1) ENTER HERE

All the broken-hearted children
Grown up now and trying to hide
Shards and shames we never asked for
Ancient pain still deep inside

Enter here
The Wounded Savior
Enter here
Where we were lost
Enter here
Our one true Father
Take us home now
Whole enough

All our longings for a freedom
Our desires can never grant
Grips and grandeurs
Of our making
From dead-end paths
We cry “I can’t!”

REFRAIN

All the ways you long to grace us
With a love too wide to bear
Tears and toils
From all man’s failures
Lose their sting
In Christ’s dear care.

REFRAIN

2) Fear Not!

I want to know what angels knew
when they said fear not!
I want to see what they saw when they claimed it.
I want to feel in my heart
the sure quaking of His power in my life and cry out fear not!
Fear not!
Fear not!
Fear not!
Fear not!

I want to stand on that ground where
His people cry fear not!
I want to hear what they heard when they tell me.
That the God who brings life
where there is no life at all has a Call for my life. Fear not!
Fear not! (4 x)

Now I want to tell of His grace
to the faces lined with fear
I want to live passing on what He gave me
His only son on a hill
being killed for one and all, the word alive inside the call, fear not!
Fear not! (4 times)

3) Full Circle Day

The last time we walked these halls
I held you in my arms
Said see you on the other side
Not knowing what it meant

There’re a thousand turns till the end of our story
And the final word is not in our hands
Love will turn the page and reveal the glory
Of a life lived looking towards that full circle day

When we come full circle
When the larger truths are known
I’ll be singing hands to heaven
Kneeling down before the throne

The halls are now yours, my love
The path your very own
Your grown-up heart, the fruit of hurt
Now fierce with gracious love

(REFRAIN) There’re a thousand turns till the end of our story…

When we come full circle
When the hardest parts are done
I’ll be singing hands to heaven
Knowing how the light was won

May our lives grow ever wider
Till we meet again that day
All our tears now turned glitter
And the darkness burned away

(REFRAIN) There’re a thousand turns till the end of our story…

When we come full circle
When the final truth is seen
We’ll be singing hands to heaven
Thanking God for all that’s been

4) Wide

A response to my piercing sense that to proclaim the Gospel is to help people understand the yasa—to make wide—at the root of salvation

Take my life and make it wide
Show me every closed off way in me
Bathe the tender wounds of my frail heart
With the widest love of all

Oh Lord, make my life wide
Arms wide open
Heart wide open
Eyes wide open
to the truth of what you’ve done in me

Take my life and make it wide
Skirt the paths I wrongly long for
Loose my grip on all but faith
In the widest love of all

BRIDGE:
So take my life back
What’s yours is yours
Close the door
And open wide the world

Take my life and make it wide
Your gifts in me like living water
The fluid mystery of all time passed on
Through the widest love of all

Oh Lord, make my life wide
Arms wide open
Heart wide open
Eyes wide open
to the truth of what you’ve done for me

5) When You Fall
based on the teachings of Olivier Clement

When you fall
and cry out
in true confidence
you will not fall
into the Abyss
but into the hands of Him
who has opened His arms
for all time upon the Cross

6) Adelante!

Imagine a scene from a musical with a husband and wife struggling and encouraging each other, revealing and illuminating their deep faith in the goodness of God and his perfect timing.

(1st soloist/Ernie)
When you’ve waited for too long
When you feel you can’t go on
When it seems like all His promises are only a mirage

(2nd soloist/Steph, soft and bright)
Adelante!
Adelante!
Adelante!

(Steph solo)
When the true you’s never seen
When the longing’s all that’s been
When the meant-to-be that’s in you’s still a dimly lighted path

(Ernie, bright growing)
Adelante!
Adelante!
Adelante!

B

(Ernie) Adelante!
(Steph) Keep going!
(Ernie) Adelante!
(Steph) It’s almost here
(S & E together) This will all make sense in God’s good time
(softer now, at peace and sure) Adelante! Adelante! Adelante!

C
(Ernie) In God’s time
He will show you
(Steph) In God’s time
you will see
(Ernie) In God’s time
His grace will spill through you across eternity

LOVE RISES Community Choir comes in like a the great cloud of witnesses

Ah-Ah-Ah-Ah!

D (modified B)

(S & E) Adelante!
(LR choir) Keep going!
(S&E) Adelante!
(LR choir) It’s almost here
(S & E) This will all make sense in God’s good time

(Matthew & Liana) And one day we will hear Him sing

E

(Ernie) Well done my faithful daughter
(Steph) Well done my faithful son
(S & E) You’ve run the race I set before you
(ALL Voices) Well done, well done, well done

(Grant from choir) Until that day, we sing for Him

Adelante!
Keep going
Adelante!
It’s almost here
(S & E) This will all make sense in God’s good time
And one day we will hear him sing
Until that day we sing for Him
Until that day we sing for Him

Strong, victorious Spanish finale

Adelante!
Adelante!
Adelante!

7) Prayer of Tears

Prayer of tears
I cry for you
Prayer of tears
That grace shines through
May the heart of all that’s in me
Lift all that is in you
And may the Spirit in us
Quicken something new

REFRAIN: Oh God break through
Oh God break through
Oh God we need, we need, so need a flood of you.

Prayer of tears
His beauty known
Prayer of tears
His love my own
May the heart of all that’s in Him
Shape all that is in me
And may I sing thru tears of joy
That I am free

Refrain

Prayer of tears
The weight of love
Prayer of tears
From Christ above
May He fill our lives with mercy
To love when it is hard
And may we make His presence felt
Right where we are

Refrain x 2 thru plus final Lyric Variation

Oh God break through
Oh God break through
Oh God we need a flood of tears of love for you.

8)Sophia
A celebration of Wisdom based on the Book of Wisdom (Chapter 7) and Proverbs 8 & 9

Sophia, Sophia, Sophia-a-a
In every generation
She passes into holy souls
And makes them friends of God
And prophets
Listen

REFRAIN: As it was in the beginning
Is now and ever shall be
Sophia, the very wisdom of God.

Sophia, Sophia, Sophia-a-a
She is the breath of the power
Of God, the reflection of His
Eternal light
Arise

REFRAIN

Sophia, rejoicing
Sophia, inviting
Sophia, delighting in the whole human race
Just as God delights in her

Sophia, Sophia, Sophia-a-a
She has built her house
And her table is set
Come! Let her lead you back to the Lord.
Come!
REFRAIN


9) Morning Song

My prayer is this windowpane
And wherever my eyes land
My prayer is You see me, too
Eternal gaze and this day’s hand
My prayer is the light in three
Dispels the dark in me

This is my prayer
Please hold me there

My prayer is…….

My prayer is…….

My prayer is…….

Lord see these through
I trust in you


10)Heaven Isn’t Far Away

Dedicated to Eric Trickey

From now straight thru forever
I lift my heart to you
For heaven isn’t far away
What’s true is ever true

From now straight thru forever
I gather friends with joy
To share the love that holds us all
And lights with hope our stories

Amen, Amen, A-men.
