My wife and I tried out a new church yesterday and the teaching was outstanding. It gave me the inspiration for this tune based on the sermon, "Don't Fear Tomorrow."

Jesus Prays
© 2017 Steven M. Biederman

https://soundcloud.com/user-586765351/jesus-prays

V1
Twelve men went out on the water
The lake was placid and calm
Experienced men; fishermen
When the lake brewed up a storm
They'd seen Jesus head for the mountain
He had stayed behind to pray
With the the tempest now upon them
They wondered about their fate

V2
The waves beat up against them
The boat almost capsized
Saw a ghost walk on the water
Right before their eyes
The men were afraid as you could imagine
“Take courage! It is I.”
Said the voice of the ghost, I am Jesus
Peter felt his fear subside

[Chorus
Peter steps from the boat, steps out on faith
But sinks as his faith goes astray
A hand reaches down to save him
As Jesus prays

v3
She looked tired and old from the cancer
And they knew it wouldn't be long
He didn't know how he'd go on without her
As the stereo played their song
It had been 50 years of laughter and tears
It had been one heck of a ride
But it was at the end when the voice came to him
And he felt his fear subside

[Chorus]
And when she finally leaves him
When all hope has faded away
A hand reaches down to save him
As Jesus prays

[Bridge]
We all go through storms, unexpected or long
How could a loving God allow such suffering
But we're not the only ones

He was led as a lamb to the slaughter
As a lamb before it's shearers is quiet
Then they beat him with scorn, made a crown of thorns
Pressed it on his forehead tight
They said he was the messiah
But later said "He's a fraud."
Crucified between two criminals
The innocent lamb of God

Just before He gave up his spirit
Three days before he rose from the grave
Father please forgive them
Jesus prays

Now the moral of this story
What this song is trying to say
Is when we're at our darkest hour
Jesus prays

[Tag]
Je...sus...Prays

A good Gospel tune Lil Stevie. It's been a while since I heard a good inspirational song. Glad I got to hear it, nice work man.

Hey Stevie,

Yeah, that's got a nice tone and texture, and message.

Great storytelling in a classic mode. The lyrics cleverly set themselves up for the hook. That middle8/bridge is awesome, I was wondering how you'd bring it back, but you did so real smoothly. smile

A really listenable gospel song without the "preachy" thing.

cheers, niteshift

PS - Ya got your voice back. smile

Thanks, Nite. I try not to sound preachy, just to tell a story. Thomas Aquinas said "Preach the Gospel constantly...When necessary, use words." I try to live by that axiom in my life.

And yeah, the voice is back just in time. I'm part of a concert at a Christian night club this Saturday night.
