Every Knee Should Bow

Words and Music by Jennifer B. Davis

 

Verse 1

He humbly began the journey of man

For our sake he was undone

There’s never been more distance

Between a father and son.

 

Yet, God exalted him to the highest place

Above the angels and the sky

So, at his name every knee should bend

in honor of the Lord most high.

 

Chorus:

Every knee should bow

In heaven and on earth

And every tongue confess, He is Lord.

Every knee should bow

In heaven and on earth

And every tongue confess, He is Lord.

 

Verse 2

The world today is suffering, Lord

Yet we feel so self-assured.

Deluded thinking we can

Live one moment without you.

 

Our every breath and blessing comes from you

Gifts straight from God’s own hand

Please Jesus come and show your power

So that we all can understand.

 

Tag:

Every knee should bow

In heaven and on earth

And every tongue confess (that my Jesus is Lord)

With our hands raised high (Yes, my Jesus is Lord)

And may we all confess, He is Lord.

Thank You

Praises to Jesus the King of kings.

All praise be to Jesus the King of kings.

 

Pour Your Mercy Over Me

Words and Music by Joshua P. Stump

Amazing grace how great the gift

Saving even lowly me

Jesus show me how to live

Worthy of Your love for me

I was lost but now I’m found

I was blind but now I see

You picked me up when I fell down

So I could serve the least of these

You give me all I have

You give me all I need

I offer all I am

Pour Your mercy over me

You give me all I have

You give me all I need

I offer all I am

Pour Your mercy over me

(Repeat)

Amazing grace how great the gift

Saving even lowly me

Jesus show me how to live

Worthy of Your love for me

Worthy of Your love for me

 

Your Father is the King

 

Words and Music by Jennifer B. Davis

 

Lay your burdens down

Shed the weight upon your heart

Your Father is the King

He’s the God of everything

So, lay your burdens down

Lay those burdens down

Salvation waits.

Your Father is the King.
 

Peace to You

Words and music by Joshua P. Stump



Peace be still. God is near.

Let Him carry all your fear.

Let the grip of guilt release

Place your faith in God and find His peace.

Verse 1

Peace to you in the storms of everyday

He will see you through come what may, come what may.

He will offer you grace sufficient for today.

Come to Jesus in your sorrow, come to Him on your knees

He will see you through tomorrow,

He will guard your heart and mind and give you….

Refrain

Peace, in your heart, in your soul

He will give your spirit peace

To see that God is in control

He will give your spirit peace

In your fear, in your grief,

He will give your spirit peace

In your doubt if you believe

He will give your spirit….

Verse 2

Peace to you, God is reaching out His hand

He is pleased to do more than we can understand

He is seeking you like a mother for her child

Come to Jesus in the darkness, come to Him on your knees

He will see you as His own

The Lord our God will give you everlasting….

Refrain (repeat)

Descant (over final refrain)

I need You Lord, come live in me

Set my frantic mind at ease

You calm the storms that rage in me

You are the author of my peace

Come and give my spirit peace

Come and give my spirit peace

 

Content

Words by Jennifer Davis and Anna L. Warning

Music by Jennifer B. Davis

 

Verse 1

Father, I know my life is portioned out for me.
And the changes that are sure to come, I do not fear to see;
I ask you for a present mind, intent on pleasing Thee.

Intent on pleasing Thee. Intent on pleasing Thee.


Verse 2

May I leave behind the restless will that hurries to and fro,
Ever seeking some great thing to do, or secret thing to know;
I would be treated as Your child, and guided where I go.

Please guide me where I go. Please guide me where I go.

 

Bridge

Redeem my childhood wishes

   My selfish goals and dreams

 With Your Spirit wash my heart anew

and teach my soul to sing

(solo over other parts oohing for 2nd half of bridge) 

Train me to love and sin confess

until I desire nothing less

than Your perfect will

in Your Peace be still


Verse 3

So I ask Thee for daily strength—To none that ask denied—
As a witness to a needy world, by keeping at Your side;
Content to fill a little space, if You be glorified.

If You be glorified. If You, be glorified.

 

Content to fill a little space, if You be glorified.

If You be glorified. Father, if You be glorified.

 

Safe

Words and Music by Joshua P. Stump

Verse 1

I see the storm clouds gather fury

I seek a peace I can not find

My thoughts are clouded by my worry

The storms of life besiege my mind

Refrain

Then I recall the birds and flowers

Their beauty’s fleeting and yet they worry not

They know what I’ve forgotten.

They know no fear they are safe in the hands of God

O Lord, restore my faith, forgive my doubt, break down my old façade

You know that my heart aches and so I pray to be safe in the hands of God

Verse 2

I toil today and fear tomorrow

I can’t provide all that I need

Though my own efforts end in sorrow

Who can I count on if not me?

Refrain

O Lord restore my faith, forgive my doubt, break down my old façade

I know that Your heart breaks when I’m alone

But I’m home in the hands of God
