LYRICS

evergreen 

01  evergreen

Hosea 14:8

 

All my hope for harvest- is coming quickly to an end

As my autumn turns to winter- before my eyes again

My dreams – they all keep falling- Like the leaves under my feet

Once so full of color- now they turned their back on me

 

But that’s not You- You’ve been there

Watching me through the breeze

You’re ever changing – never fading with Your love for me

 

You’re my evergreen- You never fade away

Though the seasons change- You remain the same

My evergreen- I’m gonna climb you to the top

And see all I can see- Cause You’re my- my evergreen

 

Now the sun shines through this forest- Right through the naked trees

And the shadows keep o shifting- but they cast no spell on me

Cause you have been shelter- reviving all my dreams

And You’re bringing back their color- that I thought I’d never see

Cause that’s just You- You’ve been here

Holding me in the breeze

You’re ever changing – never fading with Your love for me

 

I can’t stop the rain from fallin’ – no no no no no

I can’t stop the whirling wind- no no

But nothing can stop me from running- no no no no no

Into your arms again…..

02  keep workin’ on me

Isaiah 29:16

 

I’m a work in progress

I’m a portrait yet undone

I am sculpture to be fired

I am artwork of the Son

 

But don’t listen to me

When I start to cry “Oh No”

And You chip away these pieces

Just keep workin’…

 

Keep workin’ on me (keep workin’ on me)

Just do what You have to do (have to do)

Keep workin’ on me (keep workin’ on)

‘Cause I know that You love me

Keep workin’-  I’m trustin’ You

 

I’m a field wild with orchids

I’m a vineyard in the rain

I’m a weeping- weeping willow

I gotta cry

And I’m longing to bring shade

 

But don’t listen to me

When I start to cry “Oh No”

And You prune away these branches

Just keep workin’…

 

I know You finish what You start

(that’s what You say) That’s what You say

So I’ll keep holdin’ on as You restore my heart

03  oh to be the moon

Psalm 19:1-3

 

Oh to be the moon

Is what I want to be

To be a mirror way up high

And to be the moon

I’d be set apart

Shining brightly

In a dark blue sky

 

To be a reflection

Of The Mighty One

To be a testimony

When we cannot see the sun- and

 

Shine Shine Shine

With a light that’s not my own

Down upon a world

That can’t live without You- and

Climb Climb Climb

Higher to become

A better image of the Son

Oh to be the moon

 

You illuminate my life

With the falling of Your rays

Into the craters of my heart

And through each phase of mine

You never leave me ‘lone

No, You guide me through the darkness

And Your light leads me home

 

I was so cold and lonely

My heart was hardening

But now I got Your Spirit in me

And all I can do is sing- and

04  and she wonders

Romans 8:28

She wakes up in the mornin’- gets ready to start her day

She wishes that she had more time to stop and pray

Distractions seem to take advantage of her mind

But she longs to sit and rest at the feet of Jesus all the time

 

And she wonders…why? 

And she wonders…when?

And she wonders…how will this work out for the good in the end?

And she wonders…why?

And she wonders…when?

And she wonders…how will this work out for the good in the end?

 

Questions lurk inside her heart and answers that she longs to know

Oh-but little is the time that she makes to ask Him and she reaps what she sows

And the days keep turning over and over and the moments just slip away

And there’s nothin’ left to do but to blame herself for the mess that she’s made

 

Oh- and the questions keep spinning around in her head

But she never lays them down

They keep spinning around- in her head

Oh- but she never lays them down

She’s just to busy to pray

I say she never lays them down

She’s just to busy to talk to Him

 

Look – well I see that girl – she’s finally settlin’ down

She’s got that Book wide open– I can see her from here- and her head is down

Tears are flowing from her eyes- the tears are flowing down

They’re tears of sorrow and they’re tears of joy for The Hope that she’s found

 

And He whispers…“Don’t’ worry why- No No- Don’t worry when

‘Cause My plans for you work for the good in the end

Don’t worry why- Don’t worry when-

‘Cause My plans for you work for the good in the end

Just talk to Me- Just talk to Me-

‘Cause I’m waiting here never leave you won’t you talk to Me?

Oh- Just talk to Me- Oh won’t you talk to Me?-

Well I’m waiting here never leave you won’t you talk to Me?...yeah”

05  princess

John 15:13

 

Once upon a time- not so long ago

There lived a princess but she didn’t know

Her heart was on earthy pleasures

 

And there was a King in the land

Who called upon her hand

His heart- was on heavenly treasures

 

And He saw who she could be

‘Cause He had the eyes to see

And He promised her royalty

And He made a princess- outta’ me

 

Well now- she had tattered clothes

And her shoes were full of holes- well

Her clothes- they wouldn’t storm the weather

No no no no no no

But He had- garments new

That were custom through and through

His robes- oh they’d never sever

 

And He knew me in the womb- oh

And He gave me - so much more than a silver spoon

And He had a plan for His bride- oh yeah

And He’d never stop- He’d lay down His life

 

I had no bed- no place to rest my head

But I dreamed of somethin’ better- oh well now

He had a home- a mansion for His own

In His house- we will live forever

 

 ‘Cause He saw who I could be

And He had the eyes to see

He promised me royalty

And He made a princess- outta’ me

Yeah- He made a princess outta’ me---oooh
