  1. Over the past few years, I wrote this collection of songs. My illness may prevent me from doing anything with them. Therefore, I am them here. I hope that some day they will bring glory to God our Father and our Lord Jesus Christ. I tried to load the file, but that didn't work. So I'll paste them.



    Song Of The Day

    By David Louton
    This song is to the tune of “Poor Wayfaring Stranger”
    Father God Show Me The Way

    Father God, show me the way
    You are the potter I am clay
    Mold me and make me in your image
    Father God, show me the way

    Father God, you know me will
    And you know where I have failed
    Never give up working on me
    Make me the man I aught to be

    Father God, show me the way
    In green pastures make me lay
    Through this life be my guide
    Let me in your love abide

    Father God, bless my soul
    All my weaknesses you know
    Father, help me overcome them
    Father God, show me the way

    Father God, fill me with love
    And with wisdom from above
    Father, fill me with your goodness
    Father God, show me the way

    Father God, thy kingdom come
    Let thy will on earth be done
    In the name of Christ, I pray
    Father God, show me the way


    Song Of The Day
    By David Louton
    Sing to the tune of “You Make Me Feel Brand New”

    Father God Have Your Way

    My God, have your way, my God
    This I pray, my God
    Let thy will be done, my God
    Father God, you know the way things aught to be
    And you know what is right for me
    When I was blind, you made me see
    Only you cared, when I needed a friend
    Delivered me from all my sin
    How could I repay the precious love you gave to me

    Have your way. Father God, have your way
    In Jesus name I pray, Father God, have your way
    In Christ name I pray, Father have your way

    My God, whenever I am insecure
    You lift me up and make me sure
    You give my hope back to me
    Father God, all through this life be my guide
    Let me in your love abide
    I know you’re always on my side
    Bless my soul! You know my thoughts and my deeds
    And you know my every need
    Give to me this day The daily bread, I pray
    MY GOD!

    Have your way. Father God, have your way
    In Jesus name I pray
    Father God, have your way
    In Christ name I pray
    Father God, have your own way
    What more can I say
    Father, have your way

    Hold Me Close To You Good Shepherd

    Hold me close to you, good shepherd
    And always, let me in your love abide
    Make me lay down in green pastures
    And always, through this life be my guide

    Your love is all I really need to keep me satisfied

    Hold me close to you, good shepherd
    While I try to serve you every day
    Never give up working on me

    In times when I feel so all alone
    I know the comforter is with me
    And will be till the day you take me home

    Your love is all I really need to keep me satisfied
    Good shepherd, hold me close to you
    And let me, in your love abide



    Song of the day
    By David Louton
    Sing to tune of “Legend of Edmond Fitzgerald”

    A Ballad Of Prophecy

    The word of God said; Jesus rose from the dead
    And he lives with his father in heaven
    All those who believe, for their faith will receive
    The gift of eternal salvation

    Abraham knew, and the prophets did too
    That the kingdom of God is coming
    Only God knows when the trumpet will blow
    But the signs of the time are showing

    The people of God have now reclaimed their sod
    And a Zionist nation their building
    Their fighting a war, and there’s rumors of more
    To the holy land that may be coming

    What will Christ say to you on judgment day
    Well done, or I never knew ya
    Turn not away, from the wards I must say
    For tomorrow is not promised to ya

    Look to the cross. There’s no need to be lost
    The blood of the lamb will save ya
    Turn from your sin, and be born again
    Put your love and trust in Jehovah


    Song of the day
    By David Louton
    This one was inspired by listening to the Sean Hannity program
    Sing to tune “If You Could Read My Mind”

    Let Not Your Heart Be Troubled

    Let not your heart be troubled. Come to me. I will give you rest
    My yoke upon you is easy. To the master give of your best
    Turn not away from this call. You must hear what I say
    He loves you. This I know
    And no matter where you go, inside your soul, his spirit will abide

    Let not your heart be troubled. Trust in God and all will be well
    Go to this world that is dying. Of his great salvation tell
    Be of good cheer. Jesus will be with you. Have no fear
    You’ll never be alone
    And when your work on earth is done; the victory won, you will be glorified

    Let not your heart be troubled, even when this world brings you down
    This cross that you must carry, one day will become a crown
    And on that day, every knee will bow and every tong shall say
    That Jesus is the lord
    Go forth to the ends of earth, and tell the good news of his holy word

    And no matter where you go, inside your soul you will have his spirit
    When your work on earth is done; the victory won, you will be glorified



    Song of the day
    By David Louton
    Sing to tune of “I Remember Finding Out About You”

    Bless My Soul Gentile Savior

    Bless my soul gentile savior, I pray
    You are the life, and the truth, and the way
    Let thy will be done here on earth, as it is done above
    And let me always praise thy name. Thy perfect law is love

    Bless my soul gentile savior, I pray
    Be my best friend now, and on judgment day
    Lead me not into temptation. Let me abide in you
    While I try to keep my mind right, and all I say and do

    Bless my soul gentile savior, I pray
    In your blood wash all of my sins away
    Fill my heart with your perfect law, and with amazing grace
    Thy kingdom come. JESUS BRING IT ON! I WANT TO SEE YOUR FACE!


    I wrote this song for my dad. Some of you may remember that he was song director at Meadow View, a long time past. He always thought the music to the song “Pass Me Not Oh Gentile Savior” was beautiful, and that the expression gentile savior was accurate. But, he would never use that hymn in any of his song services. He reasoned that Jesus never passes anyone by. It is we who pass him by. So, with him in mind, I borrowed the wards gentile savior.


    Song of the day
    By David Louton
    Sing to the tune of “Sweet Caroline”

    Sweet Lamb Of God

    Just when I think time are getting tough, I think of what Christ did for me
    He gave his life. He shed his precious blood. He died on the cross, at calvary
    Hands; nail scared hands, crown of thorns. On the cross, Jesus died

    Sweet Lamb of God, you washed all my sins away
    I’m born again; now I’m ready judgment day

    Friend, if you’re lost, you don’t know what’s missin; you don’t know what true love is
    Look to the cross, and become a Christian, and forever you will live
    Grace; saving grace, God is love, God is truth, God is life

    Sweet Lamb of God, you washed all my sins away
    I’m born again; now I’m ready judgment day

    Children of God don’t waste time. There’s a lot of work that we must do
    Spread the good news; tell everyone you know, what the savior did for you
    Lord; Lord of Lords; King of Kings; Prince of Peace; LAMB OF GOD!

    Sweet Lamb of God, you washed all my sins away
    I’m born again; now I’m ready judgment day. OH GLORY!

    Bless the lord, oh my soul! Bless the lord, oh my soul!
    Bless the lord for all that’s good
    Bless the lord because you should
    Bless the lord with songs of praise
    Bless him for his perfect ways

    Bless the lord, oh my soul! Bless the lord, oh my soul!
    Bless the lord, he has a plan
    For each woman and man
    Bless the lord, thy kingdom come
    Bless the lord, thy will be done

    Bless the lord, oh my soul! Bless the lord, Oh my soul!

    Father make this a holy place


    Song Of The Day
    By David Louton
    Sing to the tune of “If I could Fly I’d Lift You Up”

    You Give Me Love

    When this world brings me down
    I know just what to say
    There will be a crown
    Waiting for me one day
    And I know this is true
    You give me love that lifts me up
    You put the Holy Spirit in my life
    Oh, you give me love that gives me hope
    For eternal life in paradise

    When darkness surrounds me
    You will show me the way
    You always hear me every time I pray
    And you fill all my needs
    When I am alone
    And no one’s around to care
    My friends are all gone
    But I will not despair
    Cause, I know this is true
    You give me love that lifts me up
    You put the Holy Spirit in my life
    Oh, you give me love that gives me hope
    For eternal life in paradise

    Come To Me

    Come to me, my yoke is easy
    Come to me, my burden is light
    I will give you, life eternal
    Oh lost one, you come to me

    I know you’re lost, and you’re all alone
    Prodigal one, it’s time to come home
    I will give you rest
    And fill your lonely heart with gladness

    And, when this world brings you down
    I will be there; I’m always around
    To you I will bring
    The peace that passeth understanding

    You know my voice, know fallow my call
    I will lift you up, I won’t let you fall
    I will be your friend
    And, I will comfort you to the end

    Come to me, my yoke is easy
    Come to me, my burden is light
    I will give you, life eternal
    Oh lost one, you come to me
    Oh lost one, you come to me
