Dear Libby,

The day I first heard the song “Don’t Cry for Me” I was deeply blessed by the heartfelt words to which you had written, and was even more blessed when I read the blog on your MySpace page as to how the song came about.  On the radio that day they said we could contact you for a copy of the song and being so touched by it I had to get a copy of my own.  Little did I know of the blessings that both God and you had in store for me!   Being able to meet the person who wrote this song turned out to be an even a greater honor and humble blessing.  For it is evident you are truly a devoted Christian who has a heart of Love for God, and for the people you meet.

I have since watched you grow and write many new songs, and I have been deeply blessed by each and every one.  I share my excitement and blessings with many others each time you post a new song.  Many of my favorites are “He Died for Me”, “I Surrender to You”, “Watching Over You”, “Be a Light in the Darkness”, “You Are My Everything”, “I Win Either Way”.  But as you know, my most precious and favorite song now is the one you wrote for me and surprised me with a few weeks ago. Little did I know that in sharing my story with you about losing my wife to ovarian cancer, that you would be given words for the song you wrote for me, "Lift Me Up In Your Sheltering Arms".  I just want you to know that that song has deeply blessed and touched the very core of my heart in the love my wife and I shared, and the strength of Our Heavenly Father who’s Love and Peace gave me all that I needed to shelter this storm and carry on in the Love and blessings of life we once shared.  Libby, I knew from the day I met you that God had truly placed an anointed blessing upon you.  It is clear that you are meant to share God's love through the blessings that are received by others in hearing your songs - they have certainly touched me!  God has given you a blessing and talent to bring not only bring peace and comfort from your songs, (as you did in the song you wrote for me), but also in songs of joy, such as the wedding song, or the song that so tells us of the love that God gave us and continues to give us, through the death of his son on the cross.  Your song "He Died for Me" captures that message beautifully!      

May God's love and grace continue to bless you and fill your heart with many more heartfelt words as you continue to bless us all with more songs.  I’m every so honored, grateful, and blessed not only by the gift of the song you wrote for me, but in the new Christian friend that God has given me.  Please feel free to share this with others, for as you know I’ll be telling others about your music ministry. 

God Bless Libby,

Dear Libby,

I can't begin to tell you what a blessing your songs have been to me. When Steve told me about the song      "Don't Cry For Me " I had just lost my mother who was 98 and had 10 children. I could not get beyond the hole she left in my heart even though I knew she was with Jesus. Then I heard your song and it was as though my Mom was speaking to me and then the peace came because of the words in your song it made me see she was still in my heart and I in hers. God is good and I believe this all happen for a reason and I am greatful He put you in my life. I had cancer 20 years ago and survived cancer but have some side affects and again another one of your songs " I Win Either Way" made me look at my journey in a different way and once again the peace came. I truly believe God is using you to help His children because you have a great way of expressing what we feel and you help us to pick ourselves up and keep working for the Lord. " Share The Love" another great one for the way family's are falling apart and too busy doing there own things that they don't have time for family. I guess they don't understand how soon something could happen to us and then it's too late you don't get a second chance. Thank you for writing this and I pray many will hear it and it will make a difference while they can.  I am going to make a donation soon for I am wearing my CD out because I play it every night when I go to sleep and my sleep is peaceful because of God and you. I love all your songs and I like the "Rain On Me" song - it makes me feel as though God has just showering me with lots of love. Well I'd better quit before I have a book going and I do believe I could write one on your songs alone but you are a very sweet lady and I thank you so much. Keep them coming Libby and we thank you always, Bless you Libby .

Libby Allen's songs reach deep down to that God shaped space in our hearts and fill our spirits with the joy and love we have for our Creator and Lord.  Her inspired words and music touch our very being and assure us that the love of our God is greater than we can ever know until we see him face to face.  She seems to be sharing secrets of him and his beautiful creation and creatures known only in moments of deepest worship and adoration.  She is gifted with both a knowledge of his great grace and mercy and his gift to all of us of salvation and joy and she finds ways to share and express the awe we can feel in a deeper relationship with him.  The songs always lift my spirit and make me want to soar through the sky and meet him face to face.

I just wanted to thank you for writing such a wonderful song about me.  "He's Gotta Love Dogs," was the best Christmas present I have ever received and I hope that the tears that I shed the first time I heard it made you realize just how special it was to me.  I am so happy that I was able to inspire you to share such a personal message of mine with the world.  I am tickled that I have become a small celebrity in your music world ("the Dog Song girl").  I can only hope that someone who has experienced the pain of a failed relationship will hear my song and realize that there is hope for a better future.  You just have to make a list, check it twice, and be sure that it includes a love for dogs (or at least on my list it does) :)



Hello Libby,

My Mother passed away four weeks ago tomorrow.  I find comfort in the scriptures and in songs.  Words from songs come  to me in the night.  Last night I was awaken with the words"Don't Cry For Me”. When I got up this morning I looked on youtube.  I have never heard your song, never knew there was a song by that name.  I played it and found such comfort in the words.  It was Mama and God speaking to me in the night leading me to your song!!!

I have played it over and over today. Awhile ago I went to your site and read the story behind the song "Don't Cry For Me".  Interesting that Fred had lost a leg, My Mom had to have both her legs removed due to diabetes.  My Mom was in the nursing home.  On Easter Sunday she had to be taken to the hospital with a severe UTI, which became septic.  She was in and out of it for several days.  One day during my visit she suddenly woke up and called me to her side and in a excited voice said'Guess where I'm going"...I said where are you going mama, and she said "To Heaven"...She closed her eyes and never said another word during my visit.  Two days after Mother's Day she went to heaven, all of our family was there as she took her last breath here and her first in Heaven...

One of my favorite songs was played at her service "If you could see me now" by Don Meon.  I know she wouldn't come back if she could...I find such comfort in that song.  Now, I have your beautiful song to listen to as well.  She wouldn't want me to cry for her...      I shared "Don't Cry For Me" with my friends on facebook.

Thank You for the beautiful message in song.

Hope you have a blessed day.

Just wanted to thank you for your song.

 I lost, Shorty, my 15 year old tabby last month.

Shorty was closer to me for longer than anyone in my whole life. I feel bad saying that but it is true.

Shorty was a large male cat with multitoed paws. His time was almost up long ago when I brought him home from the shelter. He was always there to greet me on the worst day or the best day.

And I never needed an alarm clock because he knew when to wake me up...for his breakfast.

As big as he was( 24-28 lbs.) he was gentle to his three sister cats. He was a jolly old soul who made sure he sat next to me when I was on the computer. He gave no sign that his time was coming. One day he just started breathing slowly and I prayed hard for the Lord to reach out to him. And suddenly he was called home. I lost my first wife to suicide but somehow I came through that. Losing Shorty is so much harder. It might be God's way of saying that to find him again I have to get to Rainbow Bridge myself.

Anyway, I cry when I listen to your song. But my tears are not of sadness but of hope that he is in Rainbow Bridge and someday I will cross that bridge with him.


You can post this on your site.

The most beautiful  I've heard. So touching when you have lost a husband.

I write Gospel songs, when my husband passed away, I wrote a song for him.

Yours is better.

God Bless you, keep on writing.

Hi Libby, I am writing you again to tell you that I truly enjoy listening to your songs.  I don't like to iron that much, so I had quite a big this morning.  I went to your web site and listened to your songs.  They put me in a different mood and before I knew it, I had the ironing finished!!  Love your messages in the songs.  You are a beautiful Christian woman.  Hope to buy one of your CD's in the near future.  May God bless you for your witness.


Also, you may use my letter in your commentary link.  Also, thanks for getting back to me about the last line in your song, The Green Side of the Grass.  I LOVE that song.  It is special to me. 



The majority of comments that I receive are posted directly onto my YouTube Channel, and can be viewed under “comments” for each individual song.  You can visit my YouTube Channel by going directly to www.youtube.com

God puts these messages for my songs into my heart to share with you, so from my heart to yours, I hope you will be blessed by the words and music of each and every song that I write.  Thank you for visiting my songsite and please check back periodically....I’m always adding new songs and videos!   More MP3 downloads are coming soon -  for albums!

Hello, my name is Dana. I just wanted to write to you after I found your website and found a chance to do so. Your song "Don't cry for me" has become very dear to me and i found a lot of comfort in the lyrics and music of this song. My very close friend passed away unexpectedly only a little over than 9 months ago and almost right after it happened, I found this song and have listened to it ever since. With no doubt it has been one of the hardest years of my life, but God has been using His Word and other people to send comfort. This song especially touched my heart because I could feel that it came from someone who lived through similar times and who has found comfort in God just as I have been doing. I could feel it even before I read your story. Also, just recently I found another song called "I'm gonna be with you once more" and it also gave me much comfort. These songs give so much hope and by listening to them it sometimes feels as if it is my friend who says all these words and for a moment I could closer feel her presence. Thank you for creating and sharing these songs! May God richly bless you!


Sincerely, DanaI

   Dear Libby,  I have been saying "I'm Still On Thre Green Side Of The Grass" since July 10, 2000 when I had 3+ Breast Cancer & a cemo burn in Nov. (last treatment). I PTL that I'm still here. I tell everyone I'm on God's time. My mother had the same kind of cancer, same place & it took her in 1989.  Come the Spring of 2001 I would walk out on the grass instand of the sidewalk & feel how soft the grass was under my feet & what a pretty green; look up to the clouds & say a pray of thanksgiving.  It was wonderful when an old HS classmate (over 50 yrs.) sent me a E-mail of your song last week.  It fits me to a "T".  God's Love & Saving Grace, "It's Real, It's Real, It's Realy Real" is another thing I say. I will be 70 come Oct. & God isn't done with me yet; I also run on a Pacemaker since March of 2007.  I find myself saying to others, "None of us are going to get out of here alive; we all are going to die of something. We all will go one of two places; I know where I'm going - How About You ?"          My name is :  Ruthie Tiesma,  I live in Portage, MI          God Bless You         6/23/12

Loved the song it is so apropos!!!!!! also very well sung as well as the accompaniment. Thank you; OOOO (O in salutation means a hug)



Dear Libby,

A friend sent me the aging song and although it started out as many do, a humorous look at aging, it turned into something so much more.  It is not funny (well, it is, but...) but rather I found it to be very inspirational.  I am 65 and dealing with severe arthritis in the back, spinal stenosis, several other things, and although I generally am grateful for the abilities I DO have rather than the ones I am losing (mobility), some days it gets me down.  I shall try to remember your song and smile for I am on the right side of the sod and God still has work for me before I sleep.

Thank you,




I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed your song!  I believe in having my glass half full, so this inspired me to keep on believing! 

At 61 today, I would NOT go back in time, rather I look forward to what is ahead!  This is a wonderful time of life!

Thank you for your talent and inspiration!

I had to write to say what a wonderful song that was.  I burst out laughing which took 10 years off my face.  I've sent it to everyone I know or have even thought about knowing.  It's just wonderful!!


Thank you,





Thank you for writing this song. I laughed so hard until I cried.  My uncle sent it to me and I have sent it to all my friends who are over 50.  You got it all right. Just learned that I had arthritis at 55 so when I heard your song I felt that I was not alone. Thank you, Thank you, for sharing your talent.

God Bless you,
