Coming soon to a couch near you! We’ve been booking some intimate home shows in the Portland area this summer and are looking for some more homes to invade. So if you would like to host an Acoustic Living Room Concert please let us know!
Here are some quick links to various retailers where you can purchase either a downloadable MP3 copy of this album or in some cases a physical CD with lyric booklet.
Dawson’s latest single is an acoustic lullaby with a mellow groove reminiscent of a Joshua Radin song performed by OneRepublic.
This song is a mellow, grooving acoustic lullaby featuring guitar and mandolin along with some hand percussion and lush harmonies. Once again Dawson has teamed up with the amazing Nick Garrett-Powell and delivered a fantastic new song. Based mostly on the passage from Psalm 121 and the inspirational lyrics of an anonymous poem, it reminds us that we can lay our burdens at the feet of Jesus and he will give us perfect peace. That when we lay down to sleep we can rest assured that his eyes never close in sleep and that he is always keeping watch over us.
This song is one of the first singles completed for Dawson’s 13th full-length CD, “White”, which is currently being completed in the studio. Stay tuned for some more singles and word on a firmer release date for the new album!
For fans of Brandon Heath, Joshua Radin, OneRepublic and Nickel Creek.
Before You Sleep
Before you sleep, just gently lay
Every troubled thought away;
Just drop your burdens and your cares
In the quiet arms of prayer.
Then drift away, off to sleep
With a perfect sense of peace
Secure in knowing no harm will fall
For he never slumbers; but he sees all
And his eyes never close in sleep
And his eyes always keep watch over me
And his love shining from above
Awakes me softly when the new day has come
Blessed is the day that the Lord has made
We all rejoice and are glad in it
But though this day is gone
We know that His mercies are new
With the coming of the dawn
First stanza taken from an anonymous poem. Additional lyrics by Dawson Cowals.
