Let it rain…let it rain….let it rain. Let it rain let it rain….on me After four years of drought please forgive me for my doubt but I know you’ll work it out So lord…let it rain….let it rain…..let it rain…. Let it rain…let it rain….let it rain. Let it rain let it rain….on me lord…when it rains, when it rains, let it rain on me, Let it rain, let it rain, let it rain. Let it rain let it rain….on me

Eight ways to Sunday Words and music by David Vaters ASCAP 2015 Monday comes and goes without a sweat She’s smiling even when I may forget Her birthday or some special time like when we first met Now Tuesday’s laundry and picking up clothes I go to work and I don’t even know She’s praying on her knees each day for us to be so close She loves eight ways from Sunday Now Wednesday thru Friday I’m on the road A turn around 10,000 miles I roam I’m thinking of my girl my woman I left at home I tremble as I try to find speed dial Hey I’m turning my life around I’ll be home in a while Tears fall now on my face and only with Gods grace I begin to smile She loves me eight ways for Sunday Eight ways for Sunday Sometimes she feels she hasn’t done enough the good lord and I know that its been so rough One thing’s for sure and for evermore we’ll have each other’s love….. eight ways from Sunday It used to be every weekend I’d be gone But now I’m taking care of things at home I’m committed to loving you all day long I love you eight ways from Sunday Eight ways from Sunday I love her so and I’ll never let her go I love her eight ways from Sunday Eight ways from Sunday – one thing is for sure for evermore I love her eight ways from Sunday.

Brighter than the Stars (C) ascap 2014 Brighter than the stars that’s what you are Higher than the mountains of afar Deeper than the sea that’s what you are Wider than the oceans of afar How can it be that you loved me What did you see in me You know me so well Ten thousand tongues will tell of your glory Majesty so great that’s what you are I can hardly wait from afar Peace without an end that’s what you are And I can’t comprehend how mighty you are How can it be that you loved me What did you see in me You know me so well Ten thousand tongues will tell of your glory Ancient of days prince of peace All mighty god that’s what you are Hope of glory my hope is in you Faith comes by hearing and accepting you You know me so well Ten thousand tongues will tell of your glory Like tiny grains of sand I’m held in your hand and you mold me Brighter than the stars that’s what you are Higher than the mountains of a far That’s what you are to me That’s what you are That’s what you are to me

This Cross 04:32
This Cross by David Vaters ©2014 ASCAP Don’t take this cross Don’t take this cross Don’t take this cross from me Don’t take this cross I’ve know you form the beginning Regardless of the lies I’ve been on a rescue mission To take your place and die If I hadn’t had this burden If I hadn’t known your toll If I hadn’t had known your sorrow I wouldn’t be the one Don’t take this cross down Don’t’ take my cup Don’t take it from me I’ll drink it up Don’t take this suffering They will be done Salvations coming and my work is done When you find yourself in trouble You try hard but always fail I took all your pain and suffering So just call out my name If your still wondering about me And if what I said was true Look up to the cross I hung on And the blood I spilled for you Chorus repeat 2x Don’t take this cross don’t take this cross don’t take this cup from me I’ll drink it up

See you in Heaven ©2012 Words and Music by David Vaters It’s a time of celebration A time of pause and revelation Don’t worry ‘bout me now that I’m gone If it saddens you to miss me Just remember the last time you kissed me I promise you we’ll see each other soon Now I’m blessed I’m at rest Safe within his arms Now I’m blessed I’m at rest and it won’t be very long….til I see you in heaven I can see the pearly gates I’m walking streets of gold God’s timing is so perfect he’s the rock that doesn’t roll I see momma and I see Patrick Waiting for me on a cloud I hear heavenly drummers syncopated and playing loud Now I’m blessed I’m at rest Safe within his arms Now I’m blessed I’m at rest and it won’t be very long….til I see you in heaven So don’t cry for me, don’t cry for me, don’t cry for me….cause I’ll see you in heaven So don’t cry for me, don’t cry for me, don’t cry for me….cause I’ll see you in heaven I’ll see you in heaven, I’ll see you in heaven, I’ll see you in heaven I wasn’t always perfect lord knows I made mistakes There’s one thing I know for certain he died for all our sakes And if your here not knowing Where you’re going one fine day Just ask him to forgive you He’ll wash your sins away Then you’ll be blessed and at rest safe within his arms You’ll be blessed and at rest and it won’t be very long…til you see me in heaven.

David Vest - Producer and Musician 

"A very honest singer-songwriter album, with a Dylan-esque delivery of heartfelt lyrics to God,
to family, to friends...very refreshing to hear."
