Track Name: LISTEN
(verse 1)
He’s calling to you, in the quiet of the night
She already knows you. There is no need to hide
It lives within you, it's where your soul resides
You can’t seek what's been found
Listen to the sound when your heart speaks.

(Chorus)
Listen to the heart space, listen to what it's been saying
Listen it knows the way, listen... listen to God speak

Listen, listen, listen, listen


(verse2)
We are worthy or greatness for it has been foreseen.
It matters not your religion - Gender, colour, nor creed.
Listen and break through, you can hear what it's telling you.
When all is war around, listen to the sound when your heart speaks.

(Chorus)

(Breakdown)
P1(Main)
Never can we get saved, silencing this heart of grace.
Knowing you are the way.
Listen... listen to God speak.
P2(Soprano)
Never can we get saved, we know you are the way
P3(Alto)
Never can we get saved (OO), knowing you are the way (OO)
P4(Tenor)
Never can we get SAVED!
We know you are the WAY!

LISTEN TO GOD SPEAL!

I don't care what your going through...

(chorus)
Be still and know that I am God.
Be still and know that I am God.

Track Name: Hopeless Arms
(verse 1)
Life is hopeless when no faith is there.
Faith is where you will find me.
Fallen star, crying grandmother, ailing boy, open your hopeless arms.
Those hopeless arms aren't hopeless when I am here.
In your arms, in your hearts, in your souls I will be forever.

(BGVs - OOO)

(verse 2)
When you’re in your mind thinking on trying times believing you're broken, your fractured, defeated - you’re defeated not.
There’s a place, a secret place, away from fear where strength is.
I will be there with open arms. My healing arms will take you in. 

(BGVs - In your arms, in your hearts, in your souls I will be.
In your arms, in your hearts, in your souls I will be forever.)

(chorus)
(Hopeless arms) dry your tears.
(Hopeless arms) let go of your fear.
(Hopeless arms) I am here.
(Hopeless arms) you will be free, just come to me.
(x2)

(outro)
Mother/Father one of creation we thank you for the blessings we've taken. 
All hopelessness you have shaken from us, now we are ever embracing in your arms.
Track Name: Don't Give Up
(verse 1)
Theres doubt growing in your core, and fear building ‘round your heart space.
With all of the noise filling up your mind, theres no need to be afraid.
You might worry when times are hard, shut down when you see no way out.
Remember there’s always someone there listening when you pray.

(chorus 1)
Don’t give up, it will be alright.
Keep your faith. You’ll make it through the night ’til the day.

(verse 2)
Dry your tears now, this is not the end (no, no, NO)
Even you know there is much to do in you yet.
The light inside you is brighter than you know, there’s no need to be afraid.
Love will shelter you from the storm. Will be your rock when you have no strength left.
The days ahead, some aren’t gonna be easy (NO)
But God’s listening when you pray.

(chorus 1)
Don’t give up, it will be alright.
Keep your faith. You’ll make it through the night ’til the day.
(chorus 2)
Dont give into the darkness. Trust in the One and you will be blessed, Yes!
God will hold you, and will change you. God will hold you up and won’t let you go, No!

Track Name: My Family
Caught up in the words, “there’s nothing here for you”, I felt so alone, my courage was gone.
Seed sewn on the rocks with no hope of catching - taken by the wind, devoured by sand.

I’ve walked with the folks, all given up on you - looking for love, looking for a way.
Blind leading the blind, I could not be free - my world was overwhelming.

That’s where you come in sisters and brothers, Mother/ Father God, my family.
That’s where you come in brothers and sisters. You give me hope, you give me light.
That’s where you come in.

Caught up in the words, “there’s nothing here for you!” I felt so alone. My courage was gone.
Seed sewn on the rocks with no hope of catching, taken by the wind, devoured by sand.
(I’ve been caught up in the words. I felt so alone, my courage was gone.
Here on the rocks thirsty for your love. I’ve been taken by wind, cast to the sand.)

I’ve walked with the ghosts, given up on you, looking for love, looking for a way.
blind leading the blind I could not be free, my world was overwhelming.
(Walked with the folks, given up on you now. Looking for love, looking for way. Blind leading the blind… my world was overwhelming.)

That’s where you come in sisters and brothers, Mother/ Father God, my family.
That’s where you come in brothers and sisters. You give me hope, you give me light.
That’s where you come in.

That’s where you come into my life, oh God.
I’m not alone and I never was. I find my safety in your love.
Though dark clouds may come, I know you are there - my family.
