about

I Will Praise You is a collection of songs spanning from the first song (with lyrics) I ever wrote to the bonus track (#13), written in 2011 for a Men's Breakfast at church. This explores bits of my journey as worship arts pastor, the blessings and heartaches, successes and sufferings of ministry. There's even a Christmas tune in there, graciously and excellently sung by my dear friend, Sean Sooter.

released December 25, 2013

I'm exceedingly and abundantly blessed to have been married to my best friend and amazing woman of God who endlessly encourages and supports me in every musical/ministry pursuit. To the love of my life, [don't call her] Jenny, inexpressible thanks. I love you.

None of this would be possible apart from the constant and extravagant generosity of my Papa and Mom, who fueled my passion for music with lessons, instruments, gadgets and software to continually inspire me. I'm extremely grateful to them, love them and am thankful that they saw something God built into me before I did and invested in that.

There's no encourager like Dan Miller, a great friend, constant support and promoter. For his continual proddings, I'm forever grateful.

Special thanks to those who contributed their musical talents to the instrumentation:
Gary Whitesides - Drums on Good News and You Are
Reese Hogg III - Organ on Good News
Dave Langett - Saxophone on Good News
Aaron Parker - Bass on The Harvest is Here
Sean Sooter - Lead Vocal on Your Son
Mike Cartwright - Trumpet on Love Like You

And for lyrical inspirations by my pastor and friend, Caleb Tyler, by Pastor Robin Smith for preaching the inspiration for "I'm Here," by Steve Adams, and Reinhard Bonnke.

Track Name: Good News
I've got some good, good, good news
I just can't keep it to myself
Or leave it stuck up on the shelf
I need to share this love I've found
'Cuz in His heart I'm safe and sound
I've gotta spread this thing around

Because He paid my ransom
I feel the need to dance some
I had this debt that I could never repay
And even though there's no way
I'm gonna get out and say

I've got some good, good, good news
I just can't keep it to myself
Or leave it stuck up on the shelf
I need to share this love I've found
'Cuz in His heart I'm safe and sound
I've gotta spread this thing around

Our brother shivers in the cold
But he needs only to be told
There's warmth inside that I cannot describe
But you and I can abide
In Him who laid down His life and that's some

Good, good, good news
I just can't keep it to myself
Or leave it stuck up on the shelf
I need to share this love I've found
'Cuz in His heart I'm safe and sound
I've gotta spread this thing around

I've got some good, good, good news
I just can't keep it to myself
Or leave it stuck up on the shelf
I need to share this love I've found
'Cuz in His heart I'm safe and sound
I've gotta spread this thing around

In His heart I'm safe and sound
I've gotta spread this thing around
'Cuz I've got good news

Track Name: Coming Home
I've never been this free
To walk in perfect liberty
Christ is here and He holds my hand
And He lifts me up so I can stand
The greatest joy I've ever known is coming home

I thank the Lord my spirit's been released
He has come and said, "with you I am well pleased"
So when you get the chance raise your hands
And praise the Lord for His romance to you
And His romance to me

And now I see His face He's on the throne
And though I'm not with you I'm not alone
The greatest joy I've ever known is coming home

So cry if your heart has a reason
But let those tears remain for just a season
Because I've never seen a love like this
It's the very thing I couldn't miss
The greatest joy I've ever known is coming home

And now I'm here to help prepare for you
The place that you'll be going to
When your work is through
I'll be waiting here for you
The greatest joy you'll ever know is coming home

You have a brand new day because I'm here
I want you to hear that I hold you dear
And I will wipe away each tear
I'm here

I will be with you
I will comfort you
I will see you through
I will cover you
I will strengthen you
I will heal you
I will rescue you
I will carry you

When the night's too long when it's all gone wrong
You'll sing a brand new song because I'm here
I want you to hear that I hold you dear
And I'm more than near
I'm here

I want you to hear that I hold you dear
And I'm more than near
I'm here
Track Name: Everything Left is Right
Everything left is right again
You are restoring our sight again
Setting our eyes on Your light and plan
To save everyone

Everything left is right again
Let us all someday unite again
Binding up ties that we might amend
Friendships we'd begun

We weren't prepared for the trials we'd face
But You ran beside keeping us in the race

Everything left is right again
The future we see is now bright again
We made it through the night and then
Into the Son

Everything left is right again
Your vision returns and is heightened then
Winning each one that we can again
Your will be done Your will be done
Track Name: Your Son (feat. Sean Sooter)
I don't know how to follow where You're leading
Beside the burping, changing, clothing, cuddling, feeding
Of this child that is mine
What's in Your grand design?
How is a man supposed to raise God?

This task is great
This child so small
Will be the One who'll someday save us all
Then all will know how separate from Your light
That we were without Your Son

How can I set myself and Mary up
When she and I
Aren't even worthy to drink from His cup?
Are You sure You wouldn't rather trust another
With Your Son?

God, bring out the man You want to see
The one that You are seeing living inside of me
Help me be the man to raise Your Son
And though this task has only just begun
My contribution's either all or none
So I thank You now
For making me the father of Your Son

Lord, I praise Your name for all You've done
For Mary, me, and everyone
And that every promise that You've made
You'll honor through Your Son
Through Your Son
Track Name: Love Like You
Lord, I know Your Spirit lives within me
You've bought me back, redeemed me with Your blood
So with all Your grace inside me
Your mercy there to guide me
Why is it so hard to show Your love?

Lord, I know Your Spirit lives within me
You've bought me back, redeemed me with Your blood
So with all Your grace inside me
Your mercy there to guide me
How can it be hard to show Your love?

I want to love like You
All Your children who are hurting
That they would see right through
That part of me that blocks their view
Of the Savior who forgave me
Who came to earth to save me
The very One who wants to save them too

Lord, You still continue to forgive me
Even when I'm far from innocence
And when I miss the mark I aim for
And hurt the ones I adore
I return to You
And You take me back again

I want to love like You
Forgive Your children who would hurt me
Who'd look me in the face
And lie while sitting in their pew
Forgive like You forgave me
When You gave Your life to save me
Knowing all too well that I'd deny You too

I want to love like You
Even when no one's around me
With everything I do knowing I resemble You
'Cuz serving You's my pleasure
Your gift of love my treasure
So love through me as I will love through You
Love through me as I will love through You

I want to love like You
All the broken that surround me
With everything I have, there is something I can do
To meet them where they're living
And worship in my giving
So when they see me, they realize it's You
Love through me as I will love through You
