  Your Grace Is A Song
Posted by: SquareElvis - 04-18-2017, 07:47 AM - Forum: Lyric Critiques - Replies (6)

Your Grace Is A Song

Verse 1

Lord, I can't escape
Your warm embrace
It's making me whole
It's saving my soul
Your gentle voice
Cuts through the noise
I'm led by every word
I'm fed by what is heard

Pre-Chorus

Oh Lord, I'm amazed
Of all You do
I know I can't repay
But here's my song to You

Chorus 

Here's my song 
My offering
For all that You've done
And all that You're doing
Every word
My heart sings
Of the grace.... (of the grace)
Of the grace 
That You've given me

Verse 2 

Lord, come what may
Your love won't change
Your grace and your mercy
Will never desert me
You'll always be
Here with me
Through the valleys and storms
I'm safe in Your arms

Chorus 

Bridge

Lord, Your grace is a song
Lord, Your grace is a song
Lord, Your grace is a song
For me
Lord, Your grace is a song
Lord, Your grace is a song
Lord, Your grace is a song
For me to sing

Chorus

  Blessings Along The Way
Posted by: Timpaul - 04-15-2017, 05:30 PM - Forum: Song Critiques - Replies (7)

https://soundcloud.com/timpaul-2/sets/bl...ng-the-way

Wake up in the morning, to face another day
Clouds are hanging low won't go away
Make your morning coffee, shower and get dressed
Seems like nothing's changed.
But if you just look around and open up your eyes
You will see the blessings along the way

Follow where he leads you, don't fight him along the way
The road it might be rough, but take it anyway
And he won't let you down, if you let him lead the way
Enjoy the blessings along the way

No one said it's easy, walking in your shoes
Sometimes it seems we win, other times we lose
But he won't let you down if you let him lead the way
Enjoy the blessings along the way

It's hard to lose a loved one, so hard to understand 
How does this all fit, in Gods master plan
But if you just look around and open up your eyes
You will see the blessing along the way, along the way
Blessings along the way, along the way
Blessings along the way

  God of the Impossible - any critique
Posted by: Raeshelparker - 04-14-2017, 01:06 AM - Forum: Lyric Critiques - Replies (6)

My brother, mother and I are collaborating on a new song....

Here is his version, mom's version and my version below.  Which one do you like and why?

His version

V1
You walked on water
You parted the red sea
You silenced the wind and the waves

Pre Chorus
There is nothing impossible, for you my king
There is nothing impossible for you

Chorus
You're the God of the impossible
You're the God of the impossible
There is nothing you have not conquered
No Matter the chal - en - ge
You defeated every one at the cro--ah-oss
You're God of the Impossible

V2
you created light with your word
you breathed into clay making man
You left your throne and came into the world

Chorus
You're the God of the impossible
You're the God of the impossible
There is nothing you have not conquered
No Matter the chal - en - ges
You defeated every one at the cro--ah-oss
You're God of the Impossible

v3
You told the lame man get up and walk
Made mud to heal the blind
You hung on the cross defeating every sin


Chorus
You're the God of the impossible
You're the God of the impossible
There is nothing you have not conquered
No Matter the chal - en - ges
You defeated every one at the cro--ah-oss
You're God of the Impossible

  This Is Heaven
Posted by: tpistilli - 04-12-2017, 04:30 PM - Forum: Lyric Critiques - Replies (4)

Feel free to critique   Cry

This Is Heaven

Verse 1:
I wonder what it's like
To walk on streets of gold
Experiencing life
Where time has no control
To live without this fleshly man of death
having only thoughts of righteousness
Although this place is hard to comprehend
I'll hold this blessed hope with confidence

Chorus:
This, this is Heaven
This, this is Heaven
No more sorrow, no more pain
Every tear's been wiped away
All the former doubts and fears are gone
Then I'll see my Savior's face
Full of wonder of His grace
Oh to finally hear those words "Well done"
Welcome home
This is Heaven

Verse 2:
I'll take my final breath
And reach the finish line
This passage we call death
A temporary lie
For all the battles won and sometimes lost
Thank God I never failed to count the cost

I'm going to a place prepared for me
And with eternal eyes I'll finally see

Music burning my sacred songs
Posted by: Oyebowale - 04-12-2017, 11:02 AM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (6)

For the past 24 years, I have written over 1500 sacred gospel songs. As the muse comes, any piece of paper I can find around I write the lyric and I can remember the melody of all the songs. My dream is to get somone or a company to produce the songs and make the songs available to the world, but I couldn't get a producer. I  have now decided to make a bonefire of the songs because I'm getting old. Sometime I hear the songs in my dream and I will quickly rise up to remember the lyric and melody and I will write down the songs.I have decided to make a bonefire of the songs because since I dont have the money to pay for all the producer at least I will be free from the pains of having to carry these of papers with the songs which I sing alone and cry about everyday.
