The Willi are back! We've grown a lot in the past couple years, and our music and lyrics have grown too. This album stays true to our family harmony roots, while at the same time foraying into contemporary christian, folk, celtic, blues/jazz, orchestral, and other epic goodness. Above all, the music is dedicated to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Sola Deo Gloria - For the Glory of God!

Track Name: Minstrel
Once upon a time in a land far away
Where the flowers sing and dragons play
A young man walked on the highway
All all alone
He carried no satchel or sack
Just a guitar slung across his back

Well his clothes looked strange to the people in the town
They gathered to gawk for miles around
Who was the strange looking dude
Walking alone
The crowd grew and it didn't take long
The man sang a little song

I am a stranger in a strange land
These roads I walk are far away from home
But I do labor for my king
And of his love and goodness I will sing
I am a minstrel

Well he sang about hope and amazing grace
He sang about running to win the race
He spoke about a love that indwells your heart
So you'll never be alone
Such is the beauty of my king
Give him your everything

I set the book down put in my daughter in bed
Thought about the tale I just read
I too have a message to sing
That I'm never alone
God give me the strength to carry Your name
Your Word I'll always proclaim
Track Name: How Could I Come
How could I come before thee
Awesome and holy
Man before his Maker
And yet I come before Your throne
And worship You alone
It's only through the Savior

You've made a way
For me to come and praise

Holy is the Lamb of God
Worthy is His Name
He who died and rose again
Blessing and honor and strength are His forever

Raise a shout and clap your hands
He is the great I AM
Alpha and Omega
He reached down from eternity
And saved a wretch like me
Now I serve a new master
Track Name: Midnight Jam
Sittin' out on my back porch
Guitar by my side
It's just you and me Lord
On this warm Summer night

The stars come out one by one
Twinkling in their own way
You know them by name O Lord
You put them in their place

The beauty of Your creation
Is wondrous to my eyes
I open my mouth to praise You
But the words they feel so dry

So I pick and I play away to the
Rhythm of the swaying breeze
Figure I might as well join in
The glorious symphony

It's a midnight jam
A midnight jam
The songs of the crickets
Echo through the night
A midnight jam
A midnight jam
The moon is brightly shining as a
Luminous spotlight
Track Name: You Will Never Leave Me
Thus far You have led me my Lord
Through the trials and storms You've been faithful
And even though I don't know where to go
One thing I will not forget

I'm humbled by Your grace in my life
You're molding me like clay in Your hands
And even though it seems there is no light
One thing I will always remember

You will never leave me
You will never forsake me
You know the plans You have for me
Plans for a hope and a future

The universe obeys Your master plan
Your purposes in me will be fulfilled
And even when I do not understand
In this I will be confident
Track Name: Return to the Lord
O nation where did you go wrong?
Why have you stayed in all this wickedness so long?
Where's the truth that once reigned in your land?
Why have you strayed from the Master's hand?

Return to the Lord
He's ready to save
Return to the Lord
Find mercy today
Return to the Lord
Find rest for the weary
Return to the Lord
Before it's too late

O America my heart mourns for you
My beloved country is heading down the tubes
Very soon the Lord's coming again
And when He comes He will judge the nations

Well we're in deep trouble in the land of the free
Culture of death, society of me
Induldging every one of our own perverted lusts
Sodom and Gomorrah got nothing on us
Republican, Democrat, we're all just the same
No one stands for the truth of God's Word and His name
Christian nation they say, yeah we're puffed up with pride
But there's nothing but empty wickedness inside
I'm down on my knees like the prophet Jeremiah
I'm crying out Lord with the words of Nehemiah
Forgive us the sins that our fathers have made
Forgive us our sins before it's too late!
Give us clean hearts all over this land
Restore Your church that's building on sand
Please hear me Lord, I love my country
Send a wave of revival from sea to shining sea

Lord heal our land
Lord heal our land

Send us Your mercy, Send us Your grace
Show forth Your power all over this place
It's not about us, Lord it's all about You
Receive all the glory that is Your due
Track Name: Resting Place
You are my resting place
I find my peace in You
You are my hiding place
I dwell safely in You

You have been my strength at all times
You're the rock on which I stand

You are my Father
You hold me in your hands
You are my Savior
The greatest of all friends

You have been my strength at all times
You're the rock on which I stand

And when the storms of life come crashing in
I will not be moved
The wicked plan and plot against my soul
But You are my God
Track Name: For the Glory of God
Your love surrounds me with endless mercies
O how Your grace abounds!
How can I repay the holy King of Kings?
Let my life be an offering

For the glory of God
For the glory of God
Every word every breath
Every step of the way
I give it all for the glory of God

Now one purpose, Now one aim
Lift high the name of Jesus Christ
More of You, less of me
Let my anthem always be

To You be glory
To You be honor
To You be glory forever
