"I have stretched cords from steeple to steeple, garlands from window to window, chains of gold from star to star, and I dance" (Rimbaud). King David leaped and danced naked before the ark of the Lord in a barren desert. Here the looped soil is an intricate throng of praise. Make connections; let rip; and dance where you can.

Phenomenon

I am not here just to see a phenomenon
I am not here for experiential bliss
I simply come to the feet of the God I serve,
The one that I love

I am not here for the sake of the peopleís praise
I have not come to see the thunder and rain
I simply come into courts of the King above
The one that I Praise

I want to find the way to his chambers
I want to be in the presence of the Lord
I am in need of his mercy and favor
Forever more

I am not here for the sake of a miracle
I am not here just to see the dead raised
Yes I believe in power supernatural
But thatís not way I'm saved

Iíve had enough of this life of a Pharisee
I want to know this Jesus whoís been loving me
Iím running into the temple just to see
The one that I love

I want to find the way to his chambers
I want to be in the presence of the Lord
I am in need of his mercy and favor
Forever more


I give my heart to the one they call Jesus
Seeking out first the very kingdom of God
You are the way and the truth I believe it
You are my phenomenon

You can move mountains whenever you want to
You can speak to the sea whenever it pleases you

Forgive me oh Lord if Iíve been a market place
Turn me upside down so I will seek your face
And if your presence comes into this place
So will the thunder and rain


Rita Springer is a great lyricist. I love the line "Forgive me oh Lord if I've been a market place/Turn me upside down so I will seek your face"
