TESTIFY

January 4, 2020—

The Project 95 name refers to the first two verses of Psalm 95:

“Come, let us sing joyfully to the LORD; cry out to the rock of our salvation. Let us come before him with a song of praise, joyfully sing out our psalms.”

Ps. 95:1–2

Today’s song of the day expresses the same spirit as the beginning of Psalm 95: NEEDTOBREATHE’s “TESTIFY.”

Give me your heart

Give me your song

Sing it with all your might

Come to the fountain and

You can be satisfied

As we enjoy the weekend, let us examine the presence of God in our lives this past week, and prepare to sing joyfully to the Lord in church on Sunday.

Thanks for listening.


Here are the lyrics in full:

Give me your heart
Give me your song
Sing it with all your might
Come to the fountain and
You can be satisfied
There is a peace, there is a love
You can get lost inside
Come to the fountain and
Let me hear you testify

Into the wild, canyons of youth
Oh, there's a world to fall into
Weightless we'll dance
Like kids on the moon
Oh, I will give myself to you
As soon as you start to let go

Give me your heart
Give me your song
Sing it with all your might
Come to the fountain and
You can be satisfied
There is a peace, there is a love
You can get lost inside
Come to the fountain and
Let me hear you testify

Wave after wave
As deep calls to deep
Oh, I will build my mystery
As soon as you start to let go

Give me your heart
Give me your song
Sing it with all your might
Come to the fountain and
You can be satisfied
There is a peace, there is a love
You can get lost inside
Come to the fountain and
Let me hear you testify
There is a peace, there is a love
You can get lost inside
Come to the fountain and
Let me hear you testify

Mist on the mountain
Rising from the ground
There's no denying beauty makes a sound
We can't escape it
There's no way to doubt
Mist on the mountain
Rising all around

Give me your heart
Give me your song
Sing it with all your might
Come to the fountain and
You can be satisfied
There is a peace, there is a love
You can get lost inside
Come to the fountain and
Let me hear you testify
There is a peace, there is a love
You can get lost inside
Come to the fountain and
Let me hear you testify

You can get lost inside
(You can get lost inside)
You can get lost inside
Let me hear you testify
You can get lost, you can get lost inside
Let me hear you testify
You can get lost, you can get lost inside
Let me hear you testify

Pray

January 3, 2020—

In the difficult times of our lives, it can be difficult to feel God’s presence and move closer to him. As a call to prayer throughout each day, today’s song of the day is Sanctus Real’s “Pray.”

I’ve failed to find the time

But You’ve been calling out

I let the days go by

As if I could live without

But it’s gotta be here and now

I won’t be pulled away

‘Cause it’s just You and I

So let the world around us fade

As we continue in the New Year, let us strive to improve our prayer lives and keep God on our minds throughout the day—He is always listening and watching over us, even when we cannot hear Him.

Thanks for listening today.


Here are the lyrics in full:

I bow my head to pray
I don't know what to say
I'm not sure how to fix
The things I'm dealing with
I'm in a desperate place
I need to share the weight
But I just don't know how
To let it all pour out
And though I'm silent
My heart is crying
'Cause I was made to come to You

So I pray
God, I need You more than words can say
Right here in this moment
You know my heart
You know my need
You know every part of me
So even if it's just to speak Your name
I'm gonna pray

I've failed to find the time
But You've been calling out
I let the days go by
As if I could live without
But it's gotta be here and now
I won't be pulled away
'Cause it's just You and I
So let the world around us fade

As I pray
God, I need You more than words can say
Right here in this moment
You know my heart
You know my need
You know every part of me
So even if it's just to speak Your name
I'm gonna pray
I'm gonna pray

Father, I'm in a desperate place
Father, I know You can bear the weight
Father, Take me in Your arms
As I speak Your name
I lift my hands and pray
I lift my hands and pray
You know my heart
You know my need
And every single part of me
So even if it's just to speak Your name

I'm gonna pray
(You know my heart, You know my need, You know every part of me)
I'm gonna pray
(More than words, You want my life, take it as an offering)
You know my heart
You know my need
And You know every part of me
More than words
You want my life
Take it as an offering

Dream Small

January 2, 2020—

It’s important to remember that God works through us in countless little moments throughout our lives, even as we’re surrounded by grand New Year’s resolutions and plans for change. With this in mind, today’s song of the day is Josh Wilson’s “Dream Small.”

Live well

Loving God and others as yourself

Find little ways where only you can help

With His great love

A tiny rock can make a giant fall

Dream small

As we slowly head back to work and school in the wake of the Christmas season, let us remember the boundless love of God for us, delivered as a baby—and may we share that love with the world around us.

Thanks for listening today.


Here are the lyrics in full:

It's a momma singing songs about the Lord
It's a daddy spending family time the world says he cannot afford
These simple moments change the world
It's a pastor at a tiny little church
Forty years of loving on the broken and the hurt
These simple moments change the world

Dream small
Don't buy the lie you've gotta do it all
Just let Jesus use you where you are
One day at a time
Live well
Loving God and others as yourself
Find little ways where only you can help
With His great love
A tiny rock can make a giant fall
Dream small

It's visiting the widow down the street
Or dancing on a Friday with your friend with special needs
These simple moments change the world
Of course, there's nothing wrong with bigger dreams
Just don't miss the minutes on your way to bigger things, no
'Cause these simple moments change the world

So dream small
Don't buy the lie you've gotta do it all
Just let Jesus use you where you are
One day at a time
Live well
Loving God and others as yourself
Find little ways where only you can help
With His great love
A tiny rock can make a giant fall
So dream small

Keep loving
Keep serving
Keep listening
Keep learning
Keep praying
Keep hoping
Keep seeking
Keep searching
Add up the small things and watch them grow bigger
The God who does all things makes oceans from rivers

So dream small
Don't buy the lie you've gotta do it all
Just let Jesus use you where you are
One day at a time
Live well
Loving God and others as yourself
Find little ways where only you can help
With His great love
A tiny rock can make a giant fall
Yeah, five loaves and two fish can feed them all
So dream small
Dream small

Day One

January 1, 2020—

It’s a New Year, a new decade, and the start of Project 95. That means there’s one clear choice for today’s song of the day: Matthew West’s “Day One.”

Well, every single day Your grace reminds me

That my best days are not behind me

Wherever my yesterday may find me

Well, I don’t have to stay there

As we begin this year, let us remember that we are not who we were yesterday—we are redeemed by Christ, and each new day is a chance to turn away from the past and set out on the path He’s prepared for us.

Thanks for listening today, and happy New Year.


Here are the lyrics in full:

Well, I wish I had a short term memory
Wish the only thing my eyes could see
Was the future burning bright right in front of me
But I can't stop looking back

Yeah I wish I was a perfect picture of
Somebody who's never not good enough
Well I try to measure up but I mess it up
And I wish I wasn't like that

I wish I wasn't wishing anymore
Wish I could remember that nobody's keeping score
I'm tired of throwing pennies in a well
I gotta do something, here goes nothin'

It's day one of the rest of my life
It's day one of the best of my life
I'm marching on to the beat of a brand new drum
Yeah, here I come
The future has begun
Day one

Well, every single day Your grace reminds me
That my best days are not behind me
Wherever my yesterday may find me
Well, I don't have to stay there
See my hourglass is upside down
My someday soon is here and now
The clock is tickin'
And I'm so sick and tired of missing out

I wish I wasn't wishing anymore
Wish I could remember that nobody's keeping score
I'm tired of throwing pennies in a well
I gotta do something, here goes nothin'

It's day one of the rest of my life
It's day one of the best of my life
I'm marching on to the beat of a brand new drum
Yeah, here I come
The future has begun
Day one

It's day one
And here comes the sun
Every morning, every morning
Every morning, mercy's new
Every morning, every morning
I will fix my eyes on You

Every morning, every morning
Every morning, mercy's new
Every morning, every morning
Sun's coming up, the beginning has begun

Yeah!

It's day one of the rest of my life
It's day one of the best of my life
I'm marching on to the beat of a brand new drum
Yeah, here I come
The future has begun
Day one

It's day one of the rest of my life
It's day one of the best of my life
I'm marching on to the beat of a brand new drum
Yeah, here I come
The future has begun
Day one

I'm starting over, I'm starting over
Starting over, I'm starting over
Starting now, I'm starting over
I'm starting over,
Starting over, I'm starting over
Starting now, I'm starting over
