STONE BY STONE

By Eric Fisher

Roses climb the high stone wall in sunlit green.

Thorny branches reaching for the sky

Silhouette soft peddles hide forbidden leaves,

Longing for the touch of gentle skin.

 

Hope the sunlight lingers here for just a little while.

Bracing for the night that’s sure to come.

Bashful flowers open like a hungry heart,

Reaching for the life-blood of the sun

 

Day to day we reach for what we hope is true

Feeding on the warmth of endless love

With dirty open hands that know not what they do

We are clinging to the wall and as we do

Stone by stone we find our way to You

 

All around this garden of the fallen flowers,

Thorny lives are groping at the sky

Clawing at the darkness for the daylight hour,

A beacon burning just beyond our reach

And we grow on….

As we climb on….

And we grow on….

As we climb on….

(and we sing)

STAND

 By Eric Fisher

Too many footprints in the quicksands of time.

A good man takes a fall and another one’s poised to cross that line.

Something just don’t feel right. 

I cannot find sleep tonight.

Everyone overlooks You in the madness of this life.

 

Why can’t they understand? 

How can they think You’re just a man?

Shrug You off and walk away, just let their sin take it’s toll

Well, I can’t say I’m not to blame.  I have denied Your name

I’ve seen the Light and chosen darker hideaways

 

But, I see You hanging there in front of me

I see the love on Your face,

The eyes that embrace the deepest need inside of me

I feel the blood from Your brow form the tears upon my face

I don’t know why I fall, but I know where I stand in You

 

I make my life a mess. Create my own distress

I’m crushed and broken by the troubles of the day

But, You see the sparrow fall. 

And I know Your eyes see all

I fall down at Your feet and give my life away

 

And I see You hanging there in front of me

I see the love on Your face,

The eyes that embrace the deepest need inside of me

I feel the blood from Your brow form the tears upon my face

I don’t know why I fall.  Please God, don’t let me fall

I need Your love most of all. 

You hold my heart in Your hand.

REST EASY

 By Eric Fisher

Feel like my hands are tied.  I must confess that I

I feel like I’ve crossed a line that You’ve drawn in the sand

But You take away my sin, and wash me from within

But still sometimes I wonder if Your grace is wearing thin

Then You say…

 

Rest easy, rest easy, I know your heart

My child, believe me, I know your heart

You know…. I know your heart

 

Sometimes I’m locked in unbelief. 

Sometimes I struggle just to see

The love you give, the love I know that I could live,

If I could only trust you,

If I could only touch you,

If I could be more like you,

If I…  If I…  If I…  If I…..  I know your heart

My child, believe me, I know your heart

You know…. I know your heart

IN MY HEART

By Eric Fisher

Destiny tells me the cold winds will blow.

As we search for the truth to harbor our souls.

There’s a lot of fools waiting, for what they just don’t know.

But, when you come back for me, I’ll be ready to go.

 

Here is my heart.  Your mercy’s my fate.

Brush the dust from my life, and the veil from my face.

I’ve always known right from the start.

Where I’d be without You in my heart.  Without You in my heart.

 

There’s too many rainbows I’ve already chased.

But, I’ve never seen gold at the end like they say.

O, but I have found in You a hope to live everyday.

I’m free from the past.  My new life begins today.

 

We all want to know what the future will be

Take a hold of His hand, and step into eternity.

HUMBLED

By Eric Fisher

They brought her to this man, threw her down at his feet.

As they waved accusing hands, they treat her like a disease.

What shall we do with this one, caught in the act of sin.

Let the one of you who has not sinned, cast the first stone in, Oh.

 

I’m humbled by amazing grace,

I’m humbled by amazing grace,

I’m humbled by amazing grace,

Go and sin no more.

 

He raised her to her feet and said, ” Where are all your accusers?”

Look up my child it’s Me.  I do not condemn you…Oh.

 

Well, I’ve been face-down in that very same dust.

Chewed up and spit out by human lust.

But, I was pulled up the same Hand of love.

Jesus showed me the power to be free.

It’s the kind of love that everybody needs.

It’s the kind of love you can’t help but believe.

It’s the kind of love that you feel in your bones.

The kind of love that refuses to throw the first stone.

PASSIONS WING

 By Eric Fisher

Tears of joy, tears of pain, fall upon the eyes of God

A promise made is a promise kept forever

They that sow in tears shall reap in joy

 

Mother cries at a child’s side

She pleads her heart with the agony of love

Letting go is the hardest thing she knows, but

Jesus won’t ignore your tears

 

Tears of joy, tears of pain

Let them teach you how to live

Learn to sing, to soar on passions wing

And know today won’t come again

FEELS LIKE RAIN

 By Eric Fisher
© 2002 Spinning Couch Music

 

It feels like spring has found my soul

The winters cold has drifted far away

Like the dust it’s all been washed away

Cool and fresh and clean and beautiful as a brand new day

 

It feels like rain, upon my thirsty soul

It feels like rain.  Let it flow like a waterfall

And through the gray skies shines back the morning sun

Let it flood upon my heart.  I love the rain…

 

You’ve shown my heart that love is mine to hold

The morning after is the sweetest joy I’ve known

You broke the clouds and pulled me through yesterday

And all that I can do is raise my voice and get lost in praising You

 

It feels like rain, as it showers upon my thirsty soul

Lord, send your rain.  Let it flow like a waterfall

And through the gray skies shines back the morning sun

Let it flood upon my heart.  I love the rain.

REMEMBERED SUMMER

 By Eric Fisher
© 2002 Spinning Couch Music

 

Fields of green are seas of gray in moonlight so it seems

Underneath, these cobalt skies for now have covered me

 

I dream of your arms. 

But, for now it’s just this dream that keeps me warm

Opening, I’ll let these twilight breezes fill my wings

 

For I know that tomorrow sun will shine upon this face

And I know that tomorrow I’ll taste the summer warm in your embrace
  

Though my eyes cannot see, I feel the pull of someday drawing me

Out on this sea, a love-light in the distance carries me

 

For I know that tomorrow sun will shine upon this face

But, for now, I will borrow remembered summer warm in your embrace

NEW YEARS DAY

By Eric Fisher

I’m waiting here for New Years day

That’s when you will return, or so this TV. prophets says

I know I’ve heard this all before

It’s like asking the thief to come and knock three times upon your door

 

We lock and bar our family homes

We brace to bare the strain, to face the pending, dark unknown

Time to hold my breath and pray

Well I’m here to pray, but for the strength to see Your way

 

No man knows the hour. 

No man knows the day

No one knows the hour. 

No one knows the day

 

Lord I long to see that day

You will appear to me, I’ll hear the trumpet call my name

But I will not time the God of all eternity

Instead I’ll live each day prepared to take my leave

 

No man knows the hour. 

No man knows the day

No one knows the hour. 

No one knows the day

 

When I see you face to face

Surrounded by your all amazing grace

This world will stop its spin of day. 

And the stone of this life will roll away

And we shall be free…

.

BLESSING

 By Eric Fisher

May you find love as deep as the oceans

May your tears wash like rain to the sea

May your soul be a flower that shines in the light

And may Jesus be all that you need

 

May the Lord of the heavens restore you

To a faith that will never let go

And with each passing breath may the promise refresh

That we will all be with Him we’ll know

That Jesus is all that we need

May Jesus be all that you need

 

May your feet touch the gardens of heaven

May your heart swim a river of dreams

May you wake in the sunlight of his perfect love

He has promised to we who believe

And may Jesus be all that you need

And may Jesus be all that you need

.

HAND OF GOD

 Lyrics by Eric Fisher
© 2002 Spinning Couch Music

 

If I have felt the calm of a clear summer evening

If the stillness of the moment stirred my soul

If I have felt the joy in a star that’s gently falling

I have felt the hand of God

 

If I have seen the strength of a friend who’ll fight beside me

Or paused to see compassion inside a stranger’s eyes

If I have seen the smile of the precious heart that shares my name

I have seen the hand of God

 

And when my days have run their course,

This spring will flow back to it’s source

I pray that you will find me to be true

And when at last I see your face, surrounded by amazing grace

I will touch the hand that I knew

I will touch the hand of God

 

If I had seen my life before it had unfolded

I never would have held the joy to come

But Jesus holds my heart and all my days accounted for

Counted by the hand of God

I have felt the hand of God

I NEED YOU NOW

By Eric Fisher
© 2002 Spinning Couch Music

 

As I exit the Quickmart, she asks if I’ll spare a dollar or a dime

And I wonder if her kids are really hungry

Or if she’s just wasting my time

Who knows. All I know is I don’t want to stand before you

Knowing I left you hungry and cold, thirsty or alone

And I don’t have the answers

But I do know it’s not me who’s holding the scales

And the love that is in me is no love at all if it doesn’t prevail

 

I see the truth. I see the lies.

But I know I can’t see with just my own eyes

Staring long at the sun I’m lost in the clouds

Trying to rest in your love with no doubt

All that I know is I need You now

 

So many voices echo in my brain

All of these choices make me long for simpler days

Oh, I’m not complaining. It’s just that my life’s like a three ring parade

And the more that I know, the more I still don’t know

I guess that’s just the way

 

Meet me tonight by the light of the fire

Make all of your wishes my desire
