Track Name: Praise You For The Blood
What offence can flight or flee the power of your blood?
All death disarmed and debt dissolved by the power of your blood
What darkness deep evades the light of the power of your blood?
What poverty can stay in need by the riches of your blood?

It is well with my soul, for this I know, this I know
Every crimson stain, Jesus washed away
It is well with my soul, for this I know, this I know
Jesus I will praise you for the blood

As far as the skies above the earth
Great is the love you've given us
As far as the east is from the west
You've taken our sins away from us
Track Name: My Reason
How could I catch a glimpse of you,
And my heart not turn to praise? You are beautiful
How could I hear you call my name,
And my feet not run to you? You are faithful God

The more I know you, my heart’s surrendering
The more I see you, the more my soul must sing

My reason, my purpose, my intent, my resolve
Is to worship You
My duty, my design, my honour, my pursuit,
Is to worship You

How could I look upon the stars,
And not be filled with awe? You are glorious
How could I know your saving grace,
And not fall down on my knees? You are merciful

I was made to worship, I was born to praise You
I was made to worship You
Track Name: Crown Of Praise
I offer you this crown of praise, formed of my heart, my life, my days
'Surrender' fashions precious jewels, and sacrifice - the gold for you
And here my alabaster jar - Where lie the treasures of my heart
When 'gratitude's' too weak a form, I pour myself, my life, my all

All blessing, all honour is yours, forever and ever, amen
All glory, all power is yours, forever and ever, amen

The words of man cannot convey, my debt of love, my breadth of praise
For every hymn and melody, but a token of the love I bring
From time where cells began to form, you watched within my mothers womb
And reason you composed my frame, that I may live to raise your name

I do not fear the day I die, for you my God are by my side
And final breath won't cease my song, for this symphony has just begun
