The Passion

Verse 1
The passion of our Saviour
The mercy of our God
The cross that leaves no question
Of the measure of His love

Chorus 1
Our chains are gone
Our debt is paid
The cross has overthrown the grave
For Jesus’ blood that sets us free
Means death to death and life for me

Verse 2
The Innocent judged guilty
While the guilty one walks free
Death would be His portion
And our portion liberty

Misc 1
(Bridge)
I give my whole life to honour this love
By the Lamb who was slain I’m forgiven
The sinner’s Saviour crown Him forever
For the Lamb who was slain He is risen

Misc 2
(TAG)
Means death to death and life for me

Brighter Than Apathy

Seems like I can’t put a dent in this
I stand on the edge of the abyss
when hope in the dark seems foolish
how we ever gonna make it through this?
I got one spark in the dimness
one fuze lit – it feels useless
I’m lost on my own I can’t do this
with just five loaves and just two fish

I got my microphone and my music
this voice I own – I’m gonna use it
one note at a time in a firefight
pushing back on the shadow in the twilight
and the movement’s unstoppable
if you got your soul I got rock and roll
when they’re bought and sold
we don’t stop or fold
wake up blue fire from the days of old

I want to live for something
bigger than me
stronger than fear
brighter than apathy

Trade in your caution in for courage
give me action – not your words
one spark catches a fire
one voice becomes a choir
we are tile – you and I
we’re fragile but we don’t break
when we come together we’re mosaic
and we brave the weather and the cold rain

thoughts and prayers are nice but they won’t suffice
give me bravery – give me sacrifice
i’m not looking for your pity – I want your life
I’m looking for the city of radiant light
on the hill that we’re descending on
it’s your will that they’re depending on
your voice – your youth – your time – your art
your song – your life – your rhyme – your heart
what will you spend it on?

what will we spend it on?
and when we’re gone
in ages to come the sages will write
so raged the bearers of the light
so waged the few with all their might
against the terrors of the night
with no site in view / from the depths to the heights

I want to live for something
bigger than me
stronger than fear
brighter than apathy
with all my rivers running out of the deep
through the frontier
into the glassy sea

wake up my soul – my soul

Reckless Love

Verse 1
Before I spoke a word You were singing over me
You have been so so good to me
Before I took a breath You breathed Your life in me
You have been so so kind to me

Chorus 1
O the overwhelming never-ending reckless love of God
O it chases me down fights ’til I’m found
Leaves the ninety-nine
I couldn’t earn it I don’t deserve
Still You give Yourself away
O the overwhelming never-ending reckless love of God

Verse 2
When I was Your foe still Your love fought for me
You have been so so good to me
When I felt no worth You paid it all for me
You have been so so kind to me

Misc 1
(Bridge)
There’s no shadow You won’t light up
Mountain You won’t climb up
Coming after me
There’s no wall You won’t kick down
Lie You won’t tear down
Coming after me
