about

I wrote each of these songs with specific friends in mind, some of whom have backed my latest project, The Blood + The Breath, on Kickstarter. These demos were recorded at home or down the street in my neighbors' garage apartment.

Track Name: My Refuge (Psalm 142) (for Carolyn)
With my voice, I am crying out
All my pain I am pouring out
All my sorrows spilling out
To you

There is no safe place for my soul
There is no shelter from the arrow
No one sees me here alone
Do you?

Still you are my refuge
You are my only hope
And you are my portion
When no one sees, I know you know

When my spirit faints inside
When my heart gives up the fight
Will you hear me when I cry
To you?

Oh morning come!
And swallow up the night
Set me free
That I may praise you in the light
My foes will flee
Like shadows from the sun
The darkness leaves
And you will come
Track Name: To My Sons (for Lizze and Jared)
To my son with a heart of a lamb
You are warm and kind
But don't be afraid to take a stand

To my son with a lion's roar
You have an eye for a fight
Fight for the things worth fighting for

Oh my sons, don't listen to lies
Follow the crowd
Or pick the wrong fight

Fight for the ones with no one to fight for them
His heart is close to the ones in the margin
Follow the one with a heart of a servant
If you lay your life down that's when
I know you will find it, I know you will find it

There was a son
Who was gentle as a lamb
And strong as a lion
My sons be like him!

Oh my sons
Pick up your cross
And walk humbly with your God

Fight for the ones with no one to fight for them
His heart is close to the ones in the margin
Follow the one with a heart of a servant
If you lay your life down that's when
I know you will find it, I know you will find it

When your life feels like a war
And in the heat of the battle
All you want is to lay down your sword
Remember he is behind you
He goes beside you
And he will go before
He's the rock you can cling to
A shield and a refuge
A safe place in the storm

Fight for the ones with no one to fight for them
His heart is close to the ones in the margin
Follow the one with a heart of a servant
If you lay your life down that's when
I know you will find it, I know you will find it
Track Name: Our Neighbor (for Linda and CCC Abilene)
Our God He left his crown and throne
To live among us
In human flesh He made a home
Because He loved us

So we will plant and build our homes
Let our roots grow deep
Be light, befriend, be love and hope
And sow the seeds of peace

Who is our neighbor?
If not the one across the street?
Who is our neighbor?
Open our eyes and let us see
The human heart and deepest need
Of our neighbor
Of our neighbor

Our God He loved a person whole
Washed both sins and feet
The Living Water to our souls
Gave the thirsty drink

So we will listen to their dreams
Stories and their scars
And we will lay them at His feet
Their burden will be ours

We love because He loved us first
Track Name: Send Us (for Amy)
How beautiful are the feet that carry the good news
Over land, over seas to places without You
Wake us up, lift our eyes to see the harvest, it is white
But the laborers are few
Here we are and here we rise
Bought by the blood of Christ
And we want to follow You, we want to follow You

Here we are, God! Would you send us?
To the darkness carrying your light
We are yours, though it cost us
We will go, speak the words of life

Take our lives, we lay them down
We want to live for You
We take our cross and we are found
When we lose ourselves for You

Here we are, God! Would you send us?
To the darkness carrying your light
We are yours, though it cost us
We will go, speak the words of life

We take up our cross, die to ourselves
We know the cost, it’s worth it
No other name, no other one
We know our God is worth it

We take up our cross, die to ourselves
We count the cost, it’s worth it
No other name, no other one
We know our God is worth it

Here we are, God! Would you send us?
To the darkness carrying your light
We are yours, though it cost us
We will go, speak the words of life
