Track Name: The Mountain
Let us go to the mountain
Let us climb with haste
Let us hear from the God of heaven
Let us go to the mountain

Let us go to the mountain
Let us leave behind
Our fears and aspiration
Let us go to the mountain

Let us rise in the morning
While yet there is no light
Draw near while the stars are fading
Let us see you in the sunrise


I will go to the mountain
I will meet you there
You're whispering sweet communion
I will go to the mountain
I will go to the mountain
I will go to the mountain
Track Name: Matador
I come against the world
I am conclusion
I am the cornerstone
I am the music

I am the striking night
That shows the world bending
And I have every right
To bring in the ending

Something inside me is leveled
Something can't hold
Buildings have grown sown together with what now unfolds
Something inside me is leveled
Something can't hold
Someone has seeded the meadow, is letting it grow

Here in the brightest
I am the matador
Bring in the dancing animals
Cause I am the storm

Something inside me is leveled
Something can't hold
Buildings have grown sown together with what now unfolds
Something inside me is leveled
Something can't hold
Someone has seeded the meadow, is letting it grow

Here in the brightest
I am the matador
Here in the brightest
I am the matador
Track Name: Enough, Enough
Lord of all light
I'm coming home, coming home
You will not deny
A broken heart, a broken soul
Reunion is my cry
Servanthood my goal
But you run to me and
Kiss my head, give me clothes

Fear the falling I will give you rest
Hear me calling I do bid you home
The joy of redemption
I have long kept in
Watching for you all along
My arms have not wavered
Here at the front gate
Son I love you on and on, and on

Lord of all love
I've given up, given up
The things that I've loved
They're maybe less loving because
They've taken the light
Right out of my eyes
My mind is spinning the mud

Lord of all love
Is that enough? Is that enough?
Lord of all love
Is that enough? Is that enough?
Lord of all love
Is that enough? Is that enough?
Lord of all love
I've had enough, I've had enough

Fear the falling I will give you rest
Hear me calling I do bid you home
The joy of redemption
I have long kept in
Watching for you all along
My arms have not wavered
Here at the front gate
Son I love you on and on, and on
Track Name: Be Honest
My feet didn't touch the ground
Waking to rain
And it's dark out
Love, do you hear the sound?
Cracking the air
All wiry and fair
And strung out?

Be honest, be honest with me
Be honest, be honest with me
Just be honest, be honest with me
Oh just be honest, be honest with me

It's all the same thing we have left
Light in the morning
No cover could ever be safe
Heaven is coming to be
The blur of the earth
Will again be seen
Clearly

Be honest, be honest with me
Be honest, be honest with me
Be honest, be honest with me
Just be honest, be honest with me
Be honest, be honest with me

Be honest
Be honest
Track Name: End Of The Night
The longer we sit here
The harder we fight
Hoping at sunrise
It'll all be alright

The wood is but ashes
Our fire's gone out
Here in the kitchen
We're whispering loud

Oh, the scent of your hair
The sweetness is there, I know
We can pull it out
Oh, the morning will come
The fever will run, and break,
And then will be done

At the end of the night
The end of the night
The end of the night
The end of the night

What is uncovered
I'm sorry it's real
I'm sorry I've been so loathe to reveal
This is not what we pictured
This is not ever after
This is the real life
This is what we signed up for

Oh, the scent of your hair
The sweetness is there, I know
We can pull it out
Oh, the morning will come
The fever will run, and break,
And then will be done

At the end of the night
The end of the night
The end of the night
The end of the night
Track Name: Every Summer
Every summer
Every summer, go down to the water
Every summer
See if we could swim a little bit farther

When my memory is fading, when my eyes are growing dim
When my heart is full and feeling that I'm ready to go in
When my memory is fading, when my hands are cracked and thin
Reunion is approaching, I'll again in summer sing

Every summer
Every summer, go down to the water
Every summer
Every summer, go down to the water

I've seen you grow
And I've seen you go
Every summer
Every summer

Every summer
Every summer, go down to the water
Every summer
See if we could swim a little bit farther

Every summer
Every summer, go down to the water
Every summer
Every summer, go down to the water

Every summer
Track Name: When I Have No Friends
Lord I trust you, Lord I trust you in my loneliness
Lord I trust you, Lord I trust you when I have no friends
Lord I trust you, Lord I trust you when the rent is due
Lord I trust you, Lord I trust you when I don't know what to do
Lord I trust you, Lord I trust you when the money's gone
Lord I trust you, Lord I trust you when I'm called to carry on

Sometimes I just need to be reminded
Jesus died, and I am yours

Lord I trust you with a place to live
Lord I trust you, Lord I trust that what I need you'll give
Lord I trust you, Lord I trust you and I don't know how
Lord I trust you, cause you are faithful when I go without
Lord I trust you, Lord I trust you with a place to live
Lord I trust you, cause you are good and you have always been
Yes you've always been

Sometimes I just need to be reminded
Jesus died, and I am yours

Lord I trust you, Lord I trust you in my loneliness
Lord I trust you, Lord I trust you when I have no friends
Track Name: Stones
Hold fast, I am with you
Though the parking lot lights
May haunt you
May seep through
The windows in the van where you slept
Stacking stones of my faithfulness

Hold fast

Hold fast, I go before you
The nights in fall
You couldn't be alone
I was there, I promise
I never left
Stacking stones of my faithfulness

Hold fast

Hold fast
I am on your side
I know where you hide
Hold fast
I'll give all you need
In perfect timing

So I'll hold fast
You won't die or leave
You won't abandon me
Track Name: A Darker Color
A darker color is what I see
The clouds are heavy with adversity
Please hold tightly for we might slip
To the hand that understands it

O my soul
Why are you downcast?
Praise the Lord
And find rest

In the first
In the only
Through the worst
Through the only

A darker color is what I hear
The thunder's calling us to draw near
To each other and the one who
Promises providence and reason too

O my soul
Why are you downcast?
Praise the Lord
And find rest

In the first
In the only
Through the worst
In the only

Bless the Lord my soul
All that is within me
Bless His Holy Name
Track Name: The Heart Is A Well
The heart is a well
Springing up from the ground
The deeper you dig
The more real what you've found
Sweet in its time
Like the falling rain
My heart is a well
Where you draw out the pain

Your love is like wine
The taste on my lips
The closer I get
The more I want it
I'm transient and
In need of repair
I'm starting to feel
Starting to know that you care

The day that we meet
There'll be no more tears
You'll say welcome home
I've missed you, my dear
The baggage we've brought
You said it before
You'll count it as lost
Remember no more

You'll count is as lost
Remember no more
The day that we meet
I'll remember no more
