Coffee Shop Concert—Mela Kamin

On Stage

I Pray, by Mela Kamin
You Belong To Me, by Mela Kamin

Artist

MelaMela Kamin (may-luh kay-min), struggled to step out of the box she put herself in, as a busy Mom of three. Educated as a journalist and intensely creative, she was longing to find a purpose that not only used her talents, but moved her. She filled herself up with her kids, volunteering and dabbling in other creative pastimes. But when she found her voice and the faith to use it, she finally found what she was looking for.

In 2008, on the prompting of a friend, she decided to use her skills in writing and love for music, to step out in faith as a singer/songwriter. It started with one song, one opportunity, one door divinely opened by an amazing God. One of those doors revealed Carl Herrgesell and together with friend & Co-Producer Dan Needham, they co-wrote and arranged the songs on her debut Summer in My Soul in 2009.

As a former writer, editor and communications consultant, Mela was immediately comfortable on stage and skilled in delivering a message to varying audiences. She feels blessed to have the opportunity to travel to churches, women’s ministry events, retreats, Moms’ groups and prayer gatherings, to encourage people to use their gifts in service to others.

Mela’s lyrics are heartfelt, poignant and speak to the discoveries she’s made as she’s uncovering her God-given gifts and walking in obedience where He leads.

Lyrics

I Pray
©Mela Kamin

Whenever I fall
Whenever I need a friend
Whenever I’m near the end
I Pray

When life is enough
The future is hard to see
I fall down to my knees
I pray

It’s your voice I need inside of me
I believe your hand is guiding me
All I wanna be is near to you

When the hurt is too much
All I wanna do is cry
You hear what I try to hide
When I pray

When life is so sweet
Your mercy falls down on me
My heart is filled with thanks
I pray

It’s your voice I need inside of me
I believe your hand is guiding me
All I wanna be is near to you

Chorus

Whenever you fall
Whenever you need a friend
Whenever you’re near the end
Just pray

You Belong To Me
©Mela Kamin

It seems like every time I think I’ve seen it all
the thunder comes right back and then the rains fall
Sometimes I step out – remember who I’ve been
the ground beneath me falls, I’m on my knees again

And God said, “Remember who I am. And, don’t
forget the grace by which you stand. I have heard
you crying in the night. Tell the storm you belong
to me.”

You Belong, you belong to me

And even when it’s calm – I know I need your care.
In a moment wind may swell and then I’m worrying.
My burdens get the best of me, drowning in anxiety.
Oh, God would you notice me down here.

And God said, “Remember who I am. And, don’t
forget the grace by which you stand. I have heard
you crying in the night. Tell the storm you belong
to me.”

Let the rains comes
Let the winds blow
I cry out to you
You’re my shelter
You’re my refuge
You are greater, you are greater, ‘cuz you said

“Remember who I am. And, don’t
forget the grace by which you stand. I have heard
you crying in the night. Tell the storm you belong –
tell the storm you belong to me.”
