Daddy’s Best Sermon

     This song, as you’ll see in the video, was written as a birthday gift to my Dad when he was still with us. He’s been with the Lord since Nov 28, 2015.

      Dad pastored for many years in Point Pleasant, WV. The lyric highlights the fact that his great skill in the pulpit was backed up by his integrity as a husband and father. My Mother, Lillian, my sister, Jeannie, and the members of each of our families are proud of his legacy and we look forward to seeing him again.

 

“Daddy’s Best Sermon” is available at this time only as a free video view. If you, too, were raised in the home of a Dad who was a pastor and who earned your respect, I hope you’ll share this song with him.

I’ve Never Felt So Close

“I’ve Never Felt So Close” was inspired by the story of a friend’s real life encounter with the comforting words of Psalm 73:28… 

“But as for me, the nearness of God is my good; I have made the Lord God my refuge, that I may tell of all Your works.”

I have no idea who might be encouraged by this song…I only know that I’m supposed to offer it…not just to tell the story of the one who lived it but for the one who someday will. 

“I’ve Never Felt So Close”

I won’t forget when I got the news

They said they did everything they could do

I’ve never been so alone and so afraid

A flood of fear had come to wash my hopes away

 

But in that room where my world turned so dark

He came to me and whispered to my heart

“I’m here with you, I heard your cry”

And in that moment I realized

 

I’ve never felt so close to the Lord

I’ve never known His presence like this before

In my time of greatest need

Like a friend He stood by me

I’ve never felt so close to the Lord

 

There was a peace I can’t explain

I even heard Him say my name

And with Him so near I knew it very well

The storm had passed before the last raindrop fell

 

Cho…

“Unspoken Request” Video

This lyric video was posted on You Tube by a gentleman named, David McCann. It features a song recorded by The McKameys on their Precious Seed CD that was written by Steve. Perhaps this will encourage someone who needs to be reminded that God cares very much about your “unspoken request.”

A Prayer Song For Your Family Thanksgiving Meal

 

Chapman Family Prayer 1957

Several years ago it was our family’s turn to say the table grace at the gathering of the Williamson “clan” on Thanksgiving Day in West Virginia. It was no surprise to everyone that Steve had put our table blessing to music. As he played the guitar the four of us began to sing the following song before the meal.

Through the years this short song has been used at mealtimes not only by our family but by many others who have heard the recording of it.

We invite you to use this musical prayer as you give thanks at your table.

God’s blessings to each of you… Steve & Annie

 

Guest of Honor

As our family gathers round this table
Where this meal has been prepared
Let all our hearts be grateful
As we offer up this prayer

“Our Father in Heaven
For this meal You have given
We want to say thank You
From our hearts
Bless the ones who prepared it
And Lord as we share it
Would You stay with us
And be our Guest of Honor.”

“I Don’t Wanna Go Back…To The Old Me”

old houseEphesians 4:22 says, You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires… 

Whether you have recently given your life to Christ or you made that decision many years ago, we think you’ll appreciate this song that declares… “I don’t wanna go back to the old me!”
