"Things I See" - Lynne Modranski's 1st Solo Release
"Things I See"
"She Had No Lamb" continues to be my favorite track on this project. I sing it whenever I have a chance! I know a lot of time has passed since this album released, but even today these songs are just as relevant as they were all those years ago. While all the songs from "Lookin' Up" are available online at almost every digital music store on the web, these numbers from "Things I See" have only been heard by those who own the CD, at concerts and the few times they've gotten some radio airtime. For the first time, you can now get them at my Nimbit Store on Facebook, and thanks to my youngest daughter, "She Had No Lamb" is on YouTube!
I love to meet knew folks! So read on, leave a comment and let me know you were here!!!
SHE HAD NO LAMB 1999
They walked the road to Jerusalem, so she could be purified
They came to fulfill the requirements the law specified
Now the law said that a year old lamb must be offered to make her clean
But a poor man like Joseph, well you know, he had no such thing.
So she had no lamb, & that's what the law required.
But God had made a way for His poor, 2 pigeons would pay her price.
She had no lamb to pay to be purified,/But she brought all she had, 2 birds.
A poor man's sacrifice.
And when the sacrifice had been made, the priest took the baby boy
And he prophesied strange and marvelous things that caused Mary grief and joy.
And through the years she watched Him grow in wisdom
and she watched Him grow in favor with God
And thirty-three years later, she watched Him on the cross
(and she remembered. . .) CHORUS
And how was she to know when she brought those pigeons years ago,
That one day the sword that would pierce her heart would be her greatest sacrifice.
(Because) He was her Lamb, He's what the law required.
God had made a way for her, Her Son would pay her price.
He was her Lamb, He made her pure and white.
He gave all He had for her, THE ULTIMATE SACRIFICE.
He is my Lamb, He's what the law requires.
God has made a way for me, Jesus paid my price.
He is my Lamb, He makes me pure and white.
He gave all He had for me, THE ULTIMATE SACRIFICE.
TAG He gave all He had for me, THE ULTIMATE SACRIFICE
You can now purchase this track online at my new Store
And watch for the accompaniment track to be there soon, too!
Things I See
The Title Cut
There are THINGS I SEE that make me wonder why, Lord why
There are THINGS I SEE that make me want to cry
There are THINGS I SEE that make me lean on you more and more
Lord, I need your strength to face these THINGS I SEE.
'Cause I've seen Good people die too young it seems to me
and I've seen older saints just holdin' on for year and years
and I've seen children suffering ills many grown men have never seen
Lord, I need your strength to face these THINGS I SEE
'Cause I've seen families separated and children left alone
And I've seen men and women hungry and those with out a home
And I've seen people passing by their way who just don't seem to care
Sometimes I think, Lord, it's just not fair
TAG: Oh Lord, give me strength to face these things I see

Heart of a Child
I just heard children singing about the endless grace of God
They sang about salvation and His love
And as I heard them raise their voices I began to understand
why it takes the heart of a child to come to God.
There was no violence in their voices not one of them would think
of taking the life of another child
Their hearts were pure and faithful never doubting as they sang
The truth of the Bible's every word.
It made me wonder what has happened to the child
The little one that we each used to be
What happened to the trusting caring children we once were
Are they still hiding deep inside of you and me?
For a child would never say right was wrong
when His Father told Him what was right
and they always love the sinner and hate the sin
And prejudice it has no place within a child's heart
until a older child helps to put it in.
Does His Heart Break
One day as I sat thinking about the pain in this world
Thinking 'bout the sorrow and the strife
My heart began to break at all the suffering
And I wondered how it looked through Jesus eyes
And I wondered Does His heart break when He sees a lonely child
One whose mom or daddy walked away
And wondered Does His Heart Break when He sees this lonely world
A world that so few try to change
And does it break when He sees someone crying
And they refuse to let Him help them through their pain
And does it break when a lost soul dies in their sin
and He knows that the sin has sealed their fate
And is He waiting for His Father to tell Him, "GO, Go gather up Your own"
Is He waiting for the day of His returning
when He can come and take His Father's children home.
'Cause then He'll never have to see another broken family
And He'll never have to see another hungry child
And He'll never have to feel the pain of Calvary again
'Cause then there'll be no sin and no one will ever have to die
CHORUS: repeat 2x
Look Past the Pain
Have you ever looked at a window with a dirty window pane
or covered with raindrops that seemed to blur your view
and no matter how hard to tried to see what's on the other side
when you're looking at the pane you can't see through
But, if you look through the window, if you look past the pain
if you focus on what's on the other side
you'll begin to much clearer, you'll begin to see the truth
you'll begin to see the beauty the pane was trying to hide
Look past the pane, look past the dirt look past the grime look past the hurt
to see the beauty of the day Look past the pane
Look past the pain, look past the dirt, look past the grime look past the hurt
To see what God has waiting for you Look past the pain
Sometimes life is like a dirty window filled with hurt and pain
Hate and anger sometimes blur your view
And no matter how hard you try to find peace way down inside
When you're lookin' at the pain peace can't get through
But if you pray through the anger if you Look past the pain
If you focus on the good that's in Jesus Christ
You'll begin to see much clearer, you'll begin to see the truth
You'll begin to see the beauty of what God has waiting for you
Too Far Away
Did you ask for a personal Savior and Jesus came into your heart
but lately you can't feel His presence or hear His voice.
And your wonderin' why He would leave you when He promised to stay forever,
but did He leave you or Are You Too Far Away?
Are you Too Far Away to hear the Savior calling you?
Are you Too Far Away to hear the sound of His voice?
Are you Too Far Away to let His Holy Spirit lead and guide you.
you know He's right inside of You . . . but are you TOO FAR AWAY?
Sometimes it's hard to hear God talkin' 'cause you know He speaks in a whisper
and sometimes I can hardly hear His voice
But if I listen I can hear Him callin' He's sayin' "Child, you know that I love you,
but draw near to me child You're standin' TOO FAR AWAY"
So how do you walk back?
How do you get back to that place where you once were?
How do you find the right road
when you didn't even know that you made a wrong turn?
Well if you want to hear Him then praise Him.
Praise Him with all of your heart and if you want to know His will study His word
And if you want to feel really close to Him, get on your knees everyday
and ask Him, "Lord, am I close enough or TOO FAR AWAY"
Dark Side of the Moon
Not a remake of that old rock song!
Sometimes I get so far away from my Father
I can't feel His presence or hear His voice
I start stumblin' in the dark and I feel so all alone
like I'm standin' on the Dark Side of the Moon
'Cause on the Dark Side of the Moon there's no light
No the Dark Side is a cold and lonely place
Though many can see it, it's never seen the Sun
Are you standin' on the Dark Side of the Moon
Do you feel all alone are you lost in the dark?
Do you feel empty deep inside?
Do you know my Father? Have you met His Son?
Or are you standin' on the DARK SIDE OF THE MOON?
There's a place near my Father where you can feel His love
There's a place near my Father in His Son
There's a place near my Father where His light will lead you
He will bring you from the DARK SIDE OF THE MOON

Always Has, Always will
Celebrating the Unchanging Nature of God
All around I see signs and hear how times are changing
Some excuse for all of the suffering and the pain
And I've heard that the only thing that never changes
is that in life nothing ever stays the same.
Well, all I know is I just don't understand
'cause some of the change just doesn't seem to be right.
And I've found that I need someone I can always depend upon
Someone to be there and get me through the rough times.
And I've found that
God who has always been holy, will always be holy
God who has always been righteous will always be right
God who has always shown mercy will always be merciful
God who has always shown love will always love you.
So when life's constant changes leave you confused and searching
And you feel like there's just no place you can turn
Don't forget there's a Savior who loves you and He's waiting
To be your unchanging Rock in the midst of every storm
And though heaven and earth will pass away, His promises still remain true
For the one who has always carried me will always see you through
