Biography

I began my music career by winning the hearts of the PTA at my elementary school when, at age 6, I sang and tap danced to: When the Red-Red Robin Comes Bob-Bob-Bobbin Along. From there, it was school plays, lots and lots of talent contests, beauty and talent pageants, speaking and singing to countless civic organizations, churches, and church groups throughout the south and southwest and overseas. I've played drums and keyboard since I was a teenager, and I've been writing music most of my life. Having been a radio DJ, I've written and performed radio and television voice over work and written commercial jingles. I was even on a Chuck E. Cheese commercial!
I've never been comfortable with casual effort in anything I do. And, I'm still prepared. Although I've been sidelined since Nov. 2007 with a vocal cord injury, I'm still writing music. You will love this stuff.

Lyrics

DANCE ON THE WATER

Written By: JANET S. VINES

See the morning sun arise
and Dance on the Water
Fish tuggin on my line
Dance on the Water
To think that You made all of this for me
The mountains and the flowers and the trees
I marvel at the vistas that I see
Dance on the Water
Rain fallin on my face
Dance on the Water
I see Your presence in the place
Dance on the Water
Everything that You created sings Your praise
The clouds awaken from their sleepy haze
The sky's afire with colors that amaze and Dance on the Water

FALL IN LOVE WITH ME AGAIN

Written By: JANET S. VINES

FALL IN LOVE WITH ME, AGAIN
TAKE ME TO, ‘REMEMBER WHEN’
YOU AND I WERE MORE THAN FRIENDS
FALL IN LOVE WITH ME, AGAIN

IT WAS LONG AGO
IT WAS YESTERDAY
WE USED TO LAUGH AND TALK
YOU’D LOOK AT ME
AND KNOW JUST WHAT TO SAY
NOW THE THINGS OF TIME, AND THE THINGS OF LIFE
ARE MORE ATTRACTIVE THAN I EVER WAS
‘CAUSE NOW I’M JUST YOUR WIFE

FALL IN LOVE WITH ME, AGAIN
TAKE ME TO, ‘REMEMBER WHEN’
YOU AND I WERE MORE THAN FRIENDS
FALL IN LOVE WITH ME, AGAIN

I KNOW YOUR LOVE FOR ME IS STRONG
MINE FOR YOU THE SAME
I MISS YOUR HUNGER AND YOUR THIRST FOR ME
YOU CALLING OUT MY NAME
------------
I KNOW YOUR LOVE FOR ME IS STRONG
MINE FOR YOU THE SAME
I MISS YOUR HUNGER AND YOUR THIRST FOR ME
AND IF I AM TO BLAME

LET’S START ANEW LET’S START AGAIN
TO BE BEST LOVERS AND BEST FRIENDS
THE ROAD WE’RE ON, IT NEVER ENDS
FALL IN LOVE WITH ME AGAIN

FALL IN LOVE WITH ME, AGAIN
TAKE ME TO, ‘REMEMBER WHEN’
LOVE ME LIKE I’VE NEVER BEEN
FALL IN LOVE WITH ME, AGAIN

MY OFFERING (A SIMPLE SONG)

Written By: JANET S. VINES

My Lord, My king, My God, my Father, I lift my hands in Praise
My shield, my Hope my great defender, (You’re) perfect in Your ways
A simple song I bring, my heart's my offering
For You alone are everything I need
I cannot find the words within me declaring what You do
My past is gone, my sin forgiven You make all things new
And when You look at me, You see
The Spirit of Yourself in me
And With new eyes I finally see Your Love

At one time I was a sinner
At one time I went astray
With each day my heart grew colder
I could not find my way
But someone sat me down and told me
Of the price You paid for me
I feel your Spirit now enfold me
And All I can do
All I can do is praise

My Lord, My king, My God, my Father, I lift my heart Praise
My Shield, My Hope my great defender, perfect in Your ways
And when You look at me, You see the Spirit of Yourself in me
With new eyes I finally see Your Love

CHRISTMAS INVITATION

Written By: JANET S. VINES

CHRISTMAS TIME IS HERE, AGAIN
ANOTHER TIME OF CHEER, AGAIN
THE CANDLE'S GLOW,
THE MISTLETOE, THE SIGHTS AND SOUNDS THAT WE ALL KNOW,
ON THIS COLD AND SNOWY CHRISTMAS EVE
OH, WHAT ABOUT THIS HOLIDAY, THE JOY OF GIVING GIFTS AWAY, I'LL TELL YOU WHAT IT MEANS TO ME

THE CHRISTMAS REMINDER IS JUST TO BE KINDER THAN ANY OTHER DAY OF THE YEAR. GENTLE WORDS THAT WE SAY AS WE GO ON OUR WAY, THAT LIFT UP THE ONES THAT ARE NEAR.

IT'S CHRISTMAS THAT'S DARING YOU GO BE SHARING THE BLESSINGS THAT YOU'VE COME TO KNOW. AND YOU CHOOSE TO FORGIVE AND TO LIVE AND LET LIVE, AS YOU HELP YOUR NEIGHBOR OUT OF THE SNOW

BRIDGE
THE SILVER BELLS RING OUT
THE CAROLERS SING OUT
THEY 'DECK THE HALLS' AND SING 'O HOLY NIGHT'
AND 'CHILDREN ARE NESTLED, VISIONS FILL THEIR HEADS' THEY CAN HARDLY WAIT FOR CHRISTMAS' MORNING LIGHT!
IT'S CHRISTMAS COMPELLING YOU AND ME TO BE TELLING JUST HOW MUCH GOD LOVED THE WHOLE WORLD, THAT HE GAVE HIS OWN SON TO SAVE US FROM SIN, EVERY MOM AND DAD, AND EVERY BOY AND GIRL

REPEAT BRIDGE

SO, TONIGHT BEFORE YOU GO TO BED AND CLOSE YOUR EYES AND REST YOUR HEAD
'CAUSE CHRISTMAS DAY IS ALMOST HERE
JESUS IS THE REASON FOR THIS HOLY CHRISTMAS SEASON
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR!

ALL THAT I HAVE IS YOU

Written By: JANET S. VINES

SEEMS THE WORLD IS GOING CRAZY
EVERYTHING WE KNEW, IT ALL HAS CHANGED
THE LINES OF RIGHT AND WRONG ARE HAZY
ONLY YOU HAVE REMAINED

FROM THE END TO THE BEGINNING
LOOKING BACK, IT SEEMS SO CLEAR
YOU CREATED ME FOR WINNING
YOU'VE ALWAYS BEEN RIGHT HERE

WHEN THERE'S NOTHING TO BELIEVE IN, WHEN THERE'S NOTHING ELSE THAT'S TRUE
WHEN THE NEWS IS BAD AND THE WORLD IS SAD, ALL I HAVE IS YOU
THROUGH THE BITTER DISAPPOINTMENT, WHEN THE SKIES ABOVE AIN'T BLUE, WHEN THE NEWS IS SAD AND THE WORLD IS BAD, ALL I HAVE IS YOU,
ALL I HAVE IS YOU, JESUS
ALL I HAVE IS YOU

YOU ARE CLOSER THAN A BROTHER
YOU KNOW ME LIKE A LOVER
LORD, ABOVE YOU THERE'S NO OTHER
ALL THAT I HAVE
ALL THAT I HAVE IS YOU!

WHEN THERE'S NOTHING TO BELIEVE IN, WHEN THERE'S NOTHING ELSE THAT'S TRUE
WHEN THE NEWS IS BAD AND THE WORLD IS SAD, ALL I HAVE IS YOU
THROUGH THE BITTER DISAPPOINTMENT, WHEN THE SKIES ABOVE AIN'T BLUE, WHEN THE NEWS IS SAD AND THE WORLD IS BAD, ALL I HAVE IS YOU,
ALL I HAVE IS YOU, JESUS
ALL I HAVE IS YOU

GIVE HIM ALL THE PRAISE

Written By: JANET S. VINES

DRIVING DOWN TO CHURCH
JUST THE OTHER DAY
READY TO TAKE MY PLACE IN THE HOUSE OF PRAISE
I TOOK MY PLACE ON STAGE
IN THE SECOND ROW
THE MINISTER OF MUSIC SAID, "NOW, HERE WE GO."
HE STARTED LEADIN OTHERS IN A SONG I'D HEARD BUT I NEVER EVEN TOOK THE TIME TO LEARN THE WORDS
JUST GOIN THROUGH THE MOTIONS, EVERY SINGLE DAY, GIVIN JUST A LITTLE EFFORT IN THE HOUSE OF PRAISE

TOSS THE LORD A PRAISE BONE
GIVE HIM HALF YOUR BEST
FORGET THE HIGHER PRAISES
YOU DESERVE A REST
DON'T PRACTICE ON YOUR INSTRUMENT
DON'T LEARN THE WORDS OR MUSIC
YOU'LL GET THAT SONG IN TIME, JUST GET USED TO IT
TOSS THE LORD A PRAISE BONE
GIVE HIM HALF YOUR BEST
FORGET THE HIGHER PRAISES
YOU NEED YOU A REST
THROW THE LORD A PRAISE BONE
IT DON'T MATTER NONE
YOU'RE JUST GIVING PRAISES TO HIS HOLY SON

I STARTED FEELING BAD ABOUT THIS, 'HALF WAY' THING
HOLY SPIRIT SAID, 'WHEN YOU PRAISE AND SING YOU CALL ME INTO WORSHIP, MAKE THE DEMONS FLEE, YOU COME INTO HIS PRESENCE, SET THE CAPTIVES FREE!

SO GIVE UP ALL YOUR EFFORT
GIVE UP ALL YOUR REST
GETS YOU INTO HIGHER PRAISE AND GETS YOU BLESSED!'

WHEN YOU TOSS THE LORD A PRAISE BONE AND YOU GIVE HIM HALF YOUR BEST AND WHEN IT'S TIME FOR OFFERING, YOU THROW HIM 50 CENTS, HIS LOVE HIS EVERLASTING, SO STOP ALL YOUR CHARADES, IT TAKES MORE THAN JUST A LITTLE EFFORT TO GIVE HIM ALL YOUR PRAISE!

GIVE THE LORD A CLAP NOW
GIVE HIM ALL YOUR BEST
STEP INTO THE HIGHER PRAISE
STEP INTO HIS REST
COME INTO HIS PRESENCE
WORSHIP GOD WITH ME
HE'S THE ALPHA AND OMEGA THE ANCIENT OF DAYS
GIVE HIM ALL YOUR PRAISE!!

OVERCOMER

Written By: JANET S. VINES

WELL, THE DEVIL CAME BY WITH A GLEAM IN HIS EYE
'SAID, 'I WANT YOUR HOME AND YOUR FAMILY.'
HE SENT ROBBERS AND THIEVES TO TRY AND TAKE FROM ME THE THINGS THAT GOD SAID HE'D PROVIDE FOR ME.

HE TRIED TO MAKE ME SICK IN MY BODY AND MIND, HE TRIED TO TAKE MY JOY AND GIVE ME PAIN, HE TRIED TO KILL MY SEED, MAKE MY FRIENDS HATE ME, TRIED TO MAKE MY PAST HAVE LIFE AGAIN!

BUT I OVERCAME HIM BY THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB
AND THE WORD OF MY TESTIMONY
(REPEAT 4 TIMES)

THE DEVIL TOLD ME LIES, 'SAID THAT I WOULD DIE
HE SAID, 'YOU GOT SOME DEADLY, DREAD DISEASE.' HE SAID, 'YOU'RE A JERK, NOTHING YOU DO WORKS, I'LL ROB YOU OF YOUR INTEGRITY.'

BRIDGE
BUT THE LORD IS MY LIGHT HE UPHOLDS THE RIGHT AND HE'S WALKIN THIS ROAD ALL THE WAY WITH ME
THE DEVIL IS DONE AND THE VICTORY'S WON BECAUSE THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB HAS SET ME FREE!
THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB HAS SET ME FREE!
THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB HAS MADE ME FREE!

AND WE OVERCAME HIM BY THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB AND THE WORD OF OUR TESTIMONY
(REPEAT 4 TIMES)

HAVIN' FUN SERVIN' JESUS

Written By: JANET S. VINES

I HIT THE FLOOR RUNNIN
WHEN I WAS 22
I HAD MY EYES ON THE PRIZE AND I KNEW WHAT I WAS CALLED TO DO

CAME TO THE CONCLUSION
THAT WHAT I NEVER DID
WAS LIVE WITH RECKLESS ABANDON
I NEVER LEARNED HOW TO BE A KID

NOW I'M RUNNIN WITH THE HORSES
AND I'M LAUGHIN AT THE SKY
I'VE GOT THE FAITH TO TAKE CHANCES
I BELIEVE I CAN FLY

IF YOU AIN'T HAVIN FUN SERVIN JESUS
IF YOU AIN'T SINGIN HIM YOU'RE SONG
IF YOU AIN'T LIVING LIFE LIKE YOU'RE DYIN, 'CAUSE OUR DAYS DOWN HERE AIN'T LONG
JESUS DANCED AT THE WEDDING FEAST, AND IT'S HIS JOY THAT MAKES YOU STRONG!
IF YOU AIN'T HAVIN FUN SERVIN JESUS, YOU'RE DOIN IT WRONG!

ALL THE KING'S HORSES

Written By: JANET S. VINES, CHRISTOPHER GUNN

IN A FAIRY TALE WORLD
THINGS ARE PERFECTLY FINE
PROBLEMS ARE SOLVED IN A MOMENT IN TIME
THE PRINCE GETS THE PRINCESS, THE POOR GET THE GOLD, AND THE HEROES ARE BRAVE AND BOLD, AT LEAST THAT'S HOW THE FAIRY TALE'S TOLD.

A LONG TIME AGO, FROM A PLACE FAR AWAY, ANOTHER MAN CAME TO CHASE TROUBLES AWAY. HIS NAME WAS 'REDEEMER' THE 'LION AND THE LAMB' AND HE WAS THE CHAMPION FOR THE SOULS OF ALL MAN

HE WAS A PREACHER AND GENTLE AND KIND. HE HEALED THE SICK AND GAVE SIGHT TO THE BLIND. HE PROMISED HIS FATHER HE'D DO ALL HE CAN, EVEN GIVE UP HIS LIFE FOR THE SOULS OF ALL MAN

THE PRINCE OF THE DARKNESS, OR SO IT IS SAID, A LONG TIME AGO, PUT A PRICE ON HIS HEAD. HE PLOTTED AND PLANNED OF HIS DEATH, CRUCIFY! HE TOLD ALL OF THE KINGDOM REDEEMER HAD LIED.

BRIDGE
SO THEY BRUISED HIM AND BEAT HIM AND NAILED TO A TREE. HE BLESSED THEIR MISGIVINGS AND DIED THERE, YOU SEE. ALL THE KING'S HORSES AND ALL THE KING'S MEN, COULD NOT PUT REDEEMER TOGETHER AGAIN.

BURIED WAS HE IN A STONE-COVERED CAVE. ONLY A FEW KNEW THE PRICE THAT HE PAID. FOR HE KEPT HIS PROMISE WHEN HE ROSE AGAIN. AND HE GAVE UP HIS LIFE FOR THE SOULS OF ALL MEN.

REPEAT BRIDGE

BURIED WAS HE IN A STONE-COVERED CAVE. ONLY A FEW KNEW THE PRICE THAT HE PAID. FOR HE KEPT HIS PROMISE WHEN HE ROSE AGAIN. AND HE GAVE UP HIS LIFE FOR THE SOULS OF ALL MEN.
YES, HE GAVE UP HIS LIFE FOR THE SOULS, OF ALL MEN.
