Track Name: Hello Hummingbird
**Hello hummingbird, will you hear my song?
Can you tell me if I'm really right, or if I'm wrong?
'cause I feel like I'm walking oh so aimlessly
Is this really who I want to be?

Sitting at my table staring at my bowl of Cheerios
Dreading the full day routine that's ahead of me
Puttin' on my shoes, my jacket, checkin' on my clothes
Starting the car, thinking "is this what I want to be?"
To be a product of the next, new trend
To be a product that was created by my friends'
To shape the way I am just to gain some acceptance
What exactly defines (your) independence?
Can I really say "Yes, I am satisfied"?
When I know deep inside that I never really tried
Will I find some worth in that new, shiny thing?
At the end of the day, am I worth anything,
Or not? Will I rot in my own complacency?
Is this path that I'm walking helping me to be free?
Free as a bird try'na fly with clipped wings
Sometimes I just want to break out and sing

**

So for the second verse, let's try double-time
Get a new state of mind. Can I just go with the flow?
Do I show by the way that I walk and I talk
That it ain't lip service, I'm breaking the mold
So cold...so cold, your shoulders they turn away
Even though you may try so hard to fit in, you simply can't relate
Can I get an "amen" to the fact that everyone is an attention whore?
Even though three 'lefts' make a 'right' it don't mean that you gotta even the score (jerk..)
So bored...so bored, can I really just live this way?
Waiting for the next big thing, just biding my time 'till everything comes my way
Yes, I'm lazy, my favorite thing to do is to "YouTube"
With a big stack of Oreos and a glass of milk (oh, you too?? I see.)
Maybe I should really consider just doing some actual work
'stead of watching the anime, it's truly turning my mind to dirt
We say "screw the media!" but it's like an I.V. into our veins
Just try going two weeks without connections. Makes you go insane.
If only we could make some better use of our time
I know! I'll end this verse with me singing this rhyme
Track Name: Never Change
**You wanna be together with me for eternity?
You turn your head the other way and choose to feed your greed.
You are my masterpiece, I have washed your feet.
My love for you will never change, I will never change.

_____________________________

Our love for each other was so pure.
I looked out for you, you reached out to me.
We would never be separated by simple aberration,
-cause of regular collaborations.
Yes, our times together were so sweet and
on the weekends we would have our meetings.
You were seeking my attention,
you called me every single day for - conversation.
You were confident even when the problems hit.
Obstacles and potholes were challenges.
You trusted me - amidst your disarray.
I hoped you stayed to hear - what I had to say.
My encouragement - was your strength to carry on,
even though you relied on Dom Perignon.
You wanted a higher love, I provided.
-You are my bride, why did you fight it?

You're holding out for something big to happen
All you really need are my arms to be wrapped in
You know that, but you refuse to admit that I am the only one that you're lackin
What happened to the passion? You're lazy
Letting all the stupid things drive you crazy
I told you, I am everything you're ever gonna need
So please let go of it all,
You see the pain that I felt for you then?
The gift you received with your every single "amen?
It's been a few days, months, or years since the last time I took away your tears, your fears
I miss you...well did you know that?
I paid the price so you never gotta look back
All I want is to love and be loved in return.

I stand here willing to embrace your faults
with open arms, I hope that you see my scars.
On the cross I died for you.
Bearing every single lashing that the Romans threw.
The same people that praised the Messiah
ridiculed me in the crowd as I expired.
But it had to be done to eliminate the division by killing me, the begotten son.
Redemption's, but a page away. I paved a way;
my love and grace will never fade away.
I paid the ultimate price to take the shame away.
Endure the wrath of the maker.
I took on the human flesh.
Side was punctured, I was declared as dead.
Three days later I rose, defeating death.
The great exchange wiped away your debt.
Track Name: Running
*God you called out to me, so now I'm calling out to
You took my fetters that chained me to this world and broke them
Too many days I end up falling on my face...
Lord, give me your strength, for I will run this race

Sam Ock:
I wanna be back in the place where I used to be
Lookin' at the world through a window and all that I really wanna see is a light, a spark
And I'd like to run as far as I can for you
My lord, my God, it's all for you
Even when I'm at the very last of my breaths, I'll run with you 'til I meet with death
But I know that I can't just look through a glass
Tore the veil, God, you took my past and made it
So fresh, so new, you showed me the dark and I learned how to
Keep lookin' for the light, keep walkin' takin' your hand when I always fall down
Chasin' your glory since you first found me, lonely, with nobody around
J. Han:
I'm walking along the shoreline, pondering what to say
I don't know what to expect, all I see is the dawn of day
The sun arises, the ocean's reflecting all of your beauty.
These rays of light are shining down upon me; "Lord here I am, please use me!"
Now I'm running in the fields of your glory; dancing in the clouds, I'm dazed.
cause the fragrance around me is so amazing, literally phased by grace.
We were face to face, back when our communion wasn't broken then.
Tugging and pulling, feels like I'm still living in a state of sin.
The cycle begins again, searching and seeking for dividends.
Your golden deposit, the seal, the spirit of God is teaching me how I should live
Victory's on the cross and all of our chains are tossed out!
Freedom from bondage, now I can go cause I've been bought out.
I'll keep my focus towards the heavens and future home.
But as for now, I'll be working hard with the land I own.
You give me purpose, eternal hope, and the living water.
Thank you my bread of life, my cornerstone, my loving father.

CL:

The epitome how a sinner be, running from the One who created me in His imagery
Gratifying in the sins, illiterate of the consequences it was costing Him on the tree
Yet while I was a sinner, He died for me, His bride to be, I'm proud to be
Called a son of God through Christ my Majestic Majesty

Pulled me from the dark shackles of the world, yokes crackled in the name of the Highest
Now I'm biased to the world, for the Lord poured living water when my soul was the driest
Quenching every need, finding contentment, on my knees, relentless praying never cease
With a peace that's endless, living in a love that depends on the One who is Tremendous

Runnin and chasin after the One and only Holy Messiah
Who kept me safe in His arms when living a life that deserved to expire
I aspire to be inspired Lord for You are the One I admire
I will run after You, pursue to be renewed daily, till my life has retired


*God you called out to me, so now I'm calling out to
You took my fetters that chained me to this world and broke them
Too many days I end up falling on my face...
Lord, give me your strength, for I will run this race
Track Name: See You in Heaven
**We are your church and you are our God/
We will give you all our praise/
And as our lives, they slowly come to an end/
As your church together we'll sing

(Praise, praise the Lord)
(Praise, praise the Lord)
(Praise, praise the Lord)
(When all is done, we'll see you in Heaven)


(J. Han)

To all my people - holding down the block for
the gospel like apostle Paul; I am pleased to
hear about your strong faith like the folks in Ephesians.
May the Father give you grace and peace and
bestow an overflow of understanding
for the hope He gives to man.
It is amazing to see the body of Christ
unite to stand together for God's commandments.
So keep fighting the good fight despite the violence
that might have been from the cunning leviathan.
I speak of 1 Peter 1: 6, 7.
cause ahead of us there's a wonderful joy in heaven.
It delighted the Father to adopt us
into His family, now we can call him Abba.
Thank God for the guarantee
he made when he sent us the third eternal person of the trinity.

(CL)

No need for dreaming, Im reaching the Heavenly
Hills richer than Beverly, Holy Spirit my guarantee
Meet the Lord, face to face, thank the Father for His grace
Since the Lord saved my place, finished runnin in His race

In His Kingdom and reapin the benefits
Of seeking His relevance, Concealing the venomous
Then healing the many sins, Through Jesus who's Heaven sent
So I'll praise Him all my life with glorifying intent

And I plan to see my brothers and sisters
Reach out and preach from the Scripture so they can see the great picture
Jesus died so we can share in His Kingdom, in Him from sin we have freedom
I hope you see that you need Him

Jesus pour out The Spirit, The Holy Counselor
Counsel us to be counselors, counsel the needing for Your Word
So we can usher our sisters and brothers
Lead'em to a place like no other, Your Heavenly Realms forever dwell


(Sam Ock)

My brothers, my sisters, everyone I know/
Remember the last thing that Jesus said was "Go"/
Go make disciples of all and every nation/
We've been commissioned to spread this salvation/
Have patience, God is working within/
'Ruach HaKodesh' is helping you battle your sin/
When you struggle, He uses you, His child/
You will feel pain, but it's only for a while/
Let your mind go of what has gone behind you/
We always forget about what we're pressing on to/
We long for, we stray, chasing other things/
We forget that we're wearing these heavenly rings/
As a reminder, we don't deserve His love/
We don't deserve the grace, or embrace from the Son/
Through glorification we can join the celebration/
All of God's people together we say "Amen!"
Track Name: The Vision
J. Han:

Please understand I've been to sunday service every week.
Steadily taking my notes and happily going to every retreat.
Serving the youth is a blast, but it's almost like a duty.
I'm running through the motions, except nobody can see right through me.
I know the rituals, what tools to use to fix you up.
Heard marvelous testimonies, but they all seem fictional.
I've been told that Christ alone is sufficient.
The Bible's so insipid, my soul isn't convinced to live different.

CL:

Well, the reason alone, we're prone to live condoning what the Lord has shown
Makin excuses, refusing to move just a step back allowing the Lord to use us
We just goto church, through the motions, losing focus on what truly brought us there in the first place
So we're doing plenty, but we're feelin empty, works rather than faith has become the main focus

If that's the case the cross is emptied, Christ is nullified and He died for nothing
But we signify that our works justify our place, we're living mediocre doing something
That's the issue, we're fixed to the thigns that we're doing thinking we're drawing ever closer to Christ
When the real picture is an intimate relationship, no wonder no desire lies to give up your life

J. Han:

See that's the thing, I know I gotta give up my life to the King.
But it's just so hard cause I keep on falling every time I step into the ring.
Even though I'm busy I still try to go and read a passage.
At least I'm not out drinking or partying like a savage.

- I'm pretty sure you cannot lose salvation when you believe in Christ.
- Plus if you profess Him as Lord with your mouth, then you got - eternal life.
I think that's Romans 10, but bro it's my time to go.
It's been a long day, - so I gotta make my way back home.

*It was great talking to you man. I'll see ya later, I'm gonna go sleep soon. Goodnight*
*Snore* *Snore* Huh? Where am I?

J. Han:

Who is that? Wait...
I think it is... gasp...Lord, Lord!
Here I am! It's my time to enter your Kingdom Lord.
I'm really excited to sing with the angels and worship you Lord.

*Wait, what's happening? Why do I see darkness?*
*[I never knew you, depart from me, you worker of lawlessness]. *

Noooo!!! All this time I thought my future was secure.
But I was such a fool, I was so sure I was kosher.

Now I gotta deal with this gnashing of teeth and burning flames.
Please! I don't wanna be like the rich man, give me one more day!
*RING!* Hello? Chung...man I'm so glad you called,
I just had a horrible dream.

CL:

Your vision my brother is true to the very word spoken from Jesus our Lord Matthew 7:21-22, He's seeking those living His will that's for sure We can't be speaking His name and living according to selfish desires Revelation 3:16, He's spewing the lukewarm into the fire It's easy to claim that were Christians, confessing His name as Jesus the Christ But how is your heart conditioned, indifferent? won't even give up your life You say you believe but the context in Greek defines the word, to committ And here we are giving up nothing, masking ourselves as truly legit Confess or professing His name acknowledging He is Lord above all Includes dependance on Him for we cannot stand, without Jesus we'll fall It's more than saying the words, its backing it up and walking the walk But the Scripture's been watered so down, we think we are saved by merely our talk

J. Han:

Wow I thought that going to church was enough for me.
But now I see my wrongs, I need deeper intimacy.
I need to commit, by giving my all to my savior Christ.
I lay my own desires down, Lord I give You my life.
Track Name: Abandon (feat. Shine)
Forsaking all I know for your cause
Giving up all I want for you
Leaving my world behind me
To follow your words, your cross, your dreams

Casting my fears aside me
Looking to the cross ahead
Breaking down the idols in me
Replacing them with You instead

I give myself to You
for its time to abandon things I once knew
And everything I dearly held onto
Jesus your my treasure my one true King
your the only reason my heart will sing
Oh Lord, Oh Lord, Be my everything

Casting my fears aside me
Looking to the cross ahead
Breaking down the idols in me
Replacing them with You instead

I give myself to You
For its time to abandon things I once knew
And everything I dearly held onto
Jesus Your my treasure my one true King
Your the only reason my heart will sing
Oh Lord, Oh Lord, Be my everything

Be my everything, Oh Lord, Oh Lord, Be my everything
Be my everything, Oh Lord, Oh Lord, Be my everything
