By Your Side - CD by Gloucester Salvation Army

CD-web.pngBy Your Side was recorded live in May 2016 by the Band and Songsters of Gloucester Salvation Army in aid of the work of The Salvation Army in Athens. Members of Gloucester Salvation Army, having seen first-hand the efforts being made to support migrants, refugees and those affected by the significant economic crisis in Greece, have been raising funds to help fellow Salvationists in Athens. The work in Athens has also recently featured in the BBC documentary, Paul O'Grady: the Sally Army and Me.

The CD features the Gloucester Salvation Army Band, under the leadership of Cliff Matthews, and Gloucester Salvation Army Songsters, led by Phil Webb, and also includes piano solos by Cliff Matthews and vocal solos by Phil Webb. Copies can be obtained from Gloucester Salvation Army for a minimum donation of £5 towards The Salvation Army's work in Athens (plus P&P where necessary).

The words associated with the tune 'Lavenham' featured in track 12 are:

Lord, there are times when I have to ask, 'What?' –
Times when your love is not easy to spot.
What is life's purpose and what of me here?
Grant me some answers, Lord, make your will clear.

Lord, there are times when I have to ask, 'How?' –
Times when what’s preached doesn't square with life now.
Wrestling with doubt I ask, 'How can this be?'
Grant me some answers, Lord, help me to see.

Lord, there are times when the questions run fast –
Times when I fear that my faith may not last.
Help me, support me, Lord, help me get through.
Lead me through darkness till light shines anew.
