Lion of the tribe of Judah, You're the Lord of the people of praise 

Lion of the tribe of Judah, Praise the Lord 

Lion of the tribe of Judah, You're the Lord of the people of Praise 

Lion of the tribe of Judah, Praise the Lord

 

Lion of the tribe of Judah, Son of God & Son of man 

Born of the Virgin Mary in a barn in Bethlehem

 

Lion of the tribe of Judah You turned water into wine 

Made the lame to walk & gave sight to the blind! 

 

Praise the Lord, Praise the Lord 

Let Everything with breath Praise the Lord 

Praise the Lord, Praise the Lord 

Let Everything with breath Praise the Lord 

 

Lion of the tribe of Judah, You caught a few old fishermen

You taught them how to cast a line 

And how to fish for men 

 

Lion of the tribe of Judah, You raised a brother from the Dead 

Now the rest of us, like Lazarus 

Can all be born again!  Praise the Lord,

 

 Lion of the tribe of Judah, on the cross of Calvary 

You defeated death & hell & set your people free 

 

Lion of the tribe of Judah, the grave could not restrain

Sunday morning you arose,

When an Angel rolled the rock away

 

Lion of the tribe of Judah, You’re the soon & coming King 

We believe you’re coming back 

To take us home again! 

 

Lion of the tribe of Judah, You're the Lord of the people of praise 

Lion of the tribe of Judah, Praise the Lord 

Lion of the tribe of Judah, You're the Lord of the people of Praise 

Lion of the tribe of Judah, Praise the Lord

 

Lion of the Tribe of Judah We lift you high & make You known 

Jesus You alone are God &  kIng 

In our praises be enthroned!!!!!! 

 

Lion of the Tribe of Judah We lift you high & make You known 

You alone are King of KIngs 

In our praises be enthroned!!!!!!

“WHEN COUNTRY WASN'T COOL”

In 1981 when Ron Diller & I left Radiance to become an acoustic duo, we were writing songs that musically reflected the country Rock sound of bands such as Poco, & the Eagles!    A style that we both liked a lot!   However, most of our ministry opportunities involved playing for high school students in youth groups & para- church organizations such as Youth for Christ/ Campus Life!  The popular music of such an audience, unlike today, wasn't country flavored music but a more mainstream Arena Rock Sound popular in the day.  Therefore in about 1984 Ron & I made the decision to change our musical direction to a more Christian Rock & Roll Sound, a direction that also suited Blair Masters our younger new musical partner!  As a result several country Rock sounding tunes such as Desert in Your Heart were dropped from the bands playlist  This musical change is evident in the style & sound of our 1985 album release entitled, AGGRESSIVE!   Now in 2023 with country music being so popular it seems the time is right to release some of these new "old" songs!

 

in about, 2021 Ron Diller & I discussed recording an entirely new Diller & Anderson Album.  We determined that that wasn't The direction that we believed God wanted us to go!   So as I considered a follow up to my 2009 STEPHEN LEVI ANDERSON; JERICHOS & GIANTS,  solo release, I decided to make it less a solo album and instead release a series of singles performed by friends & artists that I've invited who were a part of the birth of each of these songs!

I'm calling this new collection of my music, "ANDERPSALMS". And yes, this new collection of songs will include several new songs written & performed by, The Diller & Anderson Band, the first being, "Rainy Days in Heaven!"  Blair Masters has produced the Drum, Piano & B3 organ track in Nashville!   He recently sent this track to me & now Ron Diller & I are preparing to add guitars, bass & vocals!  In addition we are excited to share that we have secured the services of Dom Franco, a pedal steel artist,  best known for his work on early 80's Maranatha albums by the bands, BETHLEHEM & DANIEL AMOS!  Look for a release of, "Rainy Days in Heaven", in the Spring  of 2024!

THE AWESOME ART OF OUR GOD

Lyrics by Stephen Levi Anderson, music by 

SLA, Ronnie Lee Diller, & Blair Masters

(C) 2024, Anderpsalms Music CO,

 

With Your voice, oh God, You declared reality 

You spoke aloud And all creation came to be 

From mountain high to the valley low 

From pounding ocean waves to a softly falling snow

 

We lift up our voices, stand  & applaud 

The beauty of Creation, awesome art of our God 

Yes, we lift up our voices,

We stand in awe of

Our King & our Creator,

The Awesome Art of our God 

 

With the mighty sound 

Of a rushing wind  

Your Holy Spirit, God  

Was ushered in 

Come to restore all that was lost 

The mighty power of Pentecost 

(Repeat Chorus) 

(Bridge) 

Your Holy Spirit travels on sound 

Let’s Praise Him loud & Praise Him long

Lift Him high & make Him known 

Jesus Come & be enthroned
