FOOT NOTE
I acknowledge that some themes of these songs are more challenging and perhaps better suited for older kids. Having spent a professional career in education, every year I enjoyed hearing students comment how they appreciated being treated like young adults. When children sing these truths of God, oftentimes we hear even from adults who say: now, I understand.





MORE SONGS FOR LITTLE FOLKS


The following songs are written for the littlest kids; and since children need to learn to get along with each other, these songs are not intended as solos. But get creative: every verse can be divided up in groups: girls and boys; by dynamics: loud parts and soft part; who sings the first divided section? the group that can memorize a verse first.


In many countries from Indonesia to India; from Kenya to Mexico and other places; those who do not have the resources we have in America: we sponsor Bible memorization... kid's learning whole chapters by memory. It's wonderful getting kids to help one another to learn Bible truths. No need for solos!

-- Actually, this is first church hymn I remember learning in elementary school (maybe 3rd or 4th grade). Part of the old hymn always sounded awkward, so I rewrote it a few years ago, and now even one of the large African American congregations in town sings it!

And you will notice, I often use the word "Thy". I figure, if the LORD puts up with all our "Me's" and "My's" that HE has to listen to all the live long day... we can teach our kids to sing an occasional "Thy", right?!

SONGS ODES & SPIRITUALS


AMAZING GRACE - from "SONGS ODES & SPIRITUALS" (SATB) arranged by R KEITH, Copyrightę2008-R KEITH ; 7 pages

GOD AND MY BIRTHRIGHT - from "SONGS ODES & SPIRITUALS" (SATB) arranged by R KEITH, Copyrightę2009-R KEITH ; 5 pages - VERSE Text: ISAIAH 18 vs 1 pdf; Here's an arrangment that won't be sung because it's too difficult for kids attending private schools; and adult choirs won't sing it because it's politically incorrect now days. Nonetheless, the song follows traditional protestant truth -- although it no longer reflects the once greatly blessed nation that was honored by God like no other nation in world history.

The Prophet Amos wrote: Take away the noise of your songs -- Amos 5; next year we will probably remove this from our list, as our nation's government has become overly swamped with thugs and criminals and thieves, swiftly hurrying the curse, the Wrath of God on our nation; and all the singing in the world won't change it:

DOCUMENTARY: THOSE of ancient ROME mentality (those who have no king but caesar) WHO ARE BEHIND EVERY MAJOR EVENT IN RECENT YEARS -- So this IS what prophet Daniel warned us about... part of the LAST BEAST GOVT smashing and destroying until the whole world is broken.


A MOTHER OF WHORES - from "SONGS IN THE NIGHT" by R KEITH, Copyrightę2015-R KEITH ; 1 pages - VERSES Text: REVELATION 18 vs 1 pdf; another song that nobody will sing EXCEPT the univsersity students we know in many places (though it is scripturally sound)

A MOTHER OF WHORES

A MOTHER OF WHORES - by R KEITH, Copyrightę2015-R KEITH ; 1 page
- recently some church-guy in England who did not look holy, but looked wholly goofy, he said Christians had much they needed to repent for (and maybe HE DID)... and being a sound-bite, he probably alluded to the brutal roman crusades. Now honestly, I don't know any follower of the LORD JESUS who would have ever joined any roman crusade destroying lives and communities, do you? We have a King and HE ain't caesar.

The night Jesus was betrayed, He said: By this, all shall know that you are My disciples... If you have love, one for another! Do not apologize for what Jesus said, just because wolves in sheep's clothing say they come in His name. The hallmark of the Lord Jesus Christ is His great love for His Father, and for those who follow Him! Jesus gave His life for individuals; not for institutions or nations. Any nation, including ours... which no longer has a majority who follow the Lord, which turns from trusting the Lord may have 21st century policies that resemble the murderous roman crusades well, that's not MY govt I'm ruled by God - prophet Daniel told us about that last beast: read Daniel 2, 7 and 8. Clearly, don't join them... Come out of her, and don't delay; the Lord will take care of them! They are the same ones who demonize Russia, who want us to demonize Russia, too; but we need to remind one another that next to the United States, Russia is the 2nd largest country of Christians: our brothers and sisters who faithfully follow the Lord Jesus.

The night of Katrina 2005, I sat down to the piano and did this arrangement, as my prayer to the Lord for the impending storm; this is the only song I sang as a solo in Dr. Gene Scott's congregation; I found it the other day; we in the church know a greater storm in approaching - it is not a time of fear, it is a time to take our stand; and Edward Mote's words 1834, and William Bradbury's music 1863 couldn't be more appropriate.

SONGS and THOUGHTS IN PROGRESS
Due to the nature of creativity, most of songs are committed to heart instead of singers holding papers: so many songs are sung: but not musically scored. If these pdf files disappear from this section, it means time was found to write out the music. For now, they are mental notes: simply put online to share with our many music educator friends.?


LET THE REDEEMED OF THE LORD SAY SO - by R KEITH, Copyrightę2014-R KEITH ; 1 page
- this will be a call to worship first

A METANOIA MOMENT - by R KEITH, Copyrightę2014-R KEITH ; 1 page
- this will be a song for young folks

A MULTITASK EXERCISE - Copyrightę2015-R KEITH ; 1 page
- HERE IS A SIMPLE EXERCISE FOR SENIOR CITIZENS... based on recent Japanese medical research... which should help strengthen the voice in songs of praise to our Lord.

YET ONCE MORE I SHAKE - NOT THE EARTH ONLY, BUT ALSO HEAVEN; by R KEITH, Copyrightę2015-R KEITH; 2 pages NOTES: thoughts on Hebrews 12: 26


FOOT NOTE - We have over 30 hymns (written in the 1800s) that have been brushed off and refreshed for the 21st Century... in order to preserve the truth of these uniquely Christian songs. Being literally the last person to graduate from USC with an undergraduate degree in Church Music, I have always been challenged by church musicians who aren't creative?! (at the same time, being challenged by non-church musicians asking why I waste my time - though they wouldn't have a job if they weren't playing at a church program!!).

We all noticed hymnals disappearing, being stuffed away on shelves... no longer available to many congregations, their truth being lost to this generation. And what is the replacement? Little teams of wonderful, smiling singers, whom you get the impression would love to "make it in Hollywood" given the chance... while the congregation looks on and tepidly applauds; producing non-participation at its finest!

So we are working on how to present the great Hymns of the Faith. Keep checking back.

In the Pakistani church they sing,
Even if they hang me,
I will follow Jesus

based on Revelation 2:10 - "Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life."
Learn about what is going on in the church Jesus is building: The persecuted church - the real church... in the 21st century.





CALL to WORSHIP & RESPONSORIALS


AWAKE THE HEART - from "CALL TO WORSHIP" (SATB) by R KEITH, Copyrightę2008-R KEITH ; 2 pages

GREAT IS THE LORD! - from "CALL TO WORSHIP" (SATB) by R KEITH, Copyrightę2014-R KEITH ; 1 page

LIFT HIGH THE CROSS - from "CALL TO WORSHIP" (SATB) by R KEITH, Copyrightę2008-R KEITH ; 2 pages

NOW THANK WE ALL OUR GOD - from "CALL TO WORSHIP" (SATB) by R KEITH, Copyrightę2008-R KEITH ; 2 pages

O LET MAN LISTEN - from "The AMEN Choir - 1ST Baptist Church Van Nuys" (1960s) - by ____?; 2 pages
perhaps the most memorable call to worship ever written. If anyone knows who wrote this, please let us know.


PRAISE OUR GOD - All Ye His People from "CALL TO WORSHIP" (SATB) by R KEITH, Copyrightę2013-R KEITH ; 2 pages

TO THEE ALONE (SATB) by R KEITH, Copyrightę2008-R KEITH ; 2 pages

WHAT SHALL I GIVE UNTO THE LORD - from "CALL TO WORSHIP" (SATB) by R KEITH, Copyrightę2009-R KEITH ; 4 pages ...it's lively; not loud

YE WATCHERS AND YE HOLY ONES (SATB) by R KEITH, Copyrightę2013-R KEITH ; 2 pages

FOOT NOTE - Many congregations across America use CALL to WORSHIP music begin their services. Though I tend to think... "let's just get started..." nonetheless, some traditions are stubborn. So it's an interesting thought to consider that these short musical statements have and continue to open Service across America... and in so many places since the 1970s. TGBTG!
YE WATCHERS AND YE HOLY ONES (SATB) by R KEITH, Copyrightę2013-R KEITH ; 2 pages


TWO FINAL SONGS

GONE FROM SIGHT - by R KEITH, Copyrightę2016-R KEITH ; 1 page, PROUD TO BE A PROTESTANT.
with American TOILETS as pressing EXECUTIVE issue of the 21st CENTURY (while millions of lives around the world are being distrupted and destroyed... at US tax-payers expense; while Christians are being murdered for their faith; while they flee and use toilets behind a bush or a boulder; the CHURCH needs to stay awake as to what is going on... by those driving their GLOBAL agenda throughout the world, DANIEL said: the last govt will be smashing and destroying until the whole world was broken... so, don't join them, come out of them. The Lord will deal with them.

SONGS OF THE PRIDEFUL AND THE PHARISAICAL - In Search of the TOP 10 by R KEITH, Copyrightę2016-R KEITH ; 1 page, songs for the angry, loveless, heartless



THE SONGLIST: JESUS, the good Teacher was a singer; and the great Church HE is building... sings. We know, Amos told the congregation in the last days to "take away the noise of your songs" Amos 5; so, if the songs of the people of the Living God... are getting in the way of learning and growing and staying awake, then we fully agree, it's time to get silent; it's time to take in the Word of the Lord -- each day; every day. We hope you enjoy the list of brothers and sisters in the LORD, singing praise to our Great GOD from the rising to the setting of the sun. If you have suggestions of singers and songs to add; please let us know.
