G Em C D You are the vine, we are the branches G Em C D You are mine and I am yours G Em C D I will abide, here in Your presence G Em C D For You alone have words of life C D G Em For Your presence is all that I need C D G Em Your presence is the air that I breathe C D G Em C Your presence is more than enough for me You are the bread; my satisfier (you satisfy me [my life sustainer?]) I taste and see that You are good And I will drink of your living water And I will never thirst again G/B C D G If I have You I have everything G/B C D G If I have You I have everything G/B C D Em Apart from You I can do nothing G/B C D G But if I have You I have everything
Prophet, priest and king we worship You Jesus You’re the way, the life, the truth Hallelujah, Hallelujah Who can compare to You our God? No one in heaven or earth Jesus, fully God and fully man Slain from the foundation, spotless Lamb Hallelujah, Hallelujah The heavens and the earth can’t contain You Heaven is your throne, earth your footstool And though the nations rage they will bow down And kiss the Son, kiss the Son


In the fall of 2021, I spent a few days in a cabin at the top of a mountain in Moravian Falls, North Carolina. I took my guitars and recorded acoustic demos of these three songs while I was there.

The Moravians were a Christian missionary movement from Germany that hosted over 100 years of 24/7 prayer and worship. Their motto was “May the Lamb Receive the Reward of His Suffering.” A large portion of the Appalachian foothills of North Carolina where I recorded these tracks were originally settled by the Moravians when they moved south from Pennsylvania in the 1700s — during the same period of history in which they were maintaining their non-stop prayer vigil.
