“FERVENCY” Album Lyrics

1) Fire in My Bones

(Jeremiah 20:9, Luke 19:40)

It’s like a fire shut up in my bones

It’s burning deep, gotta let the world know

And if I don’t the rocks will cry out

So I’m gonna tell, I’m gonna shout

Of the glory of your love

Of your strength and your beauty

I’m needing everything within you to be in me

 

Of the glory of your love, of the depth of your sacrifice

Of the power of your resurrection and how it changes life

Of the beauty of who you are of the hope that you offer

For now and eternity.  be in me

 

Some may not believe

Some may not receive

But it will not quench this fire

Let me be ablaze with your love and grace

Showing them your way

 

Some have tried to throw water on this flame that’s burning

A blanket on what’s in me yearning

But I’m never gonna turn back, I know I’m on the right track

And with everything that is within me, I cry out for more of you

‘Cause I’m needing everything within you to be in me.

 

 

2) Use Me

(Philippians  4:13, Isaiah 40:31)

Father, here I am

All of me I now give

Take me in your keeping

Use me.  Work in and through me

And I know, I know that…

 

I am weak, but you can be strong in me

I am weary, you lift me up on eagles’ wing

I am poor, you are rich

I am nothing, you are everything

I am willing, you are able

I am shaken, you are stable

I am small, you are great

I can do all things through your strength

 

Father, here I am

Cleanse me from my sin

With your fire purify me

In my repentance set my soul free

And I know, I know that…

 

Not my will, but yours be done

Send your fire, let it come

And have your way in me

 

Free my soul.  Use me.

 

3) Take a Deep Breath

Hear the Spirit whispering to you

 

No, it’s not in your head, you know you’re not confused

Time is rolling by and it’s got a hold on you

You sit and wait when you know just what to do

 

Take a deep breath.  Take the right step. 

The one you know that you need to do

Don’t be afraid to start to move

Don’t sit anymore.  Just walk on forward

You know you’ve only got so much time

The best is ahead- your freedom inside

 

Did you ever dream that you’d still be sitting here

It’s no way to live paralyzed by fear

Hold on to what’s been promised from above

He’ll pick you up in His strength and love

 

There is something more beyond than this place that you are living

If you don’t step out you’ll never know

There’s a future that is bright, a tomorrow that’s assured

And a freedom for your soul

 

4) Do Me The Favor

You’re on the second floor, I’m on the third

Sometimes I bump into you on the first

And even when I don’t, my thoughts won’t leave me alone

A simultaneous blessing and curse

 

I know you disagreed that our differences competed

You say you love my heart, but with the God I love you won’t have any part

 

Would you, do me the favor of leaving my heart

It wouldn’t work so I’m not gonna start

If you want love and you wanna give love

Then first meet my God above

He’ll show you what love’s made of

 

I noticed that your car was parked

In the garage, not very far

I’m trying not to care or to be aware

I’m finding out that it’s way too hard

 

Would you could you see, this torn reaction in me

Attraction is so deep, yet so weak, ‘cause I’ll be strong

 

Holiness, calls me out of this mess

Holiness, calls me out of this mess, out of this mess

 

I wish you could stay, but I have to say goodbye

You know we really couldn’t even try

Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye.

 

5) Take Me

 

You are everything in my life

Beauty undescribed

You are my love

You are strength and you are light

There is no one of your kind

You are my love

 

Take me, take me.

Take me, my Lord, my love.

Take me. I am yours.

Take me, and all of my life,

My love, take me. I am yours

 

You are joy and you are peace

All this love I must release

You are my love

Your sacrifice and your blood

Make me new

You are my love

 

Thank you for your love

How I adore you

Thank you for your love

How I adore you

 

Take me, Jesus, I love you

Take me, I am yours

 

 

6) Free

God of miracles, I believe

Full of love and of mercy

You fed the thousands with two fish and bread

You heal the sick and you raise the dead

 

I’m not asking for much

All I want is just a little touch

‘Cause all I know is you’re the only one to help me

The only one to make me free

 

You never told me that this life would be easy

But you promised that you’d always be with me

So how come sometimes I feel so alone

I don’t know, but I won’t give up hope

 

You formed the mountains with your hands

Spread out the stars, created man

There’s nothing that you cannot do

No one as mighty, Lord, as you

 

7) You’ve Won This Fight

(1 Corinthians 15:57, Ephesians 6:10-18)

There’s a crafty, old, liar

He won’t play games and he cannot be tamed

He’ll come against your heart with arrows of fire

All out attack on your mind, it’s time, don’t be blind

 

You don’t have to worry with the God of the universe on your side

Be strong in His light and hang on tight

To the truth you know, He will never let you go

 

Jesus, too great to comprehend

Warrior, his victory has no end

Savior, faithful, proven friend

And He’s in you alive

You’ve won this fight

 

Do you remember the cross?

Do you remember the battle your enemy lost?

Jesus won your fight, He paid the cost

And the deal was closed, when He rose, when He rose

 

Open up your eyes, open up your heart

Feel the Spirit’s strengthening start

Now’s a time to grow, for your faith to show

You don’t fight on your own

 

8) Falling in Your Love

 

My heart’s falling more in love with you

Each passing day I’m falling into your arms

I’m leaning into your love

 

I have wandered for a time

On my own just to find.

I need your arms, how much I need your love

 

You are always there

No one can compare

Be my one desire, I want to love you with all I am

 

How can such as one as you

Love me so, and want to hold me

Close in your arms, forever here in your love

 

I am falling in your arms again

Your love has captured all of me

I am leaning in your love again

And that’s where I will always be

 

You are always there

No one can compare

Be my one desire, I want to love you with all I am

 

I am falling… I am falling…I am falling in your arms,

I am falling in your arms again

Your love has captured all of me

And that’s where I will always be

 

I am leaning in your love again

And that’s where I will always be.

Ending Verse:

My heart’s falling more in love with you

I’m finding out how much I need your arms,

How much I love your love…

How much I do, Da da da da da da da  da….

 

9) Mercy

 

Break my heart, oh God, right now

With your Spirit’s loving power

Reduce me, till I am only love

For the least of these I pray

The lost, the broken, and afraid

Please, reveal to them your love

 

Mercy, I cry mercy, Lord

Mercy, I pray, mercy

And salvation for them now

And for all their eternities

May they know you as their God

And worship you as their King

 

With your strong arm rescue them

In gentleness, reassure them

That they can trust in you

Be their living water

Their bread of life, the light of their world

Every good thing comes from you

 

Mercy, I cry mercy, Lord

Mercy, I pray, mercy

And salvation for them now

And for all their eternities

May they know you as their Truth

And worship you as their King

 

Your compassion and love shine so brightly

Let us hope and believe

Would you draw them, rebuild, and revive them

And as you do, may they see

 

Mercy, I cry mercy Lord

Mercy, I plead mercy Lord

Mercy, I cry mercy, Lord

Mercy, I plead mercy.

 

10) Jesus, Hold the Children

Jesus, hold the children of the world close to you

Hold their heads high, and hold their hands tight

Let them see the joy upon your face,

Your love for them that won’t ever erase

Lead them to your grace

 

And may you be their strength to make it through this world

And may your love sustain and carry them for all of their days

Jesus, hold the children close to you

Jesus, hold the children of the world close to you

Protect and heal, provide and stand beside

Give them laughter for their pain,

Give them holiness for the stain this world has tried

So hard to leave upon them

 

Be their shepherd, be their guide

Through all their days and nights

Jesus, hold the children close to you

I pray Jesus, hold the children close to you.

 

11) Roller Coaster Queen

 She’s a roller coaster queen

Up and down she’s on a spiritual swing

Free and bound, she loves and hates her dreams

She flies to the ground

And it goes over and over, around and around

Over and over the same chronic sound

 

Whatever it takes, before she breaks, I pray she’d find her way

 

Roller coaster queen, round and round she goes

Little does she know she’s got somewhere to go

She’s a roller coaster queen, round and round she goes

She’s riding unaware that you’re watching and you care

 

She feels the traffic jam’s sting

Stop and go, an inconsistent journey

She pulls u-turns as she’s driven to extremes

She’s above and below

And it goes over and over, around and around

Over and over, the same chronic sound

 

Whatever it takes, before she breaks, I pray she’d find her way 

Tell me why, tell me why is it like this

Tell me when will there be an end to this madness

How it drives her deeper.  This madness

How she cries for freedom. Freedom

 

Roller coaster queen.  When will she know she’s got somewhere to go

Round and round she goes. Roller coaster queen.

 

 

12) Traffic

 Please part the traffic in front of me

My wheels move so slowly, it’s getting to me

The trees are stationary, all the brake lights are glaring

Please part the traffic in front of me

 

You parted the Red Sea so long ago

Your children walked through dry from head to toe

Now I’m in this sea of these cars around me

They’re packing in quickly, I’m like a sardine

 

Can I borrow from the future, drive a car just like the Jetsons’

Fly high above the rest, they’d look like little, itty, bitty bugs

I’d sail homeward bound, quickly, safely and sound

Too bad I’m in my Honda, stuck here on the ground

 

Just one more thing, I’ll make it very quick

I wish that you had warned me not to buy a stick

Oh God, hear my cry. It’s my final plea

Please part the traffic in front of me

 

13) Your Love, Your Blood

(Matthew 28: 19-20, Psalm 66:4)

 

There’s something I want to see

It’s your blood flowing from Calvary

On a people who haven’t known you

On a people who haven’t seen

There’s something I want to be

It’s a bearer of good news and freedom

To a people who haven’t known you

To a people who haven’t seen

 

Your love, your love.

It flows to us with deliverance through

Your blood, your blood,

That was shed for us to free us with your love

 

There’s something I want to hear

It’s the praises of Jesus raising

From a people who haven’t known you

To a people who now can see

There’s something I want to be

It’s a child at the feet of the King in

A sea of people from all nations

Worshipping we will sing of…

 

Every knee will bow and every tongue confess that you are God

All your truth will be revealed and all will see that you are God

We’ll join the angels and all of your creation in a song of your greatness and love

 

All the earth will worship you

All the earth will sing your praises

All the voices in one song

Holy is the Lord God

 

14) Tómame

Eres todo en mi vida

Con belleza indiscriptible

Tu eres mi amor

Eres fuerte, eres luz

No hay nadie como tu

Tu eres mi amor

 

Tómame, tómame

Tómame mi Señor, mi amor

Tómame, soy tuya

Tómame, y toda

Mi vida, mi amor

Tómame, soy tuya

 

Eres gozo, eres paz

Te quiero mas y mas

Tu eres mi amor

Tu sacrificio y tu sangre

Me hacen nueva

Tu eres mi amor

 

Gracias por tu amor

Jesús, te amo

Gracias por tu amor

Jesús, te amo

 

Tomame, mi Señor, mi amor

Tomame,  soy tuya.

15) The Volcano Song 

A little poof of smoke. Oh no, what can it be?
A little bright red. Oh no, what’s this I see?

Living underneath the volcano, you never know what day it will erupt.
KABOOM!

I’ll hurry up to climb the tree up to the top
The coconuts so hot, I hear them go “POP! POP!”

Living underneath the volcano, you never know what day it will erupt.
KABOOM!

Don’t get caught, it hurts a lot!
You never know what day it will erupt
KABOOM! KABOOM! KABOOM!
