Album Notes
Written by Bri-anne Swan (SOCAN)
Produced by Mitch Girio & Bri-anne Swan
Engineer, mixed and mastered by Mitch Girio at Slaughterhouse 754 in Toronto


Lead me down to the water
Down to the water
Down to the stream
You've washed away nothing
From the time that is coming
Or my questions of how this could be
You've made me your bride
At best I'll be cast aside
At worst swallow stones
Still I'm told
O, Fortunate One

In an instant my days turn to waiting
For the life You're creating
The fulfillment of David's throne
And angel, I think you've forgotten
Through His only begotten
Tongues speak few ways I shall be known:
Peasant virgin with child
Celebrated as meek and mild
The goals of our daughters inked in time
Yet, blessed am I

So now I'll sit by the water
Pray by the water
And rock by the shore
For my child who is coming
Love and terror that's calling
The fear and angst of the unknown
As we shake in the night
We pray for Your presence
To yield us your light
Oh yes, Light
Magnify though my soul

Here I am, may it be

(My soul doth magnify my God
And my spirit rejoices
Mercy extends to those who fear
All generations will call me blessed

Scatter the proud in their deepest thoughts
Strike down the powerful from their thrones
Lift up the lowly
Feed the hungry
Send the rich away

Please help Your servant Israel
Remember, be merciful
As to Abraham and his children
Just as You promised

I'm afraid)
