In Heavenly Love Abiding— Lisa Redfern

In heavenly Love abiding,
No change my heart shall fear;
And safe is such confiding,
For nothing changes here.
The storm may roar without me,
My heart may low be laid;
But God is round about me,
And can I be dismayed?

Wherever He may guide me,
No want shall turn me back;
My Shepherd is beside me,
And nothing can I lack.
His wisdom ever waketh,
His sight is never dim;
He knows the way He taketh,
And I will walk with Him.

Green pastures are before me,
Which yet I have not seen;
Bright skies will soon be o’er me,
Where darkest clouds have been.
My hope I cannot measure,
My path in life is free;
My Father has my treasure,
And He will walk with me.

Listen to Lisa share the inspiration behind In Heavenly Love Abiding.

Lisa Redfern is an award winning singer-songwriter who moved back to Maine in 2009 after spending 14 years in the San Francisco Bay area. She was raised in Maine and first performed with her father, Bob, who taught her to play guitar at age 14. Bob was a folksinger who had his musical beginnings at the legendary Seeger family hootenannies in Washington, DC in the late 1950’s and early 1960’s. Throughout her high school and college years she honed her talents in a variety of settings such as musical theatre, forming her own folk trio as well as an Andrews Sisters tribute group.

With eight solo recordings to her credit so far, she is a singer-songwriter who blends her roots in folk, bluegrass, country, gospel, blues, and swing to create something unmistakably her own. Lisa’s eight recordings have garnered positive critical review, extensive radio play and she has also made several TV appearances. She has added her clear, beautiful voice to dozens of other artists’ projects and song compilations and has opened for many notables, including Livingston Taylor, Dave Mallett & The Roches and shared the stage with Pete Seeger. Some of her CDs are available at CDBABY. See

"All Before Me Peaceful" is part of Lisa's brand new CD, "A Living Prayer."  All of her CDs are available at her website: or you can email her at if you'd like to pay by check or PayPal.
