 Springtime in Glory

Here is a song I love. The Chuck Wagon Gang used to sing this song and it can still be found on YouTube.

SPRINGTIME IN GLORY

There is a happy land of sunshine I know,
Free from all sorrow, pain and care, (From pain and care,)
The blessed land where the chilly winds of death never blow
It is Spring time forever there.

Springtime in Glory
Always Springtime in Glory
Where the flowers are blooming rich and rare (so rich and rare)
Where the happy angels are singing,
Bells of Glory are ringing,
It is Springtime forever there.

Useful and happy, none will ever grow old
Out in that lovely land so fair.
So bright and fair.
The land where there is no suffering from hunger or cold.
It is Springtime forever there.

Springtime in Glory
Always Springtime in Glory
Where the flowers are blooming rich and rare (so rich and rare).
Where the happy angels are singing,
Bells of Glory are ringing,
It is Springtime forever there.

There is no weeping in that home of the soul
No death to bring us to despair (to bring despair)
The land where all will be glory while the ages shall roll.
It is Springtime forever there.

Springtime in Glory,
Always Springtime in Glory,
Where the flowers are blooming rich and rare (so rich and rare).
Where the happy angels are singing,
Bells of Glory are ringing,
It is Springtime forever there
It's always Springtime.

 Re: Springtime in Glory

Here is a thought of a slightly different note. The airwaves daily blast our ears with "love songs", but have any of you ever stopped to think, "are these realy "love songs"? When have you last (if ever) heard a love song played on the radio written about a dear spouse of many years? After hearing one of these typical songs one day I prayed to the Lord, requesting Him to enable me to write a song for my precious wife which tells the truth about married life and true love. There is quite some story about how my prayer was answered-He actually gave me two songs- but I will share one of them now.

He Gave To Me a Song

Folks sing of love that leaves a bleeding heart
With shattered dreams and memories of pain.
Together now-tomorrow but to part,
And search the world in quest of love again.
But God be praised! He gave to me a song,
Of one whose heart is pure and good and true!
Though storms have raged and years have sped along,
Our love remains, still strong and fresh and new!

Those spark'ling eyes that beamed their charms on mine,
And captive held my heart beneath their gaze,
Still hold their pow'r and shed a ray, Divine,
Upon my heart to gladden all my days.
They use a language not by words expressed,
Which none can speak to me but they, alone;
They bid me in her deepest love to rest,
And make her throbbing bosom's warmth my own.

That lov'ly Princess of my wedding day-
I drank her beauty and was satisfied.
Not time or age can steal the joy away,
To feast my eyes upon my pretty bride.
Once God with artful skill and tenderness
Wrought her dear face and form with me in mind,
That I might cherish her and ever bless
Her with adoring eyes and favour, kind.

Her laughter is a joyous melody;
Her gentle words are Heaven's holy balm;
Her soft caress is as God's touch on me,
To soothe my weary spirit into calm.
The God I love and worship day by day
Is her God too-her Lord, her life, her all-
So hand in hand with Him we walk the way,
And cling to Him whatever may befall.

'Tis God alone Who brought to us this gift.
Nought but salvation, free, can it excell.
And so to Him my voice in praise I lift,
As friends to you this story thus I tell.
Come, raise your hands with me to bless the Lord!
And never let your heart's affection move,
From that dear one His mercy did afford,
For oh - how good it is to be in love!

 RE: He Gave To Me a Song

Beekpr,

This is absolutely beautiful! It is so profound it makes one choke up. It also demonstrates the profound love God gives a couple who work to serve him - something the world hankers for but finds ever elusive because they are looking for it at all the wrong places.

Now would you mind sharing the other poem?

 Re: would you mind sharing...

Ginnyrose, here is the other song. It loses some of its punch when I don't sing it beause the melody and drama are part of it, but here it is. I use the sheep and bee imagery because of my occupation. The strange title is because the music reminded me somewhat of a chant when I listened to the midi file after I had written it down on the computer - it is built on a musical theme which continually varies to complement the lyric.

The Lover's Chant

As are the green leaves to the tree;
To butterflies, their flight so free;
As perfume to the blooming rose;
Its subtle magic to my nose;
As starlight to the midnight sky;
As trilling songs to birds that fly;
As morning's hues are to the night;
To winter scenes, snow's spark'ling white;
Unbridled joy to lambs that leap;
As scented hay to hungry sheep;
As golden honey to the bee-
So is your love, dear one, to me!
You are my Spice! You are my Sweet!
Y o u m a k e t h i s d r y o l d g u y-complete!
You bring sweet music to my soul;
When joined to you in love I'm whole!
'Tis God Who wrought this mystery;
'Tis He Who planned for you and me-
And so His Name we glorify,
And walk together 'till we die!

coda
Fair Lady, if I've gained your grace,
Then let me hold you in embrace!

 Re: Springtime in Glory

IF I STAND
by Rich Mullins

http://tinyurl.com/ifistand

VERSE 1:

There's more that rises in the morning
Than the sun
And more that shines in the night
Than just the moon
It's more than just this fire here
That keeps me warm
In a shelter that is larger
Than this room

And there's a loyalty that's deeper
Than mere sentiments
And a music higher than the songs
That I can sing
The stuff of Earth competes
For the allegiance
I owe only to the giver
Of all good things

CHORUS:

So if I stand
Let me stand on the promise
That you will pull me through
And if I can't,
Let me fall on the grace
That first brought me to You

And if I sing
Let me sing for the joy
That has born in me these songs
And if I weep
Let it be as a man
Who is longing for his home

VERSE 2:

There's more that dances on the prairies
Than the wind
More that pulses in the ocean
Than the tide
There's a love that is fiercer
Than the love between friends
More gentle than a mother's
When her baby's at her side

And there's a loyalty that's deeper
Than mere sentiments
And a music higher than the songs
That I can sing
The stuff of Earth competes
For the allegiance
I owe only to the Giver
Of all good things

CHORUS(2x)

So if I stand
Let me stand on the promise
That you will pull me through
And if I can't,
Let me fall on the grace
That first brought me to You

And if I sing
Let me sing for the joy
That has born in me these songs
And if I weep
Let it be as a man
Who is longing for his home

And if I weep
Let it be as a man
Who is longing for his home

This song has always made me cry...but its good tears cause it makes me think so much of JESUS and HIS promises to us knowing no matter how dark the skies get HE will never fail me!!

Thank you so much Chris for reminding me that JESUS does use music to speak to our hearts at times.

God bless

 Re:

Hi MaryJane,

I agree. Rich Mullins had some very wonderful songs that have touched my heart at just the right moment. The same is true of some others (but, sadly, not nearly as often with much of today's music).

Keith Green is also one of my favorite musicians. I can't count the times that I have been encouraged, strengthened or simply drawn to worship by some of his songs.

Here is a great song that echoes my own testimony:

YOUR LOVE BROKE THROUGH
by Keith Green

http://tinyurl.com/lovebrokethrough

Like a foolish dreamer
trying to build a highway to the sky
All my hopes
would come tumbling down
And I never knew just why
Until today,
when you pulled away the clouds
That hung like curtains on my eyes
Well I've been blind
All these wasted years
And I thought I was so wise
But then you took me by surprise

Like waking up
from the longest dream,
How real it seemed!
Until your love broke through
I've been lost
in a fantasy,
that blinded me
Until your love broke through

All my life I've been searching
for that crazy missing part
And with one touch,
you just rolled away
The stone that held my heart
And now I see
that the answer was as easy
As just asking you in
And I am so sure
I could never doubt
Your gentle touch again
It's like the power of the wind!

Like waking up
from the longest dream,
How real it seemed!
Until your love broke through!
I've been lost in a fantasy
that blinded me
Until your love broke through!

Like waking up
from the longest dream,
How real it seemed!
Until your love broke through!
Until your love broke through!

 Re:

RUSHING WIND
by Keith Green

http://tinyurl.com/rushingwindbykeithgreen

Rushing wind,
Blow through this temple,
Blowing out the dust within;
Come and breathe your breath upon me:
I've been born again.

Holy Spirit, I surrender;
Take me where you want to go.
Plant me by your living water,
Plant me deep so I can grow.

Jesus, you’re the One
who sets my spirit free;
Use me, Lord; and glorify
Your Holy Name through me.

Separate me from this world, Lord;
Sanctify my life for you.
Daily change me to your image,
Help me bear good fruit.

Every day you're drawing closer;
Trials come to test my faith.
But when all is said and done, Lord,
I know it's been worth the wait.

Jesus, you’re the one who set my spirit free;
Use me, Lord; Glorify
Your Holy Name through me.

Rushing wind,
Blow through this temple,
Blowing out the dust within;
Come and breathe you breath upon me,
For I've been born again.

 Re:

PLEDGE MY HEAD TO HEAVEN
by Keith Green

http://tinyurl.com/pledgemyheadbykeithgreen

I pledge my head to Heaven for the Gospel,
And I ask no man on Earth to fill my needs.
Like the sparrow up above,
I am enveloped in His love,
And I trust Him like those little ones He feeds.

Well, I pledge my wife to Heaven for the Gospel,
Though our love each passing day just seems to grow.
As I told her when we wed,
I'd surely rather be found dead,
Than to love her more than the one who saved my soul.

I'm your child,
and I want to be in your family forever.
I'm your child,
and I'm going to follow you,
No matter whatever the cost,
I'm gonna count all things lost.

Well I pledge my son to Heaven for the Gospel.
Though he's kicked and beaten, ridiculed and scorned.
I will teach him to rejoice,
and lift a thankful, praising voice,
And to be like Him who bore the nails and crown of thorns.

I'm your child,
and I want to be in your family forever.
I'm your child,
and I'm going to follow you,
No matter whatever the cost,
I'm gonna count all things lost.

Well I've had the chance
to gain the world, and to live just like a king,
But without your love, it doesn't mean a thing.

Oh no matter whatever the cost,
I'm gonna count all things lost,
Oh no matter whatever the cost,
I'm gonna count all things lost.

Well I pledge my son,
I pledge my wife,
I pledge my head to heaven,
for the Gospel.

 Re:

ANCIENT PROPHECY

Behold the ancient scripture brought forth a prophecy
Revealed in the testament of old for all mankind to see

The prophet Isaiah foretold long ago
The coming of a man who would heal their land

He assumed a servents nature written in Isaiah 53
He grew in wisdom and stature
Healed many and set them free

Torment and pain gripped the land
Desperation of release grew strong
The prophet saw the time was near
Impending deliverance for which they longed

The prophet Isaiah foretold long ago
Bloodied crucifixion would bring forth redemption

Behold the prophecy revealed before you
Testifies of blood spilt from butchered arteries
Mangled beyond human likeness
Shredded meat hanging from his skeletal cage
This Blood spraying from a mass of twisted flesh
Brings forth redemption to partake you must receive
Do it now before you die or pay the price
Make a step toward God or be destroyed

Surely He hath borne our griefs, weakness and distress
And carried our sorrows and pain
Yet we ignorantly considered Him stricken
Smitten by God and afflicted
But He was wounded for our transgressions
He was bruised for our guilt and iniquities
The chastisement needed to obtain peace and well-being
For us was upon Him and with the lashings and torment
That butchered Him we are healed and made complete

He assumed a servants nature written in Isaiah 53
He grew in wisdom and stature
Healed many and set them free

Ancient writings formed on parchment conceived
Beyond the realm of time
Fulfillment yet to be achieved time
Unfolds to reveal completion

The prophet Isaiah foretold long ago
Blood justification
Spiritual completion
This Blood spraying from a mass of twisted flesh
Brings forth redemption to partake you must receive
Do it now before you die or pay the price
Make a step toward God or be destroyed

based on Isaiah 53:4-5
