I Am Holding You

by The Solo Committee

I Am Holding You Words by Susan Mack Music by Susan Mack, Carey Loomis Edited/Arranged by The Solo Committee Verse 1 Is there a God, a mind besides Me? There’s no other god, none else to see! I am the first, and I am the last. I command and creation, creation, stands fast! Chorus: I am holding you, I am knowing you. I am minding you, and causing you. I am blessing you, and cherishing you, My own image, expression, reflection so true. Verse 2 I am in control of all I create. My works are true. My thoughts are great. And you are embraced in such infinite care, No thought goes astray, no moment of fear. Chorus Verse 3 My power and strength are a law to each day. I’m guiding and guarding each step of the way. No accident, chance, untoward event Can ever disturb My all good intent. Chorus Bridge I take unto me my great power and I reign. I govern creation without stress or strain. I delight in the glory of all that I am— And you are the joy I’m reflecting as man. Chorus
New Jerusalem Words and music by Susan Mack Edited/Arranged by The Solo Committee Verse 1 I, John, saw the holy city of God Coming down from God out of heaven, Prepared as a beautiful bride to be wed— Wed to her new husband. Chorus: Behold, I make all things new. Behold, for it is ever true, This city of God that is built in your hearts, New Jerusalem as Mind imparts. Verse 2 This consciousness had the glory of God, Radiant as a precious jasper stone, Clear as crystal and reflecting God’s power Upon Mind’s omnipotent throne. Chorus Bridge It lieth foursquare and hath no need of moon or sun For the glory of God and the Lamb doth it enlighten. Verse 3 And the nations shall walk, yes they all shall walk, In the light of this glorious truth. And the kings of the earth and all the people it taught Hath it honor and glory brought. Chorus
O Sing Unto the Lord Words and music by Susan Mack Edited/Arranged by The Solo Committee Verse 1 Lord, you’ve been our dwelling place for all generations. Before the mountains existed or the earth had taken form, From everlasting you are God. We abide in the beauty of the Lord. Chorus: O sing unto the Lord a new song. Sing unto the Lord all the earth. Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness. My soul shall be joyful in the Lord. Verse 2 Almighty God you’re like the dawning sun. From Zion’s perfect beauty You shine. And every detail of the universe Reflects the glory that is Thine. Chorus Bridge Hear O Lord, O hear my cry. I will see your face in righteousness. You have proved my heart and tried my reigns. I am satisfied to be your likeness. Chorus
I Will Pour Out My Spirit Words and music by Susan Mack Edited/Arranged by The Solo Committee Verse 1 Now when the day of Pentecost was come They were all with one accord in one place. And each one was filled with the Holy Ghost And began to speak in tongues. Chorus: I will pour out My Spirit Upon all flesh. I am the Spirit, the Spirit that quickens, The Holy Ghost overcoming sin and death. Verse 2 It was the Spirit that made them speak, As was prophesied by Joel, “It will come to pass in the last day,” saith God “I will pour out my Spirit on them all.” Chorus Verse 3 Then said Peter unto them, “Repent and be baptized every one, And you shall receive the gift of the Spirit For with Christ there is no condemnation.” Chorus
Give Me O Lord Chorus words and music by Susan Mack Verse words by James J. Rome Edited/Arranged by The Solo Committee Hymn Verse 1 Give me, O Lord, an understanding heart, That I may learn to know myself in Thee, To spurn the wrong and choose the better part And thus from sinful bondage be set free. Verse 1 I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord, That he would grant me, according to his riches, To be strengthened by his Spirit In the inner man, The Kingdom within. Hymn Verse 2 Give me, O Lord, a meek and contrite heart, That I may learn to quell all selfish pride, Bowing before Thee, see Thee as Thou art And ‘neath Thy sheltering presence safely hide. Verse 2 That Christ may dwell in my heart by faith; That I be rooted and grounded in love. That I comprehend with the saints The breadth and length, the depth and height. Hymn Verse 3 Give me, O Lord, a gentle loving heart, That I may learn to be more tender, kind, And with Thy healing touch, each wound and smart With Christly bands of Love and Truth to bind. Verse 3 And may I know the love of Christ Which passeth knowledge. May I be filled with all the fullness, The fullness of God. Give me, O Lord, give me an understanding heart.
Simply Praising Him Words and music by Susan Mack Edited/Arranged by The Solo Committee Verse 1 When my heart is lost in sorrow, No prayer comes to my lips. There’s a tender prayer I can always pray, It’s simply praising Him. Chorus: Praise the Creator, Let all within me sing! For that’s what I am made to do, And comfort it will bring. Verse 2 When weariness engulfs me, Discouragement sinks in, There’s a hopeful prayer I can always pray, Simply praising Him. Chorus And courage it will bring. Verse 3 When my days are much too busy To find where prayer fits in, There’s a timeless prayer I can always pray, Simply praising Him. Chorus And stillness it will bring. Verse 4 When earth seems satisfying, My joys filled to the brim, There’s still a prayer I need to pray, Simply praising Him Chorus And goodness it will bring. For that’s what we are made to do, Let all the earth now sing!
Perfect Love Casts Out Fear Words and music by Susan Mack Edited/Arranged by The Solo Committee Verse 1 Sometimes our hearts cry in despair, The way is blocked at every turn, Then, childlike, we turn to Mind, From whom alone we learn. Chorus God hath not given us the spirit of fear But of power and of love and a sound mind, For perfect Love, casts out fear— This All-in-all of perfect care. Verse 2 We can’t fight it out in this world that we see, Where terror is all around. But safe in Mind we find our peace, Our health, our hope, our home. Chorus Bridge All-knowing Mind, the great I AM, We pray for humility, To yield all anxious cares of earth To your tranquility. Chorus
With Me 03:52
With Me Words and music by Susan Mack Edited/Arranged by The Solo Committee Verse 1 When the needy seek water and there is none, When their tongue fails for thirst, I will hear them. I make the wilderness flowing springs. I am Love, I am Life, so I do these things. Chorus You are with Me, with Me, as reflection of light. You are with Me, with Me, as expression of Life. For with Me, with Me, is the fountain of Life. For with Me, with Me, in my light shall you see light. Verse 2 For as the rain comes down from heaven, It waters earth and it blossoms as I have given. So shall my word be that goeth forth from my mouth, It’s not in vain, but bears fruit I send forth. Chorus Verse 3 My love is excellent, trust in Me. You are tucked up under the shadow of My wing. You are abundantly satisfied with My thought And you drink of the river of My pleasures, unsought. Chorus
I Will Comfort You Words and music by Susan Mack Edited/Arranged by The Solo Committee Verse 1 I have laid the foundations of the earth. It cannot be removed. I send forth My spirit; I create. The face of the earth is renewed. Chorus I will comfort you. I will comfort you. Like a flowing stream, a river of peace, I will comfort you! Verse 2 My hands stretch out the heavens. I make the earth and man. In wisdom I make them all, My thoughts at My command. Chorus Bridge As one whom his mother comforts, I love and hold you dear. You are always safe in Love. There is no cause for fear. Chorus
Alleluia 03:22
Alleluia Words and Music by Susan Mack Edited/Arranged by The Solo Committee Verse 1 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; A great red dragon who had seven heads, And ten horns upon his heads, and seven crowns, But that old serpent, Satan, was cast out. Chorus Alleluia! Alleluia! For the Lord God omnipotent reigneth, He shall reign forever more. Verse 2 And I heard a loud voice in heaven, “Now is come salvation and strength, And the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ; The accuser of our brethren is cast down.” Chorus Bridge He was cast out and his angels with him, Neither was his place found at all in heaven. Therefore, rejoice and all praise His name. The kingdoms of this world become the kingdoms of our Lord. Chorus
I Know 03:31
I Know Words and music by Susan Mack Edited/Arranged by The Solo Committee Verse 1 I am the first and I am the last; The future, the present, the past. You are my witness and my servant, My caring as ever constant. Chorus: I know — The thoughts that I think towards you, Thoughts of peace and not of evil, To give you an expected end of truth. Verse 2 I will give you a heart to know me, Welling from within assuredly. When you call upon me and you do pray I will hear you and you will hear me say, Chorus Verse 3 You will seek and you will find me When you search with all your heart, faithfully. I will be found as the truth you are seeking, For in Me you live and move and have your being. Chorus
The Lord’s Prayer Spiritual Interpretation (italics) by Mary Baker Eddy Music by Susan Mack Edited/Arranged by The Solo Committee Our Father which art in heaven, Our Father-Mother God, all-harmonious, Hallowed be Thy name. Adorable One. Adorable One. Thy kingdom, Thy kingdom come, Thy kingdom is come; Thou art ever-present. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Enable us to know,—as in heaven, so on earth,—God is omnipotent, supreme. Give us this day our daily bread. Give us grace for to-day; feed the famished affections; And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And Love is reflected in love; And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil; And God leadeth us not into temptation, but delivers us from sin, disease, and death. For Thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory, forever. For God is infinite, all-power, all Life, Truth and Love, over all, and All.
Thou Art Mine Words and music by Susan Mack Edited/Arranged by The Solo Committee Verse 1 Thus saith the Lord, O Jacob, I am he that created thee. It is I that have formed man, I have redeemed thee. Chorus I have called thee by thy name; Thou art Mine. I have formed thee for Myself; Thou art Mine. Verse 2 Thou art precious in My sight; I have loved thee. Thou hast been an honor to Me; I have lifted thee. Chorus Bridge I will say to the north, ‘Give up!’ And to the south, ‘Keep not back!’ Bring my sons from afar, And my daughters from the ends of the earth. Verse 3 I am the Lord your holy one, The Lord of everything, The creator of Israel, I am your King. Bridge Chorus
