Speaking of Giving Away Songs:

Four of the folks over at npmusers took me up on my offer to send copies of my "Even the Rocks Would Cry Out". I mailed them today, a few bucks postage. Tossed in my Psalm 66 for one of 'em, my published "Joy!" for another.

I've always gotten a kick out of the thought that someone else somewhere might be singing one of my songs. This is one of my better ones:

Even the rocks would cry out,
Even these stones would name you "Lord";
If every voice were stilled,
If every tongue were silent,
Even the rocks would cry out that Jesus Christ is Lord.

So I'm paying to give my songs away - but I bet Johnny Appleseed had to buy his own seeds sometimes, too.
