Song Story:  THE  MUSIC STORY of this gift from God
             is so long that I've put it at the END of this blog :)   
Dedicated to Protector LORD God, 24 February 2013


Remember the Word to Your servant upon
which You, God, have caused me to have hope. This is
my comfort in troubles. For Your Word, Lord gives me
Life. The proud mock me so much, and yet
I won't turn from Your Law, O God. And I
remember Your judgments   You gave us so long ago.
God's Law is Comfort. Psalm one-hundred-Nineteen, 49 to 56.
God remembers His Promise!

Disgust has taken hold of me LORD, because
wicked people have forsaken God's Law...
God's Statutes are my songs anywhere I have
traveled. O LORD, I remember Your Name
all DAY.   And I remember Your Name
in the night.  
O my LORD -- I keep Your Law, it's now mine.
God's Law is Comfort. Psalm one-hundred-Nineteen, 49 to 56.
God remembers His Promise!


Song Story: 
1.   I was checking out my “untitled” folder... 
was interested in the studio file I'd done a few weeks earlier called 
   untitled Dm Rag             <<  D Minor Ragtime beat >>
with my piano on top of a canned drum loop.
2.   Started playing with the song.
3.   Completed the drums and that bass line I really like.
4.   Corrected jazz timing for the piano;  then
5.   added sax track to guide me when I would be recording the 
           vocals at the studio, since the melody is a bit tricky.
Only after I finished the MUSIC tracks 
did I pull out my Bible and ask God, OK, what should I do with this? 
Since I had been working on the Psalm 119 series, 1-1/2 years after I first had the concept to do this (while in a summer-long Bible Study on this single Psalm).... 
I opened my Bible to Psalm 119. It fell to Zayin.

The words fit the jazz meter of the already-created music.  
My Hebrew instructor / Shabbat fellowship leader Rick Blankenship had 
come to the studio to record the entire Hebrew alphabet,
 since I knew I'd never pronounce the letters right! 
As a last-minute thought which I am sure the Holy Spirit provided, 
         I asked Rick to also provide the meaning for each Hebrew Letter.
On the same studio night, the producer recorded and 
did his audio improvements to a track where I read 
the entire Psalm 119 straight through.

           It's a REALLY weird,  HARSH  chord. 
When I had first recorded that chord, it was a MISTAKE----- 
BUT  I liked its weirdness, so I just kept the piano track unchanged. 
     In fact, I EMPHASIZED the mistake by making it the melody note! 
And I did NOT plan this location for the scripture to land on.... a harsh chord for “indignation.” I just dropped in the scripture track and it landed there. 

This is GOD'S planning... 
and it has happened a number of times, as earlier stories tell.

And so for this song, I created a project that cut out the pieces for the Zayin scripture reading and Rick's alphabet reading. And thus God has guided yet another of His songs of Psalms for His people that puts HIS Words to music. This is God's project that I am honored to develop under the Holy Spirit's guidance and empowering. -ddo
