Track Name: Take Me Down
See this high mountain that I have to climb
the path is stony and my feet are bare
See the wide river that I have to swim
But the man on the other side bids me come to him

See this old man hanging on to me
The weight of all my sorrows is the burden that he keeps
There’s a long race that I have to run
Oh God have mercy on my soul until this work is done

Take me down to the water
and let me catch my breath
I’m a crippled fool longing for the cleansing pool
but without your love, there’s no hope in life but death

See that lonely tree standing high on Calvary hill
The ground beneath is laden with the blood my True Love spilled
But there’s a sweet, sweet song, I once was damned, but now I’m saved,
And a man with a heavy stone is pointing to the empty grave!
And a man with a heavy stone is pointing to the empty grave!

Take me down to the water
and let me catch my breath
No more crippled fool longing for the cleansing pool
This forever love saved me from forever death
Track Name: Dark Is Light
Hush, be still my heart
this violet sky is full of stars
Love, donʼt fade away
soon the night will turn to day

but thereʼs a warning in that light
a call to war is on the rise

Life is not a choice
Even the smallest one must have a voice
Fear will turn to joy
In the arms of the God who satisfies

And there is hope for our souls yet
In this, the Love that conquers death
We we are safe in this Love....
We are safe in HIS love....
Track Name: Aria's Song
The womb of life
is in Your hand
the dark is light
as You command

Fearfully and wonderfully made
Fearfully and wonderfully made

Hemmed in behind
hemmed in before
You know my ways
where can I go?

And when I rise
or when I fall
You pierce the night
and bring the dawn

The stars, the stars are spinning
This universe is singing
Creation’s heart is beating
In secret, You are weaving

Fearfully and wonderfully made
Fearfully and wonderfully made
Fearfully and wonderfully made...
Track Name: Bones
Bones
(After Psalm 32 & Psalm 14)

Still, my body, like an empty drum
What would you do to untie my tongue?
In my silence, I will waste away
Your hand is heavy in the heat of day

Shake these bones
Awake these bones
They are part of the body
So take these bones and breathe them to life

In her heart the fool says there’s no God
In all the work she does is there no good?
For empty words from hardened hearts are lies
Lord have mercy on those who would deny

Amazing grace, awake my soul
I stood in wrath, but now I know
by grace I lay me at your throne and sing!

Shake these bones
Awake these bones
They are part of the body
So take these bones and breathe them to life
Track Name: Beautiful
If I listen
If I listen close I can hear your heart
If I close my eyes
If I stand real still I know where you are

In the leaves that fall around like little hands with painted palms
In the birds that land on wires like wandering notes from other songs
You are beautiful

If I listen
If I listen close I can hear your voice
In the budding of the baby’s breath in the morning light

And the fields are dressed as kings in all the colors you have named
And the breeze bends flowers and ferns and whistling reeds whisper your name
And they call you beautiful

If I stand here
In my dirty feet and my wedding dress
I’m unlovely
But you’re wooing me in spite of my mess

And the sweetness of the sun is like your kiss upon my eyes
A seal you place upon your heart, a promise for your bride
You call her beautiful
You call me beautiful
Track Name: Psalm 23
The LORD is my shepherd; I have no need
He makes me lie down and rest
He leads me beside waters of peace
Where my soul can be refreshed

He leads me down paths of righteousness
for his name’s sake.

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death
I will fear no evil
For you are with me, your rod and your staff they comfort me

You have set before me a table spread In spite of my greatest foes
You pour out anointing oil on my head
my cup overflows.

You lead me down paths of righteousness, for your names’ sake

Surely goodness and mercy will follow me
all my life, I will dwell in Your house
Track Name: Prodigal
The garden was young then
And the lovers were new
The fig leaves were green yet
And the tree had itʼs fruit

She wanted to be God
She ate unto her death
Her lover, he tasted the fruit of regret
Theyʼre never going back again

I had all that I wanted
But I stole anyway
I lied and I cheated
Iʼll suffer the same

I wanted to be God
Now Iʼm falling to my knees Iʼm asking to come home
A servant to the King
And Iʼm never going back again

I fall before you naked and ashamed
Yet in my weakness, perfect is your strength
You clothe me in grace and now I stand unstained

And Iʼm never going back again

And I donʼt want to be God.....
