Track Name: Everything Is Humbling (The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom)
rain down on my face, on my shoulders
it's getting colder
but i’ve been walking on a sleeping volcano
and the fire’s inside
the fire’s inside
the fire’s inside

lately i’ve been feeling like everything is humbling
and i’m so small in its shade
driving through the desert
man, everything is humbling
if its fear, then i want to be afraid

oh God let me cry all these tears that
You provoke with all Your beauty
damn it hurts me like an ocean
but the well’s run dry
the well’s run dry
the well’s run dry

lately i’ve been feeling like everything is humbling
and i’m so small in its shade
driving through the desert
man, everything is humbling
if its fear, then i want to be afraid

You sought my heart out
i cannot forget You
i will not forget You
Track Name: Do I Make You Proud?
oh the house is the home
of my heart of the park
of the road where we lived
of the weeds and the gifts

and the horses in the meadow
weren’t real but were true
and the orphans weren’t orphans
they were me and they were you

and the doorway we would come to
when the sky was getting dark
had a mother in the kitchen
and her love in our hearts

and our father at the table
would bow his eyes and his head
with a prayer so much more
than just a blessing for the bread

do i make you proud?

and the windows were open
every winter, every fall
and we’d dress in father’s flannels
from his closet down the hall

and the bridges were the temples
where we bathed with no regret
and the neighbors built a fire
and invited us to rest

and my sisters heaven bless them
if we ever got along
i will love you i will hurt you
i will write for you this song

you’re the laughter in my heart
and you’re the ones who made me brave
you’re the christmas carol singers
when we forgot the words on stage

do i make you proud?

and its hard when you feel
that the best you can give
from these miles away
is a card or a wish

and you grew by side
you were the water turned to wine
you’re the blanket on the rooftop
when we’d watch the stars at night

i’ll never leave you nor forsake you
i’ll never write i’ll never call
you’re joy and you’re the tears
you are the writing on the wall

do i make you proud?
