Bring Back the Glory

All the laughter is gone
And the sound of the song that we sang
Slowly faded away
Simple joys that we knew
When we walked close with you, hand in hand
In the cool of the day
Are just memories
Or are they dreams
Yet we hold to the hope
That the music will come back again

Bring back the Glory
Won't you show us what life is for
Bring back the Glory
Make us open once more
Bring back the music the trust the wonder
That's just like a child who has never known pain
Bring back the Glory
The Glory again

Give me a cause that is grand
And a reason to stand
That calls for the best I can see
Something worthy to live for
A reason to give
Everything that I ever could be
O there must be more
Take me Lord
How I need you to give me
A glimpse of eternity

You are the Glory
You have shown us what life is for
You are the Glory
Make us like you once more
You are the music the trust the wonder
That's just like a child
Who has never known pain
You are the Glory
You are the Glory
You are the Glory
That Brings us together again

When Answers Aren’t Enough

You have faced the mountains of desperation
You have climbed, you have fought, you have won
But this valley that lies coldly before you
Casts a shadow you cannot overcome

And just when you thought you had it all together
You knew every verse to get you through
But this time the sorrow broke more than just your heart
And reciting all those verses just won't do

When answers aren't enough, there is Jesus
He is more than just an answer to your prayer
And your heart will find a safe and peaceful refuge
When answers aren't enough, He is there

Instead of asking why did it happen
Think of where it can lead you from here
And as your pain is slowly easing, you can find a greater reason
To live your life triumphant through the tears

repeat chorus

Unshakeable Kingdom
They came to follow him
Drawn by what He promised them;
If they would sell
All that they had;
He said that God would send
A kingdom that would never end,
Where all the poor would be so rich

And their discontent,
They heard what they thought
He meant,
They heard that the weak
Would be strong;
Bread would be multiplied,
And hunger be satisfied
And every servant a king
In this Kingdom of God,
A kingdom that would never end
A living unshakeable kingdom of God.

But he went his quiet way
Giving himself away
Building what eyes
Could never see;

While men looked for
Crowns and thrones
He walked with crowds alone
Planting a seed in you and me

Crying for those who cried,
Dying for those who died
Bursting forth glorified alive

And some of them looked for him
Sad that it had to end
But some dared to look Within and see
The kingdom of God
A kingdom that will never end
The living unshakeable kingdom of God

Still some of us look for him
And that it had to end
Do we dare to look within and see
The kingdom of God
A kingdom that will never end
The living unshakeable kingdom Of God.

Trust His Heart

All things work for our good
Though sometimes we don't
See how they could
Struggles that break our hearts in two
Sometimes blind us to the truth
Our Father knows what's best for us
His ways are not our own
So when your pathway grows dim
And you just don't see him,
Remember your never alone

God is too wise to be mistaken
God is too good to be unkind
So when you don't understand
When don't see his plan
When you can't trace his hand
Trust His Heart

He sees the master plan
He holds the future in his hand,
So don't live as those who have no hope,
ALL our hope is found in him.
We see the present clearly
He sees the first and last
And like a tapestry He's weaving you and me,
To someday be just like him

He alone is faithful and true
He alone knows what is best for you


When you can't trace his hand
When you don't see his plan
When you don't understand
Trust His Heart

People Need the Lord

Everyday they pass me by,
I can see it in their eyes.
Empty people filled with care,
Headed who knows where?

On they go through private pain,
Living fear to fear.
Laughter hides their silent cries,
Only Jesus hears.

People need the Lord, people need the Lord.
At the end of broken dreams, He's the open door.
People need the Lord, people need the Lord.
When will we realize, people need the Lord?

We are called to take His light
To a world where wrong seems right.
What could be too great a cost
For sharing Life with one who's lost?

Through His love our hearts can feel
All the grief they bear.
They must hear the Words of Life
Only we can share.

People need the Lord, people need the Lord
At the end of broken dreams, He's the open door.
People need the Lord, people need the Lord.
When will we realize that we must give our lives,
For peo-ple need the Lord.

People need the Lord.

Seekers of Your Heart

Until we give You first play
Until we let You begin
To fill us with your spirit
Renew us from within
Nothing matters
Nothing's gained
Without your Holy presence
Our lives are lived in vain

Lord we want to know You
Live our lives to show You
All the love we owe You
We're seekers of your heart

Because your heart was broken
Because You saw the need
Because You gave so freely
Because of Calvary
We can now be
Called your own
Complete creations
Filled with You alone

Repeat Chorus

In His Presence

In the quiet of this hour
As we kneel before you now
I believe your promise to be faithful
I don't always understand
What your perfect will demands,
But I learned to trust you more
In your presence, Lord.

In your presence there is comfort,
In your presence there is peace,
When we seek to know your heart,
We will find such blessed assurance
In your holy presence, Lord.

There can be such sweet reward
When we wait upon the Lord
As we take the time, he give us his perfect wisdom.
To be found in Him alone,
All our deepest secrets known, we're surrounded by his grace
When we seek his face.

In your presence there is comfort,
In your presence there is peace,
When we seek my fathers’ heart,
We will find such blessed assurance and ever open door
To know our savior more,
In the presence of my Lord.

He Who Begun a Good Work in You

He who began a good work in you
He who began a good work in you
Will be faithful to complete it
He'll be faithful to complete it
He who started the work
Will be faithful to complete it in you

If the struggle you're facing
Is slowly replacing
Your hope with despair
Or the process is long
And you're losing your song
In the night you can be sure
That the Lord has His hand on you
Safe and secure
He will never abandon you
You are His treasure
And He finds His pleasure in you

He Loved Me

He chose me --- be-fore the world was known.
He chose me --- to be His very own.
He made me, then let me choose my way.
I chose to move a-way.
He loved me --- when hope had tak-en wing.
He loved me --- when I lost ev-'ry-thing.
He bought me, redemp-tion's work was done though Jesus Christ, His Son. Who-- shall sep-a-rate me from the love of God?
Shall dreams of to-mor-row, pain, or sor-row,
Can the need of food or earth-ly pos-sess-ions, the threat of war or man's op-pres-sion?
In all these things vic-t'ry is our reward.
Vic-t'ry is our reward though Jesus Christ, our Lord. Of this I am sure, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor prin-ci-pal-i-ties, nor pow-ers, nor things pres-ent, nor things to come--- Not height, nor depth, nor any crea-ture
Shall sep-a-rate me from the love of God.#
Through Jesus Christ, our Lord.

There is A Saviour

There is a Saviour, What joys expressed, His eyes of mercy, His word is rest, For each tomorrow for yesterday, There is a Saviour who lights our way

Are there burdens in your heart, Is the past a memory that binds you, Is there something that you've carried far too long, Oh there's strength in your heart with His good news, There is a Saviour and He's forgiven you

(Repeat Chorus Twice)
There is a Saviour who lights our way

Great is Thy Faithfulness

Great is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father;
There is no shadow of turning with Thee;
Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not;
As Thou hast been, Thou forever will be.

Great is Thy faithfulness!
Great is Thy faithfulness!
Morning by morning new mercies I see.
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided;
Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!

Summer and winter and springtime and harvest,
Sun, moon and stars in their courses above
Join with all nature in manifold witness
To Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love.


Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth
Thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide;
Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,
Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!

Song I've watched you sleeping for a while. I'd be the father of your child. I'd spend a lifetime with you. I know your fears and you know mine. We've had our doubts but now we're fine, And I love you, I swear that's true. I cannot live without you. Goodbye my lover. Goodbye my friend. You have been the one. You have been the one for me. And I still hold your hand in mine. In mine when I'm asleep. And I will bare my soul in time, when I'm kneeling at your feet. Goodbye my lover. Goodbye my friend. You have been the one. You have been the one for me. I'm so hollow, baby, I'm so hollow. I'm so, I'm so, I'm so hollow. I'm so hollow, baby, I'm so hollow.

Died with a Song

...“How Old Timofei Died With A Song” Analysis In Rike’s short story, “How Old Timofei Died With A Song” the story is told from the point of view of first person. Even though you never really know who the narrator is, the narrator tells you about how they enjoy telling stories to paralyzed people then goes on to tell a story about a man, Timofei who is the greatest singer of songs that is passed down from generation to generation. Timofei’s son leaves him to marry a peasant girl and when he does Timofei can no longer sing because he is so overwhelmed with grief. The son finally comes back, leaving his family, when he finds out how sick his father is, and there his father teaches him all of the songs he knows until he passes. Once Timofei passed, the son went out through the villages singing the songs with a tone that no one else has ever had. The narrator and the paralyzed man hint that maybe it was because he was so lonely, and died alone. Even though the point of view is first person, by the narrator telling a story it almost turns into limited omniscient, which the author probably did because it gives the story an interesting twist. By the author making the narrator switch point of views in the story it gives it a different feel, but is needed because it helps you understand the story that the narrator is telling more. If Rike wrote the story without the narrator telling it to the paralyzed man then you would never have the ending, “’So he didn’t learn that tone from......

...The song Temporary Home was featured on Carrie Underwood’s hit album Play On that was released in October of 2009. This song had no impact on me at all until March of 2010. One of my dearest friends, Breanna Nicole Barber, was in a motorcycle dirt bike accident. She fell off of the bike hitting her head causing major brain damage. She was a vegetable and was taken off of life support. Her funeral was several days later and it was really the most unbelievable thing that has ever happened to me. They played Temporary Home at her funeral. I knew what a temporary home meant to me. It meant that one day I’d be at my final destination and that would be heaven. In these next few paragraphs I will reinforce the word ‘temporary’. I’ll describe to you my idea of why Carrie Underwood addresses 3 different stages of life. The word ‘temporary’ is specifically reinforced numerous times throughout the song. Carrie uses phrases like, “house that will never be a home”, “nowhere to go”, “passing through”, and “just a stop”. We have a clear understanding of most of these things and that they intend on being for a short period of time. [What about these words/phrases?] Carrie introduces three different stages of life throughout the song. First she mentions a little boy who is in foster care that keeps getting moved and placed in homes that feel unwelcoming to him. Then she mentions a single mom that needs help, has a baby, and practically has nothing. Lastly she mentions an......

Song of Songs

...Song of Songs Rabbi Aqiba once said that “For in all the world there is nothing to equal the day on which the Song of Songs was given to Israel, for all the writings are Holy, but the Song of Songs is the Holy of Holies.” (Davidson) This statement is made in regards to whether or not the book “Song of Songs” is to be included in the canon on the Bible. This book is a collection of songs and love poetry between two lovers. This book can be considered as an allegory of human sexuality, or divine love. However, there is no direct mention of the Divine Presence anywhere within the book. Even the Jewish Rabbis with the most understanding of biblical concepts regarding sexuality have trouble agreeing that a book of seemingly secular love poetry should be included in the sacred canon.(Davidson) When Aqiba said the Song of Songs was the Holy of Holies, he probably intended that to mean that the Song was detailed symbolism of the historical relationship between Yahweh (the Divine Presence) and the people of Israel from the Exodus to the coming of the Messiah.(Davidson) During the time, sexual feelings were considered pagan and evil. Some Christian allegorists believe that the author (or authors) of the songs wrote in a way that disguised sexual expressing as a yearning for God. Most scholars believe that the authors purposely wrote about yearning for God in an incredibly sexual way to further imply the strong emotions behind said yearning. These songs are regardless a type of......

The Song

...The song "where Is the Love?" written by, Taboo,, with help of others such as Ron Fair, and recorded by the American hip-hop group The Black Eyed Peas. In this song, The Black Eyed Peas lament on various issues in the World, such as terrorism, racism, hypocrisy about the U.S. government, war, pollution, intolerance, and greed. I choose this song because as I was watching this music video, I thought that there are lots of worldwide issues that make our world disharmony and difficulty. I think the video describes nowadays world. Today the world is corrupted and vicious. There is at least a hundred murder cases in a day, happenings dealing with terrors and discrimination occur all around the world almost every second. It is easier to find hypocrisy and racism than peace and love. Furthermore, media and government highly influence people. For example, in the music video, children are playing violent games likely to act what they see in the media. Also, false information from media and government give negative images. I believe the mostly impacted for all corruptions of the world is our children, the next generation. In my opinion, people should be honest and try to make our world peaceful and lovable for our future generations. This is my interpretations of the first verse of lyrics. The question mark that appears in the intro of the song represents “Where is the love?” in the world. The first and second line of the first verse ‘What's wrong with......

...The song I choose to do was “ Runaway Love” by Ludacris ft. Mary J. Blige. The song focuses on three different scenarios dealing with young girls from the ages of 9-11. For the first scenario it focuses on a nine year old whose mother had many different men in her life. Throughout the men who go in and out of her mother life they are sexually abusing her. She tells her mother what is happening, but her mother does not believe her. The second scenario is about an eleven year old who is being beat by her alcoholic father and only had one friend who understands her. Walking home from school one day the friend is shot by a drive by bullet. Now she is left alone because that’s was the only person she had. On the last scenario an eleven year old is doing drugs and being sexually active with males that are older. She knows if her mom finds out she will go crazy. The sum of the three stories are these young girls are going through situation where they wish they could runaway and just forget everything that has happened.

Rap-metal charge of Limp Bizkit reacted with the energy of the crowd, and detonated with the two-hour blast. The sound of band’s live performance was worth of praise. It was as close as possible to the studio recordings. The volume was arranged perfectly, therefore, it was easy to hear every beat from any corner of the auditorium. There was no headache and temporary deafness as sometimes happens after the performance of rock bands. Each member of the band was worth of compliments and endless praise. There was no doubt about the mastery of Limp Bizkit. This band has gone through thousands of shows during 20 years of their career and they know exactly how to interact with the audience. The energy was oozing through the artists allowing fans to get rid of all negativity and enjoy the good vibes the band was sending. The guitarist, Wes Borland, expressed himself through the air tearing guitar riffs and expressive gestures, giving the audience an example of how to behave on the Limp Bizkit's shows. Sam Rivers tormented his LED bass. After the concert, the fans referred to John Otto as “the god of thunder” because of his flawless drum performance.

Song Analysis

...alternative rock band Coldplay, explains this intangible terror, in a song called "Trouble". The song was released in the United Kingdom on October 26, 2000. Not long after, the song became a hit, and would go onto win countless awards and gain worldwide popularity. Martin uses personification and symbolism to illustrate different ways of feeling after a bitter relationship. Afterwards, he uses the literary device refrain to describe the theme in an apologetic tone. Finally uses repetition to exemplify his conflict with his conscience which leaves the listener wondering the "what if" of their past. This is a six-stanza free verse love song, which explains feelings of remorse after a relationship has come to an end. The first three stanzas consist of a Quatrain, which go in-depth of self-realization of the mistakes he made in the past. The fourth stanza has five lines, which illustrate how lonesome he feels. The third and fifth stanza is refrain, since it is a chorus. The chorus creates an apologetic tone, which can also be picked up throughout the rest of the song. The last three lines also have repetition to demonstrate on how his guilt manifests into a superego.  Martin uses personification and symbolism in the second line of the first stanza, which states, "A spider web, it's tangled up with me" to explain how there is an internal fight he must overcome. The term "spider web" repeats a few more times in the song that captures the audience to relate to their selves. The......

Folk Song

...MEANING OF FOLKSONG A consistent definition of traditional folk music is elusive. The terms folk music, folk song, and folk dance are comparatively recent expressions. They are extensions of the term folklore, which was coined in 1846 by the English antiquarian William Thomas to describe "the traditions, customs, and superstitions of the uncultured classes." The term is further derived from the German expression Volk, in the sense of "the people as a whole" as applied to popular and national music by Johann Gottfried Herder and the German Romantics over half a century earlier. Traditional folk music also includes most indigenous music. However, despite the assembly of an enormous body of work over some two centuries, there is still no certain definition of what folk music (or folklore, or the folk) is. Folk music may tend to have certain characteristics[2] but it cannot clearly be differentiated in purely musical terms. One meaning often given is that of "old songs, with no known composers", another is that of music that has been submitted to an evolutionary "process of oral transmission.... the fashioning and re-fashioning of the music by the community that give it its folk character." Such definitions depend upon "(cultural) processes rather than abstract musical types...", upon "continuity and oral transmission...seen as characterizing one side of a cultural dichotomy, the other side of which is found not only in the lower layers of feudal, capitalist and some oriental...

Song Analysis

...Bob Dylan - "Maggie's Farm" I chose this song because it is a classic Dylan song; it reflects his poetic style and how he wanted to make music, write songs, and experiment because it's what he wanted to do, and if it upset people, then so be it. I believe that the meaning of this song is that Dylan was a worker for his fans, the record company, the press, and the media but not for himself, and that he was going to break away from being pigeonholed into one genre of music and do what he felt like doing. Music wise, this song represents a strong change in Dylan's style. Up until the mid 60's, Dylan was strictly known as a folk singer and songwriter. His music usually composed of an acoustic guitar and a harmonica and occasionally another instrument here or there. This song represents Dylan's change to an electric rock sound, but still stayed true to his folk and blues roots. The music of this song has a very bluesy feel to it which may represent the working that he describes. The lyrics to "Maggie's Farm" go along perfect with Dylan's sudden change of sound. I believe that "Maggie" was intended to represent the people who listened to his music. He says that in the morning he would "pray for rain", which could have symbolized that he doesn't want to have to work, and that he had "a head full of ideas that are drivin' me insane". I feel that this represents that he wasn't able to break free and truly express himself. He also says "it's a shame the way she makes me scrub the...

Song of Solomon

...Jessica Schaub 12/1/14 Eng. 232/Section 03 Song of Solomon: A Bildungsroman of Milkman Song of Solomon by Toni Morrison, is a brilliant synthesis of a mythic journey, family drama and story of origin. This is the story of Macon Milkman Dead, heir to the richest black family in a Midwestern town, as he makes a voyage of rediscovery, travelling southwards geographically and inwards spiritually. Morrison’s narrative rendering of the black community along with her protagonist problematic relationship with himself, his family, and that community all lend them-selves to the very definition of a classic bildungsroman tale; though it is so much richer and fuller than anything that word could connote. A bildungsroman can be defined as “a class of novel that deals with the coming-of-age or formative years of an individual”. Furthermore, in a bildungsroman, a main protagonist usually undergoes some transformation after seeking truth or philosophical enlightenment. In Morrison’s novel, the plot follows the main protagonist Milkman as he matures within his community while developing relationships with others and discovering his individual identity. The symbolism of flying is very relevant to issues of identity. Milkman struggles to break away from dependence of Macon II is really the main struggle throughout the novel on an individual level. As he tries to break away and reach his full potential, he is able to fly at Guitar. He does not do this alone however, through all of the......
