Songs of Courage
With songs that speak to real life situations, sung with beautiful harmonies and memorable melodies, Dan and Sandy Adler have been singing together since they were married in 1984. This unique project is a compilation of all the songs from a project recorded in 1991 entitled "Song of Courage" along with a couple of songs from a previous project recorded in 1988 entitled "People Everywhere - Just Like You and Me". Both of these projects were originally recorded on audio cassette. This project was compiled in 1996. All the songs are written by Dan Adler. Though their subsequent recordings have had higher budgets and better production values, the many moving and deeply meaningful songs on this project still impact many listeners today. Here's an overview of what's behind the songs: 1. You Are the Almighty - a James Taylor style song affirming how God is greater than our greatest fears and failures 2. We Are All Children - a pro-life song featuring Sandy and a children's choir 3. Silently Silently - a poignant acoustic guitar and vocal melody sung to an unborn child still in the womb 4. Song of Courage - a prophetic song written weeks before friends had their baby die right after child birth. The song also carries apocalyptic meaning. 5. Grandma's Song - a powerful ballad written for Dan's grandma after his grandfather died 6. And If - a Dan Fogelberg inspired song about singleness and loneliness 7. Sing Me to Sleep - an adult lullabye sung to God amidst the fears of life 8. Winston's Mountain - a George Winston inspired song about coming down from a literal and spiritual mountain-top experience 9. All Day All Night - a peaceful, unique styled song that is a parable of a day in life as well as a lifetime from birth to death 10. I Can Trust Him - a Sting inspired jazz song about trusting God when life is scary 11. The Righteous Man - a Bossa Nova song based on several Psalms 12. Come Unto Me - a song written for a suicidal young woman we met in a psych ward who became our friend 13. Those Who Wait - a moving, country flavored ballad about God's promises for those who are persecuted and abused 14. Rainbow - a song of hope written for a friend who had a nervous breakdown 15. There is a Place - a modern hymn of comfort based on several Biblical verses 16. All I Need is You - a simple chorus, now sung around the world, affirming our dependence on God.
