Track Name: Simon Miner - Make Us One
Verse 1
Father, we have come to worship. Hear our prayer and heed our cry.
Let us linger in Your Lordship, Son of God and God Most High.
Holy Spirit, sift and soften every heart within this place
As we meet beneath Your cross and come together by Your grace.

Verse 2
Jesus Christ, our great Redeemer, scorned by men but loved by God
Bore our sin upon Your shoulder, paid our ransom with Your blood.
Rose the Victor, death defeating, raised to sit at God’s right hand..
Now our High Priest interceding, show Your Father’s love to man.

Chorus
Hear Your people calling out.
We come to You, our Living Stone.
Build us up into Your house.
Holy Father, Spirit, Son,
Make us one as You are One.

Verse 3
Here we stand beside our brethren, gathered as the Church of Christ
Offering up our lives together as one living sacrifice.
Chosen people, royal priesthood, holy nation unto God.
Called to share Your holy feast and bring Your blessing to the world.

Chorus
Hear Your people calling out.
We come to You, our Living Stone.
Build us up into Your house.
Holy Father, Spirit, Son,
Make us one as You are One.

Chorus
Hear Your people calling out.
We come to You, our Living Stone.
Build us up into Your house.
Holy Father, Spirit, Son,
Make us one as You are One.

Track Name: Simon Miner - Take All of Me (Rosemary's Song)

Wherever you go I will walk with you.
Wherever you lay your head, I will remain.
The ones who you love, I will call family.
I will lift my voice to the God to whom you pray.

Chorus
For all your kindness, my affection,
For all your sacrifice, my hopes and dreams,
For all the love you show, for all the grace bestowed,
Take all of me. Take all of me…

Verse 2
Whatever You want, that is what I will be.
Whatever You call me to, I will obey.
It wasn’t enough that You gave You’re life for me,,
But You give the love that I look upon today.

For all your kindness, my affection,
For all your sacrifice, my hopes and dreams,
For all the love you show, for all the grace bestowed,
Take all of me. Take all of me.
Take all of me. Take all of me…

Verse 3
And when the night falls and I draw my final breath,
I will lay my weary head with you to die.
The Lord deal with me, be it ever so severe,
If I let any other thing between you and I.

Chorus
For all your kindness, my affection,
For all your sacrifice, my hopes and dreams,
For all the love you show, for all the grace bestowed,
Take all of me. Take all of me.
Take all of me. Take all of me…
Track Name: Simon Miner - Dwelling Place
Verse 1
Hide and protect me O God; keep me secure,
For You are my Lord, You are my Lord.
Order the ways of my heart, Counsel and Guide,
Even at night, lead me in light.

Chorus
My portion and my cup, my fortress and my rock,
My glory and my God for always…
You fill my heart with song, for I have found belonging;
You have become my dwelling place.

Verse 2
In the saints of the land I delight, noble and pure,
But the wicked shall mourn; their idols I scorn.
Show me the pathway of life that I might be saved,
Escaping the grave, I lift up Your Name!

Chorus
My portion and my cup, my fortress and my rock,
My glory and my God for always…
You fill my heart with song, for I have found belonging;
You have become my dwelling place.

Bridge
In Your presence is fullness of joy. At Your right hand are pleasures forever.
In Your presence is fullness of joy. At Your right hand are pleasures forever.
In Your presence is fullness of joy. At Your right hand are pleasures forever.
In Your presence is fullness of joy. At Your right hand are pleasures forever.

Chorus
My portion and my cup, my fortress and my rock,
My glory and my God for always…
You fill my heart with song, for I have found belonging;
You have become my dwelling place.
Track Name: Simon Miner - The Love You're Looking For (Sedric's Lullaby)
Verse 1
You’ll find the love you’re looking for
Within the shelter of your daddy’s arms.
Inside my heart it’s safe and warm,
And you’ll find the love you’re looking for.
If you scrape your knee or bruise your soul, if you run away from home,
Take a look over your shoulder; I will run to meet you.
I will be waiting at the door,
And you’ll find the love you’re looking for.

Verse 2
You’ll find the light your’re looking for
When night is darkest and you’re crying out.
Though you don’t see me anymore,
You’ll find the light you’re looking for.
I know growing up’s not easy, and sometimes hard to understand,
But I’ll lead you into wisdom as we walkl hand in hand.
Your hope is closer than you know,
And you’ll find the light you’re looking for.

Verse 3
You’ll find the life you’re looking for.
With each new day you’re growing stronger still.
There’s such a wide world to explore,
And you’ll find the life you’re looking for.
When you’ve run your race and won you’re fight,
When you’ve kissed your beauty’s hand,
When you finally cross that river, hearing “Welcome home, child,”
We’ll walk together on that shore.
And you’ll find the life you’re looking for.
You’ll find the love you’re looking for.
Track Name: Simon Miner - The Story of Our God
Verse 1
In the beginning God made the heav’n and earth,
Formed the night and day, sky and sea gave birth,
Set apart dry land filled with beast and shrub
To make a home for the ones He would love

Refrain 1
Then the LORD God took from the dust mankind
In His holy image wrought.
It was very good for this blessed life
Told the story of our God.

Verse 2
Into this land so fair came the serpent’s ruse,
And we chose ourselves over God’s great truth.
We exchanged our home for the wilderness:
Our lives enslaved unto bitter death.

Refrain 2
Still the LORD pursued through the flame and cloud,
By His temple and His law.
He did not undo us despite our doubt
In the story of our God.

Verse 3
Then in our blackest night, fraught with fear and woe,
Our forgetful eyes glimpsed the One foretold.
He was God with us, clothed in flesh and blood
To show the way of God’s suffering love.

Refrain 3
We esteemed Him not, Love unrecognized,
And we killed Him on a cross.
Yet this twisted plot and this murdered Christ
Were the story of our God.

Verse 4
Unto the ground He fell as a seed is sown,
And He rose again sending forth His own
Through the miles and years, witness undeterred,
His story spread into all the earth.

Refrain 4
Now we join the Son in the Father’s praise
By His Spirit and His blood.
As He makes us one, we proclaim the way
To the story of our God.

Refrain 5
His return is soon; we shall see His face
And the fullness of His love.
All shall be renewed, evermore embracing
The story of our God.
So what is left to do but to take our place
In the story of our God.
Track Name: Ronan Miner - Jesus Died on the Cross
Jesus died on the cross,
Jesus died on the cross.
I love Him so
Because He died for me.
Track Name: Mark Vienneau, Rosemary Miner - As We Gather at Your Table
Verse 1
As we gather at Your table, we recall Your dying love.
We remember, Blessed Savior, how You gave Your life for us.
You were beaten, bruised, and buried like a humble Grain of Wheat.
Christ Who thus, our judgment carried, may we know You in this feast.

Verse 2
We receive these gifts together from Your outstretched pierced hand,
As Your Holy Spirit tethers heart to heart and man to man.
Word of God so richly spoken fills our senses and our souls.
Bread of Heaven, for us broken, make us whole and wholly Yours.
Track Name: Hannah Gansenberg, Rosemary Miner - O Christ Whose Blood
Verse 1
O Christ Whose blood poured down the tree,
Who drank our cup of enmity,
We call to mind Your death for us,
And lay our lives beneath Your cross.

Verse 2
Your thorn-rent brow, Your gouged side,
We marvel now, God crucified!
Your blood was spilt as flowing wine,
Our hearts to fill with life Divine.

Verse 3
A cov’nant new forged in Your blood
Forever proved the love of God,
So with this cup, we mark Your fall
That raises up and saves us all.
Track Name: Reilly Miner - You're in My Heart
You’re in my heart,
You’re in my heart,
O Lord my God, You’re in my heart.

O Lord my God
You are my friend.
O Lord my God, You’re in my heart.
Track Name: Alison Dunfee - Carried
Chorus
As you go through life’s sufferings and sorrows,
As you visit each day anew,
Just remember today and tomorrow
That I will carry you.

Verse 1
As a child alone and foresaken
You called my name and wondered whether I heard,
But all the time it was I who was listening,
I who cared, and I who carried you through.

Chorus
As you go through life’s sufferings and sorrows,
As you visit each day anew,
Just remember today and tomorrow
That I will carry you.

Verse 2
As you learned the world’s wisdom and knowledge
You turned away and wondered where I had gone
But all the time it was I who was watching,
I who waited, and I who walked with you.

Chorus
As you go through life’s sufferings and sorrows,
As you visit each day anew,
Just remember today and tomorrow
That I will carry you.

Verse 3
As the day is beginning and ending
And life besets you with sorrow and pain,
Just remember that I am beside you.
I am here, and I will carry you through.

Chorus
As you go through life’s sufferings and sorrows,
As you visit each day anew,
Just remember today and tomorrow
That I will carry you.

Chorus
As you go through life’s sufferings and sorrows,
As you visit each day anew,
Just remember today and tomorrow
That I will carry you.
That I will carry you.
Track Name: Sedric Miner, Ronan Miner, Reilly Miner - He Keeps Me Safe
He keeps me safe,
He keeps me safe,
The Lord our God and Father,
He keeps me safe.

He keeps me safe,
He keeps me safe,
The Lord our God and Father,
He keeps me safe.
Track Name: Simon Miner - Hope of the Ages
Verse 1
The people in darkness have seen a great light,
A light that is shining through the shadow of death.
And hearts that were hardened now break with the morning.
While all of creation is holding its breath…

Chorus
Hallelujah! Sing to the Lord!
Come and worship, come and adore!
For our God has come in flesh and blood
To set His people free.
Hope of the ages, Jesus is born.

Verse 2
Consider and marvel at the mystery of God,
And the manner He shows us our King and His Son,
Enthroned in a manger, asleep on the straw,
Helpless and holy and hope for us all.

Chorus
Hallelujah! Sing to the Lord!
Come and worship, come and adore!
For our God has come in flesh and blood
To set His people free.
Hope of the ages, Jesus is born.

Bridge
Glory to God, glory to God, God in the highest!
Peace on the earth, good will to men on whom His favor rests.
Glory to God, glory to God, God in the highest!
Peace on the earth, good will to men on whom His favor rests.
Glory to God, glory to God, God in the highest!
Peace on the earth, good will to men on whom His favor rests.
Glory to God, glory to God, God in the highest!
Peace on the earth, good will to men on whom His favor rests.

Chorus
Hallelujah! Sing to the Lord!
Come and worship, come and adore!
For our God has come in flesh and blood
To set His people free.
Hope of the ages, Jesus is born.
Hope of the ages, Jesus is born.
Track Name: Simon Miner - Beneath this Christmas Moon
Verse 1
Somewhere beneath this Christmas moon
our daughter sleeps tonight
in orphan’s bed, or mother’s womb,
or heaven’s hidden delight.
Her fragile heart our Father holds
and fashions in His hand
to bear the wisdom He bestows,
and share it as a friend.

Verse 2
Her name God etched upon my heart
though I know not her face:
a wondrous pang that bids me start
to make her dwelling place.
To join her precious life with ours
will call for greatest faith –
to shun our comforts, bare our scars,
to watch and hope and wait.

Verse 3
Yet sweeter joy God stirs us find
if we would dare this dream:
our thriving hearth a living sign
of how the Lord redeems.
So here I pledge my soul with yours
beneath this Christmas moon
to stay this calling and this course,
to bring home Sonja Ruth.
