Newsboys Lyrics

I'm Not Ashamed

I'm not ashamed to let you know
I want this light in me to show
I'm not ashamed to speak the name of Jesus Christ

What are we sneaking around for?
Who are we trying to please?
Shrugging off sin,
apologizing like we're spreading
some kind of disease
I'm saying "No way. No way."

Chorus

This one warns it's a lost cause
save your testimonies for churchtime
The other ones state you'd better wait
until you do a little market research
I'm saying "No way. No way

Shine

Dull as dirt
You can't assert the kind of light
That might persuade
A strict dictator to retire
Fire the army
Teach the poor origami
The truth is in
The proof is when
You hear your heart
Start asking, "What's my motivation?"

And try as you may, there isn't a way
To explain the kind of change
That would make an Eskimo renounce fur
That would make a vegetarian barbecue hamster
Unless you can trace this about face
To a certain sign...

Shine
Make 'em wonder what you've got
Make 'em wish that they were not
On the outside looking bored
Shine
Let it shine before all men
Let 'em see good works and then
Let 'em glorify the Lord

Out of the shaker and onto the plate
It isn't Karma
It sure ain't fate
That would make a Deadhead sell his van
That would make a schizophrenic turn in his crayon
Oprah freaks and science seeks a rationale
That shall excuse this strange behavior

When you let it shine
You will inspire
The kind of entire turnaround
That would make a bouncer take ballet
(Even bouncers who aren't happy)
But out of the glare
With nowhere to turn
You ain't gonna learn it on
"What's My Line?"

Shine

Take Me To Your Leader

Isabelle is a belly dancer
With a kleptomaniac's restraint
Tried stealing Helena's hand basket, made a fast getaway,
But McQueen she ain't
At the courtroom Joshua judges her ruthlessly
On account of Ruth walking out on him
In the Big House Isabelle is a-telling all
To the chaplain who's become her friend

She says:
I don't know why you care
I don't know what's out there
I don't know where or how
Just take me to your leader now
Take me to your leader now

Justin is adjustin' to 
The odor from Theodore's evergreen incense
But aroma therapy don't make him any younger
Than Oliver's all liver supplements
His late mate Merrilee merrily said immortality
Can't be bought ina jar
This just in: Justin's had enough of cure-alls,
Gonna quiz the neighbor kid with the fish on his car

He says:
I don't know why you care
I don't know what's out there
I don't know how it's done
Just take me to your leader, son

I see you've got the joy
I've seen you live it, boy

It's real, it's free, it's fun
So take me to your leader, son
Take me to your leader, son

They don't know why we care
They don't know what's out there
They don't know how it's done
Let's take 'em to our Leader's Son

They see we've got the joy
They see us live it, oi
It's real, it's free, it's fun
Let's take 'em to our Leader's Son

Entertaining Angels

One to another
Do You remember me
I feel so small
Are You listening tonight

So temporary
Things that I have seen
I ran so far
Will You take me back again

Entertaining angels
By the light of my t.v. screen
24-7 You wait for me

Entertaining angels
By the time I fall to my knees
Host of Heaven, sing over me

One to another
The feelings in between
I won't let go
Of all You taught me - alright

Close as a brother
The way we used to be
I'll hold my breath
And wait for You to breathe

Entertaining angels
By the light of my t.v. screen
24-7 You wait for me

Entertaining angels
While the night becomes history
Host of heaven, sing over me

Love Liberty Disco

and if I told you there's somebody who loves you 
would you say, hey, show me that face 
and if I told you that your feeling was actual 
would you say, hey, take me to that place 
and if I said there is a family 
a body that moves as one 
oh do you feel the LOVE that invites us,
the LIBERTY that excites us 
the DISCO has just begun 
it's just begun 

Chorus 
give me LOVE, give me LIBERTY, DISCO 
the place everybody in the family's found 
on that day, we will all be happy people 
when LOVE, LIBERTY, DISCO's in town 

and as we step into in the light of the lover 
we're all the same though we're rich or poor 
and, you know it's never been good for a man to be alone 
so come on in your name's on the door 
what are we waiting for? 

- Chorus - 

all our fears are turning 'round 
fall down and meet your maker 
where our true selves we'll be found 
callin' out to every lonely soul 

- Chorus (5x) -

It Is You

As we lift our hands
Will You meet us here
As we call on Your Name
Will You meet us here
We have come to this place
To worship You
God of mercy and grace

It is You 
We adore
It is You
Praises are for 
Only You
The heavens declare
It is You
It is You

And holy, holy is our God Almighty
And holy, holy is His name alone, yeah
And holy, holy is our God Almighty
And holy, holy is His name alone

It is you
We adore
It is You
Only You

As we lift up hands
AS we call on Your name 
Will you visit this place
By Your mercy and grace

He Reigns

It's the song of the redeemed
Rising from the African plain
It's the song of the forgiven
Drowning out the Amazon rain
The song of Asian believers
Filled with God's holy fire
It's every tribe, every tongue, every nation
A love song born of a grateful choir

(CHOURS)
It's all God's children singing
Glory, glory, hallelujah, He reigns
He reigns
It's all God's children singing
Glory, glory, hallelujah, He reigns
He reigns

Let it rise above the four winds
Caught up in the heavenly sound
Let praises echo from the towers of cathedrals
To the faithful gathered underground
Of all the songs sung from the dawn of creation
Some were meant to persist
Of all the bells rung from a thousand steeples
None rings truer than this

And all the powers of darkness
Tremble at what they've just heard
'Cause all the powers of darkness
Can't drown out a single word

(CHOURS)
When all God's children sing out
Glory, glory, hallelujah, He reigns
He reigns
All God's children sing out
Glory, glory, hallelujah, He reigns
He Reigns
All God's children sing out
Glory, glory, hallelujah, He reigns
He Reigns

Something Beautiful

I wanna start it over 
I wanna start again 
I wanna a new beginning 
One without an end
I feel it inside 
Calling out to me

Chorus:
It's a voice that whispers my name
It's a kiss without any shame
Something beautiful
Like a song that stirs in my head 
Singing love will take us where
Somethings beautiful

I've heard it in the silence
Seen it on a face
I've felt it in the long hour
Like a sweet embrace
I know this is true
It's calling out to me

Chorus:

It's the child on her wedding day
It's the daddy that gives her away
Something beautiful
When we laugh so hard we cry
Oh the love between you and I
Something beautiful

Chorus:

It's the child on her wedding day
It's the daddy that gives her away
Something beautiful
When we laugh so hard we cry
It's the love between you and I
Something beautiful

 

Steven Curtis Chapman Lyrics

Heaven In The Real World

Eph. 2:12-14; Jn. 1:14

I saw it again today in the face of a little child
Looking through eyes of fear and uncertainty
It echoed in a cry for freedom across the street and across the miles
A cry from the heart to find the missing part

Where is the hope where is the peace
That will make this life complete
For every man, woman, boy and girl
Looking for heaven in the real world

To stand in the pouring rain and believe the sun will shine again
To know that the grave is not the end
To feel the embrace of grace and cross the line where real life begins
To know in your heart you've found the missing part

There is a hope there is a peace
That will make this life complete
For every man, woman, boy and girl
Looking for heaven in the real world

It happened one night with a tiny baby's birth
God heard creation crying and He sent heaven to earth

He is the hope He is the peace
That will make this life complete
For every man, woman, boy and girl
Heaven has come to the real world
He is the peace
That will make this life complete
For every man woman boy and girl
Looking for heaven in the real world
Heaven has come to the real world

The Great Adventure

1 Cor. 2:9, 10; Eph 2:4-10

Saddle up your horses

Started out this morning in the usual way
Chasing thoughts inside my head of all I had to do today
Another time around the circle try to make it better than the last

I opened up the Bible and I read about me
Said I'd been a prisoner and God's grace had set me free
And somewhere between the pages it hit me like a lightning bolt
I saw a big frontier in front of me and I heard somebody say "let's go"! 

Saddle up your horses we've got a trail to blaze
Through the wild blue yonder of God's amazing grace
Let's follow our leader into the glorious unknown
This is a life like no other - this is The Great Adventure

Come on get ready for the ride of your life
Gonna leave long faced religion in a cloud of dust behind
And discover all the new horizons just waiting to be explored
This is what we were created for 

Saddle up your horses we've got a trail to blaze
Through the wild blue yonder of God's amazing grace
Let's follow our leader into the glorious unknown
This is a life like no other - this is The Great Adventure

We'll travel over, over mountains so high
We'll go through valleys below
Still through it all we'll find that
This is the greatest journey that the human heart will ever see
The love of God will take us far beyond our wildest dreams

Yeah... oh saddle up your horses... come on get ready to ride 

Saddle up your horses we've got a trail to blaze
Through the wild blue yonder of God's amazing grace
Let's follow our leader into the glorious unknown
This is a life like no other - this is The Great Adventure

Dive

Rom. 11:33-36; Eph. 3:16-19

The long awaited rains
Have fallen hard upon the thirst ground
And carved their way to where
The wild and rushing river can be found
And like the rains
I have been carried here to where the river flows, yeah
My heart is racihng and my knee are weak
As I walk to the edge
I know there is not turning back
Once my feet have left the ledge
And in the rush I hear a voice
That's telling me it's time to take the leap of faith
So here I go

I'm diving in, I'm going deep in over my head, I want to be
Caught in the rush, lost in the flow, in over my head, I want to go
The river's deep, the river's wide, the river's water is alive
So sink or swim, I'm diving in

There is a supernatural power
In this might river's flow
It can bring the dead to life
And it can fill an empty soul
And give a heart the only thing
Worth living and worth dying for, yeah
But we will never know the awesome power
Of the grace of God
Until we let ourselves get swept away
Into this holy flood
So if you'll take my hand
We'll close our eyes and count to three
And take the leap of faith
Come on let's go

Live Out Loud

Imagine this 
I get a phone call from Regis - 
he says "Do you want to be a millionaire?" 
They put me on a show and I win with two lifelines to spare 

Picture this 
I act like nothing ever happened 
and bury all the money in a coffee can 
Well, I've been given more than Regis ever gave away 
I was a dead man who was called to come out of my grave 
I think it's time for makin' some noise 

Wake the neighbors 
Get the word out 
Come on, crank up the music, climb a mountain and shout 
This is life we've been given, made to be lived out 
So, la, la, la, la, live out loud 

Think about this 
Try to keep a bird from singing after it's soared up in the sky 
Give the sun a cloudless day and tell it not to shine 

Think about this 
If we really have been given the gift of life that will never end 
And if we have been filled with living hope, we're gonna overflow 
And if God's love is burning in our hearts, we're gonna glow 
There's just no way to keep it in 

repeat chorus 

So, la, la, la, la, live out loud 
Live out loud 
Everybody 
La, la, la...la, la, la...la, la, la, live out loud 
I wanna hear everybody 
La, la, la...la, la, la...la, la, la, live out loud 

Every corner of creation is a living declaration 
Come join the song we were made to sing 

repeat chorus


 

dc Talk Lyrics

dc Talk - Jesus Is Just Alright Lyrics

From the album Free At Last

Jesus is still alright with me, Jesus is still alright oh yeah 
Jesus is still alright with me, Jesus is still alright 

Toby Mac, and the Mac is back no slack, 
on a DC track that's jacked beyond comprehension, 
I believe that I failed to mention that 
there's a lack of recognition, when it comes to His position, 
'cause if Christ can't be crossed over, then I'll keep my beat up NOVA. 
Jesus is still alright with me, Jesus is still alright oh yeah 
Jesus is still alright with me, Jesus is still alright 

I don't care what they may say, I don't care what they may do, 
I don't care what they may say, Jesus is still alright 

Back in place, and I'm all up in your face, 
with a rhyme that I embrace, like a mother to her child, 
I'm kicking it Jesus-style, to the ones that think they heard, 
I did use the "J" word,'cause I ain't too soft to say it, 
even if DJ's don't play it 

I'm down with the one who is known as the Son 
or the G to the O to the D never done. 
Wit the flow in the know on the go like a pro not for show 
'cause I ain't in the biz for the dough or the me or the ray, 
all the dough's gotta stay 'cause I can't, 
no I can't, take it home anyway. 
Never trite when I write 'cause the Lord is my light 
and His Word is my bond so ya know He's alright.

dc Talk - Jesus Freak Lyrics

From the album Jesus Freak

[What will people think
When they hear that I'm a Jesus Freak?
What will people do
When they find that's it's true?]

Separated, I cut myself clean
From a past that comes back in my darkest of dreams
Been apprehended by a spiritual force
And a grace that replaced all the me I've divorced

I saw a man with tat on his big fat belly
It wiggled around like marmalade jelly
It took me a while to catch what it said
Cause I had to match the rhythm
Of his belly with my head
'Jesus Saves' is what it raved in a typical tattoo green
He stood on a box in the middle of the city
And claimed he had a dream

(chorus)
What will people think
When they hear that I'm a Jesus freak
What will people do when they find that it's true
I don't really care if they label me a Jesus freak
There ain't no disguising the truth

Kamikaze, my death is gain
I've been marked by my Maker
A peculiar display
The high and lofty, they see me as weak
Cause I won't live and die for the power they seek

There was a man from the desert with naps in his head 
The sand that he walked was also his bed 
The words that he spoke made the people assume 
There wasn't too much left in the upper room 
With scabss on his back and hair on his face 
They thought he was strange by the locusts he ate 
The Pharisees tripped when they heard him speak 
Until the king took the head of this Jesus freak

(repeat chorus 2x)

People say I'm strange, does it make me a stranger
That my best friend was born in a manger
People say I'm strange, does it make me a stranger
That my best friend was born in a manger

(repeat chorus 2x)

What will people think
[What will people think]
What will people do
[What will people do]
I don't really care
[What else can I say]
There ain't no disguising the truth
[Jesus is the way]

dc Talk - In The Light Lyrics

From the album Jesus Freak

I keep trying to find a life
On my own, apart from You
I am the king of excuses
I've got one for every selfish thing I do 

What's going on inside of me?
I despise my own behavior
This only serves to confirm my suspicions
That I'm still a man in need of a Savior 

(chorus)
I wanna be in the Light
As You are in the Light
I wanna shine like the stars in the heavens
Oh, Lord be my Light and be my salvation
Cause all I want is to be in the Light
All I want is to be in the Light 

The disease of self runs through my blood
It's a cancer fatal to my soul
Every attempt on my behalf has failed
To bring this sickness under control 

Tell me, what's going on inside of me?
I despise my own behavior
This only serves to confirm my suspicions
That I'm still a man in need of a Savior 

(repeat chorus) 

Honesty becomes me
[There's nothing left to lose]
The secrets that did run me
[In Your presence are defused]
Pride has no position
[And riches have no worth]
The fame that once did cover me
[Has been sentenced to this Earth]
Has been sentenced to this Earth 

Tell me, what's going on inside of me?
I despise my own behavior
This only serves to confirm my suspicions
That I'm still a man in need of a Savior 

(repeat chorus 2x) 

[There's no other place that I want to be]
[No other place that I can see]
[A place to be that's just right]
[Someday I'm gonna be in the Light]
[You are in the Light]
[That's where I need to be]
[That's right where I need to be]

dc Talk - Colored People Lyrics

From the album Jesus Freak

[1, 1, 1, 1... 2, 2, 2, 2... 3, 3, 3, 3... 4, 4, 4, 4] 

Pardon me, your epidermis is showing, sir
I couldn't help but note your shade of melanin
I tip my hat to the colorful arrangement
Cause I see the beauty in the tones of our skin 


We've gotta come together
And thank the Maker of us all 

(chorus)
We're colored people, and we live in a tainted place
We're colored people, and they call us the human race
We've got a history so full of mistakes
And we are colored people who depend on a Holy Grace 

[1, 1, 1, 1... 2, 2, 2, 2... 3, 3, 3, 3... 4, 4, 4, 4] 

A piece of canvas is only the beginning for
It takes on character with every loving stroke
This thing of beauty is the passion of an Artist's heart
By God's design, we are a skin kaleidoscope 

We've gotta come together,
Aren't we all human after all? 

(repeat chorus) 

Ignorance has wronged some races
And vengeance is the Lord's
If we aspire to share this space
Repentance is the cure 

[1, 1, 1, 1... 2, 2, 2, 2... 3, 3, 3, 3... 4, 4, 4, 4] 

Well, just a day in the shoes of a color blind man
Should make it easy for you to see
That these diverse tones do more than cover our bones
As a part of our anatomy 

(repeat chorus) 

We're colored people, and they call us the human race
[Oh, colored people]
We're colored people, and we all gotta share this space
[Yeah we've got to come together somehow]
We're colored people, and we live in a tainted world
[Red and yellow, black and white]
We're colored people, every man, woman, boy, and girl
[Colored people, colored people, colored people, colored people, yeah]

dc Talk - Consume Me Lyrics

From the album Supernatural

Lovely traces
I can sense You in everything
The way that You move me
Takes me far away
I seek no escape
I'm dreaming through Your eyes
I am wandering through Your mind
I'm overtaken
By the way that You deliver me
I'm transcended
There's no place I'd rather be
Than here in heaven
Without You I'm incomplete
It's hopeless

Chorus:
You consume me, You consume me
Like a burning flame running through my veins
You consume me moving through me
Anytime anyplace You invade my space
You consume me, You consume me

Wholly devoted
I immerse myself in You
Baptize me in Your love
'Cause drowning in the thought of You
Floods my soul
I'm taken by the things You do
God You know
It doesn't matter what I lose
I'm Yours

Chorus

I am in Your hands
Under Your command
Like a puppet on a string
I am willing to
Put my faith in You
So before the world I sing...

Chorus

There's no other way I can fly
It's You and I, You and I
