Sing with me to remember Sing with me to forget Sing from hope, not regret I know you’re tired I see you’re spent We call you a hero But don’t help you find the rent For every number you knew the name When you’re low, sing with me Sing with me to remember Sing with me to forget Sing from hope, not regret When you get home You feel alone though love and noise surround you The memories linger on For every number you knew the name When you’re low, sing with me Sing with me to remember Sing with me to forget Sing from hope, not regret When you’re low, sing with me

The tree of life my soul has seen, Laden with fruit and always green: The trees of nature fruitless be Compared with Christ the apple tree. His beauty does all things excel: By faith I know, but ne’er can tell, The glory which I now can see In Jesus Christ the apple tree. For happiness I long have sought, And pleasure dearly I have bought: I missed of all; but now I see 'Tis found in Christ the apple tree. I'm weary with my former toil, Here I will sit and rest a while: Under the shadow I will be, Of Jesus Christ the apple tree. This fruit does make my soul to thrive, It keeps my dying faith alive: Which makes my soul in haste to be With Jesus Christ the apple tree.

He comes from a long line of priests & preachers whose fiery performances characterise his style. ... more
