The Only One

Editor’s Note: LSC member Rev. Paul Abernathy rediscovers his rock and roll past with a classic love ballad.  I wish I had his music, or may he just wrote the words.  He didn’t say.  If you have any musical talents for these words, let us know!  Send an email to contact@eliastobias.net and put “The Only One Music” in the subject line.

The Only One

Music intro

I want you to understand
I will do anything I can
To prove to you I’m your man.
This is no teenage crush.
I’ve known you ling enough.
Your smile gives me a rush.
This is no silly love song
About an affair that went wrong.
I want to hold you for a long, long time.
Chorus
You are the only one for me.
You are the only one for me.
You are the only one for me.
It’s the way it has to be.
You are the only one for me.

I want you to understand
I will do anything I can
To prove to you I’m your man.
This is no teenage crush.
I’ve known you ling enough.
Your smile gives me a rush.
This is no silly love song
About an affair that went wrong.
I want to hold you for a long, long time.
You’ll always be more than a friend of mine.
Chorus
You are the only one for me.
You are the only one for me.
You are the only one for me.
I will do anything to make you see
You are the only one for me.

Instrumental bridge with guitar solo

I want you to understand
I will do anything I can
To prove to you I’m your man.
Chorus
You are the only one for me.
You are the only one for me.
You are the only one for me.
I will do anything to make you see
You are the only one for me.

I want to be a witness

A song lyric from LSC brother Rev. Paul Abernathy, from his church’s choir.

I want to be a witness

I want to be a witness (to be a witness-bass),
I want to be a witness (to be a witness-bass),
I want to be a witness (to be a witness-bass),
I want to be a witness to your love, Lord (together).
I’m a soldier for your crown (soldier for your crown-bass),
I’m a soldier for your crown (soldier for your crown-bass),
I’m a soldier for your crown (soldier for your crown-bass),
I’m a soldier for your crown, saved by our love (together).
They need to hear the message (to hear the message-bass),
They need to hear the message (to hear the message-bass),
They need to hear the message (to hear the message-bass),
They need to hear the message Christ died for us (together).
Christ can remove all your sins (remove all your sins-bass)
Christ can remove all your sins (remove all your sins-bass)
Christ can remove all your sins (remove all yoru sins-bass)
Christ can remove all your sins if you let him (together).
Believe Jesus is your Lord (Jesus is your Lord-bass)
Believe Jesus is your Lord (Jesus is your Lord-bass)
Believe Jesus is your Lord (Jesus is your Lord-bass)
Believe Jesus is your Lord, and you’ll be saved (together)
This is the key to His Grace (key to His Grace-bass),
This is the key to His Grace (key to His Grace-bass),
This is the key to His Grace (key to His Grace-bass),
This is the key to His Grace for a new life (together),
I’m a soldier for your crown, saved by our love (together).
They need to hear the message Christ died for us (together).
Christ can remove all your sins if you let him (together).
Believe Jesus is your Lord, and you’ll be saved (together)
I want to be a witness (to be a witness-bass),
I want to be a witness (to be a witness-bass),
I want to be a witness (to be a witness-bass),
I want to be a witness to your love, Lord (together).

To My Son

lsc-t-shirtlogo.jpg

A poem by Brother Paul Abernathy

To My Son

On this important day, you are 21,
And you are my legacy, my only son.
By law, you’re now your own man,
And you need to know where to stand.

There is much you’ve already learned,
But I have pause to be concerned.
There is much more you need to know.
These are lessons learned as you get old.

I know it’s just a matter of time that
Leaving here will come to your mind.
Soon you’ll go and live on your own, and
then a woman will come to your home.

Choices made now affect the rest of your life,
And only one woman will ever be your wife.
You can still have lots of fun along the way.
Love is a real game we all have to play.

Enjoy the this party tonight and drink some beers,
And then the next morning will soon be here.
Tomorrow’s another day, and you’ll be your own man.
If you stumble and need help, I’ll do whatever I can.
