"graves into gardens"

Verse 1:

I searched the world But it couldn't fill me
Man's empty praise And treasures that fade
Are never enough
Then You came along And put me back together
And every desire Is now satisfied
Here in Your love

 

Chorus:
Oh, there's nothing better than You
There's nothing better than You
Lord, there's nothing
Nothing is better than You


Verse 2:
I'm not afraid To show You my weakness
My failures and flaws
Lord, You've seen them all
And You still call me friend
'Cause the God of the mountain
Is the God of the valley
There's not a place
Your mercy and grace
Won't find me again

 

> Chorus (2x)


Bridge:
You turn mourning to dancing
You give beauty for ashes
You turn shame into glory
You're the only one who can


You turn mourning to dancing
You give beauty for ashes
You turn shame into glory
You're the only one who can

 

Bridge 2:
You turn graves into gardens
You turn bones into armies
You turn seas into highways
You're the only one who can
You're the only one who can

> Chorus (2x) > Bridge 2 (2x)


 

James 3:13 - 4:3

New Revised Standard Version

 

13 Who is wise and understanding among you? Show by your good life that your works are done with gentleness born of wisdom. 14 But if you have bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not be boastful and false to the truth. 15 Such wisdom does not come down from above, but is earthly, unspiritual, devilish. 16 For where there is envy and selfish ambition, there will also be disorder and wickedness of every kind. 17 But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without a trace of partiality or hypocrisy. 18 And a harvest of righteousness is sown in peace for[a] those who make peace.

 

4 Those conflicts and disputes among you, where do they come from? Do they not come from your cravings that are at war within you? 2 You want something and do not have it; so you commit murder. And you covet[b] something and cannot obtain it; so you engage in disputes and conflicts. You do not have, because you do not ask. 3 You ask and do not receive, because you ask wrongly, in order to spend what you get on your pleasures.

"act justly, love mercy,
walk humbly"

 

Verse 1:

It all comes down to this
What you require of me
Love my neighbor as myself
And You above all things

Chorus:

Act justly Love mercy
Walk humbly With You God
In all things In all ways
Walk humbly With You God

Verse 2:

It all comes down to this
To be Your hands and feet
Good news to all the world
All the truth will set us free

> Chorus

Bridge (2x):

It's beauty for ashes
It's mourning to dancing
It's closer and closer
The Kingdom of Heaven


Verse 3:

Then years from now we'll see
The fruit our hands have sown
Faith just like a seed
The only way it grows

> Chorus
