Nice voice! Nice accompaniment. I personally could hear the lyrics in the choruses doubled up -
"for you have Always been my strength,
Lord let me hide myself in You."
2X's and the one with "You have heard my promises, oh Lord"
just to balance it out.
I like the combining of the two choruses at the end. Doubling the length of that one would also improve on the balance of the lyrics. I can hear this a little more up tempo and the intensity in the middle being a little more fervent building up to the Hallelujah's and then calming down again at the end.
Thanks for the comments. When we play it live, there is a building guitar solo that lasts 8 bars or longer prior to the "I will sing..." that vocal section is repeated twice back into another guitar solo with add-lib vocals (no set length) then another run of the "I will sing.." then to the outro.
Cool. Would love to hear a recording of the live version sometime.
I like the sound of this song,
I couldn't open the lyrics file to be able give any critique on them,but at first listen it has an improvised feel to it as though they just came to you as you were playing the song, kind of impromptu spirit lead. I really like it.
Thanks. Lyrics are pretty much Psalm 61 with a few minor changes to make it more singable. I agree with the feel. I like to keep a bit of looseness to let the emotion of the song come out.
Hear my cry, O God, listen to my prayer;
from the ends of the earth I call to you
when my heart is faint. Please be my strength
Lord let me hide myself in You
for you have Always been my strength,
Lord let me hide myself in You.
Let me live in Your presence Oh God
Let me hide under Your wing
You have heard my promises Lord,
You have given me Your name
You have heard my promises Oh Lord,
You have given me Your name.
