Track Name: O Savior, Rend the Heavens Wide [feat. Andrew Storrs]
1. O Savior, rend the heavens wide;
Come down, come down with mighty stride;
Unlock the gates, the doors break down;
Unbar the way to heaven's crown.

2. O Morning Star, O radiant Sun,
When will our hearts behold your dawn?
Oh Sun, arise! Without your light
We grope in gloom and dark of night.

3. Sin's dreadful doom around us lies;
Grim death looms fierce before our eyes.
Oh, come, lead us with mighty hand
Through exile to the promised land.

4. There shall we all our praises bring
Ever to you, our Savior King;
There shall we laud you and adore
Forever and forevermore.
Track Name: Psalm 57 (Be Exalted) [feat. Annie Lievens]
1. O God, be merciful to me.
My soul, take refuge in the Lord.
I kneel beneath thy spreading wing.
O save me from the threat’ning storm.

Be exalted above the heavens!
Let your glory be over all the earth,
Let your glory be over all the earth!

2. My heart is fixed, my song shall raise
Immortal honors to thy name.
Awake, my tongue, to sound his praise.
Awake, my soul, to lift his name!

3. Your steadfast love is great, O God.
I rest my hope in thee alone;
I’ll spread thy sacred truths abroad,
To all mankind thy love make known.
Track Name: Go to Dark Gethsemane [feat. Matt Grimsley]
1. Go to dark Gethsemane,
You who feel the tempter's power;
Your Redeemer's conflict see,
Watch with Him one bitter hour;
Turn not, turn not from His griefs away;
Learn of Jesus Christ to pray.

2. See Him at the judgment hall:
Beaten, bound, reviled, arraigned;
O the wormwood and the gall!
O the pangs His soul sustained!
Shun not, shun not suffering, shame, or loss;
Learn of Christ to bear the cross.

3. Calvary's mournful mountain climb;
There, adoring at His feet
Mark that miracle of time,
God's own sacrifice complete:
"It is finished!" hear our Savior cry;
Learn of Jesus Christ to die.

4. Early hasten to the tomb
Where they laid His breathless clay.
All is solitude and gloom;
Who has taken Him away?
Christ is risen! Yes, He meets our eyes;
Savior, teach us so to rise.
Track Name: Gloria Patri [feat. Andrew Storrs]
Glory be to the Father, glory be to the Son,
Glory be to the Spirit, Three in One.
As it was in the beginning it will be forever, amen. Amen. Amen.
Track Name: Psalm 51 [feat. Annie Lievens]
1. O, have mercy God according to your steadfast love.
According to the richness of your tenderness and grace.
Wash me thoroughly from all of my iniquity.
Lord, take all of this sin from me, for against You I am wrong.

Let these bones that You have broken rejoice, rejoice!
Let me hear in joy and gladness Your voice, Your voice.
Create in me a clean heart, God. Renew Your spirit in me, God!
Cast me not away, O God. Restore to me Your joy!

2. Lord, my sins, I know. They seem to all before me go.
From me does naught but evil flow. I can’t escape the curse.
You are justified and blameless, Lord, if You decide
To judge me in my haughty pride, for I was born in sin.

3. But You shall wash me clean whiter than the snow I’ll be.
From bloody hands to purity, from darkness into light.
So, I’ll lift up my eyes and praise You with a heart contrite.
In me, again, You will delight, so open up my lips.
Track Name: Revelation 21 (All Things New) [feat. Matt Grimsley]
1. Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth.
Redeeming all that sin did to the first;
The chaos of our world is no more.

2. New Jerusalem, holy city out of heaven,
Coming down like a bride dressed for her husband;
The dwelling place of God is with us.

All things new! Behold, behold I am making
All things new! Behold!

3. No more tears, God will wipe them from our eyes.
Death is gone, no more sorrowful goodbyes;
The former things have passed away.  

B. How long, oh Lord? How long, oh Lord?
How long, oh Lord, how long?
Till we see your face, know your embrace,
Till endless day, how long?  
Track Name: Franklin Sanctus (Live)
Holy (holy), holy (holy), holy Lord.
Holy (holy), holy (holy), God of pow’r and might,
Heav’n and earth are full of your glory.
Hosanna in the highest (hosanna in the highest).
Blessed (blessed) is he (is he)
Who comes in the name of the Lord.
Hosanna in the highest (hosanna in the highest).
Hosanna in the highest (hosanna in the highest).
Hosanna in the highest (hosanna in the highest).
