Written by Orlando Palmer, Ben Hardesty

VERSE 1
Oh, I've got the joy of the Lord down in my soul, down in my soul

The Kingdom Is Yours
Written by Brittney Spencer, Micah Massey, Dee Wilson, Aaron Keyes

VERSE 1
Blessed are the ones who do not bury
All the broken pieces of their heart
Blessed are the tears of all the weary
Pouring like a sky of falling stars
Blessed are wounded ones in mourning
Brave enough to show the Lord their scars
Blessed are the hurts that are not hidden
Open to the healing touch of God

CHORUS
The kingdom is yours, the kingdom is yours
Hold on a little more, this is not the end
Hope is in the Lord, keep your eyes on him

VERSE 2
Blessed are the ones who walk in kindness
Even in the face of great abuse
Blessed are the deeds that go unnoticed
Serving with unguarded gratitude
Blessed are the ones who fight for justice
Longing for the coming day of peace
Blessed is the soul that thirsts for righteousness
Welcoming the last, the lost, the least

VERSE 3
Blessed are the ones who suffer violence
And still have strength to love their enemies
Blessed is the faith of those who persevere
Though they fall, they'll never know defeat


10.15pm Session Justice Track Session

Rose Petals
Written by Dee Wilson

VERSE 1
The blood of my brother
Was spilled on the street
He was the rose that grew out of the concrete
The same ground where his body lay
Like rose petals on an stony grave
Why do we fear each other
From the lies of yesterday
I'll never know

CHORUS
But look at all these roses
With petals on the ground
They called this one Mike Brown
Look at all these roses
With petals on the ground
They called this one Trayvon Martin
Look at all these roses
With petals on the ground
They called this one Tyshawn Lee
Look at all these roses
With petals on the ground
That's far too many for me

VERSE 2
The tears of a mother
Are spilled on his grave
She knows a cost the whole world cannot repay
When she should've known our sympathy
All we told her is that her baby was guilty
Do we even have compassion
Do we even want to see
I'll never know 

CHORUS 2
But look at all these roses
With their petals on the ground
They call this one Freddie Gray
Look at all these roses
With petals on the ground
They call this one Eric Garner
Look all these roses
With petals on the ground
They call this one Sandra Bland
Look at all these roses
With petals on the ground
Every woman, every man

BRIDGE
Sometimes wonder
If you were more than a number
Would we see how beautiful and special and precious you were
Somebody told me
If only, if only
You could better decide
You would still be alive

CHORUS 3
But look at all these roses
With petals on the ground
Like the ones from Sandy Hook
Look at all these roses
With petals on the ground
They might change the story
In our history books
So while we can let's
Look at all these roses
Look at all these roses
Look at all these roses
With petals on the ground
Look at all these roses
Look at all these roses
Look at all these roses
With petals on the ground
I'm asking you to
Look at all these roses
Say a pray for all these roses
Shout and march for all these roses
With petals on the ground
Look at all these roses
Look at all these roses
Look at all these roses
With petals on the ground

VERSE 3
The blood of my brother
Was spilled on the street
He was the rose
That grew out of the concrete


He Has Time
Written by Brittney Spencer, Jamie MacDonald, Ben Hardesty, Orlando Palmer, Art Hooker

VERSE 1
Something’s been stolen
Under the weight of the curse you’ve been broken
You’re not what happened
You’re more than the shame you were recklessly given

PRE-CHORUS 1
You silently scream through the tears you can’t keep from falling
Wishing they poured out enough to breakthrough the hurting

CHORUS
Jesus runs
After the broken ones
Weeping with those who weep
Crowns them with purity
And years of shame
Shatter in Jesus name 

VERSE 2
You can’t shake the feeling
He’s not in a rush he has time for your healing
Lean on his shoulder
It’s never too late and, your story’s not over 

PRE-CHORUS 2
You wish you could go back in time rewrite your own ending
Then you find the faith to believe it’s just the beginning

BRIDGE
He is here
He has time
To take what’s wrong
And make it right


God Will Heal Our Wounds
Written by Aaron Strumpel, Dee Wilson, Will Reagan

VERSE 1
We want to seek you in our own way
Fasting or singing, we’ll do anything to feel safe
You’re telling us that it’s not ok
You don’t need another song
You don’t need our empty praise
(You’re looking for justice, not just empty praise)

CHORUS
If we stop loving on our own terms
God will heal our wounds, God will heal our wounds
If we stop loving on our own terms
Grace will lead us home
Grace will lead us home

VERSE 2
We want the blessing of the God we made
The glory he promised, but none of the price that he paid
But you’re leading us down a different way
To seek less for ourselves, to pour out every day

BRIDGE
Home, home, home, home where the fasting that you seek
Is breaking chains, breaking free
Home, home, home, home where the songs that we sing
Move the ground underneath
Home, home, home, home where the worship that you seek
Feeds the hungry the ones in need
Home, home, home, home where love that we seek
Is planting gardens fixing streets
Is building bridges planting trees
Is digging wells for all to drink
Is finding light for us to see
Is building trust between you and me
Is building strength and family

How Much Longer
Written by Art Hooker, Courtney Orlando, Ben Hardesty

VERSE 1
In the silence, tell me, can you hear
The voices calling out, of the disappeared?
Broken spirits, dormant dreams
How much longer will justice sleep?

PRE CHORUS
When a lawless heart is the voice we’re hearing
We need freedom

CHORUS
How much longer 'til we sing a new song?
How much longer 'til we sing a new song?

VERSE 2
Hearts of saints and sinners, too
Both have walked away from the destitute
Call them back to sing as one
A song of freedom now, a song to overcome 

BRIDGE
Come on brother, lay your weapons down
Where the river of justice rolls and all oppression drowns
It flows with life, love and truth
May the old be washed away and hearts be made anew
