Verhaal 05:21
LYRICS by Elisabeth Eybers 'n Vrou het stil geword van baie wag: die aarde het gegly deur die spiraal van dag na nag, was beurtelings groen en vaal, en sy het soms gehuil en soms gelag. Ook was sy dikwels wakker in die nag, maar sy het in haar wonings en op straat gewoon gehandel en gewoon gepraat en niemand het geweet hoedat sy wag. Verlange word aanvaarding, langsaamaan, Verlange word aanvaarding, langsaamaan, Langsaamaan, Langsaamaan Want wag is beurtelings hoop en wanhoop, tot die twee versmelt en stilte alleen bestaan. En deur die jare het sy self die slot van die verhaal geword: haar stilte en krag was skoner as die ding waarop sy wag.

Never Forget 04:09
I’ll never forget The trouble I’ve seen The places I’ve been (2 bars) I’ll never forget The silence and fears You counted my tears No pit so deep, God’s love is deeper still No broken heart, that Jesus cannot heal The Lord’s great love couldn’t have run out, could’t have run out His mercies wide, couldn’t have dried up, couldn’t have dried up His mercies are new every morning 
Great is his faithfulness, Oh Lord How can I explain The peace I have known
The mercies You’ve shown You silence the storm You talk to the waves Defeat turns to victory I’m turning the page No pit so deep, God’s love is deeper still No broken heart, that Jesus cannot heal The Lord’s great love couldn’t have run out, could’t have run out His mercies wide, couldn’t have dried up, couldn’t have dried up His mercies are new every morning 
Great is his faithfulness, Oh Lord Your mercies are new every morning Great is your faithfulness

New Day 03:22
In the middle of the night, when I can’t sleep And the worries of life seem to break my soul And I question my sanity And I can’t help but wonder When it’s dark and somber Can you really make whole what is broken Shall I make it through the night Can I give it all over to You Or shall I keep a little back to help you out Is it really really true what they say Can I give all my burdens away Can You take it on your shoulders and make the broken things whole I have no doubt, I know my troubles are small They probably don’t compare to many others’ But - can You help me out, I’m tired (asking) Can You show me how to live And when I wake up in the morning And I feel I can carry on And I open my eyes to a new day, I can sing a new song And I feel I can breathe a little better I have the grace where I can say - You are, the New Day. I wrote a song - about, choosing love and joy But I find myself acting in the opposite way I know it’s true what You say I can - give all my burdens away - You will take it on your shoulders and make the broken things whole And when I wake up in the morning And I feel I can carry on And I open my eyes to a new day, I can sing a new song And I feel I can breathe a little better I have the grace where I can say You are - the New Day, You are - the New Day You are, You are, the New Day You are, You are, the New Day

Skep in my n rein hart o Heer Vind in my gestalte meer en meer Maak my standvastig en sterk En bekwaam vir elke goeie werk Deurgrond my hart U sien reg deur my Sien my onrus raak en maak my vry Maak my denke nuut en lei my weer Op die beproefde pad o Heer As ek val en seerkry Vind my en dra my As ek soek, verdwaal en swaarkry Vorm my en maak my Leer my van die kruis - my kort bestaan Om die grootheid van U liefde te verstaan Gee my die woorde opnuut om met n nuwe lied U lof te besing As ek val en seerkry Vind my en dra my As ek soek, verdwaal en swaarkry Vorm my en maak my

L'Éternel est mon berger: je ne manquerai de rien.
Il me fait reposer dans de verts pâturages, 
Il me dirige près des eaux paisibles.
Il restaure mon âme, 
Il me conduit dans les justes chemins, 
A cause de son nom. Quand je marche dans la vallée de l'ombre de la mort, 
Je ne crains aucun mal, car tu es avec moi : Ta houlette et ton bâton voilà mon réconfort.
Tu Dresses devant moi une table, 
En face de mes adversaires; Tu - oins d’huile ma tête, 
Et ma coupe déborde. Oui, le bonheur et la grâce M'accompagneront tous les jours de ma vie, L'Éternel est mon berger: je ne manque de rien.
Et je reviendrai, dans la maison de Dieu 
Pour la durée de ma vie.

Just as I Am 03:53
LYRICS by Charlotte Elliot Just as I am, Without one plea, but that Your blood was shed for me And that You call me come to Me O Lamb of God, I come! Just as I am, Though tossed about, with so much conflict, so much doubt Fighting fears within without O Lamb of God, I come. Just as I am, just as I am, Oh Lamb of God To You I come Just as I am, Without delay, your call of mercy I obey
your blood can wash my sins away:
O Lamb of God, I come. Just as I am, Poor, wretched, blind, sight, riches, healing of the mind Yes, all I need, in You to find O Lamb of God, I come. Just as I am, Your infinite love has broken every barrier down
now to be yours, yes, yours alone,
O Lamb of God, I come. Just as I am, just as I am Just as I am, I come to You Just as I am, just as I am Just as I am, I come to You

Eva-Katryn 03:05
Eva-Katryn, mag die son oor jou skyn Eva-Katryn, mag die son oor jou skyn Kind van genade, liefde en hoop Mag jy op paaie van geregtigheid loop En goedheid en guns jou volg En goedheid en guns jou vind Oo, Eva-Katryn, Mmm, Eva-Katryn

Even Though 04:08
Even though the fig trees have no blossoms, And there are no grapes growing on the vines Even though the labor of the olive shall fail, And the fields lie empty and dry. Even though the flocks are dying in the fields, and there be no herds in the stalls Yet I will rejoice in the God of my salvation! I will rejoice in the Lord The Sovereign Lord is my strength! He makes me walk upon the heights The Sovereign Lord is my strength He makes me walk with confidence on places high

about

VERHAAL

16-bit, 44.1 kHz .WAV

The making of "Verhaal" ('story') was in itself a kind of fable. Born almost on the shore of Lake Geneva, this eight-track album narrates a fusion between heart-felt lyrics and a mixture of musical styles.

Recorded in Montreux in the Swiss winter of 2020.

Mixed during 'lockdown' in the mountains of Tulbagh, in the South African autumn of 2020.
