CRADLED IN THE ARMS OF GOD: First presented in TORONTO,
October 2002 by Valerie Mero-Smith. In the summer of 2003 the song was presented to nearly 800 delegates from 110 countries at the Prison Fellowship International World Convocation here in Toronto by Valerie Mero-Smith. It is on her recording "IN THE QUIET HOURS" in both solo and 4 part harmony versions. The song touches people deeply and tears often flow. It is requested by people for collective worship, baptisms and funerals.Choirs love the song.

I WILL NEVER LEAVE YOU: First presented in 2003 in concerts by Valerie Mero-Smith. It is on her recording "IN THE QUIET HOURS". 
                 
The back cover message is provided by Max Lucado 

 from his book Travelling Light

I love this song. It has so much heart and is a magnificent solo, reminiscent  of Carmen's great song  "Don't want to be Alone any more.."recently revived by Celine Dione

THE INVITATION: A worship song….meditation… Matthew 11: 28

  "Come to me….all who are weary.." A great solo for  someone who sings with a personable "jazz" flair in their voice. The 4 part harmony arrangement by Samuel Andreyev is lush and beautiful.
The music cover features a beautiful painting

The back cover features a message from the

Choirs will love this beautiful song and as well it is a great song to precede a sermon or to use in a healing service.

 

Be_Not_Afraid.jpg

BE NOT AFRAID: A great Southern Gospel style song..with reflections of Elvis and the Blackwoods. It is based upon Matthew 14: 25-30…Jesus walking on water…Peter walking on water and sinking. I have shared the lyrics with a few  great bible preachers and they express a resounding "amen" that the song captures the essence of the message in scripture. It has drama… and speaks to the broken hearted and those who have lost  their focus. 
The music cover features breathtaking art

The  back cover message is by two Christian writers who circulate Gospel messages around the world through Internet Ministry.

 

Affirmation_Song.jpg

AFFIRMATION SONG: Created nearly 20 years ago, this song focuses upon Jesus and His realization of His oneness with God  John 10:30 It encourages others to follow and to believe that through Him all things are possible if we are OBEDIENT.

Affirmation Song
When God could find no man
He, Himself became a man
That we who are  the sons of men
Might become the sons of God

The cover for this song features art from the works of Terrance McKillip and his beautiful piece "YESHUA" . It is breathtaking in every way. The back cover features another message from the Word for You Today. Here again, this song has been performed as a solo...a meditation piece often used as a prelude to healing. It can be a POWERFUL Gospel Choir piece and I believe the arrangement can follow assessement and discussion. Praise God for this blessing.

WORK IN PROGRESS

 

HE SAW YOU: A new work…now finished except for the cover,is based on a writing by Roy Lessin of DAYSPRING Cards. The writing touched my heart and I then sought permission to use the piece with music. This song will complete a series on HOPE. God willing, everything will come together very soon.
