Seize the Eternal (2011)


Learning How to Die: (Romans 6:2-11)


Verse 1:
What am I holding onto? I should be letting go and holding onto You
I try to grasp new life I've found, but all my fears keep my feet locked on the ground

Chorus:
Oh, how do I let go of everything, so I can grab the sky?
Oh, how do I, how do I learn to live by learning how to die?

Verse 2:
Lord Lord, I call Your name. Then I turn away; and, I'm still living the same
But that's not who I want to be. I want to be all for You and surrender all of me

Chorus:
Oh, how do I let go of everything, so I can grab the sky?
Oh, how do I, how do I learn to live by learning how to die?

Bridge:
I'd give it all away (x4)

Chorus x 2


All I Want: (Matt 6: 25-33)

Verse 1:
I've got it all but I want more
'cause all I've got can't seem to satisfy
the thirst from deep inside. It makes me cry, but now I realize,
Jesus, all I want...

Chorus:
Is to seek, is to find,
with all my heart, my soul, my mind
To hear your voice and to know your fame, feel the power of your name.
Your kingdom and Your righteousness, that lives be saved and people blessed
Jesus, You’re all I want

Verse 2:
You gave me Truth and Hope and Light.
You turned my night, into the brightest day.
You said to find true life, I had to die
…to give it all away.
Now Jesus, all I want...

Chorus:
Is to seek, is to find,
with all my heart, my soul, my mind
To hear your voice and to know your fame, feel the power of your name.
Your kingdom and Your righteousness, that lives be saved and people blessed
Jesus, You’re all I want


Unshatter Me: (2 Corinthians 5:17)

Verse 1:
Been broken so long, can't remember when I've ever been whole
I need You to find me, bring back the pieces of my broken soul
I'm lost and lonely, trying to find someone who understands
But now You've touched me, so I give my life into my Maker's hands

Chorus:
Unshatter me - Jesus, I'm calling to You
Please set me free - Only You can make me whole
Unshatter me - Jesus, I'm calling to You
Please set me free - Only You can make me whole again.

Verse 2:
See the lines, the scars, reminders of the way things should have been
I look in the mirror, but I can't see You...All I see is my sin
But I put my trust in You, desiring to be someone new
At the point of perfect grace, You spread your arms and took my place

Chorus:
Unshatter me - Jesus, I'm calling to You
Please set me free - Only You can make me whole
Unshatter me - Jesus, I'm calling to You
Please set me free - Only You can make me whole again.

Bridge:
Unshatter me - Set me free - Make me whole again
Unshatter me - Set me free - Break these chains of sin
Unshatter me - Set me free - Make me whole again
Unshatter me - Set me free - Break these chains of sin

Chorus:
Unshatter me - Jesus, I'm calling to You
Please set me free - Only You can make me whole
Unshatter me - Jesus, I'm calling to You
Please set me free - Only You can make me whole again.


Re-sensitize: (Eph 4: 17-24)

Verse 1:
Pervasive numbness overtaking me - Flooded by media ‘til we no longer see

Chorus:
Come back to life…resensitize
Open your eyes…resensitize
Resist the tide…resensitize
Rejoin the fight…resensitize

Verse 2:
We fill our eyes, our pride, our skin with the disease
Murder the innocent before they ever breathe

Chorus:
Come back to life…resensitize
Open your eyes…resensitize
Resist the tide…resensitize

We will not be blind anymore…resensitize
We will not stand by anymore…resensitize
We will not be blind anymore…resensitize
We will not stand by anymore…resensitize

Chorus:
Come back to life…resensitize
Open your eyes…resensitize
Resist the tide…resensitize
Rejoin the fight…resensitize


Anthem: (Eph 6: 10-20)

Verse 1:
The battle lines are drawn
a war to destroy our lives, our nations, our homes
Until this battle’s done
I’ll take up the shield of faith and follow the Son

Chorus:
My life for the Kingdom - My life for the Throne
My life for my God and King…it’s not my own
I’ll run to the battle, Your sword of truth held high
With my brothers by my side

Verse 2:
Our foe is at the gates,
besieging us with lies, addiction, and hate
But we will join the fight
invading the darkness as soldiers of light

Chorus:
My life for the Kingdom - My life for the Throne
My life for my God and King…it’s not my own
I’ll run to the battle, Your sword of truth held high
With my brothers by my side

Verse 3:
And in the battle’s wake
the blood of the martyrs who died for Christ’s sake
And among them on the field
The broken lives unreached, their eternities sealed

Verse 4:
Oh how can we stand by,
secure in Your walls of hope while Your children die
‘fore another life is lost,
I’ll run to the battle no matter the cost

Chorus 1:
My life for the Kingdom - My life for the Throne
My life for my God and King…it’s not my own
I’ll run to the battle, Your sword of truth held high
With my brothers by my side

Chorus 2:
United in spirit - United as one
United in vic’try through God’s only son
United in spirit - United as one
United in vic’try through God’s only son

I’ll run to the battle, Your sword of truth held high, with my brothers by my side


Save Me: (Psalm 22)

Verse 1:
You declared vic’try but vic’try seems so far away
Darkness surrounds me and keeps me from the light of day
I hide my eyes
I cry inside

Verse 2:
I feel Your presence…hear Your whispers on the air
I open my eyes to see Your face, but You’re not there
I’m all alone
Where have You gone

Chorus:
I need You to find me
I need You to love me
I need You to hold me
I need You to save me

Verse 3:
Still Your voice pierces the darkness of my night
reminding me to live by faith and not by sight
I call Your name
Touch me again

Chorus:
I need You to find me
I need You to love me
I need You to hold me
I need You to save me

Bridge:
My God, I cry out, calling You to rescue me
I'm wrapped in chains; and, only You can set me free
Battered and weary from everything that has gone wrong
But You pick me up and give me strength to carry on

Verse 4:
You declared vic’try when Your Son died upon the tree,
ascended to Heaven, and sent Your Spirit down on me
You paid the price
Bought me new life

Chorus 2:
By Your Grace, You found me
In sacrifice, You showed Your love for me
Forever Yours, You will hold me
All because You saved me


Long and Narrow Road: (Matt 7: 13-14; 1 Peter 2: 9-12)

Verse 1:
In my mind's eye, I can see Your glory
Look to the sky...feel my heart longing
to hear You
To see You
To touch You
as I walk this long and narrow road

Chorus:
This world is not my home, I am only passing though
Wandering this land on the road that leads to You
Until the day, when I finally take Your hand,
I will live for You...a stranger in this land

Verse 2:
Along the way, I see people all around,
lost and seeking with their eyes cast down
They need You, but they can't find You
I'll be a light for You and guide them to that narrow road

Chorus:
This world is not my home, I am only passing though
Wandering this land on the road that leads to You
Until the day, when I finally take Your hand,
I will live for You...a stranger in this land

Bridge:
I do not belong here, but I am not alone
United in one Spirit with all you call Your own
Thy Kingdom come - Thy will be done
Walking to the Son...along the long and narrow road
Thy kingdom come - Thy will be done -
Living for the Son...along the long and narrow road

Pre-Chorus:
This world is not my home – I am only passing through
This world is not my home.

Chorus:
This world is not my home, I am only passing though
Wandering this land on the road that leads to You
Until the day, when I finally take Your hand,
I will live for You...a stranger in this land


Lord’s Prayer: (Matt 6: 9-13)


Our Father who art in Heaven,
hallowed be by Thy name
Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done…
on earth as it is in Heaven

Give us this day, our daily bread…
and forgive us our debts…as we forgive our debtors
And lead us not into temptation…
but deliver us from evil

For Thine is the kingdom - And Thine is the power - And Thine is the glory
Forever and ever - Amen


Heart and Soul: (Luke 10: 25-28)

Verse 1:
Today is a brand new day
Another chance to say,
I give my life to You…give all I am to You

I’m letting go…of who I was before.
Can’t take it anymore
Now all I want is You. You’re everything that’s true.
Now all I am is Yours.

Chorus:
Heart and soul - Strength and mind
I lay it all down on the line
I lay my life down at Your feet. I’m letting go.

Verse 2:
I need You to take ev’ry part of me,
the very heart of me
I lay it at Your throne…so take me as Your own

I lay me down before the Holy One,
God’s one and only Son
My life to You I bring, a holy offering
Now all I am is Yours.

Chorus 1:
Heart and soul - Strength and mind
I lay it all down on the line
I lay my life down at Your feet. I’m letting go.

Ev’ry hour…ev’ry minute…
Ev’ry breath of life within it,
I surrender all of me - I’m letting go - I’m letting go.

Take all I have - I count it all as a loss - I’m letting go
All I am, I surrender at the foot of the cross - I’m letting go

All I am, I surrender at the foot of the cross - I’m letting go...
Now all I am is Yours.

Walk Out on the Water: (Matt 14: 25-29)

Verse 1:
Storm clouds rolling
the seas are churning up to take you down
There’s no denying, you’ve been dead so long, but you’re still scared to drown
Across the water, there is hope standing firm amid the storm
Through the wind and rain, you hear His voice,
and it says, “Come.”

Chorus:
Would you walk out on the water
Would you answer to the call
Or will you cling so tight to what you know that you end-up losing it all
Or will you take the step past what you understand…
and take His hand?

Verse 2:
Just one more time,
you tell yourself, like so many times before
But you can’t let go
when you find that your addiction wants you more
Past the guilt and shame, there is freedom standing firm amid the storm
Through the wind and rain, you hear His voice,
and it says, “Come.”

Chorus:
Would you walk out on the water
Would you answer to the call
Or will you cling so tight to what you know that you end-up losing it all
Or will you take the step past what you understand…
and take His hand?

Monologue:
“In the fourth watch of the night, Jesus came to them, walking on the sea. When the
disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were terrified and said, ‘It is a ghost!’ And
they cried out in fear. But immediately, Jesus spoke to them saying, ‘Take courage. It
is I; do not be afraid.’ Peter said, ‘Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the
water.’ And He said, ‘Come.’”

Verse 3:
The cold war grows colder,
but you both know it’s been dragging on for years
You can’t see eye-to-eye
You try, but you just can’t see past the tears
Beyond your brokenness, there’s new life standing firm amid the storm
Through the wind and rain, you hear His voice,
and it says, “Come.”

Chorus:
Would you walk out on the water
Would you answer to the call
Or will you cling so tight to what you know that you end-up losing it all
Or will you take the step past what you understand…
and take His hand?

Outtro:
Across the water, there is hope…take His hand
Past the guilt and shame, there is freedom…take His hand
Beyond your brokenness, there’s new life…take His hand
Reach out in faith and you’ll find Jesus…just take His hand.
