#ThursdayThoughts Guest Post by Art Greenhaw

Good Morning!

Please welcome brand new (to me) Grammy Winning Producer and Artist, Art Greenhaw to share some thoughts with us with the lyrics to his song, Always Hear the Haromony....

Always Hear the Harmony
the Life Version

If life’s fires only refine you,
when you’re up against the heat,
If you always feel some pity
for the outcast on the street,
If you play the song within you,
(Note: The song within you is a reference to the Holy Spirit)
make a broken chord complete,
You’ll always hear the harmony
and you’ll always feel the beat.
(Note:  The beat is a reference to the heartbeat of the baby in the womb)

If you share Life’s gift of grace
with every girl and boy you meet,
If every mother gets to see
her baby’s hands and feet,
(Note:  This stanza is a reference to the sonogram)
And she listens for the breathing
of her tiny child asleep,
Then she always hears the harmony
and she always feels the beat.

If you hear the music, it’s your soul and it’s talking,

If you feel the rhythm, it’s your heart and it’s walking.

Cause there’s one small soul inside her
that thrills to hear her voice,
(Note:  The little baby in the womb recognizes its mother’s voice)
This one and only gift from God,
who’s never just a choice,
For every child is wanted
in The Maker’s plan complete,
(Note: The Maker is a reference to God the Father)
And Life always hears the harmony,
(Note:  Life is a reference to Jesus Christ.)
and Life always feels the beat.

If you hear the music, it’s your soul and it’s talking,

If you feel the rhythm, it’s your heart and it’s walking.

If you light one little candle
whose beam the distance throws,
If you say, “Here I stand”
for a million unborn Roes,
(Note: Estimated 54,000,000 aborted in the U.S. since 1973*)
If you always fight the Good Fight
‘til the Son of Man you meet,
You’ll always hear the harmony,
(Note: Harmony is a reference to the Holy Trinity)
and you’ll always feel the beat.

*In 1973, Roe v. Wade was filed at the Earl Cabell Federal Building in Dallas, Texas.  Henry Wade was the District Attorney who prosecuted the case.  For over 40 years, thousands have protested the final verdict on the anniversary of the filing of the case. In recent years, large rallies have been held in the parking lot of the Earl Cabell Federal Building where people pray out loud to God that this case will be reversed.
