  Light Up The Darkness
Posted by: bob53086 - 02-19-2017, 05:22 PM - Forum: Song Critiques - Replies (1)

Hello all,

Here are the lyrics and SoundCloud link for our new song: Light Up The Darkness




Light up the darkness 

Go show them your light 

So light up the darkness 

And make it shine bright 

Light up the darkness 

Oh run shadows run 

So chase out the darkness 

As Jesus has done 

Just as Je-sus has done 




They live in the darkness and don't see the light 

They struggle to be nice and then curse and fight 

The world has it's troubles but look in the mirror 

And tell me what you see shows Jesus in here 




They yell, scream and protest then riot the streets 

They argue and curse even at the police 

We see in the news all the things they have done 
But what were your actions to show them the Son 

And oh, gotta let your light shine out 
Gotta let your light shine out for all to se-e

Hey guys,

My name's Greg Wilson and I'm a Christian/Messianic singer-songwriter (artist name = Bought With A Price) -  residing in Wichita, KS.  You can check out my music
if you'd like at http://www.boughtwithaprice.bandcamp.com...  I enjoy setting scripture to music, including Hebrew scripture, and a little Greek.

I seek for my music to adequately express the text, and glorify the truth.

I starting writing songs in high school, and am 26 now.

Would be nice to make some connections on here.

God bless,

Greg Wilson

This song was birth out of a very rough time...the production quality wasn't so great, but it is an example of my work nonetheless...I pray that it ministers to you. I would love any feedback...thanks!

  Just Your Average Everyday Songwriter...
Posted by: Mario Jenkins - 02-14-2017, 04:24 PM - Forum: Hello My Name is... - Replies (3)

Greetings CSN...my name is Mario Jenkins...I'm from Lakeland Florida & I'm just your average everyday keyboard player/songwriter who's not necessarily looking to "get discovered" or "make it big".  I just am looking to share my gift with a few like-minded, talented Christian artist who would give their honest opinion of my work, as I offer the same for theirs.  I've written upwards to 100+ songs during my 30 year career as a musician...my genre is a mixture of Contemporary Gospel (Fred Hammond; Israel Houghton; Keith Thomas) w/ some Smooth Jazz influences (Brian Simpson; Dave Koz; Boney James; David Benoit)...I am looking to tap into (& learn more about) the more modern Worship music of today (Planet Shakers; Chris Tomlin; Jesus Culture), as to adapt my writing style to reflect a more relevant sound.  Anyway...looking forward to the insight & fellowship here at CSN.  God bless!

  We Need A Miracle
Posted by: SquareElvis - 02-14-2017, 12:10 PM - Forum: Lyric Critiques - Replies (2)

We Need A Miracle 

Verse 1

Lord, I'm so grateful
You're allowing me to see
Part of Your plans
While I'm asleep in my dreams
You're showing me the one
That You need to see
Who's down and out 
Desperately in need


If it is in Your will
While he's lying still
Lord please
Let Your healing start
Mend his weary head
Give him back Your breathe
Lord please 
Heal his broken heart


We need a miracle 
Right now
Lord, let Your healing rain 
Fall down
We need healing hands 
To touch this man
Lord, our hearts are crying out
We need a miracle 
Right now

Verse 2

Lord, I'm so grateful 
You brought me here to see
An unending love 
For this man next to me
I know it wasn't chance 
I'm standing by his side
Praying Please God
Open up his eyes 




Where two or three are gathered 
In Your name, You're here with us
Right now Lord we need to see
Your resurrecting love
Our hearts are crying out
For a miracle right now

  You Are All I Need
Posted by: SquareElvis - 02-14-2017, 12:03 PM - Forum: Song Critiques - Replies (7)

You Are All I Need

Verse 1

There is nothing in this life
More valuable than You
There is nothing that shines
Brighter than You
There is nothing that compares
To Your sweet love
That You have given me Jesus


I need You
Like a lyric needs a song
Without You Lord
The melodies gone


You are my ray of sunshine
On a cloudy day
My comfort in the storm
My healing rain
If tomorrow never comes
It would be all right with me
You are all I need
You are all I need, Jesus

Verse 2

There is nothing in this world
Greater than Your grace
I stand in awe
Completely amazed
That the power of Your touch
Your healing hands
Have save my soul
Changed who I am




I need You Lord
More than words can say
More than anything 
In this life that fades away
I need You Lord
To carry me through it all
So I won't fall
But Lord most of all
I need You, I need You woah oh
I need you

  Record Your Song!
Posted by: AprilAudio - 02-14-2017, 10:10 AM - Forum: Recording Help and Tips - No Replies

Hey All,

I'm up here in East Coast Canada and we just got blasted with a huge storm...I'm stuck in the house with plenty of time to catch up on forums etc!

I just wanted to show you guys an example of some of the work that I have completed lately so that you can get an idea of what I could do with your songs if you wanted.
Just to give you some background info - I've been involved with worship music for the past 15 years now. I was the bass player in a band called Bluetree - we wrote the song "God of this City" which became a hit for Chris Tomlin and the Passion movement etc. I left Bluetree and then played bass and electric guitar for a guy called Robin Mark - he wrote the song Days of Elijah which you may know. I have co-written a few songs with Robin as well and he has placed them on several of his albums. I am now in the process of recording my first EP which should be ready in a few months which is exicitng. Anyway, one of my passions is producing worship music - taking peoples songs and helping them structure it in the right way, sorting out the chords, coming up with hooks etc. I started a small online business a few years ago to do this and have access to a wider reach of songwriters.
Here is an example of something that I completed for someone a few months ago:


Anyway, if any of you guys want to get in touch and have me produce some of your songs then get in touch! I do this as paid work but I always give discounts to people involved in worship.
Get in touch if your interested!

A new song in my favorite style about the holy city...all comments and critiques are valued

words and music Dan Simmons

In a city called Jerusalem
On a hill called Calvary
Love was nailed upon a old rugged cross
Dying there between two thieves

He lived...He died 
And they laid Him in the grave
In a city called Jerusalem
The Son of God was slain


In a city called Jerusalem
From a borrowed empty tomb
Jesus came forth from the darkest hell
Like a newborn from a womb

He lived...He died
And He rose from the grave
In a city called Jerusalem
Life was born again

(City of David on a hill)

In a city called Jerusalem
He will come to rule and reign

He lives...on high
And He reigns forevermore
In a city called Jerusalem
The city of the Lord
The city of the Lord
