I believe with all my heart
#1
I "Wrote" this at the keyboard and this is just how it came to me... 

I fought the melody of the first verse and it landed somewhere in between two pop piano players with a bit of Keith Green in the piano ideas. 

I think from the on set it's a little " dated "  or maybe I should say retro  I think that could be fixed but is a rewrite  in order ? 

I chose the words as I played at the keyboard and they are contemplative and affirming my beliefs in Christ , but could this be reworked  and updated both lyrically and musically ? 

The fist line has some alliteration problems that are horrible for recording SSSSSSSSSS  too many S's. Smile

And maybe there is a way to allude to the framework laid out in this song with out being so theological? These words mean a lot to me , but is there a way to convey them to someone not so "churched?"  

Attached my chord chart if you would like to play along , or think you might want to collaborate on this one.

I believe with all my Heart
V1: You sent your son to save us sinners
And to steal us from the night
You came down in all your glory
And to lead us unto life
 
Ch1: I believe with all my heart
With all my soul and might
I confess and say again
You are Lord and you are light
 
V2: On the cross where we were ransomed
He shed his blood to pay the price
In the moment he’s forsaken
He became our path to life
 
Ch2: I believe with all my heart
With all my soul and might
The resurrection of the dead 
He is risen and He is Christ!
 
Bridge   Amazing Grace
That saved a wretch like me 
You took my Place
You set me ree
 
Ch2: I believe with all my heart
With all my soul and might
He is Savior He is King
The resurrection and the life!
 
V2: Holy Spirit won’t you lead me 
In this new life that I found
Draw me near to Jesus 
Lead me to that Holy ground
 
Ch2: I believe with all my heart
With all my soul and might
You are Lord and you my God 
The way the truth the life!

I Love this arrangement. You do need to add the other instruments such as bass and drums. It has a great melody and the guitar and piano blend together real well.
