  Chant/Song Revision1
Posted by: jimdarlington - 5 hours ago - Forum: Lyric Critiques - No Replies

Lord Lord Lord
O Lord Lord
There comes a time for a man to lay down
For a man to lay down and die
There comes a time
When the tongue can no longer
utter another lie
 
Lord Lord Lord
O Lord Lord
He goes to sleep and the truth comes a risin'
And there's no more time to wonder why
You measure the faith a man professes
Did he lift his hands to You
Or bury his face in his hands and sigh?
 
Lord Lord Lord
O Lord Lord
You know all the things these hands have done
Did they caress the broken hearted
Or cover these ears against their cry?
Did they reach out to rescue a drowning soul
Or stand on the shore and wave goodbye?
Where was I Lord?
Where can I find it, my perfect alibi?
 
Lord Lord Lord
O Lord Lord
We surely know a stone sinks down
While a bird will rise up and fly
You surely know my sin feels heavy
And I have no wings to try
I know you died on the cross for me
But who exactly am I?
 
Lord Lord Lord
O Lord Lord
Have I shoved a dream to the front of a line
Just to gnash my teeth and cry?
The fear of the Lord is forever clean
And it's never Him who says good-bye
I can only trust that you will judge
If I ever knew you at all, my Lord                                                                                                                    
In this life You gave me, by and by.
 
Lord Lord Lord
O Lord Lord                                                                                                                                                  
You warned us that the flesh is weak                                                                                                                
But the Spirit is more than willing to try
And at times upon a glorious dawn
Your Spirit comes to me, whispering why
There's a home that's holy, safe and warm
You made for Your children above the sky
Lord O Lord
Those who follow their Risen Savior will rise
And know in His Glory forever why
To know His joy no more to cry
To know Your love, Lord, and never die
Lord Lord Lord
O Lord Lord
Lord Lord Lord
O Lord Lord

  How Many Should I Tell?
Posted by: jimdarlington - Yesterday, 02:16 PM - Forum: Lyric Critiques - No Replies

How Many Should I Tell?
 
How many sad people do you know,
And how many each day do you see,
Whose smile has lost its glorious glow,
Whose smile is all of a desperate plea,
"Please know me and tell me I carry a seed.
What purpose will make me alive?
I'm empty, I'm empty, I smile my need.
O when will my Savior arrive?
O when will my Savior arrive?"

 
Rejoice! Rejoice! Redeemed! Redeemed!
You must enter His Kingdom a child,
Like an infant whose eyes see heaven it seems,
That the lost may recall how we smiled,
In the light of His love, how we smiled.
 
How often, how sadly do you hear
The whimper behind the brave face,
That would mask a soul so full of fear,
Of a day that will come without grace,
To have turned when the Lord was so near,
To an endless night, in a godless place.
O do not own that hungry soul
That your silence would judge and so deprive.
Share the light and be so bold
Just tell them truly their Savior's alive
Tell their pain that the Savior's alive
 
Rejoice! Rejoice! Redeemed! Redeemed!                          
You must enter His Kingdom a child,
Like an infant whose eyes see heaven it seems,
That the lost may recall how we smiled,
In the light of His love, how we smiled.
 
How deep in the night are we now?
How close to the rule of the evil one?
We will last, how many are wondering how
Until the return of the Son.
Yes, until the return of the Son.
When every knee will bow,
To confess Him as Lord, glory begun.
Child love the heaven bound soul,
Who you told that this day would arrive.
Shared the light so true and so bold,
Told them truly their Savior is alive,
Told their heart that the Savior's alive!
 
Rejoice! Rejoice! Redeemed! Redeemed!                          
You must enter His Kingdom a child,
Like an infant whose eyes see heaven it seems,
That the lost may recall how we smiled,
In Jesus Christ, how we smiled.
 
How strange the promise of life evermore
To those who but number the years
The promise that death will be nevermore
Nor the sum of the soul's unholy fears.
Come to Jesus ! Come to Jesus!
Take my hand, come meet my Friend!
He the One who loves us, sees us,
Died for us and rose again,
That we might be reborn and then
Tell all that our Savior's alive!
 
Rejoice! Rejoice! Redeemed! Redeemed!                          
You must enter His Kingdom a child,
Like an infant whose eyes see heaven it seems,
That the lost may recall how we smiled,
In the light of His love, how we smiled, we smiled,
In Jesus Christ, how we smiled.

  How Long
Posted by: jimdarlington - Yesterday, 01:21 PM - Forum: Lyric Critiques - No Replies

How Long?                                                                                       
 
How long, how long is forever?
How long is eternity?
Let me show you a full glass of water
Watch me pour it out into the sea
              
How wrong, how wrong, the fear of never
Knowing why you came to be
The King who made you lives forever
To walk with Him His blessed decree
              
How strong, how strong the holy tether
That binds the souls that He sets free
Jesus' love draws us together
Rejoicing yet weeping at Calvary
              
How finely drawn the plans of nations
How plainly known the thoughts of men
No worldly vision of salvation
No comfort now, no heaven then
              
O low born creature, the Great Creator
In love gave you the choice to see
How the Father made you in holy purpose
His faithful child forever to be
 
What a lie His promise of love forever
If life's final boundaries are birth and the grave
What truth in His promise to all that ever
Call on His Name their soul will be saved
              
Oh Lord your angry sword is falling
To part the selfish from the free
Who hear the love of Jesus calling
Who give their hearts to worship thee
 
Oh gentle mercy a breeze from Heaven
As from this world we surely pass
His holy wrath a fear behind us
Into His arms, we fall at last
His sweet, safe arms forever at last

Move The Shadow Back       
 
Verse 1
Sometimes my prayers just seem to go unanswered
Yet I know you hear me every time I call
And as you work behind the scenes I know you’ll do what’s best for me
So I’m waiting patiently till you provide the cure
 
PRE-CHORUS
I trust in you Lord you can do it all
I’ll anticipate a miracle awaits
 
CHORUS
You can move the shadow back keep the rain tight in the sky
Make the day much longer tell the sun when it can shine
I know you can part the sea for someone just like me
You do so much like that you even move the shadow back
 
Verse 2
Sometimes a time like this exclaims the answer
You’re the God in heaven who’s really in control
And everything’s at your request yes in your hands you hold my breath
For all of nature obeys you and does what it is told
 
PRE-CHORUS
I trust in you Lord you can do it all
I’ll anticipate a miracle awaits
 
CHORUS
 
BRIDGE
And though I’m sure I’ll never see
Everything you’ve done for me
I’m ever thankful all day long
To You my God my Sovereign Lord
 
CHORUS

  He's Already There
Posted by: Dell Neal - 06-19-2017, 08:26 PM - Forum: Lyric Critiques - No Replies

Any critique would be appreciated

                                   He's Already There
Vs1.
As I wander through life day after day,
depending on myself as I go on my way
Sometimes I feel weak, sometimes life is rough
Just me by myself is never enough

Chorus
So I fall down on my knees lookin for Jesus, He's already there, He's
already there, He's been shinin His light searchin for me, everywhere I am
every time I breathe He's already there, He's already there

Vs2
We walk hand in hand from time to time
and I can feel His pain with the bread and wine
Sometimes I don't see sometimes I'm blind
Every time I search I know what I'll find

Bridge
He's already there, He's already there, He's already there, He's already
there

Vs3
I know all these things, still yet I find
He's in my heart but not always on my mind
Sometimes it's all me, sometimes there's a hole
then I go to that place in my soul

Chorus
And I fall down on my knees lookin for Jesus, He's already there, He's
already there, He's been shinin His light searchin for me, everywhere I am
every time I breathe, He's already there, He's already there, He's always
there

  Know You By Heart
Posted by: ShannonB - 06-19-2017, 03:34 PM - Forum: Lyric Critiques - No Replies

Hi everyone! Here is another that I will be putting up for collaboration soon. If you want to hear the rough idea, let me know & I will e-mail it to you Smile
V1
Haven't seen you round here lately
It's been at least a couple of days
Where did you go
Can I see you again

I know you think you can hide from me
Don't know why you feel the need
Didn't I give you everything?
I hope you know by now

Chorus
I know you by heart
Even when you choose to hide
I know you by heart
I'm always by your side
You ran away
Or at least that's what you thought
But I am here
And I know you by heart (I know you by heart repeats)


V2
It's been a little while since I heard you speak
I've been missing you the last few weeks
I know you say
You're extremely busy
I miss the days 
You would seek me
I hope you know by now

Chorus

Bridge
I know you by heart
It shows in my scars
 I was broken for you (may repeat)

Chorus

Hi everyone!  I just joined this forum a few minutes ago.  I have been writing poetry for years and just this week a friend of mine and I worked on putting some of it to music.  Who do I get in contact with to get our stuff out there?  We have some demos and the chords for the songs.

  Though Thunder Rolls
Posted by: AprilAudio - 06-16-2017, 06:50 AM - Forum: Song Critiques - Replies (2)

Hey All, 
just released my EP this morning. I wanted to share this song with you - it's called "Though Thunder Rolls". Any feedback would be appreciated!

Though Thunder Rolls

Here are the lyrics:

Though thunder rolls
You still my soul
Though shadows fall
Your light will shine
In Christ alone I place my hope
For He has set my feet on solid ground


Holy, You alone are holy
Yet my God you hold me
In Your arms of love
Forever You will be my rescue
I will find my refuge 
Here in Christ alone


Though winds may blow
You hold me close
Though waves may crash
All will be well 
In Christ alone I place my hope
For He has saved me time and time again
 

I’m safe here in Christ alone
No fear here in Christ alone
