Been away from the forum for a few days while I tried to pull this song together.  I think I'll have to go back and re-record the lead vocals eventually.  The song was just too new and I need to practice it a bit more to get the right style in the voice, but I think you guys will understand.

Appreciate any feedback you might have.

Lyrics:



My Father’s House



© 2009 D. George


Sometimes I have this dream that I struggle to express

It starts by feeling all alone with a sense of hopelessness

I’m just child who’s wandered off, too young to understand

All alone and lost until I take my father’s hand.

That’s when I realize I can never come to harm

The world no longer frightens me ‘cause I am safe within his arms

I know that I can face my fears

As long as I can hold him near

I can weather any storm, ‘cause I am safe within my father’s house.

 

Sometimes it’s hard to know what’s written in God’s plans

The purpose and the meaning we’re not meant to understand

When our lives are filled with challenges and we pray for some relief

And though we try to find the answers we hold tight to our belief

For everything there’s a season, for every seed a time to grow

And in time we’ll come to understand all the things we’re meant to know

And through it all my heart’s at peace

And my mind is set at ease

I can weather any storm, because I’m safe within my father’s house.

 

There are times our lives are filled with hope and there are times when we must grow.

And there are times when we must look inside to find the lessons we must know.

And in those times of great demand, we’re safe within God’s loving hands

Assured that he will guide us to the place we’re meant to go.

 

And through it all I rest assured to know he’s never far away

And I can call on him for the strength I need when I bow my head to pray

And he will lift my burdened soul

And bring me treasures yet untold

And I can weather any storm, because I’m safe within my father’s house

Geez...first I forget to put lyrics in...then I forget to put the link to the song in.

Links in the original message now.  Either that was a newbie mistake or I'm just getting senile faster than what I thought...

  Hey DD, this is an absolutely beautiful song with a priceless heart felt testimony and message in it.  Very well written... this song needs to be all over Christian radio.

Thanks so much Dennis.  I agree that lots of people are in need of a song like this.  Lots of tough times out there.  I pray every day they can find the strength to make it through.
