If They Asked Me I Could Write a Song
"Sing GOD a brand-new song." Psalm 96:1
Most classic hymns and many contemporary worship songs contain powerful lyrics penned by non-musicians. Published songwriter Marty Nystrom will encourage and equip wordsmiths to stir up fresh and usable ideas for effective songs. Learn how to submit lyrics and collaborate with musicians.
I am a married father of two sons and live in the Seattle area. My degree is in music education and I have taught music in a wide variety of settings. I have written over 120 songs that have been released by publishers of Christian praise and worship music. My best known song is the worship chorus, “As the Deer.”
In 2006 Standard Publishing released my collection of humorous poems entitled “Don’t Mess With Moses!” It was illustrated by veteran artist Steve Bjorkman. I have just completed a sequel to the book and hope for it to be in print soon.
The purpose of my two books is to pique kid’s curiosity in the Bible and to see it as interesting, exciting and well worth reading!
