Spirit (Keep On) Be still now child When you’ve lost your way And the hell of yesterday Bleeds into today I see the storm is raging Inside and all around You’re a tempest tossed, til you’re lost And feeling for the ground Oh I will never leave you, orphaned all alone I’ll send my Spirit to come and call you home I see the broken edges And the tearing of your will In the secret dark of the human heart And I’ll lean in closer still ‘Cause I got mercy miles and miles I got truth full of years And it goes on for ages Stretching into the clear Oh I will never leave you, orphaned all alone I’ll send my Spirit to come and call you home Home, home…

Autumn In Kingston Springs Well I didn’t want to lay it down But I knew I had to give it up I was fooling myself for far too long When I finally found I’d had enough Then I got broken down as I could be It took a while but I busted free Through the rattle and shinin’, rhythm and rhyme In the rustle of the falling leaves Praying we the poor in Spirit Lord Jesus Christ have mercy on us Well I was kneeling when the whistle blew A premonition in a heavy hue When we caught us a breeze through the tunnel of trees Beneath the silver of the Harpeth moon We were carried by the Spirit’s power In the glory of the golden hour Lying crippled and bruised, betrayed and accused I was moving but I didn’t know how Praying we the poor in Spirit Lord Jesus Christ have mercy on us I know you’ll bind and bottle every tear And I’m still reeling from the tender words You whisper loud and clear Yellow, maple, red and tangerine Well it’s autumn now in Kingston Springs Where the church bells chime the rhythm and rhyme Blowing beauty like you wouldn’t believe And all the trouble that you’ve known so well Like the color on the old hotel It’s gonna wither and fade Wither and fade Wither and fade away
3.
Lover of My Soul You’re the lover of my soul And I’m like a drowning man Only your tender mercy Can turn the sea to land You’re the lover of my soul My anchor in the storm From out of the falling darkness The hope of day is born Holy Spirit, heaven’s wind Come and make your presence known Hold me in your righteousness By faith in you alone You’re the lover of my soul My shelter and my shield Surely your love surrounds me My mortal wound is healed Surely your love surrounds me My mortal wound is healed You’re the lover of my soul You’re the lover of my soul You’re the lover of my soul You’re the lover of my soul
4.
The Slow Surrender Separated, distant and alone Cold communication and you don’t even know The measure of your defenses though over engineered They could never hold up the weight of all the fear We isolate to ease the pain but that won’t make it go away ‘Cause the truth is we’re no good alone Try to fake it, dressing up the part For the one who knew you naked from the start See you with your hands up, lifted in the air It’s the slow surrender, collapsed and unprepared And it should come as no surprise we’re blessed with failure by design Of the truth oh we’re no good alone Me and you, oh we’re no good alone Called out of isolation, the Spirit’s invitation Baptized imagination, come join the living world Oh we’re no good alone Me and you, oh we’re no good alone

Many Waters 03:47
Many Waters Baby there’s nothing cliché About you and me We said our vows In the cemetery And I know it’s hard to believe When you’ve suffered such pain You want someone to blame For what was taken away If I could get you alone, I’m gonna show you Love stronger than death, as fierce as the grave In the fire that flashes, a sacred desire For many waters won’t wash it away So set me a seal on your heart If you know what I mean Until the day breathes And the shadows flee Yeah you’re covered in clothes And everyone knows That shame can be loud But it’s quiet here now If I could get you alone, I’m gonna show you Love stronger than death, as fierce as the grave In the fire that flashes, a sacred desire For many waters won’t wash it away Wash it away, won’t wash it away Wash it away, won’t wash it away Baby there’s nothing cliché about you and me
6.
Speak 04:55
Speak If you speak, I will hear your voice I’ve been listening for the sound For the words that form to cross your lips, ring in my ears Gather up the strength and trust enough to do it Like when you were young, there was nothing to it Oh open up your heart I just wanna know, I just wanna feel If ever there’s a chance of getting something real Oh you know it’s worth the fight And if you speak, I will hear your voice I’ve been listening for the sound For the words that form to cross your lips, ring in my ears You’re standing still, everything is moving The light, the heat, the color of the moment Oh, I can’t let it pass us by It’s burning in your chest, blazing like a fire Shut up in your bones, balanced on a wire Oh there’s no holding back the flood To bridge the fear and the anguish deep In the peace we share, such a sweet release No sentimental, ordinary, holy mystery You’re keeping locked inside Is there a word that’s ringing true? Or some coded combination for getting through to you? There must be a thousand ways to break our hearts It only takes a word to penetrate the dark The silence closing in on every side Can never stop the light from shining
7.
The Faithful Kind Oh my brother there’s so much I want to say But my emotions get the best of me and the words they slip away You were there, you were there when life got rough Yeah you gave me strength to carry on when I didn’t have enough Oh the ache and the pain of those days It felt like everything was leaving me but you stayed And I want to say I love you and I want to thank you now There was heartbreak on the walls of every room Hope was hollowed out of history and the veil was torn in two A broken home It was your voice talking on the phone About how time and truth go hand in hand Abandoned but not alone And I want to say I love you and I want to thank you now The devil has his own designs To terrorize you flying blind You’ll walk a mile before you find How the light it stretches far and wide There is no fear in love There is no fear in love There is no fear in love There is no fear in love I know because you showed me You showed me, you showed me You showed me And you’re the faithful kind
8.
Last Chance I am alone in fear Entrenched by death I'm stranded here There is no sun up in my sky I’m pounded by your every wave Your anger is like a silent cage People say your love has passed me by But I'm standing my ground Though I'm living out on the edge of hell Have I been swallowed by the night? Oh for crying out loud You're the king of the angels in the sky And I'm feeling your rage at every side Do my words even matter at all? Can you still hear me when I call? Or are you as deaf as I am blind? Am I alone with the trouble I'm in? The darkness is my only friend Even my love left me behind But I'm standing my ground Though I'm living out on the edge of hell Have I been swallowed by the night? Oh for crying out loud You're the king of the angels in the sky And I'm feeling your rage at every side You are my last chance through the fire and the falling rain You are my last chance and when I'm lost you're my way back again You are my last chance through the fire and the falling rain You are my last chance and when I'm lost you're my way back again Lord I’m lost, be my way back again Oh Lord I’m lost, be my way back...
