Listening to Good Songs

We become what we listen to. This is why lyrics are important. What we feed our brain is what we end up like. Feed the brain good words, we are good. Truth in, truth out. Lies and corruption in, lies and corruption out. Bad words turns people bad. Good songs produce good people and bad songs produce bad people. There are exceptions but they are few. So my rule with myself and my kids is Christian songs only and Bible reading every day. Seems harsh? Think about it. If I feed my impressionable children’s brain sex and sleeping around and throwing people away and selfish things like “getting mine” and gotta have this or that, will that not impress the wrong ideals on their minds and encourage them to develop a strong lack of moral character? I think so. If I feed them truth, won’t they be more likely to embed that into a strong moral character and know the truth and discern lies when they see them? I think so too. So, have a wonderful day listening to some good songs with truth lyrics!❤

Hope

“Hope.

We don’t hear much about it in this world.

But it’s there. Praise God it’s there.

Love.

We can’t live without it.

But it’s there, praise God it’s there.

In this dark world, there is a Light

Shining out of darkness, so bright.

All we must do to gain that light

Is call out to Jesus tonight.

Hope.

We don’t hear much about it in this world

But it’s there, praise God it’s there.

Love.

We can’t live without it.

But it’s there, praise God it’s there.”❤

Sing Him a Love Song

“Sing Him a love song that He wrote for us to sing.

Sing Him His love song again.

Tell of the sweet story of the Christ who came to save us.

Sing Him the love song again.

Once there was a blind man and another deaf and dumb.

Jesus came to them and said “Your faith has made you whole.”

Then the men started singing a love song back to Him.

Sing Him a love song that He wrote for us to sing.

Sing Him His love song again.

Tell of the sweet story of the Christ who came to save us.

Sing Him a love song again.

Then there were ten lepers, he had compassion on them.

Nine of them just walked away, only one came back to him.

He rejoiced and to this day he sings love songs now in heaven.

Sing Him a love song that He wrote for us to sing.

You have to sing Him His love song again.

Tell of the sweet story of the Christ who came to save us.

Sing Him the love song again.”

Oh the Love of God

“There’s a wideness if God’s mercy

I cannot find in my own.

And it keeps the fire burning

To melt this heart of stone.

Keeps me aching with the yearning,

Keeps me glad to have been caught

In the reckless, raging fury

That they call the love of God.

Oh, the love of God.

Oh, the love of God,

The love of God!

Now, I’ve seen no band of angels

But I’ve heard the soldiers’ song.

Love hangs over them like a banner,

Love within them leads them on

To the battle in the journey

And they’re never going to stop

Ever widening their mercy

And the fury of His love.

Oh, the love of God.

Oh, the love of God, the love of God!

Joy and sorrow are this ocean

And in their every ebb and flow

Now, the Lord, a door has opened

That all hell can never close.

Hero tested and made worthy,

Tossed about but lifted up

In the reckless, raging mercy

And the fury of His love.

Oh, the love of God.

Oh, the love of God, the love of God.”

The Songs We Sing

We can stifle our songs or sing them. The songs we stifle die. The songs we sing grow sweeter with age and experience. Sing the songs God placed within you. That song is worth singing and I would love to hear your song. As would God, the originator of it. The song you sing is beautiful.❤

I Gaze Out the Window

I gaze out the window, remembering days by

The fields beckoned me run through faster, fly higher,

Thr Michigan sun kissed my yellow hair, giving it warmth.

The dog beside me asking to run ahead, in flight for a rabbit,

The rabbit escapes and I sigh relieved, preferring to see her again.

The field ends and the railroad tracks beg us to follow

And staying on the wood running begins my quest for faithful tempo.

The steadiness of my breath creates my beat,

The pant of my dog and birds singing my accompanyists,

The rush and tricking of the brook is my background choir

And God would give me the melody and words.

And I will never recapture that musical creative moment that way.

But now my music comes from different place

Different background choir, different beat source,

But the Giver of the melody and words is the same

And I still sing. I will always sing. My choice, my passion.❤

Don’t Worry, Be Happy

Don’t Worry, Be Happy Lyrics by Bobby Ferrin

“Here’s a little song I wrote 

You might want to sing it note for note 
Don’t worry be happy 
In every life we have some trouble
When you worry you make it double 
Don’t worry, be happy
(Don’t worry, be happy now)

Don’t worry
Be happy
Don’t worry, be happy
Don’t worry
Be happy
Don’t worry, be happy

Ain’t got no place to lay your head 
Somebody came and took your bed
Don’t worry, be happy 
The land lord say your rent is late 
He may have to litigate 
Don’t worry, be happy 
(Look at me I am happy)

Don’t worry, be happy 
Here I give you my phone number 
When you worry call me
I make you happy 

Don’t worry, be happy 

Ain’t got no cash, ain’t got no style 
Ain’t got no girl to make you smile 
But don’t worry be happy
Cause when you worry 
Your face will frown 
And that will bring everybody down 
So don’t worry, be happy 
(don’t worry, be happy now)

Don’t worry
Be happy
Don’t worry, be happy
Don’t worry
Be happy
Don’t worry, be happy

[*4th verse not in radio edit]
Now there is this song I wrote 
I hope you learn it note for note 
Like good little children 
Don’t worry, be happy 
Listen to what I say 
In your life expect some trouble 
When you worry 
You make it double 
But don’t worry
Be happy, be happy now

Don’t worry
Be happy
Don’t worry, be happy
Don’t worry
Be happy
Don’t worry, be happy

[Radio edit continues here]
Don’t worry 
Don’t worry don’t do it, be happy 
Put a smile on your face 
Don’t bring everybody down like this 

Don’t worry
It will soon pass whatever it is 
Don’t worry, be happy.”❤
