Scripture References;

Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:

Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. Isaiah 55: 6-7 KJV

Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me, Psalm 40:7 KJV

15 My frame was not hidden from You when I was being formed in secret [and] intricately and curiously wrought [as if embroidered with various colors] in the depths of the earth [a region of darkness and mystery].

16 Your eyes saw my unformed substance, and in Your book all the days [of my life] were written before ever they took shape, when as yet there was none of them.

17 How precious and weighty also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How vast is the sum of them!

18 If I could count them, they would be more in number than the sand. When I awoke, [could I count to the end] I would still be with You. Psalm 139:15-18 Amplified Bible

11 Let us therefore strive to enter that rest, so that no one may fall by the same sort of disobedience. 12 Forthe word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart. 13 And no creature is hidden from his sight, but all are naked and exposed to the eyes of him to whom we must give account. Hebrews 4:11-13 ESV

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. Psalm 119:105 KJV

 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away Luke 21:33 KJV

Below is “Stairway to Ponder”, my response to “Stairway to Heaven”,  and below that are the words to “Stairway To Heaven” by Led Zeppelin, so you can compare and contrast the two songs.  I wrote it in January of 2010. The stanza where I wrote ” In my heart I’m secure though my eyes might obscure” is in reference to the fact that Christians walk by faith and not by sight as described in Hebrews chapter 11.)

Stairway To Ponder 

by Theresa Moore

There’s a lady who’s sure
There are things to behold
And she’s climbing a stairway…to ponder

When she gets there she knows
All the doors might be closed
But they’ll open if she turns their handles

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
And she’s climbing a stairway…to ponder

So many books line the walls
But she wants to be sure
Cause you can’t judge a book
By its cover

Through the window she looks
At a sky so serene
And it promises life here
Is fleeting

Ooh, I stand in wonder
Ooh, I stand in wonder

There’s a feeling I get
When I look to the sky
For I know that my Lord
Is returning

In my heart I’m secure
though my eyes might obscure
For He’s promised to lead those
Who seek Him

Ooh, I stand in wonder

Ooh, I really stand in wonder

And although we have sin
If we call out to Him
We will all receive life everlasting

And The Day Star will Shine
And we’ll no longer pine
And in Heaven there
Will be rejoicing

Oh, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, ooh, whoa, oh

To every thing there is a season
A time and season
To every purpose
Under Heaven

Yes, there are two paths you can go by
Don’t take the wrong one
Now’s the time to change
The road you’re on

Does it makes you wonder?

Aw, uh, oh

His voice is calling; and His word shows
In case you don’t know
Jesus died so He could save you

Dear lady, can you hear the wind blow?
And did you know
Your stairway leads to a decision?

(Solo)
And as we wind on down the road
Our shadows taller than our soul
There stands a Saviour we can know
He is “The Light” and wants to show
That there are streets all paved with gold
And if you listen very hard
The truth will come to you at last
That Christ’s The Way, The Truth, The Life
He is The Rock, The Lord of Hosts
And she’s climbing a stairway
To ponder…

Stairway To Heaven

by Led Zeppelin

There’s a lady who’s sure
All that glitters is gold
And she’s buying a stairway to heaven

When she gets there she knows
If the stores are all closed
With a word she can get what she came for

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
And she’s buying a stairway to heaven

There’s a sign on the wall
But she wants to be sure
‘Cause you know sometimes words have
Two meanings

In a tree by the brook
There’s a songbird who sings
Sometimes all of our thoughts are
Misgiven

Ooh, it makes me wonder

Ooh, it makes me wonder

There’s a feeling I get
When I look to the west
And my spirit is crying
For leaving

In my thoughts I have seen
Rings of smoke through the trees
And the voices of those
Who stand looking

Ooh, it makes me wonder

Ooh, it really makes me wonder

And it’s whispered that soon
If we all call the tune
Then the piper will lead us to reason

And a new day will dawn
For those who stand long
And the forests will
Echo with laughter

Oh, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, ooh, whoa, oh

If there’s a bustle in your hedgerow
Don’t be alarmed now
It’s just a spring clean
For the May queen

Yes, there are two paths you can go by
But in the long run
There’s still time to change
The road you’re on

And it makes me wonder

Aw, uh, oh

Your head is humming and it won’t go
In case you don’t know
The piper’s calling you to join him

Dear lady, can you hear the wind blow?
And did you know
Your stairway lies on the whispering wind?

(Solo)

And as we wind on down the road
Our shadows taller than our soul
There walks a lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to show
How everything still turns to gold
And if you listen very hard
The truth will come to you at last
When all are one and one is all
To be a rock and not to roll

And she’s buying a stairway
To heaven…

  1. I want to live there…lol…be encouraged!

  2. Caddo Veil says:

    Oh Theresa, you are Brilliant!!! I’ve thoroughly enjoyed this–and I’m glad I spent the end of my “catch up time” here at your blog. I feel refreshed and revitalized, ready to go! Bless your dear heart, Sister–I love you, sis Caddo

    • There have been times when I have been a little worried that it might come across as being somewhat irreverent, but I do enjoy singing it.

      Thank you so much, sis Caddo. You have encouraged me greatly.

      Love,
      Theresa

    Oh Theresa . ..what you have done with these songs is so so wonderful and ministering! I came out of having to listen to rock music all the time, to knowing that He didn’t want me to . ..that it wasn’t good for me. Here you take the songs and replace the words with ones we can sing! 🙂 Love it! God bless you, wonderful woman of the Word! love and prayers!

    • Oh Deb, I am so glad you liked them! I understand what you mean about the rock music, too. I still listen to it as well as other forms of secular music, but am careful to turn the station, fast forward the tape, etc when I hear objectionable lyrics. I even went a few years where I almost completely refrained from listening to most forms of secular music. I admire your commitment and the heartfelt convictions behind your decision.

      Love,
      Theresa

    I love your lines Theresa — I am pondering! 🙂

    My kiddos and I sometimes change the lyrics too of the songs. It usually happens when the song is so popular that it’s played all over thus we have to edit the words which are not good for the kids, and adults too. Sometimes we do it for fun and what was enjoyed since they were babies are still enjoyed now 🙂

  5. That’s great! It’s like an alter call song. Thank you for pointing me over here.
