Keep Your Dream Alive! ( Fenny West

keep your dream alive 1

Keep Your Dream Alive

Abundant life live

Press on, keep your focus

Every hurdle cross

Fix your eyes on Jesus

And your dream will never suffer loss.

 

 

Keep Your Dream Alive

It counts that you’re alive

So know that you can  cope

Without a doubt, there is hope

Against all hope you can have hope

Hope in the God of Hope.

 

 I Say, Keep Your Dream Alive

You will not only survive but thrive

Persevere to obtain the promise

Lord His word be the premise

And you will scale, assail every demise

From the debris you will rise.

 

Keep Your Dream Alive

You too, the other side will arrive

Regardless of those who oppose

Remember that He rose

To lift you from the valley throes

Delivered you from your foes.

 

Keep Your Dream Alive

His presence can’t be overemphasized

So, every mountain, contain and dwarf

 Every Goliath, gazump and dwarfed

Every Valley, raise and thwart

For you will triumph, no matter what!

Hallelujah!

3       For the vision is yet for an appointed time;

      But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie.

      Though it tarries, wait for it;

      Because it will surely come,

      It will not tarry. Hab2:3

31     But those who wait on the LORD

      Shall renew their strength;

      They shall mount up with wings like eagles,

      They shall run and not be weary,

      They shall walk and not faint.

Isa40:31

 

 

12        Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me.13 Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead,14 I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Phil3:12-14

9 who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was given to us in Christ Jesus before time began 2Tim1:9

9 having made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure which He purposed in Himself,10 that in the dispensation of the fullness of the times He might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven and which are on earth — in Him.11 In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will,Eph1:9-11

28        And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose. Ro8:28

 

4 And Joseph said to his brothers, “Please come near to me.” So they came near. Then he said: “I am Joseph your brother, whom you sold into Egypt.5 But now, do not therefore be grieved or angry with yourselves because you sold me here; for God sent me before you to preserve life. Gen45:4-5

19   Joseph said to them, “Do not be afraid, for am I in the place of God?20 But as for you, you meant evil against me; but God meant it for good, in order to bring it about as it is this day, to save many people alive.21 Now therefore, do not be afraid; I will provide for you and your little ones.” And he comforted them and spoke kindly to them.

Why it has been published

God has  given me the opportunity to make a contribution to the Body of Christ. It is a great privilege. When you think of the millions of songs composed over the centuries in Christendom, you would wonder if we need more songs. But God always gives us fresh manna regardless of what has been before. If we are open to Him, He will give us New Mercies, New Songs to sing to the King. A few of theses compositions over the years are set forth here. Some of them have been recorded and on CDs, some others have been recorded at home.

This book is a rich resource-base for songwriters, instrumentalist looking for fresh material, worship leaders, preachers and teachers and Christians in general and for devotional purposes.

Some of the songs have been tested in churches and small group settings with huge success. Some of the songs have also been recorded and distributed.

My intended reader is the Christian who wants to grow in Christ regardless of their past achievements or failures, pastors and teachers who have a spirit of excellence and scholarship and want a handy poetic and biblical resource on varied song-themes- any one who wants a fitting song for a special occasion; also Christian singers and rappers who want a good word-based lyric for recording or for use on outreach.

Over the years since being a Christian, I have undertaken various formal and in-house Bible courses, one of which led to the award of a Diploma in Christian Ministry. I have also personally developed my prose, song-writing and poetry skills and use the Bible as my key resource in my writings. The works of C.H. Spurgeon, Matthews Henry and John Bunyan have had a profound influence on writing.

With regards to songwriting, Graham Kendrick, Ian Whyte and Don Francisco, have been very influential. Ian Whyte introduced me into setting the Psalms to music.

Sing a New Song (sermon) Fenny West

 

“At the age of 98 Pastor Willis was admitted to a care facility in a hospital

in a wheelchair.

Bed-ridden a few years later, He spoke with enthusiasm of how he was in

the best possible position to look up to God.

When he died at 100, he left a legacy of one who sang a new song at every

turn in his life.” (Our daily Bread)

 

Ps 98 exhorts us to sing a new song.

We ought to praise him even in times of difficulties

Though this is about God’s deliverance from slavery it is also prophetic

to us today, in that we can trust Him regarding today’s difficulties and

tomorrow uncertainties.

The Psalmist wrote,

‘ . . . Let the sea roar

let us joy in his salvation . . . ’

 

I don’t know about tomorrow and what coming days will bring, but I know

that my Lord is with me. “A heart in tune with God sings songs of praise.

“Our Daily Bread

And so reader, those who know their God, can look forward to the coming

days, months and years, not with trepidation or foreboding but with great

anticipation and confidence because we know whom we serve and we know

whom we believe, because the word of God tells us: ‘The steadfast love of

the Lord never ceases, His mercies never come to end. They are new every

morning and great is His faithfulness.’ (Lam3:23)

 

‘Be not anxious for nothing but in EVERYTHING by prayer and petition

with thanksgiving, let your request be made known unto God. And the

peace of God which transcends all understanding, will garrison your heart

and your mind in Christ Jesus.’ (Phil.4:6-7)

 

Learning from David

 

Let us take a leaf or a lesson from David of old, who remembered his

mercies in times past and focused on God in difficult times.

When faced with man-mountain Goliath he began to review the past; how

God had helped him to overcome the bear that came to have his sheep for

lunch and also how He helped him to overcome the lion that came to have

his sheep for supper. As we review the past, we will be encouraged to trust

God for the present difficulties we face and the uncertainties of tomorrow,

and we will be able to give glory to God, singing a new song in our present

circumstance. When we review the past it will give us strength for today

and hope for tomorrow to match on and conquer whatever Goliath that

stands in the way. Because we know our God reigns and His thoughts

towards us are not thought of evil but of good, the best, to give us a future

filed with hope.

 

Again we see in 2Samuel how David encouraged himself when the

Amalekites’ raiding party came, swooped down unannounced and carried

away all his wives, livestock, the wives and children and property of his

companions in Ziglag. David stood dry, dejected and devastated and to

add salt to injury his men turned against him and wanted to stone him.

They saw him as the source of their woes. What did David do? He did not

call a pity party. If he did he would be the only one in that party. David was

wise. Rather than wallow in the mire of disappointment, he ‘encouraged

himself in the Lord. I have often thought about how he did it and what he

may have done. Possibly he reviewed Psalm 23: ‘the Lord is my Shepherd,

I shall not want; for He leads me beside green pastures . . . Yea though I

walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil for you

are with me, your rod and your staff they comfort me.

 

Ps 27—the Lord is my light and my salvation whom shall I fear. The Lord

is the stronghold of my life . . . Though an army encamp around me, they

will stumble and fall . . . my heart will not fear . . . You will lift my head

above my enemies, make me stand upon a rock.

Ps3 You are a shield around me Lord, my glory, the One Who lifts up my

head. I will not fear ten thousands of men that stand against me on every

side. I lie down and I sleep. I wake again sustained by the Lord.

Ps2 ‘Why do the nations rage and the people imagine vain things?. The

Lord who sits in  heaven laughs . . . . ask of me and I will give you the nations

for your inheritance and the ends of the earth for your possession.’

And after going through a few of his psalms which, reminded him of the

faithfulness of God in times past, David was renewed, energized, revitalized,

invigorated, enthused to go on, press on for the mark of the price of the

high calling in his God.

 

Happy are those who can live in your presence wherever they go, always

singing praises. Happy are those who are strong in you, who set their minds

on You regardless of what they face. When they walk through the valley of

weeping it will become a place of refreshing springs where pools of blessing

collect after the rain. They will continue to grow stronger—going from

glory to glory and from strength to strength. Barriers will birth blessings and

obstacles will birth miracles. You give them songs in the night. God will give you a song in your night as you look to Him.( Ps84:4-7)

Jehoshaphat also has a lesson to teach:

He faced a similar insurmountable problem when three powerful

nations, with an army like the sand in the seashore came againstJudah.

The king was naturally afraid but he plucked up courage and went before

his God and did the right thing,-declaring a time for fasting and praying.

He even led the prayer meeting. And after praying a covenant prayer,

reminding God of what He had done for them as a nation in times past,

His promises to them, and in particular, His covenant with Abraham he

concluded with, ‘we do not know what to do but our eyes are on You.’

 

God responded in a prophecy through Gahaziel:

‘Listen to me, O Judah, and you King Jehoshaphat, the battle is not yours

but the Lord’s. Tomorrow you go up against them.’

 

And as they obeyed, God gave them a strategy to sing a covenant song:

‘Praise ye the Lord, His mercy endures forever . . . ’ As they began to

sing this song, God laid an ambush against their enemies who began to

destroy themselves. They completely annihilated themselves and littered

the whole battlefield with bodies and booties.

When it was all said and done it transpired that where the enemy had

summoned Judah and King Jehoshaphat for battle became the bread basket

for the people of God and it took three whole days for them to gather the

goodies left behind.

 

 

This is what awaits you as you sing a new song in your circumstance. God

will grant you new mercies, new grace, new vista of hope, new impetus,

and new zeal, to go from glory to glory, faith to faith. He will give you

surprises that will blow your mind, far beyond your wildest dreams. What

your enemies thought will ruin you will turn out to be a blessing. Your

setbacks will become a setup for a lift up and a comeback.

Paul preached a powerful sermon from his prison cell inPhilippi

Paul and Silas were obedient servants of God, preaching the Gospel in

Philippi. They rattled the cage of some soothsayers and magicians and

adversaries of the Gospel who conspired and instigated their arrest, beating

and battering these men of God., It was as if God had abandoned His own.

They were thrown into prison with their hands and feet in stock—straight

jackets. They could hardly move. What did they do? Moan, complain,

throw temper tantrums, and point the finger at God? No! At mid-night

they sang a new song, praying and singing loudly so that other prisoners

heard them.

I could imagine Paul telling Silas, ‘Brother, let’s pray.’ And as they finished

praying, he said, ‘Now let’s sing praises to God.’ Silas may have been

surprised, and may have responded, ‘Brother Paul we are here for preaching,

now you want us to sing. Do you think it is a wise move? Something far

worse may happen to us.’

 

Paul and Silas preached in songs.

 

Paul continued, ‘Let us sing brother, Silas.

 

Silas: What shall we sing?

 

Paul: He set me free.

 

Silas: What? But we are still in jail! Can we sing that when we are set free?

 

Paul: No, this is the time. Faith is the substance of things hoped for the

evidence of things not seen; we walk by faith and not by sight.

 

 Silas: Well, you raise the song and I will follow

.

 

And they began to sing:

 

He set me free, one day, He set me free.

He broke the chains of prison for me.

I’m glory bound my Jesus to see.

Praise the Lord He set me free.

‘Set free to worship

set free to praise him

set free to rejoice before the throne

. . . I laugh I dance I shout I sing

alleluia to my Lord and King

 

 

“Set free to rejoice for evermore.’

‘What a mighty God we serve

Heaven and earth adore Him

Angel bow before Him

what a mighty God we serve.”

 

‘I am delivered O praise the Lord

I am delivered by His word

For the chains of sin are broken

I am delivered, O praise the Lord.

There’s been a great change in me,

O great change in me

I am so happy I am so free

He brought me out of bondage into liberty

O, O, O, there’s a great change in me.’

 

 

And as they continue to sing these songs of deliverance over and over again,

at midnight, their praise rose to God as a sweet-smelling aroma. God was

enjoying the sacrifice of praise and began to tap His feet, and when God

begins to tap His feet earthquake is the result. The jail was rocked from

its foundations and their chains fell off. Glory be to God!

 

They were set free. The jailor got the news of the jail being rocked and flung open and

his heart sank thinking all the prisoner had run away. He wanted to take his life and Paul and Silas shouted out:

 ‘Do not harm yourself. We are all

here.’ He was so convicted that he said: ‘What must I do to be saved?’ Paul

immediately told him ‘Believe on the Lord Jesus and you will be saved, you

and your household.’

 

We can all see the purposes of God in allowing his children to go through

what they went through. When you see your trials through the eyes of

God, you will see the purpose and you too will rejoice because His plans

for us are not plans of evil but of good to give us a future and a hope. It

does not imply that we will always have it rosy but we know that whatever

He allows is for our ultimate good.

Joseph: From Pit to Palace

Joseph, in spite of being righteous, generous, maintaining his integrity,

accountability and purity was thrown into prison. His dream got him

into trouble with his brothers yet he did not shy away from interpreting

dreams in the prison to help others. That was singing a new song in his

circumstances instead of moaning. God vindicated him in the end.

What more? He saw the purposes of God when he met his brothers and

they felt ashamed and remorseful of what they had done. Joseph did

not gloat over his advantage over them but comforted them: ‘It was not

you that sent me here but God sent me ahead to preserve many alive.’

(Gen45:5-8,—50:20)

 

Today, find God’s purpose in your circumstance and be encouraged to sing

new song. Sing a new song at every turn of your life like Pastor Willis. See

your changed situation as another opportunity of ‘being in the best position

to look up to God’, to give witness to the goodness of God. Someone said,

‘when your back is on the ground, praise God. You can only look up.’

 

Sing a new song to the King, know that He is in control at all times. Know

that He works everything together for the good of those who love Him and

who are called according to His purposes. Let us remind ourselves that if

God be for us no one can be against us. ‘Our light afflict worketh for an

exceeding weight of eternal glory.’ The outward man may perish but the

inward man is being renewed day by day. ‘Thanks be to God who always

causes us to triumph in Him.’ ‘Weeping may endure for the night but joy

is coming in the morning.’

 

 

 

Jesus is currently at the Father’s right hand interceding for us as our Attorney

and Advocate. He never loses a case and He will never lose our case. ‘It is

done, yes it is done. Through the precious blood of Jesus salvation is won.’

We have a New Covenant established on better promises and that is why

we can sing a new song at every turn in our lives. Our lives are hidden in

Christ in God. We are engraved on the palm of his Hands. Shall a mother

forget her sucking babe or the babe in her womb? Even if she does, God

has promised not to forget us.

 

Sing a New Song regardless of the weather. The God of the summer is also the God of the winter and He is good all the time.

 

 

We can sing a new song regardless of the weather, whether or not it is

cloudy, because we know Our God is in control; we know Who has gone

before us; we know who has given His word and will not go back on it. We

know that faithful is He who has called us who will also fulfil His promises.

We know that He is working EVERYTHING together for the good of

those who love Him and who are called according to His purpose. The

good work He has begun in our lives, He will bring to fruition. Therefore

we can look unto Jesus the Author and Finisher of our faith, Who, for the

joy set before Him, endured the cross. We too can endure our cross after

seeing the joy ahead of us.

 

You and I can look forward to finishing well our race of grace, singing a

new song on the mountain. Sing a New Song in the valley or alley, singing

a New Song even if it is cloudy. Friend, sing a new song in the desert or

green pasture. Sing a new Song in the summer or winter of life. Why? The

God of the mountain is also the God of the valley. He made the peak and

the trough.

 

 

He Made the Peak and the Trough

He made the peak

And made the trough

That you may seek

Him who is enough.

 

So there will be winter

When it is biting cold

And there will be summer

When it is warm and you’re bold

 

We need the mountain

And we need the valley

To see His fountain

And enter Eternity

 

And so, there’s a time to weep

A time for glee

A time to sleep

And time to greet the dawn

 

A time to fall

A time to rise

A time to be emptied

and a time to be full

a time to be beaten

and a time to be elevated

a time to be abased

and a time to abound.

God knows best

When to bring what

But it’s all for the best.

 

 

Sing a new song because our God is faithful, powerful, awesome, exceedingly

abundantly able to turn any table, regardless of how impossible it may seem.

He has the final word concerning our lives. Therefore neither death nor life

nor angel nor principalities nor things present nor things to come nor height

nor depth nor any other created thing can separate us from the love of God

which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. As far as the East is from the West, so far

has He removed our transgression from us. And as high as the heavens are above

the earth, so great is His love towards us. (Ps103:11-12, Rom8:37-39)

 

Sing a new because He loves you with an everlasting love. Sing a new song

because of His great love; it is mammoth. Sing a new song because His angels

are on assignment for you. Sing a new song because there is nothing too hard

for Your God. The earth, in all its fullness, belongs to Him. Silver and gold

belong to Him. The cattle on thousand hills belong to Him. Alleluia!

 

 

I don’t know about what tomorrow holds, but I know Who holds tomorrow.

He is the Sovereign Lord, who reigns and rules from sea to sea. Therefore

His praise my heart will sing. ‘A heart in tune with God sings melodies all

its day.’

 

My God stands by His Word. Heaven and earth will pass away but

His word will not pass away. The word that has proceeded out of His

mouth will not return to Him empty but will accomplish that which He

pleases prosper in the thing whereunto it is sent. By two unchangeable

things—His word and his oath, it is impossible for God to lie. He

said, ‘I will not alter my covenant. (Matt.24:35, Isa55:11, Ps89:34,

He6:18)

 

 

Sing unto the Lord a new song . . . for He has done marvelous things. His

right hand and His holy Arm has gotten Him the victory. The Lord has

made know His salvation to His people. All the ends of the earth shall see

the salvation of our God.

 

 

Surely, God Will Find YOU!

 

Surely, God will find YOU!

In the back of the desert.

He is faithful and true;

His own He will not desert.

 

Just like He found Moses,

Who had lost his vision,

Content to join the Jones;

God will bring resurrection.

 

When you’re weak, you’ll be strong,

Going in the strength of the Most High.

God will revive, give you a tonic and song.

And you will tread on places that are high.

 

The dumb shall be able to speak.

The lame shall leap like a deer.

The blood of the Lamb will speak

For the redeemed, His, dear.

Remember His mercies sing unto the Lord a new song. When the brought

back the captives of Zion, we were like those who dreamed. Our mouths

were filled with laughter and our tongues with joy. For it was said among

the nations: ‘The Lord has done great things for them.’ This will be your

testimony.(Ps126)

Review the Past and be strengthened

Sing a new song, review the past like David did when he face Goliath; tell of His goodness, His wonders, His greatness, His faithfulness and His loving kindness. 

 God did wonders for my life  in Ireland: sustaining me for 8 years when I was not allowed to work (rained manna); birthing songs upon songs  of deliverance in the valley of affliction; opening doors of ministry to encourage the saints despite what I was going through. With these songs I was able to encourage myself like David. He opened the rock and brought forth water.

Jesus Christ, the same, yesterday today and forever. He said I am the

Lord, I change not. He is a good God and He is good all the time—Jehovah

Shammah—the ever-present Lord; He is Jehovah Nissi—your victorious

banner; He is Elshaddai, the double breasted One, the God who is more

than enough, the Almighty. He is Jehovah Jireh—Supplier of all your needs

according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. He is Your peace—Jehovah

shalom. So regardless of the storms around you today, you can hold your

peace because He fights for you. You can hear Him say, ‘Peace, be still and

know that I am God. Though the mountain be carried into the midst of

the sea, stand to see your salvation. Though the sea roar and convulse, keep

calm. I am at the helm of your affairs.’

 

He is the Good Shepherd who lays down His life for His sheep. Count your blessings, name them one by one and it would surprise you what the Lord has done fo; encourage you to keep pressing on for the mark of the prize of the high calling in Christ Jesus.

 Know that the One in whom you believe is all-powerful, all-wise and nothing can thwart his plans and

purposes. His counsel shall stands. He decrees and it stands because He is able to do exceeding abundantly able to turn any table. He was before Abraham, He is and is to come—the Ancient of Days.

 He told Abraham, ‘Get out of your country, your family . . . your comfort

zone . . . to a place that I will show you.’ And when he did, God showed

him the place. Yes, he leftHaranand he came intoCanaan. Abraham left

Haran and came into Canaan.

 Abraham left Haran and came into Canaan. That shall be your portion.

Yes, regardless of the famine Abraham leftHarancame intoCanaan. Why?

Because God had given Him His word and He held unto that word until it came to pass

Be a Holy fool for God

Be a holy fool for God,

By responding to His call,

Come on, take Him at His Word,

Obey and you will not fall.

 

Leave! Get out of your country.

Detach yourself to attach,

Gracefully, not wearily;

From self-will, now be detached.

 

From Haran, go to Canaan

Land flowing with milk and honey

Commit yourself to God’s plan

Go and flow with Him, easy.

 

Now, for His will be hungry;

Let nothing else take it’s place.

Yield! His Spirit will carry

You from the maze to the place.

 

Delay can be dangerous

So get to work, fast today!

Be focused and be zealous;

Know that God will make a way.

 

You’ll be blessed to be a blessing.

A great nation you’ll become.

From Abram learn a lesson:

Obey. Let God’s kingdom come!

 

And so the challenge is for you and I to obey Him despite circumstances to the contrary.

It is written, ‘Your word is a light to my path and a lamp to my

feet.’ This means God will not show you the whole journey at once. With a

lamp you can only see the next step and at the end of that step you are able to

see the next step and so on. So it is with our race of grace and walk with God.

It is one day at a time and so long as we are holding on to Him and trusting

Him, He will take us to the other side—His desired haven.

Sing, my friend. Sing in the sun and sing in the rain like a robin. You can

sing the gospel. Sing a new song to the Most High. Sing in the day and

sing in the night.

Sing:

Heaven hear my voice as I sing

O earth, listen as I praise my King

I waited and waited for so long,

Now my God has given me a song.

 

They said to me, ‘for you, there is no hope

Commit suicide, I have a rope’

But today, I see a great hope

Coming down from the great God of Hope.

Sing a new song and make it long and strong. Sing this song before the day of victory arrives.

God gave me this song before He made a way for me to go back to England

in fulfilment of His word to me ‘I will bring you back . . . . ’

This was after almost 8 years of being exiled inIrelandand moving from house to house, not allowed to work. But God provided and protected and gave songs in my night, one of which is “Sing a New Song”

 

Sing a new song because you know, that you know, that you know, that as long as the

Lord lives, as long as night follows day, the word of the Lord shall not fall

to the ground.

 

 

Jesus had told the disciples ‘let us go to the other side and guess what? As

they got into the boat, a storm arose. That was to test their faith and

then at midnight when it was darkest, Jesus showed up. Alleluia! In your

darkest moment Jesus will show up. ‘The nearer the dawn, the darker the

night.’ Stand still to see the salvation of the Lord!

 

On another occasion, He was in the boat with them, sleeping and the

storm arose and they cried, ‘Master don’t you care that we perish? not

even thinking that since He was in the boat with them, if they perished

He would too. But we know that Jesus could not perish. He came to

do the will of God the Father and no wind could thwart the plans and

purposes of God. And so Jesus rose up and rebuked the wind and there

was a great calm.

 

The word of God says,’ Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today and forever,’

when the storm comes and you know that He is in the boat, you don’t need

to worry, sleep with Him, because you know that you will arrive at your

destination. If Jesus says, ‘Let us go to the other side,’ you will reach the

others side regardless of the ploys of the enemy-satanic machinations. You

will arrive on the other side because Jesus is faithful. Faithful is He who has

called you, Who will also do it.

 

The Holy Spirit is there to guide you, comfort and strengthen you. He

is the Standby come to stand by you. He is there to comfort you in your

distress. Call on Him. Ask Him to give you divine perspective in your

trials so that you can rejoice before you see. The fig tree may not now

blossom. There may be no fruit on the vine; there may be no cattle in the

stall nevertheless you can rejoice in the God of your salvation. He sees and

He cares and He knows and He is working behind the scenes. Call on the

Spirit of Grace to give you a new dose of His Grace that is sufficient for

you. He will quicken His word (the promises, His Rhema word to you, His

mercies) what He had done in times past. It is said ‘worry is the interest you

pay on trouble before you get it.’ Why pay interest? Man’s days are full of

trouble. There will always be adversities. It is how you face the adversities

that determine the outcome.

 

 

Sing a new song at every turn and you can face today’s difficulties and

tomorrows uncertainties with confidence in a faithful God Who begins

and finishes what He begins. Sing a new song to the King and make

it long, as long as the King of king is on the throne. You can face any

Goliath that confronts you and through Christ can fell him and turn on

the light in your life, in your family, in your nation to the glory of God.

Alleluia!

I will conclude with this poem

song to Him.

who rides the winds

and can heal the sick

He walks on the waters

and even raises the dead

and brings water out of the rock

parts the sea, rains manna from heaven

and makes the impossible possible

He makes the impossible possible.

Rains manna from heaven, parts the sea;

Brings water out of the rock,

And even raises the dead.

He walks on water,

Can heal the sick;

He rides the winds.

Sing to Him

A new

Song.

And health to ones whole body.

 

 

Above all else, guard, guard well your heart.

FAITH/COMFORT

The Just shall live by faith

The just shall live by faith

The just shall live by faith

 

For the things that are seen

Are passing away

The just shall live by faith.

 

 

We walk by faith, not sight

We walk by faith, not sight

For the things that are seen

Are fleeting, transient

The just shall live by faith.

The unseen shaped the seen

The unseen shaped the seen

For the things that are see

Are temporary

The just shall live by faith.

I Believe to See

(1Cor.1:26-2:5)

The world sees to believe,

But I believe to see.

Ch:

For my faith does not rest in the wisdom of men,

But in the power of God

For I know whom I believe,

So I receive to see.

My title deed is God’s word

And He stands by His word.

My God is all-powerful,

And He’s ever faithful.

The unseen shaped the seen,

And more real than the seen.

The seen is transient,

But the unseen permanent.

Oaks of Righteousness Will Stand

The oaks of righteousness,

Shall stand in the fierce wind.

Through His great faithfulness,

Abounding grace they will find.

They will grow tall and strong,

Like cedars of Lebanon.

At night they’ll have a song,

To cheer those that mourn.

His Word their nourishment;

His Spirit their comfort;

His love so permanent;

Fiery darts come to naught.

They are the trees of the Lord;

His treasured possession.

They are watered by the Lord.

In famine or recession.

They will always flourish

Bearing fruit abundant.

They will never perish.

But have life abundant.

Jesus, is my Friend

Jesus is my Friend

My Friend to the end.

Jesus is my Friend,

And I love Him.

I will obey what He says;

To watch and pray come what may;

I will obey what He says,

’Cos I love Him.

And if God is for you, who can be against you. You are the righteousness of

Don’t you that you are more than a conqueror through Christ.(Ro.8:37)

 

Be not anxious about anything. But in everything by prayer and petition with

With them is the arm of the flesh,

But with us the Lord of Hosts.

I was Born Clappy Nic’ O’Demus

I was born clappy

Into a family,

In the West African region.

We loved religion,

We were in religion,

But religion was not in us.

We sang those songs

Though we were so wrong,

We thought we had it made.

With one eye we prayed,

With the other we strayed,

Fooling that God did not see.

I remember that day that that Nic’ O demus

 

Went knocking on that door at night.

He asked the Way, Master Jesus: “How come You’re different from all”

That day he heard the truth

From Jesus—the Truth,

And his problem was cured from the root.

He knew “Churchianity” was not Christianity,

Religion was not life in Christ.

I was in a mess;

Enmeshed in a mess,

Yet I thought I enjoyed my life.

Yet no life in my life’

Till Christ gave me His life;

 

So I sing this song of life.

I was going blind;

No good in my mind;

Yet I thought I had good sight

But for the love Jesus-the Light,

I would have been dead in the night.

Now I have life,

From Christ, New Life.

I have passed from death to life

I have a home above;

Purchased by love,

I’m a citizen of heaven above.

 

Saints of God, ..Celebrate

Saints of God, let us celebrate;

Celebrate this new life in Christ;

Sing to the Lord and jubilate;

Jubilate in the lord Jesus Christ.

 

Saints of God, let us clap and sing.

Clap and sing to God our Father;

Give glory to the Lord of lords our King;

The Most High God our Maker.

 

Saints of God, let us dance and rejoice;

Rejoice because the Lord, He is good;

So good to us that He made us His choice,

His people, His royal priest hood.

 

Saints of God, let His praises ring;

From sunrise until sunset;

Let all that is within us sing;

Sing every one who has breath.

 

In a Desert Land ..Found Me.

(Deut.32:10-13)

In a desert land You found me

In a barren and howling waste You found me

You shielded me and cared for me.

As the apple of Your eyes cared for me.

Like an eagle that stirs up its nest,

Hovers over its young in a test,

Spreads its wings to catch them,

And on its pinions carried them.

 

So Lord You stirred up my nest’

And hovered over me in my test,

Spread Your Wings to catch me,

And on Your Pinions carried me.

You made me ride me ride on the heights;

On the heights of the land in Your might;

From the fruit of the field, Lord You fed me’

With cords, oil, milk and honey.

12And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven

suffers violence, and the violent take it by force. Matt.11:12

10Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.

11Put on the whole armour of God, that you may be able to stand against

the wiles of the devil. 12For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but

against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of

against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13Therefore

take up the whole armour of God, that you may be able to withstand in

the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

14Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on

the breastplate of righteousness, 15and having shod your feet with the

preparation of the gospel of peace; 16above all, taking the shield of faith

with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.

17And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is

the word of God; 18praying always with all prayer and supplication in the

Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for

all the saints—(Ephe.6:10-18)

15Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle

of them, triumphing over them in it.Col.2:15

1 The LORD said to my Lord,

“Sit at My right hand,

Till I make Your enemies Your footstool.”Ps110:1

14Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ,

and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place.

STEWARDSHIP—COPYRIGHT

There is wisdom in protecting your work so as to maximise the resources

derived from it to further its multiplication and leaving a legacy for

generations. Besides your prosperity would enable you to reach out to others

by your ability to sponsor worthy good causes. None of this is possible if

you are careless about your talent and leave it to those who are just on the

look out for ‘free lunch.’ You woe it to the next generation to and to God

to be a good steward of the gift s and talent bestowed on you.

Provided you are the owner of a work you have copy right for 50 years from

the date of the initial copyright., unless the copyright is lodged in a trust

in which case it can be enforced so long as the trust exists for the purposes

it was set up.

Copyright can be initiated by registering your work with the agency

responsible for copyright in which you affirm that you are the original

owner of the work. Any infringement will entitle you to damages if you

successfully sue. You must append to such work your name the copyright

sign and the date the copyright originated. You can also avoid undue costs

and legal technicalities by putting the work in an envelope and post it

to your self by recoded delivery to establish the date the copyright was

initiated. The envelope must only be opened in a court where there is a

dispute of ownership of work.

MARKETING AND PUBLISHING YOUR SONG

It is one thing to write a song, it is quite another to have it marketed. You

should think of your market before recording. In this age of Information

Highway you would need a web presence where you can distribute your

song to make ends meet. Consider having a website or joining with others

to give you a forum to reach your audience. Consider songs you can give

away freely and websites that you can link to and who can link to you.. It is

important to have a system whereby samples of your songs can be accessed

on your website and online purchases made possible. If you want your song

to go places you must look for outlets for it. If you are not a good singer,

then look for a good singer who is looking for your kind of material. Also

consider looking for producers who can put a group together. It is easier to

work in a group than to work in isolation. However that is easier said than

done. You need to pray for divine connection otherwise it can be a very

lonely road as I discovered. Some people are called to be Solo artistes and

they do better single solos. That said, there are always people behind the

scene who would assist in other capacities.

If you are able to produce demos at home, that can also help you in your

marketing. It is also possible to come into an agreement with someone who

can write the music such that anyone can play it in your absence.

With the wide use of the information Super-Highway, you can now self

publish your work on your website or publish on a website where you can

seek critique/review from other members. One example is faithwriters.com

to which I belong,
