Hold On Family Hands

by Family Shiloh

Hold On 03:10
float me in the water, fly me o'er the land may anywhere i go find me holding to your hand it's not that i am frail but when your near i know you cannot fail to cover me in sunshine, to cover me in sand but anyway i'm covered i'll be happy in your hand so cover me when i've fallen, cover me when i'm a failure maybe one day you'll rub off to find my love pure and free you from the heartaches and fly with you to heav'n maybe if your free sometime to hold on to my hand its not that we would care, its just to let you know i think you helped me out to get there even if i don't know you or recall all the years i know that we'll be happy to wipe away the tears and wear a lovely suit and sing around the stand but just for now, i'll hold on to your hand
Oh there's a sunshine in my soul, And if I ere give it away, Then I would cry a million tears, And that is why my sunshine stays! Oh there's a savior in my soul, Whose fathers face was hid from me, Till dying on the bitter tree, He tore the darkened vail away! There’s a friend who walks with me, And he will guide us through the night, There is no question what will come, But all his loves eternal light!
Rubber Dolly 02:20
Give me useful information I have no dimes so collect call They all think i live in austin But i live no place at all But o, in the shepherd's robe Operator i need water For i tell whats in my soul Twas a lamb slain at the altar I need his blood against my wall O, in the shepherd's robe Shepherd's robe in gypsy cloth It was this she came across When she reached out for the hem That blood never flowed again Shepherd's robe they took it off For a scarlet robe and cross But he put it on again Patch me on to him Patch me on to him Everyday, its the same ol' situation But there's a higher station thru that door, Every way I turn for compassion To love more, to love more Operator please talk for me If its words that I should say Way back then they needn't worry Ease my worry, Lord, I pray Shepherd's robe in gypsy cloth I was there when it came off When they reached out to the hem Now I know what all that meant Shepherds robe, they took it off For a scarlet robe and cross But he put it on again Patch me on to him Patch me on to him
All my little children this is a call to come home Come home from the hurt and the harm and the lies, come home Come home from the wounds and the wars and the scars, come home Come home, little children, you've gone so far, so come home All of the time I'm right behind where you are, turn around I took on nails in my hands and my feet, so come home I'm drawing you now with a love so sweet so come home They covered my head with a crown of thorns so come home How often I wanted in my arms to carry you home Come little children Now is the day My little children Why do you wait? peace little children Now you are safe... now you are safe I dressed you up in silver and gold at home All of my love became old to you so you left home You shared your love under foreign sheets far from home You spread your fountains out on the streets far from home Your lovers enslaved you and took you away from your home They wanted to sell you but nobody wanted used up you When I walked by I was on my way back home For the highest price I bought you back to come home The price I paid was my own lifeblood so come home
More in Love 02:11
I'm in love with the air around your hair I'm in love with the skies above your eyes I love many things, yes, this is true, But darling, I'm more in love with you I'm in love with the space around your face I'm in love with the mile around your smile I love all you touch or come close to But darling, I'm more in love with you I know many men that would love to hold you But I don't know if I have ever told you These other men may love you sure,But that don't mean they love you more, Cause darling, I am more in love with you I'm in love with the thought of a wedding day And settlin' down with kids, but mother may I tell you something simple but it's true O darling, I'm more in love with you
Good Music 02:51

Danny Boy 02:35
in the meadow, the wind, like your Spirit, it moved I don't see it, but I know that it's there I feel it around me, I'm so glad you that you found me in the meadow I know that you're there at the ocean, the waves, like your power, come down I respect it, with reverential fear Though your waves would o'ertake me, if I had no regard for the ocean's creator, You're there In the tall wooded forests, majestic with life the birds sing a song in the air And I'm gonna sing with them, to the King of Creation in the forest, I know that you're there On the mountainside tall, I look down on it all But that spaciousness doesn't compare To the size of your grace, overflowing this place On the mountain, I know that you're there In the closet, at night, when I turn out the light I can talk and you can hear my prayer What I don't know to say, your Spirit translates In the closet, I know that you're there In a dark lonely place, when I abuse your grace And in shame I shed many a tear When the sin has enticed, your grace will suffice In repentance, I know that you're there And finally at death, when I take my last breath The cold ground my body will bear But I've been clothed anew with a dwelling from you In the end, Lord, I know that you're there
You are Lord of lords you are very happy so happy and free from everything that is evil You were once a child you served, you taught and you cared for you cared for the lame the blind and the dead the forsaken Praise the Lord Praise the Lord for the Lord is here And His Spirit near no more fear I'll walk in joy with happiness with happiness Praise the Lord Once I was lost once I was hungry so hungry for love that comes from above from your holy hill You were all alone betrayed and scorned and laughed at but you knew the God the God of love up in heaven Then you died on the tree bitter pain and agony but you rose again and saved the dead from their sin their sin Praise the Lord Praise the Lord for the Lord is here And His Spirit near no more fear I'll walk in joy with happiness with happiness Praise the Lord Now I live with you for eternity I'll sing your praise and your grace forever forever and ever amen forever and ever amen
I'm happy just thinking about you and the life that we have shared for a while every day we are together, it gets better and better my hearts frozen like a fetter to your smile And just like the first day we met dear When you showed me all the colors in your eyes I've been watching your love flowin' like the river breeze a' blowin' I need a dam to keep it in and bright blue skies And I will give to you What you want me to If it grows in the garden Then for you I'd pick the fruit I would like to see, all the selfishness in me Go away, and with you I'd like to stay I've never claimed to be near perfection And certainly you see just what I am But I'm trying to be honest and honestly I love you and I'll honestly keep on the best I can Your hair is like the willows near the water Softer than the sunrise is your skin Your certainly a keeper but your love goes much deeper I've seen your boldest beauty lies within I'll sing songs for you How you want me to If it somewhere on the scale Then for you I'd sing the tune I would like to see, all the selfishness in me Go away, and with you I'd like to stay If I've ever wandered please forgive me I've drifted very far from your shore The trap doors strongly trip me up, but when I drink your loving cup, your anchor strongly pulls me back much more I've invented words to help me listen to act like swords against the slaying sounds of the temptresses and tyrants who rob our love like pirates and who make us both forget the love we found I'll make war for you if i need to If it comes near our hearts then I'll cut it at it roots I would like to see, all the selfishness in me go away, and with you i'd like to stay
Why all this commotion? Can't you see that the world's still in motion? Don't you know that God's love's like an ocean for every one of His little children? From this valley I see you are leaving I will miss your brown eyes and sweet smile for they say you are taking the sunshine of the cowboy who loved you a while The cowboy that loved you completely the cowboy that tried to be true the cowboy that can't understand where you're going until i leave this valley too Why all this contention? What all this fighting in the name of religion? It wasn't God, it was man's sad invention who've forgotten what it's like to be children I can't go around with a gun on my tongue not expecting the rounds to deflect the blood on all our hands is the same in the Red River Valley it reflects


For the family's first album, recording took place throughout the home, in small bathrooms, smaller closets, between homework assignments, with family dog barks, crying, laughing, and creaky chairs scattered across the background of the music. The haphazard approach reflected the tapestry of life in a big family, where there's nary a dull moment, but there's always the need to join together in celebration of said family, real love and faith. Every sound on the album was performed or otherwise made by Family Shiloh, whether banging on a suitcase, or snapping tired fingers, to convey our own little harmony.
