Track Name: Charms
Charms and lilies fill in my mind while my soul tries to find comfort in your strong rod, but I don't deserve to know a God who gave his life to be poor, wanting to know me more. For this, my dear king, forever, forever I will sing of when your heart entered mine, pouring forth your divine spirit and a son's shine.

We sang a dirge for you, you came and brought us glad tidings. With all our worries passed, you told us there's freedom at last. Living water below me, always there just to hold me. It trickles up and down my sleeves. Oh please! The fun begins when I'm gathered in your throne spending time with you alone or with friends but of course you'll find us all again.
Track Name: Always On Mind
"Take your time and always see the beauty in the sky;"
"If you're washed out, go and love your best and take your time;"
"Sometimes there's change, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't try;"
"Know that you are always;
"always on my mind."

The memories I've kept are covered in snow. I've retraced my footsteps and I won't let go.
Track Name: Beauty and Bonds
Beauty in the love that only God gives. Love that lets the broken truly forgive and sets free.

I once found a choice lamb outside, but moral starved my stomach and my mind so I ate reeds.

Death got his grip on me. I tried but I have a home where I'm bound, where I'm set free.

I saw your eyes one starry night. It gleamed, it sang, then morning began. I leaned in to see my own memory. Lately it seems to be free.
Track Name: Gentle Colors
Lately, I've been a bit weary from the loss of color trailing off my eyes.
But darling, your joy cheers the sulker basking by the robins
Those bears are blessed just to have you breathing in their mountains
While we're thinking of you sweetly, darling, take care of your own eyes
I wouldn't want them withered
Be far but keep thinking of me while we're living our lives
Tell me how your love's improving

Jesus, Lord of all and savior, who alone finished my labor, thank you for the friend you gave me. Let her live to see the great king.
