Song 6 of 7in7 “Hold on girl!”

A country jig for the wife 🙂 about the wife…

Hold on girl I want you to stay
Don’t you go far away
Cuz you are my love
Hold on girl I want you to know
That im out of control
When you are around

I was hanging out by the side of my car
Down at parking lot
Hoping I would catch youre eye
And then it hit me that when I did
The words I thought wouldn’t cover it
How much I wanted to say that..

I asked you about some random book
Knowing I would make a silly look
Hoping that somehow that would
Catch a smile
And Im sure it musta been something else
That made you stay and talk some more
Cuz I know that my lines weren’t that hot

Song 5 for 7in7

I see a world of color gray
when all exposed is in the way
the color scheme is dead

the sulfur smell consumes the air
its far too much for me to bear
the color scheme is dead

Father do not haste
for your son is in need
my breathe is fading
and you’re what I need

How long Oh Lord
How long oh Lord
Will you forget me
How long oh Lord
How long oh Lord
Will you hide your face!

But you, you have been good to me

The Rider (song 4 for 7in7)

I heard the trumpets roar
And I saw the midday sky split
With angels singing choruses
In white sheets it was glamorous

Wrapped in robes of color red
Came enthroned the one who bled
Seated on a horse, seated on a horse

Came the way, truth and light
A voice like thunder filled the sky
Here comes the rider from on high


Faithful and true
The word of God
The savior son
Lord Jesus Christ
Glory to the word made flesh
Glory to the word made flesh

Come to judge the righteous
Come to raise the dead
Come to seek the vengeance
That’s rightful to his name

Come to catch the fallen
Come to end the pain
Come to smite the wicked
Come the lamb once slain

Here comes the rider from on high

Song 3 of 7in7

Were all concerned with righteousness
but all consumed with bloody mess
all distorted, all been broken
all have words left unspoken
With hands of failure reaching out
reaching out for all to see
all the wounds we have been given
open like a raging sea

but,


there is a truth in light of darkness
theres a son for all to see
there is still a form a beauty
left inside of you and me

We’ve all tried hard and fallen short
we’ve all been hated times before
our heart like metal bends to brake
when exposed to heat and flame
Dreams come shattered like dirty glass
when our trial is all we have
so we look to someone else
in desperate need of help


There is hope
there is peace
there is joy in time of need
there is rest
there is love
there is grace come from above

Song 2 for 7in7

Wasn’t able to post this yesterday…here it goes… from Psalm 118


Let those who fear the Lord say
His steadfast love endures
Let those who fear the Lord say
His love endures
Let those who fear the Lord say
His steadfast love endures
His love endures forever

 
There’s no thing that I can do
No song that I can sing
There are no words that I can say
To gain your love for me

 
There’s nothing I can bring
No costly offering
There are no riches I can give
To gain your love for me


No Death can keep us down
We know victory

my first attempt at 7in7

Based off of Romans 9 first 7in7
Based off of Romans 9 first 7in7

wrapped in grace

clothed with love
by the mercies
of our God
in you i am set free
not by flesh
nor in blood
but through promise
in the son
in you i am set free
 
not of my own 
but through your mercy alone
i have freedom in you
you gave me honor
you gave me a name
I have freedom in you
you make beauty
out of the mud
shaping me
to be loved
and i am set free
you came to replace
my helpless sinful state
and made new
what once was shamed
