Making Time (Anthony Moran)

Here are my two takes on Anthony Moran's song, "Taking Time." Thanks for listening and commenting.
 

Making Time

 

D/F#   D        D/F#    D       G              G/B   

Making time for those I love is really hard to do.                                                                                        

      G/B   G/D     D/F#   D        D/F#   G         A7

There isn’t time to do the things I know I should be doing.                                                                                         

  D/F#    D       D/F#     D         G          G/B   

I see the sadness in their eyes when I am never there.                                                                                                

  G/B    G/D        D/F#   D      G       A7        D

I feel I might lose everything if I don’t change my ways...

On Eagle's Wings - Michael Joncas (Easter Egg Hunt edition)



My presentation of a popular hymn sung at Masses, weddings and funerals. This recording was made at the funeral of Joseph Schaefer on 4/13/2018 at St. Matthew's Church. The video track is my grandkids at an Easter Egg Hunt in the woods.

On Eagle's Wings

by Michael Joncas

1. You who dwell in the shelter of the Lord
Who abide in His shadow for life
Say to the Lord
"My refuge, my rock in whom I...

Let's Begin

1st Verse:
I try not to judge
But still cry when I love...
Even when it hurts I know GOD cares
For better or worse I try and give you my soul laid bare...
In these words and rhymes
In order for us to change the world it's gotta take time...
Because we are men and women only
I try and use my pen to love and defend not so lonely...
When GOD is with us
Tears become less than dust
With fears we can adjust...
  

Queen of Heaven, Rejoice - Regina Coeli (Moran)

A new collaboration of Anthony Moran and Richard Schletty. Tony's daughter, Tara Moran (a Broadway stage singer), will sing the song soon, replacing my voice in this demo. Please listen to more "Songs of Faith for Liturgies and Devotions" sung by Tara. Please visit www.catholicliturgyinsong.org – or use the insong.org shortcut.

Which arrangement do you like – v5, v6 or v7? Please comment below.

We will be adding a chorus of voices singing the Alleluias.

"Queen of Heaven, Rejoice - Regina Coeli" is recited during the Easter season instead of the "Angelus."

Psalm 51 - Create in Me (Guimont 2010)



https://youtu.be/tGjA6JtrByM

Refrain: Create in me, create in me a clean heart, O God.

Have mercy on me, O God,

     according to your merciful love;
according to your great compassion,

Wash me completely from...  Read Full Story >>>

Hopeful

1st Verse:
The life I chose didn't start well
Like a dying rose I was dark but then the hell...
In my life was too much to handle
In such a way I had to dismantle...
Then pick up the pieces
The whole time I got a lift up from Jesus
The ultimate gift that was given for a reason...
A second chance
We are all blessed in advance... 

Stronger Together (new track 2018)

1st Verse:
The older I get
The less shoulders get wet...
Because I've cried a lifetime
I used to hide at night time...
Until I found GOD and I tried harder
I reach for the sky but I don't want to die a Martyr...
I just want to share some words
I just want to care in this world...
My heart spills through my pen
So this art won't kill what's in my head...
I have had demons in the past and they still linger 
Trying to open my scars but these fingers...
Make the sign of the cross
Take some wine cos I'm not lost...
