I love old hymns, heck I love new hymns. And I use them for moments of quiet reflection and while studying. One thing I love to do, is record music, I've recorded hundred and hundreds of songs, 4 albums for 3 different independent bands, and several albums of my own work. I would like to pass along, for free, my musical musings, to help you as you wander through the Shadowlands.

    In The Garden - 01 - Volume #1

    "In the Garden" (sometimes rendered by its first line "I Come to the Garden Alone" is a gospel song written by American songwriter C. Austin Miles (1868–1946), a former pharmacist who served as editor and manager at Hall-Mack publishers for 37 years. According to Miles' great-granddaughter, the song was written "in a cold, dreary and leaky basement in Pitman, New Jersey that didn't even have a window in it let alone a view of a garden." The song was first published in 1912 and popularized during the Billy Sunday evangelistic campaigns of the early twentieth century by two members of his staff, Homer Rodeheaver and Virginia Asher.

    I play it a little different ;)
    Lyrics:1 I come to the garden alone,While the dew is still on the roses;And the voice I hear, falling on my ear,The Son of God discloses.
    2 He speaks, and the sound of His voiceIs so sweet the birds hush their singing;And the melody that He gave to meWithin my heart is ringing. 
    Refrain:And He walks with me, and He talks with me,And He tells me I am His own,And the joy we share as we tarry there,None other has ever known.
    Refrain:And He walks with me, and He talks with me,And He tells me I am His own,And the joy we share as we tarry there,None other has ever known.
    3 I'd stay in the garden with HimTho' the night around me be falling;But He bids me go; thro' the voice of woe,His voice to me is calling.
    Refrain:And He walks with me, and He talks with me,And He tells me I am His own,And the joy we share as we tarry there,None other has ever known.

    Just A Closer Walk With Thee - 03 - Volume #1

    Just A Closer Walk With Thee - 03 - Volume #1

    Just a Closer Walk with Thee is a traditional gospel song that has been performed and recorded by many artists. Performed as either an instrumental or vocal, "A Closer Walk" is perhaps the most frequently played number in the hymn and dirge section of traditional New Orleans jazz funerals. The title and lyrics of the song allude to the Biblical passage from 2 Corinthians 5:7 which states, "We walk by faith, not by sight" and James 4:8, "Come near to God and he will come near to you."
    The precise author of "A Closer Walk" was unknown until recently, although Peterson claimed that was not the case. Circumstantial evidence strongly suggested it dated back to southern African-American churches of the nineteenth century, possibly even prior to the Civil War, as some personal African American histories recall "slaves singing as they worked in the fields a song about walking by the Lord's side.". Horace Boyer cites a story that repudiates this claim, stating,
    “On a train trip from Kansas City to Chicago, Morris exited the train on one of its stops to get some fresh air and heard one of the station porters singing a song. He paid little attention at first, but after he reboarded the train the song remained with him and became so prominent in his mind that at the next stop, he left the train, took another train back to the earlier station, and asked the porter to sing the song again. Morris wrote down the words and music and published the song “Just a Closer Walk with Thee” that year, 1940, adding a few lyrics of his own to provide more breadth. Within two years the song became a standard in gospel music, eventually becoming a standard in Jazz, and then moving into the realm of American folk music, known and sung by many (Boyer, 75).”

    Lyrics:1 I am weak but Thou art strong;Jesus, keep me from all wrong;I'll be satisfied as longAs I walk, let me walk close to Thee.
    Refrain:Just a closer walk with Thee,Grant it, Jesus, is my plea,Daily walking close to Thee,Let it be, dear Lord, let it be.
    2 Thro' this world of toil and snares,If I falter, Lord, who cares?Who with me my burden shares?None but Thee, dear Lord, none but Thee. [Refrain]
    3 When my feeble life is o'er,Time for me will be no more;Guide me gently, safely o'erTo Thy kingdom shore, to Thy shore. [Refrain]

    Amazing Grace - 04 - Volume #1

    Amazing Grace - 04 - Volume #1

    Amazing Grace is a Christian hymn published in 1779, with words written by the English poet and Anglican clergyman John Newton (1725–1807). Newton wrote the words from personal experience. He grew up without any particular religious conviction, but his life's path was formed by a variety of twists and coincidences that were often put into motion by others' reactions to what they took as his recalcitrant insubordination. He was pressed (conscripted) into service in the Royal Navy, and after leaving the service, he became involved in the Atlantic slave trade. In 1748, a violent storm battered his vessel off the coast of County Donegal, Ireland, so severely that he called out to God for mercy, a moment that marked his spiritual conversion. He continued his slave trading career until 1754 or 1755, when he ended his seafaring altogether and began studying Christian theology.
    source: wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amazing_Grace 
    Lyrics:1Amazing grace! how sweet the sound,  That saved a wretch; like me!I once was lost, but now am found,  Was blind, but now I see.
    2’Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,  And grace my fears relieved;How precious did that grace appear  The hour I first believed!
    3The Lord hath promised good to me,  His word my hope secures;He will my shield and portion be  As long as life endures.
    4When we’ve been there ten thousand years,  Bright shining as the sun,We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise  Than when we first begun.

    Blessed Assurance - 05 - Volume #1

    Blessed Assurance - 05 - Volume #1

    Blessed Assurance is a well-known Christian hymn. The lyrics were written in 1873 by blind hymn writer Fanny Crosby to the music written in 1873 by Phoebe Knapp.
    Crosby was visiting her friend Phoebe Knapp as the Knapp home was having a large pipe organ installed. The organ was incomplete, so Mrs. Knapp, using the piano, played a new melody she had just composed. When Knapp asked Crosby, "What do you think the tune says?", Crosby replied, "Blessed assurance; Jesus is mine."The hymn appeared in the July 1873 issue of Palmer's Guide to Holiness and Revival Miscellany, a magazine printed by Dr. and Mrs. W. C. Palmer of 14 Bible House, New York City. The popular song reflects Crosby's walk of faith, as expressed by the apostle Paul in Philippians 1:21, "For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain"

    Lyrics:Stanza 1Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine!O what a foretaste of glory divine!Heir of salvation, purchase of God, Born of His Spirit, washed in His blood.
    Refrain:This is my story, this is my song, praising my Savior all the day long; this is my story, this is my song, praising my Savior all the day long. 
    Stanza 2Perfect submission, perfect delight! Visions of rapture now burst on my sight; Angels descending bring from above Echoes of mercy, whispers of love.(Refrain)
    Stanza 3Perfect submission, all is at rest! I in my Savior am happy and blessed, Watching and waiting, looking above, Filled with His goodness, lost in His love. (Refrain)

    Come, Thou Fount Of Every Blessing - 06 - Volume #1

    Come, Thou Fount Of Every Blessing - 06 - Volume #1

    Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing is a Christian hymn written by the 18th century pastor and hymnodist Robert Robinson. Robert Robinson penned the words at age 22 in the year 1757. In the United States, the hymn is usually set to an American folk tune known as "Nettleton", composed by printer John Wyeth, or possibly by Asahel Nettleton. In the United Kingdom, the hymn is also often set to the tune "Normandy" by C Bost. The "Nettleton" tune is used extensively in partial or full quotation by the American composer Charles Ives, in such works as the First String Quartet and the piano quintet and song "The Innate".
    source: wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Come_Thou_Fount_of_Every_Blessing
    Lyrics:
    1 Come, thou Fount of every blessing,tune my heart to sing thy grace;streams of mercy, never ceasing,call for songs of loudest praise.Teach me some melodious sonnet,sung by flaming tongues above.Praise the mount I'm fixed upon itmount of God's redeeming love.
    2 Here I find my greatest treasure;hither by thy help I've come;and I hope, by thy good pleasure,safely to arrive at home.Jesus sought me when a stranger,wandering from the fold of God;he, to rescue me from danger,bought me with his precious blood.
    3 Oh, to grace how great a debtordaily I'm constrained to be!Let thy goodness, like a fetter,bind my wandering heart to thee:prone to wander, Lord, I feel it,prone to leave the God I love;here's my heart, O take and seal it;seal it for thy courts above.
