God Gave me you

This was my tribute to the 10 years of ministry of New Song Church.  10 years ago, I was searching and praying for a church home.  I received a phone call to come and play the piano for a Lutheran Church that didn’t even have a building.  I was told that I would just be needed for 2 weeks.  Well, I am still there 10 years later and I am so grateful that God has answered my prayers.  I have been able to grow in my faith and relationship with Christ because of this congregation and my pastors.  They have guided and nurtured me as a child of God and I will forever be thankful and humbled to worship Him alongside this congregation.  Thanks be to God!

Here I Am To Worship

I’ve always loved this classic praise song as it truly helps me to just be in His presence.  “One thing have I asked of the Lord, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life”  – Psalm 24: 4

To You Alone

New Song Prayer Labyrinth

New Song Prayer Labyrinth

Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, thank You for being all that You are.  Thank You for bringing back hope and joy.  Thank You for showing us just how much we are loved by Almighty God.  We ask for patience and guidance throughout this life.  Take away the doubt and fear that the world throws at us and let our faith in You be the firm foundation that our life is built upon.  Help us to let go of grudges or any ill will against our brothers and sisters knowing that we are all sinners and saints.  Let us give the same compassion, kindness, forgiveness and love that is given to us from the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost. To You alone we live and give all that we have knowing that because Christ lives we can live, confident and free, knowing that this world is not our home.

Bring us back to You

From Evangelical Lutheran Worship Hymnal

From Evangelical Lutheran Worship Hymnal

Lord God, thank You for allowing us to come into Your presence and experience Your grace, mercy and love.  You are in the business of changing the world and changing lives.  We ask that You would change whatever needs to be changed in our hearts and minds so that we can be the people that You made us to be: People of compassion, forgiveness and hope.  And even though we may wander, just help us to listen and hear Your constant voice that will always lead us back to You.  Bring back joy into this life.  Bring back hope.  And bring back the love that we should have for each other. Clear away any of the nonsense that would distract us from accessing our faith so that we can live this life confidently knowing that this world is not our home because we have been promised a life after this in eternity with the Heavenly Father through the sacrifice of His only Son and by the power of His Holy Spirit we have all been saved forever.

In The First Light

This song is truly an anthem for my faith and it touches my heart each time I hear it.   My sister from another mother, Mrs. Jennifer Fancher, didn’t just sing this song…she shared her whole soul, heart and faith in Christ.  I will forever be grateful that we were able to share this moment with the King.  Blessings!!!

My Soul Does Magnify the Lord

This is one of my favorite songs from our first Christmas Concert 10 years ago. It is based on the Magnificat which is one of the most ancient Christian hymns from the Gospel of Luke where Mary sings that her soul “magnifies the Lord.”
