Jonathon Reed I love the vocals and set of instruments, but what really makes this album great is the humble gospel message, focused on justice and mercy and that too-often untold story of ramshackle redemption. Favorite track: Stained Glass.

Track Name: Precious Lord
A C#
Precious Lord, take my hand
D D#dim
Lead me on, help me stand
A F# B E
I am tired, I am weak, I am worn
A C#
Through the storm, through the night,
D D#dim
lead me on, to the light
A E A / Cdim / B / E
take my hand Precious Lord, and lead me on

When the darkness appears and the night draws near
and the day, and the day is passed and gone
Hear my cry, hear my call, hold my hand, lest I fall
Take my hand, Precious Lord, and lead me on
Track Name: Deep Waters
Intro: C#m - G#m - A - G#m

C#m G#m F#m
the deep waters covered me, I sank to the depths like a stone
C#m G#m F#m
in a sea of trouble and no sign of the shore
G#m A
cords of death they grab my feet
G#7
all this hurt surrounding me

how did it come to this, I was made for more
shouldn’t I be leading the great procession to your door?
but all I see are my regrets
a world of struggle, pain, and mess

C#m B
everything in me calls out to You
A G#7
even though Your face may fade from view
C#m B
you keep my lamp burning through the night
A G#7
Lord, you turn my darkness into light

my spirit is failing, but You’re the strength of my heart
remember my prayers to you and come find me in the dark
I will trust your ceaseless love
Your provision is enough

everything in me calls out to You
even though Your face may fade from view
you keep my lamp burning through the night
Lord, you turn my darkness into light

these deep waters won’t be the end for me
I remember your promise to calm the raging sea
I recall your rescue plan
and I am safe within your hands and...

everything in me calls out to You
even though Your face may fade from view
you keep my lamp burning through the night
Lord, you turn my darkness into light
Track Name: Dumpster Divers
(Key of G)

Come now and join the feast,
from the greatest to the very least,
come now & join the feast,
right here in the belly of the beast.

Cops & soldiers you can come too -
lay down y'r guns & c'mon thru.
Rich people get rid of y'r stuff.
Poor people there will be enough.

Might ones c'm down from y'r thrones.
Little ones you will not be alone.
lazy man come to the table
make some food for thos who ain't able
pretty winner swallow your pride
drink the ugly loser who for all died
make sure everyone gets some
then we'll see the kingdom...
Track Name: Walk With Me, O Humbly
E
I don’t want your religious festivals
A Abdim B7
I despise your holy gatherings
E A C#m F#
I don’t want your special meetings
E B7 E
I want you to live out justice, love mercy and walk with me

E B7 E
Walk with me, O humbly walk with me
E A B7
Walk with me, humbly walk with me
E A C#m
God has shown us what is good, Streams of Justice like a flood
E B7 E
Walk with me, humbly walk with me

I have brought you out of Egypt
and redeemed you from slavery
I have shown you, O mortal what is good
I want you to live out Justice, love Mercy and walk with me

I don’t want your noisy songs
I won’t listen to the sound of your guitars
All your sacrifices are as bad as all your vices
I want you to live out Justice, love Mercy and walk with me

Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done
for the widows, orphans, poor and the oppressed,
for the hungry, those in prison, let our hearts beat in unison
As we live out Justice, love Mercy and walk humbly

Micah 6:1-8
Amos 5:21-24
Track Name: Stained Glass
D G
We are like windows
D G A
Stained with colors of the rainbow
D G
Set in a darkened room
D G A D
Till the bridegroom comes shining through

Then the colors fall around our feet, over those we meet
Covering all the gray that we see
Rainbow colors of assorted hues, Come exchange your blues
For His love that you see shining through me

Bm E A D C#m Bm
We are His daughters and sons
Bm E A A / Bb / C
We are the colorful ones
C G D
We are the kids of the King
Bm E A
Rejoice in everything

My colors grow so dim, When I start to fall away from Him
But up comes the strongest wind
That He sends to blow me back into his arms again
And then the colors fall around my feet, Over those I meet
Changing all the gray that I see
Rainbow colors of the Risen Son
Reflect the One
The One who came to set us all free

We are His daughters and sons
We are the colorful ones
We are the kids of the King
Rejoice in everything

We are like windows
Stained with colors of the rainbow
No longer set in a darkened room
Cause the bridegroom wants to shine from you
No longer set in a darkened room
Cause the bridegroom wants to shine from you
Track Name: From Here I Can See
D / F# / G7 / E

From here I can see
all creation redeemed, Giving you Glory!
From this moment on
all our hearts will join the song, Giving you Glory!

All the sinners start to sing: “Christ the Lord is our King”
All the hungry people say: “Christ the Lord is risen today!”
All around the world, hearts are open, graves fall open wide
The body that was broken once again has come to life

From here I can see
that I have a part in this redeeming story!
You have brought me to life,
now it’s time for us to bring your light into the world and… [Chorus]
