You are … final files, including backing track

Hi all.

Finished working on the writing of my paraphrase of Psalm 46:

God is my refuge and strength; an ever-present help in times of trouble

Have taken a while on this, for as shared previously, these have been words that I have found so affirming in this stage of the journey.  An earlier post unpacks the background to the writing.  Updated lyrics below, including a totally-revised third verse – not a bridge.  Much happier with this, musically.  You don’t want much musical ‘activity’ while singing Be still and know I’m God.

 

Not sure if or how I’ll use this song.  That’s not the point.  God spoke to me one Tuesday morning through these time-treasured words … and I sought to do something about it.  David

You are

God, you are my strength
You’re my refuge, God
Lord when troubles rise;
my help always
God, you are my strength
You’re my refuge, Lord
My strong fortress, my rock
all my days.

We won’t be afraid
though the earth will shake
though the mountains tumble and fall
We won’t be afraid
though the earth will shake
We will praise you as Lord of all

“So be still and know I’m God
So be still and know I’m God
So be still and know I’m God,
that I am God!”

Alleluia, alleluia
Alleluia, alleluia
Alleluia, you are God
God, you are our strength
God, you are our life
You are hope
You are love
You are God.
