Peter Gringhuis sent this wonderful new song to share with everyone. I helped write the lyrics. Be sure and hear his recording of Face To Face. - Elton, July 22, 2007
There were a lot of requests for the piano score. I finally completed it. - Elton, October 21, 2007


Thank you Lord for being my friend,
everyday You show Your mercy.
Help me Lord to understand,
that my life is in Your hand.

When I look up to the sky
and the clouds arise above me.
Then I cry, I don't know why,
they're just clouds a' passing by.

I praise You Lord
and I thank You Lord.
For Your amazing love,
that You showed me on the cross

And I will bow my knees,
and glorify Your name.
I lift my hands to You
and give my life to You alone.

In the silence of the night,
I come to You my Lord and Savior
In this life that's sometimes hard,
I know Jesus You are near.

When I look into Your eyes,
I see the pain that you have taken.
And Lord that's the reason why,
I sometimes have to cry.
