Snow Off a Collie's Back, by DianaDee Osborne

SNOW OFF A COLLIE'S BACK

Album:  Amazing Love 'n' LULLABIES
Song location  http://dianadeeosbornesongs.com/2009---2011-Song-List.php
Song Story:  THE  MUSIC.  The initial piano arpeggios were fun to develop to imitate
falling snow and rain. The initial concept came from one of my favorite verses, Exodus 3:14,
where God identifies Who He is by saying, simply:  “I AM  WHO  I AM.” That required short, simple music phrases to match the matter-of-fact "I AM" Names of God.

Song Story:  THE LYRICS:  My collie Jacob is also featured in GREAT DANE FAITH.... and he inspired this song.  Jacob and I went hiking in a driving powdery snow.  It was so cool (literally:) when I got home and could just brush the snow powder right off his back.... no smelly dog fur.  I was studying God's Names as revealed in the Bible during the time of the snowfall...
      but I don't know how I made the connection to create this cool song except the one, the usual  answer:  God helped me see the parable and develop the song that makes His names easy-to-remember.   Dedicated to God in ALL His names 3 April  2009
LYRICS:
 
 ... a LULLABY  from God to  YOU:
1
Like water off a white duck's back,
Like cold rain off a big buck's rack,
Like dry snow off a collie's back,
     Let your problems roll off you, onto Me.
Like water off a mallard's back,
Like cold rain off an elk's big rack,
Like dry snow off a collie's back,
     Let your problems roll off you, onto Me, your God:
Let your burdens roll of You onto Me.
I yearn to help you.  Here's Who I am:

CHORUS 1

I   AM  CREATOR  of all you see.          [Isaiah 40:28, Genesis 1,  Isaiah 42]
I   AM  PROVIDER  of all you need.     [Phil. 4:19Psalm 78:20Luke 12:27-31]
I   AM  PROTECTOR,  your SHIELD,  your PEACE.  [Psalm 28:7, 18:2,30 Isaiah 9:6]
I   AM  your SHEPHERD  who guards My sheep.
         [Isaiah 40:11 Ezekiel 34:12,23,   [Matthew 9:36,   John 10:11-16]
I   AM  your God who  gives VICTORY.    [1 Corinthians 15:57]
I   AM  both FATHER  and KING OF KINGS,    [John 5:188:42; 1 Timothy 6:13-16]
Almighty GOD – yet --  your loving DAD.
              [ZEPHANIAH 3: 14-17 … we all may choose to be God's people –
Your lack of trust makes   Me feel so sad.     
Bring Me your grief.   I'll brush it from your heart,   
                     --Romans 11 (a study guide helps:) ]
like dry snow off   a collie's back.
Seek Me and You'll find  all that you lack:
God's Truth,  Joy Love.

Like water off a mallard's  back,
Like cold rain off an elk's  big rack,
Like dry snow off a collie's back,
Let your problems roll off you, onto Me,  My child!
Like water off a mallard's back,
Like cold rain off an elk's big rack,
Like dry snow off a collie's back,
Let all your tears roll off you, onto Me,  your God:
Let all your  fears  roll off  You,  onto Me.
I yearn to help you.  Here's Who I am:

CHORUS 2

I   AM  your BREAD OF LIFE,  HOPE, and JOY you lack.  [John 6:35 51, Romans 8:24]
I   AM  your FORTRESS in times of strife.    [Psalm 18:2,   31:3,   91:2144:2]
I   AM your DOOR to eternal life.    [John 10:9,   John 14:6]
Almighty God – yet --  your loving dad. [Genesis 17:1, Job 3334,
Your lack of trust makes   Me feel so sad.  [John 16:271 John 4]
Bring Me your grief.   I'll brush it from your heart,

Seek Me and You'll find  all that you lack:   God's Truth,  Joy Love.
