Friday

Hey, let me tell you ‘bout the Friday  I had
It really started last night, then went terribly bad
Dinner with friends, a feast of food and some drink
Then we walked to the hills ‘cause I needed to think

I withdrew and knelt down, hoped my friends would pray too
But they kept falling asleep; they didn’t know what I knew
That I came to be sacrificed, God’s only Son
Seeking My Father, I said, “May Your will be done.”

Then the crowd busted in, the priests and armed guards
A kiss of betrayal that accompanied swords
Seized and arrested, a biased hearing and trial
The crows of a rooster, pain of Peter’s denial

Mocked and beaten by guards, false testimonies again
“Are you the Messiah?” I answered, “I am.”
Then led before Romans, found undeserving of death
“Are you the king of the Jews?” I replied simply, “Yes.”

The mob was unruly and easily persuaded
To shout, “Crucify him!” The priests were elated
A flogging so brutal, a crown of thorns on My head
Stripped, mocked, and spit upon, then away I was led

To the Place of the Skull, to be crucified
Nailed to a cross, My arms spread out wide
The mocking continued and insults were hurled
As I gave up My spirit and died for the world

Then wrapped up in linen and laid in a tomb
But I don’t plan on staying; I’ll be out of here soon
Watch for Me in three days; I’ll live and I’ll rise
Friday is finished; Sunday’s a surprise!

Radiate!

Verse 1:
A man named Moses
Was chosen to lead
Though life started rocky
When left in the reeds

From river to desert
The LORD met with him
Speaking directly
As a man speaks with his friend

Verse 2:
The LORD said to Moses
Get ready and come
Meet Me on the mountain
There’s work to be done

I’ll do the writing
Bring tablets of stone
But when Moses came down
God’s radiance shown

Verse 3:
The people were fearful
Never seen this before
A face that was radiant
From the Presence of the LORD

A human reflecting
God’s glorious light
Evidence of His Presence
Radiant and bright

Chorus:
Transform me, Father
So others may see
The glory of Your Spirit
Reflected in me

Ever-increasing
The likeness of You
My heart’s deepest desire
To radiate You

Bridge:
Radiate You, radiate You
Radiate, radiate, radiate You
Radiate You, radiate You
Radiate, radiate, radiate You

Verse 4:
Evidence I’ve been with You
Evidence I’ve been changed
Evidence of Your Spirit
Not working in vain

Evidence that my light
Can shine brighter for You
Reflecting the glory
Of a radiant You

CHORUS

My Name Is Wisdom

My name is Wisdom
I have been with Him
Long before the world began
Before the oceans
Before the mountains
And boundaries set by His command

Blessed is the one
Who listens to me
Watching and waiting at my door
In me, you’ll find life
And favor from the LORD
Now, who could ask for more?

Chorus:
Seek me
I am calling out to you
Seek me
And know my words are true
Seek me
I have worthy things to say

Seek me
For nothing can compare
Seek me
There’s right and justice here
Seek me, seek me, seek me
And find me today

Blessed is the one
Who listens to me
Watching and waiting at my door
In me, you’ll find life
And favor from the LORD
Now, who could ask for more?

Chorus:
Seek me
I am calling out to you
Seek me
And know my words are true
Seek me
I have worthy things to say

Seek me
For nothing can compare
Seek me
There’s right and justice here
Seek me, seek me, seek me
And find me today

My name is Wisdom
I have been with Him
Long before the world began

The Rooster Crowed

Never thought
Never thought
I would be the one
Falling down
Caught in sin
Shamed by everyone
A disappointment
To One and all

Not losing faith
But I lost my way
My strength to stand
Seemed sapped away
Gave way to weakness
Gave in to fear
Let go of all
That I’d held so dear

And then, the rooster crowed!
And Jesus turned
And I remembered
His every word
He looked straight at me
Heart to broken heart
Could He use me now?
Had I gone too far?

Haunted by when the rooster crowed!
And Jesus turned
Then I remembered
His every word
He looked straight at me
Heart to broken heart
Could He use me now?
Had I gone too far?

Then He shared His plan with me
He revealed it graciously

He said, Feed My sheep
Your failure’s not the end
Feed My sheep
It’s you, I want to send
Feed My sheep
Show your love for Me
As I called you from the start
Come, follow Me!

He said, Feed My sheep
Your failure’s not the end
Feed My sheep
It’s you, I want to send
Feed My sheep
Show your love for Me
As I called you from the start
Come, follow Me!

Leave your failures in my hands
And come, follow Me!

Satisfied

Father God, don’t look at me
‘Cause deep inside You just might see
Discontentment, jealousy
Doubt and insufficiency

Help me grow, walk in Your Way
Reflect more of Your Son each day
Change me, mold me through the fire
Lord, this is my heart’s desire…to be

Chorus:
Satisfied
Satisfied anew
I, I, I, I want, I want
To be satisfied in You

Satisfied
Satisfied anew
I, I, I, I want, I want
To be satisfied in You

Satisfied ‘cause You are with me
Satisfied ‘cause You are here
Satisfied, You know the answer
Satisfied, You conquer every fear

Satisified, no need to worry
Satisfied, no need to doubt
Satisfied that when I stumble
Satisfied You’ll help me out

Chorus:
Satisfied
Satisfied anew
I, I, I, I want, I want
To be satisfied in You

Satisfied
Satisfied anew
I, I, I, I want, I want
To be satisfied in You

Satisfied, so stop comparing
Satisfied, no jealousy
Satisfied to have Your blessing
Satisfied on bended knee

Satisfied, You have provided
Satisfied, my thanks I give
Satisfied, You know the ending
Satisfied, with You I’ll live

Chorus:
Satisfied
Satisfied anew
I, I, I, I want, I want
To be satisfied in You

Satisfied
Satisfied anew
I, I, I, I want, I want
To be satisfied in You

Boundaries

Verse 1:
Looking for love
But loving God first
Not believing the lies
That alone is the worst
‘Sides I’m not alone
My God is with me
He’s at my side
And He’s guiding me, saying…

Verse 2:
Here are My boundaries
You need to stay strong
Stand firm in your values
Don’t surrender to wrong
You will be tempted
To give up and give in
But, trust in Me always
Find My strength deep within and say…

Chorus:
That’s too far
That’s too much
Not that kiss
Not that touch
Striving to live
A life that is pure
She’s waiting for him
And he’s waiting for her

Verse 3:
A friendship that’s growing
A love that’s begun
A hope that’s exciting
That you’ve found ‘the one’
A life without pressure
A love without fear
Of losing that one
When you say loud and clear…

Chorus:
That’s too far
That’s too much
Not that kiss
Not that touch
Striving to live
A life that is pure
She’s waiting for him
And he’s waiting for her

Chorus:
Hey, that’s too far
Whoa, that’s too much
No no, not that kiss
Stop, not that touch
Striving to live
A life that is pure
She’s waiting for him
And he’s waiting for her

She’s waiting for him
And he’s waiting for her
