Our Emmanuel (Marc Coderre)

A voice cries out in the wilderness
Prepare a highway for the Lord
He’s coming: Our Emmanuel
He comes to set the captive free
And bring the good news to the poor
He’s coming: Our Emmanuel

Unto us a child now is given
And through him we shall be forgiven

O wisdom, holy word of God
O flower of Jesse’s branch
O ancient Lord of Israel
O key of David, radiant dawn
Eternal Light, king of all the nations
O Emmanuel

Unto us a child now is given
And through him we shall be forgiven
For to ransom captive Israel
He is coming: Our Emmanuel

To break the darkness of the night
And heal us with his radiant light
He’s coming: Our Emmanuel
O come to Bethlehem and see
The child who who comes to set you free
He’s coming (He’s ‘God With Us’)
Our Emmanuel

Unto us a child now is given
And through him we shall be forgiven
For to ransom captive Israel
He is coming: Our Emmanuel
Our Emmanuel
Our Emmanuel
He’s ‘God With Us’
Our Emmanuel

The Magnificat (John Michael Talbot)

My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord
And my spirit exalts in God my Savior
For He has looked with mercy on my lowliness
And my name will be forever exalted
For the mighty God has done great things for me
An His mercy will reach from age to age

And holy, holy, holy is His name

He has mercy in every generation
He has revealed His power and His glory
He has cast down the mighty in their arrogance
And has lifted up the meek and the lowly
He has come to help His servant Israel
He remembered His promise to our fathers

And holy, holy, holy is His name
And holy, holy, holy is His name

All Who Are Thirsty (Brenton Brown, Glenn Robertson)
(“I Lift Up My Soul” refrain by Tim Manion)

All who are thirsty
All who are weak
Come to the fountain
Dip your heart in the streams of life
Let the pain and the sorrow
Be washed away
On the waves of his mercy
As deep cries out to deep

We sing
Come, Lord Jesus, come
Come, Lord Jesus, come
Come, Lord Jesus, come
Come, Lord Jesus, come

To all who are thirsty
All who are weak
Come to the fountain
Dip your heart in the streams of life
Let the pain and the sorrow
Be washed away
On the waves of his mercy
As deep cries out to deep

We sing
Come, Lord Jesus, come
Come, Lord Jesus, come
Come, Lord Jesus, come
Come, Lord Jesus, come
We sing
Holy Spirit come
Holy Spirit come
Holy Spirit come
Holy Spirit come

As deep cries out to deep
As deep cries out to deep
As deep cries out to deep
As deep cries out to deep

We sing
Come, Lord Jesus, come
(To you, O Lord, I lift up my soul)
Come, Lord Jesus, come
(O my God)
Come, Lord Jesus, come
(To you, O Lord, I lift up my soul)
Come, Lord Jesus, come
(O my God)
Come, Lord Jesus, come

Do You Hear My Heart Cry (Marina Coderre, Marc Coderre)

Do you hear my heart cry
Can’t you hear me at all
I cry to you, I cry for you
Why can’t you hear my call
Don’t you understand
Why can’t you understand

Whenever we’re apart
Do you hear my heart cry
Do you hear me at night when I pray
I reach out for you
But do you catch me when I fall

Do you hear my heart cry
Can’t you hear me at all
I cry to you, I cry for you
Why can’t you hear my call
Don’t you understand
Why can’t you understand

Oh you are everything in life to me
Are you ever thinking of me
I offer my love, my life
But you leave me to fend for myself

Do you hear my heart cry
Can’t you hear me at all
I cry to you, I cry for you
Why can’t you hear my call
Don’t you understand
Why can’t you understand

You’ve left me in the dark
Wondering what I did wrong
Do hear my heart’s song
Oh please answer my call

My heart and my soul cry out for you
Don’t you feel my love for you
You leave me in such silence
And always at my heart’s expense

Do you hear my heart cry
Can’t you hear me at all
I cry to you, I cry for you
Why can’t you hear my call
Don’t you understand
Why can’t you understand

Here I Am Lord (Dan Schutte)

I, the Lord of sea and sky
I have heard my people cry
All who dwell in dark and sin
My hand will save
I, who made the stars of night
I will make their darkness bright
Who will bear my light to them
Whom shall I send

Here I am, Lord. Is it I, Lord
I have heard you calling in the night
I will go, Lord, if you lead me
I will hold your people in my heart

I, the Lord of snow and rain
I have borne my people’s pain
I have wept for love of them
They turn away
I will break their hearts of stone
Give them hearts for love alone
I will speak my word to them
Whom shall I send

Here I am, Lord. Is it I, Lord
I have heard you calling in the night
I will go, Lord, if you lead me
I will hold your people in my heart

I, the Lord of wind and flame
I will tend the poor and lame
I will set a feast for them
My hand will save
Finest bread I will provide
Till their hearts be satisfied
I will give my life to them
Whom shall I send

Here I am, Lord. Is it I, Lord
I have heard you calling in the night
I will go, Lord, if you lead me
I will hold your people in my heart

Be Not Afraid (Bob Dufford),
You Are Mine (David Haas)

You shall cross the barren desert
But you shall not die of thirst
You shall wander far in safety
Though you do not know the way
You shall speak your words in foreign lands
And all will understand
You shall see the face of God and live

Be not afraid
I go before you always
Come follow me
And I will give you rest

I will come to you in the silence
I will lift you from all your fear
You will hear my voice
I claim you as my choice
Be still and know I am here

I am the Word that leads all to freedom
I am the peace the world cannot give
I will call you name
Embracing all your pain
Stand up, now walk, and live

Do not be afraid, I am with you
I have called you each by name
Come and follow me
I will bring you home
I love you and you are mine

Blessed are your poor
For the kingdom shall be theirs
Blest are you that weep and mourn
For one day you shall laugh
And if wicked tongues insult and hate you
All because of me
Blessed, blessed are you

Be not afraid
(Do not be afraid, I am with you)
I go before you always
(I have called you each by name)
Come follow me
(Come and follow me, I will bring you home)
And I will give you rest
(I love you and you are mine)

Be not afraid
(Do not be afraid, I am with you)
I go before you always
(I have called you each by name)
Come follow me
(Come and follow me, I will bring you home)
And I will give you rest
(I love you and you are mine)

May The Lord Bless You (Terry Talbot)

In My Soul (Marc Coderre)

You are in my soul

You are all that I need
You make me whole
You’re the air that I breathe
(I need you)
You are in my soul

I cannot live without your love
You are everything to me
You are all I need
You are the light that shines inside my soul

You complete me

All that I have I would give to you
You are everything to me
You are all I need
You are the light that shines inside my soul
(You’re the light)

You complete me
You make me whole
You’re the air that I breathe
(I need you)
You are in my soul

You are all that I need
You make me whole
You’re the air that I breathe
(I need you)
You are in my soul
Oh, you are in my soul

A safe harbour in the storm
Is what you give to me
A burning candle in the night
(Burn candle light)
You shine your light for me
A flowing river through deserts sands
You give new life to me
The brightest star in the sky
(Bright star in the night)
You shine your light for me

You are everything to me
You are all I need
(You shine your light for me)
You are the light that shines inside my soul

Forever (Semper Fidelis) (Marc Coderre)

That summer day in June
We gathered as one
To sanctify our love
Forever as one

Semper fidelis, I’m yours forever
You’ll always be the only one
Forever and ever
You’ll always be the only one

Before you came into my life
I wasn’t truly alive
You liberated my heart
And gave me new life

Semper fidelis, I’m yours forever
You’ll always be the only one
Forever and ever
You’ll always be the only one

You can’t know love ’til you see it
You can’t show love ’til you feel it
I believe in you, the love in you
I see it, feel it, live and breathe it

And though the darkness may fall
And all turn to dust
I’m with you through it all
Believe in us

Semper fidelis, I’m yours forever
You’ll always be the only one
Forever and ever
You’ll always be the only one
Semper fidelis, I’m yours forever
You’ll always be the only one
Forever and ever
You’ll always be the only one
(One)
The only one
The only one
The only one

Anniversary (Marc Coderre)

My life was a duet
Sung in the key of you and me
Now it’s just a sad solo
An ode to what used to be
You were my key to the house of love
But now the locks are changed
And here I am on the outside looking in

I am a man without his lover
I am a ring without a finger
I am one without his other
I am a song without his singer
You were my ticket to the stage of love
But now the curtain’s falling down
And here I am left standing in the wings

I’m just sitting on the grass
Talking to your stone
Just another day to remind me
That I’m all alone
You should be here in my arms
And not in the earth
‘Happy Anniversary’
…for what it’s worth

You were my ticket to the stage of love
But now the play has been called off
And I never got to see the final act

Be Free (Marc Coderre)

Rest, my angel, rest you now
Your journey’s come to its end
Go forth from here
Into the arms of the Lord
Rest you now, my love

Be free
Just let go and be free
Suffer no more and be free
Be at peace and be free
I want you to be free

I knew you for most my life
You were my first true love
But suddenly you were taken from me
Who’s going to love me now

Be free
Just let go and be free
Suffer no more and be free
Be at peace and be free
I want you to be free

Now everything that we were
Is reduced to memories
For the world, life moves on
But not for me
And they say you’re in a better place
Well that may be true
But for me the world’s a lonely place
Since I lost you

Bless you, my love, bless you now
You cared for me right to the end
May God’s love and grace
Always shine upon you
Don’t be afraid to live again

Be free
Just let go and be free
Suffer no more and be free
Be at peace and be free
I want you to be free

Be free
Just let go and be free
Suffer no more and be free
Be at peace and be free
I want you to be free

You Raise Me Up (Rolf Lovland, Brendan Graham)

When I am down and, oh my soul, so weary
When troubles come and my heart burdened be
Then I am still and wait here in the silence
Until you come and sit awhile with me

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas
And I am strong when I am on your shoulders
You raise me up to more than I can be

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas
And I am strong when I am on your shoulders
You raise me up to more than I can be

There is no life, no life without its hunger
Each restless heart beats so imperfectly
But when you come and I am filled with wonder
Sometimes I think I glimpse eternity

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas
And I am strong when I am on your shoulders
You raise me up to more than I can be

Living Without You (Marc Coderre)

You, you are the light
That broke the darkness of my heart
You took me away from my solitude
Showed me the meaning of love

Loved me more than I deserved
Forgave me all the times I was wrong
Helped me to see the good in me
Believed in me when I could not myself

Now that I’m living without you
Know that I’ll never forget you
Even though we are now apart
My love for you will never end
It will live on in my heart
Till the day we meet again

You were there to share all the firsts
Stuck with me when times were tough
You cheered me up and you cheered me on
I could never thank you enough

Now that I’m living without you
Know that I’ll never forget you
Even though we are now apart
My love for you will never end
It will live on in my heart
Till the day we meet again

I want to thank you for sharing your life
And I’m sorry that I took you for granted
And I miss you with every beat of my heart

Now that I’m living without you
Know that I’ll never forget you
Even though we are now apart
My love for you will never end
It will live on in my heart
Till the day we meet again

Now that I’m living without you
Know that I’ll never forget you
Even though we are now apart
My love for you will never end
It will live on in my heart
Till the day we meet again

New Day (Marc Coderre)

Nobody said life is easy
But you’re looking at things all wrong
The night is always darkest
Right before the dawn
It’s a new day
It’s a new day

What do you gain from worrying
Over things that are in the past
Try to find the good in every day
Make the special moments last
It’s a new day
It’s a new day

So break free from yesterday
Don’t let fear stand in your way
It’s a new day
It’s a new day

Everyone has their bad days
Everyone makes mistakes
It’s not the end of the world
So just give yourself a break
It’s a new day
It’s a new day

So break free from yesterday
Face the future come what may
It’s a new day
It’s a new day

So break free from yesterday
See the world a whole new way

It’s a new day
It’s a new day

So break free from yesterday
Don’t let fear stand in your way
It’s a new day
It’s a new day

So break free from yesterday
Face the future come what may
It’s a new day

So break free from yesterday
See the world a whole new way
It’s a new day
It’s a new day
It’s a new day
