Symphony no.1 (Compose Me) Clinging to the earth Hanging by a thread, hanging by a thread Naked from my birth Nothing when I'm dead, nothing when I dead Cut me down, I'm almost ready To fall into your grace I'm a mess, but you'll be steady If I land on my face CHORUS Compose me like a Symphony I will be yours, I will be yours Compose me like a Symphony I will be yours, I will be yours Silence breaks me in broken for so long, broken for so long but if I never sing again My soul will be my song Write me down into this story in pages of your love If I fail you suffered for me This hope will be enough

We are slaves to these age old afflictions Fighting for control until we fell too far Pursue desire, ignore our convictions Only wretched souls beneath the weeping stars We are calling out in the thick of the war I am standing down to fight for something more would we cease the battles let this love resound Still too hard to find our common ground There's a fire that stays bold and courageous There's a light to light the way And we try so hard to heal our diseases We break to pieces when our hope has failed Some will live or die, without a reason Such are the seasons still our faith prevails We are lost and found and beg to be restored We keep falling down, harder than before But love will find a way to give us strength to carry on Sorrow for now but someday soon be gone There's a fire that stays bold and courageous There's a light to light the way So we come and go it's still a mystery and we'll be history long before we find all the secrets since now and forever We hope for better on the other side God, hear the cries of your people There's a fire that stays bold and courageous There's a light to light the way

Lament 04:15
They say you are jealous, they say you are kind But the jealous part seems to win all the time If you are so mighty, why do you break The weak and the weary and steal what they make They say you're forgiving, that you'll not forsake But you punched me out when I made a mistake I tried to find beauty in the mess that you made But you just stayed angry and never forgave Yes, I know you are great But is a bad God, better than none? How much more will it take to undo the damage that you have done? 'Cause the wicked and wayward continue to thrive And the martyrs continue giving their lives Oh the faithful never survive Oh the faithful never survive You're the almighty so I am afraid you crushed me to pieces and stole what I made If hopeless delusion is the righteous man's fate I don't know how much more I can take Yes, I know you are great But is a bad God, better than none? How much more will it take to undo the damage that you have done? 'Cause the wicked and wayward continue to thrive And the martyrs continue giving their lives Oh the faithful never survive Oh the faithful never survive God are you listening, please hear my cry I don't really believe you're more cruel than you're kind But I'm getting tired of repeating this line "The faithful never survive" Yes I know you are great That you're a good God and you are love How much more will it take To undo the damage that I have done? Please conquer these demons and the darkness inside Shine your light on this cold heart of mine Maybe my faith will survive Maybe my faith will survive Maybe my faith will survive

She's only twelve and sells for thirty dollars And that man is old enough to be her father He holds her down while darkness takes her over and he steals her soul On a concrete floor she lays her head And she hopes that she's already dead While the kings and queens in the feather beds Sleep so soundly All the world's a hole and I am falling Too deaf to hear you calling I wish that I could set you free but I'm just another man. He's only five a child and a soldier They will make him kill his people when he's older And late at night he calls out for his mother But he took her life He's pretending to be brave instead since his family's already dead I cover up my ears and turn my head While he screams so loudly My heart is open but my hands are hiding afraid I'll feel you dying I wish that I could touch your soul but I'm just another man There's not much I can do Father, Hear our broken cries From a world so fallen Help us see That in one man our hope will never die And his people call him Savior Jesus, Love abounding give me strength to do all that I can and I am not just another man. Umoya Ungcwele (Holy Spirit)
