Track Name: Help Us Understand (John 1)
From Bethany He called out, “I am not the one you are waiting for,
I am not the one who is to come”

On the banks of the Jordan, you find a man dressed camel-hair
Who testifies for another, who testifies for another

In Him was life, and that life was the light of man
And that light shines in the darkness
Though we have not understood

Who is this man? Are you the prophet? Are you Elijah?
What do you say about yourself?
What do you say about yourself?

He became flesh, and he walked here among us
And with His father’s glory, brought grace and truth

I am the voice calling out in the desert

In Him was life, and that life was the light of man
And that light shines in the darkness, though we have not understood

Lord, help us understand (Lord, will you help us understand)
Track Name: ...This Temple Could Use Some Cleaning Too (John 2)
Wide is the road that I walk on
Narrow is the road I say I’m on
The Son of Man made His way back down
To find his home was full of liars and thieves
Just like me, just like me

Please, oh please let me be
You’ve wrecked this heart in me
Please oh please let me be
You’ve wrecked this heart in me

My mind has married the martyr in me
And my soul is blacker than it should be
And I pretend I’m on my knees, when I
Stand with the masses that don’t understand

Please, oh please let me be
You’ve wrecked this heart in me
Please oh please let me be
You’ve wrecked this heart in me

On and on it goes, just give me three days and I’ll go
Just give me three days and I’ll know
On and on it goes, just give me three days and I’ll know
Just give me three days and I’ll go
Track Name: Samerican Woman (John 4)
I’ve been down this road before (Rescue is locked by the door)
As I wait for the sun to rise (I’m trying to help, I’m trying to come)
I lose hope in the dark of night (Please hold on, we can make this right)

Don’t pretend I haven’t tried
Don’t pretend it’s always gonna be this way

I’m not leaving you, I’m not leaving you alone

It seems that nothing can fill this void
The cup that I fill has been emptied again
When will the stability stay and something of substance hold?

It seems that nothing can fill this void
The cup that I fill won’t be emptied again
When will my stability stay and my message hold?

Don’t pretend I haven’t tried
Don’t pretend it’s always gonna be this way

I’m not leaving you, I’m not leaving you, I’m not leaving you, I’m not leaving you alone
Track Name: Cannibal Lecture (John 6)
As dark as the night are the clouded minds around me
My words pierce the blackened-sky that falls now
And draws the harshest lines
Let the anchor fall now
Let the anchor fall now

If you take some, you must take it all
If you take some, you must take it all

Remove the veil that covers your eyes
He said, “My flesh is real food and my blood is real drink”
Remain in me. Are you crazy? Are you crazy?

If you take some, you must take it all
If you take some, you must take it all

Many have walked away
Will you leave me too?
Many have walked away
Go and leave me too

Lord, to whom shall we go?

Your word is eternal life
Track Name: Did You Just Spit On Me? (John 9)
I see You, opening up all my wounds

I see You, opening up all my wounds
Opening up all the things I hide
There you go, everything I’ve done

Everyday I hear what I am not
I hear the saddest voices
Telling me I’m nothing

Then you come, like the morning sun
Then you say, ‘While I am in this world, I am the light of it’
‘While I am in this world, I am the light of it’

You are the light
You are the light
Hallelujah
You are the light of the world
You are the light of the world
Track Name: Where the Bleep Have You Been? (John 11)
We wait for your reply
I wish that time could do the same
Where have you been?
And why have we waited for so long for you to come

Stay with me some more
Let me feel you in
Sharing in my pain

You came three days too late
I wish I could have done something
Anything for him

Where have you been?
And why have we waited for so long?

Stay with me some more
Let me feel you in
Sharing in my pain

Your faithfulness carries me through this
Your faithfulness carries me
Track Name: The Christ Abides (John 15)
There were times when we were closer,
When I wore younger man’s clothes
You the vine and I the branches
Keep me close, ‘cus I feel far too gone

Keep me by Your side
Keep me by Your side

The same love that flows in these veins
Is the same love that flows in Jesus

Remain in me
And I in You
And I in You
Track Name: Return of The King #therealone (John 20)
Well I had my doubts, When we began to run
And when she said, “Oh, they’ve taken Him.
Oh, they’ve taken my Lord away from here”

I got there first, with Peter close behind
And we examined all that wasn’t there

Woman, why do you cry? (Oh, they’ve taken Him)
Mary, (Oh my Lord)
Go and tell them I’m alive

He’s alive, my God! I’ve seen Him!
He’s alive, the tomb was empty

There is hope in calling your name
There is joy that flows through these veins
Track Name: John's Mic Drop (John 21)
Jesus did many other things as well
And if every one of them were written down,
I suppose that even the whole world
Would not have enough room for the books that would be written
