‘Just As I Am’ (Woodward’ Adaptation - Latest Release

‘Soulnarrative’ Adaptation of ‘Woodward’ (1836), Tune written by William Batchelder Bradbury (October 6, 1816 – January 7, 1868) to Charlotte Elliott’s poem, ‘Just As I Am’, (1835).

‘Just As Am’ Original Poem by Charlotte Elliott (1835)

Just as I am - without one plea, 
But that Thy blood was shed for me, 
And that Thou bidst me come to Thee,
- O Lamb of God, I come!



Just as I am - and waiting not
 To rid my soul of one dark blot,
 To Thee, whose blood can cleanse each spot,
 -O Lamb of God, I come!



Just as I am - though toss'd about
 With many a conflict, many a doubt, 
Fightings and fears within, without,
 -O Lamb of God, I come!



Just as I am - poor, wretched, blind;
 Sight, riches, healing of the mind,
 Yea, all I need, in Thee to find,
- O Lamb of God, I come!



Just as I am - Thou wilt receive,
 Wilt welcome, pardon, cleanse, relieve;
 Because Thy promise I believe,
 -O Lamb of God, I come!



Just as I am - Thy love unknown 
Has broken every barrier down;
 Now to be Thine, yea, Thine alone, 
-O Lamb of God, I come!



Just as I am - of that free love 
The breadth, length, depth, and height to prove, 
Here for a season, then above, 
-O Lamb of God, I come!

Melancholy Echo (Righteous Hope)

"Melancholy Echo (Righteous Hope)”. Szpilman encounters Cpt Hosenfield in 44. See ‘Lyrics’. I had to compose for this story...it is one of the most powerful and full of hope from times of cruelty and war.

Perfect Ending

This four minute work begins with rather dissonant and dark movements, then picks up in pace and brightness, with ever increasing consonance arriving through frenetic energy, until an unexpected climatic ending.....
