Come & Worship
Growing up in Conneaut, Ohio, I remember as a little boy lying on my belly getting as close as I could to a single 4 inch speaker on an old 78 rpm record player, and soaking in the sounds of Tennessee Ernie Ford, Gene Autry, and Chubby Checker, dreaming of one day singing for others. In 1986 the Lord introduced Himself to me and took me in. He gave me a home, and He gave me a place of rest. He gave me a place of understanding, and He gave me a place of comfort. He gave me a place of forgiveness, and above all, He gave me a place of hope. If this wasn\'t enough, He gave me a place where I could trust beyond the shadow of a doubt that \'there is no power that can conquer me while God is on my side. I\'ll just take Him at His promise, and never run and hide.\' (Lyrics to \'It Is No Secret\'-Stuart Hamblin) Since that time, with the assistance of so many by our side, Nancy and I, as individuals, and as a couple, have done our best to live by that promise. Still today, the Lord has never let us down, never turned us away, and never let us settle for second best. Daily, we thank Him for His provision, His grace, and His love. THIS IS WHY I SING! This is why I sing for Him, and this is why I sing for you. Thank you for listening! My newest album is a wonderful blend of Contemporary Christian with Southern Gospel, and it takes listeners to the throne of God and into the heart of worship right from the start. With a message and melody of hope and promise, \'Come & Worship\' will bring rest to the heart and strength, peace, and joy to the soul. Song selections include: Amazing Grace (My Chains Are Gone); Lily of the Valley; I Am Bound For The Promised Land; The Anchor Holds; Mary Did You Know, and more. Dear friend, He has called you by name, now \'Come & Worship.\'
