Arizona Dranes - He is my story

<< < (2/3) > >>

dj:
Could the third line of the first verse be "Telling the tender old story, Christ on the cross I proclaim"?

banjochris:
I found this website that fills in some of the gaps I would suggest "Onward today" as what she's singing at the beginning, however:
http://www.gospellighthouseoutreach.com/fellowshiphall/?q=song-words/my%20song%20and%20story

Homeward today I am going, Seeing my Saviour's bright smile; Love is my heart overflowing, Happy am I all the while. Telling the tender old story, Christ to the lost I proclaim; He is my song and my story, Bless His name.

He is my story, He is my song, Sweetly I praise Him All the day long, Ever His mercy I will proclaim; Till I behold Him in glory, Bless His all-glorious, wonderful name.

Coming from heaven He sought me, Found me in bondage of sin, Out of the darkness He brought me, Banished the guilt from within; Now to His love I am clinging, Gems for His crown is my aim; Ever of Him I am singing, Bless His name.

He is my story, He is my song, Sweetly I praise Him All the day long, Ever His mercy I will proclaim; Till I behold Him in glory, Bless His all-glorious, wonderful name.

Safe to the gates He will take me, Shielding my soul with His love; Never my Friend will forsake me, I shall be with Him above. All through eternity's morning, Part of His throne I may claim, And, with the life-crown adorning, Bless His all-glorious wonderful name.

He is my story, He is my song, Sweetly I praise Him All the day long, Ever His mercy I will proclaim; Till I behold Him in glory, Bless His all-glorious, wonderful name.

Johnm:
I'm sorry to have been slow responding to the suggestions that have been made for the lyrics to "He Is My Story". I picked up Old Man Ned's suggestion for the beginning of the second and third lines in the second verse, as well as changes to the first verse and chorus that Chris supplied. I believe there are only two blank spaces left--one in verse one, where Arizona Dranes strays from the lyrics that Chris found and in the second verse, third line after the opening of that line that Old Man Ned supplied. I think if we can get those two places we will have it. Thanks for any help.
All best,
Johnm

waxwing:
In the first verse I agree with dj that it sounds like "Christ on the" but followed by either "shore" (a reference to the loaves and fishes, or walking on water, perhaps) or "job". Phonetically it sorta sounds like "shorb", but I think the faint "B" sound is from a vocal tap to start the "I" of "I proclaim." also I think the end of the first verse is "Bless His Name", similar to the chorus.

In the final verse the missing bit sounds like "and salvation".

Johnm:
Thanks for the help, wax. I think you're right on about the end of the first verse, and I think "and salvation" fills the missing space in the last verse. Thanks!
All best,
Johnm
