Scripture is sooo cool !

The songs on this page are all original works. They are available for listening online or downloading, and are 'MIDI' format.

MIDI? What's that???

Why Use MIDI?

These MIDI representations are the base arrangements of the songs. MIDI technology allows me to be more elaborate with my arrangements, and to use instruments that I otherwise could never use. Plus, the use of MIDI allows the songs to be used on web pages, and downloaded quickly. I'm also finding that (in recording the tracks for the upcoming Cd), these arrangements are a great starting point.

What if I like a song... Can I use it?

Probably! Thank you for listening, I'm glad you like it and it's very gratifying, especially if the song made you feel closer to God in some way, contact me and let's talk about it! I've also yet to actually charge anyone for using a song in over two years... But please understand this... these are not public domain works, they are copyrighted. They will probably also be listed with CCLI soon. In order to protect the songs themselves, and also my rights as the song's author, it must be this way, so I need to be contacted first.

These songs were inspired by God speaking to me. Some people may have a problem with this statement, but I truly believe this, and I believe each song represents a message that God wants to get heard. But the fact that he spoke to me about it (as opposed to another song writer), means that the finished product will be a combination of His inspiration plus whatever musical skills that I have, mixed in with my own particular musical background (Blues, Bluegrass, Jazz, Classical, Rock and Pop) The same inspiration given to someone who was proficient in writing other different musical styles (like Polka's.... Polka Praise! :-) would most likely produce a totally different musical work than what I would come up with, even though the inspiration was the same. Also, in considering that I have 6 children and I am usually broke :-), I would like to be able to contribute to my families income using my musical skills, as God would grant me that I could do so. So, I do not think it is wrong to desire a fair workman's wage in exchange for my participation in writing these songs.

For these reasons, these songs are not public domain. I am trusting in the integrity of anyone who downloads them to act in accordance with the evaluation agreement, and to contact me prior to using these songs in any manner that would violate that agreement.

Please see below for specific copyright considerations on these songs, and contact me at your convenience if you're interested in using any of them.

To whoever takes the time to listen to these songs, regardless if you're a Christian or not, Thank You! :-)

All Forgiving God Click to hear MIDI

2 Chr 7:14 if my people, who are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. (ASV) (CHORUS) I owe my life to the all for-giv-ing God I owe my life to the all for-giv-ing God I owe my life to the all for-giv-ing ... I can-not keep still this day ... I must speak of the Lord this way ... Speak an-y time, and an-y way... Burn my heart (a fire put to me ) Use my voice ( a mes-sage put through me ) Cleansed my sin ( through blood that was ho-ly ) Gave me life ( for one pur-pose on-ly ) Spread the word ( to all that donít know Him ) In the streets, pro-claim the name JE-SUS! Repeat CHORUS In trou-bled times, some pray to frauds ... No-thing can match the Lord, our God ... All ete-rnal, and mer-ci-ful ... Saw my heart ( the filth that it did breed ) Put in me ( the truth as a new seed ) Loved me still ( though I did deny Him ) Made a path ( so I could go find Him) Drove them out ( the lies that did bind me ) IíM A-LIVE! I PRAISE THE NAME JE-SUS ! Repeat CHORUS I owe my life to the all for-giv-ing ... I give my life to the all for-giv-ing ... Sub-mit my life to the all for-giv-ing ... God!.

You see, what I, could be Repeat CHORUS When, I strayed... I turned, away... And I refused to see... (whispered) you never gave up on me!

James 5:20 says to let him know, that he who converteth a sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death The message is clear ... You can never outsin God ... YOU CAN NEVER OUTSIN GOD! He will always want you back, THERE IS ALWAYS HOPE!, And on that day, when a sinner returns to seek the hand of God, Then heaven will rejoice .... for a lost child has come home !!!

Walls In The Kingdom Click to hear MIDI

And each fla-vor has itís own pride On an-swers that were found in-side Each one thinks they have the key How the wayís sup-posed to be THE Faith ... {break 1} The walls were built by hu-man things Pup-pets pulled by sin-i-ster strings Play-ing on the faults of man Those who do not know the plan Di-vide ... Christ is there and he stands real tall He can see in-side the walls Most of them have found some key He trea-sures all who try to see Out-side ... {break 2} Let the love of Je-sus bind us Pick a wall and start to climb it O-ver ti-me you will find that I-so-la-tion is a mind set (whispering) isolation is a mind set ...
