Track Name: Slow but Sure
Moving like a shire horse that pulls a tram
Moving like a car in a traffic jam
I'm getting along – slow but sure
Moving like a barge on a waterway
Moving like a yacht on a windless day
I'm getting along – slow but sure

I'm just sitting in the park watching flowers grow
If I am late I do not want to know
I've got a hold on this life of mine and I won't let go

Off you go ahead please if you don't mind
Seems to me you've all left me far behind
I'm getting along – slow but sure

I don't care if there are better things I like this place
I know it's only wind I have to chase
I'm not moving on for I'm the loser in the human race

Moving like a whale landed on the beach
Moving to a goal that is out of reach
I'm getting along – slow but sure
Track Name: Foggy Day
Help me, how did I get here
Is there somewhere clear to me
It isn’t easy to see
Foggy day. Clouds are all around
There is not a sound to me
I ask you how can this be

Walking around, arms in the air
Hoping there’s no one there
Walking around, picking my way
Nothing to say
Get out of my way.

Help me, what are we here for
Where’s the open door for me
That leads me to the rain.
Foggy day. I don’t see so well
And it feels like hell to me
And I can’t stand the pain.
Track Name: Different Worlds
You don’t understand my life
Why I would change and turn my life to something new
You say that you need no one
Once in a while I need someone to pull me through
We used to share all of our good times
But now you see everything different to me

We were once together
Now we live in different worlds
Seeing eye to eye
But now we live in different worlds
In different worlds our paths never meet

I say that I found the truth
You say that all can believe in what they like
I say death is not the end
You say that life ends just like a snuffed out light
There is no plan; no meeting of our minds
I hope and pray that you find you’re wrong some day
Track Name: Minstrel
You have your money to buy you into fame
Everybody knows you. They all recognize your name
And even with scorn you can criticize the way I play and sing
But I am a minstrel in the palace of the King

You’re always making sure that they hear your point of view
You’ve got to make sure that they always notice you
Wherever you’re seen all the newspapers report on everything
But you’re not a minstrel in the palace of the King

You can keep your influence. You needn’t think I mind.
And you can keep your Swiss bank accounts
They’re just a waste of time.
For you haven’t found one half of what I found
When I found forgiveness in Jesus my King
He gave me a tune that my heart learned to sing.

I am a minstrel. That is all I have to say.
I may not be much, but the Lord made me this way.
He filled me with joy and now He shelters me neath the shadow of His wing
Yes, He made me a minstrel in the palace of the King

You may have so much that’s yours you think heaven’s everywhere
How can I convince you you need God to take you there
For you haven’t found one half of what I found
When I found forgiveness in Jesus my King
He gave me a tune that my heart learned to sing.

Take note of my words. They are all I have to bring.
The words of a minstrel in the palace of the King.
Track Name: After All You Heard
After all you heard you still walk away
Knowing all you do it still doesn't sway your mind
No peace to find
I can show you all that God means to me
I can show you life as it's meant to be for you
He'll pull you through

God did it all to save the human race
You know it all but still you spit in his face
Taking your life in your own hands
Molding your life to your own plans
Losing it all at the end of the day.

Many times you heard of what God has done
Many times you heard it said of the Son of God
Our steps He trod
How you make your heart so cold I don't know
How you hear His voice and still have to go away
Why won't you stay?

Love is the reason Jesus came and died
You make it out as if He had always lied
Taking your life in your own hands
Molding your life to your own plans
Losing it all at the end of the day.
Track Name: Midnight Call
Midnight call it puts a smile on my face
Just like sunshine in the evening
Makes me hungry with a need to embrace
Eases the burden and the grieving

Midnight call – The next best thing to being by your side
Midnight call – For just a moment all the pain denied

The miles between us start to disappear
And in my mind I hold you to me
I can be with you, wipe away your tears
And you can have my love completely

Midnight call – It is communication’s Hobson’s Choice
Midnight call – If I can’t touch you then I hear your voice

When I can’t reach for your hand
To make you understand I want to be in your zone
And though you’re really not here
I can imagine you’re near by reaching out for the phone


Midnight call – It is communication’s Hobson’s Choice
Midnight call – If I can’t touch you then I hear your voice

So midnight calls can put a smile on your face
And make a difference to my day
Though we are worlds apart we’re in one place
It really counts what you and I say

Midnight call – I can’t sleep til I hear you ring
Midnight call – You lift my spirit, make my dull heart sing

Midnight call – The next best thing to being by your side
Midnight call – For just a moment all the pain denied

Midnight call – midnight call – midnight call – midnight call
Track Name: Princess
Everybody’s fairy tale needs a princess in a tower
Yet they are as rare as precious pearls
Let me take the time to tell you how my life got changed
When I met a special little girl
Lost for a moment on a bridge across the Thames
You smiled at me and took my hand
If I would love your Mum, I had to love her kids
You both made it easy for this man

By every power above
Everything I love
To me you lift my spirit with your smile
How could you understand
All that God for you had planned
Now He put you in my life for just a while
You are loved as much now grown, my precious child

What a special privilege to watch my princess grow
Looking more and more beautiful each day
How I thank the Lord for you! You’re always in my prayers
Whether you are home or far away
And when you smile at me my heart it melts like ice
And something special that you’ve known
Your fluttered eyelids always get you what you want
Just like a princess on a throne

And if you’re crying then I want to make it right
And take away from you the pain
I’d ease your burden; take your part in any fight
And I’d help you right back on your feet again
Track Name: When this Passing World Is Done
When this passing world is done,
When has sunk yon glaring sun,
When we stand with Christ in glory,
Looking o’er life’s finished story,
Then, Lord, shall I fully know—
Not till then—how much I owe.

When I stand before the throne,
Dressed in beauty not my own,
When I see Thee as Thou art,
Love Thee with unsinning heart,
Then Lord, shall I fully know—
Not till then—how much I owe.

Chosen not for good in me,
Wakened up from wrath to flee,
Hidden in the Savior’s side,
By the Spirit sanctified,
Teach me, Lord, on earth to show,
By my love, how much I owe.

Oft I walk beneath the cloud,
Dark, as midnight’s gloomy shroud;
But, when fear is at the height,
Jesus comes, and all is light;
Blessed Jesus! bid me show
Doubting saints how much I owe.
Track Name: Precious Perfume
You gave me all I had in the world
You taught me all I know
You cleansed my life of all its sin
And made me white as snow
You took me in despite who I am
Although you knew what I'd been through
Now you hear my prayers, you receive my praise
And treat the things I give to you as...

Precious Perfume
Precious Perfume
I stand enthralled in praise
To you I raise
All the joy that I can bring
Precious Perfume
Precious Perfume
You deserve the best of all I have my King

I know there's nothing we can bring
To get us right with God
It's only by the pain you bore
That in your steps I trod
But even as I give to you
The blessings come right back to me
How you answer prayers and receive my praise
Accept the things I give to be as...
Track Name: Heart and Soul
You take me to your banqueting table
Your love is all I need
You're like an apple tree within the forest
I long to sit in your shade
You are my God and yet my friend
You give your love so free
I stand amazed that the Lord Almighty
Should ever turn to me

I give you my soul
I give you my heart and soul O Lord
Do as you will
Keeping me still ever praising you

If I can't see you I have to find you
I have to search all day
I long to sit in my Lord's sweet presence
Listening to all you say
The best among ten thousand others
My King you're all I see
My God you're altogether lovely
To save someone like me
Track Name: Sweet Is the Work
Sweet is the work, my God, my king,
To praise Thy name, give thanks and sing,
To show Thy love by morning light
And talk of all Thy truth at night.

Sweet is the day of sacred rest,
No mortal care disturbs my breast.
O may my heart in tune be found,
Like David’s harp of solemn sound!

My heart shall triumph in my Lord
And bless His works and bless His Word.
Thy works of grace, how bright they shine!
How deep Thy counsels, how divine!

But I shall share a glorious part,
When grace has well refined my heart;
And fresh supplies of joy are shed,
Like holy oil, to cheer my head.

Then shall I see, and hear, and know
All I desired and wished below;
And every power find sweet employ
In that eternal world of joy.
Track Name: Tell It Like It Is
Sterile stable filled with sterile straw
Standing pretty on a clean swept floor
Silent cattle – who could ask for more?
At Christmas
Oh my Lord it wasn’t like this scene
As a stable it was cold and mean
You came to a world that’s so unclean
At Christmas

Why don’t we tell it like it is
The King of Glory came to this!
Lord of the universe who loves His children so
There are no depths for us you would not stoop to go.

On the Christmas card the glitter gleams
Moonlight shines abroad with silver beams
Like a little piece of heaven it seems
At Christmas
Yet the truth is even greater yet
Sin and dirt and heaven’s Glory met
That’s the meaning we must not forget
At Christmas

Greater love has none than this, my friend
That the Lord for us His Son would send
And the way for us to heaven He mends
At Christmas
Peace on Earth goodwill to men we sing
Praise to Jesus Christ the Infant King
Praise the Lord Above for everything
At Christmas
