Meet You in the Sunrise I will meet You in the sunrise I will meet You in the air I will lay my burden upon You I’ll be leavin’ without care I’ll be leavin’ without care I will see You, double-blade tongue Eyes of fire, snowy hair I will cast my glory beneath You If I have any glory there If I have any glory there Quakin’ earth and rattlin’ bones Tore asunder, stood to see When the only spotless Lamb ‘Stood the wrath of God for me ‘Stood the wrath of God for me I will meet You in the sunrise I will meet You in the air I behold the Bridegroom a-comin’ And these toppled gates of Hell And these toppled gates of Hell

Friend of Sinners I was afraid and could not speak I was a-tremblin’ on my knees Torn and naked before the Throne Choking on a heart of stone There I wept upon Your splendor Sweet Jesus, precious Friend of Sinners My tongue was loosed and I could see The wounded hands of God on me Torn and naked before the Throne When every lilt and every tone Was so beautiful and tender Sweet Jesus, blessed Friend of Sinners Torn and naked before the Throne Choking on a heart of stone There I wept upon Your splendor Sweet Jesus, precious Friend of Sinners His Name is Jesus, Friend of Sinners

Dark as the Night When your hope stands naked and accused It grows dark as the night, it grows dark as the night When your thoughts are as heavy as your shoes It grows dark as the night, it grows dark as the night chorus: On the road where the light splits the gatherin’ dark Like the sound of Paradise falls upon the damned of heart Son, you don’t know who you’re talkin’ to In the dark of the night the Savior’s walkin’ with you Now the way to Emmaus is long It grows dark as the night, it grows dark as the night You walk ‘till the light fades and walk on It grows dark as the night, it grows dark as the night With the shambles spillin’ from your mind It grows dark as the night, it grows dark as the night It is Him as moonglow lights your eyes It grows dark as the night, it grows dark as the night

Lily of the Valley Lily of the Valley Be my beauty and sustain Lily of the Valley The flowers of this world are failin’ me Lily of the Valley Be my token and corsage Lily of the Valley Finally dropped the bouquet of my heart Lily of the Valley Be my suckle and my salve Lily of the Valley The sickness has come into my house Lily of the Valley I need Thee, oh, I need Thee Lily of the Valley The flowers of this world are failin’ me

about

Doug Burr Denton, Texas

"If there are things bigger than sex and laughs, then we damn well better sing about it. If there is a God in heaven even singing against him makes more sense than the hair metal with all its soft porn videos...Burr’s albums have the heaviness of a novel. You don’t read Faulkner for entertainment. Some authors are too full of gravity. You don’t read them at the beach. You read them at the grave." ... more
