    This is the Album that "iTunes" didn't want you to see. They Changed the Copyrighted (2/9/17) Title of the Album, which is: "A Cup of Cold Water - Catholic", without asking me. It's currently available at the "iTunes" Store for $9.90 and "Apple Music's" Browse for Free if you have a Subscription, under the Title: "A Cup of Cold Water" with B&W Cover Art. This Album is Far Superior to iTunes' version, as you can Download this Album in Apple AIFF PCM signed 16 bit, 48 kHz Sample Rate, 1536 kbps Bit Rate, Stereo Format, iTunes' Format is the "Lossy" AAC 44.1 kHz Sample Rate, 256 kbps Bit Rate Stereo Format, which frankly doesn't have the "Presence" of my Formatted Audio Files. I hope you enjoy access to an Album that Sounds the way I Engineered it to Sound.

Standing on the Edge of Darkness, Do you see the Light? Although the Enemy surrounds you, You will be All-right. The Image of a Brighter Day, will Be with you Tonight, To God the Father each we Pray: Guard us Through this Night, 'Till Morning brings the Promise of Forgotten Dreams, And the Love that it Seems that we All truly Need. His Love is like a tiny Flower, which will be Blooming in your Hands, So, dream your Dreams of Ageless Wonder, and Castles in the Sand. Kneeling now to Greet the ‘Morrow, Feel the Stream of Life, Cleansing All of Death and Sorrow, Sacrament Sublime. Years from now you'll Know the Day, He Came into your Life: To God the Father each we Pray: Receive this Child of Light. Accept his Soul that he might see Eternity, That his Whole Life will be truly Pleasing to Thee. And as we Stand Together Now, Sharing the Love within our Heart: Listen, the Morning sings for Joy, and the Heavenly Host Replies:
I call you My children and I AM, a Father Who Loves you as a man: who Awakens one Morning to Behold what he's Made, and Discovers Infinity, a Timeless Promenade. It's the Song of Creation, it's the Life that I Bring: in My Image and Likeness were you Born, and Through you will Freedom Ring. Oh, one Day you'll be Sighing, on your Upward Climb You’ll See: when The Way becomes Narrow, I will Give You Faith to Follow, at the End of your Journey you'll find Me at the End of your Journey you'll find Me Now sometimes you see Me as The Son, the Gift to a People as the Chosen One. You were Lonely and Crying, at the Mess that you'd Made, so, I Called to My Father, and the Ransom I Paid. It's a Mystery Unfolding, it's the Song that I Sing: through the Eyes of your Neighbor do I Come, and to you My Presence Bring. Oh, one Day you'll be Crying, and the Time will come to Be: when I'll Tap you on the Shoulder and your Hope will grow Bolder, and the Truth will set you Free, and My Truth will set you Free. And Sometimes you see Me as a Dove: the Spirit of Sharing which is Love. And if you Want to Fly with Me, here is What you must Do: Listen Brothers and Sisters, I'm Talking to you. Give Yourselves to each Other Share your Love share your Hearts. Use the Gifts you've been Given, Be a Channel of Love from the Heart. Oh, one Day you'll be Laughing, and your Seeds of Charity Will Bloom: through the People around you you will See that I have Found you, and the Image of My Love will be in you, and the Image of My Love will be you.
As surely as Sunshine is Warm, I have felt your Heart searching for Me, in Looking for Someone to Share the bright Colors of Dawn with. Come to Me now with these People You Love, together I'll show you The Way: to Seek out the Truth you can Share in your Souls past the End of the Day that Eternity Passes Away. I See you more Clearly than Shimmering Moonlight in Springtime, Off and Away you can Fly with my Joy as your Heart's Song. Now that you've Taken me into your Lives, do you See how you've set yourself Free: by Choosing to Share with Eternity's Children, this Banquet of Joy which is Filled with more Life than the Sea. Kneeling alone to Drink from the Spring of Salvation, the Spirit Which Brings Us Together is Singing in Fresh, clean Water. You've only to Ask and I'll be there for you, Infinity's Hymn is for Love to come True: our Journey Forever begins at this Table, Rejoice at the Mystery of Life which you've helped to Renew.
Now when you Recognize Me when I come into your Presence, will you Listen to these Words I have to Say to you: That I am Here beside you every Minute of the Day and all that I will ever ask of you: is to Love Me, will you Try? you for Whom I hung upon the Cross to Die. Will you Laugh? Will you Cry? Will you Hold My Hand in Yours until you Die?
Hush little Baby and don't you Cry, you know your Mamma, she was Born to Die, All my Trials Lord, soon be Over. I had a little Book was Given to me, and Every Page, spelled Liberty, All my Trials Lord, soon be Over. Too late my Brothers, but Never Mind, All my Trials Lord, soon be Over. The River Jordan is Chilly and Cold, it Chills the Body, but it Warms the Soul, All my Trials Lord, soon be Over. There is a Tree in Paradise, and the Pilgrims call it, the Tree of Life, All my Trials Lord, soon be Over. Too late my Brothers, too late but Never Mind, All my Trials Lord, soon be Over.
CHORUS We will Stand up Together, in the Unity of God. We will Stand up Together, to Show our Children Love. We will Stand up Together, to Face the World Today. We will Stand up Together, and through Jesus' Heart We Pray: There Is no Human Progress, when Everything Conspires: To give Full Reign to Instincts, of Self-interest, Lust and Power. We must Find a Simple Way to Live, to Serve Humanity: We must Open to our Brothers, and our Sisters who have Needs CHORUS We are Troubled by Reports, of Destructive Weaponry: And as Christians we're Divided, we're not yet One Family. But we Reaffirm the Right to Life, of Children, yet Unborn: Help us Jesus gentle Savior, to withstand the World's Scorn CHORUS Faced with All Life's Disappointments Lord, we Slip and often Fall: But with Your Help and Intercession, we can Answer to Your Call: To Resist Manipulation, and All the World holds Dear. Gentle Father shed Your Wisdom, on Your People gathered Here. CHORUS
We'll all go Down to the Place by the River of Life: where we'll See the Savior in His Glory, And He'll look at You, through the Eyes of the Giver of Life: then you'll See the Love that is His Story. Will you Run Will you Hide, Will you Laugh or Will You Cry? Will you Fall on your Knees, From the Feeling Inside you? When you See that the Choice that you've Made with your Living: is the Answer You Take to His Heart which is Love. As He Offers His Life to the Children who are Willing: will You Finally Glad be Chosen from Above? Eternity can be Yours: an End to all your Sorrow. Well it might Be a million Years, or It could be Tomorrow: When We'll all go Down to the Place by the River of Life where we'll See the Savior in His Glory . . .
