Raise A Hallelujah
Highlands (Song Of Ascent)
Broken Vessels
See A Victory

Raise A Hallelujah

Verse 1

I raise a hallelujah in the presence of my enemies
I raise a hallelujah louder than the unbelief
I raise a hallelujah my weapon is a melody
I raise a hallelujah Heaven comes to fight for me


I’m gonna sing in the middle of the storm
Louder and louder you’re gonna hear my praises roar
Up from the ashes hope will arise
Death is defeated the King is alive

Verse 2

I raise a hallelujah with everything inside of me
I raise a hallelujah I will watch the darkness flee
I raise a hallelujah in the middle of the mystery
I raise a hallelujah fear you lost your hold on me


Sing a little louder (Sing a little louder)
Sing a little louder (Sing a little louder)
Sing a little louder (Sing a little louder)
Sing a little louder (Sing a little louder)

Sing a little louder in the presence of my enemies
Sing a little louder louder than the unbelief
Sing a little louder my weapon is a melody
Sing a little louder Heaven comes to fight for me

Sing a little louder


I raise a hallelujah

Highlands (Song Of Ascent)

Verse 1

O how high would I climb mountains
If the mountains were where You hide
O how far I’d scale the valleys
If You graced the other side

Verse 2

O how long have I chased rivers
From lowly seas to where they rise
Against the rush of grace descending
From the source of its supply


‘Cause in the highlands and the heartache
You’re neither more or less inclined
I would search and stop at nothing
You’re just not that hard to find


Oh (So) I will praise You on the mountain
(And) I will praise You
When the mountain’s in my way
You’re the summit where my feet are
So I will praise You in the valleys all the same
No less God within the shadows
No less faithful when the night leads me astray
(‘Cause) You’re the heaven where my heart is
In the highlands and the heartache all the same


Whoa (whoa)

Verse 3

O how far beneath Your glory
Does Your kindness extend the path
From where Your feet rest on the sunrise
To where You sweep the sinner’s past

Verse 4

And O how fast would You come running
If just to shadow me through the night
Trace my steps through all my failure
And walk me out the other side


For who could dare ascend that mountain
That valleyed hill called Calvary
But for the One I call Good Shepherd
Who like a lamb was slain for me


Whatever I walk through
Wherever I am
Your Name can move mountains
Wherever I stand
And if ever I walk through
The valley of death
I’ll sing through the shadows
My song of ascent


My song of ascent
Whoa whoa
My song of ascent
Whoa whoa


From the gravest of all valleys
Come the pastures we call grace
A mighty river flowing upwards
From a deep but empty grave

(back to top)

Broken Vessels

Verse 1

All these pieces
Broken and scattered
In mercy gathered
Mended and whole
Empty handed
But not forsaken
I’ve been set free
I’ve been set free


Amazing grace
How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me
Oh I once was lost
But now I am found
Was blind but now I see


Oh I can see You now
Oh I can see the love in Your eyes
Laying Yourself down
Raising up the broken to life

Verse 2

You take our failure
You take our weakness
You set Your treasure
In jars of clay
So take this heart Lord
I’ll be Your vessel
The world to see Your life in me

(back to top)

See A Victory

Verse 1

The weapon may be formed but it won’t prosper
When the darkness falls it won’t prevail
‘Cause the God I serve knows only how to triumph
My God will never fail
My God will never fail


I’m gonna see a victory
I’m gonna see a victory
For the battle belongs to You Lord
I’m gonna see a victory
I’m gonna see a victory
For the battle belongs to You Lord

Verse 2

There is power in the mighty name of Jesus
Every war He wages He will win
I’m not backing down from any giant
I know how this story ends
Yes I know how this story ends


You take what the enemy meant for evil
And You turn it for good
You turn it for good
