Track Name: The People Of His Choice
Father Father, Come to me now
for I am needy, of Your mercy.
Holy mercies, firm and sure.
From eternity the same.
through eternity endure, endure...

Let the ransomed now rejoice.
The ones called out among the nations
now the people of His choice.

Sing of His name!
All expanse of land and sea,
all that swim and all that breathe.
His glory’s painted
on the branches of the trees,
in the changing of the leaves.

Let the elders speak His name.
Let us hear ancient tales,
and let us mourn for how we’ve failed.
Let the children now rejoice,
when it falls upon their ears
the proclamations of God's voice!

As long as life beats in these shells
keep Your words upon our lips,
and living water in our wells.
Our hands are raised,
calling out to be redeemed
from certain death's eternity.
Give us new names.
Keep us ever close to thee.
Once enslaved, and now made free!


Words by Preson Phillips
Track Name: Breather Of Life
You are the words that flow from my mouth.
You are the song I hear when noise rings out.
You are the life that has formed me from dust.
You are the peace that is teaching us to love.

Breather of life, breathe on us once again.
Breather of life, breathe on us once again.

You are the story that we love to share.
You are the ending that will guide us there.
You are the plot in which our lives unfold.
The legend of truth that we all were searching for.

Breather of life, breathe on us once again.
Breather of life, breathe on us once again.

And my soul will sing Your praise.
And my song will ring for days.
And my heart, it will be changed.
Hallowed be, Hallowed be Your name!

And my soul will sing your praise.
And my song will ring for days.
And my heart, it will be changed.
Hallowed be, Hallowed be Thy name!

Breather of life, breathe on us once again.
Breather of life, breathe on us once again.



Words by Preson Phillips
Track Name: Pilgrim
Pilgrim, burdened with thy sin,
come the way to Zion’s gate.
There till mercy lets thee in:
knock, and weep, and watch, and wait.

Knock — He knows the sinner’s cry.
Weep — He loves the mourner’s tears.
Watch - for saving grace is nigh.
Wait till heavenly light appears.

Hark, it is the Bridegroom’s voice,
“Welcome, pilgrim to thy rest!”
Now within the gates rejoice:
safe, and sealed, and bought, and blest.

Safe - from all the lures of vice.
Sealed - by signs the chosen know.
Bought - by love, and life the price
Blest the mighty debt to owe.

Holy pilgrim, what for thee
in a world like this remain?
From thy guarded breast shall flee:
fear, and shame, and doubt, and pain.

Fear - the hope of Heav’n shall fly.
Shame - from glory’s view retire.
Doubt - in resurrection die.
Pain in endless bliss expire.

Track Name: Grace and Peace
Oh my soul, has come to be an instrument of hope.
My Lord has made me useful.
Come now child, lay your burdens down
and trade for rest your debt.
Come now, and be made well.

God of Light shine down.
I am overwhelmed.

Grace and Peace
to the weary soul who’s heart is full of holes.
Grace and Peace
to the fatherless and widow we declare.
Grace and Peace
to the prodigal who’s traded love for gold.
Grace and peace
from a God who’s yoke is easy, and His load is light.

Oh my Lord, I am set me apart,
please let me not be still.
Find me in Your will.
Take myself, I offer up this empty cup,
let it be filled with Your life.

I cannot be still.
I cannot be still.

Grace and Peace
to the weary soul who’s heart is full of holes.
Grace and Peace
to the fatherless and widow we declare.
Grace and Peace
to the prodigal who’s traded love for gold.
Grace and peace
from a God who’s yoke is easy and His load is light.

I was hopeless, and You led with light.
I was lifeless, and You gave me life.
I was drowning, and You cast a line.
I was useless, now I’m alive in You!

Grace and Peace
to the weary soul who’s heart is full of holes.
Grace and Peace
to the fatherless and widow we declare.
Grace and Peace
to the prodigal who’s traded love for gold.
Grace and peace
from a God who’s yoke is easy and His load is light.



Words by Preson Phillips
Track Name: Deuteronomy Six
I have heard you Oh Lord,
and the choice that you offered
between blessing and curse
for blessed are the ones who remain in You.

Lord stretch out Your hand,
and lay Caanan before me.
Ability is not what I have,
just Your tender mercies,
and Grace that falls like rain.

We will hold with our hands,
we will tie to our heads.
We will sing to our children
the things we have read.
We will hail when we lie down,
and rise from our beds.
For as long as skies remain,
our king will reign.

I come to the garden alone,
while the dew is still on the roses,
and the voice that I hear,
the Son of God discloses.

‘Twas the same voice that led me from bonds,
and frees all who follow from toil.
I’ve followed that sound through the wilderness,
it has led me to beautiful shores.

We will hold with our hands,
we will tie to our heads.
We will sing to our children
the things we have read.
We will hail when we lie down,
and rise from our beds.
For as long as skies remain,
our king will reign.

I will sing of mercy,
love has proved me wrong,
there is still hope!

We will hold with our hands,
we will tie to our heads.
We will sing to our children
the things we have read.
We will hail when we lie down,
and rise from our beds.
For as long as skies remain,
our king will reign.


Words by Preson Phillips
Track Name: What Breadth?
God of light please save us from ourselves,
from idols quickly filling up our wells.
All our hope was spilled like water
as we turn from truths of old.
All our lofty places broken,
placed in hands that could not hold!

Father on my knees I stand sustained.
Before whom all in heav’n and earth are named.
All my riches turn to sand and all my striving left in vain,
All your fullness now surrounds me as I comprehend with all the saints.

What heighth?
What depth?
What length?
What breadth?
Did Christ endure
...and love, in death!

Glory from your people rises still,
Generations pass, still mercy fills!
Oh the God of ancient stories told, who conquers and redeems.
Come and reconcile your people, burn like fire and spread like seas!

What heighth?
What depth?
What length?
What breadth?
Did Christ endure
... and love, in death!

Hallelujah... what depth of mercy calls my name?
Hallelujah... what love that knows no boundaries?
Hallelujah... what depth of mercy calls my name?
Hallelujah... what love that knows no boundaries?


Words by Preson Phillips
Track Name: Hallelujah
Your heart oh God is flowing deep
with love so pure that covers me.
You work despite our selfishness,
bring love where hate is born.

You satisfy the weary and
defend the cause of righteous ones
who bring Your loving ways into the world.

And I have seen Your light shine in the dark.
And I have seen Your hands work in my heart.

And I will run and not be weary,
walk and not grow faint.
And You will my shelter,
protection from the rain.
And when the waters rise,
I’ll stand and sing Your name, oh God!

Hallelujah,
I will sing Your name.
Hallelujah,
I will sing Your name.
Hallelujah,
I will sing Your name, oh God.

Take this wretched soul of mine.
Despoil, renew, and make divine.
Oh save me from myself, and keep me whole.
Let evil thoughts depart from me,
and visions of your kingdom be
what keep me strong and anchored in the storms.
Lord, You are changing all things to Your will,
so teach me Lord to trust You and be still.

And I will run and not be weary,
walk and not grow faint.
And You will my shelter,
protection from the rain.
And when the waters rise,
I’ll stand and sing Your name, oh God!

Hallelujah,
I will sing Your name.
Hallelujah,
I will sing Your name.
Hallelujah,
I will sing Your name, oh God.


Words by Preson Phillips
Track Name: Psalm 23
The Lord is my shepherd,
I have all that I need.
He leads to the greenest meadows,
and by most peaceful streams.
When I am in need,
He gives me strength,
When my path is winding,
He makes it straight.

Cause all we like sheep, have gone astray.
Found lost and wandering in the dark,
rescued and carried until the day.
And all we like sheep, have gone astray.
Taught how to lay beside still waters,
now basking in your grace.

Though I walk through the valley,
and death’s all around,
I will not be afraid, not be afraid.
Your rod always offers protection and Lord,
Your staff draws me in, and I am made safe.

And You’ve cooked me a feast and laid it before me.
Protected my head, so now I know nothing but
goodness and mercy and unfailing love,
and I will dwell here, Lord!

Cause all we like sheep, have gone astray.
Found lost and wandering in the dark,
rescued and carried until the day.
And all we like sheep, have gone astray.
Taught how to lay beside still waters,
now basking in your grace.


Words by Preson Phillips
Track Name: Marked By Reformation
Hear these words,
I’m standing here,
to voice my faults, admit my fears.

Im crying loud,
so You can hear.
Cup Your hand, and bend Your ear.

Savior come,
and set me free.
This heavy load,
remove from me

Send Your word.
Make wisdom known.
Wash me clean,
white as snow

This is my song of penance,
crying in repentance.
Longing just to trade my
sins for Your forgiveness.
This is my confession,
knowing I'm in debt, and
begging for redemption,
marked by reformation.

Oh, forgive me Lord.
Oh, forgive me Lord.

Father God,
restore in me
the bond You shared
with man and Eve.

The Garden grew,
and love sustained.
Please make things like,
that place again.

This is my song of penance,
crying in repentance.
Longing just to trade my
sins for Your forgiveness.
This is my confession,
knowing I'm in debt, and
begging for redemption,
marked by reformation.

Oh, forgive me Lord.
Oh, forgive me Lord.

Hear these words,
I’m standing here,
to voice my faults, admit my fears.

Im crying loud,
so You can hear.
Cup Your hand, and bend Your ear.


Words by Preson Phillips
Track Name: Open For Me
There is a King who’s blood brings forth new life.
Who’s dwelling place gleams with bliss beyond measure,
immortal and sweet.

Is heaven so near?
Does glory come nigh?
It’s welcome I fear,
as His holiness shines.

And can it be?
Oh the great depth of mercy
cause there stands a gate
left open for me,
left open for me,
left open for me,
left open for me.

Radiance gleamed
from the doors and the windows,
and there stands a gate,
left open for me,
left open for me,
left open for me,
left open for me.

Sing, oh redeemed!
Your Savior has vanquished what you were before,
and given you peace.
Your wandering soul,
it will wander no more.

Cause you’ve walked down a path,
and it led to a tree,
and it led by a tomb
that was open and clean!

And can it be?
Oh the great depth of mercy
cause there stands a gate
left open for me,
left open for me,
left open for me,
left open for me.

Radiance gleamed
from the doors and the windows,
and there stands a gate,
left open for me,
left open for me,
left open for me,
left open for me.

Ohhh, wandering soul!,
enter His life, and enter His gates!
No don’t be afraid,
Don’t be afraid!
Don’t be afraid!
Don’t be afraid!

Sing, oh redeemed!,
and speak of the path,
and point to the gate
left open for thee,
left open for thee,
left open for thee,
left open for thee!
