INTRODUCTION TO THE "NEWHEART" CD
 
Those of you who know me as a Messianic songwriter understand that I like to “push the envelope” when it comes to a CD presentation. “NewHeart” is a combination of international sounds and contemporary rhythms, a fusion of musical flavors. These flavors are blended together: Yemenite with Hip-Hop, American Folk with Jewish contemporary ballads and so on, all pointing to Messiah. The reason is to make the overall result more compelling to a wider audience. The words are the main dish but the music is the appetizer and dessert. I hope you feel “filled up” with the presence of the Living God after listening to this banquet of many musical ideas. May you never stop wanting more.
 


2nd Chronicles 7:14 says it al. If we learn how to pray the way the Lord wants us to, He will hear from Heaven, bless us abundantly and heal our land. What more can we ask for? I read a wonderful devotional by Steve Troxel and during the same day I found a little booklet called “We the People.” This was no coincidence. It was the urging of God telling me to write this song. At the end, the Lord’s Prayer is chanted in Hebrew by Chaim Berel. Enjoy and be obedient to His Call.

IF MY PEOPLE (2 Chronicles 7:14)
(Written by Philip Stanley Klein)

My People, who are /precious to Me, they try to run and hide;
If they only knew the tears I’ve shed and how I hurt inside;
My Word’s not dead, My Son has bled his life out to fulfill
the very essence of My Holy Love upon Golgotha’s hill;

For with My Hands I molded them and with My Breath gave life,
And with My Angels over them they fought the Holy fight;
And when they sinned I gave to them a way to be made clean,
So they could look upon Me as the G-d who does redeem;

CHORUS
If My People, who are called by My Name, will humble themselves and pray;
If My People would seek My Face, and turn from their wicked ways Then I will
Hear from Heaven, I will hear from Heaven;
Their sins will be forgiven and I will heal their land;
I will
Hear from Heaven, yes I will hear from Heaven;
Their sins will be forgiven and I will heal...their...land;

My eyes will be wide open just to see what you will do;
My ears will hear the slightest wish that moves inside of you;
And even though I’ve given you the will to will it all away,
Don’t ya’ be deceived, believe in Me and I will show you how to pray;

CHORUS (2X)
 


Psalm 91 is such a favorite of mine and this wonderful Scripture is constantly tapped for songs. However, the last paragraph of the song has been ignored to date. Unfortunately, I found it to be the part of this Psalm that has the most meat. The Lord was so gracious in showing me His Promises in this Psalm. I am so thankful to be the recipient of this music. Soak with me in His Love for us as He shows us His never-ending pursuit of our hearts.

COME DWELL WITH ME  (Psalm 91)
(Written by Philip Stanley Klein)

Because you love Me,
Therefore I’ll deliver you,
I’ll lift you up because you know My Name;
Just call upon me and know that I will answer you,
I’ll ease your troubles and shield you from your pain.

Because you seek Me,
I will give you shelter,
You will not fear the terror of the night;
And I will hear your cries for My Forgiveness,
And wash you clean and keep you by My Side.

CHORUS
Come dwell with Me, Come dwell with Me;
For, I will heal your pain and sorrow in My Wings;
I’ll wipe your tears and you will see, that there is
Peace and life if you will dwell with Me.

I’ll be your fortress and your Holy Refuge,
And I’ll forgive the actions of your ways;

Here you’ll reside with me in Holy Splendor,
And I will mold your hearts with hands of Grace;

CHORUS
Come dwell with Me, Come dwell with Me;
For, I will heal your pain and sorrow in My Wings;
I’ll wipe your tears and set you free, I’ll show you
Peace and life if you will dwell with me

BRIDGE
I will command my angels over you,
And they will guard you in all ways;
For they will lift you up with Holy Hands,
And cover you...all of your days;

CHORUS

CODA
I’ll always pour My Love on you...
If you will dwell with Me.
 


Among the hundreds of verses in the Bible that reference angels, I chose Psalm 91:11, “ for He will command His angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways.” We are surrounded by the angels of the Holy One on a regular basis. The Heavenly Host keeps believers out of the way of destruction. They stand guard over us as long as we are under the Lord’s Covering. I have been both under and away from that umbrella and I know how important it is to have God’s Protection. This is a song of encouragement to let all believers know that they are not alone. We must stand on every word that proceeds from the mouth of God. If God says there are angels all around us, they are. Believe it!

ANGELS (Psalm 19:11)
(Written by Philip Stanley Klein)

Trouble...I see trouble up ahead,
‘Devil’s knockin’at your door…
just send him back where he belongs...
Danger... see it comin’ ‘round the corner...
gotta’ get the Word to make us stronger...
Gotta-fight-the battle for our souls...

But G-d Hears, He’s got it down, He’s got it handled...
And He’s here...to cover us and make us /whole...

CHORUS
(and) He’s got
Angels all around us, Angels all around us, yeah;
Come on and look how they surround us,
Angels all around us, Yeah;

Lifting us with Ho-ly Hands;
Singing to the Son of Man;
So when the world has come upon us,
Nations turn’d against us;
Only One can save us...
and He’s got angels all around us...
mighty angels all around us...
right now...

Heartaches... people headed for a heartbreak,
They don’t see the road they could take,
The way to sanctify their souls;

New hearts... what they need to have is new hearts,
Shaped into vessels to be poured out;
Made into flesh, not turned to /stone...

But G-d hears, He’s got it down, He’s got it handled...
And He’s here, to cover us and make us whole...

CHORUS

Come on and look how they surround us, Angels all around us, /Yeah;

Lifting us with Ho-ly Hands;
Singing to the the Son of Man;
So when the world has come upon us,
Nations turn’d against us;
Only One can save us...
And He’s got angels all a/round us...holy angels all around us...

RAP (3:33 Start)
We gotta guard our hearts and minds, so when the
Enemy comes, we kick his behind; Put him out on the
Street…in defeat, let him know he’s been beat; ‘Cuz we got
Protection, from the Most High...the Top Guy and
We don’t need to fear...’cause He’s got...

CHORUS

CODA
(1,2,3,4) Only G-d can save us, / (1,2,3)
He’ll send His /angels all around us...
(1,2,3,4) When we’re deep in danger...
(1,2,3) He’ll have His /angels all around us...
if we believe…if you believe...
 


This was a personal song, never meant to be performed publicly, but living inside of me as a reminder of my iniquities. I realized that, to get these iniquities out of me, I had to release this song from my soul and let it fly. The form of the song is unorthodox, sporting a verse melody and a bridge melody but no chorus, giving it sort of a feeling of a round. But, I “write” it as I “get” it. I originally wrote it with the thought of “My Independence Day” as the title, but the movie came out and I felt that I needed more repentance than independence. I hope the song’s premise does not seem alien to you.

MY REPENTANCE DAY
(Written by Philip Stanley Klein)

Lord, I turn today from all the sin that’s in my way;
Remove all my iniquities and take unrighteousness from me;
Oh, Lord, I praise Your Worth and thank you for Messiah’s
Birth that pulled me from a living Hell and
Raised me up to know You well;

BRIDGE #1
And oh, how I used to hide my face,
Refuse Your Mercy and deny Your Grace;
My heart was hardened by a painful world,
But only through a prayer, a soft’ning happened there;

So Lord, deliver me and pour Your Spirit over me,
Oh, let Your Word refresh my soul, I place my life in Your control;
For I want nothing more than having you near when I call,
Your gentle voice surrounding me with words of comfort, telling me (that);

BRIDGE #2
You were never far away from me,
Your Love was greater than my mind could see;
You knew me long before the world began,
And now I’m not afraid, my heart is in Your hands;

So, Lord, please raise the veil, release my spirit from this jail, (2nd X in G)
That held me down and blinded me with darkness so I couldn’t see;
Your Light, oh, burn in me a never-ending love for Thee, (2nd X in Bb)
Let faith arise and change me, Lord and give me hunger for Your Word; (2nd X to ***)

Today, I pledge my life, to follow You in joy or strife,
No matter what the world may say, I’m your...never to be turned away...
For this...this is My Repentance Day...
 

 
This song is a personal talk with G-d. It’s old world Jewish melody lends itself to the very heart of G-d’s purpose for our lives. The words show G-d’s Love for His Children and His claim over the Land of Israel. Jerusalem is not our city…it’s God’s City. The only claim we have to anything is the salvation that G-d has given us in exchange for our belief in His Son, Yeshua, as King of kings and Lord of lords.

YISRAEL, MY GLORY
(Written by Philip Stanley Klein)

You Hurt, I cry; You laugh and I laugh with you;
Humble yourself and I will right your wrongs;
I seek, you hide; you hold your pain within you;
Release your pride and I will make you strong;

BRIDGE
For you I’ve chosen, I’ll come back where I’ve risen;
Fear not, I’m with you; Your faith is all you need;

CHORUS
Oh, Israel, you are My Glory
I’ve touched you, I love you; but
Israel, you shall not see Me
Until I hear you say;
“Baruch HaBa Ba Shem AdoShem,
Blessed is He who comes in Your Name,”
Oh, Israel, you are My Glory, a
Glory unto God.
You are My Bride, Behold your Bridegroom cometh,
The Will of God will be fulfilled one day;
For you I’ve won, I am your blood atonement,
The Lamb of God will see His Nation saved;

BRIDGE
For you I’ve chosen, I’ll come back where I’ve risen;
Fear not, I’m with you, your faith is all you need;

CHORUS
Oh, Israel, you are My Glory, etc.

HEBREW CHORUS
Oh /Yisrael,

Ata hu Te-/hi-la-ti; becha A/ni na-ga-tee,
Ani o/hev ochta;
Ach, /Yisrael, Lo /tir-u-ni,/
Ad she-esh-/ma,“ Baruch Ha/ba Be/Shem Ado’/shem,
(Blessed is He who comes in My Name),
Oh, /Yisrael, Ata hu-te-/hee-la-ti, Te/hila le Ado/nai.
 


This song, driven by a contemporary international dance beat, calls for us to rely on G-d for all things, big and small. It tells us not to give up; to let go of the things we can’t control and lay our burdens on the Holy One of Israel. Elad Fitoussi, a young Israeli friend at Congregation Beth Hallel in Atlanta, Georgia assisted me in translating the chorus into Hebrew, allowing the people of Israel to hear the cry of the Holy One in their own language. Everything we do winds up flawed in some way, but God’s Grace covers us and His Mercy endures forever.
 
JUST GIVE IT TO G-D
(Written by Philip Stanley Klein)
 
Life can get you weary, when trouble comes around,
It fills you up with so much stuff your heart can hit the ground;
You’re filled with pain and sorrow and you can’t turn away,
Forget about tomorrow, let’s deal with it today;

CHORUS
Just give it to God...Just give it to God, Le-Olam Vaed,
Just give it to God...Just give it to God, Le-Olam Vaed;
When living is hard, so hard, and the Devil is playin’ with your head,
Just give it to God...Just give it to God, Le-Olam Vaed.

Our friends and family leave us, we wind up on dry ground;
And many expectations are lost, never-to-be-found;
We find a hole and bury all the dreams we never shared,
But someone else can carry all the burdens that we bear;

CHORUS

BRIDGE
Baruch Atah Adoshem Adonai;
Blessed are You, Oh Lord, the One who hears our cry;
Heal all our sicknesses and remove us from our pain,
Lift up your prayers to Him and He’ll restore again;
 
HEBREW CHORUS
Rak ten le-elohim..Rak ten le-elohim, Le-Olam Vaed
(Just give it to God.......Just give it to God, Le-Olam Vaed)
Rak ten le-elohim..Rak ten le-elohim, Le-Olam Vaed
(Just give it to God.......Just give it to God, Le-Olam Vaed)
K'she lichyot ze kashe, kol kach kashe
Ve ha'satan mesachek em roshcha
Rak ten le-elohim...Rak ten le-elohim, Le-Olam Vaed
(When living is hard, so hard, and the Devil is playin’ with your head)
(Just give it to God...Just give it to God, Le-Olam Vaed)
 


The song "True Believer” was written in 1990 and was played for the very first time at a Men’s Retreat in the North Georgia hills. I never played it publicly since. I don’t know why. I guess I thought that it was such a private thing...my testimony...that I would keep it to myself. How silly and selfish! It’s by the power of our testimony that people are changed and made new. Now, in putting together the content of the new album project, I found this to be the unbuttoning of a layer of my life, a start to peeling off a layer of myself so others can see through me and relate and examine and release those things of themselves that the Lord feels unnecessary for all of us to hold dear. Now that I am more naked, I feel better.

TRUE BELIEVER

(Written by Philip Stanley Klein)

I’m a true believer, yet I can’t believe it’s true;
Why would you pick me up and dust me off and make me part of you;
For I’m not worthy; I’ve been away from you so long,
I was afraid to let You in my heart for all that I’ve done wrong;

BRIDGE
But You cared for me , You saw what I was going through;
You cared for me, and so You made me all brand-new;

CHORUS
Lord, I can’t believe what You’re doing in my life,
There’s a Holy Spirit moving in my life;
You’ve made me a miracle that’s taken me from
Darkness into light; No, I can’t believe what You’re
Doing in my life.

I never knew You when I called You Adonai, I’d sit
Alone in temple Friday nights and never heard Your cry;
I never knew You were a Father just like me, but only
You could give your Only Son to set this captive free;

BRIDGE

CHORUS
 


In Daniel 3, the story is told of Daniel’s three friends and associates, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego. They refused to bow to the king’s golden idol and were thrown into the fiery furnace. But Yeshua entered with them and they were totally protected. It’s the same with us as we occasionally get into fiery circumstances. As believers, He is our covering and will protect us from harm. As we repent of our sins, He will remove us from the fire and restore us. It’s such a cool story of protection, repentance and forgiveness and I couldn’t help writing it within the vein of the Southern Rock, “Bible Belt,” genre.
 
FREE IN THE FIRE (Daniel 3)
(Written by Philip Stanley Klein)

Nebuchadnezzar sentenced three of our brothers to be
burned to a cinder but he forgot the power of the
Lord, our creator; the One who made us His Own;

So, in the furnace, went Messiah, Our Savior, and He
Gave them His Covering and...Whoa...from their heads down to their toes...
They were as cool as fallen snow;

See, If you trust in the Lord, obey your creator,
When the heat starts to rise, He’ll move you out of danger, and you’ll be

CHORUS
Free in the fire, washed in the blood;
Touched by Messiah and caught up in His Love;
Burning within you is to trust Him more deeply than life;
Nothing’s more dangerous than going your own way,
Who can you lean on, God is your only way;
Knowing He’ll strengthen you...
and set you Free in the fire
now I’m Free in the Fire...

I was saved by a Stranger, miracle-maker;
The Lord, He followed me and kept me from harm,
When I ran out of road, He filled me up with His Heart;
Now, I’ll admit, I’m not perfect (no way) and I still walk the wrong way;
And I’ve been burned so many times,’...
I can’t sit down...
Because it smarts...
Lord, it smarts...

But, if you trust in the Lord, obey your creator,
When the heat starts to rise, He’ll move you out of danger; ‘n you’ll be

Free in the Fire, washed in the blood;
Touched by Messiah and caught up in His Love;
Burning within you is to trust Him more deeply than life;
Nothing’s more dangerous than living your own way,
Who can you lean on, God is the only way;
Knowing He’ll strengthen you…..and set you
Free in the fire...Free in the fire...

BRIDGE
As long as you live, you’re gonna feel the heat; the
Devil’s waiting to setup your defeat;
With every dirty trick He’s ever learned;
But, God is with you/ and you can’t be burned...
No, no, no...’cause you’ll be

CHORUS
 


The heart is susceptible to many forms of injury and pain; sometimes physical and, sometimes, the pain is emotional. The heart can ache for many reasons. Many of us, if we can really be honest with ourselves, have suffered heartaches throughout your lives. Runaway feelings, family betrayals, emotional abandonments from our youth, whatever caused your hearts to ache and break. I pray that the cracks may be sealed and healed in your lives. May this song from Messiah’s Heart minister to all of you as it did to me.

HEAL MY HEART
(Written by Philip Stanley Klein)

CHORUS
Heal My Heart and live within me, Wash me clean and never leave me;
You alone can soothe my soul, Heal my heart and make me whole...
Teach me Your Forgiveness, Lord; Pour in me Your Holy Word;
Cover me with Grace and Mercy, Undeserved but flowing freely;
Touch me, Lord, and heal...my...heart.

Look through me, undo me, remove the emptiness inside;
Fill me up with Your Joy for I’ve got nothing else to hide;
Restore me, remold me; I need Your healing touch today;
I’m open, I’m broken, I need to find a sunny day...today;

CHORUS
 


A Yemenite-style, Contemporary Rock praise to the Holy One of Israel. We used a combination of old and new instruments and a dance-worthy push beat to drive the point of praise home in the form of Messianic Fusion, encouraging the art of dance in praise and worship and appealing to people of all ages.

HOLY GOD
(Written by Philip Stanley Klein)

You are Holy, God Almighty, You are Lord of my life;
Take me, mold me, heal me, hold me;
Fill me up with Your Light;

BRIDGE
(And) Take me to your throne,
For I’m your very own;

CHORUS
And You are Holy, God,
Heal me, Holy God,
Touch me, Holy God,
God of my Salvation, Master of Creation, Holy God.

Pour Salvation, Heal our Nation,
By Your Spirit, Oh, Lord;
Mighty Tower, use Your Power,
Cover us with Your Word;

BRIDGE
(And) Take us to your throne,
For we’re your very own;

CHORUS
And You are Holy, God,
Heal us, Holy God,
Touch us, Holy God,
God of our Salvation, Master of Creation, Holy God.

BRIDGE
Bring revelation upon us ,
And cover us with Your Throne;
Your Host of Angels surrounding us
To pick us up when we fall,
You pick us up when we fall,
You lift us up when we fall;

CHORUS (2X)
