When I Pray For You

(Dan + Shay)

I talk to God about you
And I ain't even met you yet
Everybody's waitin' on you here
I can't wait to feel your heart beat
When I lay you on my chest
I'm already holding back my tears
I wanna be the dad that my dad was
I hope that I don't mess this whole thing up

I pray you love like your momma
And you forgive just like she does
'Cause when this life knocks you down
I hope you get down on your knees
'Cause that's what I do, that's what I do
When I pray for you
Oh, when I pray for you

I know you're gonna grow up some day
But don't forget to take your time
And take the time to call back home
It ain't always gonna be easy
It ain't always gonna be fair
I know you ain't always gonna need me
But I promise that I'll always be there

I pray you love like your momma
And you forgive just like she does
'Cause when this life knocks you down
I hope you get down on your knees
'Cause that's what I do, that's what I do
When I pray for you
Oh, when I pray for you

I talk to God about you
When everything around me breaks
I look up and hear him say

Love like your momma
And forgive just like she does
And when this life knocks you down
I hope you get down on your knees
'Cause that's what I do, that's what I do
When I pray for you
When I pray for you
When I pray for you

Keep Your Eyes on Me

(Tim McGraw)

Ain't it just like a tear
To go and blur out everything
Ain't just like glass
To fall and break so easily
Ain't just like love
To leave a mark on the skin and underneath
Yeah, when the pain goes and shadows everything

Keep your eyes on me
Keep your eyes on me
When it hurts to much to see
Keep your eyes on me

Ain't it the sinner
Who gets all the grace sometimes
Ain't it the saint
Who picks up the pieces left behind
Yeah, and it's human to hurt the one
You hurt the one you love the most
And you can't find the sun

Keep your eyes on me
When you're lost in the dark
Keep your eyes on me
When the light in your heart is
Too burned out to see
Keep your eyes on me

You swear you're all alone sometimes
Keep your eyes on me
And you can't find your way home sometimes
Keep your eyes on me
Keep your eyes on me

Keep your eyes on me
When you're lost in the dark
Keep your eyes on me
When the light in your heart is
Too burned out to see
Keep your eyes on me

Lay Our Flowers Down

(Lady Antebellum)

Candle wax, like a river on the concrete
Fears will fly if you let them
Pattern leather dress, shoes on a baby's feet
Is he too young to tell him

People come and gather round
Only love can lift us now
We find our common thread over tear-stained ground
Raise our voices up, lay our flowers down

White knuckles, cotton beads on a rosary
Hoping one has an answer
You hung it on the mirror only as a novelty
But now you squeeze it 'til your hands hurt

People come and gather round
Only love can lift us now
We find our common thread over tear-stained ground
Raise our voices up, lay our flowers down

Oh, lay 'em down

Another bad sign, another hard time
Headlines you can't ignore
This ain't the first time
This ain't the last time
Trouble's flying at your door

People come, people come
Oh, people come and gather round
Only love can lift us now
Only love can lift us now
We find our common thread over tear-stained ground
Raise our voices up, lay our flowers down
Raise our voices up, lay our flowers down
(Raise our voices up)
Raise our voices up, lay our flowers down

Oh, lay 'em down

Heaven Knows

(Hillsong United)

[Joel Houston]
Hold my heart, don't let it bleed no more
Sometimes forgiveness is like a man at war
God only knows why love is worth the fall
Maybe that's what makes it love
Maybe that's what makes it love

[Chorus: Joel Houston, Taya Smith, and Jonathon "JD" Douglass]
I can hear it now, the everlasting sound
Roaring like a lion deep within me
I won't hold it long, I wasn't made that strong
Sweet surrender, hold my heart and not let go
I'm letting go
And Heaven knows
I love you so

[Taya Smith]
Hold my heart, don't let it break like fear
Sometimes a moment feels like a thousand years
God only knows why love is drenched in tears
Maybe that's what makes it love
Maybe that's what makes it love

[Chorus: Joel Houston, Taya Smith, and Jonathon "JD" Douglass]
I can hear it now, the everlasting sound
Roaring like a lion deep within me
I won't hold it long, I wasn't made that strong
Sweet surrender, hold my heart and not let go
I'm letting go
And Heaven knows
I love you so

[Joel Houston, Taya Smith, Jonathon "JD" Douglass, and Matt Crocker]
(How great Your love is)
(How great Your love is)
Then sings my soul
Then sings my soul
How great Your love is
How great Your love is
Then sings my soul
Then sings my soul
How great Your love is
How great Your love is

Where Were You

(Francesca Battistelli)

Calling and calling, nobody home
It feels like I'm falling alone
Out on an Island, there's a voice on the beach
Watching your plane pass over me

How could You miss me?
With my hands in the air
I thought You were listening
I thought You'd be there!

Where were You?
When I had no one to turn to
Where were You?
When my worst fears were coming true
Where were You?
I thought you'd come to my rescue
Where were You?

One set of footprints, on the path I'd been on
But You say You've been here all along, oh
If you really loved me, like nobody else
Why was I walking through hell

How could You miss me?
With my hands in the air
I thought You were listening
Oh, I thought You'd be there!

Where were You?
When I had no one to turn to
Where were You?
When my worst fears were coming true
Where were You?
I thought You'd come to my rescue

When my prayers bounced off the ceiling
I was facing down my demons
When my legs gave up beneath me
And I fell into Your arms

Where were You?
When I had no one to turn to
You carried me through
On your shoulders, black and blue
I never knew
The footprints in the sand were You
Were You

One set of footprints, on a path I'd been on
Now I know they were Yours all along

Love Goes On

(Kelly Clarkson & Aloe Blacc)

[Aloe Blacc]
If then was now
And I had you back somehow
I would hold you more
I should have told you more
If now was then
And we were together again
I would listen more
But now I miss you more

And never, I've been to a dark place
Stared loneliness in the face
At the lowest of my lows

[Chorus: Aloe Blacc & Kelly Clarkson]
There ain't nothin' so broken
Love can't heal, I feel
Every day I grow older
Time reveals, reveals
That nothing's really gone
We bring the past along
And love goes on
That nothing's really gone
We bring the past along
And love goes on

[Kelly Clarkson]
In my dreams
You would come to me
Through the door
Like before
When I wake
Every breath I take
Is for you
Now would do

[Kelly Clarkson & Aloe Blacc]
Whatever to look upon your face
I wish I could change my place
Will this pain ever go?

[Aloe Blacc & Kelly Clarkson]
There ain't nothin' so broken
Love can't heal, I feel
Every day I grow older
Time reveals, reveals
That nothing's really gone
We bring the past along
And love goes on
That nothing's really gone
We bring the past along
And love goes on

[Aloe Blacc & Kelly Clarkson]
How do I fill this emptiness?
How do I fill this emptiness?
This heaviness I bear
This heaviness I bear
How do I go on giving my all
When part of me isn't there?
Yeah
Oh, baby

[Aloe Blacc & Kelly Clarkson]
There ain't nothin' so broken
Love can't heal, I feel
Every day I grow older
Time reveals, reveals
That nothing's really gone
We bring the past along
And love goes on
That nothing's really gone
We bring the past along
And love goes on

River Of Jordan

(Lecrae)

(feat. Breyan Isaac)

They say wash in the river of Jordan
Wipe away your sins like I’ve done mine
And the people then they’ll be equals
There’s too many sinkholes we’ve left behind

I’m losing my religion
I’ve realized I wasn’t built for these conditions

Yeah
I gave up my all
When I felt lost not a one of ya’ll called
When I took off everybody else stalled
I don’t really understand what ya’ll on
What ya’ll want
I can’t live, can’t be free
I can’t be here
Gave my sweat gave my tears
Gave up all the best of my years
I done gave everything
I ain’t gained anything
Just pain and more sadness
Just broad strokes and blank stares
No details and no canvas
Nah I ain’t livin' for your love
Case dismissed I don’t need another judge
I done got everything off my chest
But I got one more thing to confess

I’m losing my religion
I’ve realized I wasn’t built for these conditions
Nah nah nah
Nah nah nah
Nah nah nah
Nah nah nah nah
Nah nah nah
Nah nah nah
Nah nah nah
Nah nah nah nah

So I'mma leave religion for a relationship
Never sell my soul I'mma sell my ship
I failed you all because I failed to help
Just know I failed myself
But faith keeps me from folding
It’s all I got left I’m left here with no one
I ain’t choose You but You say I’m chosen
And when I feel lost the cross all I hope in
I lost my religion but I found God
Sounds odd but I’m better at seeing how far
Did I come from the dark is the nights to the light
Irregardless of all of my many flaws
Amen
I ain’t livin' for your love
Case dismissed I don’t need another judge
I done got everything off my chest
But I got one more thing to confess

They say wash in the river of Jordan
Wipe away your sins like I’ve done mine
And the people then they’ll be equals
There’s too many sinkholes we’ve left behind

I’m losing my religion
I’ve realized I wasn’t built for these conditions
Nah nah nah
Nah nah nah
Nah nah nah
Nah nah nah nah
Nah nah nah
Nah nah nah
Nah nah nah
Nah nah nah nah

They say wash
In the river of Jordan
I’m losing my religion

Hard Love

(Needtobreathe)

Trading punches with the heart of darkness
Going to blows with your fear incarnate
Never gone until it's stripped away
A part of you has gotta die today
In the morning you gon' need an answer
Ain't nobody gonna change the standard
It's not enough to just feel the flame
You've gotta burn your old self away
Hold on tight a little longer
What don't kill ya, makes ya stronger
Get back up, 'cause it's a hard love
You can't change without a fallout
It's gon' hurt, but don't you slow down
Get back up, 'cause it's a hard love
You know the situation can't be right
And all you ever do is fight
But there's a reason that the road is long
It takes some time to make your courage strong
Hold on tight a little longer
What don't kill ya, makes ya stronger
Get back up, 'cause it's a hard love
You can't change without a fallout
It's gon' hurt, but don't you slow down
Get back up, 'cause it's a hard love
When the wolves come and hunt me down
I will face them all and stand my ground
'Cause there's a fire burnin' in me
They will see my strength in this love I found
Oh
Hold on tight a little longer
What don't kill ya, makes ya stronger
Get back up, 'cause it's a hard love
You can't change without a fallout
It's gon' hurt, but don't you slow down
Get back up, 'cause it's a hard love
It's a hard love, it's a hard love, it's a hard love, it's a hard love
Oh, it's a hard love, it's a hard love, it's a hard love, it's a hard love
Oh, it's a hard love, it's a hard love, it's a hard love, it's a hard love
Hold on tight a little longer
What don't kill ya, makes ya stronger
Get back up, 'cause it's a hard love
You can't change without a fallout
It's gon' hurt, but don't you slow down
Get back up, 'cause it's a hard love
'Cause it's a hard love

Days Of Dark

(Dierks Bentley)

You can't make a wish, on a star, when they're all burnt out
You can't find that hope, swallowed up, in the deepest dark
The light at the end of the tunnel's a train
You're tied to the tracks with the heaviest chain

Let's chase away, the storm and the rain and the days of dark
Your hand in mine, there's no better time or a place to start
Let's raise a glass, to the pain of the past
And never look back on these broken hearts
Right where horizon, the sun started shining
So open your eyes and let's say goodbye to the days of dark

It's good to feel your kiss, a smile, back on my face
It's good to feel that rush, of blood, back in my veins
Let's dance through the fire, break out of this cage
Let's turn off the music, and let's turn the page

Let's chase away, the storm and the rain and the days of dark
Your hand in mine, there's no better time or a place to start
Let's raise a glass, to the pain of the past
And never look back on these broken hearts
Right where horizon, the sun started shining
So open your eyes and let's say goodbye to the days of dark

Still in the weeds, not out of the woods
But something in my heart
Tells me that this is the start
Of something good
(1,2,3,4...)

Let's chase away, the storm and the rain and the days of dark
Your hand in mine, there's no better time or a place to start
Let's raise a glass, to the pain of the past
And never look back on these broken hearts
Right where horizon, the sun started shining
So open your eyes and let's say goodbye to the days of dark
The days of dark!
Hey!

Phone Call To God

(Brett Eldredge)

On the back of a quarter
I found on the floorboard
It's stamped in silver that I should trust
So I gather all the courage that I can muster
And I drop it in the slot
Here I am, just a man, making a phone call to god


With a sound of your voice burn up the lines
I wonder if you'll answer all the wonders why
Hallelujah

Will I find my place and my piece of mind
Will I get it back if I give you time
Hallelujah

Oh maybe it's just better I don't know
How it's gonna end or how it's gonna go-

Regrets and mistakes
And all the hearts that I did break
Will I ever get to see my Grandma's face
With all the hell that I have raised
I know she's up there shakin' her head and saying a prayer
Am I breaking up or am I clear
When I hang up do you just disappear

Could you hand off the phone to my Uncle Joe
And tell me if the streets are really paved with gold
Hallelujah

With both sides of the knees down to the end
How do you choose who's gonna lose and win
I'm good at talking maybe I should be listening
Oh, is this real or is this just a dream- yeah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Sometimes it feels just like the whole world's bleeding
Heal my own belief and keep those angels singing

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
I read every word you said (Hallelujah)
Every word written in red (Hallelujah)
Come on heal my broken heart (Hallelujah)
Making a phone call to god (Hallelujah)
Hallelujah (Hallelujah)

You got the whole world in your hands (Hallelujah)
Hallelujah (Hallelujah)
Can you hear my prayer? (Hallelujah)
Making a phone call... (Hallelujah...)

Honest To God

(Devin Dawson)

You can only go so long, running on fumes
Before the warning signs and the orange lights start turning on you
I don't need nobody's help
I can do it by myself

Only gets you so far
Before it starts weighing down on your heart
So here goes nothing, no

[Chorus]
Honest to God
I ain't been so honest to God
I'm falling apart
And I can't keep putting this off

I've been trying to deny You
But honestly if I was
Being honest to God
Honest to God

It don't makes sense
For me to keep dragging this on
'Cause truth be told
You probably gave me this song

With a whisper in my ears
I ain't listening I don't hear it
I just keep playing louder and louder
Yay-ay, even though that I know the power
When You speak right from Your heart!

Honest to God
I ain't been so honest to God
I'm falling apart
And I can't keep putting this off

I've been trying to deny You
But honestly if I was
Being honest to God
Honest to God

I'd say I'm not really sure
If this is it here down on Earth
Or if there's something more

Honest to God
Oh honest to God

Stars (The Shack Version)

(Skillet)

You spoke a word and life began
Told oceans where to start and where to end
You set in motion time and space
But still You come and You call to me by name
But still You come and You call to me by name

If you can hold the stars in place
You can hold my heart the same
Whenever I fall away
Whenever I start to break
So here I am, lifting up my heart
To the One who holds the stars

The deepest depths, the darkest nights
Can't separate, can't keep me from your sight
I get so lost, forget my way
But still You love and You don't forget my name

If You can hold the stars in place
You can hold my heart the same
Whenever I fall away
Whenever I start to break
So here I am, lifting up my heart
If You can calm the raging sea
You can calm the storm in me
You're never too far away
You never show up too late
So here I am, lifting up my heart
To the One who holds the stars

Your love has called my name
What do I have to fear?
What do I have to fear?
Your love has called my name
What do I have to fear?
What do I have to fear?

If You can hold the stars in place
You can hold my heart the same
Whenever I fall away
Whenever I start to break
So here I am, lifting up my heart
(Lifting up my heart)
If You can calm the raging sea
You can calm the storm in me
You're never too far away
You never show up too late
So here I am, lifting up my heart
To the One who holds the stars

You're the One who holds the stars

I'll Think About You

(We Are Messengers)

I don't know where you're going but I'll meet you there
I can't blame you for leaving but it's still not fair
And when I don't know what to sing
I'd sing about you

Now I don't know what to do now that you're not here
I don't know how to love, don't know how to feel
But I don't want to believe

I'll believe in you
I'll believe in you

I'll believe in you

[Instrumental Interlude]

If all I can do
To keep her here with me
I'll remember you
Won't you remember me

If all I can do
To keep her here with me
I'll remember you
Won't you remember me

And when I don't know what to think
I'll think about you

Amazing Grace

(For King and Country)

Amazing grace, how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
I once was lost but now I'm found
Was blind but now ...

I see-e-ee
I see-e-ee, oh-oh-ohh
I see-e-ee

'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear
And grace my fears relieved
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first ...

Belie-e-ee-ved
Belie-e-ee-ved, oh-oh-ohh
Belie-e-ee-ved

Now I see-e-ee
I see-e-ee, oh-oh-ohh
I see-e-ee

When we've been there ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun
We've no less days to sing God's praise
Than when we first begun
Oh when we first ...

Begu-u-u-nn
Begu-u-u-nn, oh-oh-ohh
Begu-u-u-nn

Now I see-e-ee
I see-e-ee, oh-oh-ohh
I see-e-ee ...
