"Acoustically driven - honest and gritty at the base. Every song has a stroke of understated genius".Jamsphere Magazine.
"On 'life is Changes', his vocal delivery is breathlessly eloquent, the lyrics poignantly and passionately sung. In a word-sublime!"
NOTES
A Quick Review of 'The Journey' from Jamsphere Magazine:
'A solid, unpretentious musician with cleanly crafted performances, Dale’s music on this album is honest and gritty at the base. Dale has a number of modes his songs follow, so there are similar types of songs, but a lot of variety, both in sound and mood.
Every song has a stroke of understated genius.

You won’t find obsessive histrionics anywhere on these tracks, quite …

JUDAH - Worship From the Ages

by Dale Sechrest

Released 11/29/2017
Mosaic
Released 11/29/2017
Mosaic
Hebraic, Messianic songs, recorded 'Live' at St. Peter's Lutheran Church Sanctuary.

How did I come by recording Messianic Worship songs? What is Messianic Worship? Please see the notes below for the answers! Thank you for visiting!
NOTES
Messianic Judaism combines the Christian belief that Jesus is the Messiah—with elements of Jewish tradition.
Where this comes into play for Christians, is the scripture that states we are 'grafted into' the family of Christ.
It is also important, for some believers, to know how Yeshua (Hebrew name for Jesus), would have worshiped, including the traditional feasts and festivals that were important to Him.
Many of the songs here, are songs that He would …

Worship

by Dale Sechrest

Released 2006
Released 2006
This CD is all acoustic, one voice, one guitar. It is my hope that these songs help to being people closer to the Father in their prayer time.
NOTES
Several people had asked me to record some songs that would assist them in their prayer time.
I hope these songs are the answer to that request.
Each one was written during prayer and thus are very intimate.

The recording of this CD is very raw - the sound was not mastered and no effects were added.

Just one guitar and one voice.

LINER NOTES:

Come Into His Holy Presence: the call to worship. ...'come …

Story

His Name is Jesus, was written around the winter of early 1985. It was recorded, just for fun, with Aaron Bettner, at LifeGate Church.

Lyrics

His Name is Jesus

words and music by Dale Sechrest, copyright 1985, 2015

Verse 1: There’s a comfort that is with us, when we get restless. There’s a joy deep within us when we are low. There’s a light that shines upon our path when we are in darkness, and it all comes from One Who loves us so.

Chorus: And His name is Jesus! Jesus, the Lord of Lords. Yes, His name is Jesus and He'll reign, forever more.

Verse 2: There is hope for that man who's lying on the street. There's a chance for the girl on the edge who feels like life, has got her beat. There is love for all those, whose life has been abused. And there's peace for the mind that's been confused. CHORUS

BRIDGE: There is trust in the eyes of a child, there is faith, you can see it in their smile. Oh, if we could just believe like one of them, then the glory of God would surround us. If we could believe like one of them.  Verse 1 and Chorus

    Higher Ground
    Music and words © 1997 Dale Sechrest


    Sometimes life don't go just the way that you plan it
    sometimes life comes down far too hard
    But don't let it get you down child 'cause it goes 'round in a circle
    Things always get better you can take that much to heart

    Seems that one day you're on the mountain top
    the next you're in the valley
    sometimes you just don't know which way to go
    But you can learn from these times child just take it as it comes
    look it in the face now and don't let it make you run.

    Chorus
    Do not close your eyes to the pain that's all around you
    Do not close your eyes to the silence of the night
    Let it lead you out
    Let it be there to remind you
    That some day you'll be sat on higher ground

    Sometimes life don't go just the way that you plan it
    sometimes life comes down far too hard
    But you can learn from these times child just take it as it comes
    look it in the face now and don't let it make you run.

    Chorus
    Do not close your eyes to the pain that's all around you
    Do not close your eyes to the silence of the night
    Let it lead you out
    Let it be there to remind you
    That some day you'll be sat on higher ground


    There's a better day a'comin'
    everything's gonna turn around
    and the sun's gonna be shinin' on your back
    But it never lasts forever so just take it as you can
    And take a little bit of that high-rise when the alley comes around again

    Chorus
    Do not close your eyes to the pain that's all around you
    Do not close your eyes to the silence of the night
    Let it lead you out
    Let it be there to remind you
    That some day you'll be sat on higher ground

    Speed of Light
    Words and Music © 1977 Dale Sechrest


    There is magic in your touch - A light shining through your fingertips

    And it keeps me traveling, To you at the speed of light

    There is magic in your touch - Oceanwaves in your deep, deep eyes

    And it keeps me traveling, To you at the speed of light

    Still I wonder, yet I wonder, makes me wonder How I love you so much

    There is beauty in your smile - That is far beyond any rainbow I have seen
    And it keeps me traveling, To you at the speed of light

    Still I wonder, yet I wonder, makes me wonder How I love you so much

    Oh you are such a precious child, Gonna drive everybody wild
    No one can compare to you, Your kind are far too few

    You've got to be an angel Sent from up above
    So full of precious beauty, So full of tender love

    And it keeps me traveling, To you at the speed of light

    Still I wonder, yet I wonder, makes me wonder How I love you so much

    Oh loving you comes easy, the most easiest thing to do
    But I've never loved someone so much
    As much as I love you

    You've got to be an angel Sent from up above
    So full of precious beauty, So full of tender love

    And it keeps me traveling To you at the speed of light

    Still I wonder, yet I wonder, makes me wonder
    How I love you so much
    I love you so much
    Yes, I love you so much

NOTES
A Review on Speed Of Light:

Following his single “Best of Friends,” a heartfelt ode to fathers and sons, Dale Sechrest released his debut album, Speed of Light, an eclectic blend of rock, soul and blues. Speed of Light chronicles a life’s search for love from the garage party antics of “New Orleans” and lovesick “Baby I’m Crazy,” to the amorous battle cry of “When It Comes Down” with the despair driven “Sometimes.” …
