Ben This album seems to be aimed at kids but it's fine for adults too! It's a good, positive way to remember some Bible principles. Favorite track: Open Our Eyes (feat. Sandra McCracken).

Kyle Grindley I love the truth and simplicity of the lyrics paired with melodies and arrangements that are accessible but not silly. So much childrens music is so saccharine as to be unlistenable, but I don't grow tired of this. I listen at work as well as with my daughter. Favorite track: Good Fruit (feat. Katy Bowser).

Open up our ears to listen Open up our eyes to see Plant the seed of understanding Grow it up like the tallest tree Open up our ears to listen Open up our eyes to see Plant the seed of understanding Grow it up like the tallest tree Pull the blinds Open wide all the windows Fill our hearts with the light of your truth

Everyone who hears these words of mine and does them He will be like the wise man Everyone who hears these words of mine and does them He will be like the wise man Who builds his house on the rock Who builds his house on the rock And the rain fell down And the floods came high And the wind blew all around But the house stood tall built up on solid ground Everyone who hears my words and does not do them He will be like a foolish man Everyone who hears my words and does not do them He will be like the foolish man Who builds his house on the sand Who built his house on the sand And the rain fell down And the floods came high And the wind blew all around And the house fell down that was built on sinking sand Everyone who hears these words of mine and does them He will be like the wise man Everyone who hears these words of mine and does them He will be like the wise man Who built his house on the rock Who built his house on the rock And the rain fell down And the floods came high And the wind blew all around But the house stood tall built up on solid ground And won't stand built up on sinking sand Oh, the house stood tall built up on solid ground

See the birds who are singing in the spring air? They’re given everything they need They don’t worry where their next meal will come from They don’t worry ‘bout a thing Chorus So just, look around you and try to listen to The song creation sings And don’t you worry cause you’re in the hands Of the God who made everything See the flowers in their colorful beauty They’re dressed better than a king They don’t worry about what they should wear, no They don’t worry ‘bout a thing Chorus Because you’re not a bird and you’re not a flower You don’t have petals or wings But there is good news, you’re worth so much more To the God who made everything. So when you worry ‘bout today or tomorrow And the storms that they might bring Try to remember that you’re in the hands Of the God who made everything Chorus [spoken]: Now just remember - you’re not a bird and you’re not a flower. You don’t have petals or wings. But there is good news, ‘cause you’re worth so much more to the God who made everything.

Leaven Bread 02:32
I wanna tell you another story All about a woman making barley bread Flour and water out on the table “We need a little leaven,” she said So, she works , she works, she works to mix the leaven into the flour She works, she works She works to make the barley bread Mama, mama, how much longer? How much longer for the dough to rise Oh my children, don’t you worry We just gotta wait till the time is right So they wait, they wait They wait while the dough is rising rising So they wait, they wait They wait for the barley bread This is a story of the Kingdom of Heaven This is what the storyteller Jesus said The kingdom of Heaven is just like the leaven That worked to raise up that barley bread So we wait, we wait, we wait while the Kingdom's coming coming We wait, we wait, we wait while the Kingdom's coming, coming We wait, we wait, we wait while the Kingdom's coming, coming We wait, we wait, we wait for the Kingdom to come We wait for the Kingdom to come

Come to me Walk with me Learn the rhythms of my grace Come to me I have all you need Learn to rest even while you are awake Are you tired? Are you worried? Worn out from the day? Have you been in a hurry? I will slow the pace.

There once was a mighty King His son was getting married His servants searched the kingdom Oh, calling all the guests to come Oh come, oh come, oh come The feast is ready here for you Oh come, oh come, oh come Come to the table of the Groom None were ready when He called They made excuses and they stalled They told the servant let us be They did not listen to the King Oh come, oh come, oh come The feast is ready here for you Oh come, oh come, oh come Come to the table of the Groom {Go out into the city streets and alleys Collect all who look like they need a square meal All the misfits and homeless and wretched you can find and bring them here The servant said, "Sir, I did what you commanded and there's still room." The Master said, "Then go out to the country roads; whoever you find drag them in. I want my house full!"} They found everyone they could The poor the humble bad and good But there was still room to spare The King said, "Fill these empty chairs!" Oh come, oh come, oh come The feast is ready here for you Oh come, oh come, oh come Come to the table of the Groom Oh come, oh come Come to the table of the Groom Come to the table of the Groom

If you held a mustard seed in your hand You’d see that it was tiny, like a grain of sand But Jesus says that even when our faith is small Nothing is impossible for Him at all Nothing is impossible for Him at all ‘Cause our God is faithful He can move mountains And He asks us to believe Our God is faithful He can move mountains Even when our faith is like a mustard seed Even when our faith is like a mustard seed Oh oh oh , oh oh oh Oh oh oh, oh oh oh

Say you had a hundred sheep and one little lamb got lost in the dark, in the cold, far away from the fold What would you do? What would you do? You’d say go get the lost one And leave the ninety-nine That little lamb is lost And that little lamb is mine Bring it home on your shoulders And call up all your friends Rejoice with me, I’ve got my little lamb again. Rejoice with me, I’ve got my little lamb again. Say you had ten silver coins And one silver coin got lost Your treasure, your wealth In the cracks, in the filth What would you do? What would you do? You’d say go get the lost one Turn the house upside down That silver coin was lost And that silver coin is found Light the lamp, sweep the ground Then call up all your friends Rejoice with me, I’ve got my silver coin again. Rejoice with me, I’ve got my silver coin again. If God had a child Who wandered far astray Who was sad, broken hearted, whose guilt kept him away What would He do? What would He do? He’d say, go get the lost one He’s who I came to see. He thought he was an orphan But he’s coming home with me. The angels are rejoicing. The sinner is my friend. Rejoice with me, my child is coming home again. The angels are rejoicing. The sinner is my friend. Rejoice with me, my child is coming home again.

Our Father in heaven, Reveal who you are. Set the world right; Do what is best— as above, so below. Keep us alive with three square meals. Keep us safe from the Devil and ourselves. Keep us forgiven with you and forgiving others. You are in charge! You can do anything! You are beautiful! You are in charge! You can do anything! You are beautiful! Amen.
