BandChristianChildren's Music

Arienne Elise is a new contemporary child singer. Arienne's music is fulfilling a void in the Christian family of captivating contemporary music created specifically for the preteen age group and their parents.

Biography

Arienne Elise's desire is to minister to preteens and their parents through songs created specifically for them. Arienne is the youngest of four home schooled children with a gift for singing. When Arienne expressed a desire to sing on the radio, Arienne's family realized that there are very few contemporary songs out there written just for the preteens. Most are songs that are popular with the mainstream Christian family today or older songs written for very small children. When Arienne was told of the difficulty of finding a song for her to sing, she said she could write her own song. Mr. Paul Mutebi, a family friend and professional musician, heard this song and said it could be a really good song. After some revisions by Paul, Arienne and Sean, Arienne's dad, this song called 'I Confess' was recorded. The heartfelt response of family and friends encouraged Arienne and her family to go on to record the album 'Sincerely'. This music is unique in that it is contemporary in nature, with catchy lyrics that are full of God's truths. There is something very pure in hearing a child singing songs written directly from the heart that affects people of all ages, not just the preteen. While full of Christian truth, Arienne's music also encourages the younger members of the Christian family that they are important to the body and dreams can come true.

Suddenly

Written By: Alexa and Denise Woodiwiss

VERSE 1/
I REMEMBER THE TIME
BEFORE YOU CAME INTO MY LIFE
I COULDN’T SEE CLEAR
MY LIFE WAS CLOUDY
SUDDENLY YOUR LIGHT WAS SHINING
MY WAY
YOUR LOVE, SO OVERWHELMING
I AM NEW AND FULFILLED
MY HOPE IS IN YOU LORD

CHORUS/
LIKE A SUNSET
YOU BURST INTO MY LIFE
ORANGE, PURPLE, PINK AND BLUE
I NEVER SAW BEFORE
EVERYTHING’S SO CRYSTAL CLEAR
SINCE YOU CAME INTO MY LIFE
I LOVE TO BE IN YOUR PRESENCE
JUST TO BE CLOSE TO YOU LORD

VERSE 2/
WHEN YOU OPENED MY EYES
I CAME FROM DARKNESS TO LIGHT
MANY COLORS SURROUND ME
YOUR ARMS OF LOVE AROUND ME
ONE THING I KNOW FOR SURE
YOUR LOVE IS SO UNFAILING
YOUR PROMISES ARE TRUE
I AM NEW AND FULFILLED
MY HOPE IS IN YOU LORD

CHORUS

BRIDGE/
YOUR LOVE HAS SET ME FREE
MY SOUL WAS HEAVY
YOU GAVE IT WINGS
I AM FREE TO FLY
WHERE YOU SEND ME LORD
TRANSFORMING LOVE
YOU GAVE TO ME

CHORUS (2 TIMES)

I Confess

Written By: Arienne and Sean Woodiwiss

VERSE 1/
DEAR LORD,
SOME DAYS I FEEL
YOU MUST LOOK AT ME,
WITH DISAPPOINTED EYES FOR WHEN,
I CRAWL INTO MY BED
I THINK ABOUT THE WRONG THINGS I’VE DONE
OH MY LORD

BUT I KNOW THAT YOUR WORD IS TRUE
AND IN THE MORNING YOUR MERCIES ARE NEW
BUT BEFORE I LAY ME DOWN TO SLEEP

CHORUS/
SO I CONFESS MY SINS TO THE LORD MY GOD
SO I CONFESS RIGHT HERE RIGHT NOW
SO I CONFESS MY SINS, SO I CONFESS MY SINS
LORD MY HEART’S DESIRE IS PLEASING YOU

VERSE 2/
OH LORD, YOU ARE THE HOLY ONE,
SO PURE AND SO KIND
YOU ARE MY SHEPHERD,
MY KING YOU’RE THE KEY
TO THE DOOR OF MY HEART
YOU’RE MY BRIGHT AND MORNING STAR
YOU ARE THE LIGHT OF MY WORLD

BUT I KNOW THAT YOUR WORD IS TRUE
AND IN THE MORNING YOUR MERCIES ARE NEW
BUT BEFORE I LAY ME DOWN TO SLEEP

CHORUS (2 TIMES)

END/
THIS IS MY PRAYER
PLEASING YOU (2 TIMES)

I Will Bless

CHORUS/
I WILL BLESS YOUR NAME
CAUSE YOU ARE HOLY
IN SPIRIT AND IN TRUTH
I WILL WORSHIP YOU
WITH A PURE HEART
AND CLEAN HANDS
I COME BOLDLY INTO
YOUR HOLY PRESENCE

VERSE 1/
IN YOUR PRESENCE
THERE IS FULLNESS OF JOY
THAT’S WHERE I LONG TO BE
NEVER LETTING GO
PEACE, LOVE, JOY I FIND
IN YOU EVERYDAY
I’M IN LOVE WITH YOU FOR
THE REST OF ALL MY DAYS

CHORUS

VERSE 2/
NOW THAT I HAVE TESTED
YOUR PRESENCE IN MY LIFE
I’M GONNA TESTIFY
UNTO THE WORLD
I WANT EVERY ONE TO KNOW
HOW SWEET YOU’VE BEEN TO ME
SO THAT THEY MAY KNOW
AND FALL IN LOVE WITH YOU
