Track Name: Garden (Genesis)
Beauty from void, dark to light
Sun for the day, stars for the night
For you I’ll plant a garden, fill it with light
Food for your mouth and color for eyes
And..

Chorus
I will breathe into the dust
The breath of life and all my love
And when you open your eyes
You will see and be satisfied
Because I will be with you
I will be with you, I

Fall asleep, I’ll make for you a love
Love like a shield, like a home, like a dove
You are free, but ever enthralled
And I, I will be your all
And...

Chorus

Pick the lies right off the tree
Your eyes are opened
But not to see
Build a tower to the sky
Flap your arms
You think you fly
Melt your gold down to a god
Sell your soul to pay for your facade
Trade my love for silence
I’ll give you up if you want it
But...

Chorus
Track Name: Abel (Genesis)
Abel, your blood is in my mouth
Abel, your blood is crying out
He was angry or jealous
His heart was full of hate
But your blood is on your brother
And it’s calling out His name

Abel, betrayed in your last breath
And I am full of blood and dirt and death
But there is hope for you, and even for your brother yet
Cause there’s a Judge and He’ll avenge all
The blood of the oppressed

Abel, you know another man came down
Abel, you know His blood poured on the ground
He was right and He was love
He was buried in the dirt
But He broke free and His blood still
Cries out for the earth

Abel you’re not the only one
Cause it’s been brother against brother/ And father against son
Tribe killing tribe/ Race killing race (even in God’s name)
But the blood on the ground is the same in the veins
Flowing through you Abel and through your brother Cain

Abel one day all will be made right
Abel one day your blood will stop its cry
But til that day Love will fight even in God’s name
To bring justice for the helpless, redemption for Cain
Justice for the helpless, redemption for Cain and Abel

Please don’t fight anymore, be your brother’s keeper
Please don’t fight anymore, be your brother’s keeper
Please don’t fight anymore, be your brother’s keeper
Track Name: All the Stars (Genesis)
You followed me out to desert places
Leaving all familiar faces
To a land I will
Show you, promise you

Lift your eyes and look around you
Know my promise will be found true
All the land you see
Will your children’s be

And all the stars in the big, big sky
And all the sand in the ocean’s wide
Will not outnumber, will not outnumber you

All the people in the big, big world
All the nations of the earth
They will wonder, they will wonder at you

From your blood shall come kings
Everlasting
My covenant will be steadfast and free

From you shall come many nations
Generations
They will be my lot, and I will their God
Track Name: Pass Over (Exodus)
It's midnight in the city
Oh and we are hearing cries
Cries of deepest anguish
From the city's other side

Death is passing through this place
As dark as the night
But somehow we are safe here inside

Taking hyssop branches
Oh and dipping them down
Into the blood of the lamb
In whom no blemish is found

Blood on our doors
Is covering the people now
Covering with innocence the people now

When I see the blood I will pass over, pass over
When I see the blood I will pass over, pass over
No plague will befall you
And nothing will destroy you
When I see the blood, only by the blood

What can wash away my sins
Nothing but the blood
What can make me pure again
Nothing but the blood

Oh how precious is the flow
That makes me white as snow
Nothing but the blood, only by the blood
Track Name: Woman on the Roof (2 Samuel)
I saw her bathing on the roof
And the blood surged in my veins
And I knew that I desired
For another man’s things

But I called her to my castle
‘Cause her man was off at war
And I brought her to my bedroom
And then I shut the door

And when a few months later
She called me with the news
I had nearly forgotten
That woman on the roof

I called her husband home from war
But he would not see his wife
So then and there I started scheming
How I’d take his life

So I sent him to the front lines
And I pulled back the troops
That’s how I became a killer
For that woman on the roof

She became my wife
She gave us a son
When the prophet came to see me
About the sin I’d done

A sinner against God
I knew that he was right
And the sins of the father
Took my own son’s life

The story does not end here
God’s stories rarely do
For another son would come
From that woman on the roof
Track Name: Psalm 103
Praise the Lord, O my soul
Praise Him from the inmost parts of my being
Praise the Lord, praise His holy name
Let me not forget what He’s done for me

All my sin is forgiven
As He heals all my disease
From the depths of the darkest pit
My life has been redeemed

And He crowns me with love and compassion
Satisfies me with good things
Even youths grow tired and weary
But He raises them up on eagle’s wings to soar
Oh my soul, praise the Lord

Praise the Lord, abounding in love
As high as the heavens are above the earth
From the east to the west
My transgression is removed
He does not treat me as my sins deserve

All my sin is forgiven
As He heals all my disease
From the depths of the darkest pit
My life has been redeemed

And He crowns me with love and compassion
Satisfies me with good things
Even youths grow tired and weary
But He raises them up on eagle’s wings to soar
Oh my soul, praise the Lord
Track Name: All is Vanity (Ecclesiastes)
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

Oooh all’s vanity
Oooh all is vanity

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

Oooh all is vanity
Ooh all is vanity
Oooh all is vanity
Ooh all is vanity

Just enjoy your life
With the one you love
Fear and follow
The God above
‘Cause this is the whole
Duty of man
And in the end you gotta do
The best that you can

‘Cause ooh all is vanity
Ooh all is vanity
Oooh all is vanity
Ooh all is vanity
Track Name: Strong as Death (Song...)
He:
You are beautiful, my love
Your eyes like doves
Hidd’n behind your veil

I’m a captive entranced
With just one glance
My heart begins to fail

Honey drips from your lips
From your neck and from your hips
And your mouth
Is a scarlet thread

You are flawless and sweet
Your hair, your cheeks
Perfume annoints your head

Oh I am my love’s
And she is mine
Upon my heart she seals me
Love as strong as death
And fierce like fire
Wounding as it heals me

She:
You are radiant, my love
Your eyes like doves
Your name is oil poured out

And desire like a fetter
No wine tastes better
Than the kisses of your mouth

I will give you my love
All for you, I’ve stored it up
In my heart you’ve awakened a burning

So until the day breathes
And shadows flee
Stay with me, love til morning

Oh, I am my love’s
And he is mine
Upon my heart he seals me
Love as strong as death
And fierce like fire
Wounding as it heals me
Track Name: Your Wounds (Isaiah 53)
Man of sorrows
Hated and despised
So marred, so ugly
We all turned our eyes

Like sheep we’ve wandered
Going our own way
On You, the Father
All our sins has laid

Your wounds, our healing
Your stripes, our peace
You carried our sorrows
You carried our griefs

You poured out your soul
Unto death
So we could be counted
Righteous
Track Name: They Will Know Me (Jer.)
You have been as a faithless wife
To a husband always by your side
Though I led you out from Egypt’s land
You broke your pledge, took off your band

The day is coming so lift up your head
I will make you new promises
Watching o’er to build and plant
No more to tear down

I will put my law within
On your heart it will be written
The greatest and the least
Will know me
They will know me

I will be their only God
They will be my love and lot
I’ll forgive their iniquities
Cast it out from my memory

Thus says the Lord, who gives the sun its light
Thus says the God of the moon and stars at night
Thus says the one who has measured heaven’s height
I won’t cast you aside
Track Name: My Last Rope (Lamentations)
How lonely sits the city of God
Like a widow, a slave to be bought
Where are all the lovers she sought?
Weeping bitterly
Tears upon her cheeks

And my soul is bereft of peace
In the gravel, grinding my teeth
I have forgotten what happiness means
And all the light is gone
All my hope is feels wrong

But this I call to mind
And therefore I have hope
If I am here in the bottom of the pit
I cling to this like, my last rope

Your love never ceases
Your mercy never ends
They are new every morning
Great is your faithfulness
Great is your faithfulness

Like a lion lying in wait
He’s walled me in so I can’t escape
Broken my bones, my flesh wastes away
Besieged with bitterness
I am desolate
Track Name: Dry Bones (Ezekiel)
Dry bones
Hearts of stone
Slain and left
In the valley of death

Been dead so long
All the flesh is gone
A mass grave
No one can raise

But you said “live”
And the ground starts to give
And the bones start to rattle
And the darkness lifts

You gave them blood and bone and
Hearts of stone to flesh
You gave them muscle, skin, and
Life within the breath

Open graves
Bodies raised
The living breath
Reversing death

From Ezekial’s vision in Ezekial 37:1-14; 36:26,27
Track Name: Habakkuk's Prayer (Habakkuk)
Though the fig tree does not blossom
And no fruit be on the vine
Though the fields all will fail
And the flock we cannot find

Still I will rejoice
I will take joy in the Lord
The God of my salvation
He is my strength
He makes my feet like the deer
To dwell in the high places
And still I will rejoice

From Habakkuk 3:17-19
Track Name: The Place to Hide (Zeph.)
The day is coming and coming fast
A day of weeping, a day of wrath
A day of ruin, dark, and gloom
Oh the day, the day is coming soon

The ones who think He’ll never act
So they sit complacent, growing fat
The ones divided, bowing twice
From a jealous fire you cannot hide

Oh He’s both the refuge and consuming flame
Oh He brings the judgment and He mediates
Oh He sends the justice and He justifies
Sends the wrath that finds you and the place to hide

To the one who hides beneath his wing
He’ll cover you and o’er you sing
Love that quiets, joy and bliss
And the fire will burn clean your lips

Oh He’s both the refuge and consuming flame
Oh He brings the judgment and He mediates
Oh He sends the justice and He justifies
Sends the wrath that finds you and the place to hide

The day is coming and coming fast
A day of weeping, a day of wrath
A day of ruin, dark, and gloom
Oh the day, the day is coming soon
Track Name: Everything You've Heard (Matt.)
You've heard it said
Don’t you murder anyone
But you carry your anger like a knife
And your insults like a gun

You've heard it said
Don’t you cheat on your wife
But your mind is a motel room
And you undress the other woman with your eyes

Everything you’ve heard
I’m turning on its head
I’m cutting to the quick
Of the law and the prophets
I’m going to finish what they said

They all say love your friends
Hate your enemies
But I say to you love them
And when they strike, you turn the other cheek

‘Cause you’re the son of the One
Who sends the sun and rain
On both the good and the evil
So don’t you think you should do the same
Track Name: Gethsemane (Mark)
I climbed a mountain with three friends
Feel the darkness pressing in
I ask them to please stay awake
And I go off alone to pray

Father, please
Would you take this cup
It’s a heavy load to carry
But not my will
But what you want
Until I’m dead and buried

Sweat and blood they fall like tears
It seems the last star’s disappeared
Death it comes to separate
And my friends can’t stay awake

Father, please
Would you take this cup
It’s a heavy load to carry
But not my will
But what you want
Until I’m dead and buried

They came with clubs to capture me
An old friend he kissed my cheek
And all my friends they ran away
And i’m alone, denied, betrayed

Father, please
Would you take this cup
It’s a heavy load to carry
But not my will
But what you want
Until I’m dead and buried

My God, my God’s forsaken me
Hanging broken on a tree
Who can save you now they laugh
The darkness comes, I breath my last
Until I’m dead and buried
Track Name: He's Alive (Luke)
We buried our hope on a Friday night
Through my tears I watched him die
We left our jobs, we left our lives
What will we do now?

I went to the tomb but he was gone
Did they take him somewhere, what’s going on
Two angels sat at the foot and the head
Saying “he’s alive, he is not dead”
He’s alive, he is not dead

He’s alive!
Death will die!
The fall will fly in reverse
Bury the curse
He’s alive

So I ran as fast as my legs could go
Saying “I’ve seen the Lord, He’s alive, I know!”
One night he showed us all his scars
And faith began to fill our hearts

He’s alive!
Death will die!
The fall will fly in reverse
Bury the curse
He’s alive

Our dead hope its pulse it starts
Its beating like his beating heart
In our joy, we watch him rise
Carried up into the sky
Track Name: From Him, To Him (Romans)
O, the depths of the riches
Of the wisdom and the knowledge
Of our God

How unsearchable his judgement
How unfathomable his ways
Who could be His counselor?
Could give Him a gift He must repay?

For from Him and to Him
All things through Him
Amen
Honor, power
Glory forever to Him
Amen
Track Name: Wake Up (1 Corinthians)
Through one man
Death it came
Running like a virus
Through our veins

Sin it comes
And takes the reigns
Builds its kingdom
On the backs of slaves

Oh....

Through a second man
Adam’s better son
Death is done, life is comes

Every power
Under his feet
Death it dies in defeat

Oh....

Wake up, wake up
And listen for the trumpet sound
For a dead man rose up from the ground

Rise up, rise up
You dry bones in the dirt
For the Son of God has risen up first

I tell you
This mystery
Death itself will lose its sting

When the dying dress
In the deathless life
We are changed in the twinkle of an eye

Oh....

Sown in weakness
Raised in power
Sown in dust and dishonor
Raised immortal
Never again to die
Death is swallowed up by life

From 1 Corinthians 15
Track Name: Philippians 2
Though He was in the form of God
He did not count Himself equal
But made Himself as nothing
A servant for the people

And in our likeness He was born
A king inside a manger
And being found in human form
He was treated like a stranger

Obedient to the point of death
And humble in every breath
To the glory of the Father God
Jesus the Son went to the cross
Jesus the Son went to the cross

And so God has exalted Him
Given name above all names
That heav'n and earth should worship Him
Raised to the highest place

Every knee bow, every tongue confess
That He is Lord o'er all the rest
To the glory of the Father God
Jesus the Son went to the cross
Jesus the Son went to the cross

Hallelujah
Track Name: Holy Nation (1 Peter)
As God chose Israel
So church he’s chosen you
To be his own people
With hearts that are true

Once you were not a people
But now you are his
Once you had not seen mercy
But now you have seen this

And you are a holy nation
Set apart like priests
You are like a beggar
Invited to the feast
To dine with a loving king

As Israel they wandered
So this is not your home
But he’s building a house
With Christ the cornerstone
Track Name: That Day (2 Peter)
That day will come like a thief
The heavens melt like snow
The stars, the sun and moon dissolve
Til all the earth’s exposed

O, but He is not slow
Though some would say it’s true
No, he waits to save
He’s patient for you

And though one day
Is like a thousand years
He will not be late
Yeah He will appear

Oh would you be found
Beneath His wing
Without spot or sin
The day hastening

As the world was flooded then
With water from the sky
So it will flood again
With fire by and by

Take refuge in Him
He is an ark to save
So you be diligent
That you may escape
