about

The Words EP was born out of a summer with family gathered for a funeral. It came out of many nights in prayer and many mornings and afternoons in the Word. I was surrounded with hurting people and I could not find the right words. So I began to ask and write. These songs were written as a Christmas gift that same year for my family to help ease their minds of the fears that had lingered, and to point them to our hope; Christ.

Track Name: Words
Words Lord, give me the words Lord
To touch Lord, to touch
Find Lord, help me to find Lord
As much Lord, as much

Priest and Prophet have been killed for far less
I'm free to speak truth but my lips aren't convinced

We've clung to butterflies with hopes to soar
We've shouted, "crucify" with hopes for more
Nothing, no nothing else, sweeter learned than this
Repent and be baptized for the forgiveness of all your sins

Priest and Prophet have been killed for far less
I'm free to speak truth but my lips aren't convinced

Words Lord, give me the words Lord
To touch Lord, to touch
Find Lord, help me to find Lord
As much Lord, as much
Track Name: God Most High
By the Word of God the heavens were made
Their starry host by the breath of His mouth
And the skies proclaim the work of His hands
Pouring forth speech to the ends of the earth

Clouds hang in beautiful mystery
All wonders of Him who deserves our praise

Praise. Praise.

Abraham you called, "come follow my way.
And your name will count as a blessing to all."
Just leave all your kin and pack up your wife
For little more than a voice in the wind

Praise. Praise.

God Most High, you reign forevermore
Jesus Christ, you reign forevermore
Holy Ghost, you reign forevermore

So when Catastrophe hits and Impossible is here
Like a thief that was handed your heart
And all you believed now hangs on a cross
And you've suddenly nowhere to start
Don't forget God allows what He hates to achieve the things He loves

So we praise, praise. Praise. Praise.

God Most High, you reign forevermore
Jesus Christ, you reign forevermore
Holy Ghost, you reign forevermore

We are your children and this is our song
That you gave us when you saved us.
