Fingerstyle Christian Folk music - scripture based - theologically sound.
This CD – Here I Am - like the debut CD Peace - continues the musical journey through Christ's life beginning with the birth of Jesus (Joseph and Mary). Baptism and Affirmation is a song dedicated to Taylor O'Keefe in commemoration of her baptism followed by a Evening Prayer a lullaby asking for a safe nights journey to dawns new day. Patient Love is based on 1 Corinthians 13 and love's theme in marriage. Here I Am is actually the first piece that I wrote to provide music for the Communion Service but at the same time recognition of my surrender to Christ. Open Your Heart is a cry to reach out to God and accept His love and let Him into your life. Jerusalem begins the journey to the cross with the entry into the Holy City as foretold by the prophets, the inevitable Betrayal by Judas Iscariot and the Trial. Abba! Father is what I call a ‘never ending song’. It has many verses to cover several occasions. I pared the song down to four verses and two Bridges. These sets of verses quickly takes from the birth of Jesus,, Christ’s baptism, His cry at Gethsemane and the suffering and death on the cross. Lord We Are Waiting is a song of our yearning for Christ’s return to us and to Thomas who doubts until the very end.
