  1. From Dust

From the recording From Dust

This is the final song in the "Excellent 11" series focusing on "Creativity."  It uses the story of Jesus and the woman caught in adultery as the foundation (John 8:1-11).  Creativity helps us see things in new ways which helps us solve seemingly unsolvable problems.

From Dust

I settled in the dust................. And everyone knew
Nothin’ more than mud.......... It was understood
Look up to the sky................... Tower’d o’er by trees
That leafy canopy.................... Roots ran so deep
 
Everyone knows...................... Everyone sees
That’s how it goes................... It was meant to be.
 
I settled for the dust................ And I never grew
Far too great the cost.............. Of seemin’ a fool
Lines drawn in the dust........... An invitation to stand
Rise above the forest.............. Claim who I am
 
Not everyone knows............... Not everyone sees
It doesn’t have to go............... It never had to be
 
Where are your accusers now?
They have all escaped...
Light breaks thru the forest boughs
And shows another way...
 
We were made from dust....... To dust we shall return
Between we rise above........... How far’s to be determined
You can shine your light.......... For everyone to see
Help someone to find.............. Help someone to lead
 
Not everyone knows............... What everyone sees
The way it tends to go        Is not the way it has to be
