about

On this CD I played a 12 string, 6 string, classical guitars and an electronic keyboard. I mixed all these songs in my dorm room while at collage. I did the recordings on a 4 track machine that the public library checked out for free.

Track Name: Uttermost Parts
It’s only one lifetime that you have my friend.
So give it all to Him and go
to the uttermost parts of the world
where they have never heard His name before.
Track Name: It’s His Love
Feel the rainstorm breeze in your hair
Live your life in His care
I wrote this song with you on my mind
And it’s a miracle now I can make anything rhyme
My life’s a story of His Grace
It’s something I have to face
It’s a miracle and there’s nothing that I have done
to be in this place

Oh It’s His love. That’s all I can say, it’s His love

All the good things that I have done…
All the awards that I have won
All of the places that I have been
And even the victories over sin
Not a one can I claim
My worth rests in His Name
It’s a miracle and there’s nothing that I can do
to earn His love

Oh It’s His love. That’s all I can say, it’s just His love

There's so much more to this thing called life
Our hearts and souls filled with joy, and not strife.
The rivers, the children, the trees and the air.
The peace, the laughter, the rest of living in His care
Oh how much that I have missed
The striving and religiousness
What will it take for us all to see
How much we mean to Him

Oh It’s His love. That’s all I can say, it’s His love
Track Name: The Wind
The Wind, my familiar Friend.
Whispers my name, the one known only to Him.
In the leaves of the trees,
in the waves of the seas,
He whispers my name
through the grass on the plain.

The Wind, my familiar Friend.
Whispers my name, the one known only to Him.
Blows the rain in the air,
gentle breeze in my hair.
He whispers my name
with great loving care.

The Wind, my familiar Friend.
Whispers my name, the one known only to Him.
Moves the clouds in the sky.
Dries the tear in my eye.
He whispers my name
though the years have gone by.
Track Name: You Show Us Your Love
You show us Your love,
through the cloud and the summers rain.

You show us Your love,
through all the tears and even the pain.

You show us Your love,
through the sunshine on our windowpane.

You show us Your love,
through the wind You whisper our name.


"My child, I long to hold you.
No one knows you like I know you.
I feel your heart, I taste your sorrow.
That's why I am here,,
to show you My love."

You show us Your love,
through the changing seasons of time.

You show us Your love,
through the allegory and the rhyme.

You show us Your love,
through the subtle images in our mind.

You show us Your love,
through our friends as our hearts so entwine.
Track Name: Journey Back
Memories burn the images on our minds.
But our hearts don't feel the feelings and the rhyme.

Journey back. Take your time.
Enjoy the past. It's a Harley ride all over again.

Emotions soft, locked up inside they long to escape.
You hold them tight. Suppressed by time what will it take.
His love

Journey back. Take your time.
Experience the past. It's a playground slide all over again.

Triggered in the mind, a song, a smell, a taste,
a glimpse of rhyme.

He knows your thoughts.
the Spirit reaching through the years of time.

Journey back. Make the time.
Humble hearts remember where we've been again and again.

Synaptic lies. Curious strings of neurons we're afraid
to untie. We must find the clocks inside wound
up so tight then unwind.

Journey back. Take His mind.
Face up to the past then leave it behind.
Never return again.....or again.

Journey back..
Track Name: Convincing Me
Some boyhood dreams,
of lands too far away.
Some boyhood schemes,
of games to dangerous to play.

And all the while,
watching from behind the
pin holed canopy.

Through the miracles and
the signs and the wonders
convincing me.
Convincing me of His love.

Such a dreamy life,
imagination mixed with hard realities.
The extreme, the complex kind.
The myriads of mazes in my mind.

And all the while,
holding me catching me
with His angles wings.

Through the miracles and
the signs and the wonders
convincing me.
Convincing me with His love.

His discipline so mild,
with a soft and fleshy hand.
What a wandering child.
So lost in His eyes I
must have been.

And all the while,
He must of agonized
and shed His tears over me.

Still showing the miracles and
the signs and the wonders
convincing me.
Convincing me of His love

My childhood days...
My memory is faint and
still it fades.

My childish escapades.
so vain and empty were my
ways.

And all the while,
His sovereign hand
protecting me, guiding me

Through the miracles and
the signs and the wonders
convincing me.
Convincing me of His love.
Track Name: When a Boy was Three
Sunshine lazy morning,
in a flowered open yard.
Bees were hovering gently
as we catch them in our jars.

Ever so gentle the peace.
Life is such a mystery, it seems.
So bright and shining our eyes can be
when a boy is three,, when a boy is three.

Tiny patting foot steps
down a weedy sun rayed path.
Batman and Robin my company
on my way to have

rhubarb and my thumb.
The old ladies work had to get done.
Hanging out her laundry on the line
when a boy was three,, when a boy was three.

Daddy was strong but silent.
Held me in his arms
for the picture memory.
Background of the farm.

Red bubble pipe in my teeth.
A real one he had and his was neat.
I remember, remember that he loved me well
when this boy was three,, when this boy was three.

When I was a young lad,
the wind whispered through the trees.
Moms cellar full of pares in jars.
My leg tied up on a sling.

The ocean, so gentle it seemed.
Underneath was an unforgiving sea.
Life's such a mystery it seems,
when a boy is three,, when a boy is three.
Track Name: Stranger
When we try to think of life,
what can we really say.
Life is just a passing wave
to wash the sand away.

All I want, is to leave here.
I hate this life, I'm a stranger here.

We've chased a million crystal bubbles
that swirl around the sea.
We've made them all our desires and dreams
of what we want to be.

Beneath the surface of the ocean,
the wonders we could see.
But even as beautiful as they are,
they’re nothing to me.

Hebrews 11:13
1 Peter 1:1 & 1:17 & 2:11
Track Name: Blue Boys
Blue eyes on blue boys.
Too innocent to steal toys.
Wondering where mom is,
dad too busy to play.

Blue eyes on blue boys.
Plots, schemes, and swift ploys.
We got what we wanted
to fill the rainy days.

Searching and hiding,
longing for love.
Wandering, fighting,
hearts like leather gloves.

Blood stains on white cloths.
Skinned knees and scraped nose.
Roughly we brushed with
death along the way.

"Sorry I was late mom."
Spaceships and Vietnam.
We watched them in black and white.
They mesmerized our haze.

Screaming and crying,
aching for love.
Running, dying,
hearts like leather gloves.

Mysteries and paradox.
Circumstance and Goldilocks.
Wondering if we'd ever
see the nuclear display.

Swiftly rhyme the paradigm.
How quickly passed the fleeting time.
Never, never thought I'd be where I am today.

Resting and knowing.
Clinging to His love.
Moving and going,
heart gentle as a dove.
Track Name: Horizon
Oh this wondrous life so much like the wind on the seas.
So swiftly the waves go by. Only One clearly sees
which wave that we’re on, which current we’ve come from, leading us pulling us on the mainstream to the horizon that we’ve set our eyes on.

The ocean so gentle it seems underneath an unforgiving sea. This ship we must travel on. Hold the wheel firmly in hand. The wave that we’re on, which current we’ve come from, leading us pulling us on the mainstream to the horizon that we’ve set our eyes on.

I see my life unfolding. There is nothing I can do.
My life is surrendered to You. Your love has seen me through the wave that I’m on, which current I’ve come from, leading me pulling us on the mainstream to the horizon that I’ve set our eyes on.

Horizon, your eyes on. Horizon, keep your eyes on,
the horizon
Track Name: Embrace
To feel Your warm cheek on my face
To know Your arms and Your embrace

To feel Your warmth so near to me
You whisper in my ear all You want me to be

Oh Father, You are my loving Dad
Father by Your Spirit You make my heart so glad.

You speak softly in my ear
Together we stand ah Your presence so dear.

Comfort me showing me Your will
Unfolding my life letting my heart spill

Oh Father You are my loving Dad
Father by Your Spirit You make my heart so glad.
Track Name: Whispers
I whisper in Your ear You whisper in mine
I whisper in Your ear You whisper in mine
Tell me tell me Father what’s on Your mind.

Make my heart so tender like Thine
Make me spirit so gentle like Thine
my heart so gentle like Thine

Whispers whispers in my ear
Track Name: Vision
Wondering who? Wondering who?
Open your eyes, look to the fields.

They are ripe unto harvest even now the reaper draws His yield.

My food is to do the will of Him how sent me and to finish His work.

The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few
Ask the Lord of the harvest to send you.

Never pray a prayer that you’re not willing to fulfill yourself.

And this Gospel of the Kingdom will be preached in the whole world As a testimony to all nations and then the end will come.

Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation.

Wondering who? Wondering who you are? Wondering how to play your part?

Who will go? Who will go to the uttermost parts of the world.
Track Name: Real Fine Dad
Father in heaven
You’re a real fine Dad
You fill my heart with such vision
You make my heart so glad

You brighten my days
with You’re loving ways
With You’re beautiful eyes
You make me realize

that You’re never hesitant in answering
the smallest prayer
never reluctant to embrace us the moment we
open our arms, we open our arms.
You open Your arms.
