  Chant/Song Revisited again
Posted by: jimdarlington - 07-22-2017, 08:58 PM - Forum: Lyric Critiques - Replies (4)

Lord! Lord! Lord!  [proclaimed]
O Lord, Lord  [whispered]

There comes such a time
when the body is done
for a soul to lay down and die.
There comes such a time
when the tongue can no longer
utter another lie.
 
Lord! Lord! Lord!
O Lord, Lord

In that deepest sleep
when the truth buries dreams
there's no time to wonder, "But why?"
You'll measure my faith...
Do I lift my hands to "Abba"
Or hide my face and sigh?
 
Lord! Lord! Lord!
O Lord, Lord

You know all the things
these hands have ever done.
Where, O Lord, is my alibi?
A soul was drowning
Did I watch it all from safety
only to wave goodbye?

Chorus:
We know that a stone will surely sink down,
while a bird will rise on its wings and fly
O Lord our sins feel ever so heavy
and we haven't the strength or wings to try
You died on the cross for these people and me
But, O Lord, O Lord, who exactly am I?
O Lord, who exactly am I?


Lord! Lord! Lord!
O Lord, Lord

Have I shoved a dream
to the front of a scheme
Just to gnash my teeth and to cry?
Have I pretended
to barter a promise
made to us all from on High

Lord! Lord! Lord!
O Lord, Lord

You speak and I breathe
You call and I answer
And You never tell me good-bye
I can only trust
You know in my heart
I love You more than I lie.
 
Lord! Lord! Lord!
O Lord, Lord

You made the flesh weak
But Spirit is willing
that a soul must only rely,
on a glorious dawn
when Your Word becomes wonder
'n' Your Spirit whispers why.

Chorus:
We know that a stone will surely sink down
While a bird will rise up on its wings and fly
O Lord our sins feel ever so heavy
And we haven't the strength or wings to try
You died on the cross for these people and me
But, O Lord, O Lord, who exactly am I?
O Lord, who exactly am I?

Lord! Lord! Lord!
O Lord, Lord

There's heaven, so holy,
so bright and so calm
Waiting to raise us, to fly,
who call on Jesus
Our Savior beyond any dream
To love, never to die.

Lord! Lord! Lord!
O Lord, Lord

May ever we come  
Your own blessed poor   
to mourn our weakness and sigh 
boasting but of Your forgiveness  
wishing to cause some smile divine 
ever prepared to die.

Lord! Lord! Lord!
O Lord, Lord

Facing Your Glory
the work of Your Hands
following joy, no evil to spy
To see it all from safety
All our bitterness left behind
Serving our God on high!

Chorus:
We know that a stone will surely sink down
While a bird will rise up on its wings and fly
O Lord our sins feel ever so heavy
And we haven't the strength or wings to try
You died on the cross for these people and me
But, O Lord, O Lord, who exactly am I?
Show me, O Lord, just who am I?

  only God
Posted by: Dodiee - 07-22-2017, 02:52 PM - Forum: Lyric Critiques - Replies (6)

I hate explanations - this is mostly for dear super moderator Ang - I lost my job again after nearly 8 years early June. I am looking, praising God for deliverance and the future, and rewriting my "lessons I've learned since I admitted the fact I am older than you." (sending them off by email only - if you are interested in getting on the email list I am interested in sending them to you. end of plug)

so, other than God telling me to stop asking, "why" and praise Him for deliverance, this is what He has been saying to me.

all that being said, critiques are still welcome

My Only God
© Deb Rempel July 2017
 
Verse One
Remove all earthly light
And fill my vision.
Remove my pride of life.
Be my life’s mission.
Remove my strength, oh Lord,
What I alone can do.
I come and humbly pour
All of myself in You.
 
Chorus
You are my leaning post,
My holy prop.
The One I need the most,
My only God.
You are my purpose, Lord,
My life, my job.
I fall, I fall before
My only God.
 
Verse Two
Remove what turns my head
Until I thirst for You.
Remove what takes my breath
If it’s not from Your truth.
Remove my passions, Lord.
What I’ve always dreamt of
Till all I want is more
Of Your transforming love. 
 
Chorus
 
Bridge
If all I’m going through
Draws me closer to You,
Then pull out all the stops.
Oh, be my only God.
 
Chorus

ALL: Here's one that could use benefits of your critiques please.  Thank you,  Neil


Hope in God

Verse 1
O my soul
What has got you so downcast

Brought you low?
Some affliction from the past?
Hope in God!
His compassions never fail.

Verse 2
O my soul
Trouble knows you far too well,
Taken hold.
You're discouraged I can tell
Hope in God!
He is present, O so near

 
Pre-Chorus
Let His joy supply your tears
Let His peace remove your fears


Chorus

Soul, put your hope in God
Our refuge and our strength

He hears our pray'rs
He always cares
So put your hope in God
So put your hope in God

Verse 3

O my soul
Is your future filled with dread?
Doubts control?

Let His love prevail instead
Hope in God!
His salvation will appear

Pre-Chorus

Chorus
 
Bridge

He’s our Portion, God is good
O soul just seek Him out
He frees us from all …our enemies
Soul, put your hope in God

 
Because of the Lord
You are not consumed,
His love   will never fail.
Remember His love
Make it your own
Soul, put your hope in God


Chorus

Hi everyone, 
Really sorry! It is my belief that we have a virus on the site named unifartsi. I am sure Beagle is doing everything he can to get rid of said fart. 
Thanks,

Here's one for your critiques please...Thank you.  Neil  ....please see revision below to critique...thanks, Neil

Movin’ Mountains
copyright 2017
 
 
Verse 1:
 
Jesus met a desp’rate father
Who was shaken and undone
He was anguished, deeply troubled
And concerned about his son
“Your disciples failed to heal him”
Said the father to the Lord
IF You can, Lord, I’m appealin’,
Let my son now be restored
 
Chorus

Sometimes problems are like mountains
Looming high and tow'ring tall
Movin' mountains ain't for doubtin'
Hardly takes much faith at all

Movin’ mountains ain't confoundin'
If our faith is not too small
Movin' mountains ain't astoundin'
To our God who's Lord of All

Verse 2:
 
Jesus answered caring, thoughtful
Saying IF you will believe
There is nothing that's impossible,
What you ask in faith can be
“I believe”, Lord, You can heal him
But please help my unbelief’
So the Master said to bring him
Healed his son and set him free
 
Chorus

Instrumental 
 
Verse 3: (Key Change)

Do you have some lofty summit
That is standing in your way?
You can’t seem to o’ercome it
Maybe facing every day
When its faith that you are lacking
And your mountains don't obey
There is faith that’s for the asking
And His Word will give you Faith
 
Chorus

Who Do You Say I Am


Verse 1:

Jesus, source of all forgiving
Ever living
Long before Abraham
Let these words be my confession
When you question
Who Do You Say That I Am?

Chorus:

Jesus, You’re the Christ, the One Messiah
The Son of the Living God
You are King of Saints; and King of Glory
Anointed Holy One
You're Sovereign over all the Earth
You're Master and You're Lord
You’re "I AM"
You’re "I AM"

Verse 2:

Jesus, Rock and Sure Foundation
For Salvation
Lord of Lords; Perfect Lamb
I know grace and mercy back me
When you ask me
Who Do You Say That I Am?

Chorus

Verse 3:

Prince of Life, who's now arisen
From death's prison
Some have called You a sham
Yet there's one essential matter
All must answer:
Who Do You Say That I Am?

Chorus

Tag:

You’re "I AM"
You’re "I AM"

  Walking Away
Posted by: ShannonB - 07-10-2017, 01:24 PM - Forum: Song Critiques - Replies (4)

https://soundcloud.com/user-759209468/wa...-master-v1

Hi everyone! Sorry it took me so long to get this one up. As a matter of fact, I just realized it wasn't here, or on my soundcloud yet!
I love this song, but someone told me a while back in its original state that they wished this song had a more positive ending. I added a very simple ending, "Don't walk away." which did not get included in the recording. It may come some day in the future, or I might write a completely different song for the end of the movie Smile
Lyrics are already on the site, listed under "This is How it Hurts", the original title.

Looking for a publisher for this & several other songs. Anyone have suggestions? If not, I will be studying my Songwriter's Market over the summer while I take a short break from writing. Smile

Thanks everyone!

  What Words Can’t Say
Posted by: novice62 - 07-10-2017, 01:21 PM - Forum: Lyric Critiques - Replies (7)

ALL:  Here's one for your edits, please.  Thanks!!..Neil

This one will be sort of Country Christian tune....guitar.....

See far below for latest version for your critiques please on how to improve it.   Scratch recording there as well

Chorus

Lord I’ve come again today
You can see I’ve lost my way
Ain't struggling though with how to pray

'Cuz You can hear what words can’t say
You can hear what words can’t say


Verse 1

O teach my ears to listen, Lord
To come to know Your voice
Remove my life’s distractions
Their clutter and their noise

So often Lord the things I sweat
Don't have to be so tough
No matter what ... seems I forget
Your presence says enough


Chorus

Verse 2:

I need to hear Your silence, Lord
I’ve come to realize
I'm drowning out Your answers
With all my inner cries
It can’t be said, ...much less expressed
How love speaks to the lost
Don’t ever let me second guess
Your unspeakable Cross


Bridge:

When all you hear is nothing
It may be time for trusting
In Spirit, mind and soul

For God may tell you something
In ways you don't see coming

When words just won't take hold

TAG: You can hear what words can't say
