Encouraging people around the world since 1991 !!!


Over the years, the Lord has given me around 1400 Scripture-based choruses.
85% of these were beneficial in helping me develop the craft of songwriting, but will
mercifully remain buried in a stack of cassettes and notebooks in my music room.
Included in this index are 220 or so that might be useful in the Lord's service.
