Caught By Surprise (Andrew’s Song)

 Verse 1        

Caught by surprise when the Light of the world,

Gave an invitation that day

To be a different kind of fisherman

His life would never be the same

He ran to his brother Simon,

“We have found the one called Christ.

Come follow me my brother

Come and lose to find your life!”

Chorus 1

This has been the story of my life.

Nothing else to me, has mattered

Everyday since that day has changed me.

And my whole world has shattered.

To God alone be glory

Verse 2

 “I don’t know where He is going,

But there’s something about this Man.

When He called my name I shuddered,

No fear, but peace in all I am!”

The best times of my life have been

When I have been so close

To Jesus, our Messiah;

And His precious Holy Ghost. (Repeat Chorus 1)

Verse 3

I said to Jesus one day

With thousands along the coast

They must be hungry, there’s a boy

With fishes and some loaves

But only a miracle could feed all them that day

Jesus smiled, broke the bread,

Looked to heaven to simply say,

Chorus 2

 “This has been the story of my life.

Nothing else to me, has mattered

I take this bread and break it for these children,

Bless this meal my Father

To You alone be glory!”

Bridge

Now I know that no matter what,

Happens to me

I’ll give my life to the One I love

Who gave His life for me

His hands are reaching out to you like

My brother and me

He’s waiting for your answer,

Let go, come to the King. Chorus 1

I Wonder If Bartholomew Knew

Verse 1

I wonder if Bartholomew knew that his life would lead like Jesus

I wonder if Bartholomew knew that he’d one day be ‘round glory

Faithful friend until the end, raised in Cana then heaven sent

I wonder if Bartholomew knew on earth how Jesus loved him

Verse 2

I wonder if Bartholomew believed in everything he had seen

I wonder if Bartholomew believed he’d one day be redeemed

Heavens opened, gates drawn wide, angels singing in the sky

I wonder if Bartholomew believed, as Jesus said it would be

Chorus

When Jesus found you, you didn’t believe it was true

But God pressed into your heart that day for He had chosen you

When Jesus found you, you questioned what others believed

But He never gave up, said you’ll share new wine e-ternal-ly.

Verse 3

I wonder what Bartholomew felt when he looked in Jesus eyes

I wonder what Bartholomew felt when he saw his friend and Lord die

Lost in wonder, then lost asunder believing the end was the end

Then by the sea of Galilee, his Lord appeared risen from the dead!

Chorus 2

When Jesus found you, you were fishing again by the sea

Your heart had been beaten by the death of your Lord, now had seemed a dream

Bridge

But as you looked up, you heard Peter scream

“My Lord and my God”, he dove right into the sea

He’s alive! He’s risen! God beat Calvary

My heart - it sings with great joy! How I love my King!   

Chorus 3

When Jesus found you did you choose to or not to believe?

He’s after your heart or do you think it’s all just a dream?

Lyrics

James Son of Alphaeus

Verse 1

It doesn’t matter that I’m not remembered

Or there’s not much written about me

For I lived my life as an arrow for God                                   

That His quiver many souls filled would be

Verse 2

The point of one’s life isn’t how we’re remembered

By friends, foes or fami-ly

In the end there’s only one voice that matters

And I’ll follow Him wherever He leads

Chorus

James son of Alphaeus I want to thank you

For teaching us how to live life

James son of Alphaeus, what was it like

To walk with our Lord Jesus Christ

Bridge

To be in the upper room with Christ

And join in meal and song

To see Him die and rise to life

It felt so good to belong

Sometimes I was too scared to share

I thought that I might fail

Jesus said, “I am the bread of life”

His love, the wind in my sail Repeat Chorus

Verse 3

If there’s one thing in life that I’d be remembered

This is what I’d want it to be

Not to us, O Lord, not to us, but to, Your name give glory

Ending

James son of Alphaeus I want to thank you

Lyrics

Silver Sails of Thaddaeus

Verse 1

There’s a ship out on the horizon

And it’s raised its silver sails

He carries the hope of salvation

It’s cargo, the tales he tells

Verse 2

For the one on board has a mission

Fore he left he counted the cost

Freely he gives what’s been given to him

He’s knocking on the doors of the lost

Chorus

Steadfast fast and true sails Thaddaeus

Even after his Lord’s been gone

Challenged by life’s seas, faith is the key

As he sails into a new dawn

Verse 3

Placing one foot in front of the other

Doing the next right thing

When he’d fall the Lord would pick him back up

Dust off the dirt and the dust and debris

Bridge

Keep on sailing Thaddaeus

The Kingdom of heaven is at hand

Everyday’s filled with miracles

Blessings from God all across this land

Verse 4

If you’ve heard about Jesus there’s a good chance

It’s because of men like this man

Who lashed himself to the Mast of Christ

And held his course to the end.

Verse 5

Oh be thankful for men like Thaddaeus

Without you may have never known

The love of the Lord and the love of the King

And never have called heaven home

Philip’s Charge

Verse 1

I never thought that I mattered that much

Never knew I’d even be noticed

But God’s love met me by the banks of the sea

And called me to land not the ocean

Verse 2

I’d never felt love like this before

When He spoke, was as if He knew me

From the day of my birth to now by this shore

It was His love that constantly drew me

Chorus 1

“Come follow” now Jesus said unto me

Drop your net or whatever that binds you

Come breathe the salt air that blows off the sea

And leave your old life behind you

Chorus 2

For I’ve charged you with purpose and a fire for your life

It’s mankind I’m after to save

Will you lay down your life as I did with mine

Take courage my child and be brave!

Verse 3

Come with me Nathaniel, we’ve found the One

The One who’s the Ancient of Days

Moses wrote in the books of Prophets and Law

Of this God who will show us the way!

Verse 4

His message of hope brings eternal life

Even me He’s willing to save

God wants to use us to declare His great love

Thru Jesus, the truth and the way! Repeat Chorus 1 & 2

Lyrics

James, Son of Zebedee

Verse 1

Head strong, plucked from the water by the Son of Man

Bold and brash, one son of thunder, called to walk the land

Transformed by the transfiguration of Jesus Christ

No longer led by darkness, but by the One true Light

Verse 2

James, son of Zebedee and brother to the one called John

Commissioned by the risen Christ to do the work of God

Just a simple fisherman changed by a life of grace

Will sit around the throne of God, see Him face to face

Chorus

As we lift our hands up high, we thank You for Your love

For this one disciple who said yes, when You called

As we raise our song on high, re-deemed by Your Cross

Pierced by sword give courage Lord, no matter what the cost

Verse 3

Called to spread the Gospel you learned from the Word of God

There when Jairus’ daughter, from the dead into Christ’s arms

Nite by nite led by the hand, of the very Son of God

Pushed thru the misery of the pain when (Jesus) Christ was gone

Verse 4

Your mother watched you walk with God, changed the heart of Salome

Those who believe in Jesus as the truth, He will light the way

James knew Christ was the only way, he gave his life so he could say

Believe in Jesus, follow God and you will never be the same…

And you’ll live with Him one day!

John Looks Back

Verse 1

Looking back at my own life and how it all began

To this lonely Isle of Patmos, revelation from the Son of Man

How do I begin to tell you what He did for me

Every library in this ancient world could not hold His history

Chorus

I saw the Son of God in glory

I saw Jesus with my own two eyes

Believe and you’re a part of redemptions story

And into hea-ven’s gates you’ll rise

Verse 2

So one by one they came to die, my friends round Galilee

Because He lived a sinless life, they’ve all gone home, set free

I remember James, my brother died, the first of His closest three

Peter next, then I was sent, to exile remembering (Repeat Chorus)

Verse 3

My name is John and God broke my heart, crying out upon that tree

“Look to Mary now and keep her safe. Take her home I’m trusting thee.

When He died I’d never seen the likes of what came around

The ground broke open, dead were raised, the whole world turned upside down!

Repeat Chorus

Matthew’s Party

Chorus

We’re gonna have a party! (Echo) For all my friends to see!

I’m following Jesus! To-day He noticed me!

Changed my life forever! Now I am tax free! (truly free)

Verse 1

My heart was hard and my eyes closed in, on what was important to me

I’ll never know what made Him take me in, so different than the men at sea

Verse 2

Money had my heart closed tight, nothing else mattered to me

I was climbing up flight by flight of what seemed right to me

Bridge

Then Jesus called me, a voice I’d never heard

I ran from my old life, and clung to His every word

Instead of keeping ledgers, I’d changed illegally

God saw me writing Gospels, He’d use to set men free! Repeat Chorus

Verse 3

Imagine God as the honored host, what would you expect to see

Kings and princes who mattered most, that’s not what came to be

Bridge 2

For Jesus calls the sinners, the lost and least of these

Upside down He shakes the world out of its sinful tree Repeat Chorus

Thomas’ Waltz

Verse 1

For years I felt so guilty because I doubted Christ

My friends had said He’d risen, I knew He’d paid a price

My grief was overwhelming, my anger deep inside

Comfort was my sorrow, holding fast the tide

Verse 2

Nothing more to be said, the days had grown so old

All hope was lost, my eyes were dim, my heart had grown so cold

Others said they saw Him, He was risen from the dead

In unbelief I shouted, “I saw Him die”, but then…

Chorus

Christ entered where I was hurting, He saw my wounds inside

“Believe and place your hands in these, my wounds for you I died.

It rose in me unspeakable, a joy from heaven sent

All guilt erased, my faith was full, in Jesus holy presence!

Verse 3

At one time I had asked Him, “Lord how do we know the way

To the place where You are going, please point the way.”

He looked at me and spoke with His amazing voice,

“I am the way, the truth, I will always be the light”.

Verse 4

“No one comes to my Father, except they come thru Me

I will die, the third day, I’ll truly set you free

But you must believe me, that I give my life

And follow as my little child, place faith in Me the Christ.

Repeat Chorus

Bridge

I learned from Jesus that day, it’s not how we begin

That we finish well, and place our hope that He died and rose again

That His love is never ending, yet He calls each one to die

To self that we one day appear as one holy perfect Bride

Repeat Chorus

Simon’s Request

Verse 1

Why was I chosen by God – I’m the most arrogant one

I’m all about ‘cause’ and enjoy being the boss

I was zealous and I was lost

Verse 2

Why was I following Christ – Was I caught in a zealous vice

Like a fish in a net, my soul’s captured by Him

Will this last or be soon finished

Chorus 1

Christ saw something within me, which needed to come alive

Christ saw much that was in me, that needed to be crucified

He saw the man I could be. He gave me purpose and a plan to be free

It wasn’t the plan I’d of picked for all man, but man wait til you see!

Verse 3

I was angry at Jesus when He wouldn’t strike out

I was waiting for justice to come be poured out

He spoke in riddles and rhymes seemed to me

Our cause was lost, our king died on that tree

Verse 4

Scared and confused we all gathered around

Clung to each other, our Hope in the ground

Then God appeared to us alive from the dead

Our faith set on fire and zealous again!  Repeat Chorus

Bridge

God has placed something in your own heart

To be used for His Kingdom, you’re set apart

It’s a special part He’s called you to play

What will you answer, He calls you today!

Chorus 2

Christ sees something within you, which needs to come alive

Christ sees much that’s in you that needs to be crucified

He sees the one you can be. He gives you purpose and a plan to be free

It wasn’t the plan I’d of picked for all man, but man wait til you see!

Peter’s Song

Verse 1

Lord where are You going? What am I to do?

Without You here beside me

The days are turning blue, without You.

Verse 2

You rose again like a fresh new wind and You appeared before us all.

Now You’re ascending, is this all ending? Are we alone after all, after all?

Pre-Chorus 1

I’m scared and lonely Jesus, don’t know what to tell our friends

I’m uninspired and oh so tired, I wish this feeling would just end

Chorus 1

Then suddenly the room was filled with a rushing wind

There were flames of fire filling God’s desire

And I knew You were with us again

Then I remembered what You said, about a gift to be received

Your beautiful Spirit descended and released

Our hearts for the purpose of serving You, risen Lord

Now I’m inspired and my heart’s on fire

With the Spirit of our living Lord, living Lord

Bridge

Lord I feel Your presence now and I rest in Your Spirit

I resign my heart to Your Third Part

Verse 3

Today I remembered just who is my King

Now by His power I can do anything

Anything for the kingdom anything for His glory

Verse 4

Let God’s Spirit set you on fire again, Go spread His news about Jesus Christ

To every stranger, family and friend. He gives His Spirit freely –

When we ask we will receive, so get down brothers and sisters

Get down on bended knee

Pre-Chorus 2

Now build Your Church upon this rock You call Peter!

Chorus 2

Whatever your name may be, You’re a rock for the man from Galilee

Will you go build His Church just like me?

Will you go build His Church just like me?

Ending

I was scared and lonely Jesus, ‘Till Your Spirit set me free!

Judas’ Lament

Verse 1

No one sensed evil within me

Most times neither did I

I sensed a great purpose for my life

But never to eternally die

Chorus 1

I was walking with Christ who proclaimed himself king

When he spoke it never seemed to make sense

Love those you hate, give all away

To know him, to know God, that’s the best

Verse 2

What about today and tomorrow

Does God care if we live or we die?

Thru oppression and hunger, mans hate for man

All he seems to do is look towards the sky

Chorus 2

I was walking with Christ who proclaimed himself king

But I couldn’t buy into it all

Roman rule was too strong and we’d waited so long

Could this king release us from their law?

Verse 3

It seemed so harmless an act to me

And the right thing to do at the time

They came to me and asked where he’d be

It wasn’t like it was a crime

Bridge

But now I stand before the Almighty

And Jesus the Christ at His side

I have no words for my defense

I wait to be sentenced to the fire

Verse 4

Perhaps if I’d known then what I do now

Things would have been different

I’d follow the Lord and lead others to Christ

Then I’d join them as one heaven sent

Chorus 3

I was walking with Christ who proclaimed himself King

Back then it never seemed to make sense

Love those you hate, give all away

To know Him, to know God, that’s what’s best!
