beautiful bride

"fighting this violence
with your feet wrapped in peace
sad tears and silence
now screams of joy
victory
beautiful bride
body of Christ
one flesh abiding
strong and unifying
fighting ends in forgiveness
unite and fight all division
beautiful bride"

again

"here you are down on your knees again
trying to find air to breathe again
and only surrender will help you now
I love you please see and believe again
love that you're never satisfied
with face value wisdom and happy lies
you take what they say and go back and cry
you're so close to me that you nearly died"

CHASM

"please, give me something
I'm so thirsty, I'm so thirsty
oh please let me warn them
don't you come here
don't bring anyone here
the chasm isn't fixed yet
take this water
drinking even deeper
living water"

this close

this close

"I had a dream that we were dead
but we pretended we still lived
with no regrets, we never bled
and we took everything life could give
and came up broken, empty handed in the end
in the hearts of the blind
something you'll never find
is a vision of light
with the voice of the dead, I'm screaming
I dont know who I am anymore
not once in life have I been real
but I've never felt this close before"

in the dark

"there’s only artificial light here
my flaws hide well here
I used to be afraid of cluttered noises
now I’m afraid of silence
fill this space
idle words
I’m scared to death of light and silence
Jesus kill me inside this
raise me up to live again
like you did, like you did
now I am mute despite myself
all of them are gone
the silence overtakes me
the idle words forsake me
and I am left to face me"

in the dark

"demolish all that sets you up against your rising up
confessing all that’s broken and watch the healing come
spread out your open hands
admit you’ve held them shut
turn all the way around

be swept away by this
time for surrender
spread out your open hands
and He will raise you up
confessing all that’s broken
and watch the healing come
spread out your open hands
admit you’ve held them shut
be swept away by this"

treasure

"as we dance while the sun starts to bleed
song of songs love is calling
daughter wake up from your sleep
refined I’ll become the most dazzling precious treasure
I’ll be treasured over all the earth
bearing the gift of a new heart
patience ablaze
I’m slowly burning"

circle

"his beautiful arm
is bloody and cut off
his heart ripped out to show me he loved me
but I wouldn't believe him
he did all that he could
I still would not believe him
I left his arms empty and tied
outstretched for me until he died
left his arms empty and tied
outstretched for me until he died
no man shows greater love
than when a man
lays down his life
for his beloved"

uncle bobby

"her death has been swallowed up by life
this dead will rise
dying to death and raising to life
the moment we became alive death was waiting, chasing

and all of us fell and kept breathing
one day, today
a sprits alive, a body has died"

arise

"sing to me about the end of the world
end of these hammers and needles for you
we’ll cry tonight
and in the morning we are new
stand in the sun
we'll dry your eyes
hold on to the world we all remember fighting for
there's still strength left in us yet
hold on to the world we all remember dying for
there's still hope left in it yet"
