Happy New Year for 2014

I wish all of you every blessing for the coming year and thank you all for sharing my journey through the past twelve months.

Jesus bids you "Come to Me" : Worship song from Colin Gordon-Farleigh

Here's a hymn for toady to cheer your soul and brighten your day! Sung to the beautiful tune "Here is Love", this hymn reminds us of all that our Saviour, Jesus Christ, offers to us. When He says to us, "Come to Me." then we need to respond with our hearts and commit ourselves to His bidding.

Come to Me   8787 D
Tune: Here is Love

Come to Me when you are weary,
You will find rest for your soul;
‘Come to Me,’ says Christ the Saviour,
And then I will make you whole.
Yoked to Christ, yet free to wander,
No more trouble, no more strife;
Yoked to Christ, yet free to wander,
We’re blessed with the gift of life.

Come to Me when you are troubled,
Tired and weary in your soul;
‘Come to Me,’ says Christ the Saviour,
I have come to make you whole.
Yoked to Christ, yet free to wander,
No more trouble, no more strife;
Yoked to Christ, yet free to wander,
We’re blessed with the gift of life.

Come to Me when your day’s ending,
When your work on earth is done;
‘Come to Me,’ says Christ the Saviour,
For the battle has been won.
Yoked to Christ, yet free to wander,
No more trouble, no more strife;
Yoked to Christ, yet free to wander,
We’re blessed with the gift of life.

"Jesus, Saviour" : A new hymn for Advent

Here is a new Advent hymn, sung to the well-known tune "All the Way" which I hope you will use in your worship services this Christmas.
Above all, I hope that you will enjoy praising the Lord as you sing it!


Jesus, Saviour 8787 D
TUNE: All the Way
Jesus, Saviour in the manger,
Jesus, infant in the straw;
He has come to bring salvation,
Come to free us from the Law.
Lowly baby in the stable,
Humble infant in the hay;
All the creatures gathered round Him,
He has come to show the way.
All the creatures gathered round Him,
He has come to show the way.

He will point us up to heaven,
When at last He grows to man;
He will carry all our burdens,
Because God decreed He can.
He will save you if you trust Him,
He can free you from all sin;
He’s the Son of God eternal,
Won’t you let the Saviour in.
He’s the Son of God eternal,
Won’t you let the Saviour in.

He is Lord and He is Saviour,
Follow now the guiding star;
Join the shepherds and the wise men
As they travel near and far.
Give to Him your praise and worship,
He will love you to the end;
He will carry you when weary,
He is Master, brother, friend.
He will carry you when weary,
He is Master, brother, friend.

An Advent Hymn by Colin Gordon-Farleigh : "Emmanuel Now"

      Soon we will be celebrating Advent in the run up to Christmas, and so I thought it fitting to share "Emmanuel Now", which is one of my Advent Hymns, with you today. 
      Please feel free to share it with your friends, and perhaps you would also visit my Facebook page, Hymns by Colin Gordon-Farleigh, and click on the Like Button for me.

Emmanuel Now 10.10.6.6.13.5.
Angels are singing, high up in heaven,
Church bells are ringing on earth down below;
The world’s celebrating,
The birth of the Christ Child,
Emmanuel, Emmanuel, Emmanuel now,
His glory does show!

Shepherds in fields were watching and waiting,
God’s angel singing, and all heavens ring.
He told them how God’s Light,
Would banish the darkness,
Emmanuel, Emmanuel, Emmanuel now,
All worship the King!

Bright star is shining, high in the night sky,
Stopped o’er the stable where Jesus, He lay.
The  babe in the manger,
God’s love and God’s glory;
Emmanuel, Emmanuel, Emmanuel now,
Asleep in the hay.

Softly and gently, Mary is singing,
We kneel to praise Him with kings from afar;
The oxen are lowing,
As all join in worship;
Emmanuel, Emmanuel, Emmanuel now,
All follow the star.

Lifting our voices, we sing our praises,
With heav’nly choirs our worship we bring.
We tell the great story
Of Jesus the Saviour,
Emmanuel, Emmanuel, Emmanuel now,
We worship our King!

Happy Hanukkah!

I wish all of my Jewish friends and readers a very Happy Chanukah on the 28th and throughout the celebrations. If you are travelling to be with your families then I wish you travelling mercies, and pray that you will arrive safely for the celebration.

News from Sheer Joy Music: Lauralei to release new track "Where Did You Go?"

Lots of exciting news coming up very soon from Sheer Joy Music. Amongst other things, keep a watch out for the new track cut by the fabulous Lauralei which is titled "Where Did You Go?" 
This is another track in a similar vein to her huge hit "What Did You Mean", and I expect that it will be as popular with everyone as well. The song is in the Jazz genre, along the lines of the hugely talented Norah Jones , so if you like her then you will surely love Lauralei.

A great love-song to celebrate your anniversary


Alan Watson, Runcorn's "Mr Smooth", sings this beautiful ballad to serenade the love of your life with as part of your anniversary celebrations. The song is from Alan's CD, Taking It Easy available to download from iTunes, CD Baby and Amazon.

Great Christian Quotes of William Booth, founder of the Salvation Army

"I must assert in the most unqualified way that it is primarily and mainly for the sake of saving the soul that I seek the salvation of the body." 

"But what is the use of preaching the Gospel to men whose whole attention is concentrated upon a mad, desperate struggle to keep themselves alive?"


"It is impossible to comfort men's hearts with the love of God when their feet are perishing with cold."


"No sort of defense is needed for preaching outdoors, but it would take a very strong argument to prove that a man who has never preached beyond the walls of his meetinghouse has done his duty. A defense is required for services within buildings rather than for worship outside of them."

"'Not called!' did you say? 'Not heard the call,' I think you should say. Put your ear down to the Bible, and hear Him bid you go and pull sinners out of the fire of sin. Put your ear down to the burdened, agonized heart of humanity, and listen to its pitiful wail for help. Go stand by the gates of hell, and hear the damned entreat you to go to their father's house and bid their brothers and sisters not to come there. Then look Christ in the face whose mercy you have professed to obey and tell Him whether you will join heart and soul and body and circumstances in the march to publish His mercy to the world."

"To get a man soundly saved it is not enough to put on him a pair of new breeches, to give him regular work, or even to give him a University education. These things are all outside a man, and if the inside remains unchanged you have wasted your labor. You must in some way or other graft upon the man's nature a new nature, which has in it the element of the Divine."

"The chief danger that confronts the coming century will be religion without the Holy Ghost, Christianity without Christ, forgiveness without repentance, salvation without regeneration, politics without God, heaven without hell."

"Go for souls. Go straight for souls, and go for the worst."

"While women weep, as they do now, I'll fight
While little children go hungry, as they do now, I'll fight
While men go to prison, in and out, in and out, as they do now, I'll fight
While there is a drunkard left, 
While there is a poor lost girl upon the streets, 
While there remains one dark soul without the light of God, 
I'll fight-I'll fight to the very end!"

"Work as if everything depended upon work and pray as if everything depended upon prayer."


"Look! Don't be deceived by appearances - men and things are not what they seem. All who are not on the rock are in the sea!"

A bunch of Great Christian Quotes

"Their eyes are dry, their sense of sin absent; nor is there any sign of penitence and contrition... But oh, if there were conviction! if they came with hearts bowed down, yea! broken and contrite, came with the cry of the guilt-laden soul... what converts they would be!"
- Oswald J. Smith

"In prayer I was exceedingly enlarged and my soul was as much drawn out as I ever remember it to have been in my life. I was in such anguish, and pleaded with so much earnestness and importunity, that when I rose from my knees I felt extremely weak and overcome I could scarcely walk straight."
- David Brainerd

"Prayer was his one great solace, and his tears would often stain the altar steps, where he sought aid from heaven against the vile and corrupt age".
- From 'Girolamo Savonarola' by David Smithers.

"I had not discoursed long when the congregation melted into tears... a little boy about seven or eight years of age cried out exceeding piteously indeed and wept as though his little heart would break. I asked the little boy what he cried for. He answered 'my sins!' I then asked him what he wanted. He answered, 'Christ!'
... Many of the assembled were deeply affected, groaning and sobbing; there was a great weeping and mourning."
- William Bramwell

"When the conviction as to its mental process reaches its crisis, the person, through weakness, is unable to sit or stand, and either kneels or lies down. A great number of convicted persons in this town and neighborhood, and now I believe in all directions in the north where the Revival prevails, are "smitten down" ... They fall with a deep groan... with the intensely earnest plea, 'Lord Jesus, have mercy on my soul!'"
- The Irish Revival, 1859.

"The power of God was present. They came to be saved, and were not disappointed. The sobs and cries were wonderful. It seemed as if God had come down in terror and power; as if the Spirit were passing through every region of every soul... until the whole soul, collecting all its energies into one out-cry for mercy, exclaimed, 'God, be merciful to me a sinner, what must I do to be saved? Save, Lord, or I perish! O, save or I sink into hell. Heal my soul for I have sinned against Thee!"
- James Caughey


"Forgiveness is the key which unlocks the door of resentment and the handcuffs of hatred. It breaks the chains of bitterness and the shackles of selfishness. The forgiveness of Jesus not only takes away our sins, it makes them as if they had never been."
- Corrie ten Boom

A man had an illiterate pastor. When someone questioned him about it, the man said, "Well, I'd rather hear a preacher say, "I seen," who saw something, than to hear one say "I saw," who ain't saw nothin'."

- Anonymous

"It is impossible to be a true soldier of Jesus Christ and not fight."
- J. Gresham Machen

The Spiritual Man

"The spiritual man habitually makes eternity-judgments instead of time-judgments. By faith he rises above the tug of earth and the flow of time and learns to think and feel as one who has already left the world and gone to join the innumerable company of angels and the general assembly and Church of the First-born which are written in heaven. Such a man would rather be useful than famous and would rather serve than be served. And all this must be by the operation of the Holy Spirit within him. No man can become spiritual by himself. Only the free Spirit can make a man spiritual."
- A.W.Tozer

The Gospel Message

It's often said that the Gospel message of Jesus Christ is designed to comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable. The Apostle Paul excelled at the former, as his pastoral letters make clear, but it would be fair to say that he specialised in the latter.

I hope and pray that I am able, therefore, to continue disturbing the comfortable for the remainder of my life!

Shake the Dust - Byron J Bryce


The weather is getting cooler in the mornings and evenings as the Autumn establishes itself, and so a real foot-tapper like this song by songwriting duo, Colin Gordon-Farleigh and Greg Scheer, is just the thing to make you feel a little warmer!

"The Voice" is going to be silent!

      I am working on what is to be the final edition of "The Voice Christian News & Views" today. I have published and edited the magazine for ten years as part of my ministry, but have felt for some while that this needs to come to a close. They say that you should always bow out when the people want more, and I think that that will certainly be the case with "The Voice."
      What an exciting journey it has been! Up to a couple of years ago there were six issues a year published, distributed to subscribers in twenty countries. A couple of years ago, due to increasing costs and falling donations due to the economic downturn, the decision was made to cut it down to four issues a year, and the next big change was to put it online and only distribute hard copy to the UK subscribers. Unfortunately, the costs of production have continued to rise, just like everything else.
      I am so grateful for all of the brilliant writers who have helped me over the years to achieve the success that the magazine has enjoyed, for without them we would never have built or maintained the readership levels as high as they have been.
      The final issue will be out in a few weeks, so keep a watch out for it!

Here is a great song for any anniversary occasion, with lyrics by Colin Gordon-Farleigh an music by Andrew Millinchip.  It is warmly and beautifully sung by Alan Watson, Runcorn's 'Mr Smooth' and is availablke to download from iTunes, Amazon and CD Baby, or to purchase on CD from Sheer Joy Music.

Grace Reigns - Kevin Williams (Rom 5:21)


This is a first-class discourse on the subject of God's overwhelming grace.  Kevin Williams speaks from a Spirit-inspired heart, and pulls no punches. After all, what's the point of giving people half the meal to make it easier for them to digest when what they need for their eternal salvation is the whole truth.

Louisa Ellingham in accident at Portwen

     At the beginning of September we were in Port Isaac, which is the home of the fictional Portwen and the 'Doc Martin' TV series. The photo above is of Doc Martin's house and surgery.
     On Monday evening we were watching the latest episode in this favourite program and, like most viewers, were stunned when we saw Louisa hit by a car. I read in the press that there have been a raft of complaints about the graphic nature of the scene, yet there is a good side to the way in which it was depicted. After all, people do not get a warning when they are about to be involved in an accident. It happens in a split second, and it's that fact that impresses the horror of it all on our minds more than anything. The lesson to be learned from this episode is the importance of going about with care and being alert. Louisa ran across into the path of the vehicle without looking. It could happen to anyone.
     So, yes, we were stunned, horrified and somewhat upset, but I think that the programme makers nevertheless got it right because of the lesson that can be drawn from it.


One of the places we photographed was the village school where Louise Ellingham (nee Glasson) is the head teacher. 
 Above is a shot looking down on the beach in front of the harbour.
A long shot across the harbour to the doctor's house.

Samantha Link sings "Love Alone"


The talented Samantha Link sings "Love Alone" with lyrics by Colin Gordon-Farleigh and Music by Tony Seeger. This Celtic song has a distinctly baroque feel to it as a result of the Seraph-Harp guitar played by Tony Seeger, and the haunting tones of the whistle, played by Catherine Ashcroft, makes this a really different sound for Samantha to her usual repertoire.

Up, Up and Away, in my beautiful balloon .....

I finally went on my long-anticipated air-balloon flight which was given to me by my wife as a special birthday present. There were 16 of us plus the pilot in the basket, and the photo above shows us almost ready for lift-off.
 Lift-off!
 Up in the air, flying upward to around 1100 or 1200 feet above sea level, with nothing but the occasional sound of the burner. What a wonderful sensation, just floating along at about 9 miles per hour, with hardly any feeling of movement. The flight was all that I had always anticipated, and more!
Once we were back on terra firma, which was about two hours after take-off, we were given a certificate to commemorate our flight.

Like most folk, I love getting presents, especially when the present arrives unexpectedly!

I LOVE it!

Children's Exam Results : A Nun Grading Papers

The following landed in my email inbox this morning, and so I thought that I would share it with you to start your day with a smile.

A Nun Grading Papers 

     Can you imagine the nun sitting at her desk grading these papers, all the while trying to keep a straight face and maintain her composure!  Pay special attention to the wording and spelling.  If you know the Bible even a little, then you'll find this hilarious!
     It comes from a Catholic Elementary School test. 

The children were asked questions about both the Old and the New Testaments, and the following statements are the answers they gave. The statements have not been amended or corrected, and any incorrect spellings have been left in.

1. IN THE FIRST BOOK OF THE BIBLE, GUINESSIS. GOD GOT TIRED OF CREATING THE WORLD SO HE TOOK THE SABBATH OFF.

2. ADAM AND EVE WERE CREATED FROM AN APPLE TREE. NOAH'S WIFE WAS JOAN OF ARK. NOAH BUILT AND ARK AND THE ANIMALS CAME ON IN PEARS. 

4. THE JEWS WERE A PROUD PEOPLE AND THROUGHOUT HISTORY THEY HAD TROUBLE WITH UNSYMPATHETIC GENITALS.

5. SAMPSON WAS A STRONGMAN WHO LET HIMSELF BE LED ASTRAY BY A JEZEBEL LIKE DELILAH. 

6. SAMSON SLAYED THE PHILISTINES WITH THE AXE OF THE APOSTLES. 

7. MOSES LED THE JEWS TO THE RED SEA WHERE THEY MADE UNLEAVENED BREAD, WHICH IS BREAD WITHOUT ANY INGREDIENTS.

8. THE EGYPTIANS WERE ALL DROWNED IN THE DESSERT. AFTERWARDS, MOSES WENT UP TO MOUNT CYANIDE TO GET THE TEN COMMANDMENTS.

9. THE FIRST COMMANDMENTS WAS WHEN EVE TOLD ADAM TO EAT THE APPLE.

10. THE SEVENTH COMMANDMENT IS THOU SHALT NOT ADMIT ADULTERY. 

11. MOSES DIED BEFORE HE EVER REACHED CANADA THEN JOSHUA LED THE HEBREWS IN THE BATTLE OF GERITOL.

12. THE GREATEST MIRICLE IN THE BIBLE IS WHEN JOSHUA TOLD HIS SON TO STAND STILL AND HE OBEYED HIM.

13. DAVID WAS A HEBREW KING WHO WAS SKILLED AT PLAYING THE LIAR. HE FOUGHT THE FINKELSTEINS, A RACE OF PEOPLE WHO LIVED IN BIBLICAL TIMES.

14. SOLOMON, ONE OF DAVIDS SONS, HAD 300 WIVES AND 700 PORCUPINES.

15. WHEN MARY HEARD SHE WAS THE MOTHER OF JESUS, SHE SANG THE MAGNA CARTA. 
16. WHEN THE THREE WISE GUYS FROM THE EAST SIDE ARRIVED THEY FOUND JESUS IN THE MANAGER.

17. JESUS WAS BORN BECAUSE MARY HAD AN IMMACULATE CONTRAPTION. 

18. ST. JOHN THE BLACKSMITH DUMPED WATER ON HIS HEAD. 

19. JESUS ENUNCIATED THE GOLDEN RULE, WHICH SAYS TO DO UNTO OTHERS BEFORE THEY DO ONE TO YOU. HE ALSO EXPLAINED A MAN DOTH NOT LIVE BY SWEAT ALONE.

20. IT WAS A MIRICLE WHEN JESUS ROSE FROM THE DEAD AND MANAGED TO GET THE TOMBSTONE OFF THE ENTRANCE. 

21. THE PEOPLE WHO FOLLOWED THE LORD WERE CALLED THE 12 DECIBELS.

22. THE EPISTELS WERE THE WIVES OF THE APOSTLES.

23. ONE OF THE OPPOSSUMS WAS ST. MATTHEW WHO WAS ALSO A TAXIMAN.

24. ST. PAUL CAVORTED TO CHRISTIANITY, HE PREACHED HOLY ACRIMONY, WHICH IS ANOTHER NAME FOR MARRAIGE. 

25. CHRISTIANS HAVE ONLY ONE SPOUSE. THIS IS CALLED MONOTONY.

Aren't Children great!!

We must never forget: "9/11 Remembered"

9/11 Remembered
Close your eyes and try to keep out the dust;
Close your ears and try to keep out the sounds;
Close your mind and try to keep out the pain.

What now? Now that the years are passing,
and the ground no longer blossoms red?

What now? Now that the cloying dust has turned
into a vast bouquet of concrete roses?

What now? Now that the mind, in relaxed moments,
recalls the awful sounds of people screaming,
people crying,
--- of people dying?
What now?

Are all the lessons learned?
Has hatred turned to love?

Or is the world the same, despite the rhetoric
that it was changed for ever on that day?

So many questions. So many questions.

Yet still no answers from the growing shroud
that covers all the mounting dead.

Still no answers from the bleating throng
who find their solace in the world instead.

Still no peace exists 'tween man and man,
nor ever will as long as hate exists.

So on this day, when we recall the horror
of that day when life was changed,
let us make a stand for peace,
a stand for love,
a stand for Christ;

and in His name, pray to our God above
that our world will change again.
Yet let this change be one that turns on love.

My 'Hymn for Today' : "Here I Am Lord"

Here I Am Lord 7777   
TUNE: Innocents
Come, Lord Jesus, to my heart,
Willing, I would, play my part;
Here I am Lord, here for Thee,
Come, Lord Jesus, let it be.
I will serve Thee here below,
Arms wide open, eyes aglow;
Here I am Lord, here for Thee,
Come, Lord Jesus, let it be.
Thou hast healed my sinful heart,
Cleansed my soul, set me apart;
Here I am Lord, here for Thee,
Come, Lord Jesus, let it be.
Willing, give my life to Thee,
Now Thy light my blind eyes see;
Here I am Lord, here for Thee,
Come, Lord Jesus, let it be.
