jsmithers1952 I grew up a gay child from the 50's I was just a child and didn't know why I was different. Never a word was spoken concerning homosexuality and I remained quiet and different until I discovered I could sing well. It gave me a release from the burdens that racked me. I gave up being me to please everyone else. I married twice to please but ended in failure.
i know now how to be true to myself now and so relate to "HIS light will save me"

Three songs featured in the 2013 film The Falls: Testament of Love. His Light Will Save Me was written for the film, to function both as a Mormon hymn (in its acappella form) and as a love song between the two main characters. With My Heart Held Up High is a song I wrote back in 2005 which director Jon Garcia felt was suitable for use in the film. You can find out more about The Falls: Testament of Love at

Track Name: His Light Will Save Me
Here I make my solemn vow
To Keep His light in front of me
In spite of what the dark allows
Of what harm comes unto me

And if I'm faced by mighty waves
and can't swim back and am not saved
I know my soul will be redeemed
My faith in him rescue me

Here I give myself to him
In sweet and clear surrender
I know his love is right and true
I know his love is tender

A storm may rage for endless years
And make real to me all of my fears
Still I will prevail here undimmed
Through my eternal faith in him
Track Name: With My Heart Held Up High
I can withstand all tragedy
And sin inflicted upon me
And sickness without remedy
With my heart held up high

I live a life of servitude
No dreams have I chance to pursue
Only life and live I do
With my heart held up high

The fortunate will weep and wail
When faced with some tiny travail
Where paltry pain sees these fools fail
My heart held up high prevails

Forbearance is the towering word
The flower of all I have suffered
And where it blossoms there I've heard
A heart is held up high
