STRIPES

WORDS AND MUSIC BY CHRIS SLIGH

Verse 1:
When there's nothing but our pain and our regrets
There's nothing left, but the shame and failure pressing in
Can we begin to lean on You for who You say You are
Come and heal these aching hearts!

Chorus 1:
Our great God you bring to life, bring to life
All that's broken comes alive, comes alive
All the hurt and shattered things will be made new
Heal us, pull us close to You
Healer, pull us close to You

Verse 2:
Give us faith to reach out for You in the dark when every step is hard
Lead us further than we've ever gone before
Prove there's more than what the past has shown so far
Come and heal these aching hearts!

Chorus 1

Bridge:
You were hated and forsaken
You took our grief and shame and made them
Something beautiful and by Your stripes we're healed
All the weak and hurt and broken
You took upon Yourself to make them
Something beautiful and by Your stripes we're healed

Chorus 1

Chorus 2:
Our great God You gave Your life, gave Your life
So broken things could come alive, come alive
You make all the hurt and shattered things brand new
So heal us, pull us close to You
Healer, pull us close to You

BACKWARDS

WORDS AND MUSIC BY CHRIS SLIGH

Verse 1:
Outlandish love, how can it be a perfect King chose death to prove
In death to self, true life begins and I receive by what I lose?
The mystery of grace: You pursue even when I turn away

Chorus:
You turn me around, everything upside down
And I see clearly now there's only after
You overcame my curse and put death in reverse
Gave imperfection worth
You turn things backwards ... backwards ...

Verse 2:
Forgotten wrong, how can it be that fallen man is lifted up?
The worst of all forgiven still and hope alone is hope enough
The paradox of grace: You pursue even when I turn away

Chorus

Bridge:
How can it be that I should gain
From your death and all of Your pain
Amazing love, amazing grace
You chose even though I turned away
How can it be that I should gain
From Your death and all of Your pain
Amazing love, amazing grace
You chose me even though I turned away
Even though I turn away

Chorus

MORE OF YOU

WORDS AND MUSIC BY CHRIS SLIGH

Verse 1:
In the desert, in a dry and weary land we thirst for You
In the darkness, when we cannot see Your hand
You still lead us
We have not forgotten what You've done
Or the mighty works held in Your hand
So show Yourself and let Your kingdom reign
Here as in, here as in heaven

Chorus:
Love come down, fall down on us
We long for more - we long for more
We long for more of You
Fire fall down, fall down on us
We long for more - we long for more
We long for more of You

We have not forsaken You, my God
We come humbly to Your throne for mercy
So show Your love and let Your kingdom come
Here as in, here as in heaven

Make me who You're wanting me to be
More of You and less of me
Make me who You're wanting me to be

YOUR LOVE (THANK YOU)

WORDS AND MUSIC BY CHRIS SLIGH

Verse 1:
What can still my heart again?
What can wash away my sin?
What would send Your Son to die for me?

When weakness tames my strongest parts
And failure overruns my heart
What restores my soul and gives me peace?

Chorus:
It's a mighty roar and a healing flood
It's an outstretched hand, it's a Savior's blood
There is strength, there is power
There will always be more than enough
It's Your promise, Your vow
It's Your love

You reconcile the worst I've done
Go further than I've ever run
When I was lost, You gave Your only Son

ALL TO YOU (I SURRENDER)

WORDS AND MUSIC BY CHRIS SLIGH

Verse 1:
God in heaven, King of mercy
I have wandered far from You
I chased the world and all its glory
It feels I've done the things love can't undo
Could You forgive me?
Can You love me?
I'm falling at Your feet just as I am

Chorus:
These empty hands, I surrender
This faithless heart, I surrender
My everything, my all to give
My hopes and fears, my brokenness
I surrender - I surrender all - all
I surrender all to You

Verse 2:
Full forgiveness and tender mercies
You have covered all my sin
But still I live as if I'm wandering
I've run away from grace and love again
Will You forgive me?
Do You still love me?
I'm falling at Your feet just as I am

Chorus - Interlude

Bridge:
Come down, pour out, let loose upon this place
Tear down all walls that keep us from Your grace
Come now, let doubts be shattered and erased
We lift our hands ... we lift our hands
We lift our hands to worship You

Chorus 2:
These empty hands, we surrender
These faithless hearts, we surrender
Our everything, our all to give
Our hopes and fears, our brokenness
We surrender - we surrender all - all
We surrender all to You

MYSTERY OF LOVE

Lost in the width and the breadth of Your presence
Stumbling into the depths of Your heart
I come face to face with a beauty relentless
And come undone - I come undone

As I fall further and further into
The depths of Your unending truth
The deeper and deeper I fall I see the mystery of love

Forgiveness has come, brought light to my darkness
You conquered my sin, traded death for my life
So I could be free, Your wounds were my pardon
And all the wrong will be made right

You have me I'm won
Your love's overcome me

The deeper I go
The more I discover
