Biography

I love country living. Most of my life revolves around music. I like to listen to it, go to concerts, and perform it. I play acoustic guitar, electric bass, mandolin and twelve string guitar. Songwriting is something I enjoy doing. I have been writing since age 14. "Standing on Faith Alone" is currently on a Limited Edition CD produced by Paramount Group in Nashville, Tennessee. Another great song is, "I Reach For You." It is the best song that I have written in 2006. A friend of mine who loves Gospel Praise music inspired me to try my pen at writing this type of hymn. I enjoy listening to Country Music, Southern Gospel, Bluegrass, Gospel Praise and 70's Rock& Roll.

Lyrics

Standing on Faith Alone

Standing on Faith Alone

I was watching the news the announcer came on

Said the wind and rains took many homes

From roof tops I could hear the people cry

The boats and planes were searching the ground

Looking for anyone to be found

And I Prayed Dear God please send your mercy down

Troubling times that test your faith

Tragedy that we all face

Holding on when all hope is gone

Trusting God when you're all alone

Praying for those that you’ve never known

Now you’re standing on faith alone

my heart became heavy I began to weep

Hearing about children dying in the street

someone was saying that everything was gone

They ask a mother did you lose your home

How on earth will you go on?

She said " I'm standing on faith alone."

This song was written about Hurricanes Katrina and Rita which destroyed most of New Orleans and surrounding areas in the fall of 2005. Writer Carolyn H. Harris- Copyright@2005, All rights Reserved

I Reach For You

Written By: Carolyn H. Harris

I Reach For You


Sometimes life…. can seem so unkind
I struggle each day just
Trying to find my way
But when trials take their toll
And I fall beneath the burden of the load
The Spirit speaks to me
And this is what I do
……………………………………………………

I REACH FOR YOU

I reach for you.....

When I don’t know what to do

Lord, I reach for you
………………………………………………………
When Peter stepped out, upon the raging sea
Jesus said, “Don’t fear
Just keep you eyes on me”
When Peter’s faith grew weak
He said, “Lord what must I do?”
When you can’t reach for me
I’ll reach for you
……………………………………………………………..

I’ll REACH FOR YOU

I’ll reach for you.....

And with two loving hands

I’ll carry you through
