DAVID PADEN’S SONG
David is a young friend of mine who loves Jesus, leads worship in his church, and
writes awesome worship songs. I asked him if I could put one of them on my site.
It's called…
Where I Want To Be

SUMMARIES, SITUATIONS, AND SHEETS OF SOME SONGS:

Here you’ll find a couple dozen very simple worship songs that the Lord has given me
over the years. If you take the time to listen to them, you’ll wholeheartedly agree that He
gave some of them to ME with which to worship Him, that is, He might not have given
them to anyone else to hear. Then again, some of them might actually be edifying to you
and even “sing-able” for you to express your heart to Him. If so, go for it. If you can’t sing
along, hopefully at least the truth of the words will stick with you and strengthen your
relationship with Jesus.

I’m very aware that my musical abilities are extremely limited. I have no delusions about
the quality of the sound of my voice or my guitar playing. I’m a pastor/teacher who loves to
meditate on, and teach God’s Word in whatever form I can - including song. My son, Luke
came and recorded these songs in a living room with just one-take apiece. I asked him if
he could make me sound like Johnny Cash. He declined to try. But he did sing and a lay
down some instrumental tracks on some of the songs. Our incredibly talented friend, Art
did some percussion too.


Cleanse Me, Lord This might be the earliest of all these songs (1985 or so). My old friend, Jeff
Jaquess and I collaborated on this one. (He’s a “real” musician, singer, and worship leader. I
dabble.) Anyway, it expresses the intent of my heart to be “well” before the Lord in a state called,
“Holiness.” The “Break me…” verse actually came several years later as I was enduring yet another
breaking in my life. Some have told me that this verse is unsing-able from the vantage point of
being simply too convicting. Who wants to sing, “crucify my flesh I pray”!

[Written with Jeff Jaquess]

C           F     G      Am                          F

F                              G                 C

Fill me to overflowing now

F                              G                 C

Fill me to overflowing now



Close To The Brokenhearted
This is based on a passage in Psalms that is one of my all-time favorites – “close to the
brokenhearted.” He’s proven that true in my life over and over and over again. It seems that
breaking our hearts is one way He gets in deeper. On this occasion I was feeling not only
brokenhearted, but like the three Jewish boys, in the firey furnace, hoping to see the Fourth Man
walking around the fire with me. He is, and I do!

D        Bm               G         A

You’re close to the brokenhearted

D        Bm               G               A

You’re near when my life falls apart

D          Bm            G            A     

It’s your love that’ll get me started hoping

D             Bm      G              A

There’s a way through this dark



D  A  Bm  G  A

Mercy, mercy

D  A  Bm  G  A

Help me, help me



D        Bm               G         A

You’re close when I’m in the fire

D        Bm               G         A

You’re near when the flames overwhelm

D        Bm               G         A

It’s your grace that’ll get me started hoping

D        Bm               G         A

There’s a way out of this hell



D  A  Bm  G  A

Mercy, mercy

D  A  Bm  G  A

Help me, help me

D  A  Bm  G  A

I see (you) with me, I see (you) with me



Rend the Heavens
I was praying many years ago that God would reveal Himself to our church, bring many into
relationship with Himself, heal and deliver the hurting, and launch many into strong lifestyles of
discipleship and mission. I think the Lord pointed me to Isaiah’s prayer in the 64th chapter. This
prayer of mine sort of came out. May it be your heartfelt and passionate prayer too.


C                      F             G                            Am/G

Oh, that You’d rend the heavens and come down

F                G                    F            G

Make the mountains shake and the nations quake

F            G                           Am

Oh, that You’d rend the heavens and come down

F           G                     F-C

Hallowed be Thy Name in all the earth

F                    C              Bb                      G

Come down, come down and make Your Name known

F                  C               F                          G

Come down, come down and make Your Name known



Holy Spirit, Come
I know that God is omnipresent, He’s everywhere always. But there seems to be a special and more
specific expression of His Presence (notice the capital “P”). You can see it throughout the Bible, that
when God “shows up,” stuff happens – people change, the miraculous occurs, help arrives. It seems
to me that oftentimes He “comes” by invitation only; when we want Him to come, and say so.
Apparently, He likes to be asked.


D                 A        G                 A

Come, Oh come, Holy Spirit come

D                    A

Move, please move

G                         A

May your will be done

Bm         F#m

Deliver and heal

G                   A

Re-ignite our zeal

G                A                    D - A

Holy Spirit, come, please come



I Was Glad When They Said Unto Me
I was teaching our church about the set of Psalms that are called, “Songs of Ascents.” I call them
“Poems for Pilgrims,” because the Israelites sang them on their annual pilgrimage up to Jerusalem
for feast days. This song, which is derived from those Psalms is a direct summons (don’t think
summons in terms of being called to judicial court, but rather to the courts of the Lord!) to come to
the gathering of people before the Lord. The Lord gave me this song to encourage us pilgrims.

G-F-C-D

G                           F                      C               D

I was glad when they said unto me, “Let’s go… Let’s go!”

G                           F                            C                 D

I was glad when they said unto me, “You’ll know… You’ll know!”

G                      F                                  C                D

Let’s go up to the house of the Lord and praise Him there

G              F                   C                           D

Let’s go up together and His life we’ll share

C                D                G            F-C-D

Let’s go… Let’s go… Let’s go…



Jesus My Friend and Guide
I remember the night this song just came. I stayed long after everyone had left one of our evening
worship services. I found myself at the church piano (I know a few chords) worshipping. This
elemental song just came. Honestly, I think this is my favorite little song He’s given me. I says what
I mean, and I mean it when I sing it – in Him I’m satisfied!

C                G                 Am/G

You’re the first and the last, You’re Living One

C               G                       Am/G

You were dead, now alive, You’re the only Son

F               G                     F                         G              C     G

Alpha and Omega - Who is, Who was, and Who is to come



C             F                 Am/G

Jesus my Friend and Guide

F                     G      

No one’s like You, Lord

F                    G

No one’s like You

C                G      Am/G

In You I’m satisfied

F                G                    F  C

There is no one like You, Lord

F                 G

(There is no one like You…)



Please Accept My Sacrifice of Praise
Over the years I’ve gone on periodic prayer retreats by myself in a cabin in the mountains for a few
days. It probably averages about once every year and a half, and is usually accompanied by some
fasting. I always bring my guitar along to these and sing my heart out to Him. Some of the times
He's given me new songs to sing to Him. This almost embarrassingly simply song came from one of
those retreats. I guess when I get alone with God for a protracted period, I’m inclined to get more in
touch with my feebleness. This little chorus expressed my heart  that day, hoping I could somehow
touch Him with my meager offering of praise.


A                              D                 E

Please accept my sacrifice of praise

A                              D                         E

Take this meager cry and add your grace

F#m                   D         E                  A

Set my heart aflame again with love for only You

F#m                              D

Come and break this hardened soul

A                         D - E

And take what is your due



When Kindness Appeared
I was meditating on Titus 3:4-5,and was appreciating His grace to save me in spite of my sin,
selfishness, silliness, and stupidity. This simple song came. I’ve since added a chorus that I
borrowed from an old André Crouch song. If it didn’t make it in the recording, just imagine singing,
“Thank you, Lord – I just want to thank you, I just want to thank you!”

Em                         Bm                         C                 D       

When the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared

Em                   Bm                         C                                          D

He saved us not because of righteous things we have done

G            D               Em                   D

But because His mercy and because of His grace

G                 D                       Em                       D

And because he just loves us that he came to take our place



I Think I Can Feel Your Pain
I was on a prayer and writing retreat at my friends’ house in Twain Harte, California writing my
memoir from an extremely tough two-year period of my life. I had lost my wife, my ministry, and my
health (I was diagnosed with bone marrow cancer) all within months. My friends started calling me,
“Job.” I was writing a chapter in the memoir called, “The Sufferers Club.” I was struggling to explain
the concept of what Paul calls, “the fellowship of Christ’s sufferings.” I just couldn’t quite say it the
way I wanted to. It’s probably mostly because I don’t entirely understand the intimacy with Jesus
(The President of the Sufferers Club) that can be catalyzed by one’s own suffering. I only know that I’
ve experienced something of the Lord that beforehand was completely unknown to me. It’s still very
much of a mystery to me, but I think I’m getting it more and more as time goes on.

I wrote in the memoir… I know that your suffering enables you to identify with me, and I thank you
for that. But I am coming to believe that my suffering puts me in a position in which I may have a
kind of fellowship with you that can be precious. When I’m hurting it’s like I have something in
common with you. I’ve known that you are “close to the broken hearted,” and I have experienced that
nearness over and over. But this experience seems more than that. It’s not just that you are close to
me when I’m suffering, but that I am close to you. It’s not just that you are feeling my pain, but if I am
not mistaken about this, I’m feeling some of yours. And when I do (this is all a bit mystical and kind
of Catholic for me), my sufferings seem more sensible, almost desirable. If they press me closer to
your heart and give me a better idea of what you felt as human, and even feel as God, then I can
endure.

When wrestling with this concept, how to understand it and how to communicate it, I picked up my
guitar and wrote this simple song. It helped me. And may you find your own way to his heart.

My young friend David Paden did the recording on this song. Thanks, David!


G   D           Em         C
I think I can feel your pain sometimes
G   D           C
I think I can feel
G        D               Em        C
It seems as if your heart is mine

I think this is real
D                   G          D             G - Em
You were abandoned, rejected by men, and cried
C             D               G        
I think I can feel your pain                                                
D                   G          D             G - Em
You were forsaken, discarded and then you died
C             D               Em
I think I can feel your pain
C             D               G
I think I can feel the same
G  D                C              Em
I’ll take up my cross and follow you
G  D                  G
I’ll take up my the cross
G  D                C              Em
I’ll carry my cross and die with you
G  D                  G
I’ll carry my cross



I Will Not Give Up
I was on a prayer and writing retreat at my friends’ house in Twain Harte, California writing my
memoir about an extremely tough two-year period of my life. I had lost my wife, my ministry, and my
health (I was diagnosed with bone marrow cancer) all within months. I was spending a lot of time
writing my memoirs about these difficulties and praying for direction about the next season of my
life. I’ve been feeling for quite some time that he wanted me to move to the Mission District of San
Francisco to somehow serve the poor and make disciples. Frankly, though I’m excited about it, I’m
pretty scared to actually go and do it. (Maybe by the time you read this I will have made the move
and begun finding places of service. To date, it’s still in the ‘dream state.’)

Anyway, I was thinking about the fears I was experiencing about my uncertain health and the
prospect of living alone in The City (and not really the nicest part of it). The story from the Gospels
about Jesus and the disciples crossing the Sea of Galilee in the storm came to my mind. They were
obviously scared too, but Jesus had said, “Let’s go to the other side,” so, with his encouragement,
they made it to the other side. If they could work through their fears and not be paralyzed by them,
so could I. It’s with that background in mind that I wrote this simple song:  I Will Not Give Up.

My young friend, and real musician, David Paden did the recording as well as sang and played the
guitar on this song. Thanks, David!

Well You Love Me
I was on a prayer and writing retreat at my friends’ house in Twain Harte, California writing my
memoir from an extremely tough two-year period of my life. I had lost my wife, my ministry, and my
health (I was diagnosed with bone marrow cancer) all within months. My friends started calling me,
“Job.” I was feeling God’s love a lot one certain day and was really grateful about it, so I wrote this
chorus.

By the way, in case you were wondering, the line:  Well you love me well you love me well I know…
does have a double meaning. You can figure it out, right?

My young friend, and real musician, David Paden did the recording as well as sang and played the
guitar on this song. Thanks, David!

To Zion
Though this song comes from an earlier Psalm (Psalm 84, which is not part of the Pilgrim
Poems), it expresses the same value of pilgrimage and people on their way to a better place.
This particular Psalm tells us that in order to get where we’re going (like the Jews going to
Jerusalem from all over the country) we’ll have to go through treacherous and frightening
regions (i.e. the valley of weeping). But the journey is worth it because we’re going up to Zion
(the place where God is and where God rules)!


D                                               G                                     D                                A

Blessed are those whose strength is in you, who have set their hearts

D                                               G                                     D                                A

Blessed are those whose strength is in you, who have set their hearts

D                     G                   D                  A

On pilgrimage to Zion, we are going up to Zion!

D         G                        D                  A

To Zion to Zion, we are going up to Zion!



D                                               G                                        D                               A

As we pass through the Valley of Weeping, we make it a place of springs

D                                               G                                        D                               A

As we pass through the Valley of Weeping, we make it a place of springs

D               G                        D                  A

To Zion to Zion, we are going up to Zion!

D               G                        D                  A

To Zion to Zion, we are going up to Zion!



D                                               G                                        D                               A

Now we go from strength to strength, till each appears before God

D                                               G                                        D                               A

Now we go from strength to strength, till each appears before God

D              G                         D                  A

In Zion in Zion, we are going up to Zion

D               G                        D                  A

To Zion to Zion, we are going up to Zion!



Lord Jesus, Come Quickly
As I said earlier, I don’t think we sing or talk about the second coming of Jesus nearly enough
these days. We’re either so comfortable or have lost all hope of Him returning to fix this
broken world. Nevertheless, He is coming – with fire in His eyes. I was meditating on His
“glorious appearing” one day, and studying 1 Thessalonians 4, and this simple chorus came
to me. Maranatha!


G                              Em               C                                   D

For the Lord Himself will come down with a loud command and the voice

G                        Em         

Of the archangel and the trumpet call

C                                   D

And the dead in Christ will rise first

Em                               C                                   D

We will be caught up together with Him in the clouds (2x)

Em                              C

So we will be with the Lord

G-Em

Forever…

C                         D

Maranatha come quickly (4x)



Mary, Don’t Be Afraid
Obviously this song came at Christmas time. It’s not so much a worship song, but it definitely
inspires me to worship Him Who came to “seek us, find us, save us, and take us to be with
Him forever.”


Cm7   Bb              G7

Mary, don’t be afraid

Cm7   Bb              F/A

Mary, don’t be afraid

Cm7                    Bb

You’ll be with child and give birth

F/A

To the one we’re looking for

Cm7   Bb              F/A

Oh, Mary, don’t be afraid

Cm7   Bb              F/A

Mary, don’t be afraid

Cm7   Bb              G7

Mary, don’t be afraid

Cm7               Bb              F/A

He will be great and be called the Son of the Most High

Cm7   Bb              F/A

Oh, Mary, don’t be afraid

Cm7   Bb              F/A

Mary, don’t be afraid



F             Eb      Bb       Gm

Call Him Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus

F                        Eb              Bb                Gm

For He will seek us and find us and save us and take us

Cm7    F/A           Cm7   Bb            F/A

To be with Him forever – oh, Mary, don’t be afraid



I Saw Heaven Standing Open
Have you noticed that we sing so little these days about His Return? Is it because we’ve lost
hope while waiting? Or is it that we’re so comfortable here that we don’t want Him to come
and disrupt our good lives? In our church we were studying through the Book of Revelation
and it seemed to me that the 19th chapter gives us the clearest picture in the Bible of His
Second Coming. I trust it will inspire you to “long for His appearing” as never before.


C       Am       F              G

I saw heaven standing open

C        Am                     F       G

And there before me was a white horse

C       Am       F              G

I saw heaven standing open

C        Am                     F       G

And there before me was a white horse

F             G                Am

Whose rider was faithful and true

F             G                C   G

Whose rider was faithful and true



F               G         C                Am

With justice He judges and makes war

F             G               C

His eyes are like flaming fire

F            G         C        Am

On His head are many many crowns

F          G              F           G

He’s coming back, He’s coming back,

F                          G          C        G

He’s coming when the trumpet sounds

G      F    G         F  G            F  G    C   G

Hallelujah!  Hallelujah!  Hallelujah! Amen!

G      F    G         F  G            F  G    C   G

Hallelujah!  Hallelujah!  Hallelujah! Amen!



Visit Us Now
This is another of my prayer retreat songs. My family had come to the cabin with me for a few
days and then they went home to go back to school and work, leaving me to spend alone time
with Jesus. My heart was breaking for greater intimacy with Him, and for our church to
experience the same. I hope you’re part of the “us” that He chooses to visit.


G          C       D     G

Visit us now, Holy Spirit

G                     C          D            Em

Come in your strength and your power

C       D           C         D  Em

We humbly plead for your Presence now

C       D           C         D  Em

We humbly plead for your Presence now



G          C       D     G

Visit us now, holy Jesus

G                     C          D            Em

Show us your loveliness and beauty

C       D           C         D  Em

We humbly plead for your Presence now

C       D           C         D  Em

We humbly plead for your Presence now





G                      C               D            G

Father, please come here now, our Father

G                     C          D            Em

Come wrap your arms around your children

C       D           C         D  Em

We humbly plead for your Presence now

C       D           C         D  Em

We humbly plead for your Presence now



Lord, Help Me
When I pray, I walk. I walk in all kinds of places – the best of venues, of course are the ones
with the most solitude. Fall Creek in the San Lorenzo Valley is one such place. It’s a great hike
along the creek, and is now among my favorites. This simple chorus comes from one of those
hikes on a day I was particularly struck by how little like Jesus I am.

G       D/F#        C   D                    G

Lord help me to be wholly like You

D/F#          C                     D     C

Live in me and make my heart new

D/F#       C          D/F#    C       D/F#

I am searching, I cam calling, I am reaching out to you

G     D/F#          C    D                 G

Lord help me to be wholly like You

D/F#             C           D/F#

I want you to be fully reigning in me

D/F#        G   D/F#  C

Fully reigning in me

Fully reigning in me



Needy and Broken
This is another one from a mountain prayer retreat. I never go away to “write songs.” I go
away to experience God. But as I experience Him, oftentimes simple songs come to express
what He’s doing in me at the moment. On this day I was feeling decidedly needy and broken.
But I felt (and still do feel) hope that I’ll get more and more fixed by His grace.

G                D/F#     C              D/F#

Needy and broken, that’s what I am

Em                Bm        C               D

I come here open, as much as I can

G          Am7           D

Jesus I call on your name

Em           C                D

I bring my sin and my shame

C                 D/F#

I know you see me

C                  D/F#

Jesus, come clean me

G                         C

Please Lord now free me



G                D/F#     C              D/F#

Needy and broken, that’s what we are

Em                Bm        C               D

We come here open, bearing our scars

G          Am7           D

Jesus we call on your name

Em           C                D

We bring our sin and our shame

C                 D/F#

We know you see us

C                  D/F#

Jesus, come clean us

G                         C

Please Lord now free us

G                         C

Please Lord now free us

G                         C           D/F#    G

Please Lord now free us



Do Not Let Your Hearts Be Troubled
One year our church memorized (or attempted to) the entire “Upper Room Discourse” (John
14-16). This tiny chorus comes from my own meditation of the passage. I hope it puts hope in
your heart for His soon return.


A                        D           A

Do not let your hearts be troubled

D        E

Trust in God, trust also in me

A                        D           A

Do not let your hearts be troubled

D    E   A

Trust in God, trust also in me

D F#m       E                D     E       A

I will come back, and take you to be with me

F#m E        A              A                    D           A

I will come back, and take you to be with me there

D           A

And take you to be with me there



I’m Gonna Believe In You
I went for a long drive one day to spend as much time as it took for God to refresh my waning
faith. (When the weather doesn’t permit me to walk in prayer, I drive.) When my faith level is
low, sometimes it helps me to make a bunch of faith statements; to say out loud stuff I know
to be true. And even if I don’t have a lot of current faith welling up in me, I’ll express both the
faith I’ve had in the past, and the faith I hope to recover. Thus, the words – “I’m gonna believe
in You no matter what the circumstances say…”


Am7 – G D2/F# - Am7 – G – E7


Am7                G       D2/F#/F

I’m gonna believe in You

Am7                   G                   E7

No matter what the circumstances say

Am7                G       D2/F#/F

I’m leaving my trust in You

Am7                  G             E7

Regardless of what happens today


Am7        G

Because You’re faithful, reliable

D2/F#                         D2/F

Always keeping your promises

Am7                  G               

Unswerving, dependable

D2/F#                        D2/F       Am7 – G – D2/F#  Am7 – G – E7

Never breaking Your Word to us…

D2/F#                        D2/F

Never breaking Your Word Lord

D2/F#                        D2/F

Always keeping Your Word Lord

D2/F#                        D2/F      Am7 – G – D2/F#  Am7

Never breaking Your Word to us…



Reign In Me
The lyrics of this song were written by someone else to another melody many years ago. I
loved the message of the chorus, but felt that it needed a more contemporary melody (well, it
was contemporary when I wrote it!). May He captivate your heart as you sing it.


Em         Bm  C       D               Em

Reign in me, Jesus reign in me

Em      Bm              Em   D

Reign in me, Jesus now

Em         Bm  C       D               Em

Reign in me, Jesus reign in me

Em      Bm              Em   

Reign in me, Jesus now

C       G          D

Captivate my heart

C               G            D

Establish there your throne

G              D          

May your kingdom come

G                        Em

May your will be done

C    D                   G    D

Reign in me, Jesus reign in me



Come On In
I remember the Lord dealing with me and our church about letting Him have more access to
our hearts. The Revelation 3:20 passage is so commonly used to challenge people to let
Jesus into their hearts initially. Actually, I’m cool with that. But technically, it was written to a
“church” (Laodicea) who had been negligent about letting Jesus have His way with them.
That could be said of us – yes? Let Him in.


A        E   A

Come on in

D      A  E

Holy Jesus, come on in

D                              A

I hear You calling my name

D                             A                  E

I’m so glad that You came to my door

D               A

I open the door to You

D                       A

I sincerely want more of You

D                          A                 E

I’m desperate for more of You Lord



Boundless Love
The chorus is one that my friend, Jeff Jaquess used to sing (and when I say, "used to," I'm
talking about in the 70's!). I don’t know where he got it, but it has always one of my favorite
songs of all time. I’ve always especially loved the words, “I can’t believe that you selected
me.” I loved the song a lot, and since I couldn’t remember the verses, I wrote one with entirely
different words and melody.


(Chorus from an unknown source)

G                      C

Boundless love – unending joy

G                      D

This is my life – it’s what I know

G                    C               

I can’t believe that You selected me

G   D                C   G   C   G

Jesus my Lord, it’s You I owe



C                                     G

I know You love me - This is what’s true

C                                        D

You’ve done it all Lord - You’ve made me new

C                                G

You have my heart now – I’m yours forever

C                                    D

You’re all my world, Lord – You’re my treasure



To The Throne Of Grace
This one came in the mountains. If I wasn’t feeling pretty needy and sinful when I arrived, after
some time with the Lord, I saw my neediness. It’s not that He rubs our noses in our sin, and
shames us for it. But He most certainly does remind us of what we are, and how much we
need Him to cleanse and change us. In addition, He also always reminds us that His grace is
more than sufficient to forgive us and set us free from ourselves. I love Him for it!


F  C  Dm  Am  Bb  F  Eb  C

F     C      Dm      Am

I am needy, I am weak You see

Bb         F                      Eb   C

You are faithful, You’re all I need

F        C           Dm            Am      Bb       F               C

Here I am Lord, weak and sinful, falling at your holy feet



F             C        Dm

To the throne of grace I come

D               C

Knowing You’ll greet me I come

F             C         Dm

At the throne of grace I bow

D                      C

Believing You’ll meet me somehow



F        C     Dm              Am

I am broken, won’t You fix me Lord

Bb         F                      Eb   C

Nothing else will help me now

F        C           Dm            Am      Bb       F               C

Here I am Lord, weak and sinful, crying out to You for more



Gm            C             F                 C          Dm

Grace abounding – Grace astounding to me

Gm            C      Bb            C               Bb C  Bb C  Bb C    F

Grace amazing – Grace is setting me free
