The Songs of Heirloom

We wanted to share the original and powerful lyrics our musicians wrote as part of Heirloom: Reflections of the Psalms project.


Hover (Instrumental)

written by Austin Summers & Glenn Deuel

performed by Austin Summers, Glenn Deuel, Ethan Hardin, Terri Miller

Oblivion (Psalm 88)

written by Amanda Opelt

performed by Amanda Opelt, Erin Deuel, Glenn Deuel, Tim Opelt, Ethan Hardin, Ray Edmonds

Darkness is no stranger to me

I don't know what others have seen

I will bear the witness, bear the flame

There's beauty in the telling, in the refrain

Do you speak in the oblivion?

Are your deeds known by the dead?

And I've seen nations come undone

As I weep for the tears that you've bled

All will bear His image, hold His breath

A task that Adam's children must accept

And brevity of life cannot quell

Some carry it to kingdom, some carry it to hell

Do you speak in the oblivion?

Are your deeds known by the dead?

And I've seen nations come undone

As I weep for the tears that you've bled

Oh we hover in between conception and the grave

But I believe He lights the darkness

Of all the miracles I've seen and all the prayers I've raised

Existence is the greatest gift of all

We hover in between conception and the grave

But I believe He lights the darkness

Of all the miracles I've seen and all the prayers I've raised

To know Him is the greatest gift of all

Content In Your Arms (Psalm 131)

written by Ethan Hardin

performed by Ethan Hardin, Erin Deuel, Glenn Deuel, Tim Opelt, Ray Edmonds

My heart is not proud, Lord

My eyes are lowered

My mind is not troubled by Your great beauty

I am still

I am just a child content in Your arms

You are too beautiful

For me to worry

I am still

Hope now and forever

In the One who is forever

My Shepherd King (Psalm 23)

written by Ethan Hardin

performed by Ethan Hardin, Erin Deuel, Glenn Deuel, Tim Opelt, Ray Edmonds; Group vocals by Erin Deuel, Amanda Opelt, Tim Opelt, Ray Edmonds, Kelsie Summers, Graham Aitken, Mark Youmans

The Lord is my Shepherd

I shall not be in want

He gives me rest in beautiful places
