About The Album

This album focuses on the simplicity of intimate worship with God.

We want to give the Lord our most honest, vulnerable selves and this album guides us into that desired heart posture before the Lord.

As a movement, Bethel Music has been brought back to this word “Simple” time and time again over the last couple of years. This project, from the lyrics and melodies to the visual landscape, has the concept of “simple” woven through it. There is something so special about simplifying our worship and focusing on our song to Him, and that is exactly what this album does.

Produced by long-time Bethel Music family member Dan MacKenzie, this project was recorded and filmed in our brand new studio located in Redding, CA. Everything you see and hear was captured in real time with no overdubs or augmentation. Our heart was to bring as real and genuine an offering as possible, and we feel confident that we have managed to accomplish just that. The intentionality of every note, lyric placement, and chord progression translates through each song, as does the tender heart of each person involved. Our prayer is that you are able to pull up a chair and soak in the beauty and authenticity of this project the way we have.

Everything changed, it’s getting harder to recognize
The person I was before I encountered Christ
I don’t walk like I used to
I don’t talk like I used to
I’ve been washed from the inside
I’ve been washed from the inside out

Hallelujah, hallelujah
I know it was the blood
Could have only been the blood

Hallelujah, hallelujah
I know it was the blood
Could have only been the blood

Hey

I cannot explain but nothing’s more real than this
In the presence of God, oh what my heart experienced
When my shame hit the wayside
And my sin met the Most High
I was washed from the inside
I was washed from the inside out

Hallelujah, hallelujah
I know it was the blood
Could have only been the blood

Hallelujah, hallelujah
I know it was the blood
Could have only been the blood

Could have only been Your blood
Oh so let it wash over
Let it wash over me, yeah, yeah (Hey, ooh-ooh-ooh)

It’s never been about performance, perfection
Or striving for acceptance
Let me tell you, it’s only by the blood
It’s never been about deserving or earning
It’s a gift that’s freely given
Let me tell you, it’s only by the blood

Does anybody want to be holy, righteous
Purified and spotless
Let me tell you, it’s only by the blood
Does anybody want to be worthy, forgiven
Justified, really living
Let me tell you, it’s only by the blood

Hallelujah, hallelujah
I know it was the blood
Could have only been the blood

Hallelujah, hallelujah
I know it was the blood
Could have only been the blood

Hey-yeah-yeah
Only been

What can I say, thank You is not enough
Jesus Your grace, Your mercy poured out for us
I will love You forever, here on earth into heaven
I’ve been washed from the inside
I’ve been washed from the inside out

Hmm (Ooh)
I’ve been washed from the inside out

Mmm
How precious, how generous
Your blood poured out for us
How precious, how generous
We remember, mmm

You paid it in full
You paid it in blood
You paid it for us, Jesus

In the landscape of my life
You don’t rush through any season
You always take Your time

A careful hand, a gentle guide
You take what’s dead away
And You prune what’s running wild

So be the gardener of my heart
Tend the soil of my soul
Break up the fallow ground
Cut back the overgrown
And I won’t shy away
I will let the branches fall
So what You want can stay
And what You love can grow

Through winter, I’m still alive
What You’ve planted in the dirt
Is ever reaching to the light

You prepare me for darkened times
You’ll sustain what You have started
And You’ll teach me to abide

Be the gardener of my heart
Tend the soil of my soul
Break up the fallow ground
Cut back the overgrown
And I won’t shy away
I will let the branches fall
So what You want can stay
And what You love can grow, grow

Have Your way in me
Have Your way in me
Let it grow, let it grow, let it grow

I’ll remain in You
You’ll remain in me
And I will trust Your timing

I’ll remain in You
You’ll remain in me
From the start until the ending
‘Cause You know better

So be the gardener of my heart
Tend the soil of my soul
Break up the fallow ground
Cut back the overgrown
And I won’t shy away
I will let the branches fall
So what You want can stay
And what You love can grow

This moment is holy and I hear You calling
I turn my face towards You and my heart is open
You’re always pursuing and my life’s surrendered
You have my affection

So let my life be worship
And let my heart stay true
May my love never grow cold
May it burn forevermore
May my life be worship to You

Oh-oh-oh
Hey

In blessing, in sorrow, in the ordinary
Whatever the cost is, You’re always worthy
My heart’s cry and my whole life is for Your glory
You have my attention

So let my life be worship
Let my heart stay true
May my love never grow cold
May it burn forevermore
Let my life be worship to You

Oh-oh
Ooh-ooh-ooh

So let it be, let it be worship
You’re the only One, only One worth it
Nothing is like You, there’s no one beside You
Only You’re worthy, You’re worthy

So let it be, let it be worship
You’re the only One, only One worth it
Nothing is like You, there is no one beside You
Only You’re worthy, You’re worthy (hey-ey-ey)

So let it be, let it be worship (Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
You’re the only One, only One worth it
Nothing is like You, there’s no one beside You
Only You’re worthy, You’re worthy

So let my life be worship
Let my heart stay true, oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
So let my life be worship
Let my heart stay true
May my love never grow cold
May it burn forevermore
Let my life be worship to You

In everything, in everything

In everything (The little things)
Dishes piled high in the kitchen sink
Let it be worship (Hey-ey-ey)
Oh You meet me in the ordinary
When I’m feeling weak
When I’m feeling tired
You find me and it’s worship (Hey, let it be, let it be, let it)
You’re the only One worthy of all my moments
All my time, all my affection, all my life (Hey-ey-ey)
Oh-oh

The Son of God
The heart of heaven
Given to us
Oh hallelujah

And oh, how gracious is the God who came to us
How wonderful and righteous is His love
Our Jesus
And oh, through the suffering and the hatred of the cross
He gathered every hope we thought was lost
Our Jesus

We are in awe
Of what love has done
You delivered us
Oh hallelujah
Oh hallelujah

I remember when I met You
The first time that I felt You
When it all was just so simple
I’d just stand in awe of You

I don’t wanna grow familiar
Let my heart stay soft and tender
When You walk into the room
My response is to stand in awe of You

Oh I stand in awe of You
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
I stand in awe of You
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
I stand in awe of You
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
I stand in awe of You (Hey)

Just to adore You is our purpose
To make Your name higher is our focus
Where we’ve made it complicated
Realign us to stand in awe of You

Oh I stand in awe of You
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
I stand in awe of You
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
I stand in awe of You
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
I stand in awe of You (Hey)

Oh I stand in awe of You
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
I stand in awe of You
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
I stand in awe of You
Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
I stand in awe of You

Hey (Oh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
Oh I stand in awe (Hey, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
Oh all blessing and honor (Ooh-oh, hey-ey-ooh)
All glory and power be unto Your name Jesus (Oh, hey)

Forever and ever
Yours is the kingdom, the power, and the glory
Yours is the kingdom, the power, and the glory
Yours is the kingdom, the power, and the glory Lord
Oh forever and ever and ever and ever

Yours is the kingdom, the power, and the glory
Yours is the kingdom, the power, and the glory
Yours is the kingdom, the power, and the glory
Oh-oh-oh

I choose to sing when I can hardly breathe out a breath
I choose to stand when all I wanna do is give up
I choose to trust when my whole world is falling apart
I choose You, Jesus

‘Cause I still believe through it all
I still believe You are wonderful
You’ve never given up on me
You’ve never given up on me

I choose to love when everything around me screams hate
I choose to heal when I have walked through sorrow and pain
I choose Your name, the only name that’s worthy of praise
I choose You, Jesus

‘Cause I still believe through it all
I still believe You are wonderful
You’ve never given up on me
‘Cause I still believe You are powerful
I still believe You do miracles
You’ve never given up on me
You’ve never given up on me
 
Yeah
Never given up on me

The world may say where is Your God
We will say He’s right here with us
The world may say where is Your God
We will say He’s right here with us

The world may say where is Your God
Oh we will say He’s right here with us
The world may say where is Your God
Oh we will say He’s right here with us

His name is Jesus, oh Jesus
His name is Jesus, Jesus

‘Cause I still believe through it all
I still believe You are wonderful
You’ve never given up on me
‘Cause I still believe You are powerful
I still believe You do miracles
You’ve never given up on me
You’ve never given up on me
You’ve never given up on me

Son of God
Carried the cross of redemption
Crown of thorns
Placed on the head of perfection

Jesus, gloria
Jesus my King

Nail-pierced hands
Scars that remind me of mercy
Arms out wide
Welcoming all who are guilty
Into the light of Your glory

Jesus, gloria
Jesus my King

Oh You are Jesus, gloria
Jesus my King

And how great the heart of the Father
How great the mercy of God
How great the price that He paid for love

How great the heart of the Father
How great the mercy of God
How great the price that He paid for love
Oh the price that He paid for love

Jesus, gloria
Jesus my King

We lay our lives down here at Your feet
To the One who’s worthy, we give everything
Oh how You love us, how can it be
No greater mercy, You gave everything

To You be all the glory, to You be all the honor
Forever be praised, forever be praised
For You alone are worthy and You alone are holy
Forever be praised, forever be praised

We bow in reverence before our King
The only sovereign, oh what majesty
We sing Your praises, how could we not
We’re filled with wonder, Lord we stand in awe

To You be all the glory, to You be all the honor
Forever be praised, forever be praised
For You alone are worthy and You alone are holy
Forever be praised, forever be praised

Be magnified, be glorified
Worthy is the Lamb, worthy is the Lamb
As one we cry, be lifted high
Worthy is the Lamb, worthy is the Lamb

Be magnified, be glorified
Worthy is the Lamb, worthy is the Lamb
As one we cry, be lifted high
Worthy is the Lamb, worthy is the Lamb

To You be all the glory, to You be all the honor
Forever be praised, forever be praised
For You alone are worthy and You alone are holy
Forever be praised, forever be praised

We lay our lives down here at Your feet
To the One who’s worthy, You gave everything

You don’t ask for perfection
So I won’t even bother pretending
I’ve been known from the start

Holding secrets is heavy
So I’ll tell You them all, Lord I’m ready
Here’s my heart, opened up

Honesty, You want honesty
Not just part of me, You want everything
So all of me, I’ll bring You all of me
No more hide and seek, Jesus I’m coming clean

You’re the One I won’t question
When my mind runs a million directions
You’re the friend I can trust

Here I am Lord, surrendered
With my hands lifted high, I’ll remember
That I’m safe with You, God
And there’s no fear in Your love

Honesty, You want honesty
Not just part of me, You want everything
So all of me, I’ll bring You all of me
No more hide and seek, Jesus I’m coming clean

Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

There is nothing in between
You and me, holy are You
Purify and make me clean
Until all of me is holy like You

There is nothing in between
You and me, holy are You
Purify and make me clean
Until all of me is holy like You, Lord
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

Honesty, You want honesty
Not just part of me, You want everything
So all of me, I’ll bring You all of me
No more hide and seek, Jesus I’m coming clean

I’ve tried my best to sustain what You started
But my back couldn’t carry the weight
So I’m tracing my steps to the moment I lost my way

I’m replacing control for surrender
In Your kindness there’s joy to repent
So I turn my eyes up to the heavens where my song began

Through every season You’ve been my strength
And with all my heart I’ll trust You, Lord
You have been faithful and You’ve been my song
With all my heart I’ll praise You, Lord

I’ve got scars on my feet from the miles
I’ve seen trouble but I’ve seen revival
I’ve seen peace overcoming the chaos with just one word

And I have walked through the valley of shadows
And sang my way through the darkest of nights
I’ve held onto Your every word and I will survive

Oh and through every season You’ve been my strength
And with all my heart I’ll trust You, Lord
‘Cause You have been faithful, You’ve been my song
And with all my heart I’ll praise You, Lord
With all my heart I’ll praise You, Lord

Hey

All You want is the simple
All You want is an honest song of praise
All You want is communion
So I’m done overcomplicating things

All You want is the simple
All You want is an honest song of praise
All You want is communion
So I’m done overcomplicating things

Through every season You’ve been my strength
And with all my heart I’ll trust You, Lord
You have been faithful and You’ve been my song
With all my heart I’ll praise You, Lord
Oh through every season You’ve been my strength
With all my heart I’ll trust You, Lord
You have been faithful, You’ve been my song
And with all my heart I’ll praise You, Lord
With all my heart I’ll trust You, Lord

Hey-ey-ey-ey-ey
With my future, oh I’ll trust You, Lord
With my family I’ll trust You, Lord
And with my children I’ll trust You, Lord
Hey-ey-ey, ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh
I will trust You, Lord
