about

An imagined vision Jesus encounters after being baptized in the Jordan River.

lyrics

Before your time comes, He'll draw you deep in the desert

Woah, touched by the water
Woah, voice from the cloud
Woah, truth in a story
Blind man's glory
Face in the shroud

Before your time comes, He'll draw you deep in the desert

Who will my arrow be?
What lines, ways will I follow?
What hands will carry me
when my legs are weak
and my eyes are hollow?

Before your time comes, He'll draw you deep in the desert

These two shoulders are made to bear
These two shoulders feel light as air
These two shoulders are breaking down
All from the weight of a crooked crown

Before your time comes, He'll draw you deep in the desert

When the sun is high and my throat is dry, will I lose my purpose?
When my spirit cries and there's no reply, will I leave my call?
When the answer comes and I know I'm done, I will pray let it pass
But my choice is clear as a longing deer, there is one will to follow

Before your time comes, He'll draw you deep in the desert

about

Phillip Le Ross British Columbia

My name is Phil and I'm a singer-songwriter living on the west coast of British Columbia, Canada. I'm also a husband, a father, and a municipal worker. Somewhere in between all that, I try my best to follow the inner pull that urges on the next new song. My musical interests are varied and this reflects itself in the type of songs I write. Thanks for listening! ... more
