Today's rambling is an abbreviated one.
Well, frankly, I've been knee-deep—or, I suppose more appropriately stated, microphone-deep—in recording the complete, self-narrated audiobook version of my book Fit Soul.
And, in the wee hours of the morning when the rest of the family is asleep, I've been working on recording my first album.
So, as a result, I've had to buckle down quite a bit the past few weeks and do a tad less deep work on my usual article writing. However, I thought it would be fun to share with you the lyrics from one of the original songs that will appear on this album I've been working on.
My desire for this particular song was to write a mildly epic, anthem-like praise and worship song that a choir or crowd could belt out at the top of their lungs to give glory to the Almighty Creator.
The song is titled “You Are God Eternal.” The full lyrics appear below, along with my recording of the song itself. “You Are God Eternal” wraps up worship of the entire Holy Trinity into three verses, with the first verse worshiping God, the second worshiping Jesus, and the third worshiping the Holy Spirit.
Finally, you can of course feel free to use this song in your own church or worship services if you'd like. I'd be honored, actually, as that is my vision and intention for this song. In other words, if you know a praise and worship leader, musician, church, or anyone else who would like to use this song for worship, then, by all means, proceed! If helpful, the tablature appears here.
You Are God Eternal
You are God eternal, holy Yahweh, El Elyon and Adonai
Rock of all the ages, from beginning, Creator of the earth and sky
Praise to the great I Am, amen, amen, amen
You are Son eternal, from beginning, Prince Of Peace, Emmanuel
Faithful and true witness, son of Mary, anointed one of Israel
Hosanna to the lamb, amen, amen, amen
You are Holy Spirit, Dove descending, blessed and anointing fire
Joy of the Almighty, intercessor, presence of our God most high
Divine, inspiring breath, amen, amen, amen
Amen, amen, amen, amen, amen, amen
I'm curious to hear your thoughts and feedback on this song. Music is a total side hobby and passion project for me, but I enjoy singing and songwriting immensely and could see myself doing more of it in the future. I hope that hearing a bit of my music blesses and encourages you, and you can, of course, feel free to share wherever you would like.
By the way, my studio editing collaborator on this project was the talented and wonderful Tracy Towns, who also collaborated with me on a cover song I recorded with my children and wife called “The Blessing,” which I featured on Instagram a few months ago (you can listen to it here), and who is also working with me on a full ten-song set we'll have ready by the end of this year.
In the meantime, leave any comments below, and definitely also ping me there in the comments section or via my contact form here on the website if you can help get this song out to churches, musicians, and worship leaders. There would be nothing greater for this song than for it to be belted out by hundreds of thousands of people worshiping God on a Sunday morning, and that vision is my prayer!
