The Path

The Ascent (Day 5279)

How can we march ahead

With our frostbitten lungs in the cold wind

No time, no quiet, no rest

And I can’t see the end

Postage

So many days since the grass turned brown

Well it’s dead now

I used to wait at the door somehow

But you moved out

 

Postage is a twenty dollar bill

To send the letters I’m holding onto still

Across the ocean and above the hills to get to you

 

If I pretend you’re here, would it hold me?

If I pretend you’re home, would I still be lonely?

This empty house feels strange, like it’s not mine

 

Staring at the calendar and counting time

Till you come back

Several months since anyone has seen a smile

That’s not an act

 

Postage is a twenty dollar bill

To send the letters I haven’t written still

Across the ocean and above the hills to get to you

 

If I pretend you’re here, would it hold me?

If I pretend you’re home, would I still be lonely?

This empty house feels strange, like it’s not mine

 

I don’t need you here

Maybe this is good for me

I don’t need you home

I’m probably meant to be alone

This empty shell feels scraped from the inside

 

I’ll be fine

Yes, I’ll be fine

I said I’ll be fine

I said I’m fine

 

I have come to the conclusion    

In isolation there’s a lesson

This sense of empty is illusion

To feel alone is to forget Him

 

Don’t fear the path though it’s cracked and secluded

I know you feel lost and unattached but it gets better in time

Idle

Sunset hits the water

Normal day like any other

Circle round, repeat, the same

In a world abundant

Feels like I have nothing to say

 

Idle as I’ve ever been

Hoping that my past successes

Will carry me through the day

Pressure drives the motivated

But, as for me, I tend to hate it

Pressure drives my will to fray

 

Even if we know that we chose the right path,

Faith against time is a drag to grind through

Even if we’re honest, we won’t let it rest

We learn in time to open our hands

And when the volume lights sit idle

Start it up again

 

Withered in the bitter winds’ whip

Ever-thinning my resistance

I’m ready, let me go to rest

I’ve blocked out all the world

In my need to be secluded

A need to find my roots again

 

Write me a list of reasons

Why I should keep from leaving

I need to see it on the page

‘Cause failure forgets the efforts made

The energy, the hours paid

Are we gonna let it go to waste?

 

Even if we know that we chose the right path,

Faith against time is a drag to grind through

Even if we’re honest, we won’t let it rest

We learn in time to open our hands

And when the volume lights sit idle

Start it up again

 

Even if we know that we chose the right path

Faith against time is a drag to grind through

Even if we’re honest, we won’t let it rest

We learn in time to open our hands

And when the volume lights sit idle

Start it up again

When the volume lights sit idle

Start it up again

Take a deep breath and start it up again

Enough

Heat under pressure bound to blow

Reared up, intent to go

Caught me off guard, it built up slow

Till screens couldn’t hide the smoke

 

You see, I’m made of rock

With a touch of hot lava

And if I erupt at the wrong time

We all go up

 

So what if I can’t — I can’t help it?

Can you see?

It’s obvious that I can’t help it

 

Ticking atomic clock inside

Fine-tuned and wound uptight

Years spent between the click and chime

Gears clocking overtime

I’ve had enough

 

So what if I can’t — I can’t help it?

Can you see?

It’s obvious that I can’t help it

 

My head spills out of my mouth sometimes

When the progress meets the brakes

Please be patient, I’m invested in the bottom line

But it’s getting hard to wait

 

So what if I can’t — I can’t help it?

Can you see?

It’s obvious that I can’t hold it in

Django Fett

As they dish, they say we’re different

I’m all for it, I want to be remembered

Duplicate, repeat the same thing

It’s so boring playing in a box

Picky, picky, can’t quite pin it

I’ll admit it’s happening again

Losing touch with tired traditions

Set a new beat, make you feel it

 

Shivers of a rhythm creeping up your spine

Don’t be shy, we won’t bite

Let the music take you to the place you like

Clap your fives in time

Write, review, and change our minds

A hundred times to get it right

Learn to love when you don’t hear the same thing twice

Diverse by design

 

Got the riff raff, got the good kids

Got the ones who never quite fit in

No news to you, it’s what you’re used to

Changing tunes to reach the masses

Now we’re all in, party’s happening

Stage is set, the crowd is settling

When the lights hit, raise your voices

Raise the roof, raise up your hands

 

It’s shivers of a rhythm creeping up your spine

Don’t be shy, we won’t bite

Let the music take you to the place you like

Clap your fives in time

Write, review, and change our minds

A hundred times to get it right

Learn to love when you don’t hear the same thing twice

Diverse by design

 

Are you alive or dead?

Lose your mind, don’t lose your head

Alive or dead

 

Are you alive or dead?

Lose your mind, don’t lose your head

Alive or dead

 

Shivers of a rhythm creeping up your spine

Don’t be shy, we won’t bite

Let the music take you to the place you like

Clap your fives in time

Write, review, and change our minds

A hundred times to get it right

Learn to love when you don’t hear the same thing twice

Diverse by design

 

Oh, Shivers of a rhythm creeping up your spine

Don’t be shy, we won’t bite

Let the music take you to the place you like

Clap your fives in time

Write, review, and change our minds

A hundred times to get it right

Change up our routine and don’t apologize

Diverse by design

The Path

Years up in the mountains

Face into the headwinds

I thought we’d reached the peak

And then a thousand miles ahead

A thousand more again

Worn down and out of it

I can’t see the end

Can’t find where we began

 

The air is thin

We’re pressed to forfeit

But take the next step

          

Deep breath; we march ahead

Hands up to the One who leads us in

Hold tight, it’s not the end

And this is worth the risk

 

Heads up, hear the war cry

Sword drawn in a gunfight

The battle lines close in on every side

Our bodies stiff and tired

We just climbed a thousand miles

But we were born to fight

As long as we’re alive

 

The war begins

Farewell, I’m off again

It’s time to fall in

 

Deep breath; we march ahead

Hands up to the One who leads us in

Hold tight, it’s not the end

And this is worth the risk

 

Dim the lights

Bring in the fight

Let trials arise

We’ll be fine

 

Mend the apathy

Revive the fight in me

Light up the life in me

I could go on forever

 

Deep breath; we march ahead

Hands up to the One who leads us in

Hold tight, it’s not the end

And this is worth the risk

The Highest Praise

Highest

Nothing can stop Your heart from choosing me

No one can take the grace You’ve given free

Jesus, Your joy, Your light is changing me

No one can turn the page You’re writing

 

Above all I can think all I imagine

No one can close a door that You have opened

I trust in The One who shaped the world and let it breathe

I trust in The One who knows the plan He has for me

 

Who set the depth the limits of the sea

Who’s breath who’s voice who’s life made everything

All that we have in us is Yours to keep

No one can turn the page You’re writing.

Above all I can think all I imagine

No one can close a door that You have opened

I trust in The One who shaped the world and let it breathe

I trust in The One who knows the plan He has for me

 

God in the highest place, Give Him the highest praise

Above all I can think all I imagine

No one can close a door that You have opened

I trust in The One who shaped the world and let it breathe

I trust in The One who knows the plan He has for me

Drought

Your face reflected by the moonlight

Illuminates to guide me through the dark

You mend my soul and lead me to Your safety

I’m in Your hands; I’m on my knees, so take me

 

I hold onto faith; seeing’s not believing

And call on Your name, Your arms are my refuge

So bear me a little closer; God, my strength is fading

But I’m still in your hands, I’m on my knees; I’m praying

 

I’m laying myself down; I am Yours

When I’m damaged from the drought, I am Yours

 

When life fills with loss, I know I must exchange  it

My life for the cross, my eyes locked onto You

But it’s so hard to stand on faith when I am shaking

I bow to Your plans, I’m on my knees, God, take me

I’m laying myself down; I am Yours

When I’m damaged from the drought, I am Yours

When the words aren’t on my mouth, I am Yours

When my heart is inside out, I am Yours

 

Through it all, You’re the stronghold I’m bound to

You’re singing over me, “I will always surround you”

I’m laying myself down; I am Yours

When I’m damaged from the drought, I am Yours

When the words aren’t on my mouth, I am Yours

When my heart is inside out, I am Yours

Blaze

Bound to the grave but now I'm free

You rescued me You broke the bonds  Of slavery

This liberty Has freed my feet 

 

Who is worthy? Who is like Him?

None among all of the nations

We’re enraptured, filled with excitement

You inspire our feet to dance

You inspire our feet to dance

 

Build up the blaze in my spirit

I wanna dance, dance for you

Lift up the praise, let Him hear it 

We’re gonna dance, dance for you

 

Joy fills the air erasing fear

Lord, we’re free from the mountains  To the sea

And all between Your name’s resounding

Who is worthy? Who is like Him?

None among all of the nations

We’re enraptured, filled with excitement

You inspire our feet to dance

You inspire our feet to dance

 

Build up the blaze in my spirit

I wanna dance, dance for you

Lift up the praise, let Him hear it 

We’re gonna dance, dance for you

 

We’re gonna dance, dance, hey, to the fire within

We’re gonna dance, dance, hey, gonna dance to the fire

Who is worthy? Who is like Him?

None among all of the nations

We’re enraptured, filled with excitement

You inspire our feet to dance

You inspire our feet to dance

Plan

Beginning all with just a word


You built a world of truth and life


Though serpent came to steal and kill


In vain attempt to quench Your light

 

Your people you have sworn to save


To lead them out of desert land


When enemies like oceans rage


Deliverance is close at hand

Oh, hallelujah

The Earth’s in Your hands

No plot, nor scheme can

Overcome Your perfect plan

 

Through Moses You had freed the slaves


And through Elisha showed Your power


Through Solomon brought glory days


Though none of these could match the hour

 

When hung upon that cursed tree


Our Savior took the sin of man


And death itself to pasture. He


Fulfilled the Father’s promised plan

 

Oh, hallelujah

The Earth’s in Your hands

No plot, nor scheme can

Overcome Your perfect plan

 

On that grand, majestic day

Christ will return with many crowns

The scars of love upon His face

As justice reigns and trumpets sound

And everyone will know Your name

Your faultless love will mend the flawed

And there’ll be nothing left to say

But “Holy is The Living God”

Oh, hallelujah

The Earth’s in Your hands

No plot, nor scheme can

Overcome Your perfect plan

Rest

Lord, we are comforted

Oh Lord, we are comforted

When our days are long and walk is hard, You are the rest we truly seek

Oh Lord, We are comforted

 

Can I live here,

At rest in Your sweet embrace,

In the arms of The Father’s Grace?

 

Lord, You are ultimate

Oh Lord, You are ultimate

When our enemies advance around, You bring us to a lofty place

Oh Lord, You are ultimate

Can I live here,

At rest in Your sweet embrace,

In the arms of The Father’s Grace?

 

You are the one I love

And it does not get better

No, not much better than this

In the rampart of Your feathers

You are with me through it all

And when I call on Your Name

You lift me up above

And bring me to Your shelter

No terror in the night

Nor arrow in the daylight

Could wrench me from Your grip,

Unshakable Protector

Can I live here,

At rest in Your sweet embrace,

In the arms of The Father’s Grace?

Lord, You are ultimate

Oh Lord, You are ultimate

Lord, You are infinite

Oh Lord, You are infinite

Promise

I feel You wrap around

Always embracing me

I hear the sound of all the hallelujahs

From angel choirs

Come down to earth to sing

All my life, I want to worship

 

Everything inside me is shaken up

You look into my eyes

And all the words I once thought 

Could describe You are

Not enough to paint the picture

 

(All my life) Your name is on my lips

(All my life) If I have one promise

(All my life) Your name is on my lips

(All my life) I will promise this

 

Everything inside me is shaken up

You look into my eyes

And all the words I once thought

Could describe You are

Not enough to paint the picture

 

Artist of the sky, with those same fingertips

You weaved my life

So every cell that I have will glorify forever

The One who spoke the stars to light

(All my life) Your name is on my lips

(All my life) If I have one promise

(All my life) Your name is on my lips

(All my life) I will promise this

    

Singing, singing

Every word with all my heart

I’m mystified, amazed

When I think about who You are

(All my life) Your name is on my lips

(All my life) If I have one promise

(All my life) Your name is on my lips

(All my life) I will promise this

Throne

Only by Your word

The rains fall upon the Earth

And by Your command 

The Sun will rise

Only with one thought

You made beauty from the dirt

Only with one breath, created life

 

At the throne of God

All will bow

Amazed by Your awesome glory

Shining all around

Mercy reigns and love abounds

By Your blood we're saved

In Your name we are found

At the throne of God

 

Steadfast Your hand, Lord

Your promises endure

To the very heart of God

We are bound

Let the Sun burn away

Nothing, Lord, can separate us now

At the throne of God

All will bow

Shining all around

Mercy reigns and love abounds

By Your blood we're saved

We are amazed by what You've done

We are amazed by what You've done

King of Nations

We are amazed by what You've done

Surrounded by Your love, I know

You never look at me as hopeless

I'm caught up in Your overflow  

Surrounded by Your love, I know

I'm caught up in Your overflow

 

Every blessing, every moment

All our days our God is with us

Every blessing, every moment

All our days Your love will overflow

Thank You for Your mercy

Thank You for the love that You have for me

A heart that seeks You only

For You alone are God and You are holy

Let the Glory of God be all I can see

Fill every thought, every wish, every dream

So I may know my Lord, so I may know You more

And for Your many blessings

You hold us in our waking and our resting

For providence we pray

Protect us in our weakness

That we may ever praise the name of Jesus

Let the train of Your robe fill the temple of me

Let the Glory of God be all I can see

Fill every thought, every wish, every dream

So I may know my Lord, so I may know You more

 

Hallowed be Thy Name

Let Your kingdom come, let Your Will be done

Help us to forgive

As You have forgiven all we’ve done

Deliver us from death

Away from temptation, lead us to our Lord

For Thine is the kingdom, the glory, the power forevermore

Let the Glory of God be all I can see

Fill every thought, every wish, every dream

So I may know my Lord, so I may know You more
