all of my days

Ok, here’s my disclaimer. I recorded it in my garage with a microphone, guitar, and a laptop. I recorded the guitar and vocals separately and, for some reason, can’t get the timing of the two tracks to line up properly. It’s annoying the heck out of me, but I’m about to pull my hair out trying to fix it, so whatever, you’ll just have to imagine perfect timing. While you’re at it, imagine some amazing toms pounding in the background, a heavy bass synth, and a girl who can wale on the alto part. Then imagine Rick Rueben has produced it, there are nine other great songs surrounding it, and that the cover art has been designed by Dan Mumford who’s decided to rip off Pink Floyd and stage a photo with a big pink blow up version of me floating over the Battersea Power Station.

Now how does it sound? Btw, you'll probably want to pause the music to the right before you press play below. Then again, maybe not...

    I know a Spirit that lives in my soul
    I know a God who’s wherever I go
    I know a Saviour whose blood covers me

    I know a fount that makes dirt white as snow
    I know forgiveness like I’ve never known
    I know redemption that changes my heart and my soul

    And I know a faithfulness that never ends
    A God so devoted he loved me while still in my sin

    I know a promise to never let go
    No matter the storms or the trials or how hard the wind blows
    I’m deep in His hold

    And I’ll hold to these things no matter what may
    I’ll hold to these things for all of my days
    Hold to the promise that one day my soul He will raise

    And I’ll love the One who first came to me
    And offered His life so that I might go free!

    All of my days
    I’ll sing your praise
    My hands I will raise
    For I am amazed
    The extent of your grace
    Causes me to embrace
    And sing out your praise
    All of my days

    I know a healer whose breath gives me life
    Who binds up my wounds and gives sight to the blind
    Whose death changes hearts and whose life changes minds

    And I serve a God with a purpose for me
    A plan that I might prosper and I might be free
    So I stand and believe

    Believe in the One who breathed life into me
    Life not just here on this earth but eternally

    couple of things. . . do you use a mac? If so. . . how do you get the music on your blog? as mine doesn't play it, so I haven't been able to check out the song. Also, if you use a mac, (garage band) there are tones of sweet tricks in there to beef up a song once your vocals are in. I do very well at the beefing, but have yet to record vocals in a way that I feel well about sending out to the world. Most of this is based on vocal skill, but some is time and energy to make it happen. Anyways, any thoughts on how to hear the song?

    2. Speaking of vocalists, you can now commence being jealous, because we just added the best female singer I have come across to our worship team. Harmony= good, melody=good, stage presence=good. How this girl has slipped through the cracks I do not know. It is whole new ballgame singing with someone you don't want to turn down at all.

    c. Oh great fantasy guru. . . Just wanted to point out that my team is 2-0 in spite of not picking a back in the first round. Even adding to this noise is the fact that I had Tom Brady on my team and was at a place last week, when I thought all was lost. That being said, I have another team w/ LT being the top pick. and that team is 1-1. So we'll see how it pans out. How did Larry Johnson treat you?

    Ok, hmmm.

    I really like it. a lot.

    btw, I know I had a lot of grammar problems in my last post but you dropped me pretty far in your blogs category. :)

    Holy crap!!! You go, boy! I really liked it. You've come a long way from the Hanging of the Green. :-)
