Track Name: High Places
Open the door to eternal life
Show me the real you,
Reveal before my eyes
Lord please help my disbelief,
so that I know it's you
Loving me and wanting me valley deep, I want the truth
It's all to get to the High Places
Yeah yeah

That's all let's go to the high places
And if you promise to lead I'll follow,
even on the road less traveled I'll make my boast in your good graces
Take me to the high Places
Yeah yeah

I'll let you save me from a dark and cold end.
I want you to increase my faith,
especially if that means your glory in the end
I won't dread the terror by night,
nor the hand of the man who plans to kill
Lead the way and I'll go glady,
I believe your promise is real
Take me to the high places
Yeah yeah

He's the good Shepherd
My protector
He defeats my foes along the way
The lifter of my head,
my refuge,
my all and all Jesus saves

And if you promise to lead I'll follow
Track Name: Calling Called (Bonus)
I press toward
The mark of
The high calling
I'm called

Good morning day to day downs.
Sorrow & suffering, thanks for your company.
The tyranny this journey brings threatens my heart with despair.
But I know the prize that shines ahead.
Sweet freedom in the distance, I wanna feel it in my system.

I don't worry
I don't carry the load
I press toward
The mark of
The high calling
I'm called

Whats up day to day frowns?
And the gray you bring, bestowed by forces who hate me.
The enemy between the sheets
Threatens my life with disease
& he's happy to be a burden to the heavy loaded but
There's freedom in the distance
Dontcha wanna feel it in your system

My name
Be changed
Once up
Up Top
On the way
God's speed
Don't stop
Fill me to the core
(& I'll lead a revolution) in your name
Ill Tell the world how (you made me beautiful)
Beauty for ashes,
U called me, U sought me
So everyday I'll give a Lil more
Its what the uphill battle requires
I'm happy
I don't worry
I don't carry the load
I press toward
The mark of the high calling
I'm called
