LYRICS

Rise Above

By Damara Melissa

Confusion, heavy on my soul

I’ve never, been in this place before

I can’t see your hand

Don’t understand Your plan

 

I’m speaking, all my words fall short

My heart breaks, I feel misunderstood

I will hold onto Your truth

I know You will see me through

 

I will rise above the ashes

To the place where You are found

I will brave the stormy waters

You’re my anchor to the ground

 

You hear me, before I speak a word

You know me, I’m hidden I’m secure

You lift my head up high

Help me see through Your eyes

 

Your ways, still a mystery

But You’re weaving a beautiful tapestry

Yeah I’m ready to fight the fight

With the strength You forged through fire

 

I will rise above the ashes

To the place where You are found

I will brave the stormy waters

You’re my anchor to the ground

I will stand firm in the battle

Cause I know that You have won

I will rise to see You’re working

For Your glory and my good

Ooooh

 

High above it all

I see Your face

And it’s beautiful

 

High above it all

I’m in Your peace

And it’s beautiful

 

Where I Wanna Be

By Damara Melissa

I’ve got nothing left to give

I’ve tried to be, everything

Life is full but I’m empty

Out of wishes, out of dreams

 

Is this right where you want me?

Lord I surrender all to you

 

You bring me to the edge of me

Test everything that I believe, oh you

Are showing who you are, and who you’re making me

Without you I am not enough

But I’m complete within your love, Oh God

Right where you want me, is where I wanna be

 

Now I know all that you require

Is that I’d be found, at your feet

And to know that as your masterpiece

You’re working broken, out of me

 

Yeah it’s right where you want me, so

Lord I surrender all to you

 

You bring me to the edge of me

Test everything that I believe, oh you

Are showing who you are, and who you’re making me

Without you I am not enough

But I’m complete within your love, Oh God

Right where you want me, is where I wanna be

 

Your strength is perfected in the weakest parts of me

Not my will but yours be done, there’s no place I’d rather be

There’s no place I’d rather be, Woahhhh

 

You bring me to the edge of me

Test everything that I believe, oh you

Are showing who you are, and who you’re making me

Without you I am not enough

But I’m complete within your love, Oh God

Right where you want me, is where I wanna be

Oh God, right where you want me

Is where I wanna be

BRAVE

by Damara Melissa

Verse 1

Trapped in my fear, held by self-doubt

You whisper child, don’t be so down

Lift up my head, sing me a chorus

You have a plan, I have a purpose

 

Chorus 1

Oh I can do, what you call me to

You make me brave, you make me brave

In the darkest night, I will stand and fight

Cuz You light my way, you light my way

You make me brave, you make me brave

You make me brave, you make me

Verse 2

You shower me, with love and kindness

I surrender my heart, you shatter the darkness

Call me to go, use all I’m given

Tell ‘em we can be free, from every prison

 

Chorus 2

Oh I can do, what you call me to

You make me brave, you make me brave

When I face the night, I will stand for what’s right

Cause You make a way, you make a way

And you make me brave, you make me brave

You make me brave, you make me brave

And you make me brave, you make me brave

You make me brave, you make me

 

Bridge

For the joy you saw ahead, you braved the cross for me

Thank you Jesus for the truth, and the way it sets me free

 

Chorus 3

Oh I can do, what you call me to

You make me brave, you make me brave

When the night is long, I will sing your song

Cause you are the way, you’re the only way

And you make me brave, you make me brave

You make me brave, you make me brave

And you make me brave, you make me brave

You make me brave, you make me BRAVE

Burdens

by Damara Melissa

Verse 1  

The world has tried to offer me  

Many pleasures, much to gain  

But it’s never given me  

A good place, to take my pain  

 

PreChorus  

Take my pain, take it all  

  

Chorus  

l’ll lay my burdens at the cross  

I’ll lay my burdens at the cross  

All my pain for all your love  

I’ll lay my burdens at the cross  

  

Verse 2  

Lord you walked upon the earth  

Felt our hurt, cried our tears  

And when we call upon your name  

You are present, you are near  

  

Prechorus  

So take my pain, take it all  

  

Bridge  

When it all crumbles down  

That’s where you’ll find me  

Head hung and heart bowed   

I’ll be down on my knees  

Soaking up the grace that falls  

Blood, tears and all   

Oh I give you my all  

You meet me where I am   

Hold my heart in your hands  

With a lovely melody, sing over me  

I’m hidden in your love, your grace is enough  

A New Day

by Damara Melissa

Verse 1 

These days, it isn’t hard to see 

The world is broken, the world’s in need 

These days, it’s hard to breathe 

And if I’m honest, I’m weary I’m weak 

 

Pre-chorus 

Though the chaos, and the noise 

Threaten to drown out the melody 

There’s a song in my bones 

Singing of a coming king 

 

Chorus 

He will wipe away, every tear from our eyes 

He will break the dawn, with a new sunrise 

These days, will come to an end 

And He will usher in a new day 

 

Verse 2 

We know the world is fallen 

But we have a hope that’s risen 

He is working in the darkest moments 

To usher in a new day 

 

Pre-chorus 

Ohhhhh, there’s a song in my bones 

Singing of a coming king 

And it’s ringing out above the noise 

Singing he will change everything 

Ohhhhhhhh 

 

Bridge 

While we wait, let us pray for restoration 

Let us pray, for the healing of our hearts 

While we wait, let us pray for our nations 

Until He ushers in a new day
