Track Name: Forest Fires
Oh I ran from You
I swore it’d be the last time that I do
A forest fire
I slept beneath the trees for a while

And I never learn
And like a dog I spew and return
Under the wire
To choose between the world and my desire

Beautiful what have I done?
These crimson hands
What have I become?
And how can You look at me?
Not the man I was made to be
Track Name: Salt & Light
Your message will not lie dormant on our lips
We won’t allow this light to dwindle in the darkness
For this fallen world has tried time and time again
They’ve tried to cut us down but they fail in the end

As we will not cease to sing
When the darkness closes in
We will not be shaken
And through the flood I will not cease to sing

Oh raise your voices now salt of the earth
Stand firm within His truth; declare His worth
And His name be lifted high, who paid the sinners fare
The nations come alive, hearing loud and clear

Cause we will not cease to sing
When the darkness closes in
We will not be shaken
And through the flood I will not cease to sing

We will not
We will not
We will not falter
We will not
We will not
We will not founder

And just like a lighthouse
You will lead them out
Awaken us from our slumber
Not broken asunder
You’ll draw us to Yourself
And all will praise Your name
Track Name: The Prophet
I fled from you
I fled to the sea
In hopes that you
Would forget about me
But the storms would ensue
How could I run from you?

Cause Mountains quake
And melt away
Nations fall, the sun will fade
But the Lord our God remains
And storms will rage
As skies will drain
At the might of His hand
And the power in His command
As I tremble in fear

Beneath the waves
My chosen fate
And tossed to sea
To the belly of the beast
But You heard my cry
And spared my life

I called you out to that wicked city
Now deliver these words I give to you
I’ve seen graceless deeds and lack of pity
There is consequence for the things they do

The second time you would not disobey
My words blazing forth from your lips like fire
With ashes and with shame they turned from their way
To forgive was always my desire

Is it right for you to be so angry?
Yes it was I who cursed your blessed leaf
You cared not for an entire city
And you would rather die in petty grief

I rescued you from the jaws of the sea
And yet still you know nothing of mercy
Track Name: Furious Fire
Now open up my eyes
Cause I’m tired of being blind
And what is it You see in me?
I’m not who I was made to be
I never was

We won’t believe the lie
That we’ve fallen too far

For Your love oh God
Is like a furious fire
Oh come refine us
For our desire is to worship
Is to bring You praise
With all we are we lift your name

So rob me of my pride
And steal away Your bride
Purge this heart awaken me
I wanna be who I was made to be

For your love oh God
Is like a furious fire
Oh come refine us
For our desire is to worship
Is to bring you praise
With all we are we lift your name
Track Name: Fanning The Flame
When you tread through the valleys
When on paths of broken glass you walk
Through trial and snare; stuck in the mire
I’m closer than you thought

Do you know who you are?
Disfigured and marred
From fanning the flame
My child

Cause I’ve watched you fall apart
And I’ve seen every scar
And I know the pain you feel

I’ve seen you in the dark
I know what’s in your heart
And all the things you conceal

Though you’ve ran so far
I’m still by your side
Would you turn to me and find

You’re not alone
On this rock you’ll stand
Despite yourself
I am that I am

And when you walk through the fire
You will not feed the flame
When you walk through the waters
You won’t be swept away

And You reached for me
But I turned from You
The only love I ever knew

And You’re reaching still
Through my dismay
I’m losing hope
Then I hear You say

When you walk through the fire
You will not feed the flame
When you walk through the waters
You won’t be swept away
Track Name: You See Me
And she bled no more
With the slightest touch
And with faith restored
In the One who loves

So regain your sight
With spit and mud
Opened eyes
The kingdom come

You see me
You know my name
And You love me all the same
And You carried all the blame
This world you overcame

And we bleed too
With blinded eyes
We need You
To give us life

Cause I’ve lost before
All I thought I knew
All my fears
Led back to You

Cause You see me
You know my name
And You love me all the same
And You buried all my shame
This world you overcame

You see me
Track Name: Love Of Mine
You walk with me down these cold dark roads
You part the seas and bring life to lifeless souls
You carry me when my strength wears thin
And when I fall You bring me to my feet again

So take this life from me
Set my soul free
Take all I am and all I do
All for You
All for You

You’ve broken me and taught my soul to sing
You’ve washed me clean and endured my suffering

So take this life from me
Set my soul free
Take all I am and all I do
All for You
All for You

And all my chains were gone
And I could not believe such grace
And now You’re all that matters
Lord would You take your place

And be the center
Oh Divine
Be exalted
Oh love of mine
Track Name: Solid Rock
My hope is built on nothing less

Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness
I dare not trust the sweetest frame

But wholly lean on Jesus’ name

Refrain:
On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand

All other ground is sinking sand

All other ground is sinking sand

When darkness veils His lovely face

I rest on His unchanging grace

In every high and stormy gale
My anchor holds within the veil

His oath, His covenant, His blood

Support me in the whelming flood
When all around my soul gives way

He then is all my hope and stay

When He shall come with trumpet sound

Oh, may I then in Him be found
Dressed in His righteousness alone

Faultless to stand before the throne
Track Name: Forest Fires - Reprise
But you held me still
And despite myself I know You always will
And from the mire
You pulled me from the pit and from the fire

Beautiful what have I done?
These crimson hands
What have I become?
And what do You see in me?
Not the man I was made to be

Change me
Show me Your ways
Teach me the meaning of grace
