about

This is a collection of songs written for special music I performed for church, over the years.

Most instruments, MIDI programing, engineering and vocals were by Bruce Bergh

Track Name: Make A Joyful Noise (KJV Psalm 98)
MAKE A JOYFUL NOISE
Written by Bruce Bergh
Inspired by Psalms 98 KJV


Hands, to strum the chords of life
Feet, to keep the beat.
Voice, to shout and tell about what He's done for me.
Ears, to hear the simple truth. Eyes, to see the light.
Heart, to feel His presence when His love is in your life.

Everything I have is a gift from Him,
And when I have the urge to thank Him and rejoice,
I live out the Psalms of what King David said,
And make a joyful noise!

CHORUS:
Make a joyful noise, make a joyful noise.
Make a joyful noise, make a joyful noise.

Tongue, to tell of His great love
Fingers, to point the way.
Legs, to bring Him to the world
as He walks with us day by day.
Arms to hold out and reach for Him.
A free will to make the choice
To build your life upon His promises and
thank Him with a joyful noise.

CHORUS
Make a joyful noise, make a joyful noise.
Make a joyful noise, make a joyful noise.

Pluck the string, Beat the drum,
Make a lot of noise tell what the Lord has done.
Clap your hands, stomp your feet,
Tell the world what they need to make their life complete.
Ring the bells, give a shout.
It's up to us to get the message out!
Use your voice, give them a choice,
Just make a Joyful Noise!

CHORUS
Make a joyful noise, make a joyful noise.
Make a joyful noise, make a joyful noise.
Make a joyful noise, make a joyful noise.
Make a joyful noise, make a joyful noise.

Track Name: Daddy
Daddy
Written by Bruce Bergh


He greets me with a hug as he welcomes me back home.
His smile's a welcome sight for me to see.
The spirit in his laughter brings back years of memories.
It's great to have him back again with me.

"Daddy", the first word that I'd ever say.
I know he still remembers the day I called out his name.
"Daddy". He gave me everything that I had.
Lord, thanks for every moment with Dad when I said "Daddy".


She greets me with a hug, as she welcomes me back home.
Her smile's a welcome sight for these poor eyes.
The joyful sounds of laughter warms this weary traveler's heart.
She speaks her precious words which make me sigh:

"Daddy", the sweetest sound that I've ever heard.
My heart melts whenever the word is spoken to me.
"Daddy", a small voice calling for me,
Lord, help me answer patiently, when I hear "Daddy".


He'll greet me with a hug as He welcomes me back home.
The welcome sights and sounds of heaven ring.
Joyous spirits singing the praises of His name,
The Universal Father, Lord and King!

"Daddy", the sweetest sound that He ever hears.
He's tuned into my life with both ears, listening for me.
"Daddy", a small voice calling for Thee.
Lord, help me to wait patiently when I pray "Daddy".

Heavenly Love (Got a Hold of Me )
Written by Bruce Bergh


It’s picking me up, never let me down
The love of the Holy Spirit has turned my life around
Living each day with the promise of His Word
I can feel His love flow through me
And I want to tell it to the world.

Heavenly Love shining down on me
Heavenly Love’s got a hold of me.

Everywhere I turn, Everything I see
Puts my life into perspective, yes,
God’s been good to me.
So I live my life an example of His love
Thanking Him for the blessings
That come down from up above.

Heavenly Love shining down on me
Heavenly Love’s got a hold of me.

Instrumental

Heavenly Love shining down on me
Heavenly Love’s got a hold of me.
Heavenly Love shining down on me
Heavenly Love’s got a hold of me.

Track Name: Ticket For You
Ticket For You
Written by Bruce Bergh


I don’t have to work my way to heaven.
My ticket is PAID IN FULL.
I don’t have to worry ‘bout a single thing,
It says so in the Bible.
All I have to do is trust in Jesus,
Accept His gift of grace.
Heaven is my final destination
My Lord is present every place!

Fishin’ on the bank of the mighty Mississippi
Cruisin’ on a ship at sea
Dreaming as I float down a lazy river-
Jesus is always with me.

Riding down a country lane
Skiing down a mountain side
Snorkling in Australia
Splashin’ down a water slide
All you have to do is trust in Jesus
Accept His gift of grace
Join me standing in His glory
When He greets us face to face!

Instrumental

Shootin’ down the rapids of the Colorado River
Or tanning in the Costa Rica sun
Parachuting out a plane at 30 thousand feet-
Jesus is for everyone.

Anywhere that you can be, He will be there too.
Jesus is the only way to heaven
And He’s got a ticket for you
And He’s got a ticket for you
And He’s got a ticket for you

Track Name: When He Comes For Me
When He Comes for Me
Written by Bruce Bergh


I look at my precious children.
I look at my lovely wife.
I look at the things around me.
I've been blessed with a wonderful life.
But, when I look at the eternal picture
It's like the blinking of an eye.
So, I set my sights on Jesus
And my mansion in the sky.

When He comes for me,
When He calls my name for glory
I'll come runnin' with my arms stretched open wide.
I've had my share of earthly hassles,
I'm ready for His heavenly castles
I'll come runnin' when He calls for me.

Look over River Jordan,
Look over Ohio.
Look at God's rightous people,
Tryin' hard to make this earth their home.
They all know what's comin'
Just around this river's bend.
Cries of hallelujahs
When this earthly life does end!

When He comes for me,
When He calls my name for glory
I'll come runnin' with my arms stretched open wide.
I've had my share of earthly hassles,
I'm ready for His heavenly castles
I'll come runnin' when He calls for me.

Track Name: I'm A Believer
I’m a Believer
Written by Bruce Bergh


You said sometime back that You really loved me so.
I just turned my head and acted like I didn’t know.
On my own I wound up with a broken dirty heart
I should have stayed together with You from the very start
But You believed in me, so I’ll never stop believing in You.

I’m a believer but I can’t believe the way my life has changed,
It’s all rearranged.
I’m a believer, but I can’t believe that it’s ME saying these things!
Since You came into my life everything is clear,
It’s like You turned on a light.
I’m a believer, but I can’t believe what’s happening to me.

Now we walk side by side, together day by day
I try very hard to keep our love growing that way.
Sometimes I slip and slide and even fall down on my face,
But You are always there to put my life back in it’s place
‘Cause You believe in me, so I’ll never stop believing in You.

I’m a believer but I can’t believe the way my life has changed,
It’s all rearranged.
I’m a believer, but I can’t believe that it’s ME saying these things!
Since You came into my life everything is clear,
It’s like You turned on a light.
I’m a believer, but I can’t believe what’s happening to me.

I can’t hold back these feelings from my heart down deep inside.
I want to shout and tell the world I’m Yours, and You are mine.
You help me grow stronger with the love You always bring.
You gave my life new meaning which makes me want to sing:

I’m a believer but I can’t believe the way my life has changed,
It’s all rearranged.
I’m a believer, but I can’t believe that it’s ME saying these things!
Since You came into my life everything is clear,
It’s like You turned on a light.
I’m a believer, but I can’t believe what’s happening to me.

Track Name: Father's Love
Father's Love
Written by Bruce Bergh


She says "Daddy, can you tie my shoe?"
He helps her with her problem then He says "I love you".
Little children leaning on their dad
He's delighted in their goodness, disappointed when bad.
The image of the father is seen through a child
and passes on from age to age.
All reflect the image of the Father above.
Like children we desire the need for Father's love.

I know He's planned my steps along the way.
I know that He will never go away.
I know it's growing stronger day by day,
Father's love. My Father's love.

He says "That's all!", and the law is laid.
But, I act just like a baby when I can't get my way.
So I fight it. Overstep my bounds.
But every time I do it my way my world comes tumblin' down.

From my limited perspective it's hard to understand
the logic of my future as you reviel your plan.
Sometimes it seems I'm walking backwards and I feel that I should stop,
But you can see much clearer from the very top.

I know He's planned my steps along the way.
I know that He will never go away.
I know it's growing stronger day by day,
Father's love. My Father's love.

Instumental

Look in a mirror. Open your eyes.
See the reflection of the Father.
He's looking within you.
Deep into your heart.
There's so much that He can do for you.

I know He's planned my steps along the way.
I know that He will never go away.
I know it's growing stronger day by day,
Father's love. My Father's love.

Joy that fills my soul, Blessings overflow
Everywhere I go, You are there to love me
Fountain deep and wide, When I’m by Your side

Yet, much more, You do bless me.

Joy that fills my soul, Blessings overflow
Everywhere I go, You are there to love me
Fountain deep and wide, When I’m by Your side
I know You’ll provide, You are there to love me

Track Name: More Time
MORE TIME
Written by Bruce Bergh


I catch myself running in circles
Places to go, people to see, projects to do.
Busywork keeps multiplying
But what does it mean?
It's just waisted time when this life's through.

Look at all the time we spend building up our empires,
Which are all like castles made of sand.
They stand so tall but wash away forever!
In the future what will stand in the place they now comand?

(So I'm gonna spend) More time in love with You,
Spend more time on things that last forever.
Let Your will direct my life
Let Your love shine through me in every endeavor.
More time talking to You,
To let Your words refresh and make my life new.
So every day, in every way,
I'm gonna spend much more time loving You.

You're the very reason for my life. and I Thank You,
For the blessings, and love, and forgiveness You've given to me.
To my family and freinds that I meet along the way,
An example I will be, of Your love for all to see.

(So I'm gonna spend) More time in love with You,
Spend more time on things that last forever.
Let Your will direct my life,
Let Your love shine through me in every endeavor.
More time talking to You,
To let Your words refresh and make my life new.
So every day, in every way
I'm gonna spend much more time loving You.
I need to spend much much more time loving You.

Track Name: Thank You (Psalm 92)
Psalm 92 (The Message) & (NIV)
A psalm. A song. For the Sabbath day.


1-3 What a beautiful thing, Lord, to give thanks, to sing an anthem to you, the High God!
To announce your love each daybreak,
sing your faithful presence all through the night, accompanied by dulcimer and harp,
the full-bodied music of strings.

4 For you make me glad by your deeds, O LORD;
I sing for joy at the works of your hands.

5 How great are your works, O LORD,
how profound your thoughts!

6 The senseless man does not know,
fools do not understand,

7 that though the wicked spring up like grass
and all evildoers flourish,
they will be forever destroyed.

8 But you, O LORD, are exalted forever.


Thank You (Psalms 92)
Written by Bruce Bergh & King David


I just want to give THANKS for everything,
For kindness that You give.
I just want to proclaim Your faithfulness,
Without You I can’t live.
The things that You do are too hard to explain
To someone who just can’t understand.
Your truth will prevail, Your love never fails,
I rejoice at the work of Your hands!

So THANKS for everything,
For blessings that You bring.
I just want to exalt and praise Your name,
You make me want to sing!
Great are Your works, O Lord,
You're worthy to be adoured
Now You live in me and my soul is set free!

And I want to say THANK YOU, THANK YOU,
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, Oooo!

Yes, I want to say THANK YOU, THANK YOU,
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, Oooo!

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, Oooo!

I just want to say THANK YOU, THANK YOU,
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, Oooo!

Paradise (Luke 23:43)
Written by Bruce Bergh

A tropical breeze blowing through my hair.
A cabana by the sea.
Sailboats cruising 'cross the water.
The palm trees sway as the sun shines on me.
This is my vision of perfection,
Within the boundaries of this earthly plane.
But, it can't compare to what I have waiting
When I meet the Father, Son, and all my friends in...

CHORUS:
Paradise, Paradise...
Like nothing you have ever seen before!
Paradise, oh, Paradise...
I'll meet you in Paradise!

I've had a glimpse of my salvation
By the way He has changed me within.
And, I believe a better life awaits me
Separated from temptation and sin.
So, I'm investing in the ultimate destination
For my future in eternity.
I put my trust in the final words of Jesus
As He said, on the cross, "Today...You'll be with me in..."

Paradise, Paradise...
Like nothing you have ever seen before!
Paradise, oh, Paradise...
I'll meet you in Paradise!

We'll step out of space, out of time,
To a new world we can't comprehend with our mind.
No sickness, no sorrow, unending tomorrows,
Perfection, enlightenment untold.
The streets paved with gold; new bodies, young and old.
Real peace, understanding, as we stand hand in hand in..

Paradise, Paradise...
Like nothing you have ever seen before!
Paradise, oh, Paradise...
I'll meet you in Paradise!

I don't know the time, or the place, or the year
When my life on this earth will be through.
But I do know that a "paradise" awaits
With an open invitation for me and you.
If you believe that your soul will live eternally,
And put your faith in Christ, God's Son,
To guide you through your 'earthly' years,
Then, I'll see you there, when we meet again in...

Paradise, Paradise...
Like nothing you have ever seen before!
Paradise, oh, Paradise...
I'll meet you in Paradise!

I'll meet you in Paradise,
Eternity will be so nice. `
I'll meet you in beautiful Paradise!
