Who deserves thanks;

First things first, this album has been created to express my love to our Lord and Saviour, the inspiration behind all my creative thoughts.
Thank you God for the opportunity and your faithfulness.

To my lovely wife Justine, remember when we were walking in Leederville and you said ‘hey I really believe you can do this’, I had my doubts but you never stopped believing for one minute, thank you for being my biggest cheer leader, my constant companion and source of laughter, for your crucial help with the string arrangements (heavily pregnant) and amazing enthusiasm for this project, your patience and support knows no bounds, I love you immensely.

My beautiful children, Adelle, Jacob, Meghan, and Tobias, you bring colour, joy and laughter to my world. Thank you for your encouragement and understanding over the years. I’m so proud of you all and adore you. To my parents Larry & Marlene, and my brothers Iain & Russ, thank you for always showing me the importance of family and what it means to support each other through the good times and not-so-good. I love you all.

To the band, Chad Blondel Mark Fairclough Lou Stallo Geoff Grubb Glenn Whitfield Eddie Morris, Ah the laughs, the beers! Good times.
You have demonstrated to me what true friendship is all about. I can’t thank you enough for your time, exceptional talents, creativity and support, especially throughout this creative process.
Chad, your contribution to these songs and to the sound is priceless, you’re flippin’ legend young man. Thank you all for who you are, for being so open to try my random and often whacky ideas, for your amazing talents and incredible input. It’s an honour to work alongside you.
‘The Big Table’ especially my great friend Michael Dunjey. Without your financial wisdom, ongoing support, generosity, low-brow humour and incredible abilities – as a mentor and friend, this album wouldn’t have been possible. Thank you so much, man.
To Simon & Fi, the way you live your life – with inspiring vision for God’s church, with such a huge gift of hospitality, generosity, grace and love for others, with God always at the centrepiece, with tonnes of creative talent and motivation to do so much (which quite frankly sickens me!) you both never cease to amaze me. I’m humbled to be called your friend. Thank you for contributing so much to my life and this album. To Vinny & Amanda Tan, for being the best neighbours and friends – especially the many delicious meals, your constant support and encouragement both personally and musically and your attitudes of yes, how can I help? You are both great examples of being God’s hands and feet. To Doug, you live a life of relational Godliness. Thank you for your prayers, friendship and horn blowing! I’m honoured to be mates with you.
To Paul Morrison, Mark Cullen, Colin Mills, Gerry Azor (for the Rhodes), Dave Statham, Steinberg Tan, Steve Fraser, Lynne Brooks, Duann Orriss thank you for being friends, mentors, for offering your gifts both for this album and over the years. To my places of inspiration (which always revolves around coffee) 130’s, Greens & Co, Five Senses & Antz inya Pantz good memories of watching life pass by with my long mac and trusty journal, the entire suburb of Leederville especially the birds, To everyone else I bounced all my ideas off last year, you’re all amazing. Thank you so much.

Track Name: I Will Remember
God of the universe
Lord of my heart
Took time to walk the earth
God of eternity
Lord of my life
Took all my sin and shame

The cross, the scars
My heart breaks
Your eyes, your touch
My world changed

But I can’t explain that one thing
That you gave your all for me
So I make this vow to you Lord
Thru all my life, in all my days
I will remember

Yesterday and today and forever He’s the same
I will not forget this day
Everday I will say
I will always walk Your way
Always walk Your way

Your glory fill this place…

Make my heart shine, like the sunrise

Sent You’re daylight, took my night time
Lord You’re more than enough, You’re more than enough

I will run to You
When everything comes crashing down
Find rest my soul

You make the day seem brighter
You make it all worthwhile and
You are the centre of my world

You have made my joy complete
My hope renewed
I will worship You forever

Build my world around You
Everything I need You to be
Build my world around You
Never be the same without You near

The beauty of Your face
Is written in the sky
The wonder of Your grace

Is echoed from on high
The glory of Your name

And the people sing hallelujah
And the nations bring their praise
And the angels sing hallelujah
And the heavens bring their praise

Holy is the Lord

Track Name: The One Who Draws Me Near
Deep as the ocean wide as the sea
Nothing created
Can take You away from me
You hold every nation in the palm of Your hand
Every injustice that I don’t understand
You are the one who will calm every fear
I’m broken but safe within You
You are the one who will wipe every tear
You are the one who draws me near
This precious mystery is that You cared for me

Copyright©2010 Rob Humphreys\Glenn Whitfield\Mark Fairclough\Chad Blondel
Track Name: What I Am Inside
Only metres separate the hearts
Conversation, thousand miles apart
The fence between us, the distance lies within
Ends with a smile, the pretension wins

If I could love like You love
I would open up my heart
To the weak and broken
Live on the out what I am inside

Troubled teachers separate the class
Education, wouldn’t go that far
The gulf between us, the hurting lies within
Turn of the head, the pretension wins

My hearts been taken by a holy thief
I believe Lord, help my unbelief
No denying the truth that lies within
Don’t ever let the pretension win

Copyright©2010 Rob Humphreys
Track Name: In Your Hands
Finally I’ve found where I belong
Forever in Your arms
Will not be long enough
And I can see
You’ve been here all along
Forever by my side
Your love has made me whole

You are with me
I will never walk alone
Here forever
In Your hands

In love’s sweet reflections
Shimmer like the sun upon the water
Let it be in me as it is in You
Shining all You are
That all the world would see.

Track Name: Peace
Flying through the turbulence of life
Overwhelmed when nothing else seems right
Through the storms and through the lightning strikes

Navigating through the desert plains
Lost where no-one even knows your name
No direction home, I know a way

Peace that passes understanding
Truth in love yet undemanding
Strength when you are hand and hand in

Copyright©2010 Rob Humphreys
Track Name: One Way (Larry’s Lament)
One way one way to Heaven, hold up high your hands
One way, free and forgiven, children of the Lamb

Two roads diverged in the middle of my life
I heard a wise man say
But I took the road less travelled by
And that's made the difference
every night and every day
So I say

One way, one way to Heaven, hold your head up high
Follow, free and forgiven
Children of the sky
