I've been writing songs for over 40 years now and this is a simple one from the late 1970's...I always wanted to update it so thanks to BiaB I found the right instrumentation...this ia hybrid recording of a mix of mandolins and acoustic guitar from BiaB with a 12 string, bass and rhythm from my Yamaha Genos keyboard...it is simple folk Gospel...hope you enjoy this old song with a new hybrid recording...Dan

Hello, 'firesong'...

It's good to be reminded of Jesus' persistent, unwavering message to us: the healing, forgiving and redemptive power of L-O-V-E. It cannot be repeated too much.

Through your committed, passionate and powerful singing, the meaning of the deeply spiritual lyrics was simply and persuasively revealed. The Real Tracks you chose 'escorted' the message like a gentle wind pushing a boat down a quiet stream.

Your song made me feel as though I was being given a glimpse of the 'better world' beyond this one. Thank you for it.

Sincerely,

LOREN (a.k.a. 'bluage')

Loren...thank you for your gracious comments...every gospel writer wishes their song could and would have that effect on the listener...my hope has always been not to be the best writer, singer or musician (of which I am not) but to be an anointed vessel from which He communicates His L-O-V-E...thanks again and blessings...Dan

Great message, perfect medium. Superb vocals and production. Only thing you need to change is "Pilot's" to "Pilate's."

You have a rich and impressive voice that's well recorded but has a few issues with hwat ever processing you're using on it.
Low notes seem to push to the left side - though it may be a second vocal - but when it happens in the 1st verse the bottom end seems to drop away from the centre. Quite a bit of sibilant stuff happening too.
Great voice.

Nice work. Good use of BIAB. Wonderful vocals. Like Dylan, I get my religion through the songs and I got the message here.
