This project was such an amazing opportunity for growth...both personally and musically. I was stretched and awakened and had a blast in the process!

Thank you God for giving me a desire for music in my life!

To my hubbie, Steve: Thank you so much for giving me the freedom to spend hours at the studio. Thank you for your never-ending belief in me and for all your encouragement. Thank you to my girls, Jasmin and Jade and the rest of my family (Syn, Jimmy, Benj, Sar, Bri and BJ) for your support and love.

Adam Rideout-Arkell: This could never have happened without you! Thank you for sharing your talent, expertise and experience with me. Thank you for building me up and pushing me. Thank you for your hours (and hours and hours and hours) of dedication to this process. I'm blessed to call you my friend. (Thanks for sharing him Christine!)

Kevin Rogers: Part of this lands at your door my friend. If you had never asked me to lead worship or be involved in a songwriting circle, maybe none of this would have happened. Thank you for challenging me and dragging me out from behind the curtain on the side of the NSC stage.

And to my parents Gary and Sherrill Kivell: I would not be here without you! Thank you for filling my life with music...even when I did not think I wanted it! Thank you for your support - financial, emotional and spiritual. I could go on and on but I will just say, I love you!

Track Name: Snow In April
I am surprised, By Your love
Like snow in April
Falling, it covers me, Like Your love
Snow in April

Fleeting, moments of joy, gone again
Like snow in April
Promises, broken once more, Friends vanish
Like snow in April

Mercy, washes white, Spotless, pure
Your embrace, Gives me new life
Surrounding me, Like snow in April

Love, never-ending Your love, infinite
Love, never-ending Your love, infinite

Gently, drifting, Blankets everything
Your love, Takes my breath away
Amazes me, Like snow in April

Love, never-ending Your love, infinite
Love, never-ending Your love, infinite
Love, never-ending Your love, infinite
Love, never-ending Your love, infinite
Love, never-ending Your love, infinite
Track Name: No More Circles
No More Circles
Heaviness, crushed and breathless
Too weak to lift my hands
Unanswered questions, full of offenses
Running in circles on a circular path

CHORUS
Jesus, be my breath, life filled with Your scent
Jesus, be my strength, the force of Your love
Jesus, be my peace, the only voice I hear
Wanna run into Your arms...straight into Your arms

Vrs. 2
Your embrace leaves me a little stronger
Restored; hands reach for Yours
Eternity offered, quenched thirst for knowledge
Run into Your arms...into Your arms

Chorus

Bridge:
No more circles by myself
I only need to give it up
You’re right beside me
Blind eyes see!
No more circles
I am free
Track Name: You Will Come
YOU WILL COME
Vrs. 1

Sinking silently again,
No one sees the fight I’m in
This dark gives comfort to my pain
Ooooh, I need to breathe

Chorus:
Your strong arms will carry me
And your breath will give me life
Your love will rescue me
You’re gonna come for me
You will come for me

Vrs. 2

When I cry out day or night, only silence answers me
Can you patch this shipwrecked life
Oooooh, Make me believe


Chorus
Your strong arms will carry me
And your breath will give me life
Your love will rescue me
You’re gonna come for me
You will come for me

Bridge:
I will look for You, I will trust in You, I will wait for You (REPEAT x 3)
I will wait, I will wait, I will wait for you
And I feel you reach for me
Track Name: Father's Love
Father’s Love
Chorus 1:
You are mine, Precious child,
I love you, just as you are

Chorus 2:
Take my hand, walk with me,
I want you, Forever

Vrs. 1
But Father I’m broken, empty and wounded
I have nothing to give you Am I enough?

Chorus 1
You are mine, Precious child,
I love you, just as you are

Vrs. 2
But Father I’ve hurt you, turned my gaze away
You see all my ugly and how I have strayed

Chorus 2a
Take my hand, walk with me,
I want you, Forever


BRIDGE
Cuz you are mine, My life was for you
You are mine, Love me too

Choruses
Track Name: Greener Grass
Greener Grass
Vrs. 1
I say, give me all my riches, I want what I deserve
Don’t wanna be nobody’s slave, Wanna run away from here
The grass is always greener, The grass is always greener

Vrs. 2
I bought all my friends, They loved me ‘til the end of my money
And now I’m in this dirty stinkin’ mess, abandoned and ashamed
The grass is always greener, The grass is always greener

Why are my ears broken, Why do I never learn
In spite of how I hurt You, You let the home fires burn

Vrs. 3
Feeling such a fool, so humiliated
Spurned my Father’s love, for that I must be hated
Humbled by my journey, My eyes are on the ground
I do not see your look of joy, The lost has now been found


Chorus:
Standing at the end of the road, Watching and hoping for me
Waiting on the greener grass, With Your arms stretched wide
And tears running down Your face
Come on home --- Run to Me Come on home, put My robe of love on
Come on home ---- Run to Me Come on home, welcome my child
Track Name: All For Me
All for me You gave up your life
All for me You suffered and died
All for me You came back from the dead
And I live cuz of this to offer me.

I’m overwhelmed by your love, given so free
I’m awed by your sacrifice And that You did it for me
I’m so undeserving, but You call me Your child
Mess after mess after mess that I make
And you still love me

I want to give you my life
I want to lay down my pride
I want to feel your sweet love
Flow out of me
I want to give you my life
I want to lay down my pride
I want to feel your sweet love
Feel your sweet love
Feel your sweet love
Flow out of me

All for You, I want to live my whole life
All for You, I want to see through your eyes
All for You, be your hands and feet
Every breath, that I breathe.
And I live cuz of this to offer me.


All for me You gave up your life
All for me You suffered and died
All for me, I’ll be Your hands and Your feet
Every breath that I breathe
And I live cuz of this to offer me.

Track Name: Sweet Surrender
Sweet Surrender


My faith seems so small,
Is there belief without doubt
My trust has been broken,
Help me to surrender

I need to trust,
I need to believe
I need to let go,
help me to be free,
in this moment.

Chorus:
Giving up all control,
All of my will, all of my pride
Believing that You’re the truth
It all falls away and all I see is You
Sweet surrender

You show me my faith,
You’re there in my doubt
Bandage my trust,
the sweetness of

Chorus
Giving up all control,
All of my will, all of my pride
Believing that You’re the truth
It all falls away and all I see is

Giving up all control,
All of my will, all of my pride
Believing that You’re the truth
It all falls away and all I see is

Giving my life to do,
All of Your will, all that is right
Living into Your truth
It all comes alive and all I see is You

Sweet surrender,
When I give in
Sweet surrender,
I am whole within this moment of
Sweet surrender,
My desire
Sweet surrender,
Grant me peace, to be
