1. I’m a Believer


A wall of fire and wind worn stone
Lai lai lai lai
within a bend I could be home
Lai lai lai lai
Its because of him who was dead
He was the special one that bled
and I , I believe in Him
Oh I, I’m a believer in Him

The tide moves in yes in and out
lai lai lai lai
the child on wind swept fields does shout
lai lai lai lai
the clouds above flash across the sky
because of Him I’ll never die,
and I, I believe in Him
Oh, I, I’m a believer in Him

A soul it dwells in flesh and bone
Lai lai lai lai
yet many a heart is made of stone
lai lai lai lai
they don’t want to receive his pure light
change what’s wrong making it right
and I, I believe in Him
Oh I, I’m a believer in Him

2. HARVEST

Christian fellow rise from your bed
Scrape off the mould that’s growing on your head
Life your quaking, aching small frame and stand
Out there, there is a harvest field of man

Tip toe and look through the windows
in the four walls you build around yourself
Time to take down the gloves from off your shelf
Speak now about the Lord you’ll meet
There in the sky the sun slowly sets
Like a stone down into the quick sand
Out there, there is a harvest field of man

Heal that divided tongue oh Lord,
and that split that needs healing on their tongue
Help them say you the Lord the G-d that’s one
Our dear Master pays overtime
Yes, its worth you crossing over the line
There’s a great big crop out there in the land
Out there, there is a harvest field of man

Time to take the sickle in hand
Oh my friends don’t be shy
I see a destroying storm pushing through the sky

Lyrics by Davyd Homan

3. STRANGE WEEDS

Ha Shem, he can reach into your heart without cutting through the skin
Removing the pain that then casting it into a plastic bin
There’s no need for a scalpel or a knife,
You know you’re only living half a life
Its time for his torch so the hurt will depart,
Then comes the time, the time for a new start

The sea gently rolled all the way over my rough sand in its time
Taking all that debris all of that hurt, all of the pain of mine
My beach is now so lovely, clean and smooth,
No longer marked with lines, pit or groove
Ha Shem he can clean away pain from the heart
Then comes the time, the time for a new start

There’s peace in our gardens
now that the strange weeds with bad roots are pulled out
I held the red wine, my friend was holding a glass of stout
Notes sang by a bird slid in to my ear
And that nice smell was filling the atmosphere
Now flowers have been planted from the hurt we are apart
Then comes the time, the time for a new start

Lyrics by Davyd Homan

4. PROPHETIC WORDS

God gave me these words which I injected into my veins
They come to mind by circulating past my warm brain
They help me when I’m low on power when I’m low on gas
When the weight of this life’s a pain
You know in the elbow

Believer don’t throw your true words into the bin
Let them enter your life’s support capsule of skin
Let those words travel deep inside where there is on light
Like a flame pilot flame flickers
Till the time is right

Be patient and watch the new moons come and then go
Wait through the seasons the time it will melt like the snow
Let’s keep holy doing what it is right, walking in the light
Then our words they will come to pass
Does the sun give light?

by Davyd Homan

5. Gift

Lord they’re trying to find a way to bring me down then attach a great big heavy chain
You know those things that float along and don’t get wet in the rain
O Lord destroy their plans to be like a huge spider waiting till the time is right then they want to jump and bite and slowly suck out my life

O Lord keep me safe to finish my race, lead me on lead me on

If I was blind in one eye and couldn’t see out the other your gift would still help me to see them
They roam the earth causing much pain and mixing it with mayhem
O Lord help me to pray along this scorched path way that’s the only way to fight
I know that I cannot kill them with a laser beam of light

By Davyd Homan

6. OLD MAN

An old man came up to me and said
“I need forgiveness of my sins
Tell me where I can find G-d’s grace to meet me deep within”
He said “I’m a sinner as black as coal”
I fear those church bells for for this old man will soon toll

I said “Hey Old Man …
I found grace between the Med and the Dead Sea
there hanging, hanging on a tree for you and me”
I cried out “Yeshua bleed on me, bleed on me”
“Old man there’s grace for the healthy, sick and dying but not the dead
Did you hear what I said?”

In a symbolic way my friend
you do need to be washed clean in his blood
Let him meet you and let your fear be consumed by his love
He said “I’m a sinner, I know it well, I’m scared this heavy hand will press
down on this cracked shell

I said “Hey Old Man …
His hand can pull blackened petals from a white rose
I’m not an act, not an entertainment show
the curtains on your stage my friend, are about to go down
Old man there’s grace for the healthy, sick and dying but not the dead
Did you hear what I said?”

Old Man

7. HANDS

Hands can steal from the poor or hand out food to feed
They can pull out flowers or plant a seed
Hands can make a coffin in which a cold stiff body will lie
or make a cot in which a baby one day will cry
His hands were forced out from his sides
for sin they bled and then he died
I’m so grateful because I’m forgiven but sad
because he’s my rabbi

The grooms’s hands untie the bride’s pretty white French gown
Slipping over her shoulders to fall to the ground
Red hands hold the stained blade and the innocent lies on the tarmac
A different blade, the surgeon trying to save the cardiac
A hand held up to wipe a tear that’s falling from her lovely blue eye
Hands they came from Rome did hold and pushed the spear
through God’s side

by Davyd Homan

8. THE PAVEMENT LAID

The Spirit’s moving through the land
trying to bring everyone to hand.
The price now paid the pavement laid
Who will join us on the narrow way?

Yes, those will wash in his blood
Stand under showers of his love
Will then go on above, to heaven

You know I’m not a comedian
Yet there I would be an alien
There I won’t go and settle in
most likely stay in a nice cabin

Because I love Zion, home for me
From God’s throne, his decree
That his people with Him
live in peace by Davyd Homan

9. DON’T DESPAIR

You say you are very cold
you know you are getting old
Don’t despair it’s the end of the age
life will soon turn a new page
You’re the bride waiting for the groom
He’s coming so soon
Don’t worry he’s at the gate
He won’t be early he won’t be late

Don’t let despair roll down your eyes
look up into cloudy sky
Redemption’s coming, you’re gonna win
No longer to fight against sin
Soon his face you’re going to see
Shining brightly, one in three
Heaven that’s where you’ll be free
Taken out of trouble his praises sing

by Davyd Homan

10. DREAMING MAN

You believe the stars of the night will guide you through bright daylight.
Haven’t you seen the telescope the pentagrams are both held in
In chained hands
In chained hands
You’re the dreaming man, dreaming while you stand

You believe we all can be one dance together under blood red sun haven’t you seen the dark cloud forms yeah don’t you know, my time to warn
Rain does come
Rain does come
You’re the dreaming man, dreaming while you stand

You believe in money and in wealth all ways lead to God from your mouth
Haven’t you seen your cars got rust
The road your on
Is all wrong, You’re the dreaming man, dreaming while you stand

By Davyd Homan

11. SONG OF THE LAMB

Great and marvellous, are your works
Lord G-d Almighty
Just and true, are your ways
Oh King of the nations
Who will not fear you oh Lord
and glorify you?
For you alone are holy

Holy, holy, holy are you Lord
Holy, holy, holy are you Lord (twice)

Great and marvellous, are your works
Lord G-d Almighty
Just and true, are your ways
Oh King of the nations
All nations will come
and bow before you
For your righteous acts
have been revealed

Holy, holy, holy are you Lord
Holy, holy, holy are you Lord (twice)

From The Book of Revelation 15:3-5

12 WHO HAS BELIEVED

Who has believed our message?
And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?
He grew up before him
like a tender shoot
like a root out of dry ground
Who has believed our message?
And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?
He bore our iniquities
was pierced for our transgressions
By his wounds we are healed
We all like sheep
have gone astray
Each of us has turned to our own way
By his wounds we are healed
Who has believed our message?
And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?
It was the Lord’s will
to cause him to suffer
And make his life a guilt offering
By his wounds we are healed
Who has believed our message?
And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?

Lyrics are an arrangement from Isaiah 53:1-7

13. DEAD BUT ALIVE

The gang made the plans to go and do Jimmy Brown
then they snuffed out the candles
and went and blew our Jimmy down
Yet the truth is a man never dies

True it’s the end of our Miss Beth Shervice Bonn,
her last tea, her last little read,
then her last breath and now shes gone
Yet the truth is a man never dies.

Friends when I’m dead I’ll be alive on the other side
A change of scenery is good for me I will survive
Oh please don’t cry
Yet the truth is
this man never died

Lyrics by Davyd Homan

14. YOU MADE THE BLUE

A million words couldn’t sum you up.
What can I say, how to start?
Yet what I know is this:
My neck is so sore
from looking up so high
Oh you made the blue
The blue sky

I feel so inadequate to describe You in words
From this paper, maybe I should part
Yet with these words
I’ll finish and find some soft grass and on my back lie.
Oh you made the blue
You made the blue
The blue sky

Lyrics by Davyd Homan
