My Compositions

I’ve enjoyed composing a little music now and then over the years. Here are a few examples for your listening and performing enjoyment.

Shout – Psalm 150


The Path of the Righteous


Simple Song

  • A (Christian country-pop?) song I wrote kind of last minute because The Gingrichs were headed into the recording studio and we needed another song for our album. It turned out to be perhaps the least-simple song on the album. It sounded a bit too slick and shallow at first to me, so I added an instrumental bridge that explores new chords and rhythms. From the Step Right Up album (2002).

We Fix Our Eyes (2 Corinthians 4:18)


Sunday Night Rag


Before  All Things (Colossians 1:15-20)

  • This is a Scripture song that I composed in April, 2020 as our church enjoyed a sermon series from Colossians.
  • I didn’t write a score, but lyrics are included on the YouTube description. I recruited my daughters to help me make this video so we could teach it to our church during coronavirus online church.

Maybe sometime I’ll add a few more here–such as  “A Fine Summer Day in November,” a Hank Williams-inspired downer which hasn’t blessed anyone but has provoked a few groans and/or smiles.

Stay tuned for more (pun intended).

    1. Hi Mary Ann. I’m glad you like the song! Actually, yes, I do now have a score for this song.

      You are welcome to sing the song by ear for free, learning it from the video above. The lyrics are Scripture and I won’t stop anyone from using them for non-profit purposes.

      If you want a copy of the score, I’d be happy to email you a copy, for a cost of $1 for each copy of the score that you expect to print. I’ll email you with more information. Thanks!
