Track Name: Qôl
You have the word of the Lord
You speak the words of the Lord
Track Name: Yirmeyah
What's this
I hear a voice
Before I was
You knew

And how can I speak Your word
For I am but a youth

The promise of Your word
It never leaves my side
I will obey
I'll go Your way

This day I'm over
The nations and kingdoms for You
To root out and pull down
To throw and to plant and to build

Wherever You send I will go
Whatever You say I will speak
I won't be afraid of their faces
I'll look to Your grace

And if ever my heart starts to doubt
I'll remember Your hand touched my mouth
And the words that now leave my tongue
Resemble a higher display of glory

Whom shall I fear
Whom shall I be afraid
When You are near
When You are near
Track Name: Yeshaiah
That year I looked and saw a throne
And One was seated exalted high
With a multitude of creatures roaring up a sound
An utterance of words that all fail to describe

The winds were howling
Whirling up a storm composed by many wings
As the room began to sing
With His robe filling the temple
Walls of feathers shielding faces from glory

Holy, holy

Woe is me I am undone
I'm a man of unclean lips
Amongst a people filled with sin
Woe is me I am undone
My desire is to be worthy
For my eyes have seen the King

Send me
Send me
My King
Send me
Send me
Track Name: Yehezke'l
From the north a whirlwind descends
Like a cloud mingled in flame and fire
And the sky radiates with amber
As the lightning strikes the wings of the four

I'm overcome
I'm overcome

I fall on my face
At the sight of all that surrounds You
I bury my face
At the sound of the roar of Your voice
I tremble and shake
In the weight of all of Your glory
One glimpse of Your face
I'm collapsing to my knees

You call my name
Your raise me up
You fill my bones with a fire I can't quench
So I'll eat the scroll
Your hand has sent
Let every word that You wrote pass my lips

As I prepare the way of the Lord
Your spirit moves possessing all of my bones
And now I bring the word of the Lord
Now I speak the words of the Lord

You have the word of the Lord
You speak the words of the Lord
