"Set me free from my prison, that I may praise your name.
Then the righteous will gather about me
because of your goodness to me."
Can we use this song in other churches? I understand that the copyright might be complicated because of the quote from "Turn Your Eyes...". However, that gives it a good inter-generational appeal. Let me know-- you can just answer me on email if you want, rather than posting this: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yes. Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus was written in 1922 and is now public domain, so there is no copyright issues with those lyrics. The music and other lyrics were written by me in 2005 and were copyrighted by me at that time.I would be honored if this song were sung in other churches! Just be sure to credit it to me in the same way that you credit songs by other artists that you play. That's all.Thanks!
Nice work Ken. I love the repetition of the phrase "He'smore than". After a while it starts to dawn on the listener. The notion started me imagining how much more he must be than my little mind and limited experience can comprehend.I was wondering about the the song "Turn your eyes upon Jesus" as I wanted to use it in a new song of my own so thanks for doing the homework and thanks for your good heartRob
