Biography

I have gone to India 3 years in a row and I am so blessed everytime I go. The first year I sang "Worthy Is The Lamb", "Shout to The Lord" and "Here I Am to Worship" before 26,000 people. What an impact that has had on my life. Some of the influences on the music I write are Casting Crowns, Chris Tomlin, Steven Curtis Chapman, Natalie Grant, but my voice has been described by others to be angelic, which if they only knew me well enough that would be another story :). Hey I will be the first to admit I am a late starter. I didn't start writing music until I was almost 30. My first CD in 2004 I was pushing 40! Recently, I finished a Bible study on the Life of Peter called, "The Leader Who Followed"; which is an 8 week study. I wrote several songs out of this study. One is called, "A Higher Place". I believe God can use whomever He wants, which is why I started playing the guitar in April of 2008 and have already led worship for a women's conference and on mission trips. My life motto is: do what I can't the best way I can because..... "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." (Phil 4:13)

Lyrics

Bound By His Love

Written By: Sherry Budd

Are you suffering inside
Giving up is on your mind
Everything you’re going through
He’s watching over you

Jesus walked this road before
Knows the feelings you endure
He will meet you anywhere
Your burdens He will bear

Call on Him, He’s awaiting you,

For He is bound, bound by His love for you
There is nothing, nothing He would not do
He gave up His life, no greater sacrifice
His heart and His hands were bound
By His love for you

God’s reasons are so high
We may never know just why
When troubles come our way
His love will not delay

His promises are clear
Ev’ry word is sincere
Whatever you may do
He always there for you

Call on Him, He’s awaiting you,

For He is bound, bound by His love for you
There is nothing, nothing He would not do
He gave up His life, no greater sacrifice
His heart and His hands were bound

He will never turn away
Never turn away
Never turn away His love for you (2x)

For He is bound, bound by His love for you
There is nothing, nothing He would not do
He gave up His life, no greater sacrifice
His heart and His hands were bound
His heart and His hands were bound
His heart and His hands were bound
By His love for you

Eyes of Faith

Written By: Sherry L Budd

Eyes of Faith

Whether there’s proof that I can see
And whether time reveals the truth to me
I have to trust You know what you’re doing in my life

And whether I can ever understand
The way you’re working out your sovereign plan
I have to trust nothing happens before passing you by

(Chorus)
So give me
The eyes of faith to see your mighty hand
The eyes of faith to believe and take a stand
Oh the eyes of faith to walk in your ways
And step out each day with the eyes of faith

Whether there’s questions or doubts on my mind
And whether I’m ever given a sign
I have to trust You know what you’re doing in my life

And whether it comes down to life or death
And it may be my very last breath
I have to trust nothing happens before passing you by

(Chorus)
So give me
The eyes of faith to see your mighty hand
The eyes of faith to believe and take a stand
Oh the eyes of faith to walk in your ways
And step out each day with the eyes of faith

And even when I stumble
And turn and walk away
Draw me to your sweet side Jesus
And give me the eyes of faith

To see your mighty hand, to believe and take a stand
To walk in your ways and step out each day
To walk in your ways and step out each day
To walk in your ways and step out each day with the eyes of faith

(Chorus)
So give me
The eyes of faith to see your mighty hand
The eyes of faith to believe and take a stand
Oh the eyes of faith to walk in your ways
And step out each day with the eyes of faith

Nearer to Your Heart

Written By: Sherry L Budd


There’s a longing deep within
To be nearer to You Lord
To be close enough to hear You When You whisper to my heart Sometimes it’s hard to hear You When I’m singing my own song
So with Your loving arms
Draw me nearer Lord
To You and You alone

Draw me nearer, nearer to Your heart
Draw me nearer Lord to You
Draw me nearer, nearer to Your heart
With Your loving arms
Draw me nearer to Your heart

There’s a longing deep within
To be pleasing Lord to You
To delight Your holy heart With a fragrance fresh and new
Showing others Your sweet mercy Letting Your light shine through
So with Your loving arms
Draw me nearer Lord
Nearer Lord to You

Draw me nearer, nearer to Your heart
Draw me nearer Lord to You
Draw me nearer, nearer to Your heart
With Your loving arms
Draw me nearer to Your heart

There’s a struggle deep within me I do what I don’t want to do But my heart is saying Father I want to live my life for You

Draw me nearer, nearer to Your heart
Draw me nearer Lord to You
Draw me nearer, nearer to Your heart
With Your loving arms
Draw me nearer to
Draw me nearer, nearer to Your heart
Draw me nearer Lord to You
Draw me nearer, nearer to Your heart
With Your loving arms
Draw me nearer to, nearer to Your heart
