This is the latest single "Surround" from our upcoming worship project. We credit our good friend Felix Chivandire for the inspiration as the lyrics are basically a transcript of a powerful message he preached. Basically when we are broken, we are filled with grace. When are made whole, we are filled with glory. And only a whole vessel can truly contain the glory of God and be useful in His kingdom. We are not just meant to remain perpetually broken.

This is the new sound of the band and if this song resonates with you feel free to be excited because there's more where this came from! We as a band are entering a season of hearing, writing and recording a full-blown "Worship Project" for which we are budgeting anywhere between $15,000 and $20,000. You can certainly purchase the song at the minimum of $.20 (without hurting our feelings) but if you feel lead to help with this project consider the "name-your-own-price" option as a donation. BTW this may seem like a large number but we have seen God do some crazy things through the years. (this link will take you away from this page)



Verse 1
In my brokenness I have found
That Your grace surrounds
In my weakness and when I am bound
Lord Your grace surrounds

It Surrounds me
It Surrounds me
It Surrounds me
Lord Your grace surrounds

Verse 2
And when I'm made whole I have found
That your glory surrounds
Standing in this place on holy ground, Lord
Let Your glory surround

Surround me
Surround me
Surround me
Let your glory surround

Verse 3
Let Your glory shine all around
As Your kingdom comes down
All I do is for Your names renown, Lord
Let Your kingdom come down

Come down
Come down
Come down
Let Your kingdom come down
