NIV Bible Verse of the Day

No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.

About Farm Country Gospel Music

Farm Country Gospel Music (fcgmusic) was founded in 1997, as the banner to be used to promote the first Gospel music album written and produced by Don Cooper. The name was devised to show Don’s love for farm life as well as music, and especially Gospel oriented music. Our mission statement is:

“Dedicated to the glory of Jesus Christ and God’s true word the Holy Bible.”

Since that very first album “He Gave Us Jesus”, a second album, “Jesus Is The Only Way To Heaven”, has been produced, Don has pursued an interest in writing poetry. Poetry is a natural progression from song writing. Song lyrics consist of poetry in their own right. Don is somewhat embarrassed to write Gospel music when there are already so many wonderful songs which he loves to sing and enjoy, written by other great song writers.

Some of Don’s poetry has been combined with photos taken on his digital camera. He has also written a book, “From The Heart Of An Old Farmer”, which is a compilation of poetry as well as lyrics from both of his albums.

A presentation of his music and poetry has been appreciated by various local groups who have enjoyed this farmer’s twist on Jesus’ presence throughout his life.

God is Awesome, Wonderful, The Alpha and The Omega! God is indeed good to all of us. Don feels that one of the most wonderful gifts God has given to him personally, is the gift of filling his mind with melodies and poetry, and prays that God allows you to receive as much enjoyment hearing and reading them as Don has had writing them.

You may listen to excerpts from Don’s music and contact him to purchase the albums on CD or cassette, or the book if you are interested.

If you like Don’s work, please remember him in your prayers. Ask the Lord to guide his writing, that it will always be pleasing to Him, and in agreement with His Will.

Thanks and God Bless,

Colossians 3:16-17 (NIV)

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly
as you teach and admonish one another
with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms,
hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude
in your hearts to God. And whatever you do,
whether in word or deed, do it all in the name
of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father
through him.
