Track Name: Seek Truth
There is something I've been shown by grace alone:
that we don't have to live in the unknown

Because God's loving, we're shown the way
be assured, don't be led astray

If there is one thing I've learned, it's the more you learn,
the more you know how much you don't know

But if there's one thing I have found
it's the more you seek the more you'll find the Truth

*see Matthew 7:7-8 & John 14:6 & Titus 2:11
Track Name: The Message
I just wanna be a beggar showing other beggars
where to find bread
And so I'm begging you: be reconciled, flee from sin
Trust me it's worth it
No, you won't be perfect, but you don't have to
There is One who did no wrong,
but took it all to make us right with Him

This is something that's God-given
Grace a gift found through His Son
Salvation for all believers
Justified because of One

I devote my life to spreading
the good news to anyone
who will listen to the message
of grace, mercy, truth, and love

*see John 3:16-18 & 2 Corinthians 5:18-21 & John 6:35
Track Name: Living Proof
I don't have all the answers
In fact, I don't know much at all
But I have a reason
for my conversion
People change, even Paul

Ask me about my faith, my trust, my hope,
my change in heart and mind, my call
I'm dying to show my desire, purpose and Guider,
my love, my all

If you want some proof, take this into consideration:
God has changed my life, no denying the transformation
If you want some proof, take my life into examination;
I have been reformed, born again, made a new creation!

The old has gone, the new has come
Old has gone, new has come

*see 1 Peter 3:15 & 2 Corinthians 5:17 & Acts 9:1-31
& 1 Timothy 1:12-17
Track Name: The Armor
(and yet)
What a wretched man I am!
I need the armor
for this spiritual warfare
I need the armor
to fight against what's tearing me apart

Belt of truth, breastplate of righteousness,
walking with the gospel of peace,
Shield of faith, helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit,
The Word of God, prayer and supplication.
Standin' firm, stayin' alert
With Christ, we'll persevere. With Christ, persevere

Thanks be to God
who daily delivers me,
gives me that armor
to fight the devil's schemes

*see Romans 7:14-25 & Ephesians 6:10-20
Track Name: FOTSC
It's clear that flesh and the Spirit are in constant conflict
And with all these fleshly desires, there's nothing lasting
So let us live in the freedom, and by the Spirit
So let us forget the flesh, pursue the fruit

Love, joy, peace, patience,
Kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
Gentleness and self-control
Forget the rest, pursue the fruit

Keep in step, join the crew
With the fruit of the Spirit,
we won't gratify the wrong desires
By the work of the Spirit
put the flesh to death, be made new

*see Galatians 5:13-26
Track Name: Calling
I used to be hindered by insecurity, brought down by the enemy
I've doubted my calling but no longer
Now I'm living to be faithful, to be a joyful servant for the Lord
For the Lamb, the Son of Man, for the Prince of Peace

I see so many times
(now that I've opened my eyes) that
God continues to show me just how
He can use me for His glory
How ironic that I could doubt that
I can be used by the very One who saved me
I've felt like Moses, saying "who am I?"
now I'm Isaiah, saying "here am I"
Send me

This is God's calling for me
To serve in ministry
To bring the truth to the youth
The gospel of Christ sets captives free

I am all in for my calling
I am all in
No longer doubting
All in

*see Philippians 3:14 & Exodus 3:11 & Isaiah 6:8, 9:6
& Ephesians 4:1-16
Track Name: Adoption
With so many family issues going on,
I can't withhold the solution
If we believe and receive Christ,
God gives us the right
to be called sons and daughters
A new perspective, a new way of life

Got a broken home? Need it sewn?
There's a Father to the fatherless
Feeling isolated and neglected?
There's a Friend who sticks closer than a brother
Seeking your purpose?
Claim your inheritance as a child of God
Got family problems? Get adopted

Be members of a never-ending,
Members of an everlasting family

This is motivation for believers
to reach out to unsaved family members
And a proclamation to make it known
that this heavenly family is forever

Don't neglect the problem, spread the solution

*see Mark 3:35 & John 1:12 & Romans 8:14-17
& Galatians 4:4-7 & Hebrews 2:10-11
Track Name: True Wisdom
I refuse to live by worldly wisdom
the kind that hardens and tries to bargain
It doubts, and darkens the hearts and marks 'em
folly and useless and fruitless (Why bother?)
Instead, I've got a giving hand
because of a Man who bridged the gap
from mankind to Creator. Oh, what a Savior!
True wisdom

We ask, we're given, and no longer driven
by the waves of doubt and instability
Take a look at creation, from the first generation
to the current age, we see God is Maker

No need for excuses,
His divine nature
can be perceived (so see)

Christ is the need, faith is the key
Ask in faith, and believe
that it will be given, freely received,
trust me, I've seen
My eyes and mind are opened to true wisdom

*see 1 Corinthians 3:19-20 & James 1:2-7 & Romans 1:18-25
& 1 Corinthians 2 & Matthew 21:21-22
