Someone Cares

I was recently challenged to try my hand at something new.

I took to a keyboard, and with the help of Glenn Smith (my trusty Producer/Assistant!) I was able to write a new tune for a Salvation Army song, Someone Cares.

I’d love it if you’d have a listen and let me know what you think! Keep in mind, it’s my first go!

Someone Cares (SASB 238)

1516667614_bfe335e920Do you sometimes feel that no-one truly knows you?
And that no-one understands or really cares?
Through His people God himself is close beside you,
And through them He plans to answer all your prayers.

Someone cares, someone cares,
Someone knows your deepest need, your burden shares,
Someone cares, someone cares,
God Himself will hear the whisper of your prayers.

Ours is not a distant God, remote unfeeling
Who is careless of our loneliness and pain
Through the ministry of men, He gives His healing
In their dedicated hands, brings hope again.

I know He cares for me (SASB CH 133)

I know He cares for me,
I know He cares for me,
I’ll trust my Father in Heaven,
For I know that He cares for me.

I know He cares for you,
I know He cares for you,
I’ll trust my Father in Heaven,
For I know that He cares for you.

We shall win.

"The decree has gone forth that the kingdoms of this world shall become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ and that He shall reign whose right it is from the River to the ends of the earth. We shall win. It is only a question of time. I believe that this Movement shall inaugurate the final conquest of our Lord Jesus Christ."
- General Catherine Booth
