Track Name: Watchmen
Come! Come!
Weʼre climbing up the slopes of Zion No more tears no more crying
Come! Come!
Weʼre comingʼ back with shouts of joy Comingʼ back shouting for joy
God has blessed us Heaven smiled Weʼre bringing with us
Grain new wine and Oil

Watchmen on the hills shout out “Open wide the gates”
For the Lord has called us back Itʼs time to celebrate
A time to build and plant
And gather in the fruit
Join your hands and dance
To the sound of strings and flute

Restrain your voice from weeping
And your eyes from their tears
Jesus our deliverer Has redeemed the broken years
So sing with all thatʼs in you Shout to all the earth
“O Lord save your people And gather them to yourself!”

Vous les sentinelles.. criez! “Le Seigneur est la”
Il est temps de célébrer Dʼacceuillir le Roi
Réjouissons-nous Fortifions nos bras
Au rhythme des tambours Élevons nos voix

Track Name: Oil
Back in the days gone by the dream was alive
For one people across the land
At great sacrifice the rail came to life
Compelling the country to stand
Today there’s a train in the station
With the key to the nation
But it’s engine is rusted and seized
We cry for release of the oil of peace
On those who will believe

Let the oil pour
Pour down on me
Let the oil pour
Down down down down down on me

So let’s roll out that train and bind up the pain
That divides every heart and home
We cry for the release of the oil of peace
To reconcile us to God
In the days of old the prophets were told
To go be a force for change
They said how can we go
Unless your spirit will flow
Flow through and pour down like rain

Track Name: Stand
Lookin’ for the free road
Freedom from the wrong I do
My heart just keeps on being pulled
Then I hear a voice that says to...

Live in His mighty pow’r
When the day of evil comes
Put on the armour now Stand!

Shakin’ off the dust again
Rising up to sit enthroned
My heart is free to be unchained
I am not a captive I can...

Wake awake
I’m clothed in strength

Track Name: Warriors
Warriors, paint your faces
Warriors, sound the drums
Warriors, count your quiver
Warriors, the time has come

We’ve sat by our mouths were shut
Closed our eyes and given up
The Great One sounds the battle cry
The hour is now the Son is high

Come Holy Fire
Drench the nation
With your cleansing tide
Roll like a river over me Burn up the chaff
Flood the desert
With your healing balm
O let your kingdom come

Warriors, men of peace
When we speak, we do war

Track Name: Somethin's Rattlin'
Somethin’s rattlin’
Somethin’s shakin’
Somethin’ new is goin’ down
Spirit’s movin’
Jesus is doin’
Kingdom work in this town

As we walk through the valley
Dry bones on every side
Lord breathe out your spirit
And make these bones alive

Now is the day of salvation
The day for life in His name
And this generation
Never gonna be the same

Breathe,breathe, breathe Spirit breathe

“You will know I’m the Lord
When I make these dry bones live
And I fill you with my spirit
That only I can give.”

Track Name: Down to the River
When my heart is troubled
When my spirit gives way
When the burden is heavy
So heavy that I cannot pray

I go down to the river
Where the current is strong
And the mercy is flowing freely
In the river I belong

When the mountain top’s distant
And the way through the forest is blurred
the path is steep and winding
And I desperately need reassurance

I will drink of your river of delights
For you are the fountain of life
In your light I can see light
Take me down to your river tonight

Track Name: Mercy of God
The riverbank reveals it’s silt
As the tide of life rolls out at will
The tidal bore rolls up the shore
The mercy of God is new once more

Mercy of God, wash over me
My heart is stained, O please forgive
And all my desires, all of my pride
Cleanse with your river
Flood with your tide.

Ever changing ebb and flow
The heights of joy the depths of sorrow
Today, O God my anchor’s set
Your faithful love I’ll not forget

I will not withhold my praise
My heart be soft all my days
My refuge God, will be in you
Trusting you to lead me through

Track Name: Courts of the King
There is love, there is peace
There is joy that will not cease
In the courts of the King
That is where I find release
I will dance, I will sing Make my life an offering
In the courts of the King
That is where I will bring My gift of love

Singing, I love you Lord In your presence
I feel adored
Yes your love
Wraps round me Lord In your presence
I can hear your word
Your gift of Love

In your arms I can hear
Your pounding heart, draw me near
To know your thoughts to feel your pain
In your arms I will not fear
I will walk, I will speak
Show your truth that men might seek
For the courts of the King
That is where I will bring
My gift of love

Track Name: Through the Curtain
I will walk through the curtain
That you tore in your grief
I will come to the table
I will sit with you and I will eat

I will live in your presence
I will walk in your ways
I will celebrate all your goodness
I will always seek your face

For you love me
With a love that won’t let go
And a thousand times I know You’ve told me so
Yes you love me
with a love that won’t let go
And a thousand times I know You’ve told me so

You say, “I love you” You say, “I love you”
You say, “I love you You are my child”
