It is very interesting to write song lyrics about sainthood and his/her work. It is a big topic.

Thanks for the co-writing invitation. I'll try to get to this soon. God bless.

Hi Richard: Will you co-write the song with me and write lead sheet for the song. I really like this song to have a lead sheet for the song lyric, so that we can sing it at the associate members meeting.

Well, really great vocals and a very able audio tech/mixer.  This Top Catholic Songs site was run by others from 2007 to late 2013. The early emphasis was promoting songs written by a select group of performing artists – all members of the Catholic Association of Music (founded by John Michael Talbot). I took over TCS in January of 2014, cleaned up the spam and outdated Drupal modules, and expanded the mission of the site to embrace the entire range of Catholic music old to new – simple...

Thanks again, Richard, for your encouragement. They are my vocals (albeit a good few years back) in an audio-savvy friends bedroom! How have I only discovered this site recently? What a great idea to share music and experience of faith! Hope you’re well and singing on!  God bless, Steve (Surrey, UK).

The whole video was really really great Richard. When I find some time I would like to do some more writing. At my local library there is a ton of books on how to write songs. I would like to step outside the hip hop structure and teach myself other ways to write different genres which I may have mentioned to you a while ago. Hope you are doing well. All the best. Alex.

Alex: And all the best to you and your wife. Thanks for telling me about your listening session after mass. You inspired me – we are both smiling. Drop back in when you get some time and inclination. I'll leave the pot of coffee on.

Steve, this is absolutely stunning as far as being "in and with Christ" and top drawer as far as production. Is that  you singing? I am in awe of your group's ability to create beautiful, inspiring music.

What a great idea to have a songwriters forum such as the MAS.  Haven’t seen any similar opportunities here in the UK.  You sing with a lot of passion and conviction, Richard, and I went to listen for a couple of minutes before realising I was watching the YouTube clips for over half an hour!  Very well done indeed.  ‘Every blessing.

Aurora, thank you for shedding more light on this song. If you can find all the lyrics, would you be so kind as to post them here?

Hello!  I graduated from Poveda Learning Centre (class of 1980), originally called Institucion Teresiana in Manila Philippines. We had annual Marian song competitions and I am told this version, which Povedans call "As the Rain Rushes Down" was composed by an earlier class.  I think it has one verse as Maria sings it.

Hi Richard,                     Yesterday when my wife and I got back from church I checked in on this site for the first time in quite a while and saw the link you posted. We watched it together and it was a great line up of tracks and it was pretty cool to see our two at the end. Well done and thanks for using a couple of ours. Hope you have been well and I plan to come back to this site a bit more often, just life has been messy lately....

Hi, Alex. Good to hear from you. Did you see the YouTube of my half-hour show which includes two of our song collaborations? https://www.topcatholicsongs.com/songcasters-episode-13-schletty

This song is also an inspiration from being an associate member of Sisters of Providence with the mission of Blessed Gamelin Emilly "Table of the King." Pictures of Blessed Gamelin Emilly at Portland Providence Health & Services, Portland, OR, USA.

Lately, I have to take my daddy to the Providence hospital for medical reasons.  They always take pulse of his heart beat for each visit.  I realize that it is very important that we all start with heart beat.

I don't have melogy for this song yet. I try to write the song lyric with 8 counts and 4 beats. And also the chorus repeats 2 times or 4 times. It is difficult to write 8 words per line for 8 counts, because English is my second languages.   Maybe Richard can co-write the song for better lyric of the song.

I am glad you saw this post with our song "Our World So Beautiful." I was hoping you would. You have inspired several good songs and I thank you for that. Let's keep collaborating!

Dan, thanks for sharing your song about the sanctity of life from the moment of conception. We must all respeact human heart beats – even the tiniest ones!

Steve, welcome to our TCS community. I only have to listen to this song video to know that you and your group have much to bring to the table! Very fine songwriting, recording and imagery. A full spectrum of sound and very earnest song-praying. I sure am looking forward to additional songs – both for the Mass and for the masses (as inspirational faith songs). Bravo. Good to see that this one has the bishop's approval. Is sheet music available for Table of the Lord?

Absolutely! Thanks again. Audra

Yes, I embedded the player. I saw that your permissions at SoundCloud allowed me to do that. I think it helps to give site visitors immediate access to the music – otherwise they might move on to the next article! They can always click your links for more info. I hope that's OK with you. - Richard

Thank you for the positive feedback Richard, I will certainly pass it on to the rest of the group.  Was it you who also went ahead and embedded the player?  If so, Thank You!  God Bless.  Please keep up your good work in music. Audra ​COLOR
