Track Name: Soldiers Of The Crown
The time, it moves so fast And the night is fleeting past
We wonder if we can last Until the morning
With temptation all around Do we stand and hold our ground
Or surrender up the Crown Without warning

CHORUS
If we believe in the words that He spoke
And in the message of the Cross
Then we’ll receive both the Promise and the Hope
When He returns, we will see Him

Soldiers of the Crown We are steadfast, honor bound
Protecting what we’ve found Joy receivers
We are soldiers of The Crown We are faithful, glory bound
Protecting Holy ground True believers

CHORUS

In our lives we look for answers
We search for glories and romances
But its enough just to be Soldiers of the Crown

Then finally, it’s true In everything that we do
It all becomes brand new That’s the Promise
You’ll be a Soldier of the Crown You’ll be faithful, glory bound
For the blessings that abound Won’t you join us?
In our lives we look for answers
Search for glories and romances
But its enough to be Soldiers of the Crown
Track Name: When I Think Of You
PRE-CHORUS
When I think of you, I smile How I’ve come to love your style
All the strength you have to share You will always be there
When I think of you, I smile How I’ve come to love your style
All the love you have to share You will always be there

There’s a feeling in our world today
Life is short and our time is slipping away
All we have is what we can steal
Shattered dreams and broken hearts are all we feel
But in spite of this, I know one thing is true

CHORUS
When I think of you, I smile How I’ve come to love your style
All the strength you have to share You will always be there
When I think of you, I smile How I’ve come to love your style
All the love you have to share You will always be there

Sometimes when we talk, our words, they cease to flow
As we dream of places that we can’t ever go
We stare at the faces of people that we don’t know
Yeah, we search for diamonds, hidden in the coal
But in spite of this, I know one thing eternally true
CHORUS (X 2)
Track Name: This Way Forever
I never thought that I would see you again
When I chose to walk another path
I closed the door on what we had long ago
And I never thought of looking back
But I swear You were there
You were always there inside my heart
Through the years And all my tears
All the days and nights that we were apart

Now after all this time, we’re standing here, now face to face
My heart remembers what it felt in the past
All the tears that I cried, the words I meant to say
Are finally out here in the open at last
And it’s all right It’s all right
Now I finally feel the way that you do
And it’s enough Just to know
I can finally feel your feelings were true

CHORUS
It’s not magic or coincidence and don’t call it fate
It’s the Spirit that has brought us together
Now it’s all coming back to me the way that it was
I know I’ll feel this, I know I’ll feel this way forever
But I swear You were there
You were always there inside my heart
Through the years And all my tears
All the days and nights that we were apart

I never thought that I would see you again I know I’ll feel this way forever
But I swear, you wear there I know I’ll feel this way forever
Track Name: MessiahSong
Look at the sky, do you see what I see
Oh, the Messiah has come
A star in the east, it’s as bright as can be
Oh, the Messiah has come
Look over there, do you see what I see
Oh, the Messiah has come
A child has been born like they said he would be
Oh, the Messiah has come

CHORUS
Who Is He? He is the King of all Kings
King of Kings Worthy of (honor and) praise
Praise His Name He’s God’s Holy One His Son

Look at the man, do you see what I see
Oh, the Messiah has come
Teaching us love on the shores of Galilee
Oh, the Messiah has come

CHORUS

Look at the hill, do you see what I see
Oh, the Messiah has come
They’ve taken the Lord and He’s nailed to a tree
Oh, the Messiah has come

CHORUS

Look at the tomb, do you see what I see
Oh, the Messiah has come
The grave is deserted and death’s set Him free
Oh, the Messiah has come

CHORUS

Look at the sky, do you see what I see
Oh, the Messiah has come
He is ascending His throne heavenly
Oh, the Messiah has come
Look at the sky, do you see what I see
Oh, the Messiah has come
He is returning for you and for me
Oh, the Messiah has come
Track Name: In God We Trust
Always remember...In God We Trust

Take a look around Everything we’ve got’s so special
Miracles abound But these lives we lead are so fragile
All of those who came before us They gave their lives, we can’t ignore it
The words they left behind
Serve to remind us of a light there to guide us

CHORUS
There’s just one truth and live it we must
Always remember “In God We Trust”
This land was made by the free and the just
So always remember “In God We Trust”

Solemn print on a page Mighty words on the money that we use
So much to what they say It’s not by chance this path that we chose
In our lives we’ve come to know That freedoms won can easily go
Without a greater faith
There’s no way to hold on No reason left to go on

CHORUS

In God We Trust There’s never been a better way
In God We Trust We’ve got to live it everyday
In God We Trust Just take these words into your heart
And receive them Start to believe them
Walking together On our way to forever

CHORUS

In God We Trust There’s never been a better way
In God We Trust We’ve got to live it everyday
In God We Trust Just take these words into your heart
In God We Trust
Track Name: No Two Masters
Here you are, you’re standing all alone
And you don’t know where to turn
You’re pushed and pulled by all you see and hear
To a point of no return
But don’t give in to all the sin that
Binds you to this world

CHORUS
There are no two masters here
Only One we should hold dear
It’s the Lord above Who’s perfect love makes
One truth crystal clear

Here you are, at a crossroad in your life
Time to turn and make a stand
Give your heart to the mighty Holy One
As He offers you His hand
There’s just one way to go. Say yes or no
And remember what is true

CHORUS x 2

It’s the Lord above Who’s perfect love makes
One truth crystal clear, there’s just one Master
Praise His Holy Name.
Track Name: In Your Name
Some days seem so hard.
Look upon this thoughtless world
Can you still find a time to smile,
to laugh and love this (life)
Life can be cold when you’re tired, when you’re old
Or when you’re weak in the flesh
Life can be such a test for us all
Do we stand or do we fall?
Is there anyone at all we can call on?

There’s One whose love can heal,
One who knows just how we feel
It’s His hand can lift us up in times that we need (help)
Help all you can. Each of us needs a friend
Just let the light from above
Shine to strengthen our love and in our heart
We can make a brand new start and together we can all sing

CHORUS
In Your Name I (we) will not falter
In Your Name I (we) will stand tall
In Your Name I (we) more than conquer
In Your Name I (we) will not fall
In Your Name I (we) rise above it
In Your Name I (we) heed the call
To stand on a love eternal, Stand on a Word never changing
Stand for the world to see me

Stand fast in all we do, let the strength of Him come through
His love shines to light our way, a strong and faithful (help)
Help all you can. Each of us needs a friend
Just let the light from above
Shine to strengthen our love and in our heart
We can make a brand new start and together we can all sing

CHORUS

Oh we stand on a love that’s eternal
Stand on a Word never changing
Stand for the world to see us stand Oh, we can stand...
Track Name: Stand Up & Shout
Their new age season, science and reason are the powers that they serve
Try to tell me and oversell me on the blessings that they think we deserve
Still I wonder amidst the thunder and the lightning of their speech
Do they listen to what is missing in the message that they preach?
All your lives, you’ve run at such a pace
Do you stop to think about the goal to which you race?

CHORUS
Everybody should stand up and shout
Tell the world what we’re all about
For the Saints, for the Lamb (and it’s)
For the love of God that we stand

Your life is empty, that’s why He sent me, just to sing to you tonight
I bring a reason to end the treason of the one who sold you those lies
What you’re after, the final chapter in the story of your life
A happy ending that’s never-ending is the reason Jesus is alive
All of this and more is your to hold
Serenity in eternity is more precious than pure gold

CHORUS (x 2)

“Father, forgive them for they know not what they do...”
And with that He spread His arms and He died, Lord, for me and you
Yes, if His sacrifice is not to be in vain
There’s one thing that we can do until You come again
Everybody can stand up and shout
Tell the world what we’re all about
For the Saints, for the Lamb (and it’s)
For the love of God that we stand

CHORUS (x 2)
