    Click "Buy Now" to order the physical CD and get a free, immediate download of the entire album! This "First Edition" CD version of Spiritual Songs by The Wayside will be packaged in a beautiful, full color Digipak case with more great photos by Allen Clark and more info on the songs.

    Additionally, a very limited "Special Edition Boxed Set" will be created for our most passionate fans, friends and supporters. The music is exactly the same as the standard edition, but ordering the Special Edition of the album will get you a hand-made boxed set that will include the full CD, a limited run 7" vinyl single of "Pass Me Not O Gentle Savior" with an un-released B-side work-tape of a song Michelle wrote since moving to Nashville (that may appear in a more fully produced form on a future recording.) You will never see this version of the song anywhere else. Also included in the box will be a stack of 12 photo cards (photos by Allen Clark) with essays about the songs, our history with them, and why we chose to record them on the back and a nifty, numbered, box.

    (Please click on the "Special Edition" link to the right to order.)

    We estimate the delivery date of the First Edition CDs to be around February 1, 2010. By pre-ordering now you are helping us get this ball rolling again, and helping us know how many CDs to print. Thanks!

    Also includes immediate download of the 11 track album in your choice of 320k mp3, FLAC, or just about any other format you could possibly desire. Choose the WAV, AIFF or FLAC versions for highest (CD) quality, but allow extra time for the download. If you only plan to listen on an MP3 player then the high quality MP3 version will be fine.

    You get the music now, and the full CD later. Thanks so much for supporting us!

about

On this track we are backed up by our good friends, and one of our favorite new bands, The Farewell Drifters. It's a great old hymn by Fanny Crosby that we started messing with last year. Once it became a solid bluegrass arrangement we knew The Drifters were the right fit. Zach Bevil, their lead vocalist, joined us to lead worship at our church here in Nashville and when he added that high harmony we melted. The whole band, Clayton (guitar,) Joshua (mandolin,) Christian (violin,) and Dean (bass) are just impeccable on this track. Michelle channelled her inner Dolly, and we were off to the races.

lyrics

Pass me not, O gentle Savior,
Hear my humble cry;
While on others Thou art calling,
Do not pass me by.

Refrain:
Savior, Savior,
Hear my humble cry,
While on others Thou are calling,
Do not pass me by.

Let me at a throne of mercy
Find a sweet relief;
Kneeling there in deep contrition,
Help my unbelief.

Trusting only in Thy merit,
Would I seek Thy face;
Heal my wounded, broken spirit,
Save me by Thy grace.

Thou the spring of all my comfort,
More than life to me,
Whom have I on earth beside Thee,
Whom in Heav’n but Thee.
