about

Start to finish, these are songs about life with God.

I'm amazed at his love. I'm blown away by the freedom he brings.

These songs came through a lot of tears and heart ache. Despite this, this has been the most joyous group of songs I've ever gotten to bring to life. I pray that they bless you the way they do me.

My biggest goal was to let the songs speak to me... to see what God wanted to say. In the end, my hope was to have an hour of music that I could connect with God. In short: I made these for me. Now I'm sharing them with you.

about

The Longing Selmer, Tennessee

The Longing is music by John and Yvonne Cullimore.

We seek to bring music that will connect with you both in sound and poetry, melding loops and beats with hammered dulcimer, 12-string guitar and layers of vocals and harmonies.

More importantly is that we enjoy our music, and can use them for worship and prayer. We certainly do hope and pray that you can do the same.

Track Name: my refuge
you don’t have to get it right to be mine
you don’t have to perform for me
you don’t have to get it right to be mine
set your eyes on me and you will see

Your perfection is nothing like mine
I am resurrection
your perfection is nothing like mine
I renew perception

Rise and face the dawn

Rise and face the dawn
be a harmony in the eternal song
rise and face the dawn
all creation will sing along
Track Name: everything
Christ in the seeing, the hearing,
in the speaking and the touch
Christ in the loving, caring
in the serving and in the heart
Christ in our thinking and our working
in the wandering of our minds

Deliver us from our mortal dreams
they're darker than they seem
Save us from ourselves
be our everything

be our all in all

In our hurting, in our anguish
in our weeping, in our pain
In our watching, in our waiting
in our silence, Christ... be our peace

breathe through us as we pray
breathe through us in our praise
breathe through us in every word we speak
breath Your life into all our days

Now and forever
Track Name: broken things
clear my mind - tell my soul to be still
So I can hear You whisper in the middle of my noise
Tell my waves to be still
be still

I just don’t get you sometimes
I see you sleeping in the boat when I’m terrified
Tell my waves to be still
be still

God of my anxiety
Lord of my rest
Author of my being
Messiah, saviour of all these broken things

We just don’t get it
We probably never will
Your perfection doesn’t make much sense to our minds
We argue about you all the time

We want to prove to you that we know what to do
But when we try we only prove that the opposite is true
We argue about it all the time

God of our anxiety
Lord of our rest
Author of our being
Messiah, saviour of all these broken things


Let us learn to let go of the ruins we call home
Track Name: 27 Seconds
Stay with me
There are no second chances here
only this moment
Breathe with me
27 seconds well spent could change a lifetime

beat by beat we grow
step by step we learn that we just don’t know
embrace the moment
this is my right now
this is my reality to love
and I choose to live

stay with me
breathe with me
stay with me
live with me

stay with me and take my hand
let’s live this moment together
look deep in my eyes as we stand
this connection is the only thing that matters

beat by beat we grow
step by step we learn how much we just don’t know
embrace the moment
this is my right now
this is my reality to love
and I choose to live

the grass always looks so much greener
it always looks so beautiful

but it’s a lie
Track Name: wind of life (a blessing)
may the wind of life be on your face
may the wind of life be in your lungs
may the wind of life surround you
the author of life has found you

feel it calling you back home
it echoes on the breeze
the maker of the trees is calling out your name
Feel it calling you to rise
it echoes on the breeze
the very breath of truth is opening your eyes

God above me
God below me
God enfold me
God surround me
God in my speaking
God in my thinking
God in my sleeping
God in my waking

Christ behind me
Christ before me
Christ beside me
Christ within me
Track Name: fill your hand with mine
write another song
sing it as you go along
nourishing our children
nourishing our minds
You’re alive, You’re moving,
creating, always improving
A living, breathing picture of the Father’s heart in motion

With your heart, with your hands
You clothe us in all splendor… beautiful to me
With your life, and in your pain
With everything you are you are everything beautiful to me

You frequent other realms
riding on the winds of the Spirit
Reaching to the depths of God
To craft another painting… another lyric
And when you speak from your heart
We all hear it, and feel it So sing your songs
We will do our best to sing along as you walk with the Father

Can we walk in silence as the winds of life blow all around us
fill your hand with mine as we both breathe the air of God
Share with me this silence as the winds of life rage all around us
Fill your heart with mine, I’m so glad that you are mine

Weave your heart inside of mine
kindle me with the fires of your mind
Weave your heart inside of mine
kindle me with the fires of your life
Track Name: in our weakness
life takes over
the sun in it cracks
through the clouds to dry the sweat on our backs
A breeze it blows to refresh and to revive
we can’t keep this joy inside

Life takes over
and the concrete breaks
with flowers blooming that erase the hate
of the daily life, and all its strife
the mundane is swallowed by joy

life takes over bursting from the ground
no death can keep the Father’s chosen down
No bitter cold - nor getting old
can keep us from singing these songs of old

We will sing Your praises in our weakness
And we will sing Your praises in our strength

Life takes over hear the heavens sing
They see through the lives of pain
That the kingdom comes
Hear their message as it echoes across the plains

life takes over bursting from the ground
no death can keep the Father’s chosen down
No bitter cold - nor getting old
can keep us from singing these songs of old


We will sing Your praises in our weakness
And we will sing Your praises in our strength
We will sing Your praises from our sick beds
We will sing Your praises in our strength

We will sing Your praises in our weakness
And we will sing Your praises in our strength
Track Name: meet me here (immanuel has come)
Will you meet me here?
Will you meet me here?

The wind is shaking the trees on the mountain side
that must be you… it must be you
The wind it rips these mighty oaks apart
that must be you… it must be you

but you’re not there
this is but a shadow
this might is but a hallow desperation to believe

Please let me hear you

The earth… it shakes the ground beneath me
that must be you… it must be you
I see fire… consuming all around me
that must be you… it must be true

but you’re not there
this is but a shadow
this might is but a hallow desperation to believe

Please let me near you

to hear your still small voice

Immanuel has come to us

You let me near you
To hear your still small voice
pull me near you
and hear your still small voice
Track Name: fade
Performance has its limits
And I believe I reached them years ago
We lock inside and try to hide
the pain we believe that no one else could know
it’s all a trap
a terrifying lie from hell
and it can overcome your very core
like a storm that will not quell

So here we are again
Locked inside this sin of unbelief
We’re all desperate for a sweet sigh of relief
can we see your eyes
can we touch your robes
let us feel Your breathing
and know that you’re close

and… Fade away into the arms of the Savior
Fade away into the arms of Life

Piercing through the dark
The light that is not overcome
reaching through the night
the light that never fades

we’re dying for freedom
we’re desperate for freedom

all around me (all around me)
the liberating hands of the saints
all around me (all around me)
a love that cannot faint

(and we…) Fade away into the arms of the Savior
Fade away into the arms of Life
