Be

Be

I wrote this during a sermon last week. It didn’t have anything to do with the sermon, per se, but the preacher was talking about different people having different gifts, and this was stirring about in my head.

Now, is it cheating if you have a 45 second song, and simply repeat it three times to get it over two minutes?

Lyrics

I am
You are
He is the Savior

He is
And was
And always will be

I am
You Are
We were created

He gives
Us Life
And in Him we will be
And in Him we will be
And in Him we will be

Beautiful

Started while driving from Des Moines to Omaha on 16 February 2011, continued on flights from Columbus to Chicago and Chicago to Austin on 18 February 2011, finally finished off in Paige on 20 Feb.  Ooops. Nope, not done yet.  Okay, finished, at least for now, at home 22 Feb.

I was pretty excited about this song when I started it, but I just haven’t been able to pull it together the way I wanted to.  Fought hard with the lyrics, still don’t like them.  And it didn’t come out the way I wanted it to musically, either.  But I need to take a break from this so I can finish FAWM a winner!

I can’t stop thinking of the way you solved the riddle
All the sins that I was stained with, now you’ve washed me clean
What I had put asunder, could not be joined together
You found a way that you could make it whole again

I can’t stop thinking of the way you gave forgiveness
You took three nails on a cross, You wore a crown of thorns
You suffered, died and then, you rose to life again
You conquored death for me and all who live in you

And You are beautiful
You made me beautiful
Everything’s beautiful in You
You are beautiful
You made me beautiful
Everything’s beautiful in You

I can’t stop thinking of the the way you filled my spirit
Like a fire you breathed into me, and set my heart aflame
I want to live my life in you, the way you made me to
Cause if the Son has set me free, then I am free indeed

I can’t stop thinking of the way you solved the riddle
How the death that I was cursed with you took off of me
If I keep my life I’m loosing, if I give it then I’m choosing
To spend it with you joyful in eternity

And You are beautiful
You made me beautiful
Everything’s beautiful in You
You are beautiful
You made me beautiful
Everything’s beautiful in You

And You are beautiful
You made me beautiful
Everything’s beautiful in You
You are beautiful
You made me beautiful
Everything’s beautiful in You

Holy One

Written in 2009.  Recorded tonight.

Holy One
Copyright 2009 Stephen G Brown

From the rising up to the setting sun
I will seek you Lord, you are the Holy One
When my work begins, when my day is done
I will worship You, You are the Holy One

I love You and I sing Your praise
I will worship You for all my days
And when my days on earth are through
Forever I will worship You

Shout and sing children of Zion
For great in your midst is the Holy One (Isaiah 12:6)
You will be gathered up by God’s own Son
Our eyes will look upon the Holy One (Isaiah 17:7)

I love You and I sing Your praise
I will worship You for all my days
And when my days on earth are through
Forever I will worship You

He will be despised and the nations scorn
But prince and king shall bow to the Holy One (Isaiah 49:7)
He will be made known to all of Adam’s sons
Pure will be the name of the Holy One (Ezekiel 39:7)

I love You and I sing Your praise
I will worship You for all my days
And when my days on earth are through
Forever I will worship You

Come Live In Me

Come Live In Me
©2011 Stephen G Brown

Confused the east and west
When the sun comes up
Thought it was going down.

Thought day was night
Thought dark was light back then
I see much clearer now.

Come live in me that I might
Grow into the creation
That You made me for
Made me to be

These eyes have seen the Savior
A Light for all the nations
Joy of Israel
Sent to rescue me

I walked in counsel
That was all my own
It seemed to wise to me

But God’s foolishness
is wiser than
Any man can be

Come live in me that I might
Grow into the creation
That You made me for
Made me to be

These eyes have seen the Savior
A Light for all the nations
Joy of Israel
Sent to rescue me

He offered up His life
And washed us clean
His death has set us free

He rose to live again
Gives life to those who dwell in Him
He made the blind to see

Come live in me that I might
Grow into the creation
That You made me for
Made me to be

These eyes have seen the Savior
A Light for all the nations
Joy of Israel
Sent to rescue me
