Track Name: Glorify
A voice arose, a voice arose
And it sounded like thunder and it pounded like thunder
It sounded like thunder and it pounded like thunder

It said “I Glorify It” and again “I Glorify It”
It said “I Glorify It” and again “I Glorify It”
Track Name: Celebration Song
Triumphant leaves of green falling on the ground
And a song of jubilee
Hosanna enters in without a sound
The crowd is shoutin’ victory!

Hail to the one that comes to save us
The mighty conqueror is here
Is this the one my father spoke of?
The one that comes to save us all?

Jerusalem, my heart cries for you,
Jerusalem, I must die for you
Jerusalem, my heart cries for you,
Jerusalem, it’s too late to love me now….

They laid their coats upon the colt for him
They cut their fronds with workman’s blades
As revolution stirs, and worlds upend
O daughter, do not be afraid

Hail to the one that comes to save us
The mighty conqueror is here,
Is this the one my father spoke of?
The one that comes to save us all?

Jerusalem, my heart cries for you,
Jerusalem, it’s too late to love me now
Jerusalem, I must die for you…
Track Name: Land of Upheaval
I’ve seen crowds in need of healing
Leave their lives to follow you
Travel hills and down through ceilings
Just to grasp or ask of you

I’ve seen demons, wracked and reeling
Fall away to hide from you
Withered limbs, inert, unfeeling,
Bend and move because of you

There’s a fire slowly growing
From the Father’s hand to you
There’s a holy wind that’s blowing
There’s a kingdom breaking through

Bartemeus, on the roadside,
Opened his eyes to look at you
O’ Zacheus, in the tree line
Hit the ground to sit with you

There’s a fire slowly growing
From the Father’s hand to you
There’s a holy wind that’s blowing
There’s a kingdom breaking through

I think the revolution’s you
I think the revolution’s you
I think the revolution’s you
I think the revolution’s you
I think the revolution’s you
I think the revolution’s you
Track Name: Mary
Mary my dear, come over here, tell me is it true what they say?
Mary my dear, let go of your fear, bring your gift to me I pray
Let your heart rest with mine, I don’t have much time,
break your fragrance free, my dear

Let your tears fall on me, brush your hair on my feet,
Let your alabaster tears fall on me, fall on me

Overflow, overflow and go where you go,
Let this fragrance fill the air with love divine, love divine

Fill the air, fill the air, let your heart beat with mine,
Let this fragrance fill the air with love divine, love divine

Mary my dear, bring yourself near, let your heart beat with mine, my dear

Overflow, overflow and go where you go,
Let the earth overflow, with love divine, with love divine
Track Name: A Brother Falls
You gave me a heart of gold
and let ol’ Satan in my soul
Now I’m gonna take what I can get

Yeah I’m gonna take what I can get
And you’d better rest assured
There won’t be no regrets
Takin’ you down, for thirty pieces of silver

Why’d it have to be this way?
Why’d I Have to bear the name
Of Judas Iscariot

Yeah I’m gonna take what I can get
And you’d better rest assured
There won’t be no regrets
Takin’ you down, for thirty pieces of silver

Yeah I’m gonna take what I can get
I’m Judas Iscariot
There won’t be no regrets
Takin’ you down, for thirty pieces of silver

Why’d it have to be this way?
Why’d I have to bear the name of Judas Iscariot?
Track Name: Revolutionary Heart
Peter: Why can’t I go with you Lord?
I can fight, I’m not afraid to die,
Oh Lord, I’m ready now,
Prison walls, and death won’t hold me down

Jesus: Little child, I prayed for you,
Little stone, your heart can’t hold the
Things I know, you soon shall see,
The rooster crows, and you will run from me

Peter: Lord I’m strong,
Don’t say these things
I’ve got the faith, I’ve
Got the keys, your wrong

Jesus: You will sleep and I will cry
You will fight, but I must die; this
Cup won’t pass, you will see,
I’m not weak its
Strength that hold me back

Peter: Why can’t I go with you Lord?
I will fight, lay down my life, oh…

Jesus: Little child, you soon shall see,
The rooster crows, you run from me, oh…
Track Name: Days to Come
The room was prepared; the friends gathered there
They all took their chairs as the sky turned red

He spoke of a vine and he broke of the bread
They drank of the wine; unto them He said

The wine is my blood, my body is the bread
They ate and were fed as the sun went down

Secret things stirred in the heart of his friend
His eyes looked at him; the betrayer frowned

He spoke of the day and the price he would pay
They would take him away in the bitter night

They could not foresee all that would come to be
They would tremble, they would flee, while the Master died

They were quiet and still while the room slowly filled
With shadows that crept from the dying sun

They were all unaware, as they rose from their chairs
And they walked down the stairs, of the days to come
Track Name: Vale of Sorrow
The moon is low tonight
The city fires dim and die
In the garden’s fading light
Alone, the master weighs his life

It’s been a long, long road
Across raging seas and fields of stone
He had never felt alone
Among the poor and broken ones

But here, as darkness creeps
And his closest friends are fast asleep
A chasm, vast and deep,
Fills his soul with agony

“Could this cup pass from me?
Could this cup pass from me?
Not my will but Your’s be done
“Not my will but Your’s be done”
Track Name: Soldiers
When the soldiers came with weapons in their hands
To take away with swords the one they called the Son of Man

A kiss was laid upon his face and he was known
As darkness reigned, the cup remained, he’d drink it all and then some

And their eyes were laid upon him
Who had walked and prayed beside them
Who had raised the dead and dying
Whose face betrayed the truth that he was afraid

A sword was drawn in passion
To rise up and protect him
To bring his kingdom to them
But he calmed the sword and they took him away

And as shadows filled the garden
The brothers, brokenhearted,
In emptiness, departed
Though his words were heard, they had yet to be known

They did not understand it
The tree, the sea, the branches
The hill to come, the mansions
The sacrifice, the bitter seed to sow
Track Name: When We Came to Town
When we came to town, I didn’t know
Where you were bound to go

We were all just boys when we left our homes
To make some noise and roam

We laughed around fires; broke bread with the poor
until the hours expired and wore

You commanded the wind; spoke for the exiled
To lead us to Him reconciled

But your words, they could sting; they would always surprise
In the air they would ring and arise

Tell me what did it matter, the sowers and seeds,
When your kingdom is scattered like leaves

When we came to town, I didn’t know
Where you were bound to go
Track Name: O' Thou Eternal Victim Slain
He stood all alone…and quiet
Far away from the waves and the sea
As the crowd grew loud, and the riot set
He didn’t have much to say anymore it seemed

And where the perfume ran through his hair
And where the light of the transfiguration had glowed
A crown of ridicule would soon sit there
A quiet stream of blood would flow

And as he walked through the streets with his wounds undressed
He felt the weight of the beam leave his hands
Some were shouting with joy, some beat their breasts
Pallid shadows were cast on the land

And when the hour had come, and his strength had left
At the place of the skull, he stood still
They put his hands to the wood, and with eyes bereft
He felt the flow of his blood, as it spilled

And as they lifted him…battered and naked…He sighed

The sky was calm as he…quoted the psalms…Eloi

Lo’ a darkness, a terrible darkness…arrived

And as the horn from the Temple sounded, he died
Track Name: How Love Did Win
In the grave they laid him down, the Lamb of God was slain

In shame, he wore their crown, and he died, alone, in pain
Their hearts were dark with sorrow, thinking that he would not wake,
Would there still be hope for tomorrow, had the Master died in vain?

As the green blade rises from the buried grain
In the field of man, soiled by sin,
The son of God, did rise again,
Over death, His love, did win
Rise to Glory, Rise to Heaven, Rise only Son,
Words of the Holy Father, Rise, Rise, Rise, my son

Crowned with glory and honor, you sit upon the throne,
At the right hand of the father, for my sin you bore alone
