Psalm 22

Psalm 22
Words & Music by Cameron Gray © 2017 Rough Harbor Music

My God, my God,
Why have you forsaken me?
My God, my God,
Darkness overtaking me
My God, my God,
Dried up like shards of clay,
Poured out in tears by night,
Melted like wax by day

My God, my God,
Calling from the lion’s mouth,
My God, my God,
Scoffers mock and thieves surround,
My God, my God,
Saints before have trusted You,
But You have left me here,
And I am piercéd through

Oh God, my God, my—

My God, my God,
Why are You so far from me?
My God, my God,
Why have You abandoned me?
My God, my God,
You raised me from my mother’s womb
Now raise me up again,
Up from my lonesome tomb

Oh God, my God, my God, my God, my God.

A Refuge Strong And Sure (Psalter 46)

A Refuge Strong And Sure (Psalter 46)
Words: Psalter 46, God Is Our Refuge And Our Strength, arr Cameron Gray, 2015. Music: Cameron Gray ©2015 Rough Harbor Music

Be still and know that I am God
O’er all exalted high,
The subject nations of the earth
My Name shall magnify;
The Lord of Hosts is on our side,
Our safety to secure,
The God of Jacob is for us
A refuge strong and sure

REFRAIN:
I will be still,
I will be still

God is our refuge and our strength,
Our ever-present aid,
And therefore though the earth remove
We will not be afraid;
Though hills amidst the seas be cast,
Though foaming waters roar,
Yea, though the mighty billows shake
The mountains on the shore
(REFRAIN)

The nations raged, the kingdoms moved,
But when His voice was heard,
The troubled earth was stilled to peace,
Before His mighty word;
The Lord of Hosts is on our side,
Our safety to secure,
The God of Jacob is for us
A refuge strong and sure

The Lord of Hosts is on our side
Our safety to secure
The God of Jacob is for us
A refuge strong and sure
(REFRAIN)

—–

A river flows whose steams make glad
The city of our God,
The holy place wherein the Lord
Most high has His abode;
Since God is in the midst of her
Unmoved her walls shall stand,
For God will be her early help
When trouble is at hand

Scripture:
Psalm 46

Just Like You Are
©2007 Words & Music by Cameron Gray

I am missing your smile babe
Your smile is far away
Call you up on the telephone
Just to say
Don’t forget that I love your smile
Like honey to the bee
That’s just like you are to me.

I am missing your voice babe
Your voice is far away
Call you up on the telephone
Just to say
Don’t forget that I love your voice
Like sugar to my tea
That’s just like you are to me.

I am missing your moves babe
Your moves are far away
Call you up on the telephone
Just to say
Don’t forget that I love your moves
A precious commodity
That’s just like you are—

Don’t go so far away
Don’t go so far away

I am missing your love babe
Your love is far away
Call you up on the telephone
Just to say
Don’t forget that I love your love
Like water to the sea
That’s just like you are
That’s just like you are
That’s just like you are to me.

Old Fashioned Lullabye
©2007 Words & Music by Cameron Gray

Slow summer nights and old fashioned lullabyes
Underneath a blue, blue moon,
Voices in union, a sweet perfume,
Holdin on like a juniper root,
Feelin fine, just to know you’re mine.

Standing shoulder to shoulder, arm-in-arm to uphold
The strength of our love—just you and me up against the world.
Looking forward to getting older,
The warmth we share won’t never, never, never grow colder,
I’m gonna love you til the day I die.

So bring on those days of slow change, those years of age,
I’m falling for you like a fool, like when my youth was young,
Let’s make a melody of you and I,
Making love in sweet slow time,
Like an old fashioned lullabye.

I went dreaming last night, of a lullabye,
Dreaming…
Dreaming last night, of a lullabye,
You were there, just dreaming by my side,
And we went dreaming all through the night.

Dreaming of those days of slow change, those years of age,
I’m falling for you like a fool, like when my youth was young,
Let’s make a melody of you and I,
Making love in sweet slow time,
Like an old fashioned lullabye.

Time gonna change us, take liberties outrageous,
Make mockery of vanity and pride,
Oh but love lingers on,
Young and strong.

So bring on those days of slow change, those years of age,
And someday, baby when all our youth is gone
We can look back upon the melody of you and I
Making love to last all our lives,
Like an old fashioned lullabye.

Way Back Home
©2007 Words & Music by Cameron Gray

I’ve seen the stars in your eyes
We’ve slept out under a sky-blue sky
We’ve heard the sound of angels all around
And we know the way back home.

We’ve drunk a taste of the sea
We’ve painted purple mountain majesty
I’ve whistled a tune with you beneath the moon
And we know the way back home.

Oh, ain’t it hard
Learning how live with love
Is bound to break your heart
Don’t be afraid
Don’t give up, don’t give in
Don’t be ashamed
Let’s bring a little bit of heaven to this side of Revelation

I’ve seen the stars in your eyes
That steady constellation has been my guide
And with you by my side, I know that I know
We know the way back
We know the way back
We know the way back home
