(adapted from “My Heart Will Go On”, the love theme from “Titanic”, by Celine Dion)

Every night in my prayers
I reach for Your presence
There I find the strength to go on
Through my day of failing
And Satan’s assailings
In Your hands, my heart must belong (more…)

by Paul Bishop – April 13, 1998

“Oh Father, will You rescue Me?
I’ve done what I can
Now the test must come

The Voice Of Music


by Paul Bishop – March 24, 1998

Though I may not play perfection
When my fingers press these valves
I know the music for my soul will be
A sonorous, healing salve
For in the music when I play

To my quiet heart that beats
To the rhythm of emotion, finding
Where the Lord my soul will meet
And within the inspired harmonies
My Saviour comes and speaks to me

Caused my voice to quaver (more…)

From asking why
And shaking my fists
Up at the heavens in vain (more…)

On My Journey


by Paul Bishop — May 7, 1995

Here I am, in the middle of a journey
The place where I began is far behind
And further in the distance
Lies the ending of my trek
But the path from here to there is hard to find

Lead me on, O lord
Give me faith to carry on
In the middle of the journey
Where the darkness lasts too long
Shine a lamp, O Lord
Reveal the path to travel on
From where I am to where I’ll be
Walk along beside me (more…)
