about

Even though my listeners mainly know me for my interpretations of classic hymns - many people have asked me if I have an album of all originals. And this project is the answer to that question. I've collected my scattered originals into one cohesive collection.
This album is a compilation of my originals from the "Up From the Roots", "Songs From 7th Street" & "Climbing Higher" albums.

released May 6, 2012

All songs written & performed by David Krienke - except "I Wonder", which was co-written with Jacqueline Porter, and performed with Paul Ellis.

Track Name: I Remember
I remember that night – when You changed my life –
You gave me sight – and You opened my eyes.
You were right there – always waiting for me –
And you’ll Love me forever – I could finally see.

I remember those days – I was finding out –
You’re leading my way – and there’s no reason to doubt.
If I walk a little slower – let You show me the way –
Oh, it’s just so much easier – when I trust and obey.

I remember – I remember –
When I was in despair – You let me know You were there.
I remember – I remember –
In a dark and lonely place – You saved me by Your Grace.

I remember how You said – that You are the Way –
And You said that You would – You’d come back here to stay –
And when You return – it will be like it should –
Everyone will believe You – and it’ll all be good.

I remember – I remember –
When I was in despair – You let me know You were there.
I remember – I remember –
In a dark and lonely place – You saved me by Your Grace.
Track Name: Always the Same
Fire’s still hot, and ice is still cold –
Babys are young, but the earth is still old.
That way is left, but this is still right –
People want peace, but war’s still a fight.

Chorus
And just like before, He still is today –
The same in every way.
We are the ones who change –
But Jesus is always the same.

Sin is still wrong, ‘cause God is still right –
Wicked is black, but purity’s white.
Death can be dark, but there’s Life in the Light –
‘Cause light is still day, but dark is the night.

~~~Chorus~~~

This Way is up, but that way’s still down –
A house in the country can’t be in town.
Enter to come in, and leave to go out –
There’s strength in our Faith, but fear is still doubt.

~~~Chorus~~~
Track Name: All in All
Lord, I submit my all in all to You ... to You –
Nothing I keep, to claim as my own.
Oh, walk with my feet, wherever You want to go ... to go.
And work with my hands, whatever Your will commands.

Chorus
I will submit my life unto You –
Almighty God, and Lord of all lords!
I will commit my whole soul to You –
Jesus, my Savior, and King of all kings –
For You are the All in all things –
You are the All in all things!

Jesus, I lift my voice in praise to You ... to You.
Prepare my lips to tell about You.
Oh, let Your Word ever be flowing out of me ... of me.
For Your timeless Song, is always so sweet and new.

*** Chorus ***
Track Name: I Give You My Song
Tears of remorse were hidden by force –
From eyes that were opened within.
I knew the calm Voice that gave me the choice –
To stay or to change where I’d been –
Down ramshackle alleyways – stumbling through hazy daze –
When I was already given –
Life every day – and Word for my way –
So, I gave You my sin.

Chorus
Now I can give You my song –
It’s easy, and not very long.
But it’s the next way that I have to say:
I can’t give enough to You –
Live and show love to You.
Jesus, I give You my song.

Plans for our equity – social necessity –
Building our lives to fit in.
But when we left town, it came crashing down –
And we plotted our course once again.
Down old dead-end avenues – blind where we were going to –
When the answer was always within.
Just make a shift – start using the gift –
Then, I gave You my life.

~~~ Chorus ~~~
Track Name: Let Everything that Is, Praise the Lord!
Let everything that is – praise the Lord! Let everything that is – praise the Lord!
Praise Him with your voice – let’s make a joyful noise!
Let everything that is – praise the Lord!

Let everything that is – praise the Lord! Let everything that is – praise the Lord!
Praise Him with your hands! Praise Him with a dance!
Let everything that is – praise the Lord!

Let everything that is – praise the Lord! Let everything that is – praise the Lord!
Praise Him in His church! Praise Him in the earth!
Let everything that is – praise the Lord!

Bridge
I will sing a new song to You – ‘cause You shine Your Light on everything I do!
You have lifted me, and freed me from the pit!
Light me with Your Fire, and help me to stay lit!


Let everything that is – praise the Lord! Let everything that is – praise the Lord!
Praise Him you mighty trees! Praise Him blowin’ in the breeze!
Let everything that is – praise the Lord!

Let everything that is – praise the Lord! Let everything that is – praise the Lord!
Praise Him, Oh you mountains! Praise Him you water fountains!
Let everything that is – praise the Lord!

Let everything that is – praise the Lord! Let everything that is – praise the Lord!
Praise Him in this room! Praise Him up on the moon!
Let everything that is – praise the Lord!

*** Bridge ***

Let everything that is – praise the Lord! Let everything that is – praise the Lord!
Praise Him in this place! Praise Him in outer space!
Let everything that is – praise the Lord!
Let everything that is – praise the Lord!
Let everything that is – praise the Lord!
Track Name: I Wonder
I wonder what the blind man will say about the day –
The war he’s fought for so long, has up and gone away.
At last he’ll see the city, and his darkness will be light –
And he’ll find the road he walked is solid gold tonight!
Will he say – “Thank You, Jesus, for allowing me –
To see my first light, as Your Glory shines on me –
For streets like gold, the crystal sea, and angels all surrounding me!
Thank You, Lord – thank You, Lord! I can finally see – I can finally see!”

And what about the deaf man, who’s ears have never heard –
Laughter, or the raging sea, or the singing of a bird?
He’s never heard a baby cry, or sounds of harmony –
But when he gets to heaven, he’ll hear songs of victory!
Will he say, “Thank You, Jesus, for allowing me –
To hear my first angel-band, in the home prepared for me –
To hear Your Voice like a symphony, and choirs singing, ‘Holy is He’!
Thank You, Lord – thank You, Lord! I hear You welcome me – I hear You welcome me!”

Then I think about the lame man, and how he never knew –
How it felt to walk the seashore, or wear out a pair of shoes.
He never, ever rode a bike, or to the music danced –
But he’ll leap for joy when he receives his great inheritance!
Will he say, “Thank You, Jesus, for allowing me –
To take my first steps, in this place made just for me!
You’ve given me mobility to dance before You endlessly!
Thank You, Lord – thank You, Lord!
I am finally free! I am finally free!”

But I don’t need to wonder, ‘cause I have been all three –
Blind, and deaf, and lame – so I know just what I’ll say –

I’ll say, thank You Jesus, for always loving me!
To the truth I once was blind, but now I can see –
‘Cause I can hear You easily, to walk with You eternally!
Thank You, Lord – thank You, Lord!
You’re everything to me! You’re everything to me!
Track Name: Who's At the Door?
Everybody wants another revelation –
Something that’s hidden or lost.
But the Light has already been given –
Revealed in My Word, through the Cross.

Chorus
But, I still hear you say – “Who’s at the door?”
Oh, don’t you know who I Am?
For, I have always loved you, with an everlasting love.
My loving-kindness drew you, when your life got so rough.
I carried you along the path, when you could barely stand –
And haven’t I loved you enough, to recognize my Hand?

Just like Eve was tricked into believing
There were secrets I should let her know –
So many of you are still reaching
For strange fruit, you think will help you grow.

~~~~Chorus~~~~

So, why won’t you receive what you’ve been given?
Like the Israelites, you still want more.
But, I’ve already rained down from heaven –
All you need to open up the door.

~~~~Chorus~~~~
Track Name: The Ephesian Prayer
I pray that the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, The Father of Glory, may give to us; may give to us; That He may give to us, the Spirit of wisdom and revelation,
In the knowledge of Him –

The eyes of our understanding being enlightened, That we may know what is the hope of His calling; hope of His calling;
That we may know that hope; and what are the riches of the glory
Of His inheritance, in the saints –

And what is the exceeding greatness of His power, Toward us who believe, according to the working; according to the working
Of His mighty power, which He worked in Christ, When He raised Him from the dead, and seated Him at His right hand –

At His right hand, in the heavenly places, far above all principality,
And power, and might, and dominion; might and dominion, He’s far above all powers and every name that is named,
Not only in this age, but also in that which is to come.

For this reason, I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
From Whom the whole family; from Whom the whole family,
In heaven, and earth is named; that He would grant us,
According to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might -

Through His Spirit, in the inner man, that Christ may dwell In our hearts, through faith, that we being rooted; that we being rooted;
Rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints,
What is the width, and length, and depth, and height –

To know the Love of Christ, which passes knowledge, That we may be filled; that we may be filled; that we may be filled;
Filled with all the fullness of God. Now to Him who is able
To do exceedingly abundantly, above all that we ask, or think –

According to the power that works in us,
To Him be glory in the church; to Him be glory; to Him be glory;
To Him be glory in the church, by Christ Jesus,
To all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
