Track Name: The Garden
A man standing in a garden,
I look up, I look around
I see a new creation
Good things are surrounding me

Face to face with the gardener,
he says it’s all for me
Rivers and fields and plants and creatures
Just stay away from that one tree

Chorus 1
Woah, this is how it started, from love we were created.

The gardener made me a helper
‘cause it’s not good to be alone
We’re built to live, to love, to honour
With Him as our cornerstone

Chorus 2
Woah, this is how it started, from love we were created.
Woah, with a loving heart imparted, for love we were created.

I know the garden is perfect
But could it be even better
If we were more like the gardener
If we tried to be the gardener?

Chorus 3
Woah, this is how it started, from love we were created.
Woah, with a loving heart imparted, for love we were created.
Woah, it was perfect in the garden, why did we try to change it?
Woah, please don’t leave us stranded, a people disconnected.
Track Name: Promise
We’re on a journey, a journey of discovery
We’re all searching, searching for something clear

Daylight fades away again (the night draws in)
Find a place to lay my head (the night draws in)
It’s time to rest it’s time to sleep (night draw in)

I close my eyes, I fall into a dream, you wouldn’t believe some of the things I’ve seen. There’s a ladder between the earth and the sky and a man come down is calling me

I’ll stay with you, I’ll stand by you, wherever you go I will bring you home. I will bring you home.
I’ll stick with you, I’ll stand by you, I will do everything I’ve promised you. I have promised you.

It’s not so easy to put your faith in someone else
It’s so tempting, to forget who is in charge

Speak your word unto me now (I’ll trust in you)
Please renew my faith again (I’ll trust in you)
It’s something good, it’s something true (trust in you)

I know you’ll protect me ‘cause you said you would. I know you’ll provide me with clothes and food.
I know you’ll bring me safe back home again and so Lord you will be my God (be my God)
Track Name: Shout
I’ve got so much to be thankful for
There’s so much you’ve given me
And yet I’m so ungrateful Lord
But you keep on blessing me

My house, my life, my kids, my wife
My car, my job, my hat, my dog
I don’t know what to say
(how about “thank you”?)

Shout (oi) for joy to the Lord all the earth.
We’ll worship you with gladness, we’ll sing you joyful songs.
Shout (oi) for joy to the Lord all the earth
‘cause he’s blessed me so richly, I’ll give thanks and praise his name.

You know that the Lord is good
He made us, we are his.
You and me, we are his people,
We’re like sheep in his fields

We’ll enter in his gates with thanks
We’ll come into his courts with praise
For our God’s love goes on (and on and on and on)
Track Name: Spatial Awareness Man
I’m gonna tell you a crazy story, about this guy I know
You’d think he looks like any other
But when danger rolls around, he doesn’t even think once
He takes off his boring suit and his specs
And puts on his purple spandex

He is spatial awareness man,
he’s really, really, really, really good at packing a van.
He is spatial awareness guy
Got no super strength and he can’t fly
He is spatial awareness dude
He’s got a pearly white smile and he’s never rude
You know he is the bestsest ‘cause he’s really good at tetris

He loves tessellation
He loves those little Russian dolls
He loves loading the dishwasher

If you need help stacking boxes
If you need someone to put things on shelves
He’s the man that can do all of this.
He recarpeted the TARDIS

He is spatial awareness man,
If you tell him he can’t, he’ll show you he can
He is spatial awareness guy
He’s no man of steel and he couldn’t hurt a fly
He is spatial awareness dude
He’s got a diligent, hard-working attitude.
You know he is the bestsest ‘cause he’s really good at tetris

He was once a boring man, never knew what he could do.
Until the day that he discovered that he could fit all of his wife’s shoes into just one cupboard!

He knows exactly what’s around him
He knows exactly where things go
He knows what things will fit inside what other things
But even with all this mighty power
He still has one weakness, don’t you know?
His appalling claustrophobia
Coupled with crippling agoraphobia

He is spatial awareness man
He looks at it once and he understands
He is spatial awareness guy
All the girls love him and the boys think he’s fly
He is spatial awareness dude
He’s got a super-sonic, fun-loving attitude.
The workings of his mighty brain you’ll never fathom
It’s the first fit decreasing algorithm!
Track Name: Anthem For A Broken World
Don’t tell me you can’t read my mind
This whole disease spread far and wide
Unending love that’s gone to waste
The tears are streaming down your face
But you hold on to what I am, and you have got a plan

Save me, oh save me from this broken world
Save me, oh save me from this broken world
You can put me back to rights; you can save my life
Save me, oh save me from this broken world

From the street we live in to the whole world wide
Web of evil lies inside
It must be so tempting just to say;
“to hell with you, I’ll start again”
but you hold on, you never let go. You meet me where I am.

Save me, oh save me for this broken world
Save me, oh save me for this broken world
You can put me back to rights; you can save my life
Save me, oh save me for this broken world

Save me, oh save me for this broken world
Save me, oh save me for this broken world
You can put me back to rights; you can save my life.
Save me, oh save me; save this broken world
Track Name: Son
Son of the most high God (Mark 5:7)
eternal living one (Rev 1:18)
I can’t conceive the love he has for me.
You name is morning star, (Rev 22:16)
how beautiful you are (Psalm 27:4)
The knowledge of your love has set me free.
There’s nothing; there’s no-one who can compare to you

Chorus
Jesus, son of God. (Matt 8:29)
Jesus, ruler of the universe, all heaven and earth. (Rev 1:5)
Jesus, God most high. (Acts 7:48)
Jesus, reigning at the father’s side for all time. (1 Peter 3:22)

Beginning and the end, (Rev 21:6)
the heir of everything (Heb 1:2)
The author and perfecter of our faith. (Heb 12:2)
Blessed and only ruler, (1 Tim 6:15)
first born of all creation, (Col 1:15)
Atoning sacrifice for all our sins (1 John 2:2)
There’s nothing; there’s no-one who can compare to you.
Track Name: Your Will Be Done
I’ve got it all worked out. I know what you want from me
I have got my life in boxes; You’re in box number three
I’ve made a list of all my strengths
All the thing I am going to do
It must be such a privilege to have me doing this for you

But there’s an aching in my heart
When I take the time to pray
Maybe this is not the way to start?
Maybe I should look to you and say;

Your will be done on Earth as in Heaven
Your kingdom come.

So I will think again about what you want from me
I will try to go your way, I’ll try to live life differently
Sometimes it’s hard to know what’s right
And what you’re asking me to do
So guide me, show me, teach me how to live my life for you

I will ask for what I want and I will make the time to pray
But God, if you want something else, give me the strength to say;


And I read about a man who got down on his face to pray
He said: “Father I don’t want cup. Does it have to be this way?”
He could have run, he could have fled, said “I won’t do this any more”
But he turned around instead, said “Father, not my will, but yours.”
Track Name: He Died For You
It doesn’t take a genius to understand that the way we live today has got out of hand. Humanity is crazy, going out of control. Have we lost sight of our primary goal?
What is it that we’re put on this earth to do? What’s the meaning of it all? Can you tell me what’s true? So many questions going round in my head that I can’t even think of them all or understand

Well I’ve heard about a book that claims to know, and I’ve heard about this guy that claims to show the way to the Father, which is only through the Son. Can you accept what he has done?

He died for you!

There’s a bunch of stuff that I’ve got wrong. How could I ever be right with my God? ‘cause He is perfect and I’m sure not. He must really love me, love me a lot to send his only son down here to die instead of me. I don’t understand why he’d do all that for a sinner like me, but now I have my name in his family tree.

He died for me!
Track Name: Right To The End
Jesus came to save the world. Jesus came to save our souls
Why is he still rejected everywhere I look?
Why can’t people see that what happened did really happen?

So I will lift your name. They will never take you down - right to the end.
I will show it. I will live to give your praise - right to the end.

Will I give my life for you like those men crucified?
Will I stand up for justice when the world’s against?
Well I will stand for you ‘cause with you who can stand against me?

God almighty, you are awesome
You freed our voices for your praise
God almighty, you are awesome
Eternally creative
Track Name: Worship You
It’s a long time from one weekend to the next but I love my God, wanna give him my best.
There must be some other way that I can bring an offering to the king of kings.
I said I sing on Sundays up in church, but what about today while I’m at work or school? ‘cause I got so many other things to do and I wanna do ‘em well and I wanna do ‘em for You?
My God I wanna do everything I do, wanna do it well and I wanna do it for You
Could that be an act of worship too? If I do it well is that pleasing to you?

You deserve my everything

I’m gonna Worship You. Worship You. Worship You!
With everything we say and do, our whole lives and act of worship unto You.

Lord Jesus every time I hear Your name all I wanna do is worship You again. ‘cause You are my God. You are my king. You are so high above everything.
Every time I think about what you have done, Father, Son Holy Spirit, three in one.
Every time I think about Your sacrifice I’m gonna praise You Lord, not gonna be concise.
‘cause there’s so many things that I have to say, and there are not enough hours in the day – so I’m gonna do every single little thing I do – I’m gonna do it well, and I’m gonna do it for You.

You deserve my everything

Everything I do for You; eat and sleep and work and play
Everything I do for You, every night and every day

So that’s my offering, I’m a living sacrifice
Lord that’s my offering, I’m a living sacrifice
You deserve my everything
Track Name: New
Can you hear the sound of hallelujahs?
A thousand angels sing
Bringing glory, giving praise to Him
Praise God all you people, all creatures great and small
Bring your worship to Heaven’s almighty king.

He’s making all things new
And it’s all for you
His love is breaking through
Making all things new

Do you hear the roaring thunder? Do you hear the call?
To celebrate, rejoice and bring him praise
The lamb has come to meet his bride, Hallelujah sing!
For the Lord our God Almighty reigns.

All things new, all things new
He is making all things new
His love now is breaking through
Can you see him making all things new?

A new heaven and a new Earth
An angel in the Sun
Is calling us to join the master’s feast
King of Kings and Lord of Lords is coming back again
To build with us the New Jerusalem.
He’s going to build with us the New Jerusalem.
Will you build with us the New Jerusalem?
