about

This is our fourth full-length album since we hit the digital age! It is the first fully studio-produced album, with one exception: on each album we have a tradition of including one old live track. We did this on "Still Flowing" and are doing it again here with "I WIll Go (live)", included as a bonus track. This album includes mostly re-makes of some of our oldest tunes, plus a few absolutely brand new tracks. One tying bind between all four albums is the song, "City of Joy" included in some way on each of them. It provides the theme for this album, taken from its phrase, "where joy will overflow." Here, we quote the song in the tune that opens up the album, "Sing to Jesus". "Sing to Jesus" and "Light of the World" are the thematic and sonic bookends for the whole thing. "Light of the World" features the full classic band line-up, a very exciting thing for us.

Thematically, this album Is a hopeful prayer. It speaks to the crises of soul felt by most of us in this modern world, whether "no one loves you" or the culture mocks you, or you just lost your husband, your best friend has betrayed you, or you are a runaway in the streets of New York City. The answer, of course, to all this need is Christ in the context of the Body of Christ, especially in the Cup and Bread that heal us and join us as one. And O what joy there is when we realize that "there is a place to go" in His Body, where we can love in the FLOWing power of His grace and achieve our mutual eternal destiny. It makes us want to clap, dance and sing "Alleluia!" & "Sing Hosanna to Jesus!"

The songs are pretty evenly divided this time between Mark & Mike, the original song-writing pair of the band. Many of these date back to the earliest days of the band, including "Sunrise", which Mike wrote then, though we had never performed it as a band. The songs seem to flow one into another quite marvelously with the opening of "Sing To Jesus" and "When Sunday Comes" setting the table, with each subsequent piece connected to the next, reaching its destination with "Light of the World"(followed by "Sunrise", of course) .

We are quite amazed by what we were able to achieve here in the autumn of our life. It just sounds like a band that has its roots deep in the 70's & 80's, and yet it is vibrant with ever-new creativity and life still flowing as strong as it ever was; it sounds like: LIVING WATERS!

Track Name: Sing to Jesus
SING TO JESUS
by Mark A. Lajoie & David Bourque
Copyright 2011, RN SR 679-889

So, you say no one loves you
And no one seems to care
You've got some beau-ti-ful dreams in your heart
But you just don't dare
You're hun-gry, fright-ened, cold and a-lone
If you could die, you would
You need some-one you can real-ly trust in
Well, here's some News that's Good!

Sing to Je-sus when you're feel-ing low
He will show you which-a-way to go
He can bright-en up your dark-est night
Sing to Je-sus it-'ll be all right
Now try it

CHORUS
Al-le-lu-ia! Al-le-lu-ia! Al-le-lu-ia! Al-le-lu-ia!
Al-le-lu-ia! Al-le-lu-ia! Al-le-lu-ia! Al-le-lu-ia!

Sing to Je-sus when you're feel-ing blue
He will show you just-a-what to do
Je-sus knows a-bout hurt and pain
Sing to Je-sus it won't be the same
Now sing it

CHORUS

Sing to Je-sus don't be a-fraid
That's the rea-son we have been made
To praise our Fa-ther for-ev-er-more
Come and find out what you've got in store

Al-le-lu-ia! Al-le-lu-ia! (So come on)
Al-le-lu-ia! Al-le-lu-ia! (So come on)
Al-le-lu-ia! Al-le-lu-ia! (So come on)
Al-le-lu-ia! Al-le-lu-ia!

CHORUS

Alleluia!
You are the Place to go
Where joy will overflow
There is a Place for us to go
Our faith will lead us where
Our God will really care
One Cup and Bread to share!
One Cup and Bread to share

Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
…where Joy will overflow….!
Track Name: When Sunday Comes
When Sunday Comes
by Mike McBride
(copyright 2018 submitted & in process)
We watch the movies and the movie stars
We listen to the politicians
We’re force fed advertising
We're following the paparazzi
We raise our families in a world of our own
We know our children will adjust
We teach them everything we know
So they’ll grow up to be like us
And every day we go to work
We work ‘til we get paid
And that’s when Friday arrives
You know we’re ready for the weekend
We can hardly wait for Saturday
When Sunday comes we go to church
We pray to God for all it’s worth
We pray for peace on earth
And harmony… We pray for unity
When Sunday comes
We walk a fine line every day
How can we side with just one side?
We watch the talkers watch us
What is the truth and what’s the lie?
The politicians play the politics
The paparazzi interferes
The enemies are watching
Waiting for us to disappear
And every day we go to work
We work ‘til we get paid
And that’s when Friday arrives
You know we’re ready for the weekend
We can hardly wait for Saturday
When Sunday comes we go to church
We pray to God for all it’s worth
We pray for peace on earth
And harmony… We pray for unity
When Sunday comes
When Sunday comes we go to church
We pray to God for all it’s worth
We pray for peace on earth and harmony
We pray for you and me

COVENANT LOVE
by Mark A. Lajoie
Copyright 2011, RN SR 679-889
In the streets of New York Ci-ty
You're a kid with-out a home
And it is-n't ve-ry pret-ty
What they do to a kid a-lone
I'm the God-Man try-ing to reach you
Stand-ing near you in the night
I am Je-sus, let me teach you
'Cause it's hard to know what's right
Can you hear me?
Can you hear me?
Not much I can do here
Not much I can say
For though I'm stand-ing near
You're still so far a-way
And I can't say that I blame you
When it seems like no-thing's new
In the name of love, they shame you
They don't love you like I do
And I've got what it takes to prove it
I've got love wounds in my hands
I'm a Rock and they can't move it
And with you I'm gon-na stand
CHORUS
I've got a room a place that you can stay
I've got a room a man-sion-sized es-tate
I've got a room a place that you can stay
Fur-nished with care and built with Co-ve-nant Love
And there is so much you can do there
So much you can say
You'll know I'm stand-ing near
You'll know I AM the way
And there's no one there to blame you
For the things they did to you
In the name of love, they shamed you
They don't love you like I do
And I've got what it takes to prove it
I've got love wounds in my hands
I'm a Rock and they can't move it
And with you I'm gon-na stand
CHORUS
I've got a room a place that you can stay
I've got a room a man-sion-sized es-tate
I've got a room a place that you can stay
Fur-nished with care and built with Co-ve-nant Love
See me stand-ing here
With Co-ve-nant Love
See my hands and feet
Co-ve-nant Love
I was wound-ed in the Heart
Co-ve-nant Love
Laid it on the Cross for you
Laid it on the line
So come and take this Bread
Come and take this Wine
Eat my Bo-dy
Drink my Blood
This is my place for you
A brand New Co-ve-nant Love
And I've got what it takes to prove it
I've got love wounds in my hands
I'm a Rock and they can't move it
And with you I'm gon-na stand
CHORUS
I've got a room a place that you can stay
I've got a room a man-sion-sized es-tate
I've got a room a place that you can stay
Fur-nished with care and built with Co-ve-nant Love
Co-ve-nant Love
Co-ve-nant Love
Eat the Bread of the brand new Co-ve-nant Love
Drink the Blood of the brand new Co-ve-nant Love
Co-ve-nant Love
I've got a room!
Co-ve-nant Love
Track Name: Nothing But Love
Nothing But Love
Music and lyrics by Michael McBride
6/2018

You’d never do anything you thought would hurt me
You’d never turn on me, you’d not desert me
You say you’d never burn this longing yearning love in your heart
But you’re just making me promises you can’t keep
It’s all part of the master plan
It only took you just one kiss, then this betrayal began

You’ve got nothing to give
If you’ve got nothing to lose
Are you trading my life
If that’s what you choose?
I will always forgive
You know not what you do
I’ve got nothing but love for you, nothing but love for you
Nothing but love for you, nothing but love will do

Peter did it, three times. He didn’t want to
Judas did it too, but he knew he had to
They had to know, they had no choice
They were all part of the plan

But is it part of the plan that you forsake me?
I’m taking all I can stand until it breaks me!
With all my heart I command my soul into your loving hands

I’ve got nothing to give
If I’ve got nothing to lose
So I will give you my life
If that’s what you choose
I will always forgive
They know not what they do
I’ve got nothing but love for you, nothing but love for you
Nothing but love for you, nothing but love will do

Iscariot, Iscariot!
I will always forgive
You know not what you do
I’ve got nothing but love for you
Iscariot!
Nothing but love for you
Iscariot!
Nothing but love for you, nothing but love will do
Track Name: Anna Post Writing
by Mark A. Lajoie
Copyright 2011, RN SR 679-889

An-na Post got the news one day
when her hus-band turned and walked a-way
And as she saw the screen door slam
she could-n't e-ven cry for the man she loved

CHORUS
And now she's writ-ing for the pa-per
Al-though the mean-ing still es-capes her
An-na Post writ-ing
An-na Post writ-ing the news
An-na Post writ-ing
An-na Post writ-ing the news

So day by day she types a-way
though she does-n't have a word to say
She knows that it won't be the same
and so she plays the news-man's game

CHORUS
And now she's writ-ing for the pa-per
Al-though the mean-ing still es-capes her
An-na Post writ-ing
An-na Post writ-ing the news
An-na Post writ-ing
An-na Post writ-ing the news

Creep-ing crawl-ing cry-ing
Does-n't know she's dy-ing

She saw the Bi-ble ly-ing there
She took that book, she had to look
To sa-tis-fy the ques-tions in her brain
And then it all was crys-tal clear
She saw the an-swer to her prayer
And Je-sus healed her mi-ser-y and pain
And then she had to write it down
To tell her hus-band what she'd found
A-bout a love for us that ne-ver ends
She put the let-ter in the post-box
It was 'An-na Post-marked
All my love I am send-ing’

And now she's writ-ing in the let-ter
A-bout a way of life that's bet-ter
An-na Post writ-ing
An-na Post writ-ing Good News
An-na Post writ-ing
An-na Post writ-ing Good News
An-na Post writ-ing
An-na Post writ-ing Good News
Good news!
Good news!
Good news!

Read all a-bout it!

Track Name: When He Came Into My Life
“When He Came Into My Life”
by Daniel Gagnon & Dave Bourque, adapted by Mark Lajoie
copyright 2018 submitted and in process

When He came in-to my life He set my heart on fi-re
Loos-ened the bonds and set me free with His love
Yes, He came in-to my life with tongues of burn-ing fi-re
Lord Je-sus, my sa-vior I know that I'm read-y to give

He asked me if I was will-ing to give com-plete-ly
For the road is hard and filled with mi-se-ry
"Don't wor-ry, my son, for I will al-ways be with you"
Lord Je-sus, my sa-vior I know that I'm read-y to give

The dark-ness is gone and now I see the light
The blind-ness in my eyes is read-y for sight
With fi-re inside my heart I know I can fight
Lord Je-sus, my sa-vior I know that I'm read-y to give

Well, He can come in-to your life and set your heart on fi-re
Loos-en the bonds and set you free with His love
Well, He can come into your life if that's what you de-si-re
Lord Je-sus, my sa-vior I know that I'm read-y to give
Lord Je-sus, my sa-vior I know that I'm read-y to give
Lord Je-sus, my sa-vior I know that I'm read-y to give
Track Name: Let It Reign
Let It Reign Michael McBride - April 2018 Copyright in process

Sundays, I take a walk and go to church where I would go when I was just a kid
I’d say, nobody noticed me, but I could see the wrong in what I might a did
The altar call is all I need to wake me up
And now I fall onto my knees to drink this cup
I pray with the living and here we will pray for the dead
We pray wash away our sins while we drink this wine, we eat this bread
Oh, oh, oh hold on, this love is a hurricane and it’s about to rain

I was down and out and I was feeling low and I could only go from there to above
I was hiding inside, holding in all this pain
I thirst for water, give me living water, living water wash my sins all away
Hey, I want this love, this love that will sustain, let It reign, oh

Outside, the rain comes along from crashing clouds above, oh
Thunder and light blow up the sky, oh
This storm is crushing this dry and thirsty crave for love, oh
Rain down and wash our sins away, oh
Let It reign, let Your love reign

Make way for the future, it takes you away from the past
Sometimes life hits like a tidal wave
It goes so fast, so make it last
Oh, oh, oh hold on, when life brings a hurricane, let it rain, let it rain

When I look at my-self and at o-thers
It seems that no one real-ly bo-thers to love, to love
But when I pray I can see God re-veal-ing
And now I'm real-ly be-liev-ing we'll be the Light of the World

Sing Ho-san-na, Ho-san-na to Je-sus
He's the One who is go-ing to lead us to life, to life
(So lift your hearts)
So lift your hearts and your voi-ces to hea-ven
Je-sus calls us to be his lea-ven and salt, the Light of the World

I can see e-very-bo-dy re-viv-ing
I can see e-very-bo-dy striv-ing to love, to love
So lift your hearts and your voi-ces to hea-ven
Je-sus calls us to be his lea-ven and salt, the Light of the World

Sing Ho-san-na, Ho-san-na to Je-sus
He's the One who is go-ing to lead us to life, to life
So lift your hearts and your voi-ces to hea-ven
Je-sus calls us to be his lea-ven and salt, the Light of the World

Hey! I've got some-thing I want to say
You may lis-ten or per-haps you may not
Just count the cost

Sing Ho-san-na, Ho-san-na to Je-sus
He's the One who is go-ing to lead us to life, to life
So lift your hearts and your voi-ces to hea-ven
Je-sus calls us to be his lea-ven and salt, the Light of the World

[lead]

Eye's not seen and ear's not heard
What God's re-vealed to us in his Word
Have you heard?

Sing Ho-san-na, Ho-san-na to Je-sus
He's the One who is go-ing to lead us to life, to life
So lift your hearts and your voi-ces to hea-ven
Je-sus calls us to be his lea-ven and salt, the Light of the World

Shine the light! Shine the light!
Shine the light! (of Je-sus) Shine the light! (of Je-sus)
Shine the light! (of Je-sus) Shine the light! (of Je-sus)
Shine the light! (of Je-sus) Shine the light! (of Je-sus)

Track Name: Sunrise
{Copyright 2018 submitted and in process}
Sunrise in the morning
I look into your eyes
I wonder what the future holds
I see a story still untold
'til sunrise
The sun burns away the daylight
We watch the time fly by
We wonder how it went so fast
We thought that time would last and last and last and last 'til sunrise
Sunset in the evening
The moon glows full and bright
I'm holding you and it feels so right
Unfolding into the night
'til sunrise
All the rocky mountain rivers
All the ocean, seas and shivers
Can't keep me away
All the weather in the winter
All the cold can't keep me from you
Baby you know it's true
I'll be here with you
Can't keep me away
And only the time can take me
'cause I'm still growing old
'til sunrise
Sunrise in the morning
I look into your eyes
I'm here with you 'till the ending
I was here with you from the start
till the Son-rise
Sunrise
