The Joy of Grace

Solo version by Richard Schletty (guitar and voice). A collaboration with David Gomez, www.fourhandsproject.com.

The Joy of Grace (no. 11)
5th Movement, Hungry for Heaven – www.hungryforheaven.com

Rolling down a highway slipstream
You're missing signs, you don't look both ways
Just passing time in your dream machine
On a journey, out of phase

In the cradle of a grand creation
Under the moon and stars above
You begin to read the cracks and the ripples
You begin to feel a season of love

You are a member of His body
You are reflected in His face
You are a laborer for justice 
You are infected with His grace

You are cooled in the shade of a holy tree
Watered from the well of eternity
Nourished by the Word, dancing joyously

[refrain]
Our Lord will lead you to this place
Our Lord will bring the joy of grace

Write your songs in the desert
Dream your visions in streams of unrest
Run the viridian shoreline
Harvest the teeming tempest forest

[refrain]
Our Lord will lead you to this place
Our Lord will bring the joy of grace

Praise the God of all souls
Praise the Lord of the way
Praise the Healer of woes
Praise our Hope for each day

Hear the unborn babies wailing
Fear our lost humanity
Hear the rattle of broken vows
Fear the shadows of vanity

What will bring us through?
It is grace!
Know the joy of grace!
What will bring us through?
It is grace!
Know the joy of grace!

[refrain]
Our Lord will lead you to this place
Our Lord will bring the joy of grace
Our Lord will lead you to this place
Our Lord will bring the joy of grace

Breath of Dawn: music for easy listening and reflection (by Paul F. Page)

Paul F. Page, composer

Paul F. Page: Breath of Dawn

"Breath of Dawn" is a fine album of quiet, reflective orchestral music that creates a calm, peaceful atmosphere for easy listening and reflection. Classically inspired with a cinematic flair. Composed and performed by Paul F. Page - www.paulpage.org

Paul F. Page's music comes from a background steeped in classical music from the Baroque era to the present. Elements of Mendelssohn, Chopin, Mozart, Faure, Debussy, as well as influences from the visual/cinematic world can be found in this "hybrid-classical" album. Paul has been writing music for over 50 years, having worked as a choral director, arranger, composer, and as a solo artist for the last 45 years. He has created ballet, solo "art" songs, liturgical choral and assembly music, music for orchestra and solo orchestral instruments, and music for organ and piano. He has been recognized for his work as a liturgical and classical composer by ASCAP for the past 14 years, and his vocal music is performed in churches and schools throughout the U.S. where it is included in numerous publications of his octavos and solo songs.

Paul's music is featured at the on-line composers' site "MacJams.com" where his compositions and performances are well-known and respected for their quality, sensitivity, attention to detail, and immediate accessibility.  Read Full Story >>>

Let Me Live!

Is this what God would have you do: take away a life its right to live,
prevent a birth into the world when he has so much to love and give?

I know the sorrow you will feel. Oh choose the gift of life, not to destroy!
Hold me in your arms for just a while and soon your pain will turn to joy.

As a child we must enter the Kingdom of God. As a child God was worshiped and adored.
To the wise the wonders of heaven are concealed. But to the children the glory is revealed.

Did you not know that all my days were written in God's great master plan?
I was woven together from the depths of earth long before the world ever began.

As a child we must enter the Kingdom of God. As a child God was worshiped and adored.
To the wise the wonders of heaven are concealed. But to the children the glory is revealed.
Yes to the children the glory is revealed!
