"Heart and Hands" †

Style wise, it's a corporate worship song... somewhat slow, and repetitive. But, it's a simple melody with simple chord progressions that are very easy to "build" with over the course of the song. :)


"HEART AND HANDS"

With my hands I will show I surrender to you

Before man I will show my surrender is true

But with my heart I will prove I surrender to you

To show the one who sees my soul I surrender to you

With heart and hands...


I will show my surrender with my hands

I will show my surrender before man

But I will prove my surrender with my heart

'Cause surrender with my heart is what you want

Heart and hands...

"Smile" †

This is my attempt at writing a sappy song, haha... hope you guys like the lyrics!


"Smile"

(verse 1)
Yeah, I know that life is hard
But I know that God is good
So don't worry about tomorrow
'Cause He'll take care of you just like the sparrow

(chorus)
Smile (smile!) smile bright,
Because your smile (smile!) shines like the stars tonight
Oh smile (smile!) smile soon
Because your smile (smile!) glows like the moon
Yeah smile (smile!) smile bright
'Cause if you smile at me, then I just might... smile too!

(verse 2)
Maybe you don't know
What your smile can do
But when I see that smile on your face
Suddenly, everything's okay

*chorus*

(bridge)
And if your smile (smile!) plays hide and seek, I will find it for you
And when your smile (smile!) is hard to keep, I will smile for you
And if I ever cause your smile to go
Then there's one thing I want you to know:
I'm sorry, please forgive me

*chorus*

"Remember" †




I wrote this song after hearing a great message by my brother, Erik, on how we need to "remember" God. It talked about how we need to remember who God is... whats He's done, and teach our families so we don't forget.

A lot of the lines and phrases of this song are scripture, mainly because God's word is way more powerful than mine, so if I can use his... ALL THE MORE POWER!

Psalm 119:55 "I remember your name in the night, O LORD, and keep your law."

"Remember"

Whoa-oh, whoa-oh-oh, whoa-oh oh oh
Whoa-oh, whoa-oh-oh, whoa-oh oh oh

I will remember you in when I rise
Your goodness Lord
I will remember you in the night
And keep your law
(2x)

Whoa-oh, whoa-oh-oh, whoa-oh oh oh

Whoa-oh, whoa-oh-oh, whoa-oh oh oh


Let us remember who our God is
You are our Savior, our lives to you we give
From generation to generation

We will never forget who our God is


We will not forget what You've done
Your mighty works

When You sacrificed your Son

Love undeserved
(2x)

Whoa-oh, whoa-oh-oh, whoa-oh oh oh
Whoa-oh, whoa-oh-oh, whoa-oh oh oh


Let us remember who our God is
You are our Savior, our lives to you we give

From generation to generation

We will never forget who our God is


We remember You, please remember us
When we come to your kingdom

We live for You, 'Cause You died for us

So we could come to your kingdom

Our sons and daughters will learn your ways

So we will never forget who our God is

"Until I See You Again" †



This is a song I wrote for my oldest brother, Erik. I've grown up with him my whole life and he has become one of my closest friends in the past years. He got a job working for Answers in Genesis last year and has been working from home. Now however, he needs to be in the office, so he bought a house in Petersburg, KY, and is moving down there in a week! Crazy how life changes...


"Until I See You Again"

My friend you have been
Through the thick and the thin
My friend you will remain
Until I see you again

I... I will miss you, but these lives are moving on
I... I will never forget you... until I see you again

You have shown me the way
Through the example of your faith
And I'll continue to look up to you
Until I see you again

I... I will miss you, but these lives are moving on
I... I will never forget you... until I see you again

Here I stand
Saying goodbye
But I will pray for you
Until I see you again

I... I will miss you, but these lives are moving on
I... I will never forget you... until I see you again

I'll see you, I'll see you, I'll see you again
I'll see you, I'll see you, I'll see you again
Very soon

"Dreamin" †

Hey guys, In case any of you were wondering if I am still writing songs, the answer is yes. Actually, I wrote several songs while at camp this summer and have written several more since I have been home. I just haven't had the time or rather the motivation to type them up and post them. BUT. Now I am, so here you go!

I wrote this song while at camp and thinking about my female friends and sisters that were staying pure and waiting for the guy that God has for them, but felt like there was no one on the other end of it all that's out there waiting for them too. So I wrote this song to tell them and any of you who feel the same way, that there IS someone out there... and he's crazy about you!

"DREAMIN"

(verse 1)
You are the girl of someone's dreams
And he is out there waiting for someone he's never seen
So wait for him, his eyes are gleaming, his smile beaming

(chorus)
'Cause he is dreamin, dreamin, he's dreamin, dreamin
He is dreamin, dreamin, dreamin about you

(verse 2)
You're beautiful to him and to the Lord
And you are the one that he adores
Love will come in its season, for the right reason

(chorus)
While he is dreamin, dreamin, he's dreamin, dreamin
He is dreamin, dreamin, dreamin about you

(bridge)
He's dreamin about you
He can't live without you
And you are everything to him

Summer is Ending

Hey everyone who reads this or just happened to come across this random post, I'm back from camp! Well, actually camp ended about a month ago, but I've been too busy to start writing again.

For whoever doesn't know, I worked at a Christian camp called Circle C Ranch this summer. I lead the worship team and counseled 7-9 year old boys. Fun fun fun. haha

Now that I'm home from camp I've been working with my dad full time, training to take over the camera biz, as well as learning the ropes on the manure digesters and other stuff he does.

God has taught me so much this summer and brought tons of new friends into my life that are so great but at the same time it is often the old friends that I am most thankful for!

I've been writing songs still too so you can expect to see some new lyrics on here soon. I also hope to have some videos on here so you can actually hear it as well as read it. Hopefully I will be doing some recording as well.. so that would be cool.

KEEP IT EXTREME!
IM OUT † †

"Every Five Minutes" †


Another song I wrote this week.

"Every Five Minutes"
(verse 1)
I fall down, you pick me up, I fall down again
Lord how many times will you forgive my sin?
"Seventy times seven" is what you replied
And all I could see was the love in your eyes
(chorus)
Every morning your mercies are new,
And every five minutes I'm forgiven by you

Every morning your mercies are new,
And every five minutes I'm forgiven by you
(verse 2)
How could you use me after all that I do?
And after all you gave me what could I offer you?
You said in my weakness that you are shown strong
And you are proved holy by all I do wrong

KEEP IT EXTREME!!
I'M OUT † †
