MercyMe All Because Of This

Why do we do the things we do

How can we sing when there seems no reason to

How do we smile when there’s not much to smile about

When the world is down who are we to stand and shout

They wonder why we do the things we do

[CHORUS]

It’s all because of this

It’s all because of this

We’ve tasted love, tasted hope, tasted holiness

[REPEAT]

And they wonder why, we do the things we do

MercyMe Most Important Thing

If I could only throw

One thing past your way

It’d be that you know

That Jesus loves you

If there was just one thing

That I could sing to you

It’d be that you know

That Jesus loves you

Well He’s the most important thing yesterday

Well He’s the most important thing to come

Well He’s the most important thing today, yeah

Above all other things

This world has to give

There’s just one thing that saves

‘Cause Jesus loves you

Stop looking over time

For someone who will care

Is standing right beside you

‘Cause Jesus loves you

Well He’s the most important thing yesterday

Well He’s the most important thing to come

Well He’s the most important thing today, yeah

Just give your heart to Him

And let Him do great things

So that we all can say

Jesus, we love you

Jesus, we love you

Jesus, we love you

Jesus, we love you

Well He’s the most important thing yesterday

Well He’s the most important thing to come

Well He’s the most important thing today, yeah

MercyMe We Win

I don’t, have to know you, just to know you

Have been lied to at some point or place

Well, I can relate

And you’re wondering, if it’s worth it

Heartbroken, feeling worthless

Oh the hurt is too great

Like a punch in the face

But don’t forget

We’ve got something else in common

Bigger than all our pain and all our problems

This goes out to anyone down for the count

It’s not over

Don’t give up, don’t throw in the towel

Just remember, who you belong to

Let Me remind you

How this ends

We win

Woah, we win

We get pushed down, we get beat up

So afraid life’s gonna keep us

Up against the ropes

But hang on there’s hope

‘Cause if Christ is inside us it won’t be a fair fight

‘Cause Deep down we know

How the story goes

This goes out to anyone down for the count

It’s not over

Don’t give up, don’t throw in the towel

Just remember, who you belong to

Let Me remind you

How this ends

We win

Woah, we win

We win

Woah, we win

Ain’t no stopping us

He’s not done with us

We are more

More than conquerors

Ain’t no stopping us

He’s not done with us

We, are

More than conquerors!

Just remember, who you belong to

Let Me remind you

How this ends

We win

Woah, we win

We win

Woah, we win

Ain’t no stopping us

He’s not done with us

We are more

More than conquerors

Ain’t no stopping us

He’s not done with us

We, are

More than conquerors!

Ain’t no stopping us

He’s not done with us

We are more

More than conquerors

Ain’t no stopping us

He’s not done with us

We, are

More than conquerors!

MercyMe Your Kingdom Come

We long to sit at your feet

We long to see your face

We long to smell the rain of your anointing

We long to be in You

[Chorus:]

Hear our hearts oh hear our voice

To you oh God we will rejoice

We are your bride and we wear your ring

Until your return we will sing

That we long to see You

[Bridge:]

How much longer shall we wait

Till we finally see the sun

Break through the eastern gate

Let your kingdom come

Hallelujah to the Lamb [repeat]

MercyMe Diary

Day one, drifting out at sea

No sign of land, no sign of hope for me

Drifting to and fro by the waves of complacency

I’m just so tired of fighting to breathe

Day two or day six, day twenty, day fifty

They’re all the same, nothing changes for me

When will I ever be rescued?

When will I ever be free?

Oh, God, someone hear me someone, please, yeah

But wait, oh, but wait, there’s a man

Walking above all of this that surrounds me

He takes my hand, takes my heart, rips me free

Rips me free, rips me free, rips me free

How can I ever repay You, mister?

For setting my desperate soul on dry land

For sending those storms away with a whisper

For taking all of my burdens in Your hands

In Your hands, in Your hands

Today things have most certainly changed

All of my pain for all God’s hope exchanged

When will I ever be rescued?

That was my desperate plea

And God, You heard me and set me free

How can I ever repay You, mister?

For setting my desperate soul on dry land

For sending those storms away with a whisper

For taking all of my burdens in Your hands

In Your hands, in Your hands

How can I ever repay You, mister?

For setting my desperate soul on dry land

For sending those storms away with a whisper

For taking all of my burdens

All of my burdens in Your hands

MercyMe Only You Remain

[Verse 1:]

Only One never having a beginning

Only One who reigns when everything is ending

High above

Glorious and true

[Pre-Chorus:]

We sing, Holy, the only uncreated One

Holy, the Light that was before the sun

You shine

And even when the stars have left the sky

[Chorus:]

You remain

Even when the earth is shaken

You remain

Even when our kings have fallen

Every mountain standing tall will crash into the sea

You were, You are, You will be

Only You remain

[Verse 2:]

Only One who stood before the universe

Only One authored life with just a word

Lord of all

There is none like You

[Bridge:]

Eternal

Immortal

Forever the same

(You remain)

MercyMe I Can Only Imagine

I can only imagine what it will be like

When I walk by your side

I can only imagine what my eyes will see

When your face is before me

I can only imagine

Yeah

Surrounded by your glory

What will my heart feel?

Will I dance for you, Jesus,

Or in awe of you be still?

Will I stand in your presence

Or to my knees will I fall?

Will I sing hallelujah?

Will I be able to speak at all?

I can only imagine

I can only imagine

I can only imagine when that day comes

And I find myself standing in the sun

I can only imagine when all I will do

Is forever, forever worship you

I can only imagine, yeah

I can only imagine

Surrounded by your glory

What will my heart feel?

Will I dance for you, Jesus,

Or in awe of you be still?

Will I stand in your presence

Or to my knees will I fall?

Will I sing hallelujah?

Will I be able to speak at all?

I can only imagine

Yeah

I can only imagine

Surrounded by your glory

What will my heart feel?

Will I dance for you, Jesus,

Or in awe of you be still?

Will I stand in your presence

Or to my knees will I fall?

Will I sing hallelujah?

Will I be able to speak at all?

I can only imagine

Yeah

I can only imagine

I can only imagine

Yeah

I can only imagine

I can only imagine

I can only imagine

I can only imagine

When all I will do

Is forever, forever worship you

I can only imagine

MercyMe Old Man

Old man walking down the street

Suitcase in one hand

Burdens in the other

Searching the land

He just wants to find Jesus

He just wants to be free

He looks in all of

The stuff of this world

Trying to find someone

Who’s not of this world

He just wants to find Jesus

He just wants to be free

‘To anyone who will listen’

He said, ‘My tears won’t let me see

I need to find this Savior

Tell me, tell me, where could he be?’

‘I just want to find Jesus

I just want to be free

I need to be free’

I told him how to find Him

I told him what he had to do

I said, ‘You don’t have to go searching

Thanks to grace, He’ll come to you’

The old man found Jesus

Jesus set him free

New man walking down the street

With a suitcase in his hand

His Bible in the other

Searching the land

He just wants to find people

Who just want to be free, yeah

He just wants to show them Jesus

‘Cause that’s what they need

It’s what they need

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, oh

We all need, we need Jesus

We all need, we need a friend

We all need, we need Jesus

We all need to see His hands

We need Jesus

We need Jesus

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

MercyMe I Worship You

I’ve been walking with a big grin

Singing with my eyes closed

Lifting up my hands

I’ve been lost in the moment

Sending up praises

Now I think I understand

When I open up and let it flow

I feel your touch and then I know

[CHORUS:]

I can never live without it

And I’m never going to doubt it

Everyday it’s new, yeah

There’s nothing any better

I’ll be singing it forever

I worship you

I’m standing on the edge now

Looking to a new place

Going deeper still

The feeling is electric

The power and the glory

Just move me where you will

Cause you take the song and make it fly

Into my soul and that is why

[CHORUS]

[BRIDGE:]

I just want to dive into your grace

I want to feel your presence, seek your face

I just want to be where you are

I can never live without it

And I’m never going to doubt it

Everyday is new, yeah

[REPEAT]

[CHORUS]

MercyMe Never The Less

So tell me, what’s a man like You

Doing in a place like this?

How can You see any kind of hope

Through all of this mess?

We’ve tuned You out in every way

And found the truth is whatever that we say

Your sovereign plan we’ve dismissed

And sealed it all with a kiss

So let me ask You again

What’s a man like You

Doing in a place like this?

Nevertheless, You’ve hear our cries

You’ve sacrificed

Your name has been glorified

Our sins confessed, our faith addressed

You’ve saved us nevertheless

Oh, the mess we’ve made

And oh, the price You’ve paid

Why do You love us? Why show Your face?

When we’re unfaithful You still have faith

What is it that You see in us?

That keeps You from saying ‘that’s enough’

Oh, Your amazing grace

Nevertheless, You’ve hear our cries

You’ve sacrificed

Your name has been glorified

Our sins confessed, our faith addressed

You’ve saved us nevertheless

If my people called by my name

If they will humble themselves and pray

And seek my face and turn from their sins

Oh, I will hear and forgive them

Nevertheless

And how precious is the throne

That makes me white as snow

Ooh, that I know

Nothing but the blood of Jesus

Nothing but the blood

Nothing but
