“This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you. No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all that I have heard from my Father I have made known to you. You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you. These things I command you, so that you will love one another." John 15:12-17

Track Name: Prevail
These shadows around me, they follow closely with no end in sight
His loving grace prevails, forgive my faults declare His glory

Light the nightmares of my crowded mind
Seek the truth at hand, God hear my cry
Wash away the deceit of my enemy
My Lord I'm Yours so give me thy strength


Hold me down keep me grounded and steadfast
Don't give in to the sin I will fight back
You are my hope and the savior for the broken
Show me Your love, I'm bound by your covenant

Steadfast and grounded
Track Name: Dead
How could this be? I turned my back on you
How could this be? My eyes have wandered off
How could this be? How could I forget?
How could this be? God save me from myself

This train it's derailed, and time and time I've failed
Can't get back on track, God give me the strength I lack
Must I do the things I hate? Situations I create
No longer walking blindly, eyes opened to reality

No more heartache
No more sorrow
My life no longer hollow

My flesh is weak, I die to it
My mind is weak, I die to it
This world brings death, I turn from it
My life I give, renewed I live

I am dead
Dead to self
I am dead
Dead to self
Track Name: Battleground
In a world where fear abounds, broken lives but the lost are found
This battle rages every day so take your sword and fight with faith

This is where we turn the tide
Moving forward with the will to survive
This battle rages everyday, so take your sword and fight with faith

The only thing in our vision is triumph
We persevere through pain and trials
The enemy always in my sight
Underestimates my will to fight

So break these walls down with our might
Darkness trembles at the sight of light
The war rages but the battle is won
My God triumphs His will be done
Track Name: 144
Losing self control and peace of mind
Falling behind, I'll take back my life
God You promised Grace and You're holding true
I've lost my way but I refuse to lose

Set Free

Don't you fear the reaper
Remain steadfast
Bring me, bring me back

You train my hands for war
In the face of death on my lips the sword
And in the midst of scorn
You are my refuge the battle is yours

Never fail
Never fail
Track Name: Convictions
This stand we choose to take
Our faith will never shake
Our God, our family, our friends
We won't fall victim to your trends

We'll hold fast to our convictions
Stand for truth when no one listens
To us this is more than just sound
We scream these words that hope may be found

This is our stand
We will carry on

Stay true
Overcome the world

Here we stand against oppositions
Always holding true to our Convictions
This is where we belong
Well scream this message on and on

On this narrow road, we'll continue on
Never giving in, never giving up

This is our stand
We'll carry on
Track Name: Relinquish
One Way
One Truth
One Life
Our Only Hope
