Amazing Grace

Amazing grace!
How sweet the sound
that saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost,
but now am found;
was blind, but now I see.

'Twas grace that taught
my heart to fear,
and grace my fears relieved;
how precious did
that grace appear
the hour I first believed.

Through many dangers,
toils, and snares,
I have already come;
'tis grace hath brought me
safe thus far,
and grace will lead me home.

The Lord has promised
good to me,
his word my hope secures;
he will my shield
and portion be,
as long as life endures.

Yea, when this flesh
and heart shall fail,
and mortal life shall cease,
I shall possess,
within the veil,
a life of joy and peace.

When we've been there
ten thousand years,
bright shining as the sun,
we've no less days
to sing God's praise
than when we first begun.

Words by John Newton (1723-1807)
Tune: "New Britain" (traditional)

There is a balm in Gilead

There is a balm in Gilead
To make the wounded whole;
There is a balm in Gilead
To heal the sin-sick soul.

Some times I feel discouraged,
And think my work’s in vain,
But then the Holy Spirit
Revives my soul again.

CHORUS:
If you cannot preach like Peter,
If you cannot pray like Paul,
Just tell the love of Jesus,
And say He died for all.

Lyrics and Tune:
Traditional African-American spiritual.

Be Thou My Vision

Be thou my vision,
O Lord of my heart,
be all else but naught to me,
save that thou art;
be thou my best thought
in the day and the night, both waking and sleeping,
thy presence my light.

Be thou my wisdom,
be thou my true word,
be thou ever with me,
and I with thee Lord;
be thou my great Father,
and I thy true son;
be thou in me dwelling,
and I with thee one.

Be thou my breastplate,
my sword for the fight;
be thou my whole armor,
be thou my true might;
be thou my soul's shelter,
be thou my strong tower:
O raise thou me heavenward,
great Power of my power.

Riches I heed not,
nor man's empty praise:
be thou mine inheritance
now and always;
be thou and thou only
the first in my heart; O Sovereign of heaven,
my treasure thou art.

High King of heaven,
thou heaven's bright sun,
O grant me its joys
after victory is won;
great Heart of my own heart,
whatever befall,
still be thou my vision,
O Ruler of all.

English versification
by Eleanor Hull (1912).

Translated from the original
Old Irish, by Mary Byrne (1905)

The original Old Irish text,
Rop tú mo Baile
is often attributed to
Dallan Forgaill in the 6th Century.

ABOUT the Cover Art:

Faith Mountain CD features cover art by Brad's mother, Dorothy Powell, who at 93 years young, is an active painter in her community of Anacortes, Washington. Dorothy began painting at the age of 57, after her husband, Hayward (Brad's dad), passed away. She has won "Best of Show" and many other honors in county fair and local art shows, and sold many paintings and notecards featuring her artwork. She's an active member and past-president of Artists Northwest -an association of artists in Northwest Washington.

ABOUT the album title "Faith Mountain" ...

Brad selected the painting (which his mom, Dorothy, had previously painted) for the album cover early on in the recording project. Brad felt the painting beautifully "set the scene" of several of the hymns. Then, inspired by the painting and the grandeaur of its mountain--symbolic of the many mountains referenced in scripture--Brad decided to title the album Faith Mountain. Brad composed the title track Faith Mountain--inspired lyrically by Hebrews chapter 11, on the nature of faith--using the mountain as a metaphor for faith.
