Be Joyful 02:58
Be Joyful By Frances Drost You are the Lord, Master of all Messiah and soon coming King Chosen of God, holy and just And we are the work of Your hands Be joyful oh my soul Be joyful oh my soul And hope thou in the Lord your God And be joyful oh my soul You are the Christ, anointed One Most holy God on high You're the Light of the World, shining through me And You've made me just like You Lord, I'm just like You Shepherd of souls, peace for the world Wonderful Word of Life You're the power of God, Prophet and Priest And You touch the world through me

The Bottom of Grace By Tom Drost and Frances Drost It's a long way to the bottom of grace It's a long fight to the end of faith For our Father has compassion And He knows that we're just men So it's a long way to the bottom of His grace We can serve Him for a lifetime and love Him faithfully Then all at once we find ourselves trapped so easily For a moment we are blinded To some it seems like years But through our loving heavenly Father Grace is always waiting near I have had my times of sorrow I've cried my share of tears 'Cause I've watched the ones I trusted Fail Him through the years In those times my heart is tested And I almost lose my way But in the shadows of the darkness Faith is always standing there So before you judge a brother Before you point a finger Don't forget about His mercy Don't forget about the grace

The Willow 04:24
The Willow By Frances Drost I won't hang my harp upon the willow I'll keep praising You as long as I have breath Though the enemy will try to take the music I won't hang my harp upon the willow The harp is a symbol of music David used to praise His God In times of battle it brought victory In distress it brought song So like David in the days of old I will pick up my harp and sing And I will praise You Lord In spite of every troublesome thing In the midst of trying times When the load seems hard to bear There's temptation to cease to praise Him And hang my harp in despair And the enemy comes to mock me Saying "Play me another song" And I pick up my harp and sing a song of victory And I will cast my cares upon my Savior For He cares for me like no one ever has And I will sing a song of praise unto my Jesus 'Cause I won't hang my harp upon the willow

I Still Believe By Frances Drost Shaken to the core of my being Learning how to trust You once again Fear, despair and doubt strain against my soul But this one thing I'll say in spite of what I feel I still believe, after all that I've been through I still believe and I will trust You even more For Your faithfulness is reaching To the end of all my strength So when all is said and done, I still believe You're the God who promised You'd be with me But sometimes it just seems I'm so alone Even through the pain and times of bitter tears You'll find me on my knees standing firm again I won't compromise by disbelieving Or jeopardize my faith by what I see Rooted in Your Word, planted like a tree Though the strong winds blow, they won't bother me

Bidder on The Heart By Frances Drost How do you measure the worth of a soul? How can you say what it's worth? Man is the viewer of outwardly charm But God sees the depths of the heart How can we measure the worth of a heart? Where are we drawing the line? We're not the Maker, we're not the judge God is the bidder on the heart On a platform of valuables Tell me what would you bring? And who sets the stage for the cost? One bids a high price and one not a cent One doesn't know you exist To some you are valuable To some you are not Some wouldn't care to decide But you can't go living by what others say God is the Maker of your heart

Wrong Thing 03:21
Wrong Thing By Frances Drost Life is too short to do the wrong thing Life will too soon fade away Though His mercy is great and so great is His love Life is too short to do the wrong thing Caught in between of the better or good Wanting to do what is best Too many choices are calling my name And I don't know quite what to do I'll get on my knees and I'll pray with my heart I'm here 'til I know what to do The longer I wait Now the clearer I see Destiny's waiting for me This is a matter of better or best It's not just what's right or what's wrong I have a purpose, Lord You have the plan Now my generation is waiting for me

Personalities By Frances Drost Sanguines love to have parties Cholerics wanna be in charge Melancholies wish life was perfect Phlegmatics just don't care Now all the personalities were made by God And everybody has a place But since I'm the writer of this little song I think melancholies sure are best Sanguines love to tell stories Exaggeration is their gift No matter that the story's not truthful As long as it will make us laugh Cholerics love to be bossy Order everyone around No matter that you're hurting my feelings As long as you are always right Melancholies love to be perfect "Don't do it if it's not done right!" Our standards may be higher than heaven's But someone's gotta show you the way Phlegmatics love to be peaceful You'll never find them rocking the boat And if they ever have any problems They'll never get around to let you know

Free From The Inside Out By Frances Drost Lord I wanna be free from the inside out Put me underneath the spout where the glory comes out Take this troubled soul inside, set it free Lord, I'm gonna press in until You hear my cry Overwhelm me with a dose of Your holy supply I'm so hungry and thirsty and I won't be denied Oh, the devil is as sly as a tricky fox His one desire is to put you in a big old box He wants to steal your family and rob your joy But God has written in His book, the Holy Word There's no other name above Christ my Lord So old mister devil has got to flee when I speak that name Our Father He has a burning desire To fill you up with the power of His holy fire Set you free from all of Satan's evil plans So bring your bondage to the Lord at the foot of the cross Turn your back on all the lies you have bought And the victory is yours in Jesus' name So rise and be free Don't you wanna be free from the inside out He'll put you underneath the spout Where the glory comes out Take your troubled soul inside and set you free But you gotta press in 'til He hears your cry Overwhelms you with a dose of His holy supply You gotta be hungry and thirsty and you won't be denied

A Psalm of The Free One By Frances Drost You have heard my cries in the night You have seen my tears in the day In the darkest of season You are my light And you, Oh Lord, are mine And I will praise You with all of my heart And I will love You with all of my might For You are my God and my Friend And You have heard my prayer Though I walk through the valley of death I know that I will bloom again In the desert places You are my joy And I am Yours, oh Lord And You will guide me with all of Your heart And You will love me with all of Your might For I am Your child and Your friend And You have heard my prayer

He Can! 03:42
He Can! By Frances Drost Rivers of water are flowing through me Healing the wounded and setting them free There is a mystery in you and in me People held captive are now walking free He can take a sinner make him righteous He can take a sinner set him free (repeat) Miracles happen both inside and out Sin is forgiven and health is restored There is no problem too big or too small My God is bigger and greater than all Come join the dance of the saved and the free Give Him a chance and I know you will see There is a song to be sung in the night Loosen your heart to His joy and delight

Innocence is Good By Frances Drost Pussy willow tree Calling to the child in me Come and find your rest Spend your day in sweet caress Listen to the wind blow Softly through my arms Take the time to sit here Think on lighter things Pussy willow tree Calling to the child in me Come and find your rest The birds have come They're here to nest Memories of childhood Lead me home to yesteryear It all adds up to lifetimes That one day started here Pussy willow tree Calling to the child in me Come and find your rest My roots are deep My shade delight Remind me where I'm going Is part of where I've been There I find a window to who it is I am Pussy willow tree Calling to the child in me Come and find your rest Here beneath my silver dress Things that I'd forgotten Places I have been Bring to me reminders That innocence is good

Someone Else's Shoes By Frances Drost When I was a little girl We would go and visit Grandpa's grave Almost every holiday we would stop and see I would watch my mother kneel Say a word maybe shed a tear I would wait so impatiently I guess I couldn't see Now I understand Things I couldn't see before Feelings I could never know 'Til they came to visit me Now I understand There are things I'll never know 'Til I've walked a mile or two In someone else's shoes Here I am I'm older now I go and visit my Daddy's grave Almost every time I'm near I stop and say hello I share my heart and shed a tear I'm feeling things I've never felt before I think I see what my mother saw What it meant to her All too soon The day will come You'll say goodbye to the one you love Death will come like the setting sun Night will settle in I pray for you a friend to come Hold your hand Wipe away all your tears Send a card Bring you a smile But one thing is for sure You will understand Things you couldn't see before Feelings you could never know 'Til they come to visit you You will understand There are things you'll never know 'Til you've walked a mile or two In someone else's shoes Now I understand There are things I'll never know 'Til I've walked a mile or two In someone else's shoes

about

C2004 Musical Creations

While driving in my car one day, I was mulling over how ineffective my prayer life seemed. Tempted to quit praying and/or believing, I reacted with a verbal outcry: "I Still Believe".

This album reflects a journey of faith, that led me through some rough terrain, ending with a bundle of songs.
