I'm still a novice with Music but I'm enjoying learning and playing my dulcimers. I love hymns, gospel and old time type music. Fiddle tunes are great. I especially love noter drone. I have two dulcimers set up for that type playing.

Hello Patty, here is my tab for I Am Coming To The Cross:

I am coming to the cross

 

 

I am coming to the cross; I am poor and weak and blind;

0 3     5    3    4    5       3     5  6      7       8      7       5       4
I am counting all but dross; I shall full salvation find.

3  4      5     3     4    5      3      1    1     0    3   5  4      3

 

I am trusting, Lord, in Thee. Blessèd Lamb of Calvary;

0 3     5    3         4      5     3         5    6      7       8   7   5  4
Humbly at Thy cross I bow. Save me, Jesus, save me now.

   3    4    5     3      4    5    3       1       1     0  3       5      4     3

 

Long my heart has sighed for Thee; Long has evil reigned within;

   0      3      5       3       4       5       3         5     6    7 8      7          5   4
Jesus sweetly speaks to me: I will cleanse you from all sin.

 3  4        5   3       4       5    3   1   1       0          3      5     4    3

 

Here I give my all to Thee: Friends and time and earthly store;

   0    3   5    3     4   5     3          5         6      7       8      7    5      4
Soul and body Thine to be, Wholly Thine forevermore.

  3      4      5  3     4     5    3       1    1     0      3  5  4     3

 

In the promises I trust; Now I feel the blood applied;

0   3       5  3   4  5   3         5   6    7     8      7     5      4
I am prostrate in the dust; I with Christ am crucified.

3  4      5     3     4    5     3    1    1        0       3     5  4  3

Hi Patty,

Still trying to get the money, work has been let me used one of there trucks. Only thing is I still had to pay for the gas, which takes money away from us. We had our grandaugther over the weekend, which was fun and she really loves the water and playing in her little pool. I'am heading home from doing a few things, so I stop here at the Library to check on things here. Well better get going and I'll write again.

Hey, Patty.  I and my family are going to Washington, but we decided to stay in Virginia and ride the metro in and out.  We're going to stay in Manassas, near the battlefield park visitors' center; arriving this coming Monday and leaving Thursday.  I'm not completely sure what our daily schedule looks like yet, but please feel free to send me a note if you and your local dulcimer folks are doing anything during that time.  I would still enjoy the opportunity to put faces to names, even if just in passing.

Ken Longfield
06/16/15 11:07:31AM @ken-longfield:

Yes, Patty. Since you could not get in to chat using another operating system and different browser seem to me to indicate that the problem is either with your server or with your account. Trying it at the library with (I hope) a different server will eliminate the server as a problem it you don't get on chat that way. Then the account needs to be checked by Lisa or someone in tech support.
