Brand New Me

by Frances Drost

  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    There's always hope!!

    Fear led to depression.
    Depression forced me into counseling.
    Counseling led to figure skating. It's TRUE! (She told me to go do something fun).
    Figure skating unleashed a "Brand New Me".
    That's what this album is about.

I was down and out when Hope walked in Saw what I could be and not what's been I could hear Him say Today's another day I was full of fear when Hope walked in Said you have what it takes so try again I believe in you Let me help you through Hope came knocking Doubt quit talking My heart started feeling alive Hope stayed longer Faith got stronger Love said you're gonna survive When Hope walked in I was overwhelmed when Hope walked in Said I see your strength is wearing thin It's all in my control Rest your weary soul I was in the dark when Hope walked in Brightened up my life said let's begin See what I have planned Come and take my hand My mind could not ignore The raging tug of war But my heart had heard Every single word I said yes and opened the door
Praise to the Lord the Almighty The King of creation Oh my soul praise Him for He is your health and salvation All ye who hear now to His temple draw near Join me in glad adoration Praise the Almighty Praise to the Lord Praise to the Lord who o'er all things so wondrously reigneth He shields you under his wings yes so gently sustaineth Have you not seen how your desires have been Granted in what He ordaineth Praise to the Lord who will prosper your work and defend you Surely His goodness and mercy here daily attend you Ponder anew what the Almighty can do Since with His love, He befriends you
Brand New Me 02:57
Brand New Me By Frances Drost Living on the verge of something just begun Don’t have to do what I’ve always done Feeling my heart pound a brand new theme I’m pressing on to a bigger dream I want to run to the edges Leap off of ledges Feel what it's like to fly I'm letting go of the old way Saying hey it's a new day Look what I get to be A brand new me I want to try things I’ve never tried And say goodbye to my foolish pride Don’t need to know what you think of me I’m better off if I live care-free
Feels Good to Be Free By Frances Drost Driving down the freeway Thinking I’m not what I used to be And since I’m getting stronger I’m loving what I see in me I’m not through yet And I pray there’s more But there’s one good thing that I know for sure It feels good to be free Looking in the mirror I can see that I have changed It happens on the inside Everything is rearranged And I don’t know how but I know it’s true 'Cause I’m doing things I could never do It feels good to be free I am free I am free from impossibility I can see beyond what used to be To what's ahead of me It feels good to be free The weight is gone that held me back It’s grace that keeps my life on track I’ve set my course my steps are planned My future’s sure by God’s hand
You Are 04:33
You Are By Frances Drost You’re my drink of water You’re my bread of life You’re the one I turn to You are You’re my great Redeemer You’re the King of kings You’re the holy Lamb of glory You Are You're the God of the universe You are everything I need I can come to you just the way I am even though I am just me 'Cause You are You’re my loving Father You’re Almighty God You’re the one I count on You are You’re the King of heaven You’re my Prince of Peace You’re the Alpha and Omega You Are You’re the future God You are present here You were long before the past
Who Do You Think You Are? By Frances Drost I woke up early on a sunny day Full of ideas in a cheerful way Grabbed my keys, headed out the door Then I heard a voice that I’ve heard before (it said) Who do you think you are? You'll fall fast and hard Think you're tough You're not good enough Who do you think you are? Who do you think you are? I sat in silence then I called my Dad and said I need help am I going mad Every time I get back on my feet Doubt and fear say you can’t compete Good old Dad, he was wise and quick he said Don’t let fear play that age-old trick Remember that words can work both ways Give it right back looking fear in the face And say who do you think you are Who do you think you are Remember that words can work both ways Who do you think you are? Who do you think you are? Turn it around, stand your ground And say who do you think you are? Who do you think you are?
Sing Anyway 04:34
Sing Anyway! By Frances Drost and Babbie Mason When the way is dark and you lose your song Sing anyway When the faith you have is almost gone Sing anyway Light will come and the pain will ease Hope will rise with a melody With a joyful heart even if off-key Sing anyway, sing anyway Sing, sing out loud Find your voice though you don't know how You'll be alright take a leap of faith Sing anyway, sing anyway When you’re in the fire and you feel it burn Sing anyway When you hit a wall at every turn Sing anyway Lift your voice let the courage flow Mercy comes in the afterglow And grace will make your weak heart grow Sing anyway, sing anyway When you feel afraid of what lies ahead Sing anyway And you start to doubt what God has said Sing anyway Faith will grow when you start to sing Praise will conquer anything Let the heavens hear your music ring Sing anyway, sing anyway
Just Like You By Frances Drost I’ve got doubts and questions too Unanswered prayers, yeah, quite a few Somedays I wonder why I ever pray Seems like God does what He wants anyway Don't let anybody tell you That you're fighting this battle alone We're all in this together Hold on kid, you're not on your own I'm just like you I'm just like you I’ve got dreams and nightmares too All mixed up like gumbo stew Somedays I’d rather stay in bed Me and the dog playing dead I’ve got days that start out wrong List of worries four feet long Things get worse as the day goes by Troubles keep coming and multiply
Don't Quit 02:37
Don't Quit By Frances Drost You don’t quit gardening over one small weed You don’t quit farming over one bad seed I’m not perfect, wish I could be So don’t quit loving me because of me You don’t quit wishing over one lost wish You don’t quit fishing over one lost fish I’m not perfect, wish I could be So don’t quit loving me because of me I get in my own way Seems I do it every day But I can be much more than you can see So don't quit loving me You don’t quit spending over one bounced check You don’t quit driving over one bad wreck I’m not perfect, wish I could be So don’t quit loving me because of me You don’t quit sleeping over one rough night You don’t quit loving after one tough fight I’m not perfect, wish I could be So don’t quit loving me because of me
Nobody Sees 03:53
Nobody Sees By Frances Drost and Darwin Moody Nobody sees in the depths of my soul The mysteries of me that nobody knows Others will look at the outside of me But only my Father can see down deep Won’t You touch me Won’t You change me So look inside the hidden parts Reach into the depths of my heart I open up I let you see Everything there is to me That nobody sees Nobody sees all those places I’ve been All my mistakes and my secret sins All of the tears when I fall on my face All of the times I’m in need of Your grace But You love me You forgive me Nobody sees the hope inside of my dreams Nobody sees the plans You have for me
It's All About the Ride By Frances Drost and Wally Nason I was just a young girl holding tight to my brother He’d lean to the left I’d lean to the other Riding leather and chrome we would steal away Didn’t know back then where I’d be today Down the winding road Many miles to go Got the wind in my hair No time to be scared Gotta look through the curve Keep my faith and my nerve Learning to travel light It's all about the ride I’m a little bit older I want to go further I don’t hold back I lean a lot harder Doesn’t matter to me what the make or model Just hold on tight and roll that throttle I’m a soul rider Who never rides alone I love the journey Now I’m taking the long way home
That's What Faith is All About By Matthew West and Keith Brown WORD MUSIC PUBLISHING Used by Permission The whisper of a prayer Is anybody there You’re searching for a sign A reason to believe Surrounded by your fear You watch your courage disappear Somewhere in the night When your well is running dry These are the moments of truth in our lives These are the times to hold on It's believing the impossible Seeing the invisible Dreaming bigger than you've ever dreamed It's listening to his still small voice Letting your heart make the choice Standing at the edge of what could be It's reaching through the shadow of a doubt That's what faith is all about There’s a cry across the Nation From the corners of creation We all want something real Meaning to this life When the light of hope is fading The love of God is waiting And it’s love that we can find When we stop looking with our eyes If we just follow with faith like a child We can move mountains Lord, we will follow with faith like a child And we will move mountains
Blessing Song By Frances Drost May the Lord bless you and keep you May the Lord make His face shine upon you May the Lord lift His countenance and smile on you And be gracious to you And be gracious to you And be gracious to you And give you peace
