Come - Written by Mike Westendorf

Come all ye who mourn

Come all ye who fear

Come all ye who Hope

Come all ye who sing for joy

Come, Come

 

Come to me who seek for peace

Come to me and peace you’ll know

Come and lay your burdens down

For I give rest for your soul

 

Bring to me your troubles and your worries

Share with me your laughter and your joy

Weak and weary soul find your deliverance

When you come to me

When you come to me

 

Four To Go – Mike Westendorf

 

1. Another moment in my life another day gone by

When you add them all together it might appear I’m killing time

Although the opportunity walks in front of me every day

The moment seems to pass me by without a word to say

 

2. The news I have to tell you, just may change your life

The story of eternity, is more than wrong or right

But I want you to like me; I’m not looking for more pain

I want to bring you sunshine, but my silence brings the rain

 

Refrain

What are we doing here, what are we waiting for 

In every circumstance we don’t go alone

If the world is really dying, ‘cause the truth they just don’t know

Then take the three to get you ready, your number four and it’s time to go

 

3. I’ve a feeling you won’t like me and I may not know you

Perhaps the lack of Jesus love is the wedge between the two

But if the greatest love of Jesus can wash away our common stain

Then let Love be the courage for what I have to say

Refrain

4. So is it one for the money and what you stand to lose

Or is it two for the show, your respect thrown out the door

Then take the three to get you ready, Father, Son and Holy Ghost

Cause the chance is yours and yours alone, you’re number 4 and it’s time to go

Refrain x 2

Eyes on You – Mike Westendorf


1. Let's take a moment to be honest 
   I like to do what I like to do 
  The things that fill me up and make me someone 
   Are the things I hope impress me and you 
    Oh,     But when I stop to think about it 
      I have to wonder at it all

Chorus 
  What's the point if my eyes aren't on you 
   It's like playing a game that nobody wins 
  Gonna need your help to keep my eyes on you Jesus

    Cause I'm good at chasing down the wind

       Gotta keep my eyes on You

2. What I have isn’t really good enough
There always seem to be something more
But it always ends up moving just beyond my reach
and again it leaves me feeling poor
       I have a feeling that if I even got it
       that It would never be enough

CHORUS

Bridge

Because I often lose my focus

And I quickly lose my way 

   Help me to find my through darkness 

And see the better side, the brighter light,

 the beauty of the Day 


3. So what do I take from all these "lessons"
That serving people is like serving You
And to be content with all the blessing that you give me
To see my old life be made new
       Oh, and what a better a life we're given
       When our treasure is in heaven

Chorus 
  What's the point if my eyes aren't on you 
   It's like playing a game that nobody wins 
  Gonna need your help to keep my eyes on you Jesus 

   Cause I'm good at chasing down the wind 
       Gotta keep my eyes on You Yeah

 

  Here’s the point when my eyes are on you
      I’m seein  life in a different way
     Living it out as I keep my eyes on you Jesus
       I’m no longer chasing down the wind
Gotta keep my eyes on You – yeah
Gotta keep my eyes on You  - Yeah

 

My Own Best Friend – Mike Westendorf

1. My friend is 12 years old today.  And we’re laughin at all the games we play

He’s my best friend, the kind of guy I’d like to be.  With no idea, of what he means to me

Refrain

There’s a picture drawn that tells the story.   When I don’t know the words to say

Standing in your shadow never really bothered me.   

 Because the things in life we’ve done together, they cause our hearts to beat with love.

Some days I’m six years old and you’re my own best friend

 

2. Fast forward and life has found a way.  To intrude on the simple things of yesterday

Now you’re older, I’m still six years behind.  And I can’t catch up, I wish we could rewind

 

To the… refrain 

Wait for me,wait for me, you’ve run too far and I can’t see…

Won’t you wait for me? 

Left Behind, Left Behind, it’s lonely here on the other side

Don’t leave me Behind – Don’t leave me behind

 

Refrain

 

You need to know that when you come home

You bring a light to life, I’m dying to own

But I’m older now and I begin to see

Holding onto you, means I just can’t be me…

 

Yet there’s the picture drawn that tells the story

When I don’t have the words to say

Moving from your shadow finally doesn’t bother me

Because the things we’ve done in life together

Still cause our hearts to beat as one

Some days, I’m six years old and you’re my own best friend

 

Silent Night

Elderly Woman in a small town (written by Pearl Jam)

 

All that Remains - (written by Mike Westendorf)

 

1. I was born empty, with no light inside me
I was a captive to sin 

Thru the Cross, and the grave, O Lord you made the way

For all of our lives to begin

O How great the Father’s love

To be called a child of God (and that is who we are)

 

Chorus 
Hallelujah to Him who gives us life 

Our Redemption, Je-sus sacrifice

Before His throne all crowns will fall

My time my gifts my life my all 

In the end he takes it all away

Let Jesus be all that remains

 

2. My sin and your mercy, they’re always before me

With humble hearts we bow

Your grace is my joy, there’s no fear to annoy

With hands lifted high we shout

To the one who was and is to come

To Jesus Christ, God’s only Son (and that is who you are)

 

Chorus

Bridge

He made himself nothing

Took on our shame 

Paid all our debts

So that we could be free

Let me become nothing

That Christ would be everything

So all the people

Around me would see (repeat bridge) 

            That Jesus Christ is Lord

            To the Glory of our God (Philippians 2:5-11)

 

Final Chorus 
Hallelujah to Him who gives us life 

Our Redemption, Je-sus sacrifice

Before your throne all crowns will fall

My time my gifts my life my all 

In the end we give you all our praise

Let Jesus be all that remains

Let Jesus be all that remains

Let Jesus be all that remains

 

 Daddy Dance With Me 

1. Pictures in my mind, a moment frozen in time 

The answer to a prayer I whispered long before 

The image of my daughters smile and the joy in her eyes 

I play the role that I was meant to play once more, when she says: 

 

Refrain 
Daddy Dance with me,

I have little hands and little feet won't you show me how? 

Daddy Dance with me, I will only be your little girl for a little while 

So Daddy won't you dance with me? 

 

2. Standing unprepared, I was faintly aware 

Though greatly blessed I somehow felt unqualified 

Afraid that I did not possess, ability to give my best 

For this little girl that God had brought into my life 

And I pray, Lord Help me please become the father that you know I need to be 

And as you have the chance Teach me the steps I need so I can learn to dance 

Cause she's gonna say 

 

Refrain/Interlude 

 

Lord Help me please become the father that you know I need to be

 And as you have the chance Teach me the steps I need so I can learn to dance 

 

3. In my minds eye, I can see my daughters smile 

The dance in the living room is a memory 

I pray that we will not forget, the dance that you've led 

And the steps in our lives you have helped us see 

And I pray Lord help her please, become the woman that you know that she'll need to be 

And as you have the time, help her to trust in you every moment of her life

            So that she can pray

Refrain

 

You Are Amazing – written by Mike Westendorf

                                                                      

  1. From the rising of the son, your glory comes to everyone

And in the light of this new day we see you are amazing

From the life that you have made and the voice that sings your praise

To the eyes that see your face, we see you are amazing    -   

YOU ARE AMAZING

Refrain
Oh Lord, thank you for what you've given me... let the people sing

Oh Lord, Thank You for what you've given me!

2. For the Blessing that you give, the time of Grace in which we live

For the joy of simple things, we see you are amazing

For the Day you made me new, when you called me back to you

And all the times you've seen me through - oh you are amazing – 

YOU ARE AMAZING

3. For the cross, the crucified.  For Jesus perfect Sacrifice

The empty grave that gives us life - oh you are amazing

That you have come to take our place, to show us mercy love and grace

With joyful hearts we sing your praise, you are Amazing –

YOU ARE AMAZING

Refrain x 2

Grey Street – (Written by Dave Matthews)

 

Color Through the Gray – by Mike Westendorf

 

Lord I'd like to run away,

from all the grayness of the world around me

What happened to the colors of the rainbow

that I used to know? What a show!

What do I owe to see it once again

To have the chance to see it once again.

 

Straining striving life contriving a box that holds, 

who I am and what I know

Where's the pretty ribbons, wrappings, tape and packing

That decorates the small gray box that holds my soul.

 

Canvas unbordered... The brushes uncovered

Paint my life with colors that I've never seen, but used to dream - 
Before I learned that gray was color too, 

Before I learned that gray was color too

 

Paint my life with colors seen through heavens eyes

Like the rainbow through the clouds that fill my skies

In all I do and think or say, please help me find a way

To somehow see the color through the gray

To somehow see the color - through the gray

 

In the Garden – Mike Westendorf

 

1. Go to dark Gethsemane, ye that feel the tempters power

Your redeemer’s conflict see, watch with him one bitter    hour

Turn not from his griefs away, hear the Savior as he prays


Refrain

In the Garden came the fall of man, Pride and fear bringing deaths decay   

Yet in the Garden the angel rolled the stone, to show the stain of our sin, is washed away

 

2. Calvry’s mournful mountain climb, see the nails in hands and feet

Oh the pains his soul sustains, God’s own sacrifice complete

It is finished hear him cry, see the Savior as he dies

 

3. Early morning Garden tomb, where they lay his breathless clay

All is quiet, all is gloom, who has taken him away

Sin and death are overcome, Christ is risen- Life’s begun

 

In the Garden came the fall of man, Pride and fear bringing deaths decay

Yet in the Garden the angel rolled the stone, to show no stain remains

In the Garden where Death had begun, where a promise had been made

That in a garden the end of death would come, when the Savior from our sin, walked from the grave

 

Pieces (Written by Red)


1. I'm here again
A thousand miles away from you
A broken mess
Just scattered pieces of who I am
I tried so hard
Thought I could do this on my own
I've lost so much along the way

[Chorus]

Then I see your face I know I'm finally yours
I find everything I thought I lost before
You call my name I come to you in pieces
So you can make me whole

 

2. I've come undone
But you make sense of who I am
Like puzzle pieces in your eye

 [Chorus]

[Bridge]

I tried so ha - rd, so ha - rd

I tried so ha - rd

[Chorus]

 

He Loves Us (Written by David Crowder)

 

While There’s Breath in My Lungs (Written by Mike Westendorf) 

 

1. Who am I that you are mindful of me

Made Alive by the Cross, the Crucified

It’s by your Grace I’m a part of your endless story

So I run the race with Jesus by my side 

 

Refrain

While there’s breath in my lungs let my life tell the story

Of the God of Amazing Grace

When my breath is all gone, with no words left to say 

I will run to your arms where my story was made

 

2. Dead in sin my heart knew only rebellion

Transformed within Holy Spirit be my guide

You forgive By faith we walk in communion

Now I live Death is Gain, to live is Christ

 

While there’s breath in my lungs let my life tell the story

Of the God of Amazing Grace

When my breath is all gone, with no words left to say 

I will run to your arms where my story was made

 

The Lord gives, The Lord takes, So I will say AMEN

I live, I die, yet I will rise again

 

While there’s breath in my lungs let my life tell the story

Of the God of Amazing Grace

When my breath is all gone, with no words left to say 

I will run to your arms where my story was made

 

Final Refrain: 

While there’s breath in my lungs let my life tell the story

Of the God of Amazing Grace

When my breath is all gone, with no words left to say 

I will run to your arms where my story…

Where my story was made

 

Further Up, Further In – written by Mike Westendorf

 

1. On the other side of darkness as you stand in the light

Taking in the beauty and the richness of the sight  

Of a world that you know in your heart was made for you

 

As you breathe in the air of this wondrous place

And the worries of your life all seemed to fade away

And all that remains is your heart that’s been renewed

            The old ways are gone. The new day has dawned

A hope springs to life.  When you hear “The Voice” say…. 

 

Refrain

Further Up,  Further In

Soaring with the eagles in a race against the wind

We cry Further Up, Further In

Running over mountains on the day that never ends

We will run, we will run, we will run, we will run

To the face of the Son

 

2. As we realize what’s happened and we recognize the voice

Reminded of the promise and surrounded by the noise

Of the praises now sung by the old that are young again

 

We now run without fear, we now run without fright

Chasing down the hopes as they come into our sight

And Oh how we’ve longed for the day that our pain would end

            And now that it’s here.           Throw away the fear

            As we run to “The Voice”.       That calls us by name

Refrain 

Interlude
Refrain x2

 

I Will Sing (written by Mike Westendorf) 

I began dead to life, walking in the dead of night,
captive to a life of brokenness. 
Living with a lack of faith, haunted by all my mistakes, 
blinded by my pride and bitterness. 
But you opened up my eyes and I will…

CHORUS

Sing, of the Lord’s great love forever, 
Making his faithfulness known. 
I will declare that your love stands firm forever. 
My soul to save, life from the grave, Jesus is the way. 
And I will Sing

 

2.  Brought to life to sing your praise, walking in the light of faith, 
what joy and peace we have in Christ alone.  
No more fear  though trials come, trusting in the Holy One, 
resting in your love that you’ve made known.
And you’ve filled me with a song and I will

 

CHORUS

BRIDGE

Amazing Grace how sweet the sound

That saved a wretch like me

I once was lost, but now I’m found

Was blind, but now I see…

And I will Sing…   And I will Sing…  

 

CHORUS

PRELUDE TO PRAISE – Words and Music by Mike Westendorf

1. Praise to the Lord, For His love endures forever
For His promises fulfilled, for His grace beyond all measure
For Jesus sacrifice, a payment for my sin
For my life paid the price, that I might learn to sing

Praises, to my God and King,
That we sing Praises, to his holy name
That we cry “Worthy is, your name on high”

That we consider your great love, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

2. Sing to the Lord, of His power and His glory
Sing to the people, tell of the wondrous story
How a man that’s bent and broken can stand before the king
Be called a faithful servant, that’s got to make you sing

REFRAIN

3. Sing to the Lord, of His power and His glory
