Fan Friday #8- All Things New

This week's video features a song we were inspired to write after a woman called for dulcimer lessons this week. Her story made us want to do more for her than just teaching her how to play hammer dulcimer. She needs the truth of redemtion that only Jesus can bring. We all do.

Lyrics are under the video.



All Things New

Could you teach me to play it?
She asked on a wire
Stretched between here and Wisconsin.
She had seen me playin'
And wanted to try
But was sure that she would fail

The farther we talked
Her sorrow came so close
Now 34 years of life and love and the man is gone

He makes all things new
He makes all things new
He makes all things new
Jesus is the first word and the last
He'll make it new

When the pain is still so real
Cause of lies that we've believed
But livin' in sewers is not where a child of the King should be

Cause He made all things new
He made all things new
He made all things new
Jesus is the first word and the last
Of all things new

    My husband and I experienced a few moments of quiet reverence during and after the playing of this song. Thank you. The family photo is beautiful.

    Thank you Sue and Melody and Cindy, it was a total joy to work with Donna on this song. I'm sure we'll finish it one day and play/sing it together. I'm really looking forward to doing the new album. Doing this Fan Friday thing with you all has brought a new level of playing and creativity to this house. I have a couple months here where I'm not gigging that much but that doesn't mean I'm now busy. I have teaching material that I'm working on and planning for the new CD. Loads of fun but lots of hard work. :)
