Track Name: Empty
I.
Oh, Mary why have you come?
Come drop your oils and run –
you'll find no one, find no one.

II.
Oh, Thomas can't you see?
Where bone and sinew meet,
you'll find a hole (find a whole).

III.
Oh, Saul look down at your hands,
all red and dripping in the sand –
it's the wrong blood, the wrong blood.

Come find the blood, of the son.
Track Name: Meribah
I.
I took a staff down from your hand
gripped if firm gripped it hard in my demand

I struck a rock and water gushed into the land
though this never was Your plan

And Meribah took on its fame
a quarrelsome people now proclaim

we didn't trust your holy name
still the water came –

Oh, you are our God – oh, Spirit lead us on!

II.
You spoke to me when serpents came
Forge a snake, build a stake, set it straight
up in the air for all to see
simply look and you'll be free –

Oh, you are our God – oh, Spirit lead us on!

III.
You taught me how to walk and stand
gave me life, manna in the sand
still I will only see the edge of a land
that you promised Abraham –

Oh, you are our God – oh, Spirit lead us on!
Track Name: Rise
I.

Fear not, for I am with you till the end.
I've called you by name –
you are mine.

When the river’s at your door,
I'll hold you as before
till the fires and storms are no more,

and you will rise.


II.

Fear not, for I am with you till the end.
I'll bring your children
back to you –

I'll gather from the East, I'll gather from the West
I'll gather from the North, and from the South.
They're coming from afar back to you,

and you will rise.


III.

Rise and rise again until lions turn to lambs.
Track Name: Down by the River
I.
Oh, sisters lets go down, let’s go down –
won't you come on down? Oh, sisters lets go down.

Oh, brothers lets go down, let’s go down –
won't you come on down? Oh, brothers lets go down –

down by the river to pray.

II.
Down by the river we'll pray all day.
We'll pray all day till our hearts are changed

Deep in the water we'll bathe all day, down covered by the blood
till the mud's washed away.

and over by the tree we'll sit in the shade,
reading tiny paper books, as our minds are shaped.

III.
Oh, mothers lets go down, let’s go down –
won't you come on down? Oh, mothers let’s go down.

Oh, fathers let’s go down, let’s go down –
won't you come on down? Oh, fathers let’s go down –

down by the river to pray

IV.
Oh, sinners let’s go down, let’s go down –
won't you come on down? Oh, sinners let’s go down –

A Holiday at the water’s edge
with the one raised up from the dead –

A Holiday at the water’s edge.
