LYRICS

Lyrics for the Album “Secrets.”

This album was inspired by Psalm 40:1-3 (NLT):

1 I waited patiently for the Lord to help me,
and he turned to me and heard my cry.
2
He lifted me out of the pit of despair,
out of the mud and the mire.
He set my feet on solid ground
and steadied me as I walked along.
3
He has given me a new song to sing,
a hymn of praise to our God.
Many will see what he has done and be amazed.
They will put their trust in the Lord.

Lyrics from the Title Track:  “SECRETS”

We keep no secrets from God.

Inspiration: Inspired by an old friend’s journal entry, reminding me of the countless pages I’d filled up in search of some small understanding of truth. You see before Christ, I lived for myself.  Secretly, I sinned.  Secretly, I suffered.  Jesus picked me up, and he set me on solid ground.  Hello New Me.  Goodbye and good riddance Old Self.

Verse: Psalm 40:1-3 NLT

“I waited patiently for the Lord to help me, and he turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the pit of despair, out of the mud and the mire.  He set my feet on solid ground and steadied me as I walked along.  He has given me a new song to sing, a hymn of praise to our God.  Many will see what he has done and be amazed.  They will put their trust in the Lord.”

Lyrics for song “SECRETS”:

I find myself staring at walls, walls within books of my youth.
I find myself searching for the message, searching for the words of truth.
I wrote you down so many ways.  I wrote words unsaid, hopes for a better day.
I had these dreams that you would turn.  I would call your name but you could not be heard.
I had these dreams – written pages of sand.  I was dying by day all alone in my head.

But now I’m fine, and oh I’m alive!
You see my hand and my heart had been scheming to show me the death that I’d been conceiving
I gave into the art of believing and I sent all my secrets away now with you.
My past is gone.  I left the eye of the storm.
I left you all the pain when I crawled through that broken door.
I had these dreams – written pages of sand.  I was dying by day all alone in my head.

But now I’m fine, and oh I’m alive!
You see my hand and my heart had been scheming to show me the death that I’d been conceiving.
I gave into the art of believing and I sent all my secrets away now with you.
My hand and my heart had been scheming, showed me all I’d lost to dreaming.
Now it’s all so clear that I was called here.  I gave into the art of believing.
And I sent all my secrets away now, gave the power to someone more profound,
Found the words to admit that I’ve been found, and I forgot all my secrets I made now with you.
