Track Name: Lost in Wonder
Godhead here in hiding, whom I do adore,
Masked by these bare shadows, shape and nothing more,
See, Lord, at thy service low lies here a heart
Lost, all lost in wonder at the God thou art.

Seeing, touching, tasting are in thee deceived:
How says trusty hearing? that shall be believed;
What God's Son has told me, take for truth I do;
Truth himself speaks truly or there's nothing true.

O thou our reminder of Christ crucified,
Living Bread, the life of us for whom he died,
Lend this life to me then: feed and feast my mind,
There be thou the sweetness man was meant to find.

Bring the tender tale true of the Pelican;
Bathe me, Jesus Lord, in what thy bosom ran---
Blood whereof a single drop has power to win
All the world forgiveness of its world of sin.

Let me harder hope and dearer love.

Jesus, whom I look at shrouded here below,
I beseech thee send me what I thirst for so,
Some day to gaze on thee face to face in light
And be blest for ever with thy glory's sight.
Track Name: Watch for the Dawn
The moon and the stars peek out of the fog to praise You
The turtles and frogs come forth from the rocks to sing
And all creation aches
For this morning dawn to break
We groan for the freedom and glory it will bring

Rain falls on the leaves on the ground
Living water’s got the smell and the sound
Who will break out of the silence and sing?
Who will watch for the dawn and believe?

The saints will arise when it’s dark outside to praise You
And on bended knee we wait for the humble king
Who brought the radiant sunrise
Down to visit from on high
Oh, the freedom and the glory morning brings
Track Name: But You Do
You gotta be careful where you go from here
I guarantee it’ll never be as clear
as when you were back in town with all the amenities and so forth
All kinds of puffed-up people want to take on you
You gotta give ‘em some room and leave the folly for fools
Cuz they cannot see their lives are worth something to the Lord

I’m telling you that man has got nothing to lose
I’m telling you that man has got nothing to lose
I’m telling you that man has got nothing to lose...but you do!

It’s time to start learning how to pick your fights
Learn to wait for the Lord and start to lay down rights
If you can keep your mouth shut, you just might survive this stage
You gotta let go the anger and forsake the wrath
Fret not yourself, Pull Back the Attack!
Bless and do not curse and leave it to the Lord to vindicate

Well don’t worry about me, I’ve been through worse
I won’t let that dirty cash-keeper get his filthy hands in my purse
Immersed in the curse from the birth to the hearse
But I’m making my home where the last shall be the first
Track Name: Who Cares What They Say About Us Anyway
I could not keep this thing from you
I like a jazzier kind of blues
The kind that warms you when the evening comes
And you’ve got nothing left to lose

So let it play
After a long day
And turn the treble down
About half-way
Who cares what they say?
Who cares what they say about us anyway?

Just a shot of something strong, honey
Don’t put it on ice
Long hours and short on money
I’ll take it chilled will suffice
When finally the still of evening comes
And you’ve got nothing left to prove

Then let it play
After a long day
And turn the treble down
About half-way
Who cares what they say?
Who cares what they say about us anyway?

And raise a glass
Of the mediocre class
And as the sun goes down
Dedicate it to the past
Who cares what they say?
Who cares what they say about us anyway?
