about

Preson Phillips Tampa, Florida

Tampa Florida’s Preson Phillips has been called “a refreshing change from mainstream worship music [who’s] songs recall the wide-eyed fervor of the early 70s Jesus music artists” ~itunes review.

With an americana influenced sound ranging from folk to alt/country, newcomers should expect a real, almost personal, connection with the emotions and ancient spirituality of the music of Preson Phillips.

Track Name: River Flow
Some days, when the river flows
I worry where it’s taking me
Some days, when the river flows
I get scared, I get scared.

Some days, when the river flows
I can’t tell any one
And some days, when the river flows
You seem silent. You seem gone.

Some days, when the river flows
I get lost
And some days, when the river flows
I get scared, of losing everything I know.
Track Name: Tempters
This yearning soul, with fondness ever turning
This yearning soul, unfaithful as it were
Shall drop an anchor deep beneath the churning
This yearning soul, God holds it firm

My penchant grows for humble adoration
When light, it shines, though dusk has made me prey
Then cries my soul, in joyous abnegation
Lord take my soul, and mould it in thy way

Close up my heart like a flower
When tempters are looming
Bid me open when bright shines the sun
Fashion like iron
My footing
Let me stand where unaided men fall

Though light, it shines, mine eyes are prone to wander
Though love is true, my flesh succumbs to lies
And like a coin, when held before my eye lids
Obstructs the mount, from where my soul resides

Close up my heart like a flower
When tempters are looming
Bid me open when bright shines the sun
Fashion like iron
My footing
Let me stand where unaided men fall
And when they fall
May we reach out the hand of forgiveness
That our Father has seen us receive
Carving sinners and saints out a place at the
table to eat

The break of day, the darkness now retreating
And poised to lead, he takes me by the hand
From bended knee, I rise with fear receding
He leads me home, I scarce can keep it in!

Close up my heart like a flower
When tempters are looming
Bid me open when bright shines the sun
Fashion like iron
My footing
Let me stand where unaided men fall
Don’t let me fall
Don’t let me fall
Don’t let me fall
Don’t let me fall
Don’t let me fall
Track Name: Consumed
Save us from our arrogance
we are being consumed
Save us from extravagance
we are being consumed
Save us from a life of vaulting apathy
Save us from the lies of chasing vanity
Save us from idolatry
for we are being consumed

And Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God
Have mercy on me, A sinner
And Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God
Have mercy on me, A sinner

Save us from our primal ways
Bitterness and secret hates
While Jesus at the table waits, We are being consumed
Save us from our earthly kings
Controlled, enslaved, by earthly things
Though welcomed under sovereign wings
We are being consumed

And Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God
Have mercy on me, A sinner
And Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God
Have mercy on me, A sinner

We are consumed, We are consumed
The flesh has come between us!
We are consumed, We are consumed
Christ take your place among us

And Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God
Have mercy on me, A sinner
And Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God
Have mercy on me, A sinner
Track Name: Bread from My Table
Bread from Thy table
Wine from Thy glass
Steadfast and stable
Thrown out like chaff

Poured out and broken in two
Poured out and broken in two

Bread from our table
Wine from our glass
Gift from our Father
Pass through our hands

Poured out and broken in two
Poured out and broken for you

Come to the table
Bring what you have
Trade doubts and longings
Seize grace instead

Poured out and like wine over you
Poured out and broken for you

For itinerant and wandering
For transient and lame
Dishonorable and longing
For wayward and for saint

We are poured out and broken for you
We are poured out and broken for you

Sit at our table
Drink from our glass
Words from our prophets
Roots from our past

Sung out and spoken for you
Sung out and spoken for you
Track Name: Land and Sea
Oh God with arms so strong to save
Please stretch them o'er the restless wave
Lord calm the tempest dark and deep
Lay hope before these eyes that weep

Lord death is wild and life, it flees
Like sunny skies on open seas
We walk in light but still we know
It threatens life where'er we go

Lord speak the words and peace shall rise
Bid rest beneath these balmy skies
And from these darken deaths below
Raise vessels from the depths they've known

God my vessel now shall be
Who leads me o'er the raging sea
And evermore shall rise to Thee
Glad hymns of praise from land and sea

Raise up from your graves ye dead
Ye lost from land and sea
Rise above the tempest, all
Like vessels from the sea

Theres ever one majestic man
And, lo, he stayed the reapers hand
Though rom his veins, He still did bleed
His flesh became the gardeners seed

Three days, like forty years
Didst we realize our fears
But this widow, shall not be for long
Return my groom, restore my song

Raise up from your graves ye dead
Ye lost from land and sea
Rise above the tempest, all
Like vessels from the sea

Awaken life, Awaken life
Awaken life, Awaken life
Awaken life, Awaken life

Raise up from your graves ye dead
Ye lost from land and sea
Rise above the tempest, all
Like vessels from the sea

Oh God my vessel now shall be
Who leads me o'er the raging sea
And evermore shall rise to Thee
Glad hymns of praise from land and sea
Glad hymns of praise from land and sea
Glad hymns of praise from land and sea
