You Are the One

My daughter, Elena, helped me finish a song that we called 'Son of the Living God' back in 2011.  She was eight.  I was stuck on the second verse and we had been studying John 3:16-17. Which states:
16 “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.

I decided to renamed it 'You Are the One'.  Here are the lyrics.  I hope to record it soon, at least a demo.....

You Are the One
Verse 1:
You are the One,
There is no other,
Where else can we go?
Your words are truth,
Your words are power
Lead to eternal life…..

Chorus:
Jesus, Messiah, relentless in Your love.
Redeemer, Deliverer, You are the Christ,
The Son of the Living God,
Son of the Living God.

Verse 2:
And so You came, not to condemn us
But to show us the Father’s heart.
A heart of love, mercy and grace
Pursuing at all cost!

Bridge:
You have the words of life
                               (Where else can we go?)
You have the words of life
                               (Where else can we go?) 
You have the words of life
                               (Show us the Father’s heart)

Strange and Wonderful


So, a little bit about this song.....Strange and Wonderful... It was basically written by Mac Powell, one of the greatest songwriters in our generation.  He and I became friends in Georgia in the early 90s. 

     He came over to the house one day and said. "I wrote you a song yesterday."  "What do ya mean, Mac?" 

    "Well. I just asked the Lord to help me write you a song and here is what He gave me." 

     I was amazed, but (being the seasoned writer myself), I thought a few words needed to be changed...(yeah like who else in their right mind would have ever changed a Mac Powell song?)..but he said, “We will just use your changes.”  He gave me half credit for the song.....but it was basically his creation. 

    I love the song.  It is my signature song.  I always feel God's presence when I sing it.  It is a crowd favorite.   Please, check it out on the Indieheaven Fan Favs....here:    

I put it up on the Fan Favs today and it is sitting at #10 today.  Your vote of 5 stars will be a great help!  Thanks!

You Came Along

     Thank you to all of you who have been voting for 'You Came Along'. I am very excited to be on the Top 20 on IH! I hope that you find encouragement from listening to it. The song is a little glimpse into a young man's life who finally understands how God loves him. God is for us and not against us.....and showed us by sending Jesus. Thanks again for the votes!
