Fidelity

Jamie’s first solo album, Fidelity may not be quite the mature work of later years, but the excellent musicianship, powerful songwriting, and strong biblical base are very much in evidence. An enjoyable, edifying set of songs.

Psalm 19


© Jamie Soles Jan 22 1989

Sample

Day after day the skies proclaim
Night after night they display
The knowledge of the God of glory
And the works of His hands
Their voice goes out through all the lands

There is no speech or language
Where their voice is not heard
Their word goes out to the ends of the world
The ends of the world

The law of the Lord is perfect, it revives my soul
I can trust what He says to make me wise
The precepts of the Lord are right
Giving joy to my heart
The commands of the Lord give light to my eyes

There is no speech or language....

The fear of the Lord is pure, enduring forever
The sayings of the Lord are sure and right
They are more desirable than gold
And sweeter than honey from the comb

There is no speech or language....

By them is Your servant warned
In keeping them is great reward
So keep me from my sin
May my thoughts and words today
Be pleasing You in every way O Lord

There is no speech or language....

Trusting in You


© Jamie Soles Mar 5 1984

Sample

Sometimes life gets hard, don’t know just which way to turn
And it seems like one way or another I’m gonna get burned
But Jesus I know that You’re holding my hand
And You’re gonna be there when I need You, helping me stand
Helping me stand, I’m trusting in You

When I see the storm closing in around me
There’s no shelter in sight
and it seems like it’s gonna drown me
But You’re a rock I can cling to, to weather the storm
And no matter what happens Lord
I’m safe in Your arms
I’m safe in Your arms,
I’m trusting in You
Trusting in You

Jesus when you are near anxieties fade away
My fears and troubles seem to disappear
cause they can no longer stay
Lord in Your marvellous presence I’ll always want to be
Cause Jesus when I am with You
my bonds are loosed and I’m free
I truly am free when I’m trusting in You

Lord I need to trust in You more
Won’t you help me open up my door

Lord by Your hand You uphold me
with strength from heaven above
You take my thoughts from this world full of sin
And surround me with Your love
And when my work here is finished, my final day is done
I know to heaven You’ll take me to live forever with the Son
Forever with the Son
because I’m trusting in You

Beating Heart of Stone


© Jamie Soles Sept 21 1988

Sample

I was stopped by the voice of a blind man along the road today
He asked me if I could lend him a hand to help him on his way
I prayed “O God, You’ve healed the lame
and raised the dead to life
I know it’s not too hard for You to give this blind man sight”
And I walked away
Satisfied I walked away

I was stopped by a beggar man sitting on the walk today
He asked me if I could spare some change
to help him on his way
I asked him “Don’t you feel ashamed
to be seen in such a state
A broken man of poverty whom people love to hate
No money I could give you
would be good enough to change who you are
And I walked away
Satisfied I walked away

And as I turned to go I felt the rain begin to fall
And suddenly I seemed so all alone
I hid behind the shadow of the words that I had said
To justify my beating heart of stone
My beating heart of stone

I saw my friend in the check-out line at the grocery store today
I said “How are you doing?” and he turned to me to say
“My marriage is in trouble and I don’t know what to do
I’m almost at my wits end, I think that it is through”
The meaning of his message somehow never made it through
Until too late, till too late

And as I turned to go I felt the rain begin to fall
And suddenly I seemed so all alone
I hid behind the shadow of my ignorance and fear
To justify my beating heart of stone
And heaven cried today…
I could feel it in the rain
Cause Jesus was here and calling, and I walked away

Kingdom in the Sky


© Jamie Soles Dec 2 1987

Sample

Kingdom, kingdom in the sky
Must I wait until I die
You know I want to come home
Life by faith without a sight
Really whets my appetite
You know I want to come home
I want to come home,
I want to come home

How these earthly days drag on
I can’t wait until they’re gone
You know I want to come home
Won’t You part the clouds for me
And usher in eternity
You know I want to come home
I want to come home,
I want to come home

And I will stand in the promised land
With my Father and my Savior when I get home
I will stand in the promised land
With my Father and my Savior when I get home

Kingdom, kingdom in the sky
I will see you by and by
You know when I get home

Kingdom, kingdom in the sky
Land where I will never die
You know I’m gonna come home
I’ll bid farewell to the land of men
Never to return again
You know I’m gonna come home

Cover Me


© Jamie Soles Jun 13 1988

Sample

Into everybody’s life some rain must fall, I know
When there seems to be no light
And you’re feeling cold, oh I know
When darkness rolls over me
And trouble’s surrounding me
Jesus will cover me, cover me

And in everybody’s life we feel the pain, we feel the pain
When a memory turns the knife
And we’re victimized again and again and again
When evil is all I see
And help seems so far from me
Jesus will cover me, cover me

When I am weak He is strong
He gives me strength to carry on

Into everybody’s life there comes a time to decide
When there seems to be no light, not to run and hide
Cause when darkness rolls over you
And trouble’s surrounding you
Jesus will cover you
Cover you, cover you, cover you

Come to Me


© Jamie Soles Jan 14 1989

Sample

Is there anything to be afraid of in this world
Though the hearts of men are turned against you
Some time ago I walked that road
Never fear, My child, you’re not alone

Is there any reason to be worried for yourself
Never doubt, I’m strong enough to hold you
I am behind you and before you
I am your strength and shield
Don’t be afraid of the darkness

No one can keep My love from you
Please believe Me I only want what’s best for you
And all I have to give I long to give to you
If you would only come to Me

When you feel abused I understand you
Every tear you cry runs down My face
When you are accused I won’t condemn you
You can fall in the shadow of My grace

No one can keep My love from you....

How Long


© Jamie Soles Apr 26 1988

Sample

From the time I was a child
The battle lines were drawn
And though the past is far away
The memories linger on
This war I fight, I fight to win
This race I run to finish what I begin

At times I grow so weary
Though no-one seems to know
When strength just seems to fail me
And the valleys seem so low
The thing that keeps me going
Through sunshine and through rain
The certain hope of glory
You’re coming back again

How long will I wait for You
How long, how I long for You
How long, creation aches for You
But no matter how long
I will wait

My spirit cries for freedom
While encased in mortal chains
So eagerly awaiting the chance to fly again
When morning breaks and time is gone
And all that’s said is done
This mortal man will rise again
Immortal as they come

How long will I wait for You....

The Standard Song


© Jamie Soles Mar 31 1987

Sample

Watch your eyes, they might see
Things they’re not supposed to see
Always screen the things you view
They become a part of you

Have a standard and stand by it
As a safeguard against the devil’s lies
You’ll regret it if you cross that line
It will lead you into compromise
So watch your eyes

Watch your tongue, it might say
Things it’s not supposed to say
Careless words can leave a scar
So stop and think before you go too far

Have a standard and stand by it
May a song of love always be sung
Your neighbor feels the effects of it
He may be blessed or he may be stung
So watch your tongue

Watch your mind, it might think
Things it’s not supposed to think
What you think is what you’ll do
So dwell on what is good for you

Have a standard and stand by it
Don’t be fooled into changing your design
You can choose what you will think about
You can leave those evil thoughts behind
Oh watch your mind

Have a standard and stand by it
May the Lord’s reflection never dim
Victory is certain if you will
Take your thoughts as captives unto Him

All Right With Me


© Jamie Soles Aug 29 1989

Sample

If there is hope for the future
If there is help for the past
If one can reclaim lost innocence
And break the chains at last
If every moment of regret
Can be swept beneath the tide
I will walk upon that shore
And it’s all right with me

If there is another world
In a place beyond the eye
Where the weary heart can go
Where the love will never die
Where the poor man need not beg
Where the hungry shall be fed
I will take the road that leads me there
And it’s all right with me

And if the clouds should hide You
And Your face appear as stone
Should my house be empty
Should the cold wind chill my bones
I will not fear, I will not fear
I will not fear for You are with me

When the sun comes into view
And the night has burned away
I will gaze upon that hill
Where my debt was paid that day
When I breathe the morning air
No delusions will be there
I will be free
And it’s all right, all right with me
Yeah it’s all right, all right with me

You Know


© Jamie Soles Jan 6 1988

Sample

How many hurts must I face, O Lord
Before I hurt no more
Though on my face
There may not be a trace
I’ve learned to hide before

How many dreams must I chase, O Lord
Before I see what is real
And how can I know
The way I should go
Can I lean upon the way I feel

How many times must I fall, O Lord
Before I learn how to stand
When I’m tempted to sin
I so easily give in
I let go of my hold upon Your hand

All my tears are in Your bottle
All my sorrows in Your book
You recorded them one by one by one
And though I’ve often failed You
You always draw me near
And fill me with assurance
That You know
You know
