Dee singing with the Durden Singers of Austin, Texas at Downtown Stubb Restaurant's Gospel
Sharing the most universal message to the entire world: song. I must sing and rejoice
with or without you, in sickness, in health, in poverty or wealth. Let me praise my God forevermore! From the
mountains, to the oceans from man to man from door to door.
I Give Him All Honor, All Glory, All of me!
AFTER ALL THIS TIME
After all this
time, I have come to know
The deeper truths of God my soul bestows.
T'was the month of man, twice the seven
Giant steps I made higher heights to Heaven.
Growing in His knowledge and in His Grace
I learned to pray in a consecrated place.
I learned to "shabach" and give higher praise
I learned of the Holy Ghost, His Purpose & Ways.
I learned of warfare with secrets of the Word.
I learned things of God I had never heard.
Then, a radical change I made for Thee
I did so in haste -- I did it willfilly.
I had been so many places for so many years
Offering up prayers, strong crying and tears.
I had given up, and partly given in
Fallen into pits, pens, caves and the den.
But it came in the sixth week of the new
There came a bright dawning with the dew.
Of a greater horizon in just one morning
My God endowed me with a fresh anointing.
I became full of awe and had much to say
Satan had silenced and hindered my way.
Spreading his lies and holding me back
Keeping me bound , riddled with lack.
But glory to God again I can pray
I can walk in victory each and every today!
Could it be that life is supposed to be sweet?
Peradventure daily for the humble and meek?
You mean all saints aren't poor and weak?
And there's no excuse for a life of defeat?
Yes! Glory to God I've learned to pray
I can walk in victory each and every day.
Now higher levels in God I declare
I will publish this news to saints everywhere.
As I walk in dominion and in God's style
Who protects in the wilderness from all wild.
I shall walk to perfection in His ways and His
I shall walk and not faint and avoid angry wrath.
I shall walk in His truth up and down in His name
I shall walk steps of faith and His Spirit shall reign.
Walking humbly before Him how I ought to walk
In the newness of life will I walk to my talk.
I shall walk in His wisdom and walk in His might
Then at the Last Day we shall both walk in white.
I was called stubborn, mean, the devil, and other names while
growing up as a child. But all I really remember being, was hurt. No, not over the name calling. It goes
so much deeper than that. My heart ached all the time. I did not know about depression then, but since I've become
older, I understand now that I was very depressed as a child and I lived in fear every day. The fear of not having,
the fear of Hell, the fear of my teachers, and the fear of the KKK. The men in white sheets would march down our streets
often. Do we ever think about the effects that hatred has had on the children? I used to stress out as a small
child wondering why was I born to live in such a mean, cold world so full of hatred, dismay, poverty, pain, and unhappiness.
I did not love myself. No self-esteem. Troubled. Hurt. Beaten. Yet Silent.
Perhaps that is why I am the type of individual who does
not want any living soul on earth to be in pain, poverty, abuse, or any distress. Christ could not tolerate it either.
He healed and delivered everyone He could because of His great compassion for people. There are so many hurting people and children today suffering from things of yesterday.
All people should be able to live life happy, fulfilled and joyful lives. We are all entitled to life,
love, joy, peace and happiness. It is because we are God's masterpiece - because we are a piece
of the Master. We are in Him and He is in Us, therefore, we should attract Blessings, Wealth, Happiness and Health.
That is, again, of course, if He is in Us. I am glad that God is inside me. I am overwhelmed with thanks that
He has forgiven me for all of my mistakes and trangressions. What a merciful God.
Sweet Lord, of all our childhood hurts, pains,
and mistreatments, I pray that You heal, deliver, and cover us with Your Sweet Holy Spirit. Thank you, O merciful Father,
for calling us to put the blood on the doorposts to save our children. How I love Thee with all mine heart, soul, and
I am the 5th child of ten
children born to Supt. (Rev.) Noble L. Cooper, Sr. and Missionary Dorphine Cooper. At the age of 12, I sought God for
salvation, but was discouraged. Later in life, at the age of 17, I received the gift and the Holy Spirit at a small
church they called Centerhill Church of God in Christ. After receiving Christ into my life, I became a new person.
The happiness and freedom within me shined without in the songs I created: "All I Want is Jesus", "Jesus is the Best
Thing", "Come Unto Me", etc. I continued to write songs and poems as I traveled near and far with my parents singing and playing music for the many
revivals and church events. My classmates noticed the difference in my life. My testimony persuaded several of
them to give their lives to Christ. A 100-Voice choir was accredited to my testimony in this small Texas town.
Many of classmates and friends are yet holding on today and that encourages me greatly.
GRADUATION FROM UNIVERSITY
After my High school graduation, I immediately moved to the Sam
Houston State University's campus to pursue a Bachelors of Business Administration. I remained in college and I stayed
saved, though yet very naive. But how I loved Jesus Christ and I talked with Him all the time. I was given the
title Evangelist due to the revival crusade I conducted in the East Texas areas. I believe in informing the Body
of Christ of what's going on in the hidden things of God and satan so that God's people would know how to fight.
To insure awareness, I hosted workshops, conferences, banquets, all-night prayers -- all new to the churches at that
time. To warn everyone, I toured different churches to share the End-Time Prophecy movies. God
then blessed me to graduate from college. I moved to Houston, Texas with high hopes and dreams of prophecies coming
true right away but instead I found that I had to wait many years, and wait, and wait, for God was molding me for
His purpose. I remain on the wheel of destiny willingly. God's timing is not always our timing.
God's timing is hardly ever our timing. I have taken many detours on my road to my Destiny -- I have been forced into
many traps, I have blindly fallen into pits, and I have suffered greatly. I know, though, that Righteousness and Holiness
is always right and it's worth all the heartaches, every pain, every problem, and every pit. God is my destiny.
Back to the Creator is where we belong. Back to Paradise. Eternity.
In the world of work, I continued to have jobs where I was overqualified;
yet, I was not allowed to advance no matter how dedicated I was. And while working and looking for work, I had an affliction
which baffled the doctors. Years later, the disease was identified as fibromyalgia, lupus, and cervical degenerative
disc disease. The pain and suffering became unbearable and almost impossible to control. After being in the workforce
for over 30 years, I was forced to disability. I have to rely on Jesus Christ for I know He understands, but unfortunately
few others do. God is now blessing me to work for Him 100%. When everyone else rejected me, God was there and
He's still there. "Lo, I'll be with you always until the end of the world."
My Shepherd, My Lord
May the Lord be my Sweet Shepherd
And Bless me until I shall not want
And Make me to lie down in green pastures
And Redirect me whenever I don't
And If I have to walk again close
Like the time my child could not be
And like the time when I actually
But was revived like Your Begotten Son
Anoint me, touch me, and Be my Guide
Till I make it to the Promised Land
I've missed much of all my younger
But in the latter I see gold in
You said this would be and so it
Although still I know I'll have
But for You, Lord, it's worth waiting
A gift from Father is better
HEAL THE CHILD
HEAL THE CHILD...
HEAL THE BABY...
HEAL THE CHILD IN ME!
But in the latter I see gold in my
You said this would be and so it is
Although still I know I'll have
But for You, Lord, it's worth waiting
A gift from Father is better
Heal the Child
SAMEKH! it is now my time
Passionate purpose, God's design
Soul awaken, rise and shine
I ride high Heaven's Zion!
I've come full circle to maturity
I stand a warrior for true Destiny.
Now satan himself has to flee
God's standard lifts to vanquish thee
I was a child so young and free
But now full-grown, this I must be
No more the milk of immaturity
But strong in grace and victory.
Live in power, strength and might
Be a warrior, fight, fight, fight
Wander no more the same old plight
Rise up, elevate to highest height.
Above the pain, the hurt, the abuse
Beyond the enemy's traps to confuse
Let all earth know that it is I who rule
This is the day, the time to choose.
Ponder not the paths of times far spent
Let go of old grudges and maloevent
Meditate on the Word that I have sent
Release yourself, revive, repent.
Fill me again Lord with Thine Holy Spirit
Cleanse my soul Lord, and make me whole
Restore my joy Lord, and lead the
Let my Divine Destiny now unfold.
It's for Your Glory and It's for Your
I shall but Honor You all of my days...
This is for Your Joy, the Hope of World
This is for Sisterly and Brotherly Love
Lord I Love to Live to Give praises
I shall trust and acknowledge You in
all I Do
I love you but I may not always know
Which way to turn and where to go
Or how to best be a shining light
In a dark world on my darkest night
Ignite me to burn with fervent fire
Whatever I lack bless me to acquire
There is a battle
between the Spirit of Truth and the Spirit of Error. Truth will prevail! Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach.
Humanity, it's time to get right.
