Outpouring

Vs1: There’s an outpouring of your spirit

out of our hearts, out of our homes

An outpouring of your spirit –

into the streets, into the public places

 

Vs2: There’s an outpouring of your spirit

out of the church, out of our songs

An outpouring of your spirit –

into our work, & into the lowly places

 

Pre-Chorus:

So I will go go go into my world world world

and I will love love love every boy and girl

Yeah, I will go go go into my world world world

and I will pray for freedom every day

Chorus: 

Freedom – freedom be released

From your Kingdom

 Kingdom be released!

Bridge: 

Give me a mind not divided, not distracted

But the mind of Christ

Give me a mind set upon you, set upon truth

The mind of Christ

Chorus x2

Redefine Love

Vs.1

There’s no way that you could understand

The shiver and nausea from his hand

As it creeps beyond my boundary, I wonder “why…

Of all the other children, was it I?”

.

This must be what love is

The pain is real; Each day I kneel

I must be of value

At least my skin; A feast of sin

.

Pre-Chorus:

This must be what love is

If this is what love is…

Chorus:

Redefine Love!

Start over fresh, Start over fresh

Redefine Love!

Start over fresh, Start over fresh

Vs.2

“If I didn’t care”, he says, “would I

Waste my energy to black your eye?”

“Fear”, he says, “will make you humble” so

I take one more beating, one more blow

.

This must be what love is

My basic needs are met with deeds

I must be of value

If I invoke a twisted choke

 

Pre-Chorus

Chorus

 

Vs.3

Something tells me God could understand

If pure love and strength flowed from His hand

Blood and water poured out of His side

Hope was born in laying down his life

.

This must be what love is

To sing, to heal; To pray, to feel

I must be of value

My heart, my soul; The part, the whole

.

This must be what love is

This must be what love is

.

(You can…) Redefine Love!

Start over fresh, w/gentleness

(You can…) Redefine Love!

Let’s start over fresh

Start over fresh

.

Redefine Love, God, redefine love.

Strength – a poem for Carly

She dug further down in the deep of her heart
And the further she went, the more pain would impart
Past the rejection, past all the lies
For their protection, she casts off disguise

She sees it all
But is blind to her own strength
She sees it all…but her strength

      Upholding them
      Supporting them

      With the strength
      She has from above

In the very last days he spent on this earth
She would fight for the rights of the two she gave birth
Walking the tightrope, shaking with fear
Helping them say all he needed to hear

She sees it all
But is blind to her own strength
She sees it all… but her strength

      Upholding them
      Supporting them

      With the strength
      She has from above

The strength she has from above
From above
She fights with the strength
From above

With the strength from above

Death Be Not Proud – a poem about Nathan’s Win

Death be not proud

That you’ve gained one more soul

It was not a win for you

Swallowing whole

His breath and energy

Cancer and pain

You may count it as yours

But this loss is yet gain

 

Friends and dear family

Daughter and son

Draw near to heaven

Where life’s now begun

His grace is a blanket

His comfort a salve

His presence with Nathan

Is here with you now

 

Death be not proud

For this world is not home

For this earth which we roam

Will assault heart and bone

Rather, home is our city

In heaven and light

So I raise my proud fist

For one hell of a fight
