Hi I’m Don Bishop, we have two Albums out now. DonSongs 002 and Living Beings – Climate Control. There are several Praise Songs on each Album and you can Download them all Individually and Free on the Album Pages. DonSongs 002 and at Living Beings - Climate Control. Later I plan on putting direct links to the Praise Songs from each Album, when I have time. This page has our Bio, a History of our music and the first few Praise Songs we recorded below with Lyrics and song clips. The full versions are on the Album Pages.

Thanks and God Bless:) Don

Bio:
Hi I'm Don, I have a new Album out called Living Beings – Climate Control. Living Beings are, Don Bishop and Marty Splawn. It has taken almost a year and a half of Thursdays, but the recording is finally done. This is kind of a Studio Project - Album. There are only two of us, so it would be kind of hard for us to play live right now. But if people like our songs and I can find band members to play Marty's music, who knows. Marty plays all the instruments and composed the music for the songs. And I wrote all the lyrics, except on Is it True Lord and Healer of the Soul, which were Poems written by Kristina Hensley. Marty played and recorded the music and recorded my vocals and we mixed and remixed the songs together, except for a couple of little changes I made on my computer after I got them home. Marty and I have worked together since about 1997 on and off. We have done several different styles of music, from 60's - 70's - 80's - 90's Rock & Roll, to almost Rockabilly to almost Metal:) Including a couple of acoustic songs. Our first set of songs are on the DonSongs Album. Steve Bryan also played and arranged and recorded some of the songs on DonSongs. You can go to DonSongs.com to find out more about our music. I have really enjoyed our sessions and hope you enjoy the songs we came up with too. Marty has been playing music since he was a teenager and teaches guitar, bass and drum lessons. I am pretty much a late bloomer. I always wanted to write and sing, but I didn't think I had the talent and thought I was too shy to sing in front of people when I was younger. Now I don't care, I just want to make music!:) I almost had a real band going back in about 95'. We practiced every week for about 6 months, but we never played out. Everyone got married and busy, so now there's just no time for them.. got got, got no time:O. I on the other hand have allot of time, and would still love to start a "real band". Right now though, I'm just really glad to have been able to record these songs and realize some of my dream:) Hope You like our Songs. I also have a vision to start a ministry for kids and teens. It will be called Psalms68 Ministries. I plan for Psalms 68 Ministries to be, an outreach to local youth with Christian Music Concerts. I worked with Christian Concerts for about 15 years. And I loved it!:) As it grows I want to have an emergency shelter. With group homes for abused or unwanted kids. A sanctuary, a place where hurting kids could come and live and heal and even have fun! Copyright: © all rights reserved DonSongs 2002 and Living Beings Climate Control 2005.

Sounds Like: Everyone who came before us!:) There’s nothing new under the Sun;)



Here is a history of our work…

These are songs that the Lord Jesus has given me. Most of them from, The Psalms. I don't play any instruments, so the tunes are still in my head. I hope to get them on tape, tune and all, some day soon. (This was written in early 97'.) And Praise God! He hooked me up with a very talented guy named Marty Splawn. He plays guitar, bass, drums and keyboards. He also has a recording studio in his home. So as of 9-21-97 he has arranged and recorded four of my songs for me. And were not through yet! Praise you Lord Jesus! You are so kind to me. I hope these songs will bless you. I'm going to put audio bytes of them on this page soon. Well it's 10-13-97' and my first three sound bytes are in.! I plan to make tapes, with me singing and Marty's music on one side, and just the music on the other side. So others can sing them if they wish. Halleluia! It's 7-7-99 and we finally got to get back in the studio. We remixed Teach Me God this week. I will put some MP3 and Real audio files of it on this page as soon as I get to it. We changed the guitar sound and added a few verses. Hope you will like it. Well... it's now 1-22-02 and we still haven't finished our project:<( Marty is just so busy with other projects... We did do a new CD, with Teach Me God on it, last year. So there's an MP3 of the whole song now:>) I'm not giving up! No matter how long it takes! Unless, the Lord comes back before we get done:>) Then I guess I can just sing em to the Lord, in Heaven:>)
God Bless!

Teach Me, God.

(From Psalms Ch 25 vs1-7)

To you oh Lord I lift up my soul

In you I trust, oh my God

Show me your ways

Oh Lord, teach me your paths

Guide me in your truth

Teach me, for you are my God my Savior

And all my hope is in you

Remember Oh Lord, your great mercy and love

For they have been, from of old

(break)

Remember not the sins of my youth

And my rebellious ways

(chorus)

According to your love remember me

For you are good Oh lord

"Lament, Turn to Me"
(From Psalms 25 vs15-21)
 

(Chorus)
Turn to me, turn to me.
Turn to me and be gracious.
For I am lonely and afflicted.
Turn to me.

For the troubles of my heart have multiplied.
Oh won't free me from my anguish.
Look upon my affliction my distress.
Take away all my sins oh turn to me.
For my eyes are ever on you Lord.
And only you can release me from the snare.

(Chorus above)

May integrity and uprightness preserve me.
For I put my trust in you.

Turn to me, turn to me.
Let me not be put to shame.
Guard my life and rescue me.
For I put my trust in you.

Turn to me, turn to me.
For my eyes are ever on you Lord.
And only you can release me from the snare.

"Healer of the Soul"

(Verse 1)
Hurting people everywhere.
Is there anyone who cares?
Broken hearts and broken dreams.
Captured souls that need set free.
Who will come and make you whole?
Who will come and soothe your soul?

(Chorus 1)
Jesus meander of the soul.
Coming to make everyone whole.
Jesus healer of the soul.
Coming to make us all whole.
To make us all whole.

(Verse 2)
Let Him take away your fears.
Heal your heart, 
and wipe away your tears.
Bring a smile to your face.
Filling all that empty space
Who will come and make you whole?
Who will come and soothe your soul?

(Chorus 2)
Jesus is the one who cares.
He will wipe away your tears.
Fill you with his joy and love.
With His Peace abounding from above.

(Chorus 1 above)

"Glorify the Lord with Me"

I will extol the Lord at all times.

His praise will always be on my lips.

My soul will boast in the Lord.

(Chorus x2)

Glorify the Lord with me.

Let us exalt his name together.

I sought the Lord and he answered me.

He delivered me from all my fears.

Those who look to the Lord are radiant.

Their faces are never covered with shame.

This poor man called and the Lord he heard him.

He saved him out of his troubles.

The angel of the Lord encamps around those,

who fear him and he delivers them.

(Chorus x2)

Glorify the Lord with me.

Let us exalt his name together.

Taste and see that the Lord is good.

Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him.

Fear the Lord you his saints.

For those who fear him lack nothing.

The lions may go weak and hungry.

But those who seek the Lord, lack no good thing.

Come my children and listen to me.

And I will teach you the fear of the Lord.

Whoever of you loves life.

And desires to see many good days.

Keep your tong from evil.

And your lips from speaking lies.

Turn from evil and do good.

Seek peace and pursue it.

(Chorus x2)

Glorify the Lord with me.

Let us exalt his name together.

The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous.

And his ears are listening to their cry.

The face of the Lord is against those who do evil.

To cut off the memory of them from the earth.

The righteous cry out and the lord he hears them.

He delivers them from all their troubles.

The Lord is close to the broken hearted.

And saves those who are crushed in spirit.

A righteous man may have many troubles.

But the Lord delivers them from them all.

He protects all his bones.

Not one of them will be broken.

Evil will slay the wicked.

The foes of the righteous will be condemned.

The Lord redeems his servants.

No one who takes refuge in him,

will ever be condemned.

(Chorus x2)

Glorify the Lord with me.

Let us exalt his name together.

(End Chorus)

Glorify the Lord with me.

Let us exalt his name forever.

8-14 98'

I was alone.

My stomach was full of, stress, discouragement and anger.

Disappointment had come again.

My health still failing.

My dreams still ailing.

Once again, another set back.

Patience!

I know.

Persistence.

I know!

But...

Then the Lord came.

And gave me a tune, for His Psalm, 34.

It is amassing what the gift of praise can do.

For us.

Not for Him.

We can only imagine what praise does for the living God!

But what it can do for me.

I can see.

Now if I could only remember.

Every day.

The way.

That our God can heal and make me whole.

Through His Praise.

Don

"My song from Dad"
(From Second Samuel, 22:47-50 TLB)
 

The Lord lives
Blessed be my rock
Praise to Him
The rock of my salvation
Blessed be God
Who destroys those who oppose me
And he rescues me from all my enemies

(verse)
Yes you hold me safe, safe above their heads
You deliver me, from their violence
No wonder I give thanks to you
Oh Lord among the nations
I sing praises to your name
The rock of my salvation
(repeat all above)

The Lord lives
Blessed be my rock
Praise to Him
The rock of my salvation
Blessed be God
Who destroys those who oppose me
And he rescues me, from all my enemies

"PSALMS 148"

Praise the Lord from the heavens,
praise him in the heights above.
Praise him all His angels,
praise him all his heavenly hosts.
Praise him sun and moon,
praise him all you shining stars.
Praise him you highest heavens,
and you waters above the skies.
Let them praise the name of the Lord,
for he commanded and they were created.
He set them in place for ever and ever,
gave a decree that will never pass away.
Let them praise the name of the lord,
for his name alone is exalted.
"The people close to his heart,
praise the Lord." 
("repeat")
His splendor is above the earth,
and the heavens.
Praise the Lord from the earth,
you great sea creatures and all ocean depths,
Lightning, hail, snow and clouds,
stormy winds that do his bidding.
You mountains and all hills,
fruit trees and all cedars.
Wild animals and all cattle,
small creatures and all flying birds.
Kings of the earth and all nations,
you princes and all rulers on earth.
Young men and maidens,
old men and children.
Let them praise the name of the Lord,
for his name alone is exalted.
"The people close to his heart,
praise the Lord." 
("repeat")
He has raised up for his people a horn,
the praise of all his saints of Israel.
The people close to his heart,
praise the Lord.
 

Tune by, Don W. Bishop 11-21-95'.
