Track Name: You Are Right Here By My Side
Don’t need to be ten foot tall to be loved by you
I don’t need the biggest brain of all to be loved by you
Don’t need to be a millionaire to be loved by you
I don’t need to have spiky hair to be loved by you

Don’t need to have lots of friends to be loved by you
Don’t need to be round the bend to be loved by you
Don’t need to wear fancy shoes to be loved by you
Doesn’t matter If I win or lose I’ll still be loved by you

Don’t need to be fast don’t need to be quick
Don’t need to be cool don’t need to be slick

My Father, you are right here by my side
My father, through the day and through the night

Don’t need to learn to play guitar to be loved by you
Don’t need to have a shiny car to be loved by you
Don’t need to be the top in class to be loved by you
Doesn’t matter if I finish last, I’ll still be loved by you

You are right here by my side
Track Name: If I Zoom
If I zoom in a rocket you are there, you are there
If I swim the widest ocean you are there, you are there
If I ski down a mountain you are there, you are there
You’re everywhere, you’re everywhere with me

If I climb to the treetops you are there, you are there
If I hide in the cellar you are there, you are there
If I play in the playground you are there, you are there
You’re everywhere, you’re everywhere with me

In the darkness you are here
In the night you shine just like the sun
Make the night like afternoon
When you’re around the darkness runs away

If I float like a bubble you are there, you are there
If I run like a cheetah you are there, you are there
If I turn off all the light bulbs you are there, you are there
You’re everywhere, you’re everywhere with me

When I wake in the morning you are there, you are there
When I sleep in the evening you are there, you are there
If I wake from a nightmare you are there, you are there
You’re everywhere, you’re everywhere with me

How precious are your thoughts of me
I couldn’t count them if I tried….
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8? No, that’s not enough!
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 million? It keeps on going up!
50, 60, 70 billion! It will never stop!
There’s no end to your love
Track Name: There's Nothing You Can't Do
There’s nothing that you can’t do
You made me, you, him, her, us, them, everyone

You’re amazing
You’re so wonderful

There’s nothing you can’t make
You made the sun, stars, moon, sky, fire and lightning
Track Name: Biggest Fish
The biggest fish that swims in the ocean
The biggest fish that swims in the sea
The biggest fish and the biggest bubbles
are still smaller than your love for me

Your love, the greatest thing in the universe
Your love, the greatest thing in the whole wide world

The biggest ape that swings from the branches
The biggest ape that swings from the trees
The biggest ape that eats a banana
Is still smaller than your love for me

Great, great love
Your great love will last forever
Track Name: Little Light
This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine
This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine

Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine, let it shine!

Hide it under a bushel? NO! Let it shine
Hide it under a bushel? NO! Let it shine

Hang my head in fear and shame? No way, gonna let it shine
Let my troubles get me down? Not me, gonna let it shine
Track Name: Your Love Is Like...
Your love is like the stars that shine in the night
Your love is like rainbows over the hill
Your love is like the sun beaming down from the sky
Your love is amazing

Your love is like water falling over the rocks
Your love is like the trees reaching up to the sky
Your love is like a mountain when I get to the top
Your love is amazing

I will praise your name, your love is for free
Nothing I have done, a gift you give to me

Your love is like a birthday party with friends
Your love is like the a great big bag of sweets
Your love is like a present on Christmas day
Your love is amazing

Your love is like the birds that squawk in the trees
Your love is like leaves right up to my knees
Your love is like a snow-fall-wintery-day
Your love is amazing

You found me, love me, hold me, close to you
Track Name: Alive
Not some old and beardy guy, not someone who never smiles
You know how to play and sing because you are alive

Not a bedtime story tale slow and boring like a snail
You know who I am today because you are alive

Alive, living, now, then and forever
Alive, living, Jesus Christ eternal

Not some relic from the past on a shelf and left to rust
You know how to dance and laugh because you are alive

Not a ghost or skeleton with no breath or feeling
You know how to smile and cry because you are alive

Not dusty or far away
Out of touch, for yesterday
You’re alive, you’re in this place
With me now and always
Track Name: Super Villain
You're not some super villain trying to steal my brain
With super big plans and super big guns and totally insane
You’re not some 10 eyed monster hiding in my bed
With 10 foot tail and 10 foot eyes each one glowing red

You’re amazing, wonderful
And a true friend to me

You’re not a crazy spaceman with a laser beam
Who shoots and shouts and runs about and makes some people scream
You’re not a hairy creature running from its lair
With big sharp teeth and pointed claws who makes me s...s...scared

You’re a friend to me
You’re a friend to me
You’ll never hate and never leave
Track Name: Neither Death Nor Life
Neither death nor life nor angels or demons
The present or the future or any powers
can separate us from the love of God

And I thank you, for hearing me
And I thank you, for loving me
And I thank you for being my friend
And I thank you for being my father

Separate us?
Past or present, near or far can’t separate us
Light or darkness, cold or warmth can’t separate us
Rain or thunder, storm or sun can’t separate us
Nothing can and nothing ever will
Track Name: You Are Here With Me
I am small, I am weak, I am tiny but you are strong
I get scared, I cry sometimes but I know that you are...

Here with me, you're not going anywhere

You are big, you are strong, you are mighty all the time
You will stay by my side and I know that you are...

Here with me, you're not going anywhere

When I’m scared I’ll turn my face to you, you'll comfort me
When I laugh I'll turn my face to you, you'll smile at me
When I cry I’ll turn my face to you, you'll hold me in your arms
When I dance I’ll turn my face to you...
Track Name: Tick Tock
Tick tock goes the clock
Round and round the hours go
Time for up time for bed
Hope it’s nearly dinner time

Bing bang goes the bell
Morning night and afternoon
Seasons come and seasons go
Summer, Christmas, Easter time

I will change
Might grow big and tall
But you will never
Ever, ever change at all

Morning Still the same!
Evening Still the same!
Winter Still the same!
Summer Still the same!
Last year Still the same!
Next year Still the same!
When I’m old Still the same!
When I’m young Still the same!

Young or old or happy or sad
Tall or small or glum or glad
You will never ever change
Tick tock tick tock tick tock
Track Name: You Made Them Big
You made them big
Snorting elephant and small
Complicated beetle and big
Thundering rhino and small
Furry little field mouse and big
Thousand ton whale and small like me

You’ve counted all the hairs on my head (2,3,4)
You know me from inside out
My friend that never leaves or walks away
That’s why we sing and shout

You know me much more than anyone
Closer and deeper and wider and higher
You love me much more than anyone
Closer, deeper, wider, higher

Closer, deeper, wider higher
More than anyone
Track Name: Little Squirt
You don’t see me as a little squirt
You don’t see me as a speck of dirt
You don’t see me as a slimy slug
You don’t see me as a creepy crawly bug

You love me and you always will

You don’t see me like some hairy peas
You don’t see me like a smelly cheese
You don’t see me like blue mould bread
You don’t see me as a stinky stinky egg

You don’t see me like a rhino’s nose
You don’t see me like monkey’s toes
You don’t see me like a piggy’s ear
You don’t see me like a Billy goat’s beard

And nothing’s gonna stop that NO NO NO!
You’re never gonna leave us, NO NO NO!
Track Name: You'll Never Change
Like the day I'll go from dark to light but you'll never change

Put my trust in you
Holy holy holy Lord
Put my faith in you
You’ll always keep your word

Like the year I'll go from warm to cold but you'll never change

I will put my feet on the rock that will not move

And you love, love, love, love
And that will never change!
