about

Ordinary Time

They met in a “History of Christian Worship” class in seminary, where they discovered a shared love for old songs in danger of being forgotten. The band’s oeuvre seamlessly weaves the hymns of generations past with their own new songs—often indistinguishably—producing a
sound that ranges from bluegrass-tinged Americana to sacred harp hymn arrangements.

Track Name: Just A Little Talk With Jesus
Just a Little Talk With Jesus
I once was lost in sin, but Jesus took me in
Then a little light from heaven healed my soul
Well He bathed my heart with love
And He wrote my name above
Just a little talk with Jesus makes it right

We’ll just have a little talk with Jesus
And we’ll tell him all about out troubles
He will hear our faintest cry
And he will answer by and by
When you feel a little prayer wheel turning
You will know a little fire is burning
Just a little talk with Jesus makes it right

You may have doubts and fears
And your eyes be filled with tears
But my Jesus is a friend who watches day and night
He wrote my name above
And he bathed my heart in love
Just a little talk with Jesus makes it right

We’ll just have a little talk with Jesus
And we’ll tell him all about out troubles
He will hear our faintest cry
And he will answer by and by
When you feel a little prayer wheel turning
You will know a little fire is burning
Just a little talk with Jesus makes it right
Words and Music by Cleavant Derricks
Track Name: Gather Them In
Gather Them In

We wait for you to testify
To hold the kingdoms to account
Your righteous justice shall not fail
All those who trust in your name

You will gather them in
You will bring, bring them home
O King of all Kings
Lord of all Lords

Sing out, sing out ye daughters of Zion
And Shout aloud o Israel
Be glad, rejoice with all your heart
He has removed your punishment

He will gather us in
He will bring, bring us home
O King of all Kings,
Lord of all Lords

He will rescue the lame
gather the scattered
He will give them praise and honor in every land
He will quiet us with love
He will rejoice over us with singing
He will restore the fortunes of the lost
Track Name: How Firm a Foundation
How Firm a Foundation
How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord,
Is laid for your faith in His excellent Word!
What more can He say than to you He has said,
For you who for refuge to have fled?

Fear not, I am with you, O be not dismayed,
For I am your God and will still give you aid;
I’ll strengthen you, help you, and cause you to stand
Upheld by My righteous, omnipotent hand.

When through the deep waters I call you to go,
The rivers of sorrow shall not overflow;
For I will be with you, your troubles to bless,
And sanctify to you your deepest distress.

When through fiery trials thy pathways shall lie,
My grace, all sufficient, shall be your supply;
The flame shall not hurt you; I only design
Your dross to consume, and your gold to refine.

The soul that on Jesus has leaned for repose,
I will not, I will not desert to its foes;
That soul, though all hell should endeavor to shake,
I’ll never, no never, no never forsake
Track Name: How Long?
How Long?

Wisdom cries out in the street
In the square she raises her voice
At the center of town you can hear her speak
Over all the other noise

She says:
How long o simple ones?
How long will you ignore?
Wake up you walking dead
Open your ears to the Lord!

My child do not forget
The path I show to you
All other ways only lead to death
Ways so easy to choose

Trust in the Lord only
With all your heart and mind
Then you shall not stumble
All that you seek you shall find
Track Name: I Do Believe
I Do Believe
I would be thine o take my heart and fill it with they love
Thy sacred image Lord impart and seal it with they love

I would be thine but while I strive to give myself away
I feel rebellion still alive and wonder why I pray

I do believe Lord in spite of all my sin
I would be yours Lord Please make me new within

I would be thine but Lord I feel evil still lurks within
Do thou thy majesty reveal and banish all my sin

I would be thine I would embrace the saviour and adore
Inspire with faith infuse with grace and now my soul restore
Track Name: How Gentle God's Commands
How Gentle God’s Commands
How gentle God’s commands,
How kind His precepts are!
Come, cast your burdens on the Lord,
And trust His constant care.

His goodness stands approved,
Down to the present day;
I’ll drop my burden at His feet,
And bear a song away.
Track Name: From The Dust
From The Dust
You gathered dust on our first day,
And breathed into us the day.
But scattered, scattered we returned.
So call us, the dust, back from the dust again.

Pierce the clay to deadened ears
One word and vacant bones will hear
Light to coffin-lidded eyes
Let the grip-less grave be surprised
You who lay within,
have only been enwombed here!

The fear that preyed on us in every age
That dark embarrassment our mind and tongues avoid
Unleashed on Christ but by him undone
Spent and exhausted on the risen One

I want to know the power of what He’s done
A vision now of what will surely come
The breath of God our life since our first day
Will one day roll the fog and stone away

Pierce the clay to deadened ears
One word and vacant bones will hear
Light to coffin-lidded eyes
Let the grip-less grave be surprised
You who lay within,
have only been enwombed here!
Track Name: Jesus! What a Friend for Sinners
Jesus! What a Friend for sinners!
Jesus! Lover of my soul;
Friends may fail me, foes assail me,
He, my Savior, makes me whole.

Hallelujah! What a Savior!
Hallelujah! What a Friend!
Saving, helping, keeping, loving,
He is with me to the end.

Jesus! What a Strength in weakness!
Let me hide myself in Him.
Tempted, tried, and sometimes failing,
He, my Strength, my victory wins.

Jesus! What a help in sorrow!
While the billows over me roll,
Even when my heart is breaking,
He, my Comfort, helps my soul.

Jesus! I do now adore Him,
More than all in Him I find.
He hath granted me forgiveness,
I am His, and He is mine.
Track Name: How Sweet the Name of Jesus Sounds
How Sweet the Name of Jesus Sounds
How sweet the Name of Jesus sounds
In a believer’s ear!
It soothes his sorrows, heals his wounds,
And drives away his fear.

It makes the wounded spirit whole,
And calms the troubled breast;
’Tis manna to the hungry soul,
And to the weary, rest.

Dear Name, the Rock on which I build,
My Shield and Hiding Place,
My never failing treasury, filled
With boundless stores of grace!

Jesus! my Shepherd, Brother, Friend,
My Prophet, Priest and King,
My Lord, my Life, my Way, my End,
Accept the praise I bring.

Weak is the effort of my heart,
And cold my warmest thought;
But when I see Thee as Thou art,
I’ll praise Thee as I ought.

Till then I would Thy love proclaim
With every fleeting breath,
And may the music of Thy Name
Refresh my soul in death!
Track Name: At the Table
At the Table
This I know
My trial is over
Cancelled not adjourned
And I leave to live in thanks
For life already earned

But this truth
Is far above me
Demons cloud his face
For someone else
His endless mercy,
Someone else his grace

We take your blood, your body
Warms us like wine, fills us like bread
Nail this moment of failure
High above your head

If you came
But not for this
What worth would it be?
If not for this
Why your birth?
Why your lonely death?

We take your blood, your body
Warms us like wine, fills us like bread
We take your blood, your body
Festive as wine, basic as bread
Nail this moment of failure
High above your head

Who can chart the course you take,
From the hosts of heaven’s glory
To this abandoned place?

From eternal favor, without any stain,
To the one and only offense to God,
Who can guess the pain?

What fuel could power, descent from above,
A distance beyond all human distance,
But your burning love?
Track Name: When I Survey the Wondrous Cross
When I Survey the Wondrous Cross
When I survey the wondrous cross
On which the Prince of glory died,
My richest gain I count but loss,
And pour contempt on all my pride.

Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast,
Save in the death of Christ my God!
All the vain things that charm me most,
I’ve sacrificed them to His blood.

The cross by faith I see
Within its shadow I will hide
His blood avails for me
For me the Prince of Glory died

Were the whole realm of nature mine,
That were a present far too small;
Love so amazing, so divine,
Demands my life, my soul, my all.
Track Name: Holy Spirit, Truth Divine
Holy Spirit, Truth Divine
Holy Spirit, Truth divine,
Dawn upon this soul of mine;
Word of God and inward light
Wake my spirit, clear my sight.

Holy Spirit, Right divine,
King within my conscience reign;
Be my Lord, and I shall be
Firmly bound, forever free.

Holy Spirit, Peace divine,
Still this restless heart of mine;
Speak to calm this tossing sea,
Stayed in Thy tranquility.

Holy Spirit, Joy divine,
Gladden Thou this heart of mine;
In the desert ways I sing,
“Spring, O Well, forever spring.”
Track Name: May God Keep You
May God Keep You
Psalm 150
May God keep you on your road
Send blessings upon your head
May Jesus share your heavy load
And bring you peace and rest
May his face shine down upon you
May you feel His grace
May He never remove His steadfast love from you.

Let everything that has breath
Praise His holy name
Praise Him for His mighty deeds
Praise Him all that He creates
Praise Him in His sanctuary
Praise Him all the earth
Praise Him throughout all the ages for His faithfulness.
