Verse 1 For every situation, you hold us in your hands For every doubt filled question, help us to understand For every strong temptation, you offer self control For every empty vessel, your love will fill the soul Today, yesterday and always Verse 2 For every barren season, your living water flows Where there's no rhyme or reason, you're causing fruit to grow For every simple treasure, you give to bring us joy Each day you give us pleasure, your presence we enjoy Today, yesterday and always Chorus How could we give enough thanks How could we sing enough praise How could our limited words describe the mystery? How could we ever turn back How you have given such faith How could we ever pay back for all your goodness all our days, Goodness all our days Bridge Give enough, give enough, we never could Sing enough, bring enough, We never could lift you up high enough, we never could .... Though it's tough, your enough, we never could think about giving up, we never could lift you up high enough, we never could ...

Verse 1: Jesus you're the one, over creation, Everything you made, there to bring you praise You're before all things and in you all things hold together, hold together, all together we sing Pre chorus: Hallelujah, hallelujah, praises we will sing Verse 2: The three-ness of the one, the one-ness of the three, Father, Spirit, Son - Holy Trinity Firstborn from the dead, now the church's head, We're forgiven, he is risen, he is risen we sing Chorus: All the fullness of the deity lives in Jesus, lives in Jesus All the power and authority, praise you Lord for your supremacy. Bridge Once we were lost and far from God Enemies of the King and cross When we dead in sin and shame Jesus you took the blame Buried our lives the day we chose To be baptised and known as yours Washing us clean before the throne Risen through faith alone

Verse 1: When struggling to pray Through hopes and fears today When all words seem to fail You are here When busy working hard And thoughts of you are far No matter where we are You are near Pre Chorus: You are here, you are near, there's no fear, you are here Chorus: Spirit of God, breath of the Word Guide us in truth, light up this world Fill every soul tainted by sin Soften our hearts to welcome you in Open our doors to go where you go Lord give us faith to trust and follow Not in our strength but weakness we come Come to you Spirit of God Verse 2: In confidence and doubt Through providence or drought In plenty or without You are here A path for us you pave With guidance on the way From cradle to the grave You are near Mid 8: Closer than breath - you are Stronger than death - you are In every test - you are

Who has the mind of the Lord? Who has ever been his counsellor? Who has ever given unto God That the Lord should owe him anything? For from him and through him and to him are all things To him be glory For from him and through him and to him are all things To him be glory forever amen Oh the depths of the riches, and wisdom and knowledge of God How unsearchable his ways Oh the depths of the riches, and wisdom and knowledge of God How unsearchable his ways And his paths are beyond trace For from you and through you and you are all things To you be glory, to you be glory For from you and through you and you are all things To you be glory, to you be glory Forever amen

Chorus In the words I speak In the thoughts I keep Every choice I make Every step I take May I honour you On the darkest days In the stress and strains Through the joys and pains Make me more like you Verse 1 Soften my heart and open my eyes To see how you see, to hear people's cries Harden my feet to walk where you tread To pick up my cross for those whom you bled Pre Chorus As I walk on the narrowest road Give me courage and faith as I go Repeat Chorus Verse 2 Don't let me pass the man in the road Whose desperate to share and lighten his load Washing his feet and cleansing his soul Lord may I feel the dirt in the bowl

Verse 1: To be a city on a hill On display for all to see A place of justice, grace and peace That's what you're calling us to be Verse 2: To be the salt of all the earth Scattered far and wide and free In all society we serve So everyone may taste and see Pre Chorus: But like Jerusalem that fell as she left the call of God to be his means of blessing to the world And so we daily have a choice to use our hands and raise our voice, to be the change the Lord would want to see Chorus: Let us return to the lord of the earth, humble yourself Come let us learn from our saviour who served, humble yourself Give up control of your heart, mind and soul, humble yourself God us our goal and the hope of the world, humble yourself Verse 3: To be the light of all the world Shining in the darkest night By our good deeds all men will know So may our lives burn bold and bright

Verse 1: Stand at the crossroads and look Ask for the old path Jesus took Ask for the good way and walk in it For there you'll find rest for your troubled soul Chorus 1: But you said: "we will not walk in it" "We will not walk in it" "We will not walk in it" But you said: "we will not walk in it" "We will not walk in it" "We will not walk in it" Verse 2: We stand at the crossroads and look We ask for the old path Jesus took We ask for the good way and walk in it For there we'll find rest for our troubled souls Chorus 2: So we say, "We will walk in your ways" "We will walk in your ways" "We will walk in your ways"

Verse 1: All the earth, every creature, every tree - you spoke and creation came to be Every man, every woman, every child - you're calling all things to be reconciled Pre Chorus 1: From the pubs to the prisons, We proclaim Christ is risen! In the creche and in the school we'll display Jesus' rule Chorus: Is there anywhere that God does not say 'mine'? He'll make everything beautiful in his time Verse 2: All our lives, Lord, at work, at rest or play, From dusk to dawn , we offer you each day. Monday morning, through the week, pressures and peace May your reflection through me never cease Pre Chorus 2: On the train, in the office We're secure, for we are his In the home or on the ward We will show Christ is Lord Chorus: Is there anywhere that God does not say 'mine'? He'll make everything beautiful in his time Middle 8: Jesus- you should be the lord of all Jesus - you will be the lord of all
9.
Verse 1: Maybe we won't walk on water Maybe we won't raise the dead Maybe we will never answer All the questions in our heads We may never see revival Or bring many souls to faith There'll be days we almost crumble From the struggles that we face Pre Chorus 1: But we can be a mouthpiece for justice, truth and hope And lend an ear to someone struggling to cope And we can shape a culture A little at time And show the love of Jesus wherever our front line Chorus: Ordinary people Called to a mission Walking with The Spirit We make a difference Ordinary people Who are envisioned Living by the Spirit, All for the mission of God Verse 2: There are times we lack the courage And the words to share our faith We don't always act like Jesus Tell the truth or speak with grace Changed from one degree of glory By the one who took our fall Years go by and we may wonder Have we changed that much at all? Pre Chorus 2 But we can do the small things as if they matter most And work as though we're serving the loving Lord of hosts And we can keep on praying to walk in step with him And ask for his perspective, the one who has no sin

Thanks to the folks at Salford Elim Church who have allowed me to try some of these songs out with them (not that they had much choice!) and for the feedback I have received to help me improve some of them.
