Another Original Song – He Hears You Cry

It’s time to post another one of my songs. You would think this would get easier as I continue to share, but it still makes me shake in my boots.

This song is called He Hears You Cry. It was written during the colicy stage when I couldn’t stop my baby’s tears. In the end I just gave up and left it to God. My daughter is now a very happy little girl and she loves when I sing this song to her. I hope that it can help others. Again, sorry for the tinny recording. We do what we can with what we have. :)

Conquer the World – another original song

I just posted another one of my original songs on YouTube. I’m still shaking in my boots, but it’s getting easier to share. Thanks to everyone who has been encouraging me in this. It helps so much.

Lyrics:

Trying to run before you can crawl, fearless courageous you’ll conquer it all

Daughter of God queen among queens, to us you’re the world you are everything

And don’t give up. Don’t forget who you are. Don’t give in. Remember the one who died for your sins, and this life will be tough, but it will be wonderful and with faith in God you can conquer the world. Da da da da da da da da da da etc.

So sweet and pure – sent from above – the perfect example of heavenly love.

With light in your eyes and joy in your smile we know you will make it through any trial.

And don’t give up. Don’t forget who you are. Don’t give in. Remember the one who died for your sins, and this life will be tough, but it will be wonderful and with faith in God you can conquer the world. Da da da da da da da da da da etc.

And there will come a day when you find you are pressed, but we’ll be beside you through any test.

And you won’t be alone even when we are gone. You’ll always have Him and His Holy Son so please hold on.

And don’t give up. Don’t forget who you are. Don’t give in. Remember the one who died for your sins, and this life will be tough, but it will be wonderful and with faith in God you can conquer the world. Da da da da da da da da da da etc.

Don’t give up. Don’t forget who you are.

Want to Hear My Original Music?

Want to hear my original music? For a long time it didn’t matter whether you did or not because I wasn’t sharing. I would write songs, be too afraid to even share them with my family and close friends, and then I would eventually forget them. I have forgotten countless songs. But then something changed. I can’t pin point it, but I started to share my music with my husband – only my husband. He encouraged me and helped me along, not by always telling me that a song was good, but by always telling me that I was good for trying. About a year after I first began sharing my music with my husband I began to feel this urging to share it with more people.

I started with my Dad. I was scared to death, but he encouraged me and told me I should keep going with it. Then I shared it with my Mom. Eventually I got up enough guts to sing one of my original songs at an extended family party. I nearly died. I was so scared I broke down and started crying in the middle of the song. Those who know me would probably be shocked to hear that I have stage fright. I’ve been in numerous plays and countless concerts over the years, but this is different. This is me baring my soul to the world. When criticism comes, as it always does, what will I do? It’s opening myself up to a whole new level of failure.

So why am I doing it? I don’t exactly know. Mostly because there’s this feeling that not only should I, but I am supposed to. This feeling that my music could uplift someone and make a small difference in a life. So, despite the fear and trepidation I’m sharing my music.

This first song will be one of the few with accompaniment. Despite my best attempts I was not blessed with instrumental gifts. This song was accompanied by a family friend with extraordinary abilities. I couldn’t impose on her to accompany more of my songs. The audio was done with a cell phone and is far from perfect, in fact my voice sounds better    A cappella, but I think the piano accompaniment adds to the song. Perhaps I’ll upload an A cappella version later.
