Holes

I want to start off this post with a bit of a warning to my regular readers.
This is not one of my funny posts. (at least not intentionally)
If you don’t like Christianity or are offended by it, please just skip the rest of this post.
I don’t try to proselytise anyone or put down their own beliefs.
No one is more aware of their own shortcomings than I am.
I don’t hold myself up as a good representative of my faith.
But I have do have a strong faith that I do express in public.
But I do that through music.
I’ve written dozens of christian themed songs.
I don’t know what kind of a category I would put them in.
Not pop, because they are not popular.
Not sacred, not hymns, not a modern style (after all I’m an old guy)
Maybe early sixties rock.
Anyway I’ve been meaning to post some of my original stuff here anyway so this is where I will start.
I write, sing and play the instruments on the recordings I make.
I’m a one man band.
I’m also limited in my talent so don’t expect the smoothest sounding music you ever heard.
Anyway here is one of the many songs I’ve recorded.
I made a video for it because people like to look at stuff while the music plays.
This song is called “Holes”.

Lyrics:
There’s a hole in the window.
There’s a hole in the floor.
There’s a whole lot of folks who aren’t whole anymore.
There’s a hole in their soul where the pain gets in,
that only the Holy One can fill in.
He’s wholly God. He’s wholly man.
He’s the Holy One know as the great I Am.
He’s got a hole in His side.
He’s got holes in His hands.
He allowed them there to make us whole again.
There’s a whole wide world going into a hole.
There are holes in mans plans of taking more than the whole.
There’s a hole in the space were they are trying to take hold.
But there’s only one who can make them feel whole.
