Lyrics:

Verse 1:

If this is not supposed to be
Far too diffi - cult for me
Then tell me why I cannot see
Beyond these disa - bilities
 
Pre-Chorus:
I’m weak and You’re strong
And Your grace has been sufficient all along
I should’ve known that I could trust in You
Chorus 1:
I can
I can trust in You to be my strength
 
Verse 2:
There’s nothing special about me
Turning suffering to victory
I’m not the one who’s great, you see
Jesus I’ll give You the glory
 
Pre-Chorus:
I’m weak and You’re strong
And Your grace has been sufficient all along
I should’ve known that I could trust in You
 
Chorus 2:
I can trust in You, I can trust in You
I can trust in You
 
Bridge:
When I can’t go on anymore
And I’ve nearly reached the end
I pray You’ll give me strength
So I can be content
 
Guitar Solo (like chorus): C2 – G – C2 – E m – C2
 
Pre-Chorus:
I’m weak and You’re strong
And Your grace has been sufficient all along
I should’ve known that I could trust in You
 
Chorus 3:
I can trust in You, I can trust in You
I can trust in You, I can trust in You to be my strength
Won’t You be my strength

Hi everyone!
This is not a new song, but it sounds so different from the original that I decided to start a new thread. I've haven't posted in a while, so I hope everyone will be forgiving!

  Hello Blake here from Memphis , TN Area
Posted by: bbraught - 10-31-2017, 01:23 AM - Forum: Hello My Name is... - Replies (7)

Hi Folks  I'm Blake ,  I've been playing music for many years , inspired by camp fire guitar songs my parents used to sing ,  and influenced by the music they listened to , that included a lot a great musicians.

Sang in church and high school  and college choirs , majored in Music at McNeese State university in Lake Charles, LA , that's were I really began following  the Lord Jesus as well , have an  evangelistic Pentecostal back ground    that's expanded to a more in depth scriptural knowledge over the years, but still have a foundational understanding that the power of Holy Spirit Filled worship and prayer as a key to overcoming the world and renewing our mind.

I've been writing for over 30 years all though not as a profession ,  I've lead praise and worship in small home groups, churches  and played guitar at conferences and camp meetings.

I teach and lead congregational worship from time to time , and I'm a network engineer by day. 

I also have a recording studio in my house and I've been using it and networking with other folks in the area to work on projects together.

Right now I'm learning the process from arranging , recording , mixing and mastering my own stuff and it's  a pretty steep climb , but I'm catching on.

I play guitar and bass and pretty decent on keys as well. l have  a tenor vocal range and pretty good voice I'm told.  



Truth be known I'm looking for collaborators and brothers and sisters in the Lord to praise Jesus and advance his kingdom and hopefully create space for God's people to connect with him and each other through psalms hymns and spiritual songs of our making.


I have a  few songs on sound cloud but these are earlier versions of my songs I either am already reworking or plan too.. but if you want a flavor of some of the things I've written , there are  three songs posted on sound cloud.

Look forward to meeting you folks , . 

Blake

Married , and have two kids living at home.

Let There Be Light

Intro (Bm E A D A E A)

Verse 1 (Bm E A D Bm E A A x2)

Lord, there’s never been... there will never be
A brighter light... this world could see
Then Your perfect Love shining through humanity
Your Love’s greater than... Everything 
Your Love will perfect... Your Love will set free 
So that we can live with You as One in unity 

Chorus (D E D E D E A A D E A E D A E A)

Let there be light... let Your Love shine
For the whole world... for all to see
Let there be light... so this world might see and believe
Let there be light... let Your Love shine
Lord, let it shine so bright
Let there be light... Lord, let Your Love shine through me

Verse 2 (Bm E A D Bm E A A x2)

Lord, You’ve always been... You will always be
The greatest display... of love that’s been seen
How You gave Your life for us all to believe
Through Your sacrifice... You paid the price
We are no longer bound by sin in our lives
You have rescued us with Your Love... You set us free

Chorus (D E D E D E A A D E A E D A E A)

  Whenever I Praise (new worship song)
Posted by: tpistilli - 10-27-2017, 02:19 PM - Forum: Lyric Critiques - Replies (2)

Whenever I Praise

Verse 1:
When the world decides to hitch a ride on my shoulders
And a dark, oppressive cloud hangs overhead
I can stand my ground unshaken like a good soldier
If I'll simply praise like Jesus Christ has said

Chorus:
Praise, a sword in my hand
Praise, the oil in my lamp
Praise, a part of God's plan
I've got victory as long as I...

Praise, a sword in my hand
Praise, the oil in my lamp
Praise, a part of God's plan
I've got victory whenever I praise

Verse 2:
When I find my soul is vexed by lies of the devil
And it's seems my vision's darker than before
Then I've got to take my worship to a new level
I will clap and sing much louder than before

Chorus:
Praise, a sword in my hand
Praise, the oil in my lamp
Praise, a part of God's plan
I've got victory as long as I...

Praise, a sword in my hand
Praise, the oil in my lamp
Praise, a part of God's plan
I've got victory whenever I praise

(Ending)
Whenever I praise, praise, praise
whenever I praise, praise, praise
whenever I praise, praise, praise
I'll give Him my praise

  Original Song: Take My Life
Posted by: faith101 - 10-27-2017, 11:04 AM - Forum: Song Critiques - Replies (2)

Hi, everybody. After a very rough summer, I'm back at writing songs. I suppose what I'm most looking for here are comments on the arrangement. It's my first purely acapella song. 3-part harmony, all me. Does it work? Do the different textures work? There's a bit of dissonance. Does it jar at all?

Obviously, if you have any wisdom about anything else (harmony, melody, lyrics, etc.), please go for it.

Bless you guys. Every round of comments really does influence what I do next.

“Dwell”
Songwriter: Terrance McCoy

https://app.box.com/s/fo222a8j824rnfeombyez855pf8x740i

Verse 1:

There is now no condemnation
God, You've got all my allegiance
I have proven - I cannot  do it - on my own
There is power in Your presence
When You walk in, I am breathless
You take over 
I am overwhelmed with who You are


Pre-Chorus

I’m trusting You, my God with ev’rything


Chorus:

I just wantcha to ….Dwell in me
I really wantcha to ….Dwell,
forever in me
In my thoughts, in my words, in my moves
I want it to be You
I want You
I wantcha to ….Dwell


 Verse 2:

When You lead me in tomorrow
If we dance or endure sorrow
I am trusting - all of Your ways
Ev’ry single day


Bridge:

Wontcha come and…. breath in me
Wontcha come and…. breath in me
Wontcha be a….-alive in me
Wontcha be a….-alive in me

SO PERSONAL TODAY

Thy word is so personal today  
Not a thorn unto my tongue.
Thy word is so personal today
Not a thorn unto my tongue.

When I talk in school
The kids don’t think I’m cool.
So, my words deny Thee.
Oh, I love my cell.
My party line was hell.
Please don’t be untimely.

Thy word is so personal today  
Not a thorn unto my tongue.
Thy word is so personal today
Not a thorn unto my tongue.

I am not a freak
Nor speaketh like a geek,
Please give me some enlightening.
Please Thou be my guide
Thy word not put aside.
 
Guide me all the day.
Not my will doth I pray.
So more like Thou I will become.

Thy word is so personal today  
Not a thorn unto my tongue.
Thy word is so personal today
Not a thorn unto my tongue.

Nothing shalt I fear
As long as Thou art near;
Be Thou near me to the end.

Thy word is so personal today
Not a thorn unto my tongue.
Thy word is so personal today
Not a thorn unto my tongue.
Not a thorn unto my tongue.
You’re so personal today.
