This set of songs all have Biblical inspirations
This is a ‘fun’ and slightly tongue-in-cheek song!
Noah and the Ark: The Sun Ain’t Gonna Shine No More (another ‘oldie’ from Chris) This works very well when ‘dramatised’, with a soloist singing the main part, and everyone joining in the refrain and the chorus. Despite the ‘tragedy’ element to this song, it’s great fun!
Psalm 23: I Will Rest
Psalm 23: My Shepherd
Psalm 23: The Lord’s My Shepherd This was one of Chris’ first compositions, written for ‘The New Countryfolk’ (see under ‘Praise Him!’). The tune was originally written for ‘There Is A Green Hill’ and also works very well with ‘O Little Town Of Bethlehem’. Here is a 4-part version, with keyboard accompaniment:
The Lord’s My Shepherd (Keyboard)
Here is an up-beat variation on Ps.23. The chorus uses the the first two lines of the Hymn ‘The King Of Love My Shepherd Is’ ~ in Swahili, as taught to me many years ago by a Missionary! The verses are a paraphrase of the Hymn. It’s sung with plenty of energy!
Psalm 28: You Are My
Psalm 66: All The Earth
Psalm 103: Praise The Lord, O My Soul!
Psalm 117: Praise The Lord!
Psalm 121: Stay In The Shade
Psalm 121: I Lift Up Mine Eyes The title, at least, was inspired by this psalm
Psalm 150: Praise The Lord
The Lord’s Prayer: Thine Is The Kingdom
Nunc Dimitis: Nunc Dimitis
Matthew 13: The Seed
Matthew 16: On The Rock
Luke 10 (The Good Samaritan): The Stranger The words of this composition came to me after seeing the tragedy of the brutal murder of a young off-duty soldier on a London street (in May 2013). Watching the women who went to comfort the mortally-wounded young man, and also to remonstrate with the perpetrators also reminded me of one of the best-known parables in the New Testament, ‘The Good Samaritan’.
Luke 15: Prodigal Loosely based on the well-known parable, ‘poetic licence’ abounds here!
John 2: Come To Me As Water This song has a definite ‘communion’ theme when it comes to the words of the verses, but the chorus was inspired by Jesus’ turning water into wine at the wedding at Cana
John 4: The Water Of Life
1 Corinthians Ch13: The Love Of God
Ephesians 6: 16-18: The Armour Of God
Revelations 3:20 The Door
