about

Ellen Lockwood Loughborough, UK

Music and singing were always close by, whether it was her dad's jazz and blues tunes playing around the house, or singing during summer trips over to her Gran's farm in Wadebridge, Cornwall. She now lives in Loughborough in the East Midlands with her husband and cats. ... more

Track Name: I'll Be Following
I’ll be following Jesus
In the night and in the day
I’ll be following Jesus
In the night and in the day
For I found him as my saviour
And so I follow him today

I’ll be listening and watching
To what He do and what He say
I’ll be listening and watching
To what He do and what He say
He sends his truth and light
So I won’t stray along the way

For He won me fair and square, when we met He pardoned me
And He changed this very heart and He set a captive free

So, I’ll be following Jesus
Until He comes or calls me home
I’ll be following Jesus
Until He comes or calls me home
He has promised to be faithful
I will never be alone
Track Name: Cherish You
She told me a little of her life
Her tale focused mostly on the one she’d shared it all with
She gladly but with sorrow gave advice
Don’t waste a day of it
Make the most of it

As I drank her tea and listened to her laugh
Her smile faded as she told me several stories from her past
And again I heard the words I’d heard before
Don’t waste a day of it
Make the most of it

I will cherish you always
I will love you always

And I pray we’re holding hands at 92
And I pray our lips will never tire of saying our ‘I love yous’
Though things change I hope that one thing never will
I’ll make the most of you
Not waste a day with you
Track Name: Hello World
Hello world, may I introduce myself
I’ve been waiting in the wings for quite a while
I’ve been unsure, Filled with some hesitation
But I’m ready to face you all know with a smile

Hello day, you’re looking so beautiful
I’ve been wonderin’ if a song would bring the sun
But if not, it doesn’t really matter
There’s no reason to stop singing once the melodies begun

Chorus
I’m not hiding in the shadows anymore
I’ve hummed a little tune and now I’ve written down the score
It’s a joyful number full of love and laughter too
I’m just happy to be singing to myself the world and you

Hello Doubt, you’ve been an unwelcome friend
And now I’m finally showing you the door
Please don’t write and don’t come around and call for tea
You never had an interest in what was best for me
Track Name: No More
I’m letting go
I’m drawing the line
I’m lifting my gaze
And I’m stepping over
I’m closing the lid
I’m shutting the door
I’ve walked that way for a while
But I don’t need it no more

Sometimes you’ve just got to say no more,
no, no, no, no, no, no more
And pray for the strength to keep walking ahead

Taking hold of His hand
I’m moving His way
I’ll cling to his side
My decision is made
Track Name: You Carry Me
With new eyes
And fresh faith
I am ready to meet your gaze again
It has been a long time my friend

Take my fears
My mistakes
Bury them deep within your waves of grace
And let them wash over me, again

Pre-chorus:
And as the sun rises
I will say
‘A new day has come!’
And as each day passes
I leave them all in Your hands of love

Chorus
You carry me
Shepherd to this sheep
Wind to this eagle
Light in the dark
Strength when I falter
Let my praise be an altar
To Your great love
