Track Name: Are You Not Like Me
Oh wretched man that I am
Who can save me
From this body

Are you not like me?
Flesh for flesh
Bone for bone
Do you know me?

Do you know me?
Track Name: Blood Brother
My brother's blood is crying out
Crying up to God from the ground
Rejected for my offering
His blood to mark my wandering

Lord I can hear you in the fire
The fire consuming in the tree
My questions burning in the leaves
And crying up from blood soaked ground

Am I my brother's keeper now?
Track Name: Mana
Oh you of little faith
Look to the birds
Oh you of little faith
Look to the fields

How much more than they
Will I feed you
How much more than they
Will I clothe you

Oh you of little faith
I will provide
Oh you of little faith
I will rain bread from the sky

And with the dew you'll find
Your fears relieved
Tomorrow once again
You'll look to me in need

Cast all your burdens at his feet
Your Father knows just what you need
Each morning his promise will repeat

Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow
For tomorrow will be anxious for itself

Sufficient for the day is its own trouble
Track Name: Tis So Sweet To Trust in Jesus
Oh how sweet to trust in Jesus
Just to trust his cleansing blood
Just to rest upon his promise
Rest beneath that healing flood.

It is so sweet to trust in Jesus
And to take him as the Word
That declares the sinner righteous
Gives us faith to call him Lord

Precious Jesus
Give us grace to trust you more
