I am in the midst of helping to organize a fundraising concert, Songs of Hope for Haiti, at Picton United Church in Picton, ON on January 24, 2010 and wrote this song which I will debut at the show.  We have over 25 musicians who will be performing and donors will have the option of giving money to Save the Children Canada or Gospel Crusade Canada.  I will be recording this song next week & making it available online and will donate all proceeds from the sale of this song to help the people of Haiti.

The Sound of Haiti

©2010

The sound was deafening

The day the earth caved in

Mothers crying for their children

As all the walls gave in

Everything they had was gone

How could they carry on

Everywhere they turned around

They heard a thunderous sound

CHORUS

It was the sound, it was the sound

The sound of the earth shaking

The sound of hearts breaking

That even shook the heavens

It was the sound, it was the sound

The sound of souls aching

And the sound of hell awaking

It was the sound…..

So they lifted their voice

& they sang

Hymns that filled up the night skies

On every corner it rang

Until sunrise

And the sound was deafening

On every city street

Mothers singing to their children

With a sound so sweet

Everything they had was gone

But they knew they could go on

Everywhere they turned around

They heard a joyous sound

CHORUS

It was the sound, it was the sound

It was the sound of people praising

And a sound that was amazing

That even shook the heavens

It was the sound, it was the sound

Of hallelujah raising

A sound that was bemazing

It was the sound,,,,,

REPEAT CHORUS

And the sound was deafening…
