Thank you for signing up.

The following song was actually written in 1989. I wrote it after a number of my family had passed away, and after a period of time where I was not sure about this world I was living in. I had read the Poem "Crossing the bar", liked it well enough, so I wrote a tune to go with the poem. But after I was done, I felt like there was something missing...

Fast forward to 2003, I purchased a program called "mixcraft", and realizing that is was extremely powerful I began working on a number of my old songs I'd written during that period. When I came to "Crossing the Bar" again, I wrote a second verse to the song, one that finally filled in the missing piece.



Here are the Lyrics...


Sunset and an evening star, and one clear call for me!And may there be no moaning of the bar, when I put out to sea,
For such a tide as moving seems asleep, too full for sound and foam,
When that which drew from out the boundless deep turns again home.



Twilight and evening bell and after that the dark!
And may there be no sadness of farewell when I embark;



For tho' from out our bourne of time and place the flood may bear me far,
I hope to see my Pilot face to face when I have crossed the bar.



Sunrise and the morning star, and I have heard the call!
And now I go to lay me down to rest in he who paid it all
For such a time I hear the voice of God and all that he's declared
The finest news to those in chains and hardened hearts impaired



Twilight and morning breeze, O what a wonderous sight!
The Son of Man, the Lamb of God: My only light



For tho' from out our bourne of time and place the flood may bear me far,
I KNOW I'll see my pilot face to face when I have crossed the bar.
