THE STORY:
The songs on this album were written during a season when my wife and I were unable to have children. While always having a heart for adoption and praying about what the Lord wanted us to do with the songs, we believed the Lord wanted us to make an album and devote all the proceeds to raising money for our (and hopefully others') adoption.

When we decided to do this, the Lord began blessing immensely. People began volunteering to help make the album. Others from our church and family began giving money to cover the travel and food expenses while recording as well as the first steps of the adoption process. Some of this support came from people we hadn't even met before. By the end of the process, the only expense incurred in the making of this album was the mastering!

Our desire is that this album will not only allow us to raise the money we need to adopt but to also provide a platform for gospel ministry both in the church and the world.

SPECIAL THANKS:
Thanksgiving is due first of all to Jesus Christ who was the first to come after the poor and helpless. I wouldn’t be here if he hadn’t adopted me.

This album was made only for the cost of mastering due to the gospel-fueled generosity of my fellow adopted brothers and sisters. Everyone involved in this project volunteered their time and abilities to make it a reality. Special thanks to Mark and Jacob who worked countless hours planning, setting up, editing, and mixing; and always willing and eager to go the extra mile. They did, for a person they’ve never met, what Jesus did for them – made themselves poor that another might be made rich.

Special thanks also to my wife, Beth, who has borne this burden with me, and always with an abundance of selfless love, support, and wisdom.

Track Name: O For a Thousand Tongues
VERSE 1
O for a thousand tongues to sing
My great Redeemer’s praise
The glories of my God and King
The triumphs of His grace

VERSE 2
He breaks the power of canceled sin
He sets the prisoner free
His blood can make the foulest clean
His blood availed for me

CHORUS
O for a thousand tongues to sing
O for a thousand years to praise
The glories of my God and King
The triumphs of His grace
My great Redeemer's name

VERSE 3
Hear Him, ye deaf; His praise, ye dumb
Your loosened tongues employ
Ye blind, behold your Savior come
And leap, ye lame, for joy

VERSE 4
Glory to God, and praise and love
Be ever, ever given
By saints below and saints above
The church in earth and heaven
Track Name: Alas and Did My Savior Bleed
VERSE 1
Alas and did my Savior bleed and did my Sovereign die?
Would he devote that sacred head for such a worm as I?

CHORUS
It was for crimes that I had done
That he groaned upon the tree
Amazing pity, grace unknown
And love beyond degree
And love beyond degree

VERSE 2
Thy body slain, sweet Jesus, thine and bathed in its own blood
While the firm mark of wrath divine, his Soul in anguish stood

VERSE 3
Thus might I hide my blushing face while his dear cross appears
Dissolve my heart in thankfulness and melt my eyes to tears
Track Name: For the Beauty of the Earth
VERSE 1
For the beauty of the earth
For the glory of the skies
For the love which from our birth
Over and around us lies

For the beauty of each hour
Of the day and of the night
Hill and vale, and tree and flower
Sun and moon, and stars of light

CHORUS
Lord of all, to Thee we raise,
This our hymn of grateful praise

VERSE 2
For the meekness of that hour
God the Son in human flesh
Sent to free us from the power
And the grip of darkness

For the sins of fallen men
Hear him groan upon the tree
Bearing all the weight of sin
That from sin we might be free

VERSE 3
For the hour when Jesus cried
“It is finished, it is done
This my life a sacrifice
Souls for God that I have won”

For the dawning of that day
Christ is risen from the grave
See the darkness fade away
He alive with pow’r to save
Track Name: Leaning On the Everlasting Arms
VERSE 1
What a fellowship, what a peace is mine
Leaning on the everlasting arms
What a blessedness, what a joy divine
I have found within his loving arms

CHORUS
I am leaning, I am leaning on the everlasting arms
Where I am safe from all alarms
Because in Jesus all my sins are gone, I now belong to him
Where I’m secure within his arms

VERSE 2
O how sweet to walk along this pilgrim way
While leaning on the everlasting arms
O how bright the path grows from day to day
While trusting in the ever-guiding arms

BRIDGE
What can separate me from
The love of Jesus Christ
I will not fear, whate’er may come
For he has given me new life, his life

VERSE 3
What have I to dread, what have I to fear
Protected by his ever-shelt’ring arms
Yes, I have blessed peace because my Lord’s so near
Resting in his ever-loving arms
Track Name: All I Need
VERSE 1
In the shadows, you are there
In the sorrow, you are there
When my flesh faints, when I’m worn, I’ll sing this song
My soul needs you and nothing more

CHORUS
Your steadfast love is better than life
I have all I need in Jesus Christ
So in the day or in the night
I will cling to you, I will cling to you

VERSE 2
In the silence, you are there, upholding me
In the darkness, you are there, sustaining me
Through the desert, through the storm, I'll sing this song
You are God, I need nothing more

BRIDGE
And as long as I live I will bless your name
And with joy I will sing and spread your fame
And my lips will say and my life will declare
That you, you, you are all that I need
