A fresh sound with inspirational words that come straight from the heart. With a strong background in folk music, I want my songs to be easy listening, have strong harmonies that make you tingle, and be able minister to the needs of people.

Biography

I have been playing music since I was 11 years old. I developed an early interest in folk music and later contemporary Christian, Gospel and Praise music. As an Architect by profession, I'm by no means a professional musician but I have been insprired to write songs that I believe have a true message for people. I would love that my songs be performed so others could hear.

Decisions (The Right Things To Do)

DECISIONS
(The Right Things to Do)
Words & Music: Marc Guerrette – July 2005
Copyright 2006 – Marc Guerrette (Anesis Music)

It wasn’t always easy, it wasn’t always fun.
Looking back on life’s long road, and all the things that were done.
So many off-ramps we could have taken, so many choices we had to choose.
At times not knowing what’s to gain, and knowing what’s to loose.

Now every day’s a new day, advice to keep in mind.
And with every step we take ahead and leave the one’s behind.
We struggle over what we decide while taking life’s love test.
So rest assured and be at peace, it’ll work out for the best.

Ref 1:
We can’t waste time second-guessing, or our future we’ll be missing.
We got to try not to think about, the things that might have been.
We can’t be sad or feeling blue
But know deep down inside …… they were the right things to do.

As we look out on that sunset, somewhere there is a sunrise.
Though we’ll never know what’s around that corner, one of life’s big surprise.
We can’t be afraid to make decisions when they rest upon our love.
When peaceful waters flow un-ending, we’ll know it’s from above.

Ref 1:
We can’t waste time second-guessing, or our future we’ll be missing.
We got to try not to think about, the things that might have been.
We can’t be sad or feeling blue
But know deep down inside …… they were the right things to do.

Ref 2:
And to our next generation, for their youth is for our blessing.
We held their hearts and their little hands; they made us laugh and made us cry.
Our hopes and dreams are with them.
And when we look into their eyes….. They were right things to do.

They were right things to do
They were right things to do
They were right things to do

That's When I'm Going Home

THAT’S WHEN I’M GOING HOME
Words and Music: Marc Guerrette
Copyright 2006 – Marc Guerrette (Anesis Music)

WHEN I THINK ABOUT THE HOPE OF CHRIST’S RETURN
THERE IS NO GREATER JOY THAT I YEARN
IN THE TWINKLING OF AN EYE, I’LL MEET HIM IN THE SKY
THAT’S WHEN I’LL KNOW, THAT’S WHEN I’LL KNOW,
THAT’S WHEN I’M GOING HOME

I WILL LIVE WITH HIM IN GLORY EVERMORE
MY DYING EARTHLY BODY BE TRANSFORMED
WHEN I HEAR THE SOUNDING HORN, AND DEATH SHALL BE NO MORE
THAT’S WHEN I’LL KNOW, THAT’S WHEN I’LL KNOW,
THAT’S WHEN I’M GOING HOME

CORRUPTION SHALL PUT ON INCORRUPTION
MORTALITY - IMORTALITY
THE DEAD IN CHRIST SHALL RISE, I’LL OPEN UP MY EYES
THAT’S WHEN I’LL KNOW, THAT’S WHEN I’LL KNOW,
THAT’S WHEN I’M GOING HOME

COMFORT ONE ANOTHER WITH THESE WORDS
THE’RE MORE THAN A DELIGHT TO BE HEARD
IN A MOMENT OF OUR TIME, WE’LL SEE HIS GLORY SHINE
THAT’S WHEN I’LL KNOW, THAT’S WHEN I’LL KNOW
THAT’S WHEN I’M GOING HOME

Because I Love You

Written By: Marc Guerrette

Because I Love You
Words & Music: Marc Guerrette - December 2004
Copyright 2006 – Marc Guerrette (Anesis Music)


I want to walk with you and hold you by your hand
I want for me to grow, and the reason that I wanted you to know
Because I love You

I want to hear your voice and follow your commands.
You gave me seeds to sow, and the reason that I wanted you to know
Because I love You

Refrain:
‘Cause words cannot express the way I love You

I want to be like you in every way I can
And see your glory glow, and the reason that I wanted you to know
Because I love You

I want to preach your Word and heal the sick and lame
You sent me to go, and the reason that I wanted you to know
Because I love You

Refrain:
‘Cause words cannot express the way I love you

Bridge:
How can the finite explain the infinite greatness you are
The sun, moon, and stars, great expanses, but you’re never too far.

I want to worship you and praise your holy name
As men did long ago, and the reason that I wanted you to know
Because I love You

I want to sing to you with gladness in my heart
Sounds in my ear echo, and the reason that I wanted you to know
Because I love You

Refrain:
‘Cause words cannot express….words cannot express….
Words cannot express the way I love You.

For God So Loved the World

FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD
(Words by Marc Guerrette/Tom Smith – Music by Marc Guerrette, October 2004)
Copyright 2006 – Marc Guerrette/Tom Smith – Anesis Music


WE ALL CAME FROM THE SAME PLACE AND TIME
NOWHERE TO GO CAUSE WE SPENT OUR LAST DIME
WE SET OUT SEEKING FORTUNE AND FAME
BUT IN THE END PEOPLE DIDN’T KNOW OUR OWN NAME

REF
BUT THEN HE GAVE US LIFE, LIFE MORE ABUNDANTLY
WITH JESUS CHRIST, THE WAY TRUTH AND LIFE
GOD RAISED HIM SO WE COULD BE FREE INDEED
SO TELL EVERYBODY THAT GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD ……

THAT HE GAVE US HIS SON, THAT HE GAVE US HIS SON,
THAT HE GAVE US HIS SON, THAT HE GAVE US HIS SON

WITHOUT GOD, WITHOUT HOPE IN THIS WORLD
PLAYED LIFE’S GAME, SPUN THE WHEEL, AND TOOK A TWIRL
BUT THEN WE HEARD SALVATION’S PLAN
WE BELIEVED GOD’S WORD AND NOW WE STAND

HE BROUGHT US FROM DARKNESS INTO THE LIGHT
SPIRITUALLY BLIND BUT HE GAVE US OUR SIGHT
BOUGHT WITH A PRICE, OUR LIVES ARE NOT OUR OWN
GOD GAVE THE INCREASE FROM THE SEEDS WE’VE SOWN

I'm Building You A Home

Written By: Marc Guerrette

I’M BUILDING YOU A HOME
Words and Music by Marc Guerrette, November 2004
Copyright 2006 – Marc Guerrette - Anesis Music

I’VE BUILT MANY HOMES FOR MAMA’S AND DADS
BUT NEVER HAD TIME FOR YOU
AND THEN I SAW WHAT YOUR SON DID FOR ME
NOW HERE’S WHAT I’M PLANNING TO DO

I’LL START BY DIGGING AND TAKING OUT ROCK
FROM THE YEARS THAT HAVE CALACED MY HEART
AND BRING IN GOOD SOIL THAT IS STABLE AND FIRM
MADE FROM TRANSFORMING MY THOUGHTS

REF:
YOU’VE SAID THAT WALLS COULD NEVER CONTAIN YOU
THE HEAVENS AND EARTH COMBINED
YOU’VE ALWAYS WANTED A PLACE IN MAN’S HEART
SO I’M BUILDING YOU A HOME IN MINE.

I’LL FORM A FOOTING, A FOUNDATION THAT’S STRONG
BY FILLING THE RUTS OF MY PAST
AND POUR THE CEMENT OF YOUR WONDERFULL LOVE
GREAT WEIGHT IT WILL BEAR FROM THIS CAST

I’LL FRAME A GREAT SPAN SHEATHED WITH MERCY AND GRACE
RAYS OF TRUTH WILL NEVER BE BLOCKED
AND SET A GREAT DOOR FOR YOU TO WALK IN
A DOOR THAT WILL NEVER BE LOCKED.

I Finally Came Back To You

Written By: Marc Guerrette

I FINALLY CAME BACK TO YOU
Words and Music by Marc Guerrette - October 2004
Copyright 2006 – Marc Guerrette – Anesis Music

WELL I PUT MY HEART FOR YOU ON A SHELF
‘CAUSE I THOUGHT I COULD DO IT MYSELF
COLLECTING DUST, RUST AND STAINS
FROM A LIFE FILLED WITH MY PAINS

Bridge:
BUT YOU PICKED ME UP WHEN I FELL ON MY FACE
YOU SHOWED ME YOUR LOVE AND YOUR GRACE
I HAD FORGOTTEN FROM ALL I’VE BEEN THROUGH
YOUR WORD HAD TO BE TRUE …
BUT I FINALLY CAME BACK TO YOU

WELL YOUR TRUTH WAS RIGHT THERE BUT I TURNED MY BACK
SEARCHING FOR WORLDY FACTS
FROM THE PEOPLE I HEARD AND THE BOOKS THAT I READ
FROM MAN’S WISDOM I CONSTANTLY FED.

Bridge:
BUT YOU PICKED ME UP WHEN I FELL ON MY FACE
YOU SHOWED ME YOUR LOVE AND YOUR GRACE
I HAD FORGOTTEN FROM ALL I’VE BEEN THROUGH
YOUR WORD HAD TO BE TRUE …..
BUT I FINALLY CAME BACK TO YOU

Refrain:
HERE WITH YOU IS WHERE I WANT TO BE
HERE WITH YOU IS WHAT YOU MEANT FOR ME
I WAS LOST BUT NOW I’M FOUND
‘CAUSE I FINALLY CAME BACK TO YOU

WELL I KNEW THAT YOU’D CARED FOR MY EVERY NEED
BUT I MY EYES GOT REAL BIG WITH MY GREED
YOU SAID TO PATIENTLY WAIT UPON YOU
BUT INSTEAD MY ANXIETIES GREW

Bridge:
YOU PICKED ME UP WHEN I FELL ON MY FACE
YOU SHOWED ME YOUR LOVE AND YOUR GRACE
I HAD FORGOTTEN FROM ALL I’VE BEEN THROUGH
YOUR WORD HAD TO BE TRUE …
BUT I FINALLY CAME BACK TO YOU

Refrain:
HERE WITH YOU IS WHERE I WANT TO BE
HERE WITH YOU IS WHAT YOU MEANT FOR ME
I WAS LOST BUT NOW I’M FOUND
‘CAUSE I FINALLY CAME BACK TO YOU
‘CAUSE I FINALLY CAME BACK TO YOU
