Released in 2002 Extreme Worship is Jim Baileys fourth album. (fifth if you include "all over again the best of Jim Bailey 1994- 2000"). Extreme worship came on the back of Stonkin' Christmas Mix.

Jim teamed up again with Mark Edwards, producer of Stonkin to bring a children's dance music worship album. In the live shows Jim was using Technics 2010's ( famous classic DJ record decks) & a Roland Groove Box mixed & merged with Live Instruments & vocals.

Extreme was an independant release as Jim had set up his own studio to try & help new songwriters & musicians get a foot in the door of a then clositered Christian Music Scene.

Cross rhythms review
Reviewed by Tony Cummings Rating 8 out of 10

The intended audience for ‘Extreme Worship’ are “tweenagers” (10-13 year olds) and pretty impressive it is too. I’ve always found Jim’s kids albums a tad unconvincing but here his singing seems to have improved considerably while his long term alliance with studio whiz Mark Edwards continues here with spectacular results. Listen to the pulsating dance rhythms Mark adds to “Colours Of Salvation” and his remix of “Children Of The Cross” is attention grabbing. Plus those excellent London rappers Overflow add plenty of street sounds (I particularly liked their contribution to “Breakout”). Jim describes his album as “an eclectic mixture of funky contemporary tunes but within the mix lies a heart-rending ballad ‘All Of This’ and of course the inevitable Spicy Camels intervene at the end of the album.” Even his brave transformation of the Savage Garden classic “Truly Madly Deeply” works surprisingly well.This is surely Jim’s best ever album.

Track Name: Children of the cross ( dance version)
Acts 2 v 17 v 39 / Psalm 8
God is raising up an army
Made of those who are still young
God is lifting up their voices
through the weak He'll shame the strong
It's been prophesied they will prophesy
Gods salvation they will show
For the promise is to the children
To our daughters to our sons

Children of the cross, a shining example
Children of the cross are singing His praise
Children of the cross are silencing the enemy
Children of the Cross are saying the Lord saves

listen this what I expect
give the kids a little respect
Track Name: Truly Madly Deeply
I’ll be your wish, I’ll be your dream
I’ll be your certainty
I’ll be your love, I’ll be your hope
be everything that you need
I’ll love you more with every
breath truly madly deeply do
I will be strong I will be faithful cos I'm counting on
A new beginning, a reason for living, a deeper meaning Yeah

I wanna stand with you on a mountain
I want to bathe with you in the sea
I want to live like this forever
Until the sky falls down on me

And when the stars are shining
brightly in the velvet sky
I’ll make a wish send it to Heaven
and make you want to cry
The tears of joy for
all the pleasure in the certainty
That we’re surrounded by the comfort
And protection of the
the highest powers in lonely hours
when tears devour me

I wanna stand with you on a mountain
I want to bathe with you in the sea
I want to live like this forever
Until the sky falls down on me

Oh can you see it baby
Don’t have to close your eyes
He’s right there right before you now
All that you need will surely come
Track Name: Colours of salvation
Gold was was the colour of that first day
Radiant yellow of sunrise
They ran in the beauty of all God had made
They hue of His love in their eyes
Black was the fear that darkened the door
Eclipsing the truth of all gone before
Obsidian lies blinding all of mankind
Colouring our judgement
to be colour blind

Red was the cross
Crimson the blood flowing from Jesus
He broke the curse of the Cardinal sin
He rose from the dead to free us
White was the light pure & pristine
Illuminating us making us clean
Sin red as scarlet now washed white as snow
God showed his true colours
and salvation showed

The colours of salvation
Redeeming the past
flowed into one
through God's holy son
when the colours were nailed to the mast

Green is the growth of new birth
A springtime of loves celebration
An emerald light that commands us to go
and troop the colours of salvation
Blue is for Heaven our final home
Where with flying colours around the royal throne
We'll unfurl forever our final hope
And worship in colours not even known
Track Name: Breakout
life is full of highs and lows you want to go fast but you seem to go slow
intravenous MTV flick the channels follow me
they sold us a lie it was wrapped in cellophane
and designed to persuade us that your just here to be enticed entertained endeared
life is filled with more than we can take
so close your eyes and escape, realise there's wolly stuff pulled over your eyes
behind the scenes a cosmic war
billions of lives are being fought for
take time to stop check pause
life comes with a get out clause

breakout everybody in the place
wake up back to the basics
makeup with the God of love
Father and son a way has just begun
breakdown this generation
meltdown no communication
reach out to the God of love
Its not too late to turn around again
there is more to life that wha tyou breathe
there is more to faith than mere belief
take time to stop check reality
you got to be like a little child to see
there is more to life than just all this
eternity is something that you can miss
turn around one eight zero degrees
on your knees and see God in simplicity

there's a message on your answerphone
the lights are on but you ain't home
you heading for self destruction mad corruption
if you ain't listening to the best instructions
before leaving earth please wait
check your tickets valid for them pearly gates
If Jesus Christ had not dealt with your sin
your names not on the list your not coming in

break free finding a reason
look up something to believe in
reach up to find your purpose
reach high know your not worthless
Breakout the lies and the fears
open up your eyes to hear
right here fins a new direction
right now answers to the question
on a mission to beleive
Track Name: Extreme
In my worship & my dreams I want to believe
You can do most anything
More than I can conceive
In my heart there is a quest to be the very best
In all I do glorify You
Am i going to extremes

Extreme in my love for you
Extreme beyond belief
Extreme in all I say & do
You went to extremes for me

Now inside I am on fire
And i burn with desire
To shake off all of this world
Break free & fly higher
A fanatics's someone who
Loves Jesus more than you
I am guilty as can be of going to extremes
Track Name: All of this
Got in way past midnight, looked into your room
You were peacefully sleeping
so i prayed a prayer for you
Just before closing the door
wished all your dreams come true
That you would know how I love you
Your face is like the morning
Your smile brings out the sun
Your everything that summer
means all rolled into one
When you laugh I almost
hear angels having fun
That you would know how I love you
If it cost the moon I would buy it
Move Heaven and Earth then I's try it
When i know that is more
simple than all this
To be the shoulder you can cry on,
to be the one there to rely on
I just hope and pray I'll be all of this
I'll hold you when your hurting
be careful you don't fall
I's do anything for you anything at all
I will try to be my best for you
God help me live the songs
So you will know how i love you
Track Name: Thank You Lord ( No limits)
Thank you Lord there are no limits
To Your love and power
There are no barriers to hold you down
Nothing can ever seperate us from the love of Jesus
You are Lord and all authority & power are Yours
You break the chains and open every door
Nothing can ever seperate us from the love of Jesus
Height of depth
Angels or demons
Present or future or
Anything to come
life or death nothing in creation can seperate us from the love of God
thank You thank You
Track Name: Generation
Who will ascend the hill of the Lord
who will dwell in the holy place
He who has clean hands a pure heart
They will see the fathers face

Such is the generation who seek you
Such is the generation who seek your face
Such is the generation who seek you
Such is the generation who seek your face
Oh God oh God who seek Your face
Track Name: Lord of the dance
I danced in the morning
when the world was begun,
And I danced in the moon
and the stars and the sun,
And I came down from heaven
and I danced on the earth,
At Bethlehem I had my birth.

Dance dance, wherever you may be;
I am the Lord of the Dance, said he.
And I’ll lead you all wherever you may be,
And I’ll lead you all in the dance

I danced for the scribe and the Pharisee,
they would not dance and they would not follow me;
I danced for the fishermen, for James and John;
They came to me and the dance went on.

I danced on the sabbath when I cured the lame,
The holy people said it was a shame;
They whipped and they stripped
hung me high;
And they left me there on a cross to die.

I danced on a Friday and the sky turned black;
It’s hard to dance with the devil on your back;
They buried my body and they thought I’d gone,
But I am the dance and I still go on.

They cut me down and I leapt up high,
I am the life that’ll never, never die;
I’ll live in you if you’ll live in me;
I am the Lord of the Dance, said he.
Track Name: There but by the grace of God go I
Where would I be now if you had not stepped into my life
where would i be now but for your hand to give me life
I'd be out in the world searching blindly on
you have saved me so I can sing this song

What would i do now if you hadn't stepped into my life
What would I do know if you weren't there to give me life
I's be out on my own searching for a home
but as it is you rolled away the stone

There but by the grace of God go I
No matter what I do how hard I try
Without Your love I's be a ship without a wheel
Without your love
Without your love my life would be unreal
