The Hyssongs

Have you had an experience where you had to convince someone to “Choose Life”? Have you personally faced this choice? The Hyssongs’ new song came from a very personal place for writer Michael Jason Frost.

Here are the lyrics, followed by a video interview with Richard Hyssong, as Michael gives his testimony behind the song…

Michael Jason Frost

Michael Jason Frost

Choose Life
(Michael Jason Frost / Morning Frost Music / BMI)

1)
There’s a woman crying softly, a heavy heart and worried mind
As she wonders how she’ll care for this precious unborn child
Somebody said to her you have a choice, in this day and time
But in spite of her uncertainties, the choice becomes clear in her mind

(Chorus)
She chooses life, full and abundant, a precious gift from Heaven above
Life, in spite of all of its trials, is God’s manifestation of marvelous love
When it seems there’s no other choice you can find,
Remember God created us to prosper and thrive,
The choice becomes clear every time,
Choose life

2)
There’s a man crying softly, a heavy heart and a worried mind
As he ponders a decision to give up, and end it all this time
Somebody said to him you have a choice, find the strength inside
In spite of all his uncertainties, the choice becomes clear in his mind

(Chorus)
He chooses life, full and abundant, a precious gift from Heaven above
Life, in spite of its trials, is God’s manifestation of marvelous love
When it seems there’s no other choice you can find,
Remember God created us to prosper and thrive,
The choice becomes clear every time,
Choose life

3)
There’s a world crying softly, with heavy hearts and worried minds
We’ve forgotten there’s abundant life, through Jesus Christ
We all have a choice before we leave this world behind
Jesus is life, so now is the time to decide

(Chorus)
Choose life, full and abundant, a precious gift from Heaven above
Life, in spite of all of its trials, is God’s manifestation of his marvelous love
When it seems there’s no other choice you can find,
Remember God created us to prosper and thrive,
The choice is clear this time,
Choose life

We hope you enjoy this song as sung by the Hyssongs.

Frost writes score for new Biblical production set to open this March; Trio to be featured in nightly concert

Written by SGN Scoops Staff on March 6, 2013 – 2:24 pm -

PIGEON FORGE, TN — The Michael Frost Trio will be featured in a nightly concert at the new Biblical Times DinnerTheMichaelFrostTrio Theater in Pigeon Forge, TN. Each member will also be featured in a new Biblical production, set to debut March 29.
The trio includes singer / songwriter Michael Jason Frost, his wife Jen Frost, and tenor vocalist Adam Elrod. The trio made their debut in September at the National Quartet Convention, where they were invited to sing on the main stage following a showcase performance. The trio just wrapped up a winter concert tour, visiting over a dozen churches from Illinois to Florida.
At the new dinner theater, the trio will be part of a concert presentation during the dinner hour, along with vocalists Donny Richmond, Maria Albani-Cook, and Paula Michelle. Following the concert, each member will be a featured character in a new Biblical production titled “Kings of Psalms,” presented with holographic technology exclusive to the area. Michael Frost has written 10 original songs for the show.
Frost said audiences should expect an experience completely unique to the area. With theater-style seating and special patented trays, the first hour features a 7-item feast along with the concert. The second hour is the main focus of the evening, with “Kings of Psalms” presented directly from the pages of the Bible. The character of Samuel will be a narrator who will tell the story of how God worked through him to help bring forth three kings – Saul, David, and ultimately Jesus, with music inspired by the writings in Psalms.
The show is directed by Allan Miller, who spent several years as band leader for Shoji Tabuchi in Branson, MO, and also worked with Pastor Gary McSpadden. The new dinner theater, which opened with a Christmas production last November, is the vision of owners Jess and Linda Davis.
The theater opens March 29 with shows planned Monday – Saturday at 6 p.m. Reservations are recommended by calling (888) 908-3327. The theater is located at 2391 Parkway, Pigeon Forge, TN 37863. More information is online at www.biblicaltimestheater.com.
Michael Frost is best known in the southern gospel industry for his songwriting credits, including “That’s God,” “Author and Finisher,” and “Three Words, Three Nails, Three Days.” Michael’s songs can be found on the latest projects by The McKameys, Ivan Parker, Dixie Melody Boys and more.
In addition to performing at the theater, Michael, Jen and Adam will continue their music ministry as “The Michael Frost Trio” in churches and concert events. The trio plans to release a new CD this fall, in addition to a Christmas project of all-original songs. More information about The Michael Frost Trio is online at www.themichaelfrosttrio.com
