Open up the window to the darkness Step into the wonder of your blindness You will lose yourself You will find yourself If you want to know where your heart is If you dare to know, then come on in You will lose your soul You will find it Your will lose control Never mind it If you want to know If you want to know You must lose your soul You must let it go Admit yourself, your heart is black No hiding now, no turning back You're better off, trust me, you're truer here It's dangerous and cold, so be aware If you want to know If you want to know You must lose your soul You must let it go Come and save your life Come and face your strife Do you want to know? Do you want to know?

I watched Satan fall from heaven like a flash of lightning See, I have given you authority to tread on snakes and scorpions And over all the power of the enemy And nothing, nothing will hurt you Nevertheless, do not rejoice in this That the spirits submit to you But rejoice that your names are written in heaven I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth 'Cause you have hidden these things from the wise and the intelligent And have revealed them to infants Yes, Father, for such was your gracious will All things have been handed over to me by my Father And no one knows who the Son is, except the Father Or who the Father is, except the Son And anyone to whom the Son chooses to reveal him Blessed Are the eyes that see what you see For I tell you that many prophets and kings Desired to see what you see, but did not see it And to hear what you hear, but did not hear it

My Fortress 04:41
There I am in Jericho I sit behind the barricade In the distance I have made When I see you coming close I feel you threatening my world My defenses start to fall Then you tear down my fortress, my fortress You tear down my fortress, my fortress Here I thought you were my friend Then you come charging at my door I can hide from you no more Well, I guess this is the end But then I see it on your face We can love no other way So you tear down my fortress, my fortress You tear down my fortress, my fortress You tear down, you tear down You tear down my fortress, my fortress My fortress...

Give me the questions to my life So tired of answers and being right I don't know what it's like To attend other sides I defend and refuse to let go It's time to receive you into my life To relieve my soul of this lie And to love you, brother I've played this game for thirty years I've fought and conquered, but still no nearer To the love I would find If I let myself die Am I finally willing to lose? It's time to receive you into my life To relieve my soul of this lie And to love you, brother It's time to love my brother...

You say you're near That you'll come and drive away my fear But you know my thoughts You see into my deepest parts And, oh, my anxious soul Keeping me from letting go And, oh, this binding fear Won't you come deliver me from here Rejoice, let go Again I say rejoice, my soul Give in, give thanks Lift up your heart, your hands, your face For peace comes from the skies Receive it as the sun arrives And leave your chains behind It guards your heart, if frees your mind And it's far more wonderful Far more wonderful than I could know Yes, it's far more wonderful Your peace is far more wonderful than I could know Yes, it's far more wonderful Far more wonderful than I could know Yes, it's far more wonderful Your peace is far more wonderful, far more wonderful Be not afraid...

Christ, as a light illumine and guide me Christ, as a shield overshadow me Christ under me, Christ over me Christ beside me, on my left and on my right Be in the heart of each to whom I speak And be in the mouth of each who speaks to me This day be within me This day be without me Lowly and meek, yet all powerful Christ, as a light illumine and guide me Christ, as a shield overshadow me Christ under me, Christ over me Christ behind me, Christ before me Christ within me, Christ without me...

Sanctus 03:22
Holy, holy, holy Lord God of power and might Heaven and earth are full of your glory Hosanna in the highest Blessed it he who comes in the name Comes in the name of the Lord Heaven and earth are full of your glory Hosanna in the highest Hosanna in the highest
