BandChristianAdult Contemporary

Original Christian music. If I had to put it into a genre I would say Adult Contemporary. All of the songs have a good message and melody. There are tears and cheers everywhere I sing!

Biography

I was raised in southern Ohio on country and bluegrass. I learned to play guitar at 15 and played in a bluegrass band for seven years. When I switched from Catholic to a non-denominational church I fellin love with praise and worship music. At that time I began writing faith based songs and before I knew it I had enough for a CD. At this time I am trying to reach as many people as possible with this message. Whether I reach a million people or a hundred, as long as it is His will it is a success.

Lyrics

The Angel By My Side

Written By: Steve Shelton

Walking through the darkness of this world alone,
Never looking for a meaning in my life.
Then you came and took me by the hand and led me home.
And ended years of wondering in hopeless pain and strife
And now looking back I see the man I used to be,
And I know without a doubt now that he sent you just for me

Chorus:
And I thank God He sent you to me.
You saved from my ways
And every night upon my knees Oh Lord
And pray for one more day
I won’t fall with you in my life.
I was saved by the Blood of The Lamb
And the Angel by my side.

Looking through the window of a nursery
A new Dad scared to death of future years
There’s a face that looks quite like mine staring back at me.
Oh God don’t let her see my doubts, don’t let her see my fears

Then I catch A glimpse of myself
Right there in sleepy eyes
What I was, what I am now
And I know I’ll be alright

Chorus:

Staring right at thirty, what if you had run away
Would I have a place in heaven, would I be alive today?

Chorus:

I was saved by the Blood of The Lamb
And the Angel by my side

When I Hear You Speak

Written By: Steve Shelton ASCAP

I have heard you call my name,
When I look there's no one there,
At times I'm overcome by grace,
And I'm still as I kneel there,
you hear my thoughts without a sound,
And know my need bfore I do,
I feel your presence all around,
And find myself in awe of you.
When I hear you speak,
So real inside my heart I cannot breathe.
Your holding me,
When I'm alone with thee.
It seems your there when I'm in need,
My closest friend in which I'm sure.
I can feel when you join me.
It's then that I will speak no more.
What for? You know my soul, and I'm right at heavens door.
When I hear you speak,
So real inside my heart I cannot breathe.
Your holding me,
You know my heart, you know my needs, know everything why would I speak?
When I hear you speak,
So real inside my heart I cannot breathe.
Your holding me,
When I'm alone with thee.
