Track Name: God's Child
You See me walkin down the road
see me wearin my clothes
You can't walk by me and turn up your nose

I’m Gods Child -- Oh I'm God's child.
I'm Gods Child
Oh God's child: saved, sealed, delivered, bought by the Blood of the Lamb

You see me hurtin on myself
See me payin my debt
But I still love, I still love
Don't you forget

Moses turned and looked away
Killed a man thought God wouldn't see
Jacob wrestled with the Lord
Still led them to the promised land
I've made mistakes been real bad wrong
But that don't mean I don't belong
Oh, You and me are one in the same
Track Name: Backwards Rescue
It was the second for each but this time they knew it was real
In the back of her mind she’s hoping this love will heal
They had a beauty, a purpose that no one can see
They needed a preacher but none would agree

When we were far away, still layin in the grave
Flat line, no heart beating, worthless, good for nothin
You stepped into the mess, You made yourself--less
No on understood, this backwards way to rescue

She is pregnant again her baby daddy is gone
Now there’s one more to feed but she’ll have to do it alone
She’ll take off her clothes and pick up her check
Just do what it takes and live with regret


Insulate your life, close your eyes to the tragedy around you
It’s all around you
And do your very best to forget, the way that Jesus found you
When He reached down -------- to rescue
Track Name: Wrestling
I’m 25 and I’ve lived a lot of life with little to show from where I’ve been
5 kids no degree, but I must raise this family, does your God have a plan
Cause I need a job and I know it will be hard with a record longer than the men I’ve had
My Lone Star card, it can only go so far, free food don’t bring peace

I’m wrestling with belief I’m giving you a shot
I can’t get past the voices in my head
I’m laying it all out, I know it doesn’t scare you, but it scares me
When I’m wrestlin

You promised eternity but what does that really mean I’m interested in the here and now
You speak of love but I need something tangible I need something that pays
All this really means


What if I lose it all just for doubting what if all my fears become reality
Can I trust you God completely
Can I trust you God, Can I trust you God
Can I trust you God completely
Track Name: Lean
Two eggs in the fridge and a penny to my name,
my hope’s not in this world
Baby’s sick don’t know how much I can take,
my hope’s not in this world

So I’m leanin on you, woo ooo, like I’ve never leaned before
I’m leanin on you, yeah, come and rescue us O Lord
I’m leanin on you-----And I know who you say you are
for every need, I’ll lean on you

Humility brings a beauty all it’s own,
in grace you made me low
Teach me God so that I’m not here again,
restore all I’ve let go


Money just takes away the sting of not being happy
Money just takes away the sting of not being happy
Money just takes away the sting of not being happy
But it cannot make me whole, and it, cannot fill my soul
Money just takes away the sting of not being happy
But it cannot make me whole, and it, cannot fill my soul
Track Name: Hard For The Money
Onetta there in the corner stand And she wonders where she is
And It's strange to her Some people seem to have everything
Nine a.m. on the hour hand And she's waiting for the bell
And she's looking real pretty Just wait for her clientele

She works hard for the money So hard for it honey
She works hard for the money So you better treat her right


Twenty eight years have Come and gone And she' seen
a lot of tears
Of the ones who come in They really seem to need her there
It's a sacrifice working day to day For little money
just tips for pay
But it's worth it all Just to hear them say that they care

She works hard for the money So hard for it honey
She works hard for the money So you better treat her right

She already knows She's seen her bad times
She already knows These are the good times
Never sell out she never will -- Never sell out she never will
Never sell out she never will -- Never sell out she never will
Never sell out she never will -- Not for the dollar bill
Track Name: Never Too Far
I am broken and I’ve failed and I find within myself
That I am comfortable with sin - Oh
There’s a place within my soul that no one really knows
But you

You offer your hand and bring with you life and liberty--And you keep reminding me

I’m never too far, never too far
I’m never too far from a sinner or saint,
oh too far, oh no
I'm never too far, never too far
I’m never too far from the God of all grace,
oh never too far

When my joy is found in you and my delight is in your truth
And like the wind your presence blows - Oh
Let my heart not soon forget I was a weak and wretched mess
‘till you

Never too used up
Never too broke down
Never too burned out for You
Never too admired
Never too well off
Never too high up for You
Track Name: Kathleen
God love Kathleen forgotten little angel girl
Ready to leave this world before your time
God love Kathleen hold onto your faith
It’s all you’ve got now wait till Jesus comes Kathleen

Preacher said if you die do you know where you’d go Well heaven sounded better than hell so she said sure But when she got home there was nothing waitin for her So she drug her faith around to see how strong it was God love Kathleen

By seventeen she’d grew to be thirty years old
Every dream she had was torn along with her clothes And the streets were warmer than any home she’d known So she found a powder white friend and made it her own

CHORUS

Why do some have it so hard right from the go
Track Name: Love Won't
How long have you been away
Have you squandered everything your father gave
To distant lands you’ve roamed never finding home
So far from hope and so confused
You’ve been beaten you are broken you are bruised
Filling what’s left inside never satisfied

When you turn out the lights
Do you hear a voice that cries
This is not the best in life, this is not life

If you think that love’s gonna slow down
It won’t stop till the child’s found
It will break the proudest heart
Till you return to open arms
Track Name: Safest Place
This is what I have to say I love you despite the odds, an unlikely pair we are
This is what I need you to know, Iʼm not going anywhere, nowhere

Cause life getʼs hard and the road gets long
Every time you run away, the pain returns

So look right here into my eyes,
and remember the love we share,
Said Iʼm not going nowhere
Listen to the sound of my voice, echoing abiding trust,
This is the safest place for us
Track Name: Interrupt Me
Interrupt my day, let it bow before You
Interrupt my life, may I be moved by You
Spirit won’t You come, rescue all that’s safe and numb
To a world that hurts, interrupt my day

We are but a breath, and we will be forgotten
Everything we hold will vanish like the wind
You are the reality, from now unto eternity
To a world that hurts, You’re the hope that heals

Interrupt the pride that hangs on tight
Interrupt the fear that loses sight
Holy Spirit come
Interrupt the lust steals my peace
Interrupt the tongue that sins with ease
Holy Spirit come


Interrupt the pride hangs on tight
The fear that loses sight
Interrupt the lust that steals my peace
Interrupt the tongue that sins with ease
And breathes the praise of God in one breath
And fire in another

Interrupt the pride hangs on tight
The fear that loses sight
Interrupt the lust that steals my peace
Interrupt the day, that vanity can chase away
Every moment every day
Interrupt my life for Your glory
Track Name: Round The Mountain
She'll be coming round the mountain when she comes
She'll be coming round the mountain when she comes
It's a hard climb and she's fought for so long
But somewhere deep inside her soul
there's a voice that let's her know
She'll be comin round that mountain when she comes

She'll be drivin 6 white horses when she comes
She'll be drivin 6 white horses when she comes
What used to bind her she now holds in her hands
All the fear that's  from her past
Pushing her to greatness
She'll be driving six white horses when she comes

We will all go out to greet her when she comes
We will all go out to greet her when she comesWwith a clap, and shout And tears of joy
We celebrate that she has finally won
We will all go out to greet her
And you know I'll be there,
And you know I'm gonna greet her
All the saints go out to greet her, when she comes!

And I know she’ll be comin
She’ll be comin round the mountain
I know she’ll be comin
She’ll be comin round the mountain
Oh I can see her comin
Comin round the mountain
And I can see her comin
Comin round the mountain

Comin comin round the mountain
Track Name: Surely Goodness and Mercy
A pilgrim was I and a-wand'ring
In the cold night of sin I did roam
When Jesus the kind Shepherd found me
And now I am on my way home

He restoreth my soul when I'm weary
He giveth me strength day by day
He leads me beside the still waters
He guards me each step of the way

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
All the days all the days of my life
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
All the days all the days of my life

When I walk thro' the dark lonesome valley
My Savior will walk with me there
And safely His great hand will lead me
To the mansions He's gone to prepare

CHORUS

And I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever
And I will feast at the table spread for me
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
All the days all the days of my life
