Beyond understanding
Without mortal bounds
A calm for the soul
A symphony without sound

A glimpse of eternity
A universe of mind
A choir for the deaf
Sunlight for the blind

An uncommon yearning
This unyielding desire
To know where I belong
ButÖ itís a subtle fire

A solace of spirit
A meaningful life
A service of praise
Is no sacrifice

An assurance of purpose
A time of release
What I find in a prayer
A shared silent peace

An uncommon yearning
This unyielding desire
To know where I belong
ButÖ itís a subtle fire...

I hear ya'. A nice song to sing in church.

There is no feeling better than what you can get from praying, IMO.

Hi Japov,
Well written a performed. And yes, a "Joyful Noise" is something this world needs a lot more during these times. I writes lots of different kinds of Christian music. My favorites are shake the rafters gospel and praise and worship but I write tons of Christian country, and once in a while a contemporary country too. You might like this one:

JAPOV,

I really dig these gritty vocals with the music vibe you have going on. I could see David Bowie doing this song. I would guess that production is over, but I thought it might be cool to have a last tag line reference "what I find in prayer" which would empower that theme.

Great song, great production, great performance!

"Cool in the shadow of the cross..." Very Nice!

When the fires of hell seem to surround you
And all youíre reasons leave you at a loss
A world of hate and greed may seem to bind you
But itís cool in the shadow of the cross
Yes, itís cool in the shadow of the cross.... smile

I'm with Steady Eddie on this one, it has tremendous David Bowie vibe to it. Just loved that choir for the deaf and sunlight for the blind lines. Congrats.

Good to see you posting Japov. I think your voice sounds like Bowie if he was an American . the track sounds like u2, so somewhere in there I guess.

Might be a better melody to stack on top of that cool track, but I dig it.

Hi Japov,
Nice to meet up with you again over the years and web. Yeah! agree sounds a little Bowie. Glad you're still keepin' on, keepin' on as so am I. Hopefully, my songwriting has improved over the years. Recently did a collab with Deej which he posted on JPF and I saw you had commented there. Belladonna
