Unknown Name or writers

Post by KHhnBrwn » Sat Apr 04, 2020 7:44 pm

My band recorded a song for a CD project and we were unable to find the copyright or writers for this song:

Verse 1:
You may not see my face in the paper, you may not see my name up in lights,
And you won’t find my name in the great hall of fame, just for tryin’ to do what is right,
I may not make a lasting impression, on the people that I chance to meet,
But I made an impression on Jesus, one night when I knelt at His feet.

Chorus:
And I know that I matter to Jesus, for He’s taken me into the fold,
To the world I may look like a pauper, but I’ve something that’s worth more than gold,
In the eyes of the world I’m a loser, but I’m a winner and someday I’ll reign,
In a mansion, joint heir with Jesus, since He made me a child of the King!

Verse 2:
So, let the world have its fill of vain glory, for it’s lost all attraction to me,
I must glory in the work He completed, when He hung there on dark Calvary,
And I‘ve found all the treasures I’d needed, when He gave me this new song to sing,
Praise God I’m joint heir with Jesus, since He made me a child of the King.

Ron and Sharon Frazier recorded it many years ago when song licensing rules weren't as strict as they are now. I need to credit the writers if I wish to include it on a future CD project. I had to leave it off of the CD I wanted it on.

Hi KHhnBrwn

This is a long shot but Ron & Sharon Frazier have a website
https://www.gospelgigs.com/showpage.asp ... hefraziers
that gives a phone number 260-723-4444
at their River City Campground & Music Park
You might call and see if anyone there can give you a lead

Trust this helps
Nancy

I did contact Ron and Sharon, they did not know where they got the song. It is probably from one of the musicians who performed at their campground. Ron and Sharon recorded it but back then, they did not need to know who wrote it to license it for a CD. Today, I need that information before I can license it to put it on my CD.

Good to know, KHhnBrwn
Hopefully we'll find another lead.
We'll keep looking
