Holy Lovely

Holy Lovely was written back in the Mali days and was one of our more known songs.

Useful as an upbeat praise song, it's chord progression in the chorus is reminiscent of the common melodies and musical themes of 16th century hymns.

Magnify

"Magnify" is a medium tempoed, praise song that draws from Psalm 34 that says, "O magnify the Lord with me, let us exalt his name together."

LYRICS

How can you change when your heart’s full of stone? How can you cry when all your feelings are gone? How can you run with your feet tied down? How can you stand on shaking ground? How can you love from a selfish place? What is belief if you don’t obey? Here I am with my hands held high

Because of You… only you Jesus Because of You… only you Jesus

How can you hear when you don’t understand? ?How can you see if you can’t comprehend? How can you build when you’re falling apart? How can you care from a broken heart? How can you give when your joy is gone? What is hope if you’re all alone? Here I am with my hands held high

Because of You… only you Jesus Because of You… only you Jesus Now I know what love is… It’s because of You, only You Now I know what love is… It’s because of You, only You

Here I am with my hands held high I stand by grace, I’m trusting in You I’m not wondering how I’m not asking why, Cause I know… I know

Because of You… only you Jesus Because of You… only you Jesus Now I know what love is… It’s because of You, only You Now I know what love is… It’s because of You, only You
