I make the noise, I make it with my voice

I make it with my hands and my feet

He that dwelleth in the secret place – words and music by: Lance Appleton

One of the first songs I learned to play on the guitar.  I love this version because my (then one year old) son Ian can be heard walking in on our recording session.  Such great memories here!

He that dwelleth in the secret place

words and music by: Lance Appleton


confusion won’t find me here 

as long as I can stay here

confusion won’t find me here 

as long as I can stay here

Leaving it all in His hands – words and music by: Lance Appleton

This is an early recording from my dads  Gateway College days 1969 or 1970.   I can picture him in one of those great marble stairways making this recording (one of my favorite spots to sit and play when I was there).  This is a great snapshot of his early music and the type of songwriting that influenced him.
Special thanks to Jeff Miller for taking a box of my dads old cassette tapes and and preserving these gems!

Leaving it all in His hands

words and music by: Lance Appleton


I met a stranger in the park today

he was carving crosses on the trees

I must have watched him for an hour or so

working up the nerve to speak

Is there anybody here? – Lance Appleton and the Lord’s Band (Live)

Dedicated to a dear friend Lance Appleton, a mighty warrior for Jesus who fought the good fight. He made it his life to worship Jesus, and this is a song he played with friends in the Lord, not intending this to be published, but the song is a great one deserving to be shared, glory be to the God on high!

Music For My Lord – words and music by: Lance Appleton

This is one of my all time top 10 favorite songs written by my Dad.  Hearing it now gives me a sense of wonder to think that he is now truly making “Music For My Lord”

Music For my Lord

words and music by: Lance Appleton


                    G                                              C

When the moon and stars fall from the sky

                  G                                C

when the sun turns dark and cold

             Em          D                  C2

Ill will just be opening up my eyes 

        G       F       C

In a city of pure gold

                   G                                           C

When the final end of time and space

G                    C

eternally unfolds

NAYC Cortt Chavis – One God Apostolic

The story is that Dad originally wrote One God Apostolic on the way to a 1972 youth convention, because he had been given a 15 min time slot to speak and he wasn’t sure what he was going to say to fill all that time. Here are the same lyrics being sung 37 years later at the 2009 National Youth Convention … Guess it still works to fill in those small gaps 🙂
