This is a new melody I have written for the Serenity Prayer. I apologize for my performance skills, but I would love it if other people would sing/record the song!

Good song. I truly like it. Don't sweat your "professional skills." I don't apologize for mine because I don't have any...lol...But seriously, you sing from the heart and the listener can see it and most importantly "hear it." Keep doing what your doing.

What a lovely song. The lyrics are powerful as is the melody line. I hope someone can come through for you on your request. Unfortunately I don't play that well!
Hope to hear more from you!

Did you record it all in one take? I am trying to now do instrument first then overlay with vocals as I find doing it all at once and in one hit far too challenging for my skills. (IE I get to cheat a bit with cut and pasting tracks - which is a method that works for me!)

Thanks for your song Clark - it has soul!

Megalark,
Thanks! The lyrics, of course, are not mine. This is a well-known prayer attributed to Reinhold Niebuhr. I do not have a multi-track recording system, but I did record the music first (on my keyboard) then played that back while I sang.
I like your name by the way! I have been know to go by the name "Oaklark"
