Wintertime is on the way Time for you to take the time Think of all the wrong you've done Every sin is like a crime See the Blessings in your life Every blessing comes from God Think about the Sacrifice Of God's Only Begotten Son You think you can work your way to Heaven? Redemption comes through the Blood of Christ Time to think of the future Time to think about Christ I remember that time by the swimming pool Around about 1997 I was lost, I was playing the fool I didn't know my true home was in Heaven Blessings poured into my life Now I know they were from God For I believed the Sacrifice Of God's Only Begotten Son Time to come to Repentance Time to come to Him in Faith Time to think of the future Time to think about Christ You're going to meet Jesus One way or the other The Bible says that every knee shall bow Time to think of the future Time to think about Christ Time to think about Christ Time to think about Christ

I already see that you're turning Coming towards the light Though when it truly comes It's a moment in time Repentance can be a long road It can take a long time to turn Though when you truly call It's a moment of truth Repentance in a Salvation context Is a moment of truth I'm not afraid of anything this world throws at me The Lord above who has all power He will protect me Giant angels stand over our house Guarding us as we sleep He who knows the beginning from the end Will protect His sheep Repentance in a Salvation context Is a moment of truth

Skyline 04:40
Sometimes I look to the skyline And I think about when Jesus will return Skyline I look to the skyline And I think about when Jesus will return Though it's always nice To think about the day When He will return This time here to stay Where will you be? When Jesus returns Where will you be on that special day? When the Lord Jesus Christ comes back again Where will you go? Where will you be? When He returns all eyes shall see Where will you be? When Jesus returns Where will you be on that special day? When the Lord Jesus Christ comes back again Where will you go? Where will you be? When He returns all eyes shall see Where will you go? When Jesus returns He's coming again, He's coming again The Lord Jesus Christ is coming again Over the mountains, gather the crowds Up in the sky, 'He cometh with clouds' He's coming again, He's coming again The Lord Jesus Christ is coming again The Saints will be thrilled the day is at hand He'll light up the sky, just as He planned He's coming again, He's coming again The Lord Jesus Christ is coming again Over the mountains, gather the crowds Up in the sky, 'He cometh with clouds' Sometimes I look to the skyline And I think about when Jesus will return Skyline I look to the skyline And I think about when Jesus will return Though it's always nice To think about the day When He will return This time here to stay Where will you be? When Jesus returns

When the sun turns out his light that's the time we say goodnight Rest in Christ now darling The sun will never go away And don't you worry darling The morrow's on the way. When the stars replace the light That's the time we say goodnight Rest in Christ now darling The sun will never go away And don't you worry darling The morrow's on the way. Rest in Christ now darling The Son will never go away And don't you worry darling He'll be back someday.

Sleeping Lady fall into the night Sleeping Lady may all your dreams be bright Let all those scary thoughts and fears fade away You have security the morrows on the way And you know that I will always stay Every night and every single day Sleeping Lady hear the angels sing Shape your thoughts around what the Lord will bring For He will protect your body, mind and soul And so repair yourself to start the morning whole For you have a role Heaven is the goal Sleeping Lady fall into the night Sweep the leaves gently I'll hold your body tight Let all intrusive thoughts harmlessly fade away As you drift into sleep I'll be here anyway Every night and every single day I'll be here come what may

Brother I have heard you speak of how you're saved Saved by Grace through Faith in Christ Saved for all Eternity But Brother there is so much more that you can do For there is work that must be done to reach the lost that they might see For the harvest is ripe And the workers are few God uses imperfect people to bring about His Plans God uses imperfect people I hope you understand He can use you as He used me Rewards for all Eternity For the harvest is ripe And the workers are few So step on down Sister how I love to hear your testimony You speak of how you're saved by Grace, Grace through Faith in Jesus Christ And Sister there is so much work that you can do Sow the seeds and reach the lost Help them see their lives transformed For the harvest is ripe And the workers are few God uses imperfect people to bring about His Plans God uses imperfect people I hope you understand He can use you as He used me How can you ignore the plea? For the harvest is ripe And the workers are few So step on down Sinner won't you come today to Calvary? And realise that you fall short Understand Christ paid it all And should you repent and believe You would gain eternal life Enter in God's Family. Well the harvest is ripe And the workers are few God uses imperfect people to bring about His plans God uses imperfect people I hope you understand He can use you as He used me Rewards that last eternity For the harvest is ripe And the workers are few So step on down

Psalm 117 02:29
O praise the Lord, all ye nations: praise him, all ye people. For his merciful kindness is great toward us: and the truth of the Lord endureth for ever. Praise ye the Lord.

Set me as a seal upon thine heart, as a seal upon thine arm: for love is strong as death; jealousy is cruel as the grave: the coals thereof are coals of fire, which hath a most vehement flame. Many waters cannot quench love, neither can the floods drown it: if a man would give all the substance of his house for love, it would utterly be contemned.

Step outside 03:21
This morning I was watching as you rose You didn't seem yourself you seemed quite closed You didn't notice that the light was shining through or that the sky outside was blue Did you somehow forget just who you are? Or that you shine just like a star The happiness you always bring The way you brighten everything Won't you show a little gratitude my friend? For the Lord has granted you this brand new day Everything will work out in the end So won't you share with me this brand new day? And through it all you've been so strong On countless times helped me along I guess it's my time to be strong now As you take the time to work out how Won't you show a little gratitude my friend? For the Lord has granted you this brand new day Everything will work out in the end So won't you share with me this brand new day? So come on let's step outside We'll feel alive Come on let's step outside We'll feel alive Feel alive Won't you show a little gratitude my friend? For the Lord has granted you this brand new day Everything will work out in the end So won't you share with me this brand new day?

Psalm 136 03:48
O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever. O give thanks unto the God of gods: for his mercy endureth for ever. O give thanks to the Lord of lords: for his mercy endureth for ever. To him who alone doeth great wonders: for his mercy endureth for ever. To him that by wisdom made the heavens: for his mercy endureth for ever. To him that stretched out the earth above the waters: for his mercy endureth for ever. To him that made great lights: for his mercy endureth for ever: The sun to rule by day: for his mercy endureth for ever: The moon and stars to rule by night: for his mercy endureth for ever. To him that smote Egypt in their firstborn: for his mercy endureth for ever: And brought out Israel from among them: for his mercy endureth for ever: With a strong hand, and with a stretched out arm: for his mercy endureth for ever. To him which divided the Red sea into parts: for his mercy endureth for ever: And made Israel to pass through the midst of it: for his mercy endureth for ever: But overthrew Pharaoh and his host in the Red sea: for his mercy endureth for ever. To him which led his people through the wilderness: for his mercy endureth for ever. To him which smote great kings: for his mercy endureth for ever: And slew famous kings: for his mercy endureth for ever: Sihon king of the Amorites: for his mercy endureth for ever: And Og the king of Bashan: for his mercy endureth for ever: And gave their land for an heritage: for his mercy endureth for ever: Even an heritage unto Israel his servant: for his mercy endureth for ever. Who remembered us in our low estate: for his mercy endureth for ever: And hath redeemed us from our enemies: for his mercy endureth for ever. Who giveth food to all flesh: for his mercy endureth for ever. O give thanks unto the God of heaven: for his mercy endureth for ever.

Psalm 150 01:30
Praise ye the Lord. Praise God in his sanctuary: praise him in the firmament of his power. Praise him for his mighty acts: praise him according to his excellent greatness. Praise him with the sound of the trumpet: praise him with the psaltery and harp. Praise him with the timbrel and dance: praise him with stringed instruments and organs. Praise him upon the loud cymbals: praise him upon the high sounding cymbals. Let every thing that hath breath praise the Lord. Praise ye the Lord.

Look at you standing there grinning your grin Alive on the outside but still dead within I thought that by now you would have found truth But you don't have faith so you don't have proof You're a man of no charity You're a man of no charity I don't write this song to try and be cruel But look at you friend you're playing the fool Chasing the money is all very well But you can't discern Heaven from Hell You're a man of no charity You're a man of no charity One day you'll know One day you'll see One day you'll meet Jesus Down on one knee You've got to change In your big house, all by yourself So self absorbed it's not good for your health You think you're enlightened, just misunderstood Look at your fruit, none of it's good You're a man of no charity You're a man of no charity Look at you standing there grinning your grin Alive on the outside but still dead within I thought that by now you would have found truth But you don't have faith so you don't have proof You're a man of no charity You're a man of no charity

Around about a mile from here Just turn down Deviot Road A place that is peaceful a place that is free A place where the river flows into the sea I'll take you there myself some day We'll turn down Deviot Road A place in the country wild and free Surrounded by sky, serenity! I praise the Lord. There's nowhere I'd rather be Nowhere that I feel so free The stone, the river, the trees The summertime breeze Rachels Waterfall Sunlight has brushed with gold The perennial river that flows Forest behind us water ahead Everlasting joy is where I'm being led By 10 am sunlight has cleared The last of the morning dew The ruins behind us like yesterdays pain Will never bind us or hurt us again I praise the Lord For there's nowhere I'd rather be Nowhere do I feel so free The stone, the river, the trees The summertime breeze Rachels Waterfall

Town of Gold 03:01
In the warm blue light, sunny afternoon Driving through the valley that we now call our new home Sunlight on the pastures, as the river flows Mountains in the distance as we drive by Tamar Rose And everything's a little bit special here And everything's a little bit sweeter here Town of Gold Far from city life, away from all the crowds The Church stands in the high street as if to touch the clouds I turn to you my country wife, you smile at me again We're there by the bakery on Jubilee Lane And everything's a little bit better here And everything's a little bit special here And everything's a little bit sweeter here Town of Gold I always need a place to go A place to just be free A town that's full of friendly folks A great community In the warm blue light, sunny afternoon Driving through the valley that we now call our new home Sunlight on the pastures, as the river flows Mountains in the distance as we drive by Tamar Rose And everything's a little bit special here And everything's a little bit sweeter here And I thank God that He brought me here Town of Gold Town of Gold

North, north East Way up top of this great flowing state They say it's a hard town but it's a good town Drive right on by Past the Baptist Church those red brick walls Onto Low Head as we journey north Don't be discouraged God He loves the humble of this world Just keep on coming towards the light Green, rolling fields As the river flows along the bank There I have felt God's presence Walk by the seashore East Beach always seems so beautiful Praise God that we are here as we journey north Don't be discouraged God He loves the humble of this world Have faith, trust Christ as you journey north

God made it all. Come with me tonight Down to Swan Point Come with me tonight To Paper Beach Road Swan Point and Paper Beach Road

about

Hello friends,
I am pleased to present to you my 6th album, By the Tamar.

The album was produced remotely at Wimpole recording studios, Melbourne. With thanks to Derek Stagg at Bijou music and recording studio here in the Tamar Valley, Tasmania where I was able to record instruments and vocals and send through to Carlos 'Maestro' Ramsey over at Wimpole.

I hope you enjoy the album! it's a bit rough around the edges, but is organic, made with love and very real.

Best regards
Phil
