Track Name: Believe
You’ve seen me hiding behind my defenses
You’ve seen me running away
I don’t trust You when I rely on my senses
I can only trust You when I rely on my faith

And believe You are sovereign Lord
And believe You will never change
And believe high above me are Your ways

You’ve been there for me ever since I was young
You’ve seen me take so many steps afraid
I know You’ve been faithful throughout my lifetime
I can take my steps knowing You care just the same today

And believe You are sovereign Lord
And believe You will never change
And believe high above me are Your ways

When I turn back to my own abilities
When I fail to see Your Spirit at work in me
Help me to trust You with my unbelief and believe

And believe You are sovereign Lord
And believe You will never change
And believe high above me are Your ways

Lord help my unbelief, I believe
Track Name: Be Close to Me
How beautiful is the sound
Of the voice calling me to life
You find me in the dark
All alone in the night

And You say don’t fear
And You say I am here

Jesus when I hear Your voice whispering to me
I know it’s all right
You say I only want to be close to you
Be close to Me
Be close to Me

Time after time
I get so far I lose my way
You understand take me as I am
Guide me with Your hand

And You say don’t fear
And You say I am here

Jesus when I hear Your voice whispering to me
I know it’s all right
You say I only want to be close to you
Be close to Me
Be close to Me

And You say don’t fear
And You say I am here

Jesus when I hear Your voice whispering to me
I know it’s all right
You say I only want to be close to you
Be close to Me
Be close to Me
Be close to Me
Be close to Me
Track Name: You Showed Me God's Love
I felt all alone
With the weight of the world on my shoulders
I gave a cry for help
In the middle of my desert
Then you came along
In the flesh on behalf of my Savior

You gave me a drink
Wiped the sweat off my brow
Took the load from my back
Propped my feet off the ground
Sharing memories and tears
We laughed and we hugged
I never knew I was loved this much
‘Til you showed me God’s love

Now I’m seeing plants and trees
Springing from seeds you sowed inside of me
That desert is being consumed by a river
Since you came along
A day I will always remember

You gave me a drink
Wiped the sweat off my brow
Took the load from my back
Propped my feet off the ground
Sharing memories and tears
We laughed and we hugged
I never knew I was loved this much
‘Til you showed me God’s love

And that cup of cold water
Is still warming my soul
That cup of cold water
Kindled a flame that burns in my bones

You gave me a drink
Wiped the sweat off my brow
Took the load from my back
Propped my feet off the ground
Sharing memories and tears
We laughed and we hugged
I never knew I was loved this much
‘Til you showed me God’s love
You showed me God's love
