inner feelings when I  suddenly received so many songs from your web site.

Our choir is practicing two songs, "You Are My Shepherd" and "I Was Glad",  in English.  
We are also doing those two songs in Urdu..   I would like to...  send you a recording and photo of our group.

All of creation PRAISE HIS NAME
And we God’s people GIVE HIM THANKS
Blessed be the Lord AMEN!! (Repeat to beginning)

 

I teach music at a local church school for boys whose ages range
between 12 and 16 years. As such I am always on the lookout for songs  with a
religious message but which of course have music that appeals to the younger generation. 

From what I could see from your website, many of your songs are just that.  
By the way. I taught my students
"As The Trees" and it was a great hit.  Well done! 
We shall be singing it during the Fifth Formers' graduation day in June.
(Carmen, from Malta)

 

THE LORD GOD OF HOSTS
(2 part round, Amos 4:13)

He who forms mountains and creates the wind
and declares to man what are His thoughts
He who makes dawn into darkness
and treads on the high places of the earth

The Lord God of Hosts is His name
The Lord God of Hosts is His name
He treads on the high places of the earth
The Lord God of Hosts is His name

 

...many thanks for the great quantity 
of Christian songs that I found on your site

"Have You Ever Heard A Duck Praise The Lord ".   So many were asking

Uncle Ralph's song".   I have translated this good children song 
into URDU." 
(Samuel,  from Pakisan)

Come, come to Me all who are weary and heavy laden
Come, come to Me and I will give you rest

Come to Me,
Take My yoke,
Learn from Me

Goodness and mercy shall follow me
All the days of my life (repeat first verse)

 

We are first grade teachers at a private Episcopal school.  Our students 
study the fruit of the spirit, memorizing scripture and prayers monthly.  
We are doing a culminating activity for our Chapel service and would 
love to sing your song... "The Fruit Of The Spirit".  

(Terry & Elizabeth, Trinity School in Midland,
Texas)

 

THE FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT
(3 part round, from Galatians 5:22-23)

The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace,
Patience, kindness and goodness
The fruit of the Spirit is faithfulness,
Gentleness, self-control

Holy Spirit fill me
More like Jesus may I be
Living only for His glory
Telling others about Him

For Jesus is love, joy, peace,
Patience, kindness and goodness
Jesus is faithfulness,
Gentleness, self-control

The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace,
Patience, kindness and goodness
The fruit of the Spirit is faithfulness,
Gentleness, self-control

 

"I just want to thank you for your wonderful website and lovely music.  My
daughter, Valerie (16), is helping to lead the children's program for a
group of kids in the country of Turkey!  The theme verse is on the fruit of
the spirit.  We were searching the web for songs and crafts when we came
across your site.  Valerie has been practicing the song all week and it's
such a catchy tune that I find myself humming it all the time."
 
(Sandra, from
Turkey)

 

SERVICE SONG

As I’m singing, I try to do my best
For singing is a service of praise and thankfulness
With my whole heart, I’m living for my Lord
He’s the one I do all things for

2. As I’m helping...

3. As I’m studying...

4. As I’m playing...

 

HUSH MY LITTLE LOVED ONE

Hush my little loved one it’s time now to rest
Throughout the day you have given each task your best
You’ll need strength to face tomorrow
Hush child, time now to rest
You’ll need strength to face tomorrow
Hush child, time now to rest

While you are asleep God will watch over you
His guardian angels protecting His Spirit will soothe
In the morning, when you awaken
We’ll be close by your side
In the morning, when you awaken
We’ll be close by your side
(repeat first verse)

 

MY FATHER CAN DO ANYTHING

My Father can do anything
My Father can do anything
He can help the flowers of the field grow
He can answer all my prayers
My Father can do anything!!

2. He can make the sun shine on any day He wants...

3. He can meet all our needs financially...

4. He can heal my body when I'm sick...

 

WHEN I AM AFRAID
(Psalm 56:3, 4, 9-11)

When I am afraid I put my trust in You
In God, whose Word I praise
In the Lord I have put my trust (repeat)

This I know that God is for me
When I’m with Him nothing can harm me

When I am afraid I put my trust in You
In God, whose Word I praise
In the Lord I have put my trust

I just thought I would send a note thanking you for allowing your song 
“When I Am Afraid” to be in the public domain for non-profit use.  It’s a great song 
and aligns perfectly with the Psalm I am trying to teach my pre-schoolers at church.  
I found it late last night needing a song for this morning.  Since you had both the 
audio recording and the sheet music available I was easily able to learn the 
song in order to teach it today. 
(Rachel, from Gordon College in Massachusetts)

 

GOD IS OUR REFUGE
(from Psalm 46)

God is our refuge and our strength
A very close help in times of trouble
He’s our fortress and deliverer
Our protection in the battle,
our protection in the battle

Though the earth should be moved
Though mountains slip into the sea
Though all nations fall apart
We’ll not fear, the Lord is here
We’ll not fear, the Lord is here
(repeat first part)

 

THOSE WHO WAIT FOR THE LORD
(Isaiah 40:31)

Those who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength
Those who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength

They will mount up with wings like eagles
mount up with wings like eagles
mount up with wings like eagles
They shall renew their strength

2. They will run and not get tired...

3. They will walk and not become weary...

 

LIKE THE RISING SUN

Your love is like the rising sun
Your love is like the rising sun
Your love is like the rising sun
Ever faithful

Your joy, like flowers in the Spring
Your joy, like flowers in the Spring
Your joy, like flowers in the Spring
So delightful

Your peace, a shelter from the storm
Your peace, a shelter from the storm
Your peace, a shelter from the storm
Safe and restful

Your love is like the rising sun
Your joy, like flowers in the Spring
Your peace, a shelter from the storm
And Lord we’re grateful
(repeat this verse)

And Lord we’re grateful, Lord we’re so grateful

 

 I help with a church youth group and have been looking for a
better way to help remember the 23rd Psalm. I wanted a
nice musical version to learn as a song.

Your "Song to My Shepherd" seems perfect.

No words can express how happy and excited I am listening
and choosing hymns I would be using in church for our little ones. 
The tunes indeed are very good, easy, and catchy that 
the children of our parish would pick up very easily...

I have already picked a few from your "Songbook 2"
i.e., "Holy Holy Holy", "Peace I Give To You", "Doxology Round" 
(I really like this one), "Children of Light" (I like this one too). 
Each one of your songs are simply beautiful and deserves publishing...
