This Old Guitar No. 12

1977—Serenade

Once again, a long gap between postings in This Old Guitar.

Serenade, written in 1977, is a song of worship to the Lord. It is short, sweet, and to the point.

Oh Lord, how good, and how wonderful
To be sitting in your presence
And enjoying You
Repeat

Let me serenade You
For You Lord are my King
Let me serenade You
Your praises I will sing, Hallelujah!

It came in one of those quiet moments, sitting in God’s presence, enjoying His fellowship.

This is not the best rendition of the song. Back in the late 1970’s I was part of a small Christian band called Family. Serenade is one of my songs that made it into in our repertoire, along a few others that I will be sharing.

I still have several reel-to-reel tapes of our many songs—almost all original—and about twenty five years ago I transferred the best of them to a cassette tape. I also still have the cassette tape … somewhere. Serenade is on that tape and one day I will find it and convert all of the songs to the MP3 format. Of course by then, the MP3 will have probably gone the way of the reel-to-reel tape.
