Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain by TaRanda Greene

Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain by TaRanda Greene

In the twilight glow I see them
Blue eyes cryin’ in the rain
When we kissed goodbye and parted
I knew we’d never meet again

Love is like a dying ember
Only memories remain
Through the ages I’ll remember
Blue eyes cryin’ in the rain

Some day soon we’ll meet up yonder
We’ll walk hand in hand again
Through the ages I’ll remember
Blue eyes cryin’ in the rain

Blue eyes crying in the rain

Little More Jesus by TaRanda Greene

Little More Jesus by TaRanda Greene

I need just a little more Jesus (I need just a little more Jesus)
I need just a little more Jesus (I need just a little more Jesus)
I need just a little more Jesus (I need just a little more Jesus), to help me along the way
I need just a little more Jesus, (I need just a little more Jesus) hey hey hey
I need just a little more Jesus (I need just a little more Jesus), mmmm
I need just a little more Jesus (I need just a little more Jesus), to help me along the way
Oh, help me, come on sir, anybody need him, heyyy

I got too mad, and I said too much, I went too far, and I almost cussed
No, my mama didn’t raise me that way, Lord I need a little help today
I’m way too sad, and I cry too long, I can’t keep saying everything is wrong
Yes my life seems way too hard, but ain’t nothin too hard for God

Said, I need just a little more Jesus (I need just a little more Jesus), hey
I need just a little more Jesus (I need just a little more Jesus), oh
I need just a little more Jesus (I need just a little more Jesus), oh, to help me along the way
Yeah, I need just a little more Jesus (I need just a little more Jesus), yeah
I need just a little more Jesus (I need just a little more Jesus), oh hey
I need just a little more Jesus (I need just a little more Jesus), oh, to help me along the way
Heyyy

Problems at work and problems at home, won’t everybody just leave me alone
I can’t fix you cause I’m trying to fix me, I’m trying to find help so I’m on my knees
Got an ache right here, a pain right there, not enough courage, need a way more prayer
Seems like its so hard to pray, I guess that’s why I lost my way

Said I need just a little more Jesus (I need just a little more Jesus), yeah
I need just a little more Jesus (I need just a little more Jesus), oh Lord
I need just a little more Jesus (I need just a little more Jesus), yes I do, to help me along the way
I said now, I need just a little more Jesus (I need just a little more Jesus), yeah
I need just a little more Jesus (I need just a little more Jesus), oh Lord now
I need just a little more Jesus (I need just a little more Jesus), oh, to help me along the way
I need you to help me along the way, along the way, hey

All I Need

All I Need by TaRanda Greene

I have walked through the wilderness, lost and afraid
My faith has been tested and tried
Just like your mercies are new everyday
I have found every need satisfied, and…

-Chorus-
All that I need, Lord you’re able
To supply all my needs from your table
And even when I can’t see
Lord, you make provision for me
You are all I need

I have found in your promises, strength for each day
And your word is a lamp to my feet
I felt your forgiveness, then covered by Grace
Lord, you’ve showered your blessings on me, and…

-Chorus-

When I am hungry, whenever I thirst
And when I’m alone and afraid
Oh, I always know, that for better or worse
You hold up and the way has been made

-Chorus-

You are all I need
Oh, you are all I need

Stronger by TaRanda Greene Review

Stowtown Records added one of the most natural fluent southern gospel singer I’ve heard. And it was a great match indeed. Stronger by TaRanda Greene was released this November on the 10th. This album was a part of her testament of when she lost her husband, Tony, and how she is stronger, and how God helped her through her darkest days.

*Little More Jesus– This one has to be one of my favorites. A black gospel song, penned by Tina, Erica, and Warryn Campbell, its one of those free will gospel songs I could listen to over and over.  While a little repetitive, it’s great at reminding that yes, things will go wrong, but Jesus is the answer. An upbeat tune that keeps you swinging a long, its one of my favs.

*Where Amazing Happens– Is another one of those songs where the true message of the song is accentuated, telling how things can change. The warm tone in her voice builds up as the song goes on, making your heart flutter. This song could be a big hit for her, and I am glad they decided to put this one on the track.

*Shackles– A Pentecostal song that keeps you tapping your foot, belting along, this song was my favorite when I first bought this CD. This is a song you could play at an ice skating rink, and everyone would be bopping along. One of my favorite lines…”Through the fire and rain, bound in every kind of way, but God has broken every chain, so let me go right now”

*Stronger– While this is the title track, I didn’t find it as compelling or exciting as the others listed above. I love TaRanda’s voice leading the soft piano behind her, and the lyrics are inspirational, but I feel like it’s a little stale for the big voice TaRanda has. I love hearing her belt out those high notes, and I love the warmth this song brings, I just thought there were better songs on the CD.

*Awake my Soul– Of all the songs on the CD, this one, sadly, is not my favorite. It’s probably my least favorite. A song that was penned by Randy Phillips of Phillips, Craig & Dean. While the lyrics of this song are well written and thought out, I didn’t think it complimented TaRanda’s voice like it should. Of course she knocked it out of the park anyhow, just not my favorite.

*Promise– This song is one that retells Jesus leaving the disciples and though it’s an odd one to hear sung by a female, it’s one I could listen to over and over. A nice, smooth gospel song that doesn’t overuse TaRanda’s power momentum behind that amazing voice of hers, you still get that nice taste of soprano moments that make you go… WOW!

*Deepest Praise– One of the darker , solemner songs on the CD, I feel like this one has a special connection with TaRanda- especially her past experiences. One of my favorites, that I can’t help but slowly sway to and sing a long. It’s one that’s perfect for any moment where you’re doubting, where you’re sad, when you need a pick me up.

*Healer– Is one of those I have a love/hate relationship with. It starts out slow and sweet, building but never really satisfying. I found it a bit repetitive, especially near the end, but not one of those where the song itself is enough to keep you entertained. The lyrics are phenomenal, and a CD must have different sounds, but this one personally connect with me and I don’t find myself listening to it on repeat.

*All I Need– On the other hand is phenomenal. A song that starts out in one key, then switches to a different key for the chorus. A song that is worthy of worshiping the Lord and is very classy. One that definitely showcases TaRanda’s powerful voice backed by a choir. A song you can’t help but take the lyrics to heart, talking about the graces of our wonderful Lord.

*The Sound- Yankee Gospel Girl says it wonderfully: “William Murphy cover “The Sound” is an exciting, power-packed closer to wake the listener up. The Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir is essentially carrying the song behind Taranda while she improvises. Another soloist shares the spotlight with her for a verse. I like it when Taranda gets her Whitney Houston on. Once she locks onto the tune, you’re just along for the ride.”

*Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain– A classic Willie Nelson song that TaRanda made her own. At first I didn’t think I would like this because- I mean come on, a Willie Nelson song, surely no one could remake his own amazing song? But I love her rendition- one that most of us will recognize and be able to sing along.

*If I Could– Is one she dedicated to her daughter’s, one that I believe they will cherish forever. TaRanda had a big reputation to compete with as many other artist’s, such as: Regina Belle, to Barbara Streisand, to Celine Dion. But in my opinion, she trumps all.

Overall: I give this CD a 9.5/10, I love this CD, even the songs I don’t care for were executed beautifully whether I agree that they were the best sound for T’s voice or not.

Hope y’all enjoy the CD!

Where Amazing Happens

Where Amazing Happens by TaRanda Greene

Standing on the edge, of loosing everything
You’re out of options, out of hope, you’ve lost your way
Your happy ever after, didn’t turn out like you planned
Searching for a solid place to stand
Looking at the ashes of what could’ve been
You can’t help wondering if you finally reached the end
Yet in this place of weakness is where miracles begin
Watch and see the dead can live again

-Chorus-
This is where amazing happens, this is where God steps in
This is the place, where broken dreams can live again
When you’re to the end of hope
Nowhere else for you to go
Welcome to the place of second chances
This is where amazing happens

Dawn can never come, unless there’s been a night
Healing cannot come, without a ruined life
And mercy’s only given to the ones who’ve made mistakes
And only shattered lives see saving Grace

-Chorus-

Oh and nothings ever found, unless it first was lost
There’s not a resurrection, without there is a cross

-Chorus-

Oh, Oh, Oh

When you’re to the end of hope, nowhere else for you to go (Oh)
Welcome to the place of second chances
This is where amazing happens, this is where amazing happens
Oh, this is where God steps in
This is where amazing happens

If I Could Lyrics

If I Could by TaRanda Greene

If I could I’d protect you from the sadness in your eyes
Give you courage in a word of comprise, yes, I would
If I could I would teach you all the things I never learned
And I’d help you cross bridges that I’ve burned, yes I would
If I could, I would try to shield your innocence from time
But the part of life I gave you isn’t mine
I’ve watched you grow so I could let you go
If I could I would help you make it through those hungry years
But I know that I can never cry your tears but I would if I could
If, if I live in a time and place where you don’t want me
You don’t have to walk along this road with me
My yesterdays don’t have to be a ways

If I knew how I’d try to change the world I brought you to
But there isn’t very much that I can do, but I would if I could
If, if I could, I would try to shield your innocence from time
But the part of life I gave you isn’t mine
I’ve watched you grow so I could let you go
If I could I would help you make it through those hungry years
But I know I could never cry your tears but I would if I could
Yes, I would, oh I would if I could

Mommy loves you babies
And I want you to know
When the world gets dark and you need just a shoulder to cry on I’ll be there for you
If I could take away every pain, every hurt, every tear that you might cry
Oh my babies I would, oh mommy would, yes I would if I could

Healer by TaRanda Greene

You hold my every moment, you calm the raging seas
You walk with me through fire, and heal all my disease

Jesus you’re all I need

You walk with me through fire
And heal all my disease
I trust in you, I trust in you

Nothing is impossible for you, you hold my world in your hands

You’re all I need

This Is My Promise

Promise by TaRanda Greene

Things of heaven are so different than how you see through earthly eyes
The first are last, the weak are strongest and foolish things confound the wise
And the path of sufferings will be the path that brings the hope of everlasting life

Through my pain you will know healing
Through my dying you will live
I won’t leave you, won’t forsake you
No, this is my promise I give
This is my promise

Jesus said I have to go away but I won’t leave you all alone
I’ll be with you every day for The Comforter will come
And I won’t just be with you but I will be in you
I’ll be the life the truth the way

Through my pain you will know healing, through my dying you will live
I won’t leave you, won’t forsake you, no, this is the promise I give
Through my pain you will know healing, through my dying you will live, yes you will
I won’t leave you, won’t forsake you, no, no, no, this is my promise I give
This is my promise I give, this is my promise

I’ll be with you everyday
Be the life the truth the way
This is my promise

!!!Shackles Lyrics!!!

LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS SONG!!

Shackles by TaRanda Greene

Take these shackles off my feet so I can dance
I just wanna praise you, I just wanna praise you
You broke those chains now I can lift my hands
I’m gonna praise you, I’m gonna praise

In the corners of my mind I just can’t seem to find a reason
To believe that I can break free cause you see I have been down for so long
Feel like all hope is gone but as I lift my hands
I understand that I should praise you through my circumstance

-Chorus-
Everything that could go wrong all went wrong at one time
And so much pressure fell on me
I thought I was gonna to lose my mind
But I know you want to see if I can hold on through these trials
But I need you to lift my load cause I can’t take it anymore

-Chorus-

Through the fire and the rain bound in every kind of way
But God has broken every chain so let me go right now

-Chorus x2-

I’m gonna praise you, yes I’m gonna praise you
Praise you

Deepest Praise Lyrics

Deepest Praise by TaRanda Greene

When Hallelujahs don’t come easy and heart of worships hard to find
Caught in a dark and lonely season, you feel your river has run dry
When prayers can’t seem to break the silence
You have no song that’s left to sing
But looking back you’ll see the reason once the winter turns to spring

-Chorus-
Maybe the deepest praise is born of darkest days, from a painful place a greater depth of grace
We come to know and trust the Lord in a way we never have before
The rocky road we’re on becomes the way to the deepest praise

When tragedy hits hard and unexpected
Oh we fall once more into familiar sin
Only there our frailty meets your mercy
We’re overcome with thankfulness

-Chorus-

Blessed are the poor spirit, blessed are the ones who mourn
Blessed are the truly desperate, who share the sufferings of the Lord
Blessed are the poor spirit, blessed are the ones who mourn
Blessed are the truly desperate, taste the goodness of the Lord

Maybe the deepest praise is born of darkest days, from a painful place the greater depth of grace
We come to know and trust the Lord in a way we never have before
The rocky road we’re on becomes the way
Oh the rocky road we’re on becomes the way to the deepest praise
Oh
