Bible Verse Songs

Susie Gulick

Bible verse songs, Kings James Version. At 5, "Jesus, forgive my sins/come into my heart," my Sunday School teacher led me in prayer.

 

Since I started going to Sunday School when I was 5 years old, we always had Sunday School songs like, "Jesus Loves Me, This I Know," "Zacchaeus Was a Wee Little Man," & "Everybody Out to Know." We also had Bible verse songs like, "For God So Loved the World" & "Beloved, Now Are We The Sons of God." Of course, lots of the Hymns are based on Bible verses like, "For The Lord God Omnipotent Reigneth" & "He's the Lily of the Valley." Over the past few months, as I read my Bible, I have made a huge list of the references where these songs are in the Bible. :) That's what I'm trying to share in this book, "Bible Verse Songs," like a hymnal without the music notes. In my "Table of Contents," I have listed the references. Then, in my book, I have each reference with the Bible verse chronologically, in Bible book order. :) You'll have to know the tune, find it on the web, or make up your own tune, okay? :) Love, Susie :) God bless you. :)

Congratulations on your book reaching the desk. Well done. I see that all Hell is breaking loose around you now that you are supposed to be overjoyed with happiness of your victory. Of cause the evil one hates that you want to bring the word of God out in this way in your new book. Don’t worry Susie, so many books have been written with references to any bibles. It is vital to contact the company that printed it and apply for copying the passages you need, that is all to it, nothing more. Have a lovely weekend and don’t forget to rest.
Yours sincerely Laila



Dear Laila,

You are absolutely wonderful to write to me such a touching heart-felt message. :)

This was to be like a hymnal for millions of people that sing these songs around the world since the '60s & that don't know all of the words or references :) - I was wanted to bless everyone. :)

Thanks so much for your encouraging words. :) May God open the windows of Heaven on you with so many blessings that you won't even be able to count them. :)

Love, Susie :)

Interesting.

I'm naturally assuming, that if you're reprinting and eventually publishing lyrics to songs you remember, that you've obtained the proper permissions and licensing fees? Even if the songs are public domain, that doesn't mean you can simply do with them what you like. You will still need to do your research and obtain permission through the holders of the estate of the original composer before you can then get the green light to obtain the proper license. My degree is in music from Belmont--one of the two top music universities in the United States--and the laws regarding publishing are VERY strict. We covered this stuff in our very in-depth music business classes as part of our required curriculum, and I still live in Nashville so I'm exposed to this on a daily basis and KNOW whereof I speak. I have friends who work for BMI, ASCAP and SESAC. This town, what with them all here within a square mile of each other is very litigious and won't think twice before bringing suit against you.

Even if you reprint just two lines from a favourite song, then you *MUST* obtain permission from the original composer AND obtain what's called a license. You will pay very hefty fees in order to license this music and then and ONLY then, will you be allowed to proceed forward.

Even if you think you've picked a song behind the 1921 date and it's public domain, this isn't necessarily true and you must *still* check with one of the publishing agencies I've mentioned to see if someone from the composer's estate has bothered to renew the copyright, and if the publishing company holds said copyright in their current catalogues.

The fact is, this is just wrong. You eventually intend to make money from this *if* you can get it to the desk and then get HC onboard, yes? If you're such a great writer, then why are you simply not inventing original material? Why the need to plagiarise from the Bible AND the Christians music industry?

This is absolutely shameful and deplorable that someone who professes to love Christ with all their heart and all their mind can be so devious and underhanded.

Shame on YOU!



Dear Carla,

King James can be quoted. :) These King James Bible verses are sung all over the world by millions of people. :) I have my book, "Bible Songs" under the "Christian" genre. "Christian" means Christ's follower which is based on the Word of God. :) If any man will follow Me, Jesus said, he must deny himself, take up his cross and follow Me. :) Quoting the Bible is all of the world & in all of the Christian books on authonomy. :)

Love, Susie :)

Dear Susie:

You are like a DJ for JESUS!!! Can I make a few requests for your book?

Jesus don't want me for a sunbeam. 'Cause sunbeams are not made like me.
Don't expect me to cry for all the reasons you had to die. Don't ever ask your
love of me.

Don't expect me to cry.
Don't expect me to lie.
Don't expect me to die for thee

AND

Jesus loves me! This I know,
For the Bible tells me so;
Little ones to Him belong,
They are weak but He is strong.

AND

Monday-- I was all alone.
Tuesday-- I had my sins to atone.
Wednesday-- I cried and I cried.
Thursday-- I thought I would die.
Friday-- I started to pray.
Saturday-- I read my Bible all day.
Sunday-- The Heavens did part, I got the love of God in my heart,
Boom, boom, boom
Got a reason for livin' again-- Uh-huh
Got a reason for laughin' again-- Uh-huh
Got a reason for lovin' again-- I got the love of God in my heart.
Boom, boom, boom.

%%%%
Sorry, I never read the Bible except when I was high on caffeine, so I can't give you passages to put with the songs, but if you need a co-author, let me know.

Oh, and I ****** your book.
Wait, will you throw some Hanukkah songs in there as well?

Thanks Susie!

P.S., My name is Susie too! How cool is that?



Dear Susie,

I love, "Jesus loves me" :) - the 1st Sunday School song I learned. :) But, can you believe that it's not a Bible verse, so I couldn't put it in my book? :)

My favorite song now, is Kim Walker's, "Oh, How He Loves Us" :) - the 7 minute plus version, but it's not a Bible verse either. :)

I love that Jesus paid for us on the cross. :) All we have to do is repent & please Him & seek Him & His righteousness & He adds everything. :)

Love, Susie :)

I think all of this book has been written already. Will god mind it if you Plagiarize his words for your own glory? Does god like it when you bend the rules about 10,000 words to feed your pride? Just wondering if any rules apply to you?



Dear T.J.,

I am so happy that you took the time to comment on my new book, "Bible Songs How I Remember Them." Hope you knew some of them. :) "The Word of God is quick and power" Heb. 4:12. Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands." :)

Love, Susie :)
Per, authonomy, duplicate to make word count. :)
Quoting Bible verses is not plagiarism. :)

SusieGulick wrote 1142 days ago

This is the greatest thing I have ever read since "He Loves Me."



Dear Adam/Splinker,

Thank you so very much for your feedback & comment on my new book, "Bible Songs How I Remember Them."

I'm making a joyful noise unto the Lord. :)

Love, Susie :)

If we only quoted Scripture, how could we say anything wrong? You hit on so many of the relevant and insightful verses that contain numerous golden nuggets for us to glean from. In my mind, I was trying to put them to music as I read. Wonderful job, Peter B.

JamesRevoir wrote 1026 days ago

Hello Susie:

I like this book and my earlier comment still stands.

While some of the comments you received with regard to the copyright issues were clearly written with a malicious spirit which transcends the surface issue, when we are resting secure in God's love, His unconditional love empowers us to "eat the meat and throw out the bones." With that in mind, I would advise you to make sure you have done your homework to investigate the potential intellectual property issues which they have raised. After all, publishers do not want to attach themselves to potential legal exposure, and most of all, I know that you do not want to deal with the hassle.

Thank you for the hope that your writing always brings! It runs contrary to the negative spirit of the world and for that reason it produces so much life and so much wonderful, delicious fruit!

Blessings always to you!

James

zack wall wrote 1037 days ago

Your entire book is just recycled Bible verses and copyrighted songs? How is this literature? I'm sorry, but I cannot back this, nor can I give it a good rating. I find it hard to believe that people are actually giving you positive comments(maybe it's because they feel bad for you due to your soliciting backings by making the community aware of your illness so often?) But contrary to their beliefs, this is not a book. Try coming up with something original for a change. God Bless.

JamesRevoir wrote 1041 days ago

Dear Suzie:

I really like this book. It is a simple concept, but by virtue of the fact that it is the Word of God, I am uplifted into the heavenly realms every time I start reading through the songs. It is such a great reminder of who God is and how wonderful He is on so many levels and in so many areas of my life.

Thanks for sharing Him!

God's richest and continual blessings on all that you put your hand to!

Dear Millicent,

Thanks for your "awesome" comment of "He Loves Me" being reviewed by HarperCollins. :)

It was so nice of you to write to me about my new book, "Bible Verse Songs." Yes, I love to share with everyone God's love for us :) - "the joy of the Lord is my strength" :) - that's been put to music, too. :)

I appreciate your taking the time for me & bringing me uplifting greetings. :)

Dear Truth'nLies,

Thank you for taking the time to comment on my book, "Bible Verse Songs" which is like a hymnal :) - Youth For Christ & Campus Crusade used to put out similar booklets when I was growing up in the 50's. :) When you are singing a song you don't know where it is in the Bible, maybe you'll find it in my book, like one lady told me. :) Even David (who killed Goliath) sang Bible verse songs :) - he even played the harp. :)

The Word of God is quick & powerful & sharper than any 2-edged sword & will not return void but will accomplish what it is sent for. :) Did you know that God so loved the world that He sent His only begotten Son, Who died on the cross for us & we celebrate Easter because He arose the 3rd day? :) - & is now sitting at the right hand of the throne of God. :)

Love, Susie :)

I am so happy to hear from you & that your backed & commented on my "Bible Verse Songs" book. :) It was so easy to write because for the last year, every time I came to a Bible verse that has been put to song, I wrote it down. :) I so much appreciate your taking the time for me & your kind words. :)

With pleasure, I read & commented on your darling romantic Kate story. :) I have also gold-******-rated your book. :) I will be able to back your book tomorrow after 7pm California time. :)

Dear Kim,

It was so nice of you to read & comment on my book, "Bible Verse Songs." This is something I have always wanted to to & It was so easy to write over the past year, because when I read the Bible I just wrote down the references of the verses that have been put to song. :)

Whenever you want to swap, let me know & to answer your dilemma about getting authors to put your book on their shelves, most of them will want to, if you suggest "a read & swap," because they have the same problem & want their books to move up, too. :) Richard Maitland is a good commenter. :) So is Rodney Battles. :)

I just went back to make sure that I I had gold-******-rated your darling St. Viper's School for Super Villains" book. :)

Thanks again for taking the time for me & for your encouragement. :)

AM NOT ASKING FOR BACKINGS - the object is to bless CHRISTians in the CHRISTian genre :) - a CHRISTian is a follower of Christ & authonomy has CHRISTian genre & the Christians' handbook is the BIBLE. :)

Anyone on this site can go to your messages and read for themselves where you ask people to back this new stolen book you pasted together. You also ask them to take down your old book and put up this slap- in-the- face of truth book. You STEAL the works and words of others, you LIE about the facts as above shown, and you cheat and deceive new members and christian members with your falsehoods. Where is the quote from your bible that gives you the right to go against the very words of your god? Thou shalt not steal. Thou shalt not bear false witness? Hiding your greed and self-promotion behind the word christian is blasphemy.

You are a laughing stock. Your first book was a mercy-gift from folks that were new and knew no better, or from people who felt sorry for your impending death. The joke is getting old and no one is laughing any more. You get mostly pity. Too bad you did not quit while you were ahead.

You are so pitifully wrong. You sad old thing. You use the words of the bible to glorify yourself and yourself alone. He who puts herself first shall be last in his eyes. Rant and rave your shallow heart out for you are the devils plaything. God vomits you out and is shamed by your lies and deceit.
Halsgal wrote 17 hours ago [reply] [delete]
How sad that you compare yourself to God! He is above you. He does not see you as his equal. His words do not give you any special powers you prideful sinner. Pride cometh before the fall. You are guilty of pride and blasphemy in the eyes of god. He shall punish you with disease and pestilence. Oh, guess he did that already. Ha Ha Ha, He laughs at your feeble attempts at grandeur.

3-21-11 Dear Halsgal, But as many as received Him, to them He gave the power to become the sons of God, even to those who believe on His Name, John 1:12. Who has delivered us from the power of darkness and has translated us into the kingdom of His dear Son, in Whom we have redemption through His blood, even the forgiveness of sins, Colossians 1:13&14. For all have sinned & come short of the glory of God, Romans 3:23. For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord, Romans 6:23. Who has saved us & called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began, but now made manifest by the appearing of our Savior Jesus Christ, Who has abolished death, & Who has brought life & immortality to life through the gospel, II Timothy 1:9&10.
The wicked plots against the just & gnashes upon him with his teeth, the Lord shall laugh at him , for He sees that his day is coming, Psalm 37:12&13. For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me, & He said into me, "My grace is sufficient for thee, for my strength is made perfect in weakness,' most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that power of Christ may rest upon me, therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake, for when I am weak, then I am strong, II Corinthians 12:8-10. :)
Love, Susie :)


3-20-11:
Dear Halsgal,

So nice of you to take all of your time to write to me. :) I immediately prayed, "Father, forgive them for they know not what they do." My heart weeps before God for all the cruel things that had been said by authors on authonmy. ;(

My exact words on my pitch is not what YOU said, "ask people to back" - I SAID, "if you would like to take off "He Loves Me" & put this one on... I would be exhilarated if you put my new book on your bookshelves - it was #4080 on 3-4-11 & is #2827 on 3-20-11 & on 6 bookshelves." :)

The next thing YOU SAY, "new stolen book" which IS NOT STOLEN but a list verses from the Bible which can be sung & are not, as YOU SAY, "copy pasted," I typed it word by word. :)

YOU SAY, 'slap-in-the-face truth book" & SO IT IS, Jesus said that he is The Word, The Way, The Truth, & the Life.

YOU SAY, "you steal the works and words of others" - it is actually the WORD OF GOD quoted by people & sung by people all around the world & this is like a hymnal with the references & words :) - you can look them up for yourself or go to the website & it will give you the tune or you can make up your own tune. :) All God wants is for us to make a joyful noise unto Him. :)

YOU SAY, "you lie about the facts as shown above, and you cheat and deceive new members and Christian members with your falsehoods, which IN FACT, I have spent hours reading & commenting on each of their books & am daily backing books I owe & will be caught up in God's time :) - every author that has put their book on authonomy has written from their heart & deserves to be heard & responded to IN LOVE :) - not tearing down - they got enough of that already throughout their lives - God loves everyone & I TRY to. :) Oh, YOU ASKED, where is the quote in your Bible that gives you the right to go against the very words of our God? It is Galatians 5:13&14 "by love serve one another, love your neighbor as yourself."

YOU SAY, "thou shalt not steal. Thou shalt bear false witness" - BE NOT DECEIVED, II Timothy 2:15, "rightly dividing the Word of Truth" & "go ye into all the world & preach the gospel to every creature" is in obedience to God & our Lord & Saviour, Jesus Christ - Mark 16:15. "My Word that goeth forth out of my mouth shall not return unto Me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please & prosper in the thing whereto I sent it." (Is.55:11). "You might be found to be fighting against God" Acts 5:39. :)

YOU SAY, "hiding your greed and self promotion behind the word Christian is blasphemy." Jesus knows my heart & that I fear Him & tremble (Philippians 2) & want only His will & His glory to be magnified. :)

Warning of what Jesus said in Matt.18:6-10, "Whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck & that he was drowned in the depths of the sea, woe to that man by whom the offenses come, take heed that you offend not one of these little ones, for I say unto you, that in Heaven their angels do always behold the face of My Father which is in Heaven."

YOU SAY, "you are laughing stock" - my rewards are from God & EVERYONE that has had mercy, He will open the windows of Heaven on them with blessings :) - you can't outgive God - "man determines in their heart what they will do, but God determines their outcome" Prov.16:9. I DID MY BEST FOR EACH AUTHOR, AS UNTO THE LORD."

It's all about God :) - it's not about me - I'm His daughter (II Cor. 6:18).

Love, Susie :)

Susie, there is not one original word in this. It has all been said before, and by far better writers than you.

Do you not understand that it is wrong to put YOUR name to something someone else – well, in this case a lot of someones – have written?

I have no difficulty with the religious content – but YOU did not write this.



Dear Ariom,

What part of "hymnal" of Bible Verse Songs do you not understand? - this book is for Christians who want to sing these Bible verses & don't know where to find them :) - & no one is going to start at Genesis & read all the way to Revelation to find them. :) AND, my book is under "Christian" genre :) - Christian means follower of Christ, Acts 11:26, 26:28, I Peter 4:16 :) - love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, soul, strength & mind, & thy neighbor as yourself, Luke 10:27.

Love, Susie :)

SusieGulick wrote 1129 days ago

Mrs. Gulick,

First I would like to tell you that I am glad you love reading the Bible and have a lot of the verses memorized. In America, the King James version is considered so old we don't have a copyright on that Bible, though the other versions need to have permission to be quoted. However, in the UK, anyone who uses the King James version, has to have special permission. This site is a UK branch of HarperCollins. Whatever book they choose to publish on this site with be published in the UK. So, you need to get permission to be able to write this. Perhaps a friend of your could look into it and help you? If you're thinking that HarperCollins will take the responsibility out of your hands and get the permission for you, you are wrong. They don't do that.
Second, you are duplicating part of each chapter just to get the 10,000 words you need for people to read this. On the top of the screen right under your name you have Bible Songs How I Remember Them. As far as I can see you never explain how you remember them. I would suggest writing about what each verse means to you and how you memorized that verse. Then you wouldn't have to duplicate anything.
Mrs. Gulick, I do not want to seem rude and I hope I don't hurt your feelings because that is the last thing I want to do but this has to be said because somewhere along the lines you have become misguided.
I am a Christian. I believe God sent His only son, Jesus Christ to this earth and that He taught the people for a short time before He died on the cross for our sins. I believe that He rose again on the third day and will come back to receive His people. I believe in salvation and a second work of grace. And I believe that no matter what we Christians do we will always be persecuted in one way or another.
You may think that you are being persecuted for a good cause on this site but I'm here to tell you, you are not. Hardly anyone on this site cares that you are dying, really they don't. I care because I consider you a child of God as I do with everyone else on this site but do you really think that God is pleased with the way you have been promoting your book? You tell people to read your books because you have all sorts of diseases and aches and pains and that Jesus loves them.
I know many older Christians who have all sorts of health problems but they don't sit around and complain about the pain or try to get anyone to feel sorry about them. Instead, they wear a smile on their face and want to help you through your problems and if you ask how they are doing, they will immedietly say God good to us.
I know you want your books to be read and you want to impact people's lives through your writing. I want the same thing but stop promoting your book by telling us your family's health history.
Sometimes we Christians need to step back and let God show Himself through our actions. Yes, God told us to go out and preach the gospel to all nations but that doesn't mean we have to be pushy about it. I have found that I have a bigger impact on a non-Christian when I never speak to them about God and just let them watch how I live. More often than not, they become curious and start asking questions, then I gladly tell them about my Savior.
So, Mrs. Gulick, I think you should change your message. Keep promoting God, we must never stop but I think you should do some soul searching and find another way to talk about God because nobody on authonomy is going to listen to you now. Find another way to let His light shine through you and you might be surprised what happens.

Good luck and God bless,

Charmain



Dear Charmain,

Thanks so much for taking the time for me. :) Amazing. :) Yes, I hope I see you in Heaven. :) Remember, it's all about Jesus, His pleasure, His glory, His purpose, His honor, His plan. :)

If I wasn't so sick, I'd get the copyright permission from each author of all the songs I listed & publish it, "Bible Verse Songs Hymnal" but that'll have to be done be someone else. :) When Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa got their new hymnal of which Pastor Chuck & Kay chose each hymn, Maranatha had to get permission, but I'm too sick to follow up :) - I know the Pastor in charge of it, but I'll have get better before I even contact him, maybe they'll like to do it. :) The last 3 days terrible palpitations, dizziness, nausea, pain head to toe, 102 temp, & having to lie down a lot, so am functioning in the strength of the Lord. :)

Love, Susie ;)

Susie, there is not one original word in this. It has all been said before, and by far better writers than you.

Do you not understand that it is wrong to put YOUR name to something someone else – well, in this case a lot of someones – have written?

I have no difficulty with the religious content – but YOU did not write this.



Dear Ariom,

What a tragedy that you don't know any of these songs ;( - if you go on search line of website, you can enter any of them, "song - "I've got a river of life flowing out of me" & you can sing it with them :) - it gives all of the lyrics & tune, too. :)

If I wasn't so sick, I'd go to each author of all these songs that the Bible verses have been put to music & make a "Bible Verse Songs Hymnal" :) - but I'll be dead before that ever happens, with my palpitations & dizziness the last 3 days & needing to lie down all of the time, & rest in Jesus arms. :)

Love, Susie :)
Oh, bless ye the Lord, all ye servants of the Lord, lift up your hands in the sanctuary & bless, bless ye the Lord :) - you can find this one, too, on the website. :) And this one, "Sing to the Lord with all of your heart, sing to Him a new song, sing to Him a new song." It's endless, almost. :)

Charmain wrote 1129 days ago

Mrs. Gulick,

First I would like to tell you that I am glad you love reading the Bible and have a lot of the verses memorized. In America, the King James version is considered so old we don't have a copyright on that Bible, though the other versions need to have permission to be quoted. However, in the UK, anyone who uses the King James version, has to have special permission. This site is a UK branch of HarperCollins. Whatever book they choose to publish on this site with be published in the UK. So, you need to get permission to be able to write this. Perhaps a friend of your could look into it and help you? If you're thinking that HarperCollins will take the responsibility out of your hands and get the permission for you, you are wrong. They don't do that.
Second, you are duplicating part of each chapter just to get the 10,000 words you need for people to read this. On the top of the screen right under your name you have Bible Songs How I Remember Them. As far as I can see you never explain how you remember them. I would suggest writing about what each verse means to you and how you memorized that verse. Then you wouldn't have to duplicate anything.
Mrs. Gulick, I do not want to seem rude and I hope I don't hurt your feelings because that is the last thing I want to do but this has to be said because somewhere along the lines you have become misguided.
I am a Christian. I believe God sent His only son, Jesus Christ to this earth and that He taught the people for a short time before He died on the cross for our sins. I believe that He rose again on the third day and will come back to receive His people. I believe in salvation and a second work of grace. And I believe that no matter what we Christians do we will always be persecuted in one way or another.
You may think that you are being persecuted for a good cause on this site but I'm here to tell you, you are not. Hardly anyone on this site cares that you are dying, really they don't. I care because I consider you a child of God as I do with everyone else on this site but do you really think that God is pleased with the way you have been promoting your book? You tell people to read your books because you have all sorts of diseases and aches and pains and that Jesus loves them.
I know many older Christians who have all sorts of health problems but they don't sit around and complain about the pain or try to get anyone to feel sorry about them. Instead, they wear a smile on their face and want to help you through your problems and if you ask how they are doing, they will immedietly say God good to us.
I know you want your books to be read and you want to impact people's lives through your writing. I want the same thing but stop promoting your book by telling us your family's health history.
Sometimes we Christians need to step back and let God show Himself through our actions. Yes, God told us to go out and preach the gospel to all nations but that doesn't mean we have to be pushy about it. I have found that I have a bigger impact on a non-Christian when I never speak to them about God and just let them watch how I live. More often than not, they become curious and start asking questions, then I gladly tell them about my Savior.
So, Mrs. Gulick, I think you should change your message. Keep promoting God, we must never stop but I think you should do some soul searching and find another way to talk about God because nobody on authonomy is going to listen to you now. Find another way to let His light shine through you and you might be surprised what happens.

Good luck and God bless,

Charmain

while asking for backings, you're misinforming people about how the ranking system works. the speed of your book going up the ranks has nothing to do with the color of arrows of books on your shelf. that only affects your ranking as a book rater- not your book's ranking.

Richard Maitland wrote 1133 days ago

You are mistaken. Excerpts from the Bible may NOT be reprinted or published without payment of a royalty.

The King James Bible is, in the UK, under perpetual Crown copyright. That means excerpts from it can only be reproduced with permission of, and on payment of royalties to, the Crown Estates (i.e., Her Majesty The Queen, who is the Head of the English Church).

Authonomy is UK-based. Therefore, you are involving Authonomy -- and, by extension, HarperCollins -- in breach of copyright.


Job 19, 23, was not a Divine request for you to copy the stuff onto a creative writers' site.


SusieGulick wrote 1135 days ago

This is ridiculous. Who is still falling for this woman's insanity? I got an email from her saying that she needed my backing on her last book because she was dying and wanted to see the book on the editor's desk before she went ...

Seems you're still here Susie ... a "miracle" perhaps? :(

The abusive comments on this board are nothing compared to the abuse of trust this woman has enjoyed.



Dear A J,

Thanks for writing to me. :) Hope you read my updated profile page of my fever, etc. :) I'm totally struggling to get out of bed & barely doing the computer, now, but I didn't die yet & I'll keep trying until I am dead - then, I'll be with Jesus. :)

I am so appreciative I don't have the stress of getting to the editor's desk anymore because, with the help of all the wonderful people on authonomy, I finally, after a year of trying, got chosen in the top 5 of the editor's desk. :)

I am now only asking backings of my friends & people who have written to me for my new book, "Bible Verse Songs," which I put on March 1, 2011 that I had been working on the past year. :)

All the people who I have promised to put on my shelf, I'm backing every 24 hours until I've reciprocated with everyone. :) Authors, like Kellen & Walden who helped me for months, I'll try to help them to be chosen on the author's desk & as everyone who has helped me, when they get into the top 5, I'll help, like they helped me. :)

Love, Susie :)

I find many of the comments her cruel an unneccesary, many worthy of being reported as abuse! That said I will suggest Susie that you not just qoute verbatim bible and song phrases but add commentary or personal interpretations to back the "Bible verses and songs as I remember them Premise." I am not a big supporter of pushy christianity, I have my faith quietely, but I think there is a beauty to the word if shared on personal level with reflections and depth. I wish you well and do hope youn will consider adding a bit of yourself to this rather than leave it as a book of qoutations. Personalize, give it meaning and purpose.



Dear Jeri,

You are so very kind to send me your encouragement & suggestions :) - I do hope I'll be able to follow through with it. :) I am really struggling right now with high fever, bladder infection, shingles, arthritic pain head to toe, totally weary & have done very little in getting caught up from the deluge of messages & promised read/comments & only with God's help, will I go on. :)

Thanks so much for our care & love. :)

Love, Susie :)

No Susie No this is not right and itis not fair to the other autrhors who spend hours and hours writing original material. I am sorry to see this. I supported you before because I thought it took courage to write your story. I will NOT be supporting you on this. This is shameful.

Halsgal wrote 1138 days ago

AM NOT ASKING FOR BACKINGS - the object is to bless CHRISTians in the CHRISTian genre :) - a CHRISTian is a follower of Christ & authonomy has CHRISTian genre & the Christians' handbook is the BIBLE. :)

Anyone on this site can go to your messages and read for themselves where you ask people to back this new stolen book you pasted together. You also ask them to take down your old book and put up this slap- in-the- face of truth book. You STEAL the works and words of others, you LIE about the facts as above shown, and you cheat and deceive new members and christian members with your falsehoods. Where is the quote from your bible that gives you the right to go against the very words of your god? Thou shalt not steal. Thou shalt not bear false witness? Hiding your greed and self-promotion behind the word christian is blasphemy.

You are a laughing stock. Your first book was a mercy-gift from folks that were new and knew no better, or from people who felt sorry for your impending death. The joke is getting old and no one is laughing any more. You get mostly pity. Too bad you did not quit while you were ahead.

Halsgal wrote 1138 days ago

It is so very, very sad. It is like watching some poor old soul sink slowly into Alzheimer's. The poor old pitiful thing is doing anything for some attention. Just leave your single little star and turn away folks. There is nothing here to see.

Don't you hate it when folks copy and paste comments?

Dear Susie, I love the goodness of your pitch, telling of King James, God, & all his beautiful angels & am wondering what can be more haleelooya than that when the end of days comes a calling" & can hardly wait to see my granddaughter born again, her father being pastor and prophet for 11 years… and all the saints preserve us****** In your chapter 1 where songs are sung all around the world and Exodus Isaiah and Jeremiah are everywhere, and Mathew and John and revelations like the yellow pages to the singalonga in the highest high... sounded like great fun & then there was Gabriel :) - is this the Sunday School as you quoted in chapter 1? :) Chapter 3, OH LORD ABOVE, I said out loud, "said PRAISE BE and everything else:) - I don't know why because I had nightmares of The Exorcist till I was a grown up, as you'll see in my memoirs when I find the time to cut and paste them, write them I mean :) I wondered & wondered and wandered & wandered and sang out loud & happy; but my singing is sinful as you will find out in Volume 2 of my upcoming memoir called Glory Be))) Read & read and back & back and rate & rate))) In chapter 4, I love that you sing & sing. :) I liked that. That you sing and sing and hymn and hymn :) Also, in chapter 5 - you sing & sing and hymn & hymn… and it gave me great joy that you hymn & hymn with a huge difference. :) :) I don't know what paracetomol is but I found your book a fine relaxative and loved that it worked so well :) Finishing with a hymn on chapter 5 threw me a little and gave a tetchy twist to your tail:)) but your story is still way up in the air like in the heavens and is breaking my heart to being solved? - does the funeral march in chapter 6 have a happy ending or is it forever dead as eh Dodo birdie? :) Love, JJ :)
None of this comment is copy/pasted & took a very long time, arduously, even, as I"m sure your book did, too. :) 20 years ago, I could sing sing & sing and hymn hymn & hymn at 85mph, but since recently, umpa lumpa syndrome has left me barely sing singing & hymn hymning at all - just sitting up straight and croaking in a loud snail snail, I make tons of typos & it's really hard to do, but I pray a lot, sing a lot & hymn a great deal too too:)

SusieGulick wrote 1139 days ago

I'm sorry, but there aren't enough smiley faces and bible verses in all of authonomy to gloss over the fact that you are blatantly plagarizing other people's work. Further, you're breaking one of the commandments you hold so dear: Thou shalt not Steal. Suzie, I'm sorry, but what you have accomplished here, although I'm sure it's very theraputic for you, is breaking the law, and the rules of authonomy. I admire your devotion to your religion, but enough is enough already. No backing from me.



Dear Jessica,

Thank so much for taking the time to write to me & give me your feedback. :)

"Bible Verse Songs" is just for millions of people around the world who have sung these verses since the 60's & who don't know where to find them in the Bible, but the songs are on their hearts, so they can look them up, now & sing them - you can put your own tune to them, even. :) I even use my prayer language tune for verses I'm memorizing & it is a sweet smelling fragrance unto the Lord. :)

Love, Susie :)

you said you weren't seeking backings for this book, yet all your comments to other people ask them to shelve your new book.

i'm concerned that you aren't actually reading the books you review. your reviews are identical, switching out a quoted section from the book's pitch. you give false flattery and a few details about your ailing health and ask for a backing.



Dear Katie,

Yes, I have spent hours reading the books & commenting on them, finding the good & what strikes me & saying so. :) Most people don't read the books, but I get hooked & have to find out what happened & I love when they make me laugh, giving me endorphins for my pain. :)

No, I am not asking any new authors for backings/******-ings & am only getting caught up on my 8 pages behind of messages, so am responding only to people WHO WRITE TO ME. :) My friends who have "He Loves Me" on their bookshelves, I am asking them to take it off their shelves & telling them about "Bible Verse Songs" if they want to back it. :) This book is to be a blessing & has been on my heart for years. :) I have a long list of people I've promised to back & am doing them one at of time. :)

As to my health, today I have 102.2 fever, bladder infection, pain head to toe with 4 arthritises, struggling to sit up, homebound, but am like Debbie Reynolds in "Unsinkable Molly Brown, "nobody's going to get me down" :) - I'll probably die trying to sit up. :)

And I am trying to my best as unto the Lord. :)

Love, Susie :)

SusieGulick wrote 1139 days ago

Hey Susie -- Songs based on the Bible are still original works -- the authors of these songs have arranged lines from the Bible in their own original way to Praise God. The authors own these works, and you are stealing them.

You are stealing in the name of Jesus -- very uncool. You're breaking the rules of this site (like duplicating the whole thing to falsely meet authonomy criteria -- in effect, lying). Also uncool.

You're not calling anyone to Christ, you're not bringing glory to His name -- you're stealing, cheating and lying in His name. If you love Jesus, write about your love for Him -- your own original thoughts -- with the creative ability that God gave humans, and share that.



Dear Naomi,

Thank you for taking the time to write to me. :)

"Bible Verse Songs" is like a hymnal for millions of people around the world who don't know where to find them in the Bible :) - they can even sing them from the Bible when they look they up because I have the references. :) God said to make a joyful noise unto the Lord & that's what I do all day long, singing to Him & so do millions of other people around the world. :)

Love, Susie :)

"These SONGS are sung by millions of people all around the world."

So is Happy Birthday, but it's still copyrighted: http://www.snopes.com/music/songs/birthday.asp - as, presumably, are the songs you're quoting in your upload.



Dear NMott,

Liberace said that, "Happy Birthday" is the most butchered off-key song that is sung in the whole wide world. :)

"Bible Verse Songs" is like a hymnal for millions of people around the world that have sung these songs since the '60s, who don't know where to find them in the Bible & to see the words, in case they are unsure of them. :) I wrote it to be a blessing for everyone & so they can sing unto the Lord these favorite Bible verses. :)

Love, Susie :)

SusieGulick wrote 1139 days ago

Dear Susie, I came to see what all the fuss is about.

I gotta say, I don't see the point of just parroting Bible verses (though the whole copyright thing RE the King James version of the Bible is pretty silly). But still, I don't get it. If people wanted to read this, they'd go to the source.

If you don't mind a suggestion, I think if you accompany each verse with an essay explaining WHY it is significant to YOU, it would be much more interesting than a laundry list of quotes with no context. (That is actually what I thought this would be, from your pitch.)

Get on with your bad self.

-Frankie



Dear Frankie,

It is so wonderful that you took the time to write to me & to give me suggestions. :)

"Bible Verse Songs" is like a hymnal for millions of people around the world who have sung these songs since the 60s & don't know where to find them in the Bible and aren't sure of all the words, even, so it is supposed to be a blessing. :) My mom used to sing from her hymn book while she was ironing/piece work & this is what I pictured of my book. :) She has been with Jesus since '86 & is in no more pain & happy as a lark running around Heaven, now. :)

Love, Susie :)

SusieGulick wrote 1139 days ago

I've glanced at your work. Fortunately I possess both a Bible and a Hymn book of my own, so I didn't need to look at more than the first line you wrote.
I will give you a word to the wise, though. You are making yourself look ridiculous. Since you choose to ignore the comments others offer you, I can only assume you are on here for some self-glory of your own, certainly God doesn't seek it for himself.
As I can see no humility in you, no meekness nor genuine thought for others, as with your first book, I find it impossible to back this. Margaret.



Dear Margaret,

Thank you for taking the time to write to me. :) I am so happy that you have a Bible & a hymnal. :) Did you know where to find all of these Bible songs that I listed and did you know all of the words? :) "Bible Verse Songs" is to be a blessing to millions around the world who have sung these Bible verses since the 60s & have no idea where to find them in the Bible, nor all the words. :)

He that sits on the throne shall laugh, the Lord shall have them in derision. Ps.2:4 :) It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the Lord, I fear God & tremble, He is a consuming fire. Heb.12 :) I will praise the Lord for I am fearfully & wonderfully made & that my soul knows right well. Ps.139. :)

Love, Susie :)

Congratulations on your book reaching the desk. Well done. I see that all Hell is breaking loose around you now that you are supposed to be overjoyed with happiness of your victory. Of cause the evil one hates that you want to bring the word of God out in this way in your new book. Don’t worry Susie, so many books have been written with references to any bibles. It is vital to contact the company that printed it and apply for copying the passages you need, that is all to it, nothing more. Have a lovely weekend and don’t forget to rest.
Yours sincerely Laila



Dear Laila,

You are absolutely wonderful to write to me such a touching heart-felt message. :)

This was to be like a hymnal for millions of people that sing these songs around the world since the '60s & that don't know all of the words or references :) - I was wanted to bless everyone. :)

Thanks so much for your encouraging words. :) May God open the windows of Heaven on you with so many blessings that you won't even be able to count them. :)

John Lennon once suggested that the Beatles could be bigger than Jesus. He also recycled the remark,' you are only as good as the last thing you did.'. In your case, that is not the bible.



Dear Rebecca,

I love the Beatles :) - I was in my 20s when they came out. :) "She loves you, yay, yay, yeah." Then, there was "Imagine" or also "And then I go and spoil it all by saying something stupid, like 'I love you.' " :)

I wanted "Bible Verse Songs" to be like a hymnal for millions of people around the world that sing these verses since the 60s & they don't know the references or all of the words, so they could look them up, even, & sing them. :)
