About

Cody Summer has an incredible story to tell. In her 30 short years, she has been a cowboy, a dude wrangler, camp cook, elephant trainer, worked on an alpaca ranch, been a competitive cyclist, bicycle mechanic, EMT Firefighter, and has played and performed in California, Wyoming, Utah, Oregon, Nevada, Montana, Tennessee, and Arizona. With years of being a buckaroo under her belt, she would much more prefer singing than being bucked off of a hot blooded horse. Through her many years of riding, roping and branding in the rain, freezing in 60 below temperatures Night Calving, and gathering cows while choking on bug dust in Oregon, solitude became her place of solace. “Music was always a part of who I was since an early age, and it was always bubbling beneath the surface no matter I was doing in life.” Cody shares. So with a cattle book in hand, many times she would find herself jotting down lyric ideas, melodies, and musings about what life and music meant. And while taking in the natural beauty and grandeur she saw all around her, she discovered the mystery and the majesty of the presence of God breathing through the canyons and cathedrals in a way she never pictured. “Since God created music, it should be the most beautiful, intense, and incredible music out there” states Summer. “My passion is to bring the grandeur and creative expanse of who He is into worship. It should be a reflection of the depth and character of what God can offer to every individual. I want to focus people on God and who He is, and I want my music to be a reflection of the nature of God, and the awesome power of his creation.”

Lyrics

Blinding Light

Wheels turning
Crashing through a sea of sage it’s rumbling
Down through the planes
Far across the desert
Through the blackness of the stormy night
I feel it coming

Blinding light breaks through the dark of night
Blinding light is all I see
Shines so bright that shadows run and hide
Has no power over me
Blinding light is all I see

Trouble beckons
Taunting me to turn away from light
To lose my sight
The road keeps winding
Through the hills and valleys I must climb
Freedom to find

You rescue me
You have the power to blind the enemy

Crave

I want You, I need you, Your power like thunder
Shakes me to my core
I’m hungry, so thirsty, Your waters come flooding
I crave so much more
There’s a longing, inside of me
So dry, I come
Seeking water where there is none

Fill this one
Through the wilderness, forsaken land
Your springs break free
From the rocks and hills rivers flow
Over me

Open the floodgates let it roar, let it roar
Open the floodgates let it pour
Open the floodgates let it roar, let it roar

Every Part of Me

Lost, wandering through the valleys
Looking only for Your face
Found, You found me in the desert
Needing only a glimpse of Your presence

I stand in awe and wonder
Your majesty come over me
Like rolling clouds of thunder
Every part of me cries holy, holy

Stop, my heart is filled with wonder
At Your glory in this place
Look, I gaze into the heavens
Fill this place with Your presence

Even the winds they speak Your Name
And even, even the rocks cry out and sing Your praise
Cry holy, holy

I Come

Here I am just waiting
Standing in the place where shadows dwell
Longing for peace from the struggles I know so well
Emptied of all I am, fill me again

I hear praises come down from heaven
As they echo through canyon walls
Your glory, it surrounds me
To my knees I fall

I come, I come
As I am, Your take me
Through a dry and weary desert land
Cleansing release, all my burdens like sifting sand
Pardoned when I receive, forgiven when I believe

I come to that place
Where I see Your face
Finding Grace

I Need You

Come speak to me in the silence
Come sing to me in the stillness
You’re all I desire
All I require

I need You like a fire needs the rain
I need You come fill me again
I need You
I need You I just can’t let You go
I need You that’s all that I know
I need You, I need You

Come be with me in the darkness
Come walk with me thru the unknown
Your all that holds true
As I look for You

You’re me strength when I have none
You’re the journey that’s just begun
You’re the shelter from the storm
That keeps me safe and warm
It’s You I need

King of My Heart

The rising sun proclaims Your greatness
The wind it blows where You tell it to blow
The waves they bow before Your holiness
With all creation I sing of Your great Name

King of my heart Your Name is power
Lord of my life Your Name is power

You are the only One who makes the blind to see
You are the only One who can break every chain
You are the only One who sets us free
With all creation I sing of Your Great Name

So I come just to fall at Your feet
So I come to cry Holy

Singing Over Me

My God is a mighty warrior
My God is strong to save
My God is righteous Ruler
Mighty is He, yeah mighty is He

Singing over me
Like clouds of thunder rollin’ cross the desert
Singing over me
I stand in wonder at the power of Your Name
Singing over me
Singing over me

My God is a quiet refuge
He stands in the eye of the storm
My God is a steady shelter
He’s all that I want, all that I need

I bow and marvel at the beauty of the Son
Who paid it all for me so now the victory’s won

Somewhere South of Nowhere

Well I’ve been sittin’ in the dust of trailing cows
for just a little too long now
and I can’t help wondering
as long as I’m just mumbling
where is my life gonna go if you’re not there
well I don’t mind the solitude
but I’ve just gotta tell the truth
Oh I’m missing you
How I need you

You’re my rest when I’m feeling restless
You’re my hope when the hope is gone
You’re my voice when it seems the music’s gone
Only you are the light in the midst of darkness
You’re my wings when I need to fly
Out across the Nevada sunset sky
Don’t let me be…somewhere south of nowhere

Sometimes I feel like a calf that’s roped and tied
cause loneliness is a long hard ride
i wander off my own way
don’t wanna live my life that way
tangled in a web of desire I wanna feel your fire
you’re the only one who has the key
to unlock this wayward heart
Oh I’m missing You
How I need You

You’re my rest when I’m feeling restless
You’re my hope when the hope is gone
You’re my voice when it seems the music’s gone
Only you are the light in the midst of darkness
You’re my wings when I need to fly
Out across the Nevada sunset sky
Don’t let me be…somewhere south of nowhere
Somewhere south of nowhere

Sweep Us Away

All that surrounds us here is a dry and thirsty land
So we look to You, guide us by Your hand
From the Rock, streams in the desert
From Your side, streams of life

Sweep us away (x3)
In Your river of life

Keep us from unbelief, and complacency
You break every chain and set us free
From the Rock, streams in the desert
From Your side, streams of life

Sweep us away (x3)
In Your river of life

Till nothing of us remains
Renew the passion and the flame
Till we find fullness of joy
In Your presence, O Lord

Unshakable

The heavens open wide
Passed the starry skies
Worship round the throne is ringing
Over all the earth
Throughout the universe
All creation is singing

Unshakable You reign forever
Unmovable
Unsearchable in all Your glory
Unshakable

I stand in awe of You
Your love is pouring through
You fill me with Your presence
All that I can do
Forever worship You
Praises rising to the Heavens

Unshakable You reign forever
Unmovable
Unsearchable in all Your glory
Unshakable

You are Holy, King of Glory, Ruler of All
You are Holy, break down these walls

Unshakable You reign forever
Unmovable
Unsearchable in all Your glory
Unshakable
Unshakable

Way Down the River

Way down the river is where I wanna go
Way down the river, no body know
All the rapids in front of me
Is all that I can see, ahead
Somethin’ I dread

Look to the heavens, look through the trees
The water’s rising, but I’m on my knees
Feels I’m drowning and falling in
This weight I’m carrying is old
And the water is cold

It’s a rise and fall like a curtain call
All I know is that I was meant to be, it’s clear to me
It’s the ups and downs to win my crown
All I need is You to carry me
Way down the river where I’m free

Way down the river, one step away
From drowning in the current, but not today
Cause I reach up and find You,
Nothin’ in this world will do today
Whatever comes my way

Worthy Is Your Name

Great are You Lord who made the heavens
Great are You Lord in all the earth
You give us breath, our life is Yours
Great are You Lord in all the earth

Holy, we give You all the glory
Holy is Your Name
Worthy of all Your highest praise
Worthy is Your Name

Great are You Lord, enthroned in power
Great are You Lord in all the earth
You know our needs, You hear each cry
Great are You Lord in all the earth

You are the king of Kings, we bow before You
No other Name, no other Name be lifted high
You are the King of Kings, We bow before You
No other Name, no other Name is worthy
