The week has been long You’re all stressed out Life has been bringin’ you down But there’s a place you can go Where you’ll feel just right, Surrounded by joyful sounds Common is the love we share We’re surrounded by those who care CHORUS: It’s a special occasion Coming together as the Family of God It’s a special occasion Fellowshipping with the Lord You’re with your friends And your family You’re loved by all in sight You sing to the Lord And you pray to the Lord And he makes you feel just right.

CHORUS: I’m thinkin’ about the words to say To all of my friends who’ve gone astray I know that I need to find a way To reach my friends today So I’m thinkin’ about the words to say I hope that I’m an influence To some lost soul today And I hope that they can See the Lord in me And I hope that I can make a difference In the lives of my friends And show them what a friend The Lord can be CHORUS I know I’m not the best at showing Christ in my life But I hope that I can make A change somehow ‘cause I know a lot of people who need Jesus in their lives And I need to show him To them now CHORUS 2x

You stand with open arms Waiting for me to come to you And give you my all I see you standing there Stretching a loving hand To catch me when I fall I want to live this life for you And give you my heart and soul You have created this life for me And your blood has made it whole CHORUS: You came to give us life To share with us your power (You control my life) O Lord, take this life Only you can make me whole You can direct my steps And you can guide me through life To a home up in Heaven above And you can show me how To take this life and live it According to your love I want to live this life for you And give you my heart and soul You have created this life for me And your blood has made it whole CHORUS 2x Only you can make me whole

Find A Way 02:46
I ask the Lord to have mercy on me And to ease my pain I ask the Lord to set me free And to stop my strain Through my life I’ve got trials Trials so severe I can only depend on my Lord To save me CHORUS: I’ve got to find a way To live my life according to his word I must find a way To keep my faith in the Lord If I walk in the light as He is in the light I will see my God I will see him in the lives of his children here And in the paths they trod I want to be more like him Every single day I want the Lord to be seen in me In every way CHORUS 2x REPEAT FIRST VERSE

Without Love 03:35
We live in a world where violence Seems like an answer to everything Why do we always fuss and fight When things don’t go our way If we could look much deeper We’d see that love is what we need Love is the answer. Love is the way Love is the key… CHORUS: Without love there is no hope And without hope there is no joy To answer all the problems in our hearts Without joy there is no peace And without peace there is no love It’s a never ending cycle without love Love is patient, love is kind It’s easily understood How could we not have a part in something so simple, so good? If we could look much deeper We’d see that love is what we need Love is the answer. Love is the way Love is the key… CHORUS If we could look much deeper We’d see that love is what we need Love is the answer. Love is the way Love is the key… CHORUS
6.
Let’s get excited about Jesus Let’s start praising the Lord Let’s exalt the Spirit And read from his word It’s an exciting time now That we can spend in fellowship It’s a time for singing A song of praise falls on our lips Chorus: So praise the Lord! He’s the Lord of my life! Let’s get excited about family The family of God Exalting others in love Encouraging all It’s a time of happiness And it’s a time of joy It’s a source of strength for Every man, woman, girl and boy CHORUS We’re praising Jesus Christ God’s only son We’re gonna praise his holy name Until our lives are done We’re gonna live for him And glorify his name Because loving us Is why he came CHORUS
7.
Holy Hands 04:28
As we go forth into battle As we’re doing his precious will Though the winds and waves are howling We know our Lord is with us still We’re looking at the man now We’re following the plan He’s giving us the victory As we’re lifting our holy hands CHORUS: Holy hands to the Father Holy hands to the Son Holy hands to the Father Lifting holy hands to the Son We’re looking for the enemy We’re gonna look him in the eyes No need for him to hide now No need for a disguise We’re gonna bring him down now The Lord will let us stand He’s giving us the victory As we’re lifting our holy hands CHORUS As the leaves change color As comes the passing of time The war then gets greater It’s not just in our minds Oh the weapons we’ll collect As we turn our ship toward home And the scene that’s set towards judgment Sends a chill right to your bones As we stand before the throne now With his breath upon our cheek Before his feet we will bow As his righteousness we seek The crown is on our head And kingdoms fill the land Looking back on the road we tread As we’re lifting our holy hands CHORUS OUT
8.
Life- it left you long ago when you left your God and walked away. But love- it still flows forth from those with the Lord who decided to stay. You feel like its too late to turn around and come running back to the one who still loves you. But its never too late to go back to the one who created love and forgiveness, too. Chorus: How can you live without loving the Lord? And how can you turn, and not answer the door to your heart? When it seems you don't know what to do, don't forget, he still loves you. The Lord- he's still reaching out to bring you home where you belong. But you- you're the only one who can come back from where your life has gone. The Lord still waits with patience, reaching out to you (you know that he still cares). All you have to do is take the hand of the Lord who's always there. Chorus Bridge: You may be sinking deep in a sea of sin with no hope in sight. But the lifeline to you is the love of the Lord He'll make it all right. Chorus
9.
How Great 02:21
CHORUS: O how great is my reward That I’ll receive from Christ on high How magnificent is your name I will praise it ‘til I die REPEAT CHORUS How I long to be with my Lord And stand by his side Now I see that Heaven’s gates Are standing open wide CHORUS O I know that he will help me out And show me all his love And I’ll one day be with my Lord In Heaven above CHORUS OUT
10.
Leaning on the Lord Leaning on his arms Leaning on the Lord Leaning on his arms Leaning on the Lord Leaning on his arms Let him carry all your burdens Soon they will be gone Leaning on the Lord Leaning on his arms REPEAT 2x
11.
We shall assemble on the mountain We shall assemble at the throne With humble hearts into his presence We bring an offering of song Glory and honor and dominion Unto the Lamb, unto the King Oh hallelujah, hallelujah We sing the song of the redeemed REPEAT We sing the song of the redeemed
12.
Living in this world today, we can lose our faith. We lose our confidence in others that we meet. We find ourselves doubting what others are saying and we have no idea who we can trust. But if we take a look at the word, and let God be the one who's heard, let him take control and believe what we're told by him...we'll hear the words. Chorus: The words of truth from the Lord above. We know the word of God is nothing but the truth. The words of truth from the God of love. And we'll be with him if we're walking in the truth. If we open up the Bible and take a good look we'll find the answers that we need to make it through life. What's good? What's bad? How can I handle my problems? The plan to our lives can be found there. When I think about everyday life with the causes of problems and strife, it's easy to see the word's there for me to trust... we'll hear the words. Chorus Bridge: Have the courage to believe the truth and the faith to trust in the living God. Live the words you've heard from your youth. You have got to be strong it's with him that you belong. If you'll only be true, he'll be there for you, just trust... Chorus
13.
Day by Day 02:12
Day by Day You reveal your love to me Cradled in your arms, I am A precious lamb A diamond in your eyes REPEAT 2x I am a precious A precious lamb A diamond in your eyes Cradled in your arms, I am A precious lamb A diamond in your eyes
14.
Miles Away 04:37
We feel that he asks too much of us He isn’t real… it’s all just a story A man by the name of Jesus Who can call down heaven’s glory But it’s real… he was sent to die for us God’s will, fulfilled in all it’s glory This plan of a love victorious By this man: pure love dying for me CHORUS: His love is not miles away His love is here today Shown through the light that shines above His everlasting blind love is not Miles away It’s in my heart to stay A love that’s by my side A love that cannot hide away from me If he could count the stars above Did he know my heart had shattered? Because I’ve heard so much about his love Of his word, and how the people gathered To hear and receive what he would teach It becomes so clear, so I lift my heart to reach His love, full of mercy and his grace Took me above all my sins and now I’m saved BRIDGE: Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Nothing is gonna separate me from my God Not troubled times, persecution, famine or nakedness Can keep him away from me He’ll never leave me lonely CHORUS 2x
15.
Chorus: We will only suffer for a little while in this world so dark and cold Yes, we will only be here a little while 'til the Father calls us home. The God of all grace who called you to his glory will perfect, confirm, strengthen, and establish you. When your work on earth is done, he will exalt you so humble yourself under his mighty hand. Chorus The devil prowls about like a roaring lion, and he's looking for someone to devour. Stand firm in your faith and you will resist him The Lord will see you through. He cares for you. Chorus
16.
Chorus: The Lord Reigns The Lord reigns, he is clothed with majesty The Lord has clothed himself with strength The Lord reigns, he is clothed with majesty He will not be moved. The floods have lifted up their voice The floods have lifted up, O Lord The floods have lifted up their waves The floods have lifted up, O Lord More than the sounds of many waters And the mighty breakers of the sea The Lord on high is mighty Chorus Repeat Verse Chorus 2x
17.
Thorns on his head, spear in his side Yet it was a heartache that made him cry He gave his life so that you would understand Is there any way you could say no to this man? If Christ himself were standing here Face full of glory and eyes full of tears If he held out his arms and his nail-printed hands Is there any way you could say no to this man? CHORUS: How could you look in his tear-stained eyes knowing it’s you he’s thinking of? Would you tell him you’re not ready to give him your life? Would you say you don’t think you need his love? Jesus is here with his arms open wide You can see him with your heart if you stop looking with your eyes He’s left it up to you. He’s done all he can Is there any way you could say no to this man? CHORUS Thorns on his head, your life in his hands Is there any way you could say no to this man? Is there any way you could say no to this man?
18.
Lamb of God 03:47
Your only son, no sin to hide But you have sent him from your side To walk upon this guilty sod And to become the Lamb of God CHORUS: Oh Lamb of God, sweet Lamb of God I love the Holy Lamb of God Oh wash me in his precious blood My Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God Your gift of love they crucified They laughed and scorned him as he died The humble king they named a fraud And sacrificed the Lamb of God CHORUS I was so lost. I should have died But you have brought me to your side To be led by your staff and rod And to be called a Lamb of God CHORUS
19.
Life- it left you long ago when you left your God and walked away. But love- it still flows forth from those with the Lord who decided to stay. You feel like its too late to turn around and come running back to the one who still loves you. But its never too late to go back to the one who created love and forgiveness, too. Chorus: How can you live without loving the Lord? And how can you turn, and not answer the door to your heart? When it seems you don't know what to do, don't forget, he still loves you.

Chorus Bridge: You may be sinking deep in a sea of sin with no hope in sight. But the lifeline to you is the love of the Lord He'll make it all right. Chorus
20.
I Can't Wait 04:32
Every time I feel down and lonely and things aren't going my way, I wonder if life's worth living at all. I look at my situation and it seems like there's no way out. Then I have to look to the maker of it all. You know that life can be pretty rough sometimes but with him there, everything can be fine. I know that... Chorus: Life on earth won't last forever, but life in heaven will. Life as we know it will soon pass away I can't wait until that great day. The problems that develop can really pull me down and I find it hard to get a second wind. But when my life here is over and my work on this earth is done, then a life of joy never ending will begin. You know that life can be pretty rough sometimes, but with him there, you know everything's gonna be alright. Chorus 3x
21.
Oh Lord, make me a child impassioned for your ways a trust that never strays, make me a child. Aglow with your light, a smile to your sight. Make me a child in your arms. Oh Lord, make me child with love in a tender heart. renew my simple heart, make me a child. From morning's light to evening's night, make me a child in your arms. Repeat Verse 1

about

From Eric:

"Before I was a solo artist, I had the blessing of being a part of a couple of different Christian a cappella groups. The first was a quartet called Ariel, which was together for almost 5 years and produced 2 albums. The other, more successful group, was called Q.

"'The Songs Go On...' is a 'digital box set' comprising the complete works of Q. This digital download features songs from both of Q's studio albums, as well as never before released live tracks, alternate versions, B-Sides, and demo recordings."

Proceeds from the sale of this album (and individual tracks) will go to support Hope Inspired Ministries, a faith-based organization devoted to aiding the chronically unemployed (www.hopeinspiredministries.org).
