BandChristianSinger/Songwriter

Self penned songs relating to my life experiences as a Christian.

Biography

I was brought up in the North East of Scotland, where my father was a fish salesman from the fishing town of Fraserburgh. My mother is originally from Stornoway in the Outer Hebrides and lives there today. I have recently completed an album called ..WITNESS.. This is a CD of self penned songs, of my own Christian Testimonial experiences. The songs reflect my experiences throughout my conversion to born again Christian, and the subsequent changes within my life immediately following that. They are primarily upbeat contemporary with a very individual sound. I am a passionate writer and lyricist, and feel that my messages of ..Witness.., combine in the production of this work which is aimed at all ages and generations. I am an adherent member of the Salvation Army (Peterhead Corps), along with my wife, Ann. We have associated with the Salvation Army since the start of our Christian life in 2004, and try to attend as many "Army" events as possible, as well as spending time with two wonderful grand daughters. I was born in Oban, brought up in Fraserburgh for the first thirteen years, and then Aberdeen for the ..teen years.. until my mid twenties, when my I moved to the village of Boddam by Peterhead.

Lyrics

Tear Down These Walls

Written By: Gordon Joseph Lovie

Battleing through the ways of life
Intentions being to prove
With energy and self commitment
Mountains can be moved

But where had the meaning gone, would there be glory?
What from the labour? Were to grow from it all.
Anything at all?

So tear down these walls said the Lord
Tear down these walls
With the might of God through Jesus
He tore down these walls

For many years I torched the candles
I kicked down many doors
Until the strength was drained from me
That I could burn no more

Where had the meaning gone, where was my glory?
Had I built this sorded wall? Meaningless and tall.
It’s so tall.

So tear down these walls said the Lord
Tear down these walls
With the might of God through Jesus
He tore down these walls

In the depths of an inner hollow
The voice of conscience called
The time was here, the time was now
For tearing down these walls

In the perfect time, in His time, with thunderous applause
The wall that was of great obstruction crashed to the floor.
It was no more.

We tore down these walls said the Lord
We tore down these walls
With the might of God through Jesus
We tore down these walls

Eternity with You

Written By: Gordon Joseph Lovie

I’ve been thinking back to different times within my life
To how I’ll be forever in your debt.
That day when my redemption was so joyfully confirmed,
That’s when I knew I’d seen my last regret.

The days since then are full of praise and now there is no doubt,
That since you’re in my life the glow is warm now in my heart.
And I had never thought, what only seemed like yesterday
Would bring your healing hands in to my life, light up the way.
So now I live that I just want to

To have you want to stay with me.
Have you want to pray with me.
To break down my fences
My boundary walls.
Just want eternity with you.

And now I know that I can have my days of ups and downs,
And they can sometimes take me to the brink.
But I would swim an ocean just to keep you in my life,
The seas of salted waater I would drink.

The days are now so full of praise and never are in doubt,
And now the time spent in my days are warmer in my heart.
And I had never thought what only seemed like yesterday
Would bring your healing hands in to my life, light up the way.
So now I live and breath for just one reason.

To make you want to stay with me.
To make you want to pray with me.
To break down my fences,
My boundary walls.
Just want eternity with you.
