I would like to thank...
Jesus, for giving us the gift of musical expression and the privilege of worshiping Him through it. My wife, for her incredible support and love! The wonderful group of musicians who worked on this project with me. You are all so talented and a huge blessing! The many people who have encouraged and supported my song writing, musical development, and worship leading.
You will judge the living and the dead. Every tribe and tongue, their knee will bend. But I will not wait till the very end. I will sing Your praise right where I stand. I will worship, I will worship I will sing Your praise without end I will worship, I will worship Halleluiah, Halleluiah Halleluiah, Hallelu, Halleluiah Halleluiah, Halleluiah I will worship, I will worship I will worship You
This song was birthed out of a dream in which I heard and saw a congregation of people bursting into passionate, spontaneous praise, yet all singing the same song.
GOD OF GLORY
You are worthy... of all glory God of Glory, God of Power God of heaven came to me God of love & all compassion Came to break my misery You are the truth, You are the Savior You've come to set the captive free You've come to love, You've come heal us You've come to set the prisoner free God of glory, You came to save me Set us free, set us free I am free, I am free All creation gives You glory All creation gives You praise Joining with angelic singing We declare Your Name is Holy You are worthy... of all glory
HOW I LOVE YOU
How I love You, Oh, Oh how I love You How I love to sing Your praises. Cuz You're so good. You're so good to me. For all the ways that You have shown You're faithful, And all the blessings You've poured out on us. For all the ways that You have said You love me, I will sing Your praises for ever more. Oh Lord. For all the riches You've prepared in heaven, And all the treasures we enjoy on earth. I could never give You enough glory, So I will sing You're praises for ever more. Oh Lord.
I ADORE YOU
I adore You, I lay my life before You, I adore You, I worship at Your feet You alone are worthy, my God You alone are holy You are what I live for And You are why I sing I've got to sing Your praise With a voice so loud that the deaf can hear My Father, You deserve To hear the praise of the nations pourin' out Can You hear it? Can You hear it? Can You hear my love for You? I'm here to lavish You, With a love that flows from the debt I owe Your sacrifice for me Is enough to set my heart on fire. Can You feel it? Can You feel it? Can You feel my love (for You)?
GIVE ME YOUR GLORY
Show me your glory God Cover me with your hand Shield me just enough So I can have as much as I can stand I never wanna lose Your holy presence So if You want me to go out You've got to go with me Give me Your glory, Lord Send me with Your power, God If I'm to walk this road, Into Your promised land Give me Your favor, Lord Make me a blessing, God Let signs and wonders show I have an awesome God Give me Your glory... Make me a blessing
Based upon Exodus 33:15,18 & 22. Just as Moses, we want to move forward for the Kingdom, but never at the expense of the presence of God
PRECIOUS IS THE LAMB OF GOD
Precious is the Lamb of God Precious is the Lamb of God Precious is the Lamb of God ... Who bled and died for my sin You are holy You are holy You are worthy You are worthy ... To receive all the glory
This song was birthed spontaneously during a small group worship time at my home.
SHADOW OF GLORY
He who dwells in the secret, The secret place of the Most High. He will abide under the shadow, The shadow of the Almighty. We will dwell in Your shadow of glory, We will abide in Your shadow of grace. Because you have set your love on Me, I will deliver you. And I will set you on high, Because you have known My name. We'll live, in Your shadow of glory. We will stay, in Your shadow of grace.
Based upon Psalm 91. This was written during a time of meditation at a regional prayer summit.
OH, MY JESUS
Oh, my Jesus ... the Savior of the world My Jesus ... the Savior of the world My Jesus ... I'm glad you came for me ... I'm glad you came for me Great are You Lord, Great are You Lord Great are You Lord, You reign in majesty ... for me You are the One who gave Your life for me You came to set me free You came to earth and died upon a tree ... for me Righteous ... Holy ... You are so ... Precious ... Lovely ... You are to me You came to earth, you gave your life, You died for me, you set me free - - -
MY GOD AND KING
You are compassion, the God of grace Slow to anger, unfailing in love Forgiveness and mercy, flow from Your throne And life giving glory, emanates from Your face And I don't wanna turn away from the glory of your face. Cuz you're the one I love, the One I need So I enter the Holy of Holies You are ... My God and, my God and King, You are my everything, You are my God and King I've just got to say, I've just got to say...
ALL MY RESERVATIONS
Like a tree in Your fingertips, Oh Father I am moved by Your Spirit like the wind Abandoned to the movement of Your loving All my reservations fade away All my reservations fade away And I dance with You, sweet Jesus I fly with You on Your wind I move in Your gentle loving And all my reservations fade away And all my reservations fade away
This song was written as I stood in the presence of God, worshiping with my hands raised. I could feel Him gently moving my arms as with a breeze. I envisioned the large willow tree outside the house as these words were sung spontaneously.
COME UNDER THE WATERFALL
From the north to the south, From the east to the west His (My) Spirit's falling, His (My) Spirit's calling His (My) Spirit calls (I) Come under the waterfall (I) Come under the waterfall (I) Stay under the waterfall (I) Stay under the waterfall. A gentle mist billows down, Refreshing love settles 'round. Now a tender rain has begun to fall, As peace sends out His steady call. Harder now, pours the rain, Mercy falls, and it drowns my shame, yeah ... come & drown my shame, yeah My soul cries out, "Father I want more" Come on Lord, Let Your river pour I bow my head, and step on in Let Your goodness fall and Your freedom begin
This song was birthed spontaneously in a small group setting. It depicts the presence of God using the imagery of a waterfall; gradually approaching and increasingly feeling it's effects. We all must decide how close we will get to 'the Divine Waterfall'.
COME WITH YOUR GLORY
Come, with Your glory Lord Come, bring Your glory now (down) Come, with Your glory On our land to - day yeah We need Your, fresh fire We need Your, fresh wind We need Your, fresh fire The atmosphere of heaven The atmosphere of heaven Bring the atmosphere of heaven here Bring it near... Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done On earth as it is, as it is in heaven We need Your fresh fire... Lord
