Red Sea Crossing



About

Red Sea Crossing is four guys: Craig Cutcliff (bass), Chris Gork (all guitars), Kirk Hutchinson (all keyboards) and Ray Williams (drums and percussion). We share a heart to use our God-given gifts and talents to honor and glorify our Lord and serve Him by blessing others with our music. We really don’t sound like anybody else and that is very much on purpose. However, the greatest influence on our vocal sound would be Classic Motown and the greatest influence on us instrumentally would be the Jazz/Rock band Steely Dan. In this album, we start with Classic R&B and blend in varying amounts of Jazz, Blues, Soul, Gospel and Classic Rock. Part of our creativity is in being unique while staying appealing.

Red Sea Crossing is joined on this album by our friends: Donna Harvey (lead/background vocals and narration), Chris Lang (multiple saxophones and harmonica), John Clifton (vocals), Essie Curtis-Rockwell (vocals), Al Perez (vocals, congas and bongos) Lorraine Perez (vocals), Amelia Peterson (vocals) and Daniel Sesay (bass). Most of the songs are up-tempo and original but we do include our unique versions of Oh Happy Day, I Go To The Rock, America The Beautiful and a brief narration we have titled Suddenly.

Dedications

First and foremost, this CD is dedicated to Jesus Christ, through whom all things are made possible. Secondly, Donna Harvey and Ray Williams are permanently disabled and would like to encourage those with disabilities to give whatever they can in the service of our Lord. Finally, this recording would not have been possible without the dedication and generosity of Kirk Hutchinson and Daystar Recording Studios. A special thank you to everyone who helped make this project possible.

Genre: Spiritual: Contemporary Christian

lyrics by M. Jason Hickman
 
I thought survival was the name of the game
I laid my schemes and I made my claims
Then Your Holy Spirit touched my heart
It gave me peace and a brand new start

I praise You Lord Hey I keep praisin’ You
I praise You Lord I keep on praisin’ You
I praise You Lord I keep on praisin’ You

Can’t stop Every hour every minute
Can’t stop Every second to the limit
Can’t stop Every night and every day
I can’t stop I can’t stop praisin’ Your name

When times get hard and worry gets me down
I lose my smile I show You my frown
Help me remember that it’s just insane
If even for a moment I forget to praise Your name

I praise You Lord I will praise You
I praise You Lord I’m gonna praise Your name
I praise You Lord I keep on praisin’ You

Can’t stop Every hour every minute
Can’t stop Every second to the limit
Can’t stop Every night and every day
I can’t stop I can’t stop praisin’ Your name

Help me remember that it’s just insane
If even for a moment I forget to praise Your name

Can’t stop Every hour every minute I
Can’t stop Take every second to the limit
Can’t stop Every night and every day
I can’t stop I can’t stop praisin’ Your name

Oh I praise You Lord I praise You
I praise You Jesus I praise You Lord
I praise You I praise You
I worship You no matter what comes my way
Praise You Lord every day
I praise You Lord

I praise You Lord I keep praisin’ You
I praise You Lord I’m gonna praise You
I praise You Lord Yes I keep on praisin’ You
Can’t Stop

lyrics by Ray Williams
 
Time after time
I have cried the tears of no control
Felt the pain inside my soul
Failed to see the forest for the trees

Day after day
I would walk the crowded streets alone
Wand’ring near and far from home
Searching for something I could not see

Still somehow I found you
You were there all along
Now I know I found you
Waiting just beyond my song

Now my life is new each day
And with you a whole new way

Night after night
I would lie awake the countless hours
Searching for the hidden key
Trying to unlock the mystery

Hour after hour
The time would fill with emptiness
It’s a never ending loneliness
And I cried out to the ears that could not hear

Still somehow I found you
You were there all along
Now I know I found you
Waiting just beyond my song
Still somehow I found you
You were there all along
Christ I know I found you
Waiting just beyond my song

Still somehow I found you
You were there all along
Lord I know I found you
Waiting just beyond my song and
Still somehow I found you
You were there all along
Christ I know I found you
Waiting just beyond my song
I’m so glad I found you

Feelin’ down Kind of blue
Worldly troubles troublin’ you
And your weary ‘Cause that worry
Is all you do
So you wanna give up And end it all
‘Cause you got your back up Against the wall
And feelin’ lonely Is your only
Closest friend You need a friend

It’s a matter of love Matter of love
A matter of hope Matter of hope
Matter of peace Matter of peace
Matter of faith Matter of faith
Just a matter of trust in Jesus Christ and His amazing grace

It’s a matter of love Matter of love
A matter of hope Matter of hope
Matter of peace Matter of peace
Matter of faith Matter of faith
Just a matter of trust in Jesus Christ and His amazing grace

So you try your best All the time
But situations just don’t fall in line
And that bad news Is the only news headlines for you

It’s a matter of love Matter of love
A matter of hope Matter of hope
A matter of peace Matter of peace
Matter of faith Matter of faith
Just a matter of trust in Jesus Christ and His amazing grace
Trust in Jesus Christ and His amazing grace

Where do I go When there’s no one else to turn to
Who do I talk to When nobody wants to listen
And who do I lean on When there’s no foundation that’s stable
I go to the Rock I know He’s able I go to the Rock

Where do I hide Where do I hide
When the storms of life are threatening
And where do I run to Run to
When the winds of sorrow blow
And is there a refuge Refuge
In the time of tribulation
I go to the Rock I know He’s able I go to the Rock

I go the Rock of my salvation
I go to the Stone that the builders rejected
I run to the Mountain and the Mountain stands by me
For when the world all around me is sinking sand
On Christ the solid Rock I stand
When I need a shelter When I need a friend
I go to the Rock

Where do I hide Where do I hide
When the storms of life are threatening
Where do I run to Run to
When the winds of sorrow blow
Is there a refuge Refuge
In the time of tribulation
I go to the Rock I know He’s able I go to the Rock

I go the Rock of my salvation
I go to the Stone that the builders rejected
I run to the Mountain and the Mountain stands by me
When the world all around me is sinking sand
On Christ the solid Rock I stand
When I need a shelter When I need a friend
When the world all around me is sinking sand
On Christ the solid Rock I stand
When I need a shelter When I need a friend
I go to the Rock
Uh huh yea

lyrics by Donna Harvey
 
When I was just a young child   My momma used to scold me
God is gonna get you is what she told me
Said you gotta live righteous life in my God’s eye sight
Praisin’ the word of the Lord the word of the Lord the word of the Lord

And then one day my momma left me
So quick and on the double
Temptation all around me   I was in trouble
I didn’t know what to say   But on my knees I started to pray
The word of the Lord the word of the Lord the word of the Lord
Praisin’ the word of the Lord the word of the Lord the word of the Lord

Hey you know I asked the Lord to help me
Because I don’t know what to do
I know I am a sinner   Lord I surely do need you
And I wanna live a righteous life in my God’s eye sight
Praisin’ the word of the Lord the word of the Lord the word of the Lord

Well you know I felt the Lord touch me
Oh and I could see my momma
You did just what I told you   Take my child to the water
Where she can be baptized and live her whole life
Praisin’ the word of the Lord the word of the Lord the word of the Lord
Praisin’ the word of the Lord the word of the Lord the word of the Lord
Praisin’ the word of the Lord   The word of the Lord
Hey the word of the Lord   Say Hmm

Sweet beginnings   Like the morning dew
Sweet beginnings   So fresh and new
Sweet beginnings   For me and for you
Blessings flow   Tried and true   Sweet beginnings

By His grace   We come together
And by His grace   The storms we’ll weather
By His grace   Our lives will grow better
Blessings flow   Ending never   By His grace

Sweet   Sweet beginnings   Sweet   Sweet beginnings

With each other   Our love becomes whole
With each other   Two hearts become one soul
With each other   Our lives take a lesser toll
Blessings flow   In His control   With each other

Sweet   Sweet beginnings   Sweet   Sweet beginnings

With our love   We are so right
And with our love   We stand boldly in His sight in his sight
And with our love   He showers us with His light

Oh sweet   Sweet beginnings   Sweet   Sweet beginnings
Sweet so so sweet   Sweet beginnings   We have   Sweet beginnings
I love you   Sweet beginnings   Beginnings   Sweet beginnings

Suddenly The heavens are quiet All is quiet
The angels turn you turn the entire world turns
And there He is Jesus
Through waves of light you see the silhouette figure of Christ the King
He is atop a great stallion and the stallion is atop a billowing cloud
He opens His mouth and you are surrounded by His declaration
I am the Alpha and the Omega
The angels bow their heads the elders remove their crowns
And before you is a figure so consuming that you know
Instantly you know that nothing else matters
Forget stock markets and school reports sales meetings and football games
Nothing any longer is newsworthy
All that matters matters no more
For Christ has come

Oh to be a friend of God
Righteousness that comes by faith
In the garden   Walking with Him
Oh to see Him face to face

To live a life that never ends
To walk with God and be His friend

In the presence of the Lord
Fire by night and cloud by day
In the desert   On the mountain
Oh to understand His way

To live a life that never ends
To walk with God and be His friend

Show me Your glory
Show me Your glory Jesus
Show me Your glory I wanna see Your face
Show me Your glory yes
Show me Your glory Father
Show me Your glory I wanna see Your face
Your face

Show Your glory   Show Your glory
Show Your glory Lord
Show Your glory   Show Your glory
Show Your glory Lord

Show me Your glory
Show me Your glory Jesus
Show me Your glory I wanna see Your face
Show me Your glory
Show me Your glory Father
Show me Your glory I wanna see Your face
Show me Your glory
Show me Your glory Jesus
Show me Your glory I wanna see Your face
Show me Your glory yes
Show me Your glory Father
Show me Your glory I wanna see Your face
I wanna see your face   Your face

Oh beautiful   For spacious skies
For amber waves of grain
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain
America America God shed His grace on thee
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea

Oh beautiful for pilgrim feet
Whose stern impassioned stress
A thoroughfare for freedom beat
Across the wilderness
America America God mend thine ev’ry flaw
Confirm thy soul in self-control
Thy liberty in law

O beautiful for patriot dream
That sees beyond the years
Thine alabaster cities gleam
Undimmed by human tears
America America God shed His grace on thee
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea
From sea to shining sea
From sea to shining sea

Oh God Dear Father I love you
There is no one above you
You gave to me the freedom
To love with all my heart

All across the world they’re singing
Praises to the Lord our God and King
Soon’s the day you know that He is coming
We’ll be by His side

I know you know I love you
I love no one above you
You are for me the reason
I love with all my heart

Hear the voices raised together
Listen to the praise of God forever
Soon’s the day you know that He is coming
To be with His bride

All across the world they’re singing
Praises to the Lord our God and King
Soon’s the day you know that He is coming
We’ll be by His side

Oh God Dear Father I love you
There is no one above you
You gave to me the freedom
To love with all my heart

I know You know I love you
I love no one above you
You are for me the reason
I love with all my heart
I know You know I love you
