river of life

the preacher man is calling · he’s headed for the deep · he’s wading in the water and calling out to me · river of life wash over me · i can hear the angel voices · i can hear the angels sing · and i see that blessed river shine like diamonds just for me · river of life wash over me · let the new man come on and the old man let me be · you opened up my eyes to see a new way to die · that i could lay my body down and find eternal life · river of life wash over me · let the new man come on and the old man let me be · so i went down to that water · and got down on me knees · i left my crime by the riverside and i have been set free · river of life wash over me · let the new man come on and the old man let me be


take me home

i needed a sign to help me along · i needed that hand that i could never hold · i was a stranger on the open road and it’s a long way down · You came like a call from a distant shore · but more like a whisper always calling me for the end of a dark, dark corridor and it’s a long way down · take me please · please take me home · you were that dog at the foot of the tree where a murder of crows were waiting to see just how graceful i would prove to be and it’s a long way down · take me please · please take me home · and i saw a picture of a blood red lamb with a busted lip and an innocent hand · at the end of the world He made His stand and it’s a long way down · take me please · please take me home


your best life now

a shepherd boy believed that he was not alone · he fought the lion’s teeth with the help of God · and when the war came he did not run away · he was not alone like every other day · so many soldiers who would not make a stand · he passed the armory with a slingshot in his hand · and five stones when only one would have been fine · for the words of God were on the line · a little girl was changed the day her heart bowed down · she broke her piggy bank to buy a gospel plow · she carried her bible to the far side of the earth · to tell how much the Lord is worth · she writes her letters but she rarely misses home · she studies mandarin and spends her nights alone · love mixed with poverty and both hands on the plow · oh this is her best life now · the watching world it will never understand · but the lion will lie down with the lamb · so praise for the olive branch and the snow white dove that lit upon the earth that God so loved


john one

the word became flesh and dwelt among us · and we beheld His glory · John cried out, “prepare the way of the Lord, who comes after me and before me” · behold the lamb of God who takes away your sins · receive, grace upon grace is given now to you · trust in His name, He’s given now to you · He’s full of grace and truth · the Word became flesh and dwelt among us and we beheld His glory · we fail and we fall and we die, we die everyday · and He takes it all away · receive grace upon grace is given now to you · trust in His name, He’s given now to you · He’s full of grace and truth · how sweet is the sound of Your grace it abounds for me · sweet is the sound of your grace


song for death

your retribution came a long, long time ago · with a friend of mine upon your killing floor · your claims on me are overrated and your victory it faded · on the morning that old stone was rolled away · keeper of the grave where is your sting · you revel in the sorrow you bring · well i have some words for you · the song you sing it is not true · and the plans you made for me are all but through · o grave, you could not hold Him down and now you can not hold me down · o my Jesus, He was pure and true · and He was way too much for you · love endured a cross and three days in the ground · He was sentenced to the earth without a sound · innocence was slain, He bore the weight of all my shame · and the gates of hell will tremble at His name · keeper of the grave where is your sting · you revel in the sorrow you bring · but like a bird in winter sings just before the days of spring · the hope of heaven is my diamond ring · o grave, you could not hold Him down and now you can not hold me down · o my Jesus, He was pure and true · and He was way too much for you


the fellowship of suffering

will you save yourself · will you climb down from that crooked cross and save yourself · you will find a friend in Christ · when you suffer in this life · there will be time for resting when you die · you’ll find a friend in Christ · there is peace on earth i’m sure · justin martyr will testify · and all the people you know will not understand but there is peace on earth · so will you open wide your mouth · and let good news come out · near and far · right where you are · or will you save yourself


a time to die

surrender to the weapons of our war · twenty one castles washed away on the shore · under the gun and warriors every one · fear is a dead man’s game · so go on and just let it go · there’s a time to live and a time to die don’t you know · so tell me who do you love · and how far does it go · who do you love · and are you sure · surrender is the weapon of our war · twenty one castles washed away on the shore · under the gun and warrior every one · tell me who do you love · and how far does it go · who do you love · how do you know · so go on and put your blade to my spine · everything will be alright · there’s a time to live and a time to die
