about

A rock based worship album that focuses on the Mercy Seat; a place where souls are won, commitments are made, new life is claimed and mission is fueled. This album celebrates a Salvation Army that believes in the Mercy Seat. An Army whose soldiers know the beauty of humbling themselves before God, who get their knees dirty and have clean souls.

Lord in Your entrance You are triumphant,
We lay our branches at Your feet.
Hailing Salvation, shouting “Hosanna”
Praise God in Heaven here comes our King!

CHORUS:
Save now, save now, Savior!
Save now, save now, Savior!

Some would see weakness, despair and sorrow,
But You see captives almost free.
You give two blessings for every trouble,
Ride on, ride on in Majesty!

CHORUS:
Save now, save now, Savior!
Save now, save now, Savior!
Save now, save now, Savior!
Save now, save now, Savior!

The government shall be on His shoulders,
Our Covenant has come.
The Son of Man brings peace to the nations,
Our promise sealed in blood.
The government shall be on His shoulders,
Our Covenant has come.
The Son of Man brings peace to the nations,
Our promise sealed in blood.

Track Name: Jesus, I Come
VERSE 1:
Out of my bondage, sorrow and night,
Jesus, I come, Jesus, I come;
Into Thy freedom, gladness and light,
Jesus, I come to Thee;
Out of my sickness into Thy health,
Out of my want and into Thy wealth,
Out of my sin and into Thyself,
Jesus, I come to Thee.

VERSE 2:
Out of my shameful failure and loss,
Jesus, I come, Jesus, I come;
Into the glorious gain of Thy cross,
Jesus, I come to Thee;
Out of earth's sorrows into Thy balm,
Out of life's storms and into Thy calm,
Out of distress to jubilant psalm,
Jesus, I come to Thee.

VERSE 3:
Out of unrest and arrogant pride,
Jesus, I come, Jesus, I come;
Into Thy blessed will to abide,
Jesus, I come to Thee;
Out of myself to dwell in Thy love,
Out of despair into raptures above,
Upward for aye on wings like a dove,
Jesus, I come to Thee.

VERSE 4:
Out of the fear and dread of the tomb,
Jesus, I come, Jesus, I come;
Into the joy and light of Thy home,
Jesus, I come to Thee;
Out of the depths of ruin untold,
Into the peace of Thy sheltering fold,
Ever Thy glorious face to behold,
Jesus, I come to Thee.
Track Name: Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus
VERSE 1:
O soul, are you weary and troubled?
No light in the darkness you see?
There’s light for a look at the Savior,
And life more abundant and free!

CHORUS:
Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face,
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
In the light of His glory and grace.

VERSE 2:
Through death into life everlasting,
He passed, and we follow Him there;
Over us sin no more hath dominion
For more than conquerors we are!

CHORUS:
Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face,
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
In the light of His glory and grace.

VERSE 3:
His Word shall not fail you, He promised;
Believe Him, and all will be well:
Then go to a world that is ding,
His perfect salvation to tell!

CHORUS:
Turn your eyes upon Jesus,
Look full in His wonderful face,
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,
In the light of His glory and grace.
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim…
Track Name: Behold The Lamb
VERSE 1:
Behold! behold the Lamb of God on the cross, on the cross;
For us He sheds his precious blood on the cross.
O hear His all-important cry,
Why perish, blood-bought sinner, why?
Draw near and see your Savior die
On the cross, on the cross, on the cross, on the cross.

VERSE 2:
Behold His arms extended wide on the cross, on the cross;
Behold His bleeding hands and side on the cross.
The sun withholds his rays of light,
The heavens are clothed in shades of night,
While Jesus does with devils fight
On the cross, on the cross, on the cross, on the cross.

VERSE 3:
Come, sinners, see Him lifted up on the cross, on the cross;
He drinks for you the bitter cup on the cross.
The rocks do rend, the mountains quake,
While Jesus doth atonement make,
While Jesus suffers for our sake
On the cross, on the cross, on the cross, on the cross.

VERSE 4:
And now the mighty deed is done on the cross, on the cross;
The battle's fought, the victory's won on the cross.
To Heaven He turns his dying eyes;
'Tis finished! now the Conqueror cries;
Then bows His sacred head and dies
On the cross, on the cross,
On the cross, on the cross,
On the cross, on the cross, on the cross, on the cross.

VERSE 5:
Where'er I go I'll tell the story of the cross, of the cross;
In nothing else my soul shall glory save the cross.
Yes, this my constant theme shall be
Through time and in eternity,
That Jesus tasted death for me
On the cross, on the cross, on the cross, on the cross.
Track Name: Abide With Me
VERSE 1:
Abide with me; fast falls the eventide;
The darkness deepens; Lord with me abide!
When other helpers fail, and comforts flee,
O Help of the Helpless, abide with me!

VERSE 2:
Swift to its close ebbs out life’s little day;
Earth’s joys grow dim, its glories fade away;
Change and decay in all around I see;
O Thou who changest not, abide with me!

CHORUS:
For the darkness will never overcome
The one who calls on Your Name
By grace I am saved (by Your grace).
And though my fears are strong,
You’ve said the words I’ve longed to hear;
Your voice surrounds me
Abide with me.

VERSE 3:
I fear no foe, with Thee at hand to bless;
Ills have no weight, and tears no bitterness.
“O death where is your victory? O death where is your sting?”
Death will have no victory if Thou abide with me.

CHORUS:
For the darkness will never overcome
The one who calls on Your Name
By grace I am saved (by Your grace).
And though my fears are strong,
You’ve said the words I’ve longed to hear;
Your voice surrounds me
Abide with me.
While there’s breath within me, Abide with me…
While there’s breath within me, Abide with me…
Abide with me…
Abide with me…
Track Name: Christ Is All
VERSE 1:
I bring to Thee my heart to fill;
I feel how weak I am, but still
To Thee for help I call.
In joy or grief, to live or die,
For earth or Heaven, this is my cry,
Be Thou my all in all.

CHORUS:
Christ is all, yes, all in all. My Christ is all in all.

VERSE 2:
Around me in the world I see
No joy that turns my soul from thee;
Its honors fade and fall;
But with Thee, though I mount the cross,
I count it gain to suffer loss,
For Thou art all in all.

CHORUS:
Christ is all, yes, all in all. My Christ is all in all.

VERSE 3:
I've little strength to call my own,
And what I've done, before Thy throne
I here confess, is small;
But on Thy strength. O God, I lean,
And through the blood that makes me clean,
Thou art my all in all.

CHORUS:
Christ is all, yes, all in all. My Christ is all in all.

BRIDGE:
My Christ, My Christ,
My Christ, My Christ,
Is all in all.

VERSE 4:
No tempest can my courage shake,
My love from Thee no pain can take,
No fear my heart appall;
And where I cannot see I'll trust,
For then I know Thou surely must
Be still my all in all.

CHORUS:
Christ is all, yes, all in all. My Christ is all in all.

BRIDGE:
My Christ, My Christ,
My Christ, My Christ,
Is all in all.
Track Name: New Psalm
VERSE 1:
If you could be anyone at all,
I hope you’d be yourself,
Cause you should be quite pleased
With who you are, I know, I AM.
You’re not the sun or the ocean,
You’re not the moon or the sky,
What you are is much better,
Than any world could describe.

VERSE 2:
And do not be afraid of anything,
I’ll give you strength, not fear,
But even though I knit
You delicate, I’m always near.
I will not ever forsake you,
And I hope that you don’t mind,
That I would take such an interest
In you, my unique design.

VERSE 3:
If you could see the sum of my thoughts,
There’s more than grains of sand,
The vastness of my love
Cuts through the dark, to hold your hand.
I love to search you and know you,
I understand anxious thoughts,
I AM, your loving Father,
You are a child of God.

REPRISE:
If you could be anyone at all,
I hope you’d be yourself,
Cause you should be quite pleased
With who you are, I know, I AM.
Track Name: Wake Up, O Sleeper
VERSE 1:
Wake up, O sleeper
Claim resurrection,
Shake out the slumber
Stand up and sing!
Christ will shine on you
Golden reflections
Victr’y, He will prove;
Death has no sting

VERSE 2:
You saw a valley
Teeming with dry bones,
And made an Army
Stand to their feet.
Knit them together
Flesh on their marrow
Breathed out the Spirit
Made them complete.

VERSE 3:
You fill creation
With Your Glory,
And filled the Temple
With your robe.
Shook its foundation
Host’s calling: “Holy”
Gave a commission
Asked who will go.
Track Name: I Know My Sins Are Washed Away
VERSE 1:
I know my sins are washed away,
Where once was death, now life remains,
Despite what other people say, I know…
My sickness, shame and guilt,
Are under blood He spilt,
For Jesus tasted death for me, I know…

VERSE 2:
I see His miracle of love,
It lives inside of us, of all,
Who lives in love, they live in God, I see…
That in Him we’re complete,
Before the judgment seat,
The power for us to overcome, I see…

VERSE 3:
I feel what minds cannot conceive,
What ears won’t hear or eyes believe,
The Spirit gives and I receive, I feel…
God’s wisdom that was hidden,
The Spirit’s freely given,
That I should have the mind of Christ, I feel...

VERSE 4:
I hear the very voice of God,
I hear Him say: “Pick up your cross.”
I hear Him calling: “Save the lost.” I hear…
Humanity is crying,
And helpless souls are dying,
Each one of them is one of us, I hear... I hear...
Track Name: I Am Made In The Image Of God
VERSE 1:
I am made in the image of God,
To contain the Holy Spirit of God,
I’m receiving by faith the full measure of grace,
To live out the resurrection of God.

VERSE 2:
You are made in the image of God,
To contain the Holy Spirit of God,
You’re receiving by faith the full measure of grace,
To live out the resurrection of God.

VERSE 3:
We are made in the image of God,
To contain the Holy Spirit of God,
We’re receiving by faith the full measure of grace,
To live out the resurrection of God.

VERSE 4:
They are made in the image of God,
To contain the Holy Spirit of God,
They’re receiving by faith the full measure of grace,
To live out the resurrection of God.
Track Name: Rescue The Perishing
VERSE 1:
Rescue the perishing, care for the dying,
Snatch them in pity from sin and the grave;
Weep o'er the erring one, lift up the fallen,
Tell them of Jesus, the mighty to save.

CHORUS:
Rescue the perishing, care for the dying,
Jesus is merciful, Jesus will save.
Rescue the perishing, care for the dying,
Jesus is merciful, Jesus will save.

VERSE 2:
Though they are slighting Him, still He is waiting,
Waiting the penitent child to receive;
Plead with them earnestly, plead with them gently,
He will forgive if they on Him believe.

CHORUS:
Rescue the perishing, care for the dying,
Jesus is merciful, Jesus will save.
Rescue the perishing, care for the dying,
Jesus is merciful, Jesus will save.

VERSE 3:
Down in the human heart, crushed by the tempter,
Feelings lie buried that grace can restore;
Touched by a loving hand, wakened by kindness,
Chords that were broken will vibrate once more.

CHORUS:
Rescue the perishing, care for the dying,
Jesus is merciful, Jesus will save.
Rescue the perishing, care for the dying,
Jesus is merciful, Jesus will save.

VERSE 4:
Rescue the perishing, duty demands it;
Strength for thy labor the Lord will provide;
Back to the narrow way patiently win them;
Tell the poor wanderer a Savior has died.

CHORUS:
Rescue the perishing, care for the dying,
Jesus is merciful, Jesus will save.
Rescue the perishing, care for the dying,
Jesus is merciful, Jesus will save.
Rescue the perishing, care for the dying,
Jesus is merciful, Jesus will save.
