With Love CD Lyrics

Jump

Well I got faith
and I got hope
I got grace
in my boat

Singing at Kripalu, Septemeber 2011

I”ve got a paddle
But there’s some waves
Will I go over
Or play it safe

I’ll never know til I jump out that boat
What I’m really made of
Or who’s hand I hold
So I’m gonna jump out

I’m gonna jump out
I’m gonna jump out

And see if I can swim

Like I believe
And the seas parted
So I could breathe

I’ll swim to shore
I’ll swim to mountaintops
I’ll swim thru canyons
I’ll never stop

I’ll never know til I jump out that boat
What I’m really made of
Or who’s hand I hold

I’m gonna jump out
I’m gonna jump out
I’m gonna jump out

And see if I float

Solo

I’ll never know til I jump out that boat
What I’m really made of
Or who’s hand I hold

I’m gonna jump out
I’m gonna jump out
I’m gonna jump out

And see if I can fly

God Says

God says if you listen to me I’ll get louder
God says if you turn to me I’ll get brighter
God says if you want to know me, I’ll get closer
God says if you give me an inch, I’ll give you everything
God says if you want to be scared, I’ll give you a ledge
God says when it’s time to jump, I’ll throw you a rope
God says if you put in a brick, I’ll build you a home
God says when you feel you’re alone, well you’re never alone, you’re never alone

That’s what God says
That’s what God says
That’s what God said to me to tell you
That’s what God says

God says if you want to be strong, Surrender
God says when things fall apart, Trust
God says when you try to be tough, I’ll get softer
God says whatever you do, I’ve got you

That’s what God says
That’s what God says
That’s what God said to me to tell you
That’s what God says

And you’re where you need to be, where you need to be,
You’re where you need to be, you’re where you need to be

That’s what God says…
God says if you want to know me, look in the mirror
God says when you help someone in need, you join me
God says when I look at you, I see myself
God says come with me, I’ve got plans for you

Outrun the Rain

Running to the land of the living

Running toward these flashes of light

Running just as fast as I can

I’m gonna outrun the rain

Take me feet where you wanna go

Cos I’m a-ready for to blow

I’ve been more than I can be

To everyone surrounding me

I’m gonna blow, I’m gonna blow

I’m gonna blow, I’m gonna blow

Running to the land of the living

Running toward these flashes of light

Running just as fast as I can

I’m gonna outrun the rain

Take me feet to this new land

Where I can set in the sun and sand

Let these waves wash over me

And I will swim the salty sea

I’m gonna blow, I’m gonna blow

I’m gonna blow, I’m gonna blow

It may come pouring down on my head

Dry out my shoes and try again

Running to the land of the living

Running toward these flashes of light

Running just as fast as I can

I’m gonna outrun the rain

I’m gonna outrun the rain

I’m gonna outrun the rain

Circle of Light

I walked to the edge of the woods

And I stopped and I stared where I stood

You came and you took my hand and said

I’ll walk you to that promised land

 

A way yay hey

 

Just watch your foot as it steps onto the ground

We’ll take it so slowly, you won’t need to turn around

I’ve got experience with reluctance you see

Cos just last week that was me

 

A way yay hey

 

The circle, the circle, a circle of light

You take the left and I’ll come up right

All knit together, one to the other

Oh sister, ah brother

Circle of Light

 

Your eyes were a luminescent hue

They led me past what I thought I could do

Soon we were there in the forest of dreams

When I heard up above me the loudest of screams

 

A way yay hey

 

It said, ‘hey you, hey you, you down there, just got here I see

Well, reach up your hands, I’ll pull you up here with me

Cos once you’re up, you’re never back down

You’ll grab the next one who comes around’

 

A way yay hey

 

The circle, the circle, a circle of light

You take the left and I’ll come up right

All knit together, one to the other

Oh sister, ah brother

A Circle of Light

 

I saw you out of the corner of my eyes

Down at the edge of the woods, paralyzed

I came up and I took your hand

And I said, I’ll walk you to the promised land

 

A way yay hey

 

The circle, the circle, a circle of light

You take the left and I’ll come up right

All knit together, one to the other

Oh sister, ah brother

A Circle of Light

A Circle of Light

Lift Me Up

 

Dear god may I be an instrument of your love

May I rise up to meet the higher ground where you live

Dear god may I be an answer to a prayer

May I hear the whispered cry, when someone’s heart lays bare

 

Dear god I’m yours

I am yours

Lift me up that I may be

The one who reaches the one in need

Dear god may I be a paintbrush in your hand

May I trace with lines of grace the colors of your land

May I sing songs of hope that quiet down the noise

May I write wings of light, that travel with your voice

 

Dear god I’m yours

I am yours

 

Lift me up that I may be

The one who reaches the one in need

 

Use Me Well

Use Me Well

Use Me Well

Use Me Well

 

Lift me up that I may be

The one who reaches the one in need

Lift us up that we may be

The ones who reach the ones in need

Sweet Coming Home

Morning has come
Your arms are wrapped around me
You have found me
You have found me

Blessed are the ones
whose hearts have overcome
Love’s hard won
to this sweet coming home

You said be strong
Balance on the wire
There’s nothing wrong
with a little fire

Blessed are the ones
whose hearts have overcome
Love’s hard won
To this sweet coming home

Lead me up a mountain
Show me the view
I’ll go there often
Just to be with you

Blessed are the ones
whose hearts have overcome
love’s hard won
to this sweet coming home
Blessed are the ones
whose hearts have come undone
Love’s begun
this sweet coming home
this sweet coming home
this sweet coming home

Everything

 

Come, my love

Your heart is full

And you don’t know where to go

 

The life you led

Is empty now

You need a new home to live in

 

And I will build you

A house of love

You will be with me

 

Everything that you ever wanted

That you ever dream of is here

Every hope

Every prayer

Everything is here…everything…everything

 

You may feel alone now

But this is just the beginning

 

My arms reach down to hold you as

You walk in my light

 

And I will build you

A house of love

You will open the doors

 

Everything that you ever wanted

That you ever dream of is here

Every hope

Every prayer

Everything is here…everything…everything…

Thank You

I want to thank you for loving me

I want to thank you for loving me

Everyone loves someone

I want to thank you for loving me

 

I want to thank you for holding me

I want to thank you for holding me

Everyone holds someone

I want to thank you for holding me

 

Na na na….

 

I want to thank you for wanting me

I want to thank you for wanting me

Everyone gets someone

I want to thank you for wanting me

 

Na na na….

 

In this world there are lights

Ride you through the darkest nights

You are mine, in your eyes

I see to the end of time

 

I want to thank you for loving me

I want to thank you for loving me

Everyone loves someone

Everyone loves someone

Everyone loves someone

I want to thank you for loving me

 

Na na na….

Basking In The Godglow

 

Basking in the Godglow

Basking in the Godglow

Basking in your light

Basking in your light

The Light

The Light

I love you

But I can’t hold you

You are the breath

That moves through me

Basking in the Godglow

Basking in the Godglow

Basking in your light

Basking in your light

The Light

The Light

You love me

But I am a whisper

Blowing through

The wind

Basking in the Godglow

Basking in the Godglow

Basking in your light

Basking in your light

The Light

The Light

The Light

The Light

Loved, Safe, Held

Gentle one come to me

And I’ll hold you in my arms

You can enter from any direction

And you’ll never be alone

 

Loved Safe Held

Loved Safe Held

Loved Safe Held

Loved Safe Held

 

Be my eyes, see the grass grow

See the sunrise red and gold

If you listen behind the voices

You will hear me call your name

 

Loved Safe Held

Loved Safe Held

Loved Safe Held

Loved Safe Held

 

Remember we were together

Can you feel me in your heart

Come home now, I am waiting

This is where you’ll always be

 

Loved Safe Held

Loved Safe Held

Loved Safe Held

Loved Safe Held
