Apple of Your Eye

I wrote this lyric after an amazing time of worship.  I had just read Psalm 17:8 where David says, “Keep me as the apple of your eye…”  It’s an incredible thing to know that, no matter what, God loves us beyond anything we have ever known.  As it declares in Ephesians, “…to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ.” Download or play: [audio:http://benwardmusic.com/wp-content/uploads/You-Love-Me.mp3|titles=You Love Me|artists=Ben Ward] You Love Me CHORUS: I’m the apple of […]

I’m Hungry

This week, I’ve got a wonderful worship song that I hope you’ll enjoy.  I love doing it in this slow, contemplative way.  I could sing it for hours! (thanks Harold Greene).  It was written by Kathryn Scott from the Vineyard in Ireland (we’re getting intenational here).

There’s Still a Fight in Me

New song this week written with one of my favorite people in the world, Anje Dowler, and Katie Dean.  It’s got a “James Taylor Moment” in the middle where the key goes up and I have to move the capo in a split second.  Watch for it :).

I’m Breaking the Speed Limit

One of those days

Wednesday was not a great day.  Nothing bad happened.  It just wasn’t good.  Have you ever had one of those days? I stayed home from work to wait on the exterminator (another long story…) who never came.  I tried to record a new song for the YouTube Sessions on keyboard and I just couldn’t get a good take.  At about ten o’clock I decided to pack the recording stuff up (it’s New York – there no room for a dedicated […]

Love Song for Olivia (11 Years!)

This past Saturday was our 11th anniversary so I did what any good songwriter does  [:) ] and wrote her a song.  If you’re interested, the last anniversary song I wrote Olivia was “Like This” from my album State I’m In. Let me know what you think! Download the MP3 here.  Play here: [audio:http://benwardmusic.com/wp-content/uploads/11-Years.mp3|titles=11 Years|artists=Ben Ward]
