“Blessed are the Ones” – The CD

 Song Descriptions:

 

Track 1: “Blessed are the Ones” - Inspired by the works of Mother Teresa & other great humanitarians, visionaries, & patriots, this song honors all those who still dare to love and serve, even in the face of hate and fear.

 

Track 2: “Can We Bring Those Days Back Again”  This selection speaks of the beauty and simplicity of our foundational values and of our prayers to keep God at the center of our culture and our lives. Recalling the innocence of youth as it once was in our country, this original piece also recognizes those families and communities throughout our history who have made it a tradition to center their celebrations and remembrances on God the Father and His Ways.

 

Track 3: “Through the Eyes of Love” - Featured on this song are memorable melody lines accented with the haunting sound of bagpipes; the message speaks of how different & beautiful the world is, as seen through eyes of love. This moving piece suggests the powerful ways in which the Spirit of God completely changes our perspective on everything, bringing a brilliance and joy to our experience.

 

Track 4: “Help Me Cross Over” - With sparkling strings and heart-stirring words, this story tenderly captures the human challenge to forgive and hold to love, no matter the darkness around us or deep disappointments that life can bring. Based on the words of Jesus, "Father, forgive them; they know not what they do..." Those on the spiritual path all aspire to walk in His Footsteps in learning how to live in love...

Track 5: “Simple Gifts” - This is a traditional song, shared by all Christians, and was first published in 1853 by a Quaker; Quakers were very active with humanitarian work at the time, including the Underground Railroad, which was responsible for escorting many slaves out of danger to freedom. To expand on the wonderful values express in the original verses, Ann has added a contemporary verse and chorus to extend the song a bit as well as to build on the meaning of the original lyrics.

 

Track 6: “I Will Never Forget You” -This song honors Martin Luther King, Jr., Mother Teresa & all those who serve in harm's way that others might live.

In the words of Ann Wolf...

"This is a song which honors many great souls, starting with Martin Luther King Jr. (in the first verse). As I was composing this song, I recalled (see lyrics) looking out my bedroom window and across the river at the smoke rising above parts of Washington D.C. which had been set fire by certain citizens, upon hearing about the great leader's assassination. Yet, at that moment, I also remembered a feeling stirring in my heart, telling me that, "out of the ashes" of that tragedy, 1000 more leaders would inevitably rise, because in the end, truth cannot be kept hidden.

Then with verse two, I wrote of Mother Teresa who walked out into the streets of India upon her retirement from working for the "Mother Church" and began her street ministry with no available resources, only a calling in her heart. Yet with incredible faith, she started to serve "the poorest of the poor" from where she found herself; and as the story goes, even before she had anything available to her with which to carry out her new mission, she simply picked up a stick and began teaching children how to read, by drawing characters and lines in the dirt with a stick. With that powerful gesture of belief and conviction, she took "matters in hand" and built one of the most credible and outstanding missions of mercy that this world has ever known.

Then, with verse three, the song recognizes and gives thanks for those who have and still do...put themselves in harm's way to help, serve, and protect others."

Track 7: “We Will Stand” - As Mary, the Mother of Jesus, stood with him in life & as she was one of the few who stood with him as He died, we too can follow her example and can stand for our families and communities against any darkness that would try & lead our loved ones away from the Light.

 

Track 8: “Wings of Grace” - Based on Proverbs 3:5-6 (KJV), this song journals Ann Wolf's experiences of relying on Mercy & Grace while raising her kids as a single Mom.

 

Track 9: “By Our Fruits” – This song was inspired by the words of Jesus, "Ye shall know them by their fruit." (Matthew 7:18) - The Scripture verse says it all...a core message for those who claim Jesus as their Shepherd, as they interact with others in the world.

 

Track 10: “You Believed in Me” - With this song, Ann honors those who have believed in us throughout our spiritual journey... those friends, family, and mentors who have been there for us when we needed encouragement or guidance. She also honors the ones who have breathed life into us, as we grew….helping us to “hold on” throughout the challenges, in order to reach our full potential and in order to fulfill God’s call on our lives.

 

Track 11: “The Ways of Love” - This is a song and a prayer asking God to keep us close to Him and to help us establish a pure heart & motive in all of our affairs. As we remain seated in the Love & Mercy of God, Love becomes our core motivation and the driving force of our soul.


Track 12: “Medley for America” - Powerful blend of three loved American favorites, "America the Beautiful," "My Country Tis' of Thee" & "God Bless America"...stirring orchestration and powerful affirmations.

Can We Bring

Those Days

Back Again?

“I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing." – John 15:5 (KJV)


Verse One:

I remember when,

Water tasted so fine

And fruit was so sweet;

You could eat it

Straight off of the vine

I remember when,

We thought those days

Would never end

Can we ever

Bring those days

Back round' again?
