Refuge for Rejects

Written By: chris carnahan

The Refuge for Rejects

They say one's trash is another's treasure
With me this may be so
Just ask the parents I never had
Or the friends I'll never know
Here I am foresaken
In a world that's so cold
By morning my light will fade
At the age of two weeks old
Will I find the refuge for rejects
Where alleluias they sing
In the refuge for rejects
I'll forget all my pain

You tell me that you're sorry
There's nothing you can do
All you care about is profits
With helping others
you are through
I dont understand how anyone can
Kick a dying man out on the street
I pray God saves you from your greed
So the devil you'll never meet
Will I find the refuge for rejects
Where alleluias they sing
In the refuge for rejects
I'll forget all my pain

You cast me out and avert your eyes
my cries fall on deaf ears
In this shell of a home
I dwell alone
Until the end of my years
Why wont you let me move on
My husband is gone
I no longer feel alive
I fall to my knees, God deliver me please
Only in You can I survive
And in Your glorious refuge Lord
Alleluias we will sing
In the refuge for rejects
We'll forget all our paiin
In the refuge for rejects
We'll forget all our pain

Jesus, Breath of Life

Written By: Chris Carnahan

I lift my eyes to heaven
what do Isee
the hand of the Almighty
reaching out to me
When my mind is broken by darkness
and the battle overwhelms me
I fly swiftly to your throneroom
surrounded by your love so warm
In your arms my soul finds rest
far fromthe tempest and the storm.

I lift my ears to heaven
what do I hear
A chorus of angels
singing love is here
I've been lost on the my-way
guide me back to the highway
I give it all away
Jesus I submit to you.

John took one look at you
what did he say
Behold the Lamb of God
Who takes our sins away
The earth has its vast oceans
only your water makes me new
In a world full of stones
you're the only Rock that's true.

God I stand in awe
of your mercy and your love
The river washes over me
my eyes begin to well
Jesus, breath of life
Inside my earthly shell

Lament for the Fallen

Written By: Chris Carnahan

Where's my loyal servant gone
Hands once held in prayer
covered with blood
Your soul cries out for living water
Your well neglected has gone dry
Why have you foresaken
your Rock and salvation
Hearts were snatched away
by a thief in the night
Blind eyes look away
Blue skies turn to grey
Every raindrop a tear from heaven

My sons what have you done
Lips once gave me praise
now flirt with the world
I await your return
with arms open wide
Why have you foresaken
your Rock and salvation
Come out of the darkness
Return to the light
Blind eyes look away
Blue skies turn to grey
Every raindrop a tear from heaven

Withering trees turn from your ways
or I'll rebuke you at my gates
You'll be torn apart no mercy, no grace
Just come back to me
say you're sorry
Your sins now like scarlet
shall be white as snow
Blind eyes look away
Blue skies turn to grey
Every raindrop a tear from heaven.
