The Word (a composition)

Been almost a year since I wrote anything! Here's something I've been writing over the past few days, its based somewhat on John 1. Imagine reading the introduction to the book, and getting all excited over it!



If you like, you can download the mp3 as well, which is in much higher quality.

Lyrics - completed!

Verse
Jesus Christ, ruler of creation
You
are the light
shining in the darkness you're the

Lamb of God, author of salvation
You
are the life
your glory goes before us you are Lord

Pre-chorus
And on the earth you showed the way
And on the cross you died for me
And from the grave you rose again

Chorus
In the darkness, your light is shinning through
In the deepest, your love is there
In your glory, you are Emmanuel
In your power, you are the Word

Bridge
Worthy the Lamb who was slain
Worthy the Lamb who was slain
You took my guilt and my shame
Worthy the Lamb who was slain

kenny said...

i used anvil studio for the drum track..

yeah i need a vocalist.. maybe you could drop me a mail and i'll send u an instrumental version of the song to try out? you can record with a computer mic

Hey K, that was amazing! Well despite it did sounded like an anime soundtrack(maybe it's the music station you've been listening to) no offense. But it IS kind of cool. And when I imagine the worship environment, I can't stop thinking about Indonesia.

Well, maybe when the lyrics are up and also vocals included, it'll sound different. I have the feeling that this could make it out into the streets(and churches).

Hope to get an update on this one.
Peace, all the way from Penang xD

Oh yea, about the intro. This is my opinion, try not to be so melodious. Try to make the vocals do the melody and the rest do alto or tenor. Somewhat like a simple and solid riff. Sort of like a signature riff to the song, when people hears the intro, they'll do it's this song. So yeah, simple and solid.
