  You Keep Healing Me
Posted by: Beagle - 05-20-2017, 03:05 PM - Forum: Lyric Critiques - No Replies

Here's a song I wrote while I was on a cruise ship to Alaska a couple of weeks ago.  The waves were probably 15 feet high or more on the journey from Seattle to Juneau!  the ship was rocking so hard it was difficult to walk.  and this was not a tiny ship, either.

All comments are welcome and will be considered.

You Keep Healing Me © 2017 Reece Bain

Verse 1
When the water's tall and white
And the ship is tossed about
Lord You calm the storm
Lord you set me right

Prechorus
You lift up my eyes
You heal me all my life!

Chorus
You keep healing me
You keep healing me
When I'm hurt and weak
You keep healing me
You keep healing me
You keep healing me
When I'm down on my knees 
You keep healing me.
You keep healing me.

Verse 2
I listen for Your voice
I look for Your eyes
Lord I hear You speak
Lord I see You smile

Prechorus

ALL:  Here's one for your critique on how we might improve it.  Thanks!  Neil

Fertile Ground
 
Words: Neil Sleevi & Dan Simmons
Music : Dan Simmons
 
Verse 1:
 
Jesus told about the farmer
Who went out into the field
Sowing seeds in expectation
Planning for a harvest yield
Some seed fell along the wayside
Where the path was hard and worn
And the birds swept down to steal it
The seed was quickly gone
 
Verse 2:
 
Then He spoke of stony places
Of shallow roots in shallow ground
Lacking depth those plants were withered
As the summer sun bore down
Some seed fell in thorny places
And it sprouted from the ground
But the thorns choked any traces
And the fruit was never found
 
Chorus:
 
But there is rich, deep soil… in the heart of fertile ground 
And the seed is firmly planted… where the grace of God abounds
O, the branches stretch t’ward heaven and the roots reach deeply down
The fruit grows in abundance…in a heart of fertile ground
 
There is rich, deep soil… in a heart of fertile ground 
Where the Word is firmly planted… the Spirit will abound
O, the branches stretch t’ward heaven and the roots reach deeply down
The fruit grows in abundance… in a heart of fertile ground
The fruit grows in abundance …in a heart...of fertile...ground

  What it means
Posted by: savedbygrace999 - 05-18-2017, 08:03 PM - Forum: Lyric Critiques - Replies (1)

Verse 1: 

It's time to surrender, it's time to let go/ 
It's time I remember, what I already know/ 
That Jesus you love me, when I am weak/ 
And God you can see me, down on my knees/ 

Chorus: 

And just because I know You are who You say You are/ 
Doesn't mean I won't struggle, doesn't mean I won't have scars/ 
What it means is You're in the fire, what it means is you're in the flood/ 
What it means is there will be trouble, but You have overcome 

Verse 2: 

It's time to stop trying, to fix myself/ 
It's time to stop waiting, on everybody else/ 
It's a battle I'm learning, that you fight for me/ 
It's hard to remember that You've made me free/ 

Chorus: 

And just because I know, You are who You say You are/ 
Doesn't mean I won't struggle, doesn't mean I wasn't have scars/ 
What it means is you're in the fire, what it means is you're in the flood/ 
What it means is there will be trouble, but you have overcome 


End: 
So here I am trusting, that I'm not alone/
Here I am believing what I already know/

  More Than Six Feet Deep
Posted by: tpistilli - 05-05-2017, 01:18 AM - Forum: Song Critiques - Replies (4)

Here's a completely re-recorded version of Six Feet Deep. It's  humorous Christian country song. Let me know what you think. Any help would be appreciated. I think the piano is too loud on 2nd verse.

https://soundcloud.com/ctonyp/more-than-...ep-revised

MORE THAN SIX FEET DEEP
 
Intro:  D D G A D
 
Verse 1:
             D                   
Gotta “COEXIST” bumper sticker
            G                                  D
On the back of my pickup truck
           D
And I pray before eatin’ my dinner.
           A                                             
Go to church when I’m down on my luck
          D
Gotta bobble-headed virgin Mary
            G                                     D
On the dashboard to keep me safe
         D               
But I lost a tooth in a fender bender
                 A                            D
When she flew right into my face 
 
Pre Chorus:
  Em           G                A
I try to have all my bases covered
              Em                   G                   A
But I'm finding out that it just ain’t it workin’?
 
Chorus:
D
What’s it all about
 
Why do I keep
G
Breathing in and out
                    
Eat, sleep, repeat
              D
'Cause I gotta know when I go
                      A
That it won't be….
                                         D D G A D (Intro)
More than six feet deep 
 
Verse 2:
Gotta hardback Gideon bible
That I stole from the Motel 6
But it's hard to read all those thee's and thou's
My minds just a bit too thick
Gotta double burger and a french fry
For the guy with a cardboard sign
Then I saw him leave about an hour later
In a car way better than mine 
 
Pre Chorus:

that I will let his light shine

SIGHT UNSEEN

Lyrics by Peter Merz
Music by Chas Evans

(In memory of Michael Lehr)

Is this so odd
Lifting up fervent prayers
To this God I cannot see?
You call me insane
To trust in this Nazarene
And claim He rose n' holds the keys
Holds the keys to death and Hades

CHORUS
Sight Unseen
That's how you believe
Faith opens the door
Though it seems absurd
Sight Unseen
That's how you receive
This Holy Carpenter

You call it defeat
To turn the cheek and to pray
For those who hurt me, my enemies
It's just not earthly
How can I rejoice in suff'rin'
And still call Christ ever-lovin'?
And still call Christ ever-lovin’?

REPEAT CHORUS

BRIDGE
Eyes wide shut, hearts open
That's the only way you'll understand
The love that poured out from Redemption's side
Love that poured out from Redemption's side
When the Holy Carpenter bled and died
Peer out through the eyes of your heart
Watch Salvation come alive
See the eyes of the Nazarene 
Have the faith to take Him Sight Unseen

REPEAT CHORUS TWICE

TAG
See true love in the eyes, eyes of the Nazarene 
And have faith in Him, Sight Unseen, Sight Unseen…

  He's Coming Mighty Soon
Posted by: ronnief63 - 05-01-2017, 10:30 AM - Forum: Song Critiques - Replies (4)

I love to play guitar, and it's evident on this song!!

http://www.soundclick.com/ronniefields

He's Coming Mighty Soon

Chorus:
 
Jesus is coming, he's coming mighty soon,
it might be in the morning, maybe in the afternoon.
When he comes we'll know by that trumpet sound,
Then all of the saints of this world will be heavenbound.

Jesus said, I'll go to prepare a place for you,
That where I go you will be going too.
To a mansion on those streets of gold so fair,
you'd better be ready if you want to go up there.

Repeat Chorus:

You might ask what you got to do to go there,
to make your reservation in the air.
Just fall on your knees, ask Jesus, forgive my sins,
then he'll stand at those pearly gates and say enter in.

Repeat Chorus:
