    Heard back in the '50s:

    I heard about a man one day
    Who wasted not his time away;
    He prayed to God
    Every morning, noon, and night.

    Also heard in the '50s:

    Little David, play on your harp,
    Hallelu, Hallelu!
    Little Ddavid, play on your harp,
    Hallelu!
    (repeat)

    Oh, David was a shepherd boy,
    He killed Goliath, and he shouted for joy
    . . . .

    '50s again:

    Have faith, hope, and charity,
    And the blessed Lord
    You'll surely please;
    How do I know?
    The Bible tells me so-o-o.
    Do good to your enemies
    ___________________________
    How do I know?

    Don't worry 'bout tomorrow,
    Just be real good today;

    Hey Abiyah-

    I found the first two on a google search, but I couldn't find the last one.

    1. "Daniel Prayed"

    "I heard about a man one day who wasted not his time away.
    He prayed to God every morning, noon, and night.
    He cared not for the things of Baals. He trusted one who never fails.
    Oh, Daniel prayed evey morning, noon, and night.

    Oh, Daniel served the living God while here upon this earth he trod.
    He prayed to God every morning, noon, and night.
    He cared not for the king's decree. He trusted God who set him free.
    And he prayed to God evey morning, noon, and night.

    They cast him in the lion's den cecause he would not honor men,
    He prayed to God every morning, noon, and night.
    The jaws were locked and it make him shout, and God sent all them safely out.
    Oh, Daniel prayed every morning, noon, and night.

    Now brother, let us watch and pray like Daniel did from day to day.
    He prayed to God every morning noon and night.
    We took can gladly daring do. The things of God he'll take us through.
    Oh, Daniel prayed every monrning, noon, and night."

    *************************************

    2. "Little David Play On Your Harp"

    "Little David play on your harp,
    Hallelu, hallelu;
    Little David play on your harp, hallelu.
    Little David play on your harp,
    Hallelu, hallelu;
    Little David play on your harp, hallelu.

    David was a shepherd boy,
    He killed Goliath and shouted for joy.

    Joshua was the son of Nun,
    He never would quit till his work was done.

    Little David play on your harp,
    Hallelu, hallelu;
    Little David play on your harp, hallelu.
    Little David play on your harp,
    Hallelu, hallelu;
    Little David play on your harp, hallelu.

    Peace-

    YSIC
    Scarlett O.

    The third one is by Dale Evans Rogers.

    The rest of that verse:

    Be good to your enemies,
    That's the way to live successfully
    How do I know? The Bible tells me so.

    I can't remember any more of it either.

    Shalom :D

    "Don't worry 'bout tomorrow,
    Just be real good today.
    The Lord is right beside you,
    He'll guide you all the way...

    Have faith, hope & charity...etc

    Abiyah, I think we both had the verses mixed up.

    It is;

    Have faith, hope and charity;
    That's the way to live successfully
    How do I know? The Bible tells me so.

    Be good to your enemies
    And the blessed Lord you'll surely please.
    How do I know, the Bible tells me so.

    Don't worry about tomorrow;
    Just be real good today!
    The Lord is right beside you;
    He'll guide you all the way.

    Have faith, hope and charity;
    That't the way to live successfully,
    How do I know? The Bible tells me so!

    Shalom :D

    Thank you all so much, Scarlett, GrannyGumbo,
    and Alliswell! I'm starting to sing around the
    house, since I no longer sing in churches, and
    these are some of the songs I could not remem-
    ber the words for. It was driving me NUTS!

    Some of the songs from this era were really
    nice, a real musical heritage, and I want my
    grandchildren to hear them--especially the
    religious songs, but even some of the other
    songs from this era were good.

    I remember hearing these on the radio, along
    with the "secular" songs. Remember that,
    GrannyGumbo? They would play songs like
    "Alley Oop" followed by "He," then "The Autumn
    Leaves," "I Left My Heart In San Francisco," then
    "Don't Send Those Kids to Sunday School."

    Remember "He" and "Don't Send Those Kids to
    Sunday School?" I don't have the words for He,
    but it was beautiful. It needs to be sung publicly
    again. It needs to be rerecorded by someone
    with a great voice or brought back out of the
    archives in its original form.

    I remember some of "Don't Send Those Kids . . ."

    Some boys are good boys,
    Some boys are not;
    You can tell by every boy
    What kind of dad he's got!

    Don't send those kids to Sunday school;
    Get out of bed and take 'em!
    You wouldn't wanna go by yourself,
    Don't let them feel forsaken!
    Don't send those kids to Sunday school,
    Ggo right along with the golden rule,
    Do everything that a dad should do,
    Get out of bed and take them!

    Does anyone know the rest?

    Then they would play, "It Is No Secret." I love
    that song and recently bought an Elvis CD just to
    have that song around the house.

    That was an era when much of such music was
    acceptable on popular radio stations, due mainly
    to Dale and Roger Evans, Elvis Presley, and
    Tennessee Ernie Ford.

    Speaking of T.E. Ford, he did "Sixteen Tons."
    Well, that is a fun song to sing, and I really did
    want my grandchildren to have that song, but
    I did not care for some of the words, which a
    child would certainly not understand as the
    writer intended, so I changed them. Now, every-
    time the older ones get in my car, they say, "Sing
    that sixteen tons song." Here is how we know
    that part of it:

    "Ya' dig sixteen tons, and what do ya' get?
    Another day older and deeper in debt!
    So don't ya' dare calll me, cause I can't go:
    I owe my money to the company store!"

    T.E. Ford also sang a song called "This Old
    House." I am sure a search will find those words,
    but it was a good song.

    Hey Abiyah,

    The first song Scarlett found was the right one.

    This is one of my favorite Gospel songs.

    It's an old traditional song that is usually credited to the Stanley Brothers, who have the most well known version of the song.

    Ricky Skaggs has done it solo and with his band, Boone Creek, on their "One Way Track" album.

    Patty Lovelace also has a very nice version (featuring Ricky Skaggs and Travis Tritt, who's turning more and more to bluegrass every time he opens his mouth - c'mon Trav, you can do it) on her "Mountain Soul" album.

    Although it's not credited to him, the style of the song is so much like Carl Story that I'd be surprised if he didn't have a hand in writing the modern version of the song.

    Mike

    you mentioned, but I could probably order these
    at my local CD store. Thank you, Smoke Eater!

    Abiyah, the first beautiful musical scrolling e-mail I ever received came from my grandchildren's favorite website:

    http://www.mamarocks.com

    Click on Inspirational and you will find that beautiful 'He' in the lineup and many more oldies plus some new ones.

    They are all e-mailable.

    Shalom :D

    Hello, Alliswell. I believe I neglected to properly welcome you this forum.

    Welcome. ;)

    Thank you, AllisWell! Unfortunately, I cannot hear
    the music on my present system, but I hope to
    switch over soon. I saved it.

    I was guilty with nothing to ____ (say?)
    And they were coming to take me away
    But a voice from Heaven was heard that said,
    "Let her go! Take me instead!"

    But I should have been crucified
    I should have suffered, bled, and died
    I should have hung on that cross in disgrace,
    But Jesus, God's Son, took my place.

    I like that song.

    Every time I hear it, I think of "There Goes My Everything". The two sound alike and I think it's funny that the same people who wouldn't let "There Goes My Everything" into their churches because it's "sensual" have no problem playing "I Should Have Been Crucified".
