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.

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

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

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

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

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]
