1 CD Song Lyrics: Witness, Year Red, Semester 2, Grades 5-8 Track 1: My Home (Mary's Song) Contributor: Beki Hemingway Haven't had a moment's rest Since the baby was born Lord, you put me to the test You gave me a chance to change the world Now Joseph had a dream I guess we're on the move again Strange as it may seem I do believe you speak to him And so...here we go Lord, I am your servant If you lead, I will go Where you are, wherever you take me Is where I'll be 'Cause that's my home, you're my home The news back home is bad Many neighbors in despair Mourning children slain by Herod's men But you have led us safely away from there And we know he will keep looking But we know he will not find us Your hand is on your chosen one And it holds me in these troubled times Lord, I am your servant If you lead, I will go Where you are, wherever you take me Is where I'll be 'Cause that's my home You're my home, though we are far away From friends and family You are keeping me close 1

2 And your angels speak in dreams That tell us all we need to know Lord, I am your servant If you lead, I will go Where you are, wherever you take me Is where I'll be 'Cause that's my home, you're my home Contact Information 2

Track 5: Calm the Storm Contributor: David Scherer We followed Jesus and we all got on the boat Waves crashin' didn't know if we could float Big ol' storm and the boat almost broke We all shook Jesus and he finally awoke No joke the dude was literally dozin' while we're almost dyin' He was almost laughin' and we were almost cryin' He had peace in midst of the mayhem Even the wind and the waves obey him We thought that we would drown that day Jesus looked at us and said I don't get down that way You think I would let something happen when I was nappin'? I still help you held you on my lap and even when the wind was snappin' I still had your back and I ain't gonna leave it Ye of little faith just sit back and receive it Don't have to worry, it's a gift and it's free Hey Jesus can you calm me? That's real If Jesus can calm the storm and calm the sea Then Jesus can calm me 5

6 I got a paper due tomorrow and I'm stayin' up late My little sister's on the phone for like a couple hours straight And my parents make me mad when they tell me to wash dishes We all got our cross to bear, but what kind of cross is this? Zits on my face, anxiety is building Teachers won't listen 'cause they say we're just children Didn't even practice for my piano lesson It's crazy in this world, could this be adolescence? Gotta go to soccer but I gotta go to dinner I gotta be a student and I gotta be a winner Expectations out the wazoo Parents, I don't think y'all know what y'all do The storm of my life is whippin' me all around I feel like I'm about to drown but I hear a sound sayin' Your boat will never capsize You were claimed when you were baptized Know that I am with you in everything you do Sometimes I calm the sea, sometimes I calm you. If Jesus can calm the storm and calm the sea Then Jesus can calm me David Scherer spreads a positive flow through hip hop.

15 Track 14: Phil and the Ethiopian T-Man Contributor: Cathy Pino 2003 Cathy Pino Same old road Tried and traveled many times before Going home Same old turns that lead back to his door Come to worship He was just a stranger in this foreign land Come to hear the ancient words Do his best to understand He said, ''Please, please could you take some time for me? What does it mean? All these words, all this mystery?'' I said, ''Do you know the ending to this story? If you like I'll show you so much more.'' It's a brand new day Old, old story now the good, good news It's a brand new way Old, old road suddenly brand new Ancient words: love, humility, and sacrifice Ancient vision, seeing all the way to Jesus Christ So astounding how a king will bow so low to reach for us Love resounding now across the ages into each of us Here is water, let us go, let us go And wash the old away at last What's to keep us waiting one minute more Into the water, let us go So astounding how a king would bow so low to reach for us Love resounding now across the ages into each of us Same old road 15

16 Somehow suddenly a different view Going home, carrying a treasure bright and new I may never know just where the rest was leading But I won't forget his song as he was leaving Cathy Pino is a musician/writer from Minneapolis.

Track 15: I Saw the Light Contributor: Paul Frantzen I saw the light (the light of life) I saw the light (the light of Christ) I saw the light I saw the light of Jesus I was going to Damascus, I was looking for the Way When a light flashed all around me and I heard a strong voice say, ''Saul, Saul, stop looking for a fight. Get up and follow me and I will lead you to the light.'' I was walkin' like a blind man in the middle of the day I was led to Ananias and I heard the kind man say, ''Saul, Saul, see Christ can set you free. He's the way, the truth, the life just trust and you will see.'' I was led into the desert, that's when Jesus met me there Then the Spirit came inside me and God made the message clear 16

17 ''Saul, Saul, see I have chosen you. Go into the world and share my light with others too.'' Now the story isn't over, no it's meant for me and you And it's written down to show us all the things that God can do Love, faith, and walking in the light We are called to live our lives by faith and not by sight 17
