Remain in Me - new song based on John 15

At my local church we are doing a series on the fruits of the Spirit, but we started by studying John 15 - this song was born from that place.

“Remain in me and I in you 
And we'll do the things I said we'd do 
Don't give yourselves to things that pass 
But bear the fruit, the fruit that lasts

Remain in me and I in you 
If you know me then you'll bear much fruit
Don't put your trust in things that pass 
But bear the fruit, the fruit that lasts”

Chorus
Rooted in God, Our God is love
Father, The Spirit, The Son 
Rooted in God, Our God is love
We are in Him, in Him We are one

V2
“Remain in me and I in you 
Let my words go deep, to heal, renew 
Don't build a life on words that pass 
But hear the truth, the truth that lasts
Remain in me and I in you 
And I’ll chop the deadwood, baggage loose 
Don't hold onto a broken past 
But bear the fruit, the fruit that lasts” 

Mid 8
In Your love, the greatest love of all 
The Father's love In which we are secure 
Greater love, has not been shown 
He died so we could live 
In You we find ourselves at home 
In You our Friend, our God, our King

Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, Self-control

Thanks for sharing that Andrew. It's a nice song with an easy listening pop feel.

Hi Andrew. 

Really like the rhythms in the song, and the piano at the end - I left it running while I was changing some strings, and I think that last bit of piano could have run into something else.

One tiny thing - the way the rhyme "pass" and "lasts" on the verse, you need to decide whether you pronounce things the correct, northern way, or the southern way! You say "pass" the southern way, but "lasts" the northern way, and it means they don't rhyme the same. Learn to sing in a northern accent! lol.

Ha! Yes indeed my Aceraccent is pretty mixed up. Born in Norfolk to an American Dad, moved to, and got married in Bedford and been living in Birmingham for 15 years. My girls have Brummy accents.

Will work on my Identity Crisis before I record it properly

Thank you both for your comments,

Yes I like the piano at the end too, our family piano is becoming more honky tonk by the day. It is also nearly a semitone flat, so end up shifting the pitch up post recording
