    There is nothing more frustrating and tiring than trying to live the Christian life in our own strength. There is only one person, ever, who was, and is able to live the Christian life. Jesus Christ Himself. Jesus promised that, if we allowed Him, He will come to live in us.

    When daily I offer myself to God as clay to the potters hand and tell him that I am totally relying on His direction, His strength, His wisdom and His love, He takes me, warts and all, and swaps my pitiful life and in it's place imparts His life. He wants to live His life in and through us. This is what "The Great Exchange" is all about; Christ in you, the hope of glory.

    God Bless

Track Name: Alive Forevermore
With all that I am, I come to thee
To claim a new start, which you've given to me
Through your only Son, who died for me
Yes He came to set me free
I now have new life

Now I am alive forevermore
And with all the saints your son I adore
To be in your presence I long for
And forever and ever worship you
With the angels around your throne
Never more to be lost and alone
Safe in your arms I'll be finally home

And it's all because of you
There's only one thing I can do
And that is put my faith in you
For you are God

Now that you hold me in your hand
Lord I surrender all that I am
'Cause I know for sure that you have a plan
And as you take me as I am
You are my life

Now I am alive forevermore
And with all the saints your son I adore
To be in your presence I long for
And forever and ever worship you
With the angels around your throne
Never more to be lost and alone
Safe in your arms I'll be finally home

Now I am alive forevermore
And with all the saints your son I adore
To be in your presence I long for
And forever and ever worship you
With the angels around your throne
Never more to be lost and alone
Safe in your arms I'll be finally home

And it's all because of you
There's only one thing I can do
And that is to put my faith in you
For you are God
For you are my God
For you are God
Track Name: The Lord Is My Shepherd
The lord is my shepherd I shall not want
He makes me lie down in green pastures

He leads me beside the still waters
He restores my soul
And guides my path in righteousness
For His name's sake

Surely goodness and loving kindness
Shall follow me all the days of my life
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord
Forever and ever and ever

Though I walk through the valley
Of the shadow of death
I will not fear, Thou art with me
Thy rod and thy staff they comfort me

Thou preparest a table
Before me in the presence of my enemies
My cup's overflowing

Surely goodness and loving kindness
Shall follow me all the days of my life
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord
Forever and ever and ever

The lord is my shepherd I shall not want
Track Name: To Live Is Christ
To live is Christ and to die is gain
There is no other life that I desire to claim
Than the life that's dead that I might live again
No more in self to pride, for I have died
And to live is Christ, and to live is Christ
For I've been crucified, and to live is Christ

And my single thought is just to hear Your voice
For this I have been bought
to make my Lord rejoice
And if all I do is bring joy to You
Then let my life be poured, an offering to the Lord
And to live is Christ, and to live is Christ
For I've been crucified, and to live is Christ

Let my life be a fountain of Your blessing
Let my life be a fragrant sacrifice
That the hurt and bruised may know
the God that loves them so
Forever let my prayer be

To live is Christ and to die is gain
There is no other life that I desire to claim
Than the life that's dead that I might live again
No more in self to pride, for I have died
And to live is Christ, and to live is Christ
For I've been crucified, and to live is Christ
Track Name: From Glory To Glory (Instrumental)
Instrumental
Track Name: A Cure
A cure a cure a cure they say
We've found a cure, we've found a way
To cure this thing that's killing off the masses
Yet every hour of every day
We blow the little child away
Without ever seeing any ashes

Life's such a joy to be had
To quench the fire before it starts is sad

He gives us life, He who gave His all
He said He'll never leave you
He's there to catch you when you fall
He's the only one, you can count upon
The everlasting morning star, God's only Son

For sale for sale for sale they say
If you work real hard you'll get more pay
To buy these things and then you'll be happy
So every hour of every day
You dream of things that will pass away
And buy into a life that you feel trapped in

life is such a treasure to be had
To chase the riches of this world, is mad

He gives us life, He who gave His all
He said He'll never leave you
He's there to catch you when you fall
He's the only one, you can count upon
The everlasting morning star, God's only Son

The truth the truth the truth today
Is found in Him, The Life, The Way
The one who was before and ever after
And every hour of every day
He is the light who shows the way
To life eternal peace, joy and laughter

He raised the dead to life
He caused the blind to see
I know that I was bound
Until he set me free

He gives us life, He who gave His all
He said He'll never leave you
He's there to catch you when you fall
He's the only one, you can count upon
The everlasting morning star, God's only Son

The everlasting morning star, God's only Son
Track Name: Are You Washed
Are your garments spotless?
Are they white as snow?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?

Have you been to Jesus for the cleansing power?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?
Are you fully trusting in His grace this hour?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?

Are you washed in the blood,
In the soul cleansing blood of the Lamb?
Are your garments spotless? Are they white as snow?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?

Are you walking daily by the Savior’s side?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?
Do you rest each moment in the Crucified?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?

Are you washed in the blood,
In the soul cleansing blood of the Lamb?
Are your garments spotless? Are they white as snow?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?

When the Bridegroom cometh will your robes be white?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?
Will your soul be ready for the mansions bright,
And be washed in the blood of the Lamb?

Lay aside the garments that are stained with sin,
And be washed in the blood of the Lamb;
There’s a fountain flowing for the soul unclean,
O be washed in the blood of the Lamb!

Are you washed in the blood,
In the soul cleansing blood of the Lamb?
Are your garments spotless? Are they white as snow?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?

There is power, power, wonder working power
In the blood of the Lamb
There is power, power, wonder working power
In the precious blood of the Lamb
Track Name: The Great Exchange
My mind is often racing
My thoughts are often chasing me
Around the block I'm pacing
I don't know when to stop

Inside I'm often trying
Myself to justify at times
My thoughts are denying
this brand new life I've got

And when I am struggling in the boat
Trying to stay afloat
Straining at the oars
And the wind and the rain
comes crashing all around

The anchor that I've found lives inside me
The anchor i have now He has found me
He came walking on the water
To free me from my chains He said
"Son you really ought to make the great exchange"

I, I am the way
I, I am the truth
I, I am the life
You can never have eternal life
You'll never get to heaven unless
I, I am the way
I, I am the truth
I, I am the life
You can never have eternal life
You'll never get to heaven

The UN's concentration on
Israel's annihilation is the
Only thing most nations are
In agreement of
They don't now it's God's plan
He'll rescue every child and man
Why trust the God of Abraham
In that final day

When we will hear the trumpet shout
And He'll be coming through the cloud
Saints and Angels all around
And the enemies in their chariots
come crashing to the ground
When they look around they shall see

The Son of God they nailed upon that tree
When He came walking on the water
To free us from our chains

I am the Living Water
I am the Great Exchange
I, I am the way
I, I am the truth
I, I am the life
You can never have eternal life
You'll never get to heaven unless
I, I am the way
I, I am the truth
I, I am the life
You can never have eternal life
You'll never get to heaven
Track Name: For You
I would walk across burning desert
Bearing water to quench your thirst
Just call my name
In the time it takes to think of me
I will be there by your side
I'll be there
Call my name

Give me your hand
And I'll take you somewhere so beautiful
Give me your dreams
Together we'll make them come true
Give me the pieces
Of your heart when it's broken
I'll mend it
For you

I will carry you when you're weary
When your faith is running low
Just rest in me
I'll be there for you just believe it
Any hour any day
I'll be there
Rest in me

Give me your hand
And I'll take you somewhere so beautiful
Give me your dreams
Together we'll make them come true
Give me the pieces
Of your heart when it's broken
I'll mend it
I'll mend it
Oh I'll mend it
For you
Track Name: Thank You
I'm all alone, there's no-one home
There's only You and me
Nobody's talking on the phone
That's when You say to me
Come sit down, come tell me
You know I came to set you free from that burden
That will take you down

And I say thankyou
Thankyou for the blood you shed for me
I thankyou Lord for dying on that tree to save me
From now I'll live with You inside of me
Thank You

It's oh so loud this party crowd
As far as the eye can see
All scrambling for that "Great night out"
And wishing they could meet
With someone, who'll love them
With whom they can be free
From burdens that get them down

And I say thank you
Thank you for the blood that you shed for me
Thank you Lord for dying on that tree to save me
From now I'll live with you eternally

Now that you've saved me
Your grace and love enables me
To be the salt and light and point them to that tree
To say it's You and You alone
that sets us free from slavery
With all my heart I humbly bend my knee
Thank You
Track Name: Christ The Solid Rock
My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness;
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly lean on Jesus’ name

On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand,
All other ground is sinking sand

When darkness veils His lovely face,
I rest on His unchanging grace;
In every high and stormy gale,
My anchor holds within the veil

His oath, His covenant, His blood
Support me in the whelming flood;
When all around my soul gives way,
He then is all my hope and stay

When He shall come with trumpet sound,
Oh, may I then in Him be found;
Dressed in His righteousness alone,
Faultless to stand before the throne
Track Name: Fear Not (Instrumental)
Instrumental
