about

My first CD, "Liberating Boundaries" attempted to say something profound, to exhort others, and paint some pictures with words and music. This CD is just me worshipping God. I love Jesus. Period.

Track Name: I Need You
I NEED YOU

Ripples on the ocean, growing into waves
A little faith in motion, now You are my Savior
I’m falling on my knees, exposing all my soul
You make me complete, fill me where I’m not quite whole
I need You
I need You
I need You
I need You

My sun was always setting. My cup was never full.
Now I’m bursting with light and joy and I’m giddy as a love-struck fool
Catch me in Your arms. I’m giving You control
Press into my heart. Fill me where I’m not quite whole

I need You

I am Yours. My hope is in Your Word
In Your love I can rest secure.

I was made for flying, but was contented at a walk.
All my dreams and heart’s desires were hidden in the dark
No I’m reaching for Your plan. To know You is my goal.
Open up Your hand. Fill me where I’m not quite whole

I need You
Track Name: Hang With Me
HANG WITH ME

I admit that up til now I never carried my cross
I only followed You when there wasn’t any cost
I’m just like those believers who couldn’t stay awake
When the only thing You asked of them was to keep watch and pray

You said, “Hang with me, hang with me, hang with me tonight.
Don’t leave me, don’t’ grieve me, just be with me awhile
I don’t know if you believe me, but I love you more than life
So hang with me, hang with me, hang with me.”

I imagine how it felt when they abandoned You that night
You knew it was for them that You’d soon lay down Your life
Your blood was made to cover every sin since Adam’s fall.
My pride, my greed and anger: You said, “Just let it all…

Hang with me, hang with me, hang with me tonight
I’ll bear it, I swear it, I will pay the price
I don’t know if you believe it, but I love your more than life
So hang with me, hang with me, hang with me”

Lord, I know I’ve let You down a thousand times before
I don’t wanna shut You out of my life anymore
So now I’m on my knees and I know just what I need
More of You each day, so please stay….

With me, with me, hang with me tonight
Don’t leave me, don’t grieve me, be with me awhile
I don’t know if You believe me, but I love You more than life
So hang with me, hang with me, hang with me.
Track Name: Holy Lord of Life
HOLY LORD OF LIGHT

Holy Lord of light, how I love You.
Only source of life, how I need You
You are the one who formed me in Your image
I was created by Your love.

Holy Lord of light, how I love You
Only source of life, how I need You
You are the one who found me in my weakness
I am delivered by Your love

Where do I end and You, my Lord, begin?
You breathe out the very life that I breathe in.
Draw me to Your side and I forever will abide in You.

You are the Alpha and Omega.
The beginning and the end, my Father and my friend
And I am lost without Your love.
Track Name: God
GOD

God, sing to me a lover’s song
Hold me when the nights are long
Wrap me in Your arms
God, meet me in the morning light
Teach me from Your book of life
Show me who You are

And I will follow You
And I’ll obey Your commands
And if I can’t see my enemy, I know that You watch over me
For I can see Your footprints in the sand.

God, how I long to honor You in every little thing I do
Guide me in Your truth
But God, You know of my wandering heart
How every time I fall apart, You have made me new.

You did not leave in my need, You carried me.
God, You did not abandon me. In my darkest hour of need, You carried me.
Track Name: Unworthy Me
UNWORTHY ME

Whenever I fall away from God,
I feel the blindfolds coming on
I see the darkness of my heart
I feel my world fall apart
Whenever I fall away from God,
I hear a voice just like a shepherd calling me back home,
Singing songs of love

Why do I ever walk away?
Why do I wander and I stray from a love that’s willing to lay His life down
For me, unworthy me?

Whenever I fall away from God,
I find myself stuck in a mire and I begin to see
Just how deep my misery
But when I turn and come back home,
I see the Father standing there with His arms open wide
He runs to draw me to His side.

I’m unworthy, so unworthy, but that’s the beauty of His mercy.
Track Name: The Law
THE LAW

Am I poor in spirit? Do I mourn for the lost?
Am I meek and gentle? Do I thirst for righteousness
Am I merciful and forgiving? Am I pure in heart?
Am I a peacemaker who’s willing to be torn apart?
When will I see the kingdom of heaven?
When will I be filled?

Jesus, it’s so hard to obey and to walk in Your way.
Jesus, You’re the vine and I’m the branch, will You help me understand?

Am I patient? Am I kind? Do I envy? Am I filled up with pride?
Am I rude? Am I selfish? A I angry, filled with bitterness?
When will I know perfection in love?
When will I see clearly?

Jesus, it’s so hard to obey and to walk in Your way.
Jesus, You’re the vine and I’m the branch, will You help me understand?


High or low, I will go there with You.

I shall have no other gods
I shall make no idol thing
I’ll not take Your name in vain
I shall keep the Sabbath clean
I shall honor my family
I’ll not hate or lust or lie
I’ll not cover to steal the things that are not mine
You’re perfect Law, it fills me with life.
Your Word is my delight.

But Jesus, it’s so hard to obey and to walk in Your way.
Jesus, You’re the vine and I’m the branch, will You help me understand?
Track Name: Lord, Change My Heart
LORD CHANGE MY HEART

Lord, change my heart, make me as You are
Holy, even as You’re holy
Lord, take my life, a willing sacrifice
And with the mind of Christ, I’ll give you glory

And I will trust in Your word
And I will hope in Your love
And rest assured that Your grace is enough
By the power of Your blood.
Track Name: Seek You First
SEEK YOU FIRST

A thousand things I think I need, and a million I desire
Like a place to prop my feet beside a cosy fire.
I want a love that lasts forever and a shoulder I can cry on
And a month of sunny weather and friends I can rely on
Well, I long to fill my hunger and to satisfy my thirst,
But Lord, I must seek You first.

I’d like to trade all of my worry for a little peace of mind
And to give up all this hurry and just take my time
To live a life with no regretting and, when I go to sleep at night,
Rest assured all my tomorrows will be looking bright.
I’d love to own a mansion and have bank accounts that burst
But Lord, I must seek You first.

Lord, You made me and You know me
You feed me and You clothes me
Better than the flowers and the birds
And all I have to do…. is seek You.

I have given, I have taken.
I’ve been hanging by a thread.
But I’ve never been forsaken or out begging bread.
If I focus on Your kingdom and I seek Your righteousness,
You have taught me not to worry about al the rest.
So I’ll trust You with my future
For You’ve given me Your word
And Lord, I will see You first.
Track Name: Every Waking Moment
EVERY WAKING MOMENT

Kiss me with the kisses of Your mouth
And hide me in the shelter of Your wings
Help me fall so desperately in love with You
That every waking moment I will sing Your praises

Awe me with the ownder of Your grace
And fill me with the wisdom of Your Words.
Help me fall so desperately in loe with You
That every waking moment I will thirst for more.
Help my heart to believe that You will never leave or forsake me
Help my mind to rest and trust
That You know what is best for me.
Track Name: You Are the Same
YOU ARE THE SAME

If I called out Your name in a crowd, would you turn around?
Would you speak to me?
If I touched You on the hem of Your clothes, would Your power flow? Would you meet my needs
The way You do in the stories I read?

You are the same today and forever
Your power does not change
You still command an army of angels
I still can call on Your name
I may say I see no miracles today,
But You are the same.

When my life is like a raging sea, will You reach for me
Will you take my hand?
When my heart is broken and lame, will You ease my pain
Will you help me stand?
Will you calm my storm with a whispered command?

You are the same today and forever
Your power does not change
You still command an army of angels
I still can call on Your name
I may say I see no miracles today,
But You are the same.

And if You found me guilty
If You found me naked and ashamed
You would show me grace
You would stand condemned in my place

For You are the same today and forever
Your mercy does not change
You still command an army of angels
I still can call on Your name
I may say I see no miracles today,
But You are the same.
Track Name: Confines
CONFINES

Steam and ice – can water be dry?
Spirit made Man – God, how can I understand
You go beyond the confines of my mind
You go far beyond the confines of my mind.

Everlasting, no beginning and no end.
Almighty, omnicent, You are the great I AM.
You go beyond the confines of my mind.

And You love me, You hold me, You see me, You know me
You fill me when I am empty
You lead me, You chose me
You go beyond the confines of my mine….

Who am I, O God, that You should care for me?
Self-serving, unworthy, but You died to set me free
You go beyond the confines of my mind…

You are the rock beneath my feet
You are the treasure that I seek
You are the wind beneath my wings
You are the reason that I sing
You are the Ancient of all days
You are the Light, the Truth, the Way
You are the fountain where I’m clean
You are all I ever need
You are the Alpha and Omega,
My God and my Savior
You are the Love of my soul
You are the one who makes me whole.
You go beyond the confines of my mind.
Track Name: Be Glorified
BE GLORIFIED

You are my joy; You are the reason I can face the morning
You are my hope and I will trust in You alone
You are my strength and when I rest in You there is no striving
You are my peace for You have set my heart free

Jesus, I offer You my life
Jesus, be glorified

You are the sun, You are the one who holds the constellations
You are the light, You brighten up my blackest night
You are the rain, pouring down new life on all creating
You are the air – what I need is always there

Jesus…
Be glorified now in the words that speak
Be glorified here in these hands and these feet
Be glorified through every breath that I breathe
Be glorified, my God in me.
Track Name: Reign
REIGN

I was there, I saw them swear and spit out His name
I was there, I saw His nakedness and His shame
I was there when they put the crown of thorns on His head
And laughed while He bled
When they pushed him up that hill called Calveray…that was for me

I was there when they drove the nails into His hands and feet
I was there when they challenged Him to set Himself free
I was there when they pierced His side and gambled for His clothes
And mocked Him, “King of the Jews”
When He breathed His last and died there on that tree…that was for me

And darkness reigned. Thunder shook the earth, the curtain tore away.
Because of all my sin, Jesus was betrayed. It reigned.

I was there, I saw the empty tomp open wide
I was there, I touched His hands and felt His wounded side.
I was there when He said to tell the news to everyone:
that Christ the Messiah has come
He was taken up to heaven and I saw Him sitting next to God
And Jesus reigns. He set the captives free, He’s broken every chain.
He’s seated on the throne, full of majesty
Worthy of all praise, He is Prince of Peace
Jesus reign. Come and reign.
In our hearts, in our homes, in Your church, in this world!
Jesus, reign. Come and reign. Lord, You reign.
Track Name: Do You Know
DO YOU KNOW

Do you know that Jesus loves you? O, He loves you.
Do you know He’ll never reject you ?
He’ll give you beauty for ashes.
He’ll give you joy for your pain.
Do you know He died just to be with you and He’d do it all over again.

So believe His love and receive His love.
Accept His love, don’t reject His love.
He gave His live just to save you life and He’d do it all over again.
Track Name: Father's House
FATHER’S HOUSE

I’m in my father’s house and there I will abide
For nothing in this world can pull me from His side
Though trials overwhelm, the fortress where I dwell
Is a tower undefiled in a world that’s weak and wild
I know I am His child, safe in my father’s house.

I’m in my Father’s hands, so gentle, yet so strong.
In this vast universe, I know where I belong.
When obstacles dissuade me, I shall not be afraid.
In His mighty grip of grace, in His comforting embrace
I’ve found my resting place, safe in my Father’s hands.

I’m in my Father’s heart, and I am His delight.
He meets my every need. I’m precious in His sight.
He lifts me from the mire, He grants all I desire
There’s no greater love than He who laid down His life for me
I’ll spend eternity safe in my Father’s house.
