I nominate mother Mary comes to me

quote:
When I find myself in times of trouble, mother Mary comes to me,
speaking words of wisdom, let it be.
And in my hour of darkness she is standing right in front of me,
speaking words of wisdom, let it be.

Let it be, let it be, let it be, let it be.
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be.

And when the broken hearted people living in the world agree,
there will be an answer, let it be.
For though they may be parted there is still a chance that they will see,
there will be an answer. let it be.


Let it be The Beatles

And in my hour of darkness she is standing right in front of me

i'm not familiar with that song? is that an actual beattles song, or rather adapted lyrics on the beetles song? i personally have a big problem with getting wisdom from a dead person named mary, a sinner and human and not devine just like i am, though she is special in her being chosen to be the mother of the messiah - Jesus. but if you changed the name to Jesus, and she to he, i could dig that song.

anyhow here is my first song.. made by rich mullens, in the 80's i think.. i like it alot (especially Kevin max's rendition of it)

"Save me save me
Save me from my contempt for the things that make me strong
Save me from any value I could put a price tag on
Save me from Soviet propagandists
Lord save me from Washington
Please save me Lord save me

Save me save me
Save me from the slick pop sounds
Laid down in virgin vinyl grooves
Save me from any woman who would be turned
On to the aftershave I use
Save me from trendy religion that makes
Cheap cliches out of timeless truths
Lord save me please save me
Save me"

those lyrics are different but i like them. my song would have to be "hardway" by dc talk...

(chorus)
Some people gotta learn the hardway
I guess Iím the kinda guy
That has to find out for myself
I had to learn the hardway, father
Iím on my knees and Iím crying for help

Now Iíve been high and Iíve been low
Iíve been some places that you will not go
I never thought there would come the day
When I wished I never wouldíve lived this way
But Iíve been searching for a long, long time
I thought the devil was a friend of mine
I turned my back on everything that was true
And wasted years that belong to you

(repeat chorus)

It took so long for me to see
That Iím a victim of nature and me
Left to myself I realize
I am the maker of my own demise

But you accept me every time and again
And never mention just how selfish Iíve been
Why must it always take me so long to see
That I have fallen but you will forgive me?

(repeat chorus 2x)

The warning signs are like flares in the night
Still I proceed my greed is in spite of the fire
I know thatís bound to burn
Why is it that I always gotta learn...
The hardway, the hardway, I had to learn the hardway
The hardway, the hardway, I had to learn the hardway

Thats a great song. Even though its not christian, I like Blow Me Away by Breaking Benjamin


They fall in line
One at a time
Ready to play
I canít see them anyway
No time to lose
Weíve got to move
Steady your hand
I am losing sight again
Fire your guns
Its time to run
Blow me away
I will stay unless I may
After the fall
Weíll shake it off
Show me the way

Only the strongest will survive
Lead me to heaven when we die
I have a shadow on the wall
Iíll be the one to save us all

Thereís nothing left
So save your breath
Lying and wait
Caught inside this tidal wave
Youíre covers blown
No where to go
Holding your fate
Knowing that I will walk alone
Fire your guns
Its time to run
Blow me away
I will stay unless I may
After the fall
Weíll shake it off
Show me the way

Only the strongest will survive
Lead me to heaven when we die
I have a shadow on the wall
Iíll be the one to save us all
You wanted it back

Only the strongest will survive
Lead me to heaven when we die
I have a shadow on the wall
Iíll be the one to save us all
Save us all

P.O.D's "Masterpiece Conspiracy"

Evil eyes behind their smiles
You swallow it up when sincerity lies
And lock me up, label dangerous files
For the unknown, so you're scared of my style
Alert the press and address the states
Of emergency with a crew you love to hate
First mistake, you were never ready
Dance with the dead, better be ten times more deadly
This is me, I'm always the same
Virus in the system, crash the mainframe
Uprise, now fall in line
Roll with the pack or get left behind

Chorus:
It's a masterpiece conspiracy
(Make way)
It's a masterpiece conspiracy
(Make way)
It's a masterpiece conspiracy
(Make way)
It's a masterpiece

I'd rather hear it from you than be lied to
Call it what it is, like the heathens do
Lives of betrayal, deceived again
Exposed by the light, two colors of sin
Take down the regimen, break the trend
Rushed by your peers and your so-called friends
Keep your peoples tight, watch your enemies close
Trust what you know, soon enough they'll choke
Where were you when we started this thing
You wasn't around, this ain't yours to claim
You'll never take what's been given to us
Wipe that smile off your face and a look of disgust
Uprise, now fall in line
Roll with the pack or get left behind

(Chorus)

Liar, backstabber, betrayer
Deceiver, liar
Liar, backstabber, betrayer
Deceiver, liar

Backstabber
Yeah, you're such a backstabber


best line from the song:
"Uprise, now fall in line
Roll with the pack or get left behind"

Asleep in the Light - (By Keith Green)

Do you see, do you see
All the people sinking down
Don`t you care, don`t you care
Are you gonna let them drown

How can you be so numb
Not to care if they come
You close your eyes
And pretend the job`s done

"Oh bless me Lord, bless me Lord"
You know it`s all I ever hear
No one aches, no one hurts
No one even sheds one tear

But He cries, He weeps, He bleeds
And He cares for your needs
And you just lay back
And keep soaking it in,
Oh, can`t you see it`s such a sin?

Cause He brings people to your door,
And you turn them away
As you smile and say,
"God bless you, be at peace"
And all heaven just weeps
Cause Jesus came to your door
You`ve left him out on the streets

Open up open up
And give yourself away
You see the need, you hear the cries
So how can you delay

God`s calling and you`re the one
But like Jonah you run
He`s told you to speak
But you keep holding it in,
Oh can`t you see it`s such a sin?

The world is sleeping in the dark
That the church just can`t fight
Cause it`s asleep in the light
How can you be so dead
When you`ve been so well fed
Jesus rose from the grave
And you, you can`t even get out of bed

Oh, Jesus rose from the dead
Come on, get out of your bed

How can you be so numb
Not to care if they come
You close your eyes
And pretend the job`s done
You close your eyes
And pretend the job`s done

Don`t close your eyes
Don`t pretend the jobs done
Come away, come away, come away with Me my love,
Come away, from this mess, come away with Me, my love.


What a song.

"Well the funniest thing that He's done,"
"Is love this poor stubborn rebellious world,"
"While the hate for Him just goes on."

Sorry for the double post but I felt like I should post another song ...
It's another from Keith Green - (How Can They Live Without Jesus)


How can they live without Jesus
How can live without God`s love
How can they feel so at home down here
When there`s so much more up above

Throwin` away things that matter
They hold on to things that don`t
The world has gone crazy
But soon maybe
A lot more are gonna know

For maybe they don`t understand it
Or maybe they just haven`t heard
Or maybe we`re not doin` all we can
Living up to His Holy Word

`Cause phonies have come
And wrongs been done
Even killing in Jesus` name
And if you`ve been burned
Here`s what I`ve learned
The Lord`s not the one to blame

For He`s not just a religion
With steeples and bells
Or a salesman who will sell you
The things you just want to hear

For His love was such
That he suffered so much
To cause some of us
Just to follow, follow

So many laughing at Jesus
While the funniest thing that He`s done
Is love this whole stubborn rebellious world
While their hate for Him just goes on

And love just like that
Will bring him back
For the few He can call His friends
The ones He`s found true
Who`ve made it through
Enduring until the end
The ones He`s found true
Who`ve made it through
Enduring until the end

(hmmm... had my sig wrong all that time)

Eternal Decision - Stomping Ground

You can hear it here: http://www.eternaldecision.com/mp3s/STOMPING%20GROUND-high.mp3

lyrics:

Stomping Ground, I take the land I've found.
I claim this place for God, so his word abounds.
Where I tread, I'm Holy Spirit led.
I stomp on satans head with the word I spread.

God is here, can you feel him near.
I can shout my praises to him cause I'm feeling no fear.
Where I stand, I'm taking back the land.
Because I stand upon the Rock and not on the sand.

I keep on stomping.
You're on my stomping ground.

In my life, I'm walking in the light.
God is in control and I feel alive.
And so I live, I take my thoughts captive.
Subject my mind because it's not prohibitive.

God controls, I took Him in my soul.
The landscape of my mind Jesus calls His home.
Think it odd? In my mind He trod.
My thoughts are not my own,
they belong to God.
