Track Name: Come Messiah, Come
Lord, hear my prayer,
and let my cry come before you;
Hide not your face from me
in my day of trouble.
Incline your ear to me;
when I call, answer me;
Days drift away like smoke,
my bones are hot as coals.

Come Messiah, come.
Come Messiah, come.

I’m like a vulture
in my own wilderness;
lone desert owl,
I fly above desolate lands
I lie awake and groan;
cast aside, all alone.
All day my enemies,
armed with hate, curse my name.

Come Messiah, come.
Come Messiah, come.

But you, O Lord,
you are enthroned forevermore;
you are remembered
throughout all generations.
You will arise and have
compassion for Zion;
for it is time to grant
unto her your favor.

Come Messiah, come.
Come Messiah, come.
Track Name: Be My Treasure
Release me from this burden,
beyond my wealth, help me to see
and know it's your good pleasure
to give your kingdom unto me ,
that where my treasure resides,
so there my heart will also be.

Be my treasure, precious Jesus;
priceless gift that never grows old.
Be my treasure, transcendent Father
above all I have, to you I'll hold.

Fear not my flock, says our Lord,
no thief can steal, nor moth destroy
your riches stored in Heaven;
unfailing, Lord you give with joy.
Hoard not, then, your affection,
and to the weak your strength employ.

Be my treasure, precious Jesus;
priceless gift that never grows old.
Be my treasure, transcendent Father
above all I have, to you I'll hold.

Open my hands Lord;
help me to give with love.

Be my treasure, precious Jesus;
priceless gift that never grows old.
Be my treasure, transcendent Father
above all I have, to you I'll hold.
Track Name: Have Mercy
Christ, have mercy on me.
Christ, have mercy on me.

Lord, have mercy on me.
Lord, have mercy on me.
Track Name: Cleanse Us Lord
Cleanse us Lord
from all unrighteousness,
for you are faithful to forgive.
Track Name: Gloria!
Glory to God.
Glory to God.

Gloria! Gloria!
(Gloria in excess Deo!)
Track Name: Be Exalted
Be exalted, Lord, in your strength!
Be exalted, Lord, in your strength!

We will sing and praise your power!
We will sing and praise your power!
Track Name: O Lord, You Are My Light
O Lord, you are my light and my salvation!
O Lord, you are my light and my salvation!

I will sing and make melody to you Lord!
I will sing and make melody to you Lord!
Track Name: On Jordan's Bank
On Jordan’s bank the Baptist’s cry
announces that the Lord is nigh;
awake and hearken, for he brings
glad tidings of the King of kings.

Then cleansed be every Christian breast
and furnished for so great a guest;
o let us each our hearts prepare
for Christ to come and enter there.

For you are our salvation, Lord,
our refuge and our great reward.

Once more upon your people shine,
and fill the world with love divine.
All praise, eternal Son, to thee,
whose advent set your people free;

Whom with our Father we adore,
and Holy Ghost forevermore.
For you are our salvation, Lord,
our refuge and our great reward.
Track Name: Comfort, Comfort
Comfort, comfort you my people,

tell of peace, thus says our God;

comfort those who sit in darkness

bowed beneath oppression's great load.

Speak you to Jerusalem

of the peace that waits for them;

tell them that their sins I cover,

and their warfare now is over.

For the herald's voice is crying

in the desert far and near,

bidding us to make repentance

since the Lord’s kingdom is here.

O that cry, hear and obey!

Now prepare for God a way;

let the valleys rise in meeting

and the hills bow down to greeting.

Make you straight what once was crooked,

make the rough places plain;

let your hearts be true and humble,

as befits God's holy reign.

For the glory of the Lord

o'er the earth is shed abroad;

and all flesh shall see the token

that God's word is never broken.
Track Name: Lamb of God
Lamb of God, you take away the sin of the world.
Lamb of God, you take away the sin of the world.

O, have mercy on us.
O, have mercy on us.
Lord, have mercy on us.
Lord, have mercy on us.

Grant us peace Lord.
Grant us peace Lord.
Track Name: Let Your Kingdom Come
Though the light is often veiled,
by your grace help us to see.
Living in the wake of sin,
in your love help us to cling.

In the city where we dwell,
help us toil for its welfare.
Praying to the Lord for peace,
may we seek to reconcile.

Lord, we pray,
Lord, we pray:

Let your kingdom come to earth
And your will be done,
As it is in Heaven.

Lord we call upon your name,
give us hope for what’s to come.
For you have a plan for us;
Lord restore our lives in you.

Lord, we pray,
Lord, we pray:

Let your kingdom come to earth
And your will be done,
As it is in Heaven.
Track Name: Teach Me, O Lord
Teach me, O Lord, your way of truth,
and from it I will not depart;

that I may steadfastly obey,

give me an understanding heart.

In your commandments make me walk,
for in your law my joy shall be;
give me a heart that loves your will, 

from discontent and envy free.

Your word sheds light upon my path;
a shining light, it guides my feet;
your sound judgments to observe, 

my solemn vow I now repeat.

I thirst for your commandments, Lord, 

and for your mercy press my claim; 

O look on me and show your grace 

displayed to all who love your name.
