Track Name: All Ye Refugees
I am the One, the earth is my handmade work
The skies I laid them wide, beauty unfurled
Horizon to horizon
Creation to creation, sings you home

Chorus
Welcome home, gather round
all ye refugees, come in.

Oh refugee, I did not cast you out
In death and broken ground, Salvation springs
My body and my blood, the healing that you need
Come and receive (Chorus)

Watch and wait and see, what is yet to be
Watch and wait and see, for the morning

Go out in joy and join the great procession
The mountains and the heav’ns all will rejoice
horizon to horizon, creation to creation
horizon to horizon, creation to creation
With one voice (Chorus)

Track Name: We Will Feast In The House Of Zion
Chorus
We will feast in the house of Zion
We will sing with our hearts restored
He has done great things, we will say together
We will feast and weep no more

We will not be burned by the fire
He is the LORD our God
We are not consumed, by the flood
Upheld, protected, gathered up (Chorus)

In the dark of night, before the dawn
My soul, be not afraid
For the promised morning, oh how long?
Oh God of Jacob, be my strength (Chorus)

Every vow we’ve broken and betrayed
You are the Faithful one
And from the garden to the grave
Bind us together, bring shalom. (Chorus)

Track Name: Almighty God
Almighty God to you all hearts are open
Search and know our thoughts and anxious fears
Wash us in the fountain of your mercy
Come with your light, we cannot hide from you

Almighty God to you all hearts are open
With gratitude we raise our song to you
Come and fill the praises of your people
In grace and truth, you make us new again

Chorus
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah

Almighty God to you all hearts are open
We long for more than what this world provides
No shallow spring will ever satisfy us
Your river deep floods over everything (Chorus)

To you all hearts are open, Almighty God… (Chorus)

Track Name: My Help My God (Psalm 42)
Why are you so full of heaviness?
Why are you disquieted within?
O my soul, O my soul

As the deer longs for the water brooks
So my soul it longs, it thirsts for you
O my God, O my God

Chorus
Put your trust in God, I will yet give thanks to him
Put your trust in God, I will yet give thanks to him
Put your trust in God, I will yet give thanks to him
My help, my God

Deep calls unto deep like ocean waves,
All your floods and rapids on me break
Oh my soul, O my soul

I will say unto my God, my strength,
“How is it you have forgotten me?
O how long? O how long?” (Chorus)

Yahweh grants his kindness in the day
Through the night his song, it is with me.
Oh my God, O my God… (Chorus)

Track Name: Sweet Comfort
Whatever my God ordains is right
His holy will abides
I will be still whatever he does
And follow where he guides

Chorus
Sweet comfort, sweet comfort
Yet shall fill my heart
Sweet comfort, sweet comfort
Sorrow shall depart

Whatever my God ordains is right
He makes my feet to stand
Though sorrow, need, or death be mine
He holds me in his hand (Chorus)

This bitter cup, I take it
My fainting heart restored
So here I stand, unshaken
I trust upon the Lord (Chorus)

He is my God though dark my road
He holds me, I shall not fall
Whatever my God ordains as right
To him I leave it all. (Chorus)

Track Name: All Your Works Are Good (Psalm 104)
The moon it marks the seasons
The sun knows when to go down
The ocean holds its creatures
The river knows its bounds

The birds, the trees, the cattle
And all things great and small
We find our place in creation
Your hand sustains it all

Chorus
All your works are good
All your works are good
From everlasting, to everlasting
All your works are good

He makes the clouds his chariot
He wraps himself in light
He stretches out the heavens,
like a tent across the sky

He knows our every burden
When darkness veils our eyes
He comes with spring returning,
Bringing death to life (Chorus)

As we labor until evening
There’s a message on the wind
Be still and know your maker
Be satisfied in Him (Chorus)

Track Name: Flourishing (Psalm 119)
Teach me, oh God to follow your decrees
Give me understanding, your word, I wanna keep
Direct me in the path, of your commands
For there I find delight, my will is in your hands

Chorus
Turn my heart away from worthless things
Preserve my life, according to your ways
Take away disgrace
You hold me in my place--flourishing

Fulfill your promise to the ones you love
Within your ways we walk, for your laws are good
Temptation loses pow’r, my soul’s revived
In righteousness, oh God, preserve my life. (Chorus)

Track Name: My Soul Finds Rest (Psalm 62)
Oh my God hear my cry
From the depths I call out to you
You give your mercy and light
In the dark, in the wilderness

Chorus
My soul finds rest in God alone
My salvation comes from him
My soul finds rest, God is my home
I will not be shaken, I will not be shaken.

You are my shield and my strength
Train my feet for this battle
Our God is mighty to save
I will wait, I will wait for him (Chorus)

O my strength, I sing praise to you
O my strength, I sing praise to you
In joy or pain, I sing praise to you
Night or day, I sing praise to you (Chorus)

Track Name: From The Rising Of The Sun (Psalm 113)
Hallelujah, give praise, you servants
Praise the name of the LORD
Let the name of the LORD be blessed
from now and forevermore.

From the rising of the sun, to it’s going down
Let the name of the LORD be praised, from the rising of the sun.

The LORD is high above all nations, and his glory above the heavens,
Who is like the LORD our God? Who sits enthroned on high?
Who is like the LORD our God? Who stoops to behold,
The heavens and the earth?

From the rising of the sun, to it’s going down
Let the name of the LORD be praised, from the rising of the sun.

Track Name: Send Out Your Light (Psalm 43)
Vindicate me, O God, and defend my cause
Against the deceitful man, O deliver us
For you are the God in whom I take refuge
Why have you rejected me? I walk around confused.

Chorus
Send out your light and truth
Let them lead me
Bring me to your holy hill
To your dwelling
Then I will go to the alter of God
To God, my exceeding joy
Then I will praise him with my guitar
Oh my joy, my joy

Why are you cast down low, o my soul?
Why are you cast down low, and in turmoil?
Hope in God, for I shall again praise him
Hope in God, for he is my salvation. (Chorus)

Track Name: Have Mercy
Have mercy on us
Have mercy on us, O Lord
Have mercy, O Lord
Have mercy

Oh help my unbelief
Oh help my unbelief, O Lord
Have mercy, O Lord
Have mercy
