takes a tug Upon the string that held the line of trees Behind the house he lived in He was reared to give respect But somewhere down the line he chose To whistle as the wind blows Whistle as the wind blows through the leaves He had a dream one night That the tree had lost its middle So he built a trunk of chicken wire To try to hold it up but the wire the wire turned to lizard skin And when he climbed inside There wasn't even time to say Goodbye to Wendell Gee So whistle as the wind blows Whistle as the wind blows through the leaves If the wind were colors And if the air could speak Then whistle as the wind blows Whistle as the wind blows ****************** Lifes Rich Pageant ****************** BEGIN THE BEGIN A birdy and a hand for life's rich demand The insurgency began and you

Charles Surad introduces his own composition "On Calvary Forming the Joy of Knowing Jesus" Is a song of pure delight featuring John Barber. The pure tenor quality of the voice of Harold Montgomery gives a special interpretation to the grand Old hymn "The Old Rugged Cross". Chill bumps appear and I am frozen in the web they weave As they reveal their innermost selves With the outpouring of their hearts. On and on the songs roll on and soon you are caught up In the sermon, each rendition. As you come to feel The devotion and dedication that is poured forth, Suddenly you know they're real, they mean it. "Let Your Light Shine" could not be more aptly dubbed. Mike Hazzard shines a light from heaven on your heart Through their singing. As an artist, Rhonda Montgomery Exemplifies piano artistry. That's Rhonda, an artist. This album can be the instrument to mend a broken heart Or to straighten out your life, through the sincere testimony in The songs of the Revelaires. A must.
