about

I wrote these five songs in the context of being a worship leader and worshiper. What is true religion and how does that come across in what we sing to God? My journey is not complete, but I am learning that much of what I thought was “true” was just a hollow piety, starving my life from the one who is my life. Jesus. I hope you discover with me the sacred place where the help that we need exists. Grace.

- Rich

Track Name: Hear Our Voice
The broken and abused
The lost, the hurt, confused
The sinners or ones used
Heaven, hear our voice

Addicted and depraved
Religious and unsaved
The blinded or enslaved
Heaven, hear our voice

Oh, Welcome home, Oh, welcome home

The broken and abused
The lost, the hurt, confused
The sinners or ones used
Heaven, hear our voice

Addicted and depraved
Religious and unsaved
The blinded or enslaved
Heaven, hear our voice

The cries of the orphan fills the ocean
As heaven dries each drop of their tears
The voice of the widow rings like thunder
As heaven sings each word of her prayer

Oh, Welcome home, Oh, welcome home

A suffering servant bruised and torn
For this reason you were born
You set our hearts right and true
So we could find a home in you

Show our love to the least of these
With this religion God is pleased...
Track Name: Grace Found Me
In the dark of doubt, I’m closer to good news
For it takes a broken heart
To finally hear the truth

A prodigal I am, reaching for the father’s hand

Grace, grace you found me
From my shame now I’m set free
Grace, grace you saved me
From my blindness now I can see, grace
I see grace

Your favor can’t be earned
My efforts fall in vain
For I have a broken heart
And, I’m the one to blame

A prodigal I am, reaching for the father’s hand

Grace, grace you found me
From my shame now I’m set free
Grace, grace you saved me
From my blindness now I can see, grace
I see grace
Track Name: Sacred Place
Approach with confidence,
Your throne takes no offense
My help comes from this sacred place
Invite me as a friend and sweetly offer me this grace

From the walls of the cathedral
Let me heart echo your praise
From the heights of the steeple
Let my thoughts of you be raised

Approach with confidence,
Your throne takes no offense
My help comes from this sacred place
Invite me as a friend and sweetly offer me this grace

From the walls of the cathedral
Let me heart echo your praise
From the heights of the steeple
Let my thoughts of you be raised

The temple veil was torn in two
I run to the mercy seat
Into the holy the holies
To get the help I need!

From the walls of the cathedral
Let me heart echo your praise
From the heights of the steeple
Let my thoughts of you be raised

...My help comes from this sacred place.
Track Name: Drink The Divine
I thirst in the desert no food or no rain
I pray for revival, a mountain top change
This journey will lead me, from valley to hill
Will I count all as lost and eat my soul’s fill?
My soul’s fill?

Drink the divine, end your starvation take in the pure wine
Drink the divine, a mystical union with Jesus the Vine

Its not just commitment, or the good that I do
Or knowledge of theories that make my life true
Its you and you Jesus, I need to embrace
Rejecting my ways and accepting your grace
Your grace

Drink the divine, end your starvation take in the pure wine
Drink the divine, a mystical union with Jesus the Vine

Religion’s elixir will waste us away
But the life blood of Jesus empowers today!

Religion’s elixir will waste us away
But the life blood of Jesus empowers today!

We drink from his cup and we eat of his bread
He said “it is finished” the Old Man is dead

We drink from his cup and we eat of his bread
He said “it is finished” the Old Man is dead

Drink the divine, end your starvation take in the pure wine
Drink the divine, a mystical union with Jesus the Vin
Track Name: Providence
I’m just a stitch in God’s tapestry
Through the marking of passing time
I’m being weaved in history
With providence it all makes sense
With providence it all makes sense

A scarlet thread, the redeemer’s plan
We see a holy and loving God
Simply reaching out his hand
With providence it all makes sense
With providence it all makes sense

Nations will rise, nations will fall
Kings will come and kings will go
But one thing for certain,
All of history will show
The simple fact, our God is in control
Our God is in control

When trials come, why be tattered by our fears
The choice is our to trust a God
Who keeps and counts our tears
With providence it all makes sense
With providence it all makes sense

Nations will rise, nations will fall
Kings will come and kings will go
But one thing for certain,
All of history will show
The simple fact, our God is in control
Our God is in control

Unraveled lives, desperate people make their plea
Adjusting to God’s grand design means no guarantees
I walk by faith and not by sight
And, as I take each step I see the face of Christ

Nations will rise, nations will fall
Kings will come and kings will go
But one thing for certain,
All of history will show
The simple fact, our God is in control
Our God is in control
