19 Mar 1977

my heart is lyin' in pieces
all over the world
I can't pass a sign on the road
without thinking of something I once heard
"Don't spread yourself too thin in life,
or you'll wind up all alone"
I don't know what you think
but it's true for all I know

every sign on the road reminds me
of faces in my mind
I miss so much the loving touch
of people I've left behind
if I had my way I'd follow
every sign I see
but as it is, I'm thankful
for precious memories

I've seen some beautiful places
all over this land
but you know...

3 Jan 1978

I've been looking for a person
I can always turn to when I'm down
looking for someone who doesn't care
that I'm a clown
looking for a special friend—
like the one that I just found

I've been searching for Jesus for so long
it don't seem real
I've been searching in places that I
never could reveal
all I found was heartaches
looking everywhere for love
but when I finally found the Lord
then I finally found love

now I've stopped my running
I don't have to look for happiness no...

22 Oct 1975

life holds no fear
when in death there is victory
there's no need to shed a fear
when I think what Jesus did for me
before Pilate's mockery
He could see what the end would be
and now I know what He must have said
as He gave His life on Calvary

"for you to live, I must die
for you to win, I must try
for you to hope, I must give myself
to die upon a tree
for you to see, I must go blind
for you to have, I must find
for you to know, I must pass the test
and claim the victory
I'll claim the victory"...

7 Oct 1976

all my life I've lived alone
they just can't seem to remember my name
I'd live and die—and still I'd be unknown
guess there's really no one else to blame

but then You came into my world
You gave me love I'd never known
You sang me songs I'd never heard
and then You touched me
and made me Your own

Hallelujah, Jesus loves me
Hallelujah, Jesus cares
Hallelujah, Jesus loves me
Hallelujah, praise His name

now I need no place to hide
I know I've found just what I'm looking for
and now I know I've got love on my side
how could...

6 Feb 1975

here I am
crying again
my heart is breaking in two
here I stand
my love in my hand
I'm ready to give it to you

somehow I'm always expecting too much
and right now I long for your healing touch

here am I
just one lonely guy
that don't wanna hear no more lies
here I am
and here I will stay
please teach me to rest in your ways

(repeat chorus)

here I stand
my love in my hand
I'm ready to give it to you

just let me be what you want me to be
and from all of myself, Lord, please set me free

here I am...

Lyrics & notes

29 Jan 1976

it's so easy to hide the ugliness inside
beneath the clothes we wear, beneath the things we do
I was always afraid I wouldn't make the grade
so I learned to do the things I was expected to
I never knew

when I was young I used to play hide and seek
and I grew up hiding from everyone I'd meet
like a child, I long for someone to find me
searching in the streets
then Jesus came and found me
He threw His arms around me
now I don't have to hide anymore

it's so easy to make the commonplace mistake
of seeing who we are as who we'd like to be

12 Jan 1978

I've always wanted a house on the ocean
all made of glass, perched high on a hill
then every morning I'd wake with the sunrise
and every night rock to sleep with the waves
all down the stairway that leads to the water
flowers are dancing in time with the breeze

but I'd be content with a room in the city
if you'll just live with me
we could grow flowers in pots by the window
you could whisper the breeze in my ear

I've always wanted to be a composer
I'd write refrains in my house by the sea
I'd fill all the country with music and dancing

Lyrics

Lyrics by Hannah Hurnard,
based on The Song of Solomon

how lovely, how nimble, are thy feet
O prince's daughter
they sparkle and flash and can run more fleet
than running water
on all the mountains there is no gazelle
no roe or hind
can o'ertake thee nor leap as well
but lag behind

thy joints and thighs are a supple band
on which are met
fair jewels a cunning master hand
hath fitly set
in all the palace, search where'er...

Lyrics

Lyrics by Hannah Hurnard,
based on The Song of Solomon

I am the Rose of Sharon
a wild anemone
as lily 'mong the thorn trees
so is my love to me

an apple tree 'mong wild trees
my love is in my sight
I sit down in his shadow
his fruit is my delight

he brought me to his palace
and to the banquet hall
to share with me his greatness
I who am least of all

oh, give me help and comfort
for I am sick with shame

19 Jul 1974

don't make me talk about weather
please don't make me talk about trends
and don't ask my opinion of the latest style
can't we talk about something
that's never gonna end?

I just wanna talk about Jesus
I just wanna talk about His love
how it frees us
I just wanna talk about Jesus
and I just wanna talk about His love
He's the one we should all be talking of

don't make me think about fortune
don't make me think about fame
don't make me think about the friends that fail me
I'd rather think of someone who'll always stay the same

I just...
