Shovel Song #14: Right Hand

PSALM 16: Grove City College Students, Grove City, PA, 4.25.13

*This was a surprise because it came out so hymn-like. Sometimes a song comes along that I literally can’t believe how good it turns out…and just in an hour or so of work. These students were so talented and so fun to work with – go Grove City!

capo V: G-C-G-D

LYRICS:
Because He is at my right hand
I shall not be shaken
Because He is my rock and refuge
I shall be kept safe

Tho I rush to other gods
Bring troubles on myself
May I not partake in them
Forsake such heav’nly wealth

Your cup and portion satisfy
In You is all I need
I taste and see that You are good
Your grace abounds in me

Shovel Song #13: I Won’t Be Shaken

PSALM 16: A group of worship leaders, Eugene, OR, 4.7.13

*My friend Mitch Lee in Eugene is a guy who knows and connects well with lots of people…they’re always amazing folk too and it’s always a blessing to hang with his group of friends. He called a group over for a writing session one of the mornings I was in town on tour and this lovely song was the result…

LYRICS:
1.
Keep me safe Oh God
You are my refuge
All the good I hold
It all comes from you
(repeat all)
I won’t be shaken (4x)

2.
Therefore my heart is glad
My tongue rejoices
My soul, it rests secure…in
Your endless love
(repeat all)
I won’t be shaken (4x)

Br.
Oh you have set, me on, your path of life
I will be filled, with joy, with you by my side

WRITERS: Johanna Dahl, Aria Lee, Colby Halderman, Corey Jackson, Mitch Lee, and Aaron Strumpel.


Shovel Song #12: All the Ends of the Earth

PSALM 22: A mix of local worship leaders, San Luis Obispo, CA – 3.29.2013

*My friend John Luomo gathered some friends and local worship leaders for a beautiful (and windy) day of writing together, then supping and finally a concert to top it off in the backyard! My apologies for the audio, we only captured the sound from a video camera and it suffers…it’s such a wonderful song tho, I hope you can listen and read/sing the lyrics along!

LYRICS:
Ch. Em-C-G-D
All the ends of the earth (2x)
Shall remember
All the ends of the earth (2x)
Shall turn to you

V1 Em-C-G-D
It’s impossible to ignore you
Your words are burned into the Land
Inconceivable to not see you
The stars are lifted by your hand

V2 Em-C-G-D
It’s impossible to run from you
You are everywhere I go
Inconceivable to hide from you
I will never be alone (You’re everywhere I go)

C-G
There’s no one else I’ll follow
There’s no one else but you… C-G-Em-D/F#-G

WRITERS: Nick Bilich, Michael Rans, James Rey, Daniel Rey, Joshua Kessler, Andy Garcia, John Luoma, Cameron Schenk, Aaron Strumpel, and *If I missed getting some names after the session, let me know so I can add them in!
