ALREADY THERE
Written by: Glaurys Ariass, Helsa Ariass, and EARTHA

Wherever you go, I will be there
Wherever you are, I’m already there
Whenever you call
Before you fall
Before you can ask,
Before your past
You were already in my plan

If you were to rest in a secret place
Where no one could find your hideaway
I’d be your night
Light for your day
In your solitude
I am with you
Before your journey began 

I’m already there whenever you call me
I’m there before you call me
I’m already there whenever you call me
I’m there before you call me

I am the IS who was to be
Among the oracle wise, they spoke of me
From age to age
In the stillness of time
The dark about me
No one can find
Because I have not disclosed it to man

I’m already there whenever you call me
I’m there before you call me
I’m already there whenever you call me
I’m there before you call me

BAD FREQUENCY
Written by: Glaurys Ariass, Helsa Ariass, and EARTHA

I miss (mix) your signs
You talk to me in double tongue
You tell me one thing
And follow with another one

I can’t rely on
Anything I understand
I keep on hearing
Frequencies in different bands  

Why should we create these vibes?
Talking past each other’s minds

Sometimes I say things
In hopes to amuse you
Distorted kilohertz
They instead confuse you 

You can’t depend on
Everything you hear or see
Because it’s wrapped in
Levels of bad frequency

Why should we create these vibes?
Talking past each other’s minds

Do you hear me now?
Do you get it now?
Should I say it loud?
What about now?

Maybe I can talk to you
And you can respond to me
I just hope we understand
Even through bad frequency

Maybe I can talk to you
And you can respond to me
I just hope we understand
Even through bad frequency

We’ve got, we’ve got, we’ve got bad frequency
We’ve got, we’ve got, we’ve got bad frequency
We’ve got, we’ve got, we’ve got bad frequency
We’ve got, we’ve got, we’ve got bad frequency 

Maybe I can talk to you
And you can respond to me
I just hope we understand
Even through bad frequency 

Maybe I can talk to you
And you can respond to me
I just hope we understand
Even through bad frequency

We’ve got, we’ve got, we’ve got bad frequency
We’ve got, we’ve got, we’ve got bad frequency
We’ve got, we’ve got, we’ve got bad frequency
We’ve got, we’ve got, we’ve got bad frequency

BETRAYER
Written by: Glaurys Ariass, Helsa Ariass, and EARTHA

They call you the betrayer
As if you’re the only one
But someone else knows what you did
Was what had to be done 

They say you were an evil man;
Your actions proved it true
Chosen for that dreadful role
That you were born to do

It would have been someone else
had it not been you

Probably would have done the same
If I had your shoes
I’d curse the day that I was born
A life I did not choose (did not choose)

How could you know that you would be
In this eternal plan
A tool to name in infamy
In war for soul of man

It would have been someone else
had it not been you

We curse your name with our last breath
The one to blame for the Lord’s death
Who loved a world, which he did frame
His honor replaced and reduced to shame

And if I had your lot and His fate were sealed
My run would seem eternal to Potter’s field
I could not bear the weight, I would agonize
And wonder how could I live this (dreadful) life

That someone could have been me. 
Dreadful life(Dreadful life) 
That someone could have been me  
Dreadful life
Could have been me had it not been you 

They call you the betrayer
As if you’re the only one
But someone else knows what you did
Was what had to be done

They say you were an evil man;
Your actions proved it true
Chosen for that dreadful role
That you were born to do

It would have been someone else
had it not been you

I probably would have done the same
If I had your shoes
I’d curse the day that I was born
A life I did not choose (choose)

How could you know that you would be
In this eternal plan
A tool to name in infamy
In war for soul of man 

It would have been someone else
had it not been you

It would have been someone else
had it not been you (Betrayer, Betrayer, Betrayer)
It would have been someone else
had it not been you (Betrayer, Betrayer, Betrayer)
It would have been me
had it not been you (Betrayer, Betrayer)

BOARDWALK
Written by: Glaurys Ariass, Helsa Ariass, and EARTHA

Lay a wooden path
Beneath the arches of my feet
Let it run above
The raging waters of the sea

I cover endless road
Whenever I take a short walk
Mark my tears along
The splintered boardwalk as they fall

There’s a place where I can go
Bearing everything I know
I send my hopes about as high
Under the cotton candy sky 

Meet me here alone
Where none can hear you comfort me
Over clash of stone
You weigh my voice a heavy plea

On wooden planks of coffee
Stroll along and make small talk
Strangers passing by
Keep my course on this boardwalk

You’ve been here for quite some time
Washed away by rising tide
Keep returning to these shores
Till I see you fade no more

Where birds fly free
Waters run deep
Take me to the boardwalk

Never to soon
To come meet you
Headed to the boardwalk

Watch the sun set
Right where we met
Take me to the boardwalk

Though time will show
Your weary road
I’ll be on the boardwalk

Really doesn’t matter who comes or goes
I’ll be here when no one shows
At the boardwalk; at the boardwalk

Wherever I go, you’ll be on my mind
Think about how we shared our time
At the boardwalk; at the boardwalk

Wherever I am, you will always be
Steady boardwalk beneath my feet
At the boardwalk; at the boardwalk

COLOR OF THE WIND
Written by: Glaurys Ariass, Helsa Ariass, and EARTHA

To many eyes, I may seem strange
To more or less, I am taboo
To very few, I may not change
I wonder how I look to you

Do you see the scars that are on my face?
What about the smile that isn’t straight
Can you tell my heart’s in a lonely place
In need of strength in its current state

Make me the color of the wind
Where eyes won’t see my many flaws again
Hide my hurts and where I’ve been
Then I won’t have to pretend

My words may be better received
If I become what they can’t see
Make my voice the sound of breeze
So they won’t know it comes from me

Do you think that I could be something else?
Imperceptible… and no one can tell
Catching falling hearts that my hands upheld
Cause my only place is for someone’s help

Make me the color of the wind
Where eyes won’t see my many flaws again
Hide my hurts and where I’ve been
Then I won’t have to pretend

I’ll meet the sun upon a flower
And see a perfect bloom
When I blend with a summer’s shower
A mended heart’s perfume 

I’ll see the moon
set on the waters
And cast a twilight glow
And the gleam of the stars will follow

HEARTS OF STONE
Written by: Glaurys Ariass, Helsa Ariass, and EARTHA

Notice the callous strong,
making his mark and so
Preys on the weakest one,
takes every path he knows
Rock beneath what’s shown
Is the man who’s undisclosed

Walking among the crowd,
blending with everyone
Befriending the man in need,
deprive him of everything  
He pretends to be
Co-ops your reality

Every time he sees you
He repeats the same
Confirms his state of grim
He confines his life to shame
Every time he sees you
He repeats the same
Confirms his state of grim
He confines his life to shame

Break up hearts of stone
Chip away at the pieces
Bring down the high places
Break up hearts of stone
Chip away at the pieces
Bring down the high places

Reject anyone who comes
with lie on the tip of tongue
Speaking the things untrue;
ways to distort your view
Hold your position,
You have every reason to

Beware of the selfish who
alters his way with you
Looks for someone to fool,
deception’s his favorite tool
He will never show
That his heart is made of stone

Every time he sees you
He repeats the same
Confirms his state of grim
He confines his life to shame
Every time he sees you
He repeats the same
Confirms his state of grim
He confines his life to shame

Break up hearts of stone
Chip away at the pieces
Bring down the high places
Break up hearts of stone
Chip away at the pieces
Bring down the high places

I WANNA COME HOME
Written by: Glaurys Ariass, Helsa Ariass, and EARTHA

It was abrupt,
I remember the day clearly
Dropped my head,
Walked until nothing I knew was near me
Forged ahead to make a new way
Looking to fill a void, no reason to stay

Been here a while,
waiting my heart’s mending
To reflect, a life that
I’ve come to regret and yet
What I thought wasn’t right is the love that I
Never thought would be mine

Unresolved,
left some loose ends behind me
Thought I knew,
some things I just accepted blindly
Need to go back, miss what we had
Marking our days ahead, so many plans

I’ve come to find,
made a mistake in leaving
You alone,
please show me a way to return back home

Where my heart confides and my secrets lie
Revealed in your eyes

Where can I find you to stand beside you?
Wonder how that would be
And if when I call you fail to answer
What’s to become of me?

How do I get back to you?
Which road would lead to the truth?
Show me how to get back to you
Show me how to get back to you
Show me how to get back to you
Tell me what I need to do (anticipating)

Gotta find my way
I just wanna come home
I’ve been gone too long
I just wanna come home

Where can I find you to stand beside you?
Wonder how that would be
And if when I call you fail to answer
What’s to become of me?

How do I get back to you?
Which road would lead to the truth?

Show me how to get back to you
Show me how to get back to you
Show me how to get back to you
Tell me what I need to do

Gotta find my way
I just wanna come home
I’ve been gone too long
I just wanna come home

INK DRY BLUE
Written by: Glaurys Ariass, Helsa Ariass, and EARTHA

Got a note to give you
I’m not really done
Only writing pieces
A letter just for fun

Words are somewhat simple
It’s taking me a while
To write firm or fickle
Thoughts to make you smile

Put a word on paper
It’s already gone
Scribbled in the air; can’t
See it in the sun

Have to start all over
Letters fly away
Windy days will take them
Messages will fade

Put a word on paper
Let the ink dry blue
Send it with a header
I’ll know it comes from you

If you want to
You can write me back
We can just be pen pals
Tell me how you like that

Put it in a bottle
Throw it in the sea
I’ll wait by the water
It’ll get to me

And if you think your letter
Will be held up in the deep
Make your message shorter
So the weight won’t make it sink

Give it time to get here
Longer than a day
Time will travel faster
If you have less to say

Put a word on paper
Let the ink dry blue
Send it with a header
I’ll know it comes from you

Write it on paper
Shade of darker blue
Keeps the word from fading
Let the ink dry blue

I’ll be waiting still
When the message comes
In a bottle filled
With the morning sum

I’ll be waiting still
I’ll be waiting still
I’ll be waiting still
I’ll be waiting still

Put it in a bottle
Throw it in the sea
I’ll wait be the water
It’ll get to me

Shade of darker hue
Let the ink dry blue

MY FACE AGAIN
Written by: Glaurys Ariass, Helsa Ariass, and EARTHA

My life is still in session
And I haven’t time to waste
So I’m keeping my momentum
As I move from place to place

Events have changed my course
To a path that’s been derailed
A road that long divorced
My triumph from my fails

Life will take us on a spin
When we come back from where we’ve been
You will hear my voice and then
You will see my face again

Days have gone between
Interesting what we’ve become
More than what we dreamed
When we thought we were not strong

Looking back it all appears
That this end was not so far
Yet we still have miles from here
A long way from where we are

Life will take us on a spin
When we come back from where we’ve been
You will hear my voice and then
You will see my face again

Life will take us on a spin
When we come back from where we’ve been
You will hear my voice and then
You will see my face again

ONE BY ONE
Written by: Glaurys Ariass, Helsa Ariass, and EARTHA

One by One.
Two by Two. 
Sometimes (how can) we win?
Sometimes (how can) we lose?
How can we say humanity belongs to us?
When we destroy what God gave us?

Day by Day,
Count up the cost
The lives we’ve kept,
The ones we’ve lost
How can we say humanity belongs to us?
When we destroy what God gave us?

You make the choice to be the one
To hold your brother in your arms
To wipe his tears and calm his fears
To make him strong and right his wrong

One by one, one by one

One by one
Our mighty fall
A weakened arm will hold no more
And none will come around
In time to take their place
The precious life that held their space

The time will come soon or late
And we may have to contemplate
We’ll give account,
For all our days are past in golden frames
The things we’ve done,
The lives we’ve changed

You make the choice to be the one
To hold you brother in your arms
To wipe his tears and calm his fears
To make him strong and right his wrong

One by one, one by one

You make the choice to keep him safe
To guard his life with yours in place
And One by One we all become
The ones who lose the battles won

One by one, one by one

PACTS WE MAKE
Written by: Glaurys Ariass, Helsa Ariass, and EARTHA

Remember the plans we made yesterday? 
We promised to let them be
Should you get there before I do
You promised to wait for me

Don't cross that bridge till I get there...
Till I get there, wait for me
Don't take a chance, let's be prepared.
So till I get there, wait for me  

Should fate decide to turn things around,
I hope to still be true
God only knows the intent of my heart
I plan to wait for you

We'll cross that bridge when I get there...
When I get there, that’s what we'll do
We'll keep our pact and say our prayer.
Though we be two, we'll see it through

These are the pacts we make
We've thought them through.
When time says it’s too late
There will be no debate, don’t hesitate

These are the pacts we make
We promised to let them be
These are the pacts we make
I’ll wait for you, you wait for me

These are the pacts we make
Should things take a turn, I hope to be true
These are the pacts we make
God knows I plan to wait for you

These are the pacts we make
We've thought them through.
When time says it’s too late
There will be no debate, don’t hesitate

These are the pacts we make
We've thought them through.
When time says it’s too late
There will be no debate, don’t hesitate

These are the pacts we make
We've thought them through.
When time says it’s too late
There will be no debate, don’t hesitate

These are the pacts we make
We've thought them through.
When time says it’s too late
There will be no debate, don’t hesitate

These are the pacts we make
We've thought them through.
When time says it’s too late
There will be no debate, don’t hesitate

PURSUIT
Written by: Glaurys Ariass, Helsa Ariass, and EARTHA

Everyday I’d buy myself
more time if I only could
Push time back a little further,
stand on line beyond the point I should
Steady hand, a little stronger
Maybe it won’t be much longer

Before something I embrace,
Is the thing that I replace

In pursuit of all the dreams
That seem so far away from me, God knows
Make concessions as I go;
And deny what’s fair to me, it shows
Keep the truth, release the lies
Pray my tears will dry my eyes

So that I can see the shades
Right before they fade

If I decide to take a dare
and I lose,
Who’s to say that I have failed
in my pursuit?

If I decide to take a dare
and I lose,
Who’s to say that I have failed
in my pursuit?

Time again I think about
The chances that I chose to take
Notwithstanding compromise,
In retrospect, it’s my mistake
Walk away from what I do
Sometimes to win, I’ve gotta lose

So that I can stay above
Make due with just enough

I’ll keep true to my pursuit,
Even if I take a slower pace
A steady slow is what I know
Will lead me closer to another place
Step by step I’ll move along
Every trace I leave is gone

What else is there to find
I leave nothing behind

If I decide to take a dare
and I lose
Who’s to say that I have failed
in my pursuit?

If I decide to take a dare
and I lose
Who’s to say that I have failed
in my pursuit?

REACHING
Written by: Glaurys Ariass, Helsa Ariass, and EARTHA

I keep reaching out to you
Even though you’re nowhere near
I’m holding on to what I knew
Hoping you will meet me here

Will I see you? No one knows
It makes it hard to find you when
I come and go to not impose
And time moves on from now to then

So I’m keeping my heart open for you
And I’ll be dreaming of a life that will be true
If I could find you…

I close my eyes and in my mind
You’re always here to no surprise
But is this real or just a show
Tell me how and where to go (to come and go)

No sign that you will come today
I trust that maybe somehow still
We’ll meet somewhere between halfway
But where and how I cannot tell

I’ll keep reaching for what belongs to me
In a world of impossibilities
I will find you…

Searching through realities,
Endless dreams and vanities
Wandering through empty schemes
Making you my daily theme

One thing I intend to do
Is somehow make my way to you
Even if it takes forever
You’re the one I will pursue

I’ll keep reaching for what belongs to me
In a world of impossibilities
I will find you…

WHAT ABOUT WE
Written by: Glaurys Ariass, Helsa Ariass, and EARTHA

Sometimes I close my blinds,
Open my eyes to see the light
What’s day from night,
What’s wrong from right?
Then I try to contemplate all of the reasons
The world is just falling to pieces

So hard to conceive

I refuse to believe we’ll let evil destroy us
When before us we’ve got nothing but love

What about you? What about me?
What about “we the people”?
United we stand, divided we fall
What about peace? What about war?
What about now? What about before?
What about the future
and what it has in store for us?

Sometimes I search myself
And pray for help when each morning starts
I refuse to judge someone else;
Only God knows what’s in our hearts.

Why must we…

Always hate and discriminate
And keep tearing each one apart
You know things have got to change
And it’s not too late for us to start
What about you?

What about you? What about me?
What about “we the people”?
United we stand, divided we fall
What about peace? What about war?
What about now? What about before?
What about the future
and what it has in store for us?

You can start with me
Cast a beam out of my eye

What about you? What about me?
What about “we the people”?
United we stand, divided we fall
What about peace? What about war?
What about now? What about before?
What about the future
and what it has in store for us?

You can start with me.
Cast the beam out of my eye.

I eeeey Ieeeeey I  yaaaahhh (4x)

What about you? What about me?
What about “we the people”?
United we stand, divided we fall
What about peace? What about war?
What about now? What about before?
What about the future
and what it has in store for us?

What about “we the people, we the people”?

WHAT, HOW, WHY, WHEN
Written by: Glaurys Ariass, Helsa Ariass, and EARTHA

What, how, why, when
Who, where does it (all) fit in?
I can’t figure out
What this is all about

Tell me what makes the world go round
And everything that’s up, come down
What frames the time into a day
And makes the clock then tick away

How does the ocean steadily run?
And slowly hides a descending sun
How do the rays know when to leave?
Dimming the light at the brink of eve

What makes the world go round
Spinning around and round

Keeping all things we need
Centered by gravity

Why does my shadow follow behind?
Casting itself as a form defined
What makes my mind forget a thing?
And bring it back to memory

What courage does a brave man have?
Throwing his rock and hiding his hand
How is it easy for him to deny
Who can know the what, how, and why?

What makes the world go round
Spinning around and round
 

Keeping all things we need
Centered by gravity

What, how, why, when
Who, where does it (all) fit in?

I can’t figure out
What this is all about

WHOLE WORLD
Written by: Glaurys Ariass, Helsa Ariass, and EARTHA

What would you say if I
Gave you the whole world for a day
Who would you love?
Who would you save?

What would you say to me should I
Ask you to shelter your enemy
From the cold
And from the rain

Bear the weight of another
When there’s nothing to gain
The world has treasures new   
But nothing belongs to you

How do I know that you will
Keep the promises you tell?
Should I then trust that you can
Lead this whole world?

Tell me which hearts to mend should you
Carry the world’s burdens in your hand
Would it be some?
Or maybe just one

If I left you alone could you
Protect the weaker man from the strong
Who would you right?
From those who were wrong?

Bear the weight of another
When there’s nothing to gain
The world has treasures new  
But nothing belongs to you

How do I know that you will
Keep the promises you tell?
Should I then trust that you can
Lift this whole world?

And if dark shadows follow
Can you brighten tomorrow?
Should I then trust that you could
Lead this whole world?

DON’T HINDER ME
Written by: Glaurys Ariass, Helsa Ariass, and EARTHA

I suppose I’d better let you know
I feel something stirring in my soul
I know I’m sitting here all composed
But you’d better know when the Holy Ghost shows
I’m liable to hit the floor

When I think about the wonders He’s performed in my life
I could break down and cry
So when I wave my hands you may not understand
That I’ve been through a circumstance
And I’ve got a praise in advance

I don’t know about you or what you’ve come to do
But please don’t hinder me
I don’t mind your company
If you’ve got praise for the King
Let’s get together and send it up

And I suppose I’d better let you know
I’m filled with the Holy Ghost
I’m a tongue talking Holy Roller
And if that’s just too much for you
I’d better be the one to break the news
I’m a hand clapping, foot stomper

When I think about the wonders He’s performed in my life
I could break down and cry at almost anytime
So when I wave my hands you may not understand
That I’ve been through a circumstance
Got a praise in advance

I don’t know about you or what you’ve come to do
But please don’t hinder me
I don’t mind your company
If you’ve got praise for the King
Let’s get together and send it up

I suppose I’d better let you know
I feel something stirring in my soul
I know I’m sitting here all composed
But you’d better know when the Holy Ghost shows
I’m liable to hit the floor

When I think about the wonders He’s performed in my life
I could break down and cry at almost anytime
So when I wave my hands you may not understand
That I’ve been through a circumstance
I got a praise in advance

I don’t know about you or what you’ve come to do
But please don’t hinder me
I don’t mind your company
If you’ve got praise for the King
Let’s get together and send it up 

And I suppose I’d better let you know
I’m filled with the Holy Ghost
I’m a tongue talking Holy Roller
If that’s just too much for you
I’d better be the one to break the news
I’m a hand clapping, foot stomper

When I think about the wonders He’s performed in my life
I could break down and cry at almost anytime
So when I wave my hands you may not understand
I’ve been through a circumstance
I got a praise in advance

I don’t know about you or what you’ve come to do
But please don’t hinder me
I don’t mind your company
If you’ve got praise for the King
Let’s get together and send it up

Send it up. Send it on up
Send it up. Send it on up
Send it up. Send it on up
Send it up. Send it on up

I don’t know about you or what you’ve come to do
But please don’t hinder me
I don’t mind your company
If you’ve got praise for the King
Let’s get together and send it up

Send it up. Send it on up
Send it up. Send it on up
Send it up. Send it on up
Send it up. Send it on up  

I don’t know about you or what you’ve come to do
But please don’t hinder me
I don’t mind your company
If you’ve got praise for the King
Let’s get together and send it up

ENGAGED
Written by: Glaurys Ariass, Helsa Ariass, and EARTHA

I’m engaged in the craze,
been doing it like this for days
Ain’t no way I’m going to let up
I’m going to get up every time I hear your name

No matter where I am,
If I have to send a telegram
I’ll find a way to deliver
That’s (just) how convinced I am

I hear you. You hear me. We agree.

I have vowed to give my best
Don’t want to give you nothing less
If the test requires the same
Reservations under my name

I’ve been giving my props to you
We know this ain’t nothing new
I’ll admit every now and then
I’ve gotta cut a fresh step for you

I hear you. You hear me. We agree.

Ain’t no questions about what I’m going to do
It’s my time to give up my all to you

Ain’t no questions about what I’m going to do

HEARTBROKEN
Written by: Glaurys Ariass, Helsa Ariass, and EARTHA

When I found I’d hurt you, I was heartbroken
Lord, this is true; I didn’t know how to come to you
Could it have been my pride, that darkness in my life?
I felt something way inside and I know I had to get it right

The first thing that I’ll do is make amends with you
Didn’t mean to hurt you that way
The day I walked away from you
Left you standing alone, it was shivering cold
Now I want to come back home

I wanna make it better, make it up to you
Tell me where you’re gonna be, I’ll be there real soon
I know I’ve burned my bridge by all those things I did
I beg you to forgive
You’re the only way for me to live

The first thing that I’ll do is make amends with you
Didn’t mean to hurt you that way
The day I walked away from you
Left you standing alone, it was shivering cold
Now I want to come back home

I can’t even front about my history
I can’t seem to understand your love for me
Tell me why you think that I (even) deserve to be
And why do you always extend yourself to me?

The first thing that I’ll do is make amends with you
Didn’t mean to hurt you that way
The day I walked away from you
Left you standing alone, it was shivering cold
Now I want to come back home

So heartbroken
It’s a shame the way I’ve broken your heart, shame on me
I couldn’t blame you if you didn’t love me at all
It’s a shame the way I’ve broken your heart,
I couldn’t blame you if you didn’t love me at all

I am heartbroken
When I found I hurt you
Heartbroken
Just didn’t know what else to do
Heartbroken
I cried, I cried, I hurt inside
Heartbroken
Can’t you see that I’m trying to make it right?

It’s a shame the way I’ve broken your heart, shame on me
I couldn’t blame you if you didn’t love me at all
It’s a shame the way I’ve broken your heart, couldn’t blame you
I couldn’t blame you if you didn’t love me at all

I was so heartbroken
When I found I hurt you
Heartbroken
Just didn’t know what else to do
Heartbroken
I cried, I cried, I hurt inside
Heartbroken
Can’t you see that I’m trying to make it up to you?

HE’LL HOLD YOU
Written by: Glaurys Ariass, Helsa Ariass, and EARTHA

If you want Him just ask Him, He’ll hold you
When you can’t find your way He’ll come to you
He’s the best kept secret if you only knew
How sweet it is when He holds you

My friend I know sometimes we lose control of our lives
And it seems like our dreams all go crumbling (down, down)
You think you’re walking in the light with all you see before your eyes
It’s just like walking in the night where you keep stumbling

You just want some peace and you seek a bit of relief
Your boat’s rowing down the stream but not so gently
Row, row, row your boat
It’s the middle of the week and you still can’t get no sleep
I know exactly what you need
He’s the only way to get some peace,
if you want Him, just ask Him

If you want Him, just ask Him, He’ll hold you
When you can’t find you way He’ll come to you
He’s the best kept secret, if you only knew
How very sweet it is when He holds you

I’ve been where you are and I scrolled out my memoirs
And I sent it in a jar across the ocean
It was to symbolize all the turmoil in my life
And I used my pain to set my prayer in motion

It was definitely grace elevating all of my faith
I felt such a warm embrace in this experience
Heaviness lightened up with ease, suddenly I now could breathe
And I know that this is only because of His presence,
so if you want Him, just ask Him

If you want Him, just ask Him, He’ll hold you
When you can’t find you way He’ll come to you
He’s the best kept secret, if you only knew
How very sweet it is when He holds you

If you don’t mind, He might come tonight
Everything will be alright
Things may not change the way you’d like
At least you’ll have some peace of mind

If you don’t mind, He might come tonight
Everything will be alright
Things may not change the way you’d like
At least you’ll have some peace of mind

If you don’t mind, He might come tonight
Everything will be alright
Things may not change the way you’d like
But at least you’ll have some peace of mind

If you don’t mind, He might come tonight
Everything will be alright
Things may not change the way you’d like
At least you’ll have some peace of mind

If you don’t mind, He might come tonight
Everything will be alright
Things may not change the way you’d like
At least you’ll have some peace of mind

When he holds you

I’M STILL STANDING
Written by: Glaurys Ariass, Helsa Ariass, and EARTHA

I know you ain’t seen me lately
I bet you thought you drove me crazy
The last time you saw me I ran for cover
And you assumed it was all over

I’m still standing, I’m still standing yeah
I’m still standing, I ain’t going no where

I know you thought you saw the end of me
But God, He just would not let it be
Intervening before the attack
(He) refused to let me go down like that

I’m still standing; hit me with your best shot
I’m still standing
I’m still standing, all you got
I’m still standing

I’m still standing; hit me with your best shot
I ain’t going no where, I ain’t going no where
I ain’t going no where, all you got

I know you don’t wanna hear my voice
I’m sure you didn’t expect to see me no more
I remind you of how cruel you be
I never gave you a reason to rail on me

I’m still standing, I’m still standing yeah
I’m still standing; I know you didn’t wanna see me no more
I’m still standing, I’m still standing
I ain’t going no where, I ain’t going no where

There’s one (up) above who’s Almighty
(He) kick me down with all the strength I need
So do what you want to do to try and work me
Nothing you can do to harm me

I’m still standing; hit me with your best shot
I’m still standing, all you got
I know you didn’t wanna see me no more
I’m still standing; hit me with your best shot
I ain’t going no where
I ain’t going no where, all you got

Pressure made me go the round
And it almost took me down
Making move I didn’t plan
Throwing blows I couldn’t land

But I had to hold my frame
Got some strength when I heard my name
Focused on what really counts
At the end I stand my ground

I’m still standing, I’m still standing
Got all the strength I need
I’m still standing, yeah yeah
I’m still standing, I ain’t going no where

Pressure made me go the round
And it almost took me down
Making move I didn’t plan
Throwing blows I couldn’t land
But I had to hold my frame
Got some strength when I heard my name
Focused on what really counts
At the end I stand my ground
I’m still standing

I’m still standing; hit me with your best shot
Here I am, I’m still standing
I’m still standing, all you got
I know you don’t wanna see me
I’m still standing; hit me with your best shot
I ain’t going no where, I ain’t going no where

I know you thought you saw the end of me
I’m still standing; hit me with your best shot
I know you didn’t wanna see me know more
I’m still standing, all you got
I ain’t going no where

I’m still standing; hit me with your best shot
I ain’t going no where, I ain’t going no where
I ain’t going no where, all you got

IMPRESSIONS
Written by: Glaurys Ariass, Helsa Ariass, and EARTHA

Every time I wake each morning
Just to see a brand new day
I lift up my heart and remind myself
To forever give my Father all the thanks

I witness all nature calling
As the winter leaves are falling
Before they touch the ground reminds me
Of my spirit floating on a cloud

These impressions, they remind me of
The day I tasted Heaven’s glory
Light upon me as a gentile dove
It was both sweet and divine

It felt like the morning’s dew
Descending upon me anew
Sealed within my soul a song of love
One that I’d never learned, and since not have heard

Ohhh

LATELY
Written by: Glaurys Ariass, Helsa Ariass, and EARTHA

Ordinarily you could tell me almost anything, anything
I'd embrace the world without ever even questioning,
But I tell you lately I've changed my view of the world
Lately the darkness has been unveiled
Lately I am not the ordinary me
Lately I've been seeking a deeper life
Lately I've been walking in the Light
Maybe, maybe there is something wrong with me
Lately

Could I possibly be moving into a brand new day,
I've been wondering if this just a seasonal display
But I tell you lately I just have not been myself
Lately I've been feeling like someone else
Lately I am not the ordinary me
Lately I've been feeling kind of strange
Lately going through some kind of change
Maybe, maybe there's something wrong with me

Who said something's wrong with you?
(I think something’s wrong with me)
Maybe you're just growing new
Could be everything's alright
All good things, they come in time

Maybe this is reverie,
Things may not be what they seem,
But if it's my imagination,
Then nothing's really wrong with me

Lately I have changed my view of the world
Lately the darkness has been unveiled
Lately I am not the ordinary me
Lately I've been seeking a deeper life
Lately I've been walking in the Light
 

Maybe I can't describe this feeling;
But I won't deny its being;
You see, it's settling deep inside me;
Speaking to me as I sleep

Someone must be praying for me
Two or three they touch and agree
I say they've really got it working (really got it working)
Cause something's got a hold on me (hold on me)

Lately I just have not been myself
Lately I've been feeling like someone else
Lately I am not the ordinary me
Lately I've been feeling kind of strange
Lately going through some kind of change
Maybe, maybe there's something wrong with me

I tell you lately something’s wrong
Lately I have changed my view of the world
Lately the darkness has been unveiled
Lately I am not the ordinary me
Lately I've been seeking a deeper life
Lately I've been walking in the Light

LOGICAL INFERENCE
Written by: Glaurys Ariass, Helsa Ariass, and EARTHA

You say you have it all together
And everything’s going your way
You say that nothing’s bothering you
But you’re just camouflaging your pain

Everyday there’s a struggle
And you’re wondering if you should let it go
Because faking ain’t easy
When you’re breaking into pieces

You say you have it all together
And everything’s going your way
You say that nothing’s bothering you
But you’re just camouflaging your pain

You’re smiling and you’re gracious
You’re crying in private places
Feeling fair weathered
Trying to hold it together

But based on logical inference
Nothing is what it seems
Your life is much different
The hurt of a broken dream

Based on logical inference
In spite of what you say
Your life is much different
Than the one that you portray

You say you have it all together
And everything’s going your way
You say that nothing’s bothering you
But you’re just camouflaging your pain

Everyday there’s a struggle
And you’re wondering if you should let it go
Because faking ain’t easy
When you’re breaking into pieces

You say you have it all together
And everything’s going your way
You say that nothing’s bothering you
But you’re just camouflaging your pain

You’re smiling and you’re gracious
You’re crying in private places
Feeling fair weathered
Trying to hold it together

But based on logical inference
Nothing is what it seems
Your life is much different
The hurt of a broken dream

Based on logical inference
In spite of what you say
Your life is much different
Than the one that you portray

Remember all that glitters may not be gold
Your life is a story to be told
And if you think nobody sees you
You’re sadly mistaken, you’ve just deceived you

All that glitters may not be gold
Your life is a story to be told
And if you think nobody sees you
You’re sadly mistaken, you’ve just deceived you

LOVING YOU

With all my heart I’m loving you, you’re loving me too
Yes this is true.  Yes it’s true
All that we do is between me and you
I’ll keep loving you

And everyday I’m trusting you for all that you do
Yes this is true.  Yes it’s true
All that you say between us will stay
You’ll be with me always

There is a tie that binds so strong that I can’t let it go
There is a love so strong it keeps me holding on

I believe you always knew that I can’t live without you
Yes this is true. Yes it’s true
I’d toss in my sleep, cry endlessly
If you couldn’t be with me

It’s beyond me to repay you, I will serenade you
Yes this is true. Yes it’s true
This song’s for you.  It belongs to you
I’ll be loving you

There is a tie that binds so strong that I can’t let it go
There is a love so strong it keeps me holding on

Love divine, Love divine.
I am yours. You are mine.
Forever more. For a lifetime
I’ll be loving you. Loving you

There is a tie that binds so strong that I can’t let it go
There is a love so strong it keeps me holding on

With all my heart I’m loving you, you’re loving me too
Yes this is true.  Yes it’s true
All that we do is between me and you
I’ll keep loving you

NEXT TO YOU
Written by: Glaurys Ariass, Helsa Ariass, and EARTHA

I remember late November
Pondering over all of the things in my life
You consoled me, came to hold me,
Showed yourself right and you kept me through the night

Got a bit of déjà vu
Once I got you back into my view
Saw it like a matinee
Didn’t know it was coming that way

Got a bit of déjà vu
Once I got you back into my view
Saw it like a matinee

There’s no one to stand next to you
Nobody can do what you do
You really don’t have nothing else to prove
The things you do, it’s just like you

You stand all by yourself
Can’t be compared to no one else
You’re the first and only last premiere
You’ve got so much savoire-faire

You’re amazing, keep me gazing, }
You’re my admiration and I thing you are so awesome
And you are second to none, never will you be undone
By any other power; you exceed all expectation

Got a bit of déjà vu
Once I got you back into my view
Saw it like a matinee
Didn’t know it was coming that way

Got a bit of déjà vu
Once I got you back into my view
Saw it like a matinee
Didn’t know it was coming that way

Didn’t know what to do cause you caught me by surprise
I’m sure you could tell when you looked into my eyes
Thought I knew you well until now
And I realize, I realized

No one, nobody can do what you do
You really don’t have nothing else to prove
The things you do, just like you
Oh it’s just like you stand

By yourself
Can’t be compared, no one else
You’re the first and only last premiere
You’ve got so much savoire-faire

Next to you, nobody can do what you do
You really don’t have nothing else to prove
The things you do, just like you
Oh it’s just like you stand

By yourself
Can’t be compared, no one else
You’re the first and only last premiere
You’ve got so much savoire-faire

There’s no one next to you
Nobody can do (no one)
Really don’t have nothing else to prove
The things you do, just like you

Oh you stand all by yourself
Can’t be compared, no one else
You’re the first and only last premiere
You’ve got so much savoire-faire

There’s no one next to you

SIDEBAR
Written by: Glaurys Ariass, Helsa Ariass, and EARTHA

Take me off to the side
Speak to me in the night
And my soul will be silent
For your direction and your guidance
(I’ll) leave the noisy world behind me
In solitude you will find me
Release the stuff inside me
Loose the chains that try to bind me

You know be better than anyone
Ain’t got no facades, here I come
You know the things that I’ve said and done
I have no excuses. No not one
Take me out of the spot;
If I ain’t ready for my lot
You know if I can handle it or not;
Or if I need a Sidebar

This may be so apropos
If I holla please don’t let me go
You know what I do not know
Give me a sidebar to the letter
It might make me cry but I’ll be better

Take me down to the sea;
I’ll hold my breath and then I’ll count to three
After immersion maybe we can tea;
And talk about all that is not right with me

You read me just like an open book
You don’t even have to take a look
All those things I misunderstood
Work together for my higher good

I should have been on the silver screen
Tragedy was a daily scene
Won’t you put me on quarantine,
Or you can roll me up in a magazine

Tell the press be advised
I won’t be wearing no disguise
Truth reflected in my eyes
I’m tryna access paradise

This may be so apropos
If I holla please don’t let me go
You know what I do not know
Your Honor, give me a sidebar to the letter
It might make me cry but I’ll be better

Take me off to the side
Speak to me in the night
And my soul will be silent
For your direction and your guidance
(I’ll) leave the noisy world behind me
In solitude you will find me
Release the stuff inside me
Loose the chains that try to bind me

You know be better than anyone
Ain’t got no facades, here I come
You know the things that I’ve said and done
I have no excuses. No not one
Take me out of the spot;
If I ain’t ready for my lot
You know if I can handle it or not;
Or if I need a Sidebar

Your Honor, give me a sidebar to the letter
It might make me cry but I’ll be better

Take me off to the side

SIMPLE THINGS
Written by: Glaurys Ariass, Helsa Ariass, and EARTHA

I’m a simple girl who loves simple things
I have hopes and I have dreams
But what would they mean
If you were not here with me

I ain’t trying to be nobody’s superstar (superstar)
Lord I wanna be right where you are
Tomorrow if you’d take it all away
I’d still be loving you anyway (Still be loving you anyway)

Oh I love these simple things
Because I’m just a simple girl
Oh I love these simple things
Because I’m just a simple girl

It ain’t like I ain’t never been there before (there before)
When there was no open door
And I thanked you all the more
That is what you made me for

I still love the beach and the sounds of waves
I love the park and the trees of shade
It’s the way you cover me
From the heat of the day (You find a way to cover me, cover me)

Oh I love these simple things
Because I’m just a simple girl
Oh I love these simple things
Because I’m just a simple girl

TOO MUCH FOR ME
Written by: Glaurys Ariass, Helsa Ariass, and EARTHA

Could it be that this world is just a little too much for me
Without you, without you

Does my heart belong somewhere else,
To someone greater than myself
Tender and delicate,
There is no replicate

I sat down by the ocean, Lord I thought of you
Cried with mixed emotions, I was feeling blue
Why does this world keep me so confused?
Why can’t I live the life of a recluse?

Sometimes I wonder where I belong
Feel so removed from what I call home
This present state of humanity
So much calamity

Looked up in the mirror and what did I see
Two big lonely eyes looking back at me
Then I heard a voice within me say
You’re not the only one who feels this way

Does my heart belong somewhere else,
To someone greater that myself
Tender and delicate,
There is no replicate

So I’ll keep my eyes with a view to find
A peaceful place that’s yours and mine

Could it be that this world is just a little too much for me
Without you, without you
Could it be that this world is just a little too much for me
Without you, without you

So I’ll keep my eyes with a view to find
A peaceful place that’s yours and mine

You can take me there, you can take me there
Anytime you want to, you can take me there
I’ll be waiting for you to come and take me there
Anytime you want to, you can take me there
 

Take me there, you can take me there
Anytime you want to, you can take me there
I’ll be waiting for you to come and take me there
Anytime you want to, you can take me there

Take me there, you can take me there
Anytime you want to, you can take me there
I’ll be waiting for you to come and take me there
Anytime you want to, you can take me there

Take me there, you can take me there
Anytime you want to, you can take me there
I’ll be waiting for you to come and take m
e there
Anytime you want to, you can take me there

WHAT IF
Written by: Glaurys Ariass, Helsa Ariass, and EARTHA

What would I ever do
if I couldn’t spend my time with you?
My world wouldn’t be the same, no
So I’d do anything to be with you

What if I never knew
That you love me quite way that you do? (way you do, way you do)
Had you not shown me so
I guess I would have never known, I would have never known

I can’t fathom this complexed matter
It’s a thing beyond my understanding
It’s a rhapsody of love
I can’t fathom this complexed matter
I guess we’ll talk about it when we get together
Cause we’ve got forever, ain’t no rush

What if you never cared,
left me hanging in the middle of nowhere?
I would just lose my mind Jesus
I would be lost in time, delirious

So I made up in my mind
Thought about it just about a million times
No matter where you are, I’ll find you
I won’t be too far behind you

I can’t fathom this complexed matter
It’s a thing beyond my understanding
It’s just a rhapsody of love
I can’t fathom this complexed matter
I guess we’ll talk about it when we get together
Cause we’ve got forever, ain’t no rush

What would I ever do
if I couldn’t spend my time with you?
My world wouldn’t be the same, no}
So I’d do anything to be with you

What if I never knew
that you love me quite way that you do? (way you do, way you do)
Had you not shown me so
I guess I would have never known, I would have never known

I can’t fathom this complexed matter
It’s a thing beyond my understanding
It’s just a rhapsody of love
I can’t fathom this complexed matter
I guess we’ll talk about it when we get together
Cause we’ve got forever, ain’t no rush

What if you never cared?
Left me hanging in the middle of nowhere?
I would just lose my mind Jesus
I would be lost in time, delirious

Made up in my mind
Thought about it just about a million times
No matter where you are, I’ll find you
I won’t be too far behind you

What if I never knew you?
Couldn’t find my way to you? (I don’t know what I would do)
What if you never cared? (What if you never cared?)
What if you never even loved me?
left me hanging in the middle of nowhere?  

I would just lose my mind, I would be lost in time
What if I never knew you? Couldn’t find my way to you?
(I don’t know what I would do without you)

WORRYIN’ ‘BOUT ME
Written by: Glaurys Ariass, Helsa Ariass, and EARTHA

Ain’t no sense in worryin bout me;
Ain’t no sense in worryin bout me;
What if I vanish tomorrow?
Life still goes on without me

Ain’t no sense in crying over me;
I lived to be all I knew to be
Just keep my words that you borrowed;
Publish them for the whole world to see

What I do with my time
Is work on me, It’s my life
Gotta be sure that I’m right;
Cross my T’s and dot my I’s

And if I miss don’t be confused
I’m not a hypocrite.   That ain’t cool
You’ve got an optimist in the room
And all I’m trying to do is tell you

Ain’t no sense in worryin bout me;
Ain’t no sense in worryin bout me;
What if I vanish tomorrow?
Life still goes on without me

We cannot suspend a prophecy;
My friend what will be, it sure will be (que sera sera)
If Babylon falls tomorrow,
Then that’s how it was supposed to be

Can’t control every circumstance
Some things are out of your hands
You’ve got to believe there’s a bigger plan
Or you’ll make yourself a madman

Take the coast, walk the shoreline,
Search your soul, free your mind
Try to be right in all you do
Cause only you can account for you

Ain’t no sense in worryin bout me;
Ain’t no sense in worryin bout me;
What if I vanish tomorrow?
Life still goes on without me 

We cannot suspend a prophecy;
My friend what will be, it sure will be (que sera sera)
If Babylon falls tomorrow,
Then that’s how it was supposed to be

Ain’t no sense in crying over me;
I lived to be all I knew to be
Just keep my words that you borrowed;
Publish them for the whole world to see

Ain’t no sense in worryin bout me; (Ain’t no sense in crying over me)
Ain’t no sense in worryin bout me;
What if I vanish tomorrow?
Life still goes on without me

A NATURAL THING
Written by: Glaurys Ariass, Helsa Ariass, and EARTHA

Pray always in Jesus name; talk to Him everyday
Hear what He has to say; take a moment to be still
And He’ll reveal His will for your life

Saints, accept His guiding hand because He’s got a plan
You may not understand, but when you read His Word
Best news you’ve ever heard; Give you peace of mind

If God’s people who are called by His name
Would humble themselves and seek His face
And if we’d turn from our wicked ways
then He would surely heal the land

He’s a wonder working God; knows all that’s in your heart
Right from the very start, keeper of all men;
Put your trust in Him, let your prayer begin
He will hear you when you call; restore you when you fall
No request too small; no matter where you’ve been
He’s willing to forgive; you can come to Him

You should abide in Christ and let His Word abide in you
Ask what you will and know it shall be granted you
Call on the Lord on one accord
Where two or three touch and agree
Ain’t no impossibility

We ought to tell the Lord
Let the Lord know how much we really need Him
Humbly bow before Him to entreat Him
Find out through His Word just what will please Him
‘Cause ain’t no telling what’ll happen when we seek Him

It’s just a natural thing when we call upon Jesus name
Prayer should be a natural thing,
Coming from the heart into His dwelling/
It’s the only way to receive His blessings/
Stay on our knees and keep travailing.

AINT NOTHIN’ WRONG
Written by: Glaurys Ariass, Helsa Ariass, and EARTHA

Let all creation dance before Him
Angelic host bow down before Him
Heavens and universe applaud Him
For He is Lord of the dance
He is Lord of the dance and He receives our praises
Let all creation clap their hands
Sons of God and sons of man

Oh my friend, haven’t you heard?
In the beginning He just spoke the Word,
Out of nowhere came a world that turns before Him
Round and round it goes
And the fowl, which fly above, embrace the heavens
Singing glory to His name
And the fountains of the deep, when they break,
Sounds just like they’re giving Him the praise

So I say to you think of Him and just how good He’s been
Cause ain’t nothin wrong with a li‘l praise every now and then
You oughta lift those hands, do your dance
For the Lord our God inhabits all of the praises
And it goes before his throne
It ascends as a sweet savor and it’s for Him alone

We’ve come to jam for Jesus
We’ve come to clap our hands and jam for Jesus
We’ve come to praise Him in the dance like David
We gon’ do it like David
Cause we’re not ashamed to praise His name

Cause ain’t nothin wrong with a li’l praise every now and then.

ALL THAT REALLY MATTERS
Written by: Glaurys Ariass, Helsa Ariass, and EARTHA

When I close my eyes to say goodbye to life,
All I want to know is that I’ve truly strived
Cause all that really matters anymore
Is to love the one whom I truly adore
He’s the one that I am living for
And with all of my heart I want to please the Lord

I know that I’m not all I should be,
But as long as his word abides in me,
He’ll cause me to stand
I’m in his hand, He knows who I am

When that day comes for me to take my rest,
All I want to know is that I’ve done my best
In spite of the obstacles I’ve faced
The countless times I’ve fallen in this race
Had it not been for his grace
Gloom would have filled all of my days

All that really matters anymore
Is just to please the Lord
I want to hear Him say
“Well done thy good and faithful servant, enter into my courts;
Well done, enter into my joy”

I don’t know about you or what you want to do
You can have the fame, you can make yourself a name
But all that really matters anymore
Is to please the Lord

All that really matters anymore
Is to love the one whom I truly adore
He’s the one that I am living for
And with all of my heart I want to please the Lord.

BACK
Written by: Glaurys Ariass, Helsa Ariass, and EARTHA

I’m going back to my first love, I’m going back to my first joy
I’m going back where I first believed, going back to my priority
‘Cause I strayed away many a day, said that I would not
Done the things that I should not have done,
I’ve done wrong, but now I wanna come home
I’m so sorry, forgive me Lord, I know where I belong

Crying, Oh Lord, won’t you restore all of my joy
‘Cause I just wanna love you more
And each day I pray that you would lead my way
Grant me your mercy and grace, falling on my knees today
I just wanna find my way back to you

I’m going back, wanna go back to my first love
Back to my first love
Don’t kill the fatted calf; you ain’t got to roast no lamb
Don’t need a fancy ring or material things,
You can bar-b-que wings in the backyard, it’s alright with me
It really doesn’t matter Lord, just as long as I’m right where you are
I’ve been gone a little to long, now I wanna come home
Oh, what a lesson I’ve learned
It was I who walked away; Father I sho’ regret that day
It’s time for me to return

I’ve had many dreams about the day when I’d be comin’ home
Just wanna see your face; what a restoration
Don’t need no group party just to help me get my praise on
Appreciate the celebration

Cause now I’m back with my first love, back with my first joy
Back to the old landmark, back with a brand new start
I’m back with my first love, Got my head on straight;
Back with my first joy, I’ve been restored to where I first believed,
Back to my priority, Back

GOD IS ON OUR SIDE
Written by: Glaurys Ariass, Helsa Ariass, and EARTHA

God is on our side
We shall not be afraid, we shall not be afraid
Though war shall rise against our souls
We shall not be afraid, we shall not be afraid

Though we get weary, we shall not fear
We shall be carried on eagles wings, oh oh 

God is on our side we shall not be afraid, we shall not be afraid

Though the enemy shall come in,
Like a flood the Spirit of the Lord
Will lift up a standard against him
We shall not be afraid, we shall not be afraid

Don’t you know that the Lord shall go before us
We shall not fear the enemy
We shall not fear the darkness
We shall not be afraid

No weapon formed against us shall be able to prosper
For when our God is for us He shall cause us to triumph, yeah 

I’m encouraged to know He’s on our side, Yeah
He’s more than the world against us
Though the enemy should come in, God is on our side
I know that He’s walking with me
I know that He’s talking with me
He’s on our side.

HE KNOWS
Written by: Glaurys Ariass, Helsa Ariass, and EARTHA

It takes the Lord to give a melody
It takes the Lord to give a song
Only He knows what we really need to help us carry on
He knows yes indeed, and He knows everything

It takes the Lord to strengthen me each day
To carry my heavy load
It is His anointing that replenishes me; satisfies my thirsty soul
He knows yes indeed, and He knows everything

He knows everything; all about the pain
And the burdens we bear; just know He cares
There ain’t nothin’ He don’t know
No place He won’t go, nothing He won’t do for me and you.

Yeah, there ain’t nothin’ He don’t know
Yeah, He knows everything there is to know

The Lord, He has searched me
And He knows me all throughout
My downsitting and uprising, all my whereabouts
Whether shall I go from Him, whether shall I flee
Take the wings of morning, fly above the deep
Yeah, there ain’t nothing He don’t know

If I say to darkness “cover, hide me in the night”,
It won’t make a difference, ‘cause to Him they’re both alike
To ascend to heaven is my earnest prayer
There’s no doubt within me, He will meet me there

Yeah, there ain’t nothing He don’t know
Yeah, He knows everything there is to know.

JUST TAKE SOME TIME
Written by: Glaurys Ariass, Helsa Ariass, and EARTHA

Just take some time, tell Him what’s on your mind
He will hear your heart’s cry, you know He’s standing by
Find a quiet place, and there seek His face
In spirit and in truth, He’ll reveal Himself to you
Take some quiet time and you’ll find
That He has the answers for your life, Jesus has a word for you

Fear not solitude, He will come to you
When you kneel down in prayer, He will meet you there
He knows what you need, ask Him for His peace
‘Cause what He wants to do is spend time with you
Take some quiet time and you’ll find
That Jesus wants to speak to you

What will you do when He comes to you and says,
“Oh my child, I’ve been here all of the time waiting patiently
Please don’t go away, why won’t you stay,
Stay for a while and commune with me
This is our time, you and I
If you won’t stay, please tell me why, tell me why
Tell me why you call upon me then you rush me off the line
You say you love me and that I’m always on your mind
Oh, you said we’d be together forever Valentine
And yet you only share just moments of your time.”

Take some time to be with Him,
Renew the vow you made to Him
The day you gave to Him your heart and soul,
Brother, I tell you, you can begin again
Take some time to be with Him, Sister, renew the vow,
Make some time to speak with Him
Take some time to share with Him
To be with the one you love, ah ah ah ah
Why don’t you take some time to share with the one you love.

LOVE JONES
Written by: Glaurys Ariass, Helsa Ariass, and EARTHA

I’ve got a love jones for you Jesus
Something in my heart is going on
I’ve got a love song for you Jesus
And I’ll sing it all day long

It is so amazing the joy I feel inside
And it’s fascinating just to have you in my life
Everyone keeps wondering what’s wrong with me these days
Ain’t got a clue about me and you; they just think I’m in a daze

When my heart was broken, it was you who mended me
Bound it up with chords of love your tender remedy
If I could repay you I would anoint your feet
And this girl would tell the world how much you mean to me

I must be in love, you’re all I think of
When I wake in the morning,
You’re the only one that’s on my mind
In the noonday Lord I feel your embrace
When the world surrounding me is so very cold and unkind
In the evening I hear you speaking to me
Through your holy Word calling me your beloved
I’ve been bought with a price
Lord that’s sure mighty nice that you love me so much

Everyday is jubilee because of what you’ve done in me
Shown me how sweet life could be, you’re the only remedy 
Everyday is a holiday since you came into my life to stay
Hear me Jesus when I say I never thought I’d feel this way

I’ve got nothin‘ but love for you Jesus
Got a love jones for your love
Out of all the people in the world,
You’re the only one that I’m constantly thinking of.

NEVER CHANGE
Written by: Glaurys Ariass, Helsa Ariass, and EARTHA

Times change, seasons change, people change their minds
But I know someone who stays the same
Constant in changing times, He’ll never change
He remains the same

And though the world should change
He remains unfaltering, immortal and ever true,
Faithful to His word and He never fails to fulfill his promises
And brings to fruition the vision that He places
Within the hearts of men

Secret things belong to God;
Who can know His heart?
Who can find Him out? 
In and of His glory, He’s quite a mystery
Greatest controversy we’ve ever seen
Never changing, He is reigning sovereign
None else like Him, one should seek to find Him

As with prophets of old, visions unfold before us
He speaks still, He reveals Himself, He hasn’t changed
And He never will, He’ll never change
In Him there is no shadow of turning, only faithfulness
And who He was a million years ago,
He was on yesterday and shall ever be

He’s Alpha, Omega He’s the beginning and He’s the ending
(and every episode)
What a sight to behold
Oh, the depth of His person, His creation, manifestation
Who can know?

The heavens of heavens cannot contain Him
Yet He still saw fit to dwell among men
Before his creation, He stands ageless;
Unlike four seasons, He’s never changing.  He’ll never change.

SHEKINAH GLORY
Written by: Glaurys Ariass, Helsa Ariass, and EARTHA

There’s a mighty presence in the room right now
Descending upon the children in the building
It’s coming down like the rain

Oh oh oh oh, your Shekinah glory
Oh oh oh oh, your Shekinah glory

Oh the beauty of exchange
As our hearts to you ascend
There’s a sweet and gentile wind now upon us
As the cloud descends

Welcome Holy Spirit, show us your glory
Your Shekinah Glory, oh oh, your Shekinah glory

Yes the glory of the Lord is in His temple,
Let’s praise him
He reveals Himself unto His holy people,
Who are called by His Name
Who will humble themselves and pray
And will seek His face always

Oh oh, your Shekinah glory
Oh oh, your Shekinah glory

Let the glory of the Lord now come from on high
Let the presence of the Lord come and abide.

SPEAK LORD
Written by: Glaurys Ariass, Helsa Ariass, and EARTHA

Speak Lord and I shall hear all you have to say
Speak Lord and help me not to keep hesitating
when you call my name
Speak Lord, for me I know you’ve been waiting
Speak Lord and I shall obey

You called Samuel when he was but a child
Though he did not know your voice, he ran to the man of God
Eli said to him, “Samuel, next time He calls your name,
say unto Him,
‘Yes Lord, thy servant heareth; Yes, speak to me.’”

I am so humbled that you would consider me to hear your voice
Manifest thyself to me, Lord, however you please that I may receive
For thy Word is precious, more to be desired than gold, purest gold

Oh, Be still my soul, Father’s calling me to sweet melodies
I’m not afraid; when You speak to me,
Seems like I can hear angels sing

I hear your voice; speak to me (4x)
Here I am, I’m open Lord, Hallelujah, Here I am
Speak Lord and I shall hear (6x)

I ain’t going no where, gonna stay right here ‘til you speak to me
Lord, I wanna hear your voice, speak Lord
I wanna hear you
Can’t rest ‘til you speak to me
Can’t live ‘til you speak to me
Come on Jesus, here I am
Can’t live ‘less you speak to me
Can’t move ‘less you speak to me
I’m open Lord, yes I am, here I am.

THIS I KNOW
Written by: Glaurys Ariass, Helsa Ariass, and EARTHA

This beauty your hand created, Most High
Father indeed we beheld it, oh
From nothing you molded and shaped a great form
Where you did dwell making your home
I know I’m not worthy of you come within
But that Life you created blotted my sins
I don’t know what lies ahead of me
In the absence of you is a life I can’t see

As you did then, please do again
Use me, make me your home, dwell within
You love me so, You told me so,
A life with you is true; this I know

You left your Word for me, Lord, it’s my guide
Leads me through life’s stormy weather
You’re the source of strength who will comfort my soul
Said you’d be with me forever
In all of my heartache and pain you will remain;
On me fall from on high blessed rain
Here I am Lord waiting to receive
The gift of your presence within me

As you did then, you’ve done again
(Thank you) for choosing me, making your home to dwell within
You loved me so, You told me so
A life with you is something beautiful

Lord I used to worry ‘bout the future and what it held for me
Until you proved that You’re my total security
You breathed on me and made your home inside of me
Gave me your Holy Spirit as my earnest guarantee

Should you call me home tomorrow, with you I’ll ever be
Departing from a world of sorrow, basking in joy eternally
But until you rapture me away, in you I’ll constantly hope
And every day as I awake, you’re living in me, this I know

VISION
Written by: Glaurys Ariass, Helsa Ariass, and EARTHA

I will stand upon my watch
Set me upon a tower
I will watch to see what the Lord will say unto me
He said write the vision,
Make it plain upon the tables
That he may run that readeth it,
For the vision is for an appointed time,
At the end it shall speak and not lie

I know that you’ve been waiting for a while
Seems like your blessings they just keep passing you by
Everybody’s got something going on
You’re waiting for the dream that you can call your own

Though in the fire you’ve been throughly tried
God is not a man that He should ever lie, He won’t ever lie
And if He said it just you surely wait
For the just man shall live by his faith

I’ve got a word for you and it ain’t nothin‘ new
This is what you oughta do - rehearse His promises to you
It is only by His grace that we have the patience to wait
You oughta give God His praise

Whatever He’s told you, whatever He’s shown you
Count it already done cause only He can do
Don’t stagger at his promise, just you believe
Like Abraham our father, you shall receive.

WE SERVE A MIGHTY GOD
Written by: Glaurys Ariass, Helsa Ariass, and EARTHA

We serve a mighty God, yes we do
A big God, A great God Oh yeah
We serve a mighty God
What a mighty God is He

Well He speaks just a Word and the winds obey His will
He’ll speak in the middle of a storm, “Peace be still”
It ain’t nothing but a word
Well He moves in a windstorm making everything calm
He’s the great I AM; He performs mighty acts

We serve a mighty God, yes we do
A big God, A great God Oh yeah
We serve a mighty God
What a mighty God is He

Yes, He’s deeper than the deepest ocean, wider than any sea
He lights on the purple mountains majesties
But yet He’s not too busy to meet me on my knees
I know He’s right here to answer my prayers

I’ve searched all over but I could not find
None to compare with this God of mine
He is indeed a mighty God
The God that I serve is a mighty God

He’s all He says He is; all that He says He is
He’s all that, all that and more,
He’s all that one could ever hope for

Mighty in Word
Mighty in Deed
Mighty in Power
