Deep way down deep
Way down deep down in my heart
Oh deep way down deep
Way down deep down in my heart

I’ve got the love of Jesus
I’ve got the love of Jesus
I’ve got the love of Jesus
And it’s deep down in my heart

Deep way down deep
Way down deep down in my heart
Oh deep way down deep
Way down deep down in my heart

I’ve got the peace of Jesus

Deep way down deep
Way down deep down in my heart
Oh deep way down deep

Deep down in my heart

I’ve got the love of Jesus
I’ve got the peace of Jesus
I’ve got the joy of Jesus
Deep down in my heart
Deep down in my heart
Deep down in my heart

Peace, bring it all to peace
The storms surrounding me
Let it break at Your name

Still, call the sea to still
The rage in me to still
Every wave at Your name

Jesus, Jesus, You make the darkness tremble
Jesus, Jesus, You silence fear
Jesus, Jesus, You make the darkness tremble
Jesus, Jesus

Breathe, call these bones to live
Call these lungs to sing
Once again, I will praise

Jesus, Jesus, You make the darkness tremble
Jesus, Jesus, You silence fear
Jesus, Jesus, You make the darkness tremble
Jesus, Jesus

Your name is alive forever lifted high
You name cannot be overcome

Jesus, Jesus, You make the darkness tremble
Jesus, Jesus, You silence fear
Jesus, Jesus, You make the darkness tremble
Jesus, Jesus

Here and now I’m in the fire in above my head
Being held under the pressure
Don’t know what will be left
But it’s here in the ashes
I’m finding treasure

He’s making diamonds diamonds
He’s making diamonds out of dust
He is refining and in His timing
He’s making diamonds out of us

I’ll surrender to the power of being crushed by love
‘Til the beauty that was hidden isn’t covered up
Oh it’s not what I hoped for
It’s something much better

He’s making diamonds diamonds
He’s making diamonds out of dust
He is refining and in His timing
He’s making diamonds out of us

Oh the joy of the Lord
It will be my strength
When the pressure is on
He’s making
He’s making

Oh the joy of the Lord
It will be my strength
When the pressure is on
He’s making
He’s making

Oh the joy of the Lord
It will be my strength
When the pressure is on
He’s making
He’s making

He’s making diamonds diamonds
Making us rise up from the dust
He is refining and in His timing
He’s making diamonds out of dust
Making diamonds out of us

I won’t be afraid to shine
I won’t be afraid to shine
I won’t be afraid to shine

‘Cuz He’s making diamonds out of dust

11 AM Worship Song Lyrics

Joyful joyful we adore thee
God of glory Lord of love
Hearts unfold like flowers before thee
Opening to the sun above
Melt the clouds of sin and sadness
Drive the dark of doubt away
Giver of immortal gladness
Fill us with the light of day

All thy works with joy surround thee
Earth and heaven reflect thy rays
Stars and angels sing around thee
Center of unbroken praise
Field and forest vale and mountain
Flowery meadow flashing sea
Chanting bird and flowing fountain
Call us to rejoice in thee

Thou art giving and forgiving
Ever blessing ever blest
Wellspring of the joy of living
Ocean depth of happy rest
Thou our Father Christ our brother
All who live in love are thine
Teach us how to love each other
Lift us to the joy divine

Mortals join the mighty chorus
Which the morning stars began
Love divines reigning o’er us
Binding all within its span
Ever singing march we onward
Victors in the midst of strife
Joyful music lifts us sunward
In the triumph song 0f life

Change my heart O God
Make it ever true
Change my heart O God
May I be like you

You are the potter
I am the clay
Mold me and make me
This is what I pray

Change my heart O God
Make it ever true
Change my heart O God
May I be like you
