You are my Saviour, Lord Jesus Christ Truth is the greatest gift of all People of all nations can have Salvation Truth is the greatest gift of all I went out searching looking for answers Something to lift me from the fall I kept on seeking, wrong roads then right roads I knocked and You answered my call You are my Saviour, Lord Jesus Christ Truth is the greatest gift of all People of all nations can have Salvation Truth is the greatest gift of all I read the wrong books, man's philosophies And realised they were not the truth of all Then I heard Your word, it cut just like a sword I realised that You had paid it all. You are my Saviour, Lord Jesus Christ Truth is the greatest gift of all People of all nations can have Salvation Truth is the greatest gift of all West Coast then East Coast What does it matter? I asked, You answered my call You are the Truth, all glory to You You're The One who helps me stand up tall You are my Saviour, Lord Jesus Christ Truth is the greatest gift of all People of all nations can have salvation Truth is the greatest gift of all

The Solution 05:34
You talk about revolution You talk about evolution You say you've found solution I still see dissolution I don't see much justice I don't see much justice You talk about tomorrow And watch your stocks and bonds grow But there's starvation still though I still see so much sorrow I don't see much justice I don't see much justice But I testify, I testify I testify The solution is Christ You talk of celebrity And those people on T.V But it's just vanity They are not really free I don't see much justice I don't see much justice You talk of empty things And that which money brings You wear expensive rings But don't know the King of Kings I don't see much justice I don't hear much justice But I testify, I testify I testify The solution is Christ So much injustice in the world So many lies in this world So much delusion So much confusion So much destruction in the world But it's a narrow way to make your way home You rant and speak your mind Not knowing that you're blind salvation was designed With even you in mind I don't see much just justice But there will be justice You search for earthly pleasures Call yourself a man of leisure Maybe you've found your treasure? There's love that you can't measure You can't see justice But there will be justice For I testify, I testify I testify The solution is Christ For I testify, I testify I testify Salvation happens through Christ

Winter's gone and springtime's here it's time to spread some cheer Nights spent by the fireside gone for another year You don't seem so happy though you seem quite upset Summer nights not long to go How can you forget? Don't suppress your love this time Don't suppress your love Your need to love is not a crime Don't suppress your love Wintertime the elements can be most unkind Trouble finding point of view trouble with your mind But don't you let your faculties slip in any way Spring has sprung, the nights are long Cherish every day Don't suppress your love this time Don't suppress your love Your need to love is not a crime Don't suppress your love Look around there's beauty everywhere Look around there's God's creation everywhere The mountains and the valleys and the sea God created all this for us Can't you see? Don't suppress your love this time Don't suppress your love Your need to love is not a crime Don't suppress your love

Away in the sky one day we'll be All the believers finally free Deep gentle comfort serenity Knowing our pain is gone and we're free But until then we'll just have to wait And try to show others the straight narrow gate And show the lost they are not free Away in the sky some day we'll be Away in the sky one day we'll be Up with The Lord , That great Prophecy Just like The Cross were His Blood was spilled All of God's Scripture will be fulfilled Away in the sky one day we'll be There with The Lord finally free Up in the clouds, away in the sky Away, away in the sky Away in the sky one day we'll be There with The Lord, finally free Up in the clouds, There with The Lord Away, away in the sky Away in the sky some day we'll be There with the Lord finally free Deep gentle comfort serenity Up with The Lord, Finally free

No you can't lose your salvation Once you're saved you're always saved. When you know Christ as your Saviour The scene is set, the way is paved. If you had to work to keep it then it could not be called free For Christ paid it all already On the Cross at Calvary You can't lose it Once you choose it No you can't lose your salvation You can't lose it Once you choose it No you can't lose your salvation No you can't lose your salvation Once you call upon The Son For a change takes place within you That can never be undone. When The Holy Spirit enters He'll be with you then always For God gives us His assurance Peace of mind for all our days. You can't lose it Once you choose it No you can't lose your salvation You can't loose it Once you choose it No you can't lose your salvation

Looking back over the years when I was a younger man I looked in all of the wrong places to find love I was looking to find that special one But I was made to wait to find love I was guided through I was guided to you The Lord He guided me through I thank Him each day Looking back when I was young I saw the world differently I could see something wrong about this place And I always found it so hard to just sit comfortably When so many people's lives were going to waste I was guided through I was guided to you The Lord He guided me through I thank Him each day Well I suppose that you could say that I've been lucky But I know that there's been angels on the way And I know that you can say that I'm a lucky man But the more blessings I get the more I pray Looking back to the time The Comforter came to me Everything was different from that day And as I grew in faith I became vigilant I grew in strength, My fear had gone away

Night attacks day as moonlight invades Alighting the hills and the valleys I live in a town in the hills near Geneva That's home to a heavenly choir And when they sing and the piano plays I'm taken away from the valleys Taken away to a magical place That's far from it all Daylight holds out, the sky turns magenta As brilliant stars glitter brightly This town where I live in the hills near Geneva Is suddenly under a spell. A kaleidoscope of colour and joy Radiates over the valleys As the orchestra plays a chorus of colours A landscape of musical bliss And the symphony of a thousand dreams The notably beautiful young violinist Plays with such poise and conviction She speaks to my heart with Her wonderful gift And takes me away from it all The audience offers total surrender As the symphony reaches conclusion I look to the west with my head in the clouds I'm taken away from it all And the symphony of a thousand dreams Later I find myself down by the river Over the bridge and the valleys I look to the hills and think to myself Someday this will all turn to dust Everything's real yet seams like a dream As raindrops fall down from The Heavens And then it hits me for it's there in The Scriptures Dark and Light can't coexist And the symphony of a thousand dreams

about

I am pleased to announce the release of my fourth album, Parameters.

As with most of my music, it is littered with average singing and pretty loose musicianship (by me not the other musicians!) But there is a clear message there that shines through and everything is at least a bit broken in this world anyway!

The album is dedicated to my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ who has blessed me abundantly in so many ways.

Thank you to my darling wife Rachel and to my Family and friends, new and old alike, who have encouraged me on this journey.

Thank you to the radio presenters/producers/station mangers who have supported me over the years by playing my songs or by helping to make it happen.

Thanks to Carlos Ramsey of Wimpole Recording Studios in Melbourne for your help and patience and great musicianship.

I hope this album will reach lost people out there who need to realise that they need a Saviour and that Jesus Christ is that Saviour and that He loves them.

Kind Regards
Phil
