Track Name: Praise the One Who Breaks the Darkness
Praise the one who breaks the darkness
with a liberating light.
Praise the one who frees the prisoners,
turning blindness into sight.
Praise the one who preached the Gospel,
healing every dread disease,
calming storms and feeding thousands
with the very bread of peace.

Praise the one who blessed the children
with a strong yet gentle word.
Praise the one who drove out demons
with a piercing two-edged sword.
Praise the one who brings cool water
to the desert's burning sand.
From this well comes living water,
quenching thirst in every land.

Praise the one true love incarnate:
Christ who suffered in our place.
Jesus died and rose for many
that we may know God by grace.
Let us sing for joy and gladness,
seeing what our God has done.
Praise the one redeeming glory,
praise the One who makes us one.
Track Name: A Hymn
O God of earth and altar,
bow down and hear our cry,
our earthly rulers falter,
our people drift and die;
the walls of gold entomb us,
the swords of scorn divide,
take not thy thunder from us,
but take away our pride.

From all that terror teaches,
from lies of tongue and pen,
from all the easy speeches
that comfort cruel men,
from sale and profanation
of honor, and the sword,
from sleep and from damnation,
deliver us, good Lord!

Tie in a living tether
the prince and priest and thrall,
bind all our lives together,
smite us and save us all;
in ire and exultation
aflame with faith, and free,
lift up a living nation,
a single sword to thee.
Track Name: Church on Earth, Arise
Church on earth, arise,
Raise your weary eyes,
See your Lord in vict’ry reigning.
By his hand he’s still sustaining
All the earth below
As you reap and sow.

Hear the Savior say,
“Love, do not delay.
Go; the harvest is abounding!”
Hear his gracious call, resounding:
“Though the workers few,
There is work to do.”

Guide us on our way
In these latter days
Through the triumph and the trial.
Make our daily work worthwhile.
Give us eyes to see
Dawning victory.

Soon our rest will come.
All that we have done
Will last in the heav’nly glory.
’Til then, tell this gospel story:
Christ, who died for you,
Will make all things new.
Track Name: Step by Step
Step by step, Lord, lead me onward,
Walking barefoot with my Guide,
Listening for Thy softest whisper,
Saviour, for me crucified.

Lead me on, though flint and brier
Wound our feet at every stride;
Tireless till we find Thy lost one,
Saviour, for him crucified.
