Blessings – Laura Story (guitar cover)

Instrumental Cover of Laura Story’s “Blessings”. Check it out – I hope you will be blessed by the words and music of this song.
Recorded December of 2013.

LYRICS:
We pray for blessings, we pray for peace
Comfort for family, protection while we sleep
We pray for healing, for prosperity
We pray for Your mighty hand to ease our suffering
And all the while, You hear each spoken need
Yet love us way too much to give us lesser things

‘Cause what if your blessings come through rain drops
What if Your healing comes through tears
What if a thousand sleepless nights are what it takes to know You’re near
What if trials of this life are Your mercies in disguise

We pray for wisdom, Your voice to hear
We cry in anger when we cannot feel You near
We doubt your goodness, we doubt your love
As if every promise from Your word is not enough
And all the while, You hear each desperate plea
And long that we’d have faith to believe

‘Cause what if your blessings come through rain drops
What if Your healing comes through tears
What if a thousand sleepless nights are what it takes to know You’re near
What if trials of this life are Your mercies in disguise

When friends betray us
When darkness seems to win
We know that pain reminds this heart
That this is not,
This is not our home
It’s not our home

‘Cause what if your blessings come through rain drops
What if Your healing comes through tears
What if a thousand sleepless nights are what it takes to know You’re near

What if my greatest disappointments or the aching of this life
Is the revealing of a greater thirst this world can’t satisfy
What if trials of this life
The rain, the storms, the hardest nights
Are your mercies in disguise


This World Is Not My Home

Playing the well known hymn “This World is Not my Home” on classical guitar. Enjoy!

LYRICS:
I. This world is not my home I’m just passing through
my treasures are laid up somewhere beyond the blue
the angels beckon me from Heaven’s open door
and I can’t feel at home in this world anymore

Chorus: O Lord you know I have no friend like you
if Heaven’s not my home then Lord what will I do?
the angels beckon me from Heaven’s open door
and I can’t feel at home in this world anymore

II. They’re all expecting me and that’s one thing I know
my savior pardoned me and now I onward go
I know he’ll take me through though I am weak and poor
and I can’t feel at home in this world anymore

III. Just up in Glory Land we’ll live eternally
the saints on every hand are shouting victory
their song of sweetest praise drifts back from Heaven’s shore
and I can’t feel at home in this world anymore

Great Is Thy Faithfulness (guitar instrumental)

An instrumental rendition of the timeless song, “Great is thy Faithfulness”. May each one of us find that God is faithful even when we miss the mark. It is God who paved the way of salvation freely for us, through his faithful love and unending kindness.

LYRICS:
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 wilt be

Refrain:
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


I Promise (guitar cover)

New guitar cover coming from this song written by Jaci Velasquez – I Promise. Hope you enjoy it!

LYRICS:

Lord, you know my heart
And all my desires
And the secret things I’ll never tell
Lord, you know them well
Though I may be young
I see and understand
That at times, like sheep, we go astray
And things get out of hand

So I promise to be true to you
To live my life in purity
As unto you, waiting for the day
When I hear you say
Here is the one I have created
Just for you

Until then, O lord
I will be content
Knowing that true love will come someday
It will only come from you
Cause I have seen the suffering
That loneliness can cause
When we choose to give our love away
Without a righteous cause

So I promise to be true to you
To live my life in purity
As unto you, waiting for the day
When I hear you say
Here is the one I have created
Just for you
