Lyrics & notes

5 Jun 1976

if I was a bass drum, I would beat for You
and if I was a bird, You know, I'd tweet for You
if I was a lemon I'd be sweet for You
but all that I can do is love You
oh, if I was a river, I would run for You
and if I was a playground, I'd have fun for You
if I was the West, I would be won for You
but the best that I can do is love You

I only wish that I had more to give
I only wish I had more lives to live for You
but everything I've got belongs to You, Lord
so take me, I am Yours—what else can I do?

oh, if I was a cannon, I would boom for You...

18 Jan 1977

this morning when the sun rose
there was a rainbow in the clouds at the horizon
it made a circle 'round the sun
to warn the fleeing darkness
a multicolored halo
a ring to wed the weeping with the joy

and when the night had broken
the colors ran to take there proper places
the blue filled all the sky
the yellow crowned the sun
the green was told to wait another season
and whiteness fell to cover all the rest
and some fell in my eyes
and in my heart

You are the sunrise in my morning
You are the rainbow in my sky
the darkness...

ah, Falling Star,
You fill my eyes with such surprise
and the sky seems
more empty than before when You're gone

oh, how You shine!
You can break right through
this darkness of mine
oh, how You shine!
You can take away
this darkness of mine

ah, Morning Star,
You fill the night with such pure light
and You cause the morning sun
to blush for shame
when You rise

ah, Morning Star,
You fill me with such glory when You rise
Falling Star,
You fell down from the sky
to give me light

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"...

Lyrics & notes

14 Oct 1974

Jesus, I saw You today
in the mountains
You spoke to me
in fervent whispers of cool, sweet air
Your trees were standing sentinel
below the snowy heights
while You spoke to me of greatness
and love
and condescension

and I just sat in silence
when I saw what You had made
and I wondered at Your love for me
when I saw You in the mountains today

Jesus, I saw You today
by the waters
You spoke to me
in rhythmic whispers of warm, salt air
Your white seabirds were daring me
to follow toward the sun
while You spoke to...
