Ripple of Hope Collaboration with Scott Horwath 867-5309

Get Flash to see this player.

Collaboration with Scott Horwath 867-5309. Scott posted the music a while back and I had mentioned that I would love to put lyrics to this beautiful arrangement.
Back in January of 2013 my Brother's oldest boy Steven Lichtenberg was diagnosed with inoperable brain cancer. I had no idea that his battle would inspire me to write lyrics to this beautiful song, Steven has been fighting it since 2003 and it keeps coming back after 2 surgeries. Steven underwent chemo and radiation treatments at The Cleveland Clinic from March 11 - April 19th 2013
Steven has had such a positive attitude but I know there are times when he needs hope and I am trying to express that hope to him. Scott Horwath originally called the song Ripple so I just added hope.

Ripple of Hope Music by Scott Horwath 867-5309
Lyrics Jab24 Jim Lichtenberg

Sometimes it’s hard
To understand
Sometimes it feels like the end

But please know that someone cares for you
and please know it’s not the end

Things happen for a reason
Many tears are shed and fall
Hope is in the one who took your place
Truth is He died for you He died for you

I can’t make you believe what I believe
But I know that I just want whats best for you
Just believe Just believe that’s all you have to do
Time goes by like a ripple on the water
There’s no time to leave important words unsaid

Hope comes down like rain on the water
It’s falling washing all the fear away, away, away

Just Listen just Listen and you’ll hear it fall like rain

It’s clearly comes from Love
Just look at the stars above
My heart still cries inside for many reasons
Many times we search for a reason
Everything has it’s time and it’s season
But it’s covered It’s covered It’s covered by his Love

Hope is in the one who loves you the most ,who loves you most
and gave his life for you.

You married your gorgeous vocals to Scott's lovely instrumental like they were written together, and they make more than a complete piece of music (a little hyperbole, but what the heck). Really, it is a beautiful, heartfelt tribute and inspirational composition.
