Track Name: There is a Mountain
THERE IS A MOUNTAIN in capo 4 C (E)
Finished November 2014

Verse 1
There is a mountain only the lame can climb
There is a table only the hungry find
Only the beggar will have the currency
When need is all you need

Verse 2
There is a victory only the conquered gain
There is a glory that you get when give up your name
Oh the peace when you finally yield the fight
In surrender rise

CHORUS
Come with open hands in need
Come hearts broken, bended knee
A gift can only be received
Received

Verse 3
So come to the mountain, He carries the cripple to the feast
Come to the table, undeserved He has saved you a seat
Come and eat and drink without money and without a cost
He has paid it on the cross

Chorus

Bridge:
The king bends low to wash our feet
To lift our heads, set captives free
To lead us home to that wedding feast
We taste it now, at last we'll eat

Of that richest food, oh that well-aged wine
The shroud will lift, our tears he'll dry
Come hungry souls, be satisfied
Both now and forever
Track Name: Eve's Lament
EVE’S LAMENT
Genesis 3, promise of Genesis 3:15
Written September 2013
Key: D (C capo 2)

Verse 1
I wandered far away with my love
Felt the tall grass on my legs
The sun is warm, the birds are singing
I should have run when I had the chance

Verse 2
I felt him sliding up beside me
His words they played upon my pride
I let the lie wrap all around me
I let his whisper hypnotize

Chorus
Did He really say it? Why is He keeping you down?
Don’t you want to taste it? Freedom without Him around?
Don’t you want to see? Don’t you want to choose?
You want it, don’t you? Don’t you?

Verse 3
I took the fruit of my desire
Sweet the poison in my mouth
Awake, awake the the fall, the fire
The lie constricts, the curse clamps down

Chorus

Bridge
Shame the venom running through my veins
A plague, a cancer and my death
And every son of mine, will feel the serpent’s bite
But one will crush his head
Yes one will crush his head
Oh come and crush his head!

On the edge of that sea

Track Name: All is Vanity
ALL IS VANITY (March 2011) - Bridge added Oct 2015
Ecclesiastes 1, 2, 5, 12

Wisdom is good
It puts eyes in your head
But it’s foolish to think
It’ll save you from death
Both the fool and the wise man
Are numbering their breaths
And in the end, all this wisdom
Is just meaningless

Pleasure is nice
The taste and touch
But with all your indulgence
You can’t get enough
You can chase every pleasure
Around every bend
But in the end all this chasin’
Is just chasin’ wind

Chorus
Oooh all’s vanity
Oooh all is vanity
Ooh you feel eternity beating in your chest
So you know in your soul it’s not all meaningless

Workin is good
Money keeps you fed
But you can’t take it with you
When you are dead
When all that you made
Will all turn to rust
In the end it won’t matter
When you turn to dust

Beauty is sweet
To the beholder’s eye
You know it when you see it
And it echoes the light
But age and opinion
Bids beauty goodbye
And in the end the beholder
Just changes his mind

Chorus

Verse 1
I have been the younger son
Chase my pleasure, chase my fun
Build castles in the sand
My own Promise Land

When my kingdoms all fall down
The famine comes, I bottom out
I can hear your voice
Call for your little boy

Pre-Chorus 2
But you were more of a means than a Father
You were drownin’ my dreams underwater

Chorus
My child, my child
I’ll run out to meet you
Come into my house
What’s lost will be found

Come into the party
All I have is yours
Don’t stand outside my door
All I have is yours

Verse 2
I have been the elder son
Slavin’ til the work is done
Just tryin’ to earn my keep
Nothing comes for free

Bitterness is in my blood
From all this tryin’ to be enough
You love that wayward son
But look at what I’ve done

Pre-Chorus 2
You’re more of a means than a Father
And I act like an employee, not a son, not a daughter

Though outwardly we waste away
Our flesh and foe assail us
Though we grow weary on the way
The promise will not fail us

We long for full redemption
When God will bring His children home
Forever to be with Him

Do not lose heart, our hope is stronger
Jesus is risen up
Do not lose heart, our king has conquered
And He will overcome

Though suffering is long and hard
It’s only momentary
Compared to heaven’s great reward
Eternal weight of glory

We fix our eyes upon the cross
Where he endured our shame
We hold to love that can’t be lost
And joy that will not fade

Do not lose heart, our hope is stronger
Jesus is risen up
Do not lose heart, our king has conquered
And He will overcome
So we will overcome

Bought with the blood
Sealed by the Spirit
When the storm rises
We will not fear it
Beloved children
Heirs of the Father
He is our trust
Our hope is stronger

OH GOD, MY GOD (PSALM 22)
Psalm 22 + 69, Key of C

My heart it melts like wax
I feel my every bone
My tongue is dried up in my mouth
And all my strength is gone

Sorrow is my food
And vinegar my drink
The lion and the dogs surround
They’ve pierced my hands and feet

CHORUS
O God, my God why do you forsake?
O God, my God why are you far away?

A worm and not a man
I’m hated and despised
Crushed by the heel of closest friends
As enemies draw nigh

Where is the God you trust?
They laugh and wag their heads
Your soul is laid down in the dust
He’s leaving you for dead

CHORUS
O God, my God why do you forsake?
O God, my God why are you far away?

My God has heard my cry
He does not hide his face!
The poison food turned feast for you
And scorn will turn to praise

Let all the nations bow
For all the earth shall see
The man rejected and despised
Returning as the king

O God, my God everyone will say
Oh God my God, He is not far away

We loosed the lions at our door
Our lovers carried us away
Your glory was gone
