MISSION STATEMENT:

"My hope is that I can reach people with the message of Jesus through my music. I wrote these songs more from a perspective of getting listeners to examine what they believe and why."

"Today, I am focused on writing contemporary Christian music and it has given me the most satisfaction of anything I have ever done. Just knowing that God has empowered me to do this work is an awesome responsibility. I do not take it lightly."

"This society in which we live is a disaster area. There are so many lost souls and they don't even realize they are lost. That is the part that really drives me. I often wonder.. Maybe all these years of recording and playing and more playing will eventually bring 1 person to Christ. I may not even know it until I get to heaven and meet them. It's an exciting thought. I really want people to know and understand who Jesus is, and what he means."

REVIEW OF PRAISE IN HYMN

Bob Hughes is an up and coming songwriter and lyricist, a musician called by the Lord to be in a music ministry, under the steam of the Holy Spirit.

When empowered by the Holy Spirit, it is truly amazing what a single, talented individual, using his musical gifts the Lord blessed him with, and his ability to write lyrical messages can accomplish in a music ministry for Jesus Christ, on a shoestring budget, without a record label or even with a "professional" mixer and producer.

Bob Hughes has a music ministry for the Lord, which he faithfully continues through his songs and albums, all self-made by depending on the Lord for inspiration, for his creative flow and the perseverance and stamina needed to finish the tasks involved in the song writing, the recording of all the instrument parts, played by himself, and mixing of all the tracks, into compositions which don't sound over produced, and are interesting to listen to and absorb.

So far, this one man band has created 7 albums in this manner: Seasons Of Life * Praise In Hymn * Savior Soul * Know Notion * World * Perception * Impressions. Each has its own general theme, which is so nicely expressed within the collection of songs presented in each album.

This review is exploring Praise In Hymn CD, which offers a lot to the listener, sure to encourage the believer and point the seeker to our Lord Jesus Christ. Anthems, ballads and prayer hymns found in this collection of songs can be described as being acoustic based, boosted with a large but not overwhelming blend of keyboard, drum / percussion and sythns tracks, making the finished accompaniment very full in sound, in the style of the contemporary anthem, praise and worship songs usually heard on established Christian music radio, but on a more simple yet balanced level.

While the combined musical accompaniment sound does work very nicely in supporting the variety of inspiring contagious melodies, and Bob's heartfelt, sincere vocals, the strength and most outstanding and admired aspects of these personal ballads, prayer hymns and anthems can be found in each of the songs' memorable melodies and meaningful lyrics, which showcase Bob's strongest musical gifts and talents: Creating moving, interesting melodies, and pairing these tunes with the perfect, expressive lyrics to express the desired message of each overall theme expressed in his albums, especially Praise In Hymn.

Others have also discovered Bob Hughes' gifts as a songwriter and lyricist. He was accepted recently into the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers, ASCAP, and just recently has begun to work with for Paramount /Nashville Records, as a songwriter.

Bob Hughes' heartfelt testimony and statement of faith can be found flowing through the themes of these 7 songs found on Praise In Hymn; encouraging the listener to open one's heart to Jesus, spend time with Him, trust and depend on the Lord and think about the legacy we will leave here when we leave this life.

PRAISE IN HYMN begins by exploring the blessings of being a believer:

Able to be with and talk to the Lord in this world for inner peace, strength and for inspiration in doing what He asks of us, if we take the time to do so.

STEPPED OUTSIDE - Composition: Acoustic guitar begins in the introduction as melody intro and establishing the easy beat of this song, with strings offering a delicate counter melody which also supports the tune, throughout the song. Two guitar tracks(acoustic & electric?) can be heard throughout the song if one listens intently, offering fine support for the catchy melody and interesting support melodies as well.

Lyrical Message: A ballad about a special place in his mind where Bob goes to restore his soul and let in peace by stepping outside of this world's concerns and busy schedules;and winding up outside of it all, into the realm of God's world, enjoying the simple yet comforting aspects of nature, and feels the presence of the Lord. This place stimulates his musical gifts and the lyrical messages.

Lyrical Example: Stepped outside the other day / Sat beneath my favorite tree / Strumming on acoustic guitar / Creating a song for you / Stepped outside with my best old friend / Release soul and mind / Sound of music, nature's kind / whoa, It feels good to be alive / / Sky is blue and the air is sweet / Wind is dancing on the leaves / Sun is shining upon my face / Relax my very soul /

Blessings and the responsibilities which come with them.....

Bob Hughes commented, My favorite songs are CHILDHOOD DAYS, LEGACY, and LET GO LET GOD. I wrote these songs more from a perspective of getting listeners to examine what they believe and why. CHILDHOOD DAYS and LEGACY are "Companion Songs." The songs were not really written from an experience point of view, although with childhood days, I visually saw the lyrics."

* CHILDHOOD DAYS - Composition: This irresistible ballad begins with a driving ensemble of guitars, with light, underlying string sythns and piano work, both supporting the chordal structure of the melody. Full sound of guitar ensemble offers rhythm, melody and counter melody support. It all cooks along splendidly, becoming a most effective musical vehicle for one of this reviewer's absolute favorite songs on the CD.

Lyrical Message: About A father's time spent with a young son, covering two generations, ending with the comforting fact for believers: "He will keep us all together / As we live forever and ever / He will give us our childhood days / We'll will have them again / We will love our childhood days / As we spend them with Him // This will be your legacy / This will be their memory / Did you pass on the word / About Jesus Christ our Lord / Did you pass on the word / About Jesus Christ our Lord /"

Give testimony who Jesus Christ is, what he did for us and how much he loves us

* HE LOVES US SO - Composition - This moving, worship anthem is written in a minor key, during the verses and most of Chorus 1, though the tune segues completely into a major key for the second part of Chorus 2, reflecting the good news of the love of Jesus. Composition offers a memorable, moving melody with vocals from the heart and Spirit, which will have the listener singing along , especially during Chorus 2! Nice contrast between moving, broken chord acoustic guitars and lovely string sythns, which provide underlying support. One hears some very nice acoustic guitar parts, and a pumping bass as well (with no problems with syncopation), and steady, peppy drums keeping the tempo steady! An inspiring worship anthem sure to find a home in any contemporary service!

Another one of this reviewer's absolute favorites!

Lyrical message: One of Bob's best efforts on this CD. A Testimony about Jesus Christ, who became our sin offering on a cross out of his love for us. The extent of the Hope and love of Jesus Christ that is available to us is fully expressed in meaningful, well put together lyrics, offering Christ as the source which will see us through any troubles or disasters found in this world. Encourages us to open our hearts to His Spirit, as our Lord and Savior

Developing a relationship with Him, through trust and faith, depending on the Holy Spirit

LET GO LET GOD - Composition: Bright acoustic based anthem, with a healthy portion of sythns. providing chord support for melody. Easy 2 beat tempo, keeps this song breezing along, propelled by acoustic forces (rhythm, melody and counter melody) and a delightfully bluesy / jazzy counter melody played softly by piano during the verses. Would love to hear this song performed live!

Lyrical message: Trusting the Lord enough to let God take us by the hand, having faith that he will lead us on through the hills and valleys and the bumps in our road through life.

Let Go / And Let God / Take you by the hand / Let Go / And Let God / Give you the promised land / Let Go / and Let God / Surround you with His love / Let Go and Let God / Take you by the hand //

So many things can grip our lives / Freeze us in our tracks / Minds can race too quickly now / And bring out all our fears / Thoughts driven by panic / Down a road that won't come back / So We must see / We turn around and know that God is near /

TIME FOREVER - Composition: Stirring, energetic worship anthem composed in a minor key, which would find a home in any contemporary worship service. Nice blend of piano, guitar and string sythns, each with a different voice to add to the musical blend, which so richly offers strong support for the memorable inspiring melody and for the heartfelt dynamic vocals, resulting in a stirring presentation. The listener is lifted up into a state of worship, singing along in the Spirit!

A strong favorite of this reviewer.

Lyrical message: A testimony to God's love and our loving Savior, Jesus. We must prepare our hearts for Jesus, to be open to the Spirit. Perfect worship song for an audience participation event. Refrain is catchy yet simple enough to remember.

You can believe that God / Is the God of all time / God is love And love is on His mind / We can trust in God, and open our hearts / We will be so close / That we shall not part /We only get one time to go through this life / Prepare your heart and soul for Jesus Christ / Before we knew of time / Our Father knew His plan / His son would be redeeming all of man //

Refrain: Time forever is eternity together / Time forever with our Lord /

THREE IN ONE - Composition: A lively prayer hymn, with a great melody, propelled by a full sounding, driving acoustic guitar ensemble, with some sythns support. Lovely harmony as well as strong vocals, throughout the song.

A strong favorite of this reviewer.

Lyrical message: Asking the Lord for His will, His guidance, His strength and for courage in stepping out in faith, followed up by a statement of faith in the chorus, celebrating the existence of the Holy Trinity - Father, Son and Holy Sprit

We are children in Your eyes / And Your love is no surprise / Help me to step in faith / For you shall guide my path / Help me to walk in faith / For you shall clear the way //

Three in one / One in three / Holy Trinity! / Three in one / And one in three / In this I believe

Bob Hughes is a gifted, Spirit-filled songwriter and composer, who makes the most of his talents to create songs which truly encourage and uplift both the believer and seeker, by expressing who Jesus is and what it means to belong to Him, have a relationship with Him, offering the hope and love we can depend on in our struggles here on earth, and in using our gifts to promote the Gospel.

His uncanny knack and ability through the Holy Spirit to bring a song alive with meaningful, clever lyrics and a full, supportive accompaniment is fully evident in every song found in PRAISE IN HYMN, and I highly recommend this CD for your Christian music collection. He is a tremendous blessing to his church family, his internet community, and some day to the Christian music community and the world; All in God's time.

You can see from the picture above, Bob Hughes has a nice collection of guitars; both acoustic and electric!

About Bob Hughes and His Music Interview

Bob Hughes graciously agreed to answer some interview questions, to share with Christianmusic.com

Bob shares with ChristianMusic.com about his early life, his youth and his family....

"I was born 8/23/64 in Baltimore MD, and I don't really have any outstanding memories of living there. I moved to the area I am living in now (Binghamton, NY) when I was about 4 and have been in this general area my whole life."

"I did spend 4 years in the Air Force which took me to England, where I met my wife Nikki. She was also in the Air Force and from Wisconsin. We just celebrated our 16th anniversary on 8/4. Wow.. Time really flies.. My wife Nikki has been there through the whole process and has always been supportive, patient, and understanding of my desires and dreams. "

"We have an 8 year old son, Robert. He is such a wonderful and sensitive child. He is such a joy in our life and we give thanks to God everyday."

More About Bob Hughes' Music and His Spiritual Development

Bob Hughes is one of those rare individuals who was blessed with the natural musical ability to learn musical instruments easily and be able to compose and play original musical thoughts.

Bob explains to ChristianMusic.com,

"I am self taught in all instruments that I play, and that includes bass guitar, guitar, keyboards, some drums, and vocals. I picked up the guitar in 1987 when I was in the Air Force. Along with that. I invested in some recording equipment and the rest is as they say, 'history.' However, It was God who wrote songs through me."

Bob Shares with ChristianMusic.com about the development of his musical gifts and God's plan for these gifts...

"I have been in and around music for many many years. I started out playing saxophone when I was 12 and after a few years I gave that up to play sports and be a "normal" 14 year old! LOL Right about when I was 16, I started to play bass guitar with some friends and we had the typical garage band noise going on. It was fun, and although I didn't know it at the time, God was already preparing me for his plans to use me through music."

ChristianMusic.com had to know, so we asked Bob, "How were you led by the Lord to use your musical gifts to be in a musical ministry for Jesus?

Bob reflects, and gives this testimony, "I don't really have a life experience that was dramatic enough to move me in this direction of writing. I have been hearing a call from God for several years to compose for him, but I had a hard time convincing myself I could offer anything that was good enough for Him."

"On my CD, WORLD, I penned songs that examined our world, its problems, and its materialism. That was in 1998, and even back then I had stirrings in my soul that were prodding me to write Christian music. I wanted to, but at that point I thought it had to come from me alone."

Bob continues in his story, "Fast forward to 2004 and I have just finished up recording, SAVIOR SOUL, a Christian rock based collection of songs. Things are starting to become clearer for me. I started this project with a prayer that God would work through me on these songs. Still there were obstacles and it was not an easy project for me. At that point I hadn't totally let go of the "its for me" attitude. I was in the ballpark so to speak, but not quite in the game yet. I was happy with outcome although technically speaking, the production was not quite there yet."

"The PRAISE IN HYMN and SEASONS OF LIFE CDs marked a very significant change in me. I have always been a believer in Jesus as far back as I can remember. I never had that one outstanding moment where I realized I was lost and needed his salvation. I did however experience a renewal of Jesus in my heart when I started to write PRAISE IN HYMN. The Holy Spirit convicted me and made me realize that my gift for music was not a gift for just me to enjoy and pursue. It is a gift from God and the means I was given to praise him and help build his kingdom. It is not about me."

Bob reflects on this change in his perception, "Once I realized this truth, I experienced a peace and fulfillment in writing music that I never even knew existed. Until that point, the creation of music was more a mechanical process. I look back and listen to previous songs I have written and I can see that God was already laying the foundation for his work."

Bob continues, "After many many hours of praying, I started to realize that no matter what I was able to do, it was all according to his will. Once I realized that it was just a matter of letting the Spirit flow and take control of my lyrics and music. I know that sounds like it was easy, and quite honestly, I am surprised how easy it was once I gave the control over to God."

Bob then experienced deeper insights as he worked on his next CD, Seasons Of Life, which he also shared with ChristianMusic.com.

Bob explains, "SEASONS OF LIFE is actually a continuation of PRAISE IN HYMN. I thought I had a pretty good handle on what to expect as I embarked on God's will through my music, but nothing could prepare me for the experience of this group of songs."

Bob continues, "Once again as I started this journey of songs, I asked God to work his will and message into the songs. There were times when I would cry, I would laugh and every emotion in between. Never before have I realized just how close God works in people who accept him and invite him in. It was an amazing moment in my life, and I will never be the same person I was before. "

His Thoughts and Testimony for other composers and musicians hearing a call from the Lord:

"If there is anything that I can say to songwriters who are hearing a calling from God, it is to embrace the calling and let him work through you. God is giving you a special gift of music and wants you to use it."

"My life will never be 'its about me' again. My music will never be 'its about me' again. Sure, I am human, I will falter and stumble on the road with Christ, but I know he will catch me and guide me."

"God has answered my prayers. I asked him to reveal his will for my life and through his Holy Spirit he has told me, 'Bob, I have created you specifically to be one of my musicians. I have given you the gift of music for the joy & praise its creation brings me. Use this gift in full knowledge that you will be touching lives and bringing Jesus to those who need him.'"

Bob expresses his confidence in letting the Lord lead him in this music ministry, and shares with ChristianMusic.com,

"I know that God has a plan for me and I want to see it develop. Sometimes I am a little too impatient with it. I find myself saying "OK God.. You've got my attention, you've written these songs through me.. "Now what?" I sit back, relax and realize; All things in Gods time."

* * * * + STEPPED OUTSIDE - Bob's Comments: "I wrote the song and projected myself under that special tree. In my mind I felt the breeze and smelled the sweet air of summer and beheld God's creation. I heard the birds singing the melody. My idea on the song is to inspire a person to seek this special place on their own as they pursue the will of God. It does parallel my walk with God as I pursue his will through music, but I never did have a specific "tree" in mind. The "favorite tree" is the tree of life God has promised us. In the verse where I "stepped outside with my best old friend" I am projecting my walk with Jesus and we are talking about everything, just as best friends do. In this conversation I place everything in my heart, soul and mind into his hands and life with him is good. In this song, I am projecting the creation of a song as the gift I have received that God wants me to use for his kingdom. For the listener, their own special gift takes the place of the "acoustic guitar."

Lyrics

Stepped outside the other day / Sat beneath the shady tree / Strumming on acoustic guitar / Birds are singing melody / /

Chorus: Sky is blue and the air is sweet / Wind is dancing on the leaves / Sun is shining upon my face / Relax my very soul //

Stepped outside with my best old friend / Release soul and mind / Sound of music, nature's kind / whoa, It feels good to be alive /

Chorus: Sky is blue and the air is sweet / Wind is dancing on the leaves / Sun is shining upon my face / Relax my very soul /

Stepped outside the other day / Sat beneath my favorite tree / Strumming on acoustic guitar / Creating a song for you //

Chorus: Sky is blue and the air is sweet / Wind is dancing on the leaves / Sun is shining upon my face / Relax my very soul /

Stepped outside the other day / Stepped outside to free my mind / Stepped outside into the light / Stepped outside to realize ///

* * * * + + CHILDHOOD DAYS - Bob's Comments: "I wrote this song in about 15 minutes one day when I was home alone with my son. We were in the living room and he was playing and building with his Legos. As I was watching him, the words just started to flow. It outlines his childhood days, the memories I have of my childhood days, and the fact that we will all get our childhood days back again when we are home in heaven with Jesus."

Scriptural References: (Proverbs 22:6, Luke 10:27, John 14:8, Ephesians 4:2b-3 & 6:10-17, Is. 28:16B)

Lyrics:

Do you / Remember when / You were / Just a kid? / Oh yes, I remember when / I was / Just a kid / How far / That I can ride / Down to / The corner store / Bought some candy / for a nickel / Whoa, those days gone for sure /

I remember my childhood days / I see them in you / I love my childhood days / My son, I love you //

I remember / Me and Dad / Playing ball in the big backyard / Laughin' / running a race / Whoa, he chased me all over the place / Now that / Its you and me, laughin' / and grunion' free / One thing I know its true / I have seen God's face in you //

I remember my childhood days / I see them in you / I love my childhood days / My son, I love you //

Now that / You are getting older / There is one thing / you need to know / Love Jesus in all your ways / Talk to Him / On every day / Trust God your Father Almighty / For you know his Words are true / He will keep us all together / As we live forever and ever / He will give us our childhood days / We'll will have them again / We will love our childhood days / As we spend them with Him //

I remember my childhood days / I see them in you / I love my childhood days / My son, I love you // Repeat

* * * * + + HE LOVES US SO - Bob's Comments: This song realizes the fact that God loves us without exception and gave his son to die for our salvation. It cant be any more direct than that.

Scriptural References: (John 3:16, 1 John 4:19, Hebrews 6:19-20, Romans 8:31& 38, Ephes. 3:16, Joshua 1:9)

Lyrics:

Last night / I prayed to God / For the world to settle down / See the beauty that You've made / For us to share in every day / Many people / do not know / That your son, He died for us / Took our sin / Paid our debts / Because You weren't done loving us yet //

Chorus 1:My brother don't you fear / My sister, don't you cry / Lord God Almighty / Is by your side / For I know He loves us so //

When you feel / Down and hopeless / That is when He holds you close / Sees the tears / That you shed / He hears the prayers that you said / In His grace, we get the power / To overcome our darkest hour / Climb the mountains / That we face / Run the race in His grace //

Chorus 2: My brother, don't you fear / My sister, don't you cry / Lord God Almighty / Is by your side / For I know He loves us so / Oh You know He loves us so / That he gave his only Son / For You know He loves us so / That he gave his only Son /

Let the spirits live within you / heart, soul, body and mind / Open up / to the Father / And His Son / the King Most High / Jesus Christ will restore/ your eternal life / His blood Devine / Hung on the wooden cross / so you and I MAY never die //

Chorus 2: My brother don't you fear / My sister, don't you cry / Lord God Almighty / Is by your side / For I know He loves us so / For You know He loves us so / That he gave his only Son / For we know He loves us so / That he gave his only Son //

* * * * + + TIME FOREVER - Bob's Comments: I wrote this song to emphasize that we have to and must prepare our hearts for Jesus. We are going to spend somewhere in eternity. It is my hope that this song and the others touch people and make them sit back and examine their beliefs and what they expect when move on from this world.

Scriptural References: (Is 1:18, Romans 6:33, John 14:2, Romans 12:2, Ephesians 4:22, 1 Thess. 5:1-2, & 5:8)

Lyrics: S

You can believe that God / Is the God of all time / God is love And love is on His mind / We can trust in God, and open our hearts / We will be so close / That we shall not part /

Refrain: Time forever is eternity together / Time forever with our Lord //

I believe in God with my heart and my soul / And His Son prepares a home for me / Joyful is my heart / I have seen His light / Shining down on us for all to see //

Refrain: Time forever is eternity together / Time forever with our Lord //

We only get one time to go through this life /

* * * * + THREE IN ONE - Bob's Comments: I wrote this song to proclaim my belief in God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. They are three in one, and one in three.

Scriptural References:(Phil. 4:6-8, Romans 15:13, Psalm 54:4 119:105, Luke 10:27)

Lyrics:

Intro: Three in one / Three in one

Three in one / And one in three / Holy Trinity! / Three in one / And one in three / In this I believe

Well you know I need to find / The will of God for my life / Please Father, help me see / Your Holy mystery /

Please Father, bring to me / Your holy mystery /

Three in one / One in three / Holy Trinity! / Three in one / one in three / In this I believe

There are times I feel alone / Need your strength holdin' me / Please Father be with me / Take my hand let me see / Please Father walk with me / Take my hand and carry me //

Three in one / And one in three / Holy Trinity! / Three in one / And one in three / In this I believe

We are children in Your eyes / And Your love is no surprise / Help me to step in faith / For you shall guide my path / Help me to walk in faith / For you shall clear the way //

Three in one / One in three / Holy Trinity! / Three in one / And one in three / In this I believe

Well you know I need to find / The will of God for my life / Please Father, help me see / Your holy mystery /

Please Father, bring to me / Your holy Trinity /

Three in one! /

* * * * + LET GO LET GOD - Bob's Comments: "This song is about letting go of our fears and our worries and placing all our trust in God. It is sometimes very difficult to do since this culture strives to make you believe you are your own God."

Scriptural References: (Psalm 37:5 & 56:3, 1 Peter 5:7, Phil. 4:13, Chronicles 16:11, Romans 8:28)

Lyrics:

Let Go / And Let God / Take you by the hand / Let Go / And Let God / Give you the promised land / Let Go / and Let God / Surround you with His love / Let Go and Let God / Take you by the hand //

So many things can grip our lives / Freeze us in our tracks / Minds can race too quickly now / And bring out all our fears / Thoughts driven by panic / Down a road that won't come back / So We must see / We turn around and know that God is near /

Let Go / And Let God / Take you by the hand / Let Go / And Let God / Give you the promised land / Let Go / and Let God / Surround you with his love / Let Go and Let God / Take you by the hand //

Realize and understand / This life is just a test / Answer to the question is / believe in Jesus Christ / God so dearly loved the world, He gave his only son / Live in peace / Show us how / Love unites as one //

Let Go / And Let God / Take you by the hand / Let Go / And Let God / Give you the promised land / Let Go / and Let God / Surround you with his love / Let Go and Let God / Take you by the hand //

We will stand before the Lord / Give an accounting for our lives / We should know / that our hearts / Will reap what we sow / As you listen to His Words / Let God's Spirit grow / You will find his love and peace / Guide you down the road

Let Go / And Let God / Take you by the hand / Let Go / And Let God / Give you the promised land / Let Go / and Let God / Surround you with his love / Let Go and Let God / Take you by the hand / Repeat

* * * * + LEGACY - Bob's Comments: "This song is about what we want our legacy to be. So many people are just concerned with how much they accumulate and who is going to get it when they are gone. The reality of life is that our legacy must be one of passing on the word of Jesus. That is the only legacy that will count when it is time to account for our lives."

Scriptural References: (Matt: 6:21, 1 John 2:15-16, Acts 1:8, John 1:8, Phil. 2:14-16, Luke 24:25)

Lyrics:

What is your legacy? / What will you leave behind?/ I'm not talkin' material / That stuff just fades away / When you're gone / Lives move on / People will remember you / From the time / That you spent / With the ones / That you love //

This will be your legacy / This will be their memory / Did you pass on the word / About Jesus Christ the Lord / Did you pass on the word / About Jesus Christ the Lord //

Who is your legacy? What do your children believe? / Get down / On your knees / Pray with them to God above / Give them all of your love / And the wisdom of God's Word / And you will see as they grow / And become children of God ///

This will be your legacy / This will be their memory / Did you pass on the word / About Jesus Christ our Lord / Did you pass on the word / About Jesus Christ our Lord /

What will / your legacy / Tell the world / Of your life? / Will you leave to all of them / Witness / to Jesus Christ / We have to realize / that God calls every one of us / Tell the story of HIS Son / And through Him / We are one //

This will be your legacy / This will be their memory / Did you pass / on the Word / About Jesus Christ the Lord / Did you pass on the word / About Jesus Christ the Lord /

Tag: What is your legacy? / What will you leave behind?/
