Some melodies in need of lyrics, and a score needing feedback

Hi there,

It's been a while that I joined this group but I haven't posted or introduced myself here so far.  I am from Germany and I started using Musescore and composing about 3 years ago. I work as a software developer but music has
become very essential in my life durng the past 4 or 5 years. I also take classical voice lessons.  Practicing has given me a lot of inspiration for finding melodies as I often improvise/vocalise over a drone for warm-up.
  
To get an impression what I've composed so far, you can find several pieces published via my profile https://musescore.com/user/8752261  -  mostly in various sets. Last year, I took part in a competition here on the website, the Musescore Composition Competition 2018. One of the sets contain my contributions to this contest, others are melodies to lyrics of existing traditional songs, or accompaniments I made for one or the other vocal piece I wanted to learn.

I've uploaded one first score where I tried for the first time to write lyrics to existing melodies of my own,
and since English is not my mother tongue, I'd appreciate your feedback.  
This belongs to a project on which I cooperate with another Musescore user, so I have just added it to this group, I haven't published it yet. 
This score can be found here:
From Now On / Take My Hand  https://musescore.com/user/8752261/scores/5495677/s/9ubp82

For two other scores, I haven't yet got any idea what lyrics could fit, though the melodies somehow sound like these could be songs.
They sound like rounds to me, one isn't exactly a round because I used woodwinds in different registers to replace the choir aaahs and ooohs which I don't like, and I had to adjust the melodies a bit to fit the instruments' range better.
For one of them, I have a work title "As Night is Falling" because it sounded like a night song to me - maybe it provides some inspiration, but you could well suggest another title in case you found lyrics to which it wouldn't fit. It might even be some
bible verse, psalm or prayer line.

There are some more but these still need a bit of preparation.

I would be happy to have inspired one or some of you to write text for these pieces, and I'm very curious what you come up with.

Musecorps Drum Corps Recording #1

Link to the Full Score: https://musescore.com/themtcrew/scores/5217400

Hello! Mark and I have finalized the brass parts for the ballad of our original show, 2 + 2 = 5. The ballad we've chosen is The Hymn of Acxiom by Vienna Teng, as we believe it fits the theme of the show - George Orwell's "1984" - perfectly.

If you are unfamiliar with the project, here is a quick summary:
Mark and I plan to have as many of you submit recordings of yourselves playing through the show as we can. We will then compile the recordings into one large file, and place it over virtual drill that Mark is writing, to create a virtual drum corps of sorts. If you'd like to record, here's all the info you'll need!

1.) Parts
You can play through as many parts as you'd like. In fact, we would much appreciate it if you did! (For example, if you play the trumpet, it will be better for the end result if you record and submit all three trumpet parts, rather than just doing one) Of course, you don't have to do this! Mark and I will be listening through each recording of the trumpet soloist's part, and picking the one we think would best benefit the overall recording.
2.) Recordings
We would prefer if you submit one large (3-ish minute) recording, but if you find it difficult to play through the part(s) in one sitting, please refer to the recording guide below!
Here is the link to all the parts: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1CTplR1RBHZX2YCJZ80M35VF20sjaPI9u?usp=sharing
3.) Recording Guide
Recording One: Beginning to Letter D
Recording Two: Letter D to Letter F (Trumpets, include two measure pick-up)
Recording Three: Letter F to Letter I
Recording Four: Letter I to the end

Again, we'd much prefer your recording be from the beginning to the end, to simplify our own work, but we decided to include this in case some need the breaks in between. Trumpets obviously don't need a recording one/four, as they don't play at these points. Please play the part at the exact tempo that's listed. This can easily be done by playing along with the recording (preferably while wearing a headset!).
4.) Submitting
If you have recorded the entirety of the ballad at once, submit an MP3/MP4 file with this name as the format:
Username_PartName_Full
If you used the segmented guide above, use this format:
Username_PartName_RecordingNumber

ex. TheMTCrew_Trombone1_Rec1
OR
markmacri_Mellophone1_Full

Hello, Friends! Who are you?

I didn't think to go deep into the subject of bass guitar, although I have an acoustic instrument for home music.

But there were pieces, where the bass is revealed unexpectedly full and beautiful — that's why I decided that it is necessary to share.
However, there was no group where such scores were in demand.
So this group was created.

And then there were musical pieces, where a variety of instruments have a solo in the bass register. And the group slowly began to be filled with content. Yet the catalog is very modest. But it's not evening yet...
