Check out my Ishmaels Songs YouTube channel

Just to let you know that I’ve posted up 2 more videos for you to enjoy on my YouTube channel.
1) Zacchaeus. The story of the little tax man who completely changed once he met Jesus.
2) Don’t be lazy…minus the drum solo sadly!

Hebrews 6 v 12, a great fun way to learn this very important Bible verse.

Little man.

Just to let you know that I have just put up a new music video on my Ishmaels Music YouTube channel. Have you subscribed yet?

Little Man

The story Jesus told about the wise man who built his house upon the rock and the foolish man who built his house upon the sand.

Great fun song.


As most of you know, I am at present involved in two writing projects that are very different and I pray for Gods inspiration and guidance as I daily set my mind on both.

One is the ‘Coping with Cancer’ book which Irene and I at last feel able to write, Irene from the carers point of view and myself of course from the patients perspective. This is coming on so well, totally honest and I believe going to bless / surprise many when published in the next few months. More about the book later.

The other of course is the new Scripture Song album which is zooming along and I’m writing lots of songs that work and are doing exactly what I hoped they would do! What do I mean by that…well even after writing them and listening back to them just a couple of times..they are already solidly stuck in my memory and buzzing around my brain…just like Hebrews 11 v 6 did for some of you.

I will choose 20 of the songs for the first album and save the many others for Vol 2, 3 etc!.Now I haven’t mentioned about funding it for a while so please forgive me if I give that another quick mention.

I know you’ve sent me many suggestions of how I could raise the £4,000 needed, which I still might have to pursue at a later date, but I’m still feeling that there may be a few Christians out there who have been wonderfully blessed by God financially and may want to help support the funding of this album because they can see the importance of investing in something that is going to help so many people young and old, both learn and remember Gods Word.

No, it’s not going to be a best seller or financially ‘successful’ but it will be a resource that will not date and I believe will bless people for many years to come just like my previous Scripture Song albums have.

Of course I could be wrong and we may need to do crowd funding or something similar, but I’m going to seek out any spiritual investors just one last time.

3 more songs added to my YouTube channel

Just to let you know that I have just put up 3 new music videos on my Ishmaels Music YouTube channel. Have you subscribed yet?

1) ‘You need power to be a Glorie’, one of my favourite Glorie songs.

2) ‘For the Lamb at the centre of the throne’. I love the words ‘and God will wipe away every tear from their eyes’ Rev 7 v 17

3) ‘The welcome song’. The best way to begin a service where all ages can relax, interact and welcome each other…after the Covid restrictions have been lifted of course!

Almighty God is here

Just to let you know that I have just put up a new music/video on my Ishmaels Music YouTube channel of me singing ‘Almighty God is here’.

I still love this old song as it contains both worship and reflection.

This song can be enjoyed with full band arrangement on two Ishmael albums ‘Training up the troops’ and a wonderful version with my buddy Andy Piercy singing it on ‘Songs & Hymns’. Both song and albums can be downloaded from Ish’s shop on his website
