ALBUM: Amazing Psalms 'n' Promises
Song location: http://DianaDeeOsborneSongs.com/NEW-Songs.php
Song Story: THE MUSIC:
One of my 2010 songs was just too slow. Funeral dirge slow.
I knew from several years earlier that voices are recorded on WAV files that did not immediately change tempo like instrument MIDI tracks do. Back then I had to re-sing some songs for a faster tempo. So I just resigned myself to having to re-sing the song at a much faster tempo.
So I took my original home studio project for “Grounded for Life,” added background textures and more bass and violin, and upped the tempo by about 30 beats per minute. (That is a MAJOR speed increase!) I had recorded “Grounded” at Studio 2, so I took my new tracks there, ready to sing. There I learned something:
In the past 3 years, the professional recording programs had significantly improved. I told Claxton the new tempo, he pushed one button, and absolutely every track immediately was great.
BUT -- HAVING DONE “ALL THIS WORK -- a full day..... I grabbed my Bible, prayed for wisdom, flipped into Psalms, and this Psalm was the first one I looked at. And it easily fits the music. I deleted the melody note line for “Grounded”, added a new melody, changed piano to a harpsichord sound, changed some texture and bass notes.... and God showed once again His great answers to prayer!
Another new song within a day.... from The LORD who guided David's prayer words for US in Psalms.
Dedicated to LORD God, 30 September 2012
I said I shall guard all my ways lest I sin with my tongue.
I shall restrain my mouth as if my mouth were muzzled, LORD. When
wicked people are before me, I SHALL HOLD MY TONGUE.
Psalm 39, Verse 1.
I held my peace even from good, and sorrow stirred in me. My
heart was hot, and fire burned while I thought in my mind. And
then I prayed aloud to God, REMIND ME HOW BRIEF Life is.
Psalm 39, Verses 2 and 3.
LORD, make me know my end, know my frail life shall end.
My age is nothing to you. You are God, We are vapor.
Humans walk as a shadow. We do useless things for wealth,
busy ourselves doing things that don't matter to You, our LORD God.
Psalm 39, verses 4 through six.
But I shall Wait on God. All hope is in You, LORD.
Deliver me from sins. I truly repent of them.
Do not let others mock me for waiting on You silently.
Remove punishment I deserve,
but I hold my tongue, don't complain at God.
Psalm 39, verses 7 through 12.
God's SUPPORTING WORDS:“LORD, remind me how brief my time on earth will be. Remind me that my days are numbered— how fleeting my life is. ...And so, Lord, where do I put my hope?
My only hope is in you.” --Psalm 39: 4 and 7 New KJV
