I see the sunrise in the horizon It’s a welcome sight for this wayward soul I’ve been driving through them dark nights But now I’m coming home If home is where the heart is Then you’ve always had mine from the start I don’t wanna live a moment longer Apart I see smoke rise up in my rearview Clouding up them Alberta skies It’s from the trials by fire that I’ve been through But somehow I’ve survived – somehow If home is where the heart is Then you’ve always had mine from the start I don’t wanna live a moment longer Apart I smell sweet grass and canola It conjures up days of innocence Like riding to the Creamery down on Main Street When we were kids If home is where the heart is Then you’ve always had mine from the start I don’t wanna live a moment longer Apart

I’ll pack my bags and leave this town Say goodbye to my Ma and Pa To start a life in a foreign land With the one I love Years from now we’ll be sittin’ in the kitchen Talkin’ over coffee While playin’ footsies down below As we grow old we’ll still kiss each other softly Play games in the bed sheets Bound in a love unbreakable She walks with grace and speaks in song She laughs with joy at the time to come I asked her folks for her marriage hand She’s the one I love Years from now we’ll be sittin’ in the kitchen Talkin’ over coffee While playin’ footsies down below As we grow old we’ll still kiss each other softly Play games in the bed sheets Bound in a love unbreakable Storms will come Winds will blow But our love will always grow Years from now we’ll be sittin’ in the kitchen Talkin’ over coffee While playin’ footsies down below As we grow old we’ll still kiss each other softly Play games in the bed sheets Bound in a love unbreakable

My days, like lonely shadows Are cast across this land I wither away like the prairie grass My soul cries out in anguish My bones in agony Oh life me merciful to me Hemel kom en neem me van de aarde I lay awake in the night Tortured by my fears Drowning in a flood of tears I’m a smouldering wick A bruised and battered reed Oh Lord deliver me Hemel kom en neem me van de aarde Jezus kom en red mij van mijzelf Jezus kom en red mij van mijzelf Yahweh has heard my cries for help He will not let me down

I can smell the coffee perking on the stove Gosh it’s good to be home And the sound of kids out playing the yard Warms these old bones Time, stand still I can never get my fill Time, stand still In the morning when our house comes alive But you’re still snoring So honey, I’ll just watch and smile and sigh I’ve been missing you each night As I turn out the lights In this smoky motel room I’ll just stare up at the roof Count water stains for a while And dream about you Time, stand still I can never get my fill Time, stand still In the morning, when our house comes alive But you’re still snoring So honey, I’ll just watch and smile and sigh When our house comes alive I’ll just watch and smile When our house comes alive I’ll just watch and smile and sigh

Thief (AV) 02:49
I’ve heard it said he came as a man Flesh and bones, water sand But all the while, deity Son of man, King of kings They said he grew in favor with God and man in all he did Then one day he left home To take his place and claim his throne Who is this man? What did he claim? There’s hope for a people Who call on his name They say he taught with authority The likes of which they’d never seen Filled with power in word and deed He stills the heart and calms the seas From Jerusalem on up to Calvary He walked the road prepared for me Does no one else see the irony? A carpenter hung from a tree Who is this man? What did he claim? There’s hope for a people Who call on his name He said he could forgive my sins I look at him; I look at him Beside me Upon a tree Beside me I am the thief

Be gentle with me, I’ll be gentle with you We had a good thing, now it’s clear that we’re through You’ll go your way, I’ll go my way, it’s true We’ll be fine Be gentle with him, I’ll be gentle with her It’s been a few years; we’re not the kids we once were You left for college, I worked the family farm We’ll be fine Be gentle with yours, I’ll be gentle with mine Heard you had twin boys, I’ve got a daughter who’s five One day they’ll leave us, they’ll grow up right over night We’ll be fine ‘Cause the promise we made that day Was to love for the rest of our lives You’ll be, I’ll be, They’ll be We’ll be fine
