The One (1997) I'm searchin' for somethin' real to me, I'm searchin' for nothin' that I see They say there's nothin' out there, They say that I'll go nowhere But I say... hey, I say... Chorus I want to know You better, Lord I want nothing less, nothing more I want to know you better... There's nothing new under the sun, nothing that hasn't already been done There's nothing new under the sun, Lord, I want to know the One Who made the land, who made the sea; who gave me life and now watches me From the tiny bird to the mountain, the desert refreshed by a fountain He made it all, it all is His, and He gives the life that I now live That made me, that formed me to be; that caught me, brought me to my knees I can not believe You loved me, hung on the cross thinkin' of me But now I sit here knowing the One who's known me the best since my life begun Words & Music: Greg Campbell Copyright © 1997 Greg Campbell.

Heart Of Mine (2001) Sometimes I feel so misunderstood Every word, every thought that comes from my mouth Is no good Can you ever cleanse this trash heap? Can you ever make me clean? Oh Lord, I give my life to you What a lonely feelin' this is I have just hurt the ones I love My heart did not mean it But now I can't repeat it Oh Lord, please cleanse my heart of mine chorus Oh Lord, I give you my heart - Please take and make it Yours Oh Lord, I want to see - The changes that you bring I give you everything I am so tired of feelin' this way Like I have somehow let you down I give you my heart I need to let you do your part Please cleanse this heart of mine I don't want this to end here My life for you just in a song Please change my heart, Lord And let my words speak for You Oh Lord, I give my life to You Words & Music: Greg Campbell Copyright © 2001 Greg Campbell.

Wretched Man (1998) There's a war inside of me And I am the enemy It seems to take control And it's starting to take its toll You said, "Be Holy, 'cause I AM" I try, but I am just a man How can I bear the weight Of this one very tall command CHORUS Thanks be to God our Savior, Through Jesus Christ our Lord Thanks be to God our Savior Through Jesus Christ my Lord and King What a wretched man I am Fallin' down on my face again Who can save me from this mess I'm in I don't wanna be here again How many times I've said I won't Just to turn around and choke On my own words killin' me Oh, I just want to be set free Words & Music: Greg Campbell Copyright © 1998 Greg Campbell.

Because (1999) I live because He lives I do because He did I want to spend each day Livin' like my Father lives I love because He loves I forgive because He forgave me I am because He Is and I will be forever more Livin' every day because of grace I will always remember how You treated me Forgiving everything I owed You Even though I was guilty How can I ever think to hold a grudge I have no choice but love like I've been loved I have no choice but love like I've been loved Words & Music: Greg Campbell Copyright © 1999 Greg Campbell.

The Mountain To The Sea (1995) Dancin' on the hilltops Following the mountain to the shore All the way you stop to wonder Will I see this mountain anymore? Such a calm and peaceful place You don't want to leave it but you know There will be many mountains you will see As you reach the shore you notice A wide and open raging sea "Can this be the way to go now Is this sea calling to me?" Though the waters rage around you You press on 'cause you can see There will be another mountain there for me On this path of life we go through many stormy Seas not knowing when we'll reach dry land But looking back just reminds us of where we used to be Not where we're going to be Pressing on toward the goal of our lives we will Reach that final mountain top, there with Him Following the path to heaven Stormy seas come and they go But mountains interrupt their madness A sturdy peaceful place to go There is one last mighty mountain A final mountain for your soul There will be the greatest mountain we will see Words & Music: Greg Campbell Copyright © 1995 Greg Campbell.

My Visible, See-Through Friend (2000) I can't feel your arms around me, but I know that they are there And I can't see your eyes lookin' at me, but I know they're everywhere And I can't even hear your voice, callin' out my name But deep inside my heart confirms you, and I know it just the same You speak the language of my heart, connecting with my soul And though it seems we're worlds apart, you have become my whole Life, my whole way of thinking, you cause my every move And deep inside my heart confirms you, cause my life has been made new chorus Oh, you have my heart, though I can't touch you And I know that I am yours - I feel it deep inside No storm can ever undo, the faith I have built in you My visible, see-through friend I did not get to see when you made the stars Was it all just for me, did you see so far Ahead, that I would see your face, lookin' back at me In all the things that you have made, sayin, "I have set you free!" bridge Can it be that just a man right here like me Can have a friend he can not see? Well friend I tell you that it's not these eyes that see It's the eyes of faith that have come - from seein' the things he has done Words & Music: Greg Campbell Copyright © 2000 Greg Campbell.

You Listen To Me (2001) Who when his son asks for bread Will give him a stone instead? How much more than our dirty little hearts Will the love of the Father fill our hearts And give us what we need You know the secrets, of my heart And still You call me son Just like the son wno asked for bread I come to You and I am fed You give me what I need chorus Oh, can it be? That you listen to me? I am not worthy of the love You've given me You give me all I need And You listen to me Who put the Earth, in it's place And separated the seas? And who can calm an angry storm And bring an oak tree from a seed? No, not me What is man, that you would listen To anything he says? And who am I but one lone man And yet you know me by my name And you listen to me! As I sit, down to pray Pouring out my heart I know Your ears hear every word And things may just work out that way 'Cause You listen to me Words & Music: Greg Campbell Copyright © 2001 Greg Campbell.

What I'm Askin' For (1996) Oh Lord, my God, I cry out in despair My world is crumbling, why don't you care? Why are you so far away? Lord, I need Your presence here today Lord, let me know, is it something I've done? Is it my own fault that I have been shunned? Do you hear my cries for help? Or, am I only talking to my self? As I sit and think, on these things I am reminded of Your love for me I have known Your love before And I know it doesn't change I know that what I'm asking for Has really always been the same (Repeat) Words & Music: Greg Campbell Copyright © 1996 Greg Campbell.

God Knows (1993) Sometimes things don't fall into place Sometimes nothin' seems to go your way Nothin' you're doin' seems to go right Though you're prayin' with all of your might You try your best to fix it You give it all that you got But all you get is tired It seems you just forgot that CHORUS God knows everything you're going through God knows everything you need He'll be right there just call on His name God knows you'll get what you need We want everything in the now It's just time we show some patience We know to God there is no time If we put our faith in Him, Then He'll come through We try our best to fix it We give it all that we've got But all we get is tired It seems we just forgot that Words & Music: Greg Campbell Copyright © 1993 Greg Campbell.

You Love Me (1999) I was thinkin' just the other day How incredible it is that you love me It doesn't make much sense to me The only thing that comes to mind Is that your way is not like mine I would have left so long ago I feel like I only let you down I feel like I only hear the sound Of my voice sayin', "Please forgive me!" I only want to be like You I only long for you to do The miracle of cleaning me chorus Heal me my Father I want to be completely Yours But as I sit here singin' my song I can not help but smile As I remember... You love me I think of everyone I love And how I'm acting out that love And I am glad that you're not me I try to love like you love me Completely worthy cause you made me Please help me see like I'm seen Bridge Whatever made you think That I was worth Your love? My mind can't comprehend That even though I hurt you I am completely loved Words & Music: Greg Campbell Copyright © 1999 Greg Campbell. Admin by basic music ministries. All Rights Reserved.

Hide (1999) I need to come and hide, God From everything around me Everything is drawing me To the place where I am weak I try to think of good things The pure and right and noble But then my eyes lock on to What becomes detestable... so I Chorus Hide! All I want to do is get away from the things around me Hide! They are everywhere, even showin' up inside me Hide! So I come to You, and I know you can provide me Rest... When I hide I have understood your words God Come to You when I'm feelin' tempted But my mind and body clash Goin' totally separate ways I can't believe the draw of Doin' the things I do not want to do But it seems I'll never beat it So I... I should just say bridge It is this world we live in, and the current tenant But I know the Land Lord, and he is coming to evict So... till then I'm gonna...

It's Jesus You See (1996) Casting out your nets upon the water you see That this is not an ordinary catch of the sea How can it be any other man? Whoa... It's Jesus you see In disbelief an old man stares At the man he's just seen Can't really understand his generosity How can it be any other man? Whoa... It's Jesus he's seen CHORUS Every move, Every word every thought that you choose He shines through And as you follow Him, They will say everywhere that you go Can't you see? It's Jesus you see Here in this fading hour, a life so well spent Lies waiting, looking homeward, Gonna leave this life's tent How can it be any other man? Whoa... It's Jesus you see Words & Music: Greg Campbell Copyright © 1996 Greg Campbell. Admin by basic music ministries. All Rights Reserved.

Come As You Are (1995) Come as you are, on bended knee I'll heal your scars, just come to me Though you're never deserving I am ever rewarding a contrite heart And a broken will Come as you are, not who you will be It's rough from the start, you might think that you're beat But it's not the righteous I want For I came to seek and save the lost Just come to me (bridge) I am not worthy of the cross I am not worthy of Your love I am not worthy of the cross I am not worthy of Your love (repeat) I am not worthy Come as you are, I want to be So near to your heart, just call on me I will never desert you, In my arms I will shield you from all harm Come as you are As you are, as you are Come as you are Words & Music: Greg Campbell Copyright © 1995 Greg Campbell.
