lives.

Don’t be doubting, but believe
Simple faith he will receive

Do you feel it? You can't conceal it
If you know it, you're gonna show it
Don't be shy now, give it a try now
Cut your ties now, it's time to fly now

Can you hear it? the Holy Spirit
Don't deny it, go on and try it
You can't delay it, you gotta say it
If you don't doubt it, come on and shout it!

Jesus is the way, the truth and the life
He is the way, the truth and the life

And I'm free
Free from the darkness
Now I'm in the light
Track Name: Lamentations Song
LAMENTATIONS SONG
©2008 by Dale J Mayer

Steadfast is your love
Unfailing is your mercy
Compassion for the lost and
Comfort to the weary
With each new break of day
I will rise up and say...

Great is thy faithfulness, O Lord
Great is thy faithfulness to me
I cry in my distress, O God
Show me your faithfulness once more
I need your faithfulness
[repeat all]

What would become of me?
I'd surely be consumed
If you hadn't gone to calvary
And risen from the tomb

Great is thy faithfulness, O Lord
Great is thy faithfulness to me
I cry in my distress, O God
Show me your faithfulness once more
I need your faithfulness
Track Name: Get Away
GET AWAY
©2006 John Dupuis and Dale J Mayer, All Rights Reserved.

Sometimes I find myself wantin’ to get away.
But no matter how far I run, I just can’t get away.
I’m trapped inside myself
No one here but me
Doesn’t anybody see?

Sometimes I’m wonderin’ ”what’s goin’ on?”
Or is there anyone who knows what’s goin’ on?
Walking down the same old road
In the same old worn out shoes
And nothin’ left to lose.

Jesus, please… I’m on my knees
I need to listen to you now.

He said…
My son, I know just what you’re going through
And if you really do, really want to make it through
Just step outside yourself, your answer’s waiting there
Don’t be afraid of the truth.
If you want to find yourself, then you must lose yourself
And behold… all things are new.

Someday you may find yourself wantin’ to get away
And no matter how far you run, you just can’t get away
You must lose yourself, to find out who you are
And the love that waits for you
So when he calls you to himself, the answer isn’t far
Behold… all things are new…..… all things are new.
Track Name: Holy Is The Lord
HOLY IS THE LORD
©2006 by Dale J Mayer

Let the earth rejoice
Let the people shout
Let the hills bow down
Let the rocks cry out
Holy is the Lord

Let the heavens roar
Let the bird take wing
Let the poor be glad
Let the captive sing
Holy is the Lord

High above the heavens
Exalted on His throne
Reigns the Lord our God in glory
Clothed in majesty
Holy
Track Name: This Is My Song
THIS IS MY SONG
©2009 by Dale J Mayer

This is my life, this is my song
I may be right, I may be wrong
One thing I know for sure is it won't be long 'til, Jesus,
You come to carry me home

You hear me when I... call your name
I know you'll always... be the same
And when the sorrows... pour like rain
You are there

No matter what I've... said or done
You come to me with... open arms
The welcome's always... safe and warm
Because you care

This is my life, this is my song
I may be right, I may be wrong
One thing I know for sure is it won't be long 'til, Jesus,
You come to carry me home
Track Name: Let The Church Arise
LET THE CHURCH ARISE
2009 Dale J Mayer

verse:
Let the church arise, heaven fill our eyes
We will not be swayed from the holy prize
Leaving sin behind, let us have one mind
Drawing strength alone from the one true vine

chorus:
Let the church arise, let your glory fall
Let the people say "You are wonderful"
Flowing from your throne, make your presence known
Fill these lonely hearts with your love alone
Let thy kingdom come, may your will be done
Let the church arise

bridge:
Though some may sleep and some remain
Yet when he comes, all will be changed
In a twinkling eye at the trumpet call
His voice will cry to one and all
"Let my church arise, let my church arise, let my church arise"

final chorus:
Let the church arise, let your glory fall
Let the people say "You're so wonderful"
Flowing from your throne, make your presence known
Fill these lonely hearts with your love alone
Let thy kingdom come, may your will be done
Let the church arise
