    Features never before released Rich Mullins song
    Newest album by Rick Lee James
    Rick Lee James is songwriter who doesn’t just turn a line, but cultivates lyrics that are planted firmly in deep theological roots. On Thunder, his latest album, he composes with the complexity and depth of a musician who has learned the craft by living the life. Thunder is set to be released independently in February 2018 through James’ company, Voices In My Head Productions. The album was recorded at Old Bear Studio in Buffalo, New York with producer Chris Hoisington (Brothers McClurg). This 13 track album combines James’ thoughtful melodies, instrumental versatility, and spoken words to create a vibe where artistry and liturgy meet. The lead single, "Thunder", is a never before released song by the late Rich Mullins, co-written with Lowell Alexander and Phil Naish, accompanied by a beautiful new music video.

Matthew 21:12-14 New International Version (NIV) Jesus at the Temple 12 Jesus entered the temple courts and drove out all who were buying and selling there. He overturned the tables of the money changers and the benches of those selling doves. 13 “It is written,” he said to them, “‘My house will be called a house of prayer,’[a] but you are making it ‘a den of robbers.’” 14 The blind and the lame came to him at the temple, and he healed them.

Thunder Lowell Alexander, Phil Naish, Rich Mullins Verse You walked in when the prophets had grown tired Of being so inspired but rarely being heard Coming on to a world confused and scattered The silence was shattered by the power of the Word Chorus It sounded like thunder when you cleared the temple Sounded like thunder sometimes when you prayed Incredible wonder when the veil was torn in glory It sounded like thunder when the stone was rolled away Verse You spoke truth, You sat among the people They listened in amazement at all the things You said Like a storm that rose above the quiet The sound of Your love was enough to raise the dead Chorus It sounded like thunder when you cleared the temple Sounded like thunder sometimes when you prayed Incredible wonder when the veil was torn in glory It sounded like thunder when the stone was rolled away Bridge When I think about You giving and loving and crying And suffering our pain When I think about You living and dying and rising My tears fall like rain Chorus It sounded like thunder when you cleared the temple Sounded like thunder sometimes when you prayed Incredible wonder when the veil was torn in glory It sounded like thunder when the stone was rolled away CCLI Song # 7098409 © 2011 Mullinsongs, ASCAP, (Admin by The Loving Company), 716 Music Publishing, ASCAP (Administered by Carlson Music Management, Inc.) and Freddie Carter Music Publishing, ASCAP (Administered by Carlson Music Management, Inc.)

Thunder Rick Lee James Verse Come you sinners wracked with shame Haunted by your past Bring your failures bring your sins But leave behind your mask Pre-Chorus He loves you as you are Not as you should be Chorus 1 No depth no height No weakness and no might Can ever come between you And the love of Christ Verse 2 Bring your sickness bring your pain Bring you reckless wasted life Let the shadow self you hide Be illuminated by His light Chorus 2 No depth no height No weakness and no might Can ever come between you And the love of Christ Bridge Do not be afraid for love casts out all fear He would rather die than live without you Come draw near Come draw near CCLI Song # 7113855 Rick Lee James • © Wayfaring Prophet Songs (Admin. by ClearBox Rights, LLC)

Whom Have I In Heaven But You (Psalm 73) Rick Lee James Verse 1 I had nearly fallen away. My feet had almost stumbled The wicked seem to have no shame. Their hearts are never humbled Their bodies are sound, their pockets are full. They scoff at the righteous ones They say You don’t know. They say You can’t see But where else could I go? Chorus Whom have I in heaven but You? There’s nothing on the earth I desire more? My flesh may fail but You are the strength of my heart forever. Whom have I in heaven but You? There’s nothing on the earth I desire more? My flesh may fail but You are the strength of my heart forever. Verse 2 I walked into the house of the Lord trying to understand The bitterness in my soul had made me a foolish man But You didn’t scorn. You held my hand, You led me home again. You are the shelter the world hasn’t seen I’ll tell everyone I can Chorus Whom have I in heaven but You? There’s nothing on the earth I desire more? My flesh may fail but You are the strength of my heart forever. Whom have I in heaven but You? There’s nothing on the earth I desire more? My flesh may fail but You are the strength of my heart forever. Bridge Your nearness is my good. Your nearness in my good. Truly good, You’re truly good. Chorus Whom have I in heaven but You? There’s nothing on the earth I desire more? My flesh may fail but You are the strength of my heart forever. Whom have I in heaven but You? There’s nothing on the earth I desire more? My flesh may fail but You are the strength of my heart forever. Ending Your nearness is my, Nearness is my, Nearness is my good. Your nearness is my, Nearness is my, Nearness is my good. Your nearness is my, Nearness is my, Nearness is my good. Your nearness is my, Nearness is my, Nearness is my good. Your nearness in my good, Your nearness in my good.

Book of common prayer (TEC, 1979) 16. For the Mission of the Church O God, you have made of one blood all the peoples of the earth, and sent your blessed Son to preach peace to those who are far off and to those who are near: Grant that people everywhere may seek after you and find you, bring the nations into your fold, pour out your Spirit upon all flesh, and hasten the coming of your kingdom; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

The Lord Is Our Shepherd Rick Lee James Verse 1 Oh the joy we felt inside When they told us in nine months You would arrive And we told your brother You’re gonna have to share a room And everybody started getting ready for you Pre-Chorus But when we found ourselves in a hospital room Your heartbeat couldn’t be found Something went wrong and now you were gone What are we supposed to do now Where do we go Where else can we go Chorus If the Lord is our shepherd Then He’s walking with us Through the valley of the shadow of death And though the long dark night is swallowing us He will not give up what is His He restores our soul Verse 2 How do we say good-bye When we never got to hold you Or hear your little cry How do we leave this hospital room Get in our car and drive home without you Pre-Chorus I don’t know There’s only one place to go Bridge We never met you but we love you We never met you but we love you Rest in the arms of Him who loves you Lean on the everlasting arms We never met you but we love you We never met you but we love you Rest in the arms of Him who loves you Lean on the everlasting arms CCLI Song # 7113860 Rick Lee James • © Wayfaring Prophet Songs (Admin. by ClearBox Rights, LLC)

Stay Rick Lee James Verse 1 Are there prayers you've neglected to pray Words left unspoken that you need to say Are there mountains too great to climb Are you looking for answers you can't seem to find Verse 2 Are you crushed by the weight of your sin Is it dragging you down and in defeat once again Are there burdens just too great to bear Are you lost and alone in the depths of despair Chorus 1 Will you stay just a little bit longer Will you pray 'til you're sure That peace has been found Will you seek His face In this holy place Will you be still and know Him now Verse 3 We can stay here as long as it takes Seeking His mercy receiving His grace For He has not come condemn But to rescue each soul who call upon him Verse 4 Let's pray 'til we know we've been heard We can seek God's forgiveness believing His word We can praise Him for victory's won In the name of the Father The Spirit The Son Chorus 2 We will stay just a little bit longer We will pray 'til we're sure That peace has been found We will seek His face in this holy place We will you be still and know Him now CCLI Song # 7113862 Rick Lee James • © Wayfaring Prophet Songs (Admin. by ClearBox Rights, LLC)
