Stormy, 1967

Stormy, by Dennis Yost and the Classics IV, 1967

The band, founded by Dennis Yost, is known mainly for the hits "Spooky," "Stormy," and "Traces," released 1967 to 1969, which have become cover standards. I love these songs, truly classics from the sixties.

Stormy weather for a lot of people around the world.

Pray for Peace in Ukraine!

Catholic Christian Music with John Bauer @ www.johnbauer.com

Enjoy the Voice of Comfort with John Bauer of Bethlehem, Pa. at www.johnbauer.com

My life in sharing Catholic Christian Music has been one of Simplicity and Sincerity.  Recently I compiled nearly 58 songs/hymns that I recorded over the last 20+ years which are now available exclusively thru my website. While still sharing the Gift of Music at select Independent, Assisted Living, and Alzheimer's Resident homes, here in our Lehigh Valley area and beyond, there remains in my heart a most fond memory of visiting the St. Joseph-in-the-Hills Retreat Home in Malvern, Pa., as their guest soloist for their Saturday evening programming...
 

A Promised Land

ERETZ YISRAEL Sound and music of the Holy Land.

A song about the Holy Land, a bit of history, and a bit of His word.
And yes, conflict and struggle is a way of life in the region.
Peace, and going to the Promise Land, our journey's destination.

Pray for peace in our world!

*********************************
The Promised Land, Words and Music by Rene A
Oh… Eretz Yisrael
From Dan to Beersheba
A covenant to Abraham’s descendants
The Promised Land

Destiny, hope, and redemption
The struggle to escape slavery and darkness
For King to shout “I’ve Been to the Mountaintop”
Give glory to His coming

Holy land
Promise land
Conflict and peace, a journey of life.

No Jew nor Gentile
Neither slave nor free
Neither male nor female
For you are all one in Christ

Winnie the Pooh

Winnie the Pooh

I am releasing this song my lovely daughter beautifully sang, as an offering for peace and safety of Ukrainian people all around the world.  

I can still remember her singing this same song when she was a little girl, as she would hear me and my wife sing this tune together.
Hope we can turn back time and just enjoy the good times.

Mother of God, O Holy Mary

Inspired by our trip to the Holy Land, 13FEB to 24FEB2022, with Father Mel Strazizich of St Mary Anacortes WA and Father Thomas Tran of St. Michaels Olympia WA.

We are so blessed to have visited Israel and the Holy Land, and all of its beauty and grandeur and history, all to ourselves. We were the first Holy Land pilgrims after 2 years of close-down due to the pandemic.

This hymn is dedicated to the Ukrainian people and for peace in our world.

Holy Mary Mother of God, Pray for Us!!!

All My Life, 1979

All My Life is from the album Silent Letter, the eighth studio album by American folk rock duo America, released by Capitol Records in June 1979.

America is one of my favorite band, growing up with this wonderful duo.  I literally grew up with America songs, and would like to dedicate this song to all my co-pilgrims to the Holy Land in Israel.  A once in a lifetime visit to Jesus' land.  We are so fortunate to have visited this beautiful and historic place, and so blessed to have the Holy sites to ourselves as Israel just recently opened their borders to the pildgrims of the world.

Alleluia!!!

What's Behind A Rainbow?
Words by John W. Selleck, Music by Rene A

Down at the beach today
I saw a wonderful sight
A double rainbow in the air
It filled the western sky
Why is it so special
To fill my heart with song
Don't you just love it too
And want to sing along

Chorus
What's behind a rainbow-------}
I wonder do you know
It must be so magical
To cause that heavenly glow
Don't try to explain it
With scientific proofs
I really like the mystery
Maybe you do too

The Irish say a pot of gold
Lies down at either end
But don't go chasing rainbows
You'll get lost my friend
I like to stare in wonder
Moments lost in time
Is it all a part of
Someone's great design Read Full Story >>>

Let Me Be, words and music by Rene A 

Let me be the one who makes you feel brand new, my Love 
Cause its you, only you 
Can make me feel the way that I do 
Your love's so warm and true 

Let me be your sunshine and rain in our Garden of Eden, my Love 
Our dreams will come true 
We can grow and conquer all things 
If you just let me be 

Let me, please be, the one who holds your hand 
Let me, please be, the one who walks with you 

And if we're lucky, we can both grow old together, my Love 
It's you, only you 
Can make me feel the way that I do 
Your love's so warm and true

Shadows Vanished, Darkness Banished



Shadows Vanished, Darkness Banished - Music and Lyrics by Rene A

I'm in the middle of the ocean
Floating, straying like a drift wood
I've got no control of where I'm going
But trust in Him in every age and time

I'm like a stardust in the universe
Shadows and darkness engulf my senses
But He who fashioned and stayed us
To Him all glory and honor belong

Let all things now living
Give thanks and praise, Hosanna in the highest
God our Creator
Pure light before us

In Him shadows have vanished
With Him darkness is banished
Through Him, our Lord Jesus Christ
And the Holy Spirit, and God The Father
