Awe Lyrics

Daylight breaks
I'm back again
There are no secrets here
Take Your place
Here I stand
In perfect fear

I will be holding out my hands
I will be holding out my hands

Surrounding
The weight of Your name
So astounding
The strength of Your arms
Spirit falling
Speaking again
I am listening

I stand in awe
I stand in awe
The Spirit in this place
Your presence
So amazing
I stand in awe

Surrounding
The weight of Your name
So astounding
The strength of Your arms
Spirit falling
Move me again
I am listening

I stand in awe
I stand in awe

Music- Phil Joel, Phillip LaRue / Lyrics- Phil Joel,Heather Joel

Song Description:
"Worship and being in God's presence is so much more than a Sunday experience. I have a special place where I go to worship, to sing, to speak out loud and to listen to the Lord. This song was found in that place." - Phil Joel

Burning Down Lyrics

I know what I've been told
And I know there's flaws in my thinking
Threatening the things I hold
So tight
Still this is my only hope
This is the way to freedom
Cause You are not so concerned with my justice
You let go of Your rights

You expect the same from me
To let the ones who wronged me go free

The burning down of me
This is the cross I see
No other way for me
The burning down of me
This is the grace we have known
The mercy we're shown
The truth, the way
Where life begins again

No greater love can a man show
Than to lay down his life for a another
Even if the other will never know

You're challenging all that I think I deserve
Challenging the ways that I handle my hurt
Cause it's you who shoulders the blame
I'll remember

The burning down of me
This is the cross I see
No other way for me
The burning down of me
This is the grace we have known
The mercy we're shown
The truth, the way
Where life begins again

Music - Phil Joel, John Boyd / Lyrics - Phil Joel

Song Description:
"This song still makes me teary-eyed because it was written and recorded during a time when I was hurting. The Lord wanted to give Heather and I a deeper understanding of the cross. Christ's example of forgiveness is huge, messy, and doesn't make sense when measured by my own standard of justice. God's way of forgiveness means humility, self-sacrifice, laying down my own rights, and being silent when all I want to do is yell at the top of my lungs how I've been wronged. To absorb the pain and guilt of someone else's wrong is tough, but it's right. This is how Christ has dealt with all the ways I have wronged Him, and this is how I must respond to those who wrong me. It's the only way to freedom." - Phil Joel

Desperate Lyrics

Lord, thank You for these days
Lord, thank You for these days
This has been the most trying year
Of testing and refining here
And I wouldn't have it any other way
Lord, thank You for these days
And I will always choose to praise You

Lord, thank You for this place
Lord, thank You for Your grace
There is mercy in the midst of tests
An oasis in this wilderness
And Your light to lead my way
Lord, thank You for this place
And I will always choose to praise You

And I wanna stay
Desperate
I will remain
Desperate
For You

Lord I thank You for this rain
Healing waters when there's pain
There are rivers of Your providence
Surrounding our obedience
In Your faithfulness, I put my faith
So Lord I thank You for this rain
And I will always choose to praise You

I wanna stay
Desperate
I will remain
Desperate
For You

Oh Jesus
For You Holy Spirit
For You O' my Father
For You, for You
All my days I'll sing Your praises

Music - Phil Joel / Lyrics - Phil Joel, Dale Evrist

Song Description:
Ps 119:145-149

"I don't want to sound like a cry baby, but last year was tough. There were so many challenges. Some of it was the Lord's hand refining, and some of it was blatant opposition. Either way, it pushed me to a place of desperation and dependence on God. And that's where I want to stay." - Phil Joel

Drainpipe Lyrics

I watched you climbing
From the window of your house
Down the drainpipe to the lawn
The rain was falling hard
Upon your face you turned
You were crying but I couldn't tell

Safety was no longer
Within the confines
Of your walls
Maybe it would be better to run away

Prodigal
Where do you go
When you go prodigal
Come home

I see you keep moving
But the concrete's setting
Hard around your heart
We both smile and say "hey"
So near and yet so far away

And so we talk awhile
N' while we talk you drift away
Standing there
You were crying but I couldn't tell

Prodigal
Where do you go
When you go prodigal
Come home
Come home now

Music & lyrics by Phil Joel, Heather Joel

Song Description:
"Heather and I wrote this song a long time ago, but it never got finished. It's a simple song with a message that can be as simple or as complicated as you want. The song asks the question "where do you go when you go prodigal?" I think it's an important thing to ask ourselves." - Phil Joel

Drown Lyrics

Drown tonight
All this noise inside
Holy Spirit won't you speak
I will be silent
I will be

I've been wrong before
By giving you the run around
And I can't stand the thought
Of letting go the upper hand
I'm feeling crowded
Don't want to be in this place
It's getting way too loud in here

Drown tonight
All this noise inside
Holy Spirit won't you speak
I will be silent

Take this heart of mine
Turn it to the divine
Break distractions
I will learn the sound of silence

So much static
In the rumors of a world of compromise
Always a little bit of truth
Disguising every good lie
Those poison lullabies
So out of tune
Yet they sound so right?
No, no!

Drown tonight
All this noise inside
Holy Spirit won't you speak
I will be silent

Take this heart of mine
Turn it to the divine
Break distractions
I will learn the sound of silence

Tonight
I will be still
And know You're God
I will be still and know You
I will be still and know You're God
Push this white noise down
I will be silent

Drown my worldly distractions
And the calls to comfort and self satisfaction
When the world threatens the peace
That surpasses all understanding now
I will be still and know You are God

Music and lyrics by Phil Joel, Phillip LaRue

Song Description:
"A few years back, I had my hearing tested. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that after many years of loud stages and amplifiers my hearing was still 100%. As a parting gift, and maybe a sly precautionary gesture, the doctor gave me some earplugs. I started to use them at different times throughout the day. It wasn't until I began to seek out stillness and quiet that I realized how noisy and full of distractions my life had become. Listening (to the Lord) is a whole lot easier when the noise is drowned." - Phil Joel

Jealous Lyrics

Come to me
Come to me
I have been waiting
The sun will be rising

Come to me
Come to me
I have a ring for your finger
Don't let the past come between us

Don't you run to the arms of another
They won't love you like I can love you
Don't you know I am a jealous God
I am a jealous God
So, come to me

Come to me
When you're not sure how you feel
When the idols start calling
And to their arms you're falling

Don't you run to the arms of another
I will hold you I am able
To lead you beside the still and living waters
I've set a feast upon the table
Oh, I am a jealous Lover
No one can love you like I love you
So come to me

Come to Me
Come to Me

Where are you, My beloved?
My beloved, where are you?

When You came looking for me
I thought it was over
I thought we were history
And all I could think about
Was how I let You down
Oh, how I'd let You down

My heart has played the harlot
And wandered far from home
Like a ship without an anchor
Drifting on it's own
And You came calling
Always calling

And down to the altar I go
All alone, together
And now on this altar I fall
Abandoned, surrendered, yielded
I am Yours!
I am Yours!!

All to Jesus I surrender
All to You I will freely Give
Abandoned, surrendered, yielded

And down to the altar I go
All alone, together
And now on this altar I fall
Abandoned, surrendered, yielded
I am Yours

Music - Phil Joel / Lyrics - Phil Joel, Dale Evrist

Song Description:
"Hmmm, where do I start? This was the first song we began recording but the last to be finished. It took a long time because I wasn't sure how to get it out and recorded the right way. I wanted it to feel like an epic with a sense of journey but not in an orchestral perfectly mapped out way. It needed to be broken, and a bit messy, but with beauty and simplicity. It's my story and hopefully it's yours too. It's the tale of the prodigal son retold through our own lives. It's the story of a Father wanting His kids back. It's a story with an innocent beginning where tragedy breaks in and destroys the scene. It's how the Father went to great lengths to see His family reunited and back in communion.

If there's one song I want people to hear it's this one." - Phil Joel

Ordinary Day Lyrics

I forget myself with You
You draw near to me as I draw near to You
There is beauty in the way You move
And I will always rise to meet You
I hear You calling me
How You sing so beautifully

Never an ordinary day with You
There is never an ordinary day
To be woken from a slumber
To see the grey turn to wonderful
There is never an ordinary day

I forget myself with You
I won't hold back
When I'm wanting to
You bring me to my sense
Speaking truth to me
I hear You calling me
You sing so beautifully

Never an ordinary day with You
There is never an ordinary day
To be woken from a slumber
To see the grey turn to wonderful
There is never an ordinary day

Music & Lyrics by Phil Joel

Song Description:
"I can't help but keep coming back to the whole quiet-time thing. There are mornings when my body doesn't want me to seek God and spend that special time with Him. But I know myself, and I think I'm getting better at knowing what I need and what I don't need. Immersing myself in God's love and yielding to Him is one thing I most definitely need. When I go to God for love and acceptance then I don't find myself filling the day trying to get those things from other places. Make sense?" - Phil Joel

Return Lyrics

It feels like we just started
It all begins today
To be a victor
Not a victim unguarded
Nothing 'round here
Looks quite the same
Though the scars remain

CHORUS:
You have been so good to me
And I will return
You have been so good to me
And everyday
I will return

You know we are the targets
The lions are outside
You and me they want
They must be denied
Still falling those fingers
Are the grains of sand
You call it my pride
Will we flee tonight
Or will I fight by Your side?

I will seek You all of my days
Everyday I'll return again
I will rise to seek Your face
Everyday I will return again

Time Alone Lyrics

It's all coming back to this
Where have I been
I've been sorely missing
Out on my own
See the enemy fire
Fall around my head

It's all coming back to this
And I know Your plan
Face to face communion
The promise still stands
My heart is in Your hands

There You go
Like the call of home
That voice I know
Leading on

Time alone with You
After everything we've been through
After everything we've seen
Time alone with you
It's where you open Your heart to me

Its all coming back to this
The place I've found
I've been looking forward
To being around You and Your words spoken
How beautiful they are

There You go
Like the call of home
That voice I know
Leading on

Time alone with You
After everything we've been through
After everything we've seen
Time alone with you
It's where You unfold your mystery

I'll keep getting to know You
The vow will not be broken
There's always so much more
And I still need

Time alone with You
After everything we've been through
After everything we've seen
Time alone with you
It's where You unfold your mystery
I still need
Time alone with You
After everything we've been through
After everything we've seen
Time alone with you
It's where you open Your heart to me

It's all coming back to this

Music- Phil Joel / Lyrics- Phil Joel, Dale Evrist

Song Description:
"I wrote and recorded this CD in my garage behind my house. I wanted to lock Nashville out and open the doors wide to family and friends but most importantly to God. And this was the result.
