Track Name: Like a Tree
Refrain:
Like a tree by the flowing water,
growing deeper, stretching high
Like a tree by the flowing water,
connected to the source of life

Verse 1
Blessed, blessed are we to abide in God’s Word,
Nourished through every season; blessed are we.

Verse 2
Planted, planted by grace, we are rooted in God’s design
Freely, freely abiding, planted by grace

Verse 3
Trusting, trusting our lives to the holy way of God,
We will, we will surrender, trusting our lives.
Track Name: Going Out and Coming In
Going out and coming in the Holy One keeps us
Going out and coming in the Holy One sings
Track Name: This Love is Forever
Celebrate the One to whom we all belong,
the One Who does great marvels everyday 
Celebrate the memories of faithful help
that make the future full of hope and faith This love

This love is forever, this love
This love is forever, this love
This love is forever, this love 

Celebrate the one creative source of life
who paints and sings and dances with us all
Celebrate the universal artist's work-
the sky, the earth, the sun, the moon & stars This love

Celebrate the One who claimed a land for us,
who led us to a place to call our own
Celebrate provision for our every need,
who always welcomes each of us back home This love

Celebrate the One who rescued Israel
who long ago led people through the sea
Celebrate the journey of deliverance
through wilderness and danger to be free This love
Track Name: A Life of Trust
Deep down in a hole
like where Joseph was thrown by his brothers,
left alone to die
I waited and cried
’til I heard a new song rise,
’til I heard a new song rise 

A life of trust, a life of trust 
When we are afraid or weak
a life of trust is deepening
A life of trust

Neck deep in the mud,
I remembered my friend Jeremiah 
left to ache and starve
I waited and cried 
’til I felt my body rise, ’til I felt my body rise
Track Name: The Holy Way
The Holy Way is reviving our souls
This path is making us wise
The Holy Way is rejoicing our hearts
Such sweet light for our eyes

Let us write it on our hearts 
Let us write it on our hearts 
Let us write it on our hearts
where we live always
Track Name: Stronghold
Stronghold, joy of the earth
Stronghold, joy of the earth

Keeping nothing out,
strong enough holding everything in
Keeping nothing out,
strong enough holding everything in
oh, everything in

Feel the eastern wind,
see our ancestors crossing the sea
Feel the eastern wind,
see our ancestors crossing the sea
oh, crossing the sea

Keeper of the world,
fortress and lighthouse, covenant love
Keeper of the world,
fortress and lighthouse, covenant love
oh, covenant love
Track Name: When We Are Afraid
When we are afraid, we pour our trust into you
When we are afraid, we pour our trust into you
We are changing as we trust you,
stretching into something new
When we are afraid, we pour our trust into you

The wanderer's tears you're holding close to your heart
The wanderer's tears you're holding close to your heart
We are changing as we trust you,
stretching into something new
The wanderer's tears you're holding close to your heart

We sing with the world and feel the pulse of the Christ
We sing with the world and feel the pulse of the Christ
We are changing as we trust you,
stretching into something new
We sing with the world and feel the pulse of the Christ
Track Name: The River of God
Overwhelmed with the weight of what we had done
The river of God is flowing full
Mercy washed over us like a wild flood
The river of God is flowing full
Water for the fields from forgiving rain
The river of God is flowing full
And the sun shining down, everything ripening
The river of God is flowing full

The River of God

Oh, music in the air moving through the day
The river of God is flowing full
Joy singing in the morning 'til evening fades
The river of God is flowing full
Running wide and open, fresh and old
The river of God is flowing full
Water dark with wonder, deep and slow
The river of God is flowing full
Track Name: Where Can I Go
Where can I go from your presence
     or hide from your love? 
Where can I go from your presence
     or hide from your love? 

You have searched me and you know me,
when I rest and rise. 
You can trace my every journey.
You know all my ways, 
You know all my ways. 

Now before I left my mother,
nurtured in her womb
There you knit my life together
full and wonderful,
full and wonderful. 

All my days are in your keeping.
Search my heart, O God. 
May your Holy Spirit fill me. 
I will bear your heart, 
I will bear your heart  
Track Name: Desert Blues
In the desert I am waiting, I am waiting for you
     for the water of a word with you
In the desert I am waiting, I am waiting for you 
     and the sky is crystal clear
You're gone 

At your mercy out here in the heat
Feel the empty and everybody here knows what I mean

In the desert I've been searching, I've been searching for you 
     Are you M.I.A. or are you late? 
In the desert I've been searching, I’ve been searching for you 
     and my lungs are burning up
You're gone

At your mercy out here in the heat
Feel the empty and everybody here knows what I mean

In the desert I am dreaming, I am dreaming of you
     and the possibilities from here
In the desert I am dreaming, I am dreaming of you
     It's a season for the desert blues
Track Name: All of My Days
Into green pastures, beside the still waters
Along the good paths and through the dark valleys

All of my days God's mercy follows
All of my days God’s love surrounds 
All of my days, all of my days

Among my enemies, you call me to table
Your deepest blessing my cup overflows 

Always in God’s heart, I shall be forever
Always in God’s heart, I shall be forever
Track Name: Take Cover In Love
Take cover
Take cover in love
Take cover
Take cover in love

You live in a safe house
You live under a shield of mighty wings 
Because you're in deep love,
you live into a life that's all about trusting

God's way is a fortress
like the country you love and call your home 
God's way is a journey
like the hope of the morning leading us on

My people will trust me
like a place that you hide when you are scared 
My people live in me
You will carry your faith wherever you dare
Track Name: I Lay Open
I lay open my whole life to you,
trusting you, o Holy One.
Track Name: Hear Me and Show Me Your Love
I have kept to your paths, the way of life,
Kept to your paths all along.
Hear me and show me your love.
Hear me and show me your love.

I am longing for you to show your face.
Oh the road, it's been rough. 
Hear me and show me your love.
Hear me and show me your love.

In the morning I will wake with tired eyes,
and as for me
beholding your face is more than enough. 
Hear me and show me your love.
Hear me and show me your love.

You can visit by night and test my heart.
Come now & see what I'm made of.
Hear me and show me your love.
Hear me and show me your love. 

When in danger, guard my life beneath your wings
and hear my voice. 
I am a flower just longing to bud. 
Hear me and show me your love.
Hear me and show me your love.
Track Name: Holy One, Who
In my bones I know
you're calling me to compassion
more than before.
In my blood I feel
you leading me into action
more than before

Holy One, who is helping the poor?
Holy One, who? Who is like you?
Holy One, who is ready to go?
Holy One, who? Who is like you?

In my bones I know
you're counting me in your vision
more than before
In my blood I feel
you're giving me strength to listen
more than before

In my bones I know
you're knitting me into Jesus
more than before
In my blood I feel
you're easing all of my reasons
more than before.
Track Name: It's A New Day
The whole planet prospers in your care,
     thriving within your design
Your own trees, your rivers and your birds--
     everything is satisfied

Breathe into the earth, Holy One, and renew us.
It’s a new day
Breathe into the earth, Holy One, and renew us. 
It’s a new day

All of life in rhythm with your breath—
     everything is in its place
All our days, our nights, our seasons turn—
    life and death and holy change

We will sing for you for all our lives,
     sing as long as we have breath
We will sing for you for all our lives,
     sing as long as we have breath
Track Name: La Noche
Where can I go to flee your love?
Where could I run to hide away?
The highest heaven? You are there.
The deepest depth? You’re there the same. 

La noche resplandece como͜ el dia para Ti
La noche resplandece como͜ el dia para Ti

If I could fly on wings at dawn
to find the far side of the sea, 
still there your hand would lead me on.
Still there your love would hold me safe.

If I should try to hide at night 
when darkness covers all my way, 
you laugh for all's the same to you:
The night shines just as bright as day

My ways, O God, you've always known.
You knit me in my mother's womb. 
I praise you for your wondrous work
and all the days you've seen me through.

How precious are your thoughts, O God,
Your knowledge of us night and day. 
To list them all, I'd fall asleep,
and in the morn with you I'd wake.
