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, <br/>We turn to thee for strength and pow'r <br/>To overcome our weakness, Lord, we pray, <br/>Repent and live more like thee each new day. <br/>As we partake this bread and water clear, <br/>Help us remember promises so dear. <br/>That we will cherish the gift of thy dear Son, <br/>The Prince of Life; The Holy One. <br/> <br/>2. We have faith that through thy blood our sins <br/>Will be forgiv'n and once again <br/>We can return and in thy presence dwell. <br/>This truth brings joy that lips and tongue can't tell. <br/>As we renew our promises to thee, <br/>Forgive our sins and hear our humble pleas, <br/>For strength to conquer the battles waged within <br/>And through Thy Son, be freed from sin. <br/> <br/>3. In Thy blood our souls have been redeemed <br/>Thru sacrifice and love supreme. <br/>Now in our lives may what we do and say <br/>Reflect the love so freely giv'n that day. <br/>Thru acts of service to our fellow men <br/>And thoughts more fully turned to thee in heav'n <br/>Help us to witness of thee and of thy love, <br/>From Christ our Lord, who dwells above. <br/>
