I Will Sing: Faith

branches

Unless you’re helplessly tone-deaf, you’ll hear the unvarnished attempt of a songwriter
whose gift wasn’t singing. I can’t help wince at my voice but if the Scriptures sung in crude,
bare worship should bless anyone, the embarrassment will have been worth it. I thought
the song of hope would take us nicely from the last post Beauty From Ashes to the
one that’s coming up. You can zoom for the lyrics. Thanks for listening. Love, Me.

  1. The last time you played the piano for us (no singing then) I congratulated you on having the courage to perform before an audience of approximately 7,000 people. Your audience has now grown to almost 10,000 (no doubt you will hit that magic figure later this week). Let me be the first to congratulate you and also to say how moved I was by your singing.

    • “The last time you played the piano for us (no singing then)”

      I realized you thought I was playing here, too. I wrote the song on my guitar in my dorm room in college but I should’ve clarified that an accomplished pianist played the keyboard this time around. It was he who did the recording and drew out my voice.

    • Very sweet of you, C. Yes, I wrote the music but it was a concert pianist who played this particular track (and recorded me on a…shall we say…well-serving, generous expensive microphone). Appreciate the heartfelt response.

  2. D: You are a beautiful singer. It’s nice to hear your voice, especially as it carries in it so much feeling. You made me smile, and uplifted my spirit.

    Love,

    • Guess whom I was thinking of ystrdy and today?? *grin* I’m knee-deep – make that waist-deep in writing, coordinating guests, trying to get back to everyone, and oh yeah, the schooling. Dya start?? C loving it, I imagine.

      • Hi Diana. My mom was here for a month. She just left so the schooling only really started this week. Got off to a rough start, but has gotten much better. He loves not going to school and our new location.

      • Awwww, thanks Diana. Some days go very well. Some days are a real struggle. The Asperger’s keeps me guessing at times. Like, why such simple things like 1+1=2, is so complicated for him. And like today, he just can’t seem to grasp ‘sequencing’ yet (first, next, last). I’m trying to incorporate this into daily things so that he ‘experiences’ the concept.
        Anyhow, thanks again Diana.

      • “Some days go very well. Some days are a real struggle.” Sounds like homeschooling. But yes, it’s harder for you, S. I’ll pray for patience (and an extra dose for me, too). That daily application is the way to go. Thumbs-up.

  3. I just can’t find the right words to say what I feel while listening to you… I am so honored to have you here on wordpress, you’re such a talent in every way.
    And this is such a powerful message… If we would have just a little more faith, this world would be a better place.

  4. I think that was rather grand!! I felt like I was a judge on The Voice, I heard this great singing and pressed the button, my chair turns around and there you were. That brought me to that place where God is and I love to go there. Very good!

  5. Listening to the track, your words of โ€œKorean momโ€ did come to mind. But that doesnโ€™t make this any less beautiful, any less faithful. Plus, you hit the notes better than some people Iโ€™ve heard. โ€œReplete with errorsโ€ or not, the potential is there, especially if you already write so well. ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Lovely song, D. Knocked off work not too long ago, this is great to unwind to. Love that you included sheet music – it always tells us so much about the music ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. What a wonderful way to set the mood and start my morning right. You have a beautiful voice Diana and your faith shines right through. Not that you need to be in tune to glorify God as I was reminded in church just last Sunday. The person next to me was singing loud and really, really, really off key. I was touched by her enthusiasm for God and her unembarrasment at expressing her love. I’m sure He was too. Thanks for sharing this!

  8. You are wonderfully gifted in so many beautiful ways…I always see the exquisite loveliness found in your heart expressed vividly in all you share Diana. I smile because you are just being you, so natural and the song is delightful! Thanks for sharing!

  9. Lovely! Just lovely! You put your voice down, needlessly. If I could sing that – I’d be jumping with joy ๐Ÿ™‚ And the spirit of worship was more than visible here…
