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

 

VERSE 2

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 3

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

 

VERSE 4

‘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

 

BRIDGE

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

 

Come out of that Grave (Resurrection Power)

 

VERSE 1 

There’s a sling in my voice

And a stone in my praise

Pushing back when the darkest weapons form

There’s a power on my lips

Even death can’t defy

When the name of our God is lifted high

 

CHORUS

‘Cause there is resurrection power

When we sing the name of Jesus

Resurrection power

When we raise a mighty sound

So come on let the praise get loud

Make that empty grave resound

‘Cause there is resurrection power

In His name

 

VERSE 2

There are days I have seen

Filled with heartache and loss

That have buried my heart beneath the weight

But every time His praise breaks out

Dead things rise up from the ground

I won’t leave my song inside that empty grave

 

BRIDGE

Dead man come out of that grave

Come out of that grave when we sing

Captives let go of those chains

Let go of those chains when we praise

 

Reign Above it All

 

VERSE 1 

The reign of darkness now has ended

In the kingdom of light

In the kingdom of light

Forever under Your dominion

You’re the King of my life

You’re the King of my life

 

CHORUS

You reign above it all

You reign above it all

Over the universe

And over every heart

There is no higher name

Jesus You reign above it all

 

VERSE 2

On the cross the work was finished

God You poured out Your life

Just to give us new life

Now from the lips of the forgiven

Hear an anthem arise

‘Cause Jesus You’re alive

 

CHORUS 2

Let all of heaven and the earth erupt in song

Sing hallelujah to the Everlasting One

There is no higher name

Jesus You reign above it all

You reign above it all

 

BRIDGE

You sent the darkness running

Out of an empty grave

Now seated alone in glory

Enthroned on the highest praise
