"I give my life to You" - SOUNDCLOUD

Surrounded by Glory
Sent from above
In the Holy of Holies
Iím lost in Your love

Heavenly fire
Glows deep inside me
A burning desire
To lay at Your feet

Lord I give my life to You
I dedicate my heart to You
I give You everything I have
Lord I give my life to You
Itís the least that I can do
I give You all that I am
I give my life to YouÖ..I give my life to You

Iím a treasure out of darkness
Found by Your light
A diamond thatís priceless
Shining bright

Lord I give my life to You
I dedicate my heart to You
I give You everything I have
Lord I give my life to You
Itís the least that I can do
I give You all that I amÖ..I give my life to YouÖ..

Lord I give my life to You
I dedicate my heart to You
I give You everything I have
Lord I give my life to You
Itís the least that I can do
I give You all that I am

Lord I give my life to You
I dedicate my heart to You
I give You everything I have

I think you should give your vox more air/atmosphere. Think Phil Collins "In the air tonight"

Really solid arrangement, Steve. Builds nicely. Very powerful chorus. Love the use of pads, so cool. This is the kind of a song that would do well in Christian churches and concerts everywhere. Congregations love the repetition of lyrics and your chorus is emotional and strong and bang on. The vocal is so good. Maybe some harmony but not necessary. You need to get this out there now. One of the best Christian songs to come along in some time. Props to you.

I've listened to Awesome God , Hillsong, many times. It;s just the chorus and they sing it over and over. Your chorus is right up there with it. I can see people singing your chorus non stop for 10 minutes. You kept the verses simple, which is so important. The people want to get to the part that makes them feel close to God, This song is exactly what they want to hear and sing. Thank you for this song.Wow, wow, wow,

A lot of soul and solid production in this one, Steve. Nice job, you can hear it comes from the heart.

Steve,

A great write--love the contrasting vibe of the vs/ch. I felt like your were going to fade the ending--not that you should, but it had that feeling for me with the chorus just diving into a long fade. Either way I think is fine.

Thanks for the encouragement as this is a song that will only see itís true fulfillment if people, church goers or not, sing along with the songÖ

I got the ultimate compliment on another Forum where the poster said they played along with my song first with piano and then guitarÖ

Yeah what Vsteve said...nice and simple and catchy ...and like say Redman's Bless The Lord, ..10,000 Reasons ...it just wants to be sung

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oEHi_w7EzYI&ab_channel=ADHYAKSA I absolutely love this and we play it at our church as well.....nowhere near as good as this but then, who has a better version?

One question in picky English category

Is it your burning desire you want to lay down at God's feet, or do you want to LIE down at his feet?


If writing ever becomes work I think I'm going to have to stop

Funny, I've NEVER faded one of my songs...Since this is congregational singing type song (Not always easy for me to be disciplined enough to write), I guess i should consider a "Major" fade version...Problem is I would need to totally re-cut it...But if I ever do, you bring up a solid idea I should consider for this Genre...Thanks
