Track Name: Come Closer
Come Closer

“After a middle of the night battle with major spiritual warfare, I started saying over and over and then singing in desperation these words, ‘Come closer, I need You to come closer’. I kept on praying and singing this for about an hour and then sat down at the piano and within thirty minutes, the song was finished. God used this song to begin my Freedom journey.” – Wayne Tester

Beautiful, so beautiful
Your love is working deep in me
Adonai, sweet Adonai
Your love is rising up in me

Come closer
I need You to come closer
I open up my heart
I open up my heart
Come closer
I need You to come closer
I want to know Your heart
I want to know Your heart
Jesus
I love Your Name, Jesus

El Shaddai, my El Shaddai
I long for You, my heart’s desire
Emmanuel, Emmanuel
My God with me, my Holy Fire

(Repeat Chorus)

You know Your plans for me
Open my eyes to see
Lord, give me victory
Abundant grace
My heart cries out to You
Your living word I trust
I need Your healing touch
I seek Your face
Come closer

(Repeat Chorus)
Track Name: That's Who I Am (Part 1 of 4)
That’s Who I Am (Part One of Four)

“After Esther and I went through the Freedom Courses I woke up in the middle of the night and started reading God’s Word. God shared with me that I needed to keep myself away from idols. I went into my studio and gathered up all my music awards and threw them in the trash. I had struggled for years with believing the lie that I had to perform to gain approval. Unbeknownst to Esther and I, we both had the same idea about putting the “Who Am I” segment to music so that we could meditate on it by singing it. So about 3 days later of us both having the same thought, I was sitting down at the piano with the book and composing some music for it when Esther walked into the studio and told me that she’d been wanting to do the same thing, so she got on the mic while I played keys and I pressed record and the music simultaneously spilled out of both of us. Afterwards, we realized that many other people might want to meditate on these truths in God’s Word using this song too. And that’s how this all got started. The song has made a huge impact on us. We are now singing God’s truths at all hours of the day and night and it’s a constant source of inspiration.” – Wayne Tester

Track Name: Eyes of Faith
Eyes Of Faith

“During a particular ‘perfect storm’ of circumstances in life, the old hymn ‘Be Thou My Vision’ popped into my head as I struggled with pride, panic attacks and anxiety. I loved the idea of combining something old with something new and the rest is history with this song. I pray it will be as much of an encouragement to others as it has for me.” – Wayne Tester

You are my vision, oh Lord of my heart
Nothing compares to You, bright Morning Star
You’re my best thought, by day and by night
Waking or sleeping, Your presence my light

You give me eyes of faith
You are my only Truth
You shine Your light so I see You
You are my guiding lamp
A lighthouse in the night
My vision now and for always
You give me eyes of faith

You are my wisdom, You are my true Word
I ever with You and You with me, Lord
You’re my great Father, and I’m Your true son
You in me dwelling, and I with You one

(Repeat chorus)

I choose to believe in Your Truth
I choose to keep my eyes on You

(Repeat Chorus)

That’s Who I Am (Part Two of Four)

“I grew up with all brothers and as a child I both enjoyed and hated being the only girl. I loved being daddy’s little princess but it seemed that as a girl, I didn’t get to participate in some of the activities my brothers got to and as a teen girl, the restrictions on where I could go by myself were a real sore spot with me. Though I understand that in the natural, those restrictions were for my own protection, I also understand that in the spirit, I’m not promised any less of an inheritance just because I’m a woman and I know full well that I’m every bit as dangerous to the devil as my spiritual brothers are. In Christ, I am like a SON and I LOVE that!” – Esther Tester

I am united to the Lord (echo)
And am one spirit with Him (echo)
I am a member of Christ’s body (echo)

I am a new creation (echo)
I am reconciled to God (echo)
And am a minister of reconciliation (echo)

I am a son of God (echo)
And one in Christ (echo)
I am an heir of God (echo)
Since I am a son of God (echo)

I am a saint (echo)
I am God’s workmanship (echo)
His handiwork (echo)
Born anew in Christ to do His work (echo)

I am a fellow citizen (echo)
With the rest of God’s family (echo)
I am a prisoner of Christ (echo)
I am righteous and holy (echo)

(All sing)
I am not the great “I am”
But by the grace of God, I am what I am
I am not the great “I am”
But by the grace of God, I am what I am
I am not the great “I am”
But by the grace of God, I am what I am
I am not the great “I am”
But by the grace of God, I am what I am

That’s who I am (echo)
That’s who I am (echo)
That’s who I am (echo)

Track Name: We Choose Life (feat. The Katinas)
We Choose Life

“Words have a powerful effect on us, either for the good or for the bad. We’ve lived with believing this world’s lies far too long. We wanted to put a stake in the ground and say, ‘we choose life instead of death’. We wanted this song to be a unified declaration between us all to sing together, ‘We Choose Life’.” – Wayne and Esther Tester

You are near us now
We will follow You
You give life and love
All Your ways are true
We will walk with You
And keep Your commands
So that You may bless
With Your faithful hands

We choose life, we choose life
We love You Lord our God
And place our faith in You
We turn away from sin to know what is true
We choose life, we choose life

May we grow in love
And know more of You
You’re our help and guide
You’re the way and truth
As we turn to You
As we listen now
May Your holy Word
In our hearts resound

(Repeat Chorus)

Your holy Word renews our minds
Transformed, we are made new in Christ
We walk by faith and not by sight
And by Your Spirit, not by our might

(Repeat Chorus)

“Even though my flesh is in a process of sanctification, my spirit will never be any more perfect than it became at the moment when I was seven years old when Jesus and I became one. I love to close my eyes and see myself seated in Heaven because truth be told, that’s actually where I am… right now. You see, when David wrote my favorite Psalm, Psalm 84, which I affectionately call ‘The Banana Psalm’ because it’s the perfect food, David was talking about where he actually was, in the dwelling place of God, not some place He wished He was. We can come boldly before the throne of God because we’re already there. We are not guests in His house, we live there, right now. Let that just blow your mind for a minute...” – Esther Tester

I am a citizen of heaven (echo)
Seated in heaven right now (echo)
I am hidden with Christ in God (echo)

I’m an expression of the life of Christ (echo)
Because He is my life (echo)
I am chosen of God, holy and dearly loved (echo)

I am a son of light (echo)
And not of darkness (echo)
I am a holy partaker (echo)
Of a heavenly calling (echo)

I’m a partaker of Christ (echo)
I share in His life (echo)
I am one of God’s living stones (echo)
Being built up in Christ as a spiritual house (echo)

I am a member (echo)
Of a chosen race (echo)
A royal priesthood (echo)
A holy nation (echo)
A people for God’s own possession (echo)

(All sing)
I am not the great “I am”
But by the grace of God, I am what I am
I am not the great “I am”
But by the grace of God, I am what I am
I am not the great “I am”
But by the grace of God, I am what I am
I am not the great “I am”
But by the grace of God, I am what I am

That’s who I am (echo)
That’s who I am (echo)
That’s who I am (echo)
That’s who I am (echo)
Track Name: Living In Colour
Living In Colour

“I was unhappy and I couldn’t figure out why. So I went on vacation thinking that would replenish my smile… but it didn’t. So as I was completely miserable walking along Florida’s beach voted ‘most beautiful in the nation’, I read Proverbs 27:20 and I realized that as long as my desires didn’t line up with God’s, I would never be happy. I changed that day. Everything changed that day.” – Esther Tester

Desire is like the grave
It can’t be satisfied
Soulsick to pierce the grey
Searching for truth in lies

My spirit cries out loud
And defies my fear and doubt

Praise the Lord, oh my soul
All my inmost being, praise Your Holy Name
Praise the Lord, oh my soul
Every part of me is now a different shade
Living in colour
Now I’m living in colour

Arise, o’ dawn of day
With my new song of light
Above the clouds of grey
The sun defies the night

I’m waking from the lies
Truth has opened up my eyes

(Repeat Chorus)

I will live, I will live by the Spirit of God
I am His, I am His, purchased by His blood
I believe, I believe I’m on eagle’s wings
I receive, I receive, I am free to sing
(repeat)

(Repeat Chorus 2x’s)

“Wayne and I are sci-fi junkies. We actually have enough Star Trek ornaments to cover an entire Christmas tree. So the fact that we are aliens in this world really strikes a fun chord with us. But on a serious note, it helps us to put things in perspective, especially when it comes to politics. We can get so wound up about being a good patriot that we can forget where our permanent citizenship actually is… in Heaven. How are we being a good patriot of our ‘mother country’ right here and right now… in this temporary world?” – Esther Tester

I am an alien (echo)
And stranger to this world (echo)
In which I temporarily live (echo)

I am an enemy of the devil (echo)
I am a child of God (echo)
And I will resemble Christ when He returns (echo)

I am born of God (echo)
And the evil one cannot touch me (echo)
No, the devil cannot touch me (echo)

(All sing)
I am not the great “I am”
But by the grace of God, I am what I am
I am not the great “I am”
But by the grace of God, I am what I am
I am not the great “I am”
But by the grace of God, I am what I am
I am not the great “I am”
But by the grace of God, I am what I am

That’s who I am (echo)
That’s who I am (echo)
That’s who I am (echo)
That’s who I am (echo)
Track Name: Standing Stronger
Standing Stronger

“We all come to a point in life when we need to put a stake in the ground. This is that song. ‘Nuf said.” – Wayne and Esther Tester

Your divine power
Has given me all that I need
To live a life of godliness
‘Cause I know You, the One who made me

You called me by Your glory
You called me by Your goodness
You’ve given me a story
Makes me wanna sing

I’m standing stronger
Than I could ever stand on my own
Here in Your power
There’s nothing that I can’t overcome
When I’m standing in the power of Your love

Every hour
You’re giving me all that I need
To live a life of holiness
Oh, I love You, the One who made me

You called me by Your glory
You called me by Your goodness
You’ve given me a story
Makes me wanna sing

(Repeat Chorus)

You called me by Your glory
You called me by Your goodness
You’ve given me a story
Makes me wanna sing
(repeat)
Makes me wanna sing

(Repeat Chorus)

When I’m standing in the power of Your love
Track Name: Ever Present God (Psalm139)
Ever Present God (Psalm 139)

“I feel a kinship to King David, author of the psalms, because it was more natural for him to sing about God than to speak about him. I hope that as you sing this psalm that you will recapture some of the original ‘heart’ of David, the man after God’s own heart.” – Wayne Tester

Oh Lord, You have searched me and known me
You know when I lay down and when I rise up
And from heaven You discover my thoughts
You observe my wanderings and my dreaming
You are aware of all my ways

Before a word is on my tongue, You know all about it, Lord
You have encircled me; You have placed Your hand on me
This extraordinary knowledge is beyond me
It is higher; I am unable to reach it

Where can I hide to escape Your Spirit
Where can I flee from Your presence
If I climb to the sky, You are there
If I go underground, You are there
If I live at the eastern horizon or settle at the western limits
Even there Your hand will lead me
Your right hand would hold on to me

If I say, “Let the darkness hide me
And let the light around me turn into night”
Even in darkness I cannot hide from You
To You the night shines bright as day
Darkness and light are the same to You

You are the One who created my deepest parts
You formed me in my mother’s womb
I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made
Your works are miraculous
And my soul knows it very well

My bones were not hidden from You
When I was made in secret
When I was formed in the depths of the earth

Your eyes saw me when I was formless
All my days were written in Your book
And planned before a single one of them began

How precious also are Your thoughts
Concerning me, oh God
How vast their sum is
If I counted them, they would outnumber the grains of sand
When I wake up, I am still with You

God, do away with wickedness for good
Keep away from me, those who thirst for blood
Who speak against You wickedly

Your enemies take Your name in vain
Oh Lord, shouldn’t I hate those who hate You
See how I loathe all this godless arrogance
I hate it with all my heart
Your enemies are my enemies

Search me, God, and know my heart
Test me and know my concerns
See if there is any sinful way in me
Lead me in the everlasting way
Track Name: My Father
My Father

“Events in my life left me wallowing in self-pity and low self-esteem. ‘I am the apple of God’s eye’ was just a phrase and seemed foreign to me. This song was born out of my need to know that I really matter to God.” – Wayne Tester

I believe You are intimate
And involved with me
So kind and compassionate
Always with me
Slow to anger
Full of mercy
In You I’m complete

Heavenly Father, You are my Father
I am the apple of Your eye, my Father
Heavenly Father, You are my Father
I am the apple of Your eye, my Father

I believe You are full of joy
And You’re proud of me
So warm and affectionate
Holy, complete
Tender hearted and forgiving
You have made me clean

(Repeat Chorus 2x)
Track Name: Freely Forgive
Freely Forgive

“My greatest healing has come after and because of forgiveness. Sometimes I realize a new level of hurt and have to forgive all over again. It starts with admitting to myself who and what I need to forgive and then in my mind writing a check made out to that person out of my own checking account to pay for the damages that they caused. The real freedom comes when I realize that my checking account is being perpetually replenished with the forgiveness that God has and continues to show to me. Because He forgave me first, I have the capacity and ‘funds’ to forgive others.” – Esther Tester

Forgive our sins as we forgive
You taught us, Lord to pray
But You alone can grant us grace
To live the words we say
To live the words we say

How can Your pardon reach and bless
The unforgiving heart
That broods on wrongs and will not let
Old bitterness depart
Old bitterness depart

You freely forgave, so we forgive
We freely forgive our brothers
You freely forgave, so we forgive
We freely forgive our sisters
O-o-oh, o-o-oh

In blazing light Your cross reveals
The truth we dimly knew
What trivial debts are owed to us
How great our debt to You
How great our debt to You

Lord cleanse the depths within our souls
And bound resentment cease
Then bound to all in bonds of love
Our lives will spread Your peace
Our lives will spread Your peace

(Repeat Chorus 2x)
Track Name: Butterfly
Butterfly

“This is my story, this is my song. It wasn’t until I was 30 years old that I started down the road to healing, so if you’re thinking you’re too old and it’s too late, you’re not and it’s not. I remember that God Himself was spinning my cocoon, creating a safe place for the quiet work He was planning. Then when all the tears had finally been cried and the nightmares had finally turned into dreams, I was ready to begin my struggle to find my wings. And yes, He was there every step of the way, whispering encouragement to me as I struggled with fear and self-doubt. Today, I fly on faith and yes, He’s still here, helping me fly.” – Esther Tester

Torn, stained and broken
Afraid to be free
I was still a child inside
I was so afraid to fly

Through silent dark
You held my heart
You were calling me “holy”
You were calling me “free”

I am free
The stone is rolled away
I am free
The sun is on my face
I was lost in pride and blinded by the pain
Then You set me free and called me from the grave

Fly, fly
Break free from this chrysalis
Fly, butterfly
Spread your wings
Touch the sky
Butterfly, butterfly, butterfly

Truth was a fire
That burned off my fears
Finally I was breaking through
You were making all things new

Your love has won
My chains undone
Now I’m standing here holy
Now I’m standing here free

(Repeat Chorus)

Fly, fly
You’re free from this chrysalis
Fly, butterfly
Spread your wings
Touch the sky
Butterfly, butterfly, butterfly
Track Name: One (feat. Nicole C. Mullen)
One

“We’ve worshipped along with Nicole at church for years and have always wanted to collaborate on something creative with her but the timing wasn’t right… yet. So as we were writing for this project, it happened… God set up a divine appointment right there in the church aisle and that’s when we all knew this was the time. The nation and the world is so divided these days and there’s no better time than now for the church to step up and lead as a unified body. This was the beat that was pulsing in each of our hearts as we wrote this song. If we don’t unify, then how will they ever see Jesus in us?” – Wayne and Esther Tester

You and me may not always see identically
And there’s some things where we’re simply gonna disagree
A tune of many notes can still have harmony, a symphony
‘Cause I need you and brother, you need me

And they’ll know we are one
By the way we love, by the way we love
And they’ll know we are one
By the way we love, by the way we love

Take my hand and walk a mile with me and you will see
Together we can conquer anything in unity
Through the blood of Christ He turns diversity to family
‘Cause I need you and sister, you need me

(Repeat Chorus)

There is just one Spirit
One hope, one body
We believe, we believe
There is one baptism
One faith and Lord of all
We believe, we believe

(Repeat Chorus 2x)

By the way we love, by the way we love
By the way we love, by the way we love
Track Name: It's A Brave New World
It’s A Brave New World

“One of the hardest things we ever have to do is leave the past behind. It takes bravery and trusting that God’s going to protect us when we step out onto the water and into that brave new world.” – Wayne and Esther Tester

What is forgotten, forgotten by time doesn’t matter anymore
What is eternal, eternally mine, will I take to Heaven’s door
All that I’ll ever need I have now in Christ
This is the first day of the rest of my life

It’s a brave new world
I’m leaving my past behind
It’s a brave new world
I know who I am in Christ
I believe, I believe
Jesus gave me the victory
I’m renewed, I’m redeemed
It’s a brave new world for me
I’m flyin’ free
I’m flyin’ free

I won’t be shaken, I won’t be slowed down ‘cause my past has been redeemed
Looking to Heaven, my future is now, dreamin’ how the Father dreams
I am transformed by the renewing of my mind
Each day becoming more and more like Jesus Christ

(Repeat Chorus 2x)
Track Name: My New Name
My New Name

“This song was written out of my “stuck-ness” in my life. I started singing these truths I had read about in the Freedom materials and I started believing the past is really in the past and that God is all about making all things new, including me.” – Wayne Tester

Beloved, so beautiful
Protected, unashamed
Forgiven, presentable
In Jesus

My new name
My new name
Thank You, Father God
For my new name

Established, Your work of art
Adopted, I am free
So treasured, I am loved
In Jesus

(Repeat Chorus)

In Christ I am made holy
In Christ complete
In Christ I am made holy
In Christ complete

(Repeat Chorus 2x)
