Subject: A Song a Day (Lenten)
From: wysiwyg
Date: 09 Mar 11 - 11:57 AM

After a long creative hiatus, a couple of practical solutions have gotten that back on track-- in time to make this my own Lenten discipline. (Hardi and I do not preach deprivation in Lent!)

The songs I'll focus on (playing now on the puder) have already been my dark-winter glimpse of brighter skies. I started actual work on them yesterday and made a few minutes' quick work of the songs in boldface below (before the Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper); the rest of the list's lyric sheets are awaiting arranging notes. One of those is already "done" enough to do in a few weeks:

Springtime in Gloryland
There Is A Kingdom Coming - Brian Free & Assurance
Greatly Blessed, Highly Favored - GVB
I Know I Love You - Easters
Heart O' Mine - Dallas Holm
Jesus Will Pick You Up - Brian Free & Assurance
Jonah, Job & Moses - Oak Ridge Boys
Breathe Deep - Guy Penrod
Please Forgive Me - Jason Crabb
Yahweh - Isaacs
A Little More Time - Marty Stuart
God Bless Us All - Brucie Weil - 1953
Come Into the House of the Lord - Marty Stuart
Get Up Out of That Ground - Marty Stuart
God On The Mountain - Lynda Randle
God's Counting on Me, God's Counting on You - Pete Seeger
Gospel Story of Noah's Ark - Marty Stuart
He is Here - GVB
Hear The Voice Of My Beloved - Cynthia Clawson
I've Come Too Far - Isaacs
Move Along Train - Marty Stuart
Gods River Blues
He's My Secret Passion
I'll Remember You Love In My Prayers (AKA Curtains of Night ) - P.J. Murrihy & Seamus Shannon
Rainbow at the End of Every Storm
I Need Thee Every Hour - Randy Owen
Ready to Leave
Till I'm Too Old to Die Young
Way Down in the Bottom of Your Heart - Marty Stuart
We Are So Blessed - GVB
Without You Holding My Hand - Marty Stuart
Yes, I Know - GVB
When Zephyrs Of Heaven Shall Fan Me To Sleep
The Old Church Yard - Larry Sparks
He's Everything To Me- Larry Sparks
I've Just Seen The Rock Of Ages- Larry Sparks
The Testing Times- Larry Sparks
Everything's Alright- Larry Sparks
Family Bible- Larry Sparks
Senorita- Larry Sparks
Rivers Of Babylon - Gaither
You're My Best Friend - Gaither
Peace Be Still - Candy Christmas
Climbing up the Mountain - Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver
I Heard It First On The Radio - Gaither Vocal Band
I Need You More Today - Easters
I'd Rather Have Jesus
If I Can Help Somebody - JD Sumner
I Know Where I Am Now - Jake Hess
Born To Climb - Easters
The Broken Ones - Talleys


I was surprised to find many of the lyrics right here at Mudcat. Sound samples can be found via Google-- Hardi and I'll be working them into our Saturday Night Service. :~)

Care to join me?

Susan, are you sure you're talking about the same song? I've found a wonderful black gospel version of a song called "God is God (He Won't Change)" here, and I would like to learn it too, but it's not the song I mean.

I don't think this "God Is God" -- the one written by Steve Earle and sung by Joanm Baez -- is old enough to be called a "great old song" (though it IS a great song).

The list is expanding. The songs are beginning to form themselves up in my mind into pairs and medleys, so the output will probably stay at 2 a day. I'll be taking them on a trip that starts Sunday... funfunfun! I think I have about 90 songs in the list now, which should make a good year or two of weekly offertories. I will have time for this over the summer while classes are on hiatus, and look forward to actually DOING them once the hectic class schedule resumes in fall (3 years of classes on 2 Saturdays per month, during the academic year).

Today's pair are:

Rivers Of Babylon - Gaither

It's Alright - Candy Christmas
(well worth a listen at YouTube-- rockin'!!!)

A nice Lenty medley--strong medicine.

I just got a quote on a new autoharp I want.

... so it will start with Rivers of Babylon, continue into the chorus of It's Alright (in the same or related key), which will then modulate, eventually end with part or all of Rivers of Babylon.

Thematically it is then a sermon, the good news that now it IS safe to sing (in our "fre"e country for example), and a rallying song for singing when it is NOT safe to do so (as Black folk experience all too often).

Our Bishop's visit will coincide with the right time of year to do it, and he rocks with us (harmonica).

I figured out how to afford my 'harp. That puts me onb the road for anti-racism singing, with this song doable with or without harp.

Linda may be checking in here while I am OT and my internet access is short, to see what I'm working on, out on the road. Linda, if you do-- do feel free to post here the titles of any from the list or your own sources that "float your boat" in some Linda-special way.

There Is A Kingdom Coming - Brian Free & Assurance


Linda-- It's amazing (and encouraging of continued work) that some of the ones I've loved best and/or longest are, at heart, really simple arrangement easily demonstrated from the autoharp as we already have it set up. Enough to teach the songs to the Band and see what emerges from that nucleus.

Apparently something ripened while I wasn't looking-- (1) James offered to teach someone else how to play his old 'harp when he gets his new one; (2) my arranging skills are at a higher level than they were when I left off, hm!; (3) a member of the congregation was differently excited about some guitar lessons she's been thinking about for, oh, at least 5 years now. The holy number-- 3 confirmations of a suspicion = an affirmation of "open way" (as the Quakers call it), for further testing.

Also, some interesting medleys emerged from a Dale Jett CD I heard ydy.

So yeah, it's time I got back to this!

Linda, "Done" in this thread means an arrangement is roughed in well enough to spend 10 minutes getting it ready for the Band to hear in order to refine it together; some of the arrangements start from chords I find posted here at Mudcat. Then I "pub it up" and transpose it at home into singable keys and print those out for each member's binder. When a piece gets to that "done" point it also can sometimes be quickly whizzed in as an offertory if the melody/topic seem, erm, NEEDED for an occasion.

If I Can Help Somebody - JD Sumner

There are several more, but the binder holding those is not here today.

"Peace Be Still" has morphed and bred.... I had am amazing experience with it one morning while breaking camp near the end of my trip. Multiple experiences IN the trip (and a recent one) all hit me at once to result in a secular "peace interlude NOW" song that can be done with acc. if instrument is handy OR led a capella with non-singers making a rhythm accomp. This is a song that flows like breath; it's perfect to settle a whole group down when needed, around a common theme that it is actually safe NOW to relax into peace for at least a few minutes. Putting it with a rhythm trick I'd learned from someone else long ago resulted in a list of "group music therapy" pieces I can use in workshop settings as needed/appropriate. The songs is the key to a set of long-missing tools-- several song options even Strokebrain can pull up from memory to go with the one or two already in mind. They will all fit on a card in my purse.

I KNOW SOMETHING ABOUT GOD'S GRACE
(C) Kyla Rowland, as sung by Barbara Fairchild

1. I know something of Mercy sweet;
Too many times it has fallen on me!
It's all a part of God's Grace divine--
The Grace I can claim each day as mine.


CHO:
Oh I know something about God's Grace,
And how good it feels when He hears me pray.
Just this morning He whispered my Name...
So I know something about God's Grace.

2. When He spoke this morning, how my heart rejoiced.
My burden was lifted by the sound of His voice;
He called me into His throne room to pray...
I bowed down defeated, but rose up in Grace!


Bridge/End:

'Tis Grace that brought me safe thus far,
So I know something! I know something!
Yes so I know something about God's Grace!

Subject: Add: BOULEVARD IN HEAVEN

Date: 31 Mar 11 - 12:11 PM

BOULEVARD IN HEAVEN
By Barbara Fairchild with Jerry Kelso
As sung by Barbara Fairchild


Part 1
In a small cafe I gazed upon the pictures
Of Hollywood idols worshiped by great throngs;
In the memories of millions, they are still forever young--
But there's a sadder truth that lies beyond.
On that boulevard of broken dreams there's heartaches,
Elvis, [name], Marilyn, and James.
From pedestals of fame where they were lifted up,
The glory of the world they did await.


Part 2
There's another Boulevard in Heaven,
No sad endings, or unhappy songs--
Where Jesus mends hearts,
And He makes all things new....
On Heaven's Boulevard,
Where every dream comes true.

Leave the lonely street of sadness for the avenue of Life
Climb the stairs of Glory by following God's light.
When you reach the gates of pearl, step into the Promised Land
Jesus will be standing there to take you by the hand...
By the hand....

There's another Boulevard in Heaven,
No sad endings, or unhappy songs--
Where Jesus mends hearts,
And He makes all things new....
On Heaven's Boulevard,
Where every dream comes true.

SH

Sound sample (but buy Mudcat at http://amazon.mudcat.org!): http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000SAKX7W/ref=dm_dp_trk11

=======

The sound of this one is like a piece in a musical play.... I plan to craft a new Part 1, maybe it will be about the always-human dream of keeping our loved ones forever with us-- our Sat. night congregation is well versed in loss and they will resonate to this one, I think.

Today as I worked on it I was thinking of Janie and her father, not as the Hollywood idols in this lyric or as people dreaming of forever on this earth, but just as good people stepping out onto that Boulevard. The words for that Part 1 are not here yet.

I JUST WANT TO THANK YOU LORD
As sung by Larry Sparks on his album of that title

I just want to thank you Lord
For every time You heard me pray;
I just want to thank you for always "bein' there."
When I was so down and out,
You came along ['n'] made me want to shout,
"I just want to thank You Lord! Thank You, Lord."

If I had a thousand lives to live
I'd give them all to my Lord.
He's been so good to me-- that is the least I could afford!
He's made good times outnumber the bad;
He's been the best friend I ever had.
I just want to thank You Lord! Thank You, Lord.

[spoken interlude with picking]

I just want to thank you Lord
For every time You heard me pray;
I just want to thank you for always "bein' there."

LORD SEND YOUR ANGELS
Learned from the singings of Candy Christmas and Sheri Easter.
Adapted, edited, verses 3, 4 © 2014 Susan O. Hinton and arranged © 2014 Susan O. Hinton for The Good News-Goodtime Band.

1. When I'm alone and the light slowly fades, cold with the night closing in...
I know a shadow of Almighty wings. Lord won't you send them again?

REFRAIN:
Lord send your angels to watch over me; I'm so afraid of the dark!
Lord send your angels to watch over me... wrap me in sheltering arms.
Shield me! Keep me! Hold me safe in your arms!
Lord send your angels to watch over me... wrap me in sheltering arms.

2. Sometimes the child still inside of me cries, with fears of the dangers unseen...
And questions with answers I can't seem to find-- then you send your angels to me!

3. Deep in the darkness of winter's half light, wondering if Spring ever was
I call Your Name and Your Light fills my heart-- You send Your angels to me!

4. And at the last, when an eternal night beckons me out from this life, I'll see Your eternal day.
And as You gather me safe to Your heart, angels will sing all the way.

Knowing within us the pow'r of the risen Lord.

We were known by our love, and delighted in meekness;
We were ruled by His peace, heeding unity's call,
Joined as one body that Christ would be seen by all.

DID CHRIST O'ER SINNERS WEEP? (VIDEO)
Words: Benjamin Beddome ("He wept for me"), in A Selection of Hymns from the Best Authors, by John Rippon, 1787. Learned from the singing of Doc Watson on "On Praying Ground." The tune Doc Watson sang is unknown (Traditional). I heard this extraordinarily beautiful and strong hymn on the way home from Ohio, climbing through the dark Moshannon Valley Mountains along Route 80.Adapted, edited, verses 3,4 © 2014 Susan O. Hinton and arranged © 2014 Greg and Susan O. Hinton for The Good News-Goodtime Band. Dedicated to Mike and Cherie.

And when He was come near, He beheld the city, and wept over it? Luke 19:41

RFEFRAIN:
Did Christ o'er sinners weep,
And shall our cheeks be dry?
Let floods of holy, healing grief
Spring forth from ev'ry eye.

1. The Son of God in tears
The blessed angels see!
Those tears were shed for everyone;
They were shed for even me.

2. He wept that we might weep;
Each sin demands a tear:
In heav'n alone no sin is found;
There is no weeping there.   
      
3. O news so welcome hear,
That captives are set free!
The better flood His Gospel gives,
That heal-ed we may be.

4. This holy flood of tears
Shall cleanse the heart, the mind;
Renew our faith, let loose our love--
His Kingdom here to find.
