About the Album

Roots is a collection of songs that have grown slowly, taking hold deep in Jimmy’s soul since he was young. Each track is steeped in the struggles of the past, looking forward to the deliverance of heaven, but encouraging us towards hope in Jesus in the here and now.

I Want To Be At The Meeting ("PawPaw" Acapella)

Hidden Link
Chorus 1 

I want to be at the meeting
I want to be at the meeting
I want to be at the meeting when all the saints get home After separating of the right and the wrong
I want to be in the meeting around God’s throne 

Chorus 2

I want to be at the meeting
I want to be at the meeting
I want to be at the meeting when all the saints get home Trouble will be over, sorrow will be gone
Then we’ll have a meeting at God’s throne 

Verse 1

When I get to Jordan, I'll walk Jordan just like a man Unbuckle my sword right off my side
Stick in the golden sand
Talk to God the Father, talk to God the Son

Then we’ll have a meeting around God’s throne 

Verse 2

When I get to heaven, I’m gonna meet my mother there Now this is what she’ll say:
“Lord God almighty, here come my child
He must've got here by prayer” 

I’ll sang a song, around God’s throne
Then we’ll have the meeting around the throne 

Chorus 3 

I want to be at the meeting (don’t you wanna be there?) I want to be at the meeting (oh Lord I wanna be there!)
I want to be at the meeting when all the saints get home After separating of the right and the wrong 

I want to be at the meeting around God’s throne

A Little While Longer

Hidden Link
Intro

Hold on, just a little while longer  
Hold on, just a little while longer

Chorus 1

Hold on, a little while longer  
Hold on, just a little while longer  
Hold on, just a little while longer hold on

Verse 1

I’m tired of walking around the place I call home  
Kicking ‘round the dust I come from
And feeling like I’m walking alone
Lord, tell me why, You said you’d always be by my side  
Yet every night You’re hearing me cry
With a broken hallelujah inside, but they keep telling me to...

Chorus 2

Hold on, a little while longer  
Hold on, just a little while longer  
Hold on, just a little while longer hold on

Verse 2

Every well that I ever ran to was dry  
Every vice I consumed was a lie
My flesh was never satisfied
Lord help me! I need you to help me  
I know you can save me
I’m down on my knees, begging You to...

Chorus 3

Hold on, a little while longer  
Hold on, just a little while longer  
Hold on, just a little while longer hold on

Solo  [Progression x2]
Verse 3

Lord bless this suffering, help me rejoice in the fire  
Lord You know I’m sick and tired of this life  
But You’ll wipe every tear from my eyes

Bridge

Soon and very soon, we will stand on eternity’s shore
Seeing justice rolling down, hearing many waters roar
Soon and very soon, I won’t walk by faith no more
Oh these clouds will roll on back, at the coming of our Lord!

Chorus 4

Hold on, a little while longer  
Hold on, just a little while longer  
Hold on, just a little while longer hold on (x2)

Vamp  [Progression x2]

There’s coming a day, when I'll see Your face, my faith will be made sight
I’ll be home, I’ll be home, Oh I'll be home
No more suffering, No more pain, No more sorrow, I'll be home

Outro

Hold on, a little while longer  
Hold on, just a little while longer  
Hold on, just a little while longer hold on

We Sing

Hidden Link
Verse 1

Lord I want to see Your face
Every moment of every day
If you inhabit people’s praise
Then why should I be silent?
When You’ve given me a song to sing
You fill me with a melody
Lord You have been so good to me
So why would I be silent?
Why wouldn’t I sing?

Chorus

We sing for You are good
Your steadfast loves endures forever, forever
We sing to give You thanks
A song of praise we raise together, together

Verse 2

There is nothing good apart
From being right where You are
Lord you have brought us to Your heart
And we have seen You are better
So all I wanna do is stay
Captivated by Your grace
Lord you inhabit people’s praise
So we will sing forever

Chorus

We sing for You are good
Your steadfast loves endures forever, forever
We sing to give You thanks
A song of praise we raise together, together

Bridge

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah

Every morning, every evening
In the midnight hour we sing
In the grieving, in our weeping
In the joy and pain
In the silence, in the suffering, hallelujah

Chorus

We sing for You are good
Your steadfast loves endures forever, forever
We sing to give You thanks
A song of praise we raise together, together

My Lament

Hidden Link
Verse 1 

Folks say what they wanna say
When they really need to say nothing
They need to say nothing at all
People wait when they really need to move And the waiting they do
Makes them really do nothing at all

Chorus 1 

I'm sad about the days we're living in I'm hurt and falling to my knees again I'm broken by the sin of this world
I'm winded by the fight 

My lament is why I cry 

Verse 2 

What’s going on with the people right now Many fuss and fight
When we need to shine the light of love But we see what we wanna see 

We know what we need to be We need to be the light of love 

Chorus 2 

I'm sad about the days we're living in I'm hurt and falling to my knees again I'm broken by the sin of this world
I'm winded by the fight 

My lament is why I cry 

Refrain

Keep going, keep moving Though the tears may fall We ain’t giving up, no
We aint giving up no no These afflictions may ache As the way gets weary 

We know we are not alone We ain’t giving up, no
We ain’t giving up, no no

Chorus 3

I'm sad about the days we're living in I'm hurt and falling to my knees again I'm broken by the sin of this world
I'm winded in the fight 

My lament is why I cry 

Refrain

Keep going, keep moving Though the tears may fall We ain’t giving up, no
We aint giving up no no These afflictions may ache As the way gets weary 

We know we are not alone We ain’t giving up, no
We ain’t giving up, no
We ain’t giving up, no 

We ain’t giving up, no no

Don't Move That Mountain

Hidden Link
Chorus

Now now Lord, You don’t have to move that mountain
But give me the strength to climb
Lord God almighty don’t You take away the stumbling blocks
But lead me all around

Verse 1

The way may not be easy
Lord You did not, You didn’t say that it would be
For when our tribulations get a little too light and easy
We tend to stray away from Thee

Chorus
Verse 2

All of our cares, we bring before You
You told us Lord, that we could
Oh yes and You’re faithful, You promised You would help us in our need
And we believe You always would

I Want To Be At The Meeting (Reprise)

Hidden Link
Chorus 1

I want to be at the meeting
I want to be at the meeting
I want to be at the meeting when all the saints get home After separation of the right and the wrong
Then we’ll have the meeting around the throne 

Verse 2

When I get to heaven, I’m gonna see my pawpaw there He’ll say: “Lord God almighty, here come my child
He must've got here by prayer”
I’ll finally be home, and I’ll sing myself a brand new song Then we’ll have a meeting around the throne 

Chorus 2 

I want to be at the meeting
I want to be at the meeting
I want to be at the meeting when all the saints get home Trouble will be over, all of my sorrow will be gone
Then we’ll have a meeting around the throne
