about

This is not only my first album, but also my first self recorded album of songs written over the past three years since my Christian walk began. It's a bit rough around the edges, but it has a homemade quality to it. The purpose of this album is not only to bless you, but more importantly encourage you to walk closer with The Lord as well as fulfill The Great Commission. Any and all support is much appreciated. Thank you again, and my God bless you!

There are so many to thank and I probably will miss someone. But you know who you are. So here we go!

First and most importantly, I thank and praise The Lord for all of this. From my salvation to this album, nothing I have could have been accomplished with You. To my wonderful, supportive family, allowing and encourage me to pursue this. To the Joe, Steve, and Ein. Had you all not encouraged me to sing all those years ago in Ein's car, I'd probably wouldn't be doing this. You guys are the greatest friends I have ever had. Many blessings to you. Amanda and Ron, thank you both so much for your awesome support. To Pastor Steve and my brothers and sister over at church, thank you for showing me what a church family is all about and bringing me up in The Word. To Bob and all the folks at the CLPRM. You guys gave me my first show and the doors opened wide ever since. Thank you all and I'll always be there for your ministry. To all the people the people I have met through different Coffee Houses I have played at, your kind words and encouragement have blessed me so much. Thank you Courtney for teaching me how to sing properly! And thank you, from the bottom of my heart, anyone and everyone who took the time to listen or buy this album. The fact that you took the time blows me away and I am so grateful. Anyone else who has supported or helped me along the way, thank you. You know who you are. I love each and everyone of you. Lord, thank You for this, and all the people I have mentioned. You put this all together. I can't deny that. Please use this to bless anyone! Thank you all and my God bless you all!

Until next time...

Track Name: Righteous Voice
Under Your Son
I was tempered by the weight of Your warmth
Oceans of love
Drown me and I have never felt so sure
That You are Lord
And You are good Father

And with Your righteous voice
You shaped my heart
And filled my empty soul
And now all I know
Is Jesus Christ
And I wont let Him go

You are the rock
I place my feet upon and never dare to move
Amazing grace
I'll paint the world with Your melodious chord
And You are good Father

And with Your righteous voice
You shaped my heart
And filled my empty soul
And now all I know
Is Jesus Christ
And I wont let Him go
Track Name: Ghost of the Sea
On the water
Fear has gripped on me
I was taken
By the jagged sea
Winds were blowing
I felt the bite of teeth
I was shaken
By the ghost of the sea

Oh, how I yearned
To feel the sweet relief
The comfort
That sailors dream on their sleep
I heard a voice
From the ghost of the sea
"Take courage
It is I. Let fears be ceased."

Lord if it's You
Tell me to come Your way
On the water
Above this watery grave

I was dancing
Dancing through the breeze
I was walking
Toward the ghost of the sea

Though I'd fallen
Into the depths of the sea
Lord, You saved me
When faith filed like the breeze
The storms calmed down
And I was left in awe
Truly You are
Truly You are the Son of God
Track Name: Best Friend
Lord I feel Your warmth
Inside me
In times when I feel so blue
And I know
That You are with me
Because Your love is so true
So I can walk through anything
I can break down any wall
'Cause I have You inside me
So I sing out loud
I sing to everyone
So they can hear Your tune

'Cause You are my best friend
In times when
The world seems so cold
My Heavenly Father
My Savior
That guides me from the storms
And I wana hold You
And keep You
Inside my heart and soul
Even when I'm old
Lord, thank you
I am whole

I'm gonna walk out to these waters
And stare up at the stars
And even if I fall
Yeah, You know sometimes I do
I know You'll pick me up
And I'll be standing
Right there next to You

'Cause You are my best friend
In times when
The world seems so cold
My Heavenly Father
My Savior
That guides me from the storms
And I wana hold You
And keep You
Inside my heart and soul
Even when I'm old
Lord, thank you
I am whole
Track Name: The Word & Song
If I don't have the strength
To share Your Word and Song
Teach me what I need to know
"Cause I just wana share the love
That You showed me through Your Son
Teach me what i need to know

Help me to find the friends
Who are lost in sins and woes
Teach me where i need to go
It kill me to see them die
And to never know Your Son
Teach me what I need to know

To the heights of the hills
On the depths of the shores
I only live to carry out Your Word and Song
Keep me humble
Keep me strong
Keep me focused all day long
I only live to carry out Your Word and Song

If my brothers fall away
To the weight of the world
Teach me to help carry the load
The Son of Man took Himself
The weight of the world
Teach me to help carry the load

To the heights of the hills
On the depths of the shores
I only live to carry out Your Word and Song
Keep me humble
Keep me strong
Keep me focused all day long
I only live to carry out Your Word and Song
Track Name: Share Your Love
I was down and out
My days were gone
Awaiting for the sound to awake my dry bones
You came and put me back together now
And I am whole
All heart and soul
I was lost and own my own
'Til the day I found Your Son

All the miles to the east and west I'll share Your love
Through Your name
And everyday that I'm alive, I will lift my hands and sing
In loudest praise

In this world
My heart is built to roam
Laying down, singing a blind man's song
Until Your light showed me where to go
Down the only road that's paved in gold
I was lost and own my own
'Til the day I found Your Son

All the miles to the east and west I'll share Your love
Through Your name
And everyday that I'm alive, I will lift my hands and sing
In loudest praise

And I was lost
On my own
'Til the day I found Your Son
Lord, i was lost
On my own
'Til the day I found Your Son
I was lost and on my own
'Til the day I found Your Son

All the miles to the east and west I'll share Your love
Through Your name
And everyday that I'm alive, I will lift my hands and sing
In loudest praise

All the mile to the east and west I'll share Your love
Track Name: Whole New Birth
I just wana feel Your love in my hands
Breathe a little breath in me
Try and make me understand
There's a shore off in the distance
Where You are standing on
Where You baptized me
With Your grace and love

Took a lot of time
To realize
I was living dead inside
Suicide
Self inflicted wounds
Filled with empty lies
Falling in decline
I was dropping into flames of eternal pain
You see
My mind was playing tricks
My heart was doing flips
In these championships
Of man made myths
And I was miles away
Oh Lord, I was miles away
Built my truths
On the sand
The solid rock I could never understand
My heart as so focused
Hocus-pocus
On every little thing i could fit in my hand
See, I wanted bigger things
Filled with my lusts
Greedy, ambitious
Selfish and twisted
And I was so persistent
Couldn't resist it
Blinded by the fact that death was my assistant
I couldn't understand
Why the devil had my hand
Guiding me away so far from the Promise Land
I cried out that day
I needed a Savior to raise me from my grave
So I lifted my hands and I gave You my all
And You bathed my heart and You cleansed my soul
And You baptized me by the blood of Your Son
Lord Jesus, You're forever known
You gave me a whole new birth
Gave me reasons to walk the earth
Now I'm walking through the fires
And I'm moving through the storms
And I'll conquer everything
Through Your outstretched arms
And I'm loving everything that You are doing in my life
'Cause I finally got a reason to start living for the rhyme

I just wana feel Your love in my hands
Breathe a little breath in me
Try and make me understand
There's a shore off in the distance
Where You are standing on
Where You baptized me
With Your grace and love
Track Name: Everything
He's supreme
Everything
King of kings
Lord
You're making me into everything I could be
Everything
You gave Your life as a ransom
It's everything
The blood of Christ is everything

These veins and bones are perfectly formed
Joined together by the ligaments
The soul is born
And everything I will become
Fabricated in the womb
Given life and breath
A dream come true
Miraculous, intentional architecture
Created by the perfect Creator
A wonderful brush stroke of unlimited character
And I'm sought after
Loved forever by the Master, Jesus
The author of every chapter
Truthfully
I've been placed on this earth for His glory
To share His epic story
Of redemption and salvation
To be made holy
To one day return to Him to give praise and worship for all eternity
For He is worthy
But my sinful actions have given me a heart of darkness
And I'm lying in the street just like an empty carcass
Just waiting for the vultures to come pick my bones
And I'm moving further away from right and so much closer to wrong
These rebellious actions are mislabeled as mistakes
Wit a fist toward heaven I dig myself an early grave
Buried in my self-righteousness, guilt, and shame
His wrath is stored upon me and I'm the one to blame
I turned away from the light of Your word
Followed my own path
Left no stone unturned
It only led to empty valleys of lust and lies
Took the breath out of my heart and darkened my eyes
But thank God for Christ
Who died for this broken sinner
To give me new life
Innocent blood shed to erase this sinful stain
Lord, You showed me grace
Your law opened my eyes
And now I submit and surrender to Your design
Repent of my sins and put my faith in Christ
Give praise to the King of kings for all of my life

He's supreme
Everything
King of kings
Lord
You're making me into everything I could be
Everything
You gave Your life as a ransom
It's everything
The blood of Christ is everything
Track Name: Joyfully Sing
Lay me down and mend my soul
Holy Spirit, come and take these woes
'Cause I'm a sheep that tends to go astray
And never know what fields I van lay

Lord Jesus, how I long for You
Every miracle and work You do
My life is Yours, now do Your will
Lead me over mountains and through the hills

If You believe
That Jesus is King
Lift up your voice
And joyfully sing
Amen

Everyday I see the tress
Joyfully praising God, our King
And every creature sings Your song
I feel Your breathe flow in the wind
The shinning of Your warming sun
Reminds me of all the work You've done
How everything was made by You
Including me Lord, I know it's true

If You believe
That Jesus is King
Lift up your voice
And joyfully sing
Amen

Heavenly Father, I praise Your name
You healed my life and all my pain
Oh Lord, how I long for the day
To see Your face and joyfully sing

If You believe
That Jesus is King
Lift up your voice
And joyfully sing
Amen
Track Name: With All My Soul
Lift up your burdens
Your sins and woes
All of your trials
Your heart and your soul
The Heavenly Father has come to make us whole
Filled with the Spirit
Filled with His love
Perfect salvation through grace lone
I'll tear down the mountains to kneel at the throne

And I will love
And I will follow
The words of the Father
With all my soul

I'll walk through theses waters
Through treacherous storms
To meet my Savior
To feel all His warmth
Perfect submission
I give You my heart
You died for the sinner
You cried for our souls
You lifted our burdens
So heavy the load
Oh, what a Savior
Your love always shows

And I will love
And I will follow
The words of the Father
With all my soul

Sing with praises
Sing to The Lord
Heavenly Father, my life is restored
I thank You Jesus for all You've endured

And I will love
And I will follow
The words of the Father
With all my soul
Track Name: Call To You
There will be a day
Where The Lord will reign
On earth as is above
Children will sing
Fathers rejoice
Mothers will praise
Every tear
Will be washed away
From your face
The Bride and Groom
In eternity
Bound in grace
And I will carry through the storm to You

Until that day
The Word is ours
To speak unto men
Blessed are the feet
Who walk these broken streets
And lay down their lives
They seek the weary ones
Burdened without the Son
Stricken to their sin
Speaking to their hearts
The mighty Word of God
Redeems their weary soul
And I will carry through the storm to You

Like the ocean waves
You give and take away
By Your love
Everything in me
Stood on that sandy beach
As I fell to Your feet
Send me away
Myself to the grave
So I may do Your will
Now I see
That everything in me
Begins at the cross
And I will carry through the storm to You
I call to You
