2004. Camp Tapawingo, the Adirondacks, New York - Summer theme: Contentment in Christ.


Thank you—you are so faithful
Though I fall, you’re always grace-full
Forgive me for putting idols above you
I need your help just to love you, Lord

Find rest, O my soul
Content yourself in Christ alone
For his love never fails
And he will never
He will never
He will never let you go

I’ve lived for too long this way
In pride, I cheapen your grace
But you are near to the heart that’s humble
So at your cross I crumble, Lord

Building monuments to me
I’m left unsatisfied
All that’s left are emptiness
And dregs of restless of pride
I will rise and go to him
Who fills the empty full
There I find he satisfies
He satisfies my soul

Behold, you make all things new
Jesus, come and make me new, too
My heart is dry and desert thirsty
I cast myself upon your mercy, Lord


Jesus, how I love you; Jesus, how I need you
Jesus, I will cling to you
When all around has gone away, you

Jesus, I still love you; Jesus, I still need you
Jesus, I’m going to cling to you
When my cold heart has gone astray, you

I will cling to the Rock that was cleft for me
I will sing of the Tree that brought life to me
Let me share in the brokenness of suffering
That I might come to understand
The beauty of your broken hands

Jesus, how I love you; Jesus, how I need you
Jesus, I’m going to cling to you
When my cold heart has gone astray
When my lips forget how to pray
When there’s no light left in the day
When all around have gone away, you
