For Even Me
#1
I was watching Tyler Perry's play, Madea Goes To Jail, and there was a part in it where the jailer was witnessing to a teenager and told her how Jesus died for all sinners, and she said "you mean he died for even me"?? And so I wrote this song.

Lord You know I've done, some things in my past, I'm not so proud of,
so forgiveness I did ask.
The bible says that you, hear each and every prayer,
the sacrifice you made for me, shows me you really care.

Chorus:

For even me, my sins they had me bound,
even me, I want to stand on holy ground.
Even me, your grace has set me free,
I want heaven to be my destiny, 
Lord I know you have a love for even me.

I've got loved ones, who've gone on before,
will I see them when I walk on heaven's shore.
But Lord, most of all, i want to see your face,
for it's by your love that I am saved, and by your amazing grace.

Repeat chorus:

Bridge:

The bible says you see, a little sparrow when it falls,
I know you've had your hand on me,
you are the Lord of all.

Repeat Chorus:

Ronnie    your song writing reminds me of  a 70's country and western mixed with the Carpenters and southern gospel.   It brings back a lot of good memories and the messaging brings back a wholesomeness I would expect in a county church  ,  I imagine you as a pastor somewhere .  It's a good thing.

I'm  curious how your recording your songs , and your vocal arrangements ,  that's pretty impressive .  Good song by the way ,  your performance really makes it pop.  There I said it!

Definitely got that 70's country vibe nailed. I listened to country radio as a child in the 70's.
I am a damp hamster, a small moist rodent with a pea-sized brain... so what do I know?!

Thank you for the compliments, bbraught, I use Cakewalk Sonar Home Studio on my laptop, and I record the lead vocal first, then add the tenor, baritone, and bass one at a time, and then just mix it out to try to sound equal!! The music track was totally Band In A Box!!

Sounds pretty good. Nice little song. The bass voice in the chorus gets off key a bit and in your bridge you get off key towards the end of it, but not too bad.

At least that's what my ears heard, but that's just me.

Great lyrics, Ronnie.

Merry Christmas and God bless you and yours!

Larry~
