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.

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

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

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

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

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.
