Lay it all down and make it right
Lay it all down and fight the fight
Lay it all down be a sacrifice
Lay it all down for the Holy Life

Track Name: Rain Upon Your Desert
RAIN UPON YOUR DESERT
(The Strangers)

I WILL RAIN UPON YOUR DESERT,
I WILL CALM YOUR STORMY SEA
I WILL BLESS YOU BEYOND MEASURE,
IF YOU’LL ONLY TRUST IN ME

I WILL TAKE YOU BY THE HAND,
AND MAKE YOU UNDERSTAND
THE MYSTERIES OF LIFE ARE ALL IN MY COMMAND

YOUR WELL’S RUN DRY AND YOUR THIRST IS STRONG;
YOU ARE LOOKING FOR THE WATER THAT WILL GIVE YOU LIFE

ALL OF THE WHILE GOD HAS BEEN CALLING YOU,
ALL OF THE WHILE GOD HAS BEEN SHOWING YOU THE WAY
ALL OF THE WHILE, ALL OF THE WHILE

IT’S BY FAITH THAT WE RECEIVE
HE’S THE LIVING WATER, SENT FOR YOU AND ME

ALL OF THE WHILE, GOD HAS BEEN CALLING YOU
ALL OF THE WHILE, GOD HAS BEEN SHOWING YOU THE WAY
ALL OF THE WHILE, ALL OF THE WHILE

TRUST IN ME; YOU’VE GOT TO TRUST IN ME
Track Name: Rare Earth
RARE EARTH


TAKE A HAND FULL OF CLAY
AND A BREATH FROM GOD
FILL THEM WITH EMOTION
SO THAT THEY CAN KNOW LOVE
GIVE THEM REASON SO THEY’LL WONDER WHY
AND GIVE THEM JESUS
TO GET TO HEAVEN WHEN THEY DIE


RARE EARTH
WE’RE NOT LIKE NOTHING HE’S EVER MADE BEFORE
RARE EARTH
WHEN HE MADE US HE BROKE THE MOLD
HE GAVE TO ME A HEART OF FLESH’
AND HE TOOK AWAY MY STONE

IF YOU HAVEN’T DIED AND ROSE IN HIM
IF YOU HAVEN’T LET JESUS TAKE ON ALL YOUR SIN
I SUGGEST TO YOU THAT YOU HAVEN’T BEEN BORN AGAIN
AND YOUR CLAY POT IS GROWING OLD AND THIN

Bridge:
If you trust in man he’ll lead you down the path of evolution
If you trust in God he’ll lead you to the spiritual solution

Chorus:

Tag

He can do it for you…
You’ve got to ask him to

Track Name: To A Place
To a place

Luganda Chant:
Togende fenna Togende (Let’s go all of us Let’s go)
Togende Fenna Togende (Let’s go all of us Let’s go)

I know my days are numbered,
and one day they’ll be counted
and I know just where I’m going x2


To a place, where there’ll be no more dying;
to a place, where there’ll be no more tears
I can’t wait to see Jesus face to face,
where the light comes from His face


No eye has ever seen, no mind has comprehended
the glory God has waiting there for me X2
