Wink I Am Redeemed (altar call song)
Posted by: tpistilli - 03-09-2017, 12:08 PM - Forum: Lyric Critiques - Replies (3)

Here is a new worship song I just wrote. I can hear this being sung during an altar call. I have the music in my head and will post in the song critique when finished. Feel free to pick apart.   Tongue

I Am Redeemed

I come to the altar
And I fall on my knees
I pour out my heart
And you answer my plea
I am cleansed and forgiven
Now I'll start all over again

I am redeemed
I am redeemed
Washed by the blood
Eternally free
I am redeemed
I am redeemed
Through Jesus Christ
I can stand on my feet . . .
(last time) I am redeemed

  Good Day, Everyone!
Posted by: Razerocksxd - 03-09-2017, 01:15 AM - Forum: Hello My Name is... - Replies (5)

Hello!

My name is Jared, and to get right to it, I'm an aspiring musician trying hard to learn all that I can. It's been difficult for me to find others to gather with regarding my interests in music, and even harder to find the right help. Of course, that's where forums come in!

Currently, I'm at an average playing level in guitar, bass, and drums, and I'm trying to become better at piano and ocarina (peculiar choice, I know) and I also like songwriting and working with Reaper, my primary DAW. I have a vast array of virtual instruments and I really enjoy "puzzle piece-ing" things together with different ensembles. I wouldn't call myself very good at anything in particular, but I really enjoy playing and writing music, regardless of quality. I've been practicing mixing as well, so I have a lot going on all at once. I know the jack of all trades adage, but I'm hoping to get pretty good at everything I can. Hope to chat with some of you really soon!

  Resting on the Wind

I'm singing this older song of mine on Friday at the funeral of a dear saint...she asked me 22 years ago to sing this at her memorial...I had hoped I would go first..oh well, Father knows best!   made this new track...opinions welcome (before Friday if possible)...thanks, Dan

Resting on the Wind
words and music Dan Simmons

Here I am again O Lord finding doubt inside of me
I know You’re calling me to more than I ever thought that I could be
Deep within there’s this longing Lord to know Your heart and do Your will
But I need power Lord to stay the coarse, strength to climb this hill

I wanna rise to meet the morning sun
Give of my heart ‘til the race is run
I wanna flow like a river once again
Fly like an eagle... when he’s resting on the wind

Give me strength to rise O Lord, above the clouds of doubt and fear
Give me joy, give my spirit song, hold me close, draw me near
I need help to see beyond the darkened veil that’s holding me
Let me rise up on the wings of faith, set my spirit free

Cause I wanna rise to meet the morning sun
Give of my heart ‘til the race is run
I wanna flow like a river once again
Fly like an eagle... when he’s resting on the wind

I wanna soar to the highest place
Following You seeking Your face

I wanna rise to meet the morning sun
Give of my heart ‘til the race is run
I wanna flow like a river once again
Fly like an eagle... when he’s resting on the wind

They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength 
And rise upon the wings as eagles...

They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength

                                                             They're resting ...On the wind
And rise upon the wings as eagles...

They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength

And rise...resting on the wind

  Talking to Cows
Posted by: gdball - 03-07-2017, 12:40 PM - Forum: Lyric Critiques - Replies (4)

Okay... its been too long since I posted a work in progress, so Smile 


Driving to work past the shrinking fields
Subdivisions growing faster than weeds
I always liked the cows living in peace 
Though I can't but help notice the fences

Big grown eyes looked at me, and impulsively I said 
I don't envy you this wild weather, or your final end
Those eyes said they lived as they were made

(They said)

-------
My coat's as warm as sunshine and its leather underneath
The sky is my possession and this grass smells so sweet
I know who and whose I am, I know love and tender sounds 
And you're the one TALKING TO COWS
--------

As I passed the no left and speed limit signs
and sat there at the slowest traffic light
rushed through some prayers, took a quick bite
Heading to work in my regular pen

Saw my face in the mirror and I asked
When the evening sky turns dark and the last bill is paid
Will I say I lived as I was made?

(They said)

----------
My coat's as warm as sunshine and its leather underneath
The sky is my possession and this grass smells so sweet
I know who and whose I am, I know love and tender sounds 
And you're the one TALKING TO COWS
---------

As I motored down the so called freeway
As I motored down the so called freeway
As I and a few thousand too familiar strangers
motored down the so called freeway
Did you ever wonder about the toll?

(They said)

----------
My coat's as warm as sunshine and its leather underneath
The sky is my possession and this grass smells so sweet
I know who and whose I am, I know love and tender sounds 
And you're the one TALKING TO COWS
You can learn a lot TALKING TO COWS

  The Last Lonely Leaf
Posted by: Afterdarkness - 03-07-2017, 11:40 AM - Forum: Song Critiques - No Replies

I'm Back! It's been awhile. I don't want to be one of those people who sign up for a forum and then never comeback Smile

I wrote this song as a response to the Syrian Refugee Crisis, but the song applies to any people group who are persecuted. 
While not inherently "Christian Music" as labeled by many people, I wrote it from a Christian perspective (thankfully).
The Recording is soft so you may want to put on headphones.

The Last Lonely Leaf

The lyrics -

Can you hear the cries
Of the darkening skies
They howl and thunder
At the love that blunders
Oh they’ve lost it all


Can’t you see the signs
Of the soughing pines
They Whisper the names
Of the dying’ and the lame
Oh they’ve lost it all


The last lonely leaf
Is falling in our frozen world
The old man is walking
Into the west 
And he has lost it all


Can you feel the souls 
Of the fleeing people 
Their silence is strong
Yet they sing a song 
Oh they’ve lost it all


Do you know the mind
Of the little girl
Her hopes and her dreams
Torn in two
Oh she has lost it all


The last lonely leaf
Is falling in a frozen world
The old man is walking 
Into the west
And he has lost it all


The cold silver bells
Are ringing in our frozen world
The people are fleeing
From the war
Oh they have lost it all


Their hopes and their dreams,
Torn in two.

Yes they have lost it all

  First Time Here
Posted by: DavidW - 03-06-2017, 06:18 PM - Forum: Hello My Name is... - Replies (7)

Smile Hello, my name is David Warren.  I was directed to this forum by an email from CSA.  I joined at the first meeting ever held at the stadium in Arlington Texas.  At that time it was known as Texas Christian Songwriters Association.  I attended the meetings and annual workshops regularly for several years.  We saw a lot of growth and a lot of changes.  I looked forward to every meeting and shared several of my original songs, participating in every activity, excited by the inspiration and motivation of John Hershenberg and so many aspiring song crafters.  It was a joyous season of my life.  

One of the members challenged me to learn piano and keyboard in 2010.  He gave me some scales and chords to practice.  I started right away and owe so much to that gentleman.   I'm excited about the progress I have made.  My initial goal was to be able to present my songs and accompany myself on the keyboard.  In a limited way I can do that now, but I'm not slowing down.  I still try to practice every day.       

The last time I attended a meeting, it was held in Grapevine at a coffee house.   There were only 5 of us who showed up.  I never went back, partly because it is such a hard drive from where I live in Saginaw.  If you see this post and are still a part of that group please let me know how things are going by now.

I haven't completed any new material in the last few years.  I am working on a song now that has been in an 'almost  finished' state for several years.   I forgot to mention that I'm retired now and enjoying life more than ever before.

This song is 20 years old this year and I found the tracks I recorded 10 years ago and did a remix...It was always well received in concerts and I'm preaching on the subject tomorrow at church so thought I'd share it. It's dated stylistically.  And the bridge borrows a couple of lines from Sabine Baring-Gould's great old hymn "Onward Christian Soldiers"
Thanks for listening

http://soundclick.com/share.cfm?id=4985283

Warriors
Words Dan Simmons and S. Baring-Gould
Music Dan Simmons

We are soldiers in the army of the Lord
Fighting battles we can’t see
We’ve been called commissioned by the Word
To tear the strongholds down and set men free

We are warriors of the Mighty One
Called to raise the standard of God’s risen Son
Although the battles rage...we call upon His name
Knowing the victory will be won...by the warriors

We’re not fighting flesh but principalities
Rulers of a dark and sinful world
We’ll overcome them when we fight them on our knees
With prayers that rise like a flag unfurled

For the warriors of the Mighty One
Called to raise the standard of God’s risen Son
Although the battles rage...we call upon His name
Knowing the victory will be won...by the warriors

Onward Christian soldiers...marching as to war
With the cross of Jesus...going on before
Raise the royal banner...lift it to the sky
Jesus our deliverer...with the victory draweth nigh

For the warriors of the Mighty One
Called to raise the standard of God’s risen Son
Although the battles rage...we’ll call upon His name
Knowing the victory will be won...by the warriors

Are you willing to put the armor on
Stand for what you know is right
Teach your children that the battle is the Lord’s
He is their sword and shield to stand against the night

As warriors of the Mighty One
Called to raise the standard of God’s risen Son
Although the battles rage...we call upon His name
Knowing the victory will be won...by the warriors...Warriors!

  For Even Me
Posted by: ronnief63 - 03-01-2017, 09:55 PM - Forum: Song Critiques - Replies (4)

I wrote this song watching "Madea Goes To Jail" the play, and there was a part in the play where the jailer was ministering to a teenage girl and told her how much Jesus Loved her and gave his life for her, and she said "You mean, Jesus love even me?" I hope it blesses...



https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2r5m3d1Mll4


For Even Me

Lord You know I've done, some things in my past,
I'm not so proud of, so forgiveness I did ask.
The bible says that you, hear each and every prayer,
the sacrifice you made for me, shows me you really care.

Chorus:
For even me, my sins they had me bound,
even me, I want to stand on Holy Ground.
For even me, your grace has set me free,
I want heaven to be my destiny,
Lord I know you have a love for even me.

I've got loved ones, who've gone on before,
will I see them, when I walk on heaven's shore.
But Lord most of all, I want to see your face,
for it's by your love that I am saved, and by your amazing grace.

Repeat Chorus:

Bridge: 
The bible says you see, a little sparrow when it falls,
I know you've had your hand on me, you are the Lord of all.

Repeat Chorus:
