ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
for more information about Light My Step Music - email: lightmystepmusic@gmail.com

Light My Step Music is a group of Christian composers and musicians who create songs to remind us we are loved by God.

This collection of songs was inspired by sacred scripture, psalms, traditional hymns and prayers, and our own experience of walking in faith and trusting in God's love.

Happy Are They (Thomas Wayne and Daniel Gordon)
Psalm 1 sets out two patterns for living – one that finds delight in trusting God’s love, and one that doesn’t.
“Happy are they who trust in love of the Lord” is the refrain.
The verses are drawn from Matthew’s Beatitudes and Psalm 96.

Savior Precious Savior (Chris Eaton, John Hartley, Thomas Wayne)
Original text by Frances R. Havergal.

Glory to God (Thomas Wayne and Daniel Gordon)
The Gloria is the most ancient of the Church’s liturgical hymns.

Create in Me (Thomas Wayne and Daniel Gordon)
Psalm 51

Teach Me to Pray (Thomas Wayne)
Original text by John Hopps, we added a refrain after each verse.

O Love That Will Not Let Me Go (Thomas Wayne)
Original Text by George Matheson

"O Love That Wilt Not Let Me Go" was written on the evening of Matheson’s sister’s marriage. Years before, he had been engaged, until his fiancee learned that he was going blind—that there was nothing the doctors could do—and she told him that she could not go through life with a blind man. He went blind while studying for the ministry, and his sister had been the one to care for him through the years, but now she was gone. He was now 40, and his sister’s marriage brought a fresh reminder of his own heartbreak. It was in the midst of this circumstance and intense sadness that the Lord gave Matheson this hymn, which he said was written in five minutes.
"I am quite sure that the whole work was completed in five minutes, and equally sure that it never received at my hands any retouching or correction. I have no natural gift of rhythm. All the other verses I have ever written are manufactured articles; this came like a dayspring from on high."

In That Moment (Thomas Wayne and Daniel Gordon)
The story of Christ’s birth begins with Mary’s great yes, and in that moment, the world knew love...

He Lifted Me (Thomas Wayne)
Original Text by Charles H. Gabriel

I Will (Thomas Wayne)
Dedicated to David Ensign and Cheryl Lederle and Clarendon Presbyterian Church.

Choirs of Angels (Thomas Wayne and Daniel Gordon)
A song of comfort calling on "Choirs of Angels" to carry our loved ones to heaven (paradise)

The Lord is My Shepherd (Thomas Wayne)
Psalm 23

We Are A People of Hope (Thomas Wayne and Daniel Gordon)
In a crazy world,
We, are a people of hope... joyfully singing, faithfully clinging,
to the promise God made at our birth
We, are the children of God... hungry for justice, filled with compassion,
We are a people of hope...

Kathy Parsons

From MainlyPiano
Happy Are They is the debut album by Light My Step, “a group of Christian composers and musicians who create songs to remind us we are loved by God” (quoted from their Facebook Musician page). Some of the thirteen Contemporary Christian songs were inspired by scripture, traditional prayers and hymns, and others were born out of the artists’ own experience of walking in faith and trusting in God’s love. The songs were written by Thomas Wayne and Daniel Gordon , but the musicians who actually play and sing on the recording are uncredited by name.

A more uplifting album would be difficult to find, with songs that call for peace, express hope, and witness to the power of faith and love. Most of the instrumentation is fairly uncomplicated - primarily keyboards, guitar, and percussion - allowing the message of the words to stay in the forefront. The melodies and instrumentation are beautiful. There are rock and country influences in most of the songs (as is common with Contemporary Christian music), so this album should appeal to a broad range of age groups and Christian denominations.

With all of the turbulence, hate, fear, and uncertainty in today’s world, Happy Are They offers a very welcome respite with this collection of warm and soothing messages of hope, faith and love. I know that not everyone is receptive to this kind of music, but if you are, I highly recommend Happy Are They and look forward to hearing more from Light My Step in the future.
