about

This project started out as an experiment to work out arrangements ideas for these three songs and as a way to flex creativity. These were recorded in 2015 and have been sitting around for a while, so we decided to release them as an EP. They are offered an opportunity to think outside our usual acoustic folk style and explore some new territory.

Track Name: My Jesus Has Done All Things Well
O for a heart prepared to sing,
To God, my Savior and my King;
While with his saints I join to tell,
My Jesus has done all things well.

How sovereign, wonderful, and free,
Is all his love to sinful me!
He plucked me as a brand from hell;
My Jesus has done all things well.

And since my soul has known his love,
What mercies has he made me prove;
Mercies which all my praise excel;
My Jesus has done all things well.

Soon shall I pass the vale of death,
And in his arms shall lose my breath;
Yet then my happy soul shall tell,
My Jesus has done all things well.

And when to that bright world I rise,
And join the anthems in the skies,
Among the rest this note shall swell,
My Jesus has done all things well.
Track Name: Alleluia! Sing to Jesus!
Alleluia! sing to Jesus! His the scepter, his the throne.
Alleluia! His the triumph, his the vict’ry, his alone.
Hark! the songs of peaceful Zion thunder like a mighty flood.
Jesus out of every nation hath redeemed us by his blood.

Alleluia! not as orphans are we left in sorrow now;
Alleluia! He is near us, faith believes, nor questions how;

Though the cloud from sight received him when the forty days were o'er
shall our hearts forget his promise, 'I am with you evermore'?
Alleluia! bread of heaven, here on earth our food and stay!
Alleluia! here the sinful flee to thee from day to day.

Intercessor, Friend of sinners, earth's Redeemer, plead for me.
Where the songs of all the sinless sweep across the crystal sea.

Alleluia! King eternal, thee the Lord of lords we own;
Alleluia! born of Mary, earth thy footstool, heaven thy throne.
Thou within the veil hast entered, robed in flesh, our great High Priest.
Thou on earth both Priest and Victim in the Eucharistic Feast.

Alleluia! sing to Jesus! His the scepter, his the throne.
Alleluia! His the triumph, his the vict’ry, his alone.
Track Name: The Strife is O'er, the Battle Done
The strife is o'er, the battle done,
the victory of life is won;
the song of triumph has begun.
Alleluia, allelu!
The powers of death have done their worst,
but Christ their legions hath dispersed:
let shout of holy joy outburst.
Alleluia, allelu!
Alleluia, allelu! Alleluia, alleluia!

The three sad days are quickly sped,
he rises glorious from the dead:
all glory to our risen Head!
Alleluia, allelu!
He closed the yawning gates of hell,
the bars from heaven's high portals fell;
let hymns of praise his triumphs tell!
Alleluia, allelu!
Alleluia, allelu! Alleluia, alleluia!

Lord! by the stripes which wounded thee,
from death's dread sting thy servants free,
that we may live and sing to thee.
Alleluia, allelu!
Alleluia, allelu! Alleluia, alleluia!
