trinity of love … with vocals

Hi

Dale and I have done a new vocal track and a revised backing track for Trinity of Love.   Lyrics were blogged yesterday and also on my Together to Celebrate website.

 

Grace & peace,

David

Hi!

Thought I’d share a really-short sung-response that suits this Sunday well. It’s Trinity Sunday. Last year I wrote Trinity of love for our evening service, for use during our prayer of thanksgiving and intercession.  I think it worked well.  There’s a link to a very rough demo backing track (piano line in place of vocal) and simple leadsheet. I’d love to write more material in a minor key.  Happy with how it turns out with this one. Feel free to give it a go.  Works well with just a guitar or keyboard … or simply acapella.

 

Shalom,

David

Trinity of love
come to us
Father, Spirit, Son

Father, we adore you plus

A bit late posting this one, with Trinity Sunday having come and gone yesterday.

Anyhow … in selecting music for yesterday, I was reflecting on appropriate songs to celebrate God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit — Creator, Redeemer, Sustainer.  For sure, I could have used the old 1970s staple: Father we adore you.  Trouble was, it seemed so “same old, same old”.

Then, the Spirit hit me.  I envisaged it with a new “Jack Johnson” feel – with the emphasis on the off-beat of the bar, and a middle-section included.  Still with the option of most of it being sung as a 2 or 2 part round.

And so the song came out as what I’ve dubbed: Father, we adore you +
I used it at two of our services at Oxley yesterday.  It was well-received, so will do it again some time. Maybe even this time next year!

Here it is:

Father we adore you
Lay our lives before you
How we love you

Jesus …

Spirit …

Bridge:
We praise you, Lord
God – three, yet one
We praise you Father, Spirit, Son
We praise you, Lord
For us, you’ve come
Come bless us:  Father, Spirit, Son


Father we adore you
Lay our lives before you
How we love you

Jesus …

Spirit …
