about

Recorded from January to July, 2011. Originally I had in mind to just record 5 or 6 hymns, finger-style on a nylon string guitar, for a very minimalist production. Somehow it expanded beyond that and I included not just traditional hymns, but some which I wrote, as well. Production quality has improved somewhat, thanks to the condenser mics I got for Christmas, but I believe we managed to maintain the intimacy of the previous releases. We hope you enjoy it.

Track Name: Water to Wine
Wintertime, I’ve waited so long
All the earth’s beginning to thaw
The water is turning to wine
He’s coming again for his bride

Mountain stream has started to flow
Oak and apple shed off their snow
and all of the creatures arise
the sun is beginning to shine

In the grass the lilies have grown
Just to see him when he comes home
When all of his children will sing
praises for the glorious King

Wintertime I’ve waited so long
All the earth’s beginning to thaw
The water is turning to wine
He’s coming again for his bride
Track Name: My Father's World
This is my Father’s world, and to my listening ears
All nature sings, and round me rings the music of the spheres.
This is my Father’s world: I rest me in the thought
Of rocks and trees, of skies and seas;
His hand the wonders wrought.

This is my Father’s world, the birds their carols raise,
The morning light, the lily white, declare their Maker’s praise.
This is my Father’s world: He shines in all that’s fair;
In the rustling grass I hear Him pass;
He speaks to me everywhere.

This is my Father’s world. O let me ne’er forget
That though the wrong seems oft so strong, God is the ruler yet.
This is my Father’s world, why should my heart be sad?
The lord is King—let the heavens ring. God reigns—let the earth be glad.

This is my Father’s world. I walk a desert lone.
In a bush ablaze to my wondering gaze God makes His glory known.
This is my Father’s world, a wanderer I may roam
Whate’er my lot, it matters not,
My heart is still at home.

This is my Father’s world: the battle is not done:
Jesus who died shall be satisfied,
And earth and Heav’n be one.
Track Name: Abbeville
Come, Holy Spirit, come,
With energy divine,
And on this poor, benighted soul
With beams of mercy shine.

Melt, melt this frozen heart;
This stubborn will subdue;
Each evil passion overcome,
And form me all anew

Mine will the profit be,
But Thine shall be the praise;
And unto Thee will I devote
The remnant of my days.
Track Name: He is Risen
There by the tomb,
dug in the ground
Mary and the others
had gathered round
but on that day,
He could not be found
He is risen, Hallelujah
Hallelu

Oh my sweet love,
my faithful bride -
she spoke in hushed whispers
on the day that she died
she said “soon my dear,
I’ll be by his side”
now she is with Him, Hallelujah
Hallelu

Oh heart sink not
into that mire
cast off the empty praise
for which we men aspire
incline your ear
to hear that heavenly choir
sing He is risen, Hallelujah
Hallelu
Track Name: Doxology
Praise God from whom all blessing flow
Praise Him all creatures here below
Praise Him above ye heavenly host
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost
Track Name: How Deep The Father's Love For Us
How deep the Father's love for us,
How vast beyond all measure
That He should give His only Son
To make a wretch His treasure

How great the pain of searing loss,
The Father turns His face away
As wounds which mar the chosen One,
Bring many sons to glory

Behold the Man upon a cross,
My sin upon His shoulders
Ashamed I hear my mocking voice,
Call out among the scoffers

It was my sin that held Him there
Until it was accomplished
His dying breath has brought me life
I know that it is finished

I will not boast in anything
No gifts, no power, no wisdom
But I will boast in Jesus Christ
His death and resurrection

Why should I gain from His reward?
I cannot give an answer
But this I know with all my heart
His wounds have paid my ransom
Track Name: We Are One
We are two, we are one, we are
We are two, we are one, we are
Oh the Lord is good and true
he brought me to you
We are two, we are one, we are

We are two, we are one, we are
We are two, we are one, we are
The Lord, from Adam's side,
took a rib to make a bride
We are two, we are one, we are

O, Let us sing his praise
my Love, always
and magnify his name
for all of our days

We are two, we are one, we are
We are two, we are one, we are
Oh sweet Love of mine
eat the bread and take the wine
Amen
we are one, we are
we are
Track Name: I Have Decided
I have decided to follow Jesus,
I have decided to follow Jesus,
I have decided to follow Jesus,
No turning back, no turning back.

Though none go with me, still I will follow,
Though none go with me, still I will follow,
Though none go with me, still I will follow,
No turning back, no turning back.

The world behind me, the cross before me,
The world behind me, the cross before me,
The world behind me, the cross before me,
No turning back, no turning back.
Track Name: What Wondrous Love
When I was 23, boozing-oh, boozing-oh
When I was 23, left my home
When I was 23, said ‘Father give to me
My share of what you’re worth, I will roam, I will roam
I kissed my mother’s face and I left home

I wandered far from there, gave my love, gave my love
I wandered far from there, gave my love
She wore a pretty gown, and she let her tresses down
and the boys would gather round, O my love, O my love
the boys would gather round her, my love

But she cared not for me, O my soul, O my soul
No, she cared not for me, O my soul
As I lay fast asleep, she took her leave of me
and left me not a thing, O my soul, O my soul
and left me not a thing, O my soul

As I was sinking down, weary boned, O my soul
As I was sinking down, I missed my home
I set off down the road, for to take a servant’s load
back to my father’s home I would go, I would go
O never more to roam, O my soul

What wondrous love is this, O my soul, O my soul
What wondrous love is this, O my soul
What wondrous love is this, met with a father’s kiss
while I was far from home, O my soul, O my soul
He met me far from home, O my soul
Track Name: Nothing But The Blood
What can wash away my sin?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
What can make me whole again?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Refrain:
Oh! precious is the flow
That makes me white as snow;
No other fount I know,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.


For my pardon, this I see,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
For my cleansing this my plea,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Refrain

Nothing can for sin atone,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
Naught of good that I have done,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

Refrain

This is all my hope and peace,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
This is all my righteousness,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
