Nothing Can Touch Me

Nothing Can Touch Me

Lyrics & Music: Greg Cooper
© 2015 Rhinoceros Music Publishing

I had walked all I could
All my strength came to an end
All my ways – they have their place
But nothing I can do meets the strength of you

I had lost the fire inside
I was paralysed with fear
But in the noise I hear your voice
Though I cannot see
You’re still here with me

So nothing can touch me now
Oh nothing can touch me now
Whatever may come near
You’re stronger than all of it
So nothing can touch me now

I have been here before
Still each time it’s just as hard
So tear apart this doubting heart
And rebuild it please
With a trust that sees

That nothing can touch me now
Oh nothing can touch me now
Whatever may come near
You’re stronger than all of it
So nothing can touch me now

So nothing can touch me now
Oh nothing can touch me now
Whatever may come near
You’re stronger than all of it
So nothing can touch me now
Oh nothing can touch me now
Oh nothing can touch me now

Rainy Day

Rainy Day

Lyrics & Music: Greg Cooper
© 2015 Rhinoceros Music Publishing

A rainy day is here again
Caught us by surprise again
All the plans we carefully made
Vanish in the smiles we trade

I’m here on Independence Day
Thought I might try the American way
Nashville streets are empty rows
The sky may part, but who would know?

Life is like this rainy day
Cos things will work out
Just not our way
All the scenes of madness blur
And in the end
Only smiles will be heard

Things in rain aren’t quite the same
It numbs the nerves and dulls the pain
Hopefulness is in the air
A moment for our lives to repair

Life is like this rainy day
Cos things will work out
Just not our way
All the scenes of madness blur
And in the end
Only smiles will be heard

Always here and always there
Never understanding where
Always here and always there
Never understanding where

A rainy day is here again
Caught us by surprise again

Take One Step

Take One Step

Lyrics & Music: Marcella Levy/Greg Cooper

I’m sitting by your bed, feel the wisdom running through your hands
I try to hear the words you breathe so I can understand
Life has been your friend, but the time for you to go is near
There’s so much you could say, but you whisper what I need to hear

Listen well, my child
Listen well, my child

Take one step into the sea of doubt
You’re gonna hear fear coming, you’re gonna hear it shout
But it’s got nothing on you
If you don’t want it to
Just one step
And little by little that sea will part

You said you want to make a start but you don’t want to fall
Well if you never take a chance, you’ll never have a chance at anything at all
Cos there’s something in this life that you – and only you – can beautifully do
We all see your light but the key to turn it on is you

Listen to it, child

Take one step into the sea of doubt
You’re gonna hear fear coming, you’re gonna hear it shout
But it’s got nothing on you
If you don’t want it to
Just one step, just one step
And little by little that sea will part

Fire starts with the slightest glow
Fan those flames, don’t give them up now
Don’t let them go
Cos this is a dream that you’ve grown
You’ve gotta let it flow
You’ve gotta let it flow right now

Rivers and rocks are gonna make the journey hard
But they will sharpen you in time and give your light a brighter spark
Oh the brightest spark

Take one step into the sea of doubt
You’re gonna hear fear coming, you’re gonna hear it shout
But it’s got nothing on you
If you don’t want it to
Just one step, just one step
And little by little that sea will part

The Sculptor

The Sculptor

Lyrics & Music: Greg Cooper

How much of me is the same man as five years ago – as yesterday?
How could I still have the same skin, but feel like a new man inside?
How much of me has the same ears and the same eyes as two thousand and five?

Cos things that I see
And words that I hear
Feel different to back then

I couldn’t have changed that much
But I have
I couldn’t have left the things I wanted back then
But time has refined it all
Like a sculptor is shaping my heart
Like a sculptor is shaping my heart

How much of me is still getting it wrong
On the narrow road to getting it right?
How could I hurt you that way back then
When I wouldn’t dream of doing it now?
Why did I test out the limits of love on that Monday night
Or that moment right now?

Cos things that I see
And words that I hear
Feel different to back then

I couldn’t have changed that much
But I have
I couldn’t have left the things I wanted back then
But time has refined it all
Like a sculptor is shaping my heart

And couldn’t be living in love
But I am
And I couldn’t be breathing in your infinite grace
But time has confirmed it all
That a sculptor is shaping my heart

Knowing what I now do
Living with your light on sin
Still I can’t believe it
Somehow I was welcomed in
You pulled me up off the street side
You gave me everything
I was dead but I was spared

I couldn’t be changing that much
But I am
I couldn’t be leaving things I wanted back then
But time is refining it all
Like a sculptor is shaping my heart

 And couldn’t be living in love – but I am
I couldn’t be breathing in your infinite grace
But time is confirming it all
That a sculptor is shaping my heart
Yeah The Sculptor is shaping my heart

Strength of My Heart

Strength of My Heart

Lyrics & Music: Greg Cooper/Mike Begbie
© 2013 Rhinoceros Music Publishing/Mike Begbie

Inspired by Psalm 73

Today my flesh has failed
Is the fight to follow Jesus labour spent in vain?
I know the shame of sin
Will I look back to the cross where forgiveness never ends?

I hear my restless soul
Will I cry “You are on high, and forever in control!”?
I hold so many fears
Will I silence them with faith in your promise to stay near?

Enlighten these eyes to see

You are the strength of my heart forever
You are solid ground and the peace when I surrender
You are the strength of my heart forever
Father – safe and sure
Is the refuge I have found in you

Today my heart beats pain
Will the hope of vanished tears truly be my soul’s refrain?
My life is poured away
Will I walk on in your power, as I wait another day?

Enlighten these eyes to see

You are the strength of my heart forever
You are solid ground and the peace when I surrender
You are the strength of my heart forever
Father – safe and sure
Is the refuge I have found in you

All of my sin
Every sorrow
All of my soul
I bring it to you

All of my fears
Every heartbeat
All of my life
I give it to you

You are the strength of my heart forever
You are solid ground and the peace when I surrender
You are the strength of my heart forever
Father – safe and sure
Is the refuge I have found in you

Feeling Goodbye

Feeling Goodbye

Lyrics & Music: Greg Cooper
© 2013 Rhinoceros Music Publishing

You were that one of a kind
Light found a home in your eyes

I think of your home
The warm winter fire
Peacefulness sailed through the sky
It sailed through the sky

But this is our time for saying goodbye
I’m all out of words
But I’m feeling goodbye
I’m feeling goodbye

It’s been a year since I’ve cried
Time has slowed down
And so have the tides

I hear your words in my head
Why can’t you be here instead?
Can’t you be here instead?

This is our time for saying goodbye
I’m all out of words
But I’m feeling goodbye

This is our time for saying goodbye
I’m all out of words

I forgot the words to say
I forgot the words to pray
Know that I’m feeling, I’m feeling inside

I forgot the words to pray
I forgot the words to say
Know that I’m feeling, I’m feeling inside

Our loss is heaven’s great gain
I know you’re there free of the pain

This is our time for saying goodbye
I’m all out of words
But I’m feeling goodbye

This is our time for saying goodbye
I’m all out of words
I’m feeling goodbye…

What good is the gain of this world if I give up my soul?
Show me how my life may be lost
That I might live, live for you

Let me see the cost of love to you
Let me see how much it took to save me

I will take my cross and deny myself
I will follow you again and again
In the times I stand and the times I fall
Lord, renew me again and again

What good are the moments in time
When I turn from your name?
Bring me to the foot of the cross
Bend my knees, humble me

Let me see the cost of love to you
Let me see how much it took to save me

I will take my cross and deny myself
I will follow you again and again
In the times I stand and the times I fall
Lord, renew me again and again

We will live, we will serve
For the glory of your name
You are Christ, Risen King
All your people will rejoice!

We will live, we will serve
For the glory of your name
You are Christ, Risen King
All your people hear your voice!

I will take my cross and deny myself
I will follow you again and again
In the times I stand and the times I fall
Lord, renew me again and again

I will take my cross and deny myself
I will follow you again and again
In the times I stand and the times I fall
You are grace, Lord, again and again

My Only King

My Only King

Lyrics & Music: Luke Woodhouse/Allen Salmon/Greg Cooper
© 2013 Luke Woodhouse/Free the Salmon Music/Rhinoceros Music Publishing

O Lord, find me here
Desperate, for you to hear, O Lord
There’s no place, out of sight
You know, the places I hide, O Lord
So I call out

But you know my words
Before I can speak
You search my heart
You know what I seek
You bring me strength
Where you know I am weak
In all, in all, my only King
In all, in all, in all, you’re my only King

O Lord, take my fears
In darkness you are near, O Lord
O Lord, the flood of tears
In grief, you meet me here, O Lord
And I call out

But you know my words
Before I can speak
You search my heart
You know what I seek
You bring me strength
Where you know I am weak
In all, in all, my only King
In all, in all, in all …

No present or past, nor life or death
Can come between, the Lord my King
No power of man, no height nor depth
Can come between, the Lord my King
Can come between, the Lord my King

You know my words
You search my heart
You bring me strength
In all in all my only king
In all in all in all…

Because you know my words
Before I can speak
You search my heart
You know what I seek
You bring me strength
Where you know I am weak
In all, in all, my only king
In all, in all, in all…

No present or past, nor life or death
Can come between, the Lord my King
No power of man, no height nor depth
Can come between, the Lord my King
Can come between, the Lord my King

The Way Home

The Way Home

Lyrics & Music: Greg Cooper
© 2013 Rhinoceros Music Publishing

Day in, day out
I’m feeling the Fall
Wrong words, wrong turn
The mess of it all

Breathe in, breathe out
The phrasing of life
Stranded nowhere
I search for the Light

You might just know
The way home
So I’ll run into your arms

Some days, some way
I’m pulled through the flames
Then darkness, like a prowling lion
It hauls me away

Good days, good ways
Rise early to pray
Quiet mind, quiet soul
My heart starts to say…

You might just know
The way home
So I’ll run into your arms

You might just know
The way home
So I’ll run into your arms

I give you my heart, I give you my soul
Though I know it has taken some time
I give you my heart, I give you my soul
Though I’m scared I may wander again
I will soon put a face to you name

You might just know
The way home

I Don't Know

I Don’t Know

Lyrics & Music: Greg Cooper/Andrew Judd/Alanna Rodgers/Trent Prees

Your world is crying out for change
Darkness smothers light by day
I weep and pity weighs on me
I weep but cannot see my place

I don’t know the ways you’ll choose to work
You may send me to the ends of earth
Help me to hear the call to go there
Guide me great Jehovah, God

Worship worth your name brings pain
Hope worth living for sustains
The time to step in faith is here
May I not flinch to count it joy

I don’t know the ways you’ll choose to work
You may send me to the ends of earth
Help me to hear the call to go there
Guide me great Jehovah, God

May I not be consumed by the things of this world
May I live all my life in worship
May I not so fear death that I die to this cause
May I live all my life in worship
Every beat of my heart in worship
Every beat of my heart …

I don’t know the ways you’ll choose to work
You may send me to the ends of earth
Help me to hear the call to go there
Guide me great Jehovah, God

I don’t know the ways you’ll choose to work
You may send me to the ends of earth
Help me to hear the call to go there
Guide me great Jehovah, God

You Will Return

You Will Return

Lyrics & Music: Greg Cooper
© 2013 Rhinoceros Music Publishing

He came as a child
Darkness covered the sky
Alone hung a star
It pointed the wise men to him

Under that light
The Light of the world lay his head
Restless and real
This baby would now be our King
Now be our King

So on this day we will stand
In certain hope
That you will come again
We will watch, and we will wait
You will return

The child grew up
He taught in the temple for years
Few would believe
And many were angry in fear

“Who is this man,
This man who claims to be God?”
Walking on water
And feeding five thousand with ease
Feeding our needs

So on this day we will stand
In certain hope
That you will come again
We will watch, and we will wait
You will return

So on this day we will stand
In certain hope
Of future promised land
We will watch, and we will wait
You will return

Immanuel
You were God here with us
And though you arose
The Counsellor stayed here in us

When you return
In glory and honour and power
Lord God Almighty
The nations will raise up your name
Raise up your name

So on this day we will stand
In certain hope
That you will come again
We will watch, and we will wait
You will return

So on this day we will stand
In certain hope
Of future promised land
We will watch, and we will wait
You will return
We will watch, and we will wait
You will return
