WHERE WOULD I BE WITHOUT YOU (Singing My Song)

little girl thinking

So, after many attempts, and trying to record between our roof expanding and contracting, squawking birds, cars passing, trains in the distance, and oh! not to forget my voice going up and down lol (I knew how I wanted it to sound, getting it there was another thing) etc etc … I recorded this on my phone. May it bless you.

IF YOU CAN’T LISTEN ON THIS PAGE, PLEASE DOUBLE CLICK ON MUSIC IMAGE BELOW, AND IT WILL TAKE YOU TO YOUTUBE.

Chorus
Oh! Where would I be
Without You
Without You
Lost and alone
Knowing nothing
About You
About You
Where would I be

You still my heart
When its beats are frightened
You still my heart
Given love, now lightened

You still my mind
When its thoughts are scattered
You still my mind
It’s no longer shattered

Chorus
Oh! Where would I be
Without You
Without You
Lost and alone
Knowing nothing
About You
About You
Where would I be

You still my way
When its footsteps wander
You still my way
Now no wish to falter

You still my soul
It was lost without You
You still my soul
Blessed me with future new

Chorus
Oh! Where would I be
Without You
Without You
Lost and alone
Knowing nothing
About You
About You
Where would I be

WRAPPED IN RED … A New Christmas Song

Hi all, I played around with the words from previous posting, and added a little melody …

Wrapped in red, crowned in gold
The sweetest love song, ever told
Born for you, born for me
Reconciled to waiting Father
Cost Him all, this Gift is free

This Christmas day, love, love
One another, ’cause we’re given
Heaven’s love, like none other
Oh Jesus, I believe

Wrapped in red, crowned in gold
The sweetest love song, ever told
Wrapped in red, crowned in gold
Wrapped in red, crowned in gold

This Christmas day, believe
Oh see, receive, His free love, red
And gold, all worldly gifts, leave
Oh Jesus, I now see

Wrapped in red, crowned in gold
The sweetest love song, ever told
Wrapped in red, crowned in gold
Wrapped in red, crowned in gold

Born to die, His life flowed
Then crowned in gold, the stars in His
Smiling eyes, still light the way
Oh Jesus, I receive

Wrapped in red, crowned in gold
The sweetest love song, ever told
Wrapped in red, crowned in gold
Wrapped in red, crowned in gold

Wrapped in red, crowned in gold
The sweetest love song, ever told
Born for you, born for me
Reconciled to waiting Father
Cost Him all, this Gift is free
Cost Him all, this Gift is free

ON ANGEL WINGS (YT)

ON ANGEL'S WINGS

One day soon, we’ll be in glory
Far beyond the reach of mortal man
No more crying or unrelenting pain
Just following in the footsteps of the great I AM

Chorus
Oh! Jesus until then
Cover my oft sad heart
With love blessed
Flowing down from heaven
Sent on angel wings
With love blessed
Flowing down from heaven
Sent on angel wings

One day soon, we’ll see His face
A face that once beheld no beauty
A face so broken, so broken
Man could not look upon Him without feeling guilty

Chorus
Oh! Jesus until then
Cover my oft sad heart
With love blessed
Flowing down from heaven
Sent on angel wings
With love blessed
Flowing down from heaven
Sent on angel wings

One day soon dear Lord, one day
Even those whose guilt did not pierce them
At the cross, at the cross, will bow
And confess that Jesus is Lord, heaven’s priceless gem

Chorus
Oh! Jesus until then
Cover my oft sad heart
With love blessed
Flowing down from heaven
Sent on angel wings
With love blessed
Flowing down from heaven
Sent on angel wings

The pearls, the gold, the jewels above
The gift of life that God’s sweet love brings
Until then when we meet Him there
The gifts of our dear Saviour shine on angel wings

On angel wings, on angel wings
Lord lift and surround us with angel wings
With angel wings, with angel wings
Laced with the treasures of His grace as heaven sings

I’LL NEVER BE ALONE AGAIN (A Song of Hope and Love and Peace) … My Rendition

I'LL NEVER BE ALONE AGAIN

Chorus
My love, my love
You captivated my heart
You drew from above
Shone light in my pain
And whispered, My child, My child
You never need to fear again
You’ll never be alone again

Oh! Lord are You there?
Oh! Lord do You care?
I can’t see You
How can I possibly find You
If my eyes are closed and looking elsewhere?

Chorus
My love, my love
You captivated my heart
You drew from above
Shone light in my pain
And whispered, My child, My child
You never need to fear again
You’ll never be alone again

Oh! Lord I need help
Oh! Lord I need help
I can’t hear You
How can I possibly know You
When my ears are blocked with the world’s care?

Chorus
My love, my love
You captivated my heart
You drew from above
Shone light in my pain
And whispered, My child, My child
You never need to fear again
You’ll never be alone again

Oh! Lord where are you?
Oh! Lord here I am
I can’t feel You
How can I possibly trust You
When my heart is so cold and drawn elsewhere?

Chorus
My love, my love
You captivated my heart
You drew from above
Shone light in my pain
And whispered, My child, My child
You never need to fear again
You’ll never be alone again

Oh! Lord I do hurt
Oh! Lord I’m afraid
No fragrance abounds
How can I possibly sense You
When each breath is clothed in darkness’s fear?

Bridge
Blue emotions unveiled before me
Tears clear a way for the peace of Your steps
Now I know that my Saviour adores me
And forever I’m wonderfully kept

Chorus
My love, my love
You captivated my heart
You drew from above
Shone light in my pain
And I whispered, dear Lord
I will never fear again
I’ll never be alone again
No, I’ll never be alone again

WHEN JOY CAME A-CALLING (Me Singing the Song of a Happy Heart) … HAPPY NEW YEAR

Hi everyone,
I’m being very brave here … singing for all the world to see. I could pick out all of the flaws; but I won’t. I had fun singing it (I did try to do it again; but it just wasn’t the same. Sometimes ‘perfection’ is just not meant to be). My prayer is that this will bring a smile, and a maybe a little flutter of joy, if but to one beating heart across this vast place we call home.

Chorus
Oh! When joy came a-calling
’Twas such a beautiful day
’Cause my heart’s joy had left me
Now it’s back and here to stay

This happy heart rejoices
This happy heart, it sings
This happy heart remembers
The joy-bells that it rings

Chorus
Oh! When joy came a-calling
’Twas such a beautiful day
’Cause my heart’s joy had left me
Now it’s back and here to stay

This happy heart releases
This happy heart, it brings
This happy heart renounces
Blueness no longer clings

Chorus
Oh! When joy came a-calling
’Twas such a beautiful day
’Cause my heart’s joy had left me
Now it’s back and here to stay

This happy heart’s reclining
This happy heart, it springs
This happy heart reconciles
With the heart of my King’s

Bridge
Joy, it leaves
Sometimes for a season
Then it returns
And brings with it
Love and peace and healing
Yes, sweet love and peace and healing

This happy heart reconfirms
This happy heart has wings
This happy heart reaffirms
This happy, happy heart

Chorus
Oh! When joy came a-calling
’Twas such a beautiful day
’Cause my heart’s joy had left me
Now it’s back and here to stay

ON THE EVE OF A MIRACLE (A New Christmas Song with Lyrics)

On the eve of a miracle
When hopelessness cried silently
The people’s hearts, they were breaking
Waiting for promised liberty

So many years had passed them by
Each Mother, Father shared the news
But life grew harder, tears fell too
Where is He, the King of the Jews

Chorus
On the eve of a miracle
We’ve been wanting help to come
Others have said it’s impossible
There’s nothing can be done
But just look up, the answer’s on its way
And one day soon, we’ll sing
This is the eve of our miracle day
He loves us too, it’s our miracle day

Then pure love shone forth one dark night
Salvation wrapped in perfection
He appeared; but they didn’t know
He was sent for adoration

Oh! Little Babe of Bethlehem
They desired to seek Your sweet face
Forgive them not recognizing
Heaven’s gift of mercy and grace

Chorus
On the eve of a miracle
We’ve been wanting help to come
Others have said it’s impossible
There’s nothing can be done
But just look up, the answer’s on its way
And one day soon, we’ll sing
This is the eve of our miracle day
He loves us too, it’s our miracle day

When eyes were shut, they couldn’t see
Or know what they were waiting for
Open eyes Lord, that we may see
The promises You have in store

And so it is, for us today
Longing for light in the dark night
And longing for needs to be met
Body, soul and spirit tonight

Chorus
On the eve of a miracle
We’ve been wanting help to come
Others have said it’s impossible
There’s nothing can be done
But just look up, the answer’s on its way
And one day soon, we’ll sing
This is the eve of our miracle day
He loves us too, it’s our miracle day
Yes, He loves us too, it’s our miracle day

SNOW’S A-FALLING, CAN YOU HEAR IT CALLING? (NEW CHRISTMAS SONG WITH LYRICS)

Look out the window
Oh! My dear sweet child
The snow’s a-falling
Singing come outside

Look out the window
The sky may be grey
Just rug up, be warm
And come out to play

Chorus
Snows a-falling
Can you hear it calling?
Snows a-falling
Christmas lights are glowing
Christmas music joins in
And snowflakes are a-landing
Watch very carefully and
They’ll fall, right where you’re standing
Watch very carefully and
They’ll fall, right where you’re standing

Find coat and mittens
And your bright red shoes
It’s winter playtime
Let the snow amuse

Catch little snowflakes
Catch them, and you’ll see
Cold, cold and softness
Christmas love, so free

Chorus
Snows a-falling
Can you hear it calling?
Snows a-falling
Christmas lights are glowing
Christmas music joins in
And snowflakes are a-landing
Watch very carefully and
They’ll fall right where you’re standing
Watch very carefully and
They’ll fall right where you’re standing

You’ve built a snowman
And a snow angel
Giggled and jumped high
But now feel a chill

Look in the window
The fire’s a-warming
Sweet Christmassy treats
They’re now a-calling

Chorus
Snows a-falling
Can you hear it calling?
Snows a-falling
Christmas lights are glowing
Christmas music joins in
And snowflakes are a-landing
Watch very carefully and
They’ll fall right where you’re standing
Watch very carefully and
They’ll fall right where you’re standing

THAT HOLY NIGHT (NEW CHRISTMAS SONG WITH LYRICS)

Let us be joyous
Come let us see
All that our Saviour
Promised to be

He came to give us beautiful sight
New melodies to sing
He opened doors that held us captive
And now sweet gifts we bring
And now sweet gifts we bring

’Cause our hearts, He healed
Our life, He sealed
When truth was revealed
Creation kneeled
Creation kneeled

Chorus
’Twas the night, that holy night
We’ve all be waiting for
’Twas the night, that holy night
The angels, Love adored
Love adored, Love adored
The angels, Love adored

Oh! Come let us praise
Heaven’s delight
Hymns of thanksgiving
Sing Holy Night

That holy night, so perfectly timed
The stars reflected love
Yes, Jesus was born, Immanuel
Immanuel means love
Immanuel means love

’Cause our hearts, He healed
Our life, He sealed
When truth was revealed
Creation kneeled
Creation kneeled

Chorus
’Twas the night, that holy night
We’ve all be waiting for
’Twas the night, that holy night
The Father’s love, restored
Love restored, love restored
The Father’s love, restored

’Twas the night
That holy night
