about

'be still' is a collection of original songs written by Buddy Fanjoy and performed simply with acoustic guitar and vocal. Songs written out of personal experiences and also taken from the book of Psalms and other scriptures put to music.

My hope is that these songs will bring you peace in turmoil, hope in times of hopelessness and a deep trust in Him who has everything under control. Buddy

Track Name: You Alone
For You alone O Lord
Can provide all my needs
And I will look to no other
You alone sustain me

Through the raging storm when by myself I can’t stand
When the dark clouds fill my eyes don’t let go of my hand

For You alone O Lord
Can provide all my needs
And I will look to no other
You alone sustain me

Through the desert of doubt in this dry and weary land
May Your Spirit lead me on and don’t let go of my hand

For You alone O Lord
Can provide all my needs
And I will look to no other
You alone sustain me
Track Name: He Chose
He chose the place for the Holy Birth
No palace filled with riches of earth
The Lord of Glory robed in loves pure light
Chose the manger of straw and wood
With love He chose that night

He chose to walk this unholy place
Not remain in heaven but come face to face
The Lord of Glory touched the frail and week
He chose the lowly and common man
With love He chose to seek

He chose the cross for redemption's plan
No sword to punish sinful man
The Lord of Glory knew all else would fail
He chose the cross and the crown of thorns
With love He chose the nails
With love He chose the nails
Track Name: Psalm 18
I love You, Oh Lord, I Love You Oh Lord my strength
I love You, Oh Lord, I Love You Oh Lord my strength
I Love You Oh Lord my strength.

The Lord is my rock, my fortress, my deliverer
My God is my rock in whom I take refuge
He is my shield and the horn of my salvation
My stronghold

I call to the Lord, Who is worthy of praise
I call to the Lord, and I am saved, from my enemies
Track Name: Psalm 61
Hear my cry, O God
Listen to my prayer.
From the ends of the earth I call to You,
I call as my heart grows faint;
Lead me to the Rock that is higher than I.

For You have been my refuge,
A strong tower against the foe.
I long to dwell in Your tent forever
And take refuge in the shelter of Your wings.

Take refuge in the shelter of Your wings...

For You, God, have heard my vows;
You have given me the heritage of those who fear your name.
O God, Your Holy Name
You've given me the holy heritage.

You've given me the holy heritage...
Track Name: Whatever It Takes
I see so many things in me
Are far from what You are
There's still so many kingdoms that I own
But Lord I want to yield my life
For serving You is by far
The greatest joy that I have ever known

You are the potter
I am the clay
Hold me, mold me
In Your special way
Take me in Your loving hands
Complete what you've begun
Whatever it takes make me more like Jesus, Your Son

I need to know You better Lord
For I know what lies in me
Take whatever measure You must use
To bring me to the place where I
No longer live but You
For Your holy road is the only road I choose
Track Name: By Your Grace
I bow before Your gracious throne
With no works that I can call my own
It’s only by Your sacrifice,
The blood You shed to pay the price.
To free the heavy laden soul,
And make the desolate now whole
The agony of death You bore
That gave me life forever more.

By Your Grace I now stand,
By Your Grace I now stand
It’s not by works lest I should boast,
But the mercies of the Lord of Hosts.
By Your Grace I now stand,
By Your Grace I now stand
No righteous deeds of my own
To enter Your glorious throne
Where Your goodness I can taste...
It’s only by Your Grace, only by Your Grace.

I stand before You knowing well
If there’s anything of worth at all,
Comes only from Your loving heart,
The love that’s been there from the start
Redeeming, changing, glorified,
Work of grace by the One crucified
My debt was paid in full that day,
Your blood washed all my sins away.
Track Name: Gentle Whisper
Not in the wind
Not in the earthquake
Not in the fire
Not in the mighty wind that blows

In the gentle whisper
In the still, small voice
In the gentle whisper
In the still, small voice
Track Name: God Of Abraham
God of Abraham, use me here I am
To do Thy will
Tell me what to do, my life's serving You
Here I am

Obeying You is my desire
Cleanse me with Your holy fire
Lord I want to follow You
In everything I say and do

Everything I see around me
Will one day all be gone
Nothing shall last
But only what I do
For the kingdom to come

You called to Abram
And he left it all behind
A pilgrim in a foreign land
So I choose to follow
Down that path of life
Led by the Spirits guiding hand
Track Name: In The Distance
In the darkness when life seems so unfair.
When the shadows come, bringing on despair.
I need to trust You, not questioning Your will,
Help me to understand Your ways are higher still

In the distance… lies the answer
Though we may question reasons why,
We must try not to rely on our own understanding.

In the distance… lies the promise
That in the end for those who trust
Through the ashes and the dust
We’ll come through the darkest night shining…
In the distance.

In the quiet when I bow before Your throne,
Realizing that my life is not my own.
Hung in the balance of paradise and pain,
You lead me on to where I trust in You again…

In the distance… beyond the sorrow
There is joy and sweet release
There is laughter, there is peace
And a better, a better understanding.

In the distance… there is heaven
So let us place our hope in Him
Though for awhile it may be dim
We’ll come through the other side shining…

In the distance.
Track Name: God Is Our Refuge (Psalm 46)
God is our refuge, God is our strength
A very present help in trouble
God is our refuge, God is our strength
A very present help in trouble

We will not fear though the earth give way
And the mountains fall to the heart of the sea
Though it’s waters roar and foam
And the mountains quake with their swelling pride

There is a River whose streams
Make glad the city of God
There is a River whose streams
Make glad the city of God
The holy place where the Most High dwells
Track Name: Beatitudes
Blessed are the poor in spirit
For theirs is the kingdom of heaven
Blessed are those who mourn
They will be comforted
Blessed are the meek
For they will inherit the earth
Blessed are those that hunger and thirst for righteousness
For they will be filled

Blessed are the merciful
For they will be shown mercy
Blessed are the pure in heart
They will see God
Blessed are the peacemakers
For they will be called the sons of God
Blessed are they that are persecuted for righteousness
Theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven

Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you
And falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me

Rejoice and be glad,
For great is your reward in heaven...

For in the same way,
They persecuted the Prophets who were before you.
Track Name: Be Still
Sometimes when I get to turning inside
When the dust from the whirlwind blinds my eyes
From seeing the way that He wants me to see
Will I ever learn what He’s trying to tell me

Chasing the wind till it finally dies down
I open my heart to where Truth is found
Seeing the way that He wants me to see
I hope I learned what He’s trying to tell me

Be still and know that I am God
And I will be exalted over all the earth
Be still and know that I am God
And I will be exalted over all the nations, over every nation
