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

He restores my soul

He guides my pathways

He teaches me righteousness

And the beauty of His name

Oh You are my Shepherd

Oh You are my King, my King

Oh in the house of God forever

Oh You are my Shepherd King

Even though I walk

Through the valley of the shadow

I will not fear

For you are always with me

You set the table

In the presence of my enemies

You smile at me and say,

"Welcome home, my son"

Oh You are my Shepherd

Oh You are my King, my King

Oh in the house of God forever

Oh You are my Shepherd King

I will dwell in the house of God forever

Surely love will follow me all my days

Sing in the Tension (Psalm 13)

written by Erin Deuel

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

Am I forgotten?

Am I alone?

Do you even hear me, oh God?

Will I always

Will I always hurt?

Will I ever be heard?

How long?

But I'll turn my face above

And I'll whisper the name of the One

I know is good

I will sing

In the tension of everything

When I'm defeated

My song is my light

My song is my hope

My song is my life

It's where I'll find You

So I'll turn my face above

And I'll look upon the face of the One

So I'll turn my face above

And I'll look upon the face of the One

I know is good

Get To You (Psalm 139)
