Song Story: MUSIC & LYRICS
I wrote verses 1 and 4 back in 2007 after the ALIVE music festival (along with
"I CHOOSE YOUR CHOICE"). This was also the melody in my head as I recorded my ideas.
However, although I thought about those verses -- and quoted them at myself a lot -- for 1-1/2 years, I never did anything with them. Then one day I was praying "God, these words are good, but the melody is so DORKY."
A short time later I sat at the piano "doodling," came up with some interesting progressions, and then suddenly the words of this song's chorus came to mind and the song came alive! I'm still thanking God... this could be the theme song for any who want to humbly serve Him -as Jesus said!
Dedicated to our LORD, 28 October 2008.... Verse 1 = 3rd Song Gift from God.
I can do nothing without Christ. I fail at ev'rything I do.
My hope, my dreams, my works just fade:I need You, Lord-- How I need You! [repeat]
You are the Author of my dreams. (of my dreams)
You are the Giver of my hopes. (of my hopes)
You are the Power of my work (nothing without You)
You're All I need to .. succeed! .....
Lord, guard my heart and guard my mind,
and guard my mouth---help me to speak
just words that reflect what You’d say:
I need You— Psalm One-Four-One: Three [Psalm 141: 3... repeat; then CHORUS]
