- A Daughter of the Promise Sings to Messiah
...freely ye have received, freely give. (Matthew 10:8)

presents 10 original songs about being a Jewish believer in Yeshua, or Jesus.

Why the name Donkey Walk? The name Donkey Walk honors the humble and awkward learning to walk anew in Messiah Yeshua, the clumsy stumbling walk of a new believer, a never-ridden colt, carrying the message of salvation through Yeshua to the world.

The next project, Clean Skirts, seeks to minister to those hurting from abortion. Click here to read about it.

EL SHADDAI All-Sufficient, Most High, Everlasting God
El Shaddai, El Shaddai, Eloheinu, El Shaddai, El Shaddai.
You gave us the right to claim refuge in Your Holy Name.
El Shaddai, El Shaddai.
El Elyon…
As the shofar speaks directly in the language of Your Truth,
So may we, when we call Your Name, touch You.
El Olam…

SUCH A ONE AS ME
I am walking in the poplar hill woods, dry creek bed running through,
There’ll be a wedding in the upper meadow, in a day or two.
While I like to be alone, hear the echoes of twigs snapping under my feet,
Still I can’t help wondering, where is the one I have come to meet?

Where is He, where is He I have come to meet, even one, such a one as me?
Where is He, where is He I have come to meet, even one, such a one as me?

I would picture a handsome lover coming, if I were a younger maid.
He’d be bearing me a letter, seeking me swiftly through the glade.
But my hair has grown to silver, and it’s my son who is soon to wed.
No, this is a very different kind of encounter to which I have been led.

Where is He...

With His hair of pure black wool, His clothes as white as snow,
Turns flint into a spring of water. Let it flow, let it flow.
He is coming down the mountain. I can’t wait til He appears.
I will lay myself at His beautiful feet, wash them with my tears.

Could it be, could it be He has come to meet, even one, such a one as me?
Could it be, could it be He has come to meet, even one, such a one as me?

Could it be that even this old heart, that’s loved a lifetime long,
Gets a passionate rendezvous, gets to sing a new love song?
Gets to burn with divine love, unsurpassed by natural flame?
We embraced among the poplars, and I can’t hardly say His name.
Yes, I pledged my love to Him under the poplars, tucked in my heart His unsayable name.

Hashem (the Name), Hashem, He has come to meet, even one, such a one as me.
Hashem, Hashem, He has come to meet, even one, such a one as me.

IT WAS YOU
It was You, it was You, You who walked the pages of the Book.
It was You, it was You, Your footsteps show the path that You took.
Though we called You by a different name, Your steadfast love remains the same.
It was You, it was You, You who walked the pages of the Book.

With the eyes of our hearts enlightened, We can’t help but see.
How every page of your Book is brightened by Your proximity.

It was You in the garden, You the Angel ready with the sword.
It was You on the prophets’ lips, You our own King David adored.
It was You who kept a remnant, You on whom anointing oil was poured.
It was You Salvation, You, the only Son of the Lord.

Now your footprints in the sand, I see them everywhere I look.
‘Cause it was You, it was You, You who walked the pages of the Book.

With the eyes of our hearts enlightened, We can’t help but see.
How every page of your Book is brightened by Your proximity.

It was You in the manna, You who sustained us with the Word.
It was You in the fiery furnace, You whose presence could not be ignored.
It was You at the right hand, You who bought what we could not afford.
It was You Salvation, You, the only Son of the Lord.

Now your footprints in the sand, I see them everywhere I look.
‘Cause it was You, it was You, You who walked the pages of the Book.

LIT BY THE POWER
I know what it’s like running on empty. When it seems your lamp has got no fuel.
That’s the time you learn to lean on Jesus. He can make you shine just like a flaming jewel.

Running on empty, God kept the lights. Running on empty, eight days and nights.
Running on empty, God keeps the flame, Lit by the power of His holy name.
Lit by the power of His holy name.

I’ve been on my knees, holding this glimmer. Wondering if the Lord would let my oil run dry.
But that’s the way you learn to lean on Jesus. He’s the one who keeps your lamp in full supply.

Running on empty...

PASCAL LAMB OF GOD
May I just walk beside You where You tread, Pascal Lamb of God?
With the sin of all Your people as a crown upon Your head?
See that barren hilltop, I am overcome with dread.
Still I walk beside You where You tread, Pascal Lamb of God?
May I just walk beside You where you tread?

May I just walk beside You as You go, Pascal Lamb of God?
Can’t take on Your suffering, can’t bear Your heavy woe.
Only You were blameless, without blemish, white as snow.
I can only walk beside You as You go, Pascal Lamb of God,
Only walk beside You as You go.

Pascal Lamb without a flaw, Snatched my life out of the jaw,
of the destroyer as in Egypt long ago.
Yes, deliverance is sweet, waters part beneath my feet.
And though I’m free to walk wherever winds may blow,
I just want to walk beside You where You go, Pascal Lamb of God,
I want to walk beside You where you go.

May I just walk the road to Calvary, Pascal Lamb of God?
How else am I to know the depth of love you have for me?
And may I be among the ones who wait in Galilee,
For your return in righteous victory, Pascal Lamb of God?
May I just walk the road to victory?

JUST LIKE ZECHARIAH SAID(Zechariah 9:9,10)
Riding, riding, riding on a donkey’s back, riding on a donkey’s back to Jerusalem.
Riding, riding, just like Zechariah said, riding on a donkey’s back to Jerusalem.

Hosa--nnah. Hosa--nnah.
Rejoice, Oh Zion. Save us now. Hosa--nnah.

Humble, humble, Lo your King He comes to you. Lo your King He comes to you, to Jerusalem.
Humble, humble, just like Zechariah said. Lo your King He comes to you, to Jerusalem.

From sea to sea, His dominion it shall be. His dominion it shall be, and Jerusalem.
From sea to sea, just like Zechariah said. His dominion it shall be, and Jerusalem.

RUTH'S SONG (Ruth 1:16-17)
Where you go, where you go, I will go.
And where you dwell, where you dwell, I will dwell.
Your people, they're gonna be my people, and your God will be my God.

Let me glean, let me glean.
Where you go, where you go, I will go.
And where you die, where you die, I will die.
Your people...

HOLD IT HIGH for Pastor Fred Small
Jehovah Nissi, I’m in your army.
Do not pass me by.
I long to serve you, long to
Hold your blood-stained banner high.

Hold it high, hold it high.
No greater cause have I.
Please, Lord make me bold to stand and
Hold your blood-stained banner high.

SCRIPTURE INTERLUDE (Psalm 84:10-11 & Revelation 1:7-8, 21:6)
For a day in your courts is better than a thousand.
I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of wickedness.
For the Lord God is a sun and shield.
Behold, He is coming with clouds, and every eye shall see Him, even they who pierced Him.
And all the tribes of the earth will mourn because of Him - even so. Amen. Amen. Amen.

I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, says the Lord.
Who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.

MANNA (Deuteronomy 8:3)
Manna, sweet, sweet manna, that neither you nor your fathers had known.
Because you don’t live by bread alone, but by every word from the mouth of the Lord.

He let you be captives, and then He freed you, let you go hungry, so He could feed you.
Walk in His ways, it's guaranteed you, Hell give you a good land, so let him lead you to His…

He let you get lost, so He could find you, He let you get rough, and then He refined you.
He’s hemming you in, before and behind you, and if you’re forgetful, let Him remind you of His…
