Track Name: We Stand
We Stand

We’ve all been hurt.
And yes we feel confused
So much is wrong
But is there
anything we can do?

Where is the hope?
When there’s so much pain
So much is broken
Can it be made whole
Again?

We can just stay in this place
Or go our separate ways.
We can just stay in this place
Or go.
Or we can stand
We can stand
together with love.

We stand, we stand
We’re gonna stand with love
We’re gonna stand with love
We stand, we stand
We’re gonna stand with love
We’re gonna stand with love

Let us not sit in judgment,
Or only bow in prayer
Let us not leave in anger,
Or stay in our despair.
But by the grace of God,
Let us stand together with love.
Track Name: Holy Ground (demo)
Holy Ground

Verse 1
Sometimes we don’t know why
But we’re looking for something more
Even when we’ve closed our eyes
Looking for what we cannot hold
Cannot fully know.

For all that’s holy.
Holy.

Chorus:
Your holiness is all around
Even when faith can’t be found
We find ourselves on holy ground…
holy ground.

Verse 2
Right now in our groans and sighs
Looking for what can heal our hearts
It is a mystery why
You’re always where the hurting are
Right here where we are

It’s all that’s holy.
Holy.

Bridge:
Where we are
You are there
Nothing can
separate
us from your love

When we look
We will find
Nothing can
separate
us from your love

It's all that’s holy.
Holy holy.
Track Name: Only Grace (demo)
Lyrics:
Things are broken here

Things are broken here.
Things are shared
Things are carried here
Hearts bow in prayer

It is grace, only grace
That brings us here
Holds us all together here.
All together here.


Things are dying here
Things are torn
Things are growing here
And burdens borne.

It is grace, only grace
That brings us here
Weaves us all together here
All together here.


Amazing grace, hear the sound
Here is where hope can be found.

Track Name: Lovely Needy People - Live at LaSalle Street Church
For All Us Lovely Needy People

Verse 1
You prisoners in your cells
All you in private hells
Kyrie Eleison

All you hungry and ignored
Who thirst for something more
Kyrie Eleison

You who feel so lost but are afraid of being found
You who are in chains but are afraid to live unbound
Kyrie Eleison, Kyrie Eleison

Chorus

For all us lovely, needy people
living in this world, spinning round and round
round and round,
For all us lovely, broken people
Living in this world, spinning round and round,
round and round.
Lord have mercy, Christ have mercy.
Kyrie Eleison, Kyrie Eleison


Verse 2
Oh you children ripped and torn
Battered, bruised and worn
Kyrie Eleison
All who look hate in the face
And locked in hate’s embrace
Kyrie Eleison

You who’ve given up and can’t see anywhere but down
You who’ve lost all hope and think it’s nowhere to be found
Kyrie Eleison, Kyrie Eleison

Chorus

For all us lovely, needy people
living in this world, spinning round and round
round and round.
For all us lovely, broken people
Living in this world, spinning round and round
round and round.
Lord have mercy, Christ have mercy.
Kyrie Eleison, Kyrie Eleison


Bridge
There is mercy enough
There is grace enough
There is love enough
For all of us
