More about Connie Stauffer:
I was raised in Thatcher, Utah, a small town west of Tremonton on the north end of the state. Home is where I enjoy being the most. If I leave, it is usually for something very important. To relax or to waste a few minutes, I gravitate to my piano. My favorite thing to do is to turn out the lights when I'm alone and play to my heart's content. This is one way I find ideas for music. Another place where I've gotten more than a few ideas is when I've been exercising, whether it's walking the trails of Alpine, or riding my road bike. I think about my life and the issues of the day while walking, and those moments frequently end with music rattling through my head. I have a husband, five children and twelve grandchildren - all of whom are the light of my life. I'd rather be with any one of them than just about anything. However, I do enjoy my solitude, which is probably why the hobby of writing music has been so appealing to me. My mother was my music teacher until she said I had outgrown her. I then took from a wonderful lady who helped shape me. Oh how I would love to have a sit-down visit with her. She probably knows me better than anyone, as she was there as I was in the process of becoming. I've been blessed with a husband who is the wind beneath my wings. He's made every possible sacrifice to encourage my music - whether just enjoying playing or writing. Were it not for his support, there is no way I could take it to the level where I can share it. The music on this site is music from my heart over the past 38+ years. It has been my solace through hard times and my joy through the good times. Much of it was "unsolicited" by me; it just came. Some of it has come through assignments or good people trusting me with their lyrics. All of it has been a miracle in my own eyes, as it was not something for which I was trained. My fingers somehow knew how to produce what was rattling through my head and by brute force it has found its way to paper. I hope you will enjoy it and let me know how you are using it. My website has much of what is here plus a lot of songs that do not fall into the "Sacred Music" genre. Feel free to visit it. I love suggestions and comments!
Song background:

This hymn was the product of a music class I took at UVU in 2005. After I received my grade (It was given an "A", by the way), I added the 2nd and 3rd verses.

Lyrics: 1. As we bow our heads this sacred hours,
We turn to thee for strength and pow'r
To overcome our weakness, Lord, we pray,
Repent and live more like thee each new day.
As we partake this bread and water clear,
Help us remember promises so dear.
That we will cherish the gift of thy dear Son,
The Prince of Life; The Holy One.

2. We have faith that through thy blood our sins
Will be forgiv'n and once again
We can return and in thy presence dwell.
This truth brings joy that lips and tongue can't tell.
As we renew our promises to thee,
Forgive our sins and hear our humble pleas,
For strength to conquer the battles waged within
And through Thy Son, be freed from sin.

3. In Thy blood our souls have been redeemed
Thru sacrifice and love supreme.
Now in our lives may what we do and say
Reflect the love so freely giv'n that day.
Thru acts of service to our fellow men
And thoughts more fully turned to thee in heav'n
Help us to witness of thee and of thy love,
From Christ our Lord, who dwells above.
