LONGING AND YEARNING Tony Dart Daylight, start of a new day Oh Lord, Give me strength to do thy will Working, Lord these things I pray For time and my mission to fulfill In this life, there’s so much that we have to learn And my heart within me burns For a chance to speak with you Through each day battered by this world we are in With its glitter and its sin Only faith can bring us through Oh all the while we’re Longing and yearning for the day When he’ll come again and take our cares away But, until then we will watch and pray For our Lord to return. Savior, I come before you again Our light and the guardian of our way Savior, I know how often we sin I hope you’ll stand by us as we pray In this world, we must live beneath those who rule With a hand so often cruel We must look ahead, to you On those days when life just gets in the way And our hearts begin to stray Only faith can bring us through Oh all the while we’re Longing and yearning for the day When he’ll come again and take our cares away But, until then we will watch and pray For our Lord… For our Lord to return.

A LIGHT ON IN VIEW Patrick Foster When you’re thinking of someone, when you’ve woken at night, You’ve been watching them drowning, sinkin down out of sight, If the pressure is building, better don’t write them off, I’ll tell you a good thing, that gives me relief, that I’m not the judge, and I’m not a king, And if a brother is wandering, I won’t write them off, Leave the door open, And a light on in view, When it’s hard to keep on hoping, It’s exactly what you do, When you’ve said the things you had to, And you’re living what you preach, Know that you don’t do the saving, And no one’s truly out of reach, And remember just don’t write them off We’re all hoping for mercy, often begging for grace, If you’re hoping to get em, better give them their place, And if you find yourself wandering, just don’t write you off, Leave the door open, And a light on in view, When it’s hard to keep on hoping, It’s exactly what you do, When you’ve said the things you had to, And you’re living what you preach, Know that you don’t do the saving, And no one’s truly out of reach, And remember just don’t write them off

I SHOULD REMEMBER Patrick Foster Staring at the wall I feel old, old and I’ll, aching and chilled, dirty and filled with dust, Why am I ungrateful, it’s a joke, when everything I need is desperate for me, Filter, I’ve got to filter through my greed, there is a selfishness that laughs when I feed it, I know I’ll hear it til my death, til the breath goes out from my chest, and the dust fills what remains, I’ll let go of what has been, when I see you after everything has changed, when the world is right again, I hear God’s name roll off the hills, i t’s so much louder than its ever been, You’re the only one on earth who knows, The corners of me that I can’t define, that make me hide, How do you radiate the warmth you do, How does honey drip from your fingers through the bitterness, You remind me that God is good, When we all face our health, and fear of emptiness, When we don’t trust ourselves with the future of our loved ones, When our backs are breaking, breaking with burdens, That we pile upon ourselves just to keep from feeling useless, take up heart because God is good.

Old Songs 04:50
OLD SONGS Patrick Foster I’ve got sisters I’ve got brothers, and we’re tryin to get along, Singing our own parts, and joining in the same old song, And the old ones are the best ones if the harmonies are true, And you’re singin it with me, and I’m singing it with you. And you’re singin it with me, and I’m singing it with you. I know it’s a strange place to live, I know it’s a strange place to live, When you’re living in a world of sin, And fighting battles you can’t always win, When you’re living in a world of sin, there’s no choice but to forgive, If my arms over your shoulder, and you’re bearing up my weight, I’m sorry for my weakness, and I’m sorry for my state, But when I find my strength, and a brothers struggle burns, I want to take my time, to help hold them up in turn, If I’m living life untrue, will you help me find my feet, I’m an age where things are shifting, we can fall so out of sync, Will you hold me will you find me, when I’m lost out in the woods, We can make our footsteps steady, and keep them pacing toward the good, We can make our footsteps steady, and keep them pacing toward the good, I know it’s a strange place to live, I know it’s a strange place to live, When you’re living in a world of sin, And fighting battles you can’t always win, When you’re living in a world of sin, there’s no choice but to forgive, Can we testify, And edify, Side by side, Keep it from fading, Yes testify, And edify, In the dead of night, thinking of the dawn, Yes reach for light, In the dead of night, Yes reach for light, And keep thinking of the dawn.

Nineveh 05:00
NINEVEH Sasha Cooper See the city over yonder hill Where violence fills the days They don't follow any righteous rules Go and show them the way I see the city on the ridge and rill People in disarray They won't listen to my heart-felt call No matter what I say Three long days Spent wide awake Praying for my soul to save Now I know my place Nineveh Won't you heed my call? Turn your hearts of face his rage Nineveh Prepare To change your ways Yet forty days; Your fate See the city standing tall and still Where the people aren't afraid They run lawless in their unbound rule Go and show them the way I see the city with its own proud will Where the hearts have turned astray They will kill me with their swords and tools If I tell them to obey Three long days Spent wide awake Praying for my soul to save Now I know my place Nineveh Won't you heed my call? Turn your hearts of face his rage Nineveh Prepare To change your ways Yet forty days; Your fate See the city with its broken will Crying for repentance' sake Every man, woman, child alike Praying to change their fate

Not Your Own 04:29
NOT YOUR OWN Sasha Cooper Oh ye of little faith Why do you fear? Waves have no power when, the Son of God is here I tell you of things to come Like how I will go away To give to all the chance to rise At that day You are without guile You speak with no malice Yet the people refused you And the hope that you give You ask and ask again but still You only do his will When they accuse you don't speak back But stand silent and still They say you lie But you tell the truth Every word you speak is not your own Oh ye of little faith Why do you doubt When you have the LORD to help you out? Know you not what hath been said By prophets of old One of you shall betray Then I'll be gone! You are without guile You speak with no malice Yet the people refused you And the hope that you give You ask and ask again but still You only do his will When they accuse you don't speak back But stand silent and still They say you lie But you tell the truth Every word you speak is not your own They nail you to the cross saying That you blaspheme But you were just a messenger Of your father's will supreme You spoke what he taught you And they push away your plea For repentance For mercy You ask and ask again but still You only do his will When they accuse you don't speak back But stand silent and still They say you lie But you tell the truth Every word you speak is not your own

IN ANY SEASON Patrick Foster I don’t want to have a proud look, Focused on the things I've done and what it took, I don’t want to have a bitter tongue , Never speaking well of songs that others sung, I don’t want to have a worried heart, Thinking on the troubled times before they start, How do I want to be? Prepared to give a reason, Ready in any season, How do I want to be? Confident confident, I don’t want to be a selfish man, Taking from the needin' one because I can, Don’t want to have a wavering mind, Dancing for the devil ready any time, I don't want to be in constant doubt, Flushing all the evidence before it's out, How do I want to be? Radiating gospel, Tearing down the awful, How do I want to be? Confident, How do I want to be? Confident, confident

Holding On 04:14
HOLDING ON Patrick Foster I am trying to get a grip, And I'm sorry if it's hard, But I know there's still holding on, Holding on to be done, My arms are reaching out, And I'm stumbling around, Like a human being does, When he's searching for ground, And I don't want no quicksand, I don't want the mud, I want a mountain of granite, On bedrock of love, Come on let's just keep working You know the struggle is good, After all we're not stones, We've got growing to do, No it's not depressing, If we just keep on pressing, Keep paddling the ocean, Keep paddling the ocean, Keep on paddling the ocean, And keeping our compass true, Keeping our compass true, Keeping our compass true.

Tidepool 04:56
TIDEPOOL Patrick Foster I've lost things before, Like people and work, And money and music, Like memories and words, But I figure it's fair, Cause I've lost things like pain, And anger and guilt, And loneliness too, And all of it comes and goes, In a tide pool of joys and woes, And you can't be pulled out, If you don't want to go, Swimming around, Making mistakes, Scraping the rocks, Eating the waves, And all of it comes and goes, In a tide pool of joys and woes, And you can't be pulled out, If you don't want to go, Eating the waves, Between the breaks, Floating on faith, And aiming for land.

Seeing God 04:12
SEEING GOD Patrick Foster When I’m overcome, caught off guard, When I see a sign, and it takes me apart, Now my legs have strength, they’ve carried far, But how will I stand, seeing God, I know I’ll be changed, and my body it won’t be the same, But as I am now it’s a struggle just thinking of Seeing God, When I fill my lungs, and I’m satisfied, and I find some relief from the troubles of life, Whether shaking in fear, or beaming in awe, How will I breathe, seeing God, I know I’ll be changed, and my body it won’t be the same, But as I am now it’s a struggle just thinking of Seeing God.
