Rainbow Blues

A song of opening awareness, expanding consciousness, and gratitude. Love is always with us! But to recognize it, we must be open to it. On guitar, with my right pinkie and ring finger feeling much better. 🙂

1. I remember my life without You (2x).
The raging storm and clouds of hopeless blue.

2. Through the darkness came a single ray of sun.
Through all that darkness came a single ray of sun.
Your strong and tender Presence gave me one.

3. And all Your Love came pouring down on me.
All Your Love just came pouring down on me.
You paint my heart a rainbow pure and sweet.

4. OOO the rainbow of Your Love is all I see.
That precious rainbow of Your Love is all I see.
And saddest blue, it’s got no place with me.

‘Cause that precious rainbow of Your Love is all I see.
And saddest blue, it’s got no place with me.

Salty Tears

I’ll have a guitar tune next week, if my fingers are well enough. Meanwhile, I’ve been so grateful for being able to play at all, and for wonderful ukulele songs these past few weeks. The show must go on, and so it does, only by God’s grace!

(Capo 2)

1. With a lump in my throat,
I think I’ll never speak again.
It hurts to lose a loved one,
But relationships must end.
It tears my heart to pieces,
And it happens every time.
My heart is soft to offer comfort
When another cries.
Refrain:

2. Here I stand, on the edge,
But I don’t know which way to go.
If I turn around, I’m staying;
If I jump, I fall below.
It tears my mind to pieces,
And it happens more and more.
My mind sees burning bridges
Where my God sees open doors.
Refrain:

3. I wonder if His recipe
Is miracles and love,
‘Cause they are all that get us through
When times are dark and tough.
It lights my heart with gladness
And my mind with peace and cheer,
As every day in touching ways,
God uses salty tears.
Refrain:

Use our salty tears.

Refrain:
Our salty tears add flavor
To this banquet we call life.
We’ve got to taste the bitter
For the sweetness to arise.
We don’t savor all the courses,
Like the loss and pain and fears.
But God’s the master chef,
And He can use our salty tears.
